There were two trials recently for two men who were each accused of genocidal war crimes. The men were on opposite sides of a conflict. One man was sentenced to life in prison, one man will serve no time at all and is free to live his life however he pleases. One man massacred thousands of men, women and children in the most painful and horrible ways imaginable, the other man killed a bunch of the killers who had killed the aforementioned people, and he did so after having evacuated the women, children, and elderly from the area first. One man enjoyed the backing of the United States and western media, the other man has been labelled “The Butcher”.  Let’s have a closer look at both men and their deeds.

Ratko Mladic was sentenced to life in prison by a U.N. Yugoslav War Tribunal this week for actions he was held responsible for that took place in Sarajevo and Srebrenica.

Naser Oric was cleared of all charges for his war crimes last month, by a Bosnian court (that would be a court belonging to the same side as himself in the conflict). Via The Geller Report:

For years, I warned of the catastrophic consequences of President Bill Clinton’s regional Islamic nation-building, aiding and abetting the Bosnian Muslims against the Christian Serbs. Like President Carter backing the Ayatollah Khomeini against the pro-American Shah, the consequences of aiding and abetting Islamic movements are catastrophic. And here is more: on Monday, the Bosnian Muslim war criminal Naser Oric was acquitted of all charges of war crimes — by a Bosnian court.

This is an outrageous miscarriage of justice. There is no doubt whatsoever that Oric led a number of massacres of Serbian civilians in the villages around Srebrenica over several years, killing more than 3,000 people. Some were crucified on trees, burned alive, tortured horribly. He even committed crimes against the Muslims in Srebrenica when he and his cronies controlled the town, but all is forgiven now: if you kill Serbian civilians, the international community doesn’t see it as a crime.   MORE

A 2008 photo essay by Peter North revealed a lot about the conflict in the former Yugoslavia that will never be covered by the mainstream media (there are VERY GRAPHIC images at the link):

The Real Srebrenica Genocide: The mass murder of Serbs in Srebrenica and Gorazde from 1992 to 1995 by Alija Izetbegovic’s Islamofascist terrorists

The real Srebrenica Genocide not reported by the corrupt, racist pro-Islamist-Nazi Western corporate-controlled media, was the brutal mass murder – using axes, knives, daggers, sledgehammers, iron bars, flamethrowers and explosives – of 3,870 Serbian elderly men, women and young children in and around the town of Srebrenica and its adjoining towns and villages(Bratunac,Skelani,Milici, et al) as well as the town of Gorazde. MUCH MORE HERE

A 2015 post from Pamela Geller shares an article from investigative reporter and historian Christopher J. Green which tells us more about what Ratko Mladec and Naser Oric are known to have done:

Muslim troops raped, disembowelled, beheaded and roasted alive their victims. Curiously, all of these atrocities were ignored by the Western media who had singled out the Serbs as being the aggressors from the very start of the war.

Proof of the diabolical crimes committed by Bosnian Muslims came from the commander of the UN peace keeping force General Philippe Morillon. He had personally seen the mutilated bodies of Serb civilians and in his testimony to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, he stated Oric’s jihadists had carried out:

attacks during Orthodox holidays including Christmas Eve and destroyed villages, massacring all the inhabitants. This created a degree of hatred that was quite extraordinary in the region.

20 Years On – The Deception of Srebrenica Is Still Advancing Islamic Jihad

By Christopher J. Green – 07/16/2015

Saturday July 11th 2015 marked the twentieth anniversary of the massacre of Bosnian Muslims by Bosnian Serbs in the town of Srebrenica. The opportunity to indulge in an orgy of Serb-bashing by opportunist, self-serving politicians and the duplicitous media was simply too good to miss. They were all-too-keen to continue propagating one of the biggest deceptions ever perpetrated on the West, a deception that did so much to advance Islamic jihad. For Islam, Srebrenica is the gift that keeps on giving as you’ll now see.

Let’s start with the then President of the United States, the Democrat Bill Clinton. Speaking at a ceremony at Srebrenica to mark the anniversary, a sombre Mr. Clinton apologized for the amount of time it took for the necessary force to be brought against the Serbs.

The former President neglected to mention the two peace deals scuppered by the United States which would’ve prevented so much bloodshed, including the massacre at Srebrenica. In 1992, the peace deal brokered by Portuguese diplomat José Cutileiro known as “The Lisbon Agreement,” had been signed by all three warring factions in Bosnia: The Croats, Serbs and Bosnian Muslims.

