The Muslim Ministry of Funny Complaints

The Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris on January 7th
of twelve of the publication’s staff members, and also of the murder of four
Jews in a Paris kosher shop by one of the terrorists, is having some curious
but not all that surprising reverberations. The
New York Times
published an article about a week afterward originally
soliciting from Muslim settlers accounts of their horrendous experiences of
living in countries whose cultures they detest anyway (and in which they refuse
to assimilate), while the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), according
to Arab News, wants
to take the satirical magazine to court and massacre its staff with legal
expenses and noisome litigation.
After the New York Times received some heated
queries from spokesmen of other “minorities,” chiefly from Jewish organizations
that wondered why the Times did not also solicit the “experiences” of Jews in
European countries in light of repeated attacks on Jews by Muslims, the Times
amended its solicitation to one of a general nature, so as not to seem bigoted
or discriminatory in favor of Muslims. (I don’t think the ruse fooled anyone
familiar with the Times’ anti-Israel bias.)  The Tablet
reported on this sleight-of-hand on January 15th.
                      
*Sometime today, the Times changed the
headline on this
feature from “Share Your Experience as a Muslim in Europe” to “Share Your
Experience After the Paris Attacks.” As of 5:20 p.m. Thursday [January 15th],
the text of the piece issues the same call, initially directed to Muslims, to
Europeans more broadly.
A
Twitter search of the article URL shows that the feature changed Thursday.
                           
I can only satirize the episodes of harassment and victimhood
sampled by the Times related by put-upon Muslims in Germany:
  “I was coming out of a falafel shop and I
felt something hit my back. I thought I’d been shot by a cowardly kaffir! Then this bigoted Islamophobe
rushed past me. People gave me strange looks as walked home. Then one of my
wives asked me while I was praying why I had a GO PEGIDA! sign taped to my
back. I was mortified! I beat her for interrupting my shadada.” RA, Dresden
 – “I was pushing my pram with my four kids in
it when I was out shopping when this Islamophobe gave me the eye, practically
looking right through my burqa! It was humiliating. I really expected him to
try and rape me then and there. My kids began crying!” ZZ, Cologne
 – “I was being interviewed for a job in a
cheese shop and the kaffir pig who
was the interviewer pulled an Obama on me and asked if I knew the Swiss
language. I said I didn’t, and he dismissed me, saying ‘Ignorant Muslim
raghead! There is no Swiss language!’ I left with tears in my eyes! How was I
to know that? Educational opportunities for Muslims don’t exist here.” MC, Potsdam
 – “I work in an auto repair shop as a tire
inflator and all day I have to look at all the “pin-up” pictures that plaster the
walls of the shop put there by these subhuman apes and grease monkeys I work
with. They show Kate Upton and Kate Middleton and Megyn Kelley nude on the
beach and doing disgusting things, flaunting their uncovered meat most
immodestly! I go home every night with a severe headache and blurred vision.
I’ve asked the manager many times to take down this filth out of respect for my
faith, but he always tells me, ‘Don’t look at them.’ As though I had a choice!”

As I remarked in a past column on Charlie Hebdo, no
one has ever strapped a Muslim to a chair, pinned open his eyelids (as happened
to Malcolm McDowell in Clockwork Orange),
and forced him to look at a series of Mohammad cartoons with the object of
having him vomit in “conditioned” revulsion all over his keffiyah or perhaps
causing him to die as a “martyr” from a Koranic
aneurism.
The New York Times vetted the authenticity of these
complaints with filed petitions of redress and correction with the German
Ministry of Muslim Moaning and Malefactious Misrepresentations (Deutsch Ministerium für muslimische Stöhnen und
Malefactious Verfälschungen). The Times
has scheduled for publication next week a similar litany of complaints with its
French sister agency, The Bureau
of Muslim Whining and
Malefactious Misrepresentations (Le Bureau des musulmans
de pleurnicher et Malefactious Fausses déclarations).
Just kidding. The New York Times vets nothing. Its
left-wing bias excuses it from fact-checking, from adhering to any kind of
truth, and from reality.  
As an atheist, my columns regularly attract
Christian religionists who either agree with what I have to say about Islam,
and assure themselves that God is going punish the perpetrators who will burn
in hell for eternity, or they immediately charge me with being a Stalinist in
league with the liberals, the Left, and Obama. In fact, Communists are imbued
with their own brand of mysticism, one shared with liberals and the Left; Obama
is merely the new mystic of muscle poster boy.
The Obfuscator-in-Chief’s State
of The Union
Address, aside from sounding like a broken
record
of  Obama’s past State of the
Union addresses, was a verbal trip through a Fantasy Land which Obama wishes
you would believe existed, in spite of the evidence of your senses, a realm in
which non-A is A and everything is just hunky-dory and getting hunkier under
his imperial direction.
It’s
why we speak out against the deplorable anti-Semitism that has resurfaced in
certain parts of the world. It’s why we continue to reject offensive
stereotypes of Muslims — the vast majority of whom share our commitment to
peace.
                       
