Moderate Muslims do exist.

Moderate Muslims in Denmark speak out.

More and More Moderate Muslims Speak Out in Denmark

Dozens of Danish Muslims are joining the network of moderate Muslims, the Demokratiske Muslimer (Democratic Muslims). About 700 Muslims have already become DM members and 2,500 Danes have expressed their will to support the network. The initiative has caused anger among the Danish imams and their leader, Ahmad Abu Laban, who have referred to the moderates as “rats.” The imams feel that they are beginning to lose their control over part of the Muslim population.

Moderates such as Kamran Tahmasebi say they have had enough of fanatic Islamism and its intimidation of the Muslim immigrants in Denmark. “It is an irony that I am today living in a European democratic state and have to fight the same religious fanatics that I fled from in Iran many years ago,” Mr Tahmasebi says. He came to Denmark as a refugee in 1989. Today he works as a social consultant and is very grateful for the life Denmark has made it possible for him to have. He says he no longer wants to keep a low profile to avoid attracting the attention of the imams. The cartoon affair was an incentive for him to stand up and warn against the Islamist imams in Denmark, whom he says are damaging the integration process with their misleading criticism of Danish values and norms.

Cartoon Protests in NYC

Hate Speech in NYC against the cartoonists.

Nothing was burned down, nobody was killed.
I guess this crowd is still satisified with the 3,000 dead from 9/11/01.

Tall 'Afar sez THANKS to US Army

Via email from a 3rd ACR family member, via Grayhawk, via Scott Ott
a letter from the Mayor of Tall 'Afar, Iraq to the men and women of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment and their families.
In the Name of God the Compassionate and Merciful

To the Courageous Men and Women of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who have changed the city of Tall' Afar from a ghost town, in which terrorists spread death and destruction, to a secure city flourishing with life.

To the lion-hearts who liberated our city from the grasp of terrorists who were beheading men, women and children in the streets for many months.

To those who spread smiles on the faces of our children, and gave us restored hope, through their personal sacrifice and brave fighting, and gave new life to the city after hopelessness darkened our days, and stole our confidence in our ability to reestablish our city.

Our city was the main base of operations for Abu Mousab Al Zarqawi. The city was completely held hostage in the hands of his henchmen. Our schools, governmental services, businesses and offices were closed. Our streets were silent, and no one dared to walk them. Our people were barricaded in their homes out of fear; death awaited them around every corner. Terrorists occupied and controlled the only hospital in the city. Their savagery reached such a level that they stuffed the corpses of children with explosives and tossed them into the streets in order to kill grieving parents attempting to retrieve the bodies of their young. This was the situation of our city until God prepared and delivered unto them the courageous soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who liberated this city, ridding it of Zarqawi's followers after harsh fighting, killing many terrorists, and forcing the remaining butchers to flee the city like rats to the surrounding areas, where the bravery of other 3d ACR soldiers in Sinjar, Rabiah, Zumar and Avgani finally destroyed them.

I have met many soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment; they are not only courageous men and women, but avenging angels sent by The God Himself to fight the evil of terrorism.

The leaders of this Regiment; COL McMaster, COL Armstrong, LTC Hickey, LTC Gibson, and LTC Reilly embody courage, strength, vision and wisdom. Officers and soldiers alike bristle with the confidence and character of knights in a bygone era. The mission they have accomplished, by means of a unique military operation, stands among the finest military feats to date in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and truly deserves to be studied in military science. This military operation was clean, with little collateral damage, despite the ferocity of the enemy. With the skill and precision of surgeons they dealt with the terrorist cancers in the city without causing unnecessary damage.

God bless this brave Regiment; God bless the families who dedicated these brave men and women. From the bottom of our hearts we thank the families. They have given us something we will never forget. To the families of those who have given their holy blood for our land, we all bow to you in reverence and to the souls of your loved ones. Their sacrifice was not in vain. They are not dead, but alive, and their souls hovering around us every second of every minute. They will never be forgotten for giving their precious lives. They have sacrificed that which is most valuable. We see them in the smile of every child, and in every flower growing in this land. Let America, their families, and the world be proud of their sacrifice for humanity and life.

Finally, no matter how much I write or speak about this brave Regiment, I haven't the words to describe the courage of its officers and soldiers. I pray to God to grant happiness and health to these legendary heroes and their brave families.

Mayor of Tall 'Afar, Ninewa, Iraq

Gagged or Google

Atlas Shrugs asks:

Is Google censoring the blogs?

First do no evil right? Thinking and communicating thoughts is the essence of humanity.

Attempts to muzzle Free Speech

liberals are moving to re-establish the Fairness Doctrine, a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rule that required broadcasters to offer equal time to opposing views of those expressed on the airwaves. The result would be a government bureaucracy monitoring what goes out on the air and making broadcasters and commentators reluctant to discuss controversial political issues.
Don't even think about it.
Well, you can think about, you try it, but I'll will oppose the effort.


Daily Illini

Words from the brave editor:
As an editor of a college newspaper, I cannot claim to be a champion for free speech and at the same time restrict it from running its course. My gut has been turning for days questioning how to address this issue. It is only proper that you, the public, are allowed to think for yourselves.

Within the coming days, I hope to promote a dialogue on the campus and in the community as to how people feel about this issue. I encourage everyone to write a letter to the editor and let us know what you think.

Exercise your First Amendment right and don't be afraid to say something unpopular. As citizens, we have a right to use that freedom.

