Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/17/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/17/2012The German anti-Islamization group Pro-Deutschland is planning to display Mohammed cartoons during demonstrations in Berlin this weekend. Three mosques filed a petition to stop the showing of the Motoons, but a judge ruled that the drawings did not violate laws against slander or incitement. So the demo will go on as planned, presumably featuring Ol’ Turban Bomb.

In other news, an Islamic group in the Barrhaven neighborhood of Ottawa has requested federal protection after vandals torched a sign and scrawled racist slogans at the site of a planned mosque.

"When I married V.  S. Naipaul and moved to England in 1996, I thought I had left the horror behind.

"Instead, I have found the horror I fled has followed me here. It is all around, eroding the very core of everything Britain believes in.

" My message to those who promote these entrenched ghetto ideas is this: go home if you want to practise your form of Islam. There is no place for it here.
