“Whenever I read Time or Newsweek or such magazines, I wash my hands afterward. But how to wash off the small but odious stain such reading leaves on the mind?”
Edward Abbey

I personally gave up on the liberal rags masquerading as America’s “news” magazines almost two decades ago, but during a recent visit to a book store I happened to glance over at the magazine rack and see the above lovely Newsweak cover. I thought it was a joke at first, but then had to check it out when I saw it really was legit.

With a churning stomach, I read through the article, another offensive, asinine, misbegotten, delusion liberal pipe dream, as one would expect from such a magazine. Radical Islamists exist, so we must just play nice with and make room for them. If we're nice to them, surely they will be nice to us. To me, this smacks of the clever policies Neville Chamberlain used in 1939 and the French used again in 1940 to crush the Nazi menace.

Sure, the author admits, occasionally some misguided Muslim fanatics may persecute, stone, mutilate, crucify, burn or blow up a few folks now and then. But hey, it's nothing personal, and no big deal. Unless you happen to be the one getting stoned, dismembered, blown up, etc.

According to the article, FIVE YEARS after the State Department and The Weekly Standard reported Muslim extremists running loose in the streets of Nigeria inflicting brutal Saria Law on their neighbors, the New York Times alertly sent a reporter to check it out. No doubt, this reporter stayed in a standard Nigerian hovel and spent her time wandering freely about the country talking to the man in the street without any government interference.

After this in-depth investigation, the NYT Bimbette proudly announced all was well, the Newsweak buffoon concluding the report as something along the lines of: “Like, sure, like maybe they are still stoning people to death in the streets or hacking off appendages or mutilating genitalia, but not all that often. Besides, in many cases Sharia Law punishments have been reduced to mere public floggings on appeal. No big deal."

The best way to buy the world a Coke and make it sing in three-part harmony, according to Newsweak, is to talk nice about the Islamic extremists who wish to kill us. We should: "use more 'nuanced, noncombative rhetoric' that avoids sweeping declarations like 'war on terror', 'global insurgency,' even 'the Muslim world.'"

Well, if we’re even going to surrender in the war of words, we might as well take a look at the words of the Muslim holy book, the Koran, the guiding light of the Religion of Peace, to see what our loving neighbors have in store for us infidels. This may come as a shock to many in sheepleland, but, as Rush likes to say, "Words Mean Things".

For instance, Qur'an 5:51 urges everyone to just get along when it says: "Believers, take not Jews or Christians for friends."

That's benign enough to start, but it goes above and beyond that. Qur'an 9:5: "Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, torture them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war."

Ishaq 3:15
"Driving before us infidels until we subdue them with a halter above their noses and a branding iron. We will drive them to the ends of the earth. We will pursue them on horse and on foot. We will never deviate from fighting in our cause. Any people that disobey Muhammad will pay for it. If you do not surrender to Islam, then you will live to regret it. You will be shamed in Hell, forced to wear a garment of molten pitch forever!"

Actually, we could go on like that for days. We can also find where the motivation to issue fatwas to kill writers like Salman Rushdie and Taslima Nasreen originated. The prophet Muhammed himself didn't like for word to get out about Islam or himself. And for good reason.

According to Prophet of Doom: "The five oldest and most trusted Islamic sources don't portray Muhammad as a great and godly man. They reveal that he was a thief, a liar, an assassin, a pedophile, a womanizer, a rapist, a mass murderer, a pirate, a warmonger, and a scheming and ruthless politician. It's hardly the character profile of a religious leader. Gandhi he was not."

Lacking any Danish cartoonists to kill back when the Koran was written, this is how the faithful followers of the Religion of Peace dealt with a Jewish poet who dared question the prophet during his time on earth: Ishaq: 368: "We carried his head back to Muhammad during the night, saluted the Prophet as he stood praying, and cast Ashraf's head before his feet. The Prophet praised Allah that the poet had been slain, and complimented us on the good work we had done in Allah's Cause. Our attack upon Allah's enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for his life."

Since words do indeed mean things, I won't leave you with the ramblings of Newsweak liberal hacks or deceased mad prophets. Instead, let's share a few words of wisdom from a very cagey old boy by the name of Winston Churchill.
"There is no greater mistake than to suppose that platitudes, smooth words, and timid policies offer a path to safety."
"An appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile hoping it will eat him last."
I wonder what Newsweak will taste like with a little Heitz 57 a few years down the road?
