Satire RE: Islam--A Heavy Handed Job

Brokeback Mohammed
By Nicholas Stix | February 15, 2006The National Endowment for the Arts has granted $100,000 to artist Andres Serrano to create an art work to be called “Piss Mohammed.”

The Brooklyn Museum will sponsor an exhibit by British artist Chris Ofili, in which the Prophet Mohammed is covered in dung and magazine cut-outs of male genitalia.

* * *

Playwright Terence McNally’s new show will soon appear on Broadway. In Brokeback Mohammed, Mohammed and his early followers are depicted as homosexuals whose idea of prayer was to form “daisy chains” facing Mecca. The play could not have been produced without the support of fellow playwright Tony Kushner. McNally and Kushner have both said that they will brave fatwas against them, if necessary, in the fight against religious intolerance and on behalf of freedom of expression.

New York Times columnist Frank Rich has celebrated the Brooklyn Museum exhibit and the coming McNally play, and the Times editorial page has published the Danish editorial cartoons mocking the Prophet. Moreover, the newspaper has announced that, for the rest of the year, it will give a gift of a copy of Salman Rushdie’s novel, The Satanic Verses, to every new subscriber.

In the ACLU’s newest campaign, it demands that the federal government revoke the tax-exempt status of all mosques that criticize the government or attack America. The organization has also threatened to sue any and all public schools promoting Islam, and demands that any school board and/or administrator guilty of continuing such propagation, be arrested.

Members of the Jewish Brotherhood have been firebombing the embassies and consulates of Moslem nations, calling for the death of Moslem editors, in protest against the blaspheming of Judaism and the anti-Semitic cartoons routinely published in Moslem newspapers, and brandishing signs with messages like “Massacre those who insult Judaism.”

* * *

Jews around the world are demanding that Moslem nations change their laws to respect Judaism, and apologize for blaspheming Judaism.

Steven Spielberg has apologized for Munich, and says he will redo the movie to make it more realistic, without the present phony moral equivalence between the Mossad operatives and the terrorists, or the guilt that his fictional operative presently feels about exacting vengeance for the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre.

* * *

Meanwhile, Spain has announced that it will be dynamiting the new, Great Mosque of Granada, and forcing all Moslems to leave the nation for the second time since 1492.

* * *

And out of Israel today, came the third videotape this week of Jewish activists beheading a kidnapped Hamas leader. Israel has said that the kidnappings and beheadings will continue, until all Moslems leave Israel, including the West Bank and Gaza. The Jewish state also leveled the Dome of the Rock, and said that all remaining mosques in Israel will be converted for use as latrines.

* * *

Last, but not least, George W. Bush has announced his Crusade to invade all Moslem nations, and forcibly convert their inhabitants to Christianity. He calls it “The Ann Coulter Plan.” Jonah Goldberg wrote a syndicated column praising the plan.

* * *

None of the above “news flashes” is true. But why should individuals, agencies, propaganda organs and governments not work to make them true? Islam is the world’s most intolerant, bellicose religion; for many Moslems, “tolerance” is but a euphemism for submission to Islam. And so, why should non-Moslems not give Moslems a dose of their own medicine, or at the very least apply their usual practices to Islam?

There Are Still Are Catholic Martyrs

Below you will find yet another example of standard Islamic responce
to any critisism of their horrid ideology!

Cardinal: Murdered priest a ‘Catholic martyr’

By Cindy Wooden



ROME – Cardinal Camillo Ruini, papal vicar for Rome, said he intends to open a cause for the sainthood of Father Andrea Santoro, a Rome missionary murdered in Turkey.

"In the process for beatification and canonization I intend to open, we will respect fully all of the rules and times of the church, but already I am internally persuaded that all of the elements of Christian martyrdom are present in the sacrifice of Father Andrea," Cardinal Ruini said Feb. 10 as he celebrated the priest's funeral.

