I try to be a good Stoic, really I do, but I'm not finding it easy.

Some day you must write something on the stoic understanding of Islam.

"LONDON Feb 7, 2006 (AP)— A jury in Britain convicted radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri on Tuesday of fomenting racial hatred and inciting followers to kill non-Muslims.

Al-Masri, 47, the former imam at London's Finsbury Park mosque, was also found guilty of possessing a terrorist document as well as threatening or abusive recordings.

Britain's best-known Islamist orator, Al-Masri could receive a maximum sentence of life in prison.

The jury of seven men and five women found al-Masri guilty on seven of nine charges of soliciting murder. He was also convicted on two of four charges of stirring racial hatred."

Mark, why don't the Democrats "ask their buddies" to do something to quell the violence?

Syl said...

Well, proving Mark is wrong about Iraq connection to Mad Mullahs rather than a simpler Shia people to people connection, Sistani has come out with his take on the cartoons.

"We strongly denounce and condemn this horrific action,"

But he made no call for protests and suggested that militant Muslims were partly to blame for
distorting Islam's image.

Truepeers, first i'd have to develop a Stoic understanding of islam. My knowledge of islam is limited to having seen a bunch of Sinbad movies and reading the Rubaiyat.

Mark, I'm not upset that they're reading it, I'm ... annoyed with the whole cartoon thing and with the appearance that they're checking out even little bitty blogs that might have the cartoons up.

Eric Blair said...

Heh. My understanding of Islam comes mostly from Medieval and early modern military history.

From Yarmuk, Nehaward, the siege of Constantinople, and Manikert, to Arsuf and the Horns of Hattin, to Nicopolis, Mohacs, the siege of Malta, Constantinople(again) and Lepanto, to the Siege of Vienna and Zenta.

Who was attacking who in the most of those battles?

Pretty much tells me all I need to know.

Buddy Larsen said...

Eric, you can go on back to Marathon, Thermopylae, the burning of Athens, and Salamis--and never miss a beat.

Philly Enquirer--remembering the meadow in eastern Pennsylvania on 911?

Muslim gal shoots straight

All you need to know is the extent of the Roman Empire in the Third Century AD

Just in case some passing Saudi is out there: your mother is a camel.

I know I know that is so uncool of me.

My understanding of Islam is based mostly on people with guns taking embassy and terrorizing people, people with bombs blowing people up, people with planes blowing people up, and people burning flags and acting stupid because someone somewhere failed to SUBMIT.

I hope Iraq makes it, I really do, but if they manage to survive and create a functioning state it will be inspite of and not because of their relgion.

If that offends anyone I am past the point of caring.

Peter UK said...

The Imams have been faking the evidence Perhaps an ayatollah should have a word.

Syl said...

Well, a couple of things.

It may simply be a check to see who to add to their prohibited list...if the visit was 'official'.

Or, remember, it could be someone like Saudi Jeans.

We don't really know very much, do we. I just learned this morning that it is only sunni's who don't allow depictions of mr M. The shia do. And there are depictions of mr. M. in museums in Iran!

Wow--if someone could take photos of those paintings and illustrations exhibited in museums in Iran, it would really embarrass mr. Adhmedijihad wouldn't it?
