1. The photo above is of a true American hero who, while seriously wounded, guided his crippled ship by the North Star over the Mediterranean on the night of June 8th, 1967. The photo is from the website of the USS Liberty Veterans Association.
Ignatious turned to McGonagle afterward. The secretary of the Navy, against a backdrop of whirring cameras, placed the Medal of Honor around the skipper’s neck. The five-pointed gold star, suspended from a blue ribbon, rested just beneath McGonagle’s chin. The son of a sharecropper-turned-janitor, the man who had guided his ship to safety by the North Star, lowered his head and wept. From “The Attack on the Liberty” page 281. James Scott is the author.
2. MASA‘s founders, who base their thinking on research findings in the field, recognize that participation in the long term program in Israel is the most effective tool for shaping the next generation of Jewish leadership in Jewish communities, for cultivating their Jewish awareness and their sense of shared destiny with the State of Israel, and for contributing to the creation of a common worldwide Jewish agenda.
3. You know, there is so much to write about that it is really hard sometimes to be able to focus. I’ve been meaning to write about the living mummy Pamela Geller again, but basically Max Blumenthal beat me to it. His piece here is excellent and should be required reading for IRA terrorism supporters who are on the Homeland Security Committee in the House of Representatives. And this piece of his is also quite good and below I’ll be posting a couple of pics Mr. Blumenthal posted there taken from sites belonging to the living mummy herself. The living mummy is advocating genocide and is doing so in part with an organization that you can make tax-deductable donations to. Yes, advocating genocide in these United States is considered charitable work. Maybe the chief IRA terrorism supporter on the Homeland Security Committee, who like Geller, lives in New York, ought to have investigators from his committee pay her a visit? Here’s her picture so you can find her.
Yes indeed, we have troops fighting and dying all over the world so that the head of a major intelligence committee can be a supporter of terrorism and so that raving lunatic bigots can advocate genocide at taxpayer expense. Gee, maybe that dimwitted draft-dodging cocksucker George W. Bush was right when he said that there are people who hate us because of our freedoms. But I digress.
Here are some pictures that your tax dollars are supporting.
The tuyuur here kind of liked this one too. Max Blumenthal got this one from the mummy’s Facebook page.
But this one gets the prized Sanhedrin Award (SA) from all of us at Mantiq al-Tayr.
4. Also, blogging takes up way to much time. You see, I had this great idea but blogging got in the way. I bumped into this Muslim Imam, we’ll call him “Fred” to hide his true (and non-existent) identity. Fred is from Pakistan and he is an Imam at the USS Liberty Mosque in Bumfuck, Idaho. It’s a nice mosque.
He has a Ph.D. in Islamic studies from Al-Azhar, speaks five languages, served six years in the US military and has been a major proponent of reconciliation between Muslims and assholes like Pam Geller. He does lots of charitable work in the community helping the homeless, works as an aide in Bumfuck’s hospital (he even introduced doctors at Bumfuck General to the science of anesthesiology), and he teaches adults- who themselves are teachers at Bumfuck High School (school motto “Exit”) how to read. Needless to say, Fred, in his role as a Muslim leader has been approached by at least 7 different FBI agents who have tried to get him to blow up Bumfuck Middle School, the Bumfuck Jewish Day Care Center, Bumfuck’s ADL chapter headquarters and most recently, the Sarah Palin’s Birthplace Museum in downtown Bumfuck. Fred says he damn near agreed to that last one but it turns out that the Museum is right next to Bumfuck’s only Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet, so Fred and his interlocutor decided not to do it because the blast might kill all the FBI agents while they are having lunch or dinner.
Anyway, back to my great idea. You see, Fred’s recently been in touch with the head of a country that considers itself an Islamic State (we’ll call it Bombistan) and which sees itself as a custodian for Muslims world-wide. This Muslim leader, we’ll call him Billybob, has set up two organizations designed to get Muslims to travel to Bombistan in order to make them see how important Bombistan is to their Muslim identity so that they will consider moving there permanently and becoming Bombistanis or to at least be willing to spy on the United States for Bombistan. Billybob has gotten his government to provide millions of dollars as seed money to for the two organizations and has also solicited funds from the Muslim World League (MWL), Muslims United Against Fucking Assholes Like Pam Geller (MUAFALPG), The Muslim Brotherhood (MB), Hizbullah (SHI’ITES!) and the Organization for the Establishment of a Bomb Making Factory in the Ground Zero Mosque – General Command. (OEBMFGZM-GC).
So I told Fred “You know, I bet you could set up chapters for those organizations in the United States as tax-deductable charities. It’ll all be perfectly legal and you can send your agents into all the mosques and the country’s 6 million Islamic schools to ask for money and the stupid fucking shit-eating football-watching American taxpayers can foot the bill. At the same time you can recruit all those Mooselims to go to Bombistan and learn where their true identity lies.”
Fred liked this idea a lot. So he set up offices for both organizations in Washington, DC, New York, Bumfuck, and in Lakewood, New Jersey. He staffed them with current and former members of Bombistan’s military and with local hires many of whom are dual Bombistan-US citizens. He got both organizations recognized as tax-deductable charities and started raking in the mullas, er, moolah, you know, money. Lots of it.
You’ll never guess what happened. Surprise! Surprise! The FBI, CIA, NATO, ADL, Scotland Yard, KGB, MOSSAD, Shin Bet, DHS, DHL, UPS, ATF, NYPD, Shomrin, Ateret Cohanim and the PLO all raided all of Fred’s offices, Fred’s house, Fred’s mother’s house, the houses of Fred’s 22 adult children (hell, he has four wives), and the KFC in Bumfuck all on the same night and took everything away as evidence. Fred is in Gitmo, his employees are being put on trial for espionage and there’s no KFC in Bumfuck anymore. (To be continued).
5. For some reason, I like this picture.
Skulz Fontaine has done it again.
6. The following video is a tribute to the Shas Party. I think the song says it all and its title should be their motto.
