An engineer in charge of a project to create gardens around a mosque in Abu Dhabi lost his temper during a meeting because the project was progressing slowly. He was reported to the police by his colleagues as saying: ‘When will we finish with the damn mosques?’. The poor man was sentenced to one month in prison and is appealing the decision.

For readers who like Sharia, this will be yet another example of its glory – at least his head wasn’t chopped off.

And for those who insist that mentioning mosques on their own is discriminatory against one religious group, let me add, ‘when will we finish with the damn mosques, churches and synagogues’ if only to protect their tender sensibilities…

  1. As a lifelong humanist of 85, I am sure that the wisest thing to do would be to organise the meeting again, for a new date, and at the same time obtain assurance from the local police force that there will be a police presence at the meeting prepared to take action if any threat is made again.If no such assurance can be obtained from the police, cancel the meeting, but report the matter to the local MP.

  2. Is it really freethought when we allow trolls to distract us with their hate speech? Should we continue to have a completely unmoderated discussion or should we institute some criteria – that hatred expressed against a particular group of people is unacceptable and will not be allowed?

    I know that the principle of unrestricted free-speech is an ideal we would not willingly abandon, but hate trolls do divert us from having meaningful and thoughtful discussion of the issues Maryam raises. This eejut serves only to raise our hackles and has the practical effect of suppressing our own right of free speech if only by diverting us to tell it to fuck off. It has been here before under different pseudonyms. At first it was mildly amusing to work out what strange world view it possesses. Now it is nothing but an irritation and needs to be squashed like a mosquito.

    To moderate or not, what do you think, friends?

    1. By “squashed like a mosquito” I do not imply anything other than removing and banning its posts, of course.

      1. That person needs to be ignored. He/she has been told to fuck off, but he/she hasn’t taken heed.

        Now we should try to ignore them and not respond to any of their future posts.

        How could they keep on posting when there is no response?

        1. This is an excerpt from ‘Urban Dictionary’ on trolling. It’s rather interesting Rafiq.

          ‘Trolling is trying to get a rise out of someone. Forcing them to respond to you, either through wise-crackery, posting incorrect information, asking blatantly stupid questions, or other foolishness. However, trolling statements are never true or are ever meant to be construed as such.

          Just as bad as trolling is “Feeding the Trolls”. This is when people say stuff that they know will prompt someone to respond with a trolled reply and/or replying to comments that are blatantly from a troll. This is especially true when a troll first makes his comment/reply, and (usually many) people respond, either trying to correct the troll, or express anger at the statement. At that point, the trolling was successful and has been fed. When encouraged by success and feeding, trolls often return.

    2. Oh look, Rafiq Mahmood the disgusting sandnigger Arab dog wants to limit free speech! First his sandnigger ancestors invade our mihan and attempt to subvert our race and nation then he wants us to not speak our thoughts.

      Just wait until the Islamic Republic falls, we’ll make sure we let you Arabs know precisely what we think of Mudslimes/Arabs.

      We HATE you ALL (yes, ALL ARABS, I don’t GIVE A FUCK what religion you are).

        1. Well, so much for ignoring him Maryam.

          Yes, I know you’re right, but bloody hell woman, read what ‘Urban dictionary says’.

          That’s all. I am off to bed.

        2. I wish he would stop using the “N” word. I’d call him a “Cracker”, but I don’t think he fits the definition of one.

      1. You hate Mudslimes yet don’t want to glass their asses? Fuck off, hadji lover. We Iranians call people like you “taazi parast”.

        1. What the hell are you talking about? I abhor violence, but that does not make me a lover of Islam, besides, aren’t most people in Iran Muslim? IMHO, your attitude seems asinine when the majority in your country are exactly what we’ve been talking about.

      2. Muslims are people who have all types amongst them just as Americans or Christians or whoever. Anyway they are not one homogeneous group. My fight is with Islamists as should be yours not Muslims.

        1. I agree, Maryam, as you know from what I said before- religion is not resticted to one ethnic group of people. Mythical stories appeal to a wide range of people. The stories themselves are harmless, but rather it is what people do with those stories that make them a menace to modern society.

          1. This lady knows nothing about Iran or Iranians. I’m surprised Maryam is offended by my comments which defend our mihan and our nejad e aryai but how she doesn’t get offended by the ignorant bullshit spewing out of this disgusting Mriana’s mouth. You know absolutely NOTHING about Iran or Iranians if you believe we’re “Muslims”, the average Iranian youth HATES Islam.

          2. PersianPower88, if Maryam were offended by anything I’ve said, she would probably say something. The last thing I would want to do is offend her, but you on the other hand with such vulgarity in your post, I would love to offend, esp since you are offensive with the names you call others.

        2. BTW, I’m confused- what is the difference between a Muslim and an Islamist again? I know you’ve said before, but I find it very confusing since they use the same books and all.

          1. Hard to describe what muslims are because there’s no such thing as a group/community of people who are the same, just like it is hard to describe what Welsh people are.

            There are so very many different muslims – and Welsh – people. Some may be orthodox, some liberal, some pro-feminism, some gay, some vote conservative some vote liberal.

            The only thing that binds them is that they practice Islam. That’s about it really.

            Islamists however are ultra-violent, far-right fascists who seek to impose their world view on everybody, by any means neccesary. Even on Muslims.

  3. I don’t get how saying, “When will we finish with the damn mosques” is offensive or even a criminal offence. Sometimes I think it is really lame what people get thrown in jail for in Islamic countries.

    1. I just mentioned this to my older son and that I think it is really stupid what some people get thrown in jail for in Islamic countries and he replied, “Welcome to Islam. Grab your head and get the f*** out.” 😆 Of course, I told him this man is lucky, in that he didn’t lose any body part, but is just in jail.

  4. Charming.

    Meanwhile, there was a discussion of sharia scheduled at UCL tonight and it was disrupted because “someone came into the lecture room, took pictures from everyone inside and said that those ppl attending the talk will be ‘hunt down’ in case something wrong would be said. But please double check with the organizer. Police was informed and we were kindly asked to leave the building…”

    Check it out on their Facebook page, which is public.
