In The Koran--A Handy Guide To Hate Lit.

The citations below, from the Koran, were used in an Indian case attempting to get that work banned on the basis of its hateful teachings. Although reports have it that this case was dismissed, after over 20-years and on a technicality, the below offers a "ready reference" to the Koran as hate literature. The "in India" phrase could be as well replaced by "in (Any Place)".

I suggest that you retain this guide in your "fact file" as to both Islam and "hate literature".

* verses which preached cruelty, incited violence and disturbed public tranquility (i.e., 2:193; 8:39; 2:216; 9:41; 9:123; 66:9; 9:73; 8:65; 8:66; 47:4—15; 8:12; 69:30—33; 8:15—18; 25:52; 9:39; 9:111; 3: 169—171; 4:100; 48:29; 49:15; 2:154; 3:157—158; 8:59—60; 9:2—3; 9:29; 8:67; 4:84; 29:6; 29:69; 61:9—13; 9:36; 9:5; 9:14; 9:20—22; 4:95—96; 8:72—74; 3:142)
* verses which promoted, on grounds of religion, feelings of enmity, hatred and ill-will between different religious communities in India (i.e., 4:101; 60:4; 58:23; 9:7; 8:13—14; 8:55; 25:55; 5:72; 9:23; 9:28; 3:28; 3:118; 4:144; 5:14; 5:64; 5:18; 5:51)
* verses which insulted other religions as well as the religious beliefs of other communities in India (i.e., 5:17; 4:157; 5:116—118; 98:6; 68:8—13; 38:55—57; 22:19—21; 22:56—57; 5:36; 15:2; 72:14—15;41:33; 4:125; 25:27—29; 26:96—99; 3:85; 8:38; 31:13; 29:41—42; 37:22—25; 37:26—32; 25:17—19; 7:173; 21:66—67; 21:98—100; 16:20—21; 6:22—23; 6:40—41; 6:148; 2;221; 24:3)

Following Thomas Jefferson

As all the "liberals" or "secular humanists" and their like are so enslaved to the idea of a full separation of religion in all public places as based on President Jefferson's private letter to some Baptists and expanded by Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, a veteran of the KKK's hate philosophy, I offer the following two quotes by Thomas Jefferson upon which to build some further changes in our Republic.

"I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our constitution. I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of our government to the general principles of its constitution; I mean an additional article, taking from the federal government the power of borrowing." (In a letter to John Taylor; November 26, 1798).

I think that there is little doubt that the various abuses of federal power (eg "Pork", "ear marks", election corruption) are all driven by the federal government's ability to borrow money to pay for the special interests represented by such evils. THEREFORE, I follow Thomas Jefferson's suggestion and offer the following amendment.

"The government of the United States shall not borrow money except during the first year of a declared war and then only for the strict purposes of national defense.

Standing to challenge violations of this amendment are assigned to any of the Governors of the Several States and to such other persons as the Congress shall designate.

This amendment becomes effective five-years after ratification."

In addressing the methods of interpreting the Constitution, President Jefferson wrote: "On every question of construction let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning can be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one which was passed." It is difficult to put this in a legal form to enforce the underlying concepts; But, I will attempt to do so by another proposed amendment to the Constitution.

"The Supreme and inferior courts of the United States of America shall, in ruling on our laws, first adhere to the exact words of the Constitution and then to the intent of those who drafted and ratified them. Only thereafter may such courts apply other sources upon which to make their rulings. In no instance shall the decisions of foreign courts or other foreign bodies be used for such purposes except as required by such treaties confirmed by the Senate.

The Congress, by a simple majority of votes in its two houses or a majority of the Legislatures of the Several States shall have the authority to overturn any court's decision they deem to be in violation of this amendment."

Of course, I could address Thomas Jefferson's statements on the need to, from time-to-time, nourish the tree-of-liberty with the blood of tyrants; But, I will leave that to another day and to your imagination as to my opinions as how to apply that statement

The PIG to the CONSTITUTION: Book Review

Gutzman, Kevin R. C. (J.D., Ph.D.)
The Politically Incorrect Guide To The Constitution
Regnery Publishing, Inc.; Washington, DC; 2007

DISCLAIMER #1: I am not an Attorney nor a professionally trained Political Scientist or Historian.

This book is NOT an "easy read"! By applying my academic and self education AND by stretching my mind I was able, I think, to understand the author's positions and reasoning. I expect that you will be able to do the same. It will be worth your time and effort to do so.

Dr. Gutzman takes a very confrontational and different view of our Constitution, history, the Courts, political movements, our laws and the like. I suspect that most will disagree with him on most of his points. However, even in such disagreement there is a reasonable expectation of new thoughts for old.

DISCLAIMER #2: I will not share my agreement or objections to Dr. Gutzman's positions with you; But, only give you a "taste" of them as provided here.

1. The greatest individual enemies of the Constitution in our history, based on their actions, were Chief Justice Marshall and President Lincoln.
2. The greatest collective enemies of the Constitution are most Federal judges and their Law Professor worshipers.
3. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution was NOT lawfully adopted.
4. The State of Texas was NOT lawfully admitted to the Union.
5. The "Separation Of Church And State" position of the Courts is basically an anti-Christian (Especially anti-Catholic) one based on a purposeful misinterpretation of a private letter by President Jefferson AND upon the hate philosophy and positions of the KKK as inflicted upon us by Justice Hugo Black.
6. The Southern States were legally justified in leaving the USA.
7. The States may establish official religions as the Constitution only prohibits the USA from doing so.

The above will give you a small part of Dr. Gutzman's mind provoking (If not mind warping) positions. Read, think, reflect!

Theodore Roosevelt On Immigrants

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Accepting Muslims & Islam

The current issue of Newsweek magazine had an extensive, essentially "poof piece", article on Muslims and Islam in the USA. Below is the core of my letter to that rag's editors.

I will accept and trust Muslims when they, as individuals and collectives, openly, firmly and forever reject and condemn all the parts of the Koran which allow or encourage, if not command, the use of murder, rape, genocide, robbery, perpetual war with "unbelievers" and unequal treatment of women and non-Muslims to further the causes of Islam and of individual Muslims. Until 90%-plus of Muslims do that, I will consider Islam another, very dangerous, criminal-terrorist movement (To be destroyed) and treat Muslims as I would Nazis (As condemned criminals).

Worst Than War---The Pope Must Rethink

So--The Pope recently have been quoted as calling war "useless slaughter".

But, there are worst things than war, for without just war the following would have occurred: Saddam Husein would have continued his attempts at various campaigns of genocide against the Kurds, Marsh Arabs, Iranians and anyone else who earned his displeasure (Which cost well over three millions of lives by the time Iraq was invaded); North Korea would have brought the South of that land into the starving, slave-state which is the North; Hitler and his foolish allies would have continued to murder Jews, Gypsies, Slavs and others to add to the many millions so killed by Nazism before the end of his terror; Imperial Japan would have enslaved the entire East; The enslavement of Blacks would have continued without the military force of the British Navy and the most bloody war that the USA has ever fought; Islam would have continued to enslave the world save for the wars that drove that horrid ideology out of much of Europe; And, too many other cases of just war doing final good to note here.

If wars are to cease on this world, then there must first be a way of halting such evils as are noted above. Until that happens, we must study History and be prepared to wage such wars as destroy them and the men who support such horrors.

