I frequently speak about the never-ending information war in which we are engaged with the Islamic world. One of the Muslim tactics is to pit other non-Muslim Americans against us, and they know just who to target: America’s impressionable youth! Let’s examine a perfect example of this practice. This is today’s article from the University Daily Kansan:
Bond: Educate yourself on Islamic faith to help stop Muslim prejudices
Since September 11, 2001, Muslims in America have constantly been targets to religious intolerance. One would think after 10 years the hype of Muslim terrorists would be over. I thought that today people were more educated about the Islamic faithand put aside their prejudices. I hoped Americans no longer took seriously the minority of people who burn Qurans and solicit hate speech toward Muslims. However, I have been sadly proven wrong once again.
I get it, all the Islamic terrorist attacks that have taken place across the world post 911 are just “hype”. Don’t believe the “hype!” Besides that, people are more educated about Islam today, and that is exactly why they are speaking out against it.
On March 10, a congressional hearing took place to discuss Islamic terrorism within America in association with radical Muslims living in the U.S. The New York Times wrote that some people at the hearing portrayed Muslims to be a “community ignoring radicalization among its own.” Witnesses testified saying things like, “Our children are in danger” and “Americans are sitting around doing nothing about radical extremists.”
Our children are in danger. The danger comes from the Sharia movement that is taking place across America. Do you want your children to be subjugated under Sharia?
But what are Muslims here in America supposed to do about this issue? Aren’t there radical beliefs in every religion that could lead to radical acts? It is disappointing that we have decided to single out Islamic radicals and Muslim communities once again. While it seems that Congress was split on the issue, the fact still remains that Islamic intolerance is still an issue in America.
Christians and Jews are not on a worldwide movement looking to impose a barbaric set of religious laws on all. Now please explain why Sharia should be tolerated. I’d really like to hear an answer…
This intolerance is spreading all over the world and has recently landed in France as well. On April 11, France officially banned the wearing of “full faced veils” in public. Muslim women, who wear the niqab for religious purposes, are outraged that they are being limited in expressing their faith. Once again, the Islamic faith is being targeted for Muslim radicalism that now threatens the French Republic.
I had to reread that last sentence twice. YES, Muslim “radicalism” does threaten the French Republic. Muslim “radicalism” = Islam. This is as simple as 1 + 1 = 2.
This intolerance toward the Islamic faith needs to be stopped here in America and abroad. It starts with us here at KU. The Muslim Student Association on campus works to educate the student body about Muslim identity. It is our job to learn all we can about what the Islamic religion is truly about and not base our opinions and thoughts on what the world is trying to tell us about a select group of radical Muslims.
Tell me one valid reason why we should tolerate Sharia! The MSA is part of the Islamic propaganda machine. From their Kansas University website:
“Once this is realized, it should be clear that Islam has the most continuous and universal message of any religion, because all prophets and messengers were “Muslims”, i.e. those who submitted to God’s will, and they preached “Islam”, i.e. submission to the will of Almighty God.”
Was Mohammad part of this “select group of radical Muslims”?
Bukhari Hadith Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25: Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:
Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.”
Back to Bond:
Education can start with attending prayer at the Islamic Center of Lawrence mosque on Fridays at 1:30 p.m., attend events during the MSA Islam Awareness Week, take an Islam course through the department of religion or research on your own. Religious intolerance will not stop until prejudices can be put aside and individually we can start to move forward in our education of others. Perhaps eventually then, America and the world will become a place where freedom of religion is truly present.

Would that be a course that you took? Because, if so, it was a complete waste of your time! You are obviously unaware of the intolerance of Islam.
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him;but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.
You are also oblivious to the lack of religious freedom under Islam.
Koran verse 009.029
YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
Sorry Bond, journalists are supposed to do their homework. You get an “F”!
