Oh Christ

Posted by Exile on July 30, 2009

Jesus.. Well it had to happen. What with virgins appearing all over the place, the big fella had to put in an appearance sooner or later.

Remember the virgin on the baking tray? Well, here’s Jesus on something similar. Or so I’m told. Personally I think it’s Mohammed, but since there’s been no muslim outcry yet, I am going with the original claim. After all, we don’t want another motoon crisis on our hands, do we?

Mind you, it could just be a greasy spot, but what do I know?

I spotted this little video clip on something called “Zeitgeist” and snatched this screen dump for posterity.

Saving Face – Muslim Style

Posted by Exile on July 23, 2009

I found this in the Timesonline and I wondered; Are these really the kind of people we want in our society?

A young Muslim woman has been warned by police that her life is in danger after a male friend lost his tongue in an alleged assault using acid in an apparent “honour attack”.

The Danish Asian man is in a serious but stable condition in hospital after an incident in Leytonstone, East London, three weeks ago. Sulphuric acid is said to have been thrown in his face and he was stabbed twice in the back.

The 24-year-old, being treated in a specialist unit in Essex, is now blind, his tongue has been destroyed and he suffered 90 per cent burns.

The woman, who claims the relationship is an innocent friendship, and the man live in the Asian community of East London, where their relationship is said to have upset her family for bringing dishonour on them.

Be careful who you choose as your friends. Wouldn’t want to upset any of these animals would you?

The police have apparently been busy though:

Two men, aged 19 and 25, are due to appear before Waltham Forest Magistrates today, charged with the attempted murder of the 24-year-old man on July 2, 2009. Both men are said to be related to the woman, one is understood to be her brother.

Five men have been arrested and bailed “pending further inquiries” by police.

At the time of the attack a police source said: “It looks like this gang set out to deliberately target this man. They were dressed in masks and gloves so none of the acid would get on them.”

I feel culturally enriched.

Calling ‘em Like I Read ‘em

Posted by Exile on July 13, 2009

A quick look at the headlines and my spontaneous reaction to them…

North Korea’s supreme leader, Kim Jong Il, is suffering from life-threatening cancer of the pancreas.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bloke.

Chinese police today shot dead two Uighur men and wounded a third in the first official report of the use of firearms to quell unrest in the western, mainly Muslim region where a riot last week left 184 people dead.

Yay. Go chinks.

Britain became the first country to halt arms exports to Israel in response to its Gaza offensive.

Britain’s government should be ashamed of itself.

El Niño, the warming of the Pacific Ocean that creates chaos in global weather patterns, is on its way back, threatening droughts, floods, crop failure and social unrest.

Personally, I’m looking forward to some good weather.

The sister of Michael Jackson has accused members of his entourage of effectively “murdering” the singer for his money.

Oh. What a shame. How sad. Never mind.

A 27-year-old Spanish man was gored to death by a bull at the traditional running of the bulls festival in Pamplona, northern Spain, on Friday, the first such fatality since 1995.

Go bulls! Serves the animal torturing bastard right.

Oh Look. Another Virgin.

Posted by Exile on July 10, 2009

It’s been over 2 years since I saw a report on the image of the virgin Mary showing up on a baking tin. It would appear that the phenomenon of virgin spotting, for the good of the Catholics among us, is still alive and well and has now spread (once again) to Ireland.

(Historical digression: The last time that Ireland experienced anything similar was during its last recession in 1985, when a “moving” statue drew tens of thousands to Ballinspittle, Co Cork.)

Now, back to the latest:

Limerick, of all places.
(You know Limerick, birthplace of the witty and often slightly risqué rhyme, consisting of five lines.)
And now home to a newly appeared virgin Mary in, of all places, a tree trunk.

She “appeared” after someone had cut down a willow tree. Instantly spotting the holy virgin mother, he dutifully fell to his knees and proclaimed it a true picture of “our blessed lady”. This sort of thing obviously stops all further tree clearance.

image In fact,  almost 2,000 people have signed a petition to prevent the stump’s removal and hundreds of worshippers have been gathering to recite decades of the rosary and light candles.

Remarkable. A few hundred years ago, anyone dancing and worshipping round a tree would have been burned at the stake by the catholic church for witchcraft. Times have changed.

The 2,000 faithful petitioners have little backing from their local priest though.

Father Willie Russell, the parish priest, said: “There’s nothing there, it’s just a tree. You can’t worship a tree. A tree is a tree. A person with imagination is a person with imagination.”

He said that there was no harm in people praying at the stump but added: “I don’t believe in idolatry, that would be the danger.”

Again, remarkable. Go into any catholic church and you will see idols all over the place. They are called statues of the virgin. Maybe this one just isn’t fancy enough for this particular priest.
Memories of Monty Python’s “Life of Brian” come back to me as I picture 2,000 good Irishmen pointing at this upstart priest and yelling, “Unbeliever!”.

Seamus Hogan, spokesman for the 2,000 pious petitioners, had this to say;

“People have been coming from Clare and Kerry to see this tree, which we believe shows a clear outline of Our Lady.”

…while the official response is a little more, how should I say, guarded?

Father Paul Finnerty, the spokesman for the Limerick Diocese, said: “The Church’s response to phenomena of this type is one of great scepticism. While we do not wish in any way to detract from devotion to Our Lady, we would also wish to avoid anything which might lead to superstition.”

Now that is truly awesome. The church wishing to “avoid anything which might lead to superstition”.

A bit of an oxymoron if ever I heard one.

The Wilders Effect.

Posted by Exile on July 7, 2009

One of the first lessons I learned as a young soldier, which was a long time ago I must admit, was that one should know one’s enemy. Learn what he does, how he thinks and how he acts. Having been subjected to a constant barrage of islamic atrocities over the last thirty years, starting with Arafat and his cronies, I think, at least, I know who my enemy is. In my attempts to learn his ways and manner of action I sometimes venture off to the strangest places to  read what they are saying about the world in general.

On my latest foray into the enemy camp, I found this heartening news concerning the Netherlands from the Muslim News, UK.

The Netherlands: Many Muslims want to leave due to Wilders

30-06-2009

Netherlands, (Dutch News):

The rise in support for anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders means many Dutch Muslims are considering emigrating, according to a poll for NCRV tv.

While 75% of Dutch Muslims said they still feel at home in the Netherlands, 57% say they feel less welcome, the poll shows, according to the Telegraaf. And 51% are thinking more often about leaving.

In addition, 75% feel they are judged more negatively since the rise of Wilders and four out of 10 say they are more often discriminated against.

Aw. Poor sods. Doesn’t that just make you feel awful awfully good about the future. I can’t help wondering about where the unwelcome muslims are planning on emigrating to, but hopefully, it won’t be another European country. Since we don’t know how the figures mentioned above were derived, one can only hope that they are accurate.
I couldn’t help noticing that 75% felt that they were “at home” and yet insistent that they are “judged more negatively since the rise of Wilders” and “ more often discriminated against.”

Amazing. The power of one. What we really need then, is a few more Geert Wilders.

The article ends with the usual muslim warning that we are all used to by now, although it hasn’t been discussed anywhere openly in the MSM:

According to Rotterdam city council executive Hamit Karakus:

“The rise of Wilders’ PVV party, which emerged as the biggest in Rotterdam after the European elections, means that a growing group of second and third generation immigrants do not feel welcome and a small but growing group are turning to radical Islam.”

In plain English:

“See, if you people keep demanding your country back, we’ll all go fundamental on you, and you know what that means..!”

In the meantime, I’m crossing my fingers for the Netherlands and cheering for Geert.
