Ever wonder what it's like to be pinned down by sniper fire?

The creator of the CBC program Little Mosque on the Prairie asks
In response, Nawaz wondered why commentators never criticized the TV show, Seinfeld, which is about a New York Jewish comedian, for failing to deal with the contentious issue of Jewish settlements in Palestinian territory.
Ezra Levant has written an opinion piece for the Globe and Mail (It's the most viewed item currently on their Web site) detailing his appearance before a Canadian Human Rights investigator and his encounter with Human Rights officer Sheila McGovern. He reveals this little detail.
When she walked in, she seemed happy. With a smile, she reached out her hand to shake mine. I refused — to me, nothing could have been more incongruous. Would I warmly greet a police officer who arrested me as a suspect in a crime? Then why should I do so for a thought crime? This was not normal; I would not normalize it with the pleasantries of polite society.
This was not a high-school debating tournament where Human Rights Officer McGovern and I were equals, enjoying a shared interest in politics and publishing. I was there because I was compelled to be there by the government, and if I answered Officer McGovern's political questions unsatisfactorily, the government could fine me thousands of dollars and order me to publicly apologize for holding the wrong views.
That's just one of the many conspiracy theories in the latest pro-Ron Paul news article appearing in the indy media.
In our brave new post-9/11 world, how long can the Bush League allow such a gadfly to buzz around the body politic? The answer is simple: not long. In fact, Paul and his district are already living on borrowed time. Readers of my recent columns are familiar with my assertion that Ron Paul's congressional district has long been the primary target for the nuclear 9/11, or "9/11-2B." Working with Houston area law enforcement and media, Internet activists in the Houston area have anticipated and interdicted three different 911-2B attempts or rehearsals against BP, the nation's third largest refinery, in Paul's Texas City.
What more fitting Bush League payback could there be for the pain in the ass Ron Paul, a constant critic of the Global War and the Homeland State, than an "Al Qaeda" attack against his district?

She has claimed that her relationship with Kevin has been a stormy one, especially since she caught him masturbating in front of the computer while viewing photos of the heads of the neo-Nazi singing duo of Prussian Blue, now 15, pasted on the naked bodies of younger female children.
Now that Robert Spencer has come out against Vlaams Belang following a news report that the BNP participated in a summit in Antwerp with Vlaams Belang and other far-right European political parties, Gates of Vienna is now questioning the accuracy of the story from The Australian that said the BNP was part of the coalition.
Baron quotes from an email he received.
The VB, the Austrian FPÖ (which is no longer Haider’s party), the Alsatian regionalists and the Cologne city party. Only these four parties spoke at the press conference in Antwerp.
CaI aims to establish a network of local politicians from a municipal level. The cities involved in the network are cities with a strong counter-jihadist representation on the municipal level: Antwerp (VB), Vienna (FPÖ), Strasbourg (Alsace) and Cologne (Germany).
Cities with BNP or FN representation had not been invited and were not present because the group is pro-Israel as well as anti-Muslim.
I think that bloggers should be more careful in checking their sources when parroting what the MSM write. If not, they will soon lose all credibility — as is already the case with some blogs as far as I am concerned.
However, this stunning revelation isn't based on anything. It should be noted that this mystery emailer also says he was not at the event and is basing his research on ...
I just spent an hour googling “BNP Antwerp” and “BNP Antwerp Dewinter” trying to find other press reports than Australian ones about the “alliance” between VB and BNP. Found nothing.
Nothing at the BNP website either. You would imagine that the BNP would mention their “alliance” with the VB, wouldn’t you?
Since when are Australian MSM reports authoritative sources about Belgium? Australia!! No place can be further away from Antwerp.
However, I do not know how many people attended the meeting, which was a public presentation as well as an open press conference, and who they were. Bart Debie told me that there was an uninvited Brit, who might have told an Australian journalist that he was a BNP member.
I find it strange, however, that (as far as I know) the British press has not written anything about this. Doesn’t that strike you as odd?
Remember that the VB, with 25% of the Flemish electorate, is one of the most successful of the counterjihadist (and pro-Israeli) parties in Europe. It would be a major victory for the Jihadists if they can destroy the party. You are aware as well, I think, that Jihadists with Saudi money are currently buying stakes in the major MSM.
For all we know the Brit may have been an agent provocateur. Or he may have been a genuine BNP member who just came to have a look. Perhaps as a private person or perhaps on behalf of his party.
So in summary, someone who wasn't there is suggesting the BNP wasn't there based on googling, but someone told him there was a Brit there who was either an agent provocateur or a member of the BNP. Which do you think it is?
Meanwhile, the correction has not changed Spencer's opinion about Vlaams.
The BNP's not being part of this new group, however, does not contradict The Australian's report that the BNP was at the meeting. If they were there, it would be good for the VB to explain why the BNP was there, and why the BNP didn't join. It would also be good now for the Vlaams Belang to renounce and distinguish itself clearly from BNP-style racialism, if it indeed hopes to become a broad anti-jihad party. I hope it will do so.
In his latest blog posting, Ezra Levant is putting pressure on his former political allies and listing a number of questions the opposition Liberals should ask Conservative Justice Minister Rob Nicholson in question period.
Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Justice Minister. One of his staff, Dean Steacy of the Canadian Human Rights Commission, has admitted under oath that, as part of his job, he joined a neo-Nazi website called the "Stormfront", and posted racist remarks there. Can the Minister please explain why taxpayers' dollars are paying someone in his department to join neo-Nazi groups to spread propaganda?
Mr. Speaker, can the Minister tell us: was this a rogue act by a single hate-monger who infiltrated the human rights commission? Or did others at the commission approve of this race-baiting strategy, too? Did the minister himself know? Or did he turn a blind eye to state-sponsored bigotry in his own department?
As I blogged earlier this week, Levant (who I support, btw) is again dreaming in technicolour, just like his wish that Prime Minister Stephen Harper would shut down these commissions.
The Liberals are all about human rights and totally Dhimmified. Although he's not in Ottawa, Liberal strategist Warren Kinsella, who worked in former prime minister Jean Chretien's election war rooms, is indicative of this mindset.
In a blog posting for the National Post this week -- the same paper that Ezra comments for -- Kinsella said the following about Levant's publication of the Danish cartoons:
You might not find such things hateful or even hurtful, but many others do. Deeply, truly, honestly.
And, when all is said and done, what Muslims seek from the rest of us is not anything we do not already seek from them. Which is, mainly, a modicum of respect for the things they hold closest to their hearts.
I say they deserve that respect. And, if that makes me a censor, I'll wear that insult with pride.
I would urge Ezra to keep fighting the good fight, but to stop dreaming. The Liberals ain't gonna help him.
