Must See Video- Dispatches: Undercover Mosque The Ultimate Insult: Interesting Questions Raised by UAE Writer Yousef Ibrahim

The Ultimate Insult

Trying to discover just exactly what the "ultimate insult" to Islam really is.

o  Muslims committed the huge blunder of revealing their vulnerability [cartoon flap]. Now the world knows what hurts them. When you find your opponent’s weak spot, it is exactly where you want to hit him… If Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated.  

o  Muslim psychology…is all pomposity and bravado. I give you my word that if Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated. Shame is a great motivator as well as deterrent. Do not underestimate the power of ridicule. This is serious stuff not a laughing matter…  

o  How much ridicule is enough? Until it hurts. The pain of shame must become bigger than the comfort of clinging to this false fetish. When you see their eyes are popping out of their eyeballs, their veins bulging in their necks, foam forming at their mouths, and they are ready to explode, you know that the remedy is working. Give them more. They will either die of heart attacks or they will come to their senses and recover from this insanity.  

o  Every one of us must become a cyberwarrior and mock Muhammad, Islam and the Muslims. Use your talent. Draw cartoons based on the hadith and the Quran. You can find tons of ridiculous stuff in these books to lampoon. Write articles, lyrics, jokes, plays, do whatever you can to ridicule Muhammad the prophet pretender and Muslims. Don’t heed to their howls and cries.

Interesting Questions Raised by UAE Writer Yousef Ibrahim

"The Muslims have every right to impose Islamic values on their peoples and in their lands, as long as they constitute the majority. The problem is, what happens when the Muslims are not the majority, as in America, Europe, Australia, and some countries in Asia[?]… Can Muslims who immigrate abroad insist on applying the laws of Islamic shari'a to themselves and to others even where it is clear that they are a minority? Can they challenge the secular cultures common in the Western societies [with demands], or resist the will of these societies to separate religion and state?…

"In a secular country, do Muslims have the right to build mosques, teach the Koran, or support the [Islamic] religious schools? Must the Muslim be entitled to have more than one wife in America, Russia, Europe, or China? Can they impose Koranic punishments in these [countries]?…

"In principle, this entire matter begins and ends with our views towards others, with the question of whether we think that others have rights or not, and with the question of whether Islam is a religion capable of coexisting in a secular society without being condescending towards others - particularly with regard to the civil laws in the Western democracies."

*************************

This excerpt is from MEMRI , and I found the views of this columnist who writes for a UAE publication interesting, though MEMRI is only supplying excerpts from the column. I do urge you all to read the rest though, very interesting. Though he does mention that non-Muslims living in Muslim lands are sometimes subjected to laws that get rather carried away (he's speaking of immigrants here, not the dhimmi populations), there is always the caveats such as "just as we do not permit Christians living among us to impose their values upon us…"

This might be a reverse insult: Islam insults and disrespects any values which are not Islamic.

Good find!

I've always thought that Muslims in the West should be treated exactly the same way non-Muslims are in Islamic countries. There's a certain symmetry to it.

Crusader,
I see a lot of interesting possibilities in that symmetry.

Crusader,

Symmetry is good!

"Muslims have every right to impose Islamic values on their peoples and in their lands, as long as they constitute the majority."

This short comment brings up a couple of problems. One is, Islam regards every land where any Muslim has ever set foot as "their lands."

Another is the whole "majority" issue. According to this logic, it would be OK, for example, to wipe Israel off the map, if the majority wished it. This is the whole problem with democracy - unrestrained, it results in things like sharia.

Until we understand the problem of majority rule, we have to make sure that Muslims aren't in the majority in this country.

Like Neal Boortz always says about majority rule/actual democracy : it's two wolves and one sheep deciding what's for dinner.

But I'm all for Crusader's symmetry idea. Should I start screming "Infidel whore!" immediately? I'm about to leave....one might be lurking out somewhere....
