The Million Muslim March?

November 12, 2009

march

On yesterday’s O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly had a profound discussion about the Fort Hood massacre with Bernie Goldberg, author of the new book, A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media. Goldberg is always superb and this time he narrowed in wisely on the pathologies that the Fort Hood massacre has exposed: the political correctness nurtured by the Left in our society and the disinclination of so-called “moderate” Muslims to stand up in mass numbers and denounce the likes of Nidal Malik Hasan.

In making his point, Goldberg shrewdly asked when we are going to see a Million Muslim March take place in Washington – in which a million Muslims gather to denounce terror and declare that what Nidal Malik Hasan did was un-Islamic.

Goldberg’s point is crucial, but we need to add to it. The key that is often missed in our nation’s discussion on Islamic terrorism is that this is not necessarily about Muslims themselves. As the scholar Robert Spencer has stressed over and over again, the problem is not Muslims, the problem is Islam – in the sense that the problem is what Islam teaches. So the crucial issue in all of this is not what this Muslim may think or that Muslim may think. It’s not about these empty arguments about whether the majority or minority of Muslims are peaceful or not. The issue is what Islamic theology mandates.

And so the crux of the issue is this: if Islam is really a Religion of Peace and if the majority of Muslims really do support peace and reject violence, then when are they going to rise up in majority numbers and denounce the teachings within Islam that inspire and sanction the terrorism that Islamic terrorists engage in? When will they renounce the verses and teachings that Islamic terrorists point to and quote in justifying and explaining their violence?

So here is an idea. Thank you Bernie Goldberg, there does need to be a Million Muslim March. And if Islam is a Religion of Peace, then in this Million Muslim March the million Muslims who gather can demonstrate it by categorically doing the following:

[1] Repudiate Sura 9:29 of the Qur’an, which commands Muslims to fight Jews and Christians (“the People of the Book”) until they “pay the jizya [a non-Muslim poll tax] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” The teaching is that, if they refuse to pay the jizya, Jews and Christians should be killed. Are Muslims ready to join the Million Muslim March and reject this as un-Islamic? Are they ready to completely negate Islamic law when it comes to the teaching of the necessity to subjugate Jews and Christians?

[2] Collectively agree that a woman has a right to engage in a love life she chooses without having to fear for her life. In other words, to accept that women have the right to self-determination, including in the sexual realm, and that their lives must not be at stake in this matter. This reality is in many respects, and on many realms, at the heart of our terror war, as jihad is very much inspired by the impulse to keep women enslaved under a system of gender apartheid. As Wafa Sultan, Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, Brigitte Gabriel, Phyllis Chesler and others can tell you, jihadists are infuriated by women’s freedom in the West and see this as a grave threat to their misogynistic systems of totalitarian Puritanism.

If Muslims at the Million Muslim March cannot agree on this principle of women having the right to be free, then they are in the end legitimizing violence against women and declaring Islamic ideology to be incompatible with the democratic system in which they live. And this reality, of course, explains why honor killings are perpetrated by Muslims throughout the world and why they are on a skyrocketing increase in America and in the West.

[3] Reject the Islamic doctrine on apostasy, which holds that a Muslim has to be killed if he changes his religion.

[4] Reject the Islamic doctrine that Muslims are obligated to turn the whole world into committed Muslims, by force and jihad if necessary. In other words, the Muslims who arrive at the Million Muslim March can prove their religion is one of peace by repudiating all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence that teach that it is part of the responsibility of the umma to subjugate the non-Muslim world through jihad.

[5] State that Christians and other non-Muslim religions can freely proselytize in a Muslim land or community and remain unharmed.

[6] Reject the Qur’an’s description of Jews being apes and pigs. (Suras 2: 62-65, 5:59-60, 7:166)

These are the first six ideas for the Million Muslim March. There are, of course, many more. Perhaps various scholars of Islam, like Robert Spencer, will be invited to contribute more ideas by the organizers of the Million Muslim March. But I have a feeling all of this will not happen, just as I have a feeling that the six suggestions I have made, and the facts that are contained within them, will not be ingredients for discussion in our media, especially among those who are vehemently denying that the Fort Hood massacre has anything to do with Islam, jihad or Islamic terror.

