Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Open Letter To Rick Santorum

Dear Mr. Santorum,

Your answer to a question about national security issues involving
Afghanistan  exposes a vital element of truth on the surface,
while an unpleasant stream of hypocrisy flows beneath the

Thanks and a tip of the hat to Paul Hoffman, whose
Facebook post brought to my attention Robert Spencer’s post, where I found this video


do you want to wait?  Until the security of our country is
ensured, that’s what the job of the commander of chief is and you make
that decision, not the generals–you make that decision based on an
analysis of how virulent the
threat of radical Islam
is and you confront that threat not just militarily, and importantly,
not just militarily, you
confront it first by being honest
with the
American public
about what this threat is.

This President has sanitized every defense document,
everything, the word radical Islam does not appear anywhere , why?
because we are fighting political correct — we are trying to fight
this politically correct war
and not being honest with the American
public as to who the enemy is, how virulently they are and why they
hate us and what we must do to stop…


how long ?

The question of the duration of our occupation of
Afghanistan can not be answered with a clock, calendar or time

strategic objectives

national security

If the strategic objective is to permanently
end  Afghanistan’s membership in the set of state sponsors of
terrorism and prevent Afghanistan from being used as a training ground
and staging area for terrorists, then the eradication of Islam from
Afghanistan is the criteria for ending the occupation. We bring the
troops home when the population of Afghanistan and their government are
totally free from the influence of the damnable doctrines of Islam
which inculcate hatred and enjoin genocidal conquest which is won by
casting terror.

In that case, you remove our troops from Afghanistan
when its population is either apostatized or converted and its
government is able and willing to secure its borders
against infiltration from neighboring countries infested with

free, democratic & secure

If the strategic objective is, as Shrub stated, a
free, democratic, secure & prosperous Afghanistan with a stable
government which respects human equality, dignity & rights,
then cleansing Afghanistan from the infestation of Islam  is
insufficient.  In this case, Afghanistan must be cleansed from its
long tradition of tribalism and its honor/shame culture as well.
Good luck with that; measure the occupation in millenia, not

how virulent

how infectious

Islam spread from Mecca & Medina to infect all
of Arabia, North Africa, the Levant, nearly half of Asia and South East
Europe in a few centuries. Infected persons now infest Western Europe
and America and are spreading the infection through our prisons and
inner cities.

how malignant

It is impossible to count with accuracy, the many
innocent victims of Islam, but the best estimate runs to 270 million.

radical Islam

radical Englishmen

Were the founders fighting ‘radical’ Englishmen in
the Revolution against King George or were they fighting his army?

radical Nazis

Was the greatest generation in combat against
‘radical’ Nazis ?  Were those ‘radicals’ a tiny minority of Nazis?
Was there a peaceful majority of Nazis who did not want to participate
in world conquest?

radical Communism

Did millions die of starvation at the hands of
Stalin, Mao & Pot because of an extraordinary, ‘radical’ variant of
International Communism?  Was the Cold War fought against ‘radcal’
Communism or the real thing?

radical Muslims

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to
relive it. I quote from Wikipedia’s entry on the First
Barbary War
:  “On
October 11, 1784, Moroccan pirates seized the brigantine 
Betsey.[2]   “Algeria
began piracy against the U.S. on July 25, 1785 with the capture of the
Maria and the Dauphin a week later.[5]

Where the Barbary Pirates ‘radicals’, ‘perverting’,
‘distorting’ and ‘twisting’ normative Islamic doctrine into a perverted
form, or were they acting in obedience to Allah; emulating their
Prophet?  Thomas Jefferson and John Adams put the question to
Tripoli’s Ambassador in 1785. His reply is a clue for you.

was written in
their Koran
, that all nations which had not acknowledged the
Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of
the faithful to plunder and enslave;
and that every mussulman
who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise.
He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one
slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck
of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third
in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into
the foe
that they cried out for quarter at once. 


Is that true? Is it really written in their Koran
that they have a right and duty to plunder and enslave?

right & duty

Jihâd (holy
fighting in Allâh’s Cause) is ordained for you
(Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing
which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you.
Allâh knows but you do not know.

And fight them
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.

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

Ordained means it is Allah’s law. “fight until” makes the statements
imperative.  The Koran commands Muslims to wage perpetual war
against disbelievers.


They ask you (O Muhammad ) about the spoils of war.
Say: “The spoils
are for Allâh and the Messenger
So fear Allâh and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey
Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), if you are believers.

And know that whatever
of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is
assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger
and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad )], (and also)
the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have
believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad
) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the
two forces met (the battle of Badr) – And Allâh is Able to do all

It is not for a
Prophet that he should have prisoners of war
(and free them with
ransom) until he
had made a great slaughter
(among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of
this world
(i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives),
but Allâh desires
(for you) the Hereafter
. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

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
, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a
group (of them) you
made captives

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

And abundant spoils
that they will capture. And Allâh is Ever All-Mighty, All-Wise.

Isn’t that special: the Koran has rules for
distribution of spoils, in anticipation of offensive warfare.  Moe
got the top 205, first pick of the spoils.  And as a Prophet, Moe
was not allowed to ransom prisoners until he had made great slaughter.
We learned that Moe’s motivation was mercenary and Allah’s is blood

Moe besieged a local Jewish settlement, overcame
them with terrorism and seized their property, enslaving their widows
& orphans.  Allah promised the Muslims “abundant spoils”.


O you who believe! What
is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the
Cause of Allâh
(i.e. Jihâd) you cling heavily to the

Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter?
But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with
the Hereafter.

If you march not
, He
will punish you with a painful torment
and will replace you by
another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allâh is Able to do
all things.

No blame or sin is there upon the blind, nor is there blame or sin upon
the lame, nor is there blame or sin upon the sick (that they go not
forth to war). And whosoever
obeys Allâh and His Messenger
(Muhammad ), He will admit him to
Gardens beneath which rivers flow
(Paradise); and whosoever turns back, He
will punish him with a painful torment

O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will
save you from a painful torment

That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and
fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives
that will be better for you, if you but know!

(If you do so) He
will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which
rivers flow
, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of ‘Adn ­ Eternity
[‘Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success.

If Muslims do  not join the jihad, they will go
to Hell;
if the fight, they will go to  There is a long and esoteric hadith
about Umar’s sending the army to fight the great nations, in which a
Muslim General is quoted as explaining things to a Persian General in
similar terms.   Sahih Bukhari 4.53.386

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


“Its Islam, stupid!”

What Allah commanded and Moe exemplified is
Islam, the real thing, not a distortion, twisting or perversion of
Islam. There is no such thing as radical Islam.  Islam is what Moe
preached & practiced, not the anodyne, passive & benevolent
religion you wish it would be.

not just militarily

Islam can not be defeated militarily short of
wholesale extermination.  If you are unable or unwilling to kill
every Muslim on the face of the earth, then you must break their faith, you must induce mass

expose Allah

Effectively combating Islam requires inducing mass
apostasy by introducing the Ummah to the reality of Allah and his
Messenger, their true character and works.  You must effectively
discredit Moe, and thereby descredit Allah. You must expose the fallacy
of Allah’s promises.

war of ideas

If you would win this war, list the ideas of Islam
and the ideas of Western Civilization and prove our ideas to be
superior to theirs, in intrinsic merit as well as empirical results.

honest about the threat

When you add adjectives or modifiers to the name of
the enemy, you are not being honest.  The enemy is Islam, not
‘radical Islam’. In the long run, the threat is existential; Islam is
Hellbent on global conquest.  In the short run, the threat is
continued and escalating attacks, large and small, against civilian
targets.  Once Iran obtains a nuke and couples it with a delivery
system, our cities will be in grave danger.

politically correct

President Bush called Islam a “great religion of
peace” because he knew that, if the public knew the truth, there would
be a massive popular demand for the eradication of the
enemy.   President Obama repeats the same lie and declares
that we are not at war against Islam because he is a traitor, one of
them, not one of us.


