Myth vs Fact #426


Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace.

Sahih Muslim Book 020, Number 4626:
It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace upon him) said: Allah has undertaken to look after the affairs of one who goes out to fight in His way believing in Him and affirming the truth of His Apostles. He is committed to His care that Re will either admit him to Paradise or bring him back to his home from where he set out with a reward or (his share of) booty. By the Being in Whose Hand is the life of Muhammad. If a person gets wounded in the way of Allah, he will come on the Day of Judgment with his wound in the same condition as it was when it was first inflicted; its colour being the colour of blood but its smell will be the smell of musk. By, the Being in Whose Hand is Muhammad’s life, if it were not to be too hard upon the Muslime. I would not lag behind any expedition which is going to fight in the cause of Allah. But I do not have abundant means to provide them (the Mujahids) with riding beasts, nor have they (i. e. all of them) abundant means (to provide themselves with all the means of Jihad) so that they could he left behind. By the Being in Whose Hand is Mubammgls lac, I love to fight in the way of Allah and be killed, to fight and again be killed and to fight again and be killed.

Durban II: Screw You!


UN Watch has the Preliminary document of the African Regional Conference Preparatory to the Durban Review Conference in Microsoft Word Format. The Provisional Agenda and questionnaire replies are available at UNON.

Lets take a peek into Pandora’s box. [Emphasis added.]

4.  Emphasizes the urgent need to address the scourges of anti-Semitism, Christianophobia, and Islamophobia as contemporary forms of racism as well as racial and violent movements based on racism and discriminatory ideas directed at African, Arab, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other communities;

Our language has been molested!!! anti-Semitism, Christianophobia & Isllamophobia = racism ! Christianity & Islam are not races, they each include people of varying racial  and geographic backgrounds.  Hating a man on the basis of his skin color is irrational.  Skin color is not a valid predictor of behavior and it is a genetic trait not under the control of the individual. A believing, practicing Christian, who follows the Golden Rule, is a threat to no one; there is no reason to hate him.  A believing, practicing Muslim, is obligated to engage in war against pagans, Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians ; our blood and property are not sacred to him, its open season!  Fear of Islam is not irrational, it is intended,[3:151] [59:2] and is valid, based upon Islam’s history of violent expansion.

Wherever “racism” is referred to in the preliminary document, you can substitute Islamophobia.

Stresses the need for an assessment to be conducted by the Human Rights Council and the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on the extent to which racist phenomena are addressed through the implementation of specific laws, and underlines the importance of establishing national mechanisms with a view to specifically examining those phenomena;

They want the UNHRC to assess legislation addressing Islamophobia.  They want laws passed to prevent us from criticizing Islam.

  1. Reiterates strongly that freedom of religion or belief, freedom of opinion and expression, and non-discrimination are interdependent, and stresses the need to strengthen the process of effectively adjudicating cases associated with incitement to religious hatred under article 20 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and other analogous instruments;

Article 20

  1. Any propaganda for war shall be prohibited by law.
  2. Any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law.

Our freedom of expression is interdependent with the Muslim’s right not to be offended by exposure to the truth about Allah and Moe. Telling the truth about them is equated with incitement to religious hatred.

  1. Underlines the importance of the Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Intolerance and Discrimination Based on Religion or Belief proclaimed by the General Assembly in its resolution 36/55 of 25 November 1981;

Exactly what is being done to end Islam’s imposition of Dhimmitude upon Copts & Chaldeans?

13.  Calls upon States to avoid inflexibly clinging to free speech in defiance of the sensitivities existing in a society and with absolute disregard for religious feelings;

Our right to expose Islam’s mercenary motivation & barbarian  sacraments  is trumped by their right to be free from offense.  Yeah, right.

14. Reiterates  that it is critical for Governments and the judiciary to ensure that acts that constitute incitement under article 20 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights are closely monitored and do not enjoy impunity;

Such as the blood thirsty sermons delivered in Mosques all over the Middle East and recorded at MEMRI?

15.  Urges the Human Rights Committee to clarify the scope and content of article 20 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights with the aim, among other things, of defining an appropriate threshold for enacting relevant legislation;

They are talking about restricting our right of free expression!

