In Britain 14 people were detained in a terror plot that completely separate from the airliner bomb plot uncovered a couple of weeks ago. For the first time a jihad training ground, set up in a former ballet school, was discovered (and hopefully swiftly dismantled). In the mean time Germanies officials have uncovered two (failed) bomb plots planned to coincide with the Football World Cup last July. Apparently still sour over the Mo-toons. And in Australia 11 muslims are to stand trial for (allegedly) preparing an atrocity planned for November last in Austalia. Lastly, in the US a video (RealMedia) has turned up introducing as to "Azzam al Amrikee", nee Adam Yahiye Gadahn, a US convert to Islam. The video, with an introduction by al Zawahiri, has this character explaining in plain English that Jihad is coming to America.
"Instead of killing yourself for Bush ... why not surrender to the truth (of Islam), escape from the unbelieving army and join the winning side. Time is running out so make the right choice before it's too late"


All this proving YET AGAIN that while the right hand of Islam puts up it's most innocent expression, Islams left hand is wetting the blade of the knife with which it wants to finish off the West. And the wetting is nearly done.

Incidentally, Walid Phares, who thinks this video is an introduction of "Azzam" as the leader of US jihadist, notices the clear identification of who Islam considers fellow travelers. In the video Gadahn specifally names such luminaries as British MP George Galloway and journalist Robert Fisk, but adresses issues in a way that must sound immensely pleasing to anyone on the left side of the political divide with a burning hatred of Bush and Blair. That such overtures are not in the least in vain is proven by a column by Bill Maher in the LA Times (but curiously NOT in the on-line version). He thinks that
[i]f converting to Islam is all it takes to get the terrorists off our backs, then all I have to say is, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
No, really. Because
Koran, Bible -- what's the diff? They're both full of moral pieties and codes of conduct nobody follows anyway, so let's pick the one that lets us take hair gel on the plane!
Apparently surrendering yourself to a doctrine that completely obliterates all the key elements that make up Western thought and brought us wealth and welfare is the most logical path faced with the prospect of having to board a plain without your favorite hair product at hand. Giving up your entire civilization for a pot of gel. Yeah, that makes sense.

(then again, Bill Maher would say that wouldn't he? It's not like he's a female having to live under sharia law and a big, black burkha if he gets his wish).


This week saw another low point for that pinacle of transnational incapability: The UN. Hot on the heels of the UNs failure, and disqualification by its own hands, in Iran comes a UN report that states that a nations right to self defence is against International Law. Which probably explains the UNs condemnation of Israel for fighting in times of, well, war. Add to this the continued failure that is the UN intervention plans in Darfur and what do you get: Utterly useless.


Speaking of Iran: the EU, that other shining example of tranzie inadequacy has responded to Irans refusal to meet the August 31 deadline for comlying with IAEA demands to stop enriching uranium with... another deadline.


EU Referendum have completed their "Qanagate report": Corruption of the Media. They've sent it to the UK Press Complaints Commission. The latter have in the mean time answered and just may be interested in pursuing the matter.


In a rather bizarre twist of PC deconstruction of language, Sweden apparently has no more Swedes. Only persons who may or may not be of "Swedish background". It would seem that multicultural society is not complete untill the host nationality is obliterated and expunged from the records of history.

BTW, via the same Gates of Vienna this

Quote of the day

“Liberty is the prevention of control by others. This requires self-control and, therefore, religious and spiritual influences; education, knowledge, well-being.”Lord Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton (1834–1902)


This is not exactly new, but it hardly made the news anywhere (not even her in the Netherlands):
Eight people were injured in a bizarre stabbing incident at a shopping centre in the northern town of Emmeloord on Thursday [August 24].

Seven of the victims were customers and the eighth was a shop assistant, a police spokesperson said. A 29-year-old local man was arrested moments after the attack.
What was so neutrally described as a '29-year-old local man' in reality turns out to be of Turkish descent. Now, since
there was still no clarity about the motive for the attack, but there was no question of a robbery or theft at the time
we are left with the intriguing possibility of the first incident of "Sudden Jihad Syndrome" in the Netherlands. But as always, the authorities are deadly silent. On the perpetrators background as well as the motives for his action.


And lastly: the documentary Obsession is back online. The Infidel Bloggers Alliance reports this page here, where you can download the file, plus the player for it. I highly recommend watching it.
