What is shocking is NOT that Muslim terrorists once again tried to attack British vacationers in Tunisia…

x56zjc-viThe shocking part is that thousands of British tourists are still choosing to vacation in Tunisia at all. Despite this foiled attack, just two weeks after 38 tourists, including 30 British, were slaughtered at a Sousse, Tunisia beach resort by a Muslim terrorist, many of the holidaymakers flown home said “they felt the government had overreacted!”

UK Daily Mail (h/t Mike F)  Five Muslim terrorists on the verge of carrying out another terrorist attack on holidaymakers in Tunisia were yesterday shot dead. The five Muslim savages were killed by Tunisian special forces as thousands of Britons fled the North African country after a security alert.

Holiday companies started flying home 3,000 people yesterday after the Foreign Office warned that another ISIS attack was ‘highly likely’ as Muslim terrorists have been threatening.

Security forces tracked down eight ISIS suspects believed to be about to launch another bloodthirsty attack on tourists, with five of the militants killed near the town of El Ktar. The three others escaped and are still on the run, the Daily Mirror reported. 

An intelligence source told the newspaper: ‘Tunisian Special Forces acted swiftly as the evacuation got under way to stop them launching another attack.’

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond was forced to defend the decision, which he said was carefully considered and not a ‘knee-jerk reaction’. 

DUMB!

DUMB!

Some Britons on their way home said they felt safer in Tunisia than on home soil.  One young couple, with their 21-month-old son, told the Daily Mail: ‘We were saying to each other that there is probably more of a chance of a terror attack at Manchester airport than here now. 

‘There are Army trucks and police everywhere in Sousse. We have felt completely safe.’ (So why aren’t you vacationing in Syria or Iraq? Lots of Army trucks and police there, too, or so I’ve heard)

AND DUMBER!

AND DUMBER!

David Magliano, 52, managing director of membership at the Guardian newspaper, had his family holiday with pregnant wife Jo, 39, and sons Oliver, seven, and Hugo, two, cut short. ‘I do think it’s definitely giving in to terrorism,’ he said.

‘It’s like theatrical policing. It’s like having loads of police on the Underground. They are not likely to prevent anything. ‘It just gives that superficial sense of reassurance.’

Tracey Caborn, 49, from Castleford said: ‘I think they’ve acted irrationally. I’m very disappointed. I would have stayed. I never felt threatened at all. We had guards all round us. I think we’ve given in to the terrorists a bit. I’m mortified by it all. (So, I guess you would have been less “mortified” if you had been massacred?)

Now that knife crimes are soaring since Britain banned guns, police are urging people to turn in their knives

B-61MW2WoAAdVgcThe new Save a Life – Surrender Your Knife program is in full swing and police are telling us that they have joined forces with an already growing trend in the United Kingdom to ban ‘pointy’ knives. Police departments in Britain, urging people to give up their blades, including those from the kitchen, are literally advising people to NOT to become a victim by NOT defending themselves.

So, let me get this straight, “Save a Life – Surrender Your Knife” would have saved British soldier Lee Rigby’s life when he was savagely slaughtered in the streets of London by 2 Muslim terrorists with knives?

woolwich-attackers_2570495b

Counter Current News (h/t Henry P) Lancashire Police tell us that an “amnesty” program began at the end of August, and “more than 800 knives have been handed in across the county – including swords, machetes and commando knives.” “The amnesty was extended for a further week owing to its success,” Lancashire Police representatives explained.

The Lancashire department explains that their “officers have now given their backing to a national initiative designed to raise awareness of knife crime and encourage the surrender of dangerous weapons.”

In spite of the amnesty ending this week, police tell us that “people can continue to hand in any knife at any police station with a front counter as well being able to drop them into the designated bins.”

Those bins will be in cities all over the U.K. as this call for people to turn in pointed knives continues.  “We are keen to raise awareness of the devastating impact of knife crime and to reduce the number of families affected so we have decided to keep the knife bins indefinitely,” Detective Chief Inspector Steve Dowson said.

“While projects encouraging the surrender of knives are not a single solution to violence, they have an important role to play in inspiring communities to get behind education and preventative measures,” he added. “Such campaigns show a desire to address local concerns and Lancashire Police is keen to throw our weight behind them in support.

Researchers “consulted 10 top chefs from around the UK, and found such knives have little practical value in the kitchen. None of the chefs felt such knives were essential, since the point of a short blade was just as useful when a sharp end was needed.”

