An Unusual Survey

My friend, BenS, wonders what would happen if you could do a public opinion survey in France, Sweden, Germany, et al., with this question:

Would you prefer that we urge Jews to leave our country to be replaced by Muslims? Would you approve or disapprove this trade?

While I think I understand why he posed the question, I'm not sure I want to know the answer. Keep in mind that the crowd chose Barabas....

Its not that our Muslim citizens are really the issue.......it is the Damned Islam that they bring with them that is the problem....

Judeo/Christian/Greco beliefs mesh perfectly with Freedom and Democracy.......Islam is completely anti-thetical to our cherished beliefs....

Simply read Islam's teachings and look at the current state of 65 or so Islamic countries and that should be enough to help you decide that Islam is a danger to any society......and as her tribes increase in our societies, those dangers will increase!!

Yes, to you tender hearted red tory and liberal types, that may not be pee cee, but it is the Truth...

Now if you asked would I have a problem with moderate Turks and secular Arabs and apostate Persians.......of course not....all people are equal..........however all ideologies and creeds are not........and because we have failed to heed this truth, we are now facing eventual 'blood in the streets' from Copenhagen to Dearborn.........

In short, Islam is the ideology of the devil.

My name is Zahra Kazemi. I am an Iranian journalist tortured for my reporting. I am also a Muslim who is offended by this post.

What offends you? That someone might ask such a question?

Posted by: The Eclectic Econoclast | 2005-09-25 6:08:53 PM

Zahra, I am immediately suspicious of who you are because at one point you describe yourself as a Persian but then your name you have beside Posted by is 'Arab Journalist'??? Their is something here that doesn't add up my friend!

Also, too bad if you are offended......we tend to believe in free speech and that includes the right to label Islam as a dangerous ideology which of course it is...

If you have proof to the contrary that Islam is peaceful, then by all means present it and enlighten us!!???

We certainly have enough material from the Quran and Sahih Hadiths and Sunnah that present Muhammed and his Islam as deranged and violent......please prove us wrong!!

I will be waiting...

How soon we forget. The real Zahra Kazemi was tortured and killed by the Iranian government as a spy in 2003.

Approve, because Jews believe that any manifestation of Gentile ethno-centrism (i.e. excluding Muslims) is a threat to Jews.

Auster writes "In their minds (Jews), any desire on the part of Gentiles to maintain an all-Gentile country club, (freedom of association) or any statement, no matter how mild and civilized, that shows any concern about any aspects of the cultural and political influence of Jews in American life, is seen as leading potentially to Auschwitz, and must therefore be ruthlessly condemned and suppressed."

The principle is that "all bigotry is indivisible" so if Muslims, Catholics, or homosexuals are excluded it portends a threat to Jews. Otherwise, why would B'nai B'rith support including Islam under Ontario's Arbitration Act, when Muslims are killing Israelis? Why do Jews support Muslim immigration? It is because the real threat, in the view of the Jews, is white Christian ethnocentrism. Is there justification for Jewish trepidation? Of course there is. However, it hardly justifies pushing for "the mass immigration of their deadliest enemies."

However, from the perspective of the gentiles of France, Sweden and Germany having the Jews in those societies emigrate to Israel will expedite the end to Muslim immigration and begin the repatriation of Muslim immigrants. Alternatively, Jews must hold their nose and support white gentile ethnocentrism and realise the greater threat is Islam.
