"Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand" Mark Twain
Anyone who seriously believed after 9/11 that victory against the ongoing Islamic conquest would be accomplished by military force has by now been steadily disabused of that illusion after over a decade of political correctness, passivity and misguided campaigns to bring democracy to the Muslim world.
The war against Islam is not going to be won with guns or bombs. Force is merely the final solution to settling conflicts but Islam's violence is for now only the tip of the iceberg of a much larger campaign to make the world into an Islamic domain.
While we fight with police actions and holding elections, Islamists are seizing control of governments by force or by democratic elections. They are conquering African nations and staging civil wars in pacific ones. They are importing millions of Muslims to Europe and America as Europe's 'Palestinians' for a coming European Intifada. They are rewriting history to claim that Arab explorers originally discovered America and Australia giving them claim to the land. They are aggressively evangelizing hundreds of thousands a year to convert to Islam through misleading claims and marriages of Western women to Muslim men.
What we believe is a war, is merely a minor skirmish in a global conquest. While we spend billions of dollars and thousands of lives to stabilize a single Muslim country, dozens of non-Muslim countries including our own are being destabilized day by day.
The true war against Islam is not a military war, it is a cultural war. For Islam it is a religious conflict by an empire intent on transforming every aspect of life into one defined by Islam. For us it is about preserving our way of life. The cartoon controversy woke many Europeans to the fact that free speech and many of the other attributes of democracy that they take for granted are incompatible with Islam. Under the relentless pressure of multi-culturalism, they and we are increasingly deciding that our way of life has to bow to theirs.
This is the ultimate victory of Islam. Not the fall of the Twin Towers or any single act of terrorism is as great a victory for Islam as when our own government and press repeat their propaganda and muzzle their critics. This represents the submission of the West to their rule. It turns Islam into the only legally sanctioned religion in Western nations that have long since instituted separations of Church and State.
Islam cannot be criticized by any public figure without violence quickly following. Islam cannot be criticized by the press without violence quickly following. No disrespect, real or perceived, towards Islam can be tolerated either. This is the lesson Muslim violence is teaching in Europe and much of the European and American media, politicians and clergy are becoming quick students. Criticism of Islam by individuals will get you condemned as a bigot by those very same people who are for all intents and purposes collaborating with our new tyrants.
While the entertainers, academics and pundits of a liberalized West are free to criticize and impugn Christianity and Judaism, Islam is a No-Go Zone. While Judaism and Christianity cannot be taught in the schools of a liberalized West, Islam can and is. Muslim religious artifacts can be displayed, Muslim religion taught and its holy books present, where those of other religions cannot. This elevates Islam to a special status. It gives Muslims power over other religions and they use that power. In a society where traditional religion is mocked, theirs is held sacred. Is it any wonder that sheltered from any criticism or negative appraisal by the same comedians and academics who tear apart Judaism and Christianity; that the view of many will be that Islam is a better religion. And this is exactly what Muslims want.
Our culture is being invaded. Our nations are being overrun. In England some government offices banned mugs featuring Piglet on them. In Israel a woman was sentenced to jail for drawing a cartoon of Mohammed as a pig. In America defaced Korans are being investigated as hate crimes. This is the power of the law backing up the power of the cultural consensus of our politicians and press which prevents any criticism or mockery of Islam as if this were Saudi Arabia.
We can defeat Islam. We can stop this. If we fight back.
When Mark Twain said that, "Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand", he was speaking as part of a long tradition of American humorists who satirized the great and powerful, who knew that nothing so much cuts a puffed up ego to size and the insecure man hiding behind it, as a well told joke. Islam in our time is the biggest puffed up ego there is. A fraudulent religion based on the plagiarism of a vicious desert warlord turned into a global empire. There is not one thing new in Islam. Its only claim to power is that it is wielded by men more ruthless and murderous than any other today.
Muslim rage is not a strength. When Muslims riot screaming in the streets every time they're offended in some way, this is not the mark of a strong faith but a weak insecure one. So weak and insecure that it cannot turn the cheek or look down from a superior position of belief in the true God. Instead like all pagan savages it goes into a murderous rage because inside its worshipers know they are not the servants of a living God who can avenge all insults, but of a faith cribbed from Jews and Christians by an illiterate bandit who proceeded to win convert by terrorizing everyone who didn't join his gang of bandits.
