We could have done it years ago. We could have beat these totalitarian, ultra conservative, ‘religious’ bastards when they rioted and burned and murdered with synthetic outrage over the Danish Cartoons of Jyllands-Posten.

We could have beat them just by laughing at their demands on how to limit our thought and speech and printing the cartoons everywhere. Showing them on TV. Printing T-shirts with them and similar ones.


'100 lashes if you don't die laughing' and 3 other Muhammad controversies

CSMonitor 3 November 2011
By Tom A. Peter

The offices of a French satirical magazine were bombed early today, after the periodical published an issue about the Arab Spring with a caricature of the prophet Muhammad. The magazine featured the Muslim prophet as a "guest editor” for the magazine, Charlie Hebdo, threatening "100 lashes if you don't die of laughter!”

Images of the prophet Muhammad are forbidden in Islam and have proved a source of controversy in recent years. Most disputes have stemmed from Western publications operating in countries with free speech and large Muslim immigrant populations.

Non-Muslims bear burden in Islamic tax law

Money Jihad 3 November 2011

More from the Islamic department of discriminatory taxation.  Let’s jump in a time portal through Bernard Lewis’s The Arabs in History to look back at taxes under the Umayyad dynasty:

The Arabs took over only state lands and the lands of enemies of the regime.  Other landowners who recognized the new government retained effective freehold rights on payment of certain taxes.  The confiscated lands were registered and administered by the state.  Muslims were allowed to buy land outside Arabia and many were granted lands in a form of lease known as Qati’a (pl. Qata’i’).

Video: CNN manages to turn the aggressors into the victims. Again. Posted on November 2, 2011 by Eeyore

Vlad Tepes 3 November 2011

It starts out quite well on the bombing of Charlie Hebdo. Even refers to Mohamed as Islam’s founder, rather than "the prophet Mohamed’ which I find to be disgusting from the mouth of a non-Muslim. Then they somehow manage to turn it all around and make a preposterous moral equivalence that at the end, makes Muslims the victim of what is clearly an Islamic crime against all Westerners and freedom of speech.
