Islam's a religion of peace - daily headlines notwithstanding, and more ...Topics: Understanding Islam
From Jihad Watch - two must-read nuggets on Islam that are sure to get your blood boiling:
In other words, never let it be said that Muslims let reality get in the way of their worldview and their agenda to turn bullshit into words of wisdom to be forced upon an world unwilling to submit. (Continue reading here ...)
Fresh pile of taqiyya from the OIC -- also known as the Islamic organization fervently trying to impose "blasphemy laws" on the UN. Interesting, too, how, far from spending any significant amount of time condemning the Mumbai jihadists, the OIC is more outraged that the world is rightfully associating their violent actions with the jihad.
"OIC: Islam, the religion of peace, tolerance and compassion," from the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, December 2:With the multiplicity of terrorist attacks perpetrated recently by deviant and fanatic individuals, the General Secretariat of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has noticed a tendency of a section of the media, to interpose the word "Islam" in reporting these incidences.Gee, why is that? Could it be because these "deviant and fanatic individuals" are constantly quoting the Koran and the words of Islam's prophet Muhammad? Could it be because they are constantly threatening infidels with death and destruction (or at least dhimmitude) -- in accordance with Islamic law? Could it be because they make clear time and time again that their gripe with their neighbors -- be they Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, or Jews -- is a product of a well known, well documented, Islamic supremacist world-view?
Muslim World League calls for "a strategic plan to introduce Islam as a solution to major problems facing humanity"As Spencer points out in his peace, Islamists have a clear and consistently stated agenda; it's leaders, in spite of all their rhetoric about peace and tolerance, have no intention of adapting to our culture, rather, to have us adopt to theirs. Their objective is to silence non-Muslims regarding Islam, rendering us mute and defenseless in the face of the global jihad, much by using our own laws against us.
And, natch, as "a religion that promotes peace, freedom and tolerance."
Among the elements of this strategic plan:
(1) "They should also make use of their good relations with Western countries to enact laws preventing the denigration of Islam and Muslim personalities"
(2) "Islamic organizations have been asked to monitor school syllabuses in non-Muslim countries to prevent distortion of facts about Islam and Muslims."
"Forum calls for strategic plan to reach out to non-Muslims," by P.K. Abdul Ghafour for Arab News, December 4 (thanks to Paul):JEDDAH: An international conference organized by the Muslim World League has called for a strategic plan to introduce Islam as a solution to major problems facing humanity and as a religion that promotes peace, freedom and tolerance.
The three-day conference, titled "Introducing Islam to non-Islamic countries: Reality and aspirations," stressed that non-Muslims living in Islamic countries should enjoy all of the rights enjoyed by Muslims.
Really? All of them? In this they run counter to the provisions of traditional Islamic law regarding the subjugated status of the dhimmis, as mandated by the Qur'anic injunction that they pay the jizya (poll tax) "with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued" (9:29).
"The subject peoples," [i.e., the dhimmis] according to a manual of Islamic law endorsed by Al-Azhar University in Cairo, must "pay the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya)" and "are distinguished from Muslims in dress, wearing a wide cloth belt (zunnar); are not greeted with 'as-Salamu 'alaykum' [the traditional Muslim greeting, 'Peace be with you']; must keep to the side of the street; may not build higher than or as high as the Muslims' buildings, though if they acquire a tall house, it is not razed; are forbidden to openly display wine or pork . . . recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals or feastdays; and are forbidden to build new churches." ('Umdat al-Salik, o11.3, 5).
"All of the rights"? Really? Is this a statement of reform? Somehow I doubt it, in light of their other statements -- particularly about restricting free speech (see below).It said Muslim countries must introduce Islam to non-Muslim countries as part of efforts to improve foreign relations.
So this is avowedly a political effort, not solely a religious one."They should also make use of their good relations with Western countries to enact laws preventing the denigration of Islam and Muslim personalities," said a final communiquÃƒÂ© issued after the conference.
Ten to one they consider "denigration of Islam" to be any honest examination of how jihadists use Islamic texts and teachings to justify violence and supremacism. Why do I say that? Because we have seen it before. Here are four examples (one, two, three, four) of Islamic groups objecting to non-Muslims making accurate statements about Islam or Muhammad -- statements much like ones jihadists make without encountering serious opposition from their fellow Muslims.
The goal, in other words, is to silence non-Muslims regarding Islam, thus rendering us mute in the face of the global jihad. Mute and therefore defenseless. (Continue reading here ...)
These Islamic links reveal the Islamic agenda to suppress opposing views, institute punitive sharia (Islamic law), and prey on other communities for converts, all for the purpose of global domination.
CBN News: Stealth Jihad, The War Within Our Borders (stealth jihad like that conducted by CAIR)
The media regularly reports about the danger to America from Islamic terrorists. But what about potential threats from inside this country? Radical Muslims are looking for ways to bring sharia law to the United States.
Are Muslims in America victims of Islamophobia? Warnings from the Council on American-Islamic Relations seem to suggest just that.
Islam expert Robert Spencer says Americans have caved in to such demands far too often. His new book, The Stealth Jihad, describes the non-violent war being waged by radical Muslims against American society.
The Islamic Agenda Most Of Us Dont Know About (Glen Beck)
Islam extremist agenda for the world insider investigation. To conquer the world, to make the world population muslim, to make sharia law as the only law applied in the world.

And just think. Albeit he claims he is not a Muslim (which I actually believe because he has so little character the guy has no beliefs of his own), America just elected a guy named Barack Hussein Obama that was more likely than not born in the Muslim country of Kenya. If that's not a "go figure" moment, I don't know what is.
