Text from the my original:
Kutuk-ing the one-track narrow mindedness of Malaysians who condemned the invasion of Iraq to oust Saddam, but are mum on the ousting of Libya’s Gaddafi.
Scumbag Malaysia “Recognises” Fascist Rebel Government In Libya
It is despicable enough that Malaysia did not bother to condemn the illegal and barbaric invasion of Libya by Special Forces of NATO and Britain which led to massive killings of civilians under the pretext of a UN-sanctioned imposition of a No-Fly Zone, for which China and Russia abstained.
It may have been understandable that at the initial stages, Malaysia could have been confused by the Zionist Anglo-American / NATO propaganda that Gaddafi’s government was allegedly killing its own people who supposedly was rising in protest against the rule of Gaddafi.
Could it be that this cowardly and hypocritical stance of Malaysia has to do with oil as well, just as the greedy and barbaric Western oil interests are doing?
And make sure this time round, the foreign minister crawls to Tripoli to offer a public apology to the heroic Libyans fighting the Neo-colonialists and fascist ‘Islamic forces’ who have betrayed Islam. These child-killers and rapists are financed by the Qataris and Saudis and propped up by the insidious propaganda of Al-Jazeera. Yes, this so-called Arabic media is now a tool of the Zionist Anglo-American Elites. How can anyone think otherwise when Qatar is the operation headquarters of the American Central Command in the invasion of Iraq.

Excerpt from New Straits Times letter.
A friend pointed out that in a recent book by Charles Kurzman, it was mentioned that only 40 people had perished because of terrorism in the United States since the 9/11 attacks, compared with 140,000 murders in the US in that time.
He added: “Kurzman also offers a provocative argument that is sure to set the jihad-hunters’ hair on fire — that there are actually very few Islamic terrorists in the world today.”
Another friend, who is an expert in international political relations, in making connections to Islamophobic attitudes, Norwegian killings and recent riots in the United Kingdom, offered an unapologetic comment on Western hypocrisy towards Islam: “When accused of terrorism, we are Muslims, but when killed by looters, we become Asians…”
Can such blatant hypocrisy be forgiven?
MUHAMMAD HUSNI MOHD AMIN, Bangi, Selangor
Who is the hypocrite here?
Very few Islamic terrorists in the world today?
He has never visited thereligionofpeace.com. Just an example, from 23-25 Aug 2011, twenty people were killed by terrorists who claim to kill in the name of Islam. The victims included women and children and monks. This happens every day with the overwhelming majority of victims being Muslims.
When accused of terrorism named as Muslims, but when killed by looters called Asians?
Muhammad Husni basically blames everything else under the sky for ‘Islamophobia’, but conveniently glosses over the real reason and sweeps it under a rug that he then throws into the basement.
I’ve said it before over and over… Who Really Gives a Bad Name to Islam?
A follow up to my previous letter Rev Ou Yang Wen Feng is Painting Me as A Bigot is now up at Malaysia Chronicle, which again has plenty of discussion in the comments.
From Malaysia Chronicle:
As can be expected, the comments at this piece are far less insulting and adversarial than the previous one.
Again, see also Bible Passages That Oppose Homosexuality – Including the Words of Jesus and God Himself for the below-mentioned Biblical references.
As for how this post came about, it’s not just a response to the comments on my previous letter – as I stated in this comment:
In fact just this week I was pondering on the fact that ‘moderate’ Muslims don’t condemn and try and avert their more violent brethren nearly enough.
But what about churches who lend little or no voice of condemnation and chastising when groups like Phelps’ harass homosexuals and military funerals? If the rest of the world unfairly thinks that Christians as a whole hate homosexuals when we merely do not agree that homosexuality is permitted by the Bible, is that not partly our own fault for letting the loud minority get away with their antics?
With reference to Who Really Gives a Bad Name to Islam?.
Full text of the letter as published follows, with added links to the Bible passages:
At Malaysia Chronicle, which has plenty of discussion in the comments.
(Follow up letter can be found at True Christians Support Neither Homosexuality nor Hatred.)
Some of them prove my point that simply for not accepting homosexuality as God-ordained, I am automatically labeled a bigot. At least one (Asur) was confused by my Ann Coulter-style not-clearly-marked sarcasm. And wits0 has been quite active there.
Only after completing the letter did I realize that (as mentioned above) it echoes Ann Coulter’s style of alternating between sarcastic mocking and serious genuflection without clear markings.
Also, the closing two paragraphs recalls what she said at CPAC 2011’s Q & A session:
I was always friend of the gays… Then liberals come with this idea no one’s thought of for a thousand years – gay marriage. And I go to sleep one night being friend of the gays, I wake up the next day [a] homophobe! No! You can’t do that – you just made up this gay marriage thing.
It is one thing to be gay, as it is a fundamental right to be whatever people choose to be, but it is another matter to misrepresent Christianity.
Finally, see also Bible Passages That Oppose Homosexuality – Including the Words of Jesus and God Himself which is short-linked in the letter itself.

