Muslim or Not?

The current wave of atrocities done in the name of the Muslim faith are spanning the whole globe.

From London to Russia, the USA to the Philippines. It seems that the Muslim faith drags in many believers and a certain element of extreme people, that believe in taking their writings to the extreme.

The left wing, bless em! in their very brave attempt to De-stigmatize and make all peoples neutral with equal say and balance for all, is demonstrated in so many circles and on so many levels its hard to shrug this off as a fad.

The extreme leftists like Corbyn and the ‘New Labour Party’ with snowflake liberals that continually fight all aspects of the system to enhance a populist belief in full integration.

US universities attempt to alleviate any concerns by pushing their system farther to left and consequentially more extreme.

One School took it upon themselves to give Christian children lessons in Islam taken to the extreme of actually praying.

As you notice in the film, many parents are upset and yet the board are eager to cut all people off after just being allowed two minutes to state their case, seemingly oblivious to these concerns of parents.

I am not anti Islam, or anti any religion, but if any religion preaches the opposite of what they are being allowed when welcomed to other countries then assimilation will be impossible for future generations.

Anjem Choudary makes absolutely no secret of his aspirations for the future, and is never apologetic for the violence, using tactics of aversion, or denial to put his message across.

Even to the extent of claiming Sharia Law will be the law of the UK one day, yet still left-wing politicians do nothing at all to attempt to stop this hatred at its core level being propagated.

True Choudary was jailed, but for the wrong reasons and it does little to stem the flow of laws that are incompatible with most western societies.

Perhaps that flow can never be stopped if our leaders have a fundamentally different agenda to the people that elect them. A fairly good analogy could be demonstrated in this video…..

It seems that there is actually no problem with radical Muslims at all. They are not actually part of the faith and instead are a separate series of individuals acting on their own independently their holy leaders like Choudary.

As such, according to politicians, you cannot tar a whole faith with the same brush!

Beheaded

This man is not a Muslim Terrorist it would seem. His belief however is that any infidel deserves this treatment and is one of seven billion that are happy to hand out the same punishment to all, from Coptic Christians to British troops on our streets.

It would seem that peoples that have escaped countries that practice Sharia Law are intent on bringing it back for themselves in future generations in their new found homelands.

C6bsia4XEAA3KPM

Even when they still suffer the same extreme penalties of an antiquated religion.

Sharia law_001

This falls nothing short of an erosion of the western society with an active target of spreading their faith with total eradication of any that specifically do not subscribe to their faith.

For instance if I deny Allah and take a stance of say…. an atheist……. this religion believes that anyone that kills me is not guilty of any offense!

That cannot be compatible with any western sort of thinking!

Preparing for War!

There are two interconnected things that really bother me today.

The first is the misconception that Russia is preparing for war. Reports  this morning are that Russia is beefing up its missiles on its border :-

Russia has announced it will deploy its nuclear-capable Iskander missiles in retaliation for NATO’s military shield on Russia’s western borders. (here)

Russian President Vladimir Putin also said Russia had to react to what it perceived as being a threat from US-led forces in eastern Europe.

‘Why are we reacting to NATO expansion so emotionally? We are concerned by NATO’s decision making,’ RIA quoted him as saying.

He added: ‘What should we do? We have, therefore, to take countermeasures, which means to target with our missile systems the facilities, that, in our opinion, start posing a threat to us.’

NATO orders four additional battalions to Russian border

That was on June 14th 2016 (here) where under the guise of defending Europe against attacks from Iran (Go figure) they need to place hundreds of missiles along Russia’s border. They have been increasing ever since.