Votes VS. John Doe Protection

Perhaps we should ask Senators Kohl and Feingold why they voted against giving protection against punitive lawsuits to those good citizens who might note and report-to-authorities suspicious behaviors by persons who might be terrorists. We might also ask them how often they fly on commercial airlines.

Now I must ask myself: If I am at the airport and see one of those senators boarding a commercial aircraft (Assuming that they do not travel only by privately owned executive jets) AND see someone behaving in a very suspicious, pre-terrorism, manner, DO I REPORT IT?

Turning About The Bill Of Rights---Free Exercise

Mr. Christopher Orlet (1) recently pointed out (2) that the most recent consideration of the Second Amendment (3) to the US Constitution has been to consider its first clause ("A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state," as far less important than the balance of that article and only a preface to its latter words, "... the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.". This shift is apparently that of a majority of the US Circuit Court Of Appeals earlier this year in Parker VS. District Of Columbia. Very strangely, that shift towards making the rights of the People a matter for individuals, not some collective is supported by that one time mainstay of leftist judicial thought, Harvard's Professor Lawrence Tribe. That shift in thinking was, even more strangely, acknowledged by the New York Times.

Therefore, I suggest that we reexamine the First Amendment (4) to our Constitution in the same manner of making all of it apply to the People as individuals, with its first clause ("Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of a religion,...") as only a preface referring to the early desire that our National Government should NOT have a state religion as did England, with its Church of England, Scotland, with its "Kirk" and the other governments of the World with like established Faiths or ideologies. [We should also remember that some of the 13 original States maintained "official religions" after the ratification of the Bill of Rights; And, that Thomas Jefferson's famous or infamous letter about a "wall of separation" was a private and NOT a public statement AND not one reflecting the thoughts of the authors of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.]

After all, the balance of the First Amendment (As to free speech and free press and assembly) have been held to be rights of individuals, as such OR voluntarily as collectives).

Therefore, I fail to understand why the noted "free exercise of religion" should (Only in recent years) be more limited and driven out of public forums (Schools, public buildings, parks, etc.) than that of the distribution of newspapers, pamphlets and public speech on other, non-religious, topics or positions--All of which are the rights of the People as individuals.

I think it past the time when the "free exercise of religion" should be judicially reevaluated and a conclusion reached that each person has that right in ALL public places. (Of course, those judges who are the high-priests or mullahs of the "Law As State Religion" will oppose that to maintain the power of their ideology/religion. as will those illiberal liberals who wish democracy only to empower themselves ).

(3) A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
(4) Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Churchill On Islam

Quotation of the Decade?
Gregory Smith offers this Churchill comment on that great religion we are now fighting against, from The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248 50 (London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899).

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property‹either as a child, a wife, or a concubine‹must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science‹the science against which it had vainly struggled‹the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."

The science of which Churchill wrote is becoming a victim to the West's equivalent of Islam, "Political Correctness" as supported by the also horrid religion of Atheism.


What? No Apologies?

Mr. David Sanders, a Catholic educator, was falsely accused and wrongfully convicted, in Milwaukee County, of "Sexual Assault Of A Child". At the July 17th court hearing releasing that victim of injustice from custody, Judge Jeffery A. Wagner dismissed him from custody with a very curt "Good luck sir.".

As the august representative of the Law and the People, Judge Wagner should have issued, from the bench, an abject apology to Mr. Wagner and the People on behalf of the Court, DA's office, the Jury and the police authorities involved in this miscarriage of justice.

It might be well for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to apologize for its unbalanced coverage of allegations against the clergy and other employees of the Catholic Church (As opposed to the essential non-coverage of like crimes by public school employees). That bias may have laid the groundwork for the two hour jury mis-finding of guilt in this case.

Judge Wagner was so sure of the validity of the original conviction that, at that time, he went out of his way to declare it a proper judgment.

We should remind him of that lack of his own good judgment if he chooses to run for reelection!

Doing Citizen's Duty With A Knife

On the night of July 15-16, 2007 a local armed robber make a considerable mistake. After first attempting to pull away a purse from its owner, he then pulled out a gun. For his efforts he was taught that a knife can put a robber in the hospital, in critical condition, and that there are free citizens who ignore Wisconsin's foolish law against carrying concealed weapons as the police always seem to be too late to prevent such robberies and other crimes.

Now the police are wasting tax-payers' money by searching for the good citizen who did more to prevent crime than they did.

Perhaps a large number of armed, law abiding, citizens with licenses to carry concealed weapons could do more to suppress banditry and other crimes in our State.

History---Self-Defense Of Civilization

About the year 1200AD a sect (Called the "Cathars" or "Albigensians") began to control a large part of France. Its progress was fueled by a philosophy and practices which did not recognize the property rights of those who had spent their life forces earning those lands and goods AND that the world was, itself, evil. Had this sect been successful, it would have meant the end of the drive towards civilization and progress as was just beginning in the areas of law, trade, learning, practical charity and the like.

In suppressing this destructive and evil sect, it was necessary to mount military crusades when reason and reasoned arguments OR application of ordinary law (Which were ALL attempted first) failed to convince those others that their peers had property rights and the right to behave as if the world and the people and things within it were essentially good. The chief moral problem facing those crusaders was that it was impossible to determine, from outward appearance, which Frenchmen were members of this sect, supporters of it (For the sake of stealing others' property) OR were opposed to it and supporters of the essential truths of civilization.

The moral and ethics experts of that time came to the conclusion that, to save civilization, it was necessary to follow the principle of "Kill them all! Surely God knows which belong to Him!".

We now have in our communities groups of persons who hold to an equally dangerous, property-seizing and civilization-hating ideology called "Islam". Some (Such as the UK's terrorist physicians) dress as we do and we are unable to tell which follow the horrid teachings (Murder, rape, genocide, robbery, perpetual war with "unbelievers") of that sect and which do not. Even among those who dress in a distinctive, non-Western style, we cannot make that differentiation between those who intend to kill us and to destroy civilization VS. those who have remained away from the Evil teachings of that ideology called "Islam".

As reason, ordinary law and "political correctness" have failed to stop the loyal followers of Mohammed from evil deeds, how long must we wait before applying, as the only effective measure of self-defense, the crusader's moral choice to all Muslims? If that measure of self-defense is executed, blood will flow. The only question is: Our blood or that of the murderous, raping, genocidal followers of Islam?

I think there is little doubt that blood will flow in our streets in a Islam-VS.-Civilization war. Here, the only questions is "When?":.

Of course, we could first make a last moral decision and declare, by Statute and Constitutional Amendment (OR Act-Of-Parliament in the UK and like nations), that Islam is not a religion, but a criminal-terrorist movement and command that all of its followers leave the USA (OR, the UK and like nations)--Or be treated as those waging a self-declared war against the USA (OR, the UK and like nations) and be destroyed.

MECCA DELENDA EST--------------------DEUS VULT

Solving Wisconsin's Budget Income Problem

Due to the claimed needs for more money for Wisconsin's existing and proposed State programs, I suggest the following taxes be used to pay for such:
1. A one cent ($0.01) on every copy of all daily newspapers published in Wisconsin (Less the copies sent to other states so as to prevent any claims of violations of the "Commerce Clause" of the US Constitution); And,
2. A five-cent ($0.05) tax on every kilowatt-hour of power used by all of Wisconsin's radio and TV stations.

Certainly, such taxes are not applied directly to our fellow citizens (As some claimed about those proposed in our State Capitol) and that the news papers and broadcast media would "eat" that cost of operation as it is so much in the public interest to support those all so necessary programs of public spending.

