EU redefines 'peace' to accommodate jihad
Allah has spoken, wonders don’t cease.
Praise for the terror, praise for the jihad
Praises for Allah, Islam is peace.
With apologies to lyricist Eleanor Farjeon, and shame before those who expect a greater sense of artistry from Cranmer, this was cobbled together hastily this morning as news reached His Grace that Yusuf Islam, aka Cat Stevens, has been awarded the highest accolade in EUrabia – the ‘Mediterranean Prize for Peace’:
Yusuf is being awarded the prestigious award as a result of the work he has done to increase peace in the world… The prize is assigned each year to personalities of political, cultural, and artistic worlds that contributed with their actions to reduce tensions and begin an upgrading process of cultural differences and shared values in the area of the Greater Mediterranean.
Increasing peace? Reducing tensions? This is the man who has not merely sung innocently of mornings breaking and blackbirds singing, but supports the fatwa upon the head of Sir Salman Rushdie, believes that apostates should be put to death, and lends his support to Hamas.
The only peace expounded in the Qur’an is the socio-political peace of submission to the Shari’a, and the religio-political peace attained by submission to Allah. This is a peace of submission to Islam, and appears to constitute the EU’s new definition of ‘peace’.
Who are they to grant Islam this propaganda coup? Who are they to spout ‘peace’ where there is no peace? And why does the Heir to the Throne and future Supreme Governor of the Church of England prostrate himself before this facade? The Lord said: ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.’ And this peace is such a precious jewel that it is worth everything but truth.
As the Global Politician observes: ‘Our so-called leaders through the European Union are busy selling our continent and the freedom of our children down the river, and smile while they are doing it. The only way to stop this is to dismantle the European Union. All of it. If we don't do so, and soon, Europe simply won’t survive.’
On this, Cranmer and His Holiness the Pope are in complete accord.
