I found this video on Hot Air while I was looking for something to write about. It has been a week since my last blog entry, and while I have updated a few entries in the meantime, I felt I should at least get out there and put something up. As you can see, it is in the same “spirit” as the previous one.
Now I have to give Steven Crowder credit. If I was the one in his position, I wouldn’t have been so polite about it. Even the ancient Egyptians waiting till 14 before marriage, which is understandable seeing how the average life expectancy was about 30 (correct me if I’m wrong, but I am pretty sure I’m not). As Wiki Islam points out, Mohammed’s marriage to Aisha was clearly an act of pedophilia, something which is still practiced in many part of the Muslim world. Add in all the talk about Jews and Christians being no one’s friend, Muslims who are friends with them aren’t Muslims, those who don’t convert should be killed, etc and you definitely don’t have the “religion of peace”.
While that is a bold statement, it is about time someone says it. It seems these days that too many are willing to appease these people, the same people who have prayed for our deaths, celebrated terrorist attacks, and continue to push their backward beliefs down our throats. I have met many good Muslims, and while I’m not going to simply judge a person on their faith alone, I’m sick and tired of turning on the television or opening up my e-mail to find a story about murders and bombings done in the name of Mohammed. Sooner or later, we might just have to enact the “Golden Rule” (Matthew 7:12) in a way Jesus never intended.
They better figure out that this is all getting on our very last nerve, and if they want a fight, there are more of us then them and we carry bigger sticks.
UPDATE: I will also like to say that this isn’t even the half of it. My last post covered it, but I would like to once again address this concept of “honour killings”. If it isn’t the beating of women as commanded by Mohammed, it is the brutal killing of them. Mark Steyn put out an article for Atlas Shrugs about the most recent incident, as well as countless more. I recommend you go through that list, mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, and fiancees all killed by family members because of their “dishonour”. Give it a look, especially if you think what I am saying is extreme since you obviously need a douse of brutal and disturbing reality.
Once again, some cultures just aren’t worth preserving, especially one which allows this kind of brutality towards women…
UPDATE: While a little off topic, I think it is necessary to make a mention of it. To Helen Thomas and other mentally deranged reporters, there is no “moral equivalence” to their acts of terrorism. Dropping bombs on military targets is not the same as blowing up a crowded market of civilians, nor is water-boarding the same as beheading and otherwise mutilating a family member for “dishonouring” you. Thomas should be sent to the Middle East and see how they treat women, especially ones as unstable as her.
What a disgusting display of ignorance and anti-American bias. Pathetic…
UPDATE: What did I say about Islam being shoved down our throats? As Zomblog reports, these new advertisements on public transportation in San Francisco is just the start. And who is funding this? Why if it isn’t CAIR, the Hamas-linked organization trying to convert the ignorant in America. I don’t see Christians, Jews, Buddhists, etc doing this do you? You don’t see Catholics demanding submission to my faith through such aggressive means do you? Disgusting…
UPDATE: If the advertisements on public transportation weren’t enough, here is another reason to question the “political correct” view on Islam. This from CBS’ Dean Reynolds.
“He was an A student,” says Samatar. “He has everything to hope for to attend any Ivy League school that he wanted to. Why he would do it is a mystery to us.”
Some 20 vanished last year – all American citizens – an exodus the FBI has noticed for a troubling reason.
“A man from Minneapolis became what we believe to be the first U.S. citizen to carry out a terrorist suicide bombing,” said agency director Robert Mueller.
The October attack by 27-year-old Shirwa Ahmed killed 30 near Mogadishu, and there is alarm that the skills acquired abroad could be brought back to America.
Found this while looking over Hot Air. I can testify to my own experience with this sort of thing, seeing as the mosque near my high school was being used to recruit terrorists, as was the case with Momin Khawaja. It doesn’t surprise me that Somali Muslims would be recruited at mosques for the civil war in Somalia, especially after the Khawaja incident, but it is upsetting that even after all this, nothing is being done. If a religious organization is being used as an arm for paramilitary groups, then they should have their rights suspended and people should be arrested. End of story.
“Religion of peace”? Not even close.
