Now, will Western feminists take the hint and start thinking it might not be a good idea to let Muslims immigrate to Western countries?
Don’t bet your bra on it.
Don’t worry for him too much — This is Sweden. All he’ll have to do is claim that necrophilia is compliant with some Muslim mumbo jumbo, then scream racism and Islamophobia, and the Swedish justice system will fold like a cheap deck of cards. In enough time for all involved to get to Ikea.

‘So help me God’ optional in Air Force honor oath
Air Force Academy cadets are no longer required to say “so help me God” at the end of the Honor Oath, school officials said Friday.
Fe fi fo fum, I smell the blood of some knave/loser who runs around in his parents’ basement clad only in his underroos doing political activism from his iPad.

Okay, I was wrong about the underroos, and the parents’ basement thing.
Other than that, the prosecution rests.
Muslim City Councilman Pleased As Candidates Back School Holidays
But passersby at Flatbush and Atlantic avenues in Brooklyn said the holiday proposals are getting out of hand, 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported Saturday.
“We all have some holidays in common, but to celebrate every one of them is a lot,” one man said. “It’s too many, I think.”
“If you give everybody off holidays, then the children will never be in school,” a woman said. “I think that our children need to be in school at all times, because they need to be educated.”
“Getting out of hand?” “It’s too many?” What kind of racism is this?
Don’t they know that nothing is ever too much for the sacred cause of diversity? People talk about Christianity, Islam, Judaism and all the other major religions and faith systems practiced in New York. But diversity is the most holy of all.
I wonder…what would you call a small mosque? A mosquito?
Since they’re tax credits and not direct giveaways, and will only be relevant to people who have net liability on their state income tax returns, I don’t think this will be a mechanism for Bellcurvii to flood Catholic schools.
But the Church will come to regret it if it comes to pass. Even this kind of indirect state subsidy will be enough of a hook that brings about state and eventually Federal control of Catholic schools.
Already, Catholic schools in St. Louis that administered various Federally-funded summer education programs had to cover up their religious statues and artwork in the schools where they held those programs.
Missouri Man Gets 14 Years for Al-Qaida Support
A Kansas City businessman who swore an oath of allegiance to al-Qaida and three years ago pleaded guilty to providing financial support to the international terror group was sentenced Monday to 14 years in prison, despite a plea from his attorney for lenience because of the risk he took by becoming an informant against the organization.
Khalid Ouazzani, 35, who pleaded guilty in May 2010 to bank fraud, money laundering and conspiracy to support a terrorist group, was sentenced in federal court in Kansas City.
Federal prosecutors claimed Ouazzani provided more than $23,000 to al-Qaida and had pledged more, with the hope of eventually traveling to the Middle East to join the fight against the U.S.
In his guilty plea, Ouazzani admitted making false claims to borrow money for a used auto parts business and wiring the proceeds to a bank in Dubai. That money was used to purchase an apartment in Dubai that later sold for a $17,000 profit, which was given to al-Qaida. Ouazzani also admitted sending the terror group $6,500 from the sale of his business.
Ouazzani, a married father of two who became a U.S. citizen in June 2006, admitted in his plea bargain to bank fraud, money laundering and conspiracy to support a terrorist group after admitting he gave money and swore an oath of allegiance to the terror network in 2008.
“Missouri man.” Not me.
Really, I would have been fine with him leaving America. I am steaming about him ever being allowed to come to America to begin with and attain citizenship.
The turbaned gunmen who infiltrated Nairobi’s Westgate mall arrived with a set of religious trivia questions: As terrified civilians hid in toilet stalls, behind mannequins, in ventilation shafts and underneath food court tables, the assailants began a high-stakes game of 20 Questions to separate Muslims from those they consider infidels.
A 14-year-old boy saved himself by jumping off the mall’s roof, after learning from friends inside that they were quizzed on names of the Prophet Muhammad’s relatives. A Jewish man scribbled a Quranic scripture on his hand to memorize, after hearing the terrorists were asking captives to recite specific verses. Numerous survivors described how the attackers from al-Shabab, a Somali cell which recently joined al-Qaida, shot people who failed to provide the correct answers.
Their chilling accounts, combined with internal al-Shabab documents discovered earlier this year by The Associated Press, mark the final notch in a transformation within the global terror network, which began to rethink its approach after its setbacks in Iraq. Al-Qaida has since realized that the indiscriminate killing of Muslims is a strategic liability, and hopes instead to create a schism between Muslims and everyone else, whom they consider “kuffar,” or apostates.

