Booby-trapped terror tunnel found in UNRWA health clinic, Obama joins ant-Israel hate fest

Tunnel found in UNRWA health clinic
More details emerge on the booby-trapped tunnel uncovered in the southern Gaza Strip today:

An Israeli elite squad searching for tunnels near Khan Younis uncovers a booby-trapped opening in a small UNRWA health clinic.

The troops send in sniffing dogs and a small robot to minimize damage to the structure, but despite the precautionary measures, the explosives rigged to the tunnel are detonated, demolishing the building on top of the soldiers.

Earlier reports indicated that a number of soldiers were injured.

Brig. Gen. Micky Edelstein says militants have used more than a thousand IEDs so far, destroying thousands of buildings in the Gaza Strip.

For instance, he says, in sweeps of a single street of 28 buildings last night, 19 were found to be booby-trapped.

UN chief says attack on UNRWA school is ‘unjustifiable’
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemns an Israeli strike on a Gaza school that killed 16 people as “unjustifiable” Wednesday, calling for those responsible to be held to account.

“This morning a UN school sheltering thousands of Palestinian families suffered a reprehensible attack,” Ban says during a visit to Costa Rica.

“It is unjustifiable, and demands accountability and justice.”

Ban accuses the Israeli military of ignoring repeated communications on the location of the school.

“I want to make it clear that the exact location of this elementary school has been communicated to the Israeli military authorities 17 times, as recently as last night, just a few hours before this attack,” he says.

“They are aware of the coordinates and exact location of where these people are.”
Sorry, Ban Ki-moon, but when UNRWA is repeatedly found storing rockets and weapons on its premises, some of which are also appear to be booby-trapped, it makes itself a legitimate target for ant-terrorism strikes.

Washington condemns shelling of UNRWA school
The United States is condemning the shelling of a UN school in the Gaza Strip that was sheltering displaced Palestinians.

The US did not say who was responsible for shelling the school. Gaza officials say Israel shelled the school, killing 15 and wounding 90. The Israeli military says it fired back after soldiers were targeted by mortar rounds launched from the vicinity of the school.

White House spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan says the US is also “extremely concerned” that thousands of Palestinians aren’t safe in UN-designated shelters in Gaza.

Meehan says the US also condemns those responsible for hiding weapons in UN facilities in Gaza. She says the escalation shows the need for a ceasefire as soon as possible.

Obama’s Muslim Founding Fathers

(FPM) In his message to Muslims on their holiday Eid al-Fitr, issued Sunday, Barack Obama asserted that “Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” He did not, unfortunately, provide even a single example of these “many achievements and contributions” that Muslims have made to “building the very fabric of our nation,” but he said that there were many, so they shouldn’t be hard to list a few, right?

You remember a few of them, don’t you? Remember the Muslim signers of the Declaration of Independence? With Yahya al-Hanqoq’s large signature front and center, so that the infidel King George III could read it without his spectacles? And then there was Ibrahim Clark of New Jersey and El-Bridge Gerry of Massachusetts. Remember also the Muslims who gave James Madison information about Muhammad’s Constitution of Medina – which, as we all know, granted equal rights to women and religious minorities, predating such documents in the West by 1,000 years. Madison, of course, used the Medina Constitution as a model when framing the U.S. Constitution.

Then there were the Muslims who fought so valiantly during the War of 1812 and the Mexican War. And in the titanic struggles over slavery, Muslims were front and center: remember the Muslim abolitionist Senators who faced down the South in the antebellum Senate, the Senate chamber ringing with their oratory about how the Qur’an says to free slaves and so the U.S. government should, too? Remember the Muslim regiments in the Civil War (all on the Union side, of course!)? Then in the aftermath of the Civil War came the Muslim industrialists who brought us railroads, the telegraph, the telephone.

Not to be forgotten are the Muslims who also fought courageously in the Spanish-American War, World War I and World War II, and the Muslim entertainers who kept us laughing on the Vaudeville circuit and on the home front during those terrible world wars with their jokes from the Hadith.

None of this rings a bell? Not to worry. Before too long it will be taught in all the textbooks. Absurd? Maybe – but no more than Obama’s statement itself. And even if they don’t go so far as to Islamize John Hancock and imagine Muslim Americans fighting against slavery and defending America in world wars, public school textbooks already present a ridiculously rosy picture of Islam. A study by the American Textbook Council, an independent national research organization that evaluates the quality of textbooks, found that ten of the most widely used middle school and high school social studies textbooks “present an incomplete and confected view of Islam that misrepresents its foundations and challenges to international security.”

