* Qaradawi’s Q & A sessions with other Muslims

Fitzgerald: Varying the Pitch

Because ‘War is Deceit’- said Muhammad. And to deceive unbelievers is absolutely permitted in order to further the noble cause of Islam.

“We are not abolishing the military jihad with the civil jihad, but appropriate statements must be made in the appropriate setting. In another place I call for military jihad and even for martyrdom operations. In the eyes of some people, my blood is permitted because of this. But at the Al-Quds Institute, I call for civil jihad.” — from a statement by the “reformist” Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi

What could be clearer? Depending on who is in the audience, Al-Qaradawi tells us, he will vary his pitch. When he’s at the sober gathering of the Al-Quds Institute, with too many non-Muslims possibly present, it will be the presumed sweet reason of a merely “civil jihad.” When he can let down his hair without any Infidels overhearing, then of course, he will tell his Muslim audience, “I call for military jihad and even for martyrdom operations.”

Arafat whispered one thing to the credulous Clinton, and said quite another to what he assumed were all-Muslim audiences, beginning with that one he addressed in September 1994 in Johannesburg, telling them not to worry about the Oslo Accords he had just signed, because they didn’t commit him to anything; he was just following in the steps of the great Master. And then he proceeded to refer, as one might expect, to Muhammad’s deviousness with the Meccans when he signed the Treaty of Al-Hudaibiyya. That has been the model for all subsequent treaties between Muslims with Infidels — always temporary, always to be broken. Whatever promises of friendly relations and “peace” or even “permanent peace” may be solemnly undertaken, it means nothing — Muslims are required to break such agreements the minute they feel strong enough to do so. They know, Al-Qaradawi knows, Arafat knew, Mubarak and the Saudi rulers, all daggers and dishdashas and sneers of cold command, know this. Every single Muslim ruler or ordinary Muslim understands this, and understands that Muslims have a right to sign things and then never live up to them, or to break them with impunity whenever they feel like it. “War is deception,” said Muhammad.

Read it all

The Treaty of al-Hudaibiyya explained:

Muhammad set the pattern for peace treaties between Muslims and non-Muslims with a document that was often praised by the late Palestinian terrorist leader Yassir Arafat when he spoke to his followers in Arabic.

This agreement was “made between Muhammad and the Meccans in 628 A.D., the Treaty of al-Hudaibiyya. It was supposed to be a ‘truce’ treaty that would last 10 years. It lasted scarcely 18 months, when Muhammad, feeling that his forces had grown sufficiently, breached the agreement on a pretext, and attacked the Meccans. As Majid Khadduri notes in War and Peace in Islam, this Treaty of al-Hudaibiyya became the model, and basis, for all future ‘treaties’ with Infidel peoples and polities.”

How do you negotiate with or trust a theocratic regime that believes it has a religious License to Lie to advance Islam? How do you sign any agreement with zealots who regard treaties as a temporary tactic to destroy others?

America: Did You Vote For This?

Bush calls Dems ‘irresponsible’ on Iraq

AP via Yahoo! News
President Bush denounced “irresponsible” Democrats on Tuesday for going on spring break without approving money for the Iraq war with no strings. He condemned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Syria, too, accusing her of encouraging a terrorism sponsor.

Even Syrian Muslims are revolted by Pelosi’s stupidity:

A statement from the Reform Party of Syria about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s disgraceful visit to the Baathist regime, and what it means to women struggling for rights in the Islamic world: Has Pelosi Gone Bonkers?

As a Muslim, I fully understand respect of our religion by visiting US officials and I applaud that respect. Had Speaker Pelosi worn the Hijab inside a Mosque, this would have indicated respect but for Pelosi to wear it on the streets of Damascus all the while she is sitting with the self-imposed Baschar al-Assad who has come to symbolize oppression and one of the reasons why women are forced to wear the Hijab as they turn to religion to express their freedom is a statement of submittal not only to oppression but also to lack of women’s rights in the Middle East. Pelosi just reversed the work of the Syrian civil society and those who aspire for women’s freedom in the Muslim countries many years back with her visual statement. Her lack of experience of the Middle East is showing.

Assad could not have been happier because Syrian women, seeing a US official confirming what their husbands, the Imams in the Mosques tell them, and the society at large imposes on them through peer pressure will see in her wearing a Hijab as a confirmation of the societal pressures they are constantly under. No one will ever know how many women took the Hijab on after seeing Pelosi wearing it. The damage Speaker Pelosi is causing with her visit to Syria will be felt for many years to come.