President Obama has removed all reference to the
false meme which has been substituted for the name of the enemy because
he is politically correct, not factually correct.

In order to win, we need to identify and truthfully
describe the enemy, its intentions and capacity. The traitor in the
White House has no desire to defeat the enemy because he is one of
them, at the head of the enemy’s fifth column.
Removing all acknowledgment of the nexus between Islamic doctrine and
terrorism is in compliance with the demands of Islam and the United

the enemy

Islam, as revealed & exemplified by Moe.


Islam demands that only Allah be worshiped, “alltogether and everywhere“. Allah demands “great slaughter“. The gates of Paradise will not
swing open to Muslims until they exterminate the Jews.

why they
hate us

Because we are not Muslims. Disbelief is a status
offense, called Kufr: rebellion against Allah, the punishment for which
is described in 5:33
and the definition of which is found in Tafsir Ibn Kathir.

what we must do

Either cause Muslims to quit believing in Allah, his
threat & promise, breaking his yoke of slavery or cause them to
quit living.  That should be an easy choice.

I want you to:

Take your own advice, be honest about the identity
of the enemy, its character, ability & intentions and what we must
do to win this war and restore peace 7 security. First and foremost:
quit adding adjectives to the name of the enemy.

International Judge the Koran Day Update

Sunday, March 20, 2011 at 4p.m., the trial will start, lasting for four hours.  I doubt that is sufficient time, but it is not up to me.  Since Chowderhead backed out, Sheikh Imam Mohamed El Hassan has been recruited to defend the Koran.

The prosecution team is loaded with apostates. Ahmed Abaza, the prosecutor, is a convert to Christianity. Mr. Ahmed Paul is an expert witness, another apostate.  Sheikh Abdulla Al Sabah, another expert witness, also knows Islam from the inside, being an apostate.

According to the press release, the poll is running 69% in favor of immolation.  That should make for some fun, because Dr. Jones previously promised that he would not burn the Koran.  How will he resolve that conflict?  Is he secretly hoping for an acquittal?

One of the charges could be difficult to prove: the Koran is accused of inciting murder, rape and terrorist activities. The Koran commands Muslims to engage in perpetual warfare but I am not convinced that meets the legal definition of murder.  It does sanction sexual exploitation of slaves and commands terrorism.  If you doubt this, visit and search for right hands possess; you will find plenty of evidence of rape.  A search for strike terror will bring up direct evidence of the last charge.

The event appears to be drawing little attention from the print media, with only two articles showing up this week in a Google search, but it fares far better in the blogs. I know that there is some government interest because my blog posts about it have been read by the local police and the Department of Homeland Security.  Even a local television station read my most recent previous update post.  There is also some international interest: the OIC Islamophobia Report for February mentioned International Judge the Koran day.

For those of us who can not travel to Gainsville, Florida for the event, it will be broadcast live on the internet at

International Judge the Koran Day: Update

STAND UP AMERICA NOW! claims in a press release that Anjem Choudary has confirmed acceptance of an invitation to serve as defense attorney for the Koran at their International Judge the Koran Day event scheduled for March 20, 2011.

In view of the no show on the third, I don’t expect Choudary to go to Florida to defend the Koran.  In view of his conduct in television and radio interviews, I am sure that he would attack those who question the Koran instead of defending it against their charges.   Anjem Choudary’s  participation should greatly enhance the event’s media presence and coverage.

The Koran is accused of inciting murder, rape and terrorist activities.  It is under suspicion of the direct or indirect murder of millions of people around the world.”

Inciting murder? It incites war, with two chapters entirely devoted to it and several more heavily involved, resulting in an estimated 2.7*108 deaths since 622. In citing rape?  Beyond any doubt.  Seven chapters contain this expression: “right hands possess”.  I want you to see how it is used; here is a very clear example.  Muslims are given license to rape captives and slaves.  Sexual exploitation of slaves is not a barrier to admission to Paradise.

23:1. Successful indeed are the believers.

23:2. Those who offer their Salât (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness.

23:3. And those who turn away from Al-Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk, falsehood, and all that Allâh has forbidden).

23:4. And those who pay the Zakât .

23:5. And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts)
23:6. Except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, for then, they are free from blame;

23:7. But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors;

23:8. Those who are faithfully true to their Amanât (all the duties which Allâh has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts etc.) and to their covenants;

23:9. And those who strictly guard their (five compulsory congregational) Salawât (prayers) (at their fixed stated hours).

23:10. These are indeed the inheritors.

23:11. Who shall inherit the Firdaus (Paradise). They shall dwell therein forever.

Inciting terrorist activities?  Allah said that he would cast terror and that he cast terror.  He also commanded Muslims to build a mighty army to terrify their enemies.

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.

International Judge the Koran Day

Today’s email brought a press release from Stand Up America, announcing an upcoming event: International Judge the Koran Day.  The new Facebook group has grown from 60 to 72 supporters in the last few hours.

It appears that the planned event is inchohate at present. Rev. Terry Jones posted this video in which he asks for our advice about what to do with the Koran.

Exactly what he will do March 20, 2011 from 6 to 8 pm is unknown, but I am sure that, whatever it is, it will arouse the ire of Muslims and draw protest from politicians and pundits.

I suggest that Rev. Jones open the Koran and read the parts which curse and declare war against Jews & Christians. The parts that mandate genocide should be read along with them.

Furthermore, those Korans collected for the  canceled bonfire  should be distributed to churches, read from the pulpet and preserved in the church’s library so that the congregation can read it.

A moot trial of Moe could well be scheduled for his birthday which falls about February 4, 2012.  That  timing would allow plenty of time for planning and preparation.

Islam considers the Arabic Koran to be authentic, translations are deprecated. Translations lack the Arabic poetry; the magic is in the sound, which is why Muslim students learn it in Arabic even if they do not understand that language.

Muslims will contend that translations do not accurately convey the meaning of the Koran. That claim fades when applied to tafsir & hadith. The hadith tell us what Moe did, which is the best possible indication of what the Koran meant to him. Informed readers can visit the Quranic Arabic Corpus to see what the Arabic words mean.  We can also visit sites such as Islam Awakened to read and compare multiple parallel translations.

Islamic law is based primarily on the Koran & hadith. It shows us what the jihad verses mean with great clarity.
When Caliph Umar conquered the Levant, he made the indigenous people sign a treaty of protection, now known as the Pact of Umar. One of its provisions was “We shall not teach the Qur’an to our children.”.   This little gem comes from an early attempt to codify Islamic law.

Malik’s Muwatta Book 21, Number 21.2.7:

Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar said that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, forbade travelling with a Qur’an in the land of the enemy. Malik commented, “That is out of fear that the enemy will get hold of it.”

Why would Moe fear the enemy gaining possession of  Allah’s book?  Why would Umar forbid teaching it to dhimmi’s children?  Could it be that it contains incriminating evidence?

Koran Toilet Paper

Muslim Facebook Boycott Protests ‘koran toilet paper’ was uttered and published 10/19/’09 in response to a threatened Muslim boycott of Facebook. The Muslims were demanding the deletion of a Facebook group “Koran Toilet Paper Roll”.   Posted at Freedom Ain’t Free, it has received  532 page views, 9 of them on September 8.

I do not know how many page views it has received  on my VOX blog, but recently it has been the most popular post.   That post comes up #9 in the Google SERP.   That post drew 17 of 70 page views to 10 p.m. today.

Just in case readers are looking for the literal product, I did a search for novelty tp.

  • Just Toilet Paper does not offer Koran tp. They do offer  custom printing.

That search was a bust.  A German man tried to market Qur’an tp four years ago and got arrested, which may have put a damper on the market.

