They are Killing Little Baby Chickens

Inglorious Basturd (Just say to "no" to kosher chicken)

Inglorious Basturd (Just say “no” to Israeli chicken)

1.  Two towns in Rockland County, New York apply for economic development grants under a special New York State development program. One town’s grant has already been approved by the town’s council and is supported by the people who live  in  the town. In addition, Rockland County said it approves the project and even the State of New York has approved it.

The other town’s grant application has no approval on the local, county or state levels and is opposed not only by the residents of two adjacent towns, it isn’t even approved yet by the town itself.

Here is the wiki page for the first town. Give it a quick read.

Here is the wiki page for the second town. Give it a an even quicker read.

Which town do you think got the grant? You get one guess, unless  you are in the Shas party – Shas party members get three guesses. Here’s a little more about the story of The Chicken Plant of New Square. (Sounds like a nice title for a horror movie, doesn’t it? And wait till you see who some of the actors are. Steven King would be thrilled and he’d just have them play themselves in the movie.)

“I must question how our grant application was denied, when a grant proposal that does not have a single approval and is opposed by the county in which it resides and is controversial, is approved,” he wrote, while asking for an investigation.”

Those words are from Haverstraw Supervisor Howard Phillips. Haverstraw is a small New York town that applied for an economic development grant from the state of New York. The grant program is called Restore New York. The guidelines call for municipally sponsored projects to demolish or rehabilitate vacant, abandoned or condemned properties. The projects must also be architecturally consistent with nearby and adjacent properties.

Haverstraw’s application was to take such a property and build quality housing for citizens over 55 years of age. The proposal is strongly supported by local residents, especially skilled craftsman, who would be doing the building. The proposal was also approved by the town itself, by Rockland County where it is located and by the State of  New York.  Also, Haverstraw is going through very tough economic times, as Phillips make very clear in the article. Phillips has written to NY attorney general Andrew Cuomo complaining about the Restore program’s turning down his town’s application.

New Square’s application on the other hand was awared a 1.6 million dollar grant for the construction of a chicken plant five times the size of the old one. Since it would be sitting right next to two other Rockland County towns who strongly opposed having a smelly chicken plant next door, the mayor of New Square, Israel Spitzer, got support from other Islamofascists such as Senator Charles Shumer, (Likud, NY), Senator Eliot Engel (Likud, NY) and Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee (Likud, New Square), plus a moron known  as State Senator Thomas P. Morahan (Moron, NY) also supported the chicken plant.  And presto, New Square now has funding for a chicken plant that nobody wants.

2. Now we here at Mantiq al-Tayr have nothing against chickens, or even eating chickens, but we do notice a trend toward the Israelization of the chicken industry. Note here the attack on this probably not Zionist-controlled chicken plant owned by Hy-Line a US founded company. Cruelty to animals is a terrible thing and is condemned by all of us at Mantiq al-Tayr. But it sure is interesting that just as Nathan Runkle’s Mercy for Animals organization is criticizing Hy-Line, the United States is working with Israel to increase Israeli poultry exports to the United States.  The bankruptcy of Agriprocessors – owned by Islamofascists, might even have helped pave the way for more Israeli imports. Sure would be convenient if Hy-Line lost market share at the same time. A search on Nathan Runkle and Agriprocessors on Google and Ixquick was interesting.

Then there is also Empire Kosher.

3. We have a great confession to make here at Mantiq al-Tayr.  Yes, the rumors you’ve been hearing are true. “Say it ain’t so, Mantiq” just won’t work. Yes, Mantiq and all the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr are, yes indeed we are ——– hummus sexuals.  We love hummus.

There is a great Arabic expression طلعت من الحفلة من غير حمص which means literally “I left the party without any hummus” which basically means that “I got nothing out of it.” Well, we need to change that expression to طلعت من البقالة من غير حمص “I left the grocery store without any hummus” because the hummus industry is about as zionized as the poultry industry is.

The biggest hummus section is by the company known as Sabra which is the Hebrew word for a Jew born in Israel.  (No it is not short for Sabra and Shatila, though maybe it ought to be.) Sabra was founded in 1986 by Yehuda Pearl, an Islamofascist. Later he sold the company to Strauss Elite (which now owns the company in partnership with Pepsi) and which claims to be the second largest food and beverage company in Israel.  You’ll find the kosher symbols prominently displayed on the product. To learn about kosher symbols, you can go here. You can also go here.

