Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Combatting intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization


The 2013 edition of “Combating Defamation of Islam” is entitled:  “Combatting intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization“. The new resolution
incorporates the boilerplate of previous resolutions reaching back to
the Durban Declaration and Plan of Action by reference. Those wishing
to read the entire pile of drek can find it here:  http://www.humanrightsvoices.org/site/developments/?d=11282

This resolution contains one boilerplate paragraph
which warrants detailed deliaring; I intend to concentrate on that
paragraph. [Emphasis added.] [For a point by point dissection of the other malignant malarkey in the resulution, refer to this post which dissected last year’s resolution.]

Reaffirming that terrorism in all its forms
and manifestations cannot
and should not be associated with any religion, nationality,
civilization or ethnic group, (UNGA resolution 67/178, pp7)

Associated?

    Death &
Damnation!!!Terrorism is an
intrinsic sacrament of Islam!! Who in
Hell associated terrorism with Islam???

 

Allah!

How did Allah associate Islam & terrorism?
Directly & explicitly in the Qur’an! [Translated by Hilali &
Khan unless otherwise noted,]

  • 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts
    of those who disbelieve
    , because they joined others in worship
    with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the
    Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and
    wrong­doers).
  • 3:152. And Allâh did indeed fulfil His Promise
    to you when you were killing them
    (your enemy) with His
    Permission; until (the moment) you lost your courage and fell to
    disputing about the order, and disobeyed after He showed you (of the
    booty) which you love. Among you are some that desire this world and
    some that desire the Hereafter. Then He made you flee from them (your
    enemy), that He might test you. But surely, He forgave you, and Allâh
    is Most Gracious to the believers.

    • Allah next conveys the good news that He
      will put fear of the Muslims, and feelings of subordination to the
      Muslims in the hearts of their disbelieving enemies
      , because of
      their Kufr and Shirk. And Allah has prepared torment and punishment for
      them in the Hereafter. http://www.islam-universe.com/tafsir//3.9541.html
  • 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the
    angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast
    terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved
    , so strike them over the necks, and smite over
    all their fingers and toes
    .”

  • 8:57.  If thou comest on them in the war,
    deal with them so as to strike fear
    in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember. [Pickthall]

  • 8:60. Against them make ready your strength to the
    utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror
    into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others
    besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye
    shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall
    not be treated unjustly. [Abdullah Yusuf Ali]

  • 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture
    who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought
    them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts
    ,
    (so that) a
    group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captive
    s.
  • 33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands,
    and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not
    trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.

  • 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers
    among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî
    An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think
    that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would
    defend them from Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place
    whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror
    into their hearts
    , so that they destroyed their own dwellings
    with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take
    admonition, O you with eyes (to see).

  • 59:13. Verily, you
    (believers in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a
    fear in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh
    . That
    is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power
    of Allâh).

Moe!

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:

    The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given
    to any one else before me.

    1. Allah
    made me victorious by awe
    , (by His frightening my enemies) for a
    distance of one month’s journey.

    2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for
    praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my
    followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.

    3. The booty
    has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone
    else before me.

    4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of
    Resurrection).

    5. Every Prophet used to be sent to
    his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the
    shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror
    (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while
    I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to
    me and put in my hand.
    ” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has
    left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures
    (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

Casting Terror

Allah, in his Qur’an, said that he would and did
cast terror into the hearts of disbelievers. Moe said that Allah made
him victorious through terror.  How did Allah cast terror?
Lets look a little deeper below the surface.

On page 326 of The Life of Muhammad, Ishaq summarizes
NQ8:57 & 60 thusly:

‘If you come upon them in war, deal
with them so forcibly as to
terrify
those who follow them, haply they may take warning,’ i.e.. make a severe

warning of them to those that come after, that haply they may
understand.

‘And prepare what you can against them, and cavalry by which

you may strike tenor
,”to the enemy of God and your enemy, as far as HIS

words. ‘And whatever you spend in the way of God will hc repaid to you:

you will not be wronged; 1.e. you will not lose your reward which God in

the next life and a rapid recompense in this world.

Allah told Moe to threaten his victims with the strongest possible army
and rough them up enough to terrify prospective victims.

