That’s it boys, just keep on digging…

ISIS Black Flag Brigade

The American invasion presented Mr. Baghdadi and his allies with a ready-made enemy and recruiting draw. And the American ouster of Saddam Hussein, whose brutal dictatorship had kept a lid on extremist Islamist movements, gave Mr. Baghdadi the freedom for his radical views to flourish.

U.S. Actions in Iraq Fueled Rise of a Rebel

I must admit that I nearly gave out the cockney rebel cry of “Go on my son” when I saw the West continuing to fail in it’s opposition to ISIS on the one hand and its support of the puppet-masters of Palestine on the other. Surely, hypocrisy hath no bounds…

Don’t get me wrong, I support neither one, nor the other – but the fact that the likes of Barrack Obama and David Cameron think that they can split hairs over Islam just demonstrates that they are so mired in their own hypocrisy that they can’t see it even when it is pointed out to them. The emperors new clothes and then some…

For those who have no veil over their eyes, we recognize that there is no such thing as fundamentalist Islam or liberal Islam, there is only subservience to the teachings of the prophet and that is lock, stock and barrel – from the 5-a-day kowtowing to butchering babies and Jihad. Anyone who tries telling you different is either an apologist or deluded and most liberals are both.

So I am fully supportive of the horrors of ISIS, because if Cameron, Obama and the rest of the Western elite continue to evade reality in the pursuit of votes and liberal support, they will quite quickly find that reality gives them a big, fat kick up the arse and if that happens to be from the new Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, then all the better.

There is a simple rule in life, either learn the easy way or be taught the hard way, I suspect the new Caliph has a pretty good idea which way that is going to be.

    JG, so why do you live in a majority Muslim country despite being gay? What are you doing pushing your $ their way?

  2. NickM says:

    And i cannot support anything about ISIS. Anyone who buries kids alive needs to be JDAMed.

    Well as of August 1st I’m living in a semi-detached house in the suburbs of Nijmegen in the Netherlands – so my jizya payments to the not particularly Islamic Federation of Malaysia have been somewhat lacking of late.

    I didn’t choose to be gay any more than I went out of my way to marry a Chinese Malaysian Buddhist, it’s just shit that happens on the way…

    …you know…life.

    According to Dr Richard North http://www.eureferendum.com/blogview.aspx?blogno=85140

    it seems that ISIS, far from being unstoppable, are about to get the shit kicked out of them.

  5. John Galt says:

    I never said that ISIS were unstoppable, rather I wondered how far there atrocities would be allowed to go before Obama and Cameron did more than wringing their hands and talking dull platitudes about liberal Islam.

    As usual we are seeing far too little far too late and it looks like it will be left up to the secular and Muslim forces of the territories that have been overrun by ISIS that will have to clean it up, which is fair enough I suppose, but Barry O’Bama does seem to be taking his duties as “World Policeman” (neither requested, nor required) with the usual balance of politics and American interests.

    When the new Caliph takes over an oil refinery, gas terminal or pipeline – I bet we’ll see lots of action then.

    I’m sure SAOT will be here any minute to says it’s all the Jews fault..

  7. John Galt says:

    Although I don’t personally agree with SAoT on the “plight” of the Palestinians, I would in no way describe him as an anti-Semite (as in “it’s all the Jews fault” – Johnnydub)

    It’s perfectly possible to separate the children of Israel from the state of Israel and SAoT is at pains to point out that it is the State of Israel (as defined by its politicians and members of the Israeli Defence Force) against whom he takes issue.

  8. Single Acts of Tyranny says:

    Indeed JG.

    For the hard of thinking, this is an anti-murder video, not an anti-semitic one

  9. NickM says:

    I don’t like your phrase, “hard of thinking”. It is deeply patronising. Israel may not be perfect (where is?) but dear Gods it knocks the Hell’s Bells out of the craptics of the neighbours. Israel is Western. and that is good. And if you chuck rocks at soldiers what do you expect. War is not about playing nice, it is about playing to win. In Levenshulme, Manchester I once had some scrotes chuck rocks at me and my wife and if I’d had a gun they would have rapidly become ex-scrotes. As it turned out I didn’t so my wife had her nose broken (which needed surgery) and I got bust ribs. The only solution to aggressive violence is to astonish with your violence. Israel has and good on ‘em for that. That is how you end wars. Worked against Japan in ’45.

