(News and photos direct from DAILY NEWS EGYPT and BNI on Dec 30, 2013.)

CAIRO: Four journalists working for Al Jazeera were detained in Cairo on Sunday night on charges of publishing information “harmful to national security” and meeting with the recently-banned Muslim Brotherhood.  

The arrests are the latest event in a series of government crackdowns against press freedom, which have led to numerous arrests, detentions, closure of news outlets, and even deaths.  The Committee to Protect Journalists reported that six journalists were killed while working in Egypt this year.

A Ministry of Interior (MOI) spokesman confirmed that two journalists were arrested at the Marriott Hotel in Zamalek where the Al Jazeera news team was using two suites as a temporary base of operation.

UAE Changes Chess Pieces Of International Tournament

A King piece sans the cross.
The left politicizes everything. Islam Islamizes everything. Muslim Country Hosts Chess Tournament, Islamizes the Chess Pieces.

Traditional chess kings have a cross on the top (a design that has been in use for centuries). But this year in the UAE, they’ve removed the cross and replaced it with an Islamic crescent. A veteran chess player tells me: “In my entire life playing chess I have never seen such a thing.”

There’s a basic undercurrent of intolerance to the obsessive need to remake everything in your own image and destroy what is not yours in a fit of xenophobia.

Singapore Caps Muslim Numbers At 15% Last 50 Years

A legal marriage of a Bengali-Muslim man
and a Burmese-Buddhist woman in Burma.
(She was force-converted to Islam later.)
Republic of Singapore was established in 1965. Back then in 1965 Singapore had approximately 75% Chinese Buddhists and 15% Malay Muslims. Can anyone guess what the population ratio of Muslims in 2013 Singapore is after almost 50 long years?

Same 15%. Yes, believe it or not, the Muslim numbers is still measly fifteen percents out of total 5.4 million cosmopolitan Singaporeans. How do they do that for last fifty years without harming a single Muslim and without receiving a single human-rights violation complaint from that notorious Multinational Muslim Mafia OIC?

Simple, the Chinese-Buddhist-dominated Singaporean Government uses two pronged approach of (1) strict non-immigration policy for Muslims and (2) strict legal prohibition of interfaith-marriages between Muslim men and non-Muslim women in Singapore. Yes, you read it right, in Singapore no Muslim male is allowed to marry a non-Muslim female, period.

Reliving 1973 Kachin Christmas Eve in New York City

(Re-post of my "Reliving 1973 Kachin Christmas Eve in New York City" from 2011.)

New York City's Skyline.
The Big Apple or the New York City is a wholesomely overwhelming town for a simple jungle boy like me. Especially the enormous Romanesque facades of century old skyscrapers. And it hurts my neck so much that I’ve stopped trying to look up at their distinctive tops.

Like many other wide-eyed tourists from the Australian fringe of the mighty empire of USA I ended up wandering on the wide avenues leading to the Times Square brightly lit and filled to the rims by the excited crowd on the Christmas Eve.

I walked and walked and walked aimlessly on the near-zero freezing but still unbelievably crowded Fifth Avenue and ended up, fortunately of course as I wasn’t really looking for it, right in front of a beautifully grand Gothic-revival church. I walked in and realized this is the historic St.Patrick’s Cathedral   and the traditional Midnight Mass was just a few hours away.

Directional Drilling & Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking)

Oil and natural gas deposits are found throughout the world in underground formations, such as sandstone, carbonates, coal and shale. Gaining access to these deposits involves drilling vertical, horizontal or multilateral wells to the target formation.

Various completion techniques, such as hydraulic fracturing, are then used to create an effective connection between the well and the targeted hydrocarbon-containing formation, thereby providing a pathway for the oil or gas to be produced.

Before drilling a well, our geologists and engineers complete a full analysis of the geology using proprietary and public data. They assess results from other wells drilled in the vicinity, including water wells, producing oil and gas wells and nonproducing wells (dry wells).

