Gravitas, Pietas, Dignitas, and Surrealism

Today we are trying to spread knowledge everywhere. Who knows if in centuries to come there will not be universities for re-establishing our former ignorance? —Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799)

What will we do with generations of educators-sans culottes who preach self-indulgent hyper-sensitivity to a population of semi-feral middle-class citizens? How is the West going to cope with the re-training we must have to make ourselves great, or even to survive in the face of our collective moral, social, and intellectual melt-down? How many people will see a need in themselves to pursue the lost values of gravitas, dignitas, and pietas? From whence the autodidact rebel?

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister's statement to Palestinians

Ma'an- Ma'an received a statement on Thursday 4 May from the Canadian Foreign Minister, Peter MacKay, in which he wished to clarify his government's position towards the Palestinian people and their government.

Hon. Mr. MacKay said:


The Canadian government acknowledges that the recent Palestinian legislative elections were free and fair. However, acknowledging that fact does not oblige us to agree with or support the new Palestinian government's policies. Canada has every right to modify its own policies and practices in light of disagreements we may have with the policies that other governments adopt. Likewise, the new Palestinian government has a right to modify the policies and practices it has inherited from its predecessors, but must be willing to accept responsibility for the consequences which flow from such decisions.


Who is responsible in a world determined by social conditions? Who, in a world of philistines, will take responsibility not for others but solely for himself? And how many lives and generations lost for want of what any boy should know?

Who will teach? And who wants to know?

In a world-view of irresponsibility, of blame, of infantalisation, and of social engineering, what do we learn? We learn false dichotomies. We learn Noble Savages and Capitalist Exploiters; self-expression and Auschwitz; bin Laden and Bush. We learn sentimentality, false sympathy, and hatred of Modernity. We learn sanctimonious self-pity. We might learn ethnomathematics.


Dawn Ades, Dada and Surrealism might well still be a useful introduction to early 20th century European art. Time passes and it might be 30 years or more since I read it. The history of Dada and Surrealism will be instructive to us here if we look at the effects of the first world war and the aftermath as shown in Dada. Below we have something akin to a Dada joke: an essay of sorts in which I've corrected some of the spelling:

What is Dadaism

Formal Definition: A western European artistic and literary movement (1916-23) that sought the discovery of authentic reality through the abolition of traditional culture and aesthetic forms.

Dada was an art movement that was ostracized from the world of art as it swept through the world like war sweeping though out nations. Dadaism brought about everything new: new ideas, new materials, new directions, and new people. Dada had no uniform characteristics as many other movements in the arts have. Dadaist art can be interpreted by each person how they want to see or read it. Dadaism brings out feelings and emotions in each person dependent upon what he or she is going through at the time.

Art historians who are professionally trained to analyze the styles of art movements and periods have been continually baffled by the contradictions and complexities Dadaism poses towards itself. All those who attempt to analyze the Dadaist movement, to figure out it's breadth and depth all seem to come up short. The meaning and content go far beyond that which can be analyzed by a trained professional.

Dadaism is often mistaken as a myth due to the outrageous and ridiculous ideas put into the art, however it was very real. Dadaism was never expected to last forever, the Dadaists lived in the moment and for the moment, and so did the spirit of Dada. This beautiful form of art is no longer widely practised throughout the world, yet it is still greatly appreciated by many.

Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement that began in neutral Zürich, Switzerland during World War I and peaked from 1916 to 1920. The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature (mainly poetry), theatre, and graphic design, and was characterized by absurdism, nihilism, deliberate irrationality, disillusionment, cynicism, chance, randomness, and the rejection of the prevailing standards in art.

.... The movement was a protest against the barbarism of World War I, the bourgeois interests that Dada adherents believed inspired the war, and what they believed was an oppressive intellectual rigidity in both art and everyday society. The movement influenced later styles, movements and groups including surrealism, Pop Art and Fluxus. Dada was an international movement, and it is difficult to classify artists as being from any one particular country, as they were constantly moving from one place to another.

According to its proponents, Dada was not art — it was "anti-art". For everything that art stood for, Dada was to represent the opposite. Where art was concerned with aesthetics, Dada ignored aesthetics. If art were to have at least an implicit or latent message, Dada strove to have no meaning — interpretation of Dada is dependent entirely on the viewer. If art is to appeal to sensibilities, Dada is to offend. It is perhaps then ironic that Dada became an influential movement in modern art. Dada became a commentary on order and carnage they believed it reaped. Through this rejection of traditional culture and aesthetics they hoped to destroy traditional culture and aesthetics.

Art historians have described Dada as being "in reaction to what many of the artists saw as nothing more than an insane spectacle of collective homicide." Years later, Dada artists described the movement as "a phenomenon bursting forth in the midst of the post-war economic and moral crisis, a savior, a monster, which would lay waste to everything in its path. [It was] a systematic work of destruction and demoralization...In the end it became nothing but an act of sacrilege." Dada was "a revolt against a world that was capable of unspeakable horrors." Reason and logic had led people into the horrors of war; the only route to salvation was to reject logic and embrace anarchy and the irrational.


In 1916, Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Tristan Tzara, Hans Arp, Richard Huelsenbeck, Sophie Täuber;along with others discussed art and put on performances in the Cabaret Voltaire expressing their disgust with the war and the interests that inspired it. By some accounts Dada coalesced on October 6 at the cabaret.

