The WordPress Forum thread about BNI has been closed, the last word being: “Now that we have descended into pointless name-calling I am closing this thread.”. who “descended into pointless name calling?
It’s really hard to form an opinion of BNI without having read the site.
But the extremist, bigoted, racist views expressed here give a good idea of the kind of whacko it attracted.
Gleaned from the sickening streak of hate this thread contains:
There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim.
I live an work with Muslim people, and find them solid, upstanding people who wish the world no harm.
There are extremists everywhere. They’re the problem, not average Muslims.
The landing page of that blog does not indicate a political or philosophical knowledge of or orientation toward Islam and related issues. The author admits not having enough knowledge to judge BNI, then he launches into the forum participants with argumentum ad hominem. Evidently lettershometoyou is too indolent to search for the Yahoo cache of BNI and see it for himself. Instead of doing due diligence, he launches:
Only one quote is cited: “no such thing as a moderate Muslim”, which is dismissed with the author’s narrow personal experience which he expands by generalization to encompass the ummah-al-Islamiyya. It is evident that the author is unaware of Allah’s Qur’anic injunctions against equal and inferior relationships with Kuffar. Muslims are strictly prohibited from being friends with disbelievers except to deceive them for their own personal safety if a threat is perceived.
Allah prohibited His believing servants from becoming supporters of the disbelievers, or to take them as comrades with whom they develop friendships, rather than the believers. […] (unless you indeed fear a danger from them) meaning, except those believers who in some areas or times fear for their safety from the disbelievers. In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, but never inwardly. For instance, Al-Bukhari recorded that Abu Ad-Darda’ said, “We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.” Al-Bukhari said that Al-Hasan said, “The Tuqyah is allowed until the Day of Resurrection.”
Islam is not moderate, it is genocidally violent, by design. To fully comprehend the fatal fact, one must read the following citations from Islam’s canonical texts.
- Sunan Abu Dawud 38.4390
- Sahih Bukhari 1.8.367
- Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9
- Hedaya Volume II, Book IX, Chapter 1
Moe divided Muslims into two classes: believers and hypocrites. Those who implement Allah’s genocidal imperatives are believers, those who shirk jihad are hypocrites. Do not take my word for this, I am not an authority; take Allah’s word for it, and Moe’s. Believers fight in Allah’s cause, killing others and being killed. The rest are either hypocrites in whose hearts is a disease or have not been called to fight yet.
Lettershometoyou followed up with another post:
Evidently lettershometoyou is omniscient, knowing what everybody wants while we are “extremists […] haters […] spreading lies”. How will he explain the conquests of Arabia, India, Turkey, North Africa and South East Europe? How did a tiny minority of extremist Muslims conquer nearly half the world without majority support?
Lettershometoyou angered an EDL member, trinovante, who responded in kind.
@lettershometoyou,by god you are a fool !
You CLEARLY know nothing of Islamic history,the Qur’an or Hadith you odious
little man.Still you have some “Muslim’s who you work with”,so you must know
everything about Islamic doctrine?
You dangerous left wing idiot.
The thread ended with one last left wing slur which I will not quote here. I fully understand why WordPress is sensitive about this issue and wants to squelch discussion of it. Succumbing to intimidation to shut down a major traffic generator must be very painful. If name calling was an issue, the forum moderator would have deleted the four offending posts and allowed the thread to continue.
I did a little research on BNI and found some interesting statistics for the blog.
* These numbers are so unrealistic that I presume they apply to the entire WordPress domain, not to a single sub domain blog.
117,087 page views/month
Those numbers ain’t trivial. Even if we accept the lowest evaluation, a sub domain name worth nearly $500,. is too good to waste if it is bringing 100K visitors to WordPress every month. At snooper.wordpress,com, the post about BNI received 25 page views, while the average daily page views for the blog has been less than 20 this week. At Islam Exposed, it got 16 hits. Page ranks for searches for Bare Naked Islam ranged from 9 to 45 in the Google serps. The post at Bloggersbase had 125 views.
If three thousand people are learning the truth about the doctrines & practices of Islam every day, its no wonder that CAIR is determined to silence it. But the blog’s creator is dedicated, motivated & persistent. She will rebuild the blog, bigger and better than before and the publicity resulting from CAIR’s intimidation tactics will increase the size of the blog’s audience.
Google Alerted me to a Pat Dollard post announcing that Bare Naked Islam has been pulled down again; Dollard included the text of a CAIR press release announcing their great victory.
A new WordPress Forum thread has been opened for the subject. I urge other WordPress users to add your own comments urging WordPress to show spinal & testicular fortitude and respect for free speech by reinstating BNI.
BNI aggregated news stories and particularly graphic videos from all over the world. Combined with incisive commentary, those videos proved to be valuable tools for exposing the stark reality of Islamic doctrine and practice.
BNI earned a large audience, receiving more hits each day than my blogs get in a year. I view BNI as a colleague, not a competitor. I want one of my favorite sources restored! I know that BNI is seeking a new venue. As soon as I learn that the blog is back, I will publish a link to it.
Islam, because it is a plagiarized fraud, is extremely sensitive to criticism. Muhammad murdered his critics. CAIR can’t get away with that yet, but they can engage in intimidation & litigation jihad. BNI stands up to them, I stand shoulder to shoulder with her. We will not submit; we will not be silent.
Voting is an activity we participate in jointly and severally. Each voter’s decision is diluted by the large number of votes cast, but when the votes are counted, issues are decided and nominees or officers selected based on the numbers of votes cast.
When you cast your ballot in your Presidential Primary or Caucus, cast it on the basis of who is the best potential President, not who is most popular, leads in the polls or has ‘the best chance of winning”.
Candidates rise and fall in the polls on the basis of selective sampling and biased questions. The mass media build up one candidate, only to kick the pedestal from under his feet a few weeks later. Their objective is to insure the re-election of President Obama.
The party insiders, also known as the ‘establishement’ have a win at any cost bias. Their objective is to gain control of the Senate so that they can feather their own nests and line the pockets of their favorite crony capitalists.
Four years ago we let the ‘establishment’ and the media select our nominee. McCain ran an incompetent campaign, and he lost as he richly deserved. Obama did not deserve to win, he won by default because we let others choose our nominee. The best candidates were knocked out in the early primaries because it was said of them that they could not win.
The Iowa Caucuses and early Primaries narrow the field, reducing the options of those who vote later in the season. If you reject the best candidates, we all lose.
If McCain had been elected, we would still be losing in Afghanistan & Iraq, Iran would be busy building their A bomb, the Arab Spring would have sprung and the economy would still be in the septic tank. But all of those problems would be blamed by the media and the talking heads on a false caricature of Conservatism. When we nominate a LibTurd disguised as a Conservative, we degrade the brand, risking the future of the movement. Do not let the ‘establishment’ ‘redefine’ Conservatism by nominating Romney or Perry!
There are two genuine committed Conservatives currently in the race: Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann. At present, they trail in the polls. It is in your power, by ignoring the polls and voting for the best candidate, to keep them in the race, giving others who follow you a chance to vote for the best instead of the worst.
The future of the Republican Party and the nation hangs in the balance. Yours is a heavy responsibility, exercise it with great care. “A white ball elects, a black cube rejects; be careful when voting and make no mistakes.”
MPAC takes a legalistic & libertarian tack against blasphemy laws, asserting that the Qur’an supports open debate, not compulsion. Lets look a little deeper, below the surface of a few crucial citations. [Links added to quotes.]
which I worship, And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship, Nor will ye
worship that which I worship, To you be your Way, and to me mine (109:1-6)
If the Prophet was commanded directly by God to just advise and persuade, who are we as ordinary
human beings to claim a higher mantle of authority and impose our beliefs on others?
2:256 Tafsir Ibn Kathir mentions relation to the Ansar, whose children were among the Banu an-Nadir who were exiled from Medina. Unfortunately, Ibn Kathir leaves the story open ended, I suspect that there was an editing error somewhere along the way. Other tafsirs complete the story and add more details.
Certain women among the Ansar, whose sons died in infancy would swear to raise one who lived as a Jew. Evidently they farmed their surviving sons out to wet nurses among the Banu an-Nadir. When Moe drove the Banu an-nadir from their fortifified settlements [59:2, The End that Bani An-Nadir suffered] some of the Answar offspring opted to remain among the exiled Jews. Their mothers ran complaining to Moe, who revealed 2:256 to fit the occasion. The story finds its fullest explication in these tafsirs:
Mufti Shafi Usmani brings in a related argument not raised by the others in this context: the relationship between non compulsion and jihad, holding that the two are not in conflict.
this verse tells us that there is no compulsion in faith, although the
teaching of jihad and qital (fighting) in Islam appears contrary to this
Looking at this a little carefully, we can find out that the objection
is not valid, since the teaching of jihad and qital in Islam is not to
coerce people into accepting Faith. Had it been so, why would there be
Islamic injunctions of jizyah to provide an umbrella of security for
kuffar (disbelievers) which protects their life, property and honour? […]
It is for this reason that Allah Almighty has ordained that the
fasad created by these people should be removed by jihiid and qitl. So,
killing such people is like the killing of serpents, scorpions and their
Usmani asserts that jihad is for the purpose of eradicating people who cause fitna, not about compelling them to convert to Islam. Note that he claims that jijya provides security for kuffar, protecting their life and property. From whom does jizya protect them? I have three clues for you, and will allow you to draw your own conclusion.
- These people have been informed of the orders about Jiziya. If you desire that there should be peace and security in the world, obey Allah and His Prophet. Thereafter none in Arabia and Ajam (Iran) shall dare cast an evil eye on you. But the rights of Allah and His Prophet can at no time be waived.
If you do not accept these terms and set them aside, I do not need your presents and gifts. In that case, I shall have to wage war (to establish peace and security). Its result would be that the big ones shall be killed in war and the commoners shall be taken prisoners. [Letter to the rulers of Aqaba]
- […]And whoever says: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ saves his wealth and his life from me[…] [Sahih Bukhari 9.92.388]
- Capitation tax is to be imposed upon Kitabees, because this is mentioned in the Koran: and it is in the same manner to be imposed upon Majoosees, as the prophet imposed capitation-tax upon Majoosees.– Capitation-tax is also to be imposed upon the idolaters of ajim (Persia) this is contrary to the opinion of Shafii, for he argues that destruction is incurred by all infidels; but the legality of abstaining from it, in sconsideration of a capitation-tax, with respect to Kitabees, is known from the word of the Koran, and with respect to Majoosees, from the traditions; any others, therefore, than those, (namely idolaters,) remain subject to the original penalty, which is destruction. [Hedaya, Volume II, Book IX, Chapter VIII, Page 212]
In the matter of Surah Al-Kaafiroon, Tafsir Ibn Kathir informs us that the surah was revealed about Kafirs who challenged Moe to swap religions for a year. Rather than a statement of tolerance, it is a statement of rejection and immunity from their shirk. [He commanded His Messenger to disavow himself from their religion completely] Tafsir al-tustari informs us that Surah 109 was abrogated by 9:5; Tafsir al-Jalalayn & Tafsir Ibn Abbas cuncurr, citing the “command to wage war” and “verses of fighting” respectively.
Surah Al-Kaafiroon was # 18 in seqeuence of revelation , Surah Al-Baqarah was # 87, both are abrogated by conflicting ayat in Surah At-Taubah which was next to last in revelation.
Does Surah Al-Isra’ 53-54 forbid compulsion? Perhaps we should examine the context.
17:54. Your Lord knows you best, if He will, He will have mercy on you, or if He will, He will punish you. And We have not sent you (O Muhammad ) as a guardian over them.
17:55. And your Lord knows best all who are in the heavens and the earth. And indeed, We have preferred some of the Prophets above others, and to Dawûd (David) We gave the Zabûr (Psalms).
17:56. Say (O Muhammad ): “Call unto those besides Him whom you pretend [to be gods like angels, Iesâ (Jesus), ‘Uzair (Ezra), etc.]. They have neither the power to remove the adversity from you nor even to shift it from you to another person.”
17:57. Those whom they call upon [like ‘Iesa (Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary), ‘Uzair (Ezra), angel, etc.] desire (for themselves) means of access to their Lord (Allâh), as to which of them should be the nearest and they [‘Iesa (Jesus), ‘Uzair (Ezra), angels, etc.] hope for His Mercy and fear His Torment. Verily, the Torment of your Lord is something to be afraid of!
17:58. And there is not a town (population) but We shall destroy it before the Day of Resurrection, or punish it with a severe torment. That is written in the Book (of our Decrees)
I do not see mention of compulsion or toleration in that context, but I do see a threat of destruction, before the day of judgment. Perhaps you can find something of interest in Ibn Kathir tafsir of 17:53.
Surah Surah Al-Ghaashiyah 21-22 looks swell until we examine the context. Of course, Muslims, who accuse us of “cherry picking” are prone to engage in selectivity.
88:22. You are not a dictator over them.
88:23. Save the one who turns away and disbelieves
88:24. Then Allâh will punish him with the greatest punishment.
Moe is only one who reminds, not a dictator; then comes the exception clause, which MPAC did not cite for us. Allah will punish the disbelievers. Of course, punishment is not coercion. Of course, Ibn Kathir had something to say about that. [The Messenger is only charged with delivering the Message]
(I have been commanded to fight the people until they say La ilaha illallah (none has the right to be worshipped except Allah). So if they say that, they have safeguarded their blood and wealth from me – except for what is rightfully due from it – and their reckoning is with Allah, the Mighty and Majestic.)” Then he recited, (So remind them – you are only one who reminds. You are not a dictator over them -) This is how Muslim recorded this Hadith in his Book of Faith, and At-Tirmidhi and An-Nasa’i also recorded it in their Sunans in the Books of Tafsir. This Hadith can be found in both of the Two Sahihs.
you are not a taskmaster over them (a variant reading [for musaytir] has musaytir, that is to say, [not one who has been] given authority over them) – this was [revealed] before the command to struggle [against the disbelievers]. [Tafsir al-Jalalayn]
Moe can’t make us believe, but he has been commanded to wage war upon us until we recite Shahada. That is a clue for the clueless. Surah Al-Anfal & Surah At-Taubah contain the jihad imperatives refered to above. Because they were among the last to be revealed, they abrogate earlier verses whith which they are in conflict. [2:106 & 16:101 establish the rule of abrogation.] The jihad imperatives are commands to fight idolaters until only Allah is worshiped and people of the book until they are subjugated & extorted.
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.
Those imperatives are codified in Shari’ah, best exemplified by Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9.8 & 9.9. No compulsion? Fighting Arabian pagans until they become Muslim is not compulsion.
I am not arguing with MPAC about the negative impliciations of the “defamation of religions” meme. The points raised fy Freedom House and other critics are valid, based on solid facts and logic. I simply pointed out their practice of kitman: deception by obfuscation. But this subject is raised in the context of two resolutions passed this year by the Human Rights Council and General Assembly.
The name has changed; the language has changed, but the meme has not changed. The OIC & UN have not abandoned “combating defamation of Islam”.
based on religion or belief;
¶5(f) on page 5 of Draft resolution XVII, “Adopting measures to criminalize” is a code phrase for legislation. They are demanding passage & enforcement to establish criminal punishment for publications such as Fitna, the Motoons and this blog post. Remember, Ban Ki-Moon defined the terms for us.
The resolutions demand passage and enforcement of legislation to criminalize criticmsm of Islam. Another resolution, flying below the radar, passed the GA by concensus, without a vote. ¶10, on page 3 of Draft resolution XVIII, emphasizes that Islam must not be equated with terrorism Equation with terrorism fits the defamation meme, and it has not been dropped or abandoned by the UN, it lives on in a concurrent resolution.

