They shoot back in Arizona

May 7, 2010

Arizona has been heavily criticized since passing Senate Bill 1070, its immigration enforcement bill. The state’s governor, Jan Brewer, has been a lightning rod for that criticism since signing the bill, even to the point of being subjected to terroristic pranks.

Apparently, she’s no shrinking violet. In response to critics (including President Obama), Brewer’s campaign unloads both barrels:

I wonder if President Thin-Skin Obama will let this go by without a reply? He has a hard time rising above the fray and acting presidential, but, given the national popularity of the new Arizona law, he might do well to concede the field to Governor Brewer.

If this guy’s a moderate Muslim, there’s no hope

May 7, 2010

For some reason, many in the West hold up Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi as the model of a moderate Muslim with whom we can get along. (Meaning, “appease.”) Why he’s considered a moderate, I don’t know; his record gives the lie to that legend.

But, why not let the man speak for himself and let the vast readership ( Rolling on the floor ) of Public Secrets make up their own minds? Thanks to MEMRI here are two clips of Qaradawi speaking and preaching over the years.

Part 1:

Part 2:

Note toward the end of the first clip where he says “Religion must lead to war.” Qaradawi is referring to the Islamic supremacist and jihadist imperatives that are an inseparable part of Islam. There is nothing “moderate,” “peaceful,” or “tolerant” about this.

Proof that words are relative, I guess.
