Blessed Samhain




Hi Folks!

Hope you have a spooky Samhain this evening,
this is my favourite Pagan celebration.




Construction drawings released: Flight 93 crescent now points less than 3° from Mecca

Construction drawings released: Flight 93 crescent now points less than 3° from Mecca

Blogburst logo, petition

From Error Theory:

The original Crescent of Embrace memorial to Flight 93 faced less than 2° from Mecca. That made it a mihrab, the Mecca-direction indicator around which every mosque is built. (Some mihrabs are pointed-arch shaped, but the classic mihrab is crescent shaped.)

The Park Service dismissed concern about the Mecca-oriented crescent on grounds that the construction drawings had not yet been finalized. “Those trees could move fifty feet, or three hundred feet,” said Project Manager Jeff Reinbold in the Spring of 2006, as if this kind of "tweaking" would make any difference (Crescent of Betrayal Ch.8 p.145-6).

The construction drawings have now been released, and yes, they moved the lower tip of the half-mile wide crescent about 300 feet, enough to change the orientation of the crescent by about 4.5°. Instead of pointing less than 2° north of Mecca, the giant Islamic-shaped crescent now points less than 3° south of Mecca.

Here is the original Crescent of Embrace:

"Qibla" is the direction to Mecca, which you can verify using any online Mecca-direction calculator (just type in Somerset PA). A person standing between the tips of the giant crescent and facing into the center of the crescent (red arrow) would be facing 1.8° north of Mecca, ± 0.1°.

Here is one of the new construction drawings:

Instead of facing a titch north of Mecca, the giant crescent now faces a titch south of Mecca (2.7° south ± 0.1°).

As with the original Crescent design, the upper crescent tip is the end of the 50’ tall Entry Portal Wall and the lower crescent tip is the last of the 50’ tall Maple trees on the bottom. The landscape overlays make the details hard to see in the thumbnail image above, but at full resolution they are fully legible. (Copy of source PDF, without the superimposed orientations lines here. Large file warning. Graphic is on p. 30 of 233.)

The Park Service was SUPPOSED to remove the Islamic symbol shapes

When architect Paul Murdoch’s winning Crescent of Embrace design was announced in September 2005, it appeared to show a bare naked Islamic crescent and star-flag planted atop the crash site:

Burned by the resulting firestorm of protest, the Park Service to agreed to get rid of the Islamic symbol shapes, but they never did. They added an extra arc of trees, and they call it a broken circle now, but the unbroken part of the circle, what symbolically remains standing in the wake of 9/11, is still a giant Islamic shaped crescent.

This is explained on the Park Service's own website, where the extra arc of trees is explicitly described as a broken off part of the circle:
In summary, the memorial is shaped in a circular fashion, and the circle is symbolically "broken" or missing trees in two places, depicting the flight path of the plane, and the crash site.
Those two breaks are the two ends of the extra arc of trees:

The extra arc of trees extends from blue circle to blue circle, marking the two “breaks” in the circle referred to in the Park Service’s official explanation of the broken-circle design. One is where the flight path breaks the circle (left), the other is near the crash site (center).

What is symbolically left standing (the unbroken part of the circle) is just this:

Remove the symbolically broken off parts, and you get the original Crescent of Embrace design.

The only change is that the crescent has now been rotated clockwise a few degrees. In the construction plans it faces slightly south of Mecca instead of slightly north of Mecca. For a parallel, imagine airline security discovering a terror bomber, then playing with the fit his suicide vest before escorting him to his plane.

They said they were going to remove the giant crescent. They claim they HAVE removed it, but they haven't. Symbolically, the design remains completely unchanged. The terrorists are still depicted as smashing our peaceful circle and turning it into a giant Islamic-shaped crescent, still pointing to Mecca.

The giant crescent is actually a mihrab

Here is the mihrab at the Great Mosque in Cordoba Spain. Face into the crescent to face Mecca, just like the crescent memorial to Flight 93:

Confronted with evidence that the Crescent of Embrace is actually designed to be the world's largest mosque, the Park Service sought advice from a pair of Muslim scholars. Both acknowledged the almost exact Mecca-orientation of the giant crescent and both offered overtly dishonest excuses for it. One said not to worry about the likeness to an Islamic mihrab because no one has ever seen a mihrab this BIG before:
...most mihrabs are small, rarely larger than the figure of a man, although some of the more ornamental ones can be larger, but nothing as large at the crescent found in the site design. It is unlikely that most Muslims would walk into the area of the circle/crescent and see a mihrab because it is well beyond their limit of experience.
Right. That's why everybody scratches their head at Mt. Rushmore. No one has ever seen Abraham Lincoln so BIG before. They just can't figure it out.

