My “Debate” With Islamic Apologist, Professor Juan Cole

When last week’s South Park/Mohammad controversy started, the NY based website, had stated that the shows creators Matt Stone, and Trey Parker might be murdered. (Video below)

At this point Professor Juan Cole, came running to defend Islam. Which is basically what his life revolves around.

“Yunus Muhammad” says in the interview that the Qur’an instructs Muslims to ‘terrorize the disbelievers.’ It does no such thing. The Qur’an instructs Muslims to live at peace with non-Muslims who are at peace with them. (It turns at that this minor, fringe group is led by converts from Judaism, one of them a former settler in Israel. It is not clear whether they have sincerely exchanged one fanaticism for another or whether this is a false flag operation, perhaps of an intelligence agency. In any case, it is no accident that they are ignorant of the Qur’an.

The false flag comment is pretty funny, as Cole will obviously say anything to defend Islam. At this point I left the following post on Cole’s site. It was held in moderation mode, until approval.

Juan Cole needs to stop making excuses for Islam.

Here is what 8:60 states.

YUSUFALI: Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.

The Koran does say to terrorize non-Muslims.

YUSUFALI: Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”

YUSUFALI: This because they contended against Allah and His Messenger: If any contend against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in punishment.

You guys might want to look up what “contend” means. Simple reasons that call for Muslims to terrorize non-Muslims.


Or this hadith…

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

I know, Cole knows more about Islam, and has more influence in the Islamic world, than Sahih Bukhari does…

The Koran also instructs Muslims that they can kill someone for spreading “mischief” in the land. “Mischief”, can be anything that a Muslim says that it is.

YUSUFALI: On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.

The Koran is also for all time, and Mohammad’s actions are to be followed for all time.

The funny part is that Juan Cole, does not get to dictate to Muslims what Islam is. But his followers act like he has a say in the Islamic world. The man is a traitor to Western Civilization.

Have a nice day…

I also emailed the comment to Cole, and the following was that best that he could do.

In order to iterpret an ancient text expertly you need to know the
language and the context.

At least have the humility to know what you don’t know.


The old, it is not interpreted correctly excuse does not fly. So in my reply, I pointed out which Islamic scholars had translated the scriptures that I have studied.

Translation: You cannot refute what I said, and Islam is a religion of war. Which is backed up by Yusuf Ali, Bukhari, Muslim, and the scholars at Al Azhar. But maybe they did not know the language and context either, and you know better. That is pretty funny. You are a fraud, that helps the enemy advance.

They are all wrong, and you the nobody in the Islamic world is right. Hilarious.

YUSUFALI: Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”
PICKTHAL: When thy Lord inspired the angels, (saying): I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger.

The context is that the actions of Mohammad, are to be followed for all time.

YUSUFALI: Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.

But you only show your readers what you want them to know.

Besides these scholars, maybe you can go to Al Azhar (the highest learning Islamic school in the world), and teach them what Islam really is….

Have great day!

At this point Cole ran away, with his tail between his legs. He also left this comment on his site.

You would be wrong. The Qur’an says that Christians are closest in love to Mislims. The Qur’an does not consider non-Muslims enemies of God! It praises the children of Israel. False premises lead to false assertions.

I responded by saying that verse 5:32 (above), and the following verse which calls for the extortion of Christians and Jews do not praise Israelis. Why do you only show your readers certain parts of the Koran?

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.

For hours my comments on his site were held in moderation mode. They were then deleted by Cole, who obviously does not want his readers to know the ugly truth about Islam. Juan Cole, the cowardly traitor.
