“I think the most significant aspect of the president’s approach to foreign and national security policy is that he basically doesn’t care about it,”-amb. John Bolton.
Top Ten Obama Apologies from the ’09 World Apology Tour. (It was almost 11 but the Japanese government thought it might not be a good idea for Obama to apologize for the bomb we dropped on Hiroshima, thanks Japan!)
Losing the Iraq War.
Waging political war on Israel to “promote peace with the Palestinians”.
Obama Administration signs onto a UN resolution in conjunction with the 56 state Organization of Islamic Cooperation, to criminalize “religious hate speech”, i.e. international blasphemy laws.
Abandoning America’s national interests and strengthening the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East because, “a failure to change our approach threatens a deepening spiral of division between the United States and Muslim communities.”
Opening dialogue and rewarding our enemies while undermining US allies.
Scuttling the planned missile defense systems in Europe to appease Russia.
Turning our back on the ’09 Iranian protesters so as not to anger the regime.
Pushing the severely flawed START Treaty and nuclear disarmament.
Continuing to engage the half-pint dictator in North Korea.
Throwing Mubarak to the Islamist horde and ushering in the “Arab Spring“.
Caving to pressure from China and derailing Taiwan’s order of F-16’s, maybe Taiwan should consider buying more of our debt…
Obama Administration officials would be “satisfied” with a Muslim Brotherhood election win in Egypt.
“The Obama administration is set to offer more concessions to the Russians on missile defense, the latest one a proposal to share secret technical data on the U.S. Military’s most effective anti-missile interceptor.”
“On assuming office, President Obama assured us with a straight face, that his grossly irresponsible wastrel of a predecessor had taken the federal budget on an eight-year joyride. So the only way his sober, fiscally prudent successor could get things under control was to grab the throttle and crank it up to what Mel Brooks in Spaceballs (which seems the appropriate comparison) called “Ludicrous Speed.” Let’s head for the washed-out bridge, but at Obamacrous Speed!”-Mark Steyn, After America
One word; Obamacare.
The budget busting $800 billion stimulus bill that cost taxpayers a quarter million dollars a for every job “created or saved.”
In Obama’s vaunted green energy loan guarantee program, taxpayers lost $535 million to bankrupt solar company Solyndra, and gave $530 million to Fiskers to make cars in Finland, while another solar company tied to Nancy Pelosi got a grant of $740 million. So basically the $40 billion jobs program is a bust.
President Obama endorses the Ground Zero Mega-Mosque during a Ramadan dinner at the White House.
The Obama administration’s scandal known as “Fast and Furious” wherein ATF agents were told to let 2,000 guns be sold to straw-purchasers who then transported most of them across the border to Mexican drug cartels, two Americans and 200 Mexican citizens have been killed by these guns.
Nationalizing the student loan industry.
Awarding no-bid contracts to campaign donors in the pharmaceutical industry.
Delaying the decision to approve the Keystone XL pipeline until after the November 2012 elections, because not alienating his environmental leftist base is more important than creating thousands of private sector jobs.
Top Ten Obama Gaffes.
And who can forget the moment that brought us the beer summit? “The Cambridge police acted stupidly.”
This gaffe however has quite a hefty price-tag, $1.5 billion to be exact. Maybe next time he could just take Michelle on a vacation to Las Vegas and keep his comments to himself.
Then there was the gift gaffe in which British Prime Minister Gordon Brown was presented with 25 movie DVD’s, this was after Obama returned the bust of Winston Churchill.
The video I discovered from a mosque in Washington State and published here as well as at NewsReal Blog has finally gotten some national attention from our friends to the north. Ezra Levant is a conservative writer and television host of the great show “The Source” on Sun News TV. I still don’t know how he discovered my video but I’m very glad that he did. Ezra plays the clip toward the end of this segment, but the whole video is definitely worth a watch.
Looks like another case of Sudden Jihad Syndrome has nabbed Seattle police another terror suspect.
Here’s a portion of the news report.
Filing charges Tuesday, prosecutors claim Michael D. McCright swerved at a government-owned sedan carrying the uniformed sergeant and another noncommissioned officer on July 12. The men were uninjured, and were able to report the license plate of McCright’s Geo Metro to the Washington State Patrol.
In charging papers, prosecutors claim McCright – who allegedly goes by the alias Mikhial Jihad – had been in contact with Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif, who, along with another man, is accused of forming a plot to attack the South Seattle military processing station.
“Investigators have confirmed that the cell phone used by the defendant … was used on at least three occasions to contact Abdul-Latif prior to Latif’s arrest by federal authorities,” Senior Deputy Prosecutor Gary Ernsdorff said in court documents. “The FBI is continuing to investigate defendant McCright’s possible connection to domestic terrorism.”
