Who is more full of shiite here, is it O’Reilly or Ahmed Rehab?
Ahmed Rehab is a metrosexual Muslim Brotherhood trumpet who should be locked up in Gitmo. O’Reilly is the head blowboy Â from Fox Â who knows nothing about Islam and believes “the risk [of free speech] is higher than the reward” (Pinhead O’Reilly)
Rehab’s pretzel logic:
“when you call it a Muslim problem, you have a problem. Â Because you are saying the problem exists because they are Muslim, therefore, its a Muslim problem. That’s incorrect logic. The problem is not that they’re Muslim, the problem is that these particular groups of people are extremists. Now those Muslims who are not extremists, they are not part of the Muslim problem, or are they?”
My head hurts. I wanna check out….
Pamela Geller exposes more of Ahmed’s circular logic, Â here:
Islamic supremacists are wholly intellectually bereft. They cannot answer the arguments of anti-jihadists, since anti-jihadists in general simply explicate what is in the Qur’an and Sunnah, and show how jihadists act upon these texts and teachings. So since they cannot engage their opponents on the level of ideas, they instead try to bludgeon them into silence. They do this either by ignoring us altogether, or by engaging in the Alinsky tactic of ridicule — which allows them to adopt a posture of superiority, but only reveals their utter intellectual exhaustion and desperation.
Examples of this abound. Most recently, Islamic supremacist metrosexual Ahmed Rehab of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group with numerous ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, has responded tomy pointing out a lie he told about never ducking debate with adolescent ridicule and abuse rather than substance.
Rehab’s refusal to engage his opposition’s arguments is a sign that he feels keenly his own intellectual vacuity. He knows that in light of it he can do nothing but ignore, mock, or try to bully people who speak the truth. Even the Soviet Union under Stalin was confident enough that its own people were sufficiently cowed, and that it had enough useful idiots among the intelligentsia abroad, that it was able to mount high-profile show trials of dissenters and Stalin’s political rivals in the 1930s.
But by the 1970s and 1980s, the Soviet regime had grown sclerotic, and had lost the assurance that its own people were still terrorized enough to keep silent, or that it could still count on a foreign intelligentsia willfully blind enough to defend the regime. And so instead of mounting flashy show trials, it packed off its opponents to mental hospitals under the cover of darkness. They simply didn’t exist any longer. It was an effective tactic in the short run, as it certainly silenced their opponents of the day; in the long run, however, it was an expression of exhaustion, an admission of defeat.
But as Rehab, his fellow Islamic supremacist metrosexual Reza Aslan, and others practice these tactics, the implicit admission rings louder and clearer all the time: they have no arguments. They can’t really explain away what’s in the Qur’an and Sunnah — the long-winded “refutations” and “proofs” that Islam is really a Religion of Peaceâ„¢ are rendered hollow every day by the jihad news worldwide: if “Islamophobes” are really misunderstanding the peaceful teachings of Islam, then coincidence of coincidences, so are innumerable Muslims, including Islamic clerics and scholars, in exactly the same way.
