Semper Fly: Marines in Space
A proposed suborbital space transport will put boots on the ground anywhere in the world in two hours or less. But can it overcome huge technological—and political—hurdles?
As any battlefield commander will tell you, getting troops to the fight can be as difficult as winning it. And for modern-day soldiers, the sites of conflict are so far-flung, and the political considerations of even flying over another country so complicated, that rapid entry has become nearly impossible.
If a group of Marine Corps visionaries have their way, however, 30 years from now, Marines could touch down anywhere on the globe in less than two hours, without needing to negotiate passage through foreign airspace. The breathtaking efficiency of such a delivery system could change forever the way the U.S. does battle.

Money sent to the Indonesian province of Aceh to help tsunami survivors is now being used to enforce shari’a law. (Hat tip: LGF readers.)
WHEN people around the world sent millions of pounds to help the stricken Indonesian province of Aceh after the Boxing Day tsunami of 2004, few could have imagined that their money would end up subsidising the lashing of women in public.
But militant Islamists have since imposed sharia law in Aceh and have cornered Indonesian government funds to organise a moral vigilante force that harasses women and stages frequent displays of humiliation and state-sanctioned violence.
International aid workers and Indonesian women’s organisations are now expressing dismay that the flow of foreign cash for reconstruction has allowed the government to spend scarce money on a new bureaucracy and religious police to enforce puritan laws, such as the compulsory wearing of headscarves.
Some say there are more “sharia police” than regular police on the local government payroll and that many of them are aggressive young men.
“Who are these sharia police?” demanded Nurjannah Ismail, a lecturer at Aceh’s Ar-Raniri University. “They are men who, most of the time, are trying to send the message that their position is higher than women.”
Islamic Warfare Today
WORLDWIDE JIHAD AGAINST NATIVE POPULATIONS
Fjordman wrote of this at the Gates of Vienna back in July.
This trend is not exclusive to Scandinavia. It is the same all over Western Europe wherever we find significant numbers of Muslim immigrants. In fact, the number of rapes committed by Muslim immigrants in Western nations is so extremely high that it is difficult to view them only as random acts of individuals.
It resembles warfare.
German journalist Gudrun Eussner considers this to be “sexuality as a weapon against disobedient and non-Muslim women, both categorized as “unbelievers”. Against them jihad is the duty, and what to do with women “conquered” in jihad, this may be read in the Qur’an: they become slaves to be used by the victors.”

By the way, Fjordman did a lot of the early heavy lifting which made this sickening trend go viral on the Internet.
Muslim Rape Epidemic in Sweden and Norway - Authorities Look the Other Way
He also posted the now-famous picture before anyone else.
A Norwegian police study reveals that 65% of the rapes in Oslo are committed by “non-western” types (aka “youths”), even though they comprise only 14.3% of the general population: Oslo rape statistics shock
Waging War on Native Swedes
The wave of robberies the city of Malmö has witnessed during this past year is part of a “war against the Swedes.” This is the explanation given by young robbers from immigrant backgrounds when questioned about why they only rob native Swedes, in interviews with Petra Akesson for her thesis in sociology.“I read a report about young robbers in Stockholm and Malmö and wanted to know why they rob other youths.
It usually does not involve a lot of money,” she says. She interviewed boys between 15 and 17 years old, both individually and in groups.Almost 90% of all robberies reported to the police were committed by gangs, not individuals.“When we are in the city and robbing we are waging a war, waging a war against the Swedes.”
This argument was repeated several times.“Power for me means that the Swedes shall look at me, lie down on the ground and kiss my feet.” The boys explain, laughingly, that “there is a thrilling sensation in your body when you’re robbing, you feel satisfied and happy, it feels as if you’ve succeeded, it simply feels good.” “It’s so easy to rob Swedes, so easy.” “We rob every single day, as often as we want to, whenever we want to.”