At the first public soiree at the cabaret on July 14, 1916, Ball recited the first manifesto (see text). Tzara, in 1918, wrote a Dada manifesto considered one of the most important of the Dada writings. Other manifestos followed.


Other manifestos did follow, and one should not be surprised to find that at least some of them were in revolt against Dadaism itself, that they were manifestos from committed fascists and Communists. Suffer through Andre Breton, "What is Surrealism" for an example of the totalitarian mind-set that sprang from Dada nihilism.

We saw then the massacre of generations in Europe at the dead hands of mechanics. Machine guns created Dada. As did mustard gas, aeroplane bombings, tanks, and trench warfare. World War One taught Dada to the Lost Generation. We have continued to learn that lesson since. It seems now we know nothing else. It's past time we learn something smart soon.

Less than 100 years ago Europe came close to annihilating itself. Much opinion today and since the war is that World War One shows a crisis of captialism and the failure of Modernity. The Dadaists and those other nihilists of the West examined the causes of the ruin of Europe and concluded that Modernity itself was at fault. Most opted for solutions of totalitarianism. We live with that today. Both the Left and the Right see rigid control of the economy and social life as the only way to govern the masses effectively. In a Dada frenzy of throwing out the values of the prior "Gilded Age" of the decades preceding the War the Dada nihilists replaced those values with fascism. They were mistaken in their analysis of what went wrong. WWI was not a failure of Modernity: it was a failure of Reaction to defeat Modernity. The forces of Reaction rose again in the late 1930s and were again defeated. But the war continues. This war against Modernity continues, and we fight it today as ever. Today our reactionary enemies are our Left dhimmi fascists qua educators. We are taught Dada as epistmology.

The phrase "must be willing to accept responsibility for the consequences which flow from such decisions," is shocking and hateful to the Dada nihilists in the West. That phrase is a pre-war sentiment. Among today's Left dhimmi fascist intellentsia it is a heresy.

In the post-war critique of Modernity we found ourselves in a state of horrified incomprhension. Seeing Modernity as the source of the destruction of Europe lead to and continues to guide us to neo-feudalism. Man, not able to govern himself without resort to total war, must then be made to behave. Man must be tended, infantalised, ruled by the enlightened elite for the good of all. Man, being maleable, must fit into the social conditions made for him by expert social engineers. Man must be managed. He will be fed, clothed, and entertained to keep him docile. The gnostic elites, the Philosopher Kings, will rule and keep good order and world peace. Man must not know of values. He must dismiss the worth of, even the possiblities of, gravitas, pietas, and dignitas.

America, not being a part of this neo-feudalist reaction, is so far at odds with European neo-fascism that America is the sole enemy of control. And even so, too often we are not our own friends. We learn a European hatred of Modernity against our own heritage. Rather than the Progressivism of Roosevelt we learn the neo-feudalism of Surrealism.

It's time we relearn the values of Americanism. It's time to rebel and to teach ourselves again what we used to know. It's time to relearn the ideals of Jefferson and Roosevelt, re-establishing our former ignorance

The Rush to Insanity

There might be some worthwhile comment I could make on the article below but I feel that it says enough on its own for now. Following this, a bit of Nobel wisdom from Jimmy Carter. Both links from Dhimmiwatch.

Egyptian Cleric and Former Islamic Lecturer in the U.S.: "82% of All Attempts to Corrupt Humanity Originate From the Jews"

And saying that UN documents establish this. Anti-Semitic Paranoia Update: "Egyptian Cleric and Former Islamic Lecturer in the U.S. Hazem Sallah Abu Isma'il on Al-Risala TV: Lectures on the Jews' Conflicts With Islam's Prophet Muhammad, Stating U.N. Documents Assert "82% of All Attempts to Corrupt Humanity Originate From the Jews"

"82% of All Attempts to Corrupt Humanity Originate From the Jews"

"The Jews are determined to own the media, in order to control the ears and eyes of the youth. Do you know that all those songs that appear in movies... The percentage of Jewish-produced video clips worldwide, according to statistics from 2003... Jews produce more than 82% of the video clips in the world. The Jews! These are not Islamic statistics, but statistics by the U.N. organization for media, culture, and science. Eighty-two percent of all attempts to corrupt humanity originate from the Jews. You must know this so that we can know what should be done.

Depriving the people of Palestine of their basic human rights just to punish their elected leaders is not a path to peace.

[R.S.:] Where is there established a basic human right to live off the largesse of others while spending all one's time plotting the downfall of a sovereign state?

Innocent Palestinian people are being treated like animals, with the presumption that they are guilty of some crime. Because they voted for candidates who are members of Hamas, the United States government has become the driving force behind an apparently effective scheme of depriving the general public of income, access to the outside world and the necessities of life.

The Price of Philobarbarism

In a post below we show dhimmi Christians praising HAMAS, as usual. They go beyond the cliches of multi-culti grovelling in public and beyond the usual neo-Nazi ranting at shabby meeting halls. The Presbyterians are a wealthy and powerful mainstream church in America and around the world. They play dhimmi and make it work. They play up the victimisation game and use Muslim peasants as their chess pieces. Below we see the end-game in today's news. This is what the Presbyterians have wrought:

The attack on Tuesday's funeral procession left two Fatah members wounded.

