Actually, these comrades in Soviet army hats are not really members of the People’s Cube, nor have they ever been. Instead, this is the most acute case of “life imitating the People’s Cube” we’ve seen so far, especially that it happened almost simultaneously with our very own scheduled Show Trial and Raffle.

A few days ago, on January 5th, in St. Louis, Mo, a group of comrades wearing Russian fur hats with Red Army insignia (complete with red stars and hammer’n’sickles) held a People’s Grand Jury, with live broadcast, in which they unanimously denounced the State Prosecutor for being the imperialist running pig-dog, and, after one hour of selective and one-sided debate found the kriminal kop Darren Wilson guilty on all trumped-up charges.

“Black People’s Grand Jury” indicts Officer Darren Wilson


Obviously, members of the mock show trial are now in need of mock NKVD officers to escort the convicted enemy of the people to the mock Siberian gulag – or, better yet, stage a mock firing squad.

Family Security Matters
Yesterday over a dozen people were killed and nearly the same number of people were wounded as radical Islamists shot people who expressed an offensive opinion about Mohammed. It was savagery. They killed a wounded police officer who was no further threat to them. Mercy would have dictated leaving him on the street. The true nature of these horrific creatures was revealed when they ended his life. All across the globe Islamists rail in violent response whenever anyone has the temerity to publically criticize their faith or its founder. Christians long ago abandoned violence as a solution to disagreement. When will the radicals do so?

Let’s be clear – I’m not a big fan of ethnic jokes, hurtful cartoons against God – regardless whose deity it is, or religious lampooning. But I’m even less a fan of censorship or violence against people with whom I or a group disagree. I’m an educated woman; there are other ways! Recently at a cocktail party one of the guests started making a derogatory comment about Jesus; I quickly, firmly, but politely stopped the woman in her tracks, without having to involve any of my weapons, let alone the handy corkscrew. It can be done. You can stay “stop” or offer a counterpoint without involving bloodshed or the coroner’s office. Note to thin skinned radicals – it’s a cartoon, an opinion, a sound-bite. Offensive, maybe; But get over it!

Paris Attacks Confirm Fallaci’s Islam Insights : Enza Ferreri

These are some of the things that Oriana Fallaci wrote after 9/11. So little has changed that she could have written them now, after the Paris attacks, which also confirm how right she was.

The enemy is in our home

The canard of “moderate” Islam, the comedy of tolerance, the lie of the integration, the farce of multiculturalism continue. And with that, the attempt to make us believe that the enemy consists of a small minority and that small minority lives in distant countries. Well, the enemy is not a small minority. And he’s in our home. He’s an enemy that at first glance does not look like an enemy. Without a beard, dressed in Western fashion, and according to his accomplices in good or bad faith perfectly-assimilated-into-our-social-system. That is, with a residence permit. With the car. With family. Never mind if the family is often made up of two or three wives, never mind if the wife or wives are constantly beaten up, if he sometimes kills his blue-jeans-wearing daughter, if sometimes his son rapes the 15-year-old Bolognese girl walking in the park with her boyfriend. He is an enemy that we treat as a friend. Who nevertheless hates and despise us with intensity. An enemy whom in the name of humanitarianism and political asylum we welcome in thousands at a time, even though the reception centres are overflowing, bursting, and we no longer know where to put him. An enemy whom, in the name of “necessity” (but what necessity, the necessity to fill our streets with peddlers and drug dealers?), we invite through the Olympus of the Constitution. “Come, dear, come. We need you so much.” An enemy who turns mosques into barracks, training camps, recruitment centres for terrorists, and who blindly obeys the imam. An enemy who, thanks to the free movement required by the Schengen Agreement, roams at will across Eurabia, so that to go from London to Marseille, from Cologne to Milan or vice versa he doesn’t have to produce any documents. He can be a terrorist who moves around to organise or put into effect a massacre, he can carry all the explosives he wants: no one stops him, no one touches him.

Media Plays Down Paris Kosher Pogrom: Robin Shepherd….See note please

Perhaps we should call this a jihad because Pogroms occurred when locals in Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine etc. needed to raise a little Jew hatred and were indulged and participated in by the local police and neighbors….In France this week it was all Islam perpetrated as part of their ideology of Jihad….rsk
The vile anti-Semitic pogrom at a Paris Kosher supermarket on Friday is being dramatically downplayed by a politically correct mainstream media that cannot handle the reality of widespread Jew-hatred among Islamists.

