The Best Weapon against Islam

With the Cartoons of Blasphemy enjoying a fresh round of outrage today, on yet another Islamic Day of Rage (i.e. Friday), it's worth nothing what by far the best weapon we have against Islam and their Jihad.

Not smart bombs, 12.7mm sniper rifles, or IED jammers--although those certainly have their uses.

The best weapon, the one our Muslim enemies loathe and seethe against? Weaponized ridicule. They simply cannot stand for themselves--and especially their supposed god and prophet, in whose names all their villainy is justified--to be laughed at or made fun of.

As quoted in a comment at a recent post at Belmont Club-

Ridicule is a powerful weapon of warfare. It can be a strategic weapon. The United States must take advantage of it against terrorists, proliferators, and other threats. Ridicule is vital because:

It sticks.

The target can’t refute it.

It is almost impossible to repress, even if driven underground.

It spreads on its own and multiplies naturally.

It gets better with each re-telling.

It boosts morale at home.

Our enemy shows far greater intolerance to ridicule than we.

Ridicule divides the enemy, damages its morale, and makes it less attractive to supporters and prospective recruits.

The ridicule-armed warrior need not fix a physical sight on the target. Ridicule will find its own way to the targeted individual. To the enemy, being ridiculed means losing respect. It means losing influence. It means losing followers and repelling potential new backers.

To the enemy, ridicule can be worse than death. At least many enemies find death to be a supernatural martyrdom.

Ridicule is much worse: destruction without martyrdom: A fate worse than death.

And they have to live with it.

Another barbaric Islamic law is that of the Mohalel. When a man actually pays another man to marry his ex-wife for one night and have sex with her and divorce her the next day so that the two of them can remarry.

In Islam a man has the unilateral right to divorce (by itself a violation of women¹s right), under following procedures. A man can divorce his wife once, by telling her "I divorce you" and if they are faced with each other the divorce is nullified and they can resume normal relations. A man can divorce his wife twice, "I divorce you, I divorce you" and then if they have sexual intercourse the divorce is nullified and they can resume their marital relation. However, once a man divorces his wife three times "I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you" in presence of a witness. Then in order for them to get back together the man has to find a "Mohallel" a man who would marry his wife for one night and then divorce her so he and his ex-wife can go back together. Many times these Mohallels do not divorce the wife the next day. And there is nothing the ex-husband can do about it.

I'm a muslim. There are NO such law as you said in quran. This is a great liar. Don't just accept what others or media said about Islam. Make your research first whether is true or not. I offer myself to have intellectual discussion to find the truth about Islam. Email me any question about Islam at zulhilmi2070@gmail.com

The marriage "laws" cited are nowhere in the Quran. In fact such man-made laws violate the Quran which says people are not allowed to invent their own rules and attribute such lies to God.

I can't help but laugh at people that mock Allah though. Allah is the same deity that gave Moses his 10 commandments. Last time I checked Christians worshiped that deity too. The 10 commandments are pretty important to Christians I had thought...so shouldn't the God that handed them down to Moses be important too?

It makes absolutely no sense to shower adoration, love and worship on one portion of the Trinity that they hold so dear (Jesus)....then turn around and heap insult, condemnation and cast aspersions on the other portions of said Trinity!
