“When Islamists wage jihad — past, present and future — conquering and consolidating nonMuslim territories and centers in the name of Islam, never once considering to cede them back to their previous owners, they ultimately demonstrate that they live by the age-old adage ‘might makes right.’ [. . .] Why is it that whenever Muslim regions are conquered, such as in the case of Palestine, the same Islamists who would never concede one inch of Islam’s conquests resort to the United Nations and the court of public opinion, demanding justice, restitutions, rights and so forth?
“When Muslims beat infidels, it’s just too bad for the latter; they must submit to their new overlords’ rules with all the attendant discrimination and humiliation mandated for non-Muslims. Yet when Islam is beaten, demands for apologies and concessions are expected from the infidel world at large.”
Raymond Ibrahim, writing on “Islam gets concessions; infidels get conquered,” Dec. 5 in the Los Angeles Times
