Even NBC admits that Barack Hussein Obama has a “manhood” problem

In other words, everybody knows Obama has no balls for dealing with Muslim terrorists and Russian leaders. Probably because he wears them out threatening Israelis and bullying American Christians.

On Sunday’s “Meet the Press” on NBC, New York Times columnist David Brooks took a critical shot at President Barack Obama’s posture regarding his overall foreign policy. 

“Basically since Yalta we’ve had an assumption that borders are basically going to be borders and once that comes into question if in Ukraine or in Crimea or anywhere else, then all over the world all bets are off,” Brooks said. “And let’s face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a — I’ll say it crudely — but a manhood problem in the Middle East. Is he tough enough to stand up to somebody like Assad or Putin?

GREAT NEWS! NYPD to continue undercover surveillance of Muslims despite ‘dhimmi’ Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s dismantling of the spy unit

nypd_muslim_monitoring_mediumThis week, the New York City Police Department shocked many by announcing an end to its Muslim monitoring program, the Zone Assessment Unit. But at a time in which Islamic extremism appears to be an increasingly present risk, the NYPD also appears to be putting extra efforts into undercover programs.

BREITBART The Daily Beast’s Michael Daly reports that operations under new police chief William Bratton will persist in gathering intelligence from communities that appear prone to encouraging individuals to participate in terrorist acts. Without the Zone Assessment Unit, the NYPD will use its larger, more all-purpose Intelligence Division in “an ongoing counter-terrorism effort that includes the use of undercovers and confidential informants. In fact, the department is training more undercover even now.”

Daly argues that New York “may be better defended as the NYPD’s Intelligence Division sharpens its focus on what most demands its attention” now that the resources previously allocated to the unit targeting Muslim extremists can go toward targeting potential terror threats around the city indiscriminately.

While some herald the change as an improvement in the mechanics of fighting terror threats, activists who had opposed the creation of a division specifically dedicated to Islamist terror threats are calling the shutdown a victory, as it would appear to end a specific kind of racial profiling. To those activists, the issue was not a national security one, but one of unfair ethnic profiling. The assumption necessitates the belief that Muslims are being targeted by the NYPD as enemies, not being targeted by terrorists as potential recruits.

The far left, however, have identified the reality that shutting down the program will not mean an end to the ethnic and religious profiling of communities in which terror recruitment groups operate. At the ACLU blog, Noa Yachot warns diversity activists that the end of the unit is not necessarily an end to the activity they oppose. The end would require that the NYPD not treat Muslim community centers as potential grounds for radical Islamic recruitment and for the police not to “treat with suspicion people … ‘wearing traditional Islamic clothing [and] growing a beard,’ abstaining from alcohol, and ‘becoming involved in social activism.’”

Yachot also calls for an end to the “use of informants” and “surveillance cameras,” which would significantly disarm the NYPD’s intelligence apparatus, leaving New Yorkers exposed to threats undiscovered before they are followed through.

A judge in New Jersey found the Zone Assessment Unit’s activities to be constitutional, after a group of Muslims who were targeted sued the NYPD. The judge, dismissing the suit, wrote, “The police could not have monitored New Jersey for Muslim terrorist activities without monitoring the Muslim community itself.”

Evidence of al-Qaeda groups around the world expanding after a significant period of determent following the September 11 attacks continues to grow. This week, a video surfaced online of a large group of al-Qaeda extremists in Yemen convening for a meeting, including more than one dozen who had escaped from a prison in Sana’a, the Yemeni capital. That the incident occurred in broad daylight, with apparently little fear of American intervention, then made its way to YouTube, has alarmed a number of law enforcement officials who fear a potential resurgence of the group.

EGYPT’s Presidential front-runner and retired Field Marshall, Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi, pays a pre-Easter visit to the Coptic Christian pope

This was el-Sisi’s “first public appearance since he formally made his bid for the presidency.” Pope Tawadros II is a strong backer of el-Sisi, having supported his removal of Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013. 

