Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

“NEVER AGAIN!” was the cry after the National Socialist Workers Party was done with its attempt at a final solution to the “Jewish Question” in WWII. The West as a whole vowed to never stand by and allow a new pogrom to reignite. Today the liberals are not standing by. They are actively taking part and assisting the likes of Hezbollah and mad Mullahs of Iran.

Obama and his cabal have treated Israel with contempt, and grovelled before the dictators of the world. A nation has the right to guard its borders. A nation has the right to protect its people. Obama condemned Israel for doing this. Last year over 100 rocket attacks were inflicted upon Israel. These attacks emanated from Gaza and the West bank. These attacks were conducted by Hamas. The Turkish ambassador to the US has said that, “Hamas must be part of the final solution to the Israeli conflict.” This thug is still on our soil?

Imagine if India were to attack Chinese cities on 100 separate occasions. What do you imagine the response would be? Imagine if Buffalo NY, Flint MI, Boston MA, and Seattle WA were subject to weekly rocket fire from Canada. Would our media advocate not only restraint but concession in light of such bombardment? I instead would imagine that such action would be viewed as a casus belli.

Many in the West are echoing the propaganda of the Junta’s of the Middle East. The dictators that rule from Morrocco to Pakistan echo the puerile antisemitism that is common fare of Wahhabi dominated mosques. On college campuses today it is cool to be an anti-Semite. MSM today is slanted towards this warped view. If a second holocaust is to be avoided, good people must stand up in the public square and cry NEVER AGAIN.

UPDATE: Former Clinton spokesman, Joe Lockhart, said: “I hope we are strong enough as a country to sustain voices that are wrong, voices that offend, even voices that incite.” Cry me a river. This yahoo support’s shutting down the voices of descent with the ‘fairness doctrine.’ Great 1984-ism that bill.

When I see what I’ve seen around this country and the inane reasons people give for supporting Obama, I have to believe that it is what Laura Hollis said on townhall.com.

Really interesting read … as long as you don’t mind a rare expletive. David Berlinski is a rather interesting character. For those that want to say religion is the only reason for arguing intelligent design, he must be their worst nightmare. Irreligious would be a good description — though capable of quoting from at least four of the major world religions, he seems to not care for any of them himself. The Devil’s Delousion, Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions has some of the best jokes on science I’ve seen. It points out the religiously (i.e., unproven and unprovable) held views of much of modern scientists.

Berlinski is an agnostic … a “secular Jew” … for whom religion did not take hold. But he certainly knows that atheists are just as dogmatic in their doctrine about the lack of a god as any religous lead is about the existence of God.  While sometimes the book is rather dense (what would you expect from someone that has his phD in philosophy and was a post-doctoral fellow in mathematics and molecular biology) it is mostly very approachable, and spectacularly funny.

This is something I would not recommend to anyone that would be truly offended by 3 or 4 off color words in a book, but it is something that I find absolutely compelling in argumentation that flies in the face of modern physics and biology. It is rare indeed to find someone that both understands the mathematics and science and is willing to challenge the “party line”. It is especially refreshing to see this from someone that is saying all this from an agnostic position and so proving intelligent design is not just a religious position.

First, I believe there are those that are peaceful Muslims. But just as Christians have sects that fight each other, Muslims have violent types as well.

Yesterday, a video was released that depicted violence juxtaposed with text of the Qur’an and quotations of spectacularly non-peaceful Muslims. It was placed on LiveLeak.com, but after they received many death threats, the video was pulled off. The removal statement byLiveLeak is rather chilling. What is sad, is that those that find it offensive I can understand, but those that threaten to kill people because of the offense only prove that the video is at least partially true.  Those Muslims that are reasonable, that find the video offensive yet share no values with people that perform the acts perpetrated on the video should find at least as much offense at those that have committed these acts in the name of their religion as those that point out these criminals.

If the Muslim world had as many protests with people rioting in the streets over the despicable actions of those that desecrate  the idea of Islam being a religion of peace then this kind of video would hold no traction with anyone. That there were fewer Muslims demonstrating against the criminals that flew airplanes into the World Trade Center than there were people celebrating gives the makers of this kind of video credit.

When people defame the Christian religion, you generally do not see rioting in the streets, and there is nearly universal protest against those that resort to violence in the name of Christianity. If the same were true for Islam, perhaps this video would never have been made, and if it were, it would not have gained any attention.
It does appear to be counter intuitive to say “We are a religion of peace, and if you say anything we don’t like, we will kill you!”

Now this is interesting.

She commonly reported information about the relatives, household composition, family deaths and illnesses, etc., of members of our team, without ever having observed or been informed about them. As an example, she knew the personality and precise manner of death (i.e., the exact type of cancer) of a relative of a team member that no one could conceivably have guessed. She once spoke about the strange behavior of some inexplicably frenzied animals beyond her direct observation: Though residing in another city, she commented, “So those cats really went berserk last night, didn’t they?” the morning after two cats in a team member’s house uncharacteristically had violently attacked each other at about 2 AM….

You’re going to want to read all of that one – it leaves quite a lot to think about.