America Trashes NATO Founding Act; Rushes Weapons to Russia’s Borders

The NATO Founding Act was agreed to between the US and Russia in 1997 in order to provide to Russia’s leader Boris Yeltsin some modicum of assurance that America wouldn’t invade his country. (here)

The USA told a bare faced lie to the Russians and yet…we claim HIM to be the aggressor.
What NATO is doing is so very foolish and at the beck and call of Obama, is not a smart thing to do.
The first point is that appeasing Obama is all well and good, but in the event of war it will be Europe that suffers the most.
Additionally perhaps the US thinks its insulated, and that perhaps it would not feel any potential threats? But realistically the Russians have been building less tanks and more subs like all the main countries in the world, and, what is the betting there a couple sitting within striking distance of NY right NOW.
That is apart from EMP Electromagnetic Pulse that have now been effected by most governments that can render all electrical machines and communications useless… from a couple of hundred miles UP! (here) As hard as Europe gets it …. so would the USA!

The second is the very real threat to Donald Trump. Over the last few weeks you have had more and more threats to him as he progressed towards the Presidency.

This would be convenient to some and has been suggested by media sites like the Conservative Tree-house many times. Obama wants war, and to stop Trump! What a perfect scenario for that happening!

Perspectives: Israel… Iran……The Great Satans

I once thought the best alternative for humanity was equality. What I know is that people and even nations are not equal. There are those with power and those without. If we examine the facts though, what do we get?

Israel wants Iran never to have nuclear weapons, and indeed Iran accepts this as part of the agreement when they joined the Non Proliferation Treaty.

The NPT is often seen to be based on a central bargain: “the NPT non-nuclear-weapon states agree never to acquire nuclear weapons and the NPT nuclear-weapon states in exchange agree to share the benefits of peaceful nuclear technology and to pursue nuclear disarmament aimed at the ultimate elimination of their nuclear arsenals”

Israel does not have to worry about this as Israel does not belong to the treaty (signing not ratified).

Israel, once again is sabre rattling the war drums with Iran, and it seems that every time we hear from them they want war.

Seeking to discourage a rapprochement between Washington and Tehran, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel threatened military action against Iran and dared others to do the same.

“Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu told the U.N. General Assembly. “If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone. Yet in standing alone, Israel will know that we will be defending many, many others.”

Gone were the Israeli leader’s usual witty comments – although he is always an interesting orator. And gone was any new commitment or analysis of peace with the Palestinians.

He goes on to say:

“The only difference between them is this: Ahmadinejad was a wolf in wolf’s clothing. Rouhani is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, a wolf who thinks he can pull the wool over the eyes of the international community.”

In fact there are other notable issues that the rest of the world adheres to, but Israel does not. For instance the countries that actually that admit to having nuclear weapons.

The five nuclear-weapon states under the NPT

United States of America, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China

Non-NPT nuclear powers

Pakistan, India, North Korea

And the remainder:

Undeclared nuclear powers

Israel

A policy of deliberate ambiguity (also known as a policy of strategic ambiguity) is the practice by a country of being intentionally ambiguous on certain aspects of its foreign policy or whether it possesses certain weapons of mass destruction. It may be useful if the country has contrary foreign and domestic policy goals or if it wants to take advantage of risk aversion to abet a deterrence strategy. Such a policy can be very risky as it may cause misinterpretation of a nation’s intentions, leading to actions that contradict that nation’s wishes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Policy_of_deliberate_ambiguity

In this video of nuclear testing, it does not show testing for Israel, so either they have not tested, or another country has tested for them.

Nuclear testing: All countries

This is the position that Israel adopts, and one that must be considered detrimental to the group as a whole, but is accepted, not by nations as a whole but by the US, and forced on other nations as acceptable. The general acceptance appears to be at least in one respect, because the US refuses to ratify the agreement (and is the only main player not to do so).

Israel for their part use this as a basis as to why they need not even acknowledge actually having a weapon at all even though they have approximately 100-200 weapons.

Iran for their part is a full party to the NPT, and claims that the moving of goal posts by inspectors inspired by the US, is unethical, and for the most part have stayed within the confines of legislation, and do not have nuclear weapons. Israel do not, and will not let arms inspectors into the country.

The obvious problem here is that a member of the NPT is not only being penalized for being a member, it is also being threatened by countries in and outside the NPT, which cannot instill confidence in the system.

