SOLO Op-Ed: Femi-Nazis and Homo-Nazis Condemned by their Own Silence

Sandra Ashworth

November 27, 2007

The international community has been shocked at the review of the sentence of prison terms and floggings recently passed on Saudi rape victims.

In a recent media release addressing this situation with “dismay,” Helen Clark declared that “New Zealand fully respects the judicial system of Saudi Arabia.” [1]

SOLO would like to remind Ms Clark, that New Zealand was the first country in the world to give women the vote over a century ago. In Saudi Arabia, women to this day do not have the right to vote. [4]

Prime Minister Helen Clark has just compromised an entire century of women’s suffrage and has put the integrity of ALL New Zealanders on the line.

How could New Zealanders possibly respect the Saudi judicial system?! As a woman and as a politician, how could Helen Clark honestly say that she respects a country that would deny her the right to vote and her very political existence?

New Zealand SOLOists are shouting from the rooftops, that YOU Helen Clark, do not speak for us. We deplore and condemn the Saudi judicial system. We deplore and condemn your press statement that New Zealand fully supports Saudi law and we deplore and condemn you for publicly supporting barbarism, discrimination, and absolute disempowerment of women & individual freedom.

According to Ms. Clark, New Zealand fully respects a judicial system that not only prosecutes but also metes out a sentence of 200 lashes and a prison term ... to a gang rape victim!

Where are the voices of contempt?

If Sue Bradford, The Greens and the Maori Party had an ounce of integrity between them they would be taking this opportunity to circle the globe, shouting “foul” from their anti-smacking magic carpet. Surely the Saudi situation is even more worthy of their time than prosecuting law-abiding NZ citizens?

Where is the voice from Judith Collins? On her web site she stands in her full glory in the middle of a photograph wearing a white ribbon in support of the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Just another photo opportunity, huh Judith?

Why the silence from women’s rights campaigner’s? Do they actually exist or have they crawled under a rock because this is not worthy of reproach? One would have to think that they burned their courage and integrity along with their bras. I wonder if it’s compulsory to wear a bra under a burqa?

Where is a voice from the gay community? One of the rape victims sentenced to be flogged is a male. The Saudi government wallows in its own hypocrisy in failing to charge any of the perpetrators with the gang rape of the male abductee. Homosexuality in Saudi Arabia is punishable by death. [3]

Shame on you silent apologists, appeasers and yellow-bellied cowards. Shame on you all!

Your silence is your hypocrisy, NOT OURS.

In conclusion, if I can find anything that the Saudi judicial law has remotely got in common with Helen Clark and New Zealand, it would be that in Saudi any criticism of the government is not tolerated. [2]

If you do not support Helen Clark’s statement that New Zealand fully respects the Saudi judicial system, visit www.Solopassion.com, cast your vote and vent your rage.

Wake the fuck up, man. Don't you see a pattern in your appeasement? You supported the vile Peron until several hours after the last minute. You are still looking for excuses for Islamo-Fascism. You were going to vote for Ron Paul until I screamed at you. How much "hard evidence" does it take to get you permanently out of amoral catatonia? Leave the Islamo-Fascism to the anarcho-Saddamites here. You are way better than they. Man up, man!

Then let me present a very clear case of exactly what you are talking about Duncan. Courtesy of SIOE:

Islam as Conspiracy
When one discusses the existential threat posed to European nations by their large and rapidly growing Muslim populations with those not yet convinced of it, one of the most commonly-heard objections is that the notion smacks of a conspiracy theory. ‘So they’ve come here to take over, have they?’ goes the incredulous response. This line of thought, though misconceived, is superficially persuasive to some degree and not easily refutable by simply pointing out that some small minority of Muslims in each country is in fact quite vocal about its desires in this respect. As such, it deserves some discussion here.

