INDONESIA, the world’s largest Muslim nation, is home to the Surabaya ‘Zoo of Death,’ where the latest victim of this wretched animal park was a lion found hanging by its neck in its cage

INDONESIA’S SURUBAYA ZOO, where more than 50 animals have died in the last 3 months; where a giraffe died with 20kg of plastic bags in its stomach; where a Sumatran tiger’s digestive tract rotted away after it was routinely fed formaldehyde-laced meat; where an 18-month old lion got his head stuck between steel cables in his cage and strangled to death

zoo-of-death

UK Daily Mail  The world’s cruellest zoo has claimed another victim after an African lion was found hanging in its cage, it emerged today. The Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia, which has outraged readers around the world after an expose on the treatment of its animals, is being investigated by police following the death of the 18-month-old lion called Michael. But the lion’s body was removed before police were able to examine it and cannot now be found.

In the wake of Michael the lion’s death, zoo spokesman Agus Supangkat denied that his death was caused by zookeepers’ negligence. ‘We are still investigating how the steel cables could entrap the African lion’s head,’ he told the Globe.  ‘Michael was relatively young. He was only one and a half years old.

A MailOnline investigation into the zoo before Christmas found numerous cases of animals living in miserable conditions, including a young elephant that was chained by three legs, one of which was ulcerated because of its tight shackles.

Dozens of petitions were started pleading for the zoo to be closed and animal rights groups have added their voice to the demands. But a management team, headed by the Surabaya Mayor, Mrs Tri Rismaharini, has resisted improvements saying they want to retain the original structures erected by Dutch colonialists in 1916.

UK Daily Mail  The young elephant has tugged at his shackled hind leg so often that the manacles have cut through the flesh, leaving it raw. Not that freeing himself would help. A chain on his left front leg means he can move neither forwards, backwards nor sideways. The elephant’s owner has tethered the youngster because he prefers to tend to his small shop in the grounds of the Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia.

Money comes first. And so, day after day, week after week, the elephant stands there, being released from his chains only at the end of each day.

Anyone finding the scene depressing, and who turns away to look for more happy animals in the zoo would eventually leave, as I did, utterly depressed. Surabaya Zoo has been branded the worst in the world and when I walked through this animal torture ground I was left in no doubt its reputation was well earned.

In another cage, a sad rhinocerous hornbill looks up at the blue sky, trying to take off from its perch, but there is no room to flap its wings. Well over 50 animals have died here in the past three months, says Tony Sumampau, a former member of the zoo’s temporary management team, who had finally left in despair. ‘The keepers have stalls that they run selling food and drinks and it’s more important for them to make money than it is to be taking care of their animals.’

The state of the zoo’s animals came to world-wide attention following the death of a giraffe in 2012 that was found with no less than 20 kilograms of plastic bags in its stomach from people throwing candy bars at it.

The zoo, was opened in 1916 during Dutch colonial rule, and next to nothing has been done to improve it. Instead, more and more animals have been packed in. A report by an independent team set up by Indonesia’s forestry ministry called for the animals be moved to other zoos but nothing has been done. Other zoos refuse to take the animals because of their condition and the fear that many of them carrying diseases.

Sitting alone is another orangutan. I cannot believe what I see – she is chewing on the yellow top of a marker pen someone has thrown at her. She pushes it forward between her lips, then sucks it back into her mouth. I fear she will soon swallow it. Beside her, rats scurry in and out of holes in an embankment.

InfiniteFrogs  For those of you who haven’t heard of this place, it first shot to internet infamy a few years ago, when the Jakarta Post coined the phrase “Zoo of Death” in an article about a deceased giraffe, which was found to have a 40 pound ball of plastic in its stomach. The story was shocking and the name stuck – particularly as Surabaya Zoo kept up the work of killing the wild animals it was meant to protect. Approximately 25 animals per month died or went missing at the zoo.

But the abuse goes back further than this. The East Java Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA) had previously conducted an investigation in August 2010, which found that negligent keepers, corruption, and filthy conditions were to blame for most of the animal deaths. It is alleged that zookeepers were stealing meat which they sold to the black market. Animals were also allegedly being stolen by the zookeepers and sold – dead or alive.

The animals who don’t stave to death end up euthanized due to other conditions.

