Posted on 09/27/2014 5:59:52 AM PDT by Kaslin
Yesterday at Vaughan Foods a former employee decapitated one person and was stabbing another before he was shot to death by the company C.O.O. who may have stopped a massacre. The very last line of the article reads, "The FBI is 'probing whether (the killer's) recent conversion to Islam had anything to do with the attack.'"
The first reaction most people probably secretly have to that is, "Of course it did! Muslims and beheading go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly, don't they?" Incidentally, that was also probably their second reaction, because beheadings are just something that seem to happen with surprising frequency in areas teeming with Muslims. Violence and terrorism also go hand-in-hand with Islam and if you can't figure that out from watching the news, you could learn it from reading a history book.
Moreover today, there are Muslims all over the world committing acts of terrorism along with raping, murdering, and enslaving their fellow human beings specifically for religious reasons. These aren't bad people doing bad things who happen to be Muslims; these are bad people doing bad things BECAUSE they are Muslims. Just ask them; they'll tell you.
Every religion has people who do repellent things in the name of God, but there are big differences in the degree of their offenses, their numbers, and how they're treated. Just to give you a couple of examples, the Westboro Baptist Church claims to be picketing funerals in the name of God. There have also been a handful of people who have killed abortion doctors because of their Christian beliefs. Is this the equivalent to what's going on with Islam? No, not even close. For one thing, these loons don't even represent 10,000th of a percent of Christians and for another, they're almost universally, harshly, publicly condemned by other Christians.
On the other hand, a significant number of Muslims support Sharia Law, forced conversions, slavery, rape, terrorism and religiously-inspired violence and murder. When pollsters haven't been too cowed by political correctness to ask, these backward attitudes have been borne out in poll numbers again and again. Just to give you one example, here are some numbers from the 2013 Pew Poll of the Muslim world.
* A majority of Muslims in several countries also support the death penalty for Muslims who convert away from Islam, including in Afghanistan (79 percent), Egypt (88 percent), Pakistan (75 percent), the Palestinian territories (62 percent), Jordan (83 percent) and Malaysia (58 percent).
* In contrast, in every other Arab country surveyed Iraq, the Palestinian territories, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia a majority of Muslims indicated they supported Shariah. Muslim majorities in these Arab countries, with the exception of Tunisia, also indicated they either supported stoning adulterers or killing apostates, or both.
* Forty percent of Muslims in the Palestinian territories and 39 percent of Muslims in Afghanistan said attacking civilian targets to defend Islam is often or sometimes justified. Further, 18 percent of Muslims in Afghanistan and the Palestinian territories said such actions are often justified.
* When a female commits the offense of pre-marital or extramarital sex, only 34 percent of Muslims in Jordan, 22 percent of Muslims in Iraq, 31 percent of Muslims in Egypt, 44 percent of Muslims in the Palestinian territories, 45 percent of Muslims in Lebanon and 24 percent of Muslims in Afghanistan said they think the girls family is ever justified to kill her to protect the familys honor.
But, you may say, Well, those are Muslims OVER THERE. Certainly, Muslims in Western countries wouldnt hold those kind of radical beliefs.
Dont bet on that.
* A new, widely-covered poll shows that a full 16% of French people have positive attitudes toward ISIS. That includes 27% of French between the ages of 18-24
* In 2006, a poll for the Sunday Telegraph found that 40% of British Muslims wanted shariah law in the United Kingdom, and that 20% backed the 7/7 bombers.
* 19 percent of American Muslims as of 2011 said they were either favorable toward Al Qaeda or didnt know.
Wherever there are Muslims in large numbers, there are usually going to be a significant number of them who believe Islam requires them to be violent, backward savages. Some of them may act on it while others just provide moral support, but theyre definitely going to be present. Thats not a statement of opinion; its a statement of fact backed up by history, experience, and poll numbers.
This is why people laugh when politicians like Barack Obama and, yes, Republicans like George W. Bush, call Islam a religion of peace.
