Islamist Terrorism Map in USA

The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) is a non-profit research group founded by Steven Emerson in 1995. It is recognized as the world’s most comprehensive data center on radical Islamic terrorist groups. For more than a decade, the IPT has investigated the operations, funding, activities and front groups of Islamic terrorist and extremist groups in the United States and around the world. It has become a principal source of critical evidence to a wide variety of government offices and law enforcement agencies, as well as the U.S. Congress and numerous public policy forums. Research carried out by the IPT team has formed the basis for thousands of articles and television specials on the subject of radical Islamic involvement in terrorism, and has even led to successful government action against terrorists and financiers based in the United States.

 

 

St. Pancake and other expressions

Yesterday JoeSettler referred to Rachel Corrie as St. Pancake.

It can’t be stressed enough she was a terrorist enabler who hated Israel and America and died trying to protect Hamas smuggling tunnels (and protect Hamas’s weapons smuggling operations). She was the definition of a useful idiot (Not a LGF term but coined by Lenin).

 

I assumed it was his term (I’ve heard her referred as «Pancake girl» before) I «googled» it and discovered it was coined on the Little Green Footballs blog (back when it was great and hadn’t fallen out with other conservative bloggers). In the early days of the blogosphere though LGF was the best, most popular and most interesting pro-USA pro-Israel website. It was truly amazing at its height and Charles Johnson and his readers can be credited with coining a glossery of Right-wing terms popular today. Here is the Little Green Foodballs Dictionary highlights;

 

