Pentagon bows to Hamas-linked CAIR, removes image of female Muslim jihadist from target range

Target.jpgNot allowed to fire back

Never mind that there are actual Muslim women with guns and Qur’ans ready to wage jihad against non-Muslims:

If we notice, that’s “Islamophobia.”

“SEAL training range won’t show woman as target,” by Kate Wiltrout for The Virginian-Pilot, June 30 (thanks to all who sent this in):

NORFOLK – The Navy will not use a target depicting a Muslim woman holding a gun at a new training range for SEALs in Virginia Beach.

The announcement came hours after the [Hamas-linked] Council on American-Islamic Relations asked the Pentagon to remove the target. A picture of the cardboard target, which shows a woman in a headscarf holding a pistol, was published in The Virginian-Pilot on Tuesday. The image shows verses of the Quran hanging on the wall behind the woman, which also generated criticism from the group.

Nihad Awad, executive director of the [Hamas-linked] Washington-based council, said in the letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta dated Friday that the target “is offensive and sends a negative and counterproductive message to trainees and to the Muslim-majority nations to which they may be deployed.”

Panetta’s press office did not respond to a request for comment. Late Friday, Lt. David Lloyd, a spokesman for Naval Special Warfare Group 2, said the materials in question would not be used on the close quarters combat training range, which was dedicated Monday at Joint Expeditionary Base Fort Story.

“We have removed this particular target and Arabic writing in question from the range in the near term, and will explore other options for future training,” Lloyd said….

The 26,500-square-foot building contains 52 interconnected spaces, including mock-ups of markets, a hospital, schools, a bank, a bus depot and two mosques. It will allow small groups of SEALs to practice enemy engagement at close range….

I’m sure the mosques will be going soon as well.

Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the [Hamas-linked] Islamic group, said it’s important that military units not be trained to see Muslims as enemies, even if they are fighting in Afghanistan or other Muslim-majority nations.

“There are all kinds of people all over the world trying to do us harm. Why would you use this particular image in training people how to kill?” Hooper asked. “It creates the impression, we believe, in subtle and not-so-subtle ways, that you should view Muslim women in headscarves with hostility and suspicion.”…

From now on, this image, approved by Hamas-linked CAIR, will be used as the target:

    Why would a Muslim woman fire a gun anyway? Why would she fight to defend a religion that enslaves her and offers no paradise for her in the afterlife? Just what, can anyone tell me, does a female expect to receive in Muslim paradise? I’ve never found the answer to this question.
    Muslim women have to be incredibly stupid, and I mean incredibly stupid. I used to feel sorry for them, but not any more. They deserve everything that they get!

    These imams and mullahs have no ethics whatsoever. They even mind program and brainwash women to do all the violent dirty work thet they are afraid to do.

  3. says

    So basically, the Hamas-Linked CAIR’s Fibber McHooper does not object to shooting females…..hiso nly complaint is that it’s muslim females.
    Got it Hooper, you’re OK with al qeada and your islamic supremacy buddies slaughtering 3000 civilains on 9/11 and maily infidel females among tghem, BUT….allah finds it offensive to use the image of a jihadist killer or suicide-bomber female when there is no evidence the female IS a muslim.
    All I see is a women with a head scarf that is NOT a religious item as CAIR loves to claim when a women is killed via Honour killings for NOT wearing the hijab as we saw in canada by the Daddy dearest in the Shafia case.
    She could be one of those radical Christians CAIR is so obsessed over for their on going charity to help the poor and care for AIDS victims.

    Wanna bet that if the FBI had a female IDF member that CAIR would actually encourage muslims to join and practice killing those filthy jews and oppressers in israel.
    Poor Fibber McHooper, the fare-skinned blue-eye white guy will be the first olne beheaded by the islamists one he’s fullfilled his purpose as the useful-idiot Westerner too stupi to actually read the quran or see what happens in Africa to non-Arab muslims.
    Lets see Hooper go to Dearborn and pretend to be a devout muslim among those stone throwing savages that created a welfare ghetto and no-go zone full of homophobic pedophiles emulating mughammad the King of pedophiles.

    Two-Minute Hate! We have always been at peace with Islamy, and Immanuel Goldstein is a war-mongering Islamophobic Zionist agent and provocator!

  5. says

    Of course, a picture of a smiling, blue-eyed, grey-haired Swedish grandmother would be a much more likely ‘target’ for trainee jihad-neutralizing soldiers.

    Oh, for a CAIRfree society!

  6. says

    The Navy can replace this image with one of a 7 y.o. kid in a bomb vest. Maybe CAIR would prefer that? It would be better practice for the Seals anyway — a smaller target.

