Canadian, huh?



Don’t those three look smug, and pleased with themselves? This picture is front and centre on newspapers Canada-wide under the huge header: “It’s a Done Deal.” Those three men, Jack Layton on the left, Stephan Dion in the middle, and Gilles Duceppe are all leaders of the main political parties who have just signed an ‘agreement’ to form a coalition government in Canada.



These are strange times in Canadian politics. Just six weeks ago, Canadians trudged to the polls for a federal election that nobody wanted; nobody, that is except the Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, who declared an election necessary because his minority government decided that parliament was unworkable. So off we all went to do our civic duty. Well, some of us did as we saw one of the lowest voter turnouts in history. The results of the millions of dollars spent saw Harper’s Conservative Party STILL in a minority position, albeit with more seats. To form a majority government (and then, in theory have free rein to run the country according to their own philosophy) Harper needed 155 seats. He got 143.



Now those three gems pictured above have decided that THEY are more qualified to run this country. Did any of them win a mandate to do that? No, of course not. What has brought the country to this precipice is an overload of arrogance on the part of ALL party leaders….

Why We Waste Blood & Treasure in Afghanistan

[Author’s note: I thought I had cross posted this, but failed to find it in the list. A Yahoo search also failed to turn it up, but turned up mentions in unexpected places which I intend to check out. This is one of my most vitriolic posts, so I will warn Bush lovers, Libtards & Muslims: reading this post may be harmful to your emotional health.]

An important question was propounded in the Gathering Storm Newsletter. It happened in their Winston Churchill Golden Balls Award section from which I quote.

The Golden Balls Award goes each week to the most flagrant Appeaser or Apologist or those that outright lie that has done most to undermine our defense against Islamists. This weeks Golden Balls Award goes to:

Hamid Karzai

Afghan leader pledges to protect Taliban from US

Mr Karzai said he would go “to any length” to protect Mullah Mohammad Omar, who has a $10 million price on his head from the US government.

He challenged his Western backers to leave the country or remove him if they disagreed.

“If I hear from him that he is willing to come to Afghanistan or to negotiate for peace… I, as the president of Afghanistan, will go to any length providing protection,” Mr Karzai told a press conference.

“If I say I want protection for Mullah Omar, the international community has two choices – remove me or leave if they disagree,” he said.

Tell me again why our troops are fighting and dying to keep this ‘Mayor of Kabul’ in power?

We are wasting blood & treasure in Afghanistan because our elected leaders are ignorant damned fools with neither knowledge, courage nor convictions. We sent an invasion force where we needed to send thermonuclear weapons.

The stated strategic objectives are absolute impossibilities; they can never be obtained by invasion.

  • Afghanistan; free & independent, democratic with:
    • full human rights & liberties
    • education
    • prosperity
  • not
    • a haven for terrorists
    • a state sponsor of terrorism.

Our elected leaders can not identify the enemy:

  • it ain’t:
    • Afghanistan
    • Iraq
    • Iran
    • al-Qaeda.
  • it is:
    • ISLAM

All worshipers of Allah; admirers & emulators of Muhammad, jointly and severally, wheresoever dispersed over the face of the earth, in all their Mosques, Madrassahs and Islamic Cultural Centers are the enemy.

The various wars ongoing in:

  • Israel
  • Lebanon
  • Afghanistan
  • Iraq
  • Algeria
  • Morocco
  • Nigeria
  • Kenya
  • Somalia
  • Sudan
  • Indonesia
  • Philippines
  • Chechnia

are battlefronts in one war: Islam’s global conquest of Kuffar. They are not separate, unrelated incidents. Our elected leaders are unaware of this fatal fact; unable to perceive the big picture because they have not read and comprehended Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition and jurisprudence.

What our leaders don’t know will cost us much treasure and, ultimately, our lives, liberties and culture. All will be lost because they are neglecting our defense. They don’t know who the enemy is or why he is inimical. They don’t know that this enemy can not be placated. It can not be appeased. It will not tire. It will not quit until it has conquered the entire world.

Muslims are not freemen; they are Allah’s slaves, having sold their lives and their earthly prospects to Allah in return for admission to gardens flowing with rivers of wine & honey, with trees of low hanging fruit always in season and full breasted maidens who remain virgins no matter how often the Muslims sport with them. For that, the Muslims sold themselves, so that they fight, kill and are killed in Allah’s cause. Our elected leaders are unaware of this fatal fact because they have not read Islam’s canon of scripture. Go to 55:46 and 78:31 and read about the Paradise.

