Insecure believers bring hate case against author

A French author has been charged with inciting racial hatred for saying, in an interview, that Islam is the most stupid of all religions. Four Muslim organisations have brought the action against Michel Houellebecq and we get to hear their explanation of how Islam is an ethnic religion, whose believers all come from the same 'race' on September 17th.

Houllebecq has also been threatened over the words he put into the mouth of a rather nasty fictional character in his forthcoming novel Platform. The character doesn't appear to like anyone: Every time I heard that a Palestinian terrorist, or a Palestinian child or a pregnant Palestinian woman had been gunned down in the Gaza strip, I felt a quiver of enthusiasm..., the Hong Kong Chinese are recognisable from their filthy manners... spraying bits of food everywhere and blowing their noses between their fingers - they behave quite literally like pigs and Frederick Forsyth is a half-wit.

So scared has the man been, for himself and for his wife, that he has said he will write no more. From his rare interviews, he seems quite terrified. We are back in familiar Rushdie territory. Except on this occasion, the liberal, western European democracy which is Houellebecq's home has connived with his aggressors.

Kirk apologises for sectarian role

The General Assembly of the Church of Scotland has passed a motion admitting bigotry in the past and regretting any part played in sectarianism by our church in the past and affirm our support for future moves towards a more tolerant society. That support will include working with the Roman Catholic Justice and Peace Commission to combat bigotry in Scotland. To demonstrate the Kirk's complicity, Rev. Alan McDonald read out part of a report presented to the General Assembly in 1923:

Entitled The Menace of the Irish Race to our Scottish Nationality, he said that it accused the Irish Roman Catholic population of being part of a papist conspiracy to subvert Presbyterian values and of being the principal cause of drunkenness, crime and financial imprudence.

About 40 protestors from the Scottish Reformation Movement picketed in protest at the motion. Led by Pastor Jack Glass (whom a friend describes as like a home-grown Scottish Ian Paisley, but nastier), they claimed that the Catholic Church was responsible for sectarianism. Glass said:

Those people inside have betrayed John Knox by calling the Church of Scotland sectarian. You won't see the Catholic Church betraying their martyrs like that.

Hate-free hate

Someone changed the English language while I was out. Radio Islam claims it stands for No hate. No violence. Races? Only one Human race. United We Stand, Divided We Fall. The site is multilingual, so what has been added lately in English? Well, there are the proceedings of the lofty-sounding International Conference on Global Problems of World History which took place in Moscow this January. There we learn that the ethnic origin of the World Trade Center's lessees is relevant, especially as they're engaging in the ancient tradition of screwing as much out of the insurance as possible:

In late July, two Jews, Larry Silverstein and Frank Lowy, secured 99-year leases on the towers. They insured the property for more than 3 billion dollars against terror attacks. Silverstein now claims that, as there were two separate attacks, he should receive twice the insured amount, more than 6 billion dollars.

An Austrian, Gerhoch Reisigger, told the conference:

Who are the enemies we will face in this titanic struggle? Nihilism, Materialism, Globalism -- the attempt to create a uni-polar world with a global Orwellian government -, and the paranoia of the Jewish people which considers itself the "chosen" one. May we be able to overcome the "Prince of the World" together with the Orthodox World and Islam! Such an alliance will perhaps be able to delay the coming of the Antichrist.

The attempts by the families of Holocaust victims to retrieve property stolen from them by the Nazis is The blackmail of Switzerland by evil Zionists and the Jews assaassinated Kennedy. Several papers concern themselves with the Holocaust, and how Auschwitz couldn't possibly have been used to kill lots and lots of people.

Other hate-free new additions include Jews and Crime, Hitler should have finished the job (even though he didn't even start it, honest), Jews in the Bush Administration and Jewish domination in pre-Nazi Germany. How loving and charming the people behind this site must be.

Loony site of the moment

Stop Child Rape Network is apparently based here in Edinburgh and is dedicated to exposing and solving the problem of the Worldwide Masonic Government Ritual Child Abuse & Murder Network.

