A couple of interesting new wrinkles in the Islamists’ War Against the World this week.
In no particular order, first, a former radical Muslim is now saying that the worldwide riots by “the Muslim street” following the publication in Denmark of a few cartoons they found offensive, were not as spontaneous as we were led to believe.
“The Danish Muslim says Hamas, Hezbollah, and various Muslim diplomats all conspired to fan flames of rioting after Denmark’s 2006 Muhammed cartoon controversy,” according to the Associated Press and the Times of Israel. The ex-terrorist said there was nothing spontaneous about the protests and violence that escalated to the point that the Danish Prime Minister called it “the worst international crisis for Denmark since World War II.”
There was also a fatwa issued against the cartoonist, who was forced into hiding, if I’m not mistaken, having hundreds of millions of homicidal Islamic fanatics hungry for his blood.
The reaction to the cartoons, which depicted the Profit Muhammed wearing a bomb turban, was “a calculated response drawn up by Danish imams and various Muslim ambassadors who appealed for help to both influential Muslim states and terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah,” the reports say.
Paliwood with a twist.
This brings several truths into sharp relief, it seems to me.
First, it shows how easily “the Muslim street” is whipped into a mindless, violent feeding frenzy. I know of no other group today that can quite as easily be turned into an ugly, seething, mindless mob based on nothing whatsoever.
This revelation also illustrates how quickly the rest of us believe that the Muslim world is comprised mostly of maniacs that spend most of the time barely containing a brutal, vicious, barbaric nature, and for whom the slightest breeze can be a trigger.
I mean, if Jews went off their collective rocker whenever anyone said, drew or wrote something offensive to Jews, the whole world would be a smoldering pile long before now.
It also proves there are Muslim leaders who are intentionally spreading the lies that both set their people off and the ones being fed to the rest of us about the nature of the problem and the reaction to it.
The second piece of news, very similar in nature to the first, actually, is that Hamas reportedly paid hundreds of young men on the Temple Mount to harass and throw stones at visiting Jews.
This is what a captured Hamas operative is telling the Israelis.
So those stone-throwing riots are also not as spontaneous as we have been led to believe.
“These men, who ostensibly are studying Islamic theology at the site, are paid a monthly salary” of ($1,150-$1,440) to create anti-Jewish violence, according to the report.
This means, I guess, that the rest of the Palestinian people are too busy living their lives to bother harassing Jews who come to pray at Judaism’s holiest site, but their leaders don’t want anyone to get the impression, God-forbid, that they’re willing to live in peace with the Jews.
It seems a little bit like a through-the-looking-glass version of the traditional Shabbos Goy, whom orthodox Jews would pay to light their stove or other mundane thing they couldn’t by Jewish law do themselves on the Sabbath, only in this case the “faithful” are paying their own people to create havoc, injure innocents and put themselves in harm’s way.
And lastly, and possibly containing the most potential hope for the future, is the arrest of several BDS activists by the Palestinian Authority. The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement seeks to exclude Israelis and Jews from academic, cultural, scientific, journalistic, athletic, business and other circles worldwide, in much the same way the Nazis did before throwing all pretense out the window and going for the “final solution.”
“The Palestinian Authority has come to the conclusion that the BDS activists are in fact anti”peace extremists whose goal is to prevent any peaceful settlement between Israel and the Palestinians,” reports say.
“The decision to prosecute the four Ramallah activists is also aimed at sending a message to BDS supporters worldwide that the movement is acting against the true interests of the Palestinians and promoting hatred and bigotry.”
That is, in fact, true, if the true interests of the Palestinian Arabs is peaceful coexistence with the Jews and others of Israel.
“It now remains to be seen whether BDS supporters around the world will absorb the message and realize that apart from being anti-Israel, BDS is also an anti-Palestinian and anti-peace movement,” the report said.
The movement’s reaction to this should be watched with interest, because it will also prove if the BDS movement actually gives a rat’s ass about the Palestinians or if, as I suspect, the Palestinian Arabs are being used, once again, as fodder for a different agenda altogether.