    Unesco helpless as Mali extremists attack ancient shrines in Timbuktu

    SAINT PETERSBURG: The UN cultural body Unesco watched in horror on Saturday as Mali extremists ravaged shrines in the fabled city of Timbuktu which it had listed as endangered sites just days before.

    Islamist rebels destroy UNESCO World Heritage sites in historic Mali city of Timbuktu

    Resident Ali Yattara said Saturday that the Islamists began attacking the saints’ tombs with shovels. He says they said they were responding to UNESCO’s request on Thursday that the sites be put on the organization’s “in danger” list.

    There’s been a kind of law afoot since 911, which may be formulated thusly:

    The more that Muslims descend to the horrible nadir of grotesquely depraved and deadly fanatical words & deeds, the more our Westerners — in direct response to these Muslims — reach for the preposterously idealistic stars of the sublimely ridiculous and outrageously ineffectual.

    One silver lining to this story, however: it indicates that it has been the policy of our US Military to use Muslim images as targets~ So our government agencies haven’t been utterly stark raving insane in their myopia to this Tyrannosaurus Rex in the room, as we may sometimes in our darker hours reasonably suppose.

    HOW DOES CAIR KNOW HOW THE SEALS TRAIN?
    Everything re: The U.S. Navy SEALS training and tactics are NOT for public consumption,much less THE ENEMY’S.
    There are people who SWORE OATHS to DEFEND THIS COUNTRY and OUR CONSTITUTION who have BROKEN their OATHS.
    Somebody who has COMMAND over the SEALS ,SHOULDN’T!

    So, if the muslims know how to play the system…and they do seem to most often get what they demand…at what point does this become the SYSTEM’S fault? And by the “system,” I mean all our officialdom, elected, appointed, and including the military. The more that muslims demand the more we give them. The more we give them the more they demand–of course–why wouldn’t they? The solution seems simple and obvious: Just say ‘NO’ to muslim demands–for anything–at any level. Why anyone in America feels beholden to honor the demands of an enemy–one who has attacked (and continues to attack) us on our home-shores–and everywhere else, for that matter–is beyond my ken…

    In Islamic society, women are ONLY respected as equals when they are fighting and dying in jihad. That is enticing for some women who have been treated like worthless animals all their lives. One way jihadists recruit female suicide bombers is to gang rape them and give them the choice: 1) Get their faces marked by slicing from ear to mouth (called a “moonie”) and to be abused by every man who sees it and die as a fornicator (for being raped), or 2) Become a suicide bomber. Ironically, women are also used in victim propaganda, with jihadists claiming (and screaming) that our soldiers are killing innocent women even when those women were in fact engaged in jihad.

  12. says

    This is just an extension of the recent directive to purge all official documents and training materiels of any wording that might in any way shape or form be considered an insult to Islam, real or imagined. This has Muslim Brotherhood infiltration written all over it.

  13. says

    “From now on, this image, approved by Hamas-linked CAIR, will be used as the target”

    They wouldn’t do that.

    Would they?

    Jihadists use of women extends to these brave warriors trying to escape from the scene of their crimes by wearing their wife’s burka.

    The Pentagon answers to Obama, Obama is a spineless jelly-fish. Therefore it is no surprise that the Pentagon would cave in so quickly to the Muslims. Fortunately though there are Americans like Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller and many others who do have a back bone and are not afraid to stand-up for the truth.

    Pakistan –
    AP sources: US mulls new covert raids in Pakistan
    Jun 22, 12:24 PM (ET)

    By KIMBERLY DOZIER

    (Excerpt)
    The U.S. has staged two major raids and other minor forays into Pakistan’s tribal territory during the George W. Bush administration; the most contentious was in September 2008 when Navy SEALs raided an al-Qaida compound. The operators killed their target, but the ensuing firefight triggered a diplomatic storm with Pakistan.

    Rather than fly in, which U.S. military planners at the time feared would alert the Pakistanis, the SEALs marched across the mountainous border, arriving later than planned because of the harsh terrain and just as the fighters were waking for morning prayers, according to one current and one former U.S. official. They spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the clandestine operation.

    Everyone inside the targeted compound opened fire on the SEALs, including the women, one of whom lightly wounded one of the American operators. The firefight also woke the entire village, which joined in the battle, so the SEALs had to call for strafing runs by Black Hawk helicopters to beat them back.

    At least one woman and one child were among the many dead.

