Yesterday, NBA basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and actor/martial arts aficionado, Bruce Lee, “dropped” in the film classic, “Game of Death”, joined the chorus singing the “Islamophobia” song. But, seriously, folks, what Abdul-Jabbar is sharing publicly about his views on Islam is NO joking matter.
While calling into Katie Couric during her broadcast, Abdul-Jabbar did his part in the (mis)information war.
“I think Islamophobia is on the rise,” “I think Islamophobia is on the rise,” the former Los Angeles Laker said. “I think the best way to counter it is just communication, to let people who we are and what we believe in. It’s no mystery and it’s certainly nothing that we have to be fearful of.”
Come on Kareem, you mean the best way to counter “Islamophobia” is to say anything to cover for Islam. Just like your so-called prophet commanded!
r8.2 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,
“He who settles disagreements between people to bring about good or says something commendable is not a liar.”
When you speak of morals, is that what you mean Kareem?
YUSUFALI: Never should a believer kill a believer; but (If it so happens) by mistake, (Compensation is due): If one (so) kills a believer, it is ordained that he should free a believing slave, and pay compensation to the deceased’s family, unless they remit it freely. If the deceased belonged to a people at war with you, and he was a believer, the freeing of a believing slave (Is enough). If he belonged to a people with whom ye have treaty of Mutual alliance, compensation should be paid to his family, and a believing slave be freed. For those who find this beyond their means, (is prescribed) a fast for two months running: by way of repentance to Allah: for Allah hath all knowledge and all wisdom.
Would you like to be a slave in the name of Islam? Slavery is ALWAYS wrong no matter what ideology espouses it! Islam included.
