ISLAM IS THE MOTIVE
In Westgate, a Kenyan mall oriented toward expats, terrorists separated Muslims from non-Muslims before killing them. The Muslims were allowed to go free if they could recite a Muslim prayer....
“I don’t understand why you would shoot a five-year-old child,” one of the survivors said. But the five-year-old was not a Muslim.
Moments like these put the Clash of Civilizations into bloody context. This isn’t abstract politics. It’s not about economics, the environment or foreign policy. It’s about a worldview in which a five-year-old who can’t recite the Islamic confession of faith deserves to be killed.
At the Khaybar Massacre and the birth of the battle cry Allahu Akbar, Mohammed’s cousin asked why he meant to massacre the Jews. “Fight with them until they bear testimony to the fact that there is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his Messenger,” he replied.
That message in one form or another permeates Islam. It is the essence of the Jihad.
From my article on the Kenya attack; In the Name of Islam
Obama is dogma-ridden. Where Bush was a pragmatist trying to do what worked; he needs to follow a party line. Like the Chinese rocket scientist consulting Mao’s Little Red Book to decide what to do next; he needs the political guidance of the left to come to a decision on anything.
He can pursue any course as long as he starts with a progressive political program and then does whatever is necessary to put it into action. What he has great difficulty doing is beginning with a necessary action and working backward toward a political program.
Putin, the former KGB man, has to regard the interaction with an American leader whose Socialist inflexibility exceeds that of any Soviet leader with a certain amount of irony.

MARCHING IN THE JIHAD PARADE
The black flag is the war flag and the white flag is the state flag of the Caliphate.
The Al-Liwaa, the Caliphate state flag, and the Al-Liwaa, the war flag, are making a statement that the marchers are with the army of Mohammed and are at war with the non-Muslim Dar Al-Harb. The House of War. America.
These were the flags that were planted on American embassies on September 11 during the attacks. Now they are being carried openly in New York.

QUESTIONS ABOUT ARIZONA'S LITERACY RATE REMAIN
Mr. McCain said it’s a “cop-out” for critics of intervention in Syria to say “we don’t know who they are.”
“The point, I think, that you and others are missing … [is that] Syria is a moderate nation. Syria has the highest literacy rate of any nation in the Middle East. They are not going to submit to a jihadis or al Qaeda group governing them. They will not.”
Assuming you can even trust the literacy rate coming out of Syria, it’s 79 percent.
Iran’s literacy rate is 77 percent. Pakistan claims a literacy rate of 79%.

For about $200,000, Mrs. Clinton will offer pithy reflections and Mitch Albom-style lessons from her time as the nation’s top diplomat. (“Leadership is a team sport.” “You can’t win if you don’t show up.” “A whisper can be louder than a shout.”)
As useful as it is to inform audiences of bored people waiting to get out for some burgers that “Leadership is a team sport” and “You can’t win if you don’t show up” (Hillary did show up and didn’t win), it doesn’t sound like those are really the lessons that Hillary learned while letting four Americans die in Benghazi and handing a misspelled reset button to the Russkis.
How about informing the National Association of Realtors that the real lesson is “What difference does it make”. Sure you sold a home to a nice couple with three kids that’s located on an Indian burial ground/toxic waste dump. But really what difference does it make?
Or how about telling the American Society of Travel Agents that sure you may have suggested Libya as a great resort destination to that elderly couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and now there are pictures of their corpses being paraded around by America’s friendly Islamist allies… but really what difference does it make?

SAND TO SAND
The truth about the Arab Spring is that it never existed. The term was coined by Marc Lynch, a George Washington University professor, who had spent years urging engagement with Hamas and championing the role of the Muslim Brotherhood as a “firewall” against Al-Qaeda “radicalism.”
This Arab Spring had nothing to do with democracy or freedom. It was a scheme to split the Islamist ranks by turning over the Middle East to political Islamists. It was Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Green Belt strategy practiced on a grander scale than Iran.
The traditional Egyptian authorities, the old oligarchy, disliked the Muslim Brotherhood businessmen financed by Qatari cash and propagandized by its Al Jazeera megaphone, even more than Mubarak’s son. They knew that given time, Morsi would take their posts and business monopolies and hand them over to his supporters. The issue for them wasn’t Islam; it was power and money.
They knew that there was no Arab Spring. This was a regime change operation. Washington had decided that its old allies were no longer getting the job done and decided to trade them in for the Brotherhood. And they waited, giving the Brotherhood and Obama enough rope to hang themselves with.

