The latest message from bin Laden and his Egyptian pal
"They steal our oil, invade our countries and then make fun of Allah in their cartoons"

They are actually bringing cartoons into their plan to encourage blowing up the Saudi Arabian oil reserves and processing plants.


"cartoons that ain't funny aren't cartoons"

Nothing could be further from the truth.
Some are a mirror that may reflect darkly or ironicly.
Some can be a hammer that can pound home a truth and shape the mind set of society. But the laughter they produce in is proportion to one's understanding of the underlying truth cartoons illuminate.



Parody songs are cartoons too.

My tune regarding our "addiction"

When you fuel up your car
you know you won't go that far
Oleen
When we import the oil
Muslim blood starts to boil
Oleen
we want gas we want gas we want gas...
oline

For all the flags that wave
it is the oil we crave
Oleen
For all the smog you've seen
there is a dead Marine
Oleen
We want gas we want gas we want gas
oline.

When we pay the gas bill
we're so broke we could kill
Oleen.
All the oil companies
have brought us to our knees
Oleen.
We want gas we want gas we want
oline.

Has anybody else seen a photo of our solar system, or galaxy - something like that - with an arrow pointing to where we are.

Our planet is vanishingly small.

Do you think looking at a photo like that, meditating on it, and any consequences worth us all doing?

Might we get our problems in any kind of proportion?


Alternatively, perhaps alaws should be passed banning self-confessed fundamentalkists (hm?) from viewing any material that they might be offenfded by.

Aha, so BLISS could be achieved by the standard means. By glorious IGNORANCE.

I mean, why sell stuff to people who are going to choose to be offended. The refusal would be for the best of reasons, so people don't get distressed.

Couldn't it be compulsory on things like passports for "fundamentalist"to be added to the data.

Or we could deal with two probs together by getting out of oil fast, thus responding to the fundamentalist problem and the future of that big, chunky lump of rock that seems important to us, what's it called, ohhhh, that thing that's like a spouse, can't live with it, can't live ...............

Found this by Irshad Manju, author of "The Trouble With Islam Today".

Thought it puts it pretty well.

"When Muslims put the prophet on a pedestal, we are engaging in idolatry of our own. The point of monotheism is to worship one God. not God's emissaries. Which is why humility requires people of faith to mock themselves--and each other--once in a while."

Then he also offers this, his illustration of the technique.

A rabbi, a priest and a mullah meet at a conference about religion, and afterwards are sitting around discussing their different faiths. The conversation turns to the topic of taboos. The priest says to the mullah and the rabbi: "You guys can't tell me that you've never eaten pork". "Never!" intones the rabbi. "Absolutely not!" insists the mullah. But the priest is skeptical. "Come on, not even once?" Maybe in a fit of rebellion, when you were younger?" "OK" confesses the rabbi. "When I was young, I once nibbled on bacon". "I admit it", the mullah laughs-- (not excessively- Islam has a teaching against "excessive laughter".) " In a fit of youthful arrogance, I sampled a pork chop".

The conversation turns to the priest's religious observances. "You can't tell me you've never had sex" says the mullah. The priest protests: "Of course not! I took a vow of chastity". The mullah and rabbi roll their eyes. "Maybe after a few drinks?" the rabbi teases. The mullah wonders "Perhaps, in a moment of temptation, your faith waned?" "OK," the priest confesses, "Once, when I was in seminary school, I had sexual relations with a woman".

"Beats pork, huh?" say the mullah and the rabbi.

Plot Summary for
The Fistic Mystic (1947)

Popeye and Olive enter the city of Badgag and spot Bluto doing magic tricks. He hypnotizes Olive like a snake charmer. Bluto introduces himself as the Great Bourgeois and gives Olive a fancy dress, turns Popeye into a donkey, and sits on a bed of nails. Popeye pounces on the bed and turns it into springs. The boys next compete in snake charming; Popeye blows a hornpipe on his pipe. Bluto next turns Popeye into a parrot. Bluto then locks Olive in a basket and does the sword trick; Olive escapes and gives parrot Popeye his spinach, which revives him. Bluto escapes with the rope trick and a flying carpet, but Popeye uses his pipe like a rocket to get aloft. Another battle, with Popeye using Bluto's own magic to turn Bluto into a canary. Popeye and Olive fly the carpet home, past the Statue of Liberty.

should point out that there was a Muslims-protesting -against -the-muslim-extremists march in London last Saturday without major incident.