Readers who are aware of current events will recall incidents of
Muslims taunting Jews with cries of  “Khaybar”, one of Moe’s
brutal genocidal conquests,. The practical application of 8:57 is
exemplified by Khaybar’s effect on Fadak, which is revealed on page 523 of The Life of Muhammad.

When the apostle had finished with
Khaybar. God struck terror to
the


hearts of the men of Fadak
when they heard what the had done tothe men of Khaybar . They sent to him an offer of peace on condition
that

they should keep half of their produce. Their messengers came to him in

Khaybar or an the road or after he came to Medina, and he accepted fheir

terms.Thus Fadak became his private property.because it had not been

attacked by horse or camel.’

Kab Ashraf was the chief of a Jewish settlement and
a poet who had mocked Moe, who commissioned his assassination.
The story of the assassination and its effect are told on page 368 of The Life of Muhammad.

Our attack upon
God’s enemy cast terror among the Jews
, and there was no Jcw in
Medina who did not fear far his rife.”

Asma bint Marwan was a poet  who mocked Moe and
complained bitterly of his murders upon which he had her killed. The
story is told on page 676 of The Life of Muhammad. Her murder, like
that of Ashraf, had the intended effect:

The day after Bmt Marwan was klled the
men of B. Khatma.  became Muslims
bcuuse they saw the power of Idam
.

Assassination & genocide were not the only
methods of casting terror; Moe’s companions also destroyed date trees
with the same objective in mind.  Turn to the commentary of
Muhammad Shafi in the Mariful Qur’an for the details:  page 374 of Volume 8. .

The reference in the verse is to the
cutting, by the orders of the Holy Prophet , of thepalm trees of Banii Nadir who had shut themselves in their fortresses in

defiance of the Holy Prophet’s orders to surrender. So, some of the
blessed

Companions, in
order to anger them or cast terror into their hearts
, cut

and burned down some of their date trees.

The OIC and their dhimmis demand that UN member
states criminalize revelation of the fact that terrorism is an
intrinsic sacrament of Islam. Allah said that he would cast terror and
subsequently described the effects of casting terror: genocide,
enslavement, dispossession & dispersion.  Moe bragged about
being made victorious with terror but we should be fined, imprisoned or
executed for telling you about their demonic ideology and deeds.

When we declare that Allah is Satan, we are not
stereotyping Muslims; we are stating the obvious: the deity they
worship is demonic.  When we declare that Moe was a barbaric,
genocidal, profiteer, murderer, lecher & child molester, we are
stating the obvious, not stereotyping Muslims.  Every Muslim who
does not want to be known as a demon worshiper and terrorist emulator
need only apostatize, disassociating themselves from the demon and his
profiteer.

Freemen who wish to remain free and live in peace
and security need to rise up as one disrespectfully demanding that
effective action be taken to remove Islam from the face of the
earth.  I exhort citizens of the USA to sign this on line petition
which will email itself to your Representative & Senators.

The annual UN resolutions passed by the HRC & GA
have no legal force but international human rights covenants such as
ICERD can be enforced against signatory member states. An ad hoc
committee of the HRC meets for ten days twice each year to craft a
binding protocol to inject the resolutions into ICERD so that they can
be enforced
.  Few people know about this parallel track and
nobody
is doing anything to derail it.

A good offense is the best defense, so we must
disrespectfully demand that Islam be outlawed for its egregious
violations of ICERD, ICCPR & CPPCG.

Islamophobia: UN Censorship Agenda 2012


Call it Islamophobia, defamation of Islam, defamation of religions,
vilification or negative stereotyping, it still implies and entails
criminalizing the questioning, criticism and exposure of the damnable
doctrines & practices of Islam.  The name and the rhetoric
change; the intention does not.  The OIC & UN seek to codify
the following into international & national law:

At the opening of the 19th session of the
Human Rights Council February 28, 2012, Ekmeleddin_Insanoglu, Secretary
General of the OIC, made revealing remarks which expose the true agenda
of Islam and the UN.  At the time of this writing, no new draft
resolutions on this subject have been uploaded to the HRC extranet, but
I presume that one will be shortly before March 20.  I have
excerpted the relevant paragraphs, adding links to two previous
resolutions mentioned in the speech.

