SOLO-International Press Release: Vikings Heroic in Face of Latest Islamofascist Outrage

Denmark’s three main newspapers are to be saluted for reprinting a cartoon showing the paedophile “prophet” Muhammed wearing a bomb instead of a turban, says SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo. This, after the arrest yesterday of three Islamofascists for plotting to murder the artist.

Kurt Westergaard’s cartoon was one of 12 depicting the barbarous bigot which triggered riots around the world by Islamofascists when they first appeared in 2005.

The newspapers—Jyllands-Posten, Politiken and Berlingske Tidende—have reprinted it as a nose-thumb against the plotters and the unspeakable wannabe tyranny they represent.

“If only media worldwide would display similar testicular fortitude! With what nausea do we recall the timidity of most media—and the American State Department—when the tawdry totalitarians first went berserk,” says Perigo.

“By refreshing contrast, one of the finest statements in this whole affair has just been uttered by the Danish Prime Minister, Anders Fogh Rasmussen: ‘Unfortunately, the matter shows that there are in Denmark groups of extremists that do not acknowledge and respect the principles on which Danish democracy is built. In Denmark we have freedom not only to think and talk, but also to draw.’

“Gordon Brown, of ‘Public servants are not to mention Islam and terrorism in the same sentence’ infamy, and George W. Bush, brown-noser of Saudi Arabia, please note.

“While the world perishes from its misbegotten attempts not to hurt the non-existent feelings of squalid savages, Mr. Rasmussen’s words should be emblazoned across the sky as a reminder of what might have saved us,” Perigo concludes.

Gaza Group Calls On Muslims Target Danish Embassies, Diplomats

Sandi's picture

(RTTNews) - A relatively unknown group in the Gaza Strip has called on Muslims worldwide to bomb Denmark's embassies and kill it diplomats after Danish newspapers reproduced last week caricatures of prophet Muhammad.

A spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committees in the Gaza Strip while speaking to demonstrators burning Danish flags said anyone involved the drawing, printing, or publication of the caricatures should be "slaughtered."

That's rather ironic because...

...in East Oxford, there is also a debate brewing.

I don't live in that part of the city. But if I did, I would be quite pissed off if I had to hear the Muslim call-to-prayer, no matter how seldom it may in fact turn out to be. People have likened it to church bells, but then I haven't heard any church bells in Oxford. There may be some somewhere, but not where I live.

........................................................
From the BBC Radio Oxford website:

"A religious conflict is brewing in East Oxford about broadcasting the call to prayer from loudspeakers in the minaret of the newly built Central Oxford Mosque in Manzil Way. The local and national press are having a field day, especially their headline writers who are pulling out all the stops. “The Screaming Minarets of Oxford” says The Independent. The Daily Telegraph talks about “When Religions Collide Under the Dreaming Spires”.

The press are full of ‘facts’ on the debate. The Telegraph states that Mosque members are “seeking permission to broadcast a two-minute Adhan, the traditional Muslim call to prayer, through loud speakers in the minaret three times a day."

The Independent says that people living within the area of the Mosque, “face having their lunchtimes, early afternoons and early evenings punctuated by the sound of the muezzin calling ‘hasten to prayer’.”

The Express on Sunday argues that “Indigenous Brits are indeed becoming strangers in their own country… a mosque in Oxford has applied to disturb the peace by using loudspeakers to call the faithful to prayer three times a day. Why should ordinary British folk have to endure such ghastly electronic caterwauling? If Muslims need reminding about times to pray, let them buy alarm clocks.”

Campaigns against Muslims not justified by freedom of expression

Sandi's picture

"Political and cultural Jordanian organizations have denounced the western media campaigns against Islam and Muslims.

They condemned, in a statement released here today, re-publishing the drawings, which insult Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him, by the Danish newspapers.

The organizations pointed out that these biased campaigns stand as a witness for the existing fanatic racial mobilization against the Muslims and their sanctities.

They called for boycotting Denmark at all economic, political and cultural domains in a gradual manner.

The organizations said the Danish government is fully aware of the fact that these campaigns against Islam and Muslims can never be justified by freedom of expression.

The organizations underlined the importance of taking wise and practical measures for ending these campaigns against Islam."

Better wrap up the comp,

Better wrap up the comp, Guys. Mr Ihsanoglu say's that kind of thing is unacceptable.

 

The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) denounced on Friday the reprinting of a Danish cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad, warning it could lead to confrontations between Muslims and Christians. "By reprinting these cartoons we are heading toward a bigger conflict and that shows that both sides will be hostages of their radicals," OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, a Turk, said in Istanbul. The Jeddah-based OIC is the world's largest pan-Islamic body, with 57 members.

"It is not a way of improving your rights and exercising your freedoms when you use these rights for insulting the most sacred values and symbols of others and inciting hatred," he said. "This is a very wrong, provocative path - unacceptable."

Danish Muslims in cartoon protest
By Frances Harrison
BBC religious affairs reporter, Copenhagen

Hundreds of Danish Muslims have been demonstrating in Copenhagen against the reprinting of a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad they consider offensive.

The cartoon depicts the Prophet with a bomb in his turban.

All major Danish newspapers decided to republish it after Danish intelligence said it had uncovered a plot to kill one of the cartoonists.

Protestors marched in the capital's streets shouting "God is Great!" and "Freedom of speech is like a plague!".

Many carried the black and white flags of Hizb ut-Tahrir - the radical Islamic party that calls for the creation of a caliphate.

