The idiocy of the Hillbuzz bots is so legendary that I need a new series.

Also, speaking of weird logos, check out Jane Dyer’s. She appears to be running for something in a Carolina using a logo that’s a suspiciously-Islamic (or communist) crescent over a palm tree? It’s aesthetically awful, and symbolically questionable.
Err here is the flag for South Carolina
Err here is the Communist Party of the USA logo
Oops. Stupid buzzard.
While Fox News continues to promote the hard right group, Stop Islamification of America, promoting its President, lunatic extremist blogger, Pamela Geller as a Human Rights Activist, the City of Bradford in the UK turned their back on these racist thugs and refused to rise to their bait.
This is the message from the Hope Not Hate campaign
There was widespread relief across Bradford last night after the EDL protest passed off without major incident. Despite huge provocation from the racist hooligans the Muslim community in particular refused to rise to the bait.
But as I mention in my summary of the day last night, there was a far bigger victory in that Bradford is now able to move out of the shadow cast by the 2001 riots. The opposition to the EDL was almost universal across the city and has fostered a new and positive community spirit.
This was shown brilliantly last night. A huge police presence remained in the city in case of trouble, with most officers based in vans at the police HQ in the city centre. Late in the evening several Asian families arrived at the police station to thank the assembled officers for their hard work during the day. They then presented them with large trays of food, curries and samosas, which was gladly accepted by the police.
Bradford has rejected the racism and hatred of the EDL and is moving forward together as one people.
Three cheers to the people of Bradford for rejecting the message of hate offered by the EDL/SIOE.
A message to my American cousins, you too can stand up against the fascists and WIN.
Group behind the “Mega Mosque” smear for the Park51 development is banned from marching in the Bradford.
This is a victory for the community over fascism.
The sister group of the Stop Islamification of America organisation, who were the first to stir America in to a rage against the Islamic Community Centre in New York have been banned from holding an Anti Islamic demonstration on Bradford, England.
The Group, SIOE, or otherwise known as the English Defence League have held a number of demonstrations against Islamic sites in the UK, each one of their demonstrations have become increasingly violent.
The group were planning to demonstrate in Bradford, an area known for its Muslim population. A previous demonstration by related racist groups in Bradford resulted in a riot.
The Home Secretary, Theresa May has now imposed a blanket ban on marches in Bradford to be held on 28 August.
Unite Against Fascism had also planned a counter protest.
Although the marches have been banned, a static demonstration can still be held.
Local residents had submitted a 10,000 strong petition calling on the Home Office to ban the march.
Unite Against Fascism made the following statement:
The racist English Defence League will bring their message of hate to Bradford on Saturday 28 August, despite a ban on all marches by the Home Office.
The EDL will hold a “static demonstration”, that is not covered by this ban.
Most previous EDL rallies have been static demonstrations of this sort, with the EDL’s thugs being escorted en masse to their rally point by the police. In Luton, Stoke and Dudley these demonstrations have led to the EDL rioting and lashing out at the Asian population.
The EDL are racist thugs, with links to the British National Party and other fascist groups.
Unite Against Fascism is backing the “We Are Bradford” event in the city centre on 28 August, which aims to bring together Bradford’s communities in a peaceful show of anti-racist unity against EDL thuggery.
Backed by MPs, unions, faith groups
The event has also been supported by MPs – including Bradford East MP David Ward – trade unions, faith and community groups from Bradford and beyond (see list on the home page).
UAF joint secretary Weyman Bennett said:
It is vital that anti-racists in Bradford and beyond stand shoulder to shoulder with the city’s Muslim population – the main targets of the EDL’s racism.
The We are Bradford event is an opportunity for a peaceful, united and multicultural event to act as a focus for everyone who wants to express their opposition to the racism and violence of the EDL
The Group, Hope Note Hate, whose campaign, The Bradford Together initiative, collected the 10,700 signatures from within the city will be holding a peace vigil on the eve of the static protest.
This is to safely provide local residents with the opportunity to show opposition to the EDL/SIOE and celebrate modern Bradford without fear of a confrontation. This event is being supported by the Bradford Council of Mosques, other faith and community groups and Yorkshire & Humber TUC.
The message from community leaders is clear. Stay away from the town centre on the Saturday and do not give the fascists any opportunity to start trouble.
The chairman of Bradford Council of Mosques has given his full support to the vigil and he urged the Muslim community to stay away from the city centre on the day (of the planned EDL / SIOE riot) and not rise to the EDL provocation. He felt the city was in a much better place to where it was in 2001 and that the weeks of work that Bradford Together had put in had been pivotal in this.
