Joel J Sprayregan: “But the events of Christmas 2009 show that war is being waged against us on vast fronts. Tony Blair grasped more shrewdly than our own leaders that the threat comes not only from al-Qaeda, but from all of radical Islam when he recently said, “We will defeat this terrorism when we understand that it is one battle, one struggle (against) a global movement with an ideology.” Blair knows what he is talking about because Muslim students at British universities are imbued with murderous ideology; four heads of student Islamic societies have been charged with serious terrorism.”

War is also being waged on us BY OUR OWN PRESS
This is something I refer to repeatedly at this site: the press’s general and ongoing denials over attacks by Muslims.
Understandable silence from the press, of course.
Since the “free” liberal press has spent most of the time since 9/11 blaming the west for Islamist fundamentalism, they can hardly turn round and call themselves misguided, much less liars. Those are descriptions they reserve for western leaders, clearly.
But life and reality continues. As five men are convicted of charges at a Luton army homecoming (Sky News), and as Anjem Choudary’s crowd of peace’n’lovers cancel their planned march through the town where killed soldiers are repatriatiated, Wotton Bassett, ordinary people in Afghanistan say that they think things in Afghanistan are improving.
Now there’s some headline news for the Mail and the Independent. Hang on – I’ll do a quick search … Right – The Mail came out on top!
But its poll (dated 23rd August 2009) was headed thus:
“‘Does Labour care at all?’ Now even Bob Ainsworth’s friend whose son died in Afghanistan bomb blast condemns defence minister
And a shock new poll revealed that a majority of voters – 69 per cent – now want Britain to pull out.”
“Of those questioned, 68% now back the presence of US troops in Afghanistan, compared with 63% a year ago.
For Nato troops, including UK forces, support has risen from 59% to 62%.”
“SHOCK POLL! Most Afghans want us to remain in their country”
As part of the narrative to this site, which is at least partly to show that Tony Blair was RIGHT about his analysis on the threat from Islamic fundamentalism AND on his alliance with the USA in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is well worth reading this excellent article at American Thinker – Merry Christmas from the World of Islam by Joel J. Sprayregen
“With attention focused on the flagrant security breaches around Flight 253 on Christmas Day, too little has been made of the timing of the attack. Most readers will be surprised to learn that this was not the only Christmas attack on Christians. Here is a list of other holiday attacks which I found without extensive research:
- On December 23, a bomb was detonated near the Syrian Orthodox church of St. Thomas in Mosul, Iraq.
- On the same day, a bomb exploded in the same city outside the Chaldean church of St. George, killing three people.
- Fifty Muslims barred the doors of the Tafat Church in northern Algeria to stop a Christmas service. According to the Algerian newspaper El Watan, the Muslims threatened to kill the pastor.
- On Christmas Eve, armed Muslims attacked worshipers at a church in Kalar Kahar, Pakistan, injuring 65 Christian women and children. Local police were called but refused to help.
- On December 17, about a thousand Muslims attacked the nearly-completed church of St. Albert, which was being readied for Christmas Mass, in Bekasi Regency, near Jakarta, Indonesia. The Muslims carried tanks of kerosene with which they set the church afire.
- In Nag Hamadi, Egypt, near Luxor, gunfire from a speeding car directed at worshipers leaving midnight mass on Coptic Christian Christmas (January 7) killed seven. The assailants escaped; Copts claimed that police sided with the Muslims who attacked them. A Coptic priest called it “a terrorist attack at a sensitive time.” The head of the interfaith committee at al-Azhar University, Egypt’s foremost Islamic institution (where President Obama spoke last June), said the attack “wasn’t motivated by religious differences,” but out of the region’s strong “concept of revenge” over an alleged sexual crime by a Copt last year.
There is no doubt that one of the principal conditions of equity consists in banishing infidels from any distinction and any possibility of raising their status, and reducing them to humiliation and abasement.

Slow, aren’t we?
1. Guardian: Islam Channel in Britain – platform for radical cleric with links to Christmas Day bomber.
A London-based satellite broadcaster that describes itself as “the voice of authority for Muslims in the UK” has been accused of giving a platform to Anwar al-Awlaki, the extremist cleric with alleged links to al-Qaida and to the man charged with trying to blow up a transatlantic jet on Christmas Day.
The Islam Channel, a free-to-air English-language channel that claims to be “a trustworthy source to the two million-plus population of Muslims in the UK”, last year carried adverts for a box set of DVDs of Awlaki’s sermons and for at least two events at which the cleric was due to be the star speaker via a video link.
2. British educated Christmas Day Bomber. Odd how no-one noticed him. Odder still that no-one told our allies WHY he was not allowed back into Britain. (Clue: because he had signed up to a bogus University in London. Something to do with jihad training? Maybe. Something to do with not wishing to broadcast our inability to STOP such jihad colleges? Again, maybe. The British press do not seem all that keen to pursue this.
I wonder why not. Perhaps they are too busy preparing copy for their reports on the real terrorists at the Trial of Tony Blair – I mean – Iraq Inquiry. Tomorrow another hate-figure Alastair Campbell will be dragged acoss the press’s coals after his Iraq Inquiry appearance. The press, in their responsible way, have a duty to get their priorities right.

3. Boston Islamist terrorist boycotts her own trial. OK, that’s fine with us. Anything else, Ma’am?
ODD THAT THE PRESS REFUSES TO SEE THE LINKS AND TO JOIN THE DOTS
