Sheikh Ali Gomaa Declares All Christians “Kuffar”

We’ve been keeping an eye on the  wife-beatin‘, statue-hatin’ Sheikh Ali Gomaa, who made headlines raving about the ‘purity’ of his  profit’s excrement’s & urine, which would be like nectar to him if he could only get his hands on some: Ali Gomaa is the grand mufti of Al Azhar, Islam’s grandest institute of higher learning. Some of our learned anal-ysts believe that makes him a moderate, like…. like   Tariq Ramadan?

On PJ Media (via RaymondIbrahim.com), I discuss how the same “doctrinal” word Egypt’s Grand Mufti used to classify Christians — infidel — is the same word Egyptian soldiers used when they opened fire on and ran armored-vehicles over Christian Copts, showing, yet again, the connection between doctrine and deeds in Islam:

To what extent was Egypt’s Maspero massacre, wherein the military literally mowed down Christian Copts protesting the ongoing destruction of their churches, a product of anti-Christian sentiment?

A video of Egypt’s Grand Mufti, Sheikh Ali Gomaa (or Gom’a), which began circulating weeks before the massacre, helps elucidate. While holding that Muslims may coexist with Christians (who, as dhimmis, have rights), Gomaa categorized Christians as kuffar — “infidels” — a word that connotes “enemies,” “evil-doers,” and every bad thing to Muslim ears.

After quoting Quran 5:17, “Infidels are those who declare God is the Christ, [Jesus] son of Mary,” he expounded by saying any association between a human and God (in Arabic, shirk) is the greatest sin: “Whoever thinks the Christ is God, or the Son of God, not symbolically — for we are all sons of God — but attributively, has rejected the faith which God requires for salvation,” thereby becoming an infidel.

Christian hatin’ mufti with Archdhimmi of Canterbury….

Gomaa then offered a hypothetical dialogue between Christians and Muslims to illustrate Islam’s proper position:

Christians: You have the wrong idea about us; we don’t worship the Christ.Muslims: Okay, fine; we were under the wrong impression — but, by the way: “Infidels are those who declare God is the Christ, son of Mary.”

Christians: But these are philosophical matters that we are unable to explain.

Muslims: Okay, fine; God is one—but, by the way: “Infidels are those who declare God is the Christ, son of Mary.”

As a graduate of and long-time professor at Al Azhar university and Grand Mufti of Egypt (a position second in authority only to Sheikh Al Azhar), Ali Gomaa represents mainstream Islam’s — not “radical Islam’s” or “Islamism’s” — position concerning the “other,” in this case, Christians. Regardless, many in the West hail him as a “moderate” — such as this U.S. News article titled “Finding the Voices of Moderate Islam”; Lawrence Wright describes him as “a highly promoted champion of moderate Islam”…

“Allah’s Curse”

Yassir al-Birhani: Just quoting the Quran

Earlier we saw that Egypt’s Grand Mufti, Ali Gomaa, the nation’s second highest religious authority, categorized all Christians as “infidels” – a word that is much more complicated, and more damning, than the usual and casual translation of “non-believer.” We also saw that some Western apologists are in the habit of praising Gomaa as a “moderate.” As incongruous as that many see, when one hears what other Muslim leaders have to say about “Christian infidels,” one may indeed see Gomaa as a “moderate,” relatively speaking.

Enter Sheikh Yassir al-Birhani, Vice President of the Salafi Summons in Alexandria, Egypt, and a regular fixture on religious programs, including on Al Jazeera. Consider his remarks in an interview on Al Rahma (“Mercy”) Channel regarding the Maspero massacre, when the military mowed down Christians protesting the latest destruction of a church in Edfu.

“Al-Birhani: ‘Copts are infidels by witness of the Quran; shall we apologize for the Quran to please them? Allah’s curse on them,’” by Amani Musa for Free Christian Voice, October 13:

Sheikh Yassir al-Birhani said, commenting on the Edfu church attack and the events leading to Maspero: “Copts created the sectarian strife, claiming that Muslims destroyed a church,” adding “the building that was burned and destroyed had no papers or permits.”

Many Muslims, including the governor who signed the papers, denied that the church had official status, even though the original, signed papers and permits have been shown and are still in possession of the Copts.

“Christians are infidels by Allah as shown by the Quran: shall we apologize for the Quran, and distort its contents, to please them?”…Al-Birhani concluded his conversation on Rahma Channel by quoting several Quranic verses demonstrating that Copts [Christians] are infidels.

Preemptive Dhimmitude in New Zealand: “Hateful Comments Not Helpful”

Sensitivity Training Needed!

Any criticism of Islam, even a joke that could ‘offend’ the soldiers of allah, is “not helpful.” Every obstacle, every hindrance to the Islamization of western countries  must be  removed.  Wherever the soldiers of allah settled behind enemy lines, even in NZ,  there are self-appointed muttawas,  useful idiots who act as religious police,   who censor  speech that could possibly offend Mohammedan culture enrichers. If this continues, the people of NZ will go the way of the Dodo.

