Mumbai Terrorists Tortured Israelis Before They Were Murdered

November 30, 2008

HERE are the photos you will not see in The New York Times of the blood-soaked floor of the Chabad house of prayer and hospitality.

The Mumbai terrorists tortured their Jewish hostages before they were murdered.
Rediff.com reported:

Asked what was different about the victims of the incident, another doctor said: “It was very strange. I have seen so many dead bodies in my life, and was yet traumatised. A bomb blast victim’s body might have been torn apart and could be a very disturbing sight. But the bodies of the victims in this attack bore such signs about the kind of violence of urban warfare that I am still unable to put my thoughts to words,” he said.

Asked specifically if he was talking of torture marks, he said: “It was apparent that most of the dead were tortured. What shocked me were the telltale signs showing clearly how the hostages were executed in cold blood,” one doctor said.

The other doctor, who had also conducted the post-mortem of the victims, said: “Of all the bodies, the Israeli victims bore the maximum torture marks. It was clear that they were killed on the 26th itself. It was obvious that they were tied up and tortured before they were killed. It was so bad that I do not want to go over the details even in my head again,” he said.

Corroborating the doctors’ claims about torture was the information that the Intelligence Bureau had about the terror plan. “During his interrogation, Ajmal Kamal said they were specifically asked to target the foreigners, especially the Israelis,” an IB source said.

Figures… WaPo Fluff Piece Uses Lib Think Tank to Praise Obama & Bash Bush

November 30, 2008

Just because the election is over does not mean the media bias was put on hold until the next campaign…
Today, the Washington Post used a lib military think tank to praise Obama and bash Bush:

“Open and serious debate versus ideological certitude will be a great relief to the military leaders,” said retired Maj. Gen. William L. Nash of the Council on Foreign Relations. Senior officers are aware that few in their ranks voiced misgivings over the Iraq war, but they counter that they were not encouraged to do so by the Bush White House or the Pentagon under Donald H. Rumsfeld.

“The joke was that when you leave a meeting, everybody is supposed to drink the Kool-Aid,” Nash said. “In the Bush administration, you had to drink the Kool-Aid before you got to go to the meeting.”

As Macsmind points out, the Council of Foreign Relations is a liberal think tank and that they they quasi-endorsed John Kerry for Prez in 2004 and have asked him to speak at the council regularly.

Maj. Gen. William L. Nash is also a regular Bush-basher who wrongly predicted that the Bush surge in Iraq would not work in June 2007.

The WaPo omitted this from their Obama fluff piece.

Oogedy-Boogedy… Global Warming Religionists Want International Court On the Environment

November 30, 2008

Oogedy-Boogedy
The oceans have been cooling since 2003.
Sea ice is growing at the fastest pace on record.
There are growing fears of a coming freeze worse than the ice age.
Alaskan Sea Glaciers are advancing for the first time in 250 years.
And, for the second straight year the Earth is, in fact, cooling… not warming.

This US Climate Map October 2007-November 2008 shows that temperatures are well below normal throughout the US this year.

But, the fact that global warming predictions were wildly overestimated and inaccurate does not seem to phase the fanatics.

Global warming religionists want an international court to enforce agreements and punish countries who degrade the natural environment.
The Telegraph reported, via Drudge:

Stephen Hockman QC is proposing a body similar to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to be the supreme legal authority on issues regarding the environment.

The first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements on cutting greenhouse gas emissions set to be agreed next year.

But the court would also fine countries or companies that fail to protect endangered species or degrade the natural environment and enforce the “right to a healthy environment”.

The innovative idea is being presented to an audience of politicians, scientists and public figures for the first time at a symposium at the British Library.

Mr Hockman, a deputy High Court judge, said that the threat of climate change means it is more important than ever for the law to protect the environment.

The UN Climate Change Conference in Poznan, Poland this month is set to begin negotiations that will lead to a new agreement to replace the Kyoto Protocol in Copenhagen next year. Developed countries are expected to commit to cutting emissions drastically, while developing countries agree to halt deforestation.

For the record– The planet has cooled significantly since George W. Bush took office.

Obama Will Introduce Hillary as His Secretary of State Monday

November 30, 2008

Obama will announce Hillary as Secretary of State at a news conference on Monday.
The AP reported:

A deal with Bill Clinton over his post-White House work helped clear the way for Hillary Rodham Clinton to join President-elect Barack Obama’s national security team as secretary of state, reshaping a once-bitter rivalry into a high-profile strategic and diplomatic union.

Obama was to be joined by the New York senator at a Chicago news conference Monday, Democratic officials said, where he also planned to announce that Defense Secretary Robert Gates would remain in his job for a year or more and that retired Marine General James M. Jones would serve as national security adviser.

Also… Bill Clinton will cough up the secret donor list that was not available during the campaign this past year.
That ought to be interesting.

Mumbai Death Toll May Reach 300… Bodies Found Piled in Rooms

November 30, 2008

Indian commandos say 150 bodies are still inside the Taj Mahal hotel and dead victims were found on all five floors of the hotel.

Azam Amir Kasav, the captured Mumbai train station killer, says he wants to live.
Azam and his fellow terrorists took a trip to Mumbai months earlier posing as Malaysian students.

