Tolerant Islam

Once again we see a caving in to an intolerant and repressive faith. The faith of Islam. Amidst protests by Muslims over a picture with two well dressed classy British fashion advisors {a mosque is in the background}, the media promptly issued an apology and pulled the add.

From Israeli Culture
Newspaper ads for the "Trinny Susannah Do Israel" show have sparked a row among Muslims, as they show the two British fashion advisors dressed in immodest clothing against the backdrop of the al-Aqsa Mosque and Western Wall.

Channel 10 apologized for the incident on Wednesday evening and promised to change the ads immediately.

The Islamic Movement's al-Aqsa institution association slammed Channel 10 for publishing a picture of the two women wearing strapless dresses against the backdrop of the mosque.
The association released a statement saying that "the publication of such abomination against the backdrop of an image of the al-Aqsa Mosque, in order to promote a television program on fashion and clothes, is a blatant violation and a desecration of Islam's holy mosque. This is an insult to more than one and a half billion Muslims in the world."...

Let me see... If I have this straight it is an abomination for British fashion advisors to pose with a backdrop of a Muslim mosque. However, it is okay for this same peace loving tolerant religion {major sarcasm} to call for the extermination of the Jewish people. As in the declaration of much of the Arab and Persian world that Israel doesn't exit.

Okay, I get it. And were Channel 10 rational with even the proverbial b**ls of a gnat they would have told al-Aqsa institution association to go pound sand.

  1. and the only reason for the apology is the ignorance of the pc doctrine thus showing how flawed that idea has become

  2. Part of me says that Channel 10 showed a great amount of courtesy for courtesy's sake, and the other part of me says Channel 10 should have shot back with: Why? What are you going to do if we don't pull it? Shoot another mortar shell into Israel? Oh, wait, you did that last week.

    The descendants of Ishmael. pfft.

  3. Gripper - Agreed. But I think it goes even deeper than that.

  4. Donald - I felt at one time that Israel may well be the salvation of the western culture and values.

    I am beginning to wonder at this point.