Mainstream Media Serving up Taqiyya

Pamela from Atlas Shrugs has a great take on the Muslim Brotherhood and one of his most sinister agents in the West, the darling of the befuddled left: Tariq Ramadan
The spin is spinning out of control. I expect the New Times and their satellites to provide their executioners with the crude, rusty knife to sever their heads. Of course you expect the enmy to concoct their propaganda a la Goebbels but the American press should be flogged for selling it so willfully.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Propaganda Offensive
Rachel Ehrenfeld and Alyssa Lappen, American Thinker

The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) is heightening its U.S. propaganda offensive in advance of the 2008 presidential elections, taking advantage of the political uncertainty and opposition to the current Administration’s defense policies against radical Muslim terrorist organizations and states.

Incredibly, “Hear Out the Muslim Brotherhood,” an op-ed in the Boston Globe on Sunday March 25, portrayed the outlawed Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood as a reforming tool to promote democracy and stability there and throughout the Middle East, and praised the MB for “surviving” decades of oppression by previous Egyptian regimes.


Meanwhile, The New York Times is busy whitewashing one of the MB’s most corrosive European leaders, Tariq Ramadan, who was barred last September from the U.S. because he funded Hamas. Ramadan’s protest was published last October in The Washington Post. In his op-ed, Ramadan declared that unlike the enlightened Europeans who allow criticism, especially regarding the war on terrorism, “the U.S. government’s paranoia has evolved far beyond a fear of particular individuals and taken on a much more insidious form: the fear of ideas.” But Ramadan’s “ideas” and influence among Muslims are nothing to sneeze at. Indeed, his association with and direct involvement with al-Qaeda operatives in Europe, Africa and the Middle East is well documented by Spanish and French courts.

That information, however, seem to have escaped the attention of U.S. media outlets that keep singing Ramadan praises. Lately, The New York Times seems to be serving as Ramadan’s mouthpiece.

A lengthy favorable profile of Ramadan’s appeared in the February 4, 2007, NYTSunday Magazine. At the end of the 5,181 word article, “Tariq Ramadan Has an Identity Issue,” I an Burama concluded: “Ramadan offers a different way… values that are as universal as those of the European Enlightenment… these values are neither secular, nor always liberal, but they are not part of a holy war against Western democracy either. His politics offer an alternative to violence, which, in the end, is reason enough to engage with him, critically, but without fear.” Further arguments on Ramadan’s behalf were made in the April 1, 2007 New York Times Book Review, by Stephanie Giry. Praising Ramadan’s latest book — tellingly titled “In the Footsteps of the Prophet” — Giry recommends,

“Taking him [Ramadan] literally could be one way to get beyond his critics’ accusations, as well as the paranoid legalism of the State Department.”
Moreover, she finds “Ramadan’s universalist, apolitical view of Islam” as the “the pragmatic resolution of social frictions.”

This willful blindness to Ramadan’s agenda to globalize the Shari’a and establish the Caliphate is so prevalent that the media apparently chose to ignore his arrest on March 13, 2007, at Charles de Gaulle International Airport, for “insulting a public agent.”

Australia: Muslim group angered by visa ban on jihadist Sheikh

Prontissimo, you knew that was coming. Predictable like clockwork. The inevitable whining and seething of the ‘moderate’ Muslims:

Kevin Andrews maintains the sheikh is a national security risk. (File photo) (ABC TV)

The Islamic community has questioned the Government’s ban on Canadian Sheikh Bilal Philips, who was to speak at the first Australian Islamic Conference.

Sheikh Philips was invited to attend the Melbourne event over the Easter weekend but his visa application has been refused on security grounds.


* This youtube vid shows  Philips promoting polygamy


The president of the Federation of Australian Muslim Students, Chaaban Omran, says the sheikh does not promote terrorism and the ban on him is unjustified. More on Chabaan Omran here...

* A quick Google search on Chabaan Omran and you’ll find gems like this: ‘“The more our foreign policy is involved in killing innocent civilians, the more the youth will want an explanation, and if they are not getting that, then the kickback will be sometimes you will get that one-off person – like they did in London – who takes matters into their own hands…’

Which puts Chabaan Omran squarely in the opposite camp:

“He has written a number of very good books to do with Islam about character et cetera … and it just seems ludicrous that you ban an individual but you don’t actually ban his books,” Mr Omran said.

But Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews maintains the sheikh is a risk to national security.

“This gentleman has a long history in relation to support for extremist Islamic positions and the security authorities, based on that and other evidence that they have available to them, made the assessment.”

Qaddafi: “All those believers who do not follow Islam are losers”

* Unfortunately not a word about the Bulgarian nurses. Where are the friggin’ human rights freaks when you need ’em?

By Salah Sarrar

AGADEZ, Niger (Reuters) – Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said on Friday that it was a mistake to believe that Christianity was a universal faith alongside Islam.

“There are serious mistakes — among them the one saying that Jesus came as a messenger for other people other than the sons of Israel,” he told a mass prayer meeting in Niger.

“Christianity is not a faith for people in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Other people who are not sons of Israel have nothing to do with that religion,” he said at the prayer meeting, held to mark the birth of the prophet Mohammed.

