“I’m a woman,” says a man, and the Left says, “sure, why not.”
“We’re Islamic,” say Islamic terrorists, and the Left says, “no you’re not.”
I (The Analytical Economist) cannot understand the Left’s denial of reality when it comes to Islam. Do the actions of terrorists represent all Muslims? Of course not — no one has ever claimed that. But do the actions of terrorists represent what the Koran commands of them? If our liberal friends actually bothered to read the book they mindlessly defend, they’d find that the answer is yes.
Jihad Watch director Robert Spencer gives a four-minute crash course every liberal needs to see.
Here’s just a sampling of the verses from the video:
Sahih Muslim 1:33: It has been narrated on the authority of Abdullah b. ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish prayer, and pay Zakat and if they do it, their blood and property are guaranteed protection on my behalf except when justified by law, and their affairs rest with Allah.
Sahih Bukhari 8:387: Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.”
I wonder how liberals will explain this one away, as it certainly does portray Islam in a negative light. Is the Koran Islamophobic?
