Sweet Revenge

The Arab-European League (AEL), a pro-Hezbollah organization of Arab immigrants in Belgium and the Netherlands, is rallying its members to march in Brussels on 11 September “against Islamophobia and racism in Europe.” The AEL demonstration is a response to the request by the Danish-British-German organization Stop the Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) for permission to demonstrate on 9/11 in front of the European Union’s buildings in Brussels against the introduction of Sharia laws in Europe.

The AEL was founded in Belgium in 2000. Its founder, Lebanese-born Hezbollah-member Dyab Abu Jahjah, has called the 9/11/2001 attacks "sweet revenge."

What's an anniversary without revenge?


But that's not all. Here's a story reported in late August :

"Islamophobia" and the defamation of Islam are the most conspicuous forms of racism and intolerance today, and a global U.N. conference on racism planned for 2009 should come up with practical solutions to deal with them, an Islamic bloc representative told a preparatory meeting in Geneva.... Iran's delegate, Seyed Mohammad Kazem Sajjadpour, referred in his speech to "new forms of racism" after 9/11, "under the pretext of so-called war against terror."

...which is following up on this statement from February 2006 :

"The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), a Saudi-based grouping of the world's 57 Muslim states, wants the resolution's draft text to include a reference to "actions against religions, prophets and beliefs" and to state that "defamation of religions and prophets is inconsistent with the right to freedom of expression."

I know the logic is kind of convoluted, but let's follow it anyways and see where it leads.

1.... 2005/2006, Cartoons of Muhammad inspire Muslims to protest. To the death.
2.... 2006, Muslims respond by cartooning the Holocaust. At the behest of a Holocaust denier.
3.... 2007, More cartoons ; not bombs, mind you, but ink on a page cartoons. More riots.

So what simple conclusion can we draw from all this, dear reader? That's right : If it's in the name of Islam it's all good and if not it's all bad. Nothing new here.
