Misunderstanding Islam, Female Genital Mutilation, Bianca Jagger & Saul Alinsky


“Nothing in Islam forbids clitorectomy,” I guess that settles it then (Atlas Shrugs)

The Zebiba Boyz & The Arab Spring

Three are asleep, another three are bored, one reads something, another one sends text messages: Islam ARRIVED in the Egyptian parliament!

Egypt: New member of parliament swears to abide by Sharia

According to Article 2 of the existing constitution, which is not likely to budge from the next one, Islam is the religion of state, Arabic the official language, and Sharia the basis for legislation, so the improvised addition to the oath is somewhat redundant. Still, some form of Islamic supremacist touchdown dance was probably inevitable. “Egypt Islamist MP scolded for religious reference,” from Agence France-Presse, January 23 via JW.

The New Buzzword is  “anti-Arab sentiments”

“Prejudices about Islam will be shaken by this show”

Poland hasn’t forgotten history:

Bianca Jagger  signed up: Letter in the Guardian, 24 January 2012:

Alinsky? Never heard of him!

Of course. Nothing uttered frankly to a Muslim audience that has been picked up with alarm by non-Muslims has ever been taken “in context.” That only proves that the message changes with the audience.

As Mohammed Hussein noted in his speech, the hadith that says “there is a Jew behind me, come kill him,” comes from hadith collections considered reliable by Muslims, including Sahih (“sound,” “reliable”) Bukhari 4.52.177: “Allah’s Apostle said, The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him’.”

That doesn’t stop our occasional comment-box apologists from throwing these collections under the bus and claiming that Islam depends only on the Qur’an, so these ahadith don’t matter. In reality, the Qur’an-only movement is a small set of dissenters. “Israeli leader condemns Palestinian Muslim cleric,” by Diaa Hadid for the Associated Press, January 22:

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Palestinians’ top Muslim cleric faced sharp Israeli criticism Sunday for a speech in which he quoted a religious text that includes passages about killing Jews in an end-of-days struggle.Mufti Mohammed Hussein’s comments came at a political gathering of supporters of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. He said his remarks were taken out of context and that he didn’t incite people to kill Jews. But by speaking at the venue, Hussein appeared to be linking the battle to the conflict with Israel.

“The hour of resurrection will not come until you fight the Jews,” Hussein told the gathering, citing a hadith, or saying attributed to the Prophet Muhammad. “The Jews will hide behind stones and trees. But the trees and the stones will call: oh Muslim, oh servant of God, there is a Jew hiding behind me so come and kill him.”…

The mufti delivered his three-minute speech on Jan. 7 in an Arab neighborhood of east Jerusalem during celebrations of the 47th anniversary of the Palestinian movement Fatah, said Itamar Marcus of Palestine Media Watch, an Israeli watchdog group that tracks incitement.

Marcus’ group posted excerpts of the speech on YouTube last week. The comments drew angry reactions from Israelis on Sunday.

“We’re talking about a heinous offense that all nations of the world must condemn,”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement sent to reporters by text message. He asked the Israeli attorney general to launch an investigation.

It is unclear what authority Israel would have since Hussein is appointed to his position by the Palestinian president. There was no immediate comment from Abbas’ office.
Hussein, who is based in Jerusalem, said his comments were taken out of context.

“I was speaking about the final signs of the day of resurrection,” Hussein said. “I did not incite, and I did not call for killing. We are not, at present, at the end of days.”

Even if that were true, passages like these inform how Muslims regard Jews in the present day.

The Quran, Islam’s holy book, offers contradictory attitudes toward Jews and Christians. There are texts that enshrine tolerance and respect for other faiths, while others are spiked with hatred and incitement.

See next: Naskh, or abrogation. Search our archives. While the AP is teaching us about religion, here is one giant leap of moral equivalence:

Some extremist rabbis also have found passages in Jewish texts that they believe justifies violence against the Palestinians….

  1. The Guardian article is pure Armstrong lies about the Crusades. It is sickening. She is not a stupid person. She must know the truth of the Crusades. The only conclusion to reach is that she is EVIL.