That being said, many Muslims dont believe Islam requires them to be violent, mistreat women, hate Christians or generally behave like one of Genghis Khan's horde and its a huge mistake to forget that. Its an even worse mistake for Westerners to tell Muslims that if they understood their own religion, theyd want to murder us, which is something some misguided people have been doing over the last few years.
Most Muslims here in the United States, across the Western world and even in more moderate Islamic countries dont support ISIS or Al-Qaeda. They dont want Sharia law. Theyre not okay with honor killings, rape, slavery, burkas, female circumcision, forced conversion or beheadings.
Its wrong to write those people off as enemies or worse yet, to lump them in as part of Team ISIS or Team Al-Qaeda.
If anything, we need to encourage genuinely moderate Muslims and understand the difficulties they have to face. The ISIS-sympathizing fanatic who thinks he should be able to rape Christian women and who forces his wife to wear a burka isnt somewhere out there to them; hes sitting in the back row of their mosque on Sunday. Their wives say Hello in the grocery store. Their children see his weird, troublemaking kids on the playground. Isnt life hard enough already without having to worry that potentially dangerous Muhammad McMurder views them as a cancer, undermining the coming worldwide Islamic Caliphate from within? Thats a strong incentive to stay quiet.
So, when these Muslims do speak up, we need to encourage them.
Personally, Im glad to hear that Muslims against ISIS gathered in Michigan to pray for James Foley. Good for the Muslim leaders In Alabama who defied stereotypes with a strong message to ISIS over the murder of Steven Sotloff. I applaud the Muslims in Britain who started a #notinmyname campaign against ISIS.
Its a mistake to believe that Muslims are all bad people. In fact, most of them, particularly in the United States, are decent, patriotic citizens chasing the American dream just like everyone else. When decent people act like youd want and expect decent people to behave, you cant just always write it off as Taqiya and assume that its a trick.
Ironically, thats also part of the reason why we shouldnt keep making the mistake of referring to Islam as a religion of peace.
When we blanket over the fact that there are significant differences of opinion within Islam, it keeps us from being specific enough about the problem. If youre for ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Sharia, terrorism, genocide against Israel, murder, honor killings, forced conversions, violence against apostates or rape, youre not for peace, youre not a good guy, and youre certainly not a moderate. We cant empower real moderates in Islam if were not willing to draw a line in the sand about whats acceptable behavior and what isnt.
We also cant empower real moderates if we make people cynical about their very existence by calling Islam a religion of peace despite the fact that we all know that there are hundreds of millions of radical Islamists across the world who believe in spreading their primitive version of Islam by force. Mindlessly repeating the phrase, Islam is a religion of peace, isnt going to make it so. If Islam is ever going to effectively deal with radical jihadists from within, weve got to do our part by doing a better job of helping the moderates and ostracizing the radicals rather than painting them all with a one-size-fits-all brush.
Babylon's Covert War [ http://www.amazon.com/Babylons-Covert-War-J-White/dp/0615319874 ]
In Babylon's Covert War author J.H. White builds a provocative and compelling argument designed to strengthen the U.S.'s response to the global threat posed by Islam and radical Jihadists. Building on history, military strategy and tactics, Middle Eastern ideology, and practical anti-terrorism experience author White paints the stark picture of America's failures in defending against Islam's war, but also offers up an actionable plan to rectify past failures. There are those that have described the current war on terrorism as a new phenomenon, one that has emerged only in the last several decades. The truth, however, is that the United States, and its allies have been dealing with a multitude of radical forms of Islam ever since the founding of U.S. It could be argued that in all that time a cogent and effective strategy should have evolved to inform modern opponents of Holy Jihad, or minimally to aid U.S. efforts in dealing with the Iraq War. But sadly, this has not been the case. Babylon's Covert War not only lays bare the complex web of contributing factors to Islam's battle against the West, but also details the reasons why all wars are not the same and why Islam's war must be more fully understood by the U.S. if Jihadism is to be stopped. Written with grit and brutal honesty, Babylon's Covert War will disturb many, but it is a book that must be taken seriously by anyone concerned with world peace and the fate of free people.
