50% japaner + 50% amerikaner = 1 dansker ????????????

Angående “danskeren Kiku Days” kronik i the Guardian kommer der artige ting frem.

The Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0,,1709754,00.html 

There are, surprisingly, apparently no Muslims represented in today’s comment section, an oversight which will no doubt be quickly corrected. The space usually devoted to Islamists is today awarded to one Kiku Day, “a Danish musician living in London“.

Ms. Day’s article describes her discomfiture at her country’s “lurch to the far right“. “We were a liberal and tolerant people until the 1990s“, but now “politicians of most stripes have embraced ignorance“. For example, “Denmark has embarked on a self-declared crusade to tell others how to live“. Her evidence? The fact that:

“The prime minister, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, is quoted as saying: ‘Freedom of speech should be used to provoke and criticise political or religious authoritarians.'”

Shocking ignorance indeed – but nothing compared to that displayed by “the founder of the ultra-rightwing Danish People’s party, Pia Kjærsgaard“. Ms. Kjærsgaard’s proposal – as befits one conceived by an ultra-rightwinger – is completely beyond the pale, as Ms. Day explains:

” … the founder of the ultra-rightwing Danish People’s party, Pia Kjærsgaard, felt emboldened to say that in order to qualify for citizenship, immigrants must not only master the Danish language but be examined on their respect for Danish society and its values.”

The horrible brutality thus displayed is quite simply beyond words! Thanks are due Ms. Day for this exposure of this utterly contemptible policy of the Danish fascists. And, speaking as an immigrant myself, I’m also thankful to live in an enlightened society in which such horrific measures are quite simply unthinkable.

Erm … hang on.

We hope to see many more Guardian contributions from Ms. Day in the future – and we’re encouraged by the fact that this is not her first appearance in its comment pages. In 2004, she penned a scathing criticism of the movie Lost in Translation, which has as its “very spine” “anti-Japanese racism“, the expression of which is a reflection of the evil beast that is … wait – take a guess.

You are correct!

The US is an empire, and from history we know that empires need to demonise others to perpetuate their own sense of superiority. Hollywood, so American mythology has it, is the factory of dreams. It is also the handmaiden to perpetuating the belief of the superiority of US cultural values over all others and, at times, to whitewashing history.”

Ms. Day speaks with some authority on the matter, as she reveals herself to be Japanese-American. As she puts it: “The Japanese half of me is disturbed; the American half is too“.

It remains unclear just what percentage of Ms. Day is Danish.

Den sidste bemærkning er da ubetalelig. Ja fr. Day hvornår er du blevet dansker??

Danske imamer er ikke de eneste der fører løgnehistorier frem

As we saw, Friday’s quota of Islamist apologist comment space went to the Muslim Brotherhood, represented by Anas Altikriti.

Monday it was the turn of Tariq Ali, and the great man does not disappoint. Although a secularist, Mr. Ali’s radical leftism makes him a natural ally of the Islamists – but his praise for them is not absolute, as is evidenced in this column. In fact, Mr. Ali rather takes them to task – for not responding strongly enough to slights other than those carried out by Danish cartoonists. Mr. Ali appears to be calling for more angry outbursts, and seems to be attempting to incite them with a specific story of Muslim humiliation:

“What I find interesting is that these demonstrations and embassy-burnings are a response to a tasteless cartoon. Did the Danish imam who travelled round the Muslim world pleading for this show the same anger at Danish troops being sent to Iraq? The occupation of Iraq has costs tens of thousands of Iraqi lives. Where is the response to that or the tortures in Abu Ghraib? Or the rapes of Iraqi women by occupying soldiers? Where is the response to the daily deaths of Palestinians? These are the issues that anger me. Last year Afghans protested after a US marine in Guantánamo had urinated on the Qur’an. It was a vile act and there was an official inquiry. The marine in question explained that he had been urinating on a prisoner and a few drops had fallen accidentally on the Qur’an – as if pissing on a prisoner (an old imperial habit) was somehow more acceptable.”

The urination story, which has the appearance in context of a deliberate attempt to provoke, is deeply suspect. The explanation given by the marine is described here, in the official report on such incidents (PDF):

“On 25 MAR 05, a detainee complained to the guards that urine came through an air vent in Camp 4, and splashed on him and his Koran while laid near the air vent. A guard reported to a Block NCIOC that he was at fault. The guard had left his observation area post and went outside to urinate. He urinated near an air vent and the wind blew his urine through the vent into the block. The Sergeant of the Guard (SOG) responded and immediately relieved the guard [an act which seems to me unnecessary, as the guard had just relieved himself]. The SOG ensured the detainee received a fresh uniform and a new Koran. The Joint Detention Operations Group (JDOG) commander reprimanded the guard and assigned him to gate guard duty where he had no contact with detainees for the remainder of his assignment at JTF-GTMO. This incident was recorded in a series of contemporaneous sworn statements made by Camp 4 guard force members. There is no record that this incident caused any type of disturbance in the block. We consider this a confirmed incident.”

I’d be very interested in seeing Mr. Ali’s evidence regarding the marine’s explanation – I suspect that no such (credible) evidence exists. If my suspicion is correct, Mr. Ali’s attempt to incite is at best reckless, at worst a shamefully dishonest attempt to provoke a reaction which – as we’ve seen all to clearly these last few days – is likely to cost lives.

