Fra en kommentar her på siderne:

“På vores lille smedevirksomhed har vi i de sidste 30 år beskæftiget mange fremmedarbejdere –  tyrkere kurdere spanioler pakistanere jugoslaver. Problemet med disse var indtil muhammedkrisen lig nul. De fleste af disse folk som er en lidt ældre årgang spurgte, om der var muligheder for at ansætte nogle af deres SØNNER som lærlinge, og svaret var ja, vi ville være istand til at tage 3-4 stk , og her er det så at diskrimminationen kommer ind. Den ene “muslim” havde en datter der er kommet på værkstedet siden hun kunne gå og hun ville gerne i lære som kleinsmed.
Men hold da kæft en ballade der blev , for SØNNERNE skulle ikke tvinges til at arbejde sammen med piger.
Pigen fik en læreplads og to andre(en kristen og en muslim) fik de to andre pladser.
Jeg er snart træt af at høre om diskrimination hele tiden og især fra en gang studenterrøve der ikke er tørre bag ørerne.
Fakta er at min nabo og genbo er gift med henholdsvis en thai og en kineser , begge i arbejde efter et ½ år i DK.
Rundt hjørnet i vor meget lille by bor 4 muslimske familier på 3die år og ingen af dem er i arbejde, idet der hver gang der bliver nævnt noget med sprogskole , så får man lige pludseligt traumer af en eller anden art.”

En del af problemet er jo, at der må være danskere i det offentlige system, der tillader sådanne tilstande. Jeg kan jo lige erindre om dette.

Assmaas og enhedslistens ‘frihedskæmpere’

photo-24.jpg

Soldiers from 5th IA said al Qaeda had cut the heads off the children. Had al Qaeda murdered the children in front of their parents? Maybe it had been the other way around: maybe they had murdered the parents in front of the children. Maybe they had forced the father to dig the graves of his children.

Hvorfor ser vi ikke medierne konfrontere hende med billeder som disse? Frihedskæmpere sammenligner hun dem med. Danske frihedskæmpere begik ikke uhyrligheder som disse. Jeg kunne ikke finde billeder af børn, som islamisterne angivelig bager og serverer for deres forældre.

Ovenikøbet hørte jeg hende sige på Nyhederne om frihedskampen under besættelsen at ‘vi’ havde gjort sådan og sådan imod besættelsesmagten. Sagen er jo den, at vi ikke havde nogen muslimer i landet på det tidspunkt. Og hvis side havde de stået på? Ville ‘danske’ muslimer have medvirket til at redde de danske jøder, hvis der havde været nogen af dem her i landet på den tid?

Hvad siger historien fra den periode? (Og det er jo kun en brøkdel af muslimernes bidrag til holocaust).

Jeg siger bare: Assmaa og enhedslisten er omvandrende ulykker, der hele tiden vil finde muligheder for at ske.

The latest terror plots are confronting tolerant Britons with uncomfortable choices.

Theodore Dalrymple i LATimes

“A friend who met me at the airport said something that must by now be true of many ordinary British people. Just as we used to wonder, on meeting Germans of a certain age, what they had done during World War II, so she wondered, when she found herself next to a young Muslim on a bus or a train, what he thought of the various bombings perpetrated by his co-religionists and whether he might be a bomber. She found herself looking for the nearest exit, as we are all enjoined to do by flight attendants before the plane takes off, in case of the need for swift exit.”

[…]

“One of the most sinister effects of the efforts of the bombers and would-be bombers is that they have undermined trust completely. This is because those under investigation turn out not to be cranks or marginals but people who are either well-integrated into society, superficially at least, or who have good career prospects. They are not the ignorant and uneducated; quite the reverse. Seven people detained in the latest plot worked in the medical profession.”

Science and Islam in Conflict

Filed under: Ægypten, Citater, Evidens, Islam, Koran, Muslim World, Oplysning om islam — Hodja @ 14:09

All over the world, no matter what the cultural or language differences, science is more or less guided by scientific principles—except in many Islamic countries, where it is guided by the Koran. This is the ultimate story about science and religion.

Cairo, Egypt: “There is no conflict between Islam and science,” Zaghloul El-Naggar declares as we sit in the parlor of his villa in Maadi, an affluent suburb of Cairo. “Science is inquisition. It’s running after the unknown. Islam encourages seeking knowledge. It’s considered an act of worship.”

[…]

In recent times, though, knowledge in Egypt has waned. And who is accountable for the decline?

El-Naggar has no doubts. “We are not behind because of Islam,” he says. “We are behind because of what the Americans and the British have done to us.”

He hands me three short volumes he has written about the relationship of science and Islam. These include The Geological Concept of Mountains in the Holy Koran, and Treasures in the Sunnah, A Scientific Approach, parts one and two, along with a translation of the Koran, whose title page he has signed, although his name does not appear as a translator.