Acton H. Gorton is a senior in Communications and the editor in chief of The Daily Illini.
We need more editors with this kind of courage.

Grow up

FoxNews Reports on the continuing riots over the Danish cartoons.
PESHAWAR, Pakistan  — Gunfire and rioting erupted Wednesday as tens of thousands of people took to the streets in several Pakistani cities during the country's third consecutive day of violent protests over the Prophet Muhammad cartoons. Three people were killed, including an 8-year-old boy.
Grow up people.
You are acting like cry-babies.

Via My Pet Jawa from a Memri Transcript
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: The affront to the honor of the Prophet of Islam it is in fact an affront to the worship of God, and to the seeking of truth and justice, and an affront to all the prophets of God. Obviously, all those who harm the honor of the prophet of Islam...

Crowd: Death to Denmark.

Death to Denmark.

Death to Denmark.

Death to Denmark.


Ahmadinejad: As the representative of the great Iranian people, I call upon all free people of the world – Christians and Jews – to rise together with the Muslims and not to let a handful of shameless Zionists, who have been defeated in Palestine, to harm the sanctity of the prophets.

Extra Crispy KFC

Thousands of protesters rampaged through two cities Tuesday, storming into a diplomatic district and torching Western businesses and a provincial assembly in Pakistan's worst violence against the Prophet Muhammad drawings, officials said. At least two people were killed and 11 injured.

Security forces fired into the air as they struggled to contain the unrest in the eastern city of Lahore, where protesters burned down four buildings housing a hotel, two banks, a KFC restaurant and the office of a Norwegian cell phone company, Telenor.

Chill, they were cartoons. And nobody FORCED you to view them.

Unanswered questions regarding cartoons

Posted by Laurence Simon asks:

What if someone were to produce a Connect-The-Dots that had resulted in a picture of Mohammed? Who would be to blame for the depiction of Mohammed: the person who made the Connect-The-Dots or the consumer who picked up a pencil and connected them?

See the other questions at IMAO

Claims of abuse

BBC reports new charges that British Soldiers abused Iraqi citizens.  
The 6th report of abuse against British troops in Iraq since 2003.
The British government is investigating and one person has already been arrested.
When will the attacks by Muslims (4224 attacks since 9/12/01), be stopped. 
When will the Arab Press express outrage at the assaults on innocent people in the name of their Prophet.

Islam the Intolerant, eh!

Thank God. Bush is President

Al Gore says US treatment of Arabs - "Wrong".

Damn, if Gore was President, the US would be a Muslim nation by now.

Does Al Gore really think that getting cozy with the nation that produced most of the 9/11 hijackers will increase his popularity in the USA? If he does, he is crazier than I thought.

Message to Al, Appeasement does not work.

Things To Think About

The Neo Con Blogger(TM)

JOHN GLENN (ON THE SENATE FLOOR)Mon, 26 Jan 2004 11:13 (Verified as true on Some people still don't understand why military personnel do what they do for a living. This exchange between Senators John Glenn and Senator Howard Metzenbaum is worth reading. Not only is it a pretty impressive impromptu speech, but it's also a good example of one man's explanation of why men and women in the armed services do what they do for a living.This IS a typical, though sad, example of what some who have never served think of the military.

Senator Metzenbaum (speaking to Senator Glenn):"How can you run for Senate when you've never held a real job?"

Senator Glenn (D-Ohio):"I served 23 years in the United States Marine Corps. I served through two wars. I flew 149 missions. My plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire on 12 different occasions. I was in the space program. It wasn't my checkbook, Howard; it was my life on the line. It was not a nine-to-five job, where I took time off to take the daily cash receipts to the bank."

"I ask you to go with me as I went the other day to a veteran's hospital and look those men with their mangled bodies…look them in the eye, and tell THEM they didn't hold a job!You go with me to the Space Program at NASA and go, as I have gone, to the widows and Orphans of Ed White, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee and you look those kids in the eye and tell them that their DADS didn't hold a job.You go with me on Memorial Day and you stand in Arlington National Cemetery, where I have more friends buried than I'd like to remember, and you watch those waving flags. You stand there, and you think about this nation and you tell ME that those people didn't have a job? What about you?"

For those who don't remember, During WWII, Howard Metzenbaum was an attorney representing the Communist Party in the USA. Now he's a Senator!

If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English thank a Veteran.

more on the Counter Protest in Paris

Brigade de l'Argent des Fran�ais

But very quickly, the crowd began to surround and threaten us. Some started a passionating debate: on one side, those supporting an immediate stoning, on the other side, those who wanted to avoid a public massacre. Meanwhile, the police forced us to leave and took us away in a police van to let us go far away from the demonstration.
These peaceful demostrators needed police protection from the followers of Islam - The Religion of Peace.

More proof that the true name is 'Islam the Intolerant'.

Free Speech allows for poor word choice

There is much buzz this weekend about comments that conservative author/columnist Ann Coulter made at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday.

Ann Coulter used the term "raghead".

And Liberal Blogger Steve Gilliard, whose most notable work is referring to Lt Gov Michael Steele as Sambo, is outraged.

Both 'raghead' and 'sambo' are smear words, they are both intended to insult the person referred to.

I defend the right of both Steve and Ann to use such langauge.
I defend the right of anybody to verbally criticize them for using those words.

Free Expression allows for both good and bad expression.
