Whatever You Do, Don't Upset the Muslims

It seems lately as if all our laws can be reduced to one single law, "Whatever You Do, Don't Upset the Muslims."

9/11 proved that defending ourselves against terrorism takes a backseat to Muslim sensitivities. The cartoon controversy proved that for the West, Freedom of Speech takes a backseat to offending Muslims, whether by censorship or by self-censorship. The Citibank bailout proved that we will spend 25 billion dollars to bail out a company whose two biggest shareholders are a Saudi Prince and the UAE government-- the same folks who financed Al Queda.

Sure we could have shown some backbone. Sure we could have done the right thing in all 3 cases, but it was more important not to upset the Muslims.

For Europe that attitude is almost understandable. Having filled European country after country with Algerians, Moroccans, Pakistanis and Turks, emptying the rest of the ugly bag of Muslims and Mohammeds across countries where people once reasonably expected to be able to walk through their own neighborhoods without coming across a Mosque preaching "Death to the Infidels" in screeching accents, you have two choices, drive them out or tiptoe softly past them.

The sound you hear next is hundreds of millions of people in Europe tiptoeing very softly to avoid annoying Mohammed who's busy beating his wife while listening to taped lectures from his favorite Imam on how to beat your wife right, the Quranic way. Except the wife he's beating is actually that woman that artists like Delacroix used to draw to represent the values of liberty and the soul of the republic. It's a metaphor that Muslim rappers themselves are eager to articulate, particularly in France, symbolized by a woman and despised for it by the cockroaches infesting France's banlieues.

Europe imported its Muslims and then tried to integrate them to become one big happy family. Now Europe has accepted that it won't be wearing the pants in this marriage, and Mohammed is bringing in a horde of relatives to take over the formerly gracious manor, filling it from top to bottom with squalor, violence and hate. Drug dealing on the front porch, a car theft ring in the garage, prostitution out back, rape in the basement, burglary in the living room and a mosque in the attic reminding them all to go to prayers. That is the real face of the New Britain, the New France and the New Europe.

While Europeans occasionally dare to speak about a Muslim problem, they won't for long. If you let the cockroach problem in your house get bad enough, you stop having a cockroach problem, and the cockroaches start having a people problem. Soon enough Europe won't have a Muslim problem, Muslims will have a European problem... and if anyone wonders how they will take care of it, a short look at the way Sudan, Indonesia, not to mention most of the Middle East have taken care of their Christian problem should answer that question. Men may have qualms about killing cockroaches, but cockroaches have no qualms about killing men.

America however which still has a Muslim problem, instead of Muslims having an American problem, has imported this international case of Stockholm Syndrome. No Muslims had to riot to insure that the Danish cartoons would never appear in the American press, unless censored in a way usually reserved for obscene images. The press did it themselves, bowing their heads to Mecca and following that supreme law which has now displaced court and constitution, Thou Shalt Not Offend the Muslim.

Stockholm Syndrome or A Bad Case of the Dhimmis, means that anyone who offends a Muslim is at fault. Take a Muslim off a plane when he acts suspiciously, and it's the fault of the airlines for not wanting their planes to be run into New York landmarks. Draw a cartoon a Muslim doesn't like, and it's a clear case of provocation. Hang an Israeli flag in your window while a bloodthirsty mob of Turks bays for Jewish blood in Berlin, and the police will come in and take it out. Because it isn't the Muslim mob that's at fault. You are.

If mobs of white men and women gathered in major American cities holding up posters and chanting "Kill All Jews" and "Go Back to the Ovens", there would be nationwide outrage and condemnation. But when Muslims do it, the press has nothing to say about it, except that Israel fighting terrorists inside its own borders and working to rescue its own soldiers held hostage, is to blame.

Before All Else, Thou Shalt Not Offend the Muslim. Even when he's trying to kill you. Especially when he's trying to kill you.

It isn't just in Berlin, or Paris. It's in New York City too.

I went back to my apartment where I met my boyfriend who had also just returned from the second Pro Israel rally on 39th Street & 7th Avenue. We walked outside the building and across a major midtown avenue on the West Side to buy some groceries. He was still carrying the Israeli flag and we were both wearing baseball caps with the American flag and USA on the brims. A large number of Muslims were milling around since it seems that their rally had reached its end point and was dispersing. Six Muslim men were being photographed with posters with the words, "Praise Hamas and Hezbollah, Reopen the Ovens" and were taking photos of themselves and their posters. Seeing us with the Israel flag, they began screaming, “You’re assholes, Kill the Jews, We are going to kill you, This is OUR country," etc.

That's the West Side, not Oslo or London or a suburb in France. But it's not just New York City. It's also Charlotte, North Carolina.

On Sunday, January 11, 2008 a portion of my daughter's youth group from church attended a Christian concert festival called "Winter Jam" at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was expected to be a great time and it was once they entered the building. Unfortunately the group of ten to twelve year old children paid for their moment of fellowship and worship with every step they took towards the entrance.

