A reaction that is worst than the cartoonish insult

I have attempted in a different blog to post a comment regarding the controversy of the "Danish Cartoons" (mediachannel.org/blog/node/3182?from=50&comments_per_page=50). The first posting fell victim to censorship which proved my point exactly. And my point was that these editorial cartoons had no ligitimate point to convey except to express the editors/cartoonists bigotry. I wrote that had the subject of these cartoons been Jews or Jewish matter the guilt filled anti-Semites in Europe would have been up in arms and the editors responsible would have been burned on a stake and no one would have risen in their support.

It seems that the "civilized" people in the developed world (the West) must always have some other race or group of people to pick on, torture, burn, or bury in mass graves. In the past few centuries it was mostly the Jews, but now it is mostly the Arabs and Muslims. As a result of the holocaust and the sequelae of WW-II and the rising influence of American Jews, persecuting Jews was no longer an option.

The search for a suitable victim-race was in earnest when the tragedy of 9-11 occurred, a destructive act of terrorism conceived and executed by a bunch of deranged "muslim" fanatics who had obviously undergone a thorough brainwashing. Since that point the targeting of Arabs and Muslims (or anyone that fits the physical profile) became acceptable regardless of their citizenship or where they lived. As always it is first necessary to dehumanize and demonize the new enemy. This is accomplished using the usual tools, primarily the media including the movies, but also newspapers and cartoons. The cartoons in question are the Scandinavian contribution to this western endeavor, because as I have already pointed out, these cartoons have no moral or political or social value to convey to the Scandinavian citizen or to muslims worldwide. The only apparent purpose was to mock and provoke for the purpose of demonizing and dehumanizing the new enemy.

Unfortunately, Muslims these days are their own worst enemies. In my view, the most effective response to these cartoons was simply to ignore them totally and completely, without however losing sight of the more important aspects of the relationships between the Muslims and Europe or between Muslims and the US, and that is the actual practical policies of these governments and how they affect the lives of Muslims and their most dear causes. The most important of these causes is DEMOCRACY and FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Hypocritical European and American leaders who preach democracy while at the same time sponsor and support the dictators in Muslim nations should have caused Muslims to demonstrate day and night all over the world to expose and condemn their hypocracy and force them to stop propping these decaying despots.
Instead, local dictators as well as Western leaders exploited these violent demonstrations for their own political purposes. Gadhafi, for instance, withdraw his ambassodor from Copenhagen to show that he has the fortitude to stand up to an European country in an attempt to compensate for his total capitulation to the US & the UK over the past three years. Whereas, the Bush administration is using this issue to intensify its pressure on both Iran and Syria.

The violent demonstrations that were supposedly spontaneous and provoked by the publication of these cartoons serve only to strengthen the steotypes of the backward and violent muslim that are promoted by the Westren media, not to mention the fact that this irrational reaction is contrary to the true Islamic tradition of tolerance.

In addition, this reaction betrays a great deal of insecurity on part of the demonstrating muslims. A nation confident and secure in its values and faith would not be shaken so violently by mere drawings on disposable paper that would be eventually recycled into toilet paper.

He glanced at the orange-colored Jim Crow http://startso11.info/medussa.html with distaste, and inspiration, dawning slowly upon him, swept all other thought before it in its great and growing glory.. I identify myself with him because the fate of his discovery appears to me typical of http://startso11.info/%C5%82eee.html the acceptance of my own.. She answered, http://startso11.info/www.youtube.com.html heroically: Perfectly, sir.. Though we do not admit as special sources of the dream the subjective state of excitement of the sensory organs during sleep, which seems to have been demonstrated by Trumbull Ladd, we http://storyah44.info/bite.html are nevertheless able to explain this excitement through the regressive revival of active memories behind the dream.. Yes, sir, with pleasure; if you will be good enough to get into my boat, I http://startso11.info/materace.pl.html will row you out to them ! Vat dat you say, sure? My friend, said the farmer, this section of Long Island has recently been bought up by the speculators of New York, and laid out for a great city; but the principal street is only visible at low tide.. If I hear any more I shall http://startso11.info/pup+rzeszow.html absolutely hate the Watkinsons.. ' The dream then tells you that you cannot give a supper, thereby fulfilling your wish not to contribute anything to the rounding out of your http://startso11.info/levis+strauss.html friend's figure.. In accordance with this proposition we have construed the theory of the dream on the assumption that the actuating dream-wish invariably originates in the unconscious, which, as we ourselves have admitted, cannot be universally demonstrated http://startso11.info/www.W%C5%82atcy+m%C3%B3ch.pl.html though it cannot be refuted..

Perhaps only through still further advance can enlightenment and http://rebestal.info/centrum+kszta%C5%82cenia+ustawicznego+w+Warszawie.html improvement be brought about.. In dreams of men one often finds the cravat as a symbol for the penis; this indeed is not only because cravats hang down long, and are characteristic of the man, but also because one can select them at pleasure, a freedom which is http://startso11.info/opis+rtp+ozdobnym.html prohibited by nature in the original of the symbol..

