Muslims have been waging war upon infidels since the inception of Islam 1400 years ago. They're not inclined to abandon the dictates of their prophet, that Islam shall reign supreme upon the earth.
The Left has ONE thing right: Muslims don't just hate us for who we are, they hate us for our policies. Why? Because our policies are an impediment to their aspirations of destroying Israel and achieving global hegemony. In short, their hatred is a badge of honor for us....and proof positive that we're doing something right. Tragically, very few seem to get it.
For the record, I'm opposed to Muslim immigration, for sociological and security reasons, not because Muslims are "sub-human".
I've noticed a similar dynamic here at JW. I occasionally defend working in concert with moderate Muslims abroad (I reject any assertion that there is a moderate Islam and I oppose Muslim immigration at home). Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan are fighting and dying alongside US troops. Muslims in Algeria and elsewhere are fighting and dying trying to stem the spread of Sharia. I think they deserve our support.
Many here have disagreed with me. That's fine. There are legitimate arguments on both sides. But that 83p rating is a badge of honor as far as I'm concerned, and proof that I'm being true to myself and offering more than just angry harangues to the echo chamber about the evils of Islam....(though I do occasionally resort to such a harangue).
Here, I've denounced a poster for dehumanizing Muslims by calling them "sub-human". Yet, apparently, it is ME who is being controversial.
Do you think for one minute I'm going to defend the dehumanization of Jews that is promulgated in the Quran? It is despicable! But apparently, your answer is to imitate the Islamic ethos and reciprocate its hatred and bigotry.
JW is providing an indispensable service to mankind, chronicling the daily jihad that is wreaking so much havoc in the world. I fear that on the day the UN gains control of the internet, this web-site will disappear. Until that day, I want to see it flourish...and comments like the one above are not only unethical, they are a tactical mistake, giving ammunition to those who want to discredit this great institution by branding it a hate site.
I like to think that our culture in the West is distinguishable from that of Islam by our ethics and our basic humanity. But I guess that doesn't apply to everybody.
Kudos for hitting on what I believe to be the foundation for all human morality...."the dignity and worth of the individual." Without it, we're just cattle.
Your appropriation of such language can only serve to discredit this web-site and help to validate the erroneous accusations of Muslims and their apologists that JW is a hate-site. One can be brutally honest about Islam as a belief system without de-humanizing Muslims.
Like so many other Muslim apologists trying to present an Islam sanitized for Western sensibilities, Professor Bassiouni's inaccuracies cannot be attributed to ignorance...not a man of his educational accomplishments. The only alternative is that he is liar.
We should be attempting to shame Muslims into not only a repudiation of such behavior, but into some corresponding introspection regarding from where it emanates. To do so would be planting the seeds of future cases of apostasy.
