Jeez... what does a Dutch prophet have to do to convince those in the meeja most receptive to his 'Muslims under the mattress' message? You know, the ones who paid their pretty penny, battled their way to the remote south-western Sydney suburb of Liverpool (albeit with the assistance of a Gregory's), drank deeply of his STOP ISLAM BEFORE IT STOPS YOU! rant, and, who knows, maybe even knelt and kissed the hem of his robe.
Now you're not going to believe this, but once they'd made it back to civilization, these renegades immediately set about SOWING DOUBT & DIVISION IN THE RANKS!
First, the Q Society's go-to man at Fairfax, Paul Sheehan, threw a spanner in the works by actually conceding that MOST MUSLIMS ARE NOT FROTHING FUNDAMENTALISTS:
"[T]here is no Muslim monolith. The problem is a strain of violent, medieval, repressive Islamic fundamentalism that exists within every large Muslim community but does not define any large Muslim community." (Overkill in the name of Islam, Sydney Morning Herald, 25/2/13)
Then, as if that concession to the bleeding obvious were not bad enough, bloody Miranda Devine just up and lashed out at Geert something terrible.
True, she did kick off by condemning "Australia's shabby treatment of Geert Wilders" and faithfully recording his every (?) inspired utterance, but then, in an unforgivable affront to the coiffed Cassandra, the bitch actually went on a thinking binge:
"Much of what he says about the difficulties of Muslim integration in Europe is true. But I couldn't help but wonder how it would feel for the decent law-abiding Australian Muslims I know to sit in that room. What is wrong with a Muslim woman wearing a headscarf? What is wrong painting an arrow on the floor of a jail cell pointing to Mecca? What is wrong with Muslims building a mosque to pray in? And why keep calling Muhammad a paedophile? Some of what Wilders says is calculated to cause offence, and so if he is snubbed, he can blame himself." (Free speech stoned to death, Sunday Telegraph, 24/2/13)
Islamic fundamentalism does not define any large Muslim community? Decent, law-abiding Muslims I know...?
Really now, with 'friends' like these...