(1) Target big Democrat donors, and horrify them at the thought they will be identified as supporters of this Ground Zero Victory Mosque because their funds are enabling the mosque-supporters like Pelosi and Obama to remain in office. These big donors do not want their names or businesses hurt by association with this project. So, get them, as private citizens and Democrat financiers, on record against this…then pressure them for an answer on the question of why they are giving so much damn money to people like Pelosi and Obama (and Senators Gillibrand and Schumer), who want to see a monument to Islamic Conquest rise above Ground Zero. Democrats ignore the people, but they bow to donors.
(2) Target all construction companies licensed to operate in New York and make it known to their C-Suite executives that if they agree to build this Ground Zero Victory Mosque that for the rest of your life you will make it a hobby of yours to convice future clients from hiring this firm. Make it known in the construction industry that any company that accepts this project will have the perpetual scorn of the public brought down on it. Think about what Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Henry Gates, and the rest of the Race Industry does to corporations to scare them away from doing things the Race Industry does not want them to do. Those tactics are very effective, and as disgusting as these race hucksters are, you cannot argue with their results.
(3) Pre-emptively start a rebellion with the trade unions and other entities that must be present on a construction site for a building project of this nature to proceed. In Chicago, buildings cannot be built without certain guilds and craftsman reps present on the job. It’s largely a corruption and graft requirement, and we can’t imagine New York not having something like this too, forcing a project to employ all sorts of experts to do certain things that are written into city building codes. Ie, pipefitters from the proper pipefitting union must fit the pipes for the sprinklers. If that does not happen, the Fire Marshal will not allow the building to rise, because it is unsafe. Well, what if the pipefitters in New York who are authorized by the state to work on building projects all refuse to work on this job? What if the Fire Marshal refuses to sign off on the building? There can be no Victory Mosque unless all the various trade unions and guilds allow this building to be constructed.
(4) Send an SOS to organized crime in the New York/New Jersey area. This might sound absurd to you at first, but the crime families in major cities are actually very patriotic people. They are almost always in it for themselves, of course, but they are no fans of Islam. How can the Victory Mosque be built if all the supplies that are needed for the building site mysteriously fall off ships at the docks or are lost on the highway somewhere coming into the city? What about late at night when all of the bulldozers, cranes, and other machines needed suffer all sorts of bizarre mechanical problems. We hear there are a lot of raccoons and squirrels living in lower Manhattan that love messing around with machinery at night. And those machines all need to be certified as safe, for the crews to work, and having machines that constantly break down sure would seem to risk any safety certifications the project would have. The mob in this country might generally do a lot of bad things, but we have a sincere and honest hope the crime families of the tri-state area come together to do whatever they can behind the scenes to stop construction of this Victory Mosque if it would ever get that far.
(5) The gay bar idea adjacent to the mosque is just one concept for making the neighborhood wholly unappealling to the Islamists who want to built this Tower of Triumph over Ground Zero. Pork processing facilities, museusms of pork products through the years, and anything else pig related needs to go in the three block radius circling this Victory Mosque. We’ve suggested commissioning public art, like the fiberglass cows that are dotted around Chicago, but in pig form, to decorate the streets surrounding the Victory Mosque. If the city won’t approve that, then local graffiti artists should be employed by the mob to absolutely cover every available surface in the area with depictions of pigs…and portraits of Muhammad as portrayed by the character Sloth from The Goonies. Every artistic endeavor imaginable should be used to make this would-be triumphant Victory Mosque into an laughstock. Do not allow these Muslims to use this Victory Mosque as a propaganda and recruiting tool overseas. Let there be no angle in which it can be photographed without there being a giant pig sculpture or deformed depiction of Muhammad spoiling that shot.
It is now come to this. The wiser heads inside of the Republican Party need to reclaim their Party from the tea party types and the desperate wannabe media whores, using hate as a vehicle for self promotion.
For this, only the former President, George W Bush can lead on this.
I will always believe that that man caused great, untold levels of damage not just to America but the World. It therefore has come to something when I am hoping that he will do one decent thing on behalf of America and indeed, his Party.
President Obama has already spoken up on behalf of American Muslims who simply want to exercise their Constitutional right to worship. It is now time for the former President to do the same. His Party is on the brink of sending an awful message to all Muslims that America does not want them. This is on the back of a message to legal Latinos that America has no place for them either.
