On last thursday’s O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly had a profound discussion about the Fort Hood massacre with Bernie Goldberg, author of the new book, A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media. Goldberg is always superb and this time he narrowed in wisely on the pathologies that the Fort Hood massacre has exposed: the political correctness nurtured by the Left in our society and the disinclination of so-called “moderate” Muslims to stand up in mass numbers and denounce the likes of Nidal Malik Hasan.

In making his point, Goldberg shrewdly asked when we are going to see a Million Muslim March take place in Washington – in which a million Muslims gather to denounce terror and declare that what Nidal Malik Hasan did was un-Islamic.

Goldberg’s point is crucial, but we need to add to it. The key that is often missed in our nation’s discussion on Islamic terrorism is that this is not necessarily about Muslims themselves. As the scholar Robert Spencer has stressed over and over again, the problem is not Muslims, the problem is Islam – in the sense that the problem is what Islam teaches. So the crucial issue in all of this is not what this Muslim may think or that Muslim may think. It’s not about these empty arguments about whether the majority or minority of Muslims are peaceful or not.The issue is what Islamic theology mandates.

And so the crux of the issue is this: if Islam is really a Religion of Peace and if the majority of Muslims really do support peace and reject violence, then when are they going to rise up in majority numbers and denounce the teachings within Islam that inspire and sanction the terrorism that Islamic terrorists engage in? When will they renounce the verses and teachings that Islamic terrorists point to and quote in justifying and explaining their violence?

So here is an idea. Thank you Bernie Goldberg, there does need to be a Million Muslim March. And if Islam is a Religion of Peace, then in this Million Muslim March the million Muslims who gather can demonstrate it by categorically doing the following:

[1] Repudiate Sura 9:29 of the Qur’an, which commands Muslims to fight Jews and Christians (“the People of the Book”) until they “pay the jizya [a non-Muslim poll tax] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” The teaching is that, if they refuse to pay the jizya, Jews and Christians should be killed. Are Muslims ready to join the Million Muslim March and reject this as un-Islamic? Are they ready to completely negate Islamic law when it comes to the teaching of the necessity to subjugate Jews and Christians?

[2] Collectively agree that a woman has a right to engage in a love life she chooses without having to fear for her life. In other words, to accept that women have the right to self-determination, including in the sexual realm, and that their lives must not be at stake in this matter. This reality is in many respects, and on many realms, at the heart of our terror war, as jihad is very much inspired by the impulse to keep women enslaved under a system of gender apartheid. As Wafa Sultan, Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, Brigitte Gabriel, Phyllis Chesler and others can tell you, jihadists are infuriated by women’s freedom in the West and see this as a grave threat to their misogynistic systems of totalitarian Puritanism.

If Muslims at the Million Muslim March cannot agree on this principle of women having the right to be free, then they are in the end legitimizing violence against women and declaring Islamic ideology to be incompatible with the democratic system in which they live. And this reality, of course, explains why honor killings are perpetrated by Muslims throughout the world and why they are on a skyrocketing increase in America and in the West.

[3] Reject the Islamic doctrine on apostasy, which holds that a Muslim has to be killed if he changes his religion.

[4] Reject the Islamic doctrine that Muslims are obligated to turn the whole world into committed Muslims, by force and jihad if necessary. In other words, the Muslims who arrive at the Million Muslim March can prove their religion is one of peace by repudiating all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence that teach that it is part of the responsibility of the umma to subjugate the non-Muslim world through jihad.

[5] State that Christians and other non-Muslim religions can freely proselytize in a Muslim land or community and remain unharmed.

[6] Reject the Qur’an’s description of Jews being apes and pigs. (Suras 2: 62-65, 5:59-60, 7:166)

These are the first six ideas for the Million Muslim March. There are, of course, many more. Perhaps various scholars of Islam, like Robert Spencer, will be invited to contribute more ideas by the organizers of the Million Muslim March. But I have a feeling all of this will not happen, just as I have a feeling that the six suggestions I have made, and the facts that are contained within them, will not be ingredients for discussion in our media, especially among those who are vehemently denying that the Fort Hood massacre has anything to do with Islam, jihad or Islamic terror.

