Iran Blames US for Creating ISIS

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Iran’s Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei accused the United States and Britain having given birth to ISIS and Al Qaeda/ in order to confront Iran

“Efforts by the US and its allies against the ISIL Takfiri terrorists are not genuine., he said, according to Irfan’s regime-controlled Press TV.

“If anyone fuels the fire in this regard, he or she will definitely be helping sinister America and Britain which are the creators of the ISIL and al-Qaeda,” Khamenei added.

Press TV reported that he declared that all enemy efforts, including their divisive plots, against Iran over the past thirty-five years have failed.

He claimed that ISIL and al-Qaeda were “ created to confront Iran and the wave of Islamic awakening in the Middle East and Africa, adding the militant groups have now turned against their creator,” according to the news agency.

So much for President Barack and British Prime Minister David Cameron’s new trusted friend.

“America, Zionism, and especially the veteran expert of spreading divisions – the wicked government of Britain – have sharply increased their efforts of creating divisions between the Sunnis and Shi’ites,” the Supreme Leader stated.

ISIS Beheading of British Citizen Wakes Up Cameron

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

The British government finally woke up and vowed to destroy ISIS after the radical Islamic group posted on Friday a video that purported to show the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning Friday.

It was the fourth time ISIS, AKA Islamic State and lately IS, has posted a video of beheadings, the first ones being American journalists James Foley and afterwards a Jew, Steven Sotloff.

Britain, like all European countries, is being overwhelmed with a burgeoning Muslim population, and the fundamentalists, whether a majority or a minority, have hijacked the new demographics and already has established Sharia law as the supreme law in some communities.

The more the Muslim demographic revolution overruns countries such as Belgium and France, the more the governments are afraid to do anything that might upset them and cause violence. The more they refrain, the more the radicals show their presence through fear.

Fear is the biggest weapon of radical Islamists, and ISIS has mastered the strategy through beheadings. It is more brutal than simply hanging or shooting someone in the back of the head, but the end result is the same. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu tries and tries, so far unsuccessfully, to convince the world that ISIS and Hamas are one and the same. The West doesn’t buy it because doing so would ruin the peace process sham.

Everyone denies reality until it happens to close to home.

ISIS gave advance notice to Britain that British aid worker Henning was next in line, and the British Parliament last promptly voted to join the American-led coalition to strike ISI in Iraq, which the Royal Air Force bombed on Saturday.

Friday’s video sows the ISIS executioner, apparently the same British-accented so-called human being who decapitated three previous victims. It also shows Henning, with his tied behind his back.

“Because of our parliament’s decision to attack the Islamic state, I, as a member of the British public, will now pay the price,” Henning said in the video.

Cameron now is boiling.

“It is senseless. It is completly unforgivable. Anyone in any doubt about this organization can now see how truly repulsive it is and barbaric it is,” he said Saturday.

Good morning, Mr. Cameron.

Five Anti-Zionist Doctors ‘Hijack’ Medical Journal to Dump on Israel

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Two of five doctors who hijacked a highly respected British medical journal in August to publish a venomous anti-Israel article also used their email to endorse a video by white supremacist and former KKK Grand Wizard and a  David Duke.

The Lancet, described by the London Telegraph as ”a venerable and well-respected British medical journal, published an “open letter for the people of Gaza ”that condemned Israel’s counter-terror campaign. The “letter” actually was an article.

Other medical publications, most notably the British Medical Journal, routinely allow their authors to exploit their positions to dump on Israel, but the endorsement of David Duke’s video crossed all red lines – except Lancet’s.

The journal’s editor, Dr. Richard Horton refused to apologize for publishing the article co-authored by a KKK enthusiast and told the Telegraph, “I don’t honestly see what all this has to do with the Gaza letter. I have no plans to retract the letter, and I would not retract the letter even if it was found to be substantiated.”

The dwindling anti-Israel crowd, whose soap box get smaller and smaller and smaller as Hamas war crimes become larger and larger, is so intellectually bankrupt that Dr. Horton had to resort to total illogic to back himself. “How can you separate politics and health? The two go hand-in-hand,” he said.