Abdul-Latif, 33, and Los Angeles resident Walli Mujahidh, 32, were arrested weeks before the incident allegedly involving McCright and have since been indicted on terrorism charges.
The men are accused of plotting a suicidal attack on a military induction and processing center – the Military Entrance Processing Station – on East Marginal Way South in Seattle.
Federal prosecutors claim Abdul-Latif, idolizing Osama bin Laden and angered by American military actions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Yemen, and Mujahidh planned to storm the center with automatic rifles and grenades in order to kill recruits and Department of Defense employees working there. The plot was allegedly thwarted in the 11th hour after another Muslim man approached by Abdul-Latif in late May went to Seattle police, then acted as an informant.
I should note that this story from the Seattle PI misspelled his alias, the correct spelling is “Mikhail” although they did better than several other local news outlets I checked that stated his alias as “Michael” Jihad… *sigh*
The suspect also has a MySpace profile that should set off some red flags.
What’s really crackin? Asalaamu Alaykum to all the Muslim around the world! I am currently in seek on penpals from all over the world, both local and internationl. I am also in seek of a woman for a friendsship but ultimately a relationship. I may be what you have been looking for so get at the kid! I am in seek of meeting people from Arabian peninsula as well as North and East Africa. I would also encourage non muslims to hit me up as well. I am currently incarcerated so it is a must that you write me a letter first because I don’t have e-mail access at the time. I get releases next year so don’t waste any time. My contact information is below, I hope to hear from you soon.
The fact that he started using the name “Mikhail Jihad” when he became Muslim also says quite a lot. Michael McCright is a multiple convicted felon and had served six years behind bars for robbery. This begs the question, did McCright become a convert to Islam while in the federal prison system, and if so is the prison investigating. This is yet another example of the legitimate need for rep. Peter King’s hearings into Islamic extremism in the United States, the latest of which focused on radicalism in the prison systems. It’s not so strange that jihadis and jihadist sympathizers all seem to know each other online, the internet has become a breeding ground for terrorists but it’s also another useful tool for law enforcement.
This story also makes me wonder what the reaction to this latest development will be from the Seattle branch of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Though they probably don’t have time to respond while they’re busy being offended by the FBI during a “Muslim outreach workshop”. If I had to place a bet I would say … *crickets*
Thursday brought a horrific and highly coordinated terror attack against Israeli civilians in the southern region of Israel near the Egyptian border. A total of 7 people were killed and more than 30 were wounded in the multi-pronged attack along a highway, the terrorists used a combination of guns, suicide vest and a rocket propelled grenade (RPG). Timeline of the attacks on the Sinai border.
The attackers were chased by the IDF into the Sinai Peninsula where three Egyptians were killed in the crossfire.
“An Israeli plane had been chasing militant infiltrators along the border between Taba and Eliat and one Egyptian Central Security officer and two Central Security men were caught in the line of fire,” the army official said.
Needless to say when intelligence pointed to a group based in Gaza that had traveled through the Sinai to carry out the attacks, the retaliation from Israel the next day was swift and precise. Israel kills PRC leadership in Gaza strike.
So not even 24 hours after the vicious attacks against Israel and already the pro-Palestinian, hate Israel first crowd is out and making their opinions heard.
This guy wants to protest Israel after Friday prayers, to be fair that really isn’t different than any other Friday in the Middle East…
This guy is taking his job as Palestinian cheerleader very seriously.
Here we learn the importance of having numbers on your side, from a brave mujahideen.
He might not be a master of english grammar but at least it’s pithy.
Here we have an example of some leftist deep-thinking.
You have to give it to this guy, at least he’s honest.
Despite the broken english, I really hope he meant to use a metaphor here…
This one started off with a short history of Islam and then threw in an obligatory “Death to Israel”.
This guy sure sticks to the propaganda even in the middle of a passionate rant. Let’s just hope he doesn’t live up to his name.
This lovely Muslimah is talking about the kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit who has been held by Hamas for the last five years. This little lady is exemplifying her prophet Muhammad who also considered captured Jews to be, at the best, bargaining chips.
Just a little justification, nothing to see here.
Yes! Take a stand against those evil Israelis who keep flinging themselves onto our bullets! Jerks!
Later in the day terrorists had started lobbing rockets into Israel from Gaza… It must be frustrating to have such bad aim, huh?
I don’t think he made this particular call to Allah dialing out to the “Great and Merciful” prayer line, but maybe that’s just me.
Everyone has to have a goal, I wonder if this is in her five year plan?
Yeah! Israel you better not start nuthin‘! And by “start nuthin” I mean you better not retaliate when we shoot you… or something.
I thought Egyptians were busy reveling in their new paradise of democracy, maybe they’re just bored now after all those fun protests are over. Quick somebody start them on a hobby, like knitting or something.
