This is just so upsetting!!

Now, that it’s the holiday season and a time of buying and giving Christmas and
Chanukah gifts, a lot of people make the convenient choice of sending fruit baskets to their friends and
professional associates. But if you take this route, DON’T send a basket from
Edible Arrangements. If you do,
you are funding HAMAS abroad and Muslim community organizing, such as the group
IMAN, the Inner City
Muslim Action Network
, in the U.S.

From WeaselZippers:


Inside the embassy the State Department was profusely apologizing:

: U.S. government had nothing to do with this video & we absolutely reject its message & contents. @StateDept


President Obama:  Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths.


President Obama: We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton apologized Tuesday for a November attack by U.S. forces that left 24 Pakistani troops dead.

“I once again reiterated our deepest regrets for the tragic incident in Salala last November,” Clinton said in a statement about her call with Pakistani foreign minister Rabbani Khar.

“I offered our sincere condolences to the families of the Pakistani soldiers who lost their lives.  Foreign Minister Khar and I acknowledged the mistakes that resulted in the loss of Pakistani military lives.  We are sorry for the losses suffered by the Pakistani military.  We are committed to working closely with Pakistan and Afghanistan to prevent this from ever happening again,” Clinton said.

The Salala incident involved NATO helicopters crossing into Pakistan from Afghanistan, and engaging Pakistani troops at two border crossings while conducting operations against Afghani Taliban forces. The NATO air forces claimed that they had come under fire and were only defending Afghan troops on the ground.

Until now, the administration has declined to apologize — citing an ongoing investigation. Clinton also announced Tuesday that an agreement had been reached with Pakistan over supply routes — a longstanding source of tension between Washington and Islamabad. Those overland supply routes have been closed ever since the attack.

“Under its terms, Pakistan would allow US forces to conduct a unilateral raid inside Pakistan in search of Bin Laden, his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and the al-Qaida No3. Afterwards, both sides agreed, Pakistan would vociferously protest the incursion.”
Looks like the “sabre-rattling” before its Parliament yesterday was the “vociferous” protesting!

Here’s a little something I found over at Diversity Lane.  Pretty interesting poem…

A Modern Observation on The Anti-War Movement
Obama’s a killer;
Nobel can’t hide
He’s leading a thriller
Of an Afghanicide.
Obama’s a warrior
Who’s funding that war;
Seems that’s actually
What Democrats are for.
Obama is vicious,
As bombs rain down
On some Muslim folk
In a Muslim town.
Obama’s evaded
Bush-aimed anti-war noise,
Because it turns out
They were mostly his boys.
Obama’s in office
And boom go those bombs.
But all those protestors?
They show no more qualms.
For Obama’s in office,
And now the war’s just
A peripheral problem,
Not a matter of trust.
Obama’s supporters
Reason it out like this:
Bush started the mess
With a swing and a miss.
Obama’s just doing
What ever he can,
Except stopping the war
Which he said was his plan.
Obama’s going along
With quiet aplomb
Because Bush protestors
Cheer Nobel’s Obama-mite bomb.
Obama’s prized peace
Is a Peace Prize now past;
And golly, there goes
Another Afghani blast.
Obama seems proud
Of the record he’s made.
Two years of warfare
Is like the golf games he played.
Obama’s a killer;
The Left can’t hide
He’s accelerated the thriller
Of an Afghanicide.


Under one President and Congress, our females were NOT to be subjected to the rules of Islamic law. But since his speech in Cairo in 2009, the Obama team has sought to be more “CULTURALLY SENSITIVE“:

(American Thinker) — Recent pictures in Stars and Stripes feature female U.S. service members wearing the Islamic headscarf, also known as a hijab. These women are part of a new initiative, Female Engagement Teams, being deployed in Afghanistan.

