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Random House, the American publisher, has withdrawn a novel about the Prophet Mohammed’s child bride, fearing it could “incite acts of violence”.

“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.

The Blasphemy Game

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.

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.

Amsterdam: Bilal Bajaka Attacks Dutch Police – Muslim Youths Riot

Suicide attack in Amsterdam @ Klein Verzet
Last Sunday a 22 year old Islamic terrorist named Bilal Bajaka walked into a police station in Amsterdam and directly started knifing the first police officers he saw. As all Dutch police officers are armed, this was clearly a suicide mission. During his mission he was shot dead by one of the attacked officers. Who her self and a colleague narrowly escaped dead her self after being stabbed in breast, face, neck and back. Their lives could only be saved after a night long surgery in the hospital.

Bilal the Dutch-Moroccan terrorist was well know with the police. He was a known felon who was known to have contact with other, now convicted, Dutch Islamic terrorists. But he was never charged due to lack of evidence. He was however a violent convicted felon who already at age 13 was convicted for attacking someone with a screwdriver and wounding that persons head (for which he was convicted and did community service). Later he was convicted for multiple other crimes, but in the Netherlands that does not add up to very long prison sentences. From April of this year, he was locked up, by court order, in a psychiatric clinic for his “suicidal” tendencies (Which of course has nothing to do with his study of the Koran). But in August he was suddenly miraculously cured and was released. But this Ramadan seems to be just to much for him.

But this attack does not stand on it’s own. After the end of Ramadan, there are lots of press reports of excessive violence even murders committed by the followers of the religion of peace. But of course the media downplays that fact, just coincidence. Thus yesterdays terrorist attack of Bilal is certainly not reported as a suicide mission.

We are not at war you know.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