In Treasures in the Sunnah, El-Naggar interprets holy verses: the hadiths, sayings of the Prophet, and the sunnah, or customs. There are scientific signs in more than one thousand verses of the Koran, according to El-Naggar, and in many sayings of the Prophet, although these signs often do not speak in a direct scientific way. Instead, the verses give man’s mind the room to work until it arrives at certain conclusions. A common device of Islamic science is to cite examples of how the Koran anticipated modern science, intuiting hard facts without modern equipment or technology. In Treasures of the Sunnah, El-Naggar quotes scripture:

“and each of them (i.e., the moon and the sun) floats along in (its own) orbit.” “The Messenger of Allah,” El-Naggar writes, “talked about all these cosmic facts in such accurate scientific style at a period of time when people thought that Earth was flat and stationary. This is definitely one of the signs, which testifies to the truthfulness of the message of Muhammad.”

Elsewhere, he notes the Prophet’s references to “the seven earths”; El-Naggar claims that geologists say that Earth’s crust consists of seven zones. In another passage, the Prophet said that there were 360 joints in the body, and other Islamic researchers claim that medical science backs up the figure. Such knowledge, the thinking goes, could only have been given by God.

Critics are quick to point out that Islamic scientists tend to use each other as sources, creating an illusion that the work has been validated by research. The existence of 360 joints, in fact, is not accepted in medical communities; rather, the number varies from person to person, with an average of 307. These days most geologists divide Earth’s crust into 15 major zones, or tectonic plates.

El-Naggar even sees moral meaning in the earthquake that triggered the 2005 tsunami and washed away nearly a quarter of a million lives. Plate tectonics and global warming be damned: God had expressed his wrath over the sins of the West. Why, then, had God punished Southeast Asia rather than Los Angeles or the coast of Florida? His answer: Because the lands that were hit had tolerated the immoral behavior of tourists.

The influence and popularity of El-Naggar—as a frequent guest on Arab satellite television, he reaches an audience of millions—does not sit well with Gamal Soltan, a political scientist at Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies, a Cairo-based think tank.

“This tendency to use their knowledge of science to ‘prove’ that the religious interpretations of life are correct is really corrupting,”

he tells me. Soltan, who got his doctorate at the University of Northern Illinois, works in a small office that’s pungent with tobacco smoke; journals and newspapers lie stacked on his desk and floor.

“Their methodology is bad,” he says. Soltan explains that Islamic scientists start with a conclusion (the Koran says the body has 360 joints) and then work toward proving that conclusion. To reach the necessary answer they will, in this instance, count things that some orthopedists might not call a joint. “They’re sure about everything, about how the universe was created, who created it, and they just need to control nature rather than interpret it,” Soltan adds. “But the driving force behind any scientific pursuit is that the truth is still out there.”

Researchers who don’t agree with Islamic thinking “avoid questions or research agendas” that could put them in opposition to authorities—thus steering clear of intellectual debate. In other words, if you are a scientist who is not an Islamic extremist, you simply direct your work toward what is useful. Scientists who contradict the Koran “would have to keep a low profile.” When pressed for examples, Soltan does not elaborate.

[…] 

As Soltan points out,

“Cairo University has not received Western professors since the 1950s, and because of the turmoil in the country, many professors who didn’t like the regime were excluded from the university.”

[…]

What about, say, evolutionary biology or Darwinism? I ask. (Evolution is taught in Egyptian schools, although it is banned in Saudi Arabia and Sudan.)

“If you are asking if Adam came from a monkey, no,” Badawy responds. “Man did not come from a monkey. If I am religious, if I agree with Islam, then I have to respect all of the ideas of Islam. And one of these ideas is the creation of the human from Adam and Eve. If I am a scientist, I have to believe that.”

But from the point of view of a scientist, is it not just a story? I ask. He tells me that if I were writing an article saying that Adam and Eve is a big lie, it will not be accepted until I can prove it.

“Nobody can just write what he thinks without proof. But we have real proof that the story of Adam as the first man is true.”

“What proof?”

He looks at me with disbelief: “It’s written in the Koran.”

[…] 

“It’s a custom here, and in the rest of the Arab world, to marry cousins, even first cousins,” she tells me, though the practice is becoming less common. “Of course, that means they share a lot of genes from common sets of grandparents.”

In other fields, pure research does not get support; in medical genetics, even practically applicable knowledge can spark conflicts with Islamic culture.

“Taking a blood sample to study abnormalities is not a problem,” Chaabouni says. “That’s just investigation. The problem is when you take the results of research into the clinic and try to give genetic counseling to patients. Then you have people who won’t accept the idea that they have to stop having children or that they shouldn’t marry their cousin.”

[…] 

“Science needs stability, democracy, freedom of expression,” says Senator Adnan Badran, who has a Ph.D. in molecular biology from Michigan State University, as we drink Turkish coffee at his office. “You must have an environment that’s conducive to free thinking, to inquiry. If you don’t, you’ll never be able to release the mind’s potential. It’s a very bleak story, a very disappointing story, about the state of science and technology in the Arab region.”

