Detroit Terror Attack: A Murderous Ideology Tolerated for Too Long

A whiff of common sense here. People are beginning to wake up from their slumbers. Surely, the tide must be beginning to turn. It must turn if the West is to be won.

This viewpoint from The Telegraph is refreshing indeed; yet it doesn’t go far enough. Radical Islamism is a symptom of a fanatic belief in Islam. In many ways, it is the true belief of a Muslim, one who, in their eyes, submits to the will of Allah, but who in anyone else’s eyes can only be thought of submitting to the ideology of a death cult: Islam.

If we are to win this war being waged against the West, otherwise known as the Jihad – an intermittent war which has been waged against the “infidel West” since Islam’s inception – then we have to come to the realization that Islam is not a religion per se, but a religio-political system which recognizes NO SEPARATION OF POLITICS AND RELIGION. The separation of politics and religion is the sine qua non of democracy. No democracy can exist without it. Islam is the true enemy of democracy and freedom. No true democracy will ever exist where Islam is the dominant ideology. This is so not only because Islam recognizes no separation of mosque and state, but also because Islam recognizes no diversity. None whatsoever! Islam recognizes one religion – Islam, and one way of life – the Islamic way of life. In an age of multiculturalism and diversity, it is incredible that we should tolerate such an intolerant ideology in our midst, for truly, if Islam gets the upper hand here in the West – and it is looking increasingly likely in the long- or medium-term, then there will be no diversity. There will be only Islam. Apostates will be killed, as will homosexuals. It will then be a case of convert, die, or pay the jizyah, the special tax levied on the infidel in return for some measure of protection. Remember this: Multiculturalism and diversity are anathema to Islam!

Westerners have faffed around, played around with our language for far, far too long. We have come up with all kinds of weird and wonderful expressions, euphemisms all, and all thought-up and devised so as not to appear Islamophobic, so as not to point the finger at a religion and thereby appear religiously bigotted, and to keep the peace at any price. The euphemisms are well-known to all by now: Islamism, radical Islamism (as though there could ever be a non-radical Islamism!), radical Jihadism (again, as though there could ever be a benign, non-radical Jihadism), and so on and so forth. There are but three words that we need in our vocabulary: Islam, Muslim, and the Jihad. An Islamist is a devout follower of the faith of Islam. A believer that dots the ‘i’s’ and crosses the ‘t’s’. Contrary to popular Western myth, he is not one who has perverted his faith; rather, he is the real thing. Just as much the real thing as Coke is to cola.

The Muslims considered by the West as being peaceful and law-abiding are actually people who do not follow central aspects of their faith such as the Jihad, the killing of apostates, honour killings, and other repugnant tenets of that faith.

That The Telegraph has now had the courage to liken ‘Islamism’ to Nazism is to be lauded. It should be noted, however, that this fact has been pointed out on this website since the website was started. Naturally, it was also pointed out in my book. Having taken this bold step forward, The Telegraph now needs to take the next step and call a spade a spade.– © Mark

THE TELEGRAPH: Telegraph View: Jihadist Islamism is comparable to Nazism in many respects. The British public realises this; so do the intelligence services.

Friday's attempt to blow up a transatlantic airliner by a British-educated Islamist was foiled by the bravery of its passengers and crew. We cannot assume that we will be lucky next time. And the indications are that there will be a next time. According to police sources, 25 British-born Muslims are currently in Yemen being trained in the art of bombing planes. But most of these terrorists did not acquire their crazed beliefs in the Islamic world: they were indoctrinated in Britain. Indeed, thousands of young British Muslims support the use of violence to further the Islamist cause – and this despite millions of pounds poured by the Government into projects designed to prevent Islamic extremism.

Is it time for a fundamental rethink of Britain's attitude towards domestic Islamism? Consider this analogy. Suppose that, in several London universities, Right‑wing student societies were allowed to invite neo-Nazi speakers to address teenagers. Meanwhile, churches in poor white neighbourhoods handed over their pulpits to Jew-hating admirers of Adolf Hitler, called for the execution of homosexuals, preached the intellectual inferiority of women, and blessed the murder of civilians. What would the Government do? It would bring the full might of the criminal law against activists indoctrinating young Britons with an inhuman Nazi ideology – and the authorities that let them. Any public servants complicit in this evil would be hounded from their jobs. >>> | Tuesday, December 29, 2009

THE TELEGRAPH: Obama tries to find new words to fight terrorism: Barack Obama has launched a new offensive against jihadi terrorism – which is to say, a new rhetorical offensive. Having discovered that the earlier Obama doctrine of “reaching out” to the Islamic fundamentalist enemies of western democracy has made no difference whatever to their determination to blow innocent people out of the sky (or, in the case of Iran, to build a nuclear bomb), he is opening another verbal front. >>> Janet Daley | Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Decade ends, Muslims continue to act Muslim

Happy holidays from the Enemies of Islam here at PI! Let's see what the members of the 'Religion of Peace' have been up to this holiday season so far.