“Deplorable anti-Semitism”? Expressed by whom?
Martians, or Muslims? “Stereotypes of Muslims”? Or caricatures of its icons,
such as of Mohammad in Charlie Hebdo? By “stereotyping,” does he also include
profiling likely terrorists, or simply making cogent observations of an
insidious ideology that brooks no tolerance of any disagreement or incisive
examination and of its principal “holy” texts, which pointedly sanctions and
encourages anti-Semitism? The answer is: Yes, he includes all of that.
Obama referred to the anemic
attacks on ISIS
which nevertheless has expanded the territory it conquers
in spite of the air campaign to stem its tide:
In
his remarks, President Obama underscored the importance of “assisting people
everywhere who stand up to the bankrupt ideology of violent extremism.”
He will sanction the assistance to everyone except
Christians, Yazidis, Kurds, and any other group he’d really rather not know
anything about. Which means: No assistance to anyone. That would implicitly
“defame” ISIS and Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Brotherhood.
“This
effort will take time,” Mr. Obama said. “It will require focus. But we will
succeed. And tonight, I call on this Congress to show the world that we are
united in this mission by passing a resolution to authorize the use of force
against ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant).”
Just don’t “focus” too intently on that “violent
extremism.” You might think it has something to do with Islam’s fundamental and
irrevocable nature, which is violence to the core.
Not to be left behind in the assault on freedom of
speech – a.k.a., “stereotyping” – various Islamic organizations want the West
to codify censorship in order to suppress the study and/or mockery of Islam. The
Daily Mail
(London) in its January 21st article, “Muslim scholars urge UN to outlaw ‘contempt’ of religions,” reported:
The
Qatar-based International Union of Muslim Scholars, headed by influential
preacher Yusuf al-Qaradawi, appealed to Muslims to continue peaceful protests
against images of the Prophet Mohammed but “not to resort to any
violence”….
In a statement released Tuesday, the union
said there should be protection for “prophets” and urged Islamic
countries to submit a draft law to the UN calling for defamation of religions
to be outlawed. The union said the UN should then issue a “law criminalizing
contempt of religions and the prophets and all the holy sites”.
It also called for the West “to protect
Muslim communities from attacks, whether they are citizens or residents or
visitors”.
Referring to the Charlie Hebdo cartoon
of Mohammad that was published about a week after the massacre of the
publication’s staff by jihadists,
The
union has condemned the publication of a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed
holding a “Je suis Charlie” sign under the headline “All is
forgiven” in the first Charlie Hebdo edition since Islamist gunmen killed
12 people in an attack on its offices.
It
said that the new drawing would give “credibility” to the idea that
“the West is against Islam” and warned the image would incite further
hatred. Qaradawi, 88, is seen as a spiritual guide of Egypt’s banned Muslim
Brotherhood, the movement of ousted former president Mohamed Morsi.
Yes, the West should
be
against Islam, qua ideology
and as a threat to Western civilization. Islam is a kind of ideological polio that
enfeebles the West and confines it to the wheelchair of accommodation and
submission to Sharia law. The condition attacks specifically Western cultures
that deny that the infection can
disable or kill, and, taking no steps to combat it, relegates it to the
symptoms of the common cold. You see, it’s just a handful of “extremist” germs
that are causing all the trouble. Islam is a contagious ideological disease
only among cultures and nations that refuse to identify it as malign and virulent.
Western nations that attempt any compromise with it are doomed to dissolution
and submission to it. And in that submission lies the wholesale negation of a
nation’s identity.
The major objector to the Charlie Hebdo cartoons as
well as to freedom of speech is the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). On
January 18th
, the OIC sanctimoniously proclaimed:
The OIC Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC)
is appalled by the recent repeated publication of sacrilegious caricature of
Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) by the French magazine Charlie Hebdo and squarely
condemns this act as an intolerant, disrespectful and manifest expression of
hatred as well as insensitivity towards the feelings of more than 1.6 billion
Muslims around the world.