EGYPT-POLITICS-RELIGION-COPTIC-SISI

Breitbart  El-Sisi’s “visit to the Pope’s seat of power at Saint Mark’s Cathedral” is viewed as “a tribute” to Egypt’s Christians. Ousted president Mohamed Morsi sent “a representative” instead of visiting the Cathedral himself.

A statement indicates e-Sisi told the Pope that Christians and Muslims will stand together going forward.  El-Sisi is extremely popular and is “expected to win the coming May 26-27 presidential election.”

Proof that even the so-called ‘moderate’ Muslims believe in the same kind of Islam as the most radical extremists and terrorists do

nomoderateAll these ‘moderate’ Muslims, such as the ones who live in your neighborhood and go to school with your children, the ones you see on MSNBC, the ones who claim “Islam is a religion of peace,” – they all believe that adulterers should be stoned to death and homosexuals should be executed.

EGYPT UPDATE on the move by Obama, Turkey, and Qatar to overthrow the Egyptian government and reinstate the Muslim Brotherhood

As previously reported, Barack Hussein Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood allies in Turkey and Qatar are backing what they call the “Egyptian Liberation Army,” similar to the Free Syrian Army of jihadists, now mainly controlled by al Qaeda, with the goal of turning Egypt into a radical Islamic state.

Furthermore, there are factories run by Terrorists camps located in Gaza and Libya for manufacturing the uniform of the Egyptian Armed and police forces.

Some Libyan fronts provided the Egyptian concerned authorities with information contains plans and documentations which exposed the plans of the “Liberation Army” to attack military units and establishments in Matrouh City in Egypt, and the terrorists elements offside to the Delta cities in Egypt like Mansoura and Sharqia cities. The information also revealed that Muslim Brotherhood managed to include African elements in joining the “Liberation Army” in return of a large amounts of money. And the Muslim Brotherhood International Organization’s support and finance to the “Rebels movement in Libya.

Intelligence bodies monitored an expected visit by “Anas Altikrity” a Muslim Brotherhood leader in the MB international Organization, to the “Liberation Army camps in Libya”. Right now, the “Liberation Army” is working under the symbol of “The Islamic Liberation Army of Libya”, in order to prevent that Egypt interfere in Libya with a military attack to hit terrorists camps, especially after the Egyptian Armed Forces announcement, the creation of “Rapid Deployment Forces” For fighting Terrorism.

Abd Elbasset Azuz, the counselor of Ayman Al-Zawahiry (Al Qaeda leader) is handling the supervision and the establishment of the “Liberation army” camps and training in Sirte, Benghazi and Dirna cities in Libya, with the assistance of Yussef Taher, Ismail Alsalaby and the Egyptian Sarwat Salah Shihata (who was arrested recently in 6 October city in Egypt by the Egyptian concerned authorities) and he provided the Egyptian authorities with a lot of information about the Liberation Army in Libya and their plans.

After the arrest of Sarwat Salalh Shihata in Egypt, he was replaced by Nasser Alhushy. Further information also revealed that Alsalaby who is the founder of the liberation army in Libya, has a very good and close relations and communications with Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Muslim Brothers consider him the Intelligence responsible of Muslim Brotherhood in Libya and he is the mediator and the link between Muslim Brothers of Egypt and Muslim Brothers of Tripoli Libya.

Islmail AlSalaby also threatened Abd Elsalam in this call that any traitor among them will get immediately terminated and assassinated.

According to security bodies in Egypt, General Sameh Alyazl revealed that this liberation army works under the leadership of “Sherif Alradwany” Egyptian terrorist element who participated in the Jihad wars in Afghanistan, Syria and Pakistan. He also mentioned that Mahmoud Ezzat the Muslim Brotherhood leader who managed to escape from Egypt after 30/6 revolt, is participating in instructing these terrorists groups in Libya and also the Muslim Brothers students in the Egyptian universities who recently joined the Liberation army and are launching terror attacks inside the universities in Egypt and against armed and police forces.

