IV. Thou Shalt Honor Radical Islamists

“If a fellow called Mohammed mows down a bunch of students”, Mark Steyn once wrote, then it is “just one of those things.” Indeed, when Muslimscommit the atrocities that their particular religion teaches them to commit, political correctness and appeasement by the Left results in our being kept in the dark. This is clear in the failure of so many on the Left to point out the jihadist nature of the Fort Hood massacre perpetrated by Nidal Malik Hasan. Most troubling, however, is that we find the Left frequently taking the wrong side on issues related to 9/11, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other areas directly related to national security. Tea Party groups protesting anti-Semitism are smeared as hate-mongers, while radical Islamists are honored.Jane Fonda must be proud.

One recent example of the honor Islamists receive in the leftist press is Arianna Huffington‘s decision to give a platform to stealth jihadist Tariq Ramadan. This grandson of the founder of the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood was allowed to make the case for the Muslim Brotherhood‘s participation in Egypt’s political process.

By honoring radicals with platforms through political correctness and appeasement and turning a blind eye to the radical Islamist agenda right here in America, the leftist media is responsible for misinforming Americans about the most dangerous threat to our national security. Meanwhile, thesmearing of all who oppose anti-Semitism and jihad adds insult to injury.

I’m reminded of a quote from the Hebrew Scriptures, which all so-called “People of the Book” should heed:

Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.



V. Thou Shalt Ignore Islamists’ Murderous Jihad Against “Infidels”

Islamists routinely call for a second Holocaust and have engaged in unspeakable horrors against the people of Israel, not to mention womenchildren,apostates and homosexuals. During recent years, jihad has been responsible for an ever-growing number of Christian deaths in Islamist countries throughout the world. Perhaps first among them, as of today, are the Coptic Orthodox Christians, especially in newly “democratized” Egypt. While theObama Administration has expressed interest in the Muslim Brotherhood having a place at the table, the plight of Christians in Egypt has been virtuallyignored. Frequently found are articles about how wonderful the status of the Copts is in Egypt. But ‘hearts and rainbows‘ accounts are merely anecdotes that distract millions of us from the sufferings of the Coptic community-at-large.

On February 24, we learned of Egyptian military attacks, with live ammunition and RPGs, on multiple monasteries in Egypt.

For the second time in as many days, Egyptian armed force stormed the 5th century old St. Bishoy monastery in Wadi el-Natroun, 110 kilometers from Cairo. Live ammunition was fired, wounding two monks and six Coptic monastery workers. Several sources confirmed the army’s use of RPG ammunition. Four people have been arrested including three monks and a Coptic lawyer who was at the monastery investigating yesterday’s army attack. [...]

[...] The army also attacked the Monastery of St. Makarios of Alexandria in Wady el-Rayan, Fayoum, 100 km from Cairo. It stormed the monastery and fired live ammunition on the monks. Father Mina said that one monk was shot and more than ten have injuries caused by being beaten with batons.

The only mention of this at the New York Times consists of one sentence buried in a March 3 article which mentions only the knocking down of the walls of one monastery. Not even the destruction of a home for handicapped children will pierce their hearts enough to report on the “utterly inhuman“ jihad.
