The muslims decide who speaks at West Point

and they aggressively say the US law enforcement agencies have no right to monitor them.

At this point they control the US

They are going straight after the US MILITARY and the US LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES.

And with Hussein Obama in they are controlling the US military and law enforcement.

And of course they have the Soros "news" media working with them every step of the way.

Afghan soldier kills two U.S. soldiers

KABUL, Afghanistan, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- An Afghan soldier, apparently angry over the burning of Korans at a U.S. air base, fatally shot two U.S. troops and wounded four others, Afghan officials said.

The International Security Assistance Force said in a statement two military personnel were killed in eastern Afghanistan Thursday by "an individual wearing an Afghan National Army uniform" but didn't identify the troops' nationality.

CBS News said an Afghan official said the dead and wounded in the attack in the eastern province of Ningarhar were American. The official said the shooting seemed to be motivated by the burning of Korans at the Bagram Air Base north of Kabul, but did not elaborate.

Haji Mohammad Hassan, chief of Khugyani district in Ningarhar province, told CNN, "We don't know who started the shooting first and what kind of guns were used, but we have started our investigation to find out the details of the incident."

Fleeing: These surveillance photos show the three alleged bombers as they escaped their safehouse. Saeid Moradi, center, fled carrying two of the radio bombs


It was packed with ball bearings for maximum damage and had six magnets on the side, meaning it could be stuck to the underside of a car.

The inexpensive Chinese-made radio was also rigged by the Iranians with a standard American hand grenade pin and detonator that, when pulled, would have set the device off in about four and a half seconds, ABC News reported.






It's unclear how the bombs were brought into the country -- whether they were smuggled in covertly or taken in diplomatic satchels.


The plot against the Israelis was foiled a week ago when some of the explosives accidentally detonated at a safe house serving as a base of operations for Saeid Moradi and at least two other Iranian colleagues.

Moradi, bloody, allegedly fled the house with two bombs and tried to hail a taxi to escape the scene. When the cab driver wouldn't stop, he threw on bomb at the car, injuring four people on the street, according to Thai authorities.

He threw a second bomb at police when they arrived, but it bounced off a car and exploded near him - blowing off his own legs.

Moradi and two other Iranian nationals are in police custody and charged in connection with the botched attack. Officials have named three more, two men and a woman, who they are searching for.


ABC News reports that American and Israeli explosives experts say the bombs are strikingly similar to those used in two other attacks on Israeli targets outside the Middle East.





A bomb was found stuck to the underside of an Israeli diplomat's car in Tbilisi, Georgia. Within hours, an explosive attached to the car carrying an Israeli diplomat's wife blew up in New Dehli, India. The woman, her driver and two bystanders were injured in the attack.

The bombings are widely believed to be retaliation for explosions, believed to be the work of Israelis, that killed at least five of Iran's top nuclear scientists.

All of this comes at a time of mounting military tension between Iran and Israel. British and US officials have urged Israel not to unilaterally strike the Islamist republic.


However, officials are beginning to worry that Israel might send warplanes to bomb Iranian nuclear sites before the country can complete a reactor -- or worse, an atomic bomb.

Israeli warplanes are suspected of pre-emptively wiping out nuclear sites in both Iraq and Syria.

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said Thursday a U.S. apology to Afghan authorities for burned Qurans on a military base was "astonishing" and undeserved.

Gingrich lashed out at President Barack Obama for the formal apology after copies of the Muslim holy book were found burned in a garbage pit on a U.S. air field earlier in the week

Obama's apology was announced Thursday morning. A few hours later, news organizations reported that an Afghan soldier had killed two U.S. troops and wounded others in retaliation for the Quran burning.

Campaigning in Washington state, Gingrich said Afghan President Hamid Karzi owes the U.S. an apology for the shootings.

"There seems to be nothing that radical Islamists can do to get Barack Obama's attention in a negative way and he is consistently apologizing to people who do not deserve the apology of the president of the United States period," Gingrich said.

