Kansas City Retains Smoke On The Water Record!

I don’t know how I missed this, but hey, I rarely listen to this rock station, KYYS, so what do I know? (check out their Guinness World Record Update with lot’s of good links).

I heard the weatherman on the news talking about it last night, so I thought I’d check it out.

Germany apparently overestimated their original claim of 1803 guitarists. Kansas City underestimated. The 1683 was really 1,721.

“Stuttgart can kiss our American butts…”

Here, you can read the correspondence between Tanna at KYYS, and the Records Managers at The Guinness Book Of World Records.

I have no idea if my son knows. He’s been goofing off at his cousin’s house since the 4th of July.

For background, I blogged about it here, and here.

Your Friday Jihadi Update

I was trying to find something upbeat to write about; I really was. But there’s just an incredible amount of worrying news on the Jihadi front:

From The Canada Free Press we discover “Cyber Jihadist” Operating Freely From Canada’s Eastern Seaboard:

While world attention is on “cyber-jihadists” using the Internet to urge Muslims to wage holy war on non-believers, Canadian authorities should check out the Global Islamic Media Website.

Operating from pastoral Yarmouth, N.S., the Global Islamic Media Website is touted as an “al Qaeda media website”

In an era where suicide bombers are `graduating’ enmasse before being dispatched to western countries, it is chilling to know that sites such as the Global Islamic Website seems to operate with impunity.

Incredible to consider that in the U.S. websites such as the Washington-based MEMRI, which tracks and translates valuable information from the Jihadist front, has been banned from use at the office for government employees.

Canada seems to be a little behind other countries like Great Briton where 3 Jihadis were recently sentenced to serve 6 1/2 – 10 years in jail for engaging in “cyber Jihad” and encouraging others to kill non believers.

As of a few days ago, GE IT, JP Morgan Chase, Defense Finance and Accounting Services, and—the Federal Government—all are now banning access to Jihad Watch.

The same employees, blocked from MEMRI and Jihad Watch, however, can visit CAIR on line, read anything about Islam and even get the Arab news.

Wow. Just wow.

UPDATE:

It looks like the Jihad Watch ban was lifted today.

In The American Thinker, we have Islam’s Global War Against Christianity:

From Nigeria to Indonesia, Christians are under siege in virtually every single country in the Muslim world, the victims of countless acts of discrimination, depredation, brutality, and murder that are so widespread and systematic that it can rightfully be called the new Holocaust. This time, however, the perpetrators of this Holocaust aren’t wearing swastikas, but kufi skull caps and hijabs.

This is why I see red when some liberals try to claim that Christians are as much of a threat as Radical Islam is. It pisses me off to no end.

Some of the oldest Christian communities in the world are subject to relentless attack and teeter on the brink of extinction at the hands of the “Religion of Peace”: Palestinian Christians in Gaza and the West Bank; Assyrian, Syriac and Chaldean Christians in Iraq; Coptic Christians in Egypt; Evangelical and Orthodox Christians in Eastern Ethiopia and Eritrea; Armenian Orthodox Christians in Turkey; and Maronite Christians in Lebanon.

Read the whole thing for the complete rundown of atrocities.

MEMRI has the April-May 2007 issue of the jihadi e-magazine Sada Al-Jihad, published by the Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF), which includes an article by Sheikh Hussein bin Mahmoud, titled “Let Them Find Ruthlessness in You” where he chastises fellow Jihadis for being too soft hearted:
Senior Al-Qaeda Sheikh: ‘May Allah Send Someone Who Will Kill Them Even More [Savagely]… Tear Their Hearts Out… Cut Their Heads Off, Tear Them Limb From Limb, and Shed Their Blood in Rivers’

Gad.

“When the emir and commander Abu Mus’ab Al-Zarqawi went out and slaughtered a few infidels, the [advocates of] tolerance and friendship had a fit. They jumped up, made threats and swore that this [act] runs counter to the spirit of [Islam]. How much suffering have these people and their supporters caused us! When we told them that Allah commanded to cut off the heads [of the enemies], they would say, ‘be mindful of Allah, and do not make things up,’ and we had to bring the Koran and show them these verses so that they would believe [us]. Some of them even turned the book over [and looked] at the cover to make sure that it really was the Koran. These [people] had read the Koran many times, but they had not read it [carefully]…”

“The Perfect Muslim is Gentle with His Fellow Believer and Harsh Towards His Enemy, the Infidel”

Can we stop calling it “The Religion of Peace”, now, by God!

And then there’s this from WND:

Based on current trends, a nuclear terrorist attack on the United States is more likely than not in the decade ahead,” says Graham Allison, director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and author of “Nuclear Terrorism: The Ultimate Preventable Catastrophe.” Allison, who has testified before Congress on the subject, says the illicit economy for narcotics and illegal alien trafficking “has built up a vast infrastructure that terrorists could exploit” in delivering a nuclear weapon to its target in the U.S.

I know, I know, WND writes about this frequently, and we all know it in the back of our minds, but still…nobody really wants to think about it, or talk about it.

Sorry to be “Debbie Downer”, today.
