Sid Hindy Fart the Pog.

WOW, did we ever make a big mistake in our reportage. It turns out the Muslims are all innocent and so too is Sid Vicious Ryan. I hope they cut off my head. Good chance of it, actually.


Alvin Chand, brother of Toronto suspect Steven Vikash Chand, scoffed at the charges outside the courthouse as several officers held surveillance positions on surrounding rooftops and a helicopter circled.

"He's not a terrorist, come on, he's a Canadian citizen," Chand said of his brother. "The people that were arrested are good people. They go to the mosque. They go to school, go to college."

Aly Hindy, an imam at the Salaheddin Islamic Centre in east-end Toronto, said the centre's mosque had been monitored by security agencies for years. He said Muslims were once again being falsely accused.

"It's not terrorism. It could be some criminal activity with a few guys, that's all," said Hindy.

"We are the ones always accused."


The Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations issued a release condemning terrorism "in all its forms" but also reminded that the accused are presumed innocent.

The father of accused Shareef Abdelhaleen, a 30-year-old computer programmer from nearby Mississauga, said the charges made no sense.

"I am shocked," said the Egyptian immigrant who came to Canada with his son 20 years ago and is an engineer on contract with Atomic Energy of Canada.

"It's crazy. It has no meaning whatsoever."

Well, I'm convinced!

And what about Sid Vicious Ryan of CUPE? He's a fookin' saint!

"CUPE boss explains reasons for boycott."


We have a history of supporting just causes at home and abroad. That is why our members, at their 2003 national convention, supported a resolution calling on the Israeli government to withdraw immediately from the occupied territories and to abide by the UN Resolution 242 and 338. As well, they agreed to actively work toward an end to all acts of violence that take the lives of innocent people, whether they be Palestinian or Israeli.

But they are frustrated with a government that continues to construct a wall that was declared illegal in 2004 by the International Court of Justice. They voted with many church congregations, a large number of organisations in Quebec and other unions around the world to support a boycott campaign against Israel.


National Post, June 3, 2006: p. A17


OK, I'm bored. I'm not typing anything else from his letter.

But I like this line so much I'm reprinting it just because:

"It's crazy. It has no meaning whatsoever."

I so dearly want to hang Sid Vicious. Of course, the Muslims are all innocent. Sid is innocent too, as we read above, but I want to hang him anyway. Before they cut off my foolish head.

Fightin' words to strange fruit

It must be a small minority of extremists who've hijacked our nations and turned them into madhouses of Left dhimmi fascism. These vile bastard Leftists who do so much to destroy the lives of all are not done yet. Canada today. France today. Sweden, Norway, Germany, Britain. The world is engulfed in a mental illness of sentimentality, philobarbarism, and sanctimonious hatred for its own sake. It's mostly a pose struck by losers. You, racist, it is you who cause the troubles in the world. It is you, imperialist, who are the problem. Colonialist, it is you who are at fault and you who must pay.

Rage? We will see the fruit of rage. It is strange fruit that will hang from trees.

Native protest imperils 'rule of law'
hearing: Lawyer calls for use of force in Ontario land dispute

Adrian Humphreys, National Post Published: Friday, June 02, 2006

CAYUGA, Ont. - A judge, fearing that native blockades were destroying the "rule of law" in his community, forced nearly a dozen lawyers into his rural Ontario courthouse yesterday for a highly unusual court hearing.

As more than a dozen Ontario Provincial Police officers ringed the historic courthouse in Cayuga, about an hour's drive southwest of Hamilton, almost as many lawyers gathered inside before Justice T. David Marshall, the senior Ontario Superior Court judge for the area, to answer pointed questions on why native protests and blockades remained despite court orders and injunctions.

Highlighting the deep divide on the issue, amid the pleas of patience and peace, Judge Marshall heard: that negotiating with natives was like trying to appease Adolf Hitler prior to the Second World War; a suggestion that the protesters were dangerously close to being terrorists; and a call to "shoot the media."

The public peace has been deteriorating in nearby Caledonia since a small group of native protesters from the Six Nations reserve occupied a dusty subdivision construction project in late February, claiming the land rightfully belonged to them. Two court injunctions ordering protesters off the property were ignored.

After a dawn raid by the OPP on April 20 to arrest those still at the site, angry native protesters descended by the hundreds to retake the land. Other protesters then blocked a rail line, main streets and a bridge in support. Caledonia residents have since held counter protests, attracting hundreds who called on the government to end the blockades.

Violence has been simmering.

An OPP officer has been hit in the head by a bag of rocks.

A bridge was burnt down. A road was torn up by a backhoe, and the electrical system was brought down by a series of fires.

Police are investigating 25 criminal charges from the dispute, court heard, including assault on police, kidnapping, theft, arson and mischief endangering life.

"The rule of law has been suspended, to some degree," said Judge Marshall in explaining why he took the unusual step of ordering all parties involved in the disputes to his courtroom to explain the failures and search for solutions.

"I am seeking your assistance -- I mean that in the most sincere way -- to help the court; to help the community."

And from the lawyers he heard some of the passions involved.

Edward McCarthy, a lawyer representing the Haldimand Law Association, expressed the frustration of the Caledonia residents. He said the native protests "almost seem" to fall under the government's definition of a terrorist act and then compared negotiations to the failed policy of allowing Hitler to expand Nazi Germany by just a little to avert a war.

"This may seem like a harsh thing to say and it may involve a use of force, but at some point there needs to be a stand for the rule of law," Mr. McCarthy said, adding the protests had to end, "forthwith, by force if necessary."

His remarks drew a rebuke from Denise Dwyer, a lawyer representing the OPP, who called them "fighting words."

She was joined in objecting to Mr. McCarthy's stance by Darrell Doxtdator, a lawyer who is the senior political advisor to the Chief of the Six Nations Council. He angrily told off Mr. McCarthy, but then turned his ire toward reporters. "To paraphrase Shakespeare, 'Shoot the media,' " he said.

Others, however, said there was a need to quell inflammatory statements and work toward a negotiated settlement.

