* Stonings are “Ancient rulings” according to the Bunglawala Ding Dong
Jakarta, 29 Nov. (AKI) – Breaking a long-held taboo, the Indonesian government has decided to promote safe sex by launching its first ever National Condom Week in an effort to curb the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, especially HIV/AIDS.
However, the condomn campaign, which will start on 1 December – World AIDS Day – has split Islamic religious leaders, who have differing views on how to fight the killer virus.
Fauzan al-Anshori, spokesperson for the hardline Indonesia Mujahiddin Council (MMI) slammed the initiative and called the strict implementation of strict Islamic (sharia) law as the way to fight the disease
“We strongly feel that condoms can’t prevent people from getting AIDS. The pores of the latex are bigger than the virus itself,”he told Adnkronos International (AKI), adding that in his view the campaign was harmful and morally wrong.
“AIDS prevention should start by implementing Islamic laws and punishing rule breakers, infidels and those who engage in pre-marital sex.
“In Islam we normally throw stones at them,” said al-Anshori. The MMI is a Muslim umbrella organisation whose member groups promotes sharia law in Indonesia.
After 40 years a Catholic Church in West Java is forced to close
by Benteng Reges
Christ’s Peace Church has been active since 1968 now local Muslims are contesting the use of the buildings for religious purposes. With the backing of police and local politicians the extremists have won their battle: the parish does not have the legal permit and therefore must close down. For years the church had sought to obtain the permit without success, gaining only a staunch refusal from the government.
* And we still allow these maniacs to build mosques in Western countries…
ANKARA, NOVEMBER 29 – The decision of an imam in Istanbul to pin on the door of his mosque a verse from the Koran prohibiting friendship with Jews and Christians has sparked a broad theological and political debate and sizeable controversy in Turkish newspapers. The verse from the Koran placed in past days at the entrance of the Zeynep Sultan mosque in Istanbul is line 51 of Sura 5, The Feast, which says: “O you, who believe, do not take
certain Jews and Christians as allies; these are allies of one another. Those among you who ally themselves with these belong with them.” The placing of the verse also caused polemics because of its implications to the Turkish foreign policy orientated to EU membership and strategic alliance with the USA and Israel. (ANSAmed).
* Please note: the reporting twit is almost certainly a Turkish Muslim who finds this difficult to report. Since he is obliged to protect the faith, he inserted ‘certain’ in this Koran sura, but there is no such distinction anywhere.
Here’s the correct translation:
“O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.” (Qur’an 5:51)
There is a lot more here:
“Allah has sent you from your homes to fight for the Cause. Allah wished to confirm the truth by his words: wipe the Infidels out to the last. I shall fill the hearts of the Infidels with terror! So smite them on their necks and every joint, and incapacitate them, for they are opposed to Allah and His Apostle. Whoever opposes us should know that Allah is severe in retribution. The Infidels will taste the torment of Hell. So when you meet them in battle do not retreat, for all who turn away from fighting will bring the wrath of Allah on themselves and their abode will be Hell. It was not you who killed them, but Allah who did so. You did not throw what you threw. Allah did to bring out the best in the faithful. So, fight them till all opposition ends and Islam is the only religion.”
“If you meet them in battle, inflict such a defeat as would be a lesson for those who come after them, that they may be warned. Surely the Infidels cannot get away. Prepare against them whatever arms and cavalry you can muster, that you may terrorize the enemies of Allah.”
“Jihad in the path of God — which consists of battling against unbelief, oppression, injustice, and those who perpetrate it — is the summit of Islam. This religion arose through jihad and through jihad was its banner raised high. It is one of the noblest acts, which brings one closer to God, and one of the most magnificent acts of obedience to God.”
“A man came to Allah’s Apostle and said, “Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” He replied, “I do not find such a deed.” (Sahih Bukhari, vol. 4, bk. 52, no. 44)
