Faceless shadows that walk amongst us, or The Girls of the Taliban

Women’s rights groups can see that yet again women’s rights in Afghanistan are under threat. Previously women had been banned from going to the doctor and getting an education. Now they can visit a doctor and get educated BUT unregistered religious ‘ schools are springing up everywhere where the only ‘ education ‘ provided is religious brainwashing Islamic. No science, no maths, no anything bar memorising the Koran.

Islamic religious school in Afghanistan

Inside the school for girls the only thing they study is the Koran. They rock as they recite the words, the obvious cult like brainwashing methods clearly apparent. Recite, rock, repeat, over and over and over. No critical thought allowed, just the ideology imprinted over and over again. No questioning, no freedom of speech, no actual education just the words repeated over and over again.

Face of the day

cropped-elisabeth-HEADER

Todays face of the day, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff was found guilty of hate speech. Her crime? Calling Mohammed a pedophile and telling the truth about Islam. In Austria calls for killing Jews are legal but calling Mohammed a Pedophile is illegal.

The last time I checked, a man who sexually touches a 6 year old girl is a pedophile and one who has sex with a 9 year old girl is a pedophile. You can argue that back in the dark ages that kind of child sex was socially acceptable. I would argue that in modern, civilised times it is not. So therefore I confidently and loudly say that the founder of Islam by today’s civilised standards was a kiddy fiddler, a pedophile, a pedo, a pervert, a rapist, a creeper, a pedobear and  a child molester. The forced child marriage that is still sanctioned and happening within Islam is an abomination and is morally and ethically repulsive.

There I have said it. Charge me with hate speech for stating the obvious. What on earth is our world coming to when a woman cannot tell the truth without being arrested and dragged through the legal system while those who call for Jews to be killed not only are left alone, their words are justified by the judiciary.

It’s not anti-Semitism. It’s anti-Zionism. You can tell because it involves Hitler and killing Jews.

Facebook postings from a Turkish man showing Adolf Hitler, with a statement praising the death of Jews, are a legitimate expression of criticizing the Jewish state, the spokesman for the prosecutor office in the city of Linz, Philip Christl, said on Tuesday.

“I could have annihilated all the Jews in the world, but I left some of them alive so you will know why I was killing them…,” Ibrahim B. wrote on his Facebook page in December.

Islamic dictionary for Westerners or what do they mean when they say…

R32-DicIslamicTerms

In an earlier post I wrote about how the word ‘innocents ‘ means something very different to Islam than it does to us. When Muslims say that they are against the killing of innocents after a terrorist attack we think they mean the people who were massacred in the attack. In fact just by being non-Muslim ( Infidels ) we are not considered innocents by Islam. In other words they are saying that they are against the killing of Muslims. This is a huge deception that is being played on the West repeatedly. Their choice of words when condemning terrorism is very telling. You will see the word innocents used again and again in statements online on television and in the dead tree media. ‘Innocents,’ however is not the only word that we in the West are deceived by.

Remember my challenge to Canterbury Museum?

The other day I challenged Canterbury Museum to hold an exhibition of historical and modern art and cartoons featuring Muhammad. They had sought and gained permission to show an obscene image of a Nun masturbating with a highly offensive statement about Jesus on a T-Shirt. I suggested that they would not be able to gain permission to hold the exhibit at all, let alone get permission for each individual image.

In Denmark on Saturday  a  cafe was used as a venue for an event titled ,“Art, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression ” organized by Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who has faced several threats after caricaturing the Prophet Muhammad. What happened next is the reason why Canterbury Museum will happily insult Christianity and every other religion under the sun bar one. The religion of peace.

Three people were wounded in a shooting near a Copenhagen synagogue tonight, just hours after a gunman killed one person and wounded three cops at a free-speech event at a café in the Danish city, police said.

Police said it was too early to say whether the two shootings were related.

The shooting at the synagogue tonight comes as police were looking for at least one gunman day in the attack earlier in the at the Krudttoenden cafe, which Danish officials described as terrorism and an assassination attempt.

“We feel certain now that it is a politically motivated attack, and thereby it is a terrorist attack,” Danish Prime Minister Helle Thornin-Schmidt said of the cafe shooting…

The shooting happened about 4 p.m. at an event titled “Art, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression,” organized by Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who has faced several threats after caricaturing the Prophet Muhammad.

“I’m not sure how many shots but I’d say about 20 or 30 shots,” sais Dennis Myhoff-Brink, who witnessed the attack . “And, people panicked of course and ran to the doors. Other people were hiding behind tables they had turned over.”

