Religion of Peace Roundup - Week of Dec 31st

Clarity and Resolve - The Palestinians are killing each other.

Always on Watch - (must read) posts on the Fifth annual conference of the Palestine Solidarity Movement being held at Georgetown University.

American Crusader - Islam and free speech.

Is Islam our Future? This is quite a read, but well worth it. The answer may surprise you.

Atlas Shrugs - A suicide bomber whose intended target was a childrens Hannakuh party.

Little Green Footballs - Let the dhimmitude begin! Hamas plans on instituting the jizya tax on Christians living in Bethlehem.

* jizya (Arabic): This is the poll tribute tax that infidels must pay for being allowed to live in the Islamic state (such infidels are called dhimmis*). It is often paid in a humiliating manner, with the Jew or Christian being made to enter the tax collector's office with eyes to the ground, and then being struck in the face or on the back of the neck while paying.

Fight against those to whom the Scriptures were given as believe in neither God nor the Last Day, who do not forbid what God and His apostle have forbidden, and do not embrace the true Faith, until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued. —Qur'an 9:29

Democracy Frontline - the recent bombing in Indonesia.

Jihad in Arkansas?

Mohammed's mental health.

The Bangladesh government is helping the jihadists.

Al Queda link to French rioting.

Great post-- you've really packed a lot of information into it. (Some of which I may be "borrowing" for my site :-).

Excellent post! I especially liked the quotes from the Quran. I really think this needs to be a much more major part of all our posts. It is hard for any of the Muslims to deny the reality of the motivation of the acts of terror when the Quran shows it supports it.

Also, I really liked the definition. A small tidbit for our own education will serve us well in the debate for the hearts and minds. Ultimately, it will be the moderate Muslims who will determine the tipping point.

I think it's a good idea too, however the radicals will only say it's taken out of context.

Clarity and Resolve has a great jihad lexicon. It's a great resource and often adds the Koranic verse to supplement the definition.

I agree. They will also complain about the improper translation from Arabic.

But it is still the essence of their belief systems. The point is to plant the seed and in their private moments, especially with the injustices toward women, they will think about it whether they want to or not.

That is all we can ask for. I believe it is the moderate Muslims (the radicals are a lost cause) that will ultimately determine the tipping point in this war.

A large sequoia tree also grows from a single seed so...

If anything, confusion and doubt can be powerful forces in and of themselves.

I plan to sprinkle verses in my future posts as well as in any comments I have input in.

The issue of whether our future is Islam is something I can't encourage you enough to read. I plan on posting and commenting on some of that material later.
