Er det racistisk at kalde en flok danskere for ‘blegnæb’ – hvis man selv er et? Det spørgsmål rejser to samfundsdebattører, den i Aarhus bosiddende blogger Dan Ritto og den iranskfødte kunstner Firoozee Bazarafkan, nu ved at anmelde Thomas Blachman, jazzmusiker og dommer i talentshowet X Factor, til politiet for overtrædelse af racismeparagraffen, 266b
»Det er et mediestunt for at vise, hvor latterlig racismeparagraffen er. Vi håner rent faktisk racismeparagraffen ved at vise, at den ikke gælder for alle«, udtalte Firoozee Bazarafkan i den forbindelse til sitet kpn.dk. Blachman meldt til politiet for racisme.

Tilstede var blandt andre Mee Allerslev (R), politidirektør Reiman og Zubair Butt Hussain, der mest talte om hvor fornærmet han var over Lars Hedegaard. Han burde være glad over, at der findes en lov, der er designet til hans specifikke fornærmelse, og ikke til andres. Det blev min sidemand, borgerrepræsentanten Finn Rudaitsky for meget, så han rejste sig og gik. Det gjorde jeg også kort efter at have tænkt, hvad holdes dette møde overhovedet for, hvis der er så få problemer, og dem der er, skyldes indfødte kartofler ? Kartofler kan man jo bare dømme til mos.

Revolution, romantik og realisme

To væsentlige artikler om Mellemøsten i disse dage. Romantikerne er de fleste, skeptikerne der måske har oplevet de fleste omvæltninger, de færreste. Italien kan i år fejre sin 150 års fødselsdag som en ikke ret vellykket nationalstat. I syden er det som om intet er ændret siden de dage i 1860 erne. Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa skrev det, som nogle kalder det 20 århundredes bedste politiske roman, Leoparden – der er andre – med den kuldslåede morale for revolutionære: “De vil nu påtvinge os en republik. Hvis vi ønsker at tingene forbliver som de var, må vi ændre dem.” Change ! Og Syditalien forblev stort set som det var, et klansamfund i den nye republik. Øjeblikkets begejstrede kan ikke lide at høre sådan noget. At fratage dem håbet på revolutionære livsrystelser, er at fratage dem det livsmod det kræver, at gå på TV og radio og forhåndsjuble. Der er så mange tomme kanaler, at der er god plads til højtuddannede jubilanter. Andre glædes over forandringer til det bedre, men foruddiskonterer dem ikke. Kasper Støvring:

De vestlige revolutionsromantikere er naive, idealister og universalister: De tror, at liberalt demokrati roligt vil vokse frem; de er forblændede af solidariteten med de undertrykte masser; og de mener, at alle mennesker på kloden deler samme værdier.
Det er vigtigt at forstå, at det er kulturen, der afgør de muslimske landes fremtid. Og når jeg forbeholder mig retten til at være, om ikke pessimistisk, så dog skeptisk, er det fordi muslimsk kultur hæmmer et stærkt demokratisk civilsamfund. Et demokrati kræver, at fremmede mennesker er loyale over for hinanden, og at mennesker ikke kun har tillid til familien, stammen eller klanen. Muslimske lande er notoriske lavtillidssamfund. I Tyrkiet, der går for at være et af de mest vellykkede muslimske lande, har kun 10 procent af befolkningen tillid til fremmede.

Der findes af samme grund ingen frie muslimske lande. Det er ikke racisme at påpege det. Det er en historisk erfaring, der underbygges af det internationale Democracy Index. Et liberalt demokrati er nemlig afhængigt af en national loyalitet, som ikke bygger på religionen eller slægten, men på et fælles hjemland og civile traditioner.

