This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Pat Condell Speaks up for Free Speech, Join Him!

Pat Condell has once again turned his wit on the opponents of free speech. He specifically condemns the persecution of Geert Wilders and Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.  Austria and Holland are not the only countries with hate speech laws that can condemn innocent critics of Islam.  When warning of an existential threat becomes a crime, justice is a dead issue

    Condell rips into corrupt judges and corrupt, cowardly appeasers and journalists.   But if we remain silent, we, too will be complicit in the death of justice and liberty.  We must rise up  as one with a loud voice demanding the dropping of charges against the  innocents unjustly accused and  reimbursement for their legal expenses.  We must demand the repeal of hate speech & blasphemy laws.  We must tell the United Nations to go to Hell with its resolution "Combating Defamation of Religions", soon to be voted on by the Third Committee.

    Free to Believe has the best petition against the resolution:

 

I affirm the universal human right to freely choose and express an individual’s religious beliefs.

Accordingly, I urge fellow Member States of the United Nations to focus on protecting the fundamental freedom of individuals to express their religion or beliefs and to oppose the so called “defamation of religions resolutions.”

These resolutions seek to criminalize dissenting ideas and peaceful expression of non-favored religious beliefs. The “defamation of religions” resolutions are in direct infringement of the guarantees to free speech and belief found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

For these reasons, I ask all Member States to vote NO on “defamation of religions resolutions.”

The Pope's Vain Hope

My Google Alert for UN Interreligious Dialogue  triggered on  UPI NewsTrack TopNews which revealed that Pope  Benedict XVI issued an apostolic exhortation in which he called upon Islamic countries to reciprocate in religious freedom.

    The full text of  "Verbum Domini" is available at Zenit. It begins with an index, which indicates that it is rather long.  The section of interest to me comes just before the conclusion.

The Word Of God And Interreligious Dialogue

The value of interreligious dialogue [117]
Dialogue between Christians and Muslims [118]
Dialogue with other religions [119]
Dialogue and religious freedom [120]

In this dialogue the Synod asked for a deeper reflection on respect for life as a fundamental value, the inalienable rights of men and women, and their equal dignity. 

life as a fundamental value

    It is a fundamental value to us, but not to Islam.

  • 2:212. Beautified is the life of this world for those who disbelieve, ...
  • 3:185. ...The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing). 
  • 4:74. Let those (believers) who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter fight in the Cause of Allâh, and whoso fights in the Cause of Allâh, and is killed or gets victory, We shall bestow on him a great reward. 
  • 6:32. And the life of this world is nothing but play and amusement. ...
  • 9:38. ...Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter.

inalienable rights

Sorry, those are for Muslims only.

  • Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 :
    ...Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have."

equal dignity

  •  Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 :   ..."I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us...

Our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims and we have no rights; a great basis for dialogue indeed. Reliance of the Traveller, book o, Chapter 4 details the indemnity to be paid in the case of manslaughter. Few things reflect Islam's inequity better than this provision of Islamic law.

  • o4.9 ...

    The indemnity for the death or injury of a woman is one-half the indemnity paid for a man.

    The indemnity paid for a Jew or Christian is one-third of the indemnity paid for a Muslim. The indemnity paid of a Zoroastrian is one-fifteenth of that a Muslim....

 

All the same, dialogue would not prove fruitful unless it included authentic respect for each person and the ability of all freely to practise their religion. Hence the Synod, while encouraging cooperation between the followers of the different religions, also pointed out "the need for the freedom to profess one's religion, privately and publicly, and freedom of conscience to be effectively guaranteed to all believers":[381] indeed, "respect and dialogue require reciprocity in all spheres, especially in that which concerns basic freedoms, more particularly religious freedom. Such respect and dialogue foster peace and understanding between peoples".

 

authentic respect

Yeah, right; our blood & property ain't sacred to them, is there something more we need to know before we tell them where to go?

freedom of religion

  • 3:85. And whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.

What does Islamic law say about religious liberty?

