Muslims everywhere are up in arms about this Koran burning Pastor Jones of Florida is organizing for tomorrow.
Let us strike a deal with them: We won’t burn their Koran when they don’t burn the Bible or the American flag.
There in lies the problem: It is always OK to destroy crosses and burn the Bible and condemn the Great Satan (note the date on that link is September 9, 2010). But it is never OK to burn the Koran, criticize how Islam treats women, or mock Mohammed. Muslims are an arrogant people who cannot stand any affront to their “prestige” and self-proclaimed “holiness”.
The reality is Muslims are just as blinded to their own stupidity and double standard on these issues as most religious and legalistic hypocrites are. They all know that mockery exposes who they really are. They must protect themselves from mockery by scaring everyone who may mock them into silence through intimidation (readfatwas and murder). Such savage ruthlessness and narcissism cannot be ignored.
We must mock Islam. “But Jared, we may be threatened and killed!” Yes, it is a risk (one Secretary Gates understandably does not wish to take with the lives of American soldiers). Listen carefully: Narcissists have an elitist, egotistical, and grandiose view of themselves. This presentation of themselves is intimidating (ask anyone who is told by a fundamentalist Baptist that drinking alcohol is a sin and they’ll know what you are talking about) and completely exposes the goal of Islam: your submission to their rules.
So how to you repel and deflate a narcissistic bully? Mockery. What a Muslim really dreads, more than anything else, is feeling inferior. They lack any and all self-esteem (if you tend to think self-esteem is a load of bull, then translate “self-esteem” into “self-worth from being made in the image of God”) and cannot stand any humiliation. Submission only emboldens them. Humiliation awakens them to their real state.
That said, burning a Koran by Pastor Jones in Florida is a great thing for Islam. Their reaction to mockery exposes the stupidity of their beliefs and “nazi” reaction to this mockery. Mockery (and humiliation) will free them from this bondage by showing them what they have become.