The books present highly tendentious constructions as undisputed truth, making common cause with West-hating multiculturalists to bowdlerize the presentation of Islam, denigrate or downplay Christianity and Western civilization, and transform numerous public school textbooks into proselytizing tracts.

Meanwhile, even though the Constitution of Medina is of highly doubtful authenticity and is contradicted both by Islamic law and by Islamic traditions about Muhammad’s actions, it is already becoming common for Islamic apologists to invoke it as evidence that Islam and democracy are not only compatible, but that Islam originated the idea of republican rule. Ahmadi Muslim apologist Qasim Rashid recently wrote in the Huffington Post that “when Prophet Muhammad was popularly appointed Medina’s ruler, he entered into a pact with the Jewish communities of Medina. Through this pact, he granted equal political rights to non-Muslims. They were ensured complete freedom of religion and practice.” Undercutting Rashid’s case are the facts that Muhammad ended up exiling two of the Jewish tribes of Medina and massacring the third, and that the Qur’an mandates that Jews (and Christians) in the Islamic state, rather than enjoying “equal political rights,” must “pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued” (9:29).

But facts just get in the way of the narrative, and so the facts must go. It feels so good and multicultural to imagine Muslims at the founding of this nation, contributing to its very fabric, doesn’t it? Heck, speaking of fabric, probably Betsy Ross was a Muslim. And doesn’t the flag of South Carolina have a crescent moon on it?

Likewise regarding slavery – I imagine Muslim abolitionists above in pre-Civil War America above, in trying to give some substance to Barack Obama’s absurd statement. In reality, of course, there were no Muslim abolitionists, or Muslims, in the antebellum United States. What’s more, there were no Muslim abolitionists anywhere. Islamic apologists in the West routinely claim that Islam forbids slavery, but in fact the Qur’an takes slavery for granted, and according to Islamic tradition, Muhammad hallowed the practice by owning slaves himself. In some Muslim nations, it is still practiced, even though it is against the law (laws that initially began to be adopted in Muslim countries under Western pressure). Mauritania, for example, abolished slavery in 1981 and made it a crime in 2012, but it is still widespread — because it has Islamic sanction. Yet I myself remember being taught in high school, way back in the 1970s, that the last country to abolish slavery was Brazil, in 1889. There was no mention of Saudi Arabia’s abolishing slavery in 1962, or of the persistence of the practice in some Muslim countries. And that was forty years ago, showing that whitewashing of Islam in the textbooks, now rampant, had begun even then.

So when it comes to Barack Obama’s claim that Muslim Americans have made contributions to “building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy,” if there were no Muslim Founding Fathers scrutinizing the Constitution of Medina for material they could use in the charter document of their new nation, then they have to be invented. The textbooks have already departed from reality regarding Islam – what could possibly be the problem with a few more steps into fantasy? What difference, at this point, does it make? Yahya al-Hanqoq, grab your quill!

To the Students for Justice in Palestine, a Letter From an Angry Black Woman


‘You do not have the right to invoke my people’s struggle for your shoddy purposes’

A protest led by Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of Maryland, College Park in 2009.

By Chloe ValdaryJul 28, 2014

The student organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is prominent on many college campuses, preaching a mantra of “Freeing Palestine.” It masquerades as though it were a civil rights group when it is not. Indeed, as an African-American, I am highly insulted that my people’s legacy is being pilfered for such a repugnant agenda. It is thus high time to expose its agenda and lay bare some of the fallacies they peddle.

• If you seek to promulgate the legacy of early Islamic colonialists who raped and pillaged the Middle East, subjugated the indigenous peoples living in the region, and foisted upon them a life of persecution and degradation—you do not get to claim the title of “Freedom Fighter.”

• If you support a racist doctrine of Arab supremacism and wish (as a corollary of that doctrine) to destroy the Jewish state, you do not get to claim that the prejudices you peddle are forms of legitimate “resistance.”

• If your heroes are clerics who sit in Gaza plotting the genocide of a people; who place their children on rooftops in the hopes they will get blown to bits; who heap praises upon their fellow gang members when they succeed in murdering Jewish school boys and bombing places of activity where Jews congregate—you do not get to claim that you are some Apollonian advocate of human virtue. You are not.

• If your activities include grieving over the woefully incompetent performance by Hamas rocketeers and the subsequent millions of Jewish souls who are still alive—whose children were not murdered by their rockets; whose limbs were not torn from them; and whose disembowelment did not come into fruition—you do not get to claim that you stand for justice. You profess to be irreproachable. You are categorically not.