Then there is the Tribe variety. You know, Arabs have Tribes and stuff, so what a great name. (It used to be called Tribe of Two Sheikhs.)

Let me digress for a  minute.

Whenever I see food that is Arabic marked as Mediterranean, or Arabic-food restaurants calling themselves Mediterranean, I figure one of two things –  the stuff or the store is Arabic owned but they don’t want to say so because Arabs own hollywood, the banks, the media, the poultry industry and have Congress not just in their back pocked but right up their ass, or because the stuff is Israeli and they want to conceal that fact for the very same reasons. (and yes, I know that people in Greece and other non-Arabic lands make hummus.)

Back to the Tribe. Well, no, the Tribe is actually a different tribe as is pretty clear from their website and their food is, of course, kosher.

The last company with hummus on the shelf is Cedars, which as far as we can tell is owned by an an American of possible Arab ancestry and by another American of probably Greek ancestry. Yes it’s kosher, most things in your local grocery store bear at least one kosher certification, but at least it doesn’t seem related to Israel.

Nonetheless, I guess it’s back to just making hummus at home. It tastes better anyway. Please support the Israeli boycott by posting recipies in the comements section.  Also, click on the picture below for a great hummus recipe from a blog I’ve just discovered.

Are you a hummus sexual?

Quel Bordel

1. For the past two weeks the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr have been extremely busy working on a new computer program which we now believe we have perfected as you shall see presently.

As many of you know, the “About” section of this site is written in Arabic. This caused many Mantiqiyyans some angst because they can’t read Arabic – just like most of the people who formulate US Middle East policy. However, one particularly smart Mantiqiyyan reader dropped the Arabic text into an on-line computer translator and managed to get a pretty good rendering.  There is no doubt that machine translation has come a long way.  However, it still has a long way to go – until now.

I know you guys are just chomping at the bit to see what we’ve come up with here. Be patient for just a second.  Here’s a sample sentence that we will run through a standard on-line machine translation tool. The sentence is:

ألله في كل مكان

The sentence says “God is everywhere.” We ran it through this translator and we got this result:

God everywhere

Not bad, but clearly deficient.

We proudly announce that we have completed the development of a computerized translation program that not only renders the original source text accurately into English but if you buy a special add on our program will also provide accurate interpretations of the source text. We boldy announce the perfection of this great program that we have named the Tafsiranatortm.  So, for example, let’s take the source text and run it through the basic version of the Tafsiranatortm. The result is:

God is everywhere.

We just love complete sentences here at Mantiq al-Tayr.  Really.

But the true value of the program lies in its ability to provide interpretive commentary that will elucidate the true meaning behind the text – our program can literally “read between the lines” as some pseudo fake phony people in the language business like to say.

So, we ran the same text through the Sport version of the Tafsiranatortm and this is what we got:

God is everywhere. Comment: This means that what the Quran says in Surah 2: verse 115 is quite literally true. That passage says that :”Wheresoever ye turn, there is the face of God.”  God is at once transcendent and immanent.

Pretty cool, huh?

We also like the fact that the Tafsiranatortm can highlight its comments in red.

2. The Tafsiranatortm has another great feature. It can translate text from English to English while also providing commentary. Going from English to English was the most difficult challenge we faced here at Mantiq al-Tayr since discerning the actual meaning of all the bull shit that is in the main-stream press can be pretty challenging. But, again, as you shall presently see, the Tafsiranatortm is without peer in this regard.

So, for example, we took the following text from an article written by ADL kingpin Abe Foxman. In this article, Foxman supports the idea of a two-state solution to the Zionist-Palestinian problem. Yes indeed even Foxman is on the two-state bandwagon these days which ought to tell you that that bandwagon is a complete total fraud and that Obama’s blathering about it is a deception, but again, I digress.  We ran the following text from that article through the Sport version of our program:

“Israel should simply find a way to acknowledge that a solution to the conflict requires a Palestinian state. By saying already that it accepts all prior agreements that it will abide by the road map, and by virtue of their looking to the actions of President George W. Bush, who was the first American president to call for a two-state solution, the Israeli government has all but accepted that concept.”