  • o11.5

    -6- are forbidden to openly display wine or pork, (A: to ring church bells or display crosses,) recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals and feastdays;

    -7- and are forbidden to build new churches.

  • o11.10

    The agreement is also violated (A: with respect to the offender alone) if the state has stipulated that any of the following things break it, and one of the subjects does so anyway, though if the state has not stipulated that these break the agreement, then they do not; namely, if one of the subject people:

    -1- commits adultery with a Muslim woman or marries her;

    -2- conceals spies of hostile forces;

    -3- leads a Muslim away from Islam;

    -4- kills a Muslim;

    -5- or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam.

Islamic doctrine holds that only Islam is true, that all other belief systems are false or defiled by demonic interjection.  Where Allah's writ runs, Christians are persecuted; that is not going to change.  Islamic doctrine is fixed & immutable.  The relationship between Islam and Christianity is predator : prey.

    As far as Muslims are concerned, they alone have the truth, you have error & doubt.  There is only monologue, no dialogue; it is a one way street.  Religious freedom is for Muslims only. Dignity & rights are for Muslims only. 

    We have a desperate need for leaders, elected, academic & ecclesiastic who know the truth about Islam and have the courage to stand up and declare it.  The rest of us need to be sufficiently informed so that we can detect lies when we hear or read them. 

    For the comprehensive course, read Craig Winn's The Prophet of Doom. It is only 1000 pages long. yet it combines the most essential elements of the Qur'an, hadith, sira & tahrik.  For the short course, read Suhas Majumdar's  Jihad, The Islamic Doctrine of Permanent War.

    If you are willing to read primary sources, you can access the Noble Qur'an which includes bracketed expressions from tafsir and the translator's notes. I gave you a link to the page containing 2:190 because its footnote includes the most honest definition of jihad. You can use navigation links on that page to access any part of the Qur'an.  Sahih Bukhari and three other hadith collections are available at USC-MSA. I gave you a direct link to the first saying in the Book of Jihad. Navigation links are at the top of the page.

    If you prefer to take it all in at once, try Tafsir Ibn Kathir, which combines the Qur'an with relevant hadith and commentary. Each page has a link to its successor. I suggest beginning with Surah 8, continuing through Surah 9.

Spiegel: Trapping Wilders

Spiegel tried to entrap Geert Wilders in a confrontational interview.  The interview is displayed in three parts, the link is to the second part, which contains the quote excerpted below.  Navigation links to the other two parts are at the end of the article.


SPIEGEL: Are you familiar with this quote from the Prophet? "But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to be their king, bring them here and slay them before me"?

Wilders: I have read many such passages.

SPIEGEL: The Prophet cited in this case was Jesus, from Luke, Chapter 19, Verse 27. Do you admit that there are also calls for violence in the Bible?

Wilders: There are brutal passages in the Old Testament; the New Testament takes a more moderate approach. But a key difference between Christianity and Islam is that Muslims believe that the Koran contains verbatim the word of God; it is written in the imperative. This precludes a comparison with Christianity.


    The interviewer sprang Luke 19:27 on Wilders without identifying it.  The tactic is cherry picking,  secondary to argumentum Tu-quoque.  That is an attempt to utilize Jesus Christ as a straw man, attributing to him meaning which he did not intend. Jesus was relating the parable of the talents, not issuing a command.  Examine the context.

http://kingjbible.com/luke/19.htm

11And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. 12He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. 13And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. 14But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us. 15And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. 17And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. 18And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. 19And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities. 20And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin: 21For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow. 22And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow: 23Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury? 24And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds. 25(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.) 26For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him. 27But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

28And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.

    Nothing in the Bible and nothing Christians have done whether in obedience  or disobedience, subtracts anything from the absolute evil of Allah's conquest imperatives.  8:39 & 9:29 are imperatives, clear commands to wage offensive warfare.  Reliance of the Traveller, the handbook of Islamic law describes the religious obligation to wage war against disbelievers in these words: "Jihad is a communal obligation," meaning upon the Muslims each year. [o9.1]

    In that same section, we learn that jihad is obligatory: "If none of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all, then everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there was a possibility of having performed it. ".  The apologists for Islam will assert that jihad means jihad an-nafs: struggling with your conscience. Unfortunately for them, o9.0 defines it differently: "Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. ". 

