Religion of Peace?
Those in denial about the threat of Islamo-fascism often attempt to minimize the issue by claiming the nutty ones are out of the mainstream of the true tenets of the Religion of Peace (ROP). Problem is, those claims fly in the face of all the evidence. Consider mainstream Islamic response to the Queen of England bestowing some silly knighthood honor on Salman Rushdie. You may remember that Rushdie wrote a book, Satanic Verses, nearly 20 years ago that led the leaders of the ROP to declare a fatwa and call for his murder. Here is one response to the knighthood business from Pakistan which is supposed to be moderate:
Mohammed Ijaz ul-Haq, religious affairs minister, told the Pakistani parliament in Islamabad. "The west is accusing Muslims of extremism and terrorism. If someone exploded a bomb on his body he would be right to do so unless the British government apologises and withdraws the 'sir' title."So, the ROP equates attaching a bomb to your body and killing a bunch of people with bestowing knighthood.
Here is the reaction from another supposedly moderate Muslim country:
Egyptian Parliament Speaker Fathi Sorur said Wednesday, "Honoring someone who has offended the Muslim religion is a bigger error than the publication of caricatures attacking Prophet Mohammed (PBUH)."
The cartoons which were frequently republished by the Western media, sparked violent protests throughout the Muslim world and led to the boycott of Danish products.
Okay, tell me again why anyone takes these moroons seriously?
If you don't like his books then don't buy them.
