Al Qaeda linked organization kidnapping Christian boys in Pakistan
A SENIOR member of an Islamic organisation linked to Al-Qaeda is funding his activities through the kidnapping of Christian children who are sold into slavery in Pakistan. The Sunday Times has established that Gul Khan, a wealthy militant who uses the base of Jamaat-ud Daawa (JUD) near Lahore, is behind a cruel trade in boys aged six to 12. They are abducted from remote Christian villages in the Punjab and fetch nearly £1,000 each from buyers who consign them to a life of misery in domestic servitude or in the sex trade.
Ther[e] is more including this: "Hafez Muhamed Sayeed, its leader, [of the JUD] was accused of inciting riots in Pakistan this year with speeches denouncing western “depravity” after a Danish newspaper published cartoons of the prophet Muhammad." A very strange sense of depravity some Muslim "leaders" have.These jihadothugs desire to rule the world under a sociopathic, religious totalitarianism. They commit genocide against anyone they consider inferior - including MILLIONS of other Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Animists - (IOW: NOT JUST JEWS AND CHRISTIANS!).
Kidnapping and slavery and sex-slavery are minor offenses compared to the other things they've done - ROUTINELY. THAT'S HOW SICK THESE BASTARDS ARE!
This should come as no shock to ANYONE: The jihadothugs who committed 9/11 will OF COURSE also commit kidnappings and run sex-slave rings and perform beheadings. (HECK: THEY MURDER THEIR OWN DAUGHTERS AND SISTERS AND CALL IT "HONOR-KILLINGS!)
We should NOT seek any understanding, or any rapprochement, or any detente or any form of appeasement with these evil animals. They must be erased from the face of the Earth. Them and their evil creed.
Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.This has been interpreted to mean that children of ILLEGAL ALIENS who are born here are LEGALLY/CONSTITUTIONALLY citizens.
Tis interpretation has greatly exacerbated our illegal immigration problems. (It is tougher to punish illegals wo have kids who were born here, and it is tougher to deport them, and it ieasier for them to bring in other family members.)
There is a simple cure: AMEND THE 14th AMENDMENT SO THAT IT SAYS:
"ALL PERSONS BORN IN THE UNITED STATES TO LEGAL CITIZENS..."Simple. The present interpretation is a vestige of an earlier time - when the borders were not as porous as they have been the last two decades, and it was written when many Americans were still alive who were born in the colonies, (1866).
IT IS TIME TO MAKE THIS AMENDMENT REFLECT TODAY'S NEEDS.
This shouldn't be controversial, or a problem for the Left; after all, the Constitution was meant to be a "living document" - evolving to meet the needs of the people. HEH.
[HEY LEFTIES: EVOLVE OR GET OUT OF THE WAY!]
(More HERE and HERE and HERE.)
They deserve what they have: a filthy nest of corrupt, vicious, blood-thirsty, murdering, raping, pillaging, thieving jihadomaniacs.
If they want to live like civilized human beings then the first thing they have to do is abandon their dehumanizing ideology of hate, genocide, and misogyny. IOW: ISLAM - as it is preached and practiced by HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF POOR, ENSLAVED, BRUTALIZED MUSLIMS ALL OVER THE WORLD.
Places like Pakistan and Afghanistan and Thailand and Sudan, and Jordan, and Chechnya - and MANY MANY MORE PLACES - WHERE THERE ARE NO ZIONISTS AND NO AMERICANS AND NO REPUBLICANS AND NO CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALISTS - are nevertheless rife with jihadomania. IOW: the root cause of Muslim rage is not anything we in the West do (or have done), but something INTERNAL to the Muslim religion and Muslim culture.
If Muslims want to have peaceful and properous lives, then they have to REFORM THEMSELVES. (Prosperity and peace are by-products of liberty and democracy.) Is this possible possible WITHIN Islam? This man says no.
And the current Turkish situation is NOT encouraging, either: even there - even after nearly a SOLID CENTURY OF SECULARISM - jihadomania is still a VERY REAL threat to life, limb, liberty and prosperity. If Attaturk's INCREDIBLE reforms - which were for decades ruthlessly enforced - couldn't take root there, then where can they? CAN THEY ANYWHERE?
