Hitchens on the Ground Zero mosque (again)

Published in today’s National Post is Christopher Hitchens latest Slate column about the Ground Zero mosque project. Once he’s finished distancing himself from his intellectual inferiors’ “crass” objections (see also his earlier column) to the GZ mosque the Hitch gets down to raising some good reasons for suspicion about the true motives of the Imam behind the project:

From the beginning ... I pointed out that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf was no great bargain and that his Cordoba Initiative was full of euphemisms about Islamic jihad and Islamic theocracy.
The more one reads through his statements, the more alarming it gets. For example, ... Regarding President Obama, he advised that:
He should say his administration respects many of the guiding principles of the 1979 [Iranian] revolution ... a just government, based on the idea of Vilayet-i-faquih, that establishes the rule of law.
Coyly untranslated here (perhaps for "outreach" purposes), Vilayet-i-faquih is the special term promulgated by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini to describe the idea that all of Iranian society is under the permanent stewardship (sometimes rendered as guardianship) of the mullahs.
... I do not find myself reassured by the fact that Imam Rauf publicly endorses the most extreme and repressive version of Muslim theocracy.
Another feature of my local mosque that I don't entirely like is the display of flags outside, purportedly showing all those nations that are already Muslim. ... So, before he is used by our State Department on any more goodwill missions overseas, I would like to see Imam Rauf asked a few searching questions about his support for clerical dictatorship in, just for now, Iran. ...
Good stuff, but the smug Hitchens needs to be reminded that if others hadn’t registered their legitimate outrage (some of it perhaps a mite over the top but most not and a lot of it asking the same kinds of questions he does) about the GZ mosque project no one would be talking about it at all - it would be a done deal, and Islamists around the globe would be smiling at their soon-to-be newly planted victory monument.

Child rape, torture and murder cover-up...

Next week is the sixth anniversary of the Islamic child-rape and torture orgy and massacre in the school at Beslan . Yet for six years the mainstream media have covered up who was responsible, with all mention of Muslims being censored.
This is of particular concern because there is evidence that jihadists are planning similar attacks against American schools.

So it's time to set the record straight, not only about the identity of these sadistic murderous savages, but also about the Islamic ideology that approves of pedophilic attacks on children as a way of getting at their 'najis kafir' parents. (All non-Muslims are 'najis' - literally 'filth'.)

Of course every culture produces rapists and child molesters, but in non-Muslim societies these are usually isolated loners. In contrast, Muslim rapists and pedophiles are well-organised, and these predators often hunt their prey in rape-gangs in a tradition of razzia going back to the 'prophet'. The reason for this cultural difference is that pedophilia and rape are abhorrent in civilized societies, but are acceptable to Muslims because the perps are dutifully following Mohammed's example - and Mohammed is the 'Perfect Man': a pedophile, torturer, rapist and mass-murderer.

Child-rape, as well as being a permitted means of satisfying the jihadists' religiously repressed lusts, also degrades, violates and humiliates the hated 'najis kafir' children and their parents, thus asserting the supremacy of Islam and Muslims.

Of course not all Muslims do this sort of thing. However all Muslims (presumably including the 'peaceful' Ground Zero Sufis) revere Mohammed as their role model, and as such have no religious or moral doubts about ANY course of action that increases the power of Islam.

Could everyone please use their blogs, networks and forums to ensure that this horrendous Islamic attack is not airbrushed out of history by the MSM. Full details:
