Islamophobic Yodeling

Islamophobic Yodeling

Austrian “hate speech” prosecutors are very busy these days. In addition to going after Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff for “prejudicial incitement,” i.e., criticizing Islam and Sharia laws at a seminar, the Austrians found the time to crack down on yet another “Islamophobic” miscreant, a 63 year old Austrian retiree.

“Helmut G. was busy on Friday afternoon, mowing his grass. ‘And because I was just in such a good mood, I yodeled along with it and sang a few songs,’ says the retiree, speaking to the Styrian Crown. That was not all right with his neighbors — believing Muslims. They had gathered in their house at prayer hour, which was also broadcast into their yard by loudspeaker… Consequently, several of them felt disturbed in their religious exercises by the grass-mowing 63-year old — and promptly reported him to the police. ‘In the statement it said that my yodeling sounded like the call of the muezzin,’ Helmut G. shook his head, bewildered. ‘It was definitely not my intention to imitate him,’ the Graz native assures us. The court did not believe him and sentenced him to a fat fine.”

In a way, I am glad that the Austrians have helped to flesh out further the debate regarding Islam and Islamism. As you know, LP works to protect the right to comment on radical Islam, terrorism and related issues without fear of legal retaliation. It is often hard to discuss such politically charged topics without knowing exactly what the rules of the debate are. At the very least, we need to determine how far we can go before violating them and/or if we are going to be violating them. So, it is probably a good thing that in the past two decades, in a piecemeal, case-by-case fashion, the elites of the European nations – and to a lesser extent, the US – have been steadily compiling and revealing the rules of discussion regarding Islam, radical Islam, and Islamist terrorism to educate ordinary folks like you and me. These rules apparently include the following:

* Thou shalt not accurately describe Sharia law. See Geert Wilders. See Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.
* Thou shalt not criticize any Islamic doctrines. See Geert Wilders. See Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.
* Thou shalt not report on and/or criticize the funding of terror by Islamists. See Rachel Ehrenfield.
* Thou shalt not disparage – or even depict – the Islamic Prophet Muhammed. See the Jyllands-Posten Danish Cartoons. See South Park.
* Thou shalt not criticize the appropriateness of building any mosque, anywhere. See the Ground Zero Mosque debate.
* Thou shalt not admit to any politically incorrect thought(s) about Muslims, even if you immediately disavow it (them) as “irrational” and denounce it (them) on air. See Juan Williams.

Violating any of these rules – in the US and in Europe – is, according to the elites, a clear sign of “Islamophobia.” Violating any of these rules – in Europe alone – is also a sign of criminality.

So, thanks to the Austrians, we now know that we should add “thou shalt not yodel along with the call of the muezzin” as another rule to be followed. And I, for one, am thankful for this addition. Who knew that “Islamophobic Yodeling” was a problem?

No matter where I look in the news (main stream) I see so much dhimmitude.

Robert Spencer defined it best in my opinion:
Dhimmitude is the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for non-Muslims, primarily Jews and Christians. Dhimmis, “protected” or “guilty” people, are free to practice their religion in a Sharia regime, but are made subject to a number of humiliating regulations designed to enforce the Qur’an’s command that they “feel themselves subdued” (Sura 9:29). This denial of equality of rights and dignity remains part of the Sharia, and, as such, are part of the legal superstructure that global jihadists are laboring through violence to restore everywhere in the Islamic world, and wish ultimately to impose on the entire human race.

Is that not a perfect description of what so many of our “betters” (in govt, local govt, lawmakers and on and on) are doing in relation to Islam. Muslims in all our western countries are demanding “rights” (and getting them) and tolerance and in return we the westerners are receiving nothing but contempt. Islam has learned very quickly how to use our own laws against us.

I see so many putting their heads in the sand where Islam is concerned. They have made their aim very clear – a World Caliphate. If we in the west continue to deny reality we will be overrun by Islam in their stealth jihad against us. They will outbreed us, they will change our laws, they will intimidate and when those things don’t work will use direct force (violent protests and terrorism) Make no mistake, we are already in a war with them. Islam knows it, but the west denies it and it will be the death of the west if we don’t wake up.

