Goal #1: Never, Ever Offend a Muslim

Islam means “submission”.

HumiliationImagine you’re a Muslim, a soldier of the Prophet, a member of the Legions of Mohammed. What do you expect from a defeated enemy to let you know that he has fully submitted? Ritual self-abasement, servile behavior, slavish deference, a display of humiliation, and so on, right?

And what would you think of an enemy who does all of the above without even first putting up a fight?

Take a look at this sad news. For you Ian Rankin fans, this story is on John Rebus’ patch:

NHS staff told to eat away from desks for Ramadan

Hospital staff in the Lothians have been told not to eat at their desks to avoid offending Muslim colleagues during Ramadan.

NHS Lothian has advised doctors and other health workers not to have working lunches during the 30-day fast, which begins next month.

The health service’s Equality and Diversity Officer sent an e-mail to all senior managers, giving guidance on religious tolerance.

This includes ensuring Muslim staff are given breaks to pray, and time off to celebrate Eid at the end of Ramadan.

It is understood they also advised hospital managers to move food trolleys away from areas where Muslims work.
- - - - - - - - -
How many more ritual humiliations must we undergo before Muslims are no longer offended? What else must we give up in order to display our full submission?

  • The unveiled female face offends Muslims.
  • The sale and consumption of alcohol offends Muslims.
  • The keeping of dogs as pets offends Muslims.
  • The consumption of pork products offends Mulsims.

The list goes on and on.

What’s next?

Also see Cranmer on the same topic.

Hat tip: BES.

I am tired of this shit.

The real enemy are not muslims.

They just do what they were allowedto do.

The real enemy is this scum who licks their asses

This is clearly an accident. Some well meaning idiot, who have sensed where everything is going is getting ahead of himself.

*"Bill Aitken, Scottish Conservative justice spokesman, was reported as saying: "Frankly, this advice, well meaning as it may be, is total nonsense.

"This is the sort of thing that can stir up resentments rather than result in good relations."*

Bill Aitken here, is clearly the the real spokesman for the architects of the mixing of populations. And he is irritated that the whistle is blown so soon

I am Conservative. Bill Aitken is not even close.

I noticed from the article that there was one individual trying to make everyone else under his area of authority submit to a religion representing less than one percent of the Scottish population. Now multiply this one person by thousands/millions of other like-minded individuals and you start to see how the West is gradually giving in without a fight. These dhimmis do this stuff in small ways. A little give here, a little there....

Most people are too busy living their lives to notice or bother with the stupid rule/law, etc. And if a person does object they are subjected to ridicule or, even worse, diversity training.

Most of the people in the position to make these rules, government, are liberals. It is relatively easy for them to force their way on their area. Once the rule is in effect or proposed it is much harder to stop by the regular person. This is how you get creeping dhimmification. Only rarely does this process get national/international exposure such as this Scottich proposal, which allows it to be exposed and stopped.

The problem is, you can do all that stuff, and they'll still cut your head off if the order comes down.

Jews and Christians also fast, usually as a means to focus their attention on God. To Christians it would be considered hypocritical to involve innocent bystanders in ones decision to fast. The model provided by Jesus is found in Matthew 6:16 -- "And when you fast, do not put on a sad face as the hypocrites do. They go around with a hungry look so that everyone will see that they are fasting. Remember this! They have already been paid in full. When you go without food, wash your face and comb you hair, so that others cannot know that you are fasting -- only your Father, who is unseen, will know. And your Father, who sees what you do in private, will reward you."

What I hate most about this kind of thing is the dishonesty and abuse of language - the way they'll call it one thing, when in fact it's the very opposite. Tolerance is when people coexist peacefully DESPITE their differences, not when one group is forced to act differently so as not to "offend" another - that's Intolerance.

falcon_01 said...

I'd be throwing a party with LOTS of food. Heck, set up a buffet!

Chrisla said it best though... Amen! This sort of thing is exactly why Christianity and Islam can NEVER mesh. The practicing muslims have no humility to non-muslim humans- or even a golden rule! To them we are all guilty and deserve whatever cruelty they dish out upon us.

spackle said...

What it takes is a group of people with enough balls to say no. To sit at their desks and eat pork sandwiches. We have to stop acting like sheep in the face of lunacy.

Yorkshireminer said...

When I was reading the above article, it reminded me of a book that was banned her in the Nederlands about 10 years ago for offending Muslim sensitivity. The book is called

The Downfall of the Netherlands
Land of the Naive Fools
Mohammed Rasoel

he was fined 2,000 guilders about 1000 euros

the except that is printed below is somewhat chilling. If anyone would like to read the whole book you can find it here.


In fifty years the Netherlands is an Islamic nation." In a certain stage there will be more incidents like the affair with Rushdie, and the Muslims will reconsider their right to be offended by the libertarian, sinful way of life of the Dutch, a way of life that they consider to go straight against their Islamic way of life. They will state that a Muslim woman can't walk through a street with sex shops, dog turds, girls with short skirts, or that the sight of that is a violation of their Ramadan. The government, who'll at that moment be more concerned with the oil price and the course of the dollar, besides finding it more important that the Dutchmen with a ton on their bank account can hang in front of the TV, than that they can walk the street as free citizens, will go for a compromise to avoid complications, and come up with an emergency law that forbids the display of pornography in shopping windows and the walking of dogs, but not quite yet the wearing of short skirts during the Ramadan.

