Ridiculous Anti-Muslim Game

Wow Europe… just wow, you take the creme and cherry on Islamophobia.

A right-wing Austrian political party’s published a flash game in which the countryside is overrun with minarets and mosques and players must stop their construction. Because nationalism and xenophobia’s so much more fun when it’s in the German language!

Moschee Baba (“Bye-Bye Mosque”) is a minute-long, shooting-gallery type game in which a stop sign is clicked on a minaret, mosque, or muezzin (the guys who sound the morning calls to prayer). It’s a political ad for the Freedom Party in the Styrian province; regional elections are coming at the end of the month.

No one’s killed and nothing’s destroyed in the game, but its tone is pretty hateful and paranoid and it’s pissed off political opponents but good. Social Democrats, the Green Party and the Muslim community have demanded the game’s removal and an investigation for “incitement.”

The game is, of course, a gross caricature of the reality of the situation in Austria. Only four mosques with a visible minaret exist in the country. None are in Styria, whose population is 1.2 percent Muslim.

After the game ends, it serves players with a push poll, asking if there should be a ban on minaret construction, wearing of burqas, niqabs or other Islamic garments, and if Muslims should sign some oath accepting Austrian law’s primacy over the Koran. Fun stuff.

Diam: The Wrapped up French Rapper

Diam, one of France’s most popular artists and rapper dons a hijab in her official music video for “Coeur de Bombe”, as she is newly converted.

here’s the english translation:
Small heart fell … on a bomb.
Small heart fell … and it hurts, it hurts.
Small heart fell … on a bomb.
Small heart fell … and it hurts, it hurts.
Small heart fell … on a bomb.
Small heart fell … and it hurts, it hurts.

It starts with looks,
promises, ‘Yes, but …’, romance of late, sms, emails, walks near the canal,
of waffle, silences.
We divide our scars
Here and there is evidence.
The lips, tongue, heart and slow, dreams, luck, hours of weightlessness.
Raving about the future of nights spent in isolation.
‘It does? ”
‘Not all of then wait darling nan not at once. ”
Cut off from the world, fully in the relationship, you’re my bomb, others were all idiots anyway, it’s not like you’re a pearl You know, you’re rare.
I think ‘I love you’ etc., etc. …

Small heart fell … on a bomb.
Small heart fell … and it hurts, it hurts.
Small heart fell … on a bomb.
Small heart fell … and it hurts, it hurts.
Small heart fell … on a bomb.
Small heart fell … and it hurts, it hurts.

A few months later I moved, it moved.
The clouds hide the storm
we know, it is viewed.
The bomb is quiet,
the woman a little less safe, reflex girl, I want everything faster and much more.
Then the madness resumes soon
but the life BOUSILLE.
And yes, he still must learn to manage routine.
Venus and Mars accuse because his love kills time, but when the time kills love Venus then apologizes.
Feminine passionate, biological clock, Male exceeded psycholoqiques problems.
‘Marriage why wait? Why not going to tell me. ”
‘Nan but wait you can understand dear, this is only eight months. ”
‘And you think about children? And if we become parents?
‘But wait you can understand my love, it is only 3 years.
You’re tainted, you’re too much speed, too sad for me.
My darling, ‘I do not love you’ etc., etc. …

Small heart fell … on a bomb.
Small heart fell … and it hurts, it hurts.
Small heart fell … on a bomb.
Small heart fell … and it hurts, it hurts.
Small heart fell … on a bomb.
Small heart fell … and it hurts, it hurts.

can you imagine the result, rage and tears.
‘Who guards the apartment’ and sharing of furniture? ”
He insults me, lynch me, pulling me even his hat.
is it really true behind the princes, there’s still a toad.
I let the angels answer
and give me strength, because for sure my pretty bomb
revert to type at my door.
I know I say what I dreamed of hearing, he wants children and get married immediately.
He tells me how much struggle and suffering, remembering the two of us in the moonlight searching the great bear.
Barely 3 months after the break, I see him crawling, camping in the rain at the foot of my apartment soaked.

To all the men who drool because the woman is rather boring, but sweet, endearing and possessive.
Do not expect her to go, hold it, marry it, before another bomb did say ‘I love you’ etc., etc. …

Small heart fell … on a bomb.
Small heart fell … and it hurts, it hurts.

I came across a bomb, a bomb such as one rarely sees.
The heart is ‘boom’ and then falls.
On a bomb.
I came across a bomb, a bomb that you speak of children.
The heart is ‘boom’ and then falls.
At a time bomb.

Turkish origin Mahinur Ozcelik swore in at Belgium’s parliament in Brussels with her headscarf without any crisis, Turkish media reported.
