Jihad: The Musical


Jihad the Musical

Romania, Romania!

Klezmer Conservatory Band
Rumania, Rumania

This basis for this post and any translations provided within brought to you courtesy of my contacts in Romania. All extraneous links by me:

Corneliu Vadim Tudor: Arch-Jew-hater, Hungarian-hater, Gypsy-hater, Slav-hater, etc., friend of Libya, "Palestine" and the Arab world, author of grovelling odes to former "Most Beloved Son of the People" Nicolae Ceausescu and "Mother of the Nation" Elena Ceausescu) has clung onto his position as Vice President of the Romanian Senate following political horse-trading and a deal struck with the very party which had been his sworn enemy, a party that had had seemed to promise light at the end of the sewer of the compromised politics of Romania's post-communist "transition".

Romanian politics is murky (and highly corrupt) at the best of times. The amazing thing is that he was propelled into the position of vice-president of the senate by the Democratic Liberal Party, the sworn enemies of Vadim and the Greater Romania Party. Basescu, President of Romania, is supposedly Vadim's #1 enemy....

As far as Vadim as Vice-president of the Romanian Senate goes- in fact, he was already Vice-president, the whole scandal erupted because the Liberal Democratic Party (Partidul Democrat - Liberal, PD-L) - which is supposedly anticommunist and against everything the Greater Romania Party stands for - cut a deal with Vadim that now enables him to cling on to the position. In other words, Vadim being Vice-President of the Romanian Senate is just business as usual as far as Romanian politics is concerned. What is shocking is that the PD-L, supposedly the only party with so much as an iota of integrity, are now cutting deals with Vadim. So it wasn't the case that he was elected to the position - he already occupied it.

In addition to the vicious anti-Semitic diatribes published by his party newspaper, Vadim was also notorious in the 90s for saying that he would organize public executions of intellectuals by machine gun in football stadiums if he came to power. In 2000, he lost a presidential run-off with "ex"-communist (in fact, not even "crypto"-communist) Ion Iliescu, who had organized the brutal repression of demonstrations against neo-communism in 1990, when the miners rampaged through Bucharest, causing many deaths and countless instances of grievous bodily harm.

In 2000, even those who had been victims of Iliescu's repression preferred to vote for him in order to prevent Vadim becoming president. Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel who was born in Romania, returned his Star of Romania (the country's highest honor) when President Ion Iliescu awarded the same decoration to Vadim Tudor shortly before leaving office. Vadim's Star of Romania was later withdrawn (the first time the decoration has ever been withdrawn) when Traian Basescu became president.

The above video is from a news report on how Vadim and his henchmen disrupted the speech to a joint assembly of the Romanian Parliament and Senate on 18 December 2006 in which President Basescu officially condemned the former communist regime as "criminal and illegitimate"

From a pro-Vadim bio:
His party's doctrine is that of the study, cognition and dissemination of the Romanian national values. He was often accused of xenophobia and Antisemitism. But in the last years he tempered his speech by adopting a pro-European and philo semitic position.

He was tried having many insult and calumny accusations because of his "Great Romania" written articles (signed with his real name and with his underground name- Alcibiade). Corneliu Vadim Tudor, along with The Great Romania Foundation initiated "The Christian Supper" humanitarian project
Why is this important? Why should you give one rat's ass what is going on in Romania? I'll tell you why - darkness is falling once again all over Europe, mah ferals. And it is falling fast. Like DeWinter in Belgium and LePen in France, the European Fascists are rising on the wings of jihad and multiculturalism. Putin struts around shirtless, shooting tigers, invading nations and tossing threats around with impunity. You'd better care what is happening in Europe.

European leaders take note, fascism is not dead

BTW there is zero on the web in English or any other language that I could find on Vadim's so called Great Romania Foundation or The Christian Supper humanitarian project.... but here's some other articles I did find:

Corneliu Vadim Tudor (b. November 28, 1949) is leader of the ultra-nationalist Greater Romania Party (Partidul România Mare).

During the reign of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu, Tudor was energetic in his praise (in prose and poetry) of the dictator. In 1989 he switched from communist to ultra-nationalist after Ceauşescu's fall and execution in 1989. In June 1990, with the approval and encouragement of Romanian leaders Ion Iliescu and Petre Roman, Tudor and his maître founded the national-communist weekly România Mare ("Great Romania"). România Mare has been sued for libel with stunning frequency, often for Tudor's own writings (which he usually - if not always - signs under a pseudonym).