Rank-and-file Muslims (if you'll forgive me putting it like that) do highly resent Islam being hijacked by extremists. Unfortunately, peaceful demonstrations tend not to be publicised round the world.

Anmd I keep hearing on BBC radio that Islam is at bottom a peaceful and tolerant religion.

michaelr. You ask why religion preaches peace and spawns fury. Well. we've had a whole thread (Religion=good people doing bad things?" - hope I've got that right) and the answer to you're question was amazingly ambivalent and arguable.

Maybe the answer is to differentiate as sharply as possible between all religions and their adherents.

That way the US wouldn't feel "compelled" to police the world. This body should be supported by world governments but be able to quickly decide to take action when necessary.

The freedom to do satire and cartoons has been long fought for in may countries. In my country, Germany, most of the left caricaturists and writers have been in conflict with the blasphemy law at least once: Heinrich Heine, Bert Brecht, Otto Dix, Kurt Tucholsky, George Grosz, Kurt Weill,...

George Grosz did a famous cartoon showing Jesus at the cross with a gas mask in 1929 and the court case ended with a draw. Tucholsky, the greatest of them, commented then: "A religion that has blessed the battles of the Great War has lost the right to feel insulted". And one of his famous lines was: "What is allowed to satire? Everything."

Of course, this freedom was lost during the totalitarian Nazi regime and was fought to get back in the late 1960s. Totalitarian regimes (and belief systems are afraid of satire. In 1992 an Iranian caricaturist was sentenced to 10 years for a cartoon showing war-disabled Mullahs at a game of football.

Totalitarian thinkers are afraid of laughter. That's why we need laughter, and in particular laughter about them and about what is dear to them.

There are social psychopaths or people who misuse the power of an established culture or nation to do great harm, but it is nearly always done to reap perceived wealth and treasure.

Sometimes the stolen treasure does benefit the victors and the world.

Lonesome EJ says, "But their intent, I believe, is moral."

Killing, in my opinion, is entirely immoral. It doesn't really matter if its a suicide bomber or an American bomber pilot. The goal is to kill and innocent people are killed by both.

Every few thousand years some shepard inhales smoke from a burning bush and has a vision or eats moldy rye bread in a cave and sees God. From then on their followers kill one another at the slightest provocation. Haunted houses called temples are built by one side and torn down by another - and then bloody quarrels continue over the crumbling foundations.

Organized religion preaches Order and Love but spawns Chaos and Fury. Why?

In other words, they all murder...but each uses the maximum force he is capable of. The basic intent is the same.

It's all terrorism.


As they say in England, LH, Bollocks.

Intent is indeed a determining factor. Let's apply the "Perfect Weapon Test" to the Muslim bombers, and to US forces in Iraq. This exercise says "if this person or persons was equipped with the perfect weapon to achieve his goals, what would that weapon do?"
The goal of a suicide bomber is to take his own life as well as the greatest numbers of infidels possible. His perfect weapon would be one which would cause the most death to those infidels around him, and his interest is not in their degree of guilt or sinfulness. He's going to take every body in a 100 square mile area if he has the perfect weapon.
The goal of an American bomber pilot in Iraq is different. His primary interest is not in causing indiscriminate destruction. In fact, that is counterproductive to his aim. That's why they call it "peripheral damage". His interest is in killing enemy combatants. His perfect weapon would kill a nest of Al Qaeda operatives or Saddam loyalists, while injuring no women, children, or innocent people.
In the real world, there are no perfect weapons, granted. The nature of guerilla warfare is always such that the innocent suffer. But to say that the suicide bomber and the bomber pilot have the same intent is just more of the "how can you condemn a person's bad behavior when we are all basically bad" argument. Even in the clearest-cut scenarios of human struggle, let's say the D-Day Invasion of Hitler's Europe, innocent people were caught in the bombing and crossfire of American, British, and Canadian troops. But their intent was to liberate, not to destroy them. To say that Canada's D-Day troops and Hitler's SS had the same intent would be a statement that revealed no basic moral or ethical perception in the speaker.
The strategy that put American troops in Iran may be questionable. The impact of those troops may even be negative. But their intent, I believe, is moral.

