Non-Jewish Olympian, Rebecca Adlington, Experiences Vile Antisemitism

A non-Jewish British Olympian has been the subject of a vicious online antisemitic attack, her fiance revealed in an interview with the UK’s Daily Mail.

Opening up about her anxieties and insecurities over her body image, Rebecca Adlington, a now retired swimmer who won bronze and gold medals at successive Olympic events, said that she is often targeted and mocked online. The sporting star said that the abuse often brings her to tears.

“She got a tweet the other day from someone saying she was a Jewish c*** because of her nose and should die like the rest of her lot in a concentration camp,” Adlington’s fiance, Harry Needs, a fellow swimmer, said. “How can people write that stuff?”

“Becky’s warm blue eyes fill with tears when she talks about these tweets,” the Daily Mail added.

A role model for many young, aspiring athletes, Adlington is Great Britain’s most decorated female Olympian along with Katherine Grainger. She retired in February 2013 at the age of 23 and has since pursued a career in reality television.

Waiting for (Gal) Gadot

Posted on: Dec8 2013

It was the year of the wrecking ball. From Miley’s twerks to Lady Gaga’s whacked out skirts, female celebs are in need of a new kind of hero. Even Jen Lawrence fell down on her knees while ascending the stage to accept an Oscar in ‘13.

But wait. Look up in the sky. It’s an invisible plane. No it’s a giant Amazon. Well, it’s actually Israeli actress, Gal Gadot on her way to playing Wonder Woman (aka Diana Prince) in director Zack Snyder’s upcoming sequel to “Man of Steel” (no name for the new flick yet) set for July 2015. As the Jerusalem Post reported, the film will feature this year’s Superman (Clark Kent) Henry Cavill, along with Ben Affleck as the caped crusader, Batman (Bruce Wayne.)

For those who grew up on TV in the U.S. during the 1970s, it may be hard to imagine anyone replacing the image of lariat-wielding Lynda Carter, who turned Wonder Woman into a pop icon.

But alas, wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles, this new Wonder Woman is no shiksa goddess. Gadot was a 2004 Miss Universe contestant from Israel and was in three of the “Fast & Furious” franchise films, which just recently lost one of its costars Paul Walker. She also served in the Israeli army for two years as a fitness instructor and according to “Fast & Furious” director and producer Justin Lin, when he learned of this he went and altered the character’s back-story to a Mossad agent. Holy double-backing duplicity Batman!

But, don’t let that turn your dial. The back-story of how Wonder Woman originally came into being is just as interesting.

Originally created by a psychologist named William Moulton Marston the character first appeared in December 1941, the same year as Captain America, and a few years after The Man of Steel first leaped onto the comic book scene. Unlike, Superman, Batman and the Marvel Universe though, she was one of the few comics not created by Jews.

Yet like those supers, she fought for justice and peace and, speeding ahead of her time, sexual equality. Based on a warrior princess of Amazonian heritage born out of Greek myths, and known in her homeland as Princess Diana of Themyscira, she has a secret identity to all of us mortals as Diana Prince.

But maybe what’s most interesting, is her creator, who gave her a Golden Lasso as a weapon, which had the power of making anyone it captured obey and tell the truth, was also the inventor of the polygraph (AKA lie detector.) He even wrote, “Wonder Woman is the psychological propaganda for the new woman who should, I believe, rule the world.”

Since that time, her lineage and story-line has been altered to fit the political climate of the age, from sympathetic heroine to invincible martial artist. But what runs through as a constant, is her compassion which depending on the circumstances, can be a strength or a weakness.

Today, with political battles in Presidential politics heating up for 2016 and with all the talk of Hillary on the ticket, it will be interesting to see how fans might react to both a woman on that ticket and a woman on this new (movie) ticket.

The Islamic Jihad Against Christian Nuns

Posted on: Dec8 2013

Yet another phenomenon with a long paper trail in Islamic history has just taken place, even as the Western “mainstream” community —little acquainted with true history or reality—dismisses it as an aberration. Asia News has the details:

Islamist rebels have kidnapped a group of nuns from the Greek Orthodox monastery of St Thecla (Mar Taqla) in Maaloula [an ancient Christian community where Christians were earlier forced to convert to Islam or die]…  “Armed men burst in the monastery of St Thecla in Maaloula this afternoon [Dec. 2]. From there, they forcibly took 12 women religious,” Mgr Zenari said …. Neither the nuncio nor the Greek Orthodox Church know [the] reason behind the kidnapping.