At least nine people were hurt, among them five schoolchildren, in an early clash in Gaza City.

Fatah gunmen returned fire, and the nine people were reportedly injured in the crossfire.

Ignorant and primitive peasants are raised to believe the idiocies of the pampered Presbyterians who play a game of murder. The monsters of Protestantism have created the insanity that is Islam today. Presbyterians pimp their children. this is a result:

'We hope the quartet will take the decision to continue with aid,' Saeb Erekat, Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) chief negotiator said.

On the agenda will be a debate whether to transfer funds to pay the salaries of more than 130,000 Palestinian Authority employees who have not received their dues since the Islamic Hamas movement came to power after winning the January 25 elections.

Left dhimmi fascists have infantalised and made mad a world of peasants. The infantalised now depend for the very food they eat on the Left dhimmis they hate and will murder. And the peasants will die too. They are truly victims:

Shelby Steele, White Guilt : How Blacks and Whites Together Destroyed the Promise of the Civil Rights Era.

The Psychology of Victimhood

Dr. Helen Smith

[T]he current dynamic of black anger and the response of white guilt is a destructive combination, doing real harm to the development of African Americans....

Oppression, says Steele, does not push people to rage or revolution. "Anger is acted out by the oppressed only when real weakness is perceived in the oppressor. Anger in the oppressed is a response to perceived opportunity, not to injustice." This makes sense: people who act out angrily usually do so when there is no threat of being punished and every indication that their anger will get them what they want. This is not always such a bad thing, of course, but black anger and the responding white guilt is not the psychological dynamic of freedom. It is a deal between the power hungry left and black leaders who care more about being thrown a bone and offering fake opportunity to their followers than they care about freedom, autonomy and excellence.

White guilt leads to "the vacuum of moral authority that comes from simply knowing that one's race is associated with racism." But according to Steele, once whites have acknowledged historical racism, they lose moral authority over everything having to do with race, equality, social justice and poverty. "The authority they lose transfers to the 'victims' of racism and becomes their great power in society. This is why white guilt is quite literally the same thing as black power." It is also why black anger reinforces white guilt and the circle of victimhood continues.

Case in point: Politicians frequently stir up black anger to gain further points for their party, not for actually doing anything to promote freedom and autonomy for blacks. For example, Sen. Hillary Clinton recently stated that the House of Representatives is being "run like a plantation. " However, it becomes even more obvious after reading Steele's book that Hillary and her ilk are the plantation.

Today's political left, according to Steele, has shifted from the old left approach of individual freedom, principles and responsibility, to the new left of dissociation. This new dissociated left has turned against democratic principles and instead engages in a victim mentality for blacks that keeps them on the plantation. The left's deal is that they will keep throwing out a few bones like affirmative action, as long as blacks will allow themselves to be reduced to their race and the left can take moral authority for "helping" them. As Steele points out, this is a deal with the devil. It results in the impotence of the left in solving social problems and less freedom and autonomy for blacks. How can social problems be solved by telling people that they remain victims because of their race (or gender, for that matter?)

Who gains from this? The Left, the dhimmis, the fascists.

Bombs and bullets as conflict escalates in Gaza
By Times Online and agencies

The Palestinian Authority was lurching further towards a split today as the power struggle between Hamas and Fatah, the two rival political parties, degenerated into violence.

At least nine people were injured this morning when gunmen from the ruling Hamas party opened fire from a car on bodyguards protecting Samir Masharawi, a leading Fatah activist in Gaza City.

The bodyguards hit back, peppering the car with bullets and injuring at least one of the attackers. Eight more people were injured in sproadic gun battles as supporters from both side streamed to the scene. Five children between the ages of eight and 14, who were on their way to school, were among the casualties.

Later this afternoon, Hamas gunmen detonated two small bombs before firing into a funeral procession in southern Gaza. Fatah gunmen dropped to the ground and returned fire. A number of mourners, including children, were injured.,,251-2173023,00.html

Who should pay for the coming annihilation of the mad?
I'll confess in public for the first time, (and I know this will shock many of our devoted fans,) that I am not a science nerd.

In George Orwell's 1984 there is a scene in which O'Brien listens to Winston Smith say that 2+2=5. I found out recently that it's a trick question of some kind. It is exactly that about science that I love so much even though I'm not a numerically adept kind of guy. I like math for the same reason I like Latin, which I'm no better at: both have, when well done, an elegant beauty that is surpassing of nearly everything else. Thus, given my organic limitations, I do what I can with science, I read Bacon for the idea of science. I read of the beauty of thought well written. I love the beauty of Human thought at its highest. I go all funny when I find out things such as a formula for measuring the volume of a cone. It works for me better than Viagra.

Below I'm adding an apple and an orange to make a point of some sort. The first article is excerpted from an interview on Islamic fear and hatred of Humanity and its beauty, our beauty. The second is from an article on the fear and hatred of algebra. In a flourish of scientific method, I'll conclude at the end.

Frontpage Interview's guest today is Reed Rubinstein, the Washington, D.C., attorney who successfully represented Andrew Whitehead of Anti-CAIR in CAIR's libel suit against him.

