Thus Judgement day will not come till
Muslims fight the Jews and kill them. If this is all foretold by their Prophet,
then it becomes their duty to fight the Jews and not compromise with them. This
makes it very difficult for the Israelis to make peace with the Palestinians -
not when their Holy Prophet foretold the destruction of the Jews in the last
It shows to the world the blind hate in
the hearts of the Palestinian people. The Palestinians prefer to vote for a
party that promises war with
than for a party, albeit corrupt, that promises to negotiate peace with
. It means that their party of choice is a party that carries out suicide
bombings against innocent civilians. Civilized people are going to wonder what
sort of people are the Palestinians and Muslims in general.
What this means is that Bush's
well-intentioned efforts to spread democracy in the Islamic heartlands are going
to sink after crashing on the hard rock of Islam. Elections in
brought a strong showing by the Muslim Brotherhood. Elections in
brought to power Islamist parties friendly to
. Each election brought to power
's enemies. But you may say, "So What? Didn't elections in say
bring forth a government that opposes
's policies? Why should
expect elections to result in friendly governments?"
That is not the point. Elections
elsewhere may bring forth governments that do not agree with
. These governments can come and go. (With the Islamists, it will be the case of
"one man, one vote, one time only.")
can live with democracies that have shared values of human rights, separation
of religion and state, freedom of speech and religion. No Islamic state such as
the one that HAMAS wants to implement has these values. To make things worse,
the Islamists also seek to bring, first Muslim states and eventually the whole
world to be under Islamic Law. Islamism is actually religious fascism, very much
similar to Hitler's Nazi ideology. Just substitute Aryan
master race with the Muslim Ummah and you will get the same supremacist ideology.
Thus Islamists winning the elections is like Hitler winning the elections.
You can get a taste of this attitude of
Islamic supremacy by comparing the Islamic Human rights declaration with the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
Under the Cairo Declaration of Human
Rights, the Muslim Ummah is proclaimed to be the "best nation",
destined to "guide" the rest of humanity.
Unlike the UDHR, there is no implication that all religious groups are to be
treated equally. If Muslims are supposed to "guide", then it follows
that the rest of us are supposed to follow. What if the rest of us do not want
to follow, in accordance to Islam's script?
You can also see their strong belief of
eventual Muslim world domination in this recent speech by HAMAS leader, Khaled
nation will sit on the throne of the world. This is not a figment of the
imagination, but a fact. Tomorrow we will lead the world, Allah willing.
Apologize today, before remorse will do you no good. Our nation is moving
forwards, and it is in your interest to respect a victorious nation."
The two recent events (the cartoons and
the HAMAS victory) may be dismaying but there actually are two silver linings.
Firstly, with HAMAS in the government, any attack by HAMAS becomes an act of war
and not just an act of terrorism. The Israelis can retaliate more forcefully
than before because public opinion in Europe and
will be more on their side. HAMAS cannot change and make peace with
. The Palestinian Authority will lose its funding from the Europeans and the
Americans. It will get money from the Iranians which will put a further strain
on the Iranian economy.
Secondly, the politically correct left
and the Europeans cannot pretend any longer that Islam is basically peaceful
's problems with the Arab world are due to its close ties with
. They can now see that Islam's values are totally opposed to western values.
Before these two incidents, there was a move in
towards censoring criticism of religion. Partly because of the cartoon fracas,
the British Parliament has largely amended the Religious Hatred Law which in its
original form would have made it a crime to criticise Islam. The mood in
has changed. The naive multi-culturalists will soon be wondering what they have
done to allow into
millions of Muslims who refuse to adapt and integrate. If people now begin to
ask questions about the true nature of Islam, much good will come out of this.
The tide of public opinion may be finally turning.