The “reason behind the kidnapping”? Sexual abuse and rape certainly should not be discounted, as these have been the lot of thousands of women abducted by U.S.-sponsored “freedom fighters” in Syria. Indeed, a new report issued by the National Reconciliation Commission in Syria states that some 37,000 women have been raped since the war started.

To keep the jihad in Syria alive, pro-war Islamic clerics have issued any number of fatwas, or Islamic rulings, permitting sexually-frustrated, female-deprived rebels to rape women. Most of these are based on the simple fact that Islam permits jihadis, based on the example of their prophet, to copulate with any captured woman—or, in the words of the Koran, “what your right hands possess” (see “The Jihad on Christian Women: Abduction, Rape, and Forced Conversion,” pgs. 186-199 in Crucified Again for detailed information).

One cleric permitted the abduction and rape of any Syrian woman, provided she is not Sunni. Yet apparently because there are still not enough women for the jihadi hordes, many of whom are foreigners—one Christian child was recently raped by 15 men before being killedSunni Muslim women are also being targeted through sex jihad fatwas.

So would such jihadis and their clerics have any special respect for Christian nuns?

The fact is, raped nuns is a phenomenon that goes back centuries. According to Muslim historian Taqi al-Din al-Maqrizi (1364-1442), during his raids on Egypt, Caliph Marwan II (r.744–50) “made captive a number of women from among the nuns of several convents. And he tried to seduce one of them.” The account describes how the enslaved nun tricked him into killing her, by claiming she had a magic oil that make skin impenetrable: “She then took some oil and anointed herself with it; then stretched out her neck, which he smote with the sword, and made her head fly.  He then understood that she preferred death to defilement.”

Writing in the 10th century, the Coptic chronicler Severus ibn Muqaffa records that “the Arabs in the land of Egypt had ruined the country….  They burnt the fortresses and pillaged the provinces, and killed a multitude of the saintly monks who were in them [monasteries] and they violated a multitude of the virgin nuns and killed some of them with the sword.”

After the Islamic conquest of Constantinople in 1453, according to eyewitness accounts, “Monasteries and Convents were broken in. Their tenants were killed, nuns were raped, many, to avoid dishonor, killed themselves. Killing, raping, looting, burning, enslaving, went on and on according to tradition.”

Such is history—expunged as it is in the modern West, even as it repeats itself today. Thus, in August 2013, after torching a Franciscan school in Egypt, “Islamists,” in the words of the AP, “paraded three nuns on the streets like ‘prisoners of war’” and “Two other women working at the school were sexually harassed and abused as they fought their way through a mob.”

Indeed, the rise in attacks on Christian nuns throughout the Islamic world further demonstrates that they are no more inviolable than other “infidel” women:

  • Somalia: In response to Pope Benedict’s historical quotes which, like so many other things—including teddy bears—so enraged the Islamic world, Muslims in Somalia shot Leonella Sgarbati—a 66-year-old nun who had devoted 30 years of her life working in Africa—in her back. Her last words before dying in hospital were: “I forgive; I forgive.”
  • Pakistan: In September 2012, gunmen on motorbikes dressed in green (Islam’s color) opened fire on the St. Francis Xavier Catholic Cathedral in Hyderabad, murdering at least 28 people. Their immediate target was a nun, Mother Christina.
  • Libya: In February 2013, after the fall of Colonel Gaddafi, Islamic rebels threatened Christian nuns into fleeing the nation. They had been there since 1921, focused primarily on helping the sick and needy.
  • Philippines: In an article discussing a Christmas Day church bombing in a Muslim-majority region, we learn that the jihadi group responsible “has been blamed for several bomb attacks on the Roman Catholic cathedral in Jolo since the early 2000s and for kidnapping priests and nuns.”
  • Guinea: In June 2013, during a mob-led frenzy, Christians and their churches were savagely attacked in the Muslim-majority nation—with some 95 Christians slain and 130 wounded—including “the quarters of the nuns, [which] was looted before being torched.”

The above examples come from five countries that have little in common with one another—neither race, language, culture, nor economics—only Islam.

That alone should say something.

