Double standards, islamic primacy and growing geopolitical tensions: Links 3 on Jan. 24 – 2015

1. London street march Muslim men given three-year Asbo

(Now this would make an unusually disturbing episode of the British TV show, ‘Misfits’)

The men were convicted of public order offences after events in central London that promoted extreme versions of Islam, one of which culminated in members of the public being attacked, police said.

A group of Muslim men have been given three-year anti-social behaviour orders (Asbo) for threatening violence […] Horner is already subject to a five-year Asbo for spreading extremist religious views during vigilante patrols in east London that called for a Shari(a) State in the UK.

(Wow! And you go to jail for months or longer for laying a piece of bacon on a mosque doorknob!)

2. The Germans in the PEGIDA marches in Dresden often chant: “Lying Press”. Wanna know why? Read this. It isn’t just lies or even a smear job. Its a story that should be about the new leader of a movement that has tens of thousands of people marching in freezing cold streets in Germany every week and not once does it ask why. Instead, the focus is on a Youtube video of some woman mocking the new leader. Basically it is another attempt at destroying a good woman like SNL did to Sarah Palin by thrusting forth a mocking mannequin like Tina Fey. Let us Hope Tina never has a good night’s sleep again for her role in what has happened to America since.

3. I wonder if any country heavily influenced by islamic thought might have a law forbidding talking to Israelis in a casual way for its citizens?

6.Former Miss Turkey, 26, facing trial after being arrested for posting satirical poem that criticised the country’s president 

A former Miss Turkey is facing trial for posting a satirical poem on social media that criticised her country’s president.

The arrest of Merve Buyuksarac, 26, follows a crackdown in the country on critical media in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris.

Armed Turkish police last week stopped delivery lorries leaving a newspaper’s offices to make sure that they had not included section of the French satirical magazine that might be offensive to Muslims.

Although officially Turkey is secular, 99.8 per cent of the population are registered as Muslim and there has been heated debate over freedom of expression in the wake of the Paris massacres.

    Iran’s Supreme Leader pens open letter to the young people of the West (CNN, Jan 22, 2015)
    http://edition.cnn.com/2015/01/22/middleeast/iran-ayatollah-letter/

    “Iran’s Supreme Leader has written a letter in English asking Western youths not to judge Islam based on the Charlie Hebdo terror attacks, in a message published on the cleric’s website and Twitter account. In the post, titled “To the Youth in Europe and North America,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei calls on young people to seek out their own understanding of Islam, and he criticizes the media’s portrayal of Muslims following the massacre of 16 people at the French satirical magazine and at a kosher supermarket in Paris this month.

    “The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them,” Khamenei’s letter reads. “I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts.”

    The Paris attacks, which have provoked a wave of anti-Islam protests in the West, were retribution for Charlie Hebdo’s lampooning of Islam over the years. The magazine’s first issue after the attack, which features a caricature of the Prophet Mohammed on its cover, has sparked demonstrations across the Muslim world.

    But the leader of Iran, where chants of “Death to America” have been a familiar refrain at Friday prayers and parliamentary sessions since the Islamic republic’s founding in 1979, strikes a more conciliatory tone in his message to young people in the West.

    “I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam,” his letter reads. “What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam.”

    Khamenei also riffs on Western history, explaining that the United States and Europe have a long tradition of oppressing people of “color and non-Christians.”

    He describes his admiration for chastened Western historians who are, in his words, “deeply ashamed of the bloodsheds wrought in the name of religion between the Catholics and Protestants or in the name of nationality and ethnicity during the First and Second World Wars.”

    Khamenei calls on readers to ignore media portrayals of Islam: “Receive knowledge of Islam from its primary and original sources. Gain information about Islam through the Qur’an and the life of its great Prophet,” he writes.

    “Why does the power structure in the world want Islamic thought to be marginalized and remain latent?” Khamenei asks readers to ask themselves, then: “I would like you not to allow the derogatory and offensive image-buildings to create an emotional gulf between you and the reality.”

    The Supreme Leader finishes with a hopeful message that “future generations would write the history of this current interaction between Islam and the West with a clearer conscience and lesser resentment.”

    Khamenei’s letter comes at a time of thawing relations between Iran and the U.S., as the two longtime adversaries try to hammer out a deal on the future of Iran’s nuclear program.

    Barack Obama even sent a letter to Khamenei in October, pointing out that they share a common enemy in ISIS, the Sunni Islamist terror group that has seized huge chunks of Syria and Iraq.

    But diplomatic progress has not stopped the Ayatollah from bashing the West on social media in recent months. He called the U.S. the “enemy” on Twitter two weeks ago in a tweet about nuclear talks, and in August he blasted the treatment of African-Americans in a tweet about the protests after the police killing of an unarmed black teen in Ferguson, Missouri.

    And in November, Khamenei tweeted a nine-point explanation of why Israel should be “annihilated” — a comment that infuriated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who urged Western powers to pull out of nuclear negotiations with Iran.”

    • “The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them, I am addressing you, [the and overlook your parents, because this is what the Socialists do, we have Madrassas you have your kindergarden to be forced to play fair, because the future of your nations and countries will be in your programed hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your made- hearts; an unquenchable quest that only we can claim to satisfy – for the violated must always return to the violator to be set free, and we give you breastplates or righteousness and plastic swords to battle with so you can never be set free”.

      “The Paris attacks, which have provoked a wave of anti-Islam protests in the West, were retribution for Charlie Hebdo’s lampooning of Islam over the years. The magazine’s first issue after the attack, which features a caricature of the Prophet Mohammed on its cover, has sparked demonstrations across the Muslim world. You see how reasonable this all is? Doesn’t your European Human Rights Bible deprive citizens of freedom and liberty if they offend a preferential group? It foretells of us! We are the most Preferential Group. Allah has sactioned us – we are what you were practicing dhimmitude for and now you can join us to be set free.”

      “I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam, What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Deny it. Those who use force to get people to submit to Muhammadism – that is the violent and bloody frontline. I have parachuted into the comfortable homes to tell you you can submit without any shots ever being fired. So don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam. We have ours to show the way to do it. We are peaceful. A punch in the face from the Pope or the liberty in submission. Allah knows all things.”

    The thing about profiling is that it’s generally just a case of a thing looking like itself. If you see a smallish striped black and white horse running across the Serengeti, is it profiling to call it a zebra? Is it racist? Is it right wing? If those guys in the photo aren’t fanatical believers in militant Islam and avid supporters of Islamic terrorism, I will swim to Africa, run a zebra down, eat it whole, and spit the tail out tied out in a perfect reef knot. Yes, I will…

    Those guys should be placed in a POW facility and kept there until such time as the all the radical Imams admit that they are in error and give up the cause of Islamic Jihad forever. That’s fair, I think…