A Muslim hailing from a rich banking family in Nigeria (not to be confused with the rich Nigerians who always email you and offer to split $15 million) suddenly becomes 'radicalized'--in other words, he internalized the teachings of the Quran. And on December 25th, the same perp tries to blow up an Airbus with 300 people on board. The only reason the devout Muslim failed in his quest for martyrdom is because of a faulty detonator, and because the security system of last resort on board the aircraft--i.e. the passengers--reacted with their usual aplomb and speed. After all, if you're a passenger and it's your own ass on the line, you'd react pretty fast, too.

Meanwhile, in that little corner of hell on earth otherwise known as the 'Islamic Republic of Iran', the police have started firing live ammunition on the ever-growing crowds who are protesting that despicable regime's existence. The body count is rising--no one can really say how many have died so far, and of course, the Mullahs will deny that they have killed anyone, no matter how high the pile of bodies gets.

The Iranian resistance, who go toe to toe daily empty-handed against gun-wielding thugs, is pleading for help from the outside. Don't worry, my Iranian friends-- Obama is on the case! He has already issued a strongly-worded statement 'deploring' the increasing violence while he keeps playing golf on vacation in Hawaii. That'll learn 'em!

Muslims outside of Iran, of course, can't be bothered with all the violence inside Iran. Not their problem! Who cares about a bunch of heretical Shiites, anyway? It's only news if Jews, Crusaders and Zionists kill Muslims (or can be reasonably or unreasonably accused of doing so).

And the brainless buffoon of a bureaucrat in charge of 'Homeland Security' in the USA is drum-beating a senselessly upbeat message about how the 'system worked' and no flights got blown up on Christmas. Excuse me? How did someone on a terror 'watch list' board an international flight with high explosives? Airport security, where were you and what were you doing? And what the hell does 'watch list' mean anyway? It means we watch the bad guys (who are generally Muslims) get on planes unmolested, lest we somehow needlessly trample on their human rights, yes?

Thanks to Muslims, we haven't been able to carry water bottles into airports for years. And we cannot meet our friends or relatives at the gate anymore, thanks to the 'martyrs' of 9-11. Now, thanks to another devout slave of Allah, we'll all be forced to do without pillows and blankets during long flights, be confined to our seats for part of the flight like we're little kids in kindergarten, and have to abide by whatever other stupid security rules the useless bureaucrats can dream up. You gotta love the government. They can't catch Muslims on terror watch lists, but they can punish the innocent afterward.

With another ten years of Jihad against the airlines, at this rate, we'll end up having to fly naked by the end of the next decade--that is, if we're able to fly at all.

From Russia With Love

First of all, Merry Christmas to everyone!

I was in Moscow day before yesterday (yup, the once enemy territory). The city is so beautiful with its grand architecture (specifically the Red Square) and its Ladas, the car that runs no matter what the weather conditions. On top of all that, all the snow around made the beauty of the city even more impressive.

On the other hand, the people of Moscow are some of the rudest people I have come across. But then, that might have something to do with them being under Communism for such a long time. Where all their lives were dedicated (or supposed to be) to the State and nothing else. All they lived and died for was the State and over a period of less than 3 years, that was gone. All of a sudden these people find themselves in the world of Capitalism (or some form of it) and they have to start all over again.

People in Moscow, as some might assume, weren't really poor at all. I actually saw more Maybachs in one night in Moscow than I have seen in Dubai since I have been here. The streets were filled with expensive cars that I won't (and can't) even dream of buying. People in Moscow are rich and they make sure to spend money wherever they go (they have many monday-thursday 24 hour "night clubs"). They are not happy though. Any store you go, the people behind the counter look at you like the enemy has entered. You speak in English and you are their worst customer. They don't care whether you buy something or not. Well, actually not only if you're a foreigner but they don't even care if their own people buy something or not. They probably still have the old mentality...that people will come and buy no matter how they're treated because the supplies are scarce. Although that is not the case anymore as the stores have regular supplies but the mentality of the people will take time to change!