But no matter. Far from discussing Islamic history and doctrine, and how they tie to current events, the predominant Western mentality simply dismisses Muslim violence as the West’s fault, or, in the recent words of ex-nun Karen Armstrong, “We did this.” Armstrong—who quit the nunnery only to engage in pro-Islamic mummery—insists that what’s needed is for us to focus more on “Muslim pain, Muslim suffering.”

Such, according to the leftist mentality, are the “real” reasons why, wherever Muslim-majorities live near non-Muslim minorities, from the dawn of Islam till today, the latter are under attack.

General: Obama purposely weakening U.S. military

Posted on: Nov25 2013

WASHINGTON – A former deputy commanding general of the U.S. Pacific Command says President Obama seeks to “seize control over national security” and, bypassing Congress, singlehandedly weaken the U.S. military.

Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely, retired, charges in a 21-page position statement made available to WND, titled “The Obama Military – Evolution and Legacy,” that Obama already has begun working with Russia to reduce nuclear weapons without a treaty, which would require Senate ratification.

“This would allow Obama and the executive branch to unilaterally cut our military capability and nuclear weaponry and ignore the treaty clause of the Constitution,” said Vallely, who has also served as a senior military analyst for Fox News Channel. Vallely has also charged, along with several other top generals, that Obama is purging the military by firing top-level commanders and that his ultimate goal is to “destroy U.S. military superiority” to the “advantage of our global enemies.”

In his capacity as chairman of the organization Stand Up America, Vallely previously called for the resignations of Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and certain congressional leaders, issuing a “national call to action” aimed at bringing about those resignations.

Vallely is far from the only one worried about a plunge in military capabilities under Obama’s administration.

Frank Gaffney, former acting assistant secretary of defense during the Reagan administration, has asserted that placing women in combat is just the latest example of a “deliberate and systematic wrecking operation” the administration has conducted against the U.S. armed forces since 2009.

In addition, the Obama administration has directed measures to reduce the Pentagon budget by $1.3 trillion over the next 10 years, said Gaffney, currently president of the Washington-based Center for Security Policy.

In turn, this is bringing about the elimination or slowing of virtually all modernization programs, reduction in maintenance of worn-out weapons systems and other equipment and diminished training and cutting back in benefits, such as the plan the Pentagon has ordered to cut out commissary privileges at all of the military’s 178 U.S. and 70 foreign bases.

Further, Obama’s social agenda now includes changes in the law to allow open homosexuality in the ranks of the American armed forces.

Response? Increased foreign aggression

The undermining of the U.S. military hasn’t been lost on other countries like China, Russia, Iran and North Korea, all of whom have become more militarily aggressive during the Obama administration.

Robert Fisher, a Chinese military affairs specialist, says the Chinese leadership is “not impressed” with the administration’s decisions regarding next-generation stealth aircraft and its retirement of more than half of the Navy’s warships.

At the same time, Beijing has deployed its “carrier killer” missile, the Dong Feng-21D, that can be fired from a mobile launcher as Beijing begins to show greater military assertiveness in the East and South China Seas.

Retired Navy Capt. Joseph John tells WND the “bigger picture” is that “the U.S. armed forces have been under relentless attack by the occupant of the Oval Office for five years.”

A Naval Academy graduate, John had three tours of duty in Vietnam, served as an al-Qaida expert for the FBI, and was a commanding officer with SEALs embedded on special operations. As chairman of Combat Veterans For Congress PAC (Political Action Committee), he has helped elect 20 combat veterans to Congress.

“I believe there are more than 137 officers who have been forced out or given bad evaluation reports so they will never make flag [officer], because of their failure to comply to certain views,” John told WND.

“The truly sad story is that many of the brightest graduates of the three major service academies witnessing what the social experiment on diversity … is doing to the U.S. military, are leaving the service after five years,” he said. “We are being left with an officer corps that can be made to be more compliant, that is, exactly what Obama needs to effect his long range goals for the U.S. military.”

In an email to WND, John outlined what he termed “a very few of the most egregious” aspects of Obama’s “attack” on the military over the past five years.

He referred specifically to the Rules of Engagement in combat that were put in place after Obama took office, claiming the changes resulted in very high casualty rates in Afghanistan, including the loss of 17 members of SEAL Team 6 in one incident.

“The Rules of Engagement precluded the use of suppression fire at a landing zone,” John noted.

Endangering safety

Retired Air Force pilot Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson, who was a senior military aide to President Bill Clinton, also asserts that Obama’s national security policies are weakening the military and endangering the country’s safety.

