Emile, there have been times in my live where my living room has been filled
with militant ultra-feminist lesbians who had spent half the night drinking in a
bar called The Duchess.

One night, one of them had a point, had pulled it out of a pocket, flipped it
open, stuck it in my face and told me that she was going to cut out one of my
eyes if I didn’t admit that every man was a rapist who should be castrated.

Emile, I don’t give a crap if it wasn’t a Libyan who drew the cartoon. If a rabid
macaque with Zionist tattoos drew the cartoon, it’s still a cartoon of TWO
FUNKIN NASTY-ASSED SONS OF BITCHES ROASTING IN HELL…it’s not the
protocols of the elders of Islam ......


if the damn cartoon depicted Meir Kahane and Ariel Sharon it would be TWO
NAST_ASSED SONS OF BITCHES and not an indictment of Judaism….. (Jennifer
Rubin and Dershowitz may disagree….....but they wouldn’t have a point and I
wouldn’t admit that they did.


all I can tell you is that if you looking to find offense it’s always close by…..

could be that you’re not getting your fair share of abuse or something.

take it easy, Emile, and I’ll see you on some other thread.

@ heterochromatic

Still, the cartoon, which was not drawn by Libyans, and the pairing of the two arab supervillians in hell in the midst of our racist war on terror IS offensive.

Admit it, I have a point.

Emile, there was no great and lasting harm in killing either of them and it wasn’t
because they were Arabs. 


I did not enjoy seeing a captured and defenseless Gaddafi get slaughtered instead
of tried and executed, but I’m pretty sure that the Libyans who slaughtered him
didn’t decide to do it because he was an Arab.

@ Heterochromatic

Righteous though I may be, I am not “reveling in victimhood by proxy”. The racism is there, in fact it is so deep-seated in our society that many don’t even recognize it.

And by the way… Obama, Bush, Johnson, Kennedy, and Livni have all killed a great number of innocent people quite intentionlly. Yes, they lived by the sword, but they were not Arabs, and have not been used as villians to justify the actions of Western imperialist warmongers.

No matter how often I see cartoons like this, they still turn my stomach, so perhaps I am wallowing in disgust, or perhaps I am just expressing a point of view which is wider than that of the cartoonist and the others reveling in the killing of yet another arab boogeyman.

No Emile, what they have in common is that they were two pieces of sh1t who
killed a great number of innocent quite people intentionally,  they were quite
prominent and that they were the two most recent famous and especially vile
people to live by the sword and die by it.

if you have a real need to decry racism where there is none and where none was
intended…..feel free to revel in your righteous victimhood-by-proxy.

@ Heterochromatic

I find the cartoon extremely offensive and racist.

What are the two main things Bin Laden and Gaddafi have in common with each other, but not with Obama for example, or Bush, or Kennedy, or Johnson, or Tzipi Livni???

They are arabs and they were killed by the U.S. (Nato, is I believe equivilent to the U.S. in this case).

Emile, Arabs deserve the same recognition for their achievements as any one else.
and you shouldn’t discriminate.

but, of course, being Arabs wasn’t what cause the boys to deserve a special place
in hell.

Not funny. I could think of some enablers that could be in there with them.