Al-Taubah 111 discusses the bargain between Allah and his slaves. Go now and read it. This is reinforced in As-Saff 10-13, which explicitly sets Jihad as the price of admission to Paradise. Go read it. The gardens are mentioned often as a reward for those killed in Jihad. Why don’t you believe me?

You think I’m a liar, taking things out of context, twisting, perverting, distorting or mis-interpreting? Then go to www.quranbrowser.com and search for gardens. Search for rivers while you’re at it.

Why the war? Because Moe was a pirate, deriving his revenue from ghazwat. I must be a liar and a damned fool; Moe was a Prophet. Yeah, right. Which one of us has read the Qur’an & Hadith? Somebody does not know his subject, and it ain’t me. I have something you do not have: proof.

Bukhari Ch 61 # 2756: …It is mentioned from Ibn ‘Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, “My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.

That ahadith has been Bowdlerized from other on line texts but it is still in some hard copies. Moe got his living by his spear. For the abasement & humility part, see 3:112. But you need confirmation, don’t you. I have it.

Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.

Allah gave Moe special dispensation to accrue spoils. One hadith lists five special qualities that set Moe apart from other Prophets. One of them is relevant to this matter.

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:
3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.

In another hadith collected by Bukhari, Moe brags about victory through terrorism and claims all the world’s wealth for himself.

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

How did Moe become wealthy?

Bukhari Volume 3, Book 37, Number 495:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Whenever a dead man in debt was brought to Allah’s Apostle he would ask, “Has he left anything to repay his debt?” If he was informed that he had left something to repay his debts, he would offer his funeral prayer, otherwise he would tell the Muslims to offer their friend’s funeral prayer. When Allah made the Prophet wealthy through conquests, he said, “I am more rightful than other believers to be the guardian of the believers, so if a Muslim dies while in debt, I am responsible for the repayment of his debt, and whoever leaves wealth (after his death) it will belong to his heirs. “

How are the spoils to be allocated?

8:1. They ask you (O Muhammad) about the spoils of war. Say: “The spoils are for Allah and the Messenger.” So fear Allah and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), if you are believers.

8:41. And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allah, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad)], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allah and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) – And Allah is Able to do all things.

In one ayeh, Allah specifies genocide as a prerequisite for ransoming captives and tells us explicitly what motivated Moe. Read it and curse Islam.

8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

Of course, as always, you require confirmation. I have it for you.

33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.
33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allah is Able to do all things.

What did Allah do to that Jewish settlement? What did Moe receive as a result?

Now you know the why, and you have a hint of what. I will now provide more explicit detail: Allah’s open ended, outcome oriented, unlimited Jihad imperatives. Read them and curse Islam.

8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Al-Anfal 39 specifically refers to the pagans at Mekkah. But, unfortunately, it contains more general language. One of the compound terminal conditions is that only Allah be worshiped. Note the expression in brackets The translators got that from a tafsir. I have quoted the Hilali & Khan translation. Click the link I provided and read Abdullah Yusufali’s translation.

And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily God doth see all that they do

Al-Taubah 29 declares war upon anyone having a scriptural religion who does not convert to Islam. They are to be fought until they are subjugated and pay extortion. Click the link I provided and read Rodwell’s translation.

Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in God, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle have forbidden, and who profess not the profession of the truth, until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled.

But of course those are anachronisms, not applicable to modern times and conditions. Yeah, right. Moe had something to say about that, why won’t you listen? I made the crucial clause bold red so you can spot it.

Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526

Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.

Jihad continues from 610 to Judgement Day! What is Jihad? Hilali & Khan define it in a footnote to 2:190.

V. 2:190) Al-Jihad (holy fighting) ln AlIah’s Cause (with full force of numbers
and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on
which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior, (His
Word belng La Haha illallah which means none has the right to be worshiped but
Allah), and His Religion (Islam) is propagated. By abandoning Jihad (may Allah
protect us from that) Islam is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior
position; their honour is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish.
Jihad is an obligatory duty In Islam on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape
from this duty, or does not in his innermost heart wish to fulfil this duty, dies with
one of the qualities of a hypocrite.
Narrated Abdullah bin Masud I asked Allah’s Messenger, ’O Allah’s Messenger!
what is th e best deed?’ He replied, “To offer the Salat (prayers) at their early fixed
stated times.’ I asked, ‘What is next ln goodness?” He replied, ‘To be good and
dutlful to your parents.” I further asked, ‘What is next in goodness?’ He replied,
‘To participate in Jihad in Allaha’s Cause.’ I did not ask AIIAh’s Messenger anymore
and if l had asked him more. he would have told me more. (Sahi Al-Bukhari VoI.4. Hadith N¤.41).