pit the principle of freedom of religion against freedom of
expression, said Ambassador Donahoe, rather it combined
them. “We believe that through free expression we are better
able to combat intolerance.”
In response to OIC Journal query on defining what would
constitute incitement to hate, she clarified that in the US there
is a single case where freedom of expression can be restricted
or prohibited by the State, and that is when “incitement to
In this context, she pointed out that the President, the
Secretary of State and several public officials went out on a
limb to publically condemn ‘Burn the Quran Day’ to show
that such abominable acts are not accepted. “When you have
the President, the Secretary of State and public figures jointly
condemning that, it will be more effective than throwing
that pastor in jail. I believe the same is true for the hateful
cartoons (of the Prophet). We should all be joining together
in conveying our disgust with such intolerance.”
“Intolerance” and “incitement to violence” mean: International Burn the Qur’an Day and the Motoons, just as Ban mischaracterized Fitna.
Allah had something to say about blasphemy.
7:37. Who is more unjust than one who invents a lie against Allâh or rejects His Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.)? For such their appointed portion (good things of this worldly life and their period of stay therein) will reach them from the Book (of Decrees) until, when Our Messengers (the angel of death and his assistants) come to them to take their souls, they (the angels) will say: “Where are those whom you used to invoke and worship besides Allâh,” they will reply, “They have vanished and deserted us.” And they will bear witness against themselves, that they were disbelievers.
6:93. And who can be more unjust than he who invents a lie against Allâh, or says: “I have received inspiration,” whereas he is not inspired in anything; and who says, “I will reveal the like of what Allâh has revealed.” And if you could but see when the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.) are in the agonies of death, while the angels are stretching forth their hands (saying): “Deliver your souls! This day you shall be recompensed with the torment of degradation because of what you used to utter against Allâh other than the truth. And you used to reject His Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) with disrespect! ”
10:17. So who does more wrong than he who forges a lie against Allâh or denies His Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.)? Surely, the Mujrimûn (criminals, sinners, disbelievers and polytheists) will never be successful!
Moe’s reaction to criticism is instructive: he had them murdered. I direct doubters & dissenters to List of Killings Ordered or Supported by Muhammad.
It has been narrated on the authority of Jabir that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Who will kill Ka’b b. Ashraf? He has maligned Allah, the Exalted, and His Messenger. Muhammad b. Maslama said: Messenger of Allah, do you wish that I should kill him? He said: Yes. He said: Permit me to talk (to him in the way I deem fit). He said: Talk (as you like). So, Muhammad b. Maslama came to Ka’b and talked to him, referred to the old friendship between them and said: This man (i. e. the Holy Prophet) has made up his mind to collect charity (from us) and this has put us to a great hardship. When be heard this, Ka’b said: By God, you will be put to more trouble by him. Muhammad b. Maslama said: No doubt, now we have become his followers and we do not like to forsake him until we see what turn his affairs will take. I want that you should give me a loan. He said: What will you mortgage? He said: What do you want? He said: Pledge me your women. He said: You are the most handsome of the Arabs; should we pledge our women to you? He said: Pledge me your children. He said: The son of one of us may abuse us saying that he was pledged for two wasqs of dates, but we can pledge you (cur) weapons. He said: All right. Then Muhammad b. Maslama promised that he would come to him with Harith, Abu ‘Abs b. Jabr and Abbad b. Bishr. So they came and called upon him at night. He came down to them. Sufyan says that all the narrators except ‘Amr have stated that his wife said: I hear a voice which sounds like the voice of murder. He said: It is only Muhammad b. Maslama and his foster-brother, Abu Na’ila. When a gentleman is called at night even it to be pierced with a spear, he should respond to the call. Muhammad said to his companions: As he comes down, I will extend my hands towards his head and when I hold him fast, you should do your job. So when he came down and he was holding his cloak under his arm, they said to him: We sense from you a very fine smell. He said: Yes, I have with me a mistress who is the most scented of the women of Arabia. He said: Allow me to smell (the scent on your head). He said: Yes, you may smell. So he caught it and smelt. Then he said: Allow me to do so (once again). He then held his head fast and said to his companions: Do your job. And they killed him.
Killing critics of Islam is not just sunnah, it is Islamic law. I invite doubters & dissenters to examine the relevant passages of reliance of the Traveller, the Shafi’ite manual of fiqh, to verify the fatal fact. A conquered Jew or Christian, remaining in Dar al-Islam as a Dhimmi, who “mentions something impermissible” about Islam, reverts to the status of a prisoner of war who may be killed.

