Countdown to the Islamification of New Zealand

Countdown to New Zealand becoming an Islamic State

Countdown to New Zealand becoming an Islamic State

It is happening in European Countries all over the world. Some countries are already at crisis point.

I want us to stop the clock but we first need to be aware of the bigger picture.  Every little incident here in New Zealand is leading us down a path.

Do we want in 5 years time to be where the below countries are right now?

Does Keith Locke still think the head hackers are just misunderstood?

Keith Locke and other apologists for Islamic terrorists should hold their heads in shame.

They won’t of course, they will blame the latest murder of an aid worker by the head hacking ISIS terrorists as proof that the West has caused the radicalisation of peace loving muslims.

Islamic State militants on Sunday claimed to have beheaded American aid worker Peter Kassig and at least a dozen Syrian soldiers, releasing a graphic video in which they warned the United States they would kill other Americans “on your streets.”

The video shows one masked militant standing over a decapitated head. Speaking in English with a British accent, the man says: “This is Peter Edward Kassig, a U.S. citizen.”

There was no immediate confirmation on the authenticity of the video. President Obama is returning to Washington after a trip to Australia and the White House released no statement. A National Security Council spokesman, however, said, “If confirmed, we are appalled by the brutal murder of an innocent American aid worker and we express our deepest condolences to his family and friends.”

The video identifies the militants’ location as Dabiq, a town in northern Syria, according to the Associated Press.

The brutal video, shot in high definition, shows the beheadings of about a dozen men identified as Syrian military officers and pilots, dressed in blue jumpsuits.    Read more »

Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to die we go

How long before New Zealand has our very own jihadists leaving for foreign wars.

In Australia four brothers have set off to join ISIS…they aren’t likely to be returning in one piece I would imagine…if at all.

Four brothers slipped out of Australia last week to join the fight with Islamic State (Isis) in Syria.

As authorities attempt to contain home-grown terrorists from leaving Australia, the latest recruits from Western Sydney have been labelled “cleanskins” by police agencies because they were completely unknown to intelligence.

The brothers – aged 17, 23, 25 and 28 – told their parents they were going on a holiday to Thailand, according to Sydney’s Daily Telegraph.

The siblings are believed to have travelled to Turkey and crossed the Syrian border in the past week.    Read more »

Remember the shoe bomb guy that tried to get on a plane?

A reader sent this in

Did you know his trial is over? Did you know he was sentenced?

Did you see/hear any of the judge’s comments on TV or Radio?

I didn’t think so.!!!

Everyone should hear what the judge had to say.

Prior to sentencing, the Judge asked the defendant if he had anything to say His response: After admitting his guilt to the court for the record, Reid also admitted his ‘allegiance to Osama bin Laden, to Islam and to the religion of Allah,’ defiantly stating, ‘I think I will not apologize for my actions’ and told the court ‘I am at war with your country.’

Judge Young then delivered the statement quoted below:

“Judge Young: ‘Mr. Richard C. Reid, hearken now to the sentence the Court imposes upon you.

“On counts 1, 5 and 6 the Court sentences you to life in prison in the custody of the United States Attorney General. On counts 2, 3, 4 and 7, the Court sentences you to 20 years in prison on each count, the sentence on each count to run consecutively. (That’s 80 years.)

“On count 8 the Court sentences you to the mandatory 30 years again, to be served consecutively to the 80 years just imposed. The Court imposes upon you for each of the eight counts a fine of $250,000 that’s an aggregate fine of $2 million. The Court accepts the government’s recommendation with respect to restitution and orders restitution in the amount of $298.17 to Andre Bousquet and $5,784 to American Airlines.

“The Court imposes upon you an $800 special assessment. The Court imposes upon you five years supervised release simply because the law requires it. But the life sentences are real life sentences so I need go no further.

“This is the sentence that is provided for by our statutes. It is a fair and just sentence. It is a righteous sentence. Read more »

Beating women will bring them to goodness

Over on The Daily Blog Keith Locke thinks the way to solve the problem of Islamic terrorists in New Zealand is to talk to them and dissuade them from their Jihad.

