Cynical Promise to Moslems
As Allison Pearson noted in a recent issue of the British Daily Telegraph:
’Tis the election season, so promises fall from the lips of our leaders like blossom from an apple tree. Some promises are more cynical and stinky than others.
One of the most cynical was from the Labour Party leader Ed Miliband, who promised Moslems that a future Labour government would outlaw “Islamaphobia” , making it an “aggravated crime”. As Allison Pearson notes, Miliband told Muslim News that he would make sure “Islamophobia” was marked on offenders’ records, to enable the police to root out this “hate crime”.
The reason, of course, is that Moslems tend overwhelmingly to vote Labour, and Miliband wants to keep it that way. Never mind that gangs of Moslem men in Rotherham and other places have been corrupting, trafficking in, and raping thousands of vulnerable white schoolgirls in Rotherham and other places. Local authorities, police and social services—shame on them—have done nothing to protect these children for fear of being considered “racist”, and alienating “the community”. Allison Pearson comments:
Far from focusing on Islamophobia, Mr Miliband should be directing Labour apparatchiks, brainwashed about the joys of multiculturalism, to root out the hate crime of misogyny, still considered acceptable by so many in ‘the community’.
She concludes that a new aggravated crime of “Islamaphobia” makes it even less likely that monsters such as those in Rotherham will be “outed”.
I’m not suggesting that all Moslems approve of rape, but “the Prophet Mohammed” (as we now have to call this rebarbative and bloodthirsty paedophile) would certainly not have objected to such conduct. Indeed, it appears to have the sanction of the Koran, in these two convoluted verses:
Sura 23:1-6—The Believers must (eventually) win through—those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or the captives whom their right hand possess—for in their case they are free from blame.
Sura 70:22-30—Not so those devoted to Prayer—those who remain steadfast to their prayer; and those in whose wealth is a recognized right for the (needy) who asks and him who is prevented (for some reason from asking); and those who hold to the truth of the Day Of Judgement; and those who fear the displeasure of their Lord—for their Lord’s displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquility—and those who guard their chastity, except with their wives and the (captives) whom their right hands possess—for then they are not to be blamed.
Can there be any doubt that in the eyes of some Moslems, the unfortunate schoolgirls of Rotherham amount to “captives whom their right hands possess”, and are therefore fair game?
In passing, I note that the Church of England, in what amounted to an act of apostasy, effectively denied the divinity of Our Lord, subordinating Him to Mohammed in a Turkish prayer recited during a service in Westminster Abbey to commemorate the Gallipoli campaign. I’m glad to record that the erastian Anglican blog archbishopcranmer was appalled:
In Islamic theology, Mohammed was ‘The Prophet’ who came to fulfil and complete the partial revelations of all preceding prophets. Muslims believe that his coming was prophesied by Jesus: ‘But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father.’ (Jn 15:26). The ‘Comforter’ or ‘Advocate’ (NIV) whom Christians believe to be the Holy Spirit is, for Muslims, Mohammed. So when he is declared in Westminster Abbey to be ‘The Chosen One’, it is not simply a benign multifaith expression of ecumenical respect in a commemorative service of reconciliation: it is a dogmatic affirmation of a perfected prophethood to which Jesus is subordinate, and His divinity thereby denied.
It may not be very PC or neighbourly or conducive to interfaith relations to say it, but Mohammed was a false prophet (Jer 14:14-16; 1Jn 4:1; Acts 4:12; 2Cor 11:3f). By rejecting the crucifixion and denying the resurrection of Christ (who is not the ‘Chosen One’), Islam espouses ‘another Jesus’, ‘another spirit’ and ‘another gospel’. They are and ought to remain free to proclaim their religiosity, however false and erroneous it may be. But not, please God, in the Collegiate Church of St Peter (aka Westminster Abbey), which is a Royal Peculiar of the Supreme Governor.
Finally, don’t you just love the placard below. It just about encapsulates everything you need to know about Islam and its “prophet”. Brutal, humourless and devoid of any sense of irony.