Terms that Originated on LGF

.
anti-idiotarian — Someone who has his or her head screwed on straight politically; generally used to refer to anyone who grasps the significance of and does his or her best to combat the post-9/11 political alliance between the «Old Left» and militant Islam. [First documented use: Charles 1/5/2002 5:21 PM ]
.
Arafish — Disparaging reference to Yasser Arafat, based on his resemblance to a fish in some pictures. When Arafat was alive, Charles frequently posted photoshopped images of Arafat as a fish spouting inanities and lies.
.
bigelate / anything bigel-derived — 1. To drop nuclear bombs on; 2. To disrupt a calm thread with an extreme post. Based on the nickname of former LGF poster bigel, who was well known for advocating the «Samson Option,» in which Israel, after having been decimated by nukes delivered by Muslims (either Iran, Pakistan or stateless terrorists), retaliates with its own nuclear arsenal against Europe, as punishment for facilitating and helping to create the Islamic Bomb. The term also referred to the disruption of a thread by bigel in which he expresses unforgiving hatred of European culture and its history of anti-Semitism. (His opinions were apparent even in his very first LGF comment.) Bigel has since been banned from LGF (apparently for malfeasances unrelated to his nuke-themed comments), but his name and reputation linger on nonetheless.
.
Bwahahaha/Muwhahaha! — An onomatopeiac evil laugh as said by members of the lizardoid Zionist conspiracy (satirically) acknowledging their global power. (The generic term «Bwahahahaha» obviously predates LGF by many decades [possibly originating in early comic books or pulp novels], but its use in this specific setting is more closely LGF-based.) [First documented use of Bwahahaha: Jeff B. 4/16/2002 06:21PM PST] [First documented use of Muwhahaha: Charles 8/27/2002 07:49AM PST]
.
car swarm — A peculiar Palestinian custom of swarming around a car which had recently held Palestinian extremists but which was then blown up by Israel in a targeted killing of the terrorists inside. Often, thousands of Palestinian men will swarm around the destroyed vehicle, looking to retreive bits of flesh from the incinerated «martyrs.» The bodily remains are then paraded around in triumph. Charles generally posts any new car swarm photos as soon as they appear.
.
Fiskie — An award originated by Charles, designating the single person in any calendar year who most clearly exhibited the personality traits of BBC reporter Robert Fisk (who, after being kidnapped by Afghan extremists, expressed sympathy for them and their cause and famously declared, «If I were them, I’d have beaten me too.»); or, more generally, who was the year’s most unrepentant idiotarian. Voting on the Fiskie takes place every year in January. Previous winners have included Jimmy Carter and Rachel Corrie. (See also the LGF FAQ.) [The award was originated by Charles in this post on 12/19/2002; originally it was merely called «LGF Idiotarian of the Year Award»; after complaints from LGFers that nominee Robert Fisk was in a league by himself and was sure to win, Charles updated his post, dropping Fisk from the nomination yet changing the name to «The Robert Fisk Award for Idiotarian of the Year»; but neither of these titles made use of the term «Fiskie.» On that same thread, Susan first used the word «Fiskie,» though she was not referring to the award but rather to the man himself; it was actually Bill Whittle near the end of the thread who first used the term «Fiskie» to refer to the award.]
.
FNDT — Friday Night Drinking Thread. A thread posted by Charles late in the day on a Friday, hopefully on a light-hearted topic, where minions gather to swap gossip, jokes, commiserate (if necessary), and occasionally indulge in drinking games. [First documented use: really grumpy big dog Johnson 6/4/2004 06:43PM]
.
GAZE — To glare with silent disapproval at a troll who has intentionally attempted to derail a topic. A sign of non-acknowledgment of a particularly offensive or inflammatory post, and a sign to other commenters not to «feed the troll» (pay attention to a disruptive commenter). Usually written all capitals. [First documented use: sub_version 4/17/2003 03:04PM]
.
JfnK — John «fuckin'» Kerry. A reference to his propensity for swearing at and blaming his underlings when he embarrasses himself in public.
.
L3ogic — The type of logic used by the LLL; in other words, illogic. [First documented use: 12/16/2003 09:24AM PST]
.
LFG — An inversion of the acronym LGF, mistakenly first used by a deranged commenter who was speculating on LGF’s sinister powers. It was immortalized in a cartoon by Cox & Forkum (notice the shoulder patches), and is now used mockingly by lizardoids when sarcastically play-acting as moonbats.
.
lizardette — a female lizardoid (see below). Used infrequently. [First documented use: Smit 8/22/2003 06:59AM PST]
.
lizardoid — a lizardoid is a devoted follower of and commenter on Little Green Footballs; it can refer to either gender. Further exploration of the «lizard» references can be found on the LGF FAQ. The first use of «lizardoid» on LGF was by Throbert McGee, 1/31/2003 11:01AM PST, though it did not refer to LGFers. The term acquired its current meaning from this classic posting [Charles, 11:02 AM PST].
.
minion — (as applied to blog-followers) Essentially the same thing as a lizardoid; perhaps with an extra emphasis on the commenters’ devotion to pro-LGF and anti-idiotarian online activism. [First documented use: Spiny Norman 5/15/2003 07:03PM PST]
.
Morlocks — Originally borrowed from H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine, «Morlocks» in an LGF-sense refers to idiotarians and other ill-informed anti-LGFers. One of Charles’ rotating headers says «to Morlocks, as Morlocks are to Eloi,» a further reference to The Time Machine implying that lizardoids are on the food chain on the level above Morlocks — hence, we feast on their gamy buttocks. The term was popularized by this LGF thread.
.
Nazimedia — Disparaging appellation for Indymedia, an extreme leftist activist site that often drifts into fascistic thinking. [First documented use: Damian Penny 4/10/2002 11:47AM PST]
.
Oil Ticks — The Saudi royal family, and other Saudi aristocrats who, like ticks, drain their country’s oil wealth.
.
PIMF — Preview Is My Friend. Offered by way of apology for posting a misspelling or typo, and failing to use the «preview» function provided by Charles in the comments field. Usually used in self-deprecation. [First documented use: Right Wing Conspirator 12/2/2003 02:47PM, referring to an earlier post in which it was spelled RIMF]. A little-used variant, employed when a poster is proud of his or her typo, is PIFW — Preview Is For Wimps.
.
PIYF — Preview Is Your Friend. The inverse of PIMF, used (jokingly) to point out someone else’s typo. [First documented use: Right Wing Conspirator 3/16/2004 06:43PM]
.
Religion of Pieces — Mocking reformulation of President Bush’s absurd declaration that Islam is a «Religion of Peace.»
.
St. Pancake — Disparaging nickname for Rachel Corrie, a American activist who voluteered to help Palestinian militants in their attacks on Israel; she was killed after being crushed by a Israeli bulldozer while «defending» Palestinian smuggling tunnels. She was subsequently beatified by the extreme left, and in mockery of her new holy status, LGFers dubbed her «St. Pancake,» in reference to the manner of her death.
.
splodydopes — Suicide bombers, particularly Palestinian suicide bombers. A contraction of «exploding dopes.» Coined by LGFer Jim Treacher in a posting on April 15, 2002.

Palestinian official policy is for future State to be a Jew-free zone. The world yawns.

