Even the BBC is exposing the fake imagery being put out on social media by the Palestinians against Israel

Over the past week, the hashtag #GazaUnderAttack has been used hundreds of thousands of times, often to distribute pictures claiming to show the effects of Israeli airstrikes on Gaza. However, a #BBC trending investigation has found that most #GazaUnderAttack images are not from the latest conflict and often not even from Gaza. Some date as far back as 2009 and others are from conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

What you’re not hearing about the Israeli police beating of a Palestinian-American teenager

The  so-called ‘victim,’ Tariq Abu Khdeir, was part of a Palestinian gang of six who were throwing Molotov cocktails, trying to attack police with knives, and hurling rocks with a slingshot at police. Khdeir goes to school in Florida. The edited footage was released by the Palestinians and widely reported around the world.

According to Daniel Danon, Israeli Deputy Defense Minister: “When you look at the pictures it doesn’t look so good. But, when you look at the pictures before you had six teenagers being involved with knives, Molotovs cocktails attacking the police officers. And when they were able to arrest them they resisted the arrest. . It will be fully investigated but sometimes when somebody is attacking a police officer with a knife the use of force, not just in the US, but in Israel is necessary. So you have to look at the complete picture.”

SOUTH TEXANS: VOTE for Army veteran Larry Smith, the ‘anti-sharia’ congressional candidate

larry-smith-rr Larry Smith, Army veteran and former Drug Enforcement Administration agent running for congress in Smith County, Texas, has a unique plank in his platform: He has pledged to protect this deep-red border county from the creeping menace of Islamic religious law, or Sharia.

Larry Smith Website

Caller  South Texas congressional candidate Larry Smith forged his views on Iraq as an Army captain training Iraqi security forces and fighting insurgents. Wounded in the streets of Bagdad, the Republican challenger in the 34th District race said he doesn’t suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Neither is he plagued by guilt about his experiences in a 14-month tour in Iraq beginning in 2004.

“It was rough, and they really made it easy to kill them,” Smith said during a June visit to Washington. “I really dislike who these people are.” Smith was proud to help get rid of reviled dictator Saddam Hussein, but Iraq, now in crisis, isn’t ready for democracy and will be stable only as a dictatorship, Smith said. He didn’t come away from Iraq with a high opinion of Arab culture.

Repelled and mystified at times while deployed with the Second Brigade, First Cavalry Division, Smith and his fellow soldiers had a saying, “This is your brain on Arab.” It meant they couldn’t understand something like an elderly man riding a donkey while an elderly woman walked behind lugging a bag of rice, a herd of goats eating garbage in the streets in lieu of trash pickup, or an 8-year-old girl who exposed herself and made lewd faces at Smith.

He asked his Iraqi interpreter if the girl’s father was prostituting her. The interpreter explained daughters are seen as financial burdens until they are 12 and husband material — and yes, the girl’s father was prostituting her, Smith said. He said he was repelled by the Muslim religion and religious law.

“They talk about Islam being a religion of peace and understanding. It absolutely is not. It is horrendously oppressive to children and women,” Smith said. “This is a war on women.” A spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations called Smith’s views “bigoted and extremist.”

WND Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch, says:

Muslims living in America should not be bound by U.S. law, according to a leader of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, who delivered the controversial message to a crowd at a Muslim rally in Austin, Texas. “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” said Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch.

According to the event website, Muslims from around Texas went to the Texas capitol to “promote civic and political activism throughout the wider Muslim community.” The organizers said one major issue discussed “was the recent House and Senate bill proposals involving the implementation of ‘anti-Shariah’ legislation, where the First Amendment rights and freedoms of Muslims would ultimately be hindered.” Critics argue Shariah prohibits other faiths from free exercise of religion when enforced, giving freedom only to Muslims.

Carroll’s statement was similar to a statement allegedly made by CAIR co-founder and former chairman Omar M. Ahmad. He was paraphrased by a reporter saying, Carroll is on record defending Hamas, classified by the U.S. as a terrorist group.

