GRIPE

Just pilgrim and I, having arrived late (7:30), were at the GRIPE. I gave out a few of the cards that I had printed.

I missed an event about islam that was sponsored by Samford University (which is a Baptist school. I called the organizer earlier this week only after all 135 seats were already full. I expect there to be some mention of the event in The Alabama Baptist. I'm imagine that the event was no whitewash of islam, but I've been surprised before by people that readily accept a plausible deniability offered by islam apologists. We should no longer wonder how Nazi's were able to kill so many jews without arousing the suspicions of Germans of any semblance of conscience, they probably just blamed everything on a tiny minority of "radical" Nazi's nothing like the many peace loving National Socialists.

I'm coming close to thinking outright that what we have today is the same old version of anti-Semitism now dressed up in p.c. and including hatred of America. I call it anti-semericanism. Hate Jews, hate Americans, it's the same Nazi crap all over again. It's the same people in newer bodies but the mind is the same.

Have I ever mentioned that I hate those people? Look, for example, at today's BBC to find a rewview of the movie everyone's talking about. No, Not United 93:

At the Tribeca Film Festival in New York there has been an enthusiastic reception for what is said to be the most expensive Egyptian film ever made.

The Yacoubian Building (Omaret Yacoubian) is a film version of Alaa Al Aswany's 2002 novel of the same name which depicts the interlinked lives of the residents of a Cairo apartment block.

Huh?!

There's some mention of United 93 at the bottom of the article:

The Tribeca Festival opened this week with United 93 - about one of the planes hijacked on 9/11. That opens commercially in the US on Friday.

Some research suggests Americans are not yet ready to go to cinemas in large numbers to confront such a topic... although United 93's generally good reviews may help.

Did I mention that I hate these people?
