For Islamists in the West On Gay Marriage Silence is Golden for Now

One of the things I’ve writ­ten about in the past is the will­ing­ness of the left to ignore Islam’s posi­tions on Homo­sex­u­al­ity and Gay Mar­riage, appar­ently a big part of it, at least in Aus­tralia is tac­ti­cal:

Last night on ABC’s The Drum, Ali Kadri, spokesman for the Islamic Coun­cil of Queens­land and the Aus­tralian Fed­er­a­tion of Islamic Coun­cils, said his com­mu­nity was stuck with the choice of offend­ing allies or sid­ing with crit­ics, and the result had been silence.

Unfor­tu­nately, in the cur­rent cli­mate, the right and con­ser­v­a­tive side has attacked Mus­lims as ter­ror­ists and extrem­ists, and nat­u­rally the left side has been allies in defend­ing us for a long period of time,” he said.

We are afraid if we come out with our opin­ion then the left may aban­don us for going against their view and we can’t be friendly with the con­ser­v­a­tives because they have been bash­ing us for 15, 20 years every chance they get … and that includes some Chris­t­ian sects as well.”

Or to rephrase, we don’t want to do any­thing to make the use­ful idiots any less useful.

Pam Geller phrases it bluntly

They under­stand the war bet­ter than the kufar. The left has been doing their dirty work for well over a decade now. Why agi­tate the agi­ta­tors and knaves doing the heavy lift­ing in the spread of Islam and sharia? When the time comes, the left will be dealt with in much the same man­ner as the rest of the unbelievers.

They don’t only under­stand the war, they under­stand that the Com­mon Thread of the Left is hatred of Chris­tian­ity and any kind of alliance with devout Chris­tians in Aus­tralia or any­where else will out­rage the left more than any amount of ser­mons against Homo­sex­u­al­ity or gays thrown off roofs. I think Robert Spencer has this nailed:

Mus­lims who are con­cerned about their oppo­si­tion to homo­sex­u­al­ity caus­ing them to risk los­ing the sup­port from “the left side” may have noth­ing to worry about, if the Pride Parade in Van­cou­ver is any indi­ca­tion of where the loy­al­ties of the “left side” lie. The absur­dity of a gay Mus­lim being rejected for oppos­ing the human rights abuses jus­ti­fied by Sharia is aston­ish­ing. Oppos­ing gays will likely be tol­er­ated by “the left side.” As a result of the aggres­sive “Islam­o­pho­bia” cam­paign, the only reli­gion that can­not and must not be chal­lenged, no mat­ter what, is Islam, even when that chal­lenge is com­ing from pro­gres­sive Mus­lims. Last year, Face­book banned a gay mag­a­zine crit­i­cal of Islam.

His piece on the pride parade in Van­cou­ver WA speaks vol­umes.

One of the things I’ve written about in the past is the willingness of the left to ignore Islam’s positions on Homosexuality and Gay Marriage, apparently a big part of it, at least in Australia is tactical:

Last night on ABC’s The Drum, Ali Kadri, spokesman for the Islamic Council of Queensland and the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, said his community was stuck with the choice of offending allies or siding with critics, and the result had been silence.

“Unfortunately, in the current climate, the right and conservative side has attacked Muslims as terrorists and extremists, and naturally the left side has been allies in defending us for a long period of time,” he said.

“We are afraid if we come out with our opinion then the left may abandon us for going against their view and we can’t be friendly with the conservatives because they have been bashing us for 15, 20 years every chance they get … and that includes some Christian sects as well.”

Or to rephrase, we don’t want to do anything to make the useful idiots any less useful.

Pam Geller phrases it bluntly

They understand the war better than the kufar. The left has been doing their dirty work for well over a decade now. Why agitate the agitators and knaves doing the heavy lifting in the spread of Islam and sharia? When the time comes, the left will be dealt with in much the same manner as the rest of the unbelievers.

They don’t only understand the war, they understand that the Common Thread of the Left is hatred of Christianity and any kind of alliance with devout Christians in Australia or anywhere else will outrage the left more than any amount of sermons against Homosexuality or gays thrown off roofs. I think Robert Spencer has this nailed:

Muslims who are concerned about their opposition to homosexuality causing them to risk losing the support from “the left side” may have nothing to worry about, if the Pride Parade in Vancouver is any indication of where the loyalties of the “left side” lie. The absurdity of a gay Muslim being rejected for opposing the human rights abuses justified by Sharia is astonishing. Opposing gays will likely be tolerated by “the left side.” As a result of the aggressive “Islamophobia” campaign, the only religion that cannot and must not be challenged, no matter what, is Islam, even when that challenge is coming from progressive Muslims. Last year, Facebook banned a gay magazine critical of Islam.

His piece on the pride parade in Vancouver WA speaks volumes.
