Open Public Debate of Ideas Protects Against Religious Intolerance

Open Public Debate of Ideas Protects Against Religious Intolerance A/C.3/68/L.48 Combating intolerance, negative stereotyping,stigmatization, discrimination, incitement to violence and violence against persons, based on religion or belief continues by telling another lie.
Recognizes that the open public debate of ideas, as well as interfaith and
intercultural dialogue, at the local, national and international levels can be among
the best protections against religious intolerance and can play a positive role in
strengthening democracy and combating religious hatred, and expresses its
conviction that a continuing dialogue on these issues can help to overcome existing
misperceptions;

open public debate of ideas

    Open public debate of the doctrines and practices of Islam is anathema to the authors, & sponsors of the draft resolution.  They seek to make all criticism and exposure of Islam a criminal offense. They condemn Fitna and The Innocence of Muslims which introduce some of the most important facts which should be debated.

    When the rules of public debate dictate that "...terrorism cannot and should not be associated with any
religion, nationality, civilization or ethnic group.", then the debate is closed & one sided, not open.

protection against intolerance

    Exactly how would debate & dialog protect against the effects of belief in and attempts to implement these demonic doctrines?
  • Choosing a religion other than Islam will never be accepted 3:85
  • Fight Pagans until only Allah is worshiped 8:39
  • Fight Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians until they are subjugated and extorted 9:29
  • Bring them to Islam with chains on their necks 3:110, Sahih Bukhari 6.60.80 
  • Acts of terrorism are deeds of righteousness 9:120
How would debate & dialog protect against them if we they are excluded from debate and dialog?  We can only be protected by eliminating Islam from the world, which the UN would condemn as 'profiling' & 'discrimination'. .

existing misperceptions

    Such as?
  • "Islam is a great religion of peace."
  • "Islam is an equally valid pathway to God."
  • "Islam has been hijacked by extremists."

The hypocrisy of Congressional Bigotry

The hypocrisy of Congressional Bigotry
Fatwa on Islam brought this video to my attention. I had read a little about the controversy but had not delved deeply into it. I can't let this slide by without a blast of the torch. We find Christopher S. Murphy on the floor of the House, wasting precious time.

Last week, the giant home improvement chain, Lowe's decided to pull their ads from a new show on The Learning Channel called All American Muslim. ...American Muslim families of Lebanese descent in Dearborn, Michigan and highlights how their faith affects their lives and their families.  The show is aptly titled because it shows Muslim families to be exactly what they are in this situation and millions like them around the nation; they're Americans.  They face problems just like the rest of us, the only difference is they worship in a different church

    Now Lowe's pulled these ads because one right wing anti-Muslim group in Florida show hides the "true agenda" of Islam which, according to this group, is to destroy America. 

    Now this kind of anti-Muslim bigotry isn't new, it seems like every month we are being warned by a new radical group about the creep of Shari'ah law or a peaceful Mosque is being run out of a community or a radical pastor is burning the Qur'an on television.  But it is one thing when a fringe group or a radical unhinged pastor is doing it, it is quite another when a Fortune 100 company is endorsing this nonsense.

    Now Lowe's defends itself by saying that they are pulling these ads because some of their customers have "strong social and political views on this topic".  Well, congratulations to Lowe's for acknowledging that there are some really bigoted people in the world.  That doesn't mean  that Lowe's or any other company should acquiesce to this kind of behavior.  For instance, there are, unfortunately, a  lot of people out there who still hold racist views about African-Americans, but I don't think that means Lowe's is going to be pulling its ads from television shows featuring African-Americans.   Lowe's also says that they are sorry for walking into a "hotly contested debate".  Well, what debate are they talking about?  yes, we face threats from a fringe sect of radical anti-American Islamists but there is no debate that the millions of patriotic, peace loving Muslims who live in this country have no connection to that movement and do nothing except strengthen the fabric of our nation. 

    And maybe you think that this is just a minor side show and Congress shouldn't be talking about it on this floor; I submit to you that you're dead wrong.  This is a major American company rubber stamping basic foundational bigotry against a major American religious group

    This nation was founded on the premise of religious freedom and this body should never remain silent when a group of people is marginalized just because they worship a different god.  And though its certainly got more important things to worry about like fixing the economy,  its traditionally  been in bad economic times that this kind of social marginalization has been at its worst  because people don't speak up against it. 

