Huge Post on Various Things

Ok, I've been catching up after a couple of days not keeping current...so this is going to be a long one. I hope you've got a drink and something to eat.

First off...The Devil's Kitchen has got it in for Charles Clarke....last
roundup.

An interesting article from The Guardian about the Labour Party, they need a mission not a monarch apparently. (via
Tim Worstall)

DK
questions the honesty of Home Office Minister Andy Burnham. Mind you he doesn't like David "My Blog cost £6200" Milliband.

You may have heard that Borders, an American bookstore, a little like WHSmith I suppose, refused to stock a magazine called The Secular Humanist because it showed those cartoons. It got a fair bit of stick from various sources...however, they are hitting back...a
letter from the boss. (via Tim Worstall)

The Devil's Kitchen reckons we're all doomed.....not. Yes, the
issue of CJD has reared it's ugly head once again. Dangerously Subversive Dad asks the obvious question..."Why Aren't We All Dead Yet Then?"

Still in the vein of disease, a rant about
measles.

The Devil's Kitchen has a rant about that public sector
strike the other day....not impressed with them at all.

Still with The Devil's Kitchen...a
warning for the future...starting with the ban on smoking in Scotland. Bawbags has a comment as well.

"He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future."
— 1984, George Orwell.


Blues and Twos notes that the police chiefs fear coming under Whitehall control.

On to something altogether more unpleasant....
selling your daughter in India. Links to Bookdrunk.

Apparently it is ok to
beat women in Africa. (via Isaac Schrödinger)

The Infidel Bloggers Alliance has a good piece by Pedestrian Infidel,
From Jihadist to Human. It is in 6 parts.

Isaac Schrödinger on the slaughter at
Banu Quraiza by Mohammed.

Isaac Schrödinger again, knows
the key. He links to the Honour Killings article below as well as a number of previous posts on the subject...one of which links to a letter from Saudi Arabia.....it's still happening.

Honour Killings at
Terrorism Unveiled.

Sandmonkey has a piece on
female genital mutilation. Just to prove how out of touch Islamic scholars are from reality, Dr. Muhammed Wahdan provides the following quote to the question :

Interviewer: Is this what happens in reality?

Dr. Muhammad Wahdan: I have no relation to reality. I am talking about how things should be.

Interviewer: You are a religious sheik, from Al-Azahar University. You cannot say you have no relation to reality.

Dr. Muhammad Wahdan: Reality is a mistake, we must rectify it.


Pardon?? You heard it people, he said he has no relation to reality. Also, reality should apparently be rectified. You what? Anyone know how to rectify reality round here? Well that explains quite a few things doesn't it?

Leilouta has something to say about it as well.

Jihad Watch tells that
Abdul Rahman is not alone...also criticising the Chicago Tribune.

Brussels Journal reports that an Estonian soldier is due to be
flogged in the UAE.

The Big Pharoah says why he is
afraid of the Egyptian ballot box.

The Religious Policeman on
buying shares Saudi style. $26,000 to get started. They obviously don't want people investing do they?

Now killing people for minor transgressions is not something exclusive to Muslims....Christians used to do it....a
long time ago though. Go to March 30th and the post entitled Religious Fundamentalism rears its ugly head yet again. I can't link to it properly for some reason.

On a lighter note...
lazy frogs.
