In this report, it appears that the end of the trial is drawing closer, but retarded by transfer to a different judge and lack of funds for the lawyer. The persecution of Hector Aleem illustrates the absolute necessity of defeating the push for blasphemy laws. There is neither security nor justice for minorities where Allah’s writ runs.
We learn from Reliance of the Traveller, o11.10 that saying anything negative about Islam, Moe or Allah carries the death penalty. Full understanding of the the issue requires reading o8.1 & o9.14 to learn of the penalty and o8.7 for the list of prohibited expressions.
Two Europeans are currently on trial for revealing the truth about Islam and one was convicted earlier this year. There is no right more precious than that of free speech because without it, we can not warn our fellows of approaching danger. Shall we be led, “dumb like sheep to the slaughter”?
For the first time ever we are about to share some good news with you. As you all know that Our Father Hector Aleem is falsely accused of Blasphemy charge. And you also know that Sunni Tehreek (A terrorist organization) is behind that and lodged that case on our father. And you also know that when daddy was arrested, Sunni Tehreek lodged more cases on him (with different plaintiffs) to prevent him of getting out of the jail. But these other cases were lodged on him when he was in jail. Hector Aleem was arrested in January 2009 due to that Blasphemy case and after three months i.e. on April 2009 more cases were lodged on him which were some other criminal charges. Of course all these cases are false and there is no evidence against our father. That was done to prevent him from getting out of the jail and to increase tension for him and his family and to torture him mentally. Those cases are being processed along with that Blasphemy case. But the good news is that our father Hector Aleem has been released from three of those Criminal cases because there was absolutely no evidence against him. In the order the judge wrote “since two years there has not been any kind of evidence against Hector Aleem, and those cases were lodged against him due to the personal enmity of the plaintiff so he is now released from these three cases”. But he is still in jail due to that Blasphemy charge and some other cases which are still being processed. We are 1000% sure that our father Hector Aleem will be released from these other criminal cases too as they are all at the end and there is no evidence against him. But that Blasphemy case is still very dangerous because it carries death penalty if convicted. Blasphemy case is also at the end, and there are only final arguments left. But the judge who was processing the Blasphemy case has been changed, we don’t know if he has been changed by the government or what but the new judge is about to come. We don’t even know the name of that new judge and that’s why the processing has been delayed till 4th December 2010. Our lawyer is doing an awesome job but he is asking for the fee. We paid him a lot, but still he is asking for the fee and I think that he will continue to ask for the fee until our father is released from jail. Sunni Tehreek (A terrorist organization) announced that to all lawyers that “a person who take the case of Hector Aleem will be killed”. Now all other lawyers are afraid to take the case of Hector Aleem, there was another person from Pakistan who is a lawyer and was a member of this group agreed to take the case our father but when he saw the danger of Mullahs and that terrorist organization Sunni Tehreek, he refused to help us. Our current lawyer is the only lawyer in whole Pakistan who is brave enough to take our father’s case and says “my life and profession are in danger due to your case that’s why you will have to pay me whatever I ask you to pay, and if you wont pay me….I will stop working and will resume working when you will pay me” So we are in this situation. It all happened in front of you, nothing was happening when this group was started in April 2010 but now things are changing. You all have supported us this far, we need your support once again and hopefully when this time we will pay our lawyer his fee…our father will be released thanks to all of you. The example of Asia Bibi is in front of you, she is convicted and is about to be hanged to death. There are many protests going on in Pakistan against Asia Bibi and all Blasphemy victims, Mullahs want to kill them all. Because of this the heat on our father’s case is increasing. And there are 99% chances that Mullahs will gather outside daddy’s court again and will try to do something bad. So please don’t let the same thing happen to daddy like it happened to Asia Bibi. We are all very scared of this Blasphemy tension which is rising in Pakistan. Please pray for our father, pray for his safety and his release. Also please donate for our father Hector Aleem so that we can give that money to the lawyer and he will start his work again. You can donate any amount, even a few dollars helps. If you want to donate through pay pal then follow the link below and if you want to donate through snail mail then contact the Shouman who is in the Admin list. And if you want to donate through Western Union then you can contact Mehwish Aleem in the admin list. Some people might not like it but we desperately need your help. We also want to give daddy some warm clothes he doesn’t have warm clothes and Christmas is near you can send him some Christmas cards and encourage him but remember nothing should be written against Pakistan or Islam.

Thank you everyone,

The Bangkok Post gave that headline to an interview with Jean-Paul Laborde, who heads the U.N.’s Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force Office. Click the link above to read the article, i am digging for coprolites.
yet to be eradicated
How do you hope to eradicate terrorism without eradicating those who perform it and those who direct them to perform it?
lots of security
A balloon compressed at any point expands wherever it is not compressed. It is not possible to secure every potential soft target 24/7/365.
law enforcement efforts
Terrorism is not a law enforcement issue, it is one component of warfare. Since it is inspired by sanctified doctrine and directed by both state and non-state entities, it must be combated on two battlefronts: ideological and military. Whenever you arrest or kill one terrorist, others will come forward to replace him.
We do not control the schools in Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria or Iran. Their text books are not printed in our language. We can not dictate what content they inculcate or how they inculcate it. The suggestion that it can be done demonstrates the rare height of arrogance achieved by bureaucrats.