Muslim rage does not emerge from a deep respect for Allah but from the knowledge that their entire system of belief is a fraud that could never stand up to any scrutiny. If the world's religions were paintings in a museum, Islam would be a child's dirty smeared finger painting all in one color.
Islam's drive for world conquest is a sign of weakness. It is a sign of a deeply insecure faith. But then most killers are driven by their own insecurities too. The man who opens fire on a crowded cafeteria is weak inside but that only makes his explosive violence more dangerous and it makes coddling him more dangerous because sooner or later he will kill.
The way to defeat Islam is never to coddle it, to enable its rages or its conquest of our lands. It is to stand up to it over and over again. It's to laugh at it. Yes laugh it and ridicule it. America is a collection of immigrants with the humorous traditions of dozens of cultures, Irish, Jews, Italians, Scots, Russians, Asians. We're not just the reservoir of the world's talent but its humor too and humor is the ultimate weapon against the balloon that is Islam. Islam can only expand by force. It can't leverage any real military force against us. Instead it expands by intimidation, by conformity, by deception, by political correctness. It has no defense against laughter. Men who are so insecure they would kill over a stray word here or there, can't stand up to being laughed at, to being ridiculed, to have their cherished values transformed into a laughingstock.
We're fighting a cultural war and humor is our best weapon. We've spent the last 50 years laughing and mocking every aspect of our societies. Let's turn that laughter on Islam full bore. And Islam's defenders will find it difficult to censor and silence humor, the way they can silence and discredit political commentary. To try and silence humor is to look like a prig and if there's anything our politically correct cultural overlords hate, it's to come out looking like the stuffy humorless totalitarian-minded fascists that they really are.
So go on telling those jokes. When the arguments run out and the rhetoric is exhausted, humor can always be fresh and a weapon no one can argue against. There's one thing Muslims can't stand above all else and that's mockery. It drives them mad and when that happens they show their true face beneath the false polite masks they so often wear, in a way that not even liberals can long ignore.
Battling Islam with humor quickly clarifies the stakes for the west in an undeniable way showing that our choice is between maintaining our freedoms or losing them forever. Islam's apologists, our press, our politicians, our academics have been cooking us like lobsters in a pot, slowly raising the temperature until we're broiling and barely notice it. Muslim rage raises the temperature a lot. It wakes up some of those in the lobster pot as the murders of Theo VanGogh and the Cartoon controversy did.
A billion plus Muslims around the world are shouting angrily demanding that we take their perverted homicidal mania of a religion seriously. Let's laugh at them instead.
Islam does not fear governments. It fears people. A government can be corrupted. It is just a matter of finding the weak links. Islam is an expert at finding the corrupt.ReplyDelete
A government can be cowered. The leaders can be weak and afraid of confrontation and its officials afraid of losing their social status. Dhimmitude is perfect for those types. They can have their social status and not have the perils of leadership.
An academy can make whole systems out of things that don't exist. They can be expert dhimmis.
Only an individual can be indomitable. Only indomitable individuals can form an army that can and will threaten to destroy the Jihadist utterly. Who will not seek an advantageous peace for the ruling class. Who will stay true to their ideals.
Islam creates an indomitable foe and it creates the weakest of allies. We need more than mockery. We need to laugh at what they think is inevitable victory and make them pay for their temerity. Then laugh at the irony.
You are the best. When I have more $$, which I will, I plan on funding you :)
Quick question, what is your best article for the idiots who post "I have Muslim friends. The terrorists don't speak for us. They don't speak for Islam." Is it the Sept. 2nd article called "Moderate Islam is a Myth," or is there a better article?
Again, you are the best.
This is what I've been saying for a long time. We cannot fight the threat of Islam with guns. We have to belittle it out of existence.

We have all been conned. You see, the big news is not what has been happening in France the past couple days. No, the news of consequence occurred in Nigeria on the same day as the Charlie shootings. It will be ignored because it does not fit the narrative.
On Wednesday, a Muslim army attacked a group of small towns and villages. Two thousand (2,000) people are reported dead, with hundreds more dragged off into slavery. Why is this being ignored by MSM?