Dilemmaet er, at hvis man indfører demokrati i lande med en muslimsk kultur, så risikerer man meget vel islamisering eller valg efter princippet om én mand, én stemme, én gang. Det skete i Iran, det var ved at ske i Algeriet, og det skete i det palæstinensiske selvstyre. Tyrkiet har i de senere år også bevæget sig væk fra den sekulære Kemalisme til en mere islamistisk politik med stor opbakning i befolkningen. Også her afvises i stigende grad det ’dekadente’ Vesten, og sekularismen opretholdes i sidste instans med militærets magt. Og så er vi tilbage ved de demokratiske revolutioner i Mellemøsten. Kasper Støvring: Feberhed revolutionsromantik

Hamed Abdel-Samad, der kender Egypten rigtig godt, er i Weekendavisen lidt mere optimistisk:

– I din bog kalder du Facebook for den store »demokratiske heretiker«..
»Ja, fordi de sociale medier demokratiserer de unges adgang til viden, uanset om de er børn af ministre eller af arbejdsløse.
Alle har Facebook og kommunikerer med hinanden, også i Saudi-Arabien og Syrien. I det store perspektiv kan man sige, at de positive sider af globaliseringen – adgangen til viden – endelig er ankommet til den arabiske verden. Det har ført til, at den unge generation er blevet fuldkommen uafhængig – og samtidig intet har at tabe på grund af den økonomiske perspektivløshed. Det er præcist det afgørende for, at vi har de revolutionære tilstande.« Hamed Abdel-Samad understreger, at den arabiske verden stadig mangler en uddannelsesrevolution, en økonomisk revolution – og på længere sigt en seksuel revolution, der sikrer ligeberettigelse mellem kønnene.
»Det er en kulturkamp mellem de gamle, idéløse eliter – og den unge generation. I første omgang er det en revolution imod autoritetstroen. Den unge generation har nu vundet den første etape i slaget. Har tilbagelagt ti procent af vejen. Man har skaffet sig af med diktatoren, men 90 procent af kroppen står stadig,« vurderer han. Weekendavisen: Ich bin ein Araber (Ikke online)

Mona Thwany: Et brev til min rumænske familie

Taimour Abdelwahabs kone, om hvis uskyld der kunne rejses begrundet tvivl, (se Ritzau og Mona Thwanys uskyld.) føler trang til at skrive til sin famlie, som hun som det fremgår ikke er på helt god fod med. Til gengæld er hun forståeligt nok helt tilfreds med Yvonne Ridley (PRESS TV, Teheran). Brevet stammer fra hendes egen blog i dag. Den indeholder også et lidt tidligere indlæg: Taimour Abdulwahabs Begravning.

By Mona Thwany

I was approached by a Romanian journalist to take part in an interview about my Romanian origins and background. Frankly, at first, I wanted nothing more to do with the press and I think I have said enough about my late husband, Taimour Abdulwahab’s case in my nearly fifty minutes long interview with British journalist and author Yvonne Ridley.

However, I would welcome the opportunity to put the record straight after all the lies that have been said about me in the press, especially in the Romanian press. I wanted to say it in my own words, no interviews, no selections and no misinterpretations, just MY own words. I have much I would like to say to my Romanian family and to Romanians in general.

All that I would ask of you is: please read what I have to say first before you make your own judgment. Allah is my only Judge

Without me saying even ONE word I have been labelled a “suicide-bomber’s wife”, a “fundamentalist”, an “extremist” and even ”brainwashed”. The worst allegation was claiming that I influenced (or radicalised to use the exact word) my late husband in his actions. Some sitting in judgment of me have also called me stupid for not knowing what my husband was planning.

The reality is, how many of us really know what is happening? In particular, I’m talking about working mothers who have to juggle raising children with running a job – in my case launching and developing a business. This is my reality and added to that I trusted my husband. I had no idea he was leading a double life. Taimour (may Allah have mercy on his soul) is responsible for his own actions, and I am completely and without any exceptions responsible for my actions. Allah (God Almighty in Arabic) is my judge and knows what is in my heart.

My Romanian origins

Back to my Romanian origins and background. I was born in Bucharest in 1982 to a beautiful and talented woman who spent her life looking after the wellbeing of her family. Mother, I will eternally be grateful to you. My father, Ali or Abdul for some, is an impressively intelligent Iraqi architect holding a Ph.D. from Romania in 1999.

However, dear father, I wish you could stop calling me “brainwashed”. Indeed, I had no knowledge of what my husband was doing but I wish you could realise that everything I have done is by pure conviction and I was not made to do anything against my will in regards to my religion. Of all people, you should know this since you raised me to be a free and independent woman.

During his Architecture studies in Romania, my father met my Romanian mother Mihaela and they soon fell in love and got married. And thirty years, three children and five grand-children later their love is still strong.

