Muslims Must Acknowledge, Counteract, Violent Messages

Many in the Muslim world repeatedly express anger when Islam and its founder are criticized. This anger is understandable, especially when we take into consideration the sensitivity of talking about religious issues.

However, it is vital that the Muslim world realize that most — if not all — of the criticism of Islam and the prophet is based on what traditional and mainstream Islamic books teach. In other words, it is unfair to say that criticism of Islam is based on or motivated merely by bias against the religion, especially when we see thousands of Mosques and Islamic schools built in and sometimes supported by Western countries.

Many more limitations are placed on the rights of minorities to build their religious temples or to practice their religion freely in Muslim countries than in the West. For example, Christians are not permitted to have their Bibles with them in Saudi Arabia while Muslims have complete freedom to have the Quran in the United States and European countries.

Muslims MUST ask themselves who actually discriminates against the other: Is the West discriminating against Islam or is the Muslim world discriminating against people of other faiths? Who needs to change and show more tolerance for religious minorities, the West or the Muslim world?

In addition, when the Taliban destroyed the historical Buddha statues, the Muslim world was virtually silent, which may indicate a form of acceptance for this barbaric act. The Muslims MUST ask themselves, what would they have felt if the Buddhists, for example, destroyed the Muslim holy mosque in Mecca?

Furthermore, Muslims enjoy full freedom in the West to preach to non-Muslims and to convert them to Islam. On the contrary, Muslims in general become very furious if they discover that non-Muslims are proselytizing to Muslims to convert them to other faiths. In fact, proselytizing to Muslims is illegal in many Islamic countries.

The Muslim world needs to ask itself again: Is the West discriminating against them, or are the Muslims discriminating against the others?The Muslim world needs to realize that Muslims themselves have created the negative image of Islam in the West.

When mainstream Islamic books of Sira (biography of the Prophet Mohammad that was essentially written by Muslims) teach that the prophet took a woman as booty in the war after forcing her to see her father and brother decapitated. Do Muslims expect the world to say, “Wow, this is a wonderful model for tolerance!”

When we teach in several Islamic books that Prophet Mohammad said Allah ordered him to fight the entire world until they subjugate to Islam and in current shariah books that Muslims have to wage wars against non-Muslims and offer them to choose one of the following options: to convert to Islam, to pay humiliating tax, or to be killed, do we expect others to tell us that Islam is the religion of peace?

I wonder whether Muslims would consider such actions peaceful if non -Muslims declared war against Muslims to spread their religion and offered Muslims the choice of converting, or to paying a humiliating tax,, or to be killed.When our traditional Islamic books mention that Mohammad ordered his followers to torture other human beings, does the Muslim world expect other peoples to tell us that the prophet of Islam was sent as a mercy for mankind?

When we teach in Al-Buchary [mainstream Hadith book for Sunni Muslims] that the Prophet Mohammad married and had sex with a 9-year-old child, and that he used to bring dolls for her so she could play with them, or that he used to have sex with his nine wives in one night, do we expect the world to tell us that the prophet was a role model for mankind?

If mentioning these stories is considered an insult to Islam, then Al-Buchary — not the West — should take responsibility for insulting the religion.

When non-Muslims realize that Muslims who convert away from Islam must be killed under Redda law (killing the apostates) and that this law is approved by ALL schools of Islamic jurisprudence based on the words of the Prophet Mohammad, shall we expect them to sing praises for how Islam respects the value of religious freedom?

When non-Muslims read in our mainstream books that stoning of adulterous women is acceptable in our modern times, and that it is permissible for a man to beat his wife to discipline her, and that polygamy is permissible for men up to four wives, do we expect that the world will tell us that Islam is the religion that gave women their rights?

When non-Muslims hear fatwas from some of our leading scholars that drinking the urine of the prophet was a blessing for his disciples, should we expect words of admiration or criticism?