You see, in the case of Charlie, talking heads will be busy for weeks debating whether the cartoonists’ provocative actions lead to righteous indignation among Muslims, which erupted furiously. When done, obfuscation will be the order of the day. As for the kosher market killings, well, if Jews were not wantonly killing Palestinians and occupying Palestinian land it would not have happened. Again, relativity will prevail – six of one is a half-dozen of another. There will be no really bad persons and Islam will remain “the religion of peace.”
But, in Nigeria, the helpless victims of Islam had done nothing to provoke violence other than simply being non-Muslim. These villagers were not in the business of printing cartoons unflattering to the prophet and they were not staunch defenders of the hated Zionists. Nope, they just were not Muslim and that was enough to bring down the wrath of god. Muslims behaved as Muslims do when no one is watching.
Oh, the Nigerians are not white or Western, which means they are uninteresting. Their fate has no relevance to the West. What happens on the “dark continent” stays on the dark continent. As an aside, Boko Haram (Western education is forbidden) is officially named, Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'Awati Wal-Jihad (People Committed to the Prophet's Teachings for Propagation and Jihad). As I said, there is nothing to see here.
There will be no great debates about “fundamental”, “radical”, or “faux” Islam when it comes to the dead in Nigeria and their killers. Dead in their thousands, they will make hardly a blip on the radar screen during any news cycle. Herds of news people will not trample the grass of Nigeria looking for great scoops and endlessly debating cause and effect and defending the benign nature of Islam. Because of this, you see, the actual murderous nature of Islam will remain hidden from view. That is the story. Again, consider: Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'Awati Wal-Jihad (People Committed to the Prophet's Teachings for Propagation and Jihad), aka Boko Haram.
I love Paris …
The sad reason that Nigeria was ignored by the West is that the victims are black, and wholesale slaughtet no matter who the perpetrators are is nothing new in Africa. Sad but true.Delete
Humor? No chance. You cannot shame a sociopath, and there is no room for irony or self-deprecation in Islam. Massive repression of Muslims is the only solution. Make them uncomfortable at best, fearful at worst. Curtail their civil rights. Place all mosques under constant surveillance. End all social welfare programs. Offer any and all free one-way passage to their ancestral country, and confiscate their passports on the way out.ReplyDelete
Or we can continue our suicide-by-sociopath appeasement and coddling.
Another great piece Daniel. The one thing I would take issue with is when you write that the Internet cannot be shut down. It can, and China is a prime example of it. While not completely shutting down the Internet there, it strictly controls it.....only one step away.ReplyDelete

Dear Mr. Greenfield,ReplyDelete
I normally agree with you. On this one, I cannot.
Douglas MacArthur — ‘Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons.’
As much as I think the 3 stooges spoof of Hitler and Mussolini was probably one of their funniest films, I doubt that one person in Dachau was freed by it. I doubt that laughing at a Nazi goon on Kristallnacht would have stopped the mayhem or led to a long life. The Popeye and Bluto cartoons from WWII (especially Hitler's "B-O") were funny, but probably did not result in any Japanese aircraft carriers sunk. Laughing at the Japanese conquerors in Nanking would probably be hazardous to one's health. I don't think that the Roman Empire was laughed to death. The Byzantines probably found little to laugh about when confronting the Muslim armies.
We should not lose our humor, but it is not a true weapon. It took massive armies to crush Germany, Italy, and Japan. So, what is different today?
Remember that notables such as Henry Ford, Charles Lindbergh, and Joseph Kennedy were inclined to praise Hitler and thought highly of him. Did he buy them? By the way, according to my parents, the pro-Nazi Bunds were strong in our part of the country, and laughing at them was not conducive to good health.
Today, many of our politicos and media say nothing that is critical of Islam, but I strongly suspect that OPEC oil money is responsible for a lot of this. Oil money has certainly bought a lot of influence in academia.
We do need a multi-faceted approach to ending this war, which is what it is. Stop buying OPEC oil and stop funding them. Call out the state sponsors of terrorism when it happens, and act accordingly. Tighten borders and immigration. Stop disarming the law abiding citizens and let us defend ourselves. Do you think Kristallnacht or Charlie Hebdo would have occurred if these guys thought they would be greeted by a hail of buckshot? These battles are won at great cost and sacrifice. We have the luxury to laugh after we win.
I have not yet been to Israel. I strongly suspect they have some humor to help them cope with the problems there. But it wasn't laughs that saved the Jews in 1948, 1956, 1967, and 1973. Laughs will not save the West. I will leave it to your imagination as to what I think it will take.

