How SouthPark bowed and submitted to Sharia Law

Filed under:General — posted by Jack on 8/30/2010 @ 8:07 pm

“Every accomodation non-Muslims make for Muslims moves our culture, our beliefs, and our legal systems one step closer to Sharia law.

The concession itself is the establishment of Sharia law.

Let’s look at an example. Around the world, Muslims react strongly when anyone criticizes Islam. Why? In Sharia law, it is forbidden to criticize either Islam or Mohammad. This is a precept of Sharia law.

Forbidding the criticism of any religion is certainly not a precept of a free society or of Western civilization. This means: To whatever degree Islamic supremacists succeed in silencing our criticisms of Islam, to that degree they have imposed Sharia law on non-Muslims.”

http://www.citizenwarrior.com/2010/07/concessions-to-islam-are-sharia.html

When SouthPark decided not to air episodes critical of Islam it was, at that very moment, an example of compliance to Sharia Law in the US. It is not a matter of Sharia Law maybe someday gaining ground in the US. It is already here. Every time someone chooses to not criticize Islam – they are submitting to Sharia Law. Penn Jillette is under Sharia Law – because he (understandably) did not want to put his family at risk by speaking out about Islam.

When you stay silent because the media has told you that objecting to Islam is “intolerant” or “against Freedom of Religion”, you are putting yourself under Sharia Law.

Saudi employer hammers 18 heated nails into the arms, legs and forehead of his Sri Lankan maid

An X-ray shows nails hammered into the body of a Sri Lankan maid.

Colombo, Sri Lanka (CNN) — Doctors at a Sri Lankan hospital operated for three hours Friday to remove 18 nails and metal particles allegedly hammered into the arms, legs and forehead of a maid by her Saudi employer.

She was held down by her employer’s wife while the employer hammered the heated nails … She apparently had complained to the couple that she was being overworked.

Ariyawathie, 49, is a mother of two children who were opposed to their mother’s journey to Saudi Arabia for work.

Many of the [Saudi] domestic workers are poor Asian women from Sri Lanka, Indonesia, India, Bangladesh, the Philippines and Nepal. Widespread abuse has been documented by global human rights groups.

Common complaints include unpaid wages, long working hours with no time for rest, and heavy debt burdens from exorbitant recruitment fees, said the Human Rights Watch report.

Isolation and forced confinement contribute to psychological and physical abuse, sexual violence, forced labor, and trafficking, the report said. The abuse often goes unchecked because of a lack of government regulation and protective laws.

SARCASM ALERT: I just don’t understand why narrow-minded, xenophobic, Islamophobic Americans are so unwilling to embrace Islam… although I am sure this was partly the woman’s fault somehow: maybe she offended the Saudi in some way or insulted his honor.

Muslim groups in Scotland boycotting Israeli produce

Filed under:Culture War — posted by Jack on @ 2:32 pm

Campaigners were on the streets of Glasgow yesterday, encouraging shopkeepers to boycott Israeli goods

In a move that has worried Jewish groups, Muslim families who own stores in Glasgow’s south side are refusing to stock Israeli goods in protest at Israel’s West Bank settlements and policy towards Palestinians.

Around 30 stores in Muslim communities in Pollokshields, Pollokshaws and Govanhill are supporting the drive and yesterday campaigners took to the streets to applaud shopkeepers who are no longer stocking Israeli products.

The campaigners, who toured stores handing out flyers to shoppers, say shops which continue to stock Israeli goods will be “named and shamed”.

Led by the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Friends of Al Aqsa Glasgow, many stores in the area are now displaying posters declaring “No Israeli Produce sold here”.

Those xenophobic French continue booting illegal immigrants out of the country – the UN is appalled

Filed under:General — posted by Jack on 8/27/2010 @ 6:09 pm

When a nations becomes convinced that a group has become a security threat, is it within their right as a nation to say, “You are no longer welcome here, we require you to go back to your home country”?

How is that “xenophobia”? A phobia, by definition, is irrational, not grounded in reason. What if there are genuine reasons for concern? What if illegal immigrants are creating a very real negative impact on a country? Why should a country not be able to make a decision on behalf of its citizens to not allow illegal immigrants?

