Must See Video- Dispatches: Undercover Mosque
Trying to discover just exactly what the "ultimate insult" to Islam really is.
o Muslims committed the huge blunder of revealing their vulnerability [cartoon flap]. Now the world knows what hurts them. When you find your opponentâs weak spot, it is exactly where you want to hit himâ¦ If Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated.
o Muslim psychologyâ¦is all pomposity and bravado. I give you my word that if Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated. Shame is a great motivator as well as deterrent. Do not underestimate the power of ridicule. This is serious stuff not a laughing matterâ¦
o How much ridicule is enough? Until it hurts. The pain of shame must become bigger than the comfort of clinging to this false fetish. When you see their eyes are popping out of their eyeballs, their veins bulging in their necks, foam forming at their mouths, and they are ready to explode, you know that the remedy is working. Give them more. They will either die of heart attacks or they will come to their senses and recover from this insanity.
o Every one of us must become a cyberwarrior and mock Muhammad, Islam and the Muslims. Use your talent. Draw cartoons based on the hadith and the Quran. You can find tons of ridiculous stuff in these books to lampoon. Write articles, lyrics, jokes, plays, do whatever you can to ridicule Muhammad the prophet pretender and Muslims. Donât heed to their howls and cries.
No, Tony did not say what we assert in the title above. It's just that he might as well have done so. Here are some of the things he did say, as reported in the cited article, and a few that did not make it to publication.
Blair Seeks to Improve Understanding Between West, Islam
By Patrick Goodenough
CNSNews.com International Editor
March 31, 2006
(CNSNews.com) - As Britain becomes the latest Western country to reach out to Indonesia, Prime Minister Tony Blair and his Indonesian counterpart agreed to set up a joint "forum" intended to reduce misunderstandings between Islam and the West.
At the same time, he expressed regret that "the West and Islam often walk and talk past each other, rather than to each other"...The form of Islam practiced by the majority of Indonesians is widely described as moderate...
A forum, or advisory group, to be set up between the two governments "...will send a signal, and be a symbol to the outside world about how we believe that a future based on tolerance and respect for others will allow the world to make progress," he said. The two countries' foreign ministries will work on setting up the forum, and Blair said he would work with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to ensure it was effective...
After his meeting with clerics, the head of the Muhammadiyah movement - Indonesia's second largest mainstream Muslim group, which boasts some 30 million members - said the group had told Blair he should pull British troops out of Iraq, as their presence their was stoking extremism.
The rest never made it to publication, but we were able to obtain it through "secretive" means, thanks to our extensive contacts in all of Islamia and to have it "declassified."
Following the lead of the highly effective United Nations, Blair, in adopting this sure-fire-success of a forum idea, fully rejected what Mark Twain once said: "It's a terrible death to be talked to death."
Also rejecting this and everything else on earth were the Indonesian Islamic clerics who chewed on Blair's derriere until it bled. After their meeting with Blair, the clerics said that letting Blair walk out of their meeting with his head still on showed how much they were exhibiting tolerance and respect for others. The clerics prompty partied in the mosque, decapitating a goat in Blair's honor, after passing the goat around carnally.
When asked by the only rational reporter present how he thought he could ensure effectiveness of anything, given the nature of Islam, Blair and Bambag the First promptly ordered the reporter sent to shari'a court on the charge of interfering with wish fulfillment fantasies, and utterly spoiling the party with his bad attitude.
Blair told the audiences that he knew all he needed to know about Islam, and he was going to make cooperation work even if he had to give away the entire United Kingdom to Islamia. Blair concluded his remarks by quoting from a statement jointly developed with President Bush, remarks omitted by the MSM.
There are just so many Islams that we have made a decision to go with what the Islamists say it is. We know it to be "moderate," loving, charitable, non-aggressive, non-petulant, just as the Islamists say it is. We do not need to read any books because all of them these days say what we don't want to hear.
We are just head-over-heels in love with all this harmony with the religion of peace. Anyone following our example is likely to become head of the class. In fact, it is better to lose one's head over such love and brotherhood than for any other reason.
"Greetings,Three things I've learned from Mohammed's Believe It or Else, according to the author's citations from the Hadith:
"It is with great regret that I must go into hiding.
