“En religions omdømme er på spil”

Selv amerikanske bank- og forretningsfolk er begyndt at fatte virkeligheden.

Glimrende ‘leder’ fra redaktøren af “Investor’s Business Daily” (note: CAIR er den amerikanske udgave af vort “Islamisk Trossamfund”)

Islamofascism: Just when you thought Islam’s skin couldn’t get any thinner, angry Muslims from Khartoum to London want to execute a British teacher over a blasphemous teddy bear.

Our Muslim community is not calling for her head, but neither is any major Muslim leader rushing to her defense. Such indifference only feeds negative stereotypes and suspicions.

Is it any wonder almost half of Americans believe Islam is more likely than other religions to encourage violence against nonbelievers?

Sudan jailed the British teacher for 15 days for allowing her students to name a teddy bear Muhammed. But that’s not enough for Muslim mobs.

Thousands of Sudanese brandishing machetes and clubs demanded the woman’s execution. “Kill her, kill her,” one large group chanted as they piled out of a mosque.

British Muslims also want Gillian Gibbons punished more severely, according to the BBC. She avoided the more serious punishment of 40 lashes only after the British embassy pleaded for mercy.

This comes just weeks after a Saudi court sentenced a rape victim to 200 lashes plus six months in jail.

Washington, in typical understatement concerning such Islamic outrages, called the bear jihad an “overreaction.” But it seems Muslims always overreact to perceived slights, whether it’s rioting over cartoons of Muhammed, beauty pageants or mishandled copies of the Quran.

Is violence integral to Islam? It’s a valid question. When the pope raised it, Muslims proved him wrong by threatening to cut off his head. Message: Don’t call us intolerant or we’ll kill you.

If this sounds “Islamophobic,” a favorite retort of the Muslim-rights group CAIR, straighten us out. We looked for a condemnation of the Sudanese troglodytes on its Web site and came up short.

We did, however, find “Action Alerts” calling on Muslims to boycott radio host Michael Savage for intolerance. Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani and the Washington Times were also singled out for attack.

Meanwhile, CAIR is hosting a panel discussion at the National Press Club on “Islamophobia and the Political Cartoon.” Apparently CAIR, like other Muslim groups, condones violent reactions to free speech.

CAIR encourages Muslims in America to improve the coverage of Islam in the media. It says they should break the stereotype of Muslims as terrorists, and that of Islam as “archaic, barbaric, irrational” and a “religion of violence.”

Well, what are you waiting for? Condemn the Islamic court’s punishment of an innocent teacher. Certainly CAIR doesn’t agree that naming a toy animal after the Muslim prophet is a crime just because it could be considered by the most extremist hard-liner to be an insult. Or does it?

The vast majority of Americans would change their negative view of Islam if Muslims would strongly condemn such extremism. But for some reason, they won’t do it.

Until they do, they can’t complain about Islamophobia.

  1. Det ærgrer mig gang på gang at se især afrikanere fare op for islams skyld. Hvorfor er der så mange nordafrikanere som bekender sig til en racistisk religion, og en kultur der absolut ikke anerkender sorte som værende noget værd.

    Burde stolte afrikanere ikke finde deres gamle rødder, og glæde sig over den mangeartede og rige kultur der eksisterer i Afrika?