  10. John Galt says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it a again, this “plight” of the Palestinians is bullshit. The rest of the Arab world and particularly Hamas have hung them out to dry for the media attention, exactly the CNN video’s that SAoT seems to have developed a fetish for.

    I’m not saying the dead bodies of kids are faked, they tend not to be, but much of what is shown to the world’s news media is staged. The above video doubly-so.

    In truth the Palestinians should be up in arms against those who entrap them and it ain’t Israel, it’s all the Arab states around them. It is only because the Palestinians are puppets that Hamas effectively controls the ‘government’ and kills anyone who might lead them down the path of sensibleness (i.e. peace with Israel, a UN recognised Palestinian state and a normalisation of the situation), because what the fuck would Hamas do then?

  11. Single Acts of Tyranny says:

    Nick. I was referring to those who regard me as anti- semitic. As JG kindly pointed out, there is a vast difference between anti Zionist and anti Semite. Those who can’t grasp this from my previous points may indeed wear the nomenclature you object to ( though to be clear I was not including you in their number).
    I am so sorry some arseholes threw rocks at you and your wife, vile an cowardly behaviour. I would never have convicted you if I were on the subsequent jury but I think there are some significant differences between idiots living on Manchester and those in the west bank

  12. NickM says:

    JG,
    I agree entirely. I thought that for years. The Palestinians are essentially besieged by both a mind-set and failed states. Failed in the sense (to a large extent) that they repeatedly failed to take-out Israel. Terrible thing – an inferiority complex Especially when Allah has promised you the stars.

    SAoT,
    My point was that being stoned is scary and if you have a gun you’ll use it regardless of whether it is Manchester or East Jerusalem. You can kill or blind with a well-aimed rock but the media portrays these youths as “scamps” in much the same way they might report a case of apple scrumping. The fact that the Israelis are better armed is seen as a moral evil hence terms like “disproportionate response”. What would be proportionate? Chucking rocks back at ‘em – the David’s sling approach? Or is that disproportionate? What is also forgotten is most of these Israeli troops are young – almost as young as the average rock-chucker. They are scared. Because they are young and fit and all and they don’t desire death they are scared. The terrorists do. We can see this with ISIS – almost utterly nihilistic and totally Amok.

    As Theoden put it, “What can men do against such reckless hate?”

    And to come to the fundamental issue. Being anti-Israel is so very close to anti-semitic I can’t put a ciggie paper between the two. Israel exists and has to defend itself against hordes of barbarians. That is simple fact. So back to what JG said. The Palestinians are the sacrificial lambs on the altar of Arab states successive failures to commit genocide. And they are now imploding under the weight of their own hubris.

    PS. Anyone want to buy c.50 pottery dinosaurs?

  13. Single Acts of Tyranny says:

    I was at a wedding reception where a Jewish girl married a guy called Mohammed about three years ago, (I know it sounds unreal, but it’s true) and I met some recent IDF conscripts. Having met them, the Palestinian failure to roll up these guys in about ten minutes is bewildering.

    So I get they are scared. But a response to rocks (an immediate response, not a political solution) is tear gas, water cannon, baton rounds as necessary. Throwing a rock at a guy in a helmet and body armour is not a capital crime.

    But you are making a terrible mistake. You are conflating kids who hate political oppression, with ISIS nihilists. Some probably are, many aren’t. And it’s not right to kill them.

    “Being anti-Israel is so very close to anti-semitic”

    Then you better have a chat to the Rabbi presiding over the Jewish part of the ceremony. He was a most interesting chap from San Francisco. We knocked off a couple of bottles of quite nice red and he talked about the whole scenario. Whilst he took the side of the Israelis, he could certainly see that eventually, at some point, the killing will have to stop. We both bemoaned the fact that no Jewish or Arab Ghandi or Mandela, or MLK had emerged.

    There is a solution down the road somewhere, and we will walk over corpses to get there, best it be fewer than more. You know, as I do that both Hamas and Likud will deliver more death, and that’s just a cul-de-sac.