Barely had the slaughter at Charlie Hebdo taken place on Wednesday than the mainstream media nailed the motivation of the attackers. This was a terror attack by Islamists opposed to a satirical outlet that had offended the sensitivities of Muslims by holding Mohammed up to ridicule.

There was more to say, of course, but, in a nutshell, they’d conveyed the right message.

Contrast that with reporting during and immediately after the massacre at a Jewish supermarket on Friday, again by Islamists. The contrast is easy because there has so far been no explanation whatsoever. The truth, of course, is that the Kosher supermarket was attacked solely because it was a kosher supermarket.

Put another way, it was attacked because it was Jewish.

Who Derailed Middle East Peace? Ross and Obama Should Look in the Mirror. Jonathan S. Tobin

On yesterday’s New York Times op-ed page, former veteran State Department Middle East hand Dennis Ross made a strong case for the world to stop “giving the Palestinians a pass” for actions intended to derail the peace process. In doing so Ross is taking up the cudgels for the position of the Obama administration against that of its European allies on the question of tolerating a Palestinian diplomatic offensive at the United Nations and the International Criminal Court. Both he and the administration are correct that the Palestinian Authority is sabotaging peace by abandoning negotiations and seeking instead to use international pressure to brand Israel as a pariah. But what Ross leaves out of his argument is as interesting as what he says. The proof that his position is correct lies in the history of his own failures and that of the administrations he served as they wrongly appeased the Palestinians and instead pressured Israel.

Charlie, Muhammad, and the Saudi 1000 Lashes of Raif Badawi by Denis MacEoin

“My commitment is… to reject any repression in the name of religion… a goal we will reach in a peaceful and law-abiding way.” — Raif Badawi.

If he ever leaves prison, his life will have been destroyed — by voyeurs as sexually twisted as those of ancient Rome.

“Our Prophet,” Malik said, “would have been crystal clear and unequivocal in condemning [the Charlie Hebdo massacre]. But his statement points out why there is a problem. Malik was — quite innocently, I am sure — completely wrong. Muhammad did the same thing – many, many times.

Today we all are Charlie, and we are all Raif.

His first 50 lashes were administered Friday. After the noon prayers, outside the mosque, Saudi writer and blogger Raif Badawi, 30, received a sentence perhaps worse than death. Accused of “insulting Islam,” he is to receive 1000 lashes: 50 per week for 20 weeks — nearly half a year. “The lashing order says Raif should ‘be lashed very severely,'” a twitter notice read. “If they lash him again next week we do not know if he is going to survive. He has no medical assistance,” another notice said.

Paris: Grand Mosque Open, Grand Synagogue Closed by Lawrence A. Franklin

What did the shoppers in a Jewish supermarket, four of whom were slaughtered, have to do with the cartoon images of Mohammad?

In light of all the expressed concern about possible anti-Muslim incidents, claims on television that “Muslims are the most persecuted people” seemed jarring and wrong.

Perhaps they should have spent a little time reporting on the anti-Jewish rioting that took place in the heavily Muslim neighborhood of Trappes, a suburb of Paris?

A seemingly required inclusion in most reports on the recent mass murder in Paris was the rhetorical question posed by reporters has been: “Will these events invite a wave of anti-Muslim incidents”? Since these Islam-inspired murders, however, there have been only a few anti-Muslim actions — all against property.

Under-reported, however, was how rapidly the assault against Charlie Hebdo migrated into an anti-Jewish mini-pogrom in the heart of Paris. What did shoppers in a kosher market, four of whom were slaughtered, have to do with the cartoon images of Mohammad? Nothing. But the assault on the HyperCacher Jewish kosher supermarket has a lot to do with the true nature of Islamic militancy.


Excusez moi? Well it does to jihadists. If the shoppers happen to be Jewish:
“Allah” ons enfants de la patrie? Le jour de jihad est arrive. rsk


On Simhat Torah in 1980, a terrorist hid a bomb at the entrance to the Copernic Street synagogue in Paris’ 16th arrondissement. Four people were killed – an Israeli, Aliza Shagrir, and three passersby: Jean-Michel Barbe, Hilario Lopez Fernandez and Philippe Bouissou, a boy who was riding his bicycle. Immediately after the incident, Prime Minister Raymond Barre declared: “This despicable terrorist attack was aimed at Jews on their way to synagogue but hit innocent Frenchmen who were passing by.” His statement was broadcast live by French television on the evening news and was seen by France’s Jews as a symbol of how the state has abandoned them to their fate.
