In other religions it’s doing good in the face of evil.
Zip over at Weasel Zippers nails it shut:
Funny, I’ve never heard a homily at mass where the priest extolled the virtues of smashing skulls and chopping off arms even though the left claims Christianity is just as violent as Islam.
Saudi Arabia, a place where one can still visit the 7th century, and not be in a museum.
MEMRI: Following are excerpts from a public address delivered by Saudi cleric Muhammad Al-Arifi, which aired on Al-Nas TV on February 21, 2012:
Muhammad Al-Arifi: There is no doubt that one’s devotion to Jihad for the sake of Allah and one’s will to shed blood, smash skulls, and chop off body parts for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion constitute an honor for the believer. Just having this notion in your heart is a mark of honor, even if you do not actually wage Jihad.
The infidel countries — the US and its allies — would not have dared to fight the Muslims, to rape their wives, and to turn them into widows. . . They only dared to engage in the daily corrupting of and fighting against Islam and the Muslims when they saw that the Muslims did not even consider fighting and conquering the [infidel] countries.
If the Muslims implemented the words of Allah: “Fight the infidels near you, and let them find harshness in you,” and other Koranic verses, like the Verse of the Sword, which deal with fighting the infidels and conquering their countries, stating that they should join Islam, pay the jizya poll tax, or be fought. . . Had the Muslims implemented this, we would not be in our current state of humiliation.
