I see that the Taliban have hit a new low by using a boy of around 12 to behead a man they accused of spying for the US. Parts of a video of the beheading were broadcast on the Dubai-based al-Arabiya TV network. The Taliban said the dead man, Ghulam Nabi, had given the US information which led to an air strike in which a senior Taliban commander died. The video footage shows Mr Nabi being blindfolded with a chequered scarf and making what is said to be a confession. The boy, wearing a camouflage jacket and wielding a large knife, denounces him as a spy ….and then cuts off his head.

Just remember – the Religion of Peace AND love.

Answering An Anti-Semite’s Challenge

By ATWadmin On April 21st, 2007 at 5:35 pm

Dear Alan Hart,

You are an anti-semite. You say you will sue anyone identifying themselves who says so. So post your solicitor’s contact details in the comments and I’ll stitch you up even better in court than David Irving. I’ve left the same message on your Blog, though comment moderation means it’ll never be seen.

Bring it on.

(This post is in no way intended to reflect the views of David Vance or any other writers at A Tangled Web. Unless they choose to be associated with it in the comments as indeed can anyone else wanting to join in the condemnation of this ‘journalist’ and his views. If he has the cojones to answer the challenge instead of burying all the responses and pretending us Zionists are all indeed all ‘too cowardly to come out of hiding’ I’ll let you know.)

if needed, a second opinion is available!

Following from David’s "Letter from Iran", just thought I’d draw the Reader’s attention to another view of that vicious and depraved regime which rules in Iran.

It comes courtesy of an Iranian lady’s memories of her treatment at the hands of representatives of this "government" and serves to demonstrate what is the daily fare in this ‘Earthly Paradise’ (the mullahs’ own description). It should also show the value which these same servants of their god place on the girls and women of this paradise, and to remind us; that is if we needed any reminders, that these beliefs are held by many of those whom we have let into our own country on an unrestricted basis!

bin-laden.jpgLet me tell you that closing your eyes and hoping that a bad problem goes away is a very poor strategy. Life doesn’t work that way, no matter how unfair it all seems to be. Since 9/11, those of us who urge that Al Queda be smashed into the dust without mercy everywhere it exists, and that those regimes which give comfort to Al Queda be also confronted, have been increasingly marginalised. We are now portrayed as bellicose "war-mongers" – hell bent on setting the Arab Street on fire. We lack subtlety. In the States, a senior Democrat in the shape of Harry Reid declares the war in Iraq to be lost.  Al Queda declares Iraq as the front line in its battle to establish the global caliphate. So if we lose the war, what happens? If we retreat what will Al Queda do? The answer is simple – it expands and starts to come after us…   

You see, running away from these Islamic terrorists only encourages them. Seeking to find ways to negotiate with them only makes us look weak. Further there IS nothing to negotiate. They are probing to  find their way into our lands and when they come here they come to kill us. Nigeria, for example, is a happy training ground for AQ. Tens of thousands of Nigerians make their way into Britain every year – what chance an AQ cell gets through? And then what? – do we just wait for the inevitable atrocities that so motivate these followers of the ROP?

We are at war with militant Islam. We either destroy it or it will destroy us. I favour the former, but the MSM and the liberal left seem to favour some compromise in between. There is none. There was no compromise on 9/11, 7/7, Bali, Madrid. The war on militant Islam will only be won by us going on the offensive. The portents are ominous – it is as if Harry Reid sums up the elites view "We’ve lost". Then may God help us – because it doesn’t end it retreat, it ends in defeat, subjugation and the destruction of all we hold dear.

simply the best!

Here’s a Health unto Her Majesty!

Just Another Unrepresentative Extremist…

By ATWadmin On April 21st, 2007 at 8:53 am

There are certain subjects on ATW which seem guaranteed to generate (ahem) strong feelings. Some, such as Ulster, I stay out because I dont feel I have the knowledge to wade in properly. Others, however…

So here we have the Speaker of the Palestinian ‘Parliament’, one Ahmad Bahr, having a fireside chat with a congregation of Islamists. And explaining how he would rather like it if Allah would:

"…vanquish the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, vanquish the Americans and their supporters. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them all, down to the very last one."