To be fooled by this excuse, you have to really really want to be fooled. The other Muslim scholar said not to worry, the crescent cannot be seen as mihrab unless it points exactly at the Kaaba:
Mihrab orientation is either correct or not. It cannot be off by some degrees.
In fact, a mihrab does NOT have to point exactly at Mecca, for the simple reason that, throughout most of Islamic history, Muslims in far-flung parts of the world had no accurate way to determine the direction to Mecca. As a result, it was established as a matter of religious principle that what matters is intent to face Mecca. This was recently affirmed by Saudi religious authorities, after Meccans realized that even most of their local mosques do not face directly towards the Kaaba. “It does not affect the prayers” assured the Islamic Affairs Ministry.

Faced with evidence of an Islamic plot, why would the Park Service send this evidence exclusively to Muslims for appraisal? Have they forgotten who attacked us on 9/11?

The Service has long since been apprised of the patent dishonesties retailed by its two Muslim advisors but they don't care. They wanted to be lied to, they knew where to go to be lied to, and they got what they wanted.

Michelle Malkin and Ed Morrissey

So where are the patriotic stalwarts like Michelle Malkin whose objections were instrumental in getting the Park Service to agree to remove the Islamic symbol shapes in the first place? If they knew in 2005 that the symbolic outcome of 9/11 should not be a giant Islamic shaped crescent why are they silent about this exact same symbolism today, after THEY were promised that this perversion would be removed?

Ed Morrissey urged his readers "to tell the National Parks Service and the Secretary of the Interior to rethink their plans," promising for his own part that "as long as that crescent remains in the design, I’m not donating a red cent to the memorial." Well Ed, the crescent does remain in the design, so please rejoin the fight.

The desertion of Malkin et. al. makes a difficult gap to fill, but we had better fill it, or the Flight 93 crash-site will soon be home to the world’s largest mosque.

Gathering Storm Weekly Storm Report

The Gathering Storm Newsletter
October 31, 2009

Here's a synopsis of the most important weekly news revealing the intimidation, infiltration and disinformationtactics used to soften-up the non-Muslim world for domination and the appeasers and apologists that support them because the Islamists are correct in believing the following:


occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their
so-called 'religious rights.'

As long as
the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be
regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone.

At 2% and
3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected
groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

From 5% on
they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the
population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal and work
to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the
Islamic Law.

Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means
of complaint about their conditions. Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam
will result in uprisings and threats.

reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic
killings and church and synagogue burning.

At 40% you
will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia

From 60%
you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions,
sporadic ethnic cleansing, use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax
placed on infidels.

After 80%
expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide.

100% will
usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' - the Islamic House of Peace - there's
supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim.

The Good German and the Good Muslim

"All that is necessary for
the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

(Edmund Burke)

I've been thinking about that quote from Edmund and thought
about the phrase "The Good German."

Wikipedia defines "The
Good German"
as those Germans who claimed not to have supported the Nazi
regime, yet made no claim to have opposed it in any significant way.

It is a saying among our troops that there are no real Nazis in Germany, only "good Germans." Every crime Germany committed against humanity seems to have been done by someone else.

The term has come to
be used to refer more generically to people in any country who observe
reprehensible things taking place - whether done by a government or by another
powerful institution - but remain silent, neither raising objections nor taking
steps to change the course of events.

Sound a lot like the moderate Muslims - or the 'Good Muslims' - of today.

Excuses are made that the Islamists do not speak for Muslims
and that the radicals represent a small minority of the Muslim population. Yet,
we see little organized efforts of
'Good Muslims' in standing up to this fringe element in their midst that has
supposedly hijacked their religion.

The most visible and organized efforts we see from Muslims
who have the ear of politicians, educational institutions and the media are
those of Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Society of North
America (ISNA), and the Muslim Student Association (MSA) - the first two were labeled "unindicted co-conspirator" in the Holy Land Foundation case. These
supposed 'moderate' Muslim organizations have been proven to have roots in
radical Islam and seek to turn America into an Islamic state - in their own words.

