DC Watson discusses the disgraceful dhimmitude that has attended the Newsweek Qur’an hoax:
The American Government was all set to summon Sherlock Homes and Inspector Clouseau to Guantanamo Bay: Word was out that someone had placed a Qur’an on the toilet. Or was it in the toilet? Did it even happen?
Actually, once again, an irresponsible report was produced by our media that has resulted in more than a dozen unnecessary deaths at the hands of rioting Muslims.
Apparently these fools have no idea how easily an erroneous report like this incites a group of people who are not known for being rational in the first place to step up their continual rage and aim it at the United States.
From the tiresome, overplayed naked “Twister” games at Abu Ghraib, to Kevin Sites, the imbedded “Journalist” who filmed a Marine shooting a Muslim who was playing dead at a Fallujah mosque in Iraq, to this. If the media is on the side of our enemies, and against the nation that gives them the freedom to be so stupid, they should move to the Middle East and see if they”re allowed freedom of the press over there. Would they appreciate America once they did move to the Middle East and had their tongues cut out for misreporting the news over there?
The manner in which the major news networks have reported this war is a disservice to the American people and a complete disgrace to the American Armed Forces. What they ought to know by now is that when a Muslim is jailed, it’s extremely common for them to lie and accuse their jailers of torturing and humiliating them.
The manner in which our government has handled this particular report is just as ridiculous.
Almost immediately, we saw our esteemed Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and White House Press Secretary Scott McClellen attempting to soothe the rioting Muslim world.
Secretary Rice said: “Disrespect for the holy Koran is not now, nor has it ever been, nor will it ever be, tolerated by the United States, “We honor the sacred books of all the world’s great religions. Disrespect for the holy Koran is abhorrent to us all.”
I’m not sure whom Ms. Rice was referring to when she used the term “abhorrent to us all”, but for the hundreds of millions of people around the world who actually understand who we”re fighting in this inadequately named “War on Terror”, it”d be surprising to learn that anyone has lost a second’s worth of sleep over the Qur’an being placed on, or dunked into a toilet. After all, it’s not like there aren’t verses in that book that needed to be washed away centuries ago. And to describe it as being “holy”, is truly a matter of opinion — take, for example, verses 4:34, 4:89, 5:17, 5:51, 8:12, 9:5 and 9:29.
Do all of these Muslims even know why they”re angry and why they”re rioting?
Since 9/11, the Muslim world has had nearly four years to prove that Islam contains a majority of moderates, with only a small minority of Islamic terrorists who have merely “hijacked” Islam, and that Islam, as it is so regularly described, is truly a “religion of peace”. Where is their evidence?
Muslims have brought to us 3000 murders on our soil, thousands of murders overseas, billions of dollars lost, memories of raging fires, mangled bodies and steel, and an obese, toothless Palestinian woman in her hijab dancing in the street of her slum on 9/11 after the WTC towers collapsed. Memories that will last us a lifetime — not to mention billions of dollars more being spent prosecuting Islamic criminals inside the United States to this day. Here is our evidence:
Here are a few quotes from these “peaceful” Muslims that our officials were tripping over themselves to appease:
Mohammad Hanif, a Muslim cleric who runs a seminary in Chaman, a Pakistani tribal town: “They should be hung. They should be killed in public so that no one can dare to insult Islam and its sacred symbols”.
“Demonstrations serve no purpose, we should do something practical. I am ready to blow myself up for the sake of my religion to embrace martyrdom,” Mohammad Ghafoor, an 18-year-old student.
“The Holy Koran was defiled by the dirtiest of hands, by American hands,” a protester shouted at the Jabalya refugee camp in Gaza, where U.S. and Israeli flags were also burned.
While Muslims are kicking and screaming, nothing has been mentioned about desecrated Bibles, Christian churches being burned to the ground, or Christians being persecuted in Islamic lands. The only concern of these odious rioters is their Qur’an.
Can free societies honestly afford to permit any further Muslim immigration? This column certainly does not pertain to Arab Christians, Arab Jews, Christian Africans or Hindus, but to Muslims and the Islamic ideology. Do the governments of free societies honestly know what they”re getting their nations into?
Why is it necessary to coddle the Muslim world, which hates us and always will? Here’s an idea: as soon as they apologize for everything the world has had to put up with from them, including the mistreatment of non-Muslims in who live in Islamic nations, then maybe we”ll give a damn about a version of Muhammad’s visions getting soaked in the loo, if it’s ever proven to have happened.
Finally, a note to our government officials: Please stop groveling to Muslims. It’s sickening to watch. Regardless of this admitted reporting error, they now have another excuse to be enraged. Please show some damn dignity and strength. Act as if you”re American and stand up as if you possess a spine.
