Blinded By Islamophobia
Living in Glass-Houses And
Flinging Stones At Others!

(M. Javed Naseem)

Read my lips: There cannot be peace
without social justice! The menace of
extremism (renamed Islamophobia)
was created as a pretext to invade
oil-rich Muslim countries. Extremism
springs from the base of injustice,
inequality and apartheid. And Islam
is against all three. Promote Justice!

وَمِمَّنْ خَلَقْنَآ أُمَّةٌ يَهْدُونَ بِٱلْحَقِّ وَبِهِ يَعْدِلُونَ
“And of those whom We created, there
is a nation who guide with the Truth
and establish justice therewith.”
(al-Quran 7:181)

In today’s world, ‘Muslim-bashing’ is on top of the Zionists’ agenda. Media’s all-out war against Muslims has gone beyond all reasonable limits. The ‘hate-mongers’ have taken ‘Islamophobia’ to the new heights. So much so that even a 14-years old Muslim child is arrested for inventing a clock. The morons, who claim to be the guardians of law and order, thought the child was lying, and actually trying to make a bomb. Yeah, that’s the Police mindset because the child was a Muslim!

The child, a 14-years old boy named Ahmed, went through hell at this small age. He told reporters it was "very sad" that his teacher thought his clock was a threat.
"I built a clock to impress my teacher but when I showed it to her she thought it was a threat to her. I'm very sad that she got the wrong impression of it."
Yeah, that’s the general mindset! The teacher, even after having inspected the clock, called the Police. The school teachers with that mindset are promoting apartheid and they should be fired.
At the same news conference, Ahmed announced he plans to transfer schools. Good for him!

The Zionists among the so-called ‘People of the Book’ – Jews and Christians – love to criticize Islam and Muslims and quote verses from the Quran out of context just to prove their point that Quran teaches extremism and violence. What an irony! They have studied Bible (Old & New Testaments) and amazingly did not find anything befitting the labels of ‘extreme’ and ‘violent’. Is this a problem of hypocrisy, deception or a simple case of going blind by losing vision?

These days, an American bigot, champion of civil rights, democracy and human rights (himself a black minority) is using all his connections and influence through media to impress the colored and the white voters of America. He is delivering lectures and speeches and in every speech he criticizes Muslims/Islam and at the same time has the nerve to promote Christianity at political forums. He always quotes from the Bible (don’t know what version of Bible he considers authentic). He is a ‘fundamentalist’ Christian. He said he didn’t want to see a Muslim president of America and he wants Muslims to denounce some verses of the Quran. What a bigot! When he quotes from the Bible, he does not denounce the Bible verses that violate the American constitution and promote violence. His statement constitutes ‘discrimination’ and he does not qualify to be a presidential candidate. He is an opportunist and is trying to get cheap publicity with his Muslim-bashing agenda because that’s the fashionable trend today.

The Mindset:
Only The Quran Promotes Extremism?

Islam is not the cause, it’s rather the solution to extremism. It gives equal rights to all people living in one society. It promotes social justice and forbids discrimination on the basis of color, creed, race, family or blood, and religion. Today’s extremism springs from injustice and apartheid.
One of the easiest and quickest methods the right-wingers use to get Joe-public on their side (a tactic used very frequently by groups such as the English Defence League, and the British National Party) is quoting passages from the Quran in isolation and out of context.
We hear of how Islam, through the teachings in the Quran, is condoning the killing of non-believers as well as encouraging the stoning of women for adultery, amongst other things.
Here are some of the values promoted in the Bible. Please pick up a Bible (any version) and check the verse references to see the full passages. There are many but here are only a few as sample:

– Kill people for working on the Sabbath: Exodus 31:12-15
– Kill Homosexuals: Leviticus 20:13
– Kill people for swearing at parents: Leviticus 20:9
– Kill non-believers: 2 Chronicles 15:12-13
– Kill women who are not virgins on their wedding night: Deuteronomy 22:20-21

There are those who seek the shield of religious divide with the argument: Oh! This is in the Old Testament. I am a Protestant (and believe in New Testament). They forget that Jesus had said that he did not bring anything new. Instead he came to confirm the previous message (Torah of Moses). So, the basis of the New Testament is the Old Testament. Jesus did not start a new religion.

“We’ll go down as the greatest bigots
and haters of mankind in history!”
                                    --- Paul Washer

Allah prescribed for mankind a religion based on Truth. It is something very serious but humans always made mockery of it by adding, deleting and changing the contents according to their needs. As a result, we have ‘holy’ books full of ‘unholy’ contradictions. They contain commands that make no sense and defy every logic or reason. They are simply ridiculous.

Dr. Laura Schlesinger is an American radio talk show host and offers listeners advice on family, social, cultural and religious issues. In her radio show, Dr. Laura, an observant Orthodox Jew, said that homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and it cannot be condoned in any circumstance.

The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, written by a U.S. scholar and educationist and posted on the Internet. It’s funny but points out some serious contradictions in the religious beliefs and actions of the People of the Book.

Dear Dr. Laura!
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God’s Laws and how to follow them.

1). Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not to Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?

2). I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3). I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual un-cleanliness – Lev. 15:19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4). When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord – Lev. 1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5). I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6). A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this? Are there ‘degrees’ of abomination?

7). Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?

8). Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

9). I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football (American rugby) if I wear gloves?

10). My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? (Lev. 24:10-16).
Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14).

I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I’m confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.

Your adoring fan,
James M. Kauffman, Ed. D., Professor Emeritus,
Dept. of Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education,
University of Virginia.
P.S.: It would be a damn shame if we couldn’t own a Canadian.

I wonder if Ben Carson, the staunch right-wing Christian and a presidential hopeful of America (or any other bigot in the Western politics today) has any answers to the above questions of Prof. Kauffman!

Moral of the story: Those who live in glass-houses, should not fling stones at others!
Live and let live!
