Killing Britney and Madonna

You know it's always baffled me that artists- be it in music, film, literature or art- have always refused to speak out against Islamist terrorism and the culture (if you can call it that) it tries to spread. Why do they seem, by and large, to view the major threat to their way of life to come from George Bush, Republicans in general or Christianity? Nope, they seem to have almost nothing negative to say about a culture that demands conversion, subjugation or death, that oppresses women, calls for the death of homosexuals, suppresses free speech and is against representational art to name but a few. I wonder if this will change any views?

Muslim terrorist leaders threatened to forcibly convert Britney Spears and Madonna to Islam and warned if they resist, their heads would be cut off for "spreading Satanic culture," according to a new book released today.

Somehow I doubt that the message will get through. Will anyone in Hollywood even begin to reconsider what seems to be their widespread support for the so-called Palestinian struggle?

"If I meet these whores I will have the honor – I repeat, I will have the honor – to be the first one to cut the heads off Madonna and Britney Spears if they will keep spreading their satanic culture against Islam," said Muhammad Abdel-Al, spokesman and senior leader of the Popular Resistance Committees terror organization.

But wait, there's more-

The Committees' Abdel-Al accused Madonna and Spears of "spreading this culture by the Americans as part of the war against Islam."

"If these two prostitutes [Madonna and Spears] keep doing what they are doing, we of course will punish them. First we will call them to join Islam. But if they keep what they are doing ... we can stone them or even we can kill them if they keep ... tempting men in order to put them far from Islam. ... A prostitute woman must be stoned or must be eighty times hit with a belt."

Abdel-El said even before Islam takes over America he would personally kill Madonna and Spears if he ran into them. He boasted he would "be the first one to cut the heads of Madonna and Britney Spears."

So, how long before we hear calls from those bastions of liberal, tolerant, peace-loving Hollywood to condemn this? I'm not holding my breath.

Wow, are you an uneducated buffoon. Name ONE major Hollywood celebrity that has been critical of Israel and Pro-Palestinian. ONE. And pull up the quotes stating that opinion.

Vanessa Redgrave did it decades ago (and she's BRITISH). Her career was immediately affected. You think "liberal Hollywood" includes criticism of Israel? LMAO.

Even politicians who seek the White House would never do that...BOTH PARTIES.

BTW, Pat Robertson called for the assassination of Hugo Chavez; it doesn't mean every American or Christian did.

Grow up. Seriously. You're entitled to your wrong opinion, but don't ever, EVER, think its fact...esp. in a case where you didn't even have the guts to name the specific Hollywood celebs that have stated they were Pro-Arab/Anti-Israel.

My point is that Hollywood (and I use it as a catch-all term for the movie/music business) seems to be completely unaware of the threat posed to their very way of life by Islamists- we hear a lot of caterwauling about the evils of so-called American Imperialism and the war in Iraq- but they never seem to think that the terrible slaughter in Iraq is being committed not by American soldiers there to try and provide security but by Islamic terrorists who blow up market-places. When they proclaim their anti-war credentials it's never aimed at the Islamist terrorists who murder innocent people but against Bush and the US Army.

As for pro-Palestinian sentiment (and don't forget that Redgrave continues to work and received two more Oscar nominations after her anti-Israel comment to name but a few- - how's that for a badly affected career?), how about Oliver Stone who paid a friendly visit not only to Yasser Arafat but also to the Hamas chief in Ramallah, Hassan Yussef?

And then there's this-
"Israel and its supporters are rightly concerned, because Stone has, in the past, voiced strong support for the Palestinians and their cause. Speaking to Variety, as quoted by, Stone noted that he “understands why [the] suicide bombers feel the way they do” and that “the Israelis have no business in the West Bank.”"

Or how about Hollywood nominating a film about suicide bombers for an Oscar?

Where are the Susan Sarandons, the Tim Robbins or the Sean Penns who will speak out about the murder, torture and oppression coming from the Islamic world? Why are they silent about very real human rights violations, about executions and stonings and intolerance and barbarity committed by Islamists? Why is it that the most vocal of Hollywood's pantheon have so much to say about Gitmo or Abu Ghraib and nothing to say about the head-chopping of hostages in Iraq or the school girls butchered in Afghanistan? Any campaigns for the release of Galid Shalit headed by Hollywood? Or how about the assault on free speech taking place over the sensitivities of the Islamic community as they try to foist their rules on what is permissible onto the rest of the world? Would Gwen Stefani have covered herself up for Christians or any other religious group apart from Islam to name but one example?

Celebrity peace activists and anti-war protesters don't seem to be doing too much protesting about the 9,000-odd people killed in Islamic terror attacks since 9/11.
