“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.” — Winston Churchill (The River War, 1899)

“Believers are like a structure supporting each other”2Sahih Muslim 2585

Depending on your disposition, searching google for “islam is not the problem” will give you either a bias confirming orgasm – or fill you with nausea and despair for our species. The oozing apologia makes everything barfed out by the Vatican about xtianity seem measured, well reasoned and restrained. (more…)

I have previously written of Taqwacore in a blog post that has vapourised. I also briefly mention it here. Primarily Pakistan based, but it has spread elsewhere, as have the various bastard strains of metal. Music is a revolutionary force – you can have all the military interventions you want, but they will never seed social change like angry young folks with guitars. Deny it all you want, but the Sex Pistols did change the world.

Afghanistan has a little known rock subculture too. While not Taqwacore per se, Kabul Dreams echo the sentiments. Three Afghani kids from three separate tribes that spend most of their time butchering each other. There is hope. They have released an album.

Dawkins no doubt knew he was dealing with maniacs, but I suspect he grossly underestimated the extent of the derangement he was dealing with. There was no point Dick – we’re in Jyllands-Posten territory here. You cannot negotiate with terrorists.

Depressingly, the outrage at Dawkins Muslima riposte was not confined to the Watsonista hordes. A non-exhaustive list of non-fembots that lined up to take pot-shots at Dawkins for daring to show disrespect to the holy yoni included –

The Middle East exists for a reason. To remind pudgy, malcontented white folks to be grateful for what precious little life has dealt them and to consider themselves lucky they weren’t born there.

Aside from a few tourist oases for kebab lovers, the place is basically a shithole, and there is a perverse logic that the religions of dust were all born there. Ever heard of a self-flagellating monotheism from a tropical island? No, didn’t think so.

It is the pure serendipity of the cosmic lottery that the Middle East has somehow ended up with the bulk of the planet’s petroleum resources1, and with this lever, they have succeeded in making the whole planet miserable for the best part of a century. Spare a thought for the much maligned western diplomat – (more…)