As I went through CAIR's paper and Internet trail back to approximately 1994, it
seemed to me CAIR's world view, its "meta-message" as it were, can be broken down into three key themes. The first is terrible fear. It seems from reading their material that Islam is under intense assault. The second is triumphalist confidence. It seemed to me that the authors of CAIR's e-mail alerts and website texts and written reports believe that Mohamed said that Islam is the only true faith, so Muslim control and domination are eventually assured. The third is that Jews and Zionists are apparently a source of and explanation for Muslim problems and failures. The conclusion seems to be Muslims will reap the benefits if Jewish "power" is reduced.

I saw these same themes reappear over and over again on a variety of Muslim websites, that I explored, and in many mosque sermons and Islamic publications that I read. In the course of defending Mr. Whitehead, we engaged in a great deal of wide-ranging research, and I must tell you that I found entering the Islamic Internet world was like walking through a sewer. The contempt and intolerance for difference and dissent (even by other Muslims) is shocking. Anti-Americanism and disdain for Western civilization is a given. The oppression of women seems to be a basic cultural norm. And, of course, raw, eliminationist anti-Semitism is ubiquitous. Frankly, the obsessive fixation on Jews, Jewish control of the United States, and Jewish worldwide plots at times led me to believe there is some sort of mass psychosis at work.

Students (and pundits) who find algebra hard might consider how difficult such math must have been for the people who actually pioneered it. That story is told in a new book, Unknown Quantity: A Real and Imaginary History of Algebra , by John Derbyshire (Joseph Henry Press). Derbyshire, who wrote a previous book on math, Prime Obsession, and is a frequent contributor to National Review, gives an absorbing account of algebra over the millennia, from its rudimentary origins in ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt to its cutting-edge applications in 21st-century physics.

An interesting feature of this history is just how slow progress often was. Babylonians in the 2nd millennium BCE worked out algebraic word problems on cuneiform tablets, and the ancient Greeks handled similar problems with a geometrical approach, but it was only at the time of Diophantus, who lived in Alexandria in roughly the 3rd century CE, that anyone used letter symbols to keep track of unknowns in equations. The brutal death of the female mathematician-philosopher Hypatia in 415 at the hands of a religious mob marked the twilight of math in the declining Roman Empire.

Around 820, the Islamic scholar al-Khwarizmi wrote a book on algebra (the word comes from the Arabic al-jabr, or "completion," his term for adding the same amount to each side of an equation to put it into a standard form). However, al-Khwarizmi and his contemporaries worked on algebra through word problems and geometry. Diophantus' practice of employing letter symbols in equations had vanished into forgotten archives. It was not until the late 1500s, particularly with the work of French mathematician François Viète, that algebraic symbols were reinvented and started to be used in a systematic way.

Such tortuous history, as Derbyshire points out, suggests that symbolic algebra, with its high level of abstraction, does not exactly come naturally to people. He finds this a bit depressing but also inspiring. The remarkable thing is not that it took humanity so long to learn how to do this stuff, but that we can do it at all. No thanks to some pundits, though.

Kenneth Silber is a TCS contributing writer who focuses on science, technology and economics.

"The first is terrible fear.... The second is triumphalist confidence."

" slow progress often was."

The primitive world is static. There is no slow progress, only a waiting and a drifting and a cycle of death in the hope of some final release from the world of pain and illusion. Muslims follow sharia to the letter in the hope that nothing will ever be different from what it should be in a perfect formula. If X is perfect, then to tamper with X is to take away from its perfection. Sharia, the law of Allah, is perfect. Hold your breath. Don't anybody move! Stay like this forever.

Islam is the proverbial House of Cards. It's there, and it's likely to stay in place so long as there is not a hint of tremor. And just a few more additions will make the whole thing complete. Muslims are living in fear of the whole of Islam collapsing in a flash, and they are also jubilant at the sight of the massive edifice of Islam as they see it. Just-- nobody move!

Knowing that a breath of fresh air will topple the House of Islamic Cards is not enough to discourage the Muslim world, only enough to frighten it. And to see themselves as almost at the end of their great success in building a House of Cards makes their hands tremble. Knowing that their House of Cards is silly and worthless even in terms of other primitive pass-times is frightening; but worse is to know and not be able to acknowledge the idiocy of the game, which is to drive them deeper into self-willed madness and denial. This is a child's game, one of an angry and distempered child. And the permissiveness of the West, the continued allowance of this childishness and violent tantrum is furthering the distemper to the point whereat intervention will lead to destruction that never needed to come to pass but is now likely inevitable. Not only the House of Islamic Cards will fall, the ummah itself will have to endure a terrible retraining in the world of Human beings exasperated and determined to stop the rage and destruction of Islamic childishness. Islam is coming in for some major spanking. Islam goes to bed without dinner. Islam stands in the corner. Islam gets detention and maybe some time in reform school. This game is running out of time, and the adult world is coming to collect its due in proper behaviour from an out-of-control child.

Our own have created this situation. We must now correct it.

The world's people have split in two, bifurcated between the cyclical and the linear. Those who wander in a tight circle throughout history are aware of the rest who have left them far behind. the gap is unbridgeable. There is no joining again. The sight and the deep knowledge of being left behind is maddening and rouses the lost to violence and self-destructive hatred. The Muslim world is committing suicide before our eyes. In a final frenzy of tantrum the Muslim world will smash its own House of Cards and destroy all it can in its hysteria. Too many of our own ignore that fact. Too many of our own blame us for demanding the Muslim world stop its madness. Muslims look to the permissives for permission to continue, and they find it. They will find the permissive over-ruled soon enough.

