Coming Nuclear Insanity Over the Offensive Cartoons? By James Reed
While I am a defender of Western civilisation, and oppose mass migration of Muslims, not because I hate these people, but for the traditional reasons that I do not believe diversity works for anyone, I strongly oppose vilification of Islam and making offensive school boy Muhammed cartoons, that are more likely to be found on the walls of broken down public toilets than on government buildings. Yes, we have seen French president Emmanuel Macron endorse the cartoons, which in an act of insane inflammation, were then projected onto government buildings, which effectively says that France supports the cartoons.
The angry reaction from the Muslim world has been predictable and I think, understandable. In the past, when this cartoon issue first arose, one of the most extreme responses was that Islam should nuke any country officially supporting the cartoons, with this story being about Holland in 2018:
“NEW DELHI: A Pakistani hardline Islamist group leader, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, who has fielded as many as 152 candidates for the upcoming general elections in the country, has said that if he were given “the atom bomb”, he would “wipe Holland off the face of this earth” if it allowed a competition of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad.
“If they give me the atom bomb I would remove Holland from the face of the earth before they can hold a competition of caricatures… I will wipe them off the face of this earth,” said Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan Ya Rasool Allah (TLP) chief Rizvi, showed a Samaa TV video of his interactions with the media.
The TLP chief said this to reporters at a media interaction organised by the Karachi Press Club last week.
He was referring to an equally hardline – sort of the flip side of the TLP coin – Dutch group’s announcement last month. The Freedom Party of Dutch’s anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders said in June it will hold a competition of cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad, reported news agency Reuters.
TLP is the fundamentalist Islamist group that brought Pakistan’s capital Islamabad to a standstill last November to oppose changes in strict blasphemy laws. Why? Its raison d étre is the protection of the blasphemy laws.
Last November, more than 2,000 TLP members and supporters staged a three-week-long sit-in at Faizabad, the intersection of the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad, crippling life in the region.
Their beef? A small change – which the Pakistani government soon called a “clerical error” – to the oath taken by parliamentary candidates. What was altered was that a candidate need just say they “believe” rather than “solemnly swear by” the fact that the Prophet Muhammad is the final prophet.
“No can do,” said TLP’s Rizvi. The government rolled back the change in the oath – in fact this was done before the TLP agitation – and Rizvi’s theatrics even led to the resignation of law minister Zahid Hamid, whom the TLP declared a “blasphemer” for changing the wording. …”
While Islamic national leaders have not gone so far today as to proclaim the need for nuclear war, given Frances extensive arsenal, it does indicate how seriously these offensive cartoons are. And for what, since free speech on almost everything else is censored, such as the Covid-1984 lockdown, which is now rolling into France? Maybe this is all smoke screen to take the sheeples’ mind off of their more extensive loss of freedoms?
