They never stop.
On Tuesday afternoon’s Now with Alex Wagner, MSNBC contributor and frequent fill-in hot Michael Eric Dyson placed the upcoming standoff on the debt ceiling into a new old context, provocatively telling the panel not to hold their breath for a sudden burst of reason from Republicans in Congress. While some on the panel thought the GOP would back down under pressure from the financial sector, Prof. Dyson remarked, “Never underestimate the visceral intensity or the poetic allure of negrophobia,” adding “They are completely committed to that. That’s what Obama is facing.”

The Milledgeville area plant closing will cost more than 200 jobs. (The Telegraph)
A Georgia utilities company is closing 15 coal, oil and gas plants thanks to the latest Obama EPA regulations.
Georgia Power said on Monday it plans to seek approval from Georgia regulators to retire 15 coal-, oil- and natural gas-fired power plants in the state totaling 2,061 megawatts (MW) due primarily to the high cost of meeting stricter federal environmental regulations.
Over the past few years, U.S. generating companies have announced plans to shut about 40,000 MW of older coal-fired power plants as low natural gas prices have made it uneconomic for the generators to spend millions to upgrade the plants’ emissions systems to meet the latest federal and state environmental rules.
In a press release, Georgia Power, the biggest unit of U.S. power company Southern Co, said it wanted to shut units 3 and 4 at Plant Branch in Putnam County; units 1-5 at Plant Yates in Coweta County; units 1 and 2 at Plant McManus in Glynn County; units 1-4 at Plant Kraft in Chatham County; and units 2 and 3 at Boulevard in Chatham County.
The company said it plans to file its updated Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) with Georgia’s utility regulators on Jan. 31.
Units 3-4 at Branch, units 1-5 at Yates and units 1-3 at Kraft are coal-fired units. Kraft Unit 4 and Boulevard 2 and 3 are fired by natural gas and oil. McManus units 1-2 are oil-fired.
The company said it expects to ask to retire the units, other than Kraft 1-4, by the April 16, 2015, effective date of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Mercury and Air Toxics (MATS) rule.

There was a time when a traitor in the ranks of the U.S. Army would have been in front of a firing squad within 48 hours of his apprehension.
I happened to be at Fort Meade today on other business, which included a lecture about concerns for “operational security.” When it was time to get lunch, I was advised not to leave the base, but rather to eat at the on-base Burger King, as there might be hassles getting back through the main gate because of the Bradley Manning trial:
The US soldier accused of being behind the massive WikiLeaks publication of state secrets has been awarded a 112-day reduction in any eventual sentence on the grounds that he was subjected to excessively harsh treatment in military detention.
(If that worm were locked up in Leavenworth for life, that would be excecessively mild treatment, as far as I’m concerned.)
Colonel Denise Lind, the judge presiding over Bradley Manning’s court martial, granted him the dispensation as a form of recompense for the unduly long period in which he was held on suicide watch and prevention of injury status while at the brig at Quantico marine base in Virginia where he was detained from 29 July 2010 to 20 April 2011.
(Why ”suicide watch”? Spare us the expense of hanging him.)
During that time he was held under constant surveillance, had his possessions removed from his cell and at times even his clothes, often in contravention to the professional medical [advice] of psychiatrists.
(If the Army had sought the advice of any competent psychiatrist, Bradley Manning never would have been in the Army in the first place.)
Lind’s ruling was made under Article 13 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice that protects prisoners awaiting trial from punishment on grounds that they are innocent until proven guilty. The recognition that some degree of pre-trial punishment did occur during the nine months that the soldier was held in Quantico marks a legal victory for the defence in that it supports Manning’s long-held complaint that he was singled out by the US government for excessively harsh treatment.
How the hell can the Army enforce discipline when a traitor like Bradley Manning is permitted to bring in a commie lawyer to claim that his “rights” were violated by “excessively harsh treatment”? And speaking of commie lawyers:
David Coombs, Manning’s civilian lawyer, revealed at a hearing at Fort Meade military base in Maryland what is likely to be a central pillar of the defence case at the soldier’s court martial. A full trial is scheduled to start on 6 March.