    Now further, this kind of bias, it endangers our national security. Thadius  McDunn*, the President's deputy national security adviser, recently said: "al-Qaeda's core recruiting argument is that the West is at war with Islam".  With this action, extremists can say "Look, we're already being run out of their neighborhoods, now we're being run off of their television sets.". 

    This kind of anti-Muslim sentiment doesn't just endanger our nation's soul, it endangers our national security.  and so, here's my message for the folks at Lowe's who made this decision, and, frankly anybody out there of sound mind who is considering getting behind this growing anti-Muslim bias: you're better than this; you know that the history of this country and of this world never ever looks kindly on this kind of marginalization that you've endorsed with your actions.  And whether its agains Irish-Americans or Jewish-Americans or African-Americans,  the history books make sure that this kind of exclusionary politics becomes a stain on the reputation of anyone who takes part in it. 

    Today I am leading a group of members of Congress calling on Lowe's to reconsider their decision and listen, we do have a lot to fear from Islamic groups that seek to do harm to America, but we have nothing to fear from a tv program called All American Muslim and we have nothing to fear from the tens of millions of peace loving and patriotic Muslim Americans who are just like those who are portrayed in that show.  This is America and we have never been perfect at living up to our founding ideals, we've gotten pretty good at calling out bigotry when we see it and stamping it out before its mark becomes indelible; this can be one of those moments. 

* I typed what I heard, rewound the video and played that segment back. I checked Wikipedia and found: Denis McDonough. Not being a cat, I can safely indulge curiosity. I ran the quote through Google and found that most of the serps went to articles about the present controversy.  This one is the Congressman's letter.  The second link I tried turned out to be the 109 page transcript of the House Security hearing. This turned up on  page 2.

Just this past Sunday, for instance, Denis McDonough, the deputy national security adviser to President Obama, made a major speech on radicalization, stating that, quote, "Al Qaida and its adherents have increasingly turned to another troubling tactic, attempting to recruit and radicalize people to terrorism here in the United States. "For a long time, many in the U.S. thought that we were immune from this threat. That was false hope and false comfort. This threat is real and it is serious." "Al Qaida does this for the express purpose of trying to convince Muslim Americans to reject their country and attack their fellow Americans,"


Another quote, from the first Muslim elected to Congress,  turned up on page 12.

Mr. McDonough noted that Al Qaida's core recruiting argument is that the West is at war with Islam.


    Representative Ellison also quoted President Obama

"Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism. It is an important part of promoting peace."


    There is a major problem in the recruit and radicalize meme: al-Qaeda and other so called "extremists groups" are normative Islam. Muslims have already been recruited.  Radicalized is a shibboleth designed to reinforce the false moderate || radical dichotomy.  Islam is not moderate and there is no moderate Islam.  There are Muslims who are ignorant of their "religious" obligations and Muslims who ignore their obligations, but there are no moderate Muslims.
For the detestable details of that Islamic obligation, turn to Reliance of the Traveller, Book O9.1.  Pay particular attention to the first and penultimate paragraphs of that section.  [See also: http://islamic-world.net/youth/jihad_articles.htm]

    Islam's normal state is war, periods of peace are the exception; for the duration of a state of weakness. Outside of incapacity, failure to attack disbelievers is a sin. If you do not comprehend that, follow this link, read the page, then scroll up to the proceeding page and read it; Jihad is undertaken on Islamic initiative and must be continuous. 

    The West is not at war against Islam but should be because Islam is at war against us.  If you do not comprehend this, open the Qur'an to 9:29.  if reality still does not sink in, follow up with Tafsir Ibn Kathir.

    Representative Ellison and President Obama are damned liars: Islam promotes war, it does not promote peace.  I direct doubters and dissenters to the links in the previous paragraph and the link two paragraphs up, to Reliance of the Traveller.  Islamic law says that the caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians.  Allah said "fight them".  Moe said that he was 'ordered to fight the people".  Al-Mughira told a Persian general: "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.'"[Sahih Bukhari 4.53.386]

    The Dey of Algiers explained to Adams & Jefferson by what right the Barbary Pirates attacked our shipping.

[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]


    From the Islamic viewpoint, peace is the condition appertaining after Islam has conquered the entire world, until then there is war.  Islam promotes peace by conquering us.  If that ain't the Acme of arrogance, what is?

worship in a different church

    Muslims are not our fellow believers in Jehovah & his son. The difference between us and Muslims is not analogous to the difference between Catholics and Baptists. Their deity commands them to participate in offensive warfare to conquer the entire world  Those Muslims who observe the five compulsory prayers curse us seventeen times every day, reminding Allah why he wants to burn us

right wing anti-Muslim

    That is argumentum Ad Hominem, a meritricious personal attack designed to denigrate one's opponent and distract attention from the merits of his facts & logic.  In the old French Parliament, the regime and its supporters sat on the right side, the populists sat on the left.  When they shout "right wing", they are labeling us authoritarians or fascists.  The popular connotation is Nazi.  But the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was allied with Hitler and raised two divisions of SS from Muslims in Bosnia. 