However, after meeting with US Ambassador Warren Zimmerman, the leader of the Bosnian Muslims Alija Izetbegovic disavowed his signature and made an avoidable war almost certain.

Mr. Clinton didn’t mention the scuppering of the Vance-Owen plan in January 1993 which occurred under his Presidency. Once again, all sides had agreed to the deal which divided territory on ethnic lines. US ambassador Warren Christopher encouraged the Bosnian Muslims to hold out for an additional four percent of territory. Due to his advice, the deal collapsed

Across the pond, British politician Sir Eric Pickles tweeted his sympathy for the victims of Srebrenica, foolishly comparing the “genocide” to the holocaust. He seems to forget Jews were not committing atrocities against Germans, unlike Muslims in Bosnia against the Serbs. But the accusation of genocide is also incorrect because the Serbs had evacuated women and the elderly from Srebrenica. This proves it was a massacre and not genocide yet facts like this are conveniently ignored by both politicians and the media.

Predictably, the mainstream media all regurgitated the tried-and-tested “Serbs were guilty of committing genocide against Muslims” false narrative just as they had done twenty years previously. When you read the reports, all of them focus on what happened in July 1995. They accuse the Serbs of besieging the town, kidnapping UN peace-keepers and forcing women and children to flee. The aim is still to portray the Muslims as the innocent victims of Serb hatred and brutality.

It’s true the Bosnian Serb army did besiege the town and yes, they did indeed hold UN peace-keepers hostage to prevent NATO from carrying out air strikes on Serb positions. But it was Bosnian Serb commander Colonel-General Ratko Mladic who gave the order to evacuate the women and the elderly from Srebrenica.

So, there was a massacre at Srebrenica in July 1995. The question begging to be asked is: What happened beforethe massacre occurred?

Srebrenica, a predominantly Muslim town, was designated as a “UN Safe Zone” defended by around 600 Dutch UN peacekeepers. Between 1992 and 1995, Bosnian Muslim forces were smuggling weapons into the protectorate, attacking Serb positions as well as using it as a base to launch attacks on surrounding Serb villages. During that time, Bosnian Muslim forces under the command of Naser Oric massacred an estimated two-thousand Serbs including women and children.

Oric’s Bosniak Muslim troops raped, disembowelled, beheaded and roasted alive their victims. Curiously, all of these atrocities were ignored by the Western media who had singled out the Serbs as being the aggressors from the very start of the war.

Proof of the diabolical crimes committed by Bosnian Muslims came from the commander of the UN peace keeping force General Philippe Morillon. He had personally seen the mutilated bodies of Serb civilians and in his testimony to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, he stated Oric’s jihadists had carried out:

attacks during Orthodox holidays including Christmas Eve and destroyed villages, massacring all the inhabitants. This created a degree of hatred that was quite extraordinary in the region.

So much for Srebrenica being a “safe zone.” Clearly the UN peacekeepers were failing in their duty and were complicit in these massacres. It’s also curious that the media neither at the time of the massacres or on the anniversary twenty years later make any mention of what happened in the lead up to the massacre at Srebrenica.

Are the Serbs innocent? Of course not and their massacre of Bosnian Muslims committed out of revenge is equally as deplorable as the massacres committed by Oric’s jihadists. But war is a very dirty business. In a war where all sides – Serbs, Croats and Muslims – committed atrocities, apportioning all the blame on one side is part of the crime. It must be said, the failure of the UN to stop a “safe zone” becoming a base for Muslim terrorists means they must shoulder a share of the blame for the massacres too.

Serbian lust for revenge wasn’t the only motive at work here. The Bosnian Muslims were desperate to get the United States on their side because they knew the US could urge NATO to intervene in what was a civil war. President Clinton was looking for an excuse to justify military intervention. Oric and his commanders knew when the Serbs took Srebrenica there would be reprisals for what he and his vicious band of jihadists had done. They also knew this would give the President his perfect reason to justify military intervention against the Serbs. Just before Srebrenica fell into Serb hands, Oric and his men left the town and abandoned the remaining Muslims to their terrible fate.

