Speaking out against Radical Islam
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, October 04, 2006

I've complained in the past about moderate Muslims mostly remaining silent about the radicals who are hijacking their religion. So in the interest of fairness I present an example of just such condemnation:
"Jihad is here. We must wage jihad against the enemies of Allah here. The enemies of Allah are in our midst. They claim to be Muslims, although they are as far as can be from Islam. They call themselves 'reformists' or 'preachers,' and say that we support the West. They are hostile to us on these grounds. Yet at the same time, the Westerners and others claim that we are the birthplace of these people. Where are we? Why don't we tell these people who we are? Why don't we argue with them, discuss things with them? Why don't we respond to everything they say? Why don't we restrict the ignorant among us, or even those who think they are Islamic scholars?"

[...]

"The enemies of the Muslims have used Muslims and Arabs to corrupt Islam and the Arabs. I don't think any of you present denies this fact."

[...]

"Is it not an insult to Islam in general that someone so plain and worthless like Osama bin Laden is considered important? Does anyone accept this? Not only is he worthless, but he is an agent. He was an agent of foreign intelligence agencies, and he still is - him and those who support him. Who established Al-Qaeda?"

[...]

"Al-Qaeda has taken advantage of bin Laden's money, and they put him in the forefront, because he is affiliated with the Saudi kingdom. Even though he is from another country, he received Saudi citizenship. Who is Al-Zawahiri? We must ask ourselves, Who is Abdallah 'Azzam, the spiritual father of these people?"
The speaker?

Saudi Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abd Al-'Aziz.

May the trend continue and grow.

Meanwhile in the west:
Spanish villages are toning down traditional fiestas in which revelers blow up dummies representing the Prophet Mohammed for fear of offending Muslims, the newspaper El Pais reported on Monday.

One eastern Spanish village, Bocairent, decided to abandon the custom of packing the head of a dummy representing Mohammed with fireworks after seeing the angry response by Muslims to a Danish newspaper's publication last year of cartoons of him.

[...]

Villages all over Spain hold annual festivals to commemorate the "Reconquista," the reconquest of Spain by Christians from the Moors, which was completed in 1492 after more than 700 years of Muslim rule in much of the country.
Apparently they settled for throwing the dummy representing Mohammed off the castle wall instead.

The last paragraph at the link appears to send a different message to me:
"My brothers, the danger is even greater. Even those people have become tools in the hands of the enemies. Unless we face reality with truth, courage, and evidence, and if we do not stop all the transgressors who are trying to distort Islam with their claims of reform and their corrupt progress - this will be dangerous. These people have been tempted by the West, and have been employed in its service. We are familiar with their relations with foreign elements. We are fighting them and will continue to fight them, and we will cut off their tongues."
Bolding added by me.

OBL is an avowed enemy of the Saudi dynasty, so I’m not really surprised at their mouthpiece badmouthing him. This isn’t ’moderate Muslims’ denouncing fanatics, it’s one batch of zealots dissing a rival batch.

Hey, everyone knows that Karl Rove pulls bin Laden’s puppet strings. Laden wasn’t just tempted by the West, he’s a tool of the Bush administration.

Those damm Jews/Americans, absolutely clear that it couldn’t possibly be the Arabs corrupting Islam.

Don, lol!

Achillea: As a rule, I tend to agree, but let’s not rule out the importance of Saudi in the Arab world. Should the Saudis decide to get serious about running down OBL and the al Qaeda types, AQ’s best hope would be to surrender to us.

McQ: Thank you for posting this. I think it’s important for people to realize that Islam is not a monolith anymore than Christianity or Judaism. There are moderate Muslims speaking out against terrorism and OBL every day.
