Muhammad Caricature Watch: al-Zawahri – “Prophet Muhammad and Jesus Are Not Sacred Anymore.”

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Culture, Muhammad Caricatures, Politics, Religion

Al-Qaida’s deputy leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, is seen in this Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2005 file image made from videotape posted on Internet. In a video broadcast Saturday, March 4, 2006 on Al-Jazeera, al-Zawahri accused the West of insulting Islam’s prophet, charging that the Prophet Muhammad and Jesus ‘are not sacred anymore.’

ASSociated Press: In Tape, Al-Zawahri Blasts Cartoons

Al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader Ayman al-Zawahri criticized the West for its insult to Islam’s prophet, complaining in a video broadcast Sunday on Al-Jazeera that the Prophet Mohammed and Jesus “are not sacred anymore.”

Referring to the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that have been printed in a number of European newspapers, al-Zawahri said: “They did it on purpose and they continue to do it without apologizing, even though no one dares to harm Jews or to challenge Jewish claims about the Holocaust nor even to insult homosexuals.”

Oh, so, now al-Zawahri, terrorist and mass murderer extraordinaire is a holy man worried about sacred portrayals of the Prophet Muhammad and Jesus Christ?

And then he goes on to compaining about folks NOT insulting or challenging the Jews, the` Holocaust and homosexuals.

What a hypocritical MORON!

The Quotes:

“The insults against Prophet Muhammad are not the result of freedom of opinion but because what is sacred has changed in this culture,” he said. “The Prophet Mohammed, prayers be upon him, and Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, are not sacred anymore, while Semites and the Holocaust and homosexuality have become sacred.”

“In the eyes of the West, they have the right to occupy our land, rob our wealth and then insult us and our religion, and humiliate our Quran and our prophet, prayers be upon him,” al-Zawahri said. “After that they give us lessons in freedom, justice and human rights.”

Yeah RIGHT!

And the United States hijacks airliners to destroy the New York World Trade Towers, sponsor suicide bombers who kill innocents and establish terrorist camps to poison thousands?

NOPE……..

And al-Zawahri you DO NEED a lesson in freedom, justice and human rights because you practice or espouse NONE of these inalienable rights.

A worthless speech by human Al-Qaeda garbage……

Stay tuned…..

ABC News: New Details about UNC-CH Attack

The driver of an SUV that plowed into a group of pedestrians at UNC-Chapel Hill on Friday told police it was retribution for the treatment of Muslims around the world, according to ABC News.

Was this related to the Muhammad Caricature FLAP at the UNC Chapel Hill student newspaper, The Daily Tarheel?

It happened around noon Friday in front of Lenoir Hall on the campus, in a common area known as the Pit. Paramedics took six people to UNC Hospitals. Five had been released by Friday evening and the sixth was not expected to be admitted.

Officials say none of the people were seriously injured. Three refused treatment at the scene.

Chapel Hill police say they arrested the suspect, Mohammed Reva Taheriazar, 23, of Chapel Hill, shortly after the incident. Several witnesses were able to give police the rented Jeep Cherokee’s license plate number.

Police said they would charge Taheriazar, a psychology major who graduated from UNC last semester, with several counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

This Islamic MORON should get the maximum penalty under the law.

LOCK him away for about 25 years.

Do they have chain gangs in North Carolina? It would be too good for this criminal.

Sources say Taheriazar told police he was seeking retribution for the treatment of Muslims around the world, according to ABC News justice correspondent Pierre Thomas. Taheriazar apparently told police he tried to rent the biggest SUV he could find to use in the attack.

Michelle Malkin has A JIHADIST IN NORTH CAROLINA

Taheriazar is a native of Iran and a December 2005 UNC graduate, according to the Raleigh News and Observer.

Bob Owens is updating the story.

Muhammad Caricature Watch: Pakistani Protest Muhammad Caricatures AND President Bush

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Culture, George W. Bush, Muhammad Caricatures, Politics, Religion

Pakistani protestors burn the U.S. flag during an anti U.S. rally in Karachi, Pakistan on Friday, March 3, 2006. Anti-U.S. protests erupted across Pakistan with crowds burning American flags, chanting ‘Death to Bush’ and scuffling with police just hours before the U.S. leader was to arrive for visit.

ASSociated Press: Pakistanis Protest Bush Visit, Cartoons

Anti-U.S. protests erupted in several Pakistani cities Friday, with crowds burning American flags, chanting “Death to Bush!” and scuffling with police shortly before the U.S. president was to arrive for a two-day visit.

Other Pakistanis demonstrated against cartoons of Prophet Muhammad as radical Islamic groups called a strike that shut shops and businesses some towns.

The government promised ironclad security for Bush’s visit, with one official saying hundreds of army commandos and paramilitary troops would be patrolling the capital.

“We have made foolproof arrangements for the safe stay of President Bush and we do not think there will be any problem,” said Brig. Javed Iqbal Cheema, a senior Interior Ministry official who also coordinates with U.S. authorities on counterterrorism issues.

Police in the southern city of Karachi used tear gas and clubs to stop about 1,000 people from marching on the U.S. Consulate, witnesses said.

