A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon. Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded. Today, we remember Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu, Martin Richard, and Sean Collier. And we send our thoughts and prayers to those still struggling to recover.
We also know that the most vivid images from that day were not of smoke and chaos, but of compassion, kindness and strength: A man in a cowboy hat helping a wounded stranger out of harm’s way; runners embracing loved ones, and each other; an EMT carrying a spectator to safety. Today, we recognize the incredible courage and leadership of so many Bostonians in the wake of unspeakable tragedy. And we offer our deepest gratitude to the courageous firefighters, police officers, medical professionals, runners and spectators who, in an instant, displayed the spirit Boston was built on – perseverance, freedom and love.
One year later, we also stand in awe of the men and women who continue to inspire us – learning to stand, walk, dance and run again. With each new step our country is moved by the resilience of a community and a city. And when the sun rises over Boylston Street next Monday – Patriot’s Day – hundreds of thousands will come together to show the world the meaning of Boston Strong as a city chooses to run again.
In Submission To Her Islamic Slave Masters Katy Perry Quietly Removes Allah Symbol From Dark Horse Video
(Jerusalem Post) –YouTube has quietly edited a Katy Perry music video, after a petition launched on Change.org, urging the online video streaming company to remove the video.
The petition, claiming that Perry literally burns a symbol representing the Muslim God, Allah, reached 50,000 signatures as of Wednesday. YouTube and Perry’s representatives did not respond to the controversy.
Shazad Iqbal, 22, creator of the petition, posted on Wednesday that the effort had ended in victory, however YouTube remained quiet throughout, even though the petition was directed at them.
“I’m thrilled to let you all know the name of Allah has been removed from the ‘Dark Horse’ video we couldn’t have done it without everyone’s support so I thank each and every one of you deeply, our voices have been heard! God bless you all,” Iqbal wrote.
A close look at the “Dark Horse” video on Perry’s VEVO YouTube channel will not prove much of anything. Although the post date of the music video has not changed (February 20), a detailed observation will show any viewer that something has changed. The symbol has quietly been removed.
The “I Kissed a Girl” singer’s latest single, “Dark Horse,” sparked harsh reactions from the international Muslim community for disrespecting a symbol representing their God, Allah.
The petition launched Tuesday on Change.org is urged supporters of Islam as well as other religions, to ask YouTube to remove the “blasphemous” music video.
Perry portrays an animated representation of Egyptian Queen Cleopatra, and she is seen using her powers to destroy those who oppose her. One character in the video is seen wearing a religious symbol around his neck, who she then zaps into a pile of sand, along with his pendant.
“At 01:15 into the video Dark Horse; a man is shown being burned, whilst wearing a pendant (also burned) forming the word ‘Allah’, which is the Arabic word for God,” says the online petition. [...]