Piles of bodies were found in the rooms at the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai. The final death toll may be over 300.
The Telegraph reported:

Piles of bodies were found yesterday after commandos stormed the Taj Mahal Palace hotel, the last of three buildings that terrorists had occupied in the city. Three terrorists were killed in the battle.

The end to four days of carnage came as tensions grew between India and Pakistan over the atrocity.

It is believed that just 10 highly-trained terrorists took part in the attack. Nine were killed and one suspect is under arrest.

British and Indian authorities were yesterday playing down reports that some of the attackers were British, although this had not been comprehensively ruled out.

…The official death toll stood last night at 195, but authorities acknowledge that scores of bodies have not been included in the total. At least 22 of the dead are not Indian nationals, including a Briton, five US citizens and six Israelis. At least 295 people have been injured. Of those, 23 are foreigners, including several Britons.

A final death toll will not emerge until the end of operations to ensure the hotel rooms and corridors are cleared of booby traps. However, S Jadhav, from Mumbai’s disaster management unit, predicted the figure would approach 300.

More than 600 people escaped from the Taj Mahal Palace hotel, the Oberoi-Trident hotel and Nariman House, which were held by the attackers.

Across town the terrorists bound and slaughtered the Jews at Mumbai’s Chabad House.

Al-Qaeda #2 Warns America to Convert to Islam & Give Up Beer

November 30, 2008

In his latest tape Ayman Al-Zawahiri warned America to convert to Islam and give up beer.

Yeah… Good luck with that, Ayman. (Russia Today)
Old Hippie reported:

Al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader appeared in a new video posted Friday calling on Americans to embrace Islam to overcome the financial meltdown, which he said was a consequence of the Sept. 11 attacks and militant strikes in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Ayman al-Zawahri, whose 80-minute recording touched on a number of subjects, also lashed out at Afghanistan’s government and said any U.S. gains in Iraq will be temporary.

Zawahri’s new recording came in the form of a question-and-answer session with an off-camera interviewer.

Appearing in a white turban and robe, Zawahri discussed the roots of the U.S. economic crisis. He said it was a repercussion of the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States, and that the crisis would continue “as long as the foolish American policy of wading in Muslim blood continues.”

“The American economy was afflicted by a downturn and loss of investor confidence in the market following the events of Sept. 11,” he said.

“The modern economy has been destroyed by the strikes of the mujahedeen (in Iraq and Afghanistan) and usury,” he said, using the Arabic term for holy warriors.

Under Islamic Sharia law, usury, like drinking alcohol, is among the grand sins.

Zawahri then called on the American people to “embrace Islam to live a life free of greed, exploitation and forbidden wealth.”

Muslim-Christian Clashes Leave Hundreds Dead In Nigeria

November 29, 2008

About 7,000 people fled their homes and were sheltering in government buildings and religious centres following clashes that left up to 300 dead.

The Muslims thought the elections were rigged and started rioting in Central Nigeria.
Hundreds are dead.
Reuters reported:

Clashes between Muslim and Christian gangs triggered by a disputed election have killed more than 200 people in central Nigeria, the Red Cross said on Saturday, in the worst unrest in the country for years.

The army sent reinforcements to police a 24-hour curfew on the city of Jos, which lies at the crossroads of Nigeria’s Muslim north and Christian south, after rival groups of youths burned homes, shops, mosques and churches.

Hundreds of bodies were brought to the town’s main mosque in preparation for a mass burial.

“I counted 218 dead bodies at Masalaci Jummaa. There are many other bodies in the streets,” said a Red Cross official who asked not to be named.

That death toll did not include hospital figures, victims already buried, or those taken to other places of worship, meaning the final count could be much higher, officials said.

Muslims and Christians generally live peacefully side by side in Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation.

But ethnic and religious tensions in the country’s “middle belt” have simmered for years, rooted in resentment by indigenous minority groups, mostly Christian or animist, toward migrants and settlers from the Hausa-speaking Muslim north.

In 2001, more than 1,000 people died in religious clashes in the city of Jos.

US Troops Kill Taliban Commander In a Burqa

November 29, 2008

The Taliban leader tried to escape the scene in women’s clothing.

But, when he tried to kill US soldiers he was shot dead in his burqa.

US troops today killed a Taliban Commander clad in a burqa in Afghanistan.
FOX News reported, via LGF:

Gunbattles and airstrikes by NATO and Afghan troops killed 53 militants in Afghanistan, including a wanted Taliban commander who tried to hide from soldiers under a woman’s burqa, officials said Saturday.

The U.S. forces targeting the commander surrounded a house Friday in Ghazni province and ordered everyone inside to leave, a military statement said.

Six women and 12 children left the building, but while soldiers were questioning the women they discovered one was actually a man dressed in a burqa, the traditional all-encompassing dress that most Afghan women wear. The man, later identified as the targeted commander Haji Yakub, tried to attack the soldiers and was killed, the military said.

Yakub allegedly directed roadside bomb and suicide attacksagainst Afghanistan’s government and coalition forces in Ghazni, according to the statement. Three other militants were killed in the operation, it said.
