Counter-Jihad Summit, Brussels 2007 (video)

This is long but there are some good points here as well as a giggle or two. The speaker, Robert Spencer is the owner of the excellent site, ‘Jihad Watch’ who explains how the term Islamaphobic is absurd and counter productive. The one point I think he understated was the question of the Islamic view of ‘innocence’. He mentions the oft quoted Koranic verse, “When one innocent is killed it is as if the whole world is murdered” but failed to mention that to be innocent in Islam is a very specific thing meaning essentially a devoted follower of Islam. No others can be innocent. I recommend the excellent movie, Farewell Israel (written about here on this blog) for a detailed explanation of the Islamic view of specific common and important words commonly misunderstood by the west.
