Afghan Christian Freed

The Afghan who converted to Christianity has just been released and charges dropped. Unfortunately, it won’t end here. There is something inherently evil and corrupt about a religion that mandates death for any member who converts to another religion. Even though he has been released, this poor fellow probably won’t live long. The Muslim clerics will simply issue a fatwah against him and somebody will slit his throat. Islam is the religion of savages and that’s all there is to it. The world would be a better place without this evil excuse for worship of God. Perhaps Western countries who practice religious tolerance should form a united front and ban the Muslim religion on the grounds that it is a nothing more than a cult of violence and death. Speak the truth.

Case Dropped Against Afghan Christian
Sunday, March 26, 2006

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- An Afghan court on Sunday dismissed a case against a man who converted from Islam to Christianity because of a lack of evidence and he will be released soon, officials said. The announcement came as U.S.-backed President Hamid Karzai faced mounting foreign pressure to free Abdul Rahman, a move that risked angering Muslim clerics here who have called for him to be killed.

An official closely involved with the case told The Associated Press that it had been returned to the prosecutors for more investigation, but that in the meantime, Rahman would be released. “The court dismissed today the case against Abdul Rahman for a lack of information and a lot of legal gaps in the case,” the official said Sunday, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

“The decision about his release will be taken possibly tomorrow,” the official added. “They don’t have to keep him in jail while the attorney general is looking into the case.” Abdul Wakil Omeri, a spokesman for the Supreme Court, confirmed that the case had been dismissed because of “problems with the prosecutors’ evidence.”

He said several of Rahman’s family members have testified that the 41-year-old has mental problems. “It is the job of the attorney general’s office to decide if he is mentally fit to stand trial,” he told AP. A Western diplomat, also declining to be identified because of the sensitivity of the case, said questions were being raised as to whether Rahman would stay in Afghanistan or go into exile in a foreign country.

A-P correspondent Daniel Cooney reports officials say the man could be released soon, but he’s been transferred from a police detention center to a notorious and overcrowded prison outside Kabul. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said she could not confirm that an Afghan court had dismissed the case and stressed the U.S. needs to respect the sovereignty of Afghanistan, which she called a “young democracy. We have our history of conflicts that had to be worked out after a new constitution. And so the Afghans are working on it. But America has stood solidly for religious freedom as a bedrock, the bedrock, of democracy, and we’ll see.” Rice said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Muslim Madmen Report

Shortly before he was deposed, Saddam Hussein ordered the use of camels of mass destruction ....

Saddam Hussein planned to use “camels of mass destruction” as weapons to defend Iraq, loading them with bombs and directing them towards invading forces.

The animals were part of a plan to arm and equip foreign insurgents drawn up by the dictator shortly before the American-led invasion three years ago, reveals a 37-page report, captured after the fall of Baghdad and just released by the Pentagon.

It is part of a cache of thousands of documents that the United States Department of Defence says it does not have the resources to translate.

Meanwhile, Al Qaeda has been working on ways to poison your beer ....

An alleged al Qaeda terrorist plotting a bomb attack on Britain told accomplices to sell contaminated beer at soccer games or poisoned hamburgers from street vending stalls, an FBI informant told a court Friday. Waheed Mahmood, 34, accused with six other British men of plotting a terror strike, claimed during a meeting in Pakistan that he had already tested the poison plan, said the witness, Mohammed Junaid Babar.

Babar, 31, a U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent, has testified that he met a group of British Islamic militants in Pakistan who planned to bomb Britain’s electricity network, a London nightclub or one of Europe’s largest shopping malls, a 330-store center in southern England. Babar, who secretly pleaded guilty to several terrorist offenses in New York federal court, including having links with al Qaeda, said the poison plan was raised by Mahmood during a meeting at the Pakistan home of another suspect, Salahuddin Amin, in a village outside Lahore, Pakistan, in February 2003.

Babar, who was escorted by two U.S. marshals and protected by armed British officers outside the courtroom doors, claimed Mahmood said “you could get a job in a soccer stadium as a beer vendor.” “You just put poison in a syringe, inject it in a beer can and put a sticker on it, which would stop it leaking, and hand them out,” Babar said, recounting Mahmood’s proposal.

Finally, in Iran the Mad Mullahs are only a week or two away from having enriched uranium for nuclear weapons ....

