Waking Up about Islam

Following the success of Thilo Sarrazin’s book, Germany is waking up. This article from the German magazine Der Spiegel exhibits a bias against its subject all the way through, but the bias is so transparent that he still comes off well.

Riding the Wave of Islamophobia: The German Geert Wilders

In NR, Jonah Goldberg finally makes a point that has previously eluded mainstream commentators, that maybe the “peaceful Muslims” are insignificant:

Who Are the Real Hijackers of Islam?

He discusses the horrible story from Pakistan about how a relatively enlightened state governor was assassinated for suggesting that a Christian woman condemned to death for blasphemy on dubious evidence should be spared .

Here is more evidence, from The Guardian which cannot reasonably be accused of anti-Muslim bias, that the problem with Pakistan is Pakistanis, and the only reasonable policy for us is to back India to the hilt against Pakistan:

Mainstream Pakistan religious organisations applaud killing of Salmaan Taseer

A divided Pakistan buries Salmaan Taseer and a liberal dream

  1. The German guy is funny because this is how I started getting interested into social issues – I had a moment that simply triggered an overwhelming interest into this stuff. What’s funny is that neither this guy, nor Wilders will solve anything. I better convert to Islam if these two are the best that Europe can put forth as a defense. On the other hand, they are the type of people who can destroy the current paradigm, which is why they’re so hated.

    And yes, the hijackers of Islam are the ‘moderates’. I do have to admire Pakistanis for how they defend their culture. Too bad their culture is crap.

    Wilders and Stadkewitz are not the best that Europe can put forth, but they are necessary precursors. Younger and better right-wing politicians will come along, the current right-wing parties are establishing a base for them to work from by being moderate enough to get some political representation. Eventually people like Fjordman will be entering politics openly.

    I would not use the word “admire” — I respect the Pakistanis for how they defend their culture but I don’t admire them, in the same way I respect the vicious dog that lives down the street but don’t admire it.

    I wonder how this ties into low-IQ people outbreeding high-IQs.
