Out of the Frying Pan, and Into the Fire (and the Pot Calling the Kettle Black)

At Jihad Watch, Spencer relays a report on a particular Shi'ite cleric (indeed, an ayatollah) named "Al-Baghdadi" (translation: the Muslim Fanatic of Baghdad) who among other Islamically fanatical things, spouts hateful and violent rhetoric against Iraqi Christians. 


In an interview last December 13 on Egyptian television Al Baghdadia, the Shiite ayatollah Ahmad Al Hassani Al Baghdadi issued a fatwa against Christians in Iraq. Labeling them as "polytheists" and "friends of the Zionists", the extremist leader stressed that they must choose "or Islam or death," while "their women and girls may legitimately be regarded wives of Muslims." 

One other sentence in the report cannot be emphasized enough:

...and today he lives in Syria, supporting the armed opposition. 

One more datum to add to the many data -- excellently amassed and tied together in one article by Diana West -- indicating that the Syrian opposition represents the "fire" in the proverbial dilemma of out of the frying pan, into the fire.

But of course the other West (not Diana, not Allen, but that greatest civilization in human history currently held in -- or, even worse, holding itself in -- pleasantly asinine and reckless thrall by its fashionable PC MC) sees no dilemma at all, because of its assumption that if Muslims are rebelling against a tyrant, they must be good and worthy of our support. 

This same stupidity becomes all the more galling when Jihad Watchers incomprehensibly apply it to "the Iranian People" who are magically endowed with an exemption from their 1300 years of solid enculturation in Islam -- a strange affliction I have termed the Persian flu (which, maddeningly, persists).

Not to mention hints here and there among some in the CJ (the Counter-Jihad, some day perhaps to become the AIM -- the Anti-Islam Movement) of this same delusion applied to the "Egyptian Opposition" -- a delusion which magically and suddenly forgets all the data proving that the solid majority of Egyptian Muslim people believe in, and support, Islamic fanaticism -- again, excellently skewered by Diana West, who also in another setting had to set three idiotic anti-jihad "conservatives" on a round-table panel on The Blaze TV straight on their addled admiration for those "courageous" Egyptian People (though they didn't seem to comprehend her solid and deft undressing of their moronic optimism; suggesting they too suffer from what could be termed the "Bush Phenomenon" -- which I felt necessary in that same context to reiterate not once, but twice).
