Gates of Vienna News Feed 12/7/2011

Gates of Vienna News Feed 12/7/2011An Australian Shi’ite named Mansor Almaribe, who was arrested last month while making the hajj in Saudi Arabia, has been sentenced to 500 lashes after being found guilty of blasphemy. It is not clear exactly what blasphemous action led to his conviction.

In other news, someone in the crowd in front of La Scala Opera House in Milan attempted to egg Italian prime minister Mario Monti, but succeeded only in hitting the premier’s car.

OT (this may be a good thread for OT comments?):

Is anyone of you behind this blog also behind the Youtube channel TheGatesOfViennaII?

magnus --

Yes, this is the right place for off-topic items.

And no, I don't have anything to do with that YouTube channel (or any other channel, either -- I leave video to Vlad the Video Man). I'm not familiar with it.

The book, "Satan's Trinity: Hitler, Stalin & Muhammad, is available at http://satanstrinity.wordpress.com/ For the first time in history "HSM" appear together on a book cover. The idea behind the book is to make headway against the ludicrous idea that Muhammad should be conjoined with any religious leader/founder. This book uses the specific names of Hitler and Stalin to efficiently identify the nature of Muhammad and by extension Islam. It compares the personalities and approach of each man to such categories as; war, peace, sex, torture, slavery, women, their respective childhoods and deaths, the critical affects of geography and timing, each man’s anti-social and narcissistic personalities. http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=CHMartel&aq=f
