|When will the "anti-hate" crowd take on the vitriolic hate in Islam?|
The article goes on to report that the so-called "anti-hate" people outnumbered those who were protesting the "Islamization of the West". These latter were eventually spirited away "under a hail of anti-hate supporters".
1. Note how the anti-anti Islam folk are called "anti-hate". There's no evidence provided that those opposing "Islamisation of the West" were motivated by "hate". It's just becoming the meme: that if you're against Islam, you're a hater. They could well be people just like me. No hate here, just concern that there really is an Islamisation of the west going on, and it's not for the better.
2. The Koran is full of hate for non-Muslims.
Here's Raymond Ibrahim, who I've quoted often, because he's very knowledgeable about Islam, well read, sane and sensible:
According to the ancient Islamic doctrine of al-wal’a wa al-bara’, or “loyalty and enmity”—which is well grounded in Islamic scriptures, well sponsored by Islamic authorities, and well manifested all throughout Islamic history and contemporary affairs—Muslims must hate and oppose everyone who is not Muslim, including family members.Koran 60:4 is the cornerstone verse of this doctrine and speaks for itself: “You [Muslims] have a good example in Abraham and those who followed him, for they said to their people, ‘We disown you and the idols which you worship besides Allah. We renounce you: enmity and hate shall reign between us until you believe in Allah alone’” (Koran 60:4, emphasis added).BTW: it's not a matter of translation. The online Koran I link to at the left has nine translations. ALL of them have the word "hate" in their translations.
There are many other verses in the Koran enjoining hatred of non-Muslims: 4:89, 4:144, 5:51, 5:54, 6:40, 9:23, and 60:1. This is, of course, why so many pious Muslims decide to strap on an explosive belt, or hire a van, and kill we infidels. (They kill Muslims too, but they're fine with that, because these murdered Muslims will be considered innocent, and so go straight to heaven and all those waiting virgins; nothing said for said for murdered Muslimas).
When will these "anti-hate" people get onto this? I'm not holding my breath. Though talking of breath, it's surely breathtaking, the extent of their hypocrisy.
