George W. Bush on Islam’s victimhood culture:

If it’s not the Crusades, it’s the cartoons.

And always with the rioting and the chanting and the burning that follows most every perceived insult. Which makes amusing this plea from West Australian Muslim leader Ameer Ali:

He is urging people not to react to the mufti’s comments.

“Let’s ask the community not to take the law into their own hands and do anything rash …”

    1. “I have never learned to fight for my freedom. I was only good at enjoying it.” A fitting epitaph for the peace at any price crowd.

    1. I’m so tired of this Crusades crap. The Crusades were a RE-conquest of lands conquered by the Islamists. It’s as ridiculous as their bitching about the Spanish Reconquista.

    1. #1, the thing is, he’ll end up having to fight not only for his freedom but his life, whether he wants to or not.  And by then, it will be mostly a losing battle against hopeless odds.

    1. I’ve never understood why people are prepared to fight a last ditch battle when they could have fought it in the first ditch.

    1. But we have to react like this!  When someone insults our cat meat, likening it to hussies and women who raise and lower, we white Christians must seethe and fume, screech and rant, burn down embassies and slit throats.  It’s in our holy book, the White Pages.  So… if you don’t want us to kill you, don’t make us angry.

    1. O.k.
      Would-be Tennessee (US) Senator Harold Ford says that Republicans don’t love God (link), and the College of William and Mary decides that the cross at the Wren Chapel is optional (link), and youths torch a woman in Marseilles (link), and Al Hilaly is defended by an Australian politician who asks that “people not . . . react to the mufti’s comments.”
      Nope. I just got really angry. I don’t think that the non-reacting request is going to register.

    1. If I had the money, I’d launch satellites beaming the gay, drunk, islamic channel with extra bacon 24×7.  Or porn blimps (make them gay too – you know they secretly love it) over the prophet’s tomb.

      It would give them something to focus their anger on besides, well, everything single thing on the planet.

      I’ve never understood why people are prepared to fight a last ditch battle when they could have fought it in the first ditch.

      And you think we hear enough of the “unnecessary, immoral and illegal war” crap now

    1. continued…

      Point being, in the minds of far too many people, no war is “necessary, moral or legal” unless it is “last ditch”.

      I hate it when I hit “submit” instead of “preview”.

    1. Moslems should should have stayed in their homeland of Mecca, and not like Hitler and Tojo go starting a war.

      Because people are too worried about enjoying their freedoms rather than fighting for them.

      Bloody hell, if a gay European humanist can see this, why not the barking crowd of moonbats.

      Like the moonbats at the ARIAs* last night. Midnight Oil and Bernard Fanning pontificating about the shit things happening in Australia and the world and pleading with people to be more like John Butler and write protest songs.

      Or that numbskull from Britain with her pop song about no cause being worthy enough to go to war.

      These people are dangerous, with a cause celebre and no fucking concept of history and real politick.

      It really scares me that these are the kind of people who our young people have as role models, particularly when the education system reinforces much of this bile.

      We need to work on bringing down W’s figure of 25 per cent of people against all wars. If we can get that down to 15 per cent that would be a lot less fucking morons bleating on about disproportionate responses and Islamophobia.

      *Australian music love in.

    1. Jeez guys, the WA guy was right; if we treat the cats meat man as a leper who the ordinary guys of Australia should be repelled by – INCLUDING the ordinary Muslims – he will get the ignorant obscurity he deserves.

    1. Speaking of cartoons, I normally don’t have much time for Howard-hating Bill Leak, of the Australian, but to his credit he is getting stuck into the Sheik, boots and all.  I await the explosion of the Arab street over his cartoon last Saturday (sorry, no link), showing Hilaly as a butcher, with his stock of carcases on hooks, all covered with chadors – including the pigs.

    1. “I’m so tired of this Crusades crap.”

      Let’s give ‘em an 11th crusade.  That’ll give the bastards something to whine about.
      Crusading is healthy exercise, after all and mostly we don’t get enough of that.

    1. Well, what’s “I preview” in Arab? Maybe we should start a new preview-based religion…

    1. I think if people started behaving “rashly”, then the Ropers might shut up be beconme civilized.

    1. Ready for Halloween? It marks the anniversary of my father’s death five years ago. And Melbourne Cup Day is the day we had his send-off. It was the 6th that year. Rather appropriate that I especially remember Dear Old Dad on that day.

    1. Oops
      Go to the link. Click on BLEAK cartoons, then go back one cartoon.

    1. For those who have not read the linked piece yet, a tempting morsel:
      The president’s view is that before it was Iraq it was Israel; with these guys, it’s always something. Sometimes it’s East Timor—which used to be the leftie cause du jour. And, riffing on the endless list of Islamist grievances, Bush concluded with an exasperated: “If it’s not the Crusades, it’s the cartoons.” That’d make a great slogan: it encapsulates simultaneously the Islamists’ inability to move on millennium-in millennium-out, plus their propensity for instant new “root causes,” and their utter lack of proportion.

      Maybe Andrea could slip into her burqa and change the name of the button from ‘submit’ to ‘islam’; heck, it means the same thing, no?

    1. #4, “I’ve never understood why people are prepared to fight a last ditch battle when they could have fought it in the first ditch.”

      The first ditch is too far away.
