No Such Thing As “Moderate Islam”. Such Is a Construct Of The Secular Left

coexistslayer

Moderate Islam isn’t what most Muslims believe. It’s what most ignorant liberals in the West believe that Muslims believe.

The Arabic adage says that the ‘enemy of my enemy is my friend’, which goes to explain the unholy alliance between Radical Islam and Radical Secular Leftists.  They hate the affluent West and especially the Great and little Satan that represent the affluent Democracies  that showcase the failure of Islam as a benevolent religion on the planet.

We have heard endlessly from the Praetorian Media that most of the billions of Muslims on the planet are ‘moderate’ and Jihadists who cut off heads of bound but alive Westerners with steak knives is simply a small fraction of ‘radicals’.  That of course is a lie because like Global Warming, ‘Moderate Islam’ is a fairy tale construct of the Left.  Daniel Greenfield explains it perfectly.

Moderate Islam is Our New Religion

I have been searching for moderate Islam since September 11 and just like a lost sock in the dryer, it was in the last place I expected it to be.

There is no moderate Islam in the mosques or in Mecca. You won’t find it in the Koran or the Hadiths. If you want to find moderate Islam, browse the newspaper editorials after a terrorist attack or take a course on Islamic religion taught by a Unitarian Sociologist wearing fake native jewelry.

You can’t find a moderate Islam in Saudi Arabia or Iran, but you can find it in countless network news specials, articles and books about the two homelands of their respective brands of Islam.

You won’t find the fabled land of moderate Muslims in the east. You won’t even find it in the west. Like all myths it exists in the imagination of those who tell the stories. You won’t find a moderate Islam in the Koran, but you will find it in countless Western books about Islam.

Moderate Islam isn’t what most Muslims believe. It’s what most liberals believe that Muslims believe.

The new multicultural theology of the West is moderate Islam. Moderate Islam is the perfect religion for a secular age since it isn’t a religion at all.

Take Islam, turn it inside out and you have moderate Islam. Take a Muslim who hasn’t been inside a mosque in a year, who can name the entire starting lineup of the San Diego Chargers, but can’t name Mohammed’s companions and you have a moderate Muslim. Or more accurately, a secular Muslim.

An early generation of Western leaders sought the affirmation of their national destinies in the divine. This generation of Western leaders seeks the affirmation of their secular liberalism in a moderate Islam.

Even if they have to make it up.

Without a moderate Islam the Socialist projects of Europe which depend on heavy immigration collapse. America’s War on Terror becomes the endless inescapable slog that the rise of ISIS has once again revealed it to be. Multiculturalism, post-nationalism and Third World Guiltism all implode.

Without moderate Muslims, nationalism returns, borders close and the right wins. That is what they fear.

If there is no moderate Islam, no moderate Mohammed, no moderate Allah, then the Socialist Kingdom of Heaven on Earth has to go in the rubbish bin. The grand coalitions in which LGBT activists and Islamists scream at Jews over Gaza aren’t the future; they’re the Weimar Republic on wheels.

Flash back to Obama in his tan suit wearily saying that he has no strategy for ISIS. The original plan was to capture Osama alive, give him a civilian trial, cut a deal with the moderate Taliban and announce the end of the War on Terror before the midterm elections.

So much for that.

Moderate Islam is a difficult faith. To believe in it you have to disregard over a thousand years of recorded history, theology, demographics and just about everything that predates 1965. You have to ignore the bearded men chopping off heads because they don’t represent the majority of Muslims.

Neither does Mohammed, who did his own fair share of headchopping.

The real Islam is a topic that non-Muslims of no faith who hold sacred only the platitudes of a post-everything society are eager to lecture on without knowing anything about it.

Their Islam is not the religion of Mohammed, the Koran, the Hadiths, the Caliphs or its practitioners in such places as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq or Indonesia. Their Islam is a religion that does not exist, but that they fervently believe must exist because without it their way of life is as doomed as the dodo.

They aren’t Muslims. They have no faith in Allah or the Koran. Instead they have faith in the goodness of an Islam that exists without resort to scriptures, theology or deity. This may seem strange to actual believers, but after all their own poor tattered scraps of Christianity or Judaism don’t bother paying too much attention to deities or scriptures except when it comes to cherry-picking quotes about tolerance.

Is it any wonder that they treat Islam the same way?

The true moderate Muslims are secular liberals of loosely Christian and Jewish persuasion who have invented and believe in a moderate Islam that doesn’t exist outside of their own heads. This secular Islam, which values all life, is dedicated to social justice and universal tolerance, is a counterpart of their own bastardized religions. And they are too afraid to wake up and realize that it doesn’t exist.

When American and European leaders insist that Islam has nothing to do with the latest Islamic atrocity, they are not referencing a religion practiced by Muslims, but an imaginary religion that they imagine Muslims must practice because the alternative is the end of everything that they believe in.

Their moderate Islam is light on the details, beyond standing for social justice, fighting Global Warming and supporting gay rights, because it is really multiculturalism wearing a fake beard. When a Western leader claims that the latest batch of Islamic terrorists don’t speak for Islam, he isn’t defending Muslims, he’s defending multiculturalism. He assumes that Muslims believe in multiculturalism because he does.

Moderate Islam is just multiculturalism misspelled. Its existence is a firm article of faith for those who believe in multiculturalism.

Dissuading a believer in moderate Muslims from his invented faith by citing the long trail of corpses or the hateful Hadiths that call for mass murder is futile because these are not the roots of his religion. He doesn’t know what a Hadith is nor does he care. As a social justice man in good standing, he attributes the violent track record of Islam to European colonialism and oppression.

He has never read the Koran. He has read a thousand articles about how Muslims are oppressed at the airport, in Gaza, in Burma and in Bugs Bunny cartoons. They are his new noble savages and he will not hear a word against them. Having colonized their identities in his imagination (despite the marked up copy of Edward Said’s Orientalism that he keeps by his bedside) he treats them as reflections of his ego.

When you say that moderate Muslims don’t exist, you are calling him a bad person. When you challenge Islam, you are attacking multiculturalism and he will call you a racist, regardless of the fact that Islam is as much of a race as Communism, Nazism or the Mickey Mouse Fan Club were races.

The moderate Muslim is an invention of the liberal academic, the secular theologian, the vapid politician and his shrill idiot cousin, the political activist. Like the money in the budgets that underpin their plans and the scientific evidence for Global Warming, he does not exist.