If there is one thing that would motivate Iran to actually go to the step of making an atomic bomb, and have full capability of delivery, may be the constant threats of attack by other nations. or even an attack itself.

2,700-year-old Persian artifact a gift of U.S. diplomacy to Iran?

Very interesting developments are occurring between the US and Iran. The old hard line from both sides appears to be giving way to a thawing that has all the hall marks of something good.

Washington (CNN) — A 2,700 year-old silver chalice may be a new token of friendship between the United States and Iran, at least that’s the way Iran’s cultural heritage chief sees it.

Whatever the case, Mohammad-Ali Najafi was palpably delighted Friday to see the ancient Persian artifact return to its homeland. The ceremonial drinking vessel — or rhyton — had gotten snagged in a U.S. customs warehouse for years, held up by bad diplomatic relations.

It had been in New York since 2003, when an art dealer smuggled it into the country from Iran.

Customs officials have long wanted to return the rhyton to Iran, according to a New York Post report. But decades of frigid relations between Washington and Tehran kept it frozen in bureaucratic limbo.

The issues between countries will never be solved by head to head rhetoric, and perhaps Obama’s recent success with Syria, even taking into account a lot of back peddling was involved, may have motivated more possibilities……

Comparisons are being made of the latest round of mutual international diplomacy as being a ruse by Iran to ward off the now famous threat by Israel of what stage they will be forced to act .

In September of 2012, Benjamin Netanyahu famously gave his U.N. “red line” speech outlining the three stages of nuclear weapons development, and the point at which Israel would have no other course but to attack Iran.   Experts put that at the point that Iran has amassed enough uranium, purified to a level of 20 percent, that could quickly be enriched further and be used to produce an atomic bomb.

“At this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent Iran from getting atomic bombs. That’s by placing a clear red line on Iran’s nuclear program,” Netanyahu said.

Others like myself do not believe this to be the case, as the Iranians may have enough fusion material for perhaps two or even three nuclear weapons. The relevance of this is that they are still outmatched in conventional weapons, by the US. In addition the Israeli’s have a reported 80 nuclear weapons, and the US has enough to end the planet.

Assuming you have three or even 30, heck go for gold and assume its 300 nuclear weapons, they are still tactically outmatched for sheer power, and the means to deliver, from all directions 24hrs a day.

Survival is to any country, regardless of its affiliations is of prime importance, and and action that results in the destruction of everything that would require decades to recover from cannot be an option.

Regardless of how we are brainwashed into thinking that we are mixing with third world despots, we are looking at the oldest modern civilization on earth, who has been through many crisis in their 7/8000yr history. None of which was to push to self annihilation.

Even when Sarin was killing a million of their own people when fighting a Iraq war led by Saddam Hussein, and backed by the US, they did not respond in kind, when, they could have.

Indeed it has been more than 600 yrs since Iran declared war on anyone, so why would we believe that they have changed today. If the comparison is made to the US who has dropped two nuclear bombs and been in continuous war for some 70 years, why would we believe that there has been a shift in the view that the Iranians have on war?

The problem of course is that threatening the Iranians continually, and allowing these threats to be made openly on US soil will force the prophecy to be self fulfilling on the basis that self preservation sometimes dictates that nuclear weapons are bad, but prudence forces the obvious solutions to external threats.

Kenyan shopping mall

Has British ‘White Widow’ been killed?

A dead white woman has been found among Islamic terrorists killed by soldiers as they stormed the mall where 62 shoppers were slaughtered this weekend, Kenyan officials said. It is thought to be Samantha Lewthwaite, widow of 7/7 bomber Jermaine Lindsay, wanted by Kenyan police on a string of terror charges.

Germaine Maurice Lindsay (23 September 1985 – 7 July 2005), also known as Abdullah Shaheed Jamal, was one of the four homegrown Islamist terrorists who detonated bombs on three trains on the London Underground and one bus in central London during the 7 July 2005 London bombings, killing 56 people (including themselves), and injuring more than 700. Lindsay detonated the bomb that killed 26 other people on a train travelling on the Piccadilly line between the King’s Cross St. Pancras and Russell Square tube stations.