Only two out of twelve articles reflect objective factual reality, the rest swallow the bait. That is not a good sign. Lets sneak around the gate of the defamation meme and examine the core issue. Words have meanings, but Muslims assign their own meanings to common words.We must not assume that those words mean what they say when spoken by Muslims.
The opening of the 15th session of the Human Rights Council was marked by an address from Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, Secretary General of the OIC.
deliberately meant to defame religions as well incite hatred, xenophobia, discrimination and
violence against religions, in particular Islam. The increasing incidents of violence and
discrimination on the basis of religion must not be ignored. We hope that this and other
related issues remain an important priority in the work of the Council.
The most recent and unfortunate in the series of such events was the announcement
pertaining to Bum a Koran Day. It was highly provocative towards the religious sentiments
of Muslims everywhere in the world and must be condemned in the strongest possible terms.
On August 24,2010 I issued a cautionary statement on the plan to burn the Holy Qur’an and
urged the American people as a whole as well as the world community to reject the call of the
Gainesville Church pastor[….]
In this regard all xenophobic campaigns of fear mongering and discriminatory
measures – both in policy and practice – which restrict, prohibit or discriminate against of any
religion such as ban on the constriction of minarets, organization of events that incite hatred
like Burn a Koran Day, and other discriminatory measures must be strongly condemned by
the international community. A recurrence of such events substantiate OIC’s call for a
normative approach to deal with this menace that continues to pose a clear ‘and present danger
to peace, security ‘and stability in the regional as well as the global context. Such acts fuel
discrimination, extremism and mis-perception leading to polarization and fragmentation with
dangerous unintendecl ancl unforeseen consequences.[…]
[…]such events which endanger peaceful coexistence
between nations and create an environment conducive to violence
The first three sentences quoted above are loaded with meaning which must be dissected and examined.
In this case, one event: International Burn The Qur’an Day, which was scheduled for 09/11/10 to commemorate the accursed abomination by highlighting the Qur’an verses which inspired it. The event was called off under intense government pressure.
deliberately meant to
How does anyone know the intention of the event unless it is clearly stated? The stated purpose of the event was to foster awareness of Islamic doctrines and their real world consequences. But Ihsanoglu assigns other intentions which he projects onto the event from afar.
Defamation is false and malicious. What is false about connecting the dots; Allah’s sanctification of terror, his casting terror resulting in death, captivity & dispossession, Moe’s bragging about terror making him victorious and the abominable act motivated by Allah’s imperative, threat and promise?
Pastor Jones was not inciting anyone to do anything more than incinerate the book which inspired the “Magnificent 19”. Nothing was to be said, implied or illustrate to incite anyone to assault Muslims. He issued no war cry or call to arms and implied none.
It is only natural for a nation under attack and threat of attack to hate its attackers and the damnable doctrines which motivate them and inspire them to attempt genocide & politicide. No incitement is needed to make intelligent and informed Americans hate Islam.
People naturally make choices. If we choose to avoid association with and proximity to persons made inimical to us by their ideology, that is discrimination, but it is not evil.
Hating a man for his skin pigment is evil. Hating a man because he adheres to an ideology which enjoins him to kill or enslave you is not evil, it is common sense. Warning people about that ideology and its consequences is not inciting hatred. Hatred is incited by the ideology and the acts it inspires.
When Pastor Jones tried and burned a Qur’an in March of 2011, rioting broke out in Pakistan. The riots were not incited by anything in Gainesville, they were incited by what was preached in the mosques at Jumah Salat. The politicians and media dare not make the connection between the riots and the end of Friday afternoon sermons. Instead, they prefer to blame an unrelated event separated by thousands of miles and several days.
events that incite hatred
Beirut Embassy bombing
USS Cole bombing
London subway bombing
Madrid rail bombing
endanger peaceful coexistence
Trying and burning a Qur’an did not start a war; what did? have you forgotten? When such a threat is issued, why do we lift Satan’s tail and pucker up?
Defamation, while prominently cited, is not the issue. Examine this transcript of remarks by Pakistan’s Ambassador at the 16th session of the HRC.
Mr. Zamir Akram
Thank you Mr. President. On behalf of the OIC countries, I have the
honor to introduce the draft resolution entitled “combating
intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of and
discrimination, incitement to violence and violence against persons
based on religion or belief contained in document L.38.
Mr. President: this resolution addresses a number of
issues over which the OIC has been expressing concern over the years.
having said that, I wish to state categorically that this
resolution does not replace earlier resolutions on combating
defamation. which were adopted by the Human Rights Council and
remain valid. This resolution L.38 is an attempt on the
part of the oic to build consensus on an issue of vital importance
not only to Muslims but to people of all religions and beliefs by
identifying ways and means to deal with the growing problems of
religious incitement and discrimination and incitement to hatred and violence based on
religion or belief.
At the heart of this resolution are a series of practical steps
which need to be taken by states in order to address
this problem. This resolution addresses the core issues in a manner
that is acceptable to all including in a legal sense, thus
seeking to bring all stake holders on board. The OIC has gone
the extra mile to maintain a spirit of constructive engagement with all
partners during this process of consultation.
Our primary objective is to ensure that this text,
which will hopefully be adopted by consensus, will bind us all to the
commitments contained therein and oblige us all to ensure compliance
with its decisions.
Mr. President: Muslims around the world continue to be confronted
with ever increasing instances of intolerance, negative stereotyping,
stigmatization, discrimination and violence on the basis of their religion; Islam.
Objective academic studies reveal that following the end of the cold war, the
pernicious doctrine of a clash of civilizations signaled the start of a narrative that required
the construction of a new enemy to replace the global threat of
Communism with the so-called menace of Islam.
The reprehensible acts of terrorism on September 11,
2001 provided the trigger to unleash the clash of civilizations to the
forefront of global politics. In the general Western view, no
distinction was made between a handful of extremists and terrorists and
the overwhelming majority of peaceful and law abiding Muslims
living around the world. To make matters worse, against the backdrop of
the recent global economic crisis, these fears of Islam and Muslims are
now being manipulated by irresponsible and bigoted Western politicians
to gain political mileage in their countries, unfortunately, with
Terms such as Islamofascists have become common.
Even the Qur’an has not been spared; it has been compared to Hitler’s
Mein Kampf. More recently, it was tried for religious crimes and
burnt. Minarets at mosques deliberately depicted on posters
as missiles, have been banned. There have even been restrictions on
shops selling halal food, while no such restrictions exist on kosher
food outlets which are similar.
There is also increasing discrimination against Muslims in various
parts of the world. They are being subjected to racial profiling
which confronts them with intractable problems at every border where
they are checked and re-checked. Their businesses are repeatedly
scrutinized and their places of worship disallowed or desecrated.
They are made to feel unwelcome in societies where they live as
One prominent politician has recently organized
hearings that seek to put on trial the entire Muslim community and are
obviously designed to stoke fears against Muslims in that
Mr. President, the efforts by the oic to defend
our religion, our holy book and our prophet and our people have
often been misrepresented as being contrary to international human
rights principles and laws, and in particular, rejected as undermining
the freedom of expression or opinion. The reality is different.
It is therefore appropriate in such a position, for us to try and
explain our faith and our principles. I hope, Mr. President, you will
give me a bit of extra time to do so.
Mr. President: the Qur’an lays great emphasis on the
need for religious tolerance as well as freedom of thought and
opinion. In chapter 2, verse 256, the Qur’an states there is no
compulsion in religion. In chapter 18, verse 29, the Qur’an
maintains that truth is from your Lord, so let him who please believe
and him who please disbelieve. As regards freedom of
thought and opinion in Islam, the Qur’an states, in chapter 16, in verse 125 invite
all to the way of your creator with wisdom and arguments that are the
best and most gracious. The Qur’an and the traditions of the holy
prophet also lay emphasis on the treatment of non-Muslims.
According to Prophet Muhammad, (PBUH), he who hurts a non-Muslim
citizen of a Muslim state I am his adversary and I shall be his
adversary on the day of judgment.
Mr. President: it is also instructive for us to know
that we Muslims are not only bound by temporal laws to respect human
rights but by divine enjunctions contained in the Qur’an. The
basic human rights as ordained in the Qur’an include the
rights to life, individual freedom, justice, equality, privacy, association
and basic necessities of life or minimum standard of living. These
obligations also include respect for women, equality among human
beings, freedom of expression, protection from arbitrary imprisonment
and the right to oppose tyranny and injustice. the last sermon of
the prophet (PBUH) is, in itself, a comprehensive charter of human
rights. Islam has even established a complete code for the right
of combatants in war. Measures for the protection of all combatants as
well as homes and property belonging to them.
Mr. President: I have dwelt at length on these characteristics of Islam
because I want to underscore the common principles that underlie our
faith and the requirements of international law including international
human rights and humanitarian law. Indeed, given the tremendous
contributions by Islam in various fields of human activity over
the years, these principles have contributed to the evolution of
the very principles that we are trying to uphold today.
Mr. President, we sincerely believe that that irrespective of our
different cultural backgrounds and traditions, there is a shared
interest for all of us to show respect for each other’s religions and
beliefs as well as to prevent any advocacy of religious hatred and
intolerance, discrimination and incitement on the basis of religion or
The resolution under consideration seeks to achieve
these laudable objectives through a range of actions by states
including administrative steps, measures to criminalize imminent
violence, training and awareness programs, promotion of dialogue and
understanding at all levels. The resolution also calls for
a global dialogue for the promotion of a culture of tolerance and peace
and in this context it decides to convene a panel discussion in the
Human Rights Council. We hope that this resolution will be
adopted by consensus. Before concluding, Mr. President, I would
like to place on record my appreciation for the support and cooperation
of all my colleagues in the oic and in particular, members of
the core group of ambassadors that we set up to work out this
resolution. I have truly benefited from the wisdom and advice and
without their support this text would not have been possible. I
would also like to thank the Secretary General of the oic whose
support and guidance made this resolution possible. In addition I
would like to express my appreciation — my sincere appreciation to all
our partners in the various groups, especially the ambassadors of the
U.S. and the U.K. on behalf of the European Union for their cooperative
and constructive approach. Let me also thank the ambassadors from
the African group, grulac and Croatia for their cooperation and
engagement in this effort. I am glad that this oic initiative has
met with broad cross regional support which will send out a strong
message of unity from this council. Finally I would like to thank
the experts from Pakistan, the U.S., the U.K. and other countries for
their tireless efforts to work out the text of this resolution. I thank
you Mr. president.
Akram’s screed contains numerous lies, which have been dissected in another blog post.
number of issues
The ostensible objection to depicting Moe is idolatry. There are two problems with that. First, Moe ain’t supposed to be the deity, Allah is. Second, nobody would possibly make those cartoons an object of idolatry. The real reason for objecting to their publication is their depicting Moe as a terrorist.
Moe could not have possessed a bomb because he died prior to the invention of gunpowder. Moe cast terror by a series of barbarian attacks, deliberately building a reputation for barbarian repine, so that he was more feared than Allah. Moe bragged about being made victorious by awe & terror. What more do you need to know to make a judgment?
The 15 minute documentary juxtaposes Qur’an verses and ahadith with the rabid rants of Imams at Jumah Salat and resulting acts of terror and rioting. Fitna does not incite violence, it exposes incitement. Fitna: Supporting Documentation 03/27/08 documents the ayat quoted in the documentary. Though words have meanings, we must be aware of the meanings intended by Muslims. HRC 16/18 & Draft resolution XVII appear to concentrate on incitement.
discrimination, hostility or violence, whether it involves the use of print, audiovisual
or electronic media or any other means;
that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence;
(0 Adopting measures to criminalize the incitement to imminent violence

