Ahmet Yildiz: Victim of Turkey's first acknowledged gay honour killing?

HAT TIP: Mean Gene


In a corner of Istanbul today, the man who might be described as Turkey's gay poster boy will be buried – a victim, his friends believe, of the country's deepening friction between an increasingly liberal society and its entrenched conservative traditions. Ahmet Yildiz, 26, a physics student who represented his country at an international gay gathering in San Francisco last year, was shot leaving a cafe near the Bosphorus strait this week. Fatally wounded, the student tried to flee the attackers in his car, but lost control, crashed at the side of the road and died shortly afterwards in hospital. His friends believe Mr Yildiz was the victim of the country's first gay honour killing


Turkey was all but closed to the world until 1980 but its desire for European Union membership has imposed strains on a society formerly kept on a tight leash. As the notion of rights for minorities such as women and gays has blossomed, the country's civil society becomes more vibrant by the day. But the changes have brought a backlash from traditionalist circles wedded to the old regime. Bungled efforts by a religious-minded government to loosen the grip of Turkey's authoritarian version of secularism have triggered a court case aimed at shutting the ruling party down, with a verdict expected within a month.Against this backdrop, the issues of women's rights, sexuality and the place of religion in the public arena have been particularly contentious. Ahmet Yildiz's crime, his friends say, was to admit openly to his family that he was gay.


"The media ignores or laughs off violence against gays," says Buse Kilickaya, a member of the gay lobbying group Pink Life, adding that Ahmet Yildiz's death "risks being swept under the carpet and forgotten like other cases in the past". Turkey has a history of honour killings. A government survey earlier this year estimated that one person every week dies in Istanbul as a result of honour killings. It put the nationwide death toll at 220 in 2007. In the majority of cases, the victims are women, but Mr Yildiz's friends suspect he may be the first recorded victim of a homosexual honour killing."We've been trying to contact Ahmet's family since Wednesday, to get them to take responsibility for the funeral," one of the victim's friends said yesterday, standing outside the morgue where his body has been for three days. "There's no answer, and I don't think they are going to come." The refusal of families to bury their relatives is common after honour-related murders.


So-called "honour killings" continue to be a grim reality wherever conservative social mores resist the rule of law.In Turkey, a recent government study estimated that around 1,000 honour killings have been committed in the past five years. The victims are mostly young women, murdered by male relatives for transgressing chauvinistic social rules.

Women have been killed for having illicit affairs, talking to strangers, or even for being the victim of rape. Turkey's justice system has recently increased penalties for honour killings, and ended the practice of allowing murderers to claim family honour as an extenuating circumstance. However, getting a child relative to carry out the killing remains a horrifying way around the law.The problem is not confined to Turkey. The UN estimates that 5,000 honour killings take place globally every year, from Brazil to Pakistan to Britain.

Police estimate more than a dozen honour killings take place in the UK every year, such as the brutal rape and murder of 20-year-old Banaz Mahmod by her uncle and father in 2006, or the murder of Rukhsana Naz, strangled by her family because she wanted a divorce in 1999.Honour killings have not so far really targeted gay men, although in 2006 a wave of anti-gay killings took place in Iraq, carried out by fanatical Islamist militias. A Jordanian man was shot and wounded by his brother in 2004, apparently for being gay.



When Christians and Jews begin to honor kill homosexuals all you so smart masterflaters out there be sure and let me know now, ya hear?



Missing Links in the Land of Unhinged Hope

HaTikvah ~ "The Hope"
Israel's National Anthem

The words to Israel's national anthem were written in 1886 by Naphtali Herz Imber, an English poet originally from Bohemia. The melody was written by Samuel Cohen, an immigrant from Moldavia. Cohen actually based the melody on a musical theme found in Bedrich Smetana’s "Moldau".

As long as the Jewish spirit is yearning deep in the heart,

With eyes turned toward the East, looking toward Zion,

Then our hope - the two-thousand-year-old hope - will not be lost:

To be a free people in our land,

The land of Zion and Jerusalem.