For some strange reason he is of the opinion that fanatics can be reasoned with. Since no one has ever been successful in persuading Keith Locke to be a National Voter I am gob-smacked that he thinks it is even remotely possible to change a fanatics belief system. He goes on about our civil rights being affected by our governments fight against terrorism yet the only even remotely possible way to change a fanatic would be to take away their rights, incarcerate them and then try to indoctrinate them. Indoctrination from childhood often is how they got that way after all.

Keith also totally ignores the threat of the adults already here as his ‘ solution ‘ focuses only on the youths heading in that direction. If we remove the adults who are peddling the hate then how are the youths going to be affected? You must attack the root of the problem.

The Prime Minister claims there is a growing threat from New Zealanders attracted to Islamic State and he wants to increase state powers to watch such people and take away their passports.

I believe there is a better way to discourage would-be jihadists than the state enacting measures that erode the civil liberties of all New Zealanders.

Rather than go down the punitive route, wouldn’t it be better if the government worked with a willing Islamic community to educate any youths who might be heading in an extremist direction. Punitive measures will further alienate such men and lead them to hide their plans. In other words, it will be counterproductive.

-Keith Locke

Meanwhile in the UK the kind of people Keith thinks can be talked out of their extreme beliefs have successfully infiltrated public schools and universities.

Cat videos revealed as key recruitment tool for ISIS terrorists

Join ISIS or the cat gets beheaded next!

Join ISIS or the cat gets beheaded next!

Good to see the UN taking a break from chastising NZ for having worse child poverty than Romania, which strangely hasn’t shown up in the emigration stats as Kiwi parents rush off for a better life.

Catastrophic climate change reports are getting a little embarrassing and being kept quiet while some UN envoy has a hunt around to see if someone has found some somewhere, anywhere.

So the experts at the UN thinks foreign jihadis are joining medieval beheaders because they post fluffy kitten pics on the Internet.

Foreign jihadists from more than 80 countries have flocked to fight in Iraq and Syria on an ‘unprecedented scale’, according to extracts of a UN report.

Around 15,000 people have travelled to fight alongside Islamic State (ISIS) and other hardcore militant groups from ‘countries that have not previously faced challenges relating to Al Qaeda,’ it said.

The study found a new breed of terrorist was being attracted by the extremist group’s ‘cosmopolitan’ use of social media, pointing to examples when jihadists posted ‘kitten photographs’ on Twitter.   Read more »

Support Terrorists? Find yourself liable for their attacks

A US court has found Arab Bank guilty of aiding and abetting terrorism for helping launder Hamas money and helping to finance acts of terror.

A U.S. jury on Monday found Arab Bank Plc liable for providing material support to Hamas and said it must compensate victims of two dozen attacks attributed to the Islamic militant group in Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Jurors needed less than two days of deliberations to reach their verdict after a six-week trial in Brooklyn federal court, which lawyers described as the first terrorism financing civil case to reach trial in the United States.

A trial on damages will be held later. Similar lawsuits are pending in New York against Bank of China Ltd, which is accused of providing services to Palestine Islamic Jihad, and Credit Lyonnais SA, which is accused of aiding Hamas. Those banks have denied the respective allegations.

Nearly 300 Americans who were either victims or related to victims of attacks linked to Hamas had sued Arab Bank in 2004.

They accused the Jordanian bank of violating the Anti-Terrorism Act, a law that lets victims of U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organizations such as Hamas seek damages.

“It has been a long haul,” said plaintiff Maida Averbach, 76, who said her son was paralyzed from the neck down in a 2003 suicide bombing and died in 2010 from complications. “Unfortunately my Steve isn’t here.” Averbach spoke to reporters by phone.

Arab Bank said it would appeal. In a statement, the bank said the verdict “comes as no surprise” after a series of what it considered legally incorrect court rulings that kept it from mounting a proper defense, and effectively “put Hamas on trial.”

The bank also said the verdict exposes banks such as itself to “enormous liability” for providing routine banking services.

Shand Stephens, a lawyer for Arab Bank, predicted that the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals “is going to reverse this.”

Mark Werbner, a lawyer for some of the plaintiffs, said the verdict sends a message that “when a bank opens its doors to terrorists, they’re going to be held accountable.”

Should have double tapped him

An Al Qaeda operative is having a sook about being tasered, blindfolded and bundled into a vehicle as he was kidnapped by Delta Force troops in Tripoli.

Boo hoo, he’s lucky to be alive.

They should have just double tapped him and saved the effort.