Holy fighting in Allah’s cause. With full force. Shariah: Islamic law, also defines Jihad. Refer to Book O, Chapter 9 of Reliance of the Traveller. I have added links in the text to facilitate your research. .

Chapter O9.0: Jihad

(O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad.

“We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad.”

The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus (def: b7) is such Koranic verses as:

-1- “Fighting is prescribed for you” (Koran 2:216);

-2- “Slay them wherever you find them” (Koran 4:89);

-3- “Fight the idolators utterly” (Koran 9:36);

and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

“I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah”;

and the hadith reported by Muslim,

“To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.”Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts of the military expeditions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), including his own martial forays and those on which he dispatched others. The former consist of the ones he personally attended, some twenty-seven (others say twenty-nine) of them. He fought in eight of them, and killed only one person with his noble hand, Ubayy ibn Khalaf, at the battle of Uhud. On the latter expeditions he sent others to fight, himself remaining at Medina, and these were forty-seven in number.)

How frequently must Jihad be performed? Paragraph one provides this detail for us, as regards fighting Kuffar in their home countries.

As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.

The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, “Jihad is a communal obligation,” meaning upon the Muslims each year.

In case that is not entirely clear, another quote from al-Shafi’i should clear it up for you, if not, you are too stupid to breathe, let alone read.

Al-Shafi’i (God have mercy on him) said: “The least that the imam must do is that he allow no year to pass without having organised a military expedition by himself, or by his raiding parties, according to the Muslims’ interest, so that the jihad will only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse.” He said: “If he did not undertake the sending of enough troops to fight, those who are absent (must) go out, and consider as an obligation that which God (who is praised) said.”

So, the Muslims are legally obligated by Allah’s command & Moe’s example, to make war on somebody every year. Who, exactly are they to do it to? For this, we turn to Book O9.8 & 9.9. Read it and curse Islam!

O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,

“Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29),

the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus’ descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

“I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,”

this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

O9.9

The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshipers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshipers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya Shariah Bidaya al-mubtadi’ (y21), 6.48-49) ).

Why does the Caliph make war upon Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians? Because of Allah’s divine command in Al-Taubah 29. Got a clue yet? Shariah is explicit; read O9.8 again! Why does the Caliph fight all other peoples? Could it be Al-Anfal 39?. Could it be Moe’s declarationthat he was ordered to fight the people?

Whoopee!! We’re home free! Attaturk dissolved the Caliphate so they can’t make war any more. Yeah, right.

O9.6

It is offensive to conduct a military expedition against hostile non-Muslims without the caliph’s permission (A: though if there is no caliph (def: o25), no permission is required).

The fools have one last refuge: mis-translation, mis-interpretation, out of context and ignoring peaceful verses. I have one resource which trumps those moronic assertions. Ibn Kathir spent his adult life studying the Qur’an & hadith. His tafsir is the most widely accepted exegeses of the Qur’an. In 3:7, Allah tells us that his book contains commands in clear verses.

3:7. It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad ) the Book (this Qur’an). In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkam (commandments, etc.), Al-Fara’id (obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud (legal laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers, etc.)]; and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings save Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord.” And none receive admonition except men of understanding. (Tafsir At-Tabarî).

Ibn Kathir tells us that those commands are to be believed and implemented.

The Muhkamat are the Ayat that explain the abrogating rulings, the allowed, prohibited, laws, limits, obligations and rulings that should be believed in and implemented. As for the Mutashabihat Ayat, they include the abrogated Ayat, parables, oaths, and what should be believed in, but not implemented.

The titles which Ibn Kathir gave to some of his tafsir topics should give us pause. These tafsirs present the Arabic text, English translation, related ayat and hadith. Read them and comprehend the fact that Allah’s damn book means exactly what it says in plain language.

Remember the reference in Reliance to Moe’s activities? His recitation & works are freely available for you to read at USC-MSA’s Compendium of Islamic Texts. There are links to the Qur’an & Sunnah in the left side bar.
Bukhari:

Muslim:

Abu Dawud:

Malik’s Muwatta:

Violent, hateful & antisemitic verses are scattered throughout the Qur’an, which is about one third of the Bible’s length. Both the Qur’an and hadith contain considerable redundancy. These Surahs

are required to develop a full comprehension of the Jihad imperative.