I see a clinic full of cynics
Who want to twist the peoples' wrists
They're watching every move we make
We're all included on their list

The lunatics have taken over the asylum

Go nuclear the cowboy told us
And who am I to disagree
'Cos when the madman flips the switch
The nuclear will go for me

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
I've seen the faces of starvation

But i just can not see the points
'Cos there's so much food here today
That no one wants to take away

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
take away my right to choose
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
take away my dignity
Take these things away from me
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
take away my family
Take away the right to speak
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
take away my point of view
Take away my right to choose

Smiling Faces Sometimes

Undisputed Truth ~ Smiling Faces Sometimes (1971)

The US State Department this week filed an official protest with Israel over the eviction of a family of Arab squatters from a Jewish-owned property on the eastern side of Jerusalem, reported Ha'aretz.

Earlier this week, the Jerusalem District Court upheld an Ottoman-era deed to a property in the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah and ordered the Arab family that had been illegally occupying the building since the 1950s to vacate the premises.

Israel's Foreign Ministry responded to the US protest by noting that the affair is an internal judicial matter, and as such neither the ministry nor the government of a foreign nation has any right to interfere.

An Israeli government source told Ha'aretz that the US Consulate in Jerusalem, which operates independent of the US Embassy in Tel Aviv, has been tracking Jewish purchases of property in Arab-dominated neighborhoods in Jerusalem.

The consulate has been forwarding that data to the State Department, prompting regular protests over legitimate property purchases solely because they extend Jewish influence over the whole of Jerusalem.

The State Department has also taken to regularly complaining to the Israeli government over sporadic Jewish settler aggression against Palestinian Arabs in Judea and Samaria. No complaints were filed with the Palestinian Authority over daily stone throwing attacks by Palestinian Arab youth against Jewish motorists.

Earlier this week, Israeli diplomatic officials worried that increased US interference in minor incidents, including some that are internal judicial affairs, could damage relations between Jerusalem and Washington.

3 Wood & the Obamanable Oiliness of Drilling

Obama is against offshore drilling for oil, for reasons that I find silly. McCain is for it, by the way.

Is offshore drilling a viable solution to energy needs?

"LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) - When it comes to mapping out America's energy future, presumptive presidential nominees Barack Obama and John McCain agree on most issues except one: offshore oil drilling.

The subject, predictably, highlights the chasm between Democratic and Republican philosophy: Republican McCain wants to press forward with it while Democrat Obama believes it will yield few results at too high a price."

So what are Obama's objections to offshore drilling?

"It would have long-term consequences for our coastlines, but no short-term benefits since it would take at least 10 years to get any oil," Obama said in a June speech in Jacksonville, Fla.

The problem with Obama's objection is that it will also take about 10 years to produce oil if they drill in your back yard, too. And if you never get started, you are then still arguing about this 10 years from now.

Then there's this:

"Jim Sweeney, director of the Precourt Institute for Energy Efficiency at Stanford University, says that roughly 80% of untapped oil could be obtained via cross-drilling from areas already approved. Sweeney says there are other estimates that place the U.S. untapped reserve at 15 billion barrels. Offshore reserves could, at best, account for 1% of worldwide consumption but that wouldn't be for another 10 to 15 years.

"Needless to say, I'm not impressed," Sweeney said.

There could be more out there, however, according to others.

The U.S. Geological Survey reportedly believes there are roughly 18 billion barrels on the outer continental shelf of the U.S., while McCain says it's more like 21 billion barrels."

The reality is no one really knows how much oil is down there until the wells are sunk, cross drilling or otherwise. The only question in my mind is how high does the price of oil have to go before we drill for more of it, regardless of what Obama thinks. And if Obama gets elected, I think $140 a barrel oil will look cheap.

Jizya? I hardly even know ya!


Bishop Martin Jumoad

.- A Catholic bishop in the southern Philippines’ Basilan province has received a letter from self-described “Muslim warriors” possibly linked to Abu Sayyaf who are threatening him with harm if he does not convert to Islam or pay “Islamic taxes.” Further, authorities are seeking the return of three adults and two children, all Catholics, who were kidnapped in the same area this week.

On July 19 Bishop Martin Jumoad of Isabela sent a copy of the threatening letter to Church-run Radio Veritas in Quezon City, UCA News reports. Bishop Jumoad told UCA News that a student at Claret College in Isabela was told to give the letter to the school secretary who could pass it along to the bishop.

