Voices from the Resistance

If the Pope, in an academic lecture at a university, cannot cite a medieval text without being burned in effigy, and his home threatened, there isn't much hope for dialogue. The violence of the fundamentalists just seems to prove the Byzantine emperor Manuel II right. -Elizabeth Lev

The oldest hatred didn't get that way without the ability to adapt. Jews are hated for what they are — so, at any moment in history, whatever they are is what they're hated for. For centuries in Europe, they were hated for being rootless-cosmopolitan types. Now there are no rootless European Jews to hate, so they're hated for being an illegitimate Middle Eastern nation-state. If the Zionist Entity were destroyed and the survivors forced to become perpetual cruise-line stewards plying the Caribbean, they'd be hated for that, too. Mark Steyn (quoted by Caoline Glick)

Finally, it is revealing how apathetic these so-called compassionate liberals--so many of whom will fight to the death to keep a Tookie Williams or Mumia Abu Jamal from being executed--are toward the shariah court system. If their only response to news of shariah-approved executions is "Michelle Malkin is a hypocrite," it is a damning indictment of how shallow their commitment to "social justice" really is.

Dear conundrum knitter,

Interesting blog ID.

I consider myself a member of the three Abrahamic faiths - my family is interfaith and interracial. I have read a number of your blog posts and I find them to be divisive, destructive and aimed at creating more hate and disunity between the people who believe in the One God.

You seem to be caught in that age-old mindset of 'we-them" and of course, the 'we' belongs to God's side and the 'them' belongs to Satan's.

Don't you remember what Jesus instructed us to do regarding our enemies?

Do we think that quoting extremists somehow justifies our moral superiority? That it gives us a license to kill and destroy them before they destroy us?

From what I can see, there is no need for the so-called "Islamists" to destroy us. We are doing it quite nicely by ourselves.

As Arnold Toynbee said, "Civilizations die from suicide, not by murder."

We need to wake up and see why each bomb we drop, each depleted uranium missile we fire, each cluster bomb that blows off children's arms - will come back some day to burn us and our children.

We need to speak out against torture, war crimes and the wholesale destruction of entire countries!

I pray that our country will regain its moral high ground, because if we don't, we are lost. Then we will face the Law of Divine Justice - because harming innocents brings grave grave consequences.
