“Once Again We See Islam Self-Detonate…”
Nobody says it better, or more frankly than Pat Condell.
More from Roger Kimball at PJM...
It’s often observed that Islam is an iconoclastic religion: they don’t like images of many things, especially of the prophet-in-chief, Ab? al-Q?sim Mu?ammad ibn ?Abd All?h ibn ?Abd al-Mu??alib ibn H?shim, i.e., Muhammad. We know this from, Oh, many sources, most recently because when some Danish cartoonists portrayed Muhammad satirically, partisans of the religion of peace embarked on one of their periodic orgies of destruction, mayhem, and murder. That little vacation from reality left about 200 people dead, but, hey, fun is fun. Those cartoons have had a long shelf life. Just a few days ago, France closed its schools and embassies in 20 countries after a French magazine published some cartoons of Muhammad. Weird, eh? A French magazine published a satirical cartoon of a medieval desert nomad and his 21st century followers rampage. Even more noteworthy, France closes French institutions in 20 countries. Had it been up to me, I would have closed the 20 countries, or withdrawn from them entirely. Want civilization? Then get civilized. Otherwise, back to your camels, tents, and sand.
But I digress. The real purpose of this advisory was to express the hope that Barack Obama will make time for Pat Condell’s latest contribution to political sanity and the virtue of free speech, “A Word to Rioting Muslims,” which my friend Andrew Bostom just sent me. I don’t think we can expect Obama to sit through 2016, Dinesh D’Souza’s revelatory look at what the president has in store for you and me should he get reelected, or even The Hope and the Change, Stephen K. Bannon’s riveting group portrait of 40 Democrats and Independents who, having been suckered into voting for the messiah in 2008, have seen the scales fall from their eyes and are plumping for the opposition this time around. It’s only 5 minutes long, Barack: give peace a chance.
The U.N.General Assembly is meeting this week, and Egypt's new Muslim Brotherhood president, along with other Muslim leaders, to pass a worldwide U.N. anti-blasphemy law, in spite of our own priceless Second Amendment. And Obama doesn't seem to have too much of a problem with that.
I watched "2016" over the weekend [edited*]. It was quite striking to really understand the simplicity of Obama's real agenda. As a side note, I was not only stunned to see Obama's brother George was so much wiser than I had anticipated, and is a total opposite of Barry. Makes me wonder if George would make a far better American than Barry, if given the chance.
