“Freedom & Democracy” delusions fading quickly as sharia ‘gradualism’ grabs hold of Egypt…..

“The Muslim Brotherhood will have a significant role to play in post-Mubarak Egypt. And that is good thing [sic].” — The increasingly clownishÂ Reza Aslan
Hashem Islam Ali Islam is another malignant clown, the one whoÂ said recently: “I say to people who object to martyrdom operations that martyrdom operations are among the deeds most pleasing to Allah.” That is, bombings in which a Muslim kills himself while in the process of murdering Infidels, in accord with the Qur’an’s promise of Paradise to those who “kill and are killed” for Allah (9:111). Â “Egyptian Cleric Hashem Islam Issues Fatwa Permitting the Killing of Anti-Morsi Demonstrators,” fromÂ MEMRI, n.d.:
Arab TV show: Â Jews bake matzoh with human blood!
Jews under the bed!
InÂ El Nashra, Sheikh Mohammed Ali Jawzo warns that “there is a major plot revolving around us, …there are Jews in the heart of the Islamic nation, unfortunately, and even more dangerous, Jews who know they are Jewish and that they are the enemy, but they wear human dress of Islam and fight Islam and Muslims, hitting them at home and trying to destroy the Islamic structure in all parts of our region. This is Judaism and Zionism in particular, and this is the goal of the Jews to divide the region and there are those who play this role for them on their behalf. “Jawzo also happens to be very anti-Hezbollah.
But in the Middle East, if you are Jewish, the enemy of your enemy is also your enemy.
Before you watch this utterly vile and brainless anti-Semitic rant, realise this:
A leading Saudi sheikh, Salman Al Ouda is a former hard-line cleric turned advocate of peaceful coexistence. He is increasingly influential due to his innovative reach in the Muslim World propagated via IslamToday.net and his persistent efforts at ministering to the needs of the global Muslim community.Â His reach, as he notes, is huge:
Salman bin Fahd bin Abdullah Al-Ouda … is a Saudi cleric or Sheikh and Muslim scholar. Al-Ouda is a member of the International Union for Muslim Scholars and on its Board of Trustees. He is a director of the Arabic edition of the website Islam Today and appears on a number of TV shows and authors newspaper articles.
Now watch, and worry.
Egyptian Cleric Hashem Islam Issues Fatwa Permitting the Killing of Anti-Morsi Demonstrators
Following are excerpts from a TV show, posted on the Internet on August 14, 2012, in which Egyptian cleric Hashem Islam, a member of the Al-Azhar Fatwa Committee, issues aÂ fatwaÂ against potential demonstrators on August 24, and from a later TV show, which aired on Dream 1 TV on August 15.
The Internet, August 14, 2012:
Hashem Islam: The revolution planned for August 24 is a par excellence revolution ofÂ kharijiteÂ apostasy against democracy and freedom. I am currently working on a relevantÂ fatwa.
The legitimate president is Dr. Mohamed Morsi, and anyone who goes out [to protest] on August 24 will be revolution against the January 25 Revolution, and will be committing the crimes ofÂ hirabaÂ and high treason against the country, against Allah, against his messenger, and against the believers.
Therefore, I convey the followingÂ fatwaÂ to the Egyptian people: Confront these people, and if they fight you, fight them. Oh people of Egypt, confront these people, and if they fight you, fight them. If some of you are killed by them, you will go to Paradise, and if you kill them, no “blood money” will be warranted, because their killing is permissible. Allah’s mercy and blessings upon you.
Uproar in the audience
Audience member: I beg your pardon, I’m not planning to demonstrate on August 24, but you cannot say such things…
Another audience member: He has no right to do this. AÂ fatwaÂ must come from the Mufti. Not just anybody can issue aÂ fatwa, pitting the Egyptians one against the other. The revolution was waged in order to have more freedom, not more strife.
Dream 1 TV, August 15, 2012:
Hashem Islam: [MyÂ fatwa] was intended as a deterrent. It’s like a man saying to his wife: “If you do this, I will divorce you!” I meant to deter [potential] violators of the law. There are people today who say: “I will use weapons, I will burn, I will kill, I will destroy” â€“ myÂ fatwaÂ was intended for those people, not for peaceful demonstrators.
