The Saudis Blast the Denmark Cartoons

The Saudis are upset about the cartoons too. They keep on thinking this is something horrible and the world should be outraged. Wrong. They just don't get it. I can't wait for the UN to pass some ridiculous statement (the US will abstain I hope) criticizing the world making fun of Mo. The Useless Nations that we pay for will condemn the West for making fun of Mo and the cult that came out of his ass and has plagued the world for 1400 years. Who'd thunk it?

Kingdom Blasts Sacrilegious Cartoons
P.K. Abdul Ghafour, Arab News

JEDDAH, 24 January 2006 — Saudi Arabia yesterday denounced European newspapers that published cartoons denigrating the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and said such spiteful actions would spread hatred and animosity among people of different faiths.

“The Council of Ministers expressed the Kingdom’s condemnation of what is published by certain European newspapers defiling the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh),” the Saudi Press Agency said. The Cabinet was referring to the caricatures published by some Danish and Norwegian dailies.

The Cabinet meeting, chaired by the Regent Prince Sultan at Yamamah Palace in Riyadh, expressed anguish and surprise at the inadequate reaction from governments and people in those countries against such vilifications, despite their economic, political and cultural relations with the Islamic world.

In a similar statement, the Shoura Council also condemned the attacks of Danish and Norwegian newspapers on the Prophet and said such publications would unleash communal hatred. [Unlike the Mohammedans?]

“The acrimonious cartoons on the Prophet hurt the feelings of Muslims across the world and gave false information about a great personality, who was selected by God to become His last messenger,” the statement said.

The 150-member Shoura Council urged the Western world to read the history of the Prophet and learn about his noble qualities, morals and ideals. It said the Prophet opposed extremism and corruption. [They just don't quit! What do you call a person who believes his own lies? A Muslim]

“Those who publish such cartoons do not know the consequences; they will spread hatred and division and create animosity between communities and religions,” the Shoura said. [Oooh, scareee]

The statement rejected publication of such obnoxious cartoons in the name of freedom of expression. “All constitutions and laws in the world call for the respect of Prophets and divine religions,” it added. [No they don't. Let's see you sell that lie to the West.]

Shoura Council Chairman Dr. Saleh Bin-Humaid urged intellectuals and peace-loving people of the world to stop such vilifications against the Prophet of Islam and punish its perpetrators.

The Shoura urged the Danish and Norwegian parliaments to stand against the anti-Islam campaigns in their countries.

....

The 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference, the European Commission and many international Islamic organizations have condemned the printing of the provocative cartoons.

(Note this little piece at the end about the welfare state for the lazy built on oil money. SRs are about 3.75 to one US $, or about a quarter for each SR)

Referring to the Royal Decree increasing the maximum social security allocations to families, the Cabinet said a single-member family will get SR9,400 annually, while a family with two members will get SR12,500, three members SR15,600, four members SR18,700, five members SR21,800 (about 6 thousand US $), six members SR24,900 and seven members SR28,000. The new allocations will be effective from Jan. 31, 2006. ...

Uh huh. The Saudis are upset about cartoons of a pig who raped a nine year old girl, and they feel wonderful about the 14 out of 19 hijakers of 9/11.

I don't know how you feel about Mohammed's face showing up in public but I do everything I can to let people know just exactly what he's like.

I posted all 12 of these mildly amusing (let's face it) cartoons on my blog in the beginning of January this yaer.
You should see my comment section now.
And it all started just a few days ago.
I think they already issued a fatwa and a price on my head.

If Christians were as half-assed as Muslims were with their indignation and predictable outrage, the Christians would have destroyed every copy of "Jesus Christ Superstar" back in the '70s.

I challenge all and everyone to debate with me whether Jihad is the way forward. Rational and logical dialogue. You people make me sick with your arrogant ignorant comment. Islam is the true way of life and i can prove it and argue my point to anyone willing to try and disprove me rationally!

Well if you were that serious about having a dialog with everyone' - you wouldnt have started with polite comments like 'You people make me sick with your arrogant ignorant comment', since u r trying to be all scholarly here so why not try to prove something wrong in our blog before saying that? as for your 'religion of peace' aka 'best religion' perceptions about islam, you want to debate about them, i welcome the debate. we're blogging here for a reason, we dont walk in blind faith.