KTPR was taken down by Facebook, briefly restored, and disappeared.  It has been replaced by two smaller groups  which are less active as well as less popular.

The group demanding KTPR’s deletion is still going, but not extremely active.

It is fun to joke about using the Qur’an for peri-anal  hygiene but, the practice can have consequences.  Some inks can be irritating and  coated paper can cause paper cuts, which can become infected, resulting in painful boils.  I suggest using the  less expensive paper back editions that ain’t printed on  thin coated paper.

With the preliminaries out of the way, its time to get down to the serious stuff.   The issue is not covered in the Qur’an, so we turn to the hadith.  The fun starts in Sahih Bukhari 1.4.157 with a narration in which the Profit asks his companion to bring him three stones,  but not bone or dung.

Sunan Abu Dawud 1.7 makes the prohibition explicit.

Book 1, Number 0007:
Narrated Salman al-Farsi:

It was said to Salman: Your Prophet teaches you everything, even about excrement. He replied: Yes. He has forbidden us to face the qiblah at the time of easing or urinating, and cleansing with right hand, and cleansing with less than three stones, or cleansing with dung or bone.
Why should Muslims be prohibited from wiping their butts with dried camel dung or old bones?  Why would anyone consider using a piece of crap for that purpose?  But that’s beside the point.  Moe has an answer for you.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 1, Number 0039:
Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas’ud:

A deputation of the jinn came to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and said: O Muhammad, forbid your community to cleans themselves with a bone or dung or charcoal, for in them Allah has provided sustenance for us. So the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) forbade them to do so.

You thought jinn were mythical, didn’t you?  But Moe met with a delegation of jinn who told him that Allah provided bones and dried dung for them to eat. If they eat dried dung, whats the problem?   They could just wait for the crap on the soiled items to dry.

The Prophet said to use three clean stones.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 1, Number 0041:
Narrated Khuzaymah ibn Thabit:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) was asked about cleansing (after relieving oneself). He said: (One should cleanse oneself) with three stones which should be free from dung.
But there’s more; stones ain’t enough, you  should use water, too.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 1, Number 0044:
Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: The following verse was revealed in connection with the people of Quba’: “In it are men who love to be purified” (ix.108). He (AbuHurayrah) said: They used to cleanse themselves with water after easing. So the verse was revealed in connection with them.
Ain’t those great suggestions?  But they are more than suggestions, they are law.  Book e of Reliance of the Traveller  contains the rules of ritual purity.   This is not suitable for children or overly sensitive adults.

e9.0: Going to Lavatory  [Emphasis added to interesting parts.]

e9.1: Recommended Measures

It is recommended when one intends to use the lavatory:

-1- to put something on one’s feet, unless there is an excuse (O:such as not having shoes);

-2- to cover the head (O:even if only with a handkerchief or other);

-3- to set aside anything on which there is the mention of Allah Most High. His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace), or any revered name (O:like those of prophets or angels).  If one enters with a ring (O:on which something worthy of respect is written), one closes one’s hand around it;

-4- to ready stones (N: or other suitable material (def:e9.5) ) (O:if one uses them) to clean oneself of filth (N:though water alone is sufficient);

-5- to say before entering:

“In the name of Allah. O Allah, I take refuge in You from demons, male and female,”

and after leaving,

“[O Lord,] Your forgiveness: Praise be to Allah who rid me of the hurt and gave me health”;

-6- to enter with the left foot first and depart with the right foot first (and this, together with (3) and

-5- above, are not only for indoors, but recommended outdoors as well);

-7- not to raise one’s garment until one squats down to the ground (O: to keep one’s nakedness covered as much as possible) and to lower it before one stand up;

-8- to put most of one’s weight on the left foot while squatting;

-9- not to spend a long time;

-10- not to speak;

-11- when finished urinating, for men to squeeze the penis with the left hand from base to head (O: recommended because this is where the urethra is, and for women to squeeze their front between thumb and forefinger) (N: so urine does not exit later and nullify one’s ablution) pulling lightly three times (O: this being recommended when one thinks the urine has stopped, though if one thinks it has not, this is obligatory);

-12- not to urinate while standing (O: which is offensive) unless there is an excuse (N: such as when standing is less likely to spatter urine on one’s clothes than sitting, or when sitting is a hardship);

-13- not to clean oneself with water in the same place one relieved oneself, if it might spatter, though if in a lavatory one need not move to a different place;

-14- to distance oneself from others if outdoors and to screen oneself;

-15- not to urinate into holes, on hard places, where there is wind, in waterways, where people gather to talk, on paths, under fruit trees, near graves, in still water, or in less than 216 liters of running water;

-16- and not to relieve oneself with one’s front or rear facing the sun, moon, or the Sacred Precinct in Jerusalem.

e9.2: Prohibitions

It is unlawful to urinate on anything edible, bones, anything deserving respect, a grave or in a mosque, even if into a receptacle.


It is unlawful to urinate or defecate with one’s front or rear towards the direction of prayer when outdoors and there is no barrier to screen one, though this is permissible when one is indoors within a meter and a half of a barrier at least 32 cm. high, or in a hole that deep. When one is not this close to such a barrier at least 32 cm. high, or in a hole that deep. When one is not this close to such a barrier, it is not permissible except in a lavatory, where, if the walls are farther from one than the maximal distance or are shorter than the minimal height, relieving oneself with front or rear towards the direction of prayer is permissible, though offensive.

e9.4: The Obligation of Cleaning Oneself of Filth

It is obligatory to clean oneself of every impure substance coming from one’s front or rear, though not from gas, dry worms or stones, or excrement without moisture.

e9.5: Use of dry substances or water

Stones suffice to clean oneself, though it is best to follow this by washing with water. Anything can take the place of stones that is a solid, pure, removes the filth, is not something that deserves respect or is worthy of veneration, nor something that is edible (O: these being five conditions for the validity of using stones (N: or something else) to clean oneself of filth without having to follow it by washing with water).

But it is obligatory to wash oneself with water if:

-1- one has washed away the filth with a liquid other than water, or with something impure;

-2- one has become soiled with filth from a separate source;

-3- one’s waste has moved from where it exited (n: reaching another part of one’s person) or has dried;

-4- or if feces spread beyond the inner buttocks (N: meaning that which is enfolded when standing), or urine moved beyond the head of the penis, though if they do not pass beyond them, stones suffice.

e9.5: How to clean oneself

It is obligatory (N: when cleaning oneself with a dry substance alone) to both remove the filth, and to wipe three times, even when once is enough to clean it, doing this either with three pieces (lit. “stones”) or three sides of one piece. If three times does not remove it, it is obligatory to (N: repeat it enough to) clean it away (O: as that is the point of cleaning oneself. Nawawi says in al-Majmu’ that cleaning oneself (N: with a dry substance) means to remove the filth so that nothing remains but a trace that could not be removed unless one were to use water) (N: and when this has been done, any remaining effects of filth that could have been done, any remaining effects of filth that could have only been removed with water are excusable).  An odd number of strokes is recommended. One should wipe from front to back on the right side with the first piece, similarly wipe the left with the second, and wipe both sides and the anus with the third. Each stroke must begin at a point on the skin that is free of impurity.

It is offensive to use the right hand to the oneself of filth.

e9.6: Cleaning before or after ablution

It is best to clean oneself of filth before ablution, though if one waits until after it to clean, the ablution is nevertheless valid(N: provided that while cleaning, the inside surface of the hand (def: e7.4 does not touch the front or rear private parts).

If one waits until after one’s dry ablution (tayammum, def:e12) to clean away filth, the dry ablution is not valid (A: because lack of filth is a condition for it).