Pope Francis has philosophy as one of his many college degrees. So I know he knows what a moral contradiction is.
So why would he engage in one, like this?
Pope Francis urged countries on Tuesday to welcome and respect migrants and refugees and not treat them as “pawns on the chessboard of humanity”.
Francis, who has made the defense of the poor and vulnerable a cornerstone of his papacy, said in a message for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees that there should be a change in attitude on the part of host countries.
“Migrants and refugees are not pawns on the chessboard of humanity,” he said in the message, which is sent to government and international institutions such as the United Nations.
“They are children, women and men who leave or who are forced to leave their homes for various reasons, who share a legitimate desire for knowing and having, but above all for being more.”
He also repeated his condemnation of “slave labor” and trafficking, developing his criticism of a “throwaway culture”.
I know most of you reading these words get it, even though the low IQ low information undertow doesn’t.
What does this mean? There are somehow enough Muslims in Springfield or somewhere in Greene County such that there are at least six Muslim inmates in the county can.
Irresistible Force vs Immovable Object is about to be solved. But I don’t think it’s going to be pretty.

You know, the irony of this is that the militant atheist community is in terms of ethnicity (but definitely not religion) heavily Jewish.
Lawmakers battle over push to create military ‘chaplain’ for atheists
Members of Congress are set to square off over a push to create military chaplains for people who do not believe in God.
Pardon me, but the very concept of atheist clergy makes as much sense as wings on a turtle. The prefix “a-” in “atheism” means “the absence of,” and indeed, atheists have faith in the fact that there is no supernatural power or extranatural source of spirituality. The absence of God implies that there should also be an absence of clergy and also chaplains.

The Middle East beats the West in female tech founders
CONFERENCES on start-ups, the old joke goes, are the only events where there is never a queue for the ladies’ room. Only 10% of internet entrepreneurs across the world are women, according to Startup Compass, a firm that tracks such things.
Except in Amman and other Middle Eastern cities, it seems. There, the share of women entrepreneurs is said to average 35%—an estimate seemingly confirmed by the mix of the sexes at “Mix‘n’Mentor”, a recent gathering in the Jordanian capital organised by Wamda, an online publication for start-ups.
Reasons abound, and they are not always positive, says Nina Curley, Wamda’s editor. Although more than half of university graduates in many Middle Eastern countries (51% in Jordan) are women, the workforce is dominated by men (women provide only 21% of it overall, and a paltry 16% in Jordan). The internet, however, is a new space that is more meritocratic and not as heavily male. The technology also lets entrepreneurs work from home, making it easier to raise children.
Here’s perhaps one more of those abounding reasons: Too many men in the ME think they know everything they’ll ever need to know once they finish reading two books: The Koran, and Bomb-Building for Dummies.
Insight: Nigeria Islamists hit schools to destroy Western ideas
They crept up to the school under cover of darkness, armed with petrol and automatic weapons.
Most of the teachers and pupils had fled, but some students, one teacher and headmaster Adanu Haruna were still in the compound, one of many rural boarding schools in Nigeria surrounded by forest and farmland.
“They made the students line up and strip naked, then they made the ones with pubic hair lie face down on the ground,” Haruna said, eyes wide with horror at describing the attack on the iron-roofed school built by British colonizers in the 1950s.
“They shot them point blank then set the bodies on fire.”
Okay, which Imam put out a fatwa against pubes?
Voltaire once said that you can tell who rules you on account of who you’re not allowed to criticize. I guess he would also agree that you can tell who the protected classes are for whom the black hat crowd isn’t spying on.
Nixon vetoes ‘Sharia Law’ bill, saying it would endanger foreign adoptions
Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed on Monday an anti-“Sharia Law” bill, saying that in its zeal to address an imaginary problem, the legislation creates a real one for parents seeking foreign adoptions.
The bill would make it illegal for Missouri to enforce any foreign law or legal decision deemed “repugnant or inconsistent” with Missouri or U.S. law. It doesn’t specify Islamist Sharia religious law, but it’s part of a movement by conservative lawmakers in more than 20 states who have pushed similar measures to highlight alleged Sharia influences in the U.S.
“There are certainly problems facing our state and nation, but this isn’t one of them,” said Nixon, speaking to families at Lutheran Family and Children’s Services, a major adoption proponent. The bill, he said, could muck up the works for families attempting to adopt through foreign governments: “The laws passed in Jefferson City have real consequences. This bill could jeopardize a family’s ability to adopt children from other countries.”
The bill would have prevented Shari’ah Law and made it harder for Missourians to adopt foreign non-white cuckoo birds?
Too bad I don’t know how to forge Jay Nixon’s signature.
BTW, when did pro-aborticide Democrat politicians all of a sudden get worried about adoption?
And also…I suppose he’ll be changing his name soon to Jabir Nayaz al-Jefferson City.

