Two Muslim mothers are comparing family photos…

Filed under Islamic Terrorism, Islamists at October 15th, 2009 - 9:52 pm

The older of the Muslim mothers pulls out her bag and starts flipping through family photos and reminiscing. “This is my oldest son, Mohamed. He would have been 24 now.”

The other mother replies, “Yes, I remember him as a baby.”

The first mother says, “He’s a martyr now.”

“Oh…That’s so sad, my dear.”

Then the first mother flips to another picture. “And this is my second son, Abdul. He would be 21.”

“Oh, I remember him. He had such curly hair when he was born.”

The first mother sighs, “He’s also a martyr.”

“Oh gracious me!!!” says the second mother.

“And this ….. this is my third son. My beautiful Ahmed! He would be 18 this year.”

” Why.. yes” says her friend enthusiastically, “I remember when he first started school!”

“He’s also a martyr”, the first mother says. She sobs. Her eyes fill with tears.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photos, gently lays her hand on the first woman’s shoulder and says: “They blow up so fast, don’t they?”

This is also an overnight/early morning open thread…

    She died in childbirth

    This is my next oldest daughter Rikfa. She would have been 10 now.
    She died on her honeymoon. Her husband didn’t like her skills

    This is my youngest daughter Aisha. She would have been 6 now. She was killed by my husband for wearing a Miley Cyrus shirt

    It would be nice if we could see the most recent comment date/time next to the total number of comments on the posts here so that it would be easier to spot if the post has had any new comments since we were here last.

    I’m not a serious audiophile anymore but I’ve discovered that the type of earpads can affect the sound quality of large, studio-style headphones. It’s quite remarkable, and good aftermarket earpads are now available that can improve on the original sound. I think the key is the little folds or creases on the leatherette material of the newer ones that prevents them from sealing too tight and causing a ‘cabin gain’ effect on the side of your head with consequent boomy bass tubby low-mids.

    In the Internet Explorer menu bar, go to tools, internet options, security tab, click Custom Level button. Scroll down to Scripting, disable the three scripts there, ie. Active scripting, Allow paste operations via script and Scripting of Java applets.

    Tools, Options, click on the content (globe) Icon the uncheck, Enable Java script and Enable Java

    None, really. NoScript will ask you if you want to give permission for a particular site and what kind of permissions you want to give. So you always have a choice and can authorize certain sites to be completely unblocked.

  36. 36 | October 15, 2009 11:22 pm

    sorry, reposting as upon further review, this is pretty interesting:

    LGF loaded fine for me.

    I’ve been investigating.

    Charles has a thread up, suggesting that a man named John Gimbel, aged 59, is a right wing extremist because he sent an email threatening to kill Obama and his family.

    I did a little research, something Charles may want to look up in a dictionary, and found out some interesting things.

    First, I don’t see him as a ‘right wing extremist’ . . . just a scumbag nutball. Why? Because he also made threats against President Bush and against Police in general:

    “He’s threatened members of our staff. He’s threatened dozens of other individuals and on various occasions, the president,” said the sheriff.
    Gimball was convicted of making threats toward Police Chief Doug Plack in 2004 on computer, according to Crescent City Police Department reports. Information about his sentence in that case was not available.

    “His most recent arrest was for contempt of court and making annoying telephone calls,” Wilson said of Gimball. “He calls my office on average once a week or more. He contacts us and leaves lots of threatening messages.”

    Wilson said the Secret Service had picked up Gimball before on suspicion of making threats toward former President George W. Bush.

    “The feds have been here several times for Mr. Gimball under the Bush administration and under the Obama administration — he is a non-partisan offender,” said Wilson.

    So the cops involved, who deal with this nut regularly say that he’s non-partisan. That took 1 minute of research. I spent the next 5 or 6 looking for a picture of Mr. Gimbel. Couldn’t find one. Anywhere. At all.

    I did find this, though, which is an offensive and racist screed he submitted for a lawsuit against the County he apparently lived in, for arresting him for calling for cops to get assassinated by people with ‘deer rifles’.

    Most of it is the unreadable rantings of a hateful soul. But near the end, something caught my eye. I could be wrong, and if someone has pictures of this guy that show otherwise, I’ll gladly admit it…. but the left keeps trying to push this ‘They hate Obama because they’re racist” stance…. and this guy calls himself “the greatest nig who ever lived.” and referred to some Saundra Armgstrong as a “black-cracker”

    …. is Gimbel Black? If so, is the press (which will not show his picture) and lgf passing off an insane black man who hates authority as a ‘racist right winger’?

    re: #36 by LanceKates

    Great research, Lance!

    You are probably right.

    The MSM is known for withholding racial information in stories as a way to advance their liberal agendas.

    Liberal blogs do this, too.


  38. 38 | October 15, 2009 11:28 pm

    re: #37 by Eliana

    I just wish I could find a picture of the guy. Unfortunately it is a common enough name that it pulls up lots of people from all over, but none I could find in CA. I even tried searching for mug shots in the SFPD system and the general county sites. nadda.

    The left-liberal Toronto Star could be the worst I’ve seen for withholding racial information in the service of their political agenda. They do this systematically—for example, two suspects 5’10″ and 6’0″ with dreadlocks and wearing tracksuits are sought….

    40 | October 15, 2009 11:33 pm

    re: #38 by LanceKates

    If this man is being described as a right wing extremist although he also threatened the life of President Bush, then it sounds like a good thread topic for Blogmocracy.

