The genocidal and blood-thirsty gang of Hamas fired seventeen rockets into the Israeli city of Sderot, injuring several children, among the others. They threatens to fire dozens more. The threat must be seriously. After all, they can thank their European and American donors for giving them the possibility to build such expensive rockets. Our taxes at work. Of course, Israel is morally obligated to defend herself and announces it will respond harshly. Prepare for the international outcry from the usual hypocrits. One Jerusalem has a couple of must-see videos showing the aftermath of the attack and the moment when some rockets were being launched.

Saudi women suffer from the oppression of an Islamic misogynist society. Their husbands beat them on a daily basis, hold them as slaves in their houses. That is why, some young women, when the husbands are away, enter in chats and have virtual sex, or make imaginary streap-teases with their web-cams to show themselves to thousands of unknown men, mostly young and sex-thirsty men who are repressed in a society which considers sex as a sin.

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. These three young guys are facing certain death in the hands of castro’s henchmen. They represent the feeling of frustraion of million of other young Cubans.

A government – and part of the Italian right – of irresponsible people. The Italian government and some parties on the so-called ‘Right’, are calling for the participation of the Taliban assassins and Dark Ages thugs to the international conference on Afghanistan. If you thought the world had already gone enough nuts, you did not yet hear of this latest madness. There must be no compromise nor any sort of dialogue with the enemy, whether the Taliban, Hamas, Fatah, Hizballah, Assad or the Mullahs.

Un governo (e parte di una ‘destra’, quella italiana, che ha ancora bisogno di imparare cos’è fare politica seria) di irresponsabili ed immaturi. l’Unione vuole una Conferenza di pace con gli sgozzatori

“Libero” is maybe the only Italian daily which is politically-uncorrect and chooses the appropriate headlines. The title on today’s front page comments the absurd decision of the government to release five Taliban mass murderers in exchange for the liberation of an Italian hostage (pictured on the left, with a turban). That was the taliban demand to Italy, which caved in like a good dhimmi, thus inflicting a blow to the war on terror and dark ages.

“THE GOVERNMENT HAS SOLD ITSELF – Italy caved in to the Taliban’s blackmail. Five dangerous terrorists are free and [Italy] paid the enemy. This time, the Left likes the dirty work.

March 21: it’s the Iranian New Year, Nowrooz. Millions of Iranians defy the regime’s ban in order to celebrate their pre-Islamic traditions. White House: Presidential Message on Nowruz Celebrations. To my Iranian friends and brothers:


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.

La dictadura castrista envía a una turba de energúmenos para amedrentar a las Damas de Blanco . este tipo de actos “están preparados por el Gobierno porque el pueblo en ningún momento salió a la calle a repudiarnos. Es una organización del Gobierno”. “Nos estaban esperando. Es un acto brutal y yo identifiqué a personas de la Seguridad del Estado que hicieron actos de repudio frente a mi casa”

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.

Three more Taliban thugs will be again free to join the terror war on Afghanistan.

Il governo italiano fa la corte ai Talebani ed si arrende alle loro richieste.

I have always affirmed that Africa’s evils are to blame on the ignorance of many African societies, but – above all – on the leaders of each African country. Not only dictators, corrupt rulers, but “magicians” turned “presidents”, too. As in the case of Gambia, where the president claims he dreamed a ‘powerful medicine’ capable to treat HIV, creating false hopes among the thousands of AIDS victims of his country.

Ho sempre detto che i mali dell’Africa sono da imputare principalmente all’ignoranza di molte comunità locali, ma sopratutto, ai leader di ogni nazione del Continente. Non solo dittatori e governanti corrotti che si arricchiscono intascandosi i soldi degli aiuti internazionali che dovrebbero andare alle popolazioni. Ma molto è imputabile anche ai cosidetti ‘maghi’ divenuti ‘presidenti’, come nel caso del Gambia, il cui presidente afferma di aver sognato una miracolosa cura contro l’AIDS. Povera Africa..

