Sex Without Love

How do they do it, the ones who make love
without love? Beautiful as dancers,
gliding over each other like ice-skaters
over the ice, fingers hooked
inside each other’s bodies, faces
red as steak, wine, wet as the
children at birth whose mothers are going to
give them away. How do they come to the
come to the come to the God come to the
still waters, and not love
the one who came there with them, light
rising slowly as steam off their joined
skin? These are the true religious,
the purists, the pros, the ones who will not
accept a false Messiah, love the
priest instead of the God. They do not
mistake the lover for their own pleasure,
they are like great runners: they know they are alone
with the road surface, the cold, the wind,
the fit of their shoes, their over-all cardio-
vascular health–just factors, like the partner
in the bed, and not the truth, which is the
single body alone in the universe
against its own best time.

„Nothing is important in life….for this reason I am a novelist. .. The novel is the one bright book of life. Books are not life. They are only tremulations on the ether. But the novel as a tremulation can make the whole man tremble. Which is more than poetry, philosophy, science or any other book tremulation can do.”
said D.H.Lawrence

Politicăsuţa poştală

Mi s-a pus în poştă(în Amsterdam, cartierul arab) prin decembrie un pamflet semnat de gruparea Hizb ut-Tahrir (Party of Liberation), şi de pe Wikipedia in olandeza mi s-au confirmat urmatoarele:
The younger members of Hizb ut Tahrir in the Netherlands spread in December 2007 in different cities a pamphlet to all Mulims that calls up the islam to defend against ‘a film about the Noble Koran’. Although not named by name it is clear that the pamphlet has been directed against PVV-leader Geert Wilders, who is working on a film about the Koran.

Despre gruparea asta am mai aflat alte informatii nelinistitoare:

„In October 2002, a court in Denmark handed down a 60-day suspended sentence to Fadi Abdelatif, Hizb ut-Tahrir’s spokesman in Denmark, after he was found guilty of distributing racist propaganda. The title of a leaflet he distributed was a quote from Muhammad: ‘And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out.’ The hadith refers to the situation at the time the Antichrist (dajjal) has descended and the Muslims stand united fighting the Jews, who will take the Antichrist to be their God and Saviour. With the help of Isa, even the stones and rocks will call out and say, ‘There is a Jew standing behind me, come and kill this Jew'[55] The leaflet continues: ‘The Jews are a people of slander … a treacherous people … they fabricate lies and twist words from their right context.’

In January 2003, Hizb ut-Tahrir was barred in Germany from public activity on charges of spreading antisemitic propaganda and of being ‘hate preachers.’ Membership in the party is still permitted. German Interior Minister Otto Schily ruled that the group was ‘spreading hate and violence,’ and had called for the killing of Jews.[56]”

Geert Wilders (politician si autor al filmului mentionat mai sus) nu imi inspira nici el mai multa incredere intr-un viitor linistit, si nici admiratie pt capacitatile sale intelectuale, facand declaratii de genul:
„With all the tolerance we are having, unfortunately we are also tolerant to the intolerant, we should learn to start being intolerant to the people who are intolerant to us. This would be the best lesson for the Dutch Government.”
intr-un Interviu pe FoxNews.

In acelasi interviu sustine cu convingere si ideea ca Islamul ar fi o cultura retardata in comparatie cu cea europeana, pt ca instiga la crima. Ce pacat ca nu a fost tipul asta in zona pe vremea cruciadelor, ca sa restabileasca pacea prin intoleranta fata de Biblie, sau asa ceva…

Prin ideea ca Islamul instiga la crima, Wilders se refera probabil la apostazie. Articolul sapte din constitutia gruparii Hizb_ut-Tahrir prevede pedeapsa capitala pentru apostazie.(W.)
„Apostasy in Islam (Arabic: ارتداد, irtidād or ridda) is commonly defined as the rejection of Islam in word or deed by a person who has been a Muslim.The five major Madh’hab (schools of Islamic jurisprudence) agree that a sane adult male apostate must be executed.[1]” Mai multe despre apostazie in Islam aici.

Dupa faza cu caricaturile din Danemarca, si asasinarea regizorului Theo van Gogh, one can only wonder what could come next…