The ‘Good Cop, Bad Cop’ analogy has often been suggested to provide a model for understanding Muslim behaviour in certain regards: Bad Cop carries out terrorist atrocity, Good Cop expresses profound sorrow but suggests that attacks will continue as long as certain demands are not met. However, in this model the Good Cop and the Bad Cop act on the basis of an explicit understanding of their roles, in pursuit of an objective agreed upon in advance. As one assumes that Islamist lobby groups and would-be terrorists are not actively colluding, we must answer the question of how an analogous coordination could take place, or abandon the model.

The coordinating force in question is, of course, Islam itself. Given the religious totalitarianism intrinsic to it and the imperative it contains to expand the geographical domain of that totalitarianism, it is hardly surprising that Muslims in a non-Muslim society should pursue Islamization, and that they should pursue it in a variety of ways given the broad spectrum of personalities, backgrounds, skills, and social standings they will be drawn from. There is no reason why Muslims cannot reference the actions of other Muslims they have never been in contact with in attempting to convince Europeans to meet their demands. Indeed, they will be extremely likely to do so, as these actions can comprise the single most obvious dilemma facing said Europeans with respect to their Muslim populations.

Consider the suggestion of the Muslim Council of Britain to the British government that incorporating Muslim holidays into the official calendar and allowing Shari’a-based divorce could help to reduce the rage felt by the UK’s Muslim population and prevent future terrorist attacks. The manifest implausibility of this notion makes its opportunistic nature clear. The MCB may have genuinely disapproved of the attack and may have silently cheered it, but the opportunity would have been utilized regardless. Thus, terrorists and lobbyists achieve a high degree of teamwork without even having any specific knowledge of each other’s existence. Asking who acts as a coordinator would be equivalent to asking who ‘coordinates’ the anti-Semitism of Nazis, be it expressed through political activism or attacks on Jews. In this case, Nazism itself is the sole and sufficient coordinator. An alternative formulation would be to say that the Islamization conspiracy is coordinated by none other than Islam itself, the invisible hand that takes the activities of millions of Muslims unknown to each other and combines them into a coherent whole, clearly visible to those with the will to see it.

What is most interesting about this conspiracy is its public nature. The texts, doctrine, laws, and history of Islam, together with much analysis of the same, are more available to non-Muslims than ever before, along with a steady flow of news about their global behaviour, and a large and growing number of Muslims who explicit declare the supremacist nature of their religion. Despite this, it remains quite invisible to huge numbers of otherwise intelligent non-Muslims, who assume the problems caused with remarkable consistency by Muslims and only Muslims, wherever they are to be found in large numbers, are teething troubles that would disappear if only some list of conditions were fulfilled.

There are surely many people of good will in European countries who are not as concerned as they should be about Islam due to their inability to distinguish between harmless concessions to a community genuinely eager to fit in, and the latest of the thousand cuts that Islam hopes to defeat us with. Formulating a strategy for helping such people see why even minor concessions should be opposed, perhaps in the manner outlined above, could be a valuable activity.

Not at all. In fact, I have

Duncan Bayne's picture

Not at all. In fact, I have reached the conclusion that the ends of the moderate Muslims are functionally identical to the radicals: they both want Sharia imposed upon the West.

The only significant difference between the moderates and the radicals is their means: the latter will use terrorism and physical violence, while the former leverage Western fears of terrorism and violence to impose Sharia through the democratic process.

My gut feeling - although without hard evidence at this point - is that the two are being co-ordinated at some level to take advantage of this peculiar synergy.

At least the Muslim Council did actually speak out. However ironically this is, given that Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari, the leader of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), has warned that Britain must beware of becoming like Nazi Germany.

Lance...I doubt it.

I think the council would say Gillian Gibbons should have been punished if she had actually intended to insult Mohammed - (they wouldn't be very consistent Muslims otherwise).

It's quite strange the court in Sudan didn't ask if US Americans had not been insulted too from "Teddy" (derived from US President Theodore Roosevelt) being named Mohammed Smiling

That's a breath of fresh air

That's a breath of fresh air from the Muslim Council of Britain.

I do have one question though, if the decision to name the toy Muhammed/Mohammed was deliberate and not 'naive' per se, would they still consider it to not be a crime?

Newsflash: Teddy Teacher sentenced to 15 days in jail.