"And, candidly, if Hamid Karzai, the president of Afghanistan, doesn't feel like apologizing then we should say good bye and good luck, we don't need to be here risking our lives and wasting our money on somebody who doesn't care."

Even before Gingrich's comments, White House spokesman Jay Carney sought to counter any criticism of the president's apology.

"It is wholly appropriate, given the sensitivities to this issue, the understandable sensitivities," Carney told reporters traveling to Miami with the president on Air Force One. "His primary concern as commander in chief is the safety of the American men and women in Afghanistan, of our military and civilian personnel there. And it was absolutely the right thing to do."

Later Thursday, Gingrich planned to head to a rally across the border in Idaho, one of the 10 states that votes on March 6. He is also spending Friday in Washington state, which holds caucuses a week from Saturday.

"You are the last big event before Super Tuesday," he told a gathering of 600 Republicans in Kennewick, Wash. "You have a huge chance to change things."

Pakistani tribesmen shout slogans while burning the U.S. flag during an anti-U.S. rally in Landikotal, northwest Pakistan February 24, 2012. About 200 protesters gathered to march on the streets of Landikotal to condemn the burning of copies of the Koran at NATO's main base in Afghanistan on Tuesday.

    KABUL — Twelve people were killed on Friday in the bloodiest day yet in protests that have raged across Afghanistan over the desecration of copies of the Muslim holy book at a NATO military base with riot police and soldiers on high alert braced for more violence.

    The burning of the Korans at the Bagram compound earlier this week has deepened public mistrust of NATO forces struggling to stabilize Afghanistan before foreign combat troops withdraw in 2014.

Twelve people were killed on Friday in the bloodiest day yet in protests that have raged across Afghanistan over the desecration of copies of the Muslim holy book at a NATO military base with riot police and soldiers on high alert braced for more violence.





    Friday is a holy day and the official weekly holiday in Afghanistan and mosques in the capital drew large crowds, with police in pick-up trucks posted on nearby streets.

    Armed protesters took refuge in shops in the eastern part of the city, where they killed one demonstrator, said police at the scene. In another Kabul rally, police said they were unsure who fired the shots that killed a second protester.

    Seven more protesters were killed in the western province of Herat, two more in eastern Khost province and one in the relatively peaceful northern Baghlan province, health and local officials said. In Herat, around 500 men charged at the U.S. consulate.

    U.S. President Barack Obama had sent a letter to Karzai apologizing for the unintentional burning of the Korans at NATO’s main Bagram air base, north of Kabul, after Afghan laborers found charred copies while collecting rubbish.

    Muslims consider the Koran to be the literal word of God and treat each copy with deep reverence. Desecration is considered one of the worst forms of blasphemy.

    Afghanistan wants NATO to put those responsible on public trial.

    In neighbouring U.S. ally Pakistan, about 400 members of a hardline Islamist group staged protests. “If you burn the Koran, we will burn you,” they shouted.

    To Afghanistan’s west, Iranian cleric Ahmad Khatami said the U.S. had purposely burned the Korans. “These apologies are fake. The world should know that America is against Islam,” he said in a speech broadcast live on state radio.

    “It [the Koran burning] was not a mistake. It was an intentional move, done on purpose.”

    Most Westerners have been confined to their heavily fortified compounds, including at the sprawling U.S. embassy complex and other diplomatic missions, as protests that have killed a total of 23 people, including two U.S. soldiers, rolled into their fourth day. The embassy, in a message on the microblogging site Twitter, urged U.S. citizens to “please be safe out there” and expanded movement restrictions to relatively peaceful northern provinces, where large demonstrations also occurred Thursday, including the attempted storming of a Norwegian military base.

    The Taliban urged Afghan security forces Thursday to “turn their guns on the foreign infidel invaders” and repeatedly urged Afghans to kill, beat and capture NATO soldiers.

    Germany, which has the third-largest foreign presence in the NATO-led war, pulled out several weeks early of a small base in the northern Takhar province Friday over security concerns, a defense ministry spokesman said.

    Nato officers shot dead in Kabul




    The ministry was put in lock-down after the incident

    Two Nato officers have been killed in the interior ministry in the Afghan capital Kabul, coalition officials say.