    The imperative to wage war upon Jews & Christians, found in Surah At-Taubah, is codified in o9.8: "The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4)...".

     The imperative to wage war upon pagans, found in Surah Al-Anfal, is codified in o9.9: "The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax ...". 

    Those grasping at straws to defend Islam will claim that those imperatives are anachronisms, out of date and not being followed by modern Muslims. They can not explain the fact that Muslims are attempting to reconquer Israel.  They can not explain the fact that most of the wars currently being fought have Muslims as the aggressors. 

    Those same apologists can not explain the sermons in which Imams rant about conquering and dominating Israel, America and Rome. They can not explain the signs carried in European demonstrations declaring "Islam will dominate the world".  But I can: Islamic supremacism & triumphalism flow directly from the Qur'an & hadith. Examine these titles from Ibn Kathir's Tafsir, click them and read the explanation of the verses.

    Islam's apologists in the media, academy & government pretend that Islam is a "great religion of peace".  They can not disprove the clear evidence found in Islam's canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis & jurisprudence so they resort to logical fallacies.  Islam is not a race, it is a predatory way of life. Opposition to predation is not racism.  They are fond of implying that Islam's critics are Nazis or Fascists; they will not acknowledge the fact that we oppose Islam because it is intrinsically evil and a real, immediate & persistent threat to our security and liberty.

Obamination: Treason in Indonesia


The White House alluded to President Barack Hussein Obama's prepared remarks:

Indonesia: Follow-Up To The President’s Cairo Speech

That post did not bear out its promise; I found nothing but boiler plate about economic development & education projects.  The following quotes were mined from an AP story carried by AOL News.

"Relations between the United States and Muslim nations have been frayed over many years. As president, I have made it a priority to begin to repair these relations,"


The relationship between Islam and the United States is predator : prey and can never be anything else.  Muslims are under a "religious obligation"
(fard al-kifaya) to conquer and subjugate the entire world. That relationship began when we gained independence and the Barbary Pirates sacked our shipping.

    Jefferson & Adams asked Tripoli's Ambassador by what right they attacked us. His answer speaks volumes. Too bad nobody will listen.

The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Barbary_War


When caliph Umar sent the Muslim army to Persia, a similar question was asked and answer returned. This quote comes from Sahih Bukhari 4.53.386.

Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:-- "Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master."


No lying demagogue is ever going to tell you about that.  They seek to conceal, not to reveal the fatal facts of Islam.   Examine Rodwell's translation of 9:29 and compare it to Reliance of the Traveller, o9.8.

  • Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in God, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle have forbidden, and who profess not the profession of the truth, until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled.
  • The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax

You have seen Allah's command to fight "people of the book" and the resulting Islamic law. What part of that is not clear to you?  What part of it requires explanation?  What part of it is subject to distortion, twisting, perversion or misinterpretation?  What did Allah command Muslims to do? What does the caliph do and why?  What did the Barbary Pirates do and why?  What does al-Qaeda do and why?  What is the difference between al-Qaeda and Islam?


"We can choose to be defined by our differences and give in to a future of suspicion and mistrust. Or we can choose to do the hard work of forging common ground and commit ourselves to the steady pursuit of progress."


    Is treachery apparent to you yet?  There is no common ground between predator and prey.  Islam will attack us and continue to attack until it conquers and subjugates us.


"We have faced false starts and setbacks," Obama said. "There should be no illusions that peace and security will come easy."
"Let there be no doubt: We will spare no effort in working for the outcome that is just and that is in the interest of all the parties involved: two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security."


    `Obama never fails to outrage me when he blathers about Israel.  The outcome he describes is an absolute impossibility, always was and always will be.  Israel can only obtain peace by ushering her enemies into Hell.  There is no alternative to total, absolute victory.  While there are Muslims, there is no peace.

