The Head of the Arab League Agrees with Me !

Arab League chief says cartoons part of anti-Islam battle
(DPA)27 February 2006 AMMAN - Arab League Secretary General Amr Mussa on Monday considered the Prophet Mohammed’s cartoons as part of a “battle against Islam” rather than a symptom of conflict among civilizations, and urged Arab parliamentarians to put pressure on the United Nations to come up with a “strict” solution to this problem.
As I said before, our most important weapon is our freedom of speech, because without it we cannot bring the others to bear. Amr understands this too. This is why he would like our freedom of speech taken away by an enlightened UN.

“I don’t think the issue pertains to an inter-civilization conflict. We have to mention the issue in its real perspective - it is a battle against Islam,” Mussa said at the opening session of the Arab Parliamentary Union (APU) conference at the Dead Sea resort in Jordan.

We agree again ! Amr thinks that there is a battle against Islam, at least its unreconstructed, literalist mainstream Sunni and Shia varieties. Well, the nasty anti-Western militant kind of Islam certainly seems to be doing its best to create a battle against itself at the moment, and poor ole moderate Muslims are being forced to choose sides. It is an interesting matter to investigate how much closer the Muslim mainstream is to their militants than they are to us... Amr does not think that this is a clash of civilisations and I agree, the clash is between Civilisation and Islamic Barbarism. We agree on so much, but we just support different teams.
A war with Islam. All those poor moderate Muslims caught in the middle...
This also goes back to the old question "what is a moderate Muslim anyway" ? Red Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London (currently suspended for making anti-Semitic comments, but back in the saddle in a month's time) invited this guy to England as his personal pal. Sheikh al-Qaradawi is a moderate muslim because... Ummm... Well... He thinks that there should be no suicide bombing except in "Palestine". And homosexuals should be killed. And so should apostates. Never mind, he is still best friends with Anti-Semitic Leftie London Mayor Ken. This may be because the definition of "moderate" has never been nailed down unambigously, and still leaves much to be desired. It is in fact merely a means of rehabilitating an ideology which is extremist in the broad sense, while marginalising some token members, the most extreme of the extreme. The more numerous, influential and still very dangerous ones are thus rehabilitated. The key question is:
Moderate with respect to what ? - Moderate with respect to Islam is not the yardstick we should be using. Moderate should be with respect to Civilisation. The yardstick is actually quite simple: Does the candidate for the label "moderate" agree that the rule of law of a secular state takes precendence over Islamic Law in all matters? Simple. How many moderates do we have now ?

They fight us with Judaism, so we should fight them with Islam. They fight us with the Torah, so we should fight them with the Koran. If they say "the Temple," we should say "the Al-Aqsa Mosque." If they say: "We glorify the Sabbath," we should say: "We glorify the Friday." This is how it should be. Religion must lead the war. This is the only way we can win.

<...>

Everything will be on our side and against Jews on , at that time, even the stones and the trees will speak, with or without words, and say: "Oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim, there's a Jew behind me, come and kill him." They will point to the Jews. It says "servant of Allah," not "servant of desires," "servant of women," "servant of the bottle," "servant of Marxism," or "servant of liberalism"... It said servant of Allah."When the Muslims, the Arabs, and the Palestinians enter a war, they do it to worship Allah. They enter it as Muslims. The hadith says: "Oh Muslim." It says "oh Muslim," not "oh Palestinian, Jordanian, Syrian, or Arab nationalist." No, it says: "Oh Muslim." When we enter under the banner of Islam, and under the banner of serving Allah, we will be victorious.

Nice. Remeber, this guy is a "moderate", a key face of international Islam . And then they complain about some war being declared AGAINST Islam...
Meanwhile, in "Moderate" Turkey with its now established Islamist government, Mein Kampf is a best-seller, and the anti-Semitic, anti-American film "Iraq-Valley of the Wolves" is the number one film, the most expensive Turkish production even made. Viewers in Germany have jumped up at the end of the film and shouted "Allahu Akbar".
In "Moderate" Indonesia new laws are tabled to placate a growing Islamic movement (all moderates ! really!) that will clamp down on public displays of affection, adultery and revealing clothing. If it passes, say goodbye to the Bali holiday...
