Today as I sifted the news about the new jihad attacks and plots in Great Britain, I received this email, which seemed particularly piquant in its timing. I don’t know why this “christian” sent me an email referring to “your friend robert spencer,” but perhaps he is one of those geniuses who is sure that I am Hugh Fitzgerald, and that Hugh is Marlene Dietrich, and that we are both Mr. Yacub, cooking up untold evils on the island of Madagascar. Anyway, here is yet another example of two common jihadist deflection tactics: moral equivalence (tu quoque) and the casting of the “hate” accusation onto those who resist jihad terror, rather than the jihadists.
your friend robert spencer seems to be able to give examples of evils from the koran easily, so why doesnt he do the same with the bible,
p.s. i am a practicing christian, so i do understand this
fucking hate mongers like you guys are just creatures from hell masquerading as god-fearing christians
In London and Glasgow, Islamic jihad terrorists were plotting to kill thousands of innocent people, and we’re the hate mongers for reporting on their activities. This is the same shift of focus we have seen so many times. And as for the Bible/Qur’an equivalency, in case anyone is interested we have discussed it here, here, here, and here, among many other places. It also gets extended treatment in my forthcoming book, Religion of Peace? Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn’t, which will be published August 13 by Regnery Publishing. This book is a realistic appraisal of the teachings, histories, and contemporary status of Christianity and Islam, an examination of the jihad threat and the “Christian theocracy” threat as imagined by Chris Hedges and others, and a call to Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, secular Muslims, and everyone else who is a victim or potential victim of the global jihad and Islamic supremacism to unite together against this scourge.
