In your face crybabies.
Another home run from the audacious Pat Condell.
(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. [...]
Free expression: 0
The pseudo religion of the violently perpetually offended: 1
Over a scant, brief, (even if you don’t blink you may miss it) glimpse of a pendant inscribed with ‘allah’ in Arabic.
Sigh…another day, another whiny bitch muslim demanding that infidels bow to the bombastic, bloodlusty cult of islam.
At 1:15 into the video, a man is shown wearing two pendants, one of which says God in Arabic. Perry, who plays a queen-like figure in the video, zaps the man with lightening and he disintegrates into sand; his pendant disappearing with him.
Petitioners argue that the pop diva is meant to symbolize the opposition of God, making the video blasphemous.
The video, which has a cartoonish Ancient Egypt theme, features other nonsensical aspects such as cat-human hybrid as body guards with whom Perry pole dances with, a dog which walks on its hind legs, and Perry eating spicy junk food.
The petition, which has garnered 30,000 signatures so far, says that its support will show that, “that people from different walks of life, different religions and from different parts of the world, agree that the video promotes blasphemy, using the name of God in an irrelevant and distasteful manner would be considered inappropriate by any religion.”
Unik Salihu from Sweden said, “I as a Muslim, think this is a disgrace. Does she want to start a war against Muslims? This video is insulting to us and needs to be removed before something happens! (sic).” [...]
That sounds like a THREAT to me.
H/T SooperMexican at IJR who adds:
Whatever happens, we’re sure the Obama administration will be more than happy to blame another YouTube video and apologize to the Muslim world for our continued wanton disrespect and aggression towards their religion.
Will Obama denounce Katy for slandering Islam?
Will Obama send in his Sharia brownshirts to arrest Katy for her blasphemous video?
Will Obama protect fan gurl Katy Perry if things heat up?
If muslims go on the warpath and Americans lives are lost, will Obama blame Katy and her video?
FYI Shazad Iqbal, You Tube refused to pull the Innocence of Muslims video at the request of the Obama Regime so I doubt they will listen to a little piss ant like you.
The true face of Islam; throats slit, bodies hacked, burned alive, gunned down.
(Daily Mail) –Suspected Islamic militants killed 43 students in a pre-dawn attack Tuesday on a northeast Nigerian college, survivors said.
The terrorists, thought to be from Boko Haram, set a locked hostel on fire, before shooting and slitting the throats of those who tried to climb out the windows. Some were burned alive.
Adamu Garba said he and other teachers who ran away through the bush estimate 40 students died in the assault that began around 2 a.m. Tuesday at the Federal Government College at Buni Yadi.
It is a co-ed school about 45 miles south of Damaturu, the capital of Yobe state, and difficult to communicate with because extremists last year destroyed the cell phone tower there.
Garba, who teaches at a secondary school attached to the college, said the attackers first set ablaze the college administrative block, then moved to the hostels, where they locked students in and started firebombing the buildings.
At one hostel, he said: ‘Students were trying to climb out of the windows and they were slaughtered like sheep by the terrorists who slit their throats. Others who ran were gunned down.’
He said students who could not escape were burned alive
The attackers also reportedly hurled explosives into student residential buildings, sprayed gunfire into rooms and hacked a number students to death.
Yobe is one of three northeastern states which was placed under emergency rule in May last year when the military launched a massive operation to crush the Boko Haram uprising.At least 40 students were killed in September at an agriculture training college in Yobe after Boko Haram gunmen stormed a series of dorms in the middle of the night and sprayed gunfire on sleeping students.

Satan’s minions straight up.
Literally speaking that is. During a homicide belt demo the instructor accidentally killed 22 and injured 15 jihadists in training.
(The Hill) –Nearly two dozen militants were killed in a suicide bombing training class in Iraq Monday when the instructor accidentally set off a belt packed with explosives, the New York Times reports.
An Iraqi army officer said that the teacher conducting the class was a prolific recruiter who was “able to kill the bad guys for once.”
The Sunni militants were part of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which is battling Iraqi government forces in the country’s western Anbar province.
Twenty-two militants were killed in the blast — which occurred because the instructor conducted a demonstration with a belt he didn’t realize had live explosives — and 15 more were injured, Iraqi army and police officials told the Times.
Eight militants were arrested when they tried to escape the camp in the northeastern Samara province, the officials said.
The ISIS has overtaken cities in Anbar in recent weeks, including Fallujah, where U.S. forces once took heavy casualties.