The zoo shot to stratospheric, “Ted-Bundy-like” infamy in 2012/13, when the story of Melani emerged. Melani, a 15 year old critically endangered Sumatran tiger, had been fed chemically tainted meat for several years, destroying her digestive system and causing her weight to drop to 44 kilograms — half the weight of a healthy tiger. Melani became the poster animal for the cause – the powerfully haunting images of her condition, amidst the backdrop of the disgusting cell in which she was kept, caused an internet storm of protest.

Throughout 2012 and 2013, internet campaigners and animal welfare group Cee4Life raised awareness of Melani’s plight in an effort to shame the Indonesian authorities into taking action. Global petitions containing 184,488 signatures were presented to Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan in in his Jakarta office in July 2013. While at the meeting, the Minister appeared unmoved by the petitions, and the zoo administrators (who were surprise attendees at the meeting) even disputed the evidence presented. They claimed that the photos were fake, and that the animals were treated very well at Surabaya Zoo.

For example on July 13th 2013 under the cover of darkness, zoo staff attempted to clandestinely move four endangered hippos. Two dozen staff surrounded the hippos, and they were beaten with bamboo poles in an attempt to move them, causing facial and neck injuries.

Melani was rescued in June/July 2013, and is now receiving professional care. Dozens of other animals have also been rescued in the second half of 2013, although the Mayor of Surabaya has referred to them as stolen, and alleges that the administrators traded the animals for vehicles and other items.

The barbarity of the hanged lion images may finally have forced the authorities to act. On January 22nd, the Jakarta Globe reported that a high level meeting has resulted in the administrators of the zoo being sacked. “This definitive license (to administer the zoo) will be given to the mayor this week,” Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan said following a meeting with Surabaya Mayor Tri Rismaharini and President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Whether this leads to the improvement of the zoo is not certain. Mayor Rismaharini is deemed as popular with the citizens of Surabaya, who consider her to not be corrupt. However the mayor and her team have limited experience in the care of wild animals, and has often refused access to professionals wanting to better the care of the animals at Surabaya Zoo.

Chandrika

Cee4Life has published an open letter to the mayor begging her to allow professionals access to the animals, to which the mayor has not yet responded. It is also alleged she is refusing to update the outdated and cruel Victorian era enclosures, as she believes it would destroy the atmosphere of the zoo.

Only time will tell if the world’s worst zoo will be closed, or dragged into the modern world. One thing is for sure, the internet community is greatly helping the cause. You can add your voice by signing this author’s petition and the Cee4Life petition.

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.”

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

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

The big cats eat, sleep and eliminate in the same tiny cage

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.

Why you should fear your ‘peaceful’ Muslim neighbors

Islam-means-peace-e1397627877279

A German’s View on Islam

The author of this piece is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist. A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When he was asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

‘Very few people were true Nazis,’ he said, ‘but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care.

I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.’

We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace.

Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.

It is the fanatics who march.

It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide.

It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave.

It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. 

It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque.

It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals.

It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent majority,’ is cowed and extraneous.

Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.

China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.

And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving’?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:

Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.

Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

Now Islamic prayers have been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa too while the Lord’s Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?) The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.

In Australia, and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them.

Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket.

Food on aircraft have the halal emblem, just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation’s shores.

In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of “no-go” zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not intrude upon.

Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.

As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts – the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand.

So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it, and they also continue to send it on – before it’s too late.

And we are silent….

The Maccabeats as Les ‘Jewish’ Miserables for Passover

Who are the MACCABEATS?

testimonial_maccabeats

Often travelling with little more than the shirts on their backs and the ties on their necks, the Maccabeats have entertained and inspired hundreds of audiences worldwide. Using nothing more than the unadulterated human voice, a clean-cut presentation, and a little Jewish humor, this unique group of singers is able to connect with fans of all backgrounds and ages.

Though the Maccabeats aren’t your grandfather’s synagogue choir, their ideology and identity play an important part in what they do. Strongly committed to the philosophy of Torah u-Madda, the integration of traditional and secular wisdom, the Maccabeats perform an eclectic array of Jewish, American, and Israeli songs.

