Hans Brinker Media

yawn - no news here

yawn – no news here

The latest news event not covered by sleepy Canadian media this week is the story of provocative advertisements plastered on public transit buses in Washington DC. Some may argue that controversy surrounding what a US city allows or disallows is hardly news in Canada but this is clearly not the case considering that same sex marriage ceremonies at successive US city halls have been widely celebrated across Canada and won’t stop until all 50 states finally “see the light”.

No longer potato heads in Idaho!

Others may pretend that the current bus posters showing an archival black & white photograph of Adolf Hitler meeting with the leader of a major world religious organization is of no interest but this is simply untrue; the image of the 20th century’s most abhorred tyrant alone appearing on an advertisement today would pique the interest of just about every living human on the planet. And still others will say that airing dirty laundry isn’t the charitable thing to do but this too is not true. The same media organizations that believed that the threat made by a small town US pastor to burn a Koran was world class news are now plugging their ears and shielding their politically correct eyes about the bus ad controversy in Washington DC.

The scandalous pastor and the lying imam

The “scandalous” pastor (and the lying imam)

I checked Google today and found that aside from the local Washington papers & Time magazine, none of the usual suspects from mainstream media (and none from Canada) have bothered to cover the story. But it is just a matter of time before our complacent  media will soon run out of fingers with which to plug all the leaks springing out of the dykes they’ve built to hold back the inconvenient truth about the failure of multiculturalism in Western society. Knowing that it is always open season in the media on Christianity, loyal readers of  metrolandmedia or the CBC can be certain that the ad in question does NOT depict Pope Puis XII meeting with Adolf Hitler (after all that WOULD be newsworthy for a century or so). Readers will just have to look beyond the politically correct news that is fit to be printed by the Toronto Star, The Waterloo Record , the CBC and other neutered media in order to learn just who was photographed fawning over Hitler at the height of World War II and can be seen smiling on the buses today in a Western nation that hasn’t muzzled free expression.

Oh and if the bus photograph isn’t clear enough to show where the allegiances of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem lay maybe this will clear things up:

Hitler Akbar!

Hitler Akbar!

Speak softly and carry a big ……..hashtag

If looks could kill

If looks could kill

Now that Michelle Obama has joined thousands of social justice activists in the Twitter campaign #BRINGBACKOURGIRLS, Abubakar Shekau must surely be regretting his words – if not his actions.  Today’s occupants of the Whitehouse have shown that they are kinder and gentler than than the Imperial wannabee Teddy Roosevelt  ( speak softly but carry a big stick). They don’t even risk ruffling any feathers by speaking softly and instead communicate using pictures and tweets. Regardless of what Michelle, Barack or MSNBC think, the holy warriors at Boko Haram have no fear of America’s of stick  or even Michelle’s formidable stare.

The only thing that Abubakar Shekau and his religious zealots fear is Allah and they know that when it comes to abducting and enslaving infidel school girls, they have Allah on their side. Shekau proclaimed in a now infamous video broadcast:  “I abducted the girls at a Western education school, and you are disturbed. I said Western education should end…I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah. There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell; he commands me to sell. I will sell women. I sell women.” And he is right. Sex slavery is as Islamic as ablutions, hijabs and the hajj.

muslim-slave-tradersWhile the US civil war ended the last outpost of slavery in the Western world in 1865, slavery  continued in the Ottoman Empire until the 20th century.  Islamists  pine for the good old days when there was a unified Islamic Empire, ruled by a Caliph – rightly guided or not.  The Ottoman Caliphate had a long history of plundering neighboring lands and enslaving children by the thousands annually.  Boys taken from their homes in the Turkish ruled Balkans were groomed into fierce fighters called Janissaries. The Janissaries turned on their former coreligionists and helped bring Jihad right to very the gates of Vienna. Girls harvested as booty of war were sold in Slave markets including the infamous Aurut Bazaaar in Constantinople.

Though Caliphs were tossed into the dustbin of history early last century,  slavery has persisted in Islam and remains a reality in North Africa. Long before Michelle hopped on to the #bringbackourgirls bandwagon,  people of conscience have been working to free slaves from Islamic backwaters.  There is of course another form of Islamic sex slavery on the rise in the form of Muslim rape gangs. Far too many Muslims in Britain are exercising their new found freedom and economic clout by grooming and prostituting English girls. The problem has grown so severe in Britain that even Jack Straw has noticed but Jack, like the politically correct media, prefers to slander all South Asians rather than focus on the subset of “Asians” that are behind this plague.

Islamic groups are now in full damage control mode and are condemning Boko Haram’s acts  – at least they are in the English media. We’ll have to wait for MEMRI to translate current sermons and Islamic talk shows to hear what the true scholars of Islam have to say about this rather than take the Islamic lobby groups for the word on this latest Islamic atrocity.  In the meantime,  “bold” announcements are being made by the usual suspects who pick their words carefully and wring their hands about how “un-Islamic” it is.

unIslamic – the ultimate insult

But how unIslamic is it? Barack Obamas’s “beacon of learning” (Al Azhar university) is also is mouthing condemnation of Boko Haram but in true Islamic fashion, they speak out of both sides of their mouths. This week the scholars at Al Azhar condemn kidnapping and enslaving children as “unIslamic” but the experts from this same prestigious Islamic university certified this very same act as orthodox theology when they reviewed Sheikh Nuh Ha Mim Keller’s translation of Islamic Sacred Law into English under the title “Reliance of the Traveller

At that time, l Azhar’s experts certified Mum’s book “conforms to the practice and faith of the orthodox Sunni community: cetrtification

And what exactly does the orthodox Sunni community have to say about taking children captives? Why it says section o9.13  (page 247 of the pdf version available on line) of the Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law affirms that Abubakar Shekau is correct; he does have Allah’s blessing to sell off these abducted girls into slavery .

the word of Allah

But of course this is par for the course in Islamic Scholarly thought. Any religion that proclaims in one verse of its most revered scripture ( the most perfect and wonderful book handed down from Allah)  that there is no compulsion in religion (Koran 2 256) but in another that  revered “People of the Book” who do not acknowledge Islam must be subdued (Koran 9 29) can’t be expected to be rational.  Islam again proving that  war is peace and ignorance is strength.