Another thing, I can actually count on my finger-tips how many people I saw in Moscow actually smiling. Its not like they are ugly people or anything, I think they're very beautiful people but they don't know how to smile. They look depressed. It makes you sad to look at them. A frown and rudeness is a common thing in Moscow it seems...its a way of life.

I also noticed, with the old technology around, that Russians are very intelligent. But because, again, they had been State-focused for such a long time that now that they're somewhat free to think for themselves and on their own, they have no idea what's going on. If you notice their behavior around things that are post 1992 for example, you might think they have never been out of their caves (which of course is not the case). What I think is, that their genius has been constrained, and as a result drained for the time being, by the State that never let them think about anything but the betterment of the "fatherland".

My walk down Moscow's streets left me thinking...if Russia had, from the beginning, concepts of liberty, justice and pursuit of happiness embedded in its constitution--they wouldn't have any problem being as great as the United States is today. And vice versa. If these concepts are taken away from the United States, and the government control is expanded over all facets of American life (the process seems to be underway), it won't be long before I write something similar about the American people...that Americans are very intelligent people but their genius has been drained by the State and I find them to be the most unhappy and rude people on earth.

On a positive note though: While people in Moscow still reminisce about the past and sometimes wish the State control would come back, Americans still are very much in control of their own destiny and the government control is still very limited. We'll see what happens in the coming years though.

(I will put up pictures of Moscow soon).

Muslim lies and distortions, rebutted (again)

Recently, a follower of ‘allah’s last prophet’ (lower case intentional) emerged from one of the cracks in cyberspace to defend that peculiar ‘religion’ of his, Islam.  I wanted to rebut this Muslim’s arguments at length.  So have a look at the following—the Muslim’s remarks are in italics (including his spelling and grammatical mistakes), with my rebuttals immediately thereafter.

Are you even a scholar of Islamic studies to be "informing" someone what Islam and the prophetic mission was about? I am sure not becaues there are Christian and Jewish humanities and religious studies scholars who have published their explanations or histiogrpahy of Islam and have yet to make a thesis that Islam is to murder, enslave and war as you accuse it to be.

The implication here is that people like us, or anyone else, have no right to say anything about Islam without years and years of study under some properly vetted Arabic-reading Islamic ‘scholar’.  And even then, only positive remarks about Islam are allowed. 

My opponent is revealing his bald-faced ignorance of the many published books that have already exposed Islam and its murderous, aggressive ways.  Perhaps he hasn’t taken a few moments to examine our sidebar here at this blog.  Furthermore, this Muslim has (obviously) never read any of the books of Robert Spencer, Bat Yeor, Wafa Sultan, Andrew Bostom and other well-read, highly educated writers who, thanks to years of research and study, know exactly what Islam is all about.  I’d suggest you pick up Wafa Sultan’s latest tome, ‘A God who Hates’ and see what she’s talking about (hint…the title is about a certain moon god named ‘allah’), but I know better than to make any suggestions to the likes of you.

You say that those who defend religion provide no evidence of hate? The fact that you state "Islam is not a religion" is hateful as well as providing a narrow, one-sided, totally negative perspective defaming a religion practiced by a billion human beings.

Making an empirical, negative factual observation (i.e. Islam is not a religion) is somehow ‘hateful’ and ‘defamatory’.  Of course, when Muslims themselves or their own ‘holy’ texts lambaste Christians and Jews, or other belief systems, cursing them as evil and wicked, on their own TV channels and inside their mosques every Friday…well, those actions are never ‘defamatory’.  It’s only defamatory when you criticize Islam, never other belief systems.  Got that, everyone? 

You say that Muhammad was such a criminal - well how about christian crusaders, colonialists and imperialists that have a record of millions murdered? How about Jewish occupiars of Arab land who currently are under UN report investigation for human rights violations?! All that was done under the name of religion - so why, like I asked, only slander Islam? Obviously, you have been taught to hate and point blame to only ONE religion. And a religion that is not even the actual practice since your knowledge of it is very limited and negatively biased.

