Coca Cola and Pepsi Should Apologize to Muslims

Just look at what the mofos at Coke did:

No Hate for Allah

Utterly disgraceful: They forgot to fit in "No Allah."

Pepsi is far worse. Observe:

Sly Bastard

It looks so innocent...till one finds out that PEPSI stands for Pinch Every Penny to Save Israel! (The founder of Pepsi was a sly bastard for coming up with that name in 1898.) In addition, the logo is so anti-Islamically tweakable.

Muslims deserve an apology and, for some reason, the Christians in Pakistan should comment on this matter as well.

A Single Thread of Power

Islamic Evil:

One needs to bear in mind that Sharia law is all or nothing.  Either the Muslim clergy enforces it all through coercion or it is powerless to enforce it.  There is no middle ground.  Therefore we see everywhere demands by the Muslim clergy that Sharia law supersede civil law.  Sharia is the domain of traditional Muslim clerical power and the Muslim clergy wants the restoration of that power in full wherever it has lost ground.  This provides the motivation for the clerical struggle against secular authority in Muslim lands and against the infidel world in general.

Quite right.

Much Needed Discussion

Lightness of Being:

There is a Quranic injunction that believing men and women are supporters of one another and should strive to enjoin good and forbid evil (rough paraphrase); how can we support each other as a community if we can’t even hold a proper conversation in public? The irony of this happening in western societies does not escape me; where a Muslim is in constant interaction with the other gender in their work environments. If I can go to work, meet with non Muslim men, interact with them in a very a-sexual manner, and accomplish things every day; then why can’t I go to a mosque and do the same?

Good question.

Honor Trumps Life

The Telegraph via Western Resistance:

Two men murdered a six-year-old girl by setting fire to her house to warn her brother off a relationship he was having, a court heard yesterday.

These men followed the Religion-That-Must-Not-Be-Named.

Alisha Begum suffered 95 per cent burns and died after a masked man burst into her home, sprayed petrol around and set it alight. The fire spread so quickly that members of her family had to jump out of upstairs windows to escape.

Who's responsible:

Birmingham Crown Court heard the attack was planned by Hussain Ahmed, a 26-year-old dentist, and Daryll Tuzzio, 18, after Ahmed found out his 15-year-old sister was seeing Alisha's brother, Abdul Hamid, 21. Yesterday the two men went on trial accused of murder and the attempted murder of nine of the girl's relatives who escaped from the blazing house in Aston, Birmingham.

Refugee Case Update

1. I met and talked to a lawyer about my refugee case. This lawyer will represent me in the hearing in early 2007.

2. The total lawyer fees upto the hearing date? $2,500 Canadian.

3. Total amount donated since September 10, 2006? $1,493 Canadian. I can only offer small words: Thank you all.

4. I'll publish the big essay next Monday. That will be the post of the year. I'll also send it to FFI and Western Resistance and I'll post excerpts on Liberty and Justice and IBA.

5. I've made a new category: Schrödinger's Case. If you wish to read exclusively about the progress of my refugee case, then just click on that in the sidebar.

6. Sorry for the depleted blogging over the past 10 days. I'll make up for it.

Smart Apes and Pigs

An interesting article in the TG Daily:

If you were to look into the story of Intel's latest microprocessors, you'd quickly learn that they aren't based so much on their seemingly most likely predecessor, the Pentium 4. Track down the family line and you end up at Banias, the first Pentium M. Join us for an interview with Mooly Eden, the man in charge of a project that convinced Intel to put the Gigahertz campaign into reverse.

Where was the Intel Core 2 Duo born? Mooly Eden answers:

If someone needs to be credited with the invention of the die of the Pentium M, then I would have to say it was the team in Israel: The design team, because it was a brilliant idea for the best processor in the world.

Question: Will the Core 2 Duo be banned in Islamic nations?

Infidels vs. Islamists

Yeah, this might as well happen.

Surprisingly, the Islamists are making that situation more likely with every passing day. It's odd to see Islamist attacks against relatively "neutral" nations in the present war. If these clowns were politically smart, they'd aim at specifically those nations that are allied with the US.

But then it's not in the nature of an Islamist to be rational.

