UK: Pro-Islamic Ad Campaign Undone

(Picture by Getty Images)
In an effort to con the public, that Islam is peaceful and fair, the Exploring Islam Foundation, has started the Inspired by Mohammad ad campaign. The ads will be placed on London bus stops and taxis. A spokesperson for the foundation, made the following statement.

Organiser the Exploring Islam Foundation said the campaign aims to highlight the Prophet Mohamed’s teachings to Muslims on the importance of the environment, gender equality and social justice.

Here are three of the talking points, they will be using.

“I believe in social justice. So did Muhammad.”

“I believe in women’s rights. So did Muhammad.”

“I believe in protecting the environment. So did Muhammad.”

Lets take them apart one by one.

“I believe in social justice. So did Muhammad.”

The “social justice” that Mohammad believed in was, that non-Muslims had less rights under Islamic rule. They had to pay extortion in order to live, as second-class citizens.

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.

Another form of Mohammad’s “social justice” is shown in this Koran verse.

005.033
YUSUFALI: The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;

The problem with this verse is that “mischief”, can be just about anything that a Muslims says it is.

“I believe in women’s rights. So did Muhammad.”

Mohammad believed in less rights for women.

Court Testimony: The testimony of one man is equivalent to that of two women.

002.282
YUSUFALI:
Let his guardian dictate faithfully, and get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her.

Here is a verse from a Bukhari Hadith, that backs up the Koran verse above.

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 301:
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:

Once Allah’s Apostle went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) o ‘Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women).” They asked, “Why is it so, O Allah’s Apostle ?” He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.” The women asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He said, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?” The women replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her religion.”

Once again we see that under Islam, women have less rights than men. Why are men allowed up to four wives, but a women can only have one husband?

004.003
YUSUFALI: If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice.

In the following verse Mohammad clearly states that men are above women.

002.228
YUSUFALI: Divorced women shall wait concerning themselves for three monthly periods. Nor is it lawful for them to hide what Allah Hath created in their wombs, if they have faith in Allah and the Last Day. And their husbands have the better right to take them back in that period, if they wish for reconciliation. And women shall have rights similar to the rights against them, according to what is equitable; but men have a degree (of advantage) over them. And Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.

“I believe in protecting the environment. So did Muhammad.”

Except during jihad, of course. Which is pretty much constantly.

From the Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law

Justice Chapter: Jihad

o9.15 It is permissible in jihad to cut down the enemy’s trees and destroy their dwellings.

Book 019, Number 4325:
It is narrated on the authority of Ibn Umar that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) caused the date-palms of Banu Nadir to be cut down and burnt. It is in this connection that Hassan (the poet) said:

It was easy for the nobles of Quraish to barn Buwaira whose sparks were flying in all directions.

in the same connection was revealed the Qur’anic verse:” Whatever trees you have cut down or left standing on their trunks.”

In conclusion we see that Muslims, are not being honest with us again.

A spokesman for Quilliam, the counter-extremism think tank said, “This initiative also helps British Muslims reclaim the Prophet Mohamed as a time-honoured guide for peace, compassion and social justice from those who seek to twist his teachings.”

Excuse me, but what I posted is directly from the Islamic scriptures. Your attempted smokescreen, has failed.

Israel Tries to Deliver Flotilla Aid to Gaza and it is Refused~ Video

Last week when Israeli soldiers defended themselves aboard a ship heading to Gaza, people across the world took a stand against Israel. What most people do not know is that days later, Israel kindly took the aid off of the ship, in an effort to bring it to Gaza. (Video)

Sine then the aid has been refused by Hamas, which shows us this is not about aid. It is about causing problems for Israel, and the international community continually falls for it.

Hamas Refuses Israel’s Delivery of Flotilla Supplies (Update1)
By Jonathan Ferziger and Saud Abu Ramadan

(Bloomberg) — Hamas refused to accept an Israeli delivery of at least 20 truckloads of humanitarian aid from the flotilla of ships that commandos intercepted in a raid that left nine people dead.

Hamas officials in the Gaza Strip and Israel’s Defense Ministry said today the cargo, including medical supplies, clothing, blankets and toys, was held up at the Kerem Shalom crossing after being brought 38 kilometers (23.6 miles) south from the port in Ashdod.

Hamas said it wouldn’t take the aid because Israel confiscated some of the supplies and was still holding some of the more than 700 passengers involved in the May 31 attempt to break Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza. Israel said last night it had expelled all foreigners from the ships except for seven who are hospitalized. It is also detaining an Israeli Arab religious leader who may be prosecuted. Hamas is considered a terrorist organization by Israel, the U.S. and the European Union.

