Maneeza Hossain for the Weekly Standard: One year after the the implementation of military rule in Bangladesh
The election of the new South Korean president might mark the end of appeasement toward the terrorist Stalinist regime in Pyongyang. All signals are so far encouraging.
As I wrote in my Human Events op-ed column, the Stop the Islamization of Europe rally was officially banned by Brussels’ socialist mayor. However, in sign of defience, they held the rally anyway, but – as predicted – Belgian police arrested several demonstrators.They were all released, but this provides more evidence of the totalitarian attitude of European leaders when faced with criticism of their appeasement policies toward Radical Islam. While SIOE rally was banned, the Arab-European League (financed by Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood) and Jew and America hating Extreme Leftist conspiracy nuts, had their rallies ALLOWED. Also, as usual, the European media (regardless of their political tendency) have once again forgotten their duty of informing in an unbiased and fair manner and are labeling SIOE protesters as”far-right”. This is far from being true. While there may have been some extreme right-wing xenophobic intruders, the SIOE committee is formed by people from the center, the democratic right and left. Indeed, most of them are not even interested in politics. Most are ordinary citizens well aware of the threat their continent faces nowadays. To the European leaders and media, the SIOE is “far-right”, while Arab-European League and Leftist Extremists are just peaceful demonstrators calling peacefully for the peaceful Islamization and subjugation of infidels, and peacefully blaming the biggest tragedy of this century on American and Jews. Protesting radical Islam is “far-right”; anti-semitism and Islamism is “legitimate free speech”. This is how morally-blind European rulers have become.
Here are photos from today’s unauthorized rally, where demonstrators defied Belgian authorities in order to protect their right to free speech.
Demonstrators wear mock-Muslim scarves and tee-shirts reading “Stop Islamisation”
And here’s how Belgian Gestapo deals with those who refuse to surrender.

Ten years ago, Hong Kong was handed over to communist China. No popular referendum was held and apparently a significant majority there would be ready to rise up against any attempt at crusing dissent or basic freedoms. Hong Kong democrats worry judicial independence won’t last . Like every year, thousands marched demanding that democracy be preserved. Will it? Time will say, but I do not trust the Chinese communists, nor their lackeys in power in Hong Kong.

Palestinians pick up what they sowed. Welcome to the Islamist state of Hamas . The Palestinians, a death cult, violent and war-mongering society, could just realize how wrong they were when they murdered Jews to force Israel out of Gaza. And they could start asking Israel to return. On the one side, Israel’s Olmert administration caved in and left Gaza, ignoring the consequences for Israel and the region as a whole. Its far from being a victory for Israel; Gaza is going to be an Al-Qaeda state. Israel should have never handed over Gaza to the Palestinians. The int.l community is desperately looking for a solution. Theirs are crocodile tears. After all, it’s them who pressed Israel to leave the place. Now what? Hard to say. It’s a civil war, but the world community would do good not to send in the ‘peacekeepers’. Let the Palestinians slaughter each other. Yes, that’s what they do best. That’s their raison d’etre. Don’t send our men in uniform to risk their life to save who loves death over life and war over peaceful coexistance. Also, as Magdi Allam says, this situation proves that there will never be a Palestinian state. Because it’s the Palestinians themselves who never wanted it. All they want is the destruction of Israel. And let me say something: I fear for Israel. I fear for her, because I feel as if they are committing suicide. An Islamist state at her doors will only speed up her destruction. Unless Israel elects credible leaders with guts, its end is inevitable. I pray for Israel and for it to wake up sooner than later. You can’t make peace or concessions, let alone talk with who wants to destroy you. You have to act. Wake up, Israel, pls. Re-occupy Gaza. Use your military might. Destroy Hamas, Fatah and the Islamic Jihad. Plug your ears in order not to hear the international community that led to this situation. Enter Gaza to stay. But don’t do it for the Palestinians. Do it for your survival. And to the world: don’t send in men to die for a death cult society. Rather, send them where they’re urgently needed: Darfur. Because there is where people cannot wait too long.

