Saucing time

TEHRAN, Nov. 6 (MNA) — Iran’s Association of Muslim Journalists (AMJ) issued a statement on Sunday condemning the violation of Muslims’ civil rights in France and calling on the French government to cooperate with them in establishing a fact-finding commission in order to investigate the conditions of French Muslims. The AMJ said that the mistreatment of Black French Muslims over the past two weeks has deeply influenced Iranian public opinion.

While it is a bit unseemly to indulge too openly in schadenfreude over the intifadah in France, I feel no shame in doing so over the discomfiture of the political class there. Here we see the Caliphascist media team gearing up to do to the French ruling class what it has done for so long (with support from the French ruling class) to Israel. For that which they are about to receive, Lord, we are thankful.

Going for the 2005 Chutzpah award

THE leader of an Australian Islamic political party wants to know if supporting the right of Iraqis to kill Australian soldiers in Iraq constitutes sedition under planned laws.

Kurt Kennedy, president of the Best Party of Allah, which is registered in the ACT, believes it is a mere statement of fact that Iraqis were right to kill Australian soldiers.


Mr Kennedy said his party wanted to know the answers from policymakers.

“We’ve asked them directly to give us a policy reply. Is this what you want to do, to stop us from saying this?”

Perhaps Mr. Kennedy should discuss this, privately with some of those soldiers. I think that would be a very … informative experience.