And it is not necessary that he should exist. It is only necessary that we have faith in his existence.

The degraded lefty descendants of Christians and Jews wait for a moderate Muslim messiah who will reconcile the impossibilities of their multicultural society by healing the conflicts between Islam and the West. Until then they find him, it necessary to believe, not in a divinity, but in the moderate Muslim.

One September Morning…

WTC-9-11

Everything changed one perfect morning twelve years ago, and into the fog of forget America wanders.

Like Memorial Day, September 11 is slowly but inexorably morphing into something other than a day to remember the reason the day is marked.  Time is eroding the true nature of Jihadist Islam and what it did to the mightiest nation on earth in just 102 minutes.

Of course Barack Obama and his Marxofascist Leftists have a hand in changing the public perception of what the day was and what it is now supposed to represent.  There’s a Million Man Muslim March on D.C. today to bitch and moan that 9-11 creates a negative stereotype of Muslims and to demand government stop “libelous slander against Islam”.

To counter that, a Two Million Biker Rally in remembrance of the Fallen and America’s Veterans was planned – but Obama’s Federal Government denied them the permit, even though they awarded a permit for the Muslims to march in victory over the Great Satan.   In good American tradition however, the Bikers are planning on ignoring any attempts by the feds to stop them, and are planning on riding to D.C. anyway.

It seems the efforts by the Obama regime and Muslims who demand Americans do not look at them or their religion in a negative light, are working hard to extinguish and paper-over what 9-11 really was and the kind of enemy who is still at war with us even as you read this.

But I remember what happened that one September morning twelve years ago.  Many others do also.

Lest we forget and become easy prey for those who seek to deceive in order to destroy.

A September Evening

Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog

For a while, the eyes still seemed to see them there, perfect straight lines rising into the sky, an empty space on the horizon that your mind filled in without even thinking. You walked past, and thought, “Of course they’re there. They’re always there” and you saw them as they were, grey ghosts of steel rising above the rubble. You saw the city as it was and then you remembered that city is gone.

New York, the old grimy bustling city, has made way for two cities. The Bloombergian city of the yuppie toting a bag of organic groceries to her Citibike and the miniature Detroits of housing projects and endless grievances.

The old imaginary city still exists in the countless movies being filmed on every block where space aliens, monsters and superheroes regularly rampage past stereotypical cabbies with Brooklyn accents, but that city is fading away.

The tourists flock to see the shadow of that city which lingers on like the shadow of the towers.

On September 11, Ground Zero was New York. Today you can see Mexican and African vendors peddling commemorative patriotic knickknacks made in China and on a bad day the Truthers show up howling their contempt for the site. Tourists stop by and pose for snapshots with their families. Office workers walk by without thinking. The site, like the towers, is just something that’s there.

Tonight and the night before as the towers of light cast blue beams across the sky, we remember but memory is a destructive medium. Each year the memories grow fainter. People ask each other where they were that day but the stories grow fainter each year and the memories of walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, stumbling through the ash or handing out sandwiches to rescue workers have dimmed.

To walk through the darkness toward the towers of light is to pass through a city of shadows. In a stray glimmer of light reflecting from a storefront or a puddle you can still see the old MISSING posters covering every face and dark trucks filled with grim men tearing apart the street asphalt. You can catch glimpses of a city reeling from the incomprehensible.

New York City is used to tragedy. Terrible things happen here all the time. The oldest photos of the city show the same stunned faces, legs lying in a puddle of blood, gawking children and stern cops frowning at something we cannot see. And relentlessly the blood is washed away, the tears are dried and the city moves on. September 11 left behind more blood, more legs and more frowning police… but the ashes have still been dumped in a landfill, the tears dried and the city moved on.

September 11 has become a tragedy and tragedy is an experience, not an explanation. It is a bonding experience that gives way to catharsis. The dead are mourned, the grief is expelled and the horror of it takes on the faint tinge of memory. It is no longer what is, but what was. It is not how we live now, but how we lived then. There is no longer a need for answers and that for many is also a relief.

“It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story,” Agatha Christie said.

Most people who live here have given up on solving the city’s detective stories. The weathered New Yorker is expected to meet the  inexplicable with a shrug of the shoulders. Everything is strange, but the strangeness is the point. Everyone is living in a postmodern detective story with no solutions and no need for them.

In Murder on the Orient Express, Poirot arrives at the solution by realizing that only in America could such an unlikely collection of characters have met. By America, he means New York, and the city is still the ideal place to find unlikely collisions of characters.

There is still a murder to be solved  and the suspects come and go in the streets below. The crime did not end with the murder of 3,000 people and the destruction of two towers. New schemes of mass murder are hatched every day across one river or the other. Maps are studied, charts are drawn up and the tools of the trade are gathered up by men who during the day sell papers or drive food trucks.

The murderers are still on the loose and what happened that terrible day was not an isolated incident, but part of a pattern of attacks taking place in a clash of civilizations. New York, the crossroads of civilizations, is a natural target for the attacks. New York is to the world what Mecca was to Arabia and the new Mohammeds are eager to do to it what Mohammed did to Mecca.

Bin Laden is dead, but the Muslim Oilsphere is full of other wealthy sons warring against the West. His backers are alive and the drone attacks that kill Al Qaeda leaders don’t touch their money men in the Oilsphere. The clerics who teach young Muslim men about the glories of martyrdom can rest easy. They can even open up a mosque at Ground Zero.

This conflict of ideologies and collision of cultures is nothing less than the perpetuation of the great Islamic crusade against the Other. And where better to wage that war than in the places where others meet others every day? What better target than a World Trade Center for a violent ideology built on merchants turned robbers and robbers turned merchants?

In a city where everyone is different, it can be difficult for some to understand that the attackers were motivated by those differences. Their war against us is an attack on people who are fundamentally and incomprehensibly different than they are.

Islam is xenophobia written into unholy writ, a long chain of conquest, subjugation and cultural destruction by desert nomads who know how to drive a sharp bargain, but despite their claims of golden ages and scientific discoveries, have never been anything more than the jackals sniffing around the ruins of greater civilizations.

It is as natural for them to attack us as it is for us to wonder why we were attacked.

Americans hold the peculiar belief that life need not be a zero sum game. That we can learn from other people without turning them into our subjects. That we can make more of something instead of stealing from a finite amount that someone else has and then destroying them so that they can never get it back.

