Just a few words of advice to my readers, if you haven't visited the blog Dr. Sanity you're missing a great read. Yesterday's article on Islam and our government's appeasement of that bankrupt cult, is especially most excellent.
Here are a few tidbits but go here to get the full meal:
Americans apparently are not permitted, even in our supposedly free society, to say anything nasty about Islam, Mohammed or Allah.
On the other hand, it goes without saying that Christianity, Jesus and God are fair game for attack.
Americans are not permitted to question how peaceful Islam is--even when hordes of its adherents appear to believe that it is not only "OK" to kill innocents in the name of their vicious god, it is a moral imperative to do so.
And, Americans, at least, no longer have to wait for CAIR or other "peaceful" Muslim advocacy groups (it's in quotes because the juxtaposition of "peaceful" and "Muslim" is oxymoronic) to file the appropriate complaint with the appropriate politically correct organization in the oh so politically correct Obama administration--We have a President and a Justice Department who will do it for them!
The truth is that "Islamophobia" is not a phobia at all-- it is a completely rational fear of an insane and irrational movement that threatens to swallow the world. Being afraid of the "religion of peace" after the innumerable acts of violence, terror and depravity committed in the name of its god across the globe is not an exaggerated response to its savagery; it is not at all inexplicable; and most certainly it is not illogical in the slightest.
Being afraid of ruthless moral savages who fanatically believe in Islam as they continually denounce and limit freedom of speech and thought; as well as spit on all the key values of Western civilization, is far from a phobia--rather, it is a natural response to the sad reality of Islam as it is practiced in much of the Middle East and around the world.
If Islam is "under siege" or becomes so, its practitioners have only themselves to blame. I am sure that I am among millions and millions of those who didn't give a single thought to Islam or about Mohammed prior to the last 11 years. I rather liked my life being Islam-free, Mohammed-free and mostly Allah-free.
But now that they have forced me to think about them, I can see that "live and let live is not one of their beliefs; rather, it is "submit or die."
I do not intend to do either.
Those who deny the reality of the threat of Islam to freedom and civilization; or pretend that it doesn't exist are not only reluctant to admit that the wave of terror and irrational hatred sweeping the world is specifically associated with the religion of Islam; always seem to immediately blame the victims of the terror and the objects of the irrational hatred as the ones responsible for its existence.
Anyone who by now has not realized that most Muslims, by reason of their deafening silence alone, have given carte blanche to the fanatics in their midst, is either completely out of touch with reality, or living on another planet (e.g., planet Obama).
So, let me say for the record that I utterly reject being labeled as "Islamophobic". Rather, I have a healthy, rational fear of a religion that aggressively seeks either my submission or death and will fight with every means at my disposal to stop the spread of their toxic ideology.
An important point raised is that most Muslims have given carte blanche to the fanatics. This is why moderate Muslims are a greater threat to western civilization than Islamic terrorists: we actively seek out and destroy the terrorists, but we have no weapon against moderate Muslims, a point I made in my article Writing is also a bomb: The Moderate Muslim Threat: that while moderate Muslims do not blow up school buses, when offended they demand that the offense be removed or destroyed.
We see this in the demonstrations in the Muslim world against a video that mocks the alleged prophet Mohammed. Those demanding that America limit free speech (limit speech critical of Islam) are not Muslim terrorists but rather regular, everyday, ordinary Muslims. Muslims who, before they went berserk, we called moderate Muslims.
Imagine if we had millions more Muslims in this country, they would be a formidable constituency against free speech, aside from the fact that their communities are petri dishes for the spread of radical Islam.
We face a coming World War with the Islamic world. We make a great mistake in allowing immigrants into our country who will be sympathizing with our enemy.