    The meme:  we are against Muslims, we must be bigots. What we oppose is Islam: propagation & implementation of Allah's imperatives to genocidal conquest through terrorism.  This is not about Arabs or Asians, we have no problem with Christian Arabs or Asians.  This is about an ideology which is the polar opposite of ours and denies our dignity and rights because we do not embrace it.

true agenda of Islam

    That phrase was used derisively, to dismiss, a priori, without evidence, the fact that Islam is a system of global conquest. If any doubt lingers, read Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331with particular attention to items 1 & 5.

anti-Muslim bigotry

    That phrase is another example of argumentum Ad Hominem, which dismisses, without facts & logic, informed, principled opposition to being murdered, our widows raped and our orphans sold into slavery. The academics, clergy, media personalities & elected officials who spew Ad Hominem against us should read and comprehend Noble Qur'an 9:111, 120 & 123; if they did, those who have any conscience would feel great shame.

radical group

    They attack us because they can not contest the facts we present.  Because they can not refute our facts and logic, they seek to denigrate  us in hopes or discrediting our arguments. Intelligent and open minded people can see through that tactic. Exactly what is "radical" about SIOA, UAC & Act! For America?

creep of Shari'ah

    There have been 50 trial and appellate cases involving Shari'ah in American courts.    Shari'ah allows a Muslim to divorce his wife by repeating "I divorce you." three times. Shari'ah prohibits granting custody of a Muslim child to its Christian mother. A mother who remarries loses custody of her children. Christians are disqualified from giving testimony.

Mosque is being run out

    Exactly where has an existing Mosque been run out of a community?  Objections have been raised to the Mosque proposed for Ground Zero and construction has been opposed in other areas, with good reason. 

radical pastor is burning the Qur'an

    Exactly what is radical about Rev. Terry Jones?  He opposes an ideology which demands that he be slaughtered. Is there something wrong with that?  He held a four hour trial in which the Qur'an was convicted of inciting violence and subsequently burned.  Burning the American flag is protected free speech but burning a book which commands perpetual genocidal war against us is "bigotry", "hate speech" & "inciting violence".  Kindly kiss my big, deformed, ulcerated smelly foot, Congressman!

radical unhinged pastor

    Notice how the Congressman makes repeated use of argument against the man because he can not contest the facts.  Argumentum Ad Hominem is a constant theme in his screed.

Fortune 100 company

    There he goes again; a "radical unhinged pastor" has no credibility, but  a "Fortune 100 company" has plenty of credibility so its speech must be coerced.

endorsing this nonsense

    Pulling their advertisement does not prove the assertion that Lowe's opposes Islam.  It is probable that their primary motivation is financial, related to diminishing ROI as the show's audience shrank. 

nonsense

   Resistance to the invading and occupying fifth column of an existential enemy is not nonsense. Islam caused the untimely deaths of 270*106 people  over the last 1388 years. As recently as ten years ago it murdered 3000 on our soil.  Arrogant dismissal of that  proximate & continuing threat is the real nonsense.

strong views = bigoted

    Bigots are uninformed and closed minded. Opponents of Islam are informed by Islam's canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis & jurisprudence and by information shared by scholars who have studied those sources. The real bigots are those who accuse us of bigotry.

acquiesce

    Terrible bigotry it is to acquiesce to customer complaints over advertising on a tv show which covers the enemy fifth column with the false mantle of religion, but how sensible & righteous to acquiesce to an arrogant demand letter from a Congressman.  Does anyone else recognize hypocrisy when they see it? Did these Congressmen send demand letters in opposition to Muslim boycotts of advertisers on Mike Savage & Rush Limbaugh's radio shows?  If not, they should sit down and shut up.

what debate

    The debate about Islam: "great religion of peace" or genocidal crime syndicate disguised as a religion.  Six years ago, a "Soldier of Allah", holding the rank of Major in the U.S. Army, shot and killed 13 soldiers as an act of worship in Allah's name.  Political Correctness labels his act as "workplace violence".  Kindly take PC to Hell with you.

fringe sect of radical Islamists

       Are these the words of fringe radicals:

  • 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.
  • 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) ).

