Is a Site Supposedly about Veterans a Cover for Jew Bashing and Israel Bashing Propoganda?

While looking online for info about current numbers of artists who identify as muslim I found this

As it is sooo egregious I thought I'd better bring it to my readers attention.

"VETERANS TODAY HAS BEEN REQUESTED TO PUBLISH THE FOLLOWING DECLARATION:" It is a list of people with a lot of Phds who supposedly endorse the statement that No Muslims were involved in 9/11. Which the website, supposedly devoted to American Veteran's issues, dutifully published.

If you enjoy vomiting in rage here is the link to the "declaration":

It is on a website called Veterans Today. It is posing as a website by and for Veterans but if you look on the main page it becomes quickly obvious that it is really an anti Isreal-pro Hamas propoganda rag. Below a few window dressing veterans interest stories almost all of the articles are about bashing Isreal and Jews.

Just a few of the articles on the main page were:
There are articles about an Isreali serial killer.
Israeli War Crimes Ads Banned in Seattle‏ that mentions Atlas Shrugged's Seattle bus campagn. (Why would veterans care about that?)
an article on the Second Annaversary of Isreal's "brutal assault on Gaza" (my quotes).

At the top of the "living section" is an article bemoaning how "our" country has aided in the slaughter of palestinians. (what does that have to do with a lifestyle section?)

In history is an article about the origin of the word goy and the sentence that just happens to be under the title is someone saying "the goyem were born to serve us".  (An interesting choice considering there is 3000 years of military history to choose subject matter from.)

These articles are all on the main page. I did not have to search thru the site to find them.
Get a load of this filth:

If anyone knows which veterans groups would be interested in these people spouting propoganda in their name please forward this information to them. I will look for some as of this minute don't know any.

Call For a Serious Investigation: How many Muslim Artists are There?

This is in reaction to what I read in a short article at Jihadwatch. The article is about how middle school teachers cannot find enough books about being a muslim teenager in America for their students to read.

The writer then goes on to suggest, tounge in cheek, various innacurate portrayals of Muhammad and Islam as good examples of islamic fiction. Well and fine but the revelation about a derth of creative writing for YA readers on the subject raised a potentially important question.

We know that Islamic countries have contributed very little to the sciences in modern times but what about the arts? Exactly how many Musilms contribute to the arts? And how does that number compare to other various peoples contributions in various locales? If a lot then it should be lauded (to offset negative perceptions on both sides about negligible islamic contributions to the sciences). If not a lot then this should be encouraged.

I posit here that the contribution to the arts of an immagrant group is an indicator of actual assimilation. For arts I mean hand or digital painting, drawing, fine art photography, music composing, music playing, fiction writing (and ONLY fiction writing), poetry. and comic books.

I don't include Political Cartooning and Film/TV as those are too commonly used to disseminate political/religious propoganda.


What is the percentage of muslims who contribute to the arts in various western and muslim countries?

Or more specifically:

Is thre a difference in percentage between western and muslim countries?
between different muslim countries?
between different western countries?
In Western countries, how does that percentage between different Western countries?
In Western countries how does that percentage compare to other immagrants of 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation in those countries.
What is the difference between western and muslim contries of similar GDP or standard of living?
How many muslims or people of muslim descent or people who identify as muslim are proffesional fine artists, commercial artists or involved in arts administration?

If there is a negative discrepancy then arts education can be enhanced in various ways as a way to facilitate assimilation of youth from islamic countries. Also contests with rules against political or religious content can be held to encourage the arts in "various communities".

I am not a sociologist, anthropologist or statistician. I hope a study of this has been done but if not I hope this inspires someone who is in a position to make such a study.

Syrian Government was Involved in Motoon "Outrage".

I think the people who orchestrated the ginned up riots over the Motoons were just out for material rewards and didn't really give a crap about hurt muslim feelings.

I just read an illuminating article at Jihadwatch. Wikileaks released diplomatic cables showes that the US knew the Syian Government was involved in controlling the ginned up Motoons protests.

