The World Has Gone Mad

Waking up to the bizarre news that Obama has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize was an exercise in a real life acid trip. The do-NOTHING, did-nothing, great divider has been awared a prize in which even Lech Wałęsa says "is too early." The

Times Online calls this an "absurd decision on Obama makes a mockery of the Nobel peace prize.
All this man has done is further allowed people like this man I captured on my camera in the subway last week to live here peacefully while he flaunts sports his politically motivated muslim/arab shawl with no worries and probably to many pats on the back from the idiot libtards I live amongst in NYC. Freedom they would proclaim, while this man proclaims with one gesture of clothing the opposite. Stoooopid stoooopid dumbed down people.
We elected the Pepsi President. Flash, dazzle, advertising to make us buy a product we never needed and was overpriced.

Greg said, "It makes the award meaningless now." I totally agree. Ugh!

Freedom they would proclaim, while this man proclaims with one gesture of clothing the opposite.

The only thing this man is proclaiming with his Shimagh, is that he follows Islam, he's a Muslim.

We don't know that he's of Arab decent, and he's just likely as not, to be for peace, freedom of expression, association and religion. He's just as likely to be politically non-active and he may well be a pacifist. He could be against universal Islamic law, Jihad, bombings, Fatwa and the forced wearing of the Hijab. He may be, heaven forbid, a good, law abiding, productive, fully contributing, patriotic American citizen that happens to be Muslim... they do exist Lauren.

So in my opinion we only know one thing about this man... no, make that two... he's Muslim(1), and at the hand of this post, he's the victim of shameless bigitry(2).

Angry said...

Oh I forgot to mention... I'm with you on the Nobel Prize for President Obama, although not for the reasons you state here. I think he summed it up well, "I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many transformative figures that have been honored by this prize."

It's been awarded to someone, when compared to most previous recipients, has done nothing yet to deserve it. And by doing so, it's undermined the integrity of the award.


Lauren said...

@Angry, the only thing shameless is you who A)hides behind the stupid name Angry and B) writes idiotic inferences that you cannot back up with fact. If you even bothered to pick up a book by Irshad Manji you'd understand what a stupid moronic libtard you are and what that cloth stands for. It's NOT religious. It's political.

NorsU said...

@Angry, I'm not totally up on that cloth but know that it indeed has Political significance. It's roots are as a Palestinian national symbol. There is historical precedence and is very symbolic defiant Anti Israel. It's a Symbol of Palestinian solidarity opposed to the ongoing Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.

There are a lot of Muslims that flat out want to eliminate/eradicate Israel and all Westerner "Infedils". Obama and the left are dangerously appeasing this group and weakening against this real threat.

Your charges of Bigotry? No, calling it like it is from my viewpoint.

@ Angry
You think that the man pictured could be a law abiding, patriotic American, and a Muslim ?
Well, can a devout Muslim be an American, patriot and a loyal citizen?
I don't think so, because scripturally his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran,
Socially his allegiance is to Islam which forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews,
Politically he must submit to the mullah, who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan,
Domestically he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him. (Quran 4:34).
His shemagh tells us of his tribe affiliation and their beliefs. Its time to join us here in the real world.

@ Lauren
Sorry for the long comment.
You know I am your biggest fan : )

@Rob, so be it...make it longer.

I am inclined to disagree with ANGRY. I have some knowledge when it comes to Muslims for one I have studied it in several classes, second I was married to a muslim of Arab decent. While Angry does bring up some valid points he stated " He could be against universal Islamic law, Jihad, bombings, Fatwa and the forced wearing of the Hijab. He may be, heaven forbid, a good, law abiding, productive, fully contributing, patriotic American citizen that happens to be Muslim... they do exist Lauren." Which could very well be true, but the cloth he wears does stand for political views not religious, therefore,he is more likely to be a muslim who is against American beliefs and practices. We should not judge a book by it's cover, but in these times of political unrest and terrorism happening on a regular basis; we are more inclined to go with the facts presented, by him wearing the cloth it stands out to all that he is what the cloth represents.

