Norway’s “Boycott” of Pro-Israel Speakers
Posted ByÂ Alan M. DershowitzÂ On April 1, 2011 (this is not an April joke!) InÂ Daily Mailer,FrontPage
Â “Judenrein” Norway
I recently completed a “speaking tour” of Norwegian Universities on the topic of “international law as applied to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”Â The sponsors of the tourâ€”a Norwegian pro-Israel groupâ€”offered to have me lecture without any charge to the three major universities in Bergen, Oslo and Trondheim.Â Norwegian universities, especially those outside of Oslo, tend to feel somewhat isolated from the more mainstream academic world, and they generally jump at any opportunity to invite lecturers from leading universities.Â Thus, when Professor Stephen Walt, co-author ofÂ The Israel Lobbyâ€”a much maligned critique of American support for Israelâ€”came to Norway, he was immediately invited to present a lecture.Â Likewise, with Ilan Pappeâ€”a strident demonizer of Israelâ€”from Oxford. Â Many professors from less well-known universities have also been invited to present their anti-Israel perspectives.
How about we make Musel-females chose to wear a cross or a star of David when they work in the west? (Ah, I forgot, most of them are on the dole or busy breeding more little hijab girls. No need to chose; allah decided for them….)
Remember: when in Muslim countries, you must abide by Muslim practices. And when in non-Muslim countries, you must abide by Muslim practices. Obama has said that he will defend the right of Muslim women in the U.S. to wear the hijab, as if anyone is denying it — but he will say nothing about this. Islamic supremacism from modern, moderate Jordan: “Jordan Bank Fires Christian Woman Who Eschewed Hijab,” by Gabe Kahn forÂ Israel National News, May 23 (thanks toÂ Voice of the Copts):
What kind of “leaders” would those be? What kind of nation can afford to have “fearful leaders” in these trying times?
Leaders fear for Netherlands’ image as anti-Islam populist turns kingmaker
Ian Trainor, from The Guardian (of Muslims) fears along with these ‘fearful leaders’Â and sprays bile and venom at Wilders, in typical wanker fashion:
Geert Wilders’s plans to joins New York protests against Ground Zero mosque prompt confidential memo to diplomats
The Dutch government has launched a damage-limitation campaign to try to counter what it fears is the disastrous international impact of the Islam-bashing populist Geert Wilders.
Wilders, whose success in June’s general election catapulted him into the role of kingmaker in attempts to form a new coalition government, is to travel toÂ New York to take part in protests on 11 September against the proposed Muslim community centre near Ground Zero.
Maxime Verhagen, the acting foreign minister and Christian Democrats’ leader, has voiced fears that Wilders’s speech in New York will tarnish Dutch reputations. He has also taken the unusual step of circulating confidential orders to Dutch diplomats around the world on how to answer questions about Wilders’s influence in a new government and on the fallout for Muslims in theÂ Netherlands.
With characteristic robustness, Wilders has told Verhagen to mind his own business. He clearly intends to grab attention with a tub-thumping exercise in Islamophobia in New York.
“Good feeling. Important speech. No one will stop me. No mosque at Ground Zero,” he tweeted after booking a flight to New York. “Stop Islam, defend freedom” is his rallying cry.
That’s exactly why the intellectually superior editors of the Guardian instantly delete all opposing views in the comments. Its all for ‘the greater good,’ really. Its all about being ‘fair & balanced’, no s#*t!
People tell me that once upon a time the Guardian was known as a respectable newspaper. Nowadays it has become a nest for assorted Commies, radical Greens, terrorists, anarcho-progressives, all kinds of anti-Semites, Â Arab parasites, leeches who feed of them, Â conspiracy theorists, Â Jihadists, Â and other kinds of loons. The crazier, the better.
At the very least, if you are not a Â hate-preaching Â mufti or a one-legged lesbian Â with a glass eye who hates the world, or, at the very least an African or South American revolutionary, Â you haven’t got the Â chance of a snowflake in hell Â to get published.
This week, the Grunard Â has really come out and combined forces to attack the true enemies of progressive society: Pamela Geller & Robert Spencer, who are to be burned at the stakes for stirring the pot against the Islamization of America and the Ground Zero mega mosque. Imam Rauf’s Â 100 million dollar victory monument is salt Â in the wound of all Americans, but for the giggling, enlightened progressives at the Grunard opposing the mosque is far worse. Why? Â Because appeasement works so well, and since Muslims are doing so much to culturally enrich us Â every day, we need to make things easier on them, right?
From the comments, the kind of people who read the Grunard:
Two tenants of American politics, the right to bear arms and freedom of speech, two of the most divisive and repugnant tenants anywhere in the world. Unfortunately protecting people from incitement to racial hatred and people with guns is less important than energy harvesting and the capitalist dream.
Heaven help us! I hear North Korea is beautiful this time of year, off you go!
Women donning the full veil are not against modernity but represent rather its sophisticated product, just like westernised Buddhists. The veil, Âsurprising as this may seem, is good news for modern values. Some smart young women keep a niqab in their bag but only wear it in Paris’s Rue Jean-Pierre Timbaud, in order to draw attention to the fact that they belong to the best Muslim set, that they really have got that Muslim chic, something like the equivalent behaviour in a gay district. This deep western social movement is no threat to modern values, but rather vindicates the latter under unexpected aesthetic guise: it is so Âindividualistic and depoliticised that it is more of a real threat for Islamism and terrorist networks themselves.
It is a massive blunder to fight this new, ultra-modern Islam. And it is not only France that is heading towards a colossal error of understanding â€“ Âpolitically capable of spinning into historic proportions â€“ but also Europe, the United States, and all the other post-industrial countries, blinkered by Islamophobia, who turn out to be incapable of catching up on their own deep cultural changes and recognising their own best interests. It is a kind of collective, generational jet lag. Â Read it all>>
Bassam Tibi writes in “War and Peace in Islam”:Â Â
At its core, Islam is a religious mission to all humanity. Muslims are religiously obliged to disseminate the Islamic faith throughout the world. “We have sent you forth to all mankind” (Q. 34:28). If non-Muslims submit to conversion or subjugation, this call (da’awa) can be pursued peacefully. If they do not, Muslims are obliged to wage war against them. In Islam, peace requires that non-Muslims submit to the call of Islam, either by converting or by accepting the status of a religious minority (dhimmi) and paying the imposed poll tax, jizya. World peace, the final stage of the da’awa, is reached only with the conversion or submission of all mankind to IslamMuslims believe that expansion through war is not aggression but a fulfillment of the Quranic command to spread Islam as a way to peace.