Schools in Islamic nations teach the sanctity, necessity & divine obligation of terrorism because they are Islamic. They teach the contents of the Qur’an, Sunnah & Sira because those texts define & exemplify Islam. If you want to do something about that, eliminate Islam.
promotion of tolerance
We stupidly tolerate Islam, which seeks to destroy or dominate us; there is no better sign of civilizational insanity. Islam does not tolerate us because intolerance is ordained by Allah in his book and Moe in his Sunnah. You can not inject tolerance into Islam because Allah said “whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him” [3:85] Moe said “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.'”. [Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387]
protection of human rights
Such as our right to live, secure in our persons and property; or the Muslim’s ‘right’ to kill, enslave, rape, pillage and plunder. Moe said something about that in the hadith cited above, so I will quote the entire saying here. Read it slowly; let the full meaning sink in.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”
ordered to fight the people
What could possibly be less tolerant than that?
till they say
Freedom of religion, anyone?
then their blood and property will be sacred to us
Our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims until we become Muslims. Life? liberty? Property? Kiss them goodbye if you will not eliminate Islam from the earth. Its open season on us so long as Islam exists.
has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have
Only Muslims have rights. Got a clue yet??
Slowly bleeding to death, sending our soldiers to fight an invisible enemy with suicidal rules of engagement is not sustainable. Random pat downs & body scans are not sustainable. Waiting for the next bomb to detonate is not sustainable. Constant terror is not sustainable. Paying tribute is not sustainable. What did President Jefferson do?
regional and international cooperation
You might begin by adopting Israel’s airline security tactics and continue by accepting her check points and security wall instead of condemning them.
There is one terrorist group: Islam.
proper Islamic teaching
Islamic teaching consists of the Qur’an, Sunnah, Sira & Fiqh, exactly what they are teaching now: the ‘religious obligation’ to hate & exterminate Jews and conquer the entire world. Anything that contradicts the Qur’an & Sunnah will not be accepted, it will be rejected as bida.
The next coprolite incorporates the questioner’s false premise which is included and italicized.
How do you balance recognition of expression of religious freedom and prevention of radicalism, especially in grass-roots education?
We need to promote a culture of peace and of tolerance.
While we speak about freedom of religion, we must address issues of tolerance to respect diversity.
The right to practice one’s religion is restricted to Muslims. Where Allah’s writ runs, Jews & Christians are forbidden to build or maintain houses of worship, display crosses, ring bells, pray aloud in public and hold public processions & funerals. They are not permitted to own or carry weapons, use saddles or testify in court against a Muslim.
The practice of Islam involves obedience to Allah & emulation of Moe. It is inseverable, not a la carte. Allah commanded: “fight them until“. Jihad is an integral part of the practice of Islam. It can not be ignored, neither can it be stricken from the Qur’an. Believers fight in Allah’s cause, killing others and being killed. [9:111] This little sample of fiqh may help you to comprehend the fatal fact.
culture of peace and of tolerance
As already demonstrated, peace & tolerance are polar opposites of Islam. They won’t fit and can’t be forced.
The insurgency in southern Thailand is Islamic. Islam is transnational, it crosses borders freely. U.N. bureaucrats are neither intelligent enough nor honest enough to acknowledge that fact.
Terror is a psychological condition, imposed as a battle tactic for the purpose of rendering a victim incapable of mounting an effective defense. When stung by a wasp, do you settle for killing the offending wasp? No, you destroy the nest so that you will not be stung again. Islam is the source of terrorism. Allah said “I will cast terror“. Allah commanded Muslims to maximize the strength of their army to “strike terror” in their enemies. Allah cast terror, resulting in the death, enslavement and dispossession of local Jewish settlements. Moe bragged that: “I have been made victorious with terror“.
It is not possible to fight terror, you must fight its source: Islam. Believers are motivated by Allah’s promise of eternity in the celestial bordello and threat of eternity in the fire. So long as there are Islamic believers , there will be terrorism. You have three choices:
- make them stop believing
- make them stop breathing
- suffer continued torment and eventual defeat & enslavement.
GA Third Committee Revised Draft Resolution “Combating defamation of religions”Development [Eye on the UN]
The link is to an earlier version, prior to the substitution of vilification for defamation. The Volokh Conspiracy indicates that it was the more recent amended version which was approved.
76–64 with 42 abstentions.
81–55 with 43 ’09 26
-5 9 -1
Many of the news reports mention the decreasing level of support for the resolution. So it got five fewer votes in favor and nine more in opposition. Big deal, it still passed. While the trend is encouraging, it is not satisfying.
The U.N.’s press release is ambiguous, leaving uncertainty about the identity and content of the draft which was voted on.
L.32/Rev.1 Elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief Oral revision not reflected in this version.
may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion
or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned;
7. Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and wrongly
associated with human rights violations and terrorism; [combating defamation / vilification of Islam]
These similar provisions fly in the face of the Qur’an’s five explicit and two implicit references to casting terror and two statements by Moe in which he bragged about winning with terror. Have any of these idiots read The Qur’anic Concept of War? Why would a Pakistan army training manual use such language?
a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into
the opponent’s heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be
achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet
and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon
the enemy; it is me decision we wish to impose upon him.
conformity with international human rights law, the freedom of all persons and
members of groups to establish and maintain religious, charitable or humanitarian
institutions is fully respected and protected;
The obvious connection with the Holy Land Foundation trial can not be ignored. Zakat of 2.5% is assessed on wealth and transactions. 1/8 of zakat is allocated to those “fighting in Allah’s cause”.
understanding, tolerance, non-discrimination and respect in all matters relating to
freedom of religion or belief by encouraging, in the society at large, a wider
knowledge of different religions and beliefs and of the history, traditions, languages
and cultures of the various religious minorities existing within their jurisdiction;
This provision is an obvious demand that our schools be used to indoctrinate students with hagiographic images of Islam, falsely portraying it as a “religion of peace” They are waging war against us, trying to out breed & subvert us and we are supposed to tolerate it. Yeah, right. We are supposed to respect a war cult whose members believe that they have a divine mission to conquer us. Yeah, right.
