The problem with this satire is that it isn’t satire at all in the Muslim world. This is the kind of rhetoric you can see at Muslim websites and Youtube on a daily basis from places like Gaza, Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, oh, heck, everywhere. Enjoy!
Insurgents accidentally set off their own car bomb Monday at a training camp in an orchard in a Sunni area north of Baghdad, leaving 21 dead and some two dozen arrested, Iraqi officials said.
National Post(h/t SusanK & everyone else) The militants were attending a suicide bombing training class when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives.
Authorities found seven car bombs — all without plates — several explosive belts and roadside bombs after searching two houses and a garage in the dense area, offering a rare glimpse into the workings of militants behind a resurgence in violence in the country. Bomb experts began working immediately to defuse the explosives.
Security forces rushed to the area after hearing the explosion and arrested 22 men trying to flee the area, including several who had been wounded. Car bombs are among the deadliest weapons used by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an extremist Sunni group that recently broke with al-Qaeda.
A police officer said the militants were attending a lesson on making car bombs and explosive belts when a glitch set off one of the devices.
The competition heats up. It’s a hot contest as Daniel Greenfield (Sultan Knish) and Douglas Murray join Bare Naked Islam in vying for the honor of being named the ‘leading Islamophobe’ for 2014.
Frontpage Magazine by Daniel Greenfield (h/t The Opinionator) If you’ve ever wanted to vote for me in an election against Obama, here’s your chance. After being featured as an official one-man hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (the richest poverty group ever), this latest honor was inevitable.
Still the competition here is pretty stiff. There’s Obama, but he’s a pushover. But there’s also Dick Cheney, Stephen Harper, Daniel Pipes and Bare Naked Islam. And that’s just in the US category.
Globally, I’m up against General Sisi, Francois Hollande (for pushing Al Qaeda out of Mali), Aung San Suu Kyi, Geert Wilders and the Bahrain monarchy.
Sure, some of them are Muslims, but the Islamophobe of the Year Awards is dedicated to making the term Islamophobe even more meaningless by using it to refer to Muslims that Islamists dislike, including, “Raheem Kasaam (Student Rights), for demonising Muslims on issue of gender segregation.”
Secondly, I have always desired the award because the term ‘Islamophobia’ itself is so fantastical and ridiculous. Winning an award with it in the title would be like waking up to discover I had been given a prize by the Queen of Wonderland.
And thirdly – perhaps indeed the main impetus – is that this award is given by the ‘Islamic Human Rights Commission’ (IHRC). This hilariously misnamed body has been a force behind many key human rights advances of recent years, such as the annual ‘Al-Quds day march’ where Hezbollah supporters and others march through the centre of London calling for the destruction of the Jewish state.
Anyhow – I hope I do win. As a Khomeinist organisation the IHRC may wish to celebrate by hanging me from a crane, as is customary in Iran. As it is, I am content with my nomination and can only keep my fingers crossed that I make their cut.
If I don’t beat Obama this year, there’s always next year.

Well, Duh…that would have to mean that Muslims are a race. Since they aren’t, it isn’t.
Al-JazeeraThe just-released cover of the UK’s The Spectatormagazine is being called racist by many on Twitter. The January 25 edition of the magazine, which prides itselfon an undiminished “taste for controversy”, features two caricatures, presumably meant to represent Iran and Saudi Arabia, holding a sword and gun to each other’s throats. The illustration promotes anarticleby Douglas Murray entitled, “Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the Middle East’s 30 year war: Why the Sunni-Shia conflict is getting closer to the surface.”
Councillor Chris Joannides has been suspended by the Conservative party pending investigation by the national decision board over what some are calling ‘anti-Islamic’ Facebook taunts.
Enfield Independent An Enfield Borough Council’s Tory group withdrew the whip from the Grange Ward representative in February 2013 for alleged anti-Islamic comments posted on his Facebook page (photo below).
By a picture of a woman and child dressed in burqas with a black binbag either side of them, he is said to have written: “I saw her standing there and I told her she had three beautiful children. She didn’t have to get all p***** off and threaten me … an honest mistake.”
Well, I’ll have to throw my vote to Egypt’s General Sisi for taking down the Muslim Brotherhood, jailing its leaders, killing a lot of its violent followers, and designating it a terrorist organization, while thumbing his nose at Barack Hussein Obama.

Mohammed makes it fun for little jihadis to learn a variety of prayers, calls to war, and popular death threats including ‘Death to Infidels,’ ‘Death to America,’ ‘From the River to the Sea,’ and ‘Allahu Akbar.’ Mo’s voice is intentionally annoying but if you try to shut him up, he might blow up in your face.
Mohammed is perfect for junior terrorists-in-training, ages 3 to 8. Two AA-size batteries and explosives not included. 10% of each sale goes to charity for Hamas. WARNING: May attack other innocent stuffed animals unexpectedly in the name of Islam.
