Skip to comments.Islamists, "Merry Christmas . . . Now Die!"

Ayatollah Khomeini once observed that there is no humor in Islam. Well, perhaps there is no intentional humor in Islam. However, the fact is that each of our religions probably has an ounce of human unintended humor to mix with the divine aspects. My Baptist friends joke that Baptists are the ones who yell "sinner!" at other Baptists next to them in the checkout line at the liquor store. Lutherans joke about the church potlucks laden with mayonnaise-filled recipes. Jewish friends joke that a room with four Jews also contains five opinions.
What of Islam? Is there a faith on Earth that displays a greater amount of unintended humor? Their religion, we were told by President George W. Bush, means "peace". In fact the word derives from the Hebrew word for peace. Yet, it is the only religion I am aware of wherein a sizable minority support murder and mayhem of anyone not their faith. Or murder of anyone their faith, but in another sect. Oh, and anyone in their faith, and their sect who dishonors the family is also fair game for murder. Funny, huh? Not vaudeville, but more sardonic humor.
Christmas of 2010 saw a profusion of acts of intolerance, none peaceful, and all from Islamists. In the Philippines, Iraq and Egypt, innocent Christians were slaughtered for their faith. Churches were targeted by suicide bombers who were taught that their faith offered virgins in heaven for blood on earth. Even in Bethlehem, Christians under Palestinian Authority rule scaled back Christmas so as to not offend Muslims. In the Netherlands, Sweden and Portland, Oregon, good police work prevented more innocent Christians from being slaughtered. If Christians are not safe in Northern Europe or the Pacific Northwest, then where exactly are they safe?

Peace through submission and dhimmitude.
Brutal and brilliant.
If the majority of muslims are as ‘peaceful’ as they say they are, they would be loudly protesting the murder and mayhem of their so-called ‘minority’ every single day.
Cue the crickets.
Every day on my favorite Christian radio station, I hear reports of Sunni versus Shiite muslim murders.
In the same countries where muslims kill Christians just about every day, they’re also quite content to take out ‘their own’ who aren’t doctrinally “identical”.
A random, impartial observer might justifiably and logically conclude that they are perhaps just natural born killers.
The religious component is a beard for all the other components.
Thus, IMHO, comparing it to legitimate religions is a false premise.
And from the press and the political leadership ((crickets))
They should eliminate each other.
The word “islam” does NOT come from the Hebrew word for peace, it comes from the Arabic word for “submission”. “Shalom” and “islam” are no closer linguistically than “mohammed” and “ham sandwich”.
I’m cool with that.
The Christians mention it as a part of their “religious persecution by Muslims” updates.
I suppose, bless their-more-tolerant-and-Christ-like-hearts-than-mine, they don’t want to see anybody killed for their “faith”, even if it is absolute apostasy.
They’re better folks than I am, fer sure.
I look at it the same way as I do drug dealers killing each other.
