Who is Going to Stop Islamic Fanatics?

ICC Note:

“An avalanche of violence and terror is rolling across the Islamic world,” Lord Weidenfeld of Chelsea writes for the Huffington Post. Tensions are flaring up in Egypt while oppressive blasphemy laws are increasingly being enacted throughout the Muslim world against defenseless minorities, including children. Among the greatest victims are Christians, yet Lord Weidenfeld asks, “Where are the protests against the persecution of Christians in the Arab world?” How long will the West permit and tolerate such hatred?

By Lord Weidenfeld of Chelsea

10/4/2012 Middle East (Huffington Post) – An avalanche of violence and terror is rolling across the Islamic world. A brief, insignificant movie that dares to caricature the prophet Mohammed in a slightly critical fashion has triggered murder, arson and street battles. Hillary Clinton and Angela Merkel condemn the film, but the jihadists continue to murder in Pakistan, Libya and Central Africa. Aided by the Internet the mobilisation of militant fanatics has now become a routine.

There are hardly any reactions from the West: where are the protests against the persecution of Christians in the Arab world? A Coptic academic from Egypt, who asked to remain anonymous, talks of horrible atrocities in the Egyptian provinces. There is only superficial coverage of the burning down of churches, the beating of prelates, the hate propaganda against the Catholic Church in the West Bank and the persecution of missionary orders in North Africa, and there is only scant admonition from the state chancelleries of the "Christian occident".

Where are the official protests against the bloodthirsty propaganda against the Jewish religion of the state and the media in Arab countries? The "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", originating in Tsarist Russia, that hate literature in which the drinking of blood of Christian children is described as a secret Easter ritual, enjoys a wide circulation. Not so long ago I saw in a bookshop in Amman not one but two new translations of Hitler's "Mein Kampf" and anti-Semitic books of fiction. All this is permitted and tolerated.
