1 Billion Rising and the Qu’ran

When I lived in the Bay Area, I saw a fair number of protests. Most were ridiculous affairs and only served to annoy folks who were trying to get around town. (Folks probably refers to me, and folks of my ilk. I imagine some people liked ’em. But they were not per se folks. Take my word on it. I could provide links, but I’ll will spare your visual receptor nerves.)

Eve Ensler, the writer of the Vagina Monologues used this Valentine Day to stage an anti-rape dance/protest known as 1 Billion Rising. The self-righteous smugness of some of the protestors is as expected. Although, I agree with the idea that rape in all forms is unacceptable. But I think any sane person thinks this way too.

Take this dhimmi holding up a sign about the Qu’ran. Who spells it that way? Seriously. Why not Koran or Quran? Because this is the Bay Area and we must be culturally obsequious. And has she read the Koran? I have and it is not the book she thinks it is.

If you look in the top corner of her sign, on the right side, you will see a clumsy attempt at writing the word allah (الله.) Her letters look weird and it reminds me of my first attempts at writing Arabic. The first four weeks of Arabic instruction at our military language school (DLI) is called scream and scribble. And scribble we did. (Although I never screamed, except in frustration.As for the poor lady and her sign, she is lost. I pity her and all these other folks.

  1. That spelling is the correct one for those who are politically correct…it is Navy One, honestly. But as to the accuracy of the statement; we both know it’s absolute nonsense…words and deeds are two entirely different things when it comes to that particular book and its practitioners. These people are not only ‘dhimmis’ but useful idiots as well….and useful idiots are blindingly arrogant and ignorant…and this exactly why the American left aligns itself with Muslims as National Socialists (Nazis) did in Germany close to eighty years ago….history, history…the facts never lie but people do….k

    1. Useful idiots is right. Do they not follow the news over there? They adopt this air of superiority. (I’d better stop, I spent too long in the Bay Area to buy the bs. And I can get wound up about it.)

  3. In today’s information rich world, messaging is everything. You’re informed enough to understand just how “off” her message is. I can assure you, though, that the passers-by and the media were delighted by this multiculturalism and indication of shared values.

    I’m feeling blue today. Common sense and core knowledge seems to be absent from most of the messaging streaming towards the American people.

  4. That’s one collectivist sign. I love trite slogans from the illiterate – so motivating. I’m so inspired that I think I’ll go have an alcoholic drink and forget the dhimmis.

  6. I’m pretty sure that particular sura (5:32) applies only to the concept of killing other, “good,” muslims only…certainly it allows for killing in retaliation or for “corruption in the land.”
    As a card-carrying Kuffar, I doubt I’m protected under this clause…nor are pretty much anybody else reading this blog, either.