    {emphasis added by me – W.D.}

  17. says

    That’s really stupid of them – the whole idea of such a target is to get troops used to the fact that islamic terrorists will use any subterfuge, including men dressing as women apart, of course, from the fact that some muslim women are terrorists. In any even, muslims have little, or no, respect for women – and kill them themselves – so are they pretending to be civilised to confuse us, again? The military needs to get its act together – again! Fancy kow-towing to the wishes of an alien enemy in the first place – they must be laughing their burkas and long flowing beards off ( and that’s just the women )

    “Muslim women have to be incredibly stupid,”

    Maybe, but what’s a Moslem woman to do? If she’s in an Islamic country — and about 90% of them are — hubby can beat the crap out of her every day for any disobedience, or even kill her, with no repercussions from the law or the neighbors. Even in Western countries, hubby can do it, although he’s got a good chance of prison.
    And if she voices any second thoughts about Prophet Mo, not only hubby, but the state itself, will kill her for apostasy.
    Even if she seizes a chance to cut out hubby’s gizzard, and gets away with it, what then? She has no rights, and becomes the property of a son or brother, who marries her off to another hubby.
    “Grin and bear it” is the watchword for Moslem women.

    There’s a saying from ancient Egypt, Softly Bob, that even the shovelers of camel dung think themselves better than someone else. Muslim women, though heinously subservient to Muslim men across the board, still believe themselves far better than the filthy kuffaar (kafir). This is part of the reason why they remain Muslim. Ebonystone provided another reason—sheer fear. And finally one should not overlook what Arthur Schopenhauer observed and that is that one can get a person to believe any amount of nonsense if they get the child early enough. This would be another reason for the vast majority of Muslim women remaining Muslim though this would not account for those pathetic females who convert to Islam as adults, but then those who do have their own issues going on, like general stupidity, massive ignorance and low self-esteem.

    Men and women are taught different things in islam.

    For men it’s all positive re enforcements. They have to fight and die for allah to attain paradise.

    For women it’s all negative re enforcement. They have to be good muslimas and fight and die for allah to prevent being thrown into hell.

    As is often mentioned to muslims Muhammed himself had said in the Night Journey, that hell was full of women. So to muslim women and men, this is taught to them from childhood.
    It is most likely they will be thrown into hell unless they behave as good muslimas and good house slaves of their men in life.
    Now what would they get in paradise if they escape the odds of being thrown into hell? As far as we know they get the same as men. Virgins and pearly boys. Not necessarily as sex object but more as servants and ideal daughters and sons. So a women can relax in paradise while being served on reclining sofas by virgins and little e boys. I would presume for the virgins of paradise this is a better bargain then being forced to be sex slaves of these muslim men.

  21. says

    I did not question why a Muslim woman remains Muslim. I questioned why she would fight for and thus be prepared to die for Islam. What does she get out of this? She lives a life of hell and then dies to get what? Paradise? No,not for her.
    What exactly do Muslim women expect in the afterlife? It apparently offers them nothing. Islamic paradise is tailor made for men.

  22. says

    Then indeed she must be stupid.
    She lives in hell, gets killed and then goes straight to the same hell again.
    She would be better off keeping her head down, acting like a good little Muslim and simply waiting to die of natural causes.

  23. says

    Excellent observation, CHOI. Even though the target muslim is humorously funny, in appearance, it is an important point about how did this get out? It shouldn’t have considering what we know of islam. I suspect a low level guy didn’t realize the problem of letting it out, enjoyed the irony of the one eye closed, and thought he would have a little fun putting it out.

    In addition, has anyone here a background in weaponry? Did anyone notice the muslimah was an ignorant untrained jackass with one eye closed, which is not how an accomplished shootist is trained, at least in police small arms training, and sniper training. It is always, both eyes open. Otherwise, whouldn’t everyone where eye patches? A little joke there.

    I suspect the target designer had a fine sense of humor, knowledge of islam, perhaps, and irony, in designing that realistic target, and it is realistic, and illustrates what we’re saying, a stupid muslimah, with one eye closed….Ha, ha. She’ll miss and be taken out.

    The fundamental problem is that islam has no regard in war, for age, sex or species (hell, even out of war no regard, hell they’ll screw even the dead, so long as fresh dead…). And it is in war, according to islam. So if it has a device or weapon, it needs to be neutralized, period.

  24. says

    I agree – muslim women who take this action are stupid in every sense of the term. Certainly, the same can be said of those who choose to convert to islam.

    Yet – i believe that muslim women may prove to be the answer. Women in western society had long felt oppression before they successfully embarked on feminist crusades [and i use this term advisedly]. And these continue today. As more freedoms are won, the meek become bold and the bold become further emboldened. The result has been the ongoing and increasing liberation and emancipation of women.

    I believe that the same is at least possible in the muslim world. And, islamic feminism has shown some, albeit impotent, promise in improving the plight of muslim women. If only western feminists could be a little less silent on this matter and add their voices in support – a few marches and rallies with placard waving women would be a great start. I just haven’t seen it yet.