    Politicians can not acknowledge objective factual reality because they view the existential necessity of eliminating Islam with the same revulsion engendered by the Holocaust.  They can not comprehend the fact that, while the Jews were innocent, Islam is perpetual war; genocidal conquest.  If vampires were real instead of mythological, they would be Muslims.  Muslims are people who have been conquered and co-opted to conquer others.  Politicians can not comprehend that fatal fact. 

    Politicians will not tap the wide and deep river of knowledge which flows through Islam's canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis & jurisprudence.  They will not read Allah's demonic conquest imperatives contained in Surahs Al-Anfal & At-Taubah.  Those are 8:39 & 9:29.  They will not read Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 which confirms those imperatives.  They will not read 13:41 to learn how Allah gradually gives the land to Muslims in conquests, irreversibly. They will not read 2:191 to learn that Muslims must drive out those who drove them out.  They will not read 7:167 to learn that Allah will continually send someone to torment the Jews. Neither will they read Ibn Kathir's tafsir of that verse to learn that Jesus will return to lead the Muslims in the final genocide.

    Politicians will not read Sunan Abu Dawud  14.2477  to learn that Allah, on Moe's account, took a "special interest" in the "people of Syria". Neither will they read Sahih  Muslim Book 041, Number 6985 to learn that the Muslims can  not obtain Paradise without first completing the genocide of the Jews.

    Allah promised the Muslims victory. They conquered the Levant, later Jews recovered a tiny fragment of their ancient patrimony, in contravention of Allah's promise in 13:41. Muslims will never tolerate that. They must obey 2:191. They must complete the genocide. They have no alternative if they wish to obtain Paradise and avoid the fire.  Politicians can't comprehend this; if they could, they would never acknowledge it.   They must pretend that peace is possible. It ain't; unless Islam is eliminated.

 "America is not and will never be at war with Islam,"
"All of us must defeat al Qaeda and its affiliates, who have no claim to be leaders of any religion - certainly not a great, world religion like Islam,"


In 1801-1805 and 1815 we had to send in the Marines to stop the Barbary Pirates from attacking our merchantmen.  Now Islam has twice attacked  our mainland. President Obama will not recognize the fact that Islam is at war against us and reciprocate.  Al-Qaeda is Islam; Islam is al-Qaeda; it is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Qur'an is their constitution. Allah is their goal. Shahid is their highest aspiration.  Barack Hussein Obama and the traitors who proceeded him in office refuse to acknowledge objective factual reality.  They misidentify and misrepresent the enemy.

    Obama is a liar. Islam has not been hijacked, perverted, distorted or twisted. It is what it is: a war cult created for Moe's personal emolument through the profession of piracy & plunder. If you harbor doubts, read 8:1, 8:41 & 8:67. Who gets the spoils?  What was Moe's motivation?  Moe, speaking for Allah, commanded Muslims to fight pagans until only Allah is worshiped.  He commanded them to fight "people of the book" until they are subjugated and make annual extortion payments.  Moe said that our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims until we submit.

    What does the caliph do?  Reliance of the Traveller, Book o, Chapter 9 tells us. o9.8 says he makes war upon Jews & Christians until they are subjugated and pay extortion.  O9.9 says that he fights all other peoples until they become Muslim.  Rational and honest persons can connect the data points and draw logical conclusions. Politicians will not.

Parallel Tracks to Censorship

This table is intended to show the similarities between the current draft resolutions on Elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief, combating defamation of religions and the 2009 draft protocol to ICERD.

    These documents equate racism & opposition to Islam, conflate the right of free expression with an imaginary right to be shielded from criticism and subordinate it to that fiction. The resolutions are not enforcible; they only lend immoral support to local blasphemy laws which are used to persecute minorities. The protocol, if passed, signed and ratified, will have the force of law as part of ICERD.

