Democracy before Religon

I published this in today's edition of JyllandsPosten. AGORA did a marvelouss job translating, posting it on AGORA right away. Click the headline to read all of it; here you'll find only a few quotes.

Democracy before Religion
by Poul Højlund, March 15, 2006 in JyllandsPosten today

....
"Apparently a lot of people in high places in our Democracy have a hard time understanding the simple fact that Islam as traditionally interpreted is not compatible with Democracy. In a reversal of priorities, they are defending Islam's Freedom of Oppression by referring to the Freedom of Religion. Some even manage to bring the immigration debate into play: distancing oneself from the lack of Freedom in Islam is the same as discrimination or even racism.

Why is diminished Freedom acceptable when Religion is involved? Did not the Boers of South Africa call apartheid part of their faith? The Ku Klux Klan maintain their right to lynch black people as part of their faith - are they suddenly sacrosanct? No. None can be allowed to justify violations of Human Rights by invoking religious beliefs.

Only when it comes to Islam do some get all respectful and considerate of the intolerable. Where are the wrathful demonstrations against the massive oppression of free thought in the Moslem world? Against the grotesque oppression of women? Against the ongoing human rights violations? The standards by which we judge the Islamic world are obviously lower than the standards we apply to the rest of the world. To me, this seems like some kind of reverse racism, a twisted version of Kipling's old say about The White Man's Burden."
....
"Islam is like a one-way street with no exits. If one goes down that road, there is no turning back, no possibility of reforming or renouncing one's faith, no possibility of seeking other solutions and truths than those prescribed in the unchangeable and eternal laws of the Shari'ah. The system is self-perpetuating and completely closed. Islam was created by Muhammad with the intention of making it everlasting and universal."

Read on at AGORA, click headline. By the way: Muhammed is depicted again in my piece, the marble version from US Supreme Court. Let's see what happens ..

The basic insincerity of many who adopt trendy or chic positions while parading in Hyde Park is hidden until they are asked to stand up for the rights of others to disagree with them. Then they cave like a house of cards in a high wind because they have no real conviction underneath. Those of us who have perceived the scope of the danger have no illusions about quick fixes but we also know that maintaining politically correct poses is as dangerous as handing a loaded gun to a toddler, especially in this overcharged atmosphere being deliberately stoked by the political fires within Islam. Islam is like a flying axehead, coming right at us and most people are caught like deer in the headlights. Unable to move through uncertainty and fear. Instead they should take a stand. Just a small one. Buy a t-shirt supporting free speech and democracy. Every light that comes out from under the bushel can be put with all the other small gestures until we make a lovely glow. There's safety in numbers and if many many of us defy Islam day after day it may just catch on with the dhimmis amonst us. We have only our civilization to lose by not trying.
