Denying the obvious is not a winning strategy in the struggle against Jihad

Today conservative radio dhimmi, Hugh Hewitt, hosted a roundtable discussion on Islam's Cartoon Jihad.

Though Dennis Prager and Michael Medved were unwilling to discuss the Islamic "sacred" texts themselves, Hugh and another guest were bending over backwards to excuse the Muslim insanity and violence manifest in reaction to the cartoons. They were doing their best to try to whitewash Islam and steer the discussion away from the reason Muslims around the world are killing, destroying, and threatening to kill and destroy non-Muslims.

Hugh also wrongly asserts that the Danish cartoonists have started this "war." Allah began it fourteen hundred years ago. Here are Allah and his apostle in their own words:
"...fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful" (Qur’an 9:5).

"Fight them, and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you (to victory) over them, heal the breasts of Believers..." (Qur'an 9:14).

"Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued" (Qur'an 9:29).

"Say to the Unbelievers, if (now) they desist (from Unbelief), their past would be forgiven them; but if they persist, the punishment of those before them is already (a matter of warning for them). And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily Allah doth see all that they do" (Qur'an 8:38-8:39).

"O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that Allah is with those who fear Him" (Qur'an 9:123).

"Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not" (Qur'an 2:216).

"Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him" (Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57).
Would Hugh make the same excuses for Christians behaving in this way for blasphemy against Christ?

You cannot "win over" Islam. Its god commands his faithful to wage brutal, offensive warfare against non-Muslims. Failure to recognize this is endangers the free world.

The fault with Hugh's abortion-clinic-bombing analogy is that if a "Christian" were to do such a thing, it would be in violation of Christ's commands. When a Muslim kills a non-Muslim, it is in fulfillment of Allah's commands.

Hugh is blind to the fact that Islam is not like Judaism or Christianity. Its values are completely reversed. Its god is an enemy of YHWH and His Christ.

Hugh needs the courage to look at Islam's authoritative texts and history honestly. He will then see that those to whom he appeals as examples of moderation (whether in theory or from actual experience) are exceptions to Allah's rule, not examples of it. The "moderate" is an anomaly and a radical. He or she is the one who is perverting Islam.

The real question is not "What percentage of Islam is not radical?" but, "What will prevent Muslims from fulfilling Allah and his apostle's commands to fight against, subdue, and kill non-Muslims?"

Allah and Mohammed's commands and example (as found in Qur'an, Hadith, and Sira) make Islam radical, not non-Muslims. Future victims should stop blaming themselves!

What the Infidel does will never make any difference to faithful, Qur'anic Islam, because Allah requires violence against him.

Rather than equivocating, the West should be supporting Freedom of Speech over the tyranny of Allah. Call Allah and Mohammed on the carpet for their requiring their faithful to kill in Allah's name.

Mohammed said, "...kill the unbelievers wherever you find them" (Qur'an 9:5). Jesus said, "Love your enemies."

Hugh keeps trying to equate Christ and Allah. That is blasphemous.