Tudor regularly lauds Romania's former communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, and has pledged to fight "the transformation of Romania into a foreign colony".

Special targets for Tudor include Jews, whom he describes as "the source of all evil", the country's Hungarian minority and Gypsies whom he wishes to see enclosed in "ghettos".

In 1991, Time magazine described the Greater Romania Party as "a crude mixture of anti-Semitism, racism and nostalgia for the good old days of communism." To this, one ought to add ultra-nationalist, anti-Magyarist, and anti-gypsy.

Oddly, for an ultra-nationalist, Tudor supports Romania's entry into the European Union and wishes to remain in NATO. Al-Ahram has called him the "Jean-Marie Le Pen of the Carpathians,"[1]. Between 1993 and 1996, he assembled his party into the leftist "Red Quadrilateral" coalition.

Tudor's and his party's change from National-Communism to Ultra-Nationalism took place after 1996. In 1999, Dan Corneliu Hudici, a former reporter at România Mare, claimed there was a "secret blacklist" of dozens of politicians (including then-president Emil Constantinescu), journalists, and businessmen to be arrested if Tudor's party came to power.This allegation only increased his popularity.

Changing his convictions to "Christian-Democracy" as of 2004 Tudor supports Romania's entry into the European Union and sustains its presence in NATO. In 2003, Tudor dramatically changed his stated views of Jews, Judaism, and the Holocaust.

In a letter of February 1, 2004, he renounced certain earlier statements he had made as inappropriately anti-Semitic; further, he wrote, "I know that I was wrong to have denied the Holocaust in Romania, which happened between 1941 and 1944 under Antonescu's regime." Some have publicly questioned the sincerity and motivations of this change.


In the first round of the Romanian presidential elections on November 26,2000, Tudor finshed second with 28% of the vote. (Four years earlier, he had com in fifth.) However, nearly all other parties backed Ion Iliescu in the December 11 runoff, and Tudor only picked up five additional percentage points, while Iliescu surged from 36% to 67%.

Biographical information:

Born in Bucharest November 28, 1949 into a working-class family. His father was, at one time a Baptist priest, but he now professes the Romanian Orthodox religion.

Received a degree in Philosophy from the University of Bucharest in 1971

In 1975, he studied at the School for Reserve Officers in Bucharest

In 1978-1979 his scholarship was honored with a Herder prize, which allowed him to study history in Vienna

He worked as a journalist, editor, and poet under the communist regime; in the early 1970s, he edited the magazine România Libera ("Free Romania") and after 1975 was an editor at the Agerpress agency.

Has served as a Romanian Senator since 1992.

On September 25, 2001, Tudor gave up his parliamentary immunity from prosecution.
He has written at least 10 volumes of poetry and political commentary, at least one of which has been translated into French, English, and Arabic. He has also written for the stage. He is married with two children.

"This country [Romania]
could only be governed
through the mouth of a machine gun"

~Corneliu Vadim Tudor, 1998
(quoted by CNN, December 9, 2000)



This account, as I have said, deals with prisons in Romania, but the procedures used there have been and are used wherever the anti-humans have gained control. Identical procedures, together with such improvements as may have been suggested by their experiments and delights in Romania and other captive nations, will be used everywhere that their power is extended including, of course, the United States, if that nation reaches the goal toward which it is presently moving at a vertiginous speed.

If the Americans succumb, they will remember this book as a prophecy that was completely fulfilled.

Between Sacrifice and Suicide:
Petre Tutea (1902-1991) was a Romanian philosopher, imprisoned and tortured by the communists. During his time in prison, he developed a theory of "spiritual stupidity" or "metaphysical autism" by observing those who tortured him. Homo sovieticus is one sub-type of what Tutea calls "homo stultus", the embodiment of spiritual stupidity and hatred of God, the opposite of homo religiosus. Homo stultus "in his spiritual stupidity applies the logic of facts to the domain of mystery, remaining captive in this world in which he acts mechanically, like a 'spinning top'.

3 Wood: Slow Ride

FOGHAT ~ Slow Ride ~ 1978

The Federal Reserve is predicting slowing economic growth.

