This afternoon I was surfing the Internet in an effort to find a whitewashing of Islam that I could counter with the truth. What I came across was the Saudi Gazette.
It is prohibited in Islam to treat an animal cruelly or to kill it except as needed for food. The holy Qur’an tells us that “there is not an animal on earth, nor a bird that flies on its wings, but they are communities like you,’ and according to an established hadeeth when the Prophet (PBUH) was asked if Allah rewarded acts of charity to animals, he replied: “Yes, there is a reward for acts of charity to every beast alive. Whoever is merciful even to a sparrow, Allah will be merciful to him on the Day of Judgment.”
As Muslims, it is our duty to be merciful with all living creatures. In the process, we should reward individuals such as the lady aforementioned and others who seek to find comfort for disposed animals with compassion and understanding and not subject them to distress and intolerance. Let us strive together to make 2016 a year of compassion toward all living creatures.

Unfortunately Muslims have a different mindset than most non-Muslims, and that is why there is a clash of the civilizations taking place in the West. Because amputations, Koran 5:38, crucifixions 5:33, and lashings 24:2 are not acts of mercy.
Neither is the Muslim
festival, errr…blood-feast for Allah known as Qurbani.
Does this look like an act of mercy?
In an effort to counter the Saudi Gazette’s whitewashing of Islam I left the following comments.
After a short wait I noticed that the comments were deleted and decided to leave another one.
Which resulted in this…..
Islam is so vile that it is indefensible. Even by our so called Saudi allies.