When confronted with ‘Prophet’ Mo’s criminal record, Muslims love to just change the subject, as if the alleged sins of others somehow expunge Mo’s long rap sheet.  Of course, what we’re seeing yet again is more Muslim misdirection, all to make the dhimmis and other weak-minded less mindful of what criminal acts Islam’s supposed prophet actually carried out.

As for the Crusades… Muslims do love talking about the Crusades.  And many westerners love apologizing for them.  To hear both parties tell the story, one would believe that Muslims were just peacefully minding their own business in lands that were legitimately Muslim when Christian armies decided to wage holy war and “murder millions.”

Here are some quick facts.

The first Crusade began in 1095, 460 years after the first Christian city was overrun by Muslim armies, 457 years after Jerusalem was conquered by Muslim armies, 453 years after Egypt was taken by Muslim armies, 443 after Muslims first plundered Italy, 427 years after Muslim armies first laid siege to the Christian capital of Constantinople, 380 years after Spain was conquered by Muslim armies, 363 years after France was first attacked by Muslim armies, 249 years after Rome itself was sacked by a Muslim army, and only after centuries of church burnings, killings, enslavement and forced conversions of Christians.  By the time the Crusades finally began, Muslim armies had conquered two-thirds of the Christian world. 

So this makes the Crusades less an act of naked aggression or imperialism, and more like long-deferred, limited counteroffensives, against a mortal enemy.  I’m not surprised that my Muslim ‘friend’ left out these details.

As for the “Jewish occupiars” (sic) that my opponent so blithely mentions, the Arab occupation of much of Israel (Judea, Samaria, et al) is now in its 1,378th year.

The message of Muhammad was to create a brotherhood and sisterhood that was borderless and not under the tribal structure which was full of rivilary. Your claim that he was a murderer, if you actually studied the history of Muhammad, you will find that he never directly killed someone - it was always through a battle with a military force that attacked his city.

By this logic, Hitler never killed anyone either.

Obviously, if you order the execution of prisoners or the murder of critics by those who are under your command, then you are at least as guilty as those who carry out your orders.  In Mo’s case, the number of people that he had murdered were literally too many for historians to fully know. 

Shall I elucidate? 

Well, there were the men taken prisoner at Badr (including one who cried out for his children at the point of execution), a mother of five (stabbed to death for questioning Mo’s claim to be a prophet), dozens of Jewish citizens, including poets and merchants who were accused of mocking Islam, numerous adulterers, at least one slave girl, 800 Qurayza men and boys taken captive and beheaded on Mo’s order, a Qurayza woman made delirious by the execution of her family, and an unfortunate individual who was tortured to death so that the prophet of Islam could discover his hidden treasure and then “marry” his freshly-widowed wife.

About Jihad, you obviously dont know what Jihad means. Jihad is not a pillar of Islam but some scholars say it is the sixth. Jihad means 'to struggle' and is written down in the Qur'an that the struggle must be exercised in peaceful methods. The only time any human being can use force is if their life is at the moment, directly under threat.

If Jihad is so ‘peaceful’, then why does the Quran (Sura 48:17) mention that the sick and the elderly are exempt from it?  A verse from Bukhari (V4B53N412) states quite plainly that Jihad is Holy War:

"Allah’s Apostle said on the day of the conquest of Mecca, 'There is no migration now, only Jihad, holy battle. And when you are called for Jihad, you should come out at once.'"

Many other verses from the Quran and Bukhari make it plain as day that Muslims are taught to wage holy war—JIHAD—on nonbelievers.  It is written in plain language.  Does these sound like ‘peaceful methods’ to you? 

Stop with spreading misinformation and start spreading love, light and peace...the world seriously does not need anymore of this kind of division.

As usual, Muslims want critics of Islam, like us, to be silent.  Muslims seek to destroy freedom of speech by forcing those who disagree into silence.  Thanks but no thanks!  We have no such intension of stopping with our ‘spreading of misinformation’.  And as for division, you Muslims divided the world into slave and kufr 14 centuries ago, a division that has existed for far too long.

New Dark Age Alert! Muslim Televangelist Takes His Message to Millions

Not your typical preacher: Amr Khaled is trying to modernise the face of Islam. Photograph: BBC

BBC: Amr Khaled's unique brand of Muslim preaching has made him one of the most popular preachers in the world.

Such is his appeal, he was recently named the 13th most influential person in the world by Time Magazine.

In Cairo, his DVDs stand on the top shelves reserved for best sellers in the Virgin record store, next to Bruce Willis and Charlie Chaplin.

