Criticizing Islam

Diana West in the Washington Times lauds those who, in 2006, stood up to criticize Islam.

Personally I will not criticize Islam in today's entry. There is no need. The group behavior of Muslims in the name of Islam provides all the commentary necessary, for just a few examples:
  • Cartoon riots;
  • The murder of a Catholic nun in response to teh Pope's historical comments on the speread of Islam;
  • The reaction to Abdul Rahman converting to Christianity;
  • The 6 lying, flying imams (asking for seat extenders and not using them, not sitting in assigned seats, loudly praising Osama bin Laden);
  • Over 7000 terror attacks in the name of Islam since 9/11/2001. (For lists by year, Religion of Peace.)
  • And so many more in 2006 and before.
Actions speak louder than words.

Nancy Pelosi's Great Start

Nancy Pelosi's Top Blunders as Speaker of the House (to be):
  • Nomination of ethics-challenged John Murtha as House Majority leader.
  • Nomination of ethics-challenged Alcee Hastings (a man ineleigible for a security clearance) for chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
  • After running on a campaign to implement the 9/11 Commission recommendations, immediately rejecting those recommendations with respect to the organization of the House.
  • Nomination of the intelligence-challenged Sylvestre Reyes as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee (after six years on the committee, including 9/11, he does not know whether al Qaeda or Hezbollah are Sunni or Shiite).
No doubt there are more to come from the champion of San Francisco values.

The Cure for Islamophobia

In the St. Petersburg Times, Dr. Adel Elkin suggests taht Islamaphobia can be treated and cured with education. Actually, the cure lies wholly within the Muslim world. Muslims have the power to cure Islamaphobia:
  • Stop vigilante beheadings of innocents (such as Daniel Pearl).
  • Stop vigilante beheadings of converts from Islam to other religions
  • Stop government sanctioned death penalties for converts from Islam to other religions
  • Stop rioting over minor slights, like cartoons
  • Stop issuing death fatwas over minor slights, like Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses
  • Stop commiting violent acts (rioting and shootings) when someone prominent suggests that Islam is a violent religion
  • Stop suicide - mass murders (bombings, flying planes into buildings etc.)
  • Stop teaching children to hate Christians and Jews (primarily done in the Middle East)
  • Stop engaging in disruptive behavior in airports (asking for seat extenders and not using them, not sitting in assigned seats, loudly praising Osama bin Laden)
  • Stop issuing death threats to the West in general
  • Stop chanting "Death to America"
  • Stop Middle Eastern imams relocated to the West from preaching hate in mosques
  • Stop speaking hate in Arabic while speaking love in English
  • Stop trying to persude non-Muslims that Islam is really a religion of peace and tolerance before stopping all the above -- it just sounds like taqiyya to us.
It is not a "phobia" if the fear is reality-based. In our mulitcultural society, we will love American Muslims for their efforts to do the above (contrasted with the work of CAIR) if the efforts are public and visible. If we do not see these efforts, Islam will continue to EARN the disrepsct and dislike of Western non-Muslims.

Peace and Tolerance?

Per Don Feder:


Consider the inter-connectedness of the following incidents, all of which took place in the past few months:

* In Indonesia, three Christian schoolgirls were beheaded.
* In Iraq, a Syrian Orthodox priest was kidnapped, tortured, and murdered.
* In Somalia, a nun was shot to death as she left the hospital where she worked, tending the sick and dying.
* In Lebanon, just days ago, a cabinet minister was assassinated.
* In Britain, authorities uncovered a conspiracy in which native-born Brits plotted to blow up several trans-Atlantic flights, killing as many as 3,000.
* In Afghanistan, suicide bombers are at work again.
* In Iraq, they never stopped. Additionally, the week before last, a group of worshippers were abducted from a mosque, doused with gasoline and burned to death in what’s described as “sectarian violence.”
* In France, a high school philosophy teacher is in hiding after very credible death threats following publication of a September 19th commentary in Le Figaro.
* Some 139 people died in riots in Nigeria, Libya, Pakistan, and Afghanistan – following the publication of Danish cartoons.
* Europe is experiencing the worst wave of anti-Semitic violence since Kristallnacht. The former director of the U.S. Holocaust Museum reports there an average of 12 assaults a day on Jews in Paris.
* In Kosovo, 90 percent of Serbs gave been ethnically cleansed from the province since 1999. The rest live in a state of siege.
* In Mumbai, India, a series of blasts killed almost 200.
* In Gaza, terrorists recently celebrated the latest “ceasefire” by raining more rockets on southern Israel.
* And the leader of more than a billion Catholics received death threats and demands that he convert after giving a speech in which he called for a balance of faith and reason, and quoted a 14th century Byzantine emperor.

What do the foregoing have in common?

No Prayer, No Head

Ya gotta love Sharia law when it means folks get beheaded for not praying 5 times a day. (Heavy sarcasm.)

But that is the way it will be in a town in Africa soon, according to the AP.

Read it all.

Moonbat Mental Illness

I have long wondered about liberals. their opinions are so often irrational as to border on mental illness, I thought.

They love government, so. How could any rational person think that government would be the ultimate in fairness? when has any government, anywhere been a paragon of fairness? No rational person could think that way.

How could any rational person claim to believe in free speech, but then shout down, drown out anyone who disagrees with them? How could any rational person think that free speech does not include insulting or uncomfortable speech?

Yet these strange beliefs are typical of today's liberals.

Now it is all explained in a new book by a psychiatrist, The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness. Liberals really are crazy.

Moonbats Behaving Like Jihadist Muslims

By now everyone who gets the news outside the MSM has learned about how the Saudis and other Muslim nations begin teaching hatred of Jews and Christians to children at very young ages.

Now we lean that the American moonbats are behaving like Muslims, teaching hatred of Christians and Republicans. See the chlling video here.

Child abuse.

Sharia Law

I think everyone agrees that most Muslims are not terrorists. Of those who are not, some additional percentage financially support terrorist works. Of the remainder, of Muslims, some percentage do not provide financial support, but secretly cheer terrorist efforts. Of the remainder of Muslims, I believe a majority of the sincerely peaceful Muslims support imposition of Sharia law on the world, including the United States.

To begin to understand Sharia law, there is an excellent blog, Sharia Law for Dummies. Read it here.

Opposition to Voter ID is Racist?

I read a recent Mother Jones article (don't ask why) that noted that voter ID laws have a negligible effect on elections.  OK so far.  T...
