Been Delightfully Away on Vacation... while the world explodes.

Hiking on Mt. Shasta... while the world explodes.

Home now, and can highly recommend the following items, gleaned from various sources, and also recommended by others. Many of these items arrived in my box even before the Muslim attacks on civilian train passengers in India, which killed several hundred and left many hundreds more mutilated and injured. And before the Hezbollah terrorists made a major attack in Northern Israel, launching Katusha rockets and killing many soliders in an additional unprovoked attack into Israel's territory. They are certainly living up to their claims, of wanting to kill every Jew they can lay hands upon. This fits well with their stated philosophy which parallels that of old Nazi directions -- of Jewish extermination, Holocaust denial, revisionist history, world domination, religo-racialist superiority ideology, paranoid conspiracy theories about the world plotting against them (while they launch the most incredible of plots themselves), delusions of grandeur (ie, a New Islamic Caliphate ruling the world) and so forth. The Koran is their "Mein Kampf" and marching orders, filled as it is with open calls for world conquest and murdering of the non-Muslim -- and they read the original Hitler book as well, broadcasting such vile hatred daily on their radio, television and newspapers. As I have said previously on many times, this situation will get worse, if only because the way the Islamic world severely abuses their kids and structures their families towards violence outbursts directed outside its own culture, leads to predictable outcomes. This is no less, than if one was to identify a large snowball rolling down a mountain side, and calculate its mass, speed and altitude, measuring the slope of the land, and then knowing the gravitational force, one could predict with certainty when it would crash into the sleeping village below in the valley. This will get worse. For those who haven't yet done so, read the 2nd Edition of my Saharasia for the full details and "awful truth". J.D.

The Israel enigma
By Victor Davis Hanson
What explains most of the world’s dislike of Israel?
Since Israeli settlers withdrew from Gaza in 2005, Palestinian terrorists have replied by consistently shooting homemade Qassam rockets at civilian targets inside Israel. Just recently, they’ve kidnapped a soldier and a hitchhiker (who has been killed) — and promised to do the same to others.
You’d expect these terrorist attacks on Israel to be viewed by responsible nations as similar to the jihadist violence we read about daily around the world — radical Islamists beheading Russian diplomats over Chechnya, plotting to do the same to the Canadian prime minister or threatening murder over insensitive Danish cartoons.
But that isn’t the case at all. Israel is always seen as a special exception that somehow deserves what it gets.

A New "New Left"?
By Jamie Glazov | July 14, 2006
Can there be a new "New Left"? Some members of the Left believe there can be -- and that is why they have created the Euston Manifesto, a new document that makes an attempt to tie the Left with the traditions and institutions of liberal, pluralist democracy and rejects the anti-Americanism that now permeates much of the Left.

Heil, Professor!
By Phil Orenstein | July 14, 2006
Far too little attention has been paid to addressing the fundamental role that ideological indoctrination in classrooms and lecture halls has played in delivering the atrocities of Nazism to the world. The German university was the ideological originator of Nazism, turning romantic racial myths and superstitions about Germany and the Jews into a systematic “scientific” body of knowledge that gave rise to Nazi racial policy and justified the horrors of the Nazi atrocities. Professors and academics with multiple Ph.D.s eagerly collaborated with the Nazi leadership and selected who was to be sterilized and who lived or died for the glory of the Volk, advocated which races were to be exterminated and which nations were to be invaded and conquered for lebensraum.

From Honest Reporting
Special Report - Israel Under Fire

A look at some of the myths and facts following Hezbollah's attack on Israel.
Israeli military operations in Lebanon are taking place in response to an unprovoked border attack which left 8 Israeli soldiers dead and two kidnapped by the Hezbollah. Since then many more Israelis have been wounded and killed by over 700 Katyusha missiles and mortars that have rained down on Israel's northern cities, including as far south as Haifa and Tiberias. Israel is exercising her legitimate right to self-defense. ....

Monsters of Palestine
In exchange for 3 Israeli soldiers, Hezbollah and Hamas are again demanding a mass release of their prisoners, including one Samir Kuntar. Exactly, who is Samir Kuntar?
This article originally appeared in the Washington Post.
Abu Abbas, the former head of a Palestinian terrorist group who was captured in Iraq on April 15, is infamous for masterminding the 1985 hijacking of the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro. But there are probably few who remember why Abbas's terrorists held the ship and its 400-plus passengers hostage for two days. It was to gain the release of a Lebanese terrorist named Samir Kuntar, who is locked up in an Israeli prison for life. Kuntar's name is all but unknown to the world. But I know it well. Because almost a quarter of a century ago, Kuntar murdered my family.
It was a murder of unimaginable cruelty, crueler even than the murder of Leon Klinghoffer, the American tourist who was shot on the Achille Lauro and dumped overboard in his wheelchair. Kuntar's mission against my family, which never made world headlines, was also masterminded by Abu Abbas. And my wish now is that this terrorist leader should be prosecuted in the United States, so that the world may know of all his terrorist acts, not the least of which is what he did to my family on April 22, 1979. ...

Hateful Chatter Behind the Veil
By Omar El Akkad and Greg McArthur
Globe and Mail | June 30, 2006
MISSISSAUGA — When it came time to write up the premarital agreement between Zakaria Amara and Nada Farooq, Ms. Farooq briefly considered adding a clause that would allow her to ask for a divorce.
She said that Mr. Amara (now accused of being a leader of the alleged terror plot that led to the arrests of 17 Muslim men early this month) had to aspire to take part in jihad.
"[And] if he ever refuses a clear opportunity to leave for jihad, then i want the choice of divorce," she wrote in one of more than 6,000 Internet postings uncovered by The Globe and Mail.
Wives of four of the central figures arrested last month were among the most active on the website, sharing, among other things, their passion for holy war, disgust at virtually every aspect of non-Muslim society and a hatred of Canada. ...