Muslims In Toronto Belittling Jesus On Christmas Eve

Jesus is No God – Says a Canadian Islamic Charity. “Is Jesus God?” A billboard posted at Dundas Subway Station in Toronto asks. The screaming poster’s words answer: “Bible & Quran say NO” further instructing the reader: “Discover the Truth.”

CoollectFreeQuran, a Canadian registered charity, sponsors the poster and calls for contributions of $600 per month, or $150 per week, or $20 per day to maintain the poster. This ad and the facebook plea would have made Vladimir Ilyich Lenin proud: While belittling the core of Christian belief, this Muslim “charity” is soliciting Christian funds to destroy it.

This is but one of recent examples of how blatantly Islamic organizations are advancing their agenda of global Islamic rule.

Jonathan D. Halevi, a Senior Fellow at ACD calls our attention to a new Islamic street ad in Toronto regards Jesus as a Muslim Prophet and implies his future role in ridding the world of evil and establishing the rule of Islam globally.

Irrawaddy Dwindling: Delta Losing Land To Rising Sea

(News article and photo direct from the Eleven Media on December 17, 2013.)

Irrawaddy River and the Delta.
Our great river Irrawaddy is flowing sluggish and thus carrying down fewer tons of silt downstream every year and the disturbing result is clearly seen in the Delta for well over two decades. Our seemingly ever-expanding Irrawaddy Delta has stopped expanding and even losing average five square-miles per year to the rising sea since 1990.

According to Professor Maung Maung Aye the Riverine Geological Expert holding a seminar at the “Public Forum for Strategic Environmental Valuation of Irrawaddy River Basin” held at Rangoon University’s Judson (Yuu-da-than) Centre, Irrawaddy Delata is losing 13 Sq-Km (5 Sq-miles) a year average from the dual causes of lower flow from Irrawaddy and rising sea level in the Gulf of Martaban (Moat-ta-ma).

According to Professor Maung Maung Aye his intensive studies of Irrawaddy Basin and the Delta shows that between 1925 and 1989 Irrawaddy had had a high rate of silt delivery to the Delta and the result is 8.7 Square Km per year average creation of new land in the Delta. But after 1990 till 2006 the rate of silt delivery from the dwindling Irrawaddy slowed down substantially while soil erosion from the rising sea level had accelerated.

Prince Charles: Islamist Militants Are Killing Christians

Christianity beginning 'to disappear' in its birthplace, warns Prince of Wales. Prince of Wales delivers impassioned personal plea for Christians in the Middle East, warning ‘organised persecution’ by Islamist fundamentalists could sever 2,000-year link.

Christianity is beginning “to disappear” in its own birthplace after 2,000 years because of a wave of “organised persecution” across the Middle East, the Prince of Wales has warned.

In an impassioned intervention, he said that the world is in danger of losing something “irreplaceably precious” with communities tracing their history back to the time of Jesus now under threat from fundamentalist Islamist militants.

Speaking openly of his own Christian faith, he said he had become “deeply troubled” by the plight of those he described as his “brothers and sisters in Christ”. Prince Charles accompanied by Prince Ghazi bin Mohammad of Jordan (2nd right) during the visit, celebrating Christian communities from the Middle-East in Britain.

Female Genital Mutilations In United States of America

(News articles and photos direct from The CLARION PROJECT site.)

Backyard FGM of a very young girl.
The barbaric practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) sometimes referred to euphemistically as Female Genital Cutting (FGC) or Female Circumcision widely practiced by the Muslims worldwide is strictly prohibited by law in the U. S. and many Western countries.  

But many Muslim communities in both US and UK have been brutally cutting the genitals off their young females and infant girls against the law and acceptable culture in a western democracy.

Following two articles are from the Clarion Project’s internet site of that widespread practice of Female Genital Mutilation in United States of America the land of the free and advanced liberal democracy.

