HOUSES OF JIHADISTS KAWASME AND ABU AYSHA DEMOLISHED

The IDF has destroyed/sealed off the houses of the terrorists who murdered the 3 yeshiva students:
IDF forces demolished the homes of the two Hamas terrorists suspected of the kidnapping and murder of three Israel youth in June in Hebron late Sunday.

The army announced the completion of the operation on Monday. Forces also sealed off the home of a third suspect who took part in the attack.

Security forces blew up the homes of Hussam Kawasme, the mastermind of the attack, and Amer Abu Aysha, who is suspected of carrying out the kidnapping and murder of the three youth. The home of Marwan Kawasme, the accomplice of Abu Aysha, was sealed off.

“We are determined in bringing the ruthless murderers of Gilad, Eyal and Naftali to justice,” IDF spokesman Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner stated on Monday.

“The demolition of the terrorists’ homes conveys a clear message to terrorists and their accomplices that there is a personal price to pay when engaging in terror and carrying out attacks against Israelis,” he added.
It most certainly does, and delivers something for their relatives to think about too. The only home the terrorists deserve is an isolated cell in prison.

Michael Brown Bumrushing Policemen When He Was Shot? Next Stop for Media, "Why Do Our Young Black Males Feel They Have Nothing To Live For?"


The evidence suggests Michael Brown was bumrushing the police when he was shot.

He was shot in the top of the head. In other words, he was likely running towards the policeman, with his head in a downward position, as football players do when the ball is hiked at the line of scrimmage.

This corresponds to what other witnesses have said.

If this is the truth, if Michael Brown was, indeed, bumrushing a policeman who had his gun drawn, the media will have nothing left in their arsenal.

When the media has nothing left in their arsenal, nothing more to accuse authorities of, the next step is for the media to ask, "Why do (such and such people) feel like such victims that they are forced to resort to (such and such tactics)?

The media does this with the Palestinians: "Why do they feel the need to do suicide bombings?"

The media does this with this with Jihadists in general: "Why do they feel the need to support ISIS?"

The media does this with any group of people, other than the white males the media likes to portray as the "power structure".

It's called "Looking for Root Causes".

Root causes are the justifications - the excuses - that the media gives for the wrong behavior of individuals and groups whom the media favors.

So the media will ask, "Why did Michael Brown bumrush the Police man? Why did he feel as if he had nothing to lose?"

And the excuse (Root Cause) will be, "Because he felt he had nothing to lose."

And "felt he had nothing to lose" will be attributed to "oppression".

And what is "oppression"?

It means a person like Michael Brown lives in a society where other people have more than people like him.

So the solution to "Oppression" is "Free Stuff".

"Free Stuff" means the tax man will take more of your money.

When the Palestinians are shown to have "Root Causes" for their bad behavior - when they are shown to be the victims of "Oppression", then we give them more "Free Stuff". The tax man takes more of your money and gives it to the Palestinians.

And in the case of Michael Brown, well, he is a symbol of Oppression. So, the answer will be, the "community" needs to be given more "Free Stuff", because they are the victims of "Oppression".

DE BLASIO'S POLICIES ALREADY TAKING EFFECT: ALREADY 10% MORE SHOOTINGS TO-DATE THAN SAME PERIOD LAST YEAR

NYTIMES: 2 Killed and Dozen Are Injured as Weekend Shootings Plague New York
All told, at least 14 people in New York were struck by bullets overnight, adding to a tally of shooting victims that is an increase of more than 10 percent over last year, to more than 822 citywide. The increase has persisted despite efforts to tamp down potentially violent situations before they escalate.
THIS IS A DIRECT RESULT OF DE BLASIO'S ANTI-STOP &FRISK POLICY AND HIS APPEASEMENT OF CRIMINAL ELEMENTS - AND IT'S EXACTLY AS WE PREDICTED.

DE BLASIO HAS ALSO APPEASED THE ISLAMO-TERORISTS, SO I EXPECT THEY WILL SUCCEED IN AN ATTACK HERE IN NYC BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR.

SIGH.

ALL THIS COULD BE AVOIDED.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS GET RID OT THE LEFTISTS!