Though there are some anti-Islamist Muslim organizations
like American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AFID) who
try to combat the strategies of CAIR
, MSA, and ISNA, their voice and effect
is small. The very same politicians, educational institutions, and media that
give credence to CAIR, MSA and ISNA by submitting to their demands or accept
their propaganda as fact, pretty much ignore these anti-Islamist organizations
and individuals.

Muslims in the West are playing with fire. By standing by
and letting the Islamists set the agenda for their faith, they risk being swept
up in the unbridled and unmitigated retaliation of all 'Good Muslims' when the
Islamists believe we have been weakened enough in both thought and deed to
defend our rights, our nation, our family and our selves.

And this, like all enemies of democracy before them, is a
fatal mistake. No politician. No University President. No civil rights
spokesperson. No leftist columnist or liberal talk show host will be able to
prevent the retribution on 'Good Muslims' wherever they are found when hundreds
of thousands of Americans are killed or hundreds
of threatened suicide bombings
like those in Europe take place here in the US.

It's time for all 'Good Muslims' to make their voice heard
in no uncertain terms through at least
one national organization
that commands the respect of politicians,
institutions, organizations and the media.

But that will not happen until such an organization finds
the financial where-with-all on the level of the Islamist funded organizations
like CAIR, ASN and INSA and wahhabist mosques.
Money, lots of money, must be acquired by this anti-Islamist
organization from the 'Good Muslims'.

And here's how.

Muslims have an obligation to give a certain amount of their
income to charity. This is called Zakat. If the 'Good Muslims'
don't want the Islamists to speak for them, then take part of that Zakat and
create and fund a moderate Muslim organization that supports the anti-Islamist
view of the supposed Muslim majority. That kind of money from the millions of
Muslims in this country and millions more in the West can mount a strong
opposition to the propaganda of the current Muslim mouthpieces.

If the 'Good Muslims' want to dodge the bullet of
retribution that the Good Germans were unable to, then there's an old infidel
saying that they should take to heart.

"Charity begins at home."

Geert Wilders booed offstage

Dutch politician and movie
maker Geert Wilders raised a storm of disapproval and angry reactions with his
movie Fitna. At a recent appearance at Temple University
he was jeered offstage.

The movie Fitna, which at its
most basic is an anti-Islamic film, was shown before Dutch politician Geert
Wilders took the stage to give an address to students at Temple
University near Philladelphia Pennsylvania.

After the movie was shown,
and the address was given, Wilders offered a question and answer period but was
jeered rudely enough that he was taken away quickly by his security team when
the mood of portions of the crowd turned ugly.

Isn't wonderful how students go to college
to open their minds but once there close them like a trap.

Congratulations to the Temple University Students! You can check in and claim your award at Camp Delta, Guantanamo Bay.

Friday Afternoon Roundup - Enjoy Sharia Law on Broadway

Posted: 30 Oct 2009 01:16 PM PDT

The Obama Administration is finally ready to begin the Big
Push. No, not the one to stop the Taliban... but to pass a gargantuan
health care nationalization plan that the majority of the American people
are opposed to and that no one besides China can actually pay

While Hillary Clinton is off doing "valuable work" by holding
meetings with assorted Pakistanis, Joe Biden is trying not to pass out
during interviews, Pelosi and Reid are trying to shove ObamaCare down the
American throat like a bad case of strep. On the bright side, if ObamaCare
covers as many people as Obama's Stimulus plan did, I imagine it will
cover about two dozen people somewhere in Vermont.

Back in
Americaland though, more health care bills just means another civil war
among the Democrats. Naturally the first target was Senator Joe Lieberman
who was supposed to have been made an example of for actually trying to be
a moderate and resisting the party radicals. Lieberman instead survived
and even thrived.

Naturally the fun is just getting started. Ads
are already being run targeting Lieberman... by both sides, with the
conservative 60 Plus coalition warning of cuts in medicare and the
nutroots damning Lieberman as what else but a shill for the insurance

Of course using that same logic, Obama was a shill for
Wall Street... but the double standards just keep on coming. But it's a
lot of work nowadays, because Democrats have to begin selling Americans on
the idea that the economy has recovered and the recession is over...
despite all those lost jobs and the fact that nothing at all has recovered
outside of Wall Street, where taxpayer money was fueled into the same dark
maw that caused the problems in the first place.

