1 Million Reasons to Believe Their "peaceful"

So its happened, it's similar to the days of "the Satanic Verses" when Salman Rushdie got his death warrant signed by these so called peaceful Mullah's (albeit unsuccessful). In a call today by a Pakistani "religious leader" or Mullah, a $1 million dollar bounty has now been put on the head of the author(s) of the Muhammad cartoons (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060217/ap_on_re_mi_ea/prophet_drawings). This so called religion of peace is having quite a time with these cartoons. No better way to prove to the world that you are indeed peaceful than rioting, mass violence, and paying for a hit on another human. Although I rarely agree with her politics, Ann Coulter the right wing ideologue and the female version of Rush Limbaugh, has a great article about this very subject.

"As my regular readers know, I've long been skeptical of the "Religion of Peace" moniker for Muslims – for at least 3,000 reasons right off the top of my head. I think the evidence is going my way this week. The culture editor of a newspaper in Denmark suspected writers and cartoonists were engaging in self-censorship when it came to the Religion of Peace. It was subtle things, like a Danish comedian's statement, paraphrased by the New York Times, "that he had no problem urinating on the Bible but that he would not dare do the same to the Quran." So, after verifying that his life insurance premiums were paid up, the editor expressly requested cartoons of Muhammad from every cartoonist with a Danish cartoon syndicate. Out of 40 cartoonists, only 10 accepted the invitation, most of them submitting utterly neutral drawings with no political content whatsoever. But three cartoons made political points. One showed Muhammad turning away suicide bombers from the gates of heaven, saying "Stop, stop – we ran out of virgins!" – which I believe was a commentary on Muslims' predilection for violence. Another was a cartoon of Muhammad with horns, which I believe was a commentary on Muslims' predilection for violence. The third showed Muhammad with a turban in the shape of a bomb, which I believe was an expression of post-industrial ennui in a secular – oops, no, wait: It was more of a commentary on Muslims' predilection for violence. In order to express their displeasure with the idea that Muslims are violent, thousands of Muslims around the world engaged in rioting, arson, mob savagery, flag-burning, murder and mayhem, among other peaceful acts of nonviolence. Muslims are the only people who make feminists seem laid-back. The little darlings brandish placards with typical Religion of Peace slogans, such as: "Behead Those Who Insult Islam," "Europe, you will pay, extermination is on the way" and "Butcher those who mock Islam." They warn Europe of their own impending 9-11 with signs that say: "Europe: Your 9/11 will come" – which is ironic, because they almost had me convinced the Jews were behind the 9-11 attack.
The rioting Muslims claim they are upset because Islam prohibits any depictions of Muhammad – though the text is ambiguous on beheadings, suicide bombings and flying planes into skyscrapers. The belief that Islam forbids portrayals of Muhammad is recently acquired. Back when Muslims created things, rather than blowing them up, they made paintings, frescoes, miniatures and prints of Muhammad. But apparently the Quran is like the Constitution: It's a "living document," capable of sprouting all-new provisions at will. Muslims ought to start claiming the Quran also prohibits indoor plumbing, to explain their lack of it. Other interpretations of the Quran forbid images of humans or animals, which makes even a child's coloring book blasphemous. That's why the Taliban blew up those priceless Buddhist statues, bless their innocent, peace-loving little hearts. Largely unnoticed in this spectacle is the blinding fact that one nation is missing from the long list of Muslim countries (by which I mean France and England) with hundreds of crazy Muslims experiencing bipolar rage over some cartoons: Iraq. Hey – maybe this democracy thing does work! The barbaric behavior of Europe's Muslims suggests that the European welfare state may not be attracting your top-notch Muslims. Making the rash assumption for purposes of discussion that Islam is a religion and not a car-burning cult, even a real religion can't go bossing around other people like this. Catholics aren't short on rules, but they couldn't care less if non-Catholics use birth control. Conservative Jews have no interest in forbidding other people from mixing meat and dairy. Protestants don't make a peep about other people eating food off one another's plates. (Just stay away from our plates – that's disgusting.) But Muslims think they can issue decrees about what images can appear in newspaper cartoons. Who do they think they are, liberals?"