Genetically Modified E. Coli Bacteria Can Now Synthesize Diesel Fuel

From the Smithsonian:
... the team has genetically engineered E. coli bacteria to produce molecules that are interchangeable to the ones in diesel fuels already sold commercially. 
The products of this bacteria, if generated on a large-scale, could theoretically go directly into the millions of car and truck engines currently running on diesel worldwide—without the need to be blended with petroleum-based diesel. 
The group, led by John Love, accomplished the feat by mixing and matching genes from several different bacteria species and inserting them into the E. coli used in the experiment. These genes each code for particular enzymes, so when the genes are inserted into the E. coli, the bacteria gains the ability to synthesize these enzymes. 
As a result, it also gains the ability to perform the same metabolic reactions that those enzymes perform in each of the donor bacteria species. 
By carefully selecting and combining metabolic reactions, the researchers built an artificial chemical pathway piece-by-piece. Through this pathway, the genetically modified E. coli growing and reproducing in a petri dish filled with a high-fat broth were able to absorb fat molecules, convert them into hydrocarbons and excrete them as a waste product. 
Hydrocarbons are the basis for all petroleum-based fuels, and the particular molecules they engineered the E. coli to produce are the same ones present in commercial diesel fuels.
Thing is, they excrete Diesel.

If scientists learn how to do this on a mass scale to where we can eliminate what are not called "fossil fuels", it will not stop the Chicken Littles of the Gaia Movement from shrieking that the end is nigh.

I guarantee you they would turn their hatred, like Sauron's eye, away from "fossil fuels" and onto the problem of E Coli farts, which they would proclaim will destroy all life on Earth if all humans don't stop enjoying life right this very minute.

SUSPECT IN ABU KHDER MURDER RECOUNTS HIS OBSCENE ACT

The leading suspect in the murder of the abu Khder teenager in Jerusalem's Shuafat neighborhood has relayed his account to the court. It goes without saying what he did was repulsive, and hurt Israel even more. The culprits should be locked up and the key thrown away.

THIS IS HOW THEY DO IT

From Mediaite:
If it seems like the African-American community in Ferguson, Missouri is not crazy about Governor Jay Nixon (R-MO), a move he made as attorney general back in the early 1990s could be part of the problem. As the Washington Post’s Philip Bump reported this week, one year after becoming Missouri’s attorney general in 1992 Nixon filed a motion to end St. Louis’ school desegregation program, claiming it was not cost effective.
There's just one problem with that report. Jay Nixon is not a Republican.
In 2008, after incumbent Republican Governor Matt Blunt announced he would not seek reelection, Nixon declared his candidacy for Governor of Missouri, won the Democratic primary, and faced Representative Kenny Hulshof in the general election. On November 4, 2008, Nixon defeated Hulshof and was elected Governor. Nixon was sworn in on January 12, 2009.

ATTENTION DHIMMIS: ALWAYS BE POLITE TO YOUR ISLAMIC OVERLORDS!

Over at Instapundit, the always helpful and insightful Professor Reynolds points out an item that he recognizes as very useful:

NEWS YOU CAN USE: How To Be Polite.

"Indeed."

The article starts off like this:

Most people don’t notice I’m polite, which is sort of the point. I don’t look polite. I am big and droopy and need a haircut. No soul would associate me with watercress sandwiches. Still, every year or so someone takes me aside and says, you actually are weirdly polite, aren’t you? And I always thrill. They noticed. The complimenters don’t always formulate it so gently. For example, after two years ago at the end of an arduous corporate project, slowly turning a thousand red squares in a spreadsheet to yellow, then green, my officemate turned to me and said: “I thought you were a terrible ass-kisser when we started working together.” She paused and frowned. “But it actually helped get things done. It was a strategy.” (That is how an impolite person gives a compliment. Which I gladly accepted.) She was surprised to see the stubborn power of politeness over time. Over time. That’s the thing. Mostly we talk about politeness in the moment. Please, thank you, no go ahead, I like your hat, cool shoes, you look nice today, please take my seat, sir, ma’am, etc. All good, but fleeting.
And it ends like this:
Last week my wife came back from the playground. She told me that my two-year-old, three-foot-tall son, Abraham, walked up to a woman in hijab and asked “What’s your name?” The woman told him her name. Then he put out his little hand and said, “Nice to meet you!” Everyone laughed, and he smiled. He shared with her his firmest handshake, like I taught him.
That's what it always comes down to, for these sanctimonious, self-satisfied liberals who want to teach you how to properly behave: showing deference to their Muslim betters. That's really the whole point of the article. If politeness were the whole point of it, he could have written that his son "walked up to a woman and asked," but no - and he didn't write that his son "walked up to a woman wearing a hijab" or that his son "walked up to a woman wearing a headscarf" or that his son "walked up to a woman in a hijab." He wrote, "walked up to a woman in hijab," because he wants you to know that he is so cool and hip, that he knows the Muslims like to say "a woman in hijab." He is so definitely down with his dhimmi subservience to his Muslim betters, that he wants to show off to you, that he knows the sharia-approved way to describe the dress that is as much a banner of Islamic supremacy as the blood-stained black flags of the ISIL pirates. And he is already teaching his son to kiss the hand that will slit his throat.

Allen West: "Barack Obama Is An Islamist In His Foreign Policy


Yesterday, Reliapundit posted about how Obama's policy makes him appear to be a "crypto-Islamist".

Allen West, essentially, says the same thing.

From the Daily Caller:
“The only plausible explanation for many actions taken by President Obama and his administration is that they are working counter to the security of the United States of America,” the former Florida congressman and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel wrote in the post published Wednesday. 
Among six examples he gives to back up his point is Obama’s decision to release of five Taliban in exchange for Sgt. Bergdahl in May, providing weapons of support to the Egyptian government led by the Muslim Brotherhood, and negotiating with Hamas. 
He also writes at length about Obama’s recent decision to lift a ban on Libyan’s attending U.S. flight schools and studying nuclear science, which had been in place since 1983. “Can anyone explain what the strategy and objective is here in lifting this ban with a nation that is or should be on the terrorist watch list?” he asks. 
”Sorry, but I can only explain this one way: Barack Hussein Obama is an Islamist in his foreign policy perspectives and supports their cause.” 
“The pivot away from the Middle East seems to be nothing more than an opportunity to enable Islamists and their goals,” he continues. “Anyone supporting this Libyan ban being lifted is indeed an enemy of this state.”

KINDERGARTEN STUDENT BARRED FROM EATING LUNCH THAT WASN'T HALAL

A kindergarten in Britain pulled a most offensive act (Hat tip: The Jawa Report):
24-year-old Yasmin Jackson sent Amari to her first day at the new nursery with a chicken salad sandwich for her lunch.

But when she picked her up from Kingswood Day Care Nursery, in Mitcham, south west London at the end of the day, the youngster complained about being hungry.

When I asked Amari if she'd had a good day at school, the first thing she said was 'is it time for me to have my packed lunch yet, mummy? I'm so hungry.'

I thought it was a bit strange, but maybe the staff had forgotten I'd told them she had a lunch. But the manager told me that it was against school policy for kids to bring in their own food.

I asked if it was because the food might be unhealthy, and then told her that the food I had made for my daughter was healthy. She told me it was because they didn't know if the chicken was Halal, and didn't want it poisoning other children.
But starving other children whose lunch doesn't meet their disgusting requirements is allowed? This is practically child abuse, even from a psychological viewpoint. It's bad enough there's some schools in the USA that require children to eat food that may not be healthy let alone tasty. This is possibly worse.

UN APPOINTS ANTI-ISRAEL PROFESSOR TO THEIR INHUMANITY COUNCIL

The latest of the UN's theater of the absurd steps has been to appoint a Canadian professor who's anti-Israel to their phony Human Rights Council:
That the UN Human Rights Council, whose membership is made up of many of the worst dictatorships and human-rights offenders in the world, wouldn’t give Israel a fair hearing was already a given. The Council devotes most of its attention to attempts to undermine the Jewish state’s legitimacy or to promote libelous attacks on its policies. While a lot of the attention on this panel was devoted to the decision of George Clooney’s fiancée to decline participation in the probe, the appointment of Canadian law professor William Schabas demonstrates that the Council is not even interested in the appearance of fairness.