I bet ISIS just can’t wait to turn in their knives:

Again, we remind our readers outside of the UK, that this is not satire, just another example of the government claiming they are here to protect us from ourselves.

Similar “logic”  has been offered by Homeland Security in the U.S., advising would-be victims at schools and offices to hide or throw cans of soup at active shooters.

Don’t be a victim:

If you feel you are in immediate danger from knife crime there are a number of steps you can take to protect yourself:
• Move away from the situation towards a public place (shop, house, restaurant etc.) as quickly as possible.
• Make as much noise as you can.
• Instead of carrying a knife, carry a personal alarm.
• Don’t fight back.

• Bend over, put your head between your knees and kiss your ass good bye.

British tourists condemn “rudeness” of British Foreign Office in wake of Islamic terrorist attack at Tunisian resort hotel where they were vacationing

Hey, it was YOUR decision to vacation in a MUSLIM country. You deserve no special attention or consideration after Muslim terrorists attack you.

article-3140454-2A010BB400000578-671_964x467

The Guardian  Survivors of the Tunisian massacre have criticised the initial Foreign Office response to the tragedy, with one describing its approach as “rude and ignorant.”

Witnesses described being left for hours in the aftermath of the shootings without information, while others said consular officials were slow to reach the scene of the slaughter, claiming that journalists had arrived at the site before them.

Conor Fulford, from Tamworth, Staffordshire, said that in the chaos of the shootings, as he tried to find news of his mother, Sue Davey, the Foreign Office was so dismissive it left him dumbfounded.

Fulford, who was staying in one of the hotels in Sousse where the attack took place, said: “They just said if they find any leads then they will let us know. I’m at a loss for words at the minute. It just comes across as rude and ignorant. It’s unbelievable.

Other travelers  criticised tour operator Thomson’s response to the tragedy, saying that its office, close to the main entrance to the hotel Riu Imperial Maharba, one of the hotels involved in the shootings, had its door open but was deserted.

Witnesses also described survivors sitting in groups at tables in the atrium, some crying and asking people about the fate of missing loved ones. On the terrace, tourists – some still in their swimsuits – sat around being served drinks by equally distressed staff. 

Attack on hotel in eastern city of Sousse

We’ve not seen anyone from Thomson: I don’t know where they are,” said one Scottish tourist, who asked not to be named, on Friday night. As journalists arrived, some asked if there was any information on what they should do, or whether they could leave the hotel.

Survivor Glenn Whitehead had been concerned about security in Tunisia following the massacre of tourists in March at the Bardot museum in Tunis, so he contacted Thomson on the eve of his holiday and claims he was assured that security was fine.

Whitehead’s concerns meant that he and and his wife Anita decided not to leave the hotel to visit Sousse town during their holiday, believing the hotel was well guarded. Anita said: “We haven’t seen anyone from Thomson. We’ve not been told anything.”

She said they had stayed at the hotel the year before, and were comforted then by the sight of daily patrols by police on horseback along the beach. Yet this year, she said, she saw the patrol only once, shortly before the gunman struck.

Despite being the premier location in Sousse, the Marhaba hotel had no armed police or security staff, effectively allowing the gunman to roam the beach and the hotel shooting people at will. Security forces took more than half an hour to arrive.

One Thomson official at the hotel, who did not want to be named, said: “The terrorists knew exactly what they were doing. This is the top hotel here. They knew the effect it would have.”

WEEKLY STANDARD article will ‘condemn’ Israel for excessive civilian warnings in Gaza

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) went too far beyond what is required to avoid civilian casualties in asymmetric conflict during last summer’s Gaza war,” some international legal experts say, according to an Israel National News report.

Screen-Shot-2014-07-14-at-11.48.01-PM

IPT  The criticism comes in an article to be published Monday by the Weekly Standard. In it, Vanderbilt University adjunct law Professor Willy Stern reviews Israel’s actions after spending two weeks with the IDF’s international law department. The IDF made thousands of phone calls, dropped leaflets, and broadcast TV and radio messages urging Gaza civilians to flee an area before Israel would strike structures used by Hamas for military purposes.

“It was abundantly clear that IDF commanders had gone beyond any mandates that international law requires to avoid civilian casualties,” Stern writes. Its foes in Hamas went the opposite direction, urging terrorists to stay close to civilians, a manual that Israeli troops found in a Gaza neighborhood shows.

