There Is Only One Legitimate Claim To Jerusalem

October 21, 2010

During my first visit to Israel I was told that Jerusalem was a holy city for three major religions, 1.Judaism, 2.Christianity and 3.Islam. Today, everybody mentions this as a fact.

But as I started to investigate the different religions, I studied the Tanach, the Christian Bible and the Koran, and discovered the following.

1. In the Jewish Bible, Jerusalem has many names: Salem (Shalem), Moriah, Jebuse (Yevuse), Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), and Zion (Tziyon). The most common term for the city, Yerushalayim, is mentioned 349 times in the Jewish Bible, while Tziyon is mentioned an additional 108 times.

The earliest mention of the site is Genesis 4:18, when Abraham interacts with Malchizedek, King of Shalem. In Genesis 22:1-19, the story of the Binding of Isaac (not Ishmael!) also takes place on “Mount Moriah” the site of the present-day Temple Mount. This area is located beneath the platform on which the Moslem Shrine, the Dome of the Rock, now stands.

When David was anointed King of Israel (c. 1000 BC), and subsequently united the tribes of Israel, he captured the city — which he perceived as an ideal site for the capital of his new kingdom. Then, with the King and the Ark of the Covenant in residence in the city, Jerusalem was transformed into both the political capital and the religious center of Israel. King David’s son and successor, Solomon, consolidated Jerusalem’s eternal religious significance for all Jews by building the First Temple.

2. The Christian connection starts during 1.Century, when the Romans ruled over that area. The Christian Bible tells us that Jesus came to Jerusalem with his Jewish parents when he was twelve and visited the Temple. Of the Biblical writers, Luke, reports the visit of Jesus at the age of 12. The book of John records that Jesus restored a blind man’s eyesight at the pool of Shiloah. The Shiloah pool is the end of the Shiloah channel that was dug to bring water from the Gihon spring to a reservoir inside the city walls. When you hike through Hezekiah’s tunnel, this is where you’ll end up – by the Shiloah pool. Jerusalem is therefore important to Christians; however, since Jesus was a Jew, it is still a Jewish connection.

3. What about the Islamic claim? Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran, not even once. So what is the story?

Sura 17 in the Koran, tells us that Mohammed flew, in a dream, on a horse, from the sacred mosque to the farthest mosque. Muslims claim it today to be the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. That would make Mohammed’s alleged overnight trip covering 1,000 miles from Mecca to Jerusalem, a trip to heaven, and a return to Mecca by morning.

Mohammed died in 632 of the Common Era. At the time of his death there was no mosque built in Jerusalem! The Aksa Mosque was built 20 years after the Dome of the Rock, which was built in 691-692 by Khalif Abd El Malik. That’s about 80 years after Mohammed died.

Therefore it is crystal clear that Mohammed could never have had this mosque in mind when he compiled the Koran, since it did not exist for another three generations after his death. Rather, as many scholars long ago established, it is logical that Mohammed intended the mosque in Mecca as the “Sacred Mosque,” and the mosque in Medina as the “Furthest Mosque.”

So much for the Islamic claim on Jerusalem as one of their holy places. Goebbels said once that “If the lie is big enough and told often enough, it will be believed.” The Islamic claim is a lie, that’s all it is.

There is only one legitimate claim to Jerusalem as their city, and that’s the Jewish claim. I think even Jesus would agree with that. J

By The Rivers Of Babylon

July 22, 2010

 

The song, “Rivers of Babylon”, was popular when I was younger. It was performed in the 1970s by the disco group Boney M. The band was hugely popular in Europe and Israel some 35 years ago. I still remember the melody.

The song’s lyrics were taken from Psalm 137, including some words from Psalm 19:14.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down;
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion.
 

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down;
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion.

When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Require from us a song –
Now how shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?

When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Requiring of us a song –
Now how shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?

Let the words of our mouths and the meditation of our hearts
be acceptable in Thy sight here tonight

Let the words of our mouths and the meditation of our hearts
be acceptable in Thy sight here tonight

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down;
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion.

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion.

By the rivers of Babylon (the waters of Babylon)
there we sat down (You got to sing a song)
ye-eah we wept, (Sing a song of love)
when we remember Zion. (Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)

By the rivers of Babylon (by the rivers of Babylon)
there we sat down (You hear the people cry)
ye-eah we wept, (They need their God)
when we remember Zion. (Ooh, got the power) 

By the rivers of Babylon, (oh yeah yeah)
where we sat down (yeah yeah)
Ye-eah we wept……… 

Well, this week the group performed at Ramallah, but the local music festival prevented it from performing one of its biggest hits – because it mentioned the Jewish people’s yearning for the Land of Zion.

