In Numbers Dwell Certain Repugnant Effects

Islam The Unfaithful
Islam The Unfaithful

In numbers dwell certain repugnant effects. Around the globe fierce Islamic agitation in the public sphere is on the rise:

1/29/07 Daily Telegraph UK: 40% of Muslims, ages 16 to 24, want Sharia law; 13% admire al-Qaeda; 36% believe apostates should be executed; 75% believe that women should wear veils.
5/22/07 Reuters: 25% of young American Muslims believe in suicide bombings to fight the West.
7/10/07 worldpress.org: Poll of Muslims in Egypt, Morocco, Pakistan and Indonesia indicates that 75% believe in strict application of Sharia law.
7/27/08 Sunday Times UK: 33% of Muslim students support killing for islam; 33% want world Islamic law.
12/5/10 LA Times: A new Pew Research Center poll shows that majorities in Pakistan, Egypt, Jordan and Nigeria would favor changing the current laws to allow stoning as a punishment for adultery, hand amputation for theft and death for those who convert from Islam to another religion.

We can't wait long to deal with them:

2/09 The Finnish Ministry of Defense published a position paper stating: In 1991 there were approximately 300 mosques in Russia; today there are 8,000, financed by Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia.
1/30/09 Times UK: Muslim population multiplied 10 times faster than the rest of society.
7/10/10 Sunday Times, UK: Islamic law has been officially adopted in Britain, with Sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.
10/28/10 Daily Mail: In 2009 Mohamed (or variations of that name) was the most popular name for newborn boys in the UK.
1/26/11 Pew Research Poll: Globally, the Muslim population is forecast to grow at about twice the rate of the non-Muslim population over the next two decades—an average annual growth rate of 1.5% for Muslims, compared with 0.7% for non-Muslims. If current trends continue, Muslims will make up 26.4% of the world's total projected population of 8.3 billion in 2030, up from 23.4% of the estimated 2010 world population of 6.9 billion.

Eurabia Alive But Not So Well

No man survives when freedom fails;
the best men rot in filthy jails.
And those who cry "Appease, appease!"
are hanged by those they tried to please.

—Horace Mann

The best lack all conviction, while
The worst are full of passionate intensity.

—W.B.Yeats

Geert Wilders

RIGHT-WING Dutch legislator Geert Wilders, who is being prosecuted at home in Eurabia for anti-Islam remarks, said he was barred from entering Britain on Thursday after he landed in defiance of a government ban. Wilders wanted to show his film "Fitna," which argues that the Koran incites violence, in the British parliament. But he was told by British authorities on Tuesday that he was being excluded. Despite that, he took a flight to London.

"I am in a detention centre at Heathrow. I will not be allowed to enter the country. They will send me back within a few hours," Wilders told Reuters from the airport. "It is a very sad day, not only for me, but for freedom of speech," he said. The Home Office said he would not be allowed entry into the country, but gave no other details....

Wilders' exclusion caused a diplomatic spat between the Netherlands and Britain. And this is a story with hardly a peep from the mainstream media. It has come to this: If you are an Islamic radical, trained to carry out terrorist atrocities in al-Qaeda’s jihad against the United Kingdom, the British will welcome you with open arms. Not content with that, Great Britain will lobby insistently for your release from custody so that you may freely roam British streets—and the halls of Westminster.

If, by contrast, you are a duly elected representative in the democratic government of a country to which England is bound in the European Union, and you speak about the undeniable—though mulishly denied—nexus between Islamic doctrine and jihadist terror, Great Britain will slam her door in your face.

Free Speech Trial In The Netherlands

geert_wilders
On trial for telling truth...
THE BATTLE TO DEFEND free speech against Islamic attempts to snuff it out is stirring in the Netherlands. The outcome of this case will affect the whole world. "Anti-Islam lawmaker appeals hate speech charges," from The Associated Press today.

An Associated Press newspaper in Amsterdam has reported that a right-wing lawmaker says he has asked the Dutch Supreme Court to halt his prosecution on hate speech charges for anti-Islamic remarks. Bigot alert. Here we have a Dutch newspaper using the code "right-wing" to smear one of its own legislators. AP thus semaphores to its readers that Wilders is evil, not to be trusted, not to be supported.

