The heartbreaking stupidity of America’s gun laws by Richard Wolffe

members of Congress and statehouses on both sides of the aisle and across the country have proved themselves to be delusional cowards. Either they act like nothing can be done to stop gun violence, or they pretend guns make America safer.

Donald Trump is right. This is a mental health problem at the highest level, and our leaders need urgent treatment.

From Baghdad Burning blog, Sunday, September 11, 2005

From Baghdad Burning blog, Sunday, September 11, 2005

It has been four years today. How does it feel four years later?

For the 3,000 victims in America, more than 100,000 have died in Iraq. Tens of thousands of others are being detained for interrogation and torture. Our homes have been raided, our cities are constantly being bombed and Iraq has fallen back decades, and for several years to come we will suffer under the influence of the extremism we didn’t know prior to the war.

As I write this, Tel Afar, a small place north of Mosul, is being bombed. Dozens of people are going to be buried under their homes in the dead of the night. Their water and electricity have been cut off for days. It doesn’t seem to matter much though because they don’t live in a wonderful skyscraper in a glamorous city. They are, quite simply, farmers and herders not worth a second thought.

Four years later and the War on Terror (or is it the War of Terror?) has been won:

Score:
Al-Qaeda – 3,000
America – 100,000+

Congratulations.

More Godless Cowardice

It seems my previous post needs to be updated:

THREE terror attacks this week carried out by pathetic, Godless cowards.

Charlottesville, Barcelona and now Cambrils.

A second terror attack has taken place in Cambrils, a coastal town around 120km from Barcelona. Six bystanders and one police officer were injured – two seriously – when they were reportedly deliberately hit by a car.
Police officers then shot dead five suspects, some of whom were wearing what appeared to be explosive belts.

more details here:

However, even this update is lacking.
It only addresses the terror attacks that have been widely publicised – which more or less means attacks on Western targets.

A wider picture can be seen at this link :

Pathetic Godless Cowards

Two terror attacks this week carried out by pathetic, Godless cowards.

CHARLOTTESVILLE

BARCELONA

One was quickly and strongly condemned by the US President, the other was reluctantly and half-heartedly “condemned”.
One was Islamist inspired. The other was home-grown, white supremacist inspired.

 

The following bible quote reveals the inspiration behind their cowardly acts (as well as the source of so much of Trump’s rhetoric).

You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it

Trump Swiftly Condemns Barcelona Terror Attack. Charlottesville? Not So Much.

He then promoted a fake story about mass murdering Muslims.

 (Article from Mother Jones)

With pertinent details still unfolding, President Donald Trump took to Twitter Thursday afternoon to condemn a terrorist attack in Barcelona, where a white van plowed through the popular tourist street of Las Ramblas, killing at least 13 people and injuring more than 50 people.

The president’s response to the Barcelona attack was far swifter than his delayed response to the white supremacist clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday and his initial failure to flatly denounce white nationalists. Instead, Trump blamed “many sides” for the violence.

Trump later followed up his condemnation Thursday with a second tweet that perhaps explains why the president was so quick to react to Barcelona and not Charlottesville. It should be noted that the story he cites below is fake.

How ISIS Began in Colorado

The next few posts will be audios from the Zwemer Centre for Muslim Studies.
http://www.zwemercenter.com/

They are a series of interviews with Dr. Nabeel Jabbour about the origins an influences behind the rise of present day extreme Islamism.

The roots of this extremism stretch back to surprising places.

I had recently come across a lot of the content of this particular audio from a “secular” source on ANB radio