The stone-throwing crowd came within 200 yards of the building, which was the target of a suicide bomb attack Thursday that killed an American diplomat and three others. The protesters burned U.S. flags and chanted, “Pakistani nation wants head of Bush!”

Pakistani protestors burn the U.S. flag during an anti U.S. rally in Karachi, Pakistan on Friday, March 3, 2006.

Oh wonderful!

The Taliban and Al Qaeda sympathizers can protest 2 for 1. But, the Musharraf government has promised security and the end to the violence.

Pakistani protestors run for shelter as police use tear gas to disperse them during an anti U.S. rally in Karachi, Pakistan on Friday, March 3, 2006.

In other areas of Pakistan the Mullah’s and their student groups were out in full force.

In Rawalpindi, some Pakistanis chanted “Killer go back” and “Death to America” during the 30-minute protest. One demonstrator had a bloody forehead, and police stuffed at least five others into a van, an Associated Press photographer on the scene said.

The demonstrators were supporters of the Imamia Students Organization, a Shiite Muslim group. Some trampled on the U.S. flag, while others carried Bush portraits with his face crossed out in red.

In Chaman, a southwestern town on the Afghan border, between 4,000 and 5,000 people protested peacefully. They shouted, “Go back Bush! Bush, dog!” and “God is great!”

A similar rally by about 3,000 people took place in the northwestern city of Peshawar.

About 300 university students rallied in Islamabad, burning an effigy of Bush. Some carried signs that said, “Go back, go back big Satan Bush.”

And do you see any Americans protesting Pakistanis in the United States? or burning their Mosques, religious shrines? Or burning down their businesses?

NOPE……..and now we know why President Musharraf has aligned his goverment with the GREAT SATAN AMERICA – it is called LIBERTY.

Pakistani protestors carry placards reading, ‘Ready to sacrifice on your Dignity,’ during a rally to condemn the publication of cartoons depicting the Islamic Prophet Muhammad printed by some Western newspapers, Friday, March 3, 2006 in Lahore, Pakistan. Security was tightened across Pakistan on during a strike called by radical Islamic groups to protest Prophet Muhammad drawings, with most shops and businesses closed in several cities, officials said.

Muhammad Caricature Watch: Manifesto Against ISLAMISM – Updated

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Culture, Muhammad Caricatures, Politics, Religion

The Muhammad Caricatures. The individual caricatures are here.

Published in today’s Indland Jyllands-Posten (Denmark):

MANIFESTO: Together facing the new totalitarianism

After having overcome fascism, Nazism, and Stalinism, the world now faces a new totalitarian global threat: Islamism.

We, writers, journalists, intellectuals, call for resistance to religious totalitarianism and for the promotion of freedom, equal opportunity and secular values for all.

The recent events, which occurred after the publication of drawings of Muhammed in European newspapers, have revealed the necessity of the struggle for these universal values. This struggle will not be won by arms, but in the ideological field. It is not a clash of civilisations nor an antagonism of West and East that we are witnessing, but a global struggle that confronts democrats and theocrats.

Like all totalitarianisms, Islamism is nurtured by fears and frustrations. The hate preachers bet on these feelings in order to form battalions destined to impose a liberticidal and unegalitarian world. But we clearly and firmly state: nothing, not even despair, justifies the choice of obscurantism, totalitarianism and hatred. Islamism is a reactionary ideology which kills equality, freedom and secularism wherever it is present. Its success can only lead to a world of domination: man’s domination of woman, the Islamists’ domination of all the others. To counter this, we must assure universal rights to oppressed or discriminated people.

We reject « cultural relativism », which consists in accepting that men and women of Muslim culture should be deprived of the right to equality, freedom and secular values in the name of respect for cultures and traditions. We refuse to renounce our critical spirit out of fear of being accused of “Islamophobia”, an unfortunate concept which confuses criticism of Islam as a religion with stigmatisation of its believers.

We plead for the universality of freedom of expression, so that a critical spirit may be exercised on all continents, against all abuses and all dogmas.

We appeal to democrats and free spirits of all countries that our century should be one of Enlightenment, not of obscurantism.

ASSociated Press: Pakistani Kids Rally Over Prophet Cartoons

About 5,000 children chanting “Hang those who insulted the prophet” rallied in Pakistan’s largest city on Tuesday in the latest protest in the Islamic nation against the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

The children, ages 8 to 12, burned a coffin draped in U.S., Israeli and Danish flags at a traffic intersection in the port city of Karachi as police in riot gear looked on.

The rally was organized by Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan’s largest Islamic group. The children, some wearing school uniforms and headbands emblazoned with “God is great,” were released from schools to take part.

Wonderful……

Do the islamic radical fundamentalists have NO shame?

Nope…..involve their children in this HATE campaign. Either do as WE say or put the kids in the street…….

And these are REALLY protests over insulting caricatures? NO WAY!

President Bush will be travelling to Pakistan shortly………

Stay tuned……….

Pakistani children chant slogans during a rally in Karachi February 28, 2006. Opposition Jamat-e-Islami party organised the rally to protest against the publication of cartoons and caricatures depicting the Prophet Mohammad in European newspapers.
