He got it at the last stop before oblivion

It was 6th time lucky but Martin Scorcese finally got his well deserved Academy award. It's true that he made better movies in the past but there is no doubt "Departed" was the best movie this year and yours truly has given a very positive review of it here.

If, however, there is any common sense left in the world, these Oscars should be the last that are actually worth something. Over the past couple of years they were less and less hommage to the motion pictures and more and more a stage for promoting liberal mulitculturalist social engineering. As if "Brokeback mountain" wasn't bad enough, now they had to actually give the award to "The goracle" and his pseudo-science! Pitiful even for their standards.

So enjoy it, Martin! It's propably the last of the Oscars that was recieved for purely artistic reasons. From now on, political correctness is order of the day.

And now?

In the midst of legal inconsistencies that beggar belief, such as declaring themselves competent when Bosnia and Hercegovina in 1993 sued the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia but doing otherwise when the same FRY sued various NATO countries in 1999, and contradictions and absurdities in the verdict itself, the only logical outcome in theInternational Court of Justice could have been this one.

So what is going to happen now? I do not have the ability of forsight but I know what should happen. First of all Serbia must adopt a more rigid stance towards bosnian muslim officials. No more talks and pleading of reconciliation but demands that they cease with their agressive stance regarding Republic of Srpska. It goes without saying that Serbia must categorically reject the part that speaks of a "genocide" in Srebrenica and also any attempt to abolish the Republic of Srpska as an entity.

Further development will depend on the reaction of bosnian muslims. Will they finally drop their holier-than-thou attitude and start a true reconcilliation process or are they going to insist on the "victim" propaganda that was constantly parotted throughout the 1990-ties by the mainstream media. As much as I'd like to think it will be the former, all facts point to the fact that it will be the latter because it seems the 1990-ties fantasy of the bosnian war is firmly rooted in the new "bosniak" national identity of the bosnian muslims and to let go of it would mean it's complete deconstruction and would force them to finally ask real questions about their origins. And seeing the example of one of their most prominent countrymen many of them are already wary of answers.

It's a religion now!

No, not scientology, or the moonies or any other obscure group seeking tax-exempt status in the US under the guise of faith. It's the Church of Global Warming. And now they have their lone prophet, the Goracle!

Fact is ineed stranger then fiction. How long before we are warned about the manbearpig?

Throw the messenger down the well(*)

THE Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) have invited prof. Rapahel Israeli from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem to deliver a series of lectures. But apparently they didn't like what he had to say because after the first lecture they decided to distance themselves and withdraw their sponsorship of his lectures. This news beggars belief for two reasons.

First, it is inconcieavable that these organizations were not acquainted with the views of prof.Israeli since a simple Google search of his name would clearly show what the professor's views on the subject of Islam and terrorism are. If they expected someone who will deliver the old mantra "Islam is the religion of peace hijacked by extremists" and end his lectures with a rendition of "Kumbaya" they invited the wrong guy.

Second, their behaviour after professor Israeli's first lectures is a paradigm of contemporary multicultural liberalism. For people adhereing to that ideology it is not possible to accept any facts that contradict it. Therefore, instead of offering a rebuttal they simply decide to shoot the messenger, bury the head in the sand and repeat the multiculturalist mantra ad nauseam. What is even more scary is that governments in Europe and to a large degree in the USA think the same way.

(*) The title is a paraphrase of Borat's song "Throw the Jew down the well". Except it was the other Jews this time that are dumping prof. Israeli.

Kilroy-Silk hits out at UK mosques

No stranger to controversy, former TV host Robert Kilroy-Silk launched a scatching attack on the practice of UK mosques of not allowing women.

Before everyone jumps on the Kilroy-Silk bandwagon, I would like people to consider the man's motives, which are given in this statement:

He added: "I don't believe in religions. I think all religions are fairy tales, I think they are evil and I don't think Islam is one of the better ones, so I don't want anybody to be forced to go to a mosque.

Mr. Kilroy-Silk is obviously a militant atheist, but to his credit, he is a consistent militant atheist i.e. does not want to give islam preferential treatment which is more then can be said for the phonies of the contemporary liberal left.