I found them amusing so I’m collecting them here while the meme is still young (because AoSHQ archives are horribly hard to navigate or search for specific themes).

Between 1987 and 1993 and 2000 and 2005, the Palestinian people went through two uprisings against the Israeli government, known as the First and Second Intifadas, respectively. Both Intifadas involved demonstrations, protests and, yes, a certain amount of violent rioting.
They were met with an even more violent response from the Israelis that resulted in many deaths and the eventual blockade of Gaza, still in force today.
I can’t give her the benefit of the doubt, the application of Hanlon’s Razor, that what she said above is due to sheer ignorance.
Any fool can find on Wikipedia – that most basic, layperson of information sites – First Intifada and Second Intifada and find that they included the following certain amount of ‘violent rioting’ by Palestinians:
– Molotov cocktail attacks
– Hand grenade attacks
– Gun shootings, including with small arms, automatics and heavy machine guns
– Lynchings leading to death
– Luring a teenager to be ambushed and murdered
– Sniper shooting of a baby
– Suicide bombings of clubs, restaurants and buses full of women and children – including in ambulances and by children strapped with explosives!
– Taking clergy hostage and desecrating the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem
– Launching mortars and Qassam rockets
– Killing Palestinians accidentally through inept bomb making
– Killing Palestinians intentionally through using children and women as human shields
– Encouraging children to grow up to attack or suicide bomb Israel through kids shows and sing along songs
– Organized violence by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, terrorist groups which have as their stated goals the non-negotiable total destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews
– Palestinian death squads killing a thousand plus other Palestinians for allegedly collaborating with Israel (motherly example here), approved by Palestinian Liberation Organization leader ‘father of Palestine’ Yasser Arafat… Which by the end of the First Intifada killed more Palestianians than the Israelis did
This is Marina’s certain amount of violent rioting by Palestinians and even more violent response from the Israelis.
Post Intifada, you can add launching 10 rockets a day at Israel – during a ceasefire – to the above.
And for the record, the Second Intifada was intentionally sparked and spurred on by the notoriously corrupt Yasser Arafat, who had just rejected an offer for a Palestinian state at the Camp David Middle East Peace Summit.
In fact, imagine how much more poignant Marina’s contrast would be had she accurately portrayed the Palestinian Intifadas:
(WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN WRITTEN)
The Palestinians were exceedingly violent in their First and Second Intifadas against Israel – including carrying out shootings, suicide bombings, and even the cold-blooded murder of over a thousand Palestinians suspected of aiding Israel – yet our government fully supported them in their ‘protests’ against Israel.
Is it too much, then, to ask that our government support its own citizens who are engaging in a peaceful and orderly protest with nary a stone thrown or a bottle flung?
So I can no longer hold back.
Whatever point she may have been making about Malaysia’s government which I agree with does not erase the fact that, regarding the Palestine-Israel issue, I must voice my opinion now that MARINA MAHATHIR IS A SHAMELESS HACK.
(But oh, hey, wait. This is Dr. M’s daughter we’re talking about here. Maybe she too believes that Jews Rule the World, including and especially the media – Wikipedia included. That is why the information about the Palestine-Israel conflict there is hopelessly biased, skewed, unobjective in favor of the surely irredeemably evil Juice. /sarc)
Via AoSHQ, even without fossil fuels:
If you removed oil and gas from the Texas economy, the Lone Star state has still outpaced growth in California.
At time of writing, US unemployment is at 9.1% and 60% say their top concern is JOBS.
So Texas Governor Rick Perry should just hammer the above every chance he gets. By the way, while the US’s credit rating has just been downgraded by S & P, Texas’ was upgraded in 2009.
As the Rick Perry Fact goes:
What do Rick Perry and Obama have in common? They both inherited credit ratings from George W. Bush. Perry raised his, Obama lowered his.
For what Obama has been accomplishing by contrast, see DOOM graphs here.

UPDATE: He’s doing just that.
