Welcome Back Hosni (Part 2)

Back in June I predicted we would see a military coup in Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood members killed, Morsi who knows where, and Mubarak back in the reins.

The first 3 have happened, and now I just read in that Mubarak may be out of jail in less than a week.

Meanwhile the NYTimes is blaming Israel for wanting the Egyptian military back in charge, instead of Islamic radicals.

I find that amusing, because America should want it too - if they wanted a stable, functioning Egypt and to keep the peace treaty viable (which they are guarantors for).

But unfortunately, Obama seems to think the Muslim Brotherhood is the way to go, so he keeps betting on their apocalyptic horse, and if he can't get Islam in control over Egypt, well, then he'll try to bring them into power in Judea and Samaria by creating an opening for Hamas to take over there.

Anyway, the point of this post is simply to toot my own horn, and thank the blogger, Daled Amos, for reminding me of my Mubarak prediction.

Where are all the normal Muslims?

The following appeared yesterday on Farid Ghadry's blog in response to a Muslim attack on two British Jewish teens who were volunteering at a local school for Muslim children in Zanzibar.  Two Muslim men threw acid on the teens, leaving them permanently scarred and "burned beyond imagination.  Why aren't there more speaking up like Farid, a Syrian Muslim? With over a billion on the planet, there must be some to speak up like Farid.  

I indict Islam.

Yes, I indict it for ignoring the terror against two innocent British teens in Zanzibar who were doused with acid. I do not give a damn what the reasons were and what justification those bastard Islamists had to change permanently the good lives of two innocent young teens who were there to help Muslims in the first place.

What is Holy about Ramadan when the Muslim bastards in Zanzibar use it to commit the unholiest of acts?

I am really, really angry.

Where are our Muslim leaders to speak out against such terror and to commit, once and for all, to its eradication?

Where is the King of Saudi Arabia, or the President of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation? Cooperation on what? With the OIC’s silence, how could not anyone interpret “Cooperation” to mean to cooperate to disfigure the innocent?

Where is the Grand Imam of al-Azhar University, or the Arab League, or Ayatollah Khamenei, or the millions of other religious Muslim leaders?

Where is Erdogan of Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood? Why are they silent in the face of such atrocities committed in the name of Islam?

Where are all our collective Muslim voices to indict these senseless acts not even animals in a jungle are capable of?

Islam has become synonymous with terror and the target of justifiable and global contempt. The religion I was born into, and which shelters 1.3 billion people, has turned into a weapon of global destruction against the other 5.7 billion people who do not adhere to Muslim principles.

Islam no longer exists for Islam. Islam exists today to destroy non-Muslims.

I indict all of Islam because the religion that is supposed to support the needy and the helpless has become a cult of terror against the self-sufficient and the enterprising.

I indict all the silent Muslim leaders for their weakness. With their silence, they are feeding these acts of barbarism to define Islam.

I indict them for all the acts of terror committed in the past against thousands upon thousands of innocent people.

I am really, really angry at all the Imams, the Grand Muftis, the Sheikhs, the Mawlawis, the Ayatollahs, the Emirs, the Kings, the Princes, and whatever titles they embrace.

At the end, if they do not indict these acts publicly and courageousely all of them share in the savagery of Zanzibar. That is their legacy.

The Muslim leaders in the OIC and the Arab League must awaken from their slumber by committing serious funds to re-educate our youth and to rid the world of the cancer within, instead of remaining silent or accommodating the evil source of Islamic terror.

It is obvious political correctness and generous aid by the West is not making a difference.

In fact, Western countries have donated hundreds of billions of Dollars in foreign aid to Muslim countries, and we Muslims pay back the West by dousing their children, who came to help our poor and disfranchised, with acid. It is truly sickening.

Something must change. The West must change course to help us find our way, the hard way. This status quo cannot go on.

If you want to help Islam, then it is time to tie your help with what our leaders do or say, and not by how much intelligence they deliver.

Otherwise, stop buying our oil and gas. Let us perish in our own waste. Maybe, then, our leaders will speak out and cooperate with the West based on equality and not based on them forcing Islam upon the rest of the world.

Enough is enough. I am really, really angry.

May those British teens, and all who were injured by Islamic terror in the past, find peace and happiness. May they, and their families, forgive us for not speaking loudly enough.

What Unqualifies a Chief Rabbi?

I had a disturbing discussion with some Chareidi relatives the other day.

I innocently (sure) asked what they thought of the results of the vote for Chief Rabbi and of Rav Stav.

As I expected, as Chareidim, they were very happy with the results, and I wasn't taken aback by their vitriol of disgust towards Rabbi Stav, I expected that too. But what did surprise me was the example they used to vilify him.

The example they used to prove that Rav Stav was unqualified to be Chief Rabbi, is that he had at some point answered a question from a young man, a yeshiva student, who wanted to know what to do at the movies when they showed a bad scene.

The specific answer he gave is unimportant, nor did they bother to mention it.

The problem in their eyes, is that he answered a question like that at all.

You see, their argument was that the young man was obviously not a yeshiva student, or even religious, because religious people don't go to movies.

And someone who isn't religious (because he goes to movies), obviously doesn't care about Halacha (you're following the logic I presume), and therefore, any Rabbi who answers a question like that, can't represent Judaism or Rabbis - but, not because the only answer is, "Don't go to movies".

Here's the kicker.

They said that since Rav Stav was providing answers to religious questions to "non-religious" people, he clearly wasn't qualified to be chief rabbi, as the chief rabbi is only supposed to deal with religious issues for religious people, and non-religious people don't have religious issues, as they don't care about Halacha!

I asked them where they heard this insane argument they were making, that they apparently completely believed.

They all said they heard it on Radio Kol Chai (a Shas-controlled radio station), which is  apparently the only radio station a "religous" person is allowed to listen to.

To make a long story short, the argument they've been told to believe, by Shas controlled radio, is that only religious people have real religious questions, and rabbis should only provide answers to real religious questions to real religous people, and any rabbi that bothers to provide an answer to a religious question to a non-religious person is clearly not qualified to be a chief rabbi in Israel.

Is that messed up, or what?

I didn't bother to ask them the next question, because I already know the answer. But if you were to ask them if they'll eat food certified as kosher by our two new, chareidi chief rabbis, whom they're so happy with, the answer will be "no", because their certification isn't kosher (enough?).

It makes you wonder who exactly do they think a chief rabbi is supposed to be the chief rabbi of.