If you still have any doubt, these two polls might help convince you to choose Rudy Giuliani as GOP nomination. Or you may face 5 years of Clinton White House.

Avrete sicuramente sentito i telegiornali italiani parlare solo di Hillary Clinton. E’ stranoto che i media nostrani facciano il tifo per la cornuta moglie di Bill, con la scusa che sarebbe la prima donna presidente. Visto che di primati si tratta, perchè ad esempio i tg non dicono che anche Giuliani batterebbe un record storico? Infatti, sarebbe il prima italo-americano presidente Usa. E, stando a quasi tutti i recenti sondaggi, lui batterebbe di gran lunga sia la Clinton che gli altri candidati democratici. Per chi non lo sapesse, Giuliani è sì un uomo con le palle in politica estera (e non si farebbe influenzare dagli isterismo europei ed onusiani, come sta facendo Bush); egli è anche favorevole al diritto all’aborto, all’eutanasia,alle unioni civili ed alla ricerca sulle cellule staminali embrionali. Ecco perchè è molto amato anche dai non repubblicani. Ovviamente, ci saranno le nomination sia democratiche che repubblicane. E stando ai sondaggi tra i repubblicani, lui non avrebbe difficoltà a vincere la nomination per la corsa alla Casa Bianca. Se di record si deve parlare, i media italiani comincino a parlare anche di Giuliani. A meno che non vogliano nascondere agli italiani il fatto che ad ancora un’ anno e mezzo dal voto, Giuliani è gia in testa a quasi tutti.

Magdi Allam: La lezione del tunisino che vuole eliminare i governanti. In un saggio ha scritto: «Oggi ci sono governanti lacchè dell’imperialismo e per questo bisogna ucciderli». Rached Ghannouchi, già espulso, al convegno di Napoli sui «musulmani democratici». Per chi non lo sapesse, costui è un’imam fondamentalista di Londra, che ha emesso una fatwa che invita i suoi sostenitori a cercare ed uccidere i mussulmani laici e riformisti che invocano la riforma dell’Islam e la democratizzazione delle loro società. Va detto che tra questi riformisti ci sono sia intellettuali di sinistra (come Lafif) che di destra. Non importa il colore politico. Si tratta di aiutare questi illuministi a vincere la battaglia per la laicizzazione del mondo islamico. Ringrazio Magdi per aver portato all’attenzione dei lettori italiani circa la presenza di tale personaggio quale Rachid Ghannouchi.Ho appena contattato Abu Khawla,ccordinatore della Campagna Internazionale per salvare Lafif Lakhdar dalla condanna a morte emessa proprio da tale Ghannouchi. Ho chiesto ad Abu se è possibile tradurre in inglese l’editoriale in questione e pubblicarlo su Middle East Trasparent. In seguito, verrà pubblicato sul blog dedicato a Lafif Lakhdar, dove ci si potrà rendere conto di chi è l’inquisitore islamico invitato al convegno di Napoli.

While the world focuses on the nuclear issue, the Islamic Republic’s Taliban prepares to flood the Sivand Dam, part of Iran’s and Mankind’s Cultural Heritage dating back to the pre-Islamic era. The world stood idle by while Afghanistan’s Taliban destroyed the Bamyaan Buddha statues. It is standing idle by while the Islamic regime prepares to commit what it is for sure a crime against humanity. The Islamic regime is taking a major step to destroy Iran and its rich cultural heritage, while the world even allows unscrupulous people to sell and buy pieces of Iranian monuments. What is next? Will the civilized people allow the destruction of part of the mankind’s treasure? Where is the UNESCO? Below are images from a peaceful demonstrations of Iranians in Iran, protesting against the announced flooding of part of their cultural heritage.