Bosnian-St. Louisans battling County Hall over a new mosque/community center development the former want to build near the old Grandpa’s on Lemay Ferry.
The group was already worshipping at a mosque in south St. Louis. But with many area Bosnians moving from the city to south St. Louis County, the Islamic Community Center’s religious leader, Imam Muhamed Hasic, decided the center should have a presence in the county.
That’s something I’ve been predicting ever since our Yankee government moved the Bosnians here after we oppressed Serbia. They were largely settled in and around the Bevo neighborhood of South City, (and thank goodness for that, because they prevented the Africanization of that general part of South City, which probably would have happened but for the Bosnians). But as they stayed awhile, had kids, and discovered that the St. Louis City Public Schools are mostly black and crummy, they would gradually migrate to South County.
I’m also guessing the “mosque in south St. Louis” was that place on South Kingshighway with that minaret visible from the DOR drivers license office.
Get ready to hear these two refrains over and over again from Official America or parts thereof:
1. We need “comprehensive immigration reform” in order to prevent, deter and crack down on terrorism. The Gang Bangers of Eight bill will actually help us do that, bring terrorists that are already out of the shadows out of the shadows. Only ignorant rubes think otherwise.
2. The (real) Russians (“and not Islam”) are actually responsible for the Boston Massacre, therefore we need to admit all of Russia’s neighbors but not Russia itself into NATO, and cooperate with them all except for Russia on a nuclear missile defense shield.

UPDATE 4 PM
Yet such freakouts are nothing compared to what is in store if the the Marathon bombing means that Chechen jihadis has come to U.S. shores. The Chechens mounted one of the most vicious terror campaigns ever against Russia in the 1990s, blowing up apartment buildings, and launching massive attacks on theaters and even schools. They are known as among the most violent and dedicated terrorists in the world. They can be found fighting in Libya, Syria and every other major jihadi campaign. Though usually they have to sneak into the target countries, rather than coming on a visa as the Boston bombers apparently did.)
Russia only succeeded in suprresing the Chechen Islamists with extremely brutal tactics that would never find support in the U.S – essentially leveling the Chechen capital. Yet dealing with such a threat would also be impossible with a politically correct approach to counter-terror that, for example, turns away from talking frankly about the terrorists profiles and motives.
Moral of the story? We can have freedom or we can have open borders, but we can’t have both.
Tamerlan says he doesn’t usually take his shirt off so girls don’t get bad ideas: “I’m very religious.”
Tamerlan says he doesn’t drink or smoke anymore: “God said no alcohol.” A Muslim, he says: “There are no values anymore,” and worries that “people can’t control themselves.”
We also know he’s on the lam driving a car with one of those noxious “Coexist” bumper stickers. Why does it seem that belligerent people who can’t get along with anyone have those “Coexist” bumper stickers?
What a righteous life he lead. Except for the whole part about NOT KILLING PEOPLE~!1
It’s too bad we’re back to winter around here, and it’s also too bad that I gave up drinking and never started smoking. Otherwise, I’d spend all weekend with no shirt on while drinking and smoking, all the while not killing anyone. It’s my way of sticking it to Allah.

Re this contretemps between Bill O’Reilly and Laura Ingraham about the former’s use of the pejorative phrase “Bible thumper.”

White man, ethnic Italian. Yes, he’s from a South American country, but no, he is not a liberation theologist. The online encyclopedia of questionable credibility claims he toyed with LT in his younger years but quickly distanced himself from it.
Considering the overtly non-white alternatives, I’ll take it.
His Papal name seems to be derived from St. Francis of Assisi. (UPDATE: Or, maybe from Francis Xavier.) I would also imagine that in his home country and throughout the Spanish speaking world, he will be known as Francisco I.
What amazes me is the media — Somehow, they have it all figured out, that a white man who is an ethnic Italian who was just elevated to Pope is instantly going to make all the poor brown and tan Indos and Mezos of Latin America rich simply because he himself is from Buenos Aires.
I wonder what Obama was thinking as he watched this. “Look at all those bitter clingers in St. Peter’s Square. Yeah, you might be Pope, but I’m still the Messiah, beyotch.”
One more thing: Now that the Cardinals have chosen the new Pope, they can now get back to Spring Training.
The text is relevant, but the P-D chooses a really odd picture for the story. Just in case they realize their “error” and change it, I have saved a screenshot of it at the top half of that link above (click to enlarge):
Of course, Dolan is a native St. Louisan (who is considered a long shot candidate for Pope), and Carlson, while not a St. Louis native, is our current Archbishop. (Fancy being Archbishop of a city noted for its Arch.)
This means an authority much higher than the U.S. Senate seems to be on board with naming the new bridge for Stan Musial.