I can see where Obama is coming from…Iranian President Hassan Rouhani…is such a ‘charming‘ peace loving fellow.…
And the Iranians love U.S.!
They really, really love U.S.!
Rouhani sends hugs and kisses to U.S. on twitter!
Our relationship w/ the world is based on Iranian nation’s interests. In #Geneva agreement world powers surrendered to Iranian nation’s will
Hassan Rouhani (@HassanRouhani) January 14, 2014
My preference is for peace and diplomacy, and this is one of the reasons why I’ve sent a message to Congress that now is not the time for us to impose new sanctions; now is the time for us to allow the diplomats and technical experts to do their work. We will be able to monitor and verify whether or not the interim agreement is being followed through on, and if it is not, we’ll be in a strong position to respond. But what we want to do is give diplomacy a chance and give peace a chance.
H/T Caleb Howe at the Right Scoop who adds:
President Obama and Secretary Kerry have been nothing if not mealy-mouthed appeasers on the matter of the Iranian nuclear program, and this is just more of the same.
Would that we had a President who could speak the vocabulary of strength and power, rather than the euphemism-heavy, platitude-driven can’t we all just get along double-speak of a spineless community organizer.
In Islamic law all Non-Muslims are inherently guilty of committing the crime of not believeing in Allah, which is punishable by death. According to Islam all Non-Muslim women are the property and right hand possesions of Muslim men to be used as Melk al-Yamin (sex slaves) by Muslim men.
I am an Ex-Muslim. According to Islam all Non-Muslim lands are Dar ul-Harb (land of war) countries that are to be attacked until they are conquered by Islam. According to Islam the whole world belongs to Islam, the Kufar (infidels) have no right to exist on AllahÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Earth. Muslims will come on here and bring up Crusades to make Christians feel guilty or pretend to be Non-Muslims defending Islam, this is called Taquiyya or Kitman which is lying to the infidel to further the cause of Islam. Muslims killed by infidels while waging Jihad on infidels are considered Shahids (martyrs) and will have the highest place in Jannat (heaven) according to Islam. In fact being a Shahid is the only guaranteed way to get into heaven, for everyone else it is a gamble. Non-Muslims defending Islam have a death wish, as Non-Muslims are considered Najis (unclean) on same level as human excrement, pigs, and dogs according to Islam. Islam is like the mafia, as leaving Islam is punishable by death. [Apostasy -VH]
Muslims talk about Christianity and Crusades. The Crusades were a response to 400 years of unprovoked Jihad against Christian lands. Islam conquered Christian France and Spain for 700 years without any provocation from Christians.
At this rate all democratic nations like the United States will be slowly but surely conquered by Islam, only China knows how to handle this Muslim cancer that is spreading across the globe.
Islam is thegreatest killer of all time, worse than Christianity, fascism or communism. Islamic jihad destroyed a Christian Middle East and a Christian North Africa. Soon it was the fate of the Persian Zoroastrian and the Hindu to be the victims of jihad. The history of political Islam is the destruction of Christianity in the Middle East, Egypt, Turkey and North Africa. Half of Christianity was lost. Before Islam, North Africa was the southern part of Europe (part of the Roman Empire). Around 60 million Christians were slaughtered during the jihadic conquest. Half of the glorious Hindu civilization was annihilated and 80 million Hindus killed. The first Western Buddhists were the Greeks descended from Alexander the GreatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s army in what is now Afghanistan. Jihad destroyed all of Buddhism along the silk route. About 10 million Buddhists died. The conquest of Buddhism is the practical result of pacifism. Zoroastrianism was eliminated from Persia. The Jews became permanent dhimmis throughout Islam. In Africa over 120 million Christians and animists have died over the last 1400 years of jihad. Approximately 270 million nonbelievers died over the last 1400 years for the glory of political Islam. These are the Tears of Jihad which are not taught in any school.
On mainstream news websites, gullible infidels are tricked everyday by Tquiyya practicing Muslims. I was raised in the death cult of Islam, they canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t trick me. Most of the posters defending Islam with Non-Muslim screen names are Muslim imposters. Muslim imposters always claim the violence in the Koran, Sira, and Hadith are taken out of context. This is a blatant lie. Its the very few peaceful Meccan verses in the Koran which were abbrogated and replaced by the numerous violent Medinan verses that are taken out of context. Not that it matters as 60% of the Koran is hatred towards all Non-Muslims, especially Jews and Christians. Muslim imposters also claim that there exists racism against Islam. How can Islam be a race? Can you convert to another race?

Ramadan a ding-dong
– Daily broadcast of Muslim call to prayer ‘stunt’ could inflame tension
Tory MP Conor Burns said: â€œI find it extraordinary Channel 4 would pursue this politically-correct tokenism.
â€œWhat would happen if they were to do this type of thing during a Christian festival such as Lent?â€
Is C4 right or wrong?

