There’s a sucker born every minute. But this sucker has no business being in the White House.
At height of conflict, Paki MP called for jihad against Israel, including the use of nuclear weapons
Our Paki “friends”. How many billion $$$$ did they get for their support in the “war on terror?”
The Palestinian Authority is supposed to be the more “moderate” of the “Palestinian” entities, although that really only means that they’re willing to gain through negotiations what Hamas wants only to seize through violence. So expect more jihad.
Grand Sheikh of al-Azhar blatantly justifies murder for blasphemy
“Reactions in the Muslim world to the recent publication of the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in the French magazine Charlie Hebdo were very harsh.” This was clearly evident, but it should serve as an exhibit of what normative Islam teaches regarding the penalty for blasphemy. Those who proclaim that Islam is inherently a “religion of peace” are ignoring the evidence. MEMRI reports:
“Unexpectedly, Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, the Sheikh of Al-Azhar, the most important religious establishment in Egypt and the entire Sunni world, joined in the criticism, but made conflicting statements. Despite denouncing Paty’s murder, he explicitly encouraged martyrdom for the sake of the Prophet Muhammad.”
Only, it isn’t — and wasn’t — unexpected. Jihad Watch ran a story on October 24 entitled: “Al-Azhar grand imam says man who beheaded teacher doesn’t speak for Islam, but warns against ‘insulting religions.’”
El-Tayeb blatantly justifies murder for blasphemy.
More below the fold.
Muslim author: ‘It is mistakenly believed that Islam prescribes capital punishment for those who commit blasphemy’
That, of course, is a shameless lie for infidel consumption in the West. It is a religiously mandated steaming pile of taqiyya, in the hope that the kuffars never read the texts in the Koran & the hadith, and that these infidel dogs keep believing that Islam is just a peaceful religion.
Let’s hear what Salman Rushdie has to say about that. Or the Charlie Hebdo crew & a few thousand others who are under a fartwa thanks to fanatical Muselmaniacs.
They always say that before they set out to destroy them.
Continued: Blasphemers must be killed
Despite denouncing Paty’s murder, he explicitly encouraged martyrdom for the sake of the Prophet Muhammad, at an October 27, 2020 event marking the Prophet’s birthday – thus implicitly justifying terrorism in response to the cartoon crisis. He called love for the Prophet the “personal duty” of every Muslim and said that Muslims must sacrifice their souls, their family, and all that is precious to them in order to defend him.
Coming from the “most important religious establishment in Egypt and the entire Sunni world,” this should demonstrate the low level of the understanding of normative Islam in the West, where counterterror analysts proclaim that an insignificant number of Muslims pose a security threat to Western interests and establishments. Normative Islam prescribes death for blasphemy, and as such, a significant number of Muslims support that penalty.
As for Shia Islam, the Ayatollah Khamenei, who is a Marja, the most important Shia authority, blamed “arrogant powers and Zionism” for jihad attacks on France.
Far too many Muslims (although certainly not all) support the jihad. Al-Tayeb “also quoted Quran 9:24, which states that the Muslims’ love for Allah, Muhammad, and jihad must be greater than their love for their family and possessions.”
“Sheikh Of Al-Azhar Provides Support For Extremist Islamists In Europe: Muslims Must Give Their Souls In Defense Of The Prophet; Islam Commands Us To Love Muhammad And Jihad More Than Our Own Families,” by Y. Yehoshua, MEMRI, December 11, 2020:
…Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, the Sheikh of Al-Azhar, the most important religious establishment in Egypt and the entire Sunni world, joined in the criticism, but made conflicting statements. Despite denouncing Paty’s murder, he explicitly encouraged martyrdom for the sake of the Prophet Muhammad, at an October 27, 2020 event marking the Prophet’s birthday – thus implicitly justifying terrorism in response to the cartoon crisis. He called love for the Prophet the “personal duty” of every Muslim and said that Muslims must sacrifice their souls, their family, and all that is precious to them in order to defend him. He also quoted Quran 9:24, which states that the Muslims’ love for Allah, Muhammad, and jihad must be greater than their love for their family and possessions.
