poison mixed in honey

Reader comment on item: On Islam and Islamism

Respected Dr. Pipes

Political expediency does necessitate postulating a so-called moderate or liberal islam.

But how long can an honest human being practise a "necesary" hypocrisy? How long can he live with it? Does truth not brim over the lips sooner or later?

Muslim liberals have neither the will nor the ability nor the possibilty of creating a "better" islam or of protecting the non-muslims against the islamo-fascist onslaught. Muslim liberals know it themselves. They are too cowardly and dishonest to confess it. They are through and through opportunists - running with the hare and hunting with the hounds, as they say. No muslim liberal abjures of the gains made by islamic aggressors, expansionists, imperialists - and fascists and deceitful missionaries.

Poison mixed in honey (no matter how little the poison, so long it is very powerful) - how long can you label it honey and place it on the dining table? So it is with islam.

Wishful optimistic thinking (about islam and its agents and quislings) was what M K Gandhi practised and ruined India by coddling the muslims. Even Maulana Abul Kalam Azad (a muslim born in Makkah), who was the first education minister in post-british India (let's not call it independent India), was disgusted with the kuran and warned MKG about his foolish wishful appeasement of muslims.

Learning from history - anyone?

Crypto-ex-muslims (crypto-apostates from islam) decry our tendency to postulate a liberal "better" islam. They know under their own scorched skin that such a variant does not and cannot exist.

Many an islamo-fascist is born and brought up in a muslim liberal family. Muslim liberals are an excellent hideout and camouflage for islamo-fascists when they need one.
