In suburban Detroit, car windshields were plastered with anti-Jewish and anti-Christian fliers on Friday, according to the McComb (County) Daily. Although the owners of the New Sahara restaurant said they are Chaldean Catholics and do not condone violence against others who have opposite religious beliefs, many people in the Detroit area are affiliated with the more radical fundamentalist Muslim community. In fact, Dearborn - a major suburb of Detroit - is home to the largest Muslim population in the country and has been a hot spot for financing jihadist campaigns worldwide.
Once again, local area police ignore the threat with the "aw shucks, it ain't so bad attitude." Sterling Heights police Detective Sgt. Paul Jesperson. "I would imagine many people thought this was some type of advertising flier and didn't even read it," Jesperson said.
How much do you want to wager that if this flyer were promoting the killing of Muslims every politician from here to Hawaii would be screaming from the hilltops?
But don't worry, McComb County (and the rest of America), it's just the Christians and the Jooos"
Philippe Karsenty was found liable for insulting Charles Enderlin and France2 to the sum of 3000 Euros to Enderlin and 5 symbolic Euros to France2.
What does this mean?
It means that France is willing to sacrifice the truth in order to appease the Muslims.
In the early part of the second Intifada, viewers worldwide watched in horror as Muhammad al-Durrah a 12-year-old Palestinian boy, was killed during a shootout with Israeli police. At the time, the boy was seen cowering in fear next to his father when he was struck in the crossfire. However, it soon became to light that the scene that unfolded on France's Channel 2 may have been staged, and that al-Durrah was not killed - and if he was, it may have been at the hands of the Arabs.
In trying to investigate the event, Philippe Karsenty wrote on his Media-Ratings website (site in French) that the event was indeed staged. This led to the lawsuit against Karsenty by France 2, which basically kills any chance that anyone will ever learn the truth.
Whether al-Durrah was killed or not, or whether he was killed by Israeli soldiers or not, play a huge role in the events of the Middle East. For the Arabs, they used it as a rally cry to drum up support for their cause worldwide. For Israeli's, it vindicates them in a tragic death of a young boy and once again (since the world has a very short memory) who and what we are fighting against. The truth is, the fact that it surprised so few people in America when it was deemed (true or not) a fake, does cause one to be a bit optimistic about the future of Arab propaganda.
CAIR: McCain Doesn't Want Muslim as President
Kinda makes me want to reconsider him. Truthfully, I've never been a big fan of John McCain - in fact, I often confuse him with the star of the Die Hard movie. Also, while I also prefer a Christian president (I fear that should a Jew become President, he will have had to sacrificed far too much to lead, ala Joe Lieberman in 2000), I certainly am against a practicing-Muslim winning. There has been a lot of talk of the "Jewish Cabal", or "Jewish lobby" calling the shots for the USA to benefit Israel. While I find that remark remarkable absurd, the truth is that the Jewish people feel a tremendous amount of love and loyalty for the State of Israel. I have no doubt that many Muslims feel that way about their home lands. However, Israel is a free and open democracy. Israel is a tolerant (mostly, unless you want to kill them) and accepting country.
But when the President of the US is a Muslim, who is he showing "home-grown" loyalty to? Unfortunately, the millions of Jihadi Arabs have completely hijacked the name of Islam and in doing so has spread fear and lack of trust towards many Muslim people. Even Barack Obama, whose middle name is Mohammed, has received flack from his detractors, even though he is clearly not an Islamist. He may be a Left-wing, liberal pseudo-communist/socialist, but he's not an American-hating Islamofacist.
In news from my neck of the woods, children who attend schools in Ridgeland School District 122 (Oak Lawn, IL) are very upset that their local celebrations of Christmas and New Years might be renamed, or even eliminated entirely, all because of a complaint by one Muslim parent.
The district has a 30 percent Arabic population. The superintendent says the reason for the change in tradition comes after one parent wanted Ramadan decorations put up inside Columbus Manor Elementary. They were taken down.
Superintendent Tom Smyth said, "I go back to our policy which says that public schools are to remain neutral in this respect."
In the meantime, Arab children are being allowed to pray during what's being called their own time, that's lunch time, during Ramadan.
Look, I have no problem with allowing Kwanzaa, Chanukah or even Ramadan decorations. I have no problem with kids praying during their free time in school. But I have a really hard time with schools who will bend over backwards to accommodate one ethnic group at the expense, or even at the exclusion of another group. Go ahead and leave the holidays alone and let everyone be who they are. But they should never allow Muslim kids to get away with things that Christian or Jewish children can't.
Again, if it were a Christian mom making the fuss, who would notice or care?
Rush Limbaugh may have a big mouth and may say stupid things (and he does, often), but Tom Harkin is a Senator and should show a little more maturity. In criticizing Limbaugh, who called someone a "phony soldier" (he actually turned out to be a phony), Harkin followed the Leftist logic and lambasted Limbaugh for calling opponents of the war "phonies."
First of all, if you want to beat down Limbaugh, at least get your facts right. The soldier, Jesse MacBeth, served in the military for 44 days, but was never a soldier. He also claimed to have received a Purple-Heart and described all of the atrocities he saw in Iraq. But he never left the US and lied about his award.
Jesse MacBeth, poster boy for the anti-war left, had his day in court. And you know what? He was sentenced to five months in jail and three years probation for falsifying a Department of Veterans Affairs claim and his Army discharge record. He spent 44 days before he washed out of boot camp. Jesse MacBeth isn't an Army Ranger as claimed, and he never was. He isn't a corporal as claimed, and he never was. He never won the Purple Heart a claimed, and he was never in combat to witness the horrors he claimed to have seen.
But Tom Harkin, Liberal Democrat Senator from Iowa, has the time to waste on the Senate floor by saying, "Maybe he was just high on his drugs again."
Stay classy, Senator! You even make Hillary look good.
Now, just a few words about my Dallas Cowboys...
This past week's game against the Rams was a better test for the 'Boys than most people know. Although the Rams came in limping badly, this was the kind of opponent that in years past would have caught the Cowboys sleeping. It wasn't until Tony Romo put the game on his shoulders and infused some life into what was a lackluster 1st half.
While it is way to early to christen Romo the second coming of Roger Staubach (my personal favorite all-time ball player whom I idolized as a boy), there is something very special about him. The way he plays the game, his enthusiasm and his fearless abandon all together give him an edge over 90% of he quarterbacks out there. Honestly, aside from maybe Brett Favre and maybe Donovan McNabb, wouldn't have just landed on the ball and taken a huge loss on the play that Romo instead ran for a 1st down?
The funny thing is that in the 1970's, there was no ESPN, or any 24/7 sports coverage. Many times - between 1966 and 1983 - the Dallas Cowboys were at 4-0, or 3-1, season after season after season. Now, if you turn on any of a myriad of sports networking (especially the NFL Network), you would think being 4-0 (or even 3-1) is a major accomplishment and already questions have been raised over whether a team could go 16-0 for the first time ever.
As far as I'm concerned, the only team I ever saw that I thought was good enough to do it was the 1985 Chicago Bears. As far as this year goes, I believe if anyone could do it, it will be the New England Patriots. But they have to play in Dallas in 2 weeks and the 'Boys, who are up against the soft Vikings, could go into the game with the Pats undefeated as well. Plus, New England has a late season game against the currently unbeaten Indianapolis Colts.
If anyone can beat the Patriots, I believe Dallas and Indy can. In order to beat New England, you need to score a lot of points. Dallas has an improving Defense as well as a powerful offense, as do the Colts. It Will be a fun game to watch. No matter what happens, I hope that the Cowboys win the rematch next February (wishful thinking?).