• If your idea of a righteous cause entails targeting and intimidating Jewish students on campus, arrogating their history of exile-and-return and fashioning it in your own likeness you do not get to claim that you do so in the name of civil liberty and freedom of expression.

• You do not get to champion regimes that murder, torture, and persecute their own people, deliberately keep them impoverished, and embezzle billions of dollar from them—and claim you are “pro-Arab.” You are not.

• You do not get to champion a system wherein Jews are barred from purchasing land, traveling in certain areas, and living out such an existence merely because they are Jews—and claim that you are promoting equality for all. You do not get to enable that system by pushing a boycott of Jewish owned businesses, shops, and entities—and then claim that you are “against apartheid.” That is evil.

• You do not get to justify the calculated and deliberate bombings, beatings, and lynchings of Jewish men, women, and children by referring to such heinous occurrences as part of a noble “uprising” of the oppressed—that is racism. It is evil.

• You do not get to pretend as though you and Rosa Parks would have been great buddies in the 1960s. Rosa Parks was a real Freedom Fighter. Rosa Parks was a Zionist.

Coretta Scott King was a Zionist.

A. Phillip Randolph was a Zionist.

Bayard Rustin was a Zionist.

Count Basie was a Zionist.

Dr. Martin Luther King Sr. was a Zionist.

Indeed, they and many more men and women signed a letter in 1975 that stated: “We condemn the anti-Jewish blacklist. We have fought too long and too hard to root out discrimination from our land to sit idly while foreign interests import bigotry to America. Having suffered so greatly from such prejudice, we consider most repugnant the efforts by Arab states to use the economic power of their newly-acquired oil wealth to boycott business firms that deal with Israel or that have Jewish owners, directors, or executives, and to impose anti-Jewish preconditions for investments in this country.”

You see, my people have always been Zionists because my people have always stood for the freedom of the oppressed. So, you most certainly do not get to culturally appropriate my people’s history for your own. You do not have the right to invoke my people’s struggle for your shoddy purposes and you do not get to feign victimhood in our name. You do not have the right to slander my people’s good name and link your cause to that of Dr. King’s. Our two causes are diametrically opposed to each other.

Your cause is the antithesis of freedom. It has cost hundreds of thousands of lives of both Arabs and Jews. It has separated these peoples, and has fomented animosity between them. It has led to heartache, torment, death and destruction.

It is of course your prerogative to continue to utilize platitudes for your cause. You are entirely within your rights to chant words like “equality” “justice” and “freedom fighter.”

You can keep using those words for as long as you like. But I do not think you know what they mean.

UNRWA again, for the third time, "finds" rockets in one of its schools

Third rocket cache found at UNRWA school
(Times of Israel) UNRWA, the UN aid agency for Palestinian refugees, says it’s found another rocket arsenal stashed at one of its schools in the central Gaza Strip. This latest find is the third case of arms discovered at a UN-run school since the outset of Operation Protective Edge.

The UN agency says the school was closed for the summer and not in use as a shelter.

Muslims in Germany firebomb synagogues, threaten a Jewish kindergarten, threaten to kill Jews

Disproportionate response?

Tranquility news update

(Newsweek) The mob howled for vengeance, the missiles raining down on the synagogue walls as the worshippers huddled inside. It was a scene from Europe in the 1930s – except this was eastern Paris on the evening of July 13th, 2014.

Thousands had gathered to demonstrate against the Israeli bombardment of Gaza. But the protest soon turned violent – and against Jews in general. One of those trapped told Israeli television that the streets outside were “like an intifada”, the Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation.

Some of the trapped Jews fought their way out as the riot police dispersed the crowd. Manuel Valls, the French Prime Minister, condemned the attack in “the strongest possible terms”, while Joel Mergei, a community leader, said he was “profoundly shocked and revolted”. The words had no effect. Two weeks later, 400 protesters attacked a synagogue and Jewish-owned businesses in Sarcelles, in the north of Paris, shouting “Death to the Jews”. Posters had even advertised the raid in advance, like the pogroms of Tsarist Russia.

France has suffered the worst violence, but anti-Semitism is spiking across Europe, fuelled by the war in Gaza. In Britain, the Community Security Trust (CST) says there were around 100 anti-Semitic incidents in July, double the usual number. The CST has issued a security alert for Jewish institutions. In Berlin a crowd of anti-Israel protesters had to be prevented from attacking a synagogue. In Liege, Belgium, a café owner put up a sign saying dogs were welcome, but Jews were not allowed.

