The Muslim Vacuum
By Barbara J. Stock
receive the most amazing e-mail messages from all over the world.
Some of these messages are angry, most are supportive, and some are
from Muslims who feel they are on a mission from Allah to show me the
error of my ways. Many from
other countries show a woeful lack of knowledge of Americans and what is
really happening in the world. One
very nice Muslim man said, “Look at me, I am peaceful.”
Well, that’s one.
and over again, these e-mailers remind me that Islam is a religion of
peace. The well-documented
genocide at the hands of the Islamic government in Sudan is just simply
not true, most Muslim writers say. The
post-script is usually something like, “but look what the Christians are
doing in Sudan!” Trying to
survive comes to mind. So
does starving to death at the hands of yet another failed Islamic
government. Many Muslims that
write to me have no knowledge of any of the mass death in Sudan and if
they do know about it, they have been told it is the Christians who are
committing the murders.
nice man insisted there are no angry words in the Quran.
When I sent him hundreds of lines such as, “Have no unbelieving
friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them,” there was just
silence. He just simply
ignored it and tried a different route.
Those doing the killing aren’t real Muslims, he reassured me.
I asked him who all these “fake” Muslims were that were killing in the
name of Allah he just said it was for Allah to judge.
I’m sure Allah will judge them but in the meantime we Americans
must defend ourselves and stop all terrorists, real or fake, before they
a very polite and seemingly knowledgeable Muslim man told me that we
Americans are fighting the wrong enemy.
Everyone but we Americans know that it was the Jews that attacked
America on 9/11. There were
no Muslims on those planes. Muslims
just don’t do such things. It
was a Zionist conspiracy that blamed peaceful Muslims for the attack on
America and the attack was planned and carried out by Jewish plotters to
have the most powerful country in the world destroy Islam for Israel.
I pointed out that Osama Bin Laden had admitted to the attack and clearly
stated he planned more destructive attacks on America, the response
was mind-boggling. It seems
there are Muslims out there in the world who believe that bin Laden is
fictional. That’s right:
Bin Laden doesn’t exist. He
is just part of the elaborate Jewish plot.
This explains why we have not caught him.
course, this same man said Christians are not harassed in Saudi Arabia,
the United States created the Taliban, and it is Muslims that are
tormented around the world, sighting the fact that France will not allow
Muslim girls to keep their heads covered in school.
The fact that the Saudi “religious police” let Muslim girls
burn to death behind a locked gate because their heads were not covered
was not addressed. This was
simply a lie on my part he argued, because “Muslims don’t do such
things.” But if this is
true, there sure are a lot of “fake” Muslims out there in high and
the tooth fairy and the Easter Bunny never came up.
If they had, I have no doubt this man would have told me they are
both Jewish plots to corrupt the minds of American children.
is a saying: “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
When the religious leaders have total control over every element of
a person’s life, that power corrupts those leaders, absolutely.
This is why in America, our founding fathers split up the power
between three equal but separate branches of government.
They also said, without hesitation, that while we are founded on a
Judeo-Christian philosophy, there shall never be a State-run or
-controlled religion inflicted on the people.
in Europe and the Middle East seem to feel President Bush will be--or
already is--a “dictator.” They
compare him to Hitler. This
shows how ignorant they are of how our system works.
An American dictator, with total control over the country and its
people, simply isn’t possible. Our
military would not follow his commands.
Every man and woman in any branch of the service takes an oath.
That oath is to protect and defend the Constitution
from all enemies, foreign and domestic, not the president.
A rogue president with visions of dictatorship would become a
domestic enemy. I should also
add that any American Muslims who decide they should be in charge would
meet the same fate. As a
footnote--or perhaps a warning--we Americans are heavily armed and our
founders, in their infinite wisdom, planned that as well.
is becoming more obvious every day that even educated Muslims living in
countries that are totally under Muslim rule or where Muslims are not
allowed to integrate themselves with the general population, live in a
vacuum. The only information
allowed into that vacuum is what the Islamic leaders want them to hear.
What they hear is that the West is evil incarnate and is on a
mission to destroy all of Islam. If
these unfortunates hear of a bombing in Iraq that has taken the lives of
25 Iraqi Muslims, they are told it was done by the Jews to make Muslims
look bad. Beheadings?
Lies, all of them are lies and the videos were put out by Jewish
Hollywood. Those that wrote
to me absolutely believe this.
everything these people hear and see has been twisted in such a fashion
that it is no wonder they hate the West and obsess over the Jews.
What seems to be impossible to make these completely miss-informed
Muslims understand is that they are being used and abused by those whose
only desire is absolute power.
For many, they are subjected to hours of hate-filled, incoherent
preaching every Friday at their Mosque.
Muslims have been taught from birth to believe every word from their
Imam’s mouth as if was coming from the very mouth of Allah.
If they are told that the Jew is evil, they believe it.
If they are told Americans are taking over the entire Middle East
and plan to kill all Muslims, they will believe it.
Why else would a mother kiss her beloved son goodbye and then
praise him as a martyr when he blows himself up?
The more “infidels” he kills the higher the family’s stature
within the community. This is insanity!
Americans we must defend ourselves against those preaching this insanity.
Muslims who know the truth need to protect their own from the same
insanity or more Muslim children will be sent out to die for nothing.
These children aren’t dying for Islam; they are dying for leaders
obsessed with having that absolute power while they hide in their Mosques
preaching lies and hate.