Right! If you believe that, I have a bridge and some gold mining stocks to sell to you!

Public Health Care Check List

For those who are considering the various proposals as to a government run health care program for Wisconsin, I suggest that they ask themselves:
1. What is the wait for various life saving or necessary quality of life (Non-cosmetic) surgeries in the USA VS. the "waiting list" Canadian and British programs;
2. Would most be happy with a government run medical program in the model of the VA hospitals, about which much has been written of late as to its "problems";
3. Would US citizens and legal immigrants be pleased with any such system which gives medical benefits to illegal aliens and those in the USA only for an education, both without any apparent intent to make long term contributions to our economy and our society;
4. How much of the money taken for any such program would be
spent on bureaucratic overhead-and-waste rather than real program benefits as is so common in all government programs (eg The Milwaukee Public Schools OR the University of Wisconsin);
5. Is there a way to make our present health care and pharmaceutical programs truly competitive and more efficient as an alternative to more government support of its own empire builders, bureaucratic leaches, time-servers, bought-or-leased politicians and the like?

I Have A Dream--RE: Eugene Kane, et. al.

The "I have a dream" speech of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. provided a drumbeat call to the reformation of action and thought in the USA as to the future of race relationships in this nation. It might surprise those who would judge me only on my public statements as to the responsibility of Blacks to now free themselves from self-slavery to the minority of their race who continue to inflict crimes upon them than I actually supported and support Rev. King and most of his positions.

However, my dream does have a dark side in that it has scenes of Jessie (The Extortionist) Jackson, Al (The Mouth) Sharpton, Michael (The Criminal) Jackson-McGee, Jr. and Eugene (The Excuser) Kane all standing in rags, on a cold and windy street corner, begging their bread as they no longer have incomes derived from stirring up what is left of race hatred in the USA.

Justice & False Accusers


I have long maintained that the Church has become obsessed with "mercy" and has forgotten that the maintenance of the Order (The Evil One's main technique and goal is disorder) basic to its preservation and the protection of all of its members requires a balancing attention to and execution of justice. Those persons include falsely accused (Of sexual and other offenses) priests and other employees of the Church.

The cases of the priests mentioned in your very well written July 15, 2007 story, "Helping Accused Priests Is His Calling", brings to our close attention that need to re-balance mercy and justice by such actions as:
1. Insuring that a civil action is filed against the false accuser and
those assisting or encouraging her/him as soon as possible and
well within the statute of limitations for such actions;
2. If that statute-of-limitations is longer for bringing actions
against accused sexual predators than against their accusers,
use that fact as a defense against late accusations; AND,
3. Bring criminal charges against false accusers (And, any
conspirators with them) as soon as possible, but well within
the time limits set by law to insure that justice is done and to
give others who might bring false accusations some pause
to think before they do evil.

Some would say the Step #3 above is inconsistent with mercy and
forgiveness as taught by the Church. They are wrong! Prevention of
evil is better than forgiveness AND forgiveness requires confession or finding of fault and penance--The civil penance contained within our Criminal Codes. (When such false accusers are found guilty of crimes, then both ask for restitution and such mercy as the courts, who deal with what belongs to Caesar, may deem appropriate in cases where an attempt was made to destroy another person.)

Please Travel To Cuba

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Community Columnist Nancy Bauer-King's July 13th offering, "America can be a better neighbor", supported (Among other things) allowing our citizens to more freely travel to Cuba. It may seem strange to those who know of me as a conservative, I do support her position for herself and those who share her positions---If, and only if, such travel is only on a one way basis to be followed by an application for Cuban citizenship. If Ms. Bauer-King does that and continues to speak out as is allowed to do in the USA, she will get the great opportunity to see more of Cuba than do most of the illegal travelers there---By a long-term and one-way visit to Castro's prisons and torture chambers.

If she is willing to post a performance bond as to such one-way travel, I am willing to contribute to her travel fund.

The Problem With Whitney Gould

Ms. Whitney Gould is the architecture writer for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Ms. Whitney Gould (Featured in Milwaukee Magazine's August, 2007 issue) does come from a "good family", has a credible history of formal schooling and has established a record of professional writing. But, Ms. Gould is NOT "educated" as she lacks courtesy. I have sent her notes: Praising her columns; Criticizing her writings or opinions; Suggesting topics for future columns; And (Perhaps, not gently) reminding her that good architecture is first good engineering and only thereafter good design or art---To which she has not demonstrated even the courtesy of acknowledgment, let alone meaningful comments in reply (Except, perhaps, on one, very long ago, occasion). In fact, I have stopped sending her any notes from my "commoner" level of society as it appears that I am neither rich nor powerful enough, in her restricted world, to merit her attention and good manners.

Disease Vectors & Male Homosexuals

Milwaukee Magazine's August, 2007 issue contained the story "Gay in the City" which brought to my mind the possible need to cut away all questions of religion or morality when the behaviors of male homosexuals are discussed and limit debate and actions to the purely scientific base of proven public health practices.

From a purely scientific point-of-view, most male homosexuals (Who have clearly demonstrated a general lack of self control and sense of the "common good") represent a disease vector as do the plague bearing fleas on rats, the flies and cockroaches who hang about "unprotected" food and garbage, mosquitoes who carry malaria and other diseases and other like threats to the health of all People.

If the general and Jewish-Christian foundations of morality are ignored (As is the constant drum beat of the homosexual lobby) and only the science of successful public health programs is applied, the best prevention of any epidemic or endemic disease, including HIV/AIDS, is to liquidate the disease vector(s) most responsible for the spread of the attacking illnesses. Therefore, we kill rats and fleas, destroy flies and cockroaches as much as is possible, destroy mosquitoes and ...!

"Avoiding The M-Word" ("Muslim")


The Boston Globe
Avoiding the M-word

By Jeff Jacoby, Globe Columnist | July 11, 2007

IS RADICAL ISLAM connected to terrorism? Notable British voices spoke out on that subject after Britain's recent terrorist near-misses -- the two unexploded car bombs in London's West End and the fiery SUV rammed into the main terminal at Glasgow's international airport. Consider what four of those voices had to say:

One declared that the word "Muslim" must not be used in connection with terrorism, and insisted that even the phrase "war on terror" should be scrapped.

The second likewise cautioned against pointing a finger at Islam, contending that in London, "Muslims are . . . less likely to support the use of violence to achieve political ends than non-Muslims."

The third, asked whether Muslim extremists might be responsible for the attempted atrocities in London and Glasgow, counseled: "Let's avoid presumptions. . . It can be the work of Muslims, Christians, Jews, or Buddhists."

By contrast, the fourth noted the resemblance of the latest terror attempts to "other recent British Islamic extremist plots," pinpointed "Islamic theology" as "the real engine of our violence," and described British jihadists as "mindless killers" who have "declared war upon the whole world."

The first three statements, disingenuous but quite politically correct, were made respectively by (1) Britain's new prime minister, Gordon Brown, (2) London Mayor Ken Livingstone, and (3) Daud Abdullah, deputy secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain. Just days before the second anniversary of the deadly 7/7 London transit bombings, and less than a year since 24 British Muslims were arrested for plotting to blow up passenger jets over the Atlantic, the three men spoke as if they had no inkling that Britain is a battleground in militant Islam's global jihad -- as if only a boor or a bigot could imagine that Muslims might somehow be linked to the car bombs in London and Glasgow.

