August 2006

I just remembered that the same Patti Lupone who commended Vanessa Redgrave’s pro-PLO politics (see three globs down) came back from a Spain vacation just a few months before the deadly attacks on Madrid, saying that it’s the Muslim influence in the south of Spain that “gives the area its allure and magic.”

And I just want to tell her, “Um actually, Patti, magic is when you can put the people back together again. That’s usually how that trick goes. Otherwise, I think it’s called terrorism.”

A few days ago, I had a post about UK police increasing their presence in Muslim areas, to deter attacks against Muslims after the latest terror arrests. I pointed out that there’s no need, since the more that Muslims kill or plot to kill, the more hate crimes there are against Jews. That’s why in Norway last month Jews were advised against speaking Hebrew loudly on Oslo streets or wearing Jewish emblems after a Jewish man wearing a yarmulke was assaulted. But notice that Muslims are never told, for their protection, to not wear those nightgowns or those shmatas on their heads. Again, proof of my thesis that the more havoc Muslims wreak, the less popular Jews become.

Meanwhile, look at this BBC photo of the little British dhimmi officers smiling affably at their masters:


I think the headline of the accompanying article (see title of this blog) has two extra words in it. It should have read “Police Fears of Muslims.”

Have you heard that Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad now has a blog? I think this could be the start of an important trend. If other dictators and terrorists and terrorist dictators were to get blogs, they’d become like other bloggers: they’d never leave the house again. They’d never get out of their pajamas to bomb anything. Especially when they see how much more fun it is to fight World War III over the Internet. (Or World War IV or V or I, depending on how you look at it.)

And the trend would finally authenticate the term “pajamahideen.”

On her website, the original Broadway Evita Patti Lupone blogs about her travels in “Ramblings from the Road,” commenting, “What a mess this world is. If we send bombs to Israel we had better be building bomb shelters for the people of Lebanon. What is going on? Everybody wants peace, I know it. And, you know, I think back to Vanessa Redgrave and her politics of the 60’s and 70’s…”

This one just “knows” that everyone wants peace — despite the evidence to the contrary thrown at us on a daily basis. But let’s go along. Let’s think like Patti. This means that:

If Lupone’s bodyguards carry guns, she’d better buy bullet-proof vests for her stalkers.

If pharmaceutical companies provide AIDS drugs, they should make the HIV virus resistant to the drugs.

And if Planned Parenthood provides abortion services, they’d better support anti-abortion legislation.

Because we really shouldn’t take sides.

In Mike Wallace’s interview with Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the senile-from-birth CBS journalist called the Hezbollah-backer “an impressive fellow,” “obviously smart as hell,” “reasonable,” and “an interesting man.” Wallace also said, “He couldn’t have been more accommodating. He had a good time doing the interview.” Furthermore, Ahmadinejad “didn’t propagandize,” made his case “fairly rationally” and was “infinitely more rational than I had expected him to be.” According to World Net Daily, “Wallace concluded that Ahmadinejad was sincere in his hope for peaceful coexistence between Iran and the West.”

It’s 1998. ABC Nightline decides to do an interview with Osama bin Laden, who has declared war on America. The assignment goes to correspondent John Miller. From Paul L. Williams’ 2005 book The Al Qaeda Connection:

Bin Laden, to the network’s astonishment, graciously consented to the interview, leading ABC executives to believe that the emir must be either a fan of Nightline or else a Muslim leader in search of publicity…

The interview between Miller and bin Laden took place in Afghanistan on May 28, 1998. Osama was all smiles as Miller obsequiously hailed him as a ‘hero to his followers’ and ‘the Middle East version of Teddy Roosevelt…

John Miller’s interview with bin Laden was aired on June 8, 1998. On August 7, 1998, the US embasies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed.

I’d say we’ve had enough examples of networks functioning as indicators of imminent attacks, based on whom they’re trying to ingratiate to us. By now, the intelligence community should be using major media interviews as red flags, and should base their timelines for anticipating attacks on media interviews with lunatics.

