The possible prosecution of the Secretary-General of Vox prompted this photo essay by Michael Copeland.
Vox and the Enemy
by Michael Copeland
Javier Ortega Smith, Secretary-General to Spain’s Vox party, could face prosecution for decrying what he called an “Islamist invasion” of Europe. This is what he said:
“Our common enemy, the enemy of Europe, the enemy of liberty, the enemy of progress, the enemy of democracy, the enemy of the family, the enemy of life, the enemy of the future is called the Islamist invasion.”
How does Islam present itself on some of these issues? As can be seen below, Javier Ortega-Smith simply confirms what Islamic spokesmen have themselves stated.
Muslims in the West must have an attitude of enmity and hatred of the kaffirs.
All of kuffaar are the enemies of the Muslims — islamqa.com
What does the Koran instruct?
- …between us and you enmity and hatred forever 60:4
- Allah is the ENEMY of the unbelievers 2:98.
- Allah does NOT love the unbelievers 30:45.
- Unbelievers are ENEMIES of Allah and they will roast in hell 41:14.
- The kuffar are for you a clear enemy 4:101
- Terrorize the enemy of Allah and your enemy 8:60
- KILL the unbelievers wherever you find them 9:5
The Koran forms part of Islamic law. One who denies any verse in the Koran is to be killed. This can be done vigilante-style by anyone. There is no penalty “since it is killing someone who deserves to die” (Manual of Islamic Law, “Reliance of the Traveller”, o8.4, o8.7(7)).