Shin Wirathu: Suu Kyi Presidency Will Be Bad For Burma

Irrawaddy telephoned nationalist Buddhist monk Shin Wirathu at New-Masoeyein Teaching Monastery in Mandalay yesterday and asked him directly about the recent news of him preaching all over Burma that NLD Chairman Aung San Suu Kyi should not be the president of Burma after 2015 General Elections.

In following phone interview Shin Wirathu explained to Irrawaddy’s Sanay Lin that he was basically preaching for the protection of Burmese Race and Buddhist Religion and not explicitly about whether Suu Kyi should not become the president in 2015.

“If Daw Suu’s late husband were a Burmese national she wouldn’t be facing the problems she is now. Past military governments wouldn’t be able to attack her on that point and she also wouldn’t need to fight to amend the 59-F like she is doing all over now,”  said Shin Wirathu.

Sharia Law Comes To (not so Great anymore) Britain

LONDON -- Stoning for adultery. Amputations for theft. Death for apostates. And second-class status for Christians and Jews. This is life under Sharia law, the Islamic system practiced in countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Great Britain.

Yes, Great Britain. There are reportedly some 85 Sharia courts now operating there, with Islamic judges ruling on cases ranging from financial to marital disputes among British Muslims.

"We went into some proceedings and there were a couple of Islamic judges sitting up above the rest," said Alan Craig, who recently stepped down as leader of the Christian Peoples Alliance party. "And there was one Muslim woman who was suing for divorce."

A Letter to Paul Wolfowitz From Andrew J. Bacevich

Dear Paul,

Former Deputy Defense Secre.
Paul Wolfowitz.
I have been meaning to write to you for some time, and the tenth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq war provides as good an occasion as any to do so. Distracted by other, more recent eruptions of violence, the country has all but forgotten the war. But I won’t and I expect you can’t, although our reasons for remembering may differ.

Twenty years ago, you became dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and hired me as a minor staff functionary. I never thanked you properly. I needed that job. Included in the benefits package was the chance to hobnob with luminaries who gathered at SAIS every few weeks to join Zbigniew Brzezinski for an off-the-record discussion of foreign policy. From five years of listening to these insiders pontificate, I drew one conclusion: people said to be smart — the ones with fancy résumés who get their op-eds published in the New York Times and appear on TV — really aren’t. They excel mostly in recycling bromides. When it came to sustenance, the sandwiches were superior to the chitchat.

Sodomy For Jihadis: Sheik Abdallah Al-Khilaf 's Fatwa

(News article and videos from BNI and NATIONAL REVIEW  on December 15, 2013.)

Sheik Abdallah Al-Khilaf.
Now, at first I thought this was a hoax. But it appears it isn’t. Apparently an Islamist fellow writing into a Jihadi chat show wants to do “martyrdom operations.” The sheikh he talked to says they’ve got a great new technique to blow up infidels. We hide explosives up your butt.

There’s just one hitch. You’ve got to be repeatedly sodomized in order to be able to accommodate the explosive. So, the questioner wants to know if it is permissible for him to be regularly buggered, if doing so makes his posterior more amenable to hiding explosives.

The fellow on camera, Shiite cleric Abdallah Al-Khilaf, says that even though sodomy is forbidden if it is necessary for jihad, well, then it is required. Because jihad is the highest obligation.

Dong Feng 21D: China’s Aircraft-carrier-Killer Missiles?

Xinhua Illustration of a Dong Feng destroying
USS George Washington in the Pacific.
In the history of warfare, there have been numerous weapons described as “game changers” that promised to nullify the dominant weapons of the day. Stone castles fell prey to gunpowder. Integrated air defenses were overcome by stealth.

Sometimes new weapons brought tremendous advantages, but they have often proved short-lived, as countermeasures—in the form of defensive weapons or tactics—have always arisen to blunt the effect of the new technology.