The Syrian Govenrment told the chief Imam to tell all other Imams to screach about the Motoons. There were then attacks on several embassies in Damascus in early February 2006. Embassies targeted included those of Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Then the Syrian Government told him to tell them to stop.

At first this struck me as odd. I always thought Syria only acted in direct ways for their own local interests and didn't use Islam as a tool to expand influence like the Saudis do. Ya Ya I know about Hizbolla but that is directed at Lebanon and Isreal, not Europe. If they had a hand in the riots it had to be ONLY for their own political reasons in Arabia and Europe and not for some show of Islamic force.

Perhaps they probably did it to make a statement to other Arab/OIC countries that they are islamitically patriotic as they are and can be significant like Iran and Saudi Arabia. Or they were doing it in agreement with other Arab/OIC governments.

It is significant that it is revealed that it was the government that started the protests and not the religious leaders.

Which brings us to the Vocabulary word of the day: Slipstreaming.

I have only heard the term "Slipstreaming" once but it was used by a US government counter terrorism expert. After a terrorist attack, "moderate" muslims will stream out of the woodwork to make requests and demands from a victim government "to ease tensions between Muslims and non muslims".

It has been suggested that the current explosion of Muslim population in Europe started after a wave of terrorist attacks in the 60's. The same source said after Europian countries eased restrictions on immigration and gave Arab countries good trade deals the wave of terrorist attacks "in support of the palestinians" ended.

As the source of the Motoon protests was state rather then church, I would bet a bippy or two that Syrian diplomats slipstreamed on this to pressure EU countries for favorable trade deals.

So what I am saying is it is entirely possible that Syria made their people all upset over some cartoons but were really using those protests as a show of violent force as a diplomatic tool to get concessions form Europian countries and didn't really care about hurt muslim feelings.

Here is the original article from Jihadwatch I am commenting on:
Syria helped orchestrate 2006 Motoon riots

More accurate translation of the Koran

I just watched this fascinating video on YouTube. It is about the a) earliest versions of the Koran (70 years after the death of Muhammad) found to date and b) an innovative translation method that is extremely accurate. Muslim countries have banned it. Natch.

The oldest versions don't have vowel markings or distinguishing dots over letters so words from the original can have up to 30 different meanings.

At the time of the Koran's original construction Arabic writing was just starting. In fact the Koran is the VERY FIRST BOOK WRITTEN IN ARABIC. So the language would be very different from today. As different as english was a thousand years ago. See if you can understand an olde inglishee style version of Beowulf or even the Canterbury Tales, written in the middle ages. So the very first arabic writing was a mishmash of spoken arabic and other established written languages - like english is (a great many of the words we use are of french or german or latin origin).

The author posited that one of the languages was Syro-Aramaic. A widely used written language in the region at that time but which is no longer used. When applied to an understanding of the ancient Koran it turns many passages on their heads.

For instance the passage that many claim is responsible for women having to wear the hajib is just telling them they should go about wearing belts (like monks of the time wore). Another passage mentioned is the one about the 72 virgins (or houris (make up yer mind Muhammad!)). In the more accurate translation it is talking about white grapes. In frescoes in the region made at that time people can be seen sitting on angels laps being given white grapes as a symbol for spiritual succor. As Islam took bits and pieces from Christianity and Judaism, that the Koran says you can have wonderful wine in heaven may be sourced to that christian symbolism too.

There are other examples.

I suggest that the anti jihadist of the sort who reads the Koran/hadith/sira HAS to get a copy of this book. It is The Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Koran by Christoph Luxenberg (Not the author's real name. He used a nome de plume because he didn't wanna go boom).

Here is the book at amazon: The Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Koran  (I don't have a deal with amazon and  have not monetized this blog).

What is so mind boggling about this is that it may well turn out that muslims who preach a strict literal following of the Koran et all have been following a complete mistranslation. The mother of all mistranslations in fact. All those women covered head to toe in bee keeper outfits could have been walking around in shorts and breathable cotton blouses all these centuries- just as long as they also wear belts.

