FITNA – The Movie

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on March 28, 2008


Fitna – The Movie
Screen Shot of the Video INtroYes, the Movie is highly Islamophobic. Fully on par with any propagandamovie made by Josef Goebbles. The quoted Imams, Muslims and Mediaarticles in the Movie are fully on par with any Extreme Fundamentalist Xian or Jewish Clergy, believers and what is written about them in the media. I could easily substitute every quote from the Quran given inthe movie with similar or worse from both Torah and the XianScriptures. I could make a Xianophobic or Judeophobic Movie – simpleand easy. That has been done, it will be done in the future. Nothing new there, my friends.The Quran, as the Bible or Torah, is subject to interpretation. If one choose to read it literally one will find all kinds of horrible things in it, as can be done with the Bible or Torah. But why should we judge Islam any different than we judge Judaism or Xianism? Why should we deem the Fundamentalists of Judaism and Xianism less dangerous than Islam? Why should we read the Quran any different than we read the Bible or Torah? We seem to have forgotten that Extreme Fundamentalist readings of Torah and the Bible have lead to, and will continue to lead to the same kind of violence as that described in “Fitna” –

Christian terrorism

Jewish Terrorism

Timothy McVeigh

Meir Kahane

To mention a few we all know about. We don’t claim Xianism orCatholicism as a violent religion because of Timothy McVeigh did or Judaism as a religion of terror based on what Meir Kahane did. Therefore it’s absurd to claim that Islam to be a religion of terror based on 9/11 or other violent attacks committed by people professing to be Muslims.

Judge the Extremist Interpretation of the Quran, not the Quran itself or all the Muslims in the world.

SoB

Due to threats, the Movie has been removed from LiveLeak, it can be found here on Google

Stalwart Service for U.S. in Iraq Is Not Enough to Gain Green Card

By Karen DeYoung

Washington Post Staff Writer

Sunday, March 23, 2008; A01

During his nearly four years as a translator for U.S. forces in Iraq, Saman Kareem Ahmad was known for his bravery and hard work. “Sam put his life on the line with, and for, Coalition Forces on a daily basis,” wrote Marine Capt. Trent A. Gibson.

Gibson’s letter was part of a thick file of support — including commendations from the secretary of the Navy and from then-Maj. Gen. David H. Petraeus — that helped Ahmad migrate to the United States in 2006, among an initial group of 50 Iraqi and Afghan translators admitted under a special visa program.

Last month, however, the U.S. government turned down Ahmad’s application for permanent residence, known as a green card. His offense: Ahmad had once been part of the Kurdish Democratic Party, which U.S. immigration officials deemed an “undesignated terrorist organization” for having sought to overthrow former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

Ahmad, a Kurd, once served in the KDP’s military force, which is part of the new Iraqi army. A U.S. ally, the KDP is now part of the elected government of the Kurdish region and holds seats in the Iraqi parliament. After consulting public Web sites, however, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services determined that KDP forces “conducted full-scale armed attacks and helped incite rebellions against Hussein’s regime, most notably during the Iran-Iraq war, Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom.”

Ahmad’s association with a group that had attempted to overthrow a government — even as an ally in U.S.-led wars against Hussein — rendered him “inadmissible,” the agency concluded in a three-page letter dated Feb. 26.

But of course. The US has never given anything to anyone without first sucking them dry. Saman Kareem Ahmad is no difference. Oh, no. It is a wonder that so many Americans are shocked that so many non-Americans dislike America. To most of us America is synonymous with the American Government who would “reward” their allies by calling them “terrorist” even though they have spent years and risked their life to help the US.

An unconditional Green Card should be the least of this man’s rewards. It doesn’t matter that individual Americans are good people – America Stinks to high heaven

Dutch Islam film website ‘shut’

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on March 24, 2008


Geert Wilders A website that a Dutch right-wing politician was planning to use to release a film expected to be fiercely critical of Islam has been suspended.

The US hosting service, Network Solutions, said it was investigating complaints that it may have breached guidelines on hate language.

Dutch politician Geert Wilders says the 15-minute film describes Islam as “the enemy of freedom”.

The planned release has sparked angry protests in many Muslim countries.

