CAIR's Jihad Against Marines Gearing Up
PipelineNews.org reports that CAIR is trying to ignite another angry Islamic "incident" like the European Mohammadoodle cartoon situation. We've seen the fruit of their efforts right here as multiple CAIR-bots post links to CAIR's website, where CAIR is denouncing the Marines. They're pretending to be providing an innocuous link to a taken-down video, but they're actually just helping CAIR spread their propaganda.
June 13, 2006 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On June 12, the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR] a Saudi funded Islamist pressure group kicked off an email campaign designed gin-up anti-military sentiment at a time when their allies in the American press are conducting their own campaign of character assassination against U.S. Marines involved in a firefight in Haditha, Iraq.

The CAIR email states:

"'MARINES' CHEER SONG ABOUT KILLING IRAQI CIVILIANS

Song's lyrics: 'I blew those little f**kers to eternity'

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 6/12/06) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on the Pentagon and Congress to investigate a music video posted on the Internet that seems to show U.S. Marines cheering a song that glorifies the killing of Iraqi civilians.

CAIR said the four-minute video, called "hadji girl," purports to be a "marine in iraq singing a song about hadji." (A "Hajji" is a person who has made the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, but the term has often been used as a pejorative by U.S. troops in Iraq.) The song, posted online in March, tells of a U.S. Marine's encounter with an Iraqi woman. It has been viewed by almost 50,000 people.

The song's lyrics include: "I grabbed her little sister and put her in front of me. As the bullets began to fly, the blood sprayed from between her eyes, and then I laughed maniacally. . .I blew those little f**kers to eternity . . .They should have known they were f**king with the Marines." Members of the audience, not shown in the video, laughed and cheered wildly for these lyrics.

We have not been able to determine if the singer in the video is indeed a Marine, regardless CAIR seriously and intentionally misrepresents the song as a celebration of gratuitous violence against Iraqi civilians.

"Hadji Girl" is a ballad about a Marine firefight in Iraq.

In the heat of battle a young girl appears out of nowhere and invites this Marine to meet her family. She is leading him into an ambush but he doesn't know it. When the two of them arrive at her home, the girl's father and brother open fire, the Marine hits the ground and the girl is killed by her brother and father's gunfire - "threw open the door and I hit the floor 'cause her brother and father shot her." The girl's father and brother are still intent on killing the Marine so he grabs the girl's sister and the brother and father then proceed to gun her down also in their haste to kill the Marine.

The Marine then "locks and loads" stating he "blew those little fuckers to eternity."

So the song is about a young woman luring a Marine into an ambush where she and her sister are killed by her jihadi father and brother, who in turn are killed with great justification by the Marine.

It's quite clear that what CAIR is attempting to do here is create another Muslim cartoon incident which is not surprising, because CAIR is no stranger to controversy.

Symbol of propaganda
An Israeli investigation has concluded that the explosion that killed eight Palestinian civilians on a Gaza beach came from a Hamas militant mine and not an Israeli shell. I now am waiting for Abbas to a) apologize for accusing the Israelis of committing genocide and b) tell the world that the "genocidal act" that brought tears to his eyes was carried out by Hamas.
According to the findings, shrapnel removed from two wounded Palestinians taken to Israeli hospitals showed that the explosives were not made in Israel, the Israeli officials said.

In addition, the inquiry found that the last Israeli shell was fired in the area seven minutes before the blast, the officials said. A Palestinian group said the blast occurred while Israeli forces were still firing. And the blast's crater — which the military saw on television and through surveillance equipment — appeared to be from an explosion in the sand, not from a shelling, they said.

The explosion in the northern Gaza Strip went off by a Palestinian family that had been enjoying a seaside picnic. Seven relatives and another man were killed. Video of a Palestinian girl crying over her father's lifeless body was broadcast around the world and became a symbol of the tragedy.
She's a symbol of a tragedy brought to her by her own people. I wonder how long she'll continue to be a symbol now.

The poor against the desperate
The Minutemen have been called "racists", and "vigilantes", and a "white man's group." Check out who else has enlisted in the Minuteman Project: Black activist joins border war
Ted Hayes is no dilettante. Since the mid-1980s, he has been Los Angeles' most visible homeless activist, voluntarily living among the poor on Skid Row.

Hayes, 55, has been described as an urban Moses for the destitute. At 6 foot 3 and weighing the same 145 pounds since high school, Hayes has cultivated a made-for-TV image; with large, languid eyes, he has grown his gray hair into dreadlocks, topped with a skullcap "because Jesus was a Jew," he says.

Now, his evolution from Democrat to independent to Republican has taken him to new ground that has rankled many blacks and Latinos.

Hayes is publicly denouncing illegal immigration, saying that undocumented workers are harming his efforts to secure limited public resources to fight homelessness. He says they take away low-skilled jobs that the black working poor often filled.

Monsters
What's worse, child molesters or child abusers? Or is there a same hell for both? The stepfather of a 4-year-old girl poured bleach in her eyes as punishment for peeing in her pants. Her mother took her to church the next day, asking for "prayers and healing", and when the pastor's family noticed that the baby's eyes were swollen shut they insisted she be taken to the hospital or they'd call the police. There, the little girl was found to have a broken left arm and right shoulder, cigarette burns on her arms and legs, and bruises all over her body. The biggest bruises were on her knees and they were caused by spending hours kneeling in the corner as a punishment.

I can't even describe how sick this makes me. This is the second horrific child-abuse story I read in two days, the other one was about six-year-old Jeffrey Baldwin whose grandparents were recently sentenced to prison for starving him to death.