Yet for many French and European Jews, the violence comes as no surprise. Seventy years after the Holocaust, from Amiens to Athens, the world’s oldest hatred flourishes anew. For some, opposition to Israeli policies is now a justification for open hatred of Jews – even though many Jews are strongly opposed to Israel’s rightward lurch, and support the establishment of a Palestinian state.

As Stephen Pollard, the editor of the Jewish Chronicle, argues: “These people were not attacked because they were showing their support for the Israeli government. They were attacked because they were Jews, going about their daily business.”

One weekend in May seemed to epitomise the darkness. On May 24th a gunman pulled out a Kalashnikov assault rifle at the Jewish Museum in Brussels and opened fire, killing four people. The next day the results of the elections to the European parliament showed a surge in support for extreme-right ­parties in France, Greece, Hungary and Germany. The National Front in France won the election, which many fear could be a precursor to eventually taking power in a national election.

Perhaps the most shocking result was the surge in support for Golden Dawn in Greece. The party, which has been described as openly neo-Nazi, won almost 10% of the vote, bringing it three members of the European parliament.

In parts of Hungary, especially the impoverished north and east, Jobbik is the main opposition to the governing right-wing Fidesz. Jobbik won 14.7% of votes at the European elections. The party denies being antisemitic but even Marine Le Pen, leader of the French National Front, ruled out cooperating with them in the European parliament.

In November 2012, Marton Gyöngyösi, a senior Jobbik MP, called for a list to be made of Hungarian Jews, especially those working in Parliament or for the government, as they posed a “national security risk”. (Gyöngyösi later apologised and said he was referring only to Jews with dual Israeli-­Hungarian citizenship.)

Some saw the Brussels attack and the election results as dark portents. “At what point,” asked Jeffrey Goldberg, a prominent American Jewish journalist, “do the Jews of America and the Jews of Israel tell the Jews of Europe that it might be time to get out?” Around now, it seems.

Coexistence news update: Hamas sermon in Gaza calls for total extermination of the Jews

Final Ramadan Death Count Round Up (July 29, 2014)

Ramadan 2014 ended yesterday. This final round will only include those poor souls who were murdered by some prick screaming 'Allah ackba' yesterday:

(China) Well, with the end of Ramadan, Chinese Muslims rushed out onto the streets of Elixku, a township in Kashgar prefecture, and attacked anything that wasn't Islamic. After killing dozens of Han Chinese, they set fire to over 30 cars, before the police turned up and shot the attackers dead. Figures still have to be released by the Chinese. Unofficially, 20 Uighurs were shot dead by armed authorities while 10 were injured. A total of 13 Chinese security personnel were killed and injured, so until then the death count for this Islamic attack is zero.

(Nigeria) Boko Haram on Monday attacked Katarko village on the outskirts of Damaturu, the Yobe state capital, murdering eight people and blowing up a bridge.

(Iraq) Air Force killed 150 ISIL terrorists in Mosul on Monday.

15 ISIS  terrorists killed in northern Babel on Monday.

Ramadan death toll is now at 8,350.

Gulsheraz Mughal jailed for raping a woman during Ramadan

(Nottingham) Ramadan is supposed to be the Islamic month of reflection where they are supposed to help their neighbour (yeah, right), abstain from food (which is why Muslims actually put on weight during Ramadan), not have any violent thoughts and abstain from carnal (carnal, not camel) pleasures.

The problem for 39-year-old Gulsheraz Mughal was that he wanted to be as good as the founder of Islam, so he travelled 130 miles from London up the M1 to Nottingham and raped a woman like all good Muslims feel is their divine right.

Well today the dirty little bastard, was sent down for 6 years and placed on the sex offenders register for life. Err, can somebody please tell me why we can't deport him?

Hopefully, Mr Mughal will have the pleasure of screaming out 'Allah Ackba' during the next few Ramadans as his cell mate makes him bend over 5 times a day in which to show him the error of his ways.

Suspect in Jewish Museum shooting extradited to Belgium

Mehdi Nemmouche
(CNN) -- The suspect in the deadly shooting at Belgium's Jewish Museum was extradited from France to Belgium, a French court official said Tuesday.

He is Mehdi Nemmouche, arrested in France for the May 24 attack. Nemmouche recently spent a year in Syria and is a radicalized Islamist, French officials said.

When French police arrested Nemmouche on May 30, they also seized a Kalashnikov rifle wrapped in a flag bearing the ISIS insignia, according to prosecutors.

