Rats in the Ranks

Jeez... what does a Dutch prophet have to do to convince those in the meeja most receptive to his 'Muslims under the mattress' message? You know, the ones who paid their pretty penny, battled their way to the remote south-western Sydney suburb of Liverpool (albeit with the assistance of a Gregory's), drank deeply of his STOP ISLAM BEFORE IT STOPS YOU! rant, and, who knows, maybe even knelt and kissed the hem of his robe.

Now you're not going to believe this, but once they'd made it back to civilization, these renegades immediately set about SOWING DOUBT & DIVISION IN THE RANKS!

First, the Q Society's go-to man at Fairfax, Paul Sheehan, threw a spanner in the works by actually conceding that MOST MUSLIMS ARE NOT FROTHING FUNDAMENTALISTS:

"[T]here is no Muslim monolith. The problem is a strain of violent, medieval, repressive Islamic fundamentalism that exists within every large Muslim community but does not define any large Muslim community." (Overkill in the name of Islam, Sydney Morning Herald, 25/2/13)

Then, as if that concession to the bleeding obvious were not bad enough, bloody Miranda Devine just up and lashed out at Geert something terrible.

True, she did kick off by condemning "Australia's shabby treatment of Geert Wilders" and faithfully recording his every (?) inspired utterance, but then, in an unforgivable affront to the coiffed Cassandra, the bitch actually went on a thinking binge:

"Much of what he says about the difficulties of Muslim integration in Europe is true. But I couldn't help but wonder how it would feel for the decent law-abiding Australian Muslims I know to sit in that room. What is wrong with a Muslim woman wearing a headscarf? What is wrong painting an arrow on the floor of a jail cell pointing to Mecca? What is wrong with Muslims building a mosque to pray in? And why keep calling Muhammad a paedophile? Some of what Wilders says is calculated to cause offence, and so if he is snubbed, he can blame himself." (Free speech stoned to death, Sunday Telegraph, 24/2/13)

Islamic fundamentalism does not define any large Muslim community? Decent, law-abiding Muslims I know...?

Really now, with 'friends' like these...

Hurray, political correctness had triumphed!

Common sense more likely.

Oh, and have you ever considered in enrolling in a remedial English course by any chance?

No, why? Do they teach "common sense"?

MERC said...

Why? Well, I'd always assumed that one of the key criteria for belonging to the Master Race was literacy, yet I notice you have a problem with the present and past perfect tenses.

Come on MERC, a bit of "common sense"! Sorry to disappoint you but, alas or Thank God, I do not belong to the Master Race (I am not Cory, either), so a little bit of illiteracy is allowed (when you think that in the USA an estimated 32 million adults are incapable to read anything more challenging than a children 's picture book or to understand a medication's side effects listed on a pill bottle, I fare pretty well).

MERC said...

Mm... Touchy! OK, you're not Cory and you're not a member of the MR, but you're definitely superior to Muslims, right?

How would you appreciate people who can firmly believe in the authenticity of the "Gospel of Barnabas"? Who push it to prove your wickedness? Who believe that it will bring down Christianity? Would you not say that they are intellectually challenged?

MERC said...

Please answer my question.

Anonymous said...

Was I not clear? Those who listen to the true Gospel are definitely superior to those who listen to fake ones.

MERC said...

So you're a Christian supremacist then?

Anonymous said...

What is a Christian "supremacist"?

MERC said...

For Jehovallah's sake, woman, enrol in that remedial English class, will you? I'm not responsible for your lousy English.

OK MERC, I could not imagine that you would become SO angry. I throw the towel. Go back to what you are very good at and is, believe me, the ONLY reason I follow your blog: "exposing pro-Israel bias....etc". Political correctness only weakens your message and cast doubts on your sincerity (that I do not question). All the noise regarding the Muslims is engineered by the same manipulators. Take care.

MERC said...

Me angry? I haven't even started. Still I'm glad to see you regard Middle East Reality Check as the True Gospel.