What is it? Am I inciting hatred and violence by exposing the damnable doctrines of Islam which inculcate hatred and incite violence? There is only one way to know the meaning: we must examine recent exemplary statements. This one, by Secretary Ban Ki-moon is dispositive.
According to the Secretary General, Fitna constitutes hate speech & incitement not protected by freedom of expression. From that statement, it is clear tha the intention of HRC 16/18 and Draft resolution XVII is to criminalize all criticism of Islam.
What is the difference between stereotyping and defamation? Because Moe was a terrorist, who commanded Muslims to emulate himself, and because Allah commanded terrorism, Muslims are commanded to obey Allah and because selectivity is prohibited, all Muslims are potential terrorists. To the extent that they are believers in Allah, his promise and his threat, they will eventually participate in an attack. If it were not true, this paragraph would be defamatory. Even though it is true, it is negative and it is stereotyping, condemned by the resolutions. In any case,
Islam is terrorism! Allah sanctified it & engaged in it. Moe bragged about being made victorious by it. To those bigots who who deny the obvious facts previously documented by reference to the Qur’an & hadth, this is defamatory. Previous resolutions condemned associating Islam with terrorism. These resolutions omit that meme, so, has the UN abandoned the defamation meme? HELL NO!!! And I will prove it. Draft resolution XVII ain’t the only resolution passed by acclamation Dec. 19. I know something you don’t know but are about to find out.

or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned;
¶10, on page 3 of Draft resolution XVIII, emphasizes that Islam must not be equated with terrorism, which it is by the testimony of its own deity & founder previously cited. Equation with terrorism fits the defamation meme, and it has not been dropped or abandoned by the UN, it lives on in a concurrent resolution. The suckers have swallowed the bait, hook, line and sinker.
¶12(j), on page 4, belies the assertion that freedom of expression is not threatened.
international standards of human rights, to combat hatred, discrimination,
intolerance and acts of violence, intimidation and coercion motivated by intolerance

particular regard to members of religious minorities in all parts of the world;
For the Morons among my readers, “all necessary and appropriate action” means legislation to combat “incitement to hostility and violence”, which means: Fitna, the Motoons and this blog post.
No doubt the Moronic chorus will begin chanting: “that ain’t in the resolution under discussion”. To which I gleefully reply: Ye Suckers!!! Assumptions make asses of you!
based on religion or belief;
¶5(f) on page 5 of Draft resolution XVII, proves you wrong. “Adopting measures to criminalize” is a code phrase for legislation. They are demanding passage & enforcement to establish criminal punishment for publications such as Fitna, the Motoons and this blog post. Remember, Ban Ki-Moon defined the terms for us.
Legislation to criminalize the publication of Fitna, the Motoons and this blog post will not limit free speech. Yeah, right ;=(
The Real Threat to Freedom: Islam or “Radical Right”?
Rehab’s screed at the Huffington Post names
Congressmen Allen West and Peter King as examples of “Radical
Right” politicians. There is one little problem with that:
“Radical Right” denotes authoritarian and fascist systems and
ideologies such as Nazism. Nazism was National Socialism.
Those two Congressmen are free market capitalists who believe in
limited, constitutional government, not fascism.
Did Rep. West really say that ” Islam is the enemy”
and “Islam is not a religion”?
Ten seconds into this video, West says: “This is not a religion that
you are fighting against, you are fighting against a theo-political
system, a construct –you are fighting against something that has been
doing this thing since 622 A.D. …:
Lowe’s is putting forth a very dangerous argument: that the far right
bigots and the mainstream Muslim voices with their pro-tolerance allies
of all faiths are equal opposites; that those who wish to humanize a
faith community that comprises 25 percent of humanity and those who
wish to demonize them are equal opposites; that the forces of bigotry
and the forces of anti-bigotry are equal opposites. The pervasive
assumption that there is a moral equivalency between the two sparring
sides is a major factor in the rise of Islamophobia in the US. But
Lowe’s goes further than to claim moral equivalency. It actually takes
sides, the wrong side: the side of the bigots.
The purpose of the tv series about Muslims is to
project an image of normalcy for the purpose of lulling us into a
state of apathy and inaction. It is a hagiographic polemic.
The tactic is kitman: deception by obfuscation. Two things
are important: the content and intensity of their faith. The content is
dictated by the Qur’an & hadith. Muslims pose a real,
proximate & continuing threat which varies directly with the
intensity of their faith.
Muslims are promised
that if they fight in Allah’s cause, they will be admitted to
Paradise. If they take any step to injure or enrage disbelievers,
they get extra credit for “deeds of righteousness”.
Muslims are threatened with eternity in the fire
if they shirk jihad. Put yourself in the Muslim’s faith; if
you really believe Allah’s threat and promise, what will you do?
Rejection of Islam is not a function of bigotry or
political extremism, it is a function of knowledge of the doctrines
& practices of Islam About that running complaint,
refer to Front Page Mag’s revelation of CAIR’s intimidation of FOX24.
The forces of bigotry are Islam and political
correctness. Representatives King and
West are among the forces of anti-bigotry. The bigots do not want you
to examine the facts. We want you to
examine and consider the facts contained in Islam’s canonical texts.
The hypocrisy of Congressional Bigotry
Fatwa on Islam brought this video to my attention. I had read a little
about the controversy but had not delved deeply into it. I can’t let
this slide by without a blast of the torch. We find Christopher S.

