Fireworks burst over Sydney Harbour to ring in the New Year at midnight, kicking off noisy celebrations for billions around the world to mark the end of 2011.
It’ll be interesting to know the tally for the annual “traditional” carbeques in France:
France’s “conservative” Â government has attempted to “combat” the immigrant-origin annual New Year’s car-burning orgy by refusing to release any figures about the incidents in the hope that the lack of publicity will ‘kill’ the story.
The surrender is complete now. TheÂ HinduÂ reportsÂ that the Obama administration has turned to Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s leading jurist, to mediate secret negotiations between the United States and the Taliban.
Washingtonâ€” The U.S. House approved a $1 trillion spending bill on a 296-121 vote to fund the federal government. As part of a compromise struck late Thursday, the measure prohibits administration “czars” to oversee health care reform,Â climateÂ change, the auto industry and urban affairs. (source)
His mother was an unabashed hippie a Gramscian whore from 1960s central casting. His father was an openly avowed CommunistÂ Muslim from Kenya. While his father wasn’t around much, his devoutly progressive grandparents arranged for him to be mentored during his adolescent years by a dues paying member of the U.S. Communist Party, Frank Marshall Davis.
You might think Islam in the Silicon Valley would be extra progressive and tolerant. In this prominent case of “one of the largest Muslim communities in theÂ US,” you’d think wrong.
Remember how often our comment-box apologists tell us they’ve never heard of the books discussed below, or that we’re cherry-picking one or two titles to tar Islam with one broad brush. Is theÂ MCAÂ cherry-picking titles to give Islam a bad name? “Silicon Valley Sharia,” by Kamala atÂ WetPaint, December 27/JW:
Apple. Google. Facebook. Sharia?
Silicon Valley has become synonymous with modernity and innovation.
And naively, one might expect Islam in Silicon Valley to share the same traits: an advanced, forward-thinking interpretation.
Presumably, the Muslim Community Association (MCA) of the San Francisco Bay Area would serve as the stewards of such a perspective. Billing itself as “one of the largest Muslim communities in theÂ US,” theÂ MCAÂ proudly proclaims that its members are “well-educated, well-traveled, and earn higher than average incomes in the San Francisco Bay Area.” Even the mayor of Cupertino (Apple’s hometown) recently visited anÂ MCAÂ Open House.
Yet theÂ MCA’s own web site makes it clear that Silicon Valley Islam is anything but innovative. Their online bookstore, which features a small but revealing set of “authentic” books about Islam, yields an interpretation of Islam that is draconian and unbending: an Islam dedicated to bringing Sharia to the world.
One book, Man-Made Laws vs. Shari’ah, by Abdur-Rahmaan ibn Salih al-Mahmood, makes the case that Sharia is the only acceptable set of laws for mankind, arguing that anyone that believes otherwise is a disbeliever.
It probably comes as no surprise to Jihad Watch’s regular readers that certain countries in the Middle EastÂ continue to traffic in slavesÂ from Africa, with the authorities either indifferent or as willing accomplices. WhileÂ we’ve written on this before, there’s now a novel twist. According to a recent media report, homosexual men in Kenya are lured to certain Middle Eastern countries with the false promises of lucrative legitimate employment, only to find themselves in involuntary servitude of the worse kind–as chattel and sex slaves of rich families and individuals. Remember, in Arabic the word for ‘black’ (as in black African) and ‘slave’ is the same:Â abed.
We are told that our beliefs, culture and symbols â€“ from a cross round someone’s necks to the celebration of Christmas itself â€“ might be offensive to those who do not share our beliefs. In other words, we have to alter our behaviour because they won’t tolerate us. Our bigotry is bad. Their bigotry is enshrined in law.
This is crazy. There is a profound difference between tolerance on the one hand and cowardly appeasement on the other.
Â Three French women’s organizations have expressed concern and disappointment with world soccer body FIFA’s endorsement of a proposal to lift the ban on women players wearing a hijab, an Islamic hair dress, on the pitch.
The chairman of the central committee of Muslims warns us not to blame Islam for the mass-murders of Copts and elsewhere in Â Islam- occupied lands. Bishop Damian tells us that Islam is very much responsible for the carnage…..
Waehrend der Â Vorsitzende des Zentralrats der Muslime, Aiman Mazyek, davor warnt, denÂ Islam als AuslÃ¶ser fÃ¼r die AnschlÃ¤geÂ auf die Kirchen zu sehen, betrachtet Bischof Damian sehr wohl einen Zusammenhang und sagt: “Der Islam will die Welt beherrschen”
“Bare Naked Islam” was “one of the major promoters of the campaign to pressure Lowe‘s to drops its ads from TLC’s ‘All-American Muslim.’”
“An anti-Muslim hate blog” that contained inflammatory comments has been taken down by its hosting company after numerous complaints from the Council on American-Islamic Relations,Â PR Newswire reports.
Planting hateful and incendiary comments on anti-jihad blogs is a long-time speciality of Â Hamas lobby CAIR.
In a sane world this treacherous mob would have long been arrested and locked up in Gitmo, without Korans and ice-cream…
Well, now that we can no longer wish you Â miserable lot Â a Merry Christmasor aÂ Happy New Year, Â we may as well play your game with one of the last Â weapons that haven’t been taken from us yet: Â HUMOR!
NEW YORK â€” A group of Muslim leaders terrorists says the N.Y.P.D.’s practice of infiltrating the Muslim community with undercover cops and keeping civilians under surveillance is unfair, and to protest they plan to boycott the mayor’s annual Interfaith Breakfast.
