He Is Risen *Sticky*
20:1 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.
2 So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.”
3 So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they were going toward the tomb.
4 Both of them were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.
5 And stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in.
6 Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there,
7 and the face cloth, which had been on Jesus' head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself.
8 Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed;
9 for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead.

Candian Imam: A Beating Isn't Violence If It Isn't Agonizing
A Canadian Imam agrees domestic violence is wrong. However, according to him, it is perfectly Islamic and acceptable to beat women. You see, it isn't violence if it doesn't cause agony.
Sheikh Omar Subedar of the Imam, Islamic Society of Peel in Canada, signed the White Ribbon pledge to: "never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls."
But the White Ribbon folks should have explored his definition of "violence" a bit more closely.
At the Canadian Council of Muslim Theologians, the Imam writes, "Strike them: If the problem still does not get resolved then as a final resort Allah has permitted the husband to discipline his wife by striking her, however this does not imply that Allah is promoting domestic violence. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) has made it very clear that the beating should not be agonizing in any shape or form."

Copy Cat Of DC Snipers?
It looks like the Kansas City sniper may have been copying the DC snipers in individual jihad. Fortunately, he was nowhere near as deadly.
Mohammed Whitaker, suspect in the Kansas City-area highway shootings, is charged with 18 felony counts covering nine incidents, Jackson County's prosecutor said Friday. Two counts are "A" felonies alleging he shot someone by firing into a motor vehicle. Seven are "B" felonies alleging he fired into a motor vehicle. The other nine counts accuse him of armed criminal action, Jean Peters Baker said.
There's no evidence to suggest that anyone else besides the arrestee was involved in the Kansas City highway shootings, she said. (Source)

