Affirmative Action Contest

Miss United States 2010 Title Winner Rima Fakih, 23-year-old controversy video leaked online. Rima Fakih Pole Dancing Video Tape is most buzzed news on the Internet. The Miss USA pageant Beauty Queen is a former “Stripper 101” Champion Pole Dancer claimed by TMZ.

In 2007, Rima Fakih won a stripper contest for local Detroit radio morning show Mojo in the Morning. She earned some fabulous prizes for the victory, which included “jewelry, gift cards, adult toys and a stripper pole for home use.” According to TMZ Source. She won the Miss Michigan USA pageant on September 19, 2009, and the Miss USA pageant on May 16, 2010. Fakih’s family is Shiite Muslim, but they celebrate both Shiite Muslim and Christian festivals.  Monkey Dollars

Affirmative Action in Beauty Contests?

Daniel Pipes takes a closer look and smells a rat:

News that Rima Fakih, 24, of Dearborn, Michigan, won the Miss USA beauty pageant today prompts me to recall some prior instances of Muslim women winning beauty contests in Western countries.  They are all attractive, but this surprising frequency of Muslims winning beauty pageants makes me suspect an odd form of affirmative action.

More from Daniel Pipes, who stands accused of  “ignorance surrounding her multicultural heritage.”

Why Would Anyone Want to Blow Up Times Square?

Desperately wishing Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Islam:

Daniel Pipes

Daniel Pipes:  You can’t win a war if you don’t have the courage to name the enemy.

When news comes of Muslims engaging in violence, the triad of politicians, law enforcement, and media invariably presumes that the perpetrator suffers from some mental or emotional incapacity. (For a quick listing of examples, see my collection at “Sudden Jihad or ‘Inordinate Stress’ at Ft. Hood?“).

Instead, I argue, they should begin with a presumption of jihadi intent. That is, the default expectation should be ideological passion, not insanity. Spreading Islam and applying Islamic law are the goals. Of course, some crazy Muslims exist and they do engage in violence, but they constitute a microscopic percentage of the 15,247 Muslim terrorist incidents since 9/11, as counted bywww.thereligionofpeace.com.

The failed effort to blow up an SUV in New York’s Times Square prompted speculation about the would-be bomber’s motives even before the identity of Faisal Shahzad, an immigrant from Pakistan, had been made public. The Nation‘s Robert Dreyfuss discounted the possibility of a jihadi from the Pakistan-based Taliban, “it seems far more likely to me [he] was either a lone nut job or a member of some squirrely branch of the Tea Party, anti-government far right.”

Then, just hours after Shahzad had been arrested, authorities rushed to assure the public his action had nothing to do with Islam. Examples from May 4:

Tarek Fatah Calls Wafa Sultan an ‘Islamophobe’

Tarek Fatah attended that Daniel Pipes/Wafa Sultan debate at a Toronto synagogue, and was horrified by Sultan’s words:

Read it here on Scaramouche

The rebuttal is here, in the National Post:

Counterpoint: In defence of Wafa Sultan

By Joanne Hill

Tarek Fatah has used the National Post to present a one-sided, inaccurate and potentially dangerous editorial about statements made by Dr. Wafa Sultan during her March 3rd debate in Toronto with Dr. Daniel Pipes.

Mr. Fatah’s article is not an unbiased report:  it is an opinion piece full of loaded terms such as slur, attack, hateful, anguish, Islam haters and vitriol.  He misquotes Dr. Sultan and presents as fact a conclusion that is not supported by any of her statements:  a conclusion that I believe puts her life in danger.

I am a freelance reporter; I covered the debate between Dr. Pipes and Dr. Sultan for the Jewish Tribune. I have an audio recording of the entire event, including the Question and Answer period, so I can state with complete accuracy what was and was not said by Dr. Sultan.

Wafa Sultan would not have any of that. “There is no moderate Islam,” she wagged her finger at Pipes. There was only one Islam, she claimed– the Islam of rape, murder and hate.

