Bolt offers up politicians and the media as the main culprits in the rest of his little rant, but fails to recognise that the people who are NOT 'Charlie' are his managers and colleagues, and yes, politicians, and that 700,000 people marching in France yesterday were NOT the media and NOT politicians, and therefore don't deserve his utter disrespect.
Bolt needs to do better with picking his targets, and if he is so outraged, why isn't he ranting and rallying his newspaper and every newspaper in the world to defy terrorism by printing the satire that so offends the barbaric and brainwashed? It's easier to diss and mock the people who want this to happen, who are marching in support of this very thing. Bolt should redirect his energies, unless his rant is all guts, no spine.
And when SBS filmed the then Mufti of Australia, Sheik Hilaly, praising suicide bombers as heroes in the Lakemba mosque just days before the September 11 attacks, it refused to air the footage for fear we might get the “wrong idea”.Are we really all Charlie? No, no and shamefully no
This will go on. Be sure of it. Your ruling classes will not easily admit to having made an error that cannot now be fixed. It will prefer oppression to freedom, if that brings at least the illusion of peace — and many may even think they are right.
Hear already the lies.
You are told Muslim groups condemn the killings as unIslamic. Yet the Koran and Hadith preach death to unbelievers who mock Islam, and tell of Mohammed killing poets, singing girls and others who made fun of him.
No greater authority than the Ayatollah Khomeini, the then spiritual ruler of Iran, ordered the killing of writer Salman Rushdie for making mock of Islam in his The Satanic Verses.
We are also told the pen is mightier than the sword, but tell that to the people in the Charlie Hebdo office who found their fistfuls of pens no match for two Kalashnikovs.
Tell that now to even the brave leaders of Jyllands-Posten, who, after years of jihadist plots against their staff have had enough, refusing now to republish cartoons from Charlie Hebdo for fear of yet more attacks.
“It shows that violence works,” it admitted.
Everywhere you will find other papers making the same call.
We are all Charlie?
Bull. Absolute self-serving rubbish. The sell-outs are everywhere and will grow stronger.
The West’s political leaders have already told Muslim leaders they agree that mocking Islam is a sin, and have even passed laws — in France, too — making it unlawful.
They have attacked the very few journalists and politicians who dared warn against the Islamist threat.
Some now back Muslim demands for a boycott of Israel or at least greater recognition for the terrorists who run large parts of Palestinian territory.
Anything for peace, even if it means submission.
And for all the protests this past week, submission is what you must expect.
