Muslim–Moonbat Marriage on the Rocks?

A shared hatred of America and the freedom it defends may not be enough to cement a lasting marriage between Muslims and moonbats. Amer Taheri reports:

Anxious to create what they call "a global progressive front," Presidents Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran and Hugo Chavez of Venezuela are sponsoring projects to underline "the ideological kinship of the left and revolutionary Islam."

However, things went awry at a recent Marxist–Islamist lovefest in Iran when the "coordinator of the Association of Volunteers for Suicide-Martyrdom" Hajj Saeed Qassemi took the podium:

Praising the late "Che" as "a true revolutionary who made the American Great Satan tremble," he "revealed" that Guevara had been "a truly religious man who believed in God and hated communism and the Soviet Union."
"Today, communism has been consigned to the garbage can of history as foreseen by Imam Khomeini," Qassemi said. "Thus progressists everywhere must accept the leadership of our religious, pro-justice movement."
Demanding the right to respond, Aleida Guevara [daughter of the infamous executioner Che] told the conference that Qassemi's claim might be based on a bad translation: "My father never mentioned God," she said as the hall sighed in chagrined disbelief. "He never met God."
The remarks caused a commotion amid which Aleida and her brother were whisked away, led into a car and driven to their hotel under escort.

Islamists don't want to admit what they're crawling into bed with. Even followers of an evil god will be appalled by the grotesque nihilism of those who reject the very concept of God.

It is especially significant that this Marxist-Muslim meeting was in Iran. Apparently Iranian Muslims have done this before, as summarized by zombie in the comments (zombie explains it much better than I could):

Remember that Khomeini could not have overthrown the Shah without the help of the Iranian communists, who joined forces with their traditional enemies (the mullahs) to overthrow the king. The theory, of course, was that once the Shah was dead ("checkmate," literally), the communists planned to jettison the Muslims and seized control for themselves.

In retrospect, that plan was a little, shall we say, naive.

The Islamists proceeded to massacre, torture and imprison the communists, who were absolutely gobsmacked by the velocity and ferocity of the betrayal.

Within a matter of months, all the Iranian communists were either dead, cowed into silence, imprisoned, or had fled overseas.

Don't these leftist fools ever learn anything?

Keep grabbing for the cupcake, morons.

Oops, everything after the colon are zombie's words, I must've messed up the bold tags.

I was pretty amazed to read that Muslims have a history of tricking leftists into joining them.

"He never met God."

I bet he got some face time with Satan though.

"I was pretty amazed to read that Muslims have a history of tricking leftists into joining them."

...and vise-versa; been going on for decades (excellent post, by the way). That's how the Soviets got their foothold into Afghanistan in the '70s- schnookering them into thinking that the "Imperialist Americans" were coming for them, and that they (Soviets) were there to "protect" them. And it's interesting to know that they've been in Iraq, Syria, South Yemen, Angola, South Africa, Mexico, etc., etc. for many years. Gee, I just can't figure out why...!?!?!

Damn! I saw the Che shirt and just skipped this article, but now that I read it I am glad that I came back to read this post.

This is absolutely hilarious.

Basically, the Islamists jumped the gun a bit. Like the Iranian Revolution they are supposed to wait until after they win the revolution before they liquidate their Leftist allies.

If something like this happened to an American Conservative the media would be all over this story. Instead it will be a forgotten lesson in the perils and lunacy of moonbattery. One of many in our "objective" media.
