Hurray! They're not capitulating

Within hours after a plot to murder Kurt Westergaard was foiled, yesterday Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten republished the cartoonist's drawing of Mohammed which is depicting the Muslim prophet with a bomb under his turban.

And again I do regret that - not listening to Tetrapilotomos' advice - I did not found factories in which I could let produce flags on demand in all those countries in which pious philanthropists would encourage their (sic) people to give evidence of how peace-loving and tolerant their religion is.

Instead of presenting pictures showing burning flags and / or well educated humanitarians holding posters with slogans such as Death to / Kill /Massacre / Slaughter those who insult Islam" and or "Europe you will pay, your 9/11 will come", I do allow myself to recommend reading following essay by Henryk M. Broder which is an excerpt from his book
Hurra! We're capitulating.

Ah, well, and due to a recent occurrance here another piece by the same author: Shariah Is for Everyone!


  1. The Fatwah will be on you, sir, as it might be on me.

  2. The only cure for any person promoting Sharia, is to make their glorified dream a reality and that person ought to be shipped to Saudi Arabia.
    When confronted with realism, all theological grandeur will be erased.

  3. James,
    I shall immediately hide myself in Seanhenge. :)

    I suppose in many cases even this would not help.

  4. You may well discover something, for in certain circumstances, time is not linear.

  5. Anon,
    although I do enjoy (trying) to solve enigmata: would you please give me a clue?
