Support our enemies! Donate to Muslim countries, help Muslims to pay zakat….
We know that terror is funded through the use of “islamic charities.” The most glaring example was the Holy Land terror funding trial, the largest in US history. CAIR, ISNA, MAS, and the MSA were all named fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood and co-conspirators.
Meanwhile, AmericaÂ sent in the Marines today. And of course, this isn’t the first time Gulf countries — particularly Saudi Arabia, so glutted with petrodollars — have been slow or stingy in their response to a disaster that affects their non-Arab Muslim brethren. There was the tsunami, and the needs of theÂ World Food Program. Even in one of theÂ latest crises in Pakistan in 2009, their slowness to respond was noted.
If anything that can be blamed on Israel happens in Gaza, they’re on it yesterday. Widespread suffering and disease from natural disasters? Meh. Allah’s will, apparently. Or maybe they’d just rather be agitating for jihad.
Is Obama Winning the Hearts and Minds of the Arab and Muslim World?
This is a guy who spent some time in the Muslim world, has a middle name of Hussein, and appears more worldly and has called for talks with people, and so he’s not going to be engaging in the same sort of cowboy diplomacy as George Bush.’
Right. Â RIGHT??? (Larry Elder)
Forever suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome:
“Imam Rauf’s an OK guy because Bush promoted him, he’s a moderate….”
Rauf on a US sponsored frequent flyer program? There is no end to this stupidity…. Sack them all!

President Obama, How Does Islam Advance “the Dignity of All Human Beings” when its Prophet Practiced and Condoned Sex Slavery?
ByÂ David Swindle/Newsreal
These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings. Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality. And here in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country. And today, I want to extend my best wishes to the 1.5 billion Muslims around the world â€“ and your families and friends â€“ as you welcome the beginning of Ramadan.
Emphasis mine. Now: how did Muhammad respect the dignity of all human beings? How did Muhammad’s imperial conquests to spread his religious ideology by the sword respect the dignity of all human beings? How does Sharia law â€” Islam’s legal foundation â€” respect the dignity of all human beings when it mandates death for apostates? How does Islam respect human dignity when Mohammed mandated enslaving and raping the captured women of defeated peoples as a legitimate means of spreading the faith?
Really think I’m lying about this last one? From the Koran, Chapter 33, verse 50:
O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee; and daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of thy maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated (from Makka) with thee; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the Believers (at large); We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom their right hands possess;- in order that there should be no difficulty for thee. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
The term “those whom thy right hand possesses” is a euphemism for a concubine or sex slave â€” a concept part of the “human dignity” of Islam that Obama was talking about. And Muslims â€” when talking to each other â€” admit that this is true:
Praise be to Allaah.
Islam allows a man to have intercourse with his slave woman, whether he has a wife or wives or he is not married.
A slave woman with whom a man has intercourse is known as a sariyyah (concubine) from the word sirr, which means marriage.
This is indicated by the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and this was done by the Prophets. Ibraaheem (peace be upon him) took Haajar as a concubine and she bore him Ismaa’eel (may peace be upon them all).
Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also did that, as did the Sahaabah, the righteous and the scholars. The scholars are unanimously agreed on that and it is not permissible for anyone to regard it as haraam or to forbid it. Whoever regards that as haraam is a sinner who is going against the consensus of the scholars.
(Thank you to my friend Howard Bloom for bringing this to my attention.)
Look, I know that many of these realities about the nature of Islam can be a bit of a shock to people when they first encounter them. There’s an impulse to try and rationalize them away by trying to compare Islam to Christianity or Judaism. (Good luck finding the New Testament verses where Jesus talks about his harem.) There’s a tendency to want to say that we must be “quoting verses out of context.” (By all means, please read the entire book yourself so you can see the whole picture.)
So if the above verse and interpretation are being misinterpreted â€” not by me but by the Islamic scholars who I’m citing â€” then please explain the correct historical interpretation which demonstrates how they fit into a religion dedicated to “advancing the dignity of all human beings.” President Obama?
But it’s not just women “whom thy right hand possesses” who are slaves. My friend and colleague, ex-Muslim Bosch Fawstin summarizes the reality of the religious ideology promoted by our commander in chief:
A Muslim as he ought to be is, in essence, a slave of Allah. He must submit his all to Allah, without queston. Islam expects Muslims to be slavish in their devotion to Islam, anything less is considered heretical. If you’re not all in, Islam doesn’t recognize you as a Muslim. It’s either total submission or infidelity. If you’re not part of organized Islam, you’re something other than a Muslim as Islam defines it. Far as Islam is concerned, there are two kinds of people: Muslims & Infidels, period.
If this is an incorrect summary of Islam’s teaching then by all means please refute it. Perhaps a good place to start in any introductory debate about Islam is by pointing out any inaccuracies in the following video:
