~ THE ALBERTA government: fine with censorship? It. Is. To. Laugh …. (


“How is it that the Catholic Church – everyone’s favourite scapegoat for intolerance, narrow-mindedness, and censorship – is defending the freedom to explore ideas, debate right and wrong, and search for truth, while the censors would shut down discussion in the name of human rights?”

~ Paul Schratz ~

~ EN FRANCAIS— Commentaire satirique: L’archevêque de Cantorbéry : Chamberlain en soutane. “Mon petit doigt me dit que l’Archevêque-primat d’Angleterre Rowan Williams poursuit deux lièvres à la fois. Le premier, le plus nourrissant et le plus plaisant à l’égo est sans doute le prix Nobel de la paix. Il serait injuste que l’on refuse le prix à un homme qui brandit aussi haut le rameau d’olivier face à la ceinture d’explosifs. Le second lièvre, celui que le Monseigneur est certain d’attraper, c’est le titre peu enviable mais combien mortifiant d’apôtre de la dhimmitude.” 18 juillet, par Helios d’Alexandrie …. (

~ NO DUH! AWARD, 2008— Christian doctrine is offensive to Muslims, the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, said. Almost 1400 years of history, conquest, and now fresh Jihad & terrorism in the name of Allah and in England, too and he’s got this finally figured out? Some times intellectuals play word-games, but this is big-boy time, and his every word counts, and can encourage or discourage a whole nation and beyond …. (marginalizedactiondinosaur)

Canada: The Joke’s On Us


~ DAVID WARREN— Redemptions: “The exchange of five living Hezb’allah terrorists, delivered to a hero’s welcome in Lebanon, for the corpses of two Israeli soldiers, was stupid. This is a point that has been made by other observers, but I think it worth emphasizing from the start” …. (davidwarrenonline)

~ “UM, YES. GOSH. I MUST HAVE BEEN BEGGING FOR IT.” — “Nearly two-thirds of Egyptian men admit to having sexually harassed women in the most populous Arab country, and a majority say women themselves are to blame for their maltreatment, a survey showed Thursday”; in other Islamic news, “Women Are Responsible for Rapes, Always!” – Ayesha Ahmed …. (

Islamic Heads-Up, Just FYI:
“A woman’s whole body, according to several hadiths, is awrah—the Arabic word for pudendum (the external genitals). It is natural that the sighting of awrah arouses men and creates an uncontrollable sexual urge. This urge is specially very acute in Muslim men due to their higher sexual potency. Allah gives all Muslim men a higher libido to enable them to enjoy their sharia permitted four wives….”

~ Ayesha Ahmed ~

Just wondering: do any other world religions out there– in the history of religions– consider a woman to be giant walking female genitalia? What perverted nonsense, and a twisted account of human nature: even men are reduced to giant superhuman genitalia. This is Hustler mag-style wishful thinking and not divinely-revealed wisdom. Discuss.

~ COREN ON THE KHADR SHOW: “I have to be blunt. I’m disappointed. Perhaps the sequel will be superior and I suppose we have to be generous to a fairly inexperienced director and cast, but I thought the Omar Khadr video would be better than it turned out to be. A little like the latter Star Wars — unfulfilled promise.” …. (scaramouche)

~ UNDERSTANDING Canada’s deportation system …. (dustmybroom)

~ SURRENDER, USA? “It seems the State Department is selling calenders that feature “the mosques of America.” If the State Department sold a calender of the “churches of America” how fast do you think the ACLU would be up in their grill about the mythical separation clause? Faster than the French surrendering is my guess” …. (stoptheaclu, A2K)

~ DURBAN II: anti-Western and anti-Semitic feelings à la carte …. (blogfreeworld)

~ CANUCKI PAPER shills for Jew-killer: The Globe and Mail’s Orly Halpern assays some ghastly puffery about a despicable murderer, newly freed and acclaimed by death-cultists in Lebanon and elsewhere. (The deal that sprung him saw Israel transforming itself into the national equivalent of Charlie Brown on Halloween …. (scaramouche)

~ BIG-BOY TIME IN REALITY LAND? No matter: “Mad, bad, and dangerous: The West has made one more pathetic attempt to bribe, er, reach out to the mullahs before they go ahead and nuke the Jews, but the stars of that Emmy nominated show Mahdi Men have yet to respond” …. (scaramouche)

~ WORKING ON that parallel state: “USA: Muslims intimidating police to create special treatment for themselves?” …. (blogfreeworld)

~ TODDLER-KILLER RELEASED— A moment of moral clarity: Kuntar As ‘Hero’– “Any civilized court of law would hold the attackers responsible for the toddler’s death, too. Judging by the euphoria in Lebanon and in the Palestinian territories this week, by the terrorists’ barbaric, topsy-turvy immoral logic, the additional carnage enhances Kuntar’s heroic status”; Freed murderer now a target, Israel warns ….

~ SUPREME DREAMS: The Custodian of the Two Holy Shmoly Mosques invited some non-believers to Madrid to participate in some interfaith charades, er, dialogue. (For obvious reasons, holding it in Saudi Arabia wasn’t an option). All went well with the schmoozing until the end, when a final communiqué revealed the organizers’ true colours. (I believe they were green, the colour of Muslim supremacism) …. (scaramouche)