That is the great creative power of American Exceptionalism. It is a transcendent force that turned a land full of refugees into a world power brimming with technological wonders.

New York, that strange part-Dutch, part-English, part-Everything-else city, runs on the creativity of the impossible. Starving artists, aspiring actors, failed musicians, flailing poets, real estate mavens without a dime and brokers trading thin air gamble on the impossible. New York always seems on the verge of total anarchy and destruction and yet keeps going on in that strange half-mad creativity.

For Islam, the game is zero sum. If American civilization thrives, then their civilization is shadowed. If people are happy here, then they cannot be happy. If there are two towers in New York, that detracts from the glory of Islamic civilization. Islam is the bitter beggar forever looking to steal what it cannot have, worrying over the imaginary history of its own greatness and cursing the upstarts in the streets of a foreign city for taking the glory was rightfully theirs.

The American who shares his good fortune with the rest of the world cannot understand that there are some people who would rather steal than accept a gift, who would rather destroy than build and who would rather drown the world in darkness than accept someone else’s light.

With some difficulty he might accept the existence of a small number of people who think this way, but an entire civilization built in this mold is too obscene an idea.

As with so many other strange things that wash up in the concrete streets of a strange city, it is easier to leave the mystery unsolved, to let the blanket fall back over the clash of civilizations and go on forward. It is the way that things have always been done in the city and as twin rays of light bisect the sky, they remind New Yorkers of their own fortitude, and not of the enemy waiting outside the light.

Outside a shadow war is waged with drones and hackers, spies and journalists, men in mosques speak quietly of terror and other men listen over the phone. There is little truth in this shadow war, but in some moments the light pierces the darkness and those who have forgotten why we are doing this, remember. And then they remember to forget.

Sharia Implementation: Posting Anything “Mean” About Muslims, Is Now A Federal Criminal Act

ObamaShhhharia

The First Amendment is dead as U.S. Attorney says posting anything negative about Islam is a Federal violation of civil rights laws.

The hits from the Obama regime just keep on coming, and coming and coming.

Yesterday it was reported that Obama’s regime (with help from John McCain)  is committing treason by arming Al Qaeda-backed rebels in Syria who slaughtered an entire Christian village.

syria-christian-massacre

Members of the Free Syrian Army reportedly attacked the Christian-dominated al-Duvair village in Reef on the outskirts of Homs on Monday, where they massacred its citizens, including women and children…The U.S. and other Western governments that are backing the FSA have acknowledged the presence of jihadists but insist that they’re only a small part of the rebel movement. However, al-Qaeda and other Islamic extremist groups have been at the front of the rebel movement since day one of the Syrian war that began two years ago. According to German intelligence, 95 percent of the rebels aren’t even Syrian.

The slaughter was committed as an effort by the Jihadists to implement Sharia Law in Dictator Assad’s formerly secularist Syria.

Why is this issue of concern for us in America?  Well, aside from Obama helping to create an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East, the Obama regime is implementing by default, Sharia right here as part of Federal Law.

U.S. Attorney for the Obama Federalies  asserts posting the truth about Jihadists and radical Islamists is now a violation of Federal law.  This is defacto implementation of Sharia Law under the guise of protecting ‘civil rights’ for Jihadists and radical Muslims.   Interestingly, that application of ‘civil rights laws’  does not extend to Christians.  Everyone, including Muslims are free to demonize, denounce and insult Christianity and Christians for their faith and no such criminal violation of  ‘civil rights laws’ will be applied or upheld.

Well, I for one will continue to post the TRUTH about Jihadists and radical Muslims until I am forced to stop.  And you can be sure, this regime is going to attempt to force us to shut up.

Why do you think they obtained all that data and collected all those e-mails, cell numbers and texts from the press corps?

You need to be asking yourself, ‘how long before speaking ill of homosexuals, or the Democrats or Obama will be made a Federal crime?’  My guess is soon now.  This regime has reached the point of power that it believes it can do whatever it wants to do without any consequences.   Obama and the MarxoFascist war on the First Amendment and the press has reached the bombardment phase.

Think Hitler versus the Munich Post in the 30′s.  Think Soviet, because that is where we have arrived.

From Breitbart today.

US Attorney Bill Killian: Posting Something Mean About Muslims on Social Media Might Be a Criminal Action Under Federal Civil Rights Laws

The First Amendment served us well for a time, but now it’s outdated.

Remember reading that England had arrested a guy for anti-Muslim Twitter postings in the aftermath of the Woolrich slaughter? And remember thinking, “Well, this is America, that can’t happen here”?
Oh yes it can. Obama’s Attorney for the Eastern district of Tennessee wants you to know that if you say something untoward about Muslims, the Federal government may imprison you.

Killian and Moore will provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian told The News Monday. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.” … Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.

The posting he offers as a “for instance” is an egregious one. And yet this country has long protected, absolutely, egregious speech, such as hardcore pornography, for a simple reason: Either you are at liberty to say what you will or you are not. If you are constantly double-thinking every word you might say, for fear of being prosecuted, you are self-censoring, in anticipation of a possible prosecution by the government.

Rather than having a system in which people were constantly worried about imprisonment for speech, our country has evolved a simple bright-line code: Speech of all kinds, with a few exceptions that can be counted on three fingers, is absolutely protected.

Remember, the importance of this bright-line, no-exceptions rule of free speech was preached to us, even when some of us might not have liked it so much, as when hardcore pornography was afforded absolute protection under the First Amendment. In the case of hardcore pornography, it was argued — successfully — that having each artist weigh the possibility of an obscenity prosecution was too much of a burden on his free speech rights, and would have, unavoidably, a chilling effect on speech.

That was the rule then, and that was the rationale.

But now comes the Obama Administration to tell you that Yes, you just might be imprisoned for something you say online, so you’d better Watch What You Say.

Remember when Ari Fleischer said that, without suggesting any kind of legal penalties? Remember how the media freaked out?

But now comes the US Attorney for the Eastern district of Tennessee explicitly telling you that you may be imprisoned if a political appointee decides your political speech has crossed a line.

Somehow, I don’t think Tim Robbins will be portentously howling us that a “chill wind” is blowing across our rights of free expression this week.

