Iran humilates US2

Iran state television released images of the 10 U.S. sailors that the Islamic Republic captured yesterday. This is so disgusting. And for this the Obama administration apologized profusely. These photos are stomach churning. The American people ought to be demanding answers now.

Do we even know who we are anymore? Do you recognize this as America?

“Iran says seizure of U.S. boats a lesson to ‘troublemakers’ in Congress,” Reuters

DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran’s army chief said on Wednesday the seizure of two U.S. navy boats and their 10 sailors should be a lesson to members the U.S. Congress trying to impose new sanctions on Tehran.

“This incident in the Persian Gulf, which probably will not be the American forces’ last mistake in the region, should be a lesson to troublemakers in the U.S. Congress,” Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, head of Iran’s armed forces, was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

Obama’s legacy – the rise of the savage.

ABC News first reported the photos, which appeared after the sailors were released by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps Wednesday morning. (hat tip WFB)

Two small Navy boats and their crew were taken into custody Tuesday, Iran accusing them of drifting into Iranian territorial waters in the Persian Gulf.

The U.S. military confirmed the release of the naval personnel early Wednesday, saying that there was no indication that the sailors were harmed. The Navy said that it would investigate the circumstances surrounding the sailors’ detention. In images depicting their condition in captivity, the sailors appear to have had their boots, personal equipment, and weapons seized, and a female sailor appears to have been forced to wear a Muslim headscarf.

The sailors and their boats were apprehended when traveling from Kuwait to Bahrain. While a defense official initially said that the crew would be “promptly” returned, Iran held the boats and their crew overnight.

Additional images also appear to show Iranian personnel sifting through the crew’s ammunition and weapons and viewing their documents.

Iran state television also released video of the moment of the soldiers’ arrest.

UPDATE: And Iran state TV showed a footage in which the commander of US sailors was made to apologize:

    We’re about to release $100 billion to the men who took these pictures. #Iran.’

    I do not believe the story we are being told. Not for one minute. Iran used this for propaganda and also probably exploited the boat technology. Last night during the State of the Union, Obama talked about a superior military, then why did the engines malfunction on both those boats? At first I thought it was just one boat with engine failure and I thought to myself the naval guys in the second boat could have towed the first boat. But heck they also both lost their ability to communicate? Cmon. Something stinks to high heaven with this story. Thank God our Sailors were released, but Iran has our technology and took the time to embarrass us. Oh, an one more thing……where did they get the parts to get the Comms up and fix the boats?

    • ruthy k

      I think this is the nail in the coffin for most decent soldiers. It might be a great way to purge the military through voluntary leave. Of course Russia and Iran,allied w/ one another,ISIS and EU now know clearly that the US is of absolutely no consequence and are celebrating. What’s the strategy? To debase us, unhinge the population and tell our own that a/t goes? Is it to act docile in order to allow for bolder confrontations thereby pushing us into a crisis that would require severe measures? A state of wartime emergency? I wonder if the next election will be postponed so our despot can save us from a politically engineered global crisis? Slide of hand? Get people talking about this so that we don’t care about/notice the refugees, illegals and criminals being set loose or the rights we are being stripped of? I feel as if the US is having extreme torture administered on it’s body while being stripped of her cloths for rape so that she’s blinded to the machete being sharpened. N/o is going to bother reporting about the rising crimes. When every alternative news site shares only one article with a similar headline then you know there are too many for us to stay focused enough to connect the dots. We will also collectively shut down and shut out the news to stay sane. All the while the weeds and thistles continue to choke out the rest of the garden at top rate.

          …spoken as a truly clueless, liberal dipsquirt who, in reality, doesn’t know her face from her arse about much of anything – particularly matters of this sort. Why are you here? In fact, why are you anywhere, wasting precious resources that thinking folks might be able to utilize in actually furthering our country’s climb out of the cesspool of sorriness that your zombified ilk hath thrown us into?

          Amelia is typical of the new unthinking, unsophisticated class of spoiled juvenile dolt that’s allowed to vote, putting a sociopath like Obama into power without so much as a thought of the larger picture.

          • Amelia Natoli

            And you’re a foolhardy, irrelevant blowhard who feels disenfranchised and is moaning about how the country is supposedly in the toilet. I think when Obama leaves office I’m going to miss the conspiracy theories- oh wait, he’s not leaving office because he’s a fascist dictator, right.

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Enjoy your time, soon the blowback will overturn your little kingdom.

            Think of President Trump. It’s coming.

