Fitna Weekend Open Trackbacks

Fitna and Open Trackbacks

Geert Wilders was able to get Liveleak to release Fitna today, on a Friday. But about 12 hours after it was released, due to the British media irresponsibly publishing details about the owners of and workers at Liveleak the company was scared into taking Fitna down. The video is mild stuff, by the standards of the Jihadist snuff films that are available on Liveleak every day (that Liveleak will not take down no matter how many people complain about their hosting propaganda for murderers in a death cult). Yet let the complaints turn into death threats and Liveleak folds like a cheap suit.

The prospect of imminent death does tend to focus the mind.

This is the message of Fitna, underlined by the pre-emptive, instant rage. The movie’s message, heard directly from the mouths of Moslem imams and sheikhs, is that the idolaters of Jihad intend to murder and kill all the non-Moslems they can, then to impose humiliating taxes and oppressions on everyone left until all other religions fall away and only Islam is left. That this would reverse two thousand years of history and lead to world-wide economic collapse, increased desertification everywhere, and world-wide famine and plagues does not concern the idolaters of Jihad.

The idolaters, the Jihadists, the Assassins, the new Barbary Pirates, worship not God but the Devil. They venture out under the black pirate flag of Jihad to terrorize the world. They prove the existence of Hell, because the extent of their Evil demands eternal punishment and there must be a place they can suffer from eternal damnation.

If you haven’t been able to see the movie you haven’t missed too much. You have seen the tragic theater around it that proves its point. If you’d like to see it anyway, try Jawa, Hot Air, Pat Dollard, or Jihad Watch. Or search on Bit Torrent for “fitna”. I’m sure it will show up every once in a while, be taken down, and then pop up again.

Let’s Dance on Mughniyeh’s Grave

Remember this video from right after 9/11, when the Palestinians expressed their boundless joy that the World Trade Centers had been destroyed by Muslim terrorists? Or did you never see it because it has been suppressed by the anti-American biased world media?

I know that one dead, hell-bound cockroach named Imad Mughniyeh is only a small down-payment on all the worthless terrorist murderers who need to be killed, but it’s a step on the road. Now let’s dance on the cockroach’s grave!

Benazir Bhutto: Assassins’ Accomplices Arrested

The assassin who shot Benazir Bhutto seems to have been identified from photos. His gun has been identified as a Steyr M. Following leads, an investigative team including detectives from Scotland Yard has identified and arrested several accomplices in Swabi, a town in the North West Frontier Province bordering Afghanistan. Musharraf’s previously declared commitment to cooperating with Scotland Yard and solving the Bhutto murder appears to have been confirmed.

Earlier the Pakistani government had tied the assassination to Baitullah Mehsud’s organization, notably intercepting his congratulations on the successful jihad murder.

The Assassins Got Benazir Bhutto

The modern-day Assassins led by their vanguard in al-Qaeda managed to murder Benazir Bhutto and roughly 20 bystanders in Rawalpindi. The Canadian Press reports:

The attacker struck just minutes after Bhutto addressed thousands of supporters in the garrison city of Rawalpindi, about 18 kilometres south of Islamabad, the capital. She was shot in the neck and chest by the attacker, who then blew himself up, said Rehman Malik, Bhutto’s security adviser.

Bob Krumm states this is the biggest news story of 2007, and claims that this could be as big a deal as the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. That would imply it would start a war as big as World War I. I don’t think it will cause that big a reaction because it will not offend Muslims the same way that any offense committed by Americans would, but would put it second, after Petraeus’ success in Iraq with the surge.

From the first day she came back to Pakistan, the Jihadists were out to kill her and she seemed to be seeking martyrdom. In that first day back she held an enormous, well publicized, rally down the middle of a main road. A Jihadist carried an infant to her, wrapped in explosives, for her to kiss. But luckily for Bhutto, she had retired beneath the top of her transport and was uninjured by the explosion that killed 140 people, including the infant bomb. Yesterday the police stopped a 15-year old suicide bomber with a bomb full of nails. She has been going out into crowds too frequently. She went to Rawalpindi, where her father was hanged to death by General Zia ul Haq, who overthrew him in a military coup.

