The lunacies of our time include this one, which has recently not been in the news: the notion that Christians and Muslims can, through “interfaith dialogue,” reconcile their differences sufficiently to put an end to the enmity between them. Pope Francis is a principal exponent of this nonsense, which stands as powerful evidence that he is unfit for the Throne of Saint Peter. (Not that we actually needed any more, but there it is.)
Every so often, the Islam-powered violence against other faiths recedes a little, and the credulous start believing that enduring peace is possible short of quarantine or genocide. Then we get stories like this one:
Australian Salafi Scholar Abu Ousayd: Saying “Merry Christmas” Is Worse than Congratulating a Person for Murder, Adultery, Drinking, Gambling #Australia #Christmas pic.twitter.com/9aHcuvAOe8

There’s some “interfaith dialogue” for you. Do you think this cleric is alone in his hatred of Christianity and Christians? I don’t:
Mohamed Salah, a Muslim Liverpool soccer star, is under attack by Muslim fans after he had the audacity to post a picture on social media with his family in front of a Christmas tree.
Honoring and respecting the Christian holiday was just too much for some Muslim fans.
We thought you were a role model and the best ambassador for your religion to influence others. We did not expect you to be affected and to share with them (cursing and cursing God), Salah.. Don’t be like someone who sells his religion with a little offer from God. Congratulate them for fame or your satisfaction or money! “Whoever pleases people with God’s wrath, God will be angry with him and people will be angry with him.”
Hello Salah, this prostration is repeated every year, and our responses will be repeated, not in order for you to stop, for we have learned your worth, but to respond so that the world and those who read our words in the future know that Islam does not command humiliation and submissiveness as you do, nor does it dilute religion and strip away values in order to please anyone. And make sure that honor by holding on to this religion and its equal is humiliating.
People in Liverpool and in Britain in general
This person does not represent Islam at all
We as Muslims refuse to celebrate this fictitious holiday
Thank you and may God guide you to Islam
Mo Salah, I loved you as a Bayern fan. I viewed you as my role model. Even though you never played for Bayern, you inspired me. However, after this tweet, I can no longer view you as my role model. You broke my heart. If you don‘t delete this tweet, I will unfollow you.
How do you like that “dialogue?”
This is an upsetting thing to confront at any time, and much worse during the Christmas season. Moreover, it’s not uncommon. Islam embeds the conquest and subjugation of the whole world by violence in its mandates. It is irrefutably part of Islamic doctrine. Why else would the “moderates” do nothing to tame the “radicals” who speak openly of such conquest? As has been said, the “radical” Muslim wants to kill you; the “moderate” Muslim wants the radical Muslim to kill you.
Britain, whose borders have been open to Islamic migration for decades now, is probably a lost cause. America can still be protected from it…if the will is there. But will or no will, we cannot expect that any amount or intensity of “dialogue” will halt Muslims’ hatred of Christianity, of Judaism, and of all other faiths that are not Islam. For it is written in Islam’s scriptures that there is dar al-Islam – the House of Islam – and dar al-Harb – the House of War – and that the former must conquer the latter.
Don’t kid yourself.
My wife is – nominally – a Sunni Muslim (really an atheist). But she agreed to raise the kids as Jews, we’ve converted them, and I’m doing my best. Anyway, before they came along we joined a local Shul and one day there was an organized “interfaith” event. In comes a local Imam flanked by two women in hijabs and one also in the robes (face visible). My wife said “Those poor women”. Aside: one day her sister back in Kazakhstan said she was thinking about wearing a hijab, and my wife exploded: “We’re Kazakhs; we don’t wear that Arab sh*t”! Or at least that what she said she was screaming after the fact.
During the discussion the Imam said something that I think only I picked up. He said that America’s problems were due to secular law. So I put down my question on the 3×5 card and turned it in. “You said ‘secular law’ was the root of America’s problems. What’s your solution? Sharia law”?
My Rabbi was the screener for that. IIRC he looked at me – knowing even then I wasn’t one of the Leftist herd – and did not ask it. Too bad. It’d have been nice to pin that guy down.
