The threat in perspective

July 17, 2007

I have caused some controversy at Salient in the comments thread related to Perrigo’s article; Death to Islamofascism. Some left wingers allege that the same could be said about Christianity. The reality is that while almost all religions have a violent fundamentalist minority, in Islam that fundamentalist minority is bigger and more worrying than other fundamentalist minorities. I asked them to put the following numbers into perspective:
Number of murders and attempted murders of abortionists by Christian fundamentalists in the US and Canada between 1989 and 2004: 23
Number of people murdered by Islamic fundamentalists last week (July 7- july 13): 623 . Thats 600 more in one week than anti-abortionists over 15 years.
  I also pointed out that more people are murdered each year by Islamic fundamentalists than have been killed in total during the Spanish inquisition, and more civilians killed in two hours on September 11 2001 than in 26 years 91969-1995) in Northern Ireland (both facts from the religon of peace). Despite this, they are now challenging for the figures for deaths in Iraq (no doubt they blame the whole lot on Bush), Timothy Mcveigh in Oklahoma, and number of African children that “die from malnutrition because the pope says condoms are forbidden” (I’m sure they would prefer it if those African children were murdered in their mothers wombs before they were born), Palestinians killed by Isreali soldiers e.t.c.
  The problem for them is there is a very big difference between the deaths of civilians in Iraq killed by the US military, and deaths caused by Islamic terrorists. In Iraq, civilian deaths do occur at the hands of the US military, and did occur in the invasion, but these were the accidental by-products of a invasion that was to prevent Sadamm from getting weapons of mass destruction, and liberate the Iraqi people from Sadamm Hussein, or operations against the insurgents and islamic terrorists in Iraq. On September 11 and in many other terrorist attacks since, killing civilians was the primary purpose of the operation. Second, the US invasion of Iraq, Oklahoma bombing e.t.c weren’t done for religous reasons.
The harsh reality of fundamentalist Islam is seen correctly by Perigo, and not by the left wingers. it is an ideology of hate aimed at the murder of ordinary civilians like you and me, and kills far more people than extremists of all other religons do. although there are many differences between the threat posed by Islamic fundamentalism today, and the threat posed by Nazi Germany in the 1930s,, there are many similarities including both sharing a common hatred of freedom and democracy, both share a common total disregard for the lives of those considered to be racially inferrior or infidels, both advocate programs of genocide against jews and other innocent civilians, both hate free speech, both aim at world domination, and both can be best described with the word evil.

Islamic fundamentalism is the biggest evil force for hate, violence and destruction, not only in the world today, but since the death of Hitler.


Death to Islamofascism

July 16, 2007

In Salient, Lindsay Perigo, has written a opinon piece about Islamic fundamentalism, which he labbels “Islamofascism”. Perigo doesn’t mince his words, describing the Islamic Fundamentalist iodeology of hate for what it is, describing them as:
squalid savages, these bigoted barbarians, these hysterical humanity-haters, these tawdry terrorists, these god-ridden grotesques, these ignoble ignoramuses, these genocidal jihadists”. Although the rheotic of Perigo may be harsh, it quite accurately describes a ideology of hate which glorifies violence and advocates genocide for what it is. And my and perigos rheotic is far more moderate than the people were describing, who carry placards denouncing the Danish cartoons saying “behead those who insult Islam” and “the hell with freedom”. Whats more distirbing than the placards is their willingness to practise what they preach, by bombing ordinary western civilians and flying planes into buildings.The article provides a response to this ideology of hate: Human beings worthy of the title must rise up worldwide and shout in irreversable unison: “Enough of this primoridal primitivism! We who are civilised are revolted by it and shall rebuff it at every turn1” Muslaims must discover rationality and decency; westerners must rediscover them, and as a matter of urgency, speak up for them!.
