The wicked flee when no one pursues them, but the Righteous are bold as a lionProv 28:1
Islam is an extremely sensitive religion. The Ummah cannot stand anything that even remotely smacks of criticism. It flies into a rage when cartoons are printed mocking their prophet. People have been killed because of false rumors spread about prison guards handling Korans insensitively. The West is lectured constantly about the need to be sensitive, in spite of the fact that Western societies have bent over backwards to show tolerance and sensitivity to our psychologically fragile Muslim guests.
Why the extreme touchiness? I have a couple of possible theories;
1) Because of a cognitive dissonance. Muslims know deep in their hearts they have a religion that they really ought to be ashamed of. Muhammed was certainly someone NOT to emulate, and even though the religion does desensatize the conscience, Muslims are still human beings, with a God given sense of right and wrong.
2) Because it works. The more Islam demands, the more our craven leaders defer. It would shock us had we been given a snapshot of how much ground Islam has gained in the west since 9-11. Ramadan in the White House, foot baths in airports, special meal breaks for meat packing Somalis in the Midwest the list goes on and on of the accommodations readily accepted by Muslims, who perhaps cant believe their good fortune at coming into the west in a time of multicultural confusion and western self loathing.
3) I think it is also a strategy to constantly keep the civilized world on the defensive, demanding that we assuage their outrage. Muslim sensitivity is useful, it detracts from the real issues. Muslims, after the Fort Hood massacre, didnt have to re-examine the tenets of their murderous religion, they immediately went on the offensive, warning us not to be IslamoPhobic and feigning fear of the so called Back Lash which has never, ever materialized.
But the sensitivity will not go the other way. The latest evidence for that is the proposed thirteen story mosque, which will be erected near ground zero, and scheduled to be dedicated on 9-11 .(Coincidence?) .To the families and the nation that was attacked on 9-11 by Islamic terrorists, no sensitivity whatever is shown.
Remember that the mindset of Islamic terrorism is symbolic. Mosques are usually constructed over former churches or other religious sites. Dates too are very important, always chosen with symbolic care. Shame and humiliation are also hugely important in the psychology of Islam. The battle cry Alla Akbar does not mean as many suppose ,Allah is great, but Allah is greater. Islam is a religion of comparison. It is really important to these tiny people,that a Minaret be raised on the highest elevation of an infidel city, as a sign of conquest.
The only consolation I offer is that the real God knows and sees, a careful reading of the prophets of the Bible will show that Islam is only being fattened up for the coming judgment on her. Here are a series of articles I wrote to verify this:
The Soon Coming Fate of Israels Near Neighbors
Why Do They Make Such A Tumult?
What The Answer Will Look Like
The day hastens when Islam will be wiped off the face of the earth.
You are so right in what you say, but it goes much, much further...
Islam is a “religion” based on the hatred and envy of a bastard son; Mohammed was a perverted and despicable human being with a taste for young girls and a willingness to let older women support him; he stole the basics of his “religion” from the other religions of his time, even paganism. He was a liar and his “religion” is a lie. I am an American and as such, will tolerate all others’ religions. That does not mean I will respect some of them. Islam is one that I do not. I have never seen a “religion” cause so much pain and injury to so many. Even my own Catholism hasn’t done this much damage.
Islam has been spread at the point of a sword (or gun, or bomb). To the best of my knowledge, the only place it has been accepted through preaching is in American prisons and some American communities where that hatred and envy flourish. The common accepted ideas about the Crusades are a flat-out lie; the common accepted idea about the “palestinians” is a lie- to say you are from the palestine is the same thing as saying you live in the area of the Grand Canyon. It was never a sovereign state. The “palestinian’s” claims-dating from the 60s- seem to have more weight than the Jewish claims which are 2000 years old.
The “sensitivity” of the western left has not one thing to do with “tolerance”. This is a concept about which they are clueless- like compassion and integrity. It IS about keeping the masses divided, and in this, Islam suits their purpose to a tee. Any one who supports these evil people, including the islamofascists here and abroad, makes a desperately stupid mistake. They will not be treated any differently than the rest of us. Perhaps worse. The left hates religion almost as much as it hates God. Islam is no different- just useful.
