While we rightly and justly celebrate the success of Seal Team 6 in the rescue of hostages in Somalia our jihadist friends have still been busy at home:
Item: Does this sound like the Godfather to you?
An affidavit unsealed in federal court Monday accuses Hysen Sherifi of plotting against the witnesses from his jail cell. Authorities say an FBI informant posing as a hit man met with Sherifi’s brother and a female friend and accepted $5,000 and a photo of an intended victim.
FBI agents have arrested the brother, Shkumbin Sherifi, and Nevine Aly Elshiekh, a school teacher. Now in federal custody at the New Hanover County Jail, each is charged with a felony count of use of interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire.
As Pam Geller notes the base plan was a suicide bombing vs the Marines at Quantico Bay but what struck me was the photo with the story. It seems to me you don’t get the mug shots in a lot of terror stories from the AP but this one was used. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact he could pass for a white supremacist when in fact this Muslim terrorist from Kosovo (Europe). You remember Kosovo the place where we went to war defending Muslims from the Serbs. As Pam Geller puts it:
Kosovo. The gift that keeps on giving.
Why do I suspect if the perp looked more Arabian and less European we wouldn’t see a photo with that story?
Item: I don’t know what a Scotsman has on under his kilt…
But apparently at least one little boy decided he wanted to know what was under a woman’s Abaya (Burka)
Kuwaiti police have reportedly arrested three women for not wearing any clothes underneath their abayas at a cafe in the Salmiya commercial complex, the al-Rai daily newspaper reported.
Tarek said that she questions how the boy saw any of them naked, as the abaya usually covers the entirety of the body and is difficult to see through.
“The boy was probably peeking underneath and then told his mother. It is the boy who should be in trouble, not the three women who did nothing wrong except be in public. I know a lot of women who often wear nothing underneath their abaya because it is so hot and nobody can see,” she added.
but it’s hard to laugh when you read this:
“The crime and penalty for being gay is not a nice one here and they could be facing years in prison if the accusations they had consensual sex are proven true,”
You know I keep hearing about those intolerant Christians who want to stop homosexuals from getting married but somehow stuff like this doesn’t seem to excite those worried about Catholic adoption agencies.
Item: Egypt. Even liberal mags are getting it
Apparently some in the MSM have figured out the endgame for the revolt in Egypt and it ain’t pretty:
The reality of the past twelve months, however, has undone whatever high hopes one might have held. Egypt is now headed for radical theocratic, rather than liberal democratic, rule. And a befuddled Obama administration has failed to do anything to stop the coming disaster.
But it hasn’t stopped up from sending the country soon to be in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and worse from still getting 1.3 billion a year from us in aid.
Note to State Department paying the Danegeld never works.
Item: And for those still uninformed..
Via my friend Ray lets finish with this Frontpage mag interview with Bill Warner who has spent the last decade using his Trilogy project to explain Islam to those who only see the MSM version:
Mark Tapson: Pointing out the theological motivation of Islamic fundamentalists always brings the politically correct objection that they constitute a “tiny minority of extremists” who have “hijacked” a religion of peace and interfaith tolerance. How are we to answer that objection?
Bill Warner: The use of the term “extreme” implies that something is being measured, and it is off the chart. There is one and only one measure of Islam and that is its doctrine as found in the Trilogy. For example, Mohammed preached the religion of Islam for thirteen years and made only 150 converts. But when he turned to jihad, ten years later he died, he was the ruler of Arabia and every Arab was a Muslim. Conclusion: jihad is normal, not extreme. But notice that since Islam is dualistic, Muslims can claim that it is peaceful.
Read the whole thing, you ignore it at your own risk.
Update: Weasel Zippers reports the Obama administration is speeding up funds to Egypt, makes sense, they’ve only got 10 months of good stealing left.
