Brent Bozell has announced the Media Research Center’s “Notable Quotables” for 2005, awards for the year’s worst reporting. The best comes from Asian-American CNN anchor Carol Lin, in which she reported, “It’s been 11 days since two African-American teenagers were killed, electrocuted during a police chase, which prompted all of this.”
She was talking about the riots in France. (And the teenagers were Tunisian-French.)

The Sunday Times of London reports, “Sheikh Nazem Abu Salim, 40, an Israeli citizen and imam at the most prominent mosque in Nazareth — Shihab al-Din— has called for jihad in Palestine.”
You know, it’s Israelis like these who give the country a bad name!
Meanwhile, his call for jihad is confusing. Does he mean he wants a jihad–as opposed to genocide bombings? It’s reminiscent of when imams from all over the Muslim world in 2003 started calling for jihad against America. Did they mean as opposed to flying airplanes into American buildings?

An earthquake? A terrorist? A hurricane? No! Something much more crippling than any of the above: a UNION!
Just last week I was driving behind an ugly chick with a lot of bumper stickers on her car, one of them reading: “Union? YES!”
Easy for her to say: she’s got a car! She doesn’t have to rely on buses and subways to get around. And she thinks she’s for the little people? Well, little people in big cities don’t drive. The only drivers who should have union bumper stickers are New York cab drivers–and after yesterday, they’ll get some for sure. Those guys were piling the helpless, service-dependent little Warsaw Ghetto dwellers (New Yorkers) into their cars, charging $10 a head to get them to work. One wonders if this will have any impact on the urbanites’ pro-union sympathies.

In his reporting from Iran, Sean Penn mentioned that he is half-Jewish. I’ve suspected as much since the early 80s. Now, if I may, I’d like to offer my next prediction on the matter: it’s his left half.

The New York Post reported that, “Thousands of Arabs, outraged by the Muslim-vs.-Muslim bombings in Jordan, angrily rallied against al Qaeda yesterday.”
“Now they’ve committed a sin against Islam,” Jordan’s Queen Noor said.
In Amman, a groom who lost his father and father in law said, “This is not Islam. The world has to know that this has nothing to do with Islam.”
Yeah, because Muslims are supposed to kill only non-Muslims (and women).
For its part, al Qaeda first explained the attack by implying that Jordanians weren’t Muslim enough, but after the “Burn in hell, Zarqawi” chants, al Qaeda changed its story to the hotels being where a lot of American, British and other foreign government agents hang out. In the end, they said it wasn’t al Qaeda’s intention to bomb a wedding party.
Afterwards, al Qaeda held a global member conference to figure out, “What was our message again?”
Regardless, in the wake of the Jordan attacks–if not in the wake of recent attacks in Saudi Arabia–this would probably be the part where a rational population in those countries would think to itself, “Gee, maybe Jews aren’t so bad?”
Meanwhile, if suicide bombers hit the wrong target, does that mean the 72 virgin deal is off?

Matt Drudge yesterday reported that when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer gave Don King a chance to admit less enthusiasm for George W. Bush than he might have previously had, the famous boxing promoter responded, “I want to support him more now….I think he’s a president that cares about the people he represents, but doesn’t compromise himself to the extent that he acquiesce[s] and accommodate[s]…. George Walker Bush is a tremendous advocate to America, a great president for the great American people, and he’s decisive. He’s doesn’t equivocate.”
Because as an expert on the world of fighting, King knows you don’t call a fight until it’s over. As well, he knows a winner when he sees one. King’s statements are all the more appreciated because he chose not to get in on kicking Bush when he’s down–like animals going after the wounded–the way that both Democrats and Republicans have been doing since the election.
And that makes Don–at least for this distressed damsel–King King.

Apparently, Michael Jackson has been preparing for his move to the Muslim world for several years now. In addition to sleeping with young boys, he has been saying anti-Jewish stuff, like “They start out the most popular person in the world, make a lot of money, big house, cars and everything and end up penniless. It’s a conspiracy. The Jews do it on purpose.”

Geneva Convention member states last week approved the “Red Crystal” to represent Israeli relief services, enabling Magen David Adom to join the Red Cross and Red Crescent Society, whose ambulances and relief workers are protected by international law.
This means that Christians get to have the Red Cross and Muslims get to have the Red Crescent, but Jews are only allowed in if their symbol is “free from religious, national or cultural connotations,” as an AP report termed it.
This crystal sounds very new age to me. The article describes the emblem as “a hollow red diamond on a white background.” Hollow indeed.
Now the Geneva Convention just needs to figure out how to get the Israeli relief workers to stop wearing those offensive yarmulkes…
It’s of course interesting to note that the Star of David emblem that kept Israel out of the society for all these decades is more offensive than an emblem that has caused the kind of carnage that requires emergency medical services in the first place.

So it looks like Tookie Williams has a date with California’s executioner tonight. The founder of the Crips is probably responsible for more dead cops than 9/11, but he was hoping his name was cute enough that he could avoid execution. Who does he think is governor over there–Gray Davis? Sorry, they don’t call this one The Terminator for nothing. (How ’bout a sequel: “T-Tookie”)

Iranian terrorist president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has altered his highly creative and original idea that Israel should be wiped off the map, and now thinks Israel should just move to Europe.
Uh, hello-o! That’s how this whole thing started!
But the suggestion illuminates part of the Islamic grand plan: Jews from Israel move into various European regions, so that way Muslims in those regions can accelerate their takeover of Europe by claiming that they are merely fighting Zionists.