When we teach in our approved Islamic books that early Muslim armies invaded many countries to spread Islam and that the agreement between the second caliphate and non-Muslim minorities in these countries did not allow non-Muslims to sit while Muslims were standing and did not allow non-Muslims to raise their voices while crying when following their dead, do we expect that others to be speaking loudly about the “tolerance” of Islam?

It is important that the Muslim world realize that it needs to stop discrimination against its non-Muslim minorities and that Muslims themselves — and not Westerners — created the negative image of Islam.

Denying that the above teachings exist just makes things worse, as they are in our Islamic books.

The best way to stop criticism of Islam is to admit that violent teachings exist and that Islamic scholars must work on providing modern ways for interpreting and understanding their religion instead of accusing those who expose the problem and raise valid questions of being Islamophobes.

‘Jihad Jane’s’ Arrest Raises Fears About Homegrown Terrorists in USA

The arrest of a suburban Pennsylvania woman known by the alias Jihad Jane, who allegedly plotted with Islamic radicals abroad to kill a Swedish cartoonist, has raised fears about homegrown terrorists in the United States who may be difficult to spot.

“This woman might as well have advertised in the Washington Post,” former White House counterterrorism official and ABC News consultant Richard Clarke said on “Good Morning America” today. “It was easy for the FBI to find her, but there are other people who are much more covert.”

“There will likely be more attacks,” Clarke said. “Hopefully, they will be small, and hopefully, we can catch them early.” Colleen R. LaRose, 46, of Montgomery, Pa., was arrested in October 2009 and charged with trying to recruit Islamic fighters and plotting to assassinate a Swedish cartoonist who made fun of prophet Mohammed, according to a federal indictment unsealed Tuesday.

The FBI had kept the case secret while it looked for more suspects in the United States and abroad. The case was made public after seven men were arrested in Ireland this week, suspected of plotting to kill the Swedish cartoonist.

LaRose’s case is rare, Clark said, but it shows the capability of international dissident groups to reach out to Americans via the Internet.”This is a very rare case of a disturbed woman,” he said, but it signifies how “the Internet not only allows them to communicate, it allows them to recruit.”

Their persuasive speeches and sermons, which have been effective in recruiting men and women in the Middle East, are “beginning to work for some misfits in the United States,” he said.LaRose was arrested in Philadelphia Oct. 16, 2009, and has been in federal custody ever since, without bail. She has not entered a plea. If convicted, she faces a potential sentence of life in prison and a $1 million fine.

Her three federal public defender lawyers have yet to return calls from ABC News.LaRose could easily fit the part of a soccer mom. She was described by neighbors as an average housewife.”Oh, my God, unbelievable, I can’t believe that,” one neighbor told ABC News.

Another said the news was an “amazing, shocking surprise.”Clarke said there is likely a small group of people like LaRose. But their numbers are less of a concern than the idea that radical groups can convey their ideology via this “remote control through cyberspace,” he said.”I think it’s very small but it doesn’t have to be very large,” he said. “So it’s not so much a matter of size. It’s the fact that it’s going on.”

Authorities said LaRose’s U.S. citizenship and appearance made her appealing to the Islamic radicals she first contacted on the Internet.”The terrorists figured out that they can’t all look like Middle Eastern people, whether they be male or female,” former FBI agent and ABC News consultant Brad Garrett said. “And so they’ve put a lot of time and energy particularly into the Internet, of recruiting people.”

LaRose is better known to federal authorities as Fatima Rose or Jihad Jane. On June 20, 2008, LaRose allegedly posted a video on YouTube calling herself JihadJane and stating she was “desperate to do something somehow to help” ease the suffering of Muslims, according to news station WPVI.

The indictment, obtained by ABC News, charged LaRose with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and conspiracy to kill in a foreign country, and making false statements to a government official and attempted identity theft.