Iran could be running a 164-centrifuge pilot cascade to enrich uranium by the end of March or beginning of April, diplomats close to the UN nuclear watchdog told AFP. This comes as the United Nations Security Council is stalled over issuing a statement that would call on Iran to suspend enrichment, which Tehran says is to produce nuclear reactor fuel but can make atom bomb material.

At the pilot cascade in the Iranian city of Natanz, “there is just piping to be finished, then they do vacuum tests, then they would test with inert gas and finally they would put in uranium gas to begin the process,” said a diplomat close to the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

The diplomat, who asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the issue, said the cascade might be ready to begin enrichment as quickly as “within a week, maybe a week or two longer.

Yep, the Liberals in America are stuck on stupid and the Mad Muslims overseas are stuck on insanity. Ain’t it great being stuck in the middle with me?

First Carrier Landing


“Carrier Landing - 1911”

Less than eight years after Wilbur and Orville Wright proved that airplanes could fly, the US Navy was already experimenting with the new machines. Thinking ahead, the Navy built a “landing platform” on the foreward deck of the USS Pennsylvania and began tests of takeoffs and landings from the ship. Shown here, Eugene B. Ely lands his Curtiss pusher biplane on the USS Pennsylvania (Armored Cruiser # 4), anchored in San Francisco Bay, California. Ninety-five years ago, the age of Naval Aviation began.

Barking MoonBat Of The Week

We’ve only given this award to Gadaffi Duck about a gazillion times and he just never stops competing for the award. I’m beginning to think he is trying to take a major lead in Moonbat Points™ over the rest of the Middle East and he may succeed now that Yassir Arafish is defunct. Perhaps we should just give him permanent membership in the Barking Moonbat Hall Of Fame™ and be done with it. His latest attempt at an insanity defense has him lecturing the US on democracy and how much better the Libyan military dictatorship is. Kinda like Jacques Chirac lecturing the US on military strategy, eh ... ?

(Fashion Police Memo: Where in hell did he find that damned awful purple dress?)

imageimageGaddafi Lectures U.S. On Democracy
Friday, March 24, 9:35 AM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi lectured a U.S. audience on democracy on Thursday and said Libya is the only real democracy in the world. Via a video link, Gaddafi addressed an unprecedented gathering of U.S. and Libyan academics prompted by a thaw in relations since the former pariah state decided in 2003 to abandon nuclear weapons and took responsibility for the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.

He touted Libya’s political system as superior to “farcical” and “fake” parliamentary and representative democracies in the West. There is no state with a democracy except Libya on the whole planet,” Gaddafi said to the conference at Columbia University in New York. Libya’s Jamahiriyah system, under which Libyans can air their views at “people’s congresses,” is genuine democracy, said Gaddafi, who spoke through a translator and was dressed in purple robes and seated at a desk in front of a map of Africa.

The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency’s World Factbook describes Libya’s government as: “Jamahiriyah (a state of the masses) in theory, governed by the populace through local councils; in fact, a military dictatorship.” Gaddafi said Libya’s new openness would not lead Libyans to covet what they do not have—on the contrary, he said, the rest of the world would soon be emulating Libya. “Countries like the United States, India, China, the Russian Federation, are in bad need of this Jamahiriyah system,” he said. “This is a savior to them.”

Older Than Dirt

Just think. When this creature was born, the United States was only a dream, the King of France still had his head, Germany was known as the Holy Roman Empire, Mozart was still in diapers, St. Louis didn’t exist and the Middle East was populated with narrow-minded, feuding tribes of insane madmen. A lot has changed in the course of this tortoise’s life ... but some things remain the same. Rest in peace.


CALCUTTA, India—One of the world’s oldest creatures, a giant tortoise believed to have been about 250 years old, has died in the Calcutta zoo where it spent more than half its long life. Addwaita, which means “the one and only” in the local Bengali language, was one of four Aldabra tortoises brought to India by British sailors in the 18th century.

Zoo officials say he was a gift for Lord Robert Clive of the East India Company, who was instrumental in establishing British colonial rule in India, before he returned to England in 1767. Long after the other three tortoises died, Addwaita continued to thrive, living in Clive’s garden before being moved to the zoo in 1875.

Howling Hyenas

imageimageIt looks like the Rabid Left™ has won another one. The vicious mob in Liberal-Land stands ever vigilant with flaming torches and pitchforks ready to storm the Castle of Reason at the drop of a hat. Personally, I wouldn’t trust the WAPO as far as I could throw one of their presses ...