And the fourth statement? Those were the blunt words of Hassan Butt, a onetime spokesman for the radical Islamist organization al-Muhajiroun, who has renounced his former life. In an essay published last week in the Daily Mail, Butt emphasized that jihadists are motivated not by opposition to British or US foreign policy but by a fundamentalist theology that seeks to subject the entire world to "Islamic justice." Radical Imams teach their followers that they must fight for Dar al-Islam (the House of Islam) against Dar al-Harb (the House of War -- i.e., infidels to be defeated). And "in Dar el-Harb, anything goes, including the treachery and cowardice of attacking civilians."

By turning a blind eye to the radical theology of the jihadists, Butt says, mainstream Muslim institutions make it easy for the extremists to recruit new followers. His words apply equally to political leaders like Brown and Livingstone: "They refuse to broach the difficult and often complex truth that Islam can be interpreted as condoning violence against the unbeliever -- and instead repeat the mantra that Islam is peace, and hope that all of this debate will go away."

Wars cannot be won through denial and willful blindness. Yet in ways large and small, Western leaders and institutions deliberately avert their gaze from the reality of the Islamist threat. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon blames global warming, not Sudan's jihadist regime, for the genocide being carried out in Darfur. A leading candidate to succeed President Bush, Illinois Senator Barack Obama, maintains a lavish campaign website, complete with detailed position papers that have nothing to say about radical Islam's aggressive war. Another candidate, former senator John Edwards, prepares a 5,200-word speech to the Council on Foreign Relations -- and devotes just 19 of them to the menace of Islamic extremism.

The obfuscation is sometimes almost comical. The New York Times, reporting the Glasgow attack on Page 1, carefully avoided using the M-word to identify Britain's Muslim terrorists. Instead it attributed the 7/7 bombings to Britain's "disenfranchised South Asian population" and reported that the terrorists in Glasgow "were South Asian." (As Joel Mowbray pointed out for Powerline, Indian Hindus are the United Kingdom's largest South Asian demographic.)

Similarly, seven reporters contributed to AP's story on the arrested jihad-doctors ("Diverse group allegedly in British plot"), yet somehow missed the radical theology they presumably shared.

Political correctness is no strategy for victory. Islamic fascists will not hate us less if we avoid all mention of the theology that inflames them. Winning the war the jihadists have declared -- the war of Dar al-Islam and Dar al-Harb -- begins with moral clarity. Denial is a luxury we cannot afford.

Stacked Deck Of Race Cards

The two July 10th "Milwaukee Journal Sentinel" stories under the headline "Courts faulted on race" provides false impressions of the Milwaukee and Racine County courts by withholding such information as: The proportion of Milwaukee County's minority residents who are ineligible for jury duty as they are either not citizens or are still serving sentences after felony convictions; And, the proportion (Whites VS. Blacks Vs. "Others") sentenced, in Racine County, to actual prison terms who have prior convictions, especially for assaultive offenses, or "read ins" of crimes not charged but admitted to by offenders.

The Racine County report also failed to note what was the impact of "aggravating" and "mitigating" factors in the noted sentences to prison on a basis of race.

I was unaware that the Federal Courts use a variety of "affirmative action" to give Blacks greater power than others by bypassing consideration of the above disqualification factors to set quotas (Falsely claimed to be goals) for minority representation on its juries. This is something that the Congress should look at and correct.

Judge Brennen was right to criticize the noted report; But, for the wrong reasons. The authority to manage the Courts is delegated to judicial officials by legislative bodies (Most of the members of such bodies are, for better or worse, attorneys) and NOT inherent in some special "legal competence" held by judicial officials.

Just as is the Federal juror selection process, the noted stories represent a stacked deck of race cards.

Holy See, Islam, Reality & Duty

The National Catholic Register's July 8, 2007 issue contained the following stories: "Gaza Horror: Christians Struggle To Survive" (Detailing the Islamic crimes against Christians and the Faith in the Gaza strip); "Ambassador Yelda Sets Record Straight: The Christians of Iraq Will Not Leave" (Providing information and disinformation as to the serious pressures under which the Faith exists in that land); And, most strangely, "Cardinal: Pope Shows Zeal for Dialogue" (In which Jean-Louis Cardinal Tauran claims that His Holiness is committed to dialogue with Muslims).

It appears most strongly that the Holy See has fallen out of contact with the real world as individuals and a collective as too many there neither are aware of such current events as was reported in the noted issue (Or as are occurring in such places as the Sudan, Turkey, Egypt, etc.) nor recall the lessons which should have been taught by 1400-years of Islamic attacks on the Faith by those following the unchangeable teachings of the Koran. Both represent a pathological illness or actual criminal conduct to the harm of the Faithful throughout the world and an abrogation of the duty of the Church to protect the children of God.

Death Doctors Of Islam

Most Americans where shocked when it was revealed that Doctors of Medicine were involved in attempted acts of terroristic-murder in the UK and other places, perhaps even at the planning level in the USA.

It may be that the article below will provide an understanding of the Islamic view of medicine which is, as for all other trades and professions, that all human behavior must be subjected to the demands of the Koran and other Islamic teachings which include permission, if not commands, to kill for that ideology.

The reader should consider that article in considering the use of a Muslim doctor (Or, any other person who might suddenly elect to "commit" jihad). The public official should consider the matter of specially considering Muslims as a real-and-present-danger to the public health as licensed physicians.

Compared to the troops described below, Dr. Mengele looks good!


Doctors of Death
By Andrew G. Bostom | July 9, 2007
The London and Glasgow terror attacks have highlighted the prominent role played by Muslim physicians during the global resurgence of jihad witnessed over the past four decades. Although such violent actions targeting innocent life were openly sanctioned by Osama bin Laden’s Muslim physician mentor, Abdallah Azzam, (and indeed the London/Glasgow plots may have been approved by Bin Laden himself), they represent the most profound violation of basic medical ethics, and what it means to be a physician.
Canadian-born physician Sir William Osler, MD (1849-1919) revolutionized the teaching and training curricula of North American medical schools. Within 7-months of his death on December 29, 1919, Osler delivered a lecture entitled, “The Old Humanities and the New Science” celebrating the strong humanistic aspirations of modern medicine even in the face of the tragic carnage of World War I. He observed that,

The dynamo replaced the steam-engine, radiant energy revealed the hidden secrets of matter, to the conquest of the earth was added the control of the air and the mastery of the deep. Nor was it only an Age of Force. Never before had man done so much for his brother, the victory over the powers of Nature meant also glorious victories of peace; pestilences were checked, the cry of the poor became articulate, and to help the life of the submerged half became a sacred duty of the other.