Teddy row teacher found guilty
By Nick Britten, Aislinn Simpson and Blake Evans-Pritchard
Last Updated: 8:02pm GMT 29/11/2007

The British teacher arrested in Sudan after allowing pupils to call the class teddy bear Mohammed has been jailed for 15 days.

Gillian Gibbons, 54, was found guilty of insulting religion and inciting hatred at the end of a day long court hearing in Khartoum amid scenes of protest from extreme Islamist groups who had called for her execution.

The reaction from the Sudanese has sparked outrage from Muslim groups in the UK and has clearly angered the British Government.

David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, who earlier summoned the Sudan ambassador for an emergency meeting at Whitehall during which he pressed for Mrs Gibbons’ immediate release, said he would be ordering him back to Whitehall to explain the sentence, which he called “disappointing”.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are extremely disappointed with the verdict and the Foreign Secretary has summoned the Sudanese ambassador to explain the decision.”

The 15 days will be taken from when Mrs Gibbons was arrested on Sunday, and last night a diplomatic expert said it was likely she would not have to serve her whole sentence and could be released in the next 48 hours.

The Muslim Council of Britain, an umbrella group of British Muslim organisations, called the sentence “completely unjustified”.

“(Mrs Gibbons) should never have been arrested in the first place, let alone convicted of any crime,” Muslim Council of Britain spokesman Inayat Bunglawala said.

“There was no crime, it was a wholly innocent and naive... The worst you could say about her actions is that she was inadvertently naive. She should not be put in prison for that.”

If DPW get Auckland airport, they also own Emirates. Guess which Airline gets all the cream?

As for a free market, if the world gets an Islamic global landlord. "Who ever has the most gold makes all the rules".

Part of the bigger picture is to make Dubai the worlds major hub.

"As with other new Dubai projects, the Dubai World Central scheme's public launch has been supported by a promotional barrage. Official press statements have sought to suggest that in just 18 months the emirate will build the world's largest airport, with six parallel runways, each 4.5km long, with 800-metre deparation zones between them and three terminals. "By the end of 2007, the new Dubai World Central Airport and its six runways will be the world's largest passenger and cargo hub capable of handling 120m passengers almost double London Heathrow's current handling capacity. It will also have the capacity to handle 12m tons of cargo annually, compared to Heathrow's current 1.3m tons," the government announced.

But although construction of a first runway and terminal has begun and is set for completion by end-2007 it is cargo and charter flights, and executive jets, that will be DWC's initial customers. Fulfilment of ambitions to create the world's largest air transport hub will only follow over coming years and decades, ...........

The parent vehicle for both the airport and surrounding urban schemes is the new DWC parastatal, chaired by Sheikh Saeed Ahmed Bin Saeed Al-Maktoum.The ruling family is thus taking the lead in another megaproject a Dubai hallmark. DWC's boss is already a leading figure as chairman of Emirates Airline and president of Dubai's Department of Civil Aviation. Sheikh Saeed also heads the Dubai Aerospace Enterprise body announced by the emirate's government in February as a vehicle for developing aviation industries and services, with day to day operations overseen by managing director Mohammed Al-Zarouni......

....The venerable Islamic Development Bank is to take a major structural step forward by setting up a dedicated trade finance arm, with a new export-import bank to be called the International Islamic Trade Finance Corporation

''''committing more than $38bn during its lifetime to support over 3,000 projects in its 56 member countries AND MUSLIM COMMUNITIES.......

While many banks and risk mitigators have pulled back from the Islamic Republic amid fears of an eventually violent confrontation with the United States and its allies, some specialist banks and private market insurers are choosing to stay in the Iranian market because of the very attractive margins on offer.....

One route into Iran, private banks in Tehran told GSN, could be to use leasing and other operations that are being run through Iranian operations based in Dubai (GSN 782/12). One senior Tehran-based private sector banker suggested running goods into Dubai on short terms, for them to be re-exported to their Iranian end-users on five-year leasing terms. Local banks such as fast growing private sector enterprises EN Bank and Parsian Bank have been developing these operations.