            Any terrorist attack on the US helps Trump. Hillary is collapsing, Socialist Colonel Sanders? LOL!

Maybe she has some young children she can offer up!!! Excuse me now while I go throw up now!!

            His unconstitutional use of executive orders, makes him a dictator. Remember other dictators were elected too.

            EO’s are supposed to be instructions to executive branch subordinates in how to enforc the laws passed by Congress, not to effectively change the law, or to create new “law” entirely.

      • savethevolcanoes

        • ruthy k

          Time will tell. I’ll go or stay as I please, TY. Tell yourself what to do.

    • thomas

      I agree. I don’t think for one minute that both boats lost power, I think they purposely made their way into iranian waters.

      • farflung

        “Purposely?” Splain !

      • Kim Peto

        I agree.And I think this is being over sensationalized. If a boat made it’s way into our waters, we would do any differently?

        • SCREW SOCIALISM

          How about a US Navy vessel fire a rocket within 100 yards of an iranian vessel? Spook the bastard iranians.

          A little American muscle flexing.e

    • Qpid

      Funny, Iran’s boat looks like it was made by the same manufacturer of the US boat, just painted a different color. When are we going to wake up to the bs? Sanction’s on Iran but then go ahead and give them nuclear? WTF?

      • El Gato

        That’s not Iran’s boat, that’s the other US boat. Iran’s boats, some of them are off to the left.They are white, with a cannon on the bow.

    • the what in chief

      Agree – this story doesn’t make sense – unlikely that both boats would fail at the same time.

      How far were they from the mother ship? Why didn’t they get some help? What were they doing?

      Did they get their guns/equipment back?

      Let’s hear the rest of the story.

      Glad they got away. I’ll bet they were afraid they were going to be the stars of the next beheading video. The thought would have crossed my mind. Unless this was some kind of a prearranged setup. Could they have delivered a package of some kind to the Iranians? Anthing is possible with a traitor as tu.rd-in-chief.

      • El Gato

        They were about half way between Kuwait and Bahrain. If they were on course, as I suspect they were, point of closest approach would be about 150 miles from Kuwait City, and about 135+ from Bahrain. There probably wasn’t a mother ship any closer than one or other of those, if there was one at all, since both ends have good ports with facilities for servicing the boats and crews. They were redeploying from Kuwait to Bahrain.Don’t know if two other boats replaced them in Kuwait or not.

        If they were near Farsi Island they were just a little farther from either location but not much farther due to the geometry.They would have needed to be about 50 miles off course to be within a 12 mile limit of Farsi Island With two GPS plotters… and radar? … not FReaking likely.

  • karl59

    Obama has sold America out!!!!!!!!!

    • Karen Bracken

      No buddy. Americans have sold out their country. We sit back and allow this man and this Congress to destroy our country. But we surely have enough time to watch American Idol and football. Now sir. It is the American people that have destroyed this country. 50 years ago if a President like this was in the White House MILLIONS of Americans would be in DC pulling his skinny ass out into the street and all the members of Congress too. We have grown fat and lazy.

      • John Giametti

        How sad that what you say is true.Hillary and Hussein and their lack of principles isn’t the px.The px is they are only mirrors of American decadence and cowardice.

        • Underzog

          To some extent Hillary and Hussein do mirror American stupidity and cowardice. How could Obama be elected once? Let alone twice! Even the Germans did not vote Adolf Hitler into office. And the Russian had the Bolsheviks come in third place in the 1920 elections that the Soviet Union had (Russia’s last election for a long while).

        • savethevolcanoes

          I’d prefer to see Fascist Irans ayatollahs and revolutionary gestapo dead – and Obama waving goodbye as he heads back to Chicago.

          • El Gato

            He won’t go back to Chicago. It’ll be either Hawaii, or one of the Emirates, possibly Bahrain.

  • fulham2014

    THEY ARE TAKING THE PISS. As simple as that.

  • thomas

    as much as you don’t like this, this treatment by Iran of US military personnel is no different than how the US would have treated Iranians if they illegally entered US waters. Maybe they would have even treated them worse. It is protocol by all nations to strip the military persons of all their equipment, weapons, documents and have them with their hands clasped above their heads. This is SOP. US military have done this to others multiple times, why get angry when roles are reversed?

    • Comment_Book_Guy

      trader! you should be errested for treason against America.

Perhaps you should read my comment again, and this time sound it out when you read it so you can actually understand what I said.

          • Comment_Book_Guy

            no, YOUR making you’re self look dumb. Seriously, you’re comment doesn’t even make no sense at all ok. America is a country, it’s the A in USA in case you didn’t know which its ovious you didn’t ok. Maybe your the one whom should be reading comment’s again ok. Although you prolly still wont udnerstand anyway’s lol.

          1. The betrayal of allegiance toward one’s own country, especially by committing hostile acts against it or aiding its enemies in committing such acts.

          2. The betrayal of someone’s trust or confidence.

          • thomas

            So you like to copy and paste stuff that suits your argument? I never betray allegiance against my nation, however I have lost rust in the current ruling government. I have not broken trust, they have. So, according to this definition, the government is treasonous against its people.

    • Kim Peto

      100% agree. This is simply Iranian Propaganda, blown up even further by the media, providing the intended result of illiciting unnecessary fear of Muslims, other governments and Obama. AND YOU ALL ARE BUYING INTO IT….. Think about that for a minute.

          • Reagan40

            Scared of Moslem butchers, seriously Amelia? Here is an old Islamic poem:
            The mosques are our barracks, 
            The domes our helmets, 
            The minarets our spears, 
            The faithful our soldiers.
            A politician in Turkey recited that poem publicly and seditiously some years ago to fan hardline Islamic fervour amongst his listeners. He was imprisoned for it. His name was Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and he is now President of Turkey.

            The military metaphor, of soldiers, armies and fighting, has run through Islam from its war-ruled beginnings. Mohammed was a warlord who initiated surprise raids on unsuspecting villages and camel caravans, took female prisoners as sex-slaves, and beheaded six hundred unarmed captives. His followers were not paid: they had booty distributed to them, after one fifth was deducted for Mohammed, as their reward. A complete chapter of the Koran is entitled “Spoils of War”.

            With his armed followers Mohammed attacked and took Mecca, which is why – by force – it became Muslim. He took over for himself the lucrative market of pilgrims coming to the Ka’aba. When his followers asked, “What about us?” he told them to go and attack the infidel to exact tribute – jizya protection money – and if they do not pay kill them and take their property, with their wives and children as slaves to use or sell. This is enshrined in Islamic law in the Koran’s famous ninth chapter at verse 29:

            Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

            This is exactly what Islamic State has been doing in Iraq. The jizya for Christians was set at such an exorbitant level that they abandoned their houses and fled, being robbed at roadblocks as they left of what money and jewels they still had with them. Such is war. The wretched Yazidis, not being Christians or Jews, do not qualify as “People of the Book”. They were given only the option to convert or be killed. Many dropped everything and fled into the hills. This is Islam in action, Mohammed’s model.

            The awesome ninth chapter, or sura, of the Koran, “Sura At Tawba”, the one cited by the Woolwich killer, is the latest complete chapter. As such it overrides and ‘abrogates’ ALL the peaceful verses elsewhere in the Koran, because they are earlier. This sura, like the Koran itself, can be consulted online: it is well worth reading for its relentless hatred and violence. Anyone online can do so.
            Jihad
            Jihad is “warfare to establish the religion”, a communal obligation for all Muslims, says the Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller(o9.0). The Manual is a free download: anyone can consult it. It frequently cites the Koran. This is because, quite unlike the Bible, which is a guide in Europe, the Koran is part of Islamic law. Anjem Choudary makes clear:

            The Koran is full of, you know, jihad is the most talked about duty in the Koran … . Nothing else is mentioned more than the topic of fighting. You can’t say that Islam is a religion of peace, because Islam does not mean peace. Islam means submission. … There is a place for violence in Islam. There is a place for jihad in Islam.

            All Muslims have the obligation to support jihad, either by taking part in it, or by financial contributions. One eighth part of zakat, which is normally translated ‘alms’ to give it an old-fashioned charitable glow, is required by Islamic law to go to jihad. This is the reality of the many so-called ‘charities’ of Islam, some of which, unbelievably, receive taxpayer funds: they support jihad.
            Mosques
            It is the mosques that provide the base for jihad. Sam Solomon, former professor of Sharia law,explains:

            Every single mosque in the world, by definition, is modeled on the mosque of Muhammad in Medina … his Medina mosque, the first mosque, was a place where he gave judgments, where he decided who would be executed, where he instituted policy – domestic and military – where Jihad war strategies were designed. Consequently, it was a storage place for arms, a military training base, and was where troops were blessed and dispatched.

            As is self-evident, the military metaphor runs throughout. “Batallions” are one of the uses of mosques featured in the Muslim Brotherhood’s captured secret internal Explanatory Memorandum that sets out their “General Strategic Goal” (see “The Project”). Every mosque is a rabat, a garrison, a beachhead in the conquest of a territory. A mosque is a court, a school and a training place.

