Cordoba House Imam: ‘I Am a Jew, I Have Always Been One’

Jeffrey Goldberg points out the speech given by Imam Feisal Rauf, who’s been viciously maligned as a “radical Islamist” and worse, at a memorial service for Daniel Pearl.

In 2003, Imam Rauf was invited to speak at a memorial service for Daniel Pearl, the journalist murdered by Islamist terrorists in Pakistan. The service was held at B’nai Jeshurun, a prominent synagogue in Manhattan, and in the audience was Judea Pearl, Daniel Pearl’s father. In his remarks, Rauf identified absolutely with Pearl, and identified himself absolutely with the ethical tradition of Judaism. “I am a Jew,” he said.

There are those who would argue that these represent mere words, chosen carefully to appease a potentially suspicious audience. I would argue something different: That any Muslim imam who stands before a Jewish congregation and says, “I am a Jew,” is placing his life in danger. Remember, Islamists hate the people they consider apostates even more than they hate Christians and Jews. In other words, the man many commentators on the right assert is a terrorist-sympathizer placed himself in mortal peril in order to identify himself with Christians and Jews, and specifically with the most famous Jewish victim of Islamism. You can read the full text of his remarks on the B’nai Jeshurun website, but here is an especially relevant portion:

We are here to assert the Islamic conviction of the moral equivalency of our Abrahamic faiths. If to be a Jew means to say with all one’s heart, mind and soul Shma` Yisrael, Adonai Elohenu Adonai Ahad; hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One, not only today I am a Jew, I have always been one, Mr. Pearl.

If to be a Christian is to love the Lord our God with all of my heart, mind and soul, and to love for my fellow human being what I love for myself, then not only am I a Christian, but I have always been one Mr. Pearl.

And I am here to inform you, with the full authority of the Quranic texts and the practice of the Prophet Muhammad, that to say La ilaha illallah Muhammadun rasulullah is no different.

It expresses the same theological and ethical principles and values.

The more I hear about this man, the more I find myself respecting him. To stand up before such an audience, in a synagogue, and say “I am a Jew,” is like painting a big-ass bullseye on his forehead in the eyes of the fanatics.

Claiming that he’s all but on Hamas’ payroll is not only ignorant, it’s a fraking disgrace.

This is what a lot of Sufis are like, I’ve found. They emphasize the unifying elements in Islam.

As I’ve said:

Bin Laden would love to blow up this community center. Preferably while full of Sufis. Failing that, he’d love to disallow the building of any Sufi Mosque.

The right wing is doing Bin Laden’s work for him.

More like Gouldian contingency.

If you re-ran the same events in Earth’s evolutionary history one thousand times, you would get an equal number of disparate results, and likely very different outcomes in evolution. Darwin seemed to assume that humanity was an inevitable outcome of steady evolutionary progress along a uniformitarian model. Actually, our emergence was anything but inevitable.

Nope. Simply that if you wound the clock back and re-ran the simulation there would be enough drift from random events that the result by this time would not be the same. Cheetahs (or homo sapien) might not have made it through the bottleneck. Equus species survive in North America, etc.

The Tree of Life’s branches simply would not leaf and twig the same.

Saying it needed a push is implying that we’re a planned for outcome. Gould’s point was that we were not.

That we fit the puddle does not imply that it was dug in advance for us.

I beg your pardon??

The notion of contingency is utterly hostile to any “Intelligent Design” notion, if that is what you are getting at. Contingency presumes that evolution is random chance, although Simon Conway Morris argues here that :

“Gould sees contingency evolutionary history based on the luck of the draw—as the major lesson of the Burgess Shale. If you rerun the tape of evolution, he says, the results would surely come out differently. Some creature similar to Pikaia, a small eel-like animal with a rudimentary head, may have survived in Cambrian seas to become the ancestor of all vertebrates. If it hadn’t, Gould says, perhaps other—entirely different—major animal groups would have evolved instead from one of the Burgess Shale’s other “weird” body plans. Such a view, with its emphasis on chance and accident, obscures the reality of evolutionary convergence. Given certain environmental forces, life will shape itself to adapt. History is constrained, and not all things are possible.”

Stephan Jay Gould’s work of “Wonderful Life” was largely based on the groundbreaking research Simon Conway Morris did as a grad student in interpreting the famous Burgess Shale Fauna.

Yunno, these are theological details that we need not let interfere with a)our personal efforts to lead a better and more moral life and b) our joint efforts to create a better and more just society.

