On the backdrop of the British soldier Les Rigby’s horrendous murder on a street in London by Jihadi Muslims to the shouts of “Allahu Akbar”, American anti-Jihadist activists Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller were slated to attend Britain's Armed Forces Day event on June 29 to lay flowers to show solidarity with the British Army. Their trip is now being challenged by Muslim groups, who want the British Government to bar them from entering the country.
Robert Spencer appeared on BBC and had a debate with an Imam, who opposes the visit by Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller. In the debate, the Imam stated that only 1% of Muslims were responsible for the crimes being committed in the name of Islam, while the other 99%, who are following the Quran, are not. So, why the entire Muslim community must be judged by the actions of a few deviant extremists as Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller et al. do!
Spencer quoted a number of horrific Quran verses like verse 9:29 calling for war and subjugation and imposing Jizya taxes on the Christians and Jews, verse 9:28 which calls non-Muslims "unclean", verse 4:34 which sanctions beating of women etc. As expected, the Imam immediately accused Spencer of taking those verses out of context without failing to offer what right contexts are. At no time did the Imam condemn these awful teachings than only charging Spencer with misrepresenting them. The Imam even misquoted Quran 5.32 stating that “if one person is killed it is as if all mankind has been killed” leaving out the segment that says "except for those who make mischief and corruption in the land". And he also failed to quote the next verse 5:33, which defines who such mischief-makers are and what they deserve: “The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land (i.e. those refuse to accept Islam and possibly criticize it etc.) is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.”
By making these kinds of statements—a perfect example of application of the Islamic doctrine of al-Taqiya (deceiving the infidels) to defend the evil teachings of Islam—this Imam, like the usual moderate Muslims, was only providing religious cover for the Islam-inspired violent and evil acts of the so-called deviant extremist Muslims. Although moderate Muslims like the Imam, on programs like this, talk about deviant extremists among them who pervert or hijack Islam, one is left wondering how those 1% extremists could thrive amongst the very vociferous moderate 99%, who rise up in arms every time a critic of Islam says anything about Islam not liked by them.
Where are world’s 99% moderate and peace-loving Muslims marching in the streets against the evils committed the extremists 1%, such as murdering and persecuting Christians, Hindus, Buddhists throughout the Middle East, Africa, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Thailand etc.? These Jihadists commonly justify their actions by quoting verses of the Quran like 9.29, 9.5, 5.33, 3:151, 2:217 etc.?
Where are the 99% of the 3,000,000 million peace-loving British Muslims marching in the streets of Britain condemning the beheading of Les Rigby and all the other acts of carnage that are being committed by the 1% extremists?
Where are the 99% peace-loving British Muslims marching in the streets of Britain condemning the rape and gang-rapes of young kafir girls by their deviant Muslim brothers?
Where are the 99% peace-loving British Muslims marching to their Mosques to eject the Imams, who teach hatred and violence from the Quran and Sunnah, which has been repeatedly documented by investigative TV programs in Britain?
Where are the 99% peace-loving British Muslims marching in the streets demanding an end to anti-Semitic teachings of Islam that makes up 17% of the sacred Islamic texts?
Where are the 99% law-abiding British Muslims marching in the streets condemning the creation of “NO GO SHARIA LAW ZONES” in British cities by extremist Muslims, where British law no longer applies?
The entire Muslim community generally rises up when a critic make a little slight, generally a deserving one, about their religion. Then the answer to their not marching in the streets when the minuscule number of extremist Muslims pervert their religion so horribly only means that they have no complaints against those evil acts committed by their so-called extremist coreligionists. And why should they? Don’t those extremists readily quote from Islam’s holy texts to justify those horrendous actions, just like the murderers of Les Rigby did? Could Muslims, extremists or moderates, go against the writs and dictates of the Quran and Sunnah?
All these only obviate the fact that the cleverly-created "extremist" and "moderate" paradigm in the Muslim community works in perfect symbiosis to help them attain the goals of Islam in today’s world, where an all-out extremist path, like in the olden days, are impractical because of the disadvantageous power equations for Muslims. So, while the 1% extremists advance the writs and demands of the Quran and Sunnah to make Islam victorious and the only acceptable religion and system of governance in the whole world, the other 99% act as cover for them, so that the well-meaning infidels won't take all-out actions against the threats Islam poses to them, to the world.
We must remember that the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah are much more evil and dangerous than those contained in Hitler’s Mein Kampf. Imagine if the Anglo-American axis applied the 99% moderate versus 1% extremist Nazi that worked in the fashion it is working today with Muslims. What the world would have looked like today?