A Belgian Federal Police spokeswoman, Tine Hollevoet, confirmed that the 29-year-old Frenchman had been extradited to Belgium on Tuesday morning but could not give further information for security reasons.

Four people were killed in the daytime attack in central Brussels.

Two of the victims were an Israeli couple in their 50s from Tel Aviv, Israel's Foreign Ministry said. The third victim was a French woman and the fourth was a young man.

Images from the museum showed the gunman behind the deadly attack approaching the building, opening fire, and walking away.

'Women should not laugh in public,' says Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister

(The Independent) Women should not laugh in public in Turkey, the Deputy Prime Minister has said in a speech on “moral corruption” in the country.

Bülent Arınç used a meeting for Eid al-Fitr on Monday to condemn perceived moral regression, consumerism and even excessive mobile phone use.

He called for chastity in both men and women and blamed television and the media for turning teenagers into “sex addicts”, the Hürriyet Daily News reported.

“[The man] will not be a womaniser. He will be bound to his wife. He will love his children. [The woman] will know what is haram and not haram. She will not laugh in public. She will not be inviting in her attitudes and will protect her chasteness,” Mr Arınç said according to the paper.

He called for Turkish people to rediscover the Koran and stop moral regression.

“[The man] will not be a womaniser. He will be bound to his wife. He will love his children. [The woman] will know what is haram and not haram. She will not laugh in public. She will not be inviting in her attitudes and will protect her chasteness,” Mr Arınç said according to the paper.

He called for Turkish people to rediscover the Koran and stop moral regression.

Yes, those in Iraq and Syria who are unfortunate enough to find themselves under the rule on the Islamic State, are rediscovering Koran right now. And let's not even talk about Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan and so on.

Tranquility News Update: Somalian jihadist group Al-Shabab calls for attacks on Jewish targets worldwide

(JPost) An Al-Shabab Al-Mujahideen spokesman delivered a sermon in a Barawa mosque in Somalia on Sunday calling upon Muslims to attack Jewish targets everywhere, according to a report provided exclusively to The Jerusalem Post by the Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor of MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute).

Speaking about the conflict in Gaza, Al-Shabab spokesman Ali Dhere said all of the “nations of unbelief” participated in the “aggression against Gaza,” mentioning specifically “the Americans who stood by the Jews in their aggression against the Muslims in Gaza.”

Al-Shabab’s news agency Al-Shahada reported the sermon in which Dhere blamed Egypt for locking its borders with Gaza.

He also blamed the United Nations for “protecting global unbelief” and for making do with “standing by as witnesses and condemning the crimes committed by the Jews in Gaza.”

Dhere called upon Muslims to stand up and take revenge for their Muslim brothers in Gaza, saying: “The Jews are spread out throughout the world, and the Jews’ properties are spread everywhere. In light of this, the Muslims must attack the Jews and their properties in every place, and they must pray for their brothers in Gaza.”

Tranquility News Update: 'We are looking at the beginnings of a Holocaust'

(JPost) The situation facing European Jewry is “simply intolerable, unacceptable and inexcusable,” Israeli Jewish Congress president Vladimir Sloutsker told MKs and foreign diplomats at a special session of the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee on Monday.

Calling the rise in anti-Semitic incidents accompanying Israel’s invasion of Gaza an “SOS situation,” Sloutsker warned that if left unchecked, such behavior could lead to another European genocide.

“Never before since the Holocaust, have we seen such a situation as today,” he said, referring to the continent-wide demonstrations by pro-Palestinian activists, a number of which have generated into violence and many of which have featured racist rhetoric.

“We are potentially looking at the beginning of another Holocaust now. These events [violent demonstrations and expressions of anti-Semitism] will only grow in scale across Europe,” he asserted.

Eye on the World cartoon

Hamas currently engaged in buying more missiles from North Korea

(Pyongyang) A common statement used by the left, Muslims, village idiots and those who simply don't know better is that the low Israeli death toll is down to the fact that Hamas is using home-made weapons.

Really? Can somebody please point me in the direction of how you can knock out 9M133 Kornet anti-tank missile systems which are designed to take out M1A2 tanks, seeing as Hamas have been using them since April 2011 when they used one to hit a coach full of school children, murdering 16-year-old Daniel Viflic.

It's the same with their Grad missiles (supplied from Iran via Sudan). In this latest conflict Hamas has been using Syrian M-302 missiles (weighs 1,155lbs, has a 385 high explosive warhead which is surrounded by ball bearings and has a range of up to 132 miles). So actually, the little war which Hamas started isn't as asymmetrical as the left wants us to believe.