With talk of abolishing the right of citizenship for some, the Republican Party is not far away for expressing its desire for a WASP ONLY America. Republican Leaders are after all going to be sharing a platform with a Dutch politician who wants the Constitution of the Netherlands changed to reflect just that.
As President, Bush repeatedly made clear that the US was not at war with Islam. He repeatedly pointed out the contributions made by Muslims to the World and pointed out that radical terrorists had nothing to do with the three Abrahamic Religions, of which Islam is one.
The current crop of Republicans will never respect President Obama when he repeats those very same points. After all, with the insanity turned up to 11, Republican Leaders have been all too happy to push the meme that President Obama is a “Muslim sympathiser”; so to the crazies he would say that anyway.
Former President Bush need only to restate what he said as President on many many occasions. Such a statement may wake some of the few remaining wise heads in the Republican Leadership up. It may give them the early morning call they need before they are far too far down a road no decent politician should ever have ventured on.
Republicans are getting on board with European Fascist Groups. Republican candidates will be sharing a platform with those on the very hard right of European politics.
It is a disgrace that this is not being called out.
People have every right to protest, people have every right to voice disquiet, the democracy of the United States of America was not completely destroyed by Bush and despite what the tea party people scream, (while still exercising their democratic right to protest), President Barack Obama is not ending democracy either.
Those running for office, should however be very wary with whom they share a platform. You would hope that no-one from mainstream politics or even those who report politics would share a platform with people from Stormfront. You would hope nobody from a mainstream political party would share a platform with white supremacists. Those few who would dare do so, you would at least trust that they are there to rubbish and oppose the views of such people. Actually giving succour and support to these people – no way.
We would at least expect that never, ever again would serious politicians allow openly fascist politicians an unchallenged platform.
Yet, for cheap, tacky votes from the very base elements of society, Newt Gingrich, John Bolton and Republican candidates for elected office are ging to join far right extremist Pamela Geller and ultra right extremist Geert Wilders on a platform to oppose the building of Corboda House.
Pamela Geller, an Anti-Muslim extremist, who calls Liberal Jews “jewicidal” is on its own bad enough. She also called Jane Ramsey a disgrace to the Jewish religion for having, in her bigoted eyes, the temerity to attend the Presidential Ramadan dinner. She has helped set up the American arm of the “Stop Islamification of America” movement, whose UK demonstrations have been full of highly delightful people.
In the UK, politicians and religious leaders know exactly who they are. Their hate draws the community together. Harrow, by the way is a middle to upper middle class area, with a diverse population of Jewish, Islamic and Catholic residents in North West London, England.
This is from the SIOE website, whose American cousin Ms Geller is President of. She of course would never support such opinions, she would just import them in to America.
Blogs are very important and bring much needed information to the general public; information which is often suppressed by Western mainstream media.
In fact, blogs are essential. However, when islamists and jihadists (in other words muslims) are prepared to blow up trains and buses and willing to fly airplanes into skyscrapers, then blogs alone will not defeat the theocratic despotism that is hell-bent on destroying Western civilisation.
The very least we have to do is be in the faces of our own political, judicial and religious leaders voicing our anger at how they are not only allowing, but actively promoting, the Islamisation of Europe.
Already, people in Europe consider that the legal and peaceful means of stopping Islamisation, used by SIOE, are not enough. In Europe, for example, violence, including shootings, against muslims is happening increasingly.
SIOE is not surprised at this. When even the legitimate means of protest against islam are sometimes prevented, or at least restricted, and such protests go largely unreported, then it is inevitable that people who feel powerless under the law, take the law into their own hands.
The people who are to blame for citizens reacting in a violent manner against Islamism are the people in whom the ordinary citizens have placed their faith and trust, namely, our politicians, judiciary and religious leaders.
It is quite telling that they called the Synagogue leaders of Harrow appeasers for opposing the SIOE / EDL demonstration of hate against Muslims, “appeasers”.
Nice people to do business with.
This is what a former Home Office Minister said of them
No mainstream UK politician would ever be seen agreeing with people like them, especially at a protest against Muslim residents. Yet a major Political Party, that is close to the reins of power is happy to import hate from European fascists.
Pamela Geller however, as a result of your not so Liberal media (as if Fox is Liberal), has become an acceptable face of hate. She is however just a talking head, a bigoted, disgusting talking head and an overpromoted blogger but importantly, she is and will never be more than a bigoted talking head.
Geller is using her position as talking head to promote her hatefest at which Republicans will be appearing
Geert Wilders will also be there.