Israel denies false claims of nuclear strike against Iran. Without any doubt, these rumors are part of the pshycological warfare being waged against the terrorist Islamic Republic. In reality, Israel understands quite well that a military strike in Iran would have very bad consequences. It would rally the Iranian population – in their majority against the Mullahs – around the regime and that would be the end of every hope for the liberation of Iran. The problem is not nuclear energy per sè, it’s the terrorist regime that puts its hands on it with the ultimate goal to use it against Israel. It’s the regime in Iran that must be overthrown, not the nuclear facilities per se. The democratic world has once and for all to adopt a concrete regime change policy before one that focuses only on the nuclear issue. No mullahs, no problem.

In an unprecedented move, the Iraqi gov’t has strongly rebuked all those foreign governments that criticized Saddam’s hanging. “We find that this conduct is inciting sedition and flagrant interference in the internal affairs of Iraq and abuses feelings of the families of the victims.”

Il governo iracheno ha ricordato a quei governi ipocriti che hanno condannato l’impiccagione dell’assassino Saddam Hussein, che l’Iraq è un paese sovrano. «Condanna di Saddam è questione irachena»«L’esecuzione del despota – ha aggiunto al Maliki – non è stata una decisione politica come affermano i nemici del popolo iracheno. Questa decisione è stata presa dopo un giusto processo che peraltro il dittatore non meritava». «Abbiamo sempre detto che Saddam Hussein non rappresentava una componente del popolo iracheno. I crimini che ha commesso contro il popolo, il paese e le istituzioni sono indifendibili». «Vorrei ugualmente dire qualcosa – ha proseguito il premier iracheno – a proposito delle organizzazioni internazionali e di difesa dei diritti dell’uomo. Mi domando dov’erano quando sono stati commessi i crimini di Anfal, di Halabja, con armi chimiche, con esecuzioni di massa, fosse comuni… Questi crimini sono costati la vita a migliaia di iracheni e di cittadini dei paesi vicini. Perché non abbiamo sentito allora la voce di queste organizzazioni?»

Amil Imani: What to Do About Iran

There are rumors according to which the Islamic Republic’s so-called “supreme leader” is dead. I tend not to report unconfirmed news here; Khamenei’s death cannot be confirmed. I think that it’s better for everyone dedicated to the cause of the Iranian freedom, not to commit the mistake to let emotions overcome the reality on the ground. Emotions can lead to commit serious mistakes. Let’s assume he is dead: my personal conclusion is that all those who rejoice – legitimately and with every reason to do that – should remind that his death does not automatically mean the end of the Islamic regime. The theocracy is not going to change by itself just because his “supreme leader” dies. All we need to do is to put emotions aside, and rather work to help the Iranian people overthrow the totality of the Islamic theocracy once and for all, without letting in power even one of the self-proclaimed ‘reformists’ . Democratic and non-violent regime change can be reached by supporting – politically, morally and economically – all the straits of the Iranian society: students, workers, teachers, women, etc, who will be the ones who will ultimately oust the regime by themselves. While I can understand and share the joy many might feel at the news of a likely death of Khamenei, I also think we should use wiseness and rationality, avoiding to be led by emotions because that is what many did in the recent past and the results have been very bad with respect to the cause we struggle for. It’s not by the death of one Mullah or by changing the Islamist constitution, that we can hope to see the end of the theocracy. I hope wiseness prevails in ourselves and that we can again seriously and concretely take the just and realist steps to turn our good words of “We hope Iran will be free soon” into concrete action that can lead to really liberate Iran.

Astounding bit of sanity from the new U.N. secretary general: New U.N. Chief Defends Death Penalty for Saddam Hussein – “Saddam Hussein was responsible for committing heinous crimes and unspeakable atrocities against the Iraqi people,” Ban said in his first news conference as secretary general.

