QUESTIONS FOR ROBERT SPENCER:
1. How does Jihad Watch’s portrayal of Islam and Muslims as a “permanent threat” in the West differ from the classic anti-Semitism of Nazi Germany in the 1930s?
2. Is it “Jihad Watch” or “Der StÃ¼rmer”?
Robert Spencer’s board vice president, the mysterious “Hugh Fitzgerald” wrote:
Millions of Muslim migrants, now settled in Western Europe and even, to a thankfully much lesser degree, in North America. They give no signs of abandoning their loyalty to Islam and no signs of any permanent acceptance of the principles on which the Infidel nation-states in which they have been permitted to settle are built. They give no signs, en masse, of truly integating [sic] into a world which, of course, since every political, intellectual and moral principle of that world is flatly contradicted by Islam, of course they would not. Only a handful, who essentially abandon Islam (even if they pretend they have not, often calling themselves “cultural Muslims” by which they mean little more than a fond memory of certain kinds of cooking), can be intelligently integrated into Western societies. The rest remain a permanent source of disruption, misinformation, threat, and of course potential menace.