Schabas has already demonstrated his animus for Israel and actually called for Netanyahu to be hauled before the International Criminal Court in The Hague for prosecution. Lest anyone think he takes sides in Israeli political debates, he also advocated the prosecution of Shimon Peres in a comment in which he compared Israel’s actions in Gaza to the genocide in Darfur.

The organization UN Watch, which performs the tiresome yet essential task of monitoring the unfortunate doings of the Human Rights Council, assembled this collection of quotes and dubious positions from Schabas. A dive into his record shows that he is not only an avowed foe of Israel but also something of an apologist for Iran.
It would come as no surprise if he were a Trutherist too. I'm glad Clooney's bride didn't attend, but it would be a lot better if Hollywood performers like them would just stay out of politics; they're not qualified to start with. Schabas sounds revolting as they come, just another kook who doesn't care he's making himself look like a crackpot.

UN's Ban-ki Moon basically calls for Israel's destruction

 (AP) — Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is warning that the failure to hold a conference on establishing a nuclear-weapons-free zone in the Middle East this year could jeopardize the success of next year's review of the landmark 1970 agreement aimed at stopping the spread of nuclear arms. In a report to the U.N. General Assembly circulated Thursday, Ban urged all parties to finalize arrangements for a conference to be held as soon as possible. At the 2010 conference to review the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, 189 member nations called for convening a conference in 2012 on establishing a Mideast zone free of weapons of mass destruction.
THE BELIEF THAT ISRAEL HAS A FEW HUNDRED NUKES IS WHAT PREVENTS ISRAEL FROM BEING ATTACKED ON ALL SIDES.

IT'S WHY THE ENEMY WHICH SURROUNDS ISRAEL MUST ALWAYS HOLD BACK.

THIS DETERRENT VALUE IS ESSENTIAL FOR ISRAEL'S EXISTENCE.

THE ANTISEMITIC CESSPOOL THAT WE CALL THE UN WANTS TO STRIP THAT DETERRENCE AWAY.

EFF'EM.


OBAMA MIGHT AS WELL BE A CRYPTO-ISLAMIST

SINCE OBAMA WAS ELECTED, THE ISLAMISTS HAVE STEADILY GAINED IN THEIR POWER, REAL ESTATE EVERYWHERE ON EARTH.

IF OBAMA ISN'T A CRYPTO-ISLAMIST HE MIGHT AS WELL BE.



SISI KNOWS THIS.

SO DO THE KURDS.

AND THE ISRAELIS.

THE ENEMY KNOWS IT TOO, AND THAT'S ANOTHER REASON WHY THEY HAVE GROWN MORE DARING.

WE CAN STOP THIS IN NOVEMBER.

IN FACT, IT'S NOVEMBER OR NEVER.


FEMINISTS REFUSE TO CONFRONT SHARIA

A woman writing for the Irish Independent points out the failure of alleged feminists to condemn sharia:
Last week the Council of Europe brought into effect the Istanbul Convention which aims to combat violence against women. Fourteen countries have so far ratified the convention and 36 states have signed it. Shamefully, Ireland has done neither. Where is the outcry from our feminist women in the Oireachtas?

Amongst other measures, the Istanbul Convention defines and criminalises forced marriages, female genital mutilation and sexual violence. Recently, we saw the first clinic open in Dublin to treat the almost 4,000 women here who have suffered from female genital mutilation. Globally, FGM is on the rise, as are child marriages, honour killings and forced gender segregation due to the increase in radical Islamism worldwide.
And Ireland too is among the countries taking no serious steps to combat sharia, nor are local feminists saying anything about it.
And yet western feminists, including our own female politicians who spoke so passionately last week in the Seanad about Israel's crimes, are strangely silent on these topics. Why? Are they afraid?

Because it's "politically correct" not to mention the increasing gender apartheid in Gaza for instance. Because you risk accusations of being "racist", "Islamophobic" or "bigoted" if you dare voice concern at the rise in radical Islam and the corresponding destruction of human rights for women and LGBT people. The popularity of "cultural relativism" in leftie, liberal circles has led to a two-tier system of human rights.

