Cane’s List of characters

January 26, 2006

Hi…Cane Toad here. When I was asked to write for this blog, I jumped at the chance. However, a few of my friends wanted to be included…how could I say no. I told them that this would be a fair analysis forum, open to well thought discourse. They responded that they always are fair and willing to listen to others. They will look at news stories in the Sydney Morning Herald and discuss them with me and I will write up their comments. Just the other day, I asked Joanne (from Minto) about her thoughts on Hamas. She responded, “isn’t dat sh** just made out of chickpeas.” What a sweet girl. For an ALP supporter, I think this is well thought out discourse, don’t you?


Okay, an introduction is in order. I put up their pictures with a little blurb about each one of my friends.


See Yah,

Toad

The Pope and Ignorance

January 24, 2006

Several weeks ago, DhimmiWatch/JihadWatch brought to my attention the report that the Pope does not believe Islam is capable of reform.
After picking my jaw up off the ground, and wiping away the coffee stains from my keyboard, I harked back to the time just after the Pope’s ordination. He met with German Muslim leaders and declared that he was going to make dialogue and understanding with Islam a priority whilst he was Pope. At the time, I thought, great, another dhimmi! 😉

I then proceeded to the source, Hugh Hewitt’s interview of Father Joseph Fessio, a student and a friend of the Pope’s. Here’s the interesting part:

“…the thesis that was proposed by this scholar was that Islam can enter into the modern world if the Koran is reinterpreted by taking the specific legislation, and going back to the principles, and then adapting it to our times, especially with the dignity that we ascribe to women, which has come through Christianity, of course. And immediately, the Holy Father, in his beautiful calm but clear way, said well, there’s a fundamental problem with that, because he said in the Islamic tradition, God has given His word to Mohammed, but it’s an eternal word. It’s not Mohammed’s word. It’s there for eternity the way it is. There’s no possibility of adapting it or interpreting it, whereas in Christianity, and Judaism, the dynamism’s completely different, that God has worked through His creatures. And so, it is not just the word of God, it’s the word of Isaiah, not just the word of God, but the word of Mark. He’s used His human creatures, and inspired them to speak His word to the world, and therefore by establishing a Church in which he gives authority to His followers to carry on the tradition and interpret it, there’s an inner logic to the Christian Bible, which permits it and requires it to be adapted and applied to new situations. I was…I mean, Hugh, I wish I could say it as clearly and as beautifully as he did, but that’s why he’s Pope and I’m not, okay? That’s one of the reasons. One of others, but his seeing that distinction when the Koran, which is seen as something dropped out of Heaven, which cannot be adapted or applied, even, and the Bible, which is a word of God that comes through a human community, it was stunning.”

However, after seeing that the Washington Times has at long last picked up on this, I thought this story worth unearthing.

Funnily enough, I also dug this up in the course of finding these above linked articles. Here the Pope is quoted as saying that allowing Turkey into the EU would be “an enormous mistake” because “adding Turkey would dilute the culture of what he considers a Christian continent” and that Turkey “…always represented another continent… in permanent contrast with Europe.”

Seems that I judged poor Benedict too soon. He may the most prominent mainstream anti-Dhimmi out there. It is also bleedingly obvious that the Pope and I agree on at least one matter without question.

UPDATE: Seems like Father Fessio misheard/misunderstood. The Pope said that the Koran was beyond reform, not Islam. Sorta like Catholacism…anyone remember the Diet of Worms?

The Wombat Report: Mostly Good News

January 24, 2006

Listen Up, Wombateers !

Welcome to the completely irregular and possibly once-off Wombat report, where the news today is mostly good. In fact, it is super. Though perhaps not dooper. Especially if anyone speaks Ukrainian. Then the latter is quite close to a good word to describe Keyser Trad, speaking of which we start with some FANTASTIC news:

Especially if you live in the city of Sydney and are a bit tired of you-know-who denying any knowledge of you-know-what while the Police have only decided to acknowledge that it even happened at all only a month later. Miraculously, today NSW Police have grown a pair, while Morris Iemma is performing cosmetic Neocon surgery on several of the State’s institutions…(Warning: the second linked article may make you gloat and giggle incessantly! Don’t you love it when lefties complain?)

The Aussie blogosphere should bloody well rejoice at the return of Dar-Al-Harb’s Pimp Daddy Blog Brutha Like no Other Mike Jericho. (Not that you would tell from the name of his new blog.) Yes, this guy is arguably even more incisive than Tim Blair (may Allah stregthen his typing fingers) and he definitely pulls no punches, while landing some well placed knees below the ROP’s increasingly metaphorically mixed belt. Lets hope Mike keeps on blogging and gets quoted by Mary Kostakidis, Mike Iemma and Pope Benedict.

Relative sanity prevailed in Canada. A minority government kind of sanity perhaps, but sanity nonetheless. I would like to say that Canada is about to rejoin the Anglosphere, and I am sure that Stephen Harper would like to say the same. Sadly, any government in coalition with Le Bloc Dhimmiqois will have some difficulty in this department.

John Bolton drew a line in the sand and reminded everyone of what a badass he is, and what a much larger badass the US can be. He said that Bush will not tolerate a nuclear armed Iran, and suggested that the UN sponsored terror cheerleader organisation UNRWA should be dismantled. And it is only Tuesday. This guy is gooooood.