The fulminant recrudescence of jihadism during the latter half of the 20th century through the present, has been accompanied by a grotesque distortion of Osler’s vision: a burgeoning cadre of Muslim physicians—epitomized by those linked to the recent London and Glasgow terror plots —lacking the most basic professional and personal ethics, have adopted a warped credo, albeit consistent with the doctrine of jihad war, which has been aptly characterized as “terror is healing”. Indeed, even the much lionized “progressive” Muslim theologian Mahmoud Muhammad Taha, who was hanged (1985) as an “apostate” in a transparent act of political oppression by the Sudanese government, and recently hailed by journalist George Packer as the “anti-(Islamic fundamentalist Sayyid) Qutb”, made the following hideous analogy between jihad war, and the surgical instrument of healing, a physician’s lancet/scalpel:

Islam used persuasion for thirteen years in propagating its clearly valid message…When the addressees failed to discharge properly the[ir] duties…the Prophet was appointed as their guardian…once they embraced the new religion [i.e., by coercion]…the sword was suspended…and [they] were penalized according to new laws. Hence the development of Islamic Shari’a law…
In justifying the use of the sword, we may describe it as a surgeon’s lancet, and not a butcher’s knife…We [the Muslims] have enacted fighting with the sword in order to curtail the freedom of those who abuse it, so the sword brings them to their senses, thereby allowing them to earn their freedom and benefit from their life [note: “freedom as perfect slavery to Allah”, the Sufi notion of Ibn Arabi, perhaps?]

Suffering death by the sword in this life is really an aspect of suffering hell in the next life, since both are punishments for disbelief…for the disbelievers the law of war, and hardship of iron

Seminal jihadist ideologue Abdallah Azzam, a Palestinian Muslim physician, and Osama bin Laden’s primary religious instuctor, represents the apotheosis of this modern jihad terrorist “healer” as murderer mentality. But Azzam is merely representative of an entire genre of like-minded Muslim physicians, as catalogued briefly by the indefatigable lawyer and investigative journalist Debbie Schlussel:

* Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri--Al-Qaeda mastermind and number two man, reportedly a surgeon and/or psychiatrist;
* Dr. Mohammad Rabi Al-Zawahiri--Ayman's father and a Muslim Brotherhood enthusiast, pharmacologist and professor at Ain Shams Medical School;
* Dr. "Abu Hafiza"--Al-Qaeda master planner who was the brains and commander of the Moroccan cell that provided logistics for the 9/11 attacks, and he recruited Qaeda insurgents for battles in Fallujah, Moroccan psychiatrist;
* Dr. Abdel Aziz Al-Rantisi--Late HAMAS leader, pediatrician;
* Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahar--HAMAS co-founder and leader, surgeon and lecturer at the Islamic University in Gaza;
* Dr. Fathi Abd Al-Aziz Shiqaqi--Late founder of Islamic Jihad and active in Fatah, physician;
* Drs. Laila Al-Marayati and Riad Abdelkarim--Both work with and/or are top officials of KinderUSA (son of the Holy Land Foundation), which Al-Marayati voluntarily shutdown before the FBI did, as it was openly funding HAMAS "martyrs." Abdelkarim went to "Palestine" in May or so of 2002 with Dr. Dallel Mohammed (not an MD). They took monies collected at an April 2002 fundraiser and were caught by Israeli security handing over the funds to a HAMAS operative. They were detained in an Israeli jail, and a large orgy of publicity ensued. The two came back to the U.S. as Muslim "martyrs" used it to raise money for more.
* Dr. Mohammed Jamil Abdelqader Asha--a 26-year-old neurologist who was arrested and is in custody as a suspect in the attempted London bombings, foiled Friday. He was born in Saudi Arabia, is of Palestinian origin, and has a Jordanian passport. His 27-year-old wife, a medical assistant, was also arrested for the foiled bombings;
* Dr. Bilal Talal Abdul Samad Abdulla--an Iraqi from Baghdad who was also arrested and is in custody as a suspect in the attempted Glasgow International Airport bombing, foiled Saturday. He was reportedly in the Jeep that drove into the airport, and is suffering from third-degree burns;
* Dr. Mohammed Haneef--an Indian Muslim arrested in Australia on Monday night in custody as a suspect in the attempted British terrorist bombing plots of last week; and the remainder of the eight London/Glasgow terror suspects.

Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Ohio chapter board chair Dr. Mobin-Uddin in her deceitful and treacly apologetic, “Betrayal of Our Faith”, ignored this ugly living legacy of Muslim physicians serving as leaders of murderous jihad terror organizations, and expressed “outrage” with those she maintains only “profess” to be Muslims. To support this latter dubious claim she trotted out a disingenuously redacted summary of Koran 5:32, which according to her, “equates saving one life with saving the lives of all of humanity.”
The entire verse Koran 5:32 , quoted in full context, with the intimately related verse, Koran 5:33 comprises a dire warning to Jews, admonishing them “Behave, or else”.
(5:32) Therefore We prescribed for the Children of Israel that whoso slays a soul not to retaliate for a soul slain, nor for corruption done in the land, shall be as if he had slain mankind altogether; and whoso gives life to a soul, shall be as if he has given life to mankind altogether. Our Messengers have already come to them with the clear signs; then many of them thereafter commit excesses in the earth. (5:33) This is the recompense of those who fight against God and His Messenger, and hasten about the earth, to do corruption there: they shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall alternately be struck off; or they shall be banished from the land. That is a degradation for them in this world; and in the world to come awaits them a mighty chastisement
Thus Koran 5:32/33, as Ibn Warraq has noted , do not abjure violence, instead they aggressively make clear that anyone opposing the Muslim prophet Muhammad will be killed, crucified, mutilated, or banished. These Koranic verses are in fact a perversion of the noble sentiments expressed earlier in Mishna, Sanhedrin, IV, 5:

Thus was created a single man, to teach us that every person who loses a single soul, it shall be written about him as if he has lost the entire world, and every person who sustains a single soul, it shall be written, about him as if he has sustained the entire world.

The ugly and dangerous contemporary phenomenon of Muslim physician-jihadists represents a complete distortion of Sir Wlliam Osler’s noble early 20th century vision. This phenomenon is but a particularly heinous manifestation of the jihad ideology wreaking bloody havoc across the globe. Intellectual honesty, not continued Muslim denial and deceit, offer the only hope for initiating a long and difficult recovery from the fully recrudescent scourge of jihad. The late Sudanese leader John Garang posed for all mankind the apposite existential question:

Is the call for jihad against a particular people a religious right of those calling for it, or is it a human rights violation against the people upon whom jihad is declared and waged?

Blending With "Illegals"----NOT

After reading Ms. Pilar Melero's July 9th column in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "Immigration reform or not, cultures still will blend beautifully", I wonder how she plans to blend the fine immigrants described below into our culture, except that of prisons, TB hospitals and welfare programs---Where we already have enough of our citizens and legal immigrants.

Below you will find a sampling of those fine ("Illegal") immigrants she would welcome into the USA by not fully securing our border with Mexico..

These fine fellows include all drug smugglers, terrorists (As in the Ft. Dix gang), bearers of untreatable diseases (eg Drug resistant TB), members of very organized Latino gangs (Often previously deported), identity thieves, job thieves, welfare leaches, tax evaders, murderers and such like contributors to our nation's welfare.

As for myself, most citizens and most legal aliens, we do NOT wish to blend with a culture of under educated, criminal, diseased and economically under qualified violators of our democratically passed laws regarding immigration! I suggest that both Ms. Melero and your editors recognize that fact AND that all newspapers present more commentators who support reality rather than the rose hued concepts inflicted on us by such as that community columnist.

Innovation, Art, Engineering & Fluff

I truly love art, especially the nitty-gritty portrayals of industrial and scientific subjects which are apparently at the core of the MU and MSOE collections noted in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's July 9th edition and to which those schools will pay a great deal of money to house.

I must ask myself: Does that investment of money have anything to further innovation and other engineering progress OR is such only an attempt by school officials to fluff up their "image" for people who understand neither engineering nor scientific-innovation?