Vilks, 68, who was not injured in the shooting, said he believed he was the intended target.   Read more »

Pamela Geller

Pamela Geller

Pamela Geller is planning a “Draw the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas in the same location as a Muslim group held a “Stand with the Prophet” conference in January. The First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest will be hosted by the Curtis Caldwell Center, which is owned and operated by the Garland Independent School District.

Geller’s event comes on the wake of the Islamic terrorist attack on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo in January. Following the attack, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) scheduled the “Stand with the Prophet” conference at the public school district’s conference center. Geller, the President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), scheduled a protest outside the event that was attended by approximately 2,000 people.

During the Free Speech Rally in Garland, Geller spoke with Breitbart Texas about her reaction to the large and loud crowd of protesters. She said that Muslims are trying to impose restrictions on free speech like they are doing in Paris. “Thousands of Americans said ‘no way!’”

“The media can smear us and the President can stand with them,” Geller said. “We the people are not having it. If there is any proof of that, it’s today. We dwarfed them.”

“If the Western media ran the Danish cartoons back when this Islamic supremacist movement first started gaining steam, the editorial staff of Charlie Hebdo would be alive today,” Geller stated in response to an inquiry from Breitbart Texas. “That said, the European press ran the Hebdo cartoons in the wake of that jihad slaughter. But the American press would not. The beacon of freedom, the shining light on a hill, is running scared. Well, that’s not who we are. The elites do not represent the people.”

“Enough is enough,” she explained. “They’re just cartoons. We’re holding this exhibit and cartoon contest to show how insane the world has become — with people in the free world tiptoeing in terror around supremacist thugs who actually commit murder over cartoons. If we can’t stand up for the freedom of speech, we will lose it — and with it, free society.”

Outrage? Not so much, it’s only Christians being insulted

jesus-cof

Apparently there is some outrage about a t-shirt exhibition which has a t-shirt from some band called Cradle of Filth that is offensive.

The display of a t-shirt that features a semi-naked nun and makes an obscene reference to Jesus has sparked a threat to call police and pleas for a boycott.

For an exhibition starting tomorrow, Canterbury Museum planned to display items including English metal band Cradle of Filth’s “Vestal Masturbation” t-shirts.

The clothing, the subject of several controversies and prosecutions worldwide over the years, featured an obscene slogan about Jesus on one side and a picture of a semi-naked nun masturbating on the other.

Conservative lobby group Family First called the exhibit “horrific” and “offensive” and was appealing to authorities, the public and the museum to take action.

Bob McCoskrie, the group’s national director, said he was complaining to police because he needed to “warn families” and dismissed suggestions his complaint would simply give the exhibit more attention.

“It’s a free exhibition in a public museum.”

Mr McCoskrie understood the museum received an “exemption” to display the t-shirts, even though he said both the Internal Affairs Department and Invercargill District Court had in the past deemed the shirt offensive.

“We don’t think it’s art.”

An ex Muslim explains why Islam is worse that Nazism

The below article was written by Serkan Engin from Turkey. He is a former Muslim who is now an atheist. His written english is not the best but his article is well worth reading because it is from the perspective of someone who used to be Muslim and who truly understands what Islam is really all about. I found it on jihadwatch.org with an intro by Robert Spencer.

Note from Robert Spencer: When Serkan Engin sent me this piece and asked me to publish it, I asked him if this could endanger him in Turkey. He responded, “I am ready to die.” I certainly hope that he encounters no difficulty as a result of making these public statements; what happens to him now will be a test of the health of the freedom of speech and Kemalist secularism in rapidly re-Islamizing Turkey. It is certainly not possible to say such things in the U.S. today without charges of “racism” and “bigotry,” without any discussion of whether there are Islamic texts and teachings that justify violence and hatred: the question cannot even be asked.

It should also be noted that I do not agree with Serkan Engin’s call for Islam to be outlawed. In the U.S., at least (to say nothing of Turkey or elsewhere), we do not outlaw ideas, and do not employ Thought Police. The criminalizing of thought is a hallmark of the totalitarian state. Even at the height of the Cold War, Communism was not outlawed. Once a people grants to the government the power to declare certain ideas illegal, that power can be turned against good ideas, to the detriment of the people. What needs to be done in response to jihad violence and Islamic supremacism today is an aggressive prosecution of any and all actions dedicated to subverting the republic; that is, however, not being done.

In any case, I may not agree with everything Serkan Engin says, but I will defend to the death his right to speak his mind. That is the fundamental principle of the freedom of speech, and the indispensable foundation of any free society. It is rapidly being lost.

