Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie, President Union for Reform Judaism and other ignoramuses who spew complete fiction about Islam.
- There exists in this country among all Americans – whether Jews, Christians, or non-believers – a huge and profound ignorance about Islam.
That much is beyond dispute. But a few of us are trying to do something about it. We have listened to Islam’s spokesmen, and we have read Allah’s word and Muhammad’s traditions. We have even delved into Islamic law to see what Islam is all about. Everyone should do the same instead of pontificating from the ivory tower of ignorance.
- …there is no shortage of voices prepared to tell us that fanaticism and intolerance are fundamental to Islamic religion, and that violence and even suicide bombing have deep Koranic roots…
Rabbi Yoffie implies that:
- fanaticism is not fundamental to Islam
- intolerance is not fundamental to Islam
- Islam is a religion
- violence does not have deep Koranic roots.
- Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was a fanatic.
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 54:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, “By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for some men amongst the believers who dislike to be left behind me and whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind any Sariya’ (army-unit) setting out in Allah’s Cause. By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Al1ah’s Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.
Whom do Muslims emulate?
By the declaration of the second part of the Muslim shahada (witness), which is “ash-hadu anna Muhammad rasool Allah” (Muhammad is the messenger of Allah), a Muslim vows to accept Muhammad (pbuh) as his role model in life. If the Qur’an is the Word of God, the model life led by Muhammad is its practical expression. That means a Muslim has to actualize the commands and prohibitions of God given in the Qur’an by following in all the areas of life, Allah’s Messenger, Muhammad (pbuh).
3:85 And whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. 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.
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!
- Islam is not a religion. Islam is a war machine camouflaged with a thin veil of false faith fabricated for the purpose of motivating murderers and camouflaging their intent. This fact is fully documented in Has Islam Been Hijacked?
- 2:216 makes Jihad mandatory, not optional. “Jihad is ordained for you.” 2:190…193 give us a few hints. …”fight in the Way of Allâh those who fight you”…”kill them wherever you find them”…”fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allâh) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allâh (Alone).”… Read the translator’s note on 2:190 at the bottom of the page. 8:39 and 9:29 are fight until loops, declaring unremitting war upon pagans, Jews & Christians respectively. Unfortunately, they are also the basis of Islamic law, which I quote from The Reliance of The Traveler, a widely accepted handbook of Fiqh.
The caliph (o-25) 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: o-11.4) -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)…
Jews & Christians are the worst of creatures, to be burned; Allah curses them. <sarcasm> No sign of intolerance at all! </sarcasm>
- How did it happen that Christian fundamentalists, such as Pat Robertson and Franklin Graham, make vicious and public attacks against your religious tradition?
It happened this way: Robertson & Graham accurately described Islam’s tradition! I refer you to Sahih Bukhari’s books of Jihad & Khumus. Those books describe Islam’s traditions: what Muhammad did and said on and about the battlefield.
- How did it happen that a member of Congress, Tom Tancredo, now running for President, calls for the bombing of Mecca and Medina?
It happened this way: Congressman Tancredo was briefed on the terrorist threats and decided that we need a deterrent. He called for targeting Mecca if we are nuked because no other deterrent is possible against those who seek martyrdom.
- As a Jew I know that our sacred texts, including the Hebrew Bible, are filled with contradictory propositions, and these include passages that appear to promote violence and thus offend our ethical sensibilities. Such texts are to be found in all religions, including Christianity and Islam.
Only Islamic scripture sanctifies & mandates Jihad, genocide & terrorism with clear, direct, open ended outcome based commands.
I previously cited Reliance of The Traveler. Now I will cite Al-Shafii, a prominent Islamic Jurist.
Al-Shafi’i (God have mercy on him) said: “The 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 raiding parties, according to the Muslims’ interest, so that the jihad will only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse.” He said: “If he did not undertake the sending of enough troops to fight, those who are absent (must) go out, and consider as an obligation that which God (who is praised) said.”
Do not take my word for this! Do not believe anyone who claims to be an expert! Go to the sources; hear it from the ass’s mouth! Click the hyper links in this article and read the source documents. Above all, never believe any damn fool Dhimmi who assures you that “Islam is a religion of peace.”!

Primary rules for intellectuals:
- ignore facts
- ignore common sense.
If thats your definition of intellectual it explains why you are wedded to violence and opposed to any efforts for peace.
Typical straw man argument, employing an element of projection. It is Islam that embraces and sanctifies violence.Peace is obtained by victory and maintained by superior strength and vigilance. The alternative is death, subjugation and slavery.
Fact: the Qur’an contains clear verses whose meaning is self-evident.
- 3:7 …In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkâm (commandments, etc.)…
- 27:1 a Book (that makes things) clear
- 43:2 By the manifest Book (that makes things clear, i.e. this Qur’ân).
- Tafsir Ibn Kathir: The Mutashabihat and Muhkamat Ayat: Allah states that in the Qur’an, there are Ayat that are Muhkamat, entirely clear and plain, and these are the foundations of the Book which are plain for everyone.…(They are the foundations of the Book), meaning, they are the basis of the Qur’an, and should be referred to for clarification, when warranted,…The Muhkamat are the Ayat that explain the abrogating rulings, the allowed, prohibited, laws, limits, obligations and rulings that should be believed in and implemented…. [Emphasis added.]
