Sounds of Silence from moderate Muslims

Where are all the marches, the protests, the expressions of disapproval from the moderate muslims on this one asks Michael Coren. 

"Australian Living Treasure" sides with beheaders

I have quietly  despised  Michael Leunig since he came out of the closet as a Jew Hater. Yea yea, I know, he too from time to time still wore the see-through fig leaf of the "I-dont-hate-Jews-only-Israel"   lie.  I find this mantra  vulgar and I hate  Jew hatred, seemingly the default position of the modern Left.  In Australia  "left causes" of this kind  are ruthlessly promoted    by  tax-payer funded Media like the ABC and SBS who want to be like the BBC when they grow up and who both out-aljezeera Aljezeera  and by the Fairfax press. 

Leunig is a daaaarling of and  in the pay of all three. He publishes his cartoons in the islamophile "Sydney Morning Herald" and "The Melbourne Age"In the year  1999 he was even honoured with the title of "Australian Living Treasure";  you earn plenty of  brownie points from the pack  if you run with them.

And now, in chronological order,  to the pictures which made me reach for the vomit bucket:

Here is an "Australian", Mohamed Elomar, holding up two severed human heads, trophies of his "jihad".

"Australian" Mohamed Eloma

A picture of his son that appeared on his website with the caption: "that's my boy". (Published in The Australian Newspaper).

The American Journalist, James Foley,  a minute before an English sounding (*) Islamic jihadist cuts off his head in front of the camera.

And here is the "cartoon" by Leunig declaring his hand once more, a few days after this decapitation  murder. 

This   sneering cartoon is nothing less than a blatantly defiant  promotion of "swords" and islamic barbarians.

The "message" from the "Australian Living Treasure" is quite in tandem with that of James Foley's murderer. 

PS: I dont know if "Leunig" dedicated an approving cartoon to  the Lee Rigby or other beheadings of Westerners...

The Proper Way of Beheading

This video (thank you vladtepes) is actually serious. It shows a Muslim cleric (*) explaining to a group of his followers the "proper way to behead people". In his own oh-so-caring way he insists that slaughtering  humans is different from slaughtering animals, and, if done correctly it should become a quasi orgasmic experience for the beheader, according to the teacher: 

The sword, you see, should be placed on the neck and then be moved back and forth, while slitting the throat - thusly finishing off the victim and at the same time rewarding the executing Allah-u-akbarist with a "petite mort".


- but (with apologies to the bard): 
What's in a name? that which we call a Muslim
By any other name is still a Muslim. 


Update 24. August 2014: 

thank you vladtepes


Someone once posted on some internet blog a comment which I found a little close to the limit, but seeing this video I dont know if we can still speak of "limits", let alone respect them. This poster wrote:

Palestinian Leader: "Hamas is killing my people"

Jordanian Palestinian leader Mudar Zahran: 

Hamas is killing my people; 

Jordan oppresses Palestinians; 

leftists are wrong; 

Gazans are against Hamas; 

Hamas defenders just hate Jews !

Hamas fires from exactly where the civilians are because they know the Israelis won't shoot... If Israel wanted to kill all of Gaza, they could do it in 15 minutes. All we have is 2,000 innocent civilians killed because of Hamas' recklessness.

Hamas is just another terrorist group terrorizing MY people. 


Update 26. October 2014:
Strange thing happened: this video above disappeared some time ago with the comment you can see above. Then today it reappeared on the excellent vladtepesblog, so here it is again:


Hamas has to be stopped. 

MY people are suffering. 

My people are BLEEDING. 


Sex Slaves and Jihad Brides 2014 style (updated)

Until not so long ago, when I heard about the Arab Slave Trade, it is this painting below by the French painter Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824-1904) which came to my mind. A sensual painting, but of a nearly "safe" sensuality because what it depicted was well and truly in the past, wasn't it? 

And then, a week or so ago I came across a cry for help in this Article with the title: 

"Les Irakiennes vendues comme des esclaves au souk de Mossoul(Iraqi women sold as slaves in the market place of Mossoul)

The article translated reads: 

THE “RED CRESCENT OF IRAQ” calls upon the international community to intervene and save Christian women, sold in the Souks of Mossoul by ISIS (*). 

Jihadists now impose their laws from another time in the zones they occupy in the centre of Northern Iraq, namely Mossoul. All communities are abused, and especially Christians. The latter, who have lived in this region for 2000 years are today stripped of their possession and chased out of their homes. Those who resist are directly executed. 

