Does Islam in fact have a murderous contempt for women and homosexuals? Certainly there are many Muslim clerics and rank-and-file believers who believe that it does, approving of death sentences for gays, the honor killing of women, and the like. But for non-Muslims to point out that such views have a basis within Islamic texts and teachings is Islamophobic. Apologies must be issued.
Politicians demand apology from Germanys biggest-selling newspaper for editorial comment piece criticising Islam and accusing it of murderous contempt for women and homosexuals, Daily Mail, July 28, 2014 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):
Germanys biggest-selling newspaper has faced calls to apologise for an editorial comment piece criticising Islam which has sparked debate and controversy in the country.
Nicolaus Fest, the vice editor in chief of the newspaper Bild am Sonntag, was criticised after accusing Islam of a murderous contempt for women and homosexuals in a comment piece yesterday.
Fest described the religion as a barrier to integration saying: I dont believe in God, but at the same time Christianity, Judaism or Buddhism dont bother me. Only Islam bothers me more and more.
The newspaper has now responded to criticism after politicians described the piece as racist, The Local has reported.
What race is Sharia oppression of women and gays again? I keep forgetting.
According to the website, the comment piece had been shared more than 9,700 times on social media by this morning, with critics including Volker Beck, a member of the Green political party, calling for the paper to apologise.
Last night, Bilds editor-in-chief Kai Diekmann wrote an editorial, which was posted online, saying there was an unshakeable dividing line between Islam as a world religion and the degrading ideology of Islamism.
He wrote: Thats why in Bild and Axel Springer [publications] there is no room for generalized, depreciating comments against Islam and the people who believe in Allah.
The comment piece was published in the wake of Germanys condemnation of anti-Semitic chants and threats heard at some of the protests against Israels conflict with Hamas in Gaza .
Yes, it does. Next question ?
How did Europe ever allow that disease (islam) to enter their nations? They are toast.
Fallout from WW2. They went so far insane against Jews and others that they now have to morally equalize everything.
The question is are the Germans as cowed by Muslims as US newspapers?
Pi$$ on Islam!
I predict the first sustained violence against the non-Muslim will begin in Spain. It has only been just over 600 years that the Moors were kicked out. I am sure they
believe it is time to retake that country.
This would be my apology: “Hey, you goat-f***ing Muzzie @$$holes, eat sh*t!”
Is that diplomatic enough? Don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.
Your apology is over there, in the pig pen.
WWII so decimated the populations of Europe that they were desperate for cheap labor to rebuild so they allowed virtually unrestrained immigration from Africa and the Mid East. The problem is that the Muslims never integrated into the European culture. They remained African and Mid East Muslims even to the 2nd and 3rd generations.
Except we’re doing it too.
I agree that it’s suicidal.
Be specific. They have feed bins and water too.
The muzzies have the honkies on the run all over the world. You women better start picking out some nice burkas.
You words of wisdom are needed here.
They went against Jews and got something 10,000x worse. I would have no problems living among Jews. I couldn’t live among muzzies .... they would kill me.
Well,you see, it’s where it’s already a little dirty, if you know what I mean.
What utter rubbish. Thirteen years since 9-11-01, and I am still waiting to learn something -- ANYTHING -- about Islam that is not completely disgusting.
They kill kids, women, men, Christians, Hindus, Muslims, heterosexuals, homosexuals, reporters, health workers, lovers, haters, or anything with a heart beat.
Ahh. the race card. I didn’t know Islam was a race.
Islam has brought nothing but mayhem murder and misery everywhere it has spread.
It all started in the late 1950’s when the Wirtschaftwunder (the magic of the European industrial expansion) took place and the white Euros invited Muslims to do the work so that they themselves could enjoy their long vacations and live high on the hog.
France invited the Algerians, Germany the Turks and Netherlands the Moroccans, etc.
Play with muzzie fire and expect to get burned.
No burkas please.
They’re just places to hide suicide vests.
OK, this should prove Islam is just like ObaMao's Christianity:
Its an ancient practice, secretly revived--young boys sold by families to entertain wealthy merchants and warlords. An undercover investigation into this illicit sex trade...
