Little fight from the Aussies
Leave the tie alone


A fellow named hidi left a comment on a post that's five years old:

Total bullshit. All of what you just said. Not one ounce of truth. I guess you are a white guy from the sates reporting on what uve heard in the news. Fox? CNN? I suggest you do your research from acutal people who know and live there.

Very amusing. My blog post about Islam and photography is "total bullshit". All of it! Yet, I quoted Islamic sources to showcase my point. Perhaps, hidi can point to some halal sources which shed a favorable light on art.

What say you, hidi?



Ah, Isaac! I remember well the Zahra Kazemi case, and how the BBC actually tried to minimize what happened - for fear of offending her murderers. The readers who criticized the coverage had their comments 'disappeared', as I recall, but the overwhelming response to the western media was complete disgust at their cowardice then. It hasn't improved any, now. I saw an interview with Pamela Geller and Erin so-n-so on CNN, where the young, white, loopy Erin desperately tries to educate Pamela of the 'true' meaning of jihad. Of course, in the dyslexicon of reality that comprises journalistic thought, jihad is the peaceful inner struggle of a peaceful follower of the Religion of Peace who is merely trying to improve himself. Peacefully. You know?
Needless to say, Geller schooled Ms. Erin in reality, who remained unconvinced. Orwell was right: Reality exists only in the mind.