E9.1-3 instructs Muslims not to carry the Qur’an into the lavatory. E9.5 is explicit: you must not use any object that deserves respect or veneration.  Since they do not consider translations to be sacred,  for maximum  offense (if that is the intention) you should desecrate an Arabic Qur’an.  The problem with toilet paper is that it could  be made from recycled Qur’ans.

The right hand prohibition has a cultural connection. Seventh century Arabs did not use eating utensils, they  grabbed food out of common pots with their right hands. Amputating the right hand of a thief forces him to use his left hand for everything, which could introduces feces into the common pot.   Perhaps that is why Risala (Maliki Fiqh) gives this instruction.

4.1e The place is rubbed with the hand while the water is being poured until it is cleaned of noxiousness. It is enough that he thinks it probable if he is able to do that. If he is not able to do it because his hand is cut off or short, he delegates someone who is able to touch that place, be it wife or slavegirl.

They’re Trying to Shoot down the Dove

I received an email, reproduced below, from the Dove World Outreach Center, which originated the International Burn a Koran Day.  Pastor Jones reports that their bank  has called their mortgage and their insurance company has canceled their policy.

While Pastor Jones did not state a cause for those actions, I  assume that the bank and insurer came under pressure from CAIR.  I hope that Landmark Legal or some other firm will take the case on and litigate pro bono  and seek  immediate discovery.  Nobody should be punished, by public or private agency, for telling the truth.

I would prefer to see the Koran read not  burned.  It is only by reading Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis & jurisprudence that we discover how evil  Islam is.  Burning the Koran is a symbolic act which draws attention to its contents.  I hope that the call to burn the Koran will encourage you to read it.

What does the Koran contain that makes Christians hate it?  It defames Jesus Christ, denying his paternity, divinity, crucifixion & resurrection. It curses Christians and it declares perpetual war against them.

That does not  bother you because you are an atheist?   Does the subjugation of women as chattel property bother you? Does  divine approval of wife beating bother you?

But you are a male, so that’s no problem; how about the prohibition of drinking & gambling, does that bother you?  My principal objection to Islam is its inculcation of hatred and incitement of violence.  After the accursed abomination 9/11, that should be sufficient for any rational person.

I am not in a financial position to aid the mission of Pastor Jones and his congregation.  If you are, I hope that you will consider that worthy cause.  All I can do is contribute a little publicity, and I am doing that right now.

Geert Wilders Trial: Deceptive Commentary

One of my Google Alerts led me to a post at Islam In Europe which disclosed the existence of an open letter from a group of Islam experts to the court In Amsterdam which is persecuting Geert Wilders.

a letter to the court

De Volkskrant, the  Dutch newspaper used by the prosecutors to document what Geert Wilders allegedly said in violation of Dutch hate speech law, published  a letter from a group of six Islam experts. It appears that this is the first of four “fact sheets” they intend to issue on the subject.

Unfortunately, the experts have engaged in the  Islamic art of al-taqeyya & kitman.  This blog post  exposes their lies.

Deen Research Center posted the original Dutch letter and an English translation on their blog . Their translation is easier to read than the Google translation.

  • Dr. Fred Leemhuis, Arabist, professor emeritus University of Groningen, vertaler De Koran, Unieboek 2007 The Koran translator, Union Book 2007
  • Dr. Jan Michiel Otto, Recht en bestuur 3e wereld, Sharia,  Directeur van Vollenhove Instituut, Faculteit der Rechtsgeleerdheid,  Universiteit Leiden
  • Dr. Gerard Wiegers, hoogleraar Religiestudies aan de Faculteit der -Professor Gerard Wiegers, Professor of Religious Studies at the Faculty of  Geesteswetenschappen van de Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA) Humanities of the University of Amsterdam (UvA)
  • Dr. Pieter Sjoerd van Koningsveld, emeritus hoogleraar islamologie Univ.Leiden Pieter Sjoerd van Koningsveld, emeritus professor of Islamic studies Univ.Leiden
  • Dr. Ruud Peters, Arabische Taal en Cultuur, Sharia expert, UVA -Professor Dr. Mr. Ruud Peters, Arabic Language and Culture, Sharia expert, UVA
  • Dr. Marlies ter Borg, auteur Koran en Bijbel in Verhalen, Unieboek 2007, redacteur Marlies ter Borg, author Koran and Bible Stories, Book Union in 2007, editor

Islam is a violent religion.


Mr Wilders refers, in support of its truths, often to the Koran. Please bring our professional knowledge of the Koran, to review his statements and method of quoting. We rely on taking the authoritative view of Professor F. Leemhuis, (Union Book 2007,

  • Wilders said: “Islam means submission and conversion of non-Muslims.” “A religion that seeks to eliminate others.” Dv 14
    • But in the Qur’an: “No compulsion in religion.” K. 2:256

The experts like Pickthall’s translation, so I will quote it, with a link to a table of ten parallel translations.

2:256. There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath grasped a firm handhold which will never break. Allah is Hearer, Knower.

To discover the circumstances behind the revelation of this ayeh, read Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir: No Compulsion in Religion.  Some of the Ansar had sworn to raise their children as Jews. When those Ansar converted, Muhammad did not force them to convert their children.  Despite this specificity, Ibn Kathir says that the ayeh has general applicability.  Another ayeh bears directly on this issue.

10:99. And if thy Lord willed, all who are in the earth would have believed together. Wouldst thou (Muhammad) compel men until they are believers?
10:100. It is not for any soul to believe save by the permission of Allah. He hath set uncleanness upon those who have no sense.

Unfortunately for the experts,  other ayat contradict  those three cited above.  At first glance,  Surah Al-Imran 110 appears to be irrelevant. But there is a hadith which clearly explains the meaning of the clause I have highlighted.

3:110. Ye are the best community that hath been raised up for mankind. Ye enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency; and ye believe in Allah. And if the People of the Scripture had believed it had been better for them. Some of them are believers; but most of them are evil-livers.

Sahih Bukhari  Volume 6, Book 60, Number 80:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Verse:–“You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind.” means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.

The wording varies slightly because Khan prefers his own translation of the Koran.  It is obvious that bringing disbelievers  to Islam in chains is not congruent with “no compulsion”.  It is also obvious that  hadith which contradict the Koran can not be authentic. How then do you explain its inclusion in the most authentic of the six canonical collections?  Is there something more?  Of course there is.

8:39. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah. But if they cease, then lo! Allah is Seer of what they do.

This ayeh answers two questions:

  1. Is Islam violent?
  2. Is Islam compulsive?

The verb is clear and obvious: fight.  Al-Anfal 39 is in the form of a fight until loop, with a compound terminal condition.

  • persecution is no more
  • religion is all for Allah.

Persecution is a reference to the Meccan habit of hassling Muslims, who were viewed as a threat to their livelihood. The second part of the compound terminal condition is absolutely clear:  only Allah is worshiped.   Click through to the parallel translations and observe the wording of the other translations.  The obvious meaning is  confirmed by confirmed by Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir: The Order to fight to eradicate Shirk and Kufr.

One hadith confirms the meaning of  this ayeh with extreme clarity. I have added emphasis to make the critical sentence  stand out.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”

Besides  several variants of that hadith, there are two others which remove all doubt. I will quote  excerpts, linking them to the hadith at USC-MSA for those who wish to read the context.

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...

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.”

Reliance of the Traveller, the handbook of Islamic law, provides the ultimate confirmation. The clause I emphasized says it all.


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) ).

The six eminent professors  claimed to refute Wilders with a single ayeh. Is it possible that those scholars with doctoral degrees in the field are unaware of the conflicting ayat, hadith and Shari’ah, or were they practicing the art of kitman, lying by obfuscation?