There is scant evidence - anywhere - that it can.
Before we give up on 1/6th of humanity, we should do whatever we can to liberate them and save our brothers and sisters who suffer under this archaic and harmfuland hateful ideology. And we don't have to limit our efforts to the use of military force.
We can and should use our economic and diplomatic force more directly. We should require that all nations which belong to the UN enforce the UN's Declaration of Human Rights. We should require that no nation be permitted to allow forced marriage, "female circumscision", "honor-killings", endogamous marriage, or polygamy. Any state that permits these anti-humane/anti-female practices should be banished from all international organizations: the UN, the World Bank, the IMF, the WTO, OPEC, etc.
Nations which persist in permitting the practice of archaic, anti-humane acts mustn't be allowed to benefit from membership in - or trade with - the modern civilized world.
Moral ambiguity on this matter leads to inactivity, and that is essentially, merely another form of appeasement.
Ultimately, if the modern word is going to win this confrontation, then we must deal with the root cause. And direct politicial confrontation with those nations which permit anti-humane practices is what is presently needed.

(1) Spain in migrant diplomacy drive :
This year alone 7,000 people have reached the Canary IslandsSpain has announced a three-year diplomatic offensive in West Africa to try to stem the flow of African migrants to Europe. ... Spain will base a diplomatic team in Senegal to try to persuade six nations to accept deported migrants. Madrid on Friday also asked the European Union for more help in dealing with the migrants.(2) France-Africa ties 'must change':
The ambition of many young African men is to work in EuropeThe French Interior Minister, Nicolas Sarkozy, has told leaders in the West African state of Benin that Africa and France must remould their relationship. ... Mr Sarkozy faced angry protests in the main city of Cotonou, where he outlined plans for a new immigration policy.
In a speech, Mr Sarkozy said France and Africa must change the "old ways" and move past the colonial era. [Sarkozy is sponsoring a bill which] requires immigrants from outside the EU to sign a contract agreeing to learn French and to respect the principles of the French Republic, and [which] makes it more difficult for them to bring their families over to join them.
Mr Sarkozy says he wants to reduce illegal immigration
Social Democrat Ola Johansson referred to the book Social Justice in Islam by the Islamic ideologue Sayyid Qutb as proof that the social democratic ideology could find common ground with Islamic ideas. As the Swedish paper Expressen has exposed, Sayyid Qutb was not only a social thinker; he was also inspired by the German Nazi movement. He was an important figure in the Egyptian Islamic movement in the 50's and remains an inspiration for Muslim Extremists.
Sayyid Qutb calls for an all out war against the western civilization; he hates liberal democracy, views capitalism as a sick idea and is an extreme anti-Semite. Perhaps it is not a coincidence that Qutbs writings were translated to Dutch by Mohammed Bouyeri, the murderer of Theo van Gogh.
There is little sign that the unholy alliance between the Swedish Social Democrats and radical Muslims is ending. After the last election in 2002, Sweden’s Muslim Association sent a letter to the re-elected Social Democratic Prime Minister Göran Persson, congratulating him on his victory and hoping that Persson would work for implementing some of the demands of the Association in the future. It will be interesting to see if this emerging alliance will become part of daily political life in Sweden.
BAATHISM IS A POLITICAL FORM OF JIHADISM.
SADDAM AND ASSAD ARE BAATHISTS.
GALLOWAY IS ANOTHER SOCIALIST APPEASER OF BAATHISM. AS IS RED KEN. AND SOCIALIST PRODI. AND SOCIALIST ZAPATERO.
AND THE LEFT IN THE USA. PEOPLE LIKE MOORE AND SHEEHAN.
BIRDS OF A FEATHER.
But, if you can admit that socialism was the worst, most genocidal, poverty inducing "ism" in the 20th Century, then maybe you should boycott Citgo (hat tip STEYN) - and send a message to its anachronistic tyrant, Chavez. (More HERE.)
AND REMEMBER: THE MARXIST CHAVEZ SUPPORTS IRAN AND SADDAM. WHICH PROVES ONCE AGAIN, THAT THE LEFT AND THE JIHADISTS ARE ALLIES. AND BOTH ARE OUR ENEMIES.

