Rush Honoring Great American Inventor Hubert "Hub" Schlafly's TOTUS Achievement

Rush Limbaugh's sharp genious combined with warm humor is outstanding, he had me laughing hard when he was honoring Hubert "hub" Sclafly who is the inventor of the Teleprompter, without which Obama never would have been elected, less listened too or taken any serious.

Rush' pun about the TOTUS - Teleprompter Of The United States - Sums up Obama in a nutshell.

Politics has changed.

Rush Limbaugh:

RUSH: We want to honor somebody on the EIB Network today. His name is Hubert "Hub" Schlafly. Hubert "Hub" Schlafly was very quietly inducted into the Cable Hall of Fame in 2008. He was part of the 2008 class. "Born in August, 1919, 'Hub' Schlafly graduated from the University of Notre Dame, BSEE '41, and then later enrolled in graduate studies at Syracuse University. He joined General Electric and was soon assigned to MIT Radiation Laboratory as a Gunfire Control Radar project engineer. In 1947 he became Director of Television Research for 20th Century Fox. Projects included Large Screen Television projection, TV Broadcasting and experiments in cross-polarization microwave transmission."

Hubert "Hub" Schlafly "was enrolled as a Fellow in the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers in 1951 and is a senior member of IEEE and SCTE." Herbert "Hub" Schlafly, being honored today by me on the EIB Network, is a cofounder, director, and vice president of the TelePrompTer Corporation. (laughing) He invented it, folks! Herbert "Hub" Schlafly honored today as the inventor of the teleprompter, thereby enabling the presidential election of Barack Obama.

Born in August 1919, "Hub" Schlafly graduated from the University of Notre Dame, BSEE '41, and then later enrolled in graduate studies at Syracuse University. He joined General Electric and was soon assigned to MIT Radiation Laboratory as a Gunfire Control Radar project engineer. In 1947 he became Director of Television Research for 20th Century Fox. Projects included Large Screen Television projection, TV Broadcasting and experiments in cross-polarization microwave transmission. He was enrolled as a Fellow in the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers in 1951 and is a senior member of IEEE and SCTE. A co-founder, director, and vice president of TelePrompTer Corporation, he served as Executive Vice President, Technical Operation and later as President. In addition to prompting services for broadcasters and public speakers, TelePrompTer pioneered such things as multimedia information displays, theater television, broadcast studio equipment and systems, military command and control room design, installation and operation and, finally, cable television system operation. The company led the way into new cable technologies such as the conception and testing of multi-channel, multi-directional microwave, which Hughes Aircraft Company perfected and is marketing as AML Microwave. Faced with the problem of off-air co-channel interference in urban cable systems, he worked with Paramount, Jerrold and Hamlim engineers in the development of the set-top converter and subsequent broadband expansion of cable for carriage of non-broadcast channels. He directed the first installation and testing of two-way transmission on an operating cable system in Los Gatos, California. His association with Hughes included election as a Director of ThetaCom and the subsequent development of the Subscriber Response System (SRS), installed and tested in El Segundo, California in 1972. IN the late 1960s, Schlafly become convinced, along with others, that the geostationary satellite relay would implement national television programming distribution. After the Canadian launch of ANIK I in November 1972, he contracted Scientific-Atlanta to build an eight-meter transportable satellite receiver, which was first demonstrated at the NCTA Cable Convention in Anaheim, California, June 18, 1973. The program, originating in Washington, DC, was called SPACECAST I. In 1992, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences presented him with an Emmy for Outstanding Achievement in broadband engineering development. In 1999 a second Emmy was awarded for development of the Lens Line Prompting System. He holds more than 16 patents and is an author and lecturer.

The Real Meaning of Earth Hour

Collectivist insanity combined with derangement, turned into a belive and a cult.

North Korea is experiencing earth hour, every hour in a collectivist Socialist bliss denying reality.

However, the facts of life are self evident: EXPLOIT THE EARTH OR DIE!

by Keith Lockitch, The Ayn Rand Institute

On Saturday, March 28, cities around the world will turn off their lights to observe “Earth Hour.” Iconic landmarks from the Sydney Opera House to Manhattan’s skyscrapers will be darkened to encourage reduced energy use and signal a commitment to fighting climate change.

While a one-hour blackout will admittedly have little effect on carbon emissions, what matters, organizers say, is the event’s symbolic meaning. That’s true, but not in the way organizers intend.

We hear constantly that the debate is over on climate change--that man-made greenhouse gases are indisputably causing a planetary emergency. But there is ample scientific evidence to reject the claims of climate catastrophe. And what’s never mentioned? The fact that reducing greenhouse gases to the degree sought by climate activists would, itself, cause significant harm.

