Hvad betyder hijab, burka osv?

Fra The Brussels Journal

In Turkey last May it struck me that the Turks have far more realistic views on the danger of islamism than the European political and media establishment. At least they do not equate criticism of islamism with criticism of religious Muslims.

A Turkish friend told me that I would always be welcome in her country if the Belgian authorities should prosecute me for alleged “racism” or “islamophobia.” She was a Muslim herself but said that she did not understand why the West European countries tolerate islamist extremism to a degree that is not tolerated in her country.

She explained that it was easy to recognize who the fanatics are. “Just watch the way people dress,” she said.

“I have seen you wear a headscarf myself,” I said.

“Are you saying that all the women wearing those are terrorists?” I asked.

“No, but you can be fairly sure that families where the women dress like that sympathize with the terrorists.”

We see growing numbers of these women in our European cities. If my Turkish friend is right it is relatively easy for the police to establish where to find potential terrorists. I am opposed to thought crimes, but I wonder why European governments that introduce such crimes for so-called “racists” and “islamophobes” do not make it a thought crime to sympathize with terrorists. If one can be arrested for carrying a swastika flag, why is one allowed to demonstrate in front of Westminster with the Hezbollah flag (which depicts a machine gun)?

Søren Krarup har opbakning i sit parti

Dansk Folkepartis leder, Pia Kjærsgaard, siger, at Søren Krarup har det med at “bruge billedsprog”, men erklærer sig enig i substansen i hans budskab.

I Nyhedsavisen går partifællen, folketingsmedlem Morten Messerschmidt, endnu længere i sit opgør med selve den muslimske tro.

Jeg mener, at alle muslimske samfund pr. definition er tabersamfund. Muslimerne er ikke i stand til at tænke kritisk.

Nu varer det ikke længe før Kristian, Allan og Maltesen kommer løbende og råber racisme. Så for deres skyld skal jeg her citere fra tidsskriftet Nature; Vol. 444 No.7115 02 November 2006. Det naturvidenskabelige tidsskrift kan vel næppe beskyldes for racisme? Dette særnummer af tidsskriftet om islam og forskning og udvikling underbygger Messerschmidts udtalelser.

“Spending on research and development in the Islamic world is well below the global average, and continues to fall behind that of developed countries in the West.”

“Nader Fergany, lead author of the Arab Human Development Reports (AHDR), argues that building a knowledge-based society in the Arab world means respecting key freedoms of expression and association. He discusses the AHDR reports, which identify deficits in the acquisition and production of knowledge, the levels of empowerment of women, and individual and national freedom as major barriers to Arab development.”

“Herwig Schopper, former director-general of CERN and president of the SESAME Council, argues that a big jump in developing science and technology in Muslim nations is needed and makes several recommendations for how progress might be achieved. He lists the many initiatives that have so far failed to lead to concrete action.”

“Past secular regimes have invested poorly in science and research, with the oil-rich Gulf states being the worst offenders.”

“Too few Muslim governments collect data on the actual status of science and innovation, so the problems facing scientists are not even on their agenda. Without true measures of quality and performance, weaknesses in higher education and research institutions will never be properly addressed. Declan Butler tackles the lack of statistics available on investment and performance, and analyses the best of what is available.”

At Messerschmidt skriver “Når man sætter idiotiske religiøse hensyn over fornuften” er jo også tydeligt dokumenteret herhjemme med lektor Helle Lykke Nielsens kontrovers med de 3 muslimske medicinstuderende Abidah Ashraf, Müzeyyen Ôzgür og Helen Latifi om ramadanens betydning for ulykkesfrekvensen. Her kom de 3 ‘studerende’ jo ynkeligt til kort – netop fordi de satte idiotiske religiøse hensyn over fornuften. En fornuft som hos de 3 burde være mere end almindeligt skærpet – netop af den grund, at de kalder sig medicinske studenter. Absurd at en humanistisk uddannet akademiker sætter 3 naturvidenskabeligt uddannede til vægs i et medicinsk emne!

I parantes bemærket skal jeg lige nævne, at efter HLN’s artikel i Ugeskrift for Læger har der været fuldstændig stille om emnet fra de 3. Patetisk.

DF’s kamp mod Assmas tørklæde fortsætter

I et interview i Nyhedsavisen siger partiets medlem af EU-parlamentet, Mogens Camre, at Asmaa skal have psykiatrisk behandling.

Man må jo behandle den slags mennesker. Det er nogle hjernevaskede små stakler, som går med tørklæder. Skik følge eller land fly, så simpelt er det. Jo før hun rejser, jo bedre, siger han.

OPDATERING: Mogens Camre udtaler, at hans bemærkninger ikke er rettet specifikt mod Assmaa, men mod islamismen som sådan.