Mark Steyn writes:

Benazir Bhutto’s return to Pakistan had a mad recklessness about it which give today’s events a horrible inevitability. As I always say when I’m asked about her, she was my next-door neighbor for a while – which affects a kind of intimacy, though in fact I knew her only for sidewalk pleasantries. She was beautiful and charming and sophisticated and smart and modern, and everything we in the west would like a Muslim leader to be – though in practice, as Pakistan’s Prime Minister, she was just another grubby wardheeler from one of the world’s most corrupt political classes.Since her last spell in power, Pakistan has changed, profoundly. Its sovereignty is meaningless in increasingly significant chunks of its territory, and, within the portions Musharraf is just about holding together, to an ever more radicalized generation of young Muslim men Miss Bhutto was entirely unacceptable as the leader of their nation. […]

As I said, she was everything we in the west would like a Muslim leader to be. We should be modest enough to acknowledge when reality conflicts with our illusions. Rest in peace, Benazir.

The best thing that might come out of this martyrdom is that al-Qaeda’s allies in Pakistani military and intelligence services finally awaken to the reality that al-Qaeda and the Taliban have overstepped, that they are not allies by any stretch of the imagination, and that Pakistan finally acts decisively to destroy al-Qaeda and the Taliban branch and root.

The second best thing that might come out of it is that NATO, the UN, the EU, and the US will finally stop fooling themselves about whether the Taliban is a reliable partner in negotiations. It is not. It never will be. Hopefully, this tragedy will open some eyes.

Who has roundups? Jules Crittendon. Pajamas. Instapundit.

More on Pakistan.

JFK’s Assassination from the Texas Schoolbook Depository to the Mitrokhin Archive

Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest ranking intelligence officer ever to have defected from the Soviet bloc, states:

In the 1990s, retired KGB officer Vasily Mitrokhin, helped by the British MI6, smuggled ca 25,000 pages of highly confidential KGB documents out of Moscow. They represent a minuscule part of the KGB archive, estimated to be some 27 billion pages (the East German Stasi archive had 3 billion). Nevertheless, the FBI described the Mitrokhin Archive as “the most complete and extensive intelligence ever received from any source.” According to this archive, the first American book on the assassination, Oswald: Assassin or Fall Guy?, which blames the CIA and the FBI for the crime, was masterminded by the KGB. The book’s author, Joachim Joesten, a German-born American communist, spent five days in Dallas after the assassination, then went to Europe and disappeared from sight. A few months later Joesten’s book was published by American communist Carlo Aldo Marzani (New York), who received $80,000 from the KGB to produce pro-Soviet books, plus an annual $10,000 to advertise them aggressively. Other documents in the Mitrokhin Archive identify the first American reviewer of this book, Victor Perlo, as an undercover KGB operative.

Joesten’s book was dedicated to American Mark Lane, described in the Mitrokhin Archive as a leftist who anonymously received money from the KGB. In 1966 Lane published the bestseller Rush to Judgment, alleging that Kennedy was killed by a right-wing American group. These two books encouraged people with any remotely related background expertise to join the fray. Each viewed events from his own perspective, but all accused elements in the U.S. of that crime. New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison looked around his home district and in 1967 arrested a local man, whom he accused of conspiring with elements of U.S. intelligence to murder Kennedy in order to stop the latter’s efforts to end the Cold War. The accused was acquitted in 1969, but Garrison clung to his story, first writing A Heritage of Stone (Putnam, 1970) and eventually publishing On the Trail of the Assassins (Sheriden Square, 1988), one of the books that inspired Oliver Stone’s movie JFK.

The Kennedy assassination conspiracy was born—and it never died. According to another document, in April 1977 KGB chairman Yury Andropov informed the Politburo that the KGB was launching a new desinformatsiya campaign to further implicate “American special services” in the Kennedy assassination. Unfortunately, the Mitrokhin Archive is silent on the subject after that.

