Friday Afternoon Roundup - Now We Are All Safe


Daniel Tregerman, a four-year-old boy, was killed by a terrorist rocket from Gaza launched from near a UNRWA school.

“Daniel was disciplined and was always quick to get to shelter. Once the alarm sounded, he always knew what to do and where to go.  Always."

"When everyone would come to the shelter, Daniel would say, ‘Now we are all safe.’”

15 SECONDS

An Israeli father was moderately injured by shrapnel Thursday morning, moments after he helped a group of young children — including his son, whose birthday it was — to scramble to safety when a rocket slammed into the Eshkol region community kindergarten

Jan Berman, 35, and his wife Leora had brought their three-year-old son to the kindergarten for his birthday celebration that morning, when a siren sounded, warning of an incoming projectile from Gaza.

The Eshkol region is so close to the Palestinian enclave that the rocket warning system allows just 15 seconds to run for cover.

With many children still gathered outside the kindergarten, Berman and the kindergarten teacher dashed to herd them inside the building that was reinforced against rocket attacks. As the last of the kids made it into the building, a rocket struck. Although Berman was inside, shrapnel blasted through a window, injuring him in the arm.

36 Shot in Chicago, Obama Sends 40 FBI Agents to Ferguson




NO MEDIA COVERAGE, NO PEACE

Ferguson happens a few times every month. More often in the summer when tempers are hot and crowds of bored men and women fill the streets looking for something to do. Teenagers ransack stores. Small cities stretch their budgets in a bad economy to put as many cops as they can on the street.

And then somewhere between the open fire hydrants, the stores that do most of their business in EBT cards and lottery tickets, the check cashing places and furniture rental outlets, something happens.

A crowd gathers. Fists rise in the air. The police deploy. The EBT stores, check cashing places and furniture rental outlets roll down their shutters. A tense hour passes before the scene fades away leaving behind a crude graffiti scrawl of a wannabe gangsta and his favorite pit bull, a few faded color photos and some purple candles guttering in the night underneath his portrait.

Obama’s Racism for Fun and Profit

You do not see the bigger systemic problem where in a country as wealthy as the United States, with 442 Billionaires, 9.63 million Millionaires, a Michael Brown is forced into such wretchedness by the system to steal from a grocery store.

The tragedy of a country with 200 trillion billionaires that forced Michael Brown to steal cigars to feed his starving family.



A GAZA GROWS IN NORWAY

Suppose a little Gaza is set up in downtown Oslo. Does it end there? Obviously not. This local ISIS draws its support from Muslim Supremacists who believe that they have superior rights to the land. That means they’ll expand. If their little Gaza in Grønland is cut off, they’ll launch terrorist attacks, rockets and dig tunnels.

Terrorism is the inevitable outcome of Muslim colonialism and settlement.

“Next week, President Obama intends to challenge the Caliph of ISIS to 19 holes at the Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course in Hawaii,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. “His entire administration, all his experiences, have been leading up to this point. Every time conservatives ridiculed him, he was actually training for the day when he will personally defeat ISIL. At golf.”

However in an exclusive interview with Jeffrey Goldberg, Hillary Clinton suggested that challenging the Caliph to a golf game wasn’t much of a strategy.

“It just doesn’t make sense,” the former Secretary of State said. “Maybe challenge him to a game of ping pong in the tradition of the US rapprochement with China. Or to see who can best defend a 12-year-old girl’s rapist by calling her a mentally ill slut. I could do that one again in my sleep.”

The higher-profile names included home-decorating maven Martha Stewart, former Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean and American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten, all of whom chatted with Clinton in a private area in the store before the official signing began. “Martha! Martha!” the photographers who had been allowed inside the store called out, hoping for her to look up as she chatted with Clinton.

COME SEE THE VIOLENCE INHERENT IN THE SYSTEM

The great genius of Arab and Islamic supremacism was their pretense that the Jewish story of an indigenous minority resisting their colonialism was really their own story. Having failed to destroy every culture that they had conquered, they instead appropriated their stories, painting their fallen empires as the tragic victims of the imperialism of the very people whom they had conquered and oppressed.

Edward Said tainted scholarship with this revisionist nationalist history. His defense of Arab and Islamic colonialism in an era in which academia no longer looked kindly on conquerors required him to turn history on its head and manufacture a narrative of oppressed colonizers suffering at the hands of the newly liberated indigenous people whom they had oppressed.

This local perversion of history fitted into the larger global perversion of Orientalism which indicted Middle Eastern scholarship for its intellectual colonialism as part of Said’s effort to colonize the study of the Middle East with his own tribal nationalism. Like a thief who pretends to be a policeman to scare away the other competing thieves he imagines are lurking nearby, Edward Said disguised the imperialism and colonialism of his agenda by dressing it up as anti-imperialism and anti-colonialism.