Politicians and environmentalists, including those behind Earth Hour, are not calling on people just to change a few light bulbs, they are calling for a truly massive reduction in carbon emissions--as much as 80 percent below 1990 levels. Because our energy is overwhelmingly carbon-based (fossil fuels provide more than 80 percent of world energy), and because the claims of abundant “green energy” from breezes and sunbeams are a myth--this necessarily means a massive reduction in our energy use.

People don’t have a clear view of what this would mean in practice. We, in the industrialized world, take our abundant energy for granted and don’t consider just how much we benefit from its use in every minute of every day. Driving our cars to work and school, sitting in our lighted, heated homes and offices, powering our computers and countless other labor-saving appliances, we count on the indispensable values that industrial energy makes possible: hospitals and grocery stores, factories and farms, international travel and global telecommunications. It is hard for us to project the degree of sacrifice and harm that proposed climate policies would force upon us.

This blindness to the vital importance of energy is precisely what Earth Hour exploits. It sends the comforting-but-false message: Cutting off fossil fuels would be easy and even fun! People spend the hour stargazing and holding torch-lit beach parties; restaurants offer special candle-lit dinners. Earth Hour makes the renunciation of energy seem like a big party.

Participants spend an enjoyable sixty minutes in the dark, safe in the knowledge that the life-saving benefits of industrial civilization are just a light switch away. This bears no relation whatsoever to what life would actually be like under the sort of draconian carbon-reduction policies that climate activists are demanding: punishing carbon taxes, severe emissions caps, outright bans on the construction of power plants.

Forget one measly hour with just the lights off. How about Earth Month, without any form of fossil fuel energy? Try spending a month shivering in the dark without heating, electricity, refrigeration; without power plants or generators; without any of the labor-saving, time-saving, and therefore life-saving products that industrial energy makes possible.

Those who claim that we must cut off our carbon emissions to prevent an alleged global catastrophe need to learn the indisputable fact that cutting off our carbon emissions would be a global catastrophe. What we really need is greater awareness of just how indispensable carbon-based energy is to human life (including, of course, to our ability to cope with any changes in the climate).

It is true that the importance of Earth Hour is its symbolic meaning. But that meaning is the opposite of the one intended. The lights of our cities and monuments are a symbol of human achievement, of what mankind has accomplished in rising from the cave to the skyscraper. Earth Hour presents the disturbing spectacle of people celebrating those lights being extinguished. Its call for people to renounce energy and to rejoice at darkened skyscrapers makes its real meaning unmistakably clear: Earth Hour symbolizes the renunciation of industrial civilization.

Islam And Leftism Follows The Same Basic Rules Of Ur-Fascism

Those rejecting, ignoring or not learning the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them.

There is little doubt in regard to the political climate throughout the western world that Fascism and the traits derived thereof are repeating mistakes from history to various degrees, it has been said, and still being told, that our age and time is remiscient of the 1930's, the same mistakes are happening from appeasement of truly evil and despotic leaders and regimes to political violence, all coming from the left, identity politics, rising antisemitism, stifling of various freedoms, freedom of speech and individual liberty as well as free market exchanges and liberties.
Freedom of speech has always, throughout history been the first victim of Fascism, the mere fact freedom of speech is under attack is a flashing 'Red Alert' warning.
Umberto Eco wrote 14 ways of looking at a blackshirt in 1995, and some of the points bear chilling resemblance to what we observe today.
[The italics are my comments.]

By Umberto Eco in The Modern World

In spite of some fuzziness regarding the difference between various historical forms of fascism, I think it is possible to outline a list of features that are typical of what I would like to call Ur-Fascism, or Eternal Fascism. These features cannot be organized into a system; many of them contradict each other, and are also typical of other kinds of despotism or fanaticism. But it is enough that one of them be present to allow fascism to coagulate around it.
* * *

1. The first feature of Ur-Fascism is the cult of tradition.

Traditionalism is of course much older than fascism. Not only was it typical of counterrevolutionary Catholic thought after the French revolution, but is was born in the late Hellenistic era, as a reaction to classical Greek rationalism. In the Mediterranean basin, people of different religions (most of the faiths indulgently accepted by the Roman pantheon) started dreaming of a revelation received at the dawn of human history. This revelation, according to the traditionalist mystique, had remained for a long time concealed under the veil of forgotten languages -- in Egyptian hieroglyphs, in the Celtic runes, in the scrolls of the little-known religions of Asia.

This new culture had to be syncretistic. Syncretism is not only, as the dictionary says, "the combination of different forms of belief or practice;" such a combination must tolerate contradictions. Each of the original messages contains a sliver of wisdom, and although they seem to say different or incompatible things, they all are nevertheless alluding, allegorically, to the same primeval truth.

As a consequence, there can be no advancement of learning. Truth already has been spelled out once and for all, and we can only keep interpreting its obscure message.

If you browse in the shelves that, in American bookstores, are labeled New Age, you can find there even Saint Augustine, who, as far as I know, was not a fascist. But combining Saint Augustine and Stonehenge -- that is a symptom of Ur-Fascism.

