Islam's Dissenting Voices / Systemic Rape?

Well, folks that read the comments can note I got a visit from an Iranian blogger named Uspace who has a blog called Hard to Swallow. Well, went to his blog, and have clearly distinguished for myself that there is indeed an upper limit to the density of hyperlinks in blog text. Uspace has sailed well past this limit.

What a hornet’s nest. First, learned a new word, dhimmitude, per the link the Islamic system for governing populations conquered during the jihad wars. Dhimmitude is apparently an integrated system based on Islamic theology.

The rabbit hole led to another blog, Infidel Bloggers Alliance, which is not the least bit shy in its criticism of Islam, a website truly after Glenn Beck’s heart. For those that don’t remember, in a one hour CNN Special Exposed: The Extremist Agenda Beck compared Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to a modern day Hitler seeking to establish the Islamic version of a Third Reich converting or killing the rest of the world. I said at the time that no way did Ahmadinejad have that kind of grip, and recent Iranian elections support the view that he cannot consolidate forces behind him in a way that comes close to the Fuhrer.

Now, whether the Infidel blog is racist or the recognition of reality is beyond my depth, but it links to a video that was apparently too much for YouTube (a video that is too much for YouTube?!), and only Ifilm has it.

There seems to be growing noise legitimate or not about statistically significant rapes and gang rapes perpetrated in Norway, Sweden, and other European countries. I can't read Swedish, but the Expressen article points to a growing conversation about Muslim men and this notion that Islam beliefs about jihad and women include rape, as discussed in this Jihad Watch article, which extends the conversation to what is happening in Darfur. Here is an Irish Viewpoint using the same photo of the Swedish victim as the Expressen article.

Dissenting voices from within Islamic nations are using the internet to reveal other violence apparently condoned by the system. While not as gruesome as a beheading, this stoning video should not be viewed by the easily disturbed.

With some history in the mining industry, I have a good grasp of the concept of extracting what is good from a very large pile and discarding the rest. I think the better analogy is the physician treating cancer, faced with the challenge of eradicating what is bad without harming the rest.

What a mess.

Thank you very much for mentioning us, and the kind words, and also, thanks for that great Iran Stoning Video, I added it and you to my growing library.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe wants
public stonings...

God of the Universe says

you simply must respect it
no matter how sick or vile
