Brother’s gotta sign a petition before they give him a fruit!

StrangelyPsychedelique has uploaded tons of pictures from [2] yesterday’s march.

It was all good natured, I was told by brothers who went.

Quite a few [3] X-files [4] fans turned up too, as SP shows.

Funny [5] captions too.

One of the placards depicting the twin towers burning has a message written.

“5 years on 2 wars but still no truth”

Is this from one of those Muslim moderates that we hear so much about.

#2 Comment By Riz On 12th February, 2006 @ 4:16 pm

this is outrageous, a fruit-for-signatures scandal !

#3 Comment By Jim On 12th February, 2006 @ 4:20 pm

And these are the ‘moderates’

#4 Comment By Al-Hack On 12th February, 2006 @ 4:25 pm

Jim, I don’t see anyone asking for a decapitation. Do you? Is a moderate defined as someone willing to lick GW Bush’s balls?

#5 Comment By Jay Singh On 12th February, 2006 @ 4:37 pm

And these are the ‘moderates’

Yeah! They were going to kill people with those oranges and bananas!

#6 Comment By Clive On 12th February, 2006 @ 5:01 pm

Is this woman, holding up a picture of Ayatollah Khomeini a moderate as well?

What do you think Clive?

#8 Comment By NorahJones On 12th February, 2006 @ 5:10 pm

Can someone please tell me what they will accept
as ‘moderate’?

It seems it doesn’t matter who the rally stands for, the
fact that they have the nerve to be insulted shows they’re
just like all the rest of the muslims on the telly.

Jay, I remember reading you saying there should be a
no muslim day… Imagine. A whole day without those
troublemaking islamists…

Clive, well done for finding that ONE woman to make an
example of. I agree buddy, they’re all the same.

Al-Hack, couldn’t have put it better myself.

#9 Comment By Asma’ bint Marwan On 12th February, 2006 @ 5:17 pm

One of these moderates is holding up a sign which says “Muhammad mercy to mankind”

I wonder if my psudenom or the Banu Quraiza would have agreed. You can’t say that Muslims lack a sense of humor.

#10 Comment By Old Pickler On 12th February, 2006 @ 5:41 pm

Asma, good point, but I think you mean “namesake”, not “pseudonym”.

Asma’ bint Marwan, for those who don’t know, was a poetess who wrote some satirical verses about Mohammed. Mohammed, in his infinite mercy, had her brutally murdered in front of her children.

#11 Comment By Kulvinder On 12th February, 2006 @ 5:55 pm

I can’t see any problem with that protest.

#12 Comment By Al-Hack On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:06 pm

Going by that Clive anyone holding a picture of Ariel Sharon would also be a fanatic then? Who’s killed more, that is the question ain’t it?

#13 Comment By Geezer On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:14 pm

Is this from one of those Muslim moderates that we hear so much about. [Asma’ bint Marwan ]

The person holding the placard was NON MUSLIM bright spark…

#14 Comment By Jay Singh On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:16 pm

How can you tell she is non Muslim?

#15 Comment By jamal On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:22 pm

Jim,stop with this “moderates” rubbish. We are muslims.

But yeah, it was good to see this good natured protest without the transgression of bounds we saw last time.

Nice pics too.

#16 Comment By Geezer On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:23 pm

How can you tell she is non Muslim? [jay singh]

Because I talked to her at the rally.

#17 Comment By Jay Singh On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:28 pm

Because I talked to her at the rally.

So what was she? And what was she doing at the rally? And why was she holding a picture of Ayatollah Khomeini?

#18 Comment By StrangelyPsychedelique On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:31 pm

>>And why was she holding a picture of Ayatollah Khomeini?

Poster boy? the Olde James Dean?

#19 Comment By jamal On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:36 pm

SP, good work there. I just checked through all the pics. Very nice.

#20 Comment By Geezer On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:36 pm

So what was she? And what was she doing at the rally?[jay singh]

She is an anti war campaigner and the person holding the Khomeni picture is someone else.

#21 Comment By Bikhair On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:39 pm

Old Pickler,

You know I have never heard that story before. I hate to go off topic and if Sunny will afford us some space, I would like you to inform me of the fate of Asma’ bint Marwan.

In regards to Banu Quraiza, I thought we had this talk over on Indigo Jo blogs. Do even remember anything that I said in regards to those people?

#22 Comment By Don On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:40 pm

‘the person holding the Khomeni picture is someone else. ‘

What, someone else who has got his arm in her sleeve?

#23 Comment By StrangelyPsychedelique On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:41 pm

>>SP, good work there. I just checked through all the pics. Very nice.