If Hitler killed Jews in the name of Christianity, than it should have been the job of every Christian to stand up and be outraged.

I do not, in any way, shape or form, blame all Muslims for the acts that I cited. I am outraged that so many are silent when such attrocities are committed in their name, yet they can not remain silent in the face of a few cartoons.

That is my point.

In my, not so humble opinion, no cartoon, no matter how insulting, is worth such outrage.

However, every innocent death demands it.

As an American, I have stood up and demonstrated against the illegal war in Iraq and against the lies of the Bush administration. I am outraged that we went to war, and about the thousands of lives lost on all sides, and that Bush justified his oil war on lies.

This is redounding to the benefit of 'W' and the current US Administration whether we like it or not. Directing street violence at Northern Europeans based on mild satire is Orwellian in its implications of mass thought control. I'm bemused by the American government's rather passive stance as opposed to the Europeans. I can't decide if it's a case of tit for tat because of lack of mainland Europe's support on Iraq, or a positively Machiavellian view that it's worth having Europeans take some Islamic heat for the time being.

Who would be surprised if:


Reports are sketchy in a very fluid situation but...
Nulclear war has broken out in the Middle East purportedly over a cartoon found in a MAD magazine!
US intelligence sources speculate that a Sept 2005 issue of MAD Magazine was misconstrued by high level Miltary Commanders in Pakistan to be a US goverment document regarding Mutually Assured Destruction. One particularly pointed cartoon of bin Laden outraged a Pakistani General who then arrested and killed Musaref.

Although Iranian sources claim that the US had nuked Isreal the radioactive spectrum indicates it was a Pakistani device that first leveled Jerusalem.

In retaliation the cities of Cairo, Tehran and Ramalangadingdong have been wiped from the map.

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 busses. 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 thousands of 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, then hang them from a bridge. No Muslim outrage.

Muslims chop the head off of Daniel Pearl, a journalist on assignment in Pakistan. No Muslim outrage.

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

Turkish Muslims tell stories of Nassir ed Din Hodja, a real Muslim cleric from the middle ages. They're pretty damned funny. There are some funny stories in "The Arabian Nights" too. Many of them quite ribald.
It's only recently that the Muslim world abandoned yuks.
When Muslim clerics objected to "The Satanic Verses" Salman Rushdie had to go into hiding.
When the Pope complained about "The DaVinci Code", Dan Brown probably cried all the way to the bank.
I hope to gracious no one from the Christian Right takes inspiration from these people. Imagine if, the next time some television show makes tasteless jokes about Christ, their offices were vandalized, or network affiliates were firebombed, or cable and satellite companies were attacked.
My favorite cartoon on the terrorist virgin theme, was Jules Pfeiffer's after 9/11. Satan meets the terrorist to show him his new house, a doll house, his new car, a toy car, and his virgins, all penned up and baaing, as a flock of goats is wont to do.

One thing to note. I've read that Islam(not the Koran) forbids depicting the prophet Muhammed for fear of it becoming idolatry. But does not this law apply to only Muslims? The Danish journalists I take it, were not Muslims and so therefore not bound by Muslim laws. Does Islam follow the laws and rules of say, Catholicism? Just wondering. Now I can understand that it was not in the best of taste, nor what we would consider politically correct, but should those journalists be bound to religious laws that don't apply to them?

Thanks, Toulouse, for that link.

Maybe this attitude is uniquely Canadian. Maybe, just maybe, we actually do have an identity. It mirrors my feelings, exactly.

Why is it that some people feel that they have to prove a point no matter what the effect might be? Seems to me its just asking for conflict.

Agreed! I'd burn a building or two if it meant they'd take that stupid "Cathy" strip out of the local rag.

I was thinking about writing an update from "the Danish front", but then I came across this link, which really has most of the information I wanted to pass on to you all.

Best wishes,