Islamophobia
is a contemporary manifestation of racism. Combating Islamophobia as
well as

vilification of all religions and denigration of symbols and
personalities sacred to all religions

is a matter of priority at the OIC. We regret that events representing
constitutionalization and

institutionalization of Islamophobia continue to unfold. Most
disconcerting is Islamophobia

being used as an instrument of electoral politics. This is a dangerous
trend that needs to be

arrested. It threatens the multicultural fabric of societies. It could
seriously undermine

international community’s efforts aimed at interfaith harmony that
could underwrite peace

and security- particularly so in a world faced with the menace of
terrorism. There is an urgent

need to initiate and sustain ‘preventive cultural diplomacy.

It is in this context that OIC took the initiative embodied in the
resolution 16/1 8. This session

marks the first anniversary of the consensual passage of this
resolution. It was based on the

eight points that I mentioned during my address to the 15th session of
the Council in

September 201 0. I am glad that these points found resonance with all
the negotiating partners

and resulted in a process of consensus building. We must now build on
the consensus. It is

with this. in mind that I initiated – with the presence and
participation of US Secretary of

State Hillary Clinton, Baroness Ashton and other Ministers – the
Istanbul Process for a

consensual implementation of this resolution. The process seems to be
going forward with

the last meeting held in Washington and the next to be scheduled in the
EU region. OIC will

also be hosting an event this year to further the Process. We believe
it is important to have a

structured engagement. We must address the grey areas and the whole
package of interrelated

issues by accommodating all concerns of all parties. The alternative
approach in resolutions ‘

16/18
at HRC and 66/167 at UNGA has put the decade of polarization
and politicization

behind us. This enables us to address the real issues and chart out a
sustainable and result-oriented

course of action at the national and the international levels. Recent
events

characterized by loss of lives in Norway and Afghanistan underscored
the importance of

concerted and consensual international action. OIC has demonstrated
ability to build consensus

on the most sensitive of international issues. We look forward to being
reciprocated in the same spirit.

Islamophobia

Phobia implies irrationality.  There is nothing
irrational about fear & loathing of Islam because terrorism is an
intrinsic sacrament1
of Islam.

racism

What race is Islam? It originated in Arabia, but it
enslaved millions of Africans & Asians through conquest. Ideology
& religion are dynamic, but race is static and immutable.  We
do not hate Muslims because of their skin color, we hate their belief2 that they
have a divine
mission to convert or enslave
us through conquest.

Muslims use false accusations of racism to denigrate
& calumniate its critics because they can not refute the facts we
present.

vilification of all religions

In the Qur’an, Jews are those who “earned your anger” &
Christians are those who “went astray”
. We are described as the worst of living creatures”. They recite Surah Al-Fatiha
seventeen times each day, reminding Allah why he should burn us.

denigration of personalities

Truthfully describing Muhammad as a lecherous
pedophile who married a six year old girl, arranged
the divorce
of his daughter in law so he could add her to his
harem and ordered the murder of critics is denigration of a
sacred person but denial of Christ’s
paternity
, divinity, crucifixion,
death & resurrection
and depicting him as a  warlord who will return to lead the Muslims in the
final genocide 3 is perfectly
ok.

constitutionalization

It is nearly certain that this is a reference to the
anti-Shari’ah movement to pass legislation and constitutional
amendments to exclude foreign law, including Shari’ah from our court system.

instrument of electoral politics

That is an obvious reference to campaign
advertisements and ‘debate’ statements critical of Islam.  They
want to criminalize criticism of Islam by candidates for office.

interfaith harmony

Translation: submission to Islam.  The sentence
including that phrase is a thinly veiled threat of war.

polarization

The sentence containing that word is a reference to
the dispute over the ‘defamation of religions’ meme. The position of
Western Civilization is that defamation and legal protection from its
effects belong to individuals, not to religions. Our side views the
defamation meme as an existential threat to freedom of
expression.  Islam views freedom of expression as subordinate to
their sensitivities. Muslims are sensitive because they know that Islam
is an impious fraud but are so heavily invested in it that they can not
acknowledge the fact.

defamation

The claim that Res16/18 eliminated the defamation
meme and associated conflict is malignant malarkey.  There is no
significant difference between defamation and negative
stereotyping.  A/C.3/66/L.48/Rev.1, passed Dec. 19, ’12 along
with A/66/167, emphasizes that “that no religion should be
equated with
terrorism,
as this may have adverse consequences on the
enjoyment of
the right to freedom of religion or belief of all members of the
religious communities concerned;”.

