Modern Protocols

This piece from the Muslim Public Affairs Committee caught my eye:

“As suspected, and claimed on this blog over the weekend, the inflammatory anti-Muslim cartoons published in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten were a deliberate provocation designed to outrage and incite Muslims and thus engender support in Europe and America for the manufactured "clash of civilizations" engineered by the Straussian neocons.

As Christopher Bollyn writes for the American Free Press, the neocon operative behind the cartoon scheme is Flemming Rose, cultural editor of Jyllands-Posten, who has "has clear ties to the Zionist Neo-Cons." Rose "traveled to Philadelphia in October 2004 to visit Daniel Pipes, the Neo-Con ideologue who says the only path to Middle East peace will come through a total Israeli military victory. Rose then penned a positive article about Pipes, who compares 'militant Islam’ with fascism and communism," Bollyn reveals.”

The tone of article reminded me of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

Cunning eh? If we were to believe this nonsense, then the Danes are merely pawns of some wider conspiracy of Zionists [codeword for: Jews], Straussian neocons, Freemasons and who knows what else?

No matter the event, this paranoid style of politics invariability sees the hand of the ‘Elders’ behind it, and we know where that leads to ?

"and we know where that leads to ?"

We sure do, MB, we sure do ;-)

And cunning is our middle name, just don't call us cunning rants, please...

Anyhow, it was only expected, after all somebody sinister must pull the strings, so why not 'fess up? Saves time in the long run.

Never mind what the tone reminded you of, what about the facts?

Rose is one of a handful of Jews in Denmark, and has no Danish ancestry (he is from the Ukraine). He just happens to cosy up to Daniel Pipes, one of the leading mouthpieces of Islamophobia in the western world. Then he just happens to commission, not merely pick up, grossly provocative cartoons in the European country with more official Islamophobia than any other, where even the Queen has criticised her Muslim subjects. Then he just happens to tell the International Herald Tribune that he would never, never run a cartoon lampooning Ariel Sharon.

Nothing to see here, no collusion, no intent to offend...
