Ahhh, but therein lies the rub. The “mild” Muslim will always be at risk of being hauled before the court of the sharia minded followers of 7th century Islam, because like it or not, the hardliners’ position on what Islam stands for is on solid ground.
Believing that it’s otherwise, is just wishful thinking and the fooling of oneself to the hard cold facts and reality of it all. While many Islamic countries “choose not” to adhere to all of horrorific guidelines Islamic teaching allows for, their choice however, not to, doesn’t nullify the hardliners’ positions whatsoever.
The Tundra Tabloids has always been amazed by the verbal gymnastics coming from elected leaders where Islam is concerned, you know the drill, the refusal to link Islam to any acts of terrorism. Here’s the Att-Gen of the United States doing just that:
For people to stand in judgement of the Saudis, the guardians of Islamic holy sites and of Islam in general, that they do not in fact understand their own holy texts, is truly amazing. It’s like saying that the Vatican doesn’t understand the New Testament and the life of Christ. Get real. KGS
Veiled or not – a threat is a threat and incitement is incitement:New Tory chairman Sayeeda Warsi has been slammed by Islamic fundamentalists who warned she could be in physical danger if she visits Muslim communities.The 39-year-old baroness is the first female Muslim to be given a full Cabinet position. But controversial preacher Anjem Choudary accused her of “betraying” her religion.He told the Daily Star Sunday: “Sayeeda Warsi is not a Muslim in my eyes.“She may look like a Muslim and have a Muslim-sounding name but she does not represent Islam or anyone in this country who is a Muslim. “She is a ‘coconut’, brown on the outside but white on the inside.“In fact, she is whiter than most of the other white people in government. “How can she be a Muslim and support the military involvement of the British Army in Islamic countries?“She is somebody who pretends to be a practising Muslim but, from her views and statements, she is clearly against Sharia. “She is a disgrace and many true Muslims are angry that she claims to stand for Islam despite betraying Allah.”Choudary – whose group Islam4UK was banned by the last government – predicted that Baroness Warsi would become the focus of hate.He said: “She will be attacked by eggs every time she goes near a Muslim community.“Some more extreme protesters may take the attacks further. There is no doubt she is in danger.”[from your Jihadi thugs, apparently – Ed.]