And this is what we got:

Fuck the Palestinians. Israel can use the two-state rhetoric coming out of the White House to its own advantage by arguing over every fine point in all the prior agreements while continuing to build settlements, confiscate Palestinian land, and murder all the Palestinians it wants while continuing to talk about how much it wants peace. Comment: Abe Foxman is a goddamn liar.

You gotta admit it, the Tafsiranatortm is one hell of a program.

3. So, we here at Mantiq al-Tayr decided that with all the furor caused by Barack Obama’s speech in Cairo this week, said furor being completely fake of course, that we would run parts of that speech through the Sport version of the Tafsiranatortm in order to “read between the lines” and get some true insight into what the White House is really up to. Remember, the White House is being run by a professional Israeli-firster who actually volunteered to serve the Israel military, but not the US military. Oh my, again I digress.

Anyway, one item in the speech that attracted lots of attention from all the usual suspects was Obama’s alleged criticism of Israeli settlements on Palestinian land. David Ignatius and Charles Krauthammer,  are really in a huff about the settlements – though Krauthammer is, as usual, so extreme that he is really funny. He doesn’t even need a Tafsiranatortm .

But we have a problem here at Mantiq al-Tayr with the term “settlements” when applied to areas of occupied Palestine that now house over half a million Jews. “Settlements” is such a nice word. The Israelis are “settling” Palestine, making  the desert gloom –er – bloom, as they say.  “Settlements” are nice things, we all want to live in a settlement. Who wants to live in a trailer park or in “sprawl”? No one, but everyone loves settlements – so reminiscent of settling the USA back in the 1800s.

But, as everyone actually knows, these settlements are illegal structures. Furthermore, as Ignatius points out, you can actually get tax breaks by contributing to them if you know how. Yes, the settlements use lots of our money in various ways to carry on their illegal business of stealing Palestinian land and screwing the Palestinians.

So, we took the full text of Obama’s speech and did a search and replace on the word “settlements”.  First of all, we found that the word only appeared twice in the whole condescending supercilious address, so again we wondered why Ignatius, Krauthammer and others are so vexed by the issue. But anyway, we replaced the word “settlements” with “whorehouses” since the settlements basically take our money and screw the Palestinians.  Also, “whorehouses” just has a different ring to it and shows the illegality of the whole operation.

So here is Obama’s original text – the entire portion of his nearly  hour-long address that talks about settlements – but with our search and replace operation completed.

“At the same time, Israelis must acknowledge that just as Israel’s right to exist cannot be denied, neither can Palestine’s. The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli whorehouses. This construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. It is time for these whorehouses to stop.”

We ran each of these three sentences through the Sport version of  the Tafsiranatortm and here are the results, sentence by sentence.

Sentence One:  At the same time, Israelis, but not the Israeli government, might want to consider the possibility that that just as Israel’s right to exist cannot be denied, neither can Palestine’s. Comment: while Israelis are thinking about acknowledging Palestine’s right to exist they will continue to take more and more of Palestine’s land, thus acknowledging Palestine’s existence and in the way actually intended by the speechwriter.

Sentence two:  Rahm Emmanuel does not accept the legitimacy of brand new  Israeli whorehouses, but has no problems with the whorehouses already built and which house about half a million Jews. Comment: Since Rahm is an Israeli masquerading as an American the whole sentence is meaningless anyway and requires no interpretation.

Sentence three:  “It is time for these whorehouses to stop, or whatever.” Comment:  Note that the verb “to stop” is being used in an intransitive way. The whorehouses are “to stop” just like a car stops – all by itself. No one is being asked to stop the whorehouses and since the whorehouses by their very nature – just read Charles Krauthammers disgusting piece on the matter – must grow, the US will do nothing to actually stop the whorehouses.

So, we have quite a mess don’t we oh fellow Mantiqiyyans? And we now will use the French word for a mess:


Reposted: Have You Killed a Palestinian Today?