Q. “How do you know when a Palestinian Spokesperson is lying?”

A. “His mouth’s moving.”

In an interesting interview with Palestinian «Ambassador» to the USA (I’m pretty sure thats thanks to an upgrading of the Palestinian Mission by Obama [America’s next worst ex-President]) in Tablet here. Some criticise the Tablet in the comments section for allowing the interview but I think its wonderful to see exactly just how bad the Palestinian official positions really are. The are literally Judeophobic; denying a Jewish historical link to the land and calling for a «Judenrein» Palestine.

It is amazing what the Palestinians can get away with. Liberman calls for a logical border change from the 1948 «green line» so that the maximum number of Arabs are in Palestine and the maximum number of Jews are in Israel and is called a Nazi for it and persona non grata in much of Europe. Meanwhile Palestinians call for much worse and are embraced by Euro-Dhimis.  The Western world’s elites basically expect Palestinians to be barbaric and so except this kind of anti-semitism from them therefore our media, academics, politicians say nothing when the Palestinians openly call for a Jew-free Palestine or actually put these words into action such as in Jordan where Jews are not allowed to own land or be citizens and obviously in Gaza where no Jew may live openly alive. Maen Areikat must be related to Saeb «Jenin Massacre» Erakat because he is also a born liar. I bet he’s a cousin, the Palestinians like all good mafia gangs are controlled by only a couple of clans (Al Barghouti, Al Husseini etc). Amongst the lies and dishonesties he promotes;

He refuses to say that there was a Jewish Temple.

Fundamentally he refuses to agree to recognising Israel as a Jewish State.

He says Israel stared the 1948 War when in fact it was the Arabs that invaded the fledgling Jewish State.  He also ignores that the Arabs were already given 78% of the Palestine Mandate in 1921 called “Transjordan.”

Crucially he calls for the explosion of all Jews from  “Palestine” when asked;

“Any Jew who is inside the borders of Palestine will have to leave?”

“Absolutely.”

He also lies about the Palestinians living up to their obligations eg to Stop incitement in their school textbooks etc.

He admits he plays both sides of the Israeli political spectrum against the other.

I’m not condoning the firing of rockets. All that I’m saying is, these rockets hurt the Palestinians more than they hurt Israel. And we as a Palestinian leadership have adopted a strategic option of non-violent resistance.”

The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades appears not to have gotten the Fatah Memo here’s a Murder by them in 2010. You can bet if there was no Security Fence impeding Suicide Bombers they would revert right back to violence. Read the interview yourselves!!

America’s future President gets elected to Congress

Allen West has been elected to congress to the US House of Representatives;

In another striking move against creepy (that of course should read «creeping» but its such a wonderful Freudian slip I’m going to leave it. I often write these late at night and so sometimes don’t edit them very well!)  Sharia Islamic law has been banned in Oklahoma! A landslide against the Democrats prove that Obama’s policies of appeasement to Islamic radicals, cultural relativism and post-American Presidency have discredited him in the eyes of the American people. I’m just going to say it; «I told you so!»

 

 

 

Gabriel Latner is a legend

Cambridge University held a debate singling out Israel (of course) asking «Is Israel a rogue state.» One of the debaters (selected to argue the positive) flipped the whole thing around in a legendary fashion. In doing so he earned a lifetime ban from the Cambridge Union (boo friggin’ hoo).

 

Gabriel Latners full speech;

This is a war of ideals, and the other speakers here tonight are rightfully, idealists. I’m not. I’m a realist. I’m here to win. I have a single goal this evening – to have at least a plurality of you walk out of the ‘Aye’ door. I face a singular challenge – most, if not all, of you have already made up your minds.

This issue is too polarizing for the vast majority of you not to already have a set opinion. I’d be willing to bet that half of you strongly support the motion, and half of you strongly oppose it. I want to win, and we’re destined for a tie. I’m tempted to do what my fellow speakers are going to do – simply rehash every bad thing the Israeli government has ever done in an attempt to satisfy those of you who agree with them. And perhaps they’ll even guilt one of you rare undecided into voting for the proposition, or more accurately, against Israel. It would be so easy to twist the meaning and significance of international ‘laws’ to make Israel look like a criminal state. But that’s been done to death. It would be easier still to play to your sympathy, with personalised stories of Palestinian suffering. And they can give very eloquent speeches on those issues. But the truth is, that treating people badly, whether they’re your citizens or an occupied nation, does not make a state’ rogue’. If it did, Canada, the US, and Australia would all be rogue states based on how they treat their indigenous populations. Britain’s treatment of the Irish would easily qualify them to wear this sobriquet. These arguments, while emotionally satisfying, lack intellectual rigour.