A nation expects its citizens to respect and abide by its laws. Why should an outside group be allowed to ignore, disregard and trample on those laws – and still expect the host nation to provide for them?

Why is it that some people seem to think that the moral obligation of a country to provide care for illegal immigrants who have broken the law somehow trumps or is more important than the moral obligation of a country to look out for and protect the interests of its citizens?

What business does the UN have inserting itself into that process?

This story, regarding France deporting the Roma, or Gypsies:

A UN Watchdog Group is urging France to stop the collective deportation of Roma, also known as Gypsies.  The UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination calls collective expulsions a violation under international law.  The Committee monitors States’ implementation of the 1969 International Convention on the elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination.

“We understand that a State has a right and a responsibility to deal with security issues and issues of immigration and illegal immigration,” said Prosper.  “But, our view is when you are doing so, as we said, it should not be on a collective basis.  It should not be targeting a group as a whole.  Individual assessments need to be conducted and look at each particular circumstance of each individual and decide does he or she merit a return or should be allowed to stay.”

Prosper says the concerns of a state have to be balanced against human rights obligations, and protection and asylum needs.

France recently sent hundreds of Roma back to Romania and Bulgaria and dismantled more than 100 illegal camps.  The French government justifies its expulsion of the Roma on grounds of security.”

http://www.voanews.com/english/news/europe/UN-Urges-France-to-Stop-Collective-Deportation-of-Roma-101663143.html

First of all, why on earth is a person-by-person basis of deportation necessary if an entire group has flaunted a nation’s immigration laws and has become a drain on the nation’s resources?

Question: if the UN is so deeply concerned about “the elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination” why does it not speak out against the clear, blatant racial discrimination practiced – and taught – by Islam? Where are the calls for a dramatic change within Islam and it’s views of people who are not Muslim?

Where are the accusations of “xenophobia” for not only the practices of Islam, but what it teaches?

Selective tolerance is not tolerance. Unilateral tolerance is not tolerance. If Islam wishes to be shown more tolerance it must take the first step by showing tolerance itself – true tolerance and acceptance, not treating non-Muslims as second-class citizens or worse (dhimmis) and calling that tolerance.

We have been waiting over 600 years to see that. Still waiting.

But who am I? Let’s hear from someone who was born and raised in Islam: Salman Rushide.

He says, “One of the things that Liberal opinion in the West sometimes, I think, doesn’t understand is that there actually is an enemy. There actually is an enemy that means us harm, and is not just going to go away if you are nice to them. You don’t have to be a right-winger to believe this.”

I’m sure he’s just being xenophobic and racist and that the death threat that’s been hanging over him for years is mostly imagined.

Iran’s Judiciary Chief: Public Lashings are better than Prison Sentences

Filed under:General — posted by Jack on @ 12:20 am

Partly because of overcrowding in Iranian prisons, and partly because he feels public lashings are more of a deterrent than prison, Iran’s Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Shahroudi said that judges should issue lashings instead of prison sentences whenever possible.

Adultery between unmarried individuals: 100 lashes
Lesbianism: 100 lashes
False accusation: 80 lashes
Intoxication: 80 lashes

“Human rights activists and domestic press reported cases of political prisoners confined in the same wing as violent felons. There were allegations that authorities deliberately incarcerated nonviolent offenders with violent offenders, anticipating they would be killed… [and] juvenile offenders being detained with adult offenders.”

The same report indicates common methods of abuse in Iranian prisons, such as: prolonged solitary confinement with sensory deprivation, beatings, hanging detainees by the arms and legs, sleep deprivation and beatings with cables on the back, soles of the feet and the ears.”

The Secret of Oz: Fractional Reserve Lending

Filed under:General — posted by Jack on 8/25/2010 @ 12:58 am

The economy of the U.S. is in a deflationary spiral. Nothing can stop it — except monetary reform.
1. No more national debt. Nations should not be allowed to borrow. If they want to spend, they have to take the political heat right away by taxing.
2. No more fractional reserve lending. Banks can only lend money they actually have.
3. Gold money is NOT the answer. Historically gold ALWAYS works against a thriving middle class and ALWAYS works to create a plutocracy.
4. The total quantity of money + credit in a national system must be fixed, varying only with the population.

