Grand Mufti of Jerusalem: Anyone who cooperates with Trump peace deal is betraying Allah and Muhammad

FEB 19, 2020 BY ROBERT SPENCER


There is an old-fashioned expression of amazement, “You don’t mean it!” And that’s exactly what establishment foreign policy analysts say every time a supporter of the “Palestinian” jihad tells us that it is all about Islam. Get the real story in The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process.

“PA: Rejecting Trump’s plan is a religious obligation; You ‘betray Allah’ if you cooperate with the ‘deal of the century,’” by Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, February 14, 2020:

The Grand Mufti of the Palestinian Authority Muhammad Hussein has ruled that Palestinians are forbidden to cooperate in any way with US President Trump’s peace plan, the so-called “deal of the century.” Anyone cooperating with the plan is “betraying Allah,” and those who support it “deserve to be cursed by Allah, his angels, and all people”:

“[PA] Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories Muhammad Hussein published a religious ruling that forbids cooperating with the ‘deal of the century’ and those promoting it, as its goal in general is to eliminate the Palestinian cause forever. The mufti said in a statement yesterday [Feb. 11, 2020] that anyone who cooperates with the deal is betraying Allah, His Messenger [Muhammad], the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem, and Palestine… those who are planning this unjust aggressiveness, or willingly supporting or being silent about it, deserve to be cursed by Allah, his angels, and all people.” [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 12, 2020]

The ruling echoes the statement of Mahmoud Al-Habbash, the PA’s Supreme Shari’ah Judge and Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari’ah Justice who before the revelation of Trump’s deal threatened that whoever accepts the plan “will pay the price of treason,” as Palestinian Media Watch documented.

Abbas’ Fatah addressed Trump directly in a video, threatening that they will “declare a war that only Allah can extinguish” if Trump continues with his peace plan. Fatah has also encouraged violence, telling Palestinians to defend “Palestine” with “blood and soul” to make sure the deal “does not pass.”

The following is a longer excerpt of the report on the mufti’s fatwa:

Headline: “The [PA] grand mufti forbids cooperating with the deal of the century and those who are promoting it”

“[PA] Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories Muhammad Hussein published a religious ruling that forbids cooperating with the ‘deal of the century’ (i.e., US President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan; see note below) and those promoting it, as its goal in general is to eliminate the Palestinian cause forever.

The mufti said in a statement yesterday [Feb. 11, 2020] that anyone who cooperates with the deal is betraying Allah, His Messenger [Muhammad], the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem, and Palestine. He added that ‘the deal of the century’ steals Jerusalem from its legal owners, denies the Muslims their third [holiest] mosque, their first direction of prayer, and the place to which their Prophet, peace be upon him, travelled, and also does away with the refugees’ right and delegitimizes the demand of a people that was forcefully uprooted from its land to receive its legitimate rights.

He noted that the deal is meant to cancel the right of our people to live on its land in dignity, strengthens the thieving oppressor, supports it, and aggressively and unfairly grants it most of the Palestinian land that is scented with the Martyrs’ pure blood… which confirms that those who are planning this unjust aggressiveness, or willingly supporting or being silent about it, deserve to be cursed by Allah, his angels, and all people.”

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 12, 2020] Muhammad Hussein also holds the positions of preacher at the Al-Aqsa Mosque Palestinian Supreme Fatwa Council Chairman, and Deputy Secretary-General and acting Secretary-General of the PLO Popular National Conference of Jerusalem….

WATCH: Renowned Islamic Scholar: Jews Are More Dangerous Than Coronavirus, AIDS, Cholera; Jihad Purifies Our Bodies and Souls, Can Save People from These Diseases

By Geller Report Staff – on March 11, 2020

This is how Tlaib, Omar, and Sarsour were raised. This is what Bernie Sanders has legitimized, since he has proudly brought this kind of Jew-hating filth into his campaign. This is what will haunt American Jews for decades to come, since most of America’s Jewish organizations do not have the courage to take on Sanders and the Left. Shame on them!

Jordanian Islamic Scholar Ahmad Al-Shahrouri: The Jews Are More Dangerous Than Coronavirus, AIDS, and Cholera; Jihad Purifies Our Bodies and Souls, Can Save People from These Diseases

By Memri, March 8, 2020:

Jordanian Islamic scholar Ahmad Al-Shahrouri said in a March 8 episode of his show on Yarmouk TV – a Jordanian TV channel affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood – that the Jews are more dangerous than coronavirus, AIDS, cholera, and every disease in the world. He also said that to be saved from these illnesses, one should remember the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jihad, which he explained is a means of purification of one’s soul and body. Sheikh Al-Shahrouri added that being saved from coronavirus serves to give one the honor of liberating the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Al-Shahrouri is a professor of shari’a at Al-Zaytoonah University of Jordan and serves as the imam of the university’s mosque.

Ahmad Al-Shahrouri: “Brothers, we are talking about epidemics and diseases that afflict the body, but what about epidemics that afflict the soul and the mind? An epidemic that afflicts the mind… Let me ask you a question: Is it okay for us to talk about the coronavirus because it is ‘hot news’ and forget about the Jews, who are more dangerous than AIDS, coronavirus, cholera, and all the diseases of this world?“If you want to be saved from these deadly diseases, we should all remember Jihad. Jihad is a means of purification. We should all remember Al-Aqsa Mosque. If we attach our souls to Al-Aqsa, they will be purified. Our bodies will be purified. Anyone who remembers Al-Aqsa loves life. He is saved from the coronavirus, but not in order to get married, build, or study – rather, he is saved so that he can have the honor of liberating the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

The African Islamic State from the ocean to Sudan

We have gone from the Christianization of Africa to the Africanization of Christianity. These Christians are now under terror attacks everywhere.


Giulio Meotti,  27/02/20

“The terrorists’ dream is to conquer northern Burkina Faso to create an Islamic state from the ocean, Mauritania, to Sudan”. Only in this way, as bishop Pier Giorgio Debernardi said to the Italian magazine Tempi can we explain the exponential increase in attacks in the country of West Africa, especially in the north:

“We had 3 in 2015, 12 in 2016, 29 in 2017, 137 in 2018, more than 250 in 2019 and this year we are only in February, but we have already suffered dozens”.

If demography is destiny, the future of Christianity is in Africa (the West is post-Christian). By 2060, more than 4 out of 10 Christians in the world will live in the sub-Saharan Africa, from 26% in 2015, according to the demographic data of the Pew Research Center.

Likewise, sub-Saharan Africa will be home to an increasing proportion of the world’s Muslims. Between 2015 and 2060, the share of all Muslims in the region is expected to increase from 16% to 27%, surpassing the Middle East and North Africa as the second largest Muslim population in the world. In a century, the number of Muslims living in sub-Saharan Africa has increased more than 20 times, from 11 million in 1900 to 234 million in 2010. At the same time, the number of Christians has grown 70 times from 7 million to 470 million.

We have gone from the Christianization of Africa to the Africanization of Christianity. These Christians are now under terror attacks everywhere.

Last week, news came from Kenya: a bus stopped by the Islamists, many Christians killed for refusing to convert to Islam. Then from Nigeria: many churches burned, many Christians kidnapped and many killed. Ron Boyd-MacMillan writes in a report for Open Doors that Islamic extremism has two global centers of gravity, one in the Arab Middle East, the other in sub-Saharan Africa.

This is why the pace of Islamisation in Niger and many neighbouring countries has been soaring. Issoufou Yahaya, a Niger historian, tells the Wall Street Journal that when he studied at the University of Niamey in late 1980, there was not a single mosque on his campus. “Today we have more prayer rooms than classrooms,” Yahaya said.

With Coptic Ethiopia and the small Christian kingdoms of southern Sudan, for centuries Islam was unable to cross the Horn of Africa. This created a religious division between Muslims and Christians that dominated the politics of many African countries. Islamism is now breaking this barrier.

Robert Sarah, a famous cardinal and former president of the Episcopal Conference of West Africa, said: “Islam has only one project: to make Africa an Islamic continent. There is indeed a well-developed will and strategy to Islamize and even Arabize Africa. And there are the financial means and media propaganda available for the success of this plan”.And it will have immense consequences for the West.

The Sick Reason Why Allah Created Humans According to Islam

Apostate Prophet
The question: “Why did Allah create us?” has a very short and simple answer in Islam, and it’s very typical of Islam.

Taiseer Hussein of Hizb ut-Tahrir America: We Will Conquer Rome and Liberate India and Spain 

#7842 | 03:34
Source: The Internet

Taiseer Hussein, a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir America, said in a speech at a January 19, 2020 conference held by Hizb ut-Tahrir America in Glendale Heights, IL that Allah promised to the Islamic nation that it will inherit the Earth in its entirety. He said that the Prophet Muhammad had prophesied that Islam would conquer Constantinople and Rome and that a Caliphate will be established, and he prayed that the latter two prophecies would soon be fulfilled just as the first had been. Emphasizing that these prophecies cannot come true if Muslims “implement disbelief” or follow the corruption of the West, Hussein said that the Islamic nation will re-establish the Caliphate, conquer Rome, and liberate Palestine, Kashmir, India, and Spain, which he said is also occupied Islamic land. The conference was titled “Help of Allah Is Near.”

Taiseer Hussein: “Allah promised this Islamic nation in this Quran that the Islamic nation will inherit the earth, that the Islamic nation will rule over this earth. Not just part of the earth – the Earth. 

[…]

“Clearly, these hadiths remind us about glad tidings that the Prophet gave us. These are: Number one – the opening [i.e. conquest] of Constantinople. Number two – the opening [conquest] of Rome. Rome? Which Rome? Are you talking about Rome, in Italy? The Vatican? That Rome? Yes, indeed, that Rome. How did you know? The hadith said so. 

[…]

“Have you come across that [event in] history that Rome was opened [conquered] since that hadith [was narrated]? Nope. So that is our chance. That is our chance, Allah willing, that Rome will be opened [conquered] by the promise of Allah, which was mentioned in this hadith of the Prophet Muhammad. Then the third glad tiding is the resumption of the Caliphate on the method of the Prophet. Among these three glad tidings, one has been fulfilled, which is the opening [conquest] of Constantinople. The rest will be fulfilled soon, Allah willing.

[…]

“We, as a nation, will witness, Allah willing, the return of the Caliphate upon the method of the Prophet and then as a nation, we will open [conquer] Rome and liberate Palestine and the rest. We pray to Allah to make us among those who will witness this achievement and these glad tidings. But brothers and sisters, be sure, that these glad tidings will never come through following and implementing disbelief in all of its forms, or by following the corruption and the corrupt politics and policies of the West, or by seeking support and friendship from the likes of the U.S., Britain, U.N., the Security Council, name them, for these are partners in the criminality and in preventing the nation from returning and uniting under Islam.

[…]“We have no doubt that Allah will deliver His promise and grant us the Caliphate upon the method of the Prophethood. Under its leadership, Rome will be opened [conquered], Kashmir will be liberated, India will be liberated, Palestine will be liberated, Andalusia… Sometimes we forget about Andalusia, which is known as Spain. That land was ours for 800 years and it is under occupation, such as Kashmir, such as Palestine.”

Why Now? Islam’s Rise Explained

Posted: 03 Mar 2020

The question has been in the back of my mind for awhile. Why now? Why is militant Islam rising now? What has changed? Is it because western powers, in their colonizing days, had divided and conquered the Middle East, and for decades kept them weak? Is it because after defeating the U.S.S.R. in Afghanistan they have a newfound confidence? Is it because they learned something (from the CIA perhaps) during that conflict about training soldiers that they’re now using in service of jihad?

I have been wondering how Muslims have changed or how their conditions have changed. But something else now seems more likely: The West has changed.

The change has been good in so many ways. But it has weakened our ability to protect ourselves against militant Islam.

Islam has been through two previous jihads. During the first one, Islam conquered much of western Europe, coming up through Spain and making it to the middle of France before they were stopped. In another wave of conquest, they came in through eastern Europe and made it to Austria before they were stopped at the walls of Vienna. They receded in power from that point on. Europe had united against them under the banner of Christianity.

But religious fervor has declined in the West. I personally think that’s a good thing. But what uniting force has replaced it?

The bad news is the thing that replaced religious fervor has made the West less capable of defending itself. It is as if we have removed a form of immunity we once had.

Religious belief has been replaced by a belief in multiculturalism, which by itself (and generally speaking) is also a good thing. The passionate belief in everyone’s right to believe what they want, and the belief that every culture is unique and special and worthy — these have replaced Christian dogmatism in the West.

A widespread belief in multiculturalism is great, but will it help us protect ourselves from invasion? Will it help us unite against a common foe?

Multiculturalism has become almost a religion and is very widespread throughout western countries. It is one of the reasons different cultures have been able to live together in relative peace in democratic countries.

