The Ottawa Citizen published an article by Andrew Potter: A monument to modernity. I find that article to be a monumental exemplar of ignorance, prejudice & arrogance. I will reproduce and analyze selected excerpts here. If you desire to read the entire article in context, use the link above.
Examine the article's sub headline.
"Western liberalism" implies freedom of religion. Religion implies anodyne, eleemosynary institutions with a spiritual mission. Islam does not fit that pattern. Islam is violent, at its core, by design. It declares perpetual war against pagans, Jews & Christians. The Muslim's mission is to fight in Allah's cause, to kill others and be killed. The jihad imperatives linked above are confirmed by hadith and codified in Shari'ah [o9.8 & 9.9].
Islam's mission is mercenary: the personal empowerment & emolument of its founder: "...The spoils are for Allâh and the Messenger...." , "...You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives),... ", "The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility...", "When Allah made the Prophet wealthy through conquests...". Do you require more evidence? If so, post a comment requesting it.
But jihad is the inner struggle against one's ego. Yeah, right. Islamic law tells us exactly what it is. "Jihad means to war against non-Muslims,
and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion...."
"Fundamentalists" are not at issue, neither are "extremists" nor are "radicals". Only "believers" are significant to this debate. The ignorant fools who will not read the Qur'an do not know what believers do. Unfortunately, that information is crucial. I will quote Surah Al-Imran 110 in its entirety, including the translator's parenthetical & bracketed expressions, because it is crucial to comprehending the critical concept involved.
The first bracketed expression identifies the antecedent of the personal pronoun: believers. Believers are the best of people who enjoin the good and forbid the bad. To discover the full importance of this ayeh, we must turn to the hadith, one of which explains it explicitly. "...the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam". The believers bring us with chains on our necks until we convert. What part of this do you not understand?
Surah Al-Anfal begins with the disposition of spoils and then defines believers. Context is required for clarity.
8:3. Who perform As-Salât (IqâmatasSalât) and spend out of that We have provided them.
8:4. It is they who are the believers in truth. For them are grades of dignity with their Lord, and Forgiveness and a generous provision (Paradise).
Fearing Allah is a reference to obedience-- to the jihad imperatives. Spending is a reference to participation in Jihad "with your wealth and your lives".
Dignity, forgiveness & generous provision are references to the Mujahid's reward. Once again, full context is required.
3:170. They rejoice in what Allâh has bestowed upon them of His Bounty, rejoicing for the sake of those who have not yet joined them, but are left behind (not yet martyred) that on them no fear shall come, nor shall they grieve.
3:171. They rejoice in a Grace and a Bounty from Allâh, and that Allâh will not waste the reward of the believers.
Another ayeh states the definition with great clarity.
There are no extremists, only believers. There are no moderates, only hypocrites, who shirk jihad. They are described in another hadith. "...During the last days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, where-ever you find them, kill them, for who-ever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection."
Next, Potter accuses conservatives of having more in common with Muslims.
Notice how we are labeled as mean-spirited. Is it possible that our LibTard is the mean spirited one?
How did he describe Palin & Gingrich? "fat, dumb fish"; implying suckers. As a conservative, I demand moral clarity. I will not vote for either of them because they attach unnecessary adjectives to Islam but I do not call them suckers, I call them RINOS and I do not advocate shooting them. .
Potter invokes an authority figure to sum up the argument.
The proposed Ground Zero (Park 51) Mosque is a symbol of Islamic triumph & supremacy; a place where Muslims will go to curse us and pray for our defeat five times each day. It will be a place to celebrate and inculcate the damnable doctrines which impelled the "magnificent 19" to attack us. It will serve to raise the morale of our enemies, aiding in their recruitment & fund raising efforts. There is nothing bigoted about opposing the Mosque on these grounds.
Is there any reason to support the Mosque that is not demagogic? LibTards claim constitutional grounds of religious liberty while in fact, they seek the votes of Muslims while they calumniate conservatives. If their conduct is not demagogic, what is?
How can it be unconstitutional to deny the enemy, which has declared and is prosecuting asymmetrical warfare against us, the "right" to plant their flag of triumph and erect a recruiting center at ground zero? The First Amendment's free exercise clause protects legitimate religions, not mercenary & martial war cults which seek to subvert our system and enslave us.
Potter exposes abysmal ignorance of Islam.
Islam is intolerant. It demands a global monopoly on faith & practice. Cursing us begins in the last two ayat of the first surah. Allah commands warfare against us in the ninth surah, and immediately thereafter curses us. Convinced they can win? Allah had to reduce a promised 10: kill ration to 2:1 because the Muslims could not cut the mustard. So "fundamentalism" is a response to our modernity? LibTards might suffer less embarrassment if they would research before they write.
The Qur'an is given and accepted as the literal word of Allah, passed to Moe through Jibril. It is given as the perfected, final word. "...This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islâm as your religion.... " What part of that don't the LibTards comprehend? Moe had something definitive to say about the issue. "Allah will raise for this community at the end of every hundred years the one who will renovate its religion for it. ".
LibTards can not comprehend the fact that Moe's preaching & practice set the standard of Islam, Muslims are commanded to obey what he preached and emulate what he did. Offensive conquest, genocide & terrorism are normative Islam, not extremism.
Potter is generous in exposing his irrationality.
Potter is was not satisfied with that, he continued exposing his irrationality and ignorance.
A Muslim who can afford them is allowed to have four wives. That special privilege, in addition to their large population base, gives them a high reproduction rate. They can and will out breed us as they are doing to Europe.
Our culture is superior, but LibTards can't admit that fact. They are hung up on multiculturalism, blindly assuming that all cultures are equal. They resist any and all attempts to protect and preserve our culture. What happened to the Christian and Zoroastrian cultures in Persia, Ethiopia, and other cultures in the surrounding region? What happened to the Hindu & Buddhist cultures in India?
Was Churchill conservative? Did he have confidence in his culture?
