New Egyptian Prez demands we release the Blind Sheik

Muslim Brotherhood showing their true colors as their boy who is now the President of Egypt wants us to release the Blind Sheik:

"Egypt's President-elect Mohammed Morsi made a nod to his base in a speech on Friday when he pledged to seek the release of Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman from U.S. custody.

Sheik Abdel-Rahman, who is better known as the "blind sheik" is serving a life sentence at a federal penitentiary in North Carolina for his role in planning the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York City.

His detention has become a cause célèbre among hard-line Salafi Islamists whom Mr. Morsi counted on in his runoff against ex-regime loyalist Ahmed Shafiq.

Dozens of bearded Abdel-Rahman supporters, many in religious vestments, have slept outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo in a sit-in that has lasted the better part of a year. A full city block of downtown Cairo is festooned with banners bearing the blind sheik's image—bearded, capped with a red tarboosh and 1960s-era wayfarer sunglasses.

When Egyptian authorities charged seven U.S. citizens, including the son of a cabinet secretary, with violating laws on foreign funding for nongovernmental organizations in the spring, Sheik Abdel-Rahman's supporters lined up outside the courthouse calling for a prisoner swap.

For die-hard devotees, Mr. Morsi has taken up a cause that proves his revolutionary credentials: ousted President Hosni Mubarak did nothing to seek the sheik's release.

"It's wonderful. He did very good mentioning Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman," said Hesham el Ashry, a sheik supporter and a preacher. 'If America wants to be a real friend of the new Egyptian regime, they have to respond to the request of Morsi and release Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman...." Article

Another example of why the death penalty should never be abolished. When you kill these terrorists, you don't have to put up with this kind of crap. When they are dead, there is no hostage-taking, no media campaign, no nothing. They are d.e.a.d. Oh, and wait til these guys decide they want to tear up the peace treaty with Israel and have another war. This time the Israelis need to wipe out their army if they surround it in the desert again.

I suppose the MS Democratic Party will join with the new Egyptian president in calling for the blind Sheik's release, especially after a local Jackson, MS Muslim "Imam" gives the prayers at their meetings!

The Madison mosque sent up a puff of smoke. What could this mean?

He can play to his base all he wants; Egypt is too addicted to the largesse of Uncle Sam to be giving us any trouble on such an issue.

Let's not pretend that the Muslim Brotherhood is making significant policy calls in Egypt.

The military is still very much in the saddle.

The more I watch the Middle East, the more I am concerned that the powder keg has been kicked over and power is spilling out. Egypt's upheaval, change, whatever you want to call it, is extremely disturbing, especially with Turkey and Syria throwing stones.

The obvious attempt to bring us into this with the "blind" criminal is obvious. Let's hope the administration remembers this song and I don't mean the Ornithologiae classification.

Meanwhile, Fox has just announced that Iran is going to begin 'war games', blocking the Staits or H, this week. Of course all of them know the O won't budge before November and then he'll just board-up for an apology tour.

Pray tell what those of you who have commented above would do?

I don't like who Egypt elected either. He got only 25% of a vote in an election where less the half the population that could vote, did . But, he still won because the idiots who've enjoyed power so long 1) kept the population 50%+ illiterate and 2) couldn't get together behind a viable candidate.

Y'all want to send our overly extended military over there and rack up more debt( assuming we could borrow the money)?

Do you all think threats and insults have much clout when they can't be backed up?

What I'd do is not deem his demand worthy of a response because it ISN"T!

There is not much we can really do or should do. However, I would not just ignore it either.

OK, KF, but you see it stirs up angst to no purpose.

There are times when the American public should weigh in on foreign policy and foreign affairs, but most of the time, we should leave that to whichever party is power as MAYBE, just MAYBE they know more than we do and our " opinions" and " reactions" just give our enemies fodder.

According to NSA author James Bamford, the IAF was engaged in the massacre of EgpytianPOWs--a war crime-- in the Sinai when the USS Liberty reconaissance ship detected the mass killings. It was at that point Moshe Dayan ordered F-4 Phantom and Israeli Navy PT torpedo boat attacks on the Liberty, resulting in the deaths of thirty-four US Navy seamen. The Liberty remained afloat for the survivors to tell the tale, only with prosecution and court martialed if they told the truth of what really happened on that day 7JUNE1967. Admiral John McCain--Senator McCain's father- ordered junior officers to lie under oath in the Naval Board of Inquiry investigation to the incident.

Who were/are the REAL terrorists in the Middle East? Top of the list was Stern Gang assassin Yitzhak Shamir, who died last week at 96 years of age. His son, Yaihr Shamir, is now a mover and shaker in Mississippi politics, up there at the Golden Triangle partnering with the cow college engineers at Mississippi State to develop homicidal drones for action in the Middle East...beating plowshares into weapons of war.

Why don't you guys watch Iran's PressTV sometimes to get REAL fair and balanced reporting on the affairs in the Middle East.

Are you alluding to Kubrick's FMJ film?

Thanks for taking Tom a few notches down in your post from a few months back for the snarky comments that he had made of the Governor's famous cornpone political stump speeches. Tom has banned me from his blog.

Can you repost those eloquent words of the governor from that post? And to think that the governor's family roots run all way back to Smith County!

Had he not been felled by an assassin's bullet, he would've become POTUS in 1936.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