Coombs said that the defence would be calling as a witness Adrian Lamo, the hacker who alerted military authorities to Manning’s WikiLeaks activities, to give evidence about the web chat he had with Manning shortly before the soldier’s arrest in Iraq in March 2010. The content of the web chat, Coombs suggested, would be used by the defence to show that Manning selected information to leak that “could not be used to harm the US or advantage any foreign nation”.
Yeah. Let’s just take the word of a traitor who disobeyed orders, because someone who violates his oath of service can be trusted to tell the truth.
UPDATE: In case you didn’t know:
Coombs is best known for defending Army Sgt. Hasan Akbar, who was convicted and sentenced to death for a deadly 2003 attack on fellow U.S. military members in Kuwait.
Some people will probably protest: “How can you call him a ‘commie’? Coombs is a retired officer!” And your point would be?
I mean, John Kerry used to be an officer, didn’t he?
From The Other McCain: http://theothermccain.com/
Apparently Cindy Sheehan wasn’t available, so Obama went with her ideological twin, Chuck Hagel, for his bid to spit the ultimate insult at the Department of Defense. Surprisingly, someone has been found who actually approves of this disgusting nomination. Not so surprisingly, that someone is America’s worst external enemy, Iran:
Iran’s Foreign Ministry appears to be backing President Barack Obama’s pick of former Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., as secretary of defense.
Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said in an interview Tuesday that he hopes the Hagel nomination will improve relations between the United States and Tehran.
That it will, as the two governments move closer to an open alliance against both Israel and the American people.
Hagel has previously criticized discussion of a military strike by either the U.S. or Israel against Iran and spoken of the influence of the “Jewish lobby” on Congress. He also has backed efforts to bring Iran to the table for talks on future peace in Afghanistan.
After all the blood and treasure we expended, Democrats left Iraq to fall under Iranian domination. The same is evidently planned for Afghanistan.
Technically, Hagel was a Republican during his lamentable stint in the Senate. To call him a RINO would be an insult to relatively reasonable liberal Republicans like Lindsey Graham, who gasps that Hagel would be “the most antagonistic secretary of defense towards the state of Israel in our nation’s history.”
By now we know that this arrogant insult to the Armed Forces, to America, to victims of Iranian-backed terrorism, and to our allies will not cost Obama a scintilla of support from his base — not even among Jews.

The Wise Words of Churchill – It is Being Played Out Again By Those Who Will Render The USA Defense-less
THE MUNICH AGREEMENT – 1938
Excerpt of the speech given by Churchill in response to this agreement with Germany
Barrack Hussein Obama is willfully and purposely neglecting and dismantling the defense and protection of the United States of America and retreating from our enemies that he was sworn to defend this country from – the same way that politicians did in England prior to World War II and now the United States is being reduced to such a state of weakness that we may never recover. Obama is a lying tyrant and hell bent on the destruction of the United States of America. May God have mercy on us and raise up another Churchill to wake the people of this great country out of their, as Churchill put it, “Chloroformed acquiescence” and stupor administered by a state run press that Obama and his communist cronies control. It may already be too late. ZTW
…It is the most grievous consequence of what we have done and of what we have left undone in the last five years – five years of futile good intentions, five years of eager search for the line of least resistance, five years of uninterrupted retreat of British power, five years of neglect of our air defences.
Those are the features which I stand here to expose and which marked an improvident stewardship for which Great Britain and France have dearly to pay. We have been reduced in those five years from a position of security so overwhelming and so unchallengeable that we never cared to think about it. We have been reduced from a position where the very word “war” was considered one which could be used only by persons qualifying for a lunatic asylum. We have been reduced from a position of safety and power – power to do good, power to be generous to a beaten foe, power to make terms with Germany, power to give her proper redress for her grievances, power to stop her arming if we chose, power to take any step in strength or mercy or justice which we thought right – reduced in five years from a position safe and unchallenged to where we stand now.
… They should know that there has been gross neglect and deficiency in our defences; they should know that we have sustained a defeat without a war, the consequences of which will travel far with us along our road; they should know that we have passed an awful milestone in our history, when the whole equilibrium of Europe has been deranged, and that the terrible words have for the time being been pronounced against the Western democracies:
“Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting.”
And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.