After the recent shooting at the Seattle Jewish center, police stepped up security around area synagogues and mosques — explaining that whenever incidents like this occur, there is always a concern for reprisal attacks against Muslims. Similarly, after a UK sky terror plot was foiled last week, British police have increased their presence in Muslim areas to deter attacks.

How many times do I have to say it? Muslims don’t get attacked when Muslims kill or plot to kill. Jews do. FBI hate crimes statistics for 2004:

Anti-Jewish Incidents: 954
Victims: 1,076

Anti-Islamic Incidents: 156
Victims: 201

There are five times more anti-Jew hate crimes than anti-Muslim. Translation: The more people Muslims kill, the less popular Jews become.

In fact, looking at the numbers, and given how things are going, it wouldn’t be outrageous to surmise that the “intolerance” and “abuse” that Arab- and Muslim-Americans complain about include cases in which a Muslim gets hurt while attacking a Jew.

But back to the point. As I observed in the blog “Preemptive Fury,” whenever Muslims attack, they (and their host cities) call for protection of Muslims. In a few short years, we may find ourselves defending Muslims even more aggressively, perhaps even taking a page from the kind of vigilance that other parts of the world display:

Jakarta (AsiaNews) – “A group composed of Islamic extremists attacked Catholics praying the rosary on 11 October and threatened to burn down the house they were gathered in. The assailants, who claimed to be part of the Islamic Defender Front…forced the marian prayer to stop immediately, threatening to burn the place down. They forced all those present…to sign a declaration that they will not hold any more rosary gatherings in houses in the area…[T]he Defense of Islam (FPI) and the Alliance Against Apostasy (AGAP) have broken into churches in the middle of services, demanded the pastor stop preaching, ordered him and the congregation out of the church, and forced him to sign a statement that the building would no longer be used for church services. Many times they…[had] letters of authorization from the mayor and chief of police in their hands, and accompanied by government officials and police, who stood by doing nothing.”

In a speech during an emergency meeting of Muslim leaders in Malaysia recently, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the destruction of Israel was the solution to the Middle East crisis: “Although the main solution is for the elimination of the Zionist regime, at this stage an immediate cease-fire must be implemented.”

In other words, he wants a final solution to the solution to the Final Solution.

By now you may have heard that several businesses in England have banned the British flag for fear of violent Muslim reactions, after an extremist group leveled warnings that the flag’s red cross reminds Muslims of the Crusades. That’s like me saying, “I can’t use the microwave; ovens remind me of the Holocaust.”

Except that would be less distant and farfetched.

So if Muslims decide tomorrow that the stars on the American flag remind them of Israel, will corporations tell employees and customers to not wave it? What Brits should do instead is say that the shmatas around Muslims’ heads remind them of bombings and so they shouldn’t be worn so defiantly. That’s much less of a stretch.

Meanwhile, the Baltimore County Muslim Council is demanding that public schools remove Jewish holidays from the school calendar unless they’re ready to give days off for Muslim holy days as well. (I was waiting for this!) As I’ve said before, soon enough, Holocaust education at schools will have to start taking into account Muslim sensitivities. After all, Hitler may seem like a villain to little Shlomo, but little Qudsia may see things differently.

There’s something most people don’t know about Hezbollah boss Hassan Nasrallah. In Russian, the word “nasrallah” means “She took a dump.” Applied to Nasrallah’s mother, that name is most appropriate. Because clearly, her son was defecated into the world.

I have cause to believe that while the press is pummeling Israel as it takes on Hezbollah and Iran, it’s also secretly cheering. Like Europeans, the media can pretend to be unhappy about Israeli actions and fulfill its job as a foot soldier to its Islamic masters so as to not summon their wrath…while quietly being relieved that Israel is cleaning up some of those masters.

Recall this New Year’s Day dispatch from Newsmax, which quotes Israeli military intelligence chief Aharon Zeevi speaking about the world’s reluctance to confront a soon-to-be-nuclear Iran:

“‘I had meetings with senior officials in Europe,’ he told Uri Dan. ‘And their position is, why should we fear Iran’s nuclear weapons? After all, we lived under the nuclear threat after World War II. And besides, either you or the Americans will solve the problem.’”
