* Same BS continues under Sarkozy.
But not to worry: Fwance has new laws that prohibit filming or photo-shoots of riots by citizens journalists, because that would………….????? do what exactly…?
* The French Constitutional Council has approved a law that criminalizes the filming or broadcasting of acts of violence by people other than professional journalists. The law could lead to the imprisonment of eyewitnesses who film acts of police violence, or operators of Web sites publishing the images.
Saint-Dizier, France – French police clashed overnight with youths who went on a rampage in a town in eastern France, prompting Interior Minister Michele Alliot-Marie to travel to the trouble spot.
Between 40 and 50 masked youths used metal bars to smash a firefighters’ vehicle and a police car dispatched to a shopping mall in Saint-Dizier, said Yves Guillot, the head of the Haute-Marne regional government.
The youths then fanned out across the town of 30 000 inhabitants, setting fire to two buildings, a car rental office and 16 vehicles. Police reinforcements were sent in to quell the violence.
“We are trying to understand what happened. We have had clashes in our town but not on this scale,” said Mayor Francois Cornut-Gentille.
The French Frog: Slowly boiling…
* Cowardly scumbags cave in:
Dutch prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende has told Ayaan Hirsi Ali to get out of the Netherlands, and stay out: Klein Verzet: Prime Minister: Hirsi Ali should leave the country!
* Balkenende: Why does he look like a clone of peanut Khadr?
Today Dutch prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende has Dutch citizen Ayaan Hirsi Ali advised to leave the country and go back to the United States. He said that she shouldn’t come back to The Netherlands for protection. She has long enough known that the Dutch government wanted to stop her protection. Earlier Dutch justice minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin wrote Ayaan Hirsi Ali that she is safe and does not need protection.
* What kind of a democracy do you have when thugs threaten somebody and that person is punished, but the crims are not? The moral bankruptcy of the Dutch ruling classes is painful to watch.
“Asshole of the month”: Jan Peter Balkenende
Thanks to Shiva
For quite a while now we haven’t bestowed this prestigious award on any of the polit-props, dhimmi’s, cowards, appeasers and wankers who kowtow to the Muhammedan invaders and sell out their local constituents.
For what he is doing to Ayaan Ali Hirsi and for the following statement which confirms that he is a clueless f*kcwit of the first degree, Jan Peter Balkenende hereby is officially named
THE HAGUE, 06/10/07 – The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the common source of inspiration for the western and Islamic community, suggested Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende at a Ramadan meal (Iftar) with the ambassadors from countries with substantial Muslim populations. This had been organised by the ambassadors of Malaysia and Saudi Arabia.
“Last week I was in New York for the General Assembly of the United Nations. I spoke there about our common source of inspiration: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. That document expresses the ideal that should unite us: a world in which all people are free to choose their religion and express their opinions. A world without fear and without poverty. We share the responsibility for bringing that ideal closer to fulfilment, step by step. At times we can call one another to account. To do so, we need to listen to one another and be prepared to act together. I am delighted that so many forms of cooperation exist between our countries.
“You know as well as I do,” Balkenende told the ambassadors, “that there are tensions in the Netherlands, which are often linked to religious differences. You also know that there are people in the Netherlands who are afraid or feel excluded. At the same time, you are aware of positive developments here. We are working hard in this country to promote mutual respect, safety and trust. This is an absolute priority for the Dutch government.”
“Diversity is greater here than in many other European countries. This makes tolerance a great challenge for our society.” At the same time, “there are responsibilities involved in living here. Respect for the core values of the rule of law is fundamental to our society. (…) Anyone who resorts to violence or spreads hatred can expect a firm response from the authorities. This is the only way for everyone in this country to feel safe and secure.”
“If a society is to flourish, it needs more than safety alone. We need an active contribution from everyone. We need good education, work placements, jobs and opportunities for people to develop their talents. This government is working to achieve these goals together with all people of goodwill in the Netherlands. I am proud of all the people – Muslims and non-Muslims – who work hard every day to make this a better country.”
“A better world depends on respect for human rights and the legal order. At the same time, we need more links among people. More dialogue. More mutual understanding. This joint Iftar is a symbol of what we are trying to achieve.”
* Muhammedans of course deride and reject the ‘Universal Declaration of Human Rights’ – as some kind of idiotic Western idea, that’s why they cooked up the ‘Cairo Declaration of Human Rights’– a totally bizarre and perverted document based on the sharia. We all know what that means, don’t we?
* Bush breaks bread with terrorists, invites them to the white house for the ‘traditional iftar dinner’- and sux more than ever. How could such an imbecile become president of the United States of America?
You can’t make this s*#t up:
“Let us celebrate the millions of Muslims that we are proud to call American citizens,” Bush told guests. “And let us honor the many Muslim nations that America is proud to call friends.”
* No wonder the Islamo-fascists are laughing their asses off:
I wasn’t going to write about Ramadan in official Washington this fall season — not again. But I just can’t resist. First, there are all the holiday trappings of this by-now annual column — such seasonal staples as my all-time favorite “war on terror” quotation from Abu Qatada, the Al Qaeda-linked cleric. I just love to trot it out around Ramadan after President Bush has said something utterly ignorant about Islam meaning peace, or, addressing the Muslim pooh bahs he always has at the White House for a fast-breaking Iftar dinner, how the jihadists have “twisted” Islam.
Abu Qatada: Representing Muslim terrorists
* Can you imagine inviting such filth to the white house?
“I am astonished by President Bush when he claims there is nothing in the Koran that justifies jihad violence in the name of Islam,” Abu Qatada said about six years ago. “Is he some kind of Islamic scholar? Has he ever actually read the Koran?”
Navy imam Chaplain Abuhena M. Saifulislam lifted his voice to
God Allah as he called to prayer more than 100 Department of Defense employees Monday at a celebration of Ramadan at the Pentagon. “God is most great,” “Allahu akbar” sang the lieutenant commander and Islamic leader, in Arabic, as iftar â€” the end of the daily fast began.
* Please note how WaPo avoids the ‘Allahu akbar’- the Islamic war cry…
Uniformed military personnel, civilians and family members faced Mecca and knelt on adorned prayer rugs chanting their prayers in quiet invocation to Allah.
“We do all we can to help meet the religious needs of our soldiers,” said Deputy Pentagon Chaplain Army Maj. Alan Pomaville, a Christian, who attended the iftar alongside the Muslim chaplains. “The leadership in the [Defense Department] wants to care for the body of the whole soldier.”
As the Pentagon celebrated Ramadan, the White House is in preparations for an iftar feast tomorrow, said Lt. Cmdr. Saifulislam, who will be participating at the White House events.
“President and Mrs. Bush host an iftar dinner every year because they want people around the world to know how much they respect Islam and the many Muslims living in the U.S. who are free to worship as they want, and are an integral part of our society,” said Gordon Johndroe, spokesman for the White House National Security Council.
* When will this fraternizing with the enemy stop? When will this insanity come to an end…?