Algebra is a pursuit of the mind and a making in the world. Like a house of cards, it's a delicate construction, done one piece at a time; but it never falls down regardless of assaults around it or even directly on it. Many people don't like it, algebra appearing to be difficult and irrelevant to living. And algebra continues on into the future based more solidly as time goes by.

Islam is a rotten phantasy of murder and childish hatred turned against adulthood. Our efforts to achieve adulthood, one being the rise of mathematics, are also subject to a childish tantrum, this time from our own, from those who rebel against Modernity. Humanity is split in two. Some live in a mental House of Cards, the rest live a life of the mind in the Palaces of Mathematics. The point is not whether we're good at organising numbers: it's a matter of which side of the division we're on.

Christians Support and Pay for Murder.

Tamimi also quoted from a speech he said was made by the Secretary-General of the Middle-Eastern Churches Committee, Riad Jarpour....

The Reverend Riad Jarjour, general secretary of the Middle East Council of Churches....

This is far afield for me, an atheist and an easy-going guy even at the worst of times. And yet in reading thie following pieces on the dhimmi Christians and the Muslim killers they create I find myself again enraged and close to demanding of any Christian of conscience that he hang the Presbyters from any available lamp post.

The first piece below is from HAMAS, demanding death to Christians, one thing I have in common with them. However, we differ on which ones, I being selective, HAMAS being sequential.

The second and third pieces come from HAMAS dhimmis. If it's not clear yet I will make it so: I want to hang these Nazi monsters from lamp posts.

'Christian Zionists are our enemy'
Hamas Authority has pro-Israel Christians in its sights

By Stan Goodenough
May 09, 2006

Christians who support the return of the Jews to Zion and oppose the establishment of an Arab state on Jewish lands are apostates who worship Satan and seriously threaten world peace.

Christian Zionist organizations, like the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, carry out "criminal activities against the Palestinian issue and the Palestinian people [sic]."

The world's churches should expel such heretics from their ranks. And it is the duty of Muslims everywhere to kill them.

These are the sentiments of senior figures in the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority according to translations from the Arab press published by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW

An article by a cleric, Ahmed al-Tamimi, director of the PA government's Religious Judicial Council's "Inter Religion Dialogue Department," was being reported in a number of Christian and Jewish media Tuesday.

In it al-Tamimi attacked Christian Zionists for having "adopted Satan as God." He said it was Satan who "drives their crazy nature."

Apparently oblivious to the incongruity of an Islamic cleric even making such statements – when his whole religion rejects Christianity in any form as heresy – al-Tamimi called Christian Zionism "a dangerous distortion; a deviation from the true Christian faith."

It was thanks to Christian Zionists that the State of Israel exists today, he railed.

On this point al-Tamimi is at least partially accurate. Christian Zionists played a major part in the issuing of the Balfour Declaration that in 1917 opened the way for the establishment of a Jewish state in what was then called Palestine. And Christian Zionists labored alongside Jewish Zionists like Theodore Herzl to help create the conditions necessary for Israel's rebirth.

In al-Tamimi's eyes:

"This destructive [Christian Zionist] movement … together with her Zionist Jewish ally comprise[s] the greatest danger to world truth, justice, and peace."

"Even if the sides of this hated-malicious alliance [of Israelis and Christian Zionists] have different goals, they both agree on hatred of Islam and the Muslims and on [the goal] to destroy them…"

Tamimi also quoted from a speech he said was made by the Secretary-General of the Middle-Eastern Churches Committee, Riad Jarpour:

"Hence there is no place in the Middle East for Christian Zionism, it must be expelled by the World Church, since it is a dangerous distortion and a big deviation from the true Christian faith, which concentrates on Jesus, and it [Christian Zionism] defends a national political program which considers the Jewish race supreme…"

Last August, Hamas Foreign Minister Mahmoud al-Zahar told the London-based daily Al-sharq Al-awsat the terror group regarded Christian Zionists as criminals.

And according to a report by the Israel National News website Monday, PMW previously quoted another PA religious leader "who announced a prayer for the murder of 'infidels'" – a term that includes the Christian West.

Viewers were exhorted to:

"Destroy the Infidels and the Polytheists! Count them and kill them to the last one, and don't leave even one."

The Presbyterians, as one example of dhimmi filth, support HAMAS. These Presbyterians do not support Christians otherwise. I would be delighted to supply rope to HAMAS with which they will hang Presbyters. Here in part is why:

Overture 04-34. On Confronting Christian Zionism—From the Presbytery of Chicago.

The Presbytery of Chicago respectfully overtures the 216th General Assembly (2004) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to actively oppose Christian Zionism and to develop a plan to communicate the theological and political ramifications it engenders within our denomination, in the mass media, and among U. S. government officials. Specifically, we call upon the General Assembly to do the following:

1. Issue to all churches in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) a pastoral letter on Christian Zionism and the ongoing conflict in Israel and Palestine and make this letter available on the PC(USA) Web site.

