Three Indian engineers among six killed in Khost: Taliban
The Afghan Taliban on Wednesday claimed to have killed six people, including three Indian engineers, in Mandozai area of the Khost province.

A senior Taliban commander, who wished not to be named, called The News from an undisclosed location and claimed they blew up a pick-up truck, carrying three Indian engineers and their two Afghan security guards and a translator to the site.

He said the Indian engineers were working on the India-sponsored Rs 100 million Khost-Kabul Road. "We had warned them earlier through local tribal elders not to work on the road project as by doing so they would be helping the US forces in strengthening their roots in Khost province," remarked the Taliban commander.

He said his men had planted an improvised explosive device to hit the latest model pick-up truck. "We want to make it clear that Taliban will not allow foreign construction companies to work in our country where our people are fighting the US-led occupation forces," the militant commander explained.

#1  Not as dangerous as in the USA. Over 125 highway workers each year are killed while on the job. Careless drivers mostly. Keep that in mind next time your driving and you see the "work ahead" sign. This public service announcement brought to you by an ex-construction industry rantburger.

#2  Jack, the three construction workers killed in Colorado Springs all died from "freak accidents". Two were killed when a crane overturned. I don't remember how the third one died, but it was some kind of weird accident. Construction work is dangerous. When you add in the hazard of people shooting at you and blowing things up, it gets REALLY dangerous. The taliban continue to prove to the entire world they're just a half-step up from rabid animals.

Gunmen target Mogadishu radio chiefs
Unknown gunmen shoot and kill the managing director of a local radio station while injuring another at Mogadishu's Bakara market.
What's the frequency, Achmed?
The incident took place on Wednesday afternoon as three unidentified armed men opened fire in the biggest trading center in Somalia. The attack accordingly claimed the head of HornAfrik radio, Said Tahlil Ahmed, and left the managing director of Shabelle radio, Mukhtar Mohamed Hirabe, slightly wounded, a Press TV correspondent in Somalia reported.

The Wednesday assault took place between Dahabshiil building and Nation Link Telecom building as the managing directors of various local radio channels were heading back to their stations following a meeting at a bazaar's building. The meeting had earlier been called by senior al-Shabaab officials.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the assassination and the motive behind the murder remains unknown.

Said Tahliil Ahmed is the second media person killed in Mogadishu so far this year. Weeks ago, insurgents had targeted Shabelle radio reporter, Hassan Mayow, in the Somali capital.

The wave of killing and injuring media people in lawless Somalia is an intentionally organized drive to silence journalistic voice in the Horn of Africa state.

HornAfrik takes pride on its journalistic independence. According to the BBC, its broadcasts have in the past 'angered both the government as well as the opposition.'

Last year, former managing director of HornAfrik radio, Ali Iman Sharmarke, and his colleague, Mahad Ahmed Elmi, were assassinated in Mogadishu.

Elmi was gunned down by two assailants as he headed for work. A few hours later, Sharmarke was killed as explosives planet in his car went off on his way back from Emil's funeral.

Two other Somali journalists, one working for Reuters and the other for Voice of America who were traveling with Sharmarke, were injured in the attack.

Djerba bomb suspects face sentencing in Paris
Walid Nouar and Christian Ganczarski, a German covert to Islam, face stiff sentences Thursday, when a Paris court decides their role in the deadly 2002 suicide bomb attack in Tunisia, international press reported on Wednesday (February 4th). On April 11th, 2002, Nouar's brother drove a fuel-filled tanker into a synagogue on the Tunisian vacation island of Djerba, killing 14 Germans, five Tunisians and two French citizens. The purported mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks, Pakistani Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, is charged with planning the Djerba attack, but the Paris court chose not try him in absentia.

Shots fired at Jewish center in Holland
Two gunshots were fired at the 'Sinai' Jewish center in Amstelveen, Holland overnight Tuesday, Bnei Akiva emissary Nadav Hardov told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday. No one was wounded in the incident, and the bullet holes in a window were only discovered on Wednesday morning when a maintenance man arrived at the premises.

Hardov, who also works with the Jewish Agency, said that police were investigating the alleged shooting, and did not yet know whether anti-Semitic or anti-Israel motives were behind it.

Approximately 30,000 Jews live in the Netherlands.
Not for much longer ...
In Istanbul, meanwhile, Turkey's main Jewish group urged the state Wednesday to prosecute what it called anti-Semitic acts linked to the IDF's Gaza operation. The group, Musevi Cemaati, or Jewish Community in Turkish, said that some Turkish "fringe" newspapers and other media were continuing to disseminate anti-Semitic messages, including terms such as "bloody Jews" and criticism of the Torah.

