Phyllis Chesler reminds us again of the old equation:
Not all Muslims are Suicide Killers, but all Suicide Killers are Muslims.
And why is this so? Because their sacred texts tell them it is a good and holy thing to kill as many infidels as possible. Convert or die is the rule for the rest of us. May it be a choice you are never required to make.
In no other major organized religion is homicidal martyrdom encouraged as a worthy goal. Sure, there are lots of “turn the other cheek” aphorisms in other religions, but not the murderous hadiths that the front men will tell you aren’t operative anymore: “are you going to believe us or your lying eyes?” seems to be the basic challenge of the learnéd Muslim Brotherhood imams as we watch the blood pour or the bombs explode. Wherever Muslims gather in sufficient numbers and there are other belief systems in place, they’re required to
Challenge by word or scimitar.
The blood flows, the body parts fly.
Ask the poor souls of Mumbai…
So do we look at the evidence or at the propaganda? A lot, a whole lot, of leftist lemmings are prepared to deny what they see in favor of the pretty words which move them to feelings of peace, love, and understanding, etc., etc., ad nauseam, and away from feelings of fear. Better to believe that the vicious right wing extremists are spreading lies about the Religion of Peace than to ponder the safety of your next plane flight.
But maybe the tide is turning? Ms. Chesler says:
Earlier today, I was lying on my gynecologist’s table in a highly exposed position when suddenly she said: “You’re probably going to think this is very politically incorrect but isn’t it crazy not to profile? I mean, isn’t it clear who’s doing what?”
I immediately shot straight up and engaged this worthy liberal in a very politically incorrect conversation. (No, she had absolutely no idea what I’ve been writing about).
So: Some things are becoming clear and can no longer be denied. Not even by some liberals.
Jihadic terrorists tend to be Muslims. Atheists are not blowing themselves up nor are Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Ba’haii or Zoroastrians.
Not all Muslims are terrorists; but these days, all terrorists seem to be Muslims.
Terrorists and their handlers are not all motivated by poverty and suffering. Many are often wealthy and educated men.
Well, that liberal lie about poverty-stricken jihad has been floating around so long we’re not going to be able to retire it any time soon. Sure, there are many poor Muslims enduring horrible circumstances while their corrupt oligarchs live high on the

When your basic raison d’être is “Submission” then Islam and democracy may not mix well, despite our naïve wishes and hopes. Especially the cloud castles of our naïve and cynical State Department ‘crats.
What is especially galling is that the Left knows well that the perpetrators of September 11th were educated men. They weren’t poor. However, this truth is glossed over in favor of paranoid fantasies of “Bush did it”. Or “9/11 was an inside job”. Or, a particular paranoiac hatred that keeps floating up out of the cesspool, “it was the Jews”. Man if the Jews did even one percent of the fairy tales told about them, they’d rule the entire world…oops, I forgot: they do already. Never play paranoia with a paranoid; they’ll beat you to the loony bin every time and you’ll be the only one without a tinfoil hat for protection.
Ms. Chesler reminds us of just two educated Jihadi physicians lately in the news:
… Humam Khalil Abu Mulal al-Balawi, the Jordanian double agent who recently blew himself up along with seven American CIA operatives in Afghanistan, was a 32 year-old physician. A physician-not a madrassa trained slum dweller.
Our own homegrown jihadic terrorist, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, (a Palestinian-American), is also a physician, a psychiatrist in fact. He had money, independence, prestige. His massacre at Fort Hood was not motivated by illiteracy, poverty, or war-related trauma.
No, poverty is not the motivation for Jihad. Nor will a solid grounding in science and healing prevent you from jumping onto a table at an Army base and yelling “Allahu Akhbar!” as you murder your fellow soldiers in cold blood.
An arrogant sense of entitlement and superiority are certainly part of the characterological make-up of pathological haters like Drs. al-Balawi and Hasan, as is an exquisitely thin-skinned resentmant. But how can the Left know that when it has its hands firmly over its ears…
…or did have. Maybe Ms. Chesler’s gynecologist is a harbinger of things to come? Maybe you, too, will run into a situation that constitutes a teachable moment?
For those of you to whom this applies, better study up on the rule of abrogation in the Koran. You may need the information the next time your feet are in those stirrups for the hated Pap smear. Ugh.
However, if you get one liberal doc to actually consider the reality of political Islam, won’t that cold speculum have been worth it?
