Seeing as today is the first day of Ramadan, I thought I'd share a little Muslim culture with you all.
Recently I was chided rather strongly by a Hollywood Producer friend of mine for a joke about Muhammad and Obama I had sent which I thought was funny and many others did too. Guess he agrees with Comedy Central's decision to censor South Park too? And he thinks it fine they received death threats? South Park's Depiction Of Muhammad Censored AGAIN
Well, apparently he failed to see my sense of humor surrounding this whole Islam thing in a big way. I have to hear jokes about Christianity and think a little give and take between religions is fine. However, his response and attitude got me to thinking.
Seeing as he has two films in production, leads a busy social life, and enjoys political discussions only with people who think exactly the same way as he does, I realized he probably wasn't aware of certain political aspects of Islam and its affect on countries who allow it to infiltrate which is why he has such a high opinion of the Muslim faith. (BTW, I use the word infiltrate appropriately because that's what is done by this socio-political movement.)
My friend doesn't know, or else why would he defend a religion that believes in killing gays, no freedom of speech, stoning and oppressing women, and all kinds of other awful things like killing Jews (of which he is one) that I personally find extremely abhorrent and repulsive.
However, don't let me try to persuade you that the idea to build a super Mosque near Ground Zero (even though there are 100's nearby already) is completely insane, here's a wonderful British, Atheist Comedian named Pat Condell to give you his opinion on the stupid idea in case you hadn't heard the news yet. He will explain this so much more clearly than I will ever do so.
Plus, for those who are too busy to read, here's a video to make it easier to watch and learn.:)
And for his non-religious rant against ignorant people who support Islam - Enjoy! I like how he just tells it like it is - straight up and British. Take it with a stiff upper lip I say old chap. Don't get your knickers in a bunch. And all the other silly British sayings we Americans like to quote. lol
And for those who can't believe Bloomberg is really going forward with a Mosque at Ground Zero, here's a Muslim Canadian Congress Board Member, Raheel Raza, who agrees with Pat and myself that building a mosque there is in extremely poor taste and a slap in the face to those who were killed in 9/11.
Please click this link to read her letter: http://www.muslimcanadiancongress.org/
She's EXTREMELY articulate and someone you will definitely want to hear discuss this issue. Get over the fact it's on Fox News. If you don't learn to expand your mind beyond CNN and MSNBC you'll stay ignorant a lot longer.
And I say that in the kindest manner possible.
And because I always like to throw in a little humor when I can, just in case you also haven't heard of the efforts by Red Eye Host, Greg Gutfeld, to build a gay Islam bar right next to the proposed mosque, here's coverage from multiple sources (not just FOX!) which is very funny and provocative.
Or just click his name above - it says it all there too.:)
And to cap it all off in a very visual manner, here's a little Cheers parody to leave you with. If you care to sign the petition denouncing the Mosque being built on Ground Zero you can do so here: We Oppose the Mosque at "Ground Zero"
Watch this last video with caution because if you thought my innocent joke might offend, you aint seen nothing yet.:) Don't worry, it's only 51 seconds long. How offensive can it be?
But on a more serious note, if I haven't lost you already, please read this which I posted a year ago regarding: "America as the Last Man Standing" - In light of what's happening worldwide have to share Speech by Geert Wilders, chairman of the Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, 25 September 2008, Hudson Institute
and if you're still not convinced, read this article adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's
book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and
And I quote:
"Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.
Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.
When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.
Here's how it works:
As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:
United States -- Muslim 0.6%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1.8%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%
At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize to other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:
Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%
From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:
France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:
Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 15%
After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%
At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:
Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%
From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:
Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77..5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%
After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:
Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' -- the Islamic House of Peace. Here there's supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:
Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 100%
Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.
"Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel." -- Leon Uris, 'The Haj'
It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.
Today's 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22%
of the world's population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates
of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers.
Muslims will exceed 50% of the world's population by the end of this
And this commentary is from someone else who sent me this to begin with:
"Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the hen house.
The wolves will be herding the sheep!
Obama appoints two devout Muslims to Homeland Security posts. Doesn't this make you feel safer already?
Obama and Janet Napolitano appoint Arif Alikhan, a
devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).
NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government
official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout
Protestant...? Just wondering.
Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn't this make you feel safer already??
Was it not "Devout Muslim men" who flew planes into U.S. buildings 8 years ago?
Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood?
Please forward this important information to any who care about the future of our respective countries.?
And now back to me and my opinionated opinion:
And why is a Devout Muslim, the financier of this NYC Mosque, representing the United States around the world is beyond me too. Oh, you haven't heard that either? What news station are you listening to? Might be time to expand your news horizons a little bit... lol
Here is all the info on this guy since I know you're busy.. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf
And since no one else will say it, let me let the Muslim Canadian Council express it best:
The MCC challenges Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf about his claim that building the mosque will increase tolerance for Muslims when the evidence is the exact opposite. “Do you not understand that building a mosque at Ground Zero is equivalent to permitting a Serbian Orthodox Church near the killing fields of Srebrenica where 6,000 Muslim men and boys were slaughtered?” the letter asked.
And that's all she wrote.
Happy Ramadan. Now don't you feel culturalized? lol