U.N. troops in south Sudan raping children: report


December 30, 2006

A fan of Hitler and Mussolini, the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has been executed by hanging. As previously said, I am an opponent of the death penalty and vengeance, but I think there are exceptions when it comes to brutal tyrants who committ war crimes, extermin millions and sow death and destruction on this earth. It’s important to remind that Saddam’s death sentence was carried out only after a long and fair trial where he was granted the right to hire lawyers and defend himself although he couldn’t deny his crimes. The trial was fair and, in his way to execution, he was accompanied by his “spiritural guide”, a Sunni imam. These things were always denied to his victims, who were brutally executed without a due process, let alone being allowed a spiritual guide. Plus, unlike Mussolini, who was hanged in public, Saddam was hanged in a room. Although the majority of Italians said they agreed with the execution of the Iraqi butcher, the political class, above all the governing coalition, seems to forget that they never condemned the public hanging of Mussolini. Yet, today they seethe screaming “horror of horrors!”. One member of the government even went on hunger strike against the execution! And the President of the Chamber of Deputies – a leader of a communist party and a close friend of Castro and the Chinese butchers – said today that “what we saw is horror”. Saddam slaughtered 4 milion people, among which Iraqi Kurds, Shias and Iranians. No matter what our opinion on death penalty is, Saddam’s death  fills us with joy.

UPDATE: Here is the latest video of Saddam’s execution, including the moment when he takes the fall. Watch it here.

Fox News has a newly-released video showing a new angle of Saddam’s execution plus his final words

Nuovo video rilasciato dalla tv irachena, che mostra saddam sul patibolo ripreso da un’altra angolazione, e nel quale lo si sente pronunciare la tipica frase islamica “dio è grande, maometto è il suo profeta”.

Dichiarazione di un curdo iracheno: la fine di Saddam

I politici italiani, come sempre, danno sempre il peggio di sè quanto a ipocrisia e falsità. Da una parte la sinistra, con i comunisti che per natura hanno la violenza e l’odio nel sangue, sbraitano perchè il loro amico ha pagato per i crimini compiuti (nonostante non era comunista, nonostante abbia massacrato anche numerosi comunisti iracheni, nonostante fosse ammiratore di Hitler e Mussolini); per non  parlare dei vari Panella che, ormai in preda alle classiche demenze da anziano settantenne, non toccano cibo perchè hanno ucciso saddam e se la prende con Bush, come solo i dementi del partito radicale filo-zapateriano sanno fare. Dall’altra, una “destra” che fa finta di essere rammaricata pur di non perdere i voti di coloro che sono contro la pena capitale anche se si tratta dei peggiori tiranni e terroristi. Sappiamo benissimo che la cosidetta ‘destra’ italiana (che di destra non ha nulla), è giustamente compiaciuta dell’eliminazione di uno che ha seminato morte e distruzione in questo pianeta. Solo che non ha le palle per dire ciò che pensa. Ecco la schifezza della classe politica italiana, descritta sopra in poche ma eloquenti parole. Il resto sono solo chiacchiere. Non che l’Europa intera si sia comportata meglio, ma ormai i saggi tra noi sanno di che pasta è fatta quest’Europa.

One of the world’s worst tyrants and war criminals will go to meet Satan tomorrow morning. Saddam Hussein to hang in the early hours of tomorrow (saturday). Personally, I am against the death penalty, but I think exceptions exist and one of these is Saddam’s execution, which is very well-deserved. As was that of Mussolini, hanged in a well-known square in Milan.

Piazzale Loreto per Saddam Hussein domani all’alba. Questo è il destino che si merita.