The Charm of Islam

Raymond Ibrahim:

If seeing Arab, Pakistani, or other “ethnic” Muslims menacingly wave their hands while lambasting the West is nothing strange, seeing homegrown, non-accented Western converts doing the same thing is.  Along with John Walker Lindh, Richard Reid, Jose Padilla, and Germaine Lindsay — all Western converts to Islam and all terrorists — in the spotlight today are Abu Abdullah, the native Briton turned Muslim cleric, who makes no secret of his vitriolic hatred of the West and who was just arrested for terrorist-related charges, and Azzam “the American” (formerly Adam Gadahn), who after receiving a gracious introduction by Dr. Aymin Zawahri on an al-Qaeda video, harangued and mocked his fellow Americans into submitting to Allah.

What causes such men, born and raised in the West, often from Christian backgrounds, to abandon their heritage and embrace radical Islam?

Read it all to find out.

Kneel Before Allah!

Damian Penny nails it in this post:

This isn't about getting the Pope to realize he was wrong, or to realize he hurt Muslims' feelings. It's about making the world's most prominent Christian leader appear subservient to Islam.

They want him to grovel, so that they can show the Ummah just how meek the Christian world really is. These clowns take the sorry Western desire to be liked as a sure sign of weakness.

Some Rules Are More Equal Than Others

Victor Davis Hanson:

[...] we know the asymmetrical rules: a state run-paper in Cairo or the West Bank, a lunatic Iranian mullah, a grand mufti from this or that mosque, can all rail about infidels, “pigs and apes”, in language reminiscent of the Third Reich—and meet with approval in the Middle East and silence in the West. But for a Westerner, a Tony Blair, George Bush, or Pope Benedict to even hint that something has gone terribly wrong with modern Islam, is to endure immediate furor and worse. In short, no modern ideology, no religious sect of the present age demands so much of others, so little of itself.


Going Down in History


Turkey’s nationalist paper Vatan quoted Salih Kapusuz, head of the ruling Justice and Development Party’s parliamentary group as saying: “The mentality of the Crusades has returned.

“(Benedict) will go down in history in the same category as leaders such as Hitler and Mussolini.”

That opinion brought to you by a nation that continues to deny the Armenian Genocide.

Another thing: Have you noticed just how easily infidels are labelled as Nazis or fascists? The Muslim world is littered with groups and individuals who almost daily reiterate their desire to murder Jews, yet somehow those true heirs of the Nazis escape condemnation.

Something is rotten in modern Turkey.

Michelle Malkin showcases a mature response from the Ummah:

Pope Says It Like It Is


The pope quoted from a book recounting a conversation between 14th-century Byzantine Christian Emperor Manuel Paleologos II and a Persian scholar on the truths of Christianity and Islam.

“The emperor comes to speak about the issue of jihad, holy war,” Benedict said. “He said, I quote, ’Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”’

That's right.

I find this amusing:

Many Muslims accused Benedict of seeking to promote Judeo-Christian dominance over Islam.

No need since Islam itself ensures that the Muslim lands remain inferior to the Judeo-Christian parts of the world.

Oriana Fallaci (1930-2006)

Western Resistance:

Today, the Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci lost her battle against cancer, DPA reports. Aged 77, she died in hospital in her home town of Florence.

Charles Johnson:

We’ve lost a powerful voice in the battle against Islamic supremacism.

Pajamas Media: In Memoriam (via Instapundit).

Michael Ledeen:

She was a freedom fighter to her core, having descended from a proud line of such people. She had an anarchist grandfather and an anti-fascist father (once scheduled for execution) and a mother tough as nails. Oriana ran secret missions for the anti-fascist resistance inTuscany, while still a teenager. I have no doubt that she spent her entire adult life carrying out a very well defined mission to prove herself worthy of her name. She certainly succeeded. She was one of the all-time great nonconformists, she fought tyranny wherever she saw it and she challenged evil, especially in the hands of hypocrites, as soon as she detected its rotten odor.

Help The Little Blasphemer

I am a refugee claimant in Canada. My hearing will take place in early January 2007. I am a citizen of Pakistan, a nation which has a blasphemy law on the books--it's called Section 295-C:

Use of derogatory remarks, etc. in respect of the Holy Prophet. Whoever by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representation, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuation, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable to fine."

I started blogging in December 2004. Since then I have written quite a bit that would over-qualify for blasphemy. For example, in January 2006, I supported the showcasing of the Muhammad cartoons:

If you're from Denmark, then know this:
Don't give in to the psychotic thugs and regimes of the Muslim world. These are the same people who keep half their population as slaves, hang homosexuals, behead alcohol consumers, treat kids with utter cruelty, "think" that Jews rule the world, and celebrate when Westerners are ruthlessly murdered. And yet they're offended by a few harmless cartoons.