In May, the Sultanate of Brunei introduced Islamic criminal (Sharia) law - including stoning for alleged adulterers. In April, the Hamas justice minister announced a new criminal code based on Sharia into Gaza - where, according to Human Rights Watch activist Bill Van Esveld, "the Hamas government is trying to shore up its image as an Islamic reform movement in the face of challenges from more radical Islamist groups, is consolidating its social control by upping its efforts to 'Islamacise' Gaza."

Meanwhile, according to the UN, the two countries which have seen the most disturbing roll-backs in women's rights in recent times are Afghanistan and Syria - both implementing radical Sharia practices with greater and greater ferocity. Hilariously (not really) Iran, whom the UN has accused of "introducing [Sharia] laws that permit gender discrimination and promote violence against women", has a seat on the UN Women's Rights Commission (Status of Women).
It's not hard to see why the UN allowed Iran to keep a seat on that panel - they've long accepted sharia despite what they seemingly say. Good that the op-ed writer brought up what Hamas is doing in Gaza, because it proves they're no different from any other Islamofascists, as they've proven this past month. But the alleged feminists are guaranteed to remain quiet about it for a long time, no matter how bad things become worldwide.

YET ANOTHER ROCKET SPEWED OUT OF GAZA

And proof there was never a "cease-fire":
A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed inside southern Israel on Wednesday, an Israeli police spokesman said, violating a three-day truce that had another two hours to go before expiry.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the rocket caused no damage or casualties, and that it was the first rocket fired from Gaza at Israel since the truce took effect on Monday.
A truce that should not have been, and by going along with this, it only prolongs the aggravation.

JOHN BOLTON SAYS CONGRESS MUST DEFUND THE UN'S WORST DIVISIONS

Bolton wrote about the need to stop funding the UN's institutions that are providing assistance to Hamas, as well as other Islamofascist movements around the world:
Although far from central to the ongoing Hamas-Israel hostilities, the United Nations has nonetheless inflicted substantial damage to its own reputation and credibility. So outrageously have several U.N. institutions behaved, before and during the current Gaza crisis, that the United States can no longer ignore or excuse it. Congress must act to defund U.N. bodies that perform unacceptably — thereby denying them the resources and the legitimacy of American support and putting other U.N. agencies on notice they could face a similar fate.

Three U.N. agencies in particular have demonstrated serious, sustained bias against both Israel and the United States, starting with the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay. In recent weeks, based on press reports and Hamas accusations, Pillay has repeatedly accused Israel of war crimes because of Palestinian civilian deaths in Gaza, saying, “None of this appears to me to be accidental.”

The facts are precisely the opposite: Israel, like America, goes out of its way to avoid civilian casualties but Pillay's intemperate allegations graphically demonstrate her ideological prejudices.

Her worst moment came when she criticized the United States for “not only provid(ing) the heavy weaponry which is now being used by Israel in Gaza,” but also almost $1 billion for the Iron Dome missile-defense system. She complained that Iron Dome was “to protect the Israelis from rocket attacks ... . But no such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling.” Pillay thereby demonstrated both the U.N.'s typical, utterly blind moral equivalence and also implicated America in Israel's alleged war crimes. There is simply no reason we should tolerate such behavior from international bureaucrats.
Most definitely not. The entire system of the UN should cease to receive funding, and Europe should be called upon to follow suit, and not waste taxpayers' money on such revolting people.

DOES THIS PROVE OBAMA IS REALLY WORKING FOR PUTIN...

... OR THAT HE MIGHT AS WELL BE?

JUST ASKING...

NOTE: There's a long list of high-ranking Soviet spies in the West: Alger Hiss, FDR's Dep. Treasury Secretary White, Kim Phiby, Guy Burgess, Anthony Blunt, Aldrich Ames, Robert Hannsen...

Obama would be the highest ranking spy/traitor of all-time.

