Wise words from the Dalai Lama

The Buddhist monk says Syrians should go home and rebuild their country (Hat tip: Truth Revolt):
"The main effort should go to help their own country bring peace, in Syria, Libya or even Afghanistan. Generally the people always feel, 'Oh, one day we return'," the Dalai Lama told Morgan. "[They] should rebuild their own country."
He's throughly correct. Yet it's not really their own country the Syrian interlopers in Europe care about, but their Religion of Rape. That's what motivates a lot of them to go turn other countries into living hells.

Turkish immigrant murdered 5 at Washington mall

A gunman murdered 4 women and a man at a Burlington mall in Washington. It turns out he's of Turkish background, and mostly like an Islamofascist:
Police have identified the alleged shooter in the Burlington mall attack as Arcan Cetin, 20, of Oak Harbor, Washington. Multiple reports indicate that Cetin was an immigrant from Turkey — not a citizen, but a legal permanent resident of the United States.

Cetin allegedly killed four women and one man at the Cascade Mall on Friday evening. Local NBC News affiliate KING-5 reports that he used three guns in the attack, all of which had been legally purchased by Cetin’s father, and which he stole.
He even signaled he supports Hillary Clinton and additional reports indicate he's a Muslim. And Rep. Michael McCaul of the homeland security committee says there's a very possible chance this was an Islamic terror attack. Even in a state like Washington, it's getting very dangerous.

Lifelong Democrat voting for Trump

Here's an op-ed from the Wall Street Journal written by Andrew Stein, a Democrat politician for decades who's now decided to make a switch and vote for Donald Trump rather than Hillary Clinton:
I have been steeped in the Democratic Party all my life. My father, Jerry, was a New York City Democratic chairman and power broker, and I grew up in and around the Democratic Party. When I was a young man, former senators and Democratic presidential and vice-presidential nominees Herbert Humphrey and Estes Kefauver stayed at my apartment and we would proudly discuss the great traditions of the Democratic Party.

My father was a pallbearer at St. Patrick’s for Bobby Kennedy’s funeral. When I was young, Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy were (and remain) my political heroes. Four years ago, former New York Gov. and liberal lion Mario Cuomo spoke at my father’s funeral. I think his son, current Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is a very effective leader.

I was elected five times to the New York state Assembly as a Democrat. In 1977, I beat David Dinkins and Robert Wagner Jr. in the election for borough president of Manhattan, and then was elected twice as City Council president.
With this background it is very hard for me not to support the Democratic nominee for president this year. But I believe my party has become the party of the elites and moneyed class and has deserted its historic mission as the party of the working class and disadvantaged.

Given my level of discomfort with the current leftist orientation of the Democratic Party, I am now supporting Republican nominee Donald Trump for president. I urge my fellow Democrats to vote for Mr. Trump. I have known him since the early 1970s and have seen his deep concern for people, and how effective he has been while working on behalf of the average citizen.

Donald Trump is no racist. On the contrary, he offers the best hope for rebuilding our inner cities and creating better education and jobs for those trapped in poverty and lacking hope. When a hurricane devastated Puerto Rico in 1984, I asked Mr. Trump to provide a 727 airliner to bring critical supplies to the island. He did so and without publicity. I asked him to rebuild the Wollman Skating Rink in Central Park because the city couldn’t complete it in 10 years. Mr. Trump did it in under six months and under budget.

While he has made some controversial and provocative statements, I strongly believe he will bring needed change and vitality to our nation and shake up our political system, which is in a state of crisis. He is for strong pro-growth policies like reducing the marginal and corporate tax rates and eliminating thousands of job-killing and business-stifling regulations, the biggest of which is ObamaCare.

Mr. Trump is also for rebuilding the military, which has been decimated by Obama’s dangerous cuts and sequestration. He is a strong supporter of Israel and will not abandon our allies in the Mideast and around the world. Unlike Hillary Clinton, he will not allow tens of thousands of immigrants who cannot be vetted properly to come to the U.S.
Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is the personification of the establishment and status quo. She voted for the war in Iraq and supported the Iran nuclear deal, two of the worst, and most-dangerous, mistakes in American foreign policy during my lifetime.

Everywhere in the world America’s position is far worse now thanks in large measure to her actions as secretary of state. The whole saga of her private unsecure emails and server and the appearance of massive pay-for-play at the Clinton Foundation are also profoundly troubling.

