Chatanooga Roundup & Tomi Lahren

So 4 Marines were shot dead by another Mohammedan in Chatanooga, Tennessee.

One of the strongest voices of reason came from 22-year-old Tomi Lahren, who blasted Obama's feeble strategy against Islamic terrorism.

Below is her viral video. And I've collected a bunch of other videos and tweets on Storify for more sane commentary on the shooting.

It’s time to end this lie about Islam: Andrew Bolt

Slowly the media is dragging itself towards the truth about Islam.

This week Melanie Phillips wrote: It’s pure myth that Islam is ‘a religion of peace’.

Here in Australia, Andrew Bolt is one of the few journalists to speak about Islam.

It’s Time to End This Lie About Islam
By Andrew Bolt

THE Prime Minister is wrong. I’m sure Tony Abbott knows it, too, but does not dare publicly tell the truth about Islamic terrorism.

Abbott insists Islam had nothing to do with last week’s shooting of tourists in Tunisia, bombing of Shia worshippers in Kuwait and beheading of a man in France...

Is he kidding us? ...

Let’s end this polite lie, which blinds us to the steps we must take to defend ourselves...

... Islamic State regularly quotes the Koran and sacred Surah to justify its every barbarity.

Its infamous statement last year ordering Muslims around the world to kill unbelievers quoted holy scripture at least 25 times in support.

Those quotations included this, from the Koran: “Kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush.”

And this, also from the Koran, justifying the Islamic State’s liking for decapitation: “He the Exalted said: ‘So when you meet those who disbelieve (in battle), strike (their) necks’.”

The Research and Fatwa Department of the Islamic State even produced a pamphlet last year quoting the Koran to let its soldiers enslave and rape hundreds of Yazidi women...

Clive Kessler, emeritus professor of sociology and anthropology at the University of NSW, has studied Islam for 50 years and is gloomy.

He says most mainstream Muslims don’t speak out because they actually “share a common mindset and set of attitudes” — that Islam must triumph — even if they don’t accept the radicals’ means...

Yes, it’s a voice of Islam speaking. Deal with it, or we’re lost.

Storify news links

Storify is also embeddable, so I've embedded it here on a blog post here.

That page is now linked in the sidebar too.

So, now you can read my news links here, as well as on Storify.

I may need to create a new story every month or so, if it becomes too long and unwieldy.

I'm on Storify

If anyone follows my Twitter news feed, you might want to follow me on Storify now instead:

Twitter has disabled video embedding on our front pages (probably to highlight advertisements instead), so it's not as useful as it once was.

I will continue to use Twitter to gather links, but I will now drag the highlights into Storify where video embedding is still working, and the presentation is better.

Storify is intended for small stories, by gathering a handful of links together. But I will use it for one continuous stream (until I hit the 1000 item limit, and then I'll start a 2nd story, etc).

Like Twitter, Storify is easy to use, and makes for quick sharing of links.

Blogging will continue here, as usual, when I have the time.
