    In other statue news:

    Java: Muslim violence against statues of other religions

    A radical Muslim group, the Islamic Defender Front (FPI), launches an appeal for the destruction of “un-Islamic” statues, like Chinese dragons, representations of the Buddha or Christian icons if they are in public places rather than in places of worship.

    Jakarta (AsiaNews) – The Islamic Defender Front (FPI) launched an appeal on its website on 29 September 2011 with an order to destroy all “un-Islamic” statues in the country, above all those in public places. FPI members were asked to take a stance against the making of statues that Islam does not approve. The request to reject un-Islamic statues was extended to other Indonesian Muslim groups.

    The appeal follows a controversy in Purwakarta (West Java) where hundreds of hard-line Muslims destroyed puppet statues representing mythological figures used in traditional theatre in the city’s downtown.

    Purwakarta mayor had offered the puppets used in traditional theatre to represent a more “native” Indonesian identity. However, for Muslim fundamentalists, the puppet statues were “religiously wrong”. On 18 September, hundreds of Muslims destroyed a number of them (see Mathias Hariyadi, “Islamic fundamentalists in Java target puppet statues,” in AsiaNews, 20 September 2011).

    The FPI also denounced the existence of several “profane” statues, like a big dragon in Singkawang, in West Borneo Province, and a statue of Buddha in Tanjung Balai, North Sumatra, which are still standing despite the hostility of Muslim radicals.

    “The statue of the big dragon in Singkawang is a form of evil provocation performed by locals of Chinese descent,” the FPI said in its statement.

    Singkawang is about 100 km north of Pontianak, the capital of West Borneo, and has a long-established Chinese community. Despite the presence of indigenous Christian Dayaks and Melayu Muslims, the Chinese are in fact a majority in the city.

    This year, Muslims destroyed three statues of Our Lady in Bekasi, West Jav. Still, the FPI said that it would not destroy Catholic statues of Jesus or the Virgin as long as they are kept inside churches. The same goes for Buddhist statues in temples. However, “if they are placed elsewhere, especially in public places, they are to be considered an evil provocation and the state should take action,” its statement read.

    There are other myths besides the Greek myths. But if you want to cite the Greek myths, he could be Proteus, the Old (yet hair-dyed) Man of the Sea, who could assume any shape.

    He could be the Sirens, who lured sailors voters to their doom with their irresistible song “electable….electable…”

    He could be Procrustes, the ogre whose bed fit any guest, because he would lop off anything which protruded over the edge or rack the guest out to fit the bed—much as Romney does to his political positions.

    He could be the Shirt of Nessus, the shirt soaked in the blood of the evil Centaur Nessus who tried to carry off Heracles’ wife and, when Heracles killed him with a poisoned arrow, Nessus told her to soak a shirt in his (poisoned) blood, and that she should give this shirt to Heracles when she feared he was losing his love. The shirt, of course, poisoned Herakles and stuck to his skin, ultimately killing him—sort of the way the MSM hopes to kill the GOP by wrapping it in Romney’s Mormon underwear.

    The video went sort of viral and is now over 100K views and nearing 4 thousand comments and counting. Well now since he’s famous on youtube now, he actually made this response to it and sent it to me saying: “Perhaps I’m a little more difficult to dismiss in this one…

    It’s not just their air force. The entire Saudi military is like that. They like to fly jets, and ride around in tanks, but they have no idea how to maintain any of it.

    If they think the western contractors are going to follow them into combat and keep their stuff running for them, they’re delusional.

    I know someone who was one of those contractors. He made his money (a lot) and got the hell outta there. When his contract was close to expire he said he could feel the pressure and distrust from the Sauds.