The immigrant youth regard the Swedes as stupid and cowardly: “The Swedes don’t do anything, they just give us the stuff. They’re so wimpy.” The young robbers do not plan their crimes: “No, we just see some Swedes that look rich or have nice mobile phones and then we rob them.”
Web Comment from lgf-"
It is interesting to note that these Muslim immigrants state quite openly that they are involved in a “war,” and see participation in crime and harassment of the native population as such. This is completely in line with what I have posited before. The number of rape charges in Sweden has quadrupled in just above twenty years.
Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six times as common today as they were a generation ago. Most other kinds of violent crime have rapidly increased, too. Instability is spreading to most urban and suburban areas. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm found that 85 per cent of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or from foreign parents.
The phenomenon is not restricted to Sweden. The number of rapes committed by Muslim immigrants in Western nations is so extremely high that it is difficult to view these rapes as merely random acts of individuals. It resembles warfare.
This is happening in most Western European countries, as well as in other non muslim countries such as India. European jails are filling up with Muslims imprisoned for robberies and all kinds of violent crimes, and Muslims bomb European civilians.
One can see the mainstream media are struggling to make sense of all of this. That is because they cannot, or do not want to, see the obvious: this is exactly how an invading army would behave: rape, pillage and bombing. If many of the Muslim immigrants see themselves as conquerors in a war, it all makes perfect sense."
Dar al-Islam- France
November 14, 2006
They go by the euphemistic term Zones Urbaines Sensibles, or Sensitive Urban Zones, with the even more antiseptic acronym ZUS, and there are 751 of them as of last count. They are convienently listed on one long webpage, complete with street demarcations and map delineations.
What are they? Those places in France that the French state does not control. They range from two zones in the medieval town of Carcassone to twelve in the heavily Muslim town of Marseilles, with hardly a town in France lacking in its ZUS. The ZUS came into existence in late 1996 and according to a 2004 estimate, nearly 5 million people live in them.
A more precise name for these zones would be Dar al-Islam, the place where Muslims rule.
Nov. 28, 2006 update: For an insight into how bad things are, the police in Lyons demonstrated on Nov. 9, denouncing "violence against the forces of order." Things have reached a pretty sad state when the police have to demonstrate in the streets against the criminals.

They’re pulling out all 200 troops: France to pull troops from Afghanistan.
PARIS - France is to withdraw its 200-strong special forces from Afghanistan, all of its ground troops engaged in the U.S anti-terror operation there, authorities announced Sunday.
The decision to pull the elite troops, based in the southeastern city of Jalalabad, comes as the Taliban militia are gaining strength despite the strong engagement — some 32,800 troops — in NATO’s International Security Assistance Force. France has balked at sending its 1,100-strong NATO contingent outside the relatively safe Afghan capital, Kabul.

Intel helps develop electronic Quran, says report
Maher Hawash used to work for Intel. But do you think anyone there got the hint, and vetted this curriculum for jihadist teachings? I'd be willing to bet the farm that such a thought never even crossed the mind of anyone at Intel.
By Peter Clarke for EE Times,
LONDON — Intel Corp. has linked up with two Saudi Arabian software companies to develop an electronic version of Islam's holy book, the Quran, and a training computer to help teach a Saudi government-approved curriculum, according to an Associated Press report.
Craig Barrett, chairman of Intel (Santa Clara, Calif.), attended a product launch in Saudi Arabia over the weekend. An Intel development center in Cairo, Egypt, designed the hardware for both Saudi projects, the report said.
Intel worked with Dar Al Rasm Al-Othmani, a software company focused on religious content, to develop the E-Quran, a small computer that contains the text and audio recitations of the Quran, the report said. Intel worked with Semanoor, an educational software company, to develop the E-Curriculum, a portable computer that contains a Saudi government-approved curriculum for children up to 12th grade (about 18 years of age), the report said.
The E-Curriculum is being implemented in Saudi schools, the report said referencing Semanoor as its source.