It is you--the Danes--who should be appalled at the atrocious and wretched behaviour of such an odious section of humanity. Do not apologize for your exercises in freedom. Do not sacrifice your free speech at the altar of deplorable Muslim feelings.

Cherish your precious liberty and stand tall against these barbarians.

Want to see Muhammed? Here you go:


Another example from April 2006:

It is vitally important that the West not put Islam or any other religion off-limits to critical analysis. For only in the West can a person safely write that the obliteration of a Jewish tribe, the taking of sex-slaves, and the confiscation of non-Muslim property is something not to be celebrated and emulated.

I have put a donation button on my sidebar:

The money will go towards paying for a professional lawyer. (Baron Bodissey of Gates of Vienna kindly offered the image.) [Update: I've changed the image to the one you see now for the sake of clarity.]

You can also help by publicizing my blog and my case. In the coming days, I'll publish a more detailed account. Your criticism and/or suggestions are welcome.

A Convenient Myth


IT'S A WIDESPREAD MYTH that the Bush Administration "squandered the world's goodwill" after 9/11. Anne Applebaum reminds us that it wasn't that way.

Quite right. There are a few who puff up this mythical goodwill for a political reason: They can blame President Bush for squandering that goodwill by waging his "war of choice" in Iraq.

Slightly Off-topic: If you haven't read Anne Applebaum's The Gulag, then you should give it a try. It's a harrowing account of Soviet / Russian cruelty and it underscores the point of getting history right.

Khatami Offers A Void

An excerpt from Khatami's lecture:

[...] the Orient and specifically the Islamic Orient, can fill the enormous void of spirituality and estrangement from the truth of existence, which today is the great affliction of our world, by reliance upon its moral heritage and transcendental wisdom and by the avoidance of ostentation and superficiality.

Moral heritage and transcendental wisdom? I somehow totally missed that in over a decade in Saudi Arabia.

Charles Johnson:

The West, you see, suffers from an over-reliance on reason, and only Islam can save the world.

But, of course. There's an ugly beauty in that tactic. Khatami doesn't dare take on the granite foundations of Western Civilization--he only talks about the vague spiritual emptiness of the West. It makes his offer seem deceptively soft and harmless.

What The Blogosphere Has Wrought

The Big Pharaoh via The Belmont Club:

I accidentally bumped into this blog yesterday. The Land of Sands describes himself as "an underground writer from the Arabian lands of sands." He is in the United Arab Emirates (where Dubai is) and is obviously an atheist. His blog introduction says: In the land of sand lives millions of people whose brains were programmed by fixed standards  that define the course of their thinking. They dig in the sands trying to find truth which is shinning over their heads, exactly like the Arabian desert burning sun. Wake up. They are lying at you.

Interesting. First we had an Egyptian lesbian blogger, then a young Egyptian girl (or hottie as she calls herself) talking about what she intimately does with her boyfriend, then we're having an atheist blogger from the Emirates. This blogging thing is amazing. It's a revolution. These people would have never found another way to voice their opinions. Here you have 3 different people talking about 3 completely different thing yet they are common in one thing: they couldn't say in public what they post on their blogs. They would become toast if they did.

So very true.

Full Strength and Support

A little over 24 hours ago, I was stressed out. Now, I feel perfectly fine. It's amazing what words of support can accomplish. I don't talk about my situation in the offline world, so it's quite overwhelming and heartening to see such kindness from so many commenters and bloggers.

A special thanks to Michael van der Galien for publishing the information at his blog, at the IBA, and at The Moderate Voice and for spreading the news and for getting an Instalanche! Thank you, Prof. Reynolds.

To the bloggers at:

You have my gratitude.

How The Time Was Set

I started getting ready for the big day at 4 a.m. I put on my suit and then went to Toronto. My meeting was at 9:30 a.m. I had breakfast and then entered the building at 8:45 a.m.

At about 9:50 a.m. all of us, five different claimants, were called into the meeting room. Our cases were similar and so were the rules that applied to us--these were relayed verbally. Two of the claimants had translators; one in Urdu, the other in Tamil. So, the person who was telling us about the regulations had to halt every few words for the deciphering. This got quite jarring after a few minutes. The entire talk in English / Urdu / Tamil took around 30 minutes.

After that we left the room. It was time for each case to be dealt with individually. I was called at around 10:45 a.m.

