Here's video of Ken Livingstone's friend, moderate Imam Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi, getting his whacks in on the cartoon business (and for guys like Qaradhawi, this is business, big business), telling the audience that they're jackasses if they fail to rage sufficiently. And what Qaradhawi sermon would be complete without a little Jew-baiting for good measure?

Sheikh Al-Qaradhawi Responds to Cartoons of Prophet Muhammad: Whoever is Angered and Does Not Rage in Anger is a Jackass - We are Not a Nation of Jackasses

Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi: "The nation must rage in anger. It is told that Imam Al-Shafi' said: 'Whoever was angered and did not rage is a jackass.' We are not a nation of jackasses. We are not jackasses for riding, but lions that roar. We are lions that zealously protect their dens, and avenge affronts to their sanctities. We are not a nation of jackasses. We are a nation that should rage for the sake of Allah, His Prophet, and His book. We are the nation of Muhammad, and we must never accept the degradation of our religion."

..."We must rage, and show our rage to the world."...

"The governments must be pressured to demand that the U.N. adopt a clear resolution or law that categorically prohibits affronts to prophets - to the prophets of the Lord and His messengers, to His holy books, and to the religious holy places. This is so that nobody can cause them harm. They enacted such laws in order to protect the Jews and Judaism. Like some Danes have said: 'We can mock Jesus and his mother.' They were asked: 'Can you mock the Jews?' Here they stopped. The Jews are protected by laws - the laws that protect Semitism, and nobody can say even one word about the number [of victims] in the alleged Holocaust. Nobody can do so, even if he is writing an M.A. or Ph.D. thesis, and discussing it scientifically. Such claims are not acceptable. When Roger Garaudy talked about it, he was sentenced to jail, according to the laws. We want laws protecting the holy places, the prophets, and Allah's messengers."...

Yousef Al-Qaradhawi is an endorser of the Islamic Society of Boston's new mosque project, and has been used by them for promotional and fund-raising purposes. Fact.


Some commentators have pointed out the absurdity of a particular form of Muslim retaliation for the cartoons: turning around and threatening to publish cartoons mocking Jews, Judaism or the Holocaust. Beyond 800-lb elephant of the Der Sturmer cartoons that already inundate Muslim media, the reaction is just bizarre. You Westerners have attacked our prophet? Well... we hate the Jews! Do they think the Quai d'Orsay is losing sleep over this?

But if you look deeply, you realize the insane logic behind this Muslim response: they appear to believe that we in the West worship the Holocaust in some manner. They worship Islam and its prophet; we worship our Jewish controllers and their Holocaust totem. If I remember correctly, this isn't the first time I've heard Islamists make this claim.

How bizarre is the political culture in that part of the world.

Heard a great clip on the radio coming back from picking up my grandson from ski class. A recording of this rant was morphed back and forth with a Hitler rant. Although the languages differ, the tone, pitch and response from the listeners were virtually indistinguishable. And, of course, everything bad was the fault of the Jews.

I've been looking around for some quotes to back up my interpretation above. Haven't yet been able to turn anything up by a Muslim source, but here's Robert Faurisson in an interview with the Tehran Times:

"For many years now I have been telling my acquaintances in the Muslim world that the Jews and the Zionists want to impose the religion of the alleged "Holocaust" of the Jews on the whole world. It is normal that Jews and Zionists should seek to foist such an imposture on us, for it is the sword and the shield of the Jews in general and of the Jewish State in particular."

Another Revisionist source, Michael A. Hoffman II's interview with Iran's Mehr News Agency entitled Holocaustianity:

Mehr News January 4, 2006: As you know, nowadays the "holocaust" has been turned in to a religion. How has this come about?

Hoffman: The US Constitution mandates a separation of church and state; that is to say, there can be no establishment of any single religion as the official creed of the US government. The Judaics managed to get around this through the "Holocaust." By pretending that the "Holocaust" is history, they turn what is actually a synagogue into a "holocaust museum."

This is the case in Washington D.C. where President Ronald Reagan--the American leader who urged Saddam Hussein to wipe out the Islamic Republic of Iran--instituted the "US Holocaust Museum" on federal property. But this "museum" does not adhere to rules of evidence and does not submit its exhibits to critical inquiry and investigation. Skepticism is not allowed because the "Holocaust" does not entail the history of World War Two, rather it is a religion, the religion of Judaism for gentiles. To honestly question or doubt the details of the gas chambers is to be a "hater" and an "anti-semite." Historical accounts can be questioned and doubted freely. Religion cannot be questioned or doubted. Therefore, the "Holocaust" is a religious cult masquerading as history. The US "Holocaust Museum" is actually a synagogue comprising a house of worship for the first state religion of the United States of America, Holocaustianity.

Nice finds. There's no question they think the Holocaust is a "sacred cow" of the west, believed for extra-intellectual reasons (since clearly, it never happened, right?).

Riiight. :) How batshit insane do you have to be to believe the Holocaust was faked?

Well, perhaps I'm about to answer my own question. I found the quote that was rolling around in my head. I should have known it was by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:

There were those who created a myth about the Holocaust and insisted on it, even more than on the belief in the religion and the prophets. When a man expresses his lack of belief in God, the religion, and the prophets, they do not oppose him - but they will rise up against anyone who rejects the [claim regarding the truth] of the Holocaust...

"Syme: It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. You wouldn't have seen the [Newspeak] Dictionary 10th edition, would you Smith? It's that thick. [illustrates thickness with fingers] The 11th Edition will be that [narrows fingers] thick. Winston Smith: So, The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect? Syme: The secret is to move from translation, to direct thought, to automatic response. No need for self-discipline. Language coming from here [the larynx], not from here [the brain]" -1984 (film)
