Walid Shoebat: Al-Qaida not a fringe opinion among Muslims

Of course not. Millions of Koranimals around the world are heartbroken over Binnies demise and plot revenge. But those who acknowledge the facts and talk about it ‘have no credibility’.  Not on the Bunglawussi website anyway, where its Aslam taslim 24/7:

South Dakota emergency personnel who gathered Wednesday in Rapid City for a Homeland Security Conference got a controversial presentation about Muslim theology, culture and terrorism.

Walid Shoebat, who says he was a former terrorist in the Palestine Liberation Organization before converting to Christianity, said that Americans should focus on what he called the “culture of terrorism” among Muslims rather than “only the ones who carry out the explosive act”.

Shoebat said closet supporters of terrorism exist throughout the Muslim community in mosques, community groups and in the U.S. armed forces. “You’ve been infiltrated at all levels,” Shoebat said. “Are all Muslims who interpret for the U.S. military terrorists? Of course not. But that doesn’t mean you play Russian roulette.”

Shoebat’s appearance was paid for by a federal grant from the Department of Homeland Security as part of the second annual South Dakota Homeland Security Conference. He also spoke at the first conference last year in Sioux Falls.

Jim Carpenter, director of homeland security for South Dakota, said Shoebat was invited back this year because last year’s speech was among the most popular among the law enforcement, fire, medical and other personnel at the conference. “The critiques and evaluations that came back highly recommended that he come back again,” Carpenter said. “We acted on those, and that’s why he came back.”

Ex-Sen. Jim Abourezk, who is a Christian of Lebanese ancestry, said Shoebat throws “one blanket over all Muslims, whether good or bad, saying they’re all bad”. Shoebat’s rhetoric, Abourezk said, harms Muslims who “would love to be left alone and to be able to worship in the way they see fit”.

“He’s a scam artist and he’s a liar,” Abourezk said. “He doesn’t have any credibility when he claims he was a PLO terrorist.”

  1. Walid has absolutely right:

    The Prophet called, “War (i.e. jihad) is deceit”
    Bukhari Vol. 4, Book 52, #267

    “I have been made victorious with terror”
    Bukhari Vol. 4, Book 52, #220

    Quran 8:12 “…I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers”

    8:60 “…to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah
    (i.e. “Unbelievers” 8:59)

  2. We know he has spoken the truth – we need to convince the idiots amongst us that he does.

  3. “we need to convince the idiots amongst us that he does.”

    How many Fort Hood massacres do we need before the weak politicians are swept aside. You only have to look at the state of Islam at the moment to see the house of cards starting to topple. But the terrorist sleepers within will try and destroy as much as they can in the hope of reversing this situation. There was no need to take Bin Laden alive and the same goes for all terrorist leaders. But a few hard labour camps might send a sharp message to any western suburban wannabee Jihadists. Make them do something useful like breaking rocks for road base.

  4. Those of you quoting the Quran, you are taking the lines out of context only putting incomplete quotes. If you have the chance, or privilege i should say, you should read the Quran to fully understand what this religion is about, and you will see how its a book that expresses a way of life that is peaceful and honorable.
    This is a passage from the quran:
    Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not do aggression, for Allah loves not the aggressors. Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors. And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. But if they desist, then lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrongdoers.” (Al-Baqarah 190-194)
    Unfortunately many people will read this passage and then extract lines like “slay them wherever you find them” taking it out of context and thus giving a completely wrong expression. Visit this link to read this article that will hopefully give a better explanation. (http://www.konoozalislam.com/vb/showthread.php?t=9311&page=1)
    Also i would like to add that Shoebat is a very unreliable source and speaks nonsense basically he’s full of s**t and those who listen to his words are obviously ignorant believing the view of this idiot.

  5. When i say ignorant for believing Shoebats views , its because he is only one person and by believing the views of only one person, in my opinion, is an ignorant act. However it is the right of every person to believe what they assume is right and it is only through open communication can people start understanding each other and understand the cultures and be able to live peacefully side by side, yet thats an optimistic thought as long as there are uneducated extremists, as well as biased media sources that fuel fires instead of put them out. on September 11 2001 a devastating event occurred that almost the whole world knows about. The way this event was portrayed by the media fueled a fire not against those crazy extremists but on Islam itself and thus built the belief around the world that Islam=Terror which is completely wrong. Terrorism has NO religion.
    Of course with my comments i do not intend to offend any party or person and i just wanted to express what i thought because this negative ideology about islam needs to come to an end.

  6. * thus built the belief around the world that Islam=Terror which is completely wrong.

    The media did all this, when they have desperately sought to portray muslims as overwhelmingly peaceful, and islam as a religion of peace?

    * Terrorism has NO religion.

    Really? Does allah know that? It seems to have a different view, as channelled through its false prophet:

    [8.12] “When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”

    Let me know when allah gives up striking terror into the hearts of people like me, and ordering its followers to behead and maim us.

    Eventually, God the Father Son and Holy Spirit will close allah and islam down, and bind it in the abyss – but until then it is free to oppose the truth and deceive its followers. Hasten the day when God destroys it completely.

  7. * This is a passage from the quran:

    This is a passage from the koran that mocks Jesus Christ the Son of God, denying His crucifixion …

    [4.157] And their saying: Surely we have killed the Messiah, Isa son of Marium, the apostle of Allah; and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and they killed him not for sure.

    This consigns muslims to the lake of fire, should they die believing it, and rejecting God’s gift of salvation and eternal life through Jesus Christ. Warn muslims that judgment is coming, and utter destruction awaits them, if they do not repent …