    These are three parallel tracks condemning criticism of Islam; one of them will criminalize it.  The United Nations, driven by the OIC, are trying to make criticism of Islam a criminal offense.  In essence, anything that offends Muslims will become illegal. Reliance of the Traveller, Book o, Chapter 8.7 lists twenty forbidden acts and attitudes which entail apostasy subjecting the perpetrator to the death penalty. Jews & Christians living as dhimmis under Islamic domination are subject to the same provision, by reference in o11.10 -5- or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam.

o8.7: Acts that Entail Leaving Islam

(O: Among the things that entail apostasy from Islam (may Allah protect us from them) are:

-1- to prostrate to an idol, whether sarcastically, out of mere contrariness, or in actual conviction, like that of someone who believes the Creator to be something that has originated in time. Like idols in this respect are the sun or moon, and like prostration is bowing to other than Allah, if one intends reverence towards it like the reverence due to Allah;

-2- to intend to commit unbelief, even if in the future. And like this intention is hesitating whether to do so or not: one thereby immediately commits unbelief;

-3- to speak words that imply unbelief such as ``Allah is the third of three,'' or ``I am Allah''-unless one's tongue has run away with one, or one is quoting another, or is one of the friends of Allah Most High (wali, def: w33) in a spiritually intoxicated state of total oblivion (A: friend of Allah or not, someone totally oblivious is as if insane, and is not held legally responsible (dis: k13.1(O:) ) ), for these latter do not entail unbelief;

-4- to revile Allah or His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace);

-5- to deny the existence of Allah, His beginingless eternality, His endless eternality, or to deny any of His attributes which the consensus of Muslims ascribes to Him (dis: v1);

-6- to be sarcastic about Allah's name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat;

-7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it;

-8- to mockingly say, ``I don't know what faith is'';

-9- to reply to someone who says, ``There is no power or strength save through Allah''; ``Your saying `There's no power or strength, etc,' won't save you from hunger'';

-10- for a tyrant, after an oppressed person says, ``This is through the decree of Allah,'' to reply, ``I act without the decree of Allah'';

-11- to say that a Muslim is an unbeliever (kafir) (dis: w47) in words that are uninterpretable as merely meaning he is an ingrate towards Allah for divinely given blessings (n: in Arabic, also ``kafir'');

-12- when someone asks to be taught the Testification of Faith (Ar. Shahada, the words, ``La ilaha ill Allahu Muhammadun rasulu Llah'' (There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah) ), and a Muslim refuses to teach him it;

-13- to describe a Muslim or someone who wants to become a Muslim in terms of unbelief (kufr);

-14- to deny the obligatory character of something which by the consensus of Muslims (ijma`, def: B7) is part of Islam, when it is well known as such, like the prayer (salat) or even one rak'a from one of the five obligatory prayers, if there is no excuse (def: u2.4);

-15- to hold that any of Allah's messengers or prophets are liars, or to deny their being sent;

(n: `Ala' al-din' Abidin adds the following:

-16- to revile the religion of Islam;

-17- to believe that things in themselves or by their own nature have any causal influence independent of the will of Allah;

-18- to deny the existence of angels or jinn (def: w22), or the heavens;

-19- to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law;

-20- or to deny that Allah intended the Prophet's message (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be the religion followed by the entire world (dis: w4.3-4) (al-Hadiyya al-`Ala'iyya (y4), 423-24). )

There are others, for the subject is nearly limitless. May Allah Most High save us and all Muslims from it.)

Muslims demand that those laws be enforced so that revealing the fact that terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament of Islam or that Muhammad was a pedophile, plunderer and terrorist will be a criminal offense punishable by fine and imprisonment.

