Sir Saman Rusdie

Red State notices that one minister from Pakistan believes granting the knighthood to Salman Rushdie is justification for a suicide bombing. That remark indicates the width of the divide between people who believe they have the right to tell the West what to do and the small remnant that mistakenly believes that they still have liberty.

Nothing follows.

But we must always remember that Muslim terrorists are just a small - very small - insignificant minority of all Muslims. And that the majority of Muslims are peace-loving reasonable maniacs who advocate suicide-bombing.

I just love it when the governments in these countries lose control of their PR efforts, and reality peeks out for everyone to see and comment upon.

This just in, from a friend of my wife travelling Amtrak: her seatmates are emigrees from Sweden.
Their reason for leaving: the permission given to Muslims in Sweden (and many other Euro states) to live according to Sharia law in a parallel legal environment. The effective result of which is that rape is not a prosecutable offense. The Euros are abandoning ship in droves.

This came as a SHOCK to my wife's friend, a 60s Berkeley grad, in spite of my wife's insistence for the last few years that this is what has been happening. You know, it's all been Bush's fault.

I just hope that the Euro emigrees lose their multi-culti wimpiness when they get here. Not likely. But here's hoping.

Well gdude, just think of the fun to be had when some group calls for all those men in East Germany without women who joined Neo-Nazi organizations to come over and defend them. Which WILL happen.

After all, how will either Sweden or Germany stop them? Use force? Likely half their military and police would mutiny.

I understand the Weimar Republic better now. Refusing to fight simply means you lose. The Elites in the West refused to fight. So they lost. Enter the neo-Nazis.

"I was explaining that if the British government awards a knighthood to Salman Rushdie -- whose only credibility is that he wrote a blasphemous book -- then such action with encourage extremism," he told AFP.

"If someone blows himself up he will consider himself justified. How can we fight terrorism when those who commit blasphemy are rewarded by the West?" he said.


Indeed, Mr. ul-Haq. How can I possibly restrain my compatriots who would like to destroy Mecca when you discredit Islam so thoroughly? What is keeping non-Muslims from feeling justified in blowing themselves up to kill Muslims when you justify the behavior of Muslims when they emulate the customs of the Tamil Tigers?

I've got news for you, Mr. Ijaz ul-Haq. Most religions other than Islam regard Islam to be inherently blasphemous. Until recently, the words "blasphemy" and "Islam" were synonymous in the West, although the word usually used for Islam was "Mohammedanism" and the word usually used for Muslim was "Mohammedan". If you truly believe that those who utter blasphemy ought to be put to death, Mr. ul-Haq, you are welcome to volunteer to let your neck fall under the sword, as your justification of suicide bombing is blasphemy against the cause of freedom.

I do not support Rushdie getting a knighthood he is not that good a writer, however I will not tolerate being told by some bloody Islamoloony who can and cannot be honoured by the Queen.

Does this mean Mr. (Sir) Rushdie is now a member of the House of Lords (the British Senate)?

Imagine they succeed in their efforts to kill him or a sitting Senator, where it's not the act of a (believed / claimed to be) single fanatic (like the Palestinian that murdered Bobby Kennedy, or the soviet communist who took out his brother John) but an action endorsed by a the sitting heads of a sect of a religion.

Elizabeth the 1st would have acted. Will Mr. Blair's successor?

It always astonishes me that when some Islamic “leader” makes such a pronouncement that it never occurs to them than the adoption of a similar mindset by we in the West would have resulted in the absolute extermination of them as a race and the removal of all traces of their religion. Their failure to do similarly is due to their own incompetence rather than our smashing them down every so often.

And if we really were redneck nazis from hell, then there would be no Left left, either.

Here is something a friend just sent me:

A Somali arrives in Minneapolis as a new immigrant to the United States.

He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, Thank you Mr. American for letting me in this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and free education!"

The passerby says, "You are mistaken, I am Mexican."

The man goes on and encounters another passerby.

"Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America !"

The person says, "I not American, I Vietnamese."

The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand and says, "Thank you for the wonderful America !"

That person puts up his hand and says, "I am from Middle East, I am not American! "

He finally sees a nice lady and asks, "Are you an American?"

She says, "No, I am from Africa !"

Puzzled, he asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"

The African lady checks her watch and says..."Probably at work."

Took out a platoon of terrorists, to bad we had to engage an addidtional 28,000 US soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines to do it, at a combined cost of $300 million USD per day or aprox. $10 million USD per enemy killed on Tuesday, 19 June 2007.

$20 million per dead terrorist on a two day running average from Monday and Tuesday.

"the majority of Muslims are peace-loving"

Yeah, you've got that right. Millions of Muslims will march and riot and kill if somebody criticizes Islam, but it's hard to get even a half-dozen to speak out on against Muslim hate-mongering and violence.

And don't get me started on how most Muslims don't have an effing clue what Rushdie actually wrote. They haven't read it and only "know" what some lying imam said. (And judging from the [college-educated!] Muslims I have spoken with, they are incapable of understanding what Rushdie wrote.)