Silvyo Ovadya, the head of Musevi Cemaati, said last week in an interview with Haberturk television that there were several hundred examples of recently published articles with anti-Semitic messages linked to the Gaza war.

Thirty dead in Pakistan blast: hospital
THIRTY people were killed when a suspected suicide bomber blew himself up outside a Shiite mosque in central Pakistan overnight, a senior security official said.

"The death toll is now 30," the official said on condition of anonymity. "It is increasingly clear that it was a suicide attack," he said.

Police and rescue workers earlier said at least 21 people were killed and dozens wounded in the blast in the town of Dera Ghazi Khan, in the country's central Punjab province.

India says ISI linked to Mumbai raid planners

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Indian Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon has said Pakistan's spy agency was linked to planners behind the Mumbai attack, the first time the government has directly named the organization over November's deadly raids. "The perpetrators planned, trained and launched their attacks from Pakistan, and the organizers were and remain clients and creations of the ISI," Menon said in a speech in Paris, referring to the military spy agency.

Menon's speech steps up India's rhetoric against Pakistan and reflects growing frustration from New Delhi. In the speech, Menon accused Pakistan of "prevarication" in investigating the attacks and bringing the perpetrators to justice. The speech was delivered at a foreign affairs conference in Paris on Wednesday but was released to the media on Thursday by India's foreign ministry.

Relations between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan have been strained since militants killed 179 people in the attacks, and India has put dialogue on hold. Pakistan said Indian officials should avoid making such statements at a time when Islamabad was in the process of investigating the matter. "One should not jump the gun. Some patience should be shown," foreign ministry spokesman Abdul Basit said.
...while we plan the next one.
Analysts and diplomats said Menon's remarks were a sign of India's impatience with Pakistan and a growing feeling in New Delhi that the civilian government in Islamabad would do nothing that would show the ISI in a critical light. "These comments are a result of that endless wait, and India believes that the civilian government of Pakistan has been given a tight brief by the army not to allow the heat to reach the corridors of the ISI," Naresh Chandra, India's former ambassador to the United States, told Reuters. "The patience is coming to an end and it is beginning to evolve as an endless exercise as India is waiting for a fair response from Pakistan for far too long."

India blames the banned Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) group for the attacks in its commercial hub and said there must have been support from Pakistani official agencies, but generally never mentions the ISI by name.

Pakistan has denied any involvement by state agencies and says it is investigating a dossier of information from India. It still has not responded to India's dossier. The dossier contained the confession of a surviving attacker, satellite phone intercepts between the attackers and their handlers in Pakistan, and a list of Pakistani-made weapons used by the militants, India said.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday that Pakistan must fully investigate the attacks in India's financial hub and cooperate with the Indian government on the issue.
Harrrrumph harrrumph harrrumph...
Menon said a promising peace dialogue with Pakistan had fallen victim to repeated breach of a 2003 ceasefire between the two countries, increased cross-border infiltration and attacks on Indian interests and cities from Pakistan. He said India was willing to work with Pakistan and the international community to bring peace in South Asia. "Given the fragile and unfinished nature of the polity beside us, there is much that the international community can do to help," he said. "For instance, arms sales to Pakistan totally unrelated to the fight against terrorism or extremism are like whiskey to an alcoholic, a drug reinforcing an addiction, skewing the internal political balance, and making the consolidation of democracy more difficult."

Pakistain: Militants seize checkpoint, abduct 30 policemen in northwest
(AKI) - By Syed Saleem Shahzad - Taliban fighters seized control of the Shamozai area on Wednesday after a day-long siege and fierce battles in the northwest Swat Valley. The militants seized control of a police checkpoint, blew it up and abducted 30 policemen.

The action is seen as retaliation after the army recently intensified its operation in the Swat Valley to re-take it from militants, following massive Western pressure on Pakistan to clamp down on extremists in the northwest of the country. "This is a serious offence and the state wil re-establish its writ at all costs," said a security official in Swat on condition of anonymity, as he was not authorised to speak to the media.

The official said the local population has been given 24 hours to evacuate Shamozai before the military carries out a major air and ground offensive to recapture the town "very shortly".

Several areas of Swat are reported to remain under curfew for the eleventh day amid the evacuation of locals on a massive scale and continued shelling of militants' hideouts.