So far from being genocide, Srebrenica was a betrayal of Muslims by Muslims to bring NATO into the civil war. Muslims were sacrificed by their own people for this cause. It was a set-up and it worked even better than Oric imagined, fooling Western politicians like Bill Clinton and of course, the mass media who seized the opportunity to demonize the Serbs who were wrongly accused of committing genocide. A crime they are still being accused of to this day.

The deception led to NATO jets bombing Serb forces at Srebrenica, thus becoming the air force for Islamic jihad. Although the war in Bosnia is commonly believed to be a civil war, it wasn’t really. It was and still is part of the global Islamic jihad and it did so much to help Islam establish a foothold in central Europe. And the West aided and abetted it.

Maybe it also set the tone for the denial of the reality of Islam and jihad. Twenty years on from the deception of Srebrenica, it simply does not occur to most people in the West that the atrocities carried out by Muslim forces during the war in Bosnia are exactly the same atrocities Islamic State is carrying out against Christians in Iraq and Syria today. And if anyone dared suggest it, no doubt they’d be told “it’s nothing to do with Islam.”  MORE

Bare Naked Islam has more information about the demonization of the Serbs, the long and largely untold history of ethnic cleansing in The Balkans, and how Bill Clinton helped set the stage for ISIS in that region:

Fortunately, many western citizens no longer take Western mainstream media propaganda for granted as they did in 90’s and they are new alternative media which are breaking the monopoly of the western mainstream media.

Former chief NSA analyst: “Most of the Muslims killed in Srebrenica were soldiers who refused to surrender.”

 Unlike the Bosnian Muslim forces, the Bosnian Serb forces didn’t kill any of Srebrenica women, children and older people but instead bused them out to the main territory controlled by the Bosnian Muslim forces. During the debate in the UN Security council neo-con and US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power whined: ‘What’s next? Holocaust denial?’ In this way, Mrs. Power insulted the victims of Holocaust comparing a hoax civilian massacre in Srebrenica with the Nazi genocide against Jews and Slavs in WW2.The crimes committed by Bosnian Muslim forces were “extraordinary” and made the Serbs’ desire for revenge to be“inevitable.”

The media neglect of the massacres against Orthodox Christians in and around Srebrenica – and such leniency taken against Bosnian Muslim individuals who committed such crimes – not only leaves a sour taste – it is a falsification of history and covers up many untold stories which helps to dehumanize the Serbians. It also negates to share responsibility where it belongs – this applies to all parties who committed massacres. This also includes the United States and CIA which conveniently “overlooked” 8,000 of the most brutal and fanatical Islamists to enter Bosnia on false passports in order to slit the throats of Orthodox Christians.

The Bosnian Serbs might have had the heaviest weapons, but the Bosnian Muslims matched them in infantry skills that were much in demand in the rugged terrain around Srebrenica. As the snow cleared in the spring of 1995, it became obvious to Nasar Oric, the man who led the Bosnian Muslim fighters that the Bosnian Serb army was going to attack Srebrenica to stop him from attacking Serb villages. So he and a large number of his fighters slipped out of town. Srebrenica was left undefended with the strategic thought that, if the Serbs attacked an undefended town, surely that would cause NATO and the UN to agree that NATO air strikes against the Serbs were justified. And so the Bosnian Serb army strolled into Srebrenica without opposition.”

The brutal civil wars throughout the former Yugoslavia led to the ethnic cleansing of Serbians in Krajina. However, not only was nothing done about this, the Croatian forces who did this had been backed by America and other nations during the conflict.

Also, the ghosts of past Muslim SS Units who supported Nazi Germany alongside Croatian fascists, was still etched into the memory because the events of World War Two were never reconciled under communist rule after the war. Therefore, with this, and the Ottoman Muslim past of enslaving young Orthodox Christian boys and then converting them to Islam – then the fear was not based on myths or on distant memories.

By glossing over the massacres of 3,500 Orthodox Christians in and around Srebrenica; the role of the United States in turning a blind eye to 8,000 international Islamists (some members who did September 11 had learnt much in Bosnia); the actions of the Bosnian Muslim leader, Alija Izetbegovic, in abandoning the Muslim enclave; and other important factors. It entails that Srebrenica is being manipulated for all the wrong reasons and that the dehumanization of the Serbians is a convenient way for Western powers to gloss over the reality on the ground. It also suits the Bosnian Muslim leadership which abandoned the enclave despite fighting against fellow Muslims in the west.

