Conflict between Two Englishwomen and Three Jihadis Caused "Major Delay" on Airliner

A Thomas Cook Airlines flight originally scheduled to take off at 1:25 a.m. on July 12 experienced a major delay because of a pair of perturbed women who informed the crew that they refused to fly with three "disgusting" Muslim men on the plane, claiming




R.C.: Perhaps it's because these British women have experienced the misogyny of Muslim males?

I worked with two very intelligent lesbians a few years ago.  One graduated high school at age 16.  The other was a chemical engineering graduate of UC Berkeley, one of the world's best chemical engineering programs.  Both were computer programming experts.  The older one was a Microsoft certified instructor.

Both women despised males from India.  Males, not females.

Why?

Because they had to personally deal with the misogyny of Indian males.   The younger one had even visited India for business.

Yes, I know, not Muslim.

But ask British victims of "grooming" about their opinions of Muslim males.

The Siege of Vienna and Eastern Europe’s "Subconscious Fear" of Islam

The Siege of Vienna and Eastern Europe's 'Subconscious Fear' of Islam




Raymond Ibrahim is a Freedom Center Shillman Fellow and the author of Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West.
"Austria acts against Muslims almost every day because of their subconscious fear of Turks," writes Turkish historian Erhan Afyoncu.  "Austrians have not forgotten the fear and their emperor's escape in the Battle of Vienna in 1683. When Turks were defeated in the Battle of Vienna, Europeans were so happy…"
This is true.  As such, a brief refresher on the Siege of Vienna—the anniversary of which is today—is in order:
The largest Islamic army ever to invade European territory—which is saying much considering that countless invasions preceded it since the eighth century—came and surrounded Vienna, then the heart of the Holy Roman Empire and longtime nemesis of Islam, on July 15, 1683.
Some 200,000 Muslim combatants, under the leadership of the Ottomans—the one state in nearly fourteen centuries of Islamic history most dedicated to and founded on the principles of jihad—invaded under the same rationale that so-called "radical" groups, such as the Islamic State, cite to justify their jihad on "infidels."  Or, to quote the leader of the Muslim expedition, Grand Vizier Kara Mustafa, because Vienna was perceived as the head of the infidel snake, it needed to be laid low so that "all the Christians would obey the Ottomans."
This was no idle boast; sources describe this Mustafa as "fanatically anti-Christian." After capturing a Polish town in 1674 he ordered all the Christian prisoners to be skinned alive and their stuffed hides sent as trophies to Ottoman Sultan Muhammad IV. (Snip That is not all folks)

Remember, Lest We Forget

"It is this history of Islamic aggression—beginning in the fourteenth century when Muslims first established a foothold in Eastern Europe (Thrace), and into the twentieth century when the Ottoman sultanate finally collapsed—that informs Eastern European views on Islam.  As one modern Pole, echoing the words of Sobieski, said, "A religious war between Christianity and Islam is once again underway in Europe, just like in the past."
"Whereas Western nations cite lack of integration, economic disparities, and grievances to explain away the exponential growth of terrorism, violence, and sexual assaults that come with living alongside large, resistant-to-assimilation Muslim populations, Eastern nations tend to see only a continuity of hostility."
=====
Reminds me of a quote from a former Israeli Intel head to an early July assemblage of European ambassadors to Israel — from an article [...] shared a couple of weeks ago:
Brig. Gen. (Res.) Yossi Kuperwasser [director of JCPA (Jewish Center for Public Affair)'s Project on Regional Middle East Developments and former head of the IDF Military Intelligence Research Division, in a speech to a gathering of European ambassadors to Israel in Tel Aviv on July 4, 2019] on the threat muslims pose to Europe: 
"Kuperwasser called out European governments for not properly dealing with the extremist organizations already operating in their countries, noting that indoctrination towards violent extremism is rampant in Islamic education in Europe, in the European prison system and among converts to Islam . . . Kuperwasser also warned against turning a blind eye to what he called 'soft' radicalism. Issues that might not seem problematic now, he said, could become much more so in the future . . . many Muslims adhere to an Islamic doctrine that calls for them to be less aggressive while living under the sovereignty of non-Muslims, with the belief that they will later become rulers themselves."
"Just because they currently live as a minority in Europe," he said, "does not mean that Muslims have given up the idea that Islam should one day be in the majority."
And at the same conference, a further dose of Eastern European reality as regards Islam --- from Czech ambassador ambassador Martin Stropnicky:  
"...most of the people that are immigrating [to Europe] now do not want to accept our cultural milieu, but want us to accept theirs. And that is not acceptable."  ("European ambassadors seek insight from Israel on coping with global migrant crisis, JEWISH NEWS SYNDICATE, July 9, 2019):
Here is the website for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JPCA), which sponsored the study "Migration into Europe: An Existential Dilemma" and the related workshop or conference for European leaders earlier this month. There you can also download a 9 MB PDF file of the study itself.  
 