As I said a few months ago, “the answer that resulted from the process of investigation and trial was correct, but not politically correct according to the Marxist paradigm of the hippie left.” Now we have an ex-Soviet intelligence officer who states that the reason for the conspiracy theorizing is a Soviet disinformation operation.

Text of Bin Laden Speech

I just finished typing it in.

I’ve seen an image of the text in some places, and partial transcripts in others, but the image is hard to quote or to fisk. This speech begs for fisking, close analysis and fact correction, and for comparing different passages to the statements of different anti-war figures like Noam “Terrorist Buddy” Chomsky, Cindy “Smoothie Diet” Sheehan, “Dingy” Harry Reid, Michael “Sicko” Moore, Nancy “Blinky” Pelosi, John “Lurch” Kerry, and the sonorous retard himself, Keith “4th place in his timeslot” Olbermaniac.

The text seems as if it was written in English and translated to Arabic. It would be useful to find out where Bin Laden and Jewish convert Adam Gadahn got the language for this speech, which hits every single leftist and socialist argument (except Abu Ghraib and Gitmo, which have already been used several times) against the Global Counterjihad, and also appeals to Republicans by promising tax cuts under Islamic governance. The scattershot style actually sounds desperate, as if he would say anything to get the US to stop fighting and leave him alone. I think he realizes that Al Qaeda is beaten in Afghanistan and Iraq, and this is a last ditch effort to stop the systematic dismantling of Al Qaeda in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan. And there is one other thing that reinforces this analysis, this feeling, that I get from the words. Look at the pictures of Bin Laden in 2004 and 2007. As Robert Spencer notes, if Osama Bin Laden has dyed his hair and beard black, it means he is preparing to fight and kill or be killed in Jihad for the sake of Allah. He is preparing to physically fight, which he has not yet done in Al Qaeda’s Global Jihad, preferring to direct his doomed minions from a safe area in the rear. He has taken the coward’s path until now. But for this video he has dyed his hair and beard black as Blackbeard the Pirate. It would seem that he is preparing some last ditch spectacular attack, with the hope being that it will change the momentum of the battles in Iraq or Afghanistan and give his Jihadist followers and allies breathing room. He might even have some kind of spectacular suicide attack using WMDs in mind, and might even sacrifice his own life for the cause.

This is if Bin Laden is alive. It is very possible that he is dead and his spectre is being used to distract attention away from living Jihadists. Omar al Baghdadi, the ostensible Iraqi head of Al Qaeda in Iraq, is a fictional character. If Al Qaeda uses a fictional character as a figurehead for one of their organizations it is no great leap to think they might use a dead man as a figurehead for another one. It is as if NATO claimed that Ronald Reagan, Winston Churchill, and Napoleon were secretly directing global Counterjihad plans.

Have at it. All I ask is that you link back to where you got it.

Talibanistan devouring Pakistan: Afghanistan next

The surrender of the Waziristans to the Assassins of the Taliban and Al Qaeda was only the beginning. Now nuclear power Pakistan’s deterioration accelerates, bringing ever closer the spectre of a nuclear Jihadist state.

Only a few days ago, there was shock, widely expressed, at a video circulating in Pakistan that showed a 12 year old boy beheading a Pakistani militant accused of being a U.S. spy.

Jihadist media sources in Pakistan are prospering, and widely disseminate this sort of material. Osama bin Laden’s newspaper in Pakistan is known as the Ummat.

In related news, the uprising at Lal Masjid (aka the Red Mosque) in Islamabad has been continuing for several months now. The staff-wielding, niqaab wearing militant women in Black of the Red Mosque have been demanding the replacement of Pakistani civil law with sharia for a while. The Red Mosque has set up a sharia court on its territory. The Red Mosque’s chief cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz recently declared war on Pakistan. Specifically he stated that Musharraf’s government is un-Islamic and that every Moslem should wage jihad against it. “Banned” terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed has declared it will fight the government on behalf of the Red Mosque, claiming that police officers have raped their “sisters.” The government is trying to put lipstick on a pig by claiming the standoff has been resolved amiably, but the Red Mosque leadership disputes the government’s claims.

