Twitter is very revealing. It reveals how interconnected the so-called peaceful Muslims and the terrorist wing of the ummah actually are. In fact, it’s hard to tell the difference between them at times. There is a direct line from them to leftist blogs and apologists for Islam as well. Here are two, first from Jihad Watch – “Normal” Muslim compares New Hampshire to Hamas:
This tweet from Ed Husain is no doubt tongue-in-cheek, but note its import: clearly it is an attempt to exonerate the jihad terror group Hamas by equating its murderous mission to the American Revolutionary slogan that is the motto of the state of New Hampshire. Simultaneously Husain minimizes the bloodiness of Hamas and advances a sly moral equivalence argument equating American Revolutionaries with genocidal Islamic jihadists who celebrate the murders of civilians.
And this from a “normal Muslim.” Ed Husain is a prominent non-violent Muslim who recently wrote a piece in the reliably dhimmi Wall Street Journal entitled “Don’t Call Me Moderate, Call Me Normal.” In it, he claimed that “normative Islam is inherently pluralist” and “supported by 1,000 years of Muslim history in which religious freedom was cherished.” He said nothing in this, not surprisingly, about dhimmitude, or about the deprivations, discrimination and harassment suffered by non-Muslims in Islamic societies for centuries.
If Ed Husain wishes to pretend to the world that the situation of Islamic theology and jurisprudence is other than what it is, how sincere a reformer can he be? Wouldn’t a genuine reformer acknowledge the existence of problematic passages and doctrines and formulate new ways to understand them, rather than pretending that they don’t exist at all — except in the minds of violent fanatics and those he would have you believe are merely hatemongers?
Read it all, and also read our posts on Husain who is part of a group of former Muslim jihadists bilking the UK of millions of dollars while refusing to name the ideology he renounces and defending suicide bombings.
Another presumably “normal” Muslim, Mike Ghouse, doesn’t beat around the bush with his thoughts on terror group Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood via:
Bush made the biggest blunder of his life time by not recognizing Hamas, a democratically elected government. Had he done that, the scenario would have been different. Obama made another blunder of his time – by vetoing Palestinian statehood in the UNO, had he done that the security for Israel and justice for the Palestinians would have been imminent.
The biggest blunder of Bush’s life was referring to Islam as a religion of peace – we’ve not recovered since. Lest you think folks like Ghouse are truly about honesty and plurality, just follow them and judge for yourselves:
