10 Horrible Atrocities Committed By The SS

This illustrates just how vicious the Nazis and the S. S. were.

The Schutzstaffel, better known as the SS, was the black soul of the Nazi regime. The group, whose name means “Protection Squadron,” was established in 1925 to provide security for Hitler and other Nazi leaders. When Heinrich Himmler became the head of the SS in 1929, it was a turning point. Himmler wanted the SS to become an elite organization that was representative of the Nazi party’s master-race beliefs. He used ancestry and political loyalty to carefully vet all who were deemed ideal for the SS. They were to become the guardians of “racial purity.”

Originally, it was a small group of eight men who were essentially bodyguards, but slowly, their importance within the party grew. As their power and numbers swelled, so did their brutality. By the end of World War II, when the SS was more than 580,000 strong, they were killing thousands of people daily.

10Torturing Political Prisoners



The first concentration camp established by the Nazis was in Dachau, Germany, before the onset of World War II. It became well known after the war because of the medical experiments performed there. However, in March 1933, this house of horrors was a holding site for German political prisoners, not Jews.


Hitler had become Germany’s chancellor a few months earlier, and speaking out against him was now a capital crime. Approximately 4,800 prisoners were held at the SS-guarded Dachau concentration camp that year, many of which were communists, socialists, and democrats. Without a trial, the political opponents were either imprisoned or executed in the concentration camp. The murder of prisoner Sebastian Nefzger, just a few months after the camp opened, prompted a very public investigation by one of Munich’s public prosecutors.

After unfavorable findings, Hitler ordered that the concentration camp would no longer fall under judicial oversight and that the SS would be solely in charge of its affairs. This, of course, meant there would no longer be any investigations into the deaths that happened at Dachau, and the SS would have the ability to kill prisoners without question. The new regulations for Dachau stated that prisoners who didn’t follow the rules would be beaten and that anyone who tried to escape would be executed on the spot. These regulations became standard for all subsequent concentration camps.

9The Night Of The Long Knives

Shortly after the SS was established, their reputation for being heartless thugs that carried out the dirty work of Nazi leaders began to take shape. As early as 1921, when he became the leader of the National Socialist German Workers’ (Nazi) Party, Hitler was already encouraging his followers to act out violently against his political opponents.

By April 1934, Himmler, already leader of the SS, had also been named the head of the Geheime Staatspolizei, or Gestapo, a secret state police organization. In that role, he was charged with tracking down and arresting Hitler’s opponents, but he wasn’t just looking outside of the Nazi party for enemies. Himmler also turned his attention to people that were seen as threats within the party, particularly those in the paramilitary organization known as the Sturmabteilung (SA). The SS was originally an offshoot of the SA, but by 1934, the SA was far too independent, and potentially powerful, for Hitler’s liking.

In an effort to further consolidate control under Hitler, the decision was made to eliminate his opponents. Chief among them was the head of the SA, Ernst Rohm. In an operation orchestrated largely by the SS, from June 30–July 2, 1934, people who were considered to be opponents were rounded up and eliminated. In total, more than 85 murders were carried out (although hundreds are likely), most of which were done by members of the SS. This three-day killing spree came to known as “The Night of the Long Knives,” in reference to the ancient Saxon surprise attack and massacre of the Britons.

8The SS Einsatzgruppen’s Destructive Polish Campaign

The top concern for the SS was annihilating anything and everyone that was considered a threat to the Nazis. One way they did this was with the Einsatzgruppen. The SS Einsatzgruppen was a paramilitary task force that was formed in 1938, when Austria and parts of Czechoslovakia were being annexed and occupied by Germany.

At first, the Einsatzgruppen served primarily as a support group for the military, but that all changed with the invasion of Poland in 1939. When the Polish Campaign began, roughly 3,000 men in the Einsatzgruppen wereorganized into six units. Their purpose was to eliminate Jewish people and any Polish political opposition that remained after German troops overran an area.

From September 1–October 25, 1939, the Einsatzgruppen were responsible for more than 16,000 deaths and the destruction of over 500 towns in Poland. In the first few weeks of the Polish invasion alone, there were 10,000 arrests. Though trials were originally held, Reinhard Heydrich, the commander of the SS intelligence service Sicherheitsdienst (SD), ordered that people be shot or hanged without trial. His reason—the killings weren’t happening quick enough.

The Einsatzgruppen mostly shot people whom they deemed to be the opposition, but there are records of hundreds being burned alive in synagogues. The killings were so brutal that German army commanders complained about the Einsatzgruppen’s activities.

7Establishing The Generalgouvernement

When Germany invaded Poland in 1939, it launched World War II and gave the Nazis more territorial control. Poland was split into three regions, and the central region became known as Generalgouvernement. From the very beginning, Generalgouvernement was meant to be a place where the SS could carry out some of its worst atrocities against the Jewish people.

Although Hans Frank was the governor-general of Generalgouvernement, it was SS-Obergruppenfuehrer Friedrich Kruger who actually ran the region. He, his SS underlings, and the police forces they controlled were there to carry out the Nazis’ racial policies. They also used the 12 million people living within the Generalgouvernement as cheap labor. Nothing but complete obedience was acceptable. If the Polish opposition killed a German, the SS would publicly execute 50–100 Poles.

The SS also carried out mass killings and arrests simply to send a message and to keep the opposition stifled. Many Polish institutions were destroyed, art and historic artifacts were stolen, and their financial institutions were usurped. The Germans even controlled the food sources and left the Poles with barely enough food to survive. But the situation was far worse for Jewish Poles. Shortly after the invasion, their property was taken, and they were forced into slave labor. Three years later, many were sent to nearby extermination camps, where the vast majority of them were killed.

6The Night Of Crystal



Kristallnacht, also known as the Night of Crystal or Night of Broken Glass, was a bloody, two-day uprising that was orchestrated by Nazi officials and the SA. On November 9, 1938, local Nazi offices across Germany, Austria, and Sudetenland, in Czechoslovakia, received orders that a “spontaneous” pogrom would take place. “Pogrom” is a Russian term that describes rioting and attacks against Jews by non-Jews.