More from Flopping Aces, who dug up video of Obama “joking” about using the IRS to punish those who he does not like to make the point that much of what Obama ‘joked’ about or made mention of during 2008-2009 – is being IMPLEMENTED.

American Christians Surrender To Islam

Surrender-to-Islam

The growing trend of Pastors, Politicians and Parishoners converting to, or compromising the Muslim faith with the God of The Bible.

Let’s face it, Christianity has lost it’s salt in the West.  It is become a lukewarm limp noodle that will not stand for the God of the Bible, Jesus Christ, The Gospel, The Commandments or against sin.  Instead, the wet tissue paper of today’s Christian church stands for ‘tolerance’, ‘diversity’, ‘acceptance’ and ‘love’ while adhering to a Satanic deception that Christians should not judge sin, or right from wrong.  The number of American Christians I have heard that say proselytizing or preaching the Gospel is ‘offensive’ to non-Christians and should not be done, is epidemic.  They buy the media’s argument that trying to convert others to Christianity is a sin, while nary a word about the conversion of Christians in the West to Islam and Hinduism.  II Timothy 3:5  is what the Christian church in America is become, and how we have arrived at the point that embracing homosexuality and even perverting the God-ordained institution of marriage IN the church is growing in acceptance.

Greater Christianity in America no longer even stands for itself.  It has become a lip-service faith.  A  hybrid of the secular materialistic society that dominates our culture.  Gone is the focus of doing Matthew 28: 19-20.  Missionary funding and support for preaching the gospel takes a back seat to bigger monuments to self;  ‘great works of the Lord’ focused on getting more bodies into pews and offerings into plates than transforming lives with the Gospel.    Giant mega buildings with coffee shops and ATM’s in the lobby designed to draw thousands that sit empty and unused most of the week.  Televangelists and false preachers beg their members for money for personal lavish royal lifestyles.  Convenience, programs and perks make church more a social club than a place to sharpen iron for the task of a way of life we have been called to.  Instead the people want to hear smooth and easy things for itching ears.

So too has arisen the political Left church – whose doctrines are a melding of Marxist philosophy with the Beatittudes of the Sermon on the Mount that champion what they say is Christian Socialism.   Those that do say they adhere to the bible, are more intent it seems to tear other Christians apart, hide themselves from the world and fight or eschew others in the faith over matters of doctrine, catechism and understanding, rather than standing against sin.

Divorce, adultery, addictions, abortion, homosexuality are as practiced in the church in America as it is in the collapsing society at large.

So is it any wonder, that now we hear American pastors, preachers and televangelists equating Islam as equal to or superior to Christianity?  Should we be surprised that a new heresy of Chrislam is being pushed and promoted by the leadership of large Christian churches and denominations?  Does it alarm any in the faith that former American Christians find no power in Christianity, and are flocking to Islam and converting to a faith that stands for the purpose of conquering and to conquer with the bow and the sword?

I continue to be amazed at how God moves His true servants with a message that He wants a remnant to hear.  A pastor friend of mine wrote an observation last week about this very subject – and his essay was followed by one story after another that illustrated his point to an alarming perfection.  A pattern is emerging as America and the West are continually given over to strong delusion to believe a lie, and the desire to follow those lies with eagerness because Christians are too busy following men, and not Scripture.

Becoming Muslim  

By Jim O’Brien

While passing through a line at an airport security check I witnessed an animated conversation between a male and female pair of security guards. Both were Americans, formerly Christians and he was questioning her decision to convert to Islam. She, at a loss to find a convincing answer threw up her hands and exclaimed, “It’s something you wouldn’t understand.”

You may be as perplexed as I am that any American, born in a country where freedom and justice have been highly valued, would choose to embrace Islam. You may be shocked to know that a wave of tens of thousands of people in the Western Culture have converted to Islam. Even more appalling is that 75 percent of those multiple thousands are women.

If the trend could be worse, it is. Most of these women gravitate to the more misogynistic groups where women have no rights. Yet they insist all the while that they feel liberated and free.

Abigail Esman, an award-winning author, has written a new book called Radical State: How Jihad is Winning Over Democracy in the West. Ms. Esman has studied many such women.

She writes that “most of these young women display little self-confidence or ability to define their own values and behavior-qualities that make them easily influenced by others, and susceptible especially to those who offer up a lifestyle option that relinquishes them from responsibility for their actions, that gives them a code of behavior and the ease of attributing what they do or wear or eat to God and not to self.”

Because the profiles of the converts are very similar, “recruiting by radical Muslims is made so easy-and is-performed virtually programmatically.”

BBC reports that, “Muslim women are targeted by extremist recruiters for jihad precisely for their willingness to follow the advice of more ‘knowledgeable’ Muslims and the commands and demands of Muslim men.”

Why are such women so valuable to Muslim extremists? The answer was given by Zubeidat Tsarnaev, mother of the Boston marathon bombing suspect in a CNN interview. She said, “If they are going to kill him. I don’t care. My oldest son is killed, so I don’t care. I don’t care if my youngest son is going to be killed today. I want the world to hear this. And, I don’t care if I am going to get killed too. And I will say Allahu Akbar!”

Muslim extremists are looking for women so lacking in values and so easily influenced by others that they will raise a child to be sacrificed on the altar of Muslim jihad. And they are finding them in the Western Culture.

When the Apostle Paul preached to Gentiles in Galatia many were converted to the rational faith of Christianity. Some of those who had been enslaved to pagan gods found freedom in Christianity. But freedom is hard to maintain. It requires taking responsibility for self. So some of the new Christians sought out new masters to whom they could become enslaved again. Paul admonished them when he wrote, “O foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth…”

Paul was shocked that free people would volunteer to become slaves again. No rational person would give up obedience to truth to become enslaved to a man unless he was mesmerized or hypnotized.

So we are as shocked in the 21st Century as Paul was in the 1st. There are beings among us with the body of a human but lacking the spirit of freedom. They seek bridles and chains to be led by unscrupulous tyrants. They have gained a foothold; may they never gain dominance in the land of the free.

Well Jim, my friend, when the leadership of the largest congregations and denominations in America start preaching that Allah and The Father of the Bible are one and the same – is it any wonder that this people would sell themselves into the slavery of Islam?

Pastor Rick Warren Says Allah and God Are One in the Same

Rick-Warren-Chrislam

Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California is the eighth largest church in the United States with an average attendance of 20,000 or more.  Rick Warren is the founder and senior pastor of this mega church.  He is also known for his popular book and program of church growth known as The Purpose Driven Church.

