Nimoy/Spock Tribute (Old Spock/New Spock)

As a tribute to Leonard Nimoy (Neemoy) and his one real role – Mr Spock – I repost you THIS from May 2013. RIP and Live long and prosper on Vulcan, Leonard Spock. New Spock, Zachary Quinto (Into Darkness) vs Old Spock (Star Trek). Click here to watch the video Challenge between the intergenerational inter-galactic Spocks. By-the-way, the Bilbo songs refers to a naf music video Nimoy once shot (see that here http://youtu.be/XC73PHdQX04)

Nimoy grew up Jewish in New York.  His Vulcan hand salut is actually just the priestly blessing performed by Jewish Kohanim with both hands, and is commonly seen in mosaics in synagogues. Kinda like the Christian doxology ‘scout hand’ symbol.

Least We Forget (Helen Clark the War-Monger)

Helen Clark sent the SAS into Afghanistan, but if John Key sends troops to train and support our Allies against ISIS, the Left will have a hissy fit. This is because its never about the issues for the Left, but factionalism, and they are always on the ‘right’ side regardless of what they say or do.

Least we forget. 2004…

ANZAC vs ISIS. Are We Man Enough?

Screen shot 2015-02-23 at 6.05.47 PMI’m no blind nationalist, war-monger (I HATE war) or patriotic flag waver, but this image from 1914 is not quite the sense of geo-political duty and unity the Left are subscribing to right now. My fellow Cantabrian Charles Upham? Who’s he?

Anzacs fought the Nazis, and the imperial god-emperor Japanese, and the Communists, to make a safer world. But ISIS is “not our fight,” because we’ve become isolationist liberal cowards secure behind a security wall maintained by others.

The Left will attend in droves sentimental Gallipoli commemorations, tears welling up in their appropriated sad-eyes, while denying the spirit of courage and duty that entailed. Go the National Cabinet! Send our soldiers and do our bit alongside our Allies to roll back this pernicious evil. Because of delaying European and American action against Hitler, extra millions and millions (mainly Russians) died to end that totalitarian and polluted murderous human ideology.  Can you imagine if Hitler in his delusions had nuclear weapons at his control? He almost did.

United we stand, divided we fall.  We must do our bit, and join free open societies and any others who will fight (62 countries so far) to destroy ISIS who butcher innocent men, women and children. NZ must defend the evolved values that make western civilisation great and the world a better place than it has been in the past.

I have absolutely no doubt in my mind, that the NZ and Australian generations that went to World Wars I and II would have little hesitation leaping to stop ISIS’ barbaric crimes.  That we are equivocating demonstrates a modern weakness and cowardice that has crept in to generations since the 1940s and infected us with ease, ambivalence and amnesia about the consequences of past history unlearned.

And the Syrians Don’t Like Being Invaded…

Screen shot 2015-02-23 at 8.26.32 AMSee post below re Turkish Invasion of Syria overnight (22/2).

Turkey Invades Syria Overnight

Reuters reports…The Syrian government said overnight (NZ time) that a Turkish incursion into northern Syria was an act of “flagrant aggression” and that it would hold Ankara responsible for its repercussions.

In a statement read out on state television, Syria said the Turkish government had informed the Syrian consulate in Istanbul about the operation to relocate the tomb of a figure revered in Turkey, but had not awaited Syria’s agreement.

Turkey mounted the operation to extract about 40 soldiers who had been guarding the tomb of Suleyman Shah, grandfather of the founder of the Ottoman Empire which is on a site considered sovereign territory by Ankara.

Syria accuses Turkey of supporting insurgent groups that have seized control of wide areas of northern and eastern Syria, including the Islamic State militant group.

The Syrian government statement said the fact that Islamic STate had not attacked the tomb “confirmed the depth of the ties between the Turkish government and this terrorist organisation”.

In line with its hardline vision of Islam, Islamic State has blown up many tombs in areas under its control.

Syria said the operation was a violation of an agreement signed in 1921.

Turkey Invades Syria Overnight

M60 Turkish (US) Pattons standing off at Kobani.

In October last year I was critical of Turkey standing off while the Kurds fought for their lives against ISIS in Kobani. Graphic content here…

2. Update on Kobani (NZ 10/10): WARNING Graphic content

Well overnight, Turkey sent 600 troops and 100 tanks in to Syria, obviously to stablise its border and perhaps address the ISIS imbalance, but unlikely.  The story attached says they are on a purely specific Turkish mission to do with tombs and protecting Turkish interests, more likely, perhaps as a future pan-Islamic (Ottoman?) leader.

