# We're done so far.

Research: Reviewing Bunt's Islam in the Digital Age, and following links
and links. There is rhetoric that stands out; some is reproduced below in
dialog, without attribution; all writing is wryting in this space.

Oddly, what emerges is bliss, that not only are words open to other words,
but the performativity of speech is, perhaps, already a therapeutic; in
the midst of cries, there are moments of silence.

Without hope, there is abject depression, decathexis; with decathexis,
defuge, the breath stops and stops itself. O comfort of the barren
grounds! One pulls back from the gate; Arbeit never macht frei.

# We're done so far.

Please keep in mind: Only a living bug is a good bug. Bugs are perfect,
they allways do their jobs.

Dear Nazi Pigs and Muslim cowards, We want to thank you. Because your hate
created us and made us stronger. With every swas sticker you draw, and
head you cut off, we become more ferocious. While you meet in mosques and
march on Skokie, we were being tested in battle. So look left, look right,
were dark skinned too, or blond and blue eyed just like you, trained by
the best and here amongst you. See you at the meetings, were watching you.

Think about it - don't be just another whore. Thanks. "Removed by C@ndi
with an eye" is apparently all that remains of what was the message board
forum formerly known as "ITS HAPPENNING." IH was an attempt to bring
together diverse parties from around the world to exchange opposing views
and share information. Unfortunately not all the dialog was friendly and
intended in the spirit of universal awareness.... as such, some have taken
it upon themselves to delete, corrupt, and and render unusable that which
was the IH board. IH was a purely not for profit operation and the cost
and stress of operations far exceeded any donations made toward
maintenance or upgrading as such there, will be NO rebuild. Those who gave
the most were those that gave their time for free for the thankless job of
trying to moderate an unmoderated board. This was in itself an almost
undefinable task, but those, and you know who you are, that did this, rose
to the occasion. To all of the posters who have made IH their home, we set
you free now, as this really is the end of the road for "ItsHappening" it
was fun while it lasted. Goodbye.

Explaining the second concept in the design he said it involves taking the
pedestrians from the source, not letting them accumulate into a huge crowd
that you cannot deal with like what we got now Jamaraat area, he said.
[...] The third concept is to make the stoning process much easier than
what it is nowadays by changing the shape of the Jamaraat from round to
ellipse, so that the crowd can be divided into various groups from various
directions. That will make the flow go through much easier, and the pebble
throwing process very fast and safe, for the people. A simulation model
has been designed specially for these, and Jamaraat will be given optimum
width and optimum length. The Jamaraat will be changed from a column to a
very wide wall so that it can be clearly visible and comfortable for the
pilgrims to throw their pebbles.

No wonder why Hitler wanted tocook all u Ann Franks..... All u dirty jews
are rich or in hollywood wut do u have to bitch about? the Holocaust? My
Lutheran Grandpa died for u  ungreateful slobs..... Your website is trash
all of yer kind needs to be sent to Aushwitz

Question: What is the ruling regarding washing the stones for stoning (the
Jamaraat)? Response: They should not be washed. Rather, if a person washes
them with the intention of worshipping Allaah (by this action), then this
is an innovation because the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) did
not do this.

On 10th Thul-Hijjah I along with my elder son went to Jamaraat for Ramee.
When we were at a distance of 10 meter from the Jamrah, we had to pull out
without Ramee; and on return both of us were hit by a speedy motorcyclist
- we fell down - sustained minor injuries - police helped and we came back
to our camp at Muzdalifah.  In the evening I and my elder son went again
and stoned the Jamrah Aqbah (the Big one) on our behalf and on behalf of
my wife and the younger fat son.

This summarily had me banned from the forum. I am not that terribly upset
about being banned. However, it does highlight the type of muddle-headed,
biased, blind support of terror that has all but guaranteed the
re-election of George W. Bush. Most Americans do not support terrorism.
Yet the left is going out of its way to coddle terrorists, even inviting
terrorist and terrorist apologist under the Democratic tent.

O believers, do not expect your enemies to end with the land of Iraq, they
shall try to take over the lands of Syria and Egypt and Arabia and Iran �
if they could not put their agents onto power, as they did in the Gulf
lands, they shall never accept that the Muslims have a strong state.