When the youth group tried to enter the event, they were surrounded by a group of "Palestinian" protesters against Israel. The protesters surrounded the American children, screamed profanity and called them horrible names such as "baby murderers," while waving signs of what was portrayed as "mangled" children from "Palestine." In order to enter, the children had to be surrounding by adult chaperons and pushed through.

Instead of the police department honoring my request, I was left on the phone and bounced from one employee to another. I eventually landed on the phone with a police representative who called himself "Dante" and refused to give a last name. In lieu of filing a report, "Dante" talked to me like a two year old and declared that the protesters where "well within their rights" and that it was "their freedom" to do these things. I was eventually bounced on to another person by "Dante" before my telephone finally went dead.

And it's Ft Lauderdale, and all across America. The latest round of fighting in Gaza has given Muslims a chance to show off their hate, and to test how far they will be allowed to go. So far the message they've been given is "Clear Sailing".

Our advantage over Europe is that we have more time to prepare. But time is a finite quantity. In spirit and in their pocketbooks, America's leaders have already bowed their heads to Mecca. As Europe has demonstrated, the rest quickly becomes a legal formality.

Watch the immigration floodgates open, as the Democrats work to solve the Red State problem by importing the Third World into formerly conservative states. Wait a few years until Obama nominates Noah Feldman, the architect of the Iraqi constitution, and America's biggest promoter of Sharia law, to the United States Supreme Court, to replace his mentor Justice David Souter. The worst is yet to come, and it's happening because we refuse to be offensive, we fear to shout the truth and stand up to the political thugs who have seized control of our culture and are leading us and our civilization in a Death March toward the sea.

Free people do not fear giving offense, because freedom of speech is one of the core freedoms that any open society values. It is slaves who learn to fear giving offense, who carefully watch their masters, learning what they can say and what they cannot. When free people learn to fear their words, they learn to be slaves.

Whatever you do, don't just upset the Muslims... make them mad as hell.

Citibank bailout is bad? I hope you're no more sympathetic or supportive of auto bailout!

Awesome piece. In Chgo only the Pali's received coverage in the papers regarding the Jan. 2 rally-our pro-Israel contingency was not mentioned. The local media provided better coverage of the Jan. 9 rallies.

No one should be bailed out in a decent economy.
If you fail at business, you fail.
Just as if you fail at life you fail . No one bails you out of anything.
These businesses ruined themselves, let them pay a penalty and let the buyer beware.
Now give new entrepreneurs the chance to start good solid businesses and let the economy seek its own level.

What never ceases to amaze me is that the same people who moan and groan when J Witnesses are at their doors on a Saturday morning trying to preach their religion are suddenly mute when it comes to Muslims not only infringing on their rights but outright threatening them.

We're going to see an extreme reaction. The people who hide in their houses and peak from their windows because J Witnesses are are at the door will cave in to Islamic intimidation so easily.

I never could get why people feel the need to hide in their houses until the Witnesses left. I just walk out, tell them I have my own religion and if they get overly persistent tell them to get the (*&^ away from me.

I'd stand up to a Muslim, too.

To Anon: same in Buffalo. The pro-Palestinian rallies have received coverage. Nothing for the pro-Israel rally organized by the Jewish Federation and Temple Beth Zion.

The local peace group Western New York Peace Center is publizing the Pally Rallies but 1. not indicating the the college students protesting are from the college's Muslim organization and 2. saying they want an end to the violence in Gaza but silence on the end to violence in Israel.

I sent them an email and am still waiting for a response. Not that'll they'll respond but I still feel the need to let them know they're not pulling the wool over my eyes.

We need to stop Muslims from immigrating into the United States. You can sign a petition to that effect here.

The higher their population, the harder it is for politicians to ignore their very unified vote on any issue. The U.S. is in a better position than most other countries because right now the Muslim population in the U.S. is fairly low. We need to stop it while we can.

Even if the stopping Muslim immigration proves to be impossible, the attempt to achieve it will bring an important discussion into the public forum in a powerful way.

to Keli Ata:
I emailed the Trib and friends who participated at the rally.
Amazing, isn't it?

Here in europe the pali's and their leftist allies Antifa openly shows banners with "jews to the ovens", flags with swastikas and placing mock Zyklon B-cans outside synagogues. Whatever you do, don't make the same mistake as us, unless you want crime rates to skyrocket through the roof! Importing muslims means: more violence, gangrapes, robberies, murders, arsons and more vandalism. They demand all this and all that but gives nothing in return, except crimes against you. They want gender segregated public baths, schools etc. Don't make your country a third world dungheap like eurabia.

Muslim outrage

At first, the Muslims were outraged by cartoons but I didn't speak up because I wasn't an artist.

