Winds of Jihad

German President Wulff:
“Islam is part of Germany, Â I am the president of Muslims too…”
Europe is heading for a world of pain.
What I cannot understand is what made the Germans turn on the Jews?
Equally perplexing is why havn’t the Europeans turned on the muslims?
It cannot be long before it kicks off.
“Incitement” is the new buzz word
Allegations of “incitement” increasingly used to attempt to quash criticism of Islam
As reported in this story, a Muslim’s written complaint against Geert Wilders at his trial today claimed that “My family and I no longer feel safe in the Netherlands,” because of his criticism of Islam and of Muslim communities’ conduct while living in the West, and because of his film, Fitna.
The claim seems like a far-fetched sob story, but it was nonetheless part of a presentation intended to represent broader Muslim opinion in order to sway the court against Wilders. And it is part of a larger trend than this court case.
Indeed, as one recalls the past few months, there has been a detectable change in approach among Islam’s spokespeople and apologists.
One hardly even sees anymore the formerly classic moves to deflect criticism of Islam’s teachings: the old chestnuts like “You don’t speak Arabic and you’re missing the subtlety,” or “You’re cherry-picking verses and interpreting them out of context,” or the magical apologetic sleight of hand by which the “Sahih,” or “sound” ahadith suddenly become less “Sahih” when their accounts of appalling behavior by Muhammad are quoted critically by non-Muslims.
Rather, there is a curious uniformity lately in attempts to portray all criticism of Islam as incitement, and examples abound. Among others, there is Daisy Khan’s assertion that opponents of the Ground Zero mega-mosque represent a kind “metastasized anti-semitism” aimed at Muslims. There is Reza Aslan’s slanderous labeling of Stop the Islamization of America as a Neo-Nazi group, thus implying Nazi-like intentions on its part.
There is the Organization of the Islamic Conference which, according to this report, called a book about the Danish Muhammad cartoons “provocative and inciting,” and that was even after the book had been sanitized of reprints of the individual cartoons to deflect anticipated Muslim outrage. Again: Incitement to what? It’s a book about drawings!
But that doesn’t stop the OIC or their sympathizers who argue, as a corollary, that all criticism of Islam that can’t be assuaged with a little one-way “interfaith dialogue” must be motivated by hatred, and is thus necessarily both irrational and dangerous.
Never mind, speaking of irrational and dangerous behavior, that despite all claims to “incitement,” the people getting hurt in the aftermath of various “insults” are either Muslims injured or killed in Muslim countries in protests that turn to rampages, or non-Muslims threatened, attacked or murdered at the hands of Muslims who feel it is their right and duty to seek blood as recompense for hurt feelings.
No, the facts won’t stop them from pressing on to stop the discussion on all levels: more immediately, that means stopping whatever debate is currently in progress, like the one surrounding the Ground Zero mega-mosque. But more broadly, the goal as explicitly stated by the OIC is to implement “a legally binding institutional instrument” to do away with such speech.
It is in this context that such testimony against Wilders has come forth.
Granted, one may argue that Muslim spokespeople have been reduced to crying “Nazi” and alleging incitement out of desperation, because they have played all their other cards unsuccessfully, and the routine has become worn out. Unfortunately, the mainstream media have proven themselves willing enablers nonetheless. But the more the “incitement” card is played, however, the more obvious it should become to those who still “believe their lyin’ eyes.”
And one thing is certain: as long as Islamic groups believe this approach is working, we will see more of it.
It goes way back to when the Jews were the only “Money Lenders”. Jesus threw them out of the temple. So, historically Jews were always hated in Europe. They could fund the armies of Kings. So, the word got about.
After World War 1, “The War to End all Wars”, on returning home from the trenches, German soldiers found their families starving and with no home anymore. The Jewish money lenders had the lot, home and food. The two essentials for life.
Now this is not to say all Jews were money lenders, but those old hatreds that people have come to the fore. It was unfair – but, so is life. Their money was worthless. One day you go out to buy a loaf of bread, and needed a handbag full of money, the next day you needed a wheelbarrow full of money. The German people were on their knees. They had gone from a strong and wealthy society, to their knees in a few years, which is a good thing for all of us to remember. The people could not really understand why? So they had to have an entity to blame. The Jews copped it.
Twenty years later, they and the rest of the world were ready for another serve of war. We never learn it would seem! While ever man/womankind live in the dark places of ignorance, and allow politicians to rule our lives – we will always be like this. Some call it the human condition, but it is the political condition. Islam is a world wide politically motivated power for world domination. We have to speak up or shut up.
The reality is that Muslims walk the streets of Netherlands without fear, but it is Geert Wilders who has armed security, as he is in fear for his life in his own country.
Remember Britain’s war with the IRA? There’s another, much worse civil war coming to the islands when the islamists’ numbers vote them into government and the natives (finally) realize whats happened to their country.
At some level so is AIDS, hepatitis, cancer, car accidents, stoke ….. and like islam they are also NOT pleasant.
