Suspicion: Shariah Law Concept Hijacked From Jews
By Jim Croft
Anyone whose studied Islam knows that Mohammad was well acquainted with Jewish and Christian holy writ and concepts. Both religions predate Mohammadism on the Arabian Peninsula by hundreds of years. When the Jews returned from Babylonian captivity in 538BCE, some eventually settled there and established community synagogues. The Apostle Paul cut his eye teeth in Christian ministry in Arabia. (Gal 1:11). Islam was not invented till 610CE in Mecca.
The Quran has revised versions of Old Testament Bible stories and mentions Jesus more frequently than Mohammad. It’s obvious that the hallucinating prophet leaned heavily on the established religions when concocting his own. He initially had high hopes that Jews and Christians would replace their respective faiths with his. He was enraged when they didn’t, and moved his HDQ from Mecca to Medina.
This is when he turned into a nasty tempered theocrat who needed a religious device for clergy to control masses of adherents. My theory is that he and later leaders hijacked the concept of Talmudic Law from the Jews and titled it Shariah. Remember that the Pharisees of Jesus Day had add-on interpretations of the Torah that they used to control every aspect of people’s lives. Jesus declared that these manmade traditions (takanot) made the Commands of God (Tanakh) to no effect. (Matt 15:1-3 Hebrew Version of Matthew, my paraphrase)
Talmudic Law was spawned by rabbis and priests during the 70 years of Babylonian Captivity. Upon their return to Israel from exile, it was developed further. By the time that Jesus came on the scene 400 years later, the rulings were so complex that they were hardly recognizable as having Torah roots. Talmudic tradition grew more strenuous in the following 600 years leading up to Mohammad’s lifetime. Unquestionably, he encountered the concept through Arabia’s Jews.
My suspicion is that he saw a copycat version of the Talmudic concept as a way for Islam’s Caliphs, Imams, and Mullahs to keep Muslims under their thumbs. This hijacking produced Shariah Law. It’s rightly the dread of Christian nations with its’ spousal abuse, flogging, stoning, hand amputation, and beheading policies.
Jesus said the Pharisees would travel far to proselytize subjects to Talmudic Law who’d wind up twice the children of Hell as they. (Matt 23:15) Shariah creates Hell on earth for all concerned whether proponents, oppressed minorities, or jihad conquered nations.
Obama’s Strategy Unveiled to Destroy America from Within
By Sally Bode
We switched sides in the war on terror. Instead of empowering the peaceful Muslims of the Middle East, we have been arming the terrorists. Now the strategy is to bring the jihad here vs. fight them there and they won’t come here. If you switch sides as Obama has done, that you are pro-Al Qaeda pro-ISIS, why would that strategy only be for foreign policy when it may work just as well domestically? So while the government aims at getting rid of the guns of legal gun owners, to follow the plan, then the government must arm the jihadists. The guns it confiscated, why destroy them, just redistribute them. This was done to arm the terrorists as if we would never wake up to what the Obama/Bush governments were doing.
During WWII, FDR turned down accepting a boat load of Jews seeking asylum. They were shipped back and most died in Nazi extermination camps. Fast-forward to 2015: the US government is not building refugee camps here, so what is the plan, where do these Syrians go? Obviously they will go to the states with most liberal immigration statistics on record. Hello, California. No water to be held by dams you didn’t build and while the rainwater is running out to sea, we can take able-bodied Muslim men as have been seen marching into Europe? Where are the women and children? Did you know that jihad attracts Muslim all over the globe to their declared war zones? Consequently many haven’t come originally from Syria which is why they aren’t coming with their wives and children. But they don’t speak Syrian either. If they speak Arabic or Farsi, they may have a language in common. This jihad group comprises Black Muslims from north Africa to Muslims coming from Pakistan and Afghanistan and others. Again, they leave their wives and families at home which explains the “refugees” marching as a non-uniformed army into Europe.
Refugees actually would prefer to live among their own people but since funding comes greatly from Saudi Arabia and Turkey, they don’t want them. So the jihad assemblage is passed off as “refugees”. If rat poison labeled as “cake mix”, would you buy that too? There is no vetting, they have no documents. Brought here by our government, a country too broke to give retired people on S/S a cost of living wage, who will ban oil burning and coal burning furnaces which means people will freeze in cold winters back east. Wonder where the housing is going to come from any longer? While all of us must be vaccinated to prevent epidemics, who is looking at these “immigrants” shot records? Climate change is a tool in the hand of Obama to break the back of our people. Simultaneously, there may be plagues of diseases we are ill-equipped to deal with which is being seen already in Germany. These are judgments which fall quickly or even at the same time as was predicted in the apocalypse of John, the Revelator.
