A vehicle for venting on philosophy, religion, and the general state of things. Proprietor: C. W. Powell

Note. British Muslims don't like Blair's war on terror.

"Tony Blair has been warned by leading British Muslims that the Iraq war and the UK's failure to use its influence to end Israeli attacks on civilians are fuelling extremism at home. Their views are set out in a letter as a full-page advertisement in newspapers." The Independent

If Muslims in America and other places west are serious this is what they can do, I have a few suggestions. If they are afraid of their neighbors, if they are afraid of "profiling," [which we have been doing for years--it's called affirmative action], if they want to be good citizens of America or other lands, then they need to DO some things, as opposed to moaning and groaning about being mistreated.

1. Let them in no uncertain terms denounce all expressions of hatred for the West, for Christianity, for Israel, and other forms of racism. If their religion is an advanced and more perfect religion, then they should go and learn what it means, "love you enemies, pray for them that despitefully use you." If their faith cannot understand how God could die to give life to men, then their religion is far below the doctrine of Christ. Jesus did not send his disciples out to kill the enemies by blowing them up with bombs strapped to Christian children. Christians have not always lived up to the ideals of the Master, but they have never stooped to THAT. Even the Jewish faith is better than that. They cannot see how God could die, but they do renounce suicide and believe in enduring suffering, rejecting the coward's way out.

2. Let them turn evidence over about teachers in Mosques that teach that suicide is noble and such martyrdom is worthy. Let them take out full page ads in our newspapers denouncing those who teach such things. Put their money where their mouths are. Otherwise, shut up and go home.

3. Let them turn evidence over about those who are plotting suicide missions to the proper authorities and bear witness in trial against their own, if their own are suicidal monsters. If this is not a teaching of Islam, then let them be up front about it and treat suicide with the horror it deserves. Otherwise, shut up and go home.

4. Solomon said it: "All that hate me [Wisdom] love death." [Prov 8:36] There is nothing godly about loving death and promoting death, for God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. When the insane man regained his senses, he no longer was content to live among the tombs. [Mark 5] Those who what to live among the dead should go back to where the killing fields are.

5. Is this the gratitude the West gets for allowing Muslims to live in America, work at good jobs, get a good education, build their mosques, and live in peace? If the Islamic Americans do not take the lead in combatting the suicidal maniacs of Islam in no uncertain terms, there will be a backlash in America and Western Europe that they will not believe. The West has learned the Christian lessons of tolerance, of patience, and long suffering, but there is a vigor and a hardiness that Islam does not want to unleash. We are the children of Charles Martel, Charlemagne, Ferdinand and Isabella, and Sobieski. Beware the wrath of patient men.

6. Do something for your own people. Quit wallowing in self pity and do something to help the poor and suffering in the Islamic world [the cure is capitalism and freedom]. The oil money alone should have transformed the region except that Islam has allowed itself to be mislead by demagogues that have kept the people in bondage, fostered their self-hatred and hatred for each other, while lining their own pockets and stained their hands with the blood of their own, spending the wealth of the people to support murder and violence. It was not Israel or President Bush who filled the mass graves in Iraq. Islam must learn to face truth and not allow itself to comfort itself with lies. Those who think that they alone should be permitted to live do not understand or deserve the gift of life.

“Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:” (Isaiah 28:15 AV)
