Islamic terrorist attacks and deaths hit record high, report shows – Atlas Shrugs

It is mildly amusing watching CNN tie itself into knots trying to distinguish between religious terrorism and political terrorism. Islam is political — it\’s a distinction without a difference. Islam is a complete system: religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military. It is fair to say that the religious aspect of Islam gives it a protection not afforded to other totalitarian systems (i.e. Nazism, communism, etc.).

\”The reasons behind the rise are complex, experts say.\”

No, it\’s not complicated at all. The increase in deadly Islamic attacks is a direct result of our lack of will and resolve in the West, our denial of motive. The refusal of the West to confront jihad head on, coupled with the dehumanization and ruin of those who do speak out and oppose jihad, will most naturally lead to worldwide gains by the global jihad.

The reason behind the rise is Islam. Not poverty — so many jihadis are affluent, educated and devout members of their mosque. The call for a separate Islamic state in the Philippines, Thailand, Israel, Kosovo, Russia, the Caucasus, Somalia, Kenya, Egypt, et al is religious — Islamic imperialism is religious.

Of course, it would not have been at all possible without Obama, who has given the jihadists across the world aid and comfort and sanction.

Terrorist attacks and deaths hit record high, report shows CNN

Washington (CNN) – As terrorism increasingly becomes a tactic of warfare, the number of attacks and fatalities soared to a record high in 2012, according to a new report obtained exclusively by CNN.

More than 8,500 terrorist attacks killed nearly 15,500 people last year as violence tore through Africa, Asia and the Middle East, according to the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism.

That’s a 69% rise in attacks and an 89% jump in fatalities from 2011, said START, one of the world’s leading terrorism-trackers.

Six of the seven most deadly groups are affiliated with al Qaeda, according to START, and most of the violence was committed in Muslim-majority countries.

The previous record for attacks was set in 2011 with more than 5,000 incidents; for fatalities the previous high was 2007 with more than 12,800 deaths.

How DID we get Obama?(someone asked on Twitter)

actually the tweeter asked how did we get the Marxist,meaning Obama?
Easy.

People voted for him because they ‘liked’ him.

Obama said he was going to fundamentally transform America

He said it was good when you spread the wealth around(income redistribution)

He said he didn’t know William Ayers.He threw his preacher under the bus,Rev Wright. Obama said he never heard a word(after 20 yrs).
Then he was re-elected after he said if he didn’t get the unemployment rate down  to vote for someone else.He didn’t but let’s be honest. That was all talk. As we now know the Census Bureau fudged the no right before the election so he could tout his accomplishment. Anyone with a lick of brains knew it didn’t add up.
Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear KNEW the media was covering up for him.In fact you could tell they were campaigning for him.How did ppl miss it?

What about the scandals BEFORE the election? Fast and Furious and Benghazi were right out there. Voters gave him a pass.

They bought the stories. So how did a Marxist-at the least a lawless,corrupt or inept President-get RE elected? People vote for candidates now based on whether they like them or not;cult of personality.The more celeb a candidate has the more likely it is they will get elected.It’s like American Idol now. Forget character,integrity, competence,honesty. Doesn’t matter.As long as people “like” you.How did Obama get elected the FIRST time?
He was the NOT Bush.People hated Bush and even though Obama was not running against Bush(his term was up.DUH)he used Bush to run against. It obviously worked.

It was a historic election.He played that up.

His little foot soldiers played the race card.I know.They were told to “get in our faces” and call us racist if we opposed him.They did.

BTW.They STILL do.

I still believe there was voter fraud involved but the main reason Obama got elected is because voters don’t do their homework.They’re spoon fed. Some ppl didn’t get out to vote.People who stayed home got him elected. People bought his LIES.I can’t fault them too much for that because he’s good at it and he had the media help him. Still,all semi good excuses aside, people should question and look closely at a candidate whether the mainstream media is doing their job or not.(As we know with the state run media, it’s most likely,NOT)When they start praising the person that’s running; red flags should go up. It’s their job to investigate,not promote.If the media looks like their campaigning for a candidate…

wake up

Here’s a heads up. It’s ok to like a candidate but it’s not the main or only reason we should vote for a person.It’s one quality among many.

