A popular Spanish nightclub has been forced to change its name from Mecca after sparking a furious reaction around the Islamic world.
Intelligence chiefs warned owners they were being targeted by extremists who claim the disco is insulting to their religion.
Hackers broke into the nightclub's website and posted a video threatening 'a great war between Spain and the people of Islam' if the venue did not change its name.

Not only that but only a moron or a delusional liberal would try to say that lifestyle choices would not help to cut down on the chance of getting AIDS/HIV or any other sexual disease.
O'Donnell was ahead of the curve.
Now TPM has unearthed a 1997 C-SPAN video that shows O’Donnell voicing concerns that a drag queen ball “celebrates the type of lifestyle which leads to the disease,” objecting to terming those with AIDS “victims” and calling AIDS a consequence of a certain “lifestyle which brings about this disease.”
After complaining that “there is a gross disproportionate allocation of funds” going to AIDS treatment and prevention in comparison to resources designated to combat heart disease, O’Donnell compared living healthier to changing the “lifestyle” that she said lead to AIDS.
“When somebody finds out that they’re at high risk for heart disease, they cut out the fatty foods, they start exercising, they quit smoking. However, our approach to AIDS, when you’re in a high risk behavior, is to eliminate the consequences so that you can continue in your lifestyle which brings about this disease,” O’Donnell said.
Referring to people who get AIDS as victims, O’Donnell said, was “the kind of spinning with words and manipulating words that empowers the bias when it comes to AIDS.”
O’Donnell also took issue with government spending on preventative programs. “A lot of the money that we’re spending goes to things that we know will not prevent AIDS, but indeed will continue to spread the disease,” she said. “A lot of our money goes to distribute condoms in high schools, and a lot of our money goes to distribute material that is literally pornographic.”
She said that individuals could bring their chance of getting AIDS down to almost zero if they didn’t have sex outside of marriage, by having a monogamous marriage and by not using drugs that can spread HIV. O’Donnell also claimed that there was a “powerful political agenda” that was not allowing AIDS to be looked at fairly and objectively.
O'Donnell was ahead of the curve.

Funding for HIV prevention is being wasted on strategies which have little impact, say US researchers who call for a "dramatic shift" in priorities.
Substantial investment in condom promotion, HIV testing and vaccine research has had limited success in Africa, they argue in Science.
Instead male circumcision and reducing multiple sexual partners should become the "cornerstone" of prevention.
Two-thirds of HIV infections globally occur in Africa.
Yet the researchers from the Harvard University School of Public Health said the evidence behind many of the prevention strategies used in African countries with "generalised" heterosexual HIV epidemics was weak.
It comes as a second article published in the British Medical Journal called for UNAids to be shut down as it was distorting health financing.
Roger England, chair of small Grenada-based think tank, Health Systems Workshop, said too much is being spent on HIV compared with other diseases which kill more people.
He said globally HIV causes 3.7% of mortality but received 25% of health aid.
Money would be better spent on improving health systems within countries, he argued.
As World AIDS Day is marked on Monday, some experts are growing more outspoken in complaining that AIDS is eating up funding at the expense of more pressing health needs.
They argue that the world has entered a post-AIDS era in which the disease's spread has largely been curbed in much of the world, Africa excepted.
"AIDS is a terrible humanitarian tragedy, but it's just one of many terrible humanitarian tragedies," said Jeremy Shiffman, who studies health spending at Syracuse University.
Roger England of Health Systems Workshop, a think tank based in the Caribbean island of Grenada, goes further. He argues that UNAIDS, the U.N. agency leading the fight against the disease, has outlived its purpose and should be disbanded.
"The global HIV industry is too big and out of control. We have created a monster with too many vested interests and reputations at stake, ... too many relatively well paid HIV staff in affected countries, and too many rock stars with AIDS support as a fashion accessory," he wrote in the British Medical Journal in May.
Good to see the head of the Department of Homeland Security for the entire nation who is supposed to be securing the borders and making sure illegals are not in the country encouraging race based politics.
ABC News' Devin Dwyer reports: Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told a group of Latino leaders from across the U.S. today that responsibility for inaction on a comprehensive immigration reform bill falls squarely on Republicans and that the Latino community must turn out in November to vote their displeasure.
“Your voice is your vote, man,” Napolitano said at a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute event. “Your vote is the currency this town lives on.”
If he was on his off hours, firing him seems to be heading towards a lawsuit with the union and the ACLU you would think rushing to his aid. But burning the Quran I can see both groups refusing to help him. If he had burned the flag or bible, I doubt anything would have happen to him.

Why bother going through the citizenship process or even becoming a legal immigrant if being illegal means getting the same privileges.