The Dutch government has disassociated itself from Mr Wilders’ views, but there are fears the film will spark protests similar to those that followed the publication in Denmark two years ago of cartoons seen as offensive to Muslims.

The film has already been condemned by several Muslim countries, including Iran and Pakistan.

Hate messages

Mr Wilders’ film is entitled Fitna, an Arabic word used to describe strife or discord, usually religious.

Mr Wilders wrote a commentary in a Dutch newspaper on Saturday.

“The film is not so much about Muslims as about the Koran and Islam. The Islamic ideology has as its utmost goal the destruction of what is most dear to us, our freedom,” he wrote in De Volkskrant.

Geert Wilders has ignored pleas to shelve his project

“Fitna is the last warning for the West. The fight for freedom has only just begun,” he said.

He had been using Network Solutions to promote the film.

But on Sunday, Network Solutions said it had received a number of complaints that were under investigation.

It said the site was suspended until it was established whether the content of the site violated Network Solutions’ terms of acceptable use.

They include “material that is obscene, defamatory, libellous, unlawful, harassing, abusive… hate propaganda” and “profane, indecent or otherwise objectionable material of any kind or nature”.

Mr Wilders has had police protection since Dutch director Theo van Gogh was killed by a radical Islamist in 2004.

I don’t like it when people are censored, not even in the case of hate speech, on the other hand – I don’t want hate speech around of any kind. I have always felt that education is better than censorship.

I can also see the hypocrisy in this – this specific site is shut down, because it might offend Muslims, but sites like JewWatch.com and Ziopedia.org are not shut down, and yet they ARE offensive to Jewish people. I guess that’s what you get when there’s a risk you might be bombed unless you comply.

I mean that last – I really do. The Radical Extremist element, in this case within Islam, is holding the world hostage through the use of violent protests against Freedom of Expression. I don’t care that Geert Wilders is a Right-Wing Extremist, he has a right to share his opinion – when he does, I promise I will be there and object to it in a civil manner, but I DO NOT accept Civil and Human Rights to be held hostage at gun point so a few Extremists are not offended.

Dr Phil’s Islamophobia…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on March 9, 2008


I just saw a show from last November… about the relationship of American Katherine(18) and Palestinian Abdullah(22).

A Daughter In Danger?
A Daughter In Danger? II
Katherine Returns
I have seen only the two first parts, but there were things I found awkward already there… The Palestinian bloggers found even more awkward and upsetting things…KABOBffest: He said Palestine..

About Mahtab and Betty Mahmoody (why is she still using his last name?)
Without my daughter
Vilified in Hollywood, father still without his daughter

Does anyone know if he has his daughter again? Original author: Ketutar, used with permission.

I actually watched all three episodes, and I read the entire KABOBfest Blog
Dr. Phil is a mainstream media figure, which as we know, sparingly use the word “Palestine.” Why would he incessantly use the word if not to substantiate any negative images already in the minds of most Americans about Palestinians?
I have to agree with the assessment made the blog entry author, Will. It becomes even more obvious as the show(s) continues. What is sad about this particular Dr Phil Show, is that Dr Phil seems to have bought the whole prejudiced view of Arabs, and Palestinians, pandered to the world by America. He can’t distinguish the Gaza Strip from the West Bank, and he consistently makes it out to be suspect that Abdullah hasn’t gotten that visa already after 2 years. He even let’s his guest speculate on the possibility that Abdullah might be a terrorist, because of this “failure” to produce a visa. Doesn’t he know that with the current hatred by the US Authorities for anyone coming from the Middle East not being Jewish, it’s virtually impossible to get a visa unless you are heavily loaded with money?
Throughout the entire second show, Dr Phil uses every method of manipulation in the book to lure Katherine back home to the US WITHOUT Abdullah.
Example: ““Katherine, how about the end of the week? Let’s do it Friday. You’ve both said it’s a good idea. Will you let me make the arrangements and bring you home Friday? You can go back if you want to. I’m just saying, come home, look your family in the eyes, let them take you to McDonald’s,” Dr. Phil says.Katherine smiles at the mention of her favorite restaurant. “Oh, man, I want to go home really bad, yeah. I just want to talk about it with Abdullah first. But I do want to come home. I just don’t know when.”
I am sorry, but Katherine is an adult, yet she is being treated like a child.
The way he treats Abdullah is even worse:
““And then we’ll work with you about working with the embassy and getting a visa,” Dr. Phil tells Abdullah.”
A promise he doesn’t keep, and have no intention of keeping when he makes it. The lying bastard:
““Well, I don’t think anybody here believes a word he said, right?” Dr. Phil asks. He tells Tamara, “And the reason I stopped you is because at this point, I’m trying to get her home. So I didn’t want to create discourse. I totally agree with what you’re saying. I mean, come on, two years? We’ve talked to the embassy. We’ve been all over this. It’s not an instantaneous thing, and post 9/11, the challenges are greater, particularly from the Middle East, but it’s doable. It’s absolutely doable. I have one goal right now. My immediate goal is to get her back on U.S. soil, get her back home when he isn’t here, and then we’ll put you on her like a duck on a June bug. But the main thing is to get her here because we don’t know what’s going on over there.”
Lying to 22-year-old simply because he is a Palestinian and an Arab. It becomes very clear as he doesn’t counter Katherine’s mother when she says:
“I believe that [Abdullah] has been lying because there’s some reason why he can’t come here, and I’m wondering if it’s not because he may be a terrorist.”
Right. He is Palestinian. He is an Arab, a Muslim. Despite the fact that it’s clear by what he says about his family, that they live in Jericho, which is in the West Bank, and is a SAFE place, the show, including Dr Phil consistently paint a picture of immediate danger to Katherine by placing her on the Gaza Strip.
Just what does Dr Phil think has happened? Abdullah has more or less kidnapped Katherine or acted like a predator:

“And enticing her over the Internet and then having her go over there, where she is shut off from her family, is the wrong way to do this.”

I am shocked and horrified over the Islamophobia, dishonesty and hypocrisy displayed by a man who demand rigorous honesty from others:
““Abdullah can’t hear us right now, and do you really care what people in the Gaza Strip think about you?” Dr. Phil asks Katherine. “I don’t often say this kind of thing, but I think I’m entitled to the truth! I think I have earned the right to have the truth. Do you realize how many people we’ve had working on getting you back here safe? And I don’t think you even know how close to harm’s way you have been.

Why shouldn’t she care about Abdullah and his family? And how is Dr Phil entitled to the truth, he who has lied and manipulated an inexperienced 18-year-old deliberately and knowingly to accomplish HIS own ends. How in anyway was Katherine in danger that the people of the West Bank isn’t accustomed to? Why is Katherine more important than Abdullah and his family?. And what harms way? Really? WHAT HARMS WAY? The answer is obvious – that of being with a Muslim, an Arab, a Palestinian.

Shame on you Dr Phil, you lying, manipulative, bigoted, hypocritical Islamophobe!

Sanctimonius Bullshit Part 2

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 4, 2007


After I commented on Sanctimonious Bullshit in response to the guy who wrote the original quote, I decided that my response was deserving of a Blog Entry all of its own.

“Thanks for the comment. You made some very interesting assumptions. First of all, I’m not “an adherent of one of the most murderous religions on earth.” No more than I am an adherent for racism, just because many in this nation used to be (and many still are) racists. Do you disown your family because of past mistakes they’ve made? Could Christianity not have changed for the better over the centuries? I denounce the Crusades and other murderous acts of Christians. They were not “of God.” That’s not what Jesus taught. So, no, I won’t be saying that we can’t judge “Xtianism” by a “few bad eggs” during the past 2000 years. I will be saying, “Judge Christianity for what it is TODAY.” No different than you wanting to be judged for who you are today, not in your past.”

Did I say one word about the Crusades? No I did not. Because I am judging Xianism for what it is today – and it is still murderous. It still preaches the Global conversion of Jews, Pagans, Muslims and others, to whom it’s equal to spiritual suicide to convert to a religion not of their ancestors. Unfortunately this command to commit spiritual murder is in the Greek Scriptures, along side a whole lot of other Anti-other-religions speech.

If you believe that Jews, Muslims, Pagans, Hindus, Buddhists and all others who are not Xians should convert to Xianism, then you are an adherent of one of the most murderous religions on earth – TODAY.

