And the Oscar Goes to ... an Islamic Propaganda Movie

I went to see Slumdog Millionaire the other night, just looking to be entertained. Instead, I found myself being indoctrinated with pro-Islam propaganda. (WARNING: read no further if you don't want me to "ruin" the plot for you).

The protagonists of the film are brothers Jamal and Salim Malik, young Muslim boys from the slums of Mumbai, India. In one of the opening scenes, Jamal and Salim are orphaned when an angry Hindu mob attacks their slum while yelling, "Kill them! They are Muslims!" The Hindu mob kills their mother, thus leaving the poor Muslim youths to fend for themselves. Where have we seen this before? Bollywood, Palliwood -- it's all the same. Of course, no mention of the fact that the "the Mohammedan conquest of India was probably the bloodiest story in history."

Interestingly, this bit of pro-Islam propaganda was not in the original book. Indeed, it appears to have been specially written just for the movie:

The Mumbai Hindu-Muslim riots played no role in the book, as the ethnic heritage of the main character was uncertain. In the book, the character of Jamal is instead named 'Ram Mohammad Thomas'. He was given a Hindu name, Muslim name and Christian name by the village elders in order to maintain the balance between all the religious communities after his mother abandoned him after birth.

Perhaps CAIR was consulted on the movie?

In any case, as the story progresses, Jamal becomes the "good boy" and big brother Salim becomes the "bad boy." Salim joins a gang, starts drinking and abusing women, whereas Jamal keeps to the straight and narrow. Salim even rapes and beats Latika, his little brother's love interest. Jamal finds this unforgivable and two boys go their own ways.

Have no fear, though -- Islam saves the day! Towards the end of the movie, Salim becomes a devout Muslim. Suddenly, Salim finds his moral compass. He sets Latika free, tells her to go find Jamal and kills the gang leader who had been holding Latika prisoner. In the final scene, after having killed the gang leader and having himself been fatally shot, Salim utters his final words, "God is great." ("Allahu Akbar").

Did Slumdog Millionaire deserve Best Picture? Maybe in Riyadh.

Obama Approval Ratings Hit All-Time Low

The latest poll from Rasmussen shows that Obama's approval rating has dropped to 57%, an all-time low since Obama assumed the presidency. Similarly, Obama's disapproval rating has increased to 41%, which is a new high.

Despite the media's insistence that Obama is spectacularly popular, the reality is that Obama's approval ratings are virtually identical to those of George W. Bush at the comparable stage of Bush's presidency. And as the economy continues to tank, we can expect that Obama will be below 50% in a matter of time.

A Messiah? Nay.

Queen of England: "Long Live the Iranian Revolution"

On the official website of UK embassy in Iran, the Queen of England passes along her "warmest greetings" to genocidal Iranian mullahs in celebration of the 30-year anniversary of the Islamic revolution in Iran:

Queen Elizabeth's message to the Iranian people (09/02/2009)

It gives me great pleasure to send the people of the Islamic Republic of Iran my warmest greetings on the celebration of your National Day, together with my best wishes for good fortune and happiness in the coming year.


What's up with these Royals? We all know that Prince Charles may have already converted to Islam. I wonder how many other Royals are practicing Muslims?

Of course, the pro-fascist stance of the British Royal Family is nothing new. During WWII, King Edward VIII met with Hitler and did the full Nazi salute. Here is a picture of this disgraceful meeting:

And even the regular politicians in England are now giving me the heebie-jeebies. For example, I still don't know what to make of the Koran-reading, Mohamed-loving Tony Blair. And the former mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, is openly anti-Semitic and enthusiastically pro-Hamas. Is it any wonder that England just banned Geert Wilders from entering the country because he dared to criticize Islam?

There's a reason they call it "Londonistan."