"There is a revolt in the Federally administered tribal areas (FATA) and in North West Frontier Province and the masses should be awakened and prepared to face all kind of situations," the chief minister of NWFP, Ameer Haider Khan Hoti, said in a statement issued shortly after the fall of Shamozai.

Hoti's comments came as militants destroyed 10 container trucks of NATO supplies in the Landi Kotal in Khyber Agency bordering Afghanistan. The militants set fire to the trucks in a parking lot early on Wednesday.

The 10 trucks had managed on Tuesday to cross a bridge in the Khyber pass before this was blown up by militants, severing a key NATO supply route.

Officials estimate it will take at least 10 days to rebuild the bridge, located near the Ali Masjid fort on the strategic Peshawar-Torkham Road.

Every day 300 to 400 NATO supply containers are dispatched from two ports, Bin Qasim and Karachi Port, both situated in Karachi, bound for the Afgan cities of Kandahar and Kabul.

Eighty percent of NATO supplies pass through Khyber Agency on their way to the biggest American base in Bagram, Afghanistan and to Kandahar Airfield through Quetta and Chaman.

A large part of Pakistan's Northwest Frontier Province is now in the hands of Taliban militants, who are preparing to use it as their base for a fresh Spring offensive against NATO forces in neighbouring Afghanistan.

Abducted policemen released in Pakistan
Taliban have released 30 Pakistani security personnel who were taken hostage in an overnight operation in the restive Swat valley. Taliban Spokesman Muslim Khan said Wednesday that the decision was made after the men promised to halt their cooperation with the Islamabad government and quit their jobs, A Press TV correspondent reported. The men were abducted after hundreds of insurgents took over a police station in the Shamoza area in the troubled valley on late Tuesday after a daylong gun battle.

Turbans torch 12 trailers in Landikotal
Militants on Wednesday fired rockets at a military garrison in Landikotal, injuring a soldier of the paramilitary Frontier Corps, and torched 12 trailers in another attack on a parking lot.

Official and tribal sources said the militants fired several rockets and mortar shells from an unknown location at the Landikotal Cantonment area in the wee hours of Wednesday. A junior commissioned officer (Subedar) of the Frontier Corps was injured in the attack.

The Frontier Corps personnel retaliated with heavy artillery fire in the direction from where the rockets were fired. The firing continued for hours. Subsequently, the militants attacked a private parking lot and torched 12 empty trailers, which had arrived from Afghanistan, in the Khyber Sultankhel area of Landikotal.

The sources said a dozen masked men broke into the parking lot and overpowered the watchmen before setting ablaze 12 trailers. They sprinkled petrol on the trailers and torched them. Briefing media persons about the two attacks, Political Agent of the Khyber Agency, Tariq Hayat, said the Shinwari tribe had been fined Rs 20 million under the collective responsibility clause of the Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR) for the attack on Landikotal Cantonment.

The Shinwari tribe has called a grand Jirga to discuss the situation arising out of the announcement of fine by the authorities. Regarding the bridge blown up the other day, the political agent said to reconnect the Landikotal Tehsil with the rest of the country, a road had been made in a dry stream over which the old bridge was built. The road would remain operational till the reconstruction of the century-old bridge.

After remaining suspended for 24 hours, the supplies to Nato and the US troops operating in Afghanistan were also restored through the newly-constructed road.A press release of the ISPR said Army engineers were working round-the-clock to complete the repair work on Ali Masjid Bridge within the next 72 hours.

The Army engineers, with the help of the Frontier Corps, are working day and night to complete the repair work on the ancient 110-year-old and 48-metre-long steel bridge over a culvert near Ali Masjid, which was blown up by militants late Monday night. All the required construction material and heavy machinery have been sent to the site, it said.

Nine turbans banged near Peshawar
Nine members of a Bara-based militant group were killed in an encounter with the police and the Qaumi Lashkar comprising armed villagers when they allegedly attempted to kidnap the Nazim of Bazidkhel union council near here on Wednesday morning.

Three policemen sustained injuries in the first incident of its kind in which the police and villagers joined hands to take on the extremists operating in Peshawar.Police and villagers told The News that members of the Mangal Bagh-led Lashkar-e-Islam entered the Bazidkhel village in two cars and a motorbike in a bid to kidnap Faheem, the Nazim of the local union council.

As villagers and cops were already on alert, an encounter took place, which left seven attackers dead.A source said two more militants were killed near Badaber when they were fleeing on a motorcycle. Another source said nine were killed but two others managed to escape.

