Mein Koran: New cartoons in honor of Wilders’ ‘Quran Film’

by Billy Rojas

Worldwide Muslim reaction is now building against Dutch politician Geert Wilders’ movie, “Fitna,” which was released on March 27, 2008. Approximately 1,200,000 people saw the film in the first 24 hours via Internet, originally on one site but now spread to numerous sites of may descriptions.
There have been protest demonstrations, under control so far, in a half dozen Muslim countries, but with more planned, including protests scheduled in various European nations. Whether larger or smaller in extent than the massive protests about the cartoons in a Danish newspaper ( and also published in France ) approximately a year ago, we can expect yet another onrush of hysteria about perceived insults to Islam on the part of tens of millions of Muslims in the days ahead.

All of which disgusts me completely. I am a scholar of religion and have serious knowledge of many of the religions of the world and have sincere respect for most faiths of mankind, and friends who are Hindus and Buddhists and Christians and Jews, and more, but the issue of Islam is an altogether different subject.

No religion on Earth is as intolerant, bigoted, and irrational. Islam, when all is said, is a form of proto-Fascism that is the enemy of all men and women of good will.

To express my outrage at both Islam and at its deluded defenders, and since I also am a graphic artist, two cartoons of my creation are now being made available to anyone who wants to use them as a means to criticize Islam, a sick religion that deserves ridicule more than anything else since it is nothing but a system of self-righteous anti-democratic puritanism that is fundamentally opposed to free speech.

Followers of this so-called “religion of peace” will, it seems certain, call for the deaths of anyone who runs these cartoons, be advised of that, and they assuredly will call for the death of the artist, but all such reaction will prove the point of the cartoons and of my other criticisms, and the criticisms of many other well informed people.

There is only one request to make from anyone who uses the cartoons. It would be wrong to associate the art with swastikas in an attempt to reinforce the message that Islam is Fascist in character. The symbol is sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists, as well as Jains, Bahai’s, and many others, traditions that have nothing at all to do with the Nazis, and we should not perpetuate misleading stereotypes.

Sincerely

Hate Speech

I always wondered, would I be able to get away in this day an age in repeating the Koran but subtituting the word unbelievers for Muslims. I soon found out that only Muslims are allowed to call on the murder of unbelievers as it is apparantly politically incorrect for anyone else to mirror this.

This is a great video including a few of those examples.

A Tale of Two Peoples: Palestine and Tibet

The long-suffering Tibetans have been in the news. This happens perhaps once or twice a decade. In a more moral world, however, public opinion would be far more preoccupied with Tibetans than with Palestinians, would be as harsh on China as it is on Israel, and would be as fawning on Israel as it now is on China.

But, alas, the world is, as it has always been, a largely mean-spirited and morally insensitive place, where might is far more highly regarded than right.

Consider the facts: Tibet, at least 1,400 years old, is one of the world’s oldest nations, has its own language, its own religion and even its own ethnicity. Over 1 million of its people have been killed by the Chinese, its culture has been systematically obliterated, 6,000 of its 6,200 monasteries have been looted and destroyed, and most of its monks have been tortured, murdered or exiled.

Palestinians have none of these characteristics. There has never been a Palestinian country, never been a Palestinian language, never been a Palestinian ethnicity, never been a Palestinian religion in any way distinct from Islam elsewhere. Indeed, “Palestinian” had always meant any individual living in the geographic area called Palestine. For most of the first half of the 20th century, “Palestinian” and “Palestine” almost always referred to the Jews of Palestine. The United Jewish Appeal, the worldwide Jewish charity that provided the nascent Jewish state with much of its money, was actually known as the United Palestine Appeal. Compared to Tibetans, few Palestinians have been killed, its culture has not been destroyed nor its mosques looted or plundered, and Palestinians have received billions of dollars from the international community. Unlike the dying Tibetan nation, there are far more Palestinians today than when Israel was created.

None of this means that a distinct Palestinian national identity does not now exist. Since Israel’s creation such an identity has arisen and does indeed exist. Nor does any of this deny that many Palestinians suffered as a result of the creation of the third Jewish state in the area, known — since the Romans renamed Judea — as “Palestine.”

Saudi Arabia: No churches unless prophet Mohammed recognised, says expert

Riyadh, 20 March (AKI) – No churches should be permitted in Saudi Arabia, unless Pope Benedict XVI recognised the prophet Mohammed, according to a Middle East expert.

While Saudi mediators are working with the Vatican on negotiations to allow places of religious worship, some experts believe it will not occur without this recognition.

Anwar Ashiqi, president of the Saudi centre for Middle East strategic studies, endorsed this view in an interview on the site of Arab satellite TV network, al-Arabiya on Thursday.

“I haven taken part in several meetings related to Islamic-Christian dialogue and there have been negotiations on this issue,” he said.

“It would be possible to launch official negotiations to construct a church in Saudi Arabia only after the Pope and all the Christian churches recognise the prophet Mohammed.”

“If they don’t recognise him as a prophet, how can we have a church in the Saudi kingdom?”

Ashiqi’s comments came after a declaration launched by the papal nuncio of the Persian Gulf, the archbishop Mounged El-Hachem, at the opening of the first Catholic church in Qatar last week.

The prelate had announced the launch of “treaties to construct a church in Saudi Arabia where it is banned to practise whatever religion they want outside Islam”.

El-Hachem estimated three to four million Christians in the Saudi kingdom who want to have a church.

A member of Saudi Arabia’s Consultative Council, Abdelaziz al-Thinani, rejected the prelate’s claims saying that there were no Christians among the Saudis who were all Muslims.

“Those few Christians do not reside in the country permanently, they come and go,” he said.

He denied there were four million Christians in the kingdom and said the issue of human rights should not be used to call for the construction of a Christian church.

Most of Saudi Arabia’s Christians are foreign workers. There are 8.2 million foreign workers in a country of 25.6 million people according to a report by the Saudi Labour Ministry.

This scenario is shocking. Do Islamists really expect Christians to accept Muhammad as a prophet of God?
Muhammad ordered aggression and war against the Christians, he contradicted the beliefs of the Christians and he was NOT a Christian in any shape or form.

Maybe the West should play by these rules. Shut down all mosques and only allow them to run if Islam accepts Jesus Christ as the Son of God, Saviour of man kind and God in the flesh. Sounds like a plan?

Imagine the reaction of the Christian Church even mentioning that?
