In the few remaining days before the mid-term elections next week, there is not much to do to help Obama’s camp other than to rely on stunts that are far beyond reason.
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” brought together two people who I would’ve never though I would see on the same stage – the washed-up Satanic guy Ozzy Osbourne and the washed-up terror worshipper Cat Stevens, a.k.a. Yusuf Islam.
Well, for Ozzie Satanism has always been a prop to help his gigs and let him sell more records.
For Cat Stevens, supporting Muslim terrorism has always been the meaning of his life (at least after his conversion). I wonder if Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have already forgotten that after Homeini the Psychopath sentenced Salman Rushdie to death (for his book Satanic Verses), Cat Steven fully supported his fatwa and said that death is what you get for blasphemy against Islam.
It’s hard to believe that a pious Muslim like Yusuf Islam would appear onstage with such a horrible creature like Ozzy (although the opposite is true), but anything goes when you try to support the “Annointed One” when he is on the verge of the biggest Democratic loss in years.
Yes, nobody appreciates anymore Barack Hussein Obama, so maybe the joint forces of Satanism and Islamism would help him.
More on this insane rally here:
American Power: Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear — UPDATED!!
In November of this year we will mark the 20th anniversary of the assassination of Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York. The fact that he is not forgotten and that his life and work still produce strong emotions of admiration in his supporters and hatred in his enemies is a testimony to the power of his personality.
JDL-Canada organized a memorial in his honour on October 26. It began with a prayer for Rabbi Kahane and a reading of quotes from his speeches and writings, which are still relevant. He had a simple message that was rooted in reality, he believed that Israel should remain a Jewish state in order to survive.
In an emotional presentation, Meir Weinstein, the National Director of JDL-Canada, summarized the work of Rabbi Kahane. He created the Jewish Defence League, which with its practical work has contributed to the Jewish cause more than many other personalities and organizations (like the Nazi hunters for example). In the early years of Israel, the young Jews knew what they were fighting for. Later, other people thought that they would have a better chance if they try to achieve Israel’s goals through diplomacy. Because of that, Kahane was ostracized, his road was lonely, but later the reality showed that it was the true road.
The tiny piece of land where modern Israel is located is one of the most disputed territories in the world. From the late Roman Empire through the crusades in the Middle Ages to the modern-day conflicts, dozens of different countries, movements and religions had clash in order to take control over it.
It is nearly impossible for a side observer to figure out who is right and who is wrong. Due to the ill political will of many sites involved in those conflicts, it is hard to dig out the truth hidden in obscure documents and forgotten meetings and conferences. This thankless task has been pursued for years by Salomon Benzimra, a tireless researcher whose new presentation titled Restoring Factual Evidence in the Middle East Conflict, took place at the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies (Toronto) on October 25, 2010.
It was an event organized by Canadians for Israel’s Legal Rights (CILR) founded by Goldi Steiner, who was also present. The hall was fully packed with listeners eager to hear the truth on the Middle East. Read the rest of this entry »
Rob Ford is the new mayor of Toronto!
It is not a surprise for those of us who supported him all the way, from the first uncertain months of his campaign when nobody believed in him to the last days when the mainstream press still insisted that he was still “neck in neck” with Smitherman.
Well, that shows how much our world is distorted by journalists.
Rob Ford won by a landslide, with 50% of the votes of a 50% voter turnout (as opposed to a 36% turnout in the previous election).
It was a loss for the flamboyant metrosexuals who thought that the tax-paying masses are too unsophisticated to know how to spend their own money.
It was a loss for those who thought that you could spend all your life mooching money off of those who work and make them feel guilty for not giving you enough.
It was a loss for the unkempt socialists who will be more than willing to send all our money to any bunch of non-working savages somewhere in the world.
But of course Ford will still need our support and we should keep watching his back, those who oppose him are already quite vocal about what they are going to do against him.
In a discussion panel at CityTV tonight they went out of their way to collect people who were direct in their intentions to stop him. Olivia Chow said that Ford has hard time collaborating with other people (translation: we at NDP will do everything to sabotage you).
Rocco Rossi and Warren Kinsella appeared next to each other (and Rocco didn’t try to strangle Kinsella!).
Somebody from the panel said that Ford must make any financial agreements with McGuinty’s government before their term expires, another one responded that they are going to lose the elections anyway.
Kinsella’s sharp reaction was: “That’s mythology. The Liberals are fine.”
