Now you can burn your own Al Jazeera/Zionist flag!

From AP:

Palestinian Fatah supporters burn banners fashioned to look like Israeli flags, with an Al-Jazeera logo at their center instead of a Star of David, during a rally in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011. 

Do you think you are missing out on the fun because you don’t have one of those nifty Al Jazeera Zionist flags?

Well, you are in luck!

Firas Press has been using a similar flag to illustrate the “Palestine Papers” articles, so here it is, suitable for printing – and public burning!

Pastor who threatened to burn Qur’an, Terry Jones, barred from UK

He didn’t actually burn a Qur’an. He said he was going to, and then called it off. I don’t approve of burning Qur’ans. I’d rather that the book be read and understood by all free people, so that they know what we’re dealing with. But Jones is dead-on when he says: “This ban exemplifies the sabotage of the basic human rights of freedom of speech and freedom of expression. The ban also proves the effectiveness of the threat of militant Islam in the UK as one is not free to travel to the UK due to the speculation of violence.”

“Koran-protest US pastor Terry Jones banned from UK,” by Alex Spillius in the Telegraph, January 19 (thanks to all who sent this in):

The American pastor who sparked a global controversy when he threatened to burn the Koran has been banned from entering Britain by the Home Office.

Mr Jones had been originally invited by the English Defence League to attend a Feb 5 rally in Luton, Bedfordshire against the presence of Islam in Britain, but that invitation was withdraw [sic].

Another group, England Is Ours, said on its website that it had invited the pastor to speak at a “series of demonstrations against the expansion of Islam and the construction of Mosques here in the UK” in the second week of February.

A Home Office spokesman said: “The Government opposes extremism in all its forms which is why we have excluded Pastor Terry Jones from the UK.”

In a statement, Mr Jones said: “This ban exemplifies the sabotage of the basic human rights of freedom of speech and freedom of expression. The ban also proves the effectiveness of the threat of militant Islam in the UK as one is not free to travel to the UK due to the speculation of violence.”

A member of his staff at the Dove World Outreach Centre in Gainesville, Florida, US, said a letter from the Home Office had been received by courier on Wednesday informing Mr Jones of the ban. She said the letter mentioned the risk of “disruption”.

In other words, the Muslims will riot and kill innocent people if you enter Britain, and we aren’t willing to stand up to them.

Guest Blogger Roger Helmer MEP: Climate Conference Set to Crash and Burn?

Posted by admin | Posted in The Capitol | Posted on 09-12-2010

Tags: , , , , , , ,

I’m here at the UN’s Cancun Climate Conference—or COP16 (Conference of the Parties) in the jargon.  The last two COPs in Poznan (2008) and Copenhagen (2009) were (ironically) characterized by exceptionally cold weather.  I can’t say that there’s December snow in Cancun, but locals tell me it’s exceptionally cool for the time of year.  But then again, that’s Climate Change for you!

This is the world’s travelling circus; the moveable feast; the great eco-love-in.  We have some 15,000 delegates (including me — I’m accredited for the EU which is a great irony since I am hugely skeptical of the EU as well as the myth of man-made climate change).  Of course 99% of the delegates are paid-up true believers in Al Gore’s Great Climate Myth, so everyone here agrees with each other, reinforcing their opinion that Al Gore’s view is the only sane view to have.  I take a profoundly different view though.

Copenhagen carried huge hopes and optimism, and ended in failure and recrimination.  Cancun is the mirror image.  Expectations have been managed down to zero though, so any tiny nugget of success will be hugely overhyped.  And there will be nuggets—probably on forestry, on technology transfer, and on a “Cancun Fund” to combat climate change (watch out for that one, because you know who’ll be paying – you, the taxpayer).  But the Holy Grail, of a legally binding emissions agreement, looks as far off as ever, and they’re already whistling in the wind and talking of “laying the stepping stones for COP17 in Durban in 2011”.

No fewer than 215 organizations took exhibition space here at the Cancun Messe (aptly named).  There are government agencies, trade organizations, charities, lobbyists, campaign groups, miscellaneous small countries and groups of countries, like the Association of Small Island States, and a couple of big countries or proto-countries like the USA and the EU.  And despite the 15,000 delegates (down by 10,000 on Copenhagen in 2009, by the way), there is an air or emptiness and waiting in the Exhibition Hall – some stands not manned at all, others with a few desultory staff chatting to each other or working their lap-tops.

I took a look around.  The diversity of organizations was fascinating.  We had WEDO, the Women’s Environment and Development Organization, allied with the “Global Gender and Climate Alliance” (of course).  The Woods Hole Research Centre, from Massachusetts.  The WFP (World Food Programme).  Even the WAGGGS — the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

Two exhibitors deserve to share the prize for the most bare-faced impudence in showing up at all.  We had the University of East Anglia from the UK (remember the scandal of the leaked e-mails from their Climatic Research Unit?), and railway engineer Rajendra Pacuari’s TERI (The Energy & Research Institute).  Remember that Pachauri is also Chairman of the IPCC, while earning a great deal of money from various advisory posts in the climate change industry.  Given that they’ve both been wholly discredited in the last twelve months, it must have taken courage to show up — although they faced a less than hostile audience.

I have heard a couple of briefings from the EU’s Climate Change Commissioner (yes, I’m afraid we have one), Connie Hedegaard (who presided over the failed Copenhagen Conference last year).  She reported that the EU had taken the high moral ground in the debate (unlike recalcitrant countries like the USA or China), and that at least the EU had a united position.  But later in the day I met Czech Deputy Environment Minister Ivo Hlavac, who assured me that he and his government took a skeptical position (only to be expected from a country where the redoubtable Vaclav Klaus was President).

