For years we've been hearing about how the peaceful religion of Islam has been hijacked by extremists.I've explained in prior posts how non-Muslims living in Islamic countries are constantly under the threat of death by false accusations of "blashpheming" the blasphemy that is Islam. Bibi is just one of the most recent victims. Taseer was murdered because he put justice before Islam, to the applause of the Pakistani public at large. Taseer was a moderate in a religion that is anything but.
What if it's the other way around? Worse, what if the peaceful hijackers are losing their bid to take over the religion?
That certainly seems to be the case in Pakistan.
Salman Taseer, a popular Pakistani governor, was assassinated this week because he was critical of Pakistan's blasphemy law.
Specifically, Taseer was supportive of a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, who has been sentenced to death for "insulting Muhammad."
Bibi had offered some fellow farm laborers some water. They refused to drink it because Christian hands apparently make water unclean. An argument followed. She defended her faith, which they took as synonymous with attacking theirs. Later, she says, a mob of her accusers raped her.
Naturally, a Pakistani judge sentenced her to hang for blasphemy.
I hate Islam. It is 100% evil, irredeemably violent, intolerant, backwards, inhuman, ignorant and totally worthless. It's good to see that Jonah Goldberg is finally speaking the truth about this odious ideology: it is not a religion of peace and never was. It is a religion of continuous warfare on all mankind.
