In a recent sermon, Sheik Taj Aldin al Hilali (an Australian Muslim cleric) claimed, "If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside ... without cover, and the cats come to eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats' or the uncovered meat's?" "The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred." So, in other words, men are merely animals who have no control over their animal instincts and are therefore entitled to rape any woman who does not wear a hijab (a Muslim headdress)? They have no inherent sense of right or wrong and so it is understandable, if they do rape, because it was the woman's fault anyway because she tempted the man with her bare head? Oh, for Goodness sakes! This is so representative of the pre-historic mentality that these Islamic/non secular Muslims have. Women as chattel. Women as nothing more than conduits for childbearing or fulfilling a 'man's' sexual pleasure.

I had just been thinking about this issue recently. I remember traveling around Europe several years ago, during a particularly hot summer, and noticing that many of the female Arab tourists were dressed in full Muslim regalia (some even in niqabs), and yet their men were in jeans and t-shirts. I was incensed at the inequity and felt terrible for the women. Here the men were nice and cool in their western clothing and their women, I knew, must be sweltering under their heavy robes.

I'll admit, a certain amount of modesty is commendable. Frankly, the way some of our young women dress today I find almost obscene and overly provocative. Jeans down to below the navel could provoke some sexual predator to rape, but to say that a woman's bare head is like meat to a cat is truly asinine!

Hilali claimed he was not condoning rape after his comments elicited many complaints and demands for his resignation. We shall see if this happens!

The owner of a medical supply company, Li Jianping, was sentenced to 3 years in prison, for 'subversion', after posting essays on the internet that were critical of the Chinese government.

The same thing is happening in Vietnam, another lovely communist regime, where internet users are being arrested for engaging in political debate. If you look at the list of Cyberdissidents who have been imprisoned (on the Reporters Sans Frontiere (Reporters without Borders) website) notice which countries have the most listed. China has, by far, the most followed by Vietnam, and the rest listed are Islamic countries.

Here we go again! I wrote about this in yesterday's post. A system that can't withstand a little criticism and attempts to silence those who do, does not deserve to exist. Freedom is a God given gift and should be vigorously defended at all costs.

On September 30th, at the Nepalese border with Tibet, a Romanian filmmaker (who was part of an international group of mountaineers) captured on film more than 70 Tibetan pilgrim/refugees being shot at by Chinese border guards as they tried to make their way to India. You can hear one unidentified foreign witness declaring, in English, "They are shooting them like... like dogs", and the disturbing video demonstrates just that. 2 people were killed, including a young Tibetan nun. The mountaineers claim about 20 to 30 people including about 7 to 10 children were "taken into custody", and the rest eventually made it to India. Chinese officials claim they shot in self defense, but the footage clearly shows the opposite.

Now there are reports that the foreign witnesses and their sherpas are being tracked down to silence them. It's not surprising, really, as this is so typical of totalitarian political systems, and reminiscent of another oppressive ideology, albeit a religious one: Islam. Silence or kill anyone who happens to be critical of their actions. They might have different approaches, but the end result is the same.

I have always argued that if communism is such a great system why are people forced to remain under its rule and murdered for trying to leave?! The same thing happened to the poor East Berliners from 1949 until reunification in 1990; they were shot, like animals, as they attempted to escape into West Berlin. And what I find truly frightening is the steady increase in leftist leaning politicians being elected to office, in South and Central America; and I have to wonder what that current trend will lead to, in the long run.

It also amazes me how the U.S. is still constantly condemned for its purported 'imperialism' , yet countries like China, which invaded Tibet and has been there illegally since the 1950s, are never criticized. And look at the history of the Russian Empire and that of Britain, Spain, France, and the list goes on. Comparatively speaking, America has been tame.

However, what I really want to know is why it has taken so long for this information to make it to the mainstream media? I don't recall reading anything about the September 30th shootings until recently!

Venezuela lost its bid for a seat in the U.N. Security Council and the candidates that Hugo Chavez lobbied for, in both Mexico and Peru, lost their elections in favor of more pro U.S., democratic leaders. He must be fuming, considering many of the governments who outwardly claimed they would support his U.N. seat obviously voted against him (by secret ballot) when the time came. It looks like major cosmic retribution for all his bluster and anti-U.S. rhetoric.

Venezuela might be oil-rich, but I know which country I would want as an ally, if I happened to be a foreign country.

He also talks about U.S. hegemony, he needs to take a good look in the mirror.

For all the criticism Chris Wallace received for his interview with Bill Clinton, it turns out he is a registered "Democrat"! So much for claims of conservative bias.

Apparently he votes both sides of the coin. Maybe more people should do that: consider the candidate not the party, but liberals seem unable to see past their hatred of anyone or anything Republican and usually vote party line. Tsk. Tsk.

Why is it that when Republicans commit reprehensible acts they are vociferously condemned by the Democrats and the media, whereas similar acts by Democrats are largely ignored?

What Foley did was despicable, but there is no proof he actually had sexual relations with any of the congressional pages he emailed or instant messaged. On the other hand, Rep Gerry Studds, a Democratic Congressman from Massachusetts who served from 1973 until 1997, was censured in 1983 for having sexual relations with an underage 'page' and was subsequently rewarded by being re-elected 5 more times!

No-one ever seemed to care much about Clinton's lies re. his liaison with Monica Lewinsky or his other sexual dalliances, for that matter. My liberal friends and colleagues vehemently defended him, claiming that what he did in private was his own business in spite of the fact that, as an authority figure, he should have been above reproach. No-one seemed to mind, either, that his blatant lies, in front of the whole world no less, made him and the U.S. laughing stocks. I have spoken with foreigners who have all mentioned this fact.

As for sexual harassment. Consider the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill controversy versus the Clinton/Paula Jones controversy. I recall both Thomas and Paula Jones were the vilified ones.

Republicans are held to an unfair, higher moral standard than Democrats and just demonstrates how hypocritical liberals can be. Moral decrepitude, should be condemned as such, whether you are a Republican or a Democrat!

Apparently, France's Action Police union believes its members are being targeted by radical Muslims in the banlieues as part of an "undeclared Intifada". Although others would disagree, it would seem highly likely.

Although there is a wide discrepancy regarding how many practicing Muslims there are in France, the estimate ranges between 3.1 million and 5 to 6 million.

France has the largest Muslim community in Europe and it is ever increasing. As of 2000, there were approximately 1 million Protestants, 0.6 million Buddhists, 0.53 million Jews, 0.15 million Orthodox Christians.

They are slowly flexing their muscles and no-one is doing a thing about it, which further empowers them.

We should look at France's problems and take heed!