My mother and father raised us as Muslims and my mother even converted or reverted to Islam in the mid-eighties. She made this decision by her own free will and she would be the first to reject that she had been brainwashed or forced by my father to do this. He would also protest strongly that this was a decision not forced on her by him, but reached freely in exactly the same way that I rediscovered my Faith.

She never adopted the Islamic veil but she is always in my prayers as I wish that one day she will. Dear Mother, I wish that you one day consider practising more of the religion that is dear to more than a billion people around the globe.

Hijab- the Islamic veil

By saying this, I’m not bringing anything new to the table but it’s an important fact. Millions of people have accepted Islam as their religion and way of life from the Americas to Europe, to the Middle-East and Asia and even as far as China and Australia. There are approximately 1,6 billion Muslims in the world and Arabs represent only around 20% of Muslims and people from Indonesia hold the largest Muslim community in the world (with over 200 million people).

Grandfather, as a history and geography teacher, I am sure you have knowledge of this. Hence, when I started, according to you, to “dress like an Arab”, you didn’t take these facts into consideration.

I am sure you know that I, and millions of Muslim women alike, do not dress like Arabs but the “hijab” (the “burka” or “burqa” is particular to Afghan women, by the way) is not only for Arab women but an aspect of the religion of Islam that I CHOOSE to follow.

I can understand that it must have shocked people that I dramatically changed from a tight-clothed, eye-liner loving, red lipped young woman to a more modest (showing only my face and hands), loose-clothed, and head covering “Arab looking” woman, in PUBLIC, I must emphasise. And, by the way, I still love my black eyeliner, IN PRIVATE! In private we, most Muslim women that is, make sure we dress nicely and beautify our appearance.

On my last visit to Romania in summer 2006, I tried my best I to explain to my Romanian family why I have adopted this attire even though I didn’t practice my faith until 2003. I didn’t convert to Islam in 2001 as it was said, as I have always been a Muslim, and I wasn’t married yet whilst being a student in the United Kingdom. There was no husband and no father to force me to cover my hair and body, it was strictly a choice I had made. Similarly, the University of Bedfordshire is also free from blame for my “radicalisation”! It was a choice made by myself, for myself.

Have you ever thought about the fact that our beloved and much respected Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus (Peace be upon them), is always depicted as a modest and pure woman covered up by a „hijab”? The real questions is evidently not why Muslim women wear the hijab but rather why women who claim they love the Virgin Mary don’t!?

Games of the Media

One of the most revealing aspects about the media in this whole experience has been the requests, and on one occasion the “insistence” that I remove my veil for better pictures. The reasoning behind this was because I had a “pretty” face and readers would want to see what I look like.

Surely, being judged on the content of your speech rather than how you look is far more liberating! But no, this editor wanted me to reveal more because it would sell more of his newspapers. I asserted myself and made it clear I am not a commodity but an individual with self-esteem and not a woman prepared to be exploited by the media.

The fact that by continuing to publish my photographs in their newspapers and magazines has exposed my children and myself to dangers through hate crimes or a random attacker seems to have escaped them.

The copyright of all of those pictures (freely given or under pressure matters not) belongs to me. I would therefore ask the media not to use them anymore not only from a legal point of view but from a security point of view. I need to protect my children.

My grand-parents’ village

What strikes me the most is that, during my short stay in Bolintin Vale that summer of 2006, in the privacy of my grand-parents home and beautiful, forest-like garden away from prying eyes of non-relative males, I looked like an ordinary jeans and t-shirt girl. With open hair and lipstick, I was the same girl they’d always known. The only difference was that I would cover up in public and in the eventual visit of a male stranger.

In Islam, there is a time and place for everything: a time and place for worship where we look modest, but also a time to have a good time during celebrations and parties, a perfect opportunity to look pretty and attractive. Muslim women do not wear their head coverings at all times: most Muslim women beautify themselves in front of their families, husbands and female friends.

Yet, a person in the family did not even hesitate making the following statement: “stop dressing like an Arab and start dressing like a civilised person”.

I am not even going to start talking about the history of civilisations and I will certainly not go into the history of the Arab and Islamic civilisation that lasted for a good thousand years while Europe was in its Dark Ages.

Furthermore, while in Romania that same year, I felt a huge difference between Romania and the United Kingdom where I freely walk in the streets and I do not get stared at, pointed at, laughed at or treated like an alien.

