9-23 : Another NY Tower Hit by Islamists

In a week which saw multiple arrests of terror suspects in New York, it emerges that Islamists once again tried to bring down another of Manhattan’s high-rise buildings.

The 39-storey UN edifice was slammed twice.

The first blast came from Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi. During a 90-minute tirade the ranting robed Bedouin slammed the place as a ‘terror council’ tearing up a copy of the UN charter and throwing it at the podium.

But it was the second attack, by Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which sent most delegates fleeing for the exits.
Others stayed put for the entire 35-minute tirade of scorn and bigoted rhetoric.
These included Scandinavians, New Zealanders, Greeks and Mexicans – people who haven’t experienced Islamic terror
before and think it only happens to 'other countries'.

This double whammy swayed an already sagging structure which was found years ago to have been built on double standards.

The fire department was summoned. First on the scene was Benjamin Netanyahu, from Jacob’s Ladder 48. He quickly diagnosed a major structural fault and appealed to members to look urgently for the original plans on which the UN was built.

Only by understanding the designs of the original builders, he said, could the structural integrity of this edifice possibly be saved before it was too late.

Grand Slam

I'm not one to like seeing Israel lose at anything - be they wars, debates or sporting tournaments.

But yesterday's 4-1 defeat in the Davis Cup semi-final makes me happy.

Not of course for the victorious Spaniards.

But for the Jewish nation.

Yesterday was Rosh Hashanah.
The Jewish New Year is not done with booze and fireworks but with two days of prayer. Even for the secular it is a time for reflection over our past deeds and humility in face of the year ahead. This is because, as 'the people of the book' we have a higher responsibility to our fellow man as well as the creator of all things.

This was no day for a national tennis game - least of all as a draw for hundreds of thousands of Israelis to watch in pubs and clubs whilst more than half the population were in synagogue.

I'm no tennis buff but I've read that few of the pundits expected Israel to beat Russia or get anywhere near the semi-finals in this tournament. The team captain could not therefore have anticipated being matched on the high holydays.
However, once having reached the semi-final there was clearly an option to withdraw rather than play.

Putting God above sport would undoubtedly have made major headlines, even for Israel.

Just think of the impact such a message would have made in these nihilist times.

And what a contrast to those who invoke God and religion not in matters of sport, but to justify mass murder and civilian butchery.

But Captain Eyal Ran and his star player Dudi Sela went ahead and played anyway.

And the grand-slamming they got was nothing but truly Divine!

Cartoon of the year ?

Are such people worth saving?

Interesting to read of the celebrations in the Arab world which have greeted the early release of Iraqi journalist Muntader al-Zaidi, who famously threw his shoes at President George W Bush in Baghdad shouting: “This is a gift from the Iraqis; this is the farewell kiss, you dog!”

After the incident, thousands of Iraqis took to the streets in his support and 200 Iraqi lawyers offered to defend him for free.

He was awarded the Medal of Freedom by America's new friend Colonel Gadaffi of Libya.

Syria - another Obama cultivee - named a street in his honor.

A Saudi businessman offered to buy him a 6-door Mercedes.
Another wealthy arab offered to give him his 20-year old daughter.
(The camel was probably too high a price!)
A video game has been named after him called 'Sock & Awe'.
And a giant copper statue of a shoe was erected in Tikrit.

Upon his release, they've been celebrating in the streets and slaughtering sheep in his honor.
His daughters have been reciting the poems they've made up, further deriding the US President.
And he's totally unrepentant, now making the astonishing claim that he was tortured with electric shocks and cable on the very premises of his arrest whilst he could still hear George Bush speaking.

Under Saddam, Mr Al-Zaidi would have been tossed alive into one of his tree shredders for doing what he did.

And these are the people we freed ?
The people Obama is 'engaging' ?

All the news that's fit to print ...

Time was that journalists used to risk their lives for a story.

Stephen Farrell is one of those who risks other people's lives for a story.

Seems like a waste when you are working for the New York Times, which is not a newpaper interested in the truth - only in the news that it sees fit to print.

This is how the New York Times reported their man's rescue from Taliban kidnappers in Afghanistan:

“Stephen Farrell is a New York Times reporter who was kidnapped by militants in northern Afghanistan on Sept. 5, 2009. He was rescued in a military commando raid four days later, but his Afghan interpreter was killed during the rescue effort.”

Significantly, no mention of the British soldier who also died in the operation to save their man; 29 year-old Corporal John Harrison.

But then again, that's the New York Times !

9-11 after 8 years

Another year - another anniversary of the greatest terrorist outrage in history.

After 8 years, we still wait for an apology from the Muslim world for what was done in the name of their prophet.

Or at least a speech of condemnation from ANY major Muslim cleric.

To the best of my knowledge, we have heard neither.

Instead it is America who apologises to the Muslim world.

To the Saudis, who provided 11 out of the 19 hijackers, Obama bows in homage.

To the Palestinians, who celebrated the 2,974 deaths with street parties and sweets, America and Europe has never ceased doling out tens of millions in cash.

And to he rest of the Arab world which celebrated 9-11 in their own special ways, Obama reaches out in peaceful engagement whilst acknowledging the tremendous contributions they have made to mankind.

There's no better way to dishonor the memory of the victims of 9-11 and to absolutely assure the free world of 'more of the same' to come.

Churchill on Muslims & Jews

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world . Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome. "

[Winston Churchill, 1899]

Some people like Jews and some do not; but no thoughtful man can doubt the fact that they are beyond all question the most formidable and the most remarkable race which has ever appeared in the world.

[Winston Churchill, 1920]

Israel’s excremental self-haters’ journal, Ha’aretz, has printed this piece on Jerusalem by its star writer Yossi Sarid.

Sarid was one of the founders of the now defunct Meretz party. Prior to that he partnered leftist Shulamith Aloni in a party called "Ratz". How apt.

Here is what Sarid says about Jerusalem:

Thank God I no longer live there.
How terrible that place is.
I think that for me, it is lost.

The atmosphere of Jerusalem makes me ill.
I worked there for almost 40 years, and at the end of the work day,
I preferred to drive to Tel Aviv - a drive that would help me breathe.
In the holy city, I felt choked and oppressed.

Is Jerusalem too holy for human beings to inhabit?

I'm sure there must be an especially hot place reserved in the next world for those who speak ill of Jerusalem.

If the atmosphere of Jerusalem makes Sarid ill, he really needs to spend more time there.