An unapologetic extremist.
He is not just a talking head but an elected politician selling hate and fear. Promoting a culture of fascism in a continent that has already suffered from its real evils. He causes and provokes outrage to further himself and his agenda of hate at the ballot box.
No decent respectable politician should be even on a stand with him.
Replacement of the present Article 1 of the Dutch constitution, guaranteeing equality under the law, by a clause stating the cultural dominance of the Christian, Jewish and
introduction of administrative detention for “terrorist suspects”
A five-year moratorium on the founding of new mosques and Islamic schools;
a permanent ban on preaching in any language other than Dutch
In a letter to the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant, he called for the Koran to be banned in the Netherlands and compared it to Mein Kampf.
He has called for a €1000 ( a year ($1500) excise tax on wearing headscarves, a ban on all Muslims immigrating to the Netherlands and wants the government to pay for Muslims who are already in the Netherlands to leave.
Despite all this he calls himself a libertarian.
This man and his Political Party thrives on creating tensions within the Dutch community.
If his comments about Muslims were repeated in the same vein against any other religion, such as Christians, Hindus or Jews, he would be a pariah, yet because Republicans have decided to make Muslims an enemy, he gets to share a platform with them.
This should quite rightly be an outrage.
These people should be ashamed and shamed for their participation in fostering fear and hate:-
“Ambassador” John Bolton
NY Senatorial Candidate Gary Berntsen
Jordan Sekulow (ACLJ)
Pete King (invited)
Michael Grimm Staten Island House of Representatives
Of course, without any surprise the popular purveyor of racism, Andrew Breitbart will be in attendance.
If Republican Leadership will not, it is the duty of the Democratic Party to call these high-profile Republicans out for standing with fascists and thugs.
All decent politicians should look to history and say never again.
Screw the right wing thugs being wheeled out as talking heads on tv objecting to Cordoba House as a “Ground Zero Mosque”. And especially screw that ignoramus Larry Johnson, whose “security knowledge” CNN draws on all so often has to be questioned when he asks a question so stupid it could have come from Life of Brian.
Nice to see that in his desire to extract $$$s from wingnuts he has back a poster he had previously banned, who admitted she was interviewed by the Secret Service for making death threats against the President - doing pretty much the same again – making very similar comments about the same President.
Let’s get some basics. For a start it is not a mosque and it is not on “Ground Zero”.
Here is the map of where it is:-
NOT ON GROUND ZERO.
So because the President said this:-
Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality … a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country
Right wingers want to go all John Cleese on Muslims.
So just to play along with you right wing screw ups what did the Muslims ever do for America?
Well here are just some examples.
See this: -
The Sears Tower / Willis Tower
The Hancock Tower
The structural designer was this man
Fazlur Rahman Khan (Bengali: ফজলুর রহমান খান Fozlur Rôhman Khan) (April 3, 1929 – March 27, 1982), born in Dhaka, Bangladesh (erstwhile Bengal Presidency of British India), was a Bangladeshi-American architect and structural engineer. He is a central figure behind the “Second Chicago School” of architecture and is regarded as the “father of tubular design for high-rises”. Khan, “more than any other individual, ushered in a renaissance in skyscraper construction during the second half of the twentieth century.” He is also considered to be the “Einstein of structural engineering” and “the greatest structural engineer of the second half of the 20th century” for his innovative use of structural systems that remain fundamental to modern skyscraper construction. His most famous buildings are the John Hancock Center and the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), which was the world’s tallest building for several decades.
This is a brain tumour.
Until this man,
Ayub Onmaya, treatment was difficult and prone to infection. In fact, without him, many would be dead.
Ayub’s invention, the Ommaya reservoir, was the first subcutaneous reservoir that allowed for repeated intrathecal injections. Before his invention patients had to suffer repeated lumbar punctures for intrathecal drug administration. Spinal angiography was pioneered by Ommaya, Di Chiro, and Doppman. This work allowed for the visualization of arteries and veins and allowed for understanding of spinal cord arteriography. The same team reported the treatment of spinal cord AVMs by percutaneous embolization of an intercostal artery using stainless steel pellets. This was one of the first reports of interventional neuroradiology.
Ayub’s models and work in traumatic injury were foundational to the biomechanics of traumatic brain injury. This work allowed for improved modeling of brain injury by engineers in their design of safety equipment in automobiles. Ayub also published the first coma score for classification of traumatic brain injury. The most widely used contemporary classification systems follow the Ommaya approach. Ayub’s friendship with Congressman Lehman, then chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, lead to the creation of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control.Each of these efforts involved collaborators who were vital to their successful conclusion.
