Apologies for the lack of posting but life happens. One of the more disturbing things I've noted in the Muslim blogosphere is the rush to issue what I call an "instant condemnation." Now lets be clear on this, we all condemn acts of terrorism no matter who does it. That being said, I don't see the reason or need to give an "explanation" every time something happens in some part of the Muslim world, and by anxiously jumping the gun we're taking responsibility for actions which have nothing to do with us or our deen, and beyond our control.
I refuse to march in lockstep for the convenience of others, and if you're too incompetent, ignorant and afraid to understand interpret world events outside of pre-conditioned black and white media paradigms, thats your problem. Its not my job to sugar coat the reality of the world we live in. This is not an angry rant or a rejection of da'wa efforts, but its time Muslims started to show some dignity, self-respect and emotional maturity. Theres no need to put on a minstrel show for anybody. If you're a judeofascist or shabbos goy, trust me, I will never appease you and intend to be a thorn in your side. Thats just the way I roll.
Nor should we react to an event unless we have all the facts. If a deranged father kills his daughter in Canada, theres no need to offer some inept thesis on "Islamic reform" and some honor killing(which is nothing more then a fancy orientalistic term for ethnisizing domestic violence in Eastern communities) conspiracy theory. Tell that obese, punjabi, misanthrope Tarek Fatah and his fellow neocon bastards to shut their behinds up before using the murder of a young woman to push their own political agenda. I will not comment on the Aqsa Pervez case until the full facts are in.
Then comes the crocodile tear factory for feudal princess Benazir Bhutto from the usual suspects. Reading the papers, one wonders if we are talking about the same person. The fact is that her entire record consisting of widespread corruption, murder and torture(kufi tip : Indigo Jo) has been totally white washed for a fantasy Hollywood scenario of being a "brave, courageous woman who gave her life for democracy" in Pakistan. My only regret is that Benazir was not tried for her crimes and thrown in the slammer along with Musharraf, Altaf Hussein, and her husband with the key thrown away. Too bad that some of us have memories which go beyond 2 weeks, and wont shed crocodile tears for the photogenic puppet progeny of mafioso style political crime families. Lets condemn the violence but refrain from ignoring the record.
PS - There was no "top 10 pro-regressive Moslim idiot list" for 2007 simply because that bowel movement disintegrated faster then the pog craze. Don't get me wrong, the gutter snipes are still out there and have sought shelter amongst the usual suspects...but are no longer a factor in the Muslim community(but I'm still watching you T-Fat). I might do a piece of third rate Arab elitist bloggers aka "Uncle Tamers" pretending to be harbingers of "democracy," so any suggestions would be appreciated.
