David Cameron show how gutless he really is

David Cameron epitomises the problems the West have in dealing with Islamic terrorism…gutlessness.

David Cameron today called on the BBC not to use the phrase ‘Islamic State’ when referring to the terror group operating in Iraq and Syria.

The Prime Minister – who calls the group ‘ISIL’ – said Muslims would ‘recoil’ at the phrase being used to justify the ‘perversion of a great religion’.

He insisted that the battle against extremists targeting Britons around the world can be won but will require ‘extraordinary resolve and patience’.

Gunman Seifeddine Rezgui targeted tourists at the Tunisian beach resort of El Kantaoui near Sousse on Friday morning, killing 38 people including up to 30 British tourists.

It makes it the worst terror attack on Britons since the July 7 London bombings in 2005.

Hakim Rezgui, the father of the gunman, last night claimed extremists had ‘ruined his son’s brain’.    Read more »

Are you getting the message yet? Because they sure are sending one

So, are you getting the message yet?

These are not lone wolf attacks, they are part of the Islamic assault on Western civilisation.

If you aren’t getting the message then you aren’t paying attention.

The massacre on a Tunisian beach resort that left at least 39 dead followed a chilling threat from ISIS that ‘Ramadan will have lots of surprises’.

ISIS yesterday claimed responsibility for the deadly shoot out, as well as the attacks in France, Kuwait and northern Syria in a day of terror.

The killings came on Friday, Islam’s holy day, and came after a call by the terrorist group for attacks by ‘Muslims everywhere’ during Ramadan.

A spokesman for the murderous organisation promised ‘tenfold’ reward in paradise for those who targeted ‘the kuffar’ (unbelievers) during the holy month.

The attacks also come a year since ISIS announced a self-declared caliphate, which led to a wave of barbaric killings by the group.    Read more »

Face of the day

Today’s Face of the day is a man of courage, a man who stood for freedom of expression, a man who persisted in the face of danger. His body guard was not able to save him or the others at his newspaper. I honour him, and them today and I challenge us all to not let their deaths be in vain. We too must be brave. We too must stand strong against this worldwide threat against the freedoms that we hold so dear.

Thicko Islamic hackers take down UK bus time-table website

The site name sounds impressive…Travel West…at least to thicko Islamic hackers who mistakenly thought it would disrupt all travel in Western nations.

Except it turns out that the site is a bus timetable site for Poms living in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

Muslim extremists hoping to disrupt international travel across the Western world fell a little short of their goal when they hacked into a Bristol bus timetable instead.

A group calling itself, Darkshadow – an Arab Security Team – mistakenly hijacked TravelWest’s journey planner website and replaced it with a sinister Islamic State-style black page.

It is thought the cyberterrorists, who claim to be based in Tunisia and the Ivory Coast, believed that by hacking TravelWest, they were infiltrating a major international travel website for Europe and the United States.

West Country locals, who logged onto the site expecting to find the usual bus and train timetables, cycle routes and traffic updates, were taken aback to discover that all information had been replaced by Arabic text and the stark message: “Hacked by Darkshadow”.

Has Kim Dotcom ever watched Star Wars?

Kim Dotcom tweeted this yesterday, proof positive that he is from the dark side.

Of course Star Wars is heavy with Nazi references.

The stormtroopers from the movies share a name with the Nazi stormtroopers (see also Sturmabteilung). Imperial officers’ uniforms also resemble some historical German Army uniforms (see Wehrmacht) and the political and security officers of the Empire resemble the black clad SS down to the imitation silver death’s head insignia on their officer’s caps. World War II terms were used for names in Star Wars; examples include the planets Kessel (a term that refers to a group of encircled forces), a Chancellor as the leader, and Hoth (Hermann Hoth was a German general who served on the snow laden Eastern Front) and Tatooine (Tatouine – a province south of Tunis in Tunisia, roughly where Lucas filmed for the planet. Libya was a WWII arena of war). The Great Jedi Purge alludes to the events of The Holocaust, the Great Purge, the Cultural Revolution, and the Night of the Long Knives. In addition, Lucas himself has drawn parallels between Palpatine and his rise to power to historical dictators such as Julius CaesarNapoleon Bonaparte and Adolf Hitler. The final medal awarding scene in A New Hope, however, references Leni Riefenstahl’s Triumph of the Will.

And Darth Vader’s helmet is a lot like the German WWII helmets.

No wonder Kim Dotcom likes to think that MEGA is the Death Star…it certainly fits with his so far unreleased song which talks of “World Domination, Nation by Nation” and his belief that the “World is His“.  Read more »

Jihad we can all believe in

This is the kind of jihad I can believe in:

[M]embers of Ukrainian feminist group Femen staged protests across Europe as they called for a “topless jihad.” The demonstrations were in support of a young Tunisian activist named Amina Tyler. Last month, Tyler posted naked images of herself online, with the words “I own my body; it’s not the source of anyone’s honor” written on her bare chest. The head of Tunisia’s “Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice,” reportedly called for Tyler to be stoned to death for her putatively obscene actions, lest they lead to an epidemic. Tyler has since gone quiet, leading some to fear for her safety.

Below are some images from Femen’s protests in Sweden, Italy, Ukraine, Belgium, and France. A warning, nearly every photo depicts nudity, and most contain offensive language. I did warn you so don’t go moaning in the comments about it.  Read more »

Syria civil war because of climate change?

Climate Change has been blamed for many, many things. The list is extensive.

Now we can add Syria’s civil war to the list as being blamed on climate change.

What next…blaming gay marriage on climate change as well?

Did anyone notice that an idiot dictator controlled the country and everyone got sick of him?

Breaking the no rooting rule in Tunisia, with his cousin

Breaking the no rooting rule in sport or ion politics usually gets you in big trouble…but even more trouble if you do it in Tunisia with your cousin:

A SCANDAL involving abuse of public money and gossip of adultery would be bad enough in ordinary times. Just now, though, Tunisia happens to be in the throes both of an imminent cabinet reshuffle and a budget crisis. The state of the country’s finances led some economists to suggest last week that the government would fail to pay salaries in January. Worse, the minister at the heart of the affair is not only a top figure in the Nahda Party, the long-persecuted Islamist group that helped overthrow the corrupt dictatorship of Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali two years ago and now leads the country’s ruling coalition. He is also married to the daughter of its widely revered chief, Rachid Ghannouchi.

Nothing has been proven, but Rafik Abdesselem, Tunisia’s minister of foreign affairs, is having a tough time explaining himself. His troubles started on December 26th, when a popular blogger, Olfat Riahi, published what appeared to be copies of hotel bills from last year that had been issued in the minister’s name and paid by his ministry, oddly enough by way of Tunisia’s embassy in Ethiopia. The hotel in question is one of the Tunisian capital’s fanciest, the Sheraton, a large hilltop structure that happens to be across the street from Mr Abdesselem’s office.  Read more »