2. Inform current government officials of the Christian alternatives to Christian Zionism.

3. Continue to commend and promote the PC(USA) list of resources found in the September/October 2003 issue of Church & Society, entitled "Israel and Palestine: The Quest for Peace," so that Presbyterians can and will become knowledgeable of the present day Middle East situation and have a better understanding of its history and people.

4. Educate Presbyterians about the Reformed principles for interpreting Scripture in light of the gospel and the rule of love of God and neighbor, as affirmed by previous General Assemblies.

5. Continue to cooperate with other denominations and like-minded groups to promote an understanding of peace in the Holy Land.

6. Urge our Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)-related colleges and seminaries to address this issue.


We are called by Scripture to love God and all our neighbors. Christian Zionism promotes a theology that justifies grievous violations of basic rights of people who are also made in the image of God and is contrary to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Its teachings invite contempt for fellow Christians in the Middle East, and foreclose decent human relations with many Evangelical Christians in our own American society and in our churches. The implications of this issue need to be understood and to be given much broader attention by our denomination.

The term, "Christian Zionism," is used to refer to the use of passages of biblical prophecy out of context to influence political and religious leaders to accept the State of Israel as a necessary condition of the return of Jesus Christ and the eschatological end of time (Armageddon), when Jews and others will be given the option to either convert or perish.

Christian Zionism fails to relate to or defend Palestinian Christians who are fleeing their homeland because of Israeli occupation, economic closures, continuing confiscation of land and settlement construction, military aggression and now the "Wall."

Christian Zionism is actually anti-evangelical in that it undermines the presence and witness of the indigenous Middle East Christians, whether in the Holy Land itself or throughout the Middle East.

Christian Zionism creates a false image of Christianity, one that is militant, western, and Zionist; and the repercussions often affect the continuity of indigenous Middle East Christians.

Our Palestinian Christian partners urge us to speak out on this issue, notably the churches of the Middle East, the Middle East Council of Churches, the Sabeel Ecumenical Center, and others, as well as our good friends, the leaders of these bodies: the Reverend Naim Ateek of the Sabeel Center in Jerusalem, the Reverend Riad Jarjour, general secretary of the Middle East Council of Churches, and the Reverend Mitri Raheb, pastor of Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem, who last year served as a mission partner in residence on the Worldwide Ministries Division staff of the PC(USA).

Christian Zionism has become a divisive voice in American churches that turn prophetic texts of the Bible into apocalyptic scenarios for the end times in a predictive and reductionist form of prophecy.

The Christian Zionist message jams the airwaves every day on Christian radio and television and follows a theological approach to the Bible called "premillennial dispensationalism," a theme that emerged in the early 1800s and was promoted in the U.S. by the Reverend John Nelson Darby.

The 1995 novel Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, and the subsequent series of novels that pick up on this view and focus on events leading to the end of history and the return of Jesus, found a profitable market among millions of North America readers, thereby finding popular but largely uninformed support.

Influential members of the current U.S. government endorse Christian Zionist positions as a basis for U. S. foreign policy. Christian Zionists, aligned with the minority Jewish settler group, take positions on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict that are contrary to the position of the Israeli government and of most Israelis, opposing a two-state solution and supporting transfer of all Arabs out of Palestine.

Finally, pre-millennialist interpretations that underlie Christian Zionism ultimately exclude any validity of the continuity of efficacy of God's covenant with the Jewish people themselves, and ultimately are anti-Semitic.

Jesus rejected efforts to speculate on the future by saying it was not for them to know the "times or the seasons" that God has chosen (Acts 1:6-11).

Christian Zionism is contrary to the Reformed principles of interpreting Scripture that call us to read Scripture in light of the gospel; and to interpret Scripture in light of the one commandment of God that summarizes all other commandments, love for God and for all our neighbors.

Our denomination is part of a coalition of Christian organizations called Churches for Middle East Peace. Its "Theological Reflection #1" describes the effect of the Zionist claim as the active dispossession of Palestinians of their land. Adding our voice to this specific issue will strengthen our joint efforts.

The 215th General Assembly (2003) reaffirmed the actions of previous General Assemblies that support peace in the Middle East; further, the 2003 resolution urged pastors, lay leaders, sessions and individual members of the PC(USA) to avail themselves of study resources that help them understand the history, nature, and dimensions of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians (Minutes, 2003, Part I, pp. 622-23).

And here we whave one of the darling of the dhimmi Christian movement who urge the Muslim triumphalists to commit murder of innocents.

In a revisionist look at the history of U.S. relations with Palestine, Lawrence Davidson offers a critical study of the evolution of American popular and governmental perceptions of Zionism and Palestine, from the Balfour Declaration of 1917 to the founding of Israel in 1948.

Zionism, which sought to transform Palestine into a Jewish state, emphasized the biblical and religious connections of the West to Palestine. Davidson argues that this orientation predisposed the American people to see Zionism as a form of "altruistic" imperialism that would bring civilization to a backward part of the world.

However, American Zionists met resistance from the State Department, particularly the Division of Near Eastern Affairs, whose neutral stance until 1945 was shaped by a fear of foreign entanglements.

Exploring rising tensions on both sides, Davidson describes how the American Zionists overcame this resistance and outmaneuvered the State Department by using lobbying techniques and appeals to popular sentiment.