- Friday, March 24 - Washington Post: “Ben Domenech Resigns Over Plagiarism Charges”

- Friday, March 24 - Human Events Online: “Blogger Ben Domenech Calls Washington Post Editors Fools”

There’s more from Michelle Malkin, Rick Moran, and Junkyard Blog.

From what I read, Ben is guilty as charged. Not just of plagiarism at his college newspaper but when he worked at National Review. Is that an excuse for the Leftists making prank phone calls to his house and sending threatening e-mails? Of course not. However, as any non-Liberal blogger knows, the blogosphere can be a dangerous place.

I myself have a huge archive of hate e-mail, death threats, vicious personal attacks and (believe it or not) photoshopped pictures of myself and a few cartoon drawings of yours truly that defy explanation. All of this is definite proof that Liberal America has come totally unhinged. I know other conservative bloggers who have received similar invective from the Angry Left and worse.

Part of it I blame on the nature of the internet. We are all so isolated from each other and insulated by e-mail and blogs that there is often an urge to say things we would never say in person (for risk of a knuckle sandwich). The vast majority of the blame however, has to go to Al Gore and the Democratic Party. If only Gore had gracefully accepted defeat in 2000 and if Howard Dean had been less vituperative and if Tom Daschle had been a little more cooperative and if .... you get the picture.

I hope Ben recovers from this fiasco and can get on with his career, a little wiser in his choice of words. As for the Angry Left, there’s no hope. We are doomed to be plagued by them until their unquenchable anger and hatred eventually burns out. I only hope I can hold out that long. It looks like we’re in for a long bonfire as the mad villagers of Leftville scream and dance around the flames with pitchforks all ready for the next conservative to sally forth from the castle ...

Mexican Madness In Milwaukee

"A Day Without Mexicans”? Que pasa, hombre? (That’s spanish for “WTF, dude?") Congress has already passed Sensenbrenner’s bill and the Senate is poised to do the same. All the bills do is make it a felony to do something that is already illegal. It also cracks down on employers, forcing them to verify the status of workers or suffer penalties. Of course, the Donks are livid over this. The very idea of taking away their maids and gardeners is making the Hildabeast and her friends outraged.

Personally, I think a guest-worker program is OK but we need to start from a legal position first. There are 11 million Mexicans in this country now illegally. Are we a nation of laws or not? If they’re here illegally, send them home or lock them up. That is the law, by the way. Then and only then can we setup some kind of guest worker program and allow them to come work here. Unfortunately, the Democrats think the “law” is only a suggestion that they don’t necessarily have to follow if they don’t want to. Maybe we need to deport the Donks first, starting with Shrillary? But then again, who’d take her ... ?

imageimage Hispanics March In Milwaukee Against Immigration Bills
Thursday, March 23, 2006 10:41 p.m. EST (03:41 GMT)


Thousands of demonstrators marched in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Thursday to oppose tough anti-immigration legislation sponsored by their Republican congressman Jim Sensenbrenner. House Resolution 4437 would make all undocumented immigrants felons and require all employers to verify the immigration status of its employees.

The House already has passed Sensenbrenner’s bill, and Sen. Bill Frist, R-Tennessee, has introduced a companion bill in the Senate that also would make it a felony to be in the United States without the proper paperwork. Sensenbrenner said in a statement last year that his bill would help “regain control of our borders and prevent illegal immigration” as well as “help strengthen and promote our compassionate and welcoming legal immigration system.”

About 30,000 protesters on Thursday marched into downtown Milwaukee as part of a demonstration titled “A Day Without Latinos” in which Latinos were encouraged to take time from their jobs to march, according to Voces de la Frontera, which organized the event. A police spokesman said the crowd was between 10,000 and 15,000.

Dozens of Milwaukee businesses also closed Thursday in protest. “A Day Without Latinos,” the theme of the Milwaukee protest, borrows its name from a 2004 comedy called “A Day Without a Mexican,” in which California wakes up one day to find that its Hispanic residents have inexplicably disappeared. The Milwaukee march was one of several recent protests organized across the nation by groups opposed to immigration bills considered by Congress.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has until Monday to vote on the competing legislation, but one Senate aide said the prospects on Senators taking action did not seem bright. The aide called negotiations in the Senate “slow going” and predicted a showdown over the bill. Critics of the legislation say Sensenbrenner is trying to deport the 11 million to 12 million people who are in the United States illegally. Proponents say keeping tabs on immigrants is vital to national security. President Bush echoed that sentiment in comments to reporters Thursday.

