anlyzing the news with new eyes: go Denmark!!!
just to show i do know where the good stuff is buried, i also read the the Daily Mail, because it is one of the few papers in Britain that consistently publishes articles examining problems in Britain brought about by the general lack of will to say NO to the islamists. case in point is THIS article discussing new bonds authorized in Britain
A new sharia law controversy erupted last night over Government plans to issue special "Islamic bonds" to pay for Gordon Brown's public-spending programme by raising money from the Middle East.dudes, the end is near in europe. if you value your freedom, get the hell across the atlantic NOW while you still can. avoid canada though, because even if it is America's hat, it is a european style hat.
Britain is to become the first Western nation to issue bonds approved by Muslim clerics in line with sharia law, which bans conventional loans involving interest payments as "sinful".
The scheme would mark one of the most significant economic advances of sharia law in the non-Muslim world.
It will lead to the ownership of Government buildings and other assets currently belonging to British taxpayers being switched wholesale to wealthy Middle-Eastern businessmen and banks.
The Government sees sharia-compliant bonds as a way of tapping Middle-East money and building bridges with the Muslim community.
But critics say the scheme would waste money and could undermine Britain's financial and legal systems
i've been paying more and more attention to what is going on in europe over the last 4 years. it started when john kerry made such a big deal about aligning ourselves with the european elite. that "elite" is comprised of the so-called 68-ers. some of the characteristics of this group range from appeasement to avoid conflict at any cost, to a loudly expressed hatred of America. the fact that most of the european societies are in rapid decline, probably setting themselves up for life under sharia law, doesn't appear to make even the slightest bit of difference. norway and sweden, two countries held up as shining examples of enlightened societies, have all but handed over the deed to their country in a craven attempt to avoid stirring up the muslims in their countries.
Britain has their own worries. the archbishop of canterbury came out last week saying that it is inevitable britain will have sharia law. and there are whole sections of that country that are no longer under british rule, per se. neighborhoods throughout britain are now no-go zones unless you are muslim. and there are those so afraid of being seen as anything but purely politically correct that they will accept unbelievably unsocial behavior from the muslims. these people will attack anyone that complains about the heavily unfair and biased treatment of "real" british citizens at the hands of these invaders.
want to see how sympathies lie? want to see how biased the BBC is? an example from a recent article about the Danish cartoon flap:
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.
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.
what i find humorous is that you can tell the writer was having a hard time putting the next sentence in, but without it, the whole point of the article would be lost:
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.source
Two of the men, who are not Danish citizens, are due to be expelled to Tunisia rather than put on trial.
the attempted pressure treatment has started. the "oh woe is us" bully them until they give up thugs have piped up:
"A condemnation and apology would help convince the Iranian people that Denmark's authorities had distanced themselves from the action, Iran's parliament said in a letter to Danish MPs."
thankfully, the Danes have begun to show they are no longer going to be bullied about by a minority group that is inimical to their way of life. this country has seen the murder of Theo Van Gogh, and the threats and vilification of Ayaan Hirsi Ali. the chance of a murderous attack on anyone that speaks against the muslims, excuse me, islamists, in europe is so high, that all too many are stuck in the appeasement mode. the Danes are quickly becoming the pariahs of the old school stick our heads in the sand, appease them and they'll go away european elite. and i say, good for them.
Nine members of Denmark's foreign affairs committee were due to arrive in Iran on Monday for a three-day trip focusing on human rights and the Islamic Republic's nuclear programme.source
"We are not the ones to apologise," said Villy Soevndal, the leader of Denmark's Socialist People's Party.
"If anyone needs to apologise for freedom of speech, human rights, imprisonments, executions and lack of democracy, it is the Iranians."
Denmark's foreign minister has backed the parliamentarians' decision not to travel.
and lastly, here's another example of why i'm becoming more and more enamored with the Danes (beside the fact that one of my grandfathers was dutch):
Mr Wilders says his film will show the Muslim holy book is an inspiration for murder.source.
But the Iranian justice minister says it is an unnecessary attack on what Muslims regard as the holiest of things.
He said the motivation behind the film was satanic and urged the Dutch government to stop its screening.
Mr Wilders has already been advised that he may have to leave the country for his own safety.
But the government has so far refused to intervene, saying the issue is one of freedom of expression.
you know, when a raft of movies came out depicting Christ in other than the "accepted" version, such as in The Last Temptation of Christ, i don't recall anyone firebombing or stabbing to death marty scorsese for directing the film here in this country. yeah, there was a lot of teeth gnashing and chest thumping. but no knife pinning a multi-page screed into his chest, ala Theo Van Gogh. i doubt there is another eurabian country that will show this movie, for fear of reprisals. and let me stress, if you haven't figured it out already, that if i have to fear reprisals or death for speaking my mind, it's time to get out the firearms. because in this country, you can still nominally speak your mind. but even here, there are sacred cows that can get you tossed in the slammer, because the mindless minions of political correctness have determined that some opinions and speech can be classified as hate speech. sorry. speech is speech. if you can express your opinions, then so can anyone else. even if they are morons.
i am firmly convinced every american should read the following two books to get an american perspective on what is going on in eurabia today. you will have a really tough time finding anything like this coming from european writers for many reasons. one reason: they are afraid of being murdered for saying anything against the onslaught of jihadis in eurabia. another: it is becoming easier and easier for islamists to use the courts to sue or have jailed anyone that says negative things about islam/islamists. in italy, you can and will be prosecuted for "hate speech". same for many other of the "enlightened" countries. when the main chant in protests by islamists is "Fuck free speech", we need to sit up and take note!
