(17Sept 06) “…Listen to this: "Make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home: an evil fate." Or then again, this: "Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends." Then there is the instruction to fight against those who are not of the true faith "until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued"….All are direct quotations from the Koran, which Muslims believe to be the absolute word of Allah, and which cannot be altered. If you seek even more ferocious attacks on Christianity and Judaism, you will find them in the Hadith, Islam's other great book of scripture. Week after week in those lands where Muslims rule and Christians are a minority, the message pours out from the mosques: "God did not have a son." Is this what they mean by "Muslim tolerance'? By Peter Hitchens, The Mail on Sunday “…For years Liberals in the West have spread the myth of "Muslim tolerance". It does not exist and never did. Where Islam rules, other faiths must cringe in humiliated subjection. These are facts. Is it not astonishing that this militant, angry religion, whose name means not "Peace", but "Submission", whose whole existence is based on the denial and rejection of its rivals, dares to get into a self-righteous rage over an obscure quotation in a dull academic lecture by the head of the Roman Catholic Church? In Islam it is still the year 1427. They have had no reformation…If we bow to this manufactured, hypocritical fury, then we will already have lost one of the most important battles to face us. Back the Pope…”
(16Sept 06) “…Since his (the Popes) comments, the issue has escalated, in a manner similar to the escalation of the furor over the Danish cartoons . Even though the Pope's comments were extracted out of context, it could well be that the issue will, like the cartoons, provoke violence from Muslims, and thereby prove the validity of Manuel Paleologos II's analysis of Islam. Muslims themselves will not appreciate any irony in using violence to prove that Islam is nonviolent….Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood has condemned the speech and has said that Islam was a religion of "peace and reason", which does not explain why Qaradawi supports the killing of Israeli civilians by suicide bombers….” Popes comments on Islamic violence may lead to Islamic violence “…One comment the Pope had made in his speech, which came from himself and not from the 14th century Byzantine Emperor Manuel Paleologos II was this: "Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul." This comment is probably far more challenging to Islam than Paleologos' simple truthful statement. The fact that Mohammed went to war against unbelievers is something Muslims at one hand seem proud of, even though on the other hand they lie that that Islam means "peace", when it literally means "submission.” To say: "Violence is incompatible with the nature of God" indicates that Mohammed, the high priest of violent jihad, was not "of God", which any sane analyst outside of Islam would have to admit was true. Since when did men of God kill civilians , indulge in genocide (against the Banu Qurayzah tribe in Medina ) and have sex with nine year old girls ? This issue will run and run, I fear, and it will end in bloodshed of innocents. Such is always the way of Islam when it feels "offended". The cartoon protests in February, when at least 30 people died, are proof of that….”
(18 May06) “…Which two of the following three things are so obviously dangerous that they've just been banned? And which one was this week declared safe for distribution?
Exhibit A: Free Bibles placed by Gideons International in the bedside cupboards of public hospitals.
Exhibit B: A jokey TV commercial in which Wogs Out of Work's George Kapiniaris complains about an Indian call centre.
Exhibit C: A book sold last year by Sydney's Islamic Bookshop that praises suicide bombing as "legitimate and praiseworthy" and says it's best to "wire up one's body, or a vehicle or a suitcase with explosives, and then to enter among a conglomeration of the enemy and to detonate"…. Yes, it's the Bibles and the Indian joke that have been banned for the immense harm they might do.
And it's the jihad book, Defence of the Muslim Lands, that the Australian Federal Police and Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions this week said could be sold without fear of prosecution for inciting violence… Oh my God!! A Bible by Andrew Bolt
Herald Sun “…Imagine the trauma one of our ethnic friends might feel if he or she opened the drawer and found . . . OH MY DIFFERENT GOD, a Bible.
Professional pain-avoiders have averted this catastrophe by removing every single Bible from the bedsides of leading public hospitals in Victoria, South Australia and Queensland…It seems the real racists -- the real troublemakers -- are the multiculturalists who assume Muslims are so intolerant they can't safely be shown a Bible, or denied their own books that preach such violence.
And once more we should heed the warning -- especially in Victoria , where we prosecute two Christian pastors who warn against jihad but tolerate the most radical imams who preach it…”

(25April06) “…Who would have thought that Belmont University of Nashville, Tennessee, would apply the Islamic law to its staff? But just that happened earlier this month….Bill Hobbs, a Republican political advisor, blogger, and news writer for Belmont, which bills itself as "the largest Christian university in Tennessee," was upset in February 2006 about the cowardice of the American media in not publishing the Danish cartoons. So he drew a primitive cartoon of his own and posted it on his personal site…” Islamic Law at Belmont U by Daniel Pipes “…It sat in obscurity until April 5, when a Democratic political operative, Mike Kopp, wrote about it, calling it a bizzare page with the heading Draw Mohammed that spotlights a stick drawing of the Prophet Mohammed holding a bomb. The cartoon is entitled "Mohammend Blows." Under the cartoon Hobbs issues an invite to "exercise your right to free expression by drawing pictures of Islam's Prophet Mohammed". He ends the post with the phrase "Here's my first mo-toon." All this was posted at 12:40 pm, on Friday, February 24, 2006…”
(4April06) CAIR (Council on American and Islamic relations) is one of the peak Muslim organisations in the United States and breaks bread at the highest levels of government. That is what makes this case all the more interesting and frightening.