In the Qur’an, Muhammad quotes Allah directly: “In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book”. In his explanation of the Qur’an, directly referring to the same verse, the most accepted Qur’an scholar verifies that fact. But Monty & Alex, being self appointed intellectuals, know better than Allah. They know better than an expert who spent his entire lifetime studying Islam’s canon scripture.
They can not accept the fact that 9:29 contains a clear imperative to fight and kill “people of the scriptures” who do not submit to Islam. They can not accept that the command is within a fight until loop, with neither chronological nor geographical limitations.
The clear imperative to fight and kill Jews and Christians is confirmed by direct statements from Muhammad and the agents of his successor:
- Bukhari1.8.387: “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.“
- Bukhari9.92.388: I have been ordered to fight the people till they say ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’ And whoever says: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ waves his wealth and his life from me unless he deserves a legal punishment lusty, and his account will be with Allah!
- Abu Dawud14.2635: I am commanded to fight with men till they testify that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is His servant and His Apostle, face our qiblah (direction of prayer), eat what we slaughter, and pray like us. When they do that, their life and property are unlawful for us except what is due to them.
- Bukhari4.52.196: I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ and whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ his life and property will be saved by me except for Islamic law, and his accounts will be with Allah, (either to punish him or to forgive him.)”
- Bukhari4.53.386: …Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.”…
We have two fight until loops contained in 8:39 & 9:29 respectively, which are verified and confirmed by five hadith. What does the most widely accepted Qur’an scholar say about them?
- The Order to fight until there is no more Fitnah: Allah then commanded fighting the disbelievers when He said:
(…until there is no more Fitnah) meaning, Shirk. This is the opinion of Ibn `Abbas, Abu Al-`Aliyah, Mujahid, Al-Hasan, Qatadah, Ar-Rabi`, Muqatil bin Hayyan, As-Suddi and Zayd bin Aslam. Allah’s statement: (…and the religion (all and every kind of worship) is for Allah (Alone).) means, `So that the religion of Allah becomes dominant above all other religions.’
- The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah : Allah said, (Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth among the People of the Scripture, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.)… 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….
We have the direct statements of Allah, quoted by Muhammad in 8:39 & 9:29. We have five hadith which confirm those statements. We have the same texts quoted and confirmed by Ibn Kathir. Alex, John & Monty have:
- intellectual superiority
- moral superioity
- smug certitude
- no facts
- no logic
- no reasoning
- a priori they are right, all opponents are wrong and all evidence is irrelevant.
In a pig’s!
The Rev. Jesse Jackson was arrested yesterday at a demonstration outside a south suburban gun shop and charged with one count of criminal trespass.
Jackson was arrested when he refused to move away from the entrance to Chuck’s Gun Shop in Riverdale, police said.
He has protested with other community activists outside the shop in recent weeks after a 16-year-old honor student was gunned down on a city bus.
Jackson says the shop’s proximity to Chicago provides gang members and criminals easy access to firearms.
REV. JESSE JACKSON SR.: Duke: Horror and Truth
Wizbang: (I knew this would bring Troll 2 in)
“Divorced Mother Of Two, Working Way Through College, Allegedly Raped, Abused By Gang.” Had the headline read that way, the fury would have been great. [because there was no fury about the case -ed] The facts that the police didn’t arrest anyone, that the gang was not talking, that it took two days for the police to search the scene of the crime would have added to the anger.
But that’s not how it was reported. Rather, it was reported that a black stripper was accusing members of the Duke lacrosse team of rape after she and another woman were hired to dance for them at a party. That method of reportage put race and class in the center of the story.
Unfortunately, for three young men, Nifong’s getting “carried away” got carried too far – right to the feet of Jesse Jackson. Jackson came to the defense of the so-called victim in this case even going so far as to publicly announce on Fox News’ Hannity and Colmes that he would offer a “don’t strip scholarship” to the accuser. On that same program, co-host Sean Hannity asked Jackson if he would recant his statement if the three players were found not guilty. Jackson replied, “no because I do not believe they are innocent and justice will prevail.”
Well, Mr. Jackson, you were half right. Justice did prevail. Three innocent men were exonerated for a crime they did not commit. The question now remains, Mr. Jackson, do you intend to offer an apology to the three falsely accused players? Mr. Jackson is guilty of one of the worst cases of racism in recorded history and yet he has not even offered one iota of an apology or other reparation. Jackson was so quick to judge these three because they were white and the so-called victim was black – a classic example of racism if there ever were one. Rather than wait until all of the evidence had been presented in a court of law before a jury, Jackson had already appointed himself judge, jury and executioner of these three Duke University students and now, with egg all over his face, Jackson acts as though he did nothing wrong. In fact, it might be safe to say that as far as Jackson is concerned, the three are guilty and no evidence to the contrary will change his mind, regardless of how irrefutable that evidence may be.
Why is Jesse the bigot so silent and where are the apologies?