The bodies were later shifted to Malik Saad Shaheed Police Lines in Peshawar for identification. The dead were identified as Saif, Jamshed, Wakil, Jehanzeb, Tariq, Sher Gul, Abdul Haq, Zahid and Wilayat. All of them were sporting long beards and hair, the typical style of militants operating in the tribal areas and around Peshawar.

"One of the attackers in his dying declaration said that they had been sent by Mangal Bagh to kidnap Faheem," a source told The News. Meanwhile, Lashkar-e-Islam chief Mangal Bagh threatened the Bazidkhel villagers with reprisals if found to be involved in killing nine of his men.

Speaking on his illegal FM Radio channel on Wednesday night, he argued that 13 of his men had gone to Bazidkhel to offer Fateha and condolences to someone in the village when they were attacked and nine of them were killed. He demanded that those villagers who weren't part of the Lashkar should hoist black flags on their houses. He said their failure to fly black flags would be evidence that they were part of the Lashkar and, therefore, killers of the nine Lashkar-e-Islam members.

Apart from heavy contingents of the police and the Frontier Constabulary that were rushed from across the provincial capital to Bazidkhel, a large number of armed people from the nearby villages also reached the village to tackle the militants and let them know that they would no more be tolerated.

Police and the the FC carried out a search operation in Bazidkhel and nearby towns after the incident. The busy Badaber bazaar was deserted when shopkeepers downed their shutters after rumours that militants were planning to attack the Badaber police station.

Earlier, a spokesman for the Lashkar-e-Islam denied that the slain men wanted to attack the Badaber police station. However, spokesman Misri Khan conceded that their men were on their way to Bazidkhel to take action against some criminals and elements opposed to their organisation.

"Ours is a peaceful organisation that never attacked the security forces and the police. Had they gone there to attack the Badaber police, they would have first attacked Hayatabad and Sarband police stations," he claimed.

The spokesman alleged that their men were stopped at the FC check-post, arrested and later killed by the cops and criminals from Bazidkhel. "We are aware of all those who are behind this act," he added.

However, the Inspector General of Police, NWFP, Malik Naveed Khan, contended that the attackers were from Lashkar-e-Islam. "Peshawar is safe. We will continue to take action against extremists," pledged the provincial police chief.

A series of meetings of the elders of Matani, Badaber, Adezai, Bazidkhel, Sheikh Mohammadi, Mashokhel, Mashogagar, Shahabkhel, Ahcar, Bahadar Killay and several other villages was held recently that decided to raise Lashkars to take on the militants and criminals, patrol the area and prevent kidnappings.

"The government should come up with a clear-cut policy on eliminating these elements. This is the issue of our survival and that is why we have stood up," union council Nazim Faheem told reporters.

I wouldn't be surprised if Iranian-made EFPs show up in Turkey any day now, used by terrorists in that perennial Turkish-Kurdish COIN clusterfuck.

Israel stops Lebanese Gaza aid ship
THE Israeli navy intercepted and boarded a Gaza-bound Lebanese aid boat at sea and was escorting it to the Israeli port of Ashdod, Defence Minister Ehud Barak said.

"At first the ship understood we were prohibiting it from heading to Gaza and steered towards El-Arish" in Egypt, Mr Barak said. "From Egyptian territorial waters it tried to slip into Gaza waters. That is when the Israeli navy boarded it, and it is now taking it to Ashdod," he said.

The military said the crew would be questioned by police and that any humanitarian goods aboard would be taken to the Gaza Strip. It dismissed claims the navy fired at the vessel. "No gunshots were fired on board during the boarding and capture of the cargo boat," the military said in a statement.

One of the organisers of the shipment claimed earlier that the Israeli military had fired at the vessel. "We were informed by the crew that Israeli forces boarded the ship after firing shots at it," Maen Bashur said.

He said the Israeli navy had asked the crew to turn back before seizing the vessel. "Two Israeli gunboats intercepted the ship on Wednesday night while it was in international waters trying to reach territorial waters in northern Palestine," Mr Bashur said.

"The ship was asked to turn back as two Israeli military helicopters flew over the area and fired flares. The aid boat moved away, but it has been trying since early Thursday to reach Gaza through Egyptian territorial waters," he added.

Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora called on the international community to press Israel to allow the vessel which was carrying medical supplies, food, clothing and toys, to reach Gaza.

On board the "Brotherhood Ship" were eight people including the former Greek-Catholic archbishop of Jerusalem, Monsignor Hilarion Capucci, who left Jerusalem in the 1970s after serving time in an Israeli jail for membership of the Palestine Liberation Organisation.

The Togolese-registered Tali had passed via the nearby Mediterranean island of Cyprus where authorities inspected the cargo before it headed for Gaza.

An Israeli military spokesman said that by entering Gazan coastal waters, the crew "raised suspicion, as it could threaten security concerns, or furthermore, the boat could be used for smuggling banned equipment (weaponry, etc) into or out of the Gaza Strip".

He stressed in a statement that "any organisation or country that wishes to transfer humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, can do so via the established crossings between Israel and the Gaza Strip with prior co-ordination".

#1  Doha-based Al-Jazeera television quoted a correspondent aboard the vessel as saying the Israeli navy had fired shots then boarded the Tali and beaten passengers and crew.

"They are opening fire toward the vessel ... there are Israeli soldiers who have actually boarded the vessel," said Salam Khoder. "Three of them are pointing their weapons at us ... They are beating those on the vessel, they are beating and kicking us."

They might as well. Al-Jizz will say they did anyways...

Islamic Jihad commander killed in W. Bank
A top Islamic Jihad commander was killed by IDF special forces in the northern West Bank town of Kabatiya Wednesday overnight. Security officials said Ala Abu Rob, described as the organization's commander in the town, had in recent months attempted to carry out terror attacks in Israel. He was also responsible for several past attacks.

The army said troops entered Abu Rob's home and, identifying him as armed, shot and killed him. They then found several ammunition clips and an explosive device in the house. Abu Rob's brother said the 21-year-old had been arrested in the past and has been wanted for the past year and a half. He said troops barged into their home and shot his brother while he was sitting at a computer. The army had arrested most of Abu Rob's subordinates in recent weeks.

Philippines: Kidnappers seek talks on hostages
(AKI) - Philippine vice-president Manuel "Noli" De Castro on Wednesday said he was prepared to go into the jungles in the country's south to negotiate the release of three aid workers being held hostage by Abu Sayyaf militants.

The Red Cross workers, Italian Eugenio Vagni, Swiss Andreas Notter and Filipino Mary Jean Lacaba were abducted from their car on the Muslim-majority island of Jolo after a humanitarian visit to a local prison three weeks ago.

"Our government is doing everything to rescue and free the victims as soon as possible," De Castro said. "If I can help to secure their release, I am wholeheartedly ready to render my service and assistance."

De Castro released a statement a day after kidnappers allegedly claimed that they were open to talks but demanded the vice president head the government negotiation panel.

According to the Philippines' GMTV, De Castro said he needed the authorisation of the army but he wanted to uphold the government's policy that no ransom should be paid to the kidnappers.

The request for De Castro's involvement is believed to have come from Albader Parad, one of the leaders of Abu Sayyaf, who was interviewed by telephone by journalist Arlyn dela Cruz from the Philippine Daily Inquirer newspaper, published on Wednesday.

Dela Cruz said that Parad passed the telephone to the aid workers and he spoke to Andreas Notter and Mary Jean Lacaba but they could not communicate because the line was unclear. However, he confirmed that the three hostages were in good health.

"We are fine," Andreas Notter reportedly told the Philippine Daily Inquirer in the telephone interview.

"They treat us fine, but my colleagues suffered severe diarrhoea," Notter said, adding that his fellow captives were now doing better after their office sent medication.

Parad also invited the Italian Ambassador, Rubens Anna Fedele, to join a team headed by De Castro and meet him.

De Castro seems to have been chosed because he played the role of mediator in 2000 and helped negotiate the release of several people kidnapped by Abu Sayyaf.

Notter, 38, was kidnapped on January 15 along with Eugenio Vagni, 62, and Mary-Jean Lacaba, 37, while on a humanitarian mission on the southern island of Jolo for the Red Cross.

He said all three were being held together, and were allowed to regularly call their families and colleagues.

Lebanon says five rockets founds near border with Israel
A senior official from the United Nations peacekeeping force in south Lebanon says five rockets have been discovered near the country's border with Israel.

Milos Strugar says the rockets were discovered along with a launching pad by a patrol of peacekeepers Wednesday near the town of Naqoura where the UN force is headquartered. They were not set to be fired.

Strugar said Lebanese army units were called in and an investigation was underway.