Economy slow no matter how you slice it, Fed
"WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - There are a lot of words to describe a slow economy and all of them were apt in August, according to the latest reading of economic conditions released Wednesday by the Federal Reserve.

"Many [Fed districts] described business conditions as 'weak,' 'soft,' or 'subdued,' the Fed's report, known as the Beige Book for the traditional color of its cover, found.

One recent bright spot for the economy - orders from overseas, showed hints of slowing. In response, firms are pulling back on their hiring plans, the report found. Good news was at a minimum.

The service sector was slowing and the factory sector was weak. The real estate sector shows no sign of bottoming out and lending activity was subdued, the Fed said. The report confirms the sense that the economy is on a downward path following the strong 3.3% growth rate in the April-June quarter."
Translation from Fed-speak: This is the Fed's way of signaling that there will be no further rate cuts in the near future, nor rate increases for that matter.

They will not sit back and watch what happens, sort of let the dust settle down a bit in the economy.
Don't get too alarmed over the dire predictions of slowing growth. We had a 3.3% growth rate in the 2nd quarter.

Anything over 2% means an increasing standard of living (you need 2% growth to keep up with population growth), so things seem to be actually doing well.
As I always say though, most of the results depends on the price of oil. If we have a stable or slightly dropping price of oil, the economy should rebound nicely.

Steely Dan ~ Black Friday


At 4:30AM on September 5, 1972, five Arab terrorists wearing track suits climbed the six & 1/2 foot fence surrounding the Olympic Village in Munich, Germany. Once inside, they were met by three others who had gained entrance with credentials. Within 24 hours, 11 Israelis, five terrorists, and a German policeman were dead.

The Munich operation was ordered by Yasser Arafat and carried out by Fatah, Arafat's faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

The mastermind of the massacre, Abu Daoud, admitted his role in his autobiography, Memoirs of a Palestinian Terrorist, published in 1999. Although this was said to be the first public acknowledgment that the PLO was behind Munich, Daoud himself essentially admitted this when under interrogation by Jordanian police in 1972. The Al-Dustur newspaper quoted him at the time as telling them:

"There is no such organization called Black September. Fatah announces its own operations under this name so that Fatah will not appear as the direct executor of the operation."

Oh fuck you. When the Israeli Christians start blowing your asses up let me know. Till then the masterflation of "Muslim and Christian" in that statement is designed to erase right and wrong. It is a vile statement, it is morally depraved.

Sherab Zangpo: The Problem of Evil ~ Chapter Two


PART TWO (of three)

And there will be a part three, that I have already written.
The first of the three parts can be found HERE.

But I can't publish the next part without a double premise that is much needed because today, unfortunately, the prejudices spread by nihilism live and blossom in everyone’s mind and the discussion of any major philosophical issue is inevitably going to clash with “ideas” that we consider too familiar and absolutely safe but that have been instead subtly manipulated and perverted.

Two points.

the penetration of the nihilist propaganda has gone so deep in everyone's mind that today any NON-nihilist framing of the "problem of evil" will cause (nearly) everybody to scream bloody murder.

the Light shining from the scriptural foundation of the single most important theoretical point of the Tradition concerning the "problem of evil" is so strong that anyone could at first run for shelter (for...a shadow, maybe; for the shadow, probably).

In other words: the "problem of evil" - as you know it from the "new common sense" with which nihilism has brainwashed everyone - claims to be strong (i.e., theoretically devastating for the Tradition itself), but the Traditional answer is so much stronger that I invite the Reader to use prudence.

A very clarifying example of the first of the two points is mostly evident in the last sixty years’ discussion about the Holocaust: it would be pointless and impossible to try here any synthesis of such debate but on the whole it must be highlighted that any strictly traditionalist position in the debate has been repeatedly labeled as “insensitive”.

For the “sensibility” created by the nihilist propaganda, a strictly traditionalist approach to the theological discussion about the Holocaust is “insensitive” because the traditionalist will firmly state that the Holocaust has been the work of satan (maybe even the worst work of satan ever) and, AS SUCH, it does NOT imply any discussion about “where was God ?”.

It is easy to understand that the subject of the debate is the cause of so much moral and personal suffering that the traditionalist approach sounds “cold”, too “rational”, and somewhat lacking of the due respect for the Victims.

