Sir Salman RushdieMuslims around the world condemned the award when it was announced last year in the Monarch’s Birthday Honours list.

Sir Salman, 61, who has written a number of acclaimed books, went into hiding in 1989 after the publication of his book The Satanic Verses.
The novel sparked widespread protests by Muslims and Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa against him.

Iranian Mortars Pound Israel During Ceasefire

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 25, 2008

Israel is moving anti-mortar radars to its border with Gaza, to fight the growing number of Iranian 120mm mortars Hamas is using. While the mortar is heavy (about 300 pounds), it can be broken down into components (barrel-94 pounds, base plate- 135 pounds, bipod-72 pounds, sight-four pounds). More accurate than the locally made Kassam rockets, and with more range (normally 6-7 kilometers, but up to 10 kilometers with special ammo), the shells weigh 35-40 pounds and have about the same destructive effect as 105mm howitzer shells.

Another news story:


Under cover of a barrage of more than 50 missiles, mortars and rocket, Hamas made three attempts to breach the Gaza border fence for major suicide bombings, the last one late Thursday, June 12. They sent a bulldozer to ram Netiv Ha’asara, a bomb car to crash the border fence and gunmen on foot to blow up the Erez crossing. Israel ground and air units foiled them all.

Israeli locations from Ashkelon in the north down to Shear Hanegev, Kibbutz Nir Oz and Sderot were struck by 20 missiles, one Grad rocket and more than 35 mortar shells. A woman was injured at Kibbutz Yad Mordecai. Sirens warned people under attack to stay in indoors, as fires blazed and explosions erupted – one close to the Barzilai regional hospital in Ashkelon.

The first Hamas attempt to blow up Israeli military guard posts at the Erez crossing was mounted early Thursday as the Israeli defense ministry’s political coordinator Amos Gilead traveled to Cairo to hand over Israel’s acceptance of the Egyptian formula for a truce in Gaza.

They were intercepted and at least one was killed by Israeli ground and air fire.

The terrorists have been at war with Israel, and they are using weapons supplied by Iran…thus acting as a proxy for Iran in its’ quest to destroy Israel.

Why are we aiding the terrorists by restraining Israel?

Why is Secretary of State Condi Rice acting to assist terrorists kill Israelis?

When will we face a reckoning for our actions that contribute to the harming of God’s Chosen People?
When will the government of Israel realize that all a ceasefire does is allow the terrorists to re-arm? I point you to the concept of hudna:

“What is being touted as a ‘cease-fire’ is something called a ‘hudna.’ A hudna [also known as a hudibiyya or khudaibiya] is a tactical cease-fire that allows the Arabs to rebuild their terrorist infrastructure in order to be more effective when the “cease-fire” is called off.” — “Cease-fire?” by Shira A. Drissman

**update** 6.54am
It has occurred to me that most people alive today have not been taught anything other than the pro-Palestinian lies pushed on them by the lefties in our “public” schools systems, and in the media.

I have tracked down and made a playlist for an excellent movie about the founding of Israel told from the point of view of the story of American Mickey Marcus. Note: The videos are out out of order…sorry about that. The owner uploaded them out of order and mislabeled them.

You can buy a DVD of Cast a Giant Shadow, or order the book, Cast A Giant Shadow: The Story of Mickey Marcus Who Died to Save Jerusalem.

There are many history books you can read on the subject at a library near you. There are many online sources of the same information, and I will introduce you to them over the next few weeks.

Here is a complete series put out by the BBC on the birth of modern day Israel in 6 parts:

Wednesday Hero ~ SSG Jude Voss

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 25, 2008


Staff Sgt. Jude Voss
1st Battalion, 3d Special Forces Group (Airborne)
U.S. Army

His courage illustrates a combat truth to these veterans of World War II, Korea and Vietnam: Soldiers arent thinking about glory or ideals in the midst of a battle. They fight for the men to the left and right of them.

And that’s just what SSgt. Jude Voss did in September of 2006 when, without consideration to his safety, SSgt. Voss ran through enemy fire and the burning, smoking debris of a truck to rescue Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube. Sgt. Stube was in a bad way. Uniform burning and legs busted, but because of the actions of SSgt. Voss he is alive today.

Because of his actions that day, SSgt. Voss was nominated for and received the Silver Star Medal for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action. “I did what everybody out there would do” Voss said. “I was just the closest guy.”

You can read SSgt. Voss’s story here.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives
so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday.
For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

We Have Every Right To Dream Heroic Dreams.
Those Who Say That We’re In A Time When There Are No Heroes,
They Just Don’t Know Where To Look