Then there's
health care reform, which Democrats have figured will be hard to sell,
unless you can convince the American people that the economy is now good
and the US government is rolling in extra dough. And if they can't do that
by the 2010 elections, the veto proof majority is likely to be gone, and
the Dems will be left with the kind of congress the GOP had post 2006,
just enough power to take the blame, not enough to accomplish

Obama's numbers dropping, there's a stench of desperation coming off
the Dems. A bad foul stench.

And MSNBC, the default network of the
far left is running into trouble too, particularly with its newest, most
hyped and most radical member.
Rachel Maddow.

Most cable news ratings are going to show declines from
their election year heyday last fall, but for MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show
(which debuted in September, 2008) those year over year declines have made
October, 2009 its lowest rated month ever in both average viewers and the
cable news targeted adults 25-54 demo, down 54% and 65% respectively from
October, 2008.

Which suggests that MSNBC may be going the way of
Air America, at least in the case of Maddow, an Air America alum, who has
served as a forum for the most radical of the nutroots. While MSNBC is
that it beat CNN
, this is more of a reflection of how badly off CNN
is, than any kind of win for MSNBC.

It's not hard to see why Obama
is running scared. Cable News is going the way of Talk Radio. And its
biggest success, Glen Beck, comes out of the radio market. But it's also
not hard to see the rapid end of the CNN model, of network news in
general, because what sells best is open propaganda, not between the lines
bias. MSNBC's ratings are miserable, but they're still less miserable than
whose only real hope for ratings is the burgeoning Anderson
Cooper gay

The 2008 election probably marked the final break
between the old model of news, and the new one, that emphasizes scandals
and rants. As a guardian op ed points out, FOX has helped push CNN and
MSNBC to openly
embrace radicalism, dropping the facade of journalism.

This is an odd
and patronising fear, though true at one level. Fox is certainly
influencing CNN and MSNBC, but in a liberal, not conservative,
direction. That is, to compete with Fox's ratings-rich combination of
news and punditry, those networks have had to scramble to find leftwing
counterparts to Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly.

has been a boon for leftwing gabbers. MSNBC's Chris Matthews, Keith
Olbermann, Ed Schultz and Rachel Maddow, all of whom dedicate themselves
to railing against Republicans nightly, owe their careers in a way to
Fox's success in carving out a large place for punditry in the cable
media landscape. If anything, MSNBC is even more opinionated in a
liberal direction than Fox is in a conservative one. Even the news
anchors on MSNBC don't bother to conceal their anti-conservative
hostilities anymore. David Shuster and Tamron Hall scoffed openly at
Rush Limbaugh's NFL ownership bid.

CNN's Jack Cafferty, a grumpy
liberal version of Bill O'Reilly, also owes his career to Fox, as does
Rick Sanchez. CNN, which once prided itself on high-brow news
presentation, feels it has to get into the opinion game too.

And when the bias is open, it becomes harder to claim that
talk of liberal media is just a "right wing fantasy". Unintentionally FOX
has helped make the liberal media come out of the closet.

On the one hand this kind of ugliness is
the default mode
. On the other hand, there are no more rocks to hide
behind. It was possible to argue that Dan Rather was just doing his job
and not taking sides, but no one can even begin to make that same argument
about Cafferty or Olbermann. And an open bare knuckle fight may be
preferable to a thousand poisoned knives in the dark.

And that's
what really bothers the Obama White House.

Meanwhile in
worldchanging news, Hillary Clinton went to Pakistan where she had the
solution to all of Pakistan's problems. Embrace Obama's Tax-Fu. (

Next I would like to take a little time out to address an
article from Vdare, a site I do not link to, by Steve Sailer. You can
the text
of the article here. I'm not in the habit of replying to
everything that comes out of that burst sewage pipe, but since Michelle
Malkin thought the article was buzzworthy, I've decided to address

It's easy enough to destroy it point by point, but since the
article is a barely coherent hodgepodge of claims about Ashkenazi genes,
Jewish media power, ancestor worship, Goldman Sachs, Israel... let's skip
to the actual conclusion.

