Egypt´s President Mohamed Mursi said on Wednesday spiteful remarks he made against Jews and Zionists in 2010 had been taken out of context. "As I have said before the quotes were taken out of context... I am not against the Jewish faith, I am not against Jews who practice their religion," Mursi told a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin. "I was talking about the practices and behavior of believers of any religion who shed blood or who attack innocent people or civilians. That´s the behavior that I condemn." "I am a Muslim. I'm a believer and my religion

If you really want to see how bad 0bama & Hillary´s new friend is, just read this. He is describing the bloodlust rules of HIS Muslim Brotherhood. It is important to understand that he´s going home from Germany, missing France, because his people are not buying another cruel government [while they can]. Another Arab Spring may be approaching.
We see how Muslim leaders who are Islamists treat Christians and Jews. In Yemen the government tried to allow Jews who were on their own land stay but they were powerless in the face of their own people who drove all their native Jews out. In Iran you can legally BE a Christian, but woe to you if anybody knows it. And it is illegal (a death penalty) to BECOME a Christian once born of Muslim parents. In the Saudi Kingdom you may not practice any other religion in PUBLIC. No Bibles can enter. Many roads are ´´Muslim only.´´ In Egypt all the means of making a living were denied to all Coptic Christians even under Mubarak. But since the MB took over even gathering and sorting and recycling TRASH is made impossible. But, hey!, you´re ´´free´´ to be of some of the Jewish faith.
What irony that a Muslim anti-Semite should have to try to double talk his way around his anti-Semitic remarks to appease a German chancellor. Who could ever have imagined such a thing during or even after the Nazi era?
One has to wonder if there is something really wrong with Muslims who can say with a straight face "I was talking about the practices and behavior of believers of any religion who shed blood or who attack innocent people or civilians. That´s the behavior that I condemn." Do they think the rest of us don´t know that 99% of the religious and political killings in the world today are committed by Muslims in the name of Islam - many of them, we should never forget, against other Muslims? Do they think we are stupid?
The look on Angela Merkel´s face reveals more than words can say. Mursi is a disgusting, despicable liar. This kind of blatant dishonesty is reminiscent of Hitler before he acquired absolute power - although Hitler never made any bones about his anti-Semitism. His challenge was to dig his way out of what he had written down for everyone to read in "Mein Kampf" and to reassure people who were getting nervous that he was actually a committed peace lover who could never so much as dream of offensive war. Some of his pre-1939 speeches on peace and disarmament are truly moving.
It is no coincidence that "Mein Kampf" in Arabic translation has apparently always sold well.
Since Obama has come in moral certitude has been exchanged for limp noodle waffling. Radical muslims are on record saying that USA is stupid and to tell the "truth" to your people and just lie to them [Americans]. Obama needs no reason to question Morsi but Im sure hes releived Morsis lies are swallowed up by an eager MSM. Adolph would be proud.
I think this just proves zippy is muslim. Or maybe all libs are muslims. They condemn in others exactly what they do. Biggest hypocrites on the planet. These people can save they condemn violence against innocents? That is the whole basis of islam. I despise these barbarians.
"President Mursi"? So Morsi´s been overthrown? What?
Sure wish this bunch would get the spellings straight.
#3: Thanks for mentioning "Mein Kampf." Consider these thoughts, friends: "Mein Kampf" often is translated as "My Struggle," or "My Fight." Sound familiar? We hear "jihad" referred to as "a personal struggle." Just an effort to be a better Muslim. That´s all. Yep. Yep. Sure. Got it. Religious war? Oh, no, no, no. Where´d you ever get that crazy idea?
"Hitler originally wanted to call his forthcoming book Viereinhalb Jahre (des Kampfes) gegen Lüge, Dummheit und Feigheit, or Four and a Half Years (of Struggle) Against Lies, Stupidity and Cowardice. Max Amann, head of the Franz Eher Verlag and Hitler´s publisher, is said to have suggested the much shorter "Mein Kampf or My Struggle"." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mein_Kampf --------------
History seems capricious at times. Perhaps "Four and a half years of Struggle Against Lies, Stupidity and Cowardice" would not have sold as well. But "Mein Kampf" was not exactly a blockbuster when first published, either. That changed in a big way when the Nazis came to power. During the Third Reich, in many circles not owning and displaying a copy could arouse suspicion.
