Chinese Korans

Although China has become one of the great exporting powerhouses and generally imports made in China are of decent quality, the Chinese have had occasional trouble with defective or tainted products. Nothing made in China could cause as much controversy as defective Korans, as this article from Jihad Watch relates.

Allan commands you to spray the unbelievers: Iran furious at cheap Chinese-made Qur’ans said to be riddled with typos

On second thought, maybe that’s where all this “misunderstanding” of Islam is coming from! Now, Islamic interest groups can blame bad Chinese reprints. “Iran says cheap “Made in China” Qurans full of typos,” by Patrick Winn for Global Post, August 31:

Iran’s Organization of the Holy Quran is scolding Iranian publishers who’ve outsourced production of the holy book to Chinese printers.

There is officially a cheap Chinese knockoff of everything.

Apparently, their copies of the Quran are riddled with typos, according to the Tehran Times.

“These tableaus are made quite cheaply in China but are sold for much more than they are really worth to make that much more profit,” said an official with the organization who monitors and evaluates Qurans available in Iran.

The official even urged importers to halt future Quran shipments from China, the Times reported….

They should look on the bright side. I doubt if the Chinese Korans tell people “Thou shalt commit adultery” like the Wicked Bible does.
Who is “Allan” anyway?

Obama Kids

Here is a blast from the past

I don’t much care for the part at the end where the children singing praises for Obama are compared to German schoolchildren praising Hitler. Whatever his faults, Obama is not Hitler. Still, there is something creepy and unsettling about children singing the praises of politicians. I thought there was something creepy and unsettling about the whole personality cult that some of Obama’s more fervent supporters were promoting. I don’t know how much Obama himself supported this kind of over-enthusiasm or whether he ever tried to tone it down. I would hope so but maybe he believed the hype himself. This video suggests he did.

I have to wonder if the parents of these children are still so enamored of Obama, or whether the past two years have disenchanted them. I wonder if they are embarrassed by this video. I hope so. If you are looking for a messiah, the last place to look would be in politics.