Showing how a powerful and determined interest group turned the U.S. political system to its advantage and shaped foreign policy, America's Palestine is an important study of one of the 20th century's most controversial international stories.

Lawrence Davidson, professor of history at West Chester University in Pennsylvania, is the author of Islamic Fundamentalism and of numerous articles on U.S. attitudes toward and relations with the Middle East.

These filthy scum Christian dhimmi pieces of shit deserve nothing less than hanging. That is, however, merely my exercise of free speech. I look forward to responding as well as I am able to anyone who makes his way to the comments section.

Jooos Make Muslims Face Hard Times

The following comes from a blogger called "One Pissed [off] Arab. And it's no wonder he's pissed-off. It's the Jooos, you see. This time they're plotting to destroy the ummah by beaming images of Arab porno girls at the faithful. No, it's not just Pastorius at IBA who threatens the world with skimply clad babes on the Net. Sure enough, it's the Jooos.

Arab Porn conspiracy theory and Video Clip Starlets


There has been much chatter on the Arab discussion boards about Israel's plans to launch an Arabic Porn Satellite channel. (You can imagine how much fun it was entering those as search words in a search engine!) And the plot is so elaborate with details such as: It will be non-encoded, it will be broadcasted from an Israeli Satellite that is close in frequency to the Egypt's Nile Sat. There will also be terrestrial broadcast viewable without the need for a receiver and a dish .. In all the online discussions it seems that the story is believed, no one puts it beyond Israel to do something like that, after all if they kill & assassinate in cold blood why wouldn't they. Actually they have done it before

OK lets follow this through, if you are going to produce Arabic Porn, what is the main ingredient?
Arabic Girls ! Porn is already available in abundance on the Internet and on the Hotbird satellite covering the Middle East, sex video tapes and magazines are not even in demand.

Now how do you convince an Arab girl to commit social suicide, go against religion, and strong family values injected in us Arabs? The theory begins now:

a) You IMPORT non Arab girls, teach them to talk in Arabic, maybe even with a Lebanese accent, (considered most sexy) the Lebanese accent would also cover their non-Arab looks.
b) You keep your ear to the ground, and take on any Arab girl that wants to join you and give her sanctuary along with huge sums of money.
c) You will be a BIG hit if you can draw society role models like actresses and singers.

What if you can prepare for all the above now by injecting girls in the Arab music scene in the form of models, dancers & video clip artists, grow them to become famous, then use them later on in your Porn channel, diabolic plan right ?

Maybe that would explain the flood of Video clip female performers that can barley speak Arabic, speak in a Lebanese accent, can't sing to save their own lives, perform in a very sexually charged manner, copying lapdance and striptease moves, and do all that half naked. They are not going to sell tapes or CD's, and would have to work in prostitution for years and years to cover the production costs of those video clips, they obviously are not rocket scientists and don't have real jobs or education, so where are they coming from ?

Just in case someone's mind is as twisted as mine, and such a channel in being planned, read the following slowly:

Don't! You do not want to wipe out all the moderates in the Arab world[.]

[L]aunching such an Israeli porn channel in Arabic will strengthen the religious right wing and mobilize all political spectrums against Israel and all that support Israel. A preemptive strike against Israel will be called for, and it will be well justified. Personally I don't care too much for Israel's well being, I just think we do not need a militant society. A good army is good, an armed society is bad [J]ust making things simple if George Bush happens to be reading this !



Yes, there are always the giant spiders to clear up this evil conspiracy. If I could make up this stuff I'd be filthy rich.

As in Chess, so in War.

Explosive Pawns

Written by the prez
Monday, 01 May 2006

An updated, Middle Eastern version of chess will hit stores in the coming weeks.

Developed by Ham-Arse officials with their education budget. Jihad ChessTM uses the age-old 64 square chequerboard and one set of traditional white pieces.

However, the black pieces are all pawns with an explosive new "capturing technique".

"Any black piece can be detonated at any time, taking out all pieces within one square vicinity," Jihad Chess designer Mahmoom wez Abedsheed said.

"This much better reflects the way Jihad battles are fought, young pawns blowing people up on our behalf.

"And like reality, black pawns can also kill pieces on their own team. It does not matter how many pawns we lose from our side as long as the white infidel is bombed."

Another deviation from traditional chess is the sleeper pawn – the black side secretly nominates one pawn from the white team which has the potential to blow up at any given time.

"These sleepers can not be activated until the white king has been moved for the first time," wez Abedsheed said.

Da Pinchmi Code

I passed on a chance to watch United 93. I also passed up a chance to see just about everything else on offer. There's that other Hollywood picture out now, or soon. I must like my fiction a little more on the scientific side than what I might have gotten from the other option. I settled instead for Da Pinchmi Code. Here's the script and some reviews.

Dr. Abd Al-Basset Al-Sayyid of the Egyptian National Research Center: British Research Proves Holy Stone of Ka'ba to be a Semi-Conductor from Outer Space

Following are excerpts from an interview by Abd Al-Baset Sayyid from the Egyptian National Research Center, aired on Al-Risala TV, on March 9, 2006.

Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: The British Museum announced that it possessed three pieces of the black stone [of Mecca]. It declares that these pieces prove that the black stone is not from our solar system.


They brought an Englishman, with white hair and a red face.

