Lines that ought to be jokes..but are dead serious.
Angel’s first prize goes to:
Leading Muzzlim cleric
“No blood was ever shed in Denmark because of this, and no blood will be shed,” Chedid said in an interview with the Associated Press. “We are trying to calm down people, but let’s see what happens. Let’s open a dialogue.”
No blood was ever shed?! (in Denmark eh) Ha.
Even the NY Slimes reported on it.
DAMASCUS, Syria, Feb. 4 (AP) — Thousands of Syrians enraged by caricatures of Islam’s revered prophet torched the Danish and Norwegian embassies in Damascus on Saturday — the most violent in days of furious protests by Musl-ims in Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
In Gaza, Palestinians marched through the streets, storming European buildings and burning German and Danish flags. Protesters smashed the windows of the German cultural center and threw stones at the European Commission building, the police said.
Iraqis rallying by the hundreds demanded an apology from the European Union, and the leader of the Pale-stinian group Ha-mas called the cartoons “an unforgivable insult” that merited punishment by death.
Pakistan summoned the envoys of nine Western nations in protest, and Europeans took to the streets in Denmark and Britain.
Denmark republishes toons!
At least Denmark is showing some backbone and self esteem:
Several Danish newspapers reprinted on Wednesday a cartoon of the Prophet Mo-ham-med that caused bloody riots in the Islamic world two years ago, a move that prompted Iran to angrily summon Denmark’s ambassador.
Three of Denmark’s biggest dailies were among 17 that published the cartoon, vowing to defend freedom of expression a day after police foiled a plot to murder the cartoonist.
Oh, ya mean like this discrimation of Muzlims?
Following the 12 drawings’ original publication in 2005, rioting continued in some Mus-lim countries through the beginning of 2006.
Muzlims Rampaging and Killing
Three Danish embassies were attacked and at least 50 people were killed in protests in 2006 in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
Since then, several young Mu-slims have been convicted in Denmark of planning bomb attacks partly connected to protests against the cartoons.
May I present the pastry “formerly known as the Danish”:
In Tehran bakeries across the capital covered up their ads for Danish pastries Thursday after the confectioners’ union ordered the name change in retaliation for caricatures of the Muzlim prophet published in a Danish newspaper.
Umm…a bit of perspective here.. At least 19 people have been killed in protests over the past several weeks..not to mention the ones wounded and the property burned and destroyed.
Iran, being the poster child for peace and good will has cut all commercial ties with Denmark in retaliation for the prophet cartoons.
A little Danish Perhaps
Here’s a lil re-run of Angel’s Recommended Code of Conduct:
How bout Muzlims…
1-Dismantling belief systems, social structures, and institutional practices that oppress and dehumanize those who disagree with them?
2-Stop perpetrating global violence through war, enslavement and genocide.
3-End the conditions that enable and perpetuate hatred, bashing, riots and
4-Change the notion that Muzlims- (in their system of hierarchical oppression) as a specific group are inherenly dominant over others…….(Americans, Christians, Joooooos…for instance)
5- How bout letting go of gaining power and control of the Universe while your’e at it?
It’s a dang shame Clerics of Muzlimhood that some of us have been doin our homework over the past year or so.
Here’s just a spoonful of some of mine: (Click on pink links)
Burning the flag of Israel to Protest Denmark..ha
Gotta luv people whose actions contradict their stated or internal beliefs.
The cartoonophobics advocate a particular standard, and yet publicly refuse to apply that very same standard to themselves. We gotta name for that in the “satanic West” — it’s called hypocrisy and sociopathy.
They want a Cartoon Code of Conduct..ha
Pssssssssst…Mista Cleric………Burning an embassy……… THAT’S not barbaric is it, jus checkin…?
