WHAT'S WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?Lots has happened whilst I've been away, the kidnap of Gilad Shalit being one of the major stories.
Good to see our media being as fair and balanced as I've come to expect. Hat-tip to Snoopy for drawing my attention to Channel 4's Jon Snow, proving just how clueless he really is: (via Shlemazi):
Well, rockets are pretty pathetic things. Nobody gets injured, they are homemade, and you well know they have nothing much stronger than an AK-47: no RPGs, they have no weapons and you are delivering some of the most sophisticated bombardment that has ever been subjected to a defenseless people. Is it an act of terror would you say?He's not the only doofus in town.
I noticed this today, but once again got beaten to the knock-out punch by the same man:
Blooper of the week award goes to no other than Jonathan Steele for the following passage from the article "Europe's response to the siege of Gaza is shameful":Let me know the brand of bottled water Snow and Steele drink - I'm not touching it with a bargepole.Finally, Israel must renounce violence, in particular the assassinations of Palestinian leaders. The number of civilians killed in these attacks this year alone far exceeds the number of Israeli victims since Hamas declared its ceasefire last year. The facts do not support the notion that Israel is "retaliating" to provocations.To repeat: "far exceeds the number of Israeli victims since Hamas declared its ceasefire last year". How do you like that "victims of a ceasefire"? If you know how to solve this moronic quandary, your desk [at the] Guardian is waiting for you.
There is much more where it comes from, but this should be sufficient to show the true colors of Mr Steele.
Other lunacy of late includes (from the Sun of all places) the head of Al Grrr!abaa, Anjem Choudhury losing his rag over 7/7:
Choudary, 38, right-hand man of exiled hate preacher Omar Bakri, repeatedly refused to condemn the 7/7 bombers at a press conference on the eve of the anniversary of the London blasts.For those not up to date with one of the grimmest Muslim sects around, a visit to their website might not be a bad plan.
But when asked if he would inform the police of another suicide mission he said in Walthamstow, East London: “No I wouldn’t. I don’t think Muslims can co-operate with police.”
Then Choudary warned Britain faced CIVIL WAR with its 1.6million-strong Muslim community.
He said: “We are reaching a situation where the Muslim community is increasingly under siege.
“I’m afraid of a Bosnia or Kosovo-style reality here in Great Britain.”
Choudary’s rant came a day after he was fined for organising protests over cartoons about the prophet Mohammed.
From the letters page we learn:
The 'stories' of plunder and killing in Darfur are exaggerations and propaganda of extraordinary proportions, there is far more occurring on the doorsteps of the Americans and Europe than the Americans claim, second of all these 'stories' have been narrated by Kuffar who Allah declared that they are liars, moreover, they have come from the sections of the Kuffar (i.e. the media) who are known liars and fabricators even among their own people! So why should we believe accusations about any Muslims? Allah (swt) says,This courtesy of the same team who describe Jabron Hashmi as an apostate traitor to Islam and professional terrorist.
“When there comes to them some matter touching (Public) safety or fear, they divulge it. If they had only referred it to the Messenger, or to those charged with authority among them, the proper investigators would have Tested it from them (direct). Were it not for the Grace and Mercy of Allah unto you, all but a few of you would have fallen into the clutches of Satan.” [EMQ 4: 83]
and Allah (swt) says,
“Why do not the believing men and women, whenever such [a rumour] is heard, think the best of one another and say, “This is an obvious falsehood”?” [EMQ 24:12]
Furthermore, regardless of the happenings in Darfur , even if they were true, it is not the place of thugs and gangsters from America and the UN to enter into Sudan with their weapons and occupy any Muslim lands. Indeed it is Haram in Islam to allow any of the enemies of Islam to enter with their armies into the Muslim lands and to help them in that is Kufr Akbar. Let alone to allow them to enter with missionary organisations and fight and kill Muslims and force others to their religion.
Finally we should remember the words of Allah (swt) forbidding us to trust the Kuffar, or to believe them when they claim to seek good or salvation for the Muslims, rather they want only suffering and destruction for us.
If this lot had their way, it wouldn't only be us filthy kuffar with things to worry about - I'd wager the vast majority of British Muslims would also fall foul of their purity test.
Make of their most recent leaflet what you will - the fatalism contained within is rather disturbing:
With the anniversary of 7/7 only hours away, it seems all the loons have come out to play.
