Do I want to offend anyone? No I don’t. Is it necessary that I do? Yes, yes it is.
Why am I sticking this up you may ask? After all, no recent violence. No recent overt demands that we submit.
So why am I being deliberately offensive? Because it is my bloody right to do so, that’s [...]
So what are we up to in Mali?
I have never seen a more rapid and openly disingenuous escaltion ever. First it is a couple transport planes, then it’s a surveillance plane (but no boots on the ground - honest), then it’s “training” and it’s allowing tankers to operate from British airfields but still we’re [...]
The Israeli air-force has c.100 F-16I Soufa (Storm) Vipers (nobody uses the official name “Fighting Falcon” because that is camper than a scout jamboree). These are block 50/52 F-16s (the USANG flys block 15s) which have been tricked with conformal tanks and additional Israeli ‘tronics and integration with Rafael and Elbit weapons and systems such [...]

Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.’
When taking office, the President does not swear to create jobs. He does not swear to ‘grow [...]
Though some members of the Jewish, Christian, Hindu, and Buddhist faiths were reportedly offended by the image, sources confirmed that upon seeing it, they simply shook their heads, rolled their eyes, and continued on with their day.
New incident, same old riot.
Six die as police open fire at crowd protesting against burning of Quran in Ghaziabad
I suppose you’ve all heard about the appalling attacks on the US Embassy in Cairo and the Benghazi consulate. The obvious reason that the Benghazi attack is bigger news is the murder of the US Ambassador and three other staff. Both attacks of course were apparently precipitated by a movie on Youtube. I shall [...]
If you’ve been paying attention over the last few years, it is clear how the elite see the rest of us. We are little more than farm yard animals to be cajoled and compelled and banned from doing things, lectured and hectored at will, and above all taxed. We maybe shot if it suits the government [...]
This was meant to be satire.
Not accuracy in reporting.
If only they were all this easy:
Mohammad Ashan, a mid-level Taliban commander in Paktika province, strolled toward a police checkpoint in the district of Sar Howza with a wanted poster bearing his own face. He demanded the finder’s fee referenced on the poster: $100.

Is this a minor issue in the UK, or is it building into some sort of fuss?
A church has been banned from using a market stall to hold its weekly outreach service following a complaint about “hate-motivated” leaflets published by the group.
The Norwich Reformed Church held a weekly outreach bookstall from the Norwich City Council-owned [...]
There is much muntering at the UN (do they do anything else other than munter and appoint Libya as head of Human Rights?) about a prospective Palestinian State.
Now I have no axe to grind but it just won’t work and that really has nothing to do with Israel. The culture, geography (and changing that [...]
So, if you are a Muslim, and you are also paranoid about a hypothetical anti-Muslim sentiment having been stirred up by previous Islamic violence, then you can get away with a whole lot these days:
A MUSLIM terror suspect who wounded a policeman in a gunfight escaped conviction on serious shooting charges after a judge found [...]
On Saturday this caper is takng place in my old stamping ground of London E1:
It is of course organised by the Popular Front of Judea Hizb ut-Tahrir. Now these are nasty but essentially harmless in terms of their stated aim because a global Islamic caliphate is not going to happen. I know about this shindig [...]