Her domestic record is as bad as her international one. When Mrs. Clinton was elected to the Senate, she promised to create 200,000 new jobs in upstate New York. When she left office in January 2009, the region had a net loss of 8,000 jobs. Now she promises to create 10 million new jobs in the nation. Why should we believe that she will do that, based on her failed record in New York state?

Sometimes a break with your own party is compelled by events. This is not to say it is an easy decision politically or personally. It can be wrenching. In 1973 I was appointed by Gov. Nelson Rockefeller to be chairman of a commission to investigate patient abuse and massive Medicaid fraud in the New York state nursing-home industry—which was extensively covered by the press. The nursing homeowners were protected by the Democratic leadership in the state Assembly. I had to fight those leaders in my own party to get the needed reforms passed.

As President Kennedy once said to his trusted speechwriter and confidante Arthur Schlesinger Jr., “Sometimes party loyalty asks too much.” This is the case in this election. I believe Donald Trump will make a great president and I ask my fellow Democrats to vote for him. The future of the nation may very well depend on it.

Mr. Stein, who held elective office in New York between 1969 and 1994, is now a business consultant.
Some of this guy's positions are pretty good, and he's right, Clinton's a disaster while Trump, by contrast, has some more positive examples to his record, making him the candidate far more worthy of voting for.

Globe and Mail says Netanyahu's got a strong position for Israel

Michael Bell wrote in The Globe and Mail that Israel's prime minister is in a strong position on middle eastern topics. But he slips when brings up the following:
Despite persistent criticism by U.S. administrations, particularly that of President Barack Obama, the Israeli-U.S. relationship has not been weakened. The situation would be more favourable for Mr. Netanyahu with Hillary Clinton. Earlier this month, an agreement was signed between the Obama administration and Israel committing the United States to delivering $38-billion (U.S.) in military aid. This is reinforced by far-reaching intelligence and security co-operation. It is buttressed by tax-deductible donations from wealthy Americans and well-endowed foundations aimed at expanding the Israeli presence in the West Bank.
Oh for heaven's sake. He's falling back on the laughable notion that only a leftist can prove a favorable relation with Israel. That's not so at all, and let's not forget that Hillary Clinton's approach to the Benghazi issue was disastrous. She also led a favorable relationship with Arafat and his wife. So why should we expect her to be any better to Israel?

I think Bell's got to wake up and smell the coffee.

Could there be an impending culture war?

Isi Liebler wrote about the risk of tensions the Haredi political parties are causing with non-Haredis, and why they should cut it out. However, there's one part here I must take issue with:
Unlike their counterparts in the Diaspora and contrary to historical precedent, these rabbis discourage gainful employment and encourage reliance on social welfare, insisting that their followers engage in “full-time” learning. Aside from the poverty this imposes, it presents an ever-growing burden on the economy. These rabbis also issue edicts adamantly opposing the draft. This generates enormous resentment among the vast majority of Israelis who are enraged that their taxes are employed to subsidize those who reject productive employment and refuse to share the defense burden.
Now he's right that quite a few of the Haredi spiritual leaders in Israel are making their followers rely on socialism. But he's wrong that their counterparts overseas encourage the opposite, if we're talking about Satmar and Skver tribes, who rely on welfare just as much as a lot of the Haredis here are too, and live an all but segregationist lifestyle, replete with censorship tactics involved, and the Satmar even forbid women to drive cars. Some of this derives from Europe's own socialism, which they brought with them to other countries. How Liebler thought Haredis living in foreign countries were entirely different is beyond me.

Still, much of his article is very much on the mark, and provides a lot to think about, including that the Haredis here are going to have to cut out what they're doing now that's bad, if they really don't want to cause tension with non-Haredis that could've been avoided.

Ahmad Rahami's sister was as much a jihad supporter as he is

The UK Telegraph (via Breitbart) says that the terrorist who planted bombs in New York and New Jersey supported jihadism in her own way:
The sister of the New York bomber was revealed on Wednesday to have seemingly posted a stream of anti-American and jihadist rhetoric online, as questions were mounting about how the FBI came to dismiss repeated concerns about Ahmad Rahami.

Aziza Rahami, who is believed to have lived with the rest of the family above a fried chicken shop in New Jersey, is thought to have posted a series of messages in the summer of 2013 and early 2014 praising the September 11 attackers and quoting Osama bin Laden’s predecessor – a man known as “the father of global jihad.”

In March 2014 she shared a quote from Abdullah Yusuf Azzam, a co-founder of al-Qaeda, stating: "If defending ourselves is terrorism, then let history be witness that we are terrorists!"

