Promoting Peace, Harmony, and Magic Ponies At The OIC

Posted on  by  (Gates of Vienna)
As we reported here last week, President Miloš Zeman of the Czech Republic made a remarkable speech at the a closed-door reception on May 26th to celebrate Israel’s Independence Day. Unique among Western political leaders, Mr. Zeman was willing to call out Islam itself — not “radicalism”, not “extremism”, not “Islamism”, but the “very essence of the ideology” — for its anti-Semitism and instigation of violence.

It’s no surprise that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation was very disappointed in what the Czech leader said. President Zeman made his speech almost two weeks ago, but the OIC’s statement of disapproval is still featured at the top of the organization’s main web page as of this writing. The speech was barely noticed in the Western press, but its prominence on the OIC’s website is an implicit recognition of its significance.

In case you missed it, here are a couple of paragraphs from the text that caused so much heartburn among the luminaries of the OIC:

So let me quote one of their sacred texts to support this statement: “A tree says, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. A stone says, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.” I would criticize those calling for the killing of Arabs, but I do not know of any movement calling for mass murdering of Arabs. However, I know of one anti-civilisation movement calling for the mass murder of Jews.

After all, one of the paragraphs of the statutes of Hamas says: “Kill every Jew you see.” Do we really want to pretend that this is an extreme viewpoint? Do we really want to be politically correct and say that everyone is nice and only a small group of extremists and fundamentalists is committing such crimes?

Below is the text of the OIC’s statement, with my own remarks interpolated:

OIC Secretary General expresses disappointment at the Czech President Miloš Zeman’s Statement against Islam

The Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Iyad Ameen Madani, expressed his disappointment at the reported statements made by the Czech President, Miloš Zeman, on 26 May 2014 at the Israeli Embassy in Prague that “Islamic ideology rather than individual groups of religious fundamentalists was behind violent actions similar to the gun attack at the Jewish Museum in Brussels.”

“I believe that this xenophobia and this racism or anti-Semitism stem from the very nature of the ideology on which these fanatical groups rely, I know about an anti-civilization movement that calls for the massive murdering of Jews,” the Czech President was quoted to say.

The OIC’s statement elides the Czech president’s words, but without including any ellipses. Specifically, it inserts a comma between “groups rely” and “I know about”, omitting Mr. Zeman’s quote of the hadith about the Jew-betraying tree: “A tree says, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. A stone says, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”

Now, why would the earnest scribblers at OIC headquarters want to skip that well-known and authoritative piece of Islamic scripture? As respected Muslim citizens of proven integrity, they would be the last people in the world to obfuscate any documentary evidence buttressing President Zeman’s case.

No, it must have been an oversight on their part. Or maybe an error at the printer’s. Or an HTML slip-up by an inexperienced webmaster. But surely not a deliberate omission…

Mr. Madani stated that the Czech President’s recent statements on Islam are in line with the previous statements the President made in the past, where he linked “believers in the Quran with anti-Semitic and racist Nazis”; and that “the enemy is anti civilization spreading from North Africa to Indonesia, where two billion people live”.

Such statements, said Mr. Madani, not only shows President Zeman’s lack of knowledge and misunderstanding of Islam, but also ignores the historical facts that anti-Semitism and Nazism are a European phenomena through and through. They have no roots in Islam, neither as a religion nor as a history or civilization. The Holocaust did not take place in the area from North Africa to Indonesia, Madani said.

The authors are evidently unfamiliar with The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism by Andrew G. Bostom, in which the evidence of 1400 years of Islamic Jew-hatred is meticulously compiled. Perhaps someone should send them a copy of the book, which will provide ample leisure-time reading during the long hungry daylight hours of Ramadan next month.

Were you waiting for the dreaded “Islamophobia” to make an appearance? Well, here it comes, albeit with a spelling error:

Too small? Click here This is a satirical website. None of what you read here has anything to do with Islam, because Islam is a Religion of Peace. Everybody knows that good Muslims never do the things they do, (because Allah does it for them, Quran 8:12) and we know that only our misperceptions, ignorance and stereotyping of Islam makes Muslims chop off heads, kill and rape women and children, bomb subways, buses, nightclubs and fly jets into buildings. If it wasn't for the media and da Jooozzz, we wouldn't even know its happening. We welcome open, honest, thoughtful, and vigorous discussion in the comments threads, so do yourself a favour and don't accuse us of being 'haters' because we are loving, tolerant people. Don't curse us, don't threaten us with death or hellfire, and don't accuse us of being "just like the terrorists" because we don't do to Muslims what they do to us or to themselves. Yes, we know that only idiots oppose Islam and sensible people submit, but  you should know that we are ignorant bigots, hypocrites and Islamophobes, and we prefer to remain that way... But since you are forcing yourselves (and your abhorrent belief-system on us) we will defend ourselves, because we must. Avoid tu quoque and ad hominem attacks. Don't bother with circular reasoning either, we been there, done it.  If you annoy us, you will be banned and your posts summarily deleted. Try to add to the discussion, don't try to sell snake oil, don't try to cover us with Islamic shrouds of kitman and taqiyya, don't bother with da'awa, (we've heard it before) don't spam us with long pieces of cut & paste, write in English, try to tell the truth, (we know that's hard for you because you are all pathological liars) but the truth will set you free, try it! One more thing: don't think you can post here under multiple monikers. You will quickly be disappeared! The same goes for trufers and conspiracy kooks: you get one chance, one time. Blow it out of your ass if you must; put your stupidity on display. But you won't be back, trust me on that. Take a deep breath before you post, try to make some sense, do not just vent, do not make a fool of yourself and if you prove us wrong you can earn 10 Islamic dollars for your piggy bank. Deal?
