Blogger is p.....!

By Poul Højlund, April 1, 2006

I guess it goes to state that I'm p.....!

I've been reading IslamOnline for some time now, trying to see what it looked like from the other side. It’s what wee demand. To see things our way.

I check in on Arab, Egypt, Yemeni, Iran and Iraq English-newspapers too. What I see the most is an honest job well done, conditions in mind.

But not IslamOnline. It’s deceptive, it’s a mosque disguised as a newspaper.

They have no intension of covering the real world; they don’t want to tell us the facts on what’s going on. First: they don’t bring all the news, just the news that fit. Then thy try to tell you what should be going on - instead of what is going on.

They even run an online Fatwa Shop: skip us a mail; we’ll skip you a fatwa. It's a mosque, not a paper.

They report only from Denmark what fit's the mosque. Victories for Islam in Denmark get big cover. Like veiled leftwing radical Asmaa, now airborne at DR2.

Victory, victory, victory. Big interview. Ending with:
“Islam, however, is not recognized by the state unlike Christianity and Judaism. “

It’s the usual, and it’s a lie. It’s a damned lie used to create hate:
They don’t recognize us.

I’ve told them a couple of times now. They said they would
look into it. They didn’t. Of course they didn’t. How could I be so naïve?

I'll bet all their correspondents in the infidel Europe end that way:
“Islam, however, is not recognized by the state unlike Christianity and Judaism.“

And it’s a damned lie every time. Europe enjoys freedom of faith and freedom of speach and every other single freedom in the history of mankind. We have it all. Islam kills converts.

This too is from IslamOnline online today. Some from the staff report on some dialoguetrip to Denmark:

"Some Muslims, especially young women, told us that they did in fact face a lot of racism. They were subjected to physical abuse in the streets, even though some of them were not wearing the hijab. Some were actually beaten and others had their hijabs pulled from their heads. " ..

Physical abuse in the streets .....? Beaten ....? Hijabs pulled off .....? Not my country.

What they say is this:
"We are Islam the victim. They, the Christian-Jews attack our sisters and brothers in Palestine, in Iraq, in Sudan; and in their own streets they abuse our women. They tear of our sacred veils. They ridicule our prophet. They hate us and they are infidels plotting against us."

Just the little Goebbels-drop every day and we’re getting there.

It’s a damned lie every time, and it is meant to raise hatred against us, the infidels.

That’s why I’m so p…..!

IslamOnline Continues to spread lies on Denmark

From todays mail to IslamOnline:

"Beginning of March this year you answered my mail on false information (scroll down) on Denmark by your correspondent: “We will take it up with him”.

Yesterday he repeated his lie on Denmark by simply quoting his previous sentence.

I conclude: Either You have not done as you stated in your answer - Or You don’t care.

Whatever the reason you are left dishonored as honor goes with words like truth, honesty, doing what you say you want to do, and the alike.

My conclusion is very simple: IslamOnline is part of the Islam mobilization against Denmark and for that purpose utilizing the small lies wherever possible to hide the truth for your readers.

Iran tested Stealth Missile Friday

This is alarming news indeed. Now they only need to complete their uranium enrichment programme to follow their desire for supremacy in the Middle East and far beyond. The missile is more powerfull than the former Iranian missile, ranging 1250 miles. It's a multiple warhead thing with stealth qualities.

Iran says it has test-fired missile

CNN: Friday, March 31, 2006 Posted: 1701 GMT (0101 HKT) TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran successfully test-fired a missile that can avoid radar and hit several targets simultaneously using multiple warheads, the military said Friday. Gen. Hossein Salami, the air force chief of the elite Revolutionary Guards, did not specify the missile's range, saying it depends on the weight of its warheads.

Some Up to Date Facts on Denmark

Denmark finally reaches positive net assets - and ranges number one at the Press Freedom Index

Maybe an odd thing to blog here, but anyhow: for the first time since WW II Denmark has a positive net assets balance. It was announced today by the Central Bank in Copenhagen, and as you may notice, Denmark came from a debt position at almost 50% of GDP in 1988 to a plus at a few percent today.

