End of the year awards
Little Green Footballs is having its own Idiotarian of the Year awards this year - and nominations are open. In the spirit of the holiday season, Culture for All will hold its informal awards - but I would not want to copy LGF, so these awards are for most breathtaking acts of dhimmitude and anti-dhimmitude. The awards here are not for people, but rather for events and/or actions. I will get this started. My nomination for the most breathtaking act of dhimmitude of 2006 is for the way the West has cowardly given into the Danish cartoon protests after the Cartoon Jihad, refusing to publish the images of the cartoons. Second nomination: The Iraq Study Group's recent recommendations to start talks with Iran/Syria, and sell Israel down the river. Third nomination: Ehud Olmert and his acts of suicidal incompetence (here and here). My nomination for the most breathtaking act of anti-dhimmitude of 2006 is for the publishers of the Danish cartoons to in fact publish the Danish cartoons. Second nomination: Wafa Sultan's amazing speech on Al Jazeera, whereby she called the Islamists attacking civilization itself. Third nomination: The Lebanese of the March 14 coalition, who rallied to support democracy. (here and here) STAY STRONG!
