Gangs & Responses "when we've finally absorbed all the guilt", Robert Spenser: "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)", UNSCAM

Update: Gang problem in Toronto

Follow the links here, Aug. 5, 05 -- One excerpt stands out -- in a Toronto Sun editorial

"police laid a whopping 58 charges against the suspect in the child's shooting, including eight of attempted murder (three adults were wounded in the same drive-by)." . . . .

"some 25% of the thugs police arrest for gun crimes already have a record for similar offences.


Chief's tough talk needs tough action

Almost a quarter of people cops apprehend with guns are already prohibited from carrying firearms as a result of a previous conviction, Blair said.

[. . . .] That's the kind of lawlessness we're dealing with. That's why the billion-dollar boondoggle that the gun registry became is such a travesty. People who carry guns to commit crimes aren't going to register them.

But, surely society caused their tender pink psyches their problems . . . didn't it?

We have been conditioned by our government(s), courts, and the helping professionals, along with lefty political types at the municipal level such as mayors, to believe that these poor young men cannot be responsible for their own actions. Now, this? Don't confuse us, the products of liberal social engineering. We are now successfully feeling guilty over what we haven't done for all the world's troubled . . . Over these gun toting thugs. Over racism. Over not hiring them because we thought they just might be--perish the thought--ill-educated, pot-smoking, likely drug-dealing criminals who might rob us blind. We've been conditioned not to believe what is before our eyes -- the "diversity" and "multicultural" and "peaceful" you-know-what.

Don't tell us we were right all the time . . . when we've finally absorbed all the guilt and feel ashamed to be . . . well, whatever we are. Too much! Do you suppose we're right about a few other things? Think about that and keep reading.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) by Robert Spencer ISBN: 0895260131 -- This book gets five stars and this review by Bob Munro, Aug. 1, 05, who terms it "The Most Important Book You Will Ever Read!"

An absolute must-read for those interested in the so-called War On Terror, shows step-by-step, with historical accurracy, how Islam is not the Religion of Peace that President Bush claims.

With an exploding Muslim population in Canada this book should be a wake-up call for an end to high immigration laws.

Via Newsbeat1 and Diana West, in this article: PC war on terror -- "people want facts — hard, non-PC, and vital to their understanding of what we're really up against." Aug. 5, 05

[. . . . ] Maybe all the side-stepping euphemisms, from struggle to fatwa, don't matter as much any more. Elites on the left and the right, in the government and in the media, can persist in their PC babble, all of which seems to translate to "Better Dead Than Rude" (slogan attributed to John Derbyshire). But maybe some people — the ones Ronald Reagan always trusted and Abraham Lincoln said you couldn't always fool — are starting to figure things out, and without the help of elites. There is intriguing anecdotal evidence that non-pol, non-pundit citizens are looking for the kind of debate that is beyond the ken of the most prominent officials and journalists.

[. . . . ] Regnery's PIG series (Politically Incorrect Guides) [ -- See below.], Mr. Spencer's book arrives in the marketplace with an identity, if not an attitude: The reader knows he is going to get the story as it is never told in the mainstream culture. Mr. Spencer, on whose expert analysis at I have come to rely, seems to have provided a book people are hungry for—a book that explains, as the president and all his men (and Condi) cannot, why it is that the sharia-spreaders and the murder-bombers and, as Oriana Fallaci vividly labels them, "the head-choppers" do it all for "the religion of peace." [. . . . ]

Oh, but there is more to read in that article.

U.N. OIL BOSS GOT 160G IN 'KICKBACKS' via Newsbeat1, Aug. 5, 05

According to Lewis, the committee will find that a small trading company, African Middle East Petroleum Co. Ltd. Inc. (AMEP), paid Sevan in exchange for his helping it win oil contracts from Saddam's regime.

It will say that he acted "in concert" with a friend named Fred Nadler, the brother-in-law of former U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali.

You just know there is more . . .
