Filed under: Islamism Middle East— Jason Hayes @ 5:39 pm
The folks at Memri have put together an impressive list of Arab and Muslim reactions to the Russian hostage taking. Many of these Muslims are taking the Chechen terrorists to task.
An article by Iraqi columnist Aziz al-Hajj pulls no punches in openly denouncing Islamist terrorism.
‘The Arabs and the Muslims Today Contribute Nothing to Civilization and Progress Except for Blood, Severed Heads, Scorched Bodies, and the Abduction and Murder of Children’
Iraqi columnist Aziz Al-Hajj wrote on the progressive Internet site www.elaph.com: “What kind of national cause is this that uses children like gasoline for igniting a total war of destruction in the name of national and religious liberty?… The Islamic-Arab terrorism has turned into the greatest danger in the world, and threatens civilization, security, and life everywhere. It is today the symbol of evil, religious fanaticism, and moral degradation, and it is the essence of political crime in today’s world … Islamic terrorism is the outcome of ‘moderate’ political Islam, as it is generally described. The latest proof of this is Sheikh [Yousef] Al-Qaradhawi’s religious legal ruling [ fatwa ] calling for the killing of all Americans in Iraq…
“The Arabs and the Muslims today contribute nothing to civilization and progress except for blood, severed heads, scorched bodies, and the abduction and murder of children. The Jihad for religion and Arab chivalry have turned into the art of exploding, booby-trapping, and spilling blood. What an innovation and what a social contribution the Arabs have made in the 21st century!!”