Mr John Bolton & the UN
"They chose to obstruct his confirmation, even though he enjoys majority support in the Senate, and even though their tactics will disrupt our diplomatic work at a sensitive and important time," Bush said. "This stubborn obstructionism ill serves our country, and discourages men and women of talent from serving their nation."
"This is about survival. The UN has an obvious indifference to the safety of the United States."
By Randy Taylor Independent Analystrtaylor@homelandsecurityus.com
15 October 2006:
In the last few days, we received a blunt warning from North Korea on how the UN Sanctions would be a declaration of war and some additional comments that said missiles could be aimed at the United States.We said nothing.
We instead went to the UN, the most useless organization on the planet.Iran is steadily building a nuclear arsenal, working 24-7 to develop long range missiles capable of hitting the United States. It’s a safe bet that they already have nuclear weapons that will reach Israel and parts of Europe. They have made clear their intention to remove the Jewish State from the face of this planet.
They are coming for us. We said nothing. Instead we went to the UN, the most useless organization on the planet.Years ago, we wanted to invade Iraq and we went to the UN, yes the most useless organization on the planet. We met stiff resistance. We found out very quickly who are allies were. We gathered in our few faithful allies and basically went it alone with the help of those faithful few.
We also exposed multiple scandals based around the “Oil for Food” program with Iraq all the way to the top of the UN leadership. In the last few days, we thought that maybe the UN would step up to the plate and of course China pulls a boner and severely lessens any potential impact UN sanctions would have on one third of the Axis of Evil.
Of course, China is actually an enemy and a member of the UN.The entire Iran issue being routed through the UN is a joke, an exercise in futility. The Supreme Leader, Supreme Council and their idiot president Ahmadinejad must be laughing themselves silly at the prospect of the UN doing anything in the way of placing restrictions on Iran. This is about survival.
The UN has an obvious indifference to the safety of the United States. They admitted Syria into the council which was placing a certain vote with anyone that is an enemy of the United States. They invited and listened to Arafat, the father of modern Islamic terrorism. North Korea and Iran are there too. All are sworn enemies of the United States.
This doesn’t even cover the lists of smaller countries that are allies of our enemies.So what exactly do we ever expect to get accomplished through the UN? What have we ever accomplished with the UN? The irony of the UN is that they are dead set against the United States almost every time we go to the UN with a request or a need, following this ridiculous protocol. But every time the UN has a need for relief, for troops or military in a region, they come crying to the US for help. Future UN Strategy?
We certainly need to develop one. One, we need to reestablish our respect in this world. Some time ago when we told North Korea not to do their missile tests, they did them anyway. So when they piped up and did the nuclear test, our threats went unheeded because they know they were hollow words, empty words from what used to be the greatest superpower on the planet. Why are they unheeded?
They were unheeded for the same reason that Iran laughs at us and taunts us with their nuclear enrichment and weapons development. They know we are UN junkies and won’t be able to do anything through the UN.One has to conclude from history that the UN is a clueless, corrupt organization where most of the members actually resent the United States no matter how they appear.
We need to realize this and pull back from the UN and perhaps reestablish a strong, healthy NATO alliance where the people in the organization agree for the most part. It worked well against the Russians for decades and was one the factors of our stability and respect in the world through those times.
Maybe we should establish a new organization devoid of communist and terrorist countries altogether. In reality, the UN would crumble if we pulled out and told them to get off our property. Either way, the UN should be disbanded and their UN building turned into a bank or hotel or casino. At least then the building would serve a legitimate purpose. Ground Invasions don’t work anymoreWe need to issue stiff, serious warnings to North Korea, Iran and Syria and make them real warnings that will be backed up by military action.
We should make it clear that verbal threats against the United States or any of our allies will not be taken as rhetoric and will not be accepted in any fashion. When they step out of line, stomp them into the ground. Not the type of invasion like we did in Iraq, I’m talking about bombing them back to the stone age. Hit them so hard and fast that there isn’t even time to allow the media in there.