According to the news, lead singer Maizie Williams said Palestinian Authority concert organizers told her not to sing “Rivers of Babylon.” The organizers said they asked for the song to be skipped, because they found it “inappropriate”.

Muslim and Arab culture in general, tend to vehemently deny the connection between the People of Israel and the Land of Israel to the world and to themselves as well.

Yet the Bible – the book that Western civilization is built around –contains thousands of verses that establish the connection without a possible doubt. – The Jews’ yearning for Israel and the Divine commandment of settling in Israel is among the most central themes of the Holy Book, if not the most central one. Repeatedly in the Bible, G-d exhorts the Jews to obey his commandments or suffer banishment from the Holy Land.

“I don’t know if it is a political thing or what, but they asked us not to do it and we were a bit disappointed that we could not do it because we know that everybody loves this song no matter what,” Williams said. “I believe you should entertain wherever you are asked to entertain, whether it is Israel, whether it is Palestine, whether it is Lebanon, where ever it is, we go,” she added.

Don’t you love this song? I do.

Jewish Heritage Sites Cause Uproar

February 25, 2010

Last week Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu added two key biblical sites to his list of about 150 national heritage sites. This action ensures that these heritage sites are kept in good shape for the worshippers.

Fifteen years ago, standing outside Ma’arat HaMachpela, the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs in Hebron, Ariel Sharon declared, “What nation in the world has such a monument, where all the leaders of the people are buried, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob and Lea?! All foreign diplomats should be brought here, all visiting tourists should be brought here, and all Israeli school children should be brought here! This is our roots!”

Netanyahu’s action upset the Palestinians. They threw rocks and burnt tires. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said this move could spark what he called a “religious war.” Obama, himself a Muslim, sides with the Palestinians and criticized Israel Wednesday for designating the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron and the matriarch Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem as Israeli national heritage sites.

The same day the East coast was warned to expect a strengthening storm to cause immobilizing blizzard damage. -The worst of the storm is yet to come, even as drenching rain is falling in eastern New England and snow is already accumulating and making roads slippery in the northern mid-Atlantic. Meteorologists expect the storm’s worst to take place from Wednesday evening into
Friday morning in most areas as winds, snow, rain and related problems increase in intensity.

Coincidence or consequence?

Both Rachel’s Tomb and the Cave of the Patriarch’s are very important heritage sites to Jews and Christians and require upgrading and preservation. Rachel’s Tomb is the site of her actual grave and the spot is covered by a large rock and eleven stones resting upon it, signifying the eleven sons of Jacob still alive upon her death. The Tomb of the Patriarchs is the oldest structure built by Herod and is worthy just for that little known fact. The ancient building housing the graves of Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, Jacob and Leah, according to tradition.

It was in the city of Hebron, that Avraham’s wife Sara died. It was here that David was proclaimed king and ruled for 7 1/2 years before going on to Yerushalayim and turning it into his capital.

 In 1929, Arabs broke into a Yeshiva and massacred more than 50 people in cold blood. Because of the constant Arab violence, the Jews of the city were forced to leave.

The riots were instigated by Hajj Amin al-Husseini who had been appointed by the British as Mufti of Jerusalem. The riots started on Friday afternoon, August 23rd. Hordes of marauders attacked every Jew they saw. The next Shabbos, Aug. 24th, thousands of Arabs armed with knives, axes and pitchforks launched an attack on Jewish homes. The bloodthirsty mob killed, wounded and tortured the Jews in a most barbarous manner. Three days later, the British loaded the remaining Jews on trucks and evacuated them from the city.

In 1948, the U.N. gave this city to the Arabs and no Jew was allowed to enter it. It was only in June of ’67 (the Six-Day War) that the Arabs fearing revenge, surrendered to the Israeli Army without a single shot being fired and Jews could once again pray at the Meoras Ha’Machpelah.

Jews have always lived in this holy city except when they were banned to live there by their foreign rulers.

What makes Palestinians think it belongs to them?  It was only in 1976 that they formed their movement. Before that they were Jordanians or something else.