Whew. Well that was a horrifying walk through a morass of moral degradation, evil and hypocrisy. I could hope that I won’t have to see tweets like this ever again but I know that’s not possible. You might have noticed my twitter handle at the bottom of some of those tweets, if you would like to follow me or just check out my twitter timeline click here.
Here are a few interesting excerpts from an article (complete with snarky commentary from yours truly) that appeared on the Shia News english website, Ahlul Bayt News Agency, which discusses a comment from Glenn Beck about the recent terror attacks in Norway and also discussed the danger of “Christian Zionism”. The article starts out:
Gloating over the recent killings in Norway of dozens of innocent people at the hands of an Israel-inspired Christian Zionist terrorist, Glenn Beck, the American right-wing talk show host, compared the victims of the shooting at a Norwegian summer camp to Hitler Youth in his radio program on Monday, according to a Daily Telegraph report.
He didn’t, of course, “gloat” over the killings, I’m shocked that this is how they chose to interpret his statement. Shocked.
Beck, a self-proclaimed Christian Zionist and Israel-firster, described the brutal carnage “as a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler Youth. I mean who sends their kids to a political camp? Disturbing.”
He stopped short of praising the murderer, suggesting that the victims got what they deserved.
In the past, Beck and his other Christian Zionist fellows lauded and cheered Israeli massacres of Palestinians, including the intentional murder of hundreds of Palestinian and Lebanese civilians in Israeli aerial bombing and artillery bombardment.
I would have liked to see a quote or a link to a quote supporting this charge but one was unfortunately not provided in the article. I’m sure they just forgot.
There is no doubt that Beck’s comments are grave and serious for what they represent and signify. This is no less than a new kind of Nazism raising its ugly head.
Christian Zionism is the new Nazi beast, a kind of a Fourth Reich, looming on the horizon. It is evil, murderous and genocidal.
Gee, why don’t you tell us what you really think?
Like their Jewish Zionist colleagues in hate, Christian Zionists would like to induce and expedite violence, tribulations, wars and genocides on a huge scale in order to accelerate the second advent of Jesus. This is why these genocidal monomaniacs wouldn’t mind if Israel exterminated millions of Palestinians, Muslims as well as Christians, as long as the genocide would effect and speed up Jesus’ second coming.
Now we’re on a roll…
Likewise, these criminal fanatics, utterly immune to rationality, reasonability and common sense, wouldn’t mind a no-holds-barred approach to those who disagree with them. Hence, liberal-minded people, leftists, Muslims and other Christians, such as Roman Catholics, would have to be slaughtered and annihilated, all in Jesus’ name.
These “Christian Zionists” sound dangerous indeed, please tell us more about these dangerous fanatics.
The ostensible embrace by a key representative of the American evangelical Zionist camp of the recent Oslo massacre and its perpetrator exposes naked a pornographically violent cult that calls itself Christian while actually doing Hitler’s work.
Just imagine the fact that we are talking about a combination of evil forces at work, including the nefarious powerful freemason cult, which penetrates many societies and governments, the Zionist movement, and neo-fascist Islamophobes seeking to ignite an internecine clash between Islam and the West.
Just incase you didn’t notice them going completely off the rails before, now they’re throwing in a freemason conspiracy just to make the circle complete. The crazy train is now going full speed ahead!
Finally, there are many short-sighted Jews who are effectively shooting themselves in the foot by joining ranks with these genocidal Christian extremists. Zionist Jews may be prompted to think that these mindless fanatics and gullible extremists are “useful idiots” who can be used to malign Islam and help the Israel win “the public relations battle.”
Wait now they’re “mindless fanatics”, “gullible” and “useful idiots”? I thought they were evil geniuses. Oh well, consistency is for losers, or something.
However, it should be understood that befriending, let alone embracing these dangerous people, would be akin to placing a venomous snake in one’s lap.
Wait, I didn’t understand that last…
It could kill you.

Did you catch the part when the wife of the accused said:
“Daycare center? That’s what they said, did they have proof? Oh, that’s horrible we can’t kill innocent people.”
She specifically used the term “innocent” when referring to the daycare but what some people don’t notice is that this (in her and her husband’s ideology) would not include the current and future military personnel. This is why it’s so easy for a person who does support jihad to claim to “denounce” it, all they have to do is throw in the caveat that they would never support killing “innocent” people. Most people would assume that this meant everyone in the building, this unfortunately is not correct. In this case it really does matter what your definition of innocent is.
I’ve written an article for the great site NewsReal Blog covering the Sammamish Mosque videos and the post is up now!
Why don’t you go check it out….

I noticed something today while dealing with the supposed “copyright infringement” on YouTube that took down my video clips from two previous posts. The two-hour “Daawah Workshop” video that I originally downloaded from YouTube that was uploaded by Imam Wassim Fayed has been replaced by a new version of the video.