General Alyazl also indicated that Asaad Alshekha, former security counselor of Mohamed Mursi, was supervising personally the training and the arming of the Groups of Martyrs 17 February in Libya and he visited their camps when Mursi was in power. And Abd El Karim Belhag the former leader in Al-Qaeda organization and the revolutionaries leader in Libya is the attachment between the Qatari Intelligence and February 17th militias and he is transferring money to these terrorists from Doha.

Abd Elsalam Bassiuny railed against the Egyptian Armed forces and called for Islamist Jihad against the Egyptian Military – and confirmed that they must work on destroying the Army institution and God will support and help Islamist and Muslim Brothers in their jihad war against the Egyptian Armed forces.

The following video is showing armed forces of military militias convoys in Libya under the name of “Shura Council of Islamist youth of Dirna in libya”. It is also showing a long line of SUVS carrying medium and heavy weapons and going on a mountain road and carrying the black flag of Al-qaeda.

Another video showing the terrorists and Muslim Brotherhood militias training in Gaza for the “Liberation Army” to launch terror attacks against Egypt and against the Egyptian armed forces. The video also shows the symbol of Muslim Brothers organization and “Rabaa’s armed sit-in sign” Four fingers.

All the concerned authorities in Egypt, including the Armed forces are aware of these terrorists camps in Libya and ready to launch military attacks in case of any terror attacks attempts against the Egyptian territory.

The US-MB-Qatari-Turkish-Iranian and Muslim Brothers patronage to terrorists camps are targeting to attack the Egyptian territory not only through the Egyptian Libyan borders, but also through other terrorists camps that exist in Gaza, Sudan, Yemen and the terrorists leaders centers in Ankara, Tehran, Doha and Khartoum. This is in addition to the terrorist attacks launched inside Egypt by Muslim Brotherhood and their militias, in order to bring down the Egyptian State.

Mideast Egypt

Egyptian sovereign sources declared that Egyptian concerned authorities have information that representatives of the Iranian revolutionary Guards also visited Libya in secret and had meetings with some Egyptian terrorist elements in “Al-Baroudy Gulf” Iranian Area, and agreed on Iran’s support to the leaders of the “Liberation Army” – to provide them with special wireless devices for decoding the Egyptian devices and night imaging devices to monitor the borders.

In addition, Egyptian sovereign sources confirmed that they monitored direct communications between officials responsible in Qatar and in Iran with the participation of a famous Turkish businessman who is the mediator of Muslim Brotherhood organization, they discussed the recent situation in Egypt.

On 20/3/2014, Libya asked for International Urgent support and the United Nations help to Libya in fighting terrorism inside the Libyan territories, after many Libyan cities got under the control of different terrorists groups, specially the oil fields. Did the International community or the United Nations respond to the Libyan SOS? Of course not!

Libya is ruled by about 1700 groups which include armed and terrorist Militias led by Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda Organization:

After the fall of Qaddafi’s regime in Libya which was sponsored and financed by US, NATO and the blessings of the United Nations, Libya has no army and what’s left of it can’t do anything to protect the country. A useless temporary Government that can’t even protect itself.   Libya is ruled right now by 1700 armed groups of militias who serve the Muslim Brotherhood, Jihadi armed groups and Al Qaeda Organization.

They are leading thousands of Armed Militias in Libya in launching terror attacks inside Libya against foreign diplomats, official institutions and the representatives of the temporary government, opposition parties and civilians.They are turning all cities in Libya into separate and divided Islamic Emirates ruled under Islamic Sharia Laws.

UK: Muslim ‘Trojan Horse’ plot reveals girls had to sit in the back of the classroom and Christian students often had no teacher at all

1002668_1487595338123031_3558778701524297133_n

An investigation into Birmingham schools at the centre of a plot to introduce hardline Islamist teaching has found pupils were illegally segregated and non-Muslim students were discriminated against.

