“Global Ship” Passengers Don’t Share a Common Destination

January 24, 2011 09:11

Lt. Colonel James Zumwalt, USMC (ret) says the passenger list for the global ship envisioned by Muslims is much shorter—i.e., only including those embracing Islam through birth or conversion. The other five billion non-Muslim passengers must convert or be tossed overboard as unwelcome stowaways on a “Muslims Only” cruise.

The Muslim world’s belief in the inequality of human life was made clear in 1981. After a unanimous vote by all United Nations members in 1948 approving the Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaiming the equality of all human life, thirty-three years later the 57 member states of Organization of the Islamic Conference found the declaration “unacceptable” as it did not comport with Islam’s Sharia law. Sharia law recognizes equality only among Muslim men, with very limited human rights for Muslim women. As for non-Muslims, Shariah recognizes no rights—not even the right to live.

Former Israeli Ambassador Yoram Ettinger recently made an interesting observation that needs to be understood by our new Congress. Since 1994, the largest amount of per capita foreign aid paid out by the US has gone to the Palestinian Authority (PA). As Ettinger states, also since 1994, “there has been an unprecedented intensification of Palestinian anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and anti-US hate-education and incitement in PA-controlled schools, mosques and media, an all-time high PA non-compliance with commitments made to the US and Israel and an unparalleled expansion of Palestinian terrorism infrastructure and activity. Thus, foreign aid has not moderated the PA. Foreign aid has rewarded PA hate-education, non-compliance and terrorism.”

At a time the US government is examining ways of cutting the budget, the best place to look for senseless expenditures is those programs in Muslim states funded by the US for the welfare of their people but misappropriated by their leaders to promote anti-US values. Doing so will be a first step in recognizing not all onboard our global ship have in mind a common destination for its passengers.