“To make sweeping condemnations of the Arab culture or the faith of one-fifth of the world’s population is just something beyond the pale,” said Ibrahim ‘Dougie’  Hooper, of CAIR, a Muslim advocacy organization. “It’s really unworthy of any public official or candidate.” Time and again, CAIR has called on Republican leaders to repudiate Islamophobia in their ranks, Hooper said.

Smith hopes to unseat U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Brownsville, and the challenger’s military background is reflected on his campaign website, which says: “When we were overseas, we risked our lives for the sake of American families. How much different is politics from combat?” Medically retired from the Army, Smith was awarded a Purple Heart.

When he sees news about the onslaught on the Shiite-dominated government’s forces from Sunni rebels calling themselves the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Smith might spot the uniforms he picked out for the Iraqi security forces. Smith was reserving judgment on why these forces, far outnumbering ISIL, hadn’t fought harder to fend off the terrorists. He didn’t do the same for lawmakers’ responsibility.

Smith said “rather than waiting for it to fall apart to do something about it,” lawmakers should have taken preventive action. He said he believes the Obama administration failed in Iraq and, through neglect, tossed away sacrifices made by veterans.

In response to ISIL, President Barack Obama has authorized fewer than 1,000 troops to protect the U.S. Embassy, act as military advisers to government forces and perform other duties in Iraq not including combat, although they can defend themselves.

AUSTRALIAN Radio Host, Michael Smith, kicked off the air for calling the Prophet Mohammed a “paedophile”

Why I won’t be on 2GB Radio on Monday

In April this year 2GB booked me to present Chris Smith’s afternoons program for the 3 weeks starting Monday 30 June. At 7.15 last night 2GB’s Program Director David Kidd phoned me and said, “We won’t be needing you, you can’t call a Deity a paedophile.”

David told me he was referring to the interview Ben Fordham conducted with me on Thursday this past week.   Just for the record, Muhammad was a man, a prophet -  but not a Deity.  

I’ve thought about what I said in answer to Ben’s question.   I think it’s wrong for a man in his 50s to have sex with a 9 year old child.   It is wrong, it’s a crime and it should be called out for what it is. I know Ray Hadley disagrees with me – perhaps Ray could let us know what part of a grown man having sex with a 9 year old girl is right?

SBS  Michael Smith is unashamedly ‘old school’. With a family history in the military and a background in law enforcement, he considers himself a defender of Australia’s traditional values.  He’s as “mad as hell” that Australian politicians are failing in what he sees as their fundamental duty – the defence of our national borders. He believes in “keeping Australia the way it is” and fears that by “importing tribes” to who can’t assimilate we run the risk of homegrown terrorism.

Five years ago, he was ‘discovered’ by Fairfax media executives, delivering an address at a Telstra function and offered the opportunity of a late career change – as afternoon shock jock on Brisbane’s 4BC radio station.  Though he’d worked and lived in Indonesia – the largest Muslim country in the world – it was his on air attacks on an Islamic tradition that brought Smith to national attention. He railed against the wearing of the burqa. “If I was still a copper, I would have considered charging them with offensive behaviour”.

When he moved to 2UE in Sydney, his on-air views were just as inflammatory. Calling the prophet Mohammad a pedophile saw Smith twice investigated for inciting hatred against Muslims. Smith remains unrepentant, saying: “I really do think that Islamism is the greatest threat to the world today”.

U.S. Intelligence Community warned the Obama Regime about the growing threat from ISIS since early January 2014…refuting claims that regime officials were caught off guard by the ISIS insurgency in Iraq

Barack Obama

In an interview with Fox News, Secretary of State John Kerry said “nobody expected” Iraqi security forces to be decisively driven out by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, as they were earlier this month in Mosul. But in a briefing with reporters, the senior intelligence official said the intelligence community had warned about the ISIS threat.