This vote by the third committee sets the stage for final passage by the General Assembly next month. That will give Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan and others immoral support for the local laws used to persecute minorities.
On a parallel track, running under the radar, the HRC’s Ad Hoc Committee on the Elaboration of Complementary Standards is working on a protocol to inject the resolution’s provisions into ICERD, giving them the force of international law. Few know about this, nobody is doing anything to stop it. Now is the time to rise up and raise Hell! For liberty’s sake, sign, publicize, promote and share this petition: International Qur’an Petition.
I had seen reports that the draft resolution on Combating Defamation of Religions had been edited to substitute vilification for defamation but I had not seen substantive details prior to last night. One of my Google Alerts linked to an article which included a link to the amended resolution.
What is the big deal? The State Department asserts that the USA rejects resolution on the basis of the concept of defamation of religions. I presume that the edit is an attempt to throw a lifeline to Obamination. Recall that while Obamination rejects defamation, he accepts negative stereotyping, which was substituted for defamation in the Freedom of Opinion and Expression resolution. The OIC is tinkering with the semantics in hopes of sinning over some of the nay sayers and obstainers to their side.
None of the resolutions define the crucial terms, so I checked the on line dictionaries. A Google search turned up fifteen definitions of defamation.
- Seven definitions specify that the victim is a person.
- Four definition specify that the statement must be false.
- Six definitions list slander as an element.
- Five definitions list libel as an element.
- Two definitions list calumny as an element.
- One of the definitions lists vilification as an element.
- Three of the definitions list malicious as an element.
Next, I looked up vilification, receiving four results.
- Two definitions listed defamation as an element.
- One definition listed calumny as an element.
- One definition listed slander and libel as elements.
Next, I looked up negative stereotyping , striking out. Removing the adjective resulted in fifteen definitions. These are the best of the lot.
- A stereotype is a commonly held public belief about specific social groups, or types of individuals. The concepts of “stereotype” and “prejudice” are often confused with many other different meanings. …
- stereotype – pigeonhole: treat or classify according to a mental stereotype; “I was stereotyped as a lazy Southern European”
- stereotype – a conventional or formulaic conception or image; “regional stereotypes have been part of America since its founding”
To determine the meaning of those terms, as used in the resolutions, we must examine their context.
- Stressing that defamation of religions is a serious affront to human dignity leading to the illicit restriction of the freedom of religion of their adherents and incitement to religious hatred and violence,
Who is defamed? Is Islam a human person? How does illustrating the cause–effect relationship of Islam to terrorism affront human dignity? If Muslims find their dignity affronted by exposure of the truth about Islam, they can restore their dignity by converting to a pacifist religion.
How does defamation lead to illicit restriction of freedom of religion? The reference is obviously to the Swiss minaret ban and the French Burqa ban. What do minarets have to do with freedom of religion? In ancient times, they were watch towers. Muslims adopted them for the call to prayer. They also serve as a powerful symbol of Islamic supremacy. But they are not mentioned in the Qur’an or hadith as religious requirements.
- You, you the prophet, say to your wives and your daughters and the believers’ women they (F) near (lengthen) on them from their shirts/gowns/wide dresses, that (is) nearer that (E) they (F) be known (better than being identified), so they (F) do not be harmed mildly/harmed, and God was/is forgiving, merciful.
If you want to know the real deal, read Sahih Bukhari 1.4.148. Its about Umar hassling Sauda, one of Moe’s wives when she went out to answer a call of nature.
- 14. Reaffirms the obligation of all States to enact the legislation necessary to prohibit the advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence, [Emphasis added.]
That paragraph contains two key phrases which, when compared to certain relevant public statements, give us the final clue.
In plain language, Kofi Annan would have prevented the publication of the cartoons if it was in his power. That is the power they are seeking.
“There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence,” Ban said in a statement. “The right of free expression is not at stake here.”
The Secretarys General told us that the Danish Cartoons did not respect Islamic religious beliefs and that Geert Wilders’ documentary constituted hate speech and incitement to violence.
The cartoon of greatest concern depicts Moe with a bomb in his turban, implying that he was a terrorist. Moe never had a bomb because he died prior to the invention of gunpowder. But he was a terrorist, by his own admission:
- Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey. [Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331, Emphasis added.]
- I have been made victorious with terror [ Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220, Emphasis added.]
The hate speech and incitement in Fitna come from the Qur’an and clerics, not from Geert Wilders.
Lets get down to the real issue of defamation, negative stereotyping. ¶ 24 contains a 28 item enumerated list. The seventh item is of interest.
- 7. Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;
Fitna and the Motoons display that association; what is wrong with it? Re-examine the quotes from Bukhari’s collection of authentic sayings. Moe said that he won by terrifying his victims. The Qur’an is not silent about this issue.
- 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers).
We shall terrorize the disbelievers. Click the link and read the context, it is one of aggressive conquest.
- 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.”
What did Allah say he would do? What did he order the angels to do? After reading this appetizer from Tafsir Ibn Kathir, click the link and read the entire passage.
- Ar-Rabi` bin Anas said, “In the aftermath of Badr, the people used to recognize whomever the angels killed from those whom they killed, by the wounds over their necks, fingers and toes, because those parts had a mark as if they were branded by fire.”
