I am a Muslim, a Christian, a Jew and a Buddhist too. If you don't like it, then this place is not for you, but as long as you don't force your beliefs on anyone, you're welcome to join in, it doesn't matter if you're a liberal, a republican or just simply you.
A Facebook look-alike was recently launched in Pakistan in response to "The Draw Mohammed Cartoon Day" and out of revenge against the social networking giant Facebook, for allowing offensive images of the prophet Mohamed to be posted on its site.
Several thousand members have already signed up there in the last 3 days and the site's owner(s) are aiming to sway Facebook users to switch over to their copycat site, hoping to cause some serious damage to Facebook. They say they welcome everyone, regardless if they're not Muslim.
Yikes! I don't think Facebook is going to like this one bit and I don't think this was such a good idea either, but here it is: Millatfacebook.com
The contest was launched today by Dutch satirical website "Stemhok", which translates to "voting booth" in English and as you probably guessed, is all about politics and of course the upcoming parliamentary elections in The Netherlands.
Inspired by the success of Everybody Draw Mohammed Day, Dutch
satirical website Stemhok.nl launches a new initiative: Everybod Draw
Geert Wilders day. Whether you are a fan and want to honour your
crusading hero with a portrait, or whether you just want to vent your
irritations about Blonde Dolly from Venlo, from today you can place your
artwork on our special facebook page.
You could use oils or water colours, pencil or charcoal, create a
collage of newspaper clippings or experiment with goat dung and other
animal excrement: anything goes, providing you can digitally upload it
to our facebook page.
Let your imagination run riot! Wilders has lost weight, so why not
consider a nude? It could be abstract: think Guernica, but with Geert
Wilders. Geert is a big fan of the ‘right to insult’, so feel free to
stretch the limits of propriety. However, we do not tolerate threats of
any kind, so we will not publish any still lifes.
We offer a fantastic prize for the winner: a one year free
subscription to Stemhok! Send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org or
upload them here.
Well, you might find some inspiration in Geert Wilders' hilarious proposal for the Netherlands to start implementing a "headscarf tax" or, as Mr Wilders himself calls it, "raghead tax"...with the intent to eliminate the "pollution" of the Dutch street caused specifically by the "Muslim headscarf". (teeeheehee.....I'm telling you, the dude is funny as hell!)
Yes, the hate page is back on Facebook after
being banished for a while, but it's funny how they'd rather lie about what
really happened than admit the simple truth.
Here is the big fat lie:
Well, I just tried to recover a one of my Facebook
pages, which I had deleted recently and found that there is no way you can recover
a page on Facebook after deletion. So unless there is some super secret way to
do so or these people have some mad skills nobody else has, they are
just a bunch of liars and everybody who takes them serious and joins their
petulant games, are a bunch of fools themselves, besides being utterly indecent.
I'm glad the page is back though, because it
serves as a true testament on how it really doesn't take much to intentionally
malign and marginalize certain segments of the population and how ridiculously
easy it is to fool the ignorant masses with a horde mentality.
My brother Said used to be a big Tintin fan growing up and I used to borrow his comic books occasionally whenever I felt like digging into some action filled adventure. What I remember most about reading Tintin (or "Kuifje" in Dutch) is that it made me feel a little bit sad, mainly because Tintin lacked the emotions necessary for me to be able to relate him as a human being. I felt like he was sort of mechanical in a way, too stuffy and too nerdy, but I really admired him for his curiosity, courage, persistence and sense of adventure. I was just a kid, so I definitely wasn't interested in relating to him from either a gender or sexual perspective. Now some dimwits out there are claiming that Tintin is gay, because supposedly he never expressed having interest in females and also because he lived with a man.
His adventures have sold more than 200 million copies and been translated into 50 languages, and this weekend he celebrates his 80th birthday. But how well do we really know Tintin? One thing's for certain...
The man in charge of recruiting Muslims to support Barack Obama resigned from the campaign on Monday — just nine days after being appointed — when an Internet newsletter revealed the man was on the board of an Islamic investment fund on which a fundamentalist imam also sits.
The two terrorist attacks on April 10, 2007 in Casablanca, Morocco, and the April 11, 2007 bombing in the Algerian capital were harshly condemned in the Arab world. This was clearly reflected in cartoons published in Arab newspapers, many of which dealt with various aspects of Islamist terrorism.