I have been trashed by ordinary, non-hostile Xians for using the terms “many Xians” the same way you used many in “So here’s a religion in which many of its followers are seeking to kill Christians” – so somehow it is a generalizing term – besides during the last 6 years to date Xian soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan have killed more Muslims than Muslims have killed Xians in the last 1400 years…

I would not have objected if you had said “Radical Islamists”, but you didn’t – you generalized.

Now, what is good for the goose should be good for the gander, Nuh?

“Will you deny that a growing number of Islamics are extremists who wish to rid this planet of anyone who is not Islamic?”

Actually, I would – I would say that is a fear filled and Islamophobic hyperbole. Why, because the number of Radical Islamists during the last 1400 years have been constant, just as it has been constant when it comes to Radical Xianists. What have changed though is the way we communicate in the World, both Virtually and in 3-D. Before 9/11 the US didn’t bother to monitor the Arab World – but nothing have changed since 9/11 – just the way people get around.

Saying that people are not “of G-d” because they misbehave when it comes to your own religion and not extending the same “excuse” to the “Muslims” that do not represent Islam is sanctimonious.

I will comment more, but now I have to relinquish the computer to my wife -)

next installment:

By the way, how many radicals of 300 million does it take to create a dangerous situation?

Isn’t this just another way of spreading the Islamophobic hyperbole, I think it is – I could counter with saying that a radical fraction of 2 billion Xians is as dangerous – and name those too – the people adhering to the message of the book series “Left Behind”, which among other things teach children to kill non-believers, the members of the American Family Association, and other more or less militant, aggressive Xian Fundamentalist “ministries”. Now, those are Radical Xianists, and by all means let’s not forget the White Supremacist Groups, that also profess to be Xians, and the groups that blow up abortion clinics, murder doctors and nurses that are willing to perform abortions…good Xian kids who go gay-bashing as a weekend pass time – or for that matter people who think like Ann Coulter “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.”

“Third, I have read about judging, AND I pray about it. You had no problem quoting Jesus in Matthew 7:1, but you didn’t finish the quote:

“For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged.”

Jesus qualifies our judging. He says that the way we judge others is the way he’s going to judge us.”

Now if we just read it – and not attribute the judging to Yeshu ben Miriam – what do we get? Right – as you judge others you will be judged by them – what goes around comes around – what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

If I’m judged according to my blog statement, I don’t think I have much concern. Praying for a religion that has a growing radical element is NOT judging them.

But you are judging them – by deeming that they need your prayers – how the h-ll do you know that? You don’t. You assume they do, judged by your standards, and your ideas of what Prayer is – of which you can know nothing, neither of us do. The very idea that other people are in need of your prayers is arrogant and presumptious.

It’s praying for them. My prayer for Islamics is that they WILL be a peaceful religion and stop those within their movement who seek to radicalize it.

Well, you sure aren’t helping things by putting out Blog entries that only serve to heat things up, rather than cool them down, through Islamophobic hyperbole and generalizations. On the contrary, you are only adding to ideas like that of Ann Coulter.

By the way, that’s the same prayer I often lift up for Christianity. I wouldn’t call that hypocrisy. I’d call it consistency.

That you can do, but leave the rest of the world alone. Really.

Condemning Antisemitism, applauding Islamophobia…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 2, 2007


Islamophobia – unreasonable or completely justified?

Islamophobia is a fear or prejudice towards Muslims and the religion of Islam.

However, this fear or prejudice is completely and certainly justified.[…]

In Germany, the state of Baden-Württemberg openly discriminates against Muslim immigrants, making Muslims, and only Muslims, take a test of loyalty – answering questions about attitudes to Homosexuality, Dress sense, Domestic violence and religious issues. This has been referred to as Islamophobic and racist.

But this is necessary for this group and in fact should be similarly done in this country. When French Muslims try to burn half of Paris, when British-born Muslims bomb their own subways, when Spanish Muslims destroy their own railways, and NO OTHER GROUP or NATIONALITY does likewise, is it not only prudent but absolutely essential that we question Muslims on loyalty? As to domestic violence, is it not a requirement of their religion to murder their wives or daughters if there has been a perceived ding against their Honor? Aren’t most complaints of servant abuse against Muslim masters who have no respect or regard for women?