The writers of the letter claimed to be “Muslim warriors” who “don't follow any laws other than the Qur'an.” They say the bishop should convert to Islam or pay the Islamic tax, called a “jizya,” to their group in exchange for protecting him “in the place of Muslims.”

If the bishop refuses, the letter threatened, “force, weapons or war may be used” against him. Citing bombings in other Philippines cities, the letter said he should not feel safe even if protected by soldiers.

Bishop Jumoad was given two mobile cell phone numbers and told he had fifteen days to respond. The letter bore the two names “Puruji Indama” and “Nur Hassan J. Kallitut,” both of whom were titled “Mujahiddin.”

The letter was accompanied by a letterhead in the local dialect that said “Al-Harakatul Islamiyya.” The bishop said he has seen the phrase “Al-Harakatul” in kidnapping incidents in Basilan involving the terrorist group Abu Sayyaf.

He also reported that other Catholics have said they are receiving threatening letters. “Bishop, we are disoriented and we cannot sleep. What is our reaction to this?" they have reportedly said.

On July 21 the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines’’ CBCP News reported that three adults and two children who are members of a parish in Basilan had been kidnapped from a public jeep. Provincial administrator Talib A. Barahim on Tuesday told UCA News that no one has reported receiving a ransom demand.

Muslims who commit violence were rebuked at a joint conference between Catholic bishops and Muslim scholars on Monday in Manila, where Hamid Barra, the Muslim convener of the conference, underlined Islamic belief in the sacredness of life.

“It is God who gave life; he is the only one authorized to take life,” he said.

Barra, an Islamic law expert, explained that non-Muslims protected by an Islamic state are required to pay the jizya tax, which is used to support the needy, but no such payment is required in a non-Islamic state.

Oyvind Strommen:
The Flemish Nationalist pub De Leeuw van Vlaanderen has a sign saying "De beest" (the beast), with a very recognisable letter S. The Jewish Belgian organisation Forum der Joodse Organisaties are going to complain to the police, and in Joods Actueel - a Belgian Jewish magazine - the Antwerpen resident Nathan Ramet is quoted: "As a kid, I had to run around in Antwerp wearing the yellow star, the symbol on the wall of the cafe is scandalous". Bart De Wever of the (democratic) nationalist party NV-A has criticised the cafe`s action as "deplorable", and "compromising to the Flemish cause".

It is also covered in the French-language daily La Libre:

There the pub is described as "a brown pub, both literally and figuratively".

Superman vs The Mechanical Monsters

Superman: The Mechanical Monsters ~ 1941


An example of why the MSM is the NME

Allman Brothers ~ Whipping Post

The Washington Post did a total hit piece on this woman.

She's working on a new rule to change the way the government regulates workers' exposure to toxins

The Post, in the service of the unions and Dems, slammed her on page A1. wp...8072202838.html

You'll note the way the writer paints Misir as doing something out of the ordinary, as though she's trying to sneak through a new rule. Note also that they didn't call her for comment before publication.

The Left is about hit-and-run character assassination, and if you claim to be protecting workers, while also exposing the evils of the Bush administration, of course you're not bound by any rules.

My thinking is that it's not worth spending too much effort writing on the Post's comment board itself, because no one's going to sift through hundreds of posts to read them all.

It's better to get things like up on bigger blogs like Michelle Malkin or Free Republic.

Here are some key points to consider:.

1. Contrary to what the Post wrote, the new rule is not secret. It's a draft being reviewed by OMB, then everyone can comment on it once it's released.

2. No one knows what's in it, so the Post printed assumptions based on Deborah's previous comments about the existing process. The new rule will protect workers, but will make the process transparent, and most significantly, risk-based using science and actual facts, rather than faulty assumptions and emotion.

3. An abstract of the new rule can be found here ruleID=288573

4. They also smeared Deborah for previously being a White House ethics officer, insinuating that she must be a bad person because no one at the Bush White House is ethical. Every government agency has an ethics adviser to ensure compliance with ethics rules, such as accepting gifts, using government resources, speaking in front of certain groups, separating political activities from government service, etc. She was the screener who ensured compliance with ethics rules, and has never been faulted once for an incorrect ruling or advice; rather, she is ridiculed for her careful and ethical work.