His controversial style, comparable to the almost rock star approach of some of America's Christian evangelists, has drawn criticism from the religious establishment and he has moved away from his native Egypt.

Ironically, thanks to the proliferation of satellite channels, he is now able to reach far greater numbers than he could have ever done had his message remained within the confines of a mosque or a lecture hall.

'You're fired'

Now, following on from his hugely successful TV shows - which are watched by millions across the world - Mr Khaled plans to launch his own version of the reality television show The Apprentice.

"The aim of it is not to make money, but to make the youth ready to support the society," he told the BBC. >>> Magdi Abdelhadi, Arab Affairs Analyst, BBC World Service | Thursday, December 17, 2009

חג חנוכה שמח

Pedestrian Infidel would like to wish our Jewish readers and friends a "Chag Chanukah sameach" or very happy Chanukah.  It's important to point out that Muslims would prefer that this holiday, like all other non Muslim holy days, be obliterated in the name of their "perfect and final religion" (which is of course, none of the above). 

As Robert Spencer has said, "...strike a blow for Western civilization! Wish someone a Happy Chanukah!"  We couldn't agree with him more.

Pedestrian Infidel: Finally Blocked By The UAE

We have finally been blocked by the UAE internet controlling authorities. Well, as I mentioned yesterday, my last post was our 1500th post. I guess we are considered a "threat" now. Oh well, can't go wrong there.

Who Controls The World?

So it turns out, I can't really stay away from blogging. Even though I am not spending any time researching new stuff, I am making videos about things I have observed in the past. Here is another video that deals with some conspiracy theories. Let me know what you think. (Oh by the way, this is our 1500th post!!)

Who Controls The World?

A Malaysian in the US

The following was forwarded to me by email.  I cannot vouch for the veracity of this letter, but it's worth restating here regardless.  It speaks real truth to power, truths that most Malaysians either are only dimly aware of or dare not talk about.

I am a female Chinese Malaysian, living in the Washington DC area in the United States . I have read many of the letters that often talk about foreign countries when the writers have no real knowledge of actually living in those countries.

Many draw conclusions about what those countries are like after hearing it from someone else or by reading and hearing about them in the media or after four years in a college town in those countries.

I finished STPM (a standardized Malaysian test taken by all 18 year old Malaysian students- ed) with outstanding results from the prestigious St George's Girls School in Penang . Did I get a university place from the Malaysian government? Nothing. With near perfect scores, I had nothing, while my Malay friends were getting offers to go overseas.

Even those with 2As got into university. I was so depressed. I was my parent's last hope for getting the family out of poverty and at 18, I thought I had failed my parents.

Today, I understand it was the Malaysian Government that had failed me and my family because of its discriminatory policies.

Fortunately, I did not give up and immediately did research at the Malaysian American Commission on Education Exchange (MACEE) to find a university in the US that would accept me and provide all the finances. My family and friends thought I was crazy, being the youngest of nine children of a very poor carpenter. Anything that required a fee was out of our reach.

Based on merit and my extracurricular activities of community service in secondary school, I received full tuition scholarship, work study, and grants to cover the four years at a highly competitive US university.

Often, I took 21 credits each semester, 15 credits each term while working 20 hours each week and maintaining a 3.5 CGPA. A couple of semesters, I also received division scholarships and worked as a TA (teaching assistant) on top of everything else.

For the work study, I worked as a custodian (yes, cleaning toilets), carpet layer, computer lab assistant, grounds keeping, librarian, painter, tour guide, etc. If you understand the US credit system, you will understand this is a heavy load.

Why did I do it? This is because I learnt as a young child from my parents that hard work is an opportunity, to give my best in everything, and to take pride in the work I do. I walked away with a double major and a minor with honours but most of all a great lesson in humility and a great respect for those who are forced to labour in so-called `blue collar' positions.

Those of you who think you know all about Australia , US, or the West, think again. Unless you have really lived in these countries, i.e. paid a mortgage, paid taxes, taken part in elections, you do not understand the level of commitment and hard work it takes to be successful in these countries, not just for immigrants but for people who have lived here for generations.

These people are where they are today because of hard work. (Of course, I am not saying everyone in the US is hardworking.. There is always the lazy lot which lives off of someone else's hard work. Fortunately, they are the minority..)

