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.