            A mosque is often called a ‘community centre’ as a disguise. It is a centre, all right: a centre for applying peer-pressure, to ‘influence’ a brother to bring his errant westernised daughter into line by force, or else suffer himself. Anyone who leaves Islam is to be killed. The killing is free of penalty “since it is killing someone who deserves to die” (Manual o8.4), and acts as a credit to gain paradise. The mosque is a centre for indoctrination by force: footage can be found online of imams striking their young pupils to discourage questions and force compliance. As Sam Solomon says, a mosque is NOTHING like a church.
            Supremacism
            The deliberate spreading of the network of mosques is part of the colonisation and subjugation instructed by Islam: “Fight and kill the infidel until Islam is the only governance”, says Koran 8:39. “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam never will it be accepted of him”, says Koran 3:85. Muslims are “the best of peoples raised up for mankind” (3:110). Non-Muslims, given the pejorative term kuffar, are “filth”, “the lowest of beasts” (8:22), “unclean” (9:28). Jews and Christians follow “remnant cults” of no validity (Manual, w.4), and are as “apes and pigs” (5:60), “the most despicable” (98:6). There really is not much doubt left. “We are at war”.

            Lol, cherry picker.

            You know peaceful Surah in Quran is way too abundant.

            And when it talks about fight, it’s all about self defense.

            Btw Cherry picking is so out of date sister,

            As if when atheists point out “evil verses” in New Testament (let alone OLD TESTAMENT)

            such as:

            Now, as for those enemies of mine who did not want me to be their king, bring them here and kill them in my presence!

            Do you think I came to bring PEACE on earth? NO, I tell you, but division.

            I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled

            Christians will jump out quick and scream. Don’t take out of context.

            And they will give you the story “ask for more slapping”

            That’s just so LOL.

            The only reason you’re whitewashing Islam is because you’re a Moslem by birth. I do understand that your situation is hopeless. But do you think that is why devote Moslems are killing people? I mean is the old testament the reason why Moslems are killing people? Is that what isis quote as they throw gays to their death and slaughter Christians?

          • Reagan40

            Terrorism DOES IN FACT have a religion, and it is ISLAM! Every day all we hear about and read about is Islam and its adherents’ terrorism, from the Chechens to China, from Gaza and Jerusalem, to ISIS and Paris , France and everywhere else where they have infested a host country and live among us as parasites, pretending that they are repulsed by the very terrorism which their Quran teaches them to perpetrate against non-Muslims, in order to fend off reprisals against Muslims. Now they are here! In the 1970’s there were less than 10,000 Muslims in the U.S.A. … Now there are almost 10,000,000 of them!

            In the beginning of islamic indoctrination, Muslims pray and give charity, but as they aspire to reach higher levels of Islamic knowledge and so called ‘spirituality’, they consciously choose the direction of Jihad. they learn to despise all that is not Islamic and hence, they dehumanize all those outside of Islam; the ‘infidel’, who rejects their so called ‘prophet’, Muhammed, who actually never prophesied anything, and all who will not accept their god, Allah, who is neither a loving god nor a merciful god.
            The Syrians are not refugees. If so, then according to International Law, they must seek refuge in the country closest to Syria…Turkey! NOT America! They are opportunists, not refugees! Keep them out of America!

            Hussein Barak Obama said that we MUST allow 200,000 Muslims into this country as an ‘initial’ first infestation of Islam. Obama said,”Protect people who are vulnerable.” WE are vulnerable! Keep Islam OUT OF AMERICA!!! Obama is un-American! He wants to ignite guilt in Americans’ hearts for wanting to save ourselves from Islam, but the Muslims are hell-bent on destroying us from within as a third column! 20 – 25% of Muslims world-wide want total Jihad against the USA; against the world, so as to establish a Caliphate and Sharia law; to eliminate everyone and everything that is not Muslim, not Islamic! With 1.3 Billion Muslims in the world, that equates to hundreds of millions of Muslims wanting and trying to exterminate us and our values and our way of life!

            Muslims infest our countries and destroy our societies and our infra-structure. They are parasites!