Gaza City, January 2 – The Islamist movement that controls the Gaza Strip urgently sought to undo an order it placed with an online vendor after discovering that the blow-up toys in the order were in fact inflatable, and not explosive.
Izzedine-el-Kassam Brigades purchasing coordinator Ayma Ful purchased hundreds of blow-up dolls via an online business operating via the e-commerce giant Amazon, thinking them the perfect toy to plant in Israeli preschools or playgrounds and wreak havoc.
But this morning he saw the order confirmation in his inbox, and realized something was amiss. Instead of innocent-looking dolls of the sort clutched by little girls, the list of items included a case of 200 inflatable, life-size dolls of the sort generally associated with lonely, libidinous men…

Suggesting in the first paragraph that we are fighting a "war" against Islamic terrorism is nonsense. A war aims to take the heart out of the enemy, by striking his strategic assets, his leaders, high-tech control networks, and any major weapons systems. Wiping out his cities and populations has long been a strategy that takes the fight out of enemies, endangers leaders and keeps them looking back over their shoulders. Our blood and treasure has been directed against their ignorant foot-soldiers and relatively small arms caches. We spend $millions to wipe out penny ante soldier-leaders and their cheap weapons, and we do this because our leaders fear losing power in a "system" they have learned to master, so the military action they chose is just enough to show they are "trying". That is what's behind "politically correct", maintaining the status quo and your position in the Big Government that allows little people large compensation, benefits, and privileges. Those leaders need to be dumped for some who know how to totally destroy an enemy.ReplyDelete
Fear and greed are the two greatest emotions that control man who is driven by survival genes that brought him thru long hardships on the planet. Terrorists are following the ages-old techniques of earliest "primitives". By being viciously cruel and savage, they inspire disabling fear in any surviving competitor. The little terrorist's greed for power and privilege is easily directed back to his savage nature. Fear is removed in him by religious leader-driven conviction that there is honor and reward in dying for Islam.
Since there are few strategic physical assets or major control networks, we have to attack what's left, the terror driving leadership. We attack the secular leaders, but fear that attacking the source of religious terror, in the mosques, will paint our leaders as savages, not the elite image they want. They "fear" to fight positively.
The easiest and most effective strategy would be to induce great fear in their religious leaders; few are that religious that they won't fear losing their power and lives.
If a force of unknown origin focused on the quiet disappearance of the most vocal and incendiary clerics that incite terrorism, perhaps after a particularly inspiring sermon, fear and wonder might slowly displace their hate and religious zeal. Just think about a better target and let us know.

"The way to defeat Islam is never to coddle it..."ReplyDelete
Unfortunately, that's what our governments have done....coddle, coddle, bow & scrape, beg & deny.
Look at what we let abusive domestic partners get away with to see how deep the problem is even without Islam...
My therapist said they couldn't figure out a safe exit for me and the kids because to leave would be to trigger him, perhaps fatally. For women like me, the most dangerous time was not the explosions but the aftermath -IF we left. Then his irrational fear and insecurity knew no bounds. Later, when I worked as a crisis counselor for abused men and women I sometimes lost partners who left but wouldn't/couldn't break all ties with family and friends.
The thing about irrational rage is that one has to be VERY careful in its presence. Had I ever laughed at the thin-skinned bipolar alcoholic to whom I was married, he'd have killed me and our children; he was trained in martial arts in the Marine Corps and he'd demonstrate how it could be done.
I DID learn to be an excellent mediator between him and his fears. Yeah, he was abused as a child, and had untreated PTSD before I even learned about bipolar disease. By the time I'd finished researching this subject I could've passed the state boards in psychology.
I wasn't ever a passive victim except during flash points when bowing my neck was the safest mode. The only way out of this hell was to pray he'd find someone else, which I did, incessantly. Does prayer work? I have no idea but it sure does structure the time while you're waiting for things to change.
And so it came to pass that he caught the eye of a younger, wealthy woman and I was finally safe. Not immediately, but eventually...
So, yes, I agree with you! Let's laugh. But do it behind bullet-proof doors.
We are already developing a kind of samizdat humor - the laughter of the oppressed Jews and the forsaken Russian people. People who live in fear develop a mordant, wonderful wit. .But those who've never been there don't get it. Here's an example:
Muslim wife, smiling: "Dear, do you think you're a pedophile?"
