ANYONE WHO TRIES TO TIE THIS BLOG OR MY VIEWS TO THIS HORRIFIC ACT IN OSLO OR THIS PSYCHOTIC RIGHT-WING MASS MURDERER BREIVIK IS SCUMMY RECORD ON VIOLENCE AGAINST INNOCENT MUSLIMS IS CLEAR:
http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2011/03/either-house-of-saud-misunderstands.htmlWE ARE IN A CIVILIZATIONAL STRUGGLE AGAINST ISLAM.EXCERPT #2:
THIS DOESN'T MEAN WE ARE IN A WAR WITH EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM ANY MORE THAN WW2 WE WERE AT WAR WITH EVERY SINGLE GERMAN OR EVEN EVERY SINGLE NAZI.
BUT JUST AS WE WERE AT WAR WITH NAZISM THEN, WE ARE AT WAR WITH ISLAM NOW.
THE SOONER A MAJORITY OF US ACCEPT THIS THE BETTER. THE FAILURE TO ACCEPT THIS HAS LEAD US TO WASTE TIME AND TREASURE ON TACTICS AND STRATEGIES THAT CANNOT HELP US WIN - LIKE "DEMOCRATIZING" AFGHANISTAN, A GOAL I ONCE SHARED.
IF WE WANT TO TURN THE MUSLIMS THERE INTO PEOPLE WHO CAN LIVE UNDER DEMOCRACY AND THE RULE OF SECULAR LAW, THEN WE NEED TO TURN THE MUSLIMS THERE AWAY FROM ISLAM.http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2011/05/ww4-is-really-return-to-real-ww1.htmlMY RECORD ON THIS IS CLEAR.
This does NOT mean exterminate Muslims. This means LIBERATE them from islamism. More than 1 billion people are enslaved to this hideous ideology. We must liberate them.
CRUSHING Nazism didn't mean exterminating all Nazis or Germans; it did mean eradicating Nazism and bringing the worst perpetrators of Nazi atrocities to justice - summary or military.
So it must be with islamism.
Or we will lose.
THERE IS NO PLACE FOR THE KILLING OF INNOCENTS - OR FOR ANY EXTRA-JUDICIAL OR EXTRA-MARTIAL KILLING.
- OUT SIDE THE THEATER OF WAR AND WITHOUT A JUDICIAL PROCEEDING KILLING IS MURDER AND MURDER IS EVIL.
ANYONE WHO TRIES TO TIE THIS BLOG OR MY VIEWS TO THIS HORRIFIC ACT IN OSLO OR THIS PSYCHOTIC MASS MURDERER BREIVIK IS SCUM.
- KILLING IS ACCEPTABLE IN THE THEATER OF WAR AND AFTER JUDICIAL PROCEEDINGS (FOR CRIMES WHICH HAVE THE DEATH PENALTY AT THE TIME OF THE CRIME WAS COMMITTED).
HAVING THIS BLOG AND ARGUING THESE POINTS PROVES THAT I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO WAGE A NON-VIOLENT WAR OF IDEAS, AND CONVERT INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO HAVE EVIL CREEDS - NOT USE VIOLENCE AND KILL THEM.
I did not assume this was an act of islamo-terrorism. I accepted the first reports that islamists had taken credit for it at face value. This blog's first post on it posed it as a question, and only after an islamist group took credit did we jump on the bandwagon. We regret it.
... there is a specific jihadist connection here:
“Just nine days ago, Norwegian authorities filed charges against Mullah Krekar, an infamous al Qaeda-affiliated terrorist who, with help from Osama bin Laden, founded Ansar al Islam – a branch of al Qaeda in northern Iraq – in late 2001.”
This is a sobering reminder for those who think it’s too expensive to wage a war against jihadists.
I spoke to Gary Schmitt of the American Enterprise Institute, who has been critical of proposed cuts in defense and of President Obama’s Afghanistan withdrawal plan.
“There has been a lot of talk over the past few months on how we’ve got al-Qaeda on the run and, compared with what it once was, it’s become a rump organization. But as the attack in Oslo reminds us, there are plenty of al-Qaeda allies still operating. No doubt cutting the head off a snake is important; the problem is, we’re dealing with global nest of snakes.”
OBAMA HAS STOPPED UTILIZING GITMO AND NOT SENT ANYONE THERE TO BE QUESTIONED - SO WE ARE GETTING LESS INTEL'.
OBAMA REDUCED THE AMOUNT OF INTERNATIONAL SURVEILLANCE WE ARE DOING - OF PHONE CALLS AND BANK TRANSACTIONS; WE ARE DOING LESS NOW THAN UNDER BUSH AND GETTING LESS INTEL' NOW THAN DURING THE BUSH YEARS.
