condemning the condemnation[ists]…

Posted by abu ameerah on Saturday, February 23, 2008

Unfortunately there are those within the Ummah today who feel it is their job – nay – it is their calling to blame Muslims for just about everything in the world. I like to refer to them as the “blame-Muslims-first” crowd. Now, I must admit, I like blaming Muslims for just about everything as much as the next guy… but … when these folks make it a habit of running with rumors and blindly accepting whatever a biased (western) media has to say (on every issue possible concerning Izzlam/Mozzlems/the Middle East/A-rabs/whatever) — I find myself getting more than a little irritated.
I know what you’re thinking … okayuhhh … actually I don’t know what you’re thinking. However, let us assume (for arguments sake) that – LIKE ME – you enjoy blaming Muslims for a lot of things. Fun isn’t it? Yeah, I know. I particularly enjoy making fun of nationalistic Muslim immigrants who seem to bring all of their back-home garbage to the US. Idiots – pure and simple.

I also enjoy mocking any kind of nationalist Muslim. I essentially look at it this way … I don’t take pride in my heritage/culture and neither should you. I don’t give a damn about what “your people” did many moons ago … or what leaders your nation(s) gave rise to … or in what wars the sons of your nation died. I simply don’t care. I would rather organize my sock drawer, listen to endless hours of bluegrass, or watch reruns of the Britney Spears/Kevin Federfag reality show that aired some time ago, than listen to one minute of such crap. So … it should be clear to the reader … that I don’t hold back on Muslims. When we screw up — and we often do — I won’t hesitate to admit it. I simply choose to do so by putting things into context (something that many of us have completely forgotten about) and to consider the source where I am getting my information from.

Let us look at one such case where some Muslims have chosen to run with media garbage propaganda and consequently look kinda silly for doing it. Does anyone remember the story sensationalist media propaganda about the retarded Iraqi female bombers?

This was a joke from the beginning and had a FOX Noise quality stench about it. It reminded me somewhat of that rumor – that some in the media were pointing to as fact – of female terrorists who were stuffing (either by manual insertion or through surgical implantation) explosives inside of their wombs or genital cavities (poon in scientific terms) so as not to be detected by security personnel at airports. As the story rumor went, these evil Mozzzlem female terrorists were supposed to detonate their poontastic explosives aboard commercial aircraft thus snuffing out the lives of beautiful white people and their little white babies. Oh the horror! Well it turned about to be nothing but crap … and like much of the crap that comes out of the bowels of media in this country the rumor was eventually flushed away and only managed to come back as diarrhea on FOX Noise a few more times.

Anyway here is how the retarded Iraqi female bomber rumor was perceived by some Muslims

and here is something that is likely much closer to the truth

In addition to having little faith in the media…reactions like this are why I really don’t trust…
ikhwanees,
(supposedly) reformed madkhalees,
and belligerent cabbies…

a question…

Posted by abu ameerah on Wednesday, September 12, 2007

Why is it the case that if Muslims (or anyone from the Middle East) are involved in a bombing/attack of some sort…the media rushes to the conclusion that such an attack is a nefarious terrorist plot…however…when it happens in Mexico it is merely an act of “sabotage”???

Indecision 2008…Steven Colbert interviews Ron Paul

Posted by abu ameerah on Sunday, July 8, 2007

Rep. Ron Paul is an interesting figure in American politics. He is a Republican, yet he isn’t the typical kind of Republican that one might expect to come out of the GOP. Here are a few points about Ron Paul:

  • He isn’t an Iraq War supporter…
  • He is fiscally conservative…
  • Doesn’t support gun control…
  • He wants to do away with a number of Federal agencies…
  • He wants America to return to the Gold-Standard…
  • Refers to himself as a Constitutionalist…
  • He’s from Texas…
  • Looks like my Drivers-Ed instructor in high school…
  • He isn’t Mexican…
  • I’m pretty sure he isn’t Vietnamese…
  • He might be Pakistani though…
  • Definately a wahabi…

Demonizing Muslims is fun…really…it is!

Posted by abu ameerah on Sunday, July 1, 2007

Faux News (FOX) up to it’s old tabloid new tricks again. You silly guys! When are you going to learn that you could just kill every Muslim — one military invasion at a time — that’s all? What are us Mozzzlems going to do against your sophisticated military hardware? All we have are camels and cous-cous, right?! How could the Mozzzlems fund a sustained military campaign? The oil is gonna run out, eventually, ain’t it? C’mon FAUX News…get with the program.

Anway, here is a rather tasty article that I came across…

“In the third Hannity & Colmes segment Friday night (6/29/07) devoted to the London car bomb, the sole guest was Brigitte Gabriel, aka “The Shrieking Muslim Hater.” Whatever the question, Gabriel answers it by shrieking about how horrible and how dangerous Muslims are. Naturally, she’s a favorite of Sean Hannity. With video.

The chyron on the screen read, “Are Muslim extremists in London to blame for this plot?” One wonders why FOX News bothered to put it in the form of a question. With a single guest like Gabriel, there’s only one answer. And, just in case the audience doubted her opinion, the chyron under her name said, “Terrorism Expert.” However, the audience never found out what kind of credentials she had.”

After you read through the article in the link above. Why not check out these peaceful Zionists (that Brigitte Gabriel so fondly speaks of) in action:

Actually, the Palestinian girl is probably a terrorist. Well, at least she looks kinda mean.   So she should feel greatful that she didn’t catch a sniper round to the head.

Israeli leader guilty in sex case

June 29, 2007

ISRAELI President Moshe Katsav pleaded guilty yesterday to committing sexual crimes against female employees in a plea bargain that will keep him out of jail. Under the deal, Israel’s Attorney-General Menachem Mazuz retreated from his stated intention to charge Katsav with rape but said the President, whose term expires next month, would resign and that “shame will accompany him forever”.

Do polls always lie?

Posted by abu ameerah on Sunday, May 20, 2007

 
 
 
 



Do you think past U.S. foreign policy was a reason for the 9/11 attacks?

YES

63%

31335 votes

 

NO

37%

18236 votes

Total: 49571 votes (CNN QuickVote)

Martin: Ron Paul’s 9/11 explanation deserves to be debated

I am no expert on polling data/statistics, however, I believe that a majority of Americans have become sick of U.S. foreign policy and believe that it has become a negative force on the world stage. The recent CNN Quick Vote (above) is illustrative, I think, of this reality. US foreign policy has, over the last few years in particular, become dominated by a small cadre of groups on the right with nothing other than war on thier collective minds. They have no concern over how wreckless or brazen their policies may be seen on the domestic front or world stage for that matter. Call them what you want: NeoCons, Chicken-Hawks, Right-wing extremists, etc. etc.

These folks care nothing for the loss of life in manufactured wars if it means political gains at home. Here are just some the aims/goals of these people:

1. Complete blind support for the state of Israel…

2. Launching wreckless wars using made-up (“faulty”) intelligence when making the case for war…

3. Violating Civil Liberties…

4. Supporting dictatorships and secular-extremists in the Middle East…

5. Framing the current “War on Terror” as a conflict greater than WWII and the Cold War…

the list goes on and on…and I will probably be updating it every so often…

uh…whatever…

Posted by abu ameerah on Thursday, May 3, 2007

Two things are irritating me at this very moment:

1) Media Whores — I will be expanding upon this in a later post.  Actually, the term is rather self-explanatory however I will simply do my best to elaborate. Anyway, I hate mediawhores!

2) Premature Balding — Why am I losing my hair? Is this some kind of cruel joke? Is it payback for all of the bald jokes that I have done over the years? WHAT?
