Libyans want Sharia Law

In 2011 the Obama Regime and it’s quisling Republican enablers, lead by John McCain, assisted Islamist rebels in overthrowing Qaddafi. They lied to the American people that this was a revolution for Democracy. It was nothing moire than Islamists overthrowing an Arab Nationalist Secular regime. Qaddafi had been an American ally against Al-Qaeda and had given up his WMD program. Now Libya is set to make Sharia law the cornerstone of their “democracy.”

“Egypt is Islamic, it will not be secular!” Islamist supporters of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi have taken to chanting this slogan during street protests in Cairo. While the mantra fills opponents of the Egyptian president with dread, as does a Morsi-backed draft Constitution ensuring laws and rights will be strictly subordinated to sharia law, such chants would hardly prove controversial in Libya, Egypt’s neighboring Arab-Spring country—nor would they propel tens of thousands onto the streets of Tripoli or Benghazi to express dissent.

The constitutional debate that Libya is likely to have in the coming months—once its new rulers have decided on how to proceed with a draft—is going to be different from Egypt’s, and less about whether Islamic law should figure in the Constitution. Across the political spectrum, there’s a general acceptance that the country’s new laws must reflect religion and that sharia will figure prominently—only a small minority question this.

During the campaign for the country’s elections last July, party leaders—even those from moderate parties, such as Mahmoud Jibril, leader of the National Forces Alliance—acknowledged that sharia would significantly influence any Constitution. New laws should have a “reference to sharia,” Jibril told The Daily Beast, arguing, “Sharia law, when it was understood in the proper way, managed to create one of the great civilizations in human history. The problem is not with sharia or Islam; the problem is with the interpretation of sharia.”

That is what is in dispute between the Muslim Brotherhood and the “Moderates” in Libya. It’s how Sharia law is interpreted, not if it is valid for the 21st Century. Qaddafi, for all his faults, was a secular ruler and no threat to us. Libya is just another emirate in the growing Sunni Islamic Caliphate brought you with your taxpayer dollars!

These are McCain’s heroes.

    I am shocked! shocked I tell you, at the events unfolding in Libya, exactly by the way as was predicted over and over and over again here at the Blogmocracy. What is even more astounding is the number of people here making this prediction only includes about……..Everyone! It’s like, who on Earth could possibly have known that this whole thing could have gone so horribly awry? Shocking!

    Qaddafi had been an American ally against Al-Qaeda and had given up his WMD program.

    I don’t know that I’d call Kadaffy Duck an ally exactly, but he had given up his WMD programs. There are something like 50,000 tons of nuclear related materials stored at Y-12 that he turned over to us. By betraying him in the name of the Arab Spring®, we have guaranteed that no other regime will peacefully give up their WMD programs. Indeed, since we are allowing Iran to get nuclear weapons, it is hard tfor me to see a down side for any despotic regime to building nukes. Obama may talk a good game on non-proliferation, but what he really means in unilateral disarmament, which is national suicide.

    The GOP could have used this against Obama. But no, they are too beholden to they spread Democracy garbage.

    @ Iron Fist:

    Of course, when Libya fell, there was a going out of business sale at the weapons depot, where people were pulling up, loading up the Toyota Tundra and driving off into the night. Al-Qaeda got themselves quite the little arsenal out of this. And these same weapons were used by Hamas to fire at Israel in the last barrage of missile launching.

    I’m still seeing that “Seven Days in May” scenario in my head when it comes to Obama, and this time Burt Lancaster is the GOOD guy.

    @ Rodan:

    There were a lot of those things that could have been brought up and used as campaign issues, not the least of which was Obamacare. But no, the GOP sent out its plea of, “Help us Romneywankenobi, you’re our only hope.”

    I am still somewhat sick at the squandered opportunity to right the ship this November. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory seems to be the only thing the Republican Party really excels at anymore.

    By the way, people are really bashing Newt for his statements on the Sunday talk shows this past weekend, just so happens that the man is actually right in what he said. Just my humble opinion.

    That is only at the National Level. At the State level the Republican Party is doing considerably better. Look at the Right to Work victory in Michigan. We hold the majority of the State houses, and we are going to get to see in real time the results of Democrat governance versus Republican governance. If we had the Federalism that was deliniated in th eConstitution, we’d be in the driver’s seat, but so much has been taken over by the Federal Government that control of the Central Government means control of everyone’s life. That is something that, long term, we need to change if we are to survive as a country.

    @ Iron Fist:

    A good point, but there is something within your answer that says a lot.

    If we had the Federalism that was deliniated in th eConstitution, we’d be in the driver’s seat, but so much has been taken over by the Federal Government that control of the Central Government means control of everyone’s life. That is something that, long term, we need to change if we are to survive as a country.

    The major problem we face is that we were way late in realizing the fight that has been happening here, and then our side attempted not to fight the evil, but to co-opt the other side instead. The result was two national parties based on big and increasingly intrusive government, the only difference being, who was in charge of the decline.