Cheers Jamal! Glad you liked em. Its only a part of the protest though! I regret not being able to get any of the speakers but Darkstar does have some on his thread:

LoL

She is holding the picture herself dude.

#25 Comment By jamal On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:51 pm

Nice.

I regret not going.

Based on last time, I didnt want to risk getting my face in the newspaper if things got out of hand.

#26 Comment By Geezer On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:51 pm

What, someone else who has got his arm in her sleeve?[don]

You what? The twin towers picture is being held up by a white woman and the Khomeni picture is being held up by a Persian looking woman with a scarf on her head.

#27 Comment By Jay Singh On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:54 pm

You what? The twin towers picture is being held up by a white woman and the Khomeni picture is being held up by a Persian looking woman with a scarf on her head.

Dude, are you on hallucinogens?

#28 Comment By Geezer On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:56 pm

No are you? So let me get this right the woman holding the 9/11 pictures is the SAME person who is holding the picture of the Ayatollah?

#29 Comment By Sunny On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:58 pm

You’re talking about two diff pics and people for gods sake! Geezer is referring to the 9/11 woman and Jay you’re talking about the woman who is holding up the portrait. Geezer had a chat only with the former.

Lol at jamal’s pic in the papers. I thought it was you with the suicide suit? ;)

#30 Comment By DarkStar On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:58 pm

I talked to the woman holding the 9/11 placard - and yes she is white/English….the lady who is holding the ayatollah photo is clearly or persian origin…

How on earth are you guys think its the same person is beyond me…..

#31 Comment By Geezer On 12th February, 2006 @ 6:59 pm

Picture of woman holding up the Ayatollah picture.

So this is the same person is it? Wtf….

#32 Comment By Geezer On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:00 pm

Person holding up the Ayatollah picture

#33 Comment By Jay Singh On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:01 pm

Calm down geezer, I don’t even know what 9/11 placard you’re talking about. I thought you were talking about the Ayatollah woman.

#34 Comment By Geezer On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:04 pm

No dude I was talking about the 9/11 woman that the other guy was commenting on.

The Ayatollah woman is obviously Muslim but I didn’t get time to talk to her.

.

#35 Comment By Jay Singh On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:05 pm

Cross wires dude my apologies.

#36 Comment By David T On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:05 pm

The woman holding the Ayatollah picture is Old Pickler?

What an extraordinary thing to be doing.

Explain yourself, Pickler! Why were you carrying that picture?

#37 Comment By jamal On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:08 pm

[10] lol@sunny.

more then anything, I value my salary!

#38 Comment By Geezer On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:09 pm

It’s cool Jay no worries.

#39 Comment By Jay Singh On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:11 pm

The Ayatollah woman looks more Pakistani than Persian to me - the nose stud looks desi and the dupatta looks like shalwaar kameez material.

#40 Comment By Sunny On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:15 pm

I think there’s a story in these pics about the looming “fruits for petition signatures” scandal. Well done for highlighting it Riz!

#41 Comment By StrangelyPsychedelique On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:19 pm

>>think there’s a story in these pics about the looming “fruits for petition signatures” scandal. Well done for highlighting it Riz!

WHOOOP before we go there one might have to verify the fruit were tokens in return for signatures…which I doubt. Admittedly I paid little attention to the stand - too much going on around it.

Will do my best to check up on that…

#42 Comment By Don On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:21 pm

The picture in question is;

[11] http://www.flickr.com/photos/kesara/98665690/in/set-72057594063098059/

It always was. No-one raised the 9/11 pic.

#43 Comment By Don On 12th February, 2006 @ 7:22 pm

Or have we sorted that? Not important.

#44 Comment By Bijna On 12th February, 2006 @ 8:11 pm

> Jim,stop with this “moderates” rubbish. We are muslims

A lot of right people agree with you :D

#45 Comment By Clive On 13th February, 2006 @ 7:42 am

Clive, well done for finding that ONE woman to make an
example of. I agree buddy, they’re all the same.

I didn’t say that, you did. I was just interested that on a march of moderates (organised by some rather immoderate people, I’m led to believe), there was this woman holding up a picture of Khomeini, symbol of repressive Iranian theocracy.

I’m sure there were plenty of nice cuddly Muslims there too. The real nutjobs (9/11 woman, man waving Union Jack) seem to be non-Muslims

#46 Comment By Sol On 13th February, 2006 @ 1:26 pm

Don: “No-one raised the 9/11 pic.”

Read the FIRST MESSAGE, dude.

Geez…

Absolutely, you would never find a Muslim going to such gutter lows.
