Muhammad: Prophet of Peace

I've started, I don't know how many, posts on the Cartoon Wars and/or the Global War today only to get interrupted and sidetracked with this and that then come back to the computer and delete the posts. But then, I happened to hear a sound-bite from one of our Sedition News Stations and stopped to listen a minute. Honestly! The guys on that show were doing a very 'intellectual' analysis of the silliness that people are upset over the Muslim rioting. They were saying things like of course the Muslims are upset and we just need to let them get it out of their systems. They were saying it was our fault for printing the cartoons, we should have known it would upset them. They were saying that MOST Americans are strongly against this war and don't believe we should be fighting this (oh really??). They were also saying that if we lived in the kind of poverty most Muslims live in, we'd be rioting too. I wondered how on earth these 'intellectuals' could be so out of touch with reality. But then, that's a question I find myself asking myself fairly often. Why are these 'intellectuals' on the Seditious Public Television Station so out of touch ... let's review just a few things that have happened today. So today, we have three people from Ohio indicted for treason [my word for the charges]. Another source.

The charges outlined in the five-count indictment include: conspiracy to kill, kidnap, maim, or injure people outside of the United States; conspiring to provide material support to terrorists, distributing information regarding explosives and making threats against the president of the United States. The most serious count that carries a maximum penalty of life in prison if prosecutors prove intent to kill.

In 2004 and 2005, the suspects recruited others to train for a violent holy war against the United States and its allies in Iraq, the indictment said. The group traveled together to a shooting range to practice shooting guns and studied how to make explosives, the indictment said. Around Jan. 27, 2005, Amawi communicated by computer with individuals in the Middle East, who told him some of the "brothers" were preparing to enter Iraq, according to the charges.

The men named in the indictment are: Mohammad Zaki Amawi, 26, who was a citizen of Jordan and the United States who lived in Toledo until August 2005; Marwan Othman El-Hindi, a 42-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen born in Amman, Jordan who lives in Toledo; and Wassim Mazloum, a 24-year-old legal U.S. resident who operated a car business with his brother in Toledo after entering the United States from Lebanon.

Lets see, what else. In Nigeria, Muslim rioting has killed 49 and seriously injured who knows how many others. Thousands have died from religious violence in Nigeria since 2000 and the violence is escalating dramaticly over the cartoons. At least 50 Christian churches have been burned in the last few days there. More here. At least one Catholic priest was burned alive in the rampages. Then the Christian community took revenge in a bloody rampage of their own. The Muslims out-killed and out-maimed the Christians by a long-shot. There are death threats against the Mohammad T-Shirt guys.

Another email claims to be from the terrorist group Al Qaeda. It reads, “You only have 5 days and your company will disappear. I promise!” The email is signed, Saalem Al Qahtani, Al Qaeda. One of the more disturbing messages simply says, “In two days we kill your family."

What I really like about this story is that when MetroSpy fought back by posting the emails on their website and refusing to be bullied, the threats dropped down drastically and they started getting nicey-nice emails like this one from Saudi Arabia.

Another says, “I am sending this e-mail and I hope that you understand that what you are doing is offending more than a billion people in the world. I hope that your sales with other stuff be billions but not for this one offending product.”

So, what's the lesson here? They are bullies and like bullies they fold the minute you stand up to them. They are just blow-hards. A U.N. envoy barely escapes a bomb attack. A car bomb exploded in Baghdad killing 22 and injuring 28. The targets were civilians.

Terrified children screamed while several women wailed: "Our children have died" and "the terrorists, may God punish them."

Or read Islam Online and see for yourself how the news is skewed to paint the Muslims as defending themselves against American and Israeli aggression. The top 8 stories have to do with the 'abuses' at Abu Graib and 'new' pictures are published there. See how nice our media is to help them like that! You can look at this that Blue Star Mom found. She also provides a link to Hamas videos, one titled, We Will Drink the Blood of the Jews. And you have Hamas calling for the nuclear destruction of Israel. Eleven journalists from five countries are facing prosecution over the cartoons. One said that the cartoons were not as damaging to the image of Islam as the rioting and the images of beheadings. So much for freedom of the press. This is getting really long and I haven't even gotten into the fact that there have been some websites shut-down to try to appease the Jihadist. Somali warlords battle Islamists. It seems natives of Mogadishu are trying to take their land back from the brutality of heavily armed al-Qaeda. It's been a bloody fight. It goes on and on. So here's one of the Muhammad Cartoons. Just so you'll know what all the fuss is about and you surely want to be able to recognize the Prophet of Peace.
