State of the Obama
I catch two minutes of the State of the Union speech (strictly by accident, this is not something I ever watch no matter who the president is), and what do I hear? Blame Bush: "this deficit spending began a decade ago." And then there is the famous trick of talking out of both sides of the mouth. You know, we MUST and WILL cut spending (paraphrasing), but not if it hurts vulnerable people. Yeah, right.

Cyber Victory in Iran: Nobel Peace Prize for Stuxnet?
I found this
interesting. The more I learn about Stuxnet, the more fascinating it gets.
Three attacks on developing nuclear centers have occurred in the world, the most recent scant months ago. It is amazing that the year 2010, pegged universally as crunch time regarding Iran's atomic ambitions, ended with such a whimper, not a bang. It was to be a year characterized ultimately by a crippling counter-blow to Teheran's plans -with nary a peep from the media. No "top 10 stories of 2010" inclusions. Not even a Wiki-leak.
Considering the fact that the destruction of these nuclear centers had such huge implications for the world and that elusive concept dreamed of by so many, "world peace", you would think that these, especially the latest, would garner more attention. Stuxnet has slowed down Iran's dream of nuclear weapons, but not shattered it. Even if Iran's nuclear scientists and technicians are looking over their shoulders on their way to work, they're still plodding ahead.
I have to assume though, that Israel and other concerned parties are working on other ways to slow down the Iranian nuclear nightmare.

Outrageous Discrimination or Simple Sharia?
From an article in USA Today
According to Islamic bioethics, a Muslim patient's first choice of a doctor would be one who is also Muslim and of the same sex. Second choice would be a non-Muslim of the same sex, followed by a Muslim of the opposite sex and a non-Muslim of the opposite sex, Padela and his co-author write.
No big deal, right? After all, we must all reach out to our new Islamic neighbors and meet their every need, respond to their every whim, and generally succumb to whatever irrational and hateful demands they may inflict upon us. If a Muslim rejects a Jewish doctor because that doctor might be a - gasp - Zionist, we must, for some reason, accept that.
Wait. Did that come out right? Maybe, maybe not. But if my first choice of a doctor was based on religion, or ethnicity, or sex, I would be accused of being a hatemonger, or a racist, or sexist, or some other overused and increasingly meaningless label. But as some religions are more equal than others, this is merely a simple bit of information. So keep that information in mind the next time you or someone you know is accused of being intolerant due to a choice they or you make that is based on your feelings or self-interest.

But They're Not All Terrorists
I don't have to tell anybody which religion I'm talking about when I say that. Even the defenders who use that as their big talking point and try desperately not to think of Islam when they try to excuse each new terror attack can't help but think of Islam, because - do I really need to say it?
Besides the fact that "they're not all terrorists" is at best, damning with faint praise, and at worst, setting the bar embarrassing low, there are other pathologies to consider. Honor killings have been imported to the United States by members of the Religion of They're Not All Terrorists. Just to keep everyone happy, please allow me to admit that not all Muslim fathers murder their daughters, even if the daughters do become too westernized
A homicide case that drew attention to so-called honor killings moves into the trial phase this month for an Iraqi immigrant accused of killing his daughter because he believed she was too Westernized.
Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 50, faces life in prison if convicted. In October 2009, he slammed his Jeep into Noor Almaleki, 20, prosecutors said.
The woman, who longed to live a normal American life, laid in a coma for two weeks before succumbing to her injuries, which drew outrage from people nationwide.
First question for the murderer: Why move to the West if you object to your children becoming "too westernized?" Second question: Have you stopped beating your wife, or would that make you "too westernized"?
In a stunning development, the Detroit News did, near the end of the article, mention that this whole concept of "honor killing" has been brought to our doorstep by the Religion Whose Depravity is Regularly Ignored or Excused. In reviewing past murders of Muslim women by their families,
In the Dallas suburb of Lewisville, Texas, Yaser Abdel Said, of Egypt, is accused of shooting his two Texas-born teenage daughters in the back of his taxi cab in 2008 in what the FBI calls an honor killing. Family members say Said felt the girls were acting too Western and had shamed him by dating non-Muslims.
In Buffalo, N.Y., Muzzammil Hassan is accused of beheading his wife in 2009, about a week after he was served with divorce papers. The body of Aasiya Hassan was found at the offices of Bridges TV, the station the Pakistan-born couple established in 2004 to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims.
Peoria police spokesman Mike Tellef said Noor Almaleki's killing raised awareness about honor killings in the U.S.
"Raising awareness," he says. Many of us have been aware of this pathology for years. How about if our law enforcement officers and our main stream media stand up for themselves and the people who depend on them, and stop kowtowing to CAIR, the multiculturalists, and the other enemies of Western Civilization. Maybe then, we could put a stop to this madness.
