Two from American Thinker on Islam

Two articles today at the American Thinker discuss the dangers Islam poses to our way of life. The first is an article by Janet Levy entitled The Anti-Woman, Anti-Gay Elephant in the Room It is an interesting, no not merely interesting but alarming phenomenon that the Left has become so cozy with Islam, while embracing abortionists and so-called gay rights activists. Janet Levy writes:
The ardent protests against Republicans and the concomitant apocryphal charges that they are anti-woman and anti-gay are par for the course. In actuality, Republicans are merely advocating for the sanctity of life and traditional marriage and do not demonstrate hatred against any group. However, to hold an opinion contrary to the leftist dogma of the day is obviously enough to spur public vilification and rampant allegations of malfeasance.

The anti-woman, anti-gay allegations Democrats use to characterize Republicans are all the more astonishing in light of the tolerance and accommodations that are conferred on Islam. While Islam is given a pass on these issues, Democrats freely malign Republicans who speak out about repressive Islamic doctrine or sharia, an ideology that is truly anti-woman and anti-gay.
One's first thought is that they apparently don't realize that if Islam gains the upper hand, the godless Left will be killed before either Jews or Christians. But then I realize that the Left is only cynically embracing the Abortion industry and the gays for their votes. They don't believe in these things, and are as likely to crack down on them as the Muslims are. Just look at Obama's flip-flop on gay marriage for a good example of what I am talking about here. If he can zig one way for votes, I imagine he can zag the other if it became expedient to do so. Levy concludes:
Clearly, the peril with Islam goes far beyond a choice on abortion and the recognition of homosexual marriage. The unlikely alliance the left has cultivated with Islam, not the left's differences with the Republican Party, is the farthest departure from their espoused pro-women, pro-homosexual platform. As such, it represents a danger to all Americans.
The second article is entitled Muslim Reformer In Denial by Andrew G. Bostom. Bostom finds shocking Muslim "reformer" Dr. Mohammed Zudhi Jasser's view that Hamas's annihilationist stance against Israel was:
...a tool for Hamas [and Hamas alone] to create a faith-based conflict...Us versus. them...Collectivist thinking which exploits human rights to oppress its own [ i.e., Palestinian Arab Muslim] people.
What this ignores is that the majority of Palestinians agree with the statement, and that the Koran sanctions it. Indeed the Koran makes it a duty of Muslims to commit genocide against the Jews wherever they find them. I recommend both articles to you if you want to understand the danger the United States is in from Islam. The forces are lining up against us, and we must be prepared to maintain our way of life.