He has built his temple of thousands on a platform of liberal theology.  His preaching is more emotionally based than spiritually based which is how, according to Rick Warren, you build a big church.  The bottom line of his philosophy is that it is more important to build a big church than teach sound biblical theology.

In his typical liberal fashion, Pastor Rick Warren has joined a movement known as King’s Way.  The movement’s goal is to bring Christians and Muslims together without either group trying to proselytize or convert the other.

As part of this effort, Warren announced that he wants to create a set of principles that both evangelical Christians and Muslims could agree to in the effort to bring churches and mosques closer together.  One of those principles is that we both worship the same God.  In other words, God and Allah are one in the same deity.

Muslim Christian Forum

Sorry Pastor Rick Warren but you couldn’t be more wrong.  If you really believe this, it demonstrates just how far from the Bible you have strayed.

Yes, I know that Muslims trace their history back to the Ishmael, the son of Abraham and Jews and Christians trace their history back to Isaac, also the son of Abraham.  Warren used this common history as the basis of making his statement on God and Allah being one and the same.

However, the Muslim view of Allah and is not the same as the Christian view of God.  Here are some major differences:

  • Allah is one in substance and person where God is one in substance yet three persons in the Godhead.
  • One of the persons in the Christian Godhead is Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
  • In Islam, Jesus was all human who was a prophet whose message has become corrupted.
  • Christianity is based upon Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection.  Islam believes that Jesus did not die on the cross but did bodily ascend into heaven (it was one of his disciples).

There are many other differences, but I listed these as they are critical to the Christian faith.  Christianity is based upon the fact that Jesus was God incarnate who died on the cross, was resurrected from the dead and ascended to the right hand of the throne of God.  Islam does not recognize Jesus’ deity, death and resurrection.

So who exactly does Rick Warren worship?  Does he worship God and Jesus Christ or does he worship Allah who denies the deity of Christ?  If he worships God, then he cannot believe that God and Allah are one and same.  If he worships Allah, then he is not a Christian.  You can’t have it both ways.

But it doesn’t stop there, Americans refuse to accept the fact Jihadist Islam is at war with us, and seeks to kill, main, and subjugate by force.

Man Shouts Allah Akbar and Tries to Cut Rabbi’s Throat: Police Say Motive Unclear

infidel

It’s another one of those baffling mysteries. Muslims attack non-Muslims while shouting Allah Akbar and no one can figure out a motive.

Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre, a spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor’s office, said the two victims had been wearing Jewish skullcaps, and the attacker was detained after a chase through the synagogue. The Simon Wiesenthal Center, which monitors anti-Semitic incidents worldwide, said in a statement that the assailant screamed “Allah-u-Akbar” — or “God is great” — during the attack.

The rabbi, who is in his late 40s, was recovering from surgery for a neck injury and his 18-year-old son sustained lesser injuries in the attack. The assailant was of Iranian origin, and an official investigation was underway to determine a possible motive.

Neck injury is the Washington Post’s delicate way of saying that he tried to cut Rabbi Baruch d’Epinay’s throat.

The motive is incomprehensible. The one thing we can be sure of is that Islam has nothing to do with it. The media is emphasizing the loony angle because the Muslim attacker was a patient, but a Muslim attacking a Rabbi is not a mental breakdown, it’s conventional enough behavior. There have been plenty of Muslim attacks on Jews in Europe. Major Muslim leaders have called for doing far worse than slashing two men with a boxcutter.

But once we’ve dismissed the Islamic motive and focused on the loony issue,why was the Muslim slasher committed to a psychiatric hospital in the first place?

“He was detained on 28 March after being arrested for” the damage committed on the astronomical clock of the cathedral of Lyon, “said another source.

So it’s a real interfaith issue.

What was his entirely secular reason for attacking the church clock? He complained that the clock was interfering with his prayers.

Then there are the Islamic countries within our country that serve as Jihad training camps, open and in our faces with the permission of our own Government.

Islamabergs arise all over America.  Islamic Jihad Training Camps dot the landscape under the permissive eyes of the federal Government.

islamberg

Hidden in the picturesque Catskills Mountains, in Hancock, NY, siting on more than 80 acres of land, surrounded by trees, rolling hills, lakes and, most importantly, armed guards that protect it, is a city within a city. Its Islamic leaders call it “The Town of Islamberg.” Located at 2732 Roods Creek Road, Hancock, NY, the Town of Islamberg is more like a country within a country.

It’s an Islamic community, located about 3 hours from New York City. It has set itself up as its own city-state, with its own laws, its own government (its own mayor, deputy mayor and 5 town council members; government departments of “Land and Development,” “Finance,” “Education” and even a “Medical Services” department), as well as its own military. The Islamic council members are not elected, of course. They are self-appointed demagogues who rule their community with the iron fist of Islamic law. There is no Sheriff Andy, no Barney Fife, no Aunt Bee in this town.

The group behind this initiative is an organization called Muslims of the Americas (MOA)—an organization, by the way, that was once listed as a terrorist organization by the United States Department of State. The group’s founder, Sheik Gilani, fashions himself as a direct descendent of Muhammad. He was the man to whom Wall Street journalist Danny Pearl was on his way to meet in Lahore, Pakistan on January 22, 2002, hunting for al Qaeda connections, when he was abducted and slaughtered by an Islamic extremist.

MOA has nearly three-dozen villages, camps and Islamic compounds scattered around the United States, all of varying sizes and population, in Texas, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, California and Tennessee. But this camp in Hancock, which also serves as their headquarters, is the first to be so brazen to set up its own Islamic government. And the one thing they all have in common: This is where everyone–-men, women and children–-prepare for Jihad against America. So, please join me in taking a moment to thank those millions of ass holes that voted for an administration that will NO DOUBT welcome more and more Towns of Islambergs and Islamvilles all over the country with open arms.

Want to know just a wee bit more (you can get more detail from the link provided below) about the MOA thinks and preaches about Jews? Just a snippet: “Jews are an example of human Satans. In the U.S. there are now thousands of temples where Satan is worshipped.”

How ‘bout a small sampling of what they think of Christians? “By having put their god on a crucifix as opposed to executing Satan, they not only have blasphemed against the Wisdom and Judgment of God Almighty, but reduced Him to a role of subservience to Satan.”