    Nato said an "individual" had turned his gun on the officers and denied earlier reports he was a Westerner.

    Afghan security officials said those killed were an American colonel and major. Local media reports suggest the incident followed a "verbal clash".

    The incident comes amid five days of deadly protests over the burning of copies of the Koran by US soldiers.

    A British embassy spokesperson said all British civilians working as advisers for the Afghan government had now been withdrawn from ministries, in what was hoped would be a temporary measure.

    Taliban statement

    The interior ministry was put in lock-down after the shootings, officials said.

    The BBC's Orla Guerin in Kabul says eight shots were reported inside the building, which should be one of the safest in the capital, and that any Afghan who carried out the attack would have had the highest clearance.



    Angry protests erupted in Kunduz on Saturday over the Koran burnings

    Local media reports said the gunman was an Afghan policeman but this has not been confirmed.

    The Associated Press news agency quoted Pentagon press secretary George Little as saying the "assailant is unknown, and an aggressive search is under way to determine who is responsible".

    Isaf spokesman Brig Gen Carsten Jacobson told the BBC that Nato could not yet confirm the identity of those killed.

    He would also not be drawn on any link to the Koran protests.

    Gen Jacobson said: "We have seen an emotional week, we have seen a busy week - but it would be too early to say this incident was linked to what we have seen over the last days.

    "At the moment, it is too early to say what actually happened."

    Early reports suggest the two officers were shot in the ministry's command and control centre.

    The BBC's Bilal Sarwary in Kabul says this is where representatives of 34 provinces meet to plan security.

    He quotes sources as saying that Interior Minister Bismullah Khan was having a meeting with senior Western officials elsewhere in the building when the shooting took place.

    The Taliban said in a website statement that it carried out the attack in response to the Koran burnings.

    Obama apology

    Angry protests over the burning of the Korans continued on Saturday, with a UN compound in the city of Kunduz set alight.

    Four people were killed and dozens injured in clashes in the city, according to local doctors. Three more people were killed in the southern province of Logar.

    The governor's house in Laghman province also came under attack on Saturday and there were demonstrations in Paktia, Nangarhar and Sari Pul provinces.

    More than 20 have died since the protests began on Tuesday.

    On Friday Nato's Afghanistan commander Gen John Allen had appealed for calm.

    US personnel apparently inadvertently put the books into a rubbish incinerator at Bagram air base, near Kabul.

    US President Barack Obama has apologised for the Koran-burning incident.

    In a letter to his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai, Mr Obama said the books had been "unintentionally mishandled".

    Muslims consider the Koran the literal word of God and treat each book with deep reverence.

    Offended Muslim chokes atheist, and then ...

    You won't believe craziness caused by 'Zombie Muhammad'

    Published: 1 day ago

    A Muslim judge in Pennsylvania– who scolded a local atheist for offending Islam, called him a doofus and accused him of “using the First Amendment” to madden Muslims – dismissed harassment charges against the Muslim defendant who purportedly choked the atheist during a Halloween parade.

    District Judge Mark Martin brought a Quran to court and told the alleged victim, American Atheists’ Pennsylvania State Director Ernest Perce V, “I think you misinterpreted a couple of things. So before you start mocking somebody else’s religion, you might want to find out a little more about it. It kind of makes you look like a doofus.”

    The judge added, “I think our forefathers intended to use the First Amendment so we can speak with our mind, not to p— off other people and cultures – which is what you did.”

    Perce had worn a “zombie Muhammad” costume and proclaimed that he was the Prophet Muhammad risen from the dead at the Oct, 11, 2011, event in Mechanicsburg, Pa. A “zombie pope” was also featured in the parade that night.

    Now the Scranton Atheism Examiner reports that Perce could be arrested for posting audio of the judge scolding him for mocking Muhammad. According to report, the Muslim judge has threatened to hold him in contempt of court for releasing the recording. Perce has claimed he was given permission to post the audio.

