Miss Oklahoma Gets Tough AZ Law Question — Winner Gets A Pass?

Monday, May 17th, 2010

Miss Oklahoma gets a hard, provocative question about the Arizona Illegal Immigrant law but the Arab-American winner, Miss Michigan USA Rima Fakih, is not asked whether she would denounce Hezbollah — the major terrorist organization from her family’s native country, Lebanon.

Ace is all over the fact that the winner of the Miss USA pagent is a Muslim woman — nothing wrong with that. But,

But I don’t have to believe this woman to be a terrorist or terrorist-supporter to believe that if we’re going to be asking difficult questions of beauty pageant contests, we can and should be asking them if they support murder or not.

Well — maybe it won’t matter so much after all? The NY Daily News has this:

Miss Michigan, who made history Sunday night as the first Arab-American to win the Miss USA beauty pageant, won a pole dancing contest in 2007 hosted by local Detroit radio morning show Mojo in the Morning.

In a series of photos posted on the radio show’s Web site, Fakih is seen provocatively working her way up and down a stripper pole while wearing a blue tank top, bottom-grazing red shorts and a pair of high heels. Another photo shows her wearing a bra stuffed with dollar bills.

I agree with Ace that it’s probably a good thing to “sexualize” Muslim women — maybe that can empower them to fight back against the heinous treatment of the fairer sex in Islamic cultures. However, I’m getting tired of the double standards of these pageant producers that feel like it’s their duty to sabotage and denigrate contestants that don’t tow the “Progressive” political line!

Oh well, if for any reason the winner can’t fulfill the duties of being Miss USA, the crown will go to the first runner up.

You never know . . .

Bat Yeor On The Rise Of The New Caliphate — That’s OIC For Short

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

[H/t: Watchers Council]

EU CaliphateGeert Wilders, Netherlands filmmaker, parliamentarian and promoter of Western Civilization, has recently been denied entry into no-longer-so-Great Briton. Why? Because his continued stand against Islam’s intrusion into and attempts to supplant Western European culture is not being well tolerated by the OIC, (Organization of the Islamic Conference.) Also, because his own government is criminally prosecuting him for his pro-Western activities. Bat Yeor, author of Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide and Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis explains:

The OIC’s aim is to punish and suppress any alleged Islamophobia, around the world but particularly in Europe, and it has been a leader in creating the conditions that made the U.K.’s Wilders ban possible.

The OIC is one of the largest intergovernmental organizations in the world. It encompasses 56 Muslim states plus the Palestinian Authority. Spread over four continents, it claims to speak in the name of the ummah (the universal Muslim community), which numbers about 1.3 billion. The OIC’s mission is to unite all Muslims worldwide by rooting them in the Koran and the Sunnah — the core of traditional Islamic civilization and values. It aims at strengthening solidarity and cooperation among all its members, in order to protect the interests of Muslims everywhere and to galvanize the ummah into a unified body.

The OIC is a unique organization — one that has no equivalent in the world. It unites the religious, economic, military, and political strength of 56 states. By contrast, the European Union represents half as many states and is a secular body only, and the Vatican — which speaks for the world’s 1.1 billion Catholics — is devoid of any political power. Many Muslims in the West resist the OIC’s tutelage and oppose its efforts to supplant Western law with sharia. But the OIC’s resources are formidable.

The organization has numerous subsidiary institutions collaborating at the highest levels with international organizations in order to implement its political objectives worldwide. {…}

In a word, the OIC seeks to become the reincarnation of the Caliphate.

Yeor goes on to state that, “In its efforts to defend the “true image” of Islam and combat its defamation, the organization has requested the UN and the Western countries to punish “Islamophobia” and blasphemy.” Also, that “[Wilder’s] crime is maintaining that Europe’s civilization is rooted in the values of Jerusalem, Athens, Rome, and the Enlightenment — and not in Mecca, Baghdad, Andalusia, and al-Kods.”

Wilders is the receiver of death threats — no surprise there — and now even his own government is siding with the Islamic hoard against him. His denial into Briton is another signal that our common-language ally is not very healthy, either.

There aren’t many Geert Wilders left in Europe. Wonder how many are left over here?

Lock & load, anyone?

Lock & Load!
“Dude — Caliphate this!”

