Exposed By Contradictions, Volume II, The Pastor and The Imam

We are consistently castigated by “moderate” Muslims as to the basis upon which we should or should not judge them:

  • Do not judge us based on the likes of Bin Laden.
  • Do not judge us based on incidents of terror.
  • Do not judge us based on Muslim on Muslim violence.
  • Do not judge us based on polling that shows comprehensive support for the Islamist view.
  • Do not judge us based on a minority who motivate violence.
  • Do not judge us based on the murder of Theo Van Gogh.
  • Do not judge us based on death fatwa’s issued against those who dissent or call for reformation in Islam.
  • Do not judge us based on violent reactions to cartoons that do nothing more than reflect actual behaviors.
  • Do not judge us based on our refusal to assimilate.
  • Do not judge us on our commitment to Shari’a and the requirement that the Constitution be dismantled to allow for that.
  • Do not judge us based on our belief that the CIA or Israel was behind September 11th
  • Do not judge us based on honor killings across the globe.
  • Do not judge us based on our belief that you simply “got what was coming to you” on September 11th.
  • Do not judge us based on domestic terror cells that have been dismantled.
  • Do not judge us based on the beheadings of Daniel Pearl and Nick Berg.
  • Do not judge us based on the degree of violence we perpetrate in Europe.
  • Do not judge us based on our subjugation of women.
  • Do not judge us based on death by stoning for infidelity.
  • Do not judge us based on the belief of some that chaos must precede the apocalypse and it is a religious duty to motivate that chaos.
  • Do not judge us based on fatwa’s that specifically authorize the killings of millions, complete with a justification for the number.
  • Do not judge us based on the charge in the Koran that we appease our hosts only until we are strong enough to defeat them.
  • Do not judge us based on death sentences for homosexuality.
  • Do not judge us based on our commitment to genocidal extermination of Israel.
  • Do not judge us based on the prevalent Medieval interpretation of Islam.
  • Do not judge us based on the likes of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Hiz’bAllah, although we do raise funds for them.
  • Do not judge us on the evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial proving, comprehensively major links of “moderate” American Muslim groups to the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • Do not judge us based on the Dhahran barracks bombing or Beirut or The Cole or Major Hassan, or the Christmas bomber, or the Fort Dix plan or the Madrassa in suburban Washington D.C.
  • Do not judge us on the exodus of Americans to fight Jihad in Somalia.
  • Do not judge us on the fact that we say one thing in America and another thing anywhere else.

And yet, according to Imam Rauf, one lowly, disturbed Pastor of 50 people in Gainesville Florida who stupidly wants to burn Koran’s on September 11th will unleash worldwide violence against Americans.  One man will become the basis upon which to judge 300 million?  Yes, Imam Rauf would have us believe that we will all be judged by the actions of this one small man; contradiction?

While I believe the Pastor is a comprehensive moron, morons have First Amendment rights too. 

Two messages for Imam Rauf.  First, if our choice is temporary peace based on appeasement or freedoms that come with the threat of violence, I’ll take the freedoms and live with the threat, thank you very much.  Secondly, violence based on this situation will serve to further expose “moderates” for what they truly are, Islamists of the political kind.  Be careful what you wish for, you just might get more of it than you ever imagined!