This tremendous spread of tolerance is wonderful. But it has been allowing Islam to rise relatively unimpeded. After all, militant Muslims have a right to believe what they want, right? No culture is better than any other, and it is arrogant and old-fashioned to say otherwise, right? That means no religion is worse than any other. Everyone has the right to believe and preach what they want, even if it is jihad, even in downtown London and New York City. Muslim leaders have openly exhorted their followers to overthrow the government — something that in any other context would be treason and sedition.

In other words, no matter how passionate we may be about multiculturalism or how many of us are united about its rightness, it won’t help us defend ourselves.

What could help us defend ourselves? That’s the question. What is worth defending? If we can’t figure that out, the orthodox Muslims will win. Commitment always beats half-heartedness. Absolute commitment crushes it easily.

What are we westerners absolutely committed to? What is worth fighting for and even dying for?

I believe the answer is freedom.

In fact, one of the reasons people have come to respect and value multiculturalism is that it helps us live in freedom. It helps people of different ethnic and religious backgrounds to live together without harassment and in relative peace.

People in the West value freedom, and they value it enough to defend it — conservatives and liberals and everywhere in between. We believe in freedom of speech, freedom to worship (or not) as we wish. We believe in the power to vote for both women and men, and the freedom to think and read whatever we want.

Orthodox Islam is passionately anti-freedom.

None of the rights above are allowed in an Islamic state, and make no mistake, an Islamic state is what orthodox Muslims are after. They want to make western countries into Islamic states, and you may be surprised to discover, they are already doing it.

This is a war. Freedom against slavery. Am I overstating my case? Not even close. When you live in an Islamic state ruled by Sharia law, you have to pray 5 times a day. Women have to be accompanied by a male relative wherever they go, and they cannot get a job. They have no voice, they have no rights. Men are slaves to the Islamic state, and women are the mens’ slaves. (Read first-hand accounts of what it is like in an Islamic state.)

You probably know all this already. But many people, in their passionate commitment to multiculturalism, refuse to entertain the idea. Try talking about the nature of militant Islam in polite company, and most people will gasp as if you had blasphemed, and they will passionately defend Islam, even if they know nothing about it. This is multicultural tolerance working to defend the right of everyone to believe as they wish. If it wasn’t so dangerous in the long run, even a blind commitment to multiculturalism would be beautiful in its own way.

But if orthodox Muslims gain more power, recruits, and technology, militant Islam will become harder and harder to ignore, and the situation will become increasingly serious.

We the people of the West, people who live in liberal democracies, will need to unify to preserve our liberties. We will need a powerful unifying belief we can passionately defend. When that time comes, remember: One possible answer is freedom.

Islam, Global Muslim Jew-Hatred, And Failed Jewish “Leadership”

Sheer cowardice in the face of canonical Islamic anti-Semitism. 

Mar 3, 2020 Andrew G. Bostom
[Editor’s note: Below is the text of Dr. Andrew Bostom’s 10-minute talk in Nashville TN, on Thursday Feb 27, 2020, during a ‘Proclaiming Justice to The Nations, Panel on Antisemitism’, at The National Religious Broadcasters Convention.]

NOTE: Click on the URL at the bottom to view the video

Islamic Law, Sharia, per Koran 9:29—the 9th sura or chapter, the 29th verse—mandates waging jihad war to submit Jews and Christians to a humiliating status of religious discrimination, and legal inequality, if they do not accept the true faith, i.e., Islam.

Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

But Islam also singles the Jews out, uniquely, for opprobrium, as is evident in the 7th verse of the Koran’s first chapter, called the “fatiha,” or “opening,” which pious Muslims repeat 17- times daily. This verse refers to those who have “incurred Allah’s anger”, and both a tradition of Islam’s prophet Muhammad himself, and over 13 centuries of authoritative Koranic commentaries, till now, maintain this reference is to the Jews. Why have they engendered Allah’s anger? Here is a 1940 summary “rationale” by the great scholar of Islam’s anti-Jewish polemic Moshe Perlmann, from a chapter entitled, “Jews in the Koran and Traditions” (which mirrors a 1966 work by Muhammad Sayyid Tantawi, modern Sunni Islam’s greatest Koranic commentator, and Papal equivalent Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University, Sunni Islam’s Vatican, from 1996 to 2010, also entitled, “Jews in the Koran and Traditions”):

[Koran] …[T]he Jews transgressed Allah’s commandments and flouted the prophets, and even slew them (3:181).Therefore many punishments fell upon them (2:61); e.g., some of them were turned into apes for desecrating the sabbath (2:65; 7:166; 5:60 claims “apes & pigs”)… The believers [Muslims] will find that they [the Jews] are their fiercest enemies (5:82)…Therefore, after they had rejected many friendly overtures (2:59; 5:81), it was decided that they must be fought against, made tributaries, and compelled to pay the poll-tax, as a mark of their humiliation (9:29)…

[Traditions] …[T]hey did not shrink from plotting, practicing sorcery and poisoning (including Muhammad himself), until they were finally crushed and driven out of Arabia. The Jews extended their hatred of the Prophet to all Muslims …They became, in a way, the incarnation of evil. No wonder that, when the world comes to an end, and when Dajjal (Muslim Antichrist figure) threatens to destroy those of the true faith, the Jews will be betrayed in their hiding-places even by the crying of the rock: “Here is a Jew behind me. Kill him.””

The discrimination shared by Jews and Christians under deliberately abasing Sharia mandates is what historian Bat Ye’or called “dhimmitude”—which derives from Koran 9:29’s “dhimma” pact of submission which spared the lives of Jews and Christians who did not convert to Islam. She stated,

For me, as a Jew, this insight into Christian dhimmitude represented an intellectual experience that was not easy to undertake. This was not the domineering face of European Christendom, persecuting and triumphant, but the discovery of its persecuted, humiliated, and suffering other side. In short, Eastern Christianity’s history of dhimmitude under Islam is a sort of ‘Jewish experience’—endured this time by Christians.

What was that “Jewish experience,” past as prologue, shaped by both the broader Islamic institution of dhimmitude, and Islam’s own unique canonical Islamic Jew-hatred, derived from the Koran itself, the traditions of Islam’s prophet Muhammad (the “hadith”), and the earliest pious Muslim biographies of Muhammad (or “sira”)?

Mythically “tolerant” Muslim Spain, “Andalusia”, before the Reconquista—in fact a land of continuous jihad, with strict application of the Sharia for both Christians and Jews— illustrates clearly the simultaneous Jewish experience of dhimmitude, and theological Islamic Jew-hatred. 

Moshe Perlmann described how inflammatory rhetoric rooted in canonical Islam—including “profuse” usage of the Koranic epithet “ape” for Jews—declared, according to the sira, by Muhammad himself before he slaughtered the surrendered males of the Medinan Jewish tribe Banu Qurayza—and the notion Jews had breached the Koranic dhimma pact of submission, through their “cunning”—precipitated the mass slaughter and destruction of the Jewish community in Granada, during a 1066 pogrom by rampaging Muslims. It is estimated that four thousand Jews perished, annihilating the entire community, and making it the largest anti-Jewish pogrom, till then, in European history. Eight decades later, the Jewish sage Maimonides barely survived the Berber Muslim Almohad jihad ravages of Spain and North Africa which slaughtered tens of thousands, forcibly converted the Jewish survivors to Islam, and subjected these forced Jewish converts to a Muslim Inquisition which lasted through the close of the 12th century. Maimonides in his 1172 “Epistle to the Jews of Yemen”—who wrote to the sage as they were suffering from a wave of anti-Jewish pogroms and forced conversions to Islam—urged them to remain steadfast, while lamenting,

The nation of Ishmael…persecute us severely and devise ways to harm us and to debase us…None has matched it in debasing and humiliating us.

Today, the grotesque myth of Islamic tolerance of Jews, in particular, persists, even as we are in the midst of a global pandemic of Muslim Antisemitism and Anti-Jewish violence. This violent hatred is driven by the same unreformed and unrepentant canonical Islamic themes Perlmann described in the 1940s—which date to the advent of Islam—as promulgated, now, by Islam’s most authoritative religious teaching institutions, Sunni and Shiite alike.

Analyses from the ADL published between 2014 to Nov. 21, 2019, which determined the prevalence (occurrence) of “extreme antisemitism”—i.e., agreement with at least 6/11 antisemitic stereotypes, have demonstrated:

  • The 16 most Antisemitic countries in the world are all in the Muslim Middle East, where extreme Antisemitism has a 74 to 93% prevalence.
     
  • Extreme Antisemitism is 50-55% prevalent among Western European Muslims, i.e., ~3-fold the rate of Western European Christians, or non-Muslims overall.
     
  • Extreme Antisemitism in the U.S., a much more philosemitic country, has a 34% prevalence among Muslims, 2.4-fold the 14% rate in non-Muslims


This excess of Muslim Jew-hatred is accompanied not only by endless jihad violence against Israeli Jews (450-500 thwarted attacks per year in 2018, and 2019; additionally, thousands of rocket barrages), but 3- to 10-fold increased rates of anti-Jewish violence, or violent threats, against Western European Jews, by Muslims, relative to violence from the Left, or Right, and 23 Muslim jihadist attacks against American Jews since 9/11, 16 of which were thwarted, thankfully, but 7 that were completed, resulting in 8 deaths and 8 serious injuries—the most recent being Muslim convert Grafton Thomas’s attack on a Monsey, New York synagogue, December 28, 2019, during a Chanukah candle lighting ceremony.

Current Al-Azhar University Grand Imam, and Sunni Muslim Papal equivalent, Ahmad al-Tayeb, during an October, 2013 interview, re-affirmed, authoritatively, the canonical Islamic animus which fuels this global orgy of Muslim Jew-hatred, and violence. Riveting on Koran 5:82, al-Tayeb stated brazenly:

A verse in the Koran explains the Muslims’ relations with the Jews…See how we suffer today from global Zionism and Judaism…Since the inception of Islam 1,400 years ago, we have been suffering from Jewish and Zionist interference in Muslim affairs. The Koran (5:82) said it and history has proven it: ‘You shall find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers to be the Jews…’

850 years ago Maimonides stated with the understandable resignation of a subjugated Jewish dhimmi in Islamdom:

We have done as our sages of blessed memory instructed us, bearing the lies and absurdities of Ishmael. We listen, but remain silent…In spite of all this, we are not spared from the ferocity of their wickedness, and their outbursts at any time. On the contrary, the more we suffer and choose to conciliate them, the more they choose to act belligerently toward us.

It is unconscionable that today, due to sheer cowardice, Jewish and Christian leadership refuses to condemn the canonical Islamic Jew-hatred proclaimed by Grand Imam al-Tayeb, and thousands of lesser Muslim clerics, worldwide.

Imam: Corona virus “is one of Almighty Allah’s soldiers… He is unleashing it on those who attack His believers”

By Pamela Geller – on March 9, 2020

More enlightened thinking from the religion of peace.

CORONA VIRUS “IS ONE OF ALMIGHTY ALLAH’S SOLDIERS… HE IS UNLEASHING IT ON THOSE WHO ATTACK HIS BELIEVERS,” SAYS PREACHER ON OFFICIAL PA TV

Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik | Mar 9, 2020
NOTE: Click on the URL at the bottom for access to the video

  • “The true meaning of the epidemics is a… trial for the believers and a punishment for the sinners”
  • “If [believers]… place their trust in Allah, then they will receive an enormous reward, and whoever dies in the epidemic [among the believers] merits the reward of Martyrdom”
  • “Corruption has never appeared among any people without mass death reaching them”
  • The PA Ministry of Religious Affairs is responsible for appointing Imams in the mosques in the PA

Before Corona broke out in the PA, a preacher on official Palestinian Authority TV taught that the virus is “one of Almighty Allah’s soldiers” and that Allah is punishing the sinners – “those who attack His believers”:

Unidentified preacher: “The true meaning of the epidemics is a trial from Almighty Allah and a punishment. A trial for the believers and a punishment for the sinners… If they have stood firm and place their trust in Allah, then they will receive an enormous reward, and whoever dies in the epidemic merits the reward of Martyrdom… If the epidemic harms non-believers, from among the abusers and the aggressors, then that is punishment… This [Corona] virus is one of Almighty Allah’s soldiers, and He is unleashing it on those who attack His believers…

[Official PA TV, Feb. 28, 2020]

The unidentified preacher further explained that epidemics are “a trial for the believers and a punishment for the sinners.” To underscore this religious view – that epidemics are a punishment – the preacher quoted Islam’s Prophet Muhammad and his uncle Ibn Abbas who both explained that plagues are the punishment for people in places where “abomination” and “corruption” occur:

The Sunna (i.e., Islamic tradition) has indicated that acts of abomination and corruption cause epidemics. Prophet [Muhammad] said: ‘An abomination has not appeared among a people… without plague and suffering breaking out…’ And Ibn Abbas (an uncle of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad and an early Quranic scholar –Ed.) said: ‘Corruption has never appeared among any people without mass death reaching them.’”