AND DESPITE HIS GLOBAL APOLOGY TOURS AND HIS APPEASING OF FATAH AND ASSAD AND IRAN, THE ARABS AND MUSLIMS HATE US JUST AS MUCH OR MORE THAN EVER.
WE ARE MORE VULNERABLE THAN EVER.
BECAUSE APPEASING MAKES US LOOK WEAK AND IT ENCOURAGES THEM TO ATTACK MORE.
WE WON'T BE GETTING ANY SAFER UNTIL WE ELECT A NEW PRESIDENT WHO PUTS OUR SECURITY - AND THE SECURITY OF OUR ALLIES - AHEAD OF APPEASING THE ENEMY AND THE ACLU.
Muslim fundamentalists took credit for it - and we believed them, but the Norwegian cops say that they've caught the camp shooter and can tie him to the bombing.
He is reportedly describes himself as a conservative Christian and nationalist.
Breivik had set up his own business, Breivik Geofarm, and a month ago had started to run an organic farm in Hedmark in eastern Norway. There he reportedly produced and stored fertilizers that he was able to use in explosives.
He was known to be active on the internet, expressing extremist Islamophobic views on forums and criticizing immigration policies.
He recently claimed that politics today was not about socialism vs. capitalism but nationalism vs. internationalism. He argued on a Swedish news website that the media were not critical enough about Islam and claimed that Geert Wilders' Party for Freedom in the Netherlands was the only "true" party of conservatives.
He argued that socialism was breaking down traditions, culture, national identity and other societal structures and that this in turn made society weak and confused.
On July 17 he set up a Facebook and Twitter account, posting a single tweet, "One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100,000 who have only interests."
He claimed to be well-read and worshiped the Norwegian World War II hero Max Manus. On his Facebook profile he listed his favorite books as "The Trial" by Franz Kafka and "Nineteen Eighty-Four" by George Orwell and his favorite television show as "Dexter," a series about a Miami police forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer of criminals whom he believes have escaped justice.
I THINK MAYBE THERE'S A POSSIBILITY THAT THIS BREIVIK IS ACTUALLY A PSYCHOTIC LEFTIST WHO DID THIS HORRIFYING ACT TO DISCREDIT THE RIGHT.
DO YOU THINK THIS IS TOO WEIRD TO BE TRUE!?!? BELIEVE THAT IT COULD NEVER HAPPEN!??
ER UM...IT DID BEFORE - IN NYC: AT FIRST THEY TRIED TO BLAME THE RIGHT:Authorities say a New York City cab driver is recovering after being brutally stabbed by a passenger who first demanded, "Are you Muslim?"ONLY ENRIGHT TURNED OUT TO BE A LEFTIST IN FAVOR OF THE GROUND ZERO MOSQUE.
The attacks occurred as New York is in the midst of a contentious debate over plans to build an Islamic community center and mosque a few blocks from the site of the former World Trade Center.
"I think this clearly demonstrates that hate speech often leads to hate crime when you have the constant vilification of Islam and Muslims on talk radio, in newspapers, on cable news and on the Internet," Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told AOL News.
Police said Ahmed Sharif, 43, of the borough of Queens was driving his taxi on Manhattan's East Side Monday night when he was hailed by a pedestrian on the street. Roughly one block from his destination, the passenger, identified as 21-year-old Michael Enright, of Brewster in upstate New York, allegedly asked Sharif, "Are you Muslim?" When Sharif said yes, Enright pulled out a knife and slashed Sharif in the neck, face and shoulders, police said.
Despite his injuries, Sharif was able to lock the attacker in the back of the cab and call for help. The suspect managed to get out of the vehicle, but police quickly located him and took him into custody.
MORE FROM POLITICO AT THE TIME:I think there's a good chance that Breivik will turn out to be another Enright.
The apparent anti-Muslim assault on a New York city cabbie by a man shouting “Assalamu Alaikum. Consider this a checkpoint" produced an immediate round of recriminations over its connection to opposition to a New York Islamic Center and an apparent rising tide of Islamophobia.
But as often at the intersection of politics and violent crime, the story doesn't appear to fit any easy stereotype: The alleged assailant, Michael Enright, is — according to his Facebook profile and the website of the left-leaning media organization Intersections International — a student at the School of Visual Arts and a volunteer for Intersections, which recently produced a statement of support for the Park51 project and is funded by the mainstream, liberal Collegiate Church of New York.