On the other hand, in Romania some people would say in a slow and loud voice “V-O-R-B-E-S-T-I R-O-M-A-N-E-S-T-E?” (do you speak Romanian?). Da, vorbesc româneşte (yes, I speak Romanian). I am Romanian yet I was treated like an Alien due to the way I dress.

Invitation

Did you know that according to a very recent article by the Daily Express, there are thousands of British people converting to Islam each year as Islam has become the fastest growing religion in the world? I personally prefer using the word “reverting” to Islam instead of “converting” as Muslims consider accepting Islam to be the simple “reverting” of the human being to the natural disposition of believing and worshipping the One God, Allah.

Do you also know that most of these reverts of Islam in the United Kingdom are free, independent, white, some with blonde hair and blue eyes, British women? Most of them eventually adopt the Islamic veil…are these British women then “uncivilised”, “forced”, “subjugated” women because they wear the Islamic hijab?

I think not! Just take a look at Yvonne Ridley, a British woman who reverted to Islam a few years ago, she’s an excellent example! It is therefore, and with great pleasure, that I INVITE my family and the people of Romania to read and educate themselves about the quickly becoming the largest religion in the world: Islam.

You don’t have to believe in it, or agree with its teachings, or adopt Islam as a way of life, and you don’t even have to like it! Nevertheless, you OUGHT to have basic common knowledge about this religion.

Islam’s main universal call concentrates on the worship of Allah Almighty ALONE without any partners and the belief in His Holy books (mainly the Quran as the Word of God), His Prophets (Peace be upon them all) starting with Adam and Muhammed (Peace be upon him) being His last Messenger, His Angels, the Day of Judgment, Paradise and Hellfire as well as Divine Predestination (or destiny): the good and bad both come from Allah.

Furthermore, did you know there are approximately 70,000 Muslims living amongst you, mostly in the area of Dubroja? Are they being treated in the same manner I was treated in Romania?

They are Romanians, they breath the air you breath, they speak the same language you speak, they eat the same food you eat and they even look like you do and yes they have been Romanians for many centuries!

Likewise, one of my good friends in the United Kingdom is a Romanian revert to Islam from a Romanian mother and a Romanian father who live in Moldova.

There are also over eighty Mosques or Masjids in Romania, why don’t you visit one of them and maybe grab a Romanian translation of the Quran? Go to the source in order to learn about the religion of Islam and not to the mainstream misconceptions about Islam.

If this knowledge doesn’t benefit you, it certainly will not harm you!

Dear grand-parents

My dear Romanian grand-parents, although revealing my personal life to the media and showing pictures of my family, my children and myself without my consent have been very detrimental to our lives, I forgive you. Yes, you have my forgiveness.

Nevertheless, I am taking the security of my children very seriously even if that means not contacting you anymore.

I have always tried to keep in touch with you either by phone, letters, and by sending you pictures of us and of my children. You are my blood, and my beautiful religion demands of me to keep ties of kinship even with my non-Muslim relatives. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

However, I cannot omit the fact that other relatives have always supported me in all my decisions and always said “do whatever makes you happy”. And they know Islam makes me happy and brings peace to my soul even though they are not Muslims and they have a very different lifestyle to mine.

I therefore thank you for being the kind and supportive relatives you are. I live in the hope that one day our children will have the opportunity to play together and that you see my little Princesses and my little Lion, Osama (this is what Osama means, by the way).

Osama is, in my opinion, a beautiful name, and is sported by thousands of people, especially in the middle-East!

I am proud of my origins

So the main question is…how do I feel about being of Romanian origin? I will tell you how I feel about my origins.

I am PROUD of my Romanian origins. Yes, I am proud of being Romanian in the exact same way I am proud of being Iraqi!

Unfortunately, I was never made to feel “Romanian”.

And it’s with great surprise and AMUSEMENT that, after 28 years, I am finally considered a ROMANIAN by the press!

Since I was a small child, I have been called “Araboaica” or “the Arab” even though I spoke like a little Romanian, I acted like a little Romanian, and I even ate the Romanian “Sarmale” and “chiorba de perisoare ” not to forget my grand-mother’s tasty “chiftele” and “zacusca” to name a few.

Similarly, when I went to the Romanian Embassy in London a few years ago, I was looked at from top to toe, scrutinised by the consular staff in Great Britain asking me with disbelief written all over their faces: “Are YOU Romanian?”. “Da, sunt Romanca” (yes, I am Romanian) was my reply, even though I knew they didn’t believe me.