Now, compare that to this Blog entry – which the guy used to comment on my Page on Benjamin Freedman’s 1961 Speech: 13 things to blame on the Jews in which he derides people, organizations, Arabs and others for blaming things on the Jews that they are not responsible for.

I’d call this a serious case of hypocrisy and double standard.

This guy doesn’t realize that his reasoning around Muslims is exactly the same as the reasoning Antisemites start out with, BEFORE they start making up things to blame on the Jews.

One part of this Entry is especially chilling and enlightening:

“When French Muslims try to burn half of Paris, when British-born Muslims bomb their own subways, when Spanish Muslims destroy their own railways, and NO OTHER GROUP or NATIONALITY does likewise, is it not only prudent but absolutely essential that we question Muslims on loyalty? – compare to the reasoning in France before and during the Dreyfus-Affair:

Anti-Semitism was pervasive in France during the 1890s. With the formal inception of the French Third Republic in 1871, in the 1880s nationalist politicians such as Georges Boulanger, Edouard Drumont (founder of the Antisemitic League of France) and Paul Déroulède (founder of Ligue des Patriotes) sought to capitalize on the new fervor for a unified Catholic France. French Jews were described by the author George L. Mosse as a “nation within a nation

One of the most common and prevalent accusations against Jews in both Europe and the US, over the time of history, is that of “Dual Loyalty”:

“A classic example of political dual loyalty is a person who is a dual citizen or who is an immigrant living in one country, although the term is sometimes used in connection with people that have religious, cultural or political ties to a political interest other than the country of their primary residence. As opposed to ethical dual loyalty, which is often a self-described situation, political dual loyalty typically appears as an attack or a pejorative accusation designed to target and discredit a particular person or group, and to call into question the loyalty of that group to the country where they reside. As such, the accusation of “dual loyalty” is often used or co-opted by racist or xenophobic groups within a country, regardless of the original intent of the accusation.

What we have here is a guy who is presumably pointing to Antisemitic conspiracy theories and condemning them while at the same time suggesting that Muslims (note the generalization…) are guilty of something traditionally being pinned on the Jews…

Bernie – I am impressed at how you mange to put both your feet in your mouth while having your head up your own ass so far that you must be eating yesterday’s lunch.

Sweaty Feet with a side order of Yesterday’s Lunch.

Bon Appetite!

Quran in the crapper – A Hate Crime?

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 1, 2007


Quran

You know, there’s a fine line between trying to get people to be sensitive and legislating in favor of people to avoid offending them. I could understand if someone beat a Muslim with a Quran. That’s a hate crime. Desecrating it? That’s hateful, but it’s not a crime. We can burn flags, we can piss on a statue of Jesus, we sure as hell can put Qurans in the toilet. I don’t care if it was intended to “intimidate” someone. There was no threat of violence, it was just a Quran in the crapper.


We cannot turn a blind eye to the message sent by a Quran thrown in the toilet, and pretend that it’s just a prank or doesn’t have meaning. Because it does, especially if there is an over all presence of religious or ethnic prejudices and phobias being circulated in society in general.“Where they burn books, they soon start to burn people…”

Throwing a Quran in a toilet might not be a violent hate crime, but it is certainly an expression of hate, and that is how it is understood by Muslims. It cannot be understood any other way in the Anti-Muslim climate that is prevalent in the US after 9/11. Hell, hating Muslims is almost a requirement to be considered a patriot.

One of the comments on the blog entry I quoted above reads:

“A hate crime is, partially, an act of terrorism.

Just wait and follow me a minute.

Let’s take your stereotypical hate crime. Klan members take cross, burn it on black family’s lawn. What happens? It sends a message to the family in the home, and the black families around that home: “You’re not welcome, we hate you, and we can very well do very bad things to you.”

Terrorism by its nature is meant to strike terror into the hearts of others who are similar to the victims who get hit. It’s to send threatening message to mess up their way of life and intimidate them.

Putting a holy book in a toilet is not intimidating. It’s immature.”

