Evidently, OBL has made his long overdue, and well deserved, demise. Let me emphasize that credit is due to the US Military, and NOT to Barack Hussein Obama, nor to the government of Pakistan.

Fox News: Usama Bin Laden is Dead, Say Sources

Usama bin Laden is dead, multiple sources confirm to Fox News.

President Obama is expected to deliver a statement from the White House Sunday night to discuss the major development.

Sources said bin Laden was killed by a U.S. bomb a week ago. The U.S. had been waiting for the results of a DNA test to confirm his identity.

The announcement comes nearly a decade after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks which started a tireless hunt for the terrorist mastermind and Al Qaeda leader.

Let us celebrate those who have resisted Islamic tyranny over the centuries

(h/t: Philip_Daniel)

Grom pobedy, razdavaysya! (Гром побе́ды, раздава́йся!; English translation: Let the thunder of victory sound), the Russian national anthem under Catherine the Great, which extols Russia’s victory against the Muhammadan hordes and the liberation of Azov from Islamic rule.

Translation by Alexander F. Beck

Triumph’s thunder louder, higher!
Russian pride is running high!
Russia’s glory sparkles brighter!
We have humbled Moslem might.

Refrain:
Hail to you for this, o Catherine –
Gentle mother to us all!

Danube’s swiftly flowing waters
Are at last in our firm hands;
Caucasus respects our prowess,
Russia rules Crimean lands.

Turkish-Tatar hordes no longer
May disturb our calm domain.
Proud Selim won’t be the stronger
evermore, as Crescent wanes.

Groans by Ishmael repeated
‘Round the world are heard perforce.
Envy, enmity – defeated! –
Turn to poison at the source.

Make the most of every triumph –
For our foes it’s time to see:
Russia reaches farther-higher
Over mountain peaks and seas.

Brilliant Empress, gaze at visions,
And behold, a woman great:
In your thoughts and your decisions
As one soul we all partake.

Look at grand cathedrals’ splendor,
Contemplate our strength and grace;
See your subjects’ hearts surrender
To rejoice before your face!

Vostani Serbije (Arise, Serbia) – Old Serbian Revolutionary Anthem

Anthem from the First Serbian Uprising Against Ottoman Rule
(1804-13)

Vostani Serbije (Arise, Serbia; Serbian Cyrillic: Востани Сербије), also known as Pesma na insurekciju Serbijanov (Ode to the Uprising of the Serbs) was a national anthem of revolutionary Serbia, written by Dositej Obradović during the First Serbian Uprising against Ottoman Empire in 1804. It is one of the best known patriotic songs in the country, and for some time it was considered as a potential national anthem following the replacement of the old Yugoslav anthem Hej Sloveni.

Arise, Serbia! Arise, empress!
and let your children see your face.
Make them turn their hearts and eyes on you,
and let them hear your sweet voices.

Arise, Serbia!
You fell asleep a long time ago,
And have lain in the dark.
Now wake up
And rouse the Serbs!

Raise high your imperial head,
So that land and sea may recognize you again.
Show Europe your delightful face,
As bright and cheerful as that of Venus (– the morning star).

Arise, Serbia!
You fell asleep a long time ago,
And have lain in the dark.
Now wake up
And rouse the Serbs!

Your sister Bosnia looks upon you
And she doesn’t want any offend
Who doesn’t love, he doesn’t afraid of God
Who give you a lot of help

Arise, Serbia!
You fell asleep a long time ago,
And have lain in the dark.
Now wake up
And rouse the Serbs!

Herzeg’s Land (– Herzegovina) and Black Mount (– Montenegro),
Faraway countries and sea islands
They all want heavens help to you
All good souls are kin to you

Arise, Serbia!
You fell asleep a long time ago,
And have lain in the dark.
Now wake up
And rouse the Serbs!