- 8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.
Compare the last clause in 8:57 to the last clause in 59:2. The objective is to build a reputation for brutality; you will see the application in 59:13.
Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.
Build the biggest army you can to strike terror. What is the “cause of God”? [hint] Now we get down to the practical application of those verses.
- 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.
33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.
What did Allah say he would do? What did he do? What resulted? Moe and his army killed the men of one tribe and enslaved their widows and orphans. But, of course, Islam has no connection to terror and human rights violations. Its the religion of peace.
- 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).
What did Allah do to the Bani An-Nadir? What is the meaning of the admonition? Can you relate that to the lesson of 8:57?
- 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allâh).
The Jews fear Muslims more than they fear Allah. Why is that? Can you make the connections with 8:57 & 59:2? How did Allah cast terror into their hearts?
Those Muslims are supremely arrogant; they assume that we are ignorant, gullible fools who will believe anything if it is repeated with sufficient frequency. “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”. Islam’s scripture and tradition inform us that the statement from ¶ 24.7 is an accursed lie. They want to base international law on that lie, criminalizing revelation of the fact that it is a lie!
The true source of Islamic blasphemy law is Reliance of the Traveller. Observe the penalty for apostasy.
When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.
In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.
Apostates are killed. What acts warrant their death? Reliance lists twenty, these are particularly relevant.
- o8.7: Acts that Entail Leaving Islam
(O: Among the things that entail apostasy from Islam (may Allah protect us from them) are:
- -4- to revile Allah or His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace);
-5- to deny the existence of Allah, His beginingless eternality, His endless eternality, or to deny any of His attributes which the consensus of Muslims ascribes to Him (dis: v1);
-6- to be sarcastic about Allah’s name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat;
-7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it;
-16- to revile the religion of Islam;
-17- to believe that things in themselves or by their own nature have any causal influence independent of the will of Allah;
-18- to deny the existence of angels or jinn (def: w22), or the heavens;
-19- to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law;
-20- or to deny that Allah intended the Prophet’s message (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be the religion followed by the entire world (dis: w4.3-4) (al-Hadiyya al-`Ala’iyya (y4), 423-24). )
How do those rules apply to us as disbelievers? When disbelievers are conquered and subjugated as dhimmis under Islamic supremacy, they are obligated by a treaty of protection. That treaty is violated if they perform certain acts listed in Reliance. Guess what the penalty is.
The agreement is also violated (A: with respect to the offender alone) if the state has stipulated that any of the following things break it, and one of the subjects does so anyway, though if the state has not stipulated that these break the agreement, then they do not; namely, if one of the subject people:
-5- or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam.
When a subject’s agreement with the state has been violated, the caliph chooses between the four alternatives mentioned above in connection with prisoners of war (o9.14).
When an adult male is taken captive, the caliph (def: o25) considers the interests (O: of Islam and the Muslims) and decides between the prisoner’s death, slavery, release without paying anything, or ransoming himself in exchange for money or for a Muslim captive held by the enemy.
When the resolution is voted out of the third committee and passed in the General Assembly, it will not have the force of law, but it will add unwarranted legitimacy to existing blasphemy laws which are used to persecute religious minorities in several Islamic nations.
Unfortunately, that is not the real threat to our liberty. This is: Ad Hoc Committee on the elaboration of complementary standards. The cmte. will meet at the end of November for a week and a few days. Its purpose is to insert the resolution into ICERD through a binding protocol, giving it the force of international law. Last year, the cmte. bogged down in procedural matters. We have no way of knowing when it will finish its work, but when it does, we will be outvoted and the protocol will become law.
Several blog posts about the ad hoc cmte. have been compiled.
- Ad hoc cmte Draft Document
- Ad hoc cmte on complementary standards:
The resolution will be voted on in the cmte., the vote is expected to happen Monday or Tuesday. The General Assembly vote should happen in December. Several human rights organizations are lobbying against it, but with little hope of success. Besides signing the petition posted by Open Doors, there is not much we can do about it.
Our best tactic is a counter attack: to raise the political cost of censoring us above Islam’s threshold of pain. As I showed you their egregious lie and proved it above, you can share that information with others. Copy and cross post this blog post. Paste it into emails. Tell everyone who will listen about the injustice being perpetrated by the OIC.
Three international human rights covenants contain provisions which would, if enforced, require that Islam be proscribed by law. The purpose of the International Qur’an Petition is to bring the vital facts to the attention of the public and the World Court. Please sign it and spread it. Cross post it on your blog or web site. Send it by email to everyone you can hope to influence.
Yahoo News carried an AP story claiming that the U.S. put our pledge not to demand further construction freezes in writing. No mention was made of the other elements of the incentive package being reduced to writing. We already know from experience that a vocal promise is not worth the paper it is not written on. I would not put stock in a written promise from President Obama.
It turns out that the advanced jet deal is a sale, not a donation and the delivery date is not fixed. That sort of open promise has no value because the Congress may scrap the program before the aircraft are built.
The one year limit on the veto promise reduces its value to zero. Abbas & co. need only refuse to negotiate and delay for a year before going to the Security Council.
Lets get down to the critical false premises in the article.
They are constructing homes, additions and apartments, not building new settlements. Jews lived on that land for thousands of years prior to caliph Umar’s conquest; and prior to Jordan’s illegal seizure in 1948; there is no good reason why they should not live there now. There is no good reason why Judea & Samaria should be judenrein.
