John Kerry, Jihad Coddler


Michelle Malkin

Michelle Malkin poignantly points out the idiocy of the myth that Muslims become terrorists out of abject poverty. The myth runs something like the Muslim world is and has been oppressed by the West economically leaving Muslim individuals a sense of helpless hopelessness for their existence. That the thumb of Western Economic Interests have left Muslims in a state of alienation in their society for seeking a better life for their families. So what is a poverty stricken Muslim to do? Well of course he strikes out at their perceived oppressors: Westerners, Americans, Jews and Christians.

 

This Muslim myth of Western oppression misses the unpleasant fact that the Muslim perpetrators of terrorism come from backgrounds of elite education and/or wealth. This is what Michelle Malkin spells out.

John Kerry, Jihad Coddler

The myth of the poor, oppressed jihadist never dies. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is the latest Obama administration official to peddle this odious narrative. Cue John Lennon’s cloying “Imagine,” don your plaid pajamas, and curl up with a warm cup of deadly naivete.

 

While meeting with Catholic Church officials at the Vatican in Rome on Monday, Kerry expounded on their “huge common interest in dealing with this issue of poverty, which in many cases is the root cause of terrorism or even the root cause of the disenfranchisement of millions of people on this planet.” In other words: If only every al-Qaida and Taliban recruit had a fraction of Kerry’s $200 million fortune, they’d all be frolicking peacefully with infidels on jet skis sporting “Coexist” bumper stickers.

 

This wasn’t a one-off. Kerry delivered a similar Kumbaya-style discourse at the Global Counterterrorism Forum last fall: “Getting this right isn’t just about taking terrorists off the street. It’s about providing more economic opportunities for marginalized youth at risk of recruitment.” Naturally, the Foggy Bottom apple doesn’t fall far from the Pennsylvania Avenue terror-excusing tree. President Obama subscribes to the very same “midnight basketball” theory of counterterrorism. In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, Obama asserted that jihad “grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.”

 

The chronic cluelessness of the root-cause apologists of jihad never ceases to amaze. Britain’s MI5 reported in 2011 that two-thirds of the U.K’s jihad suspects were from middle-class backgrounds, “showing there is no simplistic relationship between poverty and involvement in Islamist extremism.” Thorough reviews of the empirical evidence shows, as the RAND Corporation reported, that “(t)errorists are not particularly impoverished, uneducated or afflicted by mental disease. Demographically, their most important characteristic is normalcy (within their environment). Terrorist leaders actually tend to come from relatively privileged backgrounds.”

 

Here’s a refresher cheat sheet:

 

–9/11 lead hijacker Mohammed Atta went to Hamburg University to study urban planning.

 

–Convicted al-Qaida scientist Aafia Siddiqui is a Pakistani who studied microbiology at MIT and did graduate work in neurology at Brandeis.

 

–Osama bin Laden did a summer school stint at Oxford.

 

–Christmas Day underwear bomb operative Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab was an elite Nigerian engineering student who studied at one of Britain’s leading universities and “lived a gilded life.”

 

–Jihadist Samantha Lewthwaite, the notorious “White Widow” British Muslim convert linked to last year’s Westgate mall massacre in Nairobi, was the daughter of a soldier and a former University of London student.

 

–British-born Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, a London School of Economics student, was convicted of abducting and murdering American journalist Daniel Pearl.

 

–Seven upper-middle-class jihadi doctors were implicated in the 2007 London/Glasgow bombings.

 

–Al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahiri didn’t need more education or wealth to steer him away from Islamic imperialism. He had a medical degree. So did former Hamas biggie Abdel al-Rantissi.

 

–Al-Qaida mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed attended Chowan College in Murfreesboro, N.C., and then transferred to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, where he earned his degree in mechanical engineering along with 30 other Muslims. Mohammed applied his Western learning to oversee the 1993 World Trade Center bombing plot (six Americans dead), the U.S.S. Cole attack (17 American soldiers dead) and the September 11 attacks (3,000 dead). He also has been linked to the 1998 African embassy bombings (212 dead, including 12 Americans), the plot to kill the pope, the murder of American journalist Daniel Pearl and the Bali nightclub bomb blast that killed nearly 200 tourists, including two more Americans. (Bold Print added by Editor)

 

Osama bin Laden, of course, was dedicated to spending every last penny of his inherited Saudi fortune — estimated at between $50 million and $300 million — to wage war on the West. Al-Shabaab jihadists have amassed their own terror campaign chest through the illegal ivory trade.

