'Christmas is Evil': Muslim Group Launches Poster Campaign Against Festive Period [UK]
The Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 12/23/10

Posted on 12/23/2010 9:36:31 PM PST by marshmallow

Fanatics from a banned Islamic hate group have launched a nationwide poster campaign denouncing Christmas as evil.

Organisers plan to put up thousands of placards around the UK claiming the season of goodwill is responsible for rape, teenage pregnancies, abortion, promiscuity, crime and paedophilia.

They hope the campaign will help 'destroy Christmas' in this country and lead to Britons converting to Islam instead.

Labour MP and anti racist campaigner Jim Fitzpatrick branded the posters 'extremely offensive' and demanded they were immediately ripped down.

The placards, which have already appeared in parts of London, feature an apparently festive scene with an image of the Star of Bethlehem over a Christmas tree.

But under a banner announcing 'the evils of Christmas' it features a message mocking the song the 12 Days of Christmas.

It reads: 'On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me an STD (sexually transmitted disease).

'On the second day debt, on the third rape, the fourth teenage pregnancies and then there was abortion.'

According to the posters, Christmas is also to responsible for paganism, domestic violence, homelessness, vandalism, alcohol and drugs.

Another offence of Christmas, it proclaims, is 'claiming God has a son'.

The muslims left out homosexuality as one of the “evils” - for isn’t Christmas all about goodwill to men?

A mosque near Ground Zero? We’ll THINK about it when the area around the kaaba looks more like this.

What dorks! If they want to complain about promiscuity and break down of social mores, it’s secular leftism that is responsible, not Christmas or Christianity.

The funny thing is, the secular leftists have not figured out that the Muslims consider them and Christians as one and the same: infidels.

They have a point.

And it is a point the West does not want to face.

We have, in many ways, culturally and socially failed.

What is normative in our Western culture is morally and ethically repugnant.

I dont think Islam is the answer, but I do think that they have a point.

These people really take themselves out with this sort of junk.

They aren’t going to win any hearts or minds this way, actually, they will probably drive people TOWARDS Christ.

I sincerely believe that the evils they list are far more prevalent in their culture than in ours.

Islam is a religion (?) of low expectations. If you destroy that rock they will pick another one. The rock is not the problem, it never hurt anyone. The people are the problem. It's not the rock that tells muslims to go out and kill infidels, it's mullahs.

Only one thing to do: in the wee hours of the night, splatter the offending poster with pig blood.

Actually, the rock is extremely holy to them. that meteor is what they believe was sent down to heaven after adam and was where Abraham rested adn where Mo went to see heaven. When that rock was taken by the Qarmatians (Zoroastrians rebelling against islam), it ushered in a drawback to islamic expansion. No, destroying MEcca and Medina is the only way (incidently did you know that Medina was a Jewish city until Islam? and that was where the Jews protected Mo, mistakenly believing that he was a monotheist come to bring others to Jewish beliefs — they were wrong and mo came back to slaughter them0

Do ya think someone will put up posters stating “On the first day of Ramadan, my true love gave to me, my first burkha.” Or perhaps, “on the Second day of Ramadan, my true love gave to me, the head of an infidel?” Or maybe, “in the third day of Ramadan, my true love gave to me, 3000 dead in America.” A$$wipes.

They hope the campaign will help 'destroy Christmas' in this country and lead to Britons converting to Islam instead.

Funny, thought that had mostly happened already.

I dont know, but I do know when a culture does not tolerate perversion of its stated rules it is forced underground and is less prevelent.

This is evidently a banned fanatical group to begin with.

Muslims in Arabia are very friendly about wishing Americans Merry Christmas.. and likewise Americans wish them Happy Ramadan or Happy Eid.

Crackpots scare everyone.

Merry Christmas to you.

The best information that I have on the rock comes from two legends. One, that it was, as you said, part of an alter built by Abraham in thanks for the water provided to Hagar and Ishmael and an earlier legend that after Adam and Eve were forgiven and reunited, they built an altar.

Muslims don’t actually worship the rock.. Its more of a touchstone.

It may have been a meteor.. many ancient bedouin tribes carried small meteors around in boxes on litters.

Both legends are ancient.. much like the tomb of grandmother Eve in Jeddah.

There were, as you said, Jewish tribes in Medina as well as pagan tribes and Nestorian Christians.. but I see no value in destroying Mecca or Medina.

They do consider the rock to be holy -- the rock is the focal point of the processions around Mecca and Mecca is the point to which Moslems pray. When they process around the Ka'aba 7 times, they point at the rock when they pass and cry out.

They don't actually worship it, you are correct, but that and Mecca is the focal point of this evil religion. Destroy them and you cut out the heart of the beast

Medina was more than a place which had Jewish Tribes, this city was founded by Jews and was primarily Jewish until Mohound slaughtered them

The value fo destroying Mecca and Medina is the same value as destroying the heart of the beast. Islam (aka Satanism) must be destroyed

Moslems in Saudi Arabia don't allow people to bring in Bibles or wear Crosses (even small ones) -- to convert from Islam to Christianity in any of the ARab states is to get the death penalty. In Saudi Arabia there are no Churches permitted

islam was a political organization set up by Mohammed to unite the Arab tribes so that he could conquer places

Mohammed was a brigand, a thief who slaughtered traders and fought even during acknowledged pagan Arab peace days. Mohound was a person who first took the support of the Jews, pretending to espouse their religion and then wrote in the Koran that Jews are worse than pigs.

Mohound was the person who reduced women to being just sex slaves of men -- such that even in Islamic heaven, Moslem women can only watch while their men deflower 72 virgins and 18 young boys again and again

Islam is not a religion, but a political force. It woudl be good to destroy it once and for all == nuke mecca and medina at the very next terrorist attack on the west
