A FATWA ON THE DECISION OF CONSERVATIVE BLOGGERS TO UTILIZE THE CHARLIE HEBDO CARTOONS IN HOPES OF INCITEMENT TO VIOLENCE IN THE MUSLIM WORLD

Posted in CONSERVATIVE INCITEMENT TO VIOLENCE, FATWA, JIM HOFT, THE MEDITATORS, THE MUSLIM WORLD with tags , , , , , on 19/09/2012 by Majordomo Pain

Recently there have been rather inflammatory cartoons published of The Prophet [peace be unto Him] of the Muslim faith. We, Ourselves, have been asked Our opinion of these depictions and to offer The Meditator’s viewpoint on the purpose of the issuance and the motivation of American conservative bloggers to link to this magazine or to offer the pictures in their full and graphic detail.

On point one the French magazine in question is a satirical tabloid and We, Ourselves of the Collective, do recognize their right of free speech to publish what they will. Once again We must come back to the reasonable understanding that free speech does not allow one to shout fire in a movie theater. The people of the Muslim world have different values regarding their responses to violations of the tenets of their religion. We, Ourselves, do not, under any circumstances feel, however, that the law should be taken into one’s own hands. No cartoon, or any other artistic display should ever incite murder or violence of any kind. This said, the anger of Muslims is something The Collective can both grasp and understand.

The conservative bloggers in America act as spoiled children in this matter based on their bigotry to post these cartoons just as they supported the maker of the film Innocence of Muslims on first amendment grounds. Jim Hoft as a singular example has time and again seen the use of such materials to cause violence among the Muslim peoples, yet he contiues to post such things apparently with glee. This is his right but Mr Hoft must understand that his Soul bears a responsibility for any consequences that may arise from his need to bash others and puff up his ego.

What your world, the world of the living need from both sides in this issue is calm, discussion, compassion and above all listening vice violence, incitement and bigotry.

فتوى قرار من المدونين المحافظين على الاستفادة من HEBDO الكاريكاتير CHARLIE على أمل التحريض على العنف في العالم الإسلامي

مؤخرا كانت هناك التهابات الرسوم بدلا من نشر النبي [صلى إنا إليه] من الإيمان مسلم. وقد طلب منا، أنفسنا، رأينا من هذه تصوير وتقديم وجهة نظر المتأمل على الغرض من الإصدار والدافع من المدونين المحافظين الأميركيين لربط هذه المجلة أو لتقديم الصور في التفاصيل الكاملة والرسوم البيانية.

على نقطة واحدة المجلة الفرنسية في السؤال هو التابلويد الساخرة ونحن، أنفسنا الجماعية، لا تعترف حقهم في حرية التعبير لنشر ما سوف. مرة أخرى يجب علينا أن نعود إلى فهم معقول أن حرية التعبير لا تسمح لأحد أن يصيح النار في المسرح والسينما. شعب مسلم في العالم لديها قيم مختلفة بشأن ردودها على انتهاكات لمبادئ دينهم. ونحن، أنفسنا، لا، تحت أي ظرف يشعر، مع ذلك، أنه ينبغي اتخاذ القانون في أيدي المرء. لا ينبغي الكرتون، أو أي تحريض على العرض الأخرى الفنية من أي وقت مضى القتل أو العنف من أي نوع. وقال هذا، غضب المسلمين هو شيء والجماعية على حد سواء يمكن فهم وتفهم.

المدونين المحافظين في أمريكا كما فعل الأطفال مدلل في هذه المسألة على أساس التعصب لنشر هذه الرسوم تماما كما أيد صانع للفيلم البراءة من المسلمين لأسباب التعديل الأول. جيم Hoft كمثال المفرد لديه الوقت وينظر مرة أخرى استخدام هذه المواد أن تسبب العنف بين شعوب مسلم، إلا أنه ج

THE AMERICAN TALIBAN

Posted in DIANE VALENCEN OPINIONS, THE AMERICAN TALIBAN with tags , , , , , on 28/08/2012 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

I thoroughly enjoyed the season finale of the HBO drama The Newsroom I especially enjoyed Aaron Sorkin’s takedown of the far Right with Will McAvoy’s explanation of what has come to be called “Conservative” beliefs.

ideological purity, compromise as weakness, a fundamentalist belief in scriptural literalism, denying science, unmoved by facts, undeterred by new information, a hostile fear of progress, a demonization of education, a need to control women’s bodies, severe xenophobia, tribal mentality, intolerance of dissent and a pathological hatred of the U.S. government. They can call themselves the Tea Party. They can call themselves conservatives and they can even call themselves Republicans, though Republicans certainly shouldn’t. But we should call them what they are. The American Taliban.”

McAvoy is a fictional character but his words written by Sorkin are nothing more than the seed of Truth. This sort of retrograde thinking is certainly protected by the Constitution, a document that Tea partiers say they love and respect as a form of gospel. I find that their ideas are far more destructive than anything that has come across the social plates of Americans in more than 100 years. Those with the ideas of modern day Conservatives would find a pleasant place in America in 1900 were they all able to enjoy the sort of middle class affluence that existed in the middle of the last century.