Earlier, at Friday prayers, Danish Muslims from many backgrounds expressed frustration that one of the cartoons they find so offensive could have been printed again.

Weary resignation

Many said they simply could not understand the motive unless it was hatred for Islam.

But the overwhelming mood was not so much anger but weary resignation; a sense that they have been through this crisis once before and nothing has been learnt.

Some Danish Muslims said they felt the problem was not the Danish people who were, if not well informed about Islam, at least generally liberal.

Instead, they pointed the finger of blame at the Danish media, saying it had stirred controversy instead of trying to help mend community relations.

On Tuesday, Denmark's Security and Intelligence Service said it had uncovered a plot by three Muslims in Denmark to kill one of the cartoonists.

Two of the men, who are not Danish citizens, are due to be expelled to Tunisia rather than put on trial.

Many Danish Muslims criticised this decision, saying it would be better to examine the evidence and punish the men if they were really guilty.

Copenhagen suffers five nights of violence?

Marcus's picture

The BBC just reported this story, however I haven't been able to find it yet on their website. I believe a school was set on fire. I am bit confused though, some blogs are describing this as "youth" violence as others as "Muslim" violence.

However, the Danish newspapers have had an impact internationally too, as this story from the Guardian shows.

Iran should get stuffed!!!

Iran condemns reprinting of Muhammad cartoon

Roxanne Escobales
Thursday February 14 2008

Iran has reprimanded the Danish ambassador after newspapers in Denmark reprinted a controversial cartoon of the prophet Muhammad, Iranian state TV reported today.

During the meeting Tehran reportedly condemned the newspapers' action in strong terms, demanding the Danish government take a "serious approach" to the case and prohibit the printing of the satirical cartoon again. The illustration shows the Islamic prophet wearing a turban-shaped bomb on his head, complete with a lit fuse.

As an act of solidarity, some of the main Danish newspapers republished what was seen as the most offensive of 12 cartoons of Muhammad by the newspaper cartoonist Kurt Westergaard. Yesterday police revealed they had foiled a murder attempt on Westergaard.

Two years ago, violent riots broke out throughout the Muslim world when the series of cartoons was originally published in Jyllands Posten. Islamic law generally opposes depictions of the prophet, even favourable ones, for fear they could lead to idolatry.

A ferocious debate opposing the right to free speech and the sanctity of Islam ensued. Angry mobs burned the Danish flag and attacked Danish and other western embassies in Tehran. Similar attacks took place in other Muslim countries, the violence leading to the deaths of some protesters in Afghanistan and Libya.

In addition, Danish products were boycotted by many Muslim consumers around the world.

The frustration fades and is eventually replaced by confidence.  While the trend is negative, the philosophical solution has been provided.  We are right, they are wrong, and its not even close. 

Very good analogy

dinther's picture

I think I have already taken the red pill a while ago. In very different words my wife told me the same when I made the same comment to her.

"It has always been in your head. It is impossible to deny"

So, now I have to find a way to live with it while fighting it and not let it frustrate me. but lately the battle of reason seems lost on every front.

One awesome point of light is my 12 year old son who now starts discussing morals and values with me. Fantastic discussions we start to have. Today in the car he said:

"You have no right to be free."

That seemed quite a bold statement but he explained it saying that he feels that a right is given to you but nobody may give him freedom because he simply decides he has. Argue it whichever way you want but I think that level of thought is awesome.

Morpheus: I imagine that right now you're feeling a bit like Alice. Tumbling down the rabbit hole?
Neo: You could say that.
Morpheus: I can see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he's expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?
Neo: No.
Morpheus: Why not?
Neo: 'Cause I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life.
Morpheus: I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know, you can't explain. But you feel it. You felt it your entire life. That there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there. Like a splinter in your mind -- driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?
Neo: The Matrix?
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?
(Neo nods his head.)
Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, or when go to church or when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born inside a prison that you cannot smell, taste, or touch. A prison for your mind. (long pause, sighs) Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back.
(In his left hand, Morpheus shows a blue pill.)
Morpheus: You take the blue pill and the story ends. You wake in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. (a red pill is shown in his other hand) You take the red pill and you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. (Long pause; Neo begins to reach for the red pill) Remember -- all I am offering is the truth, nothing more.
(Neo takes the red pill and swallows it with a glass of water)

I admit that reason is a small and feeble flame, a flickering torch by stumblers carried in the starless night, -- blown and flared by passion's storm, -- and yet, it is the only light. Extinguish that, and nought remains.- - Robert Green Ingersoll

Duncan! T-Shirt

How long before Duncan will offer us a T-Shirt with that picture?

Philip Nitschke (Euthenasia campaigner) would love to have some. Nah, the government will ban those T-Shirts. Not for it sensitive subject but because euthanasia is not allowed in NZ.

What a god-damn circus. Sometimes I wish I never heard of Solo Passion, Libertarianz, Ayn Rand and Atlas Shrugged. Every second sentence I hear or read in the media remind me of a passage in that book.

"This morning’s newspapers: turban bombs everywhere"

“Of course I fear for my life after the Danish Security and Intelligence Service informed me of the concrete plans of certain people to kill me. However, I have turned fear into anger and indignation. It has made me angry that a perfectly normal everyday activity which I used to do by the thousand was abused to set off such madness. I have attended to my work and I still do. I could not possibly know for how long I have to live under police protection; I think, however, that the impact of the insane response to my cartoon will last for the rest of my life. It is sad indeed, but it has become a fact of my life.”