2. Traditionalism implies the rejection of modernism.

Both Fascists, Leftists and Nazis worshipped technology, while traditionalist thinkers usually reject it as a negation of traditional spiritual values. However, even though Nazism was proud of its industrial achievements, its praise of modernism was only the surface of an ideology based upon blood and earth (Blut und Boden). The rejection of the modern world was disguised as a rebuttal of the capitalistic way of life. The Enlightenment, the Age of Reason, is seen as the beginning of modern depravity. In this sense Ur-Fascism can be defined as irrationalism.

3. Irrationalism also depends on the cult of action for action's sake.

Action being beautiful in itself, it must be taken before, or without, reflection. Thinking is a form of emasculation. Therefore culture is suspect insofar as it is identified with critical attitudes. Distrust of the intellectual world has always been a symptom of Ur-Fascism, from Hermann Goering's fondness for a phrase from a Hanns Johst play ("When I hear the word 'culture' I reach for my gun") to the frequent use of such expressions as "degenerate intellectuals," "eggheads," "effete snobs," and "universities are nests of reds." The official Fascist intellectuals, as with the Left today, were mainly engaged in attacking modern culture and the liberal intelligentsia for having betrayed traditional values.

4. The critical spirit makes distinctions, and to distinguish is a sign of modernism.

In modern culture the scientific community praises disagreement as a way to improve knowledge. For Ur-Fascism, disagreement is treason.

5. Besides, disagreement is a sign of diversity.

Ur-Fascism grows up and seeks consensus by exploiting and exacerbating the natural fear of difference. The first appeal of a fascist or prematurely fascist movement is an appeal against the intruders. Thus Ur-Fascism is racist by definition, and the Left today.

6. Ur-Fascism derives from individual or social frustration.

That is why one of the most typical features of the historical fascism was the appeal to a frustrated middle class, a class suffering from an economic crisis or feelings of political humiliation, and frightened by the pressure of lower social groups. In our time, when the old "proletarians" are becoming petty bourgeois (and the lumpen are largely excluded from the political scene), the fascism of tomorrow will find its audience in this new majority.

7. To people who feel deprived of a clear social identity, Ur-Fascism says that their only privilege is the most common one, to be born in the same country.

This is the origin of nationalism. Besides, the only ones who can provide an identity to the nation are its enemies. Thus at the root of the Ur-Fascist psychology there is the obsession with a plot, possibly an international one, like today's Left anti-Zionism lunacy. The followers must feel besieged. The easiest way to solve the plot is the appeal to xenophobia. But the plot must also come from the inside: Jews are usually the best target because they have the advantage of being at the same time inside and outside. In the United States, a prominent instance of the plot obsession is to be found in Pat Robertson's The New World Order, but, as we have recently seen, there are many others.

8. The followers must feel humiliated by the ostentatious wealth and force of their enemies.

When I was a boy I was taught to think of Englishmen as the five-meal people. They ate more frequently than the poor but sober Italians. Jews are rich and help each other through a secret web of mutual assistance. However, the followers of Ur-Fascism must also be convinced that they can overwhelm the enemies. Thus, by a continuous shifting of rhetorical focus, the enemies are at the same time too strong and too weak. Fascist governments are condemned to lose wars because they are constitutionally incapable of objectively evaluating the force of the enemy.

9. For Ur-Fascism there is no struggle for life but, rather, life is lived for struggle.

Thus pacifism is trafficking with the enemy. It is bad because life is permanent warfare. This, however, brings about an Armageddon complex. Since enemies have to be defeated, there must be a final battle, after which the movement will have control of the world. But such "final solutions" implies a further era of peace, a Golden Age, which contradicts the principle of permanent war. No fascist leader has ever succeeded in solving this predicament.

10. Elitism is a typical aspect of any reactionary ideology, insofar as it is fundamentally aristocratic, and aristocratic and militaristic elitism cruelly implies contempt for the weak.

Ur-Fascism can only advocate a popular elitism. Every citizen belongs to the best people in the world, the members or the party are the best among the citizens, every citizen can (or ought to) become a member of the party. But there cannot be patricians without plebeians. In fact, the Leader, knowing that his power was not delegated to him democratically but was conquered by force, also knows that his force is based upon the weakness of the masses; they are so weak as to need and deserve a ruler, this illustrates exactly the Left of today, identity politics with themselves above the rest.

11. In such a perspective everybody is educated to become a hero.

In every mythology the hero is an exceptional being, but in Ur-Fascist ideology heroism is the norm. This cult of heroism is strictly linked with the cult of death. It is not by chance that a motto of the Spanish Falangists was Viva la Muerte ("Long Live Death!"). In nonfascist societies, the lay public is told that death is unpleasant but must be faced with dignity; believers are told that it is the painful way to reach a supernatural happiness. By contrast, the Ur-Fascist hero craves heroic death, advertised as the best reward for a heroic life. The Ur-Fascist hero is impatient to die. In his impatience, he more frequently sends other people to death.

