PAMELA GELLER: READING THE REAL Q’URAN

http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/10/reading_the_real_quran.html Last Friday I was on the Sean Hannity Show, debating Muslim activist Michael Ghouse on the future of Libya. Debating Michael Ghouse is like shooting kuffar in a barrel.  But Friday night, Ghouse presented me with an enormous Qur’an, courtesy of the Muslim Brotherhood-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR): The Message of the Qur’an, […]

MELANIE PHILLIPS: FREEDOM TO SUBMIT TO RELIGIOUS OPPRESSION…THE WESTERN ACHIEVEMENT IN LIBYA

http://phillipsblog.dailymail.co.uk/2011/10/freedom-to-submit-to-religious-oppression-the-western-achievement-in-libya.html Well that didn’t take long, did it? From the moment the British, French and Americans went to war in Libya to depose Col Gaddafy in order to ‘liberate’ the Libyans from a tyrannical and oppressive regime, I warned that Messrs Cameron, Sarkozy and Obama were all too likely to bring to power something that […]

MIT’s Richard Lindzen & Physicist David Douglass: Muller’s findings of warming are ‘nothing remarkable’ — BEST study does not alter Climategate’s ‘serious breaches of ethics’

Lindzen & Douglass slam media for ‘completely misrepresenting Climategate': Scandal revealed ‘explicit evidence of the manipulation of proxy records used in paleoclimate reconstructions, suppression of other viewpoints, manipulation of IPCC process, and intimidation of journal editors were all evidence of serious breaches of ethics. Muller’s findings hardly alters these findings’

Richard Lindzen has given Climate Depot permission to publish this analysis.

MARC MORANO: SCIENTIFIC CASE FOR MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE IS DEAD

http://washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/op-eds/2011/10/scientific-case-man-made-climate-change-dead OpEd Contributor Many of the proponents of man-made global warming are now claiming that climate change is worse than they predicted. According to an Oct. 18, 2011, Daily Climate article, global warming activists claim that the “evidence builds that scientists underplay climate impacts,” and “if anything, global climate disruption is likely to be significantly […]

ANDREW RESTUCCIA:FEDERAL STUDY FINDS NO EVIDENCE THAT CLIMATE CHANGE HAS CAUSED MORE SEVERE FLOODS

A new study conducted by federal scientists found no evidence that climate change has caused more severe flooding in the United States during the last century.
But scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), who published their findings in the Hydrologic Sciences Journal Monday, said they will continue to examine the issue, noting that more research is necessary to better understand the relationship between climate change and flooding.

Scientists have long raised red flags about the impacts of climate change, including sea level rise, desertification and drought. In recent years, scientists have increasingly turned their attention to the effect of climate change on severe weather like hurricanes and tornadoes.

JOHN BERNARD: KARZAI’S GAUNTLET….UNFORTUNATE RAMBLINGS OR VEILED TRUTH

Karzai’s Gauntlet; Unfortunate Rambling or Veiled Truth?

ng.html .
For well over two years now I and others, have been questioning the wisdom of conducting a Counter Insurgency effort in the center of an ideologically monolithic society. The problem with COIN is that it assumes a much flatter playing field than what we, as a non-Shariah compliant society, can expect when conducting military operations in countries where religious adherence to Islam is above 98%.

The truth is, if we had chosen to understand the religion and the dedication of it’s adherents in a way that is consistent with how they have identified themselves -over and over again, COIN would never have been on the table in the first place. Instead; we chose to ignore the obvious in deference to our westernized vision of “harmony among all peoples” and this, to our detriment.

‘Liberated’ Tunisia: 40% Plurality to Mainstream Sharia-Promoting Ennahda Party

Voice of America is reporting:

Although official results have yet to be announced, provisional results give the [mainstream Sharia-promoting] Ennahdha party about 40 percent of the vote.

President Obama’s (sadly predictable) “upbeat” reaction:

U.S. President Barack Obama has offered his congratulations, saying Tunisia has “changed the course of history” and “inspired the world.”

MARK MEMMOTT: US AMBASSADOR LEAVES SYRIA DUE TO “CREDIBLE THREATS”….SEE NOTE

WHY WAS HE MEETING WITH “OPPOSITION FIGURES”? AND WHY WAS AN OPPOSITION LEADER IN THE US EMBASSY?….US GOVERNMENT POLICY IN THE MIDEAST IS INCOHERENT… RSK

“The U.S. has pulled its ambassador out of Syria over security concerns, blaming President Bashar Assad’s government for the threats.,” The Associated Press writes. “State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Monday that Ambassador Robert Ford returned to Washington this weekend after ‘credible threats against his personal safety.’ ”

The wire service adds that “Haynes Mahoney, the Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Damascus, confirmed that Ford was out of the country but emphasized that Washington has not formally recalled him.”

NPR’s Michele Kelemen passes along more from the statement Toner sent to reporters:

“At this point, we can’t say when he will return to Syria. It will depend on our assessment of Syrian regime-led incitement and the security situation on the ground.

“We hope that the Syrian regime will end its incitement campaign against Ambassador Ford.”

Reuters reported earlier that according to “Western diplomats,” the ambassador “left Syria over the weekend.”

As we reported on Sept. 29, Ford has gotten considerable attention for his meetings with opposition figures as protests against the Assad regime have continued over recent months. His efforts have not gone over well with the Assad regime. Government supporters at one point threw stones, eggs and tomatoes at Ford’s convoy as he went to meet with an opposition leader. They also surrounded the building where the ambassador was meeting with that opposition figure.