In 1982 socialdemocrat PM Anker Jørgensen gave up and handed over power to the conservative Poul Schlüter who held office until 1993. His government founded the economic policy, later continued by socialdemocrat PM Poul Nyrup from 1993 till 2001 and present PM Anders Fogh Rasmussen, that wiped out the devastating debt resulting from the irresponsible build up of the welfare society from the beginning of the 1960'es.

And from another corner: Reporters Without Borders recently placed Denmark number one at their World Press Freedom Index - together with Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland.

What do these seven countries hold in common? Well, to mention a few: they are rich, well established democracies from Northern Europa and they are small countries. Execpt Ireland they are all protestant.

Three of them (Ireland, Iceland and Denmark) are at the top 10 of the Economic Freedom Index and all seven are among the countries labeled Free at the World Freedom Index.

Freedom is the key to economic progress, clearly demonstrated by all major indexes in the world. Apart from that, freedom is in fact quite nice!
Click Continue .. to go on with some details on Press Freedom in Denmark versus Saudi Arabia .!

To balance the # 1 position at the Press Freedom Index however, the contry report from House of Freedom on the same topic does have some remarks:

Denmark (2005)
Legal Environment: 2 Political Influences: 3 Economic Pressures: 5 Total Score: 10
Status: Free
Danish media enjoy strong constitutional protections and a long tradition of press freedom. Independent print and broadcast media reflect a wide variety of views and are often critical of the government. However, there are some tensions between the government and the media. In April, Jesper Larsen and Michael Bjerre, two journalists with the conservative daily Berlingske Tidende, faced criminal charges for publishing extracts of confidential military reports passed on by a former intelligence officer. The reports, used by the government when it made its decision to go to war against Iraq, allegedly cast doubt on the existence of weapons of mass destruction. The intelligence officer who leaked the reports was also charged. The government finances four of the five national television networks and several radio stations, though their editorial boards are independent. Several private cable and satellite television channels also exist, as do private radio stations, which are tightly regulated.

The same report for Saudi Arabia reads:

Saudi Arabia (2005)
Legal Environment: 29 Political Influences: 28 Economic Pressures: 23 Total Score: 80
Status: Not Free
Authorities do not permit criticism of Islam or the ruling family by domestic media, and a national security law prohibits criticism of the government. These prohibitions are echoed by a media policy statement that urges journalists to "uphold Islam, oppose atheism, promote Arab interests, and preserve cultural heritage." Newspapers are created by royal decree, and all journalists must register with the 2Ministry of Information, which also appoints all editors in chief. Saudi Arabia's first professional journalists association was granted a charter in 2003, though the Ministry of Information can veto any of its decisions.
The print media are privately owned but publicly subsidized and are often closely associated with members of the royal family. Authorities frequently ban or fire journalists and editors who publish articles deemed offensive to the country's powerful religious establishment or the ruling authorities. Official censorship is common, as is self-censorship. Nevertheless, recent years have seen newspapers report on previously taboo issues-such as crime, corruption, women's rights, religion, terrorism, and elections in neighboring states-without prior authorization. In 2004, newspapers featured extensive coverage of upcoming municipal elections. In addition, two London-based dailies, Al-Sharq al-Awsat and Al-Hayat, were available and read widely, though content was tempered to comply with government guidelines. In March, authorities banned Al-Sharq al-Awsat journalist Faris Hizam Al-Harbi for his reporting on terrorism and corruption. The following month, Al-Harbi was detained and then released after about two weeks in custody. In December, journalists from the domestic newspapers the Saudi Gazette and Al-Madina were detained (and later released) at the trial of arrested advocates of democratic reforms.
The state-owned Saudi Press Agency does not deviate from official government positions. The broadcast media are government owned and subject to rigorous government censors; private radio and television stations cannot broadcast from Saudi soil. However, satellite television-through which Saudi citizens have access to foreign news channels such as Al-Jazeera and CNN-is widespread, despite its illegal status. In January, the government launched an all-news satellite channel, Al-Ikhbariya, which featured a female presenter in its opening broadcast, a first for Saudi media. The channel was established as an alternative to Al-Jazeera, which has repeatedly drawn the ire of authorities and is barred from covering the annual Hajj pilgrimage.
The government continues to censor foreign publications before they enter the country, blacking out and banning some objectionable materials. Foreign broadcasts are similarly censored, and references to politics, pork or pigs, alcohol, sex, and religions other than Islam are removed. The entry of foreign journalists is tightly controlled through the granting of visas, though restrictions have eased significantly in recent years. In June, BBC cameraman Simon Cumbers was shot dead while filming the house belonging to an al-Qaeda terrorist killed in 2003 by Saudi police. A BBC security correspondent, Frank Gardner, was injured in the attack.
The Internet is widely available, but the government has employed a sophisticated filtering system to block access to Web sites deemed morally or politically inappropriate. Some users circumvent these controls by accessing servers based in the more liberal Gulf states. Government officials reportedly ordered mobile phones with cameras to be banned from the country.