The orders for the pogrom included not harming non-Jewish Germans and foreigners, removing synagogue archives before destroying the building, and bringing the archives to Secret Service officials. Firefighters were directed to stand by while Jewish synagogues and businesses burned to the ground and to only intervene if the fire looked like it could spread to Aryan properties. The local police were also told to arrest as many healthy, young Jewish men as possible.

In the two days of the Kristallnacht, 267 synagogues were destroyed, hundreds more were damaged, over 7,500 Jewish businesses were vandalized, at least 91 Jews were murdered, and countless rapes were noted in police records. During Kristallnacht, the SS and Gestapo arrested over 30,000 Jewish men and incarcerated them in concentration camps, where hundreds ultimately died. It was the first time the Nazis conducted a mass incarceration based on ethnicity, but it wouldn’t be the last. Kristallnacht was the excuse the Nazis needed for beginning the process of emigrating Jews out of Germany and transferring their property to Aryan individuals.

To add insult to injury, German officials publicly announced that the Jewish community was to blame for the pogrom and fined German Jews the equivalent of $400 million. The Third Reich also seized insurance payouts from the Jewish homeowners and business owners who suffered property damage during the event.

5Kidnapping And Germanization Of Aryan Children



The SS was charged with protecting the Nazi idea of racial purity. This meant eliminating non-Aryans and also increasing the number of hereditarily valuable people. In other words, the Third Reich wanted the racially selected SS members to have as many blue-eyed, blonde-headed children as possible to build the Aryan race.

But the SS took their plans much further. They didn’t want Aryan traits to go to waste just because children were Polish or from another country outside of Germany. As far as the SS was concerned, their genetic traits were desirable and proof that Nordic blood ran through their veins.

In 1939, Himmler made it clear during a speech that the intent in Poland was to parse out the Aryan children. He stated, “A fundamental question is the racial screening and sifting of the young. It is obvious that in this mixture of people some very good racial types will appear from time to time.” The Germans proceeded to systematically assess all of the Polish children between ages 2-12 and categorize them as racially valuable or racially worthless. The “worthless” children who were old enough were sent to work in Germany rather than being sent back home. The “valuable” children were ripped from their families to become a part of Germany’s master race.

Children over the age of six were sent to institutions for Germanization, or in other words, indoctrination. The younger children were further assessed and then given to childless SS members and “families of good race.” Correspondence from SS leaders like Lieutenant General Ulrich Greifelt made it clear that the operation was to be shrouded in secrecy. The leadership fabricated the story that these stolen children were German orphans from regained territories. As a result, many of the German families were completely unaware that the adopted children had actually been kidnapped.

It is estimated that around 200,000 children in Poland were taken from their families, and another 200,000 were abducted from other countries in Eastern Europe. Ultimately, years later, some children were restored to their parents, but by then many of the younger ones didn’t remember anything beyond their German family. In essence, many loving families were once again ripped apart, making the ordeal that much worse for the children.

4Using Rape And Sterilization To Degrade Women



Over the years, victim interviews, diaries, writings, and eyewitness accounts have uncovered that thousands of Jewish women were raped by SS members during pogroms and in concentration camps. There are also records of at least 10 brothels at concentration camps, where women were forced into prostitution.

Though law prohibited the Aryan SS members from having sexual relations with Jewish women, there are many accounts of just that happening. The brothels, which were condoned by Himmler, were instated as both an incentive for male prisoners to work harder and for the camp guards. Horrific stories have been uncovered and bodies exhumed that provide evidence of women being sexually assaulted and tortured strictly for the pleasure of the SS guards. These assaults were also used as a form of torture, meant to degrade the women and break their spirit.

In addition, there are records that show tens of thousands of women were sterilized in the camps, and many others were forced to have abortions, which left them sterile. For others, the violent assaults left them unable to bear children.

3Biological Warfare



As the Protection Squadron, the SS was expected to provide internal security. Figuring out the most effective ways to wage war and kill was a part of the job, which the SS leadership eagerly took on and explored with fervor. Their efforts included experimenting with biological warfare.

Archived documents show that an entomological research institute was established at the Dachau concentration camp in 1942. There, the Nazis conducted experiments with the end goal of creating biological weapons, even though Hitler had forbade such weaponry. Himmler enlisted the help of Eduard May in testing whether insects like mosquitoes could be used to infect their enemies with malaria. May examined different species to determine which type of mosquito was best suited for the job. He also researched fleas and rats and attempted to pick the brains of plague experts.

Ultimately, May refused to experiment on people and never actually handled infectious diseases. His role appears to have been more of a researcher, tasked with identifying which insects would make the best bioweapons. Luckily, the SS didn’t have the time and resources to carry out their plan.

2Mobile Gas Chambers

As World War II progressed, Germany moved into the Soviet Union. Once they gained ground, the primary role of the SS Einsatzgruppen squads, which translates to “mobile killing units,” was to round up and kill racial and political enemies in controlled Soviet Union territory.

One way that the Einsatzgruppen carried out their mission was with mobile gas chambers. The SS reconfigured the exhaust system of vans so that carbon monoxide would be pumped into the back of the vehicle, where unsuspecting victims sat. The Einsatzgruppen would drive right up to people’s homes, capture them, and kill them as they drove out to a mass grave site, where they dumped the bodies.

These mobile gas vans were used at the first killing facility, Chelmno, at the end of 1941. By 1943, the specially designed death machines were responsible for killing at least 152,000 people. Many experts consider the actions of the Einsatzgruppen to be the first step in the Nazis’ “Final Solution.”

1The Final Solution’s Killing Centers

It’s as ominous as it sounds. The Final Solution was the code name given to the Nazis’ answer to the Jewish question. That “solution” was mass genocide. After years of building hatred and extreme discrimination, the SS leadership decided that such a vile act was the answer.

Little is known about the discussions that happened behind closed doors or how long SS generals had been considering the complete annihilation of the Jewish people. But on July 31, 1941, after Hitler had turned over all security responsibilities to Himmler, SS General Reinhard Heydrich was told to begin preparations for orchestrating and carrying out the horrible deed.