1. In the good old days when the Summer and Winter Olympics were hosted in some really odd country, Canada for some reason comes to mind, the hosts used to be able to introduce their own sport to the smorgasbord of increasingly ridiculous sporting events that are the fruit of the “Olympic Movement” as the rich like to call it. So, maybe the Canadians would have introduced curling but they were beaten to this by the French in 1924. Anyway, a host country could push to have one of its sports as a “demonstration sport” to further the sport’s popularity.

Embracing the universalist elitism of the “Olympic Movement” and keeping in step with the mores of globalism, the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr very much hope that the Olympics will soon be hosted by Israel or by its satellite country, The United States of America. If the games are hosted in the US, then we recommend that waterboarding be introduced as a demonstration sport.  In fact, recent events have provided excellent victims to be publically waterboarded by Israeli-trained CIA contractors and the winner would be the one who gets the most outrageous confession from these four morons who were set up by the FBI. (While Rosen and Weissman get off. Oh, and where the hell is Edward Mosberg? An email from Mantiq al-Tayr to the author of the article sent two days ago asking if Mosberg has come back to the US or not remains unanswered.)

However, in the interests of providing a really entertaining demonstration sport that will stimulate the loins of everyone from AIPAC to Judith Miller, we here at Mantiq al-Tayr held a minyan and bobbed our heads up and down begging Shadai to have the Olympics held in Israel’s eternal capital (no, not New York you smart asses), Jerusalem.

The Israeli national pass time is finding creative ways to murder Palestinian men, women and children. They are very good at it and probably would take the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. Still, it’s great fun and I’m sure that the US and the UK would at least give the Izzies a run for their money that they took from us.

So, for example, let’s take the case of Israeli Border patrolmen Shachar Butbika and Dennis al-Hazub. They won a gold medal in 2002 for abducting a 17 year old Palestinian boy, beating the shit out of him, and then kicking him off the top of their patrol car as it roared down the road at 80 kph.  His head smashed into the pavement and the impact killed him. What made this one even more fun was that the boy violated Israeli law by resisting their efforts to toss him off the patrol car – kind of like a battle you have when you catch a big fish and real it in. Hahaha-Aretz reports:

He was beaten by Butbika and then forced to jump from the moving vehicle. He resisted, holding onto the jeep’s roof, but was eventually forced out. One of the officers shouted “he’s dead.” They drove away, without offering medical assistance, and tried to eliminate the evidence.

The 17 year old boy’s name is: ‘Imran Abu Hamdiya

Here is a photo of him.

Imran Abu Hamdiya

Imran Abu Hamdiya

Butbika and al-Hazub also won the silver medal that day as well. For earlier in the day they picked up another Palestinian youth, 20 year old Alaa Sankrut.  Sankrut

was hauled onto the jeep, driven to a discreet location and kicked and beaten with a pickaxe handle, sustaining skull fractures

Unfortunately, Butbika and al-Hazub fucked up and the guy lived, much to the dismay of Rabbis throughout the land.

You anti-Semites might be pleased to know that Butbika, al-Hazub and two more of their cohorts were sentenced to several years in jail recently – having somehow been convicted of manslaughter, yes, manslaughter, not premeditated murder, manslaughter.  They’ll spend about as much time in jail as Michael Vick.

Hunting Palestinians is a game that goes on every day and each day more and more interesting ways of scoring are being invented. This past week two IDF dudes used an ice cream truck to drive around the West Bank. No doubt the truck could be counted on to bring children within point blank range and if you get a clean shot, you get a t-shirt. Unfortunately for these two clowns, they didn’t coordinate their activity with their partners in crime, the Palestinian police, so when the Good Humor Izzies opened fire, the Palestinians fired back – clearly in violation of the Torah.

Yes indeed, Palestinian Plugging can sometimes be a dangerous sport, sort of like automobile racing and sometimes the driver gets killed. Then everyone can mourn and cry and glory in self-sacrifice and in general be a complete total sanctimonious asshole.

For example, in this case, the hunter ended up getting killed by his prey. We learn all about what a wonderful hunter he was, coming to Israel from that great bastion of virulent anti-Semitism known as Canada at the tender age of eight. But 10 years later he was a professional Palestinian Plugger.  He even once tried (in vain) to save the life of a “terrorist” (“terrorist” is the Hebrew term for “Palestinian”) who had been shot by IDF hunters. He was a “big hearted” Palestinian plugger.

