Vandals Deface Three Indiana Christian Churches with Islamic Graffiti

Sometime on Saturday night, vandals attacked three Christian houses of worship in Columbus, Indiana, spray-painting the word “infidels” and citations of verses from the Koran on the outer walls.

St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, Lakeview Church of Christ, and East Columbus Christian Church all had the word “infidels” spray-painted on them, in places of prominence to be seen by worshipers.

Cited in the Indianapolis Star, Columbus police spokesperson Matt Harris said that church employees discovered the vandalism when they arrived to prepare for Sunday services.

At St. Bartholomew, the words “Qur’an 3:151” were also left.

That verse reads

We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.

Speaking to WTHR, Channel 13, the Columbus NBC affiliate, associate pastor Father Doug Marcotte said, “It is certainly not a warm and fuzzy verse. It talks about the infidels, their refuge being the fire.”

There was no Koran verse painted on the Lakeview Church but “Qu’ran 19:88” was left on East Columbus Christian Church.

That verse begins a phrase, which, in its entirety (19:88 to 93), says: 

None will have the power of intercession save he who has received a promise from the Gracious God. And they say, “The Gracious God has taken unto Himself a son.” Assuredly, you have done a most monstrous thing. The heavens might well-nigh burst thereat, and the earth cleave asunder, and the mountains fall down in pieces. Because they ascribe a son to the Gracious God. Whereas it becomes not the Gracious God to take unto Himself a son.

Said Father Marcotte, “Is there somebody that really believes this, that we’re all infidels, so they felt the need to write it all over our church? Is this some sort of a nasty prank? Is this someone that’s trying to incite people against Muslims? I mean, I don’t know.”

Quoted by Fox59.com, Columbus resident Nassim Khaled, who volunteers at the local Islamic Center, said, “We condemn this, and I read the verse, most importantly what it showed me is the ignorance, who actually misquoted or misinterpreted the Koran.”

According to WTHR, Columbus police wouldn’t comment on whether federal authorities had been contacted, but at least one of the churches has surveillance video that may offer clues.

Doug Ross @ Journal: Leading From Behind Into a Cauldron of Anarchy

By James Simpson

The U.K. Daily Mail is reporting today that an Islamist group is now occupying the former U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya. This was a non-violent takeover. They basically walked in. Embassy staff had departed in July because of the deteriorating security situation in Libya.

The video embedded here shows the Islamic group, which goes by the name Fajr Libya, or Dawn of Libya, swimming in the pool and showing reporters around. The Mail cites one of the group’s commanders as saying they are occupying the compound to protect it from looters. The video however, suggests a group of men reveling in their newfound prize. According to the report, they have been there about a week.

Still, the commander may really want to keep the Embassy in presentable shape. While the country is racked by violent confrontations between the various militias that took down Qaddafi, this group has taken up positions throughout Tripoli and are telling foreign diplomats that it is safe to return. In fact it is part of a power play between the recently elected parliament and the former, Islamist parliament that took over following Qaddafi’s ouster.

The group is not associated with Ansar-al-Sharia, which was responsible for the Benghazi attacks in 2012, nor is it associated with the new parliament - called the House of Representatives - elected in June. It is allied with the deposed parliament, the General National Congress, which is now trying to reassert itself after Dawn of Libya secured Tripoli.

Its nominal Prime Minister, one Omar al-Hasi, was quoted as saying, “We reject extremism and terrorism. I am not with a specific group, party, operation or city but stand for a government for all Libyans.” However, the GNC is strongly Islamist, while the popularly elected parliament is not.

That may be irrelevant. Members of the House of Representatives have relocated to Tobruk, far away from the fighting after losing control in Tripoli to the Islamists. Meanwhile, Abdullah al-Thinni, the elected government’s caretaker prime minister and his cabinet, announced that it has resigned to allow the House of Representatives to form a new government. Being effectively a government in hiding however, it remains to be seen if it will be able to reassert its authority in any meaningful way.

However this story ends, the sight of those Islamists gleefully diving into the U.S. Embassy pool and shouting “Allah-o-Akbar!” are not good optics for President Obama, or for that matter, presumptive presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. It serves to remind us all of the disgrace this administration has brought to the United States, how we have become the laughing stock of the world, and how Obama’s trainwreck foreign policy has turned the entire Middle East into a cauldron of anarchy, and Iraq into an unspeakably monstrous killing field. It is without precedent in American history.

