Muslims Picket ‘Philadephia Inquirer’ After It Runs Cartoon

NEW YORK On Saturday, the Philadelphia Inquirer became one of the first major U.S. papers to carry a drawing featuring Muhammad — with a lit bomb stuck in his turban — that have sparked riots abroad. On Monday, more than two dozen Muslims offended by that decision picketed the newspaper.
“It’s disrespectful to us as a people,” Asim Abdur-Rashid, an imam with the Majlis Ash’Shura, an umbrella group for mosques in the Delaware Valley, told the Inquirer for a story today. “It’s disrespectful to our prophet to imply that he’s a prophet of violence.”
The group may call for a boycott and a further protest on Friday if the newspaper does not apologize.
But Bennett stood by the decision to publish the cartoon, saying it “is one of the things newspapers do to communicate directly with people” about issues important to all communities.
Few U.S. newspapers have reprinted the cartoon. The New York Times, in an editorial today, noted that it had not carried any of the cartoons and “much of the rest of the nation’s news media have reported on the cartoons but refrained from showing them. That seems a reasonable choice for news organizations that usually refrain from gratuitous assaults on religious symbols, especially since the cartoons are so easy to describe in words.”
Some newspapers have carried links to the cartoon images on their Web sites, however.

Wild Thing’s comment….
I realize there are reactions to actions and in this case violent reactions to publishing the cartoons. However, unless the good guys, take a stand and ban together it shows weakness IMO. Of course it is personal choice but for me I would have to publish them. And t if I did have a newpape, I would publish them along with the ones that are hate filled against Jews. Christians and America. With dates of THEIRS to show they have been doing it for a very long time.

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – U.S. President George W. Bush called Denmark’s prime minister on Tuesday to voice support for the Nordic country, whose embassies are the target of violent protests over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad.

“We agreed that the way ahead is through dialogue and tolerance, not violence,” Rasmussen told a news conference.

Iran Renames Danish Pastries and More On Pastry Wars



ADNKI.com

Iran has decided to rename Danish pastries “Mohammedan” pastry – a new twist in the crisis which has triggered protest by Muslims throughout the world against cartoons of Mohammed first published in Denmark. The name change recalls when some Americans started calling French fries, “Freedom fries” to protest France’s opposition to the United States-led invasion of Iraq.
Iran has recalled its ambassador from Copenhagen, and on Tuesday announced a halt to all imports of Danish products. Demonstrators in Tehran on Tuesday attacked the Danish embassy with stones and petrol bombs, the second such assault in two days.

Hot cross buns too offensive for school
A school in the United Kingdom has banned traditional hot cross buns for fear the religious symbol drawn on the top of each roll might offend some students.
Hot cross buns are normally served during the Easter season, especially on Good Friday. Without the white cross drawn with icing, the treat is just a plain currant bun.
Wild Thing’s comment……
Of course, the “mohammedan” pastries immediately slaughtered the “hot cross buns”!
Will these be next?

Iran’s Khamenei: The Danish Cartoons Are a Zionist Plot

(IsraelNN.com)

The supreme authority in Iran, the chief cleric Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, declared on Tuesday that the cartoons of Islam’s Muhammad published in Europe, which have caused an ongoing and violent uproar in the Muslim world, are a Zionist plot against Islam. The cartoons were Israel’s response to the Islamic Hamas movement’s recent electoral win in the Palestinian Authority, according to Khamenei.
The Associated Press reports that Khamenei told a radio audience that the cartoons are a “conspiracy by Zionists who were angry because of the victory of Hamas.” He was speaking at a ceremony in honor of Iran’s air force for its role in bringing the Islamists to power in Iran.

Wild Thing’s comment…..
Well that makes tons of sense…..NIOT. The cartoons were first printed in October 2005, Hamas didn’t win ’til last month. Europe is only beginning to awaken to their PC/multicultural nightmare and already there are leftists out there calling for censure, rather than fighting for Free Speech.

Wild Thing’s comment……
I love these photos and I am thrilled that some of our troops got to see the Superbowl! I was disappointed though because I thought that maybe, just maybe during half time someone would say something like HI we are linked to Iraq and Thank you Troops!!! So we can do it here.

