The Tylenol in Your Ass Theory of Moderate Islam – Eric Allen Bell

Eric Allen Bell

Eric Allen Bell is a writer, filmmaker and Media Consultant, presently living in New York, NY. While making a documentary about the construction of a 53,000 square foot mega mosque in Murfreesboro, TN he attempted to expose “Islamophobia”. Once he stated that Islam was the biggest threat to human rights in the world today, he was banned from the writing Daily Kos and MichaelMoore.com, after LoonWatch.com created a petition to silence him. His article, “The High Price of Telling the Truth About Islam” has been widely circulated and has caused several Liberals to rethink how they look at the Religion of Peace.

  2. I am responding to urge you to consider some additional facts relevant to your apparent claim that Islam is the enemy; I urge you to consider the broadest possible reading of verified facts in your thinking about the horrible threat we confront.

    First, I hope we can agree that it is not true that Islam is the unique source of contemporary terrorism that claims religion as a motivation. For example, Buddhist monks are leading marauding bands of murderers targeting Muslims in Myan Mar.

    Orthodox Christian Serbs engaged in ethnic cleansing and genocide across the former Yugoslavia, targeting mostly Muslims but also some Roman Catholic Croats. Christians killed Christians for generations and until quite recently in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

    I hope we can agree that selective quoting of scripture from many religions can be used to claim that followers are exhorted to violence; see this link for examples.

    I hope we can also agree that it is also possible to quote selectively from the Quran to suggest that Islam is a religion of love.

    I work across Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia on a regular basis; I feel I am very motivated to figure out an effective response to ISIS terrorism. In that spirit, I urge you to consider that blaming this terror on Islam or all Muslims is not an effective response to the threat we face. Effective response to any terror group must begin by understanding their goals, which always include political goals and sometimes include religious goals. The goal of ISIS is separation between Muslims and the rest of the world. The religious ideology that justifies that goal arises from a small cult that was founded about the same time as the Amish and share their rejection of modernism. This cult no more broadly represents Islam than the Amish represent Christianity. By accident of British map drawing as the empire disintegrated, this cult came to control vast petroleum reserves. They have used this wealth to promote a virulent strain of Islam that advocates violence to achieve this separation:

    This advocacy of violence is no more the only logical consequence of the writings of the Quran than shunning technology by the Amish is the only logical consequence of the writings in the bible. Calling it Islamic is overly broad and obfuscates or even ignores the reality of what we face, I do not object to the label Islamic because I have some Kumbaya vision of inclusiveness about Muslims. I object to it based on facts, and I have presented several links to support my position.

    More practically, consider what Wikileaks revealed about how members of our government discuss the funding of terror in classified documents:

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2010/dec/05/wikileaks-cables-saudi-terrorist-funding

    It follows from this that asking why our last two presidents or anyone else seem reluctant to say Islamic terror. We should be asking why politicians are not saying publicly what SOS Clinton apparently said privately. In other words, why aren’t our leaders talking Wahhabist terror. I have a guess about the answer: profits from the sales of oil and arms. Although the editorial from which I pull this quote was written about the UK and not the US, I believe these words apply equally well to our leaders: “Our allies are up to their necks in complicity with terrorism, but as long as there is money to be made and weapons to sell, our rulers’ lips will remain stubbornly sealed.”

  3. Keithellerby –

    ISIS kills innocent people in the name of an ideology which seeks to force the entire world to submit to it. The meaning of the word “Islam” is submission and ISIS prefers to be called “The Islamic State”. What part of that do you empathize with please?

  4. Ali Sina says:

    Keithellerby,

    In what ways you empathize with ISIS? Would you also have empathize with Nazis?

  5. keithellerby says:

    Hi Alex, unfortunately the link you have given does not bring up the page. You can get to tpnn home page and it does look like a good site. I don’t know if you have another link to the article.

  6. keithellerby says:

    I can empathise with ISIS but I am still going to do everything I can to prevent them taking control of my country and imposing their vile Sharia law on me and my family. That includes not converting to Islam and taking actions to prevent them coming to power “legally”.
