Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/26/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/26/2012The creator of a well-known British cartoon character made a little mistake when he went through security before boarding a flight at Gatwick Airport. As a response to seeing a fully-veiled Muslima being passed through screening without showing her face, he joked to a nearby security officer, “If I was wearing this scarf over my face, I wonder what would happen.”

Well, you can imagine what happened next. He was confronted by officials and the police were called and he was detained for an hour for questioning, thoroughly ruining his trip.

"I am not here to sign any contracts, says Abdiweli Mohamed Ali."

All contracts, treaties, and cease-fires are merely hudna.


"What is being touted as a 'cease-fire' is something called a 'hudna.' A hudna [also known as a hudibiyya or khudaibiya] is a tactical cease-fire that allows the Arabs to rebuild their terrorist infrastructure in order to be more effective when the "cease-fire" is called off." -- "Cease-fire?" by Shira A. Drissman"