The women are led like cattle to the market and auctioned off like the slaves in other times.

(*) The original text reads "Islamic State", but, feeling hat 'State' would be giving "them" some form of legitimacy, I translated it as "ISIS". Meanwhile the abbreviation of "IS" seems to have been widely accepted. How fast things deteriorate...


What shocked me the most were the two photos in the text.  And even now, more that a week after I first saw them, they still haunt me. These pictures don't give me the comfort of distance in time as did Gérôme's painting, nor are they "art", they show, brutally, what is happening now, and not far away from you nor from me. 

"To write poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric" (or words to that effect) wrote Theodor W. Adorno, I feel a bit  like this about playing music after Mossoul, but Mozart's Lacrimosa hits the right tone, I think. 



In a related article, just published, Dr. Phyllis Chesler  writes: 

Western Sex Slaves for ISIS:

The Twisted Psychology of Jihad Brides

The most barbaric bunch of blood-thirsty misogynists this side of Genghis Khan are yearning for western “brides”—and the “brides,” who will be no more than sex and reproductive slaves, are coming, via an internet campaign, to service ISIS’s male Jihadis in the Caliphate in formation in Syria and Iraq. There is a “marriage bureau” in the northern Syrian town of Al Bab for Western women in a marrying state of mind...

Read the whole article here.

2nd Update: 

This article in French from "L'orient LeJour" announces that: 

« À Mossoul, 700 femmes yazidies ont été vendues sur la place publique à 150 dollars pièce...(in Mossoul, 700 yazidie women have been sold on the public market place for 150 Dollars a piece) »

 3rd update 1. November 2014

Someone said that Islam  had great difficulties to justify its existence on moral grounds. The more I look the more I am convinced that it has even greater difficulties aesthetically. See this confirmed in the following video which I found on  vladtepesblog:

Gaza's wide open spaces

Here are some translated extracts from a very richly illustrated and well argumented article by Professeur Franklin from Riposte Laique:

(Gaza: the pictures that the French medias are hiding from you) 

Gaza has a lot of uninhabited zones

In a text describing the conditions under which his team realised a reportage about the launching of a rocket from a densely populated civil zone in Gaza (we showed this video in our previous article), Sreenivasan Jain, correspondant of the Indian TV chain NDTV writes: 
« ...Instead a series of arguments have been thrown at us, for instance, the ‘we have no choice’ argument, suggesting that Israeli encroachment has deprived Gaza of open spaces from which Hamas can launch attacks. This is factually dubious – one only has to drive down the Salahudin Road from Gaza City in the north to Khan Younis in the south to see that the Gaza strip is not, as is commonly believed a continuous urban agglomeration. »

A picture is often worth a thousand words, so here is a map of Gaza: 

All the white zones on that map are either fields or wastelands. Consequently Gaza has numerous uninhabited zones from whence HAMAS could launch its rockets. 

But the terrorists of Hamas, as all terrorists, are cowards: they prefer to launch their rockets from populated zones in order to use civilians as human shields, which constitutes a war crime. 

It is not surprising that "antisionists" and other anti-Jewish "militants for peace" reject categorically any information coming from Tsahal, the defence army of Israel. But it is a scandal that the French medias do the same and prefer to pass on slavishly the propaganda from Hamas terrorists, just as they passed on, slavishly, the propaganda from Goebbels during the second World War. 

However we prefer to take our information (among other sources) from the only democracy in the Middle East, just as the French Resistance took their information for Radio London, which broadcast from the UK, the only democracy in Europe at that time. 

If you think that my choice of music here refers ironically to the Siren Song of Hamas, the terrorist occupiers of Gaza "we are sooooooooooo fenced in and soooooooooo crowded, we just have to launch rockets from private houses, hospitals and kindergartens", you are right. 

pssst, ever wondered why their brothers in Egypt do not want to open the "door" to Hamas? 
It's not only Israel you know.... 

Is it me or are Siren Songs getting more vulgar, having devolved from the rather grand Homer and the poetic Heinrich Heine to the offensively stupid  lies of a bottom-dwelling terrorist group seducing some of the most dangerously moronic  herds  in human history?

