Muslims Destroyed 10,000
Books in American School

Frontpage Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 10/2/2012 7:06:59 AM

Remember this is about a movie trailer, it’s not about a destructive ideology that runs on hate. It’s about a movie. Just like the destruction of the Library of Alexandria was about a movie. This marks the second week since the devastating attacks on the US Embassy and the American Cooperative School of Tunis (ACST), Tunisia, where I teach art and drama here in North Africa. We are still holding our breath. Nowhere in our dreams did we imagine, all of us holed up in our homes, that the “peaceful protest” would turn ugly and migrate to our school,

Comments:
This is Tunisia, not Libya.

Cut off all foreign aid to Tunisia. The good people of Tunisia have allowed Islamic radicals to turn them into savages. This kind of behavior by radicals is probably the model Occupy Wall Street is based on.

I Googled some facts about Tunisia and was amazed by the glowing travel guide reports. Tunisia was a "destination". Here is how About.com. Africa Travel begins their promotional guide.

Tunisia is a safe and friendly country in North Africa. Millions of Europeans visit annually to enjoy the beaches along the Mediterranean and soak up some ancient culture amongst the well-preserved Roman ruins. The Sahara Desert attracts adventure seekers during the winter months.

All I can say is "yeah, sure" after what has happened. If the Tunisian government doesn't deal with this harshly, then bye-bye Western dollars.

One becomes a muslim by saying the magic words: blah blah Allah blah blah prophet. One does so because one does not want to get killed or robbed or raped etc. THAT is your moderate muslim: someone who has no idea what is right and cannot rise to his/her own defense and will say what is necessary to get along.

Trust in moderates to save you from the violent ones at your own risk.

On Muslims and books: the story is that the famous Library at Alexandria was destroyed by the Muslims because with the Koran (Quran) there is no need for any other book -- from either before or after its appearance. That is why also Muslim's often destroy artifacts: buildings, statues, etc which are pre-Islamic.
And it is worthwhile noting that many or most of the large buildings built after the arrival of Islam (for example at Istanbul, and in Spain etc)were designed and built by Christian slaves.

A message for the do-gooders.

They don't like us. You are one of us. It does not matter how hard you reject the rest of us.

They will never like us, they will never like you. Their hatred is a net. It catches the good fish as well as the bad fish. In the end, you are just another fish in the net.

Those you tried to help will laugh as you flop around when pulled to dry land.

Taken from a comment below the article:
"It must be an awful feeling to realize that the very people you have been trying to help secretly despise you and that all the smiles and nods are simply a thin patina covering a cultural animosity poised to explode into irrationality and violence at the slightest perceived provocation. The barbarian will never look at the civilized man except through a glass darkened by jealousy and contempt."

Sound familiar? Could be said about the same situation right here in the U.S.A.

Earlier this week, I had a blogpost on the defense budget. It was called “Decline Is a Choice. A Bad One.” It began, “Last year, when President Obama nominated Chuck Hagel to be secretary of defense, I said, ‘The president wants a Republican war hero to preside over the gutting of American defenses. Hagel will be his cover.’ Even as I said it, I was hoping it wasn’t true. But it is true, I’m afraid.” Whenever you write as I did, people tell you about Eisenhower and the “military-industrial complex,” as though you never heard of that phrase, or the speech in

Engineering Children for Gay Granddads

While this nation´s adoption industry has been heavily regulated – and rightfully so – the engineering of children through the purchase of gametes and the rental of wombs remains the wild, wild west. In some states, anything goes. Any infertile couple working with a reputable adoption agency knows that the window of opportunity for adopting newborns closes as you approach forty years of age. After that, you´re cut off and must start considering adopting older children. In fact, agencies prefer that there be a comfortable distance between you and the big four-oh. But for white gay males, there are no rules, only

How Conservatives Can Take Back
(Some of) Hollywood for Oscar Time

It’s Oscar time again and, since I’m one of the half-dozen or so Academy voters to the right of Trotsky (okay, a little exaggeration there, but not much), I am often called upon to write something about it (and give my predictions) for the likes of PJM, National Review or City Journal. But every time I do, especially here, I get a slew of comments, sometimes dozens, reading to the effect: “I hate Hollywood. (Snip) But as you run your personal boycott of Hollywood, remember this.

Senator Rubio Advances The Ball

When it comes to higher education, most politicians are “cheerleaders.” They’re content to speak the usual pieties about the importance of college and never do anything that could upset the status quo. In a recent speech at Miami-Dade College, however, Florida Senator Marco Rubio suggested several higher education changes that might seriously upset the status quo. First, there is the Rubio-Wyden bill, known as the Student Right to Know Before You Go Act. This bill isn’t exactly new, having been introduced back in 2012. No matter – it is an intriguing proposal and all the more so for its conservative/liberal co-sponsorship.