ALL RACISM, ALL THE TIME
White people are racist. All white people all the time. If there’s any case ever of a white person not being racist, it’s probably because he’s racist.
Are you white? Do you pay attention to black murderers? It must be because you’re racist? Wait, you don’t pay attention to black murderers? It’s because you’re racist. Why aren’t you paying attention to black murderers? You racist.

MOHAMMED'S TIPS FOR A HAPPY MARRIAGE
Mariam explained that due to her young age she wasn’t capable of meeting the demands of married life.
“I was taken away from my small toys, taken out of my school forcibly and delivered to my husband whom I had only seen once, in front of the judge who officiated my marriage contract,” she added.
Mariam recently ran away from her husband’s house and returned to her father’s, after concluding that she could not bear to stay with her husband.
He dates other women under the excuse that his wife is young and thinks like a child, not living up to the intellect of a man of his age. Mariam’s husband also beats her whenever they have an argument.
“When I told my father about this, he told me, ‘This is normal and most young people are facing such a situation these days’”

That is going to have a huge impact on our trends.”

STONES AND CLUBS
Windmills have been around for over 2000 years. Wind turbines have been around since 1887. They’re not exactly a groundbreaking technology.
Nuclear power plants are a truly modern technology. They’re more modern than solar cells which date back to 1888. Funny how the eco-left seems obsessed with 1880 technology while neglecting the wonders of modern technology. They seem to be the ones in the stone age.
Around the time of World War I, American windmill makers were producing 100,000 farm windmills each year, mostly for water-pumping. By the 1930s, wind generators for electricity were common on farms, mostly in the United States where distribution systems had not yet been installed.
Commercially, solar power made its debut in the late 1800’s.
As production of the solar thermosyphon system prospered during the 1920’s, economics soon made the solar heat irrelevant. With the discovery of large amounts of natural gas in California, the cost to heat water plummeted and solar energy systems could no longer compete for business.

SPRINGING INTO DEMOCRACY
MP Talal al-Sharif pulled out an AK-47 rifle and shot at fellow MP Qusay Dmisa during a public session of Jordan’s Parliament, but did not manage to wound him.
This is the first time that guns have been fired in Jordan’s Parliament, although earlier this year MP Shadi al-Edwan attempted to pull out a pistol in the building during a bitter dispute over rising fuel prices.
Although Al-Demsi was the shooting target, the ad-hoc investigation committee found him guilty of inciting the action. The MPs said that Al-Sharif resorted to arms only after Al-Demsi slapped him while they were shaking hands in an effort to resolve their dispute.
Al-Sharif was so offended by the slap that he rushed to produce his machine gun from his car and started shooting.

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD FINALLY GETS ITS OWN BIKER GANG
Forget Mad Max and think Mad Mohammed.
Police have discovered pictures of Osama bin Laden at a Gold Coast home linked to a worrying new bikie gang called Soldiers of Islam, whose members include former Iraqi soldiers.
They call themselves MBM – the Muslim Brotherhood Movement – a gang of 600 men who boast they are the toughest and best young street fighters of Middle Eastern descent in Sydney.
But the objectives of MBM – its emblem features two crossed pistols and a hand grenade – and its leadership remain unclear to officers of both the Organised Crime and Gang Squad and Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad.

Forget pivoting to the economy or to Asia. For that matter forget gun control or Syria. Obama has finally found what he needed to be doing all along.
Forcing movie theaters to install technology for the blind.
If we’re going full Kurt Vonnegut here, let’s stop pussyfooting around Instead of trying to make the blind see, why not just blind everyone?
The Justice Department can mandate that all movies be blank and be based entirely on descriptions. Not spoken descriptions because the deaf can’t hear. But not written ones because the blind can’t see. Maybe they’ll be descriptions you have to imagine for yourself while looking at a blank screen. And paying 20 bucks for the privilege.