The militant group Hezbollah, which has a strong presence in south Lebanon, has a large rocket arsenal, but is not believed to have used them against Israel since the end of the 2006 Second Lebanon War.

Rockets from Lebanon were fired into Israel on two occasions during Israel's Gaza offensive last month. Palestinian militant groups are suspected of having fired them.

Al-Qaeda in gay rape horror
Evil al-Qaeda chiefs are raping young male converts to shame them into becoming suicide bombers, it emerged yesterday.

The intense social stigma and fear of more gay sex attacks leaves Muslims prepared to die.

The warped new tactic was revealed by a reformed Algerian militant. Abu Baçir El Assimi said: "The sexual act on young recruits aged between 16 to 19 was a means to urge them to commit suicide operations." A 22-year-old had suffered sexual injuries before being shot dead on a suicide mission in Tademaït, Algeria, three weeks ago. Samples taken from his body are being analysed in a bid to identify his torturer. And the US military discovered two years ago that al-Qaeda were dishonouring women in Iraq to turn them into suicide bombers. A terror leader would marry, then let another man rape his wife.

It was also revealed yesterday how a 51-year-old woman militant had recruited more than 80 women as suicide bombers. Samira Jassim, who calls herself "the mother of believers", targeted the weak and troubled. Arrested after a tip-off, she admitted orchestrating 28 successful bombings.

Experts believe al-Qaeda's sick tactics may be a sign of desperation. One said: "Perhaps they are running short of potential martyrs."

#2  One might think that homosexual rape even for the purpose of jihad would be unacceptable for muslims.

One would be wrong.

Jihad trumps the need for 5 times a day prayer, for abstinence from alcohol, from fasting in Ramadan, making the pilgrimage to mecca, etc. This is despite the fact that jihad is not one of the 5 pillars. Saladin did not fast during Ramadan and won victories over the crusaders and modern jihadists use this as a proof text.

So if you can dispense with the fast, surely you can dispense with the ban on gay sex.

#12  Rape is an idea method to use, as under shariah law they must produce four witnesses.

Another method is for a member of al-Qaeda to marry a woman and then dishonour her in some way, such as letting someone else rape her. “This would leave her with no choice but to end her life,” Captain Shown, 34, said.

You should strive to be a better moslem - starting by not using ANYTHING invented by infidels, or Joooooooos.

#57  Vietnam fell to the communists because we weren't aggressive enough.
Iraq just held another free election unlike eight years ago when it was "vote Saddam or die."
Afghanistan was under the Taliban until al-Qaeda forced us to do in weeks what the Russians couldn't do in a decade.

So, are those your examples of American imperialism? What treasures did we loot and bring home? How many slaves did we take? How did we benefit besides removing a bunch of neo-Nazis like you from power?

Any other questions, moron?

#59  Midoman: do you support men marrying women, having a friend rape them, and then talking them into being a suicide bomber to "restore" their "honor" (which the Islamic men took away)?

Another question: if you are so against us, why aren't YOU a suicide bomber. Talk is cheap. You can use a bunch of profanity here. Big deal. You guys love to talk and talk.

I have never seen Arab men have any trouble having sex with multiple women. But then they want "pure" women.

Do you support the "mother of believers" who would arrange rapes in order to convert young women (who would have been unnecessarily traumatized) into being suicide bombers?

Do you?

Do you?

Do you?

I will answer. Moslems like Midoman feed on anger and hate because they feel "humiliated" because they have been sexually violated, usually by clerics. Young boys are considered "nymphs" and are often sodomized by men they look up to, just like al-Queda chiefs are doing.

It is exploitation.

Midoman WILL NEVER EVER EVER actually talk about the issue. He'll just bellow and roar, like they all do. They are a singularly irrational people.

Listen up, Mido:
We would never have entered Iraq if Saddam had never entered Kuwait.
We would never have entered Afghanistan if the Taliban had not supported bin Laden in killing 3,000 innocent people on 9/11.

Get out of poor people's countries? You mean like Pakistani's are staying out of Afghanistan and Kashmir? Like Iranians are staying out of Iraq and Lebanon and Gaza? Or do you mean like you Egyptians (who are supposedly at peace) are letting explosives and rockets tunnel into poor little Gaza.

BTW, how did Islam spread all the way to the Atlantic? Peace?

#72  Also, I don't think Midoman or other Islamo-thugs realize just how much contempt we in the western world have for them militarily. That is, hiding behind women, children, numerous civilians, and in assorted burquas just does not engender a great deal of respect from anyone who has served in any type of *real* military.