MOHAMMED WAS THE ORIGINAL FEMINIST

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: When one of you asked a woman in marriage, if he is able to look at what will induce him to marry her, he should do so. He (Jabir) said: I asked a girl in marriage, I used to look at her secretly, until I looked at what induced me to marry her. I, therefore, married her.

Book 11, Number 2077: Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah:

“From Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him)” ‘The Prophet wanted to marry a woman, so he sent another woman to look at her and said, “Smell her mouth and look at the back of her ankles.”

HEDY EPSTEIN, OPPRESSED BLACK MAN

Making a career for yourself as a fake Holocaust survivor is horrible enough. Marketing yourself as a fake Holocaust survivor who attacks Jews is even worse. But that’s what Hedy Epstein, a “Holocaust Survivor” who survived the Holocaust in the UK, has been doing.

But then Michael Brown stole the spotlight from Hedy Epstein‘s latest Gaza tantrum, so she headed to Ferguson to get herself arrested.

Next week Hedy Epstein will be claiming that she’s a black man.

GIFTING ONESELF TO SAVAGES

 James Foley, from Rochester, New Hampshire, was one of those romantics who step out from a world of safety to flirt with violence, the more extreme the better; imagining that his opinions against his own country and condescendingly sympathetic to its ideological and terrorist enemies, would make him a gift to them, protected and invulnerable.

In the event, the savage Muslim jihadis didn’t give a damn for his opinions. They killed him because he was an American.

A would-be traitor to his country, he was forced to die for it.

NOW EVERYONE CAN PLAY THE JIHAD GAME

So in other words, we need to make them citizens or else, since it’s our fault, they will resort to terrorism. I hate to tell this loon but actually gangs like MS-13 are already here! And as we reported, ISIS may be too.

Talk about fear mongering and threats — how much worse could it get? So what, we are now “occupiers”? It’s inane statements like this that really makes me question the sanity of progressive socialists.

MORE ON LEFTY MADNESS

Bob Ellis is an illustrious Australian playwright, screenwriter, journalist, filmmaker, and political commentator. Ellis has attracted a great deal of international attention (and incredulity) for his hyper-sophisticated remarks yesterday wondering why there should be so much outrage over the beheading of James Foley by a representative of ISIS. If Joffrey Baratheon can have Ned Stark beheaded, after all…

The only possible observation is that decadence, deracination, and over-exposure to left-wing BS damages the brain and anesthetizes natural human sensibilities, making some people unable to distinguish between contemporary reality and fiction.

THE READING

Writing about Ferguson has become a booming field. No news agency, be it ever so humble, can avoid embedding a few correspondents and a dog's tail of stringers into the town and its environs, to sit outside of undestroyed, un-looted shops, clicking away on their laptops, meeting up with other leftists and the oppressed protester or grieving mother of the week.

Ferguson is hot (well, it is August) with the suggestion of violence brimming under the surface, except when it's no longer a suggestion but a volcanic eruption. Ferguson should be described as a "troubled town." Throw in occasional ironic references to civil rights and Martin Luther King, Jr., and end every article or broadcast by emphasizing that peace is still far away.

Weigh every story one way. Depersonalize the cops and shopkeepers, personalize blacks. One is a statistic, the other a precious snowflake. A blacks-only looting and torching a Korean-owned store is always in retaliation for something, but a shopkeeper's defending his property with a gun is rarely a retaliation for anything. When shopkeepers repel a mob by simply waving their guns from a rooftop, suggest that this latest action only feeds the "Cycle of Violence" and quote some official who urges the shopkeepers to talk and negotiate with those who would harm them – whether or not there actually is anything to talk about. Well, maybe free Swisher cigars for the overweight among the mob, with unlimited EBT card use at the counter.

These are the kind of enemies we have - cockroaches who are, both and at once, (self-) brutalized to an unimaginable degree AND bereft of all moral order. At a certain point it becomes MORE THAN entirely clear that - via their collective acts and ethos - they have either already placed themselves, or are fast approaching the line at which they are, beyond the pale of all that which may be entitled to the protections of social organization. So, if anyone wants to know what I THINK Israel ought to do in these circumstances - what I WOULD DO, were I Bibi - my answer is this: Begin by destroying EVERY - and I mean EVERY - UNWRA installation. Level it all down to bare remnants. Then, if the two-legged roaches we are up against don't get the message, we need to begin cutting off their water and power (by bombing which makes it painful and expensive to reconstruct if need be). Finally, they are at the point where they have richly earned a Dresden like assault which puts them back at not square one, but at square zero. It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of 'people'.

Bob Ellis is NOT illustrious here in Australia or anywhere else, oh mighty Sultan. He's a complete nutter, has been so for decades, and is well known as such in Australia... Even left wingers won't usually touch him...!