Steve Sailer concludes his "article" with
the following claim:

Thus Jewish demonization of immigration reform patriots
appears to have two motivations:


And this demonization
is the single most important reason that America’s immigration disaster
is still above criticism, long after it has become obvious that it is a
disaster, and despite the fact that an overwhelming number of Americans
are strongly opposed to it.

Really? One could almost imagine that the United States
Chamber of Commerce (the organization so many bloggers are now rushing to
had not
been pushing for more immigration and the legalization of illegal

For the 111th Congress, the Chamber will:

Continue to push for comprehensive immigration reform that: increases
security; has an earned pathway to legalization for undocumented workers
already contributing to our economy, provided that they are law-abiding
and prepared to embrace the obligations and values of our society;
creates a carefully monitored guest or essential worker program to fill
the growing gaps in America's workforce recognizing that, in some cases,
permanent immigrants will be needed to fill these gaps; and refrains
from unduly burdening employers with worker verification systems that
are underfunded or unworkable.

If you're confused by what any of that means, it means the
Chamber of Commerce wants to legalize illegal aliens already in the US,
increase temporary worker visas and increase the number of permanent

Why does the Chamber of Commerce want that? Because
it's about the money and about bringing in the cheap labor.

now, why do you think that prominent Republicans like Bush Sr, Bush Jr and
McCain were such big fans of open borders and bringing in more immigrants.
It didn't have a whole lot to do with Steve Sailer's Jewish conspiracy,
and a whole lot to do with the fact that the needs of big business are not
those that necessarily benefit America itself.

But unpleasant facts
like that are not nearly as sexy as blaming the whole thing on the

Of course Steve Sailer might reply that the Jews run the
Chamber of Commerce. But do Jews run the Catholic Church?

Sailer appears to blame Jewish romanticism of immigration, such
romanticism is hardly limited to Jewish immigrants, versus say Catholic,
Irish, Italian and Latino immigrants in the late 19th and 20th

In fact the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
has been a major force behind the push for legalizing illegal immigrants,
who happen to be heavily Catholic.

A poll by the Migration and
Refugee Services of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
that 69 percent of Catholics
supported legalizing illegal

That kind of percentages are far more likely to promote
unrestricted immigration, rather than the all-powerful Jews of Sailer's

I don't blame the Catholic Church for promoting the
immigration of more Catholics to America. I just wish they would limit
that support to legal immigration only. Nevertheless the Church has the
right to promote what it likes, as does every other group in America. It's
possible to take issue with what they promote, but it is perfectly
possible to criticize an organization's policies, without trafficking in
conspiracy theories about entire ethnic groups or trying to level all the
blame for an international problem on one particular group.

fact of the matter is that immigrant groups who came to America within the
last 125 years are going to be far more likely to see immigration
positively, than those who have not. Additionally big business has always
needed immigration as a source of cheap labor. Steve Sailer's article,
"Norman Podhoretz’s Why Are Jews Liberal? Not Good Enough", detours from
those basic facts to promote his agenda, which is to begin by claiming
that the Jews have taken over the GOP and to conclude by essentially
arguing that the Jews have taken over America, since as
Lawerence Auster
points out

To say that the Jews are the primary force that is
suppressing the supposed immigration restrictionist sentiment of the
overwhelming majority of Americans, to suggest that but for the Jews the
non-Jewish majority would have ended America's mass Third-World
immigration policy by now

... which as has been demonstrated is blatantly

The article's early mention of Joe Sobran props up Sailer's
only real thesis that runs through the piece, that Jews have leveraged
their power to make themselves above criticism. One wonders which universe
Sailer is living in, because in my universe the average newspaper takes
the side of terrorists over Israel, emphasizes the Jewishness of criminals
and is willing to print outright smears about Judaism.

A lot of
the American Far Right seems slow to learn the lessons that the European
Far Right is learning... that maybe they have bigger problems to deal with
than the Jews. But it's always easier to take the lazy Protocols of the
Elders of Zion way out.

Continuing the roundup, Obama's Muslim
advisor doesn't regret anything
said on a Hizb U Tahir program
, only that she went on it. Which is the
sort of thing that we would buy if we believed that she was either
ignorant of Hizb U Tahir, something that itself would make her unqualified
to advise Obama on Muslim issues. So either Dalia Mogahed is a liar and in
bed with Islamists, or incompetent. Either way she should go.

But of course we know that Obama's people have a history of quietly making
contact with Islamists and terrorists. Even before he crawled into the
White House.