Tellingly, I also heard a reported comment from UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon.  At a dinner for national delegations, he commended the EU for its strong commitment to climate mitigation, in a way that rather suggested that no one else quite felt the same.

I almost feel sorry for Todd Stern (no relative of the UK’s Lord Stern of Stern Report fame) who leads the American team at the event.  So far as I can tell, he wants (however misguidedly) a binding set of emissions targets, as (I suspect) does President Obama.  But Todd knows perfectly well that if he initials any agreement acceptable to the EU, Congress will chuck it out, while if he tries to put forward a compromise that Congress might just accept, his fellow negotiators in Cancun will have an apoplexy.  I think he’s on a hiding to nothing.

Reports from the negotiating table confirm that agreement is a long way off.  They simply can’t agree Kyoto 2.  In a desperate attempt to stave off total failure, there’s talk of a two year extension on the existing Kyoto deal, but several countries look unlikely to accept that either.  It also raises complex technical legal problems with the so-called Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), and the uncertainty in the industry would be disastrous for that project.

At the end of the day, despite small nuggets of agreement, Cancun looks likely to end in disappointment just as Copenhagen did.  But a successful, legally-binding emissions treaty would be a disaster for the world economy and would do huge damage to America’s interests (and to Europe’s, though they don’t seem to have noticed).  So let me make an appeal to America’s climate realists and conservatives: if against all expectation a deal is agreed in Cancun, use any means you can to pressure Congress to reject it.  That may not be too tough a task.

Officials Will Burn Down Giant Home ‘Bomb Factory’ In California

Posted by admin | Posted in The Capitol | Posted on 01-12-2010

Tags: , , , , , , ,

San Diego County officials announced last night that they will torch a home “bomb factory” because the huge cache of explosives proved too dangerous to remove manually.

Last week, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department suspended its investigation of the Escondido home of George Djura Jakubec due to dangerous conditions, resulting from at least nine pounds of explosives found in the home.

Jakubec pleaded not guilty last Monday to “12 felony counts of possessing destructive devices and 14 counts of possessing ingredients to make destructive devices, along with two bank robbery charges,” according to KGTV news in San Diego.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Sheriff Bill Gore said at a town hall meeting last night “that burning the house is the only safe way to rid the neighborhood of the explosive materials.” Officials are planning to burn the home between December 8-10, depending on weather conditions, and will close nearby Interstate 15 and evacuate several neighboring homes.

Among the explosives found was Pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), the same type of explosive used by shoe bomber Richard Reid in 2001, underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab last Christmas, and the UPS package bombs last month.

Muslims burn crosses in Egypt

cross-burning-kkk.jpg

“The Muslims reportedly set several crucifixes alight and threw stones at the Copts…” Islamic supremacists in Egypt are very different from the KKK, but as they burned crosses in their recent clashes with Copts, their motive is the same as that of the KKK: to intimidate, to frighten. They want to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60).

An update on this story. “Egypt: Coptic pope Shenuda III deplores ‘anti-Christian’ violence,” from AKI, November 24 (thanks to all who sent this in):

Egypt’s Coptic Pope Shenuda III on Wednesday deplored the violent clashes with security forces in Cairo’s Giza district when thousands of minority Christians marched to demand permission from the government to build a church.

Shenuda III was quoted by pan-Arab daily al-Quds al-Arabi as saying he wanted to “forcibly resist action of this kind.”

He said he wanted to “work to restore calm and prevent further acts of violence in the city.”

A group of Muslims reportedly gathered in the area of Giza where some 3,000 Coptic Christians were reported to have protested outside the office of the local governor.

British Muslims Burn National Symbol Of Remembrance

http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Guardian/About/General/2008/11/11/1226398773788/Armistice-Day-ceremony-at-001.jpg

Armistice Day is a very big deal in Britain, as you might expect. The UK suffered 658,700 dead in WWI and an additional 388,000 a mere twenty years later in WWII.

A revered national symbol of Armistice Day is the poppy, which is displayed and worn by Brits throughout the country and derives from the famous poem ‘In Flanders Fields.’

A contingent of British Muslims had a special remembrance planned..protests where a large model of an Armistice Day poppy was burned in effigy,complete with signs saying that Britain’s dead troops were burning in hell:

And yes, a lot of them are probably on the dole and getting welfare benefits.

How’s that multiculturalism working out for you, cousins?

UK: Muslim protestors disrupt Armistice Day commemoration: “British soldiers burn in hell,” “Islam will dominate”

Where are the “moderate” Muslims standing with the British and commemorating Armistice Day? “Poppy-burning Muslim protesters mar Armistice Day commemorations as millions fall silent to remember war dead,” from the Daily Mail, November 11 (thanks to Billy):

Islamic protesters sparked fury today after they burned a model of a poppy and deliberately broke the silence at Armistice Day commemorations in central London.

As millions of Britons fell silent to remember those who have died in war, members of a group called Muslims Against Crusades clashed with police during an ‘emergency demonstration’ in Kensington, west London.

As the clock struck 11am, the Islamic protesters burned a model of a poppy and chanted ‘British soldiers burn in hell’.

They held banners which read ‘Islam will dominate’ and ‘Our dead are in paradise, your dead are in hell’.

The Muslims Against Crusades website includes graphic images of children wounded in warfare and the torture of detainees at Abu Ghraib.

The protest, in Exhibition Road, near Hyde Park, involved about 50 people while about another 50 counter-demonstrators had to be kept apart from the group by a line of police….
