Is Islam a no go word?

I was enjoying a bowl of yummy pumpkin soup last night when I switched to a Sky program where five people of substance were discussing the Iraqi crisis.

Of course each guest had a pre-programmed attitude on what could be done to solve it. But it was fascinating to observe the language used to describe the combatants. There were the “insurgents”, the “terrorists”, the “jihadists”, the “extremists” and a number of other descriptive titles.

I kept waiting for someone to use the word “Islam”. After all Islam is central to the conflict, it's the banner these degenerates fight under... and its depraved mutations is what they fight over. That’s what drives these people to commit their atrocities, that’s what it’s all about isn’t it?

But no! After 30 minutes (and 30 commercials) no mention of the words Islam, Islamist or muslim. And come to think of it I haven’t heard them for a while.

Section 18C is working nicely.


What are They Plotting in Poland


I’M OFFENDED JULIA, WHY DIDN’T YOU ASK ME? I do really good portraits


I saw that show also and I was having my roast pork and crackle dinner and I couldn't believe that these righteous Islamists were avoiding everything and anything on the subject that deems Islam and Muslims as the religion that promotes haltered and sadism all around the world together with so many of their cowardly clerics who continually pay reference to Hitler and his ways like Yusuf al-Qaradawi who praises what Hitler did to the Jews and offers to shoot some himself is a big hero wherever he is or made that speech from but this guy and all like him are all big mouths and cowards that reflects what all these terrorist groups are, these so called heroes would be the first to run when their safety and security is threatened, it was the same with Hitler and all his cronies. I would bet that if Mossad would get a hold of this coward he wouldn’t be so heroic and such a big mouth, these undesirables have always poisoned the world with religious hatred throughout the ages and are continuing to poison the world with hatred and barbaric cruelty towards everyone.

These born again Muslims will have to get some PR skills if they think they can be Australians .

The Paki's got it right, apart from the poor grammar, when they named their capital city Islam-a-bad.

I was born in an Islamic country (Iran), being a Christian I was bashed as a child and later pressured to convert or else. I missed out University education because I stayed true to Christ. Now these bastards are here and DEMAND to change our way of life to theirs.

Abraham REALLY should have kept his Dick in his pants...

All lefties as usual I suppose.

Yeshhh go the Cowboys

Well they'd better start playing Cowboys and Muslims very very soon!

Islam is terrorism ... end of argument !

Our commercial free to air sometimes have 6 minutes of show to 4 minutes of ads. Even the ABC has 23 minutes of show and the rest, cross promotion of all the abc, I-view, previews of shows to come, maybe a 20 second news update, new improved(?) graphics. SBS has 3 minutes of ads every 15 minutes of show. So the commercial-free ABC is commercial free, but self promotion is rife. Even to gain more promotion it shrinks the credits at the end down to fit in more, so you can't read who played what in a film or series.

I reckon, 30 % of content on Foxtel is Ads and Station identification or whatever they call it in the trade.

The Commercials and Station identification on Foxtel are now obscene. I was watching a show and I counted 11 ads, some repeated in the segment. It is unbelievable. I watched Get Smart the other day, 5 minutes of show, 5 minutes of Ads. Utter crap.

Thanks Janama, I have sent the link to all my friends.

Islam! I 'm over it piss them off.

Gold...absolute Gold ! !

Mmmm pumpkin soup. Freshly grated nutmeg over the top Larry? Oooopd perhaps I should have said - a little grated plant material of a hard structure?

Bit like mentioning the J-word... that's a no-no too...

Wow, that was the answer that made my heart sing. I wish this lady would come to Australia on a lecture tour. This is what all Australians who love their country should hear.

Ok I have more on this theme. When the bomb goes off, I SLAM your face into Achmeds arse........
.Isn't Allah just the greatest cause of death that never existed. Not too bad a result for an imaginary man made fairy tale of death........ha, and yet they still call it peace and love. urrrgh, keep that primative Ayrab voodoo shit away from me , please.

Thank you Larry, I sent an email to Steve and Andrew on 2GB last night pointing out that the PC demonising of locals, who see the Bendigo Mosque as a future centre for terrorism, is dangerous, irresponsible and wilfully ignorant. The "I have many wonderful muslim friends" defense, just goes to prove the effectiveness of the Doctrines of Kitman and Taqiyya , in this naïve nation, with great help from 18c.
