IGST: The great teachings of Islam.
If you grant for a moment the proposition that the West is decadent, wouldn't you think these profound thinkers, these infinitely holy men who churn out prayers faster than a solar-powered Tibetan prayer wheel, could come up with something that would warrant some serious consideration by decent people willing to consider other viewpoints?
One would think, yes.
This is one seriously insecure bunch of men who are terrified of women and the loss of privileged male sexual and political control. They experience utter terror at the thought of free thought.
Indeed. Such stories bring to mind this quote from Churchill:
You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police. Yet in their hearts there is unspoken – unspeakable! – fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts! Words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home, all the more powerful because they are forbidden. These terrify them. A little mouse – a little tiny mouse! – of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.