Now and then, a fraction of these cases make national headlines because of mass public pressure. However the wholehearted truth of the matter is this - these Masonic government-sanctioned worldwide abuse cases are NOT isolated - most are all part and parcel of the intricate global network of child abuse - run by the CORE OF RAPE within our Government Intelligence Network. Whenever public pressure on these atrocities creates exposure throughout the public domain via the mass media as well as alternative publications and over the internet - it is ALL just the tip of the iceberg - of what is going on - all the time.

Here we learn that the recent child abuse scandal in Wales was not an example of people abusing their positions of authority over the vulnerable but was really Evil Satanists. It must be true - David Icke says so. The site also has an exciting new perspective on the Dunblane massacre:

Did you know that the mass murderer Thomas Hamilton who gunned down 16 children aged 5 ñ 6 on March 13th 1996 in Dunblane, Scotland, was a Freemason Paedophile?
Possibly not, as this knowledge was well censored from the Freemasonic run mass-media. Hamilton was initiated in 1977 and was a member of the Garrow Hill Freemasons Lodge.
He was also known to the police as a paedophile after being "dismissed" from several boys clubs for his "unnatural behavior".
Hamilton was granted a gun license by his "brother" freemason Inspector McMurdo after being consistently refused a firearms certificate prior to his initiation into the Masons. Some insightful researchers believe that the massacre was possibly a covert occult sacrifice, engineered by the Masonic "Core of Rape" within the Intelligence hierarchy.

And for good measure, Waco was a Satanic human sacrifice as well. (via everlasting blort).

Barbie is evil

Iranian police are cracking down on Barbie following a vague proclamation denouncing her as "unislamic", confiscating the dolls from shops. Religious authorities in Iran feel increasingly insecure as the electorate consistently vote for reformists.Despite a ban on direct trade, and official distaste, US products are easily found in Iran. More positively, the Iranian "Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children & Young Adults" has produced its own "Iranian National Dolls", Dara and Sara, dressed in a range of traditional Iranian clothing from different parts of the country.

Dara and Sara are Iranian. They are twins and eight years old. Their mother is a housewife. She is their best advisor and helps them out in their troubles. Their father works in Iran Cultural Heritage Organization. Therefore they have the chance to travel to different parts of Iran with their father, see the sightseeing, know the tradition, wear the customs and learn about that region. Dara and Sara live in an old garden house. There is a small pool in the middle of the yard with lots of gold fish. They also have a hen and chicks and a cat. Their cat is naughty, so they have to take a good care of the chicks and the fish. Sara likes science very much and sometimes carries out experiments in their basement. She is very good at sports. She is a fan of football and plays table tennis. She wishes to became a teacher when she grows up. Dara is also a fan of football, but he also likes wrestling. He is an adventurous boy, In his dreams he becomes an astronaut or an archeologist. It is fun to follow Dara and Sara's adventures.

Limits of free speech defined

A US federal appeals court has ruled that the content of the "Nuremburg Files" website, which publishes personal details of doctors who perform abortions in the form of Wild West style "Wanted" posters, amounts to illegal threats and is therefore not protected free speech. The religious campaigners must now pay damages to four doctors who sued, fearing for their lives.

At least three doctors have been murdered after being targetted by the site's creators. One of the defendants, Michael Bray, wrote a book which tried to justify the murders and has served a prison sentence for his involvement in seven bombings.

Divine Gastroenteritis

Lighthouse Baptist Church in Sullivan, Missouri describes itself as **Independent**Fundamental**Premillenial** and as part of its vision to learn and live the Bible, provides some interesting commentary on a well-known 17th century version of that book. As well as arguing that Jesus had short hair, unlike every other Jewish man 2000 years ago, we learn that America Needs to Apologize to Hitler!:

We often criticize Hitler for His massacre of nearly 6 million Jews in his concentration camps when we have abortions performed underneath our very noses.

