lesser danish toon

we've already seen the islamic street's tolerance for any type of art that could be considered anti-islamic. so it should be of no surprise that after a danish cartoon depicting muhammed as a terrorist, the islamic street has erupted in protest & violence.. saudi arabia recalled it's ambassador from denmark, gunmen raided the EU office in gaza.. all of this over a cartoon.

i would really appreciate the same type of reaction from the islamic community over the genocide in Darfur.. a genocide perpetrated by islamic arabs against Christian and animist africans.. since Feb 2003, over 400,000 people have died at the hands of these muslims.. yet, there is silence on this topic in the islamic community.. just like there is silence when major terrorist attacks occur. 1.3 BILLION people, and not a word to say about the actions of the people who represent them in the name of allah.

HOWEVER, should there be a film or a cartoon or an essay about anything anti-islam, there are protests, CAIR statements, KILLINGS.. saudi arabia will recall it's ambassador, yet in it's embarassment of riches, will do nothing to prevent the genocide at the hands of islamists across the red sea..

so, in short, there is a double standard. the prosepect of a koran touching the ground seems to be far more important for news headlines than the death of hundreds of thousands in the name of allah.. its either that people don't care or they're too PC to call a spade a spade..

black market love..

from middle east newsline:
ABU DHABI [MENL] -- Iran was said to have acquired a nuclear bomb.
A leading U.S. nuclear proliferation expert said Teheran obtained an atomic bomb about a decade ago from the nuclear black market. The expert said Iran sought to produce additional nuclear weapons through technology from Pakistan and other countries.

"The one functional device Iran has," Mansoor Ijaz, a U.S. nuclear scientist, said, "is the result of clandestine transfers from Pakistan's rogue black market nuclear scientist, Abdul Qadeer Khan, who sold the Iranians antiquated but highly effective Chinese bomb designs and parts, including spherical shell casings, spherical Krytron detonation switches and empirical software testing modules."

On Saturday, Iran threatened to launch a missile strike against the West. The commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Maj. Gen. Rahim Safavi, said Teheran could retaliate with the Shihab-3 intermediate-range missile against what he termed was British efforts to foment unrest in western Iran.

finding those pesky WMD's

time for some news you won't read or see in the mainstream media.. the united nations has found that iraq sent wmd's out of town leading up to the second iraq war.. did you read that right ?? the UNITED NATIONS found this to be the case..
from world tribune:

The United Nations has determined that Saddam Hussein shipped weapons of mass destruction components as well as medium-range ballistic missiles before, during and after the U.S.-led war against Iraq in 2003.

The UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission briefed the Security Council on new findings that could help trace the whereabouts of Saddam's missile and WMD program.
The briefing contained satellite photographs that demonstrated the speed with which Saddam dismantled his missile and WMD sites before and during the war. Council members were shown photographs of a ballistic missile site outside Baghdad in May 2003, and then saw a satellite image of the same location in February 2004, in which facilities had disappeared..

obviously, the notion that bush didn't lie and people died doesn't play well with the peaceniks out there.. i doubt seriously this UN report will get much coverage in the mainstream media..

then there is this little diddy in the Jerusalem post about saddam wanting to launch a WMD attack on israel in gulf war I..

The former deputy of the Iraqi air force, General Georges Sada, revealed on Saturday that that former dictator of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, ordered him during the first Gulf War to bomb Israeli population centers with chemical weapons.

The ousted dictator, said Sada in recently published book, Saddam's secret's, ordered 96 Russian fighter jets to be armed with chemical weapons and sent to bomb Israel...

kinda interesting how a man without WMD was planning to use the WMD's he didn't have on Israel..