The Honor Killing of Asiya Z. Hassan

Monday, February 16th, 2009

[Updated:]


Hassan & wife

I’m a bit slow on this one but it still bears commenting about. Last Thursday Aasiya Z. Hassan, wife of the prominent Muslim businessman Muzzammil Hassan was killed by beheading.

The killer? Good ol’ prominent Muzzammil, of course.

Why? Evidently because she had the temerity to try to divorce this Islamic TV magnate and got a restraining order to keep her safe from the violent SOB.

Was this murder committed in Saudi Arabia? Somalia? Iran? Pakistan? Sounds logical — why not try Buffalo, New York? From the Chesler Chronicals: Beheaded in Buffalo: The Honor Killing of Asiya Z. Hassan

On February 13, 2009, in Orchard Park, a suburb of Buffalo, 44 year-old Muzzamil Hassan, a prominent Muslim businessman was arrested for having be-headed his wife, 37 year-old Aasiya Z. Hassan. Yes, he beheaded her. Aasiya’s crime? She dared to obtain an order of protection which forced her violent husband out of their home.

We are now sadly familiar with some high profile Islamic beheadings of infidels in Muslim lands; Daniel Pearl, Nicholas Berg, immediately come to mind. Sadly, we are also familiar with the practice of beheading, dismembering, burying alive, and stoning Muslim (and sometimes Christian) women to death in Muslim lands. But this took place in a suburb of Buffalo, New York, in America, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.

She goes on to relate why this “honor” killing in Buffalo is so important.

Muzammil Hassan was an educated, powerful, creative, and living in freedom in the United States. In fact, he may have viewed himself as a spokesman or even role model for other healthy, assimilated, Muslims who also live here.

In 2004, Muzzamil Hassan founded Bridges TV, an English-language Islamic network to combat alleged anti-Muslim bias in the American media. {…}

Hassan considered himself a role model for “healthy, assimilated, Muslims”, and so he slaughtered his wife by hacking off her head, like a farmer would kill a chicken that was doomed to be tonight’s dinner.

Where is the cry of outrage from C.A.I.R.? Where are the calls from the “healthy, assimilated, Muslim” community for Hassan to pay the price for butchering his wife?

[Crickets chirping.]

I’m just sayin’ . . .

[Update]

My buddy Laer at Cheat-Seeking Missiles notes that this story isn’t showing up on “CNN, ABC, CBS – or even the home state paper, the NY Times. (MSNBC does have the story.)” In a related post he addresses the fact that the NY Times has featured a story about a church killing in Tenn. three (3) times but not the beheading of a New York woman by her husband, a media mogul that is trying to shed a better light on Muslims in America. Laer writes:

The Chmielewski theory that the NYT doesn’t bother with local crime stories elsewhere falls apart here, since two killed with a shotgun, even in a church, isn’t as newsworthy as one person killed by beheading, Muslim or not. No, what makes it newsworthy is that Adkisson had a “stated hatred for the liberal movement.” Had a Unitarian shot up a Baptist church because of a “stated hatred of the conservative movement” – newsworthy as that would be on its face – rest assured the NYT wouldn’t have covered it.

The conclusion is irrefutable: The NY Times will take any opportunity it can to discredit conservatives, particularly conservative Christians, and it will avoid any opportunity to paint Muslims in a negative light.

The sad fact is that along with hatred of conservatives, Dhimmitude is alive and runnin’ rampant at the New York Times.

Fisher-Price Doll Says, “Islam Is The Light”?

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

Islam is the light dollI was checking out some blogs that I’ve lost track of and stumbled across this story at Gates of Vienna. Evidently there is a talking doll on the market, Fisher-Price Little Mommy Real Loving Baby Cuddle and Coo Doll, and one of its cute little coos is, “Islam is the light.”

Wow! Way to go Mattel (owner of F-P). A grassroots campaign, MAMA (Moms Ask Mattel for Accountability), is trying to gets these chatty little dears off the market, off store shelves or at least have warning stickers placed on the packages to warn shoppers what they could be buying.

Lots of controversy brewing here, and Mattel keeps digging an ever deeper hole. Head over to MAMA to hear slowed down versions of sound clips recorded from purchased dolls and decide for yourself.