Hamas man caught smuggling $1 millionNYTIMES:
President Mahmoud Abbas has asked the Palestinian attorney general to investigate a senior Hamas official who was caught trying to smuggle nearly 1 million dollars into the Gaza Strip, a senior Abbas adviser said Friday. "President Abbas has sent the money and the file to the attorney general," said the Abbas adviser, legislator Saeb Erekat. "It has become a legal case that requires an investigation." Earlier Friday, the senior Hamas official, Sami Abu Zuhri, was caught trying to smuggle €639,000 into Gaza from Egypt.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said today that Israel would buy drugs and medical equipment urgently needed by Palestinian hospitals in Gaza out of funds it is withholding from tax and customs receipts collected for the Palestinian Authority, now run by Hamas.THE FACT THAT HAMAS IS SMUGGLING CASH INTO GAZA IS PROOF THAT ANY AND ALL AID TO HAMAS/PALISTAN MUST STOP - NOW.
EVERY DOLLAR WE GIVE THEM TO SPEND IN A SCHOOL OR A HOSPITAL IS ANOTHER DOLLAR THEY CAN SPEND ON TERROR. (More HERE.)
STOP THE INSANITY NOW!
They blocked expansion of off-shore drilling.It's LONG passed time that the Congress got serious and took MEANINGFUL/BOLD action:
They passed a wimpy "English is the official language" bill.
(1) made English MANDATORY for ALL government activities/intercourse and education; and (2) opened up ALL of our nation's coastal waters for oil-drilling.These votes PROVE that elections COUNT. If the Left - and the Democrat Party they control - GAIN seats this fall, then the problem WILL ONLY GET WORSE.
Which means - no matter how pissed off you are at Bush and the GOP - if you want rational and bold and meaningful progress in WW4 and energy and tax policies then you MUST VOTE GOP. PERIOD.

Brazilian archaeologists have found an ancient stone structure in a remote corner of the Amazon that may cast new light on the region's past. The site, thought to be an observatory or place of worship, pre-dates European colonisation and is said to suggest a sophisticated knowledge of astronomy. ... It was traditionally thought that before European colonisation, the Amazon had no advanced societies.
The archaeologists made the discovery in the state of Amapa, in the far north of Brazil. A total of 127 large blocks of stone were found driven into the ground on top of a hill. Well preserved and each weighing several tons, the stones were arranged upright and evenly spaced. It is not yet known when the structure was built, but fragments of indigenous pottery found at the site are thought to be 2,000 years old. ... It is thought the ancient people of the Amazon used the stars and phases of the moon to determine crop cycles. ... It is thought to have been erected some time between 3000 and 1600 BC.
BTW: scientists recently made another discovery in the Amazon. They discovered that MOST of the tress are MUCH OLDER than they ever thought. (Another link HERE.) And since OLD TREES do not absorb as much CO2 as YOUNG TREES, the aging of the Amazon might be the REAL major reason that atmospheric CO2 levels have risen.
If this is true, then the REAL way to decrease atmospheric CO2 levels in NOT by mandating less use of fossil fuels, but by allowing CLEAR-CUTTING of huge swathes of the Amazon, and then replanting it with YOUNG TREES, which DO absorb/(sequester) a lot of CO2 - because they're GROWING.
The House on Thursday debated whether to end a quarter-century ban on offshore oil and gas development in coastal waters outside the western Gulf of Mexico, weighing arguments that new supplies are needed to lower energy prices.As I most recently blogged HERE, KATRINA PROVED that off-shore exploration and driling for energy IS ENTIRELY SAFE: not a single off-shore platform damaged in Katrina, leaked. NOT ONE. AND KATRINA WAS THE MOST POWERFUL STORM EVER IN THE GULF!
The drilling ban was removed from a $25.9 billion Interior Department spending bill in committee as it applies to natural gas and an amendment, offered on the House floor on Thursday, would lift the moratoria on offshore oil drilling as well. ... Opponents of the drilling moratoria argued that access to offshore oil and especially natural gas would drive down energy prices and help reduce the country's dependence on foreign sources of energy.