Istanbul Process: Censorship Through Subterfuge
fall session of the Istanbul Process has concluded; while we await
publication of their report we can reflect on the manifold deceptions
which passed the lips of two participants. I have selected the
most important phrases out of context for criticism.
- Amb. Suzan Johnson Cook’s welcoming address with video:
that will advance respect for religious freedom and religious tolerance
around the world.
It is not possible to advance respect for religious
freedom & tolerance where Allah’s writ runs. There is neither
tolerance nor respect for religions other than Islam in Egypt, Saudi
Arabia and other nations dominated by Islam. The positive
attitudes desired by Amb. Cook do not and can not exist there
because of the doctrines of Islam.
- Non-Muslims are cursed.
Verily, those who disbelieve, and die while they are disbelievers, it
is they on whom is the Curse
of Allâh and of the angels and of mankind, combined.
Say (O Muhammad ) to those who disbelieve: “You will be defeated and gathered
together to Hell, and worst indeed is that place to rest.”
And the Jews say:
‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah
is the son of Allâh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate
the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allâh’s Curse be on them, how
they are deluded away from the truth!
- Only Islam is accepted.
Truly, the religion with Allâh
Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ
except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And
whoever disbelieves in the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, signs,
revelations, etc.) of Allâh, then surely, Allâh is Swift in calling to
And whoever seeks a religion
other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him, and in the

Hillary’s assertion is malignant. Islam demands that all criticism of
Islam be squelched, which is clear in the text of previous HRC & GA
resolutions “Combating Defamation of Religions“.
Reliance of the Traveller defines apostasy with a
list of twenty acts which entail leaving Islam [O8.7]
Those acts include reviling Allah, Muhammad or Islam and denial of any
Islamic law or doctrine. The penalty for apostasy is execution,
specified in the second section of chapter 8. [O8.1]
The same rule and punishment are imposed upon conquered Jews &
Christians living in Dar ul-Islam as Dhimmis: -5- or mentions something impermissible
about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or
The penalty imposed upon a Dhimmi who blasphemes is the same as he
would suffer when captured in battle, one of four choices by the Imam,
death being the first listed. [O9.14]
The OIC demanded prosecution of the publisher of the
Motoons and demanded that the Dutch government block the publication of
Fitna. After the publication, they demanded prosecution. Egypt is
demanding that publication of Wilders’ upcoming book be blocked.

Several of the resolutions make allusion to 19.3, attempting to
stretch 19.3.a to cover Islam. Note that the U.S.A. reserved our
First Amendment right of free expression. Several resolutions
bitterly kvetch about that reservation, demanding its repeal. The HRC
has an Ad Hoc
Committee on Elaboration of Complementary Standards
whose mission is to write a binding protocol which will insert the
provisions of previous defamation of Islam resolutions into one of the
human rights covenants.
Define advocacy of hatred that constitutes
incitement. Exactly what does that expression in 20.2 mean in the real
world. For the answer, we must turn to the Secretary General.
Ki-moon about Fitna:“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.”
According to Ban, the short documentary by Geert Wilders meets the test
of 20.2. There is one little problem: Fitna is an exposure of
incitement, it is not incitement. I direct doubters &
dissenters to this blog post which documents Fitna’s scriptural
citations: The intention of HRC 16/18 is to criminalize Fitna, the
blog post and every criticism of Islam.

not sanctioned by the state — or no religion at all.
Who can argue with the right to belief &
practice of religion? Islam does, and I can, too! The
existence of a right to practice Islam is an impossibility because the
practice of Islam entails genocide, terror,plunder, extortion, &
rape. This fatal fact is fully documented here:

The purpose is permanently frustrated because Islam does not and will
not allow religious freedom or tolerate religions and
discriminates against indigenous religious minorities.
Those flaws are intrinsic to the core of Islam and can not be altered
or removed because Islam can not be reformed.

Indigenous Christians in Egypt & Pakistan will
be charged with blasphemy and persecuted, up to and including execution

intention. Its stated mission is to prevent and punish “negative
stereotyping”, which is substituted for “defamation of religions”,
which was substituted for “defamation of Islam”. A skunk by any other
name will smell as pungent. The resolution reeks, likewise the
clever words with which it is being disguised & promoted, which are
redolent of feces.

about International Burn the Qur’an Day? Did she uphold Rev.
Jones’ right to express his disdain for the damnable doctrines of Islam
by burning a Qur’an? No, she condemned the planned event,
labeling it as hate speech and inciting violence, the same terms she
used to condemn the trial & burning of the Qur’an last March.

There is no step toward religious freedom short of
eradicating Islam. Does Hillary plan to send the Marines to protect
Copts in Egypt? No resolution will protect them! Only
overwhelming force will prevent Muslims from killing members of
Christian minorities in Africa, Arabia & Asia. Nobody
proposes to assemble and apply that force.
Islam can only be eradicated by inducing mass
apostasy. Mass apostasy can only be induced by exposing the Ummah
to the glaring reality of the identity and attributes of Allah, the
character and works of Moe and the horrific crimes against humanity
perpetrated in Allah’s name over the last 14 centuries.
Previous resolutions demanded criminalizing
association of Islam with terrorism, an intrinsic sacrament of which

are not rights bestowed by any government. They are rights endowed by
our Creator within each of us. And therefore, we have a special
obligation to protect these God-given rights.
Only the U.S. government has an obligation to
protect our rights. Res. 16/18 is part of a campaign to
eviscerate our right to free speech. Hillary’s State department is
acting in contravention of the First Amendment.
the practice of anyone’s faith is a threat to the human rights of all
Muslims believe that they have a divine right and religious
obligation to conquer
the entire world, by intimidation & force, including “casting
terror”. That right and obligation is inseverable; Islam
is all or nothing. Muslims who believe “fight in Allah’s cause, killing
others and being killed. Only
those who participate in jihad are believers. Muslims are commanded
to obey Allah and Moe. Allah commanded them to “fight
the disbelievers nearest you“. Open Sahih Bukhari 52 to see what Moe did, which is to
be emulated. Terrorism is an act of worship, intrinsic to the
practice of Islam; Muslims earn Brownie
Points for any step taken to injure or enrage disbelievers.
Hillary just informed us that preventing Muslims
from engaging in terrorism is an infringement of their human right to
the free practice of religion. Muslims can not fully practice Islam
ability to practice my religious faith freely does not, and indeed
cannot, diminish yours
Your Methodism, Hillary, does not impair the
practice of Islam. A Muslim, practicing his religion can rape and kill
you as an act of worship. Of course, that does not diminish your
rights at all, does it?
can be such a powerful bond, but we also recognize that it can be
misused to create conflict.
Creating conflict and perpetuating war are not
misuses of Islam, they are its mission. Its jihad, stupid! The “original religion” of Islam is jihad and jihad is war against non-Muslims. Allah will curse
Muslims with disgrace if they abandon jihad for trade and
are those who, for reasons actually having little to do with religion,
seek to instill fear or contempt for those of another creed.
That is an obvious sideswipe at “Islamophobes”;
those of us who expose and warn others about the damnable doctrines
& practices of Islam. Hillary implies that critics of Islam
are rousing the rabble to lynch Muslims. If that was true, we
could and should be prosecuted. In fact we are not, but far from
we believe that it is the duty of every government to ensure that
individuals are not subject to violence, discrimination, or
intimidation because of their faith or their lack of faith.
The governments of Egypt, Pakistan and other Islam
dominated nations are active, willing participants in intimidation,
discrimination & persecution of indigenous Christian minorities and
turn a blind eye to Islamic violence.
the same time, as we strive to protect individuals from violence and
discrimination because of their religion or their beliefs, we must also
express the freedom of expression.
Terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament of
Islam. Muslims earn Brownie Points with each act of
terrorism. 9/11 was an act of worship. The OIC seeks to
criminalize and punish the uttering and publishing of those fatal
facts. The resolution they ran through the GA last year is clear
on that matter. Res 16/18 focuses on incitement to hatred and
violence. According to Ban Ki-Moon, exposing the direct
connection between Islamic scripture, preaching and terrorism is hate
speech and incitement not protected by freedom of expression. If
he had the power, Ban would prohibit the publication of this blog post.
The purpose of Res 16/18 is to con our government into doing it for
how would one know that you were being discriminated against if you
didn’t have the right to freedom of expression?
The right of free expression is essential to
discussion of affairs of state; to political campaigns in
particular. When we perceive a real, proximate and continuing
threat to our personal and national security, we must be free to warn
our fellow citizens. When we are offended by the arrogant
exactions of enemy forces, we must be free to express our outrage and
contempt. The resolution you seek to implement is designed to
eliminate our right to free speech.
the freedom of religion and the freedom of expression are absolutely
bound up together.
My right to warn of the damnable mission, doctrines
and practices of Islam does not, in any way impair anyone’s freedom of
religion. If Muslims have a right to practice Islam, then all of
my rights are impaired. The right to live and the right to
practice Islam can not coexist because Islam is a license to kill; a
declaration of open season in denial of the right to life and
property. I direct doubters & dissenters to Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387.
there are those who have always seen a tension between these two
freedoms, especially when one person’s speech seems to question someone
else’s religious beliefs,