Kevin: A Knighthood is a lesser honour than a peerage. Usually given to Actors, Businessmen and Sports stars. A Peerage (Lord) tends these days to go to people who give Blair and the Labour party lots of money. As the recent scandal proves.

God save the Queen, indeed. I'll betcha she shows more sangfroid at the coming ructions than the Pope managed.

But really - what happens when Muslims have these little tantrums? A lot of headlines, a burnt McDonalds or two, and many many dead Muslim rioters. So it's all good. Go, Muslims, Go!

Reading the comments of the Muslim faithful at http://www.news.faithfreedom.org/ gives a good idea of the amount of actual thinking going on within the Allah-cult.

The more you learn about Islam the more you realize what an egregiously dysfunctional hate-filled doctrine it really is.

Folks what we are seeing world wide in this WW4, this 2,3,4GW, is a evidence of a war within the Ummah between Democratic Islam and Theocratic/Despotic Islam.

The Coalition and It's coattail riders have successfully stimulated and accelerated this war within the Ummah.

If the situation goes into a 5GW mode, there will be no "innocent civilians" all of us will be involved. Overreaction is not a solution unless the suggestion of RWE is implemented.

RWE's comment is very interesting because it dovetailes nicely with the NeoNAZI comments. Any of you ever read Turner Diaries?

God save the Queen indeed, heh heh! The Crazy "Redneck" Muslims have been stimulated again to do what they do best. What they are practicing is Qital, not Jihad.

Folks it takes a bit of effort to understand True Islam. What you are witnessing is corrupt "Islam".

DR

I can see that you have transitioned nicely from inane to insane.

Marouk

I base my understanding of Islam on the same Koran you would find in most American mosques and the biographies of Mohammed written by the most trusted biographers. For example these passages are about the slaughter of a Jewish tribe.

Qur'an 33:26 "Allah took down the People of the Scripture Book. He cast terror into their hearts. Some you slew, and some you made prisoners. And He made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, giving you a land which you had not traversed before. And Allah has power over all things." Version two: "And He drove the People of the Scripture down from their homes and cast panic into their hearts. Some you killed, and you made some captive. And He caused you to inherit their farms, houses, wealth, and land you have not trodden. Allah is ever Able to do all things."

Tabari VIII:35/Ishaq:464 "The Jews were made to come down, and Allah’s Messenger imprisoned them. Then the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina (it is still its marketplace today), and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and had them beheaded in those trenches. They were brought out to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men."

Tabari VIII:38 "The Messenger of Allah commanded that all of the Jewish men and boys who had reached puberty should be beheaded. Then the Prophet divided the wealth, wives, and children of the Banu Qurayza Jews among the Muslims." Ishaq:465 "When their wrists were bound with cords, the Apostle was a sea of generosity to us."

Ishaq:465 "Then the Apostle divided the property, wives, and children of the Qurayza among the Muslims. Allah’s Messenger took his fifth of the booty. He made known on that day the extra shares for horses and their riders - giving the horse two shares and the rider one. A Muslim without a horse got one share of the spoil. It was the first booty in which lots were cast."

How is one supposed to deal with these wisdome documents? They are the very foundation of Islam. And I am not being selective. There are hundreds of other similar passages - all with the same theme - murder, robbery, enslavement.

How is that a religion?

Where is the Islamic authority for your "Democratic Islam"?

Peter,

Point taken. In reply to your question of a democratic Muslim authority, there is one in Najaf, Iraq. He is Ayatollah Sistani, a great and extremely wise Shia scholar who belives in separation of Mosque and State.

Examples of slaughter are in the Talmud and Old Testament too. For example, what was Joshua commanded to do upon entering the promised land?

The Quraza Jews repeatedly broke treaties with the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and stabbed him in the back, betrayed him at several critical junctures. I guess that was a "final solution" similar to the one Joshua was given.

Thank you for the opportunity to debate. Doesn't this beat the heck out of a sword fight or gun fight?

I wish you had a blog just so I could see your profile.

I thank The Most High and Wretchard for this opportunity for debate with sharp minds.

Salaam eleikum and Victory over evil sir.

Good one, of course the very peaceful 'Muslims' are justified for destroying the whole world over this. What? The Queen can't Knight someone she likes? She can't knight someone that other people don't like?

But I'm sure Sir Rushdie has mixed emotions on this; the Queen has put him in much greater danger. Maybe he'll wish he had turned it down.

At least this incident will lose the terrorists even more of their dhimmidiot appeasers.

Islam in it's extreme is more political ideology than religion. In that way, it is only a 'Religion of Peace' in that when Islam rules the planet, there will be no one to be at war with. Where they are given an inch, they demand a mile. Islamic countries are becoming more extreme, extremists rule, they just keep quoting the Koran to justify their Jihad.


absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
appease religious killers

continue to spoil them
violent tantrums pay off