What a wonderful response! If he sees the provincial Liberals’ catastrophic position in such rosy colours, we can only hope that they will entrust him with their re-election. Judging from his disastrous management of Rocco Rossi’s campaign, we can only hope that with his help we can rid of MacGuinty much faster.
Now, THAT will really help Rob Ford.
When I though I had seen everything concerning the arrogance and insensitivity of (some?) Muslims, I found something that surpassed my worst impressions.
It happened thanks to an “outstanding” company named Zabrina’s, which according to its website sells “Traditional Clothes and other Fine Goods from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia, as well Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries.”
The company is called Zarina’s. A look at their catalog shows that the “fine goods” they promote are ugly, cheap-looking Muslim-themed junk, which is far below kitsch level. The message of some of it could be easily interpreted as hate speech, but since they are located in California, I guess they can get away with it under the First Amendmend (of course, Christians are not entitled to the same protection).

WARNING! GRAPHIC PHOTO BELOW
In its Friday’s issue The Globe and Mail, the self-proclaimed national newspaper of Canada, published an “opinion” piece by Sheema Khan titled Niqab Rage: Beyond the Veil in Canada’s Courtrooms. Since the paper won’t publish my opinion about it, I’ll have to place it here.
That’s an article in the series supposed to show the diversity of our country. And Ms. Khan clearly expresses that diversity, for starters, her hijab is prominently displayed in her picture, beside that, her opinion is no less diverse.
She starts with the description of a “shocking” case in France. In a department store a 63-year-old retired teacher named Jeanne Ruby approached Shaika al-Suwaidi, a veiled Arab woman, and asked her to remove her veil. When she refused, Ruby chased her and ripped off her niqab, slapped her and scratched her. Then she said: “Now I can see your face.”
There have been other isolated cases like this (statistics show that attacks against Muslims are rare), but Ms. Khan has carefully picked this one. Why? The Jewish last name “Ruby” fits neatly into the traditional “progressive” paradigm: a rabid and mean Jew attacks again a quiet and helpless Arab. Of course, she doesn’t state it explicitly, but the lefties and the Muslims reading are not going to miss the association.
From this case Ms. Khan makes a conclusion that in my opinion puts her in the category of bigots: “While Ms. Ruby may be a heroine to many in the land of liberté, égalité, fraternité and beyond, her actions mirror those of extremists who throw acid into the faces of women who refuse to wear the niqab.” Read the rest of this entry »
On Wednesday, October 21, Juan Williams was fired from his job as a political commentator at the National Public Radio (NPB). They did that to him to express their condemnation for a short comment he made on Fox News on Monday night (he works as a commentator for that network as well).
This is exactly what he said (talking to Bill O’Reilly):
“I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot…But when I get on a plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they’re identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous”
He was informed that his comments were not consistent with the views of NPB. After that the woman who rules NPB (Schiller) went as far as to state publicly that opinions of this sort should be kept between him and his psychiatrist.
Almost everybody who has seen Williams on Fox can attest to the fact that he is a likable and thoughtful person. Some of his opinions are much more to the left than I can bear, but he is entitled to them and he definitely doesn’t need a psychiatrist. Read the rest of this entry »
Raphaella Segal, Assistant Mayor of Kedumim, gave a talk at the Toronto Zionist Centre, October 19, 2010. Kedumim is an Israeli settlement located in the so called West Bank.
Meir Weinstein from JDL-Canada introduced the speaker. In his short introduction he mentioned that the people like Raphaella have worked under unbelievably harsh conditions to build modern communities, schools, agriculture and industry. He stated that the word “settlement” is not a good term, it implies that Israel is moving to other people’s territory and that land actually belongs to Israel (you can get much better idea about the legal status of Israel from Salomon Benzimra’s research on the topic).
There is no doubt that the problem with the settlements has been distorted for many years. If you believe the Arabs and the “progressives”, the average Israeli settler is a huge man with a long beard and a big black hat. He lives in a large house stolen from the Arabs and probably keeps Palestinian children caged in the basement. He doesn’t work because he receives an unlimited supply of money secretly provided by the Illuminati. His only job is to roam the hills armed with his Uzi machine gun and kill defenceless Palestinians.
As usual, the truth is different. The settler we saw was a petite woman with a charming smile (and without a gun). She is ordinary in almost every way, except for her passion about her country, which came out of almost every word she spoke. Raphaella Segal was born in South Africa, her parents brought her to Israel as a child. One of the founding members of Kedumim, she has 9 children, 7 of which are married, and over 30 grandchildren (despite that, she still looks young).
