Mohammed Hassan Is this guy for real?

This blog has been lying still for quite a while now, since the media coverage of "the Mohammed crisis" as this series of events has been dubbed in Denmark.

As some of you may have seen, a video was released today by a supposed member of the Al-Quida, Mohammed Hassan, calling for violent action towards Norway, Denmark and France.

Google news coverage

What I wonder is: Is this guy for real?
I believe that most people are aware that the publication of the drawings brought unforeseen consequences - both with regards to the perception and emotional response in Islamic communities as well as political and economic implications.
However, it seems that the conflict has cooled down (at least to the extent it is covered in western media) over the last couple of months. Then, along comes this guy with a 35 minute video full of hateful and aggravating messages.

One of the positive results of the discussion started by the Mohammed caricatures (in my opinion, at least) is an increased awareness of the differences within Islamic communities and several Muslims have seen this as an opportunity to verbalise their opinions and speak for them selves.

While this may not have lead to agreement regarding whether it was reasonable to publish the caricatures, it has definitely helped bringing forward a higher awareness of differences in opinion and justifiable responses in the conflict.

Overall I believe that we are the better for this episode, since we now have a whole new range of people that have established a communication channel to make themselves heard in relation to cultural and political issues relating to religion.

Who is this Mohammed Hassan talking to?
And are they listening?
Obviously there might still be certain population groups and communities where these kind of messages might find fertile ground, but it is my personal opinion that this kind of publication should no longer be seen as a "typical" communication from Islamic communities in the world, yet it is clearly easier to get global coverage when the message centres on violence.

Let us try to hear some of the responses from some you that do not agree that this is the image Islam should have in the media!

Your dog has to know in his heart that you are the Alpha Dog, the Head Honcho, the Big Dog, the Top Dog ? call it whatever you want, but your dog needs to know you're in chargeNow what? He needs a name!Over the course of its life, you will use your dog's name more than 35,000 timesNow you're ready to print While artistic merits are only a matter of opinion, the value of a stone is what it will bring in the marketplace

This means that God is "allowing" this man to come forth at this time to eventually rule most, if not all of the earth, for a specified period of time As new messages are received in Microsoft Outlook, right-click on the message and left click on the command Create a Rule to apply a category or move the message to a folder If we're going to take this lame saying seriously, then why aren't we demanding that our kids be lazy, do everything wrong and take drugs? Then we could sit back and watch them do just the opposite? Why would God have wasted his time with Ten Commandments? Couldn't He have done better with the ten sinful options? Maybe we should be grateful that God doesn't have any notions The megaliths and stelae or other Neolithic Libraries are the subject of serious investigation again
