Muslims here in Malaysia and elsewhere love to prattle on about how warlike the ‘infidels’ are,
especially America or anyone that can be portrayed as one of America’s
friends. When former British Prime Minister Tony Blair visited Malaysia in 2010, a op-ed in a Malaysian government-controlled
newspaper, The Star, excoriated him, stating in this piece
that “Malaysia must not allow this mass murderer to be immune from
justice.” So said the author of this piece, one “Professor” Shad Saleem
Farudi. OK, I get it — America is evil and so is anyone that cooperates
Meanwhile, Muslims who are actually engaged in ongoing mass murder of the worse sort imaginable — bombings and shootings of Muslims praying
at mosques, bombings of Muslims in hospitals who are being patched back together from said bombings, bombings of Muslims who are attending
funerals of other bombing/shooting victims — this merits, at most, only a
passing mention in the the Muslim media. Actually, such barbarisms are
usually not mentioned at all, not in what passes as the ‘Malaysian
media’. Not even a hint of condemnation is to be heard.
The Taliban monsters, unnoticed and uncondemned by any Muslim or Muslim group, continue to outdo themselves in sheer depravity. Yesterday came the news that the jihadists tricked an 8 year-old girl to be a suicide bomber. Well, ‘War is deceit’, as Islam’s ‘prophet’ is alleged to have said. And ‘War is hell’ as one American general once said. But how many Malaysians are going to get themselves worked up over this, like they get worked up over cartoons or Israeli operations against Hamas? What a silly question to ask.
As for Tony Blair, he stands accused by many Muslims and Muslim groups as being a
‘war criminal’ and for committing ‘crimes against humanity’, while Saddam Hussein (may he rot in hell) is never similarly accused in the Muslim media, despite the millions of Muslims he killed, tortured, gassed, and murdered. Yes, Saddam is mercifully dead, thanks to the efforts of alleged ‘war criminal’ Tony Blair and others, but the authors of the real war crimes described above, the Taliban, are quite alive and well.
And still, their enormous crimes are at best ignored, and perhaps tacitly accepted, by Malaysians of all stripes, both inside and outside the government and media.
Malaysia and its people studiously do nothing to fight against those who wantonly murder civilians, including women and children, in schools, mosques, or hospitals. Malaysia cares not a whit if Muslims use 8-year olds for suicide attacks. And why? Because this means Malaysia would be openly seen to be helping Americans fight Muslims, you see. Meanwhile, the aforementioned self-righteous ‘Professor’ Shad Saleem Farudi of course cannot even be bothered to write a perfunctory letter to the editor to speak ill of his fellow co-religionists, the Taliban,
or of their many real war crimes. Only infidels commit crimes against humanity, never Muslims. Never mind the facts. And when reality gets in the way, well, you just invent your own reality, like Mr. Farudi and his fellow Mohammedans have done.
All of this has made one thing loud and clear to me. To be a Muslim means to be a hypocrite par excellence.