Author of the recent book, “Conduct Unbecoming – How Barack Obama is Destroying the Military and Endangering our Security,” Patterson said Obama is underfunding and misusing the military, making America more vulnerable.

Retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, recipient of the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, as well as other top retired officers, say Obama’s agenda is decimating the morale of the U.S. ranks to the point members no longer feel prepared to fight or have the desire to win.

“There is no doubt he [Obama] is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him” over such issues as “homosexuals, women in foxholes, the Obama sequester,” Brady told WND.

Brady, a legendary “Dust Off” air ambulance pilot in Vietnam who described his experiences in “Dead Men Flying: Victory in Viet Nam,” said, “The problem is military people will seldom, while on duty, go on the record over such issues, and many will not ever, no matter how true.

“I hear from many off the record who are upset with the current military leadership and some are leaving and have left in the past,” he said.

Brady, who has served as president of the Congressional  Medal of Honor Society, referred to additional problems in today’s military including “girly-men leadership [and] medals for not shooting and operating a computer. This president will never fight if there is any reason to avoid it and with a helpless military he can just point to our weakness and shrug his shoulders.”

Retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, who was a founding member of Delta Force and later deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence under President George W. Bush, tells WND it is worrying that four-star generals are being retired at the rate that has occurred under Obama.

“Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause,” Boykin said. “I believe there is a purging of the military. The problem is worse than we have ever seen.”

‘Demand resignation’

Vallely said the current crop of political leadership at the federal level must be forced to resign by the “demand resignation” process which he explained requires massive grassroots protests and social networking. As an example, he cited the public and media pressure that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

Vallely also has announced the formation of a “provisional leadership council” – a citizens’ commission – to scrutinize Obama administration actions on national security and economic issues.

To begin the process of “reclaiming America,” Vallely envisions an “American Leadership Council” to be comprised of 12 people who would hold “America’s interests first, not their own,” and be people from “proven leadership,” not “talking heads” and “community organizers.”

“These must be people who have led large businesses and/or held military positions of consequence,” Vallely said. “These must be people who hold loyalty, fealty and love for this country first, and most of all, they must be trustworthy.”

He told WND that he intends to announce their names shortly.

“Under the Obama administration, the military has not been appropriately used to improve diplomatic relations, largely because the military is not viewed as a mechanism to achieve diplomatic success,” Vallely said. “Instead, Obama employs it as a ‘nation-building’ tool, a function quite anathema to its very definition.”

“Now, it’s not even fighting, just assassinating individuals. Retreat is now known as ‘drawdown’ and victory is now known as ‘nation-building’ or ‘transitioning,’” he said.

Vallely said that while conservatives see the military as a “crucial component” of diplomacy,  Obama views it as a “hindrance.”

“Changing diplomacy,” he said, “therefore is being carried out in a number of ways by the Obama administration: diminishing the military role and leadership in diplomacy; manipulating the rules of engagement; and making the U.S. military irrelevant elsewhere.”

Trust Iran? What are we – stupid?

Posted on: Nov25 2013

The Obama administration is trumpeting a weekend deal with Iran and five other nations that will freeze certain parts of the Iranian nuclear program and open facilities for greater inspection in exchange for the relaxing of some crippling financial sanctions. But a Mideast expert tells WND it’s a grave mistake to trust Iran.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is incensed at the deal, calling it an “historic mistake.” Congressional Republicans, as well as many Democrats, are worried that the deal results in the U.S. giving up key diplomatic leverage while Iran technically gives up nothing.

The group responsible for exposing Iran’s clandestine nuclear program is also unimpressed. Officials with the National Council of Resistance of Iran, or NCRI, say the West wasted a golden opportunity to demand major Iranian concessions.

“The very fact that this regime agreed to whatever it agreed to shows their weakness, their vulnerability,” said Alireza Jafarzadeh, deputy director in the office of the U.S. representative of the NCRI. “This is something that should have been exploited. If the international community, and particularly the United States, were decisive enough, this was a regime that you could have actually forced them to abandon their entire program.”

Jafarzadeh told WND the Iranians came to the table for three main reasons, including the economic toll of sanctions, major protests against Ayatollah Khamenei and additional NCRI revelations of additional nuclear facilities.

“This was a regime that was in trouble. This was the time that you needed to increase the pressure and force them to make the serious concessions that they were supposed to do,” he said. “They didn’t press them hard enough. The agreement could have been much much stronger that would have in effect really abandoned and dismantled the nuclear weapons program of Iran. It didn’t.”

