A Dubai-based company Conqueror Real Estate is standing by a decision to use Adolf Hitler in a national newspaper campaign in the United Arab Emirates.
The ad, which places a picture of the Nazi dictator next to the tagline “Conqueror – The world is yours”, ran in the national newspaper Gulf News and provoked a string of complaints.
But David Dakak, general manager of Conqueror Real Estate, said the ad had produced the desired effect and was part of the company’s marketing strategy to provoke a response.
Dakak said: “I’m making business, I don’t have any political opinion. He’s a famous person — bad or good, I don’t care — and I want to attract the attention of readers. And yesterday we had a lot of response. We had complaints, but it was one of the busiest days of the year too, so it has an affect.”
I’m not sure if this is a “Dubai” thing or just the case of one guy and a moral vacuum.
* Listen up, you filthy kuffars: Your masters, the Sowdi’s, will give you a rub down and teach you about Muslim rights, because nothing else matters. Just In case you didn’t get the message yet…
According to a source at HRC, the government-funded rights body will also address various human rights issues in Europe: when Muslims are unjustly interrogated, treated with disrespect, physically or mentally abused, or not allowed to practice their faith freely such as Muslim girls being prevented from wearing the hijab (head cover) in some schools.
Among topics up for discussion are “Islamaphobia” and the fear Europeans have of Muslims or Islam as a religion.
“The United States invading a number of Muslim countries was believed to have created radical behavior in the Muslim world”
That’s because you’re right. It is BS from beginning to end. It is not boredom that causes jihad, it is not poverty that causes jihad, and it is not the US ‘invading Muslim countries’- it is the jihad stupid!
In Islam, no Infidel state, whatever its dimensions, can be permitted, for that would violate the essence of Islam. Islam, said Mohammad, is “to dominate and not to be dominated.” No land once part of dar al-Islam can ever fall under Infidel control again. The land on which Israel now sits, and other lands, including the Balkans, much of south-central Europe, much of Russia, most of India, and of course Spain, were once all part of dar al-Islam, and must be returned to it. But Israel, an Infidel sovereign state run by the despised Jews, and sitting smack in the middle of dar al-Islam, is particularly disturbing.
If the Islamic basis for Arab opposition to Israel were understood, then much that confuses commentators would become clear. It is irrelevant what Israel’s borders are; if it exists, it remains an affront, an outrage, a catastrophe, the greatest injustice in the history of the world (as Arab spokesmen routinely say).
The very phrase a “final peace settlement” rings hollow to anyone familiar with the tenets of Islam. For there can never be a “final peace settlement” between Moslems and non-Moslems. The model for treaties is the agreement made between Muhammad and the Meccans in 628 A.D., the Treaty of al-Hudaibiyya. It was supposed to be a “truce” treaty that would last 10 years. It lasted scarcely 18 months, when Muhammad, feeling that his forces had grown sufficiently, breached the agreement on a pretext, and attacked the Meccans. As Majid Khaddui notes in War and Peace in Islam, this Treaty of al-Hudaibiyya became the model, and the basis, for all future “treaties” with Infidel peoples and polities.
Steyn does not fully understand the issue of demography. Islamic countries are parasitical. Even the massive population growth is only an advantage as long as Muslims are allowed to export it to infidel lands. Deprived of this opportunity, and of Western aid, the Islamic world would quickly sink into a quagmire of overpopulation. This is a long-term solution, to demonstrate to Muslims the failure of Islam.

Fatah thugs kiss the ground after running amok in Gaza
A failure in the upcoming US-sponsored Middle East peace conference would have more dangerous repercussions than the botched Camp David summit in 2000, Fatah officials warned on Tuesday.
This was the first time senior Fatah officials hinted at a possible wave of violence if the conference – expected to be held in Annapolis, Maryland, next month – did not meet the Palestinians’ demands.
“If we don’t prepare well for the conference so that it will result in something positive, the repercussions will be more dangerous than what happened after the failure of Camp David,” said Azzam al-Ahmed, head of the Fatah parliamentary list. He is closely associated with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
The Palestinians might decide to stay away from the meeting, Ahmed warned. “If the [Israeli and Palestinian] negotiators don’t reach an agreement before the conference, there will be no point in holding it,” he said. “Let’s bear in mind that invitations to the conference have not been issued yet.”

Inversion of reality: The unholy war against the Jews
In a remarkable inversion of reality, Israel has become a pariah state because of its determination to defend itself.
A grotesque double standard now operates, where murderous Arab terrorists are hailed as “freedom fighters” yet Israeli security forces are treated as fascistic thugs. No nation has been more demonized than Israel. One recent survey across Europe revealed that Israel is now regarded as “the greatest threat” to world peace, an utter absurdity given that Israel is actually the only democratic, free society in the Middle East. But such a finding reflects the strength of the hysterical anti-Israeli propaganda that fills the airwaves of Europe. No matter how much this anti-Israeli feeling is dressed up as support for Palestine, it is in fact profoundly antisemitic….