At the opening of Session 19, Qatar’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs had this
to say
:

The international community still
faces a major challenge


due to the worsening impact
of racist practices, racial


discrimination, acts of
violence and related conflicts. These


practices have become evident
in the

defamation
and negative

stereotyping
of religions
, as well
as in the incitement to violence


against people on the basis
of their religion or belief.

  1. 3:151, 7:4, 8:12, 8:57 8:60, 33:26, 59:2, 59:13, Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331,
    Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220,

  2. Islam is inseverable, all or nothing. 2:85
    strictly prohibits selectivity, making Islam a package deal.  Believers
    are only those who “fight in Allah’s cause”, which is to make Islam dominate the world.
  3. “In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah);
    and the Muslims, along with
    `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews
    . This will occur just
    before the end of this world.”

No Compulsion in Religion & Defamation from MPAC


http://www.mpac.org/assets/docs/publications/MPAC-defamations-of-religion.pdf

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.]

Let there be no compulsion in religion, the truth stands out clear from error… (2:256)

 Say: O ye that reject Faith,! I worship not that which ye worship, Nor will ye worship that
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)

He was not permitted to force people to believe. (17:53-54; 88:21-22)

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.

Keeping this verse in view, some people raise objections. They say
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
principle.
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
harmful likes.

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.

17:53. And say to My slaves (i.e. the true believers of Islâmic Monotheism) that they should (only) say those words that are the best. (Because) Shaitân (Satan) verily, sows disagreements among them. Surely, Shaitân (Satan) is to man a plain enemy.

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.

88:21. So remind them (O Muhammad ()), you are only a one who reminds.

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]

(You are not a Musaytir over them.) Ibn `Abbas, Mujahid and others said, “You are not a dictator over them.” This means that you cannot create faith in their hearts. Ibn Zayd said, “You are not the one who can force them to have faith.” Imam Ahmad recorded from Jabir that the Messenger of Allah said,
(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.

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.

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.

O9.9 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) ).

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”.

Adopting measures to criminalize the incitement to imminent violence
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.

Reuters quotes U.N. Secretary General Ban 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.”

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.

Also emphasizes that no religion should be equated with terrorism, as this
may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion
or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned;

The obvious was confirmed by our own Department of State last summer when they met the OIC at Istanbul to discuss implementation of the resolution.  This quote from the Secretary of State requires a little decoding. for the meaning of “intolerance” Refer back to the quote from Ban Ki-moon. [Following quotes from OIC Journal.]

“Together we have begun to overcome the false divide that pits
religious sensitivities against freedom of expression, and we
are pursuing a new approach based on concrete steps to fight
intolerance wherever it occurs.

Our Ambassador to the HRC piled on.

A positive aspect of Resolution 16 /18 is that it did not
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
eminent violence”.

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.

3:78. And verily, among them is a party who distort the Book with their tongues (as they read), so that you may think it is from the Book, but it is not from the Book, and they say: “This is from Allâh,” but it is not from Allâh; and they speak a lie against Allâh while they know it.

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.

 Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4436:

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.

Combating Intolerance, Negative Stereotyping…


The 3rd Committee action predicts similar action in the General Assembly next month.  This is a continuation of one branch of the OIC’s ten year plan. The objective is to pass and enforce international and national legislation to criminalize, prohibit and punish all criticism and questioning of Islam.

Because the tyrants and clerics know that Islam is false & malignant, they can not tolerate any expression which might raise doubts among the Ummah.  Read this well documented essay to discover how Moe dealt with one of his critics.

To examine the Shari’ah relevant to blasphemy, follow these links:


current resolutions

Two relevant resolutions were recently approved by acclamation in the 3rd Cmte.  and are expected to be approved by the General Assembly in December ’11.  I present titles, links, and a few pertinent paragraphs for your examination..