People of Sderot, I am with you. Sderot residents call for action in Gaza. Poll reveals 71 percent of Sderot residents want military action in Gaza Strip, even if it means increased Qassam attacks; 94 percent blame government for poor security situation. A woman was killed by a rocket and Israel did its duty by fighting back and targetting Qassam cells. According to the Italian FM, Israel should simply sit back and stand idly by while the Nazis massacre the Jews. Here’s a short videoclip showing a Qassam rocket falling right next to a Sderot gas station.

Bella riflessione quella di Enzo di 1972, della quale condivido tutto. Che i liberali in Italia non esistano, è un dato di fatto. Premetto che della politica italiana non mi interesso granchè, mentre sono più concentrata su quella americana, dato che gli Usa saranno presto il mio nuovo paese d’accoglienza. Sono di destra, ma ritengo che la vera destra è liberale. Il che significa che se sono contro gli integralisti islamici, non posso appoggiare gli integralisti religiosi anche cattolici che vorrebbero limitare le scelte individuali di ogni essere umano. Si può essere d’accordo o meno con il riconoscimento giuridico delle coppie di fatto e delle convivenze (io sono d’accordo), ma anche chi non è d’accordo e preferisce sposarsi, non può e non ha il diritto di proibire agli altri di convivere. Al giorno d’oggi la Chiesa ha contribuito ad allontanare i credenti per via delle sue posizioni integraliste su aborto, unioni civili, convivenze ,eccetera. Difendo la convinvenza perchè la convinvenza permette all coppia di conoscersi meglio e di sposarsi solo se si è sicuri. Si dice che tanto si può divorziare.Il divorzio la Chiesa lo ha avversato per molto tempo. E’ così facile divorziare, dovendo andare in giro per tribunali ed avvocati? I figli soffrono molo per la separazione dei genitori. Fosse per me, io conviverei tutta la vita, sarà perchè sono atea e non credo nel sacramento del matrimonio. Ma ritengo che chi decide di convivere debba avere GLI STESSI DIRITTI di chi è sposato. E ciò vale anche per le coppie omosessuali. Non sto dicendo che debbano avere più diritti, perchè io sono la prima a non volerlo. Ma gli stessi diritti, questo sì. Non sono a favore del matrimonio tra omosessuali, nè all’adozione dei bambini. Ma sulle unioni civili sono d’accordo. Visto che difendiamo tanto la famiglia e siamo per il matrimonio religioso, cerchiamo anche di dire alla nostra classe dirigente che se oggi non ci si sposa, è anche perchè non si hanno le possibilità economiche di farlo. Da una parte abbiamo gli ipocriti che vanno al Family Day, ma allo stesso tempo sono loro stessi divorziati, e fidanzati con ragazze giovani (vedasi Casini) oppure tradiscono la moglie e si portano un’harem di donne (come Berlusconi). Dall’altra abbiamo chi rivendica orgogli laici dimenticandosi che siamo comunque un paese laico e vede pericoli laddove non ce ne sono, mentre dimentica che al giorno d’oggi le questioni davvero importanti sono la difesa dell’Occidente dall’aggressione islamica che sta avvenendo mentre noi si parla di DICO. Inoltre, prima di essere papisti a tutti i costi, ricordiamoci che il Papa ha accolto a braccia aperte il macellaio islamico Mohammed Khatami, mentre a chi si permette di criticare le sue posizioni integraliste sulle questioni etiche, lo bolla come “terrorista”. Invece, per il Papa terrorista Khatami non lo è, vero? E’ una riflessione serena, non anti-clericale, perchè non sono anti-clericale. Semplicemente sono di una destra libeale che, come diceva Popper, non può non essere a favore dei diritti dell’individuo a fare ciò che vuole a patto che ciò non violi i diritti di terze persone.

