Threats and Violence: Islam's Tools for Spreading the Peace

Rep. Pete King of New York called out Imam Rauf.  He believes that the follower of the "religion of peace" threatened the critics of the ground zero mosque.

"To me, it's almost as if he's blackmailing and threatening the United States that somehow if the mosque is not approved or people speak out against his mosque, you have to worry about being attacked by Islamic terrorists," Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf on Fox Business Network on Friday.

King said that the Islamic center was being "put there to make a statement, not to build bridges, but to make a statement."

"We don't have to prove ourselves to anyone and certainly don't have to measure up to some standard set by an imam who said that the U.S. was a co-conspirator of 9/11,"


This threat should be taken seriously.  When a cartoon of Muhammad was published in a Danish Newspaper, Muslims throughout the world arose in protest.  Armed gunman took over an E.U. office in Palestine:

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Masked gunmen today took over an office used by the European Union to protest the publication of cartoons deemed insulting to Islam.

About five gunmen stormed the building, closing the office down, while 10 other armed men stood watch outside. One of the militants said they were protesting the drawings, one of which depicted Islam's Prophet Muhammad wearing a turban shaped as a bomb.

You can't even be critical of Islam, as Theo Van Gogh found out.  The Danish filmmaker produced a documentary about Islam and the treatment of women.  A lover of the "religion of peace" took umbrage and stabbed the infidel.  He also tried to cut off Mr. Van Gogh's head.  The film maker's last words were 'can we talk about this?' 

When Pope Benedict quoted the observations of a 14th century Byzantine Emperor, who stated that the teachings of Muhammad are evil and inhumane, and of spreading the faith by the sword; Muslims around the world resorted to threats and violence:

Seven churches in the West Bank and Gaza were set on fire. Religious seminaries closed down in protest in Iran, where Ahmad Khatami, a leading cleric, told students at a mosque in the holy city of Qom that the Pope’s remark’s were inflammatory. The Tehran Times said that the Pope’s remarks were “code words for the start of a new Crusade”.

Morocco recalled its ambassador to the Vatican and there were further street protests by Muslims in Pakistan, India and Turkey. An Iraqi insurgent group, the Mujahidin Army, threatened a suicide bomb attack against the Vatican on a website used in the past by militants. Addressed to “the dogs of Rome”, it said: “Our minds will not rest until we shake your thrones and break your crosses in your home.”

The adherents to the "religion of peace" even resorted to murder.  A Somali nun was shot in the back numerous times while she entered a hospital.  And when the Pope apologized for having the audacity to quote the last Christian Emperor of Constantinople, a Turkish Magistrate said it wasn't good enough:

Mehmet Aydin, the Turkish Minister of State, said that the Pope seemed to be saying he was sorry for the outrage but not necessarily the remarks themselves. “You either have to say this ‘I’m sorry’ in a proper way or not say it at all,” he said. “Are you sorry for saying such a thing or because of its consequences?”  

I believe the West and other civilized countries of the world had better wake up and take heed.  You can't allow barbarians such as Muslims to immigrate into your country.  Their value system is completely different than ours; even hostile.
