Islam

Muslims? More of these, less of the others (Comment of the Day)

Peter Jenkins

I don’t know if any of you saw the Sunday Herald, (my work gets the Herald as it minimises food spills on the tables in the tearoom I suspect) and in it was an advert by a Muslim group called Muslims for Peace protesting against ISIS and Extremism in general. (It was headed Eradicating Extremism in big capital letters)

So there ARE “Good Muslims”, and I thought their message deserved wider circulation than the sad little rag it was in. They seem to be in favour of equal rights for women, no compulsion of religion, and probably also not throwing gays off parking buildings or stoning them.

The ad included four links; http://www.alislam.org, http://www.khalifaofislam.com, http://www.MuslimsForPeace.organd http://www.ahmadiyya.org.nz

They are Ahmadiyya Muslims, a subset of Islam. Unfortunately they are rejected as kafirs or heretics by mainstream Islam (too peaceful perhaps) and are actively persecuted in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Bangladesh and other majority Muslim countries, actually being defined officially as not Muslim in some

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahmadiyya

I wish them all the best and hope they spread their anti terrorism message further. I’d be happy to see them stay and I’d say they will assimilate far better than most

Bizarre rant from Armstrong on Iraq deployment

I’m getting a bit sick of John Armstrong and his prognostications on defence matters.

New Zealand’s 100-plus contingent of military training specialists plus support personnel have barely arrived in Iraq. Yet the folly of this military (mis)adventure is already rapidly becoming apparent.

Last week’s fall of the city of Ramadi after Iraqi forces capitulated to Islamic State fighters, despite heavily outnumbering their enemy, has shifted the front-line in this sectarian struggle worryingly close to Taji, the huge military camp within which the New Zealanders are based alongside Australian counterparts.

Unless the Isis (Islamic State) advance is halted, the New Zealand Government is going to be faced with a major dilemma at some point in the not-too-distant future: pull the training team out of Iraq and lose face, plus earn black marks from the Americans and the Australians; or stick it out for the sake of good form and loyalty to allies and gamble on things not deteriorating with the risks this brings, including the possibility of casualties.

National’s predicament was neatly summed up by New Zealand First MP and former Army officer Ron Mark in an entry on his Facebook page last Friday.

“Latest update from the US on Isis. Taji is only 91km from Ramadi. The same distance I drive from Carterton to Wellington to attend Parliament. Isis could be in artillery range of our troops in 30 minutes.” He added a question for Mr Key: “What’s our plan, John?”

I’m not sure listening to a former truck mechanic on military matters is wise.  Read more »

Religion of Peace threatens to kill 17 year old over Charlie Hebdo tribute

707192-une-charlie-png

Teachers and students at a French school have rallied in support of a pupil who has received death threats for publishing a tribute to satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

The student, 17-year-old Louis, published a special edition of the school paper in January after Islamists went on a killing spree on the streets of Paris that left 17 people dead.

Two of them stormed the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo killing 12 people, including journalists and police officers, and sparking a global outpouring in support of free speech.

The school paper edition – titled “Je Suis Charlie” (“I am Charlie”) after the slogan that went viral following the attack – included poems, opinion pieces and drawings.

It did not include any of the caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed published by Charlie Hebdo that had angered the Islamists.

“It was a tribute to the 17 victims without discrimination — for Jews, journalists, police officers,” Louis, whose surname was not given, said.

Police have opened an inquiry into the death threats against the student, including seven letters in total, two of which contained bullets.

The last one at the beginning of May “seemed like an ultimatum”, Louis said. Read more »

Feel like a bit of state sanctioned head hacking? Boy have I got the job for you

The Saudi government is a bit short of executioners and is advertising for the positions available.

I wonder if you need to demonstrate superior hand/eye coordination?

Saudi Arabia is seeking to fill eight positions for the job of executioner.  Do you have what it takes?

The New York Timeswrites, “The eight positions, as advertised on the website of the Ministry of Civil Service, require no specific skills or educational background for ‘carrying out the death sentence according to Islamic Shariah after it is ordered by a legal ruling.’ But given the grisly nature of the job, a scarcity of qualified swordsmen in some regions of the country and a rise in the frequency of executions, candidates might face a heavy workload.”

The justice system in Saudi Arabia punishes certain offenses with death, usually a public beheading. Some crimes carry a lesser penalty. “The main role is ‘executing a judgment of death’ – but workers must also perform amputations on those convicted of lesser offences, according to the advert posted on the civil service jobs portal,” describes the Daily Mail.   Read more »

The religion of peace in action in Auckland

I wonder if the so-far silent LGBT community over Islamic atrocities against homosexuals will now find their voice to speak out, after the same attitudes have been imported to Auckland.

Or will it be business as usual from the liberals…tolerant of Islam but howls of outrage about anyone else?

A Muslim man repeatedly beat his teenage daughter with an umbrella when he thought she may be gay, and had a photo of a man having his throat cut hung up in the lounge.

The man and his wife – who both have name suppression to protect their children – today pleaded guilty to a raft of child abuse offences when they appeared at Auckland District Court this morning.

