Nothing is lost, thanks to the wonderful internet! It's all there, Kate and Gerry!


I would hazard a guess that Kate and Gerry McCann would love to be living in the days before the internet, when interviews were paraphrased, if at all, in just a few newspapers, and the only way to find the copy was to visit the library or the newspapers' archives.

Now, though, all those interviews are on video and available on the internet for every Tom, Dick and Harry to view: their words and body language can be scrutinised, analysed and it's there for ever, or until someone shuts down the net or Carter-Ruck manage to delete it all, like the Langoliers in the Stephen King story of that name, gobbling up the past.

I wonder if Kate and Gerry have learned from those early videos and modified their behaviour in certain ways, from their own observations or from advice from experts in communication: they do seem to have spent rather a lot of that publicly donated money on experts. From the early videos, where they never looked at each other, but sat there in parallel, like a couple of stookies, they seemed to adapt their presentation skills in later videos and actually look at each other, instead of just doing the usual just-for-show hand holding.

Here, for the purpose of a reprise and to remind us that it's all there, is a selection with a comment or two!

1) Philmena McCann, sister of Gerry McCann, stating that Kate and Gerry are, 'negligible,' parents. May 5th 2007, two days after Madeleine disappeared.

2) Missing for a month: too young to be alone.

3) 100 days missing: "Madeleine was alive when she was abducted." (Gerry McCann)

Would an abductor carry away a dead body?
Perhaps implicit in that statement is also that whatever happened subsequently cannot be blamed on Kate and Gerry. After all, she was sleeping when they left her and she was alive when she was abducted. Whatever situation Madeleine then found herself in, was it their fault? They left her in good condition like a DVD that was stolen by burglars and claimed on the house insurance. That child was alive, normal and in good health, so give us your money!

4) Gerry McCann stomping off the set during an interview for Spanish TV. Oh diddums! Was that a difficult question?

5) The response to the Calpol question! Note the attention Gerry pays to his left earlobe: a very common indicator of lying!

6) Gerry McCann mentions murder, one week after the dogs were brought in.

7) Panorama 2007: Kate McCann trying to get her mouth under control and sounding like she opened thr back door and the dog bolted!

8) Gerry McCann suggesting that the reason the twins never woke up through all the noise in the apartment and their being carried to another apartment was that the abductor must have sedated them! An abductor entered the apartment, left no trace of himself, managed to drug three children, carrying one of them away, through a very narrow window in the space of a few minutes! Eat your heart out SAS!!

9) Madeleine asked why no one came when she was crying, but to her mother it was 'just a passing remark.'

10) Kate McCann did not phyisically search for her daughter: she was busy doing other things!

11) The McCann show their true colours as they get up laughing at the end of an interview.

12) Ask the dogs, Sandra!

13) Jaycee Lee Dugard gives them more hope! Oh yea! Madeleine might be being held as the sex slave to some nutter and that gives them hope! Yes, you really can make this stuff up!

14) What the twins have been told. Just wait till they can browse the internet for themselves!

15) Kate McCann outside the court in Lisbon: no evidence that Madeleine has been harmed! No, abduction by strangers and being taken from everything she knows, from an unlocked apartment in a foreign country would not harm her in any way! And this woman was working as a GP, with Child Protection training? Huh!

16) Gerry McCann, "The night WE FOUND HER."

17) By Spudgun: The real Madeleine McCann story.

Islam is the religion of compassion and peace. And bears don't sh*t in the woods!


I found this on CNN: the Imam talking about what is right with Islam.

He begins by talking about the opening of all 114 chapters of the Qur'An: God the all compassionate and all merciful. Well, let's start with the name. Allah is not referred to as God. The name Allah is used. Mohammad is described as the 'source of compassion to humanity.' This Imam must think that none of us have actually read the Qur'An and that we have all forgotten the history of the Islamic conquests, rape, pillage, slaves, murder and Mohammad, the source of compassion, consummating a marriage with a nine-year-old child.

The Imam talks eloquently about Sufi, the mystic side of Islam. I know a few people who are involved in Sufi and it is the totally peaceful and reflective side of Islam, though I think it is based more on the works of the Poet Rumi than on the Qur'An. The Imam is misleading people because Sufi is not the style of Islam practised in either Shi'a or Suni mosques and I would bet that it is not the style which will be practised at the Ground Zero mosque. He is being very deceitful in referring to Sufi when that is practised by a very small minority of Muslims and definitely not those who call themselves either Shi'a or Suni.

Speaking about the Sufi aspect of Islam and claiming this to be an important aspect of Muslim beliefs, is somewhat like trying to persuade a non-Christian that all Christians are monks and nuns.

And let's face it, where is the compassion for the wife who is beaten according to Qur'An principles, or the woman who is stoned for committing adultery? And what of the virgins promised to those who kill themselves and others in the name of their religion? Are we to understand that these virgins will be raped with compassion?

In referring to Allah as God, he is attempting to beguile listeners into believing the myth that all religions worship the same God. I believe this man is dangerous and he lies with every breath, but then the Qur'An tells him that it's OK to lie to non-believers. He is an accomplished speaker: he speaks softly, with gentle hand gestures, but that is part of his deception. Having watched this and having read the Qur'An, I think this man is like the snake in 'Jungle Book.'

He speaks softly with lies and his gently modulated voice is almost hypnotic. He's well rehearsed in the art of body language: his hands clasped in front, his almost bowing pose. This man, in my opinion, is more dangerous than all the Abu Hamzas and all the Anjem Choudarys of this world because the latter two speak the truth about Islam.