However, since Muslim believers are also dying from Corona the preacher added that believers who die from the epidemic are being tested and “if they have stood firm and place their trust in Allah, then they will receive an enormous reward, and whoever dies in the epidemic merits the reward of Martyrdom.”

The PA preacher’s message is that because of the corruption and abomination in the world, “Allah’s soldiers” – in this case the Corona virus – bring retribution on humanity.

While this preacher was not identified, his sermon was broadcast by official PA TV and the PA Ministry of Religious Affairs has just announced once again that it is responsible for appointing Imams in the mosques:

“[PA] Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs Husam Abu Al-Rub… said that the ministry is making sure to support the mosques and appoint skilled and capable Imams and preachers so that they will take upon themselves the responsibility of managing the mosques, organizing them, supervising them, leading the worshippers, and giving the Friday sermon.”

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 29, 2020]

The following are longer excerpts of the sermon and the report on the appointment of Imams by the PA Ministry of Religious Affairs:

“The [PA] Ministry of Religious Affairs yesterday, Friday [Feb. 28, 2020], inaugurated the Al-Nour Mosque in the village of Shuqba west of Ramallah, which was built with donated money.

Present at the inauguration were [PA] Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs Husam Abu Al-Rub, Director-General of Religious Affairs in Ramallah and El-Bireh Sheikh Wafiq Alawi, Director-General of Mosques Sheikh Hassan Shehadeh, and Deputy District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Hamdan Barghouti…

Abu Al-Rub announced the appointment of the mosque’s Imam and preacher, and said that the ministry is making sure to support the mosques and appoint skilled and capable Imams and preachers so that they will take upon themselves the responsibility of managing the mosques, organizing them, supervising them, leading the worshippers, and giving the Friday sermon.

He also ordered that based on the leadership’s instructions and on the orders of [PA] Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh, they have begun to fill the shortage in the mosques by providing 500 salaried religious positions to give the sermons and lead the prayers in the central and secondary mosques throughout the homeland’s districts.”

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 29, 2020]

Unidentified preacher: “Dear Muslims, the true meaning of the epidemics is a trial from Almighty Allah and a punishment. A trial for the believers and a punishment for the sinners. A trial for the believers and a punishment for the sinners, the aggressors, the arrogant, those acting strongly, and those oppressing the Muslims. And if it has harmed the believers who are upholding the words of Supreme Allah, then that is a trial. And if they have stood firm and place their trust in Allah, then they will receive an enormous reward, and whoever dies in the epidemic merits the reward of Martyrdom, Almighty Allah willing…

Prophet [Muhammad], Allah’s blessing be upon him, said: ‘The epidemic is Martyrdom for every Muslim.’ … And if the epidemic harms non-believers, from among the abusers and the aggressors, then that is punishment. For Almighty Allah has announced that the tests, difficulties, and disasters that befall the believers are ‘for what your hands have earned’ [Quran, Sura 42:30, Sahih International translation]. Allah said: ‘And whatever strikes you of disaster – it is for what your hands have earned; but He pardons much’ [Ibid.]. And this [Corona] virus is one of Almighty Allah’s soldiers, and He is unleashing it on those who attack His believers

The Sunna (i.e., Islamic tradition) has indicated that acts of abomination and corruption cause epidemics. Prophet [Muhammad] said: ‘An abomination has not appeared among a people… without plague and suffering breaking out, the likes of which had not been among their forefathers.’ And Ibn Abbas (an uncle of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad–Ed.) said: ‘Corruption has never appeared among any people without mass death reaching them.’ And corruption is abuse, and what abuse is greater than attacking a Muslim because he is a Muslim? Dear Muslims, this event is a sign that should be paid attention to…

Dear Muslims, the epidemic and the transfer of the disease from sick people to healthy people is a scientific fact. It is a known matter among the Muslim scholars, and has a source in religion. Prophet [Muhammad] said: ‘Flee the leper as you would flee the lion.’ And this is a reliable Hadith (sayings and practices attributed to Islam’s Prophet Muhammad –Ed.) that Imam Al-Bukhari related.”[Official PA TV, Feb. 28, 2020]

Totalitarian Islam
Totalitarianism is a political doctrine that seeks to control all aspects of a society, its economy, its laws and government, its culture.

Islam is a complete way of life, a total civilization, not just a religion. It is also a culture and a political system of Sharia laws which establish its supremacy. There is no aspect of personal and public life that is not included in the Sharia.

Not just Muslims but all people must submit to the Sharia. The very name, Islam, means to submit, submit to Mohammed and the Koran in all things: religious, political and cultural.

Mohammed practiced totalitarianism. All people around him had to submit to his demands. After Arabia submitted, Mohammed left Arabia and began his mission to have Sharia rule the world.

Both the Koran and Mohammed command the terror of jihad on non-Muslims or Kafirs until Islam dominates. After Mohammed died, the caliphs killed all apostates and conquered all the Middle East and northern Africa.

After Islam enters a society, over time, the society becomes totally Islamic. This is totalitarianism.

Islam – The Completely Intolerant Religion

BY SATYAM   19 Feb 2020

“And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.” (Quran 8.39)

“He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), that He may make it (Islam) superior over all religions. And All-Sufficient is Allah as a Witness.” (Quran 48.28)

“And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the hereafter he will be one of the losers.” (Quran 3.85) “For the worst of beasts in the sight of Allah are those who reject Him: They will not believe.” (Quran 8.55)

Muhammad said: “I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah.” (Sahih Muslim 30)

“Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam. Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, then surely, Allah is Swift in calling to account.” (Quran 3.19)

“Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” (Quran 9.29)

“The Prophet said, ‘I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me. 1. Allah made me victorious by awe by His terrorizing my enemies. 2. The earth has been made for me. 3. Booty has been made lawful for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. 4. I have been given the right of intercession. 5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.’” (Sahih-al-Bukhari V1B7N1331)

Muhammad said, “I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, none has the right to be worshipped but Allah” (Sahih al-Bukhari 6924) “Allah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practice their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam)..” (Quran 24.55)Ibn Kathir commentary on the above verse:  “This is a promise from Allah to His Messenger that He would cause his Ummah to become successors on earth, i.e., they would become the leaders and rulers of mankind, through whom He would reform the world and to whom people would submit.”

COMMENTARY: few individuals are aware that once any territory is ruled by Islam, that territory (whether an entire nation, a state, or a city) belongs to Islam FOREVER – got that? FOREVER – their dogma says what it means and they mean what they say, commanded by their god and his messenger FOREVER – incapable of ever being overridden, changed, modified, or destroyed – the words are believed by Muslims and will be realized once the Caliphate returns – there can be no underestimating these prophecies, denying them, or disregarding them – they are what they are and they are believed by Muslims

Taiseer Hussein of Hizb ut-Tahrir America: We Will Conquer Rome and Liberate India and Spain 

#7842 Source: The Internet

Taiseer Hussein, a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir America, said in a speech at a January 19, 2020 conference held by Hizb ut-Tahrir America in Glendale Heights, IL that Allah promised to the Islamic nation that it will inherit the Earth in its entirety. He said that the Prophet Muhammad had prophesied that Islam would conquer Constantinople and Rome and that a Caliphate will be established, and he prayed that the latter two prophecies would soon be fulfilled just as the first had been. Emphasizing that these prophecies cannot come true if Muslims “implement disbelief” or follow the corruption of the West, Hussein said that the Islamic nation will re-establish the Caliphate, conquer Rome, and liberate Palestine, Kashmir, India, and Spain, which he said is also occupied Islamic land. The conference was titled “Help of Allah Is Near.”

Taiseer Hussein: “Allah promised this Islamic nation in this Quran that the Islamic nation will inherit the earth, that the Islamic nation will rule over this earth. Not just part of the earth – the Earth. 

[…]

“Clearly, these hadiths remind us about glad tidings that the Prophet gave us. These are: Number one – the opening [i.e. conquest] of Constantinople. Number two – the opening [conquest] of Rome. Rome? Which Rome? Are you talking about Rome, in Italy? The Vatican? That Rome? Yes, indeed, that Rome. How did you know? The hadith said so. 

[…]

“Have you come across that [event in] history that Rome was opened [conquered] since that hadith [was narrated]? Nope. So that is our chance. That is our chance, Allah willing, that Rome will be opened [conquered] by the promise of Allah, which was mentioned in this hadith of the Prophet Muhammad. Then the third glad tiding is the resumption of the Caliphate on the method of the Prophet. Among these three glad tidings, one has been fulfilled, which is the opening [conquest] of Constantinople. The rest will be fulfilled soon, Allah willing.

[…]

“We, as a nation, will witness, Allah willing, the return of the Caliphate upon the method of the Prophet and then as a nation, we will open [conquer] Rome and liberate Palestine and the rest. We pray to Allah to make us among those who will witness this achievement and these glad tidings. But brothers and sisters, be sure, that these glad tidings will never come through following and implementing disbelief in all of its forms, or by following the corruption and the corrupt politics and policies of the West, or by seeking support and friendship from the likes of the U.S., Britain, U.N., the Security Council, name them, for these are partners in the criminality and in preventing the nation from returning and uniting under Islam.

[…]”We have no doubt that Allah will deliver His promise and grant us the Caliphate upon the method of the Prophethood. Under its leadership, Rome will be opened [conquered], Kashmir will be liberated, India will be liberated, Palestine will be liberated, Andalusia… Sometimes we forget about Andalusia, which is known as Spain. That land was ours for 800 years and it is under occupation, such as Kashmir, such as Palestine.”

COMMENTARY: first, many aspects of multiculturalism are patent nonsense – some societies are far better than others, that is quite clear from history, success, advancements; some have remained impotent for centuries or longer – from my perspective (just one man’s opinion), ALL JIHADIS, once convicted, should be sentenced to LIFE IMPRISONMENT WITHOUT the provision of PAROLE, ever, until they die – if necessary, new prisons should be built with suitable facilities which deny them almost any freedom of movement such as Pelican Bay in N. California providing solitary confinement for each and every one of them – frankly, who in the world would ever be so delusional to let them out only to see them wreak more havoc on another group or individual they would attack – this is simply SAFETY for SOCIETY

Why Now? Islam’s Rise Explained

Posted: 03 Mar 2020

The question has been in the back of my mind for awhile. Why now? Why is militant Islam rising now? What has changed? Is it because western powers, in their colonizing days, had divided and conquered the Middle East, and for decades kept them weak? Is it because after defeating the U.S.S.R. in Afghanistan they have a newfound confidence? Is it because they learned something (from the CIA perhaps) during that conflict about training soldiers that they’re now using in service of jihad?

I have been wondering how Muslims have changed or how their conditions have changed. But something else now seems more likely: The West has changed.

The change has been good in so many ways. But it has weakened our ability to protect ourselves against militant Islam.

Islam has been through two previous jihads. During the first one, Islam conquered much of western Europe, coming up through Spain and making it to the middle of France before they were stopped. In another wave of conquest, they came in through eastern Europe and made it to Austria before they were stopped at the walls of Vienna. They receded in power from that point on. Europe had united against them under the banner of Christianity.

But religious fervor has declined in the West. I personally think that’s a good thing. But what uniting force has replaced it?

The bad news is the thing that replaced religious fervor has made the West less capable of defending itself. It is as if we have removed a form of immunity we once had.

Religious belief has been replaced by a belief in multiculturalism, which by itself (and generally speaking) is also a good thing. The passionate belief in everyone’s right to believe what they want, and the belief that every culture is unique and special and worthy — these have replaced Christian dogmatism in the West.

A widespread belief in multiculturalism is great, but will it help us protect ourselves from invasion? Will it help us unite against a common foe?

Multiculturalism has become almost a religion and is very widespread throughout western countries. It is one of the reasons different cultures have been able to live together in relative peace in democratic countries.

This tremendous spread of tolerance is wonderful. But it has been allowing Islam to rise relatively unimpeded. After all, militant Muslims have a right to believe what they want, right? No culture is better than any other, and it is arrogant and old-fashioned to say otherwise, right? That means no religion is worse than any other. Everyone has the right to believe and preach what they want, even if it is jihad, even in downtown London and New York City. Muslim leaders have openly exhorted their followers to overthrow the government — something that in any other context would be treason and sedition.

In other words, no matter how passionate we may be about multiculturalism or how many of us are united about its rightness, it won’t help us defend ourselves.

What could help us defend ourselves? That’s the questionWhat is worth defending? If we can’t figure that out, the orthodox Muslims will win. Commitment always beats half-heartedness. Absolute commitment crushes it easily.

What are we westerners absolutely committed to? What is worth fighting for and even dying for?

I believe the answer is freedom.

In fact, one of the reasons people have come to respect and value multiculturalism is that it helps us live in freedom. It helps people of different ethnic and religious backgrounds to live together without harassment and in relative peace.