We do not want to be led upon the high road to becoming a satellite of the German Nazi system of European domination. In a very few years, perhaps in a very few months, we shall be confronted with demands with which we shall no doubt be invited to comply. Those demands may affect the surrender of territory or the surrender of liberty. I foresee and foretell that the policy of submission will carry with it restrictions upon the freedom of speech and debate in Parliament, on public platforms, and discussions in the Press, for it will be said – indeed, I hear it said sometimes now – that we cannot allow the Nazi system of dictatorship to be criticised by ordinary, common English politicians. Then, with a Press under control, in part direct but more potently indirect, with every organ of public opinion doped and chloroformed into acquiescence, we shall be conducted along further stages of our journey.

Alabama Wins The National BCS Title For The Second Straight Time! The Luck of The Irish Didn’t Show Up – Tide Trounces Notre Dame – ROOOLLLL TIDE!
IN ALABAMA WE TAKE OUR FOOTBALL DAMN SERIOUS!
Here we are at the mercy of a tyrannical government which has militarized our local police departments into standing armies amongst us. They are no longer our protectors, but the stick wielded by the tyrants in office. To what degree these forces refuse to follow orders and side with the people will be welcomed with a great sigh of relief, but being charged with protecting us against the abuses of government is no longer in their charter.
In any case our weapons of resistance to the injustices being inflicted upon us are now being sought by government officials of every station. They have compiled databases of our names and addresses through every means at their disposal. They understand the ways in which they might interdict efforts and intercept our communications. They know how to do what they want to do, they are just waiting to see which methods will be the most effective and least costly to them.
Your draft notice came with pronouncements of intent to disarm you by these legislators in open forums. They have declared their hostility to the one document that gives any of them an ounce of power or authority under our system: the Constitution of the United States of America. If you are a citizen thereof and seek the protections of the rights guaranteed within that document, you have been declared an enemy of the state.
Act like it.
There are only two roles to play: 1) one who gives aid and comfort to government corruption and abuse; or 2) one who gives aid and comfort to resistance to that corrupt and abusive government.
I don’t know how more clearly to define the role of a patriot here. Will you watch as TSA becomes the new Gestapo? Will you cower before the police forces who have become the new SS troops?
In America there are somewhere close to 60 million deer hunters with high-powered rifles and optics.
It is suggested that somewhere around 6 million people have concealed carry permits.
These are millions and millions of people who have some dog in this fight. Let them bark.
In days before I have suggested a congress gather and lay out our grievances against the open violation of the Constitution, the violation of almost every personal right from the right to speak and write and the free exercise of religion; to the right to keep and bear arms; to the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures; to the right against self incrimination; to the right to fair trials, where any absolving evidence might be used; to the rights we all have that are not declared in the Bill of Rights (Ninth Amendment); to the right of any state to claim and exercise laws not specifically given to the federal government (Tenth Amendment). Is there anyone who can claim realistically, through reason, not through judicial review, that each and every right has been violated by federal law on a routine basis?
Now, the government is testing the waters for a wholesale violation of the Second Amendment, the last and only check on their abuses. It has been sworn by organization after organization that they will stand up to such efforts with the solemnity of vows to us and I see nothing happening.
They have organized no protests. They have remained their cool and seem willing to debate the issue when an absolute line needed to be drawn past which the federal government would not be wise to cross. We act as if we have already lost this last and greatest battle against the tyrants in public office.
This is not about membership in Oathkeepers, or the NRA or Gun Owners of America. This is about the ability of the people to be secure in any of their rights. Once the Second Amendment is abused to the point of all the others, the game is lost. While you might not know what that means, let me explain it to you.
They will come for your weapons and will treat you like a criminal to get them. They will make you criminals to get them. A federal government so far in debt as this one is going to need to make some drastic changes to society and they know how to do it. Consider the fact that it is now illegal to hold religious views against abortion and refuse to pay for abortions. There is no consideration to the “free exercise thereof.”
The federal government cannot allow you to have weapons when they decide to do what I strongly believe they will do, which is to crash the dollar to pay the national debt. The agreements say that all of these debts must be repaid in U.S. Dollars, it doesn’t say that the dollar has to be worth anything. When they do that and chaos ensues, there cannot be all of these weapons in the hands of people who have suddenly watched everything they ever owned or work for become worthless.