The curious parallel with Islam is that Hitler spelled out his thinking, values, and what he planned to do long before the Nazis came to power. The book was readily available to all nations and future victims since its publication in 1926. Similarly, everything anybody needs to know about Islam is right there in the Koran, copies of which are everywhere. It is worth keeping in mind when one makes such comparisons that Islam has been around a lot longer and made many more conquests -most of them permanent- than the Third Reich ever did. From a certain perspective one might even term Islam a true Thousand Year Reich in potentia. Islam is infinitely more dangerous to the world than the Nazis ever were. Liars and apologists like Mursi and the incredible, almost insane denial of large sectors of the Western intelligentsia are one reason why. It is an old story, same manure, different flies.
The muslums get their superiority complex from the Koran saying it´s the latest and greatest! Because the Koran is the late comer it has 700 more years of man´s political influence that it´s the least valid!
Shifts in climate are strongly linked to increases in violence around the world, a study suggests. US scientists found that even small changes in temperature or rainfall correlated with a rise in assaults, rapes and murders, as well as group conflicts and war. The team says with the current projected levels of climate change, the world is likely to become a more violent place. The study is published in Science. (Snip) Their examples include an increase in domestic violence in India during recent droughts, and a spike in assaults, rapes and murders during heatwaves in the US.
Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has vowed in a video released Wednesday to break out Muslim prisoners from US penitentiaries and the heavily fortified compound for terrorist suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The blustery threat to retaliate for US "crimes" against al-Qaeda warriors was probably inspired by recent attacks on prisons in Iraq, Libya and Pakistan that freed more than 2000 detainees, many of them allied with the global terrorism network that has been headed by Mr al-Zawahiri since the 2011 assassination of its founder, Osama bin Laden.
President Barack Obama is returning to The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Obama will appear on the Aug. 6 broadcast of NBC´s late-night talker, which would mark his sixth time and the fourth appearance since becoming president. According to NBC, Obama plans to discuss jobs initiatives and the economy during his visit. Previous Tonight Show appearances were Dec. 1, 2006; Oct. 17, 2007; March 19, 2009 — marking the first time a current president appeared on a late-night talker; Oct. 25, 2011; and Oct. 24, 2012. Obama has made the late-night rounds over the years,
An American international politics publication has reported that the US Air Force plans to dispatch fighter jets and tanker aircraft to northern Australia in the next year. Foreign Policy magazine said it was part of a US strategy to dramatically expand its air defence presence across the Pacific and South-East Asia. (Snip) In a breakfast media briefing, he is reported saying the US would send "fighters, tankers and, at some point in the future, maybe bombers on a rotational basis" to Darwin. General Carlisle is reported to have said the aircraft would initially go to the RAAF base in Darwin
Most fishermen are guilty of the odd photobrag, but none can match this bloke´s cockiness. The Victorian fisherman celebrated catching a huge shark by climbing inside the gutted fish, poking his arm through its gills and posing for a joke shot with his knife buried between its eyes. In a world where every angler is pictured next to his prize catch with a thumbs up, it´s becoming increasingly difficult for intrepid fishermen to stand out. But this guy - let´s call him the Shark Slayer - certainly managed it. ´Arch´, who works at the Metung Hotel in Gippsland, was present when the photo was taken.
Washington - U.S. spy agencies plan to release newly declassified documents as early as this week about the National Security Agency surveillance programs revealed by former contractor Edward Snowden, and also material related to a secret intelligence court, a U.S. intelligence official said on Tuesday. (Snip) The documents would also include information about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the official said. That court operates in secrecy in making decisions on government surveillance requests. The Washington Post reported late Tuesday that senior U.S. officials said one of the orders
Washington - President Barack Obama has asked two senior Republican senators to travel to Egypt to meet with its military leaders and the opposition, as Cairo´s allies struggle with how to address the turmoil convulsing the country. (Snip) U.S. officials have been grappling with how to respond to the situation in Egypt since its elected Islamist president, Mohamed Mursi, was ousted by the military on July 3. In particular, they have struggled with how to handle the $1.55 billion in mostly military aid Washington sends to Cairo each year. Egypt has long been an important U.S. ally
In a significant victory for law enforcement, a federal appeals court on Tuesday said that government authorities could extract historical location data directly from telecommunications carriers without a search warrant. The closely watched case, in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, is the first ruling that squarely addresses the constitutionality of warrantless searches of historical location data stored by cellphone service providers. Ruling 2 to 1, the court said a warrantless search was “not per se unconstitutional” because location data was “clearly a business record”
Washington - Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday that Israeli and Palestinian negotiators would convene again in the Middle East within two weeks and that their goal would be to work out a comprehensive peace agreement within nine months that would lead to an independent Palestinian state. (Snip) “Our objective will be to achieve a final status agreement over the course of the next nine months,” Mr. Kerry said. “We all understand the goal that we’re working towards: two states living side by side in peace and security.” As they resume peace talks that have been moribund since 2010,
Three former high-ranking Penn State officials, including the university’s former president, Graham B. Spanier, were ordered Tuesday to stand trial on charges that they were part of a cover-up related to the child sexual abuse scandal involving the former football coach Jerry Sandusky. After a two-day preliminary hearing this week, Harrisburg District Judge William Werner decided there was enough evidence against Spanier, the retired university vice president Gary Schultz and the former athletic director Tim Curley to proceed with a trial, which could start later this year.