They do not specify east Jerusalem, they demand Jerusalem as their capital. There is no legal, moral or historical basis for that demand. Only the Jews have mxsade that city their capital. From Umar’s conquest to 1948, the Muslims never gave a damn about Jerusalem; they never made it a capital. Why now?
Recall Arafat’s slogan: “One million martyrs marching to Jerusalem.” ? Why is that city worth a million lives to them? It ain’t Moe’s nightmare. Their interest is proscriptive. Islamic conquest is meant to be permanent. Israel’s recovery of the city proves that Allah is an impotent idol.
Recall Arafat’s slogan: “From the River to the sea.”? Those are the borders of Falestine, Israel is to be eliminated. They don’t want a state besides Israel, they want a vilayet in a restored caliphate, not a state.
Muslims will not negotiate peace with Israel because Muslims want conquest, not peace.
o9.16 […] Interests that justify making a truce are such things as Muslim weakness because of lack of members or materiel, or the hope of an enemy becoming Muslim, for the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made a truce in the year Mecca was liberated with Safwan ibn Umayya for four months in hope that he would become Muslim, and he entered Islam before its time was up. If the Muslims are weak, a truce may be made for ten years if necessary, for the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made a truce with Quraysh for that long, as is related by Abu Dawud. It is not permissible to stipulate longer than that, save by means of new truces, each of which does not exceed ten years. […]
Jer 6:14 They have healed also the hurt [of the daughter] of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when [there is] no peace. [KJ.V. Emphasis added.]
If there are any men left in Israel who are not deracinated, let them rise up as one, shouting with a loud voice: “NO!”.
I am a Muslim But I don’t Hate the Great America By King Nazir Muhammad comes to us through News Blaze.
One Muslim who loves America because of its freedom & prosperity is not proof that all Muslims love America. Implying that it does involves over generalization.
There is a reason why Muslims in Arabia can not enjoy liberty and prosperity: Islam and tyranny. If enough Muslims emigrate here, they will bring those troubles with them as they are doing in Europe. The solution to their problem is not emigration, it is revolution. In 1776, our founders did something unprecedented, they removed the ancient regime and replaced it with a representative republic with enumerated powers specified by a written constitution. They outlawed theocracy and installed liberty. In doing so, they pledged their lives, fortunes and honors; many lost everything. They planted the tree of liberty and watered it with their blood.
If Muslims want liberty and prosperity, they must first shed the shackles of slavery. Allah’s slaves are not free, they wear Allah’s yoke and are compelled to follow his rules in every aspect of life. The first prerequisite is apostasy.
The second prerequisite is no less life shaking or risky. They can not remain enslaved to patriarchal, military or feudal regimes and be free and prosperous. In most cases, violent revolution will fail. Genuine regime opponents, seeking to remove, not supplant the regimes, need to unify, multiply, and work within the political system to reform it. Change will be incremental, slow, and not immune to reversals.
Indigenous Muslims need to begin studying economics, political science and comparative government. To be successful, they must adopt what works in other systems and carefully reject that which leads to failure. The horrific errors made by Afghanistan & Iraq should provide negative guidance.
Islam had a negative image in the perception of John Q. Adams and other American founders. Our navy developed as a result of attacks by the Barbary Pirates. It is reality, not image or reputation that is important. While terrorists may not represent all Muslims, they represent Islam, obeying Allah and emulating Muhammad. Open your Qur’an and read Surah Al-Anfal 12, 57 & 60. Then turn to Surah Al-Ahzab 26-27. Turn next to Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220. The problem is that Islam is an inseverable, take it or leave it package; refer to Surah Ar-Ra’d 36. If you loathe terrorism, you must disassociate from Islam to avoid being a part of it.
Islam is not radical, it is a violent predator, by design. If reformed, it would cease to be Islam. Unfortunately, it can not be reformed. How do you reform perfection? How do you reform a scripture and system that is fixed and immutable? Reformers would like to strip conquest, genocide & terrorism from the Qur’an. But Muhammad said that those who try it will be far, far from mercy . He also said that if you abandon jihad as a way of life, that you will be cursed until you return to it.
Unfortunately, you can do neither. You don’t have the power to ban Islam, and you can change only your own beliefs. Can you, as a confirmed lover of freedom, inspire other Muslims with that same love, and convince them of the existential conflict between Islam and freedom? If you can do that, perhaps you can ignite the spark of liberty and send it burning through the Ummah.
Fearmongering about Sharia law in America needs to stop
I did not find the article to be rich in substance, but a few points need to be raised.
What if? Suppose there was a technical error in the appeal, causing the original verdict to be upheld? What if the appeals court failed to recognize the lower court’s error? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
After the negligence comes the sarcasm.
A student, occupied with learning and passing exams, can be forgiven for being ignorant of Islamic doctrines & practices, but not for assuming that he knows everything about the subject. I was ignorant of Islam when I was a student, but I have learned a great deal in the last ten years. Islam’s strategic objective is total world domination: making the entire human race slaves of Allah. Islam does not recognize man made legislation, it demands the imposition of Shari’ah, derived from the Qur’an & Sunnah.
Basing American court decisions on the American Constitution, legislation & case law is not “bad public policy”, it is common sense. There is a dangerous level of ignorance about Shari’ah. That ignorance can be corrected by reading Reliance of the Traveller, Noah Ha Mim Keller’s translation of Umdat Al-Salik, the Shafi’ite school’s handbook of Fiqh. The text includes certificates of authenticity and accuracy from scholars at Al-Azhar.
In England, Shari’ah courts deal mainly with family law. Safe, sane and simple; no threat there, right? Wrong!!! Book m treats of the laws of marriage. Lets examine a sample.
m3.13: Guardians Who May Marry a Virgin to a Man Without Her Consent
Guardians are of two types, those who may compel their female charges to marry someone, and those who may not.