"This is a result of the multiple death threats I have received for my comic book, which depicts the truth about the teachings of the prophet Mohammed. I am earnestly confused about this matter. I have spoken honestly and truthfully about Islam and its teachings. All quotes in the comic book are directly from the Qu'ran and the agreed Hadiths.
"Why does a religion of peace seek to kill me for being honest? What do they have to hide?
"I hope to return when I am free to speak once again.
"Abdullah Aziz (Author or the World Renowned Comic Book, 'Mohammed's Believe It or Else!'"
"Why Mock Islam? Because it is therapeutic! Mocking is a very powerful way to convince those who are unwilling to think to do it. Shame is a great motivator....Mohammed's Believe It or Else is beautifully illustrated and printed on glossy paper. Get your own copy, digital download or hard copy, and feel free to read it while eating a ham sandwich.
"Do not underestimate the power of ridicule. This is not a laughing matter. Mock Muhammad and Islam as this will eventually help the Muslims get rid of their cult. They must feel embarrassed for calling themselves Muslim.
"This therapy works. I have seen it work many times....
"Today Muslims become angry if you ridicule their faith, but once they are free from this bondage of the mind they will thank you for it.... "
US man in Bush murder plot sentenced to 30 years
The municipal workers are doing this:
"Pro-islamic municipalities in Turkey are killing stray dogs, animal rights groups claim...."And two of the dogs were sexually abused. Apparently, the taboo of being around dogs can be suspended if a horny Muslim is around.
I promise: I am not making up the following. I heard the following on a newscast recently. Here is the gist of the story.
It seems that somewhere-in-Islamia, a Muslim married couple were sleeping through the night. The man, however, muttered in his sleep, and, over the night, he uttered "divorce" three times. The couple awoke, under Sharia, to find themselves divorced.
They went to Sharia court to reconcile this matter since they did not want to be divorced. However, the court gray-beard informed them that there was no reversal or annulment possible under Islam. The woman had to move out pronto.
To be able to return as wife to her original husband, she must (1.) marry another man, and (2.) that man must divorce her. Only then can she remarry the man she was married to until he talked in his sleep.

"During the Beltway Sniper crisis, back in the fall of 2002, a series of articles in The Washington Times described John Allen Muhammad’s conversion to Islam, and his later break with the Nation of Islam (the articles are no longer available, but extracts have been preserved here). Apparently the NOI was not militant enough for Mr. Muhammad, and he left it to become involved with a group called Jamaat ul-Fuqra (Arabic for 'community of the impoverished'), a terrorist organization founded by a notorious Pakistani cleric, Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani."From today's Washington Post, here is an excerpt from an article entitled "Muhammad Asks to Defend Himself":
"Sniper John Allen Muhammad has written a letter to a Maryland judge saying he wishes to represent himself during his first-degree murder trial because he has "no confidence or trust" in the two public defenders assigned to the case.Perhaps Muhammad wants to live after all. Or perhaps he's looking for a forum in which to explain his commitment to Islam. Perhaps Moussaoui's model in court has inspired Muhammad:
"'I'm very patience, now I have no more patience with Paul and/or Brian,' Muhammad wrote in a three-page letter, referring to Montgomery County public defender Paul DeWolfe and Brian Shefferman, two well-respected lawyers. 'All they have done is "lied" to me over and over Can you help me, I knew that I would need to fight in the court room but I didn't know that I would need to do that out side of the court room.'
"Montgomery Circuit Court Judge James L. Ryan filed Muhammad's handwritten letter as a motion and scheduled a hearing for tomorrow to discuss its merits.
"'We expect to fully address the issues Mr. Muhammad addressed in his letter before Judge Ryan,' DeWolfe said yesterday. He declined to respond in greater detail to the letter.
"Muhammad wrote that he would appreciate 'stand-by' attorneys 'to assistance me in mine defence. Not to defend me in mine defence.'
"Muhammad said he has tried unsuccessfully to get his attorneys to tell the court that he wants to represent himself because 'I don't want what happened in Va. on the first day of the trial.'
"Muhammad, 45, fired and re-retained his attorneys during his Virginia murder trial in the fall of 2003. He was sentenced to death in March 2004 after being convicted of killing one of 10 people slain during the sniper shootings that terrified the Washington area in October 2002.