Owen Young, a lawyer for the Attorney-General of Ontario, suggested the court orders should not be acted upon too readily while negotiations appear to be making progress.

He said "rule of law" was not only reflected in court orders but in maintaining public peace and accommodating customary law of the native people.

Much frustration was directed toward Jim Prentice, the federal Minister responsible for Indian Affairs.

In the end, Judge Marshall ordered all parties to return to his court on June 16 and issued an "invitation" for Mr. Prentice and the federal government to attend.

Meanwhile, fears were expressed that other native protests might be brewing.

"Yesterday, native protesters set up an information picket at the Brantford Casino claiming the site as theirs," said Bob Runciman, provincial Conservative justice critic, in the Ontario legislature. "As you may know, the first step towards the Caledonia land occupation, now in its 94th day, was a similar information picket."

"As in Caledonia, we will look at the situation," replied Gerry Phillips, Minister of Government Services.

Native protest imperils 'rule of law'

Lewis Allen/Billie Holiday

Southern trees bear strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.

Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.

Galatians 6:7: "Be not deceived. God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."

"Hush, Betar," says Nicolai Czerniakow

Sarkozy warns French Jews not to defend themselves. Muslims run riotous across France and commit murder. Muslims drop mircrowave ovens from rooftops on policemen, fire-bomb them in their vehicles, shoot them. Muslims run riotous in the streets and rob, beat, rape, and smash, loot and burn. Sarko says "Do nothing."

I'll repeat this. This is the Judenrat leader of the Warsaw Ghetto:

Adam Czerniakow committed suicide on July 23, 1942 when he was pressured to hand over Jewish children to be deported to their deaths. It is reported that he left a note: "They are demanding that I kill the children of my people with my own hands. There is nothing for me to do but die."

French Jews Feel Abandoned. Tension in Suburbs
From the desk of Paul Belien on Wed, 2006-05-31 20:14

Today the French authorities closed down the website of "Tribu Ka", a group of French black Muslims. The website contained anti-Semitic texts [some of which are quoted here]. Last Sunday evening about thirty members of Tribu Ka, armed with bats and sticks, staged a march through the Rue de Rosiers in the historic Jewish quarter of Paris, shouting "Death to Jews" and "Let the Jews fight us if they dare!"

Tensions between black Muslim immigrants and French Jews have been rising since another black gang, who call themselves "the Barbarians," kidnapped Ilan Halimi, a 21-year old Jew, last February. Halimi was tortured for three weeks and subsequently murdered. Youssouf Fofana, the imprisoned leader of the gang that murdered Halimi, is acclaimed as a hero by groups such as Tribu Ka. Tribu Ka was founded by Kami Saba [Kémi Séba], a black Parisian who says he has been inspired by the Black Muslims in the United States.

Though a police officer admitted that the authorities knew the "tribe" was going to march through the Jewish neighbourhood last Sunday, as "it had been announced on the Tribu Ka internet site," twenty minutes lapsed before the police arrived. According to a Jewish source a senior police officer, called to account by angry inhabitants of the Rue de Rosiers, said that the police "had received instructions from the top not to intervene." The French authorities apparently did not want to provoke the thugs. As a result some Jews openly wonder whether the Jewish community should not organize its own militia.

The authorities fear that provoking the thugs could trigger a new round of urban violence, similar to last November's riots, in predominantly immigrant suburbs of major cities across France. The situation in the "banlieus" appears to be tense again. On Monday night around a hundred youths clashed with French police after setting fire to cars and rubbish bins in Clichy-sous-Bois, a Parisian suburb that was the scene of violence in November.

.... As in November, the immigrant "youths" want to make it clear that their law rules in the suburbs, not the law of the French Republic.

"They are demanding that I kill the children of my people with my own hands. There is nothing for me to do but die."

Sarkozy, take a hint.

PCUSA fascists must hang.

The poem below strikes me as a form fit to an occasion. I had a hunch some years ago, and I counted the words. It comes in at 50. It's a poet's exercise. I happen to like it as both. I've run it here before, as with my expressions of hatred of the Presbyterian Church USA. Yes, dear reader, I might have gone so far in the past as to have suggested that God invented lamp posts to hang these people from. This poem below sums up nicely the Presbyterians in question and also some vile creature named Sid Vicious Ryan, leader of the Canadian Union of Public Employees-- go on, name the lot of them if you choose, these filthy things. These are the haters who hate because they like it more than life. I would hang them to death from lamp posts. They are murders, if only by accessory. There worst crimes are not against themselves, evil as that is, but against the world of Human beings who have no crime to account for. Ryan and Ufford-Chase and more and many more are killers. I would hang them because they are evil and it is justice to hang them. Make no mistake: when the sane and decent people of this world regain control of civil society I will be at the courthouse door demanding death for Ryan and Ufford-Chase and their lot. As the San Patricios were hanged, so too will be the fascists of today for treason and murder of innocents, and I will swing on their feet as they choke to death at the ends of ropes. Murder demands justice, and that justice is hanging. Look at those I will hang:

Stephen Crane (1871-1900)

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter - bitter," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart."

In 50 words Crane sums up the mind of the Left dhimmi fascist. The suffereing of the Palestinian! People!? Forget it. It's bullshit to all concerned. Ryan and Ufford-Chase and the lot do not care a damn about The! People! They love their hate. They feed off it. I will hang them for the crimes they've committed.
These creatures, naked, bestial,
squatting upon the ground feast on hate and the blood of others to satisfy their vanities and their hatreds. They love their hatreds more than life. Fine. I will hang them.


Not all Christians are scum, of course, but Ufford-Chase and too many of his Presbyerian dogs are nothing but. The following comes via

Divestment is a Costly Mistake

Dear Fellow Presbyterians:

"My brethren, show no partiality as you hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory." (James 2:1)

PCUSA Moderator Ufford-Chase, with unanimous approval of the General Assembly Council, has recommended the creation of a seven person study group to examine the Middle East issue for another two years. Under this proposal, the 34 divestment overtures advanced by individual churches through their presbyteries would be referred to committee. The Israel divestment resolution approved in 2004
would continue unabated while this study group does its work. Thus, the will of numerous anti-divestment presbyteries would be thwarted at least two more years, while national church leadership would continue to drain our coffers in pursuit of a biased political agenda.