the truth we have learned, through a lot of trial and error over more
than 235 years in our country, is that we defend our beliefs best by
defending free expression for everyone, and it lowers the temperature.
It creates an environment in which you are free to exercise and to
speak about your religion, whether your neighbor or someone across the
town agrees with you or not.
fact, the appropriate answer to speech that offends is more speech.
Speech that offends: “fight them until”, “fight

You just confessed, in context of Res.16/18, that
exposure & condemnation of Islam are disagreeable to you and that
you consider them to be bigotry. You also lied, because the

all criticism of Islam. You have, in fact, adopted

by people either ignoring it or combating it with good arguments and

My side has the facts, Hillary. It is not possible
to refute our condemnation of Islam because what we say is supported by
ample evidence found in Islam’s canon. You can not refute the
facts outlined in this blog post. You can lie about them, spew

because Islam is intrinsically evil, by design and incapable of

You condemned Pastor Jones when he sponsored
International Burn the Koran Day. You condemned him when he tried
and executed the Qur’an last March. You and General Petraeus betrayed
us, blaming Jones for Muslim riots stirred up among rabid rabble by
rabid Imams at Jumah Salat. Jones did not incite violence. Jones
did not engage in hate speech. Jones did not violate anyone’s
rights. When you accused Jones of inciting violence, you did, in
fact, incite violence by encouraging Muslims to riot. I call
treason when I see it. You and Obama should be impeached,
convicted of treason and removed from office.
fact, we think it is our duty to do so,
we don’t ban it or criminalize it.
Res. 16/18 is a continuation of the string of
resolutions spawned by the OIC’s Ten year Plan. Scroll down to Art. VI,

& Sunnah. Allah is an impotent idol and Moe has been dead

arrest, try and incarcerate the rabid Imams who rouse the rabble to

There is a difference between shouting fire in a
crowded theater where there is no fire or rousing a lynch mob and
burning a Qur’an. Exposing the damnable doctrines of Islam in a
blog post does not kill anyone or destroy any property. Property
is destroyed and people are killed by Muslims engaged in an act of
worship: terrorism. They don’t get their incitement from us, they
get it from Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis &
jurisprudence and from their Imams.
I have to say we have one difficulty in understanding all of the
problems that we see around the world, and that is
because religion is so personal and because it is something that we
highly value in ourselves,
No, it ain’t and anybody smarter than a Moron can
see it after a little investigation. Ignorant & indolent Morons
like you project the western concept of religion onto Islam, which it
does not fit. We view religion as a beneficent & anodyne
agency of theology & interpersonal relationships. Religions
are our source of much of our morality & ethics.
Islam is presented and accepted by Muslims as the
absolute rule of Allah, which must be obeyed in all times, at all
places. It governs every facet of human life from conception through
burial. It dictates how they eat, how they defecate and how they
wipe their butts. It also imposes upon them a demonic mandate to
conquer and subjugate the entire world. Go to Amazon.com and get
a copy of Reliance of the Traveller or Volume II of hedaya and start
reading. You can learn much from the table of contents.
Islam is not a benign, anodyne & benevolent
theology, it is a continuing criminal enterprise; a war crime against
humanity motivated by filthy lucre: “The Spoils of War“.
After reading the first verse, skip ahead to 41, then 60 & 67. Turn next to 33:26-27 and 48:15-20. Turn next to Sahih Muslim 19.4327, Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220, & 4.52.267. If, after checking those
references, you can not correctly answer the following review
questions, its time to consider suicide to protect the gene pool.

Moe was extremely sensitive to criticism, so much so
that he ordered his companions to kill several critics. One clear
example is in the hadith where we can easily find it, others
are buried in The Life of
Muhammad and Tabari’s
Tahrik. Answering Islam
has several of the relevant accounts.
would be most unfortunate. In fact, what we have found, in study after
study, is that the United States is one of the most religious countries
in the world. And yet anybody can believe anything and go anywhere.
so there is no contradiction between having strong religious beliefs
and having the freedom to exercise them and to speak about them and to
even have good debates with others.
Res. 16/18 puts some emphasis on inter-religious
dialog, assuming that it will deaden our awareness of the existential
conflict between Islam and Christianity. When Pope Benedict XVI
lectured at Regensburg, Muslims raised hell and a large number of the
Ulema wrote a missive entitled A Common Word Between Us and You. in which they
called for dialog to find “common ground”. The central concept of
the missive is drawn from Surah Al Imran 3:64.
That ayeh ends with this sentence: “Bear witness that we are Muslims”;
those are fighting words. Read the context through #112.
Those threatening words were used in Moe’s extortion letter to Heraclius.
To see how Moe conducted dialog with Christians
(demanding that they curse themselves) turn to this topic in Tafsir Ibn
Kathir: The Challenge to the Mubahalah.
the fact is that no matter how
strongly each of us believes, none of us has the benefit of knowing all
the truth that God holds in his hands.
Nobody knows for certain, but Islam asserts a claim
of certainty that it alone has a monopoly on truth and that our
religion is in error.
therefore, we are doing the
best we can here on
earth to reflect and to give honor to our creator in a way that is
manifest in our religious values. Because truly, at the root of every major religion,
is a connection with the divinity,
The root of Islam is war, not a connection with
divinity. Search the hadith for “inspiration”, you will discover
how Moe got his “revelations”: in epileptic seizures. In the first
instance, he thought that he had wrestled with the devil but his wife
convinced him that he had encountered an angel. Take another good
long look at 8:67;’
that is some connection with “divinity”.

I doubt that any falser words were ever uttered in

Ten years ago, 19 Muslims hijacked four passenger
aircraft and flew three of them into occupied office structures.
They shouted “Allahu akbar!” while slitting the throats of the flight

subways in Madrid and London and seized a school in Beslan. Get a
clue! In the last 1400 years, 270*106 innocent people lost their
lives to Islam. If we do not eradicate Islam, either ideologically or militarily, they will out breed

Responding to an Anonymous Cpmment on Reliance of the
of the Traveller: Handbook of Shari’ah
was published to provide information about Islamic law, known as
Shari’ah. It focuses on Reliance of the Traveller, the most widely
known and accepted codification of fiqh. That post has been
receiving about four hits per day for several months. I guess
that interest in Shari’ah is being aroused by the controversy over
proposed legislation to exclude foreign law from domestic court
A lengthy anonymous comment on the post needs more
attention than the comment format permits. I am therefore
blogging it here with a post of its own. The comment is reproduced
below, unedited. My point by point response follows below the
comment on your post “Reliance
of the Traveller: Handbook of Shari’ah“:
You are far from Jesus’ teachings, and especially his message of love.
You harm your self and spread hatred with your falsehoods.
You could actually benefit from the truth and the beauty of the
teachings you are slandering.
The kufar are not Christians and Jews. They are “people of the book”
meaning people who have received revelations from God, however much
they ignore them or distort them. Kufar are idol worshippers. If you
honestly read the Quran or the Hadith, leaving behind the prejudice and
hatred, you might recognize that the revelations in the Quran, the life
and teachings of Muhammad, s.a.w., and the ways laid out from these in
the shariah, flow from the same Divine sources as the best of the old
and new testaments, and the examples and teachings of Jesus, s.a.w. and
the Prophets, s.a.w..
Indeed, I found the truth of Islam first by studying the words and
actions of Jesus s.a.w., the prophet, the guide, the good shepherd, the
teacher, the lover of all men and women, good and bad, the one who
prayed, who fell down on his face in worship, and in complete
submission to God, who asked forgiveness and help from his Lord and our
Lord, his Father and our Father.
This is Islam. There is nothing more to it. This is the real Shariah as
well, as developed by Muslim lawyers from the Quran and the teachings
and example of Muhammad s.a.w, as well as the example and teachings of
the other prophets in the Quran: Ibrahim, Moses, and Jesus among others.
As for the particulars of your errors, there are too many to mention in
less than a book, but for starters:
Zakat can and was given to dhimma during the time when there were
actual Muslim countries that followed Shariah. It is mandatory, not
just allowed. (If anyone was following Shariah).
Dhimmis (non-Muslim loyal citizens of a Muslim country) were not
required (or allowed) to be in the army under shariah. They also did
not pay the Zakat (state tax) which paid for the defense of the Muslim
state. They paid a substitute tax, which was approximately the same,
and they shared in all of the benefits of the state (today the
Republicans would call them “socialist” because the state assured the
health, welfare and education of all of its citizens.)
The Quran, and Islamic Law
forbid offensive wars, and allow only
defensive wars. Self-defense is a natural right. From its beginning
Islam and Muslims have been under attack starting with the pagan
Qureish and the Jews of Medina, then the Christian Emperor of Rome and
the Persian fire worshippers. Later it was Crusaders, and now the
Zionists and the Christians who defame and bring war to Muslim lands.
For centuries Jews, Christians, and other faiths were protected. Jews
and Christians sought sanctuary in Muslim countries (Iraq, Syria,
Palestine) from the Inquisition. They were received by Muslim rulers
and lived peacefully for centuries with Muslims until the UN created
Israel displacing Palestinians.
The oldest Christian churches and
Jewish synagogues still operate and
serve in Muslim majority countries. They thrived there while those
countries lived under shariah law. Their ancient churches and
monasteries still operate despite the despotic regimes now prevalent.
No Muslim country has followed shariah in two hundred years. The
imperial powers eliminated it along with Islamic education, politics,
trade, and finance systems. So today Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Iraq,
Iran and other “Muslim” countries in their institutions and law ignore
the teaching and example of the prophet Mohammed, s.a.w., the Shariah,
just as you ignore the teaching and example of the prophet Jesus Christ
My reply will not be published, so it addresses only you.
I pray that God guide you to the truth, and that the example of Jesus
with his love for all, the sinner and the saint, soften your heart and
lead you to see, and I pray respect the truth, and quit propaganda.