World’s first 3D-printed skeleton key raises security fears

Does this key made using a 3D printer compromise your security?

A pair of engineers have created a key that can open any ABUS E20/E30 6-pin tumbler lock.

With just a photograph of a lock and a few pieces of publicly accessible information, they developed a software programme called Photobump, which creates a 3D file for a bump key, also known as a skeleton key.

They then created the key using a plastic 3D printer.

Although the engineers do not intend to release the software, it has raised the issue of how easily standard locks can be compromised

Elephant who ‘cried’ for freedom could be chained again - Telegraph

Raju, the elephant who “cried” when he was rescued by animal rights campaigners, may be returned to the owners who abused him

Raju could soon be clapped in irons once again Photo: Press People

When wildlife campaigners rescued Raju, a starving elderly elephant, from his chains earlier this year, video footage and photographs of him “crying” at his release moved millions around the world.

But he could soon be clapped in irons once again after the owners who mistreated him filed a legal petition for his return as their lawful property.

Elephants are protected by law in India, but several thousand are still kept by unscrupulous owners and abused by their “mahouts” – handlers.

Video footage of Raju’s release showed his legs being unshackled from heavy chains, with spikes that had pierced his thick hide. Long spear-like spikes were recovered from his enclosure – which despite being illegal are widely used in India to train and control working elephants.

Many of the elephants are chained outside Hindu temples, or hired out for rides at children’s parties or at lavish weddings.

Several hundred are kept at Jaipur’s Amber Fort where they ferry tourists up its steep paths in desert conditions, and are hired for elephant polo matches. Campaigners say they should not be kept in captivity or in Northern India where the arid conditions and searing roads amount to cruel conditions – they need the wet grasslands and rainforests of India’s south to thrive.

Kartick Satyanarayan, co-founder of Wildlife SOS, the group which rescued Raju, said it would contest the owners’ claim on the grounds of their cruelty.

"We are going to fight it," he said.

"The animal is on the path of recovery and is doing fine after being rescued from slavery. He was on the verge of death when he was rescued and since then we have invested a lot to rehabilitate him.

"We have a foolproof case against the self-proclaimed owner including that he has no ownership documents. Moreover, the treatment the elephant received was against the law. We will put these facts before the court and pray for Raju’s freedom."

Rocker Girl, Mother of Two ISIS Recruit Wants to Behead Christians with ‘a Blunt Knife’

Rocker Girl, Mother of Two ISIS Recruit Wants to Behead Christians with ‘a Blunt Knife’

The Islamic State’s recruiting efforts across the Western world have been disturbingly successful. At least two Americans have died fighting for ISIS; both were described as fairly ordinary American kids by everyone who knew them only a year or two ago. The man who beheaded American journalist James Foley on video was almost certainly a British citizen, most likely Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, a West London rapper from an affluent home whose music was played on BBC Radio One.  

UK Metro has a story about another former musician gone over to ISIS, Sally Jones, seen here fronting an all-girl rock band in happier times:

Did this British mother who once fronted a rock band join ISIS in Syria?

UK Metro is careful to describe Jones’ alleged defection to ISIS as the subject of an investigation, but there seems to be quite a bit of evidence on social media:

Investigators have revealed the British woman who travelled to the middle eastern country after marrying a known British jihadist may be Sally Jones, from Chatham in Kent.

Jones, believed to be in her 40s, married British hacker-turned-extremist Junaid Hussain and converted to Islam, before the two were believed to have travelled to Syria separately where she has been making her threats via Twitter.

Changing her name to Umm Hussain al-Britani, the mother of two allegedly tweeted messages of hate such as: ‘You Christians all need beheading with a nice blunt knife and stuck on the railings at raqqa … Come here I’ll do it for you!’

Apparently she was last heard from on Twitter, telling her tweeps that she and her husband had arrived safely in the caliphate after spending half a year stuck in Syria.  According to the UK’s Daily Mail, her hubby fled Britain one step ahead of the law… in the company of none other than Foley’s alleged killer, Abdel Majed Abdel Bary:

Umm Hussain’s husband escaped to Syria last year while on police bail, and has been posting extremist messages on social media pledging to conquer the world and kill infidels.