    The United States officially rejects the concept of defamation of religions, yet it is a sponsor of A/C.3/65/L.32, which substitutes negative stereotyping with essentially the same denotation.  Note the "deep concern" expressed about negative stereotyping & association with terrorism. 

concept
A/C.3/65/L.32 A/C.3/65/L.46  Draft Protocol
Conflation
Also emphasizes that freedom of religion or belief and freedom of
expression are interdependent, interrelated and mutually reinforcing, and stresses
further the role these rights can play in the fight against all forms of intolerance and
of discrimination based on religion or belief;
Reaffirming that all human rights are universal, indivisible, interdependent and
interrelated,
In this connection, both special report urged the Committee on Human Rights to consider adopting additional rules on the interrelations between freedom of expression, freedom of religion and non-discrimination, particularly in the form 'a general comment on Article 20.
incitement
Condemns any advocacy of religious hatred that constitutes incitement to
discrimination, hostility or violence, whether it involves the use of print, audiovisual
or electronic media or any other means;
Reaffirms the obligation of all States to enact the legislation necessary to
prohibit the advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement
to discrimination, hostility or violence, and encourages States, in their follow-up to
the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and
Related Intolerance, to include aspects relating to national or ethnic, religious and
linguistic minorities in their national plans of action and in this context to take
forms of multiple discrimination against minorities fully into account;
The fundamental characteristic common to all events to discredit certain religions and insult people or groups who have religion in common, commonly called "defamation of religions" and that all phobias and religious discrimination is incitement to racial hatred For religious and address the issue of defamation of religions in a universal manner, it is essential to reduce this discussion to the international instruments on human rights. In particular, provisions relating to incitement to national hatred, racial or religious are already part of the main international instruments of which the vast majority of countries are signatories. This anchoring of defamation of religions in specific legal provisions is likely to confirm that no incitement to racial hatred and religious standard is already integrated in the vast majority of national laws in all regions.
terrorism
Also emphasizes that no religion should be equated with terrorism, as this
may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion
or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned;
Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and
wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;

symbols
To exert the utmost efforts, in accordance with their national legislation
and in conformity with international human rights law, to ensure that religious
places, sites, shrines and symbols are fully respected and protected in a
non-discriminatory way, and to take additional measures in cases where they are
vulnerable to desecration and destruction and to bring to justice individuals
responsible for committing acts of desecration or destruction;
Calls upon all States to exert the utmost efforts, in accordance with their
national legislation and in conformity with international human rights and
humanitarian law, to ensure that religious places, sites, shrines and symbols and
venerated personalities are fully respected and protected, and to take additional
measures in cases where they are vulnerable to desecration or destruction;

respect
To take all necessary and appropriate action, in conformity with
international standards of human rights, to combat hatred, discrimination,
intolerance and acts of violence, intimidation and coercion motivated by intolerance
based on religion or belief, as well as incitement to hostility and violence, with
particular regard to members of religious minorities in all parts of the world, and to
reflect on such incidents with a view to formulating effective measures to promote
respect for freedom of religion or belief;
Also urges all States to take all possible measures to promote tolerance
and respect for all religions and beliefs and the understanding of their value systems
and to complement legal systems with intellectual and moral strategies to combat
religious hatred and intolerance;

stereotyping
&
Defamation
Expressing deep concern at all forms of discrimination and intolerance,

Obamination: Treason in Mumbai

Thanks and a tip of the hat to Logan's Warning for alerting me to Barack Hussein Obama's al-Taqiyya. Indian Express carries the story of Obamination at Xavier's College, where a Muslim student asked for his views on jihad.

"I think all of us recognise that this great religion (Islam) in the hands of a few extremists has been distorted to justify violence towards innocent people that is never justified,"


Lets break it down point by point.

great religion

extremists

  • Muhammad bin Abdullah, founder of Islam
    • 8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do. 
    • 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. 
    • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
      Narrated Anas bin Malik:
      Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have." 
    • Sahih Bukhari 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).

Moe defined Islam with his recitation and set the standard with his Sunnah. Normative Islam is extreme; there is no extremism over and above it.

distorted

    The standard of Islam is open on the face of the Qur'an & hadith. What is distorted about it?  "Ordered to fight" & "made victorious with terror" are the standard, not distortions.

justify violence

    What did Allah say about "fighting" ?  What did Moe say about it?  "Fight them until", "ordered to fight".  How do you justify offensive wars of conquest?  In Mecca, outnumbered, in a position of weakness, Moe preached tolerance & forbearance. In Medina, as he accrued an army, he preached defensive & retaliatory warfare.

