Malinstruction from Bloomberg & Rauf

Lessons From the Mayor and the Imam
Gde Dwitya Arief

The article in the Jakarta Globe triggered one of my Google Alerts. Like many articles that involve Islam, it contains some outrageous statements which must be refuted. The author is off to a great start with two big lies in the last sentence of the first paragraph

[...] "together remind us that Muslims are part of America and that Islam is not attacking the West."


Muslims are part of America

    Muslims who live here are not part of America, they are part of the Ummah al-Islamiyya: "nation of Islam".  Their nationality is Muslim, not American.  America and Islam are irreconcilable polar opposites.

    America cherishes equality; Islam exemplifies Arab supremacism. The second caliph made it clear: "But the Arabs concede supremacy only to us of the Quraysh, who are the centre of the Arab world by heredity and position."

    Equality includes gender; women are not enslaved in our culture, whereas in Islam, 2:223. Your wives are a tilth for you, [...]; 4:34. Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allâh has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means.[...]  Women are chattle: fields to be plowed & planted.

    Women are deficient in intelligence; the testimony of two women is required to equal that of one man. 2:282. [...] And if there are not two men (available), then a man and two women, such as you agree for witnesses, so that if one of them (two women) errs, the other can remind her.[...] But Christians are not qualified to testify: Reliance of the Traveller o24.2[...]" (e) is religious (O: meaning upright (o24.4) (A: and Muslim), for Allah Most High says, "Let those of rectitude among you testify" (Koran 65:2),  and unbelief is the vilest form of corruption, as goes without saying);"[...]

    America cherishes our republican form of government in which the people are sovereign. Islam is theocratic and holds that only Allah has the right to rule; it rejects man made laws.

Islam is not attacking the West

    Has Islam ever attacked anyone?  How did India, Yemen, Egypt & Spain become Islamic?  They were conquered.  Those conquests were performed by Muslims who were motivated by the doctrines of Islam: imperatives recorded in the Qur'an and exemplified by the hadith.  Those curseworthy doctrines are reflected in Islamic law.  Al-Shafi'i gave it the utmost clarity. "The least that the imam must do is that he allow no year to pass without having organised a military expedition by himself, or by his raiding parties, according to the Muslims' interest, so that the jihad will only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse."

    America fist experienced Islamic aggression when she gained independence from England: the Barbary Pirates sacked our shipping.  Tripoli's Ambassador explained why.

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.

"But this is only true if we accept the charge that 9/11 was an attack on America by Islam."


attack on America

    Where did it happen?  New York City & Washington D.C. were in America when I last examined a globe; did they flee to Canada?

by Islam

    What were the 'Magnificent 19'?    Were they Catholics or Baptists?  How many of them were Buddhists?  And what was it they said while slitting throats?  "Allahu Akhbar!"    If they were not Muslims obeying Allah and emulating Moe, why did they act in his name??

"Here lies the core of the problem: the notion that Islam itself is the attacker. "

Islam itself is the attacker

    What a silly notion. Islam is a set of doctrines which dictate a predatory way of life, it is nothing without Muslims.  Believers perpetrated that attack because of what they believe: Islam.  Allah said "fight them". Moe said that he was "ordered to fight". Moe waged 86 raids & ghazwats.  Why did the Barbary Pirates attack us?  Get a clue.   

"In fact, this is what the terrorists who claim they represent Islam want us to think."

they represent Islam

    Islam is represented by its founder, who said "I have been made victorious with terror." Salafists emulate Moe. Al-Qaeda is salafist. Allah said that he would "cast terror" [8:12].  Allah said that he "cast terror" [33:26] so that the Muslims killed the men of a Jewish settlement and enslaved their widowss & orphans.  Terrorism: its what Islam is; what Muslims do.

"Islam is part of America and is entitled to the same freedom as any other religious group."

entitled to the same freedom

    Freedom of religion is for legitimate religions, not plunder cults.  Jihad is foundational & intrinsic to Islam, it can not be separated or isolated. Islam is all or nothing. 

13:36. Those to whom We have given the Book (such as 'Abdullâh bin Salâm and other Jews who embraced Islâm), rejoice at what has been revealed unto you (i.e. the Qur'ân) , but there are among the Confederates (from the Jews and pagans) those who reject a part thereof. Say (O Muhammad ): "I am commanded only to worship Allâh (Alone) and not to join partners with Him. To Him (Alone) I call and to Him is my return."  [Emphasis added.]

Offensive, aggressive warfare against disbelievers is an intrinsic part of Islam; participation in it is a religious obligation9:123. "O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you,[...] "  It is not possible that the Establishment Clause should permit that!

Do we or do we not have a right to be secure in our persons & property?  Do we or do we not have a right to life?  If we do, then there is no right to practice or propagate Islam.  If there is a right to practice or propagate Islam, then all our rights are abrogated.  Get a clue!

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."

The sanctity of our blood and property and our rights are conditional on embracing Islam.  That says it all, exposing the liars.

"The imam has been working with the US State Department in promoting pluralistic and democratic Islam across the world."



    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. 
"The Messenger of Allah stated that no two religions should remain in the Arabian Peninsula, and the Jews and Christians should be expelled from it, all praise is due to Allah. " [Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Emphasis added.]


    33:36. It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allâh and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error.[Emphasis added.]

    The fatal facts bear repetition and Imam Rauf provides the opportunity.

“Let there be no mistake, Islam categorically rejects the killing of innocent people. Terrorists violate the sanctity of human life and corrupt the meaning of our faith. In no way they represent our religion. And we must not let them define us.”

rejects the killing of innocent people

    Define innocent!  Were the passengers on those airliners and the office workers in the towers innocent or not?

5:32. Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the limits set by Allâh by committing the major sins) in the land!.

What is the meaning of that second exception? Muslims won't quote the next verse; I will.

5:33. The recompense of those who wage war against Allâh and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.

What is the meaning of "wage war against Allah"?  Tafsir Ibn Kathir has the answer for us. [...]`Wage war' mentioned here means, oppose and contradict, and it includes disbelief, blocking roads and spreading fear in the fairways. [...]  [Emphasis added] If you contradict Moe or do not believe in Allah, you are waging war against them and may be killed.   Only Muslims can be innocent!

sanctity of human life

    Moe said something, which I already quoted: "then their blood and property will be sacred to us ".  Only Muslim life has sanctity! He was  commanded to fight us until we become Muslim. 

represent our religion

    One man, dead and damned, represented Islam, defining & exemplifying it.  What part of this do you not comprehend?

Extremely good arguments based on authentic historical evidence. The world must open up its eyes before they are shut forever.