To his credit — and this will surprise many of his Muslim naysayers —Daniel Pipes reminded his Jewish audience that Islam was not the bogeyman it has been made out to be. “Remember, for over 1,000 years, whenever Jews needed a place for sanctuary, they got it in Muslim lands … The problem is not Islam, it is Islamism,” he told them. Not. There is no “Islamism”. There is only Islam…..

Allow me to address this point:

This is BS, doctor Pipes. I’ll tell you why: The Myth of Islamic Asylum Generosity is just a myth:

Yusuf Ali

9:6:Quran- translation If one amongst the Pagans ask thee for asylum, grant it to him, so that he may hear the word of Allah. and then escort him to where he can be secure. That is because they are men without knowledge.

Got it? Give the Pagan asylum to hear the word of Allah. If he doesn’t accept Islam, make him pay the jiziya. And if he doesn’t pay the jiziya, fight him, kill him, take booty, rape his wife and sell his children into slavery….. that’s the reason why there are no Jews left in the dar-ul Islam….

No. Thanks,  but no thanks.

Love Jihad and other Strange Sex Stories from the Muslim World

The deepest differences between Muslims and Westerners concern not politics but sexuality. Each side has a long history of looking at the other’s sexual mores with a mixture of astonishment and disgust. Here are some examples of customs and social attitudes from the Muslim side of the divide (in reverse chronological order) that have me, for one, shaking my head: Daniel Pipes has more>>

Rape ‘harmless fun’ says lawyer:

THE alleged abduction and gang rape of a woman was dismissed as harmless fun by a female defence lawyer in a Bahrain trial yesterday.  Three men accused of the attack should be acquitted because young people often commit crimes for “fun”, without criminal intent, said lawyer Fatima Al Hawaj.   More

Kerala High Court tells Central and State to probe Love Jihads

Oct,2009: The kerala High Court has directed the Central and State governments to inquire into ‘Love Jihad’ or ‘Romeo Jihad’, a campaign propagated by Muslim organisations to convert girls into Islam under the pretext of love. The report has to be filed within three weeks.

“Teenager” accused of raping woman

Islam had taken the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, to a “dirty and smelly” flat above a snooker hall in Birch Lane, West Bowling, Bradford, before locking the door behind them, prosecutor Simon Phillips said.  “This was to be the beginning of a lengthy ordeal lasting about nine hours, during which, he detained her in that flat. He threatened her and raped her,” he said. Telegraph

“Love Jihad” against Hindu girls in India, nearly 3000 missing

Jihadi Romeos promise to marry unsuspecting young girls within 6 months if they convert to Islam and take and dump these girls in the conversion centers. These Romeos then go for their next prey. These girls are subject to various tortures for weeks in these conversion centers. There is information that these girls are shipped to foreign countries after drugging them. They are shipped from the unmanned coasts of Kochi, Kozhikode, etc., to Mangalore, Goa, Chennai, Lakshadweep, from where they are taken abroad. They are taken to the Gulf countries under the false pretence of a job and forced into prostitution once they reach there.

It was found in investigations that many of the muslim girls found in police raids in the red light areas in Kochi and Kozhikode were actually Hindu-Christian girls who had converted to Islam in places like Mangalore and Bangalore.

The statistics of the Jihadi conversions in Kerala since 2006 are shocking. The number of those converted in this way was 2876. Cases were registered in only 705 of such incidents. Kasargod tops the list of Jihadi conversions with a figure of 568. Only 123 incidents have been registered with the police. More>>

Ignored by society, Afghan dancing boys suffer centuries-old tradition

  • Young boys in Afghanistan are used as sex slaves through “bacha bazi” or “boy play”

Some time ago Pamela Geller began to take up a collection to provide honor killing victim Aqsa Parvez with a headstone — at present Aqsa lies in an unmarked grave, plot #774 in Meadowvale Cemetery in Brampton, Ontario. I joined Pamela in this effort, which was a chance to honor Aqsa personally and to show those who commit honor killings that we in the West will not acquiesce in their devaluing and destruction of these human beings, and attempt even to erase their memories.