The Red Mosque isn’t the only source of Assassin agitation in Pakistan. The Darul Uloom Haqqania in the North-West Frontier Province is one of Pakistan’s largest madrassas, and was the main training madrassa for the original Taliban. Roughly 3,000 jihadists graduate from it every year. It is one center of gravity for the new, Pakistani Taliban that now controls the Waziristans, the North-West Frontier Province, and adjoining terrortories including Tank, Dera Ismail Khan, Bajaur, Bannu and Lakki Marwat. As the Jamestown Foundation’s Terrorism Monitor notes:

A more startling view by another Pakistani observer notes that the male custodians of Lal Masjid and Jamia Hafsa seminaries confirm that “Pakistan’s mosques and seminaries raise terrorists and not scholars” (Dawn, April 15).

Lal and Haqqania have plenty of company in the Assassin indoctrination biz.

As Mullah Dadullah, a hardened Taliban assassin, told Al Jazeera, Osama Bin Laden is alive in Pakistan. Bin Laden is monitoring and supervising Al Qaeda operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Bin Laden personally ordered the attack on U.S. Vice President Cheney in Bagram base in Afghanistan. And the U.S. has no authority to strike Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan, even if he were identified down to the square meter.

Pakistan does the absolute minimum to discourage Jihadist Assassins from crossing the border into Afghanistan to wreak havoc against Afghan and NATO military and civilians. Pakistan’s foreign policy is based on the reckoning that NATO and the U.S. are weak and will soon abandon Afghanistan, leaving the Karzai government susceptible to a Pashtun revolt led by a vanguard of Taliban and Al Qaeda that would restore a jihadist government friendly to Pakistan in Afghanistan.

The government of Pakistan continues to crumble on other fronts. The government is promising to reconstruct illegally built madrassas, the demolition of which sparked the rebellion of the Lal Masjid. Now the Taliban in Bajaur is distributing pamphlets calling for the release of all Jihadists imprisoned by the Pakistani government… or else. The Pakistani government’s affinity for giving in to Jihadist threats does not fill one with confidence.

One area where Pakistan is cracking down on border-crossing Jihadists is in Baluchistan. Of course, these Jihadists are attacking targets in Iran, not Afghanistan. Worse yet in Pakistan’s eyes, these Baluchi Jihadists threaten Pakistan’s agreement with China to build a massive deepwater port in Gwadar.

What does all this mean?

In my estimation, we are coming ever closer to nuclear war. Pakistan is a nuclear power that is becoming increasingly dominated by Jihadist Assassins including Osama Bin Laden, the New Old Man of the Mountain.

Renaming the (Global) War on Terror

From the Military Times:

The House Armed Services Committee is banishing the global war on terror from the 2008 defense budget. […]

The “global war on terror,” a phrase first used by President Bush shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S., should not be used, according to the memo. Also banned is the phrase the “long war,” which military officials began using last year as a way of acknowledging that military operations against terrorist states and organizations would not be wrapped up in a few years.

Committee staff members are told in the memo to use specific references to specific operations instead of the Bush administration’s catch phrases. The memo […] provides examples of acceptable phrases, such as “the war in Iraq,” the “war in Afghanistan, “operations in the Horn of Africa” or “ongoing military operations throughout the world.”

This could have three effects.

  1. On one hand, as the Wall Street Journal’s editorial staff notes, this helps those democrats who want to divide the battles of the war into small, discrete, less important pieces so they can subject the overall effort to a death of a thousand cuts.

    What the Democrats object to, however, is the idea that it is a “global war.” In particular, they are trying to sell the fantasy that Iraq is a discrete problem with no relation to any broader conflict–so that surrendering in Iraq would have no deleterious consequences for U.S. national security.

    It would be nice for Americans (albeit brutal for Iraqis) if the U.S. could simply cut its losses and abandon Iraq. But it seems to us there is far more wisdom in the holistic approach of the “global war.” America has failed to engage its enemies, or tactically retreated when the going got tough, repeatedly since Vietnam: Iran in 1979, Lebanon in 1983, Iraq in 1991, Somalia in 1993.

