International Delusions

"Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one."

I have voted Liberal Democrat for 20 years but as the "Left" declines further and further into insanity and leaves me further and further to the "Right", I see no alternative but to vote for the BNP (or another right-of-centre party should one appear). Tired of seeing the ever increasing number of rabid, ludicrous, hate-filled, "left-wing" blogs, I thought I'd better participate. Now it seems this makes me a racist, fascist, Islamophobic, "Zio-Nazi" (!), crusading white supremacist! I'm such an enigma, even to myself.

Islamophobia - an entirely rational recognition of the threat posed by radical Islam.

Racist/Fascist/Islamophobe/Etc. - anyone who recognises said threat or attempts to resist the global jihad.

Journalists protest Hamas pressure

"Dozens of journalists held a sit-in in Gaza yesterday to protest against pressure on the media by the Islamist Hamas movement, which took over the territory in June.

Two days before the demonstration Hamas forces had detained four journalists and broken up a rally of the rival Fatah party, which is led by Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian President.

“Yes to freedom of the press!”, “No to journalists arrests!”, “Keep journalists out of politics!”, read banners at the gathering of more than 100 reporters in front of the journalists’ union building in central Gaza City. The Jerusalem-based Foreign Press Association urged “the relevant authorities in Gaza to allow the proper functioning of the free press. There can be no excuse for any attempt to limit this freedom.”

On Friday three cameramen and an AFP photographer were detained briefly at the Fatah rally. Hamas forces fired in the air to disperse the crowd and tried to detain two other cameramen, but were prevented from doing so by other journalists."

Fortunately for Hamas, even if journalists in their own country won't toe the line, they can always rely on their British mouthpiece - Al-Guardian - to get the right message across.