  • A/C.3/66/L.48/Rev.1
  • Promotion and protection of human rights: human
    rights questions, including alternative approaches
    for improving the effective enjoyment of human rights
    and fundamental freedoms
    • Elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based
      on religion or belief
6. Strongly condemns any advocacy of religious hatred that constitutes
incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence, whether it involves the use of
print, audio-visual or electronic media or any other means;
10. Also emphasizes that no religion should be equated with terrorism, as this
may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion
or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned;
(b) Incidents of religious hatred, discrimination, intolerance and violence,
which may be manifested by the derogatory stereotyping, negative profiling and
stigmatization of persons based on their religion or belief;

(j) To take all necessary and appropriate action, in conformity with
international standards of human rights, to combat hatred, discrimination,
intolerance and acts of violence, intimidation and coercion motivated by intolerance
based on religion or belief, as well as incitement to hostility and violence, with
particular regard to members of religious minorities in all parts of the world;

advocacy of religious hatred

      What does that mean?  The expression is so broad and ambiguous as to be stretched over anything we say or write. See the Ban Ki-moon quote about Fitna. 

no religion should be equated with terrorism

That boilerplate expression from previous resolutions should trigger alarm bells.  Who perpetrated the accursed abomination?  Were they Buddhists?  Were they Jews?  Were they Baptists?  No, they were Muslims!

Why  is Islam associated with Terrorism?  Maillot, New York, Madrid, London, Beslan & Mumbai: Get a  clue!!!  “Allahu akbar!” They shouted the takbir when they mounted their attacks.  Why?

Mohammad Atta, in his final message to the Magnificent 19, directed them to shout the Takbir while slaughtering because it terrifies disbelievers.
Psychological warfare

When the confrontation begins, strike like champions who do not want to go back to this world. Shout, ‘Allahu Akbar,’ because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers.

Where did Atta get that brilliant idea? From his role model, of course.

Sahih Bukhari 4.52.195
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet set out for Khaibar and reached it at night. He used not to attack if he reached the people at night, till the day broke. So, when the day dawned, the Jews came out with their bags and spades. When they saw the Prophet; they said, “Muhammad and his army!” The Prophet said, Allahu–Akbar! (Allah is Greater) and Khaibar is ruined, for whenever we approach a nation (i.e. enemy to fight) then it will be a miserable morning for those who have been warned.”

 

I will cast terror.

Allah cast terror.

Jews more afraid of Moe than of Allah

to strike terror

  • 8:57 (Dr. Munir Munshey)
  • 8:60 (Yusuf Ali)

victory through terror

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:
    Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:
    The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.
    1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey.
    2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.
    3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.
    4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
    5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.
  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

  • A/C.3/66/L.47/Rev.1
    • Promotion and protection of human rights: human
      rights questions, including alternative approaches for
      improving the effective enjoyment of human rights
      and fundamental freedoms
      • Combating intolerance, negative stereotyping,
        stigmatization, discrimination, incitement to violence and
        violence against persons, based on religion or belief
Underlining the importance of education in the promotion of tolerance, which
involves the acceptance by the public of and its respect for religious and cultural
diversity, including with regard to religious expression, and underlining also the fact
that education, in particular at school, should contribute in a meaningful way to
promoting tolerance and the elimination of discrimination based on religion or
belief,

 

1. Expresses deep concern at the continued serious instances of derogatory
stereotyping, negative profiling and stigmatization of persons based on their religion
or belief, as well as programmes and agendas pursued by extremist organizations
and groups aimed at creating and perpetuating negative stereotypes about religious
groups, in particular when condoned by Governments

2. Expresses concern that the number of incidents of religious intolerance,
discrimination and related violence, as well as of negative stereotyping of
individuals on the basis of religion or belief, continues to rise around the world,
condemns, in this context, any advocacy of religious hatred against individuals that
constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence, and urges States to
take effective measures, as set forth in the present resolution and consistent with
their obligations under international human rights law, to address and combat such
incidents;
3. Condemns any advocacy of religious hatred that constitutes incitement to
discrimination, hostility or violence, whether it involves the use of print, audiovisual
or electronic media or any other means;