Their plan, to first test their solution in Generalgouvernement, was dubbed “Operation Reinhard.” Here, the SS set up three killing stations that were meant to murder as many Jewish people as quickly as possible. These “death factories,” located in Sobibor, Belzec, and Treblinka, are where the gas chambers were first set up. Within short order, Himmler ordered that a killing center be established at Auschwitz-Birkenau. This is where 1,000,000 Jews met their end. In total, the German SS forces murdered almost 2.7 million Jews at the killing centers, all as a part of their Final Solution.

I could never imagine the horrors that Betty Bausch has witnessed and experienced.

To these horrors I want to repeat the Jewish motto “Never Again!”

96-year-old Betty Bausch travels the world to give testimony on how she evaded the Nazis, and lost her loved ones

The first thing you notice about Betty Bausch are her exquisite blue eyes. They—along with her fearless nature and lots of luck—are what enabled her to survive the Holocaust in Holland

The second thing you notice about her is that she seems much younger than her 96 years. Clear of mind and fully mobile, she didn’t think twice about climbing up on a stool to reach a tea tin in her kitchen cupboard or to search for an old photo album on a high bookshelf when a reporter came to visit her at her apartment in Kfar Saba during Passover.

Bausch fit the interview in as she prepared to leave the next day for a two-month trip to Holland and Germany, where she will speak about her Holocaust experience to many different groups on the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the end of World War II. Even at her advanced age, Bausch makes four to five such trips a year.

“I am one of the very few who can still talk about it. So, when they want me, I have to go,” she said. “But I’ve given up going to the United States at this point.”

What Amsterdam-born Bausch talks to audiences about is how she managed to avoid deportation to a concentration camp by assuming several false identities and moving around German-occupied Holland more than 20 times during the final two and a half years of the war.

“I never had a chance to find out whether I was any good at my jobs as a farmhand, child nurse, housekeeper, cleaner, babysitter, aid to the elderly, housemaid or social worker,” she wrote in the Holocaust memoir she co-wrote with her younger sister Liesje (Elisheva) Auerbach about the different kinds of work she managed to do rather convincingly during the war.

Bausch had acted in some plays when she was in high school, and she put those acting skills to good use.

“In the evenings before I went to bed, I looked in the mirror and worked on not showing any fear on my face,” she recounted.

In the memoir, “Broken Silence,” Bausch’s sister Liesje described her as “full of life and energy, a strong personality who chose her own path in life without allowing other’s opinions to take preference over her own.”

“Perhaps her stubbornness and persistence is what saved her life,” she wrote.

Bausch said that even as a 16-year-old, she paid attention to Hitler’s speeches when he came to power.

“He said that the Jews were the rats of the world and had to be destroyed, and I took his threats seriously even when others didn’t,” she said.

“I told my family the Nazis would never take me.”

Indeed, Bausch was the only member of the Polak family the Nazis did not deport to the Westerbork transit camp and then on to either Sobibor or Bergen-Belsen.

Bausch’s mother and father were killed in Sobibor in 1943, and her older sister Juul died two weeks after liberation in 1945. Her older brother Jaap (Jack) came out of Bergen-Belsen looking like a skeleton, but recovered and lived in America, married to a woman he met in the camps, until his recent death at age 102.

Liesje, the youngest in the family, made it to British Mandate Palestine in July 1944, having been one of 220 Bergen-Belsen prisoners exchanged for the same number of women and children from the German Templar community that had been left behind when the community’s men had left to join the Nazi war effort.

In Jerusalem, she continued the career path she began at the Jewish Hospital in Amsterdam and later in Bergen-Belsen and became the first Dutch woman to graduate from the Hadassah nursing school. Her luck held out once again when, in April 1948, she narrowly avoided being in the convoy of professors, doctors and nurses that was attacked by Arab forces on its way to Mount Scopus. Almost everyone in the convoy was killed.

During the war, Bausch and her husband Philip (Flip) de Leeuw (whom she had married at age 20 in 1939) kept themselves alive thanks to their wits and the extensive connections de Leeuw, a reserve army officer, had in the Dutch Resistance. Early on, the couple, both using false papers, was able to stay together. Later it became too difficult because of Bausch’s ability to pass as a non-Jew and de Leeuw’s looking “too Jewish” to do so.

One might assume that Bausch’s now-white hair was once blond, but it was actually brown.

“I didn’t dye it because I realized that if I were stuck somewhere for some time and my roots began showing before I could color them again, I’d be caught,” she explained.

“But I had blue eyes. My blue eyes saved me,” she said.

In the summer of 1944, the couple was reunited in Bilthoven, and de Leeuw joined the Resistance. Since he had military experience, he was given command of an eight-man combat unit. After a sabotage mission went wrong in November of that year, de Leeuw, Bausch and several others were arrested. They were interrogated at the Bilthoven police station and then at the Wolvenplein prison in Utrecht, where de Leeuw was tortured. Thanks to the help of some sympathetic guards, the husband and wife were able to pass notes between one another and coordinate their stories.

Bausch was taken to SD (Nazi SS intelligence) headquarters in Utrecht and faced interrogation by a notoriously cruel commander. She summoned her best acting skills and managed to make it out of not only the commander’s office, but also out of prison a few days later.

As she was handed her release papers bearing a Nazi stamp, the guard told her, “Make sure never to get involved again with anything illegal, and don’t ever have anything to do with those who are.”

“I thought to myself, if you only knew just how very illegal I am,” she wrote in her memoir.

With great nerve, Bausch returned some time later to the SD headquarters and asked the staff to give de Leeuw a spare pair of glasses she had brought for him. She was told that he was to be killed by a firing squad—which he was, along with five other young men, on November 20 in the woods of Prattenberg on the border between Rhenen and Veenendaal.

“The visit not only proved fruitless, it even heightened the general suspicion under which I was regarded by the Resistance,” she wrote.

“Despite having many good friends in Bilthoven, I turned my back on the place. My acquaintances in the Resistance had cut off any contact, and I too disconnected…Thus began the long period of silence in my life.”

