davidthompson: Islam's Hagiographer

Courtesy of Jihad Watch (IMHO the most reliable reporting on Islam to be found on the Web):

This article about Karen Armstrong, foremost apologist for Islam, who has been a featured speaker at the Smithsonian, a favorite at John Esposito's Center for Explaining Islam to non-Muslims (officially known as the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding), and the subject of a puff piece by Sally Quinn, Ben Bradlee's main squeeze at the Washington Post:
davidthompson: Islam's Hagiographer

Actually, Armstrong knows her sources (I've read both her biography of Muhammad and A History of God), but creates contorted rationalizations or tries to shame the West. In the first chapter of the biography of Muhammad, she rationalizes Muslim rage over Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses by comparing it to book-burnings in the West centuries ago. As an intelligent Christian noted, the Western fear is a return to the days of book-burning in Nazi Germany.

Ex-ACLU Head Seized in Porn Case

I once returned a solicitation from the ACLU with the message "The ACLU - making American safe for Osama and Islamic terrorism." Now we know why the ACLU wants totally unfettered freedom of expression:

VIRGINIA BRIEFING - washingtonpost.com:


Ex-ACLU Head Seized in Porn Case

An Arlington County youth sports coach and former ACLU chapter president was arrested on child pornography charges by federal agents who accused him of viewing Web sites filled with explicit images of pre-pubescent girls.

Charles Rust-Tierney, 51, of Arlington was charged with receipt and possession of child pornography. He was ordered detained pending a preliminary hearing Wednesday. Prosecutors said Rust-Tierney coaches various youth sports teams in and around Arlington. A 2002 Virginia ACLU newsletter identified him as the group's president.

-- Jerry Markon

Allegedly, the child porn was much worse than Jerry Markon portrayed it - it was so vile, that the only logical progression(?) is "snuff" film, where people are murdered on video. Leave it to the WaPo to bury this item under "Virginia Briefing"! It should have been at least the lead story in the Metro section!

Oh brother, another academic institution in the DC area to monitor:
University of Maryland's "prestigious" Program on International Policy Attitudes.

"The Killing of Non-Muslims Is Legitimate"

How much plainer can it get? Here we have the Islamofascist definition of innocent:

Is the same kind of vitriolic hatred being presented in mosques here in the United States?

Maverick News Media

Pamela of Atlas Shrugs invited me to contribute to this new site, launched on February 12, 2007. Pastorius of CUANAS and Infidel Bloggers Alliance recommended me.

Here is Pamela's announcement:
It's in previews now -- but this is your next destination. I am developing a new news page MNN - a news portal - a work in progress called Maverick News Network. I am hoping to bring together original, fearless voices in one easy to access spot.

It is a compendium of new, important disparate opinion, arts, leisure, entertainment. Just finished designing its banner. It will be about pursuing the joie of life, liberty, mendacity, art, books, love, hate, valor, .....that's entertainment!

Pastorius is on board, Always on Watch, and I have my guy undercover at CAIR writing UNDERCOVER: CAIR CORNER. Check it everyday for the under reported news and punditry you'll only find by this smart, influential, funny, group of warriors.
Maverick News Media is still a work in progress. Nevertheless, it is now my first stop of the day, even if I'm not posting on that first daily visit.

I had my first posting up within minutes of Pamela's invitation!

I will, of course, be continuing to post here at Northern Virginiastan, where I first started.

Anti-Dhimmis Needed For February 20: "No Road Signs For Terrorists"

What? Demonstration
Where? Charlotte County Courthouse
When? February 20, 2007 @ 6:00 P.M.

So what is this demonstration all about?

Charlotte County, Virginia has named a road sign after Sheikh Gilani. Lots of information about Sheikh Gilani can be found HERE. Excerpt about Sheikh Gilani, from this source:
Gilani, the founder of the terrorist organization Jamaat ul Fuqra, has rubbed shoulders with various members of the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah, their mullah backers, and even Osama bin Laden himself. He has trained fighters for the battlefields of Kashmir, Chechnya, and Bosnia. Gilani was in Pakistani custody for the abduction of US journalist Daniel Pearl, but has since been released. Official sources in Pakistan have indicated that Daniel Pearl was attempting to meet Gilani in the days before he disappeared in Karachi. Pakistani police arrested Gilani in Rawalpindi on January 30, 2002 and shifted him to Karachi for questioning. Although he denied any link to the abduction, police also detained several of his colleagues. Consequent to his arrest, he reportedly told his interrogators that he had links with the Pakistani intelligence agencies.
CLICK HERE to read the 910 Group's February, 2007 newsletter, which contains additional information about Sheikh Gilani and about what's been going on in Charlotte County, Virginia.

King Fahd Academy

The King Fahd Academy is in West London:

Are the same textbooks being used at the Islamic Saudi Academy in Fairfax County, Virginia? Read this February 23, 2005 press release from Senator Charles Schumer. Excerpt:
Today, Sen. Charles E. Schumer questioned whether the Islamic Saudi Academy in Alexandria, Virginia, is another example of radical Islamic madrassas funded by and linked to terrorism here and abroad. Yesterday it was reported that a recent graduate, Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, of the Academy was indicted on charges of providing material support to terrorists and in conspiring to assassinate the President of the United States. Sen. Schumer immediately called for an investigation into the funding of the Academy by the Justice Department, and is now urging the Saudi Arabian Ambassador, Prince Bandar, to further disclose the nature and funding of the school.

“We need to know if the Islamic Saudi Academy is another example of the Saudi government turning a blind eye to terrorism. I hope that the ISA is not another madrassa in the United States,” Schumer stated....