    Thanks Jamie. You “moderate” muslims better stand up and be counted because there are a lot of Americans that are about to get really pissed. I have no problem with other peoples or religions or culture as long as they live here peacefully and dont support the enemy, but there will be a tipping point where you will be lumped in with the extremists unless we hear from you. Fort Hood is what it is and we all know it, regardless of how hard our muslim run media trys to squelch it. Once that tipping point is reached it will not matter what the media, or government says, your out.

  • StephenDvd

    > the problem is not Muslims, the problem is Islam –
    > in the sense that the problem is what Islam teaches.

    Absolutely correct! In actual fact, the grassroots adherants to any ideology or creed — the general populace, are mostly interested in living peaceful, prosperous and uneventful lives. The average person, indeed, has no desire to participate in violent acts.

    However, keep in mind this same principal applies to adherants of any creed — including communism and fascism/nazism.

    Its likely that the average nazi in WWII and/or communist during the cold war had no interest in >>personally<< being involved in violence. That is why so many, even party members, looked the other way to atrocities their leadership was committing.

    But the question really isn't a matter of whether the average “majority” adherant to an ideology wants to participate in violence. The average person is not a foot soldier!

    The question is whether or not the ideology/creed they belong to does indeed support violence against “outsiders”. And in the case of communism, nazism, and
    Islam, the ideology does indeed support violence.

    So the statement that “the problem is not Muslims” is moot. If anyone adheres to a violent ideology, they are culpable, whether they pull a trigger/explode a bomb or not.

    The fact that the “majority” so-called “moderate” Muslims refuse to denounce these violent teachings is proof that they aren't really so moderate, and do not really reject the teachings.

    Instead of performing a “house-cleaning” and reforming their religions, these so-called “moderates” lie to the world and pretend the violence has nothing to do with Islam.

    Instead taking ownership of the problem, they point the accusing finger elsewhere and immediately whine about non-existant “backlash.” And with the media and government enabling them in this dysfunctional behavior, no reform can ever be expected!

  • Jaladhi

    The problem is there are no so called”moderate Muslims” in this world who could then stand up to the Muslim terrorists, extremists or whatever you want to call them. So the question of million Muslim march to denounce the extremist passages of Quran does not arise. As youk now very well allah himself spoke through Quran and no Muslim dare think of modifying, deleting any word of it. Hence the wishful thinking of non-Muslims of any reformation in Islam does not arise and only a wishful thinking. It will never ever happen!!!

    8. No Muslims from terror-linked mosques can attend
    9. No Muslims who approve of any aspect of sharia law can attend
    (so at this point you will be lucky to get 100,000)
    10. Muslims must agree to freedom of speech & denounce all blasphemy laws
    11. Muslims must define the term “innocent”
    12. Muslims must repudiate the concept of taqiyya

    and the list goes on, and on, and on, and on…

    It will never happen and the march will be for jihad not freedom

  • USMCSniper

    The original million man march for blacks has no credibility and did nothing. Its originator, Minister Farrakhan, a Black Muslim, said in Charlotte, N.C., that he was aware of the fact that during Katrina, the levee in New Orleans was sabotaged in an effort to eradicate black neighborhoods in favor of saving white ones, the eradicators presumably being white folk. This statement represents deep-seated racism. Unless he was residing under a rock somewhere, Minister Farrakhan should have noticed that the people dodging power lines, trees, and buildings as they hung from helicopters to save black folk (some 10,000 of them) happened to be white folk. The Koran, apparently his holy scripture, has as one of its main requirements of Muslim adherents the killing of infidels whenever possible, infidels being all people who are not Muslims.

    The people who are saving Muslims from Islamic terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan were non Muslims, mostly white as well.

    For the survival of America, Canada, Australia, Israel and other Western nations, it is urgent that we examine the results of massive Muslim immigration into Europe and the UK. In Europe, UK, Israel and India there are many no-go Muslim areas where it is too dangerous for non-Muslims to enter.

    Good bye France… letting Muslims over take you once again… but without Charles Martel this time.

