Bob Beckel - The Plight Of The Typical Naive & Misinformed Liberal
In listening to the FoxNews program The Five, Bob Beckel who is the epitome of the naive and uninformed liberal, expressed shock that the Muslims killed innocent Christians and burned their Church. In his typical misinformed ranting Bob exclaims: Your Prophet does not want you to murder innocent people! Which provokes the intelligent mind to pose the question: If Bob Beckel's position is correct, then why do the Muslims kill not only Christians and Jews, but innocent people of all faiths and cultures? Are they disobeying their Prophet, as Bob proclaims?
When rightly understood, Bob's proclamation to the Muslim world is in fact completely opposite to the very source of Islam beliefs -- i.e., the Qur'an proclaims to the Muslim believers: "Slay them wherever you find them...Idolatry is worse than carnage...Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme." (Surah 2:190-) "Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it." (Surah 2:216) "Seek out your enemies relentlessly." (Surah 4:103-) "...make war on the leaders of unbelief...Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them..." (Surah 9:12-) "It is He who has sent forth His apostle with guidance and the true Faith [Islam] to make it triumphant over all religions, however much the idolaters [non-Muslims] may dislike it." (Surah 9:31-) "If you do not fight, He will punish you sternly, and replace you by other men." (Surah 9:37-).
In the article The Myth Of The Moderate Muslim, I raise the important questions that naive liberals such as Bob Beckel remain ignorant of: Is there such a thing as a moderate Muslim? Every Muslim -- even the most moderately sincere -- is carrying with him a ticking time-bomb that is an immanent danger to all non-Muslims. Why? Because the very Qur'an that the moderate Muslim shares with even his family and friends -- the book that they deem the holy words of their god -- calls for the death and destruction of all non-Muslims as the highest expression of the practice of Islam (see If You Repeat A Lie, Does It Become Truth?). And as long as political correctness permits the great Muslim lie to be perpetuated, then every Muslim is a potential ticking time-bomb. And with respect to telling a lie, unlike Jesus who commanded let your yes be yes, and your no be no -- the Qur'an deems it a good thing to lie to the non-believers in order to fool them.