America? “America is no longer the home of the free and the land of the brave. The constitution and the Bill of Rights are just pieces of paper that don’t mean a damn thing anymore, unless you are white and an anti-Muslim hatemonger of course.”

Violence? “We must put a stop to the violence and aggression against our peoples by force if necessary. We must work with each other and collectively refuse to accept the injustice and aggression of the West and its protégé, Israel.”

Naive American citizens of all faiths, government officials and of course our media obviously embrace this crap. I guess the desire to be known as a bridge-builder is more important than confronting extremism, and the fear of being called Islamaphobic is more important than protecting our culture and national security.

Here’s what the course of action should be:

First, how ‘bout we freeze their assets, and take their property. We then have our military empty these camps and towns and peacefully escort them all out of this country and back to their 7th century cave dwelling lifestyles, and then put the names of every man, woman and child on a no-fly list.

Second, if they refuse to leave peacefully, we air-strike first and then bulldoze their compounds.

This is America. We are Americans. We cannot allow this to continue on American soil. People who come here, who live here, must do so because they want to be American. We cannot co-exist in America with people who do not want to be American.

Osama bin Laden went through so much trouble, time, training and expense to bomb and terrorize, America into submission. And little did he know that all he had to do was buy property in America and start forming his own Islamic government. Apparently, it’s as simple as that. The guy wasn’t too bright after all, now, was he?

Islamic Compounds in America are Training for Jihad

Praying For A White American/Tea Party/Christian Terrorist

MediaPraysBomberisWhite

The Obama Media works overtime to fulfill their insistent fantasy that the Boston Jihad attackers were White Conservative Christians.

As if we needed any more proof that mainstream media’s religion, focus and worship is rooted in the MarxoFascist Obama agenda, the disgusting spectacle of the corrupted mainstream press corps in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon Jihad attack, reached depths of depravity and propaganda not even I thought possible.

In keeping with the narrative set as policy in the Obama regime, Islamist Jihadists are not considered a threat or risk to the country – while the real danger the government focuses on and preaches against is White, Conservative Christian patriotism.  This meme of blaming TEA Party White Conservatives happens every single time a mass casualty event has occurred since Obama’s crowning as our first emperor.  And no wonder, since April of 2009, the official policy of Obama and his regime is to classify and redirect the entire government and military structure of the United States to consider it’s own citizens who are beholden to God, the bible and the Constitution, as the greatest threat to public security and safety.  While Obama works tirelessly to restrict and rescind our God-ordained Rights, his government works just as tirelessly to aid, comfort and fund Islamists and their Muslim Brotherhood agenda to establish a global Islamic Caliphate that will place the world under Sharia Law.

I find as evidence the fact Obama decided there was no money for Air Traffic Controllers and had them furloughed as part of his ‘sequester’ of so-called budget restrictions in the wake of a Congressional refusal to fund the rate of increase projection in 2013′s budget – but Obama finds MILLIONS of dollars to gift to Islamists and their Jihadists in Syria and Somalia.

Now that it is known that the Boston terrorists were Chechen Jihadists, the media is working overtime to whitewash, bury or justify the Boston attackers. One Jihad Apologist imbecile even went so far as to suggest the Jihadists were driven to hate America because White “Jocks” bullied them, using the Columbine shooters as evidence:

Dave Cullen tells the story of the attack in meticulous detail, debunking many of the popular stereotypes that persist to this day that the attack was meant to avenge bullying by “jocks.”

This is followed by a litany of Media efforts to push the liberal/Islamist alliance viewpoint as the only viable and acceptable view in the wake of the jihad attack.

“If a Muslim did this it will set the Muslim community back a decade,” Khan said. “It will feed into the perception that Muslims are terrorists. Children are more likely to be bullied at school, individuals at work will be treated with suspicion by their coworkers.”

What’s more worrying, to me at least, is the bubbling up of domestic, right-wing terrorist groups and individuals who might commit atrocities out of sheer hatred of government and racial bigotry. 

Daniel Greenfield points out the Obama media absurdity of their effort to actually ‘pray’ for the hope that the Jihad attack was the work of White Americans, while the entire event showcases the unrelenting efforts of the Obama regime and it’s propaganda machine, the media to continue to demonize White American Christian Conservative Patriots as ‘hate’ ‘extremists’ and probable domestic terrorists.

Remember this truth – when any government demonizes a segment of their people it hates, it is not long before they end up criminalizing and eradicating that segment of people from society.  In this case, efforts are being made to whitewash Jihadist Islam having a role while continuing to warn of the threat White Conservatives pose.

Praying for a White American Terrorist

By 

The reactions to the Boston Marathon Massacre were predictable. Alex Jones was going to cry false flag and the media was going to blather about right wing extremism.

Now a suspect, or another suspect, has reportedly been arrested. But before anything happened, the left was hoping he was white. Would his whiteness do anything to change the horror? Would it bring back the lives of the three people murdered, including a little boy?

No, but it would apportion blame in the way that the left thinks is ideologically correct. The loony David Sirota, who has become the go-to guy for bizarre quotes on race and violence, usually finding some backward way of blaming white people for everything, was open about his priorities.

“Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American,” Sirota wrote at Salon. Not, let’s hope he’s caught. Or let’s hope he doesn’t strike again. Let’s hope he’s a white man. That’s not just racism. It’s completely amoral racism.

Sirota looks at terrorism not through the lens of actual existing terrorist organizations, but race.

Privilege tends to determine, he writes, which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals

This has been most obvious in the context of recent mass shootings. In those awful episodes, a religious or ethnic minority group lacking such privilege would likely be collectively slandered and/or targeted with surveillance or profiling (or worse) if some of its individuals comprised most of the mass shooters. However, white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings — even though most come at the hands of white dudes.

One of the problems with Marxists is that they’re clever idiots. Sirota’s screed is a reminder why. Rather than examining the broader picture of events, they view them through the lens of a single category. Class, race or gender determines everything.

Sirota doesn’t need to know anything about the attack or any other attack. All he has to do is equate Adam Lanza to Nidal Hasan based on minority status. (Though Mother Jones, which Sirota formerly relied on, lists Hasan as a “White Dude” to increase the ranks of white dude killers killing in the name of white privilege.)