    And as to the anti-semitic stuff, Mohammed and Yocheved* spent the last 36 hours at chez SAoT with their two children, so please, no more of that. It’s prpfoundly insulting and dead wrong.

    (* Ironically, they were visiting Peppa Pig world (sic) and I don’t live too far away)

    And to come to the fundamental issue. Being anti-Israel is so very close to anti-semitic I can’t put a ciggie paper between the two. Israel exists and has to defend itself against hordes of barbarians. That is simple fact.

    Let’s the old logical argument challenge and reverse the situation to see if it still makes sense. I would argue that being a Semite does not equate to being pro-Israeli any more than being anti-Israeli makes you an anti-Semite.

    There are a whole lot of Jews both in Israel and without that don’t particularly like the policies of the Israeli government or the actions of the Israeli Defence Force, so to say there is only a cigarette paper between the two is just hyperbole.

    The Jews came to Israel seeking a homeland where they would not be oppressed and the waves they came in (post-WW2, communist-era, new economic model, etc.), so they were right to escape and I believe right to seek to make a nation out of nothing, because only as a sovereign nation could they protect themselves against those who would destroy them (as they have repeatedly tried over the centuries). The fact that the Palestinians got the thin end of the wedge is unfortunate, but could have been made to work if it hadn’t been for the sowers of discord such as Hamas and also during the cold war era, the petrels of Muscovy.

    A lot of these returned Jews are questioning whether their commitment to an Israeli state is worth the cost and some are even going back to the countries from which they fled in the first place, to find a future for themselves and their children.

    Israel’s anxiety as Jews prefer Germany

    So no Nick, the State of Israel ain’t “The Jews” and “The Jews” ain’t the State of Israel – not by a long chalk. There are more Jews living in the United States than there are Jews in Israel.

    I love the heading picture of all the hard men waving pistols about as though they knew how to use one (none are showing proper stance and one idiot has his two pistols pointing at different targets). That is what is called a target rich environment; one grenade or a single 30 round magazine and all the monkey-boys are dead.

    There is a lot of good sense being talked here, but that strikes me as being one of the most bigoted comments I have heard in a long history of internet troll-hunting.

    No religion works like that, simply because religions are made up of people, not books. To believe there can’t be a liberal Muslim because they never had a Martin Luther is patronising and illogical. In fact, we’ve lately seen rather a lot of liberal Muslims in the news. Mostly fighting or running away from ISIS terrorists. Their liberality is why ISIS is killing them.

  17. NickM says:

    Uncle Gus,
    Right. Absolutely right. In a way it is worse in that Martin Luther was a literalist. In a sense ISIS are are deranged Islamic reformation just as ML’s were. In a sense. Sort of.

  18. John Galt says:

    Uncle Gus, so I’m a bigot! Whoop-di-do! sticks and stones, etc.

    I seem to remember that particular word cost Gordon Brown the 2010 Election – as for myself, sure you can say my views are bigoted, you can say that my views don’t represent the reality of life, all of which would be fair comment.

    I am correct though that the only way ‘liberal Islam’ exists is by ignoring or attempting to explain away the teachings of the prophet which they are meant to be bound to and in submission of.

    Old Mo the Pedo was pretty explicit about his beliefs and those who follow what many describe as ‘radical Islam’ (to me it’s just ‘Islam’) are those who follow the words of the prophet literally rather than trying to fit it into the context of modern society.

    This is why Islam must be exterminated in it’s entirety, because it is incompatible with Western society and Western values.

    Horse hooey. The Israelis have had at least one guy who puts Gandhi, Mandela, and The Other Saint in the shade. Fella name of Menachem Begin….

    The peace treaty between Egypt and Israel was signed sixteen months after Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat’s visit to Israel in 1977 after intense negotiation. The main features of the treaty were mutual recognition, cessation of the state of war that had existed since the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, normalization of relations and the complete withdrawal by Israel of its armed forces and civilians from the Sinai Peninsula which Israel had captured during the Six-Day War in 1967. Egypt agreed to leave the area demilitarized. The agreement also provided for the free passage of Israeli ships through the Suez Canal, and recognition of the Strait of Tiran and the Gulf of Aqaba as international waterways.

    The agreement notably made Egypt the first Arab state to officially recognize Israel.[1]