Cry me a river.

2. Now that the US economy has gone down the sewer and the banks, all owned by Islamofacists, have gotten about 12 trillion dollars, some of you out there in Mantiq land may be looking for jobs. Well, how about going to Israel to teach English?  Judy Steiner wants you.

“There is always a shortage of English teachers and you have to ask, where are you going to find new ones?” Dr. Judy Steiner, Chief Inspector for English Language Education in Israel told Haaretz.

Given the current financial problems in the United States, the Ministry of Education and the Jewish Agency hope to find more Anglos willing to consider an exciting future in teaching English to Israeli youth.

Just think of what a great challenge this would be. Hebrew only has two tenses, basically past and present. But English has trillions, so teaching the complex and subtle English tenses to semites can be difficult. You’ll have to teach them all sorts of conditional clauses and how to use them properly in English. Examples:

“If I had known he was a Palestinian, I would have thrown him off of the roof of the patrol car.”

How about this real quote:

“We have to make sure that no Palestinian individual remains under our occupation. If they (Palestinians) escape then it is good; but if anyone of them remains, then he should be exterminated”.

Or this real quote:

“behind the Kotel we have a mosque. But when they pray even though they are in our holiest place, they face Mecca. Their back is to Jerusalem. So you can see from only one sign that it does not belong to them. They have nothing – no connection.”

So are you up to the challenge? Your job will be to teach the Hebrew speaking children of Russian immigrants (many of them criminals) to Israel to speak English like Meir Kahane. It’s going to be tough and you need to have the right qualifications.

“Very often when there is a shortage, we put in people who are not completely qualified. But we don’t take in anybody.” Steiner said.

No, they do not just take anybody. It turns out that you have to be a Jew.

Imagine seeing an add in the Chronicle of Higher Education:

Seeking Professor of Middle Eastern History at (blah blah) University. Only Muslims may apply.

So, put on your Yarmulka and get that job. Then you can teach the kids to read the Geneva conventions.

Tikkun Golem: Mossad Jane, AIPAC and You

1. The nest of Israeli-firsters, Israeli ass-kissers, dual loyalists and no doubt outright Israeli agents that is known as AIPAC is holding its annual policy conference in Washington, D.C. for three days starting Sunday, May 3. Mossad Jane Harman is scheduled to speak there and no doubt Haim Saban will make an appearance. The questions is, will the Israeli agent to whom Mossad Jane admits talking to on the phone and who allegedly bribed her by dangling the chairmanship of the House Intelligence Committee in front of her be there as well? Very possibly so, especially if that person, who for some very strange reason has never had his name released, is an AIPAC employee.   It sure would be nice if the transcripts with full idents suddenly appeared in the main stream media as the conference begins.  Bet that would put an end to the continuing efforts to stop the trial of former AIPAC employees Rosen and Weissman.

Here’s what the tuyuur have pieced together about the conversation that got Mossad Jane some unwanted exposure. This is all based on main stream media and blog reports of various parts of the story.

Mossad Jane is on the phone with an unnamed “Israeli agent“. Now an “agent” of Israel would be an American citizen working on behalf of Israel. And in fact, Mossad Jane has publicly acknowledged that she knows which conversation is the one at the height of the current controversy and that the person she was talking to was an American citizen. (We know this thanks to Dr. Juan Cole, the only Kennedy-liberal type I know whose blog should be ready regularly. Dr. Cole has a good reason to pinch the ass of the Israeli lobby since it played a major part in screwing him out of a job at Harvard University.)  So, it appears, this American Mossad Jane was on the phone with was working on behalf of Israel and thus was an Israeli agent. Now, according to the New York Times and picked up by Mondoweiss, the person Mossad Jane was talking to told her that he would have a major figure in California threaten Pelosi by withholding campaign contributions from her. That “California” figure is reportedly Haim Saban, a billionaire who came to the United States from Israel.

So, who was the person Mossad Jane was talking to who was suspected of being an Israeli agent? Saban already is one and, so it seems, so is Mossad Jane. Who’s that third guy? Does he work for AIPAC like Rosen and Weissman?

