Harry’s Place shines a light on another Â “moderate” cockroach: Mehdi Hasan, who’s Islam is, as we can see here, no different from the Islam of of Abu Hamza, Abu Qatada, Ayman al Zawahiri, Anjem Chaudary or any of the “tiny minority” of Â Islamic terrorists who believe that Islam must dominate, no matter what the cost.
“The kaffar, the disbelievers, the atheists who remain deaf and stubborn to the teachings of Islam, the rational message of the Quran; they are described in the Quran as, quote, “a people of no intelligence”, Allah describes them as; not of no morality, not as people of no belief – people of “no intelligence” – because they’re incapable of the intellectual effort it requires to shake off those blind prejudices, to shake off those easy assumptions about this world, about the existence of God. In this respect, the Quran describes the atheists as “cattle”, as cattle of those who grow the crops and do not stop and wonder about this world.” More @Â Harry’s Place
