We need many more like her

Dr. Wafa Sultan, that is. Speaking the truth to hundreds of millions of her co-religionists who simply do not want to hear it. And, who have responded in the only way that members of the “religion of peace” can: by death threats.

From a story in the New York Times, Dr. Sultan appears to have handed in her “I-Hate-the-Jews Club” lifetime membership that is otherwise de rigueur for orthodox muslims:

Speaking of the Holocaust, she said, “The Jews have come from the tragedy and forced the world to respect them, with their knowledge, not with their terror; with their work, not with their crying and yelling.”

She went on, “We have not seen a single Jew blow himself up in a German restaurant. We have not seen a single Jew destroy a church. We have not seen a single Jew protest by killing people.”

She concluded, “Only the Muslims defend their beliefs by burning down churches, killing people and destroying embassies. This path will not yield any results. The Muslims must ask themselves what they can do for humankind, before they demand that humankind respect them.”

My God. This woman seems to be…normal. And seems to be able to appreciate the difference between reality and Islamist nonsense.

It gets even worse, from an Islamist’s perspective. From a MEMRI transcript of an interview on Al-Jazeera, here’s an example of some truth-telling:

The Prophet of Islam said: ‘I was ordered to fight the people until they believe in Allah and His Messenger.’ When the Muslims divided the people into Muslims and non-Muslims, and called to fight the others until they believe in what they themselves believe, they started this clash, and began this war. In order to start this war, they must reexamine their Islamic books and curricula, which are full of calls for takfir and fighting the infidels.

“Death to infidels” might not have quite the same appeal to our ears as “Fight, fight, for old Notre Dame,” but it seems to get the job done. Said job being keeping the Islamic world mired in pre-modern fascism.

Dr. Sultan is a brave woman. Would that we, free people everywhere, had more like her.
