Furious

By ATWadmin On December 6th, 2006 at 11:15 am

Im too cross to get a post up on Channel 4s decision to platform fundamentalism at Christmas without offering up a challenging viewpoint. This isn’t furthering the debate on the veil at all. I look forward to her covering off the injustices suffered by many women forced to wear this garb either in the UK or elsewhere – whose viewpoint is never heard. Perhaps she could extend good wishes to Nazanin whose retrial is set for January. I somehow doubt this will happen. And I also doubt 2007s speech will give voice to some other extreme viewpoint in the name of improving community relations, perhaps the KKK or a BNP swastika bearing thug – who after all is entitled to feel ostracised by society for his or her viewpoints.  A debate is no doubt essential but this is the wrong way to go about it – this is neither a debate nor a reasonable approach to the issue. It is simply designed to aggravate an already sensitive issue. Of all the ways to go about furthering the debate they choose Christmas and a single extreme viewpoint to go unchallenged on air – which many people myself included will simply switch off. However, Jonz has put together some questions for Channel 4’s chief executive Andy Duncan.

1. Why do Channel 4 go out of their way not to offend ethnic minorities, specifically the Muslim community, when Channel 4 is happy to offend large swathes of the british public – on the traditional Christian holy day of christmas – with a muslim women in a full Islamic veil?

2. Will Channel 4 be inviting beer swigging naked women to introduce Ramadan or the Eid festival next year? Or is it just open season on the british public?

3. As a non-muslim I find the veil offensive, so why aren’t my views taken into account? Does political correctness only extend to minorities?

4. Why has Channel 4 never screened Submission by Theo Van Gogh? Why has Channel 4 never screened the satirical mohammed cartoons?

5. Can Channel 4 not see that is is fueling extremism, resentment and
antagonism against Britiains Muslim community by deciding to air the voice of an Islamic extremist – I use the word extemist since only 1% of Britains muslim population wear the full face veil?

Gordon ‘I like to publicise my son’s illness in order to show my caring credentials’ Brown will present what is likely to be his final pre-Budget report today before his coronation as the next socialist leader of the country his party has done more to destroy than any other in modern times.  It will assume the traditional characteristics of Leftist ideology: throw money at the public services, because it gives the impression the panacea lies in such a strategy.  Gordy will claim a first-class education service will enable this country to meet challenges from countries such as India and China.  It mustn’t have occurred to him that to have a ballooning public sector and rising unemployment triggered by his party’s obscene weakness on mass immigration is really cutting our competitive edge against our European neighbours.

Carefully interwoven into the ‘spend, spend, spend’ speech will be a series of ‘green taxes’ to make us all that bit poorer.  This Chancellor, not unaccustomed to using flowery language to disguise the fundamental nonsense of his monetary strategies, has come out with his ‘endogenous growth theory’ – a term which translates as………’piffle’.  Who knows what Gordon will come out with to illustrate the doom-laden destination he had in mind for this country as PM.  Will we see terms such as ‘Cashbook nonappraisal had ostensive obesity spotlessly auric overleather staid and grasshop: augh. Electrofuse: recash before cartaceous: azoblack.’?

Alas, for Gordon, people are much more in-tune with the true meaning of ‘green taxes’ than they were with the ‘endogenous’ bullshit.  The former’s crude translation is ‘let’s rip the public off yet again because, as an unapologetic socialist, the 80+ stealth taxes I have already imposed don’t make the middle-classes sufficiently potless enough to satiate the petty class warfare envies I have been nurtured on since the breast.’

We pay some of the highest fuel duties and road fund levies anywhere in the developed world.  Only 1/7 of our road tax is ploughed directly back into public transport and the roads system.  The rest goes straight to the Treasury so that Gordy can waste it on pointless public spending endeavours.  In the end we have to pay for his profligacy by shelling out even more of our money.  You know what?  I feel sorry for Gordon Brown’s son for two reasons.  Not only does he suffer with an appallingly debilitating illness, he also has a father who enjoys making millions of people more miserable through his unadulterated larceny.

CHOOSING LOSING….

795151-578415-thumbnail.jpgTalk about a broken Gate. The US Defence Secretary nominee Robert Gates has laid out his credentials, as some of us forecast he would, when he told a Senate committee that the US is not winning the war in Iraq.

Asked by the next chairman of the panel, Democratic Senator Carl Levin, if he believed the US was winning, Mr Gates replied: "No, Sir."

(He later said he believed the US was neither winning nor losing, "at this point". Mr Decisive!)

795151-578411-thumbnail.jpgWell, that’s sending a message all right. I bet the US troops in the field will just love to hear Bobby-boy’s rallying cry – explaining that their sacrifice is in vain. If you are not winning, you are losing. It’s that simple and that brutal.

I dare say every Jihadist and Saddamite scumbag in downtown Baghdad will be jumping with joy as they actually watch the Great Satan’s new talking head admit de facto defeat.

But Gates wasn’t finished. He went on to say that  the US should attack Iran only as a last resort and he would not support military action against Boy Bashar in Syria. Tough talk.