Obama wanted to have a internal army, just as well-funded and armed but could not find any who would take on the task of killing the pesky Jews and Christians. He is playing chess with our lives, he has with the help of the stupid-on-purpose or gullible liberals, just about gotten us in checkmate. Climate change is the means of making Americans freeze to death. It is a major killer of the homeless, without heat, it can be a major killer of those who aren’t if in which a polar vortex as we have seen where upper atmosphere heating by HAARP brought in cold we have never seen before. People froze in their cars but they had heat at home. If they shut off those who heat by crude oil and coal in conjunction with that same cold which looks like it was manipulated, you could have death without radiation poisoning the land. By now many of us know that whatever Obama says is a lie and that he is up to no good, that most of what he does is only good for the Muslim Brotherhood and not the population at large. The Muslims don’t want to live in tents and will not have to. These two things will work hand in hand.
Do you suppose if a Christian student in Egypt took a “clock” in a suitcase which looks like a suitcase bomb to school, he’s be congratulated or that he’d be shown how to sue for $15,000,000? Obama will use anything to embolden Muslims to take a country to enervated with liberalism that we can no longer think rationally. The liberal justice system clearly does not know right from wrong any longer.
If the purpose is to take the government, they won’t want the jihad army scattered very far from Washington, D.C. The goal of the Muslims is to destroy this country with our own miserable hands. Wake up and stop playing. Dr. Bill Warren has many excellent videos on YouTube detailing political Islam. Yes, it wears a mask of religion, but it is a constitution and if you think your rights matter, in short order you will not have any. In any war, some give all, and all give some. We owe it to our children to think as you can see when we pay others to think for us so we can “play”, only paints a target on our backs when they run out of money and the banks won’t fund them. But allowing the Muslims to create a revolution which the administration will not block, we become solvent. All that debt goes away like the banana republics who owe us billions. What becomes of our nuclear arsenal? When the fox has the keys to the hen house, won’t the fox, i.e., Obama use them by even “sharing” with unfortunate Muslim countries who can’t wait to join in the Middle East jihad. The scenario for the war of Armageddon is now. Wake up.
This has been a long time in coming. By shutting down our economy and keeping it stagnant, Americans are at wits ends to hold on to their poor paying jobs, hours have been cut to allow the employer not to pay for Obamacare. This is not done as a series of accidents by an inept president. He is on the phone daily with Erdogan of Turkey, to guide his stealth jihad. Obama, one who understands dark sentences, that if you turn many away from God and paint the White House in the colors of the rainbow to say how “Gay” our society has become, that you take God’s hedge of protection away from us. This “hedge” has saved America before but unless Americans repent, that hedge is in shambles now. We reap the fruits that we many not have planted ourselves but many have led the generation under us, down the primrose path to doom. This is why Darwinism or evolution is a real attack on us, God is our hedge, but only to those who believe. Make the first chapter of the Bible read like “once upon a time”, any you have pulled the rug out from under us. This government with three branches of government has depended upon the fourth invisible branch of the press which is in bed with the Liberals, the media has made the coming reign of terror possible. Terror is the means which Muhammad chose. We have not named the “war on terror” it is the defense of the West against Islamic jihad. When you cannot name an enemy but only name a tactic, it blames the spoon for making you fat. This is just stupidity.
I do pray for my country and the first prayer is that we would repent, that God would rebuild our hedge of protection. Now, I see that not as a hedge as a country, but around brave individuals who will tell the truth and preach the Gospel all at the same time. American has turned their back on God but then there are no atheists in the trenches. Then even an atheist will at last be able to hear the voices of the church if within the church are those who have studied history, Islam and the other social experiments which lead to despotism: socialism and communism fueled by Darwinism.
Call out to a God who still hears, Jesus never fails. Invite Him in your heart. Read the Bible. It is to those who believe, a high tower against the enemy. God’s promises are not without power to save even today.
America and Muslims
By Sally Bode
Avi Lipkin, an American born Jew, moved to Israel as a young man and made Israel his home. He married an Egyptian-born Jewish woman named “Rachel” who as an Arabic speaker, has worked for the state of Israel listening to Arabic broadcasts and telling the world what the Arabs tell one another which is quite different from what they tell the West.
Avi Lipkin did not like the Christians of America and told his wife: “The Goyem hate us.” “Goyem” is a term Jews use for which we would say “Gentiles”. Having been raised in Egypt and seen the Coptic Christians endure similar persecution to the Egyptian Jews, she exclaimed: “You don’t know anything! Christians believe in the same God of the Bible unlike those of the Muslim faith, who hate both Jews and Christians and are likewise called “the people of the book”. Avi listened but it took, some time to really change his opinion to that of his wife, noting that the true descendants of Abraham are those who love and those whose lives are devoted to hate, are the religion of God’s enemy, Avi now spends time speaking to churches so for the purpose of American revival to help Israel’s survival. He has great wit and insight living in the Middle East.
