So much for Homeland Security. From Russia, without love, hitting us where it really hurts.

Foreign hackers targeted U.S. water plant in apparent malicious cyber attack, expert says

Foreign hackers caused a pump at an Illinois water plant to fail last week, according to a preliminary state report. Experts said the cyber-attack, if confirmed, would be the first known to have damaged one of the systems that supply Americans with water, electricity and other essentials of modern life.

Companies and government agencies that rely on the Internet have for years been routine targets of hackers, but most incidents have resulted from attempts to steal information or interrupt the functioning of Web sites. The incident in Springfield, Ill., would mark a departure because it apparently caused physical destruction.

Muslim Problem, What Muslim Problem?

It’s Islamic Jihad’s 23rd anniversary today and they held a little celebration, lots of Islamic fun was had by all!


Islamic Jihad leader: Israel must be wiped out of existence

Tens of thousands of supporters of the militant Islamic Jihad movement rallied in the streets of Gaza on Friday, chanting “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”

Young men and boys wearing white T-shirts with a slogan in the shape of a rifle carried portraits of militants killed in combat, under the black flags of Islamic Jihad.

Ramadan Shallah, the group’s exiled chief, currently residing in Damascus, sent a recorded message marking the anniversary of the assassination of the group’s leader Fathi Shiqaqi in Malta in 1995, by presumed Israeli secret agents.

“Israel will not bring peace to the region, it will only bring war and destruction and therefore, the slogan of all should be that Israel must be wiped out of existence,” said Shallah, who is on a United States wanted list.

Senior leaders of the ruling Islamist group, Hamas, joined the open-air gathering, the largest for years in honor of Islamic Jihad with up to 100,000 attending according to its organizers.

Hamas allowed the group to use city terrain it usually reserves exclusively for its own rallies, and Hamas forces provided security for the parade by its smaller rival.

Unrequited Muslim Outreach

Now seriously, ask yourself, do these people strike you as being members of a Religion of Peace, content to harmoniously coexist alongside Israel (or the United States for that matter), abiding by a rationally negotiated, equitable two state solution? Do these people seem even remotely interested in Obama’s “outreach to Muslims”?

Of course, the answer to both questions is hell no! These Muslims are brainwashed from birth to annihilate Israel, kill every Jew, convert or kill every infidel, including you and your entire family, and destroy your civilization and way of life. The only reason they haven’t accomplished all these goals is that they’re not strong enough, yet.

But don’t worry, Western appeasement only gives them much contemptuously appreciated strength and encouragement. It’s an undisputed fact that Islam has declared war on the West multiple times in recent history. Whether you want to fight them or even take the threat seriously, it doesn’t matter. They’re deadly serious and they will take the fight to you. The evidence is so overwhelmingly pervasive to the point where you can’t rationally ignore it.