Note the capitalisation of "His". But the most interesting article is the one on how to make God throw up.

He says that this church was neither cold nor hot, but lukewarm and because of that condition, He will spue thee out of His mouth. What is really interesting is that something must be really, really bad or gross or disgusting for God to literally puke. I am going to explain why I think that this church really made God disgusting.

It seems that God is completely grossed out by Christians:

Our clothes make God puke
Our music make God puke
Our Christian stores make God puke
Our books make God puke
Our offerings make God puke
Our bibles (false bibles) make God puke
Our prayer life make God puke
Our bible reading make God puke
Our soul wining makes God puke
Our churches make God puke
Our hairstyles make God puke
Our jewelry makes God puke
Our conversation makes God puke

Religious freedom in France

The Paris chapter of the Church of Scientology and its president have each been fined for violating the privacy rights of former members. Prosecutors said that former members were harassed long after they had left the organisation. Charges of fraud and false advertising were thrown out.

The group is likely to receive close attention under a controversial new French law which allows courts to order the immediate dissolution of any movement regarded as a cult whose members are found guilty of such existing offences as fraud, abuse of confidence, the illegal practice of medicine, wrongful advertising and sexual abuse. Human rights campaigners and religious groups are concerned about the tight focus of the law - it only affects groups deemed to be cults, so if the current child abuse scandal happened in France, the Roman Catholic church would have nothing to worry about. Treating people and groups differently under the law based on their beliefs is contrary to article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which France signed on November 4th 1950, and ratified on May 5th 1974. The article reads, in part:

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.

Although there is a limitation, to protect the freedoms of others, for public safety, to prevent crime and to protect public health and morals, this doesn't justify treating smaller, less-established religious groups more severely that the major religions when they, or their members, break existing laws.

Blood libel thriving

United States: The ancient Blood Libel has surfaced in San Francisco, of all places. Four organisations, Associated Students, the General Union of Palestinian Students, the Muslim Student Association and the unidentified WIA have lent their names to a poster which deliberately confuses the Israeli government and Jews in general.

The poster incorporates the two most common elements to this medieval racist slur. It suggests (1)that Jews ingest the flesh and/or blood of children, and (2)that there are rites associated with the Jewish religion which detail how to perform this cannibalism. Note that this vicious racism is not directed specifically at Israel but at Jews, for it reads,slaughtered according to Jewish rites.

In a related story, the Jerusalem Post (which will admittedly be biased) gives its account of a Peace in the Middle East rally and the actions of the counter-demonstrators at the same institution - San Francisco State University. Professor Laurie Zoloth, director of the Jewish Studies programme at the university, circulated her account of what happened when Palestinian supporters descended on a group of 50 students who stayed behind to clean up and conduct a prayer service, after singing Hebrew songs and hearing speeches in support of Israel:

They screamed at us to 'go back to Russia' and they screamed that they would kill us all, and other terrible things...As the counter-demonstrators poured into the plaza, screaming at the Jews to 'Get out or we'll kill you' and 'Hitler didn't finish the job,' I turned to the police and to every administrator I could find and asked them to remove the counter-demonstrators from the plaza, to maintain the separation of 100 feet that we had been promised. The police told me that they had been told not to arrest anyone, and that if they did, 'it would start a riot.' I told them that it already was a riot.

It's not just those wacky Americans though. Here in Edinburgh, posters have gone up all over town showing a version of a well-known washing powder box with Jewish symbols on it and the phrase Ariel Sharon ethnically cleanses whiter than white - probably the only war crime he isn't guilty of.

'Witch' murderer convicted

A man has been convicted of killing and beheading a woman he though was going to use witchcraft against him. 27-year-old Ivan Sanchez-Lara was found guilty of nine charges relating to the murder of 31-year-old Kathleen Lopez in October 2000. His lawyer had tried to blame drugs for his client's actions. First-degree murder conviction in beheading trial - KOB-TV (New Mexico, US), May 16th 2002.