Siren Song
By Margaret Atwood

This is the one song everyone
would like to learn: the song
that is irresistible:

the song that forces men
to leap overboard in squadrons
even though they see the beached skulls

the song nobody knows
because anyone who has heard it
is dead, and the others can't remember.

Shall I tell you the secret
and if I do, will you get me
out of this bird suit?

I don't enjoy it here
squatting on this island
looking picturesque and mythical

with these two feathery maniacs,
I don't enjoy singing
this trio, fatal and valuable.

I will tell the secret to you,
to you, only to you.
Come closer. This song

is a cry for help: Help me!
Only you, only you can,
you are unique

at last. Alas
it is a boring song
but it works every time.

Hypocrisy over Gaza and dead children


Their "Dead babies Jihad" works well for HAMAS.  

I wonder: has anyone seen dead HAMAS terrorist? The victim numbers we are fed by this terrorist group are reported to be  made up exclusively of "Children" and "Civilians", not a single dead HAMAS terrorist among them...

A propos "dead children": 

Daniel Greenfield in yet another of his brilliant articles that take no prisoners asks: 

Are all dead children created equal?

Here are a few extracts: 

While furious mobs of leftists draped in Keffiyahs and corn syrup were shrieking about Gaza in the public squares of every major city, ISIS was continuing its genocidal advance on Baghdad. In the last 24 hours, the Yazidis, a non-Muslim minority, fled ISIS to a mountaintop where their children are dying of thirst. 
The stark reality of their plight, caught between thirst and a genocidal army, is in sharp contrast to the phony claims made about Gaza where truckloads of goods continue passing from Israel during wartime, where the malls have iPhones and the five star hotels offer cakes so tall they can only be cut from a crane.

The dead Yazidi children won’t inspire any protests or much in the way of outrage. The hysterical rallies for Gaza won’t suddenly turn into anti-ISIS rallies. If any of the angry white hipsters with dead baby posters are asked about it, they will offer some variation on, “It’s Bush’s fault” or “It’s Tony Blair’s fault.”


They  use (the children)  to wage war in the name of peace when they come in handy. 
And when they die of Hamas rockets and clan feuds, when they are killed by ISIS and the entire murderous alphabet soup of Islamic terrorism, they drop them like yesterday’s garbage.

For Hamas and its supporters screaming “Free Gaza” at the top of their lungs, children, dead or alive, are just another propaganda weapon in the arsenal of terrorist theocracy.

They are eager and willing to let Hamas go on killing Jewish and Muslim children in the name of its war.

Postcard from New York

At the moment my 'postcards' are unapologetically in support of Israel because I think, apart from fighting for its sheer existence, this brave but embattled little country is  also fighting a particularly nasty and nearly overwhelming  propaganda war. Among a  herd that is as moronic as it is violent,  even  the-Jews-eat-babies-brigade finds a clientele.  So I put whatever I can, be it  pebbles against rocks, into what I consider the right side of the scales. 

In this conflict, neutrality is not possible, at least not for me.

Here  I found one of the most satisfying videos I have seen in a long time. I am soooooo happy that these Jewish people understood that a) there are no brownie points in  tending the other cheek and b) eventually one runs out of "other cheeks" to offer.


Bullies are cowards, call their bluff and see them scuttle back into their holes.

Well done, New York !



Quote of the day: 

Hitler and his colleagues were adored not despite their hatred of Jews and their organization of German politics around the dehumanization of Jewish people. They were supported by the Germans, and by the majority of the people in the European lands they conquered because of their anti-Semitism and their dehumanization of Jews.

A Postcard from Sydney

A perfect Sydney Winter's Sunday, a wonderful community, showing their solidarity with Israel. There were many double Australian/Israeli flags - when I work out how, I will post some of my own photos here.  

One little "B-moll note" (as they say in France)  and it came, of course, from a Politician. He shall remain nameless, mainly because I never heard of him before and  didn't hear the name clearly today: He had sent his "apologies for not attending" as he had "a previous engagement in the West of Sydney". Derisive laughter from the crowd, estimated at 10,000, derisive because locals know that "Sydney's Western Suburbs" are largely Muslim areas. Ah well, as doggie for his bone, so the politician for his votes, one begs for them where one can... 

There were some wonderful voices and songs and, although I am  not Jewish, someone singing of  what I understood to be a part of Kaddish made me feel gratitude towards  my dark sunglasses. I want to find that song and when I do I will bring it to you.
