Judeo-Christo-Fascism Awareness Week Comes to American Campuses!
The American Muslim ^ | 10/21/2007 | Rabbi Arthur Waskow

Judeo-Christo-Fascism Awareness Week Comes to American Campuses!

by Rabbi Arthur Waskow

Did that title make the hair on the back of your neck bristle? Did it feel like a bigoted attack on Christianity and Judaism?

When the feature film sent out for use in this Week—which focused on the disgusting Christian-led war that killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and the disgusting Jewish-led killing of Muslim children by airplane bombng raids on Gaza -– also included interviews with a few peacenik Quakers, Methodists, and left-wing Jews, criticizing that war and those bombings, did you relax, feeling it was a balanced presentation of Judaism and Christianity?

NO??!! —Your guts, your kishkes, felt that practically all Christians and Jews were being set up as potential – indeed probable— bad guys? Could-be terrorists who – often manipulated by governments that Christians or Jews controlled—-- hated other religious communities but had not yet got around to buying the plastique for their bombs?

Self-loathing Rabbi is upset with David Horowitz's campaign.

I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't read it myself.

No, because that has been the program in academia for decades.

Hey, Rabbi! If you hate yourself so much, off yourself. But leave the rest of us in peace.

If there were people going around dressed up like the Knights Templar videotaping themselves lopping off the heads of Muslim hostages while yelling “Deus Vult! Deus Vult!” and proclaiming that the Pope will rule all the world, then I might feel the hair on the back of my neck stand up at the idea of a “Judeo-Christo-Fascism Awareness Week”. As it is I just scoff at the false comparison between the actions of Jews and Christians vs. the actions of Muslims around the world.

But when the death toll drops we get this from the lamestream media:

Here's what I wrote TAM at tameditor@aol.com:

Dear TAM:

I came to you website via a link in Free Republic on your article about "Judeo-Christo-Fascism". This is a crude attempt to answer the term "islamo-fascism". Islamo-fascism was coined by Algerian Muslims, who refered to the Al Qaeda style terrorists, who slaughtered hundreds of thousands of Algerians (Muslims). They recognized the fascism involved in the Islamic Totalitarianism advocated by the terrorists.

Then you move on to the really unattractive feature of Muslims that I've noticed over the past few years: a highly developed sense of victimization and willingness to blame others. Your website is simply full of this dishonesty.

I was curious as to your "condemnation" of terrorism. I was wondering if it was more of the same phony condemnation, that left loopholes big enough to fly an airliner into a building. Sadly, that is what I found:

FIQH COUNCIL OF NORTH AMERICA ISSUES FATWA AGAINST TERRORISM
Islam strictly condemns religious extremism and the use of violence against innocent lives
http://theamericanmuslim.org/tam.php/features/articles/fiqh_council_of_north_america_issues_fatwa_against_terrorism/

The key word here is "innocent". According to the terrorists and their apologists, no Israeli for example is an "innocent". Further, no American is innocent, because Americans pay taxes to the American government, which makes us guilty. And no infidel is an innocent life, because by definition, an infidel has rejected Allah's religion of Islam, which is a capital crime calling for the death penalty.

I also saw that you quoted CAIR, which is an unindicted co-conspirator, accused of providing material support to terrorists. Yup, I really believe that you "condemn" terrorism. And I bet your best definition of terrorism is when Infidels defend themselves against justified Jihad.

The sad fact is that Islamo-fascists, as in the case of Algeria, murder far more Muslims than they do Infidels. If you truly opposed terrorism, you would join with David Horowitz and promote awareness of Islamo-fascism, instead of trying to demonize the people, who oppose Islamic terrorism. Uh, btw, have you heard of Islamic Jihad? Is that name an example of Islamophobia? If not, why not? Of Islamic Jihad is the name of an Islamo-fascist terrorist group.

Muslims are turning entire non-Muslim world against them. And this isn't due to some irrational, invented, made up "Islamophobia". It comes about as the logical result of murderous attacks by Muslims on every infidel group in the book: Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, etc. This situation isn't going to change until Islam gives up Jihad and terrorism. TAM is fooling no one.

Regards,

Jabba

Arthur Wasko is a wacko. Then again the Left is quite happy to defend evil as long as its anti-American.