Thank you Troops and all our Military! We owe you big time!
Stay safe and know there are millions of us that appreciate all you do!….
from everyone here at Theodore’s World blog

Very Baghdad Bob-ish

Yep. here he is again, Hamas leader, Khaled Mashaal, just spouting away

The Nation of Islam Will Sit at the Throne of the World and the West Will Be Full of Remorse
For the full text go here…. Memri org

Hamas Leader Khaled Mash’al at a Damascus Mosque: The Nation of Islam Will Sit at the Throne of the World and the West Will Be Full of Remorse – When it’s Too Late.
We Say to This West… By Allah, You Will Be defeated”
Khaled Mash’al: “We apologize to our Prophet Muhammad, but we say to him: Oh Prophet of Allah, do not be saddened, your nation will be victorious.
“We say to this West, which does not act reasonably, and does not learn its lessons: By Allah, you will be defeated. You will be defeated in Palestine, and your defeat there has already begun. True, it is Israel that is being defeated there, but when Israel is defeated, its path is defeated, those who call to support it are defeated, and the cowards who hide behind it and support it are defeated. Israel will be defeated, and so will whoever supported or supports it.
“America will be defeated in Iraq. Wherever the [Islamic] nation is targeted, its enemies will be defeated, Allah willing. The nation of Muhammad is gaining victory in Palestine. The nation of Muhammad is gaining victory in Iraq, and it will be victorious in all Arab and Muslim lands. ‘Their multitudes will be defeated and turn their backs [and flee].’ These fools will be defeated, the wheel of time will turn, and times of victory and glory will be upon our nation, and the West will be full of remorse, when it is too late.

Wild Thing’s comment………
You know, if they would eliminate about 3,462 “praise Allahs” it would get to the point quicker.
We say to this West, which does not act reasonably “……….Ya, right, burning buildings and rioting over a f’ing cartoon is acting reasonably. Keep stoking that which gets us Americans ready to fight you idiots. We are going to kick some more raghead a@@ here shortly.
Is everybody over there insane? They are burning and killing because of a cartoon? They don’t allow the practice of other religions in their countries? They treat women as property? On the annual trips to Mecca, thousands are trampeled to death almost every year? They live in caves with camels? The men have sex with goats?
And Islam qualifies as a civilization? By whose definition?
Hint: The reason there are no Arabs on Star Trek is … because its in the future. heh heh

Interpol Launches Global Alert for Escaped Terrorists

Interpol
WASHINGTON, Feb. 6, 2006 – The International Criminal Police Organization, known as Interpol, issued a worldwide alert yesterday for 23 prison escapees, including 13 convicted al Qaeda terrorists, according to an Interpol news release.
The criminals escaped last week from a Yemen jail. They include Jamal al-Badawi, a terrorist convicted of masterminding the Oct. 12, 2000, bombing of the USS Cole in Aden, Yemen, news reports said. Terrorists pulled alongside the anchored Cole and detonated an explosive-loaded boat. The blast killed 17 U. S. sailors and wounded 39 others. The two terrorists in the boat also were killed.
Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman today told reporters he’d seen reports about the terrorists’ escape. The U. S. State Department, he said, is among the agencies involved in the matter.
“Interpol is a law enforcement-type organization,” Whitman said. “Clearly, the United States government works in a collaborative way with nations across the globe. ”
Interpol, with headquarters in Lyon, France, has 184 participating nations, including the United States.
“Al Qaeda terrorists have been deemed a serious threat to the entire world community by the U. N. Security Council, by Interpol, and by a wide range of countries,” Interpol Secretary-General Ronald K. Noble stated in his organization’s news release. “Their escape cannot be considered an internal problem for Yemen, alone. ”

Evil Muslims Protests Lead to Deaths

Afghan protesters burn a Danish flag after cartoons depicting caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed were published.

