Why has this issue gotten so much attention? The ONLY news that should have EVER gotten attention is not “Burn a Koran Day”, it’s the REACTION of Islamists threatening suicide bombings over this stupid publicity stunt.
But instead, we are out in full force not paying any attention to the EXTREME reaction to it, but rather the act itself.
In an Islamic country they would have been ripped in peaces by a Muselmanic mob…..
Flashback # 3: ‘Palestinians’ used Bible as toilet paper
Back in June, four Christians were arrested in Michigan for passing out leaflets at an Arab festival.Â Remember this?Â The Christians were arraigned and are being represented by the same brilliant legal team that brought my free speechÂ lawsuit against Detroit,Â the Thomas More Law Center.
Yesterday, Muslims were proselytizing and passing out Islamic leaflets at a fair in Minnesota. The AP plays it this way:Â Muslims Take to Minn. State Fair to Repair Image. Â Â The police did nothing. Why two sets of rules for Muslims and non-Muslims? Sharia rules America now?
But it gets worse, much worse:
Note first of all the conflation of “anti-Muslim rhetoric” with actual crimes like the stabbing of the taxi driver and the fire at the mosque in Tennessee, despite the fact that those who are speaking out against the jihad and Islamic supremacism have consistently disavowed and opposed violence and vigilantism. Note also the hysterical reaction to the Qur’an burning in Florida. This illustrates what I have noted here many times: Islamic supremacists want and need hate crimes against Muslims, as they will attempt to use them to shut down all legitimate opposition to the jihad and Islamic supremacism, and to tar all their opponents as advocates of violence and hatred.
It is likely that this appeal, although the DOJ made no official comment, fell on fertile ground in the Obama Justice Department, given Obama’s long-standing tendency to appoint foes of the freedom of speech to influential positions: Kagan, Sotomayor, Koh, Sunstein, Genachowski, etc. etc. etc.
“Anti-Muslim Rhetoric: Free Speech or Hate Speech? Faith Coalition Calls on DOJ to Take Public Stance Against Anti-Muslim Rhetoric,” by John R. Parkinson forÂ ABC News, August 31:
WASHINGTON, Aug. 31, 2010 — A coalition of faith groups met with Justice Department officials Monday to encourage the Obama administration to take a more public stance against anti-Muslim hate speech and hate crimes.Farhana Khera, president and executive director of Muslim Advocates, said the community leaders requested the meeting due to an “alarming rise in anti-Muslim hate” that has become commonplace as the debate over the so-called “Ground Zero mosque” in New York City continues.
“Unfortunately, this very escalating trend of hate speech in the country has now transformed into actual acts of violence and the attorney general, as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, has an obligation to really enforce the laws, including the hate crime laws and holding those that engage in hate crimes responsible,” Khera said.
Last week in New York City, a taxi cab driver was repeatedly stabbed allegedly by a passenger who asked him, “Are you a Muslim?” before the attack.
On Saturday, a fire was discovered at the construction site for a mosque and community center in Murfreesboro, Tenn., that has been a topic of controversy in the city. Police said the fire is being investigated as a possible arson and hate crime.
And a church in Gainesville, Fla., has announced it plans to burn copies of the Quran on Sept. 11, to mark the anniversary of the 2001 terror attacks.
“We are a thriving democracy, we appreciate free speech, but when it crosses the line into violence, that’s against the law,” she said. “And the [Justice] Department, the federal government, the nation’s chief law enforcement officer is going to prosecute and hold them responsible to the fullest extent of the law….
On a day when dhimmiÂ Christian leaders stood with Hamas-linked ISNA to defame the 70% Americans who oppose the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero, it was refreshing to see this piece, reminding us that not all Christian believers today are dupes of Islamic supremacists. “Say No to the Ground Zero Victory Mosque,” by John Zmirak atÂ Inside Catholic, September 8:
This weekend, my home town will be the siteÂ of an extraordinary event. Let me beg everyone who is able to make the pilgrimage to Ground Zero on the ninth anniversary of the Islamist mass-murder attack on our country. It is there thatthousands of citizens will gather at 3 p.m. at Park Place (betweenÂ Church and West Broadway) to register their outrage at the attempt by foreign-funded, terrorist-friendly Muslims to build a triumphalist mosque at the site of an Islamist slaughter, replacing a building that was damaged by one of the planes hijacked by 19 orthodox Muslims. (Nineteen is aÂ mystical number in Islamic theology — as significant for them as twelve is forÂ Christians — which seems to be why Osama bin Laden recruited precisely that many terrorists).The archbishop ofÂ New YorkÂ has compared the controversy over the Ground Zero mosque to that which raged in the 1990s over theÂ Carmelite convent at Auschwitz — and gently asked the mosque-builders to look for another, less inflammatory site, just as Pope John Paul II moved the convent away from the death camp. I am glad Archbishop Timothy DolanÂ weighed in to make this comparison, and appreciate his courage. In most of the West,Â Catholic leaders are twisting the Faith into knots to accommodate the most outrageous demands of imperialist Islam. For instance, in North Africa and France, Muslims who wish to convert toÂ Catholicism — and Islam imposes the death penalty for apostasy, enforced in many countries — have found that some priests and bishops areÂ unwilling to baptize them. […]
And if we let them build it, 9/11 really will have been the victory that they think it was. They will smell our weakness and fear, sneer at us, and move on to the next and greater outrage. Enabling such arrogance does not amount to turning the other cheek, accepting a minor slight out of love for peace; arguably, that’s what John Paul did in moving theÂ AuschwitzÂ convent. No, supporting Islamic expansion in the West is an act of moral cowardice, which wins people praise as “tolerant” and cosmopolitan, for which the next generation will pay the price. And our children will curse us for it.
