Very rarely, If Ever, Have i heard Muslims condemn the actions of terrorists, Racist textbooks in Islamic schools
, The mistreatment of women and the evil spouted by Islamic clerics. Instead what they tend to do, Especially online where anonymity affords them with protection, Is try to brush the hatred perpetuated by Islamic leaders under the carpet by bringing up Zionism, Islamophobia and the IDF.
Given the lack of vocal condemnation from so called "moderate muslims" is it safe to assume that most of them don't actually oppose what these people are doing in the name of Islam? And is it also safe to assume that they actually support it? After all, Justification can
be found in the Koran for every evil done in the name of Islam. Justification can
be found in the Koran for teaching children that Jews are monkeys. Justification can
be found in the Koran for mistreating women.
Muslims in general are very quick to protest FITNA
and Theo Van Gough's film submission
, So where is their criticism of the actions, Actions done in the name of their religion, Which are the cause and subject of these films? If the films don't represent Islam why aren't they protesting against people doing things in the name of their religion which make films like these possible?
To me the answer is simple. They criticise the films and not the subjects of the films because the films do reflect Islam accurately and the people spouting hatred in the name of Islam do reflect Islam accurately. Even a passing acquaintance with the Koran exposes it as a racist, hate filled, Sexist and violent piece of literature where death is prescribed as punishment for even the most trivial crimes and women are seen as property equal to livestock.