Breakfast Briefing With Israeli Ambassador to NZ

IMG_20150222_073350At a 7am breakfast briefing this morning in Christchurch (22/2) with the Israeli Ambassador to New Zealand, H.E. Yosef Livine. Very interesting. Some of his comments (paraphrased in quote marks as I recall them):

a) “NZ & Israel only trade $200 million a year, miniscule.”
b) “If Jerusalem was not at first holy to Jews, it would not have been holy to Muslims” (and my words) thousands of years later as Islam was constructed by Mohammed from Judaism and Christianity. Valid point.

c) “Hisbollah is fightin ISIS (Mr Livine referred to them as ISIS not IS or ISIL) but is using this conflict to increase its fields of influence, particularly on the Golan, with an object to surround northern israel. Hizbollah fighting ISIS does not make them the good guys.”

d) “Iran, with its new president, has created a cartoon competition supported by cultural groups to lampoon and deny the Jewish Holocaust. The competition will be judged with cash prizes, on April 1st, because in the West, this is the day of lies and fooling.” Official Holocaust denial and activism at state level, despite a new president and somewhat hypocritical re the recent murders of western cartoonists for drawing Mohammed.

e) “Iran has enough oil to meet its energy needs, it is a pillar of OPEC. Why does it need nuclear power?” A ruse?

f) To a Q. re some Knesset politicians advocating changes to the administration of the Temple Mount, the Ambassador said he was unaware of that, and suggested it was perhaps related to the Israel elections (in three weeks time) and politicians saying all sorts of things.

g) To another Q., he placed no significance he was aware of, to the tetrad moon eclipses coinciding with ancient Jewish festivals.

[Video] The Beheading of Egyptian Christians by ISIS

Innocent Egyptian Christians simply working in Libya, are defined as "the hostile Church" the distorted rhetoric of the Islamists.

Innocent Egyptian Christians working in Libya, are defined as “the hostile Church” the distorted rhetoric of the Islamists.

Christian Egyptian TV has an is absolutely ghastly video of the beheading of the ‘Egyptian Libyan 21′ this week (which you can see elsewhere, its available on several FB sites, including mine. Not gonna show it here). I am not glorifying this, but it is time to open our eyes and SEE the threat that opposes us. These innocent Egyptian Christians, both black and white, were butchered like lambs this week, on a Mediterranean shore in Libya where they were working, because jobs are few and far between in Egypt.

Because they are Christians, ISIS defines them as “crusaders” a Medieval event that ended over 1000 years ago and arose in Europe because of Islamic excesses in the Middle East and incursions into Europe. “Christianity” (aka Europeanness or cultural Catholicism) fought back. This is an age old battle and something that has been done for two millennia against Christians.

Warning! The video shows their beheading!

But the point I want to make most strongly, is that as the blade came to their neck the Coptic Christians all cried in unison “Ya Rabbi Yasou” O My Lord Jesus. They were given the ultimatum – deny the son of God or die! Every last one of them choose to remain loyal to Jesus Christ even though ISIS would murder them for their faith.

Two verses of the Bible spring to mind.

“They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” Revelation 12:11

“Then the dragon (Satan) was enraged at the woman (Israel/the Jews)and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring–those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.”  Revelation 12:17.

The Swede th’ Islamists Want Dead

British writer Salman Rushdie, Americans, Christians, Jews, French cartoonists, Iranians who play tennis, now the Islamists want to kill a Swedish cartoonist, Lars Wilks, for this, not especially offesive, cartoon.  So, it’s come to this: murderous violence for innocuous artistic expression like this?

Screen shot 2015-02-15 at 8.33.20 AM

Here’s a precy of the cartoonist the Mullahs want dead.

The Lars Vilks Muhammad drawings controversy began in July 2007 with a series of drawings that depicted Muhammad as a roundabout dog (a form of street installation in Sweden). Several art galleries in Sweden declined to show the drawings, citing security concerns and fear of violence (cowards and evidence this threat is now directly affecting freedom in the West). The controversy gained international attention after the Örebro-based regional newspaper Nerikes Allehanda published one of the drawings on 18 August to illustrate an editorial on self-censorship and freedom of religion.

401px-Lars_Vilks_(cropped)While several other leading Swedish newspapers had published the drawings already, this particular publication led to protests from Muslims in Sweden (who had been allowed to emigrate there on the basis of inclusion, cross-cultural tolerance, diversity…you know the pitch) as well as official condemnations from several foreign governments including Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Jordan (commenting on an internal Swedish matter, ignoring human rights abuses in self-same countries) as well as by the inter-governmental Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC). Oh that group, that never does anything to help the victims of Islamic atrocities.
