Should Islam Be Banned for Blasphemy? (hint: yes)

Should Islam Be Banned for Blasphemy? (hint: yes)

Soon after Muslim gunmen killed 12 people at Charlie Hebdo offices, which published satirical caricatures of Muslim prophet Muhammad, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)—the “collective voice of the Muslim world” and second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations—is again renewing calls for the United Nations to criminalize “blasphemy” against Islam, or what it more ecumenically calls, the “defamation of religions.”

Yet the OIC seems to miss one grand irony: if international laws would ban cartoons, books, and films on the basis that they defame Islam, they would also, by logical extension, have to ban the entire religion of Islam itself—the only religion whose core texts actively and unequivocally defame other religions, including by name.

To understand this, consider what “defamation” means. Typical dictionary-definitions include “to blacken another’s reputation” and “false or unjustified injury of the good reputation of another, as by slander or libel.” In Muslim usage, defamation simply means anything that insults or offends Islamic sensibilities.

Islam is the only religion whose core texts actively and unequivocally defame other religions.

However, to gain traction among the international community, the OIC cynically maintains that such laws should protect all religions from defamation, not just Islam (even as Muslim governments ban churches, destroy crucifixes, and burn Bibles). Disingenuous or not, the OIC’s wording suggests that any expression that “slanders” the religious sentiments of others should be banned.

What, then, do we do with Islam’s core religious texts—beginning with the Koran itself— which slanders, denigrates and blackens the reputation of other religions? Consider Christianity alone: Koran 5:73 declares that “Infidels are they who say God is one of three,” a reference to the Christian Trinity; Koran 5:72 says “Infidels are they who say God is the Christ, [Jesus] son of Mary”; and Koran 9:30 complains that “the Christians say the Christ is the son of God … may God’s curse be upon them!”

Eerst een paar inleidende woorden. Er zijn nu een paar maanden verstreken sinds in de zomer van 2014 Ari Shavit zijn New York Times bestsellende Judas-kus aan Israël in de vorm van een cultuur-verraders-boek in een waarachtig links-narcistische zelfmanifestatie-triomftocht langs alle “literaire” hotspots in Amerika en Europa . . . . . eh . . . . . . . verkocht. Ik heb van dat verschríkkelijke boek alle 17 hoofdstukken één voor één geanalyseerd, steeds onder de titel “Het Stockholm-dualisme van Ari Shavit” met het betreffende hoofdstuk-nummer er achter. Wie naar analyse nummer 17 gaat, vindt onderaan nummertje 16 de hyperlinks naar de analyses…

Countdown to WorldWide condemnation of Israel

Countdown to WorldWide condemnation of Israel

Gaza cut off: Israel closes border crossings indefinitely

Israel has said it’s shutting the only two operating Gaza border crossings indefinitely. This comes a day after a projectile hit Israel from the strip, but caused no damage. Border closures threaten to isolate already devastated Gaza completely.

READ MORE: Inquiry launched into Israeli attacks on UN Gaza schools

The move will affect both the Kerem Shalom and Erez border crossings, Haartez reported, quoting Israel’s defense establishment. The authorities have notified the Palestinians of the decision.

Meanwhile, the three other crossings into Gaza are still not operational and the passage from the area into Egypt – the Rafah crossing – remains closed.

From now on and until further notice, only critical humanitarian aid going into Gaza will be allowed via the Erez crossing.

Evil empire strikes again, Egypt ofcourse is innocent because the’re not jews

Egypt demolishes 8 miles of Gaza housing, closes border

Egypt demolishes 8 miles of Gaza housing, closes border

No one cares, no jews involved so it’s allright. No UN prostesting, no FreeGaza prostests, total silence…. Hypocritical is to weak an understatement.

 
______________________________________________________

Egypt has started work on a controversial buffer zone by destroying homes along its border with the Gaza Strip, following some of the worst attacks on the army since President Mohamed Morsi was ousted last year.

Bulldozers began destroying several abandoned houses along the frontier on Wednesday, just days after armed men attacked an army post killing 31 soldiers in the area.

Egypt has declared a state of emergency in the Sinai Peninsula and indefinitely closed the Rafah crossing, the only non-Israeli passage for Gazans.

It also accelerated plans to create the 500-metre deep buffer zone, and told the area’s 10,000 residents they had 48 hours to pack up and leave before they would destroy around 800 homes.

