Experts on Islam

Most of the sane customers in the Tavern (and that is most customers) get heartily fed up with our national leaders - and the leaders of other nations too - claiming that Islam is 'The Religion of Peace'. Apart from Tony Abbott, none of the usual suspects that sit in Gummunt seats attended theological college so really from what authority do they speak?

Self-appointed King (and elected President) Obama cannot seem to manage a speech without the claim. He often goes completely overboard as though he were a PR man.  

And no one laughs at him. Barely a serious journalist ever writes that he is a half-wit apologist for terrorists from a terrorist cult.

Unadulterated, pure, essence of bullshyte.

Everyone is an expert when it comes to Islam. They and they alone can parse Islam from ISIS and ISIL and some even try to con us into calling them 'daesh' on the pretext that Islamist murderers do not like the word because it sounds like a naughty arabic word. 

Islam has always been a bringer and sharer of goodness and light. 

Yeah, right.

Moderate muslims that is.  Briget Gabriel had something to say about that.

Now this apologist habit is spreading to the hoi poloi, even down to bouncers. And here I aplologise to the Tavern Bouncer for repeating what is already stated. He is a man of muscle and guile. But not a particulalry bright fellow.

'Prof' J.J. Ray had a few words to say on the subject before and after Danny Boyle told us of a recent 'incident'.
More on the man who shouted 'You ain't no Muslim, bruv'
"Isis should be wiped out, because they're not Muslims, because Muslims don't do that"
J.J introduced...... 
The man concerned has been treated as a profound theological authority on Islam by all sorts of people from the British Prime Minister down.  So who is he and what does he actually know? His identity has been kept under wraps so it has been difficult to answer that. Some information has now been released, however, so we do know a little about the man. 

Danny filed his view..... 
The man who shouted "You ain't no Muslim, bruv" at a suspected terrorist during a stabbing at Leytonstone Tube station has told how he now fears retribution. The bystander was heard in video footage of the incident in east London last weekend saying the phrase that later went viral as an attacker wielding a knife stabbed a man.
But the 39-year-old security guard from north London - named only as John as he asked for his surname to be withheld - said he has the support of his family
John is not Muslim himself, but said he is angry that terrorist groups such as Isil claim to represent Islam. "Isis should be wiped out, because they're not Muslims, because Muslims don't do that," he said. "It's as simple as that.
He told how he felt he had to voice his feelings when he saw what was happening in the station. 
"I saw the guy," he said. "I was like, well you ain't a Muslim... That's my views, and I had to let him know that, because he looked to be a terrorist. I don't believe in all that."
What do terrorists look like? What do Muslims look like for that matter?  
Muhyadin Mire, 29, is expected to stand trial next year charged with the attempted murder of a 56-year-old man who was attacked from behind in front of several members of the public on the evening of Saturday, December 5.
Prosecutors have alleged the attack, during which witnesses said they heard a man shout "This is for Syria", was an act of terrorism.

JJ is always well up on breaking news..... 
Some extra information:  The attacker was indeed a Muslim with a Muslim name. 
 He is a Muslim who came to Britain from from Muslim Somalia as a 12 year old.  He has a brother named Mohamed.  His first name is an African form of the Arabic Mujahideen, which is the term for one engaged in Jihad. Clear enough?
And the bystander is no authority on anything.  He is not even a Muslim himself. He is simply a security guard. 
Security guards do not have a great reputation for intellectual profundity and this guy does nothing to disturb that impression.   
He is simply a guy who has drunk deep of the official Kool-Aid. 
Despite massive and repeated evidence to the contrary he really believes that "Muslims don't do that".   
He is as deluded as his Prime Minister.
I pulled several pints. And nodded in agreement. The Narrative is catchy, like the pox.

Our 'leaders' think we are as stupid as they are. Perhaps they are right. We did elect them.

Well, you did.



  1. It's lineball who produces the greater lunacy - Obama or the climate circus.

    1. Yes. And backed by more money than you can shake a joss-stick at. I shall have to ask Jo Nova for a view if I can fill her glass in the Oz room soon.


Ne meias in stragulo aut pueros circummittam.

Our Bouncer is a gentleman of muscle and guile. His patience has limits. He will check you at the door.

The Tavern gets rowdy visitors from time to time. Some are brain dead and some soul dead. They attack customers and the bar staff and piss on the carpets. Those people will not be allowed in anymore. So... Be Nice..
