Demopaths show their Fangs: Are they Jumping the Gun?

Steven Emerson reports on a demonstration of the Islamic Thinkers Society in front of the Israeli consulate in NYC. The website is classic “civil society”:

Our struggle is always intellectual & political non-violent means.

The slogans chanted tear aside any mask of civility.

Zionists, Zionists You will pay! The Wrath of Allah is on its way!
Israeli Zionists You shall pay! The Wrath of Allah is on its way!
The mushroom cloud is on its way! The real Holocaust is on its way!

We are not your average Muslims, We are the Muslims of Was al Sunnah

We will not accept the United Nations, they are the criminals themselves
They get paid by the Israeli and the US government to do their job.
We don’t recognize United Nations as a body
We only recognize Allah

Israel won’t last long… Indeed, Allah will repeat the Holocaust right on the soil of Israel
Takbeer!
Response: Allahu Akbar!

No wonder they call you sons of apes and pigs because that’s what you are.

We know many government services are watching us
Such as the FBI…CIA…Mossad, Homeland Security…
We know we are getting on their nerves
And so are you….
So we say the hell with you!
May the FBI burn in Hell
CIA burn in Hell
Mossad burn in Hell
Homeland Security burn in hell!!

Islam will dominate the world
Islam is the only solution
Islam will dominate the world
Islam is the only solution
[editor's note -- purely by non-violent means of course!]
Takbeer!
La ilaha il Allah, Muhammad-ur Rasool Allah

Another mushroom cloud, right in the midst of Israel!
Takbeer!! Allahu Akbar!


Dan Pipes wonders
if this might not be salutary in waking people up to the real agenda behind their previously civil facade. It seems to be a race between the cognitive egocentrism of the liberals who refuse to believe any American Muslims could really be this base, and the triumphalism of Islamists who, encouraged by the slowness of Americans to realize what they’re up to, start to speak more freely.

The real problem for the West is: how do we wake up to the danger without becoming fascists? And the time constraint is, the longer we take to wake up, the more likely we will fall into fascism when we do. Right now, the politically correct view that insists on seeing the best, no matter how unrealistic, actually makes the situation much worse.

    I think we should encourage the moderate muslims to express their ideas in this contemporary debate. Their voices are capital for the future of this religion and it’s relationship with other ones. Naturally, they have to show up, to denounce these facislamist remarks. The advent of a moderate muslim population could overcome such extremists thoughts. It may be long and sinuous, it is nonetheless the best option we have. (occidentals actions are perceived as aggresions) I think remarks coming from moderate “brothers” would be more effcient. So Moderates, stand up!

  2. RL says:

    Vladimir, I agree with you. the panel at BU last month on islam and moderation repeatedly ran aground on discussions of the ways in which any muslim who embraces democratic values becomes an “oreo.” (of course they didn’t use that phrase, but that’s what they meant. if you sound like a westerner you’ve lost your manhood and your honor.

    I have just reread an exceptional passage in David Cook’s Understanding Jihad which explains the connection between taqfir (denouncing a fellow muslim as an apostate) and the silence of the moderates. i’ll be posting it shortly.

    i think there are ways to strengthen the moderate muslims, and among other things it means getting tough with the non-moderates — especially the moderate sounding demopaths. but that’s no easy task.

    The more I learn, the more I think Ann Coulter had a point.

    and that point was… (why do i have to ask?)

    THe first step in this process is to make it a priority and to stop in fighting. How can we win a war against islamofacists when we can’t stop infighting between th democratic left and right.

    Our internal divisions are playing to their benefit.

    THis war will not be won by a divided west.

    Democrats and republicans must come together in the US to have a chance.

    Further, the Europeans must also learn to stop basing the US and come to grips with us as allies against a common foe.

    I just can’t understand how feminists can be fighting government policies that are combating the subjegation of woman in the a broad swath of the world.

    Or how liberals can rail against policies that are designed to fight a foe that wishes to eliminate freedom and limit free speach.

    Or how gays are can be against a fight against a foe that would outlaw gays and view it as cause for capital punishment.

    If we can’t find common ground and come together we will not have the will to fight this battle. Every invective thrown at the other side gives succor to our enemies. Every “moonbat” or “wingnut” assertion adds to the divisiness.
