Dispatches From The Religion Of Peace!

21 April 2010 @ 20:09

ITEM #1…

From Fox News and the AP, we learn:

A watchdog group objected Tuesday to an evangelist’s invitation to speak at the Pentagon next month, saying his past description of Islam as “evil” offended Muslims who work for the Department of Defense and the appearance should be canceled.

Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said inviting evangelist Franklin Graham to speak May 6, the National Day of Prayer, “would be like bringing someone in on national prayer day madly denigrating Christianity” or other religious groups.

It would also endanger American troops by stirring up Muslim extremists, Weinstein said.

On it’s face that last sentence reeks of a cowardice that we’ve seen all to frequently since 09/11 from those who are afraid to confront the Muslims.  However, there’s something else that motivates Weinstein: the Military Religious Freedom Foundation [sic] is Leftist organization [Joe Wilson is a member] that basically wants to eradicate all religious expression in the US Armed Forces if it is Christian or Jewish.  Like your typical Leftist organization it pretends to be fighting for one thing when it is actually seeking a more malign result.  Discover The Networks has a full dossier here.

As for what the Reverend Graham said:

After the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Graham said Islam “is a very evil and wicked religion.” In a later op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal, Graham wrote that he did not believe Muslims were evil because of their faith, but “as a minister …. I believe it is my responsibility to speak out against the terrible deeds that are committed as a result of Islamic teaching.”

Graham hasn’t changed his views on Islam, said his spokesman, Mark DeMoss.

Good for him for speaking the truth that so many fear to say.

ITEM #2…

From the New York Daily News, Michael Sheridan reporting:

The creators of “South Park” better watch their backs.

That’s what a radical Islamic group based in New York “warned” on their Web site, RevolutionMuslim.com, using violent imagery to express their unhappiness over the depiction of the Prophet Muhammed in a bear suit on the 200th episode of the long-running Comedy Central series.

The episode never actually depicts the Prophet Muhammed, but indicates him as a character wearing a bear suit.

“We have to warn Matt [Stone] and Trey [Parker] that what they are doing is stupid,” a posting on the Web site stated on Tuesday, according to reports.

“They will probably end up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show,” it noted, referencing the Dutch filmmaker who was murdered in 2004 over a documentary he made that addressed violence against Muslim women.

“This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them,” the statement reportedly concluded.

Despite claims that they did not seek to invite violence against Stone and Parker, the site also reportedly revealed where the “South Park” creators work, and included a sermon calling for punishments for blasphemy against the Muslim religion.

The site no longer appears online, and a phone number associated with the group has since been disconnected.

The author of the post, Abu Talhah al Amrikee, is a thug and a liar.

Here is a screenshot from the episode that I captured over at SouthParkStudios.com:

Good for Trey and Matt.  Somebody has got to stand up and say ‘Enough!’ to Islamic intimidation and Western cowardice.

FYI: Part 2 of the episode airs tonight at 2200 EST on Comedy Central.

    I came across a set of images on a website (some years back, when I was looking for the cartoons the NYTimes wouldn’t publish) that were far more graphical and insulting. Big Mo as a gay hooker c/w KY dispenser, in lurid color – stuff of that nature. Dozens of them in this one chap’s collection. Norwegian? Swedish? Dansk? (Hardly any English in the set.) No doubt, gooooogle won’t link them today.

    On item 2: trying to fight a pair of successful satirists is like wrestling with the muddiest pig in the sty.

    You might win, but you’ll get dirty and the pig will like it.