It is hard sometimes as I focus on the evil which Islam has done to not hate Muslims. It does help me to remember that the first victims of Islamic hatred begins with their own children who are taught from early on to hate both Jews and Christians. Hating is not healthy, it creates its own brain-chemistry, such that makes it like an “atomic bomb exploding all the time in my mind” as one of my Muslim friends has described his mental health. This robs a person of peace and when you do not have a calm mind, can you make decisions which are sound? When a person’s mind is running on pure adrenaline, memories are sketchy at best as in emergency mode, it is like operating in safe mode on a computer. Not even the screen looks normal.
Critical thinking is something we use in the West to determine even if a person is guilty before a jury of his peers. Our Founders endowed the common man with this right, though many of us cannot scarcely afford it in this economy and many employers do not cover wages for their employees who must serve on a jury. In the West, the benefit of what was said by God in the book of Isaiah gave a flavor to the religion of the Jews and later the Christians, that we are supposed to understand. There is nothing wrong with questioning if there are good and consistent answers. This is from Isaiah 1:18 though God invites us into dialogue with Him. “Come let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they will be white as snow; though they are as red as crimson, they will be like wool.” Questioning is not a virtue in the Islamic faith. The God of the Bible is not an abrogator, He does not change, nor does Jesus Christ who we know is the same yesterday, today and forever.” The Koran is full of abrogation, kind and tolerant verses done away with by later stern and harsh ones. So to understand the Koran by how it works when Muslims find themselves in a position of strength, just look at chapter nine. If you have only time to read one chapter, then this tells you enough and explains the constant wars against Jews and Christians we see today and in the history of Islamic jihad and their holy wars, if we care to look.
Now Avi Lipkin in his study of what Arabs would likely do, made a prediction before we saw it happen. I suppose based on the migration of Muslims to Europe, and the constant wars and displacement of people since the Arab Spring, he predicted that there would be huge numbers of Muslims coming to America as refugees. He said that the Saudis would pay for it and that this would require new housing starts and that these housing starts would be good for the American economy. The part about the Muslims coming to American shores is correct, but I disagree in this point, that it will be beneficial to the American economy based on what is happening in Germany where German citizens are pulled out of their homes to make way for the Muslim immigrants. In Turkey, Muslim refugees were confined to camps and living in tents. Many Syrians have even lived in such camps in Syria. Both Syria and Turkey get really cold in the winter so this is no picnic in the park for sure. But German winters are severe, though they have nothing on cold winters in comparison to what Russian people have lived with. As to what is happening to the displaced Germans, I cannot report on this as I haven’t found articles to describe this yet.
So what will happen in America? Based on the revulsion of Muslims on houses built by the Kafir (non-Muslims) in Germany, only if the Muslims build the houses and apartments will they be good enough to keep Muslims happy. So if jobs go to anyone to build houses in America to house these refugee Muslims, it will be the immigrant Muslims, not the American contractors, carpenter, electricians, plumbers, concrete masons, who will benefit though some will at first.
What we have seen and will likely be the case, that the transportation and the food and housing costs are not being on the tab of the Saudis with deep pockets as Avi Lipkin supposed, but to destroy further the economies of the Christian nations whose faith has been undermined by secularism and Darwinism. So for our abandonment of God, God has promised as He did to the Jews that they would suffer wars, be invaded, suffer loss and be uprooted. We should expect that though all of us do not deserve this, that our nation surely had strayed out from under God’s protective covering by despising His councils, His laws and the relationship with Him we were called to and our nation was dedicated to.
What the Saudis will fund is the building of mosques and jihad while continuing to send large endowments to universities so that their sons and grandsons now born here will be ready to be those who will govern America in its future. They do not want to see the Christian West propped up even if Muslims within them suffer which they will as this added burden of immigrants to the United States and to Europe, along with fighting home-grown terrorism and that of the newly imported jihadis, will be a disaster on the already depressed economies of these nations. It will help the sale of guns but when Americans must choose between self-defense and paying rent, car payments, food or buying shoes for their children as most already live one pay check to another, unless they can pay over time on credit, they may buy guns but not afford ammunition. As the Saudis will fund jihad and even on American soil, mosques becoming armories as they frequently have been shown to be in the war in Iraq, is to be expected. That the Obama administration has a supply of ammo that has been bought up by Homeland Security, is jaw-dropping. Obama has spoken about an internal army inside America and as he finds not enough fit for this task or virulent enough to kill, kill, kill, he is importing an army of Muslim jihadis to fulfill this promise.
Obama has made mincemeat of our laws and our Congress is weak and divided, they do not understand what Islam will do to the United States nor are they listening to voices from the Middle East to educate them. They have turned off this advise as says Robert Spencer of jihadwatch.com and Brigitte Gabriel, Noni Darwish, Brother Abdullah al Araby, Walid Shoebat, Avi Lipkin and the second generation bloggers who in the wake of 9/11 have educated themselves on Islam. A new voice to pay attention to which offers much insight is Bill Warner in his many videos on YouTube on Political Islam. We must encourage our hearts by standing with those who resist the spread of Islam.