Why Islam is Worse Than Nazism
by Serkan Engin

I am an atheist author and poet, who had lived as a Sunni Muslim for 23 years from birth, and I am still living in a Muslim country, Turkey. Also, my parents and all of my relatives are still Muslim. So, my critics about Islam can be easily consider this an inside view.

I know that the title of this essay seems assertive, but I will explain the rightness of this title step-by-step in this essay.

First of all, you have to learn about Islam that if you are an “outsider”, a non-Muslim, for example, a Christian, an atheist, a Buddhist, a Jew or whatever else, all Muslims have the “right” of killing and raping you, grabbing all your properties, your country, land, money and anything else. They take this “right” from the book of their belief, the Quran. In other words, they take this “right” from their belief’s core, the theology of Islam.

Here are some examples of this in verses from Quran.

This verse of Quran is about “all non-Muslims”, all “heretics”! — Christians, Buddhists, atheists, Jews, etc. — describing them “who wage war against Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad)”

Surat Al-Ma’idah (5.33)

http://quran.com/5/33

“Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.”

And this verse of the Quran is about the order to kill the humans who left Islam, the apostates:

Surat An-Nisa’ (4.89)

http://quran.com/4/89

“They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.”

Look at the current situation in Syria. How can Islamist terrorists slaughter Alawite people or rape Christian women so easily? Because they take this “right” from their belief and they believe that they will go to the heaven because of these vandalistic actions against “outsiders”, who are out of Islam, who don’t believe the same religious tenets — in other words, those who are the “heretics” according to their belief. Some Muslims say, “But they are not the real Muslims.” That is a big lie; that is the exact form of real Islam, because these vandalistic actions are in accord with the orders of Quran.

You have heard many times that “Islam is a tolerant religion”. That is the biggest lie that you can hear all over the World, and this lie is used as a mask to hide the terrible face of Islam. There is NO difference between Islam and Islamism. This is the main error that the modern world make about Islam. There are not different forms as Islam and Islamism, they are the same thing, and they have the same content. This separation is just only an illusion, and it is used by Muslims to hide the brutal, hateful, oppressive,murderous, genocidal face of Islam.

Islamic theology is based on the verses of the Quran and Hadith. Hadiths are the words and actions of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, and all Muslims must follow these words and actions in addition to the orders of Quran. For example, you have to defecate as Muhammad did, and you have to clean yourself as he did, or you can rape and enslave a “heretic” woman in a war as a sex slave as Muhammad did, or you can torture your enemy in a war to learn the place of his hidden money, as Muhammad did.

You “must” cut the hand of a thief as Muhammad did, not give him any prison sentence as do the modern laws.

You must stone a woman to death as Muhammad did, because she had sex outside of the rules of Islam (but you must only whip her partner a hundred times). If you are a Muslim, you can never set them free while considering that their sexual actions are about their own personal relations and freedom, in accord with modern laws. You must definitely apply the punishments of Muhammad such as stoning the woman to the death and whipping her partner a hundred times if you want to be a good Muslim.

You must kill the man who left the belief of Islam, as Muhammad did. You can’t say “This is his own choice and he has the freedom of thought and belief”, because it is an order of the Quran that you “must” kill the persons who were Muslim before and then left the Islamic religion.

You must kill all homosexuals according to the orders of Islam. No Muslims can say according to Islam that their sexual orientation is their own natural right, in accord with the human rights norms of our age.

You have the “right” to marry a little girl at 9 years old, as Muhammad did. In other words, you can rape a little child legally in Islam and make her a sex slave, and also a domestic slave till the end of her life.

You can lie alongside of your dead wife for 6 hours, as Muhammad did. In other words, you can rape the dead body of your wife for 6 hours after her death.

Here is Islam…Here is the “tolerant religion”…Here is the right way to the heaven…Here are the orders of Allah…Here are the actions of Muhammad…

You can easily see how civilized the Muslim countries of the world are because of Islam, such as Afghanistan, Nigeria, Turkey, Iran, Sudan and the others. You can see how much they have contributed to the history of philosophy, the history of art, and the history of science of the whole world. You can see how respectful they are to human rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, the freedom of expression and thought, the freedom of the press, the freedom of belief, etc.

The first genocide wave of 20th century, the Armenian Genocide, the Assyrian Genocide and the Pontic Greek Genocide, was perpetrated by Turkish and Kurdish people of the Ottoman Empire and the new Turkish Republic, getting motivation from the “rights” that they had because of Islam: the “rights” of killing and raping the non-Muslims, enslaving their women and little girls as sex slaves and also domestic slaves, and grabbing their money, houses and lands. However, “The Committee of Union and Progress” (CUP) (Turkish: İttihat ve Terakki Cemiyeti) was based on Turkish nationalism; they used Turkish and Kurdish people easily for these genocides because of the Islamic religion’s content about non-Muslims. All the Turkish and Kurdish Muslims believed that they would go to the heaven if they killed more non-Muslims, as do today’s Islamist terrorists.

