Stockholm Syndrome

From the June 10th Daily Mail (U.K.):
Prince Charles yesterday urged the world to follow Islamic 'spiritual principles' in order to protect the environment.

In an hour-long speech, the heir to the throne argued that man's destruction of the world was contrary to the scriptures of all religions -- but particularly those of Islam.

He said the current 'division' between man and nature had been caused not just by industrialisation, but also by our attitude to the environment -- which goes against the grain of 'sacred traditions'.

Charles, who is a practising Christian and will become the head of the Church of England when he succeeds to the throne, spoke in depth about his own study of the Koran which, he said, tells its followers that there is 'no separation between man and nature' and says we must always live within our environment’s limits.

The prince was speaking to an audience of scholars at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies -- which attempts to encourage a better understanding of the culture and civilisation of the religion.

His speech, merging religion with his other favourite subject, the environment, marked the 25th anniversary of the organisation, of which he is patron.

He added: 'The inconvenient truth is that we share this planet with the rest of creation for a very good reason -- and that is, we cannot exist on our own without the intricately balanced web of life around us.

'Islam has always taught this and to ignore that lesson is to default on our contract with creation.'

You'll find a very good article here:


It has plenty of gems like this:

"Islamic countries like Turkey, Egypt and Syria gave women the vote as early as Europe did its women-and much earlier than in Switzerland! In those countries women have long enjoyed equal pay, and the opportunity to play a full working role in their societies."

Couple of Islamic countries missing there and lets take another look at Turkey in a couple years.

On second thought, I'd be okay with putting the entire Royal Family in burkas with niqābs. Both males and females.

I believe it's adequate to grasp that the blood line has gotten too thin, time to change the controlling House.

Does anybody know if Prince William and Prince Harry have been infected by the rabid insanity (inanity??) of their father?

Nonny Mouse,

I think the virus is airborne, so my guess is that they are infected.

Hey, he has to think of the future of the monarchy - he's probably anticipating the day when the state church is not Anglican, but Muslim.

Then he could have four wives, so he probably thinks that's a really good idea.