We think it would be a good idea for the FBI to go back into AIPAC’s offices this Sunday with warrents while the organization is holding its Israel love fest and maybe have a look around.

We also think it would be a good idea if the independent media would attend AIPAC’s version of Bohemian Grove and carefully report what is said and WHO is in attendance.  Maybe they’ll even get to interview Mossad Jane herself.

2. Many have commented on how interesting it is that Mossad Jane was a strong supporter of questionable wire-tapping schemes that Alberto Gonzales favored and that he may have even used evidence gathered against her to keep her on key.  Not so sure about that last point, but there is no doubt that the Zionist Golem is a major player in the erosion of the rights of every-day US citizens.  Despite all the blathering on about the concept of “healing the world” (tikkun olam) that the “Zionist light” crowd, to borrow once again Xymphora’s phrase, likes to attribute to liberal and progressive Judaism, there is quite another side to this concept and I think you had just better pay attention to it folks.

Rabbi Avi Shafran, the head of public affairs for the charming Agudath Israel of America, informs us that tikkun olam has been grossly misrepresented by the liberal Jewish community in the course of  his review of a number of meanings of the phrase. He quotes Maimonides on the concept:

“[In] any case where someone takes human lives without clear proof [of a capital offense] or the issuance of a warning, or even on the strength of a single witness [as two are required in a Jewish court], or where a person hates someone and kills him [seemingly] by accident, a king is permitted to execute [the unjustified taker of life] in order to repair the world [“li’saken ha’olam”] according to the needs of the time� to strike fear and shatter the strength [literally, “break the hand”] of the world’s perpetrators of evil.”

Gee, isn’t that nice?  Shafran’s view on this is even more horrifying than the quote itself:

First he paraphrases the quote to make sure the reader understands what this most famous of Jewish thinkers has written (as usual red highlighting is mine):

And so, Maimonides informs us, there is yet another meaning to tikkun olam, the authorization of a nation’s leader to do whatever is necessary, “according to the needs of the time” even suspend the ordinary rules of evidence in capital cases – to preserve the security of his society from those who seek to disrupt it.

Shafran very much approves of this and poses the question of how the Maimonidean concept of tikkun olam might pertain to our own society, leaders and times.

I hope you are sitting down. Ready? Here goes:

Reasonably, it would seem to advocate the right, in fact the responsibility, of the chief executive of a country threatened by murderous elements to take strong and unusual action to undermine those enemies of civilized society – even if some personal rights may be compromised in the process.

So, interestingly, the concept of tikkun olam would seem to argue most eloquently today for things like, say, the imprisonment of enemy combatants, secret wiretaps and surveillance of citizens.

And thanks to people like Mossad Jane and her AIPAC and NeoCon buddies, that’s exactly what we have.

3. Mossad Jane never did get that job she was reportedly offered as the chair of the House  Intelligence Committee even though she is said to have agreed to do the bidding of an “Israeli agent” by working to get the AIPAC spy trial killed.  The chirping here at Mantiq al-Tayr has brought us to the conclusion that she did not get the job because of the scandal over this very issue that was in the media back in 2006 when she could have been appointed. Pelosi, who may hate Harman – which is about the only good thing about Pelosi that I can imagine – probably didn’t appoint Harman to the post because if she had done so, the transcripts that are the center of controversy today (and back in 2006) probably would have been released.  This would have shed so much light on the Israeli lobby that we would have seen them all running for cover like kitchen cockroaches in a slum owned by Sam Zell.

4. We want to thank Hesham Tillawi and his weekly radio show on RBN called “Current Issues” for the “Mossad Jane” reference. Furthermore, last time we promised you that we would teach you all how to say the name “Hesham.” His name is not Heyshaaam, nor is it Heshem nor Hessian, nor Hshem, nor even just plain old Heeeesham. No, no, no. Even his friends at RBN like the great Michael Collins Piper can’t say his name right. As for the guest host on his show, Mark Glenn, he’s pretty much hopeless on this one issue and he even has Arabic blood in his veins.  So let’s learn to say it correctly. Our guest teacher for this lesson is no less than Mossad Jane herself.

Isn't she lovely?

By the way, has anyone else noticed that many of the callers in to Hesham’s radio show lately are morons?
