Extermination of Iraqi Artists

One wonders if the website I found this morning in a search for Iraqi work has incriminated these artists who have posted there. The colorful work of these painters is certainly exquisite, if mildly derivative of past Western art movements, but then, the same can be said for most of the contemporary painting populating Western galleries. We however, must not neglect to record our disgust with these code-bound jihadists of every stripe who have crawled out of the rubble of American intervention to murder and oppress their own people, but this is what we are fighting, people, if not over...

Beautiful Atrocities

n the spirit of Lewis Carroll and Jack Benny, two comedians who probably had nothing in common but the number 39, we here at the Two-Fisted Forum welcome a new voice to our Blogroll. The ferocious gay voice of Beautiful Atrocities is no longer in the closet about the threat posed by Islamic forces in their world and ours. Let's start here with the laughs. And once you have finished with your history lesson, try keeping your head with this one. And while we are at it, here's a wonderful post by an observer named Karl, posting at Jihad Watch:...

From London and elsewhere we hear that textbooks used in Iran's schools are instilling students with hatred toward the West, especially the United States, and urging them to become "martyrs" in a global holy war against countries perceived to be enemies of Islam, a new study says. An Iranian human rights activist, Ghazal Omid, praised the findings, saying they prove hard-liners in Iran are using the books to turn children into "ticking bombs." However, an American academic who specializes in Iran and Islam, and a former Iranian teacher said they believe the textbooks are a reflection...


Save Ethiopia From The Wolves

osted on Jihad Watch by Hugh Fitzgerald, the following article makes clear YET AGAIN the ridiculous posture American and other Western politicians have taken toward Muslim aggressors anywhere they find them across the global with one notable exception—Afghanistan—and that was only a quarter measure of the necessary response because these same leaders were too busy planning an attack on Iraq instead of focussing on a clean victory in Taliban territories. But I digress: Talk to Ethiopian Christians in the West. Ask them about their fears. Not fears or memories of this or that regime, of Mengistu and the Derg, or...
