British fears and Muslim Immigration

The issue in the US really is immigration. Muslims in small groups present no real threat beyond a possible association with radical Muslim terrorist groups and providing funds for terrorist groups through so called "charities." But as their numbers grow then the assimilation will slow and as isolation sets in they will revert to more traditional religious beliefs and will be prayed on by the more radical Imams. As they become less "western" they will lose their place in the economic structure, even as they revert more and more towards the most conservative views of Islam with the problems that brings. Unable to find work they will become easy prey for gang membership and terrorist recruiters. Whipped to a frenzy by their Imams they will riot and kill over any thing they see as an insult.

This can be readily seen by looking at Europe. Demands for Shari law have been agreed to in England and any criticism of Muslims is called hate speech in the EU. 42% of the Muslims in England have stated they do not want to become "English" but want to be separate. Ultimately that can not work. The English will force assimilation or the Muslims will take control.

Geert Wilders, a Dutch member of his Parliament has produced a 15 minute video called "Fitna." The link to it is directly below. It consists of statements by Muslims, news reports and reading from the Quran. If you dare you can watch it and draw your own conclusions. It does not express opinions, just facts. As you might imagine it has been condemned by Muslims and Wilders has been arrested for "hate speech."


As I commented before, what has happened in Europe is coming here. To understand it we need to look at Europe. Three blogs, The Brussels Journal, The Gates of Vienna and Islam In Europe are excellent sources. I read all three, and no, I do not agree with some of the things said, but the bare facts and links to other news sources, normally not in the US media, are invaluable if you really want to be informed.

Something that you would learn is that Wilders, who had been invited to England by a member of the House of Lords, has been declared persona non gratis because a Muslim member of the House of Lords has declared he will marshal 10,000 Muslims and have riots in the streets.

The invitation by the House of Lords member has not been withdrawn and Wilders says the English will have to arrest him at Heathrow. We shall see.

So much for the English's vaunted belief in democracy. So much more for the fear the Muslims have instilled in the British. So much for the country that once stood alone and toe to toe with Hitler and protected the world.

They were family. They called us "Colonials" and "Cousins" and "Yanks." We called them "Brits" and "Limeys." But most of all we knew each other as friends and allies.

I mourn their demise. I weep for their shame.

I fear for our future.

Airbus 340 crashes on the ground

This is one of those, "I couldn't make this up stories."

"The brand spanking new Airbus 340-600, the largest passenger airplane ever built, sat in its hangar in Toulouse , France without a single hour of airtime. Enter the Arab flight crew of Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT) on November 15, 2007 to conduct pre-delivery tests on the ground, such as engine run-ups, prior to delivery to Etihad Airways in Abu Dhabi.
The ADAT crew taxied the A340-600 to the run-up area. Then they took all four engines to takeoff power with a virtually empty aircraft. Not having read the run-up manuals, they had no clue just how light an empty A340-600 really is.
The takeoff warning horn was blaring away in the cockpit because they had all 4 engines at full power. The aircraft computers thought they were trying to takeoff but it had not been configured properly (flaps/slats, etc.). Then one of the ADAT crew decided to pull the circuit breaker on the Ground Proximity Sensor to silence the alarm.
This fools the aircraft into thinking it is in the air.
The computers automatically released all the brakes and set the aircraft rocketing forward. The ADAT crew had no idea that this is a safety feature so that pilots can't land with the brakes on.
Not one member of the seven-man Arab crew thought to throttle back the engines from their max-power setting, so the $200 million, brand-new aircraft crashed into a blast-barrier, totaling it.
The extent of injuries to the crew is unknown, for there has been a news blackout in the major media in France and elsewhere. Coverage of the story was deemed insulting to Moslem Arabs. Finally, the photos are starting to leak out."

Did this really happen? Hard to believe on one hand, on the other hand we have the pics. One thing bothers me in the explanation. Pulling the circuit breakers shouldn't fool the aircraft into thinking anything. It should just show the indicators as not functioning, not "the aircraft is in the air." But hey, who knows. Maybe the French engineer was brain damaged from eating too many freedom fries!

Hat tip to Larry P!

European Court of Justice considers if a chimp is a person

1. The European Court of Justice for the protection of human rights will examine the plea to grant recognition to a chimp as a person with corresponding rights. The litigant is not the chimp personally. If successful, this individual will get a guardian to represent his interests. In a future case one anticipates, institutionalized discrimination against chimps will be charged. Putting someone under tutelage because he is a chimp has implications. They are that all chimpanzees, regardless of their personal merits, are deemed to need a guardian. This is, indeed, a clear case of racial profiling.

This must be next.
