Another Banner Day for The Religion of Peace

Rushdie knighthood ‘justifies suicide attacks’

The award of a knighthood to the author Salman Rushdie justifies suicide attacks, a Pakistani government minister said today.

“This is an occasion for the 1.5 billion Muslims to look at the seriousness of this decision,” Mohammed Ijaz ul-Haq, religious affairs minister, told the Pakistani parliament in Islamabad. “The west is accusing Muslims of extremism and terrorism. If someone exploded a bomb on his body he would be right to do so unless the British government apologises and withdraws the ‘sir’ title.”

Students burn effigies of UK’s queen

In the eastern city of Multan, hard-line Muslim students burned effigies of Queen Elizabeth II and Rushdie. About 100 students carrying banners condemning the author also chanted, “Kill him! Kill him!”

Iran’s OCIC condemns British title for Rushdie

Organization of Culture and Islamic Communication (OCIC) by issuing a statement here Monday condemned giving title of ‘Sir’ to blasphemer Salman Rushdie by the Britain government.

It said in the statement, ” Honoring a hated apostate and one of the most disgusted persons in the Islamic societies is a clear sign of Islamophobia among high-ranking British officials.” “In the current world, the necessity of understanding and peaceful co-existence between religions and different ethnic groups are being underlined, but Rushdie’s being knighted by the government of Britain has hurt Muslims’ emotions and is contradictory to the principle of respecting other nations’ beliefs,” the organization said in the statement.”

The OCIC called on international community, Islamic centers, ulema, statesmen and all Muslims to condemn the action by British government and underline the necessity of respecting religious beliefs of divine religions.

Boy you gotta love that one: “Britain has hurt Muslims’ emotions and is contradictory to the principle of respecting other nations’ beliefs,”

Fact is we understand your beliefs all too well…

    Is this an example of Madrassa logic??

    ———-
    A) “The west is accusing Muslims of extremism and terrorism.”

    B) [implicit] The West is wrong about this characterization of our culture.

    FOR EXAMPLE…

    C) “If someone exploded a bomb on his body he would be right to do so unless the British government apologises and withdraws the ‘sir’ title.”

    And we can’t even blame it on booze!!

  • Good points all, Anon. How do you deal with this mindset, it is like a 2 year olds?

  • ptg

    The Religion of Peace technically requires good Mohammedans to “cut the heads” of infidels that refuse to submit. Blowing them up is only theologically effective if a Mohammedan martyr dies in the blast. There are too many infidels, but not enough martyrs or skilled headsmen to get rid of them all in a manner pleasing to Allah.

    A solution is pending.

  • Good grief. I am so tired of all of this.

    Bush must be thrilled it’s not his effigy, this time, that was being burned. For a change.

  • That is an effective solution PTG., I pity the poor fools who get caught by that sucker.

    It never ends Incognito and it won’t until the Iranian Mullahcracy is decapitated.