-1- The only guardians who may compel their charge to marry are a virgin bride’s father or father’s father, compel meaning to marry her to a suitable match (def: m4) without her consent.
-2- Those who may not compel her are not entitled to marry her to someone unless she accepts and gives her permission.
Whenever the bride is a virgin, the father or father’s father may marry her to someone without her permission, though it is recommended to ask her permission if she has reached puberty. A virgin’s silence is considered as permission.
As for the nonvirgin of sound mind, no one may marry her to another after she has reached puberty without her express permission, no matter whether the guardian is the father, father’s father, or someone else.
So much for the minimum legal age. So much for choosing your own lifetime mate. Book n treats of divorce. Who can do it?
Divorce is valid from anyDivorce is valid from any
Divorce is valid from any:
(b) who is sane;
(c) has reached puberty;
(d) and who voluntarily effects it.
A divorce is not valid from:
-1- (non-(c) above) a child;
-2- (non-(b) ) someone insane;
-3- or (non-(d) ) someone who is wrongfully coerced to do it, as when one is threatened with death, dismemberment, being severely beaten, or even mere verbal abuse or a slight beating if the person being coerced is someone whose public image is important and would thereby suffer. (O: Someone being forced should use words that give a misleading impression (def: r10.2) for his ostensible “divorce.”)
A free man has three pronouncements of divorce (O: because of the word of Allah Most High,
“Divorce is two times, then retain with kindness or graciously release” (Koran 2:229),
and when the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) was asked about the third time, he said.
“It is Allah’s having said, or graciously release”’).
The words that effect a divorce may be plain or allusive. Plain words effect the divorce whether one intends divorce by them or not, while allusive words do not effect it unless one intends divorce by them.
n3.2 Using plain words to effect a divorce means expressly pronouncing the word divorce (O: or words
derived from it). When the husband says’ “I divorce you,” or “You are divorced,” the wife is divorced
whether he has made the intention or not.
(A: Here and in the rulings below, expressions such as “The wife is divorced,” or “The divorce is effected,” mean just one of the three times (def: n9.0(N:) ) necessary to finalize it, unless the husband thereby intends a two-or threefold divorce (dis: n3.5) or repeats the words three times.)
Let divorce cases be handled by Shari’ah courts; great idea, ladies? How about honoricide? Book o treats of “justice”. o.1 details retaliation for death or injury. There are certain cases in which no retaliation is due. Here they are.
The following are not subject to retaliation:
-1- a child or insane person, under any circumstances (O: whether Muslim or non-Muslim.
The ruling for a person intermitently insane is that he is considered as a sane person when in his right mind, and as if someone continously insane when in an interval of insanity. If someone against whom retaliation is obligatory subsequently becomes insane, the full penalty is nevertheless exacted. A homicide committed by someone who is drunk is (A: considered the same as that of a sane person,) like his pronouncing divorce (dis: n1.2) );
-2- a Muslim for killing a non-Muslim;
-3- a Jewish or Christian subject of the Islamic state for killing an apostate from Islam (O: because a subject of the state is under its protection, while killing an apostate from Islam is without consequences);
-4- a father or mother (or their fathers of mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring;
-5- nor is retaliation permissible to a descendant for (A: his ancestor’s) killing someone whose death would otherwise entitle the descendant to retaliate, such as when his father kills his mother.
You can not execute a Muslim for killing a kuffar, an apostate or his own offspring. That’s the law. It should be enforced, of course. It is so much superior to our man made laws. How about the blood money to be paid for murder?
(A: For the rulings below, one multiplies the fraction named by the indemnity appropriate to the death or injury’s type of intentionality and other relevant circumstances that determine the amount of a male Muslim’s indemnity (def: o4.2-6 and o4.13). )
The indemnity for the death or injury of a woman is one-half the indemnity paid for a man.
The indemnity paid for a Jew or Christian is one-third of the indemnity paid for a Muslim. The indemnity paid of a Zoroastrian is one-fifteenth of that a Muslim.
A Muslim woman is worth only one half of her Muslim husband. A Christian is worth only one third as much as a Muslim. What a great system, lets implement it!
Then there is the matter of eligibility to give testimony in court.
Legal testimony is only acceptable from a witness who:
(a) is free;
(b) is fully legally responsible (mukallaf, def: c8.1) (O: as testimony is not accepted from a child or insane person, even when the child’s testimony regards injuries among children that occurred at play);
(c) is able to speak;
(d) it mentally awake;
(e) is religious (O: meaning upright (o24.4) (A: and Muslim), for Allah Most High says,
“Let those of rectitude among you testify” (Koran 65:2),
and unbelief is the vilest form of corruption, as goes without saying);
(f) and who is outwardly respectable (O: respectability (muru’a) meaning to have the positive traits which one’s peers possess in one’s particular time and place. Sheikh al-Islam (A: Zakariyya Ansari) says, “Respectability is refraining from conduct that is unseemly according to standards commonly acknowledged among those who observe the precepts and rules of the Sacred Law.” It is according to standards commonly acknowledged (def: f4.5) because there are no absolute standards for it, but rather it varies with different persons, conditions, and places, Such things as eating and drinking (A: in the marketplace or wearing nothing on one’s head may vitiate it (A: though the latter is of no consequence in our times), as may a religious scholar’s wearing a robe or cap in places where it is not customary for him to do so).