Respect for mr. Kilroy-Silk putting action where his mouth is aside, we have to ask ourselves are his ideas the ones Europe and America should adopt as a substitution for the multiculturalist disaster that is at display these days. The answer is obviously no since it would be like trading AIDS for cancer. We have seen what ideologies that claim that "religion is the opium for people" have achieved. And just as today the likes of Kilroy-Silk are going after mosques, tommorow, when the islamic threat resceeds churches will become their target.

How dare they question the "official inconvenient truth"?

Everywhere you turn it's "global warming this", "global warming that"...Hollywood even took it up as it's latest cause celebre, substituting homosexuality and race relations by nominating Al Gore's movie for the Academy awards.

But it seems that the so-called incovenient truth is rapidly becoming the official gospel one. And woe unto those who express scepticism!
So much for the liberal left's professed love for free speech and debate.

But just how credible are the assertions of Al Gore and his ilk? Well, let's just say that being satirised on "South Park" doesn't help.

It was meant as a compliment

Pushed into a corner by overwhelming evidence, the principal of a muslim school in London finally admitted that the school used a book that describes Jews as "apes" and Christians as "pigs".

A superficial background check further revealed that the school is funded by the Saudi ministry of education and that the use of that book is standard in that country. The best part, however, came when the principal said:

...But we don't teach hatred towards Judaism or Christianity - on the contrary.

I'd hate to think what words would they use if they were teaching hatred.

The enemy that was within

There is an interesting discussion over at the "View from the right" about the causes for the fast collapse of France in 1940. It is a worthwhile and interesting discussion and all the arguments put up over there asn possible causes have contributed to the disaster, some more others less. But, in my opinion, one important piece was left out.

It was not just the prominent public figures in the press and the arts who were propagating appeasement, they were sitting in the governement as well, even heading it. And some days before the war broke out reportedly this anecdote happened: French army chief of staff briefed the governement on the state of the armed forces but mostly neglected to mention the problems they were facing. After the meeting prime minister Daladier took the general aside and told him:"Good thing you kept quiet about the weeknesses of the army, tommorow Hitler qould have known every word you said". It was widely known that one of the ministers Georges Bonnet was a nazi sympathiser but he couldn't be sacked from the governement without bringing it to it's downfall.

What does this tell us? Even in the days before multiculturalism it was possible for an enemy focused and ruthless enough to use the democratic system against the country that adheres to it. Laval and Bonnet were both elected in a democratic elections yet they still chose to serve the enemy rather then fight for their nation. Being democratically elected or having a large number of votes is no guarantee of ones loyalty or patriotism nor is democracy a universal cure for all problems a country faces. Without elements that transcede the democratic or indeed any other state system or form of rule a nation is prone dramatic collapses and calamities that threaten it's very existance.

I do like it when I'm right

In one of last week's entries I explained how, in my view, the atmosphere in football matches in England is so much better in the cups then in the Premier league. Anyone who saw the 2nd leg of the Arsenal-Spurs Carling cup semifinal can concurr. And it wasn't just on the stands, the teams produced a great show on the pitch as well.

Let's hope for more of the same in Cardiff.

This would kill anyone's career except...

...someone who is deemed a "liberal democrat". Delaware senator Joseph Biden, starting his presidential run ripped into his potential opponents. Among other things he said:

Mr. Biden is equally skeptical—albeit in a slightly more backhanded way—about Mr. Obama. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

So, other blacks(I detest the term "African-Americans") who ever served in public office or appeared as public figures were unarticulate, stupid and filthy? So, a smart and clean black person is something of a surprise? What about ordinary blacks? Thanks for showing your true colours, senator(pun unintentional)!

Now, you would expect the media, civil rights organisations and pundits to be up in arms for this expressing outrage at the senator's insensitive words. In reality, nothing is happening. No mainstream newspaper or TV station is rebuking Biden nor is any organisation supposedly fighting racism doing it. Imagine, however, that a conservative Republican was in Biden's stead. We would never hear the end of it, the man would be tarred and feathered out of Washington.

There is just one thing I am wondering: did Biden think of these statements himself or, bearing in mind his prescedents, he plagiarised this as well? After all, he did have someone who he can copy from.