Update on that last paragraph. The 90 year old brother of Hasan al Bana, the originator of the ultra right wing Muslim Brotherhood (the group behind the resurgance of the burka phenomenon) and the author of over 90 books on the Koran and Islam, said there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING anywhere in the holy books that says anything about wearing the head scarf or burka. The passage he says is used to justify the burka actually says muslim woman are not allowed to expose their breasts in public. THATS IT. So according to real orthodox fundamentalist islam, muslim women are allowed to wear WHATEVER THE FUCK THEY WANT, they just can't go topless or appear in a muslims go wild video. It makes all those public beatings in Sudan and Afganistan women get for wearing trousers or toe polish even more inescusable. Not that that's possible.

Here is the link to the video. It is a 50 minute documentary by a mulim man interviewing other muslim men about the Muslim Brotherhood posted by Kitman TV:
Freedom, Equality and the Moslim Brotherhood

So in fact Bin Ladin Al Quida, the Saudis and the Muslim Brotherhood really really are actual apostates. They believe the Koran is the exact word of god and cannot be refuted by man. But that word of god they have based their beliefs has been mistranslated by men. In fact ALL MUSLIMS COULD BE APOSTATES. Jeez louise. You see now why I think this is a big deal?

There are a few muslim scholars in the vid who argue against him but their arguments are pretty old hat and have been refuted by experts on the subject (people who have actual degrees in this stuff - not doofoids like yours truelly). If you do a little looking up you might find which middle eastern country funds the various chairs one or more of these islamic scholars hold.

That muslims have made this guy scared to show his real name or face shows they care far more about the earthly benefits of power and wealth the current translation of the Koran gets them and don't really give a shit about spirituality or their souls in the afterlife. If they did they would certainly be more interested in a provably more accurate translation. If they believe the Koran is the direct word of god to Muhammad- don't they want to know what god REALLY said? Not if it makes the bitches and Covassier dry up they don't.
I couldn't get it to display as well as it appears on YouTube so I put a link to it instead. Right click and choose open in new tab or window so you can come back here for the link for the book if you are interested.

The OIC is attacking the Internet!

The OIC is the Organization of the Islamic Conference - an organized voting block of Islamic States at the UN . They have filled their group with countries that don't have muslim majority populations in order to get a significant voting block at the UN. They have already taken over the UN's Human Rights Council in order to corrupt it from it's original purpose. Now they want to do the same thing to the whole internet.

The ICANN controlls domain names. It was started under Clinton and was controlled by the US but will soon be under mulitnational controll. The current chairman has UK/Egyptian citizenship.

The OIC/League of Arab States wants to use its voting power to get controll of ICANN. Their internet steering committee is composed of Tunisia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt.

The Lawfare Project Reports:

On October 28, 2010, at OIC-CERT’s Second Annual General Meeting, OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu noted the following as a core mission of OIC-CERT: To use technical, administrative and legal methods to:

1) Stamp out citicism of Islam on the internet.
2) Enforce Islamic standards of public morality. (On the whole fucking world!!!)

Do we want Tunisia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt's concept of public morality determining what we can access on the internet?

This is an open call to Anonymous:

Unleash the nerds of war!!!

Here is the actual article from Vlad Teppes that made my head blow up:

Nya Nya Missed Us!

This a-hole blew himself up in a Swedish neighborhood today while people were out Christmas shopping. He lit his car, which was full of petrol tanks, on fire then one of the 12 pipe bombs he had strapped to himself went off prematurely. Only 2 people were hurt and not too badly. He sent an email to police saying the attack was because- who cares. He left behind a wife and 3 children to look after themselves and live with the shame and horror of what he's done for the rest of their lives. Someone made a memorial facebook page for him but I thought this memorial would be more fitting.

Or to put it another way:

Taimour: Can I haz jihad?
GOD: NO! You go boom now Taimour.

His name was Taimour. So now when some jihadi wannabe makes a nuisance of himself to you online just say to him "you go Taimour now" or "go Taimour yourself."