    Jamie Glazov you know that you are asking for a miracle that will be an impossibility. If the six ideas you have proposed are accepted, it means there is NO ISLAM, or if all those ideas are expunged from the Quran and the Hadiths, there will be nothing left in the Quran but a few meaningless pages in Arabic.

    Never happen. About a dozen people will show up infront of 50 news people to say that Islam is all about peace. The media will play this up for a day with past videos of other muslim demonstrations to make it look bigger than it was. Then the media will ignore all the other demonstrations where they chant death to America and Sharia law for everyone ….Then Obama will apologize to someone and give some money to one of the local Muslim organizations all before the ninth hole.

    I agree with the writer; but, even he laments that his ideas won’t be picked up by the MSM any time soon.

    To ask Muslims to forsake any part of the Koran is equivalent to asking Christians to forsake any part of the Bible (though some have already done just that). Ditto for those of the Jewish faith (though, again, some have forsaken parts of their traditions and scriptures). It “ain’t” gonna happen, especially among those considered to be “fundamentalists”.

    The problem isn’t so much with religion as it is with people. It’s as easy to find anarchist/atheistic fanatics as it is religious fanatics. (Then, again, maybe not, as the MSM admires the atheistic types for being “progressive”, and will most often favor them over other types of fanaticism.) The solution isn’t more jobs or education, either. Hasan was well-paid and well-benefited. Would he have killed more if he had been paid less? The solution begins with the ending of “political correctness”. For those in the service of protecting our country, a “sterling” fitness record is essential for advancement, as it should be. Careers should not be torpedoed for identifying and dealing with a threat. If the threat is Muslim, deal with it, as it would be dealt with for someone of any other faith, or denial thereof.

    Never happen. By definition, any Muslim making any such statements against Islam would be instantly subject to slaughter. Further, disinformation is encouraged to disquise the battle for Allah so one would never know if any anti-Islam remarks were real or not. Our nation has some serious soul searching to do to combat the threats Islam presents….

    Let me answer that question for Mr. Goldberg when pigs fly. What is a moderate muslim? One that has not tried to kill a person of another faith while treating his wife or female relative like so many beast of the field yet sits by while his fellow muslims spread murder and carnage against men women and children. There is only one way to end this insane wanton murder and destruction but very few people have the guts to say it.

    Oldwolves, Sooo cynical. The Lame Stream Media would never distort the facts!! At least not as you have described. If this call for a Million Muslim March were to ever get air time LSM would vilify those calling for it. Then they’d find some attractive Muslim liberal woman, sans head cover, and she’d claim how peace loving ALL Muslims are! The LSM interviewer would agree with her and find it shocking that anyone would question their beliefs. Geraldo Rivera would scream the guy was just a crazy lone gun man, kinda like his idol Charlie Manson. He’d claim our border restrictions are making these poor Muslims into radical killers. Al Gore would get LSM time to talk about how excess CO2 is kinda like PTSD, no questions pleeezze he’d whine, and the Major was breathing too deeply while he was shouting the Islamic verse seeking 72 Virgins or whatever. Trust the Lame Stream Media, pleeezze!.

      London, England, United Kingdom. Once the greatest empire in the world. Reduced to a pathetic island with bad weather and even worse food without so much as a wimper from it’s people.

    Jamie “Koran” is a perfectly good English word. “Qur’an” is some bastardization of Arabic that people use in order to get all warm and fuzzy in a misguided attempt to prove their multi-culti bona fides. In my view it’s very much like the statement: “Islam is a religion of peace”, a nice but false sentiment. It’s time to stop making even this small concession to the murderers that seem to have taken over this so called religion.

    Wahhabist Islam, which along with radical Iranian Shiites and the Muslim Brotherhood empowers the lunatics we face as our enemy, would have remained largely a domestic political revolution had not the House of Saud exported it to the world. The thieves that today rule Saudi Arabia allied themselves with the Wahhabists so that the House of Saud could continue stealing oil and amassing money in Swiss Bank accounts. If not for this unholy alliance between the Wahhabis and the thieves, the princes of the House of Saud would never have risen above the ranks of their larcenous ancestors. It is the export of this domestic revolution that keeps the thieves in power. With any luck this revolution will soon re-import into Saudi Arabia where the Wahhabis will demonstrate to the world the bloody nature of Pax Islama.