12. Since both permanent war and heroism are difficult games to play, the Ur-Fascist transfers his will to power to sexual matters.

This is the origin of machismo (which implies both disdain for women and intolerance and condemnation of nonstandard sexual habits, from chastity to homosexuality). Since even sex is a difficult game to play, the Ur-Fascist hero tends to play with weapons -- doing so becomes an ersatz phallic exercise, the left today makes those into focus groups and achieve the exact same result, fractionizing society with the same goal.

13. Ur-Fascism is based upon a selective populism, a qualitative populism, one might say.

In a democracy, the citizens have individual rights, but the citizens in their entirety have a political impact only from a quantitative point of view -- one follows the decisions of the majority. For Ur-Fascism, however, individuals as individuals have no rights, and the People is conceived as a quality, a monolithic entity expressing the Common Will. Since no large quantity of human beings can have a common will, the Leader pretends to be their interpreter. Having lost their power of delegation, citizens do not act; they are only called on to play the role of the People. Thus the People is only a theatrical fiction. There is in our future a TV or Internet populism, in which the emotional response of a selected group of citizens can be presented and accepted as the Voice of the People.

Because of its qualitative populism, Ur-Fascism must be against "rotten" parliamentary governments. Wherever a politician casts doubt on the legitimacy of a parliament because it no longer represents the Voice of the People, we can smell Ur-Fascism.

14. Ur-Fascism speaks Newspeak.

Newspeak was invented by Orwell, in Nineteen Eighty-Four, as the official language of what he called Ingsoc, English Socialism. But elements of Ur-Fascism are common to different forms of dictatorship. All the Nazi or Fascist schoolbooks made use of an impoverished vocabulary, and an elementary syntax, in order to limit the instruments for complex and critical reasoning. But we must be ready to identify other kinds of Newspeak, even if they take the apparently innocent form of a popular talk show.
These are the exact traits of today's Leftists, Socialists, Social Democrats and various Leftwing parties.

* * *

Ur-Fascism is still around us, sometimes in plainclothes. It would be so much easier for us if there appeared on the world scene somebody saying, "I want to reopen Auschwitz, I want the Blackshirts to parade again in the Italian squares." Life is not that simple.

Ur-Fascism can come back under the most innocent of disguises.

Our duty is to uncover it and to point our finger at any of its new instances — every day, in every part of the world. Franklin Roosevelt's words of November 4, 1938, are worth recalling: "If American democracy ceases to move forward as a living force, seeking day and night by peaceful means to better the lot of our citizens, fascism will grow in strength in our land." Freedom and liberation are an unending task.

In America today, the exact opposite is currently taking place with the Obama administration, even to the point of repeating the mistakes of Chamberlain to sending back a statue of Churchill to the UK while cozing up to the enemies of humanity and mankind, the enemies of freedom, liberty and Democracy.

Appeasers Are Todays Traitors

Winston Churchill: “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”

They like to call themselves “realists,” but their proper name is “appeasers.” They follow in the hollow footsteps of Neville Chamberlain, who signed an agreement with Hitler, believing it signalled “peace in our time.” But it only encouraged the Fuhrer to believe that there was no will in the West to resist the onslaught of Nazi terror, and thus hastened the onset of the Second World War. As Churchill darkly told Chamberlain upon his return to London, “You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war.”

Todays appeasers and leftists have got no honor, and havent got a clue what it means to be honorable.

Is Ayn Rand Relevant?

More than ever is the answer, she never went out of style, in fact, she was decades ahead of everyone else.
It is eerie how her predictions comes true, her philosophy must be read and understood by every school child in the world, the best way to equip our next generations with reason and common sense, as well as epistomology.

Can't wait to see the movie which is under way, featuring Angelina Jolie as Dagny Taggert.

Yaron Brook in The Wallstreet Journal.

Ayn Rand died more than a quarter of a century ago, yet her name appears regularly in discussions of our current economic turmoil. Pundits including Rush Limbaugh and Rick Santelli urge listeners to read her books, and her magnum opus, "Atlas Shrugged," is selling at a faster rate today than at any time during its 51-year history.

There's a reason. In "Atlas," Rand tells the story of the U.S. economy crumbling under the weight of crushing government interventions and regulations. Meanwhile, blaming greed and the free market, Washington responds with more controls that only deepen the crisis. Sound familiar?

The novel's eerily prophetic nature is no coincidence. "If you understand the dominant philosophy of a society," Rand wrote elsewhere in "Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal," "you can predict its course." Economic crises and runaway government power grabs don't just happen by themselves; they are the product of the philosophical ideas prevalent in a society -- particularly its dominant moral ideas.