Alleged Traget Identified as Lars Vilks

LaRose is also accused of making false statements to a government official and of attempted identity theft, a passport she allegedly stole with the intention of giving to an Islamic fighter. The court papers alleged that LaRose reached out through the Internet to jihadist groups saying she was “desperate to do something to help” suffering Muslim people, and that she desired to become a martyr. She stated in her e-mails “that her physical appearance would allow her to ‘blend in with many people’ which ‘may be a way to achieve what is in my heart,'” the indictment stated.

In her e-mails with five unindicted co-conspirators in South Asia, Eastern and Western Europe, LaRose allegedly agreed to recruit men and women for jihad, to raise money for Islamic fighters, and agreed on the Internet to one jihadist’s request to “marry me to get me inside Europe.”

In March 2009, the indictment stated, she allegedly received a directive to “got to sweden… find location of [Resident of Sweden] … and kill him … this is what i say to u.” LaRose was instructed to kill Vilks in a way that would frighten “the whole Kufar [non-believer] world.”Federal officials identified the target as Lars Vilks, who had drawn Muhammed with the body of a dog.

‘Terrorists have no religion’ – Shah Rukh Khan is not telling the truth

Source: HJS

From: Mr. Narain Kataria, New York

At a public meeting held on Nov. 29, 2009, Actor Shah Rukh Khan is reported to have said that:  “Terrorism has no religion”.  This is grossly misleading and nonsensical twaddle by a crafty actor to lull Hindus into believing that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism.  It has not a whit to do with reality.  It is completely out of sync with the general view held by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists who have suffered unprecedented brutalities and savagery at the hands of Radical Islamists for the last 1400 years.

Islamic Militants

Instead of giving wide publicity to this untruthful claptrap all over India his opinion should have be dismissed with the contempt it deserves and challenged by leaders sitting in the meeting, including Home Minister P. Chidambaram.  Since people sitting in the meeting had absolutely no clue as to what the Islamic trilogy, Quran (sacred book of Muslims), Hadith (traditions based on conduct of Mohammad)  and Sira (life of Prophet Mohammed) , enjoin on Muslims,  they just listened to and accepted the crap dished out to them.  None of them, either because of ignorance or fear of violent reaction from Islamists, even raised the question that descendants of invaders, particularly Wahhabists and Salafists, are spreading the jihadist movement in India to complete the violent conquest of India for Islam.

The time has come for Hindus to develop a little bit courage and call a spade a spade.  It is an irony of fate and a matter of great disgust that none of the Hindu leaders in India came forward to challenge this statement laden with outright lies and bald assertions. Hindu leaders in India have lost the nerve completely.  Because of their squeamishness, sheepishness and lack of virility, Hindu society is undergoing torture and suffering.  At the moment Hindu society is directionless, rudderless and feels cantankerous because Hindu leaders rarely deracinate the perniciousness of Jihadi culture in public.

Hindus have been terrorized into submission by Islamists to such an extent that they never stand up and come out openly to speak the truth.  The truth is that more than 90% terrorism-related activities all over the world are carried on by Radical Islamists. Almost all the prisoners in jails in UK and USA on the charge of terrorism are Muslims. “Islamic terrorists have carried on 14,510 terrorists attack since 9/11” (a rate of about three to four a day).  (www.The Religion of Peace.org)  These attacks were not carried on by normal Muslims for money or personal jealousy but as a religious duty performed in the name of Allah.

The Bollywood Star further said that he has read the Quran.  But he did not tell the ignorant audience that “sixty-one percent of the contents of the Koran are found to speak ill of unbelievers or call for their violent conquest; at best only 2.6 percent of the verses of the Koran are noted to show goodwill toward humanity”.  (Dr. Moorthy Muthuswamy, an India-born anti-terrorism expert,  in an interview with Jamie Glazov of Frontpage Magazine at  http://frontpagemag.com/2009/12/14/the-yemeni-koran-by-jamie-glazov/. [More details about Dr. Muthuswamy’s book, including its relevance to the ongoing jihad in India and where to buy the book are given here:

Shah Rukh Khan used sophistry and subterfuge to misguide Indians (Hindus) by covering up the heinous crimes of his co-religionists, and portraying them in a very favorable light.  In his sinister attempt he was aided and abetted by anti-Hindu electronic and print media who broadcast his message as gospel truth all over India. Ostensibly, Shah Rukh was following the Islamic law of al Taqiyah which enjoins  on Muslims to lie and cheat in the furtherance of Islam. Shah Rukh fully exploited the non-comprehension of media and ignorance of the non-Muslim audience about the tenets of Islam.