Swarmed, Tasered, and trundled into a vehicle blindfolded—and that was just the beginning for alleged al Qaeda member Abu Anas al-Liby. Now he’s complaining about his treatment.

Poor little jihadi!

Just listen to the accused al Qaeda operative Abu Anas al-Liby recount how he was treated by men who suddenly swarmed him outside his home in Tripoli as he returned from morning prayers last October.

“I was Tasered in both my legs and hands,” he says at the start of a tale told in an affidavit unsealed this week in a motion to suppress incriminating statements about his alleged complicity in the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.

He rightly assumes that his captors were members of the U.S. Army Delta Force. He recalls that one of them spoke to him in English with an American accent:

“We know you can understand us, just keep quiet.”

He was then trundled into what he says was either a minivan or an SUV.

“[I] had ear muffs placed over my ears, my eyes were blindfolded, and I was placed in handcuffs,” he reports.    Read more »

Andrew Sullivan on Islam, jihadists and western apologists

Andrew Sullivan comes up with a brilliant explanation of Islam, jihadists and western apologists like Ben Affleck.

he made these comments in response to the video of the Bill Maher/Ben Affleck debate.

I think it’s pretty indisputable that any religion that can manifest itself in the form of something like ISIS in any period in history is in a very bad way. I know they’re outliers – even with respect to al Qaeda. But, leaving these mass murderers and sadists to one side, any religion that still cannot allow its own texts to be subject to scholarly and historical inquiry, any religion that denies in so many parts of the world any true opportunities for women, and any religion whose followers believe apostasy should be punished with death is in a terrible, terrible way. There is so much more to Islam than this – but this tendency is so widespread, and its fundamentalism so hard to budge, and the destruction wrought by its violent extremists so appalling that I find Affleck’s and Aslan’s defenses to be missing the forest for the trees.  Read more »

We actually don’t need UN permission to attack ISIS

There is a great deal of huffing and puffing from terrorist loving politicians and commentators.

They don’t want us to go deal to the ISIS terrorist scumbags and want some sort of UN mandate.

The only problem with that sort of b.s. is that we actually don;t need UN mandates, ISIS is not a country they are a band of rampaging thugs and we can deal to them any time we want with or without a UN mandate.

In the UK the same types of terrorist huggers are saying the same things.

MPs who vote tomorrow on whether to go to war with Isis will not have the security blanket of a UN Security Council resolution, so it is important to understand why, as a matter of international law, they do not need it.

They are not being invited to overthrow the regime of a sovereign state, which they wrongly decided to do in the case of Iraq in 2003, or to support a feckless reprisal bombing of Syria, which they rightly rejected last year. Isis is a group of international criminals, committing war crimes and crimes against humanity with genocidal intent, and the right – arguably the duty – to protect their victims does not depend on Russian approval in the Security Council.

Isis has been killing innocent civilians because of their religion and issuing blood-curdling incitements to kill “all non-believers”.  They have been executing without trial, recruiting children as soldiers, taking and killing hostages.  They are, in the Latin phrase used in international law, hostis humanis generis, the enemies of humankind.  As with the pirate, torturer and slave trader, no UN approval is necessary for law-abiding states to use force against such barbarity.

But our complicity in the invasion of Iraq has cast a long shadow; Ed Miliband, for example, has evinced a “preference” for a Security Council resolution.  This is unnecessary and in fact undesirable – action in humanitarian emergencies should not be vulnerable to the veto of the Chinese, or of President Putin.  A resolution was necessary for the invasion of Iraq – a sovereign state where there was no basis for humanitarian intervention. President Bush expressly excluded this justification for his (and our) war.  As for last year’s proposal to bomb Syria, it was a one-off punishment reprisal of questionable legality and doubtful purpose and it was sensibly rejected by Parliament (and people).

Is there any difference (as some MPs seem to think) in the legitimacy of bombing IS in Iraq (which has expressly invited the coalition to do so) and bombing it in Syria?  This is a pettifogging point – going to war should not depend on technicalities (the US justified the Vietnam war on the basis that it had been “invited in” by the puppet government of South Vietnam).  In any event, Syria has not complained and its consent to the attack on its most dangerous enemy can be inferred.  The real question for Parliament tomorrow is whether the attack on Isis is lawful and, if so, whether it is right.   Read more »