These are the finals acts of despotism rising to the surface. You see them, don’t you? Or will you review the events of the past several months and shake your head at the many opportunities you had to stop it all, but were afraid to look like a nutcase? You can think back on all of that from your bunk in the work camp, separated from your wives and children who are in similar camps miles away.
The crime you will have committed that landed all of you there? You refused to turn over that rifle your grandfather gave you the day he took you deer hunting for the first time. So, you buried it and when they questioned your family, your child at school, they let it slip that you had buried one gun somewhere.
The trouble is, by not fighting for that one right, you lost all of them for yourself and your children forever.

#1. I do believe that we have been hoaxed. Just how much, I don’t know. This post that GoldBugGal blogged about shows that there is some freak hoax and I am livid about it: RIP’ VIDEO: How Did Victoria Soto Know She Was Going To Die On Dec 10? Sandy Hook Happened Dec 14
#2. On this post of GoldBugGal’s: Woman (Attorney?) At Aurora, CO Shooting Is Same Woman (Phelps Mother) At Sandy Hook Shooting? It is quite possible that this is the same woman. And, it is totally possible that they are NOT the same people. They sure do look alike. It’s scary how much they look each-other. But, they may NOT be the same person. I don’t know.
#3. This 1991 Book Predicts School Shootings By Drugged Individuals In Order To Disarm Public. Is it possible? It is not just possible, it happens at every one of these events or supposed events. Yep, the US government is a terrorist to the max–to be feared.
#5. Why Has Fox News NOT Interviewed ONE Sandy Hook Family Member In Person? Why Only CBS, ABC, NBC Interviewing Family? I believe it is because it is a semi-fake situation. And Fox news would not be trusted to the Commies. We wont really ever see Fox reporting on this face to face, probably.
#6. I totally believe and Raised My Own Hand, that Sandy Hook Is Some Type “Set-Up”
#7. GoldBugGal posted that she believes that Sandy Hook was a ‘false flag’ set up: “Absolute Proof Sandy Hook Was Staged”, Say Youtubers. What Do You Believe? I believe something STRANGE happened and I don’t have the answers. I am puzzled and perplexed. Angered, infuriated that the ‘liberals’ would go this far in order to disarm us and leave us without a gun to defend ourselves against robbers, rapists and THEM.
#8. GoldBugGal posted: What REALLY Happened At Sandy Hook? Watch This Video And Discern For Yourself. Open that link & go through it. There are people in the video that are fictitious (as in actors) That “Medical Examiner” was a total phoney.
#9. Sandy Hook Shooting FRAUD Gene Rosen’s Audition Tape – SEES THE CASUALTY LIST 2 DAYS BEFORE RELEASE. Rosen is fake as shit in that video. It’s disgusting. Our fav Jew-hating crazy (The Incogman) really makes fun of Rosen… His website is totally monitored or I would link the moonbat. (It is very sick, to me, that so many Jewish names are involved in this hoax. I really hate leftist Jews, and they have made me hate them even more because of this. They can rot in the gutter. And F themselves. ”The synagogue of satan” for sure.)
#10. I am really surprised that so many people have just ‘let this go’. This is a total attempt to use a trumped-up situation to grab ALL of our guns. More people should have been on this subject. I believe many people were scared for fear of being labeled a ‘conspiracy nut.’ Well, its NOT a conspiracy if its the truth. Is it? You need to throw yourself out there and start being brave. We really have NOTHING to lose considering we have lost our nation.
Last, but not least… This video below made me mad as hell. Why is this idiot laughing, & then conjuring up tears? Pathetic and disturbing.
Now… We have to move on. Because Progressive monsters are on the march. They never stop until they have achieved the Communist-Jihad. If something arises that we feel we should see, I am sure that GoldBugGal will post it.
The Evil Stench of islam Floats Through France on The Smoke of Burning Cars Destroyed by The mooslim Vermin
In France, nothing says ‘Happy New Year’ like hundreds of cars burning. Burn out the old year; torch in the new. France celebrated the onset of 2013 in its uniquely pyromaniac fashion, with officials reporting that nearly 1,2001 cars were torched overnight from Dec. 31 to Jan. 1 — 209 of them in the Paris area alone.
