Mark Sanford, Welcome Back To Washington...
Shame On Islam|
April 7, 2008
Americans wonder why moderate Muslims don't publicly condemn Islamofascism, terrorism,
and the hijacking of their religion by fanatics who use women as suicide bombers
and babies as human shields. A question seldom asked is why Americans aren't
publicly condemning these atrocities.
The barbarism exhibited by the fanatical faction of Islam is beyond the pale, by
any civilized standards. And while America waits for Muslims to step up and condemn
these barbarians, we go about our business as usual, condemning instead the unthinkable
practice of putting panties on terrorists' heads, and the cruel and unusual punishment
of including pork on the menu provided to terrorists incarcerated in Guantanamo.
The irrational hatred of the West by many Muslims is seldom questioned. Instead,
a large segment of the American public has taken a cue from them, adopting irrational hatred as a political
philosophy. By not condemning irrational hatred, we implicitly endorse it. Just
as we implicitly endorse terror tactics by not condemning them.
Throughout history, communities, civilizations and cultures have learned by example.
Take the growing number of teen tarts performing non-sex on their boyfriends. Thank-you,
Boy Clinton. Take the increasing number of school shootings mirrored on Columbine.
The examples abound. So why are we surprised when Muslims in America don't condemn
the murder being practiced under their noses and in their names? Because no-one
else is. America is too busy trying to appear non-judgmental and worrying about
what everyone is saying about us. For shame.
Tell me again, what religion is it that uses women and babies as cannon fodder?
Why, its Islam, the religion of peace. I'd call this shameful, if shame were still
in vogue. Its not. America is a guilt society, whose primary motivation is to appear non-judgmental
and politically correct. The multiculturalist crowd has convinced a large portion
of Americans that all cultures are equal. We spend our time trying to understand
the unimaginable instead of condemning it. Meanwhile, the terrorists are laughing
at our naivety, as they plot to kill anyone who doesn't ascribe to their faith.
Islam is a society based largely on shame, and views any acquiesance as a sign of
weakness. Like a spoiled child whose every whim is given consideration, Muslims
have figured out that all they have to do is whine and all of America will try to
sooth them, showering them with attention, thereby legitimizing their complaints.
Americans then pat themselves on the back for being "tolerant" and "understanding".
Before America banned shame, it was an effective deterrent. I dare say terrorists
would think twice about blowing up women and children if they were branded as impotent
cowards, devoid of honor, instead of being hailed as holy martyrs. For that matter,
we could probably put a dent in gang violence by subjecting our own homegrown thugs to a
couple days in the stocks, in front of all their friends. Shaming them, instead
of providing them the rite of passage into 'manhood' a prison sentence now provides.
But no, America would condemn that as shameful.
Alas, shame in America is now limited to those speaking a truth no one wants to
acknowledge. Shame in America is heaped on dirty capitalists who provide jobs and
all the money liberals patronizingly parcel out to feed a hungry world. Shame is reserved for
anyone guilty enough to have amassed more money than their neighbors. Shame is reserved
for those Americans who are impertinent enough to dare judge other cultures or call a spade a spade.
I never agreed to these rules. I was not consulted when the self-anointed
elites began setting arbitrary standards of behavior that now affect us all. I've decided
not abide by them. Instead, I am going to emulate the real heroes, like Wafa Sultan, a Sunni Muslim, who
is one of the very few that dare speak out against the "religion"
of Islam, saying "Any
belief that chops off the heads of its critics is doomed to turn into terrorism
If Islam sanctions the killing of innocents then Islam is not a legitimate religion.
It is a shameful parody, lacking honor and not worthy of respect. Shame on
those who enable it by not roundly denouncing it. And shame on our elected officials,
those who value world
opinion over the security and honor of their own country.
Readers who would label me judgmental (i.e.: having an opinion) would do well
to think how the world would change if a few more individuals and countries started
pronouncing judgment and heaping much deserved shame on the backwards, barbaric,
murderous, immature, impotent, nihilistic, baby killing Neanderthals, who have hijacked
a once great religion and turned it into an aberrant ideology that casts shame on
the real religion of Islam.