FOX News  “During the past year, the intelligence community has provided strategic warning of Iraq’s deteriorating security situation,” the official said. “We routinely highlighted (ISIS’) growing threat in Iraq, the increasing difficulties Iraq’s security forced faced in combating (ISIS), and the political strains that were contributing to Iraq’s declining stability.”

Asked who failed to act, the official did not explain.

MILITANTS attacked one of Iraq’s largest air bases and seized control of several small oilfields on Wednesday. In northern Iraq the Sunni militants extended a two-week advance that has been led by the hardline Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) but also includes an amalgam of other Sunni groups angered by Maliki’s rule.

Militants overran the Ajeel oil site, 30 km (19 miles) east of Tikrit, which contains at least three small oilfields that produce 28,000 barrels per day, an engineer working at the field said.  The engineer said local tribes had taken responsibility for protecting the fields after police withdrew but that they also left after the nearby town of al-Alam was seized by militants.

Insurgents have surrounded a massive air base nearby, which was known as “Camp Anaconda” under U.S. occupation, and struck it with mortars. Eyewitnesses said the air base had been surrounded on three sides.

In recent days, Baghdad’s grip on the Western frontier with Syria and Jordan has also been challenged. One post on the Syrian border has fallen to Sunni militants and another has been taken over by the Kurds. A third crossing with Syria and the only crossing with Jordan are contested, with anti-government fighters and Baghdad both claiming control.

For ISIS, capturing the frontier is a step towards the goal of erasing the modern border altogether and building a caliphate across swathes of Iraq and Syria.

Offering a grave warning about the current strength of the group — which is a State Department-designated terror organization — the official also said that barring a major counteroffensive, the intelligence community assesses that ISIS is “well-positioned to keep the territory it has gained.”The official said the ISIS “strike force” now has between 3,000 and 5,000 members.

Further, the official said ISIS, as a former Al Qaeda affiliate, has the “aspiration and intent” to target U.S. interests. Asked if Americans have joined, the intelligence official said it “stands to reason that Americans have joined.”

The information from the intelligence community adds to the picture of what is known about the ISIS threat, and what might have been known in the weeks and months before its militants seized Mosul and other northern cities and towns.

Kerry, speaking with Fox News on Tuesday in the middle of a multi-country swing through the Middle East and Europe as he tries to calm the sectarian crisis in Iraq, pushed back on the notion that more could have been done from a Washington perspective to prevent the takeovers. Pressed on whether the fall of Mosul and other cities to Sunni militants marks an intelligence failure, Kerry said nobody could have predicted Iraqi security forces would have deserted.

“We don’t have people embedded in those units, and so obviously nobody knew that. I think everybody in Iraq was surprised. People were surprised everywhere,” he said.

When asked what the U.S. did to shore up Mosul, after seeing other Iraqi cities fall earlier this year, Kerry added: “In the end, the Iraqis are responsible for their defense, and nobody expected wholesale desertion and wholesale betrayal, in a sense, by some leaders who literally either signed up with the guys who came in or walked away from their posts and put on their civilian clothes.

“No, nobody expected that.”

B2AD7118486819ED5B4E35747D1

But aside from the apparent warnings from the U.S. intelligence community, reports in The Telegraph and Daily Beast claim that Kurdish sources did warn American and British officials that ISIS was gaining strength and ready to advance, but it “fell on deaf ears.”

Does anyone know if this man is still in possession of his head?

In Arabic, he mocks Muslims for their insistence on boycotts of Western and Jewish products and innovations, stating that if Muslims were to boycott everything made by non-Muslims, they would be “naked and hungry, living in tents, and riding camels as they did in the age of Mohammed.”

What really must stick in their craw is his comparison of the “achievements” of 1.4 billion Muslims verses those of 12 million Jews.

HATRED: It permeates the quran

Canadian commentator Michael Coren surely will be dubbed an “Islamophobe” for quoting the quran which is overflowing with hatred for the unbelievers.

Sadly, Coren insists on adding that most Muslims are peace loving people.
