Get the Lead Out

It's a serious health hazard. Get the lead out.

This is, of course, about sewing needles in your food, not about paint on your book covers or nuts and bolts on your motorcycle. No, forget about all the dangers inherent in eating your household stuff and things in the garage. I suggest you consider looking in the fridge for the real dangerous stuff. But that's 'cause I'm a Rightwing religious bigot and an islamophobe, right? I'm concerned about sewing needles in the lunch meat, and important people are concerned about young teenagers eating their motorcycles. Shows what I know. Sewing needles in your food? It's a "common nuisance." The fact that a Shi'a Muslima put needles into nine varieties of food products doesn't mean anything because aside from the bagels, one of the nine is turkey and not pork. So there. She was caught, put in jail for the night, and faces a charge of being a common nuisance. Nosh on.

Yes, there are cases of Muslims poisoning our food, but hey, everybody does it. Like the local church cake sale. Would you eat a cake from a local church?

Woman charged in meat needles case in court Friday

Canwest News Service Published: Friday, March 27, 2009

GUELPH, Ont. -- An Ontario woman charged in connection with a case of tampered food at a store in Guelph, Ont., is a former employee of a Maple Leaf Foods plant in the city, the company said in a statement Friday.

Mastoora Qezil, 41, was arrested by Guelph police Thursday and is facing a common nuisance charge. She was held in custody overnight and was expected to be released Friday after an appearance in bail court, Guelph police said.


One of the comments at the piece above:

Nsangoma: Brief History of Qezil Bash The Qezil Bash (or Qizilbash) are of Mediterranean sub-stock - and speak Dari. They are Imami Shi'a, and are scattered throughout Afghanistan, primarily in urban centers. There are thousands and thousands Qizilbash living in Afghanistan.

And what does that mean to infidels?
Qizilbash or Kizilbash (Nastaliq: قزلباش - Qizilbāš; Ottoman Turkish for "Red Heads") is a name given to a wide variety of Shī‘ī militant groups (ghulāt) that flourished in Anatolia and Kurdistan from the late 13th century onwards, and later helped to found the Safavid dynasty of Iran.[1] The expression "Red Heads" is derived from their distinctive crimson headwear (tāj) with twelve gores (tark), known in Persian as "Haydar's Crown" (تاج حیدر - Tāj-e Ḥaydar),[2] indicating their adherence to the twelve Ithnā‘asharī Imāms and to Ḥaydar Ṣafawī, the spiritual leader (sheikh) of the Ṣafawiyyah movement.

[T]heir spiritual grandmaster Haydar, the head of the Ṣafawiyyah Sufi order, organized his followers into a body of militant troops.

Theories have been put forward by scholars to connect the Kizilbash to certain religious groups and secret societies throughout history, like the Mazdaki movement in the Sassanid Empire, or its more radical offspring, the Persian Khurrami sect. Like the Kizilbash, the latter were an early Shī‘ī ghulat group[1] and dressed in red, for which they were termed "the red-haired ones" (Arabic: محمرهmuḥammirah) in medieval sources.[4] In this context, Turkish scholar Abdülbaki Gölpinarli sees the Kizilbash as "spiritual descendants of the Khurramites".[1]

It has also been speculated that the group had its origins among the mystical Ismaili Assassin sect.[5] However, most historians dispute this as no influence of Ismaili beliefs is obvious in Kizilbash practices.

So I'm feeling much better that a Muslima who put sewing needles into our food is not, according to most historians, directly linked to Ismaili assassins. She's a common nuisance.

Besides, Schneiders meat company is known for bad food. A dozen died from poisoned food recently packed outside of Toronto, North York. "How it (listeria) got there or where exactly it is in that equipment, we may never know," admits Maple Leaf foods Linda Smith.

Me neither. Not a clue. What I do know is not to eat my motorcycle.