Jamal's wife Samantha Lewthwaite
Moments after the news broke, Al Shabaab, the Al Qaeda affiliated terror group behind the massacre at Nairobi’s Westgate Shopping Centre, used their Twitter feed to claim that Lewthwaite was safe.

It actually brings on the worst issue ever…. home grown terrorists……. I don’t think that is a good point considering keeping track of the obvious ones is time consuming enough.
Its is strange though, an average British girl joining a terrorist group, making it so much more difficult to comprehend…..
UPDATE:
So this woman is not dead and they have not found her, a cloak of secrecy hangs over her……

This week, Reuters reported that one intelligence officer and two soldiers had told them that one of the dead militants in the raid on the Westgate mall was a white woman. Kenyan police officers refused to confirm or deny those reports to the Daily Beast.

“She has become a mythical figure.”

But the British Foreign Office said that they were investigating claims of Lewthwaite’s involvement and Scotland Yard said they were continuing to offer assistance to the Kenyan police operation.

It seems she has slipped the net

Pyongyang…. the next US target?

As one issue seems to be near fruition, another raises its merry head, this time in North Korea (again).

It seems two American experts  Joshua Pollack and Scott Kemp have been analyzing the possibility of the Atomic Bomb potential of Pyongyang.

The experts say material published in North Korean scientific publications and news media shows that Pyongyang is mastering domestic production of essential components for the gas centrifuges needed to make such bombs

Their report published in remarks prepared for delivery Wednesday at a Seoul symposium and provided in advance to The Associated Press.

The United States and others long suspected North Korea was clandestinely building a uranium program, despite denials from Pyongyang. U.S. officials confronted North Korea in 2002 with claims its scientists were pursuing uranium enrichment, sparking a nuclear crisis. In a reversal, visiting Americans were shown in November 2010 what they called a sophisticated, modern uranium enrichment facility with 2,000 centrifuges at the North’s main nuclear facility.

Notice similarities with a selection of countries that have the same rhetoric, and form part of “We’re Taking Down Seven Countries in Five Years” We’re going to start with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, then Libya, Somalia, Sudan, we’re going to come back and get Iran in five years.

by Gary Leupp….http://www.dissidentvoice.org, January 17, 2007

It is as if there is a perpetual war finding machine operating in the US with experts to give legitimacy to each and every conflict with experts saying exactly what the war machine wants.

Our experts say:

News media reports and unclassified government documents showed North Korea imported large amounts of centrifuge parts in the early 2000s, Pollack said, but an apparent dearth of observed imports since then suggests that Pyongyang is making the necessary components at home.

It seems to me that you could also deduce that they are no longer making them and therefore dont need them.

Pollack said he and Kemp found “strong and clear” evidence in state media photographs taken inside North Korean factories of specialized lathes that produce very strong metal cylinders needed for centrifuges. He also spoke of accounts in North Korean propaganda and technical journals of iron and steelmaking consistent with the production of an extremely hard steel alloy that can resist high rotational speeds in centrifuges, although the final step of the process wasn’t described.

Hopefully this is not the only “strong and clear” evidence they have, as, it is reminiscent of the tubes found Iraq, before Saddams downfall.

But then again I suppose the war machine needs very little evidence to substantiate their claims…..

Full AP report.

It seems almost anything today is proof of an atomic weapon……

Anti-Assad Death Squads Responsible for Gas Attack

Assad’s wrongfully blamed for Ghouta’s gas attack. Evidence shows insurgents bear full responsibility. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was clear and unequivocal, saying:

“We have the most serious grounds to believe (Ghouta’s attack) was a provocation.” Assad had nothing to do with it.

“There is no answer to a number of questions we have asked, such as where the weapon was made – at an official factory or using homemade methods,” Lavrov added.

Clear evidence shows insurgents have sarin and other toxic chemicals. Pentagon contractors trained them in their handling and use.