President Bush talks about the war of ideas, but he never identifies the ideas.

  • supremacism
  • triumphalism
  • tribalism
  • literalism
  • absolutism

and, most important, the mandate to conquer the entire world; those are the ideas we must fight. We must show the Ummah al-Islamiyya exactly who Moe was and what he did. They believe him to be the best and greatest of men, worthy of emulation. Most of them have not read the hadith. Reading and comprehending the Qur’an & hadith causes many Muslims to apostasize.

Read the Qur’an and understand that Muslims are required to obey Allah’s commands and emulate Moe’s example. Read the Hadith and understand that Moe committed genocide & terrorism. They can’t get to Paradise and claim their Houris & wine until they convert or kill us. Do you comprehend what that means? Islam is eternal war. We must rid the earth of it.

The unlearned lessons of Vietnam:

  • territory
    • seize
    • hold
    • secure
  • sanctuaries must be denied.

The unlearned lesson of Afghanistan & Iraq:

  • break Allah’s yoke of slavery
    • induce mass apostasy
  • kill the recidivists.

The unlearned lesson of Israel:

  • allow no Muslims within rocket range.

Over simplified & brutal. Yes, it is, and vital. Anything less is a complete waste of blood and treasure; treason against the human race. See my recent blog post: Victory: the Path to Peace.

For 2 year old little boys the cry Ima (Mommy) comes when they are hurt or scared. And their mother comes running to see what is wrong. But for 2 year old Moshe Holtzberg, Mommy will not be coming to heal his hurts. His mother, Rivka Holtzberg was murdered at the Chabad Center in Mumbai, India last week.


Just before the body of Rivka Holtzberg, 28, her husband, Rabbi Gavriel, 29, and four other Jews killed by Muslim terrorists in Mumbai last week were flown back to Israel on Monday, her father promised that his family would continue her emissary work for Chabad in the same city where she died.

“My wife and I will continue their [Rivka and Gavriel’s] mission, to carry out the work of the Rebbe here, at least until [their son], Moishe, grows up and then he will continue it,” Afula’s Rabbi Shimon Rosenberg told reporters, breaking into tears as he spoke.

His son, Yossi, told The Jerusalem Post from his Haifa home that it was still unclear whether it would be his parents or other members of the Holtzberg family who would return to Mumbai in the name of the couple who had lived there and operated the Chabad house since 2003.

“There is no comfort for what happened. But we can remember Gabi and Rivki if we are connected to the place where they lived. My parents are taking full responsibility for the continuation of my sister’s work,” he said. Shimon and his wife, Yehudit, had flown to India immediately after hearing of the attack.

One cannot stop good people from doing good deeds or works. Tragedies like these only reinforces the resolve of those trying to bring joy and peace to others.

They were due to arrive back in Israel late Monday night on an IDF plane that carried the six bodies, including those of Aryeh Leibish Teitelbaum, 37; Bentzion Chroman, 28; Yocheved Orpaz, 62, and Norma Shvarzblat Rabinovich, 50.

Upon their return late Monday night, the state was scheduled to hold a small private ceremony for the victims, after which a number of the families planned to hold burial ceremonies on Tuesday. The Holtzbergs’ funeral will begin in Kfar Chabad on Tuesday. Mourners will proceed from there to Jerusalem to bury the couple on the Mount of Olives.

Among those on the flight back to Israel Monday night was Holtzberg’s two-year-old son Moshe, who was saved from the building by his Indian nanny Sandra Samuel, to whom he has clung since the rescue.

An Interior Ministry spokeswoman said Monday that no formal request had been made as yet for Samuel to receive either permanent or temporary residency in Israel.

However, she added that Interior Minister Meir Sheetrit was willing to find a solution that would allow the woman, an Indian native, to stay here, at least for the short-term.

In Mumbai, Samuel worked on obtaining an entry visa up until the last minute and so missed the ceremony held earlier in the day at a Mumbai synagogue for the six victims.

If ever there was an angel during this massacre, it was the nanny, Sandra Samuel. She gathered up little Moshe and dared the terrorists to kill her and the child too. There are no words of praise that one could use in regards to this fine lady. No reward on Earth is too good for her, and her greatest reward will come from God. For she has saved a life.


During the ceremony, Shimon Rosenberg quoted from the book of Job, and said, “The Lord giveth. The Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

Wearing a green T-shirt and clutching a red ball, Moshe had a hard time sitting still in the synagogue as he sat on the lap of Samuel’s friend and looked about for his missing parents.

