What a lovely, lovely man...

From CP Story (my emphasis):

Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader issued a worldwide call Thursday for Muslims to rise up in a holy war against Israel and join the fighting in Lebanon and Gaza until Islam reigns from "Spain to Iraq."

In the message broadcast by Al-Jazeera television, Ayman al-Zawahri, second in command to Osama bin Laden, said that al-Qaida now views "all the world as a battlefield open in front of us."


"It is a jihad (holy war) for the sake of God and will last until (our) religion prevails . . . from Spain to Iraq," al-Zawahri said. "We will attack everywhere."

He said Arab governments were accomplices to Israel. "My fellow Muslims, it is obvious that Arab and Islamic governments are not only impotent but also complicit . . . and you are alone on the battlefield. Rely on God and fight your enemies . . . make yourselves martyrs."

Lovely indeed! Makes me want to wax poetic.

Perhaps it IS time to wage holy war on an intolerant destructive religion.

Or maybe if we ignore it and live in small towns we'll be okay.

And yet ... and yet, Erin, our left thinking "friends" will dismiss such a comment without a moment's pause, much like the Germans dismissed Mein Kampf before Hitler came to power.

Polls indicate that most Liberal & NDP voters in Canada and Democrats in the U.S. believe that "all" we need to do to resolve this terrorist threat is make greater efforts to "better understand" the grievances of the terrorists. This is pure nonsense, of course, but sadly I don't think any of them will wake-up until a major WMD is unleashed on a North American city.

Subject: Re: Your Appearance on Erin Airton's Show

Dear Ben,

I just heard your excellent discussion with Erin Airton on CKNW. I could apologize for the socialist nitwits who called you, but you quickly and decisively shredded their weak arguments. The "finest" example of the stupidity I have to deal with here in Vancouver was exemplified by Socialist Brother Tom who said to you, "Next to the U.S., which is the world's greatest terrorist, Israel is clearly #2." You may have noticed that his accent was British. I have anecdotal evidence that the leftist of the left here in Canada are British retreads that were pushed out of their country when Margaret Thatcher took over. When that sea change happened, it seems that many of them came over here to fertile Canada to pollute the minds of our weak minded citizenry.

I've never understood why hatred of the United States and Americans and hatred of Israel and Jews is almost always aligned with Socialism. This might be an interesting article for you to write one day.

I'm not Jewish, but a [Recovering] Catholic, but I wholeheartedly support Israel's right to defend itself!!! Thank you for gracing our airwaves and spreading a little common sense into the closed minds of so many Vancouverites!

Thanks so much for the kind words -- and thanks for listening! Please lett Erin know you enjoyed it as well.

Thanks again,

SPECIAL NOTE: Erin on CKNW July30/06, I too listen to some of the program. Did like the consevative guest informing on the Middle East situation. As with the previous poster here regarding the caller from Burnaby who is Tom Westwater. Tom does not like kids,marriage,Judeo-Christanity, he use to complain about not getting enough money as a teacher too when he taught in high school. Tom is a lefty,he thinks he's a huge intellect. Tom is still stuck in the 1967 ideology-left-wing. Seems he still needs to learn their is more things we don't know than what we do. Perhaps Tom should read a book titled-The Case For Christ by Lee Strobel in which contains a dozen world top scholars all with earned Ph.d's from top university's and they give powerful evidence for the reality of the Biblical Jesus Christ.

Hamas Is An Israeli Front

It's core leadership is directed by Shin Beth. It is financed by 'mysterious foreign entities'. In reality, the money comes from the American taxpayer, financing covert Intel operations through Israeli fronts in Jordan, Syria, and Iran.

I've had a debate on my web site with a conservative friend about whether we are safer in the post 9/11 world. I don't usually try to promote my blog on here, but I thought it may be of interest to some of the readers here:

Are we safer?

Pelalusa, is the take down of the twin towers not enough? Cannot planes that cause that much damage not be considered weapons since there was indeed mass destruction? What about the Oklahama bombings? Perhaps you mean that we need one in Canada for people to wake up like the london bombings did for the UK.

Tom may be stuck in the 1967 ideology-left-wing, but so are a lot of people. Too many people have not learned to think. Too often, people roll their eyes, or say, "Your not bringing up that topic are you?" We have too many taboo subjects and Islamic jihad is one of them

Fifteen days ago, I read that smoking can kill you, so the next day I stopped smoking.
Twelve days ago, I read that too much red meat can kill you, so the next day I stopped eating red meat.
Eight days ago, I read that drinking can kill you, so the next day I stopped drinking.
Three days ago, I heard that cell phones can kill you, so I stopped using my cell phone.
Yesterday, I read that having sex can kill you, so this morning I stopped reading.

Bernie,your above post is a funny one with some merit. Maybe a study will be done if you stop reading that might kill you too and said through radio. I know what you mean though. Although study's can have some truth in them. Fact is their NOT conclusive. Besides a study can be done proving study's are wrong!.

I was debating an
issue with a friend.
I asked him what proof
or facts he had to support his
case and all he said was
"studies have been done...

I asked him which studies
and he said "college studies."
That was the end of the discussion.

I guess 22 year old college
students have all the wisdom and answers.

If "The World Coffee Growers
and Distributors Association"
commissions a study on
the health effects of
drinking coffee, I wonder
what the report would say?

Short of total annihilation, there can be no more fundamental change in a society than the one taking place in ours, a change which has no name and whose nature is unrecognized because its separate facets--crime, delinquency, drugs, sexual anarchy, educational underachievement, family breakdown, feminism--are perceived as separate problems, or as not problems at all, but progress. The essence of the change is the abandonment of the system of social organization based on male kinship and the reversion to the older system of social organization based on female kinship. The statistics which measure this change inch upward only one or two percentage points a year, but viewed historically it is happening with electrifying speed.