And this man calls himself a doctor?

The David Duke video in question is called “CNN, Goldman Sachs & the Zio Matri, in which Duke claims that “the Zionist Matrix of Power controls Media, Politics and Banking” and that “some of the Jewish elite practices racism and tribalism to advance their supremacist agenda.”

The two doctors-for-Duke are Swee Ang, an orthopedic surgeon, and Paola Manduca, a professor of genetics at the University of Genoa in Italy.

They not only are not embarrassed over their open anti-Semitic statements but actually defend them.

“This is a shocking video please watch. This is not about Palestine – it is about all of us!” wrote Dr. Ang after watching the Duke video.

Dr. Manduca, besides endorsing the video, “forwarded a message alleging that the Boston marathon bombings were in fact carried out by Jews,” according to the Telegraph. In one e-mail, she wrote, “Let us hope that someone in the FBI is smart enough to look more carefully at the clues in Boston and find the real culprits behind these bombings instead of buying the Zionist spin.”

Dr. Ang explained to the newspaper, “I didn’t know who David Duke was, or that he was connected to the Ku Klux Klan. I am concerned that if there is any truth in the video, that Jews control the media, politics and banking, what on earth is going on? I was worried.”

Here is a woman, a doctor, who saw something on the Internet and was worried that “if” there was any truth to it, he was worried.

And this woman calls herself a doctor?

If she was worried about truth in what he reads, she should start with the Koran.

As for Dr. Manduca, she said that she is not anti-Semitic, God forbid, and that her “right of freedom of opinion” justifies her statements.

No, she is not anti-Semitic but in the same breath told the Telegraph, she “does not agree or value the politics of the government of Israel, nor of many others, including Jews in and out of Israel.”

Another author of the article in Lancet is Dr. Mads Gilbert, who told the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet in 2001 that he supported terrorist attacks in the “connect” that 9/11 atrocities was a result of Western foreign policy.

British Store Guard Tells Children ‘No Jews Allowed’

Monday, September 15th, 2014

A British sporting goods chain has apologized for a security guard preventing identifiable Jewish preteens from entering one of its stores.

The seventh-graders were wearing the uniforms of the Yavneh Academy, a Jewish secondary school, when they attempted to enter the Sports Direct store in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, on Friday, the Jewish Chronicle reported. The guard stopped them at the door and said “no Jews, no Jews.”

Other Yavneh students who wore coats over their uniforms were permitted to enter.

The company apologized and removed the guard, who was fired from the security company for which he worked.

Unlike in Turkey, at least the Jews still were considered human beings.

The Jewish newspaper Salom reported that a mobile phone accessories store in Istanbul posted a sign in the window stating,

“The Jew dogs cannot come in here.”

Scottish Woman Heads ISIS ‘Sisterhood for Martyrdom’

Monday, September 8th, 2014

A 20-year-old Muslim woman from Glasgow, Scotland left her parents weeping after she called from the Turkish-Syria border to tell them she is serving the ISIS machine of evil and “wants to become a martyr.”

Aqsa Mahmood, a radiography student, left home in November and has posted messages on Twitter urging western women to carry out terrorist attacks and “follow the examples of your brothers from Woolwich, Texas and Boston.”

At least 20 British women have joined ISIS thanks to social media, Melanie Smith, of King’s College International Center for the Study of Radicalization told the Guardian. Other reports put the number of British women in the ISIS at 60.

She estimates that approximately 200 western women have joined ISIS, which has popularized beheading and has taken brutal gang rapes to a new extreme.

The 20-year-old Mahmood presumably is not in charge of lining up rape victims for ISIS murderers, who do very well by themselves.

Her job as president of the jihadist version of the Sisterhood is to supervise the women’s police force in Rakka, where a British-accented ISIS killer beheaded journalists James Foley and Steve Sotloff. The force of approximately 20 women keep a watch and punish women if they do not behave as good Muslims, fully covered and accompanied by a man when in public lest they fall into the clutches of an intelligent human being.