Shapiro Crashes UCLA Divestment from
Israel Hearing, Resolution Defeated 7-5

On Tuesday night, the UCLA undergraduate student government heard public testimonies for nearly 9 hours — from 7 p.m. until 4 a.m. — on whether or not the university should go forward with a resolution to boycott and divest from businesses that allegedly “profit from the Israeli occupation of Gaza and the West Bank.” The meeting, attended by over 500 people, began at 7 p.m. Tuesday night and ended 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. Ben Shapiro, TruthRevolt.org Editor-in-Chief and UCLA alum, crashed the divestment hearing to blast both the student sponsors and those considering the anti-Semitic measure. Here’s the transcript:

In Defense of the Elastic

If college students listened to Mark Levin or Rush Limbaugh, they would receive a better American history education than they are getting from their professors. I recently spoke at Emory University, where one student defended all of President Obama’s unconstitutional actions by invoking the Elastic Clause of the Constitution. Citing the Elastic Clause could indeed justify a wide range of administration actions, except for one problem – it doesn’t exist. But you couldn’t tell that to the student at Emory University who came to my speech last week on Obama’s abuses of power. He persisted in defending the actions through the Elastic

In its annual survey of American Jewry published last October, the American Jewish Committee found that 75 percent of American Jews agree with the statement, “The goal of the Arabs is not a peaceful two-state agreement with Israel, but rather the destruction of Israel.” And yet, American Jews supported the establishment of a Palestinian state 50% to 47%. (Snip) They will do so not because they are addled. They will do so because for the past 20 years all they have heard is that Israel has no alternative to the two-state plan.

The Democrats Are Apparently
Terrified of Scott Walker

Good to know. Last week, over 27,000 pages of private e-mails from one of Wisconsin governor Scott Walker’s convicted ex-staffers were released. As soon as the document dump hit the Web, Democrats began climbing over themselves to prove that the e-mails showed that during his time as Milwaukee county executive in 2010, Walker was part of a grand criminal conspiracy — despite the fact that prosecutors had the e-mails for nearly three years and found Walker had engaged in no criminal wrongdoing.

´Paranoid, vain and jealous´ - the secret
life of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange

He is vain, secretive, paranoid and jealous, prone to leering at young women and making frequent sexist jokes – and that´s not the view of one of his many enemies, but of a friend who regards him sympathetically. A damning picture of Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks who is currently sheltering in the Ecuadorean embassy in London in a bid to avoid extradition to Sweden on rape charges, has emerged in a detailed account by his ghostwriter Andrew O’Hagan. In a 45-page essay chronicling the collapse of a $2.5m deal for Assange’s autobiography, O’Hagan, an award-winning novelist and non-fiction author, recounts

In the future, when we’re zipping around the biosphere on our jetpacks and eating our nutritionally complete food pellets, we won’t have to worry about what foods will kill us or which will make us live forever. Until then, we’re left to figure out which of the food headlines we should take to heart, and which should be taken with a grain of unrefined, mineral-rich sea salt. Low-fat or high-fat? High-protein or vegan? If you don’t trust what your body tells you, remember that food science is ever evolving. Case in point: The seven foods below are ancient. But they’ve gone

It seems as if, everywhere you turn these days, there are studies claiming to show that America has lost its upward mobility for people born in the lower socioeconomic levels. But there is a sharp difference between upward "mobility," defined as an opportunity to rise, and mobility defined as actually having risen. That distinction is seldom even mentioned in most of the studies. It is as if everybody is chomping at the bit to get ahead, and the ones that don´t rise have been stopped by "barriers" created by "society." When statistics show that sons of high school dropouts don´t become doctors

We are not in the situation of the Ukraine, however that turns out, but the events in that Eastern European country should remind us all of the sad condition of our nation, how much we now need an American Spring in the USA. Not a Spring like the Arab Spring, of course, which was and is a nightmare beyond anyone’s wishes, but something more like the original Prague Spring that remade the Czech Republic into the vibrant country and society it is today. The Obama administration has been the culmination of the advancement of state intrusion into our lives that began roughly

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation. Prominent members of the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, also sided with the bill’s opponents, who argued that the measure would have allowed people

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

PHOENIX -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed Wednesday a controversial bill that would have allowed businesses to deny services to gays and others based on religious beliefs. The veto of Senate Bill 1062 will likely be met with praise from Arizona´s business community, which called on Brewer to veto it citing potential damage to Arizona´s economy. The Arizona Chamber of Commerce said Monday the bill could hurt tourism, make it hard to recruit new businesses and open the door to lawsuits against businesses. Three Republican state senators also joined thee call for Brewer to veto the bill. On Wednesday, it was reported that

Secretary of State John Kerry today warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to stay clear of the political turmoil in Ukraine, adding that the U.S. doesn´t view the international tussle over the democratic movement in Kiev as a continuation of the Cold War. “We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States. This is not ‘Rocky IV´, believe me. We don´t see it that way,” Kerry said in a reference to the popular film in which Sylvester Stallone’s character is pitted against a Soviet bully.

The attorney for Lois Lerner blasted the House GOP for recalling the former IRS official to testify next week, saying it would only serve to embarrass her and could increase threats against Lerner and her family. Bill Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that he told committee staff in January that Lerner would continue to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if recalled, and that she would "happily testify" if given immunity. Taylor, of Zuckerman Spaeder, said he heard nothing further from the committee until Issa wrote to him on Tuesday, saying he was hauling Lerner

On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden blamed “hatred” as the motivating force behind voter identification laws in states such as North Carolina, Alabama, and Texas. Biden wants new laws to block “former slave holding states in the south” from discrimination against blacks and other minorities. Biden, speaking at a reception at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., in celebration of African-American History Month, said that, "These guys never go away. Hatred never, never goes away.
