Breaking: Attack on Israeli Embassy Mauritania

This is a breaking story...

There are reports of gunmen attacking the Israeli Embassy in the Islamic Republic of Mauritania. Mauritania is located on the western African coast.

According to the Jerusalem Post, six gunmen pulled up in front of the Embassy, shouted "Allah Akbar" and then began exchanging gunfire with Embassy guards. Haaretz is reporting that there were no Israeli casualties.

Original Report from MSNBC:
NOUAKCHOTT, Mauritania - Unidentified gunmen attacked the Israeli Embassy
in the Mauritanian capital Nouakchott early on Friday, wounding some people,
police and emergency services said.
A bar near the embassy, in the center of Nouakchott, was also hit by gunfire in the attack before the attackers fled, they said.

It came just weeks after the Lisbon-Dakar rally was cancelled due to fears of an armed Islamist threat in the West African country following two atacks in late December in which four French tourists and some soldiers were killed


Another Al-Qaeda Leader Dead

Well, today might be a good day after all. The BBC is reporting that a Top Al-Qaeda leader was "capped" in a missle strike in Pakistan.

A senior al-Qaeda leader in Afghanistan, Abu Laith al-Libi, has been killed, senior Western counter-terrorism officials say.

News of Libi's death first emerged on a website used by Islamist groups. The website,, said Libi had "fallen as a martyr", the Reuters news agency reports.

US intelligence agencies have been investigating reports that a top al-Qaeda figure was killed in the Afghan-Pakistan border area this week. It follows a missile attack in Pakistan's North Waziristan area in which 12 militants were reported killed.
While Western counter-terrorism officials told the BBC they believed Libi to be dead, they would not discuss how he was killed.

Libi has appeared in a number of al-Qaeda videos. He is reported to be one of al-Qaeda's most senior field commanders in Afghanistan. Reports say he was also active across the border in the Waziristan region of Pakistan.

Berkeley City Council: Marines Unwelcome Intruders- UPDATED

I originally heard about this from Digger over at Digger's Realm (which, by the way, is an OUTSTANDING source of information and views on illegal immigration, but I digress). I have beon LIVID since I read his article.

According to The Daily Californian, the city of Berkeley, in the northern part of the Peoples Republic of California, has passed two resolutions against the US Marines.

Council members supported the two resolutions-one supporting anti-war protests and the other criticizing military recruitment practices-citing opposition to the war in Iraq, deceptive recruitment practices and the right to protest.

"By taking a stand against recruitment we are protecting the health and safety of our youth," said PhoeBe sorgen, a member of the Berkeley Peace and Justice Commission. "I see the protest as taking a proud and courageous stand."

Code Pink, a national anti-war grassroots organization, will be granted a parking spot for their regular Wednesday afternoon protests and will not need to apply for a sound permit for the next six months, under one resolution.

The other resolution more directly criticizes the presence of the center in Berkeley. The city manager was directed to send a letter to the U.S. Marine Corps saying they are "uninvited and unwelcome intruders" in the city.

In addition, the city attorney has been directed to investigate whether the city's anti-discrimination laws can be enforced at the center, based on the military's consideration of sexual orientation in hiring.
Local activists have proposed an initiative for the November 2008 elections that would require military recruiting centers to acquire a special use permit.

"The Marines ought to have better sense than to come here," [Councilmember Betty] Olds said

"The Marines ought to have better sense than to come here." HOW DARE THEY. Personally I think the US Government, IN THIS CASE ONLY, should use the power of eminent domain to turn the entire city into a USMC Field Training Facility.

"The Marines ought to have better sense than to come here." As my dear friend Merry pointed out, when I told her about this, perhaps the Marines should NOT go to Berkeley the next time there is a disaster. Let Berkeley find some other means of assistance.

"The Marines ought to have better sense than to come here." Perhaps the Military should NOT go to Berkeley to defend them against terrorist attack should one happen.

"The Marines ought to have better sense than to come here." Yes, I believe in Freedom of Speech... for the INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE. THIS is a GOVERNMENT ENTITY that is committing borderline treason!

By the way... PLEASE EXCERSISE YOUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Call, email, and write the Berkeley Clerks office. They like Free Speech so much there that I am sure they will not mind MILLIONS of phone calls, emails and letters shutting down thier city.

Al Qaeda's Funniest Home Videos

Hopefully, Al Qaeda is keeping track of these things for a Blooper Real or Funniest Home Videos

First, on Tuesday, a terrorist blew up himself and three buddies. He was putting on his bomb vest and.... Whoopsie!!!!!

Then Yesterday, another terrorist was leaving his apartment in Afghanistan to go kill himself and others. He started walking down the stairs and either he wasn't paying attention or maybe his robes were too long, or maybe his towel on his head came undone and fell over his eyes. He tripped going down the stairs and KABOOM!!!!! Unfortunately three bystanders outside on the street were injured.

You know, these terrorists just do the darnedest things!!!

DMartyr over at Al Salibiyyah has a great article about the number of times Homicide Bombers screw up! It is enjoyable to read how many times it happens.

Semler Resigns-- Funkhouser- "This position is not about Immigration"

Frances Semler (74), an embattled member of the Kansas City, Missouri Parks Board, finally threw in the towel on Monday night. For months she had been harassed in the media, and blasted by liberal activist groups, all because she was a member of the Minutemen.

KC Mayor Mark Funkhouser said he regretted her resignation and that he had refused an earlier resignation attempt by Semler. He also said there should NOT be a litmus test and the position on the Parks Board was "not about immigration," but he did add the the issue needs discussion.

Selmer said her decision was based on a lack of private support from the Mayor, citing things like the Mayor asking her not to attend the Minuteman Convention.

La Raza and the Southern "Christian" Leadership Conference had both urged boycotts of Kansas City and had cancelled their conventions that were scheduled for Kansas City.

The Minutemen on the other hand, decided they SHOULD host their convention in Kansas City.

My question is, what happened to freedom of speech and association? Has it completely given way to rule by minority opinion and political correctness?

Senator Thompson Withdraws

It's official. Senator Thompson has withdrawn from the campaign. Of course, if we enter into a brokered convention situation, he may yet emerge as the nominee...

However, in the mean time...
That leaves One newly conservative candidate (Romney).
Two Democrats (Huckabee and McCain).
And a bully from NYC who is anti-second amendment.

What in the WORLD are we supposed to do now?

Prince William Solo's (and recites Shepard's Prayer)

HRH Prince William took the controls for his first solo flight Wednesday while training with the RAF.

"God knows how somebody trusted me with an aircraft and my own life," he said of his flight in a propeller-driven trainer.

Then, he says he prayed a cleanned up version of "Shepard's Prayer"-- Alan Shepard's prayer that is...

"Then I was watching the runway getting closer and closer and thinking, please, please don't mess this up," William said Thursday.

Always A Conservative

I haven't posted in a while, partially due to chaos of changing jobs, dealling with viral meningitis, the holidays, computer issues and about a million and one other things. However, I will be returning to writing shortly (if not by later today).

I did though want to share the new Fred Thompson commercial with everyone and STRONGLY ENCOURGE people to contribute. Senator Thompson is not out of this yet. With the way things are going, the GOP Candidate may not be decided until the convention- and then it is ANYONE's game.

Any donation helps. Even $10 will go a long way to help elect a TRUE conservative. Click here to contribute.