As for the “Brotherhood” side of the ISIS, their code of good behavior is a bit different. One woman captive of ISIS told an Italian reporter of brutal sexual harassment. She said a 17-year-old was one of 40 women, some of them still in captivity and as young as 13, who were sex slaves for the ISIS.

One of the most important functions of the women is to bear as many children as possible to ensure the growth of the ISIS and help it fulfill its devotion to Allah and destroy Western civilization.

Asqa Mahmood’s parents told CNN they pleaded with her daughter to come home “in the name of Allah.” Of course, she has decided that she is acting in the name of Allah and has married one of the ISIS terrorists, so there really is not much to talk about. They said that their daughter was “brainwashed.”

Two of the British girls have been identified as 16-year-old twin sisters, Zahra and Salma Halane, who followed their brother’s move to Syria, left their Manchester home in June and are believed to have married ISIS members.

Not all of the British women are Muslims from birth. The London Independent identified one of them as Sally Jones, a convert from Kent, who apparently turned her life around after meeting on social media a computer hacker who was attracted to jihad.

Another woman tweeted, “I wna b da 1st UK woman 2 kill a UK or US terorrist!”

The Ties that Bind (and Those Unmentioned)

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

The case of the 1400 girls that were beaten and raped over a period of 13 years in England horrified the civilized world. That such an event could go on at all, and then further, left unchecked by police has rightfully enraged the citizens of England and abroad.

Presumably, actions will being taken to right the wrong that was done to the girls and to prosecute those responsible. As part of the process, people are analyzing what could make people commit such atrocities on young children, and how could the police avoid taking action for so long.

Any decent analysis will examine the history of the cases and look for trends: time; place; individual; community; backgrounds; people and friends involved; etc. Common themes will certainly emerge. Some will be important and others less so.

At this point, reporting from some media outlets consider certain characteristics of the assailants important while others avoid them. Consider:

  • The Telegraph. Initial articles mentioned that the men were from “Asian gangs”. Later editorial-news clearly stated that “All but one of the perpetrators were Muslims of Pakistani heritage”.
  • The Wall Street Journal. The initial two stories mentioned the “Pakistani origin” of the attackers, but did not mention their religion. The third article did not specifically say that they were Muslim, but said that the Muslim community condemned the crimes, adding a quote from a member of the Muslim community that the attackers “are not Muslims.” In the fourth article, it declared that “the abusers were of Pakistani and Muslim origin”.
  • The Guardian. First described the attackers as “Asian”. Later articles mentioned the “perpetrators in the town mostly being Pakistani taxi drivers.”  Editorials in September reverted back to saying the rapists were “Asian”.
  • The New York Times. Has referred to the perpetrators as “men of Pakistani heritage”. To this day, none of their news accounts mention that the attackers were Muslim.

 

There was an evolution of the news flow in the more conservative papers: first the men are described as “Asian”, then “Pakistani” and finally “Muslim”. There are several reasons why this evolution may have occurred: more information about the perpetrators gradually became known, or the relevance of the additional information was viewed as more important as time went on.

The Telegraph and the Wall Street Journal added information that the attackers were Muslim. The Guardian held off, and only obtusely referred to their Islamic faith in an article on September 2nd where it reverted back to describing the attackers as “Asian” but the “growing influx of the far right” had expressed its anger at the “Muslim community”.  The New York Times has avoided mentioning the religion of the rapist in any manner.

By the beginning of September, the common religious background of the attackers was well reported. One must therefore conclude that the New York Times deliberately decided to not point out the attackers religious background because they felt it was not relevant to the story (but somehow their Pakistani heritage was).

Was the fact that the men were Muslim relevant to their actions? Was the fact that they were Muslim relevant to their community’s failure of reporting their actions? Was their religion a factor in the police not investigating the many reported cases? Was there an important distinction between being Pakistani and Muslim? Was this simply a gang that happened to be both Pakistani and Muslim and the religion and heritage of the people had only to do with their kinship and nothing to do with the attacks or cover-up?

Perhaps the investigations will resolve the questions. It will be interesting to see if a divide between conservative and liberal papers shields the perpetrators faith (but not heritage) at that time.
