Something is Wrong
The American Spectator ^ | 09/24/2012 | Ben Stein

Posted on 09/25/2012 5:03:26 AM PDT by Lacey

Have you noticed that in the past few years, and especially in the past few weeks since the murder of the Ambassador and his guards and colleague in Benghazi (a city that Erwin Rommel loved and whose inhabitants he praised), whenever the New York Times refers to Mohammed, they always call him, without quotation marks, The Prophet Mohammed, as if everyone with any sense understands that OF COURSE Mohammed is The One True Prophet and that it's just understood that Mohammed is The Prophet.

Mohamed was not a prophet. No evidence exists that he was sent by any higher being. I will never refer to him as the prophet.

I wish we had Rommel on our side today.

He’d teach these flea-bitten camel traders a thing or two.

I always thought they called him The Prophet Muhammed to distinguish him from all the other violent thugs named Muhammed.

...the New York Times refers to Mohammed, they always call him, without quotation marks, The Prophet Mohammed."

More immportantly, it is the way our Mohammedan-raised President refer to Mo. Has Hillary and/or State Dept also incorporated this phrase into their diplomatic lexicon?

“I always thought they called him The Prophet Muhammed to distinguish him from all the other violent thugs named Muhammed.”

That’s the reason they give, yes. But it’s really unnecessary as it is understood in this circumstance.

You know what else is wrong? For the last month, the television no longer censors the sinful phrase, “G damn, G damnit”. It was always taken out of movies - not anymore!

I noticed that. Its a a full-on, drag-out attack on morality. The gay blitz on chick-fil-a that ended in disaster, the assault on Conscience-Clause rights, the banning of Christian-themed decorations in schools (lastest one in Texas, I believe), "under God" taken out of the pledge of allegiance in schools (latest in New Hampshire), all that fuss about "Merry Christmas" seemed worse this year, and yet you never hear ramadam referred to as 'holiday month' or 'no eating month,' and this g-dam thing as well.

They're pulling out all the stops.

I heard yesterday that some town in Indiana or Illinois is now making residents pay for a permit to display their Christmas decorations. A Christmas tax! There is definitely a attempt to move us away from Christianity and toward Islam.

Folks never seem to get their history correct when it comes to the Crusades.

They forget that Islam attacked Christianity and Judaism for 400 years, BEFORE the Crusades ever began to retaliate!

I’ve heard the MSM cite the Crusades as the justification for Islamic Terrorism.

Sadly, you are probably correct.

I never capitalize the pervert’s name nor will I call that cult “islam”; it is “mohammedism” to me.

Not only is it the Prophet Mohammad, Obama always refers to the Koran as the Holy Koran. I’ve never heard him refer to the Bible as the Holy Bible. For that matter, I seldom here the MSM refer to the Bible as the Holy Bible.

For many, it's likely less about 'forgetting' than about ignoring.

Then again, given the state of public education the past 30yrs . . .


Ya know how the communist maggots are always goin' on about that insipid Lennon song 'Imagine' ?

My version is: 'Imagine' what an immeasurably better world we'd live in today if the Crusades HAD been a complete success ? !

Its become quite clear that liberals are trying to replace the first amendment with the "free speech unless some minority group/atheist pac/3rd world rioter is offended" amendment. And they've been successful. They tell people "its to keep you safe," and they fall right in line.

Why don't the sheeple remember that he who is "willing to sacrifice liberty fo security deserves neither?" Honestly, I'm shocked again and again when I see predictions of the founding fathers coming to pass. They were truly guided by God, and yet nobody, none of these dull, mindless, sitcom watching ninnies have the slightest interest in the words of our founders! Its enough to make me throw up my hands in exasperation.

I never capitalize any word closely associated with islam. allah, mohammad, muslim, koran, and certainly the word prophet are words I NEVER capitalize and I urge others to do likewise. I think the west needs to push back at the islamic world’s neurotic need for respect it never has earned.

Earn my respect by accomplishing something positive. Receive tolerance by demonstrating tolerance. Get treated as an equal by treating others as equals. Teach a squirrel to sing Pagliacci.

I added the last one so muslims would have something to strive for that might happen versus the others I listed.

We are not, as journalists, supposed to be labeling anyone as "The" Prophet. But somehow, it's happening. The MSM has become a voice for Islam.

I don't think it's a mystery. Members of the lap dog media hear Obama constantly refer to "the prophet Mohammed" and "the holy Koran", so it's only natural that many of them would follow his lead.

A little voice inside tells me a few things:
1. The Western Elites are scared to death of a clash of civilizations.
2. There are things they admire about Islam. #1 of which is how easily controlled and manipulated its followers are (by Imams).
3. I strongly suspect that they want us ALL to eventually convert to Islam. This has the advantage of defusing a “clash” and also making the Sheeple easier to control. It would also explain Liberals go nuts when any other religion is even mentioned in school. Except Islam. Islam must be praised and celebrated. And in the MSM, Islam is always treated reverently. Evangelical Christians are portrayed as stupid. Devout Muslims are portrayed as wise.

You need to connect the dots. Its not happening by accident.

I understand your sentiment, but Jesus isn’t one of the most common names in the world and mohammed (with all of its spellings) is. So, the distinction or qualifier is actually helpful in instances.
The use of it in this Benghazi story when talking about the video made, is totally unnecesary.

I love how the elites shiver when they think of the incredibly frightening idea of a big war breaking out between the U.S. and muslim nations.

Oh, wait, 2 have been going on for a decade.

Wait... they could have both been over and have everybody back home in 6 months and the celebrations would have been over.

Ok, here’s my proposed policy for establishing peace in the mideast: utterly destroy the muslim nations except for their oil fields. Then confiscate all their oil as the spoils of war, take as much as we want for ourselves and sell the extra to other countries.

Wow, in less than four years (one term in office), we’d have hundreds of billions rolling in from that oil business !

And no mideast militaries to threaten anyone.

Then just deport mooslims out of America and don’t let any back in, and ... all fixed.
