parable of sheep and shepherds goes very well with moderate Muslims.
However, a contemporary illustration will give details of their
characteristics. In developed countries, shoppers use shopping carts (a
device approximately three feet high with four small wheels) for their
shopping. These carts are always left behind in the parking lot and seldom
returned to the designated place. Employees collect these carts and bring
them back inside of the store. Itís a long line of carts and quite
impossible for a person to push them. They use a small-motorized vehicle
at the end of the carts. The employee steers the front cart and uses a
remote controller to run the motor at the back.
scenario, the majority of Muslims (including moderates) are the lifeless
carts, Islam is the motorized vehicle and Imam or Islamic scholars (conman
Zakir Naik, Harun Yahia et al.) represent the employee of the store. They
are not able to make the judgment call, nor do they have the ability to
think. Think about all those protests in
countries. A very few have access to the Internet and Danish newspapers,
along with a bottle of a milk are not delivered in the morning. So, itís
highly unlikely that any of them have seen those cartoons, yet they have
declared Jihad against
about our Muslim intellectuals? They should understand the significance of
freedom but they, too, are acting weird as if a raccoon is trapped in
their underpants. Obviously, they are not honest and their talk about
reforming Islam is only a smokescreen. They belong to ĎUmmahí, the
universal Islamic association whose ultimate goal is: ĎIslam will rule
Muslim countries have boycotted Danish products. How about the Muslims of
? Are they boycotting
and leaving the country en masse?
news, Palestinians have surrounded the EU office. Itís the same European
Union who feeds Palestinians with chunks of money every year. Will these
people ever wake up and see the danger of Islam?
many flaws, we can learn one valuable lesson from Islam. Hold on; donít
fall off of your chair!
cause of Islam is not just; more accurately, itís evil but all Muslims
are united when Islam is under attack despite their own conflicts and
habitual killing of each other. Sunnis are killing Shiites, Shiites are
chasing Ahmediyas, Ahmediyas are poking Bahais, yet they all scream when
Islam is scrutinized. Yes, I am talking about unity. Itís sad that
people of the free world cannot get together when their freedom is at
few newspapers in the
, such as New
York Sun and Philadelphia Inquirer have supported the courageous effort of
the Danish newspaper and put a link to those cartoons but the rest of the
media went numb and were afraid to show their team spirit. One editor of a
French paper was fired for publishing those cartoons. Is that how they
will safeguard their freedom of expression?
asked about the unwarranted silence, Leonard Downie, Jr., the executive
editor of The Washington Post
reasoned, "They wouldn't meet our standards for what we publish in
the paper." Should I be ashamed or proud of their standard? They did
not mind publishing Abu-Gharib pictures, which was obscene compared
to these cartoons.