Muhammad created his religion only in 610 C.E., after he had some dreams. This was over 4000 years after Abraham had bought a burial plot in Hebron, the Cave of Machpela, in which he buried his wife, Sarah. It clearly is, and always has been, a Jewish heritage place.

Switzerland Defends Ban on Mosque Minarets

December 1, 2009

Monday , November 30, 2009

Switzerland says the country’s new ban on the building of minarets is not aimed at Muslims but at Islamic fundamentalism.

Swiss Justice Minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf says her country supports religious freedoms.

She says Sunday’s referendum, during which voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional ban on minarets, was not “a referendum against Islam … but a vote directed against fundamentalist developments.”

Widmer-Schlumpf spoke on arrival Monday at a meeting with EU justice ministers. Switzerland is not an EU member but has close and regular contacts with the EU.

Swiss voters support barring construction of the iconic mosque towers in a surprise vote that put Switzerland at the forefront of a European backlash against a growing Muslim population.

Muslim groups in Switzerland and abroad condemned the vote as biased and anti-Islamic. Business groups said the decision hurt Switzerland’s international standing and could damage relations with Muslim nations and wealthy investors who bank, travel and shop there.

“The Swiss have failed to give a clear signal for diversity, freedom of religion and human rights,” said Omar Al-Rawi, integration representative of the Islamic Denomination in Austria, which said its reaction was “grief and deep disappointment.”

The referendum by the nationalist Swiss People’s Party labeled minarets as symbols of rising Muslim political power that could one day transform Switzerland into an Islamic nation. The initiative was approved 57.5 to 42.5 percent by some 2.67 million voters. Only four of the 26 cantons or states opposed the initiative, granting the double approval that makes it part of the Swiss constitution.

Muslims comprise about 6 percent of Switzerland’s 7.5 million people. Many are refugees from the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s and about one in 10 actively practices their religion, the government says.

The country’s four standing minarets, which won’t be affected by the ban, do not traditionally broadcast the call to prayer outside their own buildings.

The sponsors of the initiative provoked complaints of bias from local officials and human-rights group with campaign posters that showed minarets rising like missiles from the Swiss flag next to a fully veiled woman. Backers said the growing Muslim population was straining the country “because Muslims don’t just practice religion.”

“The minaret is a sign of political power and demand, comparable with whole-body covering by the burqa, tolerance of forced marriage and genital mutilation of girls,” the sponsors said. They noted that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has compared mosques to Islam’s military barracks and called “the minarets our bayonets.”

Anxieties about growing Muslim minorities have rippled across Europe in recent years, leading to legal changes in some countries. There have been French moves to ban the full-length body covering known as the burqa. Some German states have introduced bans on head scarves for Muslim women teaching in public schools. Mosques and minaret construction projects in Sweden, France, Italy, Austria, Greece, Germany and Slovenia have been met by protests.

But the Swiss ban in minarets, sponsored by the country’s largest political party, was one of the most extreme reactions.

“It’s a sad day for freedom of religion,” said Mohammed Shafiq, the chief executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, a British youth organization. “A constitutional amendment that’s targeted towards one religious community is discriminatory and abhorrent.”

He said he was concerned the decision could have reverberations in other European countries.

Amnesty International said the vote violated freedom of religion and would probably be overturned by the Swiss supreme court or the European Court of Human Rights.

The seven-member Cabinet that heads the Swiss government had spoken out strongly against the initiative but the government said it accepted the vote and would impose an immediate ban on minaret construction.

It said that “Muslims in Switzerland are able to practice their religion alone or in community with others, and live according to their beliefs just as before.” It took the unusual step of issuing its press release in Arabic as well as German, French, Italian and English.

Sunday’s results stood in stark contrast to opinion polls, last taken 10 days ago, that showed 37 percent supporting the proposal. Experts said before the vote that they feared Swiss had pretended during the polling that they opposed the ban because they didn’t want to appear intolerant.

“The sponsors of the ban have achieved something everyone wanted to prevent, and that is to influence and change the relations to Muslims and their social integration in a negative way,” said Taner Hatipoglu, president of the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Zurich. “Muslims indeed will not feel safe anymore.”

The People’s Party has campaigned mainly unsuccessfully in previous years against immigrants with campaign posters showing white sheep kicking a black sheep off the Swiss flag and another with brown hands grabbing eagerly for Swiss passports.

Geneva’s main mosque was vandalized Thursday when someone threw a pot of pink paint at the entrance. Earlier this month, a vehicle with a loudspeaker drove through the area imitating a muezzin’s call to prayer, and vandals damaged a mosaic when they threw cobblestones at the building.

