More arrests of the religious muslims in Europe, geopolitics, more cartoons and celebrity idiocy: Links 3 on May 13 – 2015

1. Yet more arrests in Spain of Islamic State recruiters.

2. Obama greets Saudi royals

(Does anyone sense a kind of air of urgency in this interchange?)

3. The Right Scoop has a look at the derailed Amtrack train with some questions and Gateway Pundit reminds us of an FBI warning from a few years ago about exactly this and another link to that story

4. Turkey and Saudi Arabia alarm the West by backing Islamist extremists the Americans had bombed in Syria

Turkey and Saudi Arabia are actively supporting a hardline coalition of Islamist rebels against Bashar al-Assad’s regime that includes al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, in a move that has alarmed Western governments.

The two countries are focusing their backing for the Syrian rebels on the combined Jaish al-Fatah, or the Army of Conquest, a command structure for jihadist groups in Syria that includes Jabhat al-Nusra, an extremist rival to Isis which shares many of its aspirations for a fundamentalist caliphate.

5. Some decent animated cartoons mocking mohamed and the origins of islam

6. Here is a sticker we need to see everywhere

IDIOTS

7. Lindsay Lohan seems to be embracing Islam.

(They can have her. What a great testament to the moral clarity of Islam that she embraces it)

Thank you M., Buck, Richard, ML., and all!

  1. 6. Here is a sticker we need to see everywhere

    Idiots? I really am tired of people lumping all religions as bad.
    It really is stupid. Good religion’s are really the only chance we have to fight this mess we are getting ourselves in.

    • Good Religion is an oxymoron.

      Buddha, Jesus and Guru Nanak to cite a few self-starters were not religious, they were self-enlightened who critcized religion.

      Muhammad, Stalin, and Hitler to cite a few sick-bastards were not religious, they were self-grandizers who praised religion.

      So please explain this religion-business you want people to give up their souls to, because the Socialist-religious loot shopping-malls for trainers and TVs when they are upset; and the Islamist-dhimmis shoot the customers.

  2. 7. This is really bad news. She is a media magnet and will help improve the Image of Islam. She is carrying that as a statement not as she was reading it.

        • This is his 5-volume tafsir:

          https://ia801705.us.archive.org/31/items/TafseerEngCommQuranLong/Tafseer%20Eng_Comm_Quran%20Long.pdf

          Doesn’t look terribly metaphorical, in the bits that I’ve looked at. Here is his comment on 5:33 (which he gives as 5:34):

          ‘The object underlying the injunction embodied in the words, their hands and their feet be cut off on alternate sides, is, on the one hand, to disable the culprit from carrying on a war of aggression, and on the other, to leave him fit enough to earn his living by doing some work. The cutting off of the hand and the foot on the same side would leave the victim utterly helpless. The verse also shows that Islam does not hesitate to take extreme measures to uproot an evil when the interest of society or the State demand it. Islam is not a religion of false sentiments but of sound judgement and true reason.’

          P. 622

          • The only problem I have with the Ahmadi Muslims is they make rest of Islam look good while they are being executed for being heretics of Islam.

            If the Ahmadiyya Islam caught on it would have changed Islam but it didn’t.

            • I’m sorry but this would make me laugh if she was executed by a real muslim for being an Ahmadi Muslim.

              Sorry, it just sounds funny to me

            • OX Ao, I don’t trust the Ahmadiyya any more than the rest of them. They manipulate, they make thinly-veiled threats, the evade, they outright lie.

              That Maulvi Sher Ali was a big mucky-muck. As far as I’ve looked at it, his commentary on his own Koran translation (the one Lohan is carrying) doesn’t look to be very different in essentials from any other classical Koran commentary I’ve seen.

              In his long-winded discussion of the Fatiha, for example, the ones who have incurred Allah’s wrath are still the Jews, the ones who have gone astray are still the Christians. This isn’t softened by anything else he says about it. For instance:

              ‘The verse foretells a time when Christian nations would dominate the world, and it warns Muslims to be on their guard against the false beliefs and evil culture of these nations.’ (p 21)

              I think the Ahmadiyya play a highly duplicitous double or triple game with everyone, and that if they were somehow made masters of the world tomorrow, they would show themselves to be as intolerant and oppressive as any other sort of Muslim.

              (Warning, that commentary is a 190 MB file)

      • The writer in your link states:
        “In chapter 6, verse 109 of the Holy Quran we find: “And revile not those whom they call upon beside Allah, lest they, out of spite, revile Allah in their ignorance…” The logic of this directive is simple – don’t insult what others hold in reverence, and save your revered personalities from being insulated; don’t offend others, and save yourself from being offended. In other words, simply – live and let live.”

