Islam Radical is the New Normal

Stoning_Adultery_DeathIslamic extremism is neither rare nor fundamental seems to be the main point of an Islamic Peace Conference. Is this radical normalcy, extreme moderate?

“Muslim “peace conference” in Norway confirming that all muslims want murder by stoning method, not only radicals. Muslim ask, “what shall media and politicians say now, shall they deport us?”
The arrogance is derived from the confidence of the audience confirming that any punishment, regardless, as stated in the Koran is justified, including that the vast majority of the audience called themselves moderate. Self described moderate Muslims condone separation of women, stoning for gays and adulterers, and death for apostasy. Further that since so many Muslims believe this what are you gonna do about it? You can’t deport us all, we’re too many and one.

Sam Harris was brief on the looking glass aspect of this and includes transcribed text from the video.
How dare you call us “extremists” when we represent so many? We are not extreme. This is Islam. They have a point. And it is time for secular liberals and (truly) moderate Muslims to stop denying it.

Jaclynn Glenn youtubed on this and rightly blames the Koran and not economic circumstances or retaliation against colonialism. The people at the conference are not saying they believe this because they do not have jobs or because they were oppressed by the West. Look at all those men.

The EU must accept Muslim immigrants.

The EU central governments are forcing local counties to accept masses of new refugees that the central government don’t know what to do with. The situation is so desperate after 20 years of massimmigration. Europe is now housing 80 million immigrated muslims who mostly live on EU welfare plus additional millions of non-muslims from outside Europe.

About 2000 new refugees arrive to Sweden each week from Syria. This is a record despite that fact that Sweden already broke all records of bringing in new refugees. Due to the pressure the Swedish government decided to give all Syrians permanent residency with lifetime welfare, free housing, food, clothes, cars, educations, priority before swedes to government jobs and welfare, etc. (This sound strange but it’s true.)

The Swedish government has no intention to slow down the mass immigration of mainly muslims from about 900 different tribes / ethnic groups and about 210 nations and non-nation regions in the world.

Liberal countries seem to think people seeking asylum from religious wars will embrace the ideals of the country to which they move. Safe harbors for the oppressed. Those who leave from wars often leave because they are losing. They would prefer to be winning and they would prefer their politics-philosophy-religion ruled wherever they are.

Islam is a religion of peace because whatever they believe it is believed by many as Islamic not because of any consideration of agression or radical as action.

The question these Islamophobic journalists need to reflect upon is; are these so called ‘‘radical’’ views that they criticize endorsed only by these few individuals being invited around the globe, or does the common Muslims believe in them. If the common Muslims believe in these values that means that more or less all Muslims are radical and that Islam is a radical religion. Since this is not the case, as Islam is a peaceful religion and so are the masses of common Muslims, these Shaykhs cannot be radical. Rather it is Islamophobia from the ignorant western media who is more concerned about making money by alienating Islam by presenting Muslims in this way.

Just remember you must say “Peace be upon him” whenever you utter the name Mohammed or you insult Islam and offend Muslims which is blasphemy which is worthy of a fatwa punishment–oh wait, “old” moderates said it was worthy of intellectual discussion and the Koran never directly says to punish others except in war, sedition, or rebellion. By that measure the above group in Norway was seditious and rebellious and should be punished. Where are the Imams now?

Jim Newman, bright and well

About Jim Newman

Jim Newman is a philosopher. When I was young I wondered what was the ultimate truth. How should I behave? What makes it all work? I was intensely curious to know what it all means. It was enlightening to realize there is no ultimate truth, but nevertheless sufficient and necessary turth, and that meaning was a meta analysis of living one’s life. In this sense my work has been living large. Living and experiencing life has made me learn many things. Building boats, motors, houses, electronics. Raising animals. Teaching. Writing. Photography. Drawing. Knitting. Sewing. Cooking. Music. Painting. Hiking. Aboriginal living skills. All material aspects of reality that seem irrelevant until you realize they allow you to experience more. My epiphany came when I read Christopher Hitchen’s “Letters to a Young Contrarian” and I felt vindicated in my many meals of sacred cow.
