About Me

My photo
Split personality. Liking the arts, especially opera, and hockey and Los Toros. I know, I know THAT one is non pc currently. But I can't help it saw some in Spain and got hooked, but good. But on the other hand right now opera and hockey are in the forefront!

World News

Among other things, here are a few that seem soooo newsworthy, or not?

-Yes - good news.

http://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/mom-arrested-giving-her-11-old-tattoo-194700542.html  - Really?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/05/neanderthal-sex-modern-humans-interbreeding-africa_n_1942142.html?utm_hp_ref=science - yes, just what I wanted to know!

http://news.yahoo.com/penis-size-matters-bed-study-finds-153643820.html?_esi=0&ugccmtnav=v1%2Fcomments%2Fcontext%2F56356411-7b03-3139-a125-4679c7397a6a%2Fcomments%3Fcount%3D20%26sortBy%3Doldest  - well what'ya know! Good use of taxpayers $, isn't it?

http://news.yahoo.com/report-imprisoned-dutch-killer-impregnates-girl-090553579.html - immaculate conception - modern style?

- well, a bug is getting 'round!
- but then she is redeemed.
- hope he makes it the next time.

Had enough of this, I hope. 
But wait.
The next debate IS on tonight.

On the other hand there is this :

We are glad she survived.
She just wanted to learn, to study. Wanted to be more than chattel and a birth machine.
So those fanatics shot her.

When will her co-religionists wake up and take a stand.
A  peacefull (???)religion?

And in that vein: some relevant quotes/comments I came across some time ago.

'Pardon them and overlook [their misdeeds].
Indeed, Allah loves the doers of good}Verse(5:13)
Keep to forgiveness (O Muhammad), and enjoin kindness, and turn away from the ignorant}Verse (7:199)
And the retribution for an evil act is an evil one like it, but whoever pardons and makes reconciliation – his reward is [due] from Allah.
Indeed, He does not like wrongdoers.Verse (42:40)
No bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another Verse (39:7)'

Which means I can’t punish someone for a mistake that he didn’t commit because one of the people that he belong to have committed this mistake & punishment is with the same kind of the mistake they didn’t burn or destroy any thing for the Muslims in order to justify those actions
Please don’t blame Islam b/c of what those ignorants are doing

And here is a rebutal by another commenter:
'Qur’an:9:5 “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”
 Qur’an:9:29 “Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission.”
 Qur’an:8:39 “Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.”
 Qur’an:8:39 “So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).”
 Ishaq:324 “He said, ‘Fight them so that there is no more rebellion, and religion, all of it, is for Allah only. Allah must have no rivals.’”
 Qur’an:8:65 “O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding.”

And that is what bugs me lately!

Anything you like to talk about?

We saw massive protests against cartoons and videos. Where are the massive protests against real atrocities?

Protests against atrocities usually are 'peaceful ones - like 'turn the other cheek', maybe?