Ayub worked with Sir Godfrey Hounsfield to determine the spatial resolution of the CT scanner which opened the door for its use in stereotactic surgery. Ayub also invented the first spinal fluid driven artificial organ.
The work of Di Chiro, Doppman, and Ommaya, and was critical to the development of spinal angiography. The visualization of arteries and veins allowed for understanding of the pathophysiology of spinal AVMs in addition to classification of lesions. Di Chiro, Ommaya, and Doppman also reported one of the earliest interventional radiology approaches using stainless steel pellets to treat a spinal cord AVM. 6 This percutaneous embolization approach was noted as less traumatic than surgical treatment by the authors and represented another step forward in pecutaneous vascular embolization as an addition the surgical armamentarium for treating certain vascular disorders of the central nervous system.
Before Ommaya’s work CSF rhinorrhea was classified as traumatic and spontaneous. The second category was essentially a waste basket which did not assist in guiding treatment approaches.14,18 Ommaya classified non traumatic rhinorrhea as resulting from high pressure leaks (tumors & hydrocephalis) and normal leaks (congenital abnormalities, focal atrophy, oysteomyelitic). Nontraumatic rhinorrhea is a challenge in diagnosis and choice of surgical approach. Of importance to successful surgical outcome is the demonstration of fistula. Among the non traumatic group, CSF rhinorrhea occurring with primary empty sella (PES) was first reported by Ommaya.31
Biomechanics of Traumatic Brain Injury
Ommaya’s cetripedal theory identified that the effects always begin at the surface of the brain in mild injury and extend inward to affect the diencephalic- mesencephalic core in more severe injury.20 His work showed that both translational and rotational acceleration produce focal lesions but that only rotational acceleration produced diffuse axonal injury. When damage is found in the rostral brainstem it is also associated with diffuse hemispheric damage. Prior to his work it was believed that that the mechanism of consciousness was linked to primary brainstem injury. However, the brainstem and mesencephalon are the last structure to be affected in severe injury, and rotational rather than translational forces produce concussion. Contact phenomenon contribute to the development of focal lesions, e.g. frontal and temporal lesions due to contact with the sphenoid bone.18 Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies have supported these theories. They have confirmed that the distribution of lesions follows a centripetal pattern that follows injury severity identified by the Glascow Coma Score.
Ayub Ommaya first reported the Ommaya reservoir in 1963. The reservoir is subcutaneous implant for repeated intrathecal injections, to treat hydrocephalus and malignant tumors. The reservoir was the first medical port to use silicone which is biologically inert and self sealing. The Ommaya reservoir allows delivery of intermittent bolus injections for chemotherapy to the tumor bed. Agents are injected percutaneously into the reservoir and delivered to the tumor by compression of the reservoir. The Ommaya reservoir provided a great improvement for treatment which reduces the risk of infection.
Creation of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control
While the Chief Medical Advisor for the Department of Transportation in the 1980s, Ayub commissioned a report, Injury in America, from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in 1985. This report and efforts by Congressman William Lehman and Dr. Ommaya lead to the creation of the Center for Disease Control’s, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control which began to provide synthesis, direction, and funding for the field. Congressman William Lehman and Ayub became friends when he cared for his daughter. They had many discussions focusing on the need for a center that emphasized injury prevention and research. Congressman Lehman, then chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, was responsible for the initial $10 million awarded to the CDC to establish a new Center for Injury Control. 2 The FY 2008 budget for the center is $134 Million, and it funds basic and applied injury research. Ayub served on the National Advisory Committee for the Center for 15 years.
Spinal Fluid Driven Artificial Organ
Ayub has two children who suffer from Type 1 diabetes. Motivated by his personal experience with the disease, Ayub focused on the problem of transplantation of islet cells for the treatment of diabetes. A major challenge facing survival of islet cells is immune rejection. Ayub thought that the CSF would provided an ideal setting for transplanted islets due to the immune protection provided by the blood brain barrier. He developed an artificial organ which would house transplanted islets, and the cells could be nourished by the CSF. Ayub, Illani Atwater, and colleagues identified that ventricular-peritoneal CSF shunts provided an immune protected site for the transplantation of mouse and rat islets in dogs and llamas.22, 30 Ayub and colleagues also identified that CSF glucose mirrors blood glucose. Islets cells were able to survive in this system and function in the llama model, but further work on the model is needed.1 Unfortunately Ayub was not able to complete this research.
