"Allah Loves The Little Children..." But Apparently You Shouldn't

This appears on both Little Green Footballs and Robert Spencer's Jihad Watch and is just another example of why I am increasingly of the belief that there are fundamental and perhaps irreconcilable impediments to the assimilation and full integration of devout Muslims into non-Muslim cultures. Here is an excerpt from "Play and Learn," a Muslim catechism for children: No Love Towards The Unbelievers In order to live with the morals of the Qur'an, one should completely leave the culture and all the moral values of the profane society. One of the first things to be left is the love towards it. In a profane society, all the relations are based on selfish interests. A person gets along with the other one only if there is a benefit from him or if he is been taken care of the other or at least he treats him good. Another measure is the family tie. People love others just because that they are from the same family; or from the same dynasty, or from the same society or sometimes even from the same nation. However these are not the criteria for the believers. Because, believers love Allah more than anything or anyone. "Yet there are men who take (for worship) others besides Allah, as equal (with Allah): They love them as they should love Allah. But those of Faith are overflowing in their love for Allah. If only the unrighteous could see, behold, they would see the penalty: that to Allah belongs all power, and Allah will strongly enforce the penalty."(AL-BAQARA 165) Believers respect Allah above anything, therefore the believers love people according to their sincerity with Allah, and they dislike them according to their disobey to Allah. No matter if these people are close to him or not. This characteristic of the believers is described in the Qur'an as: "Thou wilt not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, loving those who resist Allah and His Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred. For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with a spirit from Himself. And He will admit them to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, to dwell therein (for ever). Allah will be well pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Truly it is the Party of Allah that will achieve Felicity."(AL-MUJADILA 22) Having even a little bit of love towards the unbelievers would never be a proper attitude for a believer Think about our experience with racism. Children are not born hating those that are different from them. This is something that they are taught either directly or by example. There are so many examples of the indoctrination of Muslim children into the world of "jihad" and hate for "non-believers" that there is not enough time and space to list them here. Suffice to say that it goes on and is widespread, including in this country. It is painful and sad to acknowledge, but acknowledge it we must if we are to understand the direction we are headed.
