We ran this story yesterday already. Â Robert Spencer has answered these phony calls to put the genie back in the bottle here:Â Paki Lies & Denials
The bad news is that there are a hell of a lot of naive, gullible Westerners who are just dying to lick it up, no matter how many these “extremists” blow up or how many heads they cut off. Â Good luck with that, Schmucks! As if there was some mythical Islam that doesn’t teach terror, and Islam that doesn’t teach that Islam must dominate, that to kill and die for Allah is not an obligation for the believers, and that the sharia must not Â be established in all the lands on earth in order to please the Muhammedan blood-god, ‘Allah”….

May 20 (Bloomberg) — Pakistan’s Prime MinisterYousuf Raza Gilanicalled on Islamic scholars to help root out extremism, as security forces waged an urban offensive against Taliban militants in the northwesternÂ Swat Valley.
“Terrorists are perverting the teachings of Islam” and scholars should speak with one voice against the militants, Gilani said yesterday.

Al-Qaradhawi, Al-Sudayyis, Other Prominent Arab Islamic Scholars: Kashmiri Movement Is Jihad
Several prominent Arab Islamic scholars andÂ MeccaÂ imams, have criticized Taliban leader Maulana Sufi Muhammad for saying that the Kashmiri movement is not jihad because it does not seek to enforce IslamicÂ shari’a. Among the critics are leading Sunni cleric Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi, head of the International Union of Muslim Scholars and Sheikh Abd Al-Rahman Al-Sudayyis, imam of Al-Haram Mosque in Mecca.
Sheik yer’mami sez:
Gee, I’m so glad we cleared that up. You have no idea how many Muhammedan’s have sent us angry protests over our jihad reporting in Kashmir telling us we got it all wrong and that its all just another ‘regional conflict’- which, you guessed it, would end the minute India would turn Kashmir over to Pakistan. But would it? The history of Islamic jihad clearly shows that jihad conquest always results in more demands for more territory, and creates more… jihad.Â
