Walid Shoebat

I liked his comment in an interview about the film, Islam: What the West Needs to Know. By the way, has anyone discovered whether he is the real thing or not? He sure is accurate in his portrayal of Islamic principles. Anyway, here is his comment:
At another speech, one Rabbi critiqued the New Testament as “riddled with violence,” I had no problem with his right to state this, yet when I confronted him I asked “Why do you feel free to critique the New Testament, but afraid of critiquing Islam’s well documented violence?” to which he could not reply.

It didn’t matter that I stated in my speech that a Jew had the right to critique Christianity, a Christian had the right to critique Mormonism and Islam, and a Muslim had a right to critique the Bible and Christianity, I was still accused of racism and bigotry against Islam. One can say almost anything against any other religion but Islam. Why?

Our basic religious freedom is at stake. We might be going on the same road as I witnessed in England while doing interviews in the media. In one Christian TV show, the interviewer stated that he cannot critique Islam in fear of closure. Only the interviewee can do so. He feared a shut down of his Christian station.

The other dangerous trend is that all fundamentalists are being lumped as fanatics. At the BBC in England during one interview the interviewer stated to me that “the problem with today’s world is fundamentalism” to which I responded “Christian fundamentalists give the world a headache, I confess, but Muslim fundamentalists will whack your head right off your shoulders, sir” I was quickly thanked and escorted out of the BBC.

Citizen Warrior,

What is really disturbing about this is that article could have been entitle, "Walid Shoebat's Evidence That The Fanatics Are Winning" and it would make perfect sense.

In many ways, they are winning at the moment, Damien. But not for long.

Natasha, that was a great contribution. For those of you who haven't followed the link, it is a music video about Mona Mahmudnizhad.

Mona was a Persian Bahá'í who, together with nine other Bahá'í women, was sentenced to death and hanged in Shiraz (Iran) because of her membership to the Bahá'í Faith. Mona Mahmudnizhad was arrested and charged for teaching Bahá'í school classes to children.

The Iranian authorities tried to make Mona, and the other arrested Bahá'í women, recant their religious beliefs through torture. However, when the women did not recant they were sentenced to death.

At the time of their sentencing, the President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, made a plea for clemency, but the women were hanged on June 18, 1983.

Thank you, I liked the music video you choose so much that I made a direct Link to it so that more people will see it. Its horrible to have to think about how this type of religious persecution continues. Even in our modern enlightened age, there are still places in the world where such inhuman intolerance thrives. Its sad how that poor woman had to die, just for teaching children her beliefs.

Citizen Warrior,

I hope we start winning on those fronts soon. I don't want even one free society to fall to the Islamic fascists!

Let's make sure we win, Damien.