At the same time, we must educate ourselves of why our schools are failing and our culture has become so immoral and pray for revival in America, in Europe and in the rest of the world as well as for the prayers of the persecuted church.
Darwinism has undermined our faith, even those who attend church may not believe the Bible fully. If you can take the story of Creation and turn it into “once upon a time”, can you really take any of it as seriously as we should?
As if there isn’t enough to learn, but in case you would diversify your ability to stand in these last days, to know that God did indeed create this world as He said. We must stay strong in our faith and as it is weakened, follow the advise of scripture to strengthen ourselves. There are many voices which are reputable and give a good testimony of God’s creation and the Biblical flood that can inspire us and help us to witness to Darwinists as well. As many Darwinists are virulent in their hatred second only to that of Muslims, that the two would become allies of one another is certainly what we see. Liberalism in politics is in bed with Islam and we see it in our own government giving many positions of power to those who are Muslim Brotherhood. Until Darwinist also see that this paints as much a target on their back as it does for Christians and Jews, and that their arguments are false, they will continue to say “all religions are equal”. Not all religions worship the true God, some like Islam, have mad Satan, who calls himself “Allah”, theirs. Allah wants to be worshipped and will not be content with atheism or agnostics either. These are what the Muslims find among us as “useful idiots” and are just as likely to be killed in time as we who are Christians or Jews. Even Muslims do not have respect towards cowards or traitors to their own culture. Until we can also help our neighbors and friends and alright, let’s be honest, even our enemies see that it is in everyone’s best interest to believe in the God of the Bible, our witness will be incomplete. Of note among Christian apologists for Creation are Dr. Carl Baugh, Dr. Don Patton, Dr. Kent Hovid, Ken Ham. Then there are the scientists who became creationists such as in astro-physics, biology. One needs only to Google or to search on YouTube for excellent lectures on the subject of why Creation is the best description of the fossil record and not evolution.
However the rotten house of Islam though it should collapse under its own weight nor Darwinist will do likewise as despite evidence to the contrary, men and women cling to these things because their deeds are evil and they know not the God who made them, they do not know His love or His grace and we must be ready to give an answer to any for the faith within us. We are told to “study to show ourselves approved” but that does not mean only the scriptures but to be wise and find those arguments raised against us by Darwinism and by Islam to do as the men of old of faith like Daniel who shut the mouths of lions.
It is like if one were to wash their windshield, washing just one part is insufficient. So also are we like guns without bullets if we do not know arguments we will need in the future to help us win souls or to strengthen the resolve of others to do what we cannot do ourselves.
It seems like a daunting task. But we must recall as St. Paul stated “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
IS SHARIA ISLAMIC LAW COMPATIBLE WITH THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION?
By Abdullah Al Araby
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson courageously stated that he could not support the election of a practicing Muslim to the presidency of the United States. The reason was that he doesn’t think Islam is consistent with the American Constitution. Is Mr. Carson justified in his statement? Let’s examine the facts.
Islam is more than a religion; it is an all-encompassing way of life with regulations for every facet of life. The life governing rules are embodied in what is known as Sharia Law. These laws are based upon the Quran, the Hadith (Mohammed’s sayings,) and the Sira (Mohammed’s biography). How does Sharia Law compare to the American Constitution that outlines the values and institutions that we hold dear?
The United States was built on the Bill of Rights, established by the founding fathers that came here to escape religious oppression. The Constitution gives citizens the right to express themselves as they please. We are free to criticize any governing elected official or policy; and are free to worship any way that we choose and to speak our minds about our own religion or that of others. Americans can act anyway that they deem appropriate as long as we don’t violate the rights of others.
What would happen to this freedom in an Islamic state? Would the citizens be granted the right to choose the religion they want, or would they be forced to accept Islam according to the Quranic verse: “If any one desires a religion other than Islam, never will it be accepted of him, and in the hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost.” (Qur’an 3:85). How about the right of a Muslim to change to another religion? Is that a non-controversial matter as it is in our Bill of Rights? Or, would it mean that whoever changed from Islam would be charged with apostasy which is punishable by death? Mohammad said “Whoever changes his religion, kill him.” Hadith Al Bukhari Vol. 9:57.
The USA’s system of government gives citizens the right of self-rule through duly elected officials of their choice. These representatives write the laws that best concur with the wishes of the people to maintain their way of life. We are to even have a say in what amount of taxes we are to pay and how the funds are to be spent.
