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 …”
- “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.Posted by quillpen on 2006 10 29 at 07:24 PM • permalink

- 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.Posted by arrowhead ripper on 2006 10 29 at 08:09 PM • permalink
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.
- 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.Posted by Mr Hackenbacker on 2006 10 29 at 08:27 PM • permalink

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…Posted by Spiny Norman on 2006 10 29 at 08:28 PM • permalink
Point being, in the minds of far too many people, no war is “necessary, moral or legal” unless it is “last ditch”.

- Moslems should should have stayed in their homeland of Mecca, and not like Hitler and Tojo go starting a war.Posted by stackja1945 on 2006 10 29 at 08:33 PM • permalink
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.
- 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.
- Oh, and is everyone ready for Halloween?
- “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.Posted by Crusader rabbit on 2006 10 29 at 08:44 PM • permalink
- I think if people started behaving “rashly”, then the Ropers might shut up be beconme civilized.Posted by Wimpy Canadian on 2006 10 29 at 09:50 PM • permalink
- Now THAT is prime cartooning.Posted by Nilknarf Arbed on 2006 10 29 at 10:58 PM • permalink
Yeah, the pigs cracked me up.Leak’s butcher cartoon here, go back one.
- 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.
#9 Spiny says: I hate it when I hit “submit” instead of “preview
Yeah, submit sounds so..well, ISLAMIC
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?Posted by Mr. Bingley on 2006 10 30 at 07:46 AM • permalink
