The good teachings of Muhammad are reserved for fellow Muslims

Obama And Islam’s Non-Existent Golden Rule

The problem with the good teachings of Muhammad is that they are reserved for fellow Muslims. When the hadith says “None of you [truly] believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself,.” it is talking about the fellow Muslims. The brotherhood in Islam does not extend to everyone.

obama1 (1)NER, by Hugh Fitzgerald, Feb. 6, 2015:

Barack Obama ended his talk at the National Prayer Breakfast with a quote from the Hadtih (Sahih Muslim):

“And, finally, let’s remember that if there is one law that we can all be most certain of that seems to bind people of all faiths, and people who are still finding their way towards faith but have a sense of ethics and morality in them — that one law, that Golden Rule that we should treat one another as we wish to be treated. The Torah says “Love thy neighbor as yourself.” In Islam, there is a Hadith that states: “None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.” The Holy Bible tells us to “put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” Put on love….”

Quoting this Hadtih — incidentally, this is the first time that Obama has publicly used that word — from the Sahih Muslim is like quoting Quran 5.32 without its modifier 5.33, that vitiates the original verse lifted from the Mishnah, or 2.256 (“There is no compulsion in religion”) without understanding what that verse means, for clearly the three possibilities open to non-Muslims under Muslim rule — death, conversion, or life as a dhimmi, with a host of economic, political, and social disabilities that for many proved unendurable.

Ali Sina, the celebrated apostate who was born and raised in Islam, has written extensively, in a debate with Yamin Zakaria, about the non-eexistence of the Golden Rule in Islam. It can be found at his website, http://www.faithfreedom.org. He also wrote, a few years after the original article, a rebuttal to the objections raised by a Muslim defending the faith:

Is a nice Muslim a good Muslim?

Political Islam

A follow-up on this article:

Is a Nice Muslim a Good Muslim?

Claude Salhami was ‘aghast’ at a recent politicalislam.com newsletter-Is a Nice Muslim a Good Muslim? He replied to the newsletter with his Scourge of ‘Islam Experts’, but he missed my point.

The point of the Nice Muslim newsletter is that the doctrine of Islam is inhuman, not that Muslims always practice the Islamic doctrine at all times. A Muslim can be a fine person in dealing with a kafir when they are not practicing Islam. A summary of the Nice Muslim argument is:

  • The Koran defines the kafir, a non-Muslim. A kafir is hated and plotted against by Allah. Kafirs can be killed, tortured, crucified, raped, insulted, enslaved and deceived. Kafir is the worst word in the human language. A kafir does not have any positive attributes.
  • There is no Golden Rule in Islamic ethics. The Koran repeats 12 times that a Muslim is not the friend of a kafir.
  • Mohammed repeatedly said that it is good to deceive the kafirs, if it advances Islam.
  • Mohammed destroyed each and every kafir neighbor. It is Islam’s purpose to make all kafirs submit to Islam.
  • A Muslim can only be a true friend to a kafir by the use of the Golden Rule, a non-Islamic principle.

The conclusion is that there is no good in Islam for the kafir. Sure there are those 2.6% of the Koranic words that seem to be good, but in every case the so-called good verses are abrogated later.

Trainwreck Koran Armstrong peddles BS about 'Golden Rule', fails to mention that there's no such thing in Islam…

Islam Apologist Karen Armstrong Preaches About ‘The Golden Rule’, Fails to Mention That Islam  Islam Doesn’t Practice it…

* Apologies: I was working on two different computers tonight. On one the post came up and on the other most of it was missing. Mysterious….

I just got done watching the entire mind numbing speechon ‘religious harmony’, by pseudo scholar, Karen Armstrong, which was filled with nothing but platitudes, parables and propaganda, and very, very low on substance and intellectual honesty. I take that back, there was absolutely nothing of value in the speech itself, but only if one uses it as a teaching aid to highlight academic buffoonery on a grandiose scale.
