    Yes, Pakistan’s A Hell-Hole, But So Is Iran! 

    We looked at Pakistan earlier this week, and it’s not a pretty sight…


    A Useful Reminder! How Bad Pakistan Truly Is!

    …but having praised Gatestone for reminding us of the evil essence of a country that leeches off the West while despising the source of its bail-outs…



    …let’s not forget about those evil ayatollahs in Tehran, who continue to impose the satanic system introduced by the old devil in the illustration below.



    There’s nothing wrong with capital punishment.

    In fact it is sorely missed as a fair and proper punishment in the UK, where numerous Sinn Fein IRA swine in Ulster ought to have been executed years ago…



    …and in France, where every Islamist beast convicted in the Bataclan terror case…

    Bug-Eye Doug’s Objective Analysis – Trump ‘Bullies And Blusters!’ 

    Got home from a search for my fave brand..




    …in time for a characteristic  bout of ‘Bug-Eye Doug’s Bare-Faced Bias’ – and the ex-CNN clown…


    Bug-Eye Doug Brays Fake News 


    British slang – A Herbert – Noun. An dull objectionable person. E.g. “He’s a real herbert, he watches the news and weather on TV all day.” https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/37663/what-is-the-meaning-of-the-term-herbert-in-british-slang

    Bug-Eyed Herbert Blames Trump Not Criminals 

    …was on top toxic form as he railed against Donald Trump for being mean to one of the most vicious, backward despotisms in the world.

    Like Macron and Red Fed Mogherini, Herbert chooses not to take the side of the civilised world in the latest strife, but Bug-Eye’s inflammatory rhetoric was way over the top.



    Trump, he howled, has a ‘one size fits all’ approach to international situations, ‘bully and bluster!’

    In a debate, that kind of stuff has its place  –  but this little leftist nyaff is paid to offer useful insights,not personal prejudice!

    France24 is a stranger to the principles of honest journalism.

    Even so, the sight and sound of this half-baked, imported American jackass shrilling his hatred of his own country’s elected head of state is embarrassing.

    Fanatical pinko creeps, the fans of Muppet Macron, are surely the only French tax-payers who see nothing wrong with this ranting dork drawing a fat salary from the state-subsidised propaganda channel.

    Hezbollah Is Untouchable, Says Mama’s Flunkey! 

    So Mama Stasi Merkel has refused point-blank to ban the ‘political wing’ of the Islamist terror gang Hezbollah?



    Hezbollah demonstrate their IslamoNazi ideology


    Even Theresa the Appeaser has done so, thus it’s intriguing to read Berlin’s excuse that a Merkel flunkey offers for not declaring the sectarian gangster group a ‘terrorist organisation.’

    Minister of State Niels Annen told newsmagazine Der Spiegel that the Iran-backed Shiite Islamist movement is a relevant factor in Lebanese society and part of the complex political landscape in the country…


    I would like to rail about this nonsense  – and it is emininently railable! – but it has far too many echoes of the shameful distinction drawn by Major and Blair and others between the two indelibly linked parts of the Sinn Fein/IRA murder gang…

     – .

    ..as if the terrorist scum in balaclavas were in any way less deserving of extirpation than the likes of Blood-Beast Adams and/or Murder McGuinness.

    They were one and the same!

    Nevertheless, because one such folly was perpetrated in the past, i.e. putting convicted terror psychos in positions of power over the people they tormented and butchered for years, heinous crimes for which neither Adams nor any of them were in any way repentant…

    adams murders

    …that demented decision should not be allowed to be adduced as justification for  the German coalition government’s pandering to the backward brutes who rule in Tehran.




    Iran, or rather the cruel ayatollahs who hold that country in bondage, are bad, not just for what they do to their own people but because they want to expand their oppressive ideology – and not just to little Lebanon.

    It was one of their Supreme Fuhrer’s henchmen, a certain Ayatollah Dezhkham, who openly boasted that, while America was their number-one enemy,  they were ‘fighting and awaiting the day when the banner of Islam will fly all over the planet… https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/121067/iran-ayatollah-death-america/

    So France, Britain, Australia, Canada AND Merkel’s Germany are targetted for sectarian supremacist aggression.