“Hamas’s playbook calls for helping to kill its own civilians, while the IDF’s playbook goes to extreme​ – ​some say inappropriate​ – ​lengths to protect innocent life in war,” Stern’s article will say.

Other legal experts featured in the upcoming Weekly Standard article expressed concern that Israel’s exhaustive warnings create “an unreasonable precedent” for other democracies fighting terrorist groups.

“The IDF’s warnings certainly go beyond what the law requires, but they also sometimes go beyond what would be operational good sense elsewhere,” said Michael Schmitt, director of the Stockton Center for the Study for International Law at the U.S. Naval War College.

At the G-7 Summit, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moonbat blames ISIS, Boko Haram, and ‘Islamophobia’ as the root causes for ‘violent extremism,’ better known as Islamic terrorism

Moonbat’s ‘politically correct’ comments have been edited in red for clarity and accuracy: Moonbat: “I am increasingly concerned by the spread of violent extremist Islamic terrorist groups and the malicious and hateful Islamic ideologies that are fueling Muslim violence and terrorism around the world.”

"AND I AM AN IDIOT"

“…I AM AN IDIOT”

UN.org  From the deadly ideologies of ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq & Syria] and Boko Haram, to ‘Islamophobia,’ (the result of  intolerance and hatred inherent in Islam) this wave of intolerance and hatred is a serious threat to peace, development, human rights and humanitarian action.  The two most pressing issues we need to address are the underlying contexts and drivers of violent (Islamic) ideologies and the main threats that have emerged, such as foreign Muslim terrorist fighters.

During the last 15 years, most counter-Islamic terrorism efforts have been reactive, focusing largely on military and security measures.  This approach has often generated negative unintended consequences, further radicalizing disenfranchised Muslim communities. 

CA1-uzVW8AAObF8.jpg-large

Later this year, I will present a United Nations Global Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism Islamic terrorism to the General Assembly.  The Plan will propose ways to address the causes of violent extremism Islamic terrorism, including intolerance (by Muslims), Muslim governance failures and political, economic and social marginalization.

Addressing violent extremism Islamic terrorism demands a proactive, “all-of-society” approach that includes minorities, women and youth as partners.  The targeting of Muslim and non-Muslim women bears special mention.  With every attack and encroachment by violent extremists Muslim terrorists, the first targets are the rights of women and girls.

Governments also have a particular responsibility to address the aspirations of youth, especially in Muslim countries where youth represent an increasing majority of the population.  Youth are the group most prone to Islamic radicalization and violent extremism Islamic terrorism. Most  foreign terrorist fighters are young Muslim males aged between 15 and 35.  But young people are also part of the solution to preventing violent extremism Islamic terrorism.  We all need to do a better job of engaging them.  Networks of young peacebuilders and activists confronting violent extremism Islamic terrorism will do more than any government programme.

putin-fight-the-terrorists

Violent extremism Islamic terrorism is a fundamental threat to all countries and people.  The international community’s response will be effective only through coordinated, multilateral action.  Such cooperation is especially important in addressing the financing of Islamic terrorism, the vulnerability of so many borders, and the foreign Muslim terrorist fighter phenomenon.

no-islam

We must also take special care not to exacerbate the problem. Undoubtedly, security measures and even military action may be necessary to address the real threats posed by violent extremists Muslim terrorists.  But when counter-Islamic terrorism efforts ignore the rule of law and violate fundamental Muslim rights — which they do far too often — they not only betray the values they seek to uphold, but can also end up further fueling more violent extremism Islamic terrorism.

b07627d212b537f6daa0c371e67a111f

In many places, certain Muslim groups of society, or entire Muslim communities, are properly targeted by security forces — sometimes brutally and disproportionately.  The only real effect of such actions is to increase still further the levels of Muslim bitterness, Islamic radicalism and extremism within the target communities. 

Missiles may kill Muslim terrorists.  But I am convinced that good governance overwhelming military force by the West is what will kill Islamic terrorism.

Egyptian-American horse, American Pharaoh, won the Triple Crown because of Obama’s speech in Cairo?

One would think so, judging by Dan Pfeiffer of CNN’s tweet. Pheiffer is a former advisor to Barack Hussein Obama and was just hired to be a contributor to one of Obama’s favorite media outlets – CNN.