Aside from questions about whether the safety of these women deployed into harm’s way is jeopardized by trading the helmet for the hijab, the photos invoke memories of a policy fight in Congress less than a decade ago. In 2002, the Senate overturned a DoD mandate requiring female American service members stationed in Saudi Arabia to wear the Saudi version of the burqa, known as an abaya. Similarly, in the House of Representatives, an amendment was enacted to end the “abaya” mandate. Women in Saudi Arabia (or in Afghanistan under the brutal reign of the primitive Taliban) are subject to beatings by religious police (in Saudi Arabia known as muttawa), if they expose, even inadvertently, a wrist or ankle.

The DoD “abaya” policy was defended under the guise of “cultural sensitivities,” but it morphed into being justified as necessary for “force protection,” since “cultural sensitivities” smacked of political correctness. Could anyone imagine U.S. soldiers dispatched to South Africa under Apartheid segregating black and white soldiers to comply with “cultural sensitivities”? Yet in Saudi Arabia, American servicewomen, prior to congressional intervention, were subjected to similar humiliation and coerced into conformance with an alien religious faith.

In Barack Obama’s Cairo speech in June 2009, he stated, “I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal.” Obama implied, mistakenly, that wearing of the hijab is by choice. Surely Obama, with part of his youth spent in Muslim-dominant Indonesia, knows that in strict Islamic societies, the veil or headscarf is not optional. Even in the U.S. and Canada, young Muslim women have been killed by their fathers for refusing to submit to Islamic practices, including covering their hair — their “crime” being their desire to fit in and to look like other American girls.

Back in 2001, Congress unanimously decided, with support from feminists and religious freedom advocates, that it was wrong to subject female service members to requirements of an Islamic regime that relegates women to second-class status.

Islamic reformists have fought for decades to improve the status of women.

     Richard Holbrooke was meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday when he collapsed. The diplomat was taken to George Washington University Hospital, and he underwent more than 20 hours of surgery for a tear in his aorta.

     The Special Envoy to Afghanistan was in critical condition all weekend, but a short time ago, it was announced that Holbrooke had passed away at the age of 69.

     Holbrooke has been referred to as a “towering figure in American foreign policy”. His role in our foreign policy is evident in the outpouring off well wishes that his family was receiving throughout the weekend from diplomats worldwide.

In an alarming example of how sanctuary cities can protect terrorists, a Pakistani man arrested for the Time Square bombing admitted on a city license application that he entered the U.S. illegally and authorities took no action.

That’s because he applied for the cabbie license in a state (Massachusetts) that openly protects illegal immigrants from deportation. Local law enforcement agencies throughout Massachusetts have don’t-ask-don’t-tell policies regarding illegal aliens and in this case the Boston Police Department has for years known that the terrorist, So Pir Khan, was in the country illegally.

Khan was recently arrested in an FBI terror sweep for his involvement in the Time Square bombing earlier this month. The Boston cab driver is one of three men who funneled money to the fellow Pakistani terrorist (Faisal Shahzad) who tried to blow up New York’s Time Square with a series of bombs hidden in a sports utility vehicle.

When Khan applied for a license to drive a taxi, he admitted in writing that he had come to the United States illegally in 1991. The application was submitted to Boston Police but no action was ever taken. Khan easily obtained the cabbie license and regularly drove around one of the nation’s busiest airports with few restrictions. In fact the Boston Police Hackney Division approved Khan’s license to drive a taxi 13 times since he first applied in 1997.

There’s more alarming information about Khan that was disregarded by Boston authorities. As a gas-station employee he somehow had enough cash to buy $190,000 worth of shares in Boston taxi medallions, according to one news report, that points out no red flags were raised. Khan doubled his money just a few years later when he sold the shares, but no one bothered to look into the matter.

Massachusetts is hardly alone in protecting illegal immigrants. Nationwide there are dozens of cities and counties that offer them sanctuary, mostly by protecting them from authorities and giving them taxpayer-financed public services. Among them are most California cities, Utah’s two largest municipalities (Provo and Salt Lake City), Chicago, the District of Columbia and New Haven Connecticut to name a few. They could easily be protecting terrorists.