At the website RedState I found a post written by Breeanne Howe [whose tagline reads, “Married to Ben Howe, sister-in-law to Caleb Howe. All glory goes to God.”] about the Jumah at the 2012 DNC sponsored by the Muslim American group, The Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs. Ms Howe’s post lead to a comment from Benson1 which reads:

The only thing wrong with this article is the false assumption there are Muslims who are moderate just because they appear to not have joined with the radicals. There are no moderate Muslims. You cannot be a Muslim, believe in the Koran and be a moderate. If your a practicing Muslim you believe the same way radical Muslims believe. You believe in Sharia, you believe all non-believers must become Muslim or treated as second class citizens and taxed accordingly, if even allowed to exist. You believe Sharia should replace the laws of the country your living in.

When Muslims outnumber infidels is when you’ll find out there are no moderates. Just because some Muslims are willing to stay home and let the radicals do the work for them is no reason to think they believe differently than the radicals. This kind of naivety will destroy any country that believes it. It’s time to stop spouting this kind of politically correct nonsense and face the truth.

This post has created a firestorm of response from conservatives with the counterpoint being added that Cardinal Dolan’s volunteering to give the benediction at the DNC in Charlotte next week was rejected by the organizing committee because they already had that slot filled. Conservative bloggers now have both a vague support of Islam by the DNC coupled with anti-Catholic bigotry they can slake the thirst of the base with.

What if I were to take Benson1’s comment and alter it to paint far Right Christian conservatives all with the same brush?

The only thing wrong with this article is the false assumption there are Christians who are moderate just because they appear to not have joined with the radicals. There are no moderate Christians. You cannot be a Christian, believe in the Bible and be a moderate. If your a practicing Christian you believe the same way radical Christians believe. You believe in Conservative ideological purity, you believe all non-believers must become Christian or treated as second class citizens and taxed accordingly, if even allowed to exist. You believe Conservative ideological purity should replace the laws of the country your living in.

When Christians outnumber Liberals is when you’ll find out there are no moderates. Just because some Christians are willing to stay home and let the radicals do the work for them is no reason to think they believe differently than the radicals. This kind of naivety will destroy any country that believes it. It’s time to stop spouting this kind of politically correct nonsense and face the truth.

How would that play at the next Tea Party Patriots meeting?

These are not really conservative beliefs. What the Tea partiers and other over 40 white men and women whose televisions are permanently glued to Fox News and whose radios are only tuned in to Rush Limabugh and Sean Hannity believe would make great conservatives of the past like Barry Goldwater and Alf Landon vomit.

THE CHIEF PROBLEM WITH ORGANIZED RELIGION IS HYPOCRISY

I read last night that a man named http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/03/iran-hangs-christian-pastor-youcef-nadarkhani/>”>Youcef Nadarkhani</a> had been executed in Iran. Mr Nadarkhani is still quite alive but the case gave me, as a demon journalist an opportunity to look at the Iran of today and the America ruled by theocrats tomorrow side by side. The conservative websites who sprung to support their martyr before news spread that the Protestant evangelical minister living in Iran was not dead are littered with comments about how intolerant Islam is.” The truth of the matter is, a least from where I sit here in hell is that the ruling and elite in Iran and the fundamentalist religious elite in America have only their holy books, language and geographical location as differences.

There has to be a clear distinction between the people who support war and killing, who feel they have a right to tell a woman what to do with her body, who feel they have a right to say who can and cannot marry despite engaging in sham annulments and divorce at an alarming rate, and who demand a lifestyle at a shameful level of greed and those who actually try to live their lives by the words and deeds of the Son of man as dictated in the Bible. I call these greedy, warmongering social control minded people Christianists. Christianists are the people curiously who hate Islam and Iran the most. Both the Iranian leadership of Ayatollahs and mullahs and the politico religious Christianists have corrupted their respective religion’s messages to the point that all are apostates.

When you come down to it this is all a horrible con being played upon people who need to be herded like sheep. The contraception thing in the United States is a dual edged sword. On one side it keeps women barefoot and pregnant, silent, caged and without the ability to seek their own paths. However, it does serve the Catholic Christianist purpose of having your own in church breeding farm for more future suckers. Newt Gingrich can have his past marriages annulled but divorce is not allowed. There are double standards for double standards in a religion that would prefer to institutionalize child rape rather than clean house and beg forgiveness from the Flock. 

One could go on for quite some time in this vein. religion is filled with hypocrisy but the one that glows brightest in the case of this Christian man in Iran is that most of the conservatives who wailed about his “execution” want the same sort of “my religion first” government to be in power in America as it is today in Iran. The Iranian leadership is conservative and theocratic; their beliefs, their religious beliefs are the law. This is precisely was far right religious conservative Americans desire. You see this now in personhood bills, anti-contraception efforts and you will see even more with the first airing of the ABC comedy “Good Christian Bitches.” The problem Christianism and Islamism alike is they are rooted in hypocrisy. The Iranian government swears to allow religious freedom however this could not be a larger lie. The American religious, from Catholic bishops to bloggers who wear their religion and their politics pinned to their right sleeves, feel that since white landed men, many of whom were Christians, founded America only their views should apply–legally. What a terrible standard to set for the rest of the world since all of this exceptionalism talk dictates that the rest of Terra should follow America on a path to freedom and prosperity. Hogwash! By its very actions in recent months American Theocrats have shown that they are jealous of the awesome racket the Ayatollahs have going in Tehran.