The Left-wing bloggers have ripped her apart on this for the last year, even making fun of her last name (Misir is Hindu), usually writing that she was a White House "ethics adviser."

If you ever wonder why good people shy away from public service out of fear of being personally destroyed, here's another example. With her experience (she was previously an appellate lawyer for the Justice Department, arguing cases in front of Federal appellate courts), she could be in a private firm earning $300,000+/year; instead, she's in the trenches fighting for rational policies in industry, and being personally destroyed by the socialist network.

Here I am already, playing 6 degrees of separation with his name, sniffing around for clues that may telegraph that Templeton's motivations & agendas were nefarious.

I don't know that they were or were not yet. I will continue my searching and render a judgment in future post.

In any event, I hope my instinct is wrong in this case , and that Pat is right.
But I tend to doubt it. ;~)

John Templeton: To The Breach In The Wall

Who is John Templeton?

Like millions you may have seen this man without thought. Often on Wall Street shows, this soft spoken man gave his take on investing. He was rarely interrupted. As The Telegraph reports:

"John Marks Templeton was born on November 29 1912 at Winchester, Tennessee, the son of a small town lawyer and cotton merchant. Brought up strictly as a Presbyterian, aged 15 he became superintendent of his local Sunday school."

"Templeton boasted one of the longest and most successful track records on Wall Street. From its foundation in 1954, his Templeton Growth Fund grew at an astonishing rate of nearly 16 per cent a year until Templeton’s retirement in 1992, making it the top performing growth fund in the second half of the 20th century.A $100,000 stake invested in 1954, with distributions reinvested, would have grown to $55 million in 1999."

Thousands of Americans entrusted their saving to this man. His initial, average investor was a church going family from the Midwest that entrusted their savings to Templeton because they sensed he shared their religious values. They made an excellent choice, because as it turned out, he did. Templeton started each investors meeting with a prayer. He wrote or edited 10 books on Christianity, religion, and religious ethics in his lifetime.

As a young man he worked his way through Yale by winning cash prizes, scholarships, and creating a student newspaper that sold advertising. He graduated at the top of his class and became a Rhodes Scholar. His first rel investment came after a bit of study. He borrowed $10,000 and invested the money in 104 stocks that sold for less than a dollar a share, including 34 in bankruptcy. Within a few years he turn a profit on 100 of the investments and that commenced a long road to fortune. But he is known for much more. Templeton was an almost unequaled philanthropist. He started giving early in his life and never stopped.And because he directed the investments of his philanthropic foundations and grants, they thrived.

From The Telegraph:

In 1973 he inaugurated the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion, an annual award to remedy the Nobel Foundation’s omission of religion from its prizes.

A brilliant publicist, Templeton guaranteed that his prize would always be worth more than the Nobel, and arranged for the Duke of Edinburgh to present the award at Buckingham Palace, thus ensuring full press coverage.

From 1973, when it stood at £70,000, the prize money has risen to £820,000, making the Templeton Prize one of the world’s largest annual monetary awards.

Winners over the years have included Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Alexander Solzhenitzyn, the Reverend Dr Billy Graham, and Charles Colson, the Watergate-burglar-turned-minister. Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus and Jews also qualified to win the prize.

But this was only a drop in the ocean of Templeton’s philanthropy. He endowed university courses in spirituality and science, funded medical schools to run classes on healing and spirituality, and rewarded universities and individuals that upheld “traditional educational values”, schools that promoted “character development” and colleges that taught market economics.

There were also Templeton Prizes for “Inspiring Movies and TV” and for “Exemplary Papers in Humility Theology”.

The core purpose of the John Templeton Foundation is thus,

"The mission of the Foundation is to serve as a philanthropic catalyst for discovery in areas engaging life's biggest questions. These questions range from explorations into the laws of nature and the universe to questions on the nature of love, gratitude, forgiveness and creativity. Our philanthropic vision is derived from John Templeton's commitment to rigorous scientific research and related cutting-edge scholarship."