UK Daily Mail Inspectors also revealed that the GCSE syllabus was restricted to conform with ‘conservative Islamic teaching’, with lessons in sex education banned and evolution only covered ‘briefly’.

Department for Education inspectors were ordered into Park View School and its sister schools, Golden Hillock and Nansen, after a letter dubbed ‘Trojan Horse’ was uncovered apparently outlining a plot by Muslim hardliners to drive moderate headteachers out of schools.

article-2583905-1C28C4E700000578-364_634x608_thumb

The unsigned and undated letter claimed that a small but radical group of Muslims was pursuing its own agenda in the classrooms, with uncooperative headteachers and governors forced out.

In a document leaked to The Telegraph, inspectors found that in Park View school, girls were forced to sit around the back or edges of the classroom while boys were allowed to sit at the front.

Officials from the school had previously claimed that any segregation was voluntary, but inspectors were told by students that teachers set out the seating plans. In some subjects there was even entirely separated teaching in separate rooms, the report says.

jihadist-schools

Shiekh Shady al-Suleiman, a known al-Qaeda sympathiser who has previously said gay people should be stoned to death and espoused anti-semetic views, was also invited to speak to children.

At Golden Hillock five Christian students in Year 11 were ‘left to teach themselves’ religious education after the teacher gave all their time ‘to the students who are doing the Islamic course’. All discussion of sexual orientation or intimacy was banned at the same school, limiting lessons on biology, the arts and literature.

Pupils at two of the schools said the theory of evolution was only covered ‘briefly’ in biology, while lessons on the body structure and menstrual cycle were banned as ‘Muslims are not allowed to study matters such as reproduction with the opposite sex.’

article-2608662-1D359D0900000578-332_634x357

Despite these restrictions, Arabic lessons were compulsory for all students. Pupils were also encouraged to begin and end lessons with  prayer, and loudspeakers were used to broadcast calls to prayer.

Headteachers at the schools were marginalised, according to the report, with all three schools in reality being run by Tahir Alam, who ran the board of governors. Inspectors say close relatives of the school management were appointed without proper background checks and that, in some schools, the headteachers were unaware of the names of some of the most senior staff.

Park View headteacher Lindsey Clark resigned last month after being reduced to a figurehead with no real control over her school. The report also contains allegations that school governors were rude or dismissive towards female staff, who were excluded from important meetings. In some cases, male governors even refused to shake their female colleagues’ hands.

Speaking to MailOnline, a Department for Education spokesperson said: ‘We do not comment on leaked documents. ‘The allegations made in relation to some schools in Birmingham are very serious and we are investigating all evidence put to us in conjunction with Ofsted, Birmingham City Council and the police.

‘It is absolutely vital these investigations are carried out impartially, without pre-judgment. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.’ A spokesman for Park View school was unavailable for comment.

Man killed by tiger inside Saudi Zoo

Not surprising, considering the deplorable conditions in which animals in some Saudi zoos are forced to live.

4107878283

Emirates  An Asian worker at a private zoo in Saudi Arabia died after he was attacked by a tiger inside the zoo while he was cleaning the place. Colleagues managed to drag the worker out of the zoo to prevent the tiger from devouring him but he died before he was taken to hospital.

Police said they were investigating the incident at the small zoo near a housing complex in the eastern town of Khobar. Sabq newspaper said the unidentified worker, in his 40s, died of severe wounds in the head, shoulders and other parts of his body.

Emaciated tigers in one of the richest countries on earth

Blueabaya  At the Fantasy Land amusement park zoo in Riyadh,  life for the wild animals takes place in small metal cages placed next to each other. The animals have absolutely nothing in the cages, which are outside in a hall with no air-conditioning or heating.

Most shockingly they had large animals such as a grizzly bear and adult lions in tiny cages. The animals are never let out of the cages and there is only one zoo keeper taking care of them all.