Why do we accept the budget-busting costs of a welfare state? Because it implements the moral ideal of self-sacrifice to the needy. Why do so few protest the endless regulatory burdens placed on businessmen? Because businessmen are pursuing their self-interest, which we have been taught is dangerous and immoral. Why did the government go on a crusade to promote "affordable housing," which meant forcing banks to make loans to unqualified home buyers? Because we believe people need to be homeowners, whether or not they can afford to pay for houses.

The message is always the same: "Selfishness is evil; sacrifice for the needs of others is good." But Rand said this message is wrong -- selfishness, rather than being evil, is a virtue. By this she did not mean exploiting others à la Bernie Madoff. Selfishness -- that is, concern with one's genuine, long-range interest -- she wrote, required a man to think, to produce, and to prosper by trading with others voluntarily to mutual benefit.

Rand also noted that only an ethic of rational selfishness can justify the pursuit of profit that is the basis of capitalism -- and that so long as self-interest is tainted by moral suspicion, the profit motive will continue to take the rap for every imaginable (or imagined) social ill and economic disaster. Just look how our present crisis has been attributed to the free market instead of government intervention -- and how proposed solutions inevitably involve yet more government intervention to rein in the pursuit of self-interest.

Rand offered us a way out -- to fight for a morality of rational self-interest, and for capitalism, the system which is its expression. And that is the source of her relevance today.

Dr. Brook is president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute.

Winston Churchill On Appeasement, islam, Communism And Leftists

The man's wisdom stands eternally.

On Appeasement:

"There is no greater mistake than to suppose that platitudes, smooth words, and timid policies offer a path to safety."

"How many wars have been averted by patience and good will?"

"An appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile hoping it will eat him last."

"When nations are strong, they are not always just and when they wish to be just, they are no longer strong."

"Victory will never be found by taking the line of least resistance."

"I cannot subscribe to the idea that it might be possible to dig ourselves in and make no preparations for anything else than passive defense. It is the theory of the turtle."

"I never worry about action, but only about inaction."

On Neville Chamberlain: (famous weakling aka appeaser)

"He was given a choice between war and dishonor. He chose dishonor and he will have war anyway."

On Islam: "What the horn is to the rhinoceros, what the sting is to the wasp, the Mohammadan faith is to the Arabs."

On Socialism:

"If I were asked the difference between Socialism and Communism, I could only reply that the Socialist tries to lead us to disaster by foolish words and the Communist could try to drive us there by violent deeds."

"Socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the abject worship of the State."

"Government of the duds, by the duds, and for the duds."

"No socialist system can be established without a political police."

"Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy."

"It is not alone that property, in all its forms, is struck at, but that liberty, in all its forms, is challenged by the fundamental conceptions of socialism."

"'All men are created equal' says the American Declaration of Independence. 'All men shall be kept equal' say the Socialists."

"Some see private enterprise as a predatory animal to be shot, others look on it as a cow to be milked but a few see it as a sturdy horse pulling a wagon."

"If you destroy a free market, you create a black market."

"The vice of capitalism is that it stands for the unequal sharing of blessings; whereas the virtue of socialism is that it stands for the equal sharing of misery."

"Socialism assails the pre-eminence of the individual."

"Is it better to have equality at the price of poverty or well-being at the price of inequality?"

"The flame of Christian ethics is still our best guide...only on this basis can we reconcile the rights of the individual with the demands of society."

On leftists:

"They are the most disagreeable of people...Their insincerity? Can you not feel a sense of disgust at the arrogant presumption of superiority of these people? Superiority of intellect! Then, when it comes to practice, down they fall with a wallop not only to the level of ordinary human beings but to a level which is even far below the average."

"These very high intellectual persons who wake up every morning...see what they can find to demolish, to undermine, or cast away."

"Let them quit these gospels of envy, hate, and malice. Let them abandon the utter fallacy, the grotesque, erroneous, fatal blunder of believing that by limiting the enterprise of man, by riveting the shackles of a false equality...they will increase the well-being of the world."
On Communism:

"Bolshevism is not a policy; it is a disease."

"The day will come when it will be recognized without doubt throughout the civilized world that the strangling of Bolshevism at birth would have been an untold blessing to the human race."

How Islamic Immigration Reverses Civil Rights In The West

How far do we have to go before we are waking up?
Cowards, appeasers, traitors - The all deserve a Nuremberg trial for their crimes against our people and nations - One word to describe the political elite and their cowardice: Treason!

By Sultan Knish

Somewhere around the middle of the 19th century, General Napier was approached by a delegation that protested the British ban on Suttee. Napier responded by saying, "It is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and hang them. Build your funeral pyre and beside it my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your national custom - then we shall follow ours."

That was India then. Today Britain not only does not follow its national custom abroad, of hanging men who murder women, but does not even follow its own national customs at home.