Offensive Cartoons

Media Apologize For Offending Muslims While Ignoring Anti-Semitic Cartoons“The publication of cartoons that incite religious or ethnic hatreds is unacceptable.” U.S. Department of State

The decision of several European newspapers to publish cartoons portraying the Islamic Prophet Mohamed has led to death threats and rioting around the world. While many in Europe are standing firm, the cartoons’ publication has also produced strong apologies by international leaders and some of the media. The managing director of France Soir (one of the papers that published the cartoons) was even fired “as a powerful sign of respect for the intimate beliefs and convictions of every individual for allowing them to be published.”

Jyllands-Posten, the original Danish paper that published the cartoons, had this to say: “They (The cartoons) were not intended to be offensive, nor were they at variance with Danish law, but they have indisputably offended many Muslims for which we apologize.”

We wonder why no similar outcry and apologies have come after viciously anti-Semitic and anti-Israel cartoons are published on an almost daily basis throughout the Arab world. The following cartoon (as reported by Palestinian Media Watch) was published in Al-Hayat, the official newspaper of the Palestinian Authority, last month. Perhaps the reason that it did not provoke an outrage is that by the standards of the Arab press, it is hardly exceptional. “Offensive” Cartoons in the Arab Worldarabcartoons01.jpg

Australsk tegner deltager i Irans holocaust tegnekonkurrence


One of Australia’s best-known cartoonists, Michael Leunig, on Tuesday denied entering two of his works in an Iranian newspaper’s contest for cartoons about the Holocaust, saying they were sent maliciously by someone else. A media report out of Tehran had said Leunig had submitted the first entry in the contest, launched Monday by Hamshahri, one of Iran’s top five newspapers, in retaliation for the publication of drawings of the Prophet Muhammad.Leunig vehemently denied the claim, saying he had been “set up horribly, maliciously.” He said had been contacted late Monday by a concerned editor at Melbourne’s The Age newspaper, which publishes many of Leunig’s cartoons. 

Der er tvivl om, om det er tegneren selv, der har indsendt tegningen, eller om det er andre, der har gjort det. Han tager selv afstand fra, at den er indsendt, men det, at han tegner tegninger, der kan anvendes taler jo for sig selv.

Imamer snød med falske billeder

De dansk-muslimske imamer skelnede ikke mellem, hvilke billeder der var blevet offentliggjort, og hvilke billeder de selv havde taget med i det 43 sider lange dokument, som de rejste rundt med i Mellemøsten.

Talsmand for de muslimske organisationer Ahmad Akkari har ellers gentagne gange hævdet, at de tydeligt havde markeret i sagsmappen, hvilke billeder de havde fået tilsendt og alligevel medbragt, bl.a. det meget omtalte grisefoto.

Men lektor Helle Lykke Nielsen, Center for Mellemøststudier, Syddansk Universitet, har nu nærlæst dokumentet, og hun konkluderer, at det ikke er blevet afgrænset, og at man faktisk fristes til at tro, at de ekstra fotos var blevet offentliggjort i danske aviser.

»Når Akkari siger, at deres egne billeder, som ikke var offentliggjort, lå separate, er det simpelt hen forkert. Det er svært at læse dokumentet anderledes, end at de ekstra billeder hører til offentliggjorte billeder. Jeg synes, at det er meget alvorligt med denne bevidste eller ubevidste manipulation. Deres egne billeder har utvivlsomt været med til at ophidse stemningen,« siger Helle Lykke Nielsen.

Udlændinge strømmer til Danmark

Filed under: Politisk korrekte — Hodja @ 01:17

Historisk højt niveau for antallet af udlændinge, der får opholdstilladelse i Danmark. Sidste år fik 3.000 flere opholdstilladelse end i 2001.

Aldrig har så mange udlændinge fået opholdstilladelse i Danmark. Sidste år indløste 39.729 udlændinge billet til Danmark, viser tal fra Udlændingestyrelsen og Danmarks Statistik.Bag tallene ligger et boom i antallet af opholdstilladelser til udlændinge, der vil studere eller arbejde i Danmark. På blot fem år er antallet af opholdstilladelser til studier og job fordoblet. Samtidig er VK-regeringens stramme udlændingepolitik slået markant igennem. Antallet af opholdstilladelser til flygtninge og familiesammenførte er styrtdykket fra samlet 17.213 i 2001 til 4.676 sidste år.

Engelsk universitet uddanner Iranske ingeniører til Irans nuklearindustri

British campus link to Iranian nuclear centre
Gareth Walsh

A BRITISH university has agreed to train engineering students from a notorious Iranian nuclear research centre in an attempt to plug a hole in its finances.

Birmingham University will this September receive the first batch of 60 students from Amirkabir University in Tehran. Amirkabir has been accused by intelligence agencies of operating as a front for the secret purchase of nuclear technology by Iran.

The scheme, devised by Birmingham to plug a predicted £800,000 deficit, may be forced to close if the United Nations imposes sanctions against Iran.

Mark Fitzpatrick, a senior fellow at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, said: “Any kind of technical exchange with organisations that are involved in Iran’s nuclear or missile work would likely fall to a cut-off at a later stage.”

The Iranian university has helped develop technology used in the manufacture of nuclear warheads, and its engineers are carrying out research into missile guidance systems.
 The engineering department at Birmingham struck the deal, worth up to £700,000 a year, after other overseas students failed to turn up. Universities earn three times as much in fees from overseas students as from their UK and EU counterparts.
Under the scheme, the Iranians study for two years in Tehran, then finish their degrees in Birmingham after completing military service.

Så er det man spørger sig selv, hvad får englænderne for det? Garanti for ikke flere selvmordsangreb – hvis en sådan kan gives?