"He is scheduled to go on trial May 1 on charges that he randomly killed six people in Maryland with a high-powered rifle in the 2002 slayings. Lee Boyd Malvo, 20, who is alleged to be his accomplice and who also has been convicted of murder in Virginia, is scheduled to be tried in October...."
"Moussaoui Says He Was to Hijack 5th Plane"Does a Muslim's taking the oath in a courtroom now mean that his testimony is automatically subject to suspicion? That idea certainly opens a new can of worms!
"ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui testified Monday that he and would-be shoe bomber Richard Reid were supposed to hijack a fifth airplane and fly it into the White House as part of the attack that unfolded Sept. 11, 2001.
"Moussaoui's testimony on his own behalf stunned the courtroom....
"Before Moussaoui took the stand, his lawyers made a last attempt to stop him from testifying, but failed. Defense attorney Gerald Zerkin argued that his client would not be a competent witness because he has contempt for the court, only recognizes Islamic law and therefore 'the affirmation he undertakes would be meaningless.'..."

It is almost more than I can create comments about. I had thought GWB was King of Nitwits about Islam, but I was being too insular (pun intended).
Blair - The Qur’an "is practical and way ahead of its time"
The Prime Minister during his speech "Not a clash between civilisations, but a clash about civilisation" ... included his praise of the Holy Qur’an.
"The most remarkable thing about reading the Koran – in so far as it can be truly translated from the original Arabic - is to understand how progressive it is.
"I speak with great diffidence and humility as a member of another faith. I am not qualified to make any judgements. But as an outsider, the Koran strikes me as a reforming book, trying to return Judaism and Christianity to their origins, rather as reformers attempted with the Christian Church centuries later. It is inclusive. It extols science and knowledge and abhors superstition. It is practical and way ahead of its time in attitudes to marriage, women and governance," he said.
Blair's remarks about the Koran take me back to post 9-11-01 when I bought and read my first Koran. Before I could finish the volume, it was crystal clear that this was a manual for war, that the followers of the Koran were bloodthirsty murders, and that anyone who lived by the tenets of this book had to belong to that unique group of humans: The Most Boring People on Earth.
So, what would happen if a woman wanted to testify wearing niqab or a burka? Hmmm....
Yeah, these insulted Muslims seeking political power really won me over on this one. Will they ever understand that Muslims ARE understood? Perfectly? Read the rest of the article, by the way, it's pretty scary. And SCAIRY. Hat-tip to CAIR's site on this one:
If you think any of this is funny and dare to smile or laugh, well, then, you just might be an infidel...
For years in psychiatry, we regarded the term "thought disorder" as referring to serious, psychotic-level mental illness. One of the big four "A" diagnostic criteria first proposed by Eugen Bleuler for schizophrenia was "association," standing for very disrupted thinking. Delusions were part of the picture, but "thought disorder" covered a lot more territory, including paranoia and bipolar disorders. To some extent, disordered thinking is sine qua non in all psychiatric disorders, since thought really runs all of the human mind, in the foreground or in the background.
Never once did we EVER think of Islam when we talked of "thought disorders." Obviously, we were severely naive and under-educated. The evidence for our inadequacies can be found in the following article (excerpted):
WorldNetDaily: Dry out sex organs of Jews, asks prayer, Monday, March 20, 2006, by Aaron Klein
© 2006 WorldNetDaily.com, JERUSALEM –
Sheikh Abu Muhammed, an imam at the popular Al-Tadwa mosque in Beit Lahia north of Gaza City, went on to ask Muslims at his Friday night sermon to pray for the sexual organs of Jews to "dry out" so they cannot reproduce, a Palestinian in attendance at the mosque services told WorldNetDaily.
"Praise Allah the bird flu has hit the Jews. It came because of their sins against the Palestinians; because they are the most cruel enemy of humanity; because they are themselves the enemy of humanity; because they don't believe in Allah; because they falsify the book of Allah; because they cheated the prophet Muhammed; and because they cheated Allah and even their own prophet, Moses," Sheikh Muhammed was quoted as saying...Like [late Hamas spiritual leader] Sheikh Yassin said, 2025 will be the end of Jews. This [bird flu] is the sign," said Sheikh Muhammed, according to congregants. (Yassin, who was assassinated by Israel in March, 2004, told followers he used Quranic verse to divine Israel would be destroyed by the year 2025.)