Time World Those figures marked a 4% increase over the 1,147 autos set ablaze on the same night in 2009 — the last year for which French officials released figures on the nation’s peculiar New Year rite. This time the record for the greatest number of torchings is proudly claimed – surprise, surprise! – by the Paris suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis, which is by pure coincidence home to a large North African MUSLIM community.
The mere fact the government of Socialist President François Hollande resumed publication of the burnt-car toll also caused sparks to fly. As the debate raged over whether to publicize the nation’s flaming-auto fetish, some French observers sought explanations for the singularly antisocial custom of car toasting.
More amazing, still, is the fact that the New Year’s Eve auto roast is only part of the story. In announcing the New Year’s Eve tally on Jan. 2, Interior Minister Manuel Valls also revealed that figures provided by fire, police and insurance officials indicate that somewhere between 42,000 and 60,000 automobiles are intentionally torched in France every year.
The majority of those go up in smoke in or near the immigrant suburban housing projects located outside most French cities. Indeed, the rest of the world first took notice of France’s distinctive car-burning penchant during the three weeks of nationwide rioting in French housing projects in 2005, when 8,810 automobiles were incinerated by enraged Muslim youths. Yet, despite that riot-driven surge of car arson, year-end figures of around 43,000 for 2005 came in at around normal levels. Normal, that is, for flame-happy France.
The Trumpet Fireworks are the most traditional way to celebrate the New Year. But in certain French cities, immigrant youth burn cars. That’s right. The New Year’s Eve car burning has become so regular it is almost a tradition.
Naturally, the story has gathered a lot of media attention. But all the mainstream reports on the subject are strangely vague about one thing—who is doing the burning. Every student of journalism learns that his or her article should answer the “five Ws”: who, what, when, where and why (and sometimes “how”). Who is invariably listed first.
Why have so many journalists suddenly forgotten their basic training? Perhaps the French media are keeping quiet for fear that publishing the truth will pour oil on the flames. Who are these rioting youths? The mainstream reports contain the hints necessary to put it all together.
Car burning “also became a voice of protest during the fiery unrest by despairing youths from housing projects that swept France in the fall of 2005,” continues AP. “At the time, police counted 8,810 vehicles burned in less than three weeks.
“Yet even then, cars were not burned in big cities like Paris, and that remained the case this New Year’s Eve. [Interior Minister Manuel] Valls said the Paris suburban region of Seine-Saint-Denis, where the 2005 unrest started, led the nation for torched cars, followed by two eastern regions around Strasbourg.”
Who rioted in 2005? At the time, the New York Times wrote that “a majority of the youths committing the acts are Muslim, and of African or North African origin.” Seine-Saint-Denis is heavily Muslim.
Even the Iranian state-owned Press TV notes the connection between car burning and Muslim districts. “While not a single car was burned in Paris, its suburban region of Seine Saint Denis led the nation in torchings,” it wrote. “Heavily Muslim and just as heavily dependent on welfare, the area has 75 percent of the population of Paris, but Paris is protected by five times as many police officers.”
Whether you believe that Muslims are rioting or that French police refuse to protect France’s poor Muslim districts (à la Press TV), it’s clear France has a problem with Islam. And that’s becoming obvious to the French too. They can hardly escape it after last year’s shocking attacks on Jews.
This week, the Gatestone Institute, a U.S.-based think tank, published a comprehensive report titled “The Islamization of France” detailing Islam’s confrontations with French society.
“In August, the French government announced a plan to boost policing in 15 of the most crime-ridden parts of France, in an effort to reassert state control over the country’s so-called ‘no go’ zones (Muslim-dominated neighborhoods that are largely off limits to non-Muslims),” it wrote. These zones “include heavily Muslim parts of Paris, Marseilles, Strasbourg, Lille and Amiens,” according to the report—in other words, the areas where people burn cars. Obviously the government’s plan hasn’t succeeded.
But the Gatestone Institute’s report notes that French attitudes to Islam are changing. “Opinion surveys show that to voters in France … Islam and the question of Muslim immigration have emerged in 2012 as a top-ranked public concern,” it writes. “The French, it seems, are increasingly worried about the establishment of a parallel Muslim society there.” The government’s efforts, however, “were halting and half-hearted,” the report said.