Meanwhile, non-white or developing-world terrorism suspects are often reflexively portrayed as representative of larger conspiracies, ideologies and religions that must be dealt with as systemic threats

Are they portrayed as such or are they actually members of larger conspiracies? That’s the basic factual question. But we’re not in the realm of facts here.

Sirota isn’t interested in discussing actual real world facts. His facile skill, the one most prized by today’s leftellectuals, is reducing all things to race.

Sure Hasan corresponded with Anwar Al-Awlaki, the Al Qaeda mastermind who found his way to half-white dude, Obama’s kill list. But that’s just more white privilege talking.

Asserting white privilege frees us from having to consider any facts. It preemptively delegitimizes all facts and reduces all dialogues to a catalog of grievances. Even debate becomes a crime.

After September 11, and I do mean right after, lefties hung up signs against the War in Afghanistan, that had not even started yet, arguing that we didn’t bomb any of the places McVeigh lived after Oklahoma City. Sirota brings up a variation of the same tired argument that misses the point.

If McVeigh had been part of an international Neo-Nazi group with thousands of fighters and millions of supporters operating in an area outside the United States, we would have bombed it. He wasn’t. Neither was Adam Lanza or the Columbine shooters. The 9/11 hijackers were.

Those are facts, which are a notorious form of white privilege. Muslim terrorism is a collection of organized international movements with a deep base of support from outside the country. It’s an invasive force. It’s also far more lethal. That holds true regardless of who carried out the Boston Marathon Massacre. The list of bombing plots averted by the authorities in the last 15 years are ample testimony to that. But while most people care about stopping the violence, lefties like Sirota would like us to racially classify the violence.

BOMBING USED TO SLAM PATRIOTS AS ‘HATE’ GROUP

Tea partiers wouldn’t have done it, because victims weren’t ‘black’

The reason it’s unlikely a tea-party, patriot or right-wing group perpetrated the Boston Marathon bombing is because the victims weren’t “black people or Jewish people or gay people or Muslims,” claimed a senior fellow of the Southern Poverty Law Center earlier this week.

The SPLC – a left-wing, nonprofit organization that describes itself as dedicated to fighting “bigotry” and monitoring domestic “hate groups” – keeps an eagle eye on tea-party, patriot, Christian, gun-rights and right-wing organizations, often insisting their fires are fueled by racism and hatred, rather than politics or policy.

SPLC Senior Fellow Mark Potok continued the narrative in an interview on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live” earlier this week, when the host asked Potok if the Boston bomber was more likely to be a lone wolf or part of an existing group.

“It’s more likely to be a lone wolf, these kinds of things, at least in the radical right. The non-Islamic radical right, they don’t tend to be carried out in groups at all,” Potok replied. “It may be, in fact, a home grown radical, but perhaps of the jihadist sort. And the reason I think about that in that way is think about who the targets were. You know, this was not a target that one would associate with a radical right-wing bomber. It was not a government building, it was not the IRS, although it was Tax Day on Monday. It was not a minority group. It wasn’t black people or Jewish people or gay people or Muslims.”

The SPLC paints its listing of official “hate groups” with a broad brush, often lumping in politically or socially conservative organizations with white supremacists and neo-Nazis. For example, the SPLC lists among it’s official “hate groups” the Family Research Council, the American Family Association, the Federation for American Immigration Reform and the Traditional Values Coalition.

See “Jihad in America: The Grand Deception,” which reveals the threat that is hidden in plain sight for Americans.

The SPLC further sounds warnings over tea-party and “patriot groups” who oppose a growing federal government or gun-control legislation, often linking libertarian or conservative political positions to racist “hate” activity.

In a recent edition of the SPLC’s “Hatewatch” blog, for example, the Tea Party Nation was among various “extremists” blasted for blaming the Boston bombing on jihadi terror.

“Linking Islam with Ronald Reagan’s ‘evil empire’ of communism, the [Tea Party Nation] warned that the Boston bombings are just another event presaging future violence in ‘an ideological war’ that can only be won if we have tougher, more anti-Islam U.S. political leaders,” the SPLC explained. “That, of course, would be the Tea Party cabal.”

The current suspects being pursued for the bombing, however, have been identified as Islamic sympathizers, in part because of social media posts where one of the suspects listed his “worldview” as “Islam.”

Yet the SPLC insists the real reason for the rise in patriot groups in recent years has little to do with militant Islam or President Obama’s policies – insisting instead, it’s mostly about race.

“The changing demographics have upset many people, and the country is having a hard time coming to terms with it,” SPLC President Richard Cohen told Connecticut’s The Register Citizen in an interview shortly before the bombing. “Obama symbolizes that change to so many people. We have this Kenyan-born, secret Muslim running the country – that is how the country sees it.”

Cohen added that after the Newtown massacre, in which Adam Lanza gunned down 20 first-graders and six educators, the addition of gun-rights advocates into the mix only makes the potential for domestic terrorism more volatile.

“The 1,300 hate groups we counted were before Newtown,” Cohen said, “and before proposals to reinstitute the ban on assault rifles and to require background checks. We are in a really incendiary situation now. A mixture of those who hate and those with guns is a disaster.”

The SPLC, in fact, wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano in March advising them of the growing threat of “patriot” groups.

“In the last four years, we have seen a tremendous increase in the number of conspiracy-minded, anti-government groups as well as in the number of domestic terrorist plots,” the SPLC wrote. “As in the period before the Oklahoma City bombing, we now also are seeing ominous threats from those who believe that the government is poised to take their guns. Because of the looming dangers, we urge you to establish an interagency task force to assess the adequacy of the resources devoted to responding to the growing threat of non-Islamic domestic terrorism.”

“It’s absolutely disturbing,” Cohen told The Register Citizen. “The Department of Homeland Security seems reluctant to devote significant resources to monitoring non-Islamic domestic terrorism, especially in the light of the election of an African-American president and the collapse of the economy.”

Cohen is scheduled to speak before the Salisbury Forum on April 19 at The Hotchkiss School in Salisbury, Conn., on the history of hate groups in the U.S. and what can be done about them.

“One thing I will talk about in Salisbury is how we are seeing similar signs now to what we saw before the Oklahoma City bombing,” Cohen explained. “I don’t think the country is headed for a revolution, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we see another Oklahoma City. I think the prospect of significant damage from domestic terrorism is very real.”