He was accompanied on his journey by Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, 24, a former rapper from west London who is believed to have been on MI5’s radar.  

In 2012 Hussain was jailed for stealing personal information from Tony Blair, and is thought to be putting his hacking skills to use adding to the militants’ huge war chest.

Hussain is originally from Birmingham and tweets behind the alias Abu Hussain al-Britani. He has been pictured online posing with a scarf over his face and a rifle in his hands.

That’s some pretty impressive recruiting from what President Obama described as a “junior varsity” player pretending to be the terrorist equivalent of Kobe Bryant by putting on one of his uniforms.

The Most Versatile Mossberg isn’t a Shotgun: The MVP Patrol 5.56 – GunsAmerica Blog

mvp

Mossberg ships the MVP with a 10 round mag, but all AR mags fit.

I will be the first one to admit that when I think of Mossberg’s guns, their rifles aren’t the first thing that come to mind. I’m a Mossberg fanboy. One of the three guns I keep close-at-hand is my Mossberg 590A1. It is a classic because it’s bombproof and it works. But rifles? There are so many other names that come to mind.

That’s changed now. The MVP is a solid platform. We reviewed the MVP Patrol a while back, and were pleased with it, but I wasn’t the one pulling the trigger. This time we’re looking at the MVP Patrol in 5.56. The basic nature of this rifle’s design makes it easy to use, and the various chamberings (5.56, and .308) make it a logical choice for preppers. If you’re looking for a compact rifle that shoots inexpensive ammo, and one that is surprisingly capable, you should check out the Mossbergs.

The MVP Patrol

The MVP line is easy enough to understand. All of the guns are bolt action rifles. The materials are typical to rifles of this class: wood and blued steel. Yet Mossberg has taken the concept to the next level by incorporating some common design elements that set the MVP apart. My favorite is the magazine well. The MVP line takes AR-15 mags, or AR-10 mags (depending on the caliber). We’re looking at the Patrol today, which looks more like a scout rifle than the Predator version.

mvp

The Whole rifle comes in at a compact 37.5 inches.

Mossberg includes one 10 round AR mag with the gun, but it will take any mag that will fit in an AR. I tried all of the various brands I have kicking around. Polymer mags are tighter, but they will work. This version of the MVP Patrol has another common AR feature: the flash hider. Another version does away with it, which leaves the barrel just over 16 inches. The stock is rugged. They come in black, green and tan. The texture on them is very aggressive. While there are patterned areas at the forend, the whole stock has the feel of course sand paper. There isn’t a place on the gun that feels slick. It is almost like the wooden stock of the gun has been sprayed with bed-liner.

mvp

To keep the finish from eating your cheek, the MVP comes with a neoprene cover.

This may explain the neoprene sleeve over the buttstock. Without it, getting a good cheek weld would be like snuggling up to 40 grit sandpaper. What makes the rest of the rifle easy to hold makes could be uncomfortable.

Speaking of cheek welds, I’d like to spill some ink in praise of Mossberg’s adaptive use of sights on the Patrol. So many bolt guns ship from the factory with a few holes tapped in the receiver. No irons. No rail. Even AR-15s often ship without irons.

Not the Patrol. It has a large fiber optic front blade that is almost tall enough to extend over the top of a suppressor. And the rear sight, mounted midway down the barrel, is fully adjustable. These aren’t the world’s best iron sights, mainly because the actual size of the front bead is too large for long range target acquisition, but they’re going to do just fine out to 100 yards. And they are there, as a back up, if you should ever need them.

One way that the MVP Patrol is not set up like a scout rifle is the placement of the scope rail. The rail sits proud above the receiver. While this makes hand loading a bit more cumbersome, it doesn’t impede ejection. The rifle kicks out brass consistently. And the rail allows for the immediate use of an infinite variety of optics. No struggling to find matching scope mount bases. Plug and play. Mossberg sells a version that has a scope already mounted, too, for those who want to take that last element out of the equation.

Articles: What kind of men are we?