The "New Britain" is a Chimera, a creature covered with grafted on parts and shiny logos, beneath which stirs a great deal of ugliness. Europe's large immigrant population has brought along its own customs and beliefs, at a time when Europe's native population no longer has any faith or confidence in its own "national customs". When even the idea of a national identity is controversial.

Nor is the problem limited to Europe alone. A combination of post-modern liberal moral equivalence and Dhimmi cowardice has rendered Western societies incapable of addressing all the ugliness that stirs beneath.

The same political establishment which in the name of social reform and open mindedness has degraded every possible national tradition across Europe, in America, Australia and in first world nations around the world-- has treated the brutal customs imported by Muslim immigrants as sacrosanct.

The moral hypocrisy bred by this double standard has in turn begun wrecking the reforms that the West has achieved, paradoxically disempowering the very vulnerable populations on whose behalf liberals once fought.

Women who in many cases went from having few rights, including the right to travel without a male guardian, take out loans, be protected against domestic abuse at home and rape outside the home, are seeing those rights reversed by the tidal flood of immigration and the refusal by political authorities and social critics to admit what is going on.

Honor killings are the endgame in repression, but there are quite many stages in between. Muslim immigrants who import tribal practices that mandate female inferiority do their best to impose them, first on their own women, and then finally on their new country as a whole.

The epidemic of gang rapes by Muslim immigrants in Sweden, Australia and elsewhere in the West are a cultural and religious problem that goes unacknowledged. They are the outgrowth of a belief system that views first non-Muslims and especially non-Muslim women as inferior and open to the taking. But they could not continue without a political and academic climate that discourages any criticism of Islam, and presumes that Western beliefs are inherently bad and non-Western beliefs are inherently good.

There could hardly be a better sanction for the whole ugly parade of atrocities carried out by Muslims in the West, than the belief imposed on their own victims that it is they who are at fault for centuries of colonialism, as if the descendants of Middle Eastern conquerors are somehow nobler than the descendants of European conquerors.

Rather than confronting the double standard and its high cost, Western politicians and academics instead insist on trying to equate Islamic cultural and religious standards with their own standards. And so there is a cottage industry for generating articles, books and slogans insisting that Islam is just as committed to equality and respect for women and minorities, as the West... if not more so.

The wages of this obscene charade, on a par with Theresienstadt, a show concentration camp maintained by the Nazis to show how well they were treating the Jews, is to cover up the real atrocities and the real erosion of civil rights for minorities in the West.

The Anti-Jewish riots, like the Tournade gang rapes in France, the terrorist bombings, the intimidation of cartoonists, the persecution of disabled people by Muslim cabbies, and so much else is part and parcel of the same problem-- Muslim intolerance for others, and their insistence that their hateful and bigoted beliefs should be considered supreme.

With growing concessions toward Islamic law, those beliefs are moving ever closer to becoming the law of the land in Western nations. But in many neighborhoods and areas, they are already the law. When women in France are intimidated into covering their heads, when an Israeli flag cannot hang in a Berlin window, when a Danish cartoonist cannot draw a cartoon, when British police wink at honor killings, when Americans can't catch a cab while carrying alcohol-- the law of Islam reigns supreme. And in doing so it robs hundreds of millions of people of their civil rights.

The suicide bombings, the honor killings, the acid throwing and other atrocities are only the tip of the iceberg. The iceberg itself is the culture of fear, violence and shame created by Muslims in the West that intimidates both Muslims and non-Muslims into obeying Sharia law, rather than the law of the land.

The hardfought legacy of human freedom is being sacrificed on the altar of Muslim immigration, and the constant pandering to Muslim sensibilities over public civil rights. We have come a long way from Napier, as Muslim women in Britain well know. Not only does England not enforce national customs abroad, but even at home, the law of the sword has replaced the laws of the United Kingdom.

King Sharia rules across Europe, violence and brutality is his penal code, and the silence and complacency of nations is his throne. The challenge is to uproot that throne before it hardens and becomes permanent. Before custom becomes law, that generations have grown up with. And the paradox is that it is the very people aiding Muslim immigration who have the most to suffer from it. The ideal of a liberal society is incompatible with a Muslim society. The two cannot and will not co-exist for long. Either the Sword of Islam of the Guarantees of Human Freedom must prevail.

Roots Of The Gaza Conflict And Muslim Behavior

One gets real tired of the medias and their antisemitic, anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist bias, worse is that when you know what is really going on the bias is on par with Nazi complacency, to be naive or ignorant is no excuse - Westerners supporting hamas, Palestine are simply our days Quislings and Nazi sympathizers.

By Nonie Darwish - Terrorism Awareness Project.

With the explosive current events in Gaza, the world needs to understand the roots of this eternal conflict, otherwise we are all kidding ourselves with hopes of peace.