While President Obama said the deal removes the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran, Netanyahu and others believe it greatly increases the likelihood the Iranians will get the bomb because the deal provides legitimacy for the program and the easing of sanctions allows Iran to be more bold in pursuing its goals.

“Those are very valid allegations to take into consideration because you don’t want to provide financial assistance to this regime because that money is definitely going to be used, at least partially, in funding the very same program that you want to stop,” Jafarzadeh said.

Critics of the deal also point out Iran has repeatedly flouted United Nations Security Council sanctions, leading many to conclude Iran simply cannot be trusted to honor any agreement.

Is there any reason to think this time will be different?

“Absolutely not. They have never honored any agreement at all on any issues but particularly on the nuclear weapons program of Iran,” said Jafarzadeh, who also rips the agreement for completely ignoring Iran’s weaponization programs that are being developed simultaneously with the nuclear weapons.

“It’s not all about enrichment. It’s also about the nuclear weaponization program of Iran, the kind of research and development they have been doing along with their enrichment program,” said Jafarzadeh, who added that it’s not too late for the U.S. and its allies to demand access to those sites as well if Iran truly has nothing to hide.

The agreement struck over the weekend is designed to last six months and give the seven nations time to forge a permanent treaty concerning Iranian nukes. Jafarzadeh said where we stand six months from now depends mostly on the United States.

“It all depends on how seriously and how strongly this administration will pursue it,” he said. “If Iran detects that the White House is pretty much happy with what they got, they can play games with the White House and the State Department about this. Then you’re either going to be back to square one or in a worse situation six months from now.”

He added, “On the other hand, if this administration would stress on some of the points in this agreement and really really press it hard, we could actually be several steps ahead of where we are.

“The ball is in the court of the United States. How they’re going to pursue this and where we’re going to stand six months from now, it’s all in the hands of the U.S. period.”

Diplomatic insanity

Posted on: Nov25 2013

Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” The current sanctions strategy in Iran is exactly what took place in North Korea. Just when the effect of sanctions was beginning to take hold, the regime announced an agreement, only to be broken at a later time. In the case of North Korea, this usually happened right before their brutal winter.

Repeating the same mistakes Clinton made with North Korea will not change the outcome with Iran. Six months from now, it will be springtime in Tehran.

Fox launches full-frontal assault on black mobs

Posted on: Nov20 2013

The Knockout Game features young black males attacking white victims on the street.

After scores of reports by WND about the problem of black-mob violence in the U.S. and a lethal practice of attacking random whites and Jews called “the Knockout Game,” Fox News has launched a full-frontal assault on the shocking phenomenon its own analysts say is intentionally suppressed by national news media.

At least three of the top-rated cable network’s prime-time broadcasts focused on the issue Tuesday night, with the common conclusion that it’s a racist crime trend of black individuals pummeling white victims.

“It’s savagery. It’s very difficult to watch those tapes,” former CBS News correspondent Bernard Goldberg told Bill O’Reilly on “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Black mobs routinely terrorize cities across the country, but the media and government are silent. Read the detailed account of rampant racial crime – and get links to videos providing the proof – in “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”

“The reason most of the people watching us tonight are probably shocked by these videos and don’t know anything about them … is because they’re getting precious little attention – no attention that we could find in the New York Times and the Washington Post or the network evening newscasts. And I think there’s a reason for this, and it’s not a journalistic reason.”

“Just let’s imagine that what we’re seeing here is white kids attacking black people,” Goldberg continued, “that in cities like St. Louis and Washington and Milwaukee and Hoboken, N.J., and Syracuse, N.Y., and other cities, young white kids got together and said, ‘Let’s start this game. We’ll call it the Knockout.’ And they go around and some black guy is coming home from work and out of the blue, they just hit him in the face as hard as they can and he goes down. And then their idiotic white friends giggle about it like a bunch of hyenas, and then they post it on the Internet. That would obviously be a national news story because it’s orchestrated racial violence. But this isn’t.”

Goldberg told O’Reilly it was a “white liberal paternalistic decision” for most media to ignore and hide the issue.

