As the Ayatollah Khomeini said, “There is no humor in Islam,” and that may make it difficult at times to distingish parody from reality.
Jihad Watch reader Wayne has pointed out to me that this parody from a site called Deadbrain has ended up as the lead story right now at the website of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee of the United Kingdom (MPACUK).
Hey, mistakes will be made. After all, the piece is entitled “Blair denies Britain is a police state,” and that’s just what at least one Muslim leader is claiming. But you’d think that passages such as “The most worrying thing about all of this is not my civil liberties, but the fact that the satellite location photographs they presented show that I have a slight bald spot that I didn’t know about” or “Ramsbottom was fined Â£15, advised to lower his cholesterol, buy a decent map, and not to park illegally again” would have made somebody at MPACUK suspect that all was not quite on the level here.
Speaking of There Is No Humor In Islam, Steve Martin is asking for a death fatwa (thanks to Looney Tunes for the heads-up).
