Raymond Ibrahim: The Ultimate Source of Islamic Hate for Infidels

icons desecrated[Via CBN News]

Who is ultimately responsible for the ongoing attacks on Christians and their churches throughout the Islamic world?

Focusing on one of the most obvious nations where Christians are regularly targeted—Egypt’s Coptic Christians—one finds that the “mob” is the most visible and obvious culprit.  One Copt accused of some transgression against Muslim sensibilities—from having relations with a Muslim woman, to ruining a Muslim man’s shirt—is often enough to prompt Muslim mobs to destroy entire Christian villages and their churches.

Recently, for example, after her cross identified Mary Sameh George as a Christian, a pro-Muslim Brotherhood mob attacked, beat, and slaughtered her.

However, a recent Arabic op-ed titled “Find the True Killer of Mary” looks beyond the mob to identify the true persecutor of Christians in Egypt. According to it:

Those who killed the young and vulnerable Mary Sameh George, for hanging a cross in her car, are not criminals, but rather wretches who follow those who legalized for them murder, lynching, dismemberment, and the stripping bare of young Christian girls—without every saying “kill.”  [Islamic cleric] Yassir Burhami and his colleagues who announce their hate for Christians throughout satellite channels and in mosques—claiming that hatred of Christians is synonymous with love for God—they are the true killers who need to be tried and prosecuted…  The slayers of Mary Sameh are simply a wretched mob, with the body of a bull but the brain of a worm.  It’s not the puppets on the string who need punishing, but rather the mastermind who moves the puppets with his bloody fingers behind closed curtains that needs punishing.

One fact certainly validates this Arabic op-ed’s assertions: the overwhelming majority of attacks on Christians in Egypt and other Muslim nations—including the slaughter of Mary Sameh George—occur on Friday, the one day of the week that Muslims congregate in mosques for communal prayers and to hear sermons.

The significance of this fact can easily be understood by analogy: what if Christians were especially and consistently violent to non-Christian minorities on Sunday—right after they got out of church?  What would that say about what goes on in Christian churches?

What does it say about what goes on in Muslim mosques?

The Arabic op-ed also does well to name Sheikh Yassir al-Burhami as one of those who “announce their hate for Christians throughout the satellite channels and in mosques, claiming that hatred of Christians is synonymous with love for God.”

For example, Dr. Burhami—the face of Egypt’s Salafi movement—once issued a fatwa, or Islamic edict, forbidding Muslim taxi- and bus-drivers from transporting Coptic Christian priests to their churches, which he depicted as “more forbidden than taking someone to a liquor bar.”

As for hating non-Muslim “infidels,” many Islamic clerics, especially Salafis, believe that the doctrine of “Loyalty and Enmity” (or wala’ wa bara’) commands Muslims never to befriend or be loyal to non-Muslims.

Burhami himself appears on video asserting that if a Muslim man marries a Christian or Jewish woman (known in Islamic parlance as “People of the Book”)—even he must still hate his wife, because she is an infidel… Keep reading

    Muslim sensibilities is an oxymoron.

    Why is it that the world is so scared of these bullies? Are we going to give them our lunch money forever?

        Yes, we must keep the faith, but trying to educate unbelievers, extreme leftists is an act of futility.

    because love is Un-Islamic…

      unless it is a “boy toy” or the love of killing, robbing, raping, lying and pedophilia, unto mohammad, piss be upon him.

    \\It’s not the puppets on the string who need punishing, but rather the mastermind who moves the puppets with his bloody fingers behind closed curtains that needs punishing.\\

    In other words, mahometans have no moral responsibility for their violent acts or rational mind to resist their murderous urges. It’s always someone else’s fault who put the idea in their heads.

    This sounds to me like the “racism of low expectations”.

    The real source of the hate , malice and violence of so many Muslims towards other people is the Quran,as in for example Sura 9:11. 47:4. An interesting side note is the much of this Islamic evil and madness is described ,in part, in the Bible in the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes 9:3. Which reads “The hearts of men are full of evil and there is madness in their hearts while they live, and afterwards they join the dead.” [N.I.V.]

      When Pope Benedict spoke, Christians (all denominations) got killed. The terrorists can’t tell the difference between denominations. They could care less.

      The Pope’s effectiveness ends with talking to politicians behind closed doors. ‘Standing up to Islam’ gets people killed.

    Morsi friendly jihad deaf NPR would have to admit they were wrong all along if they acknowledge the persecution of Christians in Egypt.

    Instead they are running around-the-clock coverage about the so-called evils of Russia which is threatening to block one of Islam’s back-door corridors into Europe Ukraine accomplishing two goals at once. Pandering to Muslims and ignoring Christians.

    “…Dr. Burhami—the face of Egypt’s Salafi movement—…”

    The good news:
    Al Noor party – the political arm of the Salafi movement – , as well as ALL other islamic parties, do not dare present any islamic candidate in the next presidential elections. They KNOW the people of Egypt has had enough with islamic parties.
    In Egypt, political islam is dead. Problem is…it’s moving West!!!