It also should be remembered that Bosnian Muslim forces had slaughtered thousands of Christians first in the surrounding region of Srebrenica and that the “safe haven” was abused. Military generals from the international community who were in Bosnia state this clearly, and Morillon testified in court.”

The over simplification of major media outlets shames the mass media in general because the same cover up and lack of basic facts, are still being told by major international media agencies. Indeed, the coverage and headlines in some media outlets is bordering on anti-Serbian racism. Also, to gloss over the events of what happened prior to the Bosnian Serbs entering Srebrenica is not merely shoddy journalism, it is open manipulation and propaganda.  MORE HERE

Two men on opposing sides of a conflict, and while both killed lots of people, the guy who evacuated the elderly and women and children (from the opposing side) to protect them from getting killed goes to jail forever for “war crimes” and the guy who had everyone on the opposing side (including the elderly and women, and children) brutally tortured, mutilated, burned alive, crucified and massacred gets away with it. Nothing to see here folks, move along – and if you think there is something wrong with how “justice was served” in the cases of these men then you must be an islamophobe or something and are very likely guilty of thought crimes.

Underwear Bomber frowns on your infideling.

and tried to detonate plastic explosives which were stuffed down his tighty-whities? Well, he’s still stealing oxygen and serving four life terms in federal supermax in Colorado. And he’s suing the feds for allegedly violating his constitutional rights.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigeria native who became an al-Qaida operative, alleges he’s being held in long-term solitary confinement, has been forced to eat foods forbidden by his religion, endured harassment yelled by white supremacist inmates saying things offensive to Muslims and has been prohibited from communicating with relatives, including nieces and nephews.

“Prison walls do not form a barrier separating prison inmates from the protections of the United States Constitution,” his 73-page lawsuit said.

It was filed last week in federal court in Colorado against U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Federal Bureau of Prisons and Joe Does 1 through 20. Spokespeople for the Bureau of Prisons and the U.S. Department of Justice declined to comment on the case.

Memory having served me correctly, Abdulmutallab’s father strolled up to a CIA station in Nigeria’s capital and warned them about his son; gave him up. How big of a loser do you have to be for that to happen?

A jury of any demographic mix will dismiss this case – even if it’s 12 Muslims. Who would want to be associated with such a pathetic creature, one who couldn’t even castrate himself properly?

His background is unsurprising. His father is very rich by African standards; he has a mechanical engineering degree from University College London. This is the standard biography for the “old school” terrorists of earlier in the century. Can’t build up your community but you can build a bomb … except Abdulmutallab couldn’t even do that.

So now he has to spend his life pretending not to like bacon and getting laughed at by White Power ‘tards — and others, no doubt –when he could have been enjoying his virgins/Virginians/raisins, ironically because he didn’t pay enough attention to the function of his fizzled feat of engineering. Sad.

I’d sue somebody, too, if I were him, starting with my parents.

As a few people may have noticed, I’ve been going back over posts from my old blog, which I started in 2003. One of the things which has hindered me in deciding what to write about is that, often, I feel like I’m repeating myself. But a long-time fan turned that notion around for me by reminding me that repetition is the vehicle of learning.

The following, from 2004,  is apropos of nothing popular in Social Media right now. Who knows when that will change? It could be seconds after you read it.


A guest asked the following questions about Islam, and the Koran.

juliette i’m not that familiar with the qu’ran. could you give me a citation for your reference?

could you also tell me if this type of activity is a constant over the history of the region? if we go back to 1905 for example, would we see someone lynched then?

finally, could you tell me how lynching and mass terrorism against african americans was able to continue for a full 100 years, without reference to the judeo-christian ethic?

Are Muslims following the tenets of their religion or ignoring same?

Let’s turn it around. During the heyday of white American terrorism of black Americans in the South, were white American Christians following the tenets of Jesus the Christ or ignoring them? If the latter was true, it isn’t too hard to figure it out how it could be so: the same way that present-day Christians ignore the tenets of their religion. You may be familiar with some of the “lesser” ways: lying, cheating, stealing, committing adultery, dishonoring one’s parents, etc. Or even worse, twisting the tenets of their religion to suit their own purposes.

This last sort of behavior shouldn’t have to be explained to anyone who steps out of his/her door in the morning. And failure to live up to one’s professed standards or twisting those standards to self-serving purposes isn’t a failing unique to those who are religious.