Today, some are predicting the demise of the aircraft carrier— a potent tool of American power projection for more than 90 years—at the hands of China’s DF-21D anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM), widely labeled the “carrier killer.”

Nationalist Monk Shin Wirathu Preaching in Rangoon

Buddhist nationalist monk Shin Wirathu is now in Rangoon for his weeklong preaching tour. At 8:30 pm on December-12 he delivered a sermon to a large audience in No-31 Ward of Dagon-Myothit-North Township.

The occasion was the very first special-Dammha-ceremony for the Ward and our Shin Wirathu delivered there a sermon titled “Attaining the ability to properly wash the blood off a blood-stained hand” to more than 900 strong Buddhist audience.

He has been in Rangoon, the biggest Burmese city with more than half-a-million Muslims, since December-11 but he hasn’t announced yet the date he will be going back to his New-Masoeyein Teaching Monastery in Mandalaly the second largest city about 500 miles away from Rangoon.

Sex Segregation In UK Universities: Gender Apartheid?

              (Part of this post is direct from the Daily telegraph on December 11, 2013.)

Radical Muslims in UK have now achieved their first aim towards Islamizing the Great Britain. Universities UK (UUK), the organisation which represents vice-chancellors, has directed all British universities to allow the forced segregation of females from male students in university campuses.

What next after the universities? Movie theatres, swimming pools, gyms, trains, ............, the opportunities for Sex Segregation or Gender Apartheid are boundless for Islamist radicals who called themselves British, but they really are the descendants of Muslim immigrants from backward Islamic countries.

But the British liberals and Socialists who usually pander and cow down to the Islamists are now fighting back as they suddenly see the reality of England being Islamized rapidly at such alarming rate. Even the normally pro-Muslim and left-wing “Equality and Human Rights Commission” is now reviewing the legal position of UUK’s guidelines to establish whether they break any British law.

Obama Flirting With Hot Danish PM At Mandela's Funeral

“Flirty Obama owes us an apology” wrote Andrea Peyser of New York Post. Maybe he went into sugar shock over a Danish pastry.

The president of the United States, leader of the free world, standard-bearer for everything upright, good and wholesome about the nation he leads, lost his morality, his dignity and his mind, using the solemn occasion of Nelson Mandela’s memorial service Tuesday to act like a hormone-ravaged frat boy on a road trip to a strip bar.

In front of 91 world leaders, the mourning nation of South Africa and Obama’s clearly furious wife, Michelle, the president flirted, giggled, whispered like a recalcitrant child and made a damn fool of himself at first sight of Denmark’s voluptuously curvy and married prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

SEA Games Back In Burma: Lavish Opening Ceremony

(Article and photos from Channel News Asia and SEA Games on December 11, 2013.)

Opening ceremony fireworks lighting up the stadium.
NAYPYIDAW, Myanmar - Myanmar staged a lavish spectacle of lights and pyrotechnics at the opening ceremony for the Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) on Wednesday, as the impoverished and formerly reclusive state displayed a dazzling face to the world.

Fireworks exploded above the 30,000-seat, purpose-built Wunna Theikdi stadium and a series of screens beamed a dramatic lights show during the Chinese-backed extravaganza in the country's capital Naypyidaw.

The 22-day SEA Games, featuring Olympic staples like athletics alongside traditional sports like chinlone, is seen as a coming-out party for Myanmar two years after the end of military rule. Domestic pop stars and massed ranks of dancers entertained the crowd, which burst into chants of "Myanmar, Myanmar!" when President Thein Sein entered the stadium under a flurry of fireworks.

Islam and Sharia Will Be Illegal Soon in Tennessee, USA

Hotly debated mosque constructions Tennessee.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee is considering making it a felony to follow some versions of the Islamic code known as Shariah, the most severe measure yet put forth by a national movement whose members believe extremist Muslims want Shariah to supersede the Constitution.