Traitor George Galloway Makes Major Announcement on Israel~ Video

British politician George Galloway, a Benedict Arnold to non-Muslims has made a major announcement. He has stated that the day after Ramadan there will two shipments of aid heading to Gaza, one by land, the other by sea. In his furious support of Palestine he has called on their supporters, to take it upon themselves and break the “siege”. He is clearly inciting violence, and I would not shed a tear if the IDF makes an example of him.

Hat tip to Joan.

The Pope and Other Christian Leaders Take a Swing at Islam

The Pope and numerous other Christian leaders have done the right thing, and have taken a stand for their Christian brothers and sisters, that are suffering under Islamic rule. There is growing list of Christians that are speaking out on this issue. Some of them are the Cardinal George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney,  the Chaldean Catholic Archbishop Louis Sako of Kirkuk, Dr. Terry Jones, the Senior Pastor of the Dove World Outreach Center, Reza Safa who a is pastor of the Fishermen’s House Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Todd Weston, pastor of River of Life Assembly of God, and Reverend Franklin Graham. This is not about religion to me, this is about preserving freedom, but we do need leaders of all religions to band together and take a stand against Islam. This is encouraging.

Vatican Decries Plight of Mideast Christians
By RACHEL DONADIO
Published: June 6, 2010

NICOSIA, Cyprus — In a document presented here on Sunday by Pope Benedict XVI, bishops from across the Middle East called on Christians to become a dynamic minority in a conflict-ridden region and attributed their declining population here to “instability” caused by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the war in Iraq and unrest in Lebanon.

It also lamented the rise of “political Islam,” and said Christians suffered in countries where Muslims often “make no distinction between religion and politics.”

Benedict’s five-year-old papacy has been marked by tensions with Muslims and Jews, which his visit last year to Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian Territories did not entirely put to rest. The document issued Sunday, a working paper for a meeting of bishops to be held in Rome this fall, touched on some of the most contentious issues of Mideast politics and seemed poised to elicit controversy.

Ending his three-day visit to Cyprus, Benedict also made a “personal appeal for an urgent and concerted international effort to resolve the ongoing tensions in the Middle East, especially in the Holy Land, before such conflicts lead to greater bloodshed.”

The first visit by a pope to Cyprus was aimed at strengthening ties between the Catholic and Orthodox churches and calling attention to the situation of Christians in the Middle East.

But even as the pope called for peace and dialogue, the weekend was darkened by the killing in Turkey on Thursday of Bishop Luigi Padovese, 62, the head of the Turkish bishops conference and one of the authors of the document. His Turkish driver has been arrested and charged with the crime. The pope has played down the killing as a “personal” matter and not driven by religious or political motives, although the details surrounding the death remain unclear.

In recent decades, the percentage of Christians in the Middle East has fallen from 20 percent of the population to less than 5 percent, and the number is dropping.

“Today, emigration is particularly prevalent because of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the resulting instability throughout the region,” the bishops’ document said. “The menacing social situation in Iraq and the political instability of Lebanon further intensify the phenomenon.”

It also said that the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories created “difficulties in everyday life, inhibiting freedom of movement, the economy and religious life,” as well as making access difficult to some Christian holy sites in the West Bank, such as the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

Israel’s ambassador to the Vatican, Mordechay Lewy, said the document’s assessment of the situation of Christians in Israel and the Palestinian Territories was “more or less realistic,” but he dismissed the idea that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was the main cause of Christian flight.

“We reject any view which pinpoints the conflict between the Palestinians and us as the source of every instability in the region,” he said. “The region is also unstable without this conflict.”

In a passage that seemed aimed at American evangelicals, the document said that “certain Christian fundamentalist theologies use sacred scripture to justify Israel’s occupation of Palestine, making the position of Christian Arabs an even more sensitive issue.”

The Italian-language version of the passage was more critical of Israel and said that scripture should not be used “to justify the political injustice imposed on the Palestinians.”

The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said both versions were official. “They are rather different,” he acknowledged. “But this is a working document.”

The document was written by a dozen bishops and top Vatican officials, including the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem and bishops from Egypt, Syria and Iran, based on comments submitted by bishops across the Middle East before a month-long bishops’ meeting in Rome in October.

Benedict sees Christians “not as a minority in decline, but as a creative minority,” said Andrea Riccardi, the founder of the Community of Sant’Egidio, a lay Catholic group active in interreligious dialogue which helped organize the pope’s visit to Cyprus.

“The Christian minority in the Middle East is important to prevent Muslim totalitarianism.”