Anyway, news has come out that Hamas is currently shopping for more weapons (aid money?) in which to continue the Islamic war against the Jews, and there lies the reason why the entire Islamic world has no problem supporting Hamas - they wish to eradicate the Jews.

Germany's biggest newspaper slams Islam; Muslims and Liberals offended

(Berlin) Germany's biggest-selling newspaper has faced calls to apologise for an editorial comment piece criticising Islam which has sparked debate and controversy in the country.

Nicolaus Fest, the vice editor in chief of the newspaper Bild am Sonntag was criticised after accusing Islam of a 'murderous contempt for women and homosexuals' in a comment piece yesterday.

Fest described the religion as 'a barrier to integration', saying:
'I don't believe in God, but at the same time Christianity, Judaism or Buddhism don't bother me. Only Islam bothers me more and more.'
"I'm bothered by the considerably disproportionate criminality of youths from Muslim backgrounds," I'm bothered by Islam's murderous contempt for women and homosexuals. I'm bothered by forced marriages, 'justices of the peace,' 'honour killings. I don't need any imported racism and I don't need anything else Islam stands for,"
All this, wrote Fest, was making Islam "a barrier to integration" - something which should be weighed up when assessing claims for asylum and visa applications to Germany.

Pelosi: Qataris Have Told Me 'Hamas Is a Humanitarian Organization' and I believe Them

How many other "humanitarian organizations" does the State Department have on it's terror list?

But you can't trust fucking Qatar, who can you trust?
(CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says the United States must look to Qatar, an ally of the terrorist group Hamas, for advice in resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

"And we have to confer with the Qataris, who have told me over and over again that Hamas is a humanitarian organization," she told CNN's "State of the Union" with Candy Crowley.

As CNSNews.com reported last week, Qatar is a strong supporter and funder of Hamas. Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal operates from Qatar, and has so far rejected ceasefire proposals put forward by Egypt and promoted by Secretary of State John Kerry.

The U.S government designated Hamas as a “foreign terrorist organization” in 1997. Its founding charter calls for Jews to be killed and says all Muslims are duty-bound to join a jihad to destroy Israel.

In an interview aired on CBS's "Face the Nation" Sunday, Hamas leader Meshaal said Hamas does not fight the Jews just because they are Jews. "We fight the occupiers," he said. As if he wants to recognize Israel as a Jewish state?, Meshaal said "No."

More...
BTW, it's estimated more than 900 slave workers people have died building soccer stadiums for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar... and there's 8 more years to go.

Of course, it's difficult to get real numbers because those good people admired by Nancy Alzheimers Pelosi won't release them, but it's about the same as the number of innocents who have died in the Israel-Gaza conflict.

But, no Jews, so no outrage.

Ramadan Death Count Round Up (July 28, 2014)

(Pakistan) As is the way of Islam, a huge crowd, incandescent with rage over rumours that somebody from the minority branch of Ahmadi Muslims had posted a Facebook article which showed the Kaaba (that black square thing in the middle of Mecca) in a disrespectful way, marched en masse to the local Ahmadi community and, like true Islamic warriors, they murdered a woman and her two granddaughters.

Four Pakistani Taliban terrorists were killed in a shootout with the police in Karachi on Monday evening.

(Iraq) Police found 15 corpses in different parts of the capital, security sources said. Among them were three women aged 25-30 who had been handcuffed and shot in the head execution-style in an industrial area just north of the Shi'ite Sadr City district.

(Indonesia) Two Indonesians were slashed and beaten to death by a group of men in front of a shopping mall in Bukit Jambul. The men, identified as Muhammad Junaidi, 26, and Aidin, 20, were sitting outside the complex when the group, believed to be also Indonesians, attacked them in 6.30pm Sunday.

(Philippines) Islamic terrorists massacred 21 people, including one child, who were travelling to a village feast in the southern Philippines to mark the end of Ramadan.

(Thailand) A soldier and three suspected Muslim separatists have been killed during a clash in the country's south.

(Nigeria) A female suicide bomber detonated her explosive device in the midst of a queue of women waiting to purchase cooking gas in Kano city, killing 3 and injuring 13. A second attack hours later was foiled with only the stupid cow getting killed.

Over the past 24 hours, 4 women have blown themselves up for Allah.

Ramadan death toll is now at 8,177.

Obama administration threatens Israel for criticizing Kerry

Well now...
