This Week's 'Salient' Op-Ed: Death to Islamofascism!

(Featured in this week's issue of the Victoria University student magazine, Salient)
We can be thankful in the wake of the botched bombings in Britain by Islamofascist filth that the filth on this occasion was as incompetent as it is evil. But new Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s response to the abortive atrocities was no cause for gratitude. Gormless Gordon instructed his Cabinet and staff that they were not to use the word “Muslim” in the same breath as “terrorist.” (Nor were they to use the phrase “War on Terror” ever again.) Don’t identify the religion of the Jihadists in case you offend the more passive adherents of that religion. The spirit of Neville Chamberlain lives.
Chamberlain, dear reader, for the benefit of the legion of state-worshipping, state-lobotomised airheads among you, was the British Prime Minister who appeased Hitler. The comparison is apposite. The forebears of today’s Islamofascists, such as Sayyid Qutb, were fanatically anti-Jewish; some, like Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al Banna were enthusiastic admirers of Mussolini and Hitler. All were hysterically puritanical and saw America as the Great Satan, repository of all evil. Qutb condemned American women as follows:
The American girl is well acquainted with her body's seductive capacity. She knows it lies in the face, and in expressive eyes, and thirsty lips. She knows seductiveness lies in the round breasts, the full buttocks, and in the shapely thighs, sleek legs — and she shows all this and does not hide it.
The black male fared no better:
Jazz is his preferred music, and it is created by Negroes to satisfy their love of noise and to whet their sexual desires ...
Islamofascists in our time, of course, killed Dutch moviemaker Theo van Gogh, for making a film about Islam’s oppression of women. They destroyed the Twin Towers because they don’t like … well, anything American. As bin Laden put it, his disciples love death as much as Americans love life. Now we are told these squalid savages, these bigoted barbarians, these hysterical humanity-haters, these tawdry terrorists, these god-ridden grotesqueries, these ignoble ignoramuses, these genocidal jihadists, are not to be called Muslims because other Muslims—who remain mute while deeds of unspeakable foulness are perpetrated in their name—might get offended! Well, tough turds. As Salman Rushdie has observed, freedom of speech is nothing without the freedom to offend.
Here in New Zealand, a convert to Islam tried to put a favourable gloss on the Islamofascist riots in the wake of Rushdie’s knighthood. Abdullah Drury, writing in the Dominion Post, said coverage of these riots was a media beat-up and the rioters were not representative of Islam. Who else apart from the coalition that dominates Pakistan’s parliament and the rioters in thrall to it, he demanded, had expressed “similar resolve” on the Rushdie knighthood? An obliging reader promptly identified five other international Muslim groups that had done so. Unfortunately he left the most relevant one out. I quote from the DomPost, June 23:
New Zealand Muslims have added their voices to worldwide anger at the British Government's decision to knight Salman Rushdie, author of The Satanic Verses. Federation of Islamic Association president Javed Khan said the organisation was saddened and extremely disappointed at the honour, saying Rushdie's book was blasphemous and had "inflicted emotional pain" on Muslims.
Is it conceivable that Abdullah Drury, a former secretary of the Canterbury Muslim Association, didn’t know about this when he wrote his article? (This is the same Abdullah Drury, incidentally, who once established his Islamofascist credentials by denouncing the presence of Chris Carter, whom he called a “raging homosexual,” in an Auckland mosque.)
Unfortunately, Islam—stinking, stupid Islam—is the world’s fastest-growing superstition, and its adherents are becoming emboldened everywhere. In Christchurch Muslim women have demanded separate, publicly funded swimming facilities. A Hawkes Bay Muslim couple tried to claim damages for pork in a vegetarian pizza they had ordered. NZ media who published the Danish cartoons were intimidated into abjectly apologising for doing so. The Islamofascists are trying it on. Certainly they haven’t yet plumbed the depths of demonstrators in London who exploited the freedom that living in the west affords them by brandishing placards shrieking “The hell with freedom,” “Behead those who insult Islam” and the like, but they will, soon enough. Their holy book, after all, enjoins them to “slay the infidel, wherever ye shall find him.”
Human beings worthy of the title must rise up worldwide and shout in irresistible unison: “Enough of this primordial primitivism! We who are civilised are revolted by it and shall rebuff it at every turn!” Muslims must discover rationality and decency; Westerners must rediscover them, and, as a matter of urgency, speak up for them!
All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for cowards to appease it. Islamofascism is the locus of evil in the contemporary world. Places like Number Ten Downing Street are evidently the locus of cowardice in the contemporary world. Well, I will say what the likes of Gormless Gordon are too cowardly to say:
“Death to Islamofascism!”