Tehran is looking at a range of routes around its potential problems if the nuclear crisis escalates further......

The Saudi government intends to remain a big player in the market, despite the inflow of foreign firms......

Meanwhile, Barclays Capital recently co-managed a $3.5bn sukuk (Islamic bond) issued by Dubai's Ports, Customs and Free Zones Corporation. The issuers brought Barclays Capital into the deal to help place the issue internationally, while Dubai Islamic Bank distributed the bond in the Middle East. Elsewhere, Citigroup recently created the first sukuk bond index with Dow Jones to track the price of these instruments......."

With regards to your hypothesis, it is simply not possible to have a monopoly situation in a free market...(let alone 'World Domination')

"I create nothing. I own"

I strongly disagree

Sandi's picture

These businesses vehemently promote Sharia.

You would sell our major port to an Islamic dictatorship?

The Strategic Implications

The goal of Islamists, following in the footsteps of Muhammad is to create the Islamic kingdom of God on earth. The strategy to obtain this goal in our lifetime includes the control of the world's energy infrastructure, the transportation systems, currency, media, elections, immigration and education. The control of the port facilities is hence a critical element. Foreign ownership, in and of itself, although important, is not as significant as the strategy and goals of the owner. In the case of DP World ownership, my hypothesis is that their plan for utilization of these strategic infrastructure resources is to accomplish the ultimate goal of world domination of the sea borne transportation infrastructure. In similar moves, a newly-formed Dubai consortium unveiled plans to bid for the development and operation of airports in China, India and the Middle East, a market they estimate to be worth $400 bln. The consortium comprises DAE Airports and six other top companies in the United Arab Emirates .......

fleecing these people of $7.5 Billion is a great thing and should be seen as so.

What happens is something like this...

They spend $7.5 billion, this is money outside America coming into America.
Citigroup decides not to put it in their bottom drawer Eye but rather to spend the money paying their staff and suppliers, or (due to the nature of Citigroup's business) make loans to its customers.

Their staff and suppliers spend their money in America, creating economic activity with money which has come into the American economy from outside.
The people who receive housing or business loans or overdrafts from Citigroup spend that money.

The people who receive the money which is spent also go out and spend it, the people receiving this money spend it...and so on.

After a while all this spending...this economic activity, is providing employment and wellbeing and it all emanates from new money entering the economy from outside.

All foreign investment in a Country has this result which is why it is a good thing and should be widely encouraged, and I only wish the brain damaged shareholders of Auckland International Airport could see this.

In short, it amounts to a 'free gift' to the economy.

I agree 100% with your initial post, but not with the 'creeping Sharia' concern on the Citigroup transaction (as, indeed, I had no problem with the Dubai consortium trying to takeover Auckland Airport).

These business interests have as much to lose from Sharia Law and Islamofascism as we do, indeed, capitalism may well be the best way to start pulling this culture out of the Stone Age. And with the money they're putting up, there is no way they're going to sabotage their operations being invested in.

Nice find Mike, I'd heard

Lance's picture

Nice find Mike, I'd heard that the US had expressed 'astonishment' which makes 'dismay' sound almost like a declaration of war! Gutless wonders all. I've taken the liberty of lifting the entire exchange from the site you linked:

"QUESTION: Can we return to the case of the Saudi rape victim and her punishment?

MR. MCCORMACK: Sure.

QUESTION: Are you going to exert any pressure on the Saudi Government that this constitutes some kind of human rights violation?

MR. MCCORMACK: Well, it is within -- it is within their ability to take a look at this sentence and to make changes in it. I'm sure that, however, rests entirely in their hands. We have expressed our astonishment at such a sentence. I think that when you look at the crime and the fact that now the victim is punished, I think that causes a fair degree of surprise and astonishment. But it is within the power of the Saudi Government to take a look at the verdict and change it.

QUESTION: Why won't the United States go further and condemn this outright?

MR. MCCORMACK: Look, we've said -- we've talked about it yesterday, we talked about it today. As we said, it's within their power to change the verdict.

