And speaking of Iran...

I'm sure everyone has seen the headlines regarding the three hikers that strayed over the Iraq border into Iran.  Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd, and Josh Fattal have been detained in Iraq since July 31, under speculation that they were spies.  The Iranian state newspaper recently announced that the three will be charged with espionage.  Sharia law dictates that espionage is punishable by death.  I wonder how that compares to the sentence Najibullah Zazi is going to receive for attempting to blow up a subway?

Sky News speculates that the three are held as hostages rather than spies.

The republic's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad suggested in September that the detainees' release might be linked to the release of Iranian diplomats he said were being held by US troops in Iraq.
And good old Hilly, all she's doing is crying "Can't we all just get along?"
Speaking in Berlin, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton condemned the news and appealed for their release.

"We believe strongly that there is no evidence to support any charge whatsoever," Mrs Clinton said.

She urged Tehran to free the group, calling on the authorities to "exercise compassion".

Shane Bauer is from Boulder, just a few miles up the road from here.  I've never met him, and although I don't agree with his politics I've been insanely jealous of his photography work for quite some time.  I can only hope that some of the bigwig Democratic fundraisers in Boulder are putting pressure on the Obama administration to bring these kids home.  But who am I kidding?  I'll be surprised if we see anything more than Hillary's brief statement.

Warhead technology's needed for power plants, isn't it?

Any bets on our pretty princess president lifting a pinky finger about this, other than to give a shout out to his buddy Ahmadinejad?

The UN's nuclear watchdog has asked Iran to explain evidence suggesting that Iranian scientists have experimented with an advanced nuclear warhead design, the Guardian has learned.

The very existence of the technology, known as a "two-point implosion" device, is officially secret in both the US and Britain, but according to previously unpublished documentation in a dossier compiled by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iranian scientists may have tested high-explosive components of the design. The development was today described by nuclear experts as "breathtaking" and has added urgency to the effort to find a diplomatic solution to the Iranian nuclear crisis.
Diplomatic solution?  Really?!

How fucking presidential

Over a third of the speech for 'shout outs', and seems more like his teleprompter has broken than that he's actually grieving during the last two thirds.



God bless our troops, and God bless those who have lost their lives or are injured today.

German ships trying to finish the job from 65 years ago

Those crazy Germans just aren't doing much to make up for sending six million to the gas chambers, are they?

The Francop, the German-owned vessel seized early Wednesday by the Israel Navy that was carrying weapons destined for Syria and Hizbullah, is the second German-owned ship found carrying Hizbullah-bound arms in the past month.
I'm sure Hezbollah was just importing weapons to protect their people from lions and tigers and bears, oh my.

Chancellor Merkel is at least pretending to be outraged about the incident, I suppose we should wait and see if this happens again before we go invading Germany.  Oh, wait, the arms themselves are coming out of Iran, so maybe we should invade Iran!  Oh, wait, we have a pretty princess for a president who would rather see Israel be exterminated than invade Iran.  No, I think I'm being charitable there in overestimating Obama's love for Israel...

Updated with a picture of our pretty princess president.

Et tu, Emmerich, et tu?

Oh for fuck's sake. So. Apparently the only thing that doesn't get trashed onscreen (or maybe at all) in 2012 is the Kaaba. Why?

Because Emmerich and his co-writer didn't want to get fatwa'd.  (btw if fatwa'd isn't a word it totally should be.  Must credit atc)

What's actually interesting is to contrast this with the people who wanted to get their landmarks trashed.  Look, I'll admit that I don't really blame Emmerich for taking the less than brave way out.  It's an idiotic destroy the world movie.  No point in getting all head chopped because of it.  On the other hand, this is the kind of self-censorship that's creepy.  Really creepy. 

Also, I will totally and freely admit that this post is just an excuse to post pics of Amanda Peet.  Why?  Because she's awesome is why. 

Pics below the fold.
more...

True Profiles In Courage

I am fucking sick and tired of people misusing the "Speaking Truth To Power" line in this country. You want to see real courage? You want to see real "truth to power"? Check out this Iranian Student confronting top clerics in public.