Presbyterians, neither the Israeli Government nor the American Jewish Community can stop this assault on Israel. It is our problem – and our responsibility. With the General Assembly (GA) approaching June 15, now is the time for you to act by contacting the GA Commissioners from your presbytery. Please do not delay. Your 217th GA Commissioners' names are listed here, and your presbytery office has the contact information for them. These Commissioners need to be informed that many concerned Presbyterians are opposed to referring these urgent overtures to a study group; they want the 2004 divestment resolution rescinded now.

Friends, it is our obligation to stop this divestment. Not only is this divestment action based on biased and unfounded antagonism towards Israel, but the costs to our church are staggering. The Middle East resolutions passed by the 216th and prior General Assemblies have created a network run amuck of headquarters staff, GA committees, and outside organizations receiving PCUSA funding.

In November 2005, many Presbyterians faxed a letter to Stated Clerk Clifton Kirkpatrick and Executive Director John Detterick which asked pertinent questions about the PCUSA's actions in the Middle East. Neither Kirkpatrick nor Detterick responded.

With no answers forthcoming from the PCUSA leadership, concerned Presbyterians took it upon themselves to study the obvious and hidden costs imposed upon the PCUSA membership of funding our church's anti-Israel actions. Click here to read the estimated costs for the period 2001-2006.

The amount of money spent by the PCUSA leadership to organize and now defend Israeli divestment is in the millions of dollars. If you include money donated to organizations and individuals that support an anti-Israel agenda, the number rises to tens of millions. Proponents of divestment are likely to challenge these figures, but whatever the exact numbers, the amount already spent is distressing, and the prospect of this ongoing hemorrhage alarming.

Who has paid for this biased and unfounded propaganda against Israel? We have, through our contributions to per capita and special offerings.

The General Assembly annual budget is around $100 million. The per capita assessed by 2.4 million members in the 11,000 churches generates about $12 million. The four Special Offerings collected from church members (Peacemaking, One Great Hour of Sharing, Joy, and Pentecost) generate about $20 million. The balance of the GA annual budget is funded from benevolences and earnings and draw downs of the endowments and trusts under the GA's control. As the estimates show, our leadership has directed 4% of the national budget to staff, committees, and outside organizations dedicated to promoting a propaganda attack on Israel.

Members have already left the PCUSA because of the divestment resolution, and if this expensive process is not stopped now, more members could leave. In addition, many churches are already curtailing their per capita and special offerings contributions and more churches are expected to stop sending money to Louisville.

Has not divestment already been proved to be a costly mistake for the Presbyterian Church USA? How much more are the members of the PCUSA willing to bear? Will the churches say "enough is enough?" We pray the churches in their collective wisdom will issue a clarion call to the 217th GA to stop divestment now.

"He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much. If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will entrust to you the true riches? And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who will give you that which is your own?" (Luke 16:10-12)

I obey legitimate laws of legitimate nations. As much as I would prefer to summarily hang the Presbyterians who are committing murder as you read this, I will continue to obey the laws. And when the laws change and legitimate laws demand justice, there I will be ready and waiting. I'll ask those to be hanged: "Is it good friend?"

Sarko, Ka, Betar.

Sarkozy: [I]t is not for the Jewish community "to organize your own security. Nothing would be worse than provocations of an anti-Semite group that spurs ... reactions of self-defense."

I can think of a few things worse than provocations that spur Jewish self-defence: Dhimmitude and murder, for two. Jews not defending themselves is a bad thing. We'll look below at the story of the Ka loonies we posted on recently, and then to the yoots who are also "provocative."

French interior minister looks to break up black supremacist group that invaded Jewish neighborhood

By PHILIPPE SOTTO (Associated Press Writer)
Associated Press

PARIS - French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy vowed on Wednesday to silence a little known black supremacist group that invaded Paris' Jewish quarter over the weekend, making anti-Semitic remarks.

But Sarkozy, on a visit to the neighborhood, warned Jews not to take the matter into their own hands with self-defense groups.

A band of blacks who call themselves the Ka Tribe invaded the French capital's Jewish quarter and its main thoroughfare, the rue des Rosiers, on Sunday. Police said they made anti-Semitic and intimidating remarks. An investigation was opened.

Sarkozy ordered the group's Internet site closed on Monday, and by Wednesday it was down.

Addressing the Jewish community from a local school, Sarkozy said he is looking for ways to break up the Ka Tribe.

"I don't want a single Jew here to be afraid ...," the minister said. "The fear of a single Jew is a mark on the Tricolor flag" of France.

However, he added, it is not for the Jewish community "to organize your own security." "Nothing would be worse than provocations of an anti-Semite group that spurs ... reactions of self-defense."

Sarkozy was apparently referring to groups like Betar, an activist Zionist youth movement, and the Jewish Defense League. Media reports said the band was looking for the leaders of the two Jewish groups' on Sunday.

The rue des Rosiers, in the ancient Marais district, is a symbol of the Jewish presence in Paris and the site of a 1982 bombing that killed six people.

Sarkozy said the Ka Tribe's "ideology is sickening ... stupid, confused and the only thing that is clear is that it is anti-Semitic."

The Ka Tribe first appeared in December 2004, founded by a man who identifies himself as Kemi Seba. Jews, Arabs and whites are forbidden from taking part in its meetings, according to French media reports.

Several newspapers quoted Seba as saying that the goal of the group - which Sarkozy said was made up only of some 30 people - "to put the black people there where they should be, that is, at the head of humanity."

"Unemployed youth." The following piece comes from the world socialist web. I've deleed some of the usual cliches but have left the details of yoots attacking the police Sarkozy expects will defend the Jews. Good luck.

Unemployed youth clash with police in Paris suburbs
By Rick Kelly and Chris Marsden
1 June 2006

Nicolas Sarkozy, France's interior minister, has deployed hundreds of extra police to outlying Parisian suburbs after two nights of conflict between unemployed youth and the authorities

That night, youth burned cars on the Bosquets estate, which houses one-third of Montfermeil's population and is 50 percent immigrant. Some 100-150 youth, some armed with baseball bats, fought riot police for more than four hours. Nine police were reportedly injured in the clashes.