    The Republicans have done much better at the state and local levels recently, but if the federal behemoth keeps growing, who really cares? I can see a day when President for Life Eric Holder simply abolishes the states entirely, and lord Van Jones travels the country side placing former GOP leaders in reeducation camps.

    Before anyone has a break down, that’s hyperbole.

    During an appearance on the program of MSNBC’s race-baiter-in-chief Al Sharpton, entertainer Harry Belafonte lashed out at Republicans, saying that their continued presence in Washington, DC constituted an “infection” of sorts. He also told his host that the only thing left for Obama to do with opposition figures who continue to disagree with him was to “Work like a Third World dictator and just put all these guys in jail.”

    @ eaglesoars:

    That is what they want to do, but the Second Amendment makes that pretty perilous to do. The people sent out to do the mass arrests won’t have cowering peasants to arrest, but in many cases armed citizens. The kind of thugs that like to do things like that don’t play well with armed citizens. They consider it unfair. Fuck ‘em. Send a few of them home in body bags, and the rest will decide that being a dictator’s thug isn’t the lifestyle for them.

    @ eaglesoars:

    Yeah, they can do it in limited circumstances. If they came for me today with a trumped-up arrest warrent, I wouldn’t resist, either. Knowng when to resist is important. If the Waco Massacre proved nothing else, it proved that if the media and government sufficiently demonize a marginal group of people, then the government can kill them without reprecussions. MAss arrests, though, would be a clear red line. Frankly, though, it doesn’t matter so much that we would resist as that we could resist. It is much harder to cow an armed populace through mass terror. That is why (among others) Nazi Germany and Leninist USSR banned the ownership of weapons by the masses (though in Nazi Germany Nazi Party members were permitted to own guns) before they embarked on their reign of terror.

    It’s not hyperbole.

    Transit authorities in cities across the country are quietly installing microphone-enabled surveillance systems on public buses that would give them the ability to record and store private conversations, according to documents obtained by a news outlet.

    The systems are being installed in San Francisco, Baltimore, and other cities with funding from the Department of Homeland Security in some cases, according to the Daily, which obtained copies of contracts, procurement requests, specs and other documents.

    The systems use cables or WiFi to pair audio conversations with camera images in order to produce synchronous recordings. Audio and video can be monitored in real-time.

    In Eugene, Oregon, the Daily found, transit officials requested microphones that would be capable of “distilling clear conversations from the background noise of other voices, wind, traffic, windshields wipers and engines” and also wanted at least five audio channels spread across each bus that would be “paired with one or more camera images and recorded synchronously with the video for simultaneous playback.”

    I’m truly sorry for the people of Libya (and Syria). Some of the best people I’ve ever known were men from Libya who literally guarded me in my apt after I was asaulted until the cops caught the SOB.

    But this is MY country. These are MY freedoms.

    Louis Freeh and Larry Potts both lied to Janet Reno, telling her children were being abused. Ruby Ridge was worse. By far. Potts was eventually fired but he should be in jail.

    I double checked because of California’s law regarding the recording of conversations (requires all parties’ permission); it doesn’t apply to recordings commissioned by the government.

    I read the book “Every Knee Shall Bow” with an eye toward loathing Randy Weaver. I don’t like the White Supremicism that Weaver stood for, and his anti-semitism, but the hounding of this man and the entrapment was abominable.

    They killed his wife as she was holding a baby and holding open a door and killed his son. They held siege on his home for what -- a week? The remark by his daughter when they finally came down off the mountain and she saw the array of law enforcement vehicles: “All this for one family?”

    Weaver received millions for the ineptitude of the federal government and its rules of engagement and Gerry Spence got him acquitted of the gun charges.

    Obama is going to stay as far away from this controversy as he can. After all, what does he care -- he certainly no longer needs any union contributions for a re-election campaign and he’s already shown that he couldn’t care less if the other Democrats contributions -- after all, he was quite unwilling to share the wealth (odd that, huh?) in his billion-dollar fundraising. If union contributions diminish, it neither affects him financially or politically.

    Interesting that you should bring that up. I am usually dismissive of books by defense attorneys as attempts to minimize the culpability of their client(s). In this case, though, I think Jones was trying to send out a clarion call to WAKE UP -- the Clinton DOJ needed to do further investigation.

    You can thank Janet Reno for that one, for sure. But no one wanted to go further -- McVeigh was executed for the killing of the federal employees and Nichols is in prison for life with no parole for the 161 other deaths that day.

    EMP test?

    South Korea said Thursday a rocket successfully launched into orbit by North Korea appears to be orbiting the Earth normally, but the country says it does not know whether the rocket is functioning properly.

    South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok told reporters that the satellite is orbiting at a speed of 4.7 miles per second but it’s not known what mission it is performing. He says it takes two weeks to determine whether a satellite works successfully after liftoff.

    The news comes after a defiant North Korea released images and control room footage of the feat, which the U.S. and other nations have labeled a “provocative” act.

    The rogue regime fired the long-range rocket into space Wednesday, defying international warnings and taking a major step forward in its quest to develop a nuclear missile. While the stated purpose was to put a weather satellite into orbit, the three-stage rocket’s deployment also demonstrates the nation’s ability to send a nuclear warhead as far as California, and raises the stakes in the international standoff over North Korea’s expanding atomic arsenal.

