Happy Dancers In Iran Sentenced To 91 Lashes Blogger Sentenced To Death

The idea of a moderate Islamist is an oxymoron myth
An idea we in the West dealing with Islam must quickly dismiss
Obama had it totally wrong and with his error we will pay a price
ISIS is Islam, maybe a bit more rabid; we cannot listen to his and CAIR’s siren entice
In Iran a crackdown on expression has just occurred
The “Happy” Dancers were targeted since pop music to the young is a lure
Seven young adults arrested and thrown in jail
Held for a selfie video of them dancing, held without bail
Still trying to cut a deal so Iran will get its nukes
The “moderate” President Rouhani tweeted to the regime a lighten up rebuke
Released but then tried with six months to a year handed out
Topped off by 91 lashes each removing any moderate existence doubt
One blogger was less fortunate and do not hold your breath
Soheil Arabi, a blogger, for insulting the Prophet Muhammad was sentenced to death
There is no moderation in a religion that punishes free speech
There is no moderation in a religion that kills if you convert to get beyond its reach
There is no moderation when women are basically chattel deprived of equal rights
There is no moderation when women can be subject to the “honor killing” might
There is no moderation when Sharia Law becomes the law of the land
None of us are Islamaphobiacs if against this tyranny we want to make a stand
What is so frightening is that it took almost 1700 years before the fires of Christian persecution to finally die out
If Islam apes Christianity in terms of its intolerance, we have another 200 plus years before this intolerance also dies out
We cannot kill each Muslim on this planet; we somehow need to know how their path to tolerance we can hasten to evolve
If we do not to be in constant conflict this is an issue we must somehow solve
This poet may be chasing windmills but as a child of the 60’s believes good rock and roll
This is how you have a chance to achieve your goal
“Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so?
Now do you believe in rock and roll
Can music save your mortal soul
And can you teach me how to dance real slow?"
Don MacLean said it best;
We have to from the mullahs divest
The young men not wanting to wanting to wait for in  Paradise virgins that do not exist
And the young women who under Sharia no longer want to be as equals dismissed
