And yet in a fine Orwellian twist, only opponents of people like Cromitie, a convert to and Misunderstander of the Religion of Peace, are called “hatemongers” and “bigots.” Of course, they will say that it is because we tar all Muslims with the crimes of people like Cromitie, and pretend that they are all just like him. But of course this is a false charge. What they want to divert attention away from is the fact that people like Cromitie are motivated in their Jew-hatred by passages of the Qur’an such as the one that says that Jews are the worst enemies of the Muslims (5:82). They don’t want you to know the roots within Islamic texts and teachings of jihad violence and Islamic supremacism, and so they claim that those who call attention to those roots are motivated by hatred and bigotry, and hope that the ignorant will believe that the roots of that violence and supremacism are elsewhere — specifically in the sins of the West — and that only “hatemongers” say otherwise.
