EU spending over $1,000,000 on “preventing radicalisation leading to violent extremism” through classical music concerts
Ukip MEP Paul Nuttall said: “These people obviously live in cloud cuckoo land. The Islamist hotbed of Molenbeek is just down the road from the parliament – why don’t they take their workshops there and see what difference it makes? We need proper solutions so let’s get tough on the real causes of radicalisation. This patronising nonsense from the EU will only make things worse.” (more on Islamic rulings on music and musical instruments here and below the fold)
Cartoon Rage was just the beginning
Once we surrendered on that point, we set a precedent of surrendering to Sharia enforcement. Now established, we are made to reinforce it again and again.
We are in effect accepting Islamic law as overriding the freedom of speech and freedom of expression.–Geller Report
Islamic State calls for random knife attacks in alleys, forests, beaches, “quiet neighborhoods”
Then when they happen, we will be told that they have nothing to do with Islamic terrorism and that authorities are trying to determine the motive.
Minnesota: Muslim who stabbed mall shoppers while screaming “Allahu akbar” newly interested in Islam
“Dahir Ahmed Adan became interested in Islam in the last several months, withdrew from his friends and encouraged his sisters to be more religious, FBI Special Agent Rick Thornton said at a news conference. Witnesses told investigators that 20-year-old Adan yelled ‘Islam, Islam’ and ‘Allahu akbar,’ as well as asking several people whether they were Muslim before stabbing them during the Sept. 17 attack, which started outside Crossroads Center mall before moving inside.”
This is why government and law enforcement officials have to keep telling us that jihad terror has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam: it is such a patently false claim that it requires constant repetition to put it over.
Pentagon still unsure of whether to link Islam with violent jihad
Islamic jihadists routinely link Islam with violent jihad. In all their communiques and all their appeals for support, and in all their attempts to recruit peaceful Muslims, they invoke the Qur’an and Muhammad. The fact that this is controversial and still being discussed fifteen years after 9/11 is an indication of how deep the denial, and how serious the crisis, is in Washington. “Pentagon still unsure whether to link Islam & violent Jihad,” by Hillel Fendel, Israel National News, October 7, 2016
GASLIGHTING : A vicious fallacy of illogic, DELIBERATELY changing or distorting facts, memories, scenes, events and evidence in order to DISORIENT, CONFUSE and to make a vulnerable opponent doubt his/her sanity. This fallacy is named after British playwright Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 stage play “Gas Light,” also known as “Angel Street.” Gaslighting is a MALEVOLENT form of PSYCHOLOGICAL MANIPULATION in which intentionally false information is given to the victims in order to make them doubt their own observations, memories, thoughts and perceptions.
r40.1 (Ibn Hajar Haytami:) As for the condemnation of musical instruments, flutes, strings, and the like by the Truthful and Trustworthy (Allah bless him and give him peace), who
“does not speak from personal caprice: it is nothing besides a revelation inspired” (Koran 53:3-4),
let those who refuse to obey him beware lest calamity strike them, or a painful torment. The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:
(1) “Allah Mighty and Majestic sent me as a guidance and mercy to believers and commanded me to do away with musical instruments, flutes, strings, crucifixes, and the affair of the pre-Islamic period of ignorance.”
(2) “On the Day of Resurrection, Allah will pour molten lead into the ears of whoever sits listening to a songstress.”
(3) “Song makes hypocrisy grow in the heart as water does herbage.”
(4) “This Community will experience the swallowing up of some people by the earth, metamorphosis of some into animals, and being rained upon with stones.” Someone asked, “When will this be, O Messenger of Allah?” and he said, “When songstresses and musical instruments appear and wine is held to be lawful.”
(5) “There will be peoples of my Community who will hold fornication, silk, wine, and musical instruments to be lawful ….”
All of this is explicit and compelling textual evidence that musical instruments of all types are unlawful (Kaff al-ra’a’ ‘an muharramat al-lahw wa al-sama’ (y49), 2.269-70).
r40.2 (Nawawi:) It is unlawful to use musical instruments—such as those which drinkers are known for, like the mandolin, lute, cymbals, and flute—or to listen to them. It is permissible to play the tambourine at weddings, circumcisions, and other times, even if it has bells on its sides. Beating the kuba, a long drum with a narrow middle, is unlawful (Mughni al-muhtaj ila ma’rifa ma’ani alfaz al-Minhaj (y73), 4.429-30).
SINGING UNACCOMPANIED BY MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS
r40.3 (Ibn Hajar Haytami:) As for listening to singing that is not accompanied by instruments, one should know that singing or listening to singing is offensive except under the circumstances to be mentioned in what follows. Some scholars hold that singing is sunna at weddings and the like, and of our Imams, Ghazali and ‘Izz ibn ‘Abd al-Salam say that it is sunna if it moves one to a noble state of mind that makes one remember the hereafter. It is clear from this that all poetry which encourages good deeds, wisdom, noble qualities, abstinence from this-worldly things, or similar pious traits such as urging one to obey Allah, follow the sunna, or shun disobedience, is sunna to write, sing, or listen to, as more than one of our Imams have stated is obvious, since using a means to do good is itself doing good (Kaff al-ra’a’ ‘an muharramat al-lahw wa al-sama’ (y49), 2.273).

The Obama regime has been treating WELL-READ, WELL-INFORMED WESTERN STUDENTS OF ISLAM AS THE ENEMIES OF THE US GOVERNMENT!
If you have read Islam’s foundational source texts, Sharia law, the canonical commentaries of Islam’s ‘consensus’, and 1400 years of Islamic history AND UNDERSTAND THEM PERFECTLY … then the US government CONSIDERS YOU TO BE MENTALLY ILL AND DANGEROUSLY SO!
“ISLAMOPHOBIC” means that you are well-informed and see that the US government’s ‘NARRATIVE’ about Islam is a DELIBERATE FALSIFICATION and INTENTIONAL MISREPRESENTATION of Islamic doctrine, history and Islamic practices so that the US government can maintain the FICTION that SAUDI ARABIA AND IRAN are not encouraging JIHAD TERRORISM. The American people are being manipulated to join this unconvincing CHARADE!
The US government has been declaring that when a Westerner has a profound and CORRECT understanding of Islam’s essential doctrines, it is MENTAL ILLNESS! However, if an Islamist religious leader understands ISLAMIC TEACHINGS in EXACTLY THE SAME WAY, then the Islamist is NOT INSANE according to the American government.
