The Counterjihad Calendar: July

Stop the Sharia Clock!


The month of July in the Counterjihad Calendar is represented by The United States of America.

Here in the U.S.A. we are not as Islamized as Europe, but we’re working on it. A few more legal victories for CAIR, the election of a Democrat as president, another five years of lax border controls, and we’ll catch up with our European friends.

I have chosen the Statue Liberty as the United States’ iconic monument for the calendar.

“Give me your terrorists, your imams, your huddled madrassas, yearning to enslave us.”

(Click for a larger image):

Enough!

I had to pick and choose from the available sites for a list of American Counterjihad websites, and even then they overflowed the sidebar and spread across the bottom of the image. It was necessary to leave out a lot of good websites, including most of the milbloggers, in order to cull the list.

To restrict the list a little bit, the sites I chose have a major anti-jihad focus, or concentrate on combating PC and Multiculturalism, or focus on foreign affairs and national security. Even so, I had to leave a lot of them out.

So… I’ve selected the following list of American Counterjihad websites for the calendar.

I still need help collecting URLs for the remaining countries. The goal is to fill up each sidebar with Counterjihad sites.

Once again, the twelve countries I will be using for the 2008 calendar are:

  • France
  • Denmark
  • Germany
  • India
  • Sweden
  • Italy
  • The U.S.A.
  • Greece
  • Britain
  • Australia
  • The Netherlands
  • Spain

For each country involved, I invite readers to post suggested Counterjihad links in the comments, or send them via email. I particularly need links for Britain, the Netherlands, Spain, and Greece.

With luck, the 2008 Counterjihad Calendar will be finished and available at our Café Press site sometime in September.

Next up on the calendar is Greece, for the month of August. I especially need Greek links — I have almost no Greek Counterjihad sites on my list.

Ωσ Εδω!

Nice touch putting libety in a burkah.

Baron and Dymphna,

It's humble and so on, but it's definitely not right to leave out your own site, www.gatesofvienna.blogspot.com. This is the first American site to belong in the list.

Baron Bodissey said...

CS --

Relax. Look at the cover of the calendar, the big green "stop the sharia clock" image. We're on the bottom of that one.

Jauhara said...

I am honored to be included in your Jack Bauer CT Club! By the by, I am foisting upon the blogosphere two new places, soon to be up and running. One will deal specifically with persecuted Christians, and the other will deal with all things wonderfully Haram...called Tasty Infidelicacies. Food and Jazz, and wicked wimmin's wiles ...everything the mujahedin just hate....to stop looking at.

Oriana said...

"Take a look: Mrs. "Tito" (she's american) in Greece:

I wish I could translate laicité into german.

"Note: I have deleted the comment from “Oriana” (presumably a pseudonym referring to

the vicious but thankfully now dead Ms Fallaci)

of the “Gates of Vienna” blog.

I would ask that Oriana and her comrades stay off our pages. There are many websites, I’m sure, that would be happy to have correspondence from them:

Michelle Malkin in the USA, for example, and I don’t doubt there are

le Penist blogs in France

and neonazi blogs in Germany

where “Oriana” and her comrades would feel at home.

Not here, though; we’re democrats."

Il Mango said...

We are democrats, she writes, then proceeds to delete a post because she does not like it...
I rest my case.

Eric said...

Hey Baron,

Here are a few Brit blogs I like in case you still need some:

Drunken Blogging
A Tangled Web
The Lone Voice
Crucification

Very nicely done. I think this is the best image yet.

Sissy Willis said...

'Love the image. Not so crazy about not being invited to the party. :-(

Baron Bodissey said...

Sissy, dear, I said quite clearly in the post that I couldn't possibly include all the good blogs. I couldn't even use all of our own blogroll, much less all the possible worthwhile sites that are out there.

I had to leave a lot of them off, and I knew that I would be bound to piss someone off, which I obviously have.

