"the clear & present danger" presented by islamo supremacists, radical islam and what it wants.

We don't make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians, non-civilians, innocents and non-innocents. Only between Muslims and unbelievers. And the life of an unbeliever has no value. It has no sanctity.
-Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad, head of the al Muhajiroun group in London.

Asked about his comments that he wanted to have the banner of Islam at 10 Downing Street, Muhammad said, "Yes, it's my dream. I believe one day that is going to happen. Because this is my country, I like living here."

Hussein Massawi, former leader of Hezbollah, summed it up very pithily:"We are not fighting so that you will offer us something. We are fighting to eliminate you."

"Muslim institutions, schools and economic power should be strengthened in America. Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver themessage of Islam ...... Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

Omar Ahmad Co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations

Daniel Pipes has been researching Islam for the past three and a half decades. He directs the Middle East Forum - a Philadelphia think tank. Among his twelve books, four focus on Islam. In 2003, President Bush appointed him to the board of the U.S. Institute of Peace.
Pipes on islamofascists~~~ "militant Muslims are at war with America, not because of what America did, but because Islamists perceive themselves as being in a long-term conflict with the values of the West.
Excerpted from Arab & Iranian telecasts in March & April of this year. Available & thoughtfully subtitled by the indispensable MEMRI.
[suicide attacks] carried out by boys and girls… these redeem self-confidence and hope… because a nation that does not excel at the industry of death does not deserve life.
"The Muslim Students' Association on american campuses ~~
Queensborough Community College in New York in March 2003 "We reject the U.N., reject America, reject all law and order. Don't lobby Congress or protest because we don't recognize Congress. The only relationship you should have with America is to topple it … Eventually there will be a Muslim in the White House dictating the laws of Shariah."

Islamic fanaticism was not created by anything that we have done

Goodbye my Love,
I will carry Your memory within me,
as I await the travail of time.
Which I must cross,
before I will touch your face again.
resting in the warmth of your soul,
together again.

thoughts on life.....and death from south america 

im no brain surgeon im not all that deep either. but sometimes life forces you to consider things, points of view, the fortunes of war, and misfortunes, ...so to speak... and what it means to your life and those around you. anyway here are some observations from one of lifes travelers..


peru is good and bad. like anywhere, some is amazing beauty, like the mountains. some really scary ugly, like the guy I saw last week sitting by the side of the road with a gangrenous hole in his leg and the whole thing swollen up 3x normal and turning black. while people walked by like everything was right with the world.

but I would still put them near the top for a third world country. they work hard, thier is an exellent work ethic for the most part. and if you can afford it anything is available here that you might want in the U.S.

the driving is absolutely horendus bordering on mad max meets cannon ball run except with even less regard for traffic laws and rules.

everyone is expected to kiss each other hello and goodbye, they say "chow" when kissing goobbye, im a typical american and its too much for me but im getting used to it.

my wife fired our maid today, long story...
her mothers maid looks at me wierd.. I avoid her...
her brothers maid comes down from thier house to ours giggles and runs away when she sees me...

its really humid here, but only about 81 degrees.

on a personal level most people are nice, and everyone I have met have had impecable manners. muchismo/chauvinism is a little to high for me, even with women, but I would say they seem to be a culturally less agressive people than americans. people look at a women driving a car like they're spotting a martian. and if your a man in the passenger seat it really gets thier attention.
and they have a horrible habit of ignoring lines and cutting in front of other people like they dont exist. this in particular has spiked my bloodpressure once or twice.

they are more reserved in some areas, but like to dance, and ....**shudder*** sing karioki.... physical fitness seems to be at a higher level here, and I rarely see fat people.

anyway, thats enough for today...

I forgot, today was lisa's birthday, she would have been 38

this mans essays on the defense of and value of western culture are amazing and if you are a liberal you need to read them, maybe when you are done (if you have a moral compass or soul) you might turn your self around from a life spent attacking america. and if you are of right mind but feeling down, again they are a must read.