It’s very interesting that this commentator doesn’t draw the logical consequences of what she is saying – using one message to say:”We hate you…” is a hate crime, but not another, hm – how is telling someone “We hate you…” not intimidating, especially if the holiest item to them is used to say “We hate you”? If someone decided to burn Torah scrolls or throw tzitziyot in the toilet, I sure would read that as message that I as a Jew is hated for simply being a Jew.

Unless this is seen as a hate crime and dealt with as such, what will it be next – throwing Muslims in the toilet?

These two people need a couple of lessons in empathy and imaginative thinking. They also need to have their Liberal Cards revoked, because they are a shame to Liberals all over.

Sanctimonious Bullshit

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 29, 2007


Prayer For Muslims

This morning, as I was listening to my local Christian radio station, they were announcing the coming of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month. The Christian community was being encouraged to pray for the Muslim people during this time.

That struck me as being very interesting. I understand that many people believe Islam to be a religion of peace, but I do not agree. I think most Muslims want to live at peace with the world, but the growing radical movement wants the destruction of all other religious groups. So here’s a religion in which many of its followers are seeking to kill Christians, but Christians are being asked to pray for them.

Sounds like the upside-down kingdom Christ talked about while on earth. Let’s pray hard!

“But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5:44)!


*lol*What a load of sanctimonious bullshit! Coming from an adherent of one of the most murderous religions on earth. Next he will be saying that we cannot judge Xtianism by a “few bad eggs” during the last 2000 years – yet that is exactly what he is doing with Islam.He is judging an entire religion and all its adherents as “not peaceful” on account of a fraction of 300 million Muslims…How about reading about not judging instead of praying?“Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. ”

Islamophobia as a way of life…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 22, 2007


From

 

It’s All Hog Wash!

It is not a religion of peace, it is a religion of extreme hate. How can a peaceful person sanction members of their faith violently killing innocent men, women, children and even babes in arms. Even worse they will sanction the sacrifice of their own children in the killing of people they don’t even know. How can anyone harbor that much hate? Because they are told that only through “Jihad”, through holy war, can they hope to enter heaven. This is instilled within them from a young age and is combined with the incessant teaching of hate. If they can’t quite bring themselves to be a violent martyr or murderer they become a demonstrator or a passive enabler. A few become silent “moderates”.

 

If all this weren’t bad enough keep in mind it is also the prime tenant of Islam that everyone in the world must become Muslim and be subject to Shari’ah, Islamic law. Most people resist Christian evangelism simply by refusing to listen. How do you resist Islamic evangelism? The first step is to recognize the hog wash about Islam being a peaceful religion.


This is one of the most hateful, inaccurate and Islamophobic blogs I have ever come across. Thank you George W Bush for making it not only acceptable to be this Islamophobic, but indeed making it a way of life.

I read this and shiver, because it is reminiscent of  the kind of inflamed religious propaganda that f.i Martin Luther spewed about Jews or the Iranian President are spewing about Jews. I am sorry if this offends any Xtian, but this is exactly why so many people are opposed to any kind of Evangelical Xtianism – its hatred for anything that is not Xtian and its violent teaching about how to oppose that which is not Xtian.

For years I have been debating Xtians about the violence, hatred and bloodshed perpetrated against Jews, Pagans,  Muslims and Atheists by Xtians using the Xtian Doctrine as a weapon. Over and over I have been told that “Xtianism cannot be judge by the actions of some few mislead professors…” by Xtians of all kinds – also the kinds represented by the quote above.

Then I come across this kind of hatred – pulling all of Islam and all Muslims into one big bunch of hate filled  bloodthirsty monsters – and this is not the only place – I have seen it in Xtian Bible Study Groups on-line, in news items and in other blogs, and cannot help but feel that those who told me not to judge by the actions of a few are nothing but hypocrites.

Any religious doctrine can be distorted, any religious path can be used to further megalomania and fascism – however peace-loving it really is.

If Buddhism had been the prevalent religion among the terrorists that blew up WTC and the trains in London and Madrid, George W Bush and his hate-filled Disciples would have been ranting about what violent hog wash Buddhism is.

As it is Islamophobia has become a way of life among Right-Wing, Evangelical religious people, and I doubt it’s going to change any time soon.