So… I’ve selected the following list of American Counterjihad websites for the calendar. (...) http://sigmundcarlandalfred.wordpress.com

No wonder the blog Sigmund, Carl and Alfred was selected for the list, considering its author's consistently critical and non-apologetic stance on Islam. Just have a look at some excerpts from the highly critical post From The Mailbag: “We are currently battling a formidible foe from the inside (emphases mine):

- "Arab and Muslim societies, led by dysfunctional political and religious leaders, have redefined what it means to an Arab or Muslim. These societies have proven themselves incapable of producing good and decent citizens. Islam, once a religion that was the model for religious tolerance and a culture under which other religions were allowed to flourish, is now barely capable of acknowledging it’s own past. Islam today is recognized for it’s hate and belligerence- not the enlightenment, science, art and literature that contributed to the progress of humankind."

- "In painting Islam with one brush, we are doing ourselves no favors and in fact, are making no friends. Is it any wonder that poll after poll indicates that young Muslims are attracted to the more radical expressions of their faith?"

- "(...) Islam is indeed compatible with western notions of freedom and democracy."

- "Firstly, historical Islam is not the problem. (...) Blaming Islam for the violence we see today is like blaming Christianity for the Crusades (...)"


If these excerpts do not demonstrate a burning desire to expose the true nature of Islam and thus combat jihadism, I honestly don't know what does...

Sigmund, Carl and Alfred said...

Anonymous-

You are right of course. We ought to slaughter all Muslims, wherever we find them, irrespective of their beliefs or actions. The only good Muslim is a dead Muslim. In fact, you could out-Nazi the Nazis and kill all billion plus Muslims! What a hero you'd be!

I'm sure Muslim reformists the world over would be in complete agreement with you. Irshad Manji, Nonie Darwish, et al, are no doubt deserving of nothing less than a knife run across their throats. I have no doubt you would take much delight in doing the job yourself.

Of course, I know that would not sate you- so might I suggest you identify every Muslim old age home and primary school. I have no doubt you will relish the responsibility and when the time comes, I'm sure you'll execute your responsibilities, with no qualms.

Now pay attention you idiot, because clearly, you don't get it.

Neither the Baron, or anyone else on his 'calendar' wish a for a wholesale slaughter of Muslims. There are two things we all want and are willing to fight for.

We will fight tyranny that might be imposed on us with all our might. We will defend those things that are dear to us and we will defend those share our values, irrespective of their race, religion or creed (a notion obviously unfamiliar to you).

While you happily go about cutting the throats of the children of that Iraq that threw himself on an explosive to save the lives of some Americans (something he certainly was under no obligation to do), the rest of us will give thanks and pray for his soul and his family. We will pray and hope that his selfless action will inspire others. We are grateful to the thousands of translators and civilian workers that are there, working with us and grateful for our efforts.

While you no doubt would be delighted to slit their throats and the throats of the children they have such hopes for too, not everyone shares your affinity for Nazi style genocide.

Perhaps when you are done butchering Arabs and Muslim, you can start on slaughtering the Chinese. After all, they have sent us tainted seafood, toys and toothpaste.

I for one will see the real character of the Chinese in the man that faced the tank in Tienamin Square. I will the crimes and corruption with tooth and nail and will never cease demanding that the Chinese live up to their obligations.

In the end, you are a coward and nothing but a coward. You didn't have the stones to address me directly (given the stupidity of your position and remarks, that might have been the smartest decision you have made in a while) and interestingly, you not only criticize me, but you infer that everyone else on the list, including the Baron, shares your beast-like opinions and ideologies and penchant to commit mass murder.

I will fight Islamism (and do, regularly) with the kind of insight and nuance that escapes your sorry Nazi ass. You aren't happy I don't see things your way?

Tough shit, pipsqueak. Just be glad I don't see the world through your eyes.

What a ridiculous and pathetic rant from Sigmund, Carl and Alfred! I'm shocked to see how much drivel he's managed to produce in such a short amount of time. Perhaps he should have taken the time to read his own comment before he posted it - he just might have discovered that the only thing he's adressing is straw men.

Sigmund, Carl and Alfred said...

In other words, you can't come up with a cogent response. What EXACTLY did I say that you find so offensive- or is being exposed for the bigot (and idiot) you are, enough to set you off?

Are you offended by Pipes, Horowitz, at al, as well? They also share similar sensibilities.

You don't want to engage me- you aren't that well equipped and you aren't that bright.

There is no need to embarrass yourself.

