Egypt’s President al-Sisi makes historic visit to Coptic Christian church in Cairo

President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, wildly popular for his ousting of the Muslim Brotherhood government of Mohamed Morsi, paid a visit to a Coptic Christmas mass making him the first Egyptian leader to do so since President Nasser.

Needless to say, Coptic Christians in Egypt overwhelmingly support their new president.

Left Wing Rag ‘Salon’ names Bill Maher ‘Top Villain of 2014′ because of his very correct (albeit politically incorrect) statements about Islam

Too bad most on the Left feel an obligation to defend the people who most want to kill them – Muslims.

Salon  Bill Maher has forged his reputation on an outspoken brand of progressive views that blurs the lines between comedy and outright prejudice. He speaks often about freedom of speech (which obviously is only the right of people who agree with left wing views and dare not challenge them, especially if you are a leftist yourself)

And that’s why he’s featured as a villain at Salon.

The controversy: This October, Maher had Ben Affleck on his show to discuss the release of “Gone Girl.” Instead, Maher’s panel, which also featured Sam Harris, Nicholas Kristof and Michael Steele, devolved into a yelling match. Referencing the emergence of ISIS, Maher claimed that Islam is “the only religion that acts like the mafia, that will fucking kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture or write the wrong book.” Affleck denounced his comments as “gross and racist.”

The response: Muslim journalist Rula Jebreal later spoke out on the show. “When you talk about Islam in a certain way, I have to tell you, it’s offensive sometimes,” she said. “And some people feel threatened.” She said that it seems Maher thinks all Muslims are “jihadists.” Self-described Religion scholar and writer Reza Aslan appeared on CNN to respond to Maher’s remarks, which he said were, “frankly, stupid.”

Aslan continued: “Islam doesn’t promote violence or peace. Islam is just a religion, and like every religion in the world, it depends on what you bring to it. If you’re a violent person, your Islam, your Judaism, your Christianity, your Hinduism, is going to be violent.”

Maher was scheduled to speak at University of California at Berkeley’s winter commencement ceremony. In response to his remarks, students started a petition that gained nearly 6,000 signatures. Maher responded to the students on “Real Time,” saying, “My reputation isn’t on the line. Yours is.” He condemned the move as one stifling free speech. He eventually gave the speech.

Where is he now? Same place. He is doing just fine. It might be too much to wish that he’d learn from his mistakes. But maybe this time around he’ll pick the right New Year’s resolution: “Be less of a bigot.”

Nearly 6 years later, Obama’s Cairo speech sounds more absurd than ever

Nearly, 6 years later, everything Obama heralded about Islam’s contributions* to the world and wonderful relations with America have blown up in his face. If he gave the same speech today, he would be be laughed off the stage, especially, now, considering that most Egyptians hate Obama more than Americans do.

*Egyptians DID contribute a lot to Western civilization, however, that was well before Islam took over

JACK BAUER (’24’) LIVES! Most Americans think torture of terrorists is justified…

But think release of the ‘Torture Report’ is harmful to American interests. This week saw the release of a long-awaited Senate report detailing the post-9/11 CIA detention and interrogation program, including the use of torture.

RTR1VOW6

YouGov  When Americans are asked about suspected terrorists “who may know details about future attacks against the U.S.”, only 24% are prepared to say the use of torture is “never” justified. Nearly as many, 20%, say the use of torture is “always” justified, while the remainder say it’s either “sometimes” (28%) or only “rarely” (18%) justified – a total of 66% who are unwilling to rule out torture completely. There has been little change in views from April, before the release of the report, when 22% said torture was never justified

Like so many other issues, views about torture are highly polarized politically. 38% of Democrats say torture is never justified, compared to just 11% of Republicans. Republicans are also more open to all of the specified tactics than their Democratic counterparts. In fact, while Democrats tend to say all of the nine tactics are unacceptable, Republicans tend to say all of them are acceptable with one exception – people of all political persuasions reject the use of rectal feeding.

TorturePartisan2

Ask people specifically about interrogation tactics detailed in the report, and a more complicated picture emerges. In fact only one tactic – depriving a detainee of sleep – is deemed acceptable by the majority of the public. More people reject than accept seven of the eight other tactics, including waterboarding, which is seen as unacceptable by 45-35%. By far the least popular tactic was feeding a detainee by pumping a food into his anus, a practice the report calls “rectal feeding”, which three-quarters of Americans say is unacceptable. (BNI approves of all torture of terrorists…including torturing to death!)