MANY of Obama's key long-time mentors and friends were Soviet sympathizers (at the very least): Frank Marshall Davis, and - via Gerry Kellman - Saul Alinsky. A frequent baby-sitter for his daughters was neighbor Rashid Khalidi (the successor of Edward Said at Columbia) who had been the spokesman for Arafat's PLO which at the time was a Soviet supported project.

While at Columbia, Obama wrote an essay blaming the USA for Soviet aggression.

As president, Obama took a similar approach to the West's problems with the islamists.

Obama is firmly in the "BLAME AMERICA FIRST!" crowd of the Left.

But maybe he's been doing MUCH more since 1983. Maybe he was recruited then by the KGB?

Just asking...


GERMANY'S WW1 JIHAD PROGRAM

The UK Telegraph gives some history of how Germany used Muslim recruits during WW1 in the early 20th century. Unfortunately, it's got some dishonesty lurking in it. First, they say:
If history is dictated by the concerns of the historian’s day, then it’s surprising more of us haven’t heard the story of the Halbmondlager, or “Half Moon Camp”, a small First World War prisoner-of-war camp in Zossen, near Berlin.

It was like no other PoW camp in history. Reserved primarily for Muslim prisoners, detainees lived in relative luxury and were given everything they needed to practise their faith. Spiritual texts were provided, Ramadan observed, a mosque erected – the first on German soil – and there were sermons by visiting spiritual leaders and academics.

But Half Moon Camp was not some torchbearer for the more enlightened treatment of PoWs ushered in later by the Geneva Convention. It was, instead, the symbolic centre of a spectacularly unsuccessful pet project of Kaiser Wilhelm II: to turn Muslim soldiers fighting for Britain and France into jihadists loyal to Germany. Extensively written about in German history books but elsewhere a long-forgotten story of the Great War, the camp’s extraordinary role is finally being highlighted as part of the renewed scrutiny of the conflict in this centenary year.

The unlikely prophet of the jihad was German aristocrat, adventurer and diplomat Max von Oppenheim. The 54-year-old had returned to the Heimat after 20 years of travel and study in the Orient and, before Britain had even declared war on Germany, had convinced the Kaiser that Islam was Germany’s secret weapon. Oppenheim believed that a well-orchestrated propaganda campaign would stir up a mass Muslim uprising against Britain and France from within colonial territories such as India, Indo-China and north and west Africa.
Interesting, and alarming. However, they may be trying to whitewash Islam, as the following suggests when they bring up the failure to persuade some of the inmates to switch sides:
Why weren’t the men motivated by jihad? It’s perhaps more pertinent to ask, “Why would they have been?” As Rogan points out, the concept was daft to begin with. “It was not a natural thing: a targeted jihad focusing on three Western countries but excluding three other European countries. You hate Britain and France but not Germany, Bulgaria and Austria – what is that about?”

Rogan also thinks Oppenheim and his enthusiastic band of orientalists were deluded. “There was this misconception that Muslims behave in a uniformly fanatical way: they pray together in massive numbers, they obviously all surrender their thoughts in a uniform way, and if you turn that to your advantage you’ve got a powerful force to motivate and mobilise. It just doesn’t work that way.

“Muslims are like people anywhere else. Their willingness to get into something as risky as war is going to be determined by their interests, or their fears, or the threats that they face. It’s not because somebody waves a sword or a Koran and tells them to go to war.”
Oh please! Presumably, if this report has any meat to it, these were moderate Muslims at the time, maybe even Sufis convinced the civilized western world was better for them, but any religious movement that upholds verses and themes as repulsive as what the Koran contains is not like folks anywhere else. If they don't believe in true self-support and think women inferior to men, that's not like anyone else either. Some of the commentors on the article seem to understand this too.

There may be some more details being left out of this report, though it does acknowledge Germany's collaborations with Turkey at the time. But for now, it appears

A CLUE TO SCOTT SNYDER'S POLITICAL POSITIONS

A couple days ago, this comics writer at DC revealed what Marvel series he's reading:

Well at least we know where he could stand on the political spectrum, along with Islam, and the kind of company he likes to keep. And this was the same writer who made that sleazy boast about how far he'd take the Joker. What a disgrace. Upholding a book with a dishonest view on the Religion of Peace doesn't help one bit.