What makes it possible is the sexual de-regulation of women, with (in the words of feminist Helen Colton) "no man, be it husband or physician, telling [a woman] what she may or may not do with her own body." The idea strikes at the basis of the patriarchal system, which requires that males shall share equally in reproductive responsibility. Patriarchy achieves this sharing by imposing the system of agnation, kinship through males, in place of kinship through females such as is found in the ghettos, the islands of the Caribbean and surviving Stone Age societies.

What men must do to salvage the male kinship system is to safeguard the male paycheck--to prevent anyone, ex-wife, house-male judge or house-male lawmaker, from telling him what he may or may not do with that paycheck, and that if he enters into a contract of marriage to share that paycheck with a wife in exchange for her sharing of her reproductive life with him, this contract shall not be abrogated for the purpose of depriving him of his children and his paycheck. Early Roman society was divided into the plebeians, meaning "the people" (the base of the word survives in plebiscite, a vote of the people), and the patricians, the "father-people" (from patri, father), a term which can have come into existence only in a society where mother-kinship was normative and the idea of kinship based on fatherhood was an innovation. The success of the innovation made Roman government, law and civilization possible. The patricians were wealthier, more stable; and in time the plebeians saw the advantages of father-kinship, which became the norm for all of Roman society. Learning how to govern their families on patriarchal principles made the Romans capable of governing the world. The social structure based on mother-kinship is found in relatively pure form in Haiti--the most impoverished, most squalid, most matriarchal nation in the Western Hemisphere. Haitian women enjoy the sexual liberation Ms. Colton covets for American women: the typical Haitian woman has children by three different fathers, none of whom, needless to say, has a family in any meaningful sense of the word, none of whom, needless to say, can be motivated to work very hard. Poverty is the hallmark of societies (or areas within societies) based on female kinship. When the complaint is made that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, what is meant is that patriarchal families get richer and female-headed families get poorer. Feminist agitprop calls this "the feminization of poverty" and tries to combat it with the Mutilated Beggar argument, or with affirmative action and comparable worth programs and quotas favoring women.

Stop Taxpayer Financing
of Annual Vancouver
Firework Pollution

July 1 2002, Alternet.Org, Fireworks: Breathtaking ... and Deadly, by Gar Smith,
In the final December of the 20th century, environmentalists in Sweden, Germany and Australia issued a Global Call for Action, asking the world community to take a stand against 21st century air pollution by halting the globe-circling fireworks displays planned to celebrate the dawn of the year 2000.

"Wouldn't it be nice to be able to greet the new millennium in a dignified, responsible and environmentally friendly way?" the Sweden-based Heavy Metal Bulletin asked. "Is this type of celebration really a good habit to carry into the New Millennium?"

Air-bursting shells -- with picturesque names like chrysanthemum, peony, willow, saturn, strobe, and salute -- are lovely to watch but, when it comes to skyrockets, every silver lining has a cloud. As the Bulletin points out, heavy metal fallout from exploding fireworks poses a threat to "nature, animals and human beings."

In addition to the charges of blackpowder (containing carcinogenic sulfur-coal compounds) that send skyrockets airborne and blast them into patterns of glowing sparks, fireworks contain a number of toxic metals that produce a range of dazzling colors. Strontium produces blazing reds, copper compounds burn blue, magnesium, titanium and aluminium create brilliant white sparks. Sodium chloride produces orange-yellow fire, boric acid burns green, potassium and rubidium compounds produce purples and burning lithium glows red. Glittering greens are produced by radioactive barium.

Classification of railway accidents

Classification of railway accidents, both in terms of cause and effect, is a valuable aid in studying rail (and other) accidents to help to prevent similar ones occurring in future. Systematic investigation for over 150 years has led to the railways' excellent safety record (compared, for example, with road transport).

Ludwig von Stockert (1913) proposed a classification of accidents by their effects (consequences); e.g. head-on collisions, rear-end collisions, derailments. Schneider and Mase (1971) proposed an additional classification by causes; e.g. driver's errors, signalmen's errors, mechanical faults. Similar categorisations had been made by implication in previous books e.g. Rolt (1956), but Stockert's and Schneider/Mase's are more systematic and complete. With minor changes, they represent best knowledge.

Israel Turns Southern Lebanon Into Rubble

Israel Is Committing Total Genocide On Southern Lebanon

This is beyond belief that an entire world sits back as Israel destroys Lebanon's southern villages, and kills thousands. Their procedure is to shell a town, send in demolition teams, and then bring in bulldozers.

Towns that existed for 2,000 years are now rubble.

BERNIE,regarding your post on Dads. Of much concern is Artificial Insemination given to lesbians. Male sperm given to lesbians so they can have a baby without a man. Problem is->This is morally wrong. Reasons:The child rights for a dad is removed also contributing to a dadless society.A male influence matters too especially the natural dad. Male sperm was never NATURALLY intended for making lesbians a family. Lesbians simply can adopt. Amazing the media is so quiet on this important issue all these years-Not even questioning this issue. Switch it around, give homosexual men womens eggs for a science-lab with the homosexual mens sperm and create baby's for homosexual men only-throw the mother away but take her eggs and contribute to a motherless society. The media would be buzzing this is WRONG!. Also lesbian couples even with Artificial Insemination one is the natural mother the other lesbian Not whereas a woman and a man creating a baby both are the natural parents.

Bernie,upon some men donating their sperm and also impregnating several women. Later a half brother/sister could meet up and be a unknowing close relative couple. The general media unfortunately don't explain these complications of future dangers with artificial insemination.Even the child when it grows up can sue for not given the right for a natural dad.
