Worthy of a wider audience

I'VE DELIBERATELY stayed away from this one, but I think this picture more or less sums up what I think about the situation. I wouldn't mind, but every one of the protesters I saw interviewed was English. What makes them think that they can step inside their extremist Muslim bubble every time it takes their fancy?

It would appear that the international space station astronaut’s thought there was a sudden flaring going on and all eyes went toward the sun. Alas it was not the sun but the sudden flaring of 10.000 Danish flags around the Middle East. Where did all the flags come from? I would not know where to get one except a very small one from Bligh’s Yacht Chandlers located at Capstan Full Strength dockside at Little Wedgehampton. Come on now; outside of Europe the only Danish flag any one recognises is that one hidden away on the Lurpack butter slabs. Speaking of which I understand the streets in the Middle East are paved with gold – butter that is. It’s melting and running all over the place. Why not send all the Butter to Kenya instead they could have used it? They started throwing Bang and Olfsen audio systems into the streets as well – that was from the burning embassies but they all disappeared – spooky. I did not notice any one throwing their Nokia and Erickson mobile phones into the flames – perhaps that’s taking paranoia too far.
Crumbs it’s just as well its not a tit for tat trade war could you imagine all those dates lying in the street of Aarhus and Aalborg (places in Denmark). The dogs would be pooing for months. There is solace in the fact that little else comes from the region (other than oil) and Europeans only eat dates at Christmas – crikey now that’s turning it all around.
Christians eating dates at Christmas I feel more apologies are needed.
I am so overwhelmed by guilt I am retiring to the sofa with a sloe gin and a turkey and ham roll and watching re-runs of Richard and Judy.

Ok here we go.
Now then now then lets just keep this civil for the moment and look at things with a p c blah approach.
Im lead to believe by those in the know (Mr Hamza?)that islam is not a promoter of violance. OK good so far - this leads me to believe that said protests will be conducted in an orderly christian manner. The protesters will of course be cognizant of the fact that by leaving their countries of oppressive control (something to do with the extreamist chaps running the show - often religious chaps at that too) they have a ´right´to protest. In a law abiding manner - lets not forget that bit. Although it may suit some because British law is essentially 10 commandment based (christian) and perhaps not worthy of following ´though shalt not etc´
But wait on; that bits written by the big prophet mo or one of hs followers at least. Yes thats right ego no violance at the protest, sorry drifting off the point there.
So we will have peaceful protests. But just in case we dont, I would like to know if anybody would be interested in contacting the Bishop of Theran to organise a peaceful protest through the streets of Theran- me thinks not.
Dont these folks realise how lucky they are to live in such an open society as ours Although at this rate Im not convinced it will be ours for that much longer.
It really anoys me to see these suicide bombers blowing people up. What ever happened to good old fashioned suicide you remember a dignified slashing of ones wrists in a warm bath. These people are taking our liberalism too far!
Whilst on the subject it would be interesting to ask the home secretart just how exactly he thinks bio metric iris checks and fingerprinting would have helped him catch keep tabs on Abu Hamza.
Ive seen the cartoons and dont find them nearly as offencive as Mel Gibsons remake of Monty Pythons classic ´life of Brian. It was pants.
Any way live and let live I say, find a space in the deserts outside of Mecca and go blow yourselves up there.

Greetings to Phatbobsmate.

Don’t hold back just say what you mean!!!

Nay lad lets keep this surreal what’s the point of gelding and hanging folks all over the place it makes the market place untidy and it whiffs a bit if you are down wind. There is nowt so good as a nice stoning or flogging on Friday lunchtime it just rounds off the weekend.

I think the protests should be restricted to Lego Land (At Billund in Denmark). We have all the factions represented with little Lego men (no women of course they can’t vote or say anything). Little placards for the protestors and a small embassy fire or two. The Lego firemen can try out the new siren on the yellow fire engine (wah wah wail) – Dos Jagos take note.

And another thing there is no Bishop of Tehran or Riyadh, for Christ sake (sorry I did not mean that), do you think we live in a tolerant society.

Nay lad get in the corner and have a word with yourself .

In Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific Rim ... Muslim Mobs spreading mayhem. It seems that these mighty mad Muslims are rioting and firing their ever-present AK-47s into the air because of cartoons. Yup ... this latest epidemic of Muslim outrage comes to us because some newspapers in Norway and Denmark published some cartoons depicting Mohammed.
Muslim outrage huh. OK ... let's do a little historical review. Just some lowlights:

• Muslims fly commercial airliners into buildings in New York City. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslim officials block the exit where school girls are trying to escape a burning building because their faces were exposed. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslims cut off the heads of three teenaged girls on their way to school in Indonesia. A Christian school. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslims murder teachers trying to teach Muslim children in Iraq. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslims murder over 80 tourists with car bombs outside cafes and hotels in Egypt. No Muslim outrage.

• A Muslim attacks a missionary children's school in India. Kills six. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslims slaughter hundreds of children and teachers in Beslan, Russia. Muslims shoot children in the back. No Muslim outrage.

• Let's go way back. Muslims kidnap and kill athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslims fire rocket-propelled grenades into schools full of children in Israel. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslims murder more than 50 commuters in attacks on London subways and buses. Over 700 are injured. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslims massacre dozens of innocents at a Passover Seder. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslims murder innocent vacationers in Bali. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslim newspapers publish anti-Semitic cartoons. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslims are involved, on one side or the other, in almost every one of the 125+ shooting wars around the world. No Muslim outrage.

• Muslims beat the charred bodies of Western civilians with their shoes, and then hang them from a bridge. No Muslim outrage.

• Newspapers in Denmark and Norway publish cartoons depicting Mohammed. Muslims are outraged.

Dead children. Dead tourists. Dead teachers. Dead doctors and nurses. Death, destruction and mayhem around the world at the hands of Muslims Muslim outrage ... but publish a cartoon depicting Mohammed with a bomb in his turban and all hell breaks loose.

Come on, is this really about cartoons? They're rampaging and burning flags. They're looking for Europeans to kidnap. They're threatening innkeepers and generally raising holy Muslim hell not because of any outrage over a cartoon. They're outraged because it is part of the Islamic jihadist culture to be outraged. You don't really need a reason.
You just need an excuse. Wandering around, destroying property, murdering children, firing guns into the air and feigning outrage over the slightest perceived insult.
I know and understand that these blood thirsty murderers do not represent the majority of the world's Muslims. When, though, do they become outraged? When do they take to the streets to express their outrage at the radicals who are making their religion the object of worldwide hatred and ridicule? Islamic writer Salman Rushdie wrote of these silent Muslims in a New York Times article three years ago: "As their ancient, deeply civilized culture of love, art and philosophical reflection is hijacked by paranoiacs, racists, liars, male supremacists, tyrants, fanatics and violence junkies, why are they not screaming?"

Indeed. Why not?
IF I can add to that. In my time in Oman the two bodies of servant girls One Filipina the other Sri Lankian found in industrial rubbish skips. Useless commodities beaten to death by their MASTER or MISTRESS, and dumped like dead dogs. No Muslim outrage.
Four, yes four Muslim men drug a young girl around 14 or 15 years of age. Then take her to a hotel room. I often wonder if she ever went out again. No Muslim outrage.

Muslim Mystery: Solved!

Everyone seems to be wondering why Muslim terrorists are so quick to commit suicide.

Lets see now.

No beer, No booze, No bars, No television, No cheerleaders, No baseball, No football, No basketball, No hockey, and No tailgate parties.

No pork BBQ, No hot-dogs, No burgers, No lobster, No shellfish, or even freakin' frozen fish sticks!

Rags For clothes, towels for hats. Constant wailing from the guy next door because he is sick and there are no doctors. 24 hour wailing from a guy in the tower.

You can't shave. Your wife can't shave. You can't shower to wash off the smell of donkey cooked over burning camel dung.

The women have to wear baggy dresses, and veils at all times.

Your bride is picked by someone else. She smells just like your donkey,but your donkey has a better disposition.

Then they tell you: IT ALL GETS BETTER WHEN YOU DIE!