The next night there were disturbances on a smaller scale in the neighbouring Parisian suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois, including an attack on the local police station. Four police officers were reportedly injured. The latest eruption of violence on the outskirts of Paris testifies to the extreme social tensions in the city's impoverished suburbs. The predominantly Arab, black and immigrant areas are marked by mass unemployment, as high as 60 percent for young people in some districts.

The Troksyites don't argue the facts, only the interpretation. Fair enough. It's the government that has it's head right up it's sand. If the police are under attack by yoots, then why are the Jews supposed to rely on them for anything more than traffic tickets?

The Betar Movement is a revisionist Zionist youth movement founded in 1923 in Riga, Latvia, by Ze'ev Jabotinsky. Betar members played important roles in the fight against the British during the Mandate, and in the creation of Israel. It has been linked to Herut and Likud and is part of the secular right of Israeli politics.

The name Betar stands for "Brit Yosef Trumpeldor". Joseph Trumpeldor was a Jewish fighter who fell in the battle of Tel Hai coining the phrase: "Never mind, it is good to die for our country".

Jabotinsky also wanted to connect the name of the first Jewish fighter after 2000 years to the name of the last fort of Jewish uprising against the Roman Empire in the Bar Kokhba's revolt, showing that Betar was intent to create a new generation of Jewish warriors.

During World War II, Betar members, former Polish officers, founded Żydowski Związek Walki (Jewish Fighting Union) which fought in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

In the struggle for Israel's freedom from British occupation, many Betar members fought in the Irgun underground militia against Brititsh rule. Some graduates from Betar Poland even joined Abraham Stern's more radical Lehi group.

In France, members of the Betar have clashed with pro-Arab supporters. The Betar offices were bombed by the leftist FLNC, a Corsican militant organization.

On José Bové's return from a protest in Ramallah, members of Betar assaulted the anti-globalisation activist.
[Wikipedia excerpts.]

The leader of the Warsaw Judenrat, the Jewish community in the ghetto, killed himself. Most Jews didn't have such a luxury.

Adam Czerniakow committed suicide on July 23, 1942 when he was pressured to hand over Jewish children to be deported to their deaths. It is reported that he left a note: "They are demanding that I kill the children of my people with my own hands. There is nothing for me to do but die."

Well, what's it coming to? Do the Jews of France and the rest of Europe rely on Sarkozy and others to deal with the situation? What about the rest of the French, the rest of the Europeans and others, the Koreans, the Thais, the people trapped in Europe's sink-hole cultures? Is Sarko's cape going to defend them all?

He Walks in Darkness

"Achilles absent was Achilles still."

We go into our 20th meeting this evening in Vancouver, Canada this evening at 7:00 pm at Vancouver Public Library to sit in the atrium and discuss our plans to defeat dhimmitude, jihad, and the fascist Left around the world. Where, we wonder, will you be?

Many have come a long way from the privacy of their daily lives and personal concerns to the point that today we spend much our own lives dealing with foreign concerns of religion and politics that we likely would not care to if life were to leave us to our own preferred pursuits. Islam? It bores me to tears. Fascism? I can't stand thinking about it. Socialism? I get frustrated and disgusted hearing the nonsense. Our privacy is invaded, and our publicity demands us to rise up to reclaim it. Our private lives are not our own anymore as they once were. We are drawn into war against our wishes, and now we sit on a far shore awaiting battle. We are actually waiting for you.

Where, Achilles, have you gone?

Ours, though we did not choose it, is a good fight. We are called to battle. Life itself calls us to battle. Our private lives are now part of the whole of our nations and our people. We are called upon.

"The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them. Thou shalt multiply the nation, Thou shalt increase their gladness; They will be glad in Thy presence as with the gladness of harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. For Thou shalt break the yoke of their shoulders and the staff of their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, as in the battle of Midian. For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult, and the cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, as fuel for the fire."

(Isaiah 9: 2-5).

We chatter in the darkness and squat down chewing our knuckles, waiting. We see the light as we sit in the caves of the mind, know it's shining for us, and we hold back. The hero lurks. He walks in dark places.

We have a great thing to do and we will pay a great price for victory. What a blessing we might have for the taking.

"At last is Hector stretch'd upon the plain,
Who fear'd no vengeance for Patroclus slain:
Then, Prince! You should have fear'd, what now you feel;
Achilles absent was Achilles still:
Yet a short space the great avenger stayed,
Then low in dust thy strength and glory laid."

Homer, The Iliad, Bk. 22.

Your absence disturbs us. We meet in public weekly, Thurdsday evenings, 7-9:00 pm in the library atrium. We assemble for battle. We await you. Call from your camps.

Go now. Go. Go do some great thing.

Black Racists Rampage in France

A Black racist anti-Jewish group exists in France, the Tribu Ka, some gang of lunactics fashioned after the Nation of Islam in America. So far as I know they are not directly receiving aid from the Canadian Union of Public Employees. Over the weekend, as CUPE was spewing its anti-Semitic hate, Tribu Ka members were going one better, though perhaps to less real effect. Below is the story of the racists in France. I strongly urge our readers to turn to an extraordinarily well-presented piece from Western Resistence linked at bottom for a full and detailed look at CUPE's evil brothers in ideology.

Sarkozy visits Jewish neighborhood after threat from Black extremists

By Shirli Sitbon in Paris
Updated: 31/May/2006 16:5

PARIS (EJP) --- French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy has ordered increased police protection and more patrols in a Paris Jewish neighborhood, during a visit Wednesday afternoon three days after a group of Black extremistes threatened Jews.

The men, belonging to an underground group called Tribu-KA appeared in the small commercial street of Rue des Rosiers, shouting "death to Jews" and saying they were searching for members of the Jewish right-wing groups Jewish Defence League and Beitar.

Sarkozy, who is a 2007 presidential election candidate, has been considering visiting the Marais neighborhood since he was alerted on Sunday's anti-Semitic incident.

