The signs that are prepared for these demonstrations in support of Israel, and against Hamas, should be more than the usual, and not very effective “No To Hamas” or “We Stand With Israel” stuff. That doesn’t do much good.Â What would do a lot of good is for there to be prepared, at each demonstration, signs that contain quotes from the Qur’an, those that call for killing the Unbeliever, and warning Muslims not to take Jews and Christians as friends, and so on, and then a few choice Hadith will also work magic. It would also be good to have demonstrators with bits and pieces of the Hamas Charter written on them.
And, in addition to these revealing bits of Islamic texts, and Hamas’ use of those texts, there should be signs that give specific information about what has happened. That is, not signs that say “Stop the Hamas Rockets on Civilians” but something like “6,000 rockets have rained down on Israeli cities and towns from Hamas in the last two years. What country on earth would stand for this?”
Here are a few Qur’anic passages to look up and use: 9.5 (jihad against non-Muslims), 9.25 (ditto), 3.11 (the superiority of non-Muslims), 5.51 (Muslims not to take Jews and Christians as friends), 33.61 (describing Infidels as the Cursed Ones whom Believers are to seize and kill without pity), .47.4 (smiting the Unbelievers around the neck)
As for Hadith â€“possibly Bukhari LVIII 236, or LII 260, or Muslim XVII 4216, could be the basis of a starter-kit for your Poster Project. You will be doing many things. You will substitute for the bland and unhelpful and unc0nvincing “Stop Hamas” something deeper, something that will stick in the minds of those taking part in the demonstration, and all those who see the demonstration, and those who film the demonsetration, and those reporters who will cover the demonstration. It forces them to start finding out about Islam â€“ or otherwise simply looking like fools.
You will also be relating the Arab war against Israel to Islam. And that is why other posters should bear such slogans as “The Jihad against Israel has no end” or â€“ and this appears to contradict the first, but let’s call it a pious if naÃ¯ve and hopeless hope, “Stop the Jihad” or “Stop the World-Wide Jihad.”Â Other posters might bear a list of cities: New York and Washington 9/11/2001, London 7/7/2005, and Amsterdam (date of killing of Van Gogh), Madrid (bomb on the subway and at Atocha station), Beslan (the school), Moscow (the theatre), Mumbai (everywhere), and so on. Make that list comprehensive. And make sure that there are as many representatives of those who are among the first victims of Jihad today â€“ Hindus, black Africans from the Sudan or from southern Nigeria, possibly a Thai Buddhist with a sign about the Muslim decapitations of Buddhists in southern Thailand, Copts and Maronites if they dare to come, and so on =— — in other words, hit the Muslim side with everything. And keep at it, and don’t stop.
You will start the education of the Infidel public. And you will drive some among your sinister enemies absolutely hysterical, but what can they do? Can they deny that those Qur’anic passages exist, exactly as you have put them up? Can they deny the “autheniticity” of Hadith that the greatest muhaddithin, Bukhari and Muslim, deemed authentic? Can they deny the bloodcurdling words of the Hamas Charter? Oh, and fpr good measure, why doesn’t someone put on a poster the Zuhair Mohsen quote about the propagandistic origins of the “Palestinian people.” And finally, make sure that you have a poster that lists the tonnage of the trucks that have continually supplied, from Israel â€“ not a truck has come in from the Arab Republic of Egypt â€“ even during the so-called “ceasefire” that Hamas was breaking all along. Other posters can ask: Is Israel required to supply goods and services for those who wish to destroy it, and are doing their best to do so? Why?
In other words, something more than the usual “We Support Israel” should be done. A little thought, a little imagination â€“ it can go a long way, in this as in all other things.