One important principle in this great system is the separation of church and state. Islam, however, is actually a political-religious system. It’s built on an opposing concept, for “Islam is a religion and a state.” According to Islam, Sharia law is the principal sources of legislation: “We have sent down to thee the book in truth, that you might judge men as guided by God.” (Qur’an 4:105). If Sharia is the basis for law, what are some of the rules and regulations that might be eventually imposed under a Muslim president? Here are just a few examples:
- Stealing: punished by hand amputation (Qur’an 5:38)
- Adultery: punished by public flogging (Qur’an 24:2)
- Drinking: punished by 40 or 80 lashes (Al Bukhari 8:770)
- Resisting Islam: punished by death, crucifixion or the cutting off of the hands and feet (Qur’an 5:33)
- Blasphemy against Allah punishable by death (Qur’an 5:33-34)
- Blasphemy against the Prophet Mohammad: Death – even if the accuser repents (Qur’an 33:57)
- “Sodomy (homosexuality): Death for the person committing the act, as well as for the one receiving it. (Qur’an 4:15-16 and Sunan Abu Dawood 38:4447)
Under our system in the United States, there is not to be any discrimination among citizens based on gender, race, color, or religion. Would Islam treat men and women equally?
- It teaches that men are superior to women (Qur’an 2:228)
- It gives male heirs double portions of inheritance as that given female heirs. (Qur’an” 4:11)
- When testifying in court a man’s witness has the twice the value of a woman’s. (Qur’an 2:282)
Would Islam treat non-Muslims fairly?
- The Quran warns Muslims not to befriend Jews or Christians? (Qur’an 9:30)
- The Quran imposes “Jizya” (tribute tax) on Christians and Jews. They pay the extra Jizya tax just for the right of existence in Islamic culture (Qur’an 9:29)
- Mohammad says that a Muslim cannot be legally executed for killing a non-Muslim. “ Al Bukhari Vol. 9:50
My fellow Americans
The threat of Islam is real. Muslims are taught from youth to give first allegiance to the religion of Islam above any non-Muslim nation. In essence, for most any fundamentalist Muslim, citizenship in the USA is apt to be merely a stepping stone to see Sharia Law established as the law of the land. To elect a Muslim President of the USA, carries great risks.
Get this message around. Keep America free, for all to enjoy.
Muslim Guilt Trip Trojan Horse
By Jim Croft
Marty Skinner asks: Syria has had a civil war for almost 5 YEARS. Why all the “refugees “NOW and why so all of a SUDDEN and why in such VAST NUMBERS?
With an Honors degree in History and a lifelong student of the subject, I smell a rat. This is a highly organized, well oiled, mobilized invasion of Muslims and Jihadists into the Western World. It’s been in their plan for a long time. Momar Gadhafi predicted and explicitly stated that Muslim domination of Europe would happen without a conventional war and he said it 30 years ago. 95% of these economic “refugees” many who have cellphones are men between the fighting ages of 20 and 40. Very few women and children from everything I’ve seen.
Odd that the 5 wealthiest Arab States including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait are taking “no refugees” thanks and feel quite self righteous about it. No guilt what so ever? They are even laughing at us for doing so.
Ask yourself, why would Germany Belgium, Holland, France, Sweden and others want to destroy their own cultures from within? It doesn’t make any sense? If this keeps up Europe will be burning daily within a very short few years if not months. Civil war in the streets between civilizations. Muslims vs Kefirs, that is to say, everyone who is not a Muslim.
Unfortunately, the reality is that Muslims are just not like any other immigrants. They don’t want to assimilate, they want to set up separate enclaves and implement Sharia Law. Another problem is that while the civilized West rightly abhors violence, conversely Muslims daily display their love of violence. They live it and embrace it. In many Muslim countries public beheadings and stoning to death for adultery for example. It’s a part of their culture precisely because Islam is, dare I say it, a death cult.
Islam is a supremacist, totalitarian, bigoted, fascist political ideology masquerading as a religion. It literally means “submission”. The Quran MANDATES death for blasphamy, for adultery, for apostasy, for family honor, for being gay, Jewish or a Kafer as well as ten other “crimes” many not even considered to be so in the West. Death for drinking alcohol or taking illegal drugs for example. Why let in vast numbers of these brainwashed people especially men of that age when past experience has already demonstrated the tragedy, not to mention the financial, social, and political costs of rampant multiculturalism in Europe. Ordinary citizens are against this immigration but strangely, their governments are not?
Someone or some organization is pulling some strings here is what I see. Is this invasion part of the New World Order’s plan to depopulate the planet? Maybe there’s not even any such an organization but it’s all over U-tube and other social media. The major media are implicit in selling gullible citizens of the West the righteousness of the “refugees” cause and openly siding against Western culture.
One drowned child’s picture in the right places sparks outrage and sympathy world wide for the movement and resettlement of vast numbers of Muslims. However the implementation of Sharia Law, No Go Zone ghettos in most countries in Europe and Muslim rape gangs go unreported. In radical Islamist countries honor killings, beheadings, stoning’s, cutting off limbs, whipping and torture, pedophilia, child bride marriages, rape and misogyny go unreported DAILY and are dismissed as culturally ingrained.
