Violent Extremism is No Virtue

President Obama has convened a Summit 0n Countering Violent Extremism to break the code of  why they hate us.

State department spokesperson  Marie Harf explains we can’t kill our way out of this war. We need shovel ready jobs.

Update: I changed the cutline on this one. I wanted to use it in the first place but didn’t think anybody would get it. But now that Harf’s comments have gone viral here it is – a Bokbluster exclusive.

National Prayer Breakfast

150210-national-prayer-breakfast

Every year about this time there’s a pious politician public event called the National Prayer Breakfast.

Two years ago Dr. Ben Carson made his political debut there. The soft spoken brain surgeon insulted President Obama by ordering off the menu and choosing health savings accounts instead of ObamaCare. Now the good doctor is contemplating his own run for the president’s seat at the table.

At last year’s breakfast, after trying to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to buy birth control and morning after pills, Obama droned about religious freedom.

This year he made headlines providing the insight that Crusaders killed in the name of religion 1000 years ago. Not only that, Christians were responsible for Jim Crow.

 

 

Got to See a Man About a High Horse

150207-high horse

A couple weeks ago Bob Menedez compared President Obama’s threat to veto any sanctions on Iran to “talking points that come straight out of Tehran”. Our philosopher king’s prayer breakfast lecture on Thursday could have been mistaken for talking points straight out of the Islamic State. He called on Christians to get off their high horse about man burning ISIS jihadis. He then reminded them that Crusaders did bad things in the name of Christ. A thousand years ago.

Ralph Peters will take two centuries of Crusades against “14 centuries of slaughtered, enslaved, raped, and oppressed Christians who endured Islam’s endless jihad” any day.

Charlie Hebdo

150107-charlie-hebdoThe cartoon on the drawing board is the same one that appeared on the cover of an issue of the French satire mag Charlie Hebdo. Twelve people including cartoonists and editors were murdered by Allahu Akbar screaming barbarians at a Charlie Hebdo editorial meeting. No one was water boarded.

As with the Danish Cartoon Crisis, Few media outlets have published the offending cartoons. Score another one for the terrorists. The Israeli paper Haaretz and Drudge Report are exceptions.

After French president Hollande called the murders an act of terrorism President Obama agreed. There was no mention of Islamic terrorism.

The Vatican called it a double attack on people and a free press.

In a New Year’s day speech the president of Egypt, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, actually criticized the Muslim world for condoning terrorism.

It’s inconceivable that the thinking that we hold most sacred should cause the entire umma [Islamic world] to be a source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world.

Eric Holder says we’re a nation of cowards. And so we are.

But not for the reasons he thinks. It’s not because we won’t stand up for the liberty of the minority. We won’t even stand up for our own liberty of the majority.

Here in the politically correct West we are free to mock Jesus and Jews but not The Prophet of Islam.

In 2012 President Barack Hussein Obama told the UN, ” the future must not belong to those who slander The Prophet”.

Want to throw shit on the Virgin Mary? Knock yourself out.

Well, some cartoonists in Paris gave it a go anyway. They had the balls to slander the Prophet. The future does not belong to them. They are dead.

They should have dumped dung on Mary.

Today, as after the Danish Cartoon Crisis, mainstream media outlets are not publishing the cartoons. We have found the cowards. They are us.

Is the Caliphate Islamic?

Is the Pope Catholic?

President Obama says the Islamic State isn’t Islamic. The Washington Post says “Americans disagree” and has nifty charts and polls to prove it. Daniel Pipes disagrees too. The Middle East scholar says ISIS is “100% Islamic”.

Dennis B. Ross says, in the NYT, that ISIS is Islamist and “Islamists are not our friends”.

What the Islamists all have in common is that they subordinate national identities to an Islamic identity.

Peggy Noonan (click The Genocide of the Mideastern Christians – WSJ) says the Islamic State is “de-Christianising the Mideast where Christianity began”.

An estimated two-thirds of the Christians of Iraq have fled that country since the 2003 U.S. invasion. They are being driven from their villages in northern Iraq. They are terrorized, brutalized, executed. This week an eyewitness in Mosul, which fell to Islamic State in June, told NBC News the jihadists were committing atrocities. In Syria, too, they have executed Christians for refusing to convert.

Update: John Kerry is putting “the real Islam out there”.

Andrew Wilson in The American Spectator calls Obama’s claim “the grossest nonsense”.

Under Mohammed, Islam began as a religion of conquest. A commitment to wage jihad or holy war and to “smite the necks” of unbelievers has been part of Islam from the earliest days. In the 100 years following Mohammed’s death in AD 632, when Islam was still confined to the Arabian peninsula, Arab armies spread the faith as far west as Spain and as far east as northern India and the frontier of China.