Ban foreign language imams – peer

Foreign imams who do not learn English should be banned from giving sermons in UK mosques, a Labour peer has said.

Lord Ahmed’s comments come as a survey suggests imams lack professional and language skills to tackle the threat of radicalism among young British Muslims.

Only 8% of imams preaching in British mosques were born in the UK, it found.

Research at 300 mosques by Chester University for BBC News and the BBC Asian Network also indicated only 6% speak English as a first language.

Sopcast

Filed under: Asien, Film, Internationalt, IT, Medier DR m.fl. — Hodja @ 12:24

Billig ist besser: Gratis Fußball sehen via Internet

Mit SopCast kommt der internationale Spitzenfußball über Umwege direkt zu Ihnen nach Hause. Die P2P-Multimedia-Anwendung aus China überträgt nach dem Prinzip von Tauschbörsen Fernsehbilder mit dem dazugehörigen Ton über das World Wide Web auf Ihren PC. Bundesliga-Fußball und chinesischer Top-Spiele inklusive.

Nach demselben Prinzip wie PPLive bezieht SopCast das Bildmaterial von chinesischen und teilweise europäischen Fernsehsendern. Im Zusammenspiel mit dem Windows Media Player und dem RealPlayer gibt die kostenlose Software Bild und Ton wie bei Online-Streams direkt auf dem Computer wieder. Die auf Deutsch übersetzte SopCast-Benutzeroberfläche erklärt sich dabei von selbst. Einfach Programm auswählen, warten und genießen.

Fazit
Zwar hält sich die Anzahl der unterstützten Fernsehsender in Grenzen. Wenn ein Sender aber erst einmal geladen ist, überzeugt SopCast durch gute Bildqualität und sauberen Ton. Im direkten Vergleich mit PPLive hat die P2P-Fernsehsoftware dank der in sich geschlossenen, leicht verständlich aufgebauten Benutzeroberfläche die Nase vorn. Wirklich problemlos kommt man aber erst mit der ebenfalls kostenlosen Anwendung TVU Player zu einem Internet-Fußballabend.

Fra FAZ.NET hvor programmet kan down-loades. Der findes andre som PPLive, TVAnts og Freesoccer.

Så vidt jeg forstår, er det ikke bare fodbold man se. 🙂

«På tide å bli kyniske og nådeløse»

Høyrepolitikeren Mubashar Kapur er enig i at integreringen ikke har fungert godt nok.

Løsningen er ifølge den unge politikeren at Norge blir mindre naive. Man må bli mer selektiv i forhold til hvem man slipper inn.

“Det er på tide å bli mer kyniske og egoistiske. Vi må fokusere på dem som har kompetanse og som vi har bruk for, sier Kapur. Han sier det er viktig at Norge ikke framstår som naive i innvandringsspørsmålet.

Vi må bli nådeløse mot innvandrere som ikke har oppholdstillatelse. Dette gjelder også asylsøkere. Hvis de bryter loven må vi sette standarden. Vi er ingen velferdsstat som skal beskytte folk som utøver kriminalitet, sier Kapur.”

Racistiske angreb efter Glasgow

Filed under: Islam, No dhimmi, Terrorism, UK — Hodja @ 09:02

Den mislykkede terroraktion mod luft­havnen i Glasgow i sidste måned har medført en bølge af racistisk motive­rede angreb i byen.

Politiet i den skotske by har registreret over 200 angreb med racistisk undertone, mange af dem rettet mod muslimske familier og butikker.

Racisme? Det er jo et rent tilfælde, at  det er muslimer det går ud over. Hvis det var rødhårede, der havde forsøgt at sprænge tusindvis af passagerer i Glasgows lufthavn i luften – ja så ville skotterne selvfølgelig være sure på de rødhårede.

Kvinden havde været i byen og blev sat af en taxi på Godthåbsvej tidligt søn­dag morgen.

På vej ned ad Godthåbs Væn­ge blev hun antastet af de fire unge, som hun dog afviste. En af dem trak en kniv og stak ud efter hende, så hun fik flere afværgelæsioner på hænderne. Derefter slog eller sparkede de hende, så hun faldt omkuld og mistede bevidstheden.

Assmaa: Fair at angribe danske styrker i Irak

Hun opfordrer i det seneste nummer af Socialistisk Arbejderavis til at støtte irakernes kamp imod de danske og udenlandske styrker.

Tager du afstand fra de irakere, der fører en væbnet kamp imod de danske styrker?- Jeg er ikke imod en væbnet kamp. Det er en modstandskamp, og derfor er det også helt fair,

siger Assmaa Abdol-Hamid til B.T.

Bliv endelig ved Assmaa. Dine holdninger kan alt andet lige kun få flere og flere danskere til at tage afstand fra dig og enhedslisten.
