I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy — but that could change.

A cleric who trades in body parts

Straight talk from Guy Bechor of JPost:

He [Nasrallah] was referred to as “sewer rat,” “butcher,” and “murderer” around here, but he did not invent the Middle East: He merely plays in accordance with its cruel rules, and most importantly, he teaches us.

Had Hassan Nasrallah not existed, we would have to invent him, as in many ways he became Israel’s best survival guide. Just like an effective guide, he has no mercy on us and makes us cope with a series of challenges.

Nasrallah teaches us the tough rules of bargaining in our region, the rules of power and weakness, and how as a threatened minority, such as the Jews or the Shiites, one must be strong and determined in the Middle East. He reminds us what part of the world we live in, even if some of us thought that maybe we moved to Western Europe or to a new Middle East.

Here is the sewer rat himself talking:

"Oh Zionists your army is lying to you ... your army has left the body parts of your soldiers in our villages and fields," the black-turbaned leader said in a live speech transmitted to the crowd on a huge screen.

"Our mujahideen used to fight these Zionists, killing them and collecting their body parts. I am not talking about regular body parts. I tell the Israelis, we have the heads of your soldiers, we have hands, we have legs."

"There is even a near-complete body, a half or three-quarters of a body, from head, to chest to the torso," said Nasrallah.

Truly, a man of G-d. Their G-d. The Religion of Peace.

Note: EU does not consider Hezbollah a terror group. US and Israel do.

Muslim fathers 'encourage' children to flagellate themselves with chains and knives.

An investigation by Cumbria Patriots

"It is illegal, yet the police are not keen to prosecute. (the report I have summarised below was from 2005)

In 2003 a routine doctor's appointment in north London a doctor asked 14-year-old to take off his shirt, he noticed something very worrying. Criss-crossed on the child's back were more than 50 lacerations. The doctor asked for an explanation and was told the boy "had inflicted the wounds himself during a religious ceremony; there was nothing to worry about. The doctor called in the child protection agency.

Through interviewing the family, a joint police and social services investigation team found that the child had made the lacerations by whipping himself with a zanjeer - a long chain with a set of curved knives attached at the end - as part of a flagellation ritual at the Idara-e-Jaaferiya mosque in Tooting, an area of Wandsworth, south London. The ritual, known as "zanjeer zani" or "zanjeer matam", was part of the Shia Muslim festival of Ashura, marked at the mosque every year."

Silicone Valley, United States
I am a cantankerous man living and working in the Silicon Valley where reading books is an abomination that is virtually unheard of, frowned upon and may be detrimental to one's career. I avoid censure by never conceding that I ever read or owned a book in my life. If anyone accidentally glimpses my scant proficiency in any subject matter, I immediately accredit it to having glanced at DrudgeReport that day.