Desperation in Cuba, where three soldiers defected with their weapons and tried to hijack a plane in order to flee the Gulag. So far, the regime is covering up the incident, probably because of fear that others could be encouraged to do the same. And, unsurprisingly, the Cuban regime is blaming the US. Everybody knows that people in Cuba cannot leave the country without the regime’s permission and the slavery they go through everyday prompts them to escape the Gulag by any mean. If the regime allowed people to leave whenever they want, these things wouldn’t happen. Frustration of the youth in Cuba is very high and it includes people forced to serve in the Cuban army. The three black men now face death penalty.
Below are the three young soldiers who defected, took their weapons and tried to hijack a plan to flee Cuba. They wanted to be free. The opposition movements are unanimously calling on all the other Cuban soldiers to free themselves from slavery and join the people.

Castro’s regime sends its death-squad of women – many of which relatives of members of the Cuban ‘parliament’ – to intimidate the Ladies in White who were marching silently and peacefully. A Lady says she could identify some of the worms being members of the State Security. Here is the video of the incident. As you’ll see at the end of the video, people watched with fear and, when asked their opinion, many run away out of fear of reprisals in case they expressed their opinion (if they agreed with the mob, they would have no problem to say it. The fact is that they don’t, that’s why they didn’t speak to the interviewer). Just one guy had the courage to answer, and said : “I agree with everything [with the Ladies’ demands]; you can’t talk here”. See the photos of ordinary civilians accepting flowers from the peaceful activists.

The slogans of the mob were the usual: ‘Mercenaries’, ‘Go away’, ‘Long Live communism, down with imperialism’, ‘down with the counterrevolutionaries’ and obscenities. Often, they are drunk. Here is a photo showing who’s the sister of the woman below.
The Ladies in White are seen on the left, dressed in white, as always.
The Ladies defy the mob by yelling ‘Liberty!”
The Ladies tell about the aggression. Laura Pollan says they will not be intimidated, they will go on no matter if they are killed. Gisela Delgado says she could identify members of the state security among the mob and lots of people encouraged the Ladies in White by saying “Go ahead!” and nobody has ever said anything bad. Bertha Soler adds that around 50 workers welcomed them. She also affirms she was insulted for the colour of her skin.

R.I.P., Miguel Valdes Tamayo. Castros’ crimes know no limit, not even human mercy. In our last post, we posted this pic showing ex-political prisoner and independent librarian Miguel Vazquez Tamayo delivering food and medicine to a poor Cuban lady. It was on Christmas. On December 31, he was hospitalized for heart problems, due to the continuous harassment he faced from the police and the fascist mobs. For months, he was denied the permit to leave Cuba to receive treatement in the U.S. So, it happens that on January 11, 2007, Miguel has died of heart attack. And his death adds up to the tens of thousands under the communist tyranny. Rest in Peace, Miguel. Official statement by the Assembly to Promote the Civil Society (in Spanish). Cuban dissidents pay respects to formerly jailed activist who died of heart attack

She is author of a recently-published book entitled: “The denied woman: from female genital mutilation to liberation”, in which she tells about the oppression of women in the Islamic society and how we can do to help them liberate themselves from the Dark Ages Islamist yoke. During a TV debate where she defended her feminist positions, Daniela was faced by an angry imam who praised poligamy, gender apartheid and the mandatory veil. This imam has recently affirmed that “all the mayors have the duty to build mosques”. Last day, Santanchè has received a letter from London, in which she is threatened with death. The letter contains photos of Theo Van Gogh and Ayaan Hirsi Ali and states: “We will get rid of you”. Santanchè lives accompained by bodyguards since these sad events.

