Things which will never come up in European Arab Dialogue

This is not unusual, just one of the cases which made the news. Of course it will never make it to the mainstream media in the United States. The sixteen-year-old girl who stabbed one of her attempted rapists is still awaiting death by hanging in Iran.

Perhaps one of our MESA professors can explain how Arab-Muslim culture pioneered women's rights? I could use some re-education about now. Plus, I love camping.

KARACHI: Sixteen-year-old Isma Mahmood was deported to Pakistan last month after serving six months in shackles and handcuffs in a prison in Saudi Arabia. Her crime: being raped by a Saudi man.

“It’s difficult for me to talk about what happened to me, from rape to prison and from prison to deportation,” Isma told AFP in the office of a rescue trust in Karachi where she sat with her sister Muna, 18, who was also deported.

Isma’s parents, originally from Multan, were trafficked to Saudi Arabia around 20 years ago. But in Isma’s case, being born in Saudi Arabia was no help when she was raped last year in Medina. “I was the victim, I was raped and molested but I was named as the accused, and the man who committed the crime was not touched,” she said.

“He first kidnapped me, dragged me into his car,” Isma said. “At first he asked me to sleep with him and offered good money. When I refused and tried to resist, he warned me of dire consequences and raped me in the car.” The unnamed man warned her she would be imprisoned if she went to the police, and said that the Saudi sponsor who brought her parents to the country through a Pakistani agent would have them all expelled. The sponsor too threatened Isma and Muna, she said, asking that the sponsor’s name not be revealed to spare her family any additional grief. “I and my sister went to the police expecting justice, but after a few hours of filing the report the police changed it,” Isma said. Under pressure from the Saudi sponsor, Isma’s parents asked her to withdraw her report. “My sister Muna tried to help me out but was also arrested and put in prison only because she spoke for me,” she said.

Once in jail, their nightmare began in earnest, Isma said. The women prisoners were mostly Pakistanis, Indonesians, Bangladeshis and Nigerians who came to Saudi Arabia through trafficking networks and were charged with prostitution, she said.

“When I used to protest against the ill treatment they beat me on my back,” Isma added. “We were chained all during this period. The only time jail officials removed the chain was during lunch or when anyone went to the bathroom or at prayer time,” she said. “Once a jail official offered me help and assured me I would be released if I agreed to sleep with him. There was a Pakistani woman who was over 40 years old and developed AIDS in prison, but she remained in chains before she was deported to Pakistan,” she added.

Isma and Muna are now in the care of the Ansar Burney Trust. “It’s pathetic that all this happened with Isma at the hands of a fellow Muslim,” the trust’s president Ansar Burney told AFP. Burney says many poor women and girls from South Asia are lured with promises of good money working as maids or nurses, but their Arab sponsors and Pakistan agents later force them into prostitution.

But look at the bright side, her family may not shoot her in the head, dump acid on her, or burn her alive. :D

Eurabia wages war against The Force of Reason to obliterate The Legacy of Jihad

I like to read several books at once. Dry non-fiction books, the spinach of reading, are often too difficult to read in huge chunks. When loaded with healthy facts, books can cause the mental palate to become overwhelmed. After about 40 pages I find myself going back and reading the last page again. That's a sure sign my brain has reached temporary storage capacity.

Sometimes books read best in combinations. They are like the chocolate and peanut butter of books, tasty when read together. One book exemplifies or adds some meat to the other.

I don't think any two books are more compatable than Eurabia, by Bat Ye'or and The Force of Reason, by Oriana Fallaci.

For a good beverage to compliment the entire reading experience I'd suggest The Legacy of Jihad, by Andrew Bostom.**

Oriana Fallaci begins the Force of Reason with a short section describing the vicious threats, legal attacks, and vitriol which came after the publication of The Rage and the Pride. With Eurabia sitting next to you, having digested a mere fifty pages, this pincer attack on Fallaci, from all sides, will make complete sense. If you've read The Rage and the Pride you know Fallaci didn't say anything honest students of Islam and observers of modern terrorism haven't been saying all over the Internet and in other books. In one section of The Legacy of Jihad you can read a couple dozen folks who predicted the revival of political, imperialistic Islam.

In the next section of The Force of Reason, Fallaci moves on to a brief history of jihad warfare against Europe without removing all the details which have been carefully excised from history classes and Middle Eastern studies classes all over the world. With The Legacy of Jihad sitting next to you, heavily sourced and footnoted, you realize Fallaci is recounting a past which is slowly making its way down the memory hole. Eurabia explains this is EU policy going all the way back to the early 1970's. The European-Arab Dialogue has been a one-way affair. The Europeans have placed hope, global aspirations of power, oil supplies, and hatred (of Jews and America), over centuries of experience. If enlightened self-interest and mere economics were the only motivations, the Europeans would have used their technology weapon to counter the oil weapon. But that would require a united front without traitors circumventing the technology ban, impossible for Europeans.

