… At Least They Are Taking a Stand [#Islam]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 19th,2016

.. it is taking a stand on religion in general that gets a little touchy . Where it comes to Islam , though , is something that I do not find controversial ..

.. I am a Roman Catholic . JFK was our country ‘ s first Catholic President . It was extremely difficult for him to navigate the political seas during the 1960 campaign . There were constant attacks on him , due to his Catholic faith …

.. so applying a religious test of any kind to any candidate is a really sensitive issue . But where Islam is concerned , things are markedly different …

.. the following of Islam is a recent import to our shores . The public following of the faith has not gotten the public vetting that many other faiths have received , such as mine . So people in general and many folks in particular are not going to be really all that comfortable with the possible idea of a Muslim in the White House …

.. considering the thought that we may already have a ” closeted ” Muslim [His Lordship] there , already …

… The Tragedy of Terrorism [#Canada]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,October 26th,2014

.. the horror of terrorism has hit Canada and Canadians , in a way that strikes anger and resolve into the hearts of us all …

.. the other day , a ” lone wolf ” jihadi Islamic radical attacked the Cenotaph [Canada ‘ s National War Memorial] and the Parliament House …

.. the Canadians were very lucky . One was not . A Canadian soldier on ceremonial guard at the Cenotaph was killed , but the jihadi himself was killed inside of Parliament House . Thankfully , security at Parliament House was just enough to cover the situation …

.. the hero was the Canadian Parliament ‘ s Sergeant at ARms , Kevin Vickers . Vickers himself was a long time RCMP officer before taking up his posting at the Parliament House . He was definitely armed . He took out the perp …

.. thank you Kevin Vickers , and God Bless You . You helped to prevent a much larger massacre …

… Our Troops have to Do What [#during Ramadan]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 4th,2014

.. I am a Roman Catholic , and I am gosh darned proud of it .

.. however , as Nancy Pelosi might soon find out about the hard way , Canon Law only applies to those of us of the faith . It applies to no one else …

.. as I understand it , for those of the jewish faith , Talmudic Law [I think the proper way to say it] only applies to those of the Jewish faith . It does not apply to others .

.. [h/t –– PamelaGeller]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. so , why do our troops have to participate in the observance of Ramadan ? That fact is ridiculous …

.. some things are understandable . Curtailing drinking ,for example . Also , US – sponsored religious services on bases are conducted in private , and are not advertised all that much ..

.. but this ?? : ..

Really? How about equal time for the Jewish faith? The Christian faith? The Hindu faith?

US military  are encouraged “to experience Iftar in a Ramadan tent.”

Why anyone who is not a Muslim must stop eating (except in secret) during Ramadan is another example of Islamic supremacism. Unlike Jewish law, which pertains only to Jews, and Canon Law, which pertains only to Catholics, the Sharia asserts its totalitarian authority over non-Muslims.

During the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, Jews fast from sunup to sundown. Nowhere and at no time has the idea of no one else eating been considered. Nor should it.

The idea that our servicemen and women cannot have a coffee on their drive to work is outrageous and indicative of how far the West has gone in the norming of the sharia. Muslims eat a giant meal before sunup, but our boys and girls can’t have a coffee while we defend these countries in many cases? Supremacism and submission.

And it doesn’t stop there. Our soldiers (men and women) must wear long sleeve shirts. No alcohol or smoking  is permitted, and if all this weren’t pathetic enough, soldiers are instructed to say “Ramadan Kareem.”

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 30th,2014

.. a Wuss in the White House .

.. the case of Meriam Ibrahim is gawd – awful and tragic . She is Sudanese , with a Muslim father who abandoned her soon after birth . She was raised Christian , and has always considered herself a Christian . She also married a Christian , and is the mother of a 20 month old son , and is also 8 months pregnant . So what do you think ? …

.. she was convicted of apostasy [for ” converting ” to Christianity] and adultery [for marrying a Christian] . She was sentenced to 100 lashes of a crop , and then has been sentenced to hang .. How disgusting , immoral , and unnatural is that …

.. How immoral and unnatural is Shariah law ? I would say plenty immoral and very unnatural …

… Disgusting [the Sex Jihad phenomenon] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,September 27th,2013

.. I realized that this stuff could happen , but , like this ?!?! ..

.. News emerged a few weeks ago in Arabic media that yet another fatwa had called on practicing Muslim women to travel to Syria and offer their sexual services to the jihadis fighting to overthrow the secularist Assad government and install Islamic law. Reports attribute the fatwa to Saudi sheikh Muhammad al-’Arifi, who, along with other Muslim clerics earlier permitted jihadis to rape Syrian women.

.. Muslim women prostituting themselves in this case is being considered a legitimate jihad because such women are making

... sex jihadis ... [how sick] ...

… sex jihadis … [how sick] …

sacrifices—their chastity, their dignity—in order to help apparently sexually-frustrated jihadis better focus on the war to empower I

.. This goes to one of the many seeming contradictions in Islam: Muslim women must chastely be covered head-to-toe—yet, in the service of jihad, they are allowed to prostitute themselves. Lying is forbidden—but permissible to empower Islam. Intentionally killing women and children is forbidden—but permissible during the jihad. Suicide is forbidden—but permissible during the jihad—when it is called “martyrdom.”

.. One may therefore expect anything from would-be jihadis, regardless of how un-Islamic the means may otherwise seem.

.. Even so, this uncompromising mentality, which is prevalent throughout the Islamic world, especially along the frontlines of the jihad, is the same mentality that many Western leaders and politicians think can be appeased with just a bit more respect, well-wishing, and concessions from the West.

