"Now, we are really all Israelis"

Phyllis Chesler has a piece up that resonates:

I did not think that the pro-Muslim/pro-Islamist and anti-Western propaganda could get any worse--and yet it just has.

TIME magazine has an August 30 cover story titled "Is America Islamophobic?" Within, the article is titled: "Islam in America: It's part of the fabric of life, but protests reveal a growing hostility to the religion of Muslims."

...

After years of denial, indifference, and anti-racist, multi-culturally relativist political correctness, Europeans and Americans are only now just waking up to what Israel has been living with for 63 years. Too little, too late, they are now trying to halt some of the Islamist practices which are crimes and are best described as Islamic gender and religious Apartheid.

When westerners protest Islamic Apartheid, they are demonized as "Islamophobes" and "racists." This means that any resistance to aggressive Islamification is shamed and slandered. If that doesn't work, physical intimidation and lawsuits ("lawfare") follow.

Incredibly, the Western media and political establishment has taken the Islamist side. They confuse "Islamism" or "radical Islam" with the majority of silent Muslims who are too afraid to take on the Islamists, (or who agree with them), and with the small but precious number of Muslim and ex-Muslim dissidents, feminists, secularists, and moderates who do stand up to the Islamists but who are not consulted by western leaders or quoted in the Western media.

TIME magazine does not quote Ibn Warraq, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Seyran Ates, Zeyno Baran, M. Zuhdi Jasser, Magdi Allam, Bassam Tibi, Khaled Abu Toameh, who are Muslims and ex-Muslims who have written major works against Islamism, and who have argued for human rights within Islam, including the right to leave Islam without risking death.

TIME magazine's approach has also been adopted by the mainstream media in how they cover the controversy over the controversial mosque near Ground Zero. Those who oppose it are being called "bigots," "racists," and madmen, at least in the mainstream media. Those who defend it are seen as enlightened, tolerant "victims" whose religious freedom has been impinged. Just yesterday, Daisy Khan, Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf's wife, claimed that the attacks have gone far beyond "Islamophobia" and are now in the realm of "discrimination against Jews."

Next thing I expect to hear is that the "Zionists" are behind the discrimination against the "Jewish" Muslims.

Folks: Welcome to the Middle East in New York City. Now, we are really all Israelis.

Every word of Ms. Chesler's post should be read by all.  Do you part and pass it on.

What I can not really get my mind around is why is mayor Bloomberg so avidly behind this mosque? Being Jewish, he would not even be invited into the building for the opening ceremony. He would be considered a desecration to the "holy site" and if he did enter, the building would have to be cleansed.

DaveD:

Terrorist organizations aside, when one looks at countries where Islam is the predominant religion is there any doubt that repressive government is the norm? I am sure there are those who would argue but at the present time if you are a supporter of Islam you are a supporter of these repressive regimes because Islamic doctrine is a cornerstone of the way of governing. So the Western press paints a sympathetic picture of a religion/state which would limit its freedom. Western feminists choose to ignore the misogyny inherent in doctrinal Islam. The apologists will desire to focus on past atrocities performed in the name of Christendom or Judaism. But since I am selfish and living today I see Islam as a haven for terrorism and subjugation in the contemporary world. Part of the fabric of life? Not in my mind. The United States would be a much different place if the majority of the population practiced Islam.

I know Jews (cuz I is one), and Bloomberg ain't no Jew. He's an asshole that would sell his soul to be spared from the Islamic sword.

There is a video that already shows this. See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qlgyw01ZQew

Mo:

I'm also Jewish, grandson of Jews murdered in Auschwitz, and the son of a survivor. It's true that Bloomberg is nominally Jewish, but his REAL religion is a mix of liberalism/fascism (note his attacks on salt and trans-fats, while murderous Muslims get a pass!) and Bloombergism, a religion of narcissism and arrogance, where the one adherent thinks himself a demi-god because he was smart enough to make some big bucks.

However, he is as stupid as the German Jews who in the 30's, refused to believe that Hitler would carry out his plan, even as one law was passed after another against us. He is the same league as those Jews who helped the Nazis, thinking it would save their own skin/ it did not, of course.

It's a very long discussion, though, why Jews are suicidally stupid. We see the same in Israel, with the Left there willing to let the Palestinians destroy the Jews just to make things "fair".

I've come to think that those who say liberalism is a mental disorder are correct. And, Jews have that illness.

Well, some Jews. My dad long ago strayed away from the liberalism and Democratic Party that most Jews espoused and continue to do so. And I go to a synagogue where most of the adherents are conservative Republicans. I feel at home there.

Mayor Bloomberg? I want nothing to do with him. For such an accomplished and otherwise intelligent man, he's a complete FOOL. Or, he's been bought off, which would be even worse. But I more seriously think he's just a complete PUTZ.

Olsoljer:

Scrapiron, the $1 was wasted if you purchased it to gain any intellectual information. The $1 was a good investment for the paper content if it was used for the bottom of your bird cage.