Chicago Six Flags sponsoring “Muslim Family Day” – the day after 9/11

Filed under:Culture War,War on Terror — posted by Jack on 8/24/2010 @ 12:00 am

MUSLIM DAY AT SIX FLAGS is being sponsored by the Islamic Circle of North America which openly supports HAMAS and Hezbollah and refuses to condemn them. It has been under investigation for fund-raising for and money laundering to Islamic terrorist groups.

Six Flags tells its employees: “Out of respect (to Islam), we request the employees wear their uniform pants, instead of their shorts ”no matter how hot it is”.

Better get used to it: your lives are going to change more and more as we are pushed into showing “respect” for Islam. Muslims in the Netherlands pressured cities to force construction workers to stop wearing shorts, too, because it “offended” them.

Well, it offends me that they would have the gall to put on a special Muslim celebration the day after 9/11. They are not shy about voicing their outrage over the slightest perceived insult, why should we sit quietly and let them insult the memory of those murdered by Islamic Purists?

It offends me that Somalian Muslim taxi drivers refuse service to Minnesotans who have alcohol in their bag.

It offends me that a Muslim bus driver in the UK refused to let a blind man on the bus because his guide dog is “unclean”.

It offends me that a Muslim father in Texas killed his teen-aged daughters because they dared to show affection for non-Muslim boys and wear -gasp- sweat pants.

It offends me that my kind, dedicated friends had to leave the Indonesian island of Sulawesi because they were afraid they would be killed for not being Muslim.

It offends me that CAIR tires to intimidate, bully and suppress anyone in the US who is critical of Islam.

It offends me that Islam treats women like property – and that they have intimidated NOW, that out-spoken advocate of women’s rights, to shut up and not make waves.

It offends me that Islam has intimidated people like Penn Jillette to not call “Bullshit” when he sees it, because he’s afraid someone will hurt his kids.

It offends me that Islam was able to even shut up the irreverent smart asses who created SouthPark.

It offends me that the violence of Islam appears to be working.

It offends me that Islam kills people who try to leave Islam.

It offends me that Islam advocates killing gay people.

If offends me that Islam says the hands of thieves should be cut off.

It offends me that Islam says that anyone who does not believe their Koran, does not “submit” to Allah, should be either converted, subjected to oppressive taxation and treated like dirt (dhimmi), or killed.

It offends me that Islam calls Jewish people “pigs” and “apes”

“Little Obama”

“Little is known about Barack Obama’s life as a kid growing up in Indonesia from ages six to 10, aside from the brief memories recounted in his book Dreams of my Father. But Little Obama, an imminent film from Indonesian production company Multivision Plus, promises to shed new light on the young “Barry” Obama.

Is the film going to be political?
“It’s just the story of a boy,” says Dematra. “It’s about his friendships, his hobbies, just a childhood story.” Although he hopes the film will show how Indonesia’s rich racial and religious melting pot shaped Obama’s character, Dematra says he “does not want the message of the film to be political in any way.” He is considering cutting a scene in which Obama tries on a sarong during Muslim prayer in case it is misinterpreted.”

Iran unveils new “Symbol of Death” (drone bomber)

Filed under:General — posted by Jack on @ 12:40 pm

This photo released by the Iranian Defense Ministry, shows Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as he speaks during a ceremony of inauguration of the Karrar, or striker in Farsi, which the Iran claims is the first domestically-built, long-range, unmanned bomber aircraft, at the Malek-e Ashtar University, 22 Aug 2010

“Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is hailing the country’s first domestically built drone bomber. The unmanned aircraft, unveiled Sunday, is the latest in a series of Iranian announcements of military advances.

The Iranian military displayed the drone, dubbed the Karrar – or “striker” – at a ceremony attended by top officials. State media say it can carry out long-range attacks up to 1,000 kilometers carrying a 200-kilogram bomb.

President Ahmadinejad called the Karrar a symbol of death to Iran’s enemies.”

First of all, does it seem strange to anyone else that they had this big unveiling at a University? Not making any inferences, just thought that was weird.

I certainly am glad that they have assured us that their nuclear plants are going to be used for peaceful purposes only [taqiyya] and they would never think of attacking anyone with nuclear weapons, even if they happened to accidentally make some [taqiyya] and really, they just want to get along, we don’t need to be at all anxious about them getting new missiles, new drones, all that stuff [taqiyya].

Once that new Cordoba House mosque is built in NYC, we will all learn how tolerant [taqiyya] and peaceful [taqiyya] Islam is. Now, the Cordoba House, that is not a symbol of death at all, it’s a symbol of togetherness and cooperation and peace [taqiyya]. They just want to be part of the American Dream [taqiyya] and have no intention at all of trying to change or overcome or tear down our culture [taqiyya].

Anyone who thinks that or says anything negative is just an ignorant bigot who is willing to trash Freedom of Religion in America [taqiyya].

Australian court rules that a Muslim woman must remove her burka while testifying

The full Islamic veil covers the whole body except the eyes and hands Photo: GETTY

An Australian court has ruled that a Muslim woman must remove her burka while she gives evidence so that the jury can assess her facial expressions.

Judge Shauna Deane of the Perth District Court said that it was “inappropriate” for the woman, only identified as Tasneem, to have her face covered while testifying in the A$752,000 (£433,000) fraud trial.

Lawyers for Tasneem, 36, had asked the judge to allow her to give evidence while wearing the burka because she had not removed the veil in public as an adult and would find the experience highly stressful.

However, the defence raised concerns about how the jury could assess her credibility if they could not see her face. They argued that wearing the garment was a cultural, not a religious, choice and that even in Islamic courts women were required to remove the veil.

Ground Zero Mosque Imam Rauf: ‘New York is the capital of the world and this location close to 9/11 is iconic.’

Filed under:General — posted by Jack on 8/20/2010 @ 8:58 pm

Robert Spencer, the JihadWatch blogger:

“The idea here that will be widely understood is that this mosque is another triumphal mosque, another victory mosque [like] the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the site of the Temple Mount and the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus,” Spencer told WND today.

“The reason for the interest in this property in particular is its iconic status in relation to the 9/11 attacks. This is something the Imam Rauf has said himself. It’s not something I’m attributing to him,” Spencer explains.

“In his own words he said, ‘New York is the capital of the world and this location close to 9/11 is iconic.’ He was happy that his mosque would be at the site of the building [where] the wreckage fell on 9/11,” Spencer said.

The al Shabaab campaign to rid Somalia of all non-Muslims

Filed under:Culture War,War on Terror — posted by Jack on @ 8:42 pm

Madobe was born in a Somali village. He was orphaned as a child and was raised as a Christian despite his Islamic family name. He eventually became a pastor of a small underground church in his home village.

One morning Madobe was brutally murdered by members of an Islamic extremist group called al Shabaab. Just two weeks prior, Madobe had narrowly escaped being kidnapped by the same group.

Madobe’s death is unique because he was not a convert from Islam… as are most of the Somalis executed for such reasons.

The al Shabaab militants who killed Madobe prohibited his body from being buried and ordered that it be left to the dogs to be an example to other Christians. They remarked, “Leaving his body outside is a warning to all that infidels are a disgrace to Muslims.”

The al Shabaab militia has recently embarked on a brutal campaign to rid the country of all non-Muslims.

BTW: al Shabaab is the group that Somalian Muslims in Minnesota were raising money for – going house to house, asking for donations to “feed the hungry” when in fact they were raising money to support the terrorist group,  al Shabaab

Despite repeated defeats in court, the Council on American-Islamic Relations continues its desperate attempt to thwart WorldNetDaily’s exposure of its radical aims, this time with a deposition “fishing” for information on WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah.

In a “clear attack on the First Amendment,” CAIR wants to know all about how the devastating, best-selling expose “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America” was published, financed and put together, says Daniel Horowitz, one of three high-profile lawyers representing WND and “Muslim Mafia” co-author P.