He admitted 16 counts of abuse, including hitting and slapping his six children, and striking a child with a horse whip, while his wife pleaded guilty to two counts of assault on a child.

One of his victims was aged just 5 at the time, and another an infant aged 1.

Details of the abuse meted out on the children — all aged under 15 at the time — have been revealed in a summary of facts document, released by Judge Charles Blackie following the court appearance today.

The man, 45, has six children. The woman, 25, is mother to three of them, the eldest of whom is now aged 14. They all lived together in their home in Auckland.  Read more »

Are grumpy old men the best way to fight Islam?

There is a meme doing the rounds purporting to be some bloke complaining about not being able to join the army at age 62. It is quite funny

I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I’m too old to track down terrorists.
You can’t be older than 42 to join the military. They’ve got the whole thing ass-backwards.

Instead of sending 18-year olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn’t be able to join a military unit until you’re at least 35.
For starters, researchers say 18year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds.

Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

Young guys haven’t lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. ‘My back hurts! I can’t sleep, I’m tired and hungry.’

We are impatient and maybe letting us kill some a**hole that desperately deserves it will
make us feel better and shut us up for awhile..

An 18-year-old doesn’t even like to get up before 10am.
Old guys always get up early to pee, so what the hell?

Besides, like I said, I’m tired and can’t sleep and since I’m already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical son-of-a-*****.

Face of the day

Jean-Camara2

Jean Camara Screenshot -pamelageller.com

Today’s face of the day Jean Camara refused to do part of the job that he had been employed to do because of his religion, despite being well aware when he applied for the job what the job entailed. Costco the company he worked for were very understanding and instead of getting rid of him moved him into another part of their business where he wouldn’t have to choose between his religion and his duties. After he was moved, Camara asked to be reassigned to another department but was turned down. Sixteen days later he was fired for insubordination.

How did Jean reward them for bending over backwards to accommodate his ideology? He sued them!

Jean Camara wants them to change their business model so that checkout lines are segregated, one for Muslims and one for the rest of the riff raff ( we Kaffirs ). I also suspect that part of the reason for his extreme reaction is that he didn’t get what he really wanted from his original protest, which was to be transferred to the electronics department.

Face of the day

David facing Goliath

David facing Goliath

Today’s face of the day is David from the bible story of David and Goliath.

The phrase “David and Goliath” has taken on a more secular meaning, denoting an underdog situation, a contest where a smaller, weaker opponent faces a much bigger, stronger adversary.[3]

-Wiki

It has occurred to me that I always take the side of the person or organisation or country that I see as the David in any situation. I see Israel as David, facing what seems to be impossible odds. I see Whaleoil as David, I see the Reclaim Australia movement as David,I see all the people living their lives knowing that they are on Islamic terrorist hit lists because they have criticised Islam, as David.

I am a sucker for the underdog because I admire their strength and tenacity. I used to have a small terrier as a child. One day she ran out of our property to protect us from a large doberman that had started to come up our driveway. She went straight under him and with her muzzle just inches from his balls she started to growl. I will never forget the reaction of the Doberman. He froze and then when her growling became more menacing he began to shake.

Perhaps that incident shaped me. What I do know is that it is not the size of the dog that matters, it is the size of the fight in the dog.

Today’s face of the day knew that. He only had a stone and a sling and Goliath laughed at him. No doubt he was still laughing when he copped a stone right between the eyes and was defeated.

Who is your David and who is your Goliath?

Andrew Little playing fast and loose with our safety

I think John Key needs to conduct remedial SIS briefings for Andrew Little.

He also needs to look a bit further that the NZ Herald for his information sources, and in particular read Australian news outlets where a Mother’s Day massacre by Islamic terrorists has just been thwarted.

Right now he is falling into the “Clark Trap”, thinking and believing that we living in an “incredibly benign strategic environment”.

New Zealand doesn’t need to be worried about terror threats, despite a number of foiled plots across the Tasman recently.

Labour leader Andrew Little says our authorities are just as competent as their Australian counterparts, and argues we don’t face the same challenges.

“Some of those communities come out to Australia and bring those tensions with them. We don’t have the same problems here. Our security threat is pretty low so I don’t think we have to be too concerned about it.”

He’s attributing that to New Zealand’s different makeup of migrant communities.

“The Australian population is more diverse and has a different makeup to New Zealand in terms of other ethnicities, in particular the Middle East and Muslim countries and other parts of the world.”    Read more »

Mad mullah says Pamela Geller should be executed

Andrew Bolt blogs:

Prominent British Islamist preacher Anjem Choudary says it on live TV and to the face of the woman he wants killed:

We’re talking about people who deliberately had a competition to insult the messenger Mohammad… If you saw the cartoons that Charlie Hebdo drew you would understand the anger. And now this woman was to draw cartoons or have people draw cartoons to insult the prophet knowing full well that this carries the death penalty in Islam… She should be put before Shariah court and tried and of course she would face capital punishment.   Read more »
