Moderate muslimer, hvilken vej

Britain’s Daily Mail, Jan. 29, 2007, reported in the article “Multiculturalism drives young Muslims to shun British values”:

Multiculturalism has alienated an entire generation of young Muslims and made them increasingly radical, a report has found. In stark contrast with their parents, growing numbers sympathize with extreme teachings of Islam, with almost four in 10 wanting to live under Sharia law in Britain. The study identifies significant support for wearing the veil in public … and even punishment by death for Muslims who convert to another religion. Most alarmingly, 13 percent of young Muslims said they “admired” organizations such as al-Qaida which are prepared to “fight the West.”

Germany’s Spiegel, Dec. 20, 2007, reported in the article “Interior Ministry warns of radicalization of Muslims”:

A new study released by Germany’s Interior Ministry has added new fuel to the debate about integration of Muslims in Germany, with the report warning about the danger of radicalization of Muslims. According to the study … 40 percent of Muslims surveyed had a “fundamentalist orientation” … 6 percent of those surveyed were classified as having “violent tendencies,” while 14 percent of respondents had “anti-democratic” tendencies. … The report also concluded that religious beliefs are becoming increasingly important for young people.

(…)

Moderate Muslims think the remaining area of the world will submit to Allah in the distant future, maybe at the Hour of Judgment. Therefore, since it is so far off, it is acceptable to get along with non-Muslims in the present.

Fundamental violent Muslims think the rest of the world is submitting to Allah now and feel it is Islam’s “manifest destiny” to make it happen. They would just as soon fight moderate Muslims, considering them backslidden from following the example of Muhammad and the caliphs.

Moderate Muslims are hesitant to speak out against fundamental violent Muslims, as occasionally one does and they are threatened, intimidated, forced to change their names for protection, have fatwas put on them and even killed.

So there could, in a sense, be three groups of Muslims: a minority of fundamental violent ones; a majority of moderate ones who are afraid of the fundamental violent ones; and the courageous dead ones who were not afraid of the fundamental violent ones.

The West may be inadvertently fueling the problem by not understanding that fundamental Muslims interpret their “politeness” as weakness or submission.

Saudi Arabia was pressured to revise its fundamental textbooks supplied to Muslim schools around the world, including the U.S., because they contained intolerance.

The Washington Post, May 21, 2006, published excerpts of these textbooks in an article “This is a Saudi textbook (after the intolerance was removed)”:

4TH GRADE: “True belief means … that you hate the polytheists and infidels.”

5TH GRADE: “It is forbidden for a Muslim to be a loyal friend to someone who does not believe in Allah and His Prophet.”

8TH GRADE: “The apes are Jews, the people of the Sabbath; while the swine are the Christians, the infidels of the communion of Jesus.”

9TH GRADE: “It is part of Allah’s wisdom that the struggle between the Muslim and the Jews should continue until the Hour [of Judgment].”

11TH GRADE: “Do not yield to Christians and Jews on a narrow road out of honor and respect.”

One may have to read that last line again:

“DO NOT YIELD to Christians and Jews on a narrow road out of honor and respect.”

In other words, when a Christian or Jew thinks they are being polite by letting a Muslim go first, the fundamental student is taught that they are simply acknowledging Islam’s superiority.

(…)So the question again is: What goes through the mind of a moderate Muslim, who thinks the world will submit to Allah in the distant future, when they see this predominately Judeo-Christian nation going to great lengths to tolerate Islam now?

Though America’s actions are done in hopes that tolerance of Islam will result in Muslims being more tolerant of non-Muslims, an unintended consequence is emerging, namely, that these actions are actually radicalizing some moderate Muslims by providing proof that the world is submitting to Allah – not in the distant future – but right now before their eyes!

They become persuaded that that their long-awaited desire of the non-Muslim world “dar al-harb” (House of War) becoming “dar al-Islam” (House of Islam) is imminent.

(…)

Islam is already the fastest-growing religion in Europe. Driven by immigration and high birthrates, the number of Muslims on the continent has tripled in the last 30 years. Most demographers forecast a similar or even higher rate of growth in the coming decades.

Could it be the more the West exhibits hyper-tolerance, the more it turns some moderate Muslims, who believe the world will submit to Allah in the distant future, into fundamental violent Muslims, who view this tolerance as evidence the world is submitting to Allah now?

“Personal” tolerance in the West is rooted in Judeo-Christian concepts like “love your enemies” and “turn the other cheek,” but Franklin D. Roosevelt warned regarding “national” tolerance in a Fireside Chat, Dec. 29, 1940:

“No man can tame a tiger into a kitten by stroking it.”

I den danske debat regner men med at moderate muslimer er på vores side og gerne “vil” det danske samfund, for det ligger i ordet moderat, at man kan moderere. Men begrebet “moderate muslimer” er værdiladet og vildledende og burde erstattes af “typiske muslimer”. Den typiske muslim er så den muslim, der er flest af og, som de fleste mennesker i denne verden, i det daglige har travlt med at få hverdagen til at hænge sammen. Men det er stadig en muslim hvis moral og verdensbillede er skabt af islam og som vælger side i en konflikt derefter. Det er de typiske muslimer, der af den ene eller anden grund, let forvandler sig til de frådende masser og hysterisk følger de radikale muslimer, som man hellere burde betegne seriøse muslimer, i kamp når krigen starter.

Der er dog en gruppe muslimer, som han glemmer, nemlig dem der er håb for. Fanget i en sandwich mellem den daglige terror fra de seriøse muslimer og truslen om de typiske muslimers ukontrolerede vrede holder de lav profil. De er kommet til Danmark og andre dele af den frie verden for at slippe væk fra islam. Men vi hører ikke fra dem for hvem tør åbent iblandt en stadig voksende islamisk minoritet, at frasige sig islam i et samfund, der virker som om at det snart bliver et kalifat? Hvis vi vil høre fra dem, og deres ord vil veje tungt af etos, skal vi demonstrere at vi er stærke og at festen slutter her. Dette er Danmark.

  1. Den gruppe muslimer der er håb for, hører vi ikke noget til, for de oplever desværre at Integrationsminister Birthe Rønn Hornbech vælger at mødes med Islamisk Trossamfunds repræsentanter. Så må det jo være den form for islam den danske regering foretrækker at acceptere i Danmark.

  2. Jeg havde selv spottet denne spændende artikel. Jeg har oversat den og lagt den på min blog. Jeg fandt den godt nok på en anden hjemmeside. Det viser dens væsentlighed. Læg især mærke til den langsomme tilpasning i USA til muslimske sædvaner i forståelsens misforståede navn.