In his mosque speech, Sheikh Muhammed reportedly went on to explain Allah decided to "hit the Israelis with birds," since birds are mentioned in the Quran as a tool used to defeat infidels.
He asked for congregants to "pray for Allah to dry out the sexual organs of the Jews with a disease so they won't be able to reproduce anymore."

Statement By Anti-CAIR’s Andrew Whitehead Regarding Dismissal of CAIR Libel SuitThe parties involved in CAIR's lawsuit have settled. And check this out:
As you know, the Council on American-Islamic Relations filed a $1.35 million libel suit against me because I made the following statements:
• “Let there be no doubt that CAIR is a terrorist supporting front organization that is partially funded by terrorists, and that CAIR wishes nothing more than the implementation of Sharia law in America.”
• CAIR is an “organization founded by Hamas supporters which seeks to overthrow Constitutional government in the United States and replace it with an Islamist theocracy using our own Constitution as protection.”
• “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. In addition, CAIR has managed, through the adroit manipulation of the popular media, to present itself as the ‘moderate' face of Islam in the United States. CAIR succeeded to the point that the majority of its members are not aware that CAIR actively supports terrorists and terrorist supporting groups and nations. In addition, CAIR receives direct funding from Islamic terrorists supporting countries.”
• “CAIR is a fundamentalist organization dedicated to the overthrow of the United States Constitution and the installation of an Islamic theocracy in America.”...
"The policies and procedures of Anti-CAIR (ACAIR) have not changed in any way as a result of the CAIR lawsuit settlement. ACAIR, and ACAIR’s founder, Andrew Whitehead, will continue to work to expose and present to interested parties any information regarding CAIR that they feel is of importance."I have previously written about CAIR, here and here.

Britain Aims to Become Europe's Most 'Islam-Friendly' Economy
By Kevin McCandless
March 20, 2006
London (CNSNews.com) - As more and more British banks offer special services to Muslims, the government says its wants to make the United Kingdom the most Islam-friendly economy in Europe. [Part of Blair's new "Giving-Britain-Away-as-a-Tax-Deductible-Donation" program. Or, as Churchill did not say, Making Britain safe for everybody but Britons.]
Treasury officials said they wanted to create a "level playing field" for banks selling financial products that comply with Islamic law (shari'a.) [Muslims will indeed level them out, more like crushing those whom they do not behead.]
In addition to providing for the 1.8 million Muslims who live in Britain, Treasury spokesman Tom Youldon said the government would continue to promote the country as a center of Islamic finance for Muslims based abroad. [What do they think Islamists will do with England when they acquire it?]
"In Islam, there's a saying that in matters of [business] dealings, everything is possible - unless it's prohibited," he said. [Oh, my, that is sooooo funny--except that it isn't.]

'An Attack On Islam'Another news source provides this information:
Updated: 15:18, Sunday March 19, 2006
"An Afghan man is facing the death penalty for becoming a Christian.
"Abdul Rahman was arrested last month after his family went to the police and accused him of converting from Islam.
"He has gone on trial for rejecting Islam - an offence punishable by death under Shariah law.
"During the hearing, the defendant allegedly confessed that he converted from Islam to Christianity 16-years-ago.
"He had been working as a medical aid worker for Afghan refugees in neighbouring Pakistan.
"The judge said: 'We are not against any particular religion in the world.
"'But in Afghanistan, this sort of thing is against the law.
"'It is an attack on Islam. The prosecutor is asking for the death penalty.'"
"Afghanistan's constitution is based on Shariah law, which states that any Muslim who rejects their religion should be sentenced to death ....In two months, the court in Kabul is scheduled to rule on the above matter. Abdul Rahman is believed to be forty-one years old.
"The prosecutor, Abdul Wasi, said the case was the first of its kind in Afghanistan.
"He said that he had offered to drop the charges if Rahman changed his religion back to Islam, but the defendant refused...."
In a letter to Raleigh's ABC-TV affiliate (Hat tip: Michelle Malkin), the car-driving terrorist Mohammed Taheri-azar says the following:
The suspect in this month's attack on the UNC-CH campus has written a letter to ABC11 Eyewitness News. Eyewitness News received the letter Monday, in response to our request for an interview. It was sent from Central Prison in Raleigh and dated Friday, March 10. Addressed to ABC11 Eyewitness News anchor Amber Rupinta, the two-page letter includes Taheri-azar's explanation of what he was trying to accomplish in the attack.I think this pretty much says everything we need to know about the influence of Islam, now doesn't it? As Ranting Profs says - case closed.