#74  Because muslims don't have your missiles and satellites!

Muslims don't have these things because they turned away from reason and science to mire themselves in medieval theology, a repressive social and political system and often outright superstition.

Where they've acquired them lately it has - in every case - been by borrowing, stealing or learning from the West.

THAT is as much a source of the Midoman's simmering humiliation as sexual matters.

Although it does seem as if many in the Islamic world are really, really obsessed with sex - who's getting it, who hasn't and how to impose oneself on those who cannot resist: boys, women raped at their husband's instigation or that of a 'believing' female fanatic, Europen women gang-raped by Muslims taken in and given generous welfare benefits without any work required.

Sex, violence, hatred. Sex, violence, hatred. A simmering stew of futility and impotence.

And underneath all that - massive, massive shame. Shame for themselves, their people and their culture.

Posted by: Midoman || 02/05/2009 16:23 Comments || Top||

#87  So, you like suicide bombings? Like these?
The 2003 Casablanca bombings were a series of suicide bombings on May 16, 2003, in Casablanca, Morocco. The attacks were the deadliest terrorist attacks in the country's history.

The 14 bombers, most between 20 and 24 years old, bombed several places on the night of May the 16th.

Another bomber killed three passersby as he attempted to bomb a Jewish cemetery. He was 150 yards (140 m) away from the cemetery and likely lost, so he blew up by a fountain. Two additional bombers attacked a Jewish community center, but killed no one because the building was closed and empty. It would have been packed the next day.

Another bomber attacked a Jewish-owned Italian restaurant, and another blew up near the Belgian consulate which is located meters away from the restaurant, killing two police officers.

In all, 12 bombers died, along with 33 civilians. Two bombers were arrested before they could carry out attacks. More than 100 people were injured. Eight of the dead were Europeans (three Spanish among them) and the rest were Moroccan.

You're a real sicko.

Jews have better things to do than kill Palestinians. There are many, many Palestinians living in peace and prosperity inside Israel. Hamas should let the Jews help them develop resort hotels on the Mediterranean, let the Jews teach them modern agricultural techniques, etc. Jews would be glad to do it for a little peace. But the hate gets in the way.

#93  Midoman could benefit from more reliable sources of statistics.

I have a little sympathy with Midoman, however. It's really extraordinarily difficult for someone from a small country to visualize how big and how diverse the US really is. Even most Europeans don't manage it unless they've lived a LOT of places here for a long time.

So he tries to form a picture for this country and what he gets is .... photos and films, often coarse and juvenile at best, without realizing that they don't represent the lives or beliefs of most Americans. He gets statistics that may or may not be accurate but that are almost always out of context, lacking the reality behind them.

I mean, come on: women having sex with 500 men before they marry? In a nation of 300 million people there may be such a woman. She may even have a friend or two like her. What she would not be is representative of Americans as a whole.

But as I said, when you live in Morocco chances are the picture you get of the US is distorted.

Hell, many of the Saudi princelings with whom I interacted, some of whom went to college here, didn't have a clue. Why should Midoman?

No, the problem isn't the fact that he has such a distorted view of the US. The problem is that he is consumed with hate and shame, which makes talking with him and those like him a waste of time.

#105  Muslim world used to be one entity once!

Indeed, the Arabs raped and pillaged their way to something like an empire for a short while. But that empire never covered even the majority of Muslim countries today and Islam has always been fractured, from the earliest time: Sunni vs. Shia, the Arab slave owners vs. those in Africa whom they held in captivity, the Turks vs. the Arabs.

And you wholly miss the point that places like Indonesia were NEVER part of some unified Caliphate.

I never said I loved Arabs in general. I said I did business in multiple Muslim countries including with the Saudi kingdom (business that had nothing to do with oil) and have Muslim friends. Significantly, none of them is a jihadist, all are educated and productive people of peace. They don't spew hatred and profanity on the Internet or anywhere else.

Not the one whose believers seem to be happy to kill innocent Muslims through cowardly acts of violence in public places.

We have free speech here, which means anyone can make any kind of crappy movie or TV show they like, even if it is not respectful or even full of outright lies (which most are).

Arabic - at least Classical Arabic, which is the form I learned a little of - can be quite beautiful, a language made for poetry.

Unfortunately, there are Muslim preachers speaking on TV in Arabic who do so with a great deal of hatred and gleefully encourage violence. My Arabic is modest but even I know that. Their hatred and dirty souls pollute and bring shame on that language.