Republican: I'm Telling Democrats How to Beat Trump in 2020. It's Job One so Get over It.

Subject: Re: Republican: I'm telling Democrats how to beat Trump in 2020. It's Job One so get over it.
 
I'm more interested in this op-ed author's view of reality:
 
And yes, as someone staunchly opposed to what Donald Trump is doing to America's institutions, ..
==
 Every American who believes in the basic foundations of the American experiment, things like the rule of law, the Constitution and an apolitical Justice Department, 
 
 
What.  A.  Moron.  (Of course, the density of morons in the American electorate is pretty high, so Trump's getting re-elected strikes me as anything but a sure thing.)
 
Trump has cooperated with ridiculous "investigations" ("investigation" has become the most pompous, overused word in English) and complied with preposterous court orders (that I would have ignored if I were president).  Meanwhile, here's a list I put together a few years back about the administration of Pres. Pants-on-Fire ["Obama"]:
 
1. Interfering with routinely valid contracts in Chrysler's bankruptcy.  (Bondholders must be made whole before anyone else gets paid; instead, he strongarmed the creditors so that the union got a better deal than the bondholders.)
2. The words-fail-one travesty/connivance/venality of passing the 2010 health-care law and then -- for purposes of political advantage or even re-election survival --  violating the same "signature" law several score times.
3. "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing," to impose central cities' dysfunction on suburbs by taking zoning authority away.  For just a hint on this, see   http://www.vdare.com/posts/affirmatively-destroying-respectable-neighborhoods
4. Recess appointments made when the Senate wasn't in recess.  Flagrantly unconstitutional.
5. He's a racial arsonist, egging on "Black Lives Matter" and all the other lethal nonsense manufactured over the violent deaths of young black thugs like Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, plus all the bullshit about differential incarceration rates being a result of "racism."
6. With a looming midterm election in mind, keeping companies with fedgov contracts that would be negatively affected by a potential fedgov shutdown from notifying their employees of the possibility, said notification being required by law.
7. Trying -- succeeding in some cases -- to force private entities to provide health-care coverage for their employees that violate fundamental principles of the imposed-upon organizations.  Personally, I'm an atheist and abortion doesn't upset me, but when it comes to the treatment of Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters, I'm a Christian, even a Catholic.
8. The fraudulent and enormously dangerous Iran deal and all the chicanery associated with it.


9. The refusal to acknowledge Islam as the source of Islamic terrorism, and the related attempted ruination of fedgov employees who are trying to honestly do their jobs.  See Philip Haney's recent book See Something? Say Nothing.


10. "Fast & Furious"


11. His administration's vile treatment of Israel.  (I'm half-Jewish -- my father's side -- but don't consider myself Jewish at all.  Nevertheless I'm totally with Israel, regarding it as an outpost of civilization in a sea of barbarism.)


Those are all off the top of my head.  You'll find lots more in Andrew McCarthy's 2014 book Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama's Impeachment.  (McCarthy was the lead federal prosecutor in the successful case against Omar Abdel-Rahman ["the blind sheikh"], for setting in motion the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.)


There are also his personal qualities, perhaps better termed "characteristics," since "quality" hints at approbation: He and his wife have an enormous sense of entitlement; they are manifestly what Tammy Bruce came up with: malignant narcissists.

Republican: I'm telling Democrats how to beat Trump in 2020. It's Job One so get over it.