  • Wilders says: “And the Qur’an is the Mein Kampf of a religion that seeks to eliminate others …”
    • Mein Kampf (My struggle) calls for no more war.  The Koran is sometimes called for violence, in other cases to peace and reconciliation, for example:
      • “You will not shed each other’s blood.” K.2: 84-
      • “God calls for the house of peace.” K.10: 25
      • “Does God not an obstacle …  to …  peace among the people. “K.2: 224
      • “Think of God’s mercy to you when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and by His grace you became brethren;” K.3: 103

It seems that Hitler was intent on  imposing his racist system by force, invading much of Europe.  History shows us that Muhammad and his rightly guided caliphs  acted the same way in Arabia, Africa, Asia & Eastern Europe.

Take a good close look at the expert’s citation to 2:84.   What does it mean? Perhaps we should examine the full ayeh.

2:84. And when We made with you a covenant (saying): Shed not the blood of your people nor turn (a party of) your people out of your dwellings. Then ye ratified (Our covenant) and ye were witnesses (thereto).

This ayeh is about  infighting among the nation,  it is not about attacking other nations.  Lets give the next citation the same treatment.

10:25. And Allah summoneth to the abode of peace, and leadeth whom He will to a straight path.

This ayeh is explained in  Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir: Invitation to the Everlasting Gifts that do not vanish.

(And Allah calls to the Abode of Peace) When Allah mentioned the swiftness of this world and its termination, He invited people to Paradise and encouraged them to seek it. He called it the Abode of Peace.

See how passive Islam is?  Allah invites people to Paradise, the house of peace. Do the experts understand what a Muslim must do to gain admission to Paradise?  He must fight in Allah’s cause, participating in Jihad, killing and being killed to gain one of the best seats. See At-Taubah 111 & As-Saff 10-13 for the gritty details.  Would they try to fool us again?  Examine their next citation to find out.

2:224. And make not Allah, by your oaths, a hindrance to your being righteous and observing your duty unto Him and making peace among mankind. Allah is Hearer, Knower.

Ordinarily, I would quote the context to show you the egregious nature of the expert’s  deception, in this case I will not, because of the sexually explicit nature  of the ayeh which proceeds 224. Instead, I will provide a link to three parallel translations hosted by USC-MSA, which you can easily scroll to view the context without clicking extra links. 2:223.  Once again, Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir gives us a vital clue to the meaning of the ayeh in question: The Prohibition of swearing to abandon a Good Deed.

Allah commands, `You should not implement your vows in Allah’s Name to refrain from pious acts and severing the relations with the relatives, if you swear to abandon such causes.’(And make not Allah’s (Name) an excuse in your oaths) means, “Do not vow to refrain from doing good works. (If you make such vow then) break it, pay the Kaffarah and do the good work.”

Click the link to the tafsir, click the previous button, scroll to the bottom of the page and read the ayeh which is explained on the page I linked to. If you did not read the full context earlier, click the next button in the tafsir, scroll down to the bottom and read 2:226. It will then become clear to you that the experts misquoted an ayeh out of context for the purpose of deceiving the court by perverting the meaning of the verse.  Lets check the next citation.

3:103. And hold fast, all of you together, to the cable of Allah, and do not separate. And remember Allah’s favour unto you: How ye were enemies and He made friendship between your hearts so that ye became as brothers by His grace; and (how) ye were upon the brink of an abyss of fire, and He did save you from it. Thus Allah maketh clear His revelations unto you, that haply ye may be guided,

To discover the context, begin at 3:98 and  keep reading through 3:198.  Ibn Kathir explains this ayeh in his tafsir: The Necessity of Holding to the Path of Allah and the Community of the Believers. I have removed the Arabic script and emphasized the key part of this excerpt.

(And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah, and be not divided among yourselves.) It was said that,  (to the Rope of Allah) refers to Allah’s covenant, just as Allah said in the following Ayah,  (Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allah, and from men;) ﴿3:112﴾, in reference to pledges and peace treaties. (and remember Allah’s favor on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts together, so that, by His grace, you became brethren) ﴿3:103 ﴾.This was revealed about the Aws and Khazraj. During the time of Jahiliyyah, the Aws and Khazraj were at war and had great hatred, enmity and ill feelings towards each other, causing long conflicts and battles to occur between them. When Allah brought Islam, those among them who embraced it became brothers who loved each other by Allah’s grace, having good ties for Allah’s sake and helping each other in righteousness and piety.

This  ayeh is about Muslims being united in warfare against disbelievers, not about making peace with disbelievers. Another ayeh, which Muslims will not quote to us, exposes the reality of Islam’s attitude toward peace.

47:35.So do not falter and cry out for peace when ye (will be) the uppermost, and Allah is with you, and He will not grudge (the reward of) your actions.

The meaning should be obvious to you. If it is not, refer to Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir: Nullifying the Disbelievers’ Deeds and the Command to chase Them.

(So do not lose heart and beg for peace while you are superior.) meaning, in the condition of your superiority over your enemy. If, on the other hand, the disbelievers are considered more powerful and numerous than the Muslims, then the Imam (general commander) may decide to hold a treaty if he judges that it entails a benefit for the Muslims. This is like what Allah’s Messenger did when the disbelievers obstructed him from entering Makkah and offered him treaty in which all fighting would stop between them for ten years. Consequently, he agreed to that.


The experts advance to charges related to the short documentary created and published by Geert Wilders.

  • In the film Fitna quotes below were presented, together with “images of the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York (11/9/2001), and the attacks by Muslim extremists in Madrid and London, accompanied by images of victims.” DV7
  • Wilders cites a half sentence from Surah 47 verse 4
    “If you have an encounter with those who disbelieve than hew the necks of them and when ye have caused a bloodbath bind them in chains.” (Translation unknown, Theo van Gogh in focus)
  • Wilders suggests that this called for a Muslim in peacetime ‘infidels’ to kill. This suggestion is reinforced by the images of bombings of civilians in peacetime. With this half quoting of the Quran verse, he in trouble: the enemy is apparently slain first and then be bound in irons. Why corpses seem to be put in chains is not clear.

    The same verse, is now complete:

    “And when you have those who disbelieve [in battle] meet, turn them dead, but if you then prevail over them have obtained fascinates them firmly,
    later as a favor to them or release them or to buy them separately, when the burden of the war are made. “Sura 47 verse 4 Leemhuis:

    The full quote shows:

    • that this is a war is to kill enemy troops on the battlefield, and not to attack civilians in peacetime,
    • according to the Koran quote must stop killing one soldier when once more prevails. There is no elimination of the enemy.
    • the enemy from that moment must be captured to him after the war to be released.

This is in line with modern international law on war prisoner of war.

Lets take a close look at the cited ayeh.

47:4. Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens. That (is the ordinance). And if Allah willed He could have punished them (without you) but (thus it is ordained) that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He rendereth not their actions vain.

Did  the experts quote the full verse?  Is the translation accurate?  Several translators use different expressions:

  • when you have killed and wounded many of them
  • made wide slaughter among them
  • until ye have massacred them
  • till ye have made a great slaughter among them
  • until ye have made a great slaughter among them displays a break down of the Arabic text:      اثخنتموهم – you (p) exceeded in killing them/you weakened them;  the dictionary they link to  defines the Arabic word as subdued.  Note the phrase I highlighted; how does it compare to the variant expressions in the other translations?

Ibn Kathir has something important to tell us about this ayeh. The Command to strike the Enemies’ Necks, tighten Their Bonds, and then free Them either by an Act of Grace or for a Ransom

It appears that this Ayah was revealed after the battle of Badr. At that time, Allah reproached the believers for sparing many of the enemy’s soldiers, and holding too many captives in order to take ransom from them.(It is not for a Prophet to have captives of war until he had made a great slaughter (among the enemies) in the land. You desire the commodities of this world, but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter. Allah is Mighty and Wise. Were it not for a prior decree from Allah, a severe torment would have touched you for what you took.) (8:67-68)

The experts have played fast and loose with the facts. They cited page 7 of the indictment as linking the images of the devastation in London, Madrid & New York  to 47:4.  The Koran references on that page, associated with those images, are: 8:60 and 4:56, associated with the next frame.