It took men of the Christian and Jewish faiths — black men, white men and others — to shame the bulk of white Americans into living up to the spiritual and secular ideals they professed to revere and cherish, whether it was “love thy neighbor as thyself” or the idea spawned from that, “all Men are created equal.”

Back to your first question: does it matter whether jihad started 35 years ago or three years ago? Here’s my point: there is nothing in Islamic doctrine that can be used to shame the Islamists to stop using terror in the attempt to achieve their aims. No Dr. Malik Shakir will come out of the Mosque holding up Muhammad as the “Prince of Peace” who commanded believers to turn the other cheek or take the two-by-four out of his own eye first. Why not? This is why:

“Slay the infidels wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush. (Koran 9:5)

Fight against those who believe not in Allah, and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth [Islam], until they are subdued. (Surat At-Taubah 9:29)

Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection. Allah is an enemy to unbelievers. (Koran 2: 98)

Again, Muslims who terrorize, lynch, burn, and enslave are merely living up to their credo, not ignoring or going against it. That’s why (besides fear of other Muslims) you haven’t seen any Muslims in large numbers publicly repudiating terror. (There are one billion Muslims, right?)

As a wise person said, when someone tells you that they want to kill you, believe them.

I’m old enough to remember when, upon learning of the existence of Black Liberation Theology, Jeremiah Wright, his most famous acolyte—former President Barack Obama—and of many other blacks who carry no love for America or for white people, white persons on the Right who had actively participated in the Civil Rights Movement expressed regret for doing so. My response: really? Silly me. I thought that they did it for the honor of our country.

I swear, it was like all of them received a Dear John letter.

I am reminded of this phenomenon by the ADL’s response to Linda Sarsour – the latest progeny of Leftism and Islamism.

Sarsour’s ride on the media wonder-wheel continues—thanks in part to Jewish individuals and organizations who embrace the idea that haters like Sarsour can’t actually hate them. Recently, the “homegirl in a hijab,” as a fawning New York Times profile described her, delivered the commencement address at the City University of New York’s School of Public Health. It was a strange choice on the part of CUNY, not least because Sarsour has zero professional experience in the field. Prior to the event, critics, many of them Jewish, called upon CUNY to rescind its invitation in light of Sarsour’s rhetoric and associations. A group of progressive Jews released an open letter in defense of Sarsour. “In this time, when so many marginalized communities in our country are targeted on the streets and from the highest offices of government” the letter solemnly declared, “we are committed to bridging communal boundaries and standing in solidarity with one another.”

Also coming to Sarsour’s defense was the Anti-Defamation League, which presumably stands against the defamation of women, Jews, and the Jewish state. “Despite our deep opposition to Sarsour’s views on Israel,” its head Jonathan Greenblatt said, before offering the following non sequitur, “we believe that she has a First Amendment right to offer those views.”

So the ADL would give its scarier adversaries what the latter say they want so that those adversaries will become friend—so that these people will “love them.” Did these people not attend grammar school?

Everyone who did–whether the bully and the bullied–knows that you can’t make the bully loved you, you can only make it worth her while to leave you alone…by any means necessary.

They ought to read their grandparent’s letters and books. But I’m guessing that it has been a while for that.

Remember this?

Omar Mir Seddique, also known as Omar Mateen, was an American mass murderer who killed 49 people and wounded 58 others in a mass shooting at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, 2016. He had been interviewed by the FBI three times and was on their radar because he had made comments sympathetic to terrorists and attended the same Florida mosque as a suicide bomber named Moner Abusalha, who had gone to Syria to blow up Syrian government soldiers in 2014.

When asked why Mateen was dropped from the FBI list, [Former FBI Director James] Comey indicated that the FBI’s concerns about Mateen were eased after a witness told the bureau that Mateen got married, had a child and found steady work.(…)

Likewise, the Boston Marathon terrorists, the Tsarnaev brothers had been investigated and the FBI had even received warnings from Russia of a possible terror attack. NBC reported: In March 2011, the FSB, the Russian intelligence agency that arose from the remnants of the KGB, sent a cable to the FBI with its concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev and the Tsarnaev family. (…)

The letter was a page and a quarter long and very detailed. It included contact information, with addresses and phone numbers, for many of the members of the Tsarnaev family, including Tamerlan and his mother . . . .in June 2011. The FBI investigation of Tamerlan Tsarnaev was closed. According to the report, “the assessment found no links to terrorism.”

