The Palestinians may be turning to the international courts to advance their bid for statehood, but they have lost a first battle in the US courts that could cost them dearly.
Monday’s US ruling was hailed by Israel as a “moral victory”, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying it showed the “hypocrisy” of the Palestinian attempt to join the International Criminal Court to sue Israel for alleged war crimes.

“The Special Rapporteur notes that, according to universally accepted international standards, the right to freedom of religion or belief includes the right to adopt a religion of one’s choice, the right to change religion and the right to maintain a religion. She also notes that these aspects of the right to freedom of religion or belief have an absolute character and are not subject to any limitation whatsoever. […]
Since the choice of religion or belief is part of the forum internum, which allows for no limitations, a general prohibition of conversion by a state necessarily enters into conflict with applicable international standards. A law prohibiting conversion would constitute a state policy aiming at influencing individuals’ desire to have or adopt a religion or belief and is therefore not acceptable under human rights law.”

“And let us say again tonight that these people in Iraq and Syria doing these appalling things, they have nothing to do with the great religion of Islam, a religion of peace, a religion that inspires daily acts of kindness and generosity.” – David Cameron, Eid speech 8th October 2014.
“One belief, more than any other, is responsible for the slaughter of individuals on the altars of the great historical ideals – justice or progress or the happiness of future generations, or the sacred mission or emancipation of a nation or race or class, or even liberty itself, which demands the sacrifice of individuals for the freedom of society. This is the belief that somewhere, in the past or in the future, in divine revelation or in the mind of an individual thinker, in the pronouncements of history or science, or in the simple heart of an uncorrupted good man, there is a final solution.”
Berlin, Isaiah (2012-12-31). The Proper Study Of Mankind: An Anthology of Essays (p. 237). Random House. Kindle Edition.
Politicians have spent years telling us that multiculturalism is the final solution to the question of how human beings ought to live. Not one of them has the decency to acknowledge the murders that have been committed in its name. History teaches us that when an elite group believe they have discovered a final solution, they will sacrifice anyone in an attempt to make their final solution a reality. The social engineers who have inflicted the poison of multiculturalism upon us are no different in this regard. The French Jews and cartoonists who died at the hands of the Kouachi brothers in Paris on 7th January 2015 are the latest people to die in the name of that evil doctrine.
One of the foundational premises of multiculturalism is the claim that all cultures and values are compatible. Obviously, this is false. As the political philosopher Isaiah Berlin once said:
“… it seems to me that the belief that some single formula can in principle be found whereby all the diverse ends of men can be harmoniously realised is demonstrably false. If, as I believe, the ends of men are many, and not all of them are in principle compatible with each other, then the possibility of conflict – and of tragedy – can never wholly be eliminated from human life, either personal or social. The necessity of choosing between absolute claims is then an inescapable characteristic of the human condition.”