This international mathematics Olympiad winner blasted Khamenei in person in an unexpected move, focusing on “supreme leader’s performance” and the “lack of criticism against supreme leader.”

In addition to criticizing Khamenei personally and the office of the supreme leader, this student also criticized the state radio and television’s biased coverage of issues and the police’s brutal crackdown of people protesting against the election results.

Ayatollah Khamenei was forced to respond to the student’s criticism, but according to several eye-witness sources, the supreme leader was so distraught by the student’s remarks that he cancelled the usual prayer session and left the meeting early.





Folks, never forget these people. They truly are taking their lives into their hands to speak out. Never forget the Poles, the Hondurans, the Koreans, or any other people around the world who try to speak out in the face of true threats, violence, intimidation, and torture.

Thanks to Veeshir

***UPDATE*** Wel, well, well. Take a look at how many young Iranians are commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the capture of the US Embassy in Iran.

Zee-zaw!

This story about a couple of donkeys painted to look like zebras for the benefit of impoverished kids visiting a zoo would be kind of cute if it didn't come out of one of the most fucked-up corners of the world...

A genuine zebra would have been too expensive to bring into Israel-blockaded Gaza via smuggling tunnels under the border with Egypt, said owner Mohammed Bargouthi. "It would have cost me $40,000 to get a real one."
And if your people would give up their insane Jew-hatred (pardon me, Zionist-haterd, because that's totally different, you know), quit blowing themselves up among crowds of innocent people, and stop smuggling Allah-knows what else through those tunnels, your kids might be just a little bit better off.

As an aside, it's interesting to know that there's a price list for just about everything as far as smuggling goes.  How much for a hippo?

Snakes in the Garden of Evil

The worst part about being a Jew? You can't do most of the stuff you're accused of. A lot of it would be cool
Like this, for instance
The latest rumor making the rounds among Arabs in Samaria is that Israelis are training snakes to attack innocent farmers

They almost caught one of the Zionist Serpent Entities but
Local Arabs said that after the attack, the snake “escaped” toward Ariel.

They don't give the Israelis credit, the snakes were supposed to bring back the squirrels.

Mad Mullahs or cartoon villians?

Today is "Steal from Yourish"* day.
First up, we have comedy gold from the Mad Mullahs.
"Today, the military is able to both detect stealth cruise missiles and destroy them," the television quoted Miqani as saying.

How do they do this phenomenal feat?
He gave no further details.

I figure he couldn't because they're still trying to figure out how to photoshop a Klingon warbird into the pic.
I always wonder if they realize exactly how silly they look when they say stuff like this.


*I know it's none of my business, but to any Jews out there reading this, at the next meeting you should nominate her to replace the incompetents you have controlling the media. If she's not on the ballot, start a write-in candidacy. The ones you've had in charge for the last 30 or 40 years have really sucked.

Is that a bomb up your ass or did you have the chili?

Sorta related to the last post, because after reading/seeing both posts, you are left with the question, "How gay is this?"

Okay, we've all seen the link about the Yemeni trying to blow up some Saudi oil tick.
But Omar at Iraq the Model noticed something....odd.
The bomb was up his ass. That's why the "prince" wasn't killed, the explosion went out the path of least resistance, you know, the direction explosions in the colon usually escape.
Omar also asks if he put it there himself or:
quote
But on the other hand if someone else helped him do it then that makes the whole operation unholy, and very gay, right?

Much like wheel boys in the previous post, the answer is "Very gay".

I don't comment on "holy" or "unholy" anymore (none of my business), but when I was a believer, I'm pretty sure I would have said, "Unholy" whether it was up his ass or in his backpack.

The Israelis Must Not Have Read The Memo That They Should Just Shut Up And Let Obama Do What He Wants

What a shock that all but a few Israelis see through Obama and his "I Won, So Shut Up" bullshit.