Angry said...

To all...

I travel the middle east reasonably frequently as a part of my job, and have conducted my business with people wearing white or read & white shimagh, or if you prefer, keffiyeh. They are worn extensively throughout the region. The black-and-white keffiyeh is a symbol of Palestinian solidarity, and the red-and-white is most strongly associated with Jordan, where it is known as shmagh mhadab. The Jordanian keffiyeh has cotton decorative strings on the sides (see Lauren's pic). It is believed that the bigger these strings, the more value it has and the higher a person’s status. It has been used by Bedouins throughout the centuries and was used as a symbol of honor and tribal identification.

If this guy had a black & white one over his shoulder I would be more inclined to agree with you... but it's not, so my guess is that this guy has Jordanian roots. But I still say that you are concluding all there is to know about him by the scrap of cloth he has, that's bigitry.

Mum-me said...

Seriously? Obama won that? I must be living under a rock this week.

And @Angry - I feel I can say this as a fellow Australian (if you really are from Melbourne) your 'comment name' should be Biased, or even Stupid. It suits you better. Oh, and learn how to spell.

Lauren said...

Ah yes, Angry self espouses that IT travels to the Middle East a lot of times. IT knows better than you or I. Oh yes. I'm pissing in my pants folks. This is like listening to Arafat defend terrorism.

I have worked extensively FOR Israelis, live amongst Jews who come from the Middle East, have sat in lectures where Nonie Darwish came to speak amongst many other experts who come from within that community.

So thanks anyway for the Angry effort. It's like having my very own Moore right here. The Cubans showed me wonderful hospitals so it must be true. Meh! You don't have a clue about the truth. You don't understand their culture.

But if what you say about your business travels is true then it certainly explains a lot about your hatred for America, much of which I've not posted here because it's so offensive and horrid and biased. You do business with those who wear this stuff proudly? These western hating, Islam forcing people. Horrid!!! Just horrid.

There are some Muslims that aren't like these people. But those aren't the ones YOU do business with. You should be ashamed of what YOU do for the almighty dollar!

Angry said...

There are some Muslims that aren't like these people. That statement right there, Lauren, is exactly what I tried to say in my first comment... so why isn't this guy one of those Muslims? According to you there are good ones and bad ones, so why have you decided, based on this pic alone, that this guy is a bad one? That's all I've been trying to say all along.

You should be ashamed of what YOU do for the almighty dollar! My company has an office in Denver and I spend more time doing business in the US than in the Middle East. Does that fact add to my shame? And based on your logic about travelling the Middle East, who do I hate because I travel in the US?

And @Mum-me: Name calling and pointing out that I'm a bad speller, hardly a good argument.

Lauren said...

It's impossible to debate with Angry. I let It's comments up to let IT's own words show the ignorance. I can't debate with a moron and that is what Angry is.

I've already answered the question but Angry thinks we are stupid here on this blog and that if Angry keeps asking the same question IT can distract from the answer and issue.

Not only did I answer the question so did other commenters.

Mum-me didn't name call, she wrote a witty response to your blogger name.

Angry you are very ignorant. Trying to equate you sometimes doing business in the US to the fact that you do business with terrorists, shaking their hands makes ZERO sense. It's a typical libtard try at an "argument" and only stupid people who aren't educated and well-read fall for that garbage.

Angry said...

Kimberly's put up some good points. She says that the guy is more likely to be a Muslim against American beliefs and practices. By saying 'more likely' she recognises that there is also a chance that he may not be of those beliefs. And she goes on to say that we shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Or in other words, we shouldn't judge a person by this pic.

At least Kimberly is prepared to discuss it inteligently instead of stooping to name calling and wild accusations about who I am and what I do, which has nothing to do with the question at hand.

Keffiyeh=political statement.

Mum-me said...

@Angry - I wasn't offering an argument. It was a personal opinion. I am honest and sensible enough to keep out of arguments when I know very little facts on the subject.

Re: spelling. It is one of my faults I guess - I think if you are going to accuse someone of something as heavy as bigotry you should really be able to spell it.
