Israeli police arrested a fourth person for calling Mohammed a pig. Avia Morris, the first person arrested described being taunted with cries of “Allahu Akbar” and “Kill the Jews” along with signs of support for ISIS. But it only became a legal matter when the twenty-year-old woman retorted, “Mohammed is a pig.”
Calling for the death of infidels isn’t a crime. Insulting Mohammed is.
Avia got off lucky. When a young woman named Tatiana Soskin drew Mohammed as a pig scrawling in a Koran, the Clinton administration was more outraged by this than by the World Trade Center bombing.
Its spokesman said that it gave “great thought to this… at the very highest levels of our government.”
denounced the “outrageous, crude and sick portrayal of the Prophet
Mohammed” and claimed, “This woman is either sick or she is evil… she
deserves to be put on trial for these outrageous attacks on Islam.”
rant didn’t come from some storefront Mullah or Bin Laden clutching his
assault rifle in a cave on an Al Jazeera video. It came from the
twisted mind of a sick and evil appeasement administration.
and evil might have been a better description of Mohammed’s practice of
sex slavery than of a young woman who drew a cartoon of a rapist as a
pig. When the Caliph of the Islamic State was revealed to have taken
American hostage Kayla Mueller as his slave, he was following the law of
As ISIS put it, "Enslaving the families of the kuffar
(non-Muslims) and taking their women as concubines is a firmly
established aspect of the Shariah (Islamic law) that if one were to deny
or mock, he would be denying or mocking the verses of the Koran and the
narrations of the Prophet.”
Was Mohammed a pig? He raped a little
girl, forced his son to divorce his slave wife so he could have her,
and took a number of captured non-Muslim women as slaves the same way
the ISIS Caliph did. Their numbers included a number of captured Jewish
women, Safiyah and Rayhana, as well as Arab women such as Juwayriyah.
Rape and sexual slavery was a way of life for Mohammed and his men.
any civilized standard, Mohammed was a pig and worse. And yet instead
of calling out those who praise a rapist and a pedophile, we lock up the
young women who dare call out his piggishness.
There is no reason to be surprised that these piggish habits should also be a way of life for his followers.
As we consider the fate of Kayla
Mueller or of the thousands of girls groomed to be sex slaves to Muslim
men in the UK, we must conclude that what happened to them took place
because our societies have failed to tell the truth about Mohammed.
response to Muslim violence has been greater extremes of censorship.
There is a direct connection between the amount of protective censorship
imposed on any criticism of Islam and Islamic violence. The Clinton
administration rant about Tatiana’s cartoon took place after the World
Trade Center bombing. And yet it would have been unthinkable then to
lock up a Mohammed filmmaker, as Hillary and Obama did after the
Benghazi massacre. Each new atrocity creates new momentum for
The Israeli police behave the way they do because the
authorities are desperate to keep some kind of peace and it is always
easier to censor, arrest and control non-Muslims than Muslims. That is
also why the authorities in European countries are far more willing to
lock up those who burn the Koran or criticize Islam than the Salafis who
patrol the streets as Sharia police and call for a Caliphate.
This is not tolerance. It’s appeasement. It’s cowardice and treason.
are in a race between collapsing systems struggling to prop up an
impossible situation despite the outbursts of violence and those who
tell the truth about them. The worse the situation becomes, the more the
systems will try to retain control through censorship. Unable to
control the followers of Mohammed, they will instead seek to control
those who tell the truth about him.
Telling the truth will become more dangerous, but it will also save lives.
Kayla Mueller had known the truth about Mohammed, she might never have
gone to Syria. If more mothers and fathers in the UK had known the truth
about Mohammed, they might have been better able to protect their
daughters. If more people in America and Europe knew about Mohammed,
they might demand that their governments let fewer migrants in who
believe Mohammed is a role model.
What is happening in the Islamic
State is only a more open version of what is already taking place in
the West. Slavery has returned to America, not under the Confederate
flag, but under the Saudi flag. The Muslim sex grooming in the UK does
not come with its own flag, but with the Koran. And Muslims in this
country continue to try and bring non-Muslim women out of this country
to serve ISIS.
The Yazidi little girls
enslaved by ISIS, just as little girls in the UK were enslaved by Muslim
migrants, were told by their captors that raping them was a prayer to
“According to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever,” a twelve-year-old girl was told. “He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to Allah.”
Islam spreads across the West, we are all drawing closer to Allah.
Portions of cities go dark and become no-go zones. Terrible things
happen there that no one talks about. It’s important to talk about them.
But it’s also important to talk about what ties together the little
girls in the Islamic State and the United Kingdom, the slave trade of
over a thousand years and Mohammed’s wives.
And that is Mohammed.
Mohammed was a pig. We can and should say it. As many times as it takes.
He is not a role model. He is not a prophet. It’s not the women who
call him a pig who are sick and evil.
It’s those who imitate and defend his sick and evil ways.
Telling the truth about Mohammed is more than a statement. It’s not a mere provocation. It saves lives.