    “The hajj, subject of a new exhibition at the British Museum, shows that a respect for other faiths is central to Muslim tradition” A barefaced lie. Tell it to all the Christians who are being slaughtered daily by the ‘respectful’ muhammedans. Tell it to the Jews they are doing their best to obliterate.

    The British Museum site reveals that the propaganda -ooops – (I mean the exhibition) is in partnership with the King Abdulaziz Public Library, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. And, HSBC Amanah has supported the exhibition’s international reach outside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    Yeah – spreading their ‘peaceful’ message far and wide. The Brits should be demonstrating outside the British Museum against this type of subtle propaganda crap.

  2. Thanks, Red Rose.

    Armstrong is, like Johnny Esposito from Georgetown, a paid propagandist on the Saudi payroll. They may be better paid, but they are whores, in fact, ordinary prostitutes don’t do that much damage. These people are evil.

    Guardian Publishes List of Supporters of Islamist-Far Left Alliance


    UK: Islamic supremacists, Leftists demand “inquiry into anti-Islam press”
    What anti-Islam press? The mainstream media in both the U.K. and the U.S. has been for years and remains completely unwilling to discuss jihad and Islamic supremacism. When mainstream reporters are forced to report on jihad activity, they regularly ascribe it to other factors or obscure its motives. Thus we hear about “militants,” “insurgents,” and “youths” in connection with violent jihad activity, while being endlessly regaled with articles designed to intimidate people into thinking that concern about the stealth jihad and creeping Sharia is “Islamophobia.”

    This initiative is designed to shut down the last vestiges of truth-telling about jihad and Islamic supremacist in the British mainstream media. Note also that among the signers is not only once-fashionable Leftist Bianca Jagger, but Moazzam Begg, an apologist for Anwar al-Awlaki. That’s right: the fox is demanding that the farmer stop his anti-fox activity of guarding the henhouse.

    “We need an inquiry into anti-Islam press,” from The Guardian,
    January 23 (thanks to JW):

    Over the past decade, a number of academic studies have indicated a worrying and disproportionate trend towards negative, distorted and even fabricated reports in media coverage of the Muslim community. Recent research at Cambridge University concludes that “a wider set of representations of Islam would signify a welcome change to reporting practices. Muslims deserve a better press than they have been given in the past decade.” And according to a recent ComRes poll, one in three people in Britain today believe that the media is responsible for “whipping up a climate of fear of Islam in the UK”.
    The Leveson inquiry has so far failed to adequately address unfair media coverage as it relates to less prominent cases, including those relating to Muslims and Islam, focusing as it does on the impact of phone hacking on celebrities and other high-profile individuals.

    An alternative inquiry is necessary to investigate what many regard as widespread and systematic discriminatory practices in reporting on Muslims and Islam in the British media. Victims – whether prominent or not – of alleged discriminatory media coverage have a right to have their testimonies catalogued and examined thoroughly by credible, independent assessors. Recommendations can then be made to improve ethical standards in the reporting of not solely the Muslim community but of all sections of society.

    The Guardian has published a helpful list of Islamist activists connected to extremist political parties, and those on the far Left (and their hangers on) who have made common cause.

    Its a list of genocidal Jew-haters, Islamofascists & fellow travelers.

    Nominally, this group has formed to carry out an inquiry into the “anti-Islam press”.

    A number of signatories are high profile supporters of genocidal racist terrorist organisations, and have published and disseminated racist material themselves.

    Remember when Imran Khan said the Danish cartoons are worse than the Holocaust.

    Its interesting that his ex-wife still supports the lunatic. That’s Jemima Khan, a former Jew who converted to Islam when she married Imran.

    Update. Here’s the clip (mp3 250kB, 15 secs)

    “I don’t think the message has got through that for us it’s far more painful than perhaps even the Holocaust for the Jews. Any caricature or any ridicule or any humiliation of the holy prophet is far more painful for the Muslims.”

  3. Sheikyermami,

    Imran Khan is described as a ‘uman rights solicitor. As we all know, he has formed a political party in Pakistan. What might not be known by many people, he is also the Chancellor of the University of Bradford in the UK. And has been for a few years. How can a muhammedan, leader of an Islamic political party in another country, Pakistan, be the Chancellor of a British university?
