Modern Civ: No place for Islam

Whenever I hear some LibTard whine about the plight of minorities, the underclass or how the US campaigns in the Middle East "caused" Muslims to turn to violence, I think to myself, "This guy needs to do some volunteer work." At least if the person went into Zaire, Yemen or Myanmar - their eyes would be opened. They'd see first hand that the freedoms and liberty we enjoy here, and engender worldwide, are an anomoly. To criticize the US as a "police state" is a slap in the face to real police states across the globe.

When a talented and caring Liverpool school teacher wanted to make a difference, she decided to go volunteer teach in Sudan. Things were moving along for her quite well until one day she let her school kids pick a name for some stuffed pet animals. The name that they chose for a particular teddy bear was "Mohammed."

Just to show you, cherished reader, yet again another insight into the twisted mind of your typical Muslim, this school teacher is now looking at 6 months in a Sudanese prison, or 40 lashes, for "insulting the image of the Prophet" [may his name be disgraced]. Author Joan Smith writes about it in the Independent UK online. The piece is entitled Islam and the modern world don't mix.

While it seems like Ms. Smith is pointing out the bloody obvious, she elucidates Islam's basic contradictions that preclude it from ever comingling with a modern civilization.

Once again, secular people around the world are left reeling at the capacity of Islam to discern "insult" in the most innocuous behaviour. At one level, this sequence of events is preposterous; I'm sure there are plenty of genuine crimes to worry about in Sudan without wasting time pursuing a woman whose good intentions are manifest.

But the significance of the case goes beyond the individuals concerned,highlighting aspects of Islam as it is currently practised in countries such as Sudan and Saudi Arabia – and promoted in some European mosques – which are incompatible with the modern world. One is the role of honour, which has repeatedly been used to legitimise furious over-reactions to everything from the naming of a toy to instances of women and gay people demanding autonomy over their bodies.

Ever since the outcry over The Satanic Verses nearly two decades ago, I have watched Muslim men (they almost always are men) use the claim that their honour has been insulted as an excuse for disgraceful and frequently criminal behaviour. Salman Rushdie "insults" the Prophet: burn his books. Danish cartoonists display a lack of respect for Islam: attack Danish embassies. A British Muslim girl wants to marry the "wrong" man: kill her for shaming the family. A Saudi rape victim complains that her attackers got off too lightly: increase her sentence (for being in a car with a man who wasn't her husband) to 200 lashes.


The values that we have, our core beliefs, aren't congruent with those of our brethren in the middle east. That is the crux of the problem and one, that I feel, is insurmountable.

Man, you got to know this religion is old school! They don't bend like the Christian faith does. There's no Gay Muslim Church! The Christian faith of now has become a blasphemy of the bible!

Once again, you are on the money Bro. Shit, reitre and run for office Rue.

I saw that ISLAM billboard on I294 near O Hare making my trek from the Nort-side to da sout-side and almost veered across a couple lanes of traffic. UNBELIEVABLE!!!! Ironic that the billboard is right by O Hare Airport. Our current politicians will be watering their aminals one day....and getting their empty skulls lobbed off the next.

Hi Sabes -
You're right. The first thing I thought when I saw that billboard was, "Who's paying for it?"

Just another example of Saudi Arabian money trying to spread their wahabbi brainwashing! It's disgusting.

I do not agree with what you say. You are being a typical American. I know people that have gotten robbed before by 1 black person and this made all black people bad. You can not judge an entire race of people by the actions of a few.
I heard Catholic Priest Molest little boy so I guess all christians are child molestors.
Grow up and read a book. You are only repeating history yet again.

Go back to school and learn how to read / write english, sharmoot.

The Religion of Peace is anything but peaceful. When conservative estimates show that 100,000 Muslims worldwide agree with radical jihadist Islam, the entire religion deserves to be condemned for not issuing a "fatwa" against the violence.

The Quoran is a book of violence, hate and intolerance. Show me in the Bible or Torah where it says that those who oppose Christianity should be put to the sword: Nowhere!

Go fuck yourself and get off my blog, you throwback neanderthal.

Ha! I concur Rue. I saw an interview on TV a month or two ago. it was when these Oak Lawn people were trying to get Christmas outta the schools or some shit and it was the Islam crowd wanting an all-inclusive "winer holiday' instead. AND, the guy they interviewed for commentary was an expert on muslim affairs and when asked if this was in an Arab country, what would be the response if Christians wanted to celebrate Christmas and he slipped....or maybe not. He said "If a Christian could survive....." they could ask for it. Ha! I've been to Europe and the muslim crowd bullies people there. I have been to Madrid, Morocco and a few other spots pre-911 and got treated like dog shit by muslims. They are about one way:their way. Obey or die. Sorry. Not me. Go find a fucking Saudi blog and kiss their ass over there. What a complete and utter fool. Be glad you didn't say that face to face with me. Cause I'd be in your face this//fast. I know what those people are about.