"We have lost millions of jobs already because of high energy costs and we're going to lose millions more," said Rep. John Peterson, who has argued for lifting the ban on natural gas drilling.
Soaring natural gas prices, which have quadrupled since 1999, have forced companies especially in the chemical and fertilizer industries to consider moving overseas where fuel prices are much cheaper, he said.
The Left - and the Democrat party they control - is enforcing this IDIOTIC moratorium. Only one reason remains: they feel that the platforms will spoil their view! Which is - BTW - the ONLY reason why Lefties like Teddy Jo Kennedy and Jean-Francois Heinz-Kerry and Walter Cronkite OPPOSE A WINDFARM off the coast of Nantucket.
This is just more proof that the Left today is composed of hypocritical, lying, self-serving, rich elitist scum.

The Da Vinci Intifada:
POPE BENEDICT DECLARES FATWA ON DAN BROWN AND ORDERS CHRISTIANS TO BURN EVERY COPY OF THE BOOK AND MOVIE
The religion which the Left blames for the Crusades, and which the Left FEARS is trying to take over the USA - (just ask Kevin Phillips) - has done NOTHING in response to the book or the movie based on the book THE DA VINCI CODE. Even though the book/movie says that the messiah they worship was a liar and a fraud.
Yet the Left apologizes for - ISLAM - a religion whose fundamentalist adherents actually organizes riots, commits murders, loots and pillages over CARTOONS.
ADDENDUM: The Left GENERALLY believes that "evil" is a culturally relative value, EXCEPT when it comes to the Judeo-Christian empire - aka Western Civilization - which the Left believes is an EVIL "machine" which is responsible for Third World poverty, and global-warming. To the Left, Judeo-Christians are evil people who seek to make sure every pregnancy goes to term, and want people pay for their own pensions and their own health insurance. OH, HOW EVIL!
The Left chooses to ignore the FACT that socialism was actually the root cause of the worst genocide in all of human history, and worst of the tyrannies of the 20th Century.
The Left chooses to ignore that Thrid World poverty is the result of under-industrialization: "What the Third World needs now is factories sweet factories." As the West became more industrialized, Westerners became more numerous, more prosperous, healthier and longer lived. Even China and India were only able to improve their economies AFTER they recently abandoned socialism and command economies. Even Vietnam wants to do the same. Third World poverty will end when third-worlders abandon socialism and agrarian "farm reform", and embrace free markets and industrialization.
HERE'S MORE PROOF THAT LEFTISTS SEEK TO (1) APPEASE JIHADO-THUGGERY AND (2) THAT THEY EQUATE SO-CALLED FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIANITY WITH JIHADOTERRORISM - (IN THEIR OWN FRIGGIN WORDS NO LESS!):
"We consider the war and occupation in Iraq a grave error ... It is therefore the government's intention to propose to parliament the withdrawal of our troops, even if we are proud of the display of professional ability, courage and humanity they have been giving."Prodi - one of the LEADERS of socialism, in ITALY AND THE EU - is essentially saying (1) that he'd prefer it if Saddam - a genocidal baathist/socialist tyrant - was still in power AND (2) that Judeo-Christians DEFENDING themselves from jihadoterrorism are just as bad as the jihadoterrorist instigators.
Mr Prodi was shouted down by cries of "shame" from right-wing opposition MPs and it took several minutes to restore order. Mr Prodi gave no date for the withdrawal and said a technical time frame would have to be worked out with the Iraqi authorities and with the UK and United States.
He said his government condemned international terrorism, but he also warned against "fundamentalism" in Western reactions.
WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT I ACCUSED THE LEFT OF (ABOVE).
The Left are terror/tyranny appeasing scum. CASE CLOSED.

if Netherlands Integration Minister Rita Verdonk succeeds in revoking Hirsi Ali’s Dutch citizenship, she may have serious difficulties in getting a visa for the United States.If she can't get a US visa, then Bush and Congress should confer citizen status on her AT ONCE. She would be in fitting company: Winston Churchil, Raoul Wallenberg, Mother Teresa, Lafayette, and The Penns - (NOT Sean and Robin, but the Founders of Pennsylvania!). More HERE.