I think this article is poinent and to the point. Sure there are some that say "you can't brush all of Islam violent". I say OK, then show me a Ummah in the Middle East that's denouncing these vial acts of peace? Can you? Hell no, because first there are none and secondly if there were that individual would be branded a trader to the faith and risk being peacefully beheaded. Sure we can find Muslims in America or Europe that say these acts are not in accordance with Islam and this may in fact be true (which i hope for, since actually branding all of Islam as violent, brings about enormous problems in terms of how we deal with it) but where are the "moderate" Muslims in the Middle East calling for restraint? Are the leaders of Islam calling mass violence appalling? How about the Mullah's calling for dialogue instead of Molotov-cocktails? Do we see any of this?certainly I haven't and I have looked hard. In stead of calling these acts vial, Mullah's in Iran have gotten around to issuing a Fatwa stating that according to the peaceful teachings of the Koran, It is NOT against Islamic law to use nuclear weapons as long as they are used for a "good Reason" (http://memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD109606). This right here screams peace! I don't believe all of Islam is evil. I do how ever believe that all of Islam is culpable in the fact the violence is not vehemently denounced. I do however hold Islam accountable for the culture of violence in today's Middle East. I do however feel Islam needs real leaders before its to late. Terrorists of the past while pernicious, fought for nationalism, or regime change. The Islamic radicals of today fight for fightings sake. They fight because they want a global Caliphate. This religion of peace needs to prove itself to the world. Stop these insane, elementary protests over a damn cartoon. Start cleaning up your backyard, because if you don't the world itself may be forced to. If these Islamic radicals get their hands on any type of WMD, they will use it, and then God forbid, Hell hath no fury. The gloves will come off.

I watched a pathetic extremely opinionated/ no fact giving show which highlated this idiots views
www.helencaldicott.com
liberal women will love her, but she had no fact to base her far-fetched 'speculations' on. ("Caldicott claimed that the Hershey Foods Corporation produced chocolate carrying strontium 90 because of the proximity of the Three Mile Island disaster to Hershey's Philadelphia factory.")

I wanted to see what you think about nuclear disarmament for every nation. This "Dr." seems to think that the U.S. especially (and the Soviet Union somewhat) are the true "evil doers" and will, as she stated on the show 'Deadly Arrogance, Nuclear Nightmare', will see the same fate Japan & Germany saw when they believed they were the rightful rulers of this world.
I cannot believe how pathetic this womans views are, and that she is able to persuade anyone.
Let me know what you think!

Heres a nice piece showing the ridiculous nature of caldicotts feminism:
http://www.glennsacks.com/dr_helen_caldecott.htm

Heres a sample:
Caldicott also told the audience that the "killing reflex" came to be "located in the human (male's) brain" back when the "world was hostile" and "full of saber-tooth tigers, mammoth elephants and roaring tribes. While women sat in caves breastfeeding and nurturing their young, the males quickly learned to protect their genes by aggression and killing."


I cannot even imagine anyone listining to this extremist.
If I was a cartoonist, I'd draw a picture of caldicott with a bomb laden turban on HER head!!!!

As for nuclear disarmament, and this so called "Dr.", i don't think she lives in reality. Wouldn't it be nice and fuzzy and warm if the world would just get along? A global scourge of nuclear weapons while makes her feel good and "enlightened" is not feasible nor needed. Does America or Russia release Fatwa's stating in their religious creed, its OK to use said weapons as long as they are used for a "good reason"? No! This is a prime example of morons today blaming America for the worlds ills. She could never point a negative finger at the poor Muslims, that would be mean, it would not be in the spirit of understanding. No, instead its much easier to blame us than actually have to make a moral judgement against radical islamists. This "Dr." is just the antithesis of what needs to be done.
