Oh. Remember that 28kg of Semtex stolen in France the other day?
Important to me at least, because I’m intrigued and it’s bugging me.
Is “A Mighty Heart” worth watching at all?
I have suspicions that Hollywood would have completely destroyed the true story of Daniel Pearl and what happened to end his life in such a horrific fashion, but I thought I’d ask for reviews rather than watching it and destroying my TV.
Tips/Hints and especially opinions are greatly appreciated!
AN embarrassed Kevin Rudd has been forced to apologise to Muslim delegates at this month’s 2020 Summit because their religious dietary needs were ignored by caterers who could not tell the difference between halal and vegetarian food.
In the absence of halal food – prepared in accordance to Sharia dietary laws – the Islamic delegates were forced to eat “salad sandwiches and vegetarian pies”.
- – -
“Vegetarian is not halal. Vegetarian is vegetarian. Halal food is totally different, shouldn’t you guys (the caterers) have done your homework?”
The claims about what is “halal” or not are out and out lies. These bastards just lurv to have ignorant kafirs grovelling at their feet on any pretext. Especially when they can fool a PM into it as well. Bet they’re wetting their pants laughing.
I’ve organised many functions and events, massive, large, medium, small and mini, and so have had to ensure that the caterers provided kosher and “halal” meals on various occasions. Vegetarian is just fine. “Halal” refers to the method of killing beef, goats etc., not the method of general food preparation.
“The management of the catering company came to us and he was almost crying in front of us about how sorry he was,” Mr Rahman said. “He was apologising throughout the whole weekend.”
The more these people are appeased, the higher and wider the definition of “halal” grows. First, it expanded to claim that “haram” and “halal” food could not be touched by the same utensils, then couldn’t be stored in the same cupboards/fridges and then again, not even be in the same kitchen (that’s why all meals served at Port Hedland hospital are “halal”). Now they’re claiming the method any food preparation must be according to their latest, ever-elastic definition of “halal”.
And those fools in Canberra just keep falling for every new, outlandish claim.
Mr Rudd’s apology to Muslim delegates follows revelations by The Australian last month that the Federal Government was considering setting up a Muslim advisory body – which would include sporting figures and academics – to help dismantle the stereotypical and overly religious image of Islam in Australia.
Also of note is the absence of cries of outrage. Didn’t someone once have this idea…?
The Australian public broadcaster is fairly renowned for its lefty bias, however in recent times it has hit a new low, providing a haven for a particularly vile anti-semite known as “Mulga mumblebrain”.
No accusation is to vile to point at the “evvvil Jooos!!”, and as a result it has been barred from commenting in a number of places. The ABC runs a moderated forum called “unleashed” which provides an open area for articles and commentary from people outside the ABC. All well and good, however its apparent sanction of jewhate by its commenters is beyond the pale. I have reported a couple of the worst ones for moderation, and as they are still present, I can only draw the conclusion that the ABC has no problems with blood libel and anti-semitism.
The worst of these filth is a creature Called Mulga. It is my intention to start a little ‘Mulgawatch” section here with quotes from the ABC forums, a log of comments “reported to moderators” and any responses by the ABC.
I hope El Cid will indulge me in this little vanity project. The following post is extremely long, and only comprises a fraction of comments from this poster. It would be extremely satisfying if a few of us could lodge enough complaints to embarass the ABC into removing such filth from a government funded website. please ad your own “report comment” by visiting the website and picking a couple of favourites.
(Apologies for not commenting much, am starting a new business as well as working, so am as busy as a dingo in a child care centre)

And let us begin our thrilling reading:
Once again, Muslims are calling for everything in the world to change to suit their ideological desires. The current move is to replace Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) with Mecca Time.
One geologist argued that unlike other longitudes, Mecca’s was in perfect alignment to magnetic north.
This of course, requires us to ignore the fact that magnetic north is constantly changing. But boy, will it be fun watching them move Mecca every couple of years! I wonder if they’ll use something like this? If so, it’s a good thing they’re constantly breeding with goats, because they’ll need an awful lot of them. I digress, however, and back to the article.
He said the English had imposed GMT on the rest of the world by force when Britain was a big colonial power, and it was about time that changed.
I’m thinking, if that’s the criteria for deciding what time standard to use, and it has to do with power, shouldn’t we be using a time standard from the USA? I mean, the same types of people pushing this Mecca-time thing are constantly telling us that the USA has too much power and is always taking advantage and pushing the boundaries, so let’s have fun with it!
I demand my USA time immediately. I expect nothing less from the Big Bad USA. I demand my full oppression! Stop giving me freedom and oppress me! I can’t rely on Australia to do it now we’ve gotten rid of that evil HoWARd.
The latest three messages from al-Qaeda addressing the Sunni community uncover the depth of the crisis that al-Qaeda is facing in its former host community.
The threatening tone of the missives from the alleged Abu Omar Baghdadi and Aby Ayyub, and the insulting tone of the second by Zawahiri, reflect mistrust, anxiety and a dire need to retrieve what was lost.
Death threats do not represent a serious call for cooperation on an achievable objective. This “work-for-me-or-I-kill-you” tone is completely different from the usual recruiting slogans that have focused on the ideology of fighting for absolute truth against absolute evil.
Those slogans have failed, which is why they have been discarded and replaced by threats and an effort to seek out third parties to render verdicts on disagreements, which is what Baghdadi alluded to when he proposed that some (not all!) Sunni clerics come forward to mediate between al-Qaeda and the public.
This call for mediation indicates first, that al-Qaeda has lost direct contact with the public and second, that there are still some clerics involved with al-Qaeda.