I am really disgusted in seeing the way the mainstream media (MSM) is reporting the news. First, I read al-AP insulting the Iranian nation and millions of Iranians (no confusion with the regime, pls) by calling the historical Persian Gulf as “Arab Gulf” (the sheikhs must be jumping of joy after reading it) and then, almost all the MSM (AP, Reuters, CNN, BBC, AFP) calling Rafsanjani, the MURDERER OF THOUSANDS, INCLUDING DISSIDENTS IN EUROPE and MASTERMIND of the 1993 bombings in Argentina, as “moderate” ! But don’t be surprised, these are the very same media which refer to Bin Laden as “Saudi dissident” and refuse to call terrorists as terrorists, preferring to appease them by calling them “militants”, “rebels” and, I guess they will soon or later call them “frustrated poor people seeking revenge against the bad evil Zionists and Americans”. Not to mention the LIES the media are reporting about the so-called “elections” in Iran, claiming about a sort of “larger than expected turnout in Iran’s elections” and stupidities of this kind ( the Mullahs must be jumping of joy seeing how they are able to manipulate the foreign media). Again, don’t be surprised: AP and Reuters (to name a few) are the very same which have fabricated photos during the Lebanon war this summer (I hope you remember the Fauxtography Scandal). The televised media here are also reporting the sham elections as if they were democratic elections and seem to be happy that Rafsanjani “won” , so the European masters will do business with him, forgetting his crimes.The world is losing ethics.

Bin Laden killed.

This explains, if someone was still unconvinced, why the mainstream media is biased when reporting from and about Iraq: Captured document: AP employee spied for Saddam

Non c’è da stupirsi che si venga a sapere che l’agenzia di stampa Associated Press era infiltrata da spie saddamite.

Syria to create its own Hizbullah .These are the people Mr. Prodi relies on.

The terrorists held in the Abu Ghraib prison want Americans to come back. Now, the America-haters should ask themselves: if they were really being tortured by the Americans, why are they calling for them to come back now?

Italian clown Romano Prodi, current Prime Minister, proudly affirmed that Siryan tyrant and terrorist Bashar Assad agreed to EU border presence. Mr. Prodi has been dismissed by the very same dictator. Prodi is a shame for Italy.

Il pagliaccio Prodi colleziona una brutta figura. Ha sbandierato ai quattro venti il “successo” di aver ottenuto il via libera alle forze UE da parte del tiranno terrorista siriano Assad, uno dei principali responsabili dell’attuale crisi. Poi, è stato smentito di brutto dallo stesso dittatore. Insomma, un pagliaccio che colleziona figuracce in campo internazionale.

Anti-semitism in the country who invented the infamous racial laws and sent lots of Jews to Hitler’s gas chambers. The only difference is that today’s anti-semites are on the left. Israeli art banned at Venice Biennale. Hat tip: Ziva.

Antisemitismo nel paese che ha inventato le leggi razziali ed ha mandato decine di ebrei ad essere uccisi nei forni crematori. Solo che l’anti-semitismo stavolta sta a sinistra. Proibita l’arte israeliana al cinema di Venezia.


Italian center-right opposition finally doing its work. In the past few months, it seemed to me and many, that the former PM Berlusconi had opted for a soft opposition to the leftist gov’t. But now, Berlusconi and the center-right decided to do the right thing and do a strong and resolute opposition to the current minority gov’t. He also announced plans to mobilize that half of Italian voters who did not vote for Prodi, and call on them to take to the streets against the controversial laws proposed by the current gov’t.  Berlusconi: We would vote NO to the Italian presence in Lebanon under the UN flag . The only party of the center-right that is against this attitude is, as always, the docile Christian Democratic Union, whose leader, Casini, is now in Iran meeting with the murderous and terrorist Mullahs.

Finalmente l’opposizione fa il suo lavoro. Berlusconi, con l’appoggio di An e Lega, opta per un’opposizione dura ed intransigente, optando anche per la piazza. Perchè bisogna fare come fece la sinistra per cinque anni. Ostruzionismo in parlamento, e mobilitazione nelle piazze. Altrimenti non si è opposizione. Mi dà speranza un Berlusconi che dichiara di voler votare no ad una missione che si prefige di leccare i piedi all’Onu, all’UE ed ai regimi mediorientali. L’unica voce stonante è quella dei soliti democristiani che sono sempre stati filo-arabi. Un Casini che dichiara di essere contrario alle parole di Berlusconi mentre lo stesso (Casini) si trova in visita privata dai Mullah terroristi in Iran, è un Casini la cui opinione sinceramente a me non interessa più di tanto.