Bausch survived the last half year of the war in hiding in a small city in the west of Holland, and also smuggling food from the eastern part of the country into the starving western part. She rode her bicycle with wooden wheels for hundreds of miles, passing checkpoints and avoiding having her bike confiscated by showing a special permit she finagled from the Nazis by telling them she was a social worker who needed to travel.

“I was such a smooth talker that the Nazis even offered me a job. I thanked them and told them I already had one,” she said.

Despite her having been brought up in a very Zionist home and having been a member of the Mizrahi Orthodox Zionist youth group, Bausch chose not to join her sister in Israel after the war. She remained in Holland, helping to rebuild the country through work she obtained in the Dutch ministry of agriculture in The Hague.

Over the years, Bausch, who worked mainly among men, rose to higher and higher positions in the ministry, breaking the glass ceiling. For many years, however, her personal life was less successful.

“People wouldn’t understand what the war had done to me. I couldn’t talk about it,” she said.

In 1954 she met Dolf Bausch at a conference. He was not Jewish, but he had helped Jews during the war and had worked as an informant for the Allies. He had been sent to a concentration camp, but escaped with the help of an SS man. After the war, the Dutch punished him for having testified on behalf of the German who had saved him.

“We worked in a similar field, he was a bad driver, and he understood me,” Bausch said.

The couple was married in 1961 and Bausch became mother to her new husband’s two sons from a previous marriage. They visited Israel frequently and eventually made aliya in 1981, living half the year in Holland and half the year in a house they built in Eilat.

‘There were people who gave their lives to help me. You have to be open to the needs of others. Don’t wait until they come to you’

Dolf died of kidney disease at age 69 in 1982, leaving Bausch a widow for the second time. She eventually sold the house in Eilat and moved to an apartment in a retirement village in Kfar Saba, not far from where her sister Liesje, now 93, lives. She lives off her Dutch pension, German reparation payments administered through the Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany, and payments from Israel’s Finance Ministry, which were recently greatly increased thanks to help from Aviv (Spring) For Holocaust Survivors, a nonprofit organization that assists survivors in accessing benefits due them.

Having outlived most other survivors who were adults during the Holocaust, the multilingual Bausch feels it is her duty to keep speaking to young people in Israel and abroad. She remained silent until her grandchildren and great-grandchildren (who live in England and Belgium) got her to open up, and now she has vowed to keep talking until she no longer can.

She believes the most important lesson from her Holocaust experience that she can impart to younger generations is the importance of being there for others.

“There were people who gave their lives to help me. You have to be open to the needs of others. Don’t wait until they come to you,” she said.

Argentine archaeologists find secret Nazi lair in jungle

1 Comment

This is from The U. K. Telegraph.

How many Nazi’s ended up in other countries, including America?

Stone structures in the remote region of Misiones are thought to be the ruins of a hideout build by Nazis, in case their leaders needed to flee Germany

A team of Argentine archaeologists investigating a series of ruins in the jungle, close to the border with Paraguay, believe they have discovered a secret Nazi lair.

The cluster of stone structures, now covered by thick vines and accessible only when using a machete to cut through the undergrowth, contain stashes of German coins from the late 1930s, fragments of “Made in Germany” porcelain, and Nazi symbols on the walls.

“We can find no other explanation as to why anyone would build these structures, at such great effort and expense, in a site which at that time was totally inaccessible, away from the local community, with material which is not typical of the regional architecture,” said Daniel Schavelzon, leader of the team.

Mr Schavelzon, from the University of Buenos Aires, spent months exploring the site in the Teyu Cuare provincial park, in the Misiones region of northern Argentina. Local legend told that a house in the forest belonged to Martin Bormann – Hitler’s right-hand-man, who took his own life in May 1945 – but Mr Schavelzon said there was no evidence to support what he called “an urban myth”.

Instead, the buildings were planned as a refuge for the leaders of the Third Reich, commissioned in case they needed to flee Germany.

“Apparently, halfway through the Second World War, the Nazis had a secret project of building shelters for top leaders in the event of defeat – inaccessible sites, in the middle of deserts, in the mountains, on a cliff or in the middle of the jungle like this,” Mr Schavelzon told Argentine newspaper Clarin. He said that his findings were not yet definite, but he was convinced of their veracity.

“This site also has the bonus of allowing the inhabitants to be in Paraguay in less than 10 minutes. It’s a protected, defendable site where they could live quietly.”

Ultimately, though, the hideout wasn’t needed, because after the fall of the Nazi regime their leaders were welcomed to Argentina and allowed to live openly.

Thousands of Nazis, Croatian Ustasha fascists and Italian fascists arrived with the blessing of president Juan Peron, who led the nation from 1946 to 1955 and again briefly in the 1970s. An estimated 5,000 Nazis eventually ended up in Argentina.

In 1960, Nazi Adolf Eichmann, who helped organise the Holocaust, was captured in Buenos Aires by an Israeli commando team and tried in Israel where he was executed. Josef Mengele, whose grotesque experiments on prisoners at Auschwitz earned him the title “Angel of Death”, also fled to Argentina.

“When the war was over some useful Germans helped us build our factories and make the best use of what we had,” said Peron, who died in 1974. “And in time they were able to help themselves too.”


Grand Mufti of Egypt: No Place for Terror in Islam

1 Comment

This is from Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs.

The Grand Mufti of Egypt claims there is no place for terror in Islam.

I guess Muslims associating with the Nazi’s and rabid anti Semitism have no place in Islam.

Islam bringing murder, rape and pedophilia to the world since the days of the Pedophile Mohammed.



The articles come almost daily now: Muslim (and non-Muslim) authorities assuring us that what the Islamic State and other jihad terrorists do — mass murders, beheadings, rapes, destruction — has nothing do with Islam, despite the jihadis’ quotations of the Qur’an and screams of “Allahu akbar.” And every day, mainstream outlets such as Newsweek here are eager to publish them — eager to reassure jittery Infidels that all these dismaying dismays of hatred and violence perpetrated in the name of Islam don’t mean what they seem to mean, and that they need not pressure their political leaders to deal more realistically with the jihad threat.

And so we come to the Grand Mufti of Egypt, telling us that “There’s No Place for Terror in the Teachings of Islam”: that’s the title of this article by Shawki Allam, The Grand Mufti of Egypt, published in Newsweek on March 17, 2015.


The Grand Mufti of Egypt — so august a personage wouldn’t lie to us, would he? Let’s see.

Every Muslim is in utter shock about the senseless, appalling and cowardly attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, and the other senseless violence against innocents we have seen since in Copenhagen and Libya.

Right out of the box — “every Muslim” is in “utter shock” over the Charlie Hebdo jihad massacre? Every one? So those 800,000 Muslims in Chechnya who demonstrated not against the murders, but against the Charlie Hebdo Muhammad cartoons, were shocked and appalled by the murders but decided to protest against the cartoons that led to the murders? And similarly shocked by the murders but not shocked enough to keep from protesting against the cartoons were the tens of thousands of Muslims who demonstrated in Pakistan, and Iran, and elsewhere? Muslims in Niger burned down 45 churches in their rage against the cartoons — were they in utter shock over the cartoonists’ murder as well?

On the other side, meanwhile, how many Muslims displayed their utter shock over the murder of the cartoonists by demonstrating against Sharia blasphemy laws and in favor of the freedom of expression? Why, none. None at all.

Not a good start for the Mufti in terms of giving us an honest presentation, but maybe he will pick up his game.

Let us say it plainly: These horrific acts are a complete violation of Islamic law and norms, and the perpetrators are in no way representative of Muslim people or the religion of Islam.

God upholds the sanctity of life as a universal principle. The Koran states in 4:29: “And do not kill one another, for God is indeed merciful unto you.” Islam views murder as both a crime punishable by law in this world and as a major sin punishable in the Afterlife. As Prophet Muhammad said, “The first cases to be decided among the people on the Day of Judgment will be those of blood-shed.”

You’ll notice that the Mufti omitted a few Qur’an verses that may be pertinent in this context, such as:

2:191-193:  “And slay them wherever you come upon them, and expel them from where they expelled you; persecution is more grievous than slaying….”

4:89: “They wish that you should disbelieve as they disbelieve, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of Allah; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper.”

5:33: “This is the recompense of those who fight against Allah and His Messenger, and hasten about the earth, to do corruption there: they shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall alternately be struck off; or they shall be banished from the land. That is a degradation for them in this world; and in the world to come awaits them a mighty chastisement.”

8:12: “When thy Lord was revealing to the angels, ‘I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers’ hearts terror; so smite above the necks, and smite every finger of them!”

9:5: “Then, when the sacred months are drawn away, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way; Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.”

9:29: “Fight those who believe not in Allah and the Last Day and do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden — such men as practise not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book — until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled.”

9:111: “Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their possessions against the gift of Paradise; they fight in the way of Allah; they kill, and are killed…”

47:4: “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks…”

The Mufti would no doubt say that none of these actually mean that Muslims should kill anyone, and that their plain meaning is not what they really mean at all. Maybe so (although if it is so, there sure are a lot of misunderstanders of Islam among Muslims), but when he presents Qur’an 4:29 as if it were a general principle in Islam, and presents Islam’s prohibition of murder as if it were a blanket condemnation of terrorism without defining either term, it is not unreasonable to ask him how he understands these verses, and what he says to Muslims who think that when they say “kill them wherever you find them” actually means “kill them wherever you find them.” But he doesn’t explain in this article.

This is in keeping as well with Muslim tradition, which rejects terror and violence. This teaching is best shown in the example of the Prophet Muhammad, whose honorable birth was recently celebrated by 1.6 billion Muslims. For Muslims, Prophet Muhammad is the beacon of mercy, the sparkle of compassion, the spring of wisdom and the perfect guide in their journey towards God.

Here is some of that mercy and compassion in stories about Muhammad from Islamic tradition: Muhammad ordered the deaths of Abu Afak, who was over one hundred years old, and the poetess Asma bint Marwan, for making fun of him. Abu Afak was killed in his sleep, in response to Muhammad’s question, “Who will avenge me on this scoundrel?” Similarly, Muhammad on another occasion cried out, “Will no one rid me of this daughter of Marwan?” One of his followers, ‘Umayr ibn Adi, went to her house that night, where he found her sleeping next to her children. The youngest, a nursing babe, was in her arms. But that didn’t stop Umayr from murdering her and the baby as well. Muhammad commended him: “You have done a great service to Allah and His Messenger, Umayr!” (Ibn Ishaq, 674-676)

Then there was Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf. Muhammad asked: “Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?” One of the Muslims, Muhammad bin Maslama, answered, “O Allah’s Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?” When Muhammad said that he would, Muhammad bin Maslama said, “Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab).” Muhammad responded: “You may say it.” Muhammad bin Maslama duly lied to Ka’b, luring him into his trap, and murdered him. (Bukhari 5.59.369)

“A Jewess used to abuse the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and disparage him. A man strangled her till she died. The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) declared that no recompense was payable for her blood.” (Sunan Abu-Dawud 38.4349)

It is therefore ironic and sad that fanatics and extremists have reduced the prophetic example to a set of rituals, crooked projections and warped logic that run counter to the true essence and mission of the Prophet.

They have reduced Islam to slitting throats, burning schools and oppressing women and to killing religious minorities, terrorizing communities and violating the human rights of people in the most blatant manner possible.

Oh no, it’s much more than that. It’s also boasting of Islam’s imminent conquest of Europe and the U.S., and endless whining and claiming victimhood whenever anyone points out that all this is going on.

They ignore the Prophet’s well-documented and indisputable example.

Ask Asma bin Marwan and Ka’b bin al-Ashraf about that.

They fail to comprehend that faith is ultimately about cultivating a relationship with God, one that cannot be complete unless humans abide by the Divine attributes of mercy, compassion and kindness and treat their fellow man accordingly.

Prophet Muhammad was repeatedly subjected to terrible treatment by his enemies but he consistently disregarded these insults and instead took the path of forgiveness, mercy and compassion.