Gaddafi, who is seeking to expand his influence in Africa, said his arguments came from the Koran. He led similar prayers last year in Mali.

“It is a mistake that another religion exists alongside Islam. There is only one religion which is Islam after Mohammed,” he said in the sermon, which was broadcast live on Libyan state television.

“All those believers who do not follow Islam are losers,” he added. “We are here to correct the mistakes in the light of the teachings of the Koran.”

Gaddafi also said it was a mistake to believe that Jesus had been crucified and killed. “It is not correct to say that. Another man resembling Jesus was crucified in his place.”

Libya grants financial aid to Islamic communities in Africa and elsewhere to build mosques, Islamic schools and facilities.

Libyan state television often shows Gaddafi meeting groups of African men or women telling him they converted to Islam.

The mass prayers, chaired by Gaddafi, came a day after Arab leaders wrapped up a summit in Saudi Arabia. Libya was the only Arab state to shun the gathering.

“Libya has turned its back on the Arabs … Libya is an African nation. As for Arabs, may God keep them happy and far away,” Gaddafi has said to explain his boycott of the summit.

I have a question about offensive Jihad. Does it mean that we are to attack even those non-Muslims which don’t do anything against Islam just because we have to propagate Islam?

I have been reading Tafsir e Usmani for the last month or so. In it I have read that offensive Jihad (first attack) should be done by Muslims for 2 reasons. 1) For the sake of Allah (in the Way of God) 2) For the sake of subjugated people under oppression like in Kashmir, Palestine etc. Now the second reason I completely understand. But the explanation given of the first reason is “For the sake of Allah includes the propagation of Islam, the survival of Islam, the extermination of those hindrances which impede the progress and expansion of Islam.” (explanation of verse 190, Surah baqara) I really don’t understand this explanation. What does propagation of Islam mean here? Does it mean that we are to attack even those non-Muslims which don’t do anything against Islam just because we have to propagate Islam? For example, there are many countries in the world which are not enemies of Islam in any way (at least I think so). Please explain to me against which Non-Muslims, the Muslims have to do Jihad and against which, Jihad is not allowed. JazakAllah Khair.

Answer 12128 2004-07-13

You should understand that we as Muslims firmly believe that the person who doesn’t believe in Allah as he is required to, is a disbeliever who would be doomed to Hell eternally. Thus one of the primary responsibilities of the Muslim ruler is to spread Islam throughout the world, thus saving people from eternal damnation.

Thus what is meant by the passage in Tafsir Uthmani, is that if a country doesn’t allow the propagation of Islam to its inhabitants in a suitable manner or creates hindrances to this, then the Muslim ruler would be justifying in waging Jihad against this country, so that the message of Islam can reach its inhabitants, thus saving them from the Fire of Jahannum. If the Kuffaar allow us to spread Islam peacefully, then we would not wage Jihad against them.

Merkel Refuses to Honor Palestinians’ Grievance Theater

Big LGF and Winds of Jihad kudos to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who treated the thugs of the PLO with exactly the respect they deserve: Palestinians ‘offended’ by Merkel’s pro-Israel stance.

Palestinian Authority officials have accused German Chancellor Angela Merkel of “offending the Palestinians’ feelings” during her visit earlier this week to Ramallah, where she met with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

The accusations, the first of their kind against a European leader, were made by top PA officials only hours after Merkel and her entourage left Ramallah on Monday. “She did everything to provoke the Palestinians during her visit,” said one official. “She showed no understanding for the plight of our people. On the other hand, she appeared to be very biased toward Israel.”

The official claimed that while Merkel refused to meet with families of Palestinian prisoners held in Israel, she focused during her talks with Abbas on the need to release kidnapped IDF Cpl. Gilad Schalit, who has been held in the Gaza Strip since last June. In addition, he noted, Merkel met with the families of missing IDF soldiers during her visit to Jerusalem.

At the joint press conference with Abbas, Merkel refused to answer a question about the Palestinian prisoners in Israel, the official added. “She appeared to be obsessed with the case of Gilad Schalit,” he said. “But she refused to even acknowledge the fact that we have more than 10,000 prisoners in Israel.”

Another PA official described Merkel’s visit to Ramallah as “extremely negative and a total disappointment.” He revealed that Abbas had originally requested that the meeting take place in Bethlehem, where Christians are celebrating Holy Week.

“We were hoping to show her the wall that Israel built around Bethlehem, but she refused to go there,” he said. “President Abbas was hoping to draw parallels between Israel’s wall and the Berlin Wall. He wanted to remind Merkel of the days when she lived in East Berlin.”

Australia: Howard bans Islamic ‘Leader’

John Howard bans Islamic leader
Gerard McManus / The Herald Sun


Banned: Sheik Bilal Philips.