Every single person, anywhere, should have the opportunity to succeed if they want to put in the effort and be accountable for their own actions. In the end, they should be able to reap what they sow.

It is bearable that opportunities are limited depending on how well-off financially one's family is but when higher education opportunities are race-based, like it is in Malaysia ; it is downright cruel for those who see education as the only way out of poverty.

If you want to say discrimination is here in the US , yes, of course it is.Can you name a country where it doesn't happen? But let me tell you one thing - if you go looking for it, you will find it. But in Malaysia , you don't have to go look for it because it seeks you out, slaps you in your face every which way you turn, and is sanctioned by law!

Here in the US , my children have the same opportunity to go to school and learn just like their black, white, and immigrant friends. At school, they eat the same food, play the same games, are taught the same classes and when they are 18, they will still have the same opportunities. would I want to bring my children back to Malaysia ? So they can suffer the state-sanctioned discrimination as the non-malays have for over 50 years?

The injustice the non-Malay have to suffer in frightening silence is the most damaging problem one has to face throughout one's life. You just have to look at the mighty govt structures which completely favours only one race, the Umno Malay. The Chinese and Indians are treated no better than the illegal Indonesians. Racism and corruption are openly practised by the Malay politicians everywhere, Courts, schools/Uni, police, govt offices, contracts, GLC, NEP, ISA, local govt.

It's so powerful and intimidating that you walk with fear and keep your mouth shut on anything and everything political. Religion is taboo unless you talk good about Islam. As for being a slave in the foreign country, I am a happy 'slave' earning a good income as an IT project manager.

I work five days a week; can talk bad about the president when I want to; argue about politics, race and religion openly; gather with more than 50 friends and family when I want (no permit needed) and I don't worry about the police pulling me over because they say I ran the light when I didn't.

Have we seen the light at the end of the tunnel yet (Anwar Ibrahim)? Or is it the head light of an oncoming Umno train ? Lets hope its the former for the sake of all fair minded Malaysians.

The dream of a Malaysian 'race' in the future is nowhere in sight with the present BN govt. Where is Negara-Ku???

My "Break From Blogging" Video

A Break From Blogging

As I write this, its my 4th (or 5th) consecutive night with partial insomnia. My work load is on the increase and there is so much going on in the world that I feel incapable of giving my brain some rest.

Climategate, Dubai financial crisis, Swiss minarets, Copenhagen, Iranian nukes, etc etc etc. There is a lot on my mind and I really think I need sort of a "vacation".

On top of catching up on sleep and getting some peace of mind, I would also like to spend some quality time with my fiance.

So keeping all of this in mind, I have decided to not blog for a week or 2. Those of you who are constantly blogging about how crazy the world has become, I think, can relate to what I am going through right now.

I am scared of my insomnia and "constant thinking" getting out of control so I would request people here to pray for my health and those that don't believe in God, well, just wish me luck.

See ya guys in a couple of weeks. Happy blogging.

A Chance For Moderate Muslims To Prove Me Wrong

With the referendum to ban minarets passing with 57% of the population in favor of it, the whole of the West has gone crazy.

"What are Muslims going to think?", "How can we do this to Muslims? Muslims are not going to be happy about this." "We are Europeans and this is against European values." Blah blah blah.

What about the responsibility of Muslims as citizens of Switzerland? Why is everyone so bent on making Muslims happy? How about Muslims compromise for a change?

These Muslims say they are citizens of Switzerland and so should be given equal rights (which they are). Now, because they are citizens of Switzerland, technically, they are Europeans and as Europeans they should respect the decision of the majority of the people in that country.

This is the time for Muslims in Switzerland to prove that they are Swiss and have European values, that they have assimilated. Muslims have a chance here to prove it loud and clear that they are moderate Muslims who have come to Europe to become Europeans and not to make Europe Muslim. Muslims need to shut up and accept this democratic decision. Muslims have to prove that their loyalty is to Europe and European idea of democracy, rather than to the long dead and awaited Islamic caliphate and Shariah law.

My eyes are on Muslims. Let's see how they react to this. They can prove me wrong this time by just shutting up and accepting this decision respectfully. I think they are going to make a fuss about it. I think they will complain. I think they will whine but if they don't then I will accept that there are moderate Muslims that we can count on while we fight Islamic terrorism. Right now, I think there isn't a single Muslim that I would be able to trust.

I hope they change my opinion. I am not very confident about it though.