It is not so, of course, but it is understandable that if the question of the debate about the Holocaust is “Why God didn’t break through the finite and didn’t save the Jews ?” the traditionalist position has been and is to reject the question; but that’s because the question is simply wrong, although dictated by a wonderful love and by suffering compassion.

Before you, dear Reader, approach the next part of this series about the “problem of evil”, you will have to reflect on this point and put it in perspective with what I have already written in the first part of the discussion.

The second point on which I want to call your attention is Genesis 44:10.
King James: “let it be according unto your words”

In my personal translation from the Hebrew text: “As per your words, so it will be”.

Now, this point too cannot be reduced to a short abstract, but it is you, gentle Reader, who will have to make the effort to remain faithful to the strategic Principle that the Scripture highlights here.

It is evident that the common nihilist perspective is here completely subverted and that this is a point of capital importance when discussing the “problem of evil”: any discussion that forgets this Principle will be doomed to absolute, complete, and pure meaninglessness, because it will subvert the Truth.

As you can see, both my premises, both these points, hinge on you, Reader: you must be able to remain absolutely faithful to a truthful idea of God: in both cases in fact, but more remarkably in the second, the idea of God remains the idea of Infinite and Perfect Love and the discussion of evil is directly, and even aggressively, moved to the human side of the problem. With the second point, the Principle dictates even more than that, it dictates the necessity to understand an idea of God whose Infinite Power HALTS at the border of Free Will. At least in the sense (see both the first and the third chapters of this same discussion) that it is no longer IMMEDIATELY present.

And Genesis 44:10 calls for a GREAT role of the “Free Will”.

This is probably the highest and most explicit Call that the Tradition ever transmitted.

The Infinite Love rains Infinite Miracles on all, but your words (in the full sense of Word, your true thoughts) will allow you to receive it or not, the true words of the world will decide if humans plunge from hell to hell or not.

And before you read in these sentences something that I didn’t say, I quote the Kotzker Rebbe who said : “If I had ten persons ready to come with me on top of the roof and ready to scream that God is Great, the Messiah would come NOW.”

There are secrets in this sentence, at least as many as in the original Principle.

I purposely use a provocative language to allow you a sound reflection and to unleash a serious debate.

With these two points in mind, and without forgetting what I said in the first article, you have a chance of reading the third part without being hindered by the usual nihilistic perspective that chokes any serious thinking.
~ Sherab Zangpo

LEONARD COHEN ~ If It Be Your Will

Thursday Afternoon Creature Feature



Dr. Bill Cortner (Herb Evans) is a brilliant surgeon who saves the life of a patient that his father Dr. Cortner (Bruce Brighton) is operating on. Bill uses one of the techniques that he has been researching in his studies on amputated limbs and the ability to keep them alive. The research Bill has used is controversial because the ethics involved include using body parts of expired patients.

Dr. Cortner appreciates his sons assistance but warns him to proceed carefully. As Bill meets up with his fiancée Jan Compton (Virginia Leith) to make plans for the weekend a call comes in from Kurt (Leslie Daniel), the doctor assisting Bill at his country house, that there is a problem in the basement. As Bill hurried drives toward the house with Jan by his side the car accidentally goes off the road and Jan is decapitated. Bill rushes the head of the woman to his country house and keeps it alive with the intention of killing a woman for her body and transplanting it onto Jans head.

One of Bills earlier experiments is being kept locked in the basement and becomes more violent as time proceeds. Jans surviving body part, her head resents being kept alive and communicates with the thing living in the closet, telling it to break out. As Bill searches for the perfect female body for Jans head, he meets several women, finally meeting up with a former friend Donna Williams (Lola Mason) whose scarred face Bill promises to eradicate with plastic surgery.

As Bill brings Donna back to the country house a startling reaction from the creature in the closet causes astounding results.

That stance is enshrined in the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) 1998 convention on combating international terrorism, which states that “peoples’ struggle including armed struggle against foreign occupation … shall not be considered a terrorist crime.”

CNN RUSSIA: Interview with a Vladpire ~ 8/28/08

If You Want Blood (You Got It)

This CNN interview with Bad Vlad has not yet been shown in full outside of Russia. Will CNN run it in America?