    Muslims don’t march. they drive taxis, keep stores or kneel at mosques whilst listening to yarns about the eventual achievement of a pure islamic world.

    Islam IS a religion of peace. The peace of submission. The peace of giving up all freedom, or hope of freedom. The peace of the grave.

    Former President Bush declaring the lie that Islam is a “religion of peace” doesn’t hide the FACT that Islam is en CONSTANT WAR with the West going back to it’s inception by Mohammad. He started out in conquest WITH THE SWORD in the name of his new religion, hundreds of years after Christ declared that He was the Son of God and died and rose again to give eternal life to all who would believe and NOT make God a liar. So, this anti-Christ religion has done EXACTLY what it’s Koran, which is Islam’s bible, says when Mohammad says to subjugate or kill all opposed to their god, Allah.

    Muslims in the name of Allah and his prophet Mohammad over the centured of conquest and subjugation have murdered tens of MILLIONS of Christians, and many millions more non-Muslims AND MUSLIMS ALIKE.

    The Crusaders murdered Muslims and others who would not convert to CATHOLISISM, which was NOT true Christianity, but a pagan and Christian mixture of unholiness, torture, brutality and murder. The Catholic church in the Name of Jesus of Nazareth persecuted the true church, which THEY referred to as “Anabaptists,” to death for hundreds of years under the Pope’s authority and blessing. They even invented some of the most horrific torture mechanisms and dilervery systems of pain you could possible want to imagine, in my opinion.

    The Calvanists also persecuted the Anabatists, which HAD NO NAME (Jesus refers to LOCATION, not denominationalism). The Lutherans did the same.

    Throughout history, RELIGION is what drives civilizations – and what kills them.

    God has warned us (I am NOT innocent) all that any nation that does not follow Him will be subject to famine and all the things that conditions that exist in one. American is ready to fall from within by Obama and the Democrats and RINOS in Washington District of Corruption. The dollar is ready to tank, which will bring in a new currency. I do not know if it will be ELECTRONIC or not.

    Here is the end of this age according to what Yeshua HaMashiach told John:

    And he said to me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

    12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

    14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie.

    16 I Jesus have sent my angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

    17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is thirsty come. And whoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

    Thanks for listening,

    Islam is a religion of conquest, not peace. The only “peace” Islam preaches is the “peace” wherein the entire world is subject to Sharia Law and acknowledges that Allah is God and Mohammed is his prophet. Muslims cannot renounce a single word in the Koran for every word, according to them, proceeded from Allah’s mouth. Mohammed is the “perfect” man to Muslims, so if he killed infidels, married 9 year-old girls, slaughtered thousands of people, married his nephew’s wife, and called Jews ‘pigs and monkeys’, then nothing he said or did is to be questioned or doubted.

    Islam is a religion of ‘black and white’, of ‘if you’re not with me, you’re against me’, of the supremacy of men over women, of jihad as the surest way of attaining paradise. A ‘religion of peace’ would not advocate jihad as the most perfect service to Allah and the guarantee to heavenly bliss.

    The myth that Islam is a religion of peace can only survive and thrive where there is complete ignorance of its history and teachings. It is this ignorance which is will see the islamization of Europe in 10-20 years and of the US as well. Political correctness is the blindfold that Islam uses to keep us from seeing its brutality and barbarism. One day Islam will slit our throats while we’re wearing that blindfold, just as the barbarians in Iraq slit the throats of their captives while recording their dastardly deed.

    Ok , here’s where you want to lose it. From the web site ‘I hate the media’. This congresswoman from California demands that these religious fanatics be investigated!

    “CATHOLIC” religious fanatics. Because she claims they are the greatest threat to America.

    How can we hope for a million muslim march when you have millions of people like this twit who wants to attack the religion our countries values are based upon?
