The Religion of Peace II

I wrote this a few days ago:

Too many Westerners are idiotically polite in stating that the terrorists are mutilating and misinterpreting Islam. Such is not the case. In fact, the biggest difference between Muslim terrorists and the rest of the Muslims is that the terrorists are a bit impatient. They want sharia to be implemented in their relevant geographic location and soon everywhere. The non-terroristic Muslims are patiently waiting for the West to crumble and then, with strength in numbers, sharia will be enforced on Western soil.

How do you explain the existence of Sheikh Abdul Hadi Palazzi of Italy, an ordained imam who supports the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state and has visited several times, supports western democracy and greatly circumscribes the concept of jihad (and is still alive)?

I realize now that I had made an error. I had presented a false, binary option. I should have been more clear. The Islamic world can be divided into not two but three categories:

  • Sharia-now Muslims: Terrorists and their financiers.
  • Sharia-soon Muslims: Non-terroristic, majority of the Muslim world.
  • Sharia-whatever Muslims: A minority in the Islamic world.

It is a fact that most Muslims support sharia and a global Islamic superstate (the Caliphate) which can enforce sharia.

Specifically, the World Public University of Maryland poll (released February 25, 2009) indicated the following about our putative Muslim ally nations of Egypt and Pakistan: 81% of the Muslims of “moderate” Egypt, the largest Arab Muslim nation, desire a “strict” application of Shari’a, Islamic law; 76% of Pakistan’s Muslims — one of the most important and sizable non-Arab Muslim populations — want this outcome. Furthermore, 70% of Egyptian Muslims and 69% of Pakistani Muslims desire the re-creation of a “single Islamic state or caliphate.” Elsewhere, I have detailed the totalitarian impact of these fulfilled Islamic desires — based upon their doctrinal and historical application across space and time.

What part of killing apostates, beheading alcohol consumers, stoning adulterers etc. is moderate? Of course, some Muslims don't support such barbarity (and they should re-examine why they continue to call themselves a Muslim) but their presence doesn't negate the reality of the majority -- which is ideologically as murderous as the terrorists.

How do you explain the existence of Sheikh Abdul Hadi Palazzi

How do you explain the existence of any statistically insignificant minority?
