"Shared values" on Eid al-Adha include Islamic revisionism

While Hajj Muslims Chant “Death to America,” “Death to Israel”,  Hussein Obama offers up “shared values”

This year’s Eid greetings say, in part:

On Eid, Muslims around the world will commemorate Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, and distribute food to those less fortunate — a reminder of the shared values and the common roots of three of the world’s major religions.

Those who don’t take religion seriously will read that and recall the account of Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice Isaac, Abraham’s son by Sarah and a Biblical patriarch of the Jewish people. But the Qur’an holds that the son in this account was not Isaac, but Ishmael. That’s a rather significant jab at “the common roots of three of the world’s major religions.”

Still, Robert Spencer gives Obama the benefit of the doubt:

Does this mean Obama is a practicing Muslim behind the White House walls and the mask is slipping? No.

But it is noteworthy in that it is sloppy. If it is intentional, it is disingenuous. If it is unintentional, it is alarmingly bumbling. In either case, it is symptomatic of a policy based on a glossing over of differences, and on lofty but false assumptions of common values, and compatible ideals of human rights and dignity. And the rest of that paragraph only continues to demonstrate all of those issues.

Utterly ignoring Islam’s teachings on the subjugation of women and non-Muslims, cruel and unusual punishments prescribed in the Qur’an, the death penalty for apostasy, and other abuses that hold many Muslim societies in arrested development and threaten human rights in the West does not make those teachings go away. Nor does it do away with the widespread human suffering caused by them.

Wishful thinking is an alarming basis for policy, whether economic, diplomatic, or for national security. And as the old military adage cautions: “Hope is not a method.”

Obama’s Message to Hajj Pilgrims: “a reminder of the shared values”

Atlas Shrugs

Which son?

Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of the Sacrifice on Nov. 17, by sacrificial killing of sheep, goats, cows or camels. The slaughter commemorates the biblical story of Abraham, who was on the verge of sacrificing his son to obey God’s command when God interceded by substituting a ram in the child’s place.

The President’s message is consistent, too. Hardwired for submission, surrender, and delusion.

Statement by Muslim POTUS Obama on Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha

Obama: Michelle and I extend our greetings for a happy Eid-ul-Adha to Muslims worldwide and wish safe travels to those performing Hajj.  This year, nearly three million pilgrims from more than 160 countries – including the United States – have gathered in Mecca and neighboring sites to perform the Hajj rituals and stand together in prayer.

On Eid, Muslims around the world will commemorate Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, and distribute food to those less fortunate – a reminder of the shared values and the common roots of three of the world’s major religions.

There is nothing, even remotely, in common with Judaism or Christianity. As I noted in an earlier post, the mention of Abraham, the first Jew, in Obama’s mash note is particularly galling. That story was stolen from the Jewish people, and the sons switched …….. Issac for Ishmael. Falsifying my religion and that of Christianity is not in my value system.

Tiny minority of excremists doesn’t get the message, shouts “death to America, death to Israel”

Hajj pilgrims chant “Death to America,” “Death to Israel”

Tens of thousands of Muslims chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” at the annual Hajj pilgrimage, which the Ayatollah of Iran called “a symbol of spirituality.”

Jordanian Princess Appeals to KRudd to Prevent Halal Slaughter

PRINCESS Alia bint al-Hussein of Jordan has appealed to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to stop the ritual slaughter of conscious animals for halal meat in Australia.

The princess, sister of King Abdullah II of Jordan, told The Ageshe had written to Mr Rudd to voice her concerns that any lowering of animal welfare standards in Australia for religious reasons would be a blow to Australia’s reputation and undermine progress in the region.

British Town Lights Up in Dysentery Green For 'Eid'

* Oh well, if it helps these poor citizens from seeing their city burned to the ground its a preferable option, don’t you think? At least they’re not painting the sidewalks green like here in Sarajevo earlier this year, at least not yet: 

Sidewalks

Green pavements deemed “provocation” 

“Muslims are sending a message of intolerance and a perfidious scene of ethnic cleansing that was preconceived as a way to drive away people of other ethnicities and religions living in Sarajevo,” said NGO President Leo Pločkini.

It is clear that Sarajevo wants to be a greater Tehran than the capital city of the Islamic Republic of Iran itself,” Pločkinić surmised. 

* Not to worry: they will stop when they run out of paint!
