She does not put this down to a “Muslim” mentality. Why not? Because her bigoted ranting and name-calling cannot detract from a plain reading of the Bible. She believes Moses ordered such. She believes Moses is a Jew, why didn’t she put that down to a “Jewish” mentality? It’s obvious:
1. She believes Moses is a Prophet and the vengeance against the Midianites was ordered by the Lord (as a Trinitarian this order comes from Jesus in her eyes as he is considered to be the 2nd person of the Trinity doctrine):
The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Avenge the people of Israel on the Midianites. Afterward you shall be gathered to your people.”
7 They warred against Midian, as the Lord commanded Moses, and killed every male.
25 The Lord said to Moses, 26 “Take the count of the plunder that was taken, both of man and of beast, you and Eleazar the priest and the heads of the fathers’ houses of the congregation, 27 and divide the plunder into two parts between the warriors who went out to battle and all the congregation.
2. It would be anti-Semitic to make a similar comment about Jews – something which would receive widespread (and rightful) condemnation from the public and it could get her into trouble with the law of the land. In effect, she’s a coward and a bully as she’s picking on the minority which is not as well protected when it comes to abuse and discrimination. Sadly, there are a number of Christians who feel they can get away with anti-Muslim comments and sentiment without being called out for bigotry, publicly condemned and reported to the authorities. Muslims have to do more to ensure anti-Muslim abuse is seen as severe and as reprehensible in the eyes of decent people in the UK as anti-Semitism is seen. We can learn from our Jewish friends as they have decades of experience in campaigning against discriminatory attitudes against their people – we should invite Jewish activists to help us with our activism against Islamophobia. Our Jewish friends have a lot of experience and knowledge we can benefit from.