Such are the great, and disastrous, disconnects of our time.

.. there are two articles of note on this by Ray Ibrahim . One is [here] , and the other is [here] …

.. try three . this one is even worse , if possible . A ‘ sex jihadi ‘ is pregnant , … , and she has the AIDS virus (she and her fetus )  … that link is [here] …

… the Hell with No – Go Zones …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 27th,2013

.. I prefer when major news events happen to give it time to gel and settle in , before I think about it alot . I want to give it as fair a treatment as is reasonably possible , given the circumstances . I also do not want to go off “half cocked,” and say something insensitive or ill – mannered . I also do not want to be associated with the hotheads who mouth off on all sides of an issue . Waiting can often help , at least , I hope .

.. With the situation in many places in Europe , patience is not always easy . Islamic adherants have established no – go zones , basically “enclaves” within a country . Why ? You have emigrated to a free land , to enjoy the freedoms that that land has for its citizens . Then , you in effect “wall” yourselves off from the rest of society ? What sense is that ?

.. Part of emigration to a new land is the reasonable expectation that you are expected to assimilate into the new land . In some nations , assimilation is very slight , but it is expected . You most definitely are not expected to form an enclave within that nation , where another and alien system of rule of law and imposed religious faith is imposed on its residents . Whether they like it or not . To Do so defeats the purpose of emigration in the first place .

.. You have to wonder , though , with Islam . It seems only in the United States is Islam practiced relatively peacefully . Even at times , there are problems in different areas , usually due to cultural clashes .

.. In most of the rest of the world , there are many problems . The native religious faith(es) are being overwhelmed . Ususally , that happens by a falloff in the native birthrate , and a hyperacceleration in the Islamic – related area birthrate .

.. Eventually , there is going to be a reckoning with what is going on in Europe . I think that the eventual possibilities are a civil war , mass emigration , mass expulsion , or some combination thereof . It is not that I want it . I do not . It is what I see happening , sometime later in this century . And , regrettably , it will not be peaceful ..

.. There are two excellent analyses of the current situation , ones that I reccommend that would go with my own piece . One is an article on NRol , one by former prosecutor and Fox News commentator Andrew McCarthy . The other is a column from the Gatestone Institute , out of jolly ol ‘ England itself . Its author is Soeren Kern , who is a regular , whose column is carried at w3.pundicity.com .

… Pam Geller is worthy of our support !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,April 6th,2013

English: Photo of Pamela Geller

English: Photo of Pamela Geller (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

.. for those who do not know , Pamela Geller is a pro – liberty activist , not an anti – islam activist , or an anti – gay activist . She has worked tirelessly to alert so many people to the dangers that various groups present to our freedoms and liberties .  She has worked endlessly to raise funds and to advertise her causes , taking many chances with her own freedom and safety . As a result , she has come under assault countless numbers of times ..

.. Now , perhaps , she is taking on one of her toughest audiences . She is trying to bring awareness to the gay and lesbian communities of greater San Francisco about the dangers of radical Islam . I am no fan of the LGBT community , but they are in great danger from those true believers of Islam , for homosexuality in Islam is a mortal sin  , punishable by death .

.. On April 2, Salon magazine carried a column by Chris Stedman accusing Pamela Geller of trying to drive a wedge between gays and Muslims. To do this, Stedman depicts Geller as a desperate, anti-Muslim zealot who is loathed by the gay community ..

.. The problem : Geller is neither anti-Muslim nor without her supporters in the gay community. But these are facts that appear to have eluded Stedman . So that you can evaluated his column for youself , here is his aforementioned [column]

.. and here is an [article] from the San Francisco Examiner , showing the local

reaction to Pam ‘ s activities ..   

.. and [this] is an example from Long Island , NY (Nassau County) , where a public

official misused his office in order to get a speech of hers canceled ..

.. Please visit her website , how and when you can . Its name is Atlas Shrugged . Its

web address is http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com

… guys , you are not …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 2nd,2013

… Royalty ! …

.. It seems that their “royal highnesses” Mohammad Morsi & Mohammad Abbas are getting into the habits of their predecessors . They are prosecuting , er persecuting their “countrymen” on charges of “insult”. Wonderful ..

.. The “Arab Spring” was supposed to represent freerer speech and responsible actions ,  not another round of dictators ..

At least one of the complaints originated from the Muslim Brotherhood. It was filed by Brotherhood lawyer Mohamed Abou el-Enein who said Youssef used his show to “offend symbols of the nation such as President Mohamed Morsi.”   Hours before he complied with the summons, Youssef in a phone interview with a television station rejected the allegation that he had insulted Islam.   “If there is anyone who has insulted religion it is those who use Islam as a weapon for political reasons,” the Al-Ahram daily quoted him as saying.   Opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei called the actions against the satirist “pathetic efforts to smother dissent and intimidate media,” usually only seen in fascist regimes.

During a debate hosted by the American University in Cairo last February, Youssef said  anyone who does not follow the Islamists’ version of Islam is demonized.   In response to a question from the audience about where he saw Egypt heading in the next five years, he replied, “I certainly don’t know, nobody has the crystal ball. But let’s have fun while going there!”   Many Islamists do not share his sense of humor, however. Some have held protests  outside private television channels viewed as critical of Morsi, and last January Islamist lawyers tried to bring a lawsuit against Youssef for “undermining the standing of the president.” That complaint did not reach

Lese-majeste laws – outlawing acts that insult a sovereign – are in place in several Arab and European countries, including Jordan, Kuwait, Denmark and Norway.
