    Oh good grief.

    Austria: Judge Rules That Yodeling Offends Muslims

    by Elad Benari

    It seems as though in Austria, the popular yodel is an insult to Muslims.

    An Austrian court has recently fined a citizen for yodeling while mowing his lawn, according to a report in The Kronen Zeitung newspaper.

    The citizen, 63-year-old Helmut G., was told by the court that his yodeling offended his next-door Muslim neighbors, who accused him of trying to mock and imitate the call of the Muezzin.

    In Muslim tradition, the Muezzin is the chosen person at a mosque who leads the call to prayer at Friday services and the five daily times for prayer from one of the mosque's minarets.

    The yodel is a song which is sung with an extended note which rapidly and repeatedly changes in pitch and makes a high-low-high-low sound. Developed in the Central Alps as a method of communication between alpine mountaineers or between alpine villages, the yodel later became part of the region's traditional lore and musical expression. The technique is used in many cultures throughout the world and Austria is one of the countries where it is most popular.

    Unfortunately for Helmut G., his neighbors were in the middle of a prayer when he started to yodel. The Kronen Zeitung reported that he was fined 800 Euros after judges ruled that he could have tried to offend his neighbors and ridicule their belief.

    Helmut G. clarified that “It was not my intention to imitate or insult them. I simply started to yodel a few tunes because I was in such a good mood.”

    I find most of Islam offensive as it portrays me as an infidel, lower than a dog. Who will stand up for me in the courts?

    Yodeling would be better than this echoing through the neighborhood....

    Tell this to Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, or Elton Britt and a host of other great yodelers. You can't yodel and call your camel. Charlie Henderson

    Bullets used in OEF and OIF should be produced by homosaxsual owned corporations and waved over porkfat. Wonder if we source any bullets from IMI???Recall the optical sight company that had to remove an offensive Christian religious epithet on a sight they produced for our warfighters. It must be horribly offensive for Muslims if a soldier blesses himself to Christ before spattering a wacko terrorist kook's head all over the afghan countryside from a mile away. But - nobody complained at all when the Muslime kooks very loudly praised allah as they giddily executed those Americans a couple years back and filmed it for web consumption. The Nation is getting weaker by the day...

    Will I have to destroy all of my Slim Whitman albums? There goes "Una Paloma Blanca"!

    Seriously though, why should anyone be held responsible for offending anyone else. If a party is offended - LEAVE or learn to put up with it.

    I find headscarves offensive. They denote subserviance which should offend all intelligent people. If a Muslim finds a yarmulke offensive will the Jews have to give them up. What about church bells or Gregorian Chants. Will they be forbidden as well.

    I am tired of the Muslim bs. We are going to go to war with them eventually, why not now!

    Was I the only one who laughed at the mere title of this thread?

    The judge who ruled thus should be hanged by the neck until dead right next to the muslims that complained.

    Time for the lard solution water balloons. On the front door of their mosques.

    We bow to them while they bomb Christians.

    Time for a backbone to show.