    The Examiner reports that Perce said he posted the audio because the judge treated him unfairly and showed preferential treatment for the Muslim defendant.

    According to reports, the atheists were marching when Talaag Elbayomy, a Muslim, stormed out of the crowd and assaulted Perce, grabbing a sign around his neck and pulling until the strings choked him.

    The men caught the attention of a nearby police officer.

    Mechanicsburg Police Officer Bryan Curtis told Pennsylvania’s WHTM-TV, “Mr. Perce has the right to do what he did that evening, and the defendant in this case was wrong in what he did in confronting him.”

    He added, “I believe that I brought a case that showed proof beyond a reasonable doubt, and the case was dismissed, and I was disappointed.”

    Elbayomy – who said he believed it was illegal to mock Muhammad – was charged with harassment. He denied touching Perce at trial, but Officer Curtis said Elbayomy admitted grabbing Perce’s sign and beard the night of the incident.

    However, Judge Martin dismissed the charges and purportedly belittled the atheist victim.

    The following is an excerpt of the Muslim judge’s lecture in which he scolded Perce for offending Islam:

    Well, having had the benefit of having spent over two-and-a-half years in predominantly Muslim countries, I think I know a little bit about the faith of Islam. In fact, I have a copy of the Quran here, and I would challenge you, Sir, to show me where it says in the Quran that Muhammad arose and walked among the dead. I think you misinterpreted a couple of things. So before you start mocking somebody else’s religion, you might want to find out a little more about it. It kind of makes you look like a doofus. …

    In many other Muslim-speaking countries, err, excuse me, many Arabic-speaking countries, predominantly Muslim, something like this is definitely against the law there, in their society. In fact, it could be punished by death, and frequently is, in their society.

    Here in our society, we have a Constitution that gives us many rights, specifically First Amendment rights. It’s unfortunate that some people use the First Amendment to deliberately provoke others. I don’t think that’s what our forefathers intended. I think our forefathers intended to use the First Amendment so we can speak with our mind, not to p— off other people and cultures – which is what you did.

    I don’t think you’re aware, Sir, there’s a big difference between how Americans practice Christianity – I understand you’re an atheist – but see Islam is not just a religion. It’s their culture, their culture, their very essence, their very being. They pray five times a day toward Mecca. To be a good Muslim before you die, you have to make a pilgrimage to Mecca, unless you’re otherwise told you cannot because you’re too ill, too elderly, whatever, but you must make the attempt. Their greeting is ‘Salam alaikum, wa-laikum as-Salam,’ uh, ‘May God be with you.’

    Whenever it is very common, their language, when they’re speaking to each other, it’s very common for them to say, uh, Allah willing, this will happen. It’s, they’re so immersed in it. And what you’ve done is, you’ve completely trashed their essence, their being. They find it very, very, very offensive. I’m a Muslim. I find it offensive. I find what’s on the other side of this [sign] very offensive. (Editor’s note: Reverse of sign said, “Only Muhammad can rape America!) But you have that right, but you are way outside your bounds of First Amendment rights. …

    I’ve spent about seven years living in other countries. When we go to other countries, it’s not uncommon for people to refer to us as ‘ugly Americans.’ This is why we hear it referred to as ‘ugly Americans,’ because we’re so concerned about our own rights, we don’t care about other people’s rights. As long as we get our say, but we don’t care about the other people’s say.

    The judge later added, “Because there was not, it is not proven to me beyond a reasonable doubt that this defendant is guilty of harassment, therefore, I am going to dismiss the charge.”

    Carl Silverman of the Parading Atheists of Central Pennsylvania told WHTM-TV, “We understand that Muslims are extremely sensitive. But this is America, and you need to get over the sensitivity and take out your opposition in peaceful ways – not by attacking people physically.

    These two US Officers were shot and killed INSIDE the Afghani MINISTRY BUILDING ... That could only men it was an Afghan military member or police officer who shot them. Civilians don't just walk into a Ministry with a firearm ....... and start shooting up the place ....

    This was an execution, I imagine. Most likely carried out with knowledge of higher ranking government officials.