More importantly, I just don’t think we can win with those arguments. It won’t change the numbers. Half of you will agree with them, half of you won’t. So I’m going to try something different, something a little unorthodox. I’m going to try and convince the die-hard Zionists and Israel supporters here tonight, to vote for the proposition. By the end of my speech – I will have presented 5 pro-Israel arguments that show Israel is, if not a ‘rogue state’ than at least ‘rogueish’.

Let me be clear. I will not be arguing that Israel is ‘bad’. I will not be arguing that it doesn’t deserve to exist. I won’t be arguing that it behaves worse than every other country. I will only be arguing that Israel is ‘rogue’.

The word ‘rogue’ has come to have exceptionally damning connotations. But the word itself is value-neutral. The OED defines rogue as ‘Aberrant, anomalous; misplaced, occurring (esp. in isolation) at an unexpected place or time ‘, while a dictionary from a far greater institution gives this definition ‘behaving in ways that are not expected or not normal, often in a destructive way ‘. These definitions, and others, centre on the idea of anomaly – the unexpected or uncommon. Using this definition, a rogue state is one that acts in an unexpected, uncommon or aberrant manner. A state that behaves exactly like Israel.

The first argument is statistical. The fact that Israel is a Jewish state alone makes it anomalous enough to be dubbed a rogue state: There are 195 countries in the world. Some are Christian, some Muslim, some are secular. Israel is the only country in the world that is Jewish. Or, to speak mathmo for a moment, the chance of any randomly chosen state being Jewish is 0.0051% . In comparison the chance of a UK lotto ticket winning at least £10 is 0.017% — more than twice as likely. Israel’s Jewishness is a statistical abberation.

The second argument concerns Israel’s humanitarianism, in particular,Israel’s response to a refugee crisis. Not the Palestinian refugee crisis – for I am sure that the other speakers will cover that – but the issue of Darfurian refugees. Everyone knows that what happened, and is still happening in Darfur, is genocide, whether or not the UN and the Arab League will call it such. [I actually hoped that Mr Massih would be able speak about this — he’s actually somewhat of an expert on the Crisis in Darfur, in fact it’s his expertise that has called him away to represent the former Dictator of Sudan while he is being investigated by the ICC.] There has been a mass exodus from Darfur as the oppressed seek safety. They have not had much luck. Many have gone north to Egypt – where they are treated despicably. The brave make a run through the desert in a bid to make it to Israel. Not only do they face the natural threats of the Sinai, they are also used for target practice by the Egyptian soldiers patrolling the border. Why would they take the risk? Because in Israel they are treated with compassion – they are treated as the refugees that they are – and perhaps Israel’s cultural memory of genocide is to blame. The Israeli government has even gone so far as to grant several hundred Darfurian refugees Citizenship. This alone sets Israel apart from the rest of the world.

But the real point of distinction is this: The IDF sends out soldiers and medics to patrol the Egyptian border. They are sent looking for refugees attempting to cross into Israel. Not to send them back into Egypt, but to save them from dehydration, heat exhaustion, and Egyptian bullets. Compare that to the US’s reaction to illegal immigration across their border with Mexico. The American government has arrested private individuals for giving water to border crossers who were dying of thirst – and here the Israeli government is sending out its soldiers to save illegal immigrants. To call that sort of behavior anomalous is an understatement.

My Third argument is that the Israeli government engages in an activity which the rest of the world shuns — it negotiates with terrorists. Forget the late PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat, a man who died with blood all over his hands – they’re in the process of negotiating with terrorists as we speak. Yasser Abed Rabbo is one of the lead PLO negotiators that has been sent to the peace talks with Israel. Abed Rabbo also used to be a leader of the PFLP- an organisation of ‘freedom fighters’ that, under Abed Rabbo’s leadership, engaged in such freedom promoting activities as killing 22 Israeli high school students. And the Israeli government is sending delegates to sit at a table with this man, and talk about peace. And the world applauds. You would never see the Spanish government in peace talks with the leaders of the ETA – the British government would never negotiate with Thomas Murphy. And if President Obama were to sit down and talk about peace with Osama Bin Laden, the world would view this as insanity. But Israel can do the exact same thing – and earn international praise in the process. That is the dictionary definition of rogue – behaving in a way that is unexpected, or not normal.

