The young men who go to fight the global jihad are not going in spite of the teachings of certain religious leaders, but because of them.

“We don’t make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians, innocents and non-innocents. Only between Muslims and unbelievers! And the life of an unbeliever has no value. It has no sanctity!.”--Source: Reuters 4/18/2004
DOUGLAS MURRAY IS BRILLIANT AND SHMULEY BOTEACH IS AN ARROGANT AND FOOLISH JEW WHO SHOULD KNOW BETTER –
“We are so intent upon avoiding the problem of our time, radical Islam, that in one scenario we are willing to ignore the people who call for violence and murder, and on the other hand pretend that those who have never called for violence or murder have actually been calling for it all along. If any Muslim anywhere is attacked, the Western media is eager to attribute the fault to anybody who has ever analysed or even noticed radical Islam. They blame the person who has noticed the fire rather than tackling the fire that is being pointed to.”
“Yet when that same fire is burning, when Christians, Jews, other Muslims, secularists and others are targeted around the world by Islamists, we remain intent on hoping that this urge has nothing to do with any of the texts or books or preachings or encouragements in the milieu from which the perpetrators come. And all this in spite of the circumstance that it is we in the West who are often the ones financing and legitimizing these people, and sometimes — as with the Palestinian Authority — even handing them the funds to target us with.”
“The willful effort to ignore what is in front of our eyes, to cast blame where there is none and ignore it where there is, are not demonstrations of entirely wholesome societies. Rather, they are examples of societies suffering through a sickness. AndÂ if we cannot see our way through this, then it is this sickness that may yet prove to be the one historians in the future will recognize to have been terminal.”
Contrast his lucid, clear prose with theÂ absolutely disgusting tripeÂ written by “Rabbi” Shmuley Boteach, spiritual minister to the late Michael Jackson-who had a prediliction for hosting little boys at “sleepover” parties.
“Imams must condemn the murders”.
Is this guy for real?
It is breathtakingly arrogant of Mr. Boteach to suggest that Jews owe a debt to Islam. And it’s foolish and dangerous and stupid of him to write that imams must condemn the murders. The incitement to murder comes from within the sacred texts, and within the mosques and from the sermons of the imams.
Perhaps the most ignorant and evil statement in his stupid essay is this:
“Hamas’ values are an utter disgrace to the principles of Islam.”
Really? So we should listen to Michael Jackson’s “Rabbi” teach us about Hamas? We should listen to his opinion of Hamas rather than the Hamas charter itself? Rather than the Hamas jihadists who actually spell out quite clearly what their motivation is?
When Hamas representatives say that they want to kill the Jews, slaughter the infidels and that they are motivated by Islam-we should ignore that and listen to the good Rabbi?
This ignoramus has clearly never read theÂ Hamas CharterÂ or the Koran.
It is the height of arrogance and stupidity to assume that he knows better than Hamas about the intentions of Hamas. And what principles does he refer to?
A pathetic call for condemnation probably makes Mr. Boteach feel better about himself. After all, he condemned Baruch Goldstein! What a pillar of moral integrity is he!
Unfortunately for the Jewish people, in this article, he reveals himself as naive at best and dangerously foolish at worst.
So, dear reader, ho are you going to believe?
Mr. Boteach on Hamas, or your own lying eyes?
Shame on this pathetic excuse of a Jewish “leader”.
UPDATE:Â WITH MARK STEYN
This outstanding piece by Mark Steyn “Hath Not A Jew Eyes?” is appropriate for this post.Â
The comments from Steyn about Abe Foxman are equally applicable to Boteach.
Just print these three paragraphs below. I have made it easy for you.
Islam has not changed in 1,400 years. It is the most effective organized crime syndicate of all time. It wants everyone converted, paying the jizyah or dead. Mohammed in the Hadiths, Sira and Sura repeats this over and over. The Muslim world has been and always will be at war with the rest of the world.
Islam is the world’s fringe group. All of it forever and ever. Any other take on this is wishful thinking or whistling past the graveyard. Perhaps few people can tell the truth for various reasons, but I just did and I don’t care who takes offense.
We defeat this disease of a ‘religion’ or it defeats us. The left in all Western countries sees Muslims in 2 ways: 1) A constituency group that votes and 2) an enemy of Western civilization just as they are. So, we now have two enemies and not one to worry about. That makes for very, very bad odds for Western civilization, the rule of law, everything we hold dear as well as Christianity and all other religions.
