8:41 A.M. Memories of Hiroshima …

2015MThoughtsHeader

Three weeks ago, the U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) noted the number of Taliban, Islamic State or other terror-related attacks in the country had increased compared with previous years. A major suicide attack in Kabul on May 31 killed 150 people and caused “significant damage” to the Canadian embassy, according to remarks at the time by the foreign affairs minister’s office. The Pentagon’s latest report to the U.S. Congress said Afghanistan “faces a continuing threat from as many as 20 insurgent and terrorist networks present or operating in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, including the Taliban, the Haqqani Network, [Islamic State-Khorasan], and al-Qaeda.” It is “the highest concentration of extremist and terrorist groups in the world,” American defence officials concluded.

2:18 P.M. In Hiroshima, one August morning in 1945 was dark as night …

On the morning of Aug. 6, 1945, Setsuko Nakamura sat with her Grade 8 classmates on the floor of her private girls school, listening to a lecture about duty to the emperor. Setsuko and some of her classmates had been training as decoding assistants for the Japanese army, in preparation for the final invasion by Allied forces. But the Allies didn’t invade Hiroshima.

At 8:15 a.m., Setsuko saw a blinding blue-white flash out the window; she felt her body fly through the air. When she regained consciousness, the schoolroom had collapsed around her. It was dark as night and silent except for the faint whispers of her classmates: “God help me. Mother, help me!”

She felt a hand on her back and a male voice – a soldier, perhaps – urging her to crawl to safety. She crawled. When she was free of the building, she turned around and saw in the unnatural darkness of morning that her school was on fire, her friends within it. She was 13 1/2 years old.

6:54 P.M. This should have been dealt with in six months …THREE AND A HALF YEARS AGO !!! …

Ontario’s Superior Court has ordered a 6,600-square-foot Brampton monster home at the centre of a four-year dispute to be demolished. Two city councillors confirmed the half-finished house at 443 Centre St. N. — which has become known as the “Big Blue Monster” — must be taken down by the end of November. “Yesterday, the Superior Court issued a demolition order for the house,” councillors Grant Gibson and Elaine Moore said in a joint statement on Wednesday. “The court has ordered that the unfinished house must be demolished in its entirety within 120 days, which means that it will be removed before the end of November.”

The councillors said the city has designated the area a “mature neighbourhood,” which means any new development must maintain and preserve its character.

“When you look at this house … what do you think?” Moore asked in an interview with CityNews. “I think one of these things is not like the others. It doesn’t fit in the neighbourhood. It’s not the right scale and size for this neighbourhood.”

MORBNOTE ; If you look to the left side of this picture … Note what the residents in the dwarfed houses surrounding this farce have had to look at for FOUR YEARS when they have friends and family over for a summer BBQ !!! … This Elbasiouni wog should be FINED 20 million dollars to disperse among the surrunding hoiuseholds and pay for ALL court costs and politician’s time involved with this BULLSHIT !! … And then IMMEDIATELY DEPORTED !!! …

In 2012, Ahmed Elbasiouni got a permit from the City of Brampton to redevelop his property at 443 Centre St. N. Neighbours were expecting a small addition. Instead, Elbasiouni tore down the bungalow and started building a massive structure in its place. It wasn’t until 2013, when construction was well underway, that the city realized its mistake and revoked the permit. The city and the courts had on several occasions ordered Elbasiouni to either remove the structure, bring it into compliance with zoning bylaws or get approval from the committee of adjustments, which turned him down in January. “This [court] order also guarantees that whatever is built on this property in the future will be something that adds value to this community,” Gibson and Moore said.

Elbasiouni, meanwhile, is arguing the height complies with bylaws and said any new design won’t be significantly different. “The design which is going to take place is not going to make any difference in the height because the height here is within the [allowed] height, I’m 10.6 [metres], within the 10.6 allowed,” he said. “I may shave the front wall, I may shave the back wall, you know? I have to reorganize everything but it is going to be the same.” He has launched a $20-million lawsuit against the municipality for damages and is also suing two current councillors.and one former councillor for $7 million.

“How much money has it cost the city to deal with this in court?” said neighbour Gerald Payne. “My tax dollars are being used to fight this guy to get rid of the property. I’m surprised that thing hasn’t been burned down yet.”

I remember driving by this giant box of shit numerous times years ago when I was with a buddy of mine working in Bolton … It looks even worse when you’re actually there !!! …

An editorial from the Toronto Sun :

Ever since the Trudeau government’s reported $10 million-plus settlement with Omar Khadr became public, one aspect of the debate has centred around whether he was responsible for his actions at the age of 15. Accepted Islamic belief confirms the age of maturity at puberty. For boys, this is marked by the appearance of facial hair, a deepening of voice, and other, less visible, hormonal changes. For girls, the onset of menstruation denotes womanhood. These milestones are established in Islamic orthodoxy, and their significance is implied in the laws of various Islamic countries. Not only is marriage condoned at a very young age, but punishment and retribution are also determined on the basis of who is considered an adult. For example, the current Iranian penal code sets the age of maturity under sharia law for girls at nine years and for boys at 15. (This violates international standards, which generally set legal responsibility at 18 for both sexes.) Khadr was 15 at the time of the criminal acts of which he was convicted. According to accepted Islamic practice, he was by no means a child. It is only in our more benign judicial system that someone 15 years old who commits a serious crime is treated differently than an adult. So, should Khadr receive the sort of compensation Trudeau is reportedly offering? According to Islamic protocol, certainly not. Khadr admitted to throwing the fatal grenade that killed an American medic, and he accepted the conviction as part of a plea bargain, even if he later said he confessed only to get out of Guantanamo to serve the rest of his time in Canada. In Canada, even people wrongfully convicted of a crime do not automatically receive compensation. As the website of the Ontario Attorney General notes: “In recent years, there has been growing recognition in Canada and elsewhere that persons who have been wrongfully convicted and imprisoned should receive compensation from the state. Despite this growing recognition, there is no legal entitlement in Canada to compensation either by way of a statutory scheme or otherwise.” On what basis is Trudeau offering such generous compensation, and an official apology to Khadr for his treatment in Guantanamo Bay, where he was imprisoned by Americans, not Canadians? (The Supreme Court of Canada unanimously ruled in 2010 that Canada violated Khadr’s constitutional rights when CSIS and foreign affairs officials interviewed him, knowing he had been sleep-deprived, and shared the information with U.S. investigators.) It is only in Trudeau’s Canada that such naive acquiescence to Islamist extremism can allow someone like Khadr to be rewarded in this fashion. It is only in Trudeau’s Canada that terror-related offences, albeit committed by a child under Canadian, rather than Islamic law, can receive such leniency. There are people in Canada who will continue to play the victim card and quash any legitimate debate of the heinous Islamist practices connected with Khadr’s case. Orthodox Islamists in this country know how Islam defines adulthood, but have chosen to stay mum about it in this case. Now would have been a good time for them to show their enlightened credentials by repudiating what Khadr did, siding with Canadian taxpayers and protesting these misguided moves by the Trudeau government. Instead, the Khadr case allows Canadian Islamists to gloat about yet another victory in this country for their brand of extremism.