In modern academia, it's taken as a given that Islamic nations simply appeared on the borders of China, Spain, and Eastern Europe. The gory details, or any details, have vanished from education.

When President Bush talks about extremists hijacking a peaceful religion everyone should realize this is tantamount to condemning thousands of innocent people to death in our next so-called "wake-up call." Sadly, he's the only president since Jefferson to do anything substantial against the global jihad. Whether Bush knows it is another question.

Hunker down. This "long war" is almost 1,400 years old. Every sign points to it going nuclear before substantial action will be viewed as justified. On the domestic front, Muslim spokesmen whisper sweet lies into every important ear, from President Bush, the mainstream media, your local community college president, down to one-way "interfaith dialogues." Conversion, blasphemy, or apostasy in Islam means death, so I don't see listening to reciprocal dialogue being advisable for Muslims.

Europe is in graver danger than it was in WWII, but nearly every government is Vichy. The EEC-EU was built on the twin pillars of Jew-hatred and anti-Americanism. To accomplish their geopolitical goals policymakers deluded themselves, chose to punish honest history, and sacrifice their indigenous European populations on a social experiment. This experiment was doomed to fail. Anyone who'd read the Qur'an or studied history carefully could have seen it. But hatred and lust for power are the most compelling motivators for people who take survival for granted. Nothing clouds thinking like grandiose schemes.

**Appetizers could include anything by Robert Spencer, Ibn Warraq, or Ali Sina's (Faith Freedom) new book, among many others. The truth is outing, but stupidity evolves like bacteria, ensuring its survival for all time.

America's Elites and Saudi Money

Read it and puke.

Our educational system is, if anything, worse. As we are working hard to secure our borders from terrorism and fighting terrorist movements overseas, the same people who are financing much of the world’s terrorism are pouring money into American colleges and universities with the intent of undermining support for our government’s efforts in the War on Terror.

American universities – those idealists who claim racism, misogyny, religious persecution and violations of human rights are antithetical to their mission – are more than willing to accept funding from the Wahhabist Saudi regime that practices such behaviors. The funds go to set up Middle East Studies centers that serve to indoctrinate future generations of American college students to support the goals of overseas terrorists and dictators. These centers also promote outreach programs in which teachers and professors in our local communities are trained and provided with curricula that preach a radical anti-democratic, anti-American, and frequently anti-Semitic agenda in our primary and secondary school classrooms. Our children are their targets.

Knowing the government, media, and academia are bought and paid for with Saudi money shouldn't upset me any more. The comical, yet Ivy League, screed suggesting AIPAC controls the nation makes this particularly galling.

Which nation did 15 of the 19 hijackers call home? Which nation is an apartheid kingdom with no freedom of religion whatsoever? Which nation has an abysmal human rights record, including bureaucratic terms for lopping off heads and hands? Which nation spends billions all over the world creating militant Muslims who eventually do damage all over the world?

Maybe I'll convert so I can be trampled at the Hajj. It beats waiting around for our institutions to side with the American people.

The EU is bound together only by its hatred of Jews and anti-Americanism.

The UN supports genocide in Darfur, Israel, and the United States, Iran having just gained a seat on the disarmament body. Nobody discusses Saudi apartheid, Islamic imperialism, da'wa, demography, or dhimmitude, save intrepid columnists like Diana West or Mark Steyn. The Internet is the only reliable source of information, and only if you know how to use it.

The U.S. university system is controlled by Stalinsts.

The mainstream media, governed by over-reliance on wire services, political agendas, stupidity, and a lack of curiosity, along with the previously mentioned anti-Americanism and Jew-hatred have not educated the masses of ordinary folks, who don't have all day to get their news, one whit about the true global situation.

South America is descending into totalitarianism. Vote Communist, you'll never have to vote again. Or, everyone will for the same guy.

Climatarians around the world are obsessed with global warming which is mostly due to solar warming. Climatarians now speak of mass extermination of the human race in positive terms, the United States being their favored target.

Russia and China continue to play Cold War games.

Islam is getting out of control and policy-makers still haven't read the important books (Bat Ye'or, Robert Spencer, Ibn Warraq, Oriana Fallaci, too many others to list).

I'll leave it for my readers (I love you, man) to decide what all this means.

Once again French policy (from the end of WWII to the present) is directly responsible for many of the problems I listed.

If you think it sounds like another world war is already in progress, or about to begin, I'll indulge your pessimism. Unlike many people, I envy those folks, I never assume a positive outcome or mentally leap to victory in any war before the actual outcome of the major battles.

