The Enemy of My Enemy

Erdogan is a Wiesel.

Friends?

Ankara (AFP) - Turkish jets have bombed Kurdish rebel targets in the southeast of the country in the first such strikes against the separatists since an increasingly fragile 2013 ceasefire, officials said Tuesday. http://news.yahoo.com/turkey-bombs-kurdish-rebel-targets-southeast-081640615.html;_ylt=A0LEV2Awaz1U5kUAY_VXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEzOTFkY2w0BHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2JmMQR2dGlkA1ZJUDUzMF8x?.tsrc=bell

Ankara refuses to allow Kurdish fighters to cross into Syria to relieve the neighboring city. As Turkish troops and tanks stand guard at the border, many Kurds are desperate and angry, assaulted by Turkish teargas, water cannon, and police violence. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/oct/08/kobani-isis-turkey-kurds-ypg-syria-erdogan

ISIS Intensifies Siege of Kurdish Enclave in Syria. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/11/world/middleeast/isis-intensifies-siege-of-kurdish-enclave-in-syria.html?_r=0

Turkey as a friend?

Words of wisdom

  1. Turkish forces bomb Kurds. Turkey is enemy with Kurds
  2. ISIS fights Kurds. ISIS is enemy with Kurds
  3. U.S. bombs ISIS. US if enemy with ISIS
  4. Turkey and ISIS are friends.
  5. US and Kurds are friends
  6. US and Turkey are enemies.Can anybody disprove this logical conclusion?

D.O.J. Criminal Enterprise.

"Police Nabbing $5 Billion A Year From Legal Racketeering Called "Civil Forfeiture " -  See more at: http://truthyism.com/police-nabbing-5-billion-year-legal-racketeering-called-civil-forfeiture/#sthash.8GnFaZjF.dpuf

Criminal enterprise by police.

Daily Wisdom

Roceteering

To serve and protect

“Hey, here’s a great crime-fighting idea: Let’s give local police and prosecutors the authority to seize cash, cars, homes and other property from private citizens - without a court convicting those citizens of any crime. Without, in fact, even charging those citizens with any crime. Then let the authorities sell the goods and keep the proceeds for themselves.”

http://reason.com/archives/2014/09/24/the-civil-asset-forfeiture-racket

Takings: Few Americans are probably aware that law enforcement authorities are free to seize their property even when they've done nothing wrong. But it's a growing racket that needs to be shut down now.”

In recent years, policing for profit - which looks a lot like a criminal enterprise -has raked in the spoils. The Justice Department's forfeiture fund has gone from $94 million in 1986 to more than $1 billion today. State and local authorities also benefit richly, but it's hard to know to what extent, as not all report their 'profits'. We do know Philadelphia alone takes in about $6 million a year.”

So my friends please be safe and don't take money with you if you are on the road. Just in case you might be robbed or stopped by the police. If I would have to choose the lesser of two evils, I would prefer to be robbed. At least you can call 911!

Legally criminal

Legal bandits.

Windows from the Train

Posted by Nate

Windows from the train

What is there?

I like to fantasize about windows

Windows in the night

Large and small

Brightly lit and barely visible

Especially small and barely visible

Windows, the gateways into other lives

What secrets, what mysteries are they trying to hide in the depth of these openings?

These lights that are teasing, promising the unknown

Mysteries of imagination

Who is there?

Maybe scary and secret tales about the other side?

I don't want to look for too long

Just a glance

A glance of something.

A shade, a movement

A seed for imagination to build on

I keep searching, looking

While riding on the train at night

The windows of the big city

What is behind?

Just a glimpse

A perfect place to hide

City windows are surrounded by darkness

Just hinting without showing

And I love it

These windows

They give permission to dream, to wonder.

Dream about secrets and mysteries

Wonder about something strange, scary, exciting

Secret societies

Witchcraft behind the dark walls and locked doors

Aliens hiding among us and unmasking in there

Behind half-opened doors in the other room

What human dramas are hiding there that these half-lit windows cover up?

Who are the actors?