Muslim husband, frowning: "That's a big word for a seven year-old like you to use".

They also are very concerned about “revenge attacks” as if there were ever any precedent for this in the past…more sucking up to Muslims.

It takes thousands of missiles and dozens of terror tunnels under schools and neighborhoods before Israel acts against the war-mongering terrorists – and the numbers in Israel’s army almost match the number of terrorists in the employ of Hamas-Fatah and all the other groups stationed in the region poised to sink their hungry fangs in Jewish flesh.ReplyDelete

What has always been most comical about the adherents of Islam taking such extreme umbrage at the flimsiest slights to their faith is the blatant fact that the most egregious purveyors of offensive calumnies against the religions of the world, even worse than the atheists, are the Muslims. Anywhere in the world where Islam is the dominant cultural force the public discourse is filled with vile and hateful pronouncements about any and all religions which are not Islam. And it is not satirists or cartoonists that provide most of this nasty commentary but the highest level religious authorities of Islam, the Mullahs themselves. My personal response to the many demands for more respect for Muslim sensibilities hs always been two words...YOU FIRST!!ReplyDelete
For your interest; just after the initial attack on Charlie Hebdo HQ I posted an open question on Facebook asking whether the Prophet Mohammed was above satire or any form of criticism. Two of my muslim friends simply liked it without offering a response (a wiser choice in my opinion) while two responded with apologetics or an emphatic no. So as far as satirizing the Prophet goes, I don't think any faithful muslim can offer a clear 'YES' to what Charlie Hebdo and others are doing.....ReplyDelete

I get your point about laughter and satire, but I think it is step one of a two step solution.

A humor campaign is an excellent idea. But we should recognize it will never change the radical Jihadists, and is not intended to, the only way to change them is to kill them. The real target will be the leftist appeasers and so called moderate Muslim groups who protect and enable them. When the jihadists respond with violence, it will force the left to choose between free speech, and multiculturalists and appeasement. And if the left wont change, we expose them as the traitorous appeasers they are. It will ultimately take a long war to defeat radical Islam, but we cannot win that war until we have removed any power from the traitorous appeasers in our own midst.ReplyDelete
A paraphrased quote from Gandhi might be relevant "The purpose of civil resistance is to provoke a response, to expose the evil we are fighting against. We will continue to resist, until they respond, or change the evil". The real target for Gandhi was not the die hard colonialists, but the British moderates who tolerated it. Our anti Muslim humor campaign will be our civil resistance, and every time we provoke a violent response, we make the position of the leftist and moderate Muslim appeasers that much less tenable.

While Mahmoud Abbas, the murderous Arab terrorist who calls himself a Palestinian, marches "in solidarity" with the slaughtered victims of Muslim intolerance, the French and the rest of the citizens of the EU, need to demand an end to the blasphemy laws that criminalize free speech in the European Union, they need to free the men and women who have been imprisoned because of the EU's blasphemy laws, they need to put an end to the 751 "No Go Zones" in France (and throughout Europe), they must demand an end to Muslim immigration into the country and finally, they must overhaul the EU's very generous welfare system that allows Muslim men and their 4 wives and children, to live on the taxpayer's dime.
The 1 party not invited to today's march in Paris, was the 1 and only French political party that has been speaking out against multiculturalism and Europe's Muslim problem.
At the march today in Paris today, Turkish, Moroccan, Tunisian and Liberian flags were being flown. The handful of Muslims who decided to attend the march, called for education as the remedy for "intolerance", and Frenchmen echoed that same ridiculous sentiment.
So even after all of the bloodshed and death, political correctness reigned supreme today and NOTHING will change as Europe races toward annihilation.
Here's that Muslim Ridicule you ordered. Hope it isn't too hot for ya!ReplyDelete
It is difficult to laugh at Islam, just as it is difficult to laugh at cancer. Things that kill you are rarely a laughing matter. Still we must try.ReplyDelete
In 1964 Ronald Reagan gave a speech in support of Barry Goldwater's Presidential nomination. He called it "A Time for Choosing" and its last few sentences resonate beautifully over time. He said,ReplyDelete
"You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, 'There is a price we will not pay. There is a point beyond which they must not advance.' And this—this is the meaning in the phrase of Barry Goldwater's 'peace through strength.' Winston Churchill said, 'The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we're spirits—not animals.' And he said, 'There's something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.'