UPDATE: Now for the bad news. LOL

American University Totalitarians Strike Again: Ohio State University

Hat tip, Jihad Watch/Dhimmi Watch

Anyone who claims the American university system is not run by the totalitarian Left is nothing but a pathological liar or horribly misinformed. The Academic Bill of Rights proposed by David Horowitz would be one small step in the right direction.

It was getting bad when I was in college. Now it's insanity writ large.

Parents, don't let your babies grow up to study for a Bachelor af Arts. Send them to North Korea for a more balanced approach to indoctrination.

Speaking of pathological liars and totalitarians ruling America's universities, Front Page tries to whittle down Noam Chomsky's lies to a top 100.

It must have been difficult to narrow them down so much after his voluminous output of specious crap.

Science beginning to catch up with religion

When I took science, many moons ago, the preferred model for life on Earth was what you might call a Steady State Earth. The ooze produced some sort of early life which slowly progressed into what we see today. The Earth was viewed as relatively calm. More specifically, calderas, space impacts, and earthquakes were viewed through the lens of recorded history.

But in various religious traditions there were stories of global floods, mountains appearing suddenly, out of nowhere, and fire or ash raining from the sky.

Well, guess what? Religion was right.

Now we know Catastrophism is what pushed human evolution. The most recent example is the eruption of the Toba supervolcano (caldera) approximately 70,000 years ago. The human population dwindled under 100,000. Our species nearly went the way of the dinosaurs before it had a chance to get started.

Some argue the Yellowstone caldera is "due" for an eruption. In geologic terms that could be 10,000 years from now, 50,000 years from now, or tomorrow. Research has shown the caldera breathes, the land moving up and down in response to the magma chamber miles below. Yellowstone is just one of numerous supervolcanoes which dot the Earth.

How could a mountain appear from nowhere? Either volcanism or a large impact from outer space?

Global flooding? The end of an ice age or impacts again.

While humanity discovers more reasons to, and a catalog of means for, destroying one another, science is tending more and more towards evidence we needn't bother.

"Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep."

William Shakespeare

I'm not the granola-crunching, hold hands, give peace a chance type. I'm a realist when it comes to human behavior.

However, as the evidence mounts it's becoming increasingly clear our focus should have remained on survival, just as is must have been for our neolithic ancestors. Just when we thought we could conquer nature, science (the means for doing so) has proven nature's teeth are much larger and sharper than anything we can grow, or hope to grow, in the near future.

Conquering the Earth from other humans is a pyrrhic victory at best.

Iran can build nuclear weapons, but the fault lines which crisscross their land will never surrender. Portland's Greens can howl about global warming and saving the Earth, but the Cascades have already signed Portland's death warrant. Who will save Portland from the Earth? It's a question of when, not if.

Now that we are beginning to understand the nature and scope of these types of events for the first time in human history, in terms of science instead of religion, it would behoove us to take them seriously and factor them into our planning.

But short-sightedness is much less frightening and simpler.

California faces battle over gays in textbooks
I have no problem with consenting adults doing whatever it is they do in the privacy of their homes. But, really, doing it in textbooks isn't sanitary. It's just not right!
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California school textbooks would highlight the role gays have played in the history of the nation's most populous state if a new proposal that has angered conservatives passes the state Legislature.

History books record contributions by gays but their sexual orientation is often ignored, a situation gay activists say is inexcusable in California, home to a large gay population in San Francisco, a city that briefly made history in 2004 by issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The proposed bill would require school textbooks to include lessons on how gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender persons have helped California develop.

Oh, never mind.

I'm straight, boring, and proud! Would you like to hear all about my struggles as a heterosexual man? Yeah, me neither. The only problem I have with the neverending stream of gay issues is trying to stay awake. Is it necessary to discuss sexual orientation when writing history? Usually the historical figure has a SO of some kind, often mentioned in passing. In California politics, sexual orientation becomes obvious through public statements or actions.

Which reminds me, what would it mean for someone to be "openly" gay in the military? Maybe I have an overactive imagination but I'm seeing that guy with the leather hat in the Village People throwing beads off an M1A2 Abrams.

"We're going to have a fabulous occupation! But this place needs some color!"

The point of this post is really to be funny. Not one "LOL" so I'm tempted to delete it. But I won't because I'm proud of four comments, only one being mine. Yes, that's a very small victory. Please, don't ruin it for me by pointing out other blogs. *sob*

But if there is a serious point, it's trying to figure out what's really going on in California. Is the idea to add gay activists to textbooks?

If so, I suggest we nail down who was president during the Civil War and whether or not the Germans won that one before we move on to teaching our kids who formed ACT UP or Queers for Palestine. Who, by the way, should steer clear of the actual "Palestine" or risk being "killed in the worst ways possible." That's a quote from "Red" Ken Livingstone's favorite moderate cleric.
