11th Time Lucky

A lawyer married a woman who had previously divorced ten husbands. 

On their wedding night, she told her new husband, “Please be gentle, I’m still a virgin.” 

“What??” said the puzzled groom. “How can that be if you’ve been married ten times?”  

“Well, Husband #1 was a sales representative: he kept telling me how great it was going to be. 

Husband #2 was in software services: he was never really sure how it was supposed to function, but he said he’d look into it and get back to me. 

Husband #3 was from field services: he said everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn’t get the system up. 

Husband #4 was in telemarketing: even though he knew he had the order, he didn’t know when he would be able to deliver. 

Husband #5 was an engineer: he understood the basic process but wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art method.  

Husband #6 was from finance and administration: he thought he knew how, but he wasn’t sure whether it was his job or not. 

Husband #7 was in marketing: although he had a nice product, he was never sure how to position it. 

Husband #8 was a psychologist: all he ever did was talk about it. 

Husband #9 was a gynaecologist: all he did was look at it. 

Husband #10 was a stamp collector: all he ever did was… God! I miss him! But now that I’ve married you, I’m really excited!” 

“Good,” said the new husband, “but why?” 

“Oh, you’re a lawyer. This time I know I’m gonna get screwed!”

Gazans and Iranians, Two Entirely Different Reasons

Beyond the Cusp

If even reported on, the mainstream media will do what they are able to cast the Iranian protester as a small and radical fragment of the society attempting to destroy the natural order while on the same page casting the Hamas rioters will be shown as peaceful human rights demonstrators just attempting to rectify wrongs. One can only wonder how the media can expect anybody to believe a word they say when they are so consistently on the wrong side of every issue. We have spoken about the Gazan situation lately and these articles can be found on our main page and going back over the past six weeks, so we will simply update a few aspects of what has happened over the last week and then talk more in depth on the Iranian situation.

The rioters in Gaza along the border, acting on the promptings from Hamas and Islamic…

Switzerland Welcomes Radicalization

Quote

Switzerland has just rejected a proposed law preventing mosques from accepting money from abroad, and compelling them to declare where their financial backing comes from and for what purpose the money will be used. According to the proposal, imams also would have been obliged to preach in one of the Swiss national languages.

While the proposal narrowly passed in the lower house of parliament already in September 2017, the upper house recently rejected it. The proposal was modeled on regulations in Austria, where already in 2015, a law banning foreign funding of religious groups was passed. The Austrian law aims to counter extremism by requiring imams to speak German, prohibiting foreign funding for mosques, imams and Muslim organizations in Austria, and stressing the precedence of Austrian law over Islamic sharia law for Muslims living in the country.

The Federal Council, which constitutes the federal government of Switzerland, was also against the proposal, and claimed that it constituted ‘discrimination’: “We must not discriminate against Muslim communities and imams and put them under general suspicion,” Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga said. The Federal Council noted that in Austria, Islam is officially recognized, whereas it is not in Switzerland. According to the Swiss government, therefore, the model applied in Austria does not apply to Switzerland, as “One cannot demand obligations without rights”. Instead, the Federal Council evidently believes that the risks posed by extremist Islamist preachers and communities can be combated within existing law.

There are approximately 250 mosques in Switzerland, but the authorities do not know who finances them. The authorities have no jurisdiction to collect data on the financing of Muslim associations and mosques apart from exceptional cases in which internal security is threatened. By rejecting the proposal compelling mosques to disclose who finances them, the Swiss authorities can now remain willfully blind.

Turkey: Erdogan’s “Holy War” Obsession

Quote

When non-Muslims deny Muslim minorities the rights that Muslim-majority countries systematically deny non-Muslim minorities, extremist Muslims in Turkey seem to have the habit of threatening non-Muslim lands with holy war.

“Soon religious wars will break out in Europe. You are taking Europe toward an abyss. That’s the way it’s going,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s foreign minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, predicted in a 2017 speech. The minister was angry with the European states that had banned Turkish Islamist political shows in their territories.

On June 10, Erdoğan said: “These measures taken by the Austrian prime minister are, I fear, leading the world toward a war between the cross and the crescent.”

So, once again, we are hearing promises of holy war, and an angry Islamist threatening a Christian state because a Christian state had decided to close down seven mosques and expel some 60 Turkish-funded imams as part of a crackdown on extremist Islam.