    One of the problems we’re facing is the constant smearing of us by liars like He Who Must Not Be Named and other radical leftist blogs.


  41. 41 | October 15, 2009 11:34 pm

    re: #40 by Eliana

    That’s why I want his picture before I post it, so it is wholly unable to be cast aside as conspiracy.

    re: #394 by LanceKates

    good work…
    I found this…
    “Federal authorities visited Gimbel in 2007 as well, after he threatened to “kill Bush and his family. Decapitate them with axes.” During the visit, Secret Service agents interviewed one of his sisters, who said Gimbel was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and was troubled after being discharged from the military. Documents also note that Gimbel owns several guns.”

    The guy is a diagnosed PARANOID SCHIZOPHRENIC!!!

    Maybe Chucky should have done that research… I would love to see a picture of this guy a the coup de grace

    John Gimbel has a record of threatening to kill government officials:

    April 2004: Gimbel is accused of making threats in an e-mail complaining about a $5 parking ticket, saying he would deputize “all of the citizens of Crescent City. … Grab those high-powered deer rifles, each and every, and get in groups of 50 and more and go breeze away to dust the skull of the police chief.”

    May 1, 2007: Gimbel sends an e-mail to NBC Universal to “kill Bush and his family.”

    May 7 and 13, 2007: Gimbel sends e-mails to 80 U.S. representatives and senators asking them to kill President George W. Bush.

    May 14, 2007: The Secret Service visits Gimbel at his Crescent City home. He tells them he
    is “harmless.” He said, “I just make ugly comments.”

    June 2007-June 2009: Gimbel sends more than 20 threatening e-mails.

    Sept. 7: Secret Service once again visits Gimbel.

    Oct. 13: Gimbel is indicted for threatening President Barack Obama

    http://www.sfexaminer.com/local/64415727.html

    ALL thoe other stuff before 9/7 is irrelevant. The only thing that matters is that he threatened Zero

    Morning, blogmocracy!

    A quick question for any IT minded folks.

    Why can’t I update anything?

    I seem to be able to download everything else.

    Am I infected or is it an ISP issue? (Comcast)

    I thought maybe it was just Microsoft, but my Trend won’t update either. And I can’t get to any anti-malware sites.

    Morning, kids!

    Thanks for tryin.’

    I’ve been surfing and noticed that our local paper has done it’s “civic duty” in promoting the Obama agenda by attempting to allay the cold people’s fears that “global warming” may be a load of horse manure by publishing a “maybe, maybe not” article.

    Morning Goddess,

    I am feeling very ‘fluish today. But onto more important topics, the reason why Limbaugh and Beck are being vilified is because they are recognized as a threat, not an irritation, but a real threat to their illiberal regressive s nefarious agenda.

    The speed and severity with which Rush Limbaugh was smeared and ousted is downright scary.

    The NFL is a slave to identity politics, and it saddens me because it is something that I enjoy very much.

    It’s also disheartening that no voices from within or around the NFL have come to his defense, or if they have the sports media hasn’t made it public.

    There are at least SOME of those volunteer opportunities that, IMHO, would be worthwhile. One that popped up in my area: volunteer reader/book drive organizer. It’d be interesting to go though the entire list of opportunities in an area and see what % of them could be labeled as ‘left wing’ (Planned Parenthood for example), what would be more ‘right wing’ (a Christian ministry promoting abstinence for example) and what would be ‘neutral’ (volunteer reader, work at a hospice or mentoring kids who have a parent in prison).

    Still, it’s not the role of Uncle Sam (or Uncle Barack) to push us into these things, and it’s sure as h-ll not ‘volunteering’ if you’re going through that stupid AmeriCorps program.

    Never in a million years did this group not know about what was going to happen.

    Plus the liberal media got a hold of this and ran WAY early.

    It’s a conservative = racist ploy on the part of the left.

    Oh I’m sure the TV shows are going to push, some subtly, some not so, more left-wing opportunities. And like you said, it’s not the role of the government to push this at all.

    Kids should find the things that they’re passionate about, not what the Chosen One or some Hollyweird type pushes them into.

    I joined a LONG time ago, without knowing that all of a sudden my account would be visible to all of these people simply by entering the name of my high school and graduation year.

    Now it’s handy if someone , say, on my Pink Floyd forum wants to post a video I can view it. But see that was MY choice.

    My fiancee is really into it too! And it’s been a really therapeutic thing for her, as she suffers from some insecurity from her youth, having had a Salvation Army family that moved around a lot as posted.

    She’s finding friends that she forgot she had, and it makes her happy.

    Me?

    There’s a reason I don’t hang out with people that I don’t hang out with!

    EXCLUSIVE: Obama loosens missile technology controls to China

    Keep your eyes on this one.

    “It is shocking that it would be delegated to the secretary of commerce, whose job it is to promote trade, rather than to the secretary of state or the secretary of defense, who have far more knowledge and responsibility within their organizations for missile technology,” Mr. Milhollin said.

    Mr. Milhollin said a similar delegation of power would have been criticized in previous administrations. “In fact, the delegation turns the present law upside down because Congress passed it after finding that the Commerce Department had improperly helped China import U.S. missile technology in the 1990s,” he said.

    Anyone still not convinced this zero is willfully trying to destroy this country?