Vlad Tepes meanwhile cites the new face of Cambridge
grads, forget stiff upper lip and tweed,
think Burqas.

Cambridge University will allow female Muslim students
to wear burkas at graduation ceremonies, it emerged yesterday.

By tradition, students are required to wear dark suits and white shirts
under their graduation gowns.

Goodbye Cambridge.

At Boker Tov Boulder,
First Amendment "NOT WITHSTANDING"

Readers will note that the Organization of the Islamic
Conference has a membership of 57 states. When Candidate Obama alarmed
some folks by claiming he had campaigned in 57 states, there was a hue
and cry -- not about what he had said and what it might mean, but
against those who had noticed.

Back in the dusty BtB archives, I
once wondered aloud about the "other countries" in Obama's statement
that "we can't ... expect that other countries are going to say OK." I
wrote then that

I don't get it. What other countries? Does he
mean we take our orders from the OIC?

I guess that's exactly what he meant.

The White House Friday highlighted a new
multi-million-dollar technology fund for Muslim nations, following a
pledge made by President Barack Obama in his landmark speech to the
Islamic world.

The White House said the US Overseas Private
Investment Corporation (OPIC) had issued a call for proposals for the
fund, which will provide financing of between 25 and 150 million dollars
for selected projects and funds.

Now what are the odds that the money will directly or
indirectly benefit terrorists? Considering the Zakah money that most
Muslim businesses provide, a sizable portion of which goes to Islamists or
terrorists... we might as well just give it to the Taliban

Oh wait...
we already are.

Meanwhile the way is being paved with a spate of articles
claiming that there really is no group called the Taliban, that it's a
broad coalition, most of whom just want food and water. The same claim was
also made about Al Queda.

For those with longer memories, the same
claim was made about the Viet Cong, who we were assured were mostly not
Communists and perfectly jolly fellows who would happily lay down their
arms if we just gave them reason to trust us.

No less a personage
than Martin Luther King
delivered this kind of nonsense
back in the 70's.

What of the National Liberation Front -- that strangely
anonymous group we call VC or Communists? What must they think of us in
America when they realize that we permitted the repression and cruelty
of Diem which helped to bring them into being as a resistance group in
the south? ... Surely we must see that the men we supported pressed them
to their violence. Surely we must see that our own computerized plans of
destruction simply dwarf their greatest acts.

How do they judge
us when our officials know that their membership is less than
twenty-five percent Communist and yet insist on giving them the blanket
name? What must they be thinking when they know that we are aware of
their control of major sections of Vietnam and yet we appear ready to
allow national elections in which this highly organized political
parallel government will have no part? They ask how we can speak of free
elections when the Saigon press is censored and controlled by the
military junta. And they are surely right to wonder what kind of new
government we plan to help form without them -- the only party in real
touch with the peasants. They question our political goals and they deny
the reality of a peace settlement from which they will be excluded.

Well luckily Martin Luther King was absolutely right. We
struck a peace settlement with the Viet Cong who were not all Communist
and today Vietnam is a thriving utopia where its people have free
elections and all are welcome to... oh wait. We struck a deal, the deal
was worthless... and the nice folks that Benedict Arnold Jr told us are
not at all Communists... went and created themselves a Communist
dictatorship with no free elections.

Who knew? And who wants to bet
that by the time Obama's people are done, they'll find some nice Taliban
to negotiate with, force Karzai to cut a deal, and then take the
helicopters from the embassy while beneath us the Taliban return to
implement the glorious
gender justice of Sharia law?

But gender justice in Islam is not completely a lost cause. Never fear.

FaithFreedom, we have the story of a Muslim wife who tried
to honor kill her husband

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A 37-year-old wife from New
Brighton tried to slit her husband’s throat as he slept because he was
not the devout Muslim she believed she married, and pressured her to eat
pork and drink alcohol, authorities allege.

In a rambling,
four-page handwritten confession, Rabia Sarwar laid out the “mental and
emotional cruelty” that led to her trying to kill her husband, Susan
Wagner High School teacher Sheikh Naseem, early yesterday morning, a law
enforcement source said.

“I tried my best to cut his throat,” Ms.
Sarwar admitted, according to court papers. Except Naseem woke up during
the attempt, and took the knife from her, authorities said.