The testimony of the following is legally acceptable when it concerns cases involving property, or transactions dealing with property, such as sales:
-1- two men;
-2- two women and a man;
-3- or a male witness together with the oath of the plaintiff.
If testimony does not concern property, such as a marriage or prescribed legal penalties, then only two male witnesses may testify (A: though the Hanafi school holds that two women and a man may testify for marriage).
Christians can’t testify, nor can menial laborers and it takes two women to give evidence. What a great system! Other schools of Islamic jurisprudence are not exact matches, but are objectionable, none the less. For example, the Maliki’s Risala. Marry off your virgin daughter, unequal blood wit, female testimony, infidel testimony. Is that warm glow of Ivy League superiority holding still holding up?
One senator had words of wisdom about basing rulings on foreign law.
our Constitution mean and what our policies ln America. should be.
International and Foreign Law Sources: Siren Song for U.S. Judges? By Chimène I. Keitner on page ten, cites legislation proposed in 2005 that would limit federal judges to domestic sources except for British common law at the time of the adoption of the Constitution. Justices cited as favoring consideration of foreign law, cited by Chimène I. Keitner. include William Rehnquist, Sandra Day O’Connor,Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Anthony Kennedy. Shari’ah is not mentioned in that article, but the same principle applies.
For the grand finale, lets glance at the temporary injunction.
State Question No. 755, which was on Oklahoma’s November 2, 2010 ballot, provides: This measure amends the State Constitution. It changes a section that deals with the courts of this state. It would amend Article 7, Section 1. It makes courts rely on federal and state law when deciding cases.
It forbids courts from considering or using international law. It forbids courts from considering or using Sharia Law….
“Specifically, plaintiff asserts that the ban on the state courts’ use and consideration of Sharia Law violates the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”
Three elements are listed:
- by Oklahoma’s official condemnation of his religion/faith as reflected through the amendment to Oklahoma’s constitution banning state courts’ use or consideration of Sharia Law,
- by the invalidation of his last will and testament which incorporates various teachings of Mohammed, and
- by the excessive entanglement of the state courts with religion that would result from the amendment as the state courts in implementing the amendment would have to determine what is and is not encompassed in Sharia Law.
- must have a secular legislative purpose,
- its principal or primary effect must be one that neither advances nor inhibits religion, and
- it must not foster an excessive government entanglement with religion.
The amendment specifies the local sources of law and proscribes use of foreign law and Shari’ah. It is unreasonable to equate rejecting Shari’ah as an input to judical decisions with rejection of Islam.
Does any reasonable person believe that the amendment rejects or invalidates the plaintiff’s last will and testament? If his will is probated, it will be subject to state law, regardless of Shari’ah. Book l treats of inheritance. Only one third of the estate can be bequeathed, the rest is divided according to a complex formula. If you are crazy enough to want to figure it out, go to Book l.1.
Entanglement? All the courts need to do under the amendment is perform their duties as they do now, considering the facts, law and constitutions but not Shari’ah. There is no need for the courts to read Reliance, Risala or Hedaya, they just need to do their job. The complaint is obviously unfounded.
The amendment has a constitutional purpose: preserving the primacy of the federal and state constitutions. It neither advances nor inhibits religion, it prevents entanglement the court system with Shari’ah. It does not foster government entanglement with religion, it prevents entanglement.
“Settlements” and construction are not obstacles to peace. Islam is the obstacle to peace. The Jews of the Hijaz rejected Moe’s war cult, so he hated them and made them his first victims after graduating from raiding camel caravans to raiding villages.
The Qur’an & hadith are not silent about Islam’s unending war against Jews.
- 7:167. And (remember) when your Lord declared that He would certainly keep on sending against them (i.e. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment. Verily, your Lord is Quick in Retribution (for the disobedient, wicked) and certainly He is OftForgiving, Most Merciful (for the obedient and those who beg Allâh’s Forgiveness).
Who would Allah send to torture and humiliate the Jews?
- Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2477
Narrated Ibn Hawalah:
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: It will turn out that you will be armed troops, one is Syria, one in the Yemen and one in Iraq. Ibn Hawalah said: Choose for me, Apostle of Allah, if I reach that time. He replied: Go to Syria, for it is Allah’s chosen land, to which his best servants will be gathered but if you are unwilling, go to your Yemen, and draw water from your tanks, for Allah has on my account taken special charge of Syria and its people.
Allah took a special charge of the people of the Levant on Moe’s account. Yeah, right. Moe hated Jews and wanted to attack them.
- 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
Muslims must fight Jews until they are subjugated and extorted.
- Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”
They’ll be killing Jews until Judgment Day.
- 13:41. See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allâh judges, there is none to put back His Judgement and He is Swift at reckoning.
When caliph Umar conquered the Levant in 638, that conquest was permanent and irreversible according to Allah. But the Jews recovered a tiny fragment their patrimony, and another ayat applies.
- 2:191. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
Muslims can’t leave Israel as it is, they must drive the Jews out and reconquer the land. Arafat never negotiated in good faith. Arafat never kept his commitments What makes any fool think that Abbas will?
Shrub made a verbal commitment to Israel; Obama refused to honor it. Obama can not be trusted. Will he put his promises in writing? What happens when that one year veto offer expires? Will those jets be free or will Israel be billed for them? Will they ever be delivered? Obama won’t demand another extension; yeah, right.
Netanyahu made a commitment that there would be no more freezes. He is breaking his word. This means that he can not be trusted. The Security Cabinet should vote the deal down. The Knesset should vote no confidence. At minimum, conditions for holding a cabinet vote should be set:
- The incentive package must be in writing, free of weasel words, strings and escape clauses.
