Wow. I was browsing around Iranian dissident sites today and found this gem. I could have titled this post “Reason 2,375 That I Hate Jimmy Carter,” but that would have given him too much recognition in the title. He doesn’t deserve it.
You must go to this site and watch this video. It’s from InfoLive.TV, and this clip is rather long but well worth watching. It’s with Iranian opposition leader, Kavey Mohseni, who speaks from his exile in Paris. He discusses life under the Teheran regime and ways it could be changed from within.
Even after all the latest exposure of Armitage and his complete and total responsibility of discussing Valerie Plame (not a covert CIA agent) with Robert Novak, and Novak’s recent admonisions about Armitage still not telling the complete truth, some of the left-wing liberal bedwetters still can’t let Karl Rove or any of the Bush Administration off the hook.
On Fox News Watch yesterday, one of the topics was the Armitage story, and the conversation was going fine until….. Neal Gabler was poked. Jim Pinkerton was speaking of how Armitage has ruined everyone else’s reputation, and wondered how Karl Rove was going to get his back? You might have just said “sic ‘em, Neal!”
Neal: Wait a minute, Rove was implicated. He corroborated a story. Lookitâ€¦the GOP can spin this any way they want to, but the bottom line is Rove was implicated, Libby was implicated, and they tried to smearâ€¦
Jim: Bottom line is, Neal wonâ€™t give up.
Jim’s right. And why continue to argue? You’ll still hear the same ol’ same ol’ about Rove and Libby, so Jim took the smartest path. Be quiet and let the idiots blabber.
I agree with Jane Hall from Fox News Watch yesterday, when she refers to the recently released picture of a tight group of Taliban attending a funeral, and our bureaucracy wouldn’t allow us to take them out. Jane said “it makes us look dumb.” I concur.
A bit later on, Jim Pinkerton loses his conservative mind momentarily and brings up the Geneva Convention. You know, that pesky little treaty of which the Taliban nor Al Qaeda are a part? Well, Cal Thomas set Jim straight on this one.
Cal: I donâ€™t see any of these beheaders saying, â€˜you know, because of the Geneva convention, Iâ€™m going to cut off fewer heads.â€™ I donâ€™t think thereâ€™s a relationship (between this missed opportunity and the Geneva Convention).
Jim: Under the Geneva Convention, if you cut off someoneâ€™s head you can be punished.
Jim: If you eliminate the Geneva Convention, then how can you punish someone?
Cal: This picture we just saw is the perfect opportunity to punish them and we didnâ€™t!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Iranian activists demand the arrest of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for the violation of human rights in Iran
Homa Arjomand calls Press Conference at Queen’s Park, Toronto, on Monday September 18, 2:00 pm
Homa Arjomand, Coordinator of the International Campaign Against Sharia Court in Canada is calling a press conference where she and other Iranian activists will demand the arrest of President Ahmadinejad for crimes against humanity.
“We declare that President Ahmadinejad has violated Articles 9, 10, 11 and 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”, said Homa Arjomand. “We therefore call on the United Nations to arrest President Ahmadinejad for violating human rights in Iran”.
The protestors claim President Ahmadinejad is responsible for the assassinations and executions of tens of Iranian activists both in Iran and abroad.
All the Muslim world is ticked off at the Pope because of something he said recently that hurt their feelings and insulted their god. (Yes, I know I made “g” lowercase in that word, but it was for a reason.) According to the AFP, “In a speech in his native Germany on Tuesday, the Pope spoke of a link between Islam and jihad, or “holy war”, and quoted a 14th-century Byzantine emperor who said innovations introduced by the Prophet Mohammed were “evil and inhuman”.” Well, excuse the hell out of me. I do find it quite refreshing that the Pope has not apologized for saying what he said; rather he is apologizing for the fact that Muslims were so offended. Don’t worry, Pontiff, we have your back on this one.
Crusader18 made another excellent video to recap just some of the actions and reactions of that wonderful peace-loving religion of Islam.
Okay, so now these wonderful peace-lovers are burning and vandalizing Christian churches, Buddhist temples, and other places of worship not related to Allah, and one op-ed piece in the Arab news said that the Pope’s comments just might “lead to war.” Wow, how “peaceful” of them, right? Someone needs to remind them that in case they haven’t noticed, their is already a battle underway.