47:4 is not displayed until three frames later.  The learned expert professors took the Koran out of context, but were not satisfied with that trick, they  also took the indictment out of context!

8:60, which is associated with the images of devastation, commands Muslims to accrue weapons and war horses to strike terror into the hearts of enemies, both known and unknown. 8:57, not cited in the documentary, commands Muslims to punish their victims severely to serve as an example for others they wish to threaten.

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.

  • Wilders Sura 8 verse 60: “Make preparations against them with what you can to force people to take this horse and to terrorize, terrorize Allah’s enemy and your enemy.” Dv7
  • Surah 8: 60-61 Pickthall: “And to make them as good as you can and deployable armaments horses ready for God’s enemy and your enemy so intimidating and apart from those others that you do not know, but God knows . And what you also helping to give God’s way, you will be reimbursed and you will not be wronged. And if they are inclined to peace, make this tendency and also put your trust in God; “
  • The translation of Wilders appears without a source, wherein ‘terrorize’ ie “the systematic instill terror by violence, by terrifying violence and control.” Leemhuis translates ‘instill fear’ “This is equal to scare away someone: a proven military strategy by means of war drums, production of weapons-without actually use – to persuade the enemy to refrain from violence. The deterrence strategy shown to prevent weapons of war. Compare the NATO strategy against the Soviet Union in the Cold War. The slogan of the NATO armed to the teeth at the time was “Peace is our Profession”. It worked.

Lets compare translations.

Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside them whom ye know not. Allah knoweth them. Whatsoever ye spend in the way of Allah it will be repaid to you in full, and ye will not be wronged.[Pickthall]

  • to strike terror into . [Abdullah Yusuf Ali]
  • frighten thereby the enemy [Shakir]
  • terrify thereby [Arberry]
  • strike terror into [Rodwell]
  • strike a terror into [Sale]

Lets see what  Muhammad had to say about terrorism.

1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey.
I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy),

What is the practical application of this tactic?

33:26. And He brought those of the People of the Scripture who supported them down from their strongholds, and cast panic into their hearts. Some ye slew, and ye made captive some.

  • “Destroy the infidels and polytheists, your (Allah’s) enemies and the enemies of the religion. Allah, count them and kill them until the very end. And let no one about. “Dv 7

    This sentence, with no source, is contrary to the Koran above quotes in their entirety in that direction, rather than a controlled ‘total war’ pages, and contrary to the Koran quote “no compulsion in religion. 2:256

But it is not contrary to 8:39 & 9:29 nor is it contrary to the infamous genocide hadith.  The quote is from a video of an Imam rousing the rabble to Jihad.

  • The comparisons between the texts as presented by Mr Wilders and the existing scientific knowledge of the contents of the Koran, we conclude first that the conclusion of Mr Wilders is not based on facts, but only on improperly constructed “facts”.

Scientific knowledge? Being Muslim makes them scientists, no reference to tafsir, hadith or  jurisprudence is required, just scientific expertise.

  • Second, a more general question arises about the statement of Mr Wilders that Islam is a violent religion. Could it actually be true that a religion is violent?

So Islam is peaceful, not violent?  How then do you explain the title of the 8:th surah: “The Spoils” ? Why does the “religion of peace” need rules for allocation and division of spoils of war?  Why does it need terms such as fei & ganimah to describe spoils of war?  Why did Allah give Muhammad special dispensation to accrue spoils?  Why did Allah say “Ye desire the lure of this world” to Muhammad in 8:67?    Why did Allah promise “abundant spoils that you will capture“. Why does Shari’ah say :”the caliph makes war on Jews and Christians”  and “the caliph fights all other peoples”?

  • Religion is a set of values, norms, and writings. Religion is preached and adhered to by people. Violence is an action committed by people and groups of people, not a religion. Religion itself is not violent or peaceful.

How do you explain the existence of Surah Al-Anfal & At-Taubah, which are entirely dedicated and devoted to warmongering?  How do you explain the existence of books of jihad  or expedition in four of the six canonical hadith collections?   How do you explain the communal obligation to attack disbelievers at least once in every year?  Doubt this?  Click the link above to Reliance of the Traveller, Search for Book O, Search for Chapter 9 and start reading.

  • Claiming a  religion as violent is a suggestive way to accuse a group of people, some believers, as being violent.

How did Hindu Kush get its name?  What does it mean?  Why are Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Iran and Egypt Islamic?  Was violence involved?

  • Scientific research indicates that in the Quran, as in the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Bible, both incitements to violence and peace are to be found. This can be verified by anyone.

Show me the New Testament book, chapter and verse  in which Jesus Christ issues open ended, outcome oriented commands to engage in conquest  without geographic or temporal limits; the equivalent of 8:39 & 9:29.   The ancient Hebraic conquest/genocide imperatives were limited to particular places and people, once they were completed, they expired.  Islamic jihad continues from 610 to Judgment Day.

The lesson learned: Islam is not more violent than Christianity.

  • Christianization and Islamization have been globally accepted voluntary and partly by force, if .., because fair to say that much about that history is not known.
  • It is known that many more victims died in internal conflicts among Christians, than the relatively few wars between Christians and Muslims. Conflicts such as the Thirty Years War or the war between Turkey and Persia dragged on longer and cost more casualties than the war against the Turks eg culminating in the Battle of Vienna.
  • The time when it was generally accepted that one faith is spread by the sword has passed. This applies to both Islam and Christianity. Extremists are an exception to the general consensus.

Christianity was co-opted by the Roman Empire.  Unlike Islam, it has no intrinsic war imperative.  Islam has a 1400 year record of rapine, accruing an estimated total of   270*106 victims.

Those are not extremists, they are salafists, emulators of Muhammad.  Muslims are commanded to  obey Allah and his Messenger. “Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad ) you have a good example to follow” .  What did he do?

Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 285:

Narrated Abu Ishaq:

Once, while I was sitting beside Zaid bin Al-Arqam, he was asked, “How many Ghazwat did the Prophet undertake?” Zaid replied, “Nineteen.” They said, “In how many Ghazwat did you join him?” He replied, “Seventeen.” I asked, “Which of these was the first?” He replied, “Al-‘Ashira or Al-‘Ashiru.”


  • Terrorists are not representative of Islam

    Radical Islamists committing attacks and now regularly seek to acquire state power in Muslim-majority countries. The latter, however, they very rarely succeed, what makes them resentful, and leads to new attacks. Most of the terrorist attacks by Islamists, have Muslim victims. Logically, the vast majority of Muslims disapproves of this violence.

Islam is not logical, it is a way of life imposed on people by force. 3:151 & 8:12 sanctify and mandate terrorism. 33:26 & 59:2 exemplify it. Islam’s founder declared that he was made victorious by terror.

  • There are also peaceful sounds within Islamic circles.

    Every Muslim knows that the word “Islam” comes from the same root as the word ‘salaam’ (Hebrew: “Shalom”), in both languages it means ‘peace’. With this knowledge, 138 (grown to 307) authoritative Muslims, political and spiritual leaders and intellectuals, have sent in 2007 an open letter to their Christian counterparts.

    “The future of the world depends on peace between Muslims and Christians. The basis for peace and understanding already exists … the love of God and neighbor in both religions and preached in both the Bible and the Koran can be found. “

Wikiislam has an etymology chart which makes the matter clear:

Word Arabic Meaning
Islam اسلام Submission
Salam سلام Well-being/Peace

The Ulema’s missive “A Common Word between Us and You”. is an obvious deception,  it is an extortion letter cleverly  disguised as an overture of peace.  One blog: Go Burn With Muhammad is entirely devoted to pointing out the malignant malarkey in that missive.