They have surface-to-surface missiles to launch them. They have motive, opportunity and capability to do so. They’ve done it multiple times before. They’ve been caught red-handed with toxic agents.

According to Russian political analyst Sergei Markov:

“We hear this argument that the rebels are not technically or morally capable of doing such a thing, and we simply don’t accept that.”

“We’d like to see previous instances (of toxic chemicals used) properly investigated, because you will find that the rebels have used poison gas before in this conflict.”

US plane in 1961 ‘nuclear bomb near-miss’

A four-megaton nuclear bomb was one switch away from exploding over the US in 1961, a newly declassified US document confirms.

Two bombs were on board a B-52 plane that went into an uncontrolled spin over North Carolina – both bombs fell and one began the detonation process.

The document was first published in the UK’s Guardian newspaper.

The US government has acknowledged the accident before, but never made public how close the bomb came to detonating.

The document was obtained by journalist Eric Schlosser under the Freedom of Information Act.

How Powerful Are Today’s Nuclear Weapons and, If Used, How Would They Affect the World?

Ask a Scientist – April 2010

K. Carlson from Fort Collins, CO, asks “How much more powerful are today’s nuclear weapons than the ones dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, and if one was actually used, what would the impact be to people and the planet?” and is answered by Senior Scientist & Co-Director of the UCS Global Security Program Lisbeth Gronlund, Ph.D.

The atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were comparable to explosions of about 15 to 20 kilotons of TNT. It is estimated that these two bombs killed roughly 200,000 people in the near term, with more dying in the following years from cancer. In comparison, today’s thermonuclear weapons are much more powerful. An average U.S. weapon would explode with a yield of 300 kilotons of TNT.

The impact of a powerful weapon like this is a little hard to fathom. But here’s what would happen if one of these thermonuclear weapons were actually detonated. First, there would be a large initial blast, creating a destructive shock wave that would collapse most buildings out to three miles, killing most of the people in the area. The blast would be followed by a tremendous amount of heat, which could cause as much, if not more, devastation than the initial blast. In most cities, a big concern would be fires caused by the heat spontaneously igniting fabric and other items within four to five miles of the blast. These fires could coalesce into a firestorm fed by intense winds.

And then there’s the radioactive fallout—large amounts of highly radioactive dust and debris, which could be carried long distances by the wind and could eventually contaminate many thousands of square miles. This fallout would kill thousands of people, cause acute radiation sickness in thousands more, and increase cancer rates for decades across the contaminated area.

There’s also the sheer number of weapons currently in the world today. I remember about 20 years ago, when I was at Cornell, I was looking at the size of the world’s nuclear arsenal and I started looking up U.S. cities by population. Syracuse was about 100 on the list—with the tens of thousands of nuclear bombs that were out there, even a smaller city like Syracuse would easily be a target.

Today there are some 11,000 operational nuclear weapons worldwide. If even a small fraction of these were detonated, there could be global effects. One big concern is the amount of soot and smoke that would be produced from the kind of fires a nuclear bomb can create. A recent study that used climate models to study the effects of a nuclear exchange between India and Pakistan involving 100 weapons found that there would be enough smoke and soot to reduce sunlight and precipitation across the world. There would be shorter growing seasons, which would have an enormous effect on agriculture worldwide. A lot of people would starve. Although these models are difficult to verify, it’s clear that the detonation of just a small fraction of the weapons worldwide would have global effects that last for many decades. Everyone would be affected.

With nuclear weapons, it’s not rational to speak of numbers in terms of how many we purportedly “need” for deterrence; we need to look at arsenal levels based on the reality of the destruction they create. It should be illegal for nations to possess the means of wiping entire countries off the face of the earth in a span of 30 minutes. The limits have to be meaningful, not just political. With the amount of damage these kinds of weapons can cause, the United States has to renew efforts to reduce their numbers and ultimately work with all nations to rid them from the planet. If they continue to exist, it is hard to imagine that they won’t eventually be used—with devastating consequences. And that is unacceptable.