Azzam was killed by a car bomb in Pakistan in 1989.

She shared a video in February 2014, claiming that the Twin Towers attacks were the work of the American government, designed to discredit Muslims. In January she railed against American “crusaders” in Iraq, and the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison.

In the summer of 2013 she posted a picture claiming: “No to democracy, yes to the Islamic caliphate.”
She is absolutely disgusting and should have her citizenship revoked. Some of the reports tell that a few other family members were just as bad. They should all be told to leave the USA if that's how they're going to look at things.

Donald Trump supports internet freedom

Trump is wisely offering his support for internet freedom, and opposition to the Obama administration's intention to give it away and potentially damage everything:
Donald Trump praised congressional Republicans’ efforts on Wednesday. “Donald J. Trump is committed to preserving internet freedom for the American people and citizens all over the world,” his campaign said in an official statement.

“The U.S. should not turn control of the internet over to the United Nations and the international community. President Obama intends to do so on his own authority – just 10 days from now, on Oct. 1, unless Congress acts quickly to stop him,” the statement continued.

South Dakota Sen. John Thune told reporters Wednesday that he is “pretty confident” that language preventing the transition of IANA oversight will be included in the text of the spending bill.
I sure hope so, and that justice can be done.

In more related news, the UK Register's got an article on how ICANN's been accused of mismanagements, one more reason why they can't just be allowed to take charge all by themselves.

Sweden's no-go zones build up as police lose control

And they're probably fine with that. The UK Express (via Pamela Geller) says:
In February Express.co.uk reported the Scandinavian country has seen a huge surge in crime since the start of the migrants crisis in Europe with a rise in sex assaults, drug dealing and children carrying weapons.

The force’s increased lack of control in the country was revealed in a report by Sweden’s National Criminal Investigation Service, where attacks on officers were detailed, including police cars being stoned by masked groups.

At the time around 50 areas were put on a “blacklist” which are then divided into three categories from “risk areas” to “seriously vulnerable”.

The figure has now been increased to 55 as the Swedish police force are facing a crisis, with three officers handing in their notice every day.

It is estimated that 80 per cent of the police officers are also considering changing professions, due to lack of funding and support to tackle the increasing levels of crime.

Speaking to NRK, police officer Peter Larsson said: “We have a major crisis. Many colleagues are choosing to quit.

“We are not investigating crimes, we don’t have time to cover the call-outs we are tasked with.

“A drastically worsened working environment means many colleagues are now looking for other work.”

A regular shift for the Swedish force includes being attacked by thugs who throw stones at the officers and their patrol cars, vehicles being set ablaze, and in some cases personal injuries.

A new report released last week revealed the situation in the country has worsened since the National Criminal Investigation Service’s document emerged in February.

A report entitled ‘A national overview of criminal networks with major impact in the local community’ said it was common place for unattended police cars to be attacked, for police officers to be attacked and to be exposed to threats.

It added drug and gang violence are still flourishing in the no-go zones
.

Malmö in south Sweden was one of the cities which was flagged as a particularly hit area in the liberal country.
But don't expect Sweden to assign its own military to deal with any of this. Just recently, a Swedish government charity organization said that Swedes should integrate with the invaders. Here's the Breitbart report (also via Pamela Geller):
“It’s time to realise the new Swedes will claim their space” an ad insists, describing the Nordic nation as a “safe space” for migrants and concluding: “There is no way back. Sweden will never be like it was.”

The campaign is called “The New Country” (hashtag #detnyalandet) with a website appearing alongside the film, arguing that residents should adopt foreign “cultures” and “languages”, rather than expect new arrivals to become Swedish.
No doubt they also want Swedes to convert to Islam. If the Nazis had won WW2, I wouldn't be surprised if they'd introduce Islam into Europe at the time. Nor would I be shocked if any Nazis had converted to Islam during WW2. As for Sweden, it's clear they're plummeting into a civil war already as the invaders turn the place into a hellhole.

North Philadelphia mother wanted to abandon children to marry ISIS terrorist in Syria

And if she's that radicalized, then it's clear she's not fit to mother them regardless. From the Philadelphia Daily News:
A North Philadelphia mother of two admitted Tuesday that she planned to abandon her children and travel to Syria to pursue "martyrdom operations" with an ISIS fighter she married over the internet.

Keonna Thomas, 32, pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization during a brief hearing in federal court. She acknowledged her plans were derailed last year only when federal agents raided her home the day she was scheduled to leave the country.

