Qur’an Defiler Faces Felonies, Local Ron Paul Supporter Desecrates Flag, Assualts Deputy

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 30, 2007

From Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs:

I’ve received an email from Stanislav Shmulevich, who has been arrested in New York for putting a Koran in a toilet at Pace University. And his case is even more outrageous than we first reported.

First, Shmulevich was arrested and jailed for 24 hours. Second, he’s not facing misdemeanor charges—he’s being charged with two felonies, criminal mischief and aggravated harassment.

Felonies. For putting a book in a toilet.

Third, his income is on a borderline that disqualifies him for a public defender, so he stands to suffer incredible financial hardship as well.

Fourth, his name and photograph were published in several newspapers in New York, and he and his mother were ambushed outside the court by reporters. In a case like this, clearly with the potential to enrage radical Muslims, this is so irresponsible of the media that it borders on criminal.

Do we still live in a country that values free speech? This case is pretty good evidence that we do not. Mr. Shmulevich is caught in a Kafkaesque nightmare right out of the Soviet Union, and it’s all happening at the demand of the Muslim Student Association and the Council on American Islamic Relations.

If that isn’t bad enough, some more:

Muslim activists had called on Pace University to crack down on hate crimes after the incidents. As a result, the university said it would offer sensitivity training to its students.

The school was accused by Muslim students of not taking the incident seriously enough at first. Pace classified the first desecration of the holy book as an act of vandalism, but university officials later reversed themselves and referred the incident to the New York Police Department’s hate crimes unit.

Newsday

For more on the charges, Allah Pundit outlines the NYS Penal Code of the charges.

These people are demanding, and receiving special rights above and beyond those given to other people. This type of thing about special rights and privileges is going on across this country, so watch out for a form of Sharia Law to come to a neighborhood near you!

There is a local brouhaha over an idiot Ron Paul supporter who scuffled with, and assaulted, law enforcement over a misdemeanor citation, committing a felony to avoid a misdemeanor. If that isn’t the very definition of idiot, I don’t know what is.

Here are a couple of the blogs covering the local incident:

If a member of law enforcement is alerted to an American flag flying upside down at a residence, I think it would be perfectly reasonable for them to pay a courtesy visit to see if the residents are truly in distress rather than violently barge in to someone’s private home and manhandle them into submission and captivity. That would be the American thing to do.

The arrogance of government and police power is staggering.

It saddens me to hear responses on the AC-T bulletin board calling for greater uses of force and violence against peaceful protests, greater restrictions on the speech of authentic patriots, greater losses of individual liberties to the reach and powers of an authoritarian state, and a greater inversion of the sovereignty of the individual in favor of the brute force of government control.

What is becoming of our democracy these days: No fly lists, indefinite detentions, torture facilities, and police state tactics?

And now here in our beloved, Asheville?

Uptown Ruler: Police State In Our Own Backyard

Since this area is eat up with Lefty Progressive Blogs, I guess I’ll be the only one pointing out the common sense approach to this whole thing:

Had Mr. Kuhn accepted his citation, the thing would not have spun out of control. He very likely would have gotten the charges dropped before court.

Commentary

This whole narcissistic society of “ME First!” “MY Rights Trump Everyone else’s” and “I’M Offended” are some of the worst things to come from the Baby Boomers and the Hippies of the 60s.
At least these idiots and most of their supporters are in Asheville, and out of my community. My neighbors all fly the flag, and show It proper respect.
One of them summed it up pretty well for me, and I’ll share it with you:

“Don’t forget, Bob. These people DO live in Asheville, where pragmatic reality does not apply.” –John W July 28, 2007

Club Gitmo Alum Participate in Jihad

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 30, 2007

AT LEAST 30 former Guantanamo Bay detainees have been killed or recaptured after taking up arms against allied forces following their release.

They have been discovered mostly in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but not in Iraq, a US Defence Department spokesman told The Age yesterday.

Commander Jeffrey Gordon said the detainees had, while in custody, falsely claimed to be farmers, truck drivers, cooks, small-arms merchants, low-level combatants or had offered other false explanations for being in Afghanistan.

“We are aware of dozens of cases where they have returned to militant activities, participated in anti-US propaganda or engaged in other activities,” said Commander Gordon.

His comments follow the death this week of Taliban commander and former detainee Abdullah Mehsud, who reportedly blew himself up rather than surrender to Pakistani forces. In December 2001, Mehsud was captured in Afghanistan and held at Guantanamo Bay until his release in March 2004. He later became the Taliban chief for South Waziristan.

Hat Tip: Jihad Watch

And these are the types of people the Left, and their clueless allies, would have us put in U.S. prisons to spread their poison, not to mention their skills, to inmates who have converted to Islam while in prison.

What is to stop these radicalized American Muslims from engaging in their own jihad once they are freed from prison? This is a poisonous virus that must be watched very closely, lest we find ourselves in a similar situation as experienced in France, and other parts of Europe who are enduring ‘rampaging youth’ who love to burn cars, riot, and other such nonsense.

We have had numerous terrorist attacks on American soil before and after 9/11. For political reasons, both the Bush-43 Administration and the Democrats refuse to acknowledge them for what they are, jihadis committing acts of terror.
