You read it before. Now Savage put it on the air. But make no mistake, under the UN-OIC proposed new laws against blaspheming Islam Savage is a threatened species just like the owners of this website, Jihad Watch and many more who tell the truth:
Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property (either as a child, a wife, or a concubine) must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science (the science against which it had vainly struggled) the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the Â civilisation of ancient Rome.”
The Dying of the Light [Mark Steyn]
Free speech continues to shrivel remorselessly week by week. Of the disgusting U.N. “Human Rights” Council resolution, the Globe & Mail writes:
The UN resolution has no legal force, but its symbolism is disturbing. Any Islamic government that legislates against an “insult to Islam,” which can cover nearly anything, has just been given a pat on the back. Anyone anywhere who finds something objectionable â€“ a depiction of the Prophet Mohammed in an editorial cartoon in Denmark, or a novel set in India, or a mention of the Prophet Mohammed in connection with a beauty pageant in Nigeria â€“ has been handed a moral justification for protest. This, in a world in which such protests have often taken deadly forms.
Almost right. It gives “a pat on the back” not just to authoritarian Islamic states (and Muslim nations are among the most oppressive in the world) but also to all those politically correct enforcers in the west, including American campuses, the DutchÂ prosecutors charging Geert Wilders, the Canadian “human rights” commissions, and an ever more coercive British thought regime whose latest genius wheeze is banning “anti-gay” jokes.
Then there is this unforgettable depiction of Arab Muslims here:
Jihad Watch Board Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald recalls an apposite quote by A. Carlebach and its use by the deceased and egregious Christian dhimmi and Islamic apologist Edward Said:
These Arab Islamic countries do not suffer from poverty, or disease, or illiteracy, or exploitation; they only suffer from the worst of all plagues: Islam. Wherever Islamic psychology rules, there is the inevitable rule of despotism and criminal aggression. The danger lies in Islamic psychology, which cannot integrate itself into the world of efficiency and progress, that lives in a world of illusion, perturbed by attacks of inferiority complexes and megalomania, lost in dreams of the holy sword. The danger stems from the totalitarian conception of the world, the passion for murder deeply rooted in their blood, from the lack of logic, the easily inflamed brains, the boasting, and above all: the blasphemous disregard for all that is sacred to the civilized world…their reactions — to anything — have nothing to do with good sense. They are all emotion, unbalanced, instantaneous, senseless. It is always the lunatic that speaks from their throat. You can talk ‘business’ with everyone, and even with the devil. But not with Allah…This is what every grain in this country shouts. There were many great cultures here, and invaders of all kinds. All of them — even the Crusaders — left signs of culture and blossoming. But on the path of Islam, even the trees have died. Read the whole thing