I suspect the knowledge of engineering innovation in such an art museum official as was quoted; Thinking that it might have been better to approach a director of engineering at some such firm as GE medical as to the importance, to real engineers and innovators of such displays of art--Against the use of such moneys for scholarships or real research.

Real Public Service For Congressmen, Etc.

Some time ago I wrote the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel against the views of an alleged military veteran whose unopposed anti-Iraq War column appeared in that paper--Perhaps as an advertisement for his upcoming book (Of fiction?). Now, let me put forth some even more radical ideas as to Congressmen, Editors, Ministers-of-Religion, Teachers and others who put forth their ideas as to military affairs and other matters of national or other public service.

I consider all such persons as UNQUALIFIED unless they have previously and honorably served for 20-plus months as a member of our Armed Forces, Coast Guard, in-the-field Peace Corps member, full-time fire fighter or peace officer OR in some other low paying job which reflects danger-to-self, truly public service and a willingness to sacrifice income, status and life to serve her/his fellow citizens or those of other nations. (I do NOT exempt lawyers or doctors or professors or clergy! However, I will provisionally accept as qualified such persons as John McCain or Jack Murtha, who may have been "inside the belt line" too long to remember the real meaning of their service.)

I am not quite ready to recommend that we limit the vote to such persons "qualified by public service" unless they are more than 30-years of age; But, I am thinking about it! I am closer to recommending such a pre-condition for election to the Congress or appointment to the judiciary or a cabinet level position in the President's administration---Especially as to National Defense posts.

We all should consider the question: Should every vote count OR should only qualified voters vote AND what qualifies a voter other than an accident of birth.

Usual Suspects---Stem Cell "Research"

The history of human greed in the medical field is not new. Why, there was once a family which had made a breakthrough in obstetric devices, but kept them a family-trade secret to the benefit of their pockets and to the shame of the medical profession and all of humanity--As well as to the deaths of many mothers and infants.

The opposition of our drug cartels (Excuse me, pharmaceutical companies) to the use of herbs and of drugs and medical procedures developed outside of the USA is less well known; But, just as economic--And, shameful.

The same applies to the (Almost?) pathological drive of some, economically very interested, individuals and organizations as to misusing embryonic stem cells in what may very well be a fruitless search for "medical cures" and a better search for money to support the life-styles of the interested parties.

Follow the Money: Stem Cells and Subsidies
by Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., Senior Fellow in Economics
Last week the scientific world was abuzz with the news that adult stem cells could be used to regenerate tissues and cure diseases. This week, the political world is abuzz with the news of President Bush’s veto of Congressional legislation and his own alternative Executive Order for Expanding Approved Stem Cell Lines in Ethically Responsible Ways. While the Usual Suspects are busy denouncing Bush for being anti-science, the media debate completely obscures the economic interests at stake. Big bio-tech companies stand to make money from government subsidy of embryonic stem cell research. By contrast, the use of stem cells from non-destructive sources have already produced cures, and will ultimately be cheaper to the health care consumer.
Scientists have successfully used stem cells found in the blood of umbilical cords to treat leukemia and other malignancies, thalassemia and other blood disorders, immuno-deficiencies and other conditions. In fact, stem cells from adults and umbilical cord blood have been used in the treatment of over 70 different diseases and medical conditions. Embryonic stem cell research is still in its, well, embryonic stages.
The use of umbilical cord blood is more humane than the use of embryos for two reasons. First, no human life has to be destroyed to produce the umbilical cord blood. These stem cells result from a live birth. We don’t have to convince each other about when life begins. Everyone who wants to save lives through regenerative therapy can use umbilical cord blood in good conscience.
Second, the use of umbilical cord blood will undoubtedly be less costly than the use of embryonic stem cells. The supply of umbilical cords is pretty much unlimited. We can get a new batch from every newly born baby. New parents can ask their hospitals how they can donate their baby’s umbilical cord blood, for their own family’s use or for the use of strangers. By contrast, the supply of embryonic stem cells has inherent ethical and economic limits.
Advocates of unlimited experimentation on human embryos often claim that 400,000 frozen embryos would just go to waste unless they are made available for research. Yet few couples sign the waiver allowing their unused embryos to be donated for research. A 2003 Rand Corporation report found that only 2.8 percent, or 11,000 frozen embryos are available for research that involves their destruction.
Therefore, even under the most favorable of circumstances, the number of “discarded” embryos would not be sufficient to generate the genetic diversity needed to provide practical treatment for large numbers of patients. That means we would need some other way of creating embryos. Cloning is one method. Another is to induce women to allow their eggs to be harvested for research. The impact on their own future fertility is not now known.
However the embryos are obtained, someone, somewhere must maintain a genetically diverse “bank” of embryos, waiting to be used for therapeutic purposes. This would be more expensive than maintaining a blood bank of umbilical cord blood.
But for some people, that expense is exactly the point. Significant economic interests are at stake in doing the research, maintaining the embryo bank, and patenting the embryonic material. Since umbilical cord blood is cheaper to harvest and maintain, patients could obtain treatments at lower cost using stem cells from umbilical cord blood than from human embryos.
And don’t forget, the political argument over stem cell research is an argument over government subsidy. The proponents of embryonic stem cell research insist they need taxpayer funding to bring these “miracle cures” to the market. A more cynical view is that a group of scientists and their business allies want government subsidies to defeat the competition from more effective, less expensive, umbilical cord blood.
By contrast, several privately funded umbilical cord blood banks are already up and running: the National Cord Blood Program and Cord Blood Registry. The Catholic hospitals of New Jersey have announced that they are willing to lead the effort to coordinate the donation, registration, and distribution process, with or without taxpayer funding.
That is why the use of umbilical cord blood is doubly more humane than the use of human embryos for obtaining stem cells. No embryos have to be created or destroyed in order to obtain the stem cells. And, since umbilical cord blood is more plentiful at lower cost, the ultimate cost to the patients will be lower.
This is the ultimate irony of the conflict over stem cells. Umbilical cord blood produces cells that are more practical than those obtained from embryo destruction. If we would allow the embryos to be born, we would have a ready supply of something more therapeutic and less costly. And, we get a free prize: a cute baby, as a by-product. A win-win situation all around.

MATC & Responcibility

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel July 7th editorial, "A time to stay put", calls for an efficient, mullti-county MATC, more responsible to the taxpayers.

I am unsure if a large MATC can be efficient as it supports a top-heavy and over paid administration.

However, responsibility to those who pay the bills (The tax payers) could better be had by direct election of that school's Board Member by the People as we elect general school boards members throughout this State and, thus, eliminate the control of that school by political elitists and time servers..

The same general system of governance by the People should also apply to the UW non-system.

London & Glasgow (& Madrid)

Mr. David Warren writes several columns each week for the Ottawa Citizen, most of which are worthy of being reprinted in any newspaper as they address issues of importance to all civilized people. More specially, they provide a model of what such writing should be without regard to Mr. Warren's point-of-view or the subject-at-hand. (They also instruct me as to just how inferior I am as commentator.)

For those who study History, in an attempt to avoid being condemned to repeat its errors, the column below has a very important lesson which is that compromise with Evil persons (Going under such names as Adolf or Benito or Tojo or Abdul or Mohammed) leads such horrid creatures to more and more aggressive crimes against humanity.

