Allah Conquers the United Nations
From the desk of Paul Belien on Mon, 2006-02-20 15:15
Logos are usually not chosen at random but rather for the message they convey, though sometimes mistakes seem to happen.
Logos can easily offend people, certainly those who have a very broad definition of blasphemy. This is the Arabic script for "Allah." It resembles a flame with five tongues that increase in size:
Six years ago Nike had to recall 800,000 shoes because Muslims took offense at the logo on a certain brand of its models. According to "offended" Muslims the logo could be read as "Allah." Below is the shoe logo:
Last year Burger King had to change the logo of an ice-cream cone because, according to "offended" Muslims it could be read as "Allah."
The chain is being forced to spend thousands of pounds redesigning the lid with backing from The Muslim Council of Britain. It apologised and said: “The design simply represents a spinning ice-cream cone.” The offending lid was spotted in a branch in Park Royal last week by business development manager Rashad Akhtar, 27, of High Wycombe. He was not satisfied by the decision to withdraw the cones and has called on Muslims to boycott Burger King. He said: “This is my jihad. How can you say it is a spinning swirl? If you spin it one way to the right you are offending Muslims.”
Below is the ice-cream logo and the Arabic script for Allah:
In 1987 the United Nations changed the logo of its Human Rights Commission from a flame (below, on the left) into something (below, on the right) resembling..., well, that looks strikingly like the Arabic word "Allah."
So far, there have been no protests from "offended" Muslims, though the logo definitely looks more like "Allah" than the Nike and Burger King logos.
Was the change in the UN Human Rights logo a coincidence? Some specialists do not think so. Apparently it may have been a high-ranking Muslim UN official who changed the logo. It is perhaps as much a coincidence as last week's common declaration signed by EU Foreign Policy Coordinator Javier Solana, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the Secretary-General of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC). The three men pledged to rewrite the UN Human Rights Charter to “protect the sanctity of religions and the prophets.” About the uproar in Muslim countries regarding the Danish Muhammad cartoons they said: “We understand the deep hurt and widespread indignation felt in the Muslim world. The freedom of the press [...] should respect the beliefs and tenets of all religions.”

Islam and Women
Submitted by ChrisBKK on Tue, 2006-02-21 06:09.
A lot of the oppression is Traditional rather than dictated by Islam. But there are still sufficient refences to how women are looked upon. Here is a bit from Surah 2 Verse 282, covering contracts:
"Let his guardian dictate faithfully, and get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her"
Notice the words "other" and "her". That basically classify Women as halfwits. What about the man errs and the two Women reminding him?

ChrisBKK I was married to a arab muslim asshole for a little over 7 years.. there is nothing you can tell me about the traditions, the culture or the religion. Though it may not compltely be a form of the religion that the oppression is there.. the religion and sharia law enforces it. In point of fact.. for a women married into a Sheik's household with money even.. I can say you rank somewhere between the greyhound and the flocks of goats, horses, camels etc.. get the drift. If you have provided a male heir you rise considerably.. but make no mistake you will never be as high as his favorite racing horse.. or his falcon. IF he has a harem, I would say the best position is to be the Great Wife.. she can control some things.. not a lot..but some.. never be the last wife, unlewss youare the hottest thing on earth.. and even those can be replaced *wink* especially in the hot bed of intrigue. And NEVER , EVER let them try to sell you .. that these are old and outmodded ways of doing things.. The whole area is OLD and OUTMODED! No the religious leaders, the culture and the traditions are bound together. A man's wife.. IS his PROPERTY!

I was suprised when I read things I never lived with my family or my husband as a muslim woman I had the best treatment in the whole world by my dad and my family . Dad was very proud of me ( he passed away,God bless him)
I had a wonderful husband who treat with royalty and respect he cannot do anything related to our life without consulting with me. that is the case with my all freinds and all people in our comunnity( muslim community). Men connot buy or sell or do anything if the wives don't agree period!!!and that based on our religion to respect women and treat her with royalty. even men has no power to ask his wife to clean or cook but he can ask her to take care of the kids becasue cleaning can be done by anyone but taking care of kids needs parents to be involved.If you look to some cultures as in eastren part of the earth or in some countries in the middle east those don't reflect Islam, it reflects traditional cultures, you see people in China or Korea or even in westren countries treating woman as a shit .I thinks treating women based on the back ground of the man of his culture and his family

YOU HAVE IT BACKWARDS. THOSE ARE NATIONS THAT ARE FAR SUPERIOR TO YOUR MUSLIM COUNTRY OR MUSLIM CULTURE. SOUNDS LIK YOU ARE A SELF RIGHTEOUS LYING RACIST!
remember china has over 1.5 billion and standing army at their call if they mobilize their reserves to over 200 million and north korea alone has over 4 million and classifed as special forces.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY WILL DO TO YOUR ISLAMIC COUNTRIES IF YOU OFFEND THEM AND STAR A WAR,
IT WILL BE THE END OF THE MUSLIM RACE PERIOD, TOTAL EXTERMINATION AND ANNIHILATION.
OFFENDING ASIANS IS AN ACT OF WAR AND YOU AND YOUR HATE MUSLIMS BY THE WORLD WILL FIND YOURSELVES DESTROYED BY THE WORLD ESPECIALLY WITH THESE COUNTRIES.
MUSLIM ARE VERY FORTUNATE THAT EUROPE AND U.S. TOLERATE YOUR RACIST AND DECADENT SOCIETIES AND YOUR PATHETIC RELIGION CALLED ISLAM
THE ISLAMIC CULTURE WILL EVENTUALLY BE DESTROYED BY THE WORLD IF YOU CONTINUE YOUR ANTAGONISTIC AND MURDEROUS RELIGION.
HOW DARE YOU SPEAK INSULTS TO CHINESE AND KOREANS WHO CAN EASILY DESTORY ALL MUSLIM COUNTRIES. YOU MIGHT WANT TO RECALL YOUR INSULTS BEFORE THEY DECLARE DECIDE TO NUKE YOUR MUSLIMS COUNTRIES OR INVADE AND BEHEAD ALL YOUR MALES WITH THEIR KUNG FU AND HAWARANGDO BROAD SWORDS!
Surah 5 Verse 33
Submitted by ChrisBKK on Tue, 2006-02-21 05:54.
I guess that I will not get an answer because the english translation is very clear with no room for translation errors or mis-interpretation. Here is the text:
The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;
That is the verse that every islam extremist refers to, after they have declared somebody (person, group, or country) "Enemy of Islam". The same verse is being used against the Danish Cartoonists, Jyllands Postens management, and all the papers that re-published the cartoons.

