Muslims to West: Allahu Akbar!

From CNN.com.

A Danish newspaper recently published some cartoon caricatures of Mohammad, the prophet of the Muslim mental virus faith. One of those cartoons shows the prophet wearing a Turban that resembles a bomb. The cartoons portray an extremist image of the Mohammad and of Islam.

So what does the global Muslim community do in response? Act in violent and extremist ways, that's what! I'm all for free speech of course, and I'm all for free protest too. But Muslims are causing property damage to Danish embassies in Indonesia and other regions, all the while shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is the greatest). I'm not in favor of property damage, obviously. Also, I am not in favor of anyone reacting violently to an insulting caricature of a person who isn't even alive. But since in Islam, all pictures and drawings of Mohammad are considered immoral, I doubt they would be much happier even if the caricature was all flowery and complimentary.

Independent action and self-responsibility is a foreign concept to most Muslims (as well as most pro-afterlifers in general), and it's evident in how they praise God for every single causal act that happens in their lives. Newborn baby? Allahu Akbar! Death in the family? Allahu Akbar! Win the lottery? Allahu Akbar! A Yankee bomb falls on your house? Allahu Akbar! Got cancer? Allahu Akbar, dammit!

The Danish Prime Minister's reality check has gone unheeded by the infuriated Muslim protestors. The Danish Prime Minster said:

"A Danish government can never apologize on behalf of a free and independent newspaper. This is basically a dispute between some Muslims and a newspaper."


His legitimate disclaimer went unheeded because Middle-Eastern Muslims don't typically understand that a newspaper in the West can have an unrestricted and independent "mouth" that the Government cannot or will not control. The Muslims think that all of Denmark, indeed all of the Western World, is responsible for this offensive cartoon. Flag burning has not been restricted to the Danish variety over this issue. Why don't they just burn the UN flag? I think it would be more appropriate, since the UN flag has a picture of the entire planet on it.

I am also curious as to why Muslims think that their all powerful and all merciful Allah needs the help of their (by comparison) puny little selves to defend and protect Him? For God to even get offended is to imply that a human can force reactions out of Him, which would imply that humans can have power over Him, which would make the all-powerful Allah not so all-powerful, which would of course make Him not God.

While the whole Western World isn't responsible for the cartoon, a lot of Westerners definitely think of devout Muslims in the same way the cartoons portray. So the Muslim community is in a sense lashing out over their anger of how the West views them. At any rate, the Muslims are projecting. They want to blame the West for this offense, but in reality the only thing responsible for this portrayal of Mohammad is the institution of Islam itself! It is the mental virus faith of Islam that demands certain behaviors of its adherents. These Islamic behaviors leave a sour taste in the mouths of those who witness them, and in response, some newspapers speak their mind about what they see in the form of an offensive cartoon.

Who is responsible for this whole outrage? Nobody, unless you count Mohammad. The proper question is: What is responsible for this whole outrage? The answer is Islam. The answer is afterlife-belief, and it's dehumanizing, alienating, and demoralizing attributes. Think about it. The Muslims aren't even defending themselves, but their faith and their prophet. They are offended not because they were the target of an insult, but because their institution of Islamic faith was insulted. It is the Islam that the West is poking fun at, not the Middle-Easterners. And it is the afterlife-belief, in this case the Islamic faith, that is the problem.

I think that the French Foreign Minister, Philippe Douste-Blazy, sums it up terrifically when he says:

"I am totally shocked and find it unacceptable that -- because there have been caricatures in the West -- extremists can burn flags or take fundamentalist or extremist positions which would prove the cartoonists right."


Yes, Monsieur Douste-Blazy, the cartoonists are right.

Allahu Akbar!

This is a great point!

ON a MySpace.com group forum to which I belong, they are discussing this concept. This quote can be found there:

"Because Muslims believe that any visual depiction of Mohammad is blasphemous and may lead to idolotry[sic], they call for the death of anyone or any nation that merely creates a cartoon inteneded to be Mohammad..."

Now, I'm still plishing up my understanding of Islam, but uh...I thought they're whole thing was teh importance of ALLAH. As in, no man can compare, and emphasis on any human is idolatrous. They always emphasize that they do not worship Mohammed. But if this claim 9that no representation of the "prophet" is true, then there's a contradiction going on here.

I'll have to ask my Muslim homeboy.

Then again, it sounds as if the cartoon draws a parallel between Islam and violence/terrorism.

Imagine that.

But the point is, if this is the case, then it's not a Mohammed issue, it's a faith issue.

If they're offended, maybe they should edit out all of the violence and make a Qu'ran Cliff Notes version.

But in the meantime, all these threats of violence are just serving as an Islam for Dummies of sorts. And proving the cartoonist(s) correct.

Hmm. I think that the Islamist religious leaders should blind themselves so that they will never have to gaze upon such blasphemy again. Think that suggestion would go over well? That would at least prove that they are sincere in their outrage, and not just using this as an excuse to raise the rabble and riot.

Very true. The fact is that if the true God has a bone to pick, He doesn't delegate it out - He takes care of it himself. The Allah of Islam is not God, he's Mohammed behind a curtain, still trying to lord it over the other tribes of the world.

Loved this post. Very funny and true at the same time.

"Muslim mental virus faith"
yes thanks for that snide small minded comments like those are the reason why muslims get angry, why shouldent they after all if u suggestivly call them barbarians and sheep.




"Independent action and self-responsibility is a foreign concept to most Muslims (as well as most pro-afterlifers in general), and it's evident in how they praise God for every single causal act that happens in their lives. Newborn baby? Allahu Akbar! Death in the family? Allahu Akbar! Win the lottery? Allahu Akbar! A Yankee bomb falls on your house? Allahu Akbar! Got cancer? Allahu Akbar, dammit!" thats their beliefs, yes they are happy and thank god for every thing that god has provided to them how hard is that for you to understand ? even churstians say "oh thank god" "praise the lord" and so on so what if the muslims say thak god in their own language or should they say it in english so you are less biast ?