Don’t get me wrong, I was never made to feel Iraqi either especially since I have never lived in Iraq. It has most of the time been said about me “yes…but her mother is Romanian”. I hope, even so, I get the opportunity to visit Iraq one day, the country of my father thus even my country.

I am proud, not to be confused with arrogance, of my origins and being part of the “melting pot” that the world has become.However, I am a MUSLIM first and foremost because Islam is a religion for all mankind, regardless of country, ethnicity, physical appearance, skin colour or economical status. I am proud to be a Muslim as Islam has accepted me UNCONDITIONALLY.All Praise be to Allah, my Creator, whom without I wouldn’t be what I am today.

A great trial

I would finally want to thank some of my family and friends for their help and support and also to tell my acquaintances and some of my relatives: if you do not want to help me in my ordeal, it’s completely understandable, all I would ask of you is not make things more difficult than they already are.

Also, please do not believe everything you read in the press!

Personally, I would have preferred to have had this conversation privately with my family and friends, but they chose to make this a very public affair and so I have now chosen to respond likewise. Now that I have shared these concerns, I hope it has made things clearer than they were before.

Truthfully, what people call me has no real importance: my priority is my children and their wellbeing. I will also try to protect them as much as I can and to provide for them the best life I possibly can, with the help of Allah of course.I hope now we can be allowed to grieve in private. The children have lost a father and I have lost a husband.

Coming to terms with that loss is going to be a huge challenge which I hope we can overcome with patience and gratitude. I would therefore kindly ask you to give us the privacy and respect we now need to mourn quietly and in peace, insh’Allah (God Willing)

  • In islam, women for raping, not loving. By Dr. Radhasyam Brahmachari. Kilde: http://www.islam-watch.org ( Khan).

    That’s why Muslim clerics ban Valentine’s Day celebration…

    ——————————————————————————–

    Every year, 14th February is observed across the world as the Valentine’s Day, the day of Love between men and women. But Muslim clerics in Islamic countries denounce the Valentine’s Day celebration as un-Islamic, while radical Muslims engage in violence and vandalism to stop its celebration. Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country with over 238 million people, has the world’s largest Muslim population. This year, the Dumai Chapter of the Indonesian Ulema Council declared the celebration of Valentine’s Days illegal. Council Chairman Rozai Akbhar said, “Observing Valentine’s Day is un-Islamic as it encourages young people to build relationship without marriage.”

    Love is sinful in Islam
    Indonesia’s neighbor Malaysia is another predominantly Islamic country with a population of over 28.25 million. Islamic department of Malaysia this year launched a propaganda campaign, called ‘Mind the Valentine’s Day Trap’. Pamphlets were distributed at universities and public places by government officials, urging rejection of the Valentine’s Day celebration. In Pakistani, a group of eight Islamic parties started a campaign on February 14 to protest the event. “The secretary general of Tahaffuz Namoos-i-Risalat Mahaz (TNRM) party asked to mark the Valentine’s Day as a black day. He worried that observing such event may change the country into a secular state.”

    Iran and Saudi Arabia have officially banned Valentine’s Day. An Iranian official memo reads: “Printing and producing any products related to Valentine’s Day, including posters, brochures, advertising cards, boxes with the symbols of hearts, half-hearts, red roses and any activities promoting this day are banned.”

    A notification in Pakistan says,

    “In recent times, celebration of the Valentine Day has spread, particularly among female students. It is a Christian celebration, and it is (manifested) with fully red costumes, clothing and shoes, and exchange of red roses. We hope that you make clear for us the ruling on celebrating this holiday, and what your guidance is to Muslims in matters such as these, may Allah preserve you and guard you. For Muslims, the celebrating the Valentine Day is not permissible because,
    1. Firstly, it is an innovated holiday that has no basis in the Sharee’ah.
    2. Secondly, it calls to love and passion.
    3. Thirdly, it calls for keeping one’s heart busy with nonsense matters which contradict the guidance of the righteous predecessors, with them.