People in the West value freedom, and they value it enough to defend it — conservatives and liberals and everywhere in between. We believe in freedom of speech, freedom to worship (or not) as we wish. We believe in the power to vote for both women and men, and the freedom to think and read whatever we want.

Orthodox Islam is passionately anti-freedom.

None of the rights above are allowed in an Islamic state, and make no mistake, an Islamic state is what orthodox Muslims are after. They want to make western countries into Islamic states, and you may be surprised to discover, they are already doing it.

This is a war. Freedom against slavery. Am I overstating my case? Not even close. When you live in an Islamic state ruled by Sharia law, you have to pray 5 times a day. Women have to be accompanied by a male relative wherever they go, and they cannot get a job. They have no voice, they have no rights. Men are slaves to the Islamic state, and women are the mens’ slaves. (Read first-hand accounts of what it is like in an Islamic state.)

You probably know all this already. But many people, in their passionate commitment to multiculturalism, refuse to entertain the idea. Try talking about the nature of militant Islam in polite company, and most people will gasp as if you had blasphemed, and they will passionately defend Islam, even if they know nothing about it. This is multicultural tolerance working to defend the right of everyone to believe as they wish. If it wasn’t so dangerous in the long run, even a blind commitment to multiculturalism would be beautiful in its own way.

But if orthodox Muslims gain more power, recruits, and technology, militant Islam will become harder and harder to ignore, and the situation will become increasingly serious.

We the people of the West, people who live in liberal democracies, will need to unify to preserve our liberties. We will need a powerful unifying belief we can passionately defend. When that time comes, remember: One possible answer is freedom.
The Cube of Mecca and How it Got That Way

Posted: 28 Feb 2020

The following was written by F.W. Burleigh, author of It’s All About Muhammad, A Biography of the World’s Most Notorious Prophet

In the beginning of the world, there was the Kabah — at least, if you believe what Muslims are indoctrinated into believing about the draped temple of Mecca that is orbited by masses of people every year during the pilgrimage season.

The story goes it was a jewel sent down to the world by Allah from his throne far above the seventh of the seven heavens. Adam, the first man, built the Kabah as the first temple of worship of Allah, but it was destroyed in the great flood that Allah inflicted on the world for disobedience to his will. It was rebuilt by Abraham and Ishmael, and Ishmael fathered a line of Arabs that led finally to Muhammad. But by Muhammad’s time, the temple had fallen into the wrong hands, into the hands of idolaters who worshiped other gods than Allah.

Muhammad, as hero of this narrative that he crafted about himself, was commissioned by Allah to rescue the temple from idolatry and restore the one-God worship of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, and other heroes of Biblical fame.

Muhammad had a way of inserting himself into other people’s religious narratives, a compulsion derived from his many psychological disorders, not the least of which was grandiosity. He was like Woody Allen in Zelig where he grafts himself into historical footage showing himself on stage with Adolph Hitler — except that Muhammad was notoriously unfunny. In his unfunny way he grafted himself onto the line of Jewish prophets; he put himself on stage with the heroes of Jewish legends and proclaimed himself to be the best of them all, the last and final prophet before the Day of Doom, superior to all the other prophets, even Jesus. Muhammad included Jesus in the prophet lineup, but he had to demote Jesus to being merely a man, for if he acknowledged Jesus as divine, he, Muhammad, would have had less importance.

The truth about the Meccan temple is yawningly prosaic. It was a moon temple built by the early nomadic Arabs of the valley of Mecca, descendants of Yemeni emigrants who worshiped the moon, the sun, and other celestial objects. A couple of hundred years before Muhammad, the temple was an enclosure whose walls of stacked rocks were so low that goats could jump over them. In one corner, atop a pillar of rocks, was the Black Stone meteorite the desert Arabs had discovered and believed to be a gift of the moon god.

Kabah is a nickname. It means cube in Arabic, and the temple of Mecca did not acquire its cubic shape until the year A.D. 605 when Muhammad was 35 years old. Until then, it had remained a stone enclosure without a roof, though its walls had been built up higher than in previous centuries — above a man’s height and having a door. The statue of the moon god Hubal was on a pedestal in the interior. Polytheists from all over Arabia made a visit to the moon shrine during their pilgrimage.

It is in the Muslim records that Muhammad was part of the construction crew that used salvaged wood from a shipwreck to rebuild the temple and give it a roof. The temple had been damaged in a flash flood and needed to be replaced. It was Muhammad’s job to carry rocks from nearby hills on his shoulder. The evidence of the literature is that during the construction he suffered an epileptic fit. This came about after his uncles and others pestered him to remove his clothes like everyone else did, and use them as a cushion to protect his shoulder while carrying rocks, but when he removed his garments he fell to the ground in a seizure. Epilepsy is central to the Muhammad story because the neurological explosions of his malformed temporal lobe gave him ecstatic experiences that eventually convinced him he was in communion with God and that God had selected him as a prophet.

Once the temple attained its final form, then and only then did it become known as “The Cube.” It sported a semicircular stone platform on one side that served as a meeting site for the town notables and as a stage for orators when crowds gathered on important occasions.

When Muhammad conquered Mecca, he took over the Cube and made it central to the worship of his peculiar God concept, an idea that reflected his own psyche, particularly his stunning capacity for hatred and thirst for vengeance. His followers no longer orbited the moon shrine in imitation of celestial objects, but in worship of Muhammad’s God concept.

It is the practice that Muslims — Submitters to Muhammad’s God concept — blindly continue today.

Political Islam: Its Threat & The Solution To It With Dr. Bill Warner

WRITTEN BY: TIM BROWN. PUBLISHED ON: FEBRUARY 27, 2020 

Political Islam has subjugated other civilizations for 1400 years. It is a dangerous and quite deadly ideology and movement. It is a threat to people everywhere, not just in the West. However, many fail to see it for what it is and worse yet, they really don’t know how to defeat it. Political Islam will not be defeated with bullets, bombs and tanks. It will only be defeated with a superior Gospel. Dr. Bill Warner from PoliticalIslam.com joins me for this episode to discuss this issue.

Female Genital Mutilation: Science vs Islam

FEBRUARY 28, 2020 BY BARENAKEDISLAM

In a debate about the barbaric Islamic practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Egypt, what happens when a fundamentalist Muslim male is challenged by a female OB-GYN specialist?

A Salafist so-called “scholar,” Sheikh Sameh Abd Al-Hamid, tries to argue that female circumcision is just like male circumcision – it makes intercourse more pleasurable for women, and it facilitates good hygiene. OB-GYN specialist Dr. Randa Fakhr Al-Din responds that the FGM procedure causes women extreme pain during sexual intercourse, preventing women from deriving any kind of pleasure. It’s obvious that the misogynist “scholar” isn’t buying any of it.

The history of non-aggression pacts in Islam

Does it matter that Muslim Arabs cannot sign a true peace agreement with Israel? Not as long as Israel recognizes it must remain militarily strong and resolute in defending its culture and borders.

Harold Rhode Feb 16 2020

The news media is filled with reports that the Arab world—most notably Saudi Arabia and countries in the Persian Gulf, might be prepared to sign a non-aggression pact/truce with Israel. What does this mean, however, from a Muslim perspective?

For countries with strong institutions, agreements are not made between leaders. Meaning that such agreements continue to be valid even if the countries’ governments change. This is not the case in the Middle East, where with the possible exception of Turkey, agreements are made between leaders, and last as long as those leaders are still in power.

Middle Eastern states are by their very nature authoritarian, even if they appear to have the trappings of democracy—like parliaments, government ministers, etc. If a leader dies or is overthrown, all bets are off. The new leader decides which agreements he will honor.

In essence, in these authoritarian states institutions are by their nature weak, because they are loyal and respond to the leader—not to the people. Regarding Middle Eastern leaders, the late professor Bernard Lewis used to say “the state is their estate.” Meaning that they understand their countries to be their fiefdoms, where they can do pretty much what they want.

In summary, in democratic societies, a “government official” means a person who represents the people vis-à-vis the government. The people empower their governments.

In the Middle East, the Arabic/Turkish/Persian word for government official/bureaucrat is “maamur” or “mu’azif“—which mean “one who is commanded.” But commanded by whom? Answer: Middle Eastern government officials don’t work for the people, they work for and represent the rulers—i.e., a top-down structure.

In Islam, peace as we know it in the West, i.e., letting bygones be bygones, cannot exist between Muslims and non-Muslims. According to both the Koran and the Shari’a, there can however be a temporary agreement, i.e., a truce or armistice. Such a truce is called a “sulha” or “hudna.” These agreements are modeled after the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah, a 628 CE treaty between the Islamic prophet Mohammad and the Quraysh tribe of Mecca, who Mohammad was unable to defeat.

The agreement was to last 10 years, but after only two—when Mohammad had managed to rearm himself sufficiently—he reneged on the agreement, attacked his enemies, and defeated them.

This sulha/hudna agreement is the type of non-aggression pact the Saudis and other Arab Muslim nations seem to be willing to sign with Israel. It is now in their interest to do so because their existential enemy is Iran, an enemy which they share with Israel.

Any agreement they sign with the Israelis must be understood in these terms. These are not peace agreements; they remain in force only as long as the leaders of these Arab countries believe it in their interest.

What would happen, for example, if the Iranian regime collapsed and the new government in Iran no longer threatened the Sunni Arab regimes? Would Israel and these Arab countries still share common interests? Would these agreements still hold? Can Muslim leaders recognize Israel as a Jewish state with the right to live within borders on land once conquered by Muslims?

What does history teach us here?

1. At the 1949 Rhodes conference after Israel’s 1948 War of Independence, the Arabs insisted on calling their treaties with Israel “armistice agreements”—not peace agreements. They further insisted that the lines drawn on the map which divided Israeli-controlled territory from territory controlled by the Arabs be defined as “armistice lines”—not borders. Borders and peace agreements imply permanence and an end to war; the Arabs could not agree to either. From a Muslim-Arab perspective, all of pre-1948 Palestine was Muslim land. Thus, they could not agree to permanent borders or peace.

PLO leader Yasser Arafat, two weeks after he signed the Oslo agreements with Israel, was in South Africa speaking to Muslims. He was recorded telling them that the agreement he signed with Israel was like the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah their prophet had signed with his enemies the Quraysh. Everyone understood the reference and the meaning—Arafat would break the agreement as soon as it became possible to do so.

2. Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, upon returning to Egypt after signing an agreement with the Israelis on the White House lawn, told his people he had done what he did for the good of Egypt. Egypt needed its resources to build itself up, and must not waste them on battles Egypt was certain to lose, he said. Sadat ended his speech by saying: what will happen in the future will happen in the future—meaning, this was a temporary agreement until Egypt could regroup—which could last as long as needed. Even so, some in Egypt saw this as treachery, which is why they assassinated him.

3. In 2000, President Bill Clinton hosted then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Arafat at a Camp David. The stated goal going into the summit was to come to an agreement which would end the Arab-Israeli conflict. Barak offered Arafat almost every square inch of eastern Jerusalem and the West Bank if Arafat would sign a peace agreement with Israel. Arafat instantly rejected Barak’s offer, saying “that he [Arafat] would not have tea with Sadat.” Arafat knew that if he signed such an agreement, he too would be labeled a “traitor” and likely assassinated.

There are no permanent agreements between Muslims and non-Muslims, and certainly not over land that Muslims believe is theirs.

So, what does the above tell us about any possible non-aggression pacts between Israel and Arab countries? The Arab countries in question are all ruled by Sunni Muslims. All are authoritarian. All are in the same boat as the Arab leaders in the examples mentioned above. They cannot agree to permanent peace with Israel. Almost all Muslim scholars agree that once a territory is conquered by Muslims, it must remain under Muslim rule forever. Non-Muslims—i.e., Christians, Jews and others who received a revelation from God prior to Islam can live under Islamic rule, but do not have the right to rule any territory that has ever been conquered by Muslims.

Today’s Israel was conquered by Muslims in 637-38 CE, and thus according to Islam must be ruled by Muslims forever. The Saudis, Morocco and any other Arab Muslim countries therefore cannot sign permanent peace agreements with Israel. Neither, for that matter, can Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas. Hamas’s charter explicitly calls all of pre-1948 Mandatory Palestine a Muslim waqf—which means it belongs to Allah forever.

No Muslim can recognize Israel’s permanent right to exist because it is a Jewish state, ruled by Jews, which contradicts Islam. Any Muslim that recognized Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state on Muslim land would be labeled a “traitor” and suffer the same fate as Sadat. So the best we could hope for is a temporary non-aggression pact between Israel and its Muslim neighbors.