SEE NO EVIL
In 1992, Al Gore accused President George Bush of “a dangerous blindness to the murderous ambitions of a despot.” Eight years later, the Democratic Party platform proclaimed, “As President, Al Gore will not hesitate to use America’s military might against Iraq.”
Three years later, the Democratic Party, which had initiated the most aggressive military action against Iraq since the Gulf War and whose leading lights had repeatedly pledged to get tough on Saddam, had reinvented themselves as the anti-war party.
In 2002, Gore had told the Council on Foreign Relations that Iraq was “a virulent threat in a class by itself.” A year later he was talking that way about George W. Bush.
But did Iraq stop being a virulent threat in a class by itself because Al Gore changed his mind?

I checked with friends this morning to find out if I was alone in my sense that I had fallen asleep in the late 1990s and woken to a world in which I have no idea what schools even do anymore. My friend Stephanie advised me that her back to school night involved a discussion with a teacher about “interfacing with a child’s developmental space,” as well as a reference to “scaffolding text to text connections” in Ramona the Pest.
52 percent of the nation’s 3.3 million public school teachers have a masters’ degree or better.
While the number of MA’s in the classroom doesn’t help kids. It does increase the adoption of gibberish as overeducated teachers put their useless education to use making the system that much more confusing and impenetrable.
Public school teachers are no longer incompetent. They are just strategizing the educational synergies of multiple levels of achievement.

KEYNESIAN ECONOMICS TODAY, KEYNESIAN ECONOMICS TOMORROW, KEYNESIAN ECONOMICS FOREVER
Very very very white progressives, mostly the kind with advanced degrees in the humanities, or training in leftwing activist journalism or Keynesian economics, provide the intellectual cover for contemporary slavery, which takes the form not of whips and chains and fugitive slave acts, but rather is created with political calculation to form an economic plantation onto which pet minorities are forever herded, kept, fed, subsidized, and dumbed down, with no recourse to escaping failing schools, into permanent clients of the welfare state-Democrat Party vote exchange system.

THE NEW SOUTH AND THE NEW EUROMERICA
This was downtown Asheville in the heart of the freshly gentrified, cosmopolitan zone and instead of pick-ups rattling down the streets, Porsches prowled growling in the night outside the rock-climbing gym. This was an armed cultural hamlet in the New South, guarded by down-home decorating parlors ready to give your custom log-cabin that shabby chic lived-in look; where the sentries were hair salons called "The People" with mirrors in front of each station resembling nothing so much as the guillotines that "The People" of France once used so effectively in solving their aristocracy problem.
The difference here was that the new aristocracy of this region was busy admiring themselves in the mirrors of these guillotines with nary a Marat or Robespierre in sight. Instead, downtown Asheville -- or at least some small section at the top of the hills -- was relentlessly promoting our new secular religion of senseless and endless shopping opportunities.
from American Digest's Grace in the Blue Ridge Mountains
Edward Cline has written a piece commenting on my article about Islam as a Gang Religion. His comments about my writing are much too kind, but I did want to highlight this section and comment on it.
Islam has no philosophy that pursues the meaning of life. In it, speculation is prohibited. As such, it can only obsess with the meaning of death, without page-long Kantian paragraphs that explicate its death-worship.
Islam at bottom is imbecilic and it attracts recidivist imbeciles. Passive Muslims are those who religiously go to mosque and question nothing. Activist Muslims are the killer imbeciles who fly planes into skyscrapers, prey on non-Muslim women in Britain and Europe, and invade shopping malls, guns blazing.
Islam's "Golden Age" is based on Greek and Roman texts which invading Arabs might have discovered and preserved, but which they did not originate and which were subsequently disdained as un-Islamic.
But Islam, if it can be called a philosophy, is a philosophy of nihilism and death. Islam, as Greenfield describes it (and too few others critical of Islam), is a manual for conquest, submission and self-immolation cobbled together from other creeds, chiefly from Judaism and Christianity, while Allah was originally a pagan moon god. There is no system or structure to it. It is an arbitrary, unwholesome porridge of assertions, sayings, anecdotes, and dicta, a disparate potpourri of statements of dubious authorship whose central theme is "conquer them, convert them, or kill them." It appeals to psychopaths and sociopaths – the jihadists – and to the morally rootless and selfless rank-and-file Muslims, that "silent majority" of manqués who refuse to think
There is no real possibility of transcendence in such a structure. Islam, as a religion, is embedded in the materialism of its endless war.
It has nowhere to move forward. It replaces philosophical questions with real demons that it seeks to destroy. It resolves spiritual questions by shooting things. It offers its followers an easy solution through the duality of murder and death.