You can go anywhere or NOwhere

Nothing is worth our children dying for unless there is a maniac or (sic)
the loose.

Ultimately, our goal is The Supreme Existance, the Muslims call that Allah
(litterally The God), the Followers of Jesus(A) call Him God, the
Followers of Moses(A) call him YHWA, the Followers of other Prophets have
used other names, the bottom line is the goal is one and same - the
Supreme Existance and Creator Sustainer of the Universes.

Then Abu Abd Allah (al- Sadiq), peace be on him, said: 'Brother of the
people of Egypt, you think that the time forces them (the sun and the
moon, day and night) to come successively, then why does the time not
force them to come back? And if the time was able to force them to come
back, why does it not take them away?

Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth; His light is as a niche
in which is a lamp, and the lamp is in a glass, the glass is as though it
were a glittering star; it is lit from a blessed tree, an Olive neither of
east nor of the west, the oil of which would well-nigh give light though
no fire touched it, Light upon Light, Allah guides to His light whom He
pleases; and Allah strikes out parables for men; and Allah all things doth

This is why The Pink Swastika, a comprehensive study of homoeroticism in
Germany by Scott Lively & Kent Abrams is considered high heresy in America
while still occupying a place on the reference shelves at Yad Vashem.
Lively & Abrams confirm that Nazism was a movement born of the homoerotic
German subculture of macho homosexuals, people who fostered a violent,
anti-Semitic, and pederast-enshrining mindset, as opposed to Germany's
"femmes," the docile subculture representing perhaps 10% of German
homosexuals who condemned pedophilia, were less likely to harbor
anti-Semitic proclivities, and may claim legitimately that some of them
were German homosexuals hypocritically persecuted by the Nazis - by macho

Due to the israel judaism barbarism against your people and to your noble
figth against it is why i decided to write you, it was a litle hard to
find your page, but finally i did; this writing means to congratulate you
and show my admirations and support on your work, because i share the same
feelings against jewish people, because even i have read the protocols of
zion i had the conviction of what jewish mean, my people is also tramped
by them, and i am not sure if my country shares my feelings about you,
cause most of them are mediatized, and influenced by the united states
culture, but not all of us have the eyes covered, some of us relize of
what is going on in the world, so once again want to express my support
and admiration from M�xico, and even there exists a great distance between
your country, your culture and your language there exists a link that
unite us as brothers and makes us feel the need to be together and share
the joy and suffering and support each other. is for sale! $1,088.00  Buy Now

O people! When a person meditates upon the histories of past nations and
populations, he will be instantly amazed at the revolutions and
transformations they went through. For instance, there was a pioneering
nation (i.e., the Muslim nation) which led the world for many centuries
but then, it faltered and lost its leading role; it fell in the midst of
blind imitation and followed the paths of other nations in terms of
manners and beliefs. Once it was at the acme of development and reached
the highest level of power and glory, but it later fell to the lowest
point and was afflicted with misery. It died after it had been living,
deteriorated after it was once flourishing and withered after it was
blossoming. It was the nation that discovered the sources of knowledge and
developed the Islaamic civilization and sciences, which the West later
obtained significantly, without having to exert the least of efforts. Thus
it seems as if the gates towards progress had been shut off for the
Muslims as they turned into artificial consumers of the Western
civilization. They even began to adopt certain features of it, which were
originally theirs but had been stolen away from them.

O Muslims! When a Muslim blindly imitates the West, he turns into a loyal
supporter of their beliefs and customs; he is like one who tries to reform
something but spoils it while he is unaware. He is just like a defeated
follower, like a baby who bites and severs his mother's breast while it is
in his mouth. Such a person does not know that blind copying of the West
involves hidden hazards and that our rights, honor and dignity are
violated by such imitation and imbecilic pride

Subject: [InterTheory] Virility and Slaughter

"A billion words; the endless chatter. Yet, at the core of civilization, a
deep pathology: The slaughter of young men."

Richard A. Koenigsberg



In the First World War, 1914-1918, it is estimated that nine-million
soldiers were killed, twenty-one million wounded, and nearly eight million
taken prisoner or reported missing. Thus, of sixty-five million troops
mobilized, nearly thirty-eight million, or fifty- eight percent were
casualties. What was the meaning of this massive episode of civilizational
destruction? Why were millions of young men killed or mutilated?