Four Muslims Didn’t Read The Memo…..

Four Muslims arrested in plot to bomb New York synagogues

Four Black Muslims in New York don’t seem to have gotten the memo that the jihad terror threat is all over.

“NBC: 4 arrested in plot to bomb NYC targets: Suspects were under heavy surveillance, authorities say,” from NBC News, May 20 (thanks to Pamela):

WASHINGTON – Four men have been arrested in a plot to attack several targets in the New York City area, including synagogues, federal and local authorities told NBC News Wednesday.
Authorities said the four men have long been under investigation and there was little danger they could actually have carried out their plan, NBC’s Pete Williams reported.

Investigators say the four, described as Black Muslims from the Bronx, had planned to place bombs at various targets. But New York city police and federal agents got wind of the plot and kept the men under careful surveillance.

In fact, officials say, the men recently bought what they thought were explosives, which they put in storage lockers outside the city. But what the men did not know is that the material they bought was actually harmless, sold to them by informants posing as explosives dealers….

Two years ago, two Muslims pleaded guilty to plotting to attack synagogues in Los Angeles. But officials said that they knew of no connection between those arrests and this latest plot in New York.

More:

“FBI arrest four in alleged plot to car bomb Bronx synagogue,” by Alison Gendar and Helen Kennedy for the New York Daily News, May 20 (thanks again to Pamela):

The FBI busted a homegrown terror cell late Wednesday night as the men sneaked around a Jewish temple in Riverdale planting what they thought were packages of C-4 explosives, sources told the Daily News.
The four men also allegedly had what they believed was a working Stinger missile in their car: officials said they wanted to shoot down a plane near Stewart Air National Guard Base.

Sources said the four men were arrested after a year long investigation that began when an informant connected to a mosque in Newburg said some militants wanted to buy eplosives.

FBI agents posing as militants sold them what they thought were C-4 and a plane-downing Stinger missile.

The weaponry was all phony.

The men were arrested as they planted fake bombs in front of the Riverdale Temple in the Bronx and under cars parked in front of the synagogue.

They also allegedly planned to blow up a second synagogue, the Riverdale Jewish Center….

Honor-Killing in America

February 21, 2009

bridges6
On the eve of Valentine’s Day, a ghastly honor-killing happened here in America.

The killer is Muzammil Hassan. He was the CEO of “Bridges”, a newly founded Muslim TV channel, which he started in the basement of his home, upstate New York. Muzzammil Hassan, 44, and his wife, Aasiya Hassan, 37, founded “Bridges TV” in November 2004. They described it as a satellite news and opinion channel aimed at portraying Muslims in a positive light following the Sept. 11 attacks.

Muzammil founded his TV network with the goal to combat negative perceptions of Muslims in America.
After 9-11 Americans started to focus on Islam. Many soon came to the conclusion that Islam was a violent religion. After all, one doesn’t fly an airplane into a building on a peaceful mission! – So, they asked themselves the question: “Is Islam peaceful or violent?” The answer was: “Islam is violent.” It is a religion born out of violence, propagated through violence, and still accustomed to violence even today.

Muzzammil Hassan hoped to show Muslims in a more positive light. He wanted to change the Muslim image. That’s why he founded “Bridges TV” in November 2004. – “Every day on television we are barraged by stories of a ‘Muslim extremist, militant, terrorist, or insurgent,'” Hassan said in the 2004 release. “But the stories that are missing are the countless stories of Muslim tolerance, progress, diversity, service and excellence that Bridges TV hopes to tell.”

Did he succeed to portray a picture of peaceful Islam to America? Not according to Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz. According to him, Hassan is accused of cutting off his wife’s head at his Buffalo, N.Y., station Feb. 12. Yes, you heard right, Aasiya Z., the wife of Hassan, 37, was found dead on Thursday at the offices of Bridges TV in Orchard Park, N.Y., near Buffalo. – Her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, has been charged with second-degree murder. – Why only second degree?

The estranged wife of the Muslim television executive feared for her life after filing for divorce last month from her abusive husband, her attorney said — and was then found beheaded Thursday in his upstate New York television studio. The Hassans were married for eight years and had two children together, ages 4 and 6. Aasiya was her husband’s third wife, and the couple reportedly met on the Internet.

