UPDATE ON THE RELIGION OF PEACE. An interesting article by Keith B. Richburg appeared in the Washington Post yesterday concerning the problems in The Netherlands with Islamic immigrants. You might remember the execution in November of Theo van Gogh by Muslims in Amsterdam. Then there was the discovery of an Islamic extremist cell. The cell had a death list.
That death list included Dutch politician, Geert Wilders. What did Wilders do to get on the Death List? He insulted Muslims in the Netherlands.
Wilders has said "Islam and democracy are fully incompatible. They will never be compatible -- not today, and not in a million years." The Death List proves him right.
Wilders also gets direct death threats. He gets them by e-mail, on Internet chat sites, and even video clips playing Arabic music punctuated with gunfire and showing his picture.
In a democracy, as everyone but Muslims know, we argue, we vote, we might even do some name calling, then we all go home to supper. We do not kill each other, even if we really disagree vehemently. If we disagree vehemently, we might even start a blog to call them names. (Like Ketchup Kerry, for example)
But, Wilders Muslim opponents, after claiming to be insulted by this comments that they are un-democratic, said "He is an enemy of Islam and he should be beheaded. Behead him, and you will earn a place in paradise." This was posted on the Internet.
Others in The Netherlands have received threats according to the article, including the mayor of Amsterdam, a Somali-born member of parliament who collaborated with van Gogh on a controversial film about Islam's treatment of women, and a Moroccan-born alderman in Amsterdam who has “talked about tolerance and the need for Muslims to adapt to the Dutch way of life.”
Wilders is not backing down. He said "We are in an undeclared war. These people are motivated by one thing: to kill everything that we stand for." He states that the concept of multiculturalism is a failure in the Netherlands. I agree. I have often said, you cannot have multiculturalism with a culture that wants to eradicate you, take over your country, and turn it back to the 6th century. Even John Kerry could not do that with the help of the French. It would be like Picard preaching multiculturalism to the Borg. Actually, it would be a lot like that, except Muslims don't have those cool mechanical arms.
Other countries likewise have problems. Germany recently conducted raids, arresting several suspected of “financially supporting radical Islamic activities abroad by collecting donations and procuring further money". Two of the suspects trained in Afghanistan terrorist camps.
In Ulm, a city on the Danube, a mosque in an old factory draws Islamic extremists from all over Germany. It is called The Multicultural House, which must be an expression of Muslim Exremists' humor.
The mosque is know to have contacts with major terrororists in Germany, including one man close to Usama bin Laden. Police have arrested 15 people suspected of belonging to an extremist network there.
This is something for us to think about in America as mosques spring up everywhere, where a New Jersey family was evidently murdered for being Egyptian Coptic Christians, where money is raised and sent to Muslim extremists overseas, and where speeches are given regularly calling for eradication of the enemies of Islam. To paraphrase Pogo, they have seen the enemy, and it is us.
Freedom House, an organization founded in 1941 to promote democracy and freedom has spent some time researching the brand of Islam imported by Saudi Arabia to America. FH has published a study called “Saudi Publications on Hate Ideology Fill American Mosques”. If it tells you anything about the way the world is today, they published it without any author’s name on it.
The leg work was done by Muslim volunteers. They visited mosques across the country and obtained 200 books and other publications that are published by Saudi Arabia.
Here is what these books teach. First, that Christianity is not a valid faith. I think this is hilarious. All over America preachers and politicians are trying to tell us that Muslims worship the same God we do. Guess what. Muslims do not think they worship the same God we do. They declare Muslims who think so to be “infidels”. (Notice you hear the word “infidel” from Radical Muslims almost as much as the word “kill”, and often in the same sentence.)
Second, the mosques teach that America should be subject to Sharia, the law of Islam. Yes, that is the law where people get their hands cut off, women must wear veils, and everyone who is not Muslim (infidels) should be killed. There are those words again.
Here are some good quotes from the religion of peace: "Be dissociated from the infidels, hate them for their religion, leave them, never rely on them for support, do not admire them, and always oppose them in every way according to Islamic law.” Or this little gem: "To be true Muslims, we must prepare and be ready for jihad in Allah's way."
Saudi Arabia pretends to be an ally of the United States, but they are fomenting trouble. Unfortunately, one of the President’s blind spots is his affection for the House of Saud and his insistence that Islam is compatible with our way of life. Will our government wake up to this threat, or will we slide into oblivion?
Another outfit that promotes Islam’s effort to subjugate America is CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. This group is also funded by Saudi Arabia. Their goal is to bring America under Islam’s sandal. They have said Islam is not in America to be equal to other religions, but to dominate.
