In “Huffington Post’s jihad against freedom” at WND today, Pamela Geller exposes how the HuffPo is yet again covering for jihad violence and Islamic supremacism:
The Huffington Post continues to wage its jihad against freedom and its champions.
The Huffington Post, aka the Puff Ho, consistently displays an
editorial bias that is almost indistinguishable from that of the
designated terrorist news outlet, al Manar.
There was no holiday reprieve from the Islamic supremacists at the
Puff Ho. No, on Christmas day, Sarah Sayeed of the “Interfaith” Center
of New York wrote: “A new set of ads by Pamela Geller
show the Twin Towers in flames next to a passage from the Quran warning
that “˜fear that shall strike the hearts of unbelievers.” Many see the
message as Islamophobic and intended to provoke fear about Islam in
Sayeed’s timing was unfortunate, to say the least. On the same day her article appeared, Nigerian Muslims murdered six Christians who were attending Christmas services. And in Indonesia, a savage mob of 200 Muslims, including hijab-wearing women, pelted Christian worshippers
with rotten eggs and bags of urine and dung. Both of these Muslim
groups were motivated by Quranic teachings like the one quoted in my ad,
making it harder for Sayeed to convince anyone who is informed about
current events that my ads are “Islamophobic and intended to provoke
fear of Islam in America.”
If anyone is promoting fear of Islam in America, it is the Muslims
worldwide who kill people in the name of Islam and jihad. Sayeed should
be challenging them, not me.
In her article, Sayeed attempted to teach us about freedom,
explaining what’s wrong with it, and how we can adhere to the Shariah so
that Islamic supremacists won’t get all angry and violent and kill
people — which, of course, is their right in the event that we say
something that violates the Shariah and upsets them. Sayeed explains
“that individual freedom need not compromise collective well-being,” and
that freedom of speech should be “responsible.”
Responsible? According to whom? Shariah advocates? She goes on to
preach to us that each one of us is “not truly independent.” Not under
Islam, Sayeed, but under the Constitution I am.
It pains me that Sayeed is not railing against the oppression,
subjugation and slaughter of non-Muslims living in Muslim countries. Nor
is she battling the influence among Muslims of the Quranic verses that
inspire jihad, such as the one depicted in my ad, or calling for a
reform of these Quranic teachings. Instead, she perverts the murder of
3,000 Americans on 9/11. Sayeed contends that by pointing out the
ideology behind the over 20,000 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11, I am
“boost[ing] their message and potency.” As if the slaughter of hundreds
of thousands wasn’t “potent” enough. Does she condemn that? Uh, no.
Sarah Sayeed should be fighting for the rights of non-Muslims under
the Shariah. She should be fighting for the rights of women under the
Shariah. She should be fighting against forced marriage, female genital
mutilation and child marriage. Contrary to the claims of Islamic
apologists at the Huffington Post and elsewhere, Islamic clerics justify
all of those things by pointing to Islamic texts and teachings.
Instead, Sarah Sayeed is fighting “¦ me.
And it’s not just Sayeed: No Muslim group anywhere has any program or
initiative for teaching against the ideology that inspires jihad. There
is no large-scale or serious attempt at reform going on, despite the
fact that Muslims worldwide commit violence in the name of the Quran and
Islam on a more or less daily basis. This month Robert Spencer has been
running a daily series at his website Jihad Watch, “Hatred and Violence in the Quran Awareness Month.”
Seeing it, it’s easy to understand why this violence is happening: The
Quran is full of vitriol and contempt for non-Muslims and calls to wage
war against them.