Remember the Fort Hood terrorist, Col. Nidal Hasan? An FBI-run terrorism task force knew last December that Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, sent 16 e-mails to Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Muslim cleric in Yemen who supports violence against the West.

When the Fort Hood Shooting and the Boston Marathon Bombing—and 9/11–occurred, Robert Mueller was the FBI director. Could be a coincidence, but consider this 2008 report by Rowan Scarborough:

[The Council on American-Islamic Relations] trains FBI agents across the country on Islam and how to treat Muslims. CAIR’s archived press releases show numerous instances of CAIR representatives training the FBI, as well as the Marine Corps, local law enforcement and government employees.

The FBI severed formal ties with CAIR back in 2009, but the camel’s nose—in the form of a corporate mindset—seems to have remained inside the tent for a few years afterward. Is it still there?

There’s a new acting director, of course (Andrew McCabe), and a new nominee for the position, Christopher Wray. But changing leadership is easier than changing the course of a bureaucratic culture. (It seems to me that the FBI’s present state is the result of a process implemented long before Donald Trump or even Barack Obama.) Also to be kept in mind, the FBI is a cog in the National Intelligence wheel.

There are many who claim that our government has been intentionally infiltrated by those who long to implement fundamental change, whether that change is moral, social and/or spiritual. Our most recent former president was more open about his desire to shake the foundations of this country and, to a certain extent, he was successful. But he didn’t start that fire; he only kept it kindled.

Can Trump Administration can throw water on it?  Time will tell. And, I suspect that much of the Organized Left’s present tactics are intended to distraction the Administration from getting done to this serious business.

As we’ve noted many times here there are two ways media bias works.

The first, and most common is bias of comission where the MSM/left promotes stories or meme’s to attack the right, usually as wikileaks confirmed at the direct behest of the left.  A great example of this are the attacks and ridicule of Ben Carson on CNN.

Removing all pretense of substantive discussion, Don Lemon, Marc Lamont Hill and Peter Beinart began openly mocking the nomination of Dr. Carson for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The scope and severity of the exhibited ridicule was so over the top, fellow CNN panelist Brian Stelter was both visibly trying to hide his glee and simultaneously uncomfortable joining in amid the laughter and mockery.

If this was any other media panel mocking and ridiculing a black nominee for an Obama administration the calls of racist outrage against the network would be overwhelming. However, as customary within their hypocrisy, the pontificating left-wing ideologues cannot even fathom anyone taking exception.

Once again proving that if the left didn’t have double standards, they would have no standards at all.
But the greatest sin of the media is  the ability to define a story as not worthy of promotion as a national story, like this one:

Germany’s leading news programme has been slammed for failing to report the rape and murder of the 19-year-old daughter of an EU official by an Afghan ‘refugee’.

maria-ladenburgerThe Tagesschau show, produced by ARD, the world’s largest public broadcaster, claimed that the story was “too regional”. Others, however, blame political correctness and an establishment desire to silence criticism of mass migration.

Last week’s revelation that 19-year-old Maria Ladenburger – a medical student, migrant home volunteer, and daughter of a prominent European Union (EU) official – was attacked and killed by a recently-arrived 17-year-old migrant shocked the nation.

Despite having a budget of €6.5 billion (£5.5 billion) and 20,617 employees, the public broadcaster decided not to allocate resources to bringing the story to national attention.

ARD’s editor-in-chief, Kai Gniffke, played down the decision, arguing they “very rarely report on individual criminal cases”.

By deciding this news wasn’t fit to print, german media were basically protecting Angela Merkel and her supporters from the consequences of their open borders policy.

Merkel, who recently announced plans to run for a fourth term in September, has seen her popularity plunge in the last year in large part due to her staunch refusal to accept demands from her party’s right wing to limit migrants entering the country to 200,000 per year.

She did not comment on the slaying in Freiburg and has remained determined to keep Germany open to refugees.