The buffer zone will extend along the 10km border with Gaza, with water-filled trenches to thwart tunnel diggers.

Turkey doesn’t want a terrorist state on its borders


Who does…

Turkey Voting For Christmas
By Alan | October 12, 2014 | BBC bias

Interesting take on the world from the BBC.

It has been telling us recently that Turkey is in a dilemma concerning ISIS. On the one hand it doesn’t want a terrorist state on its borders, on the other it doesn’t want to see the Kurds becoming more established and powerful.

So Turkey has plumped to support ISIS…probably not too hard a decision for the Islamist Erdogan who no doubt fancies resurrecting the Ottoman Empire.

Such a stance might also reflect the opinion of Israel as it faces the reality of what a terrorist state on its borders looks like.

BBC R4 promotes unchallenged anti-Israel propaganda and warped histories of Jerusalem


BBC is nowadays a spokesperson for the Islamic State it seems. Their uniquely warped view of reality mostly fits in with the viewpoints professed by the more radical of the ideology

BBC Watch

On September 3rd BBC Radio 4 aired an edition of a programme called ‘Agree to Differ’ which will be repeated on the evening of September 6th and is available here. The title of the edition is “Jerusalem” and the programme is presented by Matthew Taylor – today the chief executive of the RSA and formerly Chief Adviser on Political Strategy to Tony Blair during his premiership.R4 Agree to Differ

At the beginning of the programme Taylor informs listeners:

“…we’re going to give you a completely new way to understand a controversial issue and to decide where you stand.”

“We’re looking at a dispute that’s almost as old as civilization itself. We’re exploring the respective claims of Palestinians and Israelis over the city of Jerusalem.”

That historical illiteracy unfortunately continues throughout the programme with Taylor promoting a variety of bizarre and inaccurate interpretations of historic, political and legal issues as we…

Mandela, When number 46664 is no more


Now that the health of former ANC leader Nelson Mandela (94) is deteriorating, I ask myself – and I think rightly so – what is going to happen with the white farmers in South Africa. We do not read so much about it in the media because after all they are only whites. Genocide of other peoples and cultures is much more interesting.
Since apartheid was abolished in South Africa is a lot has changed. This time it’s the white farmers turn to get killed, but the Western mainstream press remains silent … It’s politically correct to kill whites these days so …

Nelson Mandela

Mandela is known by the majority of the world as the man who was incarcerated for years because he fought for the freedom of his country and his countrymen. And that we should feel sorry for him or even find him noble because things like these are written about him:

“This is a man who earned respect, in his nonviolent struggle against injustice and racism. In his humble honesty, he is a model for all politicians. His name will echo in history as one of the great ones of the earth “(source – 4th comment).

The ANC and Mandela are big supporters of Marxism-Leninism and aren’t shy to use violence to achieve their goal.
People all over the world wish him strength and recovery. Some thank him for what he has done. But no one is talking about the real Mandela who was not for nothing in a cell on Robben Island, sentenced to life imprisonment.

“In 1964 he was convicted for his involvement in the Rivonia gang. This gang plotted assassinations against whites across South Africa, but especially against leaders of the Afrikaners and their families. In this ‘Rivonia Trial’ due to his involvement he got life. ” (Source)

Mandela knew even back then that the whites were necessary for the economy in South Africa. That alone is the reason they are still there. It has even got Mandela the Nobel Peace Prize (1993). A ridiculous price, that every terrorist on this planet can get. As long as one fights for justice all means are justified to arrive at the goal, unfortunately.

ANC

The ANC is nothing more than a terrorist organization were terror and corruption prevail. What about the car fire killings in 2003, during President Tabo Mbeki’s reign, Mandela’s successor and also a member of the ANC. What about the bombing in Pretoria with 19 deaths?
Another sweetie from the South African club, but democratically elected, is Jacob Zuma the current president of South Africa and fellow party member of Mandela and Mbeki. We all know his song called Kill the Boer.

The ANC is a feeble excuse for a party, meant for people who want to give in to their animal instincts. The future of South Africa in the hands of this kind of people. The future of their own people, the white farmers, but also that of the South African economy. And if we look at other African countries where the local population is in power, it’s not a hopeful prospect

Every coin has two sides

Of course it’s not just only misery the ANC and Mandela have brought to South Africa. Apartheid was abolished and South Africa is almost free from the colonial mindset brought by white Westerners.

The white farmers who still live there, should we see them then as collateral damage?