“Mommy, Mommy,” he cried out, with his head flung back, in a voice that echoed through the sanctuary and was filmed by Israeli television and showed a number of times in Israel throughout the evening.

What sorrow for these families. The 6 Americans and the 6 Israelis murdered. Killed in the name of Islam. How proud the murderers families must be! What great deeds they accomplished!

The true great deed came from Sandra Samuel who did the most courageous thing that day. She saved a little boy’s life. It is written in the Talmud:

He who saves a life, saves the world entire.

My parents are taking full responsibility for the continuation of my sister’s work,” he said. Shimon and his wife, Yehudit, had flown to India immediately after hearing of the attack.

One cannot stop good people from doing good deeds or works. Tragedies like these only reinforces the resolve of those trying to bring joy and peace to others.

They were due to arrive back in Israel late Monday night on an IDF plane that carried the six bodies, including those of Aryeh Leibish Teitelbaum, 37; Bentzion Chroman, 28; Yocheved Orpaz, 62, and Norma Shvarzblat Rabinovich, 50.

Upon their return late Monday night, the state was scheduled to hold a small private ceremony for the victims, after which a number of the families planned to hold burial ceremonies on Tuesday. The Holtzbergs’ funeral will begin in Kfar Chabad on Tuesday. Mourners will proceed from there to Jerusalem to bury the couple on the Mount of Olives.

Among those on the flight back to Israel Monday night was Holtzberg’s two-year-old son Moshe, who was saved from the building by his Indian nanny Sandra Samuel, to whom he has clung since the rescue.

An Interior Ministry spokeswoman said Monday that no formal request had been made as yet for Samuel to receive either permanent or temporary residency in Israel.

However, she added that Interior Minister Meir Sheetrit was willing to find a solution that would allow the woman, an Indian native, to stay here, at least for the short-term.

In Mumbai, Samuel worked on obtaining an entry visa up until the last minute and so missed the ceremony held earlier in the day at a Mumbai synagogue for the six victims.

If ever there was an angel during this massacre, it was the nanny, Sandra Samuel. She gathered up little Moshe and dared the terrorists to kill her and the child too. There are no words of praise that one could use in regards to this fine lady. No reward on Earth is too good for her, and her greatest reward will come from God. For she has saved a life.


During the ceremony, Shimon Rosenberg quoted from the book of Job, and said, “The Lord giveth. The Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

Wearing a green T-shirt and clutching a red ball, Moshe had a hard time sitting still in the synagogue as he sat on the lap of Samuel’s friend and looked about for his missing parents.

“Mommy, Mommy,” he cried out, with his head flung back, in a voice that echoed through the sanctuary and was filmed by Israeli television and showed a number of times in Israel throughout the evening.

What sorrow for these families. The 6 Americans and the 6 Israelis murdered. Killed in the name of Islam. How proud the murderers families must be! What great deeds they accomplished!

The true great deed came from Sandra Samuel who did the most courageous thing that day. She saved a little boy’s life. It is written in the Talmud:

He who saves a life, saves the world entire.

Supreme Court Sends Citizenship Appeal to an Anthrax Lab

Who is this man?

U.S. Supreme Court Building in Washington D.C.

U.S. Supreme Court Justices

As expected, President-elect Barack Obama and the Democrat National Committee (DNC) let yesterday’s Supreme Court deadline to respond to Philip Berg’s Writ of Certiorari slip by unanswered, but it appears even at the Supreme Court, a deadline is not really a deadline as the Court allows two additional days for “mail service.”

Associate Justice David Souter denied an emergency appeal for the Court to halt the Electoral College’s tabulation of votes to officially declare Barack Obama the President, until proof of his eligibility is affirmed. While Souter denied the appeal, he did set the above mentioned requirement for a response from Obama and the DNC.

Attorney Philip Berg, this morning, filed an emergency injunction with the Court to bar Obama from taking the oath of office of the Presidency. Jeff at America’s Right interprets Berg’s motion as follows:

From what I could gather, the emergency motion for immediate injunction contains two main parts — in filing the motion, Berg is looking for the Court

(1) to prohibit the certification of electors by the governors of each individual state in order to stay the Electoral College from casting votes for Obama on December 15, and

(2) to stay the official counting of any votes for Obama by Vice President Dick Cheney, the House of Representatives and United States Senate on January 6, 2009, pending any decision on his appeal.