That’s the real reason why the MSM hates Breitbart news and Trump’s twitter account.  Liberals like the Kellogg’s people want to delegitimize Breitbart because they dare report stories like this that don’t fit the MSM narrative:

Immigration advocacy groups are asking California Attorney General Kamala Harris to “block federal access” to the database containing names of gang members in the state.
The goal is to block access before President-elect Donald Trump is sworn in, thereby preventing his administration from seeing the names of individuals who could find themselves on a the deportation short list.Immigration advocacy groups are asking California Attorney General Kamala Harris to “block federal access” to the database containing names of gang members in the state. The goal is to block access before President-elect Donald Trump is sworn in, thereby preventing his administration from seeing the names of individuals who could find themselves on a the deportation short list.

Yeah because nothing would unite the rest of the country against the rule of California Liberals like protecting gang members here illegally from deportation.

And they really hate Trump and his tweeting because in 140 characters he can force a story like the Steinle murder onto the national stage that the MSM is determined to bury.

House Committee on the Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) wants Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson to provide information about Nelash Mohamed Das, a citizen of Bangladesh and a lawful permanent resident of the United States arrested by the FBI and charged with attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization by conspiring to murder a US military member in Prince George’s County, Maryland on behalf of ISIS.

Goodlatte told Johnson in a letter Thursday he wanted Das’s immigration and criminal history to determine if there were indicators of his radicalization that the Department of Justice should have been aware of prior to his arrest.

The FBI alleges that in late 2015 and early 2016, Das used social media to express his support for ISIS, including support for the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris, France and San Bernardino, California.

“It is important for the committee to understand how Das became radicalized and to determine whether there were indicators of his radicalization that DHS should have been aware of prior to his arrest.”

I would love it if someone could explain this radicalization concept using layman terms, because, as it stands, I think it’s a phantom—one conjured to drive out the notion that Islam is a violent religion by nature…

…or to drive out the notion that “radicalization” really means that a given Muslim has begun to take his faith seriously.

WWII: Germans surrender to Russians outside Moscow

by baldilocks

Daniel Greenfield again documents the terms of Europe’s willing surrender to the Dar al-Islam.

The UN Commission of Experts identified 1,600 actual cases of rape in the Bosnian War that took place in the former Yugoslavia over a period of years. In Germany, 2,000 Muslim migrants sexually assaulted 1,200 women in a single night in cities across Germany.

The former was considered one of the worst war crimes of the decade. Its perpetrators were bombed and then faced war crimes trials. The perpetrators of the latter received a slap on the wrist.

In Cologne, Hassan and Hussein were handed suspended sentences. Hassan, who had demanded that a man hand over two women to him by bellowing, “Give me the girls, give me the girls – or you’re dead” was tried as a juvenile offender and was sentenced to community service and an integration course.

(…)

Selin Goren, a spokeswoman for a left-wing refugee group, admitted to lying that the men who sexually assaulted her were German instead of Arabs because the act of the rape had a “political dimension”. Instead of thinking of the men who had assaulted her, she thought of a pro-refugee rally in which she had called for fighting “against racism and sexism”.

And predictably the former took a back seat to the latter.

When the police officer asked her if refugees had been responsible, she retorted that they had spoken German while resenting the officer for being so racist as to assume, correctly, that Muslim migrants were to blame.

A friend had told her that she acted like a battered wife protecting her abusive husband.

It’s an accurate description of not just her, but of the entire left which has turned its own values inside out in order to protect Muslim rapists from a theocratic culture not fundamentally different than ISIS which believes that women are fair game during their gleeful invasion of Europe.

My opinion: European in general and Germany specifically isn’t done paying the spiritual price for the perpetrating/allowing the massacres of the 20th century. And I’m not only referring to the Jews–Russians, Poles—both Jew and Gentile—Romani…and the list goes on. Europe’s spiritual problems are and have always been about leadership.

The spiritual price(s) for bad leadership: delusion and the desire for death, brought on by godlessness. Of course, godless leaders were the catalysts for the massacres in the first place.

Observing from across the water bids these questions. How many Americans are similarly deluded? And what of our leaders?

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Enjoy your reward, Fr. Jacques Hamel.

The military victims of the jihad attack at Fort Hood will finally receive their Purple Heart medals, as a result ofpurpleheart-vi

[a] decision by Army Secretary John McHugh [which] follows a change in the medals’ eligibility criteria mandated by Congress, according to the Army announcement. It also comes after a years-long battle by the victims and their families in the aftermath of what was the worst shooting rampage on a U.S. military installation.

