Man who wants to kill me says Islam is a religion of peace
The world saw the irony with Pope Rage: Muslims committing violent acts in response to a call to forsake religious violence. Now the man who has vowed to kill me (see here and here, as well as below) affirms, without showing any sign of being aware of his self-contradiction, that Islam is a religion of peace.
Those who would respond, “Well, this is an obvious psychopath. What do you expect?” should think again. This cognitive dissonance is taken for granted, it goes unnoticed, among all too many Muslims today. Pope Rage and Cartoon Rage were both signs of just how extensive and deeply rooted it is.
A final irony is that my book about Muhammad only reports on what Muslim sources say about him. That is insulting Islam only in the way that Robert Redeker insulted Islam: by daring to tell truths about Muhammad as an infidel. What I say about Muhammad in this book is what Muslims say about him all over the world every day. The “insult,” if there is one, is that I also dare to disapprove and call on Muslims to reject Muhammad’s example where it leads to violence and oppression.
Oh, and I do have the guts to prove what I say. Everything I say about Muhammad in the book is footnoted from Islamic sources. But I have no idea who Dr. Zakir Naik is.
Anyway, here is an email sent from firstname.lastname@example.org to a Jihad Watch reader:
I am coming to America to hunt down spencer. Very soon he will be delivered!I will be violent against anyone who hurts muslim feelings about Prophet.
It is a religion of peace for everyone until some duckhead sprews out his damn saliva on a senstive topic as this. Spencer will be delivered.
If he has the guts to prove what he says. Ask him to come and consult Dr. Zakir Naik.
He will be killed for sure. Tell you FBI and CIA. You dont know muslims. They will rip apart US you know why? because America has insulted their religion.