    On Feb 13, FFI posted the news “Love is Sinful in Islam” and a learned reader commented, “Love is natural and by which only humanity survives. Islam is against nature. Anything against the nature would be wiped out from the earth automatically. It is only by threat and violence Islam has survived for 1400 years.” Another reader, as a reply to his comment, wrote, “Actually no. Love is not required for the survival of the species, only sex is. Even if every child was born as the result of rape, the species would survive (as Mink ably demonstrate btw). And ponder how Islam typifies husband-wife “love”: she must provide sex-on-demand even if at the stove on the back of a camel (Masabih/ibn Majah); and if she declines sex, Angels curse her.”

    This statement concisely encapsulates the pure Islamic view regarding relationship between a man and a woman, or between a husband and a wife.

    But many young Muslims in Islamic countries want to celebrate the Valentine’s Day a day of love. To this trend, a Muslim zealot laments:

    “Many of the Muslims follow the enemies of Allah in many of their customs and ways of behaving, and imitate them in some of their rituals and in celebrating their holidays. The matter has been made even worse by the opening up of mass communications between peoples, whereby the rituals and customs of the kuffaar are now transmitted with the glamorous adornment of sound and image from their countries into the Muslim countries, via satellite TV and the World Wide Web (Internet). Many Muslims have been deceived by their glamour.”

    To this a learned reader reacted: “Even the butterfly grow and pierce the cocoon to come out and live a free life in a few days. Muslims are in darkness for 1400 years, in the cocoon of Islam. Thanks to the swords, imams and fundamentalists. They should realize at least now (in the era of internet and email) that they have been brainwashed all these years would go futile. The role of youngsters is very important. They should learn the evils of Islam and teach their parents and brothers and sisters.”

    Jalving om nyt værdipolitisk oplæg af Michael Böss

    http://blogs.jp.dk/frontalt/2011/03/03/rend-mig-i-finanskrisen/

    Dato: d. 03.03.11, 14:15
    Af: Mikael Jalving

    Bedst som man gik rundt og troede, at al snak om værdikamp og værdidebat – eller værdier i det hele taget – var forstummet og henlagt til bedre og mere fordelagtige tider, udkommer på mandag et næsten 400 sider langt oplæg til ny værdipolitisk debat af den århusianske universitetslektor Michael Böss på Informations Forlag.

    “Men hvad der er vigtigt at forstå, er, at den såkaldte udlændingepolitik – at skabe en vellykket integration – hænger sammen med det projekt, der hedder styrkelse af den danske økonomi. Så forudsætningen for, at vi kan redde ’underskudsforretningen Danmark’, er at genskabe forestillingen om, at vi er et folk med et fælles projekt.”

    Hvad går projektet ud på?

    “Loyalitet over for folk og stat er for mig at se en enorm vigtig værdi. Men den er desværre under nedtæring. Derfor har vi nu, hvor debatten om ‘danske værdier’ og ‘multikulturalisme’ tyder på at være ved at rinde ud, fordi der – bortset blandt anti-nationale multikulturalister – hersker en bred politisk konsensus om de grundlæggende værdier for det danske samfund, brug for en ny værdipolitisk debat: en debat om værdierne bag de institutioner, som har gjort Danmark kendt ud over verden som en af de mest velfungerende stater og sammenhængende samfund.”

    ….

    • Peter Buch

      Jeg spørger i går omkring kl. 17 hr. Jalving om følgende, hvorefter kommentarlysten synes aftagende hos alle:
      Hvor væsentligt det er, at større fortjenester med mindre investeringer kan fås andetsteds end lokalt og dettes tiltagende betydning for lokal økonomi, er vel i sidste ende også et spørgsmål om prioriteringer. Meget andet end faktummet at fortjenester fås større andetsteds end lokalt- der vist har opbakning fra både empiri og eksperter- kan vurderes, værdisættes, som mere væsentligt og interessant.
      Formindskelsen og ultimativt elimineringen af finanskriser opnås vel bedst ved en søgen sikring af det mest elementære, tilstedeværelse af bolig, fødevarer, energi, visse råstoffer og ejerskab, medejerskab og medindflydelse på en række felter så betaling af disse livets nødvendigheder og livsvilkår ikke er uopnåelige for nogle, selv med små behov, eller uformåenhed til deltagelse i større karriereskabelse.
      Hvorledes svarer hr. Böss i bogen på spørgsmål om problematikken om formindskelse af finanskrisers betydning, eller svarer han overhovedet på spørgsmålet, ud over det her citerede- …forudsætningen for, at vi kan redde ’underskudsforretningen Danmark’, er at genskabe forestillingen om, at vi er et folk med et fælles projekt,- hr. Jalving?