It should be obvious, but I'll point it out anyway - if I were to respond to straw man arguments, that would involve defending positions I haven't stated.

Sigmund, Carl and Alfred said...

OK, let me know when you actually answer the question.

The quotes you extracted from my post (the ones that offended your bigoted beliefs) are similar in thought and idea too many others.

To that end, I have a list of links and articles from Pipes, Horowitz and others that you are sure to find as equally offensive as mine.

I'm sure they will regard you as credible as I do.

Again, what exactly in the post you initially referred to do you find intolerable? Or does your bigotry masquerade any original and cogent thought?

Based on your responses, I'd go with the latter.

Anonymous said...

what exactly in the post you initially referred to do you find intolerable?

The problem with Sigmund, Carl and Alfred's writings, of which the quotes above are examples, is his tendency to on the one hand unduly give Islam credit for religious tolerance and scientific developments while on the other hand absolve it of its actual responsibilities for the consequences of its evil and dysfunctional nature, the blame instead being shifted to "Arab culture" or "dysfunctional leaders" who have somehow supposedly destroyed Islam and put a dysfunctional and evil ideology in its place.

However, since Islam per se has not in fact contributed to religious tolerance or scientific developments (one might argue that Muslims have, though that would not be to Islam's credit, as Islam is not what Muslims do), combined with the fact that Islam has not at all been destroyed or hijacked, but only put into practice, Sigmund, Carl and Alfred manages to portray an evil and dysfunctional ideology as a basically good religion hijacked by evil. This kind of Islam apologism is counterproductive from a counter-jihad perspective, as Sigmund, Carl and Alfred is not only defending the enemy, he is praising the enemy!

To that end, I have a list of links and articles from Pipes, Horowitz and others that you are sure to find as equally offensive as mine.

I am fully aware of the fact that Sigmund, Carl and Alfred is not alone in being an Islam apologist. In fact, Daniel Pipes, nonwithstanding his other achievements, is actually a good example of another Islam apologist. He must be notorious by now for his nonsensical mantra that "radical Islam is the problem, but moderate Islam is the solution" - nonsensical because "radical Islam" is the same as "Islam" and "moderate Islam" is an oxymoron, as a moderate version of Islam cannot exist.

Pipes is also among those who, like most Islam apologists seem to do when pressed, reduce "Islam" to a mere label without inherent meaning as he claims that Islam can be whatever Muslims wish to make of it.

For a more in-depth look at Daniel Pipes and his Islam apologism, I recommend the article The Search for Moderate Islam by Lawrence Auster (and Auster's other writings about Pipes may also be of interest).

With that, I have to leave this debate due to time constrains (yes, really), however I am confident that Sigmund, Carl and Alfred is more than capable of finding a straw man to argue with in my place.

Sigmund, Carl and Alfred said...

Breathtaking stupidity, in asserting there are no moderate Muslims (and thus we need to enslave or kill them all).

There is no need to comment on your drivel - I happily allow you the last word, for all to see.

Breathtaking stupidity, in asserting there are no moderate Muslims (and thus we need to enslave or kill them all).

Even this time round, Sigmund, Carl and Alfred managed to find a straw man to attack (I guess that too can be considered some kind of talent...).

Of course, I didn't assert that there are no moderate Muslims. I did say that there is no moderate Islam, but that is not the same, and regardless, enslaving or killing all Muslims is not a necessary consequence of either position.

Obviously, Sigmund, Carl and Alfred cannot allow himself to "comment on [my] drivel" without exposing himself even further as the Islam apologist he is. I can certainly understand why he would be reluctant to do so.

Over and out.

Sigmund, Carl and Alfred said...

Yeah, we're all wrong and you are right.

What do Pipes, Horowitz, Melanie Phillips, Spenser et al, know?

Good thing you're here to straighten us all out!

Mark Gordon said...

I've just returned from a summer blogging hiatus to find that the Gates of Vienna blog has added my blog, Suicide of the West, to its list of principal "Counterjihad" websites. Thank you, and please know of my continued esteem for you. Gates of Vienna has it exactly right, and at Suicide of the West we consider the Baron and the lovely Dymphna to be our inspirations in fending off Muslim encroachments upon our civilization.
