Hold onto your clocks boys - Muslim bigwigs want to Islamify the world's timepieces!!

Sometimes even I wonder at the sheer number of topics I've posted which are related to Islam. But then I read yet another news story of some new potty plan and the wonder ceases.



Look at it: Giant Mecca clock seeks to call time on Greenwich - Telegraph

Rest: royal mecca clock tower - Google Search



The Saudi Binladen Group hopes that its new massive timepiece will be more than a pretty face, rather the new standard of clock timing for the world's Muslims.

For such a sick and perverted fantasy to become reality will mean that the global GMT standard will need to be sidelined, just to satisfy a few impertinent egos. And even to try would represent yet another attempted assault on established tradition by Religion of Peace-fired Koran-bashers.


Well I've got news for the salted Islamo-nuts out there at their creed's Ground Zero - Even if the world's Muslims organise their clocks around Arabia Standard Time, those pieces would still have to be counted three hours ahead of GMT to be calibrated!


Back to the drawing-board my bearded nightgown-wearing supremacist chums!









BELOW: They just can't help themselves. And don't they ever think of the peaceful Muslims who just want to live their lives without the compulsion to ram their megalomaniacal faith in the world's face every two minutes?



Shady, in more ways than one.

Your outrage is a little tardy. This report is a week old. Poor timekeeping is the ultimate irony on your late offering.

Another.. so freaking what thread.

The "evil muslims" can do whatever they want, but the financial markets and pretty much everything else, goes by GMT...You or the "evil muslims" aint gonna change that any time soon.

I did notice.


And I wouldn't say it was a 'so freaking what' thread because it was replied and reacted to, wasn't it! Plus, this is Mecca, the bullseye on the Islamic map. The project would have been government sponsored, with the Saudi-funded extremist Islamic schools infecting our isles to spread the new 'values' I have no doubt.

Mecca is to Islam was Moscow was to Communism! Headquarters!


Mecca being where it is means that the government there has a massive disproportionate influence on the Islamic world (and that includes all the little enclaves here) - though ironically that's by trying to impose their more orthodox outlook onto other Muslims more pragmatic.

The message here is that there must be no place in the free world where the arm of Islam does not touch.


And I did say that the Arab time needs to be calibrated in line with GMT. But with supremacists, logic can take a back seat - and I have no doubt dhimmi government departments or councils here would be more than happy to fall into line to keep a minority of a minority appeased again.

Can't they decide what standart time they use? At one time there was also the meridian of Paris, and even a Brussels standart time! It's the same for calendars! Muslims are in 1400 and according to the Jewish calendar we're in 3500 or something like that! Why should we care? That doesn't hurt anyone!

For me it's not just about a big clock telling Arabs the time in their part of the world. That would be harmless enough, as would be Jews using their own orthodox calendar.

As the media reports say, the point of this big Mecca clock is to DISPLACE the standard of GMT for the world's Muslims. I don't see it happening but the fact that Islam HQ wants to even try to force established global practice round to their way again rings the alarm bells for me.

It was the same when Albert Speer, when telling his leader that his new Berlin stadium would be far too big for the Olympic measurements, was told that 'in future the standards will be set by us'.

Still, it puts the swimming pool fiasco into the shade!

It's unwelcome and it's a partial re-run of the sinister apparachiks of the EU wanting us to set our clocks to a standard THEY decided!
