The founder of a Buffalo New York Islamic television station which set out to present Muslims in a positive light walked into a police station last week and
This is what the morally sick Muslim world calls an "honor" killing. And this is what the morally sick liberal world prefers not to know -- and not to have anyone know. Imagine if a Christian TV station owner had beheaded his wife.
You think that might be all over the headlines; or that Keith Olbermann might name him "the worst person in the world." But mum's the world when Muslim sickos commit atrocities -- particularly against their favorite targets: women and Jews. And it's a hate crime for you if you mention that this is a widespread custom in the Muslim world. . . .
"Honour killing" triggers row in US [small as it is, it's better than nothing---DOB]
Pakistani-American entrepreneur Muzzammil Hassan founded Bridges TV in New York in 2004 to counter stereotyping of Muslims. On Thursday, he walked into a police station and reportedly told them he had beheaded his wife.
The incident has kicked off a stormy debate about what role religion played in the brutal slaying. Rights activists [do they mean those darn fool people who keep saying that is was Muhammad who told his followers it was best to cut people's heads off"?]
have termed it an "honor killing" and blamed extremist interpretations of Islam for the beheading.
Muslim activists [do they mean those groups like CAIR that keep trying to hide the fact that Muhammad said it was best ot cut people's heads off?]
though condemned what one academic called "exploitation of her (Aasiya's) death by others with an agenda of vilifying Islam and demonizing Muslims . . .

THE WHITE HOUSE, January 27, 2009
I've been hearing about since 1/27; some say we're about to get millions of Palestinians here and you and I will pay for their upkeep, and others say no, this only means we're going to be giving the Hamas-controlled Palestinians aid money from what the Israelis did to them during their "assault" on Gaza. Either way, this is, at best, extraordinarily irresponsible of Prez BHO, and at worst, another step toward delivering the U.S. into the hands of Islam.---DOB

Geert Wilders and the Fight for Europe
Does defending Western values constitute "inciting hatred"?
By Bat Yeor
Geert Wilders is the latest victim of this enormous world machinery. . . .
Britain has just witnessed the spectacle of a duly elected parliamentarian from another EU country, Geert Wilders of the Netherlands, being denied entry to the country because he constituted "a threat to public policy." Wilders, after being detained briefly at Heathrow, was sent back to Holland - where he has further legal troubles. . . .
Gitmo detainee: 'I do pose a threat'
In a small room at Guantanamo Bay, plain white except for an American flag hung on the wall, Abdul al Rahman al Zahri sat shackled in front of three military officers at a hearing to determine whether he continued to pose a threat to the United States and its allies.
Zahri, a Yemeni captured in Afghanistan in 2001, was clear on that point: "I do pose a threat to the United States and its allies," he said, according to a transcript of the 2006 hearing. "I admit to you it's my honor to be an enemy of the United States. I am a Muslim jihadist, and I'm defending my family and my honor." . . .

"Islam in America's Classrooms: History or Propaganda?"
from Brigitte Gabriel:
I'm delighted to announce that the Mission Viejo (California) chapter of ACT!for America, in partnership with the United American Committee, have just completed a concise, well-documented, readable report on how Islam is being presented in our public schools.
In this report you'll learn how the violent history of Islam is beingwhitewashed in our public schools, how the claims of Islam are presented as facts, and how students are required to participate in activities such asmemorizing verses from the Qur'an. . . .
Hamas On Campus
from ACT! for America
If further proof was needed that the field of Middle East studies is marred by a politicized, morally vacuous approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict, the reaction of many of its leading lights to the current war in Gaza should suffice.According to these self-appointed arbiters of international law, Israel's military campaign against Hamas following the firing of over 6,000 rockets at Israeli civilian targets since 2005 is unjustified. Hamas, they tell us, is not a terrorist organization bent on Israel's destruction, but rather a national liberation movement that seeks only the noble founding of a Palestinian state. Either that or its leaders, all evidence to the contrary, can be negotiated with and cajoled into moderation. They insist Israel recognize that Hamas was democratically elected in 2006, even as they deny any responsibility on the part of Gazans for electing a terrorist government. . . .
German Primary Schoolers Get Textbook on Islam [Right, like they don't get enough of it at home or in the mosques ---DOB]
"My Book About Islam" is the first schoolbook on the Muslim faith to be approved for young children in Germany. The authors hope it will help foster understanding by dispelling myths about the followers of the Koran.
"The point of the book is to foster the religious identity of Muslim children in a country that is predominantly Christian so they don't wind up being manipulated by the media, and not just the media, but perhaps even by their own mosque or community

Anti-terror code 'would alienate most Muslims'
Draft strategy brands thousands as extremists
Ministers ponder plan to be unveiled next month
The government is considering plans that would lead to thousands more British Muslims being branded as extremists, the Guardian has learned. The proposals are in a counterterrorism strategy which ministers and security officials are drawing up that is due to be unveiled next month.
Some say the plans would see views held by most Muslims in Britain being classed by the government as extreme. . . .
And some would say that's just common sense at work.---DOB
