Some of you may remember the Norwegian koran burning and the subsequent day of rage set into motion by the OIC, primary reactions in Turkey and Pakistan. Of course. It’s a buyer’s market for outraged mobs in Pakistan. Its nearly the only growth industry.
One of the more propagandistically efficacious responses by muslims was to give away thousands of free Korans across Norway hoping to make those who burned one seem petty and mean spirited. Unlike the muslims of course, raping, killing and waging jihad across Norway.
Of course this leads to a problem for the muslims I would think.
The purpose of burning the koran was to raise awareness of what was in it and its anti-Western components most Western people refuse to admit exist, or matter at all if they do.
So one wonders how giving thousands of them to Norwegians, beyond the superficial optics of a seemingly benevolent act in the wake of what is made out to be an awful one can work for muslims.
For the answer we turn to Author, Bruce Bawer from his December 10 2019 article at Gatestone:
- This 2013 Norwegian-language “Koran” is available online. A perusal of key passages, however, shows that it bears little or no resemblance to the actual Koran.
- Let us hope that the word gets around that the book they are being handed is not really the Koran at all.
On the heels of this remarkable news came the announcement that three Norwegian Muslim organizations, in response to SIAN’s Koran burning, planned to hand out 10,000 copies of the Koran to Norwegians at stands in Oslo and, perhaps, Bergen. The idea, said Hamza Ansari, a member of the board of one of those organizations, the Oslo mosque Minhaj-ul-Quran, was to “demystify” the holy book. Another one of the organizations, the Islamic Literary Association, added that “the Koran teaches us to show love.” Which Koran, one wondered, were they talking about? Surely not the one I have read, which is full of injunctions to kill Jews and other infidels, among many other horrific mandates. Indeed, it turned out that the “Koran” in question is a 2013 translation into Norwegian that “contains explanations” intended to clarify the seventh-century text for twenty-first-century readers.
In fact, this 2013 Norwegian-language “Koran” is available online. A perusal of key passages, however, shows that it bears little or no resemblance to the actual Koran. Take this verse:
O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. (5:51)
In the Norwegian “translation,” this verse reads as follows:
Is it a judgment of ignorance they want? And who is better at (judging) a judgment than Allah for a people who have the certainty of faith?
Please do click over and read the whole article by Bruce Bawer. It also explains more about how Norway is threatening indigenous Norwegian citizens that if they do not act as if burning koran (or insulting islam) is a crime, the government will damn well make it a crime.
And the logic is that burning a koran is an utterance of hate, and somehow that’s illegal unless of course, its hate of anything the state demands you hate. Anything that can be branded as nazi for instance, or classical. Standard directed 2 minutes of hate stuff. Whatever is under the rubric of Emmanuel Goldstein will, no doubt be made mandatory to hate, while any act or utterance that diminishes the authority of leftism or Islam will be a “hate crime”.
The most basic sleight of hand of the totalitarian, yet surprisingly to many of us, Astonishingly effective so far.
One of the very first books written in English in the modern era about the consequences of the importation of Islam to Europe and the West, was “While Europe Slept” by Bruce Bawer. It is still, over a decade later, one of the best ‘Red Pill’ books you can get on the subject. Any of you looking for a gift for a friend that would be at least receptive to reality enough to read a book on it, that would be an excellent choice.
UPDATE: Norwegians appear to be burning Korans all over the place now.