Two killed in Afghan anti-cartoon protest
ABC News Online

Two protesters killed in Afghanistan are believed to be the first deaths associated with the publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed.
Protests have flared across parts of Afghanistan in recent days, as they have in many Muslim countries.
Hundreds turned out in the eastern Afghan city of Mihtarlam and shouted “death to Denmark” and “death to France”.
But when a police a station was targeted, police fired at the demonstrators and one person was killed at the scene.
Another died after being taken to a hospital in the nearby city of Jalalabad.
There have also been protests in Kabul.
Hundreds of people also protested in the southern capital, Kandahar, shouting “death to the enemies of Islam, long life to Islam”, an AFP correspondent said.

Death toll rises……….
Four killed in cartoon protests
BBC News

Four people have died as demonstrations against cartoons satirising the Prophet Muhammad intensify.
Three people were killed when police in Afghanistan fired on protesters after a police station came under attack, a government spokesman said.
In Somalia, a 14-year-old boy was shot dead and several others were injured after protesters attacked the police.
Monday’s deaths were thought to be the first, but officials in Lebanon have now confirmed that a demonstrator died on Sunday after jumping from the third floor of the Danish embassy in Beirut to escape a fire.

Wild Thing’s comment……
So it begins and of course we all know this is only the beginning. With these people there is no end to their violence.
Should the cartoons not have been published? I say YES they should have been published. When a bully gets away with being a bully they do not stop, they get stronger. When the Arab cartoons attacked what happened on 9-11 and attacked the Jews and Christians, President Bush and our troops. Well, this is my opinion, but if they dish it out they better be ready to take it. That does not mean I am naive to think they will sit by and take it as the world has done for a long time in response to the cartoons they (the Arabs etc.) have done.
But we as a people, and our Government and the world needs to stand together as one huge force and say NO to the terrorists, fight back and let them know we will not take their crap anymore. That we will not take their threats, their beheadings, and their terrorism any longer. They are NOT going to rule the world as they keep repeating.

Amnesty International Just LOVES Terrorists

Close Guantanamo, Amnesty urges
from Herald Sun
Feb. 6,2006
Statements from the article………

AMNESTY International has renewed its call for the US to close its Guantanamo Bay detention facility and try or release the prisoners held there.
“The US detention centre at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, is condemning thousands across the world to a life of suffering, torment and stigmatisation,” the London-based rights group said in a statement accompanying a report.
Citing complaints from inmates of mistreatment and abuse, Amnesty also appealed to Washington to “close Guantanamo and open up all US detention facilities to independent scrutiny”, and to investigate allegations of torture.
US President George W. Bush insisted last month that the prisoners were being treated “humanely”.
“Guantanamo is a necessary part of protecting the American people. And so long as the war on terror goes on, and so long as there’s a threat, we will inevitably need to hold people that would do ourselves harm,” he said.

Wild Thing’s comment……

I call for sending terrorist sympathizers to Guantanamo.
So they want to see more of these people back on the streets. Makes a person feel all warm and fuzzy.


Remember how we read about these facts below, I guess that the Amnesty International does not care about the truth! Screw you Amnesty International!!!!
-Not one of these illegal enemy combatant detainee’s
who came from Afghanistan had a Qur’an in his
possession when captured
-A brand new Qur’an in the specific, native language
of each individual was provided to each “enemy combatant”.
-Each illegal enemy combatant detained at Guantanamo is
given three nutritious halal meals (culturally-appropriate and
in accordance with Islamic dietary law) per day. The meals
include all optional condiments.
-Each illegal enemy combatant detainee receives Muslim feast
meals at special times in accordance with Muslim feasts and holy
periods during the year.
-Each illegal enemy combatant detainee has unrestricted access
to Muslim Imams and religious instruction
-Each illegal enemy combatant detainee has a Quibla, a large
green and white sign in his cell which points toward Mecca.
-Each illegal enemy combatant detainee hears Islamic loudspeaker
calls to prayer five times daily.
-Each illegal enemy combatant detainee received a brand new
Muslim prayer cap.
-Each illegal enemy combatant detainee received a brand new
prayer rug
-Each illegal enemy combatant detainee received brand new
Islamic prayer beads.
– Each illegal enemy combatant detainee
received Islamic holy oil.
Each illegal enemy combatant had ALL of this done and paid
for him at US taxpayer expense and this is far, far in excess of
requirements delineated by Geneva Convention Cat. III protocols
on the treatment of Prisoners of War.