The way the law enforcement source describes it, Ms. Sarwar, who is
Pakistani, told investigators that Naseem, who is half-Pakistani, had
presented himself as a devout Muslim before the two had wed five months

But after the marriage, she discovered more about him, she
told investigators — before meeting her, he had only dated non-Muslims,
and he considered Salman Rushdie to be one of his favorite

Well clearly he had to die.

But the good news is
that Rabia Sarwar represents a way forward for Muslim women to gain equal
rights to kill men who aren't Muslim enough.

For centuries Muslim
men have been able to kill Muslim women who they felt weren't Muslim
enough. Now in a stirring tribute to Sharia's gender justice, perhaps
Muslim women will enjoy the same rights to slit throats, throw acid and

Between female suicide bombers and female honor killers,
you can't deny the fact that Islam is doing its best to give Muslim women
an equal role in carrying out the true teachings of Islam.

But you know aside from the homicidal stuff, the rest of the picture doesn't look
good. See
he following article at Reality Check

The 2009 report by the World Economic Forum has listed
predominantly Islamic nations in the bottom of their annual Global
Gender Gap (GGG) Index. This included such major nations as Pakistan
(ranked 132 out of 134), Saudi Arabia (ranked 130 out of 134), Iran
(ranked 128 out of 134), Egypt (ranked 126 out of 134), and Turkey
(ranked 129 out 134). Yemen, which is 99 percent Islamic, was the bottom
ranked nation as 134 on the Global Gender Gap Index. The only nation not
predominantly Islamic in the bottom of the Global Gender Gap index was

In addition, the 2009 World Economic Forum Global Gender
Gap Index report does not include rankings on a number of significant
and predominantly Islamic nations where women are oppressed. Somalia
(population of nearly 10 million) was not included in the index. Endless
numbers of reports of the stonings and Islamic supremacist abuses of
women have been reported in Somalia in the past year, including the
stoning to death of a 13 year old girl based on “Sharia law” in October
2008. Sudan (population of nearly 41 million) was also not included in
the World Economic Forum Global Gender Gap Index. Among other nations,
Afghanistan (29 million) and Iraq (29 million) are also not included in
this Global Gender Gap Index. With the index not reporting on these 109
million, the desperate fate of an estimated 50 plus million women are
not included in this Global Gender Gap index report.

Even with
these significant exclusions from the Global Gender Gap index report,
the bottom 10 index nations (excluding Benin), which are all
predominantly Islamic nations, represent a population of over half a
billion individuals. These include Yemen (134 out of 134), Chad (133),
Pakistan (132), Saudi Arabia (130), Turkey (129), Iran (128), Mali
(127), Egypt (126), Qatar (125), Morocco (124). If women represent half
of the population in these nations, then these bottom 10 predominantly
Islamic nations demonstrate the ongoing oppression of an estimated 250
million women.

But there's good news. You don't have to go to Chad or Mali
or Pakistan to enjoy Sharia law.

You can get
it right here on Broadway.

The much-hyped, soon-to-open Breslin restaurant,
situated in the 12-story Ace Hotel on Broadway and 29th, is giving
members of the Masjid Ar-Rahman mosque across the street some agita.
“Five times a day, there’s a hundred cabs on the street—the good news is
you can always get a cab,” co-owner Ken Friedman told the Transom the
other evening. He said some mosque visitors “object to seeing people
drink alcohol.”

After the recent FergusStock, a festival during
which famed British chef Fergus Henderson cooked whole pigs for a rapt
crowd of New York chefs and foodies, Mr. Friedman said the mosque’s
leaders called a meeting with the hotel. “They said, ‘Can you move the
bar?’” he said. “And I laughed. And the guy said, ‘Oh, you think that’s
funny?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, that is funny, that is really funny, because
we’re not going to move the bar just because you discovered we’re
serving booze.’ Can you name one restaurant in New York that doesn’t
serve booze?”

Mr. Friedman and his partner, Spotted Pig chef
April Bloomfield, did agree to nix plans for a dive bar in a townhouse
next door, but as for the restaurant, “I said, ‘This is the United
States of America and we’ll do whatever the fuck we want.’” He said the
mosque had suggested it couldn’t control the behavior of “a few bad
eggs”; i.e., “we could get a brick through our window.” Mr. Friedman
said he made the police aware of this threat.

Enjoy your Sharia law. Now on Broadway.
