European Left - La Trahison des clercs

Reader comment on item: Europeans Fleeing Eurabia

Submitted by Vijay (United Kingdom), Jul 12, 2006 at 13:25

The libraries are full of books which can throw light on the militancy and violence into which Islam - more than any other religion - easily descends. Which throw light - as stated by Muslims themselves- the meaning of jihad, kuffar, dhimmi, obligations of Muslims to wage jihad, supremacist fantasies which islam engenders in it's followers and the the absolute ego-centrism, self-centredness, cynicism and exploitativeness with which Muslims deal with the non-Muslims. This attitude is there for all to see - 911, 7/7, latest bomb outrages in India, bomb outrages in Spain, Beslan,....... the list is despressingly long. The social ideal of Islam is the 7th century tribal Arabic society.

In spite of blindingly clear happeneings, the Left mollycoddles islam and Islamic terrorosts as if they deserve some special consideration. The irony is in many Msulim majority countries the Left is violently suppressed more thorougly than a Pinochet or a Franco can.

These leftists are the spriritual heirs of the earlier generation of European leftists from 1920s-1950s, who went on praising Stalin skyhigh even as he was butchering people in millions. There is something seriously wrong with the European left tradition if it can be a fervent devotee of Stalinist brutality few decades back and the Islamic medievalism of our own day.