The owners of the second genocide wave of 20th century were Nazis, as you know. They took the genocides of the Turks as a sample. It is know that Adolf Hitler said to his military commanders, “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?, while they were talking about the reaction of the world about the genocides that they were planning to perpetrate.

Nazism was considered a legal and respectable ideology at the beginning of the 1930s, and then the world saw how dangerous Nazism was. Millions of people died because of Nazism, and today it is illegal to support Nazism in any civilized country. You can never make propaganda about Nazism legally. Today, Nazism is not considered as a genuine thought alternative, and it is not included in the freedom of thought and expression.

As I have detailed above, Islam is against the human rights norms of our age, and it has more dangerous content than Nazism. Islam is not a belief alternative, it is just a crime against humanity, and any crime shouldn’t have freedom in our modern world. So, Islam must be declared illegal all over the world, as is Nazism, because of its vandal content and commands that are against human rights. All actions about Islam must be forbidden and the propagandists of Islam must be judged because of instigating to the crimes of murder, rape, grab and crimes against humanity. Otherwise, the world will meet with a big tragedy when the Islamists will get more power, as the world suffered because of Nazism.

A socialist Laz poet from Turkey, Serkan Engin was born in 1975 in Izmit, Turkey.

While I agree with Robert Spencer that we should not ban Islam  as that is indeed the mark of a totalitarian state we should actively criticise and mock it. We should enforce the laws of our society on its members every time their ideology breaks them. We should have zero tolerance for their beliefs that take away others rights. There should be zero sympathy for beliefs and laws that are the opposite of our rights and laws. Islam must be given no place in our education system. They cannot be allowed to run Islamic schools as unlike other religious schools they will be teaching separatism ( Infidels ) and hate ( Infidels ) pedophilia ( Muhammad ) and subjugation ( women forced to wear head scarfs etc ) As these run counter to the rights and democracy of our country they cannot be allowed to brain wash their children. We would not allow the KKK to have their own schools so why should we allow them to teach their children that we are third class citizens that need to be converted or killed?

They have the right to brain wash them at home of course but only an extremely foolish country would actually use tax payers money to help train its own citizens to over throw both its democracy and rights.

 

What is the difference between the Qur’an and other Religious books?

If you do not have the time to read the Qur’an for yourself I highly recommend watching this informative video where the contents are explained to you in a matter of fact way without emotion.
The differences between it and other religious books is clearly explained. From what I can tell the creator of the video is not a religious person of any faith, which actually is good as it makes his analysis less likely to be influenced by his own beliefs and therefore more reliable don’t you think?

If you are gay,
If you have sex outside of marriage
If you are are a drinker or gambler or a thief
If you have been unfaithful to your partner
If you have ever been a critic of Muhammad,the Qur’an or Shari’a law
If you do not follow Islam
If you want a democratic government… You NEED to know what this book says!

Taking points to help you when discussing Islam with others

I am skilled in the art of persuasion. I use analogies a lot as they can be used effectively to illustrate a point and are easy to understand. An analogy is a comparison in which an idea or a thing is compared to another thing that is quite different from it. It aims at explaining that idea or thing by comparing it to something that is familiar.

Here are two talking points that can be explained using an analogy.

  • To help keep the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists safe, all Main stream media  should immediately re-publish the cartoons.

Analogy: The school bully is big and strong and he likes to beat up kids who wear glasses. One day the entire student body turns up wearing glasses. The bully no longer has a clear target. He also now knows that all the students are standing in solidarity with the kids who genuinely need glasses. This is intimidating as he realises that all the students are against his actions. He can no longer count on the others turning a blind eye to his actions.d0f811fbd96b4a3da862d79522cec602

2015 Islamophobia Awards and the nominees are……

Believe it or not there is such a thing as the Islamophobia Awards.

Not only do they nominate individuals for the award, they also have nominated books and films.

They have even helpfully included a quote to go with each of the nominees. Frankly I am struggling to find any lies. All I see are facts and opinions. I don’t see any hate but what I do see in the creation of these awards is Islam attacking Freedom of Speech yet again. Admittedly this is a ‘ moderate ‘ way to try to silence the dissenting voices, but it is an attempt to silence us nevertheless.