"But since in Islam, all pictures and drawings of Mohammad are considered immoral, I doubt they would be much happier even if the caricature was all flowery and complimentary"
yes that is correct they would still consider this very offensive art of a living being in any from is a sin to them period no matter the intentions.

"So what does the global Muslim community do in response? Act in violent and extremist ways, that's what! I'm all for free speech of course, and I'm all for free protest too. But Muslims are causing property damage to Danish embassies in Indonesia and other regions"

yes it is very sad to see this being a muslim my self i dont like to see my people acting violently and ruining their own reputaions so people like your self can play the violence card.

"His legitimate disclaimer went unheeded because Middle-Eastern Muslims don't typically understand that a newspaper in the West can have an unrestricted and independent "mouth" that the Government cannot or will not control"

sorry us barbarians have never herd of this "news paper" and "free speech" you speak of. plz get out more often and i just dont mean in your back yard.you are wrong muslims do know that the newspaper is privatly owned ect. but when something of such scale happens its time for the goverment to take over savy ?

"The Muslims think that all of Denmark, indeed all of the Western World, is responsible for this offensive cartoon. Flag burning has not been restricted to the Danish variety over this issue. Why don't they just burn the UN flag? I think it would be more appropriate, since the UN flag has a picture of the entire planet on it."
how about the usa flag will it do ?, since they have acted so hipocritically and childlike in their entire campain on the "war on terror !!!11" after all they did place the taliban in afganistan and have had dealings with saddam hussain in iraq. also we all know what the true purpose of the war on terror is its OILthe 9-11 was just a scrape-goat. on that comment you may think "what an idiot there is no/little oil in afganistan that place is a shambal" well actually afganistan has a lot of stratigic value as it is next to china the evil commys according to usa.look at korea they have nukes too and it has just faded out of the news.

"I am also curious as to why Muslims think that their all powerful and all merciful Allah needs the help of their (by comparison) puny little selves to defend and protect Him?

negitive this is not about god it is about the danish newspaper making cartoons about a religous figure. also you need to have a solid fact not a series of conclusions it reminds me of that story about a guy who bought a chicken egg and though of creating an entire farm from one egg.

"While the whole Western World isn't responsible for the cartoon, a lot of Westerners definitely think of devout Muslims in the same way the cartoons portray.

your point being ? try to tell us of the islamic pratices that disgust you so much ? do you mean the Shia practice of Maatam ? thats not a part of islam actually its a part that muslims added afterwards and is ONLY practiced by shias, sunni muslims find it disgusting. also please note what muslims do to them selves is none of your buissness. i would elaborate but since you have failed to do so your self i will not either. i will however mention the suicidal bombers,it is just a tactic thats all since they are convinced that there is an afterlife they think "why not die for a cause?" after all where this happens most is Palastine where the Jews have put up ILLEGAL settlments also the jewsih army is definitly suppiled by a forigen country there is no way on earth that they can keep such a high tech army on their own money.

WRONG AGAIN, the cause is big mouthed europians who just dont know when to shut the eff up. and no islam is not the reason behind this its all political agenda of the western counrties ultimatly the power house being the USA. who have pressured bullied manipulated their way into everything they have bases every point of the globe the entire globe is under their thumb dont you see that ? japan, Arabia , pakistan , iraq , afganistan and countless others. its just a matter of time now soon the entire world will be run an owned by them. is that a good thing ? some may think yes but i say no. becuase absolute power is dangerous. If you know anything about economics you can understand what im saying. also lets look at saddam hussain hes still alive im quite shure he will not be killed off. USA will keep him alive declared or undeclared so they can place him back into power in an extream case for example all out civil war in iraq.

" They are offended not because they were the target of an insult, but because their institution of Islamic faith was insulted. It is the Islam that the West is poking fun at, not the Middle-Easterners. And it is the afterlife-belief, in this case the Islamic faith, that is the problem."

your conclusion is VERY VERY WEAK. how on earth did you come up with that ?
muslims angry becuase weast is poking fun at islam = their is something wrong with their religeon. how on earth has this got ANYTHING to do with afterlife ????????? this is a LAUGHABLE comment you just made really it is.



"I think that the French Foreign Minister, Philippe Douste-Blazy, sums it up terrifically when he says:

extreamist positions ? you mean the church burning and the embassy burning ? yes that is WRONG of course it is and im not saying to make any of you happy. i can openly admit it is wrong for any people to commit vilent act. how ever to draw a genral concusion that all muslims are terrorists ? hrrmmm no you cant judge 1 billion people over a few 100 ? who took part in the burning. also plz take your head out of the sand for a moment and think of the political aspects. lets say a diplomatic party want to run for elections what can they do to get people to vote for them ? I KNOW !! play on their religeon ! its a trump card really they could have possibly took the cartoons as a reason and saw an opertunity to play on the sentiments of the people. the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words" is not good enough because it never tells you the origin or the back ground only whats on the surface. Who knows who organised all this perhaps the terroist organistions.

let me tell you all something, its the very attitude the westernes give the muslims that frusterated them so much look at the situation in iraq afganistan now iran and guantanamo bay,abd usa manipulating muslims countries (osama and saddam) for a moment look at you own actions then say something the reactions of the muslims is JUSTIFIED. its not some stupid reasoning about the after life no matter how much this person is trying to push that concept. as far as the cartoons go, they were small minded stupidity in the highest level i hope the cartoonist is satisfied for stirring up the emotions of 1 billion people she/he'll never get that much attention again in his/her life.

thanks for reading. god bless you
