The words in quotes are those of the Muslim Mayor of Rotterdam, reported in full yesterday by Tim Worstall and making an edited appearance in Boris Johnson's Telegraph column this morning. Of course one has to very careful in listening to what the politicians think yesterday was all about; Cameron for example can't bring himself to say 'Islamic extremism' so uses the code word 'fanatical' for 'Islamic' whenever he speaks. London's sexually incontinent mayor is not so shy, being clear it's Islamic terrorism and jihadism that threatens us. And he's not too bothered, he says, by all this civil liberties guff getting in the way of listening to our electronic words to find them.
Boris is also right in stating that very few have actually seen the most offensive Charlie Hebdo cartoons. Certainly the MSM is not printing them, and many are absent from the Mahommed Cartoons Archive . You can get a flavour of them by searching charb and mahommed in google images. Be warned; there's a lot of buggery and explicit homo sex featuring the prophet, sometimes together with Jesus, the Buddha and old Yahweh. And no, we won't be reproducing any of them here - on the grounds both of taste and that that they're not particularly funny, nor are they intended to be. They are intended to provoke and offend. That is exactly what they do. As an enlightened Christian, I can view them and shrug them off - even a depiction of Mohammed fellating Christ on the cross - as meaningless, without rancour. Primitive Muslims are not so well advanced. Like animist African tribesmen waving their spears about when the missionary pulls down their fetish stick, they get a bit exercised.
But then that's what our society, our Europe, is about. And as the Mayor of Rotterdam says, if you don't like it, fuck off.