  • 22:39. Permission to fight is given to those (i.e. believers against disbelievers), who are fighting them, (and) because they (believers) have been wronged, and surely, Allâh is Able to give them (believers) victory 
  • 2:190. And fight in the Way of Allâh those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allâh likes not the transgressors. [This Verse is the first one that was revealed in connection with Jihâd, but it was supplemented by another (V.9:36)].

Click the link to 2:190, read the translator's footnote and the surrounding context. While the verse relates directly to defensive warfare, the definition of jihad in the footnote is anything but defensive.

    Al-Anfal 39 & At-Taubah 29, quoted above, command offensive, not defensive warfare. When they were revealed, Moe's army had grown in numbers and skill, he was ready for the conquest of Mecca and neighboring kingdoms & empires.  Ibn Kathir's Tafsir describes these as orders "to fight". 

  • The Order to fight to eradicate Shirk and Kufr
  • The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah
    • This honorable Ayah was revealed with the order to fight the People of the Book, after the pagans were defeated, the people entered Allah's religion in large numbers, and the Arabian Peninsula was secured under the Muslims' control. Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination. The Messenger sent his intent to various Arab areas around Al-Madinah to gather forces, and he collected an army of thirty thousand.

Those abominable imperatives are codified in Shari'ah: Reliance of the Traveller, Book o, Chapter 9, Sections 8 & 9.

  • o9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

    The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,

    "Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled" (Koran 9.29),

    the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace).  After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

    "I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,"

    this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

    o9.9

    The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi' (y21), 6.48-49) ).

    Reliance of the Traveller o9.1 defines the religious obligation of offensive conquest.  The closing paragraphs of the section convey vital information.

  • In the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) jihad was a communal obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina. As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.

    The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, "Jihad is a communal obligation," meaning upon the Muslims each year.

    The second state is when non-Muslims invade a Muslim country or near to one, in which case jihad is personally obligatory (def: c3.2) upon the inhabitants of that country, who must repel the non-Muslims with whatever they can).

What does this mean: "meaning upon the Muslims each year"?   Muslims are required to mount at least one military expedition against kuffar in every year. The question is answered with extreme clarity by this quote from Al-Shafi'i.

innocent people

    In Islam's view, only Muslims are innocent. All others are rebels against Allah who must be warred against.  Scroll up to the quote of Bukhari 1.8.387 and read it again. Our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims until we become Muslims. We only obtain rights by becoming Muslims.  That should be a clue for you.

    Muslims love to quote Surah Al-Ma'idah 5:32, which says that killing one innocent person is equivalent to killing the entire population of the world, but never quote the succeeding verse. That is because 5:33 prescribes hudud for those who "wage war" against Allah. It says that they can be crucified, killed, mutilated or expelled.  But it does not define "wage war". Ibn Kathir's Tafsir fills in that gap for us. If you do not believe in Allah; if you are not a Muslim, then you are waging war against him, subject to the punishments listed in 5:33.

The Punishment of those Who Cause Mischief in the Land 
`Wage war' mentioned here means, oppose and contradict, and it includes disbelief, blocking roads and spreading fear in the fairways.


    President Barack Hussein Obama is an accursed liar, a traitor to the human race as well as the nation over which he has been elected to preside.  He lies about the nature and identity of our sworn existential enemy and demands that we tolerate its existence & perpetual aggression. 

    It is not possible for a sane and sentient person, a lover of life & liberty, apprised of the damnable doctrines & practices of Islam, to tolerate the perpetuation & propagation of a belief in divine mandate to conquer, subjugate, enslave, dispossess and kill everyone who does not immediately submit to Islam.

    Islam must be confronted and resisted, both ideologically & militarily. President Barack Hussein Obama won't do it. He must be removed from office  and replaced by someone who will.