For decades, Arabs had demanded that Israel end the "occupation," and in 2005, Israel did so, disengaging unilaterally from Gaza. With their demands met, there was no ‘cycle of violence’ to respond to, no further justification for anything other than peace and prosperity. With its central location and beautiful beaches on the East Mediteranean, a peaceful and prosperous Gaza could have become another Hong Kong; a shining trade and commerce center. But instead of choosing peace, the Palestinians chose Islamic jihad. They rolled their rocket launchers to the border and started bombing Israeli civilians.

Understanding the reasons why the Palestinians chose violence over peace requires connecting the dots from the behavior of Muslim states back to the laws of Islam: Sharia. Mainstream Sharia books define Jihad as: "to war against non-Muslims to establish the religion." (Shafi’i Sharia o9.0). Jihad is not just the duty of the individual Muslim, but it is also the main duty of the Muslim head of State (the Calipha):

"A Muslim calipha is entrusted to take his people into war and command offensive and aggressive Jihad. He must organize Jihad against any non-Muslim government, which prevents Muslim da’wah (meaning preaching and spreading Islam) from entering its land." (Shafii Law o25.0 to o25.9).

Sharia law# o25.9 states:

"(When the caliph appoints a ruler on a region, his duty includes) if the area has a border adjacent to enemy lands, (he will) undertake Jihad against enemies, dividing the spoils of battle among combatants and setting aside a fifth for deserving recipients."


"The Caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax provided he has first invited them to enter Islam or pay Jizya, the non-Muslim poll tax, (in accordance with the word of Allah Most High Chapter 9 verse 29)."

Zia-Ul-Haq, former President of Pakistan, said "jihad in terms of warfare is a collective responsibility of the Muslim Ummah."

One of Islam’s eminent 20th century scholars, Sheikh Maolana Maududi said:

"Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a state on the basis of its own ideology and program … the objective of Islamic jihad is to eliminate the rule of an un-Islamic system and establish instead an Islamic system of state rule. Islam does not intend to confine this revolution to a single state or a few countries; the aim of Islam is to bring about a universal revolution."

Some people seem to think that such laws are just historical relics, on the books but not in practice or in control of the minds of Muslims. But that is the kind of denial we cannot afford; these laws rule the hearts, minds and actions of a majority of Muslim individuals and states around the world today. These scriptures are taught, preached and promoted as the incontrovertible and eternal word of God and funded by Saudi petrodollars throughout the world, including Western nations such as the U.K. and the United States.

No Muslim leader can survive in a Muslim country if he announces the end of Jihad against non-Muslim countries and states that all references to Jihad in Islamic law do not apply today. Treating non-Muslim neighboring countries and individual as equals, with respect and in peace without trying to convert them to Islam, is simply against Islamic Law.

Muslim leaders who dare to go against this theology are called traitors and puppets of the ‘Great Satan’ West. That is a description that no Muslim leader wants to be labeled with. When president Anwar Sadat of Egypt signed the peace treaty with Israel in 1979, he told his confidants that he knew he was signing his own death warrant. He understood that under Sharia he must have permanent war with non-Muslim Israel.

How can a Muslim leader or individual avoid the hundreds of Quran and Hadith commandments to Muslims to kill Jews and Christians? Q 9:29: "Fight those who believe not in Allah until they pay the Jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued." Q 9:5: "Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them". Q47.4: "When you encounter the unbelievers, Strike off their heads."

A Muslim leader cannot face his devout Muslim subjects after making a decision to engage in friendship and peace with Jews. Mosques all over the Middle East, after all, recite Mohammed’s commandment to Muslims:

"The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and kill them. And the Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!" (Sahih Muslim 41:6985, also Sahih Bukhari 4:52:177)

This Hadith, issued by Mohammad, makes a whole group of people illegal to exist. It was issued in the 7th century, not after the 1948 creation of the State of Israel. It is not a response to modern-day grievances; it is a permanent commandment.

Many Muslims claim that Arabs and Jews lived well together for many years before 1948. But that claim ignores the fact that Jews had to live as ‘dhimmies’ under Islamic Law and were never allowed to rule themselves separate of the Islamic Sharia. When Muslims were weak they often treated their dhimmi subjects well and ignored the commandments to kill, subjugate and humiliate them. But Jew hatred is intrinsic to Islamic scriptures that do not permit reformation under the penalty of death.

This is the real basis of the Arab/Israeli conflict: not a conflict over land or occupation, but a divine obligation to destroy neighboring (non-Muslim) Israel, where Jews are no longer dhimmis but are free to rule themselves. We cannot ignore the root of the problem in Muslim scriptures. That is the true force behind the hate and propaganda Jihadist machine against Jews in the Muslim world.

