Rusty Shackleford Gets Fatwa on His Head

Because Rusty denounces terrorism, those who support terrorism, and those who want to Islamify the West, a radical Muslim who writes at the blog Radical Muslim (link is slow but safe via Anonymouse) has issued a fatwa against him:

In his explanation of why we should be shut down, he makes the claim that this website is "Islamophobic" and that sites like ours 'slander Islam'. A charge which is completely without merit. Unless, of course, by "Islamophobic" the author, Jamaal, thinks that any one who criticizes terrorists, their enablers, or fascists bent on setting up states run by Islamsts such as himself are "Islamophobes". I know dozens and dozens of Muslims who faithfully practice their religion and would agree with nearly 100% of my political agenda. Are these Muslims also 'Islamophobes'?


That agenda consists of nothing more than the promotion of secular liberal values. Values such as freedom of conscience and religion. The freedom to praise or criticize Mohammed, or Buddha, or Jesus, or whoever. The freedom to join or leave any religion. The freedom to read a Koran or burn a Bible.

If that is 'hate' or some kind of 'phobia', then consider me guilty as charged. I hate the Islamist agenda of the Talibanizing of the West. I am, indeed, phobic about Salafist intentions on banning the conversion of Muslims to Hinduism. And I really do think people who support terrorist organizations, such as Hamas or The Islamic State of Iraq (al Qaeda front group) are dangerous.

The specific charge was that we were instrumental in getting the editor of al Jazeerah.info, a professor of sociology at Dalton State College, to stop his publication--an overtly pro-terror website. Alas, this charge is also true. I'm not sure exactly how that is 'Islamophobia', but for the 'radical Muslim' I'm guessing that anyone, like me, who opposes groups listed by the State Department as terrorist organizations, such as The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, is an 'Islamophobe' by definition.

I have to say, though, that I'm a bit flattered by Jamaal's death fatwa. Long time readers know, that its been a goal of mine to get myself one. Not just a death threat from a Muslim, I have loads of those, but an official fatwa. I would consider myself lucky to be included in the ranks of Salman Rushdie, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, or Wafa Sultan--all alleged "blasphemers" and critics of sharia and the traditional understanding of the sunna (example of Muhammed).

I'm also flattered that he decided to name his list of targets "fatwa worthy" in an apparent ironic homage to my own "fatwa worthy" list of links to the right [which seem to be down right now due to a problem at blogrolling]. Of course, irony means something like the use of words other than their literal intentions. So, when I say Charles Johnson's LGF, Ed Morrissey's CQ, Michelle Malkine's Hot Air, or Robert Spencer's Jihad Watch are 'fatwa worthy', I'm being ironic. When he attempts irony, it falls flat. He really means that the links, like mine, are literally 'fatwa worthy'. Nice try. Moron.

Heh.

Well, perhaps it is true that more and more people fear being blown up by a islamofascist suicide bomber when they go to a crowded shopping mall. Does that make one an "Islamophobe" or a "mortophobe?" And whose fault is it? One might suggest to Jamaal that his modus operanda is designed to create fear of Islam, no?

You accurately described Islam in one word, 'Morons'.
Another article this AM described Islam as being farther back in development than 'caveman'.

Soon the world will have them figured out and everyone will be against, not supporting/funding, them like the leadership of the current congress does.

Rusty's been workin hard for that fatwa for a couple years now. He's complained bitterly that he couldn't get one. Must go congratulate him now.

SO easy even an Islamofascist could do it!!

One thing I've noticed is that the terrorists that give us the most problem have had some exposure to the West. Its probably because internally bred extremist followers aren't of much use outside of gun fodder and suicide bombers. One explanation for the heavy recruiting in Western nations. Al Queda would be no threat without them. Kind of ironic.

Since Rusty now has a Fatwa and I don't could I be considered to live a Fatwa neutral lifestyle?

Here you go.

Open Season
Music: Ward
Lyrics: Aborn, Nelson
String Arrangement: Eric Frampton

I speak peace when peace is spoken, But I speak war when your hate is provoking, The season is open 24-7-365, Man up yo time to ride, No need to hide behind slogans of deceit, Claiming that you're a religion of peace, We just don't believe you, We can clearly see through, The madness that you're feeding your people, Jihad the cry of your unholy war, Using the willing, the weak and poor, From birth drowning in propaganda, rhetoric and slander, All we can say is damn ya

My forefathers fought and died for this here
I'm stronger than your war of fear
Are we clear?
If you step in my hood
It's understood
It's open season

I don't need a faith that's blind, Where death and hate bring me peace of mind, With views that are stuck deep in the seventh century, So much sand in your eyes to blind to see, The venom that you leaders preach, Is the path to your own destruction, Your own demise, You might say that I don't understand but your disgust for me is what I realize, Surprise!
Your homicidal ways has got the whole world watching, Whole world scoping, So if you bring it to my home base, Best believe it, The season's open

I see you, Hell yeah I see you, Motherfucker naw, I don't wanna be you, If you come to my place, I'll drop more than just some bass, Yo you'll get a taste of a, Sick motherfucker from the Dirty, I ain't worrying not a fucking bit, I'm telescoping like Hubble, Yo you in trouble, Yo on the double, I'm wild with mine, Bring that style with mine, Fuck with my family I'll end your life, Just the way it is, Just the way it be, Do you understand? No matter if you're woman or man, or child, My profile is crazy, That shit you do doesn't amaze me, I'm ready to blaze thee

I don't give a damn what god you claim, I've seen the innocent that you've slain, On my streets you're just fair game, Like a pig walk to your slaughter, The heat here is so much hotter, And my views won't teeter totter or fluctuate, Step to me you just met your fate, And I'll annihilate, With the skill of a Shogun assassin, Slicing and dicing precise with a passion, In any shape form or fashion, Bring it to my home, Welcome to the danger zone, Cause your attitude's the reason, The triggers keep squeezing, The hunt is on and it's open season

It's Open Season

Why do you guys just let this asshole Scrapiron spout bullshit without saying a thing? "You summed up Islam in one word: Morons." Alright so I guess if that's your standard, I sum up all Christians with those wackos from the Westboro Baptist church. If you don't know, they're those nuts who carry signs at soldiers' funerals that say "Thank God for IEDs"

Ryan,
Go apply the same logic over at Kos or DU.
And if that was your view of Christians, may I suggest you tune into the View. You'll be nodding your head in time to the flapping of Rosie's chin.

Ryan:

What the hell does that fat nutcase Rosie have to do with anything? All I'm saying is that the average muslim is just like the average Christian. Read: Not a wacked out insane extremist. I think the analogy I made is a fair one based on what that numbskull Scrapiron shat from his mouth. As for the Daily Kos and their ilk, I've been there and done that. I was directed to this blog by someone who said it was a little right-leaning, but at least you could carry on a serious political discussion/debate with an intelligent person, but that's not what I'm seeing so far.