Where is the indignity and the outrage over people doing this every day to their own populations? Yet a staged picture a drowned baby on a beach sparks a world outcry? Muslim birthrates are 8 children per family while Europeans average 1.4. When these current millions bring in their multiple wives, children and extended families 85% of whom live on state benefits (England’s experience) you can multiply their number by at least 10x, maybe 20x or even more.
By 2050 Europe will be Muslim dominated just by demographics alone. When their numbers are sufficient they will legally vote in their own kind and then Sharia Law. Europe as we know it will be lost forever. Two thousand years of civilization will be destroyed by the same fanatical bearded, bigoted, brutal, boneheaded, belligerent bastards who are now slaughtering their own kind and blowing up ancient and irreplaceable world heritage buildings, monuments, books, manuscripts and other historically significant art treasures in Iraq, Syria and other conquered territories.
Canada (America) should not get sucked into this quagmire of political correctness just to show how polite, civilized. politically correct and Canadian we are. We should learn a lesson from our Australian counterparts.
Gad and Arshad: A tale of two men from two different worlds
By Mounir Bishay, Los Angeles
Gad and Arshad are two young men in their twentieth. What brings them together is their hate for ISIL, and the desire of doing something to tell others about it. However there are many things that set the two men apart. They differ, in their ethnic and religious backgrounds, in the place where they live, in the way their respective communities accept them, and in the tragic circumstances that await one, compared to the honor that surrounds the other.
Each of the two men has a remarkable story to tell. Let’s ponder some of the highlights.
Gad is a Coptic Egyptian Christian from the village of Nasereyya, Governorate of Menia in Upper Egypt. He is a new graduate at just 22 years old and works as an English teacher in Junior high schools.
Gad found himself, overnight, subject to investigation and imprisonment by the authorities in Egypt for taking 20 seconds video tape of 4 students mostly 15 years old. The students were playfully making fun of ISIL who pose as religious people but in reality they kill, slay, and burn their victims alive. The tape was later considered an insult to Islam and mocking the way Muslims pray. But it is clear from the consequences of events that the purpose of the tape was mocking ISIL and exposing their hypocrisy. Those who were accused of making the tape did not mean to distribute it. The tape was distributed by the Muslims of the village after they found it by chance.
Soon after the tape was distributed, Muslims of the village went on a rampage destroying and burning the homes of the Christians while occupants were still inside. Security forces failed to respond to calls by the Christian asking for help.
The Coptic Christians in that village are living now in fear. Students don’t feel safe going to school. The board of education ordered Christian students to stay home for fear of being harmed. This is a very critical time for students to miss school. The school year is approaching the end and final exams is about to start.
As it always happens, even before the court issued its ruling, the mob has already made their demands that the 5 Christian families leave the village as a condition of returning to calm.
On April 17, 2015, a council meeting made of prominent people in the village along with representatives of government officials, took place to bring reconciliation. The council made a decision that the teacher leave the village after the court announces its verdict, and regardless of what is the verdict.
Still, the final future of Gad is unknown. The video that lasted only about 20 seconds which was meant to be criticism of ISIL became evidence against him of insulting Islam. The punishment in such cases depends on the judge who can get out of legal penal code, using instead Sharia law which differs drastically according to the school of jurisprudence. Thus the punishment could be double or triple or can even reach capital punishment. However, even before the judge pronounces the ruling, a punishment is already in place for Gad which is departure for ever from the place where he was born and raised.
In contrast, Arshad is a Muslim young man of a Pakistani heritage. Arshad (29) was born in London, England and lives there. He works as an aspiring comedian. Unlike Gad, Arshad receives a great honor from the British authorities. The English Police employs Arshad on their staff to visit schools in London, and expose ISIL and appeal to students to abandon religious extremism.
What Arshad does is talk about the issues that are dividing the British community in dealing with the Muslim community. His tool is poking fun of the issues. In one of his meeting in a school, Arshad asked the audience that those of Muslim background lift up their hands. About one third raised their hands. Then Arshad said, “Wow, with this we can take over the country, Sharia law is in the way!” but then, he quickly said that he was only kidding. Arshad purpose was to make fun of what people believe that Muslims plan to take over the country and impose Sharia Islamic law on everybody. On another occasion a young woman asked if she can give him a hug. After the hug, Arshad screamed “you stole my wallet!” still that was Arshad’s way to dispel the belief that Muslims are less honest than others. But, Arshad’s criticism was never looked on as insulting to anyone but as a tool to fight insults.
No doubt that Arshad does a great service for his community by correcting many misconceptions thru laughter. But the greatest service Arshad does is to his country, England, by trying to stop young British males and females from leaving England to join ISIL. It is estimated that about 600 have left England to Turkey and from there to territories controlled by ISIL.