The big animals eat, sleep and eliminate in the same space

A few fans were placed here and there around the hall. During Saudi winters the night time temperatures drop near 0 Celcius(32F) and in the summer temperatures soar to the high 40s daily reaching even 53C(127C). This places the animals in great risk of hypothermia or heat stroke and dehydration.

Placing a huge wild animal such as a tiger in a 3x3m cage is utterly disgusting, especially in Saudi-Arabia, one of the richest countries in the world. Having them regularly transported in those cages all over the country is even more disturbing.

‘HAPPY BRITISH MUSLIMS’ feel-good video gets denounced and condemned by unhappy British Muslims

Muslims in Britain created an uplifting singing and dancing video in an attempt to counter the stereotype of the angry, offended, insulted, unassimilated Muslim.

But along come the angry, offended, insulted, unassimilated Muslims, thusly confirming these negative stereotypes by trashing the well-intentioned efforts of the happy Muslims, accusing them of insulting Islam by acting like non-Muslims.

Afghan woman mutilated by her own husband for refusing to sell her daughters as child brides

SatiraIn December last year, 23-year-old Sitara was asleep on the floor with her daughters when her husband woke her. He needed money for a fix of heroin and crystal meth — an addiction he’d developed over the course of their marriage. When she was married off to him as a child bride at the age of seven, his drug of choice was hashish. But now this man, 20 years her senior, was a full-blown addict. 

Answering Muslims  He wanted to divorce Sitara so he could take their daughters and marry them off for a few thousand dollars for each girl’s virginity. But Sitara refused — this protective mother adamant her children were not going to suffer the same fate as her.

She’d reached her limit with his destructive drug use and the monster he’d turned into.  But she didn’t realize just how much of a monster he’d become. That night he demanded money and a simple ring she was wearing — the only jewelry she possessed. When Sitara said no, he bashed in her head until part of her brain was protruding from her skull. She was almost unconscious. He then pinned her down, got a knife and cut off her nose and upper lip.

FINALLY! Someone in the mainstream media ‘gets it’ about the danger that Islam and CAIR pose to America

“A triumph for the Muslim Boston Bombers.”

By Roger Scruton for FORBES

saudi-chechen-connection-in-boston-jihadi-bombings-25.4.2013

The two bombers who killed and maimed innocent people at the Boston marathon a year ago had come as refugees to America, from conflicts that America and her people did nothing to cause. They had been granted the privileges of a law-abiding democracy, including education, health care and the precious freedoms for which Americans have fought in two world wars. Their situation was incomparably better than it would have been, had they stayed behind in Chechnya.

Among the many privileges that they enjoyed religious freedom was by no means the least important. They were able to attend their local mosque, to take part in its services and activities and to absorb whatever lessons it had to impart, without fear of persecution from their Christian, Jewish, Hindu or atheist neighbours.

Something happened, however, to turn these two brothers against the gentle society that surrounded them. We don’t know what it was; but we have a very good suspicion. And the object of that suspicion is Islam. Because we live in a tolerant society, which believes in equality before the law and the right of each individual to a faith of his own, we don’t allow ourselves to criticise Islam, but only to take issue with what we take to be the abuse of it.

Screen-shot-2013-04-19-at-10.03.46-AM

Our politicians and commentators lean over backwards to distinguish the Islam of ordinary Muslims from the extremism of the radicals, and no doubt they are right to do so, for this too is part of hospitality. Moreover it is inconceivable to me that my friends who practise the Muslim faith should turn on their law-abiding neighbours and destroy them in the name of Allah.

GeraldoTweet

Nevertheless, we cannot simply disregard the evidence, that there are Muslims among us who interpret their religion in another way. The liberal mind-set, which blames their crimes on ‘Islamophobia’, as though we, who threatened no one, were to blame for the attacks on us, shows a wilful disregard of the truth, and a crazy inversion of cause and effect. No doubt we should be careful not to be provoked. And the peaceful ceremonies with which the people of Boston have marked the anniversary of the bombings show that they have not been provoked, and that they continue to live in the open and charitable way for which the bombers chose, for reasons of their own, to punish them.

