Charlie Hebdo issue ramping up to be another cartoon war. Better sooner than later. Links 1 for Jan 17 – 2015

1. Newham Holocaust memorial day posters defaced

 

Posters advertising a Holocaust memorial event in east London have been daubed with graffiti including the words “liars” and “killer”.

The vandalism, which took place in Newham, is being listed as a “hate crime”, Scotland Yard said.

Newham mayor Sir Robin Wales described what had happened as “despicable”.

The graffiti, which is being treated as racially aggravated criminal damage, was found in four locations and has been removed, the council said.

(Sharia does not have presumption of innocence or due process. So I would say at worst it was 50/50 she is innocent. Also there is an auto start video at this site so be prepared)

3. Jindal’s Brilliant Take on Radical Islam

Early in the speech Jindal says he’s not going to be politically correct. And he uses the term “radical Islamists” without hesitation, placing much of the blame for the Paris murders and all radical Islamist terrorism on a refusal of Muslim leaders to denounce these acts.

Jindal says, “Muslim leaders must make clear that anyone who commits acts of terror in the name of Islam is in fact not practicing Islam at all. If they refuse to say this, then they are condoning these acts of barbarism. There is no middle ground.”

Then he adds, specifically, “Muslim leaders need to condemn anyone who commits these acts of violence and clearly state that these people are evil and are enemies of Islam. It’s not enough to simply condemn violence, they must stand up and loudly proclaim that these people are not martyrs who will receive a reward in the afterlife, and rather they are murderers who are going to hell. If they refuse to do that, then they’re part of the problem. There is no middle ground here.”

I want to know who in the Muslim community in the United States has said this. Which leaders? I don’t normally cover this beat, so I may well have missed it. Hence, I ask readers to tell me if so-called American Muslim leaders have said what Gov. Jindal is saying.

And by the way, what Bobby Jindal is saying is very similar to what Egyptian president el-Sissi said earlier in the year to a group of Muslim imams.

5. Protests in Syria Over Charlie Hebdo | RAW VIDEO

I have to say, I am deeply disappointed in what the pope said on his papal plane about freedom of speech and punching people if he doesn’t like what they say and making the most sophomoric fallacies of false comparison. So I made this short video for him hoping to remind him of something.

Thank you Richard, M., Yucki and all. Much more to come. At least Bill Maher is catching up to Pat Condell. That is some good news at least.

    • But of course there are. We can give name, rank, and serial number, but everything collapses when even a lame-duck MB-POTUS signs executive orders.

      Eygpt’s gotten disgusted and turned to Russia for purchases instead of the USA.

    • “Let’s be honest here. Islam has a problem.”

      No, Islam is a problem, and that is the problem with Jindal’s approach. Muslim leaders condemning acts of terror by ‘radical Islamists’ and saying they are enemies of Islam will not change the nature of Islam. The problem is Islam itself. Perhaps Jindal has his head around that. I hope so.

      El-Sisi is much clearer about this, although the article does not quote what was most interesting about his presentation at al-Azhar, his call to de-sanctify the ideology that historically has been at the core of Islam.

      The article avoids the heart of el-Sisi’s argument in order to make it sound as though his ideas are more than superficially similar to French Marxist-who-says-he-isn’t-a-Marxist BHL’s call for Muslim rejection of ‘a radical Islam immersed in the sociology of poverty and frustration,’ ‘a corrupt an abject form of theocratic passion’ – as though an uncorrupted, purified Islam, freed from poverty and frustration, would disavow Islamic supremacism. Jindal’s take on Islam might be optimistic ; BHL’s is rubbish.

      • Pope.

        Say anything against his mother and you can expect a punch,
        Of his friend Mohammad, death is is not hunch;
        Speak of any child abuse there will come a crunch
        For no one’s allowed to take away another man’s free lunch.

  1. RT – Over 20,000 demonstrators came to rally against religious intolerance in the North Caucasus town of Magas, Saturday protesting the Islamophobic backlash across Europe that has followed the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris.

    • They’re only pretending to be offended, folks. It’s important that you remember that. What they are really doing is playing out their parts in a psychological warfare gambit dedicated to the imposition of Islamic blasphemy laws on a global basis. That is what this is really all about. That is what is really going on. Nobody really cares about a dumb drawing – right? Just take a look at the anti-Semitic cartoons that appear daily in papers across the Muslim world and you’ll find oodles of stuff that makes Charlie Hebdo look like child’s play. And you ought to hear the things that Sunni and Shia say about each other. Don’t be fooled. It’s a trick!!!

    I think somebody needs to tell this pope to go get a cardboard box and start putting his stuff in it, ’cause he’s fired! Honestly… Not only is the Pope a radical left-wing, anti-Semitic Muslim appeaser who has no idea what’s going on in the world, he’s a lousy Catholic who goes around talking tough about punching people in the nose. Jesus Christ!
    Where did that goomba put the real pope?

    Preview: In London Speech, Governor Jindal to Expose Truth About Radical Islam
    BATON ROUGE — Governor Jindal will address the Henry Jackson Society on Monday in London, where he will expose the truth about radical Islam and call for immigrant assimilation to strengthen countries and protect freedom. Below are Governor Jindal’s remarks as prepared for delivery.

  4. I notice that this blogger shares with Governor Jindal the arcane English use of “Jewish persons” to indicate people who are Jews.

    Permit me (an attempt at) some humor as a way to illustrate why the use is arcane.

    A Bhuddist person, a Unitarian person, and a Moslem person walk into a bar. Before anyone orders a drink, the Christian-person bartender-person asks, “Who’s paying?” “What do you care?” ask the three persons. “Well,” says the Christian-person bartender-person. “In the end, the Jew always ends up paying, so I just wanted to give your Jewish person some time to show up so he knows what you’re getting him into.”

    • “Jew” is a nasty epithet, a playground term of abuse. Commonly used among those who know no Jews.
      So “Jewish person” is an attempt to soften the Jew, affirm his identity within the human race.

      • Exactly. My taxonomy reads as person first and kind of person second.

        It should also be noted that antisemites tend to hate Jews no matter what they think, do, contribute, believe or religion they may actually practice. It is a genuine form of racism even if Jewish people are not a definable race. People who are hated for being classed as Jewish do not get a pass because they do not practice Judaism as a Nazi would if they abandoned Nazism or a Muslim will if he apostatizes or a communist would if he opened a small stationary shop.