No friendly targets. Destroy everything. Pound their nuclear installations until they either explode or are so destroyed they cannot be rebuilt. Don’t send in troops, use the technology we have developed to where we minimize the losses of our soldiers. Quit viewing the populations as friendly like we did in Iraq where our soldiers are getting murdered daily by the insurgents and terrorists that hide in the population and where the Iraqi children come out and kick their dead bodies and steal their uniforms and belongings.
I realize that was the cover story that we were doing it for the civilians, but it failed. You cannot establish a freedom based democracy where Islam is the primary rule in the government. The concept of that is foolish. They directly conflict with each other. Iraq is an Islamic country overrun with insurgents and terrorists and the populations live in extreme fear or willingly support the terrorists and insurgents. We have done nothing to curb this Islamic onslaught.
We see no clear date or even decade when we can pull out and we might as well plan on being there for a while.
Daily I watch film of the Iraqi Police and Iraqi National Guard getting slaughtered and when you watch these, there is nothing there that would make someone feel safe and secure. They cannot defend themselves from the insurgents and terrorist so how are they going to protect the population?
This politically correct way we conduct war anymore is crap. When these people decide to pound us with nuclear weapons here in the US they won’t go out of their way to avoid civilians. Their primary target will be the civilian population. When they start running into shopping malls and theaters strapped with explosives, it’s the civilians that will die. I wouldn’t go out of my way to target civilian populations but I certainly wouldn’t restrain or alter a target choice because of the presence of civilians. They have legs, they can leave the area.
I would rather see 100,000 civilians die in a foreign land than even one of our soldiers. That statement sounds hard and uncompassionate but those are my feelings on this. These civilians in these terrorist countries have had years to implement change and regime change and have failed to do so.
We cannot allow the US and the free world to be threatened and restrained because of fear of civilian casualties in these countries. Remember, it’s our civilians that are being threatened and will die from any attacks from these terrorist countries or terrorist groups. We need to get our priorities straight.
Be safe and stay vigilant.

The "International Survey" article published by Beijing-based Liaowang Weeklyat at the beginning of January 2006 offers great insight into current American-Russian relations:
China and Russia are also moving toward improved trade relations:
China and Russia still have some problems in the trade-economic cooperation area, but such problems are absent in political and military cooperation, where the two countries have, in practice, coinciding approaches.

Apathy- Enemy of the West
Message From America's Truth Forum
Dear Concerned Americans:
For some time, America’s Truth Forum has been recognized for being on the very cutting edge of the struggle to expose Radical Islam’s menacing threat to our homeland. In keeping with expectations, we’ve encountered numerous obstacles along the way.
Most challenging has been the mainstream media’s imposition of virtually impenetrable roadblocks – obstacles implemented to prevent us from reaching out to fellow citizens who share our concerns for national security and the safety of future generations.
Fortunately, we’ve discovered alternative means to circumvent those barriers.In the process, we also learned how to effectively deal with detractors and maneuver in an environment best described as “PC gone wild.”Bar none, the greatest challenge currently facing us, and placing our nation in harm’s way, is apathy.
According to Webster’s dictionary, “apathy” is best defined as a lack of concern or “indifference”.
Sustained periods of uncertainly, especially when a nation is at war, should give rise to greater concern amongst the populace. We are currently engaged in a struggle for our very existence yet, astoundingly, few seem to take note or even care. This is true in nearly every case except, of course, for our Islamist enemies who are poised to benefit from our indifference.
The struggle against Islamofascism is clearly being lost on the home front.
Please consider the following:
§ There are over 1.1 billion Muslims worldwide. According to conservative estimates, at least 10% or 110 million are radicalized and prone to violence. Of equal concern, these jihadis have rallied the support of another 40% or 400 million. In summary, that’s some 500 million people who are sworn and committed to our death and destruction.
§ Islamic religious leaders granted Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda the right to kill up to 10 million Americans. Most experts agree that plans are in the works for catastrophic attacks involving weapons of mass destruction. Yet, our political correct policies prohibit racial profiling and other effective measures that must be employed by law enforcement agencies to protect the homeland.
§ Over 90% of American Mosques are Saudi funded and tainted by Wahabbi doctrine. Hate-inspired anti-American messages and literature are shared with their hungry audiences on our own soil.§ American institutions of higher learning like Harvard, Georgetown and many others have received multi-million dollar gifts from Saudi Arabian dignitaries – funds being used to purchase influence and capture the minds of our youth.
§ On an annual basis, tens of thousands of prisoners are being converted to Islam in our penal institutions. Upon release, many of these same felons are recruited into a standing army awaiting marching orders.
§ Terrorist training facilities continue to operate freely within our borders.§ Muslim Students Associations (MSA’s), Islamic centers and Mosques across America and Canada sponsor paintball outings and promote survival skills. Paintball, in itself, may be a harmless sport but one must consider ulterior motives since the MSA’s also benefit from Saudi funding.
The National MSA’s online publication promotes firearms training with the following quote that they attribute to Mohammed, “Power is shooting, power is shooting, power is shooting”. They also recommend Muslim students that paintball as an excellent way to learn about combat. This certainly begs the question as to why college-based religious organizations would advocate sharpening combat skills.
§ Despite its dark history and terrorist ties, CAIR continues to exert tremendous influence in Washington. Their propaganda machine is supported by multi-million dollar donations from Saudi Arabia.
§ In the words of CAIR’s Chairman, Omar Ahmad, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to be dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth”.
§ CAIR continue to host regional conferences for thousands of Muslims nationwide. Keynote Speakers include the likes of Siraj Wahhaj. According to the U.S. Attorney’s office, Wahhaj is the un-indicted co-conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
§ Our enemies are forthright when voicing their intensions with regard to establishing a caliphate and delivering the entire world to Allah. We are the ones who refuse to accept the fact that they mean business and continue to live in a state of denial.
§ Over 6300 Muslim-inspired terrorist attacks have taken place worldwide since 9/11 – begging the question as to why our fearless leaders in Washington continue to refer to Islam as a religion of peace.The future of America is in peril and we can’t afford to rest in the hands of a scant few who chose to stand defiantly in the face of evil.
Silent are the voices of those patriots who stand proud while paying homage to our nation’s fallen servicemen on Memorial Day.Absent are the statesmen of a by-gone era when men served their nation with dignity and upheld their oaths to preserve the constitution.
We are currently engaged in fighting a war for our very survival against a clever, cunning and deceptive enemy – an enemy that is skilled in using the rights guaranteed by our own Constitution against us.
What future awaits upcoming generations - meaning your children? Who will be there to protect them from this evil, if we fail to confront it now in earnest?
The time has come for all concerned Americans to either rise up and take a stand or acquiesce and sink further into a state of apathy. A lack of action, at this point, will only seal the fate of our heirs. We owe it to our founding fathers who did better than condemn us to making a choice between death, conversion and enslavement.
The time has come for those of us who value life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to unite, in a common front, and be heard.To quote Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch:“In this era of violent intimidation, it is crucial for the continued life of our free society that we speak out, and do so fearlessly.”Show your concern for the future of our great nation. Don’t abandon those who are engaged in a daily struggle, both here and abroad, to preserve the American way of life.
America’s Truth Forum needs your financial support to continue to fight on your behalf. This struggle has nothing to do with partisan politics, instead it has everything to do with survival. Above all, please make the effort to attend the symposium this November 10th & 11th in Las Vegas, Nevada, and spread the word to other concerned Americans.
These events are designed to do nothing more than provide a forum for the dissemination of the truth – facts provided by internationally recognized counterterrorism experts that could prove potentially life saving for you and your family.
There will be no better opportunity to engage the experts in dialogue.Contributions and registration forms may be mailed to:

The war is going badly and it’s our fault. Our enemies saw the democrats’ election victory as an indication we don’t have the will to win. By mid-December, the Iraq study group co-headed by Jim Baker, who is no friend of Israel and who does business in the Arab world, will issue its report.
There are really only two options: victory or surrender. We have not committed the troops necessary to secure victory and the crazy religious nuts in Iraq are on the edge of a civil war, if they have not already crossed over the edge. Prime Minister al-Mailiki apparently does not have the strength, or the will, to disarm the militias and a reported 1,000 Iraqis per day are leaving Baghdad. That will allow even more fanatics to move in.
Iran and Syria are meeting and Iraq will send a representative. That can not be good news for anyone who backs democracy. Defeat will mean a major terrorist state with ramifications for the United States, Israel and the world. Radical Islam is a virus and it’s spreading. Enough about this so-called “peaceful religion.” They have us figured out better than we have figured them out. If we don’t win, we lose.

Somali Islamic court: No women on beach (UPDATED)
by The Anti-Jihad Pundit on Sat 21 Oct 2006 18:04 CEST
From Yahoo! News
MOGADISHU, Somalia - An Islamic court has banned women from swimming at the main beach in Somalia's capital, the latest step to impose strict religious rule that has sparked fears of an emerging, Taliban-style regime. Sheikh Farah Ali Hussein, chair of a northern Mogadishu Islamic court, said Friday that the ban applies only to the northern Mogadishu Leedo beach, where families usually go on weekends to play and relax. "We stopped women from swimming because it is against the teaching of Islam for women to mingle with men, especially while they are swimming," Hussein said. Since ... more »
Female mutilation is sick,sick,sick (Warning)
Excerpts from Hosken Report, Somalia Genital and Sexual Mutilation of Females, Fourth Revised Edition, 1993 (Women’s International Network News) (PDF 66 KB):
"The child, completely naked, is made to sit on a low stool. Several women take hold of her and open her legs wide. After separating her outer and inner lips, the operator, usually a woman experienced in this procedure, sits down facing the child.
With her kitchen knife the operator first pierces and slices open the hood of the clitoris. Then she begins to cut it out. While another woman wipes off the blood with a rag, the operator digs with her sharp fingernail a hole the length of the clitoris to detach and pull out the organ.
The little girl, held down by the women helpers, screams in extreme pain; but no one pays the slightest attention.The operator finishes this job by entirely pulling out the clitoris, cutting it to the bone with her knife. Her helpers again wipe off the spurting blood with a rag.
The operator then removes the remaining flesh, digging with her finger to remove any remnant of the clitoris among the flowing blood. The neighbor women are then invited to plunge their fingers into the bloody hole to verify that every piece of the clitoris is removed."
Militant Ideology Atlas
Posted December 3rd, 2006 by Doctor Bulldog
Categories: know your enemy
Wow! CTC at West Point has an incredible document about the Jihadi movement! The document goes by the unassuming title of, “The Militant Ideology Atlas.” I have provided links to the PDF documents at the end of the following press release:
CTC Releases Study of Jihadi Movement
The Combating Terrorism Center at West Point is pleased to announce the release of The Militant Ideology Atlas, an in-depth study of the Jihadi Movement’s top thinkers and their most popular writings. This is the first systematic mapping of the ideology inspiring al-Qaeda.
The CTC’s researchers spent one year mining the most popular books and articles in al-Qaeda’s online library, profiling hundreds of figures in the Jihadi Movement, and cataloging over 11,000 citations. The empirically supported findings of the project are surprising:
* The most influential Jihadi intellectuals are clerics from Jordan and Saudi Arabia, two of the US’s closest allies in the Middle East.
* Among them, the Jordanian cleric Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi has had the most impact on other Jihadi thinkers and has been the most consequential in shaping the worldview of the Jihadi Movement.
* In contrast, the study finds that Usama Bin Ladin and Ayman al-Zawahiri have had little influence on other Jihadi theorists and strategists.
The Executive Report summarizes the main conclusions of this comprehensive effort and provides policy-relevant recommendations informed by these findings. The Research Compendium contains summaries of all the texts used in the study as well as biographies of the texts’ authors and the figures they cite most.