It is a paradox that Muslims, converts or their descendants, who enjoy good life in India , invariably support their Arabian masters.

The following verifiable facts outright reject the statement of Shah Rukh Khan:

1. The World Trade Center attack in New York on 9/11 in which 3000 innocent people were burnt to death was carried out by agents of Al Qaeda (a militant Islamic terrorist group led by Osama bin Laden).

2. The Bali bombing on October 12, 2002 also was unleashed by radical Islamists.

3. The Madrid train bombings in Spain on March 11, 2004 in which 191 people were killed was by Muslims.

4. The suicide attack on Indian Parliament in December 2001 was launched by two Pakistani (Muslim) terrorist groups who were guided by the tenets of Islam.

5. The three Mumbai bomb blasts (i) in 1993 in which more than 250 people were killed, (ii) July 2006 in which 209 killed, and (iii) 26/11/2008 in which 170 people killed were all carried on by devout Muslims.

6. The June 7, 2005 London train bombing in which 52 people were killed was also the handiwork of Islamic terrorists.

7. Islamic terrorists in 1998  bombed US embassy in Kenya and killed hundreds of innocent people.

8. Islamic terrorists attacked in Algeria , Moroco in April 2007 and killed a lot of people.

9. A group of 45 Muslim doctors threatened to use car bombs and rocket grenades in terrorist attacks in the United States during discussions on an extremist internet chat site.  One message read: “We are 45 doctors and we are determined to undertake jihad and take the battle inside America .

10. Another terrorist suspect Najibullah Nazi, 24, from Denver was allegedly planning attacks on the New York subway in September, 2009 was also a Muslim.

11. Major Nidal Hasan proclaimed himself a “Soldier of Allah”.  He massacred 13 American soldiers at Fort Hood , Texas , and is said to have shouted “Allah-o-Akbar” before killing them.  He fully believed in Holy War against infidels.

12. US citizen David Coleman Headley (Daood Gilani) , and Canadian citizen Tahawwur Hussain Rana arrested in October, 2009 in Chicago were working for the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) –  were both Muslims.

13. Javed Ahmed and Ashiq Ali arrested by Delhi Police on August 7, 2009 were Muslims.

14. British-Iraqi doctor Bilal Abdulla convicted on conspiracy to cause murder and explosion at Glasgow airport in 2008 was a devout Muslim.

15. Five young Muslim Americans living in Washington, D.C. suburbs who were on their way to the heart of Taliban sanctuary in Pakistan to be trained as Jihadi terrorists.  They were arrested in Pakistan on December 10, 2009.  One of them Zamzam made a video quoting Koranic verses.

Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Hassan Gafoor is on record to have stated at a Press Conference that 14-16 Indians (including  Fahim Ansari, Sabahuddin and other Muslims)  were suspected to be involved in the 26/11 Mumbai attack.

A known British Mullah Mr. Anjum Chaudri on video describes the killing of innocent non-Muslim in suicide bombing as  “legitimate”.

Please also watch the following video of brutality by Islamists on Hindus in Bangladesh

One can go on and on and can write a book about Islamic terrorism around the world.

Now for the information of readers I would like to quote below some statements made by top terrorists and by noted experts on Islamic studies:

“I am one of the servants of Allah. We do our duty of fighting for the sake of the religion of Allah. It is also our duty to send a call to all the people of the world to enjoy this great light and to embrace Islam and experience the happiness in Islam. Our primary mission is nothing but the furthering of this religion.”  Osama bin Laden

Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini had said: “Holy war (jihad) means the conquest of all non-Muslim territories.

