DANIEL GREENFIELD: ALL AROUND….DEATH TO AMERICA PART ONE
THE LIBYAN ROUNDUP
Copts are worried for their safety in California, two American universities have been evacuated and there are cries of “We Are All Osama” across the Muslim world. The media is sticking to the movie narrative even when it makes no sense, as in a Sudanese attack on the German embassy or an Islamist attack on Colombian peacekeepers in the Sinai.
Muslims are showing their usual respect for religion by tearing down posters of the Pope in Lebanon and throwing stones on the Temple Mount. The UK’s Channel 4 has pulled a documentary on Islam over security fears, the Muslim Brotherhood called for Friday protests before it retracted them and Obama declared Egypt was no longer an ally before he retracted that.
And so the Arab Spring becomes the Osama Spring.
NO WAR FOR BLOOD
Forget all those warships and soldiers you’re seeing on the news. They’re an empty show being put on by Obama to avoid looking weak in front of the American people. Despite all the tough talk on the front covers of every newspaper, it’s still absolutely business as usual and instead of the US military taking action in Libya, the investigation will be headed up by Attorney General Eric Holder and the FBI.
BETTER TAKE DOWN THAT VIDEO
The Obama administration, meanwhile, has also asked YouTube to take another look at the video to determine whether it violates site content guidelines, although YouTube earlier this week reported that the video was within those guidelines.
The reason why this is plausible is that this kind of niggling legalism is all too typical of the Obamanoids. Rather than asking YouTube to take it down, they suggested that YouTube find a reason within the site guidelines to take it down.
If this actually happened, then the precedent is troubling. This isn’t quite an order by the government to remove the trailer, but it’s a strong hint that it should be removed. And it is not the business of the government to tell private companies what content they should be displaying.
AND GO TO JAIL
What do you expect when Eric Holder gets assigned to a case of Muslims murdering Americans?
US probation officials are looking into potential violations of prison release terms by a California man linked to an anti-Islam film that triggered violent protests in Muslim countries, a court spokeswoman said on Friday.
“The US probation office in the central district of California is reviewing the case,” said Karen Redmond, spokeswoman for the administrative office of the US Courts.
No doubt and no doubt if the gentleman had made a movie about how Israel has always been a part of America, no doubt no one would be investigating his parole status.
AND A FEW OTHER TIDBITS
Romney is coming close to matching Reagan’s numbers among Catholics, which is impressive considering the population shift.
Foreign Muslims commemorate 9/11 by killing America.s Domestic Muslims commemorate it by whining about how they are the real victims of 9/11.
But some domestic Muslims are still killing Americans, like the Springfield Church shooter whose murder of two American senor citizens was mostly overlooked.
For your information, arrogant sparrow, I had dinner with King Hussein in August 1975.
We, humans, stemmed out of one origin, Adam peace be upon him. Read in the holy Qur’an. If you ever to have the honor of sitting before the glorious words of our almighty god- ALLAH and recite verse 13, chapter 49: “oh people we have created you from one couple and made you into different nations and tribes so you need to get to know one another and deal/patronize among you. Let it be known the best amongst you are those (Muslims) who fear god (Allah) the most.”
“Do you know why stupid Anglo-Saxons adopted Darwin’s obsolete theory and still teach it in schools? They think it serves their wicked evil endeavors. By denying god’s (Allah’s) creation, they can deceive naive assholes. They have convinced themselves they’re superior and other races, Black, Brown, Wheatish, Olive… etc were still evolving from monkeys.”
I will see to it Carolynn will never preside, I will establish my own True Spring Creek Home Owners Organization and carry out legal elections, I will rib their gate apart and trash it out of property… Cowboys only care for green dollars. They are thinking of their house appraisal when they will see it. Where is loyalty to Spring Creek, Hippocrates!… For your surprise I have seven kids, three of them are still under age. I will never hesitate to die for them.
Obama calls on Jews to repent of divisive partisanships
Hamas may be planning on using the protests that most aren’t paying attention to as the gateway to a coup
It’s an old saying that if your only tool is a hammer everything begins to look like a nail. Ben Bernanke, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, has now decided to take a third whack at unemployment by another round of “quantitative easing,” using “open market operations” to manipulate interest rates…
…anything that tends to lower interest rates and increase the money supply sends investors out of bonds and dollars and into commodities and stocks. The theory is that higher stock prices will have a “wealth effect,” making people think they’re richer and therefore more willing to spend money.
a reminder from Victor Davis Hanson where all these brilliant plans to convince Americans to mismanage their private finances as badly as their government does, is headed.
Few seem to note that those who receive nothing on their retirement savings don’t retire so easily. And when they don’t retire, jobs don’t open up — which brings us to my next observation: the lost generation of those between 21 and 30, who at various ages and periods came into the workplace the last four years. Many have 8% plus student loans. I doubt half of those will ever be paid off, given the epidemic of unemployment in this cohort.
At American Digest there are some moving recollections of the day. And no one has to ask what day.
Selecting a few images from a very bad year takes you back into that time. Because you fear opening the wound, you work at some remove from what the images return to you. Until you come to one that takes you back and you find yourself there, in that time, in those weeks and months after ‘The Day.’
Mine was a picture of a flyer posted around the city. One of the thousands of flyers posted everywhere. I’d hardly noted it at the time, but kept it in a folder called “September.” It shows three pictures of Simon Dedvukaj. He’s in a tuxedo with the jacket tossed over his shoulder in one shot. Another shows him wearing the cap and gown of a high school graduate. The third is a candid snap taken, I imagine, in his room with some out of focus possessions in the background. There’s a prayer at the bottom and at the top the information: “February 15, 1975 — September 11, 2001.