And then the Muslims were outraged by history books and news but I didn't speak up because I don't read much.
And then the Muslims were outraged by women who weren't completely veiled but I didn't speak up because I'm not a woman.

And then the Muslims were outraged by the practice of other religions but I didn't speak up because I'm not very religious.

And then the Muslims were outraged by the existence of Infidels so when they came for me … there was no one left to speak up.


Pay close attention to the last line because that is the ultimate goal of Islam, all the rest are just steps towards that goal.

Tabatha Kaplan said...

I agree with you totally.

Here in the UK, we are all but living in a de facto Islamic state. The Danish Cartoons did not appear in our media and woe betide anyone who tried to defend their publication in other, less cowardly nations, such as Denmark.

Last week, pro Palestinian 'rallies' (translation: riots) involved hordes of livid Muslims rampaging through the centre of London and smashing shop windows, terrorising employees and shoppers alike.

And who was to blame? Israel, apparently, for daring to defend her people and in doing so, incurring the wrath of British Muslims.

And our government are far too busy searching for their collective spine to do anything about this problem.

There will come a time when the world will remember Israel's desperate attempts to battle Islamic terrorism, and people will hang their heads in shame and regret at not supporting the Jewish state.

The more i read the more i am convinced that because of all the illegals here, the terrorists who have sneaked across our borders and the radical muslims that eventually the men in the U.S.A. are going to get a collective backbone and with some of our women helping them, there is going to be blood in the streets in the very foreseeable future. Invaders blood. Anyone ever see a woman when she starts to defend one of her children ? DO NOT get in her way.And our children are at risk of irreparable harm.

Sock it to 'em.

I have to agree with the post above. With the illegal aliens & Muslims both trying to force their wills upon the American people, I see a major backfire coming and it won't be pretty.

Felix said...

What does a poor South American coming here to work have to do with Islamic Terrorists ? That's a bit of a stretch, one comes to work,the other comes to destroy,big difference.
That being said, Europe needs to act immediately instead of throwing their hands up as if it's too late. Get organized and LOUD. If the Islamists try that crap here they'll be going to meet Allah quick ,fast, and in a hurry.....they underestimate just how much we Americans value our freedom. We're a kind and generous people but stupid or weak we are not.

Lets see them try that crap in Texas. Let them hold a rally where they know someone is likely to be carrying a gun with them.

As a European, originally Dutch but currently living in France, I have read your article with great interest.

I would not know if it would help, but to all those who might read this and are outside Europe: this article is spot on.

I am writing this only a day after a Dutch court decided to prosecute a member of Parliament for stating exactly the same as was described in this article.

We, Europeans, and I am afraid the Dutch and Belgians are frontrunners in this, are easily submitting to Islamism. We will seemingly happily throw out all we have achieved since World War II to accomodate Islam.

Unfortunately, there's much more to it then meets the eye, but nonetheless, countries like The Netherlands will, before the decade is over, be effectively Islamic states, much as Saudi-Arabia or Iran.

Looking back to my life in The Netherlands, I do see that many a "John Doe" does not condone this in any way, but our -mainly socialist- politicians cannot help but aid Muslims.

And they will go to any length to achieve this.

Attempts on his life were made in the 1990's to mr. Janmaat, a Dutch politician who warned against upcoming Islamism. Mr. Janmaat was in fact convicted in court for saying this.

Later on, in 2002, it was mr. Pim Fortuyn, who would surely have gotten Prime Minister, who was shot to death by a left wing radical.

Shortly after that, it was mr. Theo van Gogh, a decendant of the famous painter and an advocate for Freedom of Speech and warning against Islam, who was killed by a radical Muslim (of Marrocan decent, but born in Holland !).

Today, it is mr. Geert Wilders (member of Parliament), who is accused of racisme (since when is Islam a race ?) and enticing violence against others.

In fact it is the Muslim Imams (preachers) who entice violence against Western Civilisation week after week in the many mosques now to be found in Holland and in fact Europe.

It is my sincerest feeling that either we will soon have an uprising of the people against subjugation by Islam, or we will perish by Islam.

Time will tell, but I do hope the West may prevail !

There can never be a lasting peace in Palestine/Israel until there is economic peace.

whether you like it or not Israel has to give some money to Palestine, they must give them jobs. That is if they really want peace. With a security wall and a real economy why would Israel want to give Palestine anything? Blow them away to the stone age and make sure Palestinians have nothing.

Sultan Knish said...

Israel and the international community have repeatedly worked on just that, setting up industrial zones, turning over working greenhouses and a lot else. None it did any good.

The PA and its dozen of terrorist militias would routinely shake down businesses, terrorist groups are not interested in building up an economy, they're interested in promoting misery to drive their cause.

Citizen Warrior said...

There will never be a lasting peace between Israel and Palestine. It is against Islamic law to have a truce with a non-Muslim for longer than ten years, and even then only for the purpose of gaining more military strength.

Let's Give "Giving Up On Peace" a chance.