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.
We'll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we'll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness."
Islam, unlike socialism, both national and international, will condemn our children to more than a thousand years of darkness. Once the lights of civilization go out, they will never be lit again.
Islam is definitely a problem, but it's not the problem. That dubious honor goes to the West's very own Leftists. They are the ones who have so weakened the health of our nations that we have become vulnerable to the maniacal outbursts of 7th Century savages. The Left is like HIV in that respect. HIV/AIDS doesn't really kill people directly, but it compromises the immune system to such an extent that some other opportunistic pathogen will.ReplyDelete
Every Leftist bureaucrat, academic, journalist, and elected official is corrupting some essential organ of the national body, like HIV destroying a T-cell.
To be effective the insult should be so maddening or enraging that it causes the Muslim's head to explode like a Martian listening to Slim Whitman singing "The Indian Love Call"ReplyDelete
1) Face it: The West stands if fear of Islam.
Here in the U.S., you can have Our SIsters of Perpetual Indulgence, Hunky Jesus, "Piss Christ", etc.; but have you ever seen "Hunky Mohammed"? No. The West stands in fear of Islam.
That must change before we can fight back.
2) The Paris Attack and Western Elites
By Don Feder
Savages go on a shooting spree at the offices of a satirical magazine. While they're murdering journalists, the killers shout:
1. Hail Mary full of grace…
2. John 14:6
3. Shema Yisrael
4. Allahu akbar
A captive is beheaded by:
1. The Salvation Army
2. The Book of the Month Club
3. The National Geographic
4. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)
In Europe, demonstrators carry signs calling for "Death to the Jews" and proclaiming "Hitler was right!" are:
1. Octogenarian Nazis
2. Members of the Church of Scientology
3. Representatives of Jimmy Dean Pork Sausages
Someone who plants a shrapnel-packed bomb near the finish line of a marathon is likely to belong to:
1. an Ashram
2. a Reform synagogue
3. a Masonic Lodge
4. a Mosque
You’ll probably get death threats if you:
1. Produce something called “Piss Christ”
2. Make a movie that presents Moses as a psycho
3. Call Tea Party members terrorists
4. Do or say anything which shows Mohammed in an unflattering light

There is merit in giving the Musloids inclined to violence so many targets they cannot possibly focus upon one and inhibit others. Of course, there is also merit in having all who hold forth armed to the teeth.ReplyDelete
Japan never has problems with Islam, why ?, Japan believes in the freedom of religion but Islam is not a religion according to their laws, it is a political terrorist group which seeks to take over the world by force. Therefore Islam is illegal in Japan and muslims can only come to Japan for business and must leave with in 30 days or be granted special permission to stay any longer.. if you live there and caught practicing it, you get charged with terrorism and go to prison.ReplyDelete
Laughing may sound like a good idea, but for Islam it will not work, what we need to do is start deporting them and the ones that are natural born in America be put in jail, every time they suggest, threaten or make comments about hurting others.
As far as dealing with Islamic nations ?, cut them off, give or take nothing from them and don't even recognize the nations they live in and simply force them to live in isolation.
Islam is not illegal in Japan, that's a mythReplyDelete
BDS is BULLY, DECEIVE, SMEAR
There is a Jewish tradition that by naming something, we control it. (Therefore, the more observant never say the name of G-d.) Isn't it time to use this outlook to shift public consciousness about BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions)? All references from pro-Israel sources to this pernicious movement should be to "Bully, Deceive, Smear" .
Bully – BDS supporters bully pro-Israelers on the campus (see Michael Oren at UC Irvine) and widespread campus and street confrontations; the self-righteous bullies accusing Israel of bullying.
Deceive – the cry is “Free Palestine” while the intent is “Death to Israel”
Smear – Israel the Apartheid state? Arab Supreme Court justices, high-level academics, beauty queens; freedom of speech, worship; universal vote; women's and gay rights...the only haven for Christians and the only democracy in the Middle East
The laughter might be therapeutic for us, but it does not break through the wall of their insanity to improve them.ReplyDelete
Here is something humorous - Islam really is a lot of laughs!ReplyDelete
The Qur'an says that the earth is flat and the sky is a roof overhead without cracks (Q.88:20, 79:19, 13:3, 15:19, 50:6-7, 2:22, 51:48, 20:53, 43:10, 78:6, 91:5-6, 13:3). The sun sets in a pool of muddy water. (Qur'an 18:86) and travels to Allah's throne where it stays overnight.