"I believe that I'm guilty of this charge," said Thomas, dressed in a head scarf and green prison jumpsuit, when asked by U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson why she was changing her plea.

Federal authorities had couched the case as the latest in a string of prosecutions to combat what they describe as a "more decentralized, more diffuse, more complicated" homegrown terror threat from U.S. citizens radicalized over the internet.
Now is that possible to marry somebody over the internet and Skype? Only Islamofascists could possibly see that as valid.

Note how the woman also wears a hijab, and when she does that even in prison, it's clear she's acting in contempt of the society she's isolating herself from. Her children deserve far better, and it's terrible she's causing such embarrassment.

Senator Mike Lee's right

Utah senator Mike Lee wrote on Daily Signal why it's bad to risk letting totalitarian regimes get hold of the internet:
Just five years after ICANN was created, the United Nations established a Working Group on Internet Governance “to investigate and make proposals for action … on the governance of Internet.” And in 2012 at the World Conference on International Telecommunications, several authoritarian regimes—including Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia—called for the “sovereign right” of governments to “establish and implement public policy, including international policy, on matters of Internet governance.”
There's every chance they still have that goal in mind, so letting them get hold of the web would only be bad news, and that's why a transfer should be opposed. Also, as noted here:
ICANN is currently involved in litigation over alleged improper interference from governments who objected to how the organization awarded the .africa domain name. And the organization was recently admonished by an independent review panel for making decisions that were “cavalier” and “simply not credible” in relation to an application for domain names.
As discovered earlier, ICANN's also got shady people involved, one more reason why they're not fit yet to be a steward on their own. In fact, with that record, there's valid grounds not to let them manage the web, but rather, to assign another business, non-profit or otherwise, to handle things.

One of the commenters also said:
I would suggest that IF our LIAR-in-CHIEF gets HIS WAY and gives up the TOTAL CONTROL of the internet to the U.N., then the people of America should start our OWN and separate internet inside America and leave the rest of the world out of OUR internet until we get a FREE & OPEN internet back from the U.N. so we can have what we have NOW, if you could call what we have now, an entirely free & open without our goverment controlling even partially what we see & hear over our portion of the internet.
This reflects what I was thinking pretty well. There could be a separate internet corporation established, providing needed competition for domain development and such. There's no need to let one company have a monopoly on internet development. Whatever the outcome of the fight to protect the web as it stands now, I think the competition should be started now, because it could have benefits in the future.

Bomb builder hated American culture

Ahmed Rahami, the bomb maker arrested for planting the bombs in New Jersey and New York, was rather unsurprisingly negative about the country he lived in, and even homophobic (hat tip: Hot Air):
The man who police nabbed and shot Monday after a day-long dragnet in connection with a series of terror attacks in and around New York was a bad father who disliked America, hated gays and took long trips to his homeland of Afghanistan, according to the mother of his young daughter.

Maria, whose full name is being withheld by FoxNews.com, said her high school sweetheart, Ahmad Khan Rahami, didn’t pay child support and often railed against American culture. The 26-year-old, who spoke after her grandmother called her for a reporter who produced his press credential and identified himself at the grandmother’s home in Elizabeth, said she had not seen Rahami in two years.

"He would speak often of Western culture and how it was different back home,” she said. “How there weren't homosexuals in Afghanistan.

"He seemed standoffish to American culture, but I never thought he would cross the line," she added.
Well obviously he was, and did. If the wife accepted his religion, then she's done something very stupid, and shouldn't have underestimated his capabilities. This should serve as a crucial lesson why not to marry an Islamist unless they're willing to abandon the Religion of Peace. Not doing only ensures worry will be needed.

Stabbing attacks boomerang

There've been knifing attacks in Israel once again, with the latest being in Hebron and Jerusalem:
Two terrorists approached a Border Police post near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron this afternoon (Monday) in order to carry out a stabbing attack. The Border Policemen at the scene shot the terrorists in order to neutralize them. One of the Border Policemen sustained minor injuries on his hand.

During the attack, the terrorists and Border Policemen struggled with one another. Eventually, the Border Policemen were able to neutralize the terrorists by shooting them. The Border Policeman who sustained minor injuries was treated at the scene.

Earlier today, two police officers in Jerusalem were injured in a stabbing attack. One of the officers was able to pull out his weapon and shoot the terrorist.
So we're back to the intifada situation yet again. Truly revolting.
