Did you read this urgent post over at Atlas the day before yesterday? Commit it to memory: BLUEPRINT FOR US SURRENDER TO ISLAM: THE US MUSLIM ENGAGEMENT
Over at Family Security Matters:
Bat Ye'or said the following of the Alliance of Civilizations in a speech given at the Counter Jihad conference in Brussels in 2007: The Alliance of Civilizations, created to oppose the clash of civilizations, that is jihad, hasalso added pressure. On 13 November 2006, the High-Level Group of the Alliance ofCivilizations presented its report which sums up the request of the OIC at its Mecca Summit in 2005, after the Cartoons affair. First, it adopts the Islamic view of history and politics byclaiming that everything was fine between the three monotheistic religions until the 19thcentury, when the evil of European colonialism and Zionism destroyed this harmony. Then itaffirms that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the main source of Christian-Muslimantagonism, not the jihadist war and ideology that deny for others the right to exist. It proclaims that this conflict “remains one of the gravest threats to international stability” and formulates recommendations that again echo the OIC requests. Such views mirror Hitler accusing the Jews of fomenting World War II, or the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, praisedin the Hamas charter, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood which denies Israel’s right to exist.
The recent meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (and here)
(OSCE Conference on intolerance and discrimination against Muslims, Cordoba, 9-10
October 2007) is much of the same, a charter of dhimmitude. It examines the means to
condition Europeans to respect Muslim immigrants and accept their culture. Although racism
against Muslims as well as against any other should be punished, nowhere do we see in any of
these texts a genuine desire to understand the fears of Europeans aggressed in their own
country by local jihadist cells, their anger at the Muslim scriptures and history loaded with
anti-Jewish and anti-Christian stereotypes which they bring into Europe, the continual
incitement to hate and war against the infidels, particularly against Israel and America, the
inferiority of women and the legal oppression of non-Muslims. The accusations of
Islamophobia totally overlook these facts as if they emerge from a vacuum. The Eurabian
moral dishonesty that incriminates Israel’s self-defense in order to exist is now projected onto
Europe, guilty when protecting itself against Islamic terrorism. Our self-defense is considered
an aggression that victimizes Muslims. We are in fact in a logic of dhimmitude within Europe.
There's more - read Bat Ye'or's remarks here.
Back to FSM
The logic of dhimmitude.
- "engagement with groups that have clearly demonstrated a commitment to nonviolent participation in politics" (read: the Brotherhood);
- "not equat[ing] reform with secularism, nor...assum[ing] that reformers who advocate some form of Shariah as the basis for the rule of law will inevitably abuse human rights or adopt anti-American policies";
- "not supply[ing] additional ammunition to extremists by linking the term ‘Islam' or key tenets of the religion of Islam with the actions of extremist or terrorist groups";
- Launching "an education program comparable in scale" to "the more than $7 billion" invested in the "post-Sputnik U.S. commitment to math and science education" to "education on Islam and Muslims, sustained over a decade or more, focused on teacher training and curriculum in middle and high schools, and colleges."
Thereby killing any hope, any hope at all of real reform of Islam.