you can check the context. In a few important cases, I include the

Truly, Allâh loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves

are killed, verily, unto Allâh you shall be gathered.
3:159. And by the Mercy of Allâh, you dealt with them gently. And had
you been severe and harshhearted, they would have broken away from
about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (Allâh’s) Forgiveness
for them; and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a
decision, put your trust in Allâh, certainly, Allâh loves those who put their trust
- 5:13. So because
of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made
their hearts grow hard. They change the words from their (right) places
and have abandoned a good part of the Message that was sent to them.
And you will not cease to discover deceit in them, except a few of
them. But forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds). Verily, Allâh loves AlMuhsinûn
(gooddoers – see V.2:112).
- 5:42. (They like to) listen to falsehood, to
devour anything forbidden. So if they come to you (O Muhammad ), either
judge between them, or turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they
cannot hurt you in the least. And if you judge, judge with
justice between them. Verily, Allâh
loves those who act justly.
- 5:54. O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back
from his religion (Islâm), Allâh will bring a people whom He
will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers,
fighting in the Way of Allâh, and never afraid of the blame of
the blamers. That is the Grace of Allâh which He bestows on whom He
wills. And Allâh is AllSufficient for His creatures’ needs,
- 5:93. Those who believe and do righteous good deeds,
there is no sin on them for what they ate (in the past), if they fear
Allâh (by keeping away from His forbidden things), and believe and do righteous good deeds, and
again fear Allâh and believe, and once again fear Allâh and do good
deeds with Ihsân (perfection). And Allâh loves the gooddoers.
- 9:3. And a declaration from Allâh and His
Messenger to mankind on the greatest day (the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah – the
12th month of Islâmic calendar) that Allâh is free from (all)
obligations to the Mushrikûn (see V.2:105) and so is His Messenger. So
if you (Mushrikûn) repent, it is better for you, but if you turn away,
then know that you cannot escape (from the Punishment of) Allâh. And
give tidings (O Muhammad ) of a
painful torment to those who disbelieve.
9:4. Except those of the Mushrikûn with whom you
have a treaty, and who have not subsequently failed you in aught, nor
have supported anyone against you. So fulfill their treaty to them to
the end of their term. Surely Allâh
loves Al- Mattaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2).
9:5. Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months
of the Islâmic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikûn (see
V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and
prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and
perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and give Zakât, then leave their
way free. Verily, Allâh is
Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
- 9:7. How can there be a covenant with Allâh and
with His Messenger for the Mushrikûn (polytheists, idolaters, pagans,
disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) except those with whom you made a
covenant near Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (at Makkah)? So long, as they are true
to you, stand you true to them. Verily, Allâh loves Al-Muttaqûn (the
pious – see V.2:2).
- 9:108. Never stand you therein. Verily, the mosque
whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety is more worthy
that you stand therein (to pray). In it are men who love to clean and
to purify themselves. And Allâh
loves those who make themselves clean and pure (i.e. who clean their private parts
with dust [i.e. to be considered as soap) and water from urine
and stools, after answering the call of nature].
- 49:9. And if two parties or groups among the
believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them both, but if
one of them rebels against the other, then fight you (all) against the
one that which rebels till it complies with the Command of Allâh; then
if it complies, then make reconciliation between them justly, and be
equitable. Verily! Allâh loves
those who are equitable.
- 60:8. Allâh does not forbid you to deal justly and
kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and
did not drive you out of your homes. Verily, Allâh loves those who deal with
- 61:4. Verily, Allâh loves those who fight in His
Cause in rows (ranks) as if they were a solid structure .
Allah loves those who do not throw themselves to
destruction by shirking jihad. How sweet. Allah will love you if you emulate Moe… a murdering
lecher, pirate & pedophile. Whoever fulfills his pledge is a
reference to the Pledge of Ar-Ridwan: to fight to the death for
Islam. Allah loves those who spend in his cause; a reference to
jihad with their lives and their wealth. Allah forgives those who
get killed in his wars. Allah loves those who wipe their butts
with sand. Where is Allah’s love for mankind in general;
for sinners? 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life. (King James Bible, John)
Islamic love and charity are for Muslims only. Muslims are commanded to shun their fathers and
brothers if they are not Muslims.
When you invoke Jesus Christ to condemn the facts I
utter and publish,. you have a big problem, because I do not pull my
punches. Allah denies Christ’s patrimony, deity, crucifixion,
death & resurrection. Moe’s prophesies depict Jesus as
less worthy than himself and a genocidal warlord who will return to
kill the remaining Jews & Christians. I refer doubters &
dissenters to: The Defamation of Jesus Christ
for full documentation.
I do not knowingly utter & publish falsehoods; I
expose falsehoods! There is nothing false in my post about
Reliance of the Traveller.
truth and beauty
If the truth & beauty of the teachings of Islam
could be crystallized, the crystal would not be sufficient to plug a
people of the book
Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians & Sabeans are
classed by Allah as disbelievers. Allah commands Muslims to wage war against them
until they are converted or subjugated and extorted. The command
is confirmed by confirmed by hadith and codified in Shari’ah.
the real Shariah
- Noble Qur’an
- Sahih Bukhari
- Malik’s Muwatta

are to be reconciled. If they
are non-Muslims, they
are not given zakat, but
if Muslims, then they may
be given it (0: so that their certainty may increase,
or if they are recent converts to Islam and are
alienated from their kin).
Those to be reconciled include:
(1) the chief personages of a people (0: with
weak Islamic intentions) whose Islam may be
expected to improve, or whose peers may be
expected to enter Islam;
(2) or the heads of a people who collect zakat
for us from Muslims living near them who refuse
to pay it, or who fight an enemy for us at considerable
expense and trouble to themselves.
hS.24 It is not permissible to give zakat to a

