Thankfully, his asylum trial has taken an unexpected turn for the better.

Queers Against Israeli Apartheid.
If I was a lesser man, I'd let idiots like this turn me into a raging homophobe. I just hope they're in California the day Israel legalizes gay marriage, because I'll be laughing my Zionist head off.

Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani-born US Muslim suspected of orchestrating the attempted bombing of Times Square of May 1st, has told U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum that he "pleads guilty 100 times and more."
Courtesy of Yahoo! News:
This has become a disturbing spectacle in terrorism suspect trials; the suspect shows absolutely no remorse for his intentions and happily pleads guilty to plans of mass murder.
"One has to understand where I'm coming from," Shahzad calmly told [the judge], who challenged him repeatedly with questions such as whether he worried about killing children in Times Square. "I consider myself ... a Muslim soldier."
The 30-year-old described his effort to set off a bomb in an SUV he parked in Times Square on May 1, saying he chose the warm Saturday night because it would be crowded with people who he could injure or kill.
Shahzad dismissed the judge's question about the children by saying the U.S. didn't care when children were killed in Muslim countries.
These people, for lack of a better word, like Shahzad consider citizens of entire countries to be soldiers in a war if that country is engaged in war. In their minds, they are not attacking innocents; they are attacking military targets. Shazad's sentiments of being a "Muslim soldier" are literal.
Whether these vermin truly believe in such a flawed perspective or have merely fooled themselves into doing so , I can't say for sure; it may be one or the other, or it may be both.

Here's something that, for me, describes a very important part of fatherdom. The father in question sounds a lot like my own. He's a great man. Served in the IDF and managed to raise 3 sons so they won't be eaten alive by the world.
Toda raba, Aba. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be the man I am today.

Read all about it here.
The MSU released a statement over their club listserv bemoaning the decision because it would "deprive current and incoming Muslim students" of a cohesive Muslim community and all that nonsense.
Their leadership should have taken that into consideration before they risked their entire club to shut up the Israeli ambassador. Now they're paying for it; if the Muslim community in Irvine is pissed, they should be pissed at the MSU leadership who organized this thing.

Suffice to say I think all the recent hoo-hah around the Gaza flotillas is utter excrement. It really and truly disturbs me that so many people can watch the video of what went down (assuming they've actually done so) and still fail to see the need for self-defense. Go out and get a new pair of prescription glasses or something. Use binoculars. Geez.
Anyways. The Kurdistan flotilla.
This is definitely something that won't be getting the press coverage it deserves. I guarantee it.
Looks like all the recent Gaza flotillas have inspired a Free Kurdistan movement to emulate them for the people in Kurdistan. I don't know much about the region or its history, except that it's under Turkish control, "occupation". Doubtless many parallels can be drawn between it and the conflict around Israel. Just another example of the double-standards the Jewish state is held to.
And yet I'm sure all the brazen flotilla-bandwagonists won't even give the poor Turkish-oppressed Kurds a second thought. You can forget about international attention.
Hey folks, that's just the kind of world we live in today.
