Happy United Nations Day!

I’ll bet you didn’t know it, but October 24 is UN Day, and a landmark 70th anniversary for the organization. Seventy years of super-national bureaucracy, supporting dictators and terrorists, sex traffickinganti-semitismwealth transfers, and micro-managing the lives of individuals. The United States, one of 193 member nations, pays 22% of the UN’s general budget, and 25% of its peacekeeping budget, annually. Yipee!

This is a particularly noteworthy week at the UN, because this is the week when UNESCO attempted to have the Temple Mount in Israel’s Capital Jerusalem declared a Muslim Holy site. Imagine if UNESCO declared the Kaaba a site sacred to Catholicism and you’ll get an idea of what that means. But only an idea, because if the Kaaba were in any way officially identified with any other religion than Islam, thousands and maybe tens of thousands of people would be assaulted and / or murdered by Muslims unhappy with the decision.

As it is, UNESCO fell short of declaring the Jewish Temple Mount to be Islamic. But they did declare Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem and the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron to be Muslim sites, facts and history notwithstanding.

Counter-factual is the UN’s middle name ( I think that’s what the C in UNESCO stands for). Just look at the countries on the UN’s “Human Rights Council“.  Even Human Rights Watch can’t stomach it.

UNESCO Declares St. Peter’s Basilica a Muslim Holy Site

Unesco today declared St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, long considered the seat of the Roman Catholic Church, to be a Muslim holy site. A resolution introduced by six Arab countries at the U.N.’s cultural arm today stripped the Catholic Church of any administrative control over the site, and recognized only the Muslim faith as having any cultural or historic ties to the location.

“At last we can begin to undo the travesty perpetrated by the Crusader Occupation against the 18th holiest site in Islam,” said Mahmoud Abbas, President-for-life of the United Ummah Nations, a region formerly known as the Middle East and North Africa. “The unlawful Crusader occupation and usurpation of the Palestinian Northern Territories must end,” he said.

Construction of the Basilica was begun in the 4th century, on the site traditionally believed to be the tomb of St. Peter, the first pope. The Vatican, historians and others point out that the use of the site by the Catholic Church long predates the Muslim religion, and the birth of its founder.

“All lies,” responded Abbas when asked for comment. “This is the site from which the Prophet Peacebeuponhim is known to have flown his weasel-faced burro back to the Nearest Mosque after leaving instructions for a mathematical theory of perspective. It’s all algebra, you know.”

A New York Times editorial praised the UNESCO move, pointing out that, since there were no archeological sites to be excavated at the location, which had been in continual use for 1300 years until the completion of a newer Basilica on the same site, the archeological record did not support the claims of the Catholic Church.

The text of the Resolution states that UNESCO “affirms that St. Peter’s Square and adjoining Basilica are an integral part of al-Aqsa Mosque.”

“Praised be Allah the merciful,” UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon intoned from his office when informed of the UNESCO decision. “Now at last the nations of the world can begin to realize the peaceful diversity which is only to be found through the recognition of the religion of Islam as the controlling power over everything on earth.”

Keeping Up with the Mohammeds

You remember Ahmed the clockboy. He’s the one who bought a clock, took it out of its case, put it in a box, and took it to school in Irving, TX. He was subsequently arrested, though never charged with bringing a phony bomb to school. Mr. Obama tweeted clockboy an invitation to the White House, even before any details were made public, having been alerted to the horrible, islamophobic events ahead of time.

I mean, why the hub-bub? It’s not as if clockboy chewed a pop-tart into the shape of the state of Florida.

We’ll never know, because the boy’s father, Sudan-born Mohamed Hassan al-Sufi –a publicity hound in the Kardashian mold –became shy and retiring when asked by the school to allow it to release its side of the story. So we’ll never actually know what, if anything, happened. Aside from an Islamic Activist family’s search for fame and fortune.

Cha-ching!, and Mission Accomplished!

Hot on the heels of visiting the President of Sudan  –currently wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to answer charges of crimes against humanity concerning the unpleasantness in Darfur –little Clockmed has been awarded a full multi-year scholarship to attend school in Qatar. Qatar, of course, has its own human rights problems, what with Sharia Law being the main source for legislation. But clockboy should be safe, as long as he doesn’t write or recite any poetry.