“…Andy Whitehead and ACAIR (Anti-Council on American-Islamic Relations) have something to celebrate: CAIR has dropped its $1.35 million lawsuit against him….It also provides interest for any cases that CAIR may have brought up against other Americans in their quest to intimidate their critics. (think the two Dannys) CAIR's intimidation through lawsuits has always been its line of defense against critics..” Freedom of speech prevails “..ACAIR reminds our readers that CAIR was started by Hamas members and is supported by terrorist supporting individuals, groups and countries." "Why oppose CAIR? CAIR has proven links to, and was founded by, Islamic terrorists. CAIR is not in the United States to promote the civil rights of Muslims. CAIR is here to make radical Islam the dominant religion in the United States and convert our country into an Islamic theocracy along the lines of Iran ..”

(28Mar06) “…We have a new cartoon-blasphemy scandal. No, it's not Islamists burning down Kentucky Fried Chicken stores in Pakistan because a few Danish cartoonists had the gall to draw the prophet Mohammed. Now it's Scientology versus the popular and hilarious cartoon television program South Park . And the Scientologists, like the Islamists before them, are winning…. News reports say that Viacom, the company that owns the Comedy Central cable channel, made the decision. Viacom also owns Paramount movie studios, which has spent a small fortune on Mission : Impossible III starring Cruise, a Scientologist. He denies any connection. Viacom refuses to say why it hasn't put the episode back on the air. South Park fans have started a petition. And so we are back where we were with the Mohammed cartoons. Someone somewhere won't let you see the Scientology episode of South Park . You can go to the Comedy Central website and view it on the internet - the last refuge for free speech..” Oh my God, they killed satire by Andrew Sullivan in The Australian “…A free society survives partly because the powerful are mocked, and their pretensions undermined. Religions, which guard their own illusions carefully, are particularly ripe for satire. Whenever one human being is claiming to tell the truth about the meaning of life he is making a very powerful claim - and, in a free society he also runs the risk of getting a raspberry. Laughter matters because piety begets power. Orwell once remarked that one reason fascism never took off in Britain was because the sight of a goose-stepping soldier would prompt your average Englishman to giggle. Someone is now silencing the giggles. And our world is a lot creepier because of it.
(20Mar06) “'The best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market.'  So propounded Justice Holmes in 1919…. Over the years, this marketplace of freedom has given no quarter; nothing has escaped examination. Whether Christian, Jew, agnostic, militarist, communist, capitalist, bigamist, entrepreneur or pacifist; all and much more have been the target of opposing speech and passionate intellectual scrutiny…” The Market Place of Ideas: fusing history, law and current events by David Kennedy Houck “…The western media as a whole has largely retreated from protecting free speech, and has instead decided to cave-in into Islamist totalitarianism. Equally unfortunate, most Americans have not seen the Danish cartoons, despite the fact that they represent a major international story. Rather than display the mostly innocuous drawings, most American media outlets fell all over each other seeking that elusive moral high ground where disparaging Christianity is safe and easy, and protecting Muslims from insult is the only sensible tack….”
UK - Muslim Censorship at the Telegraph?
(14Mar06) "Is the Telegraph going the way of the BBC and censoring any report critical of Muslims or Islam? Looks that way. Earlier today I posted about a Telegraph article that showed Britain was headed towards a Muslim state within a state, being withdrawn and replaced with this warning: "This story has been removed for legal reasons". Now comes word that the Telegraph has dropped Mark Steyn's column. Steyn regularly writes articles critical of Muslims and Islam. So, why drop Steyn now? His latest article may give you a clue. Here's the title: "Media shockingly ignorant of Muslims among us".
Can the pace of converting Britain to an Islamic state happen any faster?