The actors in the mystery of existence

city windows at night

The night train

Do they feel that somebody is thinking about them?

Riding on the train

Just a glimpse into the strange mysterious world of my imagination

Just a fleeting moment of eye contact with a window passing by

And it is gone and the other one appears and is also left behind

The train is noisily chugging along

And I keep looking, waiting, hoping to see something

A hint, a shade of a secret life inside, behind these holes in the dark walls

Something scary and wonderful – the unknown

I see some silhouette through the dirty glass and I want it to be unusual, unfamiliar

I am drawn to these windows

To possible mystery, to the unknown

I fantasize about secret and wonderfully scary events over there

So close and yet in another universe

Maybe imaginary but real to me

The universe of my imagination glancing at me through half-lit yellow windows.

The eyes of a city

What is really out there?

I will never know

And I love it

Not knowing

Imagining, creating my own stories

Strange worlds and mysterious stories

I don't read in the night trains

I am writing stories in my mind

About the windows passing by

Gateways to other universes.

Witch hour.

Full moon magic.

Definition of Hypocrisy: Turkish Version

Posted by Horse

Turkish President is a lair and a hypocrite.

Definition of hypocrisy - Erdogan!

From the horse's mouth

Daily Wisdom

Turkish President Erdogan is accusing the world of not doing enough to fight ISIS while doing nothing to fight ISIS while keeping the Turkish Kurds from helping the Kurds in the border citry of Kobani Syria.  All the while keeping Turkish tanks idle on the border.

The Weight of the World is on My Shoulders

Posted by Nate

the Middle East crisis.

Weight of the world

The weight of the world is on my shoulders

Every soul separated from its body

Every man killed it battle

Every child, every woman, every innocent that died

Died for no reason

I die with them

So much misery in the world

Injustice, murder, senseless wars

Crimes for no reason

No reason other than anger

Vicious ignorance

Limitless greed

Killers in name of Islam

Doing God's duty

Vindictive and ruthless despots ruling over the ignorant

Ignorant trying to fill the void

The void of an empty senseless life

They created this vindictive ruthless and jealous god.

This god, this small and mean creation of human sins and ignorance

The vengeful god created in the image of the lowest common denominator of humanity

In his name the “believers” are committing unspeakable crimes

The weight of the world is on my shoulders

Killing fields in the Middle East

Israel surrounded by the alien world of the blood-thirsty killers of the Dark Ages

Dictator of Russia.

The Emperor Putin

Russia this forever drunk, unpredictable, tragic and talented nation

Russia forever ruled by demonic scary despots

Russia willingly submitting to every King, Emperor and communist psychopath

And now Putin, a power hungry maniac

The weight of the world is on my shoulders

The pain of the world is in my heart

I am a Jew

Jewish guilt – maybe that is the reason?

Guilt for all human crimes and tragedies

And the world, this big hostile and unfair world

The world hates the Jews and is afraid of us

Jewish fate

An ancient tribe

Afraid of us - a small ancient tribe of tragic and brilliant people

Antisemitism is rising, again

A sign of the dark times coming.

And we Jews are here to fulfill the tragic task

We are here to warn the world by our sacrifice

To warn of coming disaster

And maybe, just maybe, this is the reason that we Jews are carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders.

And we are the first to be crushed by it.

We Jews are always the first to meet the coming evil forces.

But not the last. The evil will not stop.

The pain of the world is in my heart

Not by choice, not by my choice.

I am a Jew, a chosen one.

Chosen to carry the the weight of the world on my shoulders.

Hypocrites

Posted by Nate

Where are pro-lifers when you need them?

Child abuse

Daily Wisdom

Not real religion.

Hypocrisy or stupidity?

The Tribune reported last Tuesday that more children died of abuse and neglect in Illinois in fiscal 2013 than at any time in the past 30 years. The increase represents a 23 percent spike over the two previous years and is the highest since the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services began keeping such data in 1981, records show.”

"Nationally, the number of child deaths from abuse and neglect has remained steady. The most recent national estimate is 1,545 such deaths. But some experts warn that the data collection is flawed and say national death totals could be much higher.”

