CENSRD: The vanity plates the government won’t let you see

You may be a Budweiser-guzzling ex-cop stripper who worships Buddha, carries a pistol, uses Viagra and supports Barack Obama, fine. Just don’t you dare mention any of those facts on your licence plate.

How political Islam is winning the war for talent

Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood are the sharpest examples: they recruit young, smart entry-level members, sort them according to interest and expertise, and, in some cases, allow them to rise the ranks, with an emphasis on ideological purity and a populist touch. Through an internal political Darwinism, the process produced leaders who’ve have been able to outsmart and outmaneuver their secular rivals. It has also energized the lower ranks, where young volunteers then help run rallies, canvass for elections, or take up arms.

Tamil “refugees” still going home for holidays

Canada too casual about threats to freedom

If Canadians are unsure about who they are in the deep sense of belonging to a distinct culture and civilization, then it follows they will remain confused about friends and foes while they are inundated with a diet of pablum-like “good news” stories of globalization.

Canadian feminazis

Phyllis Chesler is too generous describing them as “palestinianized feminists”.

Selling Saudis Arms and Our Souls

The Obama administration has announced plans to sell $60 billion worth of military equipment and services, the largest weapons sale in U.S. history, to Saudi Arabia, a country that supports terrorists who seek our destruction, violates the human rights of its citizens, believes Jews are apes and Christians are pigs and obstructs American efforts to facilitate a Middle East peace agreement. Though the sale may be couched in terms of national security, no one should be fooled that this is anything but a political gambit to allow Obama to claim credit for saving or creating thousands of jobs in the defense industry.

UK: Islamist hardliners call for deaths of Surrey Muslims

Islamic extremists have started openly calling for the destruction of a controversial Muslim sect in a major escalation of sectarian conflict within British Islam, an investigation by The Independent has revealed.

Members of the Ahmadiyya Community have seen a significant upsurge in threats and intimidation over the past four months, sparked by an extremist attack on two of their largest mosques in Pakistan earlier this year.

The Palestinian Refugees: Why Is Everyone Lying To Them?

Palestinian Authority leaders are now saying that they will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state because that would mean that they would have to give up the “right of return” for millions of Palestinians to their original homes inside Israel.

These leaders are actually continuing to deceive the refugees into believing that one day they will be permitted to move into Israel.

Middle East Reporting: The Liars Are Still Active

European politicians want to force Israel to make concessions to its enemies, so they need to demonize Israel. European media outlets have therefore constructed a narrative in support of these politicians’ agenda; and any facts not in keeping with it are ignored.

Holocaust Education Week in Toronto

This year’s offerings at the Holocaust Education Week give K’vod in every way to the survivors of the Shoah and in particular those who had the vision to create Holocaust Education Week. This extraordinary endeavor, which honors the memory of so many murdered brothers and sisters, but also tells stories of sanctuary, bravery, compassion, deprivation, and pain, is a testament to the power of action, determination, tenacity and foresight.

Website of the day: Just Journalism

Mission statement:

Just Journalism is an independent research organisation focused on how Israel and Middle East issues are reported in the UK media. We produce analysis of print, broadcast and online media and regularly publish research on trends in the media’s coverage.

Just Journalism also engages in events and activities designed to stimulate debate about the wider issue of journalistic accountability in today’s rapidly changing media landscape.

Of particular interest is to what extent media coverage adheres to the journalistic standards set out in the UK’s regulatory frameworks. Please see Just Journalism’s Methodology section for more information.

Our work also focuses on the identification of trends in the reporting of key issues in Middle East affairs. For examples of our in-depth analysis, please see Media Analysis and Special Reports.

Our findings are communicated directly to journalists, as well as the general public and other interested groups. In this way we aim to lead an open dialogue about journalistic coverage of Israel and Middle East issues in the UK media.

Google Earth Photos Reveal Syrian Scuds

Israeli defense experts were still sounding alarms this week over Google Earth images made public Friday by the Israeli daily Haaretz. The satellite photos, taken March 22, show Scud missiles ready for deployment at a Syrian base at Adra, where earlier reports suggest Syria is training Hezbollah militants in the use of missiles that threaten large parts of Israel.

What the India-Pakistan Conflict Should Teach the West About the Middle East

There’s one huge difference between the two conflicts. In India-Pakistan, the West has recognized its inability to effect a solution and is therefore not wasting any time, money, or prestige on fruitless efforts. In the Israeli-Arab conflict, the delusion persists that it’s easily resolvable; indeed, “everyone knows the solution.” That this “solution” has repeatedly proved unacceptable to the parties themselves is somehow dismissed as unimportant. Therefore, massive amounts of Western time, money, and prestige continue to be spent on it to no avail.

U.S. to deport terror suspect from Canada

U.S. authorities are saying little about the timing of the pending deportation of a Canadian who admitted he went to al-Qaeda training camps.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons says 37-year-old Mohammed Abdullah Warsame is due to be released from a Terre Haute, Ind. prison Friday.

He pleaded guilty in May 2009 to conspiracy to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization.

Top 10 Movies Banned in the Middle East

What follows is a mostly chronological list of ten movies that for various reasons particularly offended Islamic values or regimes in the Middle East, especially Iran, which takes any opportunity to spew blustery propaganda about our warmongering, cultural aggression.

Jew hating little douche goblin to retire from public life

“The time has now come to slow down, to sip Rooibos tea with my beloved wife in the afternoons, to watch cricket, to travel to visit my children and grandchildren, rather than to conferences and conventions and university campuses.”

I’m sure he’ll still make time to canoodle with terrorists and anti-semites.

Outspent, outmanoeuvred and out-strategised

The West is being ‘outspent, outmanoeuvred and out-strategised’ by violent Islamic extremism, Tony Blair has warned.

The former prime minister said that there had been a failure to challenge the ‘narrative’ that Islam was oppressed by the West which was fuelling extremism around the world.

He said too many people accepted the extremists’ analysis that the military actions taken by the West following the 9/11 attacks were directed at countries because they were Muslim and that it supported Israel because Israelis were Jews while Palestinians were Muslims.

‘We should wake up to the absurdity of our surprise at the prevalence of this extremism’, he said

Canada and Israel to cooperate on birding, environment

Manitoba, which is 30 times larger than Israel, has been eager to forge research partnerships with Israeli organizations, especially on water and environmental issues.

Iranian Railroad for Queer Refugees

Last year, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that there were no gay people in Iran. In a September 22, 2010, interview with Larry King, Ahmadinejad said that there are laws in Iran to punish people for homosexuality, laws that have been on the books for 70 years.

There may be no openly gay people in Iran due to the fact that the punishment for being gay is execution.

A personal account of a gay Iranian asylum-seeker shows that there is an escape from Ahmadinejad’s oppression.

The tyranny of good intentions

Nearly 50 years ago, Kenneth Minogue, a professor of political science at the London School of Economics, published The Liberal Mind, his classic study of the dominant philosophy of the 20th century: radical niceness. Rooted in extreme liberal optimism and salvationist aspiration, this triumphant ideology (Prof. Minogue said) tenaciously advanced the notion that history requires the perfection of human society, that governments – in pursuit of this perfection – are obliged “to provide every man, woman, child and dog with the conditions of the good life.” Prof. Minogue ended with a warning: “A populace which hands its moral order over to governments, no matter how impeccable its reasons, will become dependent and slavish.”

Now professor emeritus at LSE, the 80-year-old has published a remarkable sequel – The Servile Mind: How Democracy Erodes the Moral Life. He picks up where he left off, documenting the ways in which democracy (which once expanded freedom) requires strict obedience to the state – and to the bureaucratic moral order that sustains it.
