A Funny Thing

In light of this news article and this one, shouldn't we begin to conclude that the real Islam can be discerned by listening to what its leaders are saying?

Jihad Watch comments:

Two New York mosque leaders charged with conspiring to support terrorists. Amazing how they could have risen to the leadership of a Muslim religious center while so thoroughly misunderstanding Islam. Funny thing: the same thing happened in Lodi, California. And all over the world, as we document here every day, we see Islamic clerics -- people who have dedicated their lives to studying and living out the religion -- at the forefront of terrorist movements. And yet so many people refuse to see what is right in front of their faces: maybe they aren't misunderstanding Islam at all.

It is indeed a "funny thing" that we are supposed to believe that all these clerics, the shepherds of their people, are ignorant of the true nature of Islam.

As for the muslim chaplain who prefers to believe in a conspiracy theory that the US or the Jews were behind the 9/11 attacks (in spite of his fellow Muslims taking credit for the attacks)--well that simply demonstrates that Islamic leaders want to have their cake and eat it too.

On the one hand Islamic clerics openly promote violent jihad against infidels as part and parcel of their religion; on the other they pretend to be the victims of a vast worldwide conspiracy to make Muslims look bad and insist that "Islam is a religion of peace".

These facts demonstrate that Islam is:

(a) Schizophrenic
(b) Paranoid
(c) a religion that promotes pathological lying
(d) All of the above
