‘Moderate’ Malaysia Update
Jihad is everywhere. Just look at the front page of any major newspaper, or watch the first ten minutes of the news on CNN or the BBC on any day. Terrorism, the great euphemism for Islam-inspired holy war, AKA ‘Jihad’, gets all the attention and all the headlines.
But bombs and bullets is by no means Jihad’s only modus operandi. It is the loudest and the most obvious, especially for its victims. Indeed, there is another form of Jihad, one that I call the ‘Creeping Jihad.’
Creeping Jihad works like this. Everyone knows a frog, if placed in a pot of boiling water, will jump right out. But if the frog is placed in room temperature water, and if the water temperature is slowly raised to the boiling point, the frog will fail to notice until it’s too late. Creeping Jihad works the same incremental way.
Thus, quietly, generation after generation, virtually unnoticed, the Creeping Jihad moves forward, taking some over here, claiming more over there. At times, the Jihad will move three steps forward, and then tactically retreat two steps backward, resulting in a net gain for Dar al Islam. It is persistent, inherent, irrefutable part of Islam.
Here is the Creeping Jihad at work in Malaysia, right now:
Malaysia is considering its multi-cultural credentials after a crowd of Muslims (last) Sunday broke up a meeting called to defend the rights of religious minorities.
The country's leaders condemned the disturbances, but the BBC's Jonathan Kent in Kuala Lumpur says non-Muslims feel increasingly beleaguered.
"I'm becoming an alien in Malaysia, in my own country," says Dr Jacob George.
The president of the Consumers Association of Subang and Shah Alam in Selangor State has been helping to organise efforts to stop the local authorities in the ethnic Malay-Muslim dominated city of Shah Alam from demolishing a 107-year-old Hindu temple.
Earlier in April another 19th-Century temple was demolished a few kilometres away in the capital Kuala Lumpur.
The authorities said in both cases the temples' founders did not have permission to build them.
This is not the only time that the authorities have literally attacked non Islamic faiths in Malaysia. If anything, it’s accelerating:
Last year the compound of a cult known as the Sky Kingdom was levelled by the authorities, weeks after an attack by a Muslim mob. Many of the cultists are now on trial.
And just before Christmas a newly completed church of an indigenous community near Skudai in Johor state was reduced to rubble, closely monitored by Islamic department officials and the police.
Creeping Jihad is not content with destroying newly jumped up churches and alleged cults, demolishing 100+ year old Hindu temples, or breaking up ‘religious minority’ meetings. Jihad, and Islam, stretches its tentacles into every facet of society.
Including some areas that you wouldn’t probably suspect:
The police recently ordered non-Muslim policewomen to wear Muslim headscarves for their annual parade, something that many non-Muslims felt set a worrying precedent.
And then there have been moves by some local authorities to ban or restrict dog ownership - conservative Muslims see dogs as unclean - and prosecute couples for holding hands or kissing in public.
"During our parents' time there was no problem when you hold hands in the park," says Fong Po Kuan, a non-Muslim opposition MP.
"There's a creeping Islamicisation in our society and this isn't appropriate because we're a multi-religious, multi-racial country."
Actually, Mr. Fong, Islam sees it this way—Malaysia is an Islamic state, Islam is in charge, and the dhimmis/infidels had better get used to that idea, pronto.