20. Calls upon States to pay attention to the serious nature of incitement to religious hatred, such as anti-Semitism, Christianophobia and, more particularly, Islamophobia, and to promote the fight against those phenomena by strengthening interreligious and intercultural dialogue concerning the common ethics of all religions;

They are not really concerned about us, its Islam they are supporting.

27. Calls upon the Durban Review Conference to demonstrate the political will to confront those phenomena, and acknowledges that a failure of the Durban review process would, above all, pave the way for intensification of worrying racist and xenophobic trends, namely, the upsurge in racist violence, the political use of racism and its intellectual legitimization;

In view of point 4 cited above, read Islamophobic for racist / racism.

28.  Reiterates its concern about the plight of the Palestinian people under foreign occupations, urges respect for international human rights law and international humanitarian law, and calls for a just, comprehensive and lasting peace in the region;

The  Falestinians are the illegal occupiers, since Caliph Umar’s conquest of the Levant. Palestine is Israel, Palestinians are Jews.  The U.N. stands history, morality, truth and justice on their heads, inverting  objective factual reality.

34.  Reiterates its call to States and encourages the private sector to promote the development by the media, taking into account their independence, of a voluntary ethical code of conduct and self-regulatory measures;

Translation: encourages censorship.

  1. Reiterates to States the importance of abolishing and prohibiting any discrimination within their jurisdiction, criminalizing racial profiling, envisaging sanctions for those who violate the law and ensuring effective remedies for victims;
  2. Draws attention to the impact of counter-terrorism measures on the rise of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, including the practice of racial, ethnic, national and religious profiling;

Who hijacked three commercial flights and piloted them into office buildings?  Who carried bombs onto buses and subways? It was Muslims. But, no, we mustn’t profile; we are not to be wary of Muslims, of course not!   There is only one possible anti-terrorism measure: eliminating Islam.
.  75.

  1. Elaborating specific laws on combating incitement to racial and religious hatred, in conformity with obligations under article 20 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and article 4 of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination;

Objective: legislating censorship; Islam’s blasphemy law to be imposed on Dhimmis.

h. Introducing educational curricula aimed at raising awareness of different cultures and civilizations with a fair and objective perspective;

Insinuating Islamic propaganda into our schools.

m.  Devising special laws and policies to confront the ideologies and practices of extreme right wing groups;

Those who expose Islam are branded ‘Nazis’ and outlawed. As they are trying to do in Belgium.

    1. Normative measures and other practical solutions
    1. Prohibiting by law, and adopting the necessary policy measures to eliminate racial profiling and profiling based on any grounds of discrimination recognized under international human rights law, envisaging sanctions for those who violate the law and ensuring effective remedies for the victims;
    2. Prohibiting by law and adopting necessary policy measures to combat the dissemination of all ideas based upon racial superiority or hatred and incitement to hatred;
    3. Ensuring, in relation to the two above-mentioned themes:
      1. That lawmakers in every country discharge their responsibilities in conformity with article 20 (2) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and article 4 of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, taking due account of General Comment 15 of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination;
      1. That model legislation on this issue is elaborated through a joint exercise to be undertaken by the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and the Human Rights Committee;
      2. That permissible limitations on the exercise of the right to freedom of expression are codified;
      3. That a voluntary ethical code of conduct is elaborated, in association with the International Federation for Journalists, to address racism in the media and other modern information and communication technologies while taking into account fundamental issues, such as the right to freedom of expression, and to eliminate the projection and perpetuation through the media and new technologies of negative images and stereotypes of African people and people of African descent;
    1. Establishing the necessary complementarity and balance between human rights and fundamental freedoms with a view to fighting racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance;

Res Ipsa Loquitur!

Islam: Religion of peace.

Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4471:
It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Musa (Ash’ari) who said: We set out on an expedition with the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him). We were six in number and had (with us) only one camel which we rode turn by turn Our feet were injured. My feet were so badly injured that my nails dropped off. We covered our feet with rags. so this expedition was called Dhat-ur-Riqa’ (i. e. the expedition of rags) because we bandaged our feet with rags (on that day). Abu Burda said: Abu Musa narrated this tradition, and then disliked repeating it as he did not want to give any publicity to what he did in a noble cause Abu Usama said: Narrators other than Abu Buraida have added to the version of the words:” God will reward it.”