Benz said officers were called to the couple’s home on Feb. 6, when Aasiya Hassan had obtained an order of protection barring her husband from the home. – “He was served with divorce papers that day at the [television studio],” Benz said. “He came back to the residence and was pounding on doors and broke one window … He left the premises that night.” – Benz said Hassan’s body was found on an office floor at the Orchard Park television station.

On Feb. 12, Hassan informed police his wife was dead and told them exactly where to find her body. According to CNN reports, Hassan confessed to killing Aasiya. He has been charged with second-degree murder. Authorities are still looking for a murder weapon.

Hassan, who was arraigned Thursday, remains jailed at the Erie County Holding Center. No bail had been set and an attorney for Hassan was not listed, according to a jail spokeswoman. Hassan has a court hearing scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, Benz said.

Beheadings are more common in Hassan’s former homeland of Pakistan and throughout the Islamic world. Just a week ago, Taliban terrorists in that country beheaded a Polish geologist abducted in an effort to arrange a prisoner swap.

• An American U.N. worker, John Solecki, is currently facing a similar fate at the hands of Islamic terrorists in that country.
• Terrorists in Pakistan video recorded the beheading of American reporter Daniel Pearl.
• Terrorists in Iraq video recorded the beheading of American Nicholas Berg.
• Beheading is a common form of execution in Saudi Arabia.
• Beheading is a common way to conduct a so-called “honor killing” – the murder of a wife – throughout the Islamic world.

According to Islam, if a woman disobeys her husband she is disgraced. Therefore, when Aasiya Zubair, the wife of Hassan, resorted to the Western justice system to seek protection from her menacing husband, she had certainly broken the Islamic tenet of complete surrender to the wishes of her husband. Thus, she had dishonoured her husband, his reputation and, most importantly, the Islamic code of conduct for an obedient wife. Therefore, it is not surprising that the killer had to end her life Islamically, to restore his pride, honor and religious conviction.

The Qur’an is the basis of honor killing in Islam. 4:15:
YUSUF ALI: If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, Take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them, or Allah ordain for them some way.

This verse clearly tells that a disgraced woman is condemned to a solitary confinement till death. The alternative is the judgment of Allah. The Qur’an is not clear what that judgment of Allah could be. There are various interpretations on this. Therefore, it is a fish market: anyone may do to his woman whatever he wishes, including ending her life.

YUSUF ALI: Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in his absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them first, Next, refuse to share their beds, And last beat them but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means For Allah is Most High.

Please note that in verse 4:34 Allah permits a husband to punish his disobedient wife. It is worthy to observe that this verse says if the husband suspects or fears disobedience and rebellion; that the actual acts might not have taken place. This verse also says that the men are the protectors of women. Thus, Islamically, Aasiya was foolish enough to seek the protection of Canadian law. It was a clear violation of Qur’anic injunction of verse 4:34, a challenge to Islam. And, as per the Islamic law, if anyone violates the Qur’anic command the only punishment is death by beheading. Thus, we may conclude that Hassan has acted in the manner that Qur’an commands him.

See, in Islam, a woman is nothing more than her husband’s property. There are a number of ahadith that say that a Muslim woman’s status to her husband is no more than a slave.

Since in Islam, a woman is the property of her husband, it is imperative that the husband reserves the full right to dispose off his property in any manner he wishes.

What can I say? Beheading a person just doesn’t sound “peaceful” to me.

Just A Small Group Of Fanatics

December 12, 2008

d08b30_2

At the beginning of December, the horror of the Islamic attack in Mumbai shocked the world. Terrorists, armed with automatic weapons and grenades killed at least 101 people and wounded 287 more in Mumbai. Mumbai- formerly known as Bombay – is today’s financial capital of India. The attacks were carefully planned and carried out by devoted Muslims who were more than willing to sacrifice their own lives. The Chabad House attack, in particular, was cruel and hateful.

The coverage of the atrocity in Mumbai was disheartening but thoroughly predictable. Rather than discussing the reason for the attack, the entire focus was on who, which group or other could it be and whatever could they want? There were discussions if it was a new group, or an old one, or a made-up group, and whether or not there was a “link” to Al Qaeda. My goodness, – they called themselves “Mujahideen” (Allah’s soldiers); -the word itself explains the reason for the attack and who they are!