NZ Herald News

A Radio New Zealand host’s reference to a “suicide bomber Barbie” doll for the Muslim market has been labelled hateful and divisive.

Never mind the countless daily  suicide bombings committed by Koranimals around the globe: joking about it is “hateful and divisive.” Never mind that Islam divides the world in believer in unbeliever, pollutes children’s minds with genocide  and hatred for the non Muslim: no, in todays bizarro world it is the ugly reality that is bothersome, because it could offend the soldiers of allah.  The lefty loons are so infatuated with  our  exotic cultural enrichers that they rather turn on those who tell the truth….

There’s a hard rain gonna fall….

The comment was made by host Paul Brennan while standing in on Jim Mora’s regular afternoon show last Thursday.

Brennan had been discussing niche Barbie doll products for adult collectors when panelist John Bishop said there was “a huge market in the Muslim world” and asked why there couldn’t be “a terrorist Barbie”.

Brennan then suggested a “suicide bomber Barbie” that came with a little belt.

Mullahs: Hussein Obama Should Apologize to Tehran for Spreading Iranophobia

 “US allegations against Iran spread Iranophobia over the world and feed the Zionist-dominated media with new materials against Iran.”

Last night, NBC News quoted Iranian diplomatic sources as saying that Tehran has demanded Washington to offer a public apology and pay unspecified monetary damages for its recently declared baseless allegations against Iran.

An unnamed Iranian diplomat told NBC News that the demands were contained in a recent letter to the US. It called on the US to apologize publicly to both the Islamic republic and officials of the Al Quds Force for “material and moral damages” caused by “this baseless accusation,” which violated “international rules and regulations.”  (Spreading Iranophobia via GWP)

Sowdi Barbaria Beheads a ‘Wizard’

Musta been a fake wizard, because a real wizard would have got away…. nevertheless, the Sowdis like their beheadings anytime, anywhere, like here in a parking lot next to a supermarket.

Warning: Graphic!  (thanks to Vlad Tepes)

Live Leak explanation:

A wizard is publically beheaded with a swift stroke of the sword taking his head off very quickly. Saudis argue that beheading is more humane and faster than electrocution and lethal injection. This video occured recently on September 20th 2011

Christians Are Experiencing Their Worst Time in Recent Centuries

Muslim students murder Christian classmate for wearing a crucifix

Everyone knew it, but no one spoke up, because they were afraid. Islamic Tolerance Alert: “Coptic Christian Student Murdered By Classmates for Wearing a Cross,” from AINA, October 30 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

Earlier this month Egyptian forces drove over Coptic Christians in military vehicles at a rally in Cairo.
The Copts were protesting violence against Christians in Egypt.

 Top generals have denied that soldiers killed any demonstrators and blamed a plot by “enemies of the people.”

Scapegoat found: Egyptian military jails dissident blogger in “investigation” of its own massacre of Christian protesters

It was reported earlier this month that the Egyptian military was taking over the investigation of its massacre of Christian protesters from a civilian prosecutor, and Human Rights Watch has warned of an impending cover-up. The inversion of well-documented reality described in this report alone puts Orwell’s Minitrue to shame.

Shocking video of Egyptian armored-vehicle “mowing down” Christian civilians

Watch this one-minute video and see an armored-vehicle literally run over a handful of Christians for protesting the constant destruction of their churches in Egypt, at the recent Maspero Massacre. Such vehicles were made possible by U.S. military aid, supposedly for the protection of Egyptian “citizens.” But apparently the military — hailed by the Western media as the “savior” of Egypt for ousting Mubarak — does not see the nation’s Christian minorities as “citizens,” but dhimmis who have no right to protest — unsurprisingly so, considering the military, even in Egypt’s early black-and-white movies, was known as al-Jihadiyya — “the wagerer of jihad.”

Is the West Hijacking Arab Revolutions to the Benefit of Islamists?

Thanks to Hussein Obama… Islamic Jihad Celebrates Arab Spring & Collapse of Israel

A comment from the Elder of Ziyon:

When writers like Barry Rubin warn about the dangers of Islam in the context of the “Arab Spring,” the mainstream media tends to marginalize it and the Left dismisses it as right-wing paranoia and anti-Arab racism.  Which makes this article by Raghida Dergham so vitally important. Not only because she is an Arab woman, but also because it was published in both the pan-Arab Dar al Hayat newspaper and in Al Arabiya:

Raghida Dergham, Columnist and Senior Diplomatic Correspondent, Al Hayat, posted at Puff Ho of all places:

Dubai -- While the West speaks of the necessity of accepting the results of the democratic process, in terms of Islamists coming to power in the Arab region, there are increased suspicions regarding the goals pursued by the West in its new policy of rapprochement with the Islamist movement, in what is a striking effort at undermining modern, secular and liberal movements. The three North African countries in which revolutions of change have taken place are witnessing a transitional process that is noteworthy, not just in domestic and local terms, but also in terms of the roles played by foreign forces, both regional and international. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is trying to hijack the youth’s revolution with the help of the West. This is while bearing in mind that Egypt is considered to be the “command center” for the Muslim Brotherhood’s network in different Arab countries.