And now the clock boy has been named “American Muslim of the Year” by terrorist group Hamas-linked CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Nothing but blue skies from now on!

So goodbye, Clockboy, goodbye. And as they say in Texas, don’t let the door hit you in the ass.

Random Violence, Jewish Victims

On Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry blamed the “violence” in Israel on a massive increase in settlements in “recent years.” That’s as specific as this particular Secretary of State is able to get, not only because he knows no facts, but because what he said is a lie. There has been no “massive increase in the number of Jewish settlements“.  And the current violence in Israel is more accurately described as unprovoked Palestinian terror attacks on Jews.

In fact, by Wednesday, even our truth-impaired President attempted to walk back Kerry’s linking of “the violence” and the building of settlements. The trouble is, Mr. Obama did so by insisting the Secretary never made any such linkage.

“I don’t think that’s what Secretary Kerry said,” Obama asserted, despite the fact that Kerry was quoted saying precisely that in multiple news outlets. Obama said that Kerry meant the situation between Israelis and Palestinians “creates the potential for more misunderstanding and triggers, and that’s something that has been true now for decades.”

Uh huh.

For his own part, Mr. Obama said he believes

“. . . that it’s important for both Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israeli elected officials and President Abbas and other people in positions of power to try to tamp down rhetoric that may feed violence or anger or misunderstanding, and try to get all people in Israel and in the West Bank to recognize that this kind of random violence isn’t going to result in anything other than more hardship and more insecurity.”

My goodness, that random violence again. When did we last hear the president invoking random violence?

That would be when Islamic terrorist gunmen in Paris, having just murdered the staff of Charlie Hebdo, went on to murder patrons of Hyper Cacher, a kosher supermarket. A completely random “bunch of folks” who all just happened to be Jewish. Never mind that it’s a kosher market.  Never mind that the Islamic terrorist gunman specifically asked patrons if they were Jewish before shooting them.

It’s random. The president said so.

Sauce for the Gander

The Fascist Left have really gone insane over Ben Carson.

First they went nuts because he had the temerity to suggest that a Muslim would not make a good president, since their fundamental belief system is irreconcilable with, well, Western Liberalism. You know, freedom of speech, and religion, and association; equality before the law for everyone including women and minorities; a whole list of other rights and freedoms, many of which are found in the Bill of Rights.

And we have all those rules and regs:  no raping children, no raping adults, no owning slaves, no hurling gays off the roof, no killing Jews or Christians, or Buddists, Hindus, Animists or Wiccans, or women who touch the hand of the guy handing them their grocery bag .

And here’s the real killer, so to speak: no cruel and unusual punishment, which means no cutting off hands and feet and heads, no lashings, and no crucifixions. Why, here in America, it is not even permissable to kill your daughter or sister because she married the man she wanted to marry. That’s the kind of thing that can really cramp the style of your dedicated Muslim.

Of course there are reasonable people who are Muslims who do not believe in or engage in any of those blah, blah . . . but the point is that all of these things are sanctioned by Islam and its Sharia Law code. So someone who accepts Sharia as the supreme law is not qualified to be the president of this country, and could not truthfully take the oath of office swearing to uphold the Constitution.

It’s really not debatable.

But the people who immediately savaged Ben Carson for pointing out that fact were not interested in debating anything. They were interested in denouncing Ben Carson as a racist and an “islamophobe.”

Dr. Carson is not one to shy away from controversy, and now he’s come out with the suggestion that armed people are better able to defend themselves than unarmed people. Where will it end?

Luckily, both actor Seth Rogen and GQ magazine were there to hold the line. As Rogan argued in a tweet: “F*ck you Ben Carson”.  And as GQ explained in a headline: “F*ck Ben Carson.”

Pithy. And also, as the Left says, racist.

You can’t just go around swearing in print at an African-American, however incoherently. If Ben Carson were, say, a racist preacher, or a murder-inciting shakedown artist, or a community organizer enamored of anything in a turban, or a hate-filled amateur numerologist, or a shill for every lie the current administration wants paraded on national TV, any hint of criticism would be labeled racist . Any hint.

Ben Carson’s race didn’t change when he declared his candidacy. So in keeping with the logic of the Left, Seth Rogan is a racist. And Drew Magary of GQ is a racist.