“Part of enforcing our borders is to have a guest-worker program that encourages people to register their presence, so that we know who they are and says to them, ‘If you’re doing a job an American won’t do, you’re welcome here for a period of time to do that job.’ “ But Democrats are saying the Frist and Sensenbrenner measures go too far, especially the provisions that threaten to criminalize anyone who helps an undocumented immigrant. “This bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself,” said Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

The title of this post says it all. The Gaza Strip is nothing less than a “Cuckoo’s Nest”. The Imams there have been saying the bird flu was sent by Allah to destroy the Jews. Unfortunately, the bird flu has now been found in Gaza ... which is the most heavily populated area on earth with about 2.3 people per square foot (by my best estimate, based on latest figures from the CIA Factbook - 1.3 million people in an area 40 miles long and 4 miles wide).

Unfortunately for the entire civilized world, the Israelis are trying to help the Paleosimians contain the virus. It would be better if they would just let the idjits rot in their pig sty. I know that’s an inhumane thought on my part but is it any worse than the way the Paleswinians feel about Americans and Isralis? Maybe God does have a hand in this after all. Someone contact Pat Robertson and see if he’s heard anything from The Almighty lately ...

imageimageGaza Bird Flu Fears Spread, Fowl To Be Destroyed
24 Mar 2006 15:16:02 GMT

GAZA (Reuters)

Palestinian authorities will begin destroying chickens on Saturday at a farm near the border with Israel in a bid to contain an outbreak of the deadly H5N1 bird flu virus, Palestinian medics said on Friday. The culling of hundreds of chickens at the farm near the southern Gaza city of Rafah will be the first in Gaza. Tests were under way at another chicken farm in central Gaza where authorities suspect the virus may have spread.

Many worried Palestinians have reacted to the outbreak by buying more fish and beef, sending prices in Gaza markets soaring. Chicken and egg prices have sharply dropped over fears by Gazans that they could be infected. Health officials say it is safe to eat chicken and eggs that are properly cooked.

Israel plans to give Palestinian authorities enough poison to eliminate birds suspected of being infected, Israel Radio reported. Israel has for months been testing dead fowl found in the West Bank and Gaza Strip on behalf of the Palestinian Authority. Palestinian medics said they have received protective gear from Israel to help them deal with the virus. There have been no confirmed cases of the virus infecting humans in Gaza or the West Bank.

Many Gazans fear the Palestinian Ministry of Health is ill equipped to deal with an outbreak and will be quickly be overwhelmed if the virus spreads. Israel is likewise concerned. Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni has asked U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the World Bank’s president for assistance in containing the outbreak in Gaza.

imageimageWily Coyote Caught in New York City After 2-Day Chase
March 22, 2006


After leading dozens of police officers on a two-day chase through New York’s Central Park, the year-old coyote was captured yesterday. The first sightings of the animal—nicknamed Hal by park workers—came early Sunday, and the hunt began on Tuesday. News helicopters filmed police and park rangers in pursuit.

Before his capture, Hal proved a cunning escape artist, leaping over an 8-foot (2.4-meter) fence, ducking under a bridge, and even scrambling across a skating rink. Officials chased the coyote on foot and in a helicopter before finally slowing him down with a tranquilizer gun near the Belvedere Castle lookout, close to 79th Street and Central Park West. (See photos of Central Park landmarks.)

Piles of feathers left in his wake suggested the hungry critter had been dining on the park’s ducks and other birds. “He’s a very adventurous coyote to travel to midtown Manhattan,” New York City Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe told reporters. The tawny-colored, 35-pound (16-kilogram) male will be taken to a wildlife center outside the city, officials said.

How Hal found his way into Central Park is not known. Park officials believe the adventurous critter may have slipped into Manhattan from suburban Westchester County to the north or perhaps crossed the Hudson River via a bridge from New Jersey.

“There are coyotes in more places than people know,” said Wendy Arjo, a wildlife biologist and coyote expert with the National Wildlife Research Center in Olympia, Washington. ”I guarantee that most people don’t know that coyotes are walking down the streets of Chicago, for example, until their dog or cat goes missing and they wonder what’s going on.”

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