Just one time I’d like to see a Muslim authority who claims this address the stories I quoted above. But it will never happen. There is no way that anyone who is familiar with the Muslim traditions about Muhammad can honestly claim that he was a model of patience, tolerance and compassion. The Mufti is relying on his readers not knowing about those stories and others like them.

This is why he is known to Muslims as “the Mercy to all worlds.” Indeed, this example is most succinctly summarized in the Koran itself, which instructs believers as follows: “The good deed and the evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one which is better.”

He is only mercy to those who become Muslim. Those who do not, he says their lives and property are not safe from him: “I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah, and he who professed it was guaranteed the protection of his property and life on my behalf except for the right affairs rest with Allah.” (Sahih Muslim 30)

There is reform, and there is deception. It is clear from his misleading omissions that the Mufti is engaged in the latter.

Muslims get upset when the pedophile Mohammed is insulted yet Muslims insult and murder Christians.

Muslims desecrate and destroy churches and synagogues and that is fine.

We need to wipe out the Muslims just like we wiped out the Nazi’s..×9&widgetId=2&trackingGroup=69017




In light of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary used it to blast free speech. He did not condemn the attacks, but suggested more laws to ban images of Mohammed.

As Mediaite points out, it is not the first time Choudary dabbled in controversy. He was aspokesman “for al-Muhajiroun, a radical group now banned in England.” He shot to fame in the United States in August when he engaged in a fight with FOX News host Sean Hannity after the Islamic State murdered American journalist James Foley.

“If the Americans bomb and murder hundreds of thousands of people and they torture people and they continue to do so in Guantanamo Bay, obviously this will have repercussions,” he said.

Choudary also told Hannity that “Sharia will be implemented in America, it’s coming,” and “Sharia is coming to a place near you.” A few weeks before the appearance, he admitted the pro-Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) protesters in London were his students. He called them“very good chaps” despite their public support for the terrorist group. In November, hedemanded the British government “return his passport and grant him safe passage to Syria, so that he can see what like is like under Sharia law.”

Abe says statement on 70th anniversary of surrender will express remorse

Leave a comment

This is from The Japan Times.

I doubt the statement will be a true statement of regret.

Japan was never held to the same standard for punishment for war crimes as was the Germans.

The Japs were as brutal as the Nazi’s if not, as in many cases worse.


Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Monday he will express remorse for Japan’s actions in World War II while highlighting the country’s bid to contribute more actively to world peace in his statement marking the 70th anniversary of the war’s end in August.

“I would like to write of Japan’s remorse over the war, its postwar history as a pacifist nation and how it will contribute to the Asia-Pacific region and the world,” Abe said in Ise, Mie Prefecture, during his first news conference of the year.

To mark the anniversary, the government is preparing to craft a new statement, a document that will be closely watched due to the implications it could to have on relations with China and South Korea.

Beijing and Seoul will be paying especially close attention to whether Abe will uphold the 1995 Murayama statement, an apology for Japan’s wartime aggression in Asia, issued by Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama.

On the 50th anniversary of the war’s end on Aug. 15, 1995, Murayama said Japan caused “tremendous damage and suffering” to the people of Asia and other countries through its colonial rule and aggression, and expressed “feelings of deep remorse” and “heartfelt apology.”

The statement is often quoted as the official position of the government on World War II.

Asked if he would uphold the Murayama statement, Abe said his administration “has and will uphold statements issued by past administrations.”

He also said his statement will touch on Japan’s determination to be a proactive contributor to world peace.

Abe’s first news conference of the year was held after he visited Ise Shrine, which is dedicated to the ancestral deities of the Imperial family. Prime ministers in the past have visited the shrine at the beginning of the year.

Abe also reiterated his commitment to beating deflation and reviving the economy by pressing ahead with his “Abenomics” policies.

“We will try to quickly implement the economic stimulus package compiled at the end of last year and make Abenomics bear fruit,” he said.

“I will try to use the regular Diet session (to be convened later this month) to implement various reforms,” Abe said, citing work on national security legislation, regional economies and the empowerment of women.

Earlier Monday, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said in a speech at the prime minister’s office that the adminstration will continue to give top priority to the economy.

“During the regular Diet session, we need to pass various bills while seeking an early passage of the fiscal 2015 budget,” Kono, the top government spokesman, said.

Political parties also marked the start of work in 2015.

Komeito, the junior coalition partner of Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party, held a meeting of its executives in Tokyo.

“It’s the most important event in the first half of this year — a battle to strengthen our party’s cohesion,” Komeito leader Natsuo Yamaguchi said, referring to nationwide local elections scheduled for April.

Speaking at a meeting of the main opposition Democratic Party of Japan, Secretary-General Yukio Edano expressed hope that the party will make big leaps this year in meeting people’s expectations.

“There will be an Upper House election next year, which could turn out to be a double election (also for the Lower House), so whether we can take the next big step depends on this year,” Edano said.

The DPJ is scheduled to hold an election Jan. 18 to pick the successor to Banri Kaieda, who resigned as party president after losing his Lower House seat in the December election.

So far, former DPJ Secretary-General Goshi Hosono, acting party leader Katsuya Okada and former Health, Labor and Welfare Minister Akira Nagatsuma have announced their candidacy for the top slot.

Temple Mount defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti

These Muslim pigs are the people who should be associated with the Nazi’s not Israel.

The Muslims worked with Hitler and the Nazi’s during World War II.


Vandals daub swastikas on floor within compound and equate them with Star of David; police investigating

Police opened an investigation Sunday after graffiti was found in the Temple Mount compound depicting a swastika as the equivalent of a Star of David.


The incident came on the heels of a call by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for Palestinians to defend the Temple Mount, the location of the al-Aqsa mosque and the site of heated clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces over the past several weeks.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said authorities had opened a probe into the incident after finding at least three instances of the graffiti daubed on the floor inside the holy site.

Pictures posted online by the Israeli news portal 0404 showed two different places where the symbols had been painted in blue, one on stairs leading to the Temple Mount and another in an unidentified location.

On Friday, Abbas called for Jews to be barred from the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism and home to a mosque and shrine revered by Muslims as well, and said Palestinians should defend the site.