The number of Israelis who see US President Barack Obama's policies as pro-Israel has fallen to 4 percent, according to a Smith Research poll taken this week on behalf of The Jerusalem Post.

Fifty-one percent of Jewish Israelis consider Obama's administration more pro-Palestinian than pro-Israel, according to the survey, while 35% consider it neutral and 10% declined to express an opinion. The poll of 500 people representing a statistical model of the Jewish Israeli population had a margin of error of 4.5%.

A much-cited Post poll published on June 19 that put the first figure at 6% had been cited by top officials in both the White House and the Prime Minister's Office as the catalyst for recent American efforts to improve the American-Israeli relationship. But the new poll proves that those efforts have not improved Obama's reputation among Israelis.

Yeah. No fucking shit. Kinda tough believing in The Won when he has sided with thugs and dictators every time a foreign policy problem has erupted since he became President.

I am so gonna win that betting pool

You know, that betting pool I suggested where I think I'm the only one to actually make a declaration.  Not the one in the actual post, the one in the comments where I suggested we place bets on who Obama is going to invade and when.

I might even go so far as to suggest Obama's approval rating will go below 30% by, let's say 90 days after he proclaims in September to the UN that Israel needs to abandon Jerusalem and its settlements and recognize Palestine.  Because it wouldn't surprise me if Obama sets a three-month deadline for Israel to bend over and grab its ankles.

So I suppose the question is, if One Jerusalem's sources are correct and this isn't a bunch of unnecessary panic, what would be Obama's motivations for doing this?  Would this be a simple case of Obama naively thinking that peace in the Middle East and a halt to international terrorist attacks would magically occur if Israel were effectively neutered, or would the destruction of Israel be more malevolent in nature? 

Yeah, there's a whole lot of speculation here based on anonymous sourcing.  Good manners prevent me from speculating on what sort of watery hell some people might now be occupying, so I'm gonna speculate on this instead.

Fuck you, Taliban

And Fuck You, MSM for letting this take a back seat to Michael Jackson.

Afghanistan is trying to have its second democratic election since the overthrow of the Taliban in 2001, and the remaining Taliban is blowing shit up.  40 people are reported dead so far, including four US soldiers killed by a roadside bomb. 

The Afghan election is another case of more being hopeful that a democratic process will gradually lead to a cultural change than actually liking any of the candidates.  I think it's pretty obvious by the strong reactions against the elections that the Taliban recognizes how dangerous it will be to their survival to allow democracy to take a foothold.

Think they'll cooperate?

I don't think I have a problem with this, assuming that the 400 workers asking to be moved to day shift during Ramadan are willing to pull extra shifts during Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah, and Passover to help other employees honor their personal religious traditions.

Following in his footsteps

Assuming Hamas doesn't decide to suddenly perform a humanitarian action (and I think that's a pretty safe bet), Friday will be the fourth birthday Gilad Shalit has spent in captivity. 

On Wednesday, Gilad Shalit's younger sister Hadas is enlisting in the IDF

Of course Iran isn't pursuing nukes

The world's nuclear weapons watchdog is hiding data on Iran's drive to obtain nuclear arms, senior Western diplomats and Israeli officials told Haaretz.
I'm sure the data they're hiding are direct orders from Ahmadinejad instructing absolutely no one to pursue nuclear weapons. Oh, wait...
The officials and diplomats said that the International Atomic Energy Agency under Director General Mohamed ElBaradei was refraining from publishing evidence obtained by its inspectors over the past few months that indicate Iran was pursuing information about weaponization efforts and a military nuclear program.
ElBaradei is the same guy who said, "We must abandon the unworkable notion that it is morally reprehensible for some countries to pursue weapons of mass destruction, yet morally acceptable for others to rely on them for security." Oh, and he's the guy who, along with Hans Blix, was in charge of the Iraqi nuclear inspections. He's repeatedly expressed that if everyone had just held off a little longer, he's certain Iraqi inspections could have been completed. It should come as no surprise that he's aiding yet another enemy of Israel and the US in its secret weaponry ambitions.