Last week, theÂ IndependentÂ led with the story of how MI5 agents are harassing young British Muslims and bullying them into becoming informants. Although I’m sure these cold-war tactics have shocked many, it came as no shock to me.
The tragic events of 7/7 marked a key turning point for the Muslim youth in the UK. Before 7/7, the word terrorist or extremist conjured up images of a middle-aged, big-bearded radical preacher given asylum or residence in the UK, preying on the ignorance of young people â€“ exploiting legitimate grievances (?)Â to recruit them to some seemingly noble cause. One that involves damning and bringing down western democracy â€“ the very same democracy that facilitates his right to attack it and the very same country whose benefit system he (typically) feeds off. However, the perpetrators of 7/7 did not fit this stereotype. They were young, British-born Muslims. They were people like us.(Absolutely not.All Muslims, like all dogs, share certain characteristics, and their characteristica are the Â exact opposite to us/ed)

Death for apostasy?
AC Grayling and the Council of Ex-Muslims are distorting the picture and undermining efforts to bring change
Reading AC Grayling’sÂ latest articleÂ and listening to the protestations of theÂ Council of Ex-Muslims, you would think that the death penalty is being gratuitously and frequently applied to those who renounce Islam or harbour thoughts of apostasy.

“Can this holy text transcend time and culture?” asks this morning’sGuardian. The paper has finished “blogging the Qur’an“, as it spells it, and the answer to the question seems to be a resounding YES! (with a few politically correct reservations, but voiced ever so sensitively).
Guardian writers argue the Koran is often misunderstood
Since December, Left-wing Muslim maverick Ziauddin Sardar has been working through the verses of the Koran, discovering untold riches and, would you believe it, that the holy book’s injunctions to kill unbelievers have been much misunderstood.Â Here is his interpretationÂ of the infamous “Sword Verse”, whose reference to slayingÂ the enemy wherever you find him is, he exclusively reveals,Â oftenÂ taken out of context.