    Fitzgerald: Douce France

    For a jihad is what — it is increasingly clear — France now faces…

    Yes, you do notice more and more Muslims about you as you walk, no longer in the banlieues, but in the center of Paris, or Toulouse, or Lyon. And you remember how uneasy you felt, four years ago, when you happened to be walking on the Cannebière in Marseille. You decided, then and there, that you would not return. And you have friends who live in the south. And they tell you that the beurs – some call them maghrébins — make life hell for everyone.

    They attack French children on the way to school. They vandalize cars. They threaten, and do more than threaten, anyone who is still foolish enough to walk out wearing a kippah or a cross. Whole areas of cities in the south, as in the north, and east, and west, have become off-limits to non-Muslims. In the schools, the teachers have lost authority. They cannot even cover the subjects of World War II, the Resistance, and the murders of the Jews as the state prescribes; they fear, with reason, the violent reaction of the Muslim students.

    And as the schools become more and more dangerous for non-Muslim students and teachers, with more time and resources devoted to discipline rather than to learning, French parents and would-be parents are now silently factoring into their childbearing plans…those French people will plan on smaller families.

    And they will also be factoring in the growing cost, paid by them, those French taxpayers, for the whole expanding edifice of security, the guards in the schools, the guards at the train stations and métro stations and airports and at government buildings everywhere, the costs of keeping the gravestones from being vandalized, the costs of protecting the synagogues and the churches, the costs for all those tapped phones and agents in mosques, and subsidies to lawyers and judges to hear charges and try cases against Muslims, and the costs of monitoring da'wa in the prisons (more than 50% Muslim).

    But the Muslims are indifferent to expenses incurred by the French state. France is part of the world; the world belongs to Allah, and to his Believers. That doctrine has remained immutable for 1400 years. Imam Bouziane, the one they keep trying to deport, had 16 children by two wives, all living on the French state: a representative Muslim man.

    You vacation in Normandy, or Brittany, or the Ile de Ré. And you do not take the metro often enough, or walk in the right districts, or work in the right factories or offices, to understand what tens of millions of your fellow Frenchmen now have to endure.

    No one will mention what is happening or what kinds of things we must begin to think about doing to save ourselves…something has gone irreparably wrong with your country, and you, and your children, are in danger of losing that country, down to every village and house…France will have a majority Muslim population.

    Unless the Muslim immigration-invasion is stopped, France's agony is the future for America and all Western nations. Future generations will NEVER forgive us.

    It's WAR against all non-Muslims. A war that has lasted for centuries. Europe's response to war? There is no response. Only acceptance and submission to Islam. Whilst Muslims openly declare their goal is conquest:

    An authoritative Muslim stated: “Thanks to your democratic laws we will invade you; thanks to our religious laws we will dominate you.” http://www.meforum.org/article/448

    “Soon we will take power in this country. Those who criticize us now, will regret it. They will have to serve us. Prepare, for the hour is near.”
    — Belgium-based imam, “De Morgen”, Oct. 5, 1994. Cited in Koenraad Elst, “The Rushdie Rules”, Middle East Quarterly, June 1998.

    In Britain, Sheikh Bakri: “We will use your democracy to destroy your democracy.”

    Leaflets were distributed in major British cities which included slogans such as: “The final hour will not come until the Muslims kill the Jews.”

    Britain's response? “police appeared reluctant to prosecute because the calls to fight the Jews were carefully couched in quotes from the Koran.”
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1370900/

    Does Britain believe it's acceptable to call for the RELIGIOUS MURDER of Jews and other innocents because it's in the Koran? In a frightening violation of the Peoples' right to protection, the UK showed respect for the public call to murder non-Muslims because it's in the Koran!

  • charleskrieger

    I believe that it was Charles Krauthammer who said shortly after 9/11 that if it had been Christian terrorists who had killed thousands of Arabs by slamming 4 jumbo jets into Arabic/Islamic sites such as Riyad or Tripoli or Cairo there would have been millions or tens of millions of Christians on the streets across the world denouncing sucha heinous act in the name of Christianity. This response would have been instantaneous. It has been over 8 years and there still has been not mass march anywhere on Earth to show that the Muslims are actually interested in peace.

