Waste of time
Run, don't walk, to read this
Bibles in Saudi Arabia
I have been wasting my time here. It seems that someone
has already done the heavy lifting.
Via Dean's World
comes this piece
pointing out the hypocrisy of the Saudi's and other militant Islamic enemies of the USA.
The Bible in Saudi Arabia may get a person killed, arrested, or deported. In September 1993, Sadeq Mallallah, 23, was beheaded in Qateef on a charge of apostasy for owning a Bible.
Sort of odd, considering Islam considers the Bible a holy book that is superceeded by the Qur'an.
Makes you wonder about the response to the faked story about the Qur'an and a toilet...
Is there any question that these people are mad?
I would echo these comments
from Robert Spencer. The thing that everyone is missing in this story is that the rioters killed because someone may
have flushed a Qur'an down a toilet. Is that really
a jusification for murder?
The question here is one of proportionate response. If a Qur'an had indeed been flushed, Muslims would have justifiably been offended. They may justifiably have considered the perpetrators boors, or barbarians, or hell-bound unbelievers. They may justifiably have issued denunciations accordingly. But that is all. To kill people thousands of miles away who had nothing to do with the act, and the fulminate with threats and murder against the entire Western world, all because of this alleged act, is not just disproportionate. It is not just excessive. It is mad. And every decent person in the world ought to have the courage to stand up and say that it is mad.
I for one will stand up and say it is madness. I have been saying that for quite some time now, just not a well as Mr. Spencer.

DUmmies at it again
I am pleased to announce that The Qur'an Project is the 4th hit on a Google search for "Piss on the Quran"
Thank you to out Google overlords and the visitor that got here via that search!
The denizens of "Democratic Underground" are at it again...
As of this post the majority (60%) think that al Qaeda is "A completely fictional organization".
We have much to learn and those of us who "get it" have much to teach...