******* 5/17/06 - UPDATE: fron "Reuters":
The Dutch parliament demanded on Wednesday that the immigration minister reconsider her decision to strip a Somali-born lawmaker of her passport for falsifying her asylum claim, or else grant her citizenship anew.It MIGHT be a reprieve, of sorts. NEVERTHELESS: She should come here, and Bush should make her an honorary citizen.
I agree with most of his points. KEY POINT: "politics is the art of the possible" - and that often requires compromise.
(In a more perfect world, my semi-tongue-in-cheek suggestion [below] would actually be seen as workable and it'd be enacted. SCROLL DOWN.)
[ASIDE: I do think that Bush is NOT right-of-center enough, and that he MUST move to the right if he's ever going to get above 50% in the polls. And I think it would be good if he did this BEFORE the next election. MORE HERE.]
A substantial and growing number of reputable climatologists argue climate change is a natural process which involves more than greenhouse gases, and they question whether human activity has much effect. They point out temperatures have actually fallen slightly in recent years despite unprecedented levels of economic activity and rates of greenhouse gas emissions. They note, too, that temperatures rose in the twenty years to 1940, when industrial activity was well below present levels, and fell during the following twenty years when activity and emissions increased.When an eco-nut explains the anomlies listed above I will reconsider my opinion that climate change IS NOT man-made. Until then, I consider those who argue that global-warming is man-made to be fools.
It is a matter of geological record that high temperatures occurred in previous eras before there was any industrial - or human - activity at all. More recently, temperatures were high around the 8th century and fell during the 16th century Little Ice Age, without help from industry.
GATEWAY PUNDIT HAS THE PHOTO OF THE BILLBOARD. AND THE PHOTOSHOP.
(2) Lefties in Holland want MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali KICKED OUT (because she's an illegal immigrant).
What do these two positions have in common? HOW CAN THE LEFT SUPPORT BOTH POSITIONS? EASY. THEY HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON: Both positions undermine traditional culture. And, the Left supports any policy which undermines traditional/bourgeoise values and mores. As counter-culture radicals, the Left supports anything and anybody who attacks the core values of the West - even the jihadoterrorists (AS CHOMSKY PROVED ONCE AGAIN, RECENTLY, BY VISITING HIZBALLAH IN LEBANON).
Illegal immigrants who refuse to pay taxes - or to assimilate - undermine our culture and our economy - therefore the Left supports them.These twin positions of the Left, re-emphasizes a BIG THEME FOR ME LATELY: Before we can defeat the jihadoterrorists we must defeat the Left.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali DEFENDS traditonal/bourgeoise culture and values and DEMOCRACY - and universal Human Rights, and she is therefore an enemy of the Left.
That's why exposing the Left's core belligerence to everything traditional, bourgeoise and Western is such an important thing. It's a way to undermine their attempt at seeming centrist and safe to the electorate. In fact, the Left is neither centrist or safe. The Left seeks to destroy traditional culture (Western Civilization) from within and it uses anything and everything to achieve that end: from undermining our war against jihadoterrorism, to supporting unlimited immigration, and gay marriage.
People who want to defend traditional culture and Western Civilization should remember who our real enemies are - and NOT get side-tracked or get sucked into issues which might elect a Left-wing dominated Congress this fall. A left-eing/Democrat victory would guarantee we lose WW4, and it would be a major set back Western Civilization.
It might already be too late for Europe. Demography and muticultrualism and socialism may have already doomed Europe to becoming a poor Islamic region where despots rule and women are victims of gang rape and honor killings - like the Middle East - except for Israel.
If the Left gets control of the federal government, the USA will fast become more like Europe: the Left will bloat our government, open our borders, and appease the jihadoterrorists and undermine traditonal values.
If you vote for Democrats this fall - or if you stay home and don't vote GOP, (because you're pissed off at GWB's spending or his immigration plan, or his half-assed defense of WW4) - then you are voting to become more like France and Spain.
I believe that Western Civilization is worth fighting for, and I think that voting GOP is one way we can all join that fight.