And that's not the only thing Snyder's doing that alarms me. Take a look at this picture taken of him at one of the recent comics conventions:

He - and the other guy with him - has a very crude sense of humor too. This is another example of what's wrong with comicdom and its representatives today. Anybody who wants the medium to be taken seriously wouldn't go out of their way to pull such a disrespectful stunt.

TO PUT DOWN MORSI AND THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, EGYPTIAN POLICE KILLED 1000 IN ONE DAY.

BBC:
The killings of at least 817 people by Egyptian security forces last year probably amount to a crime against humanity, Human Rights Watch says. A report by the US-based group says 1,000 or more people probably died in one day around Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque. 
The deaths came during demonstrations broken up by Egyptian security forces. Executive director Kenneth Roth said the deaths were "one of the world's largest killings of demonstrators in a single day in recent history". ...
... HRW's report says Egyptian police and army "methodically opened fire with live ammunition on crowds" demonstrating against Mr Morsi's removal from power. The clearing of the protest camp at Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque on 14 August 2013 followed "a plan that envisioned several thousand deaths," according to the report. The rights group estimates that a minimum of 817 people died during the violence at the mosque but says the actual figure was more likely 1,000 or more. "Given the widespread and systematic nature of these killings," the report adds, "these killings most likely amount to crimes against humanity."
IN ONE DAY, THE EGYPTIAN MILITARY KILLED AS MANY MUSLIM RADICALS AS THE IDF DID IN 3 WEEKS, YET THERE WERE NO PROTESTS.

THIS IS JUST MORE PROOF THE PROTESTS AGAINST ISRAEL WERE ANTISEMITIC AND THE PEOPLE WHO MARCHED AND CALLED FOR DIVESTMENT ARE ANTISEMITIC SCUM.

(BTW: HAMAS IS AN OFF-SHOOT OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.)

ERDOGAN'S RIG FOR PRESIDENT GOES THROUGH, AS EXPECTED

As was predicted, Turkey's autocrat has secured the role he coveted as president, thanks to the election rigging you can be sure he mastered behind the scenes. And he's already amassed plenty of support among his fellow Muslims there:
Mr Erdogan has built huge support among the country's conservative Muslims and provincial constituents, with his economic reforms tripling the per capita income of millions of Turkey's poor to £5,900 per year and bringing development to inland villages that had previously languished as backwaters.
Ah, I can see what's been going on: he's given welfare - or certainly something similar - to much of the Muslim population in Turkey. And you can be sure Christians didn't get much of that income, if at all. That's the strategy of these sinister Muslim politicians. The paper says Turkey's been prospering during Erdogan's regime, but they'd already been prior to his ascension, and a report I watched on France24 said their fortunes have been dwindling since 2007. So it's not like Turkey's bound to remain economically viable under their modern despot.

HAMAS RAN CHILD SLAVERY TO DIG TUNNELS

A recent report (via Power Line) told how the Hamas used child slave labor for digging the tunnel network the army had to work hard to destroy:
Hamas used children to help them dig numerous tunnels into Israel and Egypt, a 2012 paper written for the Journal of Palestine Studies reported.

The paper, titled Gaza's Tunnel Phenomenon: The Unintended Dynamics of Israel's Siege says that little had been done to stop the phenomenon of child labor during the digging of the tunnels by Hamas in Gaza.

In December 2011, the paper's author Nicolas Pelham accompanied a police patrol in Gaza and reported that "nothing was done to impede the use of children in the tunnels, where, much as in Victorian coal mines, they are prized for their nimble bodies."

He continued and said that "at least 160 children have been killed in the tunnels, according to Hamas officials."
It's been reported today (also via Power Line) that the Hamas executed many of the tunnel diggers:
After the tunnels were completed, dozens were reportedly executed to prevent intelligence leaks to Israel.

“Anyone they suspected might transfer information to Israel on the tunnels was killed by the military wing,” a different source said. “They were very cruel.”
Given that Hamas used youngsters as human shields, it should be no surprise they'd use this kind of slave labor too, and murder anybody they thought would be a collaborator with Israel. To be sure, they didn't even care if they weren't. That's how barbarism operates.
