Random House Pulls The Plug On “The Jewel of Medina”

How is Islam Not Already Controlling the USA? @YouTube

Publisher Random House has pulled a novel about Islam over protest fears
Random House, the American publisher, has withdrawn a novel about the Prophet Mohammed’s child bride, fearing it could “incite acts of violence”.

08 Aug 2008

“The Jewel of Medina,” a debut novel by journalist Sherry Jones, 46, was due to be published next Tuesday and an eight-city publicity tour had been scheduled.
The novel traces the life of A’isha from her engagement to Mohammed, when she was six, until the prophet’s death.
Jones said that she was shocked to learn in May, that publication would be postponed indefinitely.
“I have deliberately and consciously written respectfully about Islam and Mohammed … I envisioned that my book would be a bridge-builder,” said Jones.
Random House deputy publisher Thomas Perry said in a statement the company received “cautionary advice not only that the publication of this book might be offensive to some in the Muslim community, but also that it could incite acts of violence by a small, radical segment.”
He added: “In this instance we decided, after much deliberation, to postpone publication for the safety of the author, employees of Random House, booksellers and anyone else who would be involved in distribution and sale of the novel.”
Jones, who has just completed a sequel to the novel examining her heroine’s later life, is free to sell her book to other publishers, Perry said.
The decision has sparked controversy on Internet blogs and in academic circles. Some compared the controversy to previous cases where portrayals of Islam were met with violence.
Protests and riots erupted in many Muslim countries in 2006 when cartoons, one showing the Prophet Mohammed wearing a turban resembling a bomb, appeared in a Danish newspaper. At least 50 people were killed and Danish embassies attacked.
British author Salman Rushdie’s 1988 book “The Satanic Verses” was met with riots across the Muslim world. Rushdie was forced into hiding for several years after Iran’s then supreme religious leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, proclaimed a death edict, or fatwa, against him.
Jones, who has never visited the Middle East, spent several years studying Arab history and said the novel was a synthesis of all she had learned.
“They did have a great love story,” Jones said of Mohammed and A’isha, who is often referred to as Mohammed’s favorite wife. “He died with his head on her breast.”

In order to make her research as accurate and authentic as possible, journalist Sherry learned Arabic, studied scholarly works about Aisha’s life.

I found this interesting because of the four religions in this top 20 list, only Islam’s outrage has resulted in death.

Here’s the tally,

* Christianity, blasphemed 13 times, zero deaths.
* Buddhism, blasphemed once, zero deaths.
* Sikhs, blasphemed once, zero deaths.
* Islam, blasphemed 5 times, 140 deaths.

Do the math.

Belgium: Police Protection for a 17th Century Pulpit

Thanks to the “Religion of Peace”

This quote from “Rudy” comes to mind.

“No one, and I mean no one, comes into our house and pushes us around.”

Police Protection for “Mohammed Pulpit”

Brussels Journal

Belgian police is protecting a 17th century pulpit in the Flemish town of Dendermonde. The pulpit in the Catholic church of Our Lady dates from 1685, two years after the battle of Vienna when the Christian armies of the Polish King John III Sobieski defeated the Turks poised to overrun Europe. The sculpted wooden pulpit, made by Mattheus van Beveren, depicts a man subdued by angels and represents the triumph of Christianity over Islam. The man is generally thought to be Mohammed. He is holding a book which is generally assumed to be the Koran.

Two years ago, on April 16, 2006, during the height of the Danish cartoon affair, this website published a photo of the pulpit to show that there is a long tradition of depicting Mohammed in European iconography. Last Friday the Turkish newspaper Yeniçag reprinted our picture on its front page with the caption “Stop this hideous insult.” Yeniçag demands that Belgium remove the pulpit. The paper writes that “We have had the crusades and now they are still trying to humiliate us. This is as bad as the Danish cartoons and Geert Wilders’s Fitna movie in the Netherlands. Even Pope Benedict does nothing to stop these humiliations.

Since Friday, we have received threats while the authorities in Belgium, which has a large population of Turkish immigrants, fear that the pulpit and the church may be attacked. The Belgian press reported today that the police is guarding Dendermonde’s Our Lady church to prevent vandalism to church and pulpit.[…]

[…]Meanwhile, radical Muslims in Italy are still demanding the destruction of an early Renaissance fresco in Bologna’s Church of San Petronio, painted by Giovanni da Modena in 1415. The fresco depicts Mohammed being tortured in Hell.

You may also enjoy browsing the “Mohammed Image Archive” @ Zombie Time
Depictions of Mohammed Throughout History
The Mohammed Image Archive is a compendium of images that depict Mohammed (the 7th-century founder of Islam), spanning all historical periods, cultures and genres.

The inspiration for this Archive came from the global controversy over the publication of Mohammed cartoons in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, and the need for a comprehensive and even-handed look at the wide variety of Mohammed depictions in Islamic and Western societies from the Middle Ages until today. It will remain online as a resource for those interested in freedom of expression. (Please note that the Arabic name “Mohammed” has over the years been transliterated into Western languages with several different spellings — some of which you’ll encounter on this site — including Mahomet, Muhammad, and Mohamed.)

Out of time: Radical Islam Taking Over Europe & West

“Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil”
– Thomas Mann

Great news clip on islamisation of Europe. If these statistics don’t wake you up, I don’t know what will. Radical Islam is a grave threat to Europe, there is no denying this. Europe as we know it will be taken by Muslims within the next 100 years. It’s time we stop being politically correct with Islam and confront it for what it is.

Denmark: Muslim Tortures Woman For “Being Christian”

Cross posted from ‘Western Resistance

Another contribution from our Danish friend and correspondent, Wiking.

shed.jpg

This is the shed where the woman was held captive and tortured

A 19 year old woman managed Sunday evening to escape from her torturer, a Danish citizen of Lebanese background.

She had been held captive for 9 days in a shed in the Sydhavnen district of Copenhagen where she had been beaten with an electric cable and subjected to other acts of violence by her boyfriend, a 19 year old Danish citizen from Lebanon. Sunday afternoon she managed to break out of her prison, climbed a fence and broke into a store, where she found a telephone and called her family.

The woman is now in hospital with extensive body damages. She had received almost nothing to eat and drink during the nine days. She has bruises from the beating and burns from cigarettes and from molten plastic that has been dripped onto her body. Her front teeth are knocked out, she has bleedings in both eyes, she has stab wounds all over her body and possibly a broken mandible. Part of her hair is burned away and her finger and toe nails are damaged, probably caused by pliers according to the police. A piece of her right thumb is missing.

She has extensive burn lesions on her legs from previous episodes of violence. The burns are caused by boiling water according to her own statement.

The violence has taken place over a period of one year, but has escalated drastically during the last month, according to the girl. The man threatened to kill her family if she reported him. Also, he has forbidden her to speak to her mother, because she is a Christian.

She is now under police protection, from fear that the family of the young man will try to harm her.

The full story (in Danish) comes from Jyllands-Posten