“It is our sacred place, al-Aqsa [mosque] is ours, this Noble Sanctuary is ours. They have no right to go there and desecrate it,” Abbas said, using the Muslim term for the esplanade, according to Israel Radio.

Abbas was speaking at a conference in the West Bank town of Ramallah after a spate of clashes this week followed a Monday confrontation between Palestinian youths and Israeli police.

He insisted that defending al-Aqsa was tantamount to defending Jerusalem, which the Palestinians are demanding as the capital of their future state.

“Jerusalem is the jewel in the crown and it is the eternal capital of the Palestinian state. Without it, there will not be a state,” he said.

On Saturday, he reiterated the statement, calling Jewish visitors “a herd of cattle.”

Abbas’s speech seemed to echo the sentiments of the Hamas group, which organized a demonstration in Gaza City to call for the defense of the al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and the alleged “threats” posed to the site by Israel.

On Thursday, Hamas leader in exile Mashaal accused Israel of trying to take over al-Aqsa Mosque.

Police and Palestinians have clashed regularly at and near the Temple Mount compound, including on Wednesday, when three policemen were injured during protests against restrictions on Muslim worship at the mosque.

Police used stun grenades as a crowd of about 400 people gathered near the entrance to the mosque, an AFP photographer reported.

Israeli officials banned Muslim men under 50 from the site over the weekend.

On Monday morning, Israel Police forces surrounded the al-Aqsa mosque and entered the plaza atop the Temple Mount after receiving information that Palestinian activists had gathered stones and set barbed wire obstacles in preparation for planned attacks against Jewish visitors to the site.

Upon entering the site, police were met with rocks, firebombs and fireworks, which were hurled at them by the protesters, Israel Radio reported. The rioters were then pushed back into the mosque. Police removed multiple obstacles at the site, including stretches of barbed wire, and it was finally opened to non-Muslim visitors at 7:30 a.m.

The simmering tensions prompted UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to say he was “deeply concerned by repeated provocations at the holy sites in Jerusalem,” which “inflame tensions and must stop.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday blamed “Palestinian extremists” for the repeated clashes at the contested site.

Virginia congressman defends funding Hamas-backed unity government


This is by Paul

F. D. R. would never say he would fight to keep more money going to anyone that supported the Nazis, Japs or Italys Facist.

This is the modern DemocRat party Quislings.


TYSONS CORNER, Va. — In the ongoing battle to deprive Mideast terrorists of financial support, one member of Congress vows he’ll make sure at least one group of violent extremists gets cash from U.S. taxpayers.

U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly, D- Va., defended U.S. funding of the Palestinian Authority, despite the fact that the authority includes members of Hamas, a group the U.S. says is a terror organization.

Connolly’s remarks, at a Sept. 28 Arab American Candidates Night forum, emphasized his determination to fight House of Representatives colleagues who might block the funding.

“When there are voices calling for the defunding of the Palestinian Authority, I oppose them, publicly,” Connolly said. “In fact I signed a letter signed by Congressman David Price of North Carolina, also signed by Jim (Moran DVa.), that said we are not going to defund the Palestinian Authority. That would guarantee an explosion in an already volatile situation. When there was a motion to close the Palestinian Authority office here in Washington or let it just be in New York, I opposed it and said it would be a terrible blow to diplomacy and not in U.S.interest let alone Palestine’s interest.”

“Gerry Connolly’s remarks are very troubling,” said Noah Silverman, Republican Jewish Coalition Congressional Affairs Director. “A vow to support taxpayer funding for a Palestinian government that includes Hamas demonstrates reckless indifference to our ally Israel and a disregard for U.S. law, which forbids aid to such a government.”

Connolly’s Republican challenger in November, Suzanne Scholte, posted the audio clipon her YouTube page of the congressman defending his position.

In a news release Tuesday, she said, “We also need to destroy terrorists not fund them.”

“Sending money to Hamas is reckless and hurts Israel, our closest ally in the Middle East – while destabilizing the entire region by legitimizing a terrorist group with U.S.dollars,” Scholte said in the news release.

During his speech, Connolly also addressed the Egyptian military coup that ousted the Mohammed Morsi-led Muslim Brotherhood government.

“I was the only member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee who spoke out against the Egyptian military after the coup because they overthrew a democratically elected government whether we like it or not.” Connolly said. “Either the United States supports democracy or we don’t. And even though our government may not like the Muslim Brotherhood, I may not like the Muslim Brotherhood, that government did not mow down thousands of their fellow citizens in the streets of Cairo.”

“Defending and tolerating Morsi’s actions shows how radical Connolly has become on foreign policy, said Scholte. “America needs to defend those persecuted in Egypt, not the persecutors.”

In an interview with’s Virginia bureau, Scholte said, “Since being elected to Congress, Gerry Connolly has become more and more out of touch with his constituents while becoming more and more radical in his positions.  It is the reason he stopped having town hall meetings years ago as his extremist views on foreign policy are completely at odds with Northern Virginia, one of the most educated and diverse areas in the nation.”

Connolly’s congressional office and campaign did not respond to phone call and email requests for comment.


5-year-old Christian boy cut in half by ISIS Warning NSFW Photos

This is from World Net Dailey.

This is the fanatical mindset that cost 6 million people their lives at the hands of the Nazi’s during The Holocaust.

The same fanatical mindset  that drove the Japs in the Pacific and in China and the surrounding area like The Rape of Nankig and the Batan Death March.

ISIS needs to be totally destroyed just like the rabid animals they are.


‘This little boy, he was called Andrew’

WARNING: There are some images of purported atrocities against children at the end of this article. They are extremely graphic. Please exercise extreme caution.

The images of atrocities by members of the Islamic State jihadist group, also known as ISIS, against their soldier and civilian enemies in Iraq and Syria have been have circulating for some time. There have been reports, many documented in images and even videos, of ISIS crucifixions, executions, mass burials and worse.

But now a flood of new reports and photographs reveal such horrors being inflicted on children.

One such report came from the Anglican Communion News Service, which said the 5-year-old son of a founder of Baghdad’s Anglican church was “cut in half during an attack by the Islamic State.”

