My islam and yours.

You can be a virtue-signaling moral narcissist and get all exercised about Donald Trump’s executive order suspending visas from seven primarily Muslim countries for the next ninety days, but I have a question for you: what do we do about Islam?

You will note I say Islam and not some other euphemistic expression like radical Islam or Islamism or Islamofascism. Islam.

I know that disturbs you because chances are you live in a world where cultural relativism prevails and all religions — fusty old things that they are — are equal.

Well, it is so if you think so, but I will note again that at least one interested party — the current president of Egypt, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi — has declared bluntly that his religion is in dire need of a reformation. Chances are he knows more about Islam than you. He certainly does than me. Also, he lives in a hellacious region of the world dominated by that religion and its violent ideology.

He Said That? 2/1/17

From Lysander Spooner (1808-1887) American individualist anarchist, entrepreneur, political philosopher, abolitionist, supporter of the labor movement, and legal theorist of the nineteenth century, No Treason No. 1, (1867-1870):

The principle that the majority have a right to rule the minority, practically resolves all government into a mere contest between two bodies of men, as to which of them shall be masters, and which of them slaves; a contest, that—however bloody—can, in the nature of things, never be finally closed, so long as man refuses to be a slave.

Navy exercises in Persian Gulf Amid Iranian warnings

As political tensions between the U.S. and Iran simmer, the U.S. and four other allied navies on Tuesday kicked off a three-day maritime exercise in international waters abutting the Iranian shoreline.

The United Kingdom-led exercise, Unified Trident, comes on the heels of a White House executive order banning immigration to the U.S. from seven countries, including Iran. In response, the Iranian foreign ministry released a statement saying it would enact a reciprocal ban on American travel to the country, and added that it would “retaliate” against the U.S.

In remarks reported by Iranian new agencies Jan. 30, the head of the Iranian Navy, Rear Adm. Habibollah Sayyari, said he was aware of the upcoming allied exercise and warned against any incursion of the participating ships into Iranian territorial waters.

“We don’t care what is said by whom or what they do. For us, it is important to be so ready in our defensive capabilities to stand any threat at anywhere,” Mehr News Agency reported that Sayyari said. “Anybody who wishes to stage a war game within the limits of the free waters should follow the international law, and we do not allow anybody to get close to our waters and this is our red line.”

U.S. officials said there is no plan to enter Iranian territorial waters, internationally recognized as the region extending 12 nautical miles from a nation’s shoreline.

“This exercise is not directed toward any nation, but will demonstrate a combined commitment to an enduring presence and to regional stability,” U.S. Naval Forces Central Command spokesman Lt. Rick Chernitzer told Military.com in a statement. “Unified Trident will be conducted in accordance with international maritime laws, standards and norms.”

In the past 12 months, the Iranian Navy has provoked U.S. forces in the Persian Gulf in dozens of high-profile harassment incidents, an increase from previous years. Last August, the coastal patrol ship USS Squall fired warning shots at Iranian vessels in one of a series of close encounters with Iranian boats that took place within a week of each other.

During Unified Trident, which also will include participants from the French and Australian navies, a task force of allied ships will be faced with “a number of conventional and unconventional maritime and air threats” to ensure operational readiness and preparation for a variety of deployed military scenarios, according to a U.S. Navy release about the exercise.

The exercise “will span the international waters of the Arabian Gulf, incorporate all forms of maritime operations, reinforce relationships with partners and allies, maintain readiness and improve cooperation to ensure the free flow of commerce,” Chernitzer said.

Petition to reinstate a Colonel who questioned authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate 

A petition to reinstate a former US Army Lieutenant Colonel who questioned refused to be deployed because he questioned the authenticity of Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah’s birth certificate and his eligibility to hold the office of president based on a fraudulent document.

The petition was listed at the petitions section of WhiteHouse.gov on January 21, 2017. It reads:
The former Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin was a highly-decorated Army flight surgeon who questioned whether or not the orders he received from Obama were legitimate. Court-martialed, imprisoned, expelled from the Army and denied pay, pension and benefits, Terry was merely following his officer’s oath and constitutional duty. It is an outrage that this was allowed to happen. Obama refused to answer Terry’s letter and ended up producing a forged birth certificate. Terry who was a medical doctor is a valuable asset to the American military and the fact that his military chain of command and his congressional representatives allowed him to be court-martialed and run out of the army is an outrage for all Americans. This grave injustice needs to be addressed and corrected ASAP.