Here’s the MAMA mission statement:

WHO WE ARE: Moms Ask Mattel for Accountability – MAMA -is a public education effort by concerned families to protect children from being invited to join Islam, without their parents’ knowledge or permission. Mattel, the largest toy maker in the world, is still selling a toy that says “Islam is the Light” – the Little Mommy Real Loving Baby Cuddle & Coo Doll, in spite of protests by parents, media and store owners. We ask Mattel to recall the toy immediately during the 2008 Christmas season. If Mattel will not recall the toy, we ask retailers to remove it from store shelves. If retailers keep selling the toy, we ask them attach the MAMA labels to the toy packaging, so parents are not subject to what may be deceptive advertising by omission of materially important information about the toy’s risks.

{…}

WE ARE TAKING ACTION: MAMA has sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commissions asking them to require Mattel to recall the doll immediately, or to require Mattel and retailers to label the doll to fully disclose the information that it says “Islam is the light.”

Join our campaign to get this toy recalled by Mattel, or if retailers insist on carrying it, to get labels placed on the toy so parents and grandparents know what they are buying for their children. Truth-in-advertising for this toy is of material importance to the post-9/11 consumer, especially to the post 9/11 parent who purchases a toy in absence of any warning that the toy advocates Islam to young children.

MAMA’s been at this since October. Due to the focus on the election cycle I missed it entirely. If you’re buying a doll for your daughter, granddaughter, niece or just a friend’s child, be careful what you buy. Unless, of course, you’re A-OK with a loved toy telling your little girl, “Islam is the light.”

Dhimmis in the USA — Taxpayer Funded Islamic Education?

Wednesday, April 9th, 2008

Got a tax-payer funded Muslim religious school in your state or district? Evidently they do in Minnesota! From StarTribune.com columnist Katherine Kerston:

Recently, I wrote about Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TIZA), a K-8 charter school in Inver Grove Heights. Charter schools are public schools and by law must not endorse or promote religion.

Evidence suggests, however, that TIZA is an Islamic school, funded by Minnesota taxpayers.

TIZA has many characteristics that suggest a religious school. It shares the headquarters building of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, whose mission is “establishing Islam in Minnesota.” The building also houses a mosque. TIZA’s executive director, Asad Zaman, is a Muslim imam, or religious leader, and its sponsor is an organization called Islamic Relief.

Students pray daily, the cafeteria serves halal food – permissible under Islamic law — and “Islamic Studies” is offered at the end of the school day.

{…}

TIZA’s operation as a public, taxpayer-funded school is troubling on several fronts. TIZA is skirting the law by operating what is essentially an Islamic school at taxpayer expense. The Department of Education has failed to provide the oversight necessary to catch these illegalities, and appears to lack the tools to do so. In addition, there’s a double standard at work here — if TIZA were a Christian school, it would likely be gone in a heartbeat.

TIZA is now being held up as a national model for a new kind of charter school. If it passes legal muster, Minnesota taxpayers may soon find themselves footing the bill for a separate system of education for Muslims.

Dhimmi alert! Dhimmi alert!

Sure sounds like public funded religious education to this ol’ Okie. If the Southern Baptists tried something like this they’d probably send out the FBI and the National Guard to shut ’em down lickety split!

Scotland’s Dhimmis Say “Hey — They No Eat, You No Eat!”

Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

[h/t: Dennis Prager’s radio show]

Oh brother! Can’t wait to see this crap start happening out here in SoCal. You just KNOW that the People’s Republic of Santa Monica will be straining what little sense that they have trying to be the first on this side of the pond to be this tolerant of Muslim sensibilities. Will be hard though to do something as ridiculous and stupid as this groveling policy toward Scottish Muslims and their empty, growling stomachs during Ramadan.

HOSPITAL staff in the Lothians have been told not to eat at their desks to avoid offending Muslim colleagues during Ramadan.

NHS Lothian has advised doctors and other health workers not to have working lunches during the 30-day fast, which begins next month.

The health service’s Equality and Diversity Officer sent an e-mail to all senior managers, giving guidance on religious tolerance.

This includes ensuring Muslim staff are given breaks to pray, and time off to celebrate Eid at the end of Ramadan.

It is understood they also advised hospital managers to move food trolleys away from areas where Muslims work.

Mercy! Can’t make any poor Muslims that are practicing their religion and fasting during the days of Ramadan feel bad, now can we? As they are saying about this at JBlog Central:

The population of Scotland is just over 5 million.

The Muslim population in Scotland numbers around the 40,000 mark.

Yup it appears terrorism does work.

Ain’t that the truth!

Me? I think it’s time for a ham sandwich!