A link to the entire database will be available soon.

Here Now WW3
The Rev. John Hagee gives warning at Thomas Road
“Right now America is at a crossroads,” said Hagee, who heads Christians United For Israel. “The Third World War has begun.”
Hagee said America’s current enemy has no fear of death and is motivated by a desire for world domination at any cost.
Hagee said the battle lines are not always clear.
“People say ‘When is the army coming.’ The army is not coming. It’s here,” he said. “They are waiting to respond as terrorist cells against this nation. It is a war between the culture of death and the culture of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is a war that we must win, period.”
Hagee, who has a television ministry that originates from Cornerstone Church, said there is no way to appease this adversary.
“Our crisis is that half of America doesn’t know the war has started,” Hagee said. “This is a religious war.”
He said it is a battle brought on by deep seeded cultural differences.
“They hate us because we are free,” Hagee said. “They hate us because it is their religious duty to hate us. They are trained from the breast of their mother to hate us. Radical Islam is a doctrine of death. It is their desire, it is their hope, it is their ambition, it is their highest honor to die in a war against infidels.
And you are ‘infidels’ and there is nothing you can do to accommodate them. That’s what makes them so dangerous.”
Hagee said the recent plot in England to blow up airliners shows how motivated radical Islamics are to kill those they consider “infidels.” Recent news reports said two of the 24 suspects were going to use their children’s baby bottles to hold explosive liquids.
“They were going to use the child’s baby bottle as a liquid bomb to destroy themselves, their children and everyone on the plane,” he said. “It was going to be mass murder on a scale of monumental proportions. It was an act of war. They are ruthless, single-minded and totally committed.”
Hagee said the United States, England, France and other free nations are all targets for Islamic extremists.
“They have not moved to France to become French,” he said. “They came to France to get France to submit to Islam.”
Hagee said the “serpent’s head” of radical Islam is Iran, which has been gleaning support from both Russia and China.
“Russia is all over the Middle East in an antagonistic position against the United States,” Hagee said. “Our president and our government needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Mr. (Vladamir) Putin is not for us, he’s against us.”
Hagee said Iran’s nuclear ambitions present a significant danger to the world.
Hagee said Iran was behind the recent war between Hezbollah and Israel.
“They gave Syria 14,000 missiles and $100 million,” he said. “Those missiles were given to Hezbollah.”
Hagee said Iran started the war to shift world focus away from its nuclear program.
Mac Halal Burger Anyone?
Brunswick East & St Albans Macca's,

Muslim Mac attack
From the Sunday Herald, :Melbourne, Australia
McDONALD'S latest bid to attract more customers -- Muslim fast-food lovers -- has caused uproar among customers. The fast-food chain has introduced halal products at two Melbourne restaurants, significantly boosting sales.
However some non-Muslim customers are furious they were not told their hamburger meat was slaughtered and blessed in accordance with Islamic rules laid down in the Koran.
McDonald's consulted Muslim leaders before introducing halal products at its Brunswick East and St Albans stores.
Halal meat is from animals that have been killed facing Mecca and blessed using the name of Allah.
Brunswick East store assistant manager Nicholas Yacoub said the move had attracted a surge of new customers.
"It has pretty much doubled our sales," Mr Yacoub said.
The store does not tell drive-through customers about the change and has only one small sign inside advertising the move.
Coburg resident Miriam McLennan was stunned to discover the hamburger she bought from the Brunswick East store was blessed.
"Just as a Muslim would not want to eat anything that isn't halal . . . I should have my rights to eat normal, ordinary food that hasn't been blessed," she said.
A Catholic Church spokesman said non-Muslims deserved to know if the food was halal before buying. But he said there was no biblical reason for Christians to avoid halal food.
A McDonald's spokeswoman said customers who did not want halal food should buy from any of its other stores.
