The Right Not To Obey Islamic Law

posted at 6:38 pm on April 23, 2010 by

Many crimes take place in two locations. For example, a kidnapping begins at the primary crime scene where you are actually abducted. The secondary crime scene is where you are held hostage, and where your kidnapper can torture, rape or murder you at his leisure. That’s the entire point of going there; to bring you further under his control. Islamic attacks on free speech are an attempted kidnapping of western civilization. Compliance with those attacks represents going to the secondary crime scene. That’s what Comedy Central has done. The trouble is that these sorts of scenarios never turn out well for the victim.

At the heart of the South Park controversy is whether Trey Parker and Matt Stone – and by extension, Comedy Central – have the right not to obey Islamic law. Abu Talhah al Amrikee/Revolution Muslim thinks they do not; that it’s reasonable and normal that the death penalty be administered for the offense of insulting Islam:

Abu Talhah al Amrikee, the author of the post [on the Muslim website threatening the creators of the show], told Foxnews.com he wrote the entry to “raise awareness.” He said the grisly photograph of van Gogh was meant to “explain the severity” of what Parker and Stone did by mocking Muhammad.

“It’s not a threat, but it really is a likely outcome,” al Amrikee said, referring to the possibility that Parker and Stone could be murdered for mocking Muhammad. “They’re going to be basically on a list in the back of the minds of a large number of Muslims. It’s just the reality.”

If I were to post my opinion that a likely outcome to his comment is a pack of furious New Yorkers, upon seeing this guy out on the street [insert address here], would tackle this guy and administer a righteous beating, I suspect Mr. al Amrikee might feel threatened. Ibrahim Hooper would be on every cable news show worrying about Islamophobia and explaining why we need to be more sensitive.

This is why Bill O’Reilly’s response is so disgraceful.

He would have advised them not to do it, and he thinks this will blow over. Why should we allow that, especially since it seems clear that South Park’s creators don’t want to let it blow over? Is there any other reason why they keep coming back to this topic? Madison Conservative wrote about Comedy Central’s decision,

There are lots of cracks about the phrase “the terrorists have won”. Well, this is one of the clearest, truest signs that they have. It’s utterly abominable, and everyone responsible for this craven, pusillanimous decision is a worthless coward.

Add everyone who wonders whether we ought to go along to get along – mustn’t upset the Muslims! – and like O’Reilly, doesn’t know “if the risk, reward is worth it.” I’d be very interested in finding out precisely what O’Reilly thinks would be worth it. We have the right not to obey Islamic laws, and we’d better exercise that right if we want to retain it. Now. Not later, when compliance like Comedy Central’s has become so ingrained in us that we have to overcome that before we can fight back against our prospective oppressors.

As Kate at Small Dead Animals put it -

You see – there’s the difference between an “extremist” and a “moderate”. The “extremist” is the one with the death threat. The “moderate” is the one who explains what you’ve done to deserve it.

Nice job nailing O’Reilly. That fat douchebag only ever has balls when he can talk over someone on his show. What a creep.

Nice job nailing O’Reilly.

Nice job nailing the situation, too.

And what a great quote:

As per our MM and a sign on my front window, ‘I WILL NOT SUBMIT’. Our this bho and his team wants to take away our 1st and let those, ropma type, dictate what we can do. If we don’t get a handle on this, we will be like the UK and every other country who is dealing with these people.

Corporate SLIME. How much money have they made off Parker, Stone, and the First Amendment? Now, they do this to us. Those worms can’t afford the protection most of us can’t? They can go to hell.

Is this pithy enough?

O’Reilly is a putz. Nuff sed.

:-) The funny thing is I wasn’t thinking of O’Blowhard when I started; I don’t watch the show. (I don’t even have cable TV.) I was just looking for people’s reactions to SP and stumbled across the clip.

Great analysis Laura, I think you pretty much nailed. People forget that we are in a war, a world war that Islam has started against humanity 1400 years ago. Islam went dormant for a couple of centuries, but now re-energized with petro-dollars, the jihad is on the march again.

And while we’re on the subject of being non-PC’s, non-dhimmis, non-submitters to Islam, I want to stress that just as there is no such thing as a moderate Nazi or moderate rapist, so too with Islam and muslims.

Those muslims who reject jihad and sharia law and happen to be genuinely peaceful, are in the minority. The majority (based on international polls) support the Islamification of the world and reject freedom and democracy.