The Republican National Committee resolved this month that the Census Bureau behaves “exactly as a scam artist would, asking very personal questions,” and called the survey “a dangerous invasion of privacy,” and “overreaching and intimidating.” The committee said the Census Bureau was “spending millions of tax dollars to violate the rights and invade the personal privacy of United States citizens.”

The resolution invokes the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable searches and notes that the Constitution mandates a count only every 10 years — to reapportion seats in the House of Representatives.

Bryan Fischer makes the case that not only should the Ground Zero mosque be stopped, the construction of ALL mosques should be halted – not as oppression of religion, but to limit the threat of home-grown terrorists being raised and indoctrinated in our own cities.

Powerful Democrat defends my position on mosques

by Bryan Fischer

“I have argued that building permits can and should be denied for the building of mosques in American cities because each mosque is a potential or actual recruitment and training center for terrorism against the United States.

Mosques cannot claim protection under the First Amendment for the simple reason that the agenda of Islam is the total destruction of Western civilization in general and America in particular.

More than 100 verses (109 to be exact) in the Koran call upon Muslims to shed innocent infidel blood.

There may be moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as moderate Islam. And until we have a foolproof way of knowing when moderate Muslims will suddenly turn devout and start shooting up idolaters, like Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan did, then the risk is simply too great to allow their indoctrination centers to sprout like weeds.

Ex-PLO member: Ground Zero Mosque imam, Abdul Rauf, is NOT a moderate

Filed under:Culture War,War on Terror — posted by Jack on @ 6:15 pm

Remember “taqqiya”: not only is it OK for a Muslim to lie to kufar (infidels = anyone not a Muslim), if it furthers the cause of Islam, lying to kufar is encouraged by Islam.

Do not make the mistake of thinking Islam is a religion, with the same values of  honesty towards everyone. Honesty is encouraged, but only towards other Muslims. Expect to be lied to if you are an infidel.

Research it, check it out for yourself.

“A former member of the Palestine Liberation Organization has monitored Arabic language traffic in Middle East that reveals the controversial “Ground Zero” mosque imam is not a moderate at all.

The Islam critic explains that the organizer spearheading the Ground Zero mosque outlined his manifesto for the infiltration of secular governments like that of the United States by means of “peaceful lobbying efforts.”

Walid Shoebat small”What he is suggesting is to make the governors and the political institutions consult Muslim institutions and Muslim personalities like himself…in the field so as to ensure that the decision-making…reflects the spirit of sharia, to make Muslim personalities so they can begin to influence the government and so they can become consultants to the government,” Shoebat reports. “And then they make sure that the laws are within the spirit of sharia Islamic laws.”

He points out that Abdul Rauf has already taken a step toward his goal by getting a State Department-funded trip to the Middle East to be an envoy for alleged “peaceful” Islam.

For all you Islamophobes out there: a taste of Saudi Sharia Law.

Filed under:Culture War,War on Terror — posted by Jack on @ 5:31 am

The next time someone accuses you of being a xenophobe for having concerns about the growing influence of Sharia Law, tell them this little story:

“A Saudi judge has asked several hospitals whether they would punitively damage a man’s spinal cord after he was convicted of attacking another man with a cleaver and paralysing him, local newspapers reported today.

Saudi Arabia enforces strict sharia law and occasionally metes out punishments based on the ancient code of an eye for an eye.

Abdul-Aziz al-Mutairi, 22, was left paralysed after a fight more than two years ago, and asked a judge to impose an equivalent punishment on his attacker under sharia law, reports said.”

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/aug/19/saudi-arabia-judge-paralyse-convict

Let me ask you: do you really want this kind of thing covered under “Religious Freedom”? Some European countries already let Muslim communities implement Sharia Law within their groups. Not something I would want to see happen in America.

Reminds me of that old joke about paranoia: you’re not paranoid if someone really is out to get you. Is it possible that you’re not an Islamophobe if Islam really is scary?

Here’s another example that should cause some folks from California to think twice:

This might sound insensitive, but I have to laugh when I see “Progressives” who express outrage over Christians daring to voice their view that homosexuality is not just another option, but say nothing – nothing! – about Islams harsh punitive system.

Maybe they are afraid to say anything…
