“The kaffar, the disbelievers, the atheists who remain deaf and stubborn to the teachings of Islam, the rational message of the Quran; they are described in the Quran as, quote, “a people of no intelligence”, Allah describes them as; not of no morality, not as people of no belief - people of “no intelligence” - because they’re incapable of the intellectual effort it requires to shake off those blind prejudices, to shake off those easy assumptions about this world, about the existence of God. In this respect, the Quran describes the atheists as “cattle”, as cattle of those who grow the crops and do not stop and wonder about this world.” – Medhi Husan, editor, New Statesman
The degree of Leftist hypocrisy, the sheer patronisation of Muslims and Islam and the cynical and opportunist way he - or the Left generally - uses Islam and Muslims makes you feel physically sick.
There seems to be no limit to what Leftists (such as this journalist) will say and do to protect Islam and Islamism. They have gone so far, in their patronisation and opportunism that they simply can’t stop now. Things can only get worse. Just as they did in Iran in 1979 when Leftists first started being put up against walls and then shot by their ‘revolutionary’ Islamist friends.
Actually that's not right. It's not that they're averse to the consequences. They're all too aware of them. Social division and disorder are the ends, a box of matches, jerry can of petrol and Waterstone's discount card the means. [You may fart outside a mosque and a Muslim may bomb a nursery school. Should we be ‘averse’ to that ‘consequence’? Should we give in to every Muslim threat and every piece of Muslim blackmail - threats and blackmail which effectively demand that every non-Muslim in this country should be subject to sharia blasphemy law?
Did the New Statesman as a whole ever criticise the innumerable anti-Christian works of art over the last fifty years? The numberless academic works that not only criticised Christianity; but mocked it? What did it say about The Last Temptation of Christ? If anything - this Leftist rag would have praised it as a work of art. (I'm not saying that it isn't.)
Thus, again, Christianity isn't Brown and Exotic and thus not ripe for Leftist patronisation. The hypocrisy here is nauseating.]
