ISIL kills top Iranian commander in Syria – Al Jazeera English

October 9, 2015 5:09 pm
If I come across any materials by a 'terrorist' making announcements that are of value, I'll be sure to share them here with you. I see them grunting and wagging fingers on Arabic media every now and then - it's usually the same-old, same-old ridiculous threats - like characters from a bad horror B movie. By comparison, Osama Bin Laden had more charisma than current terrorist leaders. I pay them so little attention that I don't even know their names properly. They tend to get bumped off every couple of years and a new less distinguishable replacement takes over.

I don't think it was me who wrote about him - I don't even know that much about him. All I know really is that when USA gave Iran the nod to help out against Takfiris in Iraq, before the nuke deal was signed, Hamadani was the Iranian dude who went to Iraq and reversed Takfiri fortunes. I have a friend who's ex military and we have good chinwag analysis sessions every now and then and he often mentions general Hamadani when discussing anti terrorist operations in Iraq.

No further specific information has been released yet. But the dude was a major figure in turning the tables against ISIL/Alqaida in Iraq. It was his military brains that are credited with saving tens of thousands of Iraqis of different faiths from the clutches and swords of Takfiri terrorists. Big blow to the fight against terrorism in Iraq. But the blow, hopefully is recoverable from and speedily. Not good to have a gloating terrorist - it aids recruitment of more terrorists.

It would be awesome if a fluent Arabic speaker would translate the lyrics to this song for us. I tried to find a translation on the net but, alas. And what a beautiful song. Plato's dedicates it to the suffering Palestinians who are today and everyday resisting the merciless violence of the zionist occupation, literally with their bare breasts and sheer will for freedom.

I'm getting it Walid, I'm feeling it - thank you so very much.

Idiot Howard Stern attacks Roger Waters with Zionist Propaganda 101

October 8, 2015 4:01 pm
Here's Why the Palestine Liberation Organization Just Condemned Howard Stern - Business Insider The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) attacked and demanded an apology from radio host Howard Stern on Wednesday, a day after Stern offered a full-throated defense of the Jewish state and lashed out at Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters for supporting boycotts of Israel. Stern was reacting to an open letter sent by Waters to rock star Bon Jovi, who recently played a concert in Israel. Waters offered in the letter his support of the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS), which seeks to wage economic warfare on Israel. “Where do you want the Jews to go, Roger?” Stern exclaimed. “Where do you want them to go? You want them to just go back to the concentration camp? What is it you want, f***head?” The PLO took exception to Stern’s remarks and accused him of supporting genocide against the Palestinians. “The General Delegation of the PLO to the United States strongly condemns the recent inflammatory statements against Palestinians made by radio host, Howard Stern, as well as his shameful attack of human rights activist, Roger Waters,” according to the statement, a copy of which was sent to the Washington Free Beacon. “Mr. Stern’s contention that Palestinians ‘did not live there [Palestine]’ is a claim grounded in racist assumptions that the indigenous Palestinian population does not exist,” claims the organization, which has been held accountable for terror attacks against Jews. “Such baseless allegations only serve to foment violence and hatred, and do little to promote the interests of peace and reconciliation.” The PLO claims that Stern “has a track-record of misusing his national radio platform to espouse vitriolic and genocidal views against Arabs and, in particular, Palestinians.” The statement does not acknowledge the PLO’s own role in promoting and facilitating deadly terror acts against Israel. “We will not allow anyone, including Mr. Stern, to disseminate misguided, racist, or genocidal views into the public sphere without being held to account,” the PLO writes. “The General Delegation of the PLO to the United States calls on Mr. Stern to retract both current and past statements and issue an immediate apology, and urges Sirius XM Radio, who we are confident does not condone such views, to hold Mr. Stern responsible.” Here's why the Palestine Liberation Organization just condemned Howard Stern - Business Insider

Some stuff about America is very embarrassing. Like people who are a combination of loud-mouth, arrogant and nouveau-riche. A lotta people like that are in the entertainment industry. Usually the talentless and non-artistic ones. Yeah it's depressing that scumsters like that resonate with the populace. We need a culture revolution, not a cultural revolution.

That's definitely not gonna happen here, Jay. I appreciate your concern. though. I hope you understand that my publishing a comment by a blogger does not necessarily mean I agree with it. Take yourself, for instance: sometimes I agree with you and other times I don't, nevertheless I still publish your comment.

Fascinating bits of information, Walid. Actually I know Sarafand quite well - my favorite seaside fish restaurant is there: 'Mermaid of Sarafand'. BTW, I don't purposely seek out to walk in the path of ancient prophets - my dogs are unleashed so I have to take them for walks on hills where populations don't tread, and only the occasional shepherd and his flock are encountered. Plenty of hills like that in south Lebanon.