Arabist Hans Jansen wrote a brief rebuttal, this is a Google translation. .

The letter of retired professors, Wilders on the process, about the peacefulness of Islam, a trifle late to be desired. There are no references to sermons in the mosque, to manuals of Sharia, or Koranic commentaries. Also, the letter was not by Muslim religious leaders meeondertekend. The most important Muslim theologian is Tofiq Dibi agrees. The letter is a dream: if only that Islam is like the letter writers make.

In sermons in the mosque, in the manuals of the sharia and the Koran commentaries calling for the harassment, murder and make war on dissent. It is very easy to control. The Koran itself can very easily be interpreted as an instruction to intimidation, assassination, murder, and war – but when the Amsterdam court says that the true meaning of the Qur’anic text is just very peaceful, then all the problems with Islam course solved in one stroke. It is inconceivable for Muslims the Koran as a license to kill would dare conceive as the Amsterdam court maintains that the Koran is not actually a license to kill is.

Swiss Minaret Ban: Big Deal

Regular readers of my blog posts know that I waste few opportunities to blast Islam with facts. They must be wondering why I have not written about the Nov. 29 referendum which banned new minarets in Switzerland.  There are two primary reasons. First, I am not entirely in agreement with the concept. Second, I wanted to let others write first so that I could take the role of clean up writer.

First and foremost, I am opposed to superficial, symbolic attacks which accomplish nothing beyond the counter productive stimulation of Islamic resentment.  Beards, burkas & hijabs  are symbolic, but they are not more important to the wearer as they are to us. Their value is more than symbolic, they are warning signs. Like a skunk’s stripes and a rattle snake’s noisy tail, they serve to alert us to the proximity of danger.

Second, I perceive the vote to be a temporary victory.  I have little doubt that the result will be overturned in the courts. The vote serves mainly as a signal of rising public awareness of Islam’s true nature and the existential threat it poses to Western Civilization.

My readers know that I will take on anyone, without fear or favor.  While other writings have been more deserving of criticism, My choice did a better job of clarifying some of the issues involved.  Dr. Sami Alrabaa wrote an exclusive for Family Security Matters:  Minarets are Symbols of Bigotry. I will quote some good parts, but you really should click the link and read the entire article because the quotes which follow are taken out of context. .

It is also true that huge lavish mosques funded by petrodollars are being constructed to prove that Islam is omnipresent everywhere and Islam – the best religion on earth! – is increasingly being accepted and practiced all over the world.

The huge mosques & soaring minarets are symbols of Islamic supremacism & domination.

Minaret construction is an exhibition of political power spearheaded by Islamists. These “towers” are simply aggressive symbols of fanatic defying power.

Minaret construction has nothing to do with freedom of religion. It is a symbol of bigotry.

If we allow the erection of minarets without offering resistance, our silent acquiescence is a token of surrender. The Swiss electorate decided not to surrender, but they stopped short of effective resistance. They attacked symbolism, not substance.

But when it comes to referendum, the majority in the Western world would also reject Islam as a stone-age “religion.” I am pretty sure that if the Swiss referendum were held in other European countries, the majority would also vote in favor of banning the construction of minarets. The European public is better informed than their self-appointed defenders of Islam.

I am not yet convinced that a majority are fully aware of the nature of Islam. But the Swiss vote may indicate a trend of increasing awareness.  Lapidation may be a stone age execution method, but Moe had weapons made of more advanced materials. 610 was hardly part of the stone age.

It is also true that the Swiss and the rest of the world are not against Muslims practicing their own religion in peace like all followers of other religions.

Islam can not be practiced in peace. Jihad is an intrinsic and inseverable part of Islam. Al-Anfal & At-Taubah are permanent parts of Islamic scripture. If we are not against the practice of Islam, then we are passively surrendering.

If, however, people around the globe, especially in the West, read the Koran and Hadith and realize how this religion incites to hatred and violence against non-Muslims, and discrimination against women, they would classify it as an extremist ideology, as politically incorrect and demand banning it like all extremist organizations. Check out “Is Islam a Violent Faith?” and “Women in Hadith.”

Nevertheless, the world community, including Switzerland, accepts Islam as a “religion” and allows its followers to practice it under the principle of religious freedom.

We accept Islam as a “religion” and allow its practice, but if we read Islam’s canon of scripture and tradition we would reject it. Will anyone get a clue from those vital paragraphs?

Before the West accepts Islam as a religion it must demand that Muslim states reform Islam; accept/apply universal human rights and religious freedom in their societies.

Preaching hatred and violence must be banned and their perpetrators must be punished. Additionally, the free civilized world must demand from Muslims and their religious institutions and states: Drop all those atrocious passages from your Koran and Hadith if you want to be part of the civilized world.

So Islam must be reformed; the violent passages must be removed from its canon of scripture & tradition. You forgot one, Dr. Alrabaa :  Shari’ah.  Islamic law reflects Islamic scripture & tradition.  How many of those texts exist in book stores and in libraries all over the world?  How many exist in computer hard disks and web pages?  How do you hope to edit all of them?  Who will edit all the copies of Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir and Riyad us-saliheen?

Allah tells us in 5:3 & 11:1 that Islam and its scripture are perfected. Perfection can only be defiled, not improved. Allah tells us in 6:115,  10:64 and  30:30 that the Koran and the  “religion” of which it is the foundation can not be changed. In Sahih Bukhari 9.78.174 Moe is on record cursing anyone who changes Islam after his death, saying that they will be far removed from mercy.  Abu Dawud 23.3455 has Moe saying that if Muslims abandon Jihad in favor of agriculture, “Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.” [Emphasis added.]

Muslims who would reform Islam risk fatwa as apostates. Muslims Against Sharia is a prime example.  Their Koran revision leaves As-Saff 10-13 intact.  while Surah At-Taubah has been entirely excised. Surahs 8 & 47  lose context & continuity when the violent ayat are removed.

Perhaps you’d prefer to re-interpret the Koran. But the gates of ijtihad have been closed for 900 years. They are not about to spring open.  Who knows the interpretation better than the one who revealed it?  His Sunna & Sira show us what the Koran means.  What does this mean?

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.

Moe will tell you what it means!

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”  [Emphasis added.]

Allah’s jihad  imperatives mean exactly what they say. They can not be edited, and if they were, they would eventually be restored.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4278:

Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Allah will raise for this community at the end of every hundred years the one who will renovate its religion for it.

The Swiss initiative is symbolic, with no effect beyond giving visibility to the rising tide of rejection of Islam. Islam is an intolerable predator which can not be reformed. That leaves Western Civilization  one alternative: Islam must be prohibited by law. Ban the substance, not its symbols.

Dr. Sami Alrabaa asserts that we would reject Islam and favor banning it if we understood it from reading the Koran & hadith.   You can test that hypothesis without slogging through thousands of pages of musty text. The ayat most relevant to Islamic aggression, the tafsir which explain them and the ahadith which confirm them are contained in EgregiousAyat.chm, along with the most important part of Shari’ah which codifies them into law.

The practical application of those texts is found in fiqh: rulings by Islamic jurists. FOMIJihad.chm‘s Jihad in Fiqh chapter presents a significant sample of relevant rulings.  For those who prefer the hard slog method, the Muslim Student Association at USC maintains a data base containing  three parallel translations of the Koran and four of the six canonical hadith collections.

For those who need the look, feel, permanence & aroma of printed text:

Tokens of Treason

In remarks prepared for delivery to the Wilson Center August 1, 2007, then Senator Obama expressed ideas which can only result from extreme ignorance or treason.  I became aware of this speech through a quote in a Los Angeles Times opinion article by Jack Miles.

In that speech, Senator Obama expressed his intention to address a major Islamic forum  “to redefine our struggle“.  Jack Miles indicates that the speech is to be delivered to the Turkish Parliament Monday, April 6, 2009.