An important factor for the success of Arshad to reach the hearts and minds of his audience is that his message is personal, sincere and clear. He often talks about issues in his own life and in the lives of many who listen to him. He uses humor, rather than violent protests to express his feelings
The story of Arshad started after the police authorities have seen YouTube tapes made by Arshad of community situations he dealt with, using his funny style, and ending it with positive constructive message. They thought to add him to their staff to spread that message of reconciliation between the Muslim community and the British society.
A thought came to my mind: what would happen if we switch places of operation between Gad and Arshad? How about if Gad, the Coptic Christian, lives and works in London, and, if Arshad, the Pakistani Muslim man, lives and works in Upper Egypt? Would both experience the same problems/ rewards as they do today? My answer is in the negative. It is the community with its values and ideals that makes all the difference.
A Call to the Free World: BAN POLITICAL ISLAM
By Mounir Bishay
This article is not about Islam as a religion or most of the world’s Muslims. It is about combating an extreme version of Islam that is defined as Political Islam that claims to be the only true representation of the religion of Islam.
Political Islam and its hateful tentacles are as dangerous for the welfare of American Muslims as it is for non-Muslim citizens. Most global Muslim populations reject Political Islam as they are more apt to be victimized by its irrational fanaticisms than are non-Muslims.
The distinctions between the religion of Islam and Political Islam must be made clear. Any action against Political Islam must not be interpreted as an action against the religion of Islam or world’s Muslims.
The situation is very similar to the 30 years of trouble between the Protestant and Catholics of Northern Ireland. When the Protestant British government said it was at war with the Catholic Irish Republican Army (IRA), no one took offense. Citizens of all faiths instinctively understood that the IRA was not one and the same as Catholicism; just as Political Islam is not one and the same as the religion of Islam.
I am calling upon the Western democracies to Ban Political Islam. Political Islam is incompatible with Western democracy. The belief of Political Islam is that Islam is a religion and a state. The ultimate goal of Political Islam is the submission of the entire world to Caliphate domination. This demands Shariah Law as the law of the land. If that becomes a reality, all citizens have some very difficult choices to make: Give up their birth religion by converting to Muslim; or exit their homeland; or accept 3rd class Dhimmi status. This status renders human rights practically nonexistent and penalizes with a prejudicial Jezya tax that must be paid. The only other choice is death by the sword.
There is no time to waste in uniting to identify the real enemy, because the various factions of Political Islam are getting more violently aggressive every day. The latest news from Al Qaeda leader Ayman Al Zawahiri is the formation of a Jihadist organization intended to erase the borders drawn by the British in the 20th Century that divided the Muslims of South Asia from those of the rest of Asia.
In the Middle East, the IS Movement is gaining new ground daily by barbarous leaps that are noted for beheadings, crucifixions and slave auctions of Christians, Yazidis, and Shia Muslims. In many other parts of the world militant Political Islam organizations such as Nigeria’s Boko Haram are terrorizing Christians through mass rapes, kidnappings and by selling school age girls in sex slave markets.
The implications of IS’s progress toward this end is at last registering on the radar of the governmental representatives of free nations including those of the USA. The recent gruesome slaughters of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff has caught the attention of America’s, the UK’s and Europe’s national leaders. At last, they are seeing that their open society policies invited the infiltration of Political Islam’s extremists. The justified fear is that the infiltrators will join existing sleeper cells that will strike with multiple coordinated attacks at the right moment to cripple their nations.
Muslims do not have that choice under Political Islam and its interpretation of what is called the Islamic Umma. It is the collective body of Muslims worldwide that demands loyalty to Muslims over loyalty to the nation of residence. For Political Islam, the motto is, “Take your Muslim brother’s side whether or not you believe that his actions are right or wrong
Due to the Umma policy, after September 11, 2001 when the United States got involved in two wars against two Muslim countries, the service of Muslim Americans became complicated. Muslim scholars in the United States were hesitant to issue a blanket statement accepting the notion that American Muslims could fight in a war where the USA is fighting a Muslim country. They issued a vague opinion approving the principle, but qualified it with the condition that the conflict must meet the Islamic standard of a “just war.” This is actually another way of saying “no, it is not acceptable” for American Muslims to fight an Islamic country because Muslims are never allowed to raise weapons against a fellow Muslims.
This must have played a role in 2 major incidents committed by radicalized Muslims who were in the US Army. On March 2003 two days after the United States invaded Iraq, American Muslim soldier, Hasan Akbar killed 2 colleagues and wounded 14 others. Subsequently, on November 2009 at Ft Hood, TX, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire killing 13 high ranking military personnel and wounding 31 others.
However, this should not be an excuse for a generalized condemnation of all American Muslims serving in the armed forces. More than 3,500 US Muslims were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. As of 2006, 212 Muslim-American soldiers have been awarded Combat Action Ribbons for their service in Iraq and Afghanistan, and 7 gave their lives for the USA.