“The white liberals in the media at places that aren’t covering this are saying, ‘You know what? We don’t want to give any ammo to those white racist conservatives out there (because they equate conservatism with racism anyway), so let’s just make believe this isn’t happening.’ How despicable. How disgraceful to make believe something that is spread from one city to another isn’t a legitimate news story. …

“Most black kids don’t do this, but a disproportionate number are either doing that, or are walking into stores and hauling entire racks of clothing out onto the street. This is like ‘Lord of the Flies.’ This is crazy stuff and the black establishment, the civil-rights establishment, has been predictably silent on this.”

Some Knockout Game suspects

O’Reilly tried to explain the violence by blacks against whites by saying blacks are “sold a bill of good by the civil-rights people that … ‘because you’re unhappy, it’s the whites doing it to you,’ and so they’re whacking whites. But with the Internet and the notoriety, this thing could really get out of control.”

Goldberg flayed black leaders for their absence on the matter, especially after their media omnipresence with the case of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot and killed by George Zimmerman during a scuffle in Sanford, Fla.

“You had [Jesse] Jackson, you had [Al] Sharpton, you had sanctimonious Tavis Smiley all going on television … painting a fairy-tale picture about how young black males are being hunted down by white people. It was absurd, but they went on doing that,” said Goldberg. “And on this [black-on-white violence], they say nothing because – this is important – because it speaks to their failure as black leaders. They don’t know what to do about this.”

Meanwhile on “Hannity,” former NYPD detective Bo Dietl blasted media suppression of the trend, as well as how police agencies have handled the cases.

“The liberal news media doesn’t want to say what it is. It’s gangs of black youths attacking whites,” Dietl told host Sean Hannity.

“It’s a race-based thing. It’s the black youths against the white individual. Not even just a man. It’s against defenseless women and defenseless people and they hit ‘em in the face and they try to knock ‘em out. People have been killed. My problem is, they gotta take this crime, and they gotta categorize it the way it’s supposed to be categorized. It’s black-on-white crime. That’s racist.”

Also appearing on the program was noted criminal defense attorney Remy Spencer who agreed the Knockout Game was severely underreported.

“I think people in today’s society are too politically correct and afraid to talk about violence from black people on white people,” Spencer said. “But if you reverse it, look at the George Zimmerman trial. That got national attention, not just because a young man died, but because of the race issue. I think media outlets are afraid of reporting this kind of crime.”

Spencer explained there was no guesswork or speculation about the racial angle, as the black assailants themselves are self-publicizing their mayhem online.

“They’re posting these things on Facebook, on Twitter and on YouTube,” she said. “In one that I reviewed before coming on your show tonight, one of the black young men who did this, his caption was that “White Girl Bleed a Lot.’ There has been a book published with that title talking about these Knockout Games. So we know that the evidence is there. It’s up to law enforcement to prosecute them for these serious crimes.”

Not to be left out, Greta Van Susteren, host of “On the Record,” lashed into those taking part in the Knockout Game, stating, “This is no game. It is a mean, dangerous and deadly crime.”

In a personal commentary, Van Susteren said Americans have to address this problem as soon as possible:

“No one wants to get near the topic of race, but we also can’t run from this one. People are getting hurt, they’re getting murdered. And even those who live in these communities where this is happening, they have a right to be safe, and they don’t have to live in fear of having their children hurt or even poisoned by ugly peer pressure, right?

“This game has to be condemned, and in order for the condemnation to have any impact whatsoever, it has to come from important role models to these young teens. I beg of Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton and even President Obama to step up right now and speak out. Your silence will speak volumes, but your voice could make a big difference. Don’t wait. Be leaders. They need you. We need you.”

Terrorists slaughter African elephants

Posted on: Nov14 2013

(WASHINGTON TIMES) A growing number of terrorist groups in Africa are turning to the illegal trade of elephant tusks to finance their operations, cashing in on a massive demand for ivory spurred by a burgeoning, wealthier middle class in Asia.

Al Qaeda-affiliated al-Shabab in SomaliaJoseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army in central Africa and Boko Haram in Nigeria are among the militants making money from trafficking ivory tusks from slaughtered elephants to pay their fighters and buy arms and ammunition.

“For al-Shabab, ivory, like charcoal, is just a fast and relatively easy way to make some cash, which is needed first of all to pay a salary to its militants, estimated at around 5,000 people,” said Andrea Crosta, executive director of Elephant Action League, who along with Nir Kalron, chief executive officer of the private security firm Maisha Consulting, has recently investigated al-Shabab’s links to ivory trafficking.