#113  I believe in God. I do not believe that Islam is the One True Religion. From what I've heard I believe your prophet Mohammed was in fact more of a warlord than anything else. He forced his twisted religion onto people at the point of a sword and his followers are continuing to do the same thing today. If you had a really good religion you could spread it with the power of persuasion and there would be no need for violence. I prefer Christianity because Jesus taught us to love one another, even to love our enemies. I do not believe that God wants us to kill each other. Think about it. If you are a parent who loves His children you do not want to see them killing each other.

We are not what you see in the movies. If you think Hollywood is a twisted, evil place you are partially correct. But even that is too simple to be entirely correct. We're not simple. We are so complicated that we don't even understand ourselves all the time. We are not perfect. We do not claim to be. But we're not that bad either.

Doesn't Islam mean "submission"? That's all we ask for. Submit to the obvious superiority of our Western ways, and the world will be at peace. We'll even let you continue bowing to your idols 5 times a day, and sodomizing goats or camels (whichever you prefer). Submit to us, or face the ugly consequences.

#118  Oui, je parle français. Je m'excuse, mais si mon français ne comprend pas votre slang et blasphématoire. Je l'ai appris pour lire Pascal, Molière, Racine et d'autres grands écrivains, et non pas pour échanger des insultes sale.

#119  I think Midoman is the 12th Iman.
What with his elegant prose and his firm grasp of reality he has to be.

#120  And here I thought the internet was going to cut out the Midoman.

#123  I speak engineering. It's not the language of diplomacy. At its most foul, it's the language of trajectories and blast radii. Comprende vous?

#126  I always thought that the way the Taliban and their ilk treated women was indicative of some kind of hostility bread of pedophilia.

I guess this article and our esteamed guest's response pretty well affirms that.

I guess it is the true path to rape little boys and torture women.

#128  It's from The Sun as well, which also broke the 'Plague in Algeria' story. The tabloids are giving the broadsheets a bit of spanking lately.

#129  If that Facebook page really is our Midoman, no wonder he's cranky. That mustache is quite sad, really.

Up until Midoman showed up the other day, I had been looking forward to the visit my husband promised me long ago to Morocco, where he spent several enjoyable months working, back in the 1980s -- a factory start-up for a product his team had developed for the local market. Now, I ponder a conversation I had with the wife of a colleague who'd joined her husband on a similar trip.

The lady and her husband were staying in a lovely international hotel on the beach, I assume in/near Rabat. She went down first, and put down towels for herself and her husband, and lay down to sun for a few minutes, as we American women are accustomed to do in peace and safety. A Moroccan gentleman came up to her, and said, "American woman, you want to f*ck?" Naturally, she was startled, as American men have better manners. "No, thank you," quoth she, for her own manners were impeccable, even under such strong provocation. "Besides, my husband will be here in a moment."

"That's ok," responded the Moroccan gentleman, "It won't take that long."

Thank goodness the husband in question appeared just then, causing the Moroccan gentleman to leave very, very quickly.

Which, my dear Midoman, is why your strident threats evoke amusement rather than fear... and your claims to love America and the West to ring very hollow, indeed. As for your multiple languages, see how they fail to impress normal Americans, habibi? Think, my dear, what those other Americans must have been thinking when you boasted of such knowledge to them.

The behaviour of Al Qaeda and those who groom female suicide bombers is what we expect from such brave Lions of Islam. Bluster and bombast overlaying incompetence is what we expect from those like Midoman who like their comfort too much to bestir themselves to do more than prance about the internet pretending.

#130  "I should strive to kick your ass, Barba-rat!"

Bring it, asshole.

I haven't had to put an idiot in on the ground in quite a while - I kinda miss the fun.

But don't worry - unlike your fellow moslems, the only thing I'll do to your ass is kick it.

#131  Click here for an excellent intellectual and scholarly discussion on Muslim cultural sympathies.

A real eye opener, IMO

You should watch this as well, Midoman.

You might learn something...

#132  Barbara, you are much like the lovely, well-mannered American lady in my tale. That poor Moroccan gentlemen never knew how lucky he was that her husband arrived at that moment, else he would have scuttled away missing those bits necessary to not take very long. Like you, she played for keeps.

(Yes, Nimble Spemble dear, this time I know exactly what my words implied.)

#135  Barbara's little chrome pistol would put a pretty big hole in a person. She does know how to shoot it. Something a Muzzie should factor in.