    I think it was Churchill in WW2 who told his people that the fight was against evil things. Sectarian supremacist aggression is an evil thing.

    There’s no excuse, given what we know of how the ayatollahs treat those already within the scope of their demonic power, for making false distinctions between the political and paramilitary evils threatening the civilised world.

      Using the law to confiscate guns mean law-abiding people are defenceless while criminals including terrorists will naturally break the law and get their hands on lethal wespons.

      Just like the IRA, they have no limits to their urge to power.
      Those fools, Major and Blair, thought handing over part of our country would satisfy Sinn Fein-IRA. The RUC was wound up and the republican terrorists that killed RUC officers got out of jail and into politics to lord it around Stormont
      Now they want to humble the British people in Ulster, forcing their bi-lingual law on us, even though there is nearly nobody speaks that language.

    Ayatollahs Unleash Sectarian Intolerance On Harmless Fashion Show! 

    I assume all those dishonest drips who stage sectarian clothing shows and mendaciously call them ‘Modest Fashion’ events are still persisting in their disgraceful misrepresentations…

    Offensive In Jakarta – Women Can Be Modest Without Being Sectarian!

    …but I only just noticed what the sectarians they set out to please actually got up to this month, and I feel obliged to share with you, in case you missed what Iran’s ‘modesty fans’ do to normal women who fall foul of their uptight sexist and tyrannical regime.



    Organisers of a fashion show in Iran were charged after videos of the event, which featured fantasy-inspired dresses and women not wearing hijabs, surfaced on social media. The outfits were considered by the public prosecutor to have strayed too far from traditional Islamic clothing.


    It’s pathetic, of course…


    …but equally it’s  unsurprising.

    An Iranian fashion label organised a private show in the high-end salon Ayneh Divan on March 1 in Lavasan, an affluent suburb of Tehran, sending women down the runway without hijabs, a violation of the country’s strict laws mandating that women appear in public with headscarves. 

    One might hope that the mendacious ‘modest’ mob in Western countries are vigorously protesting to the various Iran embassies about the way the benighted brutes who run the country have behaved…


    …but I won’t hold my breath waiting to hear about it.

    Tommy Book Ban? Remember When We Were Shocked By The Rushdie Affair? 


    Remember when that ignorant old savage in Tehran pronounced a ‘death sentence’ on Salman Rushdie, what, thirty five years ago, for no other reason than that the man had written a book the old bigot didn’t like?

    We were all horrified.

    We found it incredible that writing a book, publishing a book, about anything, could by any standards by deemed an outlaw activity.



    After all, we can buy Marx’s Das Kapital in most big bookshops, and his works bore, still bear, responsibility for more evil in the world than any other ‘intellectual’ enterprise.

    Yet now we have Amazon, which carries both Rushdie’s and Marx’s books, and Mein Kampf, BTW, refusing to sell copies of Tommy Robinson’s book.

    AND the arrogant little pillocks who serve as Amazon censors won’t even tell us WHY!

    Here’s A Swedish Joke – Albeit A Very Sick One!! 

    Sweden pushes feminist foreign policy in wake of #MeToo

    Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallström vowed to press ahead with gender equality and feminism in the annual foreign policy statement on Wednesday.

    Sweden pushes feminist foreign policy in wake of #MeToo



    This from a government which has never put forward ANY resolution at the UN  – or at any of its agencies -demanding that shariah law should be declared incompatible with membership therein.



    This from a government whose representatives went to visit the vile ayatollah dictatorship in Tehran, where brave women are tormented every day for refusing to be coerced into head-shrouding.

    What goes around comes around, and as the world stands by idly as good people struggling for liberty from shariah evil get put down, my mind conjured up some film footage I saw a few years after the Hungarian Revolution in 1956.

    It showed some of the Communist secret police, the AVO, getting their just deserts when brave freedom fighters battled their way into the Red torturers HQ in Budapest.