Last week I attended a lecture organized by the Speakers Action Group and the Canadian Jewish Civil Rights Association. Prof. Richard Cravatts’s presentation was titled The Campus War against Israel and dealt with the rising anti-Semitism in the American and Canadian universities.
Prof. Cravatts has a very successful career teaching marketing and advertising at the Boston University. He has the classical academic look, thoughtful and logical in his speech and is impeccably dressed Yet he has chosen to follow the thankless task of exposing hatred (publishing over 300 articles on anti-Semitism), which makes him hated in many circles, a position that he would have avoided if he stuck to his original career.
On the other hand, have you heard about the coal mine canary? Long time ago the mining workers would carry down into the mine caged canaries. If poisonous gases leaked into the mineshaft, the gases would kill the canary before killing the miners.
So what is the link between these two things? Is Cravatts the coalmine canary? Yes, to some extend, but there is much more to that metaphor, which makes it much more disturbing. We will come back to it, but let’s first see what Richard Cravatts had to say.
According to the latest news (more here and here), the Culture Minister of the Muslim-Croat federation in Bosnia has revoked Angelina Jolie’s permit to shoot a movie in his country. That project was supposed to be her directorial debut.
Her movie would have been another chapter in the anti-Christian propaganda produced to glorify the civil war in that pseudo-country. It turns out that her script wasn’t pro-Muslim enough.
From what is known about the script, the major plot concerns a love story between a Bosnian Muslim woman and her Serbian rapist. Such a story borders on science fiction and it is very unlikely to happen in reality.
However, from Angelina’s proven lefty pojnt of view, it would have been a nice mushy story, which not only glorifies the Muslims, but also shows that they are a bunch of noble and forgiving people.
The real Bosnian Muslims though don’t want to be pictured in such a forgiving light. The coalition of Bosnian women fiercely opposed the movie. They will be much more satisfied, if Angelina Jolie keeps the tradition of the US and European Left and shows the Serbs as disgusting devils.
Of course, they would be much more satisfied if she shows the love between a Muslim woman and an Arab Mujahedeen. There were thousands of them to fight the Christian infidels (encouraged by the support of the West) and they delivered an exemplary ethnic cleansing by shooting and beheading thousands of Serbs.
We probably just had another honour killing in Canada, this time in Quebec. A 71-year old Muslim father killed his 13-year old daughter, she died after he allegedly slapped her. You can read more about the case here and here.
This is the fourth murder of such type in a relatively short period of time, after Aqsa Pervez’s honor killing near Toronto, the quadruole murder in Kingston (ON) and the Chechen murder in Calgary.
As usual, Canada’s leftist media are going out of their way to belittle the Islamic element in the murder. Despite that, some facts have emerged in interviews with the neighbours. They describe the father as a rude and demanding person who frequently yelled at his wife and children. Read the rest of this entry »
Perhaps you’ve already heard that, Canada’s bid to win a seat at the United Nations Security Council came to an end. Canada’s UN Ambassador John McNee announced it as soon as it became obvious that Portugal was sure to collect the votes necessary to secure the seat. The press didn’t forget to mention that this was the first time in the history of the Council when Canada could not get a UN position it ran for.
It was ironic that the rich and powerful Canada was “outsmarted” by Portugal, a small and nearly bankrupt European nation. In my opinion (which I will explain below) that loss wasn’t a bad thing. However, the loss reveals some very ugly political realities in Canada, which need to be addressed. Read the rest of this entry »
It was reported about a week ago that about a week ago a Catholic priest and 12 Filipinos have been arrested in Saudi Arabia for proselytizing.
In case people in the civilized country think that they were walking around to hand out Bibles and convert the local Arabs, we should emphasize that nothing like that happened. The Saudi fanatics from the Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, a well respected government body, arrested them at a house.
According to the report, the Vice Police raided the house, because it was tipped off that a Catholic Mass was being held there. Over 150 “expatriates” were found there and they arrested only 13 because the police station couldn’t accommodate more people.
That’s it. That’s the crime. A group of Christian people gathered to conduct a peaceful religious service and they were charged with proselytizing. No Arabs were involved…
Of course, this looks totally absurd, but in the twisted world of the Muslim barbarians of that country, it is perfectly normal.
Saudi Arabia is one of the major advocates for Muslim religious rights in non-Muslim countries. They build mosques, finance organizations, which often work against the countries that accepted them. In every case of perceived intolerance those fanatics yell and threaten until they impose their way (look no further than Holland and Denmark for examples).