 

Privileged jihad funders from Qatar and other Gulf states heap their petro-dollars on al-Qaida. The Taliban raised $400 million in one year, according to a 2012 U.N. report, not just from opium, but largely from “donations, taxing local economies and extorting money from such targets as drug dealers, cellphone operators and aid projects.” Indeed, since 2006, “the Taliban have managed to finance an ever-increasing number of attacks, reflecting a year-on-year increase in income,” the U.N. report said.

 

Memo to stupidly rich elitist John Kerry, richly stupid progressive Barack Obama and the administration’s bleeding-heart bureaucrats in a bubble: Financial bankruptcy is not, and has never been, the “root cause” of Koran-inspired hatred and violence against nonbelievers. Lack of intellectual stimulation is not, and has never been, the “root cause” of radical Islam’s centuries-old and never-ceasing imperative to establish a worldwide caliphate and conquer the West. The root cause of civilizational jihad is unmitigated evil and arrogance, not lack of compassion, understanding or social justice.

 

Islamic terrorism never had such dutiful tools as the American fools who rationalize it.

Multiculturalism Harasses Thilo Sarrazin


Thilo Sarrazin 2

John R. Houk

© May 19, 2013

 

This article is a little difficult to read in my opinion; nonetheless the message is clear. A German got himself in hot water over going public that the non-German immigrants of the Turkish and Arab persuasion are increasing via the birthrate exponentially enough to overtake the homegrown European Germanic culture. And as that immigration population grows they are the ones that tend to live on the German government welfare.

 

That German is Thilo Sarrazin who has been a prominent German politician and now an important Executive Board Member of the German Bundesbank which is the central bank of the Federal Republic of Germany and as such part of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB).  

 

Evidently Sarrazin is both controversial and popular in Germany because of this book he wrote in 2010 which in English is rendered “Germany Abolishes Itself: How We Are Risking Our Country”. (I noticed Wikipedia has a different translation of this title: “Germany Is Doing Away With Itself”.)

 

This article is entitled “UN Pressures Germany to Bow to ‘Hate Speech’ Hysteria”. Evidently an agency of the United Nations the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) is the anti-Free Speech agenda to squash opinions such as those presented by Thilo Sarrazin. Here is an excerpt of the CERD mission from its website:

 

The Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) is the body of independent experts that monitors implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination by its State parties.

 

All States parties are obliged to submit regular reports to the Committee on how the rights are being implemented. States must report initially one year after acceding to the Convention and then every two years. The Committee examines each report and addresses its concerns and recommendations to the State party in the form of “concluding observations”.

 

In addition to the reporting procedure, the Convention establishes three other mechanisms through which the Committee performs its monitoring functions: the early-warning procedure, the examination of inter-state complaints and the examination of individual complaints.

 

The Committee meets in Geneva and normally holds two sessions per year consisting of three weeks each.

 

The Committee also publishes its interpretation of the content of human rights provisions, known as general recommendations (or general comments), on thematic issues and organizes thematic discussions.

 

For more information about the work of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, click here.

 

The CERD decision placing pressure on the German government is 19 pages. You can read the entire pdf English translation document; however I think you can get the gist of how the U.N. is imposing Free Speech suppression according to how Americans view Free Speech from this small excerpt:

 

3.3 The petitioner argues that since Mr. Sarrazin is the former Finance Senator of the Berlin Senate and member of the Board of Directors of the German Central Bank, his authority leads to the perception that his statements are based on proven facts and, therefore, “the truth”. It adds that the effects of Mr. Sarrazin’s statements enhance prejudices of the majority towards the Turkish population and individuals of Turkish heritage, including their children. The petitioner submits that such racially discriminatory statements are not covered by the right to freedom of expression because the concerned group has a right to live without prejudices and general intolerance, and the freedom to exercise their rights should be respected. The statements made by Mr. Sarrazin should be assessed in the framework of the special social context of Germany, adding to the general pattern of incitement to racial hatred against the Turkish population, which in the circumstances can be even more dangerous than openly flaunted racism, which is easier to combat. With the termination of the investigation against Mr. Sarrazin, the petitioner claims that it was arbitrarily denied protection against racially discriminatory statements directed against it as a group of individuals of Turkish heritage and as the representative of this group and the propagation thereof represents a violation of articles 2 (1 (d), 4, (a) and 6.

 

So here’s the thing. The U.N.’s CERD is forcing Germany to comply with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to prohibit all forms of criticism of Islam which is responsible for most of the world’s global terrorism.

 

Oops! I just violated U.N.’s campaign to protect Islam. Oh well, I’ll get over it.