Anti-Christian extremist groups like the ACLU, the Freedom From Religion Foundation and People for the American Way hate God. They also hate America. True America. These "progressive" outfits - along with like-minded politicos, judges, Hollywood elitists and left-wing media-types - hate that this great nation was expressly founded upon the bedrock precepts of the Judeo-Christian tradition. And so, in response, they lash out. They endeavor first to raze our God-blessed America, and then raise, from the rubble, a godless America fashioned in their own secular-socialist self-image.
Last week, Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R.) sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.), “informing Senator Reid that we will not vote for a continuing resolution that funds Obamacare,” risking a government shutdown if Lee’s objectives are not achieved. While eleven other Senate Republicans have signed on to Lee’s letter, other Republicans are denouncing the move in surprisingly direct language. “It’s not an achievable strategy…and it’s dishonest,” said Sen. Tom Coburn (R., Okla.). “It’s the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard of,” added Sen. Richard Burr (R., N.C.).
Colin Powell has admitted to exchanging ´very personal´ emails with a Romanian diplomat but denies having an affair with the much younger woman after a hacker threatened to release their intimate messages. The 76-year-old retired general told the Smoking Gun that he met Corina Cretu, 45, roughly 10 years ago when she was working as an assistant to the president of Romania. She is now a member of the European Parliament. ´After I left the Department of State in January 2005 we stayed in touch via email,´ he told TSG.
CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya. Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret. CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy
The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.
American scientists claim the planet is undergoing one of the largest changes in climate in the past 65 million years. Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.
About 400 area retail and fast-food workers, together with colleagues nationally, participated in a strike Thursday to demand raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. “If not $15, then something. I mean give us something. I work 36 hours a week and barely make enough to pay my rent, gas bill, light bill. It gets to the point where I barely have enough for lunch sometimes,” said Angel Richardson, 21, who works at McDonald’s. “I’m five months pregnant, what am I going to do in four months? I hope something changes.” The minimum wage is $7.25 nationally and $8.25
Executive Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Mark Glaze gave some ambiguous and potentially dangerous self defense advice Friday on “Hardball.” Glaze, speaking in opposition to “Stand Your Ground” laws, said in a circumstance where someone “comes at you” with an axe handle one should attempt to either “talk,” “fight with your fists,” “run away,” or “deescalate the situation,” but not shoot the attacker: MARK GLAZE: Very often somebody will come at you. They might want to have a fistfight. They might come at you with an ax handle. CHRIS MATTHEWS: Would you consider the guy with the ax handle armed or not?
Citing a potential al Qaeda attack, the State Department on Friday issued a worldwide travel alert and warned American citizens that the terrorist group may be plotting a strike in the Middle East, North Africa or elsewhere. “Current information suggests that al Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” reads a portion of the alert, which lasts until the end of the month.
The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape
Government workers in the city of Seattle have been advised that the terms "citizen" and "brown bag" are potentially offensive and may no longer be used in official documents and discussions. KOMO-TV reports that the city´s Office of Civil Rights instructed city workers in a recent internal memo to avoid using the words because some may find them offensive. "Luckily, we´ve got options," Elliott Bronstein of the Office for Civil Rights wrote in the memo obtained by the station. "For ´citizens,´ how about ´residents?´"
Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) suggested on Friday morning that the tea party movement is comprised of the same types of people who fought against the civil rights movement during the 1960s. Speaking with the Daily Beast, Rangel said of the movement: “It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked. He added that the tea party movement can be defeated similar to how the civil rights movement eradicated Jim Crow mentality: “It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused
The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."
Congressional investigators this week released emails suggesting that staff at the Federal Election Commission have been engaged in their own conservative targeting, with help from the IRS´s infamous Lois Lerner. This means more than just an expansion of the probe to the FEC. It´s a new link to the Obama team. In May this column noted that the targeting of conservatives started in 2008, when liberals began a coordinated campaign of siccing the federal government on political opponents. The Obama campaign helped pioneer this tactic. In late summer of 2008, Obama lawyer Bob Bauer took
