It seems as if the capacity for self-delusion on the part of some supporters of the global jihad is boundless, as evidenced by these two hate emails that just came in:
why is their so much hatred in your website? chill-out please.
Its ignorant people like u that the gloabalists use to fuel their
Or maybe you are an arm of the establishment that creates fictional
characters like osama bin laden etc.
Religion has been used for CENTURIES by evil people for their own
puposes. Osama Bin Laden is a bad person proably a by product of our
intelligence agencies. Im sure he’s still working for them. Please
dont contribute to all the garbage out there.
That one is another example of the recurring tendency to ascribe “hate” to those who report on the words and deeds of people like Osama, rather than admit — to themselves, as well as to others — that the hate comes from the jihadists, and that they are not creations of the CIA, but are themselves responsible for the evil they have done.
Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan are BRUTAL OPPRESSIVE DICTATORSHIPS! Indonesia and Malaysia are PROGRESSIVE MODERATE DEMOCRATIC MUSLIM NATIONS! STOP SLANDERING THEM! STATES LIKE Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan WILL LEAD TO MORE TERROR NOT LESS! ROBERT SPENCER YOU ARE AN IMBECILE!
INDONESIA AND MALAYSIA ARE PROGRESSIVE ASIAN MUSLIM DEMOCRACIES!!! GET THAT IN YOUR THICK SKULL!!!
That one came in with this return email address: “Robertspencerisobsessedwithsladeringdemocraticindonesia@jew.com.”
I must confess that I have been able to drop off to sleep on the odd night without thinking about Indonesia, but in a certain sense it’s true: I have no respect for a regime that tolerates the jihad murder of as many as 10,000 Christians.
And as for “jew.com,” it becomes tiresome to repeat it, as it is so frequently a bit of knee-jerk paranoia on the part of the defenders of Islamic jihad: that anyone who opposes them must be Jewish. This paranoia about the Jews is nourished by the Qur’an’s portrayal of them as crafty, untrustworthy — and accursed. And of course today jihadists would have us believe that the trouble between Muslims and non-Muslims is all because of Israel.
I am not in fact Jewish. Nor are Victor Davis Hanson or Paul Marshall, who have told me that they too have been labeled Jewish by Muslims after writing about Islamic jihad. One day perhaps such Muslim writers will wake up to the fact that the jihad ideology and the depredations of dhimmitude have won them a considerably larger spectrum of opponents than they care to imagine.