Now it’s not been edited in the way that you might think, the new video he uploaded is one in which the “hit your wife” quote is still in the video. What he did change is the view, now that’s a pretty strange thing to change, you’re probably saying to yourself, that’s what I thought too and the reason I noticed it. Now let’s go to a couple of screen shots of the videos.
Here’s a screen-grab of the new version of the video currently on the Imam’s YouTube account. At exactly 1:37:39
And here is a screen-grab I did of the original video I have downloaded onto my hard-drive. At exactly 1:37:39
Now this is very strange indeed, why would the Imam need to replace his original video with one that has a smaller more obstructed view? I wonder if it has anything to do with the Sheikh who is sitting off to the side in the video, or the fact that at this exact moment in the video the Sheikh starts to speak in Arabic about “jihad”, since I don’t speak Arabic this and a few other words were the only ones I could recognize.
It’s really starting to seem like this Imam is trying to cover up something maybe to protect someone. Well my interest is piqued! I guess I have a new project to work on… Let’s see, how do you spell the Sheikh’s name again?
TO BE CONTINUED…
If you would like to view the video I now have it uploaded to PopModal and you may view it there. (I’ve tried to embed the video to this post but the video hosting site and the blog hosting site don’t seem to get along, my apologies.)
This video was taken from a “Da’wah (Proselytizing) Workshop” given by Imam Wassim Fayed, held at the Sammamish Mosque in Washington State and the focus of this ten minute segment is dispelling the “Misconceptions in Islam”. The “misconception” that we are learning about is the completely ridiculous lie that Islam oppresses women. In this video the Imam is explaining to his parishioners that Islam doesn’t oppress women because Allah gives men and women different rights. And then at about the 8:00 minute mark he quotes the Qur’an on how to “discipline” your disobedient wife. If you can’t speak sense to her and after you refuse her your bed (gee, what a punishment) and still she disobeys you, well, then you can hit her. But don’t worry, this is a command from Allah and Allah knoweth best.
“Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them
to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the
support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret
that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear
rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge
them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is
ever High, Exalted, Great.”
Qur’an Surah An-Nisa(women) chapter 4 verse 34
I wonder if the local city council, who is currently considering letting this group build onto their property, would like to hear about their flagrant disregard of State and Federal Laws regarding spousal abuse. I’m guessing one call from a CAIR representative about “Islamophobia” in America would squash any potential outrage. I’ll also be expecting a very strong condemnation from the National Organization of Women…. any minute now….
UPDATE: Well that didn’t take very long.
It looks like Imam Wassim Fayed has claimed a “copyright” on the video clips I uploaded to YouTube so they were taken down… Fair enough. It’s probably a good thing that I also transcribed the relevant part of the video so while it would have been nice to get the full context of the video, the point comes across just fine when you read his words…
@1:23:30 “Now why does the Qur’an says that men can beat the women? Allah was very, very clear in that there’s one instance and it has, and you have to understand it’s not everyman can beat up his woman he comes home he, he taste the soup, the soup is not salty he slaps his wife on the face, is why the soup is too salty. That’s not what Islam teaches, Islam doesn’t teach us this, unfortunately there are uneducated men that do that in Islam right, we don’t deny that, you can’t go and start to deny, it does happen, it’s gonna happens. But what does Islam teaches what the Qur’an says? (quotes in arabic) Even though men and women are not equal, Allah favors them in different ways, there has to be one person in charge, the one who is in charge in the house is the man, that’s how Allah favored man over women in this aspect, he favored women in different aspect, but this is one of the aspects Allah favored men over women he made them in charge of the house, one person need to be the leader. And it can’t be both of them, like two people are competing who’s the boss, it has to be one boss one leader, (quotes Qur’an in arabic) with Allah has favored one of them over the other, this is an example (points to screen) of how Allah favored men over women (quotes Qur’an arabic) and because of what they have spent, from their wealth.”
@1:26:00 “And those you fear who are going astray, (quotes Qur’an) the first thing what do you do? You advise them, you think your women, if your woman wants to remove her hijab, wants to walk on the streets, wants to do whatever she wants and she’s actually destroying the family structure, destroying the family life, she’s disobeying her husband, she’s harming her kids. What do you do? You advise her, you start talking to her and trying to make sense out of her, she refuse, she st(ray?) and she wants to go, and she wants to insist to keep doing what she’s doing? (quotes Qur’an) After that you leave them you don’t approach them, at night in the bed, you stay away from them and you punish them. You basically, Allah says what? First talk to them, then put them in time out. But then if they insisted? Well (arabic) then you hit them. And then the Hadith from Prophet, be very gentle, you don’t go and beat them up and you bruise them and you let the blood come out of them, that is not what Islam teaches. And then if it’s not gonna work, divorce is a second aspect, Allah has put a way out.”
