The cartoon crisis

via Dr. Babu Suseelan published on February 18, 2006

Over the past few weeks, Muslim fundamentalists around the world have engaged in angry street protests, violence, looting, bombing and arson over a series of cartoons published in a Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten.


Radical Muslims have organized demonstrations around the world demanding an apology from the Danish government. Denmark’s Prime Minister defended the paper’s right to publish the cartoons on free-speech grounds.


In a show of solidarity with Jyllands-Posten, newspapers throughout Europe ran the cartoons. Jihadi Muslims began rioting, looting, bombing, burning buses and Embassies in Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Indonesia, India, Iran and Saudi Arabia. In Libya and Lebanon, radical Muslims torched Danish, Norwegian and Italian Consulates. Several people were killed in Libya. In India, a Muslim state Minister offered 10 million dollars for any one who can behead the cartoonist. In Hydrabad, India several Hindu temples were attached. In Iran, the fundamentalist Islamic government offered prizes for a cartoon contest for drawing anti-Jewish cartoons.


The cartoon crisis, most certainly is a small issue, which has been blown up by Jihadi Muslims.  As usual, the phony liberals and Communist Fascists have come up with some grotesque root cause theories of Islamist violence.


Their hidden agenda is to regulate freedom of expression and condone Jihadi carnage on the streets. Pseudo liberals and left over leftists who suffer from cognitive disorder should realize that civilized societies couldn’t function with phony, meaningless root cause theories.


To blame the cartoonist is to ignore the true nature of Islam and its fundamentalist ideology. The heart of the issue is the destructive, dysfunctional, dualistic, non-compromising belief system that binds Muslims around the world. Motivates and pre-planned crimes against free society is an outgrowth of the philosophy of intolerance, hostility and oppression inherent in Islamic dogma and the harsh teaching in the Quran. The terror tactics, intimidation, violence and street mayhem are not unprecedented in Islamic history. Beheading, torturing, kidnapping, hijacking, bombing, and violence are not alien to Jihadi Muslims. In Surah 2:191, Allah orders Muhammad to kill his opponents “Kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from wherever they drove you out….”. In Surah 9:29, Allah tells Muhammad to fight the people of the Book, “Fight those who do not believe in God and the last day…and fight people of the Book, who do not accept the religion of truth (Islam) until they pay tribute by hand, being inferior”.


The cartoon controversy is much more than freedom of speech. The violence perpetuated by radical Muslims is not for freedom of expression, democracy, religious rights or pluralism. Islam does not believe in freedom of expression or religious tolerance. Surah 3:85 states “If anyone defies a religion other than Islam, never will it be accepted of him, and in the hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost” The real issue is about fundamentalist Islam, the closed Arabic dogma disguised as religion.


Muslim fanatics whose ambition is to silence the free voice of non-believers deliberately created the cartoon crisis. The real issue is not the cartoons or the violent response by Islamists but the obscurantism of the Islamic fundamentalists.


Cartoon or no cartoon, Jihadis will manufacture reasons to wage Jihad war against non-believers.  The existence of Kaafirs (infidels) is enough cause for making Jihad war in Islamic countries. Muslim fanatics never wait for any cause. Any triumphed up cause is good enough to start a war against non-believers. There is nothing with in Islamic preaching that encourages peaceful resolution of controversial issues. There is nothing in Quranic teaching that endorse pluralism, democracy, human rights, and freedom of expression. Muslims are directed to adhere to the dictates of Islam wherever they are. The philosophical differences between democratic societies and Islam are the root cause of the current cartoon crisis and the subsequent violence. These perpetual, non-compromising doctrinal differences routinely incite Muslim fanatics to slaughter non-Muslims.


Muslims take advantage of freedom that accorded to them in democratic societies. They deny freedom for non-believers in their own countries. They exploit democracy, secularism, kindness, liberal law, human rights and compassion of free societies. Islam forbids assimilation with people of other creeds or civilization. But they are clever in exploiting freedom and democracy for their own advantages. Muslims have legal redress in democratic nations that they deny to non-believers. Life is a constant humiliation and hardship for non-Muslims in Islamic nations.


By promoting phony root cause theories of Jihadi terrorism, the pseudo liberals are not only promoting addictive thinking of fanatic Muslims but also creates barriers to their recovery from fundamentalism. Albert Einstein said, “The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it”. Although instant solutions to Jihadi terrorism and violence don’t exist, we can make gradual changes and develop solutions only when we overcome our denial.


The will to build a better future for our society depends on our ability to make changes in the minds of those who are absorbed in primitive fantasies world conquest. We should not bargain our future by submitting to the Islamic culture of narcissism. If our resistance to the utopian absolutism fails, there will be nothing in store for us to defend our freedom.
