The need for Self Respect

Apologies for the lack of posting but life happens. One of the more disturbing things I've noted in the Muslim blogosphere is the rush to issue what I call an "instant condemnation." Now lets be clear on this, we all condemn acts of terrorism no matter who does it. That being said, I don't see the reason or need to give an "explanation" every time something happens in some part of the Muslim world, and by anxiously jumping the gun we're taking responsibility for actions which have nothing to do with us or our deen, and beyond our control.
I refuse to march in lockstep for the convenience of others, and if you're too incompetent, ignorant and afraid to understand interpret world events outside of pre-conditioned black and white media paradigms, thats your problem. Its not my job to sugar coat the reality of the world we live in. This is not an angry rant or a rejection of da'wa efforts, but its time Muslims started to show some dignity, self-respect and emotional maturity. Theres no need to put on a minstrel show for anybody. If you're a judeofascist or shabbos goy, trust me, I will never appease you and intend to be a thorn in your side. Thats just the way I roll.
Nor should we react to an event unless we have all the facts. If a deranged father kills his daughter in Canada, theres no need to offer some inept thesis on "Islamic reform" and some honor killing(which is nothing more then a fancy orientalistic term for ethnisizing domestic violence in Eastern communities) conspiracy theory. Tell that obese, punjabi, misanthrope Tarek Fatah and his fellow neocon bastards to shut their behinds up before using the murder of a young woman to push their own political agenda. I will not comment on the Aqsa Pervez case until the full facts are in.
Then comes the crocodile tear factory for feudal princess Benazir Bhutto from the usual suspects. Reading the papers, one wonders if we are talking about the same person. The fact is that her entire record consisting of widespread corruption, murder and torture(kufi tip : Indigo Jo) has been totally white washed for a fantasy Hollywood scenario of being a "brave, courageous woman who gave her life for democracy" in Pakistan. My only regret is that Benazir was not tried for her crimes and thrown in the slammer along with Musharraf, Altaf Hussein, and her husband with the key thrown away. Too bad that some of us have memories which go beyond 2 weeks, and wont shed crocodile tears for the photogenic puppet progeny of mafioso style political crime families. Lets condemn the violence but refrain from ignoring the record.

PS - There was no "top 10 pro-regressive Moslim idiot list" for 2007 simply because that bowel movement disintegrated faster then the pog craze. Don't get me wrong, the gutter snipes are still out there and have sought shelter amongst the usual suspects...but are no longer a factor in the Muslim community(but I'm still watching you T-Fat). I might do a piece of third rate Arab elitist bloggers aka "Uncle Tamers" pretending to be harbingers of "democracy," so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Salaam Alaikum,

Re: Uncle Tamer's. One name springs to mind instantly :Sandmonkey.

Right on, PublicDebate! You're the sort of Iron Chef we need in that sort of kitchen. LoL!

Safia, you read my mind. I've ran into that twerp a couple of years back on AltMuslim, and the battered sycophant was never seen again on that website.
I'll be dealing with that degenerate on the upcoming list. The Pig Pharaoh is another one....

Tell Uncle Tamir "The Sandmonkey" that when Egyptian Girls don't take the pill, they turn into "Mummies". Enta Awez Eah Ya Ragel.

I agree with you brother. I hate when the bloggers run to condemnation if even a small cracker explodes any where in the world.

Why the hell would muslims be sorry for Bhuttos death. What did she do for pakistanis as a whole except then eating all there hard earned money. And why the guilt trip as if they did it. It high time we should stop this condemnation police running around.

Sorry for the late comments. While I agree that you make some very valid points in this article, and I really do like your blog, and really appreciate the way that you defend Muslims from the hateful, ziocon, Islamiphobic extremist kuffar, I disagree with some things you and the other people commenting have said.

I think that when some Muslims allegedly have done something or have planned to do something "in the name of Islam," that we as Muslims should say that this is wrong, that we as Muslims DO denounce and condemn these acts, that they are unIslamic and wrong, etc. One reason I say this is because we're supposed to be better then the misguided, disbelieving non-Muslims. Another reason I say this is that there are more and more Muslims that seemingly believe in this strange, extremist type of ideology, for instance, saying that the blood and wealth of all noncombatant kuffar are halaal, and other things like this. These Muslims actually see eye to eye on what "Islam really is" and the “definition of Islam,” agreeing 100% with the most hateful, bigoted, zionazi, ziocon, kuffar such as Pipes, Spencer, etc.

At the same time I'm saying that we should ALSO point out to the blood soaked, evil, heinous crimes of the Crusaders and zionists and their many ugly, dirty deeds whether in Palestine, Chechnya, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc., and point to what these Christofascist crusaders did recently such the killing of at least 800,000 innocent Muslims in Iraq, for the sake of the criminal zionist entity, or other specific massacres and crimes such at what happened in Srebrenica about 13 years ago when these Crusaders slaughtered 8,000 unarmed men and boys, etc. You get what I'm saying?

Jazakallah khair for your assessment, justabro. My point is that we should wait for all the facts to be in, and not be reactionaries by jumping the gun the moment a sensationist headline hits print. We can condemn an unislamic act without sharing the guilt of a crime which has nothing to do with us, or our deen.