Cuban dissident deported from Bolivia to Colombia after criticizing Morales
La Asamblea para Promover la Sociedad Civil, quiere dar a conocer información sobre el I Congreso de Bibliotecas Independientes: Miembros del Movimiento Femenino Martha Abreu, de Santa Clara, Villa Clara, distribuyeron literatura censurada por el Gobierno, en respuesta a las orientaciones del Congreso de Bibliotecas Independientes y en contra de los 48 años de dictadura comunista. La actividad se realize el pasado 2 de enero en las calles de los Repartos Oeste y Virginia de la ciudad de Santa Clara. Se repartieron Boletines de Mar por Cuba; de Plantados hasta la libertad y la democracia en Cuba; del Comité Cubano de Derechos Humanos; folletos Cuba: un analisis social, económico y politico actual; La economía cubana de hoy; Salvación o condenación; la Declaración Universal de Derechos Humanos; Para Cuba ya es hora y Yo no coopero con la dictadura.
The Assembly to Promote the Civil Society’s Martha Beatriz Roque sent the following pics, showing the delivery of products to poor Cubans by members of the Assembly. The products are sent by the exile groups based in Miami.Please, notice how these people are not afraid to sign opposition documents, nor to reveal their names, even though they may risk jail or high fines. This shows once again that the opposition movements is growing more and more popular, despite all efforts by the regime to discredite it. This is the true Cuban people, not those who participate to the infamous repudiation acts.
Copy of the Assembly document signed by the lady.
Former political prisoner and independent librarian Miguel Vazquez Tamayo delivers products to the poor lady, who signs the document.
Another resident receives the products and signs the Assembly document confirming that he has received the items.
This man and his daughter asked to go to a photo reporter’s house. They said they feel ashamed to show the bad conditions they live in. The man shows the Assembly document he signed.
Martha Beatriz also sent us a report (here, in Spanish) about a poor young Cuban couple who suffers from the HIV disease. They don’t have a house, so they sleep in an empty house and the regime wants to kick them out of there. The woman is only 16-years old and is not known if her baby also has been infected with HIV. Martha sent us a couple of photos and the original documents of the regime’s authorities (here and here), who still refuse to assist the poor couple and even imposed a very high fine. The couple sent to Martha a letter, asking for help. The Assembly to Promote the Civil Society has given the couple half of the money needed to pay the fine. The money were politely donated by the exile groups.

Several weeks ago, our friend Darsi Ferrer from Havana said he and others were planning a peaceful demonstration near the UN offices in the Cuban capital to mark the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A few days ago, he sent us a statement where he said he was expecting repression of this march. Such a prediction turned to be true and today, a hired fascist Castroite mob led by and belonging to the State Security and the Communist militias (self-proclaimed ‘rapid response brigades’) today attacked the peaceful dissidents who were marching silently – WITHOUT ANY BANNER NOR SHOUTING ANY SLOGAN – around the UN offices to pay homage to the Declaration. The usual slogans shouted at the dissidents were ‘mercenaries’, ‘worms’, ‘scum0’ and others. Darsi and some other were taken away by force by the mob on board of buses brought in for the occasion. ALL THIS, IN FRONT OF THE FOREIGN JOURNALISTS. The unpopular mob even said they would kill the dissidents if they could. This is the very regime that, while ordering repression of a march in honor of the Declaration, sits at the UN’s Human Rights Commission. Read more here

The Iraq Study Group recommends appeasing the world’s worst tyrants and terrorist regimes responsible for chaos in Iraq and the sectarian conflict. If he has still the guts, President Bush has to FIRMLY reject ALL the ‘recommendations’ of this disastrous report. Failing to do so would pave the way to the suicide of the democratic nations. Meanwhile, Robert Spencer, whose blog I admire much, is dead wrong when he writes that the U.S. must abandon the democratic initiatives in the ME. Spencer ignores that in the past couple of years, the Bush administration abandoned such initiatives. They’re not futile, Mr. Spencer. I totally agree when he says that the US need to shift toward an offensive anti-jihad posture, but returning to a pre-9/11 policy of appeasing ‘moderate’ Middle Eastern regimes did not work, and the very same 9/11 attacks are a prove of that (the murderers were from countries we have always appeased, Saudi Arabia and Egypt). UPDATE: President Bush has rejected most of the report. That’s great news, although he should reject all of it.
The Europeans should mind their own business and remember that it’s the President of the United States him who decides his country’s policies. In the meantime, and no surprise, terrorists rejoice and promise new attacks.