That seems pretty dismissive of religious Muslims, religious Christians and religious Jews. I imagine that many Muslims, Christians and Jews look to their religion and its teachings specifically to lead a better and more moral life for themselves, and to create a better and more just society. Your post implies that anyone who follows these faiths, including the Imam, whom I am pretty sure gets into the “theological details” of Islam (he is an Imam after all), is actually an impediment to a just and moral life personally, and a just and moral society.

McCain still kissing Bush’s ass.

I still hear about our “victory” in Iraq (if you can call setting up a kleptocratic, incompetent government that still murders Sunnis and cozy’s up to Iran a victory), but I notice that nobody seems able to really define what the hell we won.

Meanwhile, this week another suicide bomber kills dozens of army recruits in line.

We didn’t “win” anything. We gave the Iraqis enough breathing time to get their shit together and reach a political solution between the religious factions. They did not take their chance to reconcile. They snatched their own defeat from the jaws of victory…and so we leave them to their own devices.

I heard a good quote from a Marine Captain this morning on NPR:

Captain BROOKS: You know, I think right now actually there’s sort of a quiet pride in knowing that we accomplished our mission. I think no one really expected that we’d be, you know, on the deck of some ship signing a formal peace treaty with Osama bin Laden. I think most people realize that the Iraq War, and counterinsurgency in general, is won in a kind of slow and gradual process and that fading away is sort of the best outcome, that it feels good to know that we left our partners and allies who we felt were capable and ready to take over. And really that, you know, it’s nice to know too that the last Americans to leave Iraq won’t be fleeing on a helicopter from the roof of the Embassy.

The whole thing is pretty darned good…

By the logic of his statement, then, he is not a Christian. But we already knew that, didn’t we?

And yet he claims to be one.

Geez, do you have one metaphorical or poetic bone in your body?

His statement is supposed to be figurative, like “Today we are all New Yorkers [on 9/11]” or, in its epic fail mode, “Today we are all Georgians [McCain making no sense]”

American Thinker publishes the latest blatant misrepresentation of the Cordoba House:

americanthinker.com

“During a White House dinner celebrating Ramadan, the president found it appropriate to come out in favor of religious freedom. Not in support of Christians being attacked by janjaweed gunmen, or Bahá’ís tormented by Iranian mullahs, or Jews being stalked by assassins, or even American citizens being told that they cannot pray in public, but in favor of a shadowy foreign foundation with suspicious financing and disturbing jihadi connections that wishes to build some kind of victory monument congruent to the site of the 9/11 massacre.”

Of course, no substantive indication of what the author meant by “shadowy”, “suspicious financing”, or “jihadi connections”.

I guess his readers are just supposed to swallow that bit without chewing on it.

Undisturbed artifacts will detail lives of Civil War prisoners

The find was detailed Wednesday by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and Georgia Southern University.

The artifacts were found this spring on federal property, the currently closed Bo Ginn National Fish Hatchery. The camp’s location also extends into state property, the adjoining Magnolia Springs State Park.

Visitors got a chance to learn more about the dig in Wednesday’s open house at the state park. Only archaeologists and other officials are allowed on the actual dig site.

This discovery of so many Civil War-era items — including the smoking pipe, uniform buttons, a picture frame, coins, utensils, bullets and objects fashioned by Union prisoners — is unparalleled for many reasons, archaeologists said.

And the prisoner belongings from little-known Camp Lawton are believed to represent just a fraction of what will be uncovered, cleaned and analyzed for up to 30 years.

With the exception of a farmer’s plow 100 years ago, the 42 acres near Millen, Georgia, have been largely free of human touch

Even worse, the Americans most likely to pay for this political posturing are the US troops on the front lines. The Right and the neocons may profit at the polls but the price will be paid in blood, mostly by American soldiers and US allies in faraway places like Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq.

I was pretty sure I was going to want to drop a neutron bomb on hollywood if they fucked up LotR. They dodged a bullet there.

Now they want to remake Clue?? Also, supposedly they are remaking or making a prequel to Forbidden Planet…

‘Zombie Ants’ Controlled by Parasite Existed 46 Million Years Ago

Zombie ants,” or carpenter ants that are transformed into “zombies” by parasitic fungus, existed as far back as 48 million years ago, scientists have discovered.