Shaul Mofaz is not too far behind. Osirak 2, coming soon to an underground bunker NEAR YOU, MULLAH-BOY…

Uber-dhimmi Not-So-Gorgeous George Galloway is not doing himself any favours.

Hafez-al-Assad is getting more desperate and loonier as the UN investigation into the Hariri murder closes on him. (Hey, is the UN actually doing something right ? My my…)

Denmark stands fast against dhimmitude, Norway follows. Moderate Muslims act less Muslim and more Moderate, and actually voice displeasure at their very Muslim, not very Moderate leaders ! Somebody pinch me. Yep, right there. aaaahhhh…. That’s better… Hey, wait a minute, I am still typing, leave me alone!

I leave you on a light note of unapolagetic schadenfreude…

There is no bloody weather report here so you can all bugger [Crash note: this is borderline Wombat] off now! (a note for our more sensitive American Wombateers: Aussies use the word “bugger” like you use the word “dang”. It is ugly, suggestive of something very unplesant but used so often that it has lost its offensive edge. In this context it just means “go”. Anyway, deal with it).

V. Wombat, your intrepid would-be reporter and link plagarist, signing off.
P.S.: Crash please fix typos because I cannot be arsed [Crash note: this is borderline Wombat].

P.P.S.: Yes Americans, “arsed” is a verb that is synonymous with “bothered”.

Bandicoot Crashes into the Party

January 19, 2006

Hi all

I am a hard to pidgeon-hole.

Who am I: I am a minority (very much so), I am conservative, I am a Christian (of the conservative protestant flavour) and I am a lover of beautiful maths.

What I love to do: Read political and religious books, listen to good music (in spite of a lawsuit from Sony)

Where I live: The WEsT SiDe!

What helps me pay the bills: I provide quantitative consultancy services…and no I don’t need more work!
What you can expect from me: sarcastic short posts, the odd topical post, general upkeep of the blog, loads of spelling mistakes, misquoted phrases and idioms and some serious lefty-sledging!

What I loathe: Lefty self-pity and suicidialism and stubborness (the latter of which I suffer from).

Peace.

Hi Folks,

Welcome to Tankstream, a new blog from the Anglosphere’s undisputed antipodean capital, as well as what is rapidly becoming the default capital of New Zealand.

The Tank Stream kept the early Sydney settlement alive, and this blog seeks to similarly… Uhhh… Look, let Gekko explain, he is the one with the metaphors and the history and the Australiana. I do cheap jokes and anti-Dhimmi polemic that scores 10/10 on the Victorian “officially MeanyNastyUnPC stuff” scale. Oh, and Mohammad was a vindicitive, megalomaniacal, murderous, raping, psychopathic pedophile whom his followers emulate as the ideal man.

But I digress. This is a quick introduction to the team from your new third-best friend Wombat, who promises you a steady stream of lowbrow humour, vindictive polemics, news, gratiutious blog linkage bordering on plagarism and All-Western Pride, All-Anti-Dhimmi, All-Da-Time (or whenever I get to blog)

Please also meet my co-bloggers:

Crash is our Outer Suburbs correspondent, valiantly fighting the Good Fight, as well as a lawsuit from Sony. He and I have slightly different views on the Holy Trinity (See Below).

Uh, Crash, you do realise that Lizards and Toads are not marsupials, heck, they are not even mammals ? Just sayin’….

Gekko is just what you expect, a Lizardoid of the old school. Gekko has evolved past his 80’s incarnation played by an inadequate Michael Douglas. He is the very model of a gentleman, a scholar, a passionate Anglospherian, a gifted writer and a guy who lives in a much nicer place than mine. He brings refinement, depth, knowledge, experience, flair, subtlety, dress sense, and all those other things that the rest of us lack. So what the heck are the rest of us doing here ? Just deal with it, Gekko, you are stuck with us all…

Cane. Good GHOD. Where to begin? Cane is Living Proof that deep scholarship, sharp wit and a foul mouth actually can go together. And if not, too bad. Cane is… Well… You’ll see. Toad Hall has fallen on very sad days indeed.

Do not let your little children or more attractive housepets near Cane.

A little bit about me:

Wombat: A Vengeful Marsupial.

Location: Right on Da Harbour.

Job: Makin Richez

Hobby: Chasin Bitchez (Note however that there is no claim of great success here)

Obsessions: confronting the global Jihad and its suicidalist fellow travellers. Shaking the Western world awake. Confronting self-hating Westerners, lefties, Islamists, fascists and the ignorant moonbats that now pass for the general public. At 4 am in the morning. In my underwear. Did you really need to know that?

Religion: Faith in the eventual appearance of A Holy Trinity consisting of Moreena Baccarin from Firefly, Eva Habermann from Lexx and my own poor self, all in a hot tub…

Habits: Like any Wombat:
Eats. Roots*. Shoots. And Leaves.
Only Vengefully.

* A verb, with a somewhat different meaning in the land of OZ.

Things I will probably only do once: Impersonate a cute fat marsupial online.

Things I will continue to do until the coming of the Holy Trininty (see above): Impersonate a cute, fat primate in real life.

Welcome to Tankstream