Angle had it, and the school maintained that pronunciation ever after. http://startso11.info/www.sj.uw.edu.pl.html. I have explained this fear by the fact that sexual excitement is not mastered by their understanding, and is probably also inacceptable to them http://startso11.info/meitene-kalvivia.html because their parents are involved in it.. Does that mean http://startso11.info/rossman.html that you're still hanging around here to begin over and make a call? asked Ross, darkly.. We thus see http://startso11.info/kruszwica+org.html that the day remnants, among which we may now include the indifferent impressions when they participate in the dream formation, not only borrow from the Unc.. Leonard's as soon as we http://startso11.info/www.alledgro.p%5Bl.html possibly can.. The physician must reserve for himself http://startso11.info/9881-b.html the right to penetrate, by a process of deduction, from the effect on consciousness to the unconscious psychic process; he learns in this way that the effect on consciousness is only a remote psychic product of the unconscious process and that the latter has not become conscious as such; that it has been in existence and operative without betraying itself in any way to consciousness..

Podington, I am truly sorry about it, http://startso11.info/Jezioro+Polska.html but I cannot arrange for it this year..

So back to town went Elder Brown, not in the order of the early morn, but silently, http://rebestal.info/cannabis%2Bzdrowie.html moodily, despairingly, surrounded by mental and actual gloom..

現在來談談
台中搬家公司的未來展望,買新房子想從北屯搬到台中七期,當然要找台中搬家公司來執行台中搬家,明年台中縣市就要合併升格,到時候就無所謂台中縣搬家公司了,就只剩下台中市搬家公司。一搬來說大台中地區包括台中縣市,也包含彰化及南投,所以網路上找中部地區搬家公司,就會用南投搬家公司或者彰化搬家公司


再來談行的問題,景氣不是很好很多人買不起新車只好買中古車囉!中古車買賣是需要技巧的,胡亂買中古車可能會吃大虧的,消費者可要睜大眼睛看清楚,免得買了後悔不已。如果買新車的話,就沒有剛剛的問題,新車業務員在交車時一般都會幫車主貼隔熱紙,就是我們所說的汽車隔熱紙,不過他們貼的隔熱紙品質都不是挺好的,相信很多車主有許多不愉快經驗吧!有了車之後免不了要學開車吧!一般學開車是要到駕訓班,當然也可以叫做汽車駕訓班,聽說學費不便宜喔!還是省一點好,不要亂花錢。

經濟不景氣,討論借錢的話題很多人應開有興趣,在台北想借錢或者汽車借款可以到台北當舖或者是台北市當舖台北縣當舖當然也可以,如果是住在台北火車站到台北市當舖借錢比較方便。那我住在內湖就可以到內湖區當舖借錢融資囉!住在東區就找信義區當舖借錢,以此類推。一般支票貼現也有辦理,銀行有辦理票貼當舖也有阿,而且比銀行更方便,利息雖然高一點不過時效性卻非常好,一般工商人士短期借款就很喜歡到當舖的原因。我家現在住在桃園想融資票貼就得到桃園當舖,方便的桃園借錢真的幫到我了,桃園汽車借錢也非常有名,很多人都需要協助。住新竹的人往新竹當舖借貸是比較方便。來到台中手頭不方便,想週轉借貸一下台中當舖是有這樣的服務,報紙或者網路上隨時都可以查到台中
縣當舖
的資訊,因為台中當舖是非常有名的,服務也相當好。往台灣南部走先碰到的是嘉義當舖,借錢票貼一樣容易,聽說嘉義還蠻好玩的,火雞肉飯不錯吃喔!再往南走將會遇到高雄當舖,高雄人是很熱情的,借錢當然也不囉唆,依據話就搞定。鳳山再過一點點就到達台灣最南邊的屏東,一樣有屏東當舖可以服務缺錢的人,住在台灣真方便,哪裡都可以週轉融資。

有錢之後男人花樣變多了,想輕鬆一下,台中大大有名的就是台中護膚台中指油壓,不去體驗一下怎麼可以呢!食色性也這是孔老夫子講的,想找一些網路上情色消遣,只要關鍵字打上一夜情,視訊聊天,免費視訊聊天,免費視訊,視訊交友,情色貼圖,讓你看的眼花撩亂,爽快不已,E時代就是這麼方便,彈指可取情色
資訊。找女朋友到motel去休息,要挑好一點有情趣的汽車旅館,這種錢是一定不能省的,燈光美氣氛佳才能辦好事。

身體要強、要勇,買花旗蔘來補身一定有用,不過要用加拿大來的西洋蔘功效比較好,不信可以問一下專家的意見,相信他所給的答案就是粉光蔘。