Evidence of the parasitism was found on a fossilized leaf that grew in the Messel Pit, located in Germany, and was discovered by the University of Exeter’s Dr. David P. Hughes, who studies parasites that can take over the minds of their hosts. News of their findings was published on the university’s website.

The fungus, Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, has the ability to control the minds of infected carpenter ants and lead them away from their colony to a leaf that is an ideal reproductive site for the fungus.

Stephen Spielburg presents a three movie epic:

Rock - A new strata

Paper - The wrapper strikes back

Scissors - Return of the cutlery

Anecdote:
My brother and I do RPS to decide who picks up tabs after dinners, bar bills, and other miscellaneous decisions of that sort.

So, soon after he got married a RPS decision came up between him and his wife (who is a Chinese-descent Malaysian from Kuala Lumpor). So they did RPS and instead of a “normal” rock, paper, or scissor sign she did one my brother did not know.

Brother: “What’s that?”

S-in-law: “Bird. It drinks water (their equiv of paper), and it beaten by rock. (So it’s a Scissor equivalent.)

Brother (humorously): Bird?!? So it loses to all of them. Rock crushes bird, Scissors cut bird up. Paper wraps it for market.

Story proceeds to end in an unamused sister-in-law…

The sad part is there must be thousands of classic, mystery, science fiction, fantasy, romance, youth, biography and other literature that could be used as the basis for some awesome movies.

Unfortunately, such great material always seems to wind up in one of three piles:

1. Practically impractical: The cost of production and distribution would be so expensive that, even with the Dark Knight’s numbers, it wouldn’t make back the money spent. Or the technology needed to make the film “believable” simply doesn’t exist, like with Avatar.

2. Nothing’s Taboo (Except When It’s Taboo): Some of the material is considered “too risky” with current movie-goers, such as how the “Arab terrorist” market dried up back after 9/11. Movie execs refuse to touch such stuff unless it can be made “audience-friendly,” but in many cases doing so would pretty much make the movie pointless.

3. Development Hell: Execs love the idea, the numbers seem to match up…and then something goes horribly wrong. The director splits, the actor(s) split/die/are busy/etc, the creator has second-thoughts about agreeing to the adaptation, the economy crashes, etc. The list of movies sitting in Development Hell reads like a “who’s who” of every major cultural fad in the last 30-40 years.

A comment from Spencer’s sewer:

I don’t believe Mr Spencer is anti-Muslim, just anti-Islam, because he attacks Westerners who support Islam as much, if not more than, native born Muslims.

That passes for an explanation of why being a bigot is not being a bigot in the anti-muslim circles. It’s similar to “I’m not anti-Semitic, I’m anti-Zionist,” except it’s more like “I’m not anti-Jew, I’m anti-Jewish.”

The sad part is there must be thousands of classic, mystery, science fiction, fantasy, romance, youth, biography and other literature that could be used as the basis for some awesome movies.

There is a lot of original work just laying there, unable to get out of the “known quantity” requirement for financing. Some of this work is as good or better than what we have seen in the past.

re: #257 PT Barnum

Wasn’t he the guy who directed Starship Troopers too? One of the worst adaptations of a classic novel ever.

Best review of Starship Troopers I ever saw was in a wargame company’s house magazine. The review was by a former army officer and simply reviewed the movie on the basis of the military shown and in terms of organization, armament, and logistics. Scathing from top to bottom, and openly referred to the M.I. basic unit apparently being the “mob” given their lack of squad tactics and organization.

There was an old Sci-fi series called “Space, Above and Beyond” or something like that in the mid 1990s (IIRC). My willing suspension of disbelief for that series went out the window once it became clear that the main characters doubled as fighter pilots *and* ground-pounders (basic infantry.)

The problem was they didn’t go with any setting, they just threw a bunch of gimmicks in a box, shook it up and called it a film.

And Jeremy got paid, so what does he care?

I can say with relative security there will never be a live action D&D movie featuring Drizzt or any other Drow.

I never read Forgotten Realms (a lot of Dragonlance, though :p ). Why do think so? A drow is a dark elf, right? On it face, a short guy with some practice with swords should be able to pull it off. Make-up doesn’t seem especially difficulty either — pointy ears, body paint, maybe contact lenses… No?

I do that to friends of mine with more complex movies/shows. And when I get it right (which is about 3/4 of the time) it pisses them off.

When you read a lot and watch classic films you’ve seen a lot of the plot twists and standards expected of the genre. So you just have to watch for the clues that seem to be required in the script.