The minister met on Monday with Jewish community leaders who informed him of the incident and, according to EJP sources, advised him to wait before he came to Rosiers street, fearing such a visit would encourage the extremist group.

"The state's duty is to protect all its citizens and among them the Jews," Sarkozy said after meeting with shopkeepers.

He added "nothing would be worst than if Jews started to defend themselves on their own," calling Tribu-KA's ideology "delirious".

Sarkozy admitted that police took a long time to arrive to the quarter. On Sunday, police arrived only 20 minutes after it was alerted by shopkeepers.

A police office located less than a hundred metres from Rue des Rosiers was recently closed.

A French right-wing leader, Philippe de Villiers, was also expected to visit the Marais only a few minutes before Nicolas Sarkozy.

Legal action considered

On Tuesday the Interior Minister had asked the Justice Department to examine law suit options against the Black extremist group which marched through quarter.

In a letter addressed to Justice Minister Pascal Clement ,Sarkzoy said the group may be indicted for racist incitement.

"The public prosecution opened two investigations following the incident," Sarkozy said. "The group could be targeted as a whole and its members indicted separately."

He said he aimed for the group to be dissolved using the 1936 law on private organised combat groups but that it would be extremely difficult since this type of procedure was rarely implemented.

Sarkozy explained why no gang member was arrested. "On a penal aspect, the men from Tribu-Ka stayed on the edge of the acceptable. They couldn't be indicted for what they did on Sunday."

The minister and the Justice department declared Tuesday that the group's Internet site might be prohibited as a first measure against Tribu-KA.

According to the minister Tribu-KA clearly stated in its internet site ( that it had violent intentions toward members of the right-wing Jewish groups Jewish Defence League and Beitar.

Comparing JDL members to cockroaches, Tribu-KA wrote: "We will search for you anywhere, multiplying, for as long as it takes, our patrols."

As Justice minister Clement ordered an investigation on the matter on Tuesday morning the general prosecutor's office of Paris began evaluating the procedures it would recommend, Tribuka's site was already out of order.

According to the umbrella organisation CRIF, the minister said it would be harder to disband the Tribu-KA itself.

Several organisations, such as SOS Racism and the French Union of Jewish Students have asked that Tribu -KA would be dissolved.

Militant group

Tribu Ka, an organisation created in December 2004, is opposed to all contacts between blacks and non-blacks.

In February 2005 a dozen young men and women claiming to be part of the Tribu Ka infiltrated a meeting of the Jewish-black friendship association and vigorously advised the Jews to cease all contacts with their "Khemite brothers".

They also accused the Jews of being the descendants of slave-traders, an accusation repeated by controversial comic Dieudonne Mbala Mbala, who is one of Tribu Ka see as an inspiration.

Here is the link to the piece on Tribu Ka.

Paris: Riots In Suburbs, Threats By Black Muslim Group, Tribu KA

This is some fine work.

The French Disease.

France is having a chilly Spring this year.

"All we need is a pretext for everything to begin again," said Joana, 15. Like other youths in the neighborhood, she refused to give her surname, saying she feared that discussing the situation with a journalist could lead to trouble with police or with her peers.

Patrick Hamon said by telephone: ``It is too early to say what this might become.''

"It's impossible to deny the evidence: this was premeditated,"
said Sarkozy.

Time will tell what my crystal ball cannot: The state of France is crumbling into mental illness before our eyes, and the French cannot see it. It is obvious to any who give a moment's thought to France that the Muslims therein will continue their rampages until they are stopped by main force. Yes, there is a large, perhaps a huge segment of the French population who feel that the Muslims can be bought off. Some placebo might effect the course of history. No, it won't happen. The Muslims are feral. The violence will continue. Below we see, if only for the record, yet more of what promises to be another fevered saison en enfer.

May 31 (Bloomberg) -- French riot police, facing stone- throwing youths in two Paris suburbs for the second night, arrested a teenager who was hurt in the incident that sparked France's longest urban unrest last year, police said today.

Yesterday's riots began about 9:30 p.m. in Clichy-sous-Bois and, later, in Montfermeil, two poor suburbs 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of the French capital. It was in Clichy-sous-Bois that the 2005 unrest started.

Muhittin Altun, 18, was held last night with 12 others for throwing stones at police and is still in custody, police said. In October, Altun was badly burned by an electric shock when he and two friends hid from pursuing police in an electrical sub- station. The other two died in the incident which sparked three weeks of car-burning and other violence throughout France.

``I will not let them wreak havoc in Clichy, I will not let them wreak havoc in Montfermeil,'' Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy told police in the Seine-Saint Denis department. ``I will not let them wreak havoc on French territory.''

More than 380 extra police have been deployed in the two towns. Six of them were hurt in clashes and about a dozen cars were burned last night, police said. A police helicopter carrying a searchlight hovered over Montfermeil, seeking gangs of youths and material hidden on rooftops that could be used as missiles.

``The government is both very vigilant on everything that concerns security of people and their goods, particularly in this area but also in all sensitive areas,'' government spokesman Jean-Francois Cope said after the weekly cabinet meeting.

`Not a Crisis'

``Last night was not a real crisis, it wasn't that violent,'' police spokesman Patrick Hamon said by telephone. ``It is too early to say what this might become.''

The previous night, more than 100 youths battled with police, injuring seven officers.

``The specter of riots returns every time police go into action,'' Alliance police union chief Jean-Claude Delage told Le Figaro daily. ``We must not give in to this blackmail. It's the people who live there who are the first victims.''

The latest clashes, that ended at around 1:30 a.m., came as judicial investigators planned a reconstruction today of the electrocution in the Clichy-sous-Bois substation that sparked the riots last Oct. 27.

``We've let entire ghettos grow in our country,'' Socialist Party leader Francois Hollande said on France 2 television. Hollande said Sarkozy bore responsibility for the clashes, accusing the Interior Minister of encouraging conflict in anticipation of his bid for the French presidency next year.

In November, more than 10,000 cars and 200 buildings were torched or damaged across France in neighborhoods with large immigrant communities and youth unemployment of more than 30 percent.