Father Santoro, a priest of the Diocese of Rome who had worked in Turkey since 2000, was shot and killed Feb. 5 as he prayed in St. Mary Church in the Black Sea coastal city of Trebizond.

Turkish police arrested a 16-year-old male in connection with the murder.

Church rules would require Cardinal Ruini to wait five years before opening the official process to have Father Santoro declared a martyr, a formal recognition that he was killed out of hatred for his faith.

During the funeral at Rome's Basilica of St. John Lateran, Cardinal Ruini said Father Santoro knew and accepted the fact that his pastoral activity in Turkey would be largely hidden and quiet.

"In fact, he was convinced that a prayerful presence and the witness of his life would speak for themselves and would be an effective sign of Jesus Christ and a leaven of love and reconciliation," the cardinal said.

Cardinal Ruini also spoke about the reaction of the priest's mother, who sat in the front row, nodding in agreement.

"With all her heart the mother of Father Andrea forgives the person who armed himself to kill her son, and she feels great pain for him because he, too, is a son of the one God who is love," the cardinal said.

The General Militia

I have previously written about the potential use of the “General Militia” for controlling drug smugglers, returning deported persons (Often members of dangerous and organized criminal gangs), bearers of untreatable diseases (eg Drug resistant TB), potential terrorists and others illegally crossing our border with Mexico. I have also suggested OR insisted that the Second Amendment to the Constitution, in its reference to a “militia”, implies the general militia and NOT the National Guard (Not established until the year 1919). Therefore, I suggest that it would be wise to examine the Law as to what the “general militia” is and I offer the section of the United States Code reproduced below.

U.S. Code as of: 01/06/03

Section 311. Militia: composition and classes

      (a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied
males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section
313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a
declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States
and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the
National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are -
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard
and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of
the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the
Naval Militia.

Of course, those provisions limiting membership to males and only up to 45-years of age would probably
be declared unconstitutional as might the rather loose term “able-bodied”. Therefore, you, I and our Uncle
Harry and Aunt Harriet would probably be eligible for membership in any constitutional “general militia”
and, therefore, entitled to the personal possession of modern military arms and subject to a “call up” in such
cases as invasions of the USA as now represented by the uncontrolled flow of criminals across our borders.

Of course, we should consider some special members of the general public as special, “ready reserve”,
members of our “general militia”---Such as honorably discharged members of the Coast Guard and
our Armed Forces, honorably retired peace officers, members of organized shooting clubs, etc..
Those persons, if they volunteer, should be issued or lent standard military weapons, provided
200-plus rounds/year for supervised shooting practice, required to take 40-hours of other instruction/year
and made eligible for up to six-months service in such locations,
within the USA, where the Armed Forces
and National Guard and law enforcement officers are unable to keep the peace or protect the nation from
invasion---Such as on our border with Mexico or in the looter plagued areas hit by Hurricane Katrina.

Why Muslims Hate Crusaders

Many (Most?) Muslims use the term “crusaders” as an expression of hate or disdain. Why? The first crusaders were those who attempted, and failed, to take back the Holy Land from those who followed the teachings of Mohammed (As based on robbery, murder, genocide, rape and gross intolerance).

I suspect it is not that failed effort so much as the other crusaders who were, in fact, successful in taking back and liberating Spain and Portugal, Sicily, Greece much of the Balkan lands AND halted Muslim aggression at the walls of Vienna and in the Polish-Lithuanian area that really irritates them.. It may be also that the “Crusade In Europe”, which defeated the Muslim supported Hitler and resulted in the establishment of the State of Israel, specially and more recently irritates the average Muslim.

Muslims hate crusaders in the same manner AND for the same reasons that other murderers, thieves, rapists and robbers all hate the forces of law, order and civilization as embodied in our police, courts, prisons and execution chambers.

In fact, what is needed now is a new Crusade to resist Muslim aggression and to take back our civilization from the equally dangerous and aggressive atheist, secular humanists who both are attempting to destroy us. If reason does not work against both of those groups, then we must, very reluctantly, use the sword.