    But it was shocking to see this nonsense I found in National Review, an allegedly ‘conservative’ part of the media.

    Some AVO secret policemen were lynched; that was deplorable and deserving punishment…

    True, the author, John Sullivan, wrote that rubbish a year ago, in the midst of an otherwise sensible article praising the Hungarian Revolution, and he rightly condemns a Russian news piece which insulted the uprising as a ‘pogrom…

    …but even so.

    Those stinking Reds got what was coming to them, and to suggest the patriots who put them down deserved ‘punishment’ is outrageous.

    Communists, like Islamists, are bad. Communist Secret Police, like Islamist Secret Police, are the essence of evil, and no punishment is too frightful for their wickedness.

    One day, maybe not this day, or this year, but someday, the beasts who inflict shariah tyranny in Iran, and, one hopes, marxist tyranny in Cuba, will be strung up…

      I can remember Barry Goldwater’s proposals for supplying weapons etc. to resistance movements in the Soviet bloc and I can see no reason why we should not do the same for the forces fighting Islamist ideological dictators in Iran and Turkey.

      The exiled Shah is the kind of leader we could count on, a much better bet than the Mujahidin if popular support is important, which it is. It’s difficult to gauge how much monarchist feeling there is in Iran, but the hatred the ayatollahs express against him have had me speculating that they must fear him. .

      There are the Kurds too. America was unwise to let them down, because they would have been an ideal force to harness against both. Time alone will tell if we can regain their trust.

      It would be, as you recognize, crazy to entrust the job to the UN. As you say, they would probably make a mess of it and in any case, we should never acknowledge any supranational authority.

      Liberating those two countries is a morally defensible goal but if we made morality the guiding principle, then we would need to foment revolution in Communist China, and Saudi Arabia and dozens of countries besides, worthy causes, of course, but unrealistic.
      Promoting our own safety should be the basis of foreign policy. If moral rectitude coincides, all well and good, but secondary.

    An Unholy Alliance Against Self-Determination? 

    What have the US State Department, Boris Johnson and Iran’s backward and brutal ayatollahs got in common?

    An obdurate hostility towards self-determination.



     Sure, we don’t expect any better from Tehran’s benighted regime…



    ….but wasn’t it Boris who set himself up as champion of British self-determination last year in the Brexit campaign?

    And has not one American Secretary of State after another made incessant noises about every people having the right to choose its own government – except Tibet, of course.



    So what nation’s aspiration has brought these powerful forces together in hostility to freedom, a hostility shared, it might be added, by Turkey’s Erdolf.

    The Kurds!


    US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert -“We support a unified, stable and a federal Iraq.” For the Americans, the referendum, “would distract from urgent priorities and that be the defeat of ISIS.” 

    British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson remarked, “. Unilateral moves towards independence would not be in the interests of the people of Kurdistan Region, Iraq or of wider regional stability. 

    Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei commented, “Iran opposes holding talks of a referendum to partition Iraq and considers those who fuel the idea as opponents of Iraq’s independence.

    But just look at that map, above.

    The territory inhabited by Kurds is larger than Jordan, Israel, Lebanon and Syria, and at least as large as Iraq.

    Their conduct in the war against ISIS has been exemplary.

    The quotes come from a Kurdish news site, which also offers opinions, some of which make sense.

    …as the Kurds eye independence, they will slowly grasp that the international community will never settle on a propitious moment to secede from Iraq.

    Logically, therefore, there should be no hesitation in going ahead with the referendum in the Kurdish area within Iraq’s present frontiers.

    But the commentator, Barak Barli, then goes on to draw precisely the opposite conclusion…

    The key to success may lie in delaying the vote in exchange for ironclad guarantees that independence will be negotiated in the coming year.  


    But what value is there in such guarantees, ironclad or otherwise? Ankara and Tehran will under no circumstance approve independence.

    And even if London and Washington were to shift their position and show sympathy – unlikely – there’s NO way they’d be prepared to back up any guarantee with force of arms, given all they have gone through in the Middle East in recent decades.

    Go for it, Kurds!