Nobody became a Dhimmi without first being conquered
or intimidated by Muslims. Islam is a protection racket. Dhimmis
paid Moe to protect themselves from him, and in one case the jizya was
one half of their annual crop yield. I direct the attention of
doubters & dissenters to this hadith which describes Moe’s orders to his
commanders in the field. ” If
they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree
to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to
pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them...”
Quran, and Islamic Law forbid offensive wars
There is no al-Taqiyya more offensive that this
direct deception. Offensive conquest is commanded, not
forbidden! The two principle jihad imperatives make no mention of
being defensive or in response to attack. Read them and their tafsirs;
bring forth facts with which to prove me wrong.
- 8:38. Say to those who
have disbelieved, if they cease (from disbelief) their past will
be forgiven. But if they
return (thereto), then
the examples of those (punished) before them have already preceded
(as a warning).
8:39. And fight
them until there is no
more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others
besides Allâh) and the religion
(worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in
the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides
Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.
- (And fight them
until there is no more Fitnah…).” Ibn `Umar said, “We did
that during the time of the Messenger of Allah, when Islam was weak and
the man would be tried in religion, either tormented to death or being
imprisoned. When Islam became stronger and widespread, there was no
more Fitnah.” When the man realized that Ibn `Umar would not agree to
what he is saying, he asked him, “What do you say about `Ali and
`Uthman” Ibn `Umar replied, “What do I say about `Ali and `Uthman! As
for `Uthman, Allah has forgiven him, but you hate that Allah forgives
him. As for `Ali, he is the cousin of the Messenger of Allah and his
son-in-law,” and he pointed with his hand saying, “And this is his
house over there.” Sa`id bin Jubayr said, “Ibn `Umar came to us and
was asked, “What do you say
about fighting during Fitnah” Ibn `Umar said, “Do you know what Fitnah
refers to Muhammad was fighting against the idolators, and at that
time, attending (or residing with) the idolators was a Fitnah (trial in
religion). It is nothing like what you are doing, fighting to gain
leadership!” All these narrations were collected by Al-Bukhari,
may Allah the Exalted grant him His mercy. Ad-Dahhak reported that Ibn
`Abbas said about the Ayah,
The caliph fights all
other peoples until they become Muslim
(O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and
are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) (n:
though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions,
even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of
the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll
tax, the sole exceptions to
which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs,
neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya
sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi’ (y21), 6.48-49) ).
- 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.
- The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They
give the Jizyah
- This honorable Ayah was revealed with the order to fight the
People of the Book, after the pagans were defeated, the people entered
Allah’s religion in large numbers, and the Arabian Peninsula was
secured under the Muslims’ control. Allah commanded His Messenger to
fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth
year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called
the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination.
- O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o25) makes
war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians
(N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and
practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social
order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4)
-which is the significance of their paying it, not the money
itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O:
and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the
non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
“Fight those who do not believe
in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His
messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth,
being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax
out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29),
the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon
whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be
accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until
Jesus’ descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the
divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail
a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of
Muhammad. As for the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him
“I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,”
this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be
peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a
follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).
Allah said “fight them… until”. Not those who
attack you; them.
The smug, smarmy, self-righteous Muslim, convinced of the superiority
of his demon and himself, while substituting his anus for the brain
Allah has eaten, supposes us to be so stupid, ignorant and indolent
that we can neither discover nor comprehend objective factual
reality. There is no greater arrogance than that which asserts
that offensive conquest is harram!
Defensive jihad is covered in Surahs Surah Al-Hajj 22:39
and Al-Baqarah 2:190.
In Reliance, O9.0 defines jihad as war against non-Muslims. O9.1
defines the communal obligation. Offensive jihad is fard kifaya, only
defensive jihad is fard ayn. The minimum requirement is one
ghazwat in every year, without which, if it were possible, all who know
of it are sinners.
O9.1: The Obligatory Character of Jihad
is a communal obligation (def: c3.2). When enough people perform it to
successfully accomplish it, it is no longer obligatory upon others
(O: the evidence for which is the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and
give him peace),
“He who provides the equipment for a
soldier in jihad has himself performed jihad,”
and Allah Most High having said:
“Those of the believers who are unhurt but
sit behind are not equal to those who fight in Allah’s path with their
property and lives. Allah has preferred those who fight with their
property and lives a whole degree above those who sit behind. And to
each, Allah has promised great good” (Koran 4:95).
none of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all,
then everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if
there was a possibility of having performed it. In the time of
the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) jihad was a communal
obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina. As for subsequent
times, there are two possible
states in respect to non-Muslims.
The first is when they are in their own
countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation,
and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, “Jihad is a
communal obligation,” meaning
upon the Muslims each year.
The second state is when non-Muslims invade a Muslim
country or near to one, in which case jihad is personally obligatory
(def: c3.2) upon the inhabitants
Exactly what part of that does Anonymous not
comprehend? Perhaps Al-Shafi’i can clarify it for him.
least that the imam must do is
that he allow no year to pass without
having organised a military expedition by himself, or by his
parties, according to the Muslims’ interest, so that the jihad will
only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse.”
- The destruction of the
incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors,
appears from various passages in the sacred writings which are
generally received this effect.
- War must be carried on
against the Infidels, at all times, by some party of the Muslims
The anonymous liar says that offensive conquest is harram. Allah, Moe
& the jurists say it is required. Whom do you believe?
Dhimmis are not permitted to build or maintain
churches, display crosses, ring bells or pray aloud in public.

Newt Gingrich, in an interview with The Jewish Channel, denied the Palestinian narrative. Washington Post has a transcript of the interview, which is more complex than the single sound byte which is drawing intense criticism. The full quote is found on the third page of the transcript. I added bold italic emphasis to the part cited in the media.
invented Palestinian people
Everyone who has read the Bible knows that Jerusalem was King David’s capital city and that his son Solomon constructed the Temple on the Temple Mount, hundreds of years before Christ. We know that there was a Babylonian captivity, return and rebuilding. During the lifetime of Muhammad, Israel was occupied by the Roman Empire.
We also know that Joseph took Mary on his trip to Bethlehem of Judea to pay his Roman taxes. If Bethlehem was in Palestine, why was that area called Judea?
In 638, six years after Moe’s death, Umar conquered and occupied the Roman Province of Syria. Instead of giving the land back to its rightful owners, he occupied and oppressed them.
The Romans renamed the area “Philistia” after suppressing a revolt. The place and people remained the same: Jews living in Judea. Jews, not Arabs, are indigenous to Israel.
I have a few questions for the omniscient experts who “know” that “Palestinians” are indigenous to “Palestine” and deserve to have a state carved out of Israel because they had a nation there.
- When and where did the nation of “Palestine” exist?
- What was its capital city?
- Who was its ruler?
- What was its currency?
- What was its religion?
- What distinguishes “Palestinians” from the mill run of Arabs?
The Ottoman Empire allied with the Axis Powers and lost. Britain was given a mandate to recreate a Jewish state. We have all heard of “next year in Jerusalem”, but where were the demands for restoration of “Palestine”?
Britain gave 75% of Israel’s land to Trans-Jordan. Where were the demands for establishing a “Palestinian” state? The UN came up with a partition plan, which the Muslims rejected. They chose war instead of a state. Egypt illegally seized Gaza and Jordan illegally seized Judea & Samaria. Where were the demands for restoration of “Palestine”.
The Muslims attacked again and lost. In the process, Israel regained Judea & Samaria. Now the kvetching which began in 1964 increased in volume and intensity. Who will explain why there were no loud demands for “Palestinian independence” prior to ’64 when Arab dictatorships held the territories?
The Big Lie
One crucial quote from a newspaper interview, reproduced by WND, lets the snake out of the bag: “Palestinian people” is a political fabulism!
Way back on March 31, 1977, the Dutch newspaper Trouw published an interview with Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein. Here’s what he said:
The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism.
For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.
Compare the two statements:
- I think that we’ve had an invented Palestinian people, who are in fact Arabs, and were historically part of the Arab community
- The Palestinian people does not exist…there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians … will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan
A member of the PLO executive committee revealed the fatal fact in 1977: “Palestine” is bogus. How then can you criticize Newt for restating the obvious truth? Terms such as “racist” & “reckless” are bandied about without merit.
Two state solution
Two states: Israel & Jordan. There is no need for another state. We have learned what we should have known all along: the “Palestinian people” are a political fabulism. Israel is Palestine. Palestine is Israel. Palestinians are Jews.
In a pig’s anus! There is no “peace process”. There is no peace and there never will be; Muslims will never tolerate Israel, for one simple reason which nobody wants to admit. Jew hatred is intrinsic to Islam.
- 1:7. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians).
- 2:161. Verily, those who disbelieve, and die while they are disbelievers, it is they on whom is the Curse of Allâh and of the angels and of mankind, combined.
- 5:60. Say (O Muhammad to the people of the Scripture): “Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allâh: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allâh and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Tâghût (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hellfire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world).”
- 5:82. Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikûn (see V.2:105), and you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: “We are Christians.” That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud.
- 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).
- 9:30. And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allâh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allâh’s Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!
- 98:6. Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islâm, the Qur’ân and Prophet Muhammad ()) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.
- Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 392:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
While we were in the Mosque, the Prophet came out and said, “Let us go to the Jews” We went out till we reached Bait-ul-Midras. He said to them, “If you embrace Islam, you will be safe. You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to expel you from this land. So, if anyone amongst you owns some property, he is permitted to sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle.”
- 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.
Moe invested many words inculcating hatred of Jews but one hadith stands out above the rest, collected by Bukhari and Muslim, this says it all.
- 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.”
Muslims can not enter the Celestial Bordello until they hunt down and murder the last Jew. This is a clue for you.
clues for the clueless
The Arab culture is shame/honor based, which explains why they murder their daughters who are suspected of fornication. For Muslims, there is an even greater shame: being shown up as believing in a false idol. Allah promised them world domination: gradual, irreversible accretion of land through conquest. Allah promised that an army of faithful believers could defeat an army twice as large.
They will never tolerate the existence of Israel because Israel proves the falsity of those promises, demonstrating the fact that Allah is an impotent idol.
- 8:66. Now Allâh has lightened your (task), for He knows that there is weakness in you. So if there are of you a hundred steadfast persons, they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a thousand of you, they shall overcome two thousand with the Leave of Allâh. And Allâh is with As-Sâbirin (the patient ones, etc.).
- 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.
Newt said something which is factually true. Falestinians, the Arab League and treacherous politicians accuse him of “racism” and “inciting terrorism”. The critics cherry picked one sentence from an extensive interview in which vital national security concepts are discussed. I hope that you will use the link to the Washington Post and read the entire interview.