While in Sanaa, Yemein in 2010, President Barack Obama’s brother Malik Obama was at an event billed as the Orphans Development Fund (ODF) Conference. It’s quite the ironic title considering a group photo Malik is in that he has posted to his website. In the photo, he can be seen wearing a Hamas scarf (keffiyeh) that bears a well-known Palestinian slogan – ‘Jerusalem is ours – WE ARE COMING!’ It also includes a map of Palestine that says, ‘From the River to the Sea!’ In other words, Malik is saying, THERE IS NO ISRAEL.
The keffiyeh (or scarf) doesn’t just say, ‘Al Aqsa is ours and is not their temple’. It also says ‘Innana Qadimun’, which translates to mean ‘We are marching forward’. This famous battle command which is a reference to the prophecy that some day the Muslim world will march on Jerusalem and then the trees and stones will cry out, ‘here is a Jew hiding behind me… come O Muslim, come and kill him’.
Much more here.
The Barack H. Obama Foundation was fast-tracked to IRS tax-exempt status at the same time that the IRS was abusing numerous Tea Party and conservative groups. While those groups’ tax-exempt applications were taking two years and mountains of paperwork and invasive queries about their memberships and activities, the Barack H. Obama Foundation won its status in just 30 days. That status was back-dated 38 months, which is against the law.
The scarf is a Hamas scarf. Hamas is a designated terrorist group according to the US State Department. It has held that status since 1997.
Sigh…irony like sarcasm can be an elusive creature.
And thus concludes your lesson in irony for the day.
You are welcome.

Documents obtained through an Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) FOIA request reveal the Obama regime gave the ‘Muslim Brotherhood (Palestinian terrorist group Hamas’ parent org/Pali MB jihad wing) security inspection free red carpet treatment upon their arrival in the U.S. in April of 2012. Including one so called ‘delegate’ who had been linked to a child porn investigation in the United States.
Meanwhile American citizens traveling across the US are subjected to highly invasive security pat downs and screenings. I do not care if you are Her Majesty the Queen of England, you should have to undergo the same security screenings that everyday Americans are forced to undergo. ‘Trust but verify’ would be a good rule of thumb when it comes to safety and security. Fair is fair! So it goes without saying that a group directly and openly linked to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas should face even more intensive security inspections when they arrive on American soil. Diplomacy is diplomacy. BUT bowing in appeasement to the Muslim Brotherhood; sworn enemies of the United States and all she stands for, is not in the best interest of the safety and security of her citizens! It is utter extreme left-wing “let’s give peace a chance” madness!
Newly released records confirm a 2012 Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) >report< that the State Department cleared the way for a visiting delegation of Muslim Brotherhood officials to enter the country without undergoing routine inspection by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.
The April 2012 visit came before the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate was elected Egypt’s president, although the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) had won a plurality of seats in parliamentary elections. The expedited entry is known as a “port courtesy” normally reserved for high-ranking visiting government officials and dignitaries.
The records, marked “sensitive but unclassified,” were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. They offer few details. The State Department released a one-page document labeled “Compiled References to MB Delegation Arrival and Departure” containing four separate communications between March 30 and April 16, 2012 about the Brotherhood delegation. It is not clear who wrote them or who received them.
“In the coming days, we’re going to write down a list of procedures for dealing with MB visits to the United States,” an April 16, 2012 entry says.
A March 30 communication offers help dealing with “FJP Delegation and POE [port of entry] Courtesies: Please let the desk know over the weekend if you’d like our help submitting to DHS the ‘Special Alerts,’ which are used to request that travelers not be pulled into secondary [inspection] upon arrival at a point of entry.”
But one member of the Brotherhood delegation, which >met< with U.S. academic and senior government officials, had been linked to a child pornography investigation in the United States years earlier. Under normal circumstances, he likely would have been subjected to extra scrutiny.
In addition, the Muslim Brotherhood has open connections with Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group which was created to be the Brotherhood’s Palestinian jihadist wing. That fact would have made a secondary inspection for the delegation a natural, if not for the State Department’s instructions.
A U.S. official familiar with immigration procedures told the IPT in 2012 that the exemption for the Brotherhood delegation was “extraordinary.”

( Colorado Springs Gazette) –Fort Carson officials evacuated Butts Army Airfield in response to an anonymous bomb threat Wednesday morning.
Military police and other forces were investigating and sweeping the complex, home to the 4th Combat Aviation Brigade, for explosives.
The post said it would release details on the investigation as they became available.
Coincidentally and on a more pleasant note, 90 Fort Carson soldiers were given a warm welcome last night after having returned home from a months long deployment in Afghanistan.