Thirteen people [sic; one of the soldiers was pregnant] were killed and more than 30 wounded in the November 2009 attack by former Maj. Nidal Hasan.

Hasan was convicted in August 2013 of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder.dof-medal

Civilian victims are now eligible for the PHM counterpart, the Secretary of Defense Medal for the Defense of Freedom, an award forged by Donald Rumsfeld in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

This is, of course, good news. However this decision bids a few question. Before I ask those questions, let’s remember the original purpose of the Purple Heart medal: to recognize the physical sacrifice(s) of those who engage/are attacked by the enemy.

Excerpts from Wikipedia:

  1. Dated February 23, 1984, Executive Order 12464, authorized award of the Purple Heart as a result of terrorist attacks, or while serving as part of a peacekeeping force, subsequent to March 28, 1973.
  2. Public Law 99-145 authorized the award for wounds received as a result offriendly fire.
  3. The Purple Heart is awarded in the name of the President of the United States to any member of the Armed Forces of the United States who, while serving under competent authority in any capacity with one of the U.S. Armed Services after April 5, 1917, has been wounded or killed. Specific examples of services which warrant the Purple Heart include any action against an enemy of the United States; any action with an opposing armed force of a foreign country in which the Armed Forces of the United States are or have been engaged; while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United States is not a belligerent party; as a result of an act of any such enemy of opposing armed forces; or as the result of an act of any hostile foreign force.
  4. After 28 March 1973, as a result of an international terrorist attack against the United States or a foreign nation friendly to the United States, recognized as such an attack by the Secretary of the Army, or jointly by the Secretaries of the separate armed services concerned if persons from more than one service are wounded in the attack.
  5. The Purple Heart is not awarded for non-combat injuries.

The changed eligibility criteria in the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act is described as follows.

Congress redefined what should be considered an attack by a “foreign terrorist organization,” according to the Army. The legislation states that an event should now be considered an attack by such an organization if the perpetrator “was in communication with the foreign terrorist organization before the attack,” and “the attack was inspired or motivated by the foreign terrorist organization.”

It isn’t surprising, however, that the lawyers who represent most of the families of the victims have harsh words for the bureaucracy which kept the medal criteria from being changed for so long. Remember the phrase “workplace violence?”

Now here are my questions.

  1. Does the president have to sign this change?
  2. If so, has he?
  3. If he hasn’t, do you think he will find a way to get out of it?
  4. If he already has, what will it mean toward his policy toward “radical” Islam?
  5. Will he get back up on his high horse about terrorist attacks workplace violence terrorist attacks in the name of religion?

I’ll wager that the answer to number five is ‘yes.’

*Title change.

Saint Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Alexandria, Egypt

In my new surroundings, I’ve had opportunity to make a new friend. Gary,* an Egyptian immigrant in his 40s, is a security guard in the area and is a Coptic Christian. When he discovered that I knew a little bit about the history of the Copts and their present-day persecution, he almost jumped for joy, as I was the first American he had met in his five years in the USA who knew anything about that church or what has been happening to them.

Gary’s English is very good, but as our conversations gets more complicated, it’s becomes more difficult for him, of course. Well, his English is certainly a heck of a lot better than my Arabic—his native language. (Gary stressed that Egyptians had their own language but were forced to learn Arabic in order to function in the country.)

When I asked how he was adapting to America, he said that he and his wife were having a hard time, but his children had adapted quickly, as these things usually go. For him, that was the main reason to leave: to protect his children—all girls.

At first, he mispronounced the word ‘rapist,’ using a short ‘a’ sound instead of a long one; I helped him out.

I had read about the extermination and “ethnic” cleansing of the Church in Egypt, Syria and Iraq—along with the destruction of church buildings which had stood for nearly 2000 years–but hearing about these things from the mouth of a man who had seen it for himself, filled me with shame about the spoiled Christians in this country. Forget about the feminists, who are grateful for nothing; we Christians have had it so good for so long, that I don’t think most of us can wrap our minds around the kinds of Enemy attacks which our brothers and sisters in Christ are experiencing right this very second at the hands of the foot soldiers in the ascending New Caliphate.

In that spirit, I have begun to pray for the church that exists in Muslim-run countries and for Gary and his family specifically. Also I’m always ready to learn more about Church history and I hope you are, too.

I’m starting here.

*Not his real name; some minor details of his biography are changed.
