US Beefing up Missile Defenses in Persian Gulf

I am not exactly sure what Obama is up to here, because I doubt very much that he would order a strike on the nuclear plants of Iran. Either way, the bottom line is that the Middle East continues to get more and more militarized. Maybe Obama just wants to protect his Sunni friends in Saudi Arabia from the Shiites of Iran.

US beefing up missile defenses in Persian Gulf.

WASHINGTON – As the Obama administration edges toward imposing tougher sanctions on Iran, it has begun upgrading its approach to defending its Persian Gulf allies against potential Iranian missile strikes, officials said Saturday.

The United States has quietly increased the capability of land-based Patriot defensive missiles in several Gulf Arab nations, and one military official said the Navy is beefing up the presence of ships capable of knocking down hostile missiles in flight.

The officials discussed aspects of the defensive strategy on condition of anonymity because some elements are classified.

The moves have been in the works for months and are part of a broader adjustment in the U.S. approach to missile defense, including in Europe and Asia. Details have not been publicly announced, in part because of diplomatic sensitivities in Gulf countries which worry about Iranian military capabilities but are cautious about acknowledging U.S. protection.

The administration will send a review of ballistic missile strategy to Congress on Monday that frames the larger shifts. Attention to defense of the Persian Gulf region, a focus on diffuse networks of sensors and weapons and cooperation with Russia are major elements of the study, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

Russia opposed Bush administration plans for a land-based missile defense site in Eastern Europe, and President Barack Obama’s decision to walk away from that plan last year was partly in pursuit of new capabilities that might hold greater promise and partly in deference to Russia.

One military official said the adjustments in the Gulf should be seen as prudent defensive measures designed to deter Iran from taking aggressive action in the region, more than as a signal that Washington expects Iran to retaliate for any additional sanctions.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton consulted with numerous allies during a visit to London this week. She told reporters that the evident failure of U.S. offers to engage Iran in negotiations over its nuclear program means the U.S. will now press for additional sanctions against the Iranian government.

Gen. David Petraeus, the U.S. Central Command chief who is responsible for U.S. military operations across the Middle East, mentioned in several recent public speeches one element of the defensive strategy in the Gulf: upgrading Patriot missile systems, which originally were deployed in the region to shoot down aircraft but now can hit missiles in flight.

In remarks at Georgetown Law School on Jan. 21, Petraeus said the U.S. now has eight Patriot missile batteries stationed in the Gulf region — two each in four countries. He did not name the countries, but Kuwait has long been known to have Patriots on its territory.

A military official said Saturday that the three other countries are the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain — which also hosts the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet headquarters — and Qatar, home to a modernized U.S. air operations center that has played a key role in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Russia: Almost $2 Billion in Arms to Libya

Not only has Russia promised to start up an Iranian nuclear reactor this year, they have also decided to arm Libya. It is hard to doubt which side Russia is on, in the inevitable showdown with the Islamic world.

Libya strikes arm deal with Russia

Libya has struck a deal to buy Russian arms worth almost two billion dollars, Russian news agencies quoted Vladimir Putin, the prime minister, as saying.

“Yesterday (Friday), a contract worth $1.8bn was signed. It does not only involve firearms”, Putin was quoted as saying by Ria Novosti and Interfax on Saturday.

The Russian prime minister did not specify the type of arms or military equipment involved in the deal.

But a Russian diplomatic source told Interfax on Tuesday, however, that Libya wanted to acquire 20 fighter planes, at least two S-300 air defence systems, several dozen T-90C tanks and other arms.

Close ties

Putin was speaking following a meeting with the head of the Izhmash factory, which manufactures Kalashnikov rifles.

Russian officials said early this week that negotiations were under way with Younes Jaber, the Libyan defence minister, in Moscow over the sale of Russian weapons.

Moscow and the North African state enjoyed close ties during the Cold War, and much of Libya’s arsenal was purchased from the Soviet Union in its last years.

Moscow and Tripoli have stepped up their contacts in recent years.

In 2008, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi visited the Russian capital in his first visit to Moscow since the 1980s.

Councilwoman: Violence is What Islam is all About

It is very well known that most of our politicians do not have the courage to speak the truth about Islam. But the list of those that do is slowly growing, and more are on the way. We are finally heading in the right direction my friends! Keep on speaking out!