BostonBombing-3AmericanDeads

But let’s face it, planted in the heart of Islam is the worm of contempt for the infidel, and this worm can lodge in the brains of otherwise reasonable people and gnaw away at their conscience until no conscience remains. If we do not acknowledge this, then we do an injustice not only to ourselves, but also to those Islamic thinkers, from Ibn Rushd in medieval Andalusia to Muhammad Ali Jinnah in modern Pakistan, who have worked to reconcile the absolutism of the Koran with the demands of civil society.

It is in order to emphasize this that Ayaan Hirsi Ali has put her life on the line. Coming to Holland as a refugee from Somalia she set out to remind us of our incredible good luck. She told us that we in the West are heirs to the Enlightenment, which teaches that all people are equal, that women are not the property of men, that we can resolve our conflicts without violence and by means of a secular and man-made law, that we can live without obeying the arbitrary commands of self-appointed men of God, and in obedience to the conscience that all rational beings share.

quote-there-is-a-huge-difference-between-being-tolerant-and-tolerating-intolerance-ayaan-hirsi-ali-206442

She herself was the victim of the oppressive attitude to women that is still, today, the norm in so many Islamic societies. She suffered genital mutilation as a child and was forced to flee from an arranged marriage. But she took it on herself to explain what that kind of oppression means, and to appeal on behalf of the many women who are not allowed to enjoy the freedoms in search of which she made the long and difficult journey to the Netherlands.

I am not in favour of the growing habit among universities of awarding honorary degrees to politicians, CEOs and celebrities, merely in order to gain status for themselves or to illustrate their political correctness. An honorary degree ought to reflect the recipient’s achievements in the intellectual sphere, when these achievements are either great in themselves, or an expression of a life informed by public spirit and lived on behalf of the rest of us.

It gave me great pleasure, therefore, when Ayaan Hirsi Ali was awarded an honorary doctorate by Brandeis University – to be conferred precisely now, at the first anniversary of the Boston bombings. What better way to show that we stand for something, that we believe in ourselves and the people who are prepared to make sacrifices on our behalf?

honorkillingLG-vi

The intellectual life as we know it and as our universities are obliged to endorse it, is a life in freedom, in which the dissenter is protected against every orthodoxy that would seek to suppress him. To honour Ayaan Hirsi Ali, whose battle on behalf of intellectual freedom has awoken so many of us to its value, is to show, as all universities should show, a commitment to the true life of the mind.

sionbattailepolitics1367823608-vi

The award was all the more gratifying in that Brandeis university, founded in 1948, and named in honour of Louis Brandeis (1856-1941), the first Jewish Justice of the US Supreme Court, has made a point of offering a non-sectarian education under the sponsorship of the local Jewish community. It is a valued and civilising presence in the Boston area and in the intellectual life of Massachusetts. The award of this degree at this critical and anxious time made a clear statement, on behalf of the values that Ayaan Hirsi Ali has defended in her distinguished and beautifully written books. What better way of expressing our solidarity with the victims of the Boston bombing?

r100000mutilatedbyfgm22_4_2012-vi

Inevitably, of course, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) protested. Hadn’t a death sentence been passed on this troublesome woman? Wasn’t she guilty as an apostate, and hadn’t she spoken out against the society that created her and to which her allegiance was owed? Wasn’t all this stuff about the rights of women really ‘Islamophobia?’

Brandeis1

Knowing the sanctimonious clap-trap with which CAIR masks its contempt for the American idea of freedom, I was not surprised by this. But when I learned that 85 of the 350 members of the faculty at Brandeis had, in response, signed a petition calling for the award to be rescinded, on the grounds that Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a purveyor of ‘hate speech’, and that her presence would make Muslim students ‘uncomfortable’, I recognized the real problem that we now confront, which is not Islam, but the liberal mind-set.