With all of this considered, the governments in the West would be free to open investigations on any person, mosque, and organization that propagate incendiary speech and materials. Those who enlist in the armed services could be thoroughly investigated to insure that they do not have Political Islam sentiments or any type of terroristic inclinations. This would also apply to anyone filing for citizenship with automatic denial for ties with questionable organizations and contacts.
The underlining fact is that Political Islam is on the move. The IS threats to humanity that are now posed are greater than Nazism and Communism ever were. The seriousness of the situation emphasizes the need for developing a strategy and enacting plans of action to deal with problem as soon as possible. Delaying at this will put the West at a disadvantage from which it will be very difficult to recover.
Political Islam must be separated from Islam as a religion. The seriousness of these political views are not just because they are against the ideals that the West holds dear, but also because the views are like cancer that can spread in every direction ruining everything in its way. “BAN POLITICAL ISLAM” is my cry for America and the West. The sooner it is done, the better. If you fail to do so now, the cost later will be infinitely higher.
PUNISHMENT FOR NOT GOING TO JIHAD AND KILLING KUFFAR IS HELL FIRE
Most muslims think that if they pray five times, fast, give zakat and do Haj they will avoid hell. Not so fast. They miss the most important duty and requirement of being a muslim ,that is going to jihad and killing kafirs.
Muslims are ordered to carry out Jihad and kill infidels:
Fighting jihad (and killing kuffar) for for Allah is ordained for you. It is in your best interest even if you hate it.
Kill the infidels wherever you find them.
Any muslim who ignores this supreme commandment of Allah to kill will be punishment severely (in grave and in hell fire) .
You who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth for jihad for Allah , you cling heavily to the earth?
If you will not go forth to fight in the cause of ALLAH, HE will punish you with a painful punishment.
ALL MUSLIMS OTHER THAN JIHADIS HAVE TO DO HELL TIME
119.71 (Hilali and Khan) There is not one of you who will not go to hell; this is with your Lord; a Decree which must be accomplished.
ONLY WAY TO AVOID HELL AND GO STRAIGHT TO PARADISE IS TO KILL AND GET KILLED
The only guarantee for avoiding hell and going to paradise instantly anf copulate with virgins is to carryout jihad, kill and get killed.
Paradise is guaranteed for those who kill and get killed for Allah. It is a binding on Allah.
3.169: Those who are killed in Allahâ€™s way are not dead but they are alive and are enjoying bounties provided by the lord.
PUNISMENTS AND REWARDS IN ISLAM
Infidels will suffer grave torture and will be in hell forever.
Bad/non practising/heretic muslims will suffer grave torture and long hell time. Whether they will be put in paradise eventually , will be decided on judgement day
Muslims who prayed, fasted, gave zakat and did Haj but did not participate in Jihad and killed kuffar will suffer torture in grave and will do some hell time before being sent to paradise. Their hell time will be decided on judgement day
Those muslims who participated in violent Jihad will not suffer any grave torture nor will they do any hell time. They will proceed to paradise after judgement day.
Those muslims who killed and got killed for Allah will avoid grave and helltime altogether. They will instantly go to paradise and start copulating with virgins. They will also be allowed to nominate 70 of their near and dear ones for paradise.
PROPHET DIED WHILE MAKING LOVE TO AISHA
Allah gave our prophet the best death a horny man can dream of, he died while making love to the one he loved to make love most..
PROOF THAT HE DIED DURING AN EXPLOSIVE MOMENT
Ibn Hisham page 682:
….that he heard Aisha say: “The apostle
died on my bosom during my turn: [of having sex with]. It was due to my ignorance and extreme youth that the apostle died in my arms
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 144:
He died on the day of my usual turn ( of having sex) at my house.
Allah took him unto him while his head was between my chest and my
neck and his saliva was mixed with my SALIVA.
Aisha is blaming her youth and ignorance for causing Prophet’s death . Aisha’s eager cooperation excited Prophet immensely which lead to a wild session of foreplay and tongue action followed by intensive sex . Due to her inexperience she could not see the danger of an old man performing sex with a young woman during his serious illness. Timely slowing down or stopping him could have saved his life. Prophet had an explosive climax which his old and sick heart could not handle and went in a cardiac arrest. She saw him die and slump on her bosom during his moment of extreme pleasure. (which is not uncommon in such cases). That is why she felt guilty of causing his death..
HE DID NOT RECITE KALIMA AT DEATH
The hadiths indicate that instead of having kalima on his mouth like a good muslim during his last moments , prophet’s mouth was busy in tongue action and French kissing.
His body must have stiffened as he died during his pleasure moment in an “as is” condition. The fact that they tried to cover him with triple shroud indicates an embarrassing bulge which they must have tried to even out by extra layers of clothing. They wouldn’t have wanted all to know what their prophet was up to when he died.
Dawood, Book 20, Number 3147:
Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) was shrouded in three garments made in Najran: two garments and one shirt in which he died.
Apparently neither the three clothing layers nor the reported delay in burial helped in the situation and he was buried quietly.