In addition, the Islamic god created the sky after He finished the earth’s creation and everything in it. He turned His attention skyward and made the ceiling (sky)over the earth into seven skies (Q. 17:44, 23:9, 86, 65:12, 67:3) one on top of the other (Q.2:29, 41:11-12) held up with unseen pillars. (Qur'an 13:2).
"Then He turned to sky when it was smoke. In two days He determined them as seven skies and revealed, in every sky, its own mandate." (Qur'an, 41:11-12)
Next, the islamic god adorned the lowest sky with little lanterns (stars) and two big lanterns (the sun and moon). According to a Hadith [Saying of Muhammad], at night, the sun goes somewhere above the 7 skies to The Glorious Throne of Allah and stays under The Throne until morning.
The stars are actually missiles which the Muslim god throws at Jinn (creatures made from smokeless fire) who travel up to the sky to listen in on heavenly conversations about the future so they can repeat what they have heard to soothsayers. (Qur'an 37:8, 67:5)
"We [the jinn] made our way to high heaven, and found it filled with mighty wardens and fiery shooting stars. We sat eveasdropping, but eavesdroppers find stars lying in wait for them. We cannot tell if this bodes evil to those who dwell on earth or if their Lord intends to guide them." (Q.72:10, The Jinn)
Muslims must believe everything in the Qur'an as these are supposed to be the words of their god as told to His messenger (Rasoul) Muhammad by means of a 600 winged spirit called ar-Ruh al-Quds.
The Qur'an creation stories are pretty funny and Muslims must believe every word that is written in the Qur'an, including the following:ReplyDelete
"Are the disbelievers unaware that the heavens and the earth were one SOLID mass which WE tore asunder, and that WE made every living thing from water?...We spead the heaven like a canopy and provided it with strong support...And they deny all mention of Ar-Rahman (the Babylonia Thunder God)."
It took Al Ghafur four days (Q. 41:10) to put the right amount of goodness in the earth to make it suitable for habitation. But, the earth floats on water in a similar way a ship does, which caused a dangerous degree of instability and had to be stablized with mountains which were thrown down on it:
We threw down (like anchors) firm mountains upon the earth lest it should move with them, and hewed out highways in the rock so they might be rightly guided. (Q. 21:31)
We spread the sky like a canopy and provided it with strong support: yet of its signs they are heedless. (Q. 21:32)
"It was HE who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon: each moves (swims) in a path of its own." (Q.21:33)
And here's a good one: the moon is further away than the stars!
the “moon in the midst of 7 heavens” (Quran 71;16), but according to Qur'an 37;6 the “stars in the lowest/nearest heaven”
Let's laugh at the real stuff! There is much humor to be found in the Qur'an in between the roasting of non-believers in hellfire or terrorizing them with beheading and/or amputations. For example:ReplyDelete
At first, Muhammad's al-Ilah (Arabic meaning god) created only one Sky, but after He finished the earth’s creation (including everything in it) He turned His attention to the Sky and made it seven skies (Qur'an 17:44, 23:9, 86, 65:12, 67:3). He did that in two days (Qur'an 2:29).
The moon is farther away than the stars.
Qur'an 71:16 - the “moon in the midst of 7 heavens”; but, according to Qur'an 37:6, the “stars are in the lowest/nearest heaven” and Qur'an 13:2 says that the sky is a ceiling overhead held up with unseen pillars.
Qur'an 22:65 says - "He (Allah) holds back the sky that it may not fall on earth except by His allowance." [Good thing too - because it is full of stars!]
Qur'an 37:6 says that stars are guards against devils and jinn (geniis), so they won’t eavesdrop on heavenly conversations among the angels; and, in Qur'an 37:10, the shooting stars (meteors) are projectiles fired at the eavesdropping devils and jinn (geniis).
The Islamic god controls all the natural forces that Muhammad could not explain:
Qur'an 30:49, 35:9 - "He drives the winds..."