            Muslims are liars…ALL of them! The Muslims of Paris state “Nous sommes unis”…We are united. THEY ARE united as Muslims, not as French citizens! They pretend to care about the deaths and injuries of their victims, in order to protect themselves from reprisals, knowing that the liberal, leftist French, americans, Swedes, etc. will stand with them. However, the Muslims are allowed by the laws of their Koran to lie to, and to deceive non- Muslims to achieve their objectives. They are gloating and revel in the deaths and suffering of non-Muslims; of “infidels”. They hate our laws and demand to replace them with Sharia laws.

            It is NOT merely 2 people’s actions. Every day, all we hear and read about is the treachery of Islam!

            When negotiating peace with other cultures it’s a good idea to make sure that the words you are using mean the same thing. Most Muslims and Westerners want peace. But to Westerners peace means co-existence. To Muslims, peace means the end of your existence.

            Ideas carry heavy cultural baggage. Peace in the West summons up images of Armistice Day, of the Christmas Truce of WW1 in which French, German and English soldiers could share meals and play soccer together. It carries with it the subversive idea that both sides realize the war isn’t worth fighting.

            Such a subversive idea has no place in Islam. The Jihad is at the heart of Islam. To question the holy war is to also question the faith. When war is religion then peace through setting aside war is heresy. 

            The Western idea of peace is a wholly alien one to Islam. In Islam, peace does not come from men transcending their differences, but from destroying men who think and live differently. That is the function of the religious police of our allied “moderate Muslim” countries who seek out the practice of other religions and other ways of living in places like Saudi Arabia and suppress their practitioners.

            Islamic peace does not come from diversity, from accepting the existence of other nations, religions and peoples, but from unity through Islam and eliminating as many differences as possible. If Islam is the source of peace, then all that which is “not Islam” is the cause of war.

            Kill the Jews. Kill the Christians. Then there will be peace.

            The Islamic idea of peace was aptly expressed by Zehaf-Bibeau and our anonymous Jerusalem Jihadist. It is not based on a recognition of the humanity of one’s fellow man, but on a rejection of their humanity.

            As Mohammed curtly put it in missives to the leaders of non-Muslim countries in the region, “Aslim, Taslam.” Convert to Islam and you’ll have peace. The same message has been dispatched by Muslim leaders today to popes and presidents. It’s a message of peace on the only terms that Islam allows.

            Islam is the religion of peace. For there to be peace, Islam must be supreme. Within the Islamic worldview, conflict is caused by the existence of dissent. The only way to achieve peace is by forcing the submission of every human being to the correct strain of Islam. 

            “Moderates” may agree to let Jews and Christians live as inferior second-class citizens if they submit to Muslims. “Extremists” will skip straight to raping and beheading them. And once that ugly business is done, there will be peace.

            Or there will be peace once the “moderates” and “extremists” have finished killing each other, once the Sunnis and Shiites have finished beheading each other, and once every single Muslim has finished slaughtering every other Muslim who in any way dissents from his understanding of Islam.

            That’s the brand of peace we’re seeing in Iraq and Syria today. Or the peace process between Israel and the Arab Muslims who were rebranded as “Palestinians” because it made them seem like a local flavor.

            Islam rejects the idea that mutual empathy should transcend conflict. Instead it believes that war should transcend humanity. Or as the Koran puts it, “Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that ye hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that ye love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, ye know not.”

            The Western tradition is biased toward the peace of co-existence. It applies the logic of armistice toward all areas of life leading to the championing of multiculturalism and immigration. Its siren song is John Lennon’s Imagine with its call for an end to borders, nations, religions and property. Its ideal of peace comes from the end of structure and separation between people. 

            The Islamic idea of peace, however, affirms a structure and separation based on the Koran. It believes that there will be peace when everyone is forced to live within the strictures of Islam. And therefore there can be no genuine peace with non-Muslims who do not submit to Islam.

            These two incompatible notions of peace continue to collide. 
            Imagine if French soldiers had clambered out to sing and play soccer only to be gunned down by German soldiers who had a fundamentally different idea of peace. This was actually how WW2 was shaped as the victorious side played by outdated rules while Nazi Germany, Japan and the USSR shifted to a thoroughly totalitarian mentality. 

            Munich was a disaster because Hitler was not the Kaiser. The other side was no longer willing to play by any rules, even in diplomatic negotiations, or to accept anything short of total victory. The Allies were forced to match their enemies in a ruthless war that saw entire cities destroyed.

            The Nazis and Communists were the products of years of indoctrination that taught them to see opponents as less than human and peace as being obtainable only through their destruction. Japan, which had a longer history of dehumanizing outsiders, proved to be an even tougher nut to crack.