The document said relations between Christians and Muslims were often difficult “principally because Muslims make no distinction between religion and politics, thereby relegating Christians to the position of being considered non-citizens, despite the fact that they were citizens of their country long before the rise of Islam.”But Adnane Mokrani, a Tunisian Muslim who teaches Islamic studies at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, said the link between religion and politics came from “history and culture” more than Islam. “The real problem is dictatorship which often tries to justify itself using religion and nationalism,” he said.

Adnane, Islam is a complete way of life, which includes a political aspect. Save the con.

Alan Colmes has Refused to Debate me on Islam

This is the update to my “My Challenge to Alan Colmes” article. After I put that post together, I sent it to Colmes along with a friend request on Facebook. He wrote me back to thank me for the friend request, but did not respond to this email in which I challenged him to a debate on Islam.

Mr. Colmes,

I just saw a video where you stated that there is no such thing as radical Islam, and also that Islam is not the problem. Do you care to back your statement up in a debate? If so befriend me, and head to my wall.

My Challenge to Alan Colmes

Thanks,

Christopher

Here is our exchange on Facebook today.

Alan Colmes June 4 at 5:19pm thanks Christopher.
I’m also here:

Christopher Logan June 4 at 5:27pm Hi Alan,
Did you receive my email about your comments on Islam?

Chris

Alan Colmes June 4 at 5:30pm not sure, Chris…I have get so many

Christopher Logan June 4 at 6:19pm OK, here is it again.

My Challenge to Alan Colmes

Alan Colmes June 4 at 6:22pm thanks for the offer…. I’ve said what I’ve wanted to say about it.
best wishes.

Christopher Logan June 4 at 6:53pm So you wish to remain purposely blind to serious threat. Making excuses for Islam only hurts our families future generations, as Muslims are looking to replace Western Civilization with Sharia Law.

Best,
Chris

Mr. Colmes has not responded to my last email to him. You would think that since he is a well known radio personality, he would actually want to back up his statements. We can now add him to the following list of these other known Islamic excuse makers, that have refused to debate me on Islam.

Ebrahim Moosa, associate professor of religion at Duke, Charles Kurzman, professor of sociology at UNC, and David Schanzer, an associate professor in Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy and director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security. Others being Professor Juan Cole, and Canadian Imam Syed Soharwardy. Apparently the truth does not matter, these days.

Oceanside California DMV Bows to Islam

The Islamic onslaught of America continues, and unfortunately non-Muslim continue to bow down to the demands of Muslims. All Americans should be outraged that our brave troops are overseas fighting the violent jihad, and yet our weak government is letting the lawful jihad slowly, tear us apart from within.

DMV apologizes to Muslim woman for taking off religious head scarf.
By Brian Flores FOX 5 San Diego Staff
June 3, 2010

OCEANSIDE, Calif., – Is it discrimination or miscommunication ? An Oceanside woman claimed she was discriminated at a branch of the Department of Motor Vehicles back in February.

Dina Rabie said that during a trip to the Oceanside DMV office about three months ago, an employee told her that she had to take of her “hijab” or headscarf.

“It’s a religious thing. It’s for Muslim women. you have to wear it. It’s more than covering your hair,” said Rabie.

But when she posed to take her license picture, after moving to San Diego from New Jersey, she claimed the DMV employee told her that she needed to take it off because ‘it was the rules.’

“Everybody was looking at me, and I was very embarassed actually,” she said. “I was like, I have my New Jersey drivers license, I have my green card, and I never had a problem with that, and I never had to take off my scarf in public.”

According to Dina, taking off the hijab in public is similar to being naked. Nonetheless, shocked and embarrassed, she complied and took the picture anyway. With her mother and brother waiting outside, she said she was in tears after the incident.

“He said, this is not New Jersey or New York. This is California,” she said of the DMV employee.

But now with the help of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, she wants her message public, and doesn’t want anybody to go through her situation, no matter what religion they believe.

“I just don’t want to see anybody in my situation. It was very embarrassing. everybody was looking at me like I’m from a different planet or something,” said Rabie.

Since the incident, the DMV said this was a misunderstanding between the employee and Dina. In a statement, the DMV said: “This isolated incident is a very unfortunate misunderstanding/communication between the customer and the employee who was taking the photo. It is a long standing policy that customers may keep their head coverings on if they are needed for religious reasons. The only stipulation is that the face has to be totally visible (eyes, nose, mouth) with no shadows.”

The DMV also said the field office manager has reviewed the policy with the employee, and steps have been taken to stop misunderstandings in the future. The DMV field office manager also apologized to Dina and arranged for her to come in next Monday to retake the photo, said the DMV.

However Dina said she is unsure whether she will do that.

“I’m very embarassed to be in the same situation or to be treated in a special way or something,” said Rabie.

The DMV said they will also hold a refresher course on religious head coverings policy at field offices next Wednesday.