"Allah gives permission in the Koran for the followers of Allah to attack those who have raged war against them, with the expectation of eternal paradise in case of martyrdom and/or living one's life in obedience of all of Allah's commandments found throughout the Koran's 114 chapters..."
"The U.S. government is responsible for the deaths of and the torture of countless followers of Allah, my brothers and sisters. My attack on Americans at UNC-CH on March 3rd was in retaliation for similar attacks orchestrated by the U.S. government on my fellow followers of Allah in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, and other Islamic territories. I did not act out of hatred for Americans, but out of love for Allah instead."
We have come to learn of the problems Muslims have with intellectual achievement. We have come to learn that the greatest fear of all that Islam has is that someone, somewhere, at some time, will ask some pesky questions that might possibly result in (gasp!) CHANGE. We have learned that since the Koran is is literal, dictated Word of Allah, it is perfect, and therefore cannot be changed. By Allah, when the Koran says that Muslims have one intestine and the infidel has seven, that's that! Questions? Of course not! After all, as they say in Islam, any knowledge worth knowing is in the Koran, and since that knowledge is from Allah himself, to change it would be a sin.
From Islam in Europe--hat-tip to Esther
Turn on your speakers to hear "Strangers on My Flight" !
The poor fools over at Islamophobia Watch are full of tales of Islamic misery and woe (none warranted) and I have attacked them before, but here is their take on the current British controversy. This site is rather fun to lampoon, I must admit, and I highly recommend visiting (if only for their "definition" of "islamophobia") as well as writing to them. I prefer to send them photos of victims of genocide in Asia Minor myself, but take your pick. Here's their take:
There once was a phony "prophet" named Mo'
Whose lust for little girls made him glow.
He said, Allah gave his lust the OK,
So anyone protesting had no say.
If anyone objected, his wife was collected, and
his head put on a pike, just so.
Back in February, Chip Bok, a political cartoonist for the Akron Beacon Journal, was being attacked on his blog, and also by CAIR, supposedly for making fun of their oh-so precious prophet, when it was really CNN being targeted, for how they blotted out a clear vision of the Mo cartoons on their broadcasts.
Tehran, Iran, Jan. 07 – The government of radical Islamist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad plans to segregate Iran’s pedestrian walkways on gender basis, according to Fatemeh Alia, a deputy in Iran’s Majlis (Parliament) and one of Ahmadinejad’s closest allies.
(MGM Productions, 1991)
"...By mixing cultural, political and religious features of Iranian Society, the story does a disservice to viewers' understanding of Islam...Viewers' emotions are manipulated by...a major plot turn which has Mahmoody almost separated from her daughter Mahtab.The CIE goes on to speak of this:
"While some educators have used this film to shed light on Iranian and Muslim life, it is an unacceptable teaching tool, which only serves to alienate young Muslim students in the classroom even as it maligns one of the world's major faith traditions...."
"[T]he necessity of allowing a religion or culture to speak for itself with an authentic voice, and the importance of presenting information in an open-ended manner..."Never mind that the story presented in the film Not Without My Daughter is a true one! Never mind that Islam indeed mixes culture, politics, and religion!
U.S. attorney’s office charge organized crime along East Coast waterfront
NEW YORK - Justice Department lawyers warned eight months ago that a nefarious element had infiltrated important East Coast ports, but they weren’t talking about terrorists or Arab shipping companies.
They were talking about the mafia.
I got the information from MSNBC.
I just figured I'd repost this one. It may come in handy. If anyone has a more direct Homeland Security tips contact, feel free to post it! This never hurts to have on hand, especially with all of the threats and interesting materials on the web these days. ;)
Now I believe it is time to show solidarity with the people in the West hiding from Islamist death threats.
I am hoping that fellow blogger anum mahktar who is new to our own comments section can enlighten us more on what the ultimate insult to muslims is. I frankly found his post "Mushroom Cloud for America" to be a tad bit insulting, but perhaps he will stop back by our site and fill us in. Anum? Any comments? I just fail to see how anyone can consider their religion peaceful yet advocate nuking America in the name of the same religion. Explain this to us Mr. Mahktar, please?