One of the strangest periods of Roman history was the period right before the republic collapsed and became an empire.  The Romans weren’t known for losing, but during this period, they lost nearly everything they put their hands to.  Catiline nearly overthrew the republic by rallying profligates, whoremongers, and drunken hipsters under the flag of rapacity.  A Numidian king named Jugurtha practically walked into the Senate, bribed a bunch of senators, and caused them to overlook his hostile foreign policy – which cost a friendly kingdom its ruin.  Pirates practically owned the seas, so that all sea trade had practically stopped.  Nothing was fought for; everything was bought.  Money, and not honor, was the currency; safety was lost for safety’s sake.  Jugurtha was told by the Romans themselves that everything was for sale in Rome, and he proved them right.

Rome itself was plunder until Pompey arrived and, in a moment of manliness and decision, cleared the seas of pirates.  The republic was lost to Catiline until Cicero shouted like an angry patriot and placed his own life in danger to save it.  Rome was bought until Metellus and Marius arrived, denying the bribes of Jugurtha, and actually decided to stand by their friends. 

The strange thing about all of this was that Rome had always had the means to fight; she’d always had the men and the arms, and certainly always had the connections to do it.  The fact of the matter was that until a few angry men stood in the senate and began to question the effeminacy and dishonor of the Roman people, nobody had been content to do anything about it.  Simply put, they lacked the will.  A general named Scipio said only years earlier that their triumph over Carthage would make them fat and lazy and ruin the republic.  Truer words have never been spoken: a common enemy meant a common vigilance.  Rome had ruined Carthage with arms, and then decided to ruin herself with luxury.  She fought a dangerous general one day, and the next nearly lost herself to a rabble of her own indebted Ivy-league playboys.

It’s been said many times before that great nations – and particularly democracies – ruin themselves.  Sometimes they ruin themselves because they become so proud that they pick fights they shouldn’t, but more often they become so secure in their happiness that they forget that happiness is the result of reason, justice, labor, and war.  As Moses once said to Israel, their greatest dangers lie not in the enemies that confront them, but in the incontinence and effeminacy that so often succeed victory

POLL: 95 Percent of BBC Viewers Think Multiculturalism Has Failed

A whopping 95 percent of respondents to a BBC straw poll have said that they think multiculturalism in Britain is a failure. The poll was taken yesterday morning during the BBC’s Saturday Morning Live show, and asked “Is multiculturalism working?” Just 5 percent said “Yes”; 95 percent said “No”.

Breitbart London’s James Delingpole was a guest on the show. During the discussion of the results, he said: “I think the thwacking great majority in that poll says it all. The multicultural experiment in Britain has failed totally and people have finally realised how much it has failed. Rotherham was just one example; we’re seeing cases all around the country. It has been a disaster. I think that this is going to be the turning point.”

Also on the show was the left-wing journalist Owen Jones, who extolled the virtues of interracial sex and claimed: “fortunately the actually scientific polling suggests that’s quite a pessimistic answer. Yes there are always tensions which we need to work on. We need to bring our communities together. But Britain has one of the highest levels of interracial relationships in the whole world.

Doug Ross @ Journal: YOUR UNITED NATIONS IN ACTION: Photo of ISIS Driving UN Vehicle (Paid For With Your Tax Dollars)

How many countries in the world respect the rights of the individual, reject authoritarianism, and enjoy a civil society?

To be fair, that’s a trick question. No country does, though a few come close. Perhaps Canada, Israel, and the U.S. for starters (though in the latter case, said attributes appear to be eroding on a daily basis).

So why would any rational American support an elite group of 100+ barbaric, tyrannical regimes? That’s a rhetorical question, because we already do — not by the consent of the governed, mind you — and it’s called “The United Nations” (or “U.N.”). And the UN, by dint of numbers, supports Islamists, terrorists and other anti-civilization throwbacks.

Did you know the United Nations runs a car rental office just for bloodthirsty terrorist pig-dogs?

If you’re a little bit late to the party, it’s true: the United Nations actively supports terrorism.

One day, I pray, we elect a Constitutional conservative president. And one of their first acts is to completely defund the UN, boot it out of New York City, and name John Bolton the Secretary of State. For spite.

Yeah. I went there.
