Did you read that Muslim clerics at a leading seminary in India have asked people to refrain from using verses from the Koran as ringtones for their mobile phones, saying the practice was un-Islamic! 

Koran verses "are not meant for entertainment," said Mohammed Asumin Qazmi, an official at the Dar-ul Uloom seminary in the northern Indian town of Deoband. "Anyone who persists in using these should be ostracized from society." With Koran verses or calls to prayers are popular among Muslims in Uttar Pradesh, India’s largest state.

As Michelle Malkin pointedly asks, Muslim clerics vocal annoyance at the use of ringtones contrasts with their silence over those co-religionists who use cell phones to commit acts of terror.

Personally, I find most ringtones a proverbial pain in the ear.

My own mobile phone’s ring-tone is "Good Year for the Roses"  – anyone got a Koranic tone, or failing that, a moronic one? 

Spook Off, Gadd

By ATWadmin On November 22nd, 2006 at 11:34 am

The last time I took Gadd to task was her prediction that Catholics would triumph on constitutional preferences by virtue of their horniness.  Today she comes in for criticism for opposing the new regional headquarters of MI5 at Palace Barracks in County Down.  Like most insurrectionists, Gadd prefers an army of uniformed social workers masquerading as police, accountable to wives – with loaded agendas – of insurrectionist councillors and totally under the ministerial ambit of IRA apologists.

Sorry, Gadd, it ain’t gonna happen.  I don’t know how many times it has to be drilled home before the Oirish numbskulls understand, but Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom – a country facing an unprecedented terrorist threat from Islamic psychopaths.  The establishment of this building says far more about the commitment of the British State as a whole, as opposed to the ideological agenda of some in government, to protecting Northern Ireland as part of its domestic territory. 

We already know there is a significant radicalisation of Muslims occurring in the Irish Republic.  We also know there is the Common Travel Area, permitting all and sundry to cross the border with minimum security checks.  Who knows who could be using Northern Ireland as a back door to attack the rest of Britain.  How do we know IRA scumbags, temporarily desisting from mass murder, are not contracting their skills in a South Armagh ghetto to those who want to further the Islamist cause?

This is another reason why our Intelligence Service must never be accountable to insurrectionists in Ulster.  If the PSNI end up being supervised by Old Bailey Bomber Four Eyes it will be bad enough. However, when the security of the United Kingdom as a whole relies on the professional remit of British Intelligence, there is no way that service can be scrutinised by a person who may well act as a conduit to his Provo brethren, themselves involved in aiding and abetting Islamic militants, and be efficient.  We don’t have to ask the permission of Irish citizens on the UK mainland before we set up Intelligence; there is no reason why we should have to ask the same people who unfortunately live in Northern Ireland for permission to defend our country.

The shocking failure of our State Education system is once more manifest in the news today that "about one in ten schools" has been judged as "inadequate" in the past year.

Chief inspector of schools Christine Gilbert was publishing her first annual report on the state of education in England since taking over as head of Ofsted.

Now, a few questions for you;

Given that "about one in ten" equates to hundreds of schools, and that "inadequate" would appear to be indicative of a failure to meet standards, how many Head Teachers do you think will be disciplined, if not sacked for this abysmal performance?

Given that "about one in ten" schools equates to tens of thousands of children, how many young lives are being ruined by the failure of the State system?

Given that "about one in ten" schools are failing our children in 2005/2006, almost ten years into the NuLabour regime, doesn’t Government bear the ultimate responsibility for this failure?

fingergreen203.jpgSorry, but whilst I am a keen advocate the rule of law, I nonetheless find myself opposed to the idea of Police across England and Wales taking fingerprints while on patrol using mobile electronic devices. The portable gadgets – similar to a pocket PC and linked to a database of 6.5m prints -will enable officers to identify suspects within minutes.

But hang in a second. What right have the Police to stop us at random and take our fingerprints? Who believes the odd statistic being trotted out today to justify this that "60 per cent of drivers stopped do not give their true identity"? That seems most improbable to me. We must be very wary that policing powers are not allowed to escalate ever upwards – that way lies a Police State.