Dr. Gronlund’s research has focused on technical issues related to nuclear terrorism and fissile material controls, U.S. nuclear weapons policy and new nuclear weapons, space weapons, and ballistic missile defenses. She holds a Ph.D. in physics from Cornell University and is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Physical Society.

Syrian opposition condemns al-Qaida militants

Syrian opposition condemns al-Qaida militants

BEIRUT (AP) — Al-Qaida militants fought heavy street battles against Kurdish gunmen in northern Syria on Friday but reached a cease-fire with mainstream Western-backed rebels after fierce fighting near the border with Turkey.

The infighting, which ended with al-Qaida’s takeover of a border town, was some of the worst in recent months between forces seeking to bring down President Bashar Assad and threatened to further fragment an opposition movement outgunned by the regime.

Syria’s main Western-backed opposition group, the Free Syrian Army, condemned the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, the al-Qaida offshoot that overran the town of Azaz. It said the jihadis’ push to establish an Islamic state undermines the rebels’ struggle for a free Syria

Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian opposition

President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to “vetted” opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad’s regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.

http://washingtonexaminer.com/obama-waives-ban-on-arming-terrorists-to-allow-aid-to-syrian-opposition/article/2535885

This is really a very troublesome report of supplying terrorists with arms, with the sole aim of Regime Change, and this is not the first time that rebels have been supported by the US Government.

Several scholars have accused the United States of conducting state terrorism. They have written about the liberal democracies and their use of state terrorism, particularly in relation to the Cold War. According to them, state terrorism was used to protect the interest of capitalist elites, and the US organized a neo-colonial system of client states, co-operating with local elites to rule through terror.

Notable works include Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman’s The political economy of human rights (1979), Herman’s The real terror network (1985), Alexander L. George’ Western state terrorism (1991), Frederick Gareau’s State terrorism and the United States (2004) and Doug Stokes’ America’s other war (2005). Of these, Chomsky and Herman are considered the foremost writers on the United States’ involvement with state terrorism.

The issue in the article makes a realistic proposal that most atrocities are committed within the U.S. sphere of influence in the Third World. The premise being that if you influence you are basically in control of those fractions, and even today we see Sen John McCain met with rebels that are quite happy to murder indiscriminately.

John McCain Pushes Back Against Lebanese Report Of Photo With Syrian Rebel Kidnapper

The Daily Star of Lebanon reported that McCain posed with a Syrian rebel kidnapper in a photograph. His office denies that the man identified himself and condemned the group’s action. (AP Photo/Syrian Emergency Task Force, Mouaz Moustafa)

The Daily Star of Lebanon reported Thursday that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was photographed with members of a group responsible for kidnapping 11 Lebanese Shiite pilgrims. His office, however, condemned their actions and said that no one in the meeting called themselves by the names mentioned in the report.

The Star reported that Mohammad Nour, a chief spokesman and photographer for the rebel group the Northern Storm Brigade, was photographed with McCain, according to families of the kidnapped and one person who was released. Abu Ibrahim, another man with a reported connection to the group, was also in the photograph.

What we are seeing is more and more evidence of massacres on all parts of the web and you only need to Google or go to You-tube to see the atrocities taking place daily, and yet the West seems to have blinkers in place or consider these images as irrelevant evidence.

ImageOne could of course argue that Assad has killed more, but should the West support rebel  fractions, and in particular, those that for 11 years have been fighting against. More reports of Al Queda joining the fray in Syria anticipating US support. Additionally can those elements actually be controlled? if not a never ending war would be Syria’s fate for many years to come.

You can see the whole of this report here which asks:

Bashar Al-Assad’s New War: Has Syria’s Civil War Been Hijacked By Foreign Fighters?

The power struggles, political and religious affiliations, the regular defections, and almost daily changes in support cannot guarantee that any weapons sent to help ‘freedom fighters’ will in fact be in sole custody of the right group, which brings the question of whether they could ultimately be used against troops of the West.