When President Obama addresses the Turkish parliament on Monday, he will have the chance to fulfill a campaign promise. Before the secular legislature of a Muslim-majority country — and with the entire Muslim ummahummah listening — he can state plainly that the United States is not at war with Islam.

I have selected some of the most egregious idiocies from the prepared text, including them here ( in block quotes) differentiated from my comments by  font style.

[]We did not develop new capabilities to defeat a new enemy or launch a comprehensive strategy to dry up the terrorists’ base of support.[]

There is no new enemy; we are assailed by an old enemy, one which attacked our commercial shipping in the 18th century: Islam. When Thomas Jefferson and John Adams asked  Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman by what right the Barbary Pirates attacked our ships, he gave them a clear answer, one which should be taken to heart by our present leaders.

The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven. [Wikipedia]

Their “right and duty” to attack us is written in the Koran.  Who will bother to read 8:39, 8:60, 9:29 and 9:123?  Not our President, neither our legislators, nor  our military officers; they can’t be bothered with reality, preferring to live in fantasy land.

The “terrorists’ base of support” is the Ummah al-Islamiya, ordinary Muslims who contribute Zakat toward their support. Those who stay at home are required to contribute to the support of the Mujahideen at the front.

[]Just because the President misrepresents our enemies does not mean we do not have them. The terrorists are at war with us. The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims, but the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.[]

Presidents Carter, Clinton Bush & Obama all misrepresented our enemy, claiming that we are assailed by a “tiny minority of extremists” motivated by legitimate grievances.  Islam is the enemy, driven by immutable intrinsic doctrines enshrined in the Koran and exemplified in Moe’s sunna. Casting terror into the hearts of Islam’s enemies is an intrinsic sacrament, clearly established by 3:151, 8:128:60, 33:26 & 59:2 and confirmed by Bukhari 4.52.220 & 1.7.331.

Islam is at war with us, and all non-Muslims not under a treaty of protection imposed upon victims of Islamic intimidation and conquest. The war is dictated by Allah’s commands in 8:39 & 9:29, which Moe confirmed in Bukhari 1.8.387, saying “I have been ordered to fight”. It is Shari’ah, codified in Umdat as-Salik O9.8.

The “terrorists” do not “distort Islam”; they obey Allah who ordered them to “strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemiesand emulate Moe, who said “I have been made victorious with terror“. Islam is fighting against us, and we should be fighting to secure life & liberty.

[]But America must be about more than taking out terrorists and locking up weapons, or else new terrorists will rise up to take the place of every one we capture or kill. That is why the third step in my strategy will be drying up the rising well of support for extremism.[]

“Extremism” is a shibboleth which must be exposed.  The founder of Islam bragged about winning with terror. Allah commanded it, Moe exemplified it: it is the standard, unexceptional. Terrorism’s well of support is the Koran, its support flows through the family, Mosque and every structure of Islamic society.

[]We know where extremists thrive. In conflict zones that are incubators of resentment and anarchy. In weak states that cannot control their borders or territory, or meet the basic needs of their people. From Africa to central Asia to the Pacific Rim – nearly 60 countries stand on the brink of conflict or collapse. The extremists encourage the exploitation of these hopeless places on their hate-filled websites.[]

That paragraph alludes to and reinforces another shibboleth: “terrorism is grievance driven”.  Numerous splodydopes were from middle and upper class families, students of law & medicine, with promising careers in prospect. They chose to end their lives in an effort to kill Kufar, please Allah and gain admission to the Celestial Bordello.

Their “hate-filled websites” reflect the contents of their hate-filled Koran, hadith & Shari’ah.  Those Muslims are not hopeless, they hope to conquer and dominate the entire world, as Allah promised they will.

[]America is at war with terrorists who killed on our soil. We are not at war with Islam. America is a compassionate nation that wants a better future for all people. The vast majority of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims have no use for bin Ladin or his bankrupt ideas. But too often since 9/11, the extremists have defined us, not the other way around.[]

Islam is at war against us, a war declared in 623 and re-affirmed in 20012002 and  2003.  If they had no use for “bankrupt ideas” of world conquest, they would be Apostates, not Muslims.

[]As President, I will lead this effort. In the first 100 days of my Administration, I will travel to a major Islamic forum and deliver an address to redefine our struggle. I will make clear that we are not at war with Islam, that we will stand with those who are willing to stand up for their future, and that we need their effort to defeat the prophets of hate and violence. I will speak directly to that child who looks up at that helicopter, and my message will be clear: “You matter to us. Your future is our future. And our moment is now.”[]

Their future, promised by Allah, is total world conquest and domination.  The Prophet of “hate and violence” was Moe, who revealed Allah’s conquest, genocide & terror imperatives.   “Your future is our future. And our moment is now.”   President Barack Hussein Obama is one of them. You fools, what have you done!

Wake up! Wise up!! Rise up!!!

From Arutz Sheva we learn that McCain was interviewed about Israel’s concerns, specifically including Iran.
[Emphasis added.]

Asked about the possibility that Israel would take military action against Iran on its own, McCain replied:

“Well I hope that that would never happen. I hope that Israel would not feel that threatened. That’s why I think that we, Americans, joining with our European allies can impose significant and very impactful sanctions on Iran, which I think could modify their behavior. They’ve got a lousy economy because they’ve got a lousy government. So, I would hope that we could succeed in that direction and I have some optimism we can. But I have to look you in the eye and tell you that the United States of America can never allow a second Holocaust.”

Pressed regarding using the military to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, Senator McCain said, “All I can tell you is that I think we have a lot of options to explore before we seriously explore the military option, and I don’t think we have exercised those enough.”

How long have the IAEA & EU been negotiating with Iran,  how long has the UN been applying sanctions and what results have they produced?  What hope is there that Russia & China will  subordinate their economic interests to global security?  Their votes are required for Security Council action; they have veto power. They will prevent the application of effective sanctions.Iran will have enough highly enriched uranium to make a bomb long before any sanctions could possibly impede their progress.

What magic wand will McCain wave over Ahmadinejad’s head to compel him to completely & permanently terminate Iran’s quest for nuclear weaponry?  Did sanctions work on North Korea?  Did sanctions work on Iraq?  What is different in the case of Iran that makes it a special case which only McCain’s magical spell can solve?

Islam operates under a demonic imperative to conquer the world and a demonic promise of eventual success.  Only an ignorant or corrupt damn fool makes promises of magic solutions to insoluble problems.

Those topics from Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir include the relevant ayat and ahadith which form the nucleus of Islamic law on the subject. Will you read them and curse Islam or will you remain willfully ignorant of the grave danger we face?    Islam’s Sharia ~ Islamic law mandates  annual attacks upon us. What part of this does Senator McCain not comprehend?

The Reliance of the Traveller. Version 1.06 – By Ahmad Ibn Naqib Al-Misri
BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad

O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
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),
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 peace),
“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) ).

BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad

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’ (y-21), 6.48-49) ).

Near the end of Book O9.1, we find this informative gem:

If 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.

Islamic law requires Muslims to attack Kuffar every year until the entire globe is conquered.  What magic wand is Senator McCain going to wave; what magic words will put a permanent end to Jihad?

Hitler advertised his intentions. Our grandparents ignored his warning; 60 million died.  Muhammad advertised his intentions in the Koran. Why in the Goddamn Hell are you ignoring his warning? What intellectual and moral defects motivate our elected leaders? 270,000,000 have already fallen victim to Islam over the last 1385 years. How many more must suffer and die before you will get off your dead ass and disrespectfully demand effective action?

Pull your head out of your rectum, wipe the feces from your eyes, and take a clear, cold look at  objective factual reality. Only the complete elimination of Islam from the face of the earth will end Jihad.  McCain does not comprehend this fatal fact and lacks the requisite spinal fortitude to commence the effort.
