Jihad in Southern Thailand Tarnishes Islam

Some people might get the wrong impression and connect the killing of 4000 Buddhists and the bombing of schools, temples, police and army units with the tiny minority of excremists who keep getting  their religion all wrong.

“Unrest”  (Jihad Against Buddhists) in southern provinces tarnishes Islam nothing to do with the Religion of Peace.

Yala Islamic Affairs Council president Ismael Abd Latif Haree said those who had caused unrest in the south had tarnished the image of Islam by linking their struggles with the religion.—More unrest and tarnished images at New Straits Times  (thanks to Mullah)

There is no compulsion in religion:

Malaysian temple condemned, temple staff and devotees given 15 minutes to leave

The land was originally reserved for place of worship… but somehow along the way the status of the land was changed to a Muslim place of worship… it can’t be because the land is beside a sewerage treatment plant. I don’t think Muslims would want a surau or a mosque there.

At least this story, unlike most stories of Islamic supremacy in Malaysia, has a happy ending — the temple in question was not completely destroyed. Every week seems to bring news of another church or temple somewhere in Malaysia demolished on the flimsiest of pretexts. For this near demolition of yet another Hindu temple, there seems to be no pretext whatsoever. Muslim officials seem to have just showed up, ordered everyone out of the temple, and promptly proceeded to start destroying it before being stopped. If history is any guide, the Muslims with sledgehammers and bulldozers won’t be gone for long. “Hindu temple saved in nick of time,” B Nantha Kumar, Free Malaysia Today (FMT), 20 June 2012:

Timely intervention of minister stopped DBKL officers from tearing down the place of worship.

KUALA LUMPUR: A temple, which was in the midst of demolition by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), was saved in Kepong today, after timely intervention of Federal Territory and Urban Wellbeing Minister Raja Nong Chik Zainal Abidin. (Malaysian temple condemned)

One thing you can say about Obama: he is consistent. Consistently on the side of Islamic supremacists.

 “DOJ Secretly Drops Terrorism Charges In Taliban Case,” from Judicial Watch, June 19 (thanks to Pamela Geller)

Still wondering which side he’s on?   Obama’s actions have been consistent: he has always acted in the interests of Islamic supremacists, from his refusal to aid the Iranian demonstrators in 2009 to his warm support for the Egyptian and Libyan demonstrators in 2011, to his Justice Department’s support for Muslims in the U.S. who sue to force American businesses and educational institutions to change the way they operate in order to accommodate Muslim demands. But…but…he killed bin Laden and al-Awlaki, you say? Sure — it appears that he opposes Islamization and the spread of Sharia when it proceeds by violence, but welcomes it when it proceeds peacefully.
