Does the Insult Never End?

We all know the lengths we are supposed to go to in order to avoid offending Islam. No mention must be made that, as Bill O'Reilly pointed out, Muslims killed us on 9-11! That would be insensitive!

After all, Muslims have a right to build a mosque at Ground Zero, but we mustn't allow an evil Wal-Mart in NYC! The largest provider of jobs in the world (and affordable merchandise) is oppressive and evil, not a religion that brutalizes women and calls for the death of every non-Muslim, Jews in particular.

Found here:

New York City is holding a “Walmart” hearing on December 14th to see whether or not they are “allowing” Walmart to build a store in New York City.
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn joined a labor protest against the retailer last June, the Daily News reported.
“You know, it isn’t that we don’t want Walmart,” Quinn said at the rally, according to the News. “It’s that we don’t want companies that have led the nation in law suits being brought against them by workers. We don’t want companies that have the largest class-action in history brought against them. We don’t want companies where women are, over and over, paid less than men and not promoted. You can be very clear that I don’t want that.”
New York City is allowing the Ground Zero Victory Mega Mosque to be built on the grounds of “that it’s their RIGHT to build it” but they are refusing WalMart from building a WalMart store in New York City.

I wonder if they'd let me put this at Ground Zero, or anywhere else in NYC, for that matter:

OK, now, this is a rather roundabout way of getting the story I wish to post about. This dropped my jaw with the blatant gall, the unreal level of insult, that another blood-soaked member of the 'religion of peace' is levying against us:

LONDON, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Libyan leader Mommar Gadhafi says the family of released Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi plans to sue Britain, alleging false imprisonment.
Al-Megrahi was convicted in the 1988 bombing of a Pan American plane over Lockerbie, Scotland.
Gadhafi, speaking at a school in London, blamed former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher for the bombing, which killed 270 people.
Gadhafi said the bomber's family will file the lawsuit once al-Megrahi dies from prostate cancer, The Guardian reported.
Al-Megrahi was released from prison in August 2009 on compassionate grounds. Doctors said he had just a short time to live. His release was widely criticized.
"After he passes away his family will demand compensation because he was deliberately neglected in prison," Gadhafi said. "His health was not looked after in prison, and he didn't have any periodic examinations. I wish him a long life. He was released because he was considered dead, and yet he was still alive."
Gadhafi said Reagan and Thatcher conspired to blow up the plane.

Is there no place they won't go?!? Is there no insult too great?!?

An aside: A rare Muslim recipient of a farcical Nobel Peace Prize is in involved in a scandal... Muhammad Yunus, who got the NPP for aiding the poor of Bangladesh to get small loans diverted $100 million US dollars from international donors to his own corporations.

Also, Liam Neeson is stupid. Really, really stupid. I questioned his sanity after he accepted a role in those gawdawful Star Wars Prequels, but this confirms it:

Aslan, of course, is a symbol Christ.  It’s kind of hard to get around that.  Especially the death and resurrection thing in the first book.  This isn‘t stopping Neeson’s interpretation:
“Aslan symbolises a Christ-like figure but he also symbolises for me Mohammed, Buddha and all the great spiritual leaders and prophets over the centuries.
That’s who Aslan stands for as well as a mentor figure for kids – that’s what he means for me.”
This is not sitting well with Narnia fans and those who revere Lewis:
Walter Hooper, Lewis’s former secretary and a trustee of his estate, said that the author would have been angered by Neeson’s comments.
He said: “It is nothing whatever to do with Islam. Lewis would have simply denied that. He wrote that ‘the whole Narnian story is about Christ’. Lewis could not have been clearer.”
Mr Hooper attributed Neeson’s remarks to political correctness and a wish to be “very multi-cultural”.
And that’s saying it nicely.  Others are being a little more blunt:
William Oddie, a fomer editor of The Catholic Herald and a lifelong fan of the Chronicles of Narnia, accused Neeson of ‘a betrayal of Lewis’s intention and a shameful distortion’.
He said: ‘Aslan is clearly established from the very beginning of the whole cannon as being a Christ figure. I can’t believe that Liam Neeson is so stupid as not to know.’

Head/Desk. I don't know what else to say.

Lame Neeson. The second most annoying character after Jar Jar Binks...or maybe not.

