MUSLIM RESPONSE VIDEO:
I find this response interesting, since I can't figure out what the video is complaining about. Consider, for instance, the following passage from the article:
Worshippers are repeatedly told they must lead separate lives from non-believers and not tolerate other religions. Christian teachings are described as "vile and disgusting, an abomination."
The point of this passage, clearly, is that the mosque claims to promote moderation and dialogue with other faiths, and yet, behind closed doors, the message can hardly be called "moderate." Is the writer doing anything wrong by pointing out the fact that the message the mosque claims to promote is quite different from the one it actually promotes?
The video also complains about the following passage:
Unbelievers ('kuffaars') are described in one DVD as: "Evil, wicked, mischievous people - you can see the evil in their face". Whilst Jews, "have abominated, filthy, disgusting gross belief - their time will come like every other evil person's time will come."
The Muslim response video complains that "kuffaars" is written in parentheses and quotation marks. But the writing is entirely correct. Parentheses are supposed to go around a word if a translation is added, and quotation marks go around the word if it's being quoted. Hence, the writer uses both parentheses and quotation marks. How dare he be grammatically correct! Again, our Muslim friend complains about nothing.
The Muslim response video also claims that the West is inconsistent, since this particular article points out the fact that Muslims are saying offensive things about Christians. Apparently, our Muslim friend thinks that the media will never point a finger at anyone who says anything about Islam. Is this true? Were Muslims on vacation when Jerry Vines called Muhammad a "demon-possessed pedophile"? Did they miss the media attention given to Falwell or Franklin Graham when they dared criticize Islam?
"Undercover Mosque" is doing the world a great service by proving, conclusively, that many Muslims who pretend to be moderate and peaceful are simply pretending. This is indisputable. Muslims feel the need to respond to the facts. But with nothing to say, they can only complain about nothing. "Undercover Mosque" complains that Muslims are deceiving us, and that they are preaching violence. The Muslim response video complains about parentheses. Talk about inconsistency!
I think that everyone should read the article carefully, then watch the video response and see how pointless the Muslim response is.
