The elite’s silence on Islam
Monday, January 14, 2019
The beheading in Morocco has led to a deafening silence in the Norwegian public.
Erna Solberg is the only party leader who has commented on this tragic incident, by calling it incomprehensible. This is a comment far beyond realistic limits.
It is not incomprehensible for Muslims to follow the Qur’an’s command. Then they exercise Allah’s will. If you are reasonably well informed, you will know this. The question then is whether the prime minister knows this at all, or does she not dare to appear on the public scene as well-informed?
The Quran contains over 100 verses of violence against “disbelief”. The New Testament in the Bible contains none. This is a significant difference, as no elite person seems to emphasize.
None of the other party leaders have said anything public about this double dragon, which abruptly robbed two college students of life. Nor should one believe that the whole Muslim world is renouncing this. On social media there are plenty of support statements for the “heroic” who took their lives to “the whores”.
No Norwegian elite person moves to their defense against these perplexed beliefs. When do we get to hear a prominent Norwegian politician stand out and say that this is not something we can accept!
When do we experience hearing someone say this is due to Islam, and not the opposite that we so often hear, namely that such is a distortion of Islam by someone who has kidnapped a “great religion” (President Bush’s statement)?
We are constantly getting excuses for IS not dealing with Islam, they are distorting Islam. Anyone who is a little knowledgeable knows that learned Sunni Islam sources will NOT declare the Sunni Islamic participants in IS as apostate. In short, this means that the IS is perceived as a recognized frontier in Sunni Islam.
One has to be hard on the back to argue that these killings do not have to do with Islam. I don’t need to quote once again to Sura 9: 5, one of the Koran’s most quoted verses. Everything that is in the Qur’an must necessarily be with Islam. Also the verses that came into being in the Mecca era (they are mild and tolerant in the tone), except that many of them are canceled (you will find a list of canceled verses on wiki Islam), and quite a few have been replaced by 9: 5, the sword. Search and see for yourself.
I now hope that a brave Norwegian politician is the first or woman out and says Islam is a foreign element in Norwegian culture, we cannot recognize this as a religion (they have also said in Italy), so Muslim organizations and their mosques will no longer be able to expect any state aid.
Mosques where hat preachers are allowed to operate freely must also be closed. It is clear that to say such a thing requires courage, one then totally breaks the cowardice that has laid itself like a clumsy blanket over the Norwegian political environment. It’s going to be rabble, the chatter class will work on overtime and put in everything they have of resources to talk this down.
H.C. Andersen’s ingenious adventure about the emperor’s new clothes will once again have relevance in this matter. Some have to stand up and say the truth, that the emperor is not wearing clothes. He’s naked.