The bill - drawn up by conservatives with ties to opponents of a planned Islamic center two blocks from New York City's ground zero and efforts to expand a mosque 30 miles southeast of Nashville - would face steep constitutional hurdles if enacted.

Nevertheless, it represents the boldest legislative attempt yet to limit how Muslims worship. Muslim groups fear the measure would outlaw central tenets of Islam, such as praying five times a day toward Mecca, abstaining from alcohol or fasting for Ramadan.

Anti-Chinese Muslim Riot in Singapore’s Little India

Bangladeshi and Indian Muslim rioters attacking police.
Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has ordered an inquiry into Singapore’s first riot in four decades as tensions rise over the reliance on foreign workers in the city state.

“There is no excuse for such violent and criminal behavior,” Lee said in a statement today. A Committee of Inquiry will look into the reasons for the riot and how it was handled, and review how the government manages areas where foreign workers congregate, he said.

The riot, which broke out last night in the Little India district after a traffic accident, involved about 400 people, the police force said in a statement on its Facebook page today.

Boat-Muslims Groping Young Girls In Sydney Children Pool

AN Afghan asylum seeker who has been in Australia for less than six months has had his bridging visa revoked after being accused of groping a group of teenage girls at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre.

Mohammad Salem Nazari, 33, is accused of indecently assaulting seven girls in the Rapid River Ride whirlpool at the popular swimming pool in a 25-minute period after 4pm on Sunday.

Nazari, who was living in a Parramatta unit and is from the Hazara ethnic group in Afghanistan, is the 31st asylum seeker facing criminal charges to have his bridging visa cancelled under tough new rules announced by the Coalition government in October.

Greenspan: Write-off U.S. Treasury’s Trillion Dollars Debt!

In his one-to-one interview with Fareed Zakaria on CNN’s GPS show on last Sunday December-8 former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan has stated a brilliant solution to unwind Federal Reserve’s enormously-inflated balance sheetthe Federal Reserve’s  confounding and fancy-sounding term for the trillions of US$ created (printed) out of thin air by US Federal Reserve to purchase the trillion dollars worth of securities from US Treasury.

What he said in that CNN interview, I believe, was that the Federal Reserve could simply write off the trillion dollars debt owed by US Treasury to US Federal Reserve in just one weekend without any financial consequences, if (That is a very big IF) it were not for psychological factors affecting the financial markets.   

Writing-off the humongous debt of more than 2 trillion US$ with no consequence as it is strictly a bookkeeping entry! I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard him on TV. Is he suggesting United States to cook her books, seriously? May God save us poor souls!

Confounding Fathers: The Tea Party’s Cold War Roots

US radio ahock-jock Glenn Beck
A few months ago, the cable-television and radio host Glenn Beck began his Fox News show with one of his favorite props: a pipe clenched between his teeth. “I’ve got my pipe,” he told his audience, his speech slightly muddled by the stem, “because we’re going to speak about schoolish kind of things.”

The theme of the day was “Restoring History,” and Beck, looking professorial in a neat dark blazer and a pink button-down shirt, began the lesson by peering at a stack of history textbooks and pronouncing them full of falsehoods, produced by “malicious progressive intent.”

Progressives, he explained—liberals, socialists, Communists, the entire spectrum of the left—“knew they had to separate us from our history to be able to separate us from our Constitution and God.”

For the next hour, Beck earnestly explained some of the history that “is being stolen from us”: the depression of 1920, for example, or how conservative economics saved the nation from the “near-depression” of 1946—crises that progressives don’t want you to know about. “You’ve been taught one lie, I think, your whole life,” he said.

Al-Qaeda-Linked Islamists Ban Women Soccer In Libya

(News articles and photos direct from the Guardian & Global Post & Bloomberg.)

Head-to-toe-covered Muslim women soccer players.
Libya says women's soccer team can't play tournament due to Ramadan as national women's soccer team rapidly becoming a lightning rod for religious extremists in Libya.

