In order to win the war with Islam, we must win the information war against Muslim propagandists. Unfortunately we continue to see prominent and non-prominent Muslims mislead the public on Islam, continually going unchallenged. Which is why I take the time to counter Islamocons.
NOT IN THE PROPHET’S NAME
Imran Khan at the UNGA: “There is no such thing as radical Islam”
I have to admit that I do agree with that statement. As there is only the Koran, and it is the book of Islam. Not radical Islam or “Islamism”. Other than that the rest of his speech was a typical whitewashing of Islam before the UN’s General Assembly.
Perhaps the most powerful and passionate part of his 50-minute speech, which went beyond the time allotted by the proceedings, was a plea to world leaders to end Islamophobia. Khan said that he had always hoped, were he ever to take such a prominent global stage, to use it to clear some of the misunderstanding surrounding Islam and its followers—and the responsibilities of both Western and Muslim leaders in fostering it.
“Islamophobia since 9/11 has grown at a pace which is alarming,” said Khan. He blamed some Western leaders for it, as well as Muslim ones. “Certain Western leaders equated terrorism with Islam,” he said, by employing labels like “radical Islam.” Khan finds the very concept intrinsically contradictory, because “no religion teaches radicalism. The basis of all religion is compassion and justice, which differentiates us from the animal kingdom.” Still, Khan said the use of “radical Islam” by Western leaders has created an association between a whole religion and terrorism, and put people in the position of suspecting all Muslims. “How is a person in New York, in a European country, or in the Midwest of the US going to distinguish between who’s a moderate Muslim and who’s a radical Muslim?”
That is easy. By challenging Muslims with their own scriptures. Because moderate people do not support the following radical actions.
Amputations, Koran 5:38
[As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah . And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
Crucifixions, Koran 5:33
Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment,
Lashings, Koran 24:2
The [unmarried] woman or [unmarried] man found guilty of sexual intercourse – lash each one of them with a hundred lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of Allah, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a group of the believers witness their punishment.
“We, as the Muslim world, did not explain to the West that there was no such thing as radical Islam,” said Khan. He went on to talk about the tolerant history and values of Muslim civilizations, but didn’t shy away from breaking down some of the aspects that may lead some to think of Islam, he said, as “an intolerant religion, against freedom of expression.” Khan addressed the issue of religious satire, and the strong reactions it elicits in the Muslim community, and said the perception that such reactions are exaggerated stems from a lack of knowledge and understanding of the way people think about religion.
Explain away. Because as I have been saying for years. Islam itself is the problem. Thank you.
“When I first went to England, there was a comedy film on Jesus Christ. That’s unthinkable in Muslim societies,” Khan said, adding that any kind of criticism or mocking of the prophet generates emotional pain amongst his followers. So he asked to be sensitive toward this, rather than assume that all cultures accept the same standards. “In human communities we have to be sensitive towards what causes pain to other human beings,” he said. “In the Western society, and quite rightly, the Holocaust is treated with sensitivity, because it gives the Jewish community pain. That’s all we ask: Do not use freedom of speech to cause us pain by insulting our holy prophet. That’s all we want.”
So Muslims should stay in Islamic societies. Problem solved. As for the so called tolerance, the PM clearly has none for freedom of speech in the West, and clearly does not care that Islam insults non-Muslims.
Koran 9:29, as per the world renowned Tafsir Ibn Kathir.
Like Islam, the PM is a one-way street. One who should not be allowed to step foot in America ever again. (That is NOT a call to violence.)