The role of emotions in consciousness
Ayub focused much of his career on the study of consciousness, the brain, and mind. This interest derived from his reading of Pennfield’s work on surgical treatment of epilepsy. His work in traumatic brain injury was influenced by his interest in how consciousness is altered and how it recovers after traumatic injury. Key to his observations is the role of the limbic system and emotion as foundational for consciousness.29 In his view, emotion is the trigger to action and other aspects of rationality are tools to justify action. Ayub saw consciousness as an emergent property of the evolution of neural structures. Consciousness is the result of evolutionary forces directed to improving the efficiency of mental function. The reintegration of thought and action after traumatic injury provided the experimental context for Ayub’s thoughts.
It is popularly assumed that emotion disrupts cognition. However neurophysiology and Ayub’s TBI research emphasizes its fundamental inseparability. Ayub defined four steps in the evolution of consciousness. 1) reflex and avoidance reactions; 2) sensory inputs merged with multisensory neurons in the mesencephalon; 3) interactions formed between sensory and limbic systems and memory; and 4) reinforcement of thalamic neural centers which relays information between sensory and motor centers. Ayub discussed how the limbic system and emotion motivates action and focuses attention.
Not a bad list of achievements for someone the likes off Palin and that disgraceful lizard
would condemn for his religion alone.
See this woman?
She is not in a veil or burka but she is a Muslim and a very high ranking diplomat for the United States of America, who served under George Bush and Barack Obama
Farah Pandith (Urdu: فرح پنڈ ت) (born on January 13, 1968 in Srinagar, Kashmir) is the first ever Special Representative to Muslim Communities for the United States Department of State. She was appointed to this position on June 23, 2009 by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and sworn in by Secretary Clinton at a ceremony at the State Department on September 15, 2009.
Pandith is an American Muslim born in India who immigrated with her mother to Massachusetts on July 4, 1969. Prior to her current appointment, she was Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the U.S. Department of State. This role was created for the first time in U.S. history. Pandith was responsible for engaging with Muslim communities in Europe.
From 2004 to 2007 Pandith worked at the National Security Council at the White House under Elliot Abrams covering a portfolio that included “Muslim engagement,” countering violent extremism, and The Broader Middle East North Africa Initiative. She worked at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) from 2003 to 2004. She lived in Kabul, Afghanistan in the Spring of 2004. Before coming to government, Pandith was Vice President of International Business for ML Strategies, LLC, in Boston, Massachusetts. Prior to graduate school, she worked at USAID from 1990 to 1993.
Thanks to idiots like Queen of Quit and her bigoted fans she has an increasingly difficult job promoting the idea that America does not hate ALL Muslims.
I wonder if Bushies know who this man is?
Zalmay Mamozy Khalilzad (Nastaliq: زلمی خلیلزاد – Zalmay Khalīlzād) (born: 22 March 1951) is an American counselor at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and president of Khalilzad Associates, an international business consulting firm based in Washington, DC. He was the United States Ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush. He has been involved with U.S. policy makers at the White House, State Department and Pentagon since the mid-1980s, and was the highest-ranking Muslim American in the Administration of U.S. President George W. Bush. Khalilzad’s previous assignments in the Administration include U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq.
If you follow Republican logic now that must make Bush a Commie Pinko Anti Murikkkan Mooslim too.
How about this man, another W appointee.
Elias A. Zerhouni (Arabic: إلياس زرهوني) M.D. (born 12 April 1951 in Algeria) is a world renowned leader in radiology and medical research. He was the 15th director of the National Institutes of Health, appointed by George W. Bush in May 2002. He served for 6 years, stepping down in October, 2008.
Soon after becoming the Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in May 2002, Dr. Zerhouni convened a series of meetings to chart a “Roadmap for Medical Research” in the 21st century. The purpose was to identify major opportunities and gaps in biomedical research that no single Institute at NIH could tackle alone, but that the agency as a whole must address to make the biggest impact on the progress of medical research. Developed with input from meetings with more than 300 nationally recognized leaders in academia, industry, government, and the public, the NIH Roadmap provided a framework of priorities that the NIH as a whole must address in order to optimize its entire research portfolio. The NIH Roadmap identified the most compelling opportunities in three main areas: new pathways to discovery, research teams of the future, and re-engineering the clinical research enterprise. Roadmap programs were initially funded by a 1 percent contribution from each of the NIH ICs. Zerhouni subsequently created the Office of Portfolio Analysis and Strategic Initiatives (OPASI) to lead ongoing Roadmap efforts and to create the Research, Condition, and Disease Categorization Process (RCDC), an online system which reports NIH research investments.