Enough with the progressive wish lists, just focus on winning. The next president is everyone's business, and we can't afford to screw it up. Again.
There is an old saying that it is permissible to walk with the devil when crossing a narrow bridge. Welcome, progressives, to the 2020 presidential election.
First, let's get one thing out of the way. Yes, I'm a Republican. And yes, as someone staunchly opposed to what Donald Trump is doing to America's institutions, I'm going to give Democrats advice on who they should be nominating for president.
Like it or not, the Democratic party has had greatness thrust upon it. Every American who believes in the basic foundations of the American experiment, things like the rule of law, the Constitution and an apolitical Justice Department, now has a stake in who Democrats nominate in 2020 So please stop telling fellow travelers like me to mind our own business and start taking on board some of what we are saying. The next president of the United States is everyone's business, and we can't afford to screw it up. Again.
Trump is enough to fire up Democrats
America needs you to focus. Democrats' first thought in the morning and their last thought when they fall asleep at night should be, "How will this play in Erie, Pennsylvania?"
There are four states that matter in 2020: WisconsinMichiganPennsylvania and Florida. Win three out of four of those states and Trump is a one-term president. No matter how popular something might be with activists in Los Angeles or donors in Manhattan, it's dead weight or worse if it isn't a winner with Rotary Club members in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
So don't treat this like a base election. Democrats are already guaranteed a nominee that will excite their base and drive a big turnout. His name is Donald Trump. Getting activists "excited" by bold policy positions is a waste of time. You could get every Democrat in California so excited that they all voted twice and it would make not the slightest difference to the outcome of the election. All that matters is getting voters in Michigan who have become uncomfortable and disenchanted with Donald Trump to vote for you once.
The people you really have to motivate aren't the Democratic base, they're the people in the middle who have been unsettled by Trump's presidency. They can see what Trump is and will happily vote for a reasonable alternative. But if Democrats offer what appears to them as a choice between death by hanging and death by firing squad, a lot of them will just give up and not vote at all.

Far-left ideas will boost Trump 

Democrats could, however, easily expand this four-state map — for the Republicans. Want to put MinnesotaColoradoNevada and New Hampshire in play? Easy. Just run on policies like eliminating private health insurancereparations for slaverylegalizing drugs and decriminalizing prostitution. Every one of these projects has been pushed by one or more Democratic presidential candidates. There may be things to be said for all of these issues. And someday, we should have a serious policy debate about them. Today is not that day.
Those legendary soccer moms are still out there and, by and large, they have had enough of Trump's antics. But if you want to run on far-left positions like, say, resurrecting forced busing, they're going to stick with the devil they know rather than vote for someone who promises to do things like send their kids on 30-mile bus rides every day.  
This doesn't mean Democrats can't run on progressive policies. Talk about fixing and expanding Obamacare, if you want. Talk about universal pre-kindergarten. Talk about guaranteed parental leave. If it's OK with those voters in Erie, it's OK with me.
Progressives keep trying to convince themselves that people are sick and tired of what's going on in this country. They are half right. Americans are tired. They're tired of the endless rancor, the name-calling and the lies. They're tired of the frenetic insanity of the last few years and the unprecedented attacks on America's institutions. Americans don't want to burn down the system. They want to put the fire out. Progressive activists may be angry but most of us are just exhausted.

Don't mess this up for America

Democrats have one job in 2020: Beating Donald Trump. Nothing else matters. If progressives manage to mess this up by insisting on hard-left positions and ideological purity, they will own Trump's second term. There is a time and a place for everything. When the ship is sinking and you find yourself in a lifeboat, you don't argue about where you want to go, you head for the nearest land. Further travel arrangements can wait until you're back in civilization.
The 2020 election is not a normal election. It isn't going to be about progressives and conservatives. It's going to be about those who believe America's democratic institutions are more important than the politics of the day and those who are willing to wreck them for short-term political gain. We who choose to stand with our democratic institutions need to keep our eye on the prize. We can't afford the self-indulgence of standing on principle and going down in glorious defeat.
Or rather, we must all stand on one overriding principle, that we must install someone with respect for the rule of law and reverence for our constitutional system of government as the next president of the United States. That will require compromise from all of us. The bridge is long and narrow, but cross it we must.
