With ‘leaders’ like that, Europe is toast:
As usual, the Jewish Kapo’s are afraid of their own shadows and carry water for their masters:
“It’s often difficult to be a Muslim in France,” Grand Rabbi Gilles Bernheim said last week.Â “This difficulty is worse today in this unhealthy climate, aggravated by talk that divides rather than unites,” the Jewish leader told the daily Le Monde.
French Religious Leaders Protest Debate on Islam (source)
France’s chief religions are protesting plans by President Nicolas Sarkozy’s
conservative socialist party rabble to hold a debate next week on Islam’s role in the country, joining a growing chorus of voices who fear it could stigmatize Muslims and worsen social tensions. While the religious leaders in France claim that this debate will add to the present religious conflict, the backers of the debate say it’s aimed at discussing France’s secular traditions, and how to accommodate Islamic customs.
The main champion of the debate, UMP leader Jean-Francois Cope, issued an open letter to Muslims this week saying he wants a new “Code of Secularity” that would spell out rules about how to keep public schools, streets and businesses secular.“The practice of Islam in a secular nation is not the burqa, not prayers in the street, nor the rejection of diversity,” he wrote in the letter, published on the website of the weekly L’Express.
In America too:
But not to worry, help is on the way:
Consider this: after the arrest of Khalid Aldawsari, the would-be jihad mass murderer in Lubbock, Texas, the Lubbock-area Muslim community issued no statement saying that “we profoundly respect the non-Muslim community and regret any appearance that would suggest otherwise.” When Muhammad Hussain, the would-be jihad bomber in Baltimore, was arrested, the Baltimore-area Muslim community issued no statement saying that “we profoundly respect the non-Muslim community and regret any appearance that would suggest otherwise.” When Mohamed Mohamud, the would-be jihad bomber in Portland, was arrested, the Portland-area Muslim community issued no statement saying that “we profoundly respect the non-Muslim community and regret any appearance that would suggest otherwise.” When Faisal Shahzad, the would-be Times Square jihad mass-murderer, was arrested, the New York-area Muslim community issued no statement saying that “we profoundly respect the non-Muslim community and regret any appearance that would suggest otherwise.”
You get the idea. And of course none of those communities would ever have thought to issue such a statement, for to have done so would have been to admit to some form of that anathema of anathemas known as “collective responsibility.” When a Muslim commits an act of jihad violence or is arrested in a jihad plot, it has absolutely nothing to do with any other Muslims. And yet the notion of collective responsibility is very much implied in Rachel Huber’s statement: she is assuming, on pain of “Islamophobia,” that all Muslims are collectively insulted by the showing of an anti-jihad film in a church. Yet why should that be so? Why shouldn’t it apply only to jihadists and Islamic supremacist stealth jihadists, and not to the Vast Majority of Peaceful Muslims?
The notion of collective responsibility cuts both ways: Muslims have no responsibility to do anything in the wake of jihad violence and plots, because such violence and plots have nothing to do with Muslims as a whole; yet to resist jihad violence and plotting in any way somehow insults Muslims in the aggregate.
In both cases, the Infidels lose. Of course.
Madness upon madness.
“Showing of controversial film canceled,” by Jay M. Grossman forÂ Observer & Eccentric, April 3:
Maybe it was equipment failure, or perhaps a communication breakdown.Either way, the Christ Church Cranbrook canceled a showing of the film, The Third Jihad, that was set to run Thursday. Spokeswoman Rachel Huber chalked it up to a possible misunderstanding.
“We were given the wrong information and we went with it,” she said Wednesday.
In a notice sent out to local newspapers, Huber said the Bloomfield Hills church was initially asked by a nonpartisan group to screen a different film on that date. Instead, the church discovered the Bloomfield Republican Women’s Club planned to show The Third Jihad, a controversial film that explores “the radical presence of Islam in America.”
At that point, Huber said the group was asked to move their showing of the film to another site.
“We profoundly respect the Islamic community and regret any appearance that would suggest otherwise,” she wrote in the notice. “We look forward to continued interfaith collaboration and ministry in the future.”…