Saying it cannot allow its national women’s soccer team to play during Ramadan, Libya has withdrawn from an important international tournament in Germany this weekend. Given that the team has attracted unwanted attention from religious extremists that might only be a half-truth.

The Libyan Soccer federation isn’t allowing the women to play because during the holy month Muslims are supposed to fast from early dawn to sunset. “The federation said you cannot play in Germany because of the need for fasting,” midfielder Hadhoum el-Alabed told the Guardian. “We want to go but they say you cannot go.”

Illegal Bengali-Muslims’ Beach-head West of Sittwe

(News article and photos direct from Coral Arakan on November 29, 2013.)

New Muslim arrivals from Bangladesh?
Illegal Bengali-Muslims are now coming direct to Sittwe Township in Arakan from Bangladesh by boats. They have been building Bengali villages clandestinely on the shore just a few miles from Sittwe the capital of Yakhine State formerly known as Arakan.

Recently they have built two Bengali-Muslim villages bearing the names of their original villages in Bangladesh’s Taknaf district. Khan-bouk and Maw-chaw-karli. Now Maw-chaw-karli Muslim village already has more than 150 Muslim households within just one year of its establishment.

Their landing point or beach-head is at just half-a-mile from Pa-lin-byin Yakhine-Buddhist village at the west of Sittwe. That beach-site originally was a prawn-breeding farm owned by a Yakhine-Buddhist businessman from Sittwe.

Burma’s Yaba Addicts (2): Soe Myat Thu Zar’s Confession

Soe Myat Thuzar the Princess of Ads.
In year 2008 Soe Myat Thu Zar was the top-earning movie actress famously dubbed as The Princess of Ads for her ubiquitous billboard and full-page magazine advertisements all over Burma. She became addicted to Yaba pills and notorious in the movie industry in late 2000s.

In April 2008 she was taken in for a long and torturous interrogation in Rangoon by Burma Police’s Special Narcotic Squad officers. There in an interrogation room inside Rangoon-East Narcotic offices she eventually confessed of her serious Yaba addiction to two police officers, one was the most senior female officer.

Following is the translated original transcript of her confession to the narcotic-suppression police on April 30, 2008. The transcript was leaked on a Face Book account of a former senior Burmese army officer who was abruptly dismissed recently from the army after the top brass discovered he was a closet-Muslim holding a hidden hatred against Burmese Buddhists.

Angry Muslims Protest At Angola’s London Embassy

(News article and photos direct from The Demotix and The BNI on November 29, 2013.)

Liberated Muslim women protesting at Angola Embassy.
LONDON: Angry Muslims (are there any other kind?) protest Angola’s ban on Islam.

Anjem Choudary, notorious Muslim hate preacher, and his supporters protested at the Angolan Embassy against the ban on Islam imposed there, with the closing of mosques outside the capital, burning of copies of the quran and assaults on veiled women.

There was no sign of the march announced by Anjem Choudary from the Regents Park Mosque after Friday prayers although I spent some time looking for it, but by the time I had walked down from there to the Angolan Embassy, a group of around forty of his supporters had arrived there and begun to protest.

Burma’s Famous Yaba Addicts (1): What Is Yaba?

(Translated articles from Burmese Blogs and Face book accounts in November 2013.)

Infamous WY-brand Yaba pills produced by SSA
the ethnic insurgent Shan State Armys of Burma.
Infamous Yaba or the Crazy Pill is methamphetamine pills typically produced in a round-flat pill form.

Not unlike the development of opium-derivative Heroin in 1960s Yaba also was developed by CIA-controlled American scientists in late 1970s and widely distributed by Thai criminal networks under the protection of Laotian and Thai authorities.

Similar to the later development of Heroin the drug Yaba was eventually copied and manufactured by powerful ethnic insurgent armies in Burma and imported across the border back into Thailand.
