Kopierede/fra hoften

For nylig måtte besøgende på rom-producenten Captain Morgans hjemmeside krydse af, hvor de bekræftede at de ikke var muslimer. Det tog selvsagt ikke lang tid før feltet blev fjernet. Men er dette ikke nok et eksempel på snigende islamisering?

Besøger man hjemmesiden til en alkoholproducent, er det ikke usædvanlig at man må bekræfte at man er gammel nok til at kunne nyde alkohol lovligt i det land, man er statsborger i. Mange vinproducenter vil for eksempel ikke slippe norske besøgende under 18 år videre ind på deres hjemmesider.

Producenten af det kendte rom-mærke Captain Morgan tog det legale aspekt et skridt videre da det for nylig blev afdækket at besøgende på hjemmesiden måtte krydse af for at de ikke var muslimer.

Last week it was discovered that the U.S. website of rum brand Captain Morgan was asking visitors to check a box confirming that they were “non-Muslim.” After the box became a focus of controversy, it was quickly removed, but questions remain. The UK’s Metro newspaper says that the box “provoked intense theological debate online, with some calling it an example of ‘back door Sharia’ and others branding it ‘corporate racism.’” Neither Islam nor rum is a race, but back door Sharia? That it certainly is.

“Kontroversielt”? Selvfølgelig. “Corporate racism”? Overhovedet ikke. Men garanteret snigende islamisering. Eller tilpasning til islam, hvis det er en mere spiselig måde at sige det på.

Hvorfor skal en alkoholproducent bryde sig om hvilken tro – eller mangel på sådan – besøgende på deres hjemmeside har? Sharia-aspektet her er oplagt: Koranen (5:90) forbyder konsumering af alkohol. PJ Media skriver:

Thus we saw last weekthe Sharia authorities in Nigeria’s Kano State destroying 196,400 bottles of beer. Kano Governor Abdullahi Ganduje explained why: “In Islam, alcohol is strongly forbidden. Our Islamic Scholars, religious and community leaders should join hands together in the crusade [sic!] against such social vices.” Ganduje, like the temperance crusaders of old in the United States, apparently believes that people can’t be trusted to do the right thing of their own accord, and so the cause of temptation simply must be taken away from them.

We also saw last week what happens if the cause of temptation is not taken away. Jihadis entered the village of Mbau in Mozambique and came upon a group of young people who were drinking alcohol; they murdered ten of them. The perpetrators didn’t notice the incongruity of committing a major evil in order to stop the commission of a minor vice; they believed that Allah was going to punish these miscreants by their hands, as the Qur’an says.

Hvad med Captain Morgan? Det vigtigste spørgsmål er hvorfor selskabet i det hele taget kom på at en boks for “non-Muslim” var en tilfældig fejl. Det er ikke illegalt at drikke alkohol i USA, så sharia-tænkningen må have taget overhånd. Selskabets “forklaring” er latterlig:

But why did Captain Morgan agree to implement Sharia? On that question the rummies are stonewalling, claiming improbably, according to Metro, that “far from being a case of discrimination or an attempt to appease religious zealots, it turns out a technical error was behind the puzzling message.”

Oh, come on, Captain. I’ve had all kinds of technical errors at my website over the years, and none of them ever caused a box to appear that asked visitors to affirm that they weren’t Muslim. Someone plainly did this on purpose. Could it have been because Captain Morgan was threatened? Could someone have contacted the Diageo company, which owns the Captain Morgan brand, and warned them of consequences like those we saw last week in Mozambique if they dared to continue to make alcohol available to Muslims, and didn’t take any steps to make sure it wasn’t sold to them?

Hvis firmaet Diageo, som ejer Captain Morgan, har modtaget trusler med påbud om at stoppe med at producere alkohol, vil man næppe offentliggøre disse. For så er man jo islamofob.
