Islamists & Christians unite in hate
In Weimar Germany the National Socialists and the Communists ganged up against the more liberal parties. Stalin order the Communists to work against the mainstream parties first and foremost which helped give the Nazis a clear path to power. Often scoundrels who normally hate each other will gang up on a common enemy. So it is in India where Islamists are promising to help Christians ban the film The DaVinci Code.
Reuthers reports: "A powerful organisation of Indian Islamic clerics promised on Monday to help Christian groups launch protests if the authorities did not ban the screening of the controversial film, "The Da Vinci Code".
Protest in India against the film have so far been low key, but several Catholic groups have threatened to stage street demonstrations and even to shut down cinema halls screening it.
Now, powerful Islamic clerics have joined issue with Christians, saying "The Da Vinci Code" is blasphemous as it spreads lies about Jesus Christ.
"The Holy Koran recognises Jesus as a prophet. What the book says is an insult to both Christians and Muslims," Maulana Mansoor Ali Khan, general secretary of the All-India Sunni Jamiyat-ul-Ulema, an umbrella organisation of clerics, told Reuters.
"Muslims in India will help their Christian brothers protest this attack on our common religious belief."
The true nature of these religionists comes out: ""If the government doesn't do anything, we will try our own ways of stopping the film from being shown," said Syed Noori, president of Mumbai-based Raza Academy, a Muslim cultural organisation that often organises protests on issues concerning Islam. "We are prepared for violent protests in India if needed."
These are vile people with contempt for the rights of others. It is hard to resist the totalitarian temptation when you are fantasizing that some deity is giving you the only "truth" for the world. Delusional religion tends toward totalitarian politics. Here is just another example of it. We should also note that most Indians are neither Christian nor Muslim so this tiny minority wants to violently impose their agenda on the vast majority of Indians who seem unconcerned about the film. The proper response of the Indian government would be to allow the film and arrest and jail anyone who engages in violence with specially long sentences for the mullahs who lead the protests. And if that leads to more violence they jail them as well. No group should ever be allowed to gets its way politically by threatening violence.
But when Western leaders appeased the Islamists over the Danish cartoons and newspapers refused to show the cartoons even when reporting on them they set the stage for more and more threats of violence from Islamic lunatics.