Bacheh-baazi (from Persian بچهبازی, meaning "pedophilia, pederasty"), also known as bacchá (from the Persian بچه, "child, kid") or bacha bi-reesh (بچه بیریش, "beardless boy"), is a slang term that is commonly used for sexual slavery and child prostitution in which prepubescent and adolescent boys are sold to wealthy or powerful men for entertainment and sexual activities. This business thrives in Afghanistan, where men keep them as status symbols. Some of the individuals involved report being forced into sex. The authorities are barely attempting to crack down on the practice but many doubt it would be effective since many of the men are powerful and well-armed former commanders.
Multiculturalism doesn’t work when you’re dealing with a bizarre and extremist religion like islam.
USUALLY one can reason it out and try to cool down by realizing the futility of rage at something that's been going on for a millenia, isn't going to be stopped today by anyone or anything and will continue until the end of time when GOD finally finishes ALL anger.
Unfortunately, for some people their very identity is wrapped up in something other that their family, friends, home and job.
To be so enthralled and riveted on events over which they have absolutely NO CONTROL must therefore leave people so terribly frustrated, irate, helpless, embittered and completely stonewalled that their ONLY recourse is to lash out as viciously as they can against those who don't share their views and who don't agree with as much ferocity as they have.
It's a real soul destroyer. My visits to Israel left me surprised because the Jews, Muslims and Christians over there HAVE to get along. They depend on each other for so much as there is not enough man power for the Israelis to do everything.
Also, the Jews, Muslims and Christians HAVE been dealing with each other for a long, long time, PREDATING Europe and America. For those here who detest the Palestinian Muslims, it has to be difficult because MOST people here haven't a clue what it's like over there. It would be a good thing for Americans to VISIT Israel and see for themselves what it's like. It's not difficult and it's not dangerous for Americans.
The Israeli army has things WELL IN HAND. They protect all Israelis, Christians and Muslims alike, from harm. I've never seen so many Uzis, rockets, tanks and soldiers in my life...not even in the five years I lived in Saudi Arabia.
It's a good thing for Christians to visit the Holy Land, travel in the "footsteps" of Jesus, see Jerusalem, Calvary, the Holy Sepulcher and all the famous historic site of the Bible. Tourists are as safe as they are in New York City. [Is that a bad example?]
That is for the liberal women. Conservative women and men will shoot them first.
Okay, Muslims: I am sorry you have a murderous contempt for women and homosexuals. I am also sorry that you have a murderous contempt for Jews, Christians, Hindus, and even some members of your own faith. I am sorry that the devil has such a hold on you that you convince young zealots —even children — that their blowing up themselves and a lot of innocent people is their ticket to heaven. And I am sorry that a lot of my fellow non-Muslims encourage your murderous contempt by not standing up and fighting you. Is that enough or an apology?
Hell, they even kill other Muslims. Hate is part of their religion.
“Last night, Bilds editor-in-chief Kai Diekmann wrote an editorial, which was posted online, saying there was an unshakeable dividing line between Islam as a world religion and the degrading ideology of Islamism.”
This begs the question: are those on one side of the dividing like “good Muslims”, and those on the other side “bad Muslims”? And if so, will the “good Muslims” specifically condemn the “bad Muslims” for being “bad Muslims”?
For until “good Muslims” call “bad Muslims” what they are, that is, “bad Muslims”, then the “good Muslims” suffer guilt by association.
When will the “good Muslims” condemn the ‘degrading ideology of Islamism’?
Islam isn’t a race. Honestly how stupid some people are.
Who’s on first?
NO and HECK NO!
In truth, the Muslims are LOSING this one and I speak with CONFIDENCE!
Please try to understand that people have had enough and backlash has started.
God Bless Israel!
The world is toast. The only thing that will prevent it from becoming “toast” is a nuclear holocaust that will turn it into REAL toast.
Islam is a “religion of Peace”? Why do we let them in our country during open war? Are we crazy? Our children are going to die and the blood is on our hands. Praise Jesus the Lord.

We do because we have our own share of ignorant and evil people.
The same question applies here, with the same probable outcome.
There is no place in the future for those who would
The blood is on the hands of liberal statists who
allow it in order to further their political ends.