New York City is politically bankrupt and deserves to reap what it sows along with many other East and Left coast cities. Their taxes are through the roof and the ability to live, work and conduct business there is dwindling every day - taxed and regulated to death. They'd rather hand out welfare checks than jobs.

Well of course he's evil. All Jedi are evil. Always mind-tricking people against their will.

No, you get shit done the Sith way. Choke someone over a holographic communication telekinetically to get your point across.

"You will take me to Jabba now" vs. "Apology accepted, Captain Needa."

Obi-Wan Kenobi couldn't lift Anakin out of the lava and fire with his Force powers. Left him to die.

That makes Kenobi evil too.

The Rebel Alliance are terrorists. Long live the Empire!

The Ground Zero Mosque will be permitted, WalMart not -- that's my prediction.

One reason that Moslems are getting bolder and bolder in the West: the threat of litigation jihad. The threat of a law suit is a very powerful tool, indeed. CAIR, typically the plaintiff, has unlimited funding; most individuals targeted by CAIR do not.

We don’t want companies where women are, over and over, paid less than men and not promoted.

So NYC is fighting Walmart because of how it teats women but is supporting Islam???

As far as Libya, Britain is safe considering al-Megrahi doesn't have cancer.

I just read the link about Narnia. So, now that great work of C.S. Lewis is perverted into a parable about Islam? I'm not surprised. Keep an eye on your children's classrooms; teachers will be TRAINED to turn Narnia into a lesson about Islam.

Brooke said...

Angel: Indeed.

Gator: Neeson's SW character was awful. Then again, the whole trilogy was terrible. Follow the 'everything that's wrong with everything' link in my sidebar...

I couldn't agree more about NYC. But then, when you get a city under Democratic rule, it quickly goes to Hell, doesn't it?

Beamish: At least you know where you stand with Vader, eh? HA!

The Empire knew how to get shit done. Well, except for their engineering department, anyway.

AOW: I believe you are correct.

I have long believed that the major jihad here is legal in nature. They will play that card to exhaustion, much like how the race card is flopped.

Islam has a long history of perverting other culture's works into being their own. It's sick, and you're right; now that the idea of this has been put out there, it will no doubt take off. Disgusting! C.S. Lewis must be spinning like a lathe right now!

Chuck: It is utter insanity, is it not?

As for that lawsuit... Britain should countersue for that old bastard NOT being dead in under three months!

I can only shake my head at the state of affairs. Ground zero mosque is good, but Walmart isn't and Narnia is going to be prostituted as a moslem parable?
The world has gone crazy. How do we get back to some common sense?

Critic Kyrie O’Connor argues that the story is decidedly (and unacceptably) pro-Western. She wrote in the Indianapolis Star on 1 Dec 2005, “While the book's storytelling virtues are enormous, you don't have to be a bluestocking of political correctness to find some of this fantasy anti-Arab, or anti-Eastern, or anti-Ottoman. With all its stereotypes, mostly played for belly laughs, there are moments you'd like to stuff this story back into its closet.” Now personally, I don’t understand this. Jack Lewis was born in Ireland; he was a British novelist. I’m not surprised he would select a (British) Lion as godhead; Lewis was a Christian apologist and intended these stories to have a pro-Christian story line. How could anyone expect him to write with anything other than a pro-Western point of view? As for the story becoming a pro-Islamic tale, I have not seen anything about this until just now and I wonder why anyone would pay attention to anything an actor would say …

OMG. Lewis must be spinning in his grave! Unbelievable.

And, that sign at the restaurant? I LOVE IT!

(Brooke, I don't often do this, but I'd sure like your take on the story I'm posting at midnight SUnday night...really would like your input. xx)

Brooke said...

Cube: I'm working on the Heisenberg compensators and the pattern buffer... Hopefully we can get back to our own universe...

Mustang: Anything can be perverted to cater to the 'religion of peace'... And as for an actor's word, usually I would pay no attention, but this is just too ridiculous!

(Unless that actor is someone like Gary Sinise or John Voight.)

Brooke said...

Z: I'll be along shortly; thanks! :)

Remember the Muslim New Yorker who founded an American Muslim oriented TV station to build relations... And then promptly beheaded his wife?

No, probably not, as the midstream media makes nary a peep about terrorism and such on your shores...

Well, more barely reported news: The bastard clams that after he was taken into custody for terrorizing, beating, and sawing his wife's head off, the county jail beat and waterboarded him.

If only they did...