Berg is quoted as saying that he is one-thousand percent certain that Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen. Obama and the DNC are not “obligated” to file an answer, and Berg says that he “believes that the lack of response could be rooted less in procedure and more in audacity…” “The feeling may be that, if they respond, they could hold themselves out for perjury later on when we’re successful.”

As November 4th neared, a few of us were desperately attempting to get this information to the public. Surely, we thought (bloggers) this was an important and valid issue. After all, the Supreme Court ordered Obama to provide proof of his U.S. birth. How many times has that happened? But the MSM wouldn’t touch it. I thought the media, including cable television, viewed this as too ludicrous to even consider, but as time passed, credible reasons to believe that Obama could not provide proof of his U.S. birth, began piling up. Someone, for some reason, was able to keep this out of the MSM.

Here are other actions at work at the Supreme Court:

Donofrio v. Wells will be heard by the full Court with Justice Clarence Thomas chairing the Conference on December 5th. The purpose of the Conference is to consider granting Certiorari, which allows further review of the original lawsuit.

If 4 of the 9 Justices respond in the affirmative to Leo’s [Donofrio] case, there will be an oral argument and further briefing. If 5 of the 9 Justices respond in the affirmative, they could grant a stay of the Electoral College vote.

Wrotnowski v. Bysiewicz “has been officially tendered to the Supreme Court…” All things get weirder when it concerns Barack Obama. Wrotnowski, allegedly, was told by the Court that his emergency stay renewal was referred to an ANTHRAX CONTAINMENT FACILITY! A reader left this information on a Maggie’s Notebook post, and it appears that is exactly what Wrotnowski is saying he was told in a telephone conversation (read more below).

Hunter v. Obama sent to the Supreme Court

For detailed information and commentary read the terrific work by The Right Side of Life which also reports this intriguing information:

There is also a rumor that the full Court may be seriously considering staying the Electoral College vote until after Barack Obama’s eligibility can be confirmed (the following excerpt from Bob Vernon of Honest American News (Plains Radio Network):

Today I spoke with Patricia McCabe Estrada, Deputy Director of Public Information at the United States Supreme Court. She informed me that Mr. Donofrio’s application was first referred to the full Court by Justice Clarence Thomas on November 19, 2008. After that referral took place the full Court, and not Justice Thomas alone, distributed the application for an emergency stay for Conference of December 5, 2008. [emphasis mine]

We now know that the renewed request to halt the election was not denied and is actively being considered at the Supreme Court.

The We the People Foundation placed a full page in the Chicago Tribune, running on December 1st and 3rd:

The Open Letter to Mr. Obama is a formal Petition for a Redress (Remedy) for the alleged violation of the “natural born citizen” clause of the Constitution of the United States of America.

Mr. Obama is respectfully requested to direct the Hawaiian officials to provide access to his original birth certificate on December 5-7 by our team of forensic scientists, and to provide additional documentary evidence establishing his citizenship status prior to our Washington, D.C. press conference on December 8.

A First Amendment Petition to any official of the Government for Redress of a violation of the Constitution is substantially different from the garden-variety political petitions frequently received by government officials. This Petition demands it be given the highest priority for an expedited review and official Response by Mr. Obama.

As a formal “Notice of a Constitutional Violation,” the Petition naturally includes the People’s inherent Right to an official Response. As a time-sensitive, election related Petition involving the Office of the President, failure to Respond as requested would constitute an egregious breach of the public trust and confirm the certainty of a Constitutional crisis.

Dr. Orly Taitz reports numerous phone calls to the SC demanding to know why Cort Wrotnowski’s Petition for Stay of Elections was delayed by 7 days because it was sent to an anthrax lab:

Mr. Wrotnowski is a law abiding citizen, a business owner, was never in trouble with the law. Why was his petition delayed by a week via sending it to the Anthrax lab. No response was received, no name of the clerk was given. These clerks are sabotaging anti Obama cases to put a foreigner in the White House, this is bordering on aiding and abetting treason.

Dr. Taitz is asking for our help:

Please write to all 9 judges, let them know what is going on, demand to join all 5 cases currently in the Supreme Court, you can send them a copy of our Keyes v Bowen petition for Writ of Mandate as a supporting document. Currently I am working on filing a second case, representing another group of candidates, party officials, Certified Electors and Registered voters and I am assisting other attorneys all around the country, that are preparing similar actions and trying to match voters and electors in different states with attorneys that can represent them.

Here’s contact information (if you have previous written, please continue to do so):

The Honorable Associate Justice
Clarence Thomas
United States Supreme Court
One First St. N. E.
Washington DC 20543

Put docket # on Envelope 08-A407