The Hindus have a similar saying to Kate’s:

A moderate muslim holds you down while
a radical muslim cuts your head off

And you are absolutely right, the time to stand up for freedom is right now, not when muslims have established blasphemy laws and used others forms of legal jihad to intimidate us into silence so that we won’t be able to resist the destruction of our democracy and conversion to Islam.

Getting back to my point about this being a war, 9/11 was our wake up call and we missed that opportunity (thanks to Bush) and have allowed the leftist-muslim (or red-green) alliance to dominate the battle-space of ideas. Both of course deny we’re even at war and trivialize the very real threat that Islam poses to every man, woman and child on earth.

Sun Tzu’s famous dictum ‘know yourself, know your enemy and you will be victorious’ is meant for the kind of predicament we’re in today. If we don’t know who we’re fighting, even though we’re 100 times more powerful than our enemies, we will lose.

Which is why it’s last thing muslims want us to do-figure out that Islam is a total fraud and a death cult posing as a legitimate, peaceful, respectable world religion in league with other great religions like Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc.

The truth is that Islam was founded by a warlord who was a thief, mass-murderer, child-rapist, polygamist, enslaver and a lunatic. If he was alive today he’d likely be the leader of Al Qaeda and we’d be trying to kill him as we are with Osama bin Laden.

Islam is largely modeled on Mohammad and muslims consider him to be the ‘perfect man’ and someone to emulate. And he taught muslims to wage an endless war against us non-muslims until we convert, are subjugated or killed.

This is the truth that muslims don’t want us to find out. Which is why they keep us focused on all the things that offend them, like insulting their pedo-prophet, or their genocide manual (holy book) the Quran, or their death cult Islam.

They know once we figure it out, we can’t be duped or cowed into submission any longer, the game will be up. Once Islam is exposed in the sober light of day for the evil, fascist totalitarian, medieval barbarian ideology that it is, we’ll need to make some hard choices about how to deal with it.

But if we are prevented by liberals and muslims from even talking about, then we’re on a slippery slope to oblivion. I don’t say that lightly-we shouldn’t be so arrogant to assume America can’t be destroyed by invaders from within (or even enemies from without like Iran/Pakistan or muslim terrorists with nukes). Many great civilizations like the Hindus, Persians, Byzantines, etc, have been decimated by Islam, with 270 million people genocided by this death cult so far.

While in North America we still have a little time left, Europe is reaching a tipping point and is almost lost. Some cities are already majority muslim. Areas with large muslim populations like in France and Britain have been declared ‘no-go zones’ for non-muslims because muslims will attack and kill infidels if we set foot on their ‘muslim land,’ basically their conquered territory in our countries.

For me the problem of Islam and its solution are crystal clear but I’m just one person. We need our masses and elites to wake up soon, otherwise one day we’ll either be all face-down, ass-up praying to Mecca 5 times a day and wrapping our wives/daughters in bedsheets for the rest of their lives, while the men prepare for the next jihad against more ‘infidels’ or maybe another sect of Islam. Or we’ll be having street battles with muslims in a civil war when we finally wake up and begin to fight to the death to take back our freedom and country.

A long time ago (in 1805 to be exact) the United States
set out to destroy a menace on the seas.

Previous to this, a political party met a sad end. This party (the federalists of old) ran on the line of ‘Millions for Defense, not a penny for tribute.’ It met it’s end when it broke it’s promises.

The enemy was the Barbary pirates, a foe from the Ottoman Empire (what was left of the Caliphate of old). And in an attempt to stop piracy, the Federalists pursued a policy of appeasement and tribute. The attacks continued, and a number of American sailors became hostages.

Why did this enemy fight us? Their sole response:

It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every muslim who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.

When Thomas Jefferson heard of this from his secretary of state, he decided to abandon the old policy. The new policy was the 19th century equivalent of ‘shock and awe’.

Such piracy only ended with a vicious show of force. The response was simple yet crushing: sail to the headquarters of these pirates and capture it. When naval force failed, the marines would not. They ended up flying the flag over Tripoli (which is where that line in the Marine Corps anthem came from).

And when they did it again… we sailed back to algiers and finished the job… by sailing to their harbors and shelling the shore until not one brick was left standing atop another one.

These brutes only understand force. We should not hesitate, therefore, to show we have it in spades.