Counting Islamists: "just don't look. Don't go there…"

* Because the ‘tiny minority of extremists’ might not be so tiny in numbers after all…

by Daniel Pipes

Jerusalem Post
October 8, 2008

The recent distribution of some 28 million copies in the United States of the 2005 documentary Obsession has stirred heated debate about its contents. One lightning rod for criticism concerns my on-screen statement that “10 to 15 percent of Muslims worldwide support militant Islam.”

 

“Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West” (2005)

The Muslim Public Affairs Council declared this estimate both “utterly unsubstantiated” and “completely without evidence.” Masoud Kheirabadi, a professor at Portland State University and author of children’s books about Islam, informed the Oregonian newspaper that there’s no basis for my estimate. Daniel Ruth, writing in the Tampa Tribune, asked dubiously how I arrived at this number. “Did he take a poll? That would be enlightening! What does ‘support’ for radical Islam mean? Pipes provides no answers.”

 

Actually, Pipes did provide answers. He collected and published many numbers at “How Many Islamists?” a weblog entry initiated in May 2005.

First, though, an explanation of what I meant by Muslims who “support militant Islam”: these are Islamists, individuals who seek a totalistic, worldwide application of Islamic law, the Shari‘a. In particular, they seek to build an Islamic state in Turkey, replace Israel with an Islamic state and the U.S. constitution with the Koran.

Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

* The latest from Gangland Chicago: Obamba deeply involved with thugs & crooks

by Daniel Pipes
Philadelphia Bulletin

With Colin Powell now repeating the lie that Barack Obama has “always been a Christian,” despite new information further confirming Obama’s Muslim childhood (such as the Indonesian school registration listing him as Muslim), one watches with dismay as the Democratic candidate manages to hide the truth on this issue.

                                 

*  Al Qaeda Supporting McCain? No, Not Really.

Instead, then, let us review a related subject – Obama’s connections and even indebtedness, throughout his career, to extremist Islam. Specifically, he has longstanding, if indirect ties to two institutions, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), listed by the U.S. government in 2007 as anunindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding trial; and the Nation of Islam (NoI), condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for its “consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism.”

First, Obama’s ties to Islamists:

DR. RICHARD L. BENKIN: AN HISTORICAL MOMENT FOR ISLAM

*  Dr. Benkin, from Scholars for Peace in the Middle East, makes some valid points, but doesn’t get it. He’s obviously never studied the Islamic doctrine of perpetual warfare and the subjugation of unbelievers and compares the Spanish inquisition with 1400 years of jihad against the world:

 

http://www.asiantribune.com/?q=node/13131

While there are several individual fights taking place across the world today, the battle between radical Islam and western-style democracy is the basis for almost all of them. I have been on the front lines of that war for several years and am more convinced than ever that it has no diplomatic or negotiated solution; that for the defenders of freedom, there is no compromise with radical Islam; period. Moreover, history is clear in predicting that ultimately, freedom will triumph.

A perfectly good thread derailed…

* A lot of confusion mixed with goodwill,  misperceptions and ignorance regarding Islam. Proudly displayed today on Andrew Bolts blog:

                   Just 150 million hardliners to worry about

Daniel Pipes checks the figures:

I suggested just three days after 9/11 that about 10 per cent to 15 per cent of Muslims are determined Islamists. Subsequent evidence generally confirmed that estimate and suggested, if anything, that the actual numbers might be higher.

Negatively, 10 per cent to 15 per cent suggests that Islamists number about 150 million out of a billion-plus Muslims, more than all the fascists and communists who ever lived.

Pipes insists there’s a silver lining:

Positively, it implies that most Muslims can be swayed against Islamist totalitarianism.

They need to be swayed? Can’t more rise up on their own and do that job? If
