Radical Islam, In Its Own Words

Victor Davis Hanson hits the proverbial nail right on the head in defining the implacable violent intent of Islamofascism through its leaders' own declarations.

“You will find that the Jews were behind all the civil strife in this world. The Jews are behind the suffering of the nations.”

When and where did that venom come from?

This last May — and out of the hateful mouth of a prominent Palestinian cleric, Sheik Ibrahim Mudeiris. He was broadcast on a Palestinian Authority station.

The televised Sheik finished with an even more frightening thought: “The day will come when everything will be relieved of the Jews — even the stones and trees which were harmed by them…The stones and trees will want the Muslims to finish off every Jew.”

Nothing could be clearer than that promise of another holocaust — and promised explicitly on state-run Palestinian television, a public megaphone of the Palestinian Authority, itself the beneficiary of past and apparently promised future American financial aid.


The entire column is, as always with Hanson, a good and worthwhile read.

Great post. Thanks Raven & Seth. There's nothing quite like hearing it from the horse's mouth.

What confuses me is that even after liberals see this kind of stuff, they shine it on because in their Utopian world, Islam is the Religion of Peace.Or something...
