    American Council for Kosovo ^ | 12/12/06 | Serb29
    Associated Press Balkan expert Tim Judah stated: "There is a real potential for renewed violence in Kosovo. If there is a delay or if the resolution is unclear, (Kosovo) Albanian hard-liners will start to lose patience." Since the United Nations and NATO began the international administration of Kosovo in 1999, similar Muslim Albanian violence has resulted in the displacement of hundreds of thousands of non-Albanians, the destruction and desecration of hundreds of Serbian Orthodox churches and the deaths of thousands of non-Albanians. columnist Christopher Deliso also reported on the rise of jihad terrorism in the Serbian province and the...

    Muslim protesters Wednesday disrupted a speech by British Home Secretary John Reid as he urged Muslim parents to monitor their children for signs of "radicalisation." The event, in a community centre in east London, degenerated into chaos when several protesters were led from the room, describing Reid as an "enemy of Islam." The home secretary, who has a reputation for toughness, had come to the centre in Leytonstone, east London, to urge Muslim parents to watch out for "tell-tale signs of brainwashing" in their children as part of the global fight against terrorism. One of the protesters was seen clutching...

    ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Security guards shot dead two men, police used teargas on students in Islamabad's diplomatic enclave and protesters attacked Western businesses on Tuesday in Pakistan's most violent reaction yet to cartoons of the Prophet. In Iran, scores of demonstrators hurled petrol bombs at the British embassy in renewed protests against the cartoons and Western opposition to Tehran's nuclear ambitions. The dispute should not be allowed to divide Europe and the Muslim world, the European Union's foreign policy chief Javier Solana said in Cairo. He is touring Muslim states to try to calm anger over the cartoons, published by...

    A decent amount of your co-religionists simply continue to go about their day, and couldn’t care less about this ongoing, overplayed, ridiculous cartoon ‘controversy.’ They discuss issues, not set them on fire. Then there’s you. Your wild eyed, off the hook behavior is unacceptable, and reeks of your desire to impose your ‘will’. You are making complete asses of yourselves all over the world. A world that is finally watching. All of these riots, arsons, and deaths….and over what? Cartoons of your founder, Muhammad. According to you, Islam prohibits the depiction of all prophets. However, from what has been written,...

    Extra! Extra! Read all about it! That street corner cry of yesteryear is resonating at some European publications that have enjoyed a boom in sales and Web traffic after printing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad that have stoked outrage across the Islamic world. Denmark's biggest-circulation broadsheet, Jyllands-Posten, triggered the controversy in September by publishing 12 cartoons of the prophet, including one showing his turban as a bomb. Its weekday circulation of about 154,000 hasn't moved much. But for newspapers in France and Norway that reprinted the drawings with much international ado, sometimes in defense of free speech, the caricatures have...
  • Cartoons draw a sinister silence (U.K. politics & muslim outrage)

    AFTER being acquitted of incitement to racial hatred last week, Nick Griffin proclaimed his trial to have been the best publicity for his far-right British National Party. He was wrong. A stronger advert was the protest outside the Danish embassy in London against a newspaper that ran cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. Their chant – “UK you will pay, 7/7 is on its way” – made front-page news. Anyone wishing to portray Islam as a fundamentalist religion that threatens British culture would have been delighted. But what would have pleased Griffin most was the silence from mainstream British political parties....

    As I read newspaper accounts and watch news footage on the tube of rioting (protesting) Muslims in Europe and the Middle East, I'm reminded of two things: First, I'm reminded why the First Amendment of the US Constitution is so precious and necessary for our liberty; and second, in spite of President Bush's dream of bringing democracy to the Islamic world, it ain't going to happen, folks. They live in the 12th Century. And if someone came to England in the 12th Century talking about democratic elections, his life expectancy from that moment on would be about 15 seconds. Just...
  • Danish Cartoons, Double Standards and False Rhetoric of Islam and its Public Defenders

    The BBC, CBC, and NPR permit furious Muslim spokespeople and the Western Left to make apologies for Muslim boycotts and riots in reaction to Danish political cartoons; thus framing the dialectic as one between provocateur and provoked. There are two fallacies here- one of false dualism, and one of double standard. Danish and French use of speech is held to a higher standard of responsibility than what Saudi Arabia and Egypt permit Imams to teach every day in their countries- anti-Jewish hate for example. This unwillingness to address speech with speech extends beyond boycotts and riots of course- as the...