There is nothing irrational or ‘racist’ about ‘Islamophobia’

BDS0rk3CIAA3Za4_jpglargevi-vi

It occurred to me, a while back, that I’d never heard anyone use the word Christophobia.  It seemed to me that, given the world’s great post-modern fear of Christian morality, accusations of Christophobia ought to abound. So I googled ‘Christophobia,’ and sure enough, there were a few hits – around 33,000 – a mere pittance compared with Islamophobia, at around 6 million hits. Hmmm … 

The405Media  We often hear words like Islamophobia thrown around, mostly at conservatives, usually as pejoratives; so why don’t we hear much about Christophobia?

  • When was the last time you heard a Christian angrily deriding someone, shouting down an opponent as Christophobic, or in any other way anti-Christian? It never happens.
  • Christians don’t riot when someone portrays Jesus on a cross upside-down, or in a glass of piss.
  • Christians don’t kill over a mis-handled Bible.
  • Christians don’t issue death threats at every perceived insult.
  • Christians don’t perceive everything as an insult in the first place.

blasphemylawcrime-vi

Christianity is a true religion of peace. But even so, lots of people want to kill it. It must be really threatening. So, why aren’t more people called Christophobic? Investigating further, this one piece stood out, exploring Islamist Christophobia:

The Global War on Christians in the Muslim World, by … Ayaan Hirsi Ali; the same Ayaan Hirsi Ali over whom Brandeis University recently humiliated itself; the great Ayaan Hirsi Ali, crusader for Islamic women’s rights, crusader for freedom from Islamo-fascist oppression, and survivor of Islamo-fascist oppression.

1464598_10202296261395284_443977781_n

CAIR called Hirsi Ali Islamophobic. Ha! A terrorist organization calling someone Islamophobic! Kind of lends credence to the point about pejoratives, doesn’t it?

Here are the types of things that a literal Western Christophobe would be afraid of:

  • disapproval of promiscuous sex
  • disapproval of the mainstreaming of homosexuality
  • disapproval of abortion
  • disapproval of breaking any of the Ten Commandments

Here are the types of things that a literal Western Islamophobe would be afraid of:

  • beheadings for offending the Koran
  • murderous attacks on civilians
  • punishment of death for religious conversion
  • being stoned to death for showing a body part
  • being killed for being homosexual
  • being raped for complaining about being raped
  • violent jihad against people of other faiths
  • having a hand cut off as punishment for a crime
  • the imposition of sharia law on our legal system

infidelophobia1vi-vi

It seems to me that there is a case to be made for Islamophobia. I see no case at all for Christophobia. Does that explain why we hear so much more about Islamophobia? Na! Clearly, words like Islamophobic are most often used not to define people like Hirsi Ali, but to attack them – straw man arguments.

The denigration of people as Islamophobic is less amusing given the current rise of Islamism across the globe. As Arab Spring became Islamist Winter, Christian communities are under attack in Syria, Egypt, Iran, Libya, Pakistan, and elsewhere.

8_468779253155469_1727595302_n-vi

Islamists dream of the Caliphate. They no more want America to exist as a free country than Islamic Jihad wants Israel to exist. It seems quite unreasonable to dismiss concern about all this as Islamophobia. Paradoxically, it seems quite reasonable for Christians  to be Islamophobic.

As the old saying goes, “it’s not paranoia if they really are out to kill you.”

FOX News’ Bob Beckel right again about Arab Muslims

Apparently, FOX News’ leading Islam critic, liberal Bob Beckel, agrees with the readers of BNI that Brandeis University rescinded the honorary degree promised to Ayann Hirsi Ali because they don’t want to lose funding from their rich Arab Gulf State benefactors.

Ayann Hirsi Ali hits back at Brandeis University

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

Ayaan Hirsi Ali released the following statement in response to Brandeis University’s sudden decision to rescind its offer of an honorary degree. 

See Ayaan tonight on The Kelly File on FOX News at 9PM EST

Breitbart  “Yesterday Brandeis University decided to withdraw an honorary degree they were to confer upon me next month during their Commencement exercises. I wish to dissociate myself from the university’s statement, which implies that I was in any way consulted about this decision. On the contrary, I was completely shocked when President Frederick Lawrence called me—just a few hours before issuing a public statement—to say that such a decision had been made.

