Sen sijaan nk. islam-asiantuntijoista lännen yliopistoissa, medioissa, kirkoissa ja jopa valtion virastoissa on tullut islamin uskonpuolustajia. He ovat omalta osaltaan vastuussa sellaisen intellektuaalisen terrorismin ilmapiirin luomisesta, jossa kaikkinainen islamin kritiikki julistetaan fasismiksi, rasismiksi tai orientalismiksi. He ovat omalta osaltaan vastuussa yleisön tuudittamisesta siihen uskomukseen, että islamin uhka on vain myytti... Velvollisuutemme on puolustaa vapaamielisen demokratian arvoja."

    Just goes to show; hockey bores me. In fact, most every sport bores me..


    Except for curling, that I can watch on occasion

    Canada is the best team in the world and will win this tournament.

    Just as a side note, it sure is nice to see all these Nordic countries competing against each other. Hockey is definitely a Nordish sport.

    Black Hockey Player

    I am the Black Hockey Player
    A brother who stand out on white ice like a fly in a pail of milk,
    Compose my surface smooth as silk,
    Cool like the ice I glide
    Keep my anger inside, struggle to maintain my pride
    When the stands spit slurs
    That echo like gunshots, or slapshots off the boards with the hate in their words
    I'm like "Gimme the puck!" I don't give a ****
    I know off the ice they pull you over for driving while Black
    Sit your ass in the penalty box for that, doing overtime
    Contemplating sudden death, yelling "Don't shoot!" while they take aim
    To take away my last breath, tangled up in their net
    Easily identified, even behind the white wire of a goalie mask
    So I play the game mentally and physically braced for impact, see
    I am the Black Hockey Player

    I am the Black Hockey Player
    I played through the cheap shots and chipped teeth, stick slash and broke knee
    I'm a throwback to guys like Carnegie and Willie O'Ree
    Marson, McKegney, or like Fuhr with the Fury
    Even on blades blind you with the speed of an Anson Carter or Mike Greer
    With the resilience built over 400 years, you could club me like Brashear
    But still I perservere, cuz
    I am the Black Hockey Player

    I am the Black Hockey Player
    Don't player hate me, I'm a pioneer
    I'm like Henson at the Pole, out in the rink in the blistering cold
    Forty below, freezing off my ears, stand alone, the sole brown face
    In places where they never seen, only heard rumours about my race
    A curiosity, in small town arenas, from the Valley, south to Plattsburgh and Massina
    Afro puffing out the sides of my helmet
    Body check, getting extra attention from the ref
    Never picked for the top teams no matter how good I get
    I am as rare as a Black president, as brothers in the Winter Olympics
    I am absent from the Hall of Fame, or the All Star game
    Even Black history experts don't know my name
    All the same, I talk softly but carry a big stick
    Got visions of drinking Baby Duck, from the Stanley Cup
    With an all-Black starting line-up, style like the Globetrotters with a puck,
    while the P.A. sytem play some funk
    Like Kool and the Gang to celebrate my rising star
    Have rednecks turning the channel to watch NASCAR
    As their last sports bastion, now that the Williams sisters and Tiger
    Take over they country club games as champions
    And so will I, you know why? Cuz
    I am the Black Hockey Player

    I am the Black Hockey Player
    I am playing in a league where the idea of equality is bush league
    Where it's like the era of Jackie Robinson, for me, the Black Hockey Player
    They're saying I don't have a prayer
    Like the way the way the they declared a Negro can't survive
    In the cold up there
    Only serve as porters in their trains up there
    As domestics in their big homes up there
    But now we deep in the city
    Like the Capital, where winter hits with no pity
    Or in Montreal where I twice saw the whole place mash up in a riot
    Just cuz their team won it all, people all drunk and wild
    And from when I was a child, I had heroes like Dr. J, but also Cournoyer
    I loved my trading card of Willie Mays, but also my Jean-Claude Tremblay
    I got chills down my spine when I heard the call and response
    Of the crowd and organ play:
    Dooh-de-dooh DOOT-DOOH-DOOH
    CHARGE !!!
    Wanted to hear the crowd cheer for me, too
    But when I played as a youth all they did was call me Nigger and boo
    And urge their sons to beat me black and blue
    When all I wanted was to wear my team's colours, the bleu, blanc et rouge
    I am the Black Hockey Player

    I am the Black Hockey Player
    My pops love a game of cricket, talking fastbowler and wickets
    Taught me how to play the real football, and
    Took me back home to feel at home in Iere under palms
    Still I could thrive in ice storms, and snow squalls
    As comfortable cradling black rubber as a ball
    Pirhouette lovely like Pele on a breakaway
    Stickhandle like a master dribbler: Michael J or Marques Haynes
    Amazed the sceptics who never expected I could make the grade
    Bounced from team to team in the minors to try and ply my trade
    Tried out for the Rangers, but they treated me like a stranger
    Not promoted, stagnated, my career was in danger
    So I was traded, went from the frying pan to the fire
    Found myself riding the bench for the Flyers
    Released and picked up on waivers by the Canucks
    Then I found out the coach was a closet Ku Klux
    Pushed me to do him like Spree on Carlissimo
    Blackballed, blacklisted, my future looked abyssimal
    I think it's criminal, but I have defined a new mission
    To tell the world my story, communicate my vision
    To the next generation, inspire them to keep going, like Jesse Owens
    Scorned, but reborn in a million youth marching to carry on
    So that one day, they can say with less rage and pain than I when I say
    I am the Black Hockey Player
