The Ultimate Insult

It has seemed to us that a good yardstick for approximating how ready we are to deal with Islam--as it ought to be dealt with--shows up as humor, at the expense of Islam. Humor can be benign or not. When it is benign, it is therapeutic. When it is not benign, it is a powerful weapon. In this case, we have True Believers who declared war on the USA, the West, civilization, knowledge, freedom, and happiness--all in the name of some moldy old crap that survived its own self-imposed Dark Ages. Yeah, we mean Islam.

We have seen a few potshots from Jay Leno and David Letterman, but a whole lot of kowtowing from the morally uncertain in the world. The world until recently seemed to have a case of the cat-got-its-tongue (or is it, the Muslims-got-their-heads?). Then came the CARTOON FLAP, originating over a dozen cartoons lampooning Islam and Muhammad, in a tiny European country that still believes in free minds and free actions, as rights.

What was the significance of the flap? Ali Sina in a fabulous interview put it this way:

"Muslims committed the huge blunder of revealing their vulnerability [cartoon
flap]. Now the world knows what hurts them. When you find your opponent’s weak
spot, it is exactly where you want to hit him."

Incidentally, that interview is entitled "An Interview with Ali Sina On Muslims in Europe By Jarek N. 2006/02/26." All Ali Sina quotes in this blog come from that interview.

Ali Sina, a former Muslim, did not stop there.

"Muslim psychology…is all pomposity and bravado. I give you my word that if Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated. Shame is a great motivator as well as deterrent. Do not underestimate the power of ridicule. This is serious stuff not a laughing matter…"


"When you find your opponent’s weak spot, it is exactly where you want to hit him… if Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated."


"How much ridicule is enough? Until it hurts. The pain of shame must become bigger than the comfort of clinging to this false fetish. When you see their eyes are popping out of their eyeballs, their veins bulging in their necks, foam forming at their mouths, and they are ready to explode, you know that the remedy is working. Give them more. They will either die of heart attacks or they will come to their senses and recover from this insanity."

No one has said it any better, and Ali Sina is "right on!"

Ali Sina also made a terrific recommendation:

Every one of us must become a cyberwarrior and mock Muhammad, Islam and the Muslims. Use your talent. Draw cartoons based on the hadith and the Quran. You can find tons of ridiculous stuff in these books to lampoon. Write articles, lyrics, jokes, plays, do whatever you can to ridicule Muhammad the prophet pretender and Muslims. Don’t heed to their howls and cries.

A new blog took Ali Sina's recommendation for action, and they created The Ultimate Insult. As they state right under their blog title, they are "Trying to discover just exactly what the 'ultimate insult' to Islam really is." You must admit, when people go nuts over absolutely everything, as Muslims do, finding out what really ticks them off presents a huge challenge.

They have risen to the challenge, and in the short life-span of this blog, there is much to get a kick out of, and all of it is at Islam's expense.

There are now several blogs poking fun at Islam and its nutsy followers. This is a very positive sign as we see it. It takes a real sense of moral certainty to feel free enough to ridicule the ridiculous, even if they threaten to remove your head from your body. This kind of derisive humor is not for Islamists' benefit. It is just the right medicine for us.

The Ultimate Insult is so opposite from political correctness, as it is from multiculturalism and cultural relativism. Not a whiffle of dhimmitude can be found on the site and won't be. You will find all the foregoing Ali Sina quotes in the blog's banner. Check out The Ultimate Insult .
