Revolution Muslim “Calls for Protest”

Filed under: Uncategorized — theinkhorn @ 11:39 am

In November 2004, Dutch film-maker Theodoor Van Gogh, great-grand nephew of Post-Impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh, was murdered on the streets of Amsterdam. He was shot eight times with a handgun. Not content with merely annihilating him, his murderer, a man by the name of Mohammed Bouyeri, cut his throat nearly to the point of decapitation, before stabbing him in the chest and attaching a note onto his torso with a two knives. Despite his provocative stance towards religion, Islam in particular, and his delight in sparking political controversy, Van Gogh was an intelligent, talented man who willingly abandoned his self-destructive, nihilistic lifestyle for the sake of his son. He was murdered for his directorial role in the short film “Submission”, which portrays the violence women suffer in Islamic societies.

Today, six years after his death, Matt Parker and Trey Stone, creators of South Park, are the new targets. The latest episode of the popular animation series featured the Prophet Mohammed, first behind a black “censored” bar and later in a bear suit. Revolution Muslim, a New-York based radical muslim group issued what they described as a “call to protest”, which went like this:

“We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality that will likely happen to them.”

That is not a call to protest. That is a call to murder. That is a call to kill. A call to expunge. A call to wipe them out. And as much as I want to profess my shock, I simply cannot.

Keep in mind that this group was co-founded by a man who saw nothing wrong with 911, who felt that it was fully justified. Younes Mohammed had previously expressed his disdain for the US and his desire for a Muslim world.

“We’re commanded to terrorize the disbelievers and this is a religion… The Quran says very clearly, in the Arabic language… terrorize them. It’s a command from Allah.”

“I define terrorism as making them fearful so that they think twice before they go rape your mother or kill your brother or go onto your land and try to steal your resources.”

All this follows an interview with an imam from the 96th Street Mosque, who claims that the “real” Islam is a religion of “peace, moderation and friendship, and it opposes any kind of hatred against anybody”. The irony and contradiction makes me shudder with delight.

I applaud Matt Parker and Trey Stone for having the galls to challenge one of the biggest problems faced by modern society. Like I applaud Lars Vilk.  Like I applaud Jyllands-Posten. Like I applaud Salman Rushdie. It is time we got rid of our tendency to remain politically correct and recognise that evil is staring us in the face. It is time we stopped pretending that we don’t know it’s wrong to issue death threats for simple satire. It is time we stopped shoveling faux-tolerance and respect into the engine of religion and pull the emergency brakes. It is time to cease this madness.

  1. And yet they remain in the West and seek all ways and means to settle in the West, even as illegal immigrants. Their actions have spoken louder than their words.

    It is one thing to prostitute one’s soul. It is another to prostitute one’s soul whilst claiming a higher moral ground at the same time!