Qur'an 25:48 - "and stirs the clouds and breaks them up"
Qur'an 13:13 - "He hurls His thunderbolts at whom He pleases."
Qur'an 16:79 - Birds are able to fly because Allah holds them up in the vault-like space under the ceiling from which Allah has hung the little lanterns (stars).
Qur'an 36:38 says that the “sun runs to a fixed resting place”
And this great chuckle comes from the aHadith (sayings of Muhammad):
Bukhari 4:494 - "the sun rises between the 2 heads of Satan"

"The Battle for British Islam "ReplyDelete
BBC TV documentary, January 12, 2015
28 mins video.
-Not the usual BBC propaganda.
Here's what's going to happen: Western Culture will ask for the privilege of mocking Islam. Islam will say "If you tear down respect for Christianity, we will tear down respect for Islam". We will tear down respect for Christianity. Islam will remain uncriticizable.ReplyDelete
A slum is a slum. Where on earth can you find a false prophet but in the desert of Arabia. Where there are wandering dervishes to be seen at every oasis looking for people to exploit. One has only to read al-Qur'an to realize that it rightly belongs among the stories of the Arabian Nights, genies and all!ReplyDelete
Thank you Daniel. I started to see MAD Magazine's Alfred E. Newman in Mohammed garb last week. I laughed till I cried. We all know Mad Magazine. Mad Magazine is the Charlie Hebdo of America! I have decided that whenever I see a post somewhere, where someone has found a Mad Magazine with their depiction of Alfred E. Newman dressed up like Mohammed...I will print it out, and make a bunch of copies and leave them around. You are so right...No bully likes to be laughed at. Human nature is to destroy that which we fear the most. Muslims FEAR us, because when all the trappings of their FAKE RELIGION are ripped away from them, they have NOTHING.ReplyDelete
I agree, Daniel, but ultimately, the West is going to have to confront ISIS and Boko Haram on the battlefield. They must be killed. Yes, thousands more will rush to join the battle, but they must be killed as well.ReplyDelete
Secondly, Muslim immigration to the West must be stopped. Western nations should hold a summit with friendly Muslim nations and tell them, "Sorry, but until the madness stops, we have to protect our own people. You take care of the problem in your own countries and we don't much care how you do it."
Promoting democracy, which many US Muslim apologists advocate, doesn't work. Why should we try to promote it when it never existed?
The good news is that with every passing day and every passing atrocity, the public is waking up. Every day, more people realize the truth about Islam. That number can only increase. It will not go down. People like you are playing a valuable role in spreading the message.
If the war against terror is a culture war, we are doomed. It is a war then between the a once Judeo-Christian culture who have traded that for a decadent, debauched, perverted, greedy, corrupt, mind-warped, slothful, brainwashed mass of robotic thought favoring slavery to an all-controlling state rather than liberty because liberty demands vigilance, responsibility and to take up a sword now and then, and a Muslim Islamic culture that is passionate enough about their god and the way of life they believe he set for them and are willing to die for him. Who do you think has a better possibility of winning the war?ReplyDelete
Well, I guess these Moslems are just born to die and Hell has to be inhabited by somebody, so why not their ignorant selves?ReplyDelete
Don't the African countries see the repeat of history? Arabs are once again dragging the folk off into slavery. The only difference is they are not selling the people. The''slaves'' are either for sex, women and young children of either sex. The elders are murdered.ReplyDelete
It may be the Chinese that will eventually do it! Simply stated they need to be decimated, then the laughter will be satiatedReplyDelete
I know some good ole boys down here in Alabama who would like a crack at them Dang Mooslims!ReplyDelete
Please listen carefully. There is a right and wrong way to go about this. First and foremost we must expose and laugh at the stupidity found in the Qur'an itself and Islamic teachings. SOME muslims will wake up because even most of them are not devout and dont know the full extend of Qur'anic idiocy. Added benefit is that this pisses of the devout lunatics the most.ReplyDelete
Making jokes that are racist or bigoted only plays into the hand of the apologists. They can point fingers, label you racist and after ignore ANYTHING you say by default. So no jokes about arabs and sheep, please restrain yourselves. All arabs are not muslim and thus not the enemy. A good joke exposes the atrocities:
"My daughter always dreamed of getting married when she was a little girl. So we converted to Islam."
"A woman converting to Islam is like a black man converting to slavery"
Keep up the good work!