This man wasn't a Muslim, but he went into the Ka'ba, and started circling it, until he had an opportunity. The stone did not have a metal frame at the time. He took a diamond and cut off three pieces.

Then he went from Mecca to Jedda, and in Jedda, he found refuge in the Australian embassy, where he was welcomed as a hero. An Australian ship took him to the UK, in London. There, he brought the stones to the British Museum, and they began to study them. What was their intention? To prove that this is a plain stone, from Earth. This would mean that the stone kissed by Muslims is a regular stone.

Interviewer: They wanted to accuse us of...

Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: But the analysis showed otherwise.

Interviewer: What did they find?

Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: They discovered that the stone was a type of semi-conductor. Semi-conductors led to the development of electronics. Take a large radio - a radio this size. How? Instead of the light bulb we used to put inside the radio, they began to make them as small as a crystal this size.


Karnar from NASA took one piece of the stone from the British Museum. He charged it with a million telephone wires, yet the stone withstood it. He charged it with 100 million telephone wires, yet the stone withstood it. This piece of stone was the size of a chickpea. He found that this stone emits invisible radiation. He found that a stone the size of a chickpea emits 100 rays. Each ray can pass through 10,000 people.

British Research Proves Holy Stone of Ka'ba to be a Semi-Conductor from Outer Space


Alan E Brain provides this fascinating insight into contemporary Islamic science, by way of MEMRI.

The following are excerpts from an interview with Dr. Abd Al-Baset Al-Sayyed of the Egyptian National Research Center. Al-Majd TV aired this interview on January 16, 2005

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: The centrality [of Mecca] has been proven scientifically. How? When they traveled to outer space and took pictures of the earth, they saw that it is a dark, hanging sphere. The man said, "Earth is a dark hanging sphere – who hung it?"

Interviewer: Who said that?

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: [Neil] Armstrong. Armstrong was basically trying to say: Allah is the one who hung it. They discovered that Earth emits radiation, and they wrote about this on the web. They left the item there for 21 days, and then they made it disappear.

Interviewer: Why did they make it disappear?

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: There was intent there…

Interviewer: So it may be said that this suppression of information was significant.

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: It was very significant, since…the Ka'ba [in Mecca]… They said it emits radiation. This radiation is short-wave.

When they discovered this radiation, they started to zoom in, and they found that it emanates from Mecca – and, to be precise, from the Ka'ba.

Interviewer: My God!!

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: It was said…

Interviewer: Does this radiation have an effect?

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: They found that this radiation is infinite. When they reached Mars and began to take pictures, they found that the radiation continues beyond. They said that the wavelength known to us… or rather the shortness of the wavelength known to us… This radiation had a special characteristic: It is infinite, and I believe that the reason is that this radiation connects the [earthly] Ka'ba with the celestial Ka'ba.

Imagine that you are the North Pole and I am the South Pole – in the middle there's what is called the magnetic equilibrium zone. If you place a compass there, the needle won't move.

Interviewer: You mean that the pull is equal from both sides?

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: Yes, and that's why it's called zero-magnetism zone, since the magnetic force has no effect there. That's why if someone travels to Mecca or lives there, he lives longer, is healthier, and is less affected by Earth's gravity. That's why when you circle the Ka'ba, you get charged with energy.

Interviewer: Allah be praised.

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: Yes, this is a fact.
This is a scientific fact…

Interviewer: Because you are distant from…

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: Earth's magnetic fields have no effect on you in this case.

There's a study that proves that the black basalt rocks in Mecca are the oldest rocks in the world. This is the truth.

Interviewer: The oldest rocks? Yes. Has this been proved scientifically?

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: It's been scientifically proven, and the study has been published.

Interviewer: They took basalt rocks from Mecca…

Dr. 'Abd Al-Baset Sayyid: …Basalt rocks from Mecca, and investigated the places where they were formed.

In the British Museum there are three pieces of the black stone [from the Ka'ba] …and they said that this rock didn't come from our solar system.

It may be hard to believe, but the Islamic world was very advanced in science about a thousand years ago. At that time, Europe was in a feudal dark age dominated by religious fanaticism while the Arab territories were relatively tolerant.

I'm astounded Dr. Sayyid didn't mention the most important discovery of all. Namely, where the black basalt actually came from.

An Islamic research team of geologists and astronomers discovered this rock came from the moon. From a large piece of black basalt found there. The basalt had the dimensions 1x4x9 --the squares of 1, 2 and 3. Mathematically, it shows Islam is the only religion with scientific proof of its truths.

A member of the Islamic research team looked inside the Ka'ba said, "My God (Allah), It's full of stars!" His description was recorded and printed in an Islamic scientific journal. It was also broadcast on Al-Jazeera. That makes it a published scientific fact and irrefutable.

No, No No - you've got it all wrong. It's enough to make the Baby Mahommed (pbuh) cry.

The Ka'Ba artefact on the moon was actually just a portal discovered by the early Islamonauts, whose magnetic shortwave emanations pointed directly to the larger Ka'Ba at Mecca, the known centre of the universe, praise Allah (swt).

It was these shortwave transmissions that Neil Armstrong detected, and he was trying to say that Allah (swt) had well-hung Mecca where he did.

Do none of you infidels have any historical learning at all?