- Abbas and the Arab League members must sign on.
- A date certain for the next negotiating session and follow up schedule should be agreed upon in advance.
Islamic doctrine and past performance indicate that the whole thing is a sham; peace is impossible. if peace was possible; if the negotiations had any intrinsic merit, there would be no need for incentive plans. The fact that incentives are offered proves that the whole process is meretricious. The demand for a construction moritorium must be rejected.
Who wants to be strip searched or frisked? Very few I’m sure. Who wants to go down in flames or have flaming debris fall on their house? Fewer still, I am sure. The time is ripe to throw political correctness to the winds and adopt a more reasonable policy.
We know who wants to hijack and crash aircraft. We know who has done it in the recent past. Lets just ban them from all mass transit. Problem solved. No need for long lines and intrusive searches. Millions of dollars and hours saved. Dignity preserved.
The solution is simple: exclude members of the death cult from all mass transit.
While I generally agree with Jordan Sekulow, I have some issues to dissect with his Washington Post OpEd of Nov. 8. If you want to read it all in context, click that link, because I will excerpt and blast what I consider to be the most important points.
Get honest about Islam
That is a great headline, with which I am 100% in agreement. There is nothing more lacking than honesty & candor concerning the doctrines of Islam and the real, proximate & persistent danger it poses to Western Civilization.
It is true that President Obama’s pandering to Islam increases doubts about his own belief system. His bona fides as a Christian are not proven.
Will someone please explain to me how “fighting negative stereotypes about Islam” can be one of President Obama’s official duties? If President Obama converted to Christianity, why does he continue to praise Islam and misrepresent it? Why does he not expose and condemn it as real converts do?
The difference between Joe Camel and al-Qaeda is zealotry, not ideology. Islam is Islam; defined by the Qur’an and exemplified by Muhammad’s extra-Qur’anic words and actions. The Muslim Brotherhood is a subset of Islam and al-Qaeda is a subset of the Muslim Brotherhood. Islam is permanent war.
Allah obligates his slaves to fight in his cause, killing others and being killed, in return for which he promises them eternity in his celestial bordello. Doubters and dissenters are directed to Surah At-Taubah 111. Allah commands them to fight pagans until resistance ceases and only Allah is worshiped on a global scale. The command is recorded in Surah Al-Anfal 39. Allah commands them to wage war against Jews & Christians until we are subjugated and submit to extortion. The command is recorded in Surah At-Taubah 29.
Those are not anachronisms; Moe said: “jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal.” He also said: “Some people from my followers will continue to be victorious over others till Allah’s Order (The Hour) is established.”
Alllah promises Muslims the celestial bordello if they go to war and threatens them will Hell if they refuse. “…If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment… …”O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment. “ So long as Muslims believe those threats & promises, they will continue to be a threat to our life & liberty.
Muhammad bin Abdullah was not an extremist or radical, he was the founder of Islam. He said “fight them until”; “fight those who… until”. He said it in Allah’s name. Get a clue!!! There are no “radical Islamic groups”; there is only Islam. As the wise man wrote, “Its Islam, stupid.”. Nothing exceptional, radical, extreme, perverted or distorted, just Allah’s Gd’d words and Moe’s accursed example.
When we broke away from England, the Barbary Pirates attacked our shipping. Adams & Jefferson asked why. The answer they received from Tripoli’s Ambassador should give you a clue.
Islam is Islam. It is what it is: a war machine. It can not be anything else; it must be eliminated. They can quit being Muslims or they can go to Hell; easy choice, simple solution. Emancipate yourself; don’t be enslaved to Allah anymore. There is no better solution!
The terrorist group is: ISLAM.Allah is not silent about terrorism. He sanctified and commanded it. “We shall cast terror“, “I will cast terror“, “Allah cast terror“, ” so that they may learn a lesson.”, “Then take admonition, O you with eyes“, “to strike terror” . Moe is not silent about terrorism. He bragged about it. “Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey. “I have been made victorious with terror “.
Muslim leaders are not to blame. Islam is to blame. The evil is intrinsic to Islam, by design. It is what it is: a war machine. Since 623, the fruit of Islam has been war. Get a clue.
This is a doctrinal issue, not a leadership issue. What did Allah say? What did Moe do? Allah said “fight them”; Moe sent out extortion letters and followed up with military force. “Its Islam, stupid.”
Islam is the disease, it is not infected. What is the cure for vampirism? What is the cure for rabies? What is the cure for a demonic mandate to conquer, rape, pillage & plunder the entire world?
Before you can speak the truth about Islam, you must learn it. In this blog post, I have provided links to translations of the Noble Qur’an by Hilali & Khan and Abdullah Yusuf Ali. Those links will give you access to the entire Qur’an, read it. If you have some doubt about the translations, go to http://www.quranbrowser.com/ and examine several parallel translations. If you think that is not what it means, visit http://qtafsir.com/ and look up the verses in Tafsir Ibn Kathir. I gave you links to Sahih Bukhari and Sunan Abu Dawud. Navigation links at the top of those pages give you access to two other hadith collections and three translations of the Qur’an. I gave you a link to Reliance of the Traveller, Book o9.8. You can scroll up a few pages and read the legal definition of jihad and the obligation to perform it in every year. If you choose to remain ignorant, don’t blame me when you are enslaved or killed. If we do not eliminate Islam from the world, you will eventually be killed or enslaved. The conflict is existential. Us or them. You choose. I made my choice, and I did what I can to wake you up and wise you up. The rest is up to you.
