In my previous article Barbie Conquers Iran I reported on the poor youth living under Islam wishing that America would bomb them out of their misery. On this glorious 4th of July when we celebrate the declaring of this nation's independence from tyrannical rule, I think it is appropriate to remember that Muslims who live in the non-civilized world are suffering under odious oppressive regimes.
Barbie is hated by those who rule in Islamic nations not only because she represents the Great Satan, but also because she is an independent woman who doesn't need Ken or any man to validate her existence. She buys her own wardrobe and although she has more clothing than any Muslim woman can ever hope to have, she still fails to cover up those parts of her body offensive to Islam.
Of course, Muslims who have always lived in Europe or America do not really understand Islam. They think that Islam as practiced in the West is the true Islam. They point out that they have fun, listen to music, and have infidel friends. And so they think that if America or Europe were ever to fall under Islamic rule that civilized life as they experienced it would continue. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The so-called Westernized Muslim, the average moderate Muslim that you see on the streets of Canada or America is living under a delusion. Female Muslims in our part of the world that go to work or school without a chador or burqa actually believe that if there were more Muslims here, that things would still remain the same. They do not understand that the only reason they aren't treated like cattle is precisely because our government forbids it. If enough Muslims vote for it, our government will rule under Shariah Law. It is beginning to happen in the UK and will happen in every European country that fails to stem the Muslim infestation there.
Of course, we still have the occasional Honor killings even here in North America. But idiot Muslim women assume that those incidents are just an extreme anomaly, that these are rare events. They will learn, as other Muslim women have learned, that under Islam, as practiced in nations with Muslim majorities, disobeying any male member of their family results in a brutal whipping or death. Shariah Law will not permit women the kind of freedom that they now enjoy in civilized countries.
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
If one had to pick three essential things for a rational man's existence, would there be any but these three? Pursuit of happiness may seem an odd choice, equated as important as a man's life or liberty. Jefferson may have been inspired in part by the sentiments expressed in Ecclesiastes 8:15 - "So I commended pleasure, for there is nothing good for a man under the sun except to eat and to drink and to be merry, and this will stand by him in his toils throughout the days of his life which God has given him under the sun."
In my post Eat, Drink and be Merry - 13 Last Words, I wrote:
While other religions may ask man to extinguish all desires and passions in this world (Buddhism) or to submit to misery and squalor in this world in order to attain joy and pleasure in the next (Islam), Judaism instructs us to enjoy the simple gifts that God gives in the present world. Eat, drink and be merry. Enjoy this life, on this Earth, in this time.
Reader Mohamed Shedou, who blogs at Why I am a Muslim disagreed with me:
enjoying eating and drinking in this life is not forbidden is islam:quran 7:32Say, "Who prohibited the nice things GOD has created for His creatures, and the good provisions?" Say, "Such provisions are to be enjoyed in this life by those who believe. Moreover, the good provisions will be exclusively theirs on the Day of Resurrection." We thus explain the revelations for people who know.
I don't know about you, but the Hebrew verse is quite explicit, one can eat, drink and be merry. Who the hell wants to enjoy provisions? And what are provisions anyway. I say, let's go to an expert on Islam and the explicit word 'fun.'
Wiki, Political thought and legacy of Khomeini
Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious. Islam does not allow swimming in the sea and is opposed to radio and television serials.
But, Mohamed may object and say that's only one man's opinion. I say, it's the opinion of a man who set the rules for an entire religion. But let's look at typical Muslims and see if they really have fun: From my article Muslim Cruises and Islamic Travel I answered the question How many Muslim Cruises are available for Muslims? ZERO!
A MUSLIMS-only day at Britain’s biggest theme park has been axed after a huge bookings flop [Dhimmi Watch].
I won't bother listing Muslim attacks against other Muslims who listen to music, play soccer, or simply dance. Why bother with the obvious? Sorry Mohamed, your lips say Muslims can have fun, your coreligionists practice otherwise.
So on this day we celebrate the founding of a nation in which we are not only allowed to have fun, but it is declared that we have the fundamental right to so.
Today, I will pursue my happiness with a picnic with my family. We will eat, we will drink, and we will be merry.
A note from Radarsite: "There are no jokes in Islam." Just one look at that deadly face of the good Ayatollah tells the whole story. "There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam." No swimming, no kite-flying, no dancing, no music -- there is no fun in Islam.
What, then, is there in Islam?
First of all, there's that unlimited capacity to take offense. Then, of course there's that apparently permanent state of being enraged. Add to this, that infamous reputation for infinite intolerance and hatred, those eternal inter-generational bequests of self-inflicted victimhood, the seething resentments, and the endless plottings of revenge. And we must not forget to mention that inate distrust and contempt of all women, all unbelievers, all apostates, and all of the Others. And we must also remember the stonings, the beheadings, the female genital mutilations, the honor killings, the terrorist attacks, the suicide-bombers, and those ceaseless and senseless rocket attacks against their neighbor's kindergartens in Sderot.
Ah, yes, there is certainly no fun in Islam.
What, then, is there in Islam?
Look closely at this picture, a suicide bomber's last will and testament:
Look closely into this young man's eyes. Enraptured, possessed, transfixed by his fervent vision, his personal and final jihad. He has prepared himself well, this young man, he is ready now. He is ready to slaughter the Others and to give himself to Allah. To give himself to Islam. To give himself to death. And there is no joy in death. And there is no fun in Islam.
Now, let us listen to the Jews of Sderot:
You can hear them singing. They are dancing and laughing and singing, the Jews of Sderot. And the rockets are still falling and the Jews are still dancing. And the men are watching, and the children are playing, and the women are laughing, and --
I rest my case.