(f) Adopting measures to criminalize the incitement to imminent violence
based on religion or belief;
(g) Understanding the need to combat denigration and the negative religious
stereotyping of persons, as well as incitement to religious hatred, by strategizing and
harmonizing actions at the local, national, regional and international levels through,
inter alia, education and awareness-raising;

(d) To make a strong effort to counter religious profiling, which is
understood to be the invidious use of religion as a criterion in conducting
questionings, searches and other law enforcement investigative procedures;

education

      Indoctrination! They want our schools to inculcate tolerance for that which is absolutely intolerable: a war cult which seeks to conquer or kill us.

incidents of intolerance

Including Fitna, the Motoons and Rev. Jones trying & burning the Qur’an.  Refer to the OIC’s Islamophobia Observatory for examples.

advocacy of hatred

Recall the remarks of Ban Ki-moon on Fitna.

Reuters quotes U.N. Secretary General Ban 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.”

 

incitement to imminent violence

          Recall the remarks of Ban Ki-moon on Fitna, quoted above.  Ban equates exposure of incitement to incitement.

religious profiling

Why waste time patting down Granny when all recent terror plots have been hatched or perpetrated by young Muslim males?  When you hear hoof beats, do you look for horses or unicorns?

They want to make it illegal to utter and publish any negative information about Islam.  They want to block our security personnel from scrutinizing those most likely to perpetrate terror attacks.  In fine, they are trying to disarm and disable us so that we can not mount an effective defense against their jihad.

Take Action!

Go to http://www.congress.org/ , create a free account, enter your Zip Code and tell your Representative & Senators to require the State Department to demand a vote on these resolutions and vote NO! in the General Assembly.  And share this information with everyone who will read or listen.

These resolutions have no legal force, but they have the effect of legitimizing national blasphemy laws which are used to persecute indigenous religious minorities in lands conquered and dominated by Muslims.   These resolutions are a stepping stone to their tactical objective: amending ICERD to make all questioning and criticism an offense punishable by law.

Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion: Mandate Extension


The initial draft resolution on the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, tabled  June 7, consisted of three boilerplate paragraphs and an enumerated list of seven items.

A revised draft tabled June 9 consisted of four boilerplate paragraphs and an enumerated list of seven items.

A revised draft tabled June 11 by Spain for the European Union  consisted of eight proposed boiler plate paragraphs and an enumerated list of  seven items.  It appears on initial inspection that the first four paragraphs and seven enumerated items are the same as the other revised draft.  But the four new proposed paragraphs are different.

On June 14, Pakistan submitted proposed amendments on behalf of the OIC.

They would extend the Reporteur’s mandate to include:

  • Examination of incidents of incitement to religious hatred, stereotyping, etc. and recommend   remedial measures.
  • Encourage adoption of policies to ensure respect for places of worship and public expressions of belief.
  • Report on instances of violation of the right to freedom of religion.
  • Working closely with mass media to ensure the creation of an atmosphere of respect and tolerance for religions…

Resolution 14/L.5/Rev.1 Freedom of religion or belief: Mandate of the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief.  This draft is expected to be voted on June 18.   It consists of four preambular paragraphs and an enumerated list of fifteen items.  Eight of these need some attention.