The UK Telegraph had an interesting article by Dr Patrick Sookhedo The day is coming when British Muslims form a state within a state' which was originally published on February 19. For some mysterious reason, this article was recently withdrawn from its archives "for legal reasons."… Western Resistance is an American-registered site, and under terms of US copyright law, an article can be reproduced in its entirety, for the purpose of review . I can find nothing within this article which appears to be in any contradiction of British Law, so the question remains: What were the "legal reasons" for withdrawing the article? No-one is slandered, and the only reason that seems to spring to mind is more to do with Islamist threat. So in the name of "review", it is our public duty to reproduce this article in its entirety, as the unanswered questions concerning its withdrawal need to be examined. "
(5Mar06)“…A prominant Christian convicted of vilifying Muslims says the NSW Parliament has exposed a ‘bad law' by rejecting legislation to limit religious freedom….The Anti-Discrimination Amendment (Religious Tolerance) Bill was overwhelmingly defeated yesterday in the Legislative Council…Pastor Danny Nalliah of Victoria's Catch the Fire Ministries, who is appealing his vilification ruling in the Supreme Court, says the defeat of the bill will help church leaders fight to repeal Victoria's controversial Racial and Religious Tolerance Act..” NSW votes for religious freedom “..Mr Nalliah and fellow pastor Daniel Scot have refused to apologise to the Islamic Council of Victoria for comments made about Muslims, the Koran and Jihad at a church seminar in 2002… The Anti-Discrimination Amendment (Religious tolerance) Bill was soundly defeated in the NSW Upper House by 23 to 5 votes….The bill was supported by just the three Greens Party members, Democrat Dr Arthur Chesterfield-Evans, and Independent member, the Hon Peter Breen…”
(2Mar06) “…A friend of mine took his young daughter to visit the famous City Lights bookstore in San Francisco, explaining to her that the place is important because years ago it sold books no other store would — even, perhaps especially, books whose ideas many people found offensive…..it did occur to him that perhaps the long-delayed English translation of Oriana Fallaci's new book, "The Force of Reason," might finally be available, and that because Fallaci's militant stance against Islamic militants offends so many people, a store committed to selling banned books would be the perfect place to buy it. So he asked a clerk if the new Fallaci book was in yet. "No," snapped the clerk. "We don't carry books by fascists." The fascists of free speech By Catherine Seipp, Los Angeles Times “… It's particularly repugnant that someone who fought against actual fascism in World War II should be deemed a fascist by a snotty San Francisco clerk…Strangest of all is the scenario of such a person disliking an author for defending Western civilization against radical Islam — when one of the first things those poor, persecuted Islamists would do, if they ever (Allah forbid) came to power in the United States, is crush suspected homosexuals like him beneath walls….Yet those most oppressed by political Islam continue to defend it…”
(25Feb06) “…It should be obvious to even the most unobservant among us that the choreographed reaction to the Danish editorial cartoons has been a very methodical and well-thought-out plan by intellectual Islamic leaders… The world-wide “outrage” expressed by Muslims was not spontaneous…. As with any entity, there must be someone in charge. There must be someone calling the shots and approving the plans. The world now knows who a few of those people are… this Islamic government is not new. In 2003, a group of 225 Islamist clerics, scholars, and businessmen, including Laban and Al-Qaradawi, met in Saudi Arabia to plan the future actions of Islam and to network the supporters of global jihad against the evil “crusading” West…” Islamic Leaders Step Out From Behind the Curtain by Barbara J. Stock “…Islam needed direction and leadership and this group was there to provide just that… Certainly, not all the plans can be roadside bombs and stupid young men willing to blow themselves up. Political plans must be made. Changes in the West must come from within. The world is now witness to some of those plans… So what has this foray into politics won for Islam? It has gotten Islam plenty…. Australia has passed a law making it an offense to “blaspheme” Islam. Any person convicted must pay a fine and apologize to Muslims everywhere. Daniel Scot has already been arrested under the new law and is forcing what he considers to be a violation of his rights to the highest court in the land… The Islamic government's message was received loud and clear. Do not speak badly about Islam. Do not dare to tell the truth about Islam or it will send the expendable pawns out to riot and kill and burn ….”
(19Feb06) “…It is now abundantly clear that the recent murderous protests over cartoons of the prophet Muhammad published in a Danish newspaper last September were anything but spontaneous. The actions of Islamist agitators and financiers have deliberately drummed up rage among far-flung extremists otherwise ignorant of the Danish press…As first reported by the Italian terrorism expert Lorenzo Vidino on the Counterterrorism Blog, one of Denmark's leading Islamists, Imam Ahmed Abu-Laban, led a delegation late last year to visit influential figures in the Muslim world…” The Cartoon Jihad by Olivier Guitta “…Even after the riots began, Abu-Laban continued his meddling. On February 4, he told Islamonline.net that Danish demonstrators were going to burn Korans in the streets of Copenhagen , a falsehood that nevertheless added fuel to the fire… Abu-Laban's extremist connections are well established. A Palestinian who is close to the Muslim Brotherhood, he was expelled from the United Arab Emirates in 1984 for his fiery sermons and denunciations of local leaders…”
(12Feb06) Thank God for the Pajama Clad Revolutionaries, the universe of the Bloggers. Here's the proof that “Cartoongate” is a hypocritical beat up of criminal dimensions. This is the Egyptian newspaper Al Fager of October 17 th 2005 . As is pointed out this was in the holy month of Ramadan and there was not a single protest called in Cairo against either Denmark or the newspaper.