Obama Declares At UN: The Future Must Not Belong to Practicing Christians

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”. -Barrack Obama 9-25-12

Since all Islam demands everyone recognize Mohammed as God’s true prophet – for the Salafists, sufis and shia – anyone who does not acknowledge the prophet is considered not only an infidel – but slander the prophet by their refusal to submit to him.

Obama knows this having been raised a Muslim in Indonesia.  His speech at the UN was an all-out assault on not only freedom of speech, but of faith.  In cleverly cloaked words to deceive ignorant Americans, key phrases ping the ears that the Muslim world will understand what Obama really means.  While the media will parrot that Obama was condemning ‘extremism’, the fact remains that Islam itself is extremism.  His words paint a target on the First Amendment, Free Speech and right to religious exercise – all targets of Obama AND Sharia Law proponents.

As Kevin DuJan notes at Hillbuzz -

Today, Obama spoke out against free speech and wished for a world where those who criticize Islam will be punished (or even executed) worldwide. 

Let’s be really clear about this, folks:  the man sitting in the Oval Office thinks it’s a good idea for global blasphemy laws to be enacted to serve a worldwide state religion, ISLAM.

As DuJan rightfully notes, Obama had published in his ‘memoirs’ ‘Dreams From My Father’, that if the political winds shifted against Islam, he would stand with Muslims.  That is more than apparent since Obama enabled the Jihadist Islamists to take power in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia and other places in the Mid East and has done NOTHING to punish the Islamists who attacked our embassies and killed the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and 4 other Americans.

Instead, Obama slammed Free Speech rights in the US, blamed a video on Youtube and apologized to the Muslim world in TV ads running in Pakistan and elsewhere.

I cannot state it any better than Erick Erickson did at Red State.

The Future Must Not Belong to Practicing Christians

In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly today the President of the United States declared that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Already, the media and the left are in full denial, probably based on their general lack of understanding of theology. This would have been a gaffe had Mitt Romney said it. But with Barack Obama, he’s just speaking bold truths. His bold truth declares that the future does not belong to practicing Christians.

Pay careful attention to what he says.

The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support.

Now, that’s the full paragraph so no one can claim I took him out of context.

But consider this.

It is an orthodox Christian belief that Mohammed is not a prophet. Actual Christians, as opposed to many of the supposed Christians put up by the mainstream media, believe that Christ is the only way to salvation. Believing that is slandering Mohammed. That’s just a fact. If you don’t believe me, you go into the MIddle East and proclaim Christ is the way, the truth, and the life and see what happens to your life.

Then Barack Obama went on to say “Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied.” Note he says we cannot “slander the prophet of Islam” but it’s only the image of Christ in the next sentence — not actually Christ himself desecrated. If this is so, why does Barack Obama’s government continue funding the National Endowment for the Arts, which funds Christ in piss, the Virgin Mary painted in dung, etc.?

Now, in point of fact, this is a major difference between Islam and Christianity. Christ came to this world as an enemy of the world and expected to be impugned. He also tells his followers that they should expect to be impugned. There is joy in being persecuted for following the Risen Lord. In Islam, if you impugn Mohammed, you get a fatwa on your butt.

And then there is the first amendment. The President of the United States tried to have it both ways in his speech.

I know there are some who ask why we don’t just ban such a video. The answer is enshrined in our laws: our Constitution protects the right to practice free speech. Here in the United States, countless publications provoke offense. Like me, the majority of Americans are Christian, and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. Moreover, as President of our country, and Commander-in-Chief of our military, I accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and I will always defend their right to do so. Americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views – even views that we disagree with.

We do so not because we support hateful speech, but because our Founders understood that without such protections, the capacity of each individual to express their own views, and practice their own faith, may be threatened. We do so because in a diverse society, efforts to restrict speech can become a tool to silence critics, or oppress minorities. We do so because given the power of faith in our lives, and the passion that religious differences can inflame, the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression, it is more speech – the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and blasphemy, and lift up the values of understanding and mutual respect.

I know that not all countries in this body share this understanding of the protection of free speech. Yet in 2012, at a time when anyone with a cell phone can spread offensive views around the world with the click of a button, the notion that we can control the flow of information is obsolete. The question, then, is how we respond. And on this we must agree: there is no speech that justifies mindless violence.

Just words, Mr. President? You say “there is no speech that justifies mindless violence,” but all last week you condemned a ridiculous video trailer for a movie that does not exist. Your government ran advertisements in Pakistan denouncing the video. What of free speech, Mr. President? Last week you were saying the violence was understandable given the offensive film and this week you are trying to claim it was mindless.

Oh wait, you did it again in the same speech where you said “there is no speech that justifies mindless violence”:

At times, the conflicts arise along the fault lines of faith, race or tribe; and often they arise from the difficulties of reconciling tradition and faith with the diversity and interdependence of the modern world. In every country, there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening; in every culture, those who love freedom for themselves must ask how much they are willing to tolerate freedom for others.

That is what we saw play out the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.

Time and again the President of the United States tries to have it both ways.

But are they just words?

The fact is, many religions do not recognize Mohammed as a prophet. In the widest swath of Islam, that denial is, in and of itself, slander. So what exactly are you saying Mr. President?

As an exit point, with all of President Obama’s statements on tolerance in his speech, we should remember that tolerance is really not a Christian virtue. As Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia noted, “We need to remember that tolerance is not a Christian virtue. Charity, justice, mercy, prudence, honesty — these are Christian virtues. And obviously, in a diverse community, tolerance is an important working principle. But it’s never an end itself.” The Archbishop also noted that evil preaches tolerance until it is dominate and then it seeks to silence good. That’s not a statement that the President is evil in any way, shape, or form, but we should be mindful when the secular world demands tolerance for all, tolerance for all means we cannot have standards of faith to live by, because those standards obviously require we be intolerant of sins this world has embraced.

The Islamic Post-American World

What a Post-American world looks like, Islamic leaders tell us that the only way we will have peace is if we let them decide what sections of the Bill of Rights we get to keep.

Daniel Greenfield hits another one out of the park:

The left has a choice to make. They can either choose Americanism or the Koran, and for the most part they have made their choice. And we need to make ours. This is not a debate over policies, but over basic freedoms. This is not a conflict over what percent of taxes we will be paying, but whether we will have even the most basic civil rights left by the time that the international order of savages and murderers, and their transnational representatives, are done with us.