A handful of Dutchmen, cursed with a greater respect for their own existence and a stronger will to
survive, will object to the changes that are taking place and protest, to be directly oppressed by the
majority, turned into outcasts, and branded as racists. The Muslims will count on the guaranteed
reaction of the Dutch, by making optimal use of it, and strike the Dutch like leprosy and take away
their hand finger by finger. After the passing of the century, somewhere around 2010, the bombs will be
done ticking and ready for the big bang. But on the other side underground movements and gangs will
have been created because of the repressive and frustrating situation. During this stage most Dutchmen
will realize what a grievous mistake it was to be friendly to the wrong persons.

But since the international image and the public decency still have the highest priority, the Dutch will
continue to ignore their problems, or wipe them under the carpet, lacking the guts to face them. Instead
they'll keep the dialogged going, in the hope to still convert the Muslims, and one will blame the other
for not trying hard enough, or for not accepting the Muslims enough. And too busy unpacking their
mental baggage in search of the last possible justification, they won't see the smile on the faces of the
Muslims who watch the overly diligent oddballs. While all this is taking place in the Netherlands, the
Muslim leaders elsewhere, who kept themselves informed of the developments, concentrate on plans
for the long term.

This is total balls. Last year I sat in the same cubicle with a Pakistani coder while *HE* was fasting and ate bacon cheeseburgers every day, and his only comment was to look wanly over at me and tell me how good it smelled...

Then again, Waqar isn't a sh*thead.

Rivenshield said...

...I guess I should also specify that Waqar wasn't trying to give me some sort of veiled hint. He was just plain hungry. I rememebr sitting theer and munching away and arguing with him over whether or not the fast should include not drinking any water (which he doesn't). I told him I fasted every now and again just to clean my gut out, but I always drank lots of water to keep myself hydrated, and he was laughing and going "Oh no, oh know I can't do that.."

He's about as devout as you get. But he's a regular guy. These guys in Scotland are basically brown white trash, and they'll get away with whatever they're allowed to get away with. I guess they'll want to clear the halls so they can kneel and pray next.

Rivenshield said...

...and by the way *again*, the way this blog & the commentary talk about 'Muslims' is starting to piss me off a little. We're talking about the Muslim KKK and their brown-white-trash supporters. Not Muslims in general. That ain't PC. It's the simple freaking truth.

White trash don't outnumber decent country folk. They're just so disgusting and rotten and wild-eyed obnoxious and you'd like to kill 'em so much they *seem* like they do. We're looking at a similar dynamic here.

Keep a freaking GRIP, people.

The muslims are not numerically dominant yet anywhere in the Western world. It the idiot Left that is doing their evil work for them that we need to condemn most of all, and they are, for the most part Western idiots. They need to be locked up, re-educated, whatever it takes to straighten them out, and if they cannot be straightened out then they simply need to be rendered harmless by some very effective and permanent means. There are a lot of these crazy people, and most of them are fairly well educated, but they don't understand very much about the way the world really works. A large shot of broad scale reality would be a wonderful thing for most of them. There is still hope, but we must work on our own people; they are the major problem right now.

Unknown said...

Rivenshield - I have no doubt the vast majority of muslims in this world just want to live their lives in peace. However, I also see what group is causing 90+% of all the trouble throughout the world. The "nice" muslims are doing absolutely nothing to stop the bad apples, so I can only think that these nice muslims aren't, deep down, in conflict with the radicals. Given a choice between our culture and theirs and I think they would be quite happy to see sharia become the way of life everywhere.

ziontruth said...

The idea that the troublemakers in any group are always, always, always the minority is part of my upbringing. However, when the stage in my life came that I asked myself whether it was true, I realized no proof of it has ever been given.

Ultimately, it all boils down to the worldview of historical materialism, which says that humans everywhere and all times compromise on ideology in favor of immediate pragmatic benefits. I reject historical materialism, and adhere to historical idealism instead, having seen too many examples of people taking their ideologies seriously, so seriously as to devalue their very lives.

I don't believe the jihadists are a minority. The active ones may be very few, but their supporting base is, judging by the evidence, comprised of the majority of Muslims worldwide.

History Snark said...


It all comes back to what the Baron said way back when, in the first GoV post I ever read- the title of which was something along the lines of "Can we rely on moderate Muslims?"

Most of the muslims I've met have been fairly decent. Some seem like jackasses, but so what? However, are they really that casual, or are they just sitting back and waiting for their radical brethren to force a change in the rules?

As for these idiotic rules, my first thought was "do they make concessions like this to Christians? EVER?" My second thought was just that it's probably some dumbass in Scotland that really truly thinks this is a Good Idea, since he/she really doesn't want to offend Muslims, and believes that, unlike the Pakistani mentioned in the comments, they would be bothered.

It's simple stupidity based on good intentions. Of course, we know which road is lined with those, right?

Profitsbeard said...

Here's what I submit:

Pass the pizza, burgers, fries, nachos, beer-battered shrimp and buffalo wings!

I don't gave a Ramalamadingdong!

(Besides, Muslims gorge themselves as soon as dusk falls, which makes a farce of the meaning of their daytime "fast".)

Never follow a pedophile's advice.

Especially not a hungry one.

Subvet said...

IMHO a lot more folks are starting to wake up and smell what's being shoveled. Idiotic acts like this one actually work against the followers of the pedophile prophet by causing your average Joe to start wondering what the heck is really going on.

Now pass the pork rinds, please.

Unknown said...

For what really matters I dont believe in such a thing as moderate muslims.
They only will be moderate until they have to chose a side and then they will side with other muslims, as extremists as they can be.

djproject said...

hmmm, offending a muslim ...

talk about true and authentic judeatic/israelite and orthodox (especially *big* o since we have ikons galore) theology and see how far off they really are. =D

(btw, you and i need to do a phone interview about the theological side of it all. or if i have enough courage and good health, me coming down.)