Does it matter that the Muslim Arabs cannot sign a true peace agreement with Israel? As long as Israel recognizes that it must remain militarily strong and resolute in defending its culture and borders, it should be fine. Non-aggression pacts or peace treaties notwithstanding, as long as the Muslims realize that Israel is here to stay and will defend itself at whatever cost, non-aggression pacts or truces will be fine. But no one should delude himself into believing that any agreement between the Arabs and Israel will ever be like the peaceful relationship between, say, the United States and Canada. That could only happen if there is a thought revolution in Islam, something that seems unlikely for foreseeable future.v

Fatuous Fanatics

by Sam Westrop. February 19, 2020

We have published quite a bit in recent months about the changing face of American Islam. As David Swindle points out in his recent Islamist Watch article on Islamic seminaries, a new network of Islamist clerics, who have managed to put aside powerful theological divisions, have been busy establishing new institutions and training the next generation of Muslim youth.

Many of these clerics, whose own teachers were known for their asceticism, now command enormous social media followings, run highly-stylized YouTube campaigns, and take Instagram ‘selfies’. And while they continue to advocate ideas as radical and dangerous as those offered by previous generations of Islamists, they have also accepted a curious infusion of progressivist ideas into their activities and rhetoric.

As we explained in an essay several months ago, these changes have alarmed extant traditionalists within American Islam, who fear that the decision by some prominent clerics to embrace sections of the Left is deeply self-destructive, and that these modernists risk convincing many young Muslims that progressivist social justice causes, based around gender and sexuality, are somehow an acceptable component of the Islamic movement.

There is, however, a third peculiar phenomenon of the new American Islamism: vacuous self-help rhetoric.

recent example comes from the leading cleric Omar Suleiman, who, on behalf of AlMaghrib Institute, is advertising a course on “Finding Your Purpose and Maximizing Your Spiritual Potential.” Suleiman and AlMaghrib officials will be joined by clerics and preachers including:

Admittedly, every religious sect, of every faith, includes preachers who offer similar hackneyed sermons. But AlMaghrib and Omar Suleiman are leaders of the modern American Salafi movement. They are the most recognizable names within American Islam, and they work with some of the most important Sunni clerics from around the world. Just a few years ago, AlMaghrib and Omar Suleiman’s lectures were more often centered around more serious theological lectures about the “evolution of fiqh [jurisprudence]” or discussions of the intricacies of sharia banking and the issue of usury.

It is important to note there is no evidence that their embrace of bromides is also an embrace of moderation. Despite all the public self-help seminars and progressivist activism, in more private settings, the extremism remains.

One of the seminar speakers, Suleiman Hani, has claimed that “freedom of speech” is a “facade of a tool” used to stifle “objective discussion” of the “Holocaust or Jews.”

As for Suleiman, in recent years, he has denounced homosexuality as a “disease” and approvingly cited the punishment for the “people that practiced sodomy.” He has warned young women, without condemnation, that if “you make yourself promiscuous or you open yourself up to a relationship,” then a “jealous Dad … kills you and he kills the guy.”

Suleiman’s other organization, the Yaqeen Institute, recently published a curriculum for private schools that manages to mix lessons about a “roadmap” for “eating and drinking mindfully” with more familiar Islamist warnings that civilizations which permit fornication will collapse amid “incest, bestiality and necrophilia.”

Meanwhile, AlMaghrib founder and head Muhammad AlShareef has written a paper titled, “Why the Jews Were Cursed,” in which he claims Jews control the media and murder prophets. The very same Alshareef is currently also spending large amounts of money on Facebook advertisements promising a “secret formula” for prayer to help Muslims “find the spouse of their dreams.” https://www.meforum.org/islamist-watch/60456/fatuous-fanatics

Mozambique: Muslims murder at least 700 people and displace over 100,000 since 2017

FEB 24, 2020  BY ROBERT SPENCER

Imagine the international outcry if the roles were reversed, which would never and should never happen. But no one will take any particular notice of this.

“Islamic terrorism spreading in majority-Christian Mozambique; 700 dead, 100,000 displaced,” by Samuel Smith, Christian Post, February 21, 2020:

Over 100,000 people have been displaced and at least 700 have died in the majority-Christian country of Mozambique since 2017, as the spread of radical Islamic extremism in Africa is starting to plague the continent’s southeast region.

This month, the U.N.’s High Commission for Refugees said it is boosting its response in Mozambique’s northeastern Cabo Delgado province, an oil-rich coastal region on the Indian Ocean.

Although southeast Africa was once considered relatively peaceful compared to its counterparts in the north, there’s concern that the region is becoming a foothold for militants that appear to be aligned with the Islamic State.

The Institute for Security Studies, an Africa-based think tank, published a report last month stating that as many as 350 terror incidents have occurred in Mozambique since the local jihadi group Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jammah simultaneously attacked police and military bases in October 2017.

However, the UNHCR warns that the most recent weeks have proved to be the most “volatile period” as attacks are now spreading across most of Cabo Delgado’s 16 districts.

Cabo Delgado is one of the least developed regions in the country. According to UNHCR spokesperson Andrej Mahecic, hundreds of villages have been burned and abandoned because of the “indiscriminate campaign of terror.”

“Armed groups have been randomly targeting local villages and terrorizing the local population,” Mahecic said at a press briefing earlier this month in Geneva, Switzerland.  “Those fleeing speak of killings, maiming, and torture, burnt homes, destroyed crops and shops.”

Mahecic explained that there have also been reports of beheadings, kidnappings, and disappearances of women and children. Mahecic said the attackers, at times, warn locals when and where they will attack, causing a mad rush of residents to flee those areas….

According to ISS consultant Peter Fabricius, the insurgency morphed into a terror campaign directed mainly at unarmed civilians after it began with attacks on the military bases.

Fabricius reported in January that the death toll when including security personal, insurgents and civilians stands at over 600 since 2017. However, the medical charity Doctors Without Borders told AFP that at least 700 have been killed….

ASWJ is known locally as “Al-Shabaab” but is not believed to have any connection with the deadly Somalia-based terror group with the same name, according to AFP.

While ASWJ has not taken public credit for the attacks, the Islamic State terror network has claimed the responsibility of over two dozen attacks, according to ISS.

Last June, the Islamic State took credit for an attack on the Mozambique military by saying that the militants were “soldiers of the caliphate.” As reported by The Guardian at the time, the Islamic State claimed that Africa is a central component to its effort to create a global network of extremists. “This raises questions about how IS and ASWJ are related,” Fabricius writes. “Is ASWJ the local affiliate of IS? Is IS simply claiming credit to boost its public stature, especially since the loss of face caused by the fall of its caliphate in Syria and Iraq?”…

Suit-Wearing Jihadis Infiltrate the White House  

Feb 21 2020

Oussama Jammal, the Secretary-General of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, has been invited on more than one occasion by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to be a guest and to attend the annual ministerial on religious freedom. He also apparently holds an official position within the U.S. Department of State. This is the leader of all the Muslim Brotherhood organizations in America.

Major Islamic Conference on Reform Upholds Radicalism

02/20/2020 by Raymond Ibrahim

Largely unknown to and unreported in the West, a large, two-day conference was recently hosted by Al Azhar University in Egypt and attendant by the leading clerics and politicians from 46 nations on January 27-28.  Titled, “Renewal in Islamic Thought,” it is currently the most significant response to Egyptian President Sisi’s calls for reform, which he forcibly made on January 1, 2015.

The conference focused on the most pressing topics affecting the Islamic—and in some cases non-Islamic—world, including women’s rights, government and society, and of course the question of “radicalization” and the emergence of jihadi terror groups such as the Islamic State, etc.

I’ve watched many of the panels with great interest, and in the coming weeks hope to remark on some of these, but for now I wish to discuss what can be learned from the closing remarks of the Grand Imam of Al Azhar (and Pope Francis’ good friend), Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb.

First, in consensual agreement with the other clerics present, he closed the door on the possibility for reform on a great number of issues: “Renewal,” he announced, “is in no way possible concerning those texts which are irrefutable in their certainty and stability; as for those texts that are not entirely credible, they are subject to ijtihad [reinterpretation, especially based on changing circumstances].

In plain language, the teachings of those Islamic texts that are deemed entirely reliable—chief among them, the Koran as well as certain hadith, including, according to mainstream Sunnism, all nine volumes of Sahih Bukhari—are not subject to any change; only those secondary Islamic texts, including many other volumes of hadith, the sira (biography of Muhammad), and other works of history, are open to debate.

The problem, of course, is that some—many—of the worst teachings plaguing the Islamic and non-Islamic worlds are derived directly from those texts deemed entirely reliable.  The Koran, for example, very clearly permits the sexual enslavement of non-Muslim women, the beating of one’s wife, and of course polygamy; the Koran calls on Muslims to have hate for and when convenient to war on non-Muslims—just because they are non-Muslims.

The resulting “strain” between trying to “renew Islamic thought,” while also not dealing with certain texts and teachings can be seen in Tayeb’s closing remarks on the question of jihad:

Jihad in Islam is not synonymous with fighting; rather, the fighting practiced by Prophet Muhammad and his companions is one of its types; and it is to ward off the aggression of the aggressors against Muslims, as opposed to killing those who offend in [matters of] religion, as the extremists claim.  The established sharia rule in Islam bans antagonism for those who oppose the religion.  Fighting them is forbidden—as long as they do not fight Muslims.

If only this were true! the world would have developed in a radically different way.  But alas, al-Tayeb’s words contradict both more than a millennium of Islamic theology—including as codified in those “unquestioned” texts—and Islamic history:

Beginning with Muhammad—whose later wars were hardly defensive but rather raids meant to empower and aggrandize himself and his followers over non-Muslims—and under the first “righteous” caliphs and virtually all subsequent sultans and rulers, jihad consisted of “inviting” neighboring non-Muslims to embrace Islam or at the very least submit themselves to its political authority (as second-class dhimmis); if non-Muslims refused, as they almost always did, if they insisted on maintaining their own religious identity and freedom from Islam, then jihad was proclaimed, the non-Muslims’ lands were invaded, and the aftermath looked like an ISIS setting, with pyramids of heads, burned churches and other temples of worship, and slave markets of women and children littering the landscape.

This went on for nearly 14 centuries.   One need only look at  a map of the Muslim world today and realize that the vast majority of it—all of the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey, Central Asia, as far east as Pakistan and further—was taken by violent conquest in the name of jihad.  Every Muslim child is taught this in elementary school; it is a source of great pride and validation.

In short, some of those texts deemed too sacrosanct for “renewal” or reinterpretation do teach problematic things; nor will renewals built on lies—such as the absurd claim that jihad was and is always defensive and for the protection of Muslims, never offensive and for the spread of Islam—ever find root and grow.

This, in a nutshell, is the problem with the much touted international conference recently hosted by Al Azhar University at the behest of President Sisi.  While lots of encouraging and progressive talk was made, regrettably much of it must by necessity be relegated to the realm of just that—talk.

Political Islam, not Religious Islam

Feb 20 2020

In order to deal with Islam intelligently, we must understand the doctrine. The common assumption is that Islam is a religion, but religion is only one part of its complete civilization which also contains a culture and its own laws. Religion is about answers to what happens after death, but we only need to understand how Islam impacts non-Muslims in this life today, mainly through its Sharia law. I call the Islam that affects the non-Muslim (Kafir) – political.

https://www.politicalislam.com/political-islam-not-religious-islam/?utm_source=Learning+Community+list&utm_campaign=1b6d5616c0-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_02_20_07_22&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b372f6361f-1b6d5616c0-82937005
Inoculating Against Islam

Posted: 19 Feb 2020

Ever since 9/11 Americans, including Christians, have been converting to Islam or become apologists for Islam. Can this be stopped and how?

There are many reasons they choose Islam. Islam is furiously masculine and today Christianity has become feminine, yin, in its approach to life. So, if you are a woman and want a more masculine man, you are much more apt to find that in Islam. Also, if you are a woman and want a husband, Muslims are the marrying kind. Then, there are people in this world who want discipline and Islam certainly gives structure. Once you get on the Islam train you no longer have to worry about choices. Islam tells you how to eat, have sex, brush your teeth, use the bathroom and every other aspect of life. There is also the social bonding of being in a tight knit group-club. These are a few of the reasons people convert.

Preventing conversion is easy to accomplish by inoculating anyone with what Islam really is. One reason that Kafirs (non-Muslims) convert is that they do not know the complete Islam. They are only told about the first stage of Islam – loving what Allah loves. Converts are never told that the final stage is to hate what Allah hates. Allah hates the Kafir and Kafir civilization, such as free speech and equal rights. The convert has been exposed to the “good stuff,” but does not know the full doctrine of a dualistic Islam. The other side of the “good stuff” is darkness such as jihad, abuse of women and slavery.