A survey published in October last year found that 60 percent believe Islam has become “too visible and influential.” Forty-three percent said the presence of Muslim immigrants is a threat to French national identity, compared to 17 percent who said it enriches society. Sixty-three percent oppose Muslim women wearing veils or Islamic headscarves in public. Only 18 percent support the building of new mosques.
“Our poll shows a further hardening in French people’s opinions,” said the head of the French Institute of Public Opinion’s polling department, Jerome Fourquet. “In recent years, there has not been a week when Islam has not been in the heart of the news for social reasons: the veil, halal food, dramatic news like terrorist attacks or geopolitical reasons.”
The most headline-grabbing resistance to radical Islam came from the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Islamists firebombed its offices in November 2011 after it published cartoons of Mohammed. Its response? This week it published Mohammed’s biography in cartoon form.
Nearly a thousand years ago, France was at the heart of the clash between Islam and Europe’s Christian civilization. Now, as home to the EU’s largest Muslim population, it is at the heart of that clash once again. The politics haven’t changed to reflect this. But the people have.
Islam vs Europe One of the best indicators of the sheer malignancy of the Muslim mindset is the way jihad attacks are stepped up on days that are special or sacred to the Muslims’ victims. Christmas, for example, now brings a flurry of jihad attacks each year, no longer just in the Middle East but around Europe and elsewhere too. As well as the high profile terrorist incidents, the Muslims find ways of expressing their contempt for the infidel through many smaller-scale church burnings and desecrations that rarely make national headlines.
In France, Bastille Day, has become another such occasion. What, for the French people, is a day of celebration, one in which they express their sense of national togetherness, is, for the Muslim invaders currently colonising their country, a day of rage, an opportunity for them to express their malignant contempt for the French people.
The night before Bastille Day has now become a time of ritualised violence in France. Every year, Muslims set fire to cars and engage in pitched battles with the French police. Look at the video above. It’s like something out of Beirut or Gaza.
Muslims are now apparently competing with one another to see who can destroy France the fastest. According to a police trade union spokesman, two adjacent “problem” housing estates, Bois Labbé and des Mordacs, are engaged in a “ferocious competition” with one another.

Several businesses, groups, and individuals have sued in court to fight the payment of fines for adhering to their religious convictions. Some Federal court judges (will miracles never cease) have actually issued injunctions protecting those folks from being hammered with massive fines, at least until they have had their day in court.

The Hamas-CAIR #myjihad ad campaign, one of the most ridiculous and insulting to the intelligence of every American and freedom-loving human being, has now been posted in San Francisco. Hamas-CAIR launched this joke in Chicago last month. Our counter campaign (scroll below) was submitted in Chicago over three weeks ago and we are still awaiting approval (or rejection). But these tools can’t get the Hamas-CAIR ads up fast enough. Bend over, boys.
We have submitted the ad to San Francisco as well. Knowing what gutless wonders the officials of the SF transit authority are, this should prove interesting, I wouldn’t be surprised if the SFMTA posted its own ads to counter ours, saying, “#myjihad is trying to keep AFDI’s ads off our buses!”
According to the reporter, Laird Harrison, ”the understanding of ‘jihad’ in English seems to be evolving.” Tell that to the 270 million victims of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements.
Harrison attempts to “broaden” the meaning of jihad, but as you can see, all the definitions pre-2001 refer to holy war. But the Islamic supremacist war in the information battle-space has been successfully launched. Imagine, they are passing off this garbage in post-911 America. It’s appalling. Oceans of blood dismissed by these ghouls.
‘My Jihad’ Ad Campaign Launched on SF Buses” KQED, Janaury 3, 2013What does “jihad” mean to you?A “My Jihad” bus advertisement. (Council on American-Islamic Relations)
Concerned that many people misunderstand the term – and have negative stereotypes of Muslims — the Council on American-Islamic Relations has launched a an advertising campaign on San Francisco buses.
“Jihad is a central tenet of the Islamic creed which means struggling uphill in order to get to a better place,” CAIR said in a media release.
“My Jihad is to build friendships across the aisle,” the ads say. “What’s yours?”
CAIR started the advertising partly to counter an earlier bus advertising campaign by Pamela Geller. “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel,” said Geller’s ads. “Defeat jihad.”
Muni began running Geller’s ads in August after a federal judge ruled that New York City had accept them on public transit there. The San Francisco agency later posted its own ads on the same buses explaining that Muni disavowed Geller’s message.