            Islam has a history of over a thousand years of continuously dehumanizing non-Muslims and identifying peace and their enslavement as one and the same. It is impossible to live in peace with Muslims who think that there can be no peace as long as non-Muslims continue to live independent lives.

            In the Muslim worldview, war happens because non-Muslims exist. War is caused by the infidel, the disbeliever and the Muslim hypocrite who does not truly commit to the practice of Islam. 
            The Jihad purifies the world of non-Muslims; it eradicates the “moderate” Muslims who have been compromised by Western culture. It is a war of extermination against the un-Islamic.

            When Westerners propose peace, Muslims reject them as hypocrites for speaking of peace, but refusing to accept the only religion that can bring peace. They feel no obligation to honor any peace agreements since peace can only come from Islam and the Western rejection of Islam proves our deceitfulness and bad intentions. This dynamic is inherent in the Koran and the entire history of Islam.

            Islam does not obtain peace through peace, but through war. It seeks a world without conflict by killing anyone who might disagree with its totalitarian ideology. 

            Proposing the peace of co-existence to an ideology to which peace means its own supremacy is a foolish and deranged act. Our outreach to the Muslim world does not lack for a common language, but for common ideas. Both sides may speak of peace, but for one side peace really means war.

            Languages are not only made up of words, but of values. It is not enough to bring a dictionary to a negotiation if the two parties are reading from different moral and ethical traditions. Just because we translate “Salaam” as peace and agree that we both want peace does not mean that we have the same idea of what peace is.

          • Leela Kim

            Huh? Without Islam Jews would have been probably extinct today. Just ask Pharaoh to Hitler.

            Now let’s examine

            under
            -Pharaoh -> Jews were oppressed, expelled
            – Romans -> Jews were oppressed, expelled
            – Visigoth -> Jews were oppressed, expelled
            – Crusaders -> Jews were Massacred, expelled
            – Queen Isabelle -> Jews were massacred, expelled. PS: This queen with Pope committed Inqusitions
            – Hitler (German 67% protestant 33% catholic) -> Jews were massacred, expelled, imprisoned, rounded in open-air prison, confiscated

            – Umayyad -> Jews were protected
            – Cordoba Caliph -> Jews were protected. PS: the Jews reached their Golden Age
            – Saladdin -> Jews were protected. PS: The Jews were invited to go back to Jerusalem
            – Ottomans -> Jews were protected, PS: The Jews were invited to settle in Istanbul

            – Modern Israel > Muslims and Christians were oppressed, expelled (700.000 Palestinians), not allowed to go back (zero right of return), imprisoned, massacred (e.g 1.400 Palestinians were massacred within just 2 weeks during Cast Lead), rounded in an open open air prison (1,500,000 Muslims are under siege in the largest open air prison), confiscated (27,000 Palestinian homes have been demolished by Israel since 1967)

            The question is, why didn’t these Muslims rule didn’t follow Pharaoh, and then The Romans, The Visigoth, The Crusaders, Queen Isabella, Hitler in oppressing, killing, and expelling the Jews?

            # Prophet last sermon

            – Man is born from Adam (Adem) and Eve, and both of these parents, and all of humans, are made of dust, and in this right, no one person is better than the other.
            – All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab;

            # And in Quran

            – Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Final Day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve.” [Quran 2:62]
            – O People of the Book! Let us rally to a common formula TO BE BINDING on both us and you: That we worship none but God; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than God. (Surat Al ‘Imran, 64)

            “They are not all alike. Among the People of the Book there is a party who stand by their covenant; they recite the word of Allah in the hours of night and prostrate themselves before Him.”

          • Leela Kim

            And since you bring the argument about dhimmi, guess what, unlike Talmud which says
            The best of gentiles should be killed (TJ, Kid. 4:11, 66c) or the Biblical genocidal order to kill Amalekites, including their “women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys”

            Hadith says

            “If anyone wrongs a man with whom a covenant has been made, or curtails any right of his, or imposes on him more than he can bear, or takes anything from him without his ready agreement, I shall be his adversary on the day of resurrection.” (Sunan Abu Dawud, Hadith 3052. Classified as Sahih by Albani)

            The Prophet, may Allah bless him, said, “Whoever killed a Mu’ahid (a person who is granted the pledge of protection by the Muslims) shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise though its fragrance can be smelt at a distance of forty years (of traveling).” (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith 2930)