  1. Condemns all forms of intolerance and discrimination based on religion or belief,  as well as violations of the freedom of thought, conscience, religion or belief,
  2. Stresses that everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion or belief, which includes the freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of one’s choice and the freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest one’s religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance,
  3. Condemns any advocacy of religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence,
  4. Deplores the overall rise in instances of intolerance and violence directed against  members of many religious and other communities in various parts of the world,
  5. Deplores also the global rise and number of incidents of religious hatred, discrimination, intolerance and violence, which may be manifested by the derogatory.   stereotyping as well as stigmatization of persons based on their religion or belief,
  6. Expresses serious concern at all attacks on religious places, sites and shrines in violation of international law, in particular human rights and humanitarian law, including  any deliberate destruction of relics and monuments,
  7. Emphasizes that, restrictions on the freedom to manifest one’s religion or belief are permitted only if limitations are prescribed by law, are necessary to protect public safety, order, health or morals, or the-fundamental rights and freedoms of others, are non-discriminatory and are applied in a manner that does not vitiate the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion,
  8. Emphasizes the important role of media in the creation and promotion of an atmosphere of respect and tolerance for religious and cultural diversity, as well as – multiculturalism,
  1. Do they really condemn dhimmitude, which subjugates conquered Christians in a sub human state of submission?  Do the really condemn violations of freedom of religion, specifically the death penalty for apostasy from Islam and non-recognition of conversions to Christianity?  I doubt it.
  2. Does that include the freedom to be totally secular, or atheist?  Does that include the right to change one’s religion from Islam to another faith?  Yeah, right.
  3. Do they really condemn the Qur’anic denunciation of Jews and Christians as the worst of living creatures and its cursing of them?  Do they really condemn its declaration of perpetual war against them?  Yeah, right.
  4. Do they really deplore the burning of churches in Kenya, Indonesia and Pakistan? Do they really deplore the mass murder of Christians and Ahmadia?
  5. It is obvious that the reference is to the Motoons and  moves to ban minarets, the hijab & niqab.
  6. And I have some beach front land to sell you in Arizona.
  7. Of course the Pact of Umar met all those criteria.  Yeah, right. Try to build a church in Egypt.
  8. The authors deserve to go to Hell.  Any delegates voting for it should go with them.  It is not possible to express my contempt & detestation for them in polite terms.
  • “important role of media: self censorship”: The HRC is demanding that the press, broadcast media and bloggers not publish anything negative about Moe’s War Cult.
  • “promotion of an atmosphere of respect and tolerance for religious and cultural diversity”:  The idea of promoting respect & tolerance for a War Cult responsible for 270*106 premature deaths in the last 1387 years is unconscionable.  Nobody with a scintilla of morality would suggest it.  No self respecting lover of liberty who knows about the doctrines & practices of Islam will accept it.

This blog post would be illegal in several  nations as it is.  Recent Combating Defamation Resolutions passed by the HRC & General Assembly would specifically outlaw the last item in the unordered list immediately above.

At the end of November, the Ad Hoc Committee on Elaboration of Complementary Standards is scheduled to meet for the purpose of drafting a protocol to ICERD would enshrine their censorship demands in  binding international law.

Islam has declared and is prosecuting war against us. We need to be free to identify and accurately describe the enemy.  Islam is striving to criminalize that which is essential to our self-defense,   We must counter attack; there is only one way to do it.  ICERD, ICCPR & CPPCG contain provisions which, enforced, would require that Islam be proscribed by law.

We must make the world, particularly the World Court, painfully aware of those provisions of international human rights law and the Islamic doctrines which violate them.  The International Qur’an Petition is our best weapon.  We must use it!  For the love of liberty, sign that petition, send its url to everyone you can influence, with an exhortation to sign and forward it.

State Department Principle: Hypocrisy


I have reproduced an excerpt from a speech delivered byHarold Hongju Koh. Legal Adviser, U.S. Department of State to the Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law in Washington, DC  on  March 25, 2010.  I have added emphasis to some crucial statements and  intersperced my commentary.

When the Obama Administration took office, we faced two choices with respect to the Human Rights Council: we could continue to stay away, and watch the flaws continue and possibly get worse, or we could engage and fight for better outcomes on human rights issues, even if they would not be easy to achieve. With the HRC, as with the ICC and other for a, we have chosen principled engagement and strategic multilateralism. While the institution is far from perfect, it is important and deserves the long-term commitment of the United States, and the United States must deploy its stature and moral authority to improve the U.N. human rights system where possible. This is a long-term effort, but one that we are committed to seeing through to success consistent with the basic goals of the Obama-Clinton doctrine: principled engagement and universality of human rights law.

HRC members are elected to the council on a regional basis.  The realities of geopolitics dictate  the fact that the enemies of human rights will always have a majority on the council.  Our side will continue to be out voted, no matter how we pursue our principles.  Our engagement is ineffectual.

Our inaugural session as an HRC member in September saw some important successes, most notably the adoption by consensus of a freedom of expression resolution, which we co-sponsored with Egypt, that brought warring regional groups together and preserved the resolution as a vehicle to express firm support for freedom of speech and expression. This resolution was a way of implementing some of the themes in President Obama’s historic speech in Cairo, bridging geographic and cultural divides and dealing with global issues of discrimination and intolerance.