Yet, there was no discussion about the meaning of Jihad, because that would have meant using words like “Islam” and “Muslim” which in turn might have invited criminal legal action from the United Nations for inciting Islamophobia! It might have meant spelling out what a Mujahideen fighting in the cause of Allah (jihad fi sabil Allah) actually believes, and how he justifies violence in the name of his religion.

From the Gaza Strip, Palestinian terror groups keep firing rockets into Israel, while the world keeps talking about a cease fire. There are Fatah and Hamas fighters.

When I visited Israel’s northern border to Lebanon last month, I saw Hezbollah strongholds not far from UN posts. Hezbollah, the “party of God”, is a militant Islamic group in Lebanon.

All these different group names or “denominations” confuse the Westerners. What matters is that they all have a common goal. They are all Mujahideen, – Islamic Jihad fighters.

They believe that Allah called them to Jihad, a worldwide Jihad against western secular materialism, which they believe is the influence of Satan. (They may have a point there!)

They believe that it is every Muslims duty to be a soldier in this “Holy War” against the Western society.
The issues are made clear. Islam declares who its enemy is. According to them, the enemy is every idea, every word and every action that is in opposition to the Will of Allah. In other words – all those who fail to submit to Islam – the infidels.

Their goal is to weaken non-Islamic societies. In the case above, they want the government of India to appease Muslims and meet their demands. And once those demands, whatever they may be, are met, other demands from Muslims will be made, and will have to be met, for there is no end to this.

Now you may understand better what is happening in Israel. Demands after demands and then more demands.

But after each new assault around the world, the media tells us: ”Its just a small group of fanatics.”

What is Islamophobia?

July 9, 2008

An Israeli friend of mine recently visited the USA. He wrote that wherever he went he could feel the undercurrent of worry and fear for the future.

 

America and the entire world are in turmoil as the threat of terror looms over them and Islam spreads its tentacles over much of Europe and even the USA. It seems that Islamists have the West just where they want it to be. They are making extraordinary strides in Western societies toward criminalizing those who dare oppose the Islamist end-state — the imposition of brutal Shariah Law on Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

 

In May 2007, 57 Muslim states pressured the United Nations Human Rights Council to guarantee the right of free expression only without criticism of Islam, on the grounds of religious discrimination. Now a UN Special Reporter on “Freedom of Expression” has been charged with documenting instances in which individuals and media organizations engage in what the Islamists call “Islamophobia.”

 

Excuse me, but criticizing Jews, Christian and other religions is OK ??

 

The first time I wrote the truth about Islam in a German Forum, I was attacked as an “Islamophobe”. I had to “google” the term to find out that this was a new word for prejudice or discrimination against Islam or Muslims.

Oh my goodness, I simply tried to point out what the Qu’ran taught, even using its own verses (suras) as documentation; and because of this I was “diagnosed” as having a phobia or fear of Muslims? – The Arab News labeled “Islamophobia” as the worst form of racism and terrorism.

The English suffixes -phobia, -phobic, -phobe (of Greek origin: φόβος/φοβία ) occur in psychiatry to construct words that describe irrational, disabling fear as a mental disorder. In short, medically speaking, it is an anxiety disorder. Yes, you got it, if you criticize Islam, you are just plain crazy and mentally insane!

Jordan’s Prosecutor General has recently brought charges against Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders. According to a lawsuit, “Fitna” — Wilders’ short documentary film that ties certain Koranic passages to Islamist terrorism — is said to have slandered and insulted the Prophet Mohammed, demeaned Islam and offended the feelings of Muslims in violation of the Jordanian penal code. Mr. Wilders has been summoned to Amman to stand trial and, if he fails to appear voluntarily, international warrants for his arrest will be issued.

And so we are today witnessing the spectacle of authors’ books being burned, ministers prosecuted, documentary film-makers investigated and journalists hauled before so-called “Human Rights Councils” on charges of offending Muslims, slandering Islam or other “Islamophobic” conduct.

The fact remains that the term “Islamophobia” has one purpose – to suppress any criticism, legitimate or not, of Islam. And given the cowardice of the Western media, and the collusion of the left in banning any such criticism it is working.

The term “Islamophobia” is therefore a tool of deception that misleads the world, blackmails the West, terrorizes whoever dares to criticize Islam, fuels the anger of Muslim youth, and minimizes the danger of Islamic terrorism, merely because the laws, sacred texts, and modern practices of Islam demand the submission of culture, politics, religion and all social expression. 

In short, if you tell the truth about Islam, you are just plain nuts and should be admitted to the psychiatric ward!
