Cartoon Jihad - Muslim group criticizes Iran's President

As I've stated in previous posts, the moderates within Islam need to be heard. We need to encourage them to speak out and act, so that as much as possible is done to destroy the Islamofascists that endanger not only the West but Islam itself. It's a postive moment to see a Muslim group publicly stand against anti-semitism.

Bloggledygook has this

A Muslim cultural institute in Germany on Monday criticised Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for disparaging the Holocaust, daring him to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp.

"In this place of horror he can again deny the Holocaust, if he has the courage," a spokesman for the Islam-Archiv-Deutschland Central Institute told the German Catholic press agency KNA.

"If he has the courage". I doubt that ranting psychotic child has the sort of courage to do this.

By denying the Holocaust, Ahmadinejad not only denigrated the Jewish victims of the genocide but also the 200,000 Roms and Arabs murdered in the "gypsy camp" of Auschwitz-Birkenau and other camps, the institute spokesman said.

The fact that the president of an Islamic state repeated Nazi anti-Semitism was harmful to the image of Islam and "a disgrace for all the world’s Muslims", he added.

Strong words and it is good to see Muslims stand up against such rantings.

The Berlin-based institute, founded in 1927, is the oldest Muslim body in Germany.

It has been dedicated to preserving the community’s archives since the 18th century and fostering relations between Muslims and other religions.


H/T Belmont Club who presents this and another matter in contrast to the quest for solitary power and quotes from Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings for good measure.

Tolkien well understood to what airless places men are led in the quest for solitary power --  "no taste of food, no feel of water, no sound of wind, no memory of tree or grass or flower, no image of moon or star are left to me," was Frodo's description of the arid sustenance of the Ring.

Hopefully, this will become a broad and powerful trend, with Muslims ever more, publicly criticizing and working against the radicals on  many levels. The time has come, when simply ignoring them will not do.