The CAIR campaign started last week in San Francisco, and as of Jan. 3, ads were circulating on the sides of 35 Muni buses, according to the media release. It extends a similar campaign that began Dec. 11 in Chicago.
The understanding of “jihad” in English seems to be evolving.
The 1895 book “A Dictionary of Islam” by Thomas Patrick Hughes gives this definition:
Lit. “An effort, or a striving.” A religious war with those who are unbelievers in the mission of Muhammad. It is an incumbent religious duty, established in the Qur’an and in the Traditions as a divine institution, and enjoined specially for the purpose of advancing Islam and of repelling evil from Muslims.
My 1971 edition of the Compact Oxford English Dictionary similarly defines jihad as “A religious war of Mohammedans against nonbelievers in Islam, inculcated as a duty by the Koran and traditions.”
But according to the 2010 book “Essential Islam: A Comprehensive Guide to Belief and Practice” by Diane Morgan, “jihad” has long been used within the religion both to mean an internal struggle and a fight against the enemies of Islam.
And the Free Online Dictionary gives three definitions:
1. Islam An individual’s striving for spiritual self-perfection.
2. Islam A Muslim holy war or spiritual struggle against infidels.
3. A crusade or struggle: “The war against smoking is turning into a jihad against people who smoke” (Fortune).
Here’s how the current campaign started, according to the media release:
Volunteers working on the campaign include activists and students, but the crux of the volunteers have been a group of working moms who are disturbed by the prospects of their children growing up in an environment of gross misinformation about Islam that sometimes spills into outright hatred such as with the recent anti-Islam ads sponsored by Pamela Geller.
The CAIR campaign has a website and extends to Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter where users are asked to tweet about their own jihad #MyJihad hashtag.
Many tweets follow the spirit of the CAIR campaign, such as this one:
Okay new intentions. #MyJihad for this month is to study harder and keep my prayers on time. Starting tomorrow.
But others tweets are taking a more critical tone, including this one from Pamela Geller:
Here are all the ads in our series:

Blistering proof of what freedom-loving people across the world are up against. Today in the Daily Mail, one of the “better” newspapers (it’s relative, I know) that covers stories most other publications won’t is a breathtaking glimpse of how crippled the media is at covering jihad, sharia, and Islam.
They have surrendered our freedom without so much as shedding a tear. Look at how ridiculous these cowards are.
Daily Mail wimps out, pixelates Charlie Hebdo cartoon of Muhammad JihadwatchAn unexpurgated photo from the same shoot
The Daily Mail recently posted a story about the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo’s new comic book life of Muhammad; they illustrated the story with a photo of a man standing in front of the Charlie Hebdo offices after Islamic jihadists had firebombed them. The man is holding one of the earlier issues of the paper that featured cartoons of Muhammad, but the Daily Mail pixelated out the images.
This is the suicide of the free press. The Daily Mail is generally better than the other papers in Britain in covering the jihad threat, but it is also careless, sensationalistic, and — as this proves — execrably cowardly. The Daily Mail is hereby signaling that violent intimidation works, and that all you have to do to get the West’s vaunted “free press” to cower before you and give up its freedom is lob a few bombs, kill a few innocents, make a few threats.
The proper response to violent intimidation is not for its victims to curtail their activities and to change their behavior. That only encourages the bullies. The proper response is to stand up to them, show them that they will not get their way, and do all one can to protect those whom they may harm. This would show the world that the West will not give up its principle of free speech, our foremost bulwark against tyranny, and will stand for our principles against attempts to intimidate us into enforcing Sharia blasphemy laws upon ourselves.
In that same paper is a huge puff piece on the wildly dishonest and insulting ruse campaign on jihad sponsored by the Hamas group in America, un-indicted co-conspirator CAIR. You’ll notice the vile Ahmed Rehab is quoting at length without question or comment.
They are not alone. The American press did the same thing.
AFDI is not quoted at all. No comment was sought. So afraid is the Daily Mail. If they had inquired, they would know that the savage ad already ran — months ago (instead, they say 10 ads will run next week. Did they miss Mona’s meltdown?).
They would know we are launching our own “that’s my jihad, what’s yours?”
