Yet Another [Muslim] Cartoon of Blasphemy

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs brings us up to date on the latest Muslim “outrage”.

Muslims in Bangladesh are seething and burning things and calling for the arrest of another cartoonist who “hurt the religious sentiment of the people.”

    Dhaka, Sept 18: Authorities in Bangladesh on Tuesday ordered the arrest of a cartoonist and confiscated copies of a major newspaper’s weekly supplement for publishing a “blasphemous” caricature.“The government has confiscated the issue as the cartoon hurt the religious sentiment of the people. Moreover an order was issued to arrest cartoonist Arifur Rahman,” an official statement said, referring to the weekly caricature supplement “Alpin” of the Prothom Alo newspaper.The mass-circulated daily, however, immediately apologised and announced withdrawal of the cartoon.

    A group of people torched copies of the paper after publication of the cartoon yesterday and several Islamic groups protested, saying the drawings ridiculed prophet Mohammad and his close aides.

    They demanded “exemplary punishment” of the paper’s editor and the cartoonist.

Knicks Coach: B-Word’s Connotations Different for Blacks, Whites

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

This says a lot about what is wrong with our country. Hey, I have an idea: why don’t we just refrain from calling ANYONE the B-word? Wouldn’t that make things a bit nicer all the way around??

NEW YORK — To New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas, hearing a white man refer to a black woman using a certain vulgar term would be “highly offensive.”

But he said he wouldn’t be so offended if he heard a black man use the same term to refer to a black woman.

“I do make a distinction,” Thomas said in a videotaped deposition played for a jury Monday in his sexual harassment trial.

A former female team executive, Anucha Browne Sanders, is seeking $10 million in damages on her claim that she was fired because she accused Thomas of harassment. She has said that Thomas repeatedly called her by the word, “bitch,” which the Knicks coach was addressing in the videotaped deposition.

He denied calling Browne Sanders vulgar names.

“I never cursed at Miss Sanders,” a mild-mannered Thomas said in the tape, which was projected on a big screen in a packed federal courtroom in the second week of the widely publicized trial.

“Now have I ever used curse words around her, yes, but at her? No,” Thomas said in response to questions posed by attorneys.

Islam Expert: Europe Well on the Way to ‘Islamization’

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

Further to what I’ve been saying today, we could very well find ourselves in the same shoes as Europe.

A best-selling author and leading expert on Islam says that religion is well on its way to taking control of Europe — and he’s afraid that widespread violence may break out as a result.

In his new book, Religion of Peace? Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn’t, Robert Spencer, who is director of Jihad Watch, says that the war on terror is in fact a struggle against an Islamic jihad that would conquer and subjugate Western non-Muslims. He also asserts that Islam is well on its way to taking over Europe because the population has been silent for too long.

“It looks as if the problem as advanced far beyond the point of any kind of peaceful or easy resolution,” he explains. “Europe is either going to acquiesce in its Islamization and in the imposition of Islamic Sharia law, or its going to degenerate into large-scale conflict between non-Muslims who do not want to be quietly Islamized and the Muslim communities in Europe.”

Muslim Brotherhood’s Papers Detail Plan to Seize U.S.

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

All of us need to ingrain the words “Muslim Brotherhood” on our brains and be aware of every time we hear it. This group, based primarily out of Egypt, is a quasi-political party (unable to run for office as an official political party, but has many of it’s members elected to the parliament) with terrorist ties. They are tied to CAIR (the Council of American Islamic Relations) and have direct ties to several Middle East terrorist groups.
Here in the U.S. their methods are a bit different. They instruct U.S. Muslims “that they must work on reforming their government so that it may become a truly Islamic government. … By Islamic government I mean a government whose officers are Muslims who perform the obligatory duties of Islam, who do not make public their disobedience, and who enforce the rules and teachings of Islam.” (Teachings by Imam [Hasan] Al-Banna).

Do you folks understand why Islam is so dangerous to the United States? Let me spell it out for you.
The Muslim is a Muslim first. He/She is willing to lie and misrepresent themselves in order to gain an advantage. In other words, a Muslim who is elected to public office will tell us that they swore an oath to the United States, but this oath is a front, a falsehood used to allow them access to begin introducing Islam into government policy.
They are very good at.
I wish I could say that all of this is conspiracy theory hooey. But it isn’t. You must remember that in all things, a Muslim is a Muslim first and an American second. In all decisions he/she makes, Islam advances and America falls.

Amid the mountain of evidence released in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial, the most provocative has turned out to be a handful of previously classified evidence detailing Islamist extremists’ ambitious plans for a U.S. takeover.

A knot of terrorism researchers say the memos and audiotapes, many translated from Arabic and containing detailed strategies by the international Islamist group the Muslim Brotherhood, are proof that extremists have long sought to replace the Constitution with Shariah, or Islamic law.

