What astounds me most is that you hear nothing from the limo-libs about this world-wide travesty where, according to the Koran, have little more value than a dog. The conundrum to many is the apparent lack of retaliation towards the oppressors by the victims. Fear, could be considered as a restraining force in keeping abused spouses silent but it has been my experience that fear will only serve to keep a people in line for a while. The deeper chains that keep many third-world females silent lie within their own spiritual beliefs. The understanding of what a good Muslim woman as a opposed to a bad Muslim woman is programmed into the victim, sometimes from birth. And it appears that shame and guilt can trump fear as a restraining force.
Pat Condell has a way with words and ideas that I find enchanting. He speaks for England mentions other Europeans and usually hits the nail squarely on the head.
Why Muslims commit such violence, (up to now, primarily on other Muslims.)
Fact is we, ah- hem… if in reality they didn’t have teeth, leopards would starve . Teeth are hard and tear things apart….. they represent the hard parts of life……..Micro-aggression? Hmmmmm.
But that is the question. If evil must exist to validate good, is there really any reason to behave? You’r vital to the system either way. The natural order of the ecosystem is based on the ingestion of one organism over others….Lions eat meat, cows eat grass. These are the natural order of things. When you find a lion that, by their own volition, is a vegetarian, then we will discuss completely eliminating evil in the world. But such is not the case, unless you have an urge to hunt down and kill all alpha animals on the planets.
Violence is a natural drive. M And mankind kind is destined to war his deepest drives.. The whole point in this inherent civil war is the struggle to find that imperfect balance between personal protection and sacrifice of the sovereign of the teritorial imperative.
Evil is in us all. Sometimes I feel that when we fight evil and win we are redeemed,…that we have won a battle against the bloodier angels of our nature. My mouth can deny the windshield. My face cannot. But when evil rises from it’s lair of shit and pitch waiting for the arrival of a miracle save to you is a fatal tactic. Regardless of how many times you watch “The Sound of Music” reality remains the same. And if you die waiting for the miracle, you will just be another corpse on the pile. Others will be left fight your fight. Many will die or maimed in your sted. Many will live with the unseen scars in their souls. (Like I get when I take out the garbage and the bag breaks about three feet from the trash bin.)But it is time to take out the garbage.
While the decrepit and wicked west was crafting the Magna Charta and painting the Sistine Chapel ceiling,…….
Scrotums and penises were being cut from black captives on slave trade raids and subsequent death marches. Use of slaves both male and female as menial servants and as rape slaves was common well into the 20th century. Genital mutilation of female captives, also a common practice often ended in an agonizing death. along these death marches. (It is regrettable that Gloria Steinem was not around at the time. ) The booming business of sex-slave trade continued for at least 1200 years, well into the 20th century.
I have been intellectually lazy, however, for neglecting cornering a feminist and pumping her for info concerning the modern feminists attitude and missionary action for the women of the Muslim culture.
Oh! Why the deafening silence from NORMAL etc.. Apparently it is OK for the woman who is so fragile that she will ruin your life and or career over a sexual comment in the workplace but tolerate women coerced…..into genital mutilation, marriage against their will starting at the age nine and up, jailing, whipping or stoning for being raped, facial mutilation, amputation of the extremities, (arms feet etc.), etc. as a small sample of legal judgments according to Sharia Law.
The crusaders often massacred whole villages in the quest to regain the possession of the holy land. Not much better than the torture chambers of the inquisition or our past poor treatment of many indigenous populations all over the world As an American raised with Judeo/Christian values I feel a twinge of shame at the mention of Christian brutality, (against Muslims in particular)..
So what is the difference.
Where is our position of moral ascendancy?
The big fact, the 800Lb. gorilla sitting in the middle of our living room, is that these dirty deeds happened 1400 years ago(not to mention our near genocide of Americas indigenous populations).Remember the trail of tears, the Sand Creek massacre, or the massacre at Wounded Knee. Christians feel more and more at ease the farther we get from those dark days following the disintegration of the Roman Empire as well as the conquering of North America and our attempts at “civilizing” the Indians.
But when the Shaw of Iran bought the farm and was set packing in a religious coup d’état in ’79. The fundamentalist revival that has since grown, and in some quarters still grows. The point of this revival is to turn the calenders back to the 6th century, with law based on a weired welding of Judeaism,Christianity, and Bedouin polytheist tradition. The goal of the game is conquer, occupy and install their values in the occupied country. A world wide Caliphate is the ultimate goal. The strategy is to do anything you can to dismantle all other societies and in the process, install Sharia as a constitutional framework.
Love was the message of an itinerant preacher proselytized two millennia ago. The spiritual power of his message still resonates around the world. And the fact of the matter is that the world is a violent place hungry for respite from the labours and horrors of a violent world. . His message was simple, but very difficult to execute. Commitment and effort, fidelity and patience are few of the disciplines of love.
Above all, the lesson we learned most deeply is that we don’t want to go back to the old days. We want our women free, equal and in possession of their own lives.
Bill Maher says we (the civilized world) should quit respecting Saudi bullshit. Usually I find little to agree with in Mr Maher’s statements. But on this occasion I agree. I agree with the first ladies refusal to wear any head cover during their recent photo-op with the Saudi family. The Saudi refusal to shake the first ladies hand would be seen as a terrible statement of disrespect in any other venue in the world. But it seems that the Muslim sensitivities hold sway over all other considerations. Other guests on this vid do say a few things that could be construed as appeasement of the Saudi’s, but just avert you eyes and ears at the delicate moments if you please.
It’s about the worldwide subjugation and victimization of a whole gender. It’s about a woman stuffed into a cloth bag buried up to her waist and then slowly murdered by having rocks thrown at her. For suspected adultery. By the way, the size of the stones are limited so there will not be an opportunity for a quick kill with a large rock to the head. The Mullahs in there infinite wisdom want the victim to die slowly. If you have been raped you had better have four male witnesses or you willl be whipped or incarcerated. All rape victims are punished for somehow inciting the rape.
Sharia law is in direct contradiction to any standard of decency any place on earth. From the amputations for theft, stoning for sexual indiscretions, hangings (Iran is hanging homosexuals), to death for apostasy. It is a laundry list of tortures and abominations as long as your arm. Sharia defiles the common good wherever it is installed and enforced. It should be ablated like a cancer when found.