The problem is that we have all been told that we cannot understand Islam and that Islam is found in the Koran. We are told that it is way too complex and subtle. The only way to know Islam is to ask a Muslim or an establishment “expert”. This is absolute garbage. Islam is Allah and Mohammed, pure and simple. To know Islam, know Allah and Mohammed. Allah is hard to understand, at first, but there is an easy shortcut. The Koran tells us that Mohammed is the perfect pattern of life for all Muslims and that every Muslim should imitate Mohammed. His life example is so important that it has a special name, the Sunna.

If you count up all the words in the Koran and the words devoted to Mohammed, there is about six times more text devoted to Mohammed than to Allah. Mohammed solves the problem of how to know the true nature of Islam.

Everybody knows someone who has tried to read the Koran and never finished it. Islam seems like a tropical jungle, deep and complex. But that is not true, since Islam is both Allah and Mohammed.

Allah may be hard to understand, but anybody can understand Mohammed. The reason is simple. We have his official biography (called the Sira) and it is a fascinating, ripping read. After Mohammed is born he soon becomes an orphan. He married and became a successful businessman, then a prophet of Allah. He preached Islam for 13 years and converted 150 Muslims. Next he became a politician and jihadist for his last 10 years. When he died every Arab in Arabia was a Muslim. The Sira has religion, plots, spies, war, torture, secret agents, slavery, sex, jealousy and more. It is one of the world’s great stories.

Anyone, and I mean anyone, can understand the story of a man’s life. Mohammed is the perfect Muslim. When you understand Mohammed, you can easily understand the Koran and you can understand Islam.

This is how easy it is to know Mohammed. The original Sira is 800 pages long and difficult to read. But the book has been made easy to understand in a very short book of only 66 pages, called The Life of Mohammed. Everything is keyed by a small index number at the beginning of the paragraphs that lets you go the official text and confirm it. It is fact-based and is as true as it can be and is a short powerful book.

I ran an experiment. I paid $20 to a smart 12 year-old child to read The Life of Mohammed. After she read it, I had her read the Gospel of Matthew. It is important to know that she had never been to church or read the Bible. I then asked if she had to have new neighbor would she want it to be Jesus or Mohammed? She said she wanted Jesus and then justified her answer by using the facts from Matthew and The Life of Mohammed. She used fact-based reasoning.

That is the way you inoculate against Islam. Full knowledge of Mohammed causes anyone of reasonable morals to avoid him and Islam. Once you know how much suffering Mohammed caused to every neighbor, you do not want to follow him. So, to prevent a case of conversion to Islam, prescribe a dose of Mohammed.

The news is even better since a dose of the Sira can cure a Muslim of Islam. It works like this – most Muslims know almost nothing about Islam. If you know the full story of Mohammed, you know Islam and can tell a Muslim things about Mohammed that will unsettle them. Upon the first administration of Mohammed to a Muslim, they will deny the truth of it. But you can offer to show it to them in the Sira, the Sunna of Mohammed. Repeated dosage can cure Islam.

To inoculate against Islam, use a dose of Mohammed. To cure Islam, do the same. Don’t forget, a dose of Mohammed is so interesting that you will want to take some as well.

Grand Mufti of Jerusalem: Anyone who cooperates with Trump peace deal is betraying Allah and Muhammad

FEB 19, 2020 BY ROBERT SPENCER

There is an old-fashioned expression of amazement, “You don’t mean it!” And that’s exactly what establishment foreign policy analysts say every time a supporter of the “Palestinian” jihad tells us that it is all about Islam. Get the real story in The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process.

PA: Rejecting Trump’s plan is a religious obligation; You ‘betray Allah’ if you cooperate with the ‘deal of the century,’” by Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, February 14, 2020:

The Grand Mufti of the Palestinian Authority Muhammad Hussein has ruled that Palestinians are forbidden to cooperate in any way with US President Trump’s peace plan, the so-called “deal of the century.” Anyone cooperating with the plan is “betraying Allah,” and those who support it “deserve to be cursed by Allah, his angels, and all people”:

[PA] Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories Muhammad Hussein published a religious ruling that forbids cooperating with the ‘deal of the century’ and those promoting it, as its goal in general is to eliminate the Palestinian cause forever. The mufti said in a statement yesterday [Feb. 11, 2020] that anyone who cooperates with the deal is betraying Allah, His Messenger [Muhammad], the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem, and Palestine… those who are planning this unjust aggressiveness, or willingly supporting or being silent about it, deserve to be cursed by Allah, his angels, and all people.” [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 12, 2020]

The ruling echoes the statement of Mahmoud Al-Habbash, the PA’s Supreme Shari’ah Judge and Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari’ah Justice who before the revelation of Trump’s deal threatened that whoever accepts the plan “will pay the price of treason,” as Palestinian Media Watch documented.

Abbas’ Fatah addressed Trump directly in a video, threatening that they will “declare a war that only Allah can extinguish” if Trump continues with his peace plan. Fatah has also encouraged violence, telling Palestinians to defend “Palestine” with “blood and soul” to make sure the deal “does not pass.”

The following is a longer excerpt of the report on the mufti’s fatwa:

Headline: “The [PA] grand mufti forbids cooperating with the deal of the century and those who are promoting it”

[PA] Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories Muhammad Hussein published a religious ruling that forbids cooperating with the ‘deal of the century’ (i.e., US President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan; see note below) and those promoting it, as its goal in general is to eliminate the Palestinian cause forever.

The mufti said in a statement yesterday [Feb. 11, 2020] that anyone who cooperates with the deal is betraying Allah, His Messenger [Muhammad], the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem, and Palestine. He added that ‘the deal of the century’ steals Jerusalem from its legal owners, denies the Muslims their third [holiest] mosque, their first direction of prayer, and the place to which their Prophet, peace be upon him, travelled, and also does away with the refugees’ right and delegitimizes the demand of a people that was forcefully uprooted from its land to receive its legitimate rights.

He noted that the deal is meant to cancel the right of our people to live on its land in dignity, strengthens the thieving oppressor, supports it, and aggressively and unfairly grants it most of the Palestinian land that is scented with the Martyrs’ pure blood… which confirms that those who are planning this unjust aggressiveness, or willingly supporting or being silent about it, deserve to be cursed by Allah, his angels, and all people.”

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 12, 2020] Muhammad Hussein also holds the positions of preacher at the Al-Aqsa Mosque Palestinian Supreme Fatwa Council Chairman, and Deputy Secretary-General and acting Secretary-General of the PLO Popular National Conference of Jerusalem….

Kadim Hussain Rizvi must be some kind of an Islamophobe. How dare this Islamophobe contradict that most learned of imams, Pope Francis, who has wisely told us that “authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence.”

But seriously, Rizvi is on solid Qur’anic ground.

O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them.” (9:73) “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him are harsh against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves.” (48:29)

American Muslims for Palestine Convention Dominated by Conspiracy Theories and Antisemitism Behind Closed Doors 

Hesham Shehab | December 20 2019

This article originally appeared in the Illinois Review under the title, “Linda Sarsour and Others Push Anti-semitism, Conspiracy Theories at Chicago Palestinian Convention.“ The former “Women’s March” leader who once called for a “jihad” against Donald Trump is back in the news, following leaked video of her diatribe against Israel as a “Jewish Supremacist” state. Linda Sarsour, the Palestinian American […]

The former “Women’s March” leader who once called for a “jihad” against Donald Trump is back in the news, following leaked video of her diatribe against Israel as a “Jewish Supremacist” state. Linda Sarsour, the Palestinian American activist and Bernie Sanders campaign surrogate claimed that “Israel was built on the idea that Jews are supreme to everybody else.” Sarsour was speaking before a crowd at the annual Palestine Convention of the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), held in Chicago over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Nor was Sarsour the only anti-Semitic speaker. Rather the entire event was dominated by Anti-Semitic diatribes, conspiracy theories, and distortions of Israeli history, all taking place while AMP security aggressively denied access to anyone attempting to accurately report on what was said.

Joining Sarsour at the AMP convention was Nihad Awad, co-founder of Council on the American and Islamic Relations (CAIR) spoke about a Western conspiracy where the “transnational Zionist movement” and neoconservatives use Islamophobia as a “funnel” to “spread misinformation,” and propaganda, using “sophisticated networks.”

According to audio of the Awad’s presentation, captured by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Awad claimed “For me, at CAIR, as the executive director of CAIR, the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, we deal with racism, Islamophobia and Zionism on [a] daily basis.”

Awad has led CAIR since its founding in 1994 at a meeting of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee in Philadelphia. According to evidence submitted by the U.S. Government at trial, CAIR leaders were linked to Hamas.

While CAIR claims that it is an advocacy and civil rights organization, the IPT article puts it differently: “The conspiracy was to support Hamas in its efforts to destroy Israel. In saying CAIR deals with Zionism daily, Awad puts that assertion in a new light.

Other speakers at the AMP conference painted the Israeli-Arab struggle in a religious dimension, which polarizes Arabs and Muslims against Israel and Jews.

Sheikh Aly Hassan, the imam of Muslim Educational Cultural Center of America (MECCA) near Chicago told audiences: “Jerusalem is the station of Israa and Miraj [Muhammad’s night journey to Heaven], and the place where hundreds of prophets are buried. It’s a place where angels descended, and Al Aqsa (Al Aqsa Mosque) is the only place where all prophets prayed,” adding: “Palestine is a theology that we need to talk about and teach to our children, to Arab and non-Arab Muslims (…).”

As previously reported in the American Thinker, the MECCA mosque says its goals are “to guide young Muslims” and “build bridges of understanding with other cultures and faiths,” yet displays  “a willingness to promote hate preachers and anti-Semitic demagogues…” Several leaders affiliated with the mosque have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Also, on the topic of Islamization of Jerusalem, Dr. Abdullah Maarouf, a Palestinian professor with a history of antisemitism spoke extensively at the convention. In a follow up interview for Facebook by Sheikh Kifah Mustaphawho was linked to the Holy Land Foundation effort to support Hamas and known for extremist positions, asked Marouf to “enlighten” the young Muslim generations with his Islamist “insights.”

Maarouf tells Mustafa that, according to Islamic tradition, Solomon was not the first “prophet” to designate the Temple Mount as a place of worship; but “the first was Adam.”  The Palestinian professor emphasized that Adam had built the Kaaba (in Mecca), then built al Masjid al Aqsa, thousands of years before Solomon.

Marouf concludes that the [Islamic historical] narrative is “linked to religious rights” and that “the place does not legitimately belong to the power that occupies Palestine today.”

Mustapha commends Maarouf for his insights and asks him to provide audio-visual resources on that topic to the young Muslim generations who do not know anything about the history of Jerusalem, except what they learn in Western schools and colleges.

Such views deliberately shift the Israeli- Arab struggle from a political issue to an existential struggle that cannot be solved unless Israel is annihilated.

Ironically, while happy to post such positions on social media in Arabic, AMP seeks to tightly regulate what is reported about them in English, unsurprising given the tendency of AMP’s conventions to devolve into obscure Islamist theorizing and antisemitic screeds. AMP routinely seek to deny access to reporters and researchers who do not subscribe to their ideology.

Samantha Mandeles, researcher and reporter for Legal Insurrection was escorted out and harassed by AMP security guards at this year’s AMP convention. Last year, Salah Sarsour, AMP’’s chairman with a history of Hamas ties personally removed this author from the conference after recognizing him as a writer on Islamist issues.This glimpse of the Anti-Semitic discourse, conspiracy theories, claims of victimhood, identity culture, the distorted Islamization of Jerusalem’s history, and the promotion of un-American values show how detrimental AMP and its ilk are to an American Muslim community seeking to integrate into the larger American landscape. Given their efforts to avoid objective reporting, its clear that the Islamists recognize how discrediting their efforts to stoke hate and perpetuate bitterness appear in the eyes of every day Americans. That’s why it remains more important than effort to expose these hate rallies wherever they take place.

COMMENTARY: Islam’s god and his prophet demand obedience and get it from a substantial part of the Muslim population – while many in modern Western countries are nominal or even secular in their beliefs, the true danger lies with those who practice Islam as it was detailed in its earliest dogma, the so-called Holy Trilogy (Koran / Quran. Hadith, and Sunna) – for these people, they are commanded to regain the Caliphate and to subsequently conquer the world – infidels / kafirs are to burn in the flames of Hell forever

From Cradle To Jihadi

September 5, 2019 Amil Imani

It is foolish to underestimate the dangers of Islamic mental manipulation. All Muslims share an Islamic cognitive repertoire with considerable variations…

It goes without saying that every child that arrives into this world is a helpless infant at the mercy of others, not only to be fed, cleaned and protected, but also to be informed about the bewildering life we face. The caretakers, parents and immediate family can teach the newborn only what they know and believe themselves which was handed down to them by the adults that raised them.

The development of a newborn in any family is importantly influenced by many factors, among them how hands-on the parents are; how religious they are, how severely they micromanage him in an attempt to make him not only a good person but also a person better than they themselves are.