  • PRCS

    1. The problem is not Muslims, the problem is Islam…as it's written and as it will always remain. The clever bastards who wrote the Qur'an made an Islamic reformation impossible–and blasphemous.

    2. In that sense, the problem is what Islam teaches

    Which should make it clear to those at this website, that the phrase 'radical Islam' is moronic and should be forever discarded. How many Americans have been completely mislead by that phrase to believe that 'radical Muslims' are operating outside Islam's legitimate teachings–you know, the 'religion of peace' nonsense.

    And with the recognition (finally) that the problem is Islam…as it's written…it should now be quite clear to those who post here why 'moderate Muslims' cannot and will not renounce/denounce those Islamic tenets that make it antithetical to democracy and incompatible with the U.S. Constitution

    They can't and won't because they know what Islam really teaches and the consequences of the blasphemy.

    Ever read about American Muslims getting up and leaving a Friday hate sermon? I haven't.

    And the only Million Muslim march we're going to see will be like the picture at the top of this article.

    Reform of ISlam is possible ONLY if the politicians stop talking to fake “moderates”!

    http://www.spectator.co.uk/melaniephillips/5487

    If the years since 9/11 had been spent giving REAL moderate Muslims a voice, and protection, things today would be different, and calling Islamists “misunderstanders” of Islam might actually be a tactic that would work to isolate them.

    Too bad that the only voice the Feds and the media listened to was CAIR.

  • antioli

    Disinclination of Moderate Muslims to march against the Jihadists. How many American Citizens ever take the trouble to assemble against Jihadists' injustices. Some but not many.
    Wilders is mobed and kept from speaking.And how many Americans showed up to Back Wilders or Gilchrest or Ramos and Compean. A few but not many.
    There are Muslims who came here to get away from the Jihadis .But they still fear them. If you want them to march then be willing to march with them.
    Remember the Jihadis Kill; the Moderates do not.
    There are loyal Muslims acting as spies for the US .
    They exist.
    The Hillil foundation does not seem inclined to support campus Jews who speak out against Jihadi harrasment.

  • alexwalderstein

    Many travel agents in Australia have now been warning their clients for some time not to bother travelling to Holland, parts of France etc due to the landscape/streetscape not being what it used to be. So instead of spending 5 days in Paris just do the Champs, Versailles, Effeil tower, Louvre and then get out within 2-3 days. These agents now promote cruises (on the high seas no Islamists execpt off Somalia), eco-tourism and Asian travel instead. Agents get too much poor feedback when landing in Charles Degaulle, Heathrow etc and comment that it was like landing in Uganda or Tripoli, not what tourists expect.

  • PRCS

    My friend,

    Moderate Muslims are like Catholics who use artificial birth control methods.

    Neither is in full compliance with the tenets of their respective belief systems.

    Moderate Muslims have had eight years to step up to the plate. They don't because they, too, are part of the Ummah, and their personal copies of the Qur'an read just like Usama bin Laden's copy.

    Moderate Muslims may not ever amputate a thief's hands, but their Qur'ans do demand it (5:38).

    And we have no reliable way of knowing when a moderate Muslim will become a literalist.

  • PRCS

    There are Muslims who came here to get away from the Jihadis.

    But they brought Islam–a complete way of life that institutionalizes the inequality of Muslims vs unbelievers and a religious legal system that makes Islam incompatible with the U.S. Constitution–with them.

    And approximately 6% of them believe that suicide bombings can be justified in defense off Islam.

    I just don't have any sympathy for them.

    How could anyone possibly think that a so called Religion, started by a pedophile that convinced himself it was appropriate for him to have sex with his own son's wife, and on and on and on is any barometer of acceptable values?

  • myx0mop

    Dream on, Jamie… Let's keep engaging in useless rhetoric that leads nowhere. Maybe we need to stop asking the rhetorical questions, drop the political correctness and start insisting on the fact that Islam itself is a militant, fascist movement, and its goals are tangibly political. Islam operates by subverting the host country by terror, both violent and psychological, in order to eventually turn in into Dar Al Islam (the House Of Islam). Islam is the enemy, and it is dangerous on many levels. Jihad will not eventually dissipate, but will only get stronger with time. It cannot be wished away. We need to stop playing games, and start fighting back..