But some academics and Muslim leaders say that the ideals contained in the documents were written by disgruntled foreign dissidents representing a tiny radical fringe. The documents also pre-date the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and the 80-year-old Muslim Brotherhood is now either inactive or largely underground in America.

The documents – introduced in recent weeks as part of the prosecution’s case in the trial of the now defunct Holy Land Foundation and five of its organizers – lay out the Brotherhood’s plans in chillingly stark terms.

A 1991 strategy paper for the Brotherhood, often referred to as the Ikhwan in Arabic, found in the Virginia home of an unindicted co-conspirator in the case, describes the group’s U.S. goals, referred to as a “civilization-jihadist process.”

“The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions,” it states. This process requires a “mastery of the art of ‘coalitions,’ the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’ ”

Success in the U.S. “in establishing an observant Islamic base with power and effectiveness will be the best support and aid to the global movement,” it states.

A transcript of a Brotherhood orientation meeting recorded in the early 1980s includes discussions of the need for “securing the group” from infiltration by “Zionism, Masonry … the CIA, FBI, etc. so that we find out if they are monitoring us” and “how can we get rid of them.” Discussions later turn to “weapons training at the Ikhwan’s camps” in Oklahoma and Missouri.

Police Tell Threatened Swedish Artist to Leave Home

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

Earlier, I blogged about a Swedish man who made a cartoon of a dog with the Islamic “prophet” Mohammed’s head. Of course once again, the so-called, self proclaimed “peaceful and ever tolerant” Muslims have shown their “peaceful and tolerant” nature by threatening to kill the artist. He has been advised by the police to go into hiding.
And of course in today’s world, the individual who wishes to express his/her right to freedom of speech, is punished by being forced into hiding, while the authorities refuse to actually stop the nut cases making the threats. Seem kind of backwards to me.

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – A Swedish artist threatened with death over his drawing of Islam’s Prophet Mohammad has been told by police he is no longer safe living at home.

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, leader of the self-styled Islamic State in Iraq, offered up to $150,000 on Saturday for the murder of artist Lars Vilks for drawing the head of the Prophet on the body of a dog.

“I can’t live here,” Vilks told Reuters by phone. “SAPO (Sweden’s security service) have judged that it (the threat) is very serious.”

He was allowed to go home and collect some things but it may be a long time before he is able to return again, he said.

“We have had contact with him (Vilks) and together with him are taking the decisions that are necessary,” a police spokesman said.

Sen. Hillary Clinton Unveils $110 Billion Universal Health Care Plan

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

Here we go again.
So the Hildabeast wants to give everyone insurance on a government spoon. The article states that her plan would “help provide coverage for 47 million Americans without health care coverage”. I wonder if this number includes the 12 million plus illegal aliens too? Probably.

Check out the standard Hildabeast double talk:
“I know my Republican opponents will try to equate health care for all Americans with government-run health care. Don’t let them fool us again. This is not government-run”.

From the article:
“Clinton would offer expanded versions of two existing government programs: Medicare, and the health insurance plan currently offered to federal employees. Consumers could choose between either government-run program“.

And who would pay for all of this? Read on…
From the article:
“Clinton proposed several specific measures to pay for her plan, including an end to some of the Bush-era tax cuts for people making more than $250,000 per year. Edwards has vowed to completely repeal the tax cuts for high earners to pay for the cost of his plan, estimated at $90 billion-$120 billion per year, while Obama would pay for his plan in part by letting the tax cuts expire in 2010.”

Go look at your paycheck and see how much the government is currently taking out. Go on. I’ll wait for you to get back with it. OK, see that really big number beside the heading “federal taxes”? If the Hildabeast or any of the other dems are elected, expect that number to go up. Way up. Expect the bottom line of your check, the amount you get to take home, to go down. Way down.
For those of us with kids, we can forget about the $1,000 per child income tax deduction. It will be gone.
Every time the dems get in charge, they try to “tax us to prosperity”. It never works. All it does is drag the economy down and hurt us middle class folks. Folks, is this really what we want?
I believe the answer is a resounding “No”!

DES MOINES, Iowa — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Monday proposed a health care plan that would require every American to have health insurance just like states require drivers to buy auto insurance.

The so-called “individual mandate” — the centerpiece of her “American Health Choices Plan” — would cost the federal government $110 billion a year and would help provide coverage for 47 million Americans without health care coverage. It is similar to a proposal offered by rival John Edwards. Barack Obama’s health care plan does not have the same mandate.

“I believe everyone — every man, woman and child — should have quality, affordable health care in America,” the New York senator told an audience in Iowa, vowing to accomplish the goal in her first term.

Clinton’s opponents were quick to meet her expectations. A spokeswoman for Rudy Giuliani called the plan “HillaryCare 2.0.”

“Clinton’s latest health scheme includes more government mandates, expensive federal subsidies and more big bureaucracy – in short, a prescription for an increase in wait times, a decrease in patient care and tax hikes to pay for it all,” Giuliani spokeswoman Katie Levinson said.