Templeton firmly believed, as do his prize winners, which include famous scientists from every discipline, that there would be a convergence of science and religion. That essentially the core of religion as he understood it, God, love, charity, and compassion would be scientifically realized and that science would be employed to better lives. He wanted the elements of religion as vigorously explored as any other scientific endeavor.

John Templeton died July 9, 2008, in the Bahamas, where he resided. Let us hope that the core purposes of his foundations remain as he wished, and not be subverted by academics into leftist, secular , anti-Western causes as have the other great foundations.

US arming Pakistan & paying MONSTROUS jizya for the last 7 years to boot


U.S. assistance and other payments to Pakistan have totaled $9.6 billion in the six budget years since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, according to the State Department.

The largest payout each year is for what the Bush administration calls "reimbursements" for Pakistan's help in fighting terrorism. Under that program, Pakistan submits claims — such as its costs for providing observations posts along the Afghan border or its costs for taking part in joint operations with the U.S. against al-Qaida.

The reimbursements amount to some $80 million a month or nearly $1 billion a year.

On top of those payments, the U.S. also gives Pakistan direct aid for humanitarian programs, economic development, military needs and so on — well over $700 million in each of the last two years.

3 Wood: Fannie and Freddie Meet Jesse and Barney

Jaco Pastorius ~ Fannie Mae

Jesse Jackson's corporate blackmail keeps on keeping on.

Fannie & Freddie Funded Jesse Jacksons Pet Projects

For many years people in the know have talked about Jesse Jackson's lucrative ability to get large donations for various corporations and other entities to his favorite causes. Jesse has long been considered a huge "rainmaker" in that he can get rain (money) to seeming fall out of the clear blue sky for the causes of his choice.

The long and the short of it is many such business entities have long ago learned that unless they write a fairly tasty check to Jesse's bidding, they somehow get labeled "racist" in public and then life gets very hard to live.

Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac are no exception, as the article shows. It's like paying protection money to the mob, a cost of business, only the mob is a little more honest about it.

Congress is close to a deal on supporting Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac.

"WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- In an wide-ranging response to the housing crisis, House lawmakers are preparing to vote Wednesday on a sweeping package to assist homeowners and prop up government sponsored mortgage buyers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Lawmakers have been working for months on a massive housing bill that's been given new urgency by the Bush administration's plan to backstop Fannie and Freddie, which have seen the values of their shares sink over concerns about their capital levels.

The House appears set to approve the housing bill and plan for Fannie and Freddie later Wednesday, with Senate approval later in the week. Shares of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were up Wednesday morning on news that approval for the bill was nearing."

This should put a "floor" in the market. One other thing to bear in mind is that the financial numbers have been negative for a while. Eventually you have positive numbers just because even a little improvement looks good by comparison. As the results start turning around, beware of over reacting to the positive news, just as some have over reacted to negative news.

Also, get ready for Obama to start taking credit for any improvement in the markets, claiming that the market is anticipating him winning in the fall. Clinton pulled this same con-game in 1992 with the help of the MSM.

Overcomers are those upon whose bodies the fire has no power (Daniel 3:27). Put them in the fiery furnace and they are not consumed, only refined, only purified. It only makes them that much more conformed to the image of the Fourth Man, the Son of God, the Lord Christ. The fire has no power over them because the fire has no power over Him, and there He is in the midst.

They do not seek the fiery furnace, but neither do they shrink from it when it comes. They do not ask for temptation and testing, but they are not afraid of it. They do not look for the devil behind every rock, but when they find him they demonstrate the preeminence of Christ over all things and call for his submission to Him. This is the Testimony of Jesus and the ministry of the Overcomers.

The Lord reveals Himself to us when we are at our end, when the fire burns the hottest. When we have reached the end of our ourselves then He intervenes. He is committed to us there in the fire, because we are committed to Him outside the fire.

As we have stood for His Will and His Kingdom in a state of universal compromise, darkness, and deception, so He will stand with us in our state of temptation, testing, and trial. Towards what end? That the preeminence we have been proclaiming may be demonstrated. He will rise to the occasion and prove Himself faithful. "There is no other God that can deliver after this sort (Daniel 3:29)."