        But does this extract from the Koran actually mean “live and let live?”

        [6:110] And they swear their strongest oaths by Allah that if there came to them a Sign, they would surely believe therein. Say, ‘Surely, Signs are with Allah. But what should make you understand that when the Signs come, they will not believe?’
        [6:111] And We shall confound their hearts and their eyes, as they believed not therein at the first time, and We shall leave them in their transgression to wander in distraction.

        This is not “live and let live,” this is contempt for kufar:

        [6:117] And if thou obey the majority of those on earth, they will lead thee astray from Allah’s way. They follow nothing but mere conjecture, and they do nothing but lie.

        Taqiyya – that extract of camel urine and milk that will kill you if swallowed – yet again.

        • Considered honestly, the Koran, the life of Mohammed and the history of Islam show nothing but complete and utter contempt for kuffar. So the Ahmadiyya have to twist and ignore and omit and lie at every turn. Rather than admit to the difficulties and take them on, they just adapt the many forms of Islamic duplicity and prevarication for their own ends.

    • Some time ago, a pernicious and evil little Nazi camp capo named George Soros came up with a bumper sticker that said, ‘coexist’ made of symbols of all world religions. Of course that sticker was made to stop people from reacting to, forming a needed backlash against, or even discussing the role of islam in world violence.

      This is a mocking ideogram of that which says ‘Idiot’ but using slight variations of the same symbols for the various religions.

    • It’s an atheist statement calling the religious idiots. But I think the poster thought it was referring to the idiots who sucked up the “coexist” propaganda meme.

    • Take off the first letter of the Hebrew word for truth, and it reads death.
      Something that kapo would know because his dad was into Esperanto.

  3. Just read why Bahrain’s not sending its Big Cheese:
    Bahrain’s royal court announced Wednesday that rather than travel to Washington, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa would be attending a horse show and meeting with Queen Elizabeth II.

  4. #2 The interpreter deleted the first inshallah. Maybe two inshallah’a in an utterance gave it a sense of urgency.

    • You got me to watch it.
      They all looked shifty and evasive. No eye contact, really bad atmosphere.
      Watch the financial markets take that in, together with shots fired over the bow at an oil tanker!

  5. #6 “Idiots” is an atheist statement. It’s not talking about idiots who suck up the subversive “coexist” meme.

    As far as people who believe in the supernatural elements of the faiths, I can’t say I disagree. (especially the pentagram. Who devotes themselves to a religion just out of spite?) But faiths aren’t just mumbo jumbo to lure in and control the credulous masses, but ethical systems and a connection to 10,000 years of human history.

    Engaging in Christianity connects us to a system of belief and thought that stretches back thousands of years through Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Egyptian fertility faiths, Greek and Roman faith and philosophy. But if someone devotes themselves to it because they really think some guy was literally born in order to be sacrificed and thus make us somehow magically pure again, and the whole point of the exercise is to get a reward for being a good little boy then, well…

    Jesus, Mithras, the Zoroastrian deities, Osirus and other advanced pagan deities are repositories of meanings, not actual beings.

    I’d say cynically concocting a religion based upon a guy who didn’t exist for the express purpose of creating legions of murderous fanatics and subjugating other peoples is a heresy against all faith. Against the very concept of faith.

      • Such a book has essentially already been written. It’s called the Golden Bough, by J. G. Frazer. He devoted his life to writing it and it’s several large, dense volumes. These can be found individually on the internet. Too large to really read all the way through, it’s primarily used as a reference. The abridged version is still a brick of several hundred pages and can be found in most book stores.

        He started by asking why a particular practice, the ritual murder of a king or priest in an ancient religion, came to be. I think a the priest king would stalk a sacred grove, then someone would come in and kill him, then the killer would become the next priest king.

        Reading about various kinds of sacrafices and their spiritual purposes sheds light upon jihadism.

        The reason muslims so hotly deny the diefication of christ is not just because they wanted Muhammad to take his place in importance in peoples minds, but because they wanted jihadists to think they would become christ like figures when they died in jihad. When a jihadist dies, they don’t just go to an adult film set in the sky but they fulfill the christ’s function of “saving” other people, getting them forgiven of their sins and allowed into heaven.

    • Every baby is born with talents inherited from parents surviving their cultural onslaught. Selectively-retarded as in Islamists and Socialists from The Universal Projects, or selectively-intelligent as in Japan or Israel.

      With either neurological building block to work with, a mixture of superstitious fears and Old Wives Tales to make up a paradigm of life comfortable for one political-priest class and acceptable for the laity is not a book I want to read, let alone devotionally follow.