But what century are we now living? Except in totalitarian regimes of which there are many examples, there is nothing "right wing" about supporting the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights of all people before the law against Islamic supremacism.

Geert Wilders says the remarks—including labeling the Qur'an a "fascist" work and calling for it to be banned—fall within the realm of normal discourse and his prosecution threatens his right to freedom of speech. In March 2008, Wilders released the film "Fitna," which juxtaposes Quranic verses with violent film clips and images of terrorism by Islamic radicals....

Those "Islamic radicals," of course, are the ones who actually connected the Qur'an with violence. But it isn't they who have aroused the anger of the Islamic world. It is only Wilders, because he is an Infidel who has dared to speak out against this religiously sanctioned violence.

Islamic Nations Rip Free Speech

Not exactly big news, But aren't we giddy that someone in the West is actually taking up this hot potato! Not that they will run with it very far before tossing it aside so as not to offend the offenders.

Geert Threat
Threat from Indonesia

The government of the world's most populous Islamic state says YouTube has two days to take down a Dutch lawmaker's provocative film on the Koran or it will block access to the popular video-sharing Web site. Yes. Islamic nations rip free speech every chance they get. The warning by Indonesia came as the U.N.'s primary human rights watchdog ended a month-long session amid allegations by Western member-states and non-governmental organizations that Islamic nations are working to curtail free speech.

Geert Wilder's 16-minute film linking Islam's revered text with terrorism has sparked protests in a number of countries. It also drew criticism from the Arab League, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and the European Union.

In Indonesia, a former Dutch colony, Information Minister Mohammad Nuh told a press briefing in Jakarta Tuesday he had sent a letter to YouTube demanding the film, "Fitna," be removed. If it did not comply, he said, the government in cooperation with Internet service providers would block the site.

As of early Wednesday afternoon Indonesian time, attempts to view at least one earlier-available upload of the movie on YouTube brought up a message saying, "This video has been removed due to terms of use violation."

But the film has been uploaded on YouTube by multiple users and can still be found with a simple search in both its English and Dutch versions...

Why not block it now? Why make such a big public issue? Because Islam is hypocritical about free speech just as it is about everything else. One rules for Islam. Another rule for kafir. They're trying to squeeze as much out of this puffed-up issue as they can because they're trying to publically "face down" the infidel. If they really want to block it, simply block it. No need to do or say anything else.

In Amsterdam Koran Poster Draws No Outrage

korantropen
Poster in Amsterdam apparently without incident

THE NETHERLANDS is suffering from Koran fever, but Amsterdam seems not to be affected. The Tropenmuseum has put up some two hundred posters of an Iranian Koran throughout the city, as part of an image campaign. There has been hardly any response.

The Netherlands is somewahat frazzled because of the plans of anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders to show a movie about the ‘Fascist’ Koran called Fitna. The Koran posters of the Tropenmuseum appearing during this Wilders controversy is a coincidence, for the posters were planned months ago.

Still, previous attacks on the Koran did play a role in the decision to choose this subject for the posters. “We wanted to show what kind of book it is”, says Dimitry van den Berg, the person at the museum who is responsible for the campaign. “But the most important reason to show this Koran was simply that it’s a very beautiful object”.

Van den Berg had expected that the Koran posters would elicit responses, but this was hardly the case. “Maybe a few people asked how to obtain the poster, but not more than usual”. Also, there are no indications that the posters have provoked more vandalism than usual. Some asked whether the man on the poster represents Muhammad, but that is not the case.

The campaign targets the so-called ‘cosmopolitans’ as defined by the Motivaction agency: people with an international orientation, often high-educated and with an interest in culture.

Previous analyses had revealed that the visitors of the museum mainly consist of cosmopolitans, post-materialists (idealists who vote Green Party) and post-modern hedonists (focusing more on experiences). Especially among cosmopolitans new visitors might be recruited, it was thought.

However, this did require some work on the museum’s image. Some people still associate the Tropenmuseum with colonialism, a stuffy Third World centre or educational activities for children, Van den Berg says. The current campaign intends to show that the museum has beautiful objects that have an interesting story to tell.

All posters show an authentic object against the background of a story painted by a contemporary artist. In the case of the Koran, the painting shows a man who consults a Mullah on which woman to choose. The Mullah reads the Koran and concludes that the woman on the right is the right one for him.