Last week, the entire Muslim world, as well as this Commission, had expressed
strong profound shock and revulsion at the attack on the Charlie Hebdo office
by some errant French nationals.  
I’m betting that Obama regrets he hadn’t coined the
euphemism “errant French nationals” himself. As most Western politicians and
the mainstream media have shouted until hoarse, the attack had nothing to do
with Islam. The “errant French nationals” only thought the Koran told them to kill or enslave infidels, and also
to murder Jews. The killers obviously hadn’t taken any courses in
Post-Deconstructionist studies and performed “close readings” of the Koran. Had they underwent such
education, they might have become, instead of killers, James Joyce scholars or
teachers of “creative writing.”
While
condemning these acts, the Government of France as well as the international
community overwhelmingly stressed the fact that the attacks had nothing to do
with Islam or any other religion for that matter. However, the Commission has
noted with deep regret that the first edition of Charlie Hebdo after the
attack, deliberately carried the most disrespectful and provocative caricature
offensive to all Muslims, thus betraying the sense of abhorrence against the
attack, as well as the sympathy towards the families of those killed during the
incident. 
Tea and sympathy. Crocodile tears. Sham piety.
Muslims are very good at it. But even Arab scholars and Islamic mouthpieces,
such as OIC secretary general Iyad Ameen Madani, apparently believe that Islam
is a race, and not just a “religion” subscribed to by countless members of a
variety of ethnic groups.
Manifest
stereotyping and ridiculing the most revered personality of a pristine religion
is nothing but an extreme form of racial discrimination.
I wonder when was the last time Madani visited
Indonesia, the country with the largest population of Muslims. I think he knows
full well that Islam is not a “race.” The racism charge I suspect is a
boilerplate device that can handle anything the OIC has overlooked. There must
be a secret Islamic text I’ve not yet discovered, called How to Talk From Both Sides of One’s Mouth: Successful Examples of
Taqiyya and Islamic Dissimilation From the Pros.
Its popular title is
probably Taqiyya For Dummies.
And one can only gawk at the characterization of
Islam as a “pristine religion.” Not with knowledge of all the blood on its
hands, blood it has shed over fourteen centuries.
On January 20th, The
Clarion Project
reported on just how Islam is committed to freedom of speech
about a January 17th “funny and well-funded conference” about how to combat
Islamophobia. .
Less
than two weeks after the massacre of French journalists for insulting Mohammed,
the founder of Islam, American Islamists held a conference last Saturday
 titled, “Stand
With the Prophet in Honor and Respect
.”
Only
selected press was allowed into the event and only for the first 20 minutes.
The
conference was billed as a fundraiser to establish a “Strategic Communication
Center” to combat “Islamophobia”
and train young Muslims in media relations.
Islam has no “honor” to defend and has earned not
“respect” but fear and loathing. The young Muslims will purportedly be
introduced to the art of fabricating and disseminating funny complaints.
If the West is ever going to see a cessation of Islam’s
murderous onslaught, then the chief funders and instigators of that onslaught
must be taken out: Saudi Arabia and Iran.

    I find it difficult to hold any hope for our success in the war against Islamists when we are losing or have lost the war against our internal enemies, the Statist/Leftist/Socialist/Collectivists. Obama is the very manifestation of that losing/lost battle, and demonstrates every day how his gang/supporters prevent us from being able to defend ourselves against external threats. They're destroying us all, in so many more ways than one, and I am beginning to wonder at what point it will be appropriate for me or others to literally fight back in order to stop them.