    Ene og alene af den grund, at vi ved at kigge ud af vinduet jo kan se hvordan muslimer klarer sig i helt og holdent demokratiske/moderne/civiliserede stater, som de europæiske.

    På hvilket reelt grundlag bygger man sin optimisme?

    Ja, det kunne jeg fandenedme godt tænke mig at vide!

    Danske feltrationer er halal:

    Projektleder Teit Jørgensen fra Forsvarets Materieltjeneste siger til CS-bladet, at der ikke er lavet et bevidst fravalg af kød fra grisen.

    Leverandøren af feltrationerne er fundet gennem EU-udbud, hvor der skal overholdes en række regler, oplyser han.

    For eksempel må forsvaret ikke kontakte andre leverandører, når udbuddet er i gang, selvom ingen af de retter, de fik til prøvesmagning, indeholdt svinekød.

    – Årsagen til det er måske, at leverandørerne er store firmaer, der leverer til hele verden, gætter Teit Jørgensen.

    Vi er helt til grin: “EU-dom truer dansk 24-årsregel”

    Hvorfor dømmer EU-domstolen og Menneskerettighedsdomstolen mon
    ALTID imod nationalstaterne og de ufrivillige værtsbefolkninger?

    Danmark kan blive tvunget til at lempe udlændingelov.

    Af Niels Schack Nørgaard, Søs Lykke Sloth og David Tarp

    Én af de mest markante stramninger af den danske udlændingelov i VK-regeringens levetid, den såkaldte 24-årsregel, står til at blive udhulet af EU. Ifølge flere juridiske eksperter betyder en konkret EU-dom fra december, at Danmark reelt kan miste muligheden for at nægte familiesammenføringer til tyrkiske satsborgere under 24 år.

    Årsagen er, at EU-landene tilbage i 1980erne indgik en aftale med Tyrkiet om [ Hvorfor ?!?!], at fremtidige stramninger af udlændingeregler ikke skulle gælde tyrkiske statsborgere med arbejde i EU. Og netop det princip har EU-domstolen nu anerkendt.

    [ Der var også et længere indslag om dette i den seneste radioavis på P1 – bla. med et interview med
    en “ekspert” fra SDU, som næsten ikke kunne få armene ned af ren jubel – godt bistået af studieværten, der
    ikke stillede et eneste kritisk spørgsmål om de negative konsekvenser eller nævnt DFs og andres reaktioner
    på denne udvikling. ]

  • “cultural and artistic freedom”, som der står skrevet.

    Med “cultural” menes der islam. (Artistic freedom kunne man have demonstreret ved at håne Muhammed på forskellige måder)

    Betyder det at vi skal åbne op for flerkoneri, pædofili, æresdrab, slaveri, opdeling imellem ikke-muslimer og muslimer, fejring af muslimske martyre der er faldet i kamp for Allah og hans din?

    Alt dette er nemlig integrerede dele af islamisk kulturel praksis, uden hvilke muslimerne i den grad er hæmmede, ja ligefrem ufri i at udøve deres kultur/religion fuldt og helt og frit!

    Er det ikke racisme at nægte muslimerne denne menneskeret?

    Og så til dagens griner. Under Folketingets debat om den FN konvention der just har givet dybt kriminelle satasløse Palæstinensere stasborgerskab skruede V og K for alvor bissen på. Ganske vil de ikke droppe Danmarks tilslutning til konventionen som Df forelår, men de vil nu se om de kan få ændret ordlyden af den. Altså, nøjagtig som de ville se om de kunne få ændret det EU-direktiv, som lå til grund for Metoch-dommen. Iøvrigt udtaler Mark Manly,som er leder af UNHCRs enhed om statsløshed i Geneve.

    “Man kan ikke ændre konventionen, teksten ligger fast. Vi hos UNHCR så derfor helst at man slet ikke havde den her type debatter”

    Altså, FN systemet mener ikke bare det er urealistisk at få konventionen ændret, men de så også helst at man overhovedet ikke diskuterede den slags. Mon ikke en sådan klar tale fra en højtplaceret FN medarbejder vil få fløjsmaverne i V&K til at knalde hælenen sammen og stoppe al kritik om konventionerne.