Bring Back the Noose

What is happening to this country?  You get the feeling of living in a society where crime, in all its dastardly forms, is out of control.  A few days ago in Cheadle, Cheshire, an eight-year-old boy suffering from cancer was held at gunpoint whilst his mother’s 4×4 was stolen from a petrol station forecourt.  This morning I read about the abduction and subsequent murder of a man from Bramley in Leeds, whose badly burnt corpse was found in an area of the city I know very well.  Evil seems to stalk our country like never before.  The other day a man was arrested in Huddersfield after being caught feeding a live cat to a pit-bull terrier.  Three horrific stories in what could be described as my local area.  What’s going on when you factor in the rest of the UK?

What this country needs, and has needed for a very long time, is a return to capital punishment and deterrents such as birching, the cat or the rotan.  Will we see introduction in the near future?  No way.  Why?  Because this government, unable to help those at the bottom end of the economic scale by the economic macromanagement they practiced in the past, are now keen to make assistance to the bottom end of the social scale their totem by the embrace of a universe of human rights laws: laws capable of being manipulated by a highly liberal ideological judiciary.  Human rights, as understood in contemporary terms, are effectively the rights of minorities – be they criminals, gays or ‘oppressed’ ethnics.

One day a government, maybe not in my lifetime, will wake up and smell the coffee and, after surveying a country so convulsed by the wickedness of criminality, will decide to bring in those useful tools of societal control.  For the moment, we will have to suffer laws designed to protect those who do us harm, and in the final analysis, resort (if circumstances allow) to our own methods of bringing these scumbags to heel.

migrantsST080606_228x172.jpgWhat a surprise! Are you also stunned, nay shocked, to read that more than one in ten of the half a million Eastern Europeans who have flooded into Britain is claiming welfare benefits! The migrants are still arriving at a rate of more than 655 every day, taking the total who have signed the Government’s worker registration scheme to a staggering 510,000. Of these, more than 55,0000 are in receipt of state handouts worth millions of pounds, despite promises that taxpayer-funded payouts would be kept to a bare minimum.

Ministers, rattled by warnings that schools and hospitals are unable to cope with the influx, had been desperately hoping the number of new arrivals would drop-off. But figures published by the Home Office yesterday revealed the opposite is happening. Between July and September this year, 59,000 migrants poured into the UK – 3,000 more than in the previous three months. It is the equivalent 656 new arrivals every day.

So, tens of thousands of those from Eastern Europe who are here to allegedly "do the jobs Britons won’t do" – turn out to be here to take the WELFARE BENEFITS from OUR stupid government offer. Parasites.

795151-561103-thumbnail.jpgSo, poor old O.J. Simpson has lost his deal for a new book and TV interview in which he offered a hypothetical account of how he would have killed his ex-wife and her friend. The book, titled "If I Did It.." and originally due to go on sale on November 30, was touted as a first-hand account by the former football star picturing himself at the scene of the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. HYPOTHETICAL, y’understand. 

Now then, like all civilised people, I am glad that OJ’s grotesque cash-in has been cancelled. I guess he’ll have to go back to searching for ..ahem….whoever done it!

But it got me thinking, there might be a lucrative opportunity for certain OTHER individuals if they produced "If I did.." books – hypothetically speaking.

795151-561061-thumbnail.jpgFor example, New Age poet, confirmed tree hugger and IRA/Sinn Fein leader GERRY ADAMS could publish his "IF I DID IT.." perspective on the bombing of the La Mon House Hotel by the IRA on Friday 17 February 1978. Here is what happened that night…

The terrorists strapped their explosives to two cans of petrol and attached them to the security grille over the windows of the room. They retreated under the cover of darkness, and no doubt congratulated themselves on their brave act as they journeyed home.


The massive explosion that resulted sent a sheet of burning petrol through the small function room, incinerating those in its path. In addition, the glass and materials from the explosion shredded the many helpless, innocent and unsuspecting victims.


Following the bombing, forensic experts had to use scraps of clothing, jewellery and dental charts to undertake the task of identifying many of the guests that evening, such were the heat and ferocity of the blaze. It is hard for us to imagine tonight what it was like for the victims. The explosion sent an intense and colossal fireball of blazing petrol raging through the room. It set people alight and fuelled an uncontrollable inferno.


In the adjoining function room, known as the Gransha room, 400 members and guests of the Northern Ireland Junior Motorcycle club, including almost 100 children, were holding their annual dance, but the guests in the Peacock room took the main force of the bomb. Those who could—men and women, old and young—emerged screaming, with their hair, clothes and bodies on fire and scrambled out of the burning ruin.


