Bring your pretty face to my ax!
Lord of the Rings actor John Rhys-Davies (Gimli) gets the fatwa treatment for speaking his mind regarding Islamic culture versus that of the West.
Outraged Islamic leaders in Wales demanded an immediate apology from Lord Of The Rings actor John Rhys-Davies, who claimed an increase in Europe's Muslim population was a "demographic catastrophe" threatening "Western civilisation". [SNIP]
[Rhys-Davies:] "Many do not understand how precarious Western civilisation is and what a joy it is.
"From it, we get real democracy. From it, we get the sort of intellectual tolerance that allows me to propound something that may be completely alien to you. [SNIP]
[Rhys-Davies:] "I don't think that Western society is opposed to Islamic society at all. I think a very important part of Islamic society is opposed to Western society.
"It is time that ordinary Muslims stood up to be counted.
"Most societies can benefit from a good stirring of genes, but most cultures are tolerant of each other. I do not see Buddhists throwing bombs into Christian churches, I do not see Christians blowing up Hindu temples, I do not see those sorts of challenges.
"When we are prepared to overlook certain things because we don't want to rock the boat, this is wrong. The greatest act of racism is to expect that other people will not behave according to your values and standards.
"Yes, I am for dead, (traditional) white male culture. It's pretty damn good, pretty damn marvellous, pretty wonderful. That's not to exclude other cultures, but it's not to diminish mine."Draw your own conclusions.
