Fatwah Issued Against Blogger

Now I wouldn't do what these guys did. I don't find it productive. At the same time, I don't see any great need for anyone to give much respect to a book that is used to justify jihadi terrorism, any more than I believe we should give much respect to a book promoting another vile ideology. But hey, this is America. If flag burning is legitimate political speech, so is shooting up a copy or three of the Koran.

That said, I don't think Chris over at AnarchAngel should have been surprised to get some negative reaction to this event. He admits as much, and says he is even surprised to have gotten so little negative reaction.

But this shows the fundamental difference between the culture of freedom that is part and parcel of Western Civilization and the hate-filled, anti-freedom system that the Islamist jihadi swine would impose on us through their acts of terror. A fatwah has been issued against Chris and his family.

A Fatwah has been issued against me by a known terror group. Corresponding groups have responded indicating that I will be eliminated shortly.

They have my name, address, telephone numbers, and the names and addresses of my friends and loved ones.

The FBI has been unable to tell me of any actionable threat, however they beleive that the threat is real. They have warned me to take the standard anti-terrorist precautions, suitable for Bogota or South Africa not Phoenix.

They are also contacting the people on the list that was distributed, including my mother, my stepfather and step siblings, and the people who worked on Team Infidel with me.

The thousands of hits I've been recieving from the JP domains with blocked referred information are anonymizer proxies used to hide the identities of those viewing my site.

As my resume is public information, my employers or former employers may also be targeted.

There is concern that staff at my former employers has fed them my personal and private information as well.

The FBI agents I spoke with clearly indicated that althoguh they had nothing direct or specific to an individual (and thus couldnt justify protective custody), they are very seriously concerned about this threat.

Hang in, Chris. We stand with you.

And to all you Islamist jihadi swine -- you will not silence us all. If you go after us for speaking out against you, we will continue to speak. You cannot get us all. But we can make sure that there is not one of your kind befouling the shores of the USA or any other part of the Western world if you continue to attack us -- and that it will be 25,000 years before Mecca, Medina, or any other Islamist "holy city" can be approached without degrading your DNA even further.

And remember -- we did not choose this battle, jihadis; you did. It ends with your capitulation or your death, and at this point I don't particularly care which.

As for all the non-jihadi Muslims out there -- we await your loud and outspoken unambiguous condemnation of this threat of murder in the name of your religion.

Comments on Fatwah Issued Against Blogger

Greg, there is absolutely nothing on your blog that I can see condemning the massacre of 8000+ unarmed Bosnian Muslims in the name of Christianity. Where is your loud, outspoken, unambiguous condemnation of this set of 8000+ actual murders?

While you're at it, why don't you list every other crime being perpetuated or planned by Christians, and condemn them for it? And while you're at it, you can apologize for the Moonies, that nutty Mormon guy in Texas, the decades of child sexual abuse disproportionately committed by Christian leaders, and that crazy man down by the 7-11 who's peeing on the sidewalk?

Yet another blogging loser, commanding the world from his laz-e-boy...

Incidentally, only a properly trained legal scholar can issue a fatwah [ruling], and even then it only applies within a particular jurisdiction. A terrorist can't issue a real fatwah, anymore than you as a non-judge, non-lawyer can issue a Supreme Court ruling.

The world 'fatwah' here is just being used to add a scary boogie-man quality to what are really the rantings of a crazy man, someone (if he exists) is even more unhinged than yourself.

Incidentally, this is a good time to point out that our Western legal system, which I quite admire (being a trained lawyer here myself) heavily borrowed from Islamic legal concepts, in terms of hermeneutics, evidentiary rules, interpretive styles, major principles. Before European contact with Muslim law (which has always had 'rule of law' and 'reasonable doubt', Christian law had a lot of less-than-sophisticated measures like trial-by-water, trial-by-fire, burning-at-the-stake, and (yes!) decapitated-head-on-a-stick. The American legal system: a fine example of our Judeo-Christian-Islamic civilization.

Oh bullshit.

And may i point out to you that it is the Christian West that intervened to stop the Abuse of Muslims in Bosnia, and that it is the Christian West that is instrumental in having those responsible tried and punished. And that, you see, is the big difference -- since thee is really very little being done by the bulk of hte world's Muslims to stop the terrorists among them.

And i cannot help but note that you offer not one word of condemnation of the threats made against this man and his family.

I guess that is one more example of where you stand on the issue of Western Civilization vs Islamist Barbarism.

And they whine about people destroying the koran as way to express anger? They are truly....weak.

Oh, he's a "trained" lawyer? What? As a defender? Of course, who would've thunk it?

Just great. More Hand Wringers of America.

No, it's the post-Christian West which is running the tribunals. Don't forget, I'm 100% Western and I'm not Christian (though I revere Jesus and his true teachings.)

One of the fundamental propositiions in Western law (and Islamic law too) is that individuals are not responsible for the crimes of other individuals, even if they happen to share some qualities. There is no obligation to condemn every lunatic who happens to have a few demographic qualities in common with me; there is only an obligation not to aid and abet. Your mentality is tribal, simplistically dividing the situation into us and them, then demanding condemnation from all those that superficially share the same religion as whatever random criminal you've decided to focus on. Absolutely primitive, dark-ages stuff. It's this same sort of thinking which led to the Holocaust-- blaming all Jews for not condemning what may have happened to Jesus.

If you're going to do this, then at least you should first atone for all the sins committed by Christians-- I noticed you avoided condemning the Serb chetnik behaviour, which was explicitly committed in the name of Jesus Christ. Once you're done with then, you should track down some Native Americans and condemn what your ancestors did to them-- they're still suffereing today.

Acrobat, be glad that there are actual men who know and see reality so that you have not already been slaughtered for not being muslim. Keep denying the truth while they cut your head from your neck as well.

And I cannot help but note that he STILL has not condemned the threat made agains Chris.

|| Posted by Rhymes With Right, July 18, 2005 08:53 PM ||

Probably because he/she feels the justification is there to kill Chris because he burned a few Korans.
