    Buffalo beheader convicted in one hour 

    Via Mark Steyn:

    Muzzammil “Mo” Hassan chopped off his wife’s head, and then claimed it was because she’d been spousally abusing him. This was not in Yemen or Waziristan but in Buffalo. Despite the chutzpah (if he’ll forgive the expression) of his defense, yesterday the jury took less than an hour to find him guilty of murder.

    The Hassan case was fascinating not just because his entire public identity was a fraud but because the media so enthusiastically promoted that fraud. Two years ago, in Headless Body In Gutless Press, I wrote:

      This is FABULOUS NEWS ! Well done jury, and extra points for ruling so quickly !

      I hope CAIR takes this as a Cold Wet Soapy Greasy Dishrag-of-Reality-Slap to the face !! Our Constitution leaves no room for sharia law ! Islam`s barbaric teachings are anathema to the American experiment !

      I’ve been following this case too, and I posted a video of some of the prosecution summation here. “Mo” Hussan first tried the “she humiliated me” defense, then he tried “the rest of you are all Islamophobes” defense, until he finally settled on the “300-pound abused husband with 2 hunting knives forced to defend himself from a skinny wife armed with a bag of clean socks (his) and a store receipt.” I’m sorry I missed the Mark Steyn analysis.

      Good! Very good justice system really do exist in our country. The jury should also be praised for a job well done.

    Jihadists Are Not America’s Enemy—The Bastards Are Merely Victims 

    John Brennan, Fearless Reader’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Counterterrorism and Homeland Security, believes that violent extremists are victims of “political, economic and social forces.”

    He also feels that describing America’s enemies as “jihadists” is wrong.  Brennan argued that it would be “counterproductive” for the United States to use the term, as it would “play into the false perception” that the “murderers” leading war against the West are doing so in the name of a “holy cause”—jihad.

    Mr. Brennan is an unmitigated fool.  Proof that he is a fool can be found in the words of Ayatollah Khomeini:

    “Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Quran] psalms and Hadiths urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

    This president is surrounded by idiots, none of which is useful.

      Um, they call themselves jihadists, wouldn’t it be rather silly to pretend otherwise? Oh, wait . . .

      Once the Obama Admin. decided to treat terrorists as domestic criminals, wasn’t this inevitable? I mean, the Left’s view has long been that criminals are just victims themselves, right? The Left just loves victims.

      Kinda hard to believe that religion isn’t a factor when they’re quoting the Koran in their videotapes during exploding trucks etc.. Hmm…

    David Horowitz asks a single question, eliciting a very revealing response from a Muslim student 

    H/T: The Right Scoop

    David Horowitz, Editor-in-Chief of News Real Blog, spoke Monday night at UCSD to offer balance of opinion as the Muslim Student Association(MSA) sponsored Israeli Apartheid Week: A Call to Boycott, Divest, and Sanction Israel – May 10th – May 13th, 2010 on campus. Horowitz received a question from a student Jimena Imad Musa Ahmal Bahiri, who seems intent on showing Horowitz as spreading false information about connections between MSA’s and Jihad terrorist networks.  The entire exchange, seen in the video here , is fascinating.  It is Horowitz final question to the student, however, that uncovers a profound hatred in the young woman:

    Horowitz: If you don’t condemn Hamas, obviously you support it.  Case closed.  I have had this experience at UC Santa Barbara, where there were 50 members of the Muslim Students Association sitting right in the rows there.  And throughout my hour talk I kept asking them, will you condemn Hizbollah and Hamas. And none of them would.  And then when the question period came, the president of the Muslim Students Association was the first person to ask a question. And I said, ‘Before you start, will you condemn Hizbollah?’ And he said, ‘Well, that question is too complicated for a yes or no answer.’ So I said, ‘Okay, I’ll put it to you this way.  I am a Jew.  The head of Hizbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn’t have to hunt us down globally.  For or Against it?

    MSA member: For it.

    As you will see in the video, the young woman appears to have spent much if not all of her life in America.  She has little if any discernible accent when she speaks.  She has been taught to feel this anger and hatred.  It seems highly unlikely to me she would be interested in truly hearing Mr. Horowitz’s opinions.  Rather she uses the opportunity to reinforce her own beliefs.    Credit her with honesty for her willingness to state on the record she would support such a “goal.”  If she were a wiser person she might find a future filled with violence against the Jews solves nothing.  It will, however, assure more war and despair for future generations in the Middle East.  How very sad.

      Wouldn’t you like to be able to trace how this young woman got where she is today?

      • backyardconservative 11:29 AM on 05/12/2010 Permalink | Reply

        The closest thing I’ve seen to that is when I visited a Young Pioneer’s camp in the old USSR–our group played volleyball with the youths. Then we had to endure a speech–the unquestioning, hectoring, creepy zeal of the woman, assuredly a member of the communist party, has stuck in my mind for nearly 40 years.

          I was asking myself the same question Jill asked, how did she get to this point. That must have been quite a speech to stay with you all these years. I am sure this woman has had hatred reinforced through such speeches and continues to have it reinforced through the MSA right on her campus. Many support a two state solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict but this woman undermines her cause with her answer. Would a Palestinian state be enough to assuage such anger?

      I saw that video, last night, and instantly put it on Facebook for my high school and college aged ‘friends’ to see. Most schools have folks like that, and our kids are taught to be tolerant and accepting of the even most evil and noxious ideologies for the sake of multiculturalism . I’m not saying that all Muslims are like that, but our kids should be aware of them, and not align themselves with them in any way, shape or form…

      Thank God for the blogosphere, for free speech, and for courageous people like David Horowitz who exercise it. Without them, we would not be able to witness this young woman’s cold-blooded admission. Jihad Watch is carrying a story about Catholic schoolchildren in the UK being required by their school and diocese to dress as Muslims for a required school trip to a Liverpool mosque, the very one that spawned the Glasgow airport bombing and the failed London bombings, which relied on car bombs similar in construction to the one planted in Times Square. Of course, the required mosque field trip was all about “promoting tolerance.” What do you think the chances are of Muslim schoolchildren being required to dress in Catholic school uniforms to visit a cathedral for a lesson about Catholicism taught by a bishop?

      Tolerance is a “nice”-sounding word, and judgment is not, but judgment ought to be consulted before we decide what we are going to tolerate and what we are not going to tolerate.

    Saturday miscellany 

    First things first. Check out Peter Robinson’s Uncommon Knowledge conversation with Mark  Steyn. The videos are served up in manageable portions of about 5-10 minutes a piece. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5.

    Steyn’s  Saturday column: Welcome to Fascizona

    You couldn’t get sanctions like these imposed at the U.N. Security Council, but then, unlike Arizona, Iran is not a universally reviled pariah.

    Ain’t it the truth. Here’s  John Bolton on our refusal to take a stand on human rights at the UN:  “We shouldn’t be afraid to be isolated; we should be proud of it.”

    Horror story in Pakistan: Christian barber beaten, sodomized for cutting a Muslim’s beard

    “Shakeel Cheema said, ‘Now we are going to teach you a real lesson for shaving the beard of a Muslim man,” Masih said, and after a long, pained pause he related how Cheema and the seven others sodomized him. “I started bleeding and fell unconscious.”

    Oremus.

    Jeanette Pryor presents the logical feminist position on abortion. Excellent piece, but . . . good luck with that. My post here.

    Video: Obama sings the praises of government: “We’ve also clearly  seen the dangers of too little government.” Aargh.

    That calls for a palate cleanser. For you old fogies, try this. Whippersnappers, go here.