Torture US

People are divided along these same political lines on several other aspects of the debate over the torture, some addressed by the report. 54% Democrats believe the information gained through torture is unreliable; 56% of Republicans think it’s reliable. 58% of Americans think it is possible to fight terrorism without using torture, while 48% think it’s impossible.

BILL MAHER: “Comparing my criticism of Islam to Nazi propaganda is ‘beyond stupid’”

In an interview with Vanity Fair, HBO’s Real Time host Bill Maher restated some of his criticisms of Islam while responding to a critic who said his rhetoric was similar to what was said about Jews in the 30′s and 40′s, calling the assertion, “beyond stupid.”

102814_maher

Raw Story  (h/t Robert F) Speaking with Sally Kohn, Maher discussed the controversy over his upcoming speech, scheduled to be delivered at University of California Berkeley on Dec. 20, which has raised the ire of students who created a petition to disinvite him.

The comedian has been under fire for comments he made during a contentious episode of Real Time in early October when Maher told a panel, including actor Ben Affleck, Islam is “the only religion that acts like the mafia, that will f*cking kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture, or write the wrong book.”

2014-10-28T22-42-26-033Z-1280x720.video_512x342

Calling the petition a “bullshit thing,” Maher addressed the students at the university — currently celebrating the anniversary of Free Speech Movement protests on campus 50 years ago — saying liberalism shouldn’t “squelch free speech.”

“You know, I’m a liberal. My message is: be a liberal. Find out what liberalism means and join up. Liberalism certainly should not mean squelching free speech, ” he said. “And by the way, that petition, it was online, so anybody could sign it. You didn’t have to go to Berkeley to sign it, you could sign it more than one time. . . . So it was kind of a bullshit thing to begin with.”

Defending his comments, attacking Islam for its treatment of women and gays and calling for  the religion to “join the 21st century,” Maher responded to religious scholar Karen Armstrong who compared his words to the rhetoric once used against Jews.

In an interview with Salon, Armstrong described Maher’s comments as “the sort of talk that led to the concentrations camps in Europe.” Asked by Kohn, “That’s gotta sting, especially coming from her,” Maher dismissed the suggestion.

“It doesn’t sting because it’s beyond stupid. Jews weren’t oppressing anybody. There weren’t 5,000 militant Jewish groups,” Maher explained. “They didn’t do a study of treatment of women around the world and find that the Jews were at the bottom of it. There weren’t 10 Jewish countries in the world that were putting gay people to death just for being gay. It’s idiotic.”

Maher stated that his rhetoric hasn’t changed and that he has been attacking Islam for years (See links below),  while getting in a dig at Affleck.

“No. I’ve been saying the same thing for years and years and years. What changed was Ben Affleck. What changed is a very shallow country, and so when an A-list movie star gets involved in the debate, everyone cares. If it had been Kim Kardashian it would have been even bigger,” he said.

Defending free speech, Maher added, “And I would just say to all liberals: we should own the First Amendment the way the right-wingers own the Second.”

Inexpensive but extremely valuable Christmas/Chanukah gift

Wondering what presents to buy for Christmas? Well how about spreading around a little Counter Jihad cheer. If you have been wondering how to convince your friends and relatives of the dangers of militant Islam, this is an easy way to solve that problem. 

book cover jpeg for kindle

The Story of Mohammed is a short book with a big punch. By explaining the horrors and the dangers of Islam through Mohammed’s awful deeds, it turns the subject from a dull text book into an action packed adventure story. 

By using this tactic, it also avoids showing hatred towards Muslims, instead showing them as victims of an evil cult. Because of this, it circumvents the usual accusations of hatred and bias. This makes it a book which is safe to give to your boss, or to your daughters head teacher.

Despite this, once they have finished the book, it is glaringly obvious that Islam poses a huge threat to our way of life and liberty. Written in clear and simple language and an easy style, this book keeps people engrossed right to the final chapter. 

You can read this book yourself for free HERE or check out some Amazon reviews HERE.

In the USA, Amazon sells this book for just USD $6.55 and in the UK is only GBP3.92. With free shipping if you buy a few copies, this is a timely and cheap present which is guaranteed to get the word out this Christmas. 

DON’T PUT THIS OFF BECAUSE TOMORROW NEVER COMES!