Those who say that Bush and the Congressional GOP have botched things and don't deserve support are forgetting who the alternatives are and what they stand for.
I believe that if the Left wins the next election here in the USA, then Ahmadinejad and Zarqawi and Binladen and Saddam and Kofi and Livingstone and Chavez will have won the war.

Shipping illegal Latin American immigrants from the USA to the EU would GET TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE: It would SOLVE THE USA ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION PROBLEM, AND EUROPE'S DEMOGRAPHIC ECONOMIC/CULTURAL DECLINE.
The EU as a whole faces the same exact problem. One that is compunded by the fact that most of the immigrants entering most of the EU nations for the last 20 years have been NON-EUROPEANS NON-CHRISTIANS - MUSLIMS - who have large families and who have CHOSEN NOT TO ASSIMILATE, and who have actually been settling in the EU in order to COLONIZE the EU and turn it into "EURABIA." (READ BRUCE BAWER'S BOOK: WHILE EUROPE SLEPT. In addition to shwoing how multiculturalism and socialism have aided the Muslim, Bawer shows how immigration policies have actually favored non-European Muslim immigration over Eastern Europe to Western Europe immigration.)
The USA does NOT have a demographic problem: our population is GROWING and the average age is actually getting YOUNGER - even as longevity increases.
BUT... the USA does have an ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION PROBLEM: too many Latin American immigrants are coming in to the USA ILLEGALLY, and NOT ASSIMILATING, and NOT PAYING TAXES. (Bush will address the nation on this CRISIS tomorrow night.)
I HAVE A SOLUTION TO BOTH PROBLEMS: the USA, Mexico, the EU, and the OAS should pool our resources and FLY LATIN AMERICAN IMMIGRANTS TO THE EU!
These immigrants are hard-working people.This is a WIN-WIN-WIN:
They ALREADY speak a EUROPEAN LANGUAGE: SPANISH!
And they are CHRISTIAN.
They will rejuvenate the EU's economy and revitalize the Roman Catholic Church there - which has been declining.
The USA wins because we get control of the illegal immigration problem.This proposal is NOT PC. But it would work. To enact it, we'd need brave politicians like Pim Fortuyn - folks wo would be brave enough to do what needs to be done - before it's too late.
The immigrant wins because he gets to work in a society/culture/economy that desperately needs him, AND WILL APPRECIATE HIM, and one which he can MORE EASILY assimilate into.
And the EU wins because they can stave off demographic and economic collapse WITHOUT BECOMING MUSLIM.
[NOTE: Spain and Zapatero would be an ideal choice to manage the program - since Imperial Spain colonized the New World.]
SO, THERE IS NO RATIONAL REASON FOR THE DEMOCRAT/LEFT ECO-NAZIS TO MAINTAIN THEIR OPPOSITON TO -- AND THEREBY FORCE A VIRTUAL MORATORIUM ON -- OFF-SHORE OIL DRILLING OFF THE WEST COAST, THE EAST COAST AND THE COAST OF FLORIDA. IT'S WHY WE HAVE TO IMPORT SO MUCH OIL AND WHY WE PAY MORE THAN WE SHOULD, AND IT'S STRANGLING THE USA ECONOMY!
(And previous posts here and here and here.)
BTW: The UK and Norway drill for oil in the friggin NORTH SEA - the roughest sea on the globe - and they do it safely/cleanly. And Canada drills for oil all over the same exact type of terrain/"ecology" that the Democrat/Left/eco-nazis won't let US oil companies drill in in Alaska. HECK: IF THE UK, NORWAY, AND CANADA CAN DRILL SAFELY AND CLEANY, THEN SO CAN WE. AND SO WE SHOULD. AND SO WE MUST.
It's time the Left got out of the way. Expensive energy is a TAX ON THE POOR. Therefore, the continued resistance by the Left to off-shore oil-drilling is HURTING THE POOR.
It's sort of like Teddy Jo Kennedy's and John Francois Kerry-Heinz's opposition to a wind-farm off the coast of NANTUCKET: they oppose it because they value their little rich kid views more than helping the poor or helping the economy.
It's time that Congress and Bush aggressively moved to allow for more off-shore drilling off the coast of the USA.