Islam, from its inception, discovered the crucial secret of getting to the young mind early by adhering to the dictum: Instruction in early childhood is akin to carving in rock. In the same vein goes the Jesuit saying, “Give me a child until he is seven, and I will give you the man,” derived from the philosophy and theology of Saint Augustine. The immense importance of getting early to the young mind is also emphasized by non-religious doctrines as diverse as the Freudian psychoanalytic theory and Watsonian Behavioral psychology.

It is thus that millions of infants annually end up in the care of people who themselves are imbued with a pathological Islamist belief system rooted in the mores and practices of the primitives of the Arabian Peninsula.

From very early on, the young child is indoctrinated in the belief that there is an omniscient, ever-vigilant Allah who observes everything a person does and even everything he contemplates. Nothing whatsoever escapes this omnipresent all-knowing being. Allah keeps tabs, bestows incredibly desirous rewards if one behaves as told while dispensing unimaginably tortuous punishment if one strays.

Let me add that Islam itself is a culture of hate, rage and vengeance. The Prophet Mohammad created a brutal, hyper-masculine, barbarian, tribal warrior cult that glories in murder, mutilation, rape, genocide, terrorism, destruction and anarchy. Women, girls and all the feminine aspects of human nature are capitalized upon and subjugated. Islam is predatory, bullying, aggressively arrogant, swaggering wife-beating thuggery, which is the destroyer of all that is beautiful, spiritual, gentle, innocent and vulnerable.

The very young Muslim begins with the minute he can make some sense of the world, presents a bewildering array of mysteries, challenges, and enticements. There are questions at every step, fears, and hopes entangled with the need to survive and possibly thrive.

He is curious to know who he is? What is this world all about? What’s the purpose? What is he supposed to do and how? Where is he headed? People die. Where do they go? And on and on. The information booths available to him in the fairground of life provide him with answers that may help relieve his innate existential anxiety. And it is here that the Islamic religion plays its critical role and holds great appeal. Muhammad’s religion provides a surefire answer to those who are willing to take it on faith.

And Islam is a powerful magnet for the masses that are unable to deal with the uncertainties of life and death on their own. It is from this population, many already thoroughly indoctrinated from birth that most diehard jihadists emerge.

And these are precisely the kind of people, Western countries, including the United States have brought them from the 7th century to the 21st century America and settled them across the land without any consideration for the safety and security of the American people. What did they expect was going to happen once they rejected the West and declared Jihad against all infidels? In no time at all, America, the greatest superpower on the planet, slowly loses its own power from within to these future jihadists and out of fear of the racist label, they too, look the other way and remain silent.

According to his religion, it is the bargain the jihadist makes. He surrenders totally to the religion of surrender in exchange for blanket security. Islam gives him all the answers he really seeks for dealing with this world and promises him a most lush and eternal paradise of Allah once he leaves it. And leaving this world in perfect submission as the foot soldier of the paradise’s creator gives the faithful unimaginably glorious sensual eternal reward in his next life. It’s a bargain that some buy in whole, some in part, some refuse and seek other means of dealing with their questions and the unrelenting existential anxiety.

It is foolish to underestimate the dangers of Islamic mental manipulation. All Muslims share an Islamic cognitive repertoire with considerable variations. As is the case with any population distribution, a great majority forms the middle while minorities populate the extremes. Islamic apologists and many Muslims point to the middle as true Islam, thereby disassociating themselves from the two extremes and may even denounce them as not being Muslims.

At one extreme are the nominal Muslims. These Muslims adhere loosely to the Islamic precepts and practices which ordinarily pose little threat to non-Muslims, and may even reject some aspects of the religion.

At the other extreme are the diehard fanatical jihadists who present severe threats not only to non-Muslims but also to the so-called Moderate Muslims (Muslims in name only) as well as the nominal Muslims.

To this extremist group, nothing is out of bounds in furthering its cause. Dissimulation, deception, and all manner of violence are their Quran-sanctioned tools. As part of their scheme, this malevolent group has adopted highly effective strategies for subjugating the West, its people and its culture.  In keeping with their supremacist racist cult, their god, Allah is proclaimed as the greatest god—Allah-o-Akbar. Yet, in English, one hears only the deceptive translation—God is great, and not the actual Arabic—Allah is the greatest.

History documents the pivotal role of small groups, even individuals, in precipitating monumentally important events. It is the energized dedicated militant minority that often sparks movements and directs the course of human events. And it is the minority of Muslims, militant and highly motivated soldiers of Allah, who are on the march to defeat the non-believing world and establish the Islamic Caliphate.

COMMENTARY: no surprise here as Islam is accommodated and appeased in many areas with rights never granted to other real religions, Islam being a political ideology with some religious aspects – this is culturally wrong, even obscene, on many levels but academia bends to Islam’s will at every opportunity – this is a major FAILURE!

MANDATORY TEACHER TRAINING DENIGRATES CHRISTIANITY, EXALTS ISLAM

Christian scriptures described as “corrupted” while the Koran contains the “pure” word of God. 

August 30, 2019  Sara Dogan

A Freedom of Information Act request filed by the Thomas More Law Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan revealed deeply concerning information on a mandatory two-day teacher training session on Islam conducted for public school teachers in the state which denigrated Christianity while presenting Islam in an exclusively positive light.

“We found that the teachers were subjected to two days of Islamic propaganda, where Islam was glorified, Christianity disparaged, and America bashed—all funded by Novi taxpayers,” explained Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel at the Thomas More Law Center. He noted that the school district had not sponsored teacher trainings on Christianity, Judaism, or other religions over the past five years, but solely on Islam.

The “cultural competency” expert hired by the Novi Community Schools District in Michigan is Huda Essa of Culture Links LLC, a hijab-wearing woman of Arab descent. After examining numerous documents relating to Essa’s presentation including audio transcripts from her talk, the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) found that “information on Islam she provided to Novi teachers was riddled with falsehoods and errors of omission that were clearly meant to deceive.”

During the two-day training session, Essa “spent a great deal of time in her Novi presentation talking about Muslim women, whom she described as victims of Islamophobia on the part of bigoted Americans,” explains a press release from the TMLC. She described cases where hijab-wearing Muslim women have been attacked or killed for their religious dress but provided no details on when or where these attacks occurred. As the Thomas More Law Center pointed out in its release, “anti-Muslim attacks are relatively rare in America and actually fell by 17 percent in 2017” while “Anti-Jewish hate crimes that year out-numbered anti-Muslim offenses by nearly four to one.”

Essa also claimed that mistreatment of women in Islamic countries is due only to “cultural” differences, and not to the Islamic religion itself, which in fact dictates radically different rules for men and women.

Her presentation repeatedly portrayed Christianity in a negative light, claiming that the Christian scriptures were “corrupted” over time whereas the Koran contains the true and “pure” word of God. Claiming that Christianity and Islam are “mostly similar,” she also asserted that Islam is in fact the world’s “only purely monotheistic religion.”
 
Teachers attending the training session were taught to believe in a whitewashed version of Islam. Essa told those in attendance that the word “Islam” is a variation on the Arabic word “salaam” which means peace. As the TMLC points out, Islam is more accurately translated as “submission,” since Muslims must submit to Allah and Sharia law before all other authorities. She also described the phrase “Allahu Abkar” as a refrain used to convey strong emotions; she did not mention that this same phrase is used as a battle-cry by Islamic terrorists conducting attacks.
 
The problematic presentation on Islam was not limited to one Michigan school district. Essa’s website lists nine separate school districts in Michigan as clients and also public schools, colleges and professional organizations in numerous other states including California, Texas, Georgia, and Florida. For the two-day presentation for the Novi Community Schools District, Essa’s organization was paid $5,000. The Freedom of Information Act requests filed by the TMLC further revealed that the district did not fully vet Essa before allowing her to conduct the mandatory training, nor did they conduct a factual analysis of her claims. In spite of the school district’s limited screening process, Essa was given access to data from student and faculty surveys.

This type of infiltration amounts to an Islamic Trojan horse within our public-school systems,” Thompson of the Thomas More Law Center said. “No other religion gets this kind of special treatment in our schools.”

COMMENTARY: The West and its politicians, academics, and MSM have deliberately FAILED to research Islam, its dogma, its goals, its history, and its implications across the spectrum of modern life. It is not a religion in the contemporary sense of the word; rather it is a political ideology with some religious aspects. It presents the greatest threat to Western civilization, with some 2.2 BILLION adherents, of whom approx. 10-15 percent are considered ‘extremists’, following the explicit words of its prophet and seeking to convert/reconvert, subjugate, and kill infidels (specifically, Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhits, followers of Zoroaster, and pagans, as well as certain Muslims) until Islam dominates the world. You can certainly challenge our words by examining the so-called ‘Holy Trilogy’ (the Koran/Quran, the Hadith, and the Sunna). If you do so, you will find that our words are on target as to what these books themselves state. The bottom line? Be afraid, very afraid, as they say what they mean and mean what they say.

ISLAM: THE WEST’S “MOST FORMIDABLE AND PERSISTENT ENEMY”

Exposing ugly truths that have long been suppressed in the West. 

September 2, 2019  Raymond Ibrahim

At the height of Western dominance over Islam in the early twentieth century, the European historian Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953) made a remarkably prescient observation that may have seemed exaggerated at the time:

Millions of modern people of the white civilization—that is, the civilization of Europe and America—have forgotten all about Islam. They have never come in contact with it. They take for granted that it is decaying, and that, anyway, it is just a foreign religion which will not concern them. It is, as a fact, the most formidable and persistent enemy which our civilization has had, and may at any moment become as large a menace in the future as it has been in the past (from Belloc’s The Great Heresies, 1938, emphasis added).

Anyone who doubts that Islam has been “the most formidable and persistent enemy which our civilization has had,” should familiarize themselves with Islam’s long offensive record vis-à-vis the West.   A succinct summary follows: According to Islamic history, in 628, the Arabian founder of Islam, Muhammad, called on the Byzantine Emperor, Heraclius—the symbolic head of Christendom—to recant Christianity and embrace Islam.  The emperor refused, jihad was declared, and the Arabs invaded Christian Syria, defeating the imperial army at the pivotal Battle of Yarmuk in 636.

This victory enabled the Muslims to swarm in all directions, so that, less than a century later, they had conquered the greater, older, and richer part of Christendom, including Syria, Egypt, and North Africa.

Their drive into Europe from the east was repeatedly frustrated by the Walls of Constantinople; after the spectacularly failed siege of 717-718, many centuries would pass before any Muslim power thought to capture the imperial city. The Arabs did manage to invade Europe proper through and conquered Spain but were stopped at the Battle of Tours in 732 and eventually driven back south of the Pyrenees.

For more than two centuries thereafter, Europe continued to be pummeled by land and sea—untold thousands of Christians were enslaved and every Mediterranean island sacked—in the ongoing Muslim quest for booty and slaves, as what historians have dubbed “the Dark Ages” descended on the continent.

The vicissitudes of war ebbed and flowed—the Eastern Roman Empire (“Byzantium”) made a major comeback against Islam in the tenth century—though the border largely remained the same.  This changed when the Turks, under the leadership of the Seljuk tribe, became the new standard bearers of jihad.  They nearly annihilated eastern Anatolia, particularly Armenia and Georgia in the eleventh century and, after the Battle of Manzikert, 1071, overran Asia Minor.

By now, however, Western Europe’s military might had so matured that when the Pope called on the knights of Christendom to come to the aid of the Christian East, the First Crusade was born.  Western Christians, led by the Franks, marched into the beast’s lair, defeated their adversaries in several encounters and managed to establish a firm presence in the Levant, including in Jerusalem, which they recaptured in 1099—only to lose it less than one hundred years later, in 1187, after the fateful Battle of Hattin.  By 1297, the Crusader presence was eliminated from the Middle East.

But if it failed in the East, the Crusade succeeded in the West.  A handful of years after the Muslim invasion and conquest of Spain around 711, fugitive Christians holed in the northern mountains of Asturia began the Reconquista; by 1085 it had proven effective enough to prompt two new Muslim invasions from Africa to counter it.  Again, the ebb and flow of war dominated the landscape, but by 1212, at Las Navas de Tolosa, Spain’s indigenous Christians gave Islam its death-stroke, so that by 1252 it was confined to Granada at the southernmost tip of Iberia.

Around that same time, a violent but relatively short-lived Mongolian storm overwhelmed much of the east; both Christians (notably Russians) and Muslims were pummeled.  A new Turkish dynasty arose from the Seljuk ashes: the Ottomans—whose identity revolved around the concept of jihad more than any of their predecessors—renewed Islam’s perennial war on Christendom.  They managed to enter Eastern Europe, defeated a combined army of Crusaders at Nicopolis in 1396, took much of the Balkans, and crowned their achievement by fulfilling Muhammad’s desire of conquering Constantinople—and enslaving and raping thousands of its inhabitants in ways that ISIS tries to mimic—in 1453.