So, what’s happening in the tiny kingdom of Denmark these days?

Report from a sleepy kingdom

by Poul Højlund, March 30, 2006

The picture is shot in one of the old Viking camps, - from this very interesting French site.

Maybe we should all become a little more vikingish again!

Some 27 Muslim organisations sue Editor-in-Chief Carsten Juste and Editor Flemming Rose, both JyllandsPosten as you might well know at the moment, for the sum of DKK 100.000, app. USD 15.000. Modest indeed, one might add.

The claim is that the two editors through the cartoons have exposed the prophet Muhammad as belligerent and criminal, and that the cartoons make a clear parallel between the prophet and terror.

Furthermore the organisations claim that an article in the paper accuses Islam and the Muslim population to engage in and be an exponent of war and terror.

Well, finally they got the point!

The imam-gang are back in the safe heaven of the little kingdom, and of course interviewed on their latest lies. While they entertain the good people of the kingdom, the Danish police awaits the French police to respond to their request of an interview with the French journalist with the hidden camera who so grimly exposed the imam-gang.

The French journalist several times offered his direct assistance through the papers, but apparently Danish police prefer things to work with red tape, and perhaps the French police is otherwise engaged presently as France goes down the drain.

We’ll have to wait and see whether the police finally arrives at some conclusion at maybe even press charges for issuing death threats.

Meanwhile a young unemployed and consequently state supported leftist received a sentence of 60 days behind bars, but the verdict was immediately made conditional, so the young man was free to leave court. What he had done, the poor fellow? Absolutely nothing, except threatening the Prime Minister with sudden death in an e-mail directly to Mr. Fogh Rasmussen.

It was a joke made because he was bored he said in court - of doing nothing, one may presume - as Akkari said he was onloy joking when he threatened to bomb MP Naser Khader.

Jokes come in funny ways, these days.

And apart from this it seems that the good people of the kingdom - at least according to the ladies and gentlemen of the press - have gone bananas on picking up dead ducks trying to prevent the bird flue to infect us all. So far with some luck as I’m still able to report this

And that’s about it; Holger Danske still sleeping at Kronborg; all is talk and little is for real.

It is a fairy tale country and we would like to keep it that way.

Asking the tough questions on Islam

US online magazine Investor’s Business Daily asking tough questions

I guess we kind of know the answer to these questions, but as Michelle Malkin (hattip) puts it: CAIR, care to answer?

“Generally speaking, those questions focus on whether the Quran does indeed promote violence against non-Muslims, and how many of the terrorists' ideas — about the violent jihad, the self-immolation, the kidnappings, even the beheadings — come right out of the text? But even more specifically:
Is Islam the only religion with a doctrine, theology and legal system that mandates warfare against unbelievers?

Is it true that 26 chapters of the Quran deal with jihad, a fight able-bodied believers are obligated to join (Surah 2:216), and that the text orders Muslims to "instill terror into the hearts of the unbeliever" and to "smite above their necks" (8:12)?

Blogger: Can Islam be Reformed?

Reflections of a blogger: What will it take to reform Islam?

by Poul Højlund, March 28, 2006:

Some weeks ago Big Pharaoh pointed out why he was not impressed with Wafa Sultan as she bashed Islam at al Jazeera.