Some 15 youths attacked police forces with rocks and projectiles in a housing project in Clichy-sous-Bois about 9 p.m. on Tuesday. The officers responded with tear gas and rubber bullets, and arrested a number of assailants, including Mr. Altun, a national police spokeswoman said. The youths also burned a number of vehicles, including a police car in which four officers were sitting when it was attacked, the police spokeswoman said. They escaped unharmed.

At about 11 p.m., a group of 30 young people started throwing rocks at a police station in neighboring Montfermeil, where the unrest had resumed on Monday night in the wake of the arrest of a local youth earlier in the day.

The situation had calmed down in both towns by about 1.30 a.m. today, the police said. Mr. Altun was arrested about 10 p.m. and released 12 hours later. He is to appear in court at the end of August. Mr. Altun spent more than a month in the hospital for the severe burns he suffered....

"Some youths can be throwing projectiles from the roofs. A microwave oven, sometimes chimneys they take apart and throw into the streets. It's not a particularly unusual thing for us to do," the police spokeswoman said.


A poll in the popular daily Le Parisien in late January found that 82 percent of the French thought no real solution had been put in place for deprived neighborhoods and 86 percent feared that the violence could resume "in the coming months,"

Regional authorities of the Seine-Saint-Denis prefecture denied the events were linked to the November riots, describing them as "sporadic incidents which, unfortunately, regularly accompany the work of police officers."

Mr Sarkozy said the violence in Montfermeil was not a spontaneous occurrence but a well-orchestrated strike.

"More than 100 troublemakers set upon you, masked and carrying weapons," he said. "It's impossible to deny the evidence: this was premeditated."

The Left ideologues are in a frenzy of name-calling as per usual. Those of us who demand action against Islam in the West and beyond are roundly condemned as racists, on no grounds whatsoever, while the hate-filled fascist lunatics of the Left commit crimes against Humanity with near impunity.

"...82 percent of the French thought no real solution had been put in place for deprived neighborhoods and 86 percent feared that the violence could resume " 'in the coming months.' "

This was premeditated. There is no cure coming from the socialists' cabinet. When the French cabinet is emptied of snake oil and jizya we will see the cure in all it's skulls and crossed bones. What we see in France is our own future mirrored.We suffer the same illness. Our cure is as is the cure fro the French. Will we swallow it in time to prevent our worst from coming out?

We Hang Our Own

I've written on occasion that we would be right to hang certain members of the Presbyterian Church of the USA's top leadership. One might still hear the old expression, "Hanging's too good for him." I witnessed a hanging once. It made me sick and disturbs me still, and forever, I imagine. Yet, there are some of ours I claim deserve nothing less.

Years ago I wandered around San Angel asking the location of the memorial to the San Patricios. Not one in thousand Mexicans knew what I was asking for. Eventually, an Austrian showed me the plaque I wanted to see.

Next day I stood at Castillo Chapultepec, faced San Angel, and waved my little American flag.

By the 1840s a significant proportion of the enlisted men in the United States Army were Catholic immigrants from Ireland and Germany. The Mexican government, aware of prejudice against immigrants to the United States, started a campaign after the Mexican Warqv broke out to win the foreigners and Catholics to its cause. The Mexicans urged English and Irish alike to throw off the burden of fighting for the "Protestant tyrants" and join the Mexicans in driving the Yankees out of Mexico. Mexican propaganda insinuated that the United States intended to destroy Catholicism in Mexico, and if Catholic soldiers fought on the side of the Americans, they would be warring against their own religion. Using this approach, the Mexicans hoped to gain 3,000 soldiers from the United States Army. In November 1846 Gen. Antonio López de Santa Annaqv organized American deserters with other foreigners in Mexico to form the San Patricio Battalion, or St. Patrick's Company, a name it probably received from its Irish-American leader, John Riley, formerly a member of Company K of the Fifth United States Infantry. The company saw action at Monterrey, again near Saltillo, and at Buena Vista, each time receiving praise for its thorough job. The most important conflict came at the battle of Churubusco in August 1847.

By July 1, 1847, Santa Anna gathered enough deserters and foreigners to organize two San Patricio battalions of 100 men each. As American forces rapidly approached Mexico City, Santa Anna divided his forces into three armies to guard several entrances to the city. One of these, commanded by Gen. Gabriel Valencia, was surprised by the Americans at Contreras and defeated. Santa Anna then decided to concentrate his forces at Churubusco, where there was a fortified bridgehead and a Franciscan convent. He stationed the San Patricio companies with a battery of five cannons on the bridge. The American forces advanced from the south and the west covering one side of the fort. Although they suffered heavy casualties, the Americans continued to advance. Suddenly they noticed a drop in gun fire as they made their cautious approach. With his supplies running low, Santa Anna now ordered one company of San Patricios into the fort, along with another infantry company and a wagon of ammunition. The cartridges in the wagon, however, were the wrong caliber for all the weapons except those used by the San Patricios. From inside the fort the San Patricios manned three of the seven cannons. (Later some said that their gunfire was aimed at former officers.) The Americans continued to press on, forcing the second company of San Patricios and other Mexican soldiers into the convent. Reportedly, Mexican soldiers inside the convent tried three times to raise the white flag, but the San Patricios, desperate because of their fate if captured, tore it down. At last Capt. James M. Smith of the Third Infantry entered and put his own handkerchief on the pole. Once back with the United States Army, the San Patricio company did not fare well. Gen. Winfield Scott issued General Orders 259 and 263 establishing two courts martial for seventy-two deserters. Col. John Garland convened the first court martial on August 23, 1847, in Tacubaya. Col. Bennet Riley, an Irish Catholic officer, convened the second court martial at San Angel on August 26. Only two defendants did not receive the death sentence, one excused because of improper enlistment in the United States Army, the other because he was deemed insane.