Maulana Syed Abul A’ala Maudoodi, founder of the Jamaat-e-Islami proclaimed: “The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of the mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power that gets in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy it.

Shaikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, who planned the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, funneled these words to his fellow faithful: “Oh, you Muslims … destroy their embassies, attack their interests, sink their ships, and shoot down their airplanes. Kill them on land, at sea, and in the air, kill them wherever you find them.” (Babbin, in the Words of Our Enemies, p. 60)

“Our whole struggle is for the enforcement of Sharia law”  Muslim Khan, Spokesperson for the Pakistani Taliban, responsible for hundreds of bombings, shootings and abductions.

All the above statements made by religious scholars make it crystal clear that the aim of Islam is to dominate the entire world by force and subjugate entire humanity.  In spite of massive evidence presented above, Shah Rukh Khan and the so called secular print and electronic media has the temerity to present falsity as truth.  Radical Islamists know it very well that it is a game bluffing the hateful Kafirs.  Hence this secular shibboleth has to be exposed and vehemently condemned otherwise it will destroy India from within.

A study conducted by Pew Foundation concludes that:  Majorities or pluralities in the U.S. , Canada , and every European country, other than France , judge that some religions are more prone to violence than others. And when those taking this view are asked which religion they think of as more violent, Islam is designated by large majorities in each of these countries – in Netherlands 88%, in France 87%, in Spain 81%, in Germany 79%, in Poland 77% in India 73% consider Islam is the most violent religion.

http://pewglobal.org/reports/display.php?PageID=811

From all the above it is crystal clear even to the purblind that almost all terrorists have a religion.  They are devout followers of Islam.  Shah Rukh Khan is plainly lying and trying to fool the secular intelligentsia and clueless Hindus – the majority population of India .

Musical ringtones on phones are banned

Musical ringtones on cell phones are banned according to this news report in Reuters.Hardline Islamic radicals consider music as a taboo as per Sharia.For these people,only Hadith or Koranic recitation is acceptable as ringtones.

Sacdiyo Sheeq used to love listening to Bollywood movie songs on her mobile telephone.But since hardline al Shabaab insurgents seized the southern Somali port of Kismayu, the 25-year-old’s life has changed.”Al Shabaab wants our ringtones to be only a Muslim cleric reading the Hadith or Koranic verse,” she told Reuters.

“I used to listen to my favorite Indian songs on my cell phone, but now I have just thrown that memory away.”Al Shabaab, which Washington says is al Qaeda’s proxy in the failed Horn of Africa state, wants to topple the U.N.-backed government and impose its own strict version of Sharia law.

The heavily armed group controls much of the south and parts of the capital Mogadishu, and courts run by its clerics have ordered executions, floggings and amputations in recent months.It has also banned movies, dancing at wedding ceremonies and playing or watching soccer in the areas under it control.

“We do not tolerate anything that may corrupt the people,” al Shabaab’s spokesman in Kismayu, Sheikh Hassan Yaqub, told Reuters by telephone. “We don’t allow anything that goes against our religion, especially music and sexy videos.”Ali Mahamud Yusuf, 19, fled his home in Kismayu after he was whipped in public last week by al Shabaab gunmen who had caught him listening to music and watching videos on his phone.

“I am still suffering from the 25 lashes,” Yusuf said. “They accused me of rejecting religion. I don’t want to tell you where I am now for security reasons. I am scared.”Fighting has killed 19,000 Somalis since the start of 2007, and while some residents credit the insurgents with restoring a semblance of order in some areas, al Shabaab’s strict rules have alienated many Somalis who are traditionally moderate Muslims.

But Kismayu residents said the rebel group’s latest rules on mobile phone ringtones posed yet another dilemma — since the faithful are not supposed to interrupt the Hadith (the word of the Prophet Mohammed), how are they supposed to answer calls?