            “In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, most Beneficent. This is covenant of peace granted by the slave of Allah, the commander of the faithful ‘Umar to the people of Jerusalem. They are granted protection for their lives, their property, their churches, and their Crosses, in whatever condition they are. All of them are granted the same protection. No one will dwell in their churches, nor will they be destroyed and nothing will be reduced of their belongings. Nothing shall be taken from their Crosses or their property. There will be no compulsion on them regarding their religion, nor will any one of them be troubled.” (Tarikh al-Tabari 2/308)

            Umar (after he was stabbed), instructed (his would-be-successor) saying, “I urge him (i.e. the new Caliph) to take care of those non-Muslims who are under the protection of Allah and His Messenger in that he should observe the convention agreed upon with them, and fight on their behalf (to secure their safety) and he should not over-tax them beyond their capability.” (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith 2824)
            ~~
            Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve. (Quran)

            “But if the enemies incline towards peace, do you also incline towards peace. And trust in God! For He is the one who hears and knows all things.” (8:61)

            “And do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness.”[5:8]

    Accidents in international air or sea traffic, even those involving military vessels, generally require nations to assist the victims and keep hands off the stricken planes or ships, the experts said.

    “If a government plane or ship goes down within the territory of another country, it is entitled to sovereign immunity,” said Phillip Trimble, a UCLA professor of international law.

    Nikki Haley apologized to the Iranian jihadists last night for Obama.

    Haley: “Today, we live in a time of threats like few others in recent memory. During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation.”

    Republican “Establishment” leaders know their place when it come to Islam, sharia and the jihad.

    People have short memories when it comes to war. Iran is a large, powerful country with access to Russian weapons. A war would be long and bloody, and since the US has not decisively won a major war since 1946, unlikely to end well. Even if you won, you’d have troops occupying the country for decades.

    Cancel the agreement, withhold the aid, pressure them to release the sailors with threats of draconian sanctions if they don’t. Try diplomacy first.

    Work behind the scenes to stir up hatred between Tehran and Riyadh, as things are tense now. If those two vile theocracies destroy each other without spilling a drop of American or other NATO blood, all the better. Do it the smart way, not the poorly thought out knee jerk emotional way that created such messes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya.

    Once the war started between Iran and KSA, you may be sure that one of the first things they would do is to disable the Iranian nuclear programme.

  • Doctor Who?

    There are rumors that the Russians and Iranians have a weapon called a Khibiny generator that can generate an electronics pulse that fries electronics.
    Through an electric pulse pulse they can mess up the electronics on aircraft, ships and tanks.

      Sounds like a directed EMP. Maybe that’s how the US drone got downed over fascist iran.

      • Doctor Who?

        America spends more on its military than the next ten nations combined.
        Where is that money going??????
        To line the pockets of executives at Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrup Grumman?
        And the military is being used for social engineering and political correctness.
        The ONLY purpose of the US military is defense of the American nation and people.
        That is why the US has been stunned by the efficiency of the Russian military in Syria.

    Those boats appear to be Swedish-built CB90 fast assault craft. Each has twin V-8 diesel engines generating 1,256 hp each. The engines are connected to independent water jets. The boats can reach 40 mph fully armored. This is faster than any ocean-going military-grade boat. Diesel engines are relatively invulnerable to EMP because they have no ignition and only limited electronic controls. For two boats to be disabled at the same time is beyond imagining. We’re not getting the whole story.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      I would think that the US boats had working guns – warning shots, to stay away – radio for backup from fighters.

      This affair stinks like a rotting fish.

  • Ken Kroll

    I have two thoughts and will not drag it out with a detailed explanation. (1) they were testing the Iranians as to what they would do if we entered there waters. Or (2) unknowingly the crews were served up as bait to the Iranians in hopes that it would give the U.S. a reason to escalate our presence in hopes of a future invasion. If we cant get to Iran through Syria then lets just knock on the front door

    Has anybody in the comments section pointed out that the satire site preoccupiedterritory predicted all this EXACTLY about six days ago? Truth surpasses parody. Uncanny. http://www.preoccupiedterritory.com/for-next-trick-iran-to-directly-attack-us-get-away-with-it/

    Relevant passage from above:

    We’re looking, at a minimum, at a bombing, shelling, or rocket attack of some sort, probably against a military target in the Persian Gulf, but maybe even against an embassy somewhere else in the world,” offered Amjasgeddin Startid, a spokesman for the Ministry of Defense in Tehran. “Personally, I think we should board a US-flagged vessel, hold its crew captive, given them all wedgies, make them say they’re ‘fags,’ and share it all over social media.” Obama will refuse to order retaliation of any sort, promised Startid, because of his concern over maintaining the JCPOA agreement.

