From Britain with biting wit and satire - The Trouble with Islam
Now, I didn't make that up - The Trouble with Islam is a "film" found at The Trouble with Islam. I had difficulty with the video but finding the site is worth its weight in gold. My computer or the programs I have made it difficult to watch with the stopping and starting for "buffering" et al but it is worth the time it takes to watch. And watch it quick you must. I must say the gentleman is a "cheeky" fellow from a brief review of the titles to his videos and must warn you that he tosses fun and ridicule at each and everyone of us, no one is safe from his barbs and jabs. But this humor, this seeing the funny side of ourselves and our idiosyncracies is one attribute that has made America for one a great nation. We unfailingly make fun of the Irish, the Brits, the blue-bloods among us, our Founding Fathers even do not escape our humor; and when we were allowed in the days of national unity before the "apartheid" of diversity and political correctness set in, we made jolly good of ourselves and each other - before we developed thin skins, skins so thin as to tear at even the hint of - gasp - insult. Before we were made of sterner stuff when we had humor as well as gentility, ie, manners. So, enjoy the satirist and know that no one escapes his sharp and biting tongue... No need to agree with him; just enjoy. A tad of humility never hurt any great nation or its people. I tried to write down some of the audio, transcribe it as it were because of all of the starts and stops. It begins like this, "...ironic to me that the very people who have made no attempt to think for themselves are demanding respect for their ideas...But because we live in a liberal country and have certain double standards to maintain any mention or criticism of Islam or Muslims is called islamophobia, a dishonest word...when the truth is that Islam has a chip on its shoulder the size of a mosque..." When speaking of the bombings and blowing people up, the great writer in the video says, "yet curiously you never hear about any of these enthusiastic clerics blowing themselves up for the glory of God - they are keen to delegate that particular honor despite the guarantee of all those lucious virgins waiting there in heaven..." "But," the writer ends, "I don't want be too harsh on Islam for two reasons:..." I'll leave it to you to visit the site and enjoy the presentation. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=418_1176494781 Watch it quick. One can never tell how long it will be allowed; we Western cultures do have those "double standards" to uphold. Peace be upon you... Goodnight and have a great Sunday. Ever vigilant! Ever free!