Therefore, it seems more-than-strange that the British have forgotten the price paid for Prime Minister Chamberlain's compromises with Hitler---As paid in "blood, toil, tears and sweat" AND millions of lives and suffering throughout the world. It is very apparent that they have forgotten that lesson and the lessons taught by 1400-years of Islamic aggression, murder, rape and genocide.

The Spanish had a centuries long and much more bitter conflict with Islam. They have apparently forgotten that their only effective way of dealing with that ideology was to expel all Muslims from Iberia in that year-of-sanity, 1492AD. It may be that all of the courage and moral strength was destroyed in Spain during its 1930s Civil War (On both sides) leaving the control of that nation to morally weak, compromising, selfish and inadequate excuses for leaders and, for that matter, voters.

There are too many "leaders" (Ministers-of-Religion, officials, teachers, publishers-and-editors, etc.) in too many nations (Including my USA) who have not learned from the lessons of Spain and the UK as noted above.

London & Glasgow
One really has to wonder about the efficiency of the British National Health Service, after seeing how incompetently a group of Islamist doctors carried off their weekend car-bombing and fire-throwing attacks in London and Glasgow. Not one death; not even a successful suicide.

We can thank the indiscretion of the British police for the information that the persons since rounded up were mostly doctors and laboratory technicians working for the NHS. “Of Asian origin.” Am I jumping to conclusions, by guessing that they were all fanatical Muslims? (That not one of them was a fanatical Methodist?)

On the other hand, they seem to have been paid well -- doctors often are. Two almost identical, incompetently rigged Mercedes were found outside London night clubs. From what I can make of media reports, “controlled explosions” had also to be carried out on a car about to be dispatched from a Glasgow mosque, and on three fire hydrants placed suspiciously (if also ludicrously) on the pavement outside a London tube station. The general configuration appears to be (once again) according to current Islamist practice in Iraq: the two-part explosion. Not simultaneous, in any given location, but successive. The first bomb kills as many people as possible, attracting onlookers and a rescue operation. The second kills as many of them as possible.

Some parallel operation in Australia may also have been intended, judging from the urgency of police searches there. A man arrested at Brisbane airport, trying to flee to India, was a hospital registrar, recently arrived from England.

The attack on the Glasgow airport leaves us still scratching our heads. An SUV was driven into a passenger terminal. Failing to get inside, its two riders then emerged, in flames, shouting “Allah! Allah!” -- trying to hurl Molotov cocktails, before being wrestled to the ground by police. It sounded like the dress rehearsal for a Monty Python skit.

And yet it was a brilliant success. For within minutes -- just because this scene happened at an airport -- new regulations were being posted around the world to search all air travellers in new, more expensive, more time-consuming, and more demeaning ways.

In general, all these terror attempts were a brilliant success. The BBC and the rest of the British mainstream media immediately piped out sympathetic pieces about the poor beleaguered Muslim community, and aired demands for withdrawal from Iraq. In other words, exactly the publicity the Islamists wanted. And the new British prime minister, though he sounded firm and resolute, is understood to be looking for ways to get out of Tony Blair’s unpopular war.

We can safely assume that the timing of the British terror attempts was intended to coincide with the change in government leadership, in exactly the same way as the terror hits on the Madrid railway system were timed for the Spanish general election in 2004. The tactic works. The terrorists successfully swung that election, to the party that would cut-and-run from Iraq. And had several hundred Britons been killed, as the NHS doctors intended, demands for British withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan, in both the media and Parliament, would have been overwhelming.

The problem with defeatism is that it leads to defeat -- not to peace. Ask the Spaniards whose tour bus convoy was driven into by an exploding car in Yemen over the same weekend. At least, ask those who survived. They may well have thought they could safely visit that country’s archaeological sites, since Al Qaeda must appreciate the lengths to which Spain has gone to make herself inoffensive. But no: Al Qaeda considers not the behaviour of Spain, but the existence of Spain, to be offensive. Their propaganda is unambiguous: the terror will stop when “Al Andalus” returns to Shariah.

It is ridiculous, to imagine that the West will somehow surrender to the Islamists, from fear of (often slapstick) terror attacks. Or even, from fear of the luckier terror strikes, that have happened, and are sure to happen again -- for even a portable nuclear device, or packed biological weapon, is unlikely to kill more than a small proportion of a big city’s population. Life could go on.

And yet, when one looks at the response to an attack in which there were no fatalities, the idea ceases to be ridiculous. For the prevailing view among our self-sainted elites, in media and government, is that we must always reward a terror strike with new concessions, and always retreat where the enemy confronts us. And among the deracinated urban masses who vote the latter into power, the demand is for safety, even at the price of slavery. This is perfectly expressed in the public outpouring of obeisance to Islam, after each Islamist hit.

Such spineless whimpering is, in turn, a powerful inspiration to the more ardent Islamists, to try further terror strikes. We might as well unroll a huge banner, that reads, “Please! Hit us again!”

Ongoing Bias By Associated Press

On July 6th The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published the AP story "Israel slams Gaza militants".

Since those horrid people are terrorists, calling them "militants" represents an effort to bias this story. I also note that the byline was a reporter with an apparantly Arab name. Both of these facts, repeated in earlier offerings by the AP leads me to wonder if you should look for a less biased source for news from the Middle East.

New Career For Al Gore

Sometimes US Senator Al Gore appears to be a man of many talents. First, he invented the Internet, then he as mastered climatology, physics and other sciences to become an expert on climate change.

Now, perhaps he can inform us on the proper way to raise children to have and show respect for our democratically passed laws as to drunk driving at high rates-of-speed and unlawful possession of drugs.

No General War On Islam? Why Not?

Since "9/11" many commentators have apparently agreed that there was no need to react to the many (Thousands, Millions?) of Muslims who wish to kill us and to destroy Western Civilization by declaring and executing a general war on Islam.

Why not?

After all all of Islam is in a perpetual state of self-declared war against all non-Muslims. This is an article of their Faith as Mohammed declared it to be a command from Allah and such are, for Muslims, no longer subject to those convenient changes which occurred during Mohammed's life.

Certainly, the 1400-year history of Islam provides ongoing (To this very day in such places as the Sudan, The Philippines, Thailand) of that war and the pre-war position of Muslims in the UK, Nigeria, Egypt, Pakistan, Chechnya and too many other places to list here.

No, we are at war with Islam and no wishful thinking can make it otherwise. We will remain in that state-of-war as long as there are any sizable number of Muslims who believe they must obey the "sword verses" and other horrid teachings of Mohammed.

Among other things, we should consider all Muslims in the USA who do not publicly fore swear those teachings as either enemy aliens (Subject to expulsion from the USA or detention without appeal) or, if citizens, traitors (Subject to the death penalty for treason).


Declaration Of Independence--New One Needed?

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel should be thanked for reprinting our nation's Declaration Of Independence as its chief editorial page offering for July 4, 2007.

The People should read and re-read it (And our Constitution) on a regular basis---Especially when considering the excess use of Federal and State power as abuses parallel to those noted in that declaration.

In fact, we might wish to gather a "fair and balanced" work team (From both wings of our nation's present political thought) and present their rewrite of a "New Declaration Of Independence" addressing those excesses---With copies sent directly to our elected officials.

As expected, the comments of the editorial board on the same page contained an error-in-part. It was not documents which made our independence possible; But, it was the blood and lives expended and the pain suffered by those who paid the real and ongoing price of freedom from royal abuses, slave interests, Nazis and their like, Atheist Communist aggression and the 1400-year battle with those jihadi forces which would turn the entire world into a copy of medieval Arabia.