    WASHINGTON — The Chinese military used a ground-based missile to hit and destroy one of its aging satellites orbiting more than 500 miles in space last week — a high-stakes test demonstrating China’s ability to target regions of space that are home to US spy satellites and space-based missile defense systems.

    The test of anti satellite technology is believed to be the first of its kind in two decades by any nation and raised concerns about the vulnerability of US satellites and a possible arms race in space.

    China’s action drew sharp protests from other nations with satellite programs — a predictable response that experts said dramatically illustrates Chinese willingness to face broad international criticism when it comes to space, which Beijing considers a key part of the push to modernize its military and increase its ability to compete in high-tech warfare.

    Progressive activists are telling the White House and congressional Democrats that they would prefer no fiscal-cliff deal to one that sacrificed any benefits for Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid. Coupled with warnings that liberals would support primary challenges to Democrats who embrace such cuts, this further complicates the hunt for a compromise before the end of the year.

    In the view of many of the activists who are monitoring the talks, the progressive agenda is advanced by inaction that lets the Bush tax cuts lapse because they believe the new Congress would undo the worst of the spending cuts in January. That view, though, worries the champions of education and student-loan programs that would take a big hit from the sequester.

    Obama is going to stay as far away from this controversy as he can. After all, what does he care — he certainly no longer needs any union contributions for a re-election campaign and he’s already shown that he couldn’t care less if the other Democrats contributions — after all, he was quite unwilling to share the wealth (odd that, huh?) in his billion-dollar fundraising. If union contributions diminish, it neither affects him financially or politically.

    In the view of many of the activists who are monitoring the talks, the progressive agenda is advanced by inaction that lets the Bush tax cuts lapse because they believe the new Congress would undo the worst of the spending cuts in January. That view, though, worries the champions of education and student-loan programs that would take a big hit from the sequester.

Or if you start from the front instead of the back of the neck? Yep. Lots of room for interpretation. Sharia law financing is bullsh!t too. Instead of charging you interest, they just add all the interest to the price up front when you get the loan. That’s what I’ve read.

    Kuwaiti MPs this week approved a law with a death penalty for Muslims who curse God, the Koran, all prophets and the wives of Islam’s Prophet Mohammed. Non-Muslims who commit the same offence face a jail term of not less than 10 years, according to the bill.

    Defendants who repent in court will be spared capital punishment but will get a jail sentence for five years and a fine of $36,000 or one of them, while repentance by those who repeat the crime is not acceptable, the bill says.

    Yup, it was a confluence of events. I think Timothy McVeigh was set up. i am not defending the asshole, but OKC smells like a sting operation/false flag. Clinton’s political comeback began with OKC bombing. Remember back then, we were allies with AQ. It would not be hard to get them to goad McVeigh into doing this.

    For months, federal agencies and the White House have sidetracked dozens of major regulations that cover everything from power plant pollution to workplace safety to a crackdown on Wall Street.

    The rules had been largely put on hold during the presidential campaign as the White House sought to quiet Republican charges that President Barack Obama was an overzealous regulator who is killing U.S. jobs.

    But since the election, the Obama administration has quietly reopened the regulations pipeline.

    In recent weeks, the Environmental Protection Agency has proposed rules to update water quality guidelines for beaches and other recreational waters and deal with runoff from logging roads. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, meanwhile, has proposed long-delayed regulations requiring auto makers to include event data recorders -- better known as “black boxes” -- in all new cars and light trucks beginning in 2014.

Yousef was convicted in abstentia of his role in attempting to blow up the WTC 1993, was in the Philippines attempting to assassinate the Pope during a trip to Manila, and was studying his uncles proposal to blow up international airlines flying to the US or Operation Bojinka. McVeigh and Nichols received a lot of support and instruction from AQ linked elements. In OKC, there were 23 witnesses who put an Iraqi ex-pat named Hussein al Husseini in the company of McVeigh before and the morning of the bombing. al Husseini was a probable Republican Guard member who was recently arrested for beating another homeless guy with a bottle in Massachussets. On 11 Sept, al Husseini was working as a food caterer delivering food to airlines at Logan Int’l.

    Hussein Hashem al Husseini is a unique case. He matches the description of John Doe #2, was witnessed by one lady in the building as he climbed out of the Ryder truck. He was witnessed at the hotel that McVeigh stayed at, he was witnessed in a bar with McVeigh on a few occasions, and would later get a DUI leaving after the bombing.
    He tried to sue Jayna Davis and the newschannel she worked for by tailing him so hard, though he was never identified by ‘face’ or name. He eventually ended the lawsuit. He was undergoing psychiatric care for unknown issues, but telling was a statement that he had dreams of McVeigh telling him he should be in the chair with him, and of the children killed in the daycare. Then was leaving OKC for Boston, and stated that if something bad happened there, he would be blamed. The FBI did interview him several times but amazingly it ended right there. As suddenly as the John Doe number two picture disappeared from our TV screens.
