Prisons’ dilemma

November 23, 2008

The British have a big problem in their prisons: Muslim radicals, including al Qaeda supporters, dominating the other prisoners and even setting up sharia courts:

Muslim prisoners have launched a reign of terror inside a top security British jail.

The fanatics are forcing fellow inmates to convert to Islam or face punishment beatings.

One man who stood up to the thugs was branded with a lump of hot metal, according to a prison source.

The crisis at Whitemoor jail in Cambridgeshire has led to calls by staff for the 100 Muslim inmates there to be dispersed to other prisons round the country.

Some Al Qaeda supporters have set up a kangaroo court, sitting in judgment on prisoners and ordering punishments, the source said.

The violent disciples of Osama Bin Laden have targeted even the toughest non-Muslim prisoners, including killers and rapists.

Not that we have any such problem. Nope. Not at all.

And if you believe that one

Death is too good for homosexuals!

November 23, 2008

Hey, don’t take my word for it. Just ask Kuwaiti Islamic "scholar," who gives a charming interview on Al-Rai TV:

Moderator: Other than life imprisonment and the death sentence, what can be done?

Dr. Sa’d Al-‘Inzi: According to Islamic law, a homosexual should be thrown from a tall building.

Moderator: What would you do with them?

Dr. Sa’d Al-‘Inzi: To be honest, death is too good for them. They should be gathered in a public place, where they would be flogged and tortured, so the truth about these people is made clear and they serve as a lesson to others, because they are an epidemic plaguing society.

The video is here. This guy obviously spends a lot of time imagining what goes on in massage parlors and hair salons. A lot of time.

Maybe the "No on 8" groups here in California should watch this to gain some perspective about real hate. Raised Eyebrow

Most ethical Congress, ever!

Remember Nancy Pelosi’s promise? It seems Charlie Rangel (D-Tax Fraud), Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, didn’t get the memo.

I’m sure Nancy will get right on this. Waiting