It’s a very good coming of age story set against an interstellar war. With a big dollop of Heinlein’s “how about this!” political stuff mixed in.

He wrote very readable stories. The prose flows, the action keeps up, and the side commentary is not dominating (YMMV at what point the Brain Eater got him).

One studio could just continue making movies based on Philip K. Dick novels. I’d love to see ‘The Man in the High Castle’ made into a movie. The only really good movie based on a Dick novel (well short story) was Blade Runner, the others have fallen flat with me.

And I’d shit a brick if someone made a movie out of Gibson’s ‘Mona Lisa Overdrive’ or Pynchon’s ‘V’.

re: #324 DaddyG

I’m really enjoying the Iain M Banks and Alistair Reynolds stuff. I’ve also gone back and re-read Poul Anderson and Heinlein lately. Its mind candy for me when work is done and I ride the bus home.

I’m a big fan of Banks and Bujold personally. Through a friend of mine I’ve been reading older stuff by Drake. Not reading much sci-fi recently in favor of filling out a few areas of military history. WW2 Pacifc Theatre for the most part, but also been reading Balkowski’s books on D-Day and the period immediately afterwards. (Both of these aligning with war gaming. The former with a game called “Silent War” and the latter with a solitaire “D:DAY Omaha Beach” game*.)

* - Which is simply nasty in certain facets. Balkowski writes about one of the assault companies essentially getting annihilated in front of one of the German defense positions and if you can easily watch the game generate the same result. (The history on this company in the invasion is very sketchy since practically no one survived the assault to make a report about what really happened to them.)

I suspect one of the difficulties with getting a really good novel into script form is capturing the internal dialogue of the characters in an intelligent way without resorting to a “wonder years” narration gimmick.

Orson Scott Card’s Ender series, Heinleins Stranger in a Strange Land, Asimovs Foundation series… all of them rely pretty heavily on exploring the thoughts and feelings of their characters.

It may be why short stories are often better vehicles for Sci Fi than novels.

IIRC, Gibson basically washed his hands of Hollywood after Johnny Mnemonic and absolutely refuses to allow any director near his work unless they can convince him that they will do them justice.

So far, no director has met his approval, or so I understand.

re: #187 Kragar (Proud to be Kafir)

More disturbingly, there’s a parasitic worm called the Lancet Fluke that does something very similar.

In order to complete their reproductive cycle, Lancet Flukes have to somehow end up in the digestive system of a cow. To do this, they rely on snails and also commandeer the nervous systems of ants.


* Adult worms in the liver of the definitive host produce eggs that are washed out in the bile, mixed with the stool, and passed from the body.

* Land snails feed on decaying animal droppings and ingest the eggs, whereupon the eggs hatch, releasing miracidia.


* Miracidia migrate through the gut wall into the snail’s digestive gland, where they multiply asexually. Cercariae are produced. The snail is the first intermediate host for the fluke.

* Cercariae exiting the snail’s tissues are encased in a coating of slime, which is left behind on the vegetation that the snail travels over. Transforming to metacercariaie, the parasites can be very numerous (hundreds in one slime ball) and are protected from drying out by the slime encasing them.

* Foraging ants collect the slime balls and carry them back to the nest, where the slime balls are eaten. Metacercariae encyst in the ant’s body cavity and become infective to the definitive host. One metacercaria travels to the ant’s nervous tissue and encysts there, an event which profoundly influences the ant’s behavior from then on - scientists are still unsure of how this works.

* Infected ants crawl to the tops of blades of grass in the cool evenings and early mornings and cling there. This is the time when herbivores are grazing—the ant’s strange behavior makes the insect much more likely to be eaten by a grazing animal! In the heat of the day, when the dew dries up and animals rest in the shade, the ant that has not been eaten resumes its normal activities, only to ascend again when things cool down.

* Metacercariae in ants that have been eaten migrate up the bile duct into the liver and mature to adult flukes in under two months. At about three months after infection, the worms begin producing eggs.

A lot of it also has to do with the writers and/or their families either asking small fortunes for the rights, refusing to sell the rights due to fear that the material will be mistreated, or the rights getting passed around from studio to studio due to the movies inevitably ending up in Development Hell.

And not in the standard Hollywood “We changed time, we gotta change it back!” sort of way, where at the end everything’s “back to normal” or “better than normal.” Adapting “The Man in the High Castle” or something in a similar vein would be awesome to see, provided the director could take it seriously.
