Last week the UN met to define “Islamophobia” because a “deep misunderstanding of Islam is fueling anger, hatred, and fear about one of the world’s great religions.” I think I can help the UN and it will not require a UN conference or large consulting fees paid to me. “Islamophobia” is a non-word that was contrived to suggest that anyone concerned or fearful of Muslims is somehow unreasonable, unfair, and maybe unstable. The US media assumes that all sensitive, sane, and sensible people would recoil from Islamophobia like mythical vampires recoil from sunlight. However, that is political correctness run amok.
During the conference, Kofi Annan (standing in deep doo doo from the multi-billion dollar oil- for-food scandal) urged people not to judge all Muslims by the acts of a few extremists who target civilians. He rejected “widely held views that Islam is incompatible with democracy or irrevocably hostile to modernity and women’s rights.”
Has Annan been living in a cave? Doesn’t he know that Islam has always been incompatible with democracy? Muslims will cooperate and use democracy to further their cause of world dominion but their minds are closed tighter than a miser’s wallet where freedom of non-Muslims is concerned.
As to women’s rights, is there any doubt where Koranic Muslims stand? You will note that American Muslims are not demanding a change in the treatment of women in Muslim nations. Female circumcision (read: sexual mutilation often performed on little girls with a dull blade and no anesthesia!) is common even in Germany, Austria and Netherlands; women cannot vote; then you have unfairness in inheritance laws; unequal treatment in courts; wife beating, etc.
The mistreatment of women comes directly from Mohammed’s teachings: more women in hell than men; prayers are interrupted by a black dog, an ass, or a woman; withhold sex from a wife then beat her if she is difficult; he took his slave to bed; he took his son’s wife as his own; he had a nine-year-old wife; etc. Sounds as if Mohammed was in fact “irrevocably hostile to modernity and women’s rights.” And if Annan were informed or honest he would know that Muslims worldwide are obligated to emulate the lifestyle of Mohammad as well as follow their two “holy” books.
Egyptian judge Kamal Aboulmagd is quoted as saying: “In Islam and in Islamic literature there is no such thing as ‘a holy war.’” The confused judge added, “This is [a] Western invention that was attributed to us, I don’t know how and why and when.” Well, let us check out whether that is an accurate statement. Anyone who reads the papers or watches television knows that Muslim clerics in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, etc., are convinced that “holy war” is a reality. Jihad was not “attributed” to Muslims by wicked, hateful Americans. It is the core teaching of the Koran and Hadith and no matter if Muslim leaders say otherwise, that wouldn’t make it so. US media people who declare jihad as being benign are little more than pathetic prostitutes.
“Al-Jihad (holy fighting) in Allah’s Cause (with full force of numbers and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established….Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim….” End of Jihad discussion!
My Koran was published in Medina so that makes it as authoritative as you can get and it clearly teaches “holy war” or Jihad in sura 2:190 and many other places. To be sure that the dullest of Muslims understand the meaning of that verse, Muslim theologians added a footnote on page 39 that hammers home the truth: “Al-Jihad (holy fighting) in Allah’s Cause (with full force of numbers and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established….Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim….” End of Jihad discussion!
John Esposito, a major cheerleader for Islam said. “The message at the end of the day is clear, the message is simple–Islam is not the enemy, religious extremism is.” John is wrong. At the beginning of the day, at the end of the day, Islam is the enemy! No, all Muslims do not follow the Koran so they are decent, law abiding Americans; but Koranic Islam is the enemy.
The US is not at war with terror, but with a religion/culture that has promoted terror from its beginning. We are involved with a clash of civilizations that may not end for a hundred years! In other words, we are involved with a Hundred Years’ War that will result in the destruction of some nations.
The AP reported Osama bin Laden as saying, “In essence, this war is a religious war.” Osama was right and right is right no matter who says it and wrong is wrong if the UN and every media person in the world say it. Our “War on Terror” is a Religious War that may last a hundred years. The choice is not between war and no war but war and continual war. Plan on it!
Many will be disturbed by that statement but it is better to be disturbed by truth than deceived by lies.