“When Brandeis approached me with the offer of an honorary degree, I accepted partly because of the institution’s distinguished history; it was founded in 1948, in the wake of World War II and the Holocaust, as a co-educational, nonsectarian university at a time when many American universities still imposed rigid admission quotas on Jewish students. I assumed that Brandeis intended to honor me for my work as a defender of the rights of women against abuses that are often religious in origin. For over a decade, I have spoken out against such practices as female genital mutilation, so-called ‘honor killings,’ and applications of Sharia Law that justify such forms of domestic abuse as wife beating or child beating. Part of my work has been to question the role of Islam in legitimizing such abhorrent practices. So I was not surprised when my usual critics, notably the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), protested against my being honored in this way.

“What did surprise me was the behavior of Brandeis. Having spent many months planning for me to speak to its students at Commencement, the university yesterday announced that it could not “overlook certain of my past statements,” which it had not previously been aware of. Yet my critics have long specialized in selective quotation – lines from interviews taken out of context – designed to misrepresent me and my work. It is scarcely credible that Brandeis did not know this when they initially offered me the degree.

“What was initially intended as an honor has now devolved into a moment of shaming. Yet the slur on my reputation is not the worst aspect of this episode. More deplorable is that an institution set up on the basis of religious freedom should today so deeply betray its own founding principles. The ‘spirit of free expression’ referred to in the Brandeis statement has been stifled here, as my critics have achieved their objective of preventing me from addressing the graduating Class of 2014. Neither Brandeis nor my critics knew or even inquired as to what I might say. They simply wanted me to be silenced. I regret that very much.

“Not content with a public disavowal, Brandeis has invited me ‘to join us on campus in the future to engage in a dialogue about these important issues.’ Sadly, in words and deeds, the university has already spoken its piece. I have no wish to ‘engage’ in such one-sided dialogue. I can only wish the Class of 2014 the best of luck—and hope that they will go forth to be better advocates for free expression and free thought than their alma mater.

“I take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported me and my work on behalf of oppressed woman and girls everywhere.”

A real live ‘Alice of Arabia’ – The ABC Family TV Series that CAIR thugs got scrapped before it started production

ABC-Family TV recently announced a new series about a half-American/half-Saudi Arabian teenager who was kidnapped by her relatives in Saudi Arabia and forced to live like a prisoner there, a life ‘behind the veil.’ Calling the series “Islamophobic,” CAIR managed to pressure ABC into dropping it.

This testimony by Yasmeen A. Davis about being held captive in Saudi Arabia by her father, and the struggle by her mother to get her out, proves that the ABC series was not Islamophobic, but Islamoreality.

MALAYSIA AIRLINES 370: A theory that makes the proliferation of “lost at sea” explanations all wet

WPTV Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 generic_1394973028231_3475267_ver1.0_640_480Everyone wants to know “What Happened to Malaysian Flight 370?” Here’s one from a former flight operations officer for Flying Tigers (the largest all-cargo airline in the world at one time), who had been responsible for complete flight plans, weight and balance for B-747 and DC8-63 freighters. These were all international flights between the U.S. and SE Asia, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam and Seoul. He was also director of cargo for a major foreign flag carrier and worked with diplomats and U.S. Department of Transportation officials.

ctm-0314-ward-640x360

WND by Ben Kinchlow (h/t Frederic F)  My friend, we’ll call him “Allen,” had some strong opinions on the matter, and what he had to say may be disturbing to some. The scenario that he put forth in our conversation is something the experts in media and government have not addressed. According to Allen, what the media has reported so far “sounds like a wild ride in Disneyland – fantasy and fear – making no sense and confusing both viewers and family members.”

Perhaps the best course of action, unlike the media coverage, is to let Allen speak for himself. The following is the essence of our conversation:

“Ben, in my opinion, a cover-up has begun. The plane took off from Kuala Lumpur destined for Beijing, China. Look, airplanes don’t just fall out of the sky. First, this aircraft had more than enough fuel to reach its destination, with an additional three hours’ worth. Next, the airplane had a flight crew of both pilot and co-pilot. Every two-man international flight of such length would most likely have a ‘deadhead’ crew of a captain and first officer onboard in case of emergency. The news organizations have never mentioned this procedure when the issue of a passenger manifest was discussed. There was the mention of an ‘unidentified flight engineer’ onboard. I laughed out loud when I heard this, because flight engineers have not existed in the new generation aircraft, commercially, in over 20 years. There are no flight engineers, nor are there navigators.”