Sent Email To A Supposed Job Offer

wrote the gentleman as follows:

“no calls,no replies. I checked your site out again.Nothing is up so far.
You were going to send me a blog i wrote that needed correction. Didn’t come.
You were going to call. Didn’t.
Then you said you’d be in touch.Haven’t heard a word since then either by phone or email.
I asked about salary.You told me. I said that was fine.
You haven’t said whether I was hired or NOT.
I’ve really been left in the dark here and very anxious. My husband and I had all our hopes pinned on this,especially with Christmas but even the bills.It would have been fine if you had just told me I was turned down. Nothing.
We’re not well people here.The job was a life line to two people who are limited in what they can do.
The last time my husband made a comment re the job you seemed angry he said anything and the email i sent you re what he thought. Sorry,but he sticks up for me when it comes down to it.
I explained to him that you were very busy and had a lot on your plate but you WOULD be getting back to me.
I don’t know how long Opera will permit ppl to use their email account here.Pls use the live address. Mail.com has been having some serious problems lately.
You can reply here though:__________(new email address i won’t publish here)
I will assume that if this does not get a response from you that I may as well hang it up and we’ll see where we can go from here. I’ve put so much of my hopes on the job that I’m not angry.Just crushed.”
More on the little saga tomorrow. For today I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt but it smells just a tad fishy.I never trust anything on the internet.It’s seldom legit. The person in question here looked above board. Checked out what I could and this one time I went ahead and contacted the person.No money involved(that’s dead)so it seemed like a legitimate job offer.It’s a good rule of thumb that if any ‘company’ requests money up front that it’s a scam. The gentleman made it clear they weren’t asking for a dime. As i said,everything about the offer seemed legit and I like to think the best about people.

Netanyahu_is_unhappy_about_Iran_deal_s640x427

During Hanukkah, the American Jewish community remembers the victory of the Maccabean army led by Judah Maccabee against the invading Hellenic army, the restoration of the Holy Temple and the miracle of the oil in the 2nd century BC.

I don’t think President Obama cares much for Jewish history but he probably should, especially before calling PM Benjamin Netanyahu.

During a phone call between Obama and Netanyahu last week, the president reportedly asked Netanyahu “to take a breather from his clamorous criticism” of the interim agreement reached with Iran, David Ignatius reported for the Washington Post Wednesday.

Obama called Netanyahu last Sunday to discuss the interim deal reached with Iran – a deal the prime minister called a “historic mistake.” After Netanyahu reportedly “rebuked” Obama over the interim deal, he told Obama that the permanent accord “must bring about one outcome: the dismantling of Iran’s…

The symbolism of the Advent wreath is quite beautiful. The circle of the wreath, with no beginning or end and made with evergreens, represents eternity and the everlasting life found in Christ.He is the Alpha and the Omega.
The four candles represent the four weeks of Advent whose progressive lighting expresses the expectation and hope surrounding the coming of the Messiah.

US rolls over on Iran nuke program – by Allen West on November 24, 2013

Nothing good happens late at night, and America just had a modern-day Neville Chamberlain moment. At 3 am in Geneva, Iran and 6 major powers agreed to “temporary relief” of sanctions in return for Iran stopping or scaling back parts of its nuclear program. President Obama has just empowered the number one state sponsor of terrorism, Iran, to pursue its nuclear goals and objectives.

This is not diplomacy, this is abject surrender and appeasement. Iran loses nothing, not a single facility, not any capability to enrich uranium, but we have conceded the one best non-military option: economic sanctions.

President Bill Clinton promised the same in regards to North Korea, and did that have any effect? Not to mention that North Korea has taken an 85-year-old Korean War veteran into detention, and of course we have done…