Let’s review. Iran has announced its nuclear intentions and spelt out that Israel will be wiped off the map. Gates obviously believes we have to wait until the second Holocaust takes place before the US steps in. I imagine Hamas and co will have been taking notes.

Meanwhile Iran’s stool pigeon, Syria, is formenting as much trouble as possible in Iraq. But Bob’s got a plan. Yip – he wants "to talk" to them all. That’s the diplomatic way of saying sueing for surrender terms.

Replacing a man like Rumsfeld with a mouse like Gates is tragic, and Bush can be seen to have destroyed his very own doctrine. It’s a tough world we live in folks, and the barbarians will soon be at the gates.

JIHAD RAGE BOY FOR NUMBER ONE?

irb_new_album_1.jpgIt’s impossible to avoid the Festive season as the hit records from years gone fill the air, but if you click here you can here Islamic Rage Boy’s seasonal single "Infidels" – guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of a wannabe Jihadists! It’s catchy…..and I hear it’s gonna be all the rage…..!

TRADING IN TERRORISTS….

By ATWadmin On December 6th, 2006 at 8:47 am

mbarghouti.jpgDid you read that a senior member of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s cabinet has proposed the release of convicted murderer, terror group founder and alleged planner of the second Palestinian intifada Marwan Barghouti in exchange for the freedom of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit?

Gideon Ezra, from Olmert’s Kadima party, said Barghouti’s release could help strengthen Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party.

Just remember that Barghouti, a member of the Palestinian parliament, is the founder of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a terror group that has carried out scores of suicide bombings, deadly shooting attacks and hundreds of rocket firings at Jewish communities near Gaza. He is serving multiple life terms for his role in killing five Israeli civilians. Barghouti has boasted of being one of the main architects of the Palestinian intifada that began in 2000, killing 993 Israelis and 3,777 Palestinians. Nice guy. eh?

 

The only consequences of using the release of a mass murderer as a bargaining chip to obtain the release of a kidnapped soldier is that there will be more kidnapped soldiers and more Fatah directed murders. Gideon is a fool and manifests the leftwing weakness of the Olmert regime.

THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY….

By ATWadmin On December 6th, 2006 at 8:38 am

I see that the United States has learned that Al Queda provides training, weaponry and funding to the ruling Islamic movement in Somalia. In 2006, Islamic fighters, known as the Union of Islamic Courts, took over Mogadishu and much of the country. Got that – Ossie’s gang are an active partner in the Somalia Government. I wonder how long before some "realists" in Washington suggest that we sit down and talk to the Islamic Courts?

THE LADY IN THE MOSQUE, SORRY, MASK!

By ATWadmin On December 6th, 2006 at 8:04 am

khadijaxmas512_228x323.jpgDid you see that Channel 4  is planning to drum up a little controversy for itself over the wearing of the veil – by featuring a Muslim woman in full niqab giving the broadcaster’s alternative Christmas message.

The woman, today named only as Khadija and said to be a lecturer in Islamic studies, will go head-to-head with the Queen when she gives her annual speech to the nation on 25 December.  But hey – aren’t those Burqa Babe glasses a tad uber designer, a little too infidel, designed to inflame male hearts? Now, can I be the first to congratulate Channel 4 – they have a proud tradition of having freaks present the "alternative Christmas Message" and our Islamic Studies lecturer is just one more in this (dis)honourable tradition. I won’t be watching.

LOST IN QUANGOLAND!

By ATWadmin On December 5th, 2006 at 3:35 pm

Wonder what you make of the fact that Northern Ireland Children’s commissioner’s budget is £1.9m per year, while his salary is £75,000. In comparison, for larger populations, the annual budget of the Welsh commissioner’s office is £1.2m and his salary is £70,000-75,000. The Scottish commissioner has a budget of £1.5m this year and £1.2m thereafter. She earns £72,000. The English commissioner’s budget is £3m. He earns £130,000. While the NI children’s commissioner spends almost 2 million a year producing trite nonsense like this and keeping the quango-class in jobs the NI children’s hospice receives no statutory funding. It is indeed a National Disgrace. I loath the quango-class which infest Northern Ireland, these empty-heads populate all the various Government-appointed boards and they contribute little of any value.

Hat-tip to the eagle-eyed ATW reader for the story!

AHMADINEJIAD TOO LIBERAL!

By ATWadmin On December 5th, 2006 at 2:53 pm

Girls20Aloud20web.jpgYou have to laugh. Western Resistance points out that Iran’s Thug-in-chief Ahmadinejad has been accused of being a dangerous liberal reformist!!! The Man who longs for the return of the 12th Imam, who wants to wipe Israel off the map, and who does not believe the first Holocaust happened, has been condemned for attending the lavish opening ceremony of the Asian games in Qatar, a sporting competition involving 13,000 athletes from 39 countries. The ceremony featured Indian and Egyptian dancers and female vocalists. Many were not wearing veils.

Women are forbidden to sing and dance before a male audience under Iran’s Islamic legal code.

So, that means that infidel babes Girls Aloud can forget all about that lucrative Iranian tour even if they were thinking about wearing veils!
