Quran Sound, Sane and Rational?
That’s certainly doubtful. What’s certainly not doubtful is: The Quran is a ‘laughing stock’. Â (Ali Sina)
In the comment section of this site I asked a Muslim who said people should read the Quran instead of reading my articles, whether she has read the Quran. She replied, “Yes I did. Your strategies are not going to work on any sound, sane and rational mind. You’re wasting your time, take my word.”
I am not going to take her word, but I decided to quote a few verses of the Quran and ask Muslims to highlight the parts that are sound, sane and rational.
The Quran says (Q.2:31),
“Allah taught Adam all the names of the plants and animals.” And then the angels tested him to make sure he has remembered them.
So far zoologists have recorded 20,000 species of fish, 6,000 species of reptiles, 9,000 birds, 1,000 amphibians, and 15,000 species of mammals. And, although there are a million named species of insects, scientists estimate that there could be another million waiting to be discovered and named! This number does not include subspecies. There are even more species of plants.
Under this light can you still say that the verse 2:31 is sound, sane and rational?

In Defense of Wafa Sultan
The formidable Ali Sina rips the slick taqiyya spinmeister Tarek Fatah a new one:
Cross posted on Jihad Watch:
Further weakeningÂ the great myth of a moderate Islam, the slick and self-proclaimed moderate Muslim Tarek Fatah has now exposed himself as an enemy of those who are truly interested in defending human rights against the global jihad and Islamic supremacism. He did so by savaging the courageous freedom fighter Wafa Sultan in a National Post articleÂ here.
Abu Hamza: moderately radical or just the real deal?
Luckily, the Post was decent enough to publish this magnificent response: “Counterpoint: In defence of Wafa Sultan,” by Joanne Hill in theÂ National Post
Read it all, and read the comments at the National Post piece also. And then consult the Islamic sourceÂ here.
The formidable Ali Sina weighs in here:
I have always maintained that “moderate Muslim” is an oxymoron. We have two kinds of Muslims: Terrorist Muslims and ignorant Muslims.Â Â The former are those who know Islam well and live by its dictums. The latter have no clue about their religion and have an idealized image of Islam that has no bases in facts.
Mr. Tarek Fatah’sÂ editorial published in National Post on March 12, 2010 confirms my view.Â Â Fatah attended a debate between Dr. Wafa Sultan, the courageous ex-Muslim woman that shook the Arab world when in an Aljazeera televised debate she pointed out that the problem with the Muslim world is Islam, and Dr. Daniel Pipes, a scholar of Islamic history and the director of theÂ Middle East Forum.
In this debate Pipes argued that Islam is not essentially an intolerant religion and that there have been instances when Jews who were persecuted in Christian countries had sought refuge in Muslim lands. Sultan disagreed and reminded her audience that Muhammad had raided several Jewish tribes who lived in Arabia, massacred their unarmed men and allowed his marauding band to rape their women, while always reserving the prettiest for himself.
Upon hearing these comments, Fatah was “traumatized”.Â Â “Even a hardened secular Muslim such as myself was deeply hurt by what I heard that evening,” wrote Fatah.

Update: Joe Kaufman vs frivolous Muslim lawsuit
But that is, of course, what Islamic supremacists are trying to do, all over the world. Here is one example, and a magnificent response from the courageous Ali Sina of Faith Freedom: “A Formal Complaint Against FFI,” by Ali Sina atÂ Faith Freedom, January 17 (thanks to JW):
Update: of course, the Islamists are encouraged by the constant caving in, most recently here with the Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram who equated Jihad with terrorism and said that its objective is war against unbelievers.
“Jihad employs terror as an instrument to achieve its objectives. Such terror is directed against all and sundry, its victims are usually innocent people, and its goal is to overawe and overthrow the established authority.”
Accurate? Of course. Nevertheless, Chidambaram “eats his comments”- here>> He should have stood by his statement, but then again, he was trained by the finest liberal minds in the world at the Harvard University. They don’t grow balls there….
The following is a complaint made against faithfreedom International by Mr. Zameer Ahmed Jumlana, Secretary of All India Committee, Indian National League, to the Commissioner of Delhi Police, India.
To the desk of Y. S. Dadwal, Commissioner of Delhi Police, INDIA.
CC. faithreedom International
My attention is being drawn about Anti-Islamic provocative website www.faithfreedom.org . I personally check the website which contains the Alleged Pictures of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him) which are forbidden according to teachings of Islam. The Life History of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him) is also described at the said website in a much distorted manner. What is more objectionable is that Anti-Islamic propaganda is done by imposing them as ardent Muslim.
I am optimistic that a swift legal action will be taken against the above identified website.
Zameer Ahmed Jumlana
(Secretary All India Committee, Indian National League)
Dear Mr. Zameer Ahmed Jumlana,
Showing the pictures of Muhammad is forbidden by the teachings of Islam. However, we are not Muslims and we do not abide by the teachings of Islam. Isn’t it absurd that you expect everyone to live by your dictums?

* Nobody knows Islam better than ex-muslims like Ali Sina, Wafa Sultan, Ayaan Ali Hirsi or Ibn Warraq:
Since, thanks to Islamic terrorismÂ the interest to know Islam has pickedÂ and Islam has come under scrutiny, the westerners began asking where are the moderate Muslims. Well,Â there is none. The concept is absurd. Muslims view this issue differently. More>>
* Â Slavery, the worst form of it. The header is a bit misleading though: Â Maid-abuse is first and foremost a problem of nations like the Philippines, Sri Lanka, India and Indonesia who fail to protect their nationals in these awful Arab kingdoms. Unfortunately you are unlikely to hear a beep from them.Â Â