UK: @Channel4 To Air Islamic Caterwauling Every Day During Ramadan –A “Deliberate Provocation” Of IslamoRealists
Channel 4 is to air the Muslim call to prayer live every morning during the month of Ramadan.
The broadcaster said it was an act of “deliberate provocation” aimed at viewers who might associate Islam with extremism.
Soooooo…it is an ‘in your face’…to IslamoRealists who dare speak the truth about the ‘extremist’ ideology known as islam.Â Reading you loud and clear –islamophile cowards, LOUD and CLEAR.
Ralph Lee, Channel 4′s head of factual programming, said: “The calls to prayer prompt Muslims to carry out quiet moments of worship, but hopefully they’ll also make other viewers sit up and notice that this event is taking place.
Hopefully others will sit up and take notice of the furthering of the islamization of their country willfully aided and abetted by Channel 4.
“Observing the adhan on Channel 4 will act as a nationwide tannoy system, a deliberate ‘provocation’ to all our viewers in the very real sense of the word.”
More like a ‘deliberate provocative act of dhimmitude in the very real sense of the word’.
BOW Channel 4 BOW. Chains will follow…
“Following the horrific events in Woolwich and subsequent reprisals against British Muslims, there has surely never been a more pressing need to give a voice to the moderate mainstream majority.
WHEN was a muslim BUTCHERED in broad daylight on a busy street in a premeditated act of extreme violent terrorism, as was British soldier Lee Rigby?????Â WHEN?!
The Daily Mail:
The call to prayer is usually delivered from a mosque and is sometimes relayed by loudspeaker.
There are five calls to prayer a day but Channel 4 said it would only broadcast the first morning call to prayer each day. All the daily prayers will be played on the channelâ€™s website.
It will be delivered by musician Hassen Rasool and accompanied by a three-minute video showing him outside various London landmarks, including St Paulâ€™s Cathedral.
A not so subliminal message of conquest.
Islamophile Dem Rep Jim McDermott To FBI “Global Faces Of Terrorism” Ad Campaign Is Offffffensive!! [Update: FBI Pulls Ads]
In other words, the truth is offensive. The fact that the FBI’s list of most wanted terrorists is a veritable mother lode of muslims is–offensive. As the majority of those listed are –muslim.
(Seattle Weekly) –U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Seattle, says so.
In a letter to the FBI requesting they pull the campaign from Seattle buses, McDermott sounds off on what he says is â€œoffensive to Muslims and ethnic minoritiesâ€ and â€œencourages racial and religious profiling.â€
The ad shows sixteen faces of wanted terrorists, all of whom appear to be from predominantly Muslim regions.
And whose fault would that be? The FBI’s? No. Their victims? No. Counter-jihadists? No. Islam’s? Yes.
McDermott calls foul, writing that the FBIâ€™s Most Wanted Terrorists list includes people of other races and â€œassociations with other religions and causes.â€
â€œBut their faces are missing from this campaign,â€ he writes.
â€œThe…ad will likely only serve to exacerbate the disturbing trend against Middle Eastern, South Asian and Muslim Americans.â€
The ad is the work of the Puget Sound Joint Terrorism Task Force, and are part of the U.S. Department of Stateâ€™s Rewards for Justice Program. [...]
I am offended that McDermott finds displaying faces of islamic terrorists who have hatched islamic jihad slaughter plots against innocents to be offensive. Those muslims caught in the crossfire (figuratively speaking that is) need to take stock of their so called religion -not I, nor anyone else who sees through the veil. Because truth be told, Islam as a whole is highly offensive. In fact it is a crime against humanity.
Cue the outspoken Pat Condell’s “I am offended by Islam”:
“We in the west have many more reasons to be offended by the ‘religion of peace, than it has to be offended by us.”
Unless of course,Â you are a willing slave to islam.

Update: H/T Bare Naked Islam
(King5.com) –SEATTLE — The FBI says itâ€™s pulling some advertisements off buses in the Seattle area, after some people complained that they stereotyped Muslims.
The ads, which began running this month in connection with a State Department program, features pictures of 16 men wanted around the globe for terrorist activities below the words: â€œFaces of Global Terrorism.â€
Seattle FBI Special Agent Fred Gutt says the agency agrees that the ads could be taken that way. The FBI is working swap out those ads with others promoting the State Departmentâ€™s â€œRewards for Justiceâ€ program.
The complete list of wanted terrorists per the State departments’ Rewards for Justice.net.
Of which the common denominator is –wait…for …it –MUSLIMS. OMG! Will the State Department’s wanted list “likely only serve to exacerbate the disturbing trend against Middle Eastern, South Asian and Muslim Americans.â€??? Heh.
Islam does a fine job of stereotyping itself with no help from anyone else. The proof is in the islamic jihad pudding.

Here is a man who is justly concerned for his country and determined to defend it — and for that he is vilified, defamed, and persecuted by his countrymen.

Islamophile Apologist UK PM Cameron On Woolwich Jihad: â€œNothing In Islam Justifies Thisâ€ â€œA Betrayal of Islamâ€
Cowering dhimmi Cameron feeding muslim crocodiles…
(Ynet) British Prime Minister David Cameron said the brutal killing of a soldier who was hacked to death in London by two men shouting Jihadist slogans was a betrayal of Islam.
“We will never give in to terror or terrorism in any of its forms,” Cameron told reporters outside his Downing Street residence on Thursday.
Oh yes you do. Psst…bowing in submission is –GIVING IN (GIVING UP-SURRENDERING):
“This was not just an attack on Britain and on the British way of life, it was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country. There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act.”
One of the men who carried out the attack was British-born and of Nigerian descent, a source with knowledge of the investigation said. The other man may also be British with a Nigerian background, the source told Reuters. British media has identified one of the men as Michael Adebolajo, citing police sources.
Sir Winston would disagree: “No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.” “Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.”
Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50 (London: Longmans, Green | 1899
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.
The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities - but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
(Present) UK PM David Cameron’s testicular fortitude = raisins
(Former) UK PM Sir Winston Churchill’s testicular fortitude = stones
Update: Bridget Johnson reports at The PJ Tattler:
Al-Qaeada-linked Somali terror group Al-Shabaab disagreed with that in a series of tweets from its official media arm this morning.
It is not a â€œbetrayalâ€ of Islam as heâ€™d put it but rather a â€œportrayalâ€ of Islam. Donâ€™t expect Muslims to simply turn the other cheek!
