A Little Something for Anthony Mijares To Think About
From the Fox News story on the Rutherford Reader:
Anthony Mijares, who complained to Kroger about the Reader in April, said he saw examples of hate speech in an April "Guest Column."
The column called Islam "evil" and called for an end to Muslim immigration.
"While I respect the works of moderate Muslims such as Irshad Manji ('Faith Without Fear') and Tarek Fatah ('Chasing A Mirage'), I wholeheartedly, unfortunately, must assert that the U.S. must halt all future Muslim immigration, until Muslims acquiesce to living within the legal structures of their host nations rather than striving to restructure nations under an evil, de-humanizing, backward and defiling 12th century ideology, even should this take the next 50 years," guest columnist Justin O. Smith wrote in the April 8-14 issue.
Mijares said the comment left him troubled.
"When The Rutherford Reader publishes the statement that Islam is evil, defiling and dehumanizing, all you have to do is substitute the word Judaism (in place of Islam) and you know what that kind of commentary is without question," Mijares told the Tennessean. "People would get it immediately. That is hate speech."
The joke is, the Koran DOES substitute "Judaism" for "Islam"... and say it is evil and worse...vows to exterminate every last Jew. That doesn't trouble Mister Mijares.
I would say this is an absolutely essential point in this case and in all mosque project affairs. Those who defend the mosque project always use bill of rights arguments. The mosque they defend will trample the bill of rights under the prostrate bodies of the faithful.