Big Pharaoh stated that as Mrs. Sultan left Islam, no Muslim will listen to her:

“We don't need former Muslims, we don't need atheists, we don't need lesbians, what we need are reform minded Muslim thinkers. Only these people have the necessary legitimacy to pull us from the dark abyss we're in now. “

I understand the logic of the comment, - and I even think he’s right.
Click Continue ..
So to get the Muslims to listen, we must get hold of some reform minded Muslim thinkers, able to say the same in the same way as Wafa Sultan did.

But then the next question follows: Do they exist? Is it possible somewhere to find what Big Pharaoh wants: reform minded Muslim thinkers? Are they not either hardliners in disguise such as Tariq Ramadan, - or simply kicked out of Islam for heresy like Dr. Nawal el-Saadawi?

Is it at all possible to remain Muslim without opting for the whole package including all of the Shari’ah as the law of society?

My answer so far: No.

The answer is based on the simple fact that no Islamic theology exists without all of the Shari’ah, to the very letter.

Check this example among others; its conclusion – after a long and pretty accurate discussion on modernizing Islam:

“Only we are responsible for making our voices heard loud and clear, and to show that we wholeheartedly reject all attempts to alter the ‘objectives’ or the ‘letter’ on which the Shariah is based, for if we do not fulfil our responsibility now, the future generations may never forgive us.”

The crucial point is as always the same - and indeed very simple:

1) God dictated the Koran, and every single word is the word of God – if you have any doubts here, wave goodbye to Islam as the Gabriel dictate is the real proof of God in the system

2) Trying to interpret, modernise or criticise the word of God is – of course - heresy

3) Heresy is a mortal crime due to the same text,

The system is made that way: it’s a circular system of logic deriving both its foundation, its interpretation and its logic from the same text: say no to just one item and the whole cardhouse tumbles.

And of course the system offers the punishment for any act that jeopardizes the system. It’s self-protecting to the level where any critical thinking is mortal, - and furthermore: abandoning the ship is equally mortal.

4) It takes a reform like the one Luther threw upon the then Catholic church to change Islam, - but remember: the Bible by nature and by Jewish tradition was open to interpretation. The Koran is literally the word of God, - not meant for interpretation by man.

Ergo: Islam cannot and can never change.

So, Big Pharaoh, either – or! Either Muslim or not. Attempts to criticize, to reform, to abandon, to moderate etc. are mortal – due to the system’s self-protective nature and self-preservation.

Please, correct me if I'm wrong.

Muslims have 1300 years of experience in this dangerous field, - as do the rest of the world. This is exactly why we need former Muslims more than anything else.

How former Muslims will believe in God, what names they want to call God, how they want to worship God is yet to be seen.

There are plenty of options.

Monday Late Update

In Denmark, Abu Laban and Ahmed Akkari were interviewed by the Copenhagen Police today, resulting in no charges.

Free to go, free to continue their conspiring against the country that took them in. Politicians agree that Denmark cannot expel them due to signing some UN treaty which for example France and UK haven’t signed. Well then, change the law, withdraw the signature, do something, anything. We cannot continue this way.

In Afghanistan, Abdul Rahman is freed and seeking asylum as a refugee with the help of UN, AP reported from Kabul. HT Michelle Malkin.

Great. Good for Mr. Rahman, and indeed an eye opener to that part of the free world that has not yet realized the true nature of hardcore Islam. Leaving Islam or criticizing Islam is heresy, and heresy is mortal.

Belgium prosecuting priest warning on "Muslim timebomb"

Belgium priest facing trial for "incitement to racist hatred"

The Belgiums really go for it: they prosecute a Turkish born priest warning against the Muslim immigration, calling him a racist. How many times must we explain that Islam is no race, but a political system incompatible with democracy?

Father Samuel has been prosecuted for “incitement to racist hatred” by the Belgian government’s inquisition agency, the so-called Centre for Equal Opportunities and Opposition to Racism (CEOOR), because of a remark he made in a 2002 television interview when he said:

“Every thoroughly islamized Muslim child that is born in Europe is a time bomb for Western children in the future. The latter will be persecuted when they have become a minority.”