Re: 30% of Western Women Are Depressed Why?
Submitted by A New Believer on Tue, 2006-02-21 06:08.
maybe because they know 90% of their Eastern sisters are slaves to a bunch of hypocritical, self centered, egotictical, over critical,slovenly, narcisstic, spoiled, inconsiderate, pampered, wretched louses, sometimes known as lifesupport systems for a man's reporductive gland...but most commonly known as muslim men....You think? Hmmm!
Western women have their problems also, but we do not have to marry people others chose for us nor do we constantly worry about what will be taken away from us. There are a million reason. Perhaps we have so many choices to make and things are not always perfect.. But therein lies the crux of the matter...we HAVE the CHOICES..We MAKE Them! So whether we are happy or sad, unahppy and forlorn or just doing fine thank you.. these are OUR decisions and our consequences not ones chosen for us.. when you get there give us a call maybe we will come and commiserate about the various choices. Until then, worry more about yourselves.. because your choices are nonexistent...mohammedism or islam what is the differnce...none.

If you wish the answer to that do not trip lightly to a website link..ask ANY WESTERN WOMAN married to a muslim for over 5 years! Then start trolling through the shar'ia divorce court cases.. that will wipe that smug smirk from your face. Or may you prefer having people hold you down while they cut away from your body a special and specific organ of female anatomy, that muslim men feel you are beter off without.( and without the benefit of anaesthetic I might usually add!) Honestly, You do not see any of them hacking off any essential body parts of theirs do you?

Tell that to the men of Islam! They use islam as their source of authority to dominate and abuse women!!
emeda30, why have you not commented on Von S's video above?
All you do is link to Islamic sources that are so vague and cumbersome relative to the question that nothing is achieved.
The woman had very strong points and yet the male commentator's only real answers were indicating she has a lawsuit against her and asking her if she has issues with men.
Is this an example of the best defense is a good offense?

You are reprinting propaganda and revisionist Islamic history. USC/MSA is the Muslim Students Association of University of Southern California.
Why is it that there is hardly, if any true critical analysis of Muslim history from Muslims themselves? Have you ever noticed how if there is an unpleasant truth about Mohammed or Islamic history...they just change it to suit themselves. Worse...they try and convince everybody that their history is something different.
Thank you Emeda30, but I will look elsewhere for a true accounting of Islamic history.
Besides...this article was not about Islamic history...it is about the UN and the Islamic symbol of Allah. Can you not stick to the subject at hand?
Does that look like an Allah symbol to you?

"First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists but I was not a Trade Unionist and I did not speak out.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Spinning Ice Cream Swirl Cones are Islamic Offenses!
Submitted by A New Believer on Mon, 2006-02-20 19:55.
Enough is enough! This is NOT a religion! This is bullshit in its most elevated form.. Where was this little muslim turd raised then. He lived in the West all this time in Wycombe even and NO ONE has ever bought HIM A SOFT SERVE SWIRL CONE! And if he has eaten one then I demand that the MULLAHS and IMAMS have him PUT TO DEATH IMMEDIATELY! For violating the word of GOD and ALLah with his OBSCENE tongue! It is the outline of a soft serve swirl ice cream cone. Any child of 1, any person of limited mental faculties could tell him that. Even a half blind elderly person of 98 could see it as well. There has to be an end to the bullying, posturing, simpering mentality of a bunch of islamofascists with no regard to the rest of the world. If that is the case, I shall most assuredly admonish the dog not to pee in the snow in the wrong way.. it might be interpreted as islamic writing. Or my mate he may have change the sequence of movements, lest that too be interpreted as islamic writing * Raising an eyebrow* Be wary O western men, lest next your thrusts and movements also be interpreted as islamic renderings! We must then see about getting christian zealots the next time the face of Jesus is discovered in Chihuahua, Mexico or San Antonio, Texas to put to death the peasant women..who shrugs her shoulders and continues to cook the tortilla so that her starving children may be fed, instead of having it posted it on the internet or placed in a shrine!
I had no idea that the islamicists of the world had relegated themselves to the ministering of symbols with all the intensity of the south sea islander cargo cults that erupted across the south pacific from unspoiled natives being awed, amazed and terrified as well as thankful for the dropped goods and cargo that descended from the skies during WWII.
And another things.. Burger King did not invent the soft serve swirl.. There was Tastee Freeze and Dairy Queen long before them according..to my sister and she should know, being the President of her own Corporation, and a financial wizarddess to boot! (as well as having sampled many of both wares on purely degustatory facting finding mission of teenagers long ago)
When muslims have something to say worth hearing, saying or thinking..let them bring it up on an agenda.. But anything truly STUPID, INANE, ASININE and PURSLANE such as this, make them go home and stay there never to venture forth again! If Prince Charles and Great Britian champion this sort of bullshit! Then drop them from the EU so they can become a muslim nation that they seem to be striving towards doing so.