Remember this man?
Lewis Arquette (December 14, 1935 – February 10, 2001)an American film actor, writer and producer. Bushies would have loved him for his role as JD Pickett on the Waltons. Well he was a scary Mooslim too.
These are just some examples of what Americans who happen to believe in Islam have given to America. They are just a taste of their contribution to the USA, you can of course find many more examples. These people have made significant contributions to the United States of America. The fact is you will find Muslims in the fields of politics, art, science, entertainment, health and they even serve their Country, the United States America, in the Military. They serve the Country they love, despite being hated by the right, at all levels from the boots on the ground to diplomatic intelligence.
In contrast, you will find the Right wing of America here -
spreading hate, lies and ignorance. You only need to look here to find examples of their contributions to the greater wisdom of the World.
When the American right were being taught second world war history in their youth, they did not learn anything about the horrors of the period they learnt how to modernise the NAZI tactics of spreading fear and hate.
Lunatic right-wing bloggers have started a campaign against a “mega mosque to be built on the ground zero”. There is no such plan. The bloggers on the right doing the most to spread this are doing it oly for their personal and political gain at the expense of slandering a religion and enraging Americans. It should be of no surprise that Fox News will be getting in on selling the bigotry. Fox have invited Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs and “Executive Director” of “Stop the Islamification of America” (whose equivalent group is very closely related to the Neo Nazi British National Party) to spread her lies.
Geller has already been on Sean Hannity’s radio show spreading her lies.
Here is a quote from one of the right-wing blogs spreading her lies.
Currently, Muslims are attempting to build “a Mega-Mosque” near the site of the World Trade Center — to celebrate the murder of 3,000 Americans by Muslims on 9/11/01 by installing a mosque near Ground Zero as Islam’s way of claiming victory over America. Having a mosque so near the site of Islam’s worst attack on America, where their call to prayer will echo out into the streets where thousands of people ran for their lives on the day “The Religion of Peace” decided to prove, yet again, how peaceful it really is would be beyond shameful. It’s an absolute disgrace.
Here’s how we stop it folks — and all it will take will be enough wealthy conservative, independent, and moderate private individuals in New York City to commission public works of art to line all the sidewalks in a three block radius of where that “Mega-Mosque” is supposed to be built.
A vast procession of pigs leading straight to where this Mega-Mosque is supposed to be built, so that any Muslims making a pilgrimage to this building to celebrate the murders on 9/11 will appear to join all of those giant pigs headed straight for the mosque as well.
Never mind how disgusted people should be for the suggestion that the victims of 9/11 should be modelled as pigs. People should feel disgusted that that quote is from a now mainstream Republican blog. What would the reaction be if this was written about the building of a synagogue?
Yet you have a national news network, that is syndicated in many Countries across the World helping to sell this crap.
So what is the truth?
No mosque is being proposed for Ground Zero. It is a complete and utter lie designed to spread hate.
What is actually proposed? A cultural outreach building to counter misunderstanding and fear about Islam that will have within it a mosque.
Why the Cordoba House?
In recent years the global public has shown an increased interest in Islam and the Muslim world. Many facets of Islamic life, religious, cultural and artistic, remain underrepresented and misunderstood. The Muslim community must provide an opportunity to educate individuals about Islam through education and organized experiences of art, culture and entertainment.
A need exists in New York City, America and the world to integrate Islamic education, spiritual development, the arts and culture under one roof. The Muslim community in NYC will build a world-class facility to promote tolerance, self-awareness and self-recognition within society. Both community driven and globally oriented, the center will serve as the platform to launch a broader vision of Muslim-West harmony and interdependence. The community center will satisfy the current need of a prayer space in the lower Manhattan area, making it the only prayer area opened for the five daily prayers below Houston (greater lower Manhattan).
Where is it? Not on Ground Zero.
Slandering a religion and creating the politics of fear did not work out well in the 1930′s. The difference between then and now was that the far right did not have a 24 hour news network to back them.
I really do worry about America. An election defeat should have given the right an opportunity to look at their principles and beliefs and offer something to the American people. Instead they are promoting the only beauty queen to have never called for world peace as President, one who is busy endorsing convicted war criminals for Congress. They are creating and fostering a culture of fear and hate.