    There is ample reason to think that these shows of weakness–or, more precisely, of irresoluteness–emboldened America’s enemies. The attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, provided strong–at the time, seemingly irrefutable–evidence that taking the easy way out did not enhance American national security.

  2. On the other hand, the phrase Global War on Terror is suboptimal. It is demonstrably false or meaningless. Terror is a tactic, not an enemy. It is an abstract noun, just like Crime or Drugs or Childhood Obesity. Wars against these abstract nouns appear to be un-serious because of the term used, however serious the goal might be. In my experience this is the first objection most leftists have to the War on Terror. This is a war on a tactic. There is not even an enemy. They are right. Is there a better name that names a concrete enemy that can be named, defined, and opposed?
  3. I’m out of hands, but the third effect of changing the name is confusion. Changing the term in mid-stream will confuse people. Is the war on terror the same as the global war on terror? We’ve already suffered from this renaming confusion with the War in Iraq. Why would the U.S. stop chasing after Bin Laden and the Taliban before the enemy was crushed? And why would they take on a different enemy instead, especially one that had a personal beef against the father of the U.S. president? Without a brand that encompassed the entire range of action it could be named by peacemongers, jihadist facilitators, and communist agitators. They called it a war for oil, a grudge match, a Halliburton plot, a rejection of the Powell doctrine, and a war against Islam.

From “We are all Armenians” to Posing for Souvenir Photos with the Killer

The Turkish security forces face fresh embarrassment after it emerged that some of its members had posed for “souvenir pictures” with the alleged murderer of Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink.Film footage and photos leaked to the media showed 17-year-old Ogun Samast, who has confessed to the murder, displaying a Turkish flag, flanked by members of the security forces, some of them in uniform.Behind them is a calendar featuring another Turkish flag and the words of the country’s founder, Ataturk: “The motherland’s soil is sacred. It cannot be left to its destiny.” (source)

The problem of toxic Turkish nationalism is a serious one for Turkey. A Fascist Nationalism is the force that protects and militates against Islamism and Jihadism in Turkey, yet it is informed by those strains that also seek after authoritarianism. The Young Turks who propagated the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire were the predecessors of the the Moslem Brotherhood, which in turn gave birth to Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Al Qaeda. After the Ottoman Empire was broken up and Attaturk dissolved the Caliphate, Attaturk encouraged Nationalist feelings in order to guard against further Islamist excesses.

The relationship between this hysterical type of Turkish nationalism–or, to use a more appropriate term, Turkish fascism–and Islam is worth clarifying. There are of course many militant Islamists in the world today, but Turkish fascists are not among them. In fact, they are clearly distinguished from and often at odds with Turkey’s Islamic circles, some of which are strong proponents of democratization and the EU bid. The fascists defend Islam and use it in some of their slogans, to be sure, but this is because they see religion as an important component of the Turkish identity. They hate the “infidel” Jews, Armenians, or Americans, but they detest Muslim Kurds and Arabs, too. Indeed, some of their most extreme factions don’t like Islam because of its trans-nationalism; instead they yearn for the pagan faiths of the pre-Islamic Turks.

Threats and violence have been the traditional tools these fascist cadres use to silence the intellectuals they hate–including liberal novelists such as the recent Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk, and the Sufi-inspired Elif Safak. With the murder of Hrant Dink, they probably wanted to give a warning to them all. But the reaction of Turkish society to this political assassination suggests that their plan has backfired. Right after Dink’s murder, thousands of people gathered in front of his office to protest the crime. Their maxim was dramatic: “We are all Hrant Dink.” And the Turkish media, save for a few extremist dailies that support the fascist line, published heartfelt praise for Dink and grave condemnation of his murder.

Moreover, Hrant Dink’s funeral turned into an unprecedented rally against fascism in Turkish society. About one hundred thousand people from all walks of life and faiths marched in the wide avenues of Istanbul, creating a scenic river of bodies. The motto of the day was “We are all Armenians.”(source)

From “We are all Armenians” to posing for souvenir photos with the killer, the contrast couldn’t be more vivid.