We should also recall that our Revolutionary War was begun by Citizens holding, as individuals and local associations, firearms and ammunition AND by the resistance to a government attempt to disarm them. Our elected officials should keep the same fact in mind.

Muslim Doctors & Terrorisim--In USA

Most Americans respect physicians and are, therefore, shocked when some become involved in acts of terrorism as in England in recent days. However, patients (Especially Jews) should take special care in this nation as to using Muslim doctors as there is a real risk that some might use more subtle methods than car bombs to kill "unbelievers".

I suggest that all licensing agencies perform a "terrorist association" national security check (Without regard to race, place of national origin, religion) on all applicants for medical licenses and make such a part of a permanent record and an allowable factor in issuing or denying licenses to practice medicine.

When Your Doctor is a Muslim: Medical Terrorism Comes to America
By Debbie Schlussel
May 17, 2007
Sometimes--so many times--diversity is not what it's cracked up to be.
Just ask Joseph Applebaum. Well, you could ask him. But you won't get an answer. He's dead. And he's dead because he was a Jew, and his doctor is a Muslim and grad of "Ayman Al-Zawahiri" Medical School.
But Applebaum wasn't denied treatment for being a Jew in Egypt. Or elsewhere in the Muslim world. It happened right here on U.S. soil. In Chicago.
As Muslim doctors continue to flood into the country under lax immigration laws, hospitals around the country have acquired their fair share of them. Many hospitals in the Detroit area are now dominated by Muslim doctors and have been for some time.
But even in hospitals where they do not predominate, Muslim doctors are starting to demonstrate behavior toward non-Muslim patients that is beyond alarming.
On December 1, 2003, Joe Applebaum was admitted to Rush North Shore Medical Center, a major hospital in Chicago. He was stricken with an acute (or distended) abdomen--a swelling of the stomach that is easily diagnosed and treated. But it was never treated by anyone at the hospital. For 12 hours, Joe Applebaum was left alone--left to die, which he did the next day.
A Jewish man, he was identified as a Jew on the front page of his medical chart. The chief resident doctor assigned to treat Mr. Applebaum, Osama Ahmed Ibrahim, MD, sure noticed the religious notation on Applebaum's chart. And it appears that this is why he never once checked or examined this emergency patient, Mr. Applebaum, and left him to die. When another doctor at the hospital finally examined Mr. Applebaum--not his assigned doctor, Dr. Ibrahim, he told Applebaum's son, Michael, to say good-bye to his father because he was about to die.
Dr. Ibrahim, is a Muslim from Birmingham, England--a hotbed of Islamic radicalism and terror planning. It is breeding ground for anti-Semitic hate. He is a graduate of Ain Shams University Medical School in Egypt. This extremist school is also the alma mater of Al-Qaeda mastermind and number two, Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri. Zawahiri's father--a Muslim Brotherhood enthusiast--also taught at the University.
Other Ain Shams grads and faculty members include:
* late HAMAS leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin; * Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Mahdi Akef;
* LAX terrorist shooter Hesham Mohamed Hedayet;
* Extremist Canadian Imam, Aly Hindy; and
* Co-leader of Yemen's extremist Al-Islah Party, Abdul Majeed Al-Zindani.
Why did Dr. Ibrahim neglect a patient who came in with an easily treatable condition and leave him to die, 12 hours later? It appears it can only be because he did not want to treat a Jewish patient and let him live. There can be no other reason.
Mr. Applebaum's son, Michael, is a medical doctor and an attorney. While he was waiting for Dr. Ibrahim to see his father, he called Dr. Ibrahim and alerted him to the growingly severe condition his father was in and that his father was suffering from an acute abdomen. Dr. Ibrahim claimed he examined Mr. Applebaum. But that was a lie. He'd never seen him.
And he essentially murdered him by denying treatment. It's a case of extreme negligence and medical malpractice for the apparent purpose of anti-Semitic murder.
Joseph Applebaum's son Michael is now suing Dr. Ibrahim, the hospital--Rush North Shore Medical Center, and others involved in his father's murder. The case is filed in Illinois, and he is looking for a good attorney to pursue the case he has filed. If you are interested or can help, please contact him at the website he set up to document this ongoing tragedy.
This isn't the only case where a Muslim doctor deliberately let his Jewish patient die, it is just the first that we know of. And it likely won't be the last.
Muslim doctors--especially those from foreign medical schools deep in the world of anti-Semitic, anti-American hate; but many from here, too--have backgrounds that are incompatible with the basic level of care that is required and expected in America. Sadly, no-one is vetting them out of our healthcare system. And no-one will.
But we know that there are many doctors who've been at the forefront of taking lives--not saving them--in the name of the "Religion of Peace":
* Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri--Al-Qaeda mastermind and number two man, reportedly a surgeon and/or psychiatrist; * Dr. Mohammad Rabi Al-Zawahiri--Ayman's father and a Muslim Brotherhood enthusiast, pharmacologist and professor at Ain Shams Medical School;
* Dr. "Abu Hafiza"--Al-Qaeda master planner who was the brains and commander of the Moroccan cell that provided logistics for the 9/11 attacks, and he recruited Qaeda insurgents for battles in Fallujah, Moroccan psychiatrist;
* Dr. Abdel Aziz Al-Rantisi--Late HAMAS leader, pediatrician;
* Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahar--HAMAS co-founder and leader, surgeon and lecturer at the Islamic University in Gaza;
* Dr. Fathi Abd Al-Aziz Shiqaqi--Late founder of Islamic Jihad and active in Fatah, physician.
And there are other issues, such as infectious disease. We are no seeing cases in Britain in which some Muslim doctors refuse to wash their hands with alcohol-based disinfectant, per the Muslim prohibition on alcohol consumption.
In New Jersey, Dr. Ahmed Rashed, a Muslim Arab resident, severed and stole the hand of a cadaver as a gift for a stripper. Such little respect for life from a religion now very much participating in a profession that takes an oath to do no harm and to preserve patient's lives. Not only did he get a slap on the hand--no jail time and, likely, no criminal record--but he currently has a job practicing medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in New York. The real Maimonides--a legendary, brilliant Jewish doctor, rabbi, and religious scholar--is turning over in his grave.
Perhaps, Dr. Applebaum's suit against Rush North Shore Medical Center will make hospitals think twice before they hire Muslim doctors inclined to practice Medical terrorism against their patients. Today, the victim is a Jew, solely because he is Jewish. But tomorrow, it will be a Christian, solely because he/she is a Christian. Or some other non-Muslim victim, solely because he/she is a non-Muslim victim.
Can we afford to have doctors in America whose allegiance to their patients is far less than their allegiance to an extreme observance of a religion of hate? If they cannot and will not tender care, they should not be licensed to practice medicine in the United States.
Like I said, Maimonides is turning over in his grave. Joseph Applebaum, *Zichrono LiVrachah--Blessed Be His Memory.

Wisconsin's Health Care Proposal

I suggest that Wisconsin's citizens should know if the health care plan, apparently passed in the State Senate as part of the proposed Budget, address coverage for non-citizens.

As for myself, any such plan must exclude all illegal aliens and those here only on student visas to have even the slightest chance of passage and, more importantly, the approval of the voting pubic.

It might also be useful for all of us to know what the cost (Including administrative overhead) would be to businesses in Wisconsin---Including the cost-to-convert to any such, new, plan.