The traitor class have decided that Britain must be culturally enriched and turned into a multicultural paradise. So all criticism of Islamic doctrines and practices has been declared verboten. This has allowed the traitor class to use the religion of Islam as a targeting sytem so they can identify individuals with the moral backbone and intellectual integrity to defend Britain’s traditional Judeo-Christian values. In Great Britian today, if you speak up and state the most obvious and inescapable facts: Britain is a Christian country, our traditional values are based not on Islam but on Judeo-Christianity, Britain is not and has never been an Islamic country, and Islamic doctrines and practices are incompatible with British values and with human rights legislation (just read the USCIRF reports on the human rights abuses that happen year in and year out in the Islamic world), then you have the potential to threaten the legitimacy of the traitor class. And once you have spoken up, they know who you are.
Woe betide anyone who questions ‘politically correct’ dogma. The traitor class see anyone who speaks the truth as their enemies, and they will go to any lengths to destroy them. We need to realise that we are not dealing with rational, morally sane people here. The traitor class are capable of absolutely anything.
Isaiah Berlin understood that not all human values are compatible with one another and different values will inevitably clash at the level of civilisations, cultures, groups and individuals. The very notion that there is a final solution to the question of how people ought to live together is incoherent, since values and doctrines conflict in this way. Nowhere is this conflict felt more keenly than in the area of religion.
The doctrines of Islam, for instance, are incompatible with the doctrines of Mormonism because they claim that Mohammed was the last prophet and if that is true, then Joseph Smith and every Mormon prophet who came after him were not prophets at all, and every word they wrote was a lie. The doctrines of Islam are also incompatible with those of mainstream Christianity because Islam denies the crucifixion, denies the resurrection and denies the divinity of Jesus. The idea that all religions are the same is an intellectual error of the first magnitude. You cannot possibly believe in different religions, you can only believe in one.
This is heresy to the traitor class, but it is the truth. Having the freedom to make informed choices about religious matters is one of the necessary conditions of living an authentic life.
“He who lets the world, or his own portion of it, choose his plan of life for him, has no need of any other faculty than the ape-like one of imitation. He who chooses his plan for himself, employs all his faculties. He must use observation to see, reasoning and judgment to foresee, activity to gather materials for decision, discrimination to decide, and when he has decided, firmness and self-control to hold to his deliberate decision.”
Mill, John Stuart (2006-08-31). On Liberty and the Subjection of Women (Penguin Classics) (p. 67). Penguin UK. Kindle Edition.
The traditional conservative understanding of the world was built on the realisation that only by establishing a political system which recognises and honours the God-given liberties of each individual human being can we all live a normal, authentic life. The traitor class are doing everything in their power to destroy these ideas and bring us all into a condition of spiritual slavery, where we accept incoherent lies as truth and bend the knee to an all powerful state.
The traitor class have already created a system that allows them to target potential dissenters, restrict free speech and increase the reach and power of the state, and we all know they will never give back what they have taken. In the future, not only will they try to stop individuals from discovering the truth about different religions, thereby preventing them from making informed choices about their own religious beliefs, they will actively persecute individuals who choose to become Christians.
Here’s why: The prince of the power of the air, as Satan is referred to in the Bible, may have thought that by corrupting the world he would be setting an insoluble problem before his Creator. If God did not punish men and women who gave themselves over to evil, then the universe would not be just. And if the universe was not just, then God would have no grounds for punishing Satan for what he has done. That’s the name of the game here, in case anyone was wondering. But God manoeuvred the scales of justice into eternal alignment when He allowed the Roman Empire to crucify his Son. Punishment had to be meted out for all the evil acts commmitted in this world, and it was. If you accept that sacrifice then you can wake up, acknowledge that you are a free, rational being, and become a true spiritual warrior. No other religion gives you the power or the freedom to do this. Islamic doctrines, for example, teach that Christ was not the Son of God, that He was not crucified, and that He was not resurrected. That leaves you adrift on the Satanic swells that roll over this earth, with no means whatsoever of setting your feet upon sure ground.
That is precisely where the traitor class want you to be. It doesn’t matter if they call their final solution communism, national socialism or multiculturalism. By using the power of the state to prevent you from finding out the truth about Islam, they are denying you the right to make an informed decision about which set of religious beliefs, if any, you believe to be true. The traitor class want to make sure you do not live in accordance with your own lights and cannot assign meaning to your own life. They want to take everything from you, right up to and including your innermost thoughts. They want to leave you naked, sliced open and dead inside, with no other option but to worship …. them.
That, my friends, is the mark of evil.
Looks like there’s been another terrorist incident, in Belgium this time. The local fuzz have whacked a couple of jihadists & sent them on their way to the burny place. Here’s the link.
I’m tired of hearing that not all Muslims are terrorists or jihadists. That may be true, but it’s also irrelevant.
When Islamic terrorists in the Gaza strip launch Kassam rockets at civilians in Israel, the Iron Dome defensive missile system tracks it and launches a counter-missile which destroys it before it lands. We need to develop our own Iron Dome defensive system so that we can neutralise incoming rockets before they do any damage. In this case, it is easily done.
Let’s think about this logically: It may be true to say that not all cats have marmalade coloured fur, but that doesn’t mean there are no marmalade coloured cats, or that there isn’t one wandering around Chartwell right now, in accordance with Churchill’s wishes. As anyone can see by visiting Chartwell’s page on the National Trust website, Jock VI is a real cat. He exists, and there are others like him.
Anyone willing to accept that Jock VI is living at Chartwell can construct an Iron Dome defensive system capable of taking out this particular Kassam, and they can activate that system as soon as an incoming rocket appears on the horizon.
As we can see from the square of opposition, the A proposition “All Muslims are terrorists” is a contradictory of the O proposition “Some Muslims are not terrorists”. What this means is that both propositions cannot be true at the same time, and both propositions cannot be false. So if the A proposition “All Muslims are terrorists” is false, then the O proposition “Some Muslims are not terrorists” must be true.
Now, if someone says that not all Muslims are terrorists, they are asserting that, where the subject term is “Muslims” and the predicate term is “terrorists”, the A proposition (All S are P) is false. What are we to make of this?
The intellectual terrorists who fire this Kassam rocket want to kill any serious enquiry into the nature of Islamic terrorism. However, we can shoot down this particular rocket by reminding ourselves that if that A proposition is false, all that means is that the O proposition (Some S are not P) is true: Some Muslims are not terrorists.
What we need to understand is that even if that O proposition is true, this does not refute the assertion that some Muslims are terrorists. If we take that logical point on board, then we will be able to shoot that Kassam rocket down, and the I proposition ‘some Muslims are terrorists’, where the subject term is not distributed, will remain untouched.
So if you switch on the TV and see Muslims killing an unarmed British soldier on the streets of London, or shooting kids outside a school in Toulouse, or killing a soldier in Ottowa, or murdering people in their Paris office for drawing some pictures they didn’t like, you can believe your own eyes. People are dying in terrorist attacks all around the world, and radical Muslims are doing the killing.
After the next Islamic terrorist attack, if anyone tells you that the perpetrators could not have been Muslims because “not all Muslims are terrorists” then fire up your Iron Dome and blow that Kassam rocket clean out of the sky.