Another part of dictionary definition is behaviour or activity ‘occuring at an unexpected place or time’. When you compare Israel to its regional neighbours, it becomes clear just how roguish Israel is. And here is the fourth argument: Israel has a better human rights record than any of its neighbours. At no point in history, has there ever been a liberal democratic state in the Middle East- except for Israel. Of all the countries in the Middle East, Israel is the only one where the LGBT community enjoys even a small measure of equality. In Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, and Syria, homosexual conduct is punishable by flogging, imprisonment, or both. But homosexuals there get off pretty lightly compared to their counterparts in Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen, who are put to death. Israeli homosexuals can adopt, openly serve in the army, enter civil unions, and are protected by exceptionally strongly worded ant-discrimination legislation. Beats a death sentence. In fact, it beats America.

Israel’s protection of its citizens’ civil liberties has earned international recognition. Freedom House is an NGO that releases an annual report on democracy and civil liberties in each of the 195 countries in the world. It ranks each country as ‘Free’ ‘Partly Free’ or ‘Not Free’. In the Middle East, Israel is the only country that has earned designation as a ‘free’ country. Not surprising given the level of freedom afforded to citizens in say, Lebanon- a country designated ‘partly free’, where there are laws against reporters criticizing not only the Lebanese government, but the Syrian regime as well. [I’m hoping Ms Booth will speak about this, given her experience working as a ‘journalist’ for Iran,] Iran is a country given the rating of ‘not free’, putting it alongside China, Zimbabwe, North Korea, and Myanmar. In Iran, [as Ms Booth I hoped would have said in her speech], there is a special ‘Press Court’ which prosecutes journalists for such heinous offences as criticizing the ayatollah, reporting on stories damaging the ‘foundations of the Islamic republic’ , using ‘suspicious (i.e. western) sources’, or insulting islam. Iran is the world leader in terms of jailed journalists, with 39 reporters (that we know of) in prison as of 2009. They also kicked out almost every Western journalist during the 2009 election. [I don’t know if Ms Booth was affected by that] I guess we can’t really expect more from a theocracy. Which is what most countries in the Middle East are. Theocracies and Autocracies. But Israel is the sole, the only, the rogue, democracy. Out of every country in the Middle East, only in Israel do anti-government protests and reporting go unquashed and uncensored.

I have one final argument – the last nail in the opposition’s coffin- and its sitting right across the aisle. Mr Ran Gidor’s presence here is the all evidence any of us should need to confidently call Israel a rogue state. For those of you who have never heard of him, Mr Gidor is a political counsellor attached to Israel’s embassy in London. He’s the guy the Israeli government sent to represent them to the UN. He knows what he’s doing. And he’s here tonight. And it’s incredible. Consider, for a moment, what his presence here means. The Israeli government has signed off,to allow one of their senior diplomatic representatives to participate in a debate on their very legitimacy. That’s remarkable. Do you think for a minute, that any other country would do the same? If the Yale University Debating Society were to have a debate where the motion was ‘This house believes Britain is a racist, totalitarian state that has done irrevocable harm to the peoples of the world’, that Britain would allow any of its officials to participate? No. Would China participate in a debate about the status of Taiwan? Never. And there is no chance in hell that an American government official would ever be permitted to argue in a debate concerning its treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. But Israel has sent Mr Ran Gidor to argue tonight against [a ‘journalist’ come reality TV star, and myself,] a 19 year old law student who is entirely unqualified to speak on the issue at hand.

Every government in the world should be laughing at Israel right now- because it forgot rule number one. You never add credence to crackpots by engaging with them. It’s the same reason you won’t see Stephen Hawking or Richard Dawkins debate David Icke. But Israel is doing precisely that. Once again, behaving in a way that is unexpected, or not normal. Behaving like a rogue state.

That’s five arguments that have been directed at the supporters of Israel. But I have a minute or two left. And here’s an argument for all of you – Israel willfully and forcefully disregards international law. In 1981 Israel destroyed OSIRAK – Sadam Hussein’s nuclear bomb lab. Every government in the world knew that Hussein was building a bomb. And they did nothing. Except for Israel. Yes, in doing so they broke international law and custom. But they also saved us all from a nuclear Iraq. That rogue action should earn Israel a place of respect in the eyes of all freedom loving peoples. But it hasn’t. But tonight, while you listen to us prattle on, I want you to remember something; while you’re here, Khomeini’s Iran is working towards the Bomb. And if you’re honest with yourself, you know that Israel is the only country that can, and will, do something about it. Israel will, out of necessity act in a way that is the not the norm, and you’d better hope that they do it in a destructive manner. Any sane person would rather a rogue Israel than a Nuclear Iran.