    Downright uncanny. Obama administration is beyond satire and parody, it’s hard to keep up.

    As is usual Obhammud exposes his ignorance of history and all things military. Like the North Vietnamese the Iranians milked the hostage situation for all it was worth for its propaganda value in an effort to manipulate world opinion. Unlike Nixon, Obhammud fell for it hook, line, and sinker. Remember Nixon’s bombing Haiphong and other targets to show he meant business?

          The forced apology can be undone by the now freed sailor telling fascist Iran that it can go to Hell in a chador –

          and the 10 sailors each burning flags of fascist Iran, pictures of khomeni/khameni and the rest of the ayatollahs – and posting the video on the Internet.

    Folks, most of us reading at your site appreciate your fearless willingness to tell hard truth in the face of a political/media culture dominated by incestuous liars, and we are grateful for that. But this story concerns SAILORS, not soldiers, as your copy & captions several times refer to them. (Such errors have regularly appeared in other reportage at other times on this site.) Please, ‘know your beat’ & show proper courtesy to the service branches when reporting on military matters. It is VERY simple: members of the Navy are SAILORS; of the Army, SOLDIERS; of the Air Force, AIRMEN; & Marines are always MARINES.

    Simple thought: when the Pentagon realized virtual time that our ships were being approached by enemy forces, why wasn’t a call made to Tehran stating the following: “if you go near our ships and sailors, you’ll be retrieving your ships and sailors from the bottom of the Strait; if we allow you to.”

    I don’t get what is so humiliating about these photos. If an Iranian military vessel entered our waters I suspect we would board them. Out of an abundance of caution, I’m sure our sailors would force them to kneel or lay facedown. I’m sure they’d also be searched and taken into custody until someone of sufficiently high enough rank decided what to be done with them. This entire incident could have been much worse. Our diplomats did their jobs, and Iran released the sailors within 24hrs. Next time, we’ll have to be more careful about entering their soverign territory and about making sure we have backup for our troops.

    Iran probably got all they could out of this. Got our boat technology. Got an apology and admission of wrongdoing by the US. They look good to the world. Ugh.

  • quest2quest

    Thank You IRAN…… Sorry out gun boat broke down inside your waters… Thank you, for giving the Boz a hot meal and fixing the engine. Thank you also for letting them go on they’er way and keeping them safe… I am sure they would have gotten lost at sea…… WE AMERICANS DO REMEMBER THE USS LIBERTY AND THE ATTACK ON THAT SHIP IN INTERNATIONAL WATER BY ISRAEL.

  • Underzog

    BNI has an interesting theory to all of this. How likely is it for two different boats to develop mechanical trouble? Obama might have arranged this with the Iranians ahead of time to make him look as if our current relationship with Iran is better because they released our sailors. If America and our soldiers were humiliated in the process of accomplishing Obama and Iran’s goals, then so what? Obama hates America and the military anyway. The military knows this from the rules of engagement Obama laid down for them.

    Who is changing the rules? My Guess our Commander and Chief!

    Military Code Of Conduct

    The Code of Conduct is a six-article code that provides general guidelines for the daily conduct of all United States military personnel. It is especially applicable at times of war or imprisonment.
    (1) I am an American, fighting in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense

    (2) I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never
    surrender the members of my command while they still have the means to
    resist

    (3) If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will
    make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

    (4) If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners.
    I will give no information or take part in any action which might be

    harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will
    obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me, and will back them up in
    every way

    (5) When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am required to give
    only my name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering
    further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written
    statements disloyal to my country and its allies or harmful to their cause.

    (6) I will never forget that I am an American, fighting for freedom,
    responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my
    country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America

  • Diane Sori

    Something to think about…10 Navy sailors released after being
    denegraded and shamed in Iranian custody for almost a day and tomorrow
    10 known terrorists will be released from GITMO and sent back to Middle
    East to create havoc again. A 10-for-10 trade with all the markings of a
    set-up as Obama spokesmouth Josh Ernest bloviates that this was exactly
    why the Iranian deal was made. So now we’re supposed to believe that
    this ‘very bad’ nuclear deal will have Iran playing nice in the sandbox
    when in reality they are rolling on the floor laughing their collective
    butts off as they have America in the cross hairs to do with as they
    please…and it’s all courtesy of the man whose allegiance they own.

Americans are the planet.s number one war mongers, they support terrorism to fight their middle eastern proxy wars, how dare you accuse Iran of something that would be normal protocol in a prisoner of war situation
