Islam gloating over Charlie Hebdo massacre

Islam needs an intervention #CharlieHebdo

So someone comes up to you and says the pattern on your shirt is offensive to them and they tell you to change shirts. You tell them to get lost and call them a nutjob. What a random thing to get in a fuss over!

Shouldn’t we then have the same response when a group of people decide it’s against the rules to make a depiction of a certain figure?

Look, I couldn’t care less what rules you choose to follow. I think it’s absurd that Muslims and Jews deprive themselves of the joys of bacon. But whatevs. Just means more bacon for me.

However when it comes to the cartoons, this isn’t just a rule that applies to the faithful. It applies to everyone. Chew on that for a second: I didn’t sign up for their religion, yet I still have to follow this rule?

It’s like negative billing on your cell plan, except when the phone company does it nobody dies at the end.

Here’s where things get really dangerous though. This isn’t just a view held by a small number of radicals. This is the rule for many Sunnis, who make up three quarters of the Muslim world.

    Islam doesn’t need intervention, it needs several nukes.
    PS I have apparently hit the conservative ‘big times’ I was recently ‘Banned/Censored’ for responding to that arsehole who insists we should ban all offensive cartoons of Islam.. My suggestion was to ban islam… Apparently that’s forbidden.

      I too have suffered from deletions and editing of comments that were seemingly harmless. Without going into the whole story, suffice it to say that because Canadian laws are severe the moderators must be extremely careful about the posts and comments.

    Intervention, hell! Islam needs an Inquisition!

    I read this talkback on JPost this morning – it is worth repeating:

    After the Boston bombing the news media spent days and weeks trying to determine why these men did what they did.
    They want to know what America did(!) to make these brothers so angry with us.
    They want to know why these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible.
    The media is in a tizzy about this new era of homegrown radicals and about why and how they can live among us and still hate us.
    A friend of mine from Texas explained it all to me:

    “Here in west Texas, I have rattlesnakes on my place, living among us.
    I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch. I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch.
    I have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the driveway.
    In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I encounter.

    I kill rattlesnakes because I know a rattlesnake will bite me and inject me with poison.
    I don’t stop to wonder WHY a rattlesnake will bite me;
    I know it WILL bite me because it’s a rattlesnake and that’s what rattlesnakes do.
    I don’t try to reason with a rattlesnake or have a “meaningful dialogue” with it…I just kill it.
    I don’t try to get to know the rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me.
    I just kill them. I don’t quiz a rattlesnake to see if I can find out where the other snakes are,
    because (a) it won’t tell me and (b) I already know they live on my place.
    So, I just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one.

    I don’t look for ways I might be able to change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake…I just kill it.
    Oh, and on occasion, I accidentally kill a rat snake because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the time.
    Also, I know for every rattlesnake I kill, two more are lurking out there in the brush. In my lifetime I will never be able to rid my place of rattlesnakes.
    Do I fear them? Not really. Do I respect what they can do to me and my family? Yes!!
    And because of that respect, I give them the fair justice they deserve….I kill them…

    …as someone else pointed out, Freedom Of Religion also means Freedom From Religion…

    Ezra Levant’s summary is the best I’ve heard.

    Look. The only message worth the bother of delivering to Islam can be delivered by ICBM and armed Christians and Jews paid per scalp to clean house.

    Reform Islam? You assume Islam is worth trying to reform.

    By the way—the left never had any values worth defending. All they ever wanted was to be able to whatever they wanted when they wanted to whomever they wanted and kill anybody who complained. Hajji is all they aspire to be. And hajji doesn’t even have to pretend to care about the proletariat.

    Charles Krauthammer has it exactly right – The Third Stage Has Begun.

    Clearly, our government’s response to Moslem terrorism is tepid? At a minimum, it will take a more pragmatic approach domestically to disrupt sleeper cells within the country and it wll take a far bolder, coordinated foreign policy to starve countries that support terrorism of markets and monies. No options should be off the table – none.

    The only question that needs to be answered is, “Does the political leadership in Canada have the will to defend life and liberty?”