Cold War 2006
Cold War Not Over
by Claude Salhani
UPI International EditorWashington (UPI) May 24, 2006
The Cold War is over. The Soviet empire has collapsed. The West has won. The countries of the former Eastern Bloc have nearly all turned to democracy and many have even joined NATO and the European Union. Nuclear weapons (at least some of them) have been dismantled. The world is a far safer place now. Or is it?
True, the demise of the Soviet Union and the destruction of hundreds of nuclear weapons, those left behind in the former Soviet republics, such as Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and others, have made the world much safer than it had been since the end of World War II.
But that was before Sept. 11, 2001, before Iran's desires to join the nuclear club became public knowledge, and before the United States began thinking of positioning missile batteries in former European Soviet satellite states, and in Britain.
According to London's The Independent on Sunday newspaper, the United States is investigating the possibilities of setting up interceptor missile sites in Poland, the Czech Republic and in Great Britain. The report claims both former communist countries are keen to host the new missiles. But a senior Polish diplomat in Washington told United Press International he was not aware of any such deals.
And in the United Kingdom, still according to The Independent on Sunday, British Prime Minister Tony Blair has agreed, in secret, to allow the Bush administration to site U.S. missiles on British soil. The newspaper refers to the deal as "part of the new 'son of Star Wars' program."
The paper reports that No.10 Downing Street "has given an agreement in principle to the Pentagon to station interceptor missiles at RAF Fylingdales, North Yorkshire." The newspaper called the basing of interceptor missiles on British soil "the most significant new military U.S. presence in this country since the withdrawal of cruise missiles 13 years ago."
But Prime Minister Blair and his Secretary of Defense Geoff Hoon refuse to discuss the matter in any detail.
The main preoccupation of the Bush administration in having a missile defense system in central Europe is primarily aimed to deter eventual hostile missiles from Iran. The Islamic republic's Shahab-4 ballistic missile -- meaning meteor, or shooting star in Farsi, is derived from the North Korean No-dong-2 missile. It has a range of 1,367-1,799 miles and can carry a 2,200-pound warhead. Iran has long denied building a Shahab-4.
This, in effect, would place the Baltic states, Poland, parts of Germany and Italy, as well as all of Israel, within reach of Iran's missile system.
"If the Americans attack Iran, the world will change... They will not dare to make such a mistake," former Iranian President Ali Akbar Haschemi Rafsanjani, once said.
"We view Iran's efforts to further develop its missile capabilities as a threat to the region and to the United States' interests, and all the more so in light of its ongoing nuclear program," said Adam Ereli, a U.S. State Department spokesman.
Regardless of the reasons pushing the United States to deploy interceptors in former Soviet satellite states, the fact is that it will not be well received in Moscow. Russian President Vladimir Putin, already not best pleased with what he regards as the West's (read the United States and the EU) infringement on his domain, will not likely be overjoyed. So what can he do? How can he fight back?
Putin can get back at the Western alliance by doing exactly what the Soviet Union used to do; support the enemies of the West. In this case, support Iran. Now far more Machiavellian that jut supporting Iran would be to try and build a new alliance based on Iranian influence, but this time retracing the footsteps of Genghis Khan but in the reverse sense, going eastward from Iran to unite the former "Stans," under the influence of Islam.
Putin hopes he can copy the Reagan administration that supported the mujahideen, and the Israelis who created Hamas. Putin thinks he can use the Islamist card in his favor. But more likely than not, just as it backfired for the Americans, and just like it backfired for the Israelis, hence, so too, will it not work for Putin and it will more likely than not come back to haunt him.
Has the Soviet empire collapsed? Certainly. Has the West won? Undoubtedly. Have most countries of the former Eastern Bloc turned to democracy? Unquestionably. Are there fewer nuclear weapons in the world? Not for long.
Once Iran officially acquires nukes, well, it won't be long before Egypt, Saudi Arabia and maybe even Qatar start their own nuclear programs while rogue states, or yet more frightening, rogue individuals, will be looking to purchase WMD on the black bazaar. Is the world a far safer place today? Hardly. Is the Cold War over? Yes, but a tepid one is about to start.