Address to the anti-abortion crusaders.

Where are you?

Don't you scream that every life is precious?

Don't you kill abortion doctors to show that you value life above all else?

How come you are silent when children are dying because of neglect and violence?

Do you really care?

Do you?

Don't want abortions then adopt these kids.

Barbarians are at the gate.

Posted by Nate

The Barbarian invasions of Rome in Late Antiquity are inextricably bound up with the decline of Western Roman imperialism (ca. CE 300–550), and seen by many historians as inaugurating the Middle Ages http://popular-archaeology.com/issue/12012013/article/barbarians-at-the-gates-of-rome

ISIS in Europe

London

The real danger for the world democracies is their failure to recognize and to act upon the growing danger of the barbaric 7th century wave of Muslim extremists whose goal is to establish worldwide caliphate.

Today, the terrorist threat has transformed from a single group to the Global Jihad Movement, consisting of AL-Qaeda and its operationally associated groups in Asia, Africa, Middle East, and the Caucuses, as well as the self-radicalized homegrown cells. As the spearhead of the Global Jihad Movement, AL-Qaeda presents the most significant threat both to Muslim regimes and Western societies. AL-Qaeda’s philosophy of global jihad and methodology of suicide attacks has gained popularity and traction within politicized and radicalized Muslims. Its philosophy urging Muslims to fight their local governments [local jihad], the US and its Allies [global jihad] is gaining worldwide acceptance.” http://news.siteintelgroup.com/blog/index.php/submissions/21-jihad/44-reassess

The silent majority.

So while I understand that most Muslims are not at war with us, they’ve proven in their silence and inaction against jihad that they’re not on our side either, and there’s nothing we can say or do to change that. We just have to finally accept it and stop expecting them to come around, while doing our best to kill those who are trying to kill us.”

We didn’t use terms such as “Radical Nazism”, “Extremist Shinto” and “Militant Communism” in the past. “Militant Islam”, Political Islam”, etc., are redundant terms. Our pretending otherwise has proven disastrous. Thousands of American lives, both civilian and military, have been sacrificed because of policies predicated on the myth that “Islam means peace.” We didn’t try to reform Shinto or Nazism during World War II; the major changes in those cultures took place only after we thoroughly DE-militarized them.”

http://www.frontpagemag.com/2011/bosch-fawstin/non-muslim-muslims-and-the-jihad-against-the-west/

The appeasers.

As the Israeli government counterattacks against terrorism, we need a parallel counterattack against today’s intellectual and ideological support structure for totalitarian terrorism, which emboldens extremists, intentionally or not. In this battle of ideas we must accept complexity, acknowledge fluidity, reject false moral equivalences, and question biases, no matter how trendy.

As an academic, I feel betrayed by my many colleagues who enable totalitarian terrorism with their simplistic slogans regarding Israel. Academics thrive on complexity; we can complicate anything, leveraging it into papers, lectures, and cocktail riffs. Yet, when Israel is involved, oversimplification and obfuscation prevail, encouraging demonization.” http://blogs.jpost.com/content/counterattack-fight-totalitarian-terrorists-and-their-enablers

Diversion: “Military. A feint intended to draw off attention from the point of main attack.” http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/diversion

I wonder if Muslims are using Europe's organic antisemitism to divert the European's attention from Islam's real goal – the wold caliphate.

"As a universal religion, Islam envisages a global political order in which all humankind will live under Muslim rule as either believers or subject communities. In order to achieve this goal it is incumbent on all free, male, adult Muslims to carry out an uncompromising struggle 'in the path of Allah,' or jihad. This in turn makes those parts of the world that have not yet been conquered by the House of Islam an abode of permanent conflict (Dar al-Harb, the house of War) which will only end with Islam's eventual triumph.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worldwide_Caliphate

Unfortunately it is impossible for Israel alone to defeat the caliphate. And if the world will not wake up from it's delusion soon it better get ready for a new order – Islam.

ISIS plans

Not just Israel
