Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

ThreE QuestionS





My first question is this:

The Muzlim women, if thats what you can call these particular ones in Qum, (the second most sacred city in Iran) need a serious geography lesson.
Due to “sketches”, which were viewed as anti-Izlamic, women in Qum gathered around a holy place, a shrine and burned the Israeli flag.

O.K. am I missing something here?
The alleged offenders were Danish, and somehow yet again there is cause to burn the flag of Israel? If someone sees the logical deduction here. .please clue us all in.

In addition to the usual ranting, threatening and general barbaric responses- "Thousands of Syrians enraged by caricatures of Islam's revered prophet torched the Danish and Norwegian embassies in Damascus on Saturday “… In Indonesia they stormed the Danish Embassy.
NY Times

Buildings were burned down over a perceived insult in a cartoon.

“In Gaza, Palestinians marched through the streets, storming European buildings and burning German and Danish flags. Protesters smashed the windows of the German cultural center and threw stones at the European Commission building..”

Hamas called the cartoons "an unforgivable insult" that merited punishment by death.
That’s right..they said Death.

Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany said she understood Muslims were hurt — though that did not justify violence.
Correct me if I'm mistaken , but isn't that the very first lesson you teach your child in this life…Just because your feelings got hurt doesn't mean you have a right to hit someone. Is that not the sole difference between a human who is cultured and civilized and a human who lives by raw nature and barbarian impulses?

Which brings me to my second question:


What are Muzlim leaders and average "so called innocent civilians" doing to dissociate their faith from these extreme and violent measures to which things are being taken by the terrorists? Do you see rallies, public protestations by Muzlim clerics and citizens with respect to this deplorable behavior in the Muzlim world? I don't hear a peep.

Which leads me to my third question:


Iconoclastic expressions in America are generally condemned as being in bad taste. Despite this- there have been and are "so called artists" in America who create images deriding Christ. And as abhorrent as this is to most Americans – they do not burn down buildings or threaten to murder- in protest.Insulting and DerisorY material about women is so routine , it goes almost completely unnoticed.

This is not to say that this type of material should be remotely condoned…but one of the most
striking aspects of these recent events is the leverage of the Muzlim world, especially when there are perceived insults or "wounded feelings".
Did you happen to notice that No One in AmericA will publish the ‘cartoons'. For those who did not view them on the Internet, it is being described and left to the imagination.
Why is that?
The Press won't go near this one. Not even the self loathing N.Y. Times.
Not even the rags who will stoop to the lowest level and publish just about AnYthinG to get a good 'story."

Have they become sufficiently frightened?
It would seem that they have been served notice ..and they are complying.
While the aggrieved Muzlim “believers” call for executions, our country’s press is opting for censorship.
Pornography won't get censored.
Ads which offend women won't get censored.
Images which offend Christians or Jews won't get censored.
But…..THIS ..the press has been intimidated enough to refuse to reproduce.

My third question is:
WHY?

    Excellent questions that most will not answer.

    It boils down to poor education, and fear.

    The hatred of Israel by the Islamic faith needs no reason for those type of actions. They are not alone, remember the map behind the U.N. does not even have Israel on it.

    It is fear and confusion. It is the usual response of don't make the baby cry. Ted Rall and others produce truly tasteful and at times even racist. These cartoons, some of which could be inflamatory, are considered funny by the elitists. When there is cricism of them, well, the elitist response is you just don't get it.

    Yet, now when cartoons are causing terrorism, MSM is silent. If they posture on either side of the issue, they will be perceived wrong, and Lord knows, MSM cannot be wrong. If they side with the Danish press, they will offend our Muslim "friends". If they are against the cartoons, they are against the freedom of expression they hold so dear. They do not even have the courage to be hypocrites.

    Friday's Chicago Sun Times, though silent, did say more than any. In the editorial section Higgins had an excellent cartoon. It said it all.

    Never underestimate the power of stupidity in large groups of people.

    Witness the hive mind of Mass Media Podpeople. Ref: Congress; ghe stands in any football game.

    That illiterate/subliterate brainwashed Islamic butcher-prosucers would gather in a relatively large group to do something stupid is doubly explained: large group/Islamic. It's a done deal: stupidity in the offing...

    The old double standard prevents the media from holding Muslims accountable. The media give them a pass if they get offended. I'm sick of it.

    Great questions, Angel! Liberals are so hypocritical: a Crucifix in urine---that's just great, so artful! Editorial cartoons about the true state of Islam and the practice of Mohammed---slander, blasphemy, horrifying!

    As you know, I wrote about the same thing, but you beat me to it...

    so I guess you were the psychic inspiration for my post then?

    Either way, fantastic points, and thanks for pre-echoing my sentiments. Or am I echoing you? Oh who knows, it was just good no matter how you look at it.