The report cited an emotional Canon Andrew White, chaplain of St George’s Anglican Church in Baghdad.

“I’m almost in tears because I’ve just had somebody in my room whose little child was cut in half,” he said. “I baptized his child in my church in Baghdad. This little boy, they named him after me – he was called Andrew.”

The report said it happened in the Christian village of Qaraqosh after Kurdish forces left and Islamic State fighters arrived.

A report quoted a source, Mark Arabo, a Chaldean-American businessman, confirming the beheading of children by Islamic State fighters, who then “put their heads on a stick and have them in the park.”

“The world hasn’t seen this kind of atrocity in generations,” he told CNN.

The report, which included images, said the terrorists “who have invaded Mosul and other ancient Christian communities in Syria and Iraq have made music videos of themselves murdering civilians and captured soldiers.”

“They are literally enjoying the act of killing and the fear and suffering experienced by others. This sadism may be the purest manifestation of evil witnessed since the Rape of Nanking during WWII.”

Jeff King, president of International Christian Concern, which has staff members traveling in Iraq, has evaluated many of the reports and finds them “completely consistent with who these guys are.”

“They’re absolute barbarians. We’re at a loss of words to describe who these guys are.”

He cautioned, nevertheless, that news agencies and readers always should be a little skeptical of random images posted online, because there’s likely an element of propaganda in such disputes.

Some of the recent images appear that they may have been staged, he said. But others appear genuine.

The Anglican report quoted Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

“The horrific events in Iraq rightly call our attention and sorrow yet again. Christians and other religious minorities are being killed and face terrible suffering,” he said.

“What we are seeing in Iraq violates brutally people’s right to freedom of religion and belief, as set out under Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It is extremely important that aid efforts are supported and that those who have been displaced are able to find safety. I believe that, like France, the United Kingdom’s doors should be open to refugees, as they have been throughout history.”

The aid group Barnabas Aid, which provides assistance to the persecuted church worldwide, reported recently that “hundreds of thousands” of Iraqi Christians are facing a “humanitarian crisis” while fleeing from the terror of Islamic State fighters.

“At least 200,000 Christians are now thought to be fleeing towards the Iraqi Kurdistan region. Some of the displaced had already fled to the Nineveh plain from Mosul, which was taken by ISIS. … A number of towns have reportedly been completely emptied of their Christian populations,” the report said.

The report, which included multiple images, said Islamic State terrorists “have begun their promised killing of Christians in Mosul, and they have started with the children.”

“Several images have emerged of Christian children beheaded by ISIS, merely for being Christian,” the report said.

The report said the Muslim fighters crucified victims “because to them crucifixion is especially humiliating due to its Christian implications.”

The images show children lying in rocky fields where they died, a woman whose throat was cut and the decapitated bodies of children.

A Gospel Coalition “Factchecker” is warning that one of the images reportedly goes back to 2013 when it was claimed she was a Muslim Syrian girl named Fatima Meghlaj who was decapitated when Syrian forces shelled her home.

“ISIS is an organization that has committed heinous acts of violence and violated the human rights of many of our fellow believers,” the organization said. “But we must not partake in the spreading of lies, even if it is against our enemies.”

The report continued: “While it is possible that children are being beheaded by ISIS in Iraq, there is currently no credible evidence to support that claim. We should pray this report turn[s] out to be just rumor and that whatever other crimes are being committed, that God is sparing the children of Iraq from ‘systematic beheading.’”

Bishop Julian Dobbs of Barnabas Aid told WND he’s heard multiple accounts of “atrocities against all Christians, adult and children.”

“This is a disaster of almost unparalleled proportions for Christians,” he said.

The report said the images and videos are made and distributed “to intimidate others.” One showed blood gushing from a woman whose throat was slit. Another was of a “distraught father in Syria” holding the body of his decapitated daughter, who was executed because she was of a Christian family.

WARNING: Following are extremely graphic images, purportedly of atrocities against children by jihadist fighters. Please exercise extreme caution.

Customer finds Nazi symbol on her chicken sandwich

Leave a comment

This is from News Channel 12 ABC WCTI.

What is wrong with someone who does something like this?

Why is it some many of the younger generation looks up to the Nazi’s?

My oldest took a 20 something to task over saying  he admired Adolph Hitler she said Hitler had over six million people murdered.

She asked “Are you special kind of stupid?”.I wonder where she got that?

He looked at her, then looked at me I think he noticed my Glock and walked away.


Customer finds Nazi symbol on her chicken sandwich

MOREHEAD CITY, CARTERET COUNTY A Carteret County mother makes a shocking discovery when she goes to eat her chicken sandwich from a McDonald’s drive-thru in Morehead City. That customer, Charleigh Matice, said when she went to put mayonnaise on her bun she found a swastika etched in butter on it.


Matice said she couldn’t believe someone could possibly do that in this day and time.

“Is this a joke? Does somebody really think they’re funny?,” Matice said.

This anti-Semitic symbol was used by the Nazi party in Germany during the Holocaust. Her grandfather had fought in World War II.  She said the swastika really offended her.

“Many people died because of that symbol and it’s not something that should be taken lightly. It’s not something that should be thrown around,” Matice said.

She said when she went inside the restaurant employees offered to replace it.

“I really didn’t have an appetite at that point so I said I rather have my money back,” Matice said.

However, Matice said even with the money she didn’t feel satisfied. She wants the incident addressed at a larger scale.

“Maybe it needs to be part of training, or maybe brought up more often so that people know that this is not okay,” Matice said.

We contacted McDonald’s corporate office about the incident. They emailed us a statement from the owner of that McDonald’s in Morehead City.

“We are very sorry for the service that our customers received, and to be clear we have terminated the employee who was involved. We do not tolerate that kind of behavior at McDonald’s, and it’s not what we stand for personally as owners. It is about providing the best level of service and care to our customers, and anything less than that is unacceptable to us.”  – Dulcy Purcell, local McDonald’s Owner/Operator in Morehead City, NC

Matice said she’s not upset with McDonald’s anymore.

“I’m a loyal customer and that’s why I don’t want people like that representing them,” Matice said.

She said she plans on eating there again.