He continued, “It is reported the MH370 flight departed Malaysian airspace and made a 90-degree turn to the West and the transponders disengaged. The rumors of this plane flying out to the Indian Ocean may be correct, but certainly not for eight hours. From this point on, there is no communication with MH370. No distress calls, nothing! It would be very easy for any additional flight crew that may have been onboard to either work in conjunction with the pilot and first officer or even take over. Either way, there had to be experienced flight deck crews to successfully take control of the aircraft. There have also been reports of the plane climbing to an altitude of 45,000 feet, though most commercial aircraft rarely go over 41,000.”

Allen continued, “MH370 flying very close to another aircraft would not be considered by most ground controls as anything but one aircraft. It would be very easy for the flight to shadow another commercial airline on the same flight path from the Indian Ocean to the vicinity of one of these rogue nations. Radar would not necessarily detect two aircraft.

“This would make total sense, especially considering there are some very high mountain ranges along the Indian route. As the aircraft approached the destination selected by the individuals in control, it would then drop to an altitude below radar detection. There are others, like me, who believe this flight is most likely on the ground in one piece, and the most likely area would be a rogue nation such as Pakistan or Iran.”

“Wait Ben,” he said as I started to interrupt, “this makes sense if you consider that Malaysia is majority Islamic and has a history of being a safe haven for terrorists and their plans. The Malaysia Airlines’ CEO, flight crew, spokespersons and prime minister are all Islamic. I must confess, I heard little or nothing regarding Islam or ‘radar shadowing’ in the reporting.”

He further stated, “This scenario is more than likely the case if one considers terrorist involvement.”

He then asked me, “Media reports have suggested possibilities ranging from mechanical failure, smoke in the cockpit, or dangerous cargo on the aircraft. Any one of these scenarios might be possible, but wouldn’t the crew be trained to file numerous distress calls if that were the case? They have made every excuse to support mechanical failure, but doesn’t it seem strange to you that a fire or something mechanical would occur more than eight hours later over the deepest waters in the world without one single distress call or notice? Finally, these pilots are professionals; why, then, was MH370 thousands of miles off course over the Indian Ocean?”

He wasn’t finished yet. And let me say this: My friend is not given to flights of fancy, nor is he anti-ethnic; he simply believes that Americans, based on the free press provision in the Constitution, should have factual, not conjectural or censored, reportage. He went on further to clearly state that, in his opinion, “This scenario is more than mere conjecture.”

“Ben, listen, it seems to me, as of this discussion today, the world is being led around like elephants grabbing the tail of the one in front. In my considered opinion, this could be one of the biggest charades in aviation history. The world must stop pretending this was anything but a criminal action, orchestrated at the highest levels of the Malaysian Government and rogue fanatics out to destroy both American and Israeli interests.”

I said, “Come on, Allen, that’s pretty far out, and what gives you the idea that Muslims are involved?”

He paused for a moment, and I could tell he was considering his reply, “Man, don’t you know that for over five decades Islamic terrorists have not only threatened to fly a commercial aircraft into Tel Aviv, but continue to call for the end of both Israel and the United States?

“With all due respect, terrorists do not care about human life. Islamic terrorists flew three hijacked aircraft, loaded with passengers, into the World Trade Center buildings and the Pentagon, and only the actions of some passengers caused one to crash into the lush Pennsylvania countryside instead of the U.S. Capitol building. Islamic terrorists place no value on the lives of infidels.”

There was a long silence, and then he said, “My heart and deepest sympathies go out to the families of the passengers who have suffered this cruel action by potential terrorists, Malaysia Airlines, and its government (which owns the airline).”

He paused, then added, “It is my considered opinion that, more than likely, every country involved in this search knows much more than what we are seeing and hearing on global news.”

I have pondered Allen’s remarks, and after reconsidering the Benghazi “incident” and other issues on which the current administration and mainstream media seemed to have been less than forthcoming, could I simply disregard his positions?

I may not agree with everything he said, but I do find it interesting, that with all our modern technology (some of which, from a drone hundreds of feet up, can locate and kill a single individual), we cannot locate a huge Boeing 777.

As someone on the block might say, “What up wid dat?”