Now normally when this kind of Dark Ages hatred for all things un-Islamic is expressed we are assured that the gentleman in question is an unrepresentative extremist – but this, boys and girls, is the Palestinian equivalent of that bluff, red-faced Mr Martin we have in our own domestic talking shop.

So, if we can keep it as polite as we did the BNP thread a few days ago, lets hear from our resident crew of ‘Go back to 1967 Borders and peace will reign’ types about this happy chappie’s views and how they think their beliefs about Palestinian intentions toward the Jews square with them. Or is the Speaker of the Palestinian Parliament just another unrepresentative extremist?

nhs23bt.gifYou know there is something very dysfunctional about our Health Service when up to 10,000 young doctors who are unable to find jobs in the NHS may be offered voluntary work overseas. This is part of a plan drawn up by NHS managers following the botched introduction of an online appointments system, which could leave thousands of junior doctors without training places this summer. The document, Maximising Employment Opportunities, confirmed that there was a 10,000 "excess of applicants for training posts over places".It said priority would be given to finding places for UK graduates and those from Europe. (Love the "and those from Europe" line – toadying to the EU even as there are no jobs for Brits).


Current estimates by the British Medical Association show that 34,250 doctors have applied for just 18,500 training posts in the UK. A simple law of supply and demand would indicate that we are producing far too many young British Doctors and that’s odd because in recent times I have spoken to several Doctors in the NHS and more than a few were clearly not British. These young doctors get into huge levels of debt to obtain their necessary training and then they find that the jobs they have trained for are not there! 

I don’t believe that Doctors should think they are guaranteed jobs, after all none of the rest of us are. But neither do I think that Government and NHS management are doing a good job by distorting the Labour market and destroying the normal rules of supply and demand. The NHS is run as a Stalinist bureaucracy that tries to insulate itself from reality. It’s a mess, tear it down and start again.

It’s interesting to consider what a modern day Trojan Horse looks like. Take the comments by Sir Anthony O’Reilly that if Northern Ireland’s prosperity is to be restored, its tax system must be overhauled in line with the Irish Republic.

The chief executive of Independent News & Media, which owns The Independent and the Belfast Telegraph, has said that the current tax system in Northern Ireland could prevent its economic growth. Sir Anthony said that, with a new Assembly and Executive about to take power in Belfast on 8 May, Northern Ireland had all the right ingredients to become a major growth market – "with the exception of tax". He repeated his call for a tax cut, saying: "The inflow of foreign investment has largely passed Northern Ireland by. I strongly believe that a reduction in corporation tax would go a long way to redress the balance and open new opportunities for the local economy."

Now then there are three ways at looking at this;

1. Self-interest; Were corporation Tax rates reduced in Northern Ireland, O’Reilly would make greater profits in those parts of his business empire  located here (or elsewhere in the UK), though I suspect he already makes enough.

2. Lobbying for others; With his high profile, O’Reilly is a man people listen to. It might well be he is merely expressing that which many other business people feel.  

3. Politicking; If Northern Ireland has a separate and lower rate of corporation tax than any other part of the UK, business investment will indeed flow in – at the expense of the rest of the UK. Would a UK Government allow this? I think not! However, if Northern Ireland was destined for unification with the Republic of Ireland, harmonising tax rates would be very logical. Might Sir Anthony be playing another agenda?

Here is a bit of a rare one, I find myself in full agreement with a member of the Green Party!  I note that Green Party MLA Brian Wilson has expressed concern that the new Stormont Executive could sanction "a bungalow blitz" in the countryside. He said most of his fellow assembly members are in favour of overturning the controversial ban on new homes in NI’s rural areas, and he fears this will lead to a "bungalow blitz" across the countryside, as town planning legislation is torn up at Stormont.

Brian is 100% right. Let me tell you that the political class can’t wait to overturn existing town planning legislation and allow farmers to flog off fields all over the place to get filthy lucre. Any environmental or aesthetic considerations will be ignored and a combination of powerful vested interest lobby groups – from Builders to Estate Agents to Farmers – will have a big smile on their fat-cat faces. It will be an instant victory for the lobby groups and I’m sure those who gain the planning permissions will remember who to vote for next time round. Meanwhile the bulldozers will pop up everywhere and the beauty of our green built will vanish. But hey – didn’t we all want our own politicians in charge? Isn’t it dandy to have locals in charge?