A Smiling Obama Returns to Bloody Jakarta

Here’s an excellent and accurate article by Daniel Greenfield at his Sultan Knish blog:

The media narrative is that Barack Hussein Obama is returning to the place where he grew up as part of a diplomatic tour. The truth is that Obama is visiting a genocidal country and paying homage to its regime, even while many of the atrocities continue.

While Obama found time to blast Israel for building housing in Jerusalem, he made no mention of the Indonesian genocide in East Timor. No word about the Indonesian mass murder of between 100,000 to 200,000 people in a country whose population totaled little more than half a million. Shortly after Obama left Jakarta, the Indonesian regime began an occupation that lasted until 1999. An occupation armed and aided by successive US administrations.

But there is a reason you won’t hear about the meat hooks where Indonesian backed militias hung their victims, before mutilating and killing them. You won’t hear about the fields of the dead where the corpses of men, women and children were piled into mass graves. You won’t hear of the machete squads who hacked people to death in full public view and on video. You certainly won’t hear about the ethnic cleansing, the mass deportations, the gang rapes or even the murder of Western reporters. And there’s a simple reason for all that.

Indonesia is a Muslim country. Their victims in East Timor were Christians.

To understand the significance of Obama’s biography– imagine that an American President who grew up in Nazi Germany on the eve of war, wrote only about his idyllic childhood running around the streets of Berlin and learning to read Mein Kampf, and then returned decades later, with no concession that a genocide had occurred here.

Not only does Obama insist on playing dumb when it comes to his adopted country’s genocidal recent history, but appointed Dennis Blair as Director of National Intelligence. Back in 1999, after 200 people had been massacred in a Catholic Church, Dennis Blair was sent to ask for an end to the killing, instead he invited the Indonesian general to Hawaii and offered him American military assistance. This did not stop Blair from being confirmed, even though he had become a collaborator in genocide. Blair then brought along Chas Freeman, who claimed that China had been restrained in carrying out the Tiananmen Square Massacre. And the likes of Joe Klein and Andrew Sullivan rose to defend Freeman against any criticism.

Blair and Freeman are gone now, but this is an administration that thought both men were worthy of high positions. A nightmarish idea by any measure. Membership in the Nazi party would have disqualified just about any nominee, but giving a thumbs up to genocide and massacres in Asia makes one an honorable man.

But East Timor isn’t the end of it. The same Indonesian military is still in business.

The Kopassus special forces, Indonesia’s answer to the German SS, are still out and about. In 1998, Kopassus thugs gang raped hundreds of Chinese women in Jakarta. Some were burnt alive. The victims were as young as 10 years old and some were thrown into burning buildings afterward. The attackers proclaimed to their victims, “You must be raped because you are Chinese and non-Muslim.”

And because of that, because the perpetrators were Muslim and the victims non-Muslim, the whole thing was quickly swept under the rug.

I Searched For You

I spotted this on Brigid’s ‘Home On The Range’ blog, posted by Plainsman (one of her readers).

It touched me for some reason, though like most blokes I’m not big on poetry.

 

I searched for you, though not well
In my youth and naïveté.
Some vague idea but could not tell
What I hoped to find some day.

In vane I searched but could not find
As the course of my youth did run.
A blithe spirit to make mine
With love of forest and the gun.

A Consort to woo and win
To share my love and life.
A lover, companion, soul mate, friend,
My children’s mother and a wife.

I saw you in the oceans foam
Of storms that racked my soul.
When I stood watch and dreamed of home
You held at bay the creeping cold.

In Alberta Clippers, heavy snow
I searched in mountains and in rain,
In swamps, which only hunters know
I sought you, though in vain.

I searched for you through mundane toils
And the million trials of life
I knew the failures and the spoils
Through joy and bitter strife.

These mattered not if we had shared
A life of passioned grace.
I knew your spirit, heart and soul
But never saw your face.

My whole life I sought you in its maze,
And it is, alas, my cursed fate.
To find you in my autumn days
Born so many years too late.

I’ve had my times of longing for a life partner, and there’s a couple of ladies I loved with all my heart, but who unfortunately never felt the same about me (Ann, I still miss you).    There’s never been any hard feelings though, as I always knew I was fairly damaged by past experiences.    God has done an amazing work of healing me, though.
