Dennis Prager’s recent column discussed a Muslim woman in Winooski, Vermont whose complaint over the “offensive” use of the word bacon in an advertisement led to the restaurant taking down the ad. Pointing out that religious Jews who do not eat pork have never even considered advertising bacon as offensive, Prager wrote:
The woman who wrote this totalitarian drivel is the worst combination of fake victimhood, political correctness (which itself is a PC euphemism for “that which offends the left”), and Muslims who seek to impose sharia law on non-Muslims….
Would that the intolerance end there, perhaps I would feel safe with all of the hijabs that are appearing across America. But this summer we were treated to ugly pro-Hamas protests across the country. From San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle to Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, Muslims screamed “Death to Israel,” called for a third intifada, chanted “Jews go back to the ovens,” and compared Israel to Nazis. And two weeks ago on NYC’s Upper East Side, people in cars flying Palestinian flags yelling anti-Jewish statements attacked a Jewish couple.
Perhaps the upcoming Muslim Day Parade will afford an opportunity for the PC leftists to open their eyes. At the 2012 parade a flyer was distributed proclaiming that “Islam is the future of America, and depicting the White House with the black flag flying over it.”
[A] Brooklyn-based imam called for global laws against “insulting” Islam. Speakers urged sharia for the United States. The imam called out “Takbir!”, which means “expand”; in other words, expand the “house of Islam” (Dar al-Islam) against the “house of war” (Dar al-Harb). At one point, the crowd shouted “Allahu akbar!” while people raised their right hands in fascist-style salutes.
In 2013, the black flag of jihad and white flags signaling the caliphate adorned the entire parade. Perhaps ISIS members will be permitted to march this year.
Across Europe, Muslim violence has been lethal. In addition to taking to the streets in Paris, burning buildings and cars, and throwing Molotov cocktails, Muslims murdered Jews in Brussels and pro-Palestinian protests turned ugly in cities from Frankfurt to London.