What I find disturbing is the reluctance of most Muslims reluctance to speak out against the atrocities of their co-religionists. Some do,but not very many.
Subtract 1 “reluctance”.
It is somewhat understandable because by decapitating you they do bring you to some “state of peace”. Oh, those clever, fun-loving moozlums.
Define “most” that are moderate, patriotic, etc....
I am thinking about a “Peaceful Moderate Muslim Litmus Test.”
Ask them if they will condemn Mohammed for his mass-murder by beheading of 500-900 captured Jewish boys and men in AD 627, and for the subsequent mass rape and enslavement of the remaining Jewish girls and women.
Mohammed personally beheaded bound victims and raped a Jewish widow on the bloody ground, setting the example for all Muslims for all time.
Ask Muslims if they will condemn Mohammed for this. He could have shown mercy and banished the Jewish tribe as he did in other cases. Instead, he ordered the captive men and boys to be beheaded, so that he could divide up the booty (property and women) among his 3,000 jihadists, after he took 20% of the booty off the top.
Just ask Muslims if they will condemn Mohammed for this mass murder and mass rape atrocity. See what they say.
Moderate Muslims share responsibility for the savagery committed by their brothers in the Islamic faith. The most atrocious behavior is the silence of good Muslims. Those Muslims who by their silence become accomplices of Islamic terrorist should be deported and the terrorists imprisoned.
A Michigan professor sent an e-mail telling Muslim students to leave the country.
The story begins at Michigan State University with a mechanical engineering professor named Indred Wichman.
Wichman sent an e-mail to the Muslim Students Association.
The e-mail was in response to the students protest of the Danish cartoons that portrayed the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist.
The group had complained the cartoons were hate speech.
In his e-mail Professor Wichman said the following:
Dear Muslim Association,
As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest your protest.
I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey), burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called whores in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland, and the rioting and looting in Paris France.
This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many of my colleagues. I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Muslims to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile protests.
If you do not like the values of the West - see the First Amendment - you are free to leave. I hope for Gods sake that most of you choose that option.
Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans.
I. S. Wichman
Professor of Mechanical Engineering
I, for one, am getting sick to death of hearing this, when all my sense tell me otherwise. Where are the quiet ones? Do they ‘secretly support’ this, like the extroverted ones do? Do we really want to count on them to set things straight? When might that be?
Spare me this tripe.
These would be cultural Mohammedans, just as there are cultural Jews and Christians, i.e., not practicing.
91 Times the Koran commands Mohammedans to imitate Mohammed in every way.
The killer is simply a practicing Mohammedan.
**Islam Is A Religion of Peace AND a Religion of DECAPITATIONS**
Islam is a religion of pieces.
This article is a disgusting soft peddling of the truth that condemns each of the followers of Islam to perpetual slavery.
The Misunderstander of Islam was “shot to death”? Did he die during the night? He was alive on Friday.
That's horse puckey, because he goes on to extol the virtues of the supposedly existent moderate Muslim world.
The reason it's easy to polarize a Muslim is because their political movement masquerading as a religion has a set of writings that encourage violence.
The so-called moderate muslim can only be viewed as a poor reader lacking comprehension skills.
Once they’ve decapitated or enslaved all who disagree, and the rest are cowering in submission-it IS peaceful. The peace of death. ISLAM IS A DISEASE-we must eliminate it as we have so many others. There is no ‘good’ Islam, as there is no ‘good’ cancer.
A Muslim woman in a Bavarian Dirndl? (Dress) Not likely
“The so-called moderate muslim can only be viewed as a poor reader lacking comprehension skills.”
Yes. A back sliding muslim...
