Lowe’s adverts.

A little about America, which nowadays is just a couple of hours down the road. It’s interesting how Americans are battling the decision by the home improvement giant, Lowe’s, to stop advertising on an Islamic reality show. How tolerant Americans are standing up for a religious and political system dedicated to destroying America’s national religion because it dares say that it believes god has a son.

I mean, as it says in the Koran (Shakir):

[ 9: 29 ] Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

[ 9: 30 ] And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!

[ 9: 31 ] They have taken their doctors of law and their monks for lords besides Allah, and ( also ) the Messiah son of Marium and they were enjoined that they should serve one Allah only, there is no god but He; far from His glory be what they set up ( with Him ).

So, America is to be destroyed because of its beliefs but its people think that’s OK because they’re tolerant, wonderful people. It’s a bit reminiscent of Spike Milligan’s very short poem: The boy stood on the burning deck whence all the crew had fled – twit!

 

Christianity

1: Although still a cause for intense debate, there may have been a preacher called Jesus who taught a pacifist version of the Jewish religion for about 3 years. He then inexplicably disappeared. After the disappearance, the first followers of this Jesus the Christ, as he became known, believed he had been absorbed by God because he was such a good man. Of two things we can be certain: there was no nativity and no crucifixion.

2:  Many cults and sects appeared after the disappearance of Jesus. The stories on which they were based varied widely. At least one sect taught that Jesus had been reincarnated.

3: A sect began a story that Jesus was crucified by the Romans. This was considered so dangerous by Roman authorities that they killed and tortured Christians. One of the preferred forms of killing was crucifixion, a common form of capital punishment used by the Romans. In response to the persecution by the Romans, stories arose defining Jesus in terms of a supernatural entity.

4: A particularly aggressive Christian sect convinced Constantine that he could unite his army under banner of Christianity. After Constantine’s enemies were vanquished, the sect held conferences to decide what beliefs should constitute Christianity. The supernatural version of the Jesus story was chosen as the ultimate and only version. Stories were chosen and adapted to fit the emerging supernaturalist version. Those who disagreed with this version were tortured and killed by the emerging Christian Church.

5: The supernatural version split into two; the Orthodox Church in the east and the Roman Catholic Church in the west. These were the only versions of Christianity allowed. Christian missionaries from both sects were sent around known world to promote the supernatural version.

6: Some missionaries were killed by members of indigenous religions who objected to their religions being usurped by Christianity. Sometimes Christianity was partly absorbed into old religions. The Roman Catholic Church, in particular, used this to argue that versions other than Roman Catholicism must be eradicated.

7: Many people were killed by purges committed by the Roman Catholic Church in the name of promoting its version of the supernatural Jesus story.

8: The Roman Catholic Church couldn’t eradicated every pagan instinct and it was almost brought down by its own members who demanded a goddess figure. The Church introduced Virgin Mary worship to pacify the demands for a goddess.

9. Eventually, Protestantism became a significant force in Christianity as more and more people came to despise the Roman Catholics’ strict demands. Many variants of protestantism emerged and were tolerated.

10. Modern Christianity emerged in response to the scientific and rational revolution known as the Enlightenment. Although Christianity has been badly diminished by fewer and fewer people feeling a need for religion, it still survives. However, Christianity is still based on the fabrication of a supernatural Jesus and is therefore a target for historians and archaeologists.

The Flight 93 Memorial

Muslims Against Sharia Blog

American’s have got to be the most stupid people on the planet. Their country is subjected to an attack by Muslim terrorists in which the World Trade Centre’s twin towers are destroyed, the Pentagon catches fire after a plane is rammed into it – and the bravery of dozens of people on a hijacked flight, who responded to the hijacking by fighting the hijackers and were consequently killed for their actions, are rewarded with a memorial which to everyone else in the world is so obviously a celebration of Islam!

Western Muslims’ Racist Rape Spree

FrontPage Magazine – Western Muslims’ Racist Rape Spree

“In
Australia, Norway, Sweden and other Western nations, there is a
distinct race-based crime in motion being ignored by the diversity
police: Islamic men are raping Western women for ethnic reasons. We
know this because the rapists have openly declared their sectarian
motivations.

When a number of teenage Australian girls were
subjected to hours of sexual degradation during a spate of gang rapes
in Sydney that occurred between 1998 and 2002, the perpetrators of
these assaults framed their rationale in ethnic terms. The young
victims were informed that they were “sluts” and “Aussie pigs” while
they were being hunted down and abused.

In Australia’s New
South Wales Supreme Court in December 2005, a visiting Pakistani rapist
testified that his victims had no right to say no, because they were
not wearing a headscarf …”

I have noticed over the years that the political left in the United Kingdom has, in the face of evidence to the contrary, continued to treat Muslims as an oppressed minority. In many cities that is certainly no longer the case. However, the left has also stridently supported women’s rights. Are we headed for a situation like that which eventually caused Satre to condemn and disown the Russian form of communism? No longer can the left declare support for women’s rights and support Muslim groups with impunity. The two are diametrically opposed. Why isn’t the left giving their support to groups like Muslims Against Sharia and condemning Muslims who call for Sharia to be imposed? I have a ghastly feeling that psychiatrists and psychologists are going to be inundated with severely mentally-confused left-wingers in the next couple of years.

Pope Cartoons

In case anyone feels I am anti-Muslim after my last comment, I can assure them I am not. I am anti-the-worst-excesses-of-religion. Recently the Pope was in Africa and condemned charities for handing out condoms. This attitude I cannot agree with. It completely ignores the reality of human relationships and sexual practices. I am not the only person who views such Papal statements with disgust. Below is a link to cartoons satirizing the Popes attitude.

Turkey and the European Union

Deal being so close to the European mainland, I am always interested in news relating to Europe. Turkey is in the first stages of applying for membership of the European Union. Regrettably, Turkey is also increasingly turning to a more radical form of Islamic government. News that two Christians have been arrested in Turkey for being Christian does not sit well with European ideals of freedom and tolerance. In fact, a number of verses within the Koran seem to indicate that if Turkey becomes an Islamic state then it has a duty to attack Christians and Jews (Shakir translation).

9: 29 Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

9: 30 And the Jews say: Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!

Some say that these verse indicate that God will deal with Christians and Jews after death and that they do not relate to life on Earth. However, earlier in the same Sura (chapter), the Koran says:

9: 14 Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and assist you against them and heal the hearts of a believing people.

Here, it seems that God is giving Muslims the right to take action against non-believers (in Islam) on God’s behalf. It will certainly be interesting to see if the European Union does eventually agree to Turkey’s admission into the EU.

An 8 year old child is punished in Iran!

An 8 year child has had a truck run over his arm for stealing a piece of bread. Please do not watch this video if you are of a nervous disposition. It does, however, show how primitive a culture Iran has at the moment and how wrong President Obama is to cuddle up to Iran. It also illustrates why United Nations efforts to ban criticism of Islam are so misguided. If we cannot criticize Islam then we cannot criticize this sort of behaviour because it was done in the name of Islam.