Interview with a Vladpire Part I:
In this part:

1. Who gave an order, Medvedev or Putin?

2. Was this conflict a demonstration of power?

3. What is the prehistory of Ossetia vs. Georgia, Abkhazia vs. Georgia relations.

4. Do we encroach on Georgia sovereignty?

5. Can you give any guarantees to other countries? Incorrectly posed question.

6. Chronology of the conflict. Who started it and what was the order of events.

7. We hoped that US administration will interfere and stop Georgia.

Interview with a Vladpire Part II:

8. How Georgia bombed Dzhava and Russian peacekeepers.

9. Who attacked whom.

10. Does the fact, that US-president was not able to keep Georgia from aggression, affect your mutual relations?

11. Even in the times of Cold War we always avoided direct confrontation between our servicemen. Now we have reasons to conjecture that US military men were present on the battlefield during military operations.

12. This would mean an internal political dimension for the US.

13. Did some persons in the US provoke this conflict?

14. Middle East, Afghanistan, Iraq, economy, mortgage - need for a small victorious war - otherwise portray Russia as aggressor.

15. Are you afraid of sanctions?

16. What will be Russian answer to isolation?

17. What is our choice? Let them kill us in exchange of G8 membership?

18. This is not our ships near your coast, this is your ships near our coast. Is this what they call the "Russian threat"?

Interview with a Vladpire Part III:

19. Can Russia refuse to collaborate with their partners?

20. What about oil and gas supply?

Stalin acted ‘entirely rationally’ in executing and imprisoning millions of people in the Gulags, a controversial new Russian teaching manual claims.

Fifty-five years after the Soviet dictator died, the latest guide for teachers to promote patriotism among the Russian young said he did what he did to ensure the country’s modernisation.

The manual, titled A History of Russia, 1900-1945, will form the basis of a new state-approved text book for use in schools next year.It seems to follow an attempt backed by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to re-evaluate Stalin’s record in a more positive light.

Harramadan Greetings, Infidel!


Haram = Forbidden

Ramadan = Muslim religious observance that takes place during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, believed to be the month in which the Koran was revealed to Angel Gabriel which later was revealed to Mohammed

Therefore: Harramadan = Ramadan for the Infidel !

US hands over Anbar Province as Iraqi Sunnis begin Ramadan
The US military will hand over security control of Anbar, once the most explosive battlefield in Iraq, to local forces on Monday as Iraqi Sunnis begin observing the holy month of Ramadan.

Iraqi Sunnis begin observing Ramadan from Monday, followed by Shiites on Tuesday. Some locals were sceptical about the ability of Iraqi forces to maintain security in Anbar. "Our forces are not ready to take responsibility for the situation. I am sorry to say, but there is a lot of corruption in our security forces," said Thar Mohammed in Ramadi.

Sunni Arabs in Anbar were the first to turn against US forces after the toppling of Saddam Hussein's regime by US-led invasion forces in 2003, mounting a raging insurgency that tore through the world's most sophisticated military.[SNIP]

Around one third of US forces or 1,305 troops have been killed in Anbar which shares borders with Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Syria.

Presidential Message, Ramadan 2008

I send greetings to Muslims observing Ramadan in America and around the globe.

The holy month of Ramadan is a special time of prayer, fasting, and service. For Muslims, these days commemorate the revelation of God's word to the prophet Muhammad in the form of the Qur'an.

I thank the men and women of the Muslim community for their contributions to America.


Your love of family, and gratitude to God have strengthened the moral fabric of our country. Our Nation is stronger and more hopeful because of the generosity, talents, and compassion of our Muslim citizens.

Laura and I send our best wishes. Ramadan Mubarak.

Sunday, September 23, 2007:
In the first week of a special program during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, the U.S. military released 260 Iraqi detainees from U.S. prisons, the military said Wednesday, compelling each to take a pledge before an Iraqi judge not to engage in misconduct and requiring a family member or a friend to act as a guarantor who would face sanctions if the pledge is broken.

The initiative “is designed to deter detainees from engaging in misconduct after their release,” said a military statement released Sept. 13, at the start of the program. The released detainees “are tracked, and if they act outside the law, they are turned over to the Iraqi judicial system,” Rear Adm. Mark I. Fox, a U.S. military spokesman, told reporters in Baghdad last week.

The Ramadan program is part of a joint U.S.-Iraqi venture called Lion’s Paw, and it is intended to step up the normally slow pace of detainee releases, to between 50 and 80 Iraqis per day, until the holy month ends Oct. 13, according to the military announcement.