Appealing to the very worst of peoples fears and bigotry should never again be acceptable. It is shameful that hate has become a mainstream Republican viewpoint.
Oh – fear fear scary stuff. Da Moslims are coming. Britain’s Liberal / Conservative Government appoints a Muslim woman to cabinet.
The Great Harpy, Pamela Geller will screech on about Muslims taking over the World and imposing Sharia Law.
The far right will get themselves so excited about this that they will soil their klan outfits.
Britain, under its Liberal Democrat / Conservative government now has a Muslim woman in the Cabinet.
Sayeeda Warsi is now Chairman of the Conservative Party, she replaces the pretty awful Eric Pickles who chaired the Party in the run up to the general election. She is a tough political fighter and will make a great Chairman.
She sits in the Cabinet as full voting Member without Portfolio, the role held in the past by people such as Norman Tebbit and Kenneth Baker.
Sayeeda Warsi was born in Dewsbury, Yorkshire in 1971 to Pakistani parents who emigrated from (Bawal) Gujar Khan, Pakistan. Her father was a mill worker. She was educated at Birkdale High School, Dewsbury College, and the University of Leeds where she read Law (LLB). She attended the York College of Law to complete her Legal Practice Course and trained with both the Crown Prosecution Service and the Home Office Immigration Department.
After qualifying as a Solicitor, she worked for John Whitfield, the last Conservative Member of Parliament for Dewsbury at Whitfield Hallam Goodall Solicitors and then set up her own specialist practice George Warsi Solicitors in Dewsbury. She has also worked overseas for the Ministry of Law in Pakistan and in Kashmir as Chairman of the Savayra Foundation, a women’s empowerment charity.
“Riverdaughter” should think really hard about this statement she made at the Reclusive leftist blog.
As for The Confluence’s PUMA presence, as I said before, the movement became fatally compromised when it was infiltrated by Republicans right about the time of the Republican convention. We are not in the least embarrassed by the PUMA activities we did last year and we still support Darragh Murphy’s activities.
Whilst MYIQ=42 is there trying to claim he opposed racism, his stupid bigotry is still up for all to see. It hardly compares to that of Darra$h Murphy though.
Ironic, given that she has quite a reasonable response to PUMA PAC hate.
RiverDaughter can not claim PUMA racism is new. It dates back to the start and continued after the General.
The recent events in Texas were shocking and saddening.
That does not excuse Darra$h Murphy stirring up her bigots for $$$s. Darra$h Murphy does not give a flying fuck about Muslim women, not does she give a flying fuck about the soldiers in Texas. All she cares about is how much money she can extract from stupid bigots. Where is the money going to you piece of white is right scum? Where are the FEC returns?
Murphy makes her racism quite clear. She does not want a Muslim family living near her. The whore of bigotry writes, “I blame Islam because I’m a woman and Islam would enslave or kill me if it could. I don’t want it anywhere near me”.
Very much like this
You would have a hard time differentiating the comments made by Darra$h Murphy from those of neo Nazi groups.
In fact the Neo Nazi British National Party is less extreme than PUMA scum.

I have a pig roasting on a spit. Prepaing to serve it to Mohammad the Rabid Pig of Islam.
I spit in the face of Islam and all Islamic males and their voluntary supporters.
I refuse all mercies to them.
Oh, and hockin’ it up in the face of Mohammad.
Come get me, barbarian freaks.
DancesWithPUMAs calls for the death of “illegal immigrants”.
DancesWithPumas 11.06.09 at 5:33 pm
I know… our wimpoidal government can’t firgure out that the way you deport 12 million criminals is one criminal at a time. Fingerprint, photograph, DNA sample, and deport. If they return, instant death. Period. The end.
For Dances, it does not concern her that
As for this post from the thick idiot “Swannie”,
Swannie 11.06.09 at 3:02 pm
I blame Islam . I again refer to the example of India and the Caste system and how Gandhi fought his indigenous culture and religion regarding the practice of the caste system which because IT WAS OPPRESSIVE to some of the people who practiced it
the idiot bigotbot just displays her complete ignorance. The Caste system was Hindu. Not Muslim. Stupid piece of trash. I guess she finds it hard to tell one Indian person from another.
I do not buy that Muslims should speak up against idiots who commit atrocities in the name of religion, any more than I as someone with a Christian background should apologise for

or even PUMA PAC. Honour killings are murder, whether called honour killings or murder, but such killings are known as crimes of passion in the West, something I would not blame on all men. Then again, I am not selling hate.
Unlike the vile creature pictured above.
