Prince Charles: The Constantine of Islam?Prince Charles: The Constantine of Islam?
Is Prince Charles being groomed to become the Constantine of Islam in England? The Prince has not made any announcements about his conversion. But he is not stranger to surprises. After all, didn’t he surprise everyone with his confession to adultery when he was still married to Princess Diana? Charles has made several strong and disturbing public statements endorsing Islam “as the solution to the spiritual and cultural ills of Britain and the West”. When Ayatollah Khomeini issued the fatwa against Salman Rushdie for lampooning Muhammad in his novel Satanic Verses, rather than defend Rushdie's right to free speech, Charles reacted to the death decree by reflecting on the positive features that Islam has to offer the spiritually empty lives of his countrymen.
According to the Prince, all that Muslim countries need to learn from the West is English, while the “spiritually bankrupt” Westerners are in dire need of learning Islamic philosophy and values. What philosophy? What values? Tell me what Islam has that Christianity doesn't and I will tell you a million things that the Western culture has that Islam doesn't. First and foremost is freedom of thought and respect for human dignity. In the West people are people. In Islam they are slaves and like animals their thoughts do not count. If they dare to express a thought contrary to Islam, they will be executed. Instead of coming to America and lecturing to Americans about a faith of which he knows nothing but some lies and clichés that he has been told, I challenge the Prince of Wales to urge his panel of "wise men" to confront me and prove that my charges against Muhammad are false. Will he at least ask them to do that? If he really cares about the truth, this is the least he should do.
