Islamic Censorship by Default
You Call this "Victory"?
All Things Beautiful: The Manifesto Against The New Islamic ...There is a manifesto going around stating that the signatories are against Islamic Totalitarianism.
MANIFESTO: Together facing the new totalitarianism
After having overcome fascism, Nazism, and Stalinism, the world now faces a new totalitarian global threat: Islamism.
We, writers, journalists, intellectuals, call for resistance to religious totalitarianism and for the promotion of freedom, equal opportunity and secular values for all.
The recent events, which occurred after the publication of drawings of Muhammed in European newspapers, have revealed the necessity of the struggle for these universal values. This struggle will not be won by arms, but in the ideological field. It is not a clash of civilisations nor an antagonism of West and East that we are witnessing, but a global struggle that confronts democrats and theocrats.
Like all totalitarianisms, Islamism is nurtured by fears and frustrations. The hate preachers bet on these feelings in order to form battalions destined to impose a liberticidal and unegalitarian world. But we clearly and firmly state: nothing, not even despair, justifies the choice of obscurantism, totalitarianism and hatred. Islamism is a reactionary ideology which kills equality, freedom and secularism wherever it is present. Its success can only lead to a world of domination: man's domination of woman, the Islamists' domination of all the others. To counter this, we must assure universal rights to oppressed or discriminated people.
We reject cultural relativism, which consists in accepting that men and women of Muslim culture should be deprived of the right to equality, freedom and secular values in the name of respect for cultures and traditions. We refuse to renounce our critical spirit out of fear of being accused of "Islamophobia", an unfortunate concept which confuses criticism of Islam as a religion with stigmatisation of its believers.
We plead for the universality of freedom of expression, so that a critical spirit may be exercised on all continents, against all abuses and all dogmas.
We appeal to democrats and free spirits of all countries that our century should be one of Enlightenment, not of obscurantism.

The broad mass of the nation ... will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one. Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf (1925)
By Ahmed Elzobier
September 12, 2006 Hitler words echoed 64 years later in one of the most unlikely places Sudan one of Africa most troubled countries. The NIF cell in the army executed a successful military coup on 30 June 1989. New chapter in the country history have began and in the first pages the new regime started writing series of lies as prelude for the biggest lie; summarized by Al Turbai the NIF Ideologue when he said I told him (i.e.Omer Al Bashier) to go to the Palace and I will go to the prison. Deception and trickery considered necessary in this takeover from a legitimate elected democratic government in Sudan. The conspirators knowing their limited popularity in the country they successfully cheated their way into power without resistance.
Islamic Totalitarianism: Our Carry-On Luggage Is Not the Real Problem
by Debi Ghate (August 11, 2006)
If termites are weakening a home's foundation, what do we do? We call the exterminator and eliminate the problem. If armed robbers are at our doors trying to break their way in, what do we do? We defend ourselves to the best of our abilities until the authorities arrive to eliminate the threat.
If Islamic totalitarians come close to murdering hundreds of people by mixing common household materials to blow up airplanes, what do we do? Apparently, we stop carrying liquids and gels in our carry-on luggage.
What should we do? We should insist that our government eliminate the real source of the problem decisively and quickly. Islamic totalitarian groups such as Hezbollah and Al Qaeda, and the countries supporting them such as Iran and Syria, are hell-bent on attacking Americans. They will not stop unless we make it impossible for them to function or regroup. Their infrastructure and support networks have to be permanently disabled as quickly as possible in whatever way our military recommends. A drawn-out, five-year "War on Terror"
where we help build roads, plants and hospitals in the Middle East only strengthens the resolve of our enemies.
And they'll keep trying to blow up planes in the meantime.