I was presented with a few documents such as the photocopy of my personal file and the supporting papers that I had provided them a few months earlier. A curious two-page document called the Screening Form was also given to me. Basically, in there, my claim was boiled down in a few words. I wasn't satisfied with the summary. In turn, the person(s) who made the Screening Form weren't satisfied with my claim.

For example, a part of the "Claim Description" in the Screening Form:

"PAKISTAN, Punjab, Lahore
Fear is unspecified/unclear
appears to fear persecution because of his anti-Islamic views."

Apparently, I have done an atrocious job of presenting my case. Fortunately, I still have three months to rectify the situation (since I can mail in documents at least 20 days before the hearing).

I asked a few questions about the summary. I was told that it comes down to credibility or rather the lack of it. The Refugee Protection Officer tried to console me by saying that that is the problem with everyone in my situation.

The officer made a phone call to schedule the time for my hearing. She inquired if X day in January is alright. I thought to myself for a second and then asked if it was possible to make it the day after that. The officer went back to the call and in a few seconds answered in the affirmative.

I left the building at 11:30 a.m. Leading up to the meeting, I tried to stay calm but somehow anxiety crept up ever so slowly. When I exited the building, I was mentally tired. I walked to the bus station in zombie-mode.

On the trip back, only one thought echoed in my mind: On my next birthday, I will fight for my life.

Showing Both Sides

Victor Davis Hanson answers a question today in the Angry Reader section. I can't help but present it in full:

Have you ever written, Mr. Hanson, anything critical of Israel. Come on, show both sides.

Hanson: Israel, like the U.S., is a democratic republic, so it is an honest reflection of human nature and argumentation, and of course subject to mistakes as is any liberal state. But we are talking of disagreements within definite parameters of lawfulness and transparency. Hamas, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt simply have no liberal institutions. State-run megaphones puppet the party-line. Anti-Semitism is a national creed. There are no human rights as we know them. So it hard to insist on moral equivalence, when in one state Arabs vote and enjoy legal protection, and in another Jews would be hounded and killed or ethnically cleansed. After all, the entire matter is Orwellian: there are no illegal Arab aliens in Syria, for example, but plenty in Israel. So they must know something you do not.

If the Palestinians were to forget about a disputed 10% of land on the West Bank for 10 years, use petromoney from their friends, reform and open the economy and insist on the rule of law, they could craft a humane society that could very easily come to an agreement with Israel. But then, that would require growing up, rejecting easy handouts to militias, renouncing the mystique of terror, questioning patriarchy, gender apartheid, fundamentalism, and autocracy — and being more like Israel than like Syria or Iran. And that apparently is just too much.

Visit the site for more insight.

The Time is Set

My hearing will be in early 2007. One judge will listen to my case and decide whether I should be granted refugee status here in Canada or be deported to the lovely nation of Pakistan.

Tomorrow, I'll provide more details about my trip and the meeting. I only got a little over three hours of sleep last night during which I had the most vivid and the wackiest dream of my life. I'll share that as well.

Thank you all for your support, prayers, and comments.

The "Truth" Movement


[...] Morgan O. Reynolds, appointed by George W. Bush as chief economist at the Labor Department. He left in 2002 and doesn't think much of his former boss [...]

He can't possibly be related to Glenn:

"There were no planes, there were no hijackers," Reynolds insists. "I know, I know, I'm out of the mainstream, but that's the way it is."

But what about all those New Yorkers who saw airplanes hitting the twin towers? A chuckle rumbles down the phone line. "I don't believe anyone in Lower Manhattan," he says. "You hire three dozen Actors' Equity dudes and they'll say anything."

Common sense is sadly not so common.

A Slippery Slope

The Big Pharaoh:

First reported by The Sandmonkey. Two hospitals in northwestern England will be offering head-to-toe gowns for Muslim women who request them.

Interesting contrast:

People, we don't even have such a thing in Egypt!!  Britain, you are going way way too far. Believe me, you're not doing your Muslim community a favor. And those intelligent Muslims who are not standing against this notion of covering all women up are not doing a favor to themselves either.

It's in the Quran! (Sura 4:34)

LFG: "ISNA Seminar: How to Beat Women".


Oddly enough, I mentioned the same thing just a few days ago in this post in which I defended Prime Minister Howard.

This just shows that the Muslims thugs have zero substance when it comes to opposing the modern Western ideals on purely cultural grounds especially when it comes to the treatment of women. They know that they'll lose if they start talking about the benefits of female genital mutilation or allowing a husband to beat his wife (in a proper manner, of course) or the warmth of marriages within the family etc.