On the occasion of exhibitions on Morocco and Turkey, the Nieuwe Kerk organised activities to attract ethnic minority visitors. The Tropenmuseum does not engage in ethnomarketing, says Van den Berg. “We try to select themes that appeal to all Dutch people, including the new Dutch”.

The campaign will run until the end of this year. By then it will be evaluated whether the image of the museum has in fact changed.

Ex-Muslim Attacked In Netherlands

VOORBURG, THE NETHERLANDS—Ehsan Jami, the chairman of the committee for ex-Muslims, will be given extra security. The national anti-terrorism coordinator's office, the public prosecution department and the police decided during a meeting on Monday that "additional measures" are necessary for the protection of the 22-year-old Labour PvdA council member in Leidschendam-Voorburg. A spokesperson for the office of the national anti-terrorism coordinator (NCTb) reported this on Monday when asked. The extra measures are being implemented because Jami was attacked and beaten in Voorburg last weekend. No further details about the extra security measures are being released.

Jami did not want to say much about the attack earlier in the day on Monday. "I'm too emotional for that," the politician said. His advisor and publicist, academic Afshin Ellian, says that three men of ethnic background were waiting to attack Jami after he left a supermarket.

Ex-Muslim Ehsan Jami

He was struck twice and sworn at. Ellian says it is the third time that Jami has been ambushed like this recently. The attack has been reported to police.

Jami said in an interview previously that Mohammed was "a terrible man." He hopes his committee can help Muslims who turn away from Islam and put taboos in the Muslim world like domestic violence and human rights violations on the agenda.

Harry Oldersma, faction chairman of the PvdA in Leidschendam-Voorburg, was "shocked and angry" at the abuse suffered by his fellow party member. "It just isn't acceptable that you are beaten up for having an opinion. That crosses all boundaries."

Unfortunately, this attack was is a mere blip on the radar when in Thailand, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Gaza, Iraq, the Caucasians, Afghanistan, and in so many other places across the globe, people who speak out or wish to convert away from Islam are killed, maimed, raped, beheaded, and have their bodies dumped, daily, and few in the west seem to notice, or worse, they don't even care, but persist in making allowances and excuses for this murderous cult of deathworshippers.

A Matter Of Time Addicted To Crime

In Beirut, thousands of people protested on the streets, and the Danish General Consulate was stormed and set on fire. By March of 2006, at least 139 people died primarily during riots stemming from protests
QUESTION: From my third floor concrete and brick bunker I had briefly hoped that this Rushdie Knighthood situation would have grown more legs by now and become as widespread as the Danish Cartoons. Any reason why it hasn't?

ANSWER: Give them a little more time, it takes a while for them to get worked up into a lather. After the industrial strength Mohammed cartoons posted in the Jyllands-Poston in September 2005, it took 2 weeks before an estimated 3,500 Muslims in Denmark conducted a somewhat peaceful protest. Leadership had been caught flat-footed, so it took a while to incite enough soldiers of Allah to give a good bloody show of outrage.

Mohammed
Somebody Painted Mohammed
In November, several European newspapers re-published the images, triggering more protests. The deluge of foul spirits actually didn't began to ramp up until January of 2006, nearly 3 1/2 months later combining with a boycott of Danish goods. Several countries withdrew their ambassadors to Denmark, and widespread protests, some of them violent, flourished across Muslim lands great and small. The protests continued in February.

In Damascus, Syria, both the Norwegian embassy and a building containing the Dane, Dutch, and Chilean embassies were stormed and set on fire by protesters. In Beirut, thousands of people protested on the streets, and the Danish General Consulate was stormed and set on fire. By March of 2006, at least 139 people died primarily during riots stemming from protests.

These outbursts have the West trembling in its spit-shined shoes clinging to its money clips, little black books, and a horde of phony belief in their own personal santimony, terrified of a disruption in their wonderful daily lives, ignoring the threat posed by these pirates stealth and noisy, some sophisticated, others filled with snot, drunk on false religion. But alas, there comes a time when men and women are called to stand firm, risk all, face the beastly threat with all might and all faith in the One Who will deliver His people from the loquacious evil already festering within.

Thanks, Mackie, I needed that..