QUESTION: Sean, do you link that case to sort of the broader issue of reforms in Saudi Arabia which you've been pushing for in the past several years, not only in Saudi Arabia but in the whole region, in Egypt and other countries? You've talked about democracy. This is more about human rights, I suppose. But do you link these -- this case to the broader issue of the reforms in the Kingdom at all?

MR. MCCORMACK: The process of change in Saudi Arabia is one that's going to take place over time. And we have talked about the importance of changes within the -- changes in the ability of all citizens of the region, including Saudi Arabia, to participate in the formulation of the laws, the direction that the Kingdom will take, the direction that countries in the region are going to take.

Once you have that, once you have the able for all the citizens to participate and have a say in that, then they are going to have to really navigate the various issues that are before them. And they're going to have make some -- make decisions about very basic societal issues and what their norms are. It's going to vary from country to country. So we're not going to try to dictate social norms to various countries.

We think it's essential that every individual enjoy basic universal rights that we believe every person on the planet should enjoy, and those include freedom of expression, freedom to choose freely one's leaders. The Saudi Government has committed itself to a pathway of reform, as have other states in the region. That pathway of reform is going to -- each of those states is going to go down that pathway at its own pace, though.

QUESTION: Is your comment about this particular case, though, driven by a desire not to offend Saudi Arabia as a close ally, particularly on the eve of the --

MR. MCCORMACK: No, it's -- no, that's not it at all. Look, you have a situation that I think most individuals, for example in our country, just don't understand. We don't understand how something like this could happen. That said, these kinds of decisions are going to have to be decisions that the people of that country, in this case Saudi Arabia, are going to have to take for themselves. We can express our views about that, but ultimately it's going to be up to the individual countries to decide whether or not they are going to take into account the views from the outside world.

QUESTION: When you say, Sean, we have expressed our astonishment, does that -- is that just from you from the podium or has a representation been made to the Saudi Government that --

MR. MCCORMACK: I am not aware of any direct contact with the Saudis on this issue."

Pathetic!

This: "We can express our views about that, but ultimately it's going to be up to the individual countries to decide whether or not they are going to take into account the views from the outside world."
So they CAN express their views... so why didn't they?(beyond of course 'astonishment')

Further what possible motivation does Saudi Arabia have to make any changes? Half their population (women) is utterly subjugated, the rest almost utterly, they are incredibly wealthy and friendly with the most powerful nation on the planet, a nation that refuses to condemn any of their ridiculous, stinking, primitive, barbaric actions!

HWH's picture

Excellent Sandi...keep exposing the scum.

As Ayn suggested: (from The Ayn Rand Letter, vol. 1, No. 7 January 3, 1972

"What Can One Do?"

I will say: when you ask "What can one do?"—the answer is "SPEAK" (provided you know what you are saying).

A few suggestions: do not wait for a national audience. Speak on any scale open to you, large or small—to your friends, your associates, your professional organizations, or any legitimate public forum. You can never tell when your words will reach the right mind at the right time. You will see no immediate results—but it is of such activities that public opinion is made.

Do not pass up a chance to express your views on important issues. Write letters to the editors of newspapers and magazines, to TV and radio commentators and, above all, to your Congressmen (who depend on their constituents). If your letters are brief and rational (rather than incoherently emotional), they will have more influence than you suspect.

The opportunities to speak are all around you. I suggest that you make the following experiment: take an ideological "inventory" of one week, i.e., note how many times people utter the wrong political, social and moral notions as if these were self-evident truths, with your silent sanction.

Then make it a habit to object to such remarks—no, not to make lengthy speeches, which are seldom appropriate, but merely to say: "I don't agree." (And be prepared to explain why, if the speaker wants to know.) This is one of the best ways to stop the spread of vicious bromides.

(If the speaker is innocent, it will help him; if he is not, it will undercut his confidence the next time.) Most particularly, do not keep silent when your own ideas and values are being attacked.

The Saudi Government has committed itself to a pathway of reform, as have other states in the region.
