Sometimes a Cartoon is Just a Cartoon

They're not your grandfather's cartoons anymore. The Muslims are up in arms again over some really weak cartoons published months ago in a Danish Newspaper and again in a Norwegian paper this month.

The Saudi Arabian ambassador has been recalled from Denmark, Lybia is closing it's Embassy in Denmark, The United Arab Emirates' Minister of Justice and Islamic Affairs Mohammed Al Dhaheri called the cartoons "blasphemous" and the publishing "disgusting and irresponsible...This is cultural terrorism, not freedom of expression."

Egypt is refusing to discuss a Danish loan of $75.5 million while Egyptian newspapers quoting politicians saying they don't want work with a country that has insulted the prophet. Pakistan is "engaged" with the Danish government over the cartoons.

Government officials in Denmark have expressed their regrets, but refuse involvement "citing freedom of expression." The publishing newspaper,The Jyllands-Posten, is refusing to apologize saying "it did not mean to insult Islam."

The Socialist People's Party leader, said Denmark "cannot be a country where the prime minister goes into hiding while Denmark loses export money, Danish citizens are being threatened and Danish flags burned."

An EU office in Gaza was briefly commandeered by masked gunmen demanding an apology from Denmark and Norway. In an absurd action, Arabs are refusing to buy Danish cheese.

In the many months of this particular Muslim idiocy, I have searched for these infamous cartoons, but, heretofore was able to find only two of them. Now, courtesy of L'Ombre de l'Olivier I present all 12 blasphemous cartoons.

Okay, now we can judge for ourselves who the crazy people are - the Mohammad the Prophet folk or the Mohammad the Profit people. Or just Mohammad.

Hamas: Israeli Flag Must Change

Mahmoud Zahar, the Grand Pooba of the Loyal Order of Hamas, demanded the flag of Israel must be changed, reports Arutz Shiva.

"Israel must remove the two blue stripes from its national flag...The stripes on the flag are symbols of occupation. They signify Israel's borders stretching from the River Euphrates to the River Nile."

This is typical Arab hogwash and know-nothingness.

The Israeli national Flag is patterned after the traditional prayer shawl, tallit, that Jews wear around the shoulders or on the head. The tallit has tzitzith, fringes both short and long in the four corners. Most commonly, the tallit is white with blue strips.

The Torah (Numbers 15:37-41) has commanded that Jews wear the long fringes to remind them to keep all of the 613 Commandments written in the Torah (and Christians think keeping the Ten Strongly Worded Suggestions is hard!)

What is really going on is this: The Arabs and so-called Palestinians have persuaded Israeli doves into ceding parts of Israel away to murderous thugs. These same thugs have recently conned the world into believing they can hold Democratic elections for a parliament of a country that doesn't exist. It's like when we were kids voting in the treehouse fort - it's all very important while we were up the tree, but had no meaning at all once we came back to earth.

Many believe a Parliament of Nowhere has actually been elected and now the thugs think they can command Israel to remove the stripes. That will leave only the Star of David on a white background. The stripes themselves are innocuous; it is the Star that Hamas ultimately wants removed leaving only the white background. When this happens, the world will confuse the Israeli flag with the French flag and in the confusion Israel will simply slip from earthly consciousness, ceasing to exist.

Trust neither the French, nor the Palestinians, nor any other falsely named peoples of non-existent countries.
