You've Come a Long Way, Baby: Nancy Goes To Syria



The double irony of this photo is not merely Nancy Pelosi, who had billed herself as the most powerful woman in America, subjugating herself for entry into the Umayyad Mosque. What Nancy Pelosi is doing is looking at the supposed head of John the Baptist, a looted Christian artifact, displayed in a Muslim mosque. That isn't a notion that would ever enter Pelosi's head, but it's certainly one that's apparent to any Muslim who views the spectacle of one of the political leaders of a Christian country smiling and nodding along at the theft of one of her religion's holiest relics.

The Umayyad or Omayyad mosque is built over the ruins of a Christian Church dedicated to John the Baptist that was torn down by Muslims and replaced with a mosque. When Muslims talk about Jews, Christians and Muslims living in peace once, that is the kind of "peace" they mean. A peace where domestic Christians, Hindus and Jews are persecuted, their holy places torn down and replaced by Mosques, just as Joseph's tomb was and just as the Temple Mount is.

And a peace where delegates from the Western world smile and tour the grounds with no clue that they're nodding along to the destruction of their own heritage and humiliation of their own religion. In one visit Pelosi had managed to acquiesce not only to the degradation of her own gender and country, but also her religion. A true triple score.

After her visit, Islamic Jihad leader Khaled Al-Batch proclaimed that, "If the Democrats want to make negotiations with Syria, Hamas, and Hizbullah, this means the Democratic Party understands well what happens in this area and I think Pelosi will succeed. ... I hope she wins the next elections...I think the Democratic Party can do things the best."

Abu Abdullah, a leader of Hamas' military wing in the Gaza Strip, said the willingness by some lawmakers to talk with Syria "is proof of the importance of the resistance against the US.

"The Americans know and understand they are losing in Iraq and the Middle East and that their only chance to survive is to reduce hostilities with Arab countries and with Islam. Islam is the new giant of the world," he said.

Jihad Jaara, a senior member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group and the infamous leader of the 2002 siege of Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity said, "All the American people must make peace with Syria and Iran and with Hamas."


And there it is in a nutshell. The Democratic path to peace. Surrender to the terrorists. Smile, smile and then smile some more. If they trash your churches, smile politely. Wear whatever they tell you to wear and march along.

Well, honestly - thanks for saying this. I asked my husband today: what is John the Baptist's head doing in a mosque, and have not had time to check it out. I know Islam says it revers Moses - but John the Baptist! It must be something like the the bearded lady in the circus.

Pelosi's actions are deplorable but certainly not surprising.

It's good to be reading your interesting posts again. My computer is just back up and I'm attempting to catch up.

She should be impeached for this act of treason.

Sultan Knish said...

yes she should be impeached

there was a church of st john at the site, the church was demolished, the head was apparently found in the ruins and placed in the mosque

islam appropriates everyone's holy figures, as much as they can and pronounces them muslims... it's routine for them

You're absolutley right.

And just as some murderers keep trophies from their victims, Muslims are keeping trophies of the religions they hold contempt for. John the Baptist's head is one example of it. Just consider the circumstances leading to his beheading:

Salome was the daughter of Herodias and stepdaughter of Herod Antipas, ruler of Galilee. John the Baptist had condemned the marriage of Herodias and Herod Antipas, as Herodias was the divorced wife of Antipas's half brother Philip. Enraged, Herod imprisoned John, but feared to have him killed. Herodias, however, was not satisfied with John's incarceration and pressed her daughter Salome to "seduce" her stepfather Herod with a dance, making him promise to give her whatever she wished. At her mother's request Salome asked for the head of John the Baptist on a platter. Herod did her bidding, and Salome brought the platter to her mother.

Putting John's head in a mosque is by no means a sign of respect or reverence for what John the Baptist symbolizes to Christians--it's a trophy of the murder of a figure of great significance to Christians.

To Christians St. John is revered as the man who baptized J. To Muslims its the head of someone murdered through a scheme.
That's why they keep it there.

They don't revere the head of John the Baptist as an important artifact anymore than the Taliban respected those giant Buddha statues in Afghanistan that they blew up and the people that openly wept when they were destroyed.

But Muslims go on a violent tirade if someone mishandles a Koran, or even if they hear a rumor that someone did.

Should menopausal women be allowed in power?

Should there be tests performed for senility on old politicians?

No, leave her in until 2008 so that she can continue to show the Demagogues for what they are.

And now we have a whole host of endorsements for the Demagoguic Jihad!