"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus

The Methodist weekly newspaper has frequent pro-Palestinian articles in which the Israeli positions are denigrated. Pure propaganda.

Good letter. Although they are probably gloating about the decision in the Holy Land Relief Foundation trial that was just announced.

Re: 9

Nice note. Calm, and compassionate in that you were trying to direct them towards some serious introspection. No vitriol used at all.
Doubt it'll be of much use, but nice try anyways.

Great line from the article you referred to illustrate the idea of victimhood: A common and sustained criticism of the U.S. government’s 14-year investigation of Holy Land and other foreign charities thought to be supporting overseas terrorism is that the investigations are politically motivated and driven by post-9/11 racial prejudice against Arabs.

Are there some Muslims who claim the authority of God to kill and destroy? Yes. Are there some Jews who claim this? Yes. And Christians? Yes. What do we do about this?

Name a Christian that claims "the authority of God to kill and destroy"!! Name one, you self-loathing pos.

Muslims have committed over 9805 terrorist attacks worldwide, just since 9/11. Throughout all of history, Muslim extremism has killed far more people than practically all other religions combinedl

*snort* Kids get THAT message everyday, in their regular classes, so there's no need for a special week of events to note it. The US and Israel are bad, bad countries, according to the liberal intelligentsia.

That doesn't change the fact that Jews and Christians are not going around the world blowing up innocent folks in the name of Yahweh or Jesus. There are, however, folks who ARE killing in the name of Allah, so it's good to be aware of exactly who is doing it, and WHY.

The universities should be having an Islamfacist month displaying their attrocities. They will not but then the liberals since the ‘30’s during the hayday of the Commies, have always been supporting the enemies of the USA.

Dhimmitude at its finest.

Sorry, rabbi, I know of no one dropping bombs on women and children while quoting Scripture. On the other hand, I do know of Moslem quoting the Koran on their way to kill women and children.

I know of no one singing praises to Jehovah or Jesus while cutting off someone’s head with a rusty knife. On the other hand, I do know of Moslems quoting the Koran and praying with glee while cutting off someone’s head with a rusty knife.

I know of no one using Scripture to call for the extermination of Moslems. On the other hand, I can read quotes from Moslem leaders quoting the Koran to commit genocide on the Jews.

And so forth. Speaking as a Jew myself, I would like to do more than shake my head in disbelief while reading the words of this rabbi. I’d like to scream in his face. I’d get red-faced with anger over this putz cavorting with people who would gladly kill him. There’s a term for guys like this: the self-loathing Jew. Good thing he’s not in the room right now with me - I might regret forgetting some invective in my anger at the man.

That is one reason there are more ex-Methodists than current Methodists. I’m one.

Thanks. If there are any people at The American Muslim, who really are interested in freedom, maybe, just maybe, this could make them stop and think for a minute. Just calling names causes people to close up and go on the defense. I suspect that anyone working at TAM has been thoroughly vetted and brain-washed.

You sir are ...... CORRECT. Here's a link to a YouTube video, which claims to video of a Taliban attack on an American HumVee. This video was recorded by the Jihadists. It looks like an As Sahab (Al Qaeda) production. I can't understand the lyrics to the background song, but you can quite clearly hear the perps repeatedly say Allahu Akbar after the explosion.

I've watched a bunch of videos by American soldiers fighting the Muj and I've yet to hear a Praise Jesus. Usually, what the soldiers say is unprintable on this family website. Let's just say that "Jihad that, Sucka!" pretty well sums it up.

The Revolutionary Communist Party is threatening the speakers, and trying to get the nationwide event shut down. So much for free speech and diversity.

“It is also CHRISTIAN HERITAGE WEEK in some states - evidently our Queen....Christine Gregoire - announced it for this week....but, I have not heard it elsewhere.....anyone else heard this?”

No I haven’t. To pacify my wife I watch the big three TV stations for the local news every night, but I missed that.

Besides green queen, upright and honest Queen “Chris” tends to upset me more than she does my wife and others around the house.

By the way, have you figured out yet that Greg o’ire rhymes with ‘haywire’? I did long ago, but I still watch the evening news with my wife. In return she vacates the TV room during Sunday football season afternoons.
