Wonkette: Dead Breitbart Freaks Out Over ‘Muslim Prayer Rug’ Found Near Border, Sheeple See Only A ‘Shirt’


Dead Breitbart Freaks Out Over ‘Muslim Prayer Rug’ Found Near Border, Sheeple See Only A ‘Shirt’

By Doctor Zoom

Dead Breitbart’s Little Sisters of Perpetual Fear ran this breathless headline the other day, indisputable proof that al Qaeda terrorists are sneaking through our porous borders™, perhaps disguised as seven-year-old Guatemalan children: Muslim Prayer Rug Found on Arizona Border by Independent American Security Contractors Be afraid! Be very afraid! Because not only are the terrorists sneaking through our porous borders™, they’re also either so clumsy or so brazenly certain that they won’t be caught that they’re casually tossing their discarder prayer rugs in the arroyos of the Sonoran desert in Arizona.

Thrill to their story of plucky “independent contractors” who poked around in the washes near the border and found the chilling evidence:

A member of the security team spoke with Breitbart News on Monday night saying they were on patrol right along the border came down into a wash and the area were working in just south of Sierra Vista in Coronado national forest
“That area is prime crossing from Yucca Springs over to Copper Canyon. And the reason that they use that area is anything from plain old Mexicans and South Americans to cartels and anybody else is because border patrol has a high point lookout area where in the Coronado national forest, tourists can come on up,” He said […]

The group patrolled along the border that was a patchwork of decades old rickety fencing made from train tracks and cattle enclosures. Eventually, they were 50 yards by the border and saw a break in the wash.

“That’s when I saw this thing laying around. And I was like, ‘What the hell is that?’ We walked over there and I didn’t really want to pull at it not knowing what was on it. I poked a bit at it with a stick and noticed some of the Arabic writing and was just like, ‘Oh boy.’ I snapped a couple of photos and then went on our patrol.”

Arabic writing! That settles it, although for some reason Breitbart didn’t include a photo of that, probably to prevent secret coded messages being seen by the wrong people. We appreciate their thoughtful concern for national security.

Despite this clear proof that Barack Obama is letting terrorists casually slip into our country, Gawker’s America-hating socialist jihadi sympathizer Adam Weinstein is dangerously skeptical, casting aspersions on the Breitbart story of a clear and present danger. He disparages the “independendent” American security contractors,” mocking Breitbart’s description of the “security team” and suggesting that they may in fact be mere self-proclaimed militiamen or even loonies with AR-15s and Rambo fantasies. Which is to say that he’s not sure he agrees with Breitbart a hundred percent on their police work, there.

Worse, he seems to think that the thin cotton or poly-cotton cloth has certain characteristics that are more typical of a “shirt” (in Spanish, “Camisa,” or in Arabic, “قميص”):
you can't explain it!

Weinstein presents a fanciful “photo analysis,” the sort of laughably speculative guesses that you see in tabloid stories about such improbable phenomena as “UFOs” “Elvis sightings,” or “Diagrams of the female reproductive system.” Here’s what he thinks he sees:

1. Here we see a waist hemline on the Muslim prayer rug.

2. This would be a sleeve opening on the Muslim prayer rug, just above the diamond-hatch red-and-white pattern so popular among lower-tier football clubs and militant Muslim prayer-rug salesmen.

3. Islamic scholars and Arsenal fans will immediately recognize “die marke mit den 3 streifen” here on the Muslim prayer rug.

And since one of Arsenal F.C.’s top sponsors is Emirates Airlines, that might just explain the mysterious “Arabic writing”, which is right there in the logo:

Arsenal emirates

Still, it’s a hell of a catch by brave patriots, and possible evidence that America is under siege by a force even more threatening than al Qaeda: Footy hooligans.

    I’m certain that this rug was purchased in Mexico and not from the middle east. Does this mean that Mexico is becoming Islamic?

    Caliphate of America. It’s already happening. Are you blind to what Iran and ISIS is doing? Do you know what ISIS recently proclaimed, that America’s next. They have oil, U.S. military assets, 80 lb of uranium (dirty bombs). Our borders are wide open so don’t think terrorists aren’t mixing in with the illegals sneaking into the country. There here. Just like before 911, people like you scoffed at the thought that terrorists would ever pose a significant threat to the distant U.S. How could they? We’re too much advanced and our government is invincible. And yet they were taking flying lessons right here in fortress America.

    There is a good website that provides excellent explanations of the verses but the site itself is a bit… odd. I can’t explain, you have to see for yourself. Anyways, here it is:

    I posted my argument to him on twitter. Here is my argument in full. Note the way they are posted since I had the 140 character limit. I will update if he responds.

    Each Quranic verse has not only a specific meaning but also
    a more general import.

    The Quran does in fact tapply to all times but the context
    of the specific instance informs and influnces the meaning of the takeaway.

    Whenever moderen day troubles arise. Scholars look back to
    similar instances of occurance within the Quran and attempt to use those
    instances to formulate a response.

    For example if a quranic verse is reavealed as a defensive
    response to a treaty being breached then the same general response can be
    replicated in the future.

    So context DOES matter in fact it’s crucial to the meaning oft he verse.

    Bin Laden said in response to President Bush’s speech“ Any
    nation that does not attack us will not be attacked.“ I can link you the
    transcript if you’d like to read his response in full.

    So even HIM the
    paragon of extremisim dosen’t hold the view that you should just wage perpetual
    war against all non-muslims.

    You mentioned that there are 100 upwards verses that
    supposedly all call for unprovoked violence.

    My response is that I don’t know all of those verses. So we
    would have to go through your list verse by verse to see if any oft hem are
    unprovoked in nature.

    One last point. Arguing over what a verse means does not
    mean Im justifying it’s actions: two sepreate issues.

  • Tarik

    Oh and one more thing. If Kyle asks for proof on why that’s true is there anywhere I can go to show him definitely that’s how you read the Quran? I know that’s how scholars do it and so I can just show him the opinions of a bunch of scholars and how they use that as evidence but It would be kind of hard to do and he might not be around for that long.

  • Tarik

    Oh yeah i do. I’m on a laptop without them right now but I can do that when i get home in a little more than a week. Yeah I have no problem doing that. In my opinon it’s one of the most valuable things we can do. People go around looking for information on Islam and many of them, in the words of Danios “Either knowingly or unknowingly get their information from extremely anti-Muslim sources”

  • Solid Snake

    “specific commands to fight back just refer to all non-Muslims everywhere and that their context does not matter.”

    What?……Just ask him this, is he willing to use that type of logic on everything else (That context doesn’t matter)? (Speeches and books by prominent atheists, Political treatise, Political commentaries, international treaties, secular documents etc etc etc)

    If he agrees that that logic can be applied universally then his argument becomes useless as stripping the context of almost anything, save for a few ‘How to’ instruction manuals for putting together LEGO pieces, will twist its meaning into anything other than the intended meaning.

    If he says it only applies to the Quran then he seems to be a low level bigot, low level referring to the fact that he seems to be lacking in knowledge because he seems to have missed the verses telling Muslims to deal with nonbelievers justly.

    There seems to be many holes in his argument (that is if you reproduced the summary of his argument accurately).

    As for the request, I have a ton of time on my hands so I honestly don’t mind doing a massive portion of it or doing a lot if it means so. it would probably be the single most useful piece on Loonwatch because that’s whats most often brought up in the internet.