When General Scott received the verdicts for approval, the Mexican people faced him with cries of outrage at the treatment of their soldiers. After considering appeals from the archbishop of Mexico, the British minister to Mexico, and a number of foreign citizens resident in Mexico City (including United States citizens), Scott reevaluated the courts martial, giving close attention to the Articles of War. Scott issued General Order 281 on September 8, 1847, and out of the twenty-nine men tried at San Angel, twenty received the death sentence. John Riley, the leader, technically deserted before the war between Mexico and the United States was declared, so he could not be hanged. He received fifty lashes and the letter "D" branded on his cheek. Scott issued General Order 283 several days later concerning the trials at Tacubaya, confirming the death sentence for thirty San Patricios, and allowing the same considerations he had with the group before. Several of the men received pardon due to their relatively young age; and one man was pardoned because he was not a willing deserter, but had been kidnapped by the Mexicans while he was drunk. Sentences for the men tried at San Angel were carried out in that village on September 10; sentences from Tacubaya were executed in the village of Mixcoac on September 13. The latter sentences were carried out under the command of Col. William S. Harney,qv who had the condemned men fitted with nooses at daybreak and then left them standing on the gallows while the battle for Chapultepec Castle raged nearby. The men were to be hanged when the United States flag was raised over the castle; United States troops took Chapultepec several hours later, at 9:30 a.m. The sentences imposed on the San Patricios outraged the Mexican public. In Toluca Mexican authorities prevented rioters from trying to retaliate against American prisoners of war.

This did not end the story of the San Patricios. Mexico continued its dubious recruitment of deserters and by March of 1848 had found enough original San Patricios and new deserters to form two more companies. Mexico did not forget its San Patricios still held by American authorities and continued bargaining for their release. However, it wasn't until the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgoqv was signed, and the war ended, that the fourteen remaining prisoners were released. The San Patricios continued as a group, providing support by patrolling areas of Mexico to protect the people from bandits and Indians. They later became involved in revolts within Mexico until a presidential order of General Herrera stopped them. Under the order, Riley was arrested for suspicion of a plot to kidnap President José Joaquín de Herrera, and the San Patricios were recalled to Mexico City where the government could monitor their actions. Herrera, in order to end the problems with the San Patricios and dispel any further crises as well as to cut the postwar budget, dissolved the company in 1848, a short time after it received its last military expenditure in August. While some members of the San Patricio company petitioned the government of Mexico for help in returning to their European homelands, most remained in Mexico as they could not return to the United States.

I fail to see anything attractive about the San Particios. They, some few Irish and stragglers, deserted to the enemy and waged war against their own. Of those few, some few were hanged. I've read a few books about the technicalities of hanging. These men above were not killed quickly. They fell to the "Short Drop." They strangled.

The San Patricios had their reasons for deserting and taking up arms against their own. Root causes. Moral equivalence. Yes but.... American imperialism. Oppression.

We hang our own.

Un petit feu.

In early Dec. and late Feb. I made dramatic predictions of wide-spread violence coming to France in mid-April to the point that by Aug. or Sept. the French military would stage a coup d'etat to restore sanity to the nation. It looks like I was wrong. There's a bit of sporadic rioting. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

Mayor targeted as youths fight police near Paris

Tue May 30, 8:51 AM ET

PARIS (Reuters) - Youths clashed with police in a Paris suburb overnight and attacked the home of the local mayor in disturbances one police union said were the worst since a wave of urban riots shook France in November.

French media said some 150 youths armed with baseball bats fought around 250 police for four hours in Montfermeil north of Paris after the arrest of a youth suspected of attacking a bus driver, an incident witnessed by the local mayor Xavier Lemoine.

Youths smashed windows, hurled two petrol bombs at the town hall and stoned the mayor's home, the media reports said.

Seven police officers were slightly hurt in the violence, in which six youths were detained, police said. Three remained in custody.

"Around 100 hooded youths stoned my home shouting 'the mayor is a son of a bitch'," Le Monde newspaper quoted Lemoine as saying. "The clashes took place 50 meters (yards) from my home."

Lemoine, a married reserve naval officer with seven children, said he had been targeted after coming to help a bus driver being assaulted by youths who then recognized him.

The arrest of a suspect in the attack late on Monday triggered the violence, he said.

The mayor, whose home and family have previously been set upon, courted controversy last month when he banned unsupervised under-aged youths from gathering in groups in the town center. The order was later overturned by an administrative court.

Michel Thooris, secretary general of the Action Police CFTC union, said the latest violence was the worst since November.

"Last night we saw the strongest after-shock of the earthquake of November 2005 that hit the suburbs. The situation in the suburbs remains explosive," he said in a statement, calling on Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy to put community officers back on the beat to reduce tensions.

Montfermeil borders Clichy-Sous-Bois, where last year's riots began after two youngsters died while apparently fleeing police. In the three weeks of rioting that followed in poor suburbs around France, some 9,000 vehicles and dozens of public buildings and businesses were torched.

The government invoked emergency powers to quell what was the worst unrest in mainland France in nearly 40 years.

The opposition say the government has failed to alleviate the high unemployment and racial discrimination that provided the backdrop to November's disturbances.

French youths clash with police in Paris suburbs
May 29, 11:42 PM (ET)

PARIS (Reuters) - Around a hundred youths clashed with police during the night after setting fire to cars and rubbish bins in a Paris suburb that was the scene of violent riots last November, a local official said on Tuesday.

Seven police officers were slightly injured and six youths were arrested in a neighbourhood of Seine-Saint-Denis in confrontations that started at about 2030 GMT on Monday evening, according to a security official from the suburb to the North of the French capital.

The youths began burning cars in reaction to a police operation in which a young man was arrested several hours earlier. Officials said they did not yet know how many cars had been burned.

More Violent Riots in France

Many of our non-American readers will wonder why we celebrate Memorial Day and not specifically Rmembrance Day on Nov. 11 instead. Below is a bit of history to explain the origins of Memorial Day. We'll follow with a couple of other pieces I feel are relevant to this day:

Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873.

This from wikipedia:

This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country. It began first to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it expanded to include those who died in any war or military action.

Following the end of the Civil War, many communities set aside a day to mark the end of the war or as a memorial to those who had died.