Al-Tayyeb’s statements seem to be aimed at bolstering his status and the status of Al-Azhar as leaders of the campaign against the Charlie Hebdo’s publication of the Muhammad cartoons. At the same time, such statements coming from the Sheikh of Al-Azhar – who stood by Egyptian President Al-Sisi at a crucial time in 2013, when the latter deposed the MB administration headed by Muhammad Morsi – can seriously undermine his and Al-Azhar’s standing with the Al-Sisi regime. This is because these statements, in essence, support Al-Sisi’s bitter rivals, namely the MB and its patron, Turkish President Erdogan, as well as Qatar, who support and finance terror organizations and extremist Islamic elements in the Muslim world and the West.
In the long run, Al-Tayyeb’s extremist position can also harm his and Al-Azhar’s standing with the international community, since it belies the view of Al-Tayyeb and Al-Azhar as champions of moderate Islam who combat extremism and violence and can help the French authorities appease the Muslim public and resolve the cartoon crisis…
“It is thanks to [the Prophet Muhammad] that nations and peoples were saved and the warped and crooked ways of societies were mended. We believers must revive the feelings of love for and loyalty to the Prophet and defend him [by sacrificing] our souls, our family members, our children and anything that is precious to us. Know that love for Muhammad is a personal duty incumbent upon all Muslims. The Quran [9:24] enjoined us to [love him] by saying, ‘If your parents and children and siblings and spouses and extended family and the wealth you have acquired and the trade you fear will decline and the homes you cherish – if all these are more beloved to you than Allah and His Messenger and than waging jihad in His Way, then wait until Allah brings about His Will. Allah does not guide the sinful.’ Whoever loves his son, his family or his money more than Allah and His Messenger must expect something [bad] to happen to him sooner or later. Moreover, he is numbered among the sinful. This is supported by Muhammad’s words [in a hadith], ‘None of you is counted among the believers until he loves me more than his son, his father and all of mankind.’ This does not mean love in the emotional or sensual sense, which is a feeling that one cannot control or direct, such as the love for some person, for one’s child or for one’s money. That [kind of] love is not chosen and is beyond one’s ability [to control]. What is required of the believers according to this hadith is cerebral love, out of personal choice, which arises from learning, study and the drawing of inferences, like one’s love of heroes, role models with lofty values, and others who exhibit the highest degree of human perfection.
“The Muslim world and its religious institutions, headed by Al-Azhar, were quick to condemn the heinous murder of the French teacher in Paris. This [murder is indeed] a saddening and painful event, but it is also very saddening and painful to see the insults to Islam and the Muslims in today’s world. This has become a means of attracting electoral votes. The [publication of] cartoons that insult our great Prophet, endorsed by some newspapers and magazines and by some political agendas, is a wild and wanton act of [spreading] rubbish that breaches every boundary of responsibility and decency, as well as the accepted international norms and laws. This is open hostility to this monotheistic faith and to its Prophet, who was sent by Allah as grace to the entire world.
“We at Al-Azhar, and all countries of the Muslim world, harshly condemn these rude [insults] that do not hurt the Muslims and their Prophet as much as they hurt those who are ignorant of the greatness of the honorable Prophet Muhammad. We call on the international community to draft international laws that criminalize hostility towards Muslims and discrimination [against them] in terms of rights, duties and mutual respect. We also call on the Muslim citizens of Western countries to integrate positively and consciously in these societies and in every framework that preserves their religious and cultural identity and prevents [people] from being swept by the provocations of the far right, by despicable racism and by the polarization [promoted by] the groups of political Islam. The Muslim citizens [of these countries] must confine themselves to peaceful, rational and legal measures in opposing the discourse of hate and in attaining their legitimate rights, taking an example from the virtues of their noble Prophet.
“I am very surprised that these flames of fitna [strife], hate and insult have flared in countries that always boasted that they are the cradle of civilization, culture, enlightenment, science, progressiveness and human rights. Their norms have become very confused, to the extent that they hold up the lamp of liberty and human rights in one hand, and the call for hate and conflagration in the other…”…