EXCLUSIVE: THE Howard Government has banned a radical Muslim sheik from entering Australia to speak at a major Islamic conference in Melbourne on the weekend.

Sheik Bilal Philips, who has been linked to the 1993 World Trade Centre bombings in New York, was refused a visa at the last moment by Department of Immigration officials, sources told the Herald Sun.
It is believed the department acted on advice from national security agencies.

Sheik Philips, 50, a Canadian citizen who lives in Qatar, once wrote: “Western culture, led by the United States, is the enemy of Islam.”

The US Government named him as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the 1993 bombings that killed six people and injured 1000. He was deported from the US in 2004.

A second speaker billed to attend the first annual Australian Islamic Conference at Melbourne University on Easter weekend has been asked to show cause why he should be allowed to enter the country.

Sources said it was unlikely that Sheik Jaafer Idris, a Saudi-based academic, would be able to provide information in time.

Four other foreign Islamic speakers have been granted visas, including controversial Briton Yvonne Ridley, who has described suicide bombings as “martyrdom operations”.

Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews confirmed last night that Sheik Philips’ visitor application had been refused.

“The department checks each individual against the movement alert list, which contains approximately three million records of persons of concern, including those who may pose a national security risk,” Mr Andrews said.

“My department works closely with security and law enforcement agencies to ensure the data held on the movement alert list is accurate and current.”

Mr Andrews said that all visitors to Australia had to meet character checks as part of the visa application process.

“I can assure you that in all cases my department conducted the usual checks and screening processes,” he said.

The Melbourne University conference is sponsored by the Islamic organisation Mercy Mission, which is promoting the event with the slogan “Islamic values are universal values”.

Sheik Philips was born Dennis Philips in Jamaica. His family moved to Canada when he was 11.

He was a Communist Party activist before converting to Islam.

* In other words: He is a sucker for totalitarian madness. If he wasn’t a commie he would be a Nazi. In this case he became a Muhammedan.

He holds to a radical form of the religion that advocates marriage to pre-pubescent girls, public executions and stonings.

During the first Gulf War, Sheik Philips helped to convert hundreds of American soldiers to Islam while they were encamped in Saudi Arabia, according to US Government reports.

* Imagine a situation during the cold war when we were fighting the commies and some of our soldiers  would openly ‘convert’ or ‘revert’ to communism. Unthinkable!.

Hard to imagine that we are now governed by clueless jerks who allow our soldiers to become turncoats in the middle of a war. Even more bizarre that it all happens right in our face and under our noses and because of political correctness and because of ‘religious freedom’ everything we hold dear is being perverted.

He told the London weekly Al-Majallah that he was employed by the Saudi military to run a camp for cultural information at a US army barracks solely to win over US troops to Islam.

Sheik Philips has advocated on his website that “the cutting of hands and heads, stoning of people to death, and (public) lashings are only to be held on Fridays”.

Sheik Idris, 76, a Sudanese citizen now teaching in Saudi Arabia, espouses the radical form of Islam known as Wahhabism.

Italy: Another “Kill the Christians, Kill the Jews”-Imam caught on camera

But of course it was all ‘out of context’ – Not to worry!

Keyzar Trad, where are you? How’s your Italian?

Jack Herman: Please tell us it isn’t so and that WE ARE ‘haters’ and that ‘there is nothing wrong with Islam…’

Whenever one of these hate spewing assholes Allah fearing clerics get’s caught, all he needs to do is just lie and deny, and a week later everything is back to normal.

These filty kuffars are such idiots!

They can’t even tell a ‘moderate’ from a ‘radical!’

Rome, 3 April (AKI) – Prosecutors in the northern Italian city of Turin were scheduled to start investigating on Tuesday footage of an imam at the local Cottolengo mosque, Mohammed Kohalia, calling on Muslims to hate Christians and Jews and praying for their death. “The Prophet has said that the extremists [Jews and Christians] will be destroyed,” the cleric is heard as saying in footage secretly filmed by a journalist. “Allah should kill the polytheists.”

*Kohalia has denied making those statements.
The DVD portraying Kohaila’s sermon was filmed with a hidden camera by a faithful attending the prayers on behalf of a news programme on state broadcaster RAI’s second channel, Annozero. Only part of the footage was broadcast last Thursday while the remaining 40 minutes containing the harshest threats against Christians and Jews could reportedly be shown later this week.

The footage also allegedly shows magazines calling for jihad, or holy war.

In the video, Kohaila says that “no compromise can be reached with atheists, they must be killed, full stop.”

He also talks about women saying that “men are superior: a 500 [small FIAT car] cannot compete with a Ferrari” and tells the gathering that men should beat women who disobey.

In accord with Qur’an 4:34.

Kohaila’s predecessor, Bouriqi Boutcha of Morocco, was expelled from Italy in 2004 on suspicion he was linked to Islamic militants.
