“Islamic scholars have not educated themselves enough to pass on the message  that Islam is a religion of love and compassion”

Ready for yet another steaming pile of taqiyya?

Extremism is incompatible with the Islamic faith, …blah blah…

The fact is that our religious scholars have not educated themselves enough to pass on the message to their flock and those of other faiths – that Islam is a religion of love and compassion that even values the life of a tiny ant.

Muslim Jew-Hatred: The Dishonest Takiya of Qanta Ahmed and Mohamed Z. Jasser Vs. Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Honest Mea Culpa

Pamela Geller

The unique, global pandemic of Muslim Jew-hatred will only begin to ebb, if at all, with honest reform of Islam’s vast, ugly corpus of canonical Jew-hatred—from the Koran, and the traditions—as currently still promulgated, in all its virulence, by Islamdom’s most prestigious religious teachinginstitutions.

Unfortunately, Fox News’ go to so-called “reformist” Muslims, Qanta Ahmed and Mohamed Z. Jasser, completely deny this facts-on-the ground reality, while monotonously spewing apologetics that whitewash its major cause: Islam’s viscerally Jew-hating theology.  In the wake of the Philadelphia Islamic Center video imbroglio—whose Islamic teaching roots I analyzed extensively—here are two recent examples of the dishonest misrepresentations Ahmed and Jasser repeatedly put forth, unchallenged, to Fox News’ enormous viewing audiences:

Qanta Ahmed

[Qanta Ahmed, May 6, 2019]:It is absolutely anathema to Islam…This is completely not what Islam teaches. Islam sees Christians and Jews as legitimate believers who are party to paradise, who have a true message from God, and they are our brethren. We cannot be Muslim unless we believe in the Bible and the Torah.”

[Mohamed Z. Jasser, May 7, 2019]: “The ideology—What they wanna do is say well the militant part is what’s the problem. No. The non-violent ‘Islamism’, the ‘supremacism of ‘Islamism’…”  

While Ahmed engaged in frank counterfactual denial, Jasser’s nondescript mention of “Islamism,” or whether it was violent or non-violent, simply drowns out all discussion of Islam’s Jew-hating theology in a flash flood of meaningless, “ism”-laden jargon.  Once again, neither apologist made any reference to the disproportionate prevalence (i.e., a 2.4-fold excess) of extreme Antisemitism amongst US Muslims vs. non-Muslims, or the fact that this sorry state of affairs mimics the global trend (a 2 to 4.5-fold excess).

Contrast the takiya, Islamic dissimulation, proffered by faux Muslim “reformists”, more accurately disingenuous revisionists, Qanta Ahmed and Mohamed Z. Jasser, with the contrite, mea culpa-based honesty of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, on the Islam animating Muslim Jew-hatred.

During her 2006 acceptance speech upon receipt of the American Jewish Committee’s “Moral Courage Award,” Ayaan was unabashed in identifying Islam as the overriding source of pervasive Muslim Jew-hatred.

(Audio link to speech):

“Ladies and gentlemen I have a confession to make, if you are Jewish. It’s a testimony to my dark past when I lived in ignorance. I used to hate you. I hated you because I thought you were responsible for the war that took my father from me for so long. When the Soviet Union allied with our home-grown dictator in Somalia, I was told the Jews were behind that. In Saudi Arabia I saw poor people from a place called Palestine. Men women and children huddled together in despair. I was told you drove them out of their homes. I hated you for that. When we had no water I thought you closed the tap. I don’t know how you did it, but you did it. If my mother was unkind to me I knew you were definitely behind it. Even when I failed an exam I knew it was your fault. I don’t know how you did all these things. But then I didn’t need proof. You are by nature evil. And you had evil powers and you used them to evil ends. Learning to hate you was easy. Unlearning it was difficult.  Even after I had learned about The Holocaust in Europe, the terrible outcome of centuries of Antisemitism, I still found it difficult to take a stand against it. When my half-sister told me The Holocaust was the best thing that had happened to Jews, I refrained from arguing with her because I did not wish to risk breaking the family ties. When she showed me holy [Koranic] verses to support her hatred of Jews I feared arguing with Allah for Allah would burn me. Isn’t it ironic that the American Jewish Committee decided to give me the Moral Courage Award? I am ashamed of my prejudices against you in the past. The good news is I am not alone in learning not to blame you for my misfortunes. Many others who are taught in the name of Islam to hate you have stopped hating you. The tragedy is however that those unlearning to hate are far fewer in number than those who still do. As we sit here thousands, perhaps millions are learning to blame you and wishing to destroy you.”

  1. The problem with Qanta Ahmed and Mohamed Z. Jasser, is that they do not have a large body of Muslim supporters and they are not able to influence that large body of Muslims around the world.

    You could say that they have zero support among Muslims anywhere which is a worry when they talk to the main stream media or Fox news

    1. Exactly.

      Zuhdi & Qanta can count their followers on one hand. And yet, they do their Islamic duty to pull the wool over the eyes & ears of the kafirs, which is also a form of jihad.

      The Hadith makes it clear that Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers in order to defeat them or protect themselves. There are several forms:

      Taqiyya – Saying something that isn’t true as it relates to the Muslim identity. This is a Shiite term: the Sunni counterpart is Muda’rat.

      Kitman – Lying by omission. An example would be when Muslim apologists quote only a fragment of verse 5:32 (that if anyone kills “it shall be as if he had killed all mankind”) while neglecting to mention that the rest of the verse (and the next) mandate murder in undefined cases of “corruption” and “mischief.”

      Tawriya – Intentionally creating a false impression.

      Muruna – ‘Blending in’ by setting aside some practices of Islam or Sharia in order to advance others.