Yet, when it comes to the rights of people of other religions in Saudi Arabia, they are treated worse than animals.
The Muslim tolerance is more than touching…
Here is a funny video with George Galloway (who recently visited Toronto). The ex-member of the British Parliament, pathetic Big Brother participant, fanatical supporter of Muslim terrorism and a darling of the progressive dimwits is seen here being yelled at by Judge Judy.
If this could happen in reality, it would’ve been really priceless…
A new episode of the never ending soap opera of Israeli bashing has been unveiled. As usual, an event, which would have been considered trivial in any other country, is blown out of proportion by Israel’s critics.
The issue concerns the new Loyalty Oath, which the country’s cabinet is planning to introduce. The ministers passed the bill, but it still has to be approved by the parliament to become a law.
The oath will require the new non-Jewish citizens to pledge allegiance to a “Jewish and democratic” state. Even though the pledge hasn’t been introduced yet, it already attracts severe accusations of racism from the Arabs and the leftists. Read the rest of this entry »
Lars Vilks, the “controversial” Swedish cartoonist, who showed a dog with Mohammed’s head in one of his works, thus causing a world-wide Muslim hysteria, visited Toronto last week. It was a rather sad event, because out of four events scheduled in North America, only the one in Toronto wasn’t cancelled. Little bit later I am going to explain why I found sadness in it.
The presentation was fascinating, Lars Hedegaard from the Danish Free Press Society appeared together with Vilks. The event was unlike anything that I have previously attended in my life. It was little bit scary, because for starters, the cartoonist came with six large, not very friendly guards dressed in black suits, who dispersed around the hall and tensely observed every move of the audience. In addition to that, the JDL members kept their own watch, starting with checking everybody with a metal detector. Then they continued patrolling around the building.
I am not going to cover the event in detail, the Canadian blogger Scaramouche has already done it in such detail that I highly recommend that you read his post on the topic.
I only want to comment on why I think this event was sad. Read the rest of this entry »
George Galloway is back in Canada. The fiercely Marxist ex-member of the British Parliament gave a speech yesterday in Toronto. Although last year he found himself in trouble when the Government of Canada challenged his eligibility to enter the country due to his support for a terrorist group, now Galloway is bolder and more militant than ever.
The carefully sanitized account of his speech covered by The Canadian Press left out many statements that were loudly applauded by his audience: he still supports Hamas but in slightly different way; Canada is a vicious and extremist country; the Arabs in Gaza are dying of starvation; Israel is committing systematic ethnic cleansing in Jerusalem; the only good Jews are those who are against their own country; the only solution to the Israeli-Arab conflict is the creation of a single Arab-dominated country.
More on Galloway’s presentation later… Let’s say more about the event and its organizers. It took place at the Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church on Bloor/Spadina, a well known haven of the Annex “progressives”, it’s not clear whether it is still a real church, judging from the events they regularly organize there.
The following is an interesting case of what happens when a good-meaning liberal goes beyond the bleeding-hard phraseology and tries to actually help the poor “victimized” people. A recent article in Jyllands-Posten (H/T Fivefeeotfury) tells the story of Michelle Hviid, a good-hearted Danish leftist, who tried to make a difference in the lives of the predominantly Muslim immigrant population in Denmark.
Few years ago she came up with the idea to move into one of the largest Copenhagen ghettoes. To be fair to the Danish authorities, they didn’t designate the area as a ghetto, where they wanted to isolate the “poor” immigrants. They had the noble intention to provide affordable housing to those people, but as it always happens, giving something for nothing to those who are hostile to the West and refuse to adapt, turned the area into a hotbed of crime.
So Michelle decided to help those people by starting an initiative of sharing a meal with the ghetto’s inhabitants. She organized nearly 1,500 Danes willing to do that in the name of mutual understanding. However, the other side wasn’t that responsive, only about 500 of the Muslims were willing to take part.

The Gypsy issue has been widely discussed in France over the last few weeks. The French government decided to expel over 1,000 illegal Gypsies residing in numerous camps in different parts of the country.
It was just announced that the European Union plans to sue France over the alleged violation of their rights. Since the majority of the Gypsies, who are being deported are citizens of Bulgaria and Rumania (both members of the Union), the Union officials claim that the French authorities prevent the free movement of the European citizens.
The lefties of all colors and persuasions are on the same bandwagon as well. They have demonstrated against the deportation accusing the French of discrimination against a specific ethnic group.
Is there any merit to those accusations or the legal threats?