What you probably don’t know about Ahmed Zayat, the Egyptian-American ‘Muslim’ owner of the 2015 Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah

635691216415605147-USP-HORSE-RACING-BELMONT-STAKES-SCENES-73555958Ahmed Zayat made his fortune selling beer, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, in Egypt. He is a gradate of Yeshiva University in New York City, lives in New Jersey now, keeps Kosher, and is a member of an Orthodox Jewish synagogue in Teaneck.

1tOdaj.AuSt.36

NEW YORK TIMES  In 2006, Mr. Zayat introduced himself as a major player in horse racing with the $4.6 million purchase of a colt at the blue chip Keeneland September Sale. His passion was seeded at a riding club when he was a young boy in an upscale suburb of Cairo.

PharoahInsideStall

The Zayats were a prominent family in Egypt — his grandfather Ahmed Hassan al-Zayat was a leading intellectual who founded Al-Risala, a well-known literary magazine. His father, Alaa, was a physician who taught medicine in Cairo and had been the personal doctor to President Anwar el-Sadat.

Mr. Zayat’s horse trading was financed by his proceeds from the sale of Al Ahram Beverages Company, the formerly state-held beer company that he had privatized, to Heineken for $280 million, or four times what he paid for it in 1997.

First, Mr. Zayat had to take the idea of selling beer to Muslims to international investors in an effort to raise $70 million. It was not even good beer — its flagship brand varied from one batch to another, and a common joke was that it could power heavy machinery if there was no diesel fuel available.

Still, Mr. Zayat moved the company’s factory to solve a land dispute, and raised money for his acquisition by selling shares of the company on the London Stock Exchange rather than borrowing from banks. He also pioneered a line of nonalcoholic beers that appealed to the conservative Muslim country.

It was this sort of forward thinking that led Mr. Zayat to name his $4.6 million colt Maimonides, after Moses Maimonides, considered to be among the greatest Jewish philosophers. As a Muslim, he said at the time: “I wanted to say something with the tool I had, which was a horse. I wanted it to be pro-peace, and about loving your neighbor.”

It also highlighted another complicated facet of his life. Publicly, Mr. Zayat alternately identifies as Muslim and Jewish. In fact, Mr. Zayat, who graduated from Yeshiva University, has given amply to Jewish causes. He lives with his wife and four children in a largely modern Orthodox neighborhood of Tudor and Victorian houses known as West Englewood in Teaneck, N.J.

They keep kosher, arranging menus in advance at racetracks and, if they cannot locate a hotel close by, they stay in an R.V. and walk to the track, as they did at the Preakness Stakes, to avoid driving on the Sabbath.

“It’s a very wonderful, kind family — very active, very generous,” said Steven Pruzansky, his rabbi at Congregation Bnai Yeshurun, one of more than a dozen Orthodox synagogues in Teaneck.

When asked for clarification about his religion, Mr. Zayat said: “Why is it relevant, and why does it matter? It’s personal.”

FIGURES! New York City anti-censorship event gets censored for offending MOOOSELUMS!

A New York City arts center has canceled a planned event intended to protest censorship after one of the scheduled plays, “Mohammed Gets A Boner,” was deemed too offensive to Muslims.

Mohammed_and_Aisha

Daily Caller  “Playwrights for a Cause” was scheduled to be held at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture on June 14, and was supposed to feature four short plays about censorship in art. In addition, revenue from the event was supposed to benefit the National Coalition Against Censorship.

Instead, the entire event has been canceled, thanks to one of the four entries. “‘Mohammed’ Gets A Boner” is a one-man performance by screenwriter Neil LaBute written specifically for the event. Its description makes it clear the play is intended to be somewhat shocking:

“The prophet “Mohammed” stands on a barren stage, recalling the first time he made love to a white woman. Is this reality or a theatrical convention? Where do the lines between ‘satire’ and ‘censorship’ intersect or is nothing sacred when it comes to the theater?”

1374114845584-vi

Not only is the play being canceled, but some media entities have been afraid to even name the play. The New York Times, which first reported the story, calls it “a new play … with a title making reference to ‘Mohammed.’”

LaBute has said that the Sheen Center was entirely within its rights to cancel the performance, but in a statement he also pointed out the irony of censoring an event intended to be about censorship.

“This event was meant to shine another light on censorship and it was unexpected to have the plug pulled, quite literally, by an organization that touts the phrase ‘for thought and culture’ on their very Web site,” LaBute said. “Both in life and in the arts, this is not a time to hide or be afraid; recent events have begged for artists and citizens to stand and be counted.”
