Subject: BS: More Muslim Intolerance (2)
From: robomatic
Date: 01 Jun 05 - 06:27 PM

I have a slow computer, and I also perceive that the original Muslim Intolerance thread has drifted somewhat from the act of inception, which was the brutal street murder of Theo Van Gogh.

I want to bring forth some more current events, the airing of yet another "elders of Zion" type theme on Arab daytime TV:

Jordanian Soap Opera - Jews Using Voodoo To Destroy Muhammed


and a relatively new story of an attempt to sue Oriana Fallaci based on her critique of radical Muslims.

Oriana Fallaci

It's pretty important to restate that Islam as a religion is like its sister religions, Judaism and Christianity. All have within them seeds of intolerance, and one can't denigrate one without looking to see if one is perhaps turning a blind eye toward one's more habitual spiritual haunts.

Having said that, I belive it is possible that the murder of Theo Van Gogh and acts of anti-semitism in France, the Madrid bombings, and a lack of a counter-clerical movement in European Islam has probably had a hand in the current no votes toward the European constitution in France and the Netherlands.

Having said that, we are also experiencing a war within Islam between the hidebound orthodox clerics, and those who, like the leaders of the Enlightenment in Europe, wish to free the minds of their followers.

Thanks for the interesting link to the soap opera. Though we all know that in principle nothing is real in these TV-stories they show the prejudices prevalant in the respective society. The other story however is something different.

Smith vs. Fallaci:
That's two hotheads and (here) not to be taken serious people in a clash. Funny to watch but nothing serious.

The part Scottish part Egyptian part Italian Mr. Smith is a late convert to Islam know for his physical force attacks on Christian symbols and on dissenting guests in talkshows. He has sued already everybody from a simple teacher to the old and the new pope (when Ratzinger wasn't pope yet). His many (often lost) court cases can be considered a real job-creation measure for the Italian legal profession. That's just his most recent approach to pick a fight with a celebrity.

Fallaci, the famous journalist, fighter against fascism, once extremely left-liberal, who has interviewed everybody famous in 'Arabia' even when no Western politician talked to them, is now close to death from cancer. She has recently (after 9/11) written in a great hurry two books about the threat of Islam to Europe. "Camelfuckers" who are "breeding like rats", "urinate on our monuments", "shit on our churchyards" and make Europe a "Eurabia" give an impression about her anger and style in these books. There's nothing more left of her former liberal attempt to understand other people that once has made her journalism famous. The left has been embarrassed by these books. "Fuck you" was her public comment when hearing about Smith sueing her.

Funny to watch I said above, but perhaps I should have said 'Sad to watch'. She'll probably die before the case is heard and Smith'll be looking for the next target.

Recent newspaper editorial comment:

SO,WHERE'S THE RIOT?

On Friday,May 27,at least eighteen people were killed and several dozen wounded when a suicide bomber detonated himself at a crowed Muslin shrine on the outskirts of Islamabad.Altough the identity of the bomber is unknown,it is widely believed the attack is yet another chapter in the long-running battle between Pakistan's Sunni and Shiite Muslim extremists.
Given recent eventa,we would have expected the attack to set off riots all over the Islamic world,with Muslims outraged at the senseless death of their co-religionists.But these riots,strangely,did not materialize.Apparently,a rumor that the bomb had knocked a copy of the Koran into a toilet bowl proved unfounded.

For those who don't read the contents of links, this is an excerpt of a Fatwa that was issued on the subject of whether or not American Muslims can fight on behalf of the United States in Muslim countries and still be good Muslims. The particular "Muhammad" in question in this case is the first ever Muslim Chaplain of the United States Army, Abdul-Rasheed Muhammad...

(21:07) Reading from Fatwa

The fatwa, a legal opinion concerning Islamic law, was issued by Muhammad's religious endorser, Taha Jabir Alwani, an Islamic scholar at the School of Islamic and Social Sciences in Leesburg, Virginia � an academy that certifies the religious credentials of those applying to be Muslim chaplains in the armed forces. Read the September 27, 2001 fatwa [English � Arabic] written by prominent scholars from Egypt, Syria, the United States, and Qatar � including a noted critic of U.S. military operations in the Middle East, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Grand Islamic Scholar and Chairman of the Sunna and Sira Council in Qatar. Here is a translated excerpt from that edict:

    "The Muslim (soldier) must perform his duty in this fight despite the feeling of uneasiness of "fighting without discriminating." His intention (niyya) must be to fight for enjoining of the truth and defeating falsehood. It's to prevent aggression on the innocents, or to apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to justice. It's not his concern what other consequences of the fighting that might result in his personal discomfort, since he alone can neither control it nor prevent it. Furthermore, all deeds are accounted (by God) according to the intentions. God (the Most High) does not burden any soul except what it can bear. In addition, Muslim jurists have ruled that what a Muslim cannot control he cannot be held accountable for, as God (the Most High) says: "And keep your duty to God as much as you can." 64:16. The prophet (prayer and peace be upon him) said: "when I ask of you to do something, do it as much as you can." The Muslim here is a part of a whole, if he absconds, his departure will result in a greater harm, not only for him but also for the Muslim community in his country � and here there are many millions of them. Moreover, even if fighting causes him discomfort spiritually or psychologically, this personal hardship must be endured for the greater public good, as the jurisprudence (fiqhi) rule states.

To sum up, it's acceptable � God willing � for the Muslim American military personnel to partake in the fighting in the upcoming battles, against whomever, their country decides, has perpetrated terrorism against them. Keeping in mind to have the proper intention as explained earlier, so no doubts would be cast about their loyalty to their country, or to prevent harm to befall them as might be expected. This is in accordance with the Islamic jurisprudence rules which state that necessities dictate exceptions, as well as the rule that says one may endure a small harm to avoid a much greater harm."

John 'Giok' MacKenzie, I refer you, yet once again, to this thread:

http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=79000

Using facts in a selective manner in order to smear an entire group with the wrongs committed by some members of that group is a form of intolerance (Joe Offer called it bigotry on the thread in the link I provided). And doing it over and over and over and over and over, ad infinitem, serves the purpose of actively promoting intolerance toward the group in question. Perhaps you can't see beyond your own agenda in order to understand this. GUEST,Clarence's post takes that tactic and adds another level of intolerance based not on the truth, but on a distortion of events promoted by people with an unmistakably intolerant agenda.

I was just thinking yesterday that this thread could be re-titled Moslem Tolerence, it could then become a discussion as to why the majority of moslems who believe in the Koran and its' teachings, are not up in arms like the rest of us condemning the actions of the militant minority. As Edmund Burke almost said "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." Are they becoming like the Catholic church, or even some police forces, more concerned with maintaining the image of their organisation than in weeding out the rotten apples contained in their particular barrel?

The Muslims probably feel like a persecuted majority, much as the Pat Robertsons and Jerry Falwells of America. The 100% Muslim nation of Saudi Arabia, where it is death to try and convert a Muslim, and the many overweening majorities of Yemen, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Azerbaijan, Usbekistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkmenistan.

This is an assumption and not based on fact. And it is an example of one of the more insidious kinds of intolerance (or possibly bigotry) towards Muslims that we see in the West. Just because you haven't heard about them doing what you mention doesn't mean they aren't doing it. It just means that the sources you go to for news and information are ignoring it when it does happen.

And most people couldn't be bothered to take the time to find out for themselves, because of their own intolerance toward Muslims.

Many, many groups besides Muslims have training camps for "terrorists/insurgents/freedom fighters/guerilla fighers", etc. Whether or not the governments of countries like the US recognize them as "terrorists" really depends on whether or not the US is using them to further their own agendas. Often, when the US is using these people as proxy fighters, the government of the US refers to them as "freedom fighters" or as "rebels". The only thing that determines whether or not they will be labeled as "terrorists" is whether or not they are useful to the US government.

In the case of Muslims, at this point in time, the US government's agenda is better served by calling Muslims terrorists rather than any of the other names they could be using. Back when the US was using Muslims in Afghanistan as proxy fighters against the Soviet Union, the government of the US had other, more benign names for them. And of course, many of those very same people, trained by the US in Afghanistan, and doing the bidding of the US there (Osama bin Laden being the most well know of these), are now considered "terrorists". It's all the same thing, though. Just different spin.

That's bullshit. Comparing armies of organized countries to a religious group of Islamic-facists with no other motive than to cause terror and not PROTECT a recognized country but to rid the world of "infidels" shows what kind of a moron you are and shows that you cross the line with your tolerance crap.

Tolerance has limits. Tolerance is NOT open-ended. Tolerance is not the answer to terrorists. Tolerance for the sake of tolerance does not have to automatically be..................tolerated.