The official birthplace of Memorial Day is Waterloo, New York. The village was credited with being the birthplace because it observed the day on May 5, 1866, and each year thereafter, and because it is likely that the friendship of General John Murray, a distinguished citizen of Waterloo, and General John A. Logan, who led the call for the day to be observed each year and helped spread the event nationwide, was a key factor in its growth.

General Logan had been impressed by the way the South honored their dead with a special day and decided the Union needed a similar day. Reportedly, Logan said that it was most fitting; that the ancients, especially the Greeks, had honored their dead, particularly their heroes, by chaplets of laurel and flowers, and that he intended to issue an order designating a day for decorating the grave of every soldier in the land, and if he could he would have made it a holiday. That holiday was eventually Memorial Day. ( and

Logan had been the principal speaker in a citywide memorial observation on April 29, 1866, at a cemetery in Carbondale, Illinois, an event that likely gave him the idea to make it a national holiday. On May 5, 1868, in his capacity as commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, a veterans' organization, Logan issued a proclamation that "Decoration Day" be observed nationwide. It was observed for the first time on May 30 of the same year. The tombs of fallen Union soldiers were decorated in remembrance of this day.Given its origin in the American Civil War, Memorial Day is not a holiday outside the US.

An immigrant wrote one of my favorite songs when he served in the U.S. Army:

God Bless America

God bless A - mer-i-ca
Land that I love
Stand be-side her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from a - bove

From the moun-tains to the prai-ries
To the o-ceans white with foam
God bless A - mer-i-ca My home sweet home
God bless A - mer-i-ca My home sweet home

"God Bless America" is an American patriotic song written by Irving Berlin in 1918 and revised by him in 1938. It is sometimes considered an unofficial national anthem of the United States.

Berlin originally wrote the song in 1918 while serving in the U.S. Army at Camp Upton in Yaphank, New York, but decided that it did not fit in a review called Yip Yip Yaphank, so he set it aside. The lyrics at that time included the line, "Make her victorious on land and foam, God bless America..."

In 1938, with the rise of Hitler, Berlin, who was a Jewish immigrant from Siberia, felt it was time to revive it as a "peace song" and it was introduced on an Armistice Day broadcast in 1938 sung by Kate Smith. The song was a hit; there was even a movement to make "God Bless America" the national anthem of the United States. In 1943, Smith's rendition was featured in the patriotic musical This Is the Army along with other Berlin songs. Manuscripts in the Library of Congress reveal the evolution of the song from victory to peace.

We have peace because we have war.

Well, really. Let’s get a grip here, shall we? True enough, they [technocrats] were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break. They formed a technocratic corps at the very heart of America’s global financial empire – the “mighty engine of profit” to which the military dimension of U.S. policy has always been enslaved – and they did so both willingly and knowingly. Recourse to “ignorance” – a derivative, after all, of the word “ignore” – counts as less than an excuse among this relatively well-educated elite. To the extent that any of them were unaware of the costs and consequences to others of what they were involved in – and in many cases excelling at – it was because of their absolute refusal to see. More likely, it was because they were too busy braying, incessantly and self-importantly, into their cell phones, arranging power lunches and stock transactions, each of which translated, conveniently out of sight, mind and smelling distance, into the starved and rotting flesh of infants. If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers, I’d really be interested in hearing about it.

The Gettysburg Address Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
November 19, 1863

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Boycott Chapters/Indigo Bookstores

Canada's largest book retail chain has banned this month's issue of Harper's Magazine from its outlets and subsidiaries. Good for the Canadian book-buying public: now people know certainly that Chapters/Indigo sucks big-time.

Harper's pulled over cartoon worries
Sun, May 28, 2006

TORONTO -- Canada's largest retail bookseller has removed all copies of the June issue of Harper's Magazine from its 260 stores, saying an article by New York cartoonist Art Spiegelman could foment protests similar to those that occurred this year in reaction to the publication in a Danish newspaper of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad.

Indigo Books and Music took the action this week when its executives noticed the 10-page Harper's article, titled Drawing Blood, reproduced all 12 cartoons first published last September by Jyllands-Posten.


In a memo e-mailed to Indigo managers Friday about "what to do if customers question Indigo's censorship" of Harper's, employees were told to say "the decision was made based on the fact that the content about to be published has been known to ignite demonstrations around the world. Indigo and its subsidiaries -- Chapters and Coles -- will not carry this particular issue of the magazine, but will continue to carry other issues of this publication in the future."

Indigo normally carries as many as 3,000 copies each month of Harper's, about 11 per cent of the New York magazine's total retail distribution in Canada, according to a Harper's circulations manager.

When a book by a conservative isn't given shelf-space at Indigo/Chapters a writer at Western Standard asks:

"Is it merely a coincidence that Chapters-Indigo is owned and headed by Liberal Party fundraisers and stalwarts Gerry Schwartz and Heather Reisman?"

In response to the article above a commentator writes:

Guys, it's not a question of political bias on Reisman's part. It's her lazy, privileged Eastern attitude towards business. She has a virtual monopoly over the 'bricks and mortar' book selling market. She doesn't have to compete with Border or Barnes and Noble on home turf. In the online market, she's getting massacred because Amazon rules supreme there with excellent service and prices. I could not ask Jeff Bezos to do more, but I know he will anyway. As for Reisman - heh, don't make me laugh. I will never waste my hard earned money on the likes of her ever again. McNally-Robinson or Amazon for me guys.

The article also contains five cartoons, including one by Mr. Spiegelman and two by Israelis, "inspired" by an Iranian newspaper's call in February for an international Holocaust cartoon contest "to test the limits of Western tolerance of free speech."

Spiegelman — perhaps best known as the creator of the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Holocaust cartoon Maus — rates each of the 12 Mohammed cartoons on a scale of 1 to 4 "fatwa bombs," and also includes several scabrous cartoons from the 19th and 20th centuries.

Maybe we'll get very lucky and find out that the executives of Chapters have issued a bounty on Spiegleman and Harper's staff. Not a fatwah, just an inter-office memo suggesting to the folks in the mail-room that a promotion is available if one of them ships off a letter bomb to those who would dare offend the high and mighty dhimmis who know what's better for the proles.