Councilwoman accused of racist Muslim comment

Sid Garcia
(KABC) — A diverse group of Antelope Valley religious and political leaders are asking for Lancaster City Councilwoman Sherry Marquez, to apologize for what she wrote on her Facebook page about Muslims.

“Why this is of such great concern is that it isn’t something that was said to somebody or was overheard on an open microphone. It is because it went on the World Wide Web,” said Valerie Elliott of the Antelope Valley Interfaith Council.

A portion of what Marquez wrote on her Facebook page after reading a story about a Buffalo New York man accused of beheading his wife reads, “This is what the Muslim religion is all about. The beheadings, honor killings are just the beginning of what is to come in the U.S.A. We are told this is a small majority of Muslims in America, but it is truly what they are all about.”

“We need her apology to come from the heart, and that comes with education,” said Kamal Al-Khatib of the American Islamic Institute of A.V.

Marquez has her supporters. She was elected to the Lancaster City Council in 2008.

“Maybe she shouldn’t have commented on what she said. Maybe it was taken out of context.” said Ron Spears, a Lancaster resident. “It is just Facebook, and I’m sure she doesn’t want to offend any people. The more that I read about her, I’m sure she does not hate Muslim people in general.”

Marquez denied requests for interviews by Eyewitness News. Instead, she referred to a statement she read at a Tuesday night city council meeting.

“My reaction to that has now affected those and the city and to you. I apologize. I was, Saturday morning, and am still very disturbed every time I read about these horrific crimes against women and young girls. I will continue to voice my opinion and speak out about it,” she stated at the meeting.

While one group says that they’ll continue to ask Marquez to apologize to the Antelope Valley’s religious community, they have convinced the councilwoman to remove the statements from her Facebook page.

Short History Lesson of Islam in Europe~ Video

We all see that Islam is on the march again across Europe. (Well, some of us see it). This is not the first time that Islam has invaded Europe, and if Europe defeats Islam again, this time they have to never forget their past history with Islam. As this war is forever, and that is why they need to end all Muslim immigration forever.

Offensive jihad:

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”

Denmark to Curb use of Islamic Veils

It seems that we are on a seesaw here. A few days ago a political party in Germany stated that they will build an anti-Islamic center. Then yesterday, the President of France told the French that they should tolerate Islam. Today Denmark takes a jab at Islam, and it seems like things are changing for the better in Europe. Lets hope that they keep up fight!

Denmark to curb use of Islamic veils
Thursday, 28 Jan, 2010

COPENHAGEN: Denmark said Thursday it would limit the use in public of the face-covering burka and niqab veils worn by some Muslim women but stopped short of introducing a law banning the garments, AFP reported.

Stating the veils had “no place in Danish society,” the centre-right government said it would not enact a general ban but would allow schools, public authorities and companies to put in place their own restrictions.

It also said it would present a bill shortly making it illegal to force a woman to wear a burka or niqab and another bill requiring witnesses in courtrooms to lift their veil to identify themselves.

“The burka and the niqab have no place in Danish society and the government is determined to combat this view of humanity and women,” read a statement from the office of Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen.

It urged authorities to restrict the use of the veils “as much as possible.” Denmark has had tense relations with its Muslim minority following the publishing in 2005 of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed that were considered blasphemous and insulting by much of the Islamic world.

The minority government, which relies on the support of the far-right Danish People’s Party in passing legislation, said that a general ban on the burka and niqab veils however would violate Denmark’s constitution.

“Primary and high schools, universities and other learning institutes can legally require teachers and students to show their faces so that communication… can be open and fair,” the statement said.

Public sector employers will also be allowed to require their employees — teachers, home care, health care, daycare and social workers — to show their faces when interacting with people on the job.

Public sector employees will also be allowed to require a woman whose case is being examined by authorities “to lift her veil in order to see her reaction and assess her credibility.”

The government said public agencies and privately-run companies would be allowed to ask a woman to remove her veil “in order to confirm her identity” at border controls and when travelling on public transport.

A government-commissioned study by the University of Copenhagen published earlier this month claimed that “the use of the burka and niqab have major consequences for women.”

It said the veils “limit their access to education and employment, as well as their freedom and confine them to isolation and economic dependence” on men.

The government’s planned legislation would make forcing a woman to wear a burka or niqab an offence punishable by up to four years in prison.

Islam is Denmark’s second-biggest religion behind the Evangelical Lutheran Church, with more than 200,000 Muslims in the Scandinavian country, representing about 3.5 percent of the population of 5.5 million.
