Liberals on social media went ballistic after the Quran, the sacred text of Islam, was quoted during an award acceptance speech at Sunday night’s Oscars. The “woke” moment was celebrated by so-called white “progressives” who failed to see the irony in praising a 7th century Islamic religious text.

To be fair, many award-recipients praise God. Some even explicitly give thanks to Jesus Christ.

#Muhammad doesn’t do “fair”.

When the Syrian White Helmets, a brave rescue organization that gained notoriety for their efforts in saving children buried underneath rubble in war-torn Syria, shared a verse from the Quran through a third-party, it should have been business as usual. Winning the cinematography award for a film produced about the struggles in Syria, the White Helmets were barred from entering the United States after the Department of Homeland Security believed the organization’s members may pose security risks. Both the Assad regime and its Iranian patron believe the White Helmets are affiliated with Sunni terror groups. While this assessment should be taken with a grain of salt, it’s understandable why American national security experts would be ambivalent about allowing Syrian foreign nationals into the country.

The Syrian White Helmets’ story is impressive in and of itself. However, that’s not what social justice warriors and pro-Muslim activists chose to pay attention to. Instead, they burst into literal tears of joy after a pretentious-sounding British man appointed to speak on behalf of the White Helmets uttered these words from the Quran:

To save one life is to save all of mankind. (verse 5:32)

# Totally out of context, of course.

Undoubtedly, the sentiments evoked by this line are lovely. And yet, one line doesn’t justify or preclude a bevy of other, far more violent verses inciting hatred against Jews and sanctioning institutionalized misogyny.

Nevertheless, this cherry-picked line prompted a mass feeling of euphoria on liberal Twitter. It was as if the messiah galloped down on a white horse and bestowed the light of God straight into the awestruck eyes of a supposedly secular, white progressive audience.

  1. Islam is what Islam does. The cemeteries are full of Islam’s innocent victims. When they are not killing “infidels” they are killing each other. All the name of Allah, of course.

  2. 5:33. The recompense of those who wage war against Allâh and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.

    Ibn Kathir explains it:
    (The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land.) `Wage war’ mentioned here means, oppose and contradict, and it includes disbelief, blocking roads and spreading fear in the fairways. Mischief in the land refers to various types of evil. Ibn Jarir recorded that `Ikrimah and Al-Hasan Al-Basri said that the Ayat,

  3. verse 5.32 “was given by Allah unto the Jews”,- verse 5. 33″ but as for us Muslims…… crucify–! If they find out the truth, will they feel ashamed?

    1. You beat me to it

      “To save one life is to save all of mankind” is plagiarised from the Talmud.

      Talmud, Sanhedrin 37a states:

      “FOR THIS REASON WAS MAN CREATED ALONE, TO TEACH THEE THAT WHOSOEVER DESTROYS A SINGLE SOUL… SCRIPTURE IMPUTES [GUILT] TO HIM AS THOUGH HE HAD DESTROYED A COMPLETE WORLD; AND WHOSOEVER PRESERVES A SINGLE SOUL…, SCRIPTURE ASCRIBES [MERIT] TO HIM AS THOUGH HE HAD PRESERVED A COMPLETE WORLD.”