Some Muslims tell me that they don’t believe in Sharia and question why am I making a big deal about it. My answer is that Sharia is the law of the land in 54 Muslim countries and many Muslim groups are demanding Sharia in the West. In 1990, 45 Muslim countries signed the Cairo Human Rights Declaration which stated that Sharia has supremacy over the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Muslim world must look within to its sacred laws, scriptures, sermons, teaching and preaching, and reform the obstacles for peace that have condemned them to a permanent state of jihad. The non-Muslim world must have no illusions.

One Law For All

One law for all - Can it be more clear!

One Law for All
No Sharia Campaign

By Daniella Csizmadia in Sappho

SAPPHO, LONDON: In order to mark the International Women’s Day, British opponents of Sharia law organized a demonstration in London on 7 March followed by a seminar on Sharia law and women’s rights. The campaign was initiated by Maryam Namazie and widely supported by individuals and organisations, among others Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Naser Khader, Anthony Clifford Grayling, the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain, the European Humanist Federation, the Lawyers' Secular Society and the Iranian Secular Society.

The event followed the launch of a “One law for all” petition and a campaign against Sharia law in Britain at the House of Lords on International Human Rights Day, 10 December 2008. The petition calls on the UK government to abolish Sharia courts and religious tribunals as they work against human rights, freedom and equality.

Segmentation of society

The two-hour demonstration on Trafalgar Square attracted hundreds of supporters from different backgrounds and ethnicities and there were several speeches by the organizers as well as guests – a number of whom have had to flee oppressive Islamic regimes. They warned against the dangers of a segmentation of society caused by the activities of religious tribunals, the cruel and discriminatory nature of Sharia law and the spread of political Islam, which has been supported by such prominent figures as the Archbishop of Canterbury in the name of diversity.

After the speeches, demonstrators marched in a relaxed atmosphere to Conway Hall, escorted by the police. Several onlookers expressed their approval or joined the march spontaneously. Speakers at the public seminar included Naser Khader from Denmark, founder of Democratic Muslims; Fariborz Pooya of the Iranian Secular Society and chair of the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain; Carla Revere, chair of the Lawyers’ Secular Society; Sargul Ahmad from Canada, head of the International Campaign against Civil Law in Iraqi Kurdistan; and Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, journalist and Chair of British Muslims for Secular Democracy. Following the speeches, the floor was opened to questions and comments from the public.

Maryam Namazie, main organiser of the campaign concluded the seminar by noting the success of the day, and encouraging participants to support future efforts to ban Sharia tribunals in Britain and ensure that one secular law for all is maintained. Due to international networking, similar events are expected in other countries, including Denmark.

Bulletin of Jew Hatred March 9, 2009

Facts without comments - we collect the dots, you connect them

Please distribute this bulletin and send us events that you find

Editor's note: One of the problems we're having while compiling this specific newsletter is the bias of the press and the fact that we are not able to rely on the press to report all the news. We have found many accounts of anti-semitism that remain completely unreported by the press or, maybe worse, slanted while being reported. The events that recently took place in San Francisco and Toronto, as reported below, are an example of this. In some cases, we have made the decision to use sources that are not considered mainstream either to attempt to include details that were omitted while being reported elsewhere or, in more extreme cases, to include information that has simply not been reported. --KM

Events are still not being reported as they occur, says The Investigative Project on Terrorism. In January, the College Republicans staged an anti-Hamas event where people were encouraged to throw shoes at the Hamas flag. Rioting ensued when members of the General Union of Palestinian Students overturned the table and attacked the College Republicans while yelling insults and anti-semitic and anti-Israeli statements. Two members of the GUPS were arrested and charged with assault. The College Republicans, however, are facing sanctions by University officials. This is the third time the College Republicans are facing censure. Previously, sanctions were dropped when The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education stepped in to assist.

UPDATE. In the last bulletin, we included an event that occurred at York University in Toronto, Canada. Although this event was reported by the Toronto Globe and Mail, the fact that it had turned into an anti-semitic riot was not reported. For the full story of this event, look here.
The President of York University, Mamdouh Shoukri (mshoukri@yorku.ca) has since issued a statement February 26 here. In addition to this statement, the University banned the the Jewish groups Hasbara Fellowship and Hillel from campus. Hillel members and supporters were the victims in the riot and barracade, not the perpetrators. The University statement regarding the ban can be found here. It is also important to note that Muslim groups were not banned even though many of the rioters were members of Muslim groups.

Chicago, IL, USA
This week, several Israel Apartheid Week (IAW) events were held, sparking shrill and sometimes threatening situations. Swastikas were painted on flyers for a pro-Israel event held Tuesday at Chicago's DePaul University, which was reported to the Chicago police. At Boston University there was a heated IAW event, when pro-Israel students showed up and attempted to distribute their own flyers. They were screamed at, "quasi-accosted," and were bullied into not handing out their materials. Canadian campuses seem to be among the worse hit by IAW. At the University of Toronto, a student was physically assaulted by an IAW event organizer and supposed security guard. A similar situation happened at York University. Police were contacted, but nothing was done.