Can you imagine what sort of MONSTER would have approved this slaughter? Mmm.

795151-561099-thumbnail.jpgNor should we overlook an opportunity presented to Martin McGuinness – the man who is widely touted as the next Deputy First Minister of the Northern Ireland Assembly. He could provide us with his "If I Did it" hypothetical account of what IRA scumbag authorised the bombing of the little village of Claudy. Here is what happened…

On July 31, 1972, three car bombs exploded without warning in this small village in south Co Derry, killing nine people – five Roman Catholics and four Protestants, among them an eight-year-old girl cleaning her mother’s shop window.


Eight years old. Cleaning her Mum’s windows. Slaughtered. What sort of MONSTER approved that?

It’s a whole new genre….horror, I think.

795151-561126-thumbnail.jpgI see that Scouse humanitarian turned rock singer Noel Gallagher of the Oasis has told soldiers fighting in Iraq to stop complaining when they get wounded. The chief songwriter and lead guitarist said Tuesday troops loved getting involved in war-zone action until they get hurt.  Girly-men – huh, Noel? Mind you, Noel also reckons that his own daughter would become a "mental, axe-wielding, cyber-punk lunatic". I suggest Noel sticks to the onerous task of ripping off the Beatles circa "Revolver".

PS. Not that I think these lefty pop stars are being cynical, but didn’t I read  that Oasis have a "Greatest Hits" out? Mmm…free publicity for bad boys….

Nanny state not enough.

rule-of-rose.jpgComes the news today that the European Commissioner for ‘Justice, Freedom and Security’ is calling ‘for urgent action to limit the availability of “obscene” material to young people’ (Times UK) on the basis of, wait for it, a video game.

That’s right, a video game. And not a hack-and-slash game such as Manhunt, which has the player murder non-player characters in creative ways on someone’s whim, or Resident Evil and its rotting, walking corpses (oh, and chainsaws. Let’s not forget the chainsaws). No, this is a japanese game going by the name of Rule of Rose. A little game, comprising of many puzzles, with a little girl main character who isn’t likely to inflict much damage on anyone or anything.

Rule of Rose, I am reliably informed, is profoundly disturbing. Very unsettling. And good fun to play, not despite those elements, but because of them. And this is right, this is good. There should always be things to provoke us, to disturb and unsettle us, without destroying or damaging us too much, and that is precisely the place which computer games and video games take up, a story which allows the player to dictate the ending, or at the very least to participate in its unfolding.

Fascinating as it is, however, the role of the computer game in the intellectual life of the player isn’t the point here. Nor, sadly, is Rule of Rose. The point is that it is, apparently, not enough to have existing legislation on the sale of computer games. No, there must be ‘urgent action to limit the availability’ of such things. Because, you see, if people see things not of the usual ilk, they might start to think about things. Heaven forbid, a thinking populace!

 Ah, but no. I over-reach. The problem, in its simplest rendering, is that people like this don’t think about things. The portrayal of X does not automatically imply condonment of X, still less celebration of it. But to the thoughtless all are thoughtless, and so it is expected that such things, these types of games which ‘are dreadful examples for our children’ will bring about some kind of moral Armageddon. Automatically. Because, you understand, mere proles can’t actually think.

The crux, of course, is that these things are available to children. In their beginning stages, computer games were marketed more or less solely to children, but this is no longer the case, and it is a major fault of Our Benefactors that they do not recognise this, that rather than cry out for stronger and more sensible implementation of existing laws, they cry out for more and more laws. Today it’s a call for ‘voluntary code of conduct on the production of interactive games for children’, but next year, I somehow doubt we’ll be that lucky. Unless this unelected, unrepresentative quack somehow gets ousted and his ideas binned, I think we can expect things to get worse. A spokesman for this spineless wretch said of the existing rating that it is "not sufficient because anybody can buy them. In practical terms, it is not like when you go to a movie and they don’t sell you a ticket". It’s not the law that’s insufficient, but the implementation thereof. So, therefore, we need more laws. Wonderful.

Well, anyway, to lift spirits, here’s the trailer for Rule of Rose, so you can get some idea and judge for yourselves. Here at ATW we believe in free will and actual thought.