But mourning was soon tempered by joy: to the west, Spain finally conquered Granada in 1492, thereby snuffing out Islam as a political power; to the east, the most overlooked chapter of Muslim-Christian conflict was also coming to an end.  The Russians, who had lived under distinctly Islamic rule for nearly two centuries, finally cast off the “Tatar Yoke” in 1480.

Even so, the Ottomans continued to be the scourge of Christendom; they continued making inroads into Europe—reaching but failing to capture Vienna in 1529—and sponsored the seaborne jihad originating from North Africa.  While the Muslims largely failed to capture new European lands, Barbary pirates and Crimean slavers captured and sold approximately five million Europeans.

In 1683, over 200,000 Ottoman jihadis attempted to take Vienna again.  Even though their failure marked the Ottoman Empire’s slow decline, Muslim slavers of the so-called Barbary States of North Africa continued to wreak havoc all along the coasts of Europe—reaching even Iceland.

The United States of America’s first war—which it fought before it could even elect its first president—was against these Islamic slavers.  When Thomas Jefferson and John Adams asked Barbary’s ambassador why his countrymen were enslaving American sailors, the “ambassador answered us that it was founded on the laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that … it was their right and duty to make war upon them [non-Muslims] wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.”

Europe’s final triumph over the Barbary States in the early 1800s ushered in the colonial era.  By 1900, most of the Muslim world was under European control; by 1924, the more than 600 year-old Ottoman caliphate was abolished—not by Europeans but Muslim Turks,  as the latter sought to emulate the successful ways of the former.  Islam was viewed as a spent force and virtually forgotten, until recent times when it reemerged again.

Such has been the true and most “general” history between the Islamic and Western worlds.

The above map (© Sword and Scimitar) should give an idea of how far reaching and multi-tentacled the perennial jihad was. The darkest green shading represents Western/Christian nations that were permanently conquered by Islam; the lighter green shading represents those Western/Christian nations that were temporarily conquered by Islam (sometimes for many centuries, as in Spain, Russia, and the Balkans); green stripes represent areas that were raided, often repeatedly, though not necessarily annexed by Islam; the crossed swords mark the sites of the eight most landmark battles between Islam and the West.

From a macrocosmic perspective, the consequences of the historic jihad are even more profound than first appears.  After writing, “For almost a thousand years, from the first Moorish landing in Spain [711] to the second Turkish siege of Vienna [1683], Europe was under constant threat from Islam,” Bernard Lewis elaborates:

All but the easternmost provinces of the Islamic realm had been taken from Christian rulers…  North Africa, Egypt, Syria, even Persian-ruled Iraq, had been Christian countries, in which Christianity was older and more deeply rooted than in most of Europe.  Their loss was sorely felt and heightened the fear that a similar fate was in store for Europe.

The “loss” of North Africa and the Middle East “was sorely felt” by premodern Europeans because they thought more along religious and civilizational lines than nationalist ones.   And before Islam burst onto the scene, most of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East were part of the same religio-civilizational block.  As such, Islam did not merely invade and eventually get repulsed from Europe; rather, “Muslim armies conquered three-quarters [or 75 percent] of the Christian world,” to quote historian Thomas Madden.

Thus what is now called “the West” is actually the western most remnant of what was a much more extensive civilizational block that Islam permanently severed, thereby altering the course of “Western” history.   And, once Muslims overran Africa and the Middle East, most of its Christian subjects, to evade fiscal and social oppression and join the winning team, converted to Islam, thereby perpetuating the cycle, as they became the new standard bearers of jihad against their former coreligionists north and west of the Mediterranean.

Such are the rarely noted ironies of history.

Returning to Hilaire Belloc, one can also see how an accurate understanding of true history—as opposed to the widespread indoctrination in “alternate” histories that prevails throughout American schools—leads to an accurate prognosis of the future.   For Belloc was not only correct about the past but the future as well:

It [Islam] is, as a fact, the most formidable and persistent enemy which our civilization has had, and may at any moment become as large a menace in the future as it has been in the past….  The whole spiritual strength of Islam is still present in the masses of Syria and Anatolia, of the East Asian mountains, of Arabia, Egypt and North Africa. The final fruit of this tenacity, the second period of Islamic power, may be delayed —but I doubt whether it can be permanently postponed (emphasis added).

COMMENTARY: so few see the threat and even fewer try to do something about it – it’s as if the people of the world have forgotten about the many genocides which have occurred throughout history – ;Never Again’ has become ‘until next time’ – international organizations and international courts simply do not give a damn, similar to the positions taken by almost all national governments – a human failure on a massive scale!

EXPOSING PHYSICAL AND INTELLECTUAL TERRORISM TO AWAKEN THE OBLIVIOUS

The risks to free society are too high to remain timid or silent and let evil prevail

September 2, 2019  Dr. Shmuel Katz

Reprinted from IsraelNationalNews.com.

It is terrible that incidents like using cars to run over innocent children and other means of terror are still happening in Israel and around the world, and that so many oblivious individuals are not being informed about these events – and even if they get to know about them, they do not care.

They do not understand that once evil is unleashed, ALL people from ALL walks of life, will become its victims.

Unfortunately, terror today is taking two major forms. One is the physical attack, by all kinds of weapons which may include cars, knives, bullets, rockets, bombs, etc. The other one is the verbal attacks which intend to incite, malign, deceive, rewrite history and educate the oblivious to become the perpetrators of malicious action. These actions could be physical terrorism and/or no less aggressive non-violent terrorism, which includes Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions.

Our fight against evil is relentless but there is too much uncontrolled evil to address with too few people fighting it. Therefore, it is imperative to educate as many people as possible with the correct information. This will help them join the effort to stand up against evil and expose the perpetrators of the deception, even if those perpetrators are members of Congress, University Professors, High School Teachers or any other person in important decision-making or educational positions.

The risks to free society are too high to remain timid or silent and let evil prevail.

The most recent event is the insane events dealing with the two Congress people from the USA, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. They were planning to come to Israel, not to study the true historical and current facts, and learn from both sides about the issues, so that they might be able to make an intelligent decision on reasonable recommendations to try and make the world a better place. Their declared intention was to boycott the Israeli leadership, and to go with anti-Israeli organizations.

This move was designed mainly to increase the level of deception and to misrepresent the issues, in order to assist the “Intellectual Terrorists” of the BDS movement, which is hoping to liquidate the state of Israel and cause harm to the Jews in Israel and in the Diaspora.

Imagine if another Radical Muslim Regime headed by the current, self serving, corrupt, Palestinian Authority or HAMAS, similar to the ones which are ruling Syria, Iran or Iraq, would be in charge in the Land of Israel. All good people from all walks of life, would become their targets, including those Arab Palestinians who would like to live in peace and harmony with their neighbors.

Even with relatively limited powers, the Palestinian Authority and Hamas are clinging to their political positions, using terror and deception, even mistreating their own. What is even worse, is the fact that they are using their educational system, and all other Governmental and Media resources, to promote lies and misinformation, including re-writing history, in order to brainwash even their own school children, and to perpetuate the conflict in the Middle East, to the detriment of all good people in the region and around the world.

By the way, the “Arab Palestinian People” were offered several times, in recent years, an independent state of their own, even though in the history of the world, there was never ever an Arab Palestinian people or state in the Middle East.

The more freedom to act and to plan we give the terror supporting entities, without exposing them, the less safe will all of us be.

It is high time to wake up and call out the perpetrators of evil, for what they are.

Maybe the oblivious will wake up.

Radical Islam: The Most Dangerous Ideology

Raymond Ibrahim. Sep 28, 2015

Is radical Islam our generation’s most dangerous ideology? Is it comparable to what Nazism and Communism were in the 20th century? Or are Islamists no more dangerous than extremist Christians, Jews, and Buddhists?
https://www.prageru.com/video/radical-islam-the-most-dangerous-ideology/

COMMENTARY: the hatred espoused in the Quran / Koran toward non-Muslims and even Muslims in other sects is unparalleled in history, applicable to the past, today’s world, and the afterlife – do you find it odd that their god who supposedly created Islam’s holy texts and all peoples of the earth could so hate his own supposed creations? I certainly doubt that’s just one man’s opinion – few will bother to read these so-called holy books so the failure falls on your individual shoulders – thin about that! your negligence and omissions will fall upon your own head when and if they take power as they fully intend to do no matter how long it takes – they were promised that it would happen and they strongly believe it will – the threat remains in force until…. – got that?

Kafir with a Capital K

Feb 21 2018 | by  Bill Warner

I came to my study of Islam late in life, but I had studied religious text all of my life starting being a teenager. I’ve studied Torah through Orthodox Synagogue. I’ve studied the New Testament a fair amount. I’ve studied Buddhist Sutras, I’ve studied the Bhagavad Gita, I’ve studied a lot of religious texts, and then I came to Islam. Islam was very different, because it was so concerned with the non-Muslim. You see, when you read Buddha’s Sutras, it’s concerned with how to be a Buddhist. It doesn’t concern itself with non-Buddhist. 

Now here’s the problem – not only did Islamic doctrine concern itself with the Non-Muslim, the treatment of the Non-Muslin was terrible. There were two treatments of the Non-Muslim – one is religious in that they went to hell, but the other is political, what happened to them in life today. So we need a special name for the non-Muslim, because non-Muslim is a neutral term, and yet the non-Muslim is not treated neutrally. They can be enslaved, tortured, raped, lied to, deceived, plotted against. These are not neutral things, these are political terms and they’re very harmful.

Now the Koran has a word for the non-Muslim. It’s called Kafir. K-A-F-I-R. Now, like everything else in the Koran, the meaning slightly shifts over time. At first the word Kafir just means someone who is not grateful, or who covers the truth. But as time goes on, finally the non-Muslim, the Kafir, can be destroyed in Jihad. So there’s a progression of different meanings the Kafir but in the end the Kafir can be harmed. And that’s the reason I don’t like being a Kafir. Now you all know I like to measure things, and so one of the things I measured was how much of the Koran, the Sira and the Hadith are about the non-Muslim. The answer – fifty one percent. 

That is, most of Islamic doctrine concerns itself with the Kafir, which is a political problem, not just a religious problem. Now then, the Koran uses lot of different words for the non-Muslim that are religious. People of the book, pagan, polytheist, Jew, Christian apostate, infidel, but all of those who did not submit to the Sharia suffered a political consequence, which was some form of harm – death, torture, execution, assassination. These were political ends. 

Now, Muslims like to tell us, we’ve seen, the people of the book, Christians and Jews, they’re not really Kafirs. They’re brothers in the family of Abraham. Let’s see how these brothers in the family of Abraham are treated. Do you think the Jews that they were executed, as people of the book, felt any different than the pagan who was executed? No. 

The political consequence is the same. Submission of some form or another. There are different classes of Kafirs in the Koran. We have atheist, polytheist, deist, idolaters, and then Jews who believe in revelation but don’t believe in Mohammed’s revelation. But in the end, everyone’s a Kafir who does not believe in the Shahada. The Shahada is ‘There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet.’ 

I view Islam as a political system, and the Sharia extends to all other religions, which is a political thing. They must all submit and run their lives according to the Sharia. The Kafir is a political class. Unfortunately, historically, their victims stand and suffer alone. That is, the Buddhists suffer and who knows about it? The suffering of the Africans under Jihad involved in slavery, who knows about that? The Hindus know about their own suffering, but they don’t really know about the suffering of the Christians who were in what was originally called Asia Minor, or what is called Turkey today. So, although the people suffer, they suffer alone. And I want to use the word Kafir to show that they all are the same political class. 

Now I’m coming to one of my main points. Any time I make a video about religion that includes Christians and Jews, I get hate mail about that. People hate the Jews, they hate the Christians, they hate the Jesuits, they hate the Catholics, they hate the Protestants. Here’s the thing, go ahead and hate ’em, but know this, you, the hater, you’re going to suffer the same political result as the Jew, the Christian and everyone else. 

Get the picture. You may not like other religions, but in the end, whether you’re an atheist or not, you’re going to suffer the same political consequences. This is the reason I want to use the word Kafir – to unite us politically. We’re all the same in a political class. Now then, how do you know that if you use Kafir as the right word? 

And by the way, I use Kafir with a capital K, because I use it to mean a special meaning – all those who suffer under Islam. Here’s how you know you’re using the right word. You know who doesn’t want you to use that word? Muslims. You see, it’s their little dirty word that’s a secret. Now, we have a word in the English language that we can’t use and we call it the N-word. Well, Kafir is the K-word in Islam. So, Muslims hate it, which is the proof that we need to use it. 

In the Arabic, the plural of Kafir is Kuffar, K-U-F-F-A-R. But I don’t use that. I want to use the English plural Kafirs, plural with an S, because I want the word to become adapted and used. We must understand that all Kafirs are the same in the end. So, therefore, we need to use the same word for each other. Thank you.
