Tolerance, freedom of speech, and “live and let live” are the mantras most Americans live by. Relativism, be it cultural, theological, or moral is the ruling philosophy of our day. About the only thing elites are sure of is there is nothing you can be sure of.
The trouble here is we are facing a religion of hate that is touted as a religion of peace. I realize that there are many Muslims who are not extremists. But I also recognize there are multiplied tens of millions who embrace, support, and cheer Islamic murderers. Hamas, the terrorist organization, recently won the Palestinian elections by a landslide. One mother, who had already given three of her sons as “homicide bombers,” was elected to office for her sacrifice. She stated that she would gladly give her other three sons as suicide bombers to kill Jews.
Kenneth R. Timmerman wrote a book titled Saudi Wealth Fuels Global Jihadism. I believe the following quote was taken from that book. “Doaa ‘Amer is a professional TV anchor who hosts Muslim Woman Magazine on IQRAA TV, a satellite channel broadcasting throughout the Arab world. As she tells it, her job is to educate the next generation of children to be ‘true Muslims.’ Readers accustomed to hearing Islam described as a ‘religion of peace’ by pundits and apologists in the West will be surprised to learn what she means, but her view is neither extreme nor unusual in today’s Islamic world-the real world of Islam, the day-to-day world of mosques and classrooms and teashops and hubbly-bubblies and government-controlled news media that provide a daily diet of hate that until recently has rarely been translated into English. On May 7, 2002, wearing her customary body-length robe and a fashionable head scarf, Doaa ‘Amer announced to her viewers that she had a special guest. The Middle East Media and Research Institute (www.MEMRI.org) taped the show and provided the following transcript, as well as a complete videotape of the Arabic-language original with English subtitles.
“Our report today will be a little different because our guest is a girl, a Muslim girl, but a true Muslim.” Exuding sincerity, the attractive young host addresses herself directly to the mothers in the audience, who like her could have a daughter the same age. ‘Allah willing, may our God give us the strength to educate our children the same way, so that the next generation will turn out to be true Muslims who understand that they are Muslims and know who their enemies are,’ she gurgles. ‘This girl will introduce herself immediately. She is the daughter of my sister in faith and of the artist Wagdi al-Arabia. Her name is Basmallah.’
The camera pans slowly down and to the right as Ms. ‘Amer greets her guest, who turns out to be a small child.
“Peace be upon you,” Ms. ‘Amer says, welcoming Basmallah onto her show.
“Allah’s mercy and blessing upon you,” the little girl replies.
‘Amer: Basmallah, how old are you?’
‘Amer: Are you a Muslim?
‘Amer: Basmallah, are you familiar with the Jews?
‘Amer: Do you like them?
‘Amer: Why don’t you like them?
Child: Because …
‘Amer (prompting): Because they are what?
Child: They’re apes and pigs.
‘Amer: Because they’re apes and pigs? Who said they are so?
Child: Our God.
‘Amer: Where did he say this?
Child: In the Koran.
‘Amer: Right, he said that about them in the Koran.
Ms. ‘Amer turns to the camera, gushing with praise. “Basmallah, Allah be praised! Basmallah, Allah be praised! May our God bless her. No one could wish Allah could give him a more believing girl than she. … May Allah bless her and her father and mother. The next generation of children must be true Muslims. We must educate them now while they are still children so that they will be true Muslims.”
Remember the bumper sticker: Smile–“God Loves You!” Well, if the militant Muslims were into bumper stickers theirs might read: “Frown: Allah Hates You– and So do True Muslims!”