At Least They're Honest: Pakistani Madrassa for Girls Dubs Library "Osama bin Laden"
It's a lot easier differentiating friend from foe when they're honest. Don't you wish all our enemies did this?
Jamia Hafsa, a religious school for women in the Pakistani capital Islamabad connected to the notorious Lal Masjid has renamed its library in honour of slain al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden....
“It is true that we have named the library after Osama bin Laden,” a source told AFP Thursday, speaking on condition of anonymity.
“He might be a terrorist for others but we do not consider him as a terrorist. For us he was a hero of Islam.”
A small printed sign stuck over the library door gives bin Laden's name and refers to him as a “martyr.”
Kassim Al-Himidi Found Guilty in Murder of Wife Shaima Alawadi
Kassim tried to throw off police by leaving an Islamophobic note behind after he bashed his wife's skull in, didn't work.
NBC:A broken family’s screams erupted in a San Diego courtroom after a guilty verdict was announced in the trial of an Iraqi immigrant who killed his wife.Somehow I doubt that CAIR will be running this verdict on their blog?
As the defendant cried out in Arabic "not guilty," his mother-in-law flailed her arms, screaming "you killed my daughter," while his two teenage sons chose opposing sides.
Jurors found Kassim Al-Himidi, 49, guilty in the death of his wife Shaima Alawadi -- a bloody, brutal beating once considered a hate crime that was, in the end, an act of domestic violence.
After Judge William McGrath handed off the verdict for reading, several family members began screaming, including the defendant's oldest son, who yelled profanities, saying he disagreed with the jury's verdict.
Noted Friend of Convicted Jihadi w/ Mustache Fetish and Former Jawa Troll Sentenced for Helping Jihad Jane
It looks like all my old enemies from the Ansar Mujhadeen English Forum (AMEF) are all in prison now. I guess I can retire.
I'm too busy to go into the background of the entire case. Above I've posted part of a conversation between Khalid and his friend Emerson "Abu Nancy" Begolly as laid out in the federal complaint against him. Begolly was convicted of assaulting an FBI agent after they went to talk to him about his online activities in support of al Qaeda. The pair were part of a larger network that spent a lot of time online at the AMEF forum.
While it's true that most of their online friends form that forum are in jail, and that the forum also had a rather creepy obsession with me, Howie, and Aaron from SOFIR/Internet Haganah, contrary to popular belief I had nothing to do with any of their arrests nor have I been called to testify against any of them.
The fact that they've all landed in the federal penitentiary (or, in the case of Samir Khan, got themselves droned)? No, it's not a coincidence, but neither is it evidence that I had anything to do with it. It just means that a bunch of jihadis who couldn't help but draw attention to themselves by publicly stating their love of Osama bin Laden also happened to have mustache fetishes and angst about my sexual orientation. It's not causation so much as it is a correlation.
FBI Press Release:
PHILADELPHIA—Mohammad Hassan Khalid, 20, a Pakistani citizen and U.S. lawful permanent resident who resided in Maryland, was sentenced today to five years in prison for conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists. Khalid participated in a scheme to support, recruit, and coordinate members of a conspiracy in their plan to wage violent jihad in and around Europe. He pleaded guilty on May 4, 2012.In light of Khalid's helping the Feds track down and prosecute his former associates, let me be the first to wish him pleasant times and a cell mate with a mustache that would make Tom Selleck jealous.
Khalid conspired with Jamie Paulin-Ramirez and Colleen LaRose, aka “Jihad Jane,” who were charged separately, in a conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists. LaRose also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to kill in a foreign country, making false statements, and attempted identity theft and was sentenced to 10 years in prison; Paulin-Ramirez pleaded guilty to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and was sentenced to eight years in prison.
In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Court Judge Petrese B. Tucker ordered three years of supervised release, with limited access to computers, and a $100 special assessment. The sentencing result was announced by United States Attorney Zane David Memeger, FBI Special Agent in Charge Edward Hanko, and Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Carlin.
Khalid’s co‑defendant, Ali Charaf Damache, aka “Theblackflag,” an Algerian man who resided in Ireland, is in custody in Ireland pending extradition to the United States.
From about 2008 through July 2011, Khalid and Damache conspired with LaRose, Paulin-Ramirez, and others to provide material support and resources to terrorists, including logistical support, recruitment services, financial support, identification documents, and personnel. Khalid, Damache, and others devised and coordinated a violent jihad organization consisting of men and women from Europe and the United States divided into a planning team, a research team, an action team, a recruitment team, and a finance team, some of whom would travel to South Asia for explosives training and return to Europe to wage violent jihad.
As part of the conspiracy, Khalid, Damache, LaRose, and others recruited men online to wage violent jihad in South Asia and Europe. In addition, Khalid, Damache, LaRose, and others allegedly recruited women who had passports and the ability to travel to and around Europe in support of violent jihad. LaRose, Paulin‑Ramirez, and others traveled to and around Europe to participate in and support violent jihad. In addition, Khalid, LaRose, and others also solicited funds online for terrorists.
For example, in July 2009, Khalid posted or caused to be posted an online solicitation for funds to support terrorism on behalf of LaRose and later sent electronic communications to multiple online forums requesting the deletion of all posts by LaRose after she was questioned by the FBI. In August 2009, Khalid sent a questionnaire to LaRose in which he asked another potential female recruit about her beliefs and intentions with regard to violent jihad. In addition, Khalid received and concealed the location of a U.S. passport that LaRose had stolen from another individual.
The Khalid case was investigated by the FBI field division in Baltimore, in conjunction with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force in Philadelphia and the FBI field divisions in New York and Washington, D.C. Authorities in Ireland also provided assistance in this matter.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams and Trial Attorney Matthew F. Blue from the Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division. The Office of International Affairs in the Justice Departments Criminal Division also provided assistance.
ABC Shows Boston Bomber's Boat Note
ABC News has released the contents of a letter written by Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. It reads, in part:
"The U.S. government is killing our innocent civilians, but most of you already know that... I can't stand to see such [bullet hole] go unpunished," says the handwriting captured in the image obtained by ABC News from a law enforcement official in Massachusetts. "We Muslims are one body. You kill one of us, you hurt us all."As an Infidel, allow me to retort with my own letter:
"The Islamic umma is killing innocent civilians, theirs and ours. Most know this but refused to acknowledge it... We can't stand to see such [terrorism] go unpunished. We civilized humans are one body. You kill one of us, you blow up our cities, fly planes into our buildings, you rape our women, you enslave our children, you maim our daughters, you destroy our freedoms, you hurt us all."

Today We Laid To Rest A Hero
My father-in-law. Saw combat in Korea defending the Pusan Perimeter. Supported the troops in Vietnam while doing two tours in Thailand loading bombs on planes. He was an Air Force lifer, retired with full pension.
He taught me how to hunt deer. He taught me pretty much everything I knew about firearms. His job in the USAF was weapons. Yet he thought the 2nd Amendment applied to hunting rifles.
So he was also a staunch Democrat. The kind I look at and go "you voted for Obama"?
I don't care, I will always love and miss him.
Below the fold is my son's eulogy to him.Read More "Today We Laid To Rest A Hero"
