Now there is a demonization of the Muslim community, so we have to speak up to prevent something like the Holocaust from happening. — Taji Mustafa, a spokesman for the Muslim Action Committee.

Whose playing the holocaust card now, eh?

Muslims gathered in Trafalgar square Saturday to show even more outrage over the cartoon images. Here’s another great quote from a participant, one Younas Yousas:

Their freedom of speech should be restricted because it hurts our religion. At the end of the day everyone needs to respect others’ religions. And we should strive for peace.

Classic. Last two quotes, both seen on placards at the demonstration:

Europe, you will pay. Your 9/11 is on its way.

and a less poetic:

Behead the one who insults the prophet.

Thanks Jpost for giving Muffti a chuckle.

  • A little mistake guys in what you have blogged, the fanatics who had the placards saying “Europe, you will pay. Your 9/11 is on its way” was a different demo, that was two weeks ago.

    These guys kept their placards less insulting to avoid being arrested.

  • What holocaust? I heard that never happened. *insert eye rolling here*

  • We need a new definition of chutzpah:

    Chutzpah is the quality enshrined in a religion which flies planes into buildings and then yells “Holocaust!” when its victims get angry.

    So, you don’t like our freedom of speech, huh, Mohammed?

    You don’t like it, you can back to Saudi friggin’ Arabia, you and the friggin’ camel you rode in on.

  • I suggest to the Muffti that for reasons of amusement and maybe enlightenment he refer to the work of S. Morris Engel.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S._Morris_Engel

    Especially his book called Analyzing Informal Fallacies. I got to read this book from my brother’s, a graduate in Rhetoric from UC Berkeley, textbook collection. At the time of the printing of that book, Engel was a Philosophy Professor at USC.

    Engel presents and organizes, demonstrates and proves many common fallicies.

    To quote

    Clear and precise expression is a necessity for coherent communicative debate. The informal fallacies of ambiguity, presumption, and relevance are important enough in logic to demand an in-depth study. Here is a book that examines these fallacies that play havoc with our thinking.