As one studies the battles of the First World War and learns of the
prodigious number of human beings killed in each of them, the mind boggles.
What was going on? What kept the war going? Why did leaders persist in
sending young men to die? Why didn't Generals alter their battle strategy
when it was evident that what they were doing did not work? Why did soldiers
rarely rebel against their fate? Why did they continue to fight on even
though death stared them in the face?


The complete paper by Richard A. Koenigsberg is available for the first time
as an on-line publication.

The high casualty rate during this war reflected the nature of the battle
strategy. "Attack" occurred when massive numbers of troops along the front
line, supported by artillery fire from thousands of guns, got out of
trenches and ran into "no man's land," hoping to cut the barbed wire,
assault enemy trenches and break through the opposing line. Attacks were
nearly always unsuccessful. Here is Modris Eksteins' description of the
fundamental pattern:

The victimized crowd of attackers in no man's land has become one of the
supreme images of this war. Attackers moved forward usually without seeking
cover and were mowed down in rows, with the mechanical efficiency of a
scythe, like so many blades of grass. "We were very surprised to see them
walking," wrote a German machine gunner of his experience of a British
attack at the Somme. "The officers went in front. I noticed one of them
walking calmly, carrying a walking stick. When we started firing, we just
had to load and reload. They went down in the hundreds. You didn't have to
aim, we just fired into them."

In the following report, British General Rees describes the massacre of his
own brigade as they moved toward German lines.

They advanced in line after line, dressed as if on parade and not a man
shirked going through the extremely heavy barrage, or facing the machine gun
and rifle fire that finally wiped them out. I saw the lines, which advanced
in such admirable order melting away under fire. Yet not a man wavered,
broke the ranks, or attempted to come back. I have never seen, indeed could
never have imagined such a magnificent display of gallantry, discipline and
determination. The reports from the very few survivors of this marvelous
advance bear out what I saw with my own eyes: that hardly a man of ours got
to the German Front line.

It is evident that in spite of the total failure of the attack, General Rees
regarded the destruction of his brigade in a positive light. He observes
that not a man "shirked" in the face of the machine gun and rifle fire that
wiped them out. He is proud that even though his troops were "melting away
under fire," the soldiers continued to advance "in admirable order." In the
face of the barrage of bullets, his men did not waver, break ranks, or
attempt to come back. The General gushes that he had never seen such a
magnificent display of "gallantry, discipline and determination." Although
his soldiers were slaughtered and "hardly a man of ours got to the German
Front line," he characterizes the advance as "marvelous."

Or perhaps is it more accurate to say that the General believed the assault
was marvelous precisely because British soldiers had been slaughtered. The
General does not view the battle from the perspective of success or failure.
His perception is shaped, rather, by his judgment of the morale and spirit
demonstrated by his troops. It is the fact that his soldiers were being
riddled with bullets--yet continued to advance--that leads him to conclude
that the attack had been "marvelous."

General Rees responded positively to the slaughter of his own men because he
viewed their behavior as a testimonial to the depth of their devotion. By
virtue of the fact that they did not shirk but continued to advance in the
face of machine-gun fire, his troops showed that they were committed
absolutely to the ideals of Great Britain, the British Empire and its
leaders. Willingness to walk into machine-gun fire provided definitive proof
that the soldiers loved their country.

Soldiers during the First World War were required to adopt a posture of
absolute submission to their nation and its leaders--obedience unto death.
Conscientious objectors in Britain during the First World War were
disenfranchised. Some thought that soldiers who had not seen overseas
service should have the right to vote taken away from them. In the First
World War, the social consensus was that the body of the soldier belonged to
the nation-state. The nation could use these bodies as it saw fit.

War requires that the soldier hand over his body to his country. In order to
encourage men to do be willing to do this, the soldier's role is represented
in terms such as honor, masculinity and virility. In the First World War,
however, being honorable, masculine and virile was equivalent to entering a
situation where there was substantial probability that one would be
slaughtered. One demonstrated one's virility by getting out of a trench and
walking into machine gun fire. Such is the strange paradox of war: That
"goodness" or morality requires a posture of abject submission; that "love"
requires self- destruction; that willingness to die becomes the highest form
of virtue.