  • 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.
  • 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),...

  • 8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

  • 9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success . 
  • 9:120. It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the neighbourhood to remain behind Allâh's Messenger (Muhammad  when fighting in Allâh's Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allâh wastes not the reward of the Muhsinûn
  • 9:123. O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). 
  • 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." 

Is Allah, the deity of Islam, a "fringe radical"?  Is Moe, who founded and exemplified Islam, a "fringe radical"?  Explain to me, with valid, verifiable facts, that what Allah said and Moe did ain't normative Islam.  Explain to me exactly how the genocidal conquest of India was anything but normative Islam.  Explain to me how the conquest of Arabia, Syria, South East Europe and North Africa was anything other than normative Islam.  Explain to me how the Assyrian & Armenian genocides were anything other than normative Islam.  Explain to me how the attacks on New York City, London, Madrid, Beslan & Mumbai were anything other than normative Islam.  And prove it!!!

    Damned fools and liars will assert "mis-translation", "mis-interpretation" & "cherry picking"~"out of context".  Save your voice. Parallel translations, an Arab/English dictionary and scholarly exegesis expose your malignant malarkey. 

To all of which, the arrogant anal orifices will respond, chanting in unison: "That's all Sunni, inauthentic; we don't believe in it.". Ok, try Al-Mizan, a Shi'ia Tafsir. The translation of Surah Al-Anfal & At-taubah is not available, but 2:190 nicely covers the same territory.

Although Reliance of the Traveller is Shafi'ite, it is most widely accepted as authentic Islamic Law. let the doubters & dissenters resort to the Maliki & Hanifi fiqh.

But, of course, Moe was kind and gentle, the best and greatest of men; a perfect role model for emulation. If you are stupid enough to believe that, reading his biography probably won't help, but I'll link it anyway.

    For permanent reference and easier reading, go to Amazon and buy a hard copy, they have the books except the Maliki  Risala.  Note that the Hedaya is Volume II, Volume 1 lacks the information on jihad.

http://www.florida-family.org/take_action_form.php?message=51
Here is the message Florida Family wants supporters to send to advertisers.

All-American Muslim is propaganda. Please do not support it with advertising.

The Learning Channel's new show All-American Muslim is propaganda clearly designed to counter legitimate and present-day concerns about many Muslims who are advancing Islamic fundamentalism and Sharia law.

The show profiles only Muslims that appear to be ordinary folks while excluding many Islamic believers whose agenda poses a clear and present danger to the liberties and traditional values that the majority of Americans cherish.

One of the most troubling scenes occurred at the introduction of the program when a Muslim police officer stated "I really am American.  No ifs and or buts about it."  This scene would appear to be damage control for the Dearborn Police who have arrested numerous Christians including several former Muslims for peacefully preaching Christianity.

Many situations were profiled in the show from a Muslim tolerant perspective while avoiding the perspective that would have created Muslim conflict thereby contradicting The Learning Channel’s agenda to inaccurately portray Muslims in America.

Clearly this program is attempting to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and to influence them to believe that being concerned about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show.

I encourage you to stop supporting this show with your advertising dollars.

Is the show propaganda designed to improve Islam's image?  What other purpose could it have?  Are there reality shows about Amish and Mormons? Why not?  What is so interesting about the lives of  ordinary Muslims that we should want to look through their living room windows?

    Would the show be less objectionable if it also portrayed members of Revolution Muslim, showing them preaching hate and violence on the sidewalks of New York?  Have any segments been taped showing RM or other "radicals"?  Are there any segments on American Muslims parading photographs of Khomeini?  If not, why not?

    For the other side's POV, with some hyperbole, more quotes & links and css that makes it difficult to read, visit The American Muslim:  http://theamericanmuslim.org/tam.php/features/articles/all-american-muslim.

    Murphy's screed is an archetype of Hillary Clinton's implementation of HRC 16/18: combating "defamation of Islam" * "negative stereotyping", "hate speech" & "incitement to violence"  by denouncing anyone who criticizes Islam. Contradiction is the best counter to lies, but against relevant, verifiable facts and clear logic, it needs more than argumentum Ad Hominem, which is all Murphy has to offer.

    I urge and exhort all lovers of liberty and freedom of expression to join in demanding an immediate and permanent halt to implementation of the Istanbul Process. Sign this petition to send emails to your Representative & Senators. Please share and promote the petition as widely as possible.
