    Islam, Sand-Nigger, Dune-Coon and "Non-Violence" Nonesense

    “The Christian God is a being of terrific character – cruel, vindictive, capricious and unjust,” Thomas Jefferson, US President (1801-1809).

    “Now go and attack Amalek and utterly destroy all they have and do not spare them. Kill both men and women, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey,” 1 Sam 15:3. Similar violent commands can be found in Hebrew Bible in Deut, 2:30-35, 7: 1-2, 7:16 and Jer. 13:14, etc.

    “Thus were both the daughters of Lot (a Biblical prophet) with child by their father,” Genesis 19:36

    The born-again Jew, the former US secretary of state, Madelein Albright, was asked by Lesley Stahl that (USrael) sanctions (against Iraq) has killed half a million children – more than children killed in Heroshima as result of US nuclear attack. “Do you believe it’s worth the price?” Albright’s respose was: “I think it’s a very hard choice, but the price – we think the price is worth it”. Interestingly, Albright could hold her tears on TV while mentioning the death of seven Jewish girls along Jordanian border at the hands of a Jordanian soldier in March 1997.

    The stereotype image of Muslim fanatics crashing planes into high-rise buildings and blowing up innocent people by their suicidal actions – are created by the Islamophobe writers working for the Zionist-controlled mainstream media and the pro-Israel government officials and the intelligence agencies – all working for the benefit of the Zionist entity in the Middle East. The great majority of the terrorist activites for which Muslims are blamed – were in fact Israeli false-flag operations meant to demonize the Muslims and Islam in general.

    Israel was never mentioned by name in the Bible until the Zionist created Scofield Study Bible which created the ‘divine’ support for the creation of the Zionist state as the fulfilment of the Biblical prophecy. Scofield Bible is the ‘religious inspiration’ for the majority of 70 million pro-Israel Zionist Christians.

    Holy Qur’an commands non-violence when Allah says: “There is no compulsion in religion”. However, Holy Qyr’an also says that Allah will not have Mercy on the unrepentant Evildoers in order to defend His Attribute of being the enforcer of ‘Absolute Justice’. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) also carried out a non-violent Jihad (struggle) for first thirteen years of his prophethood to bring reformation to the Makkan pagan society. He and his followers suffered so much humiliation and torture in Makkah that some of them had to take refuge in the nearby Christian Kingdom of Habsha. The Prophet (pbuh) himself took self-exile in Medinah on the request of his followers in Mdinah. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) tried for two years to seek cooperation from the followers of other Abrahamic religion (Israelite) who dominated the city as traders and money-lenders. They took the message of Islam (usury, slavery, greed and treason) as a great threat to their power. Therefore, they collaborated with the enemies of Islam by funding them. As a result, City’s Chief Rabbi, based on Torah’s command – gave the Muslims the right for the expulsion of the three Jewish tribes – though two of the Prophet’s (pbuh) wives belonged to Jewish tribes.

    The misunderstood word ‘Jihad’ – is NOT equivalent to western Crusades or America’s war on everyone who refuses to accept its dictation. Islamic Jihad mean “struggle to understand one’s purpose of creation”. In Islamic Shari’ah there are six kinds of Jihad. Five involves in purification of one’s religious, social and political actions – as commanded by Allah in Holy Qur’an and practiced by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) during his life. The sixth Jihad is to use force to stop evilness being constantly committed after all non-violent resistance has failed. All religions and the international law allow people to fight the resist the military occupation by every possible mean including the armed resistance. That’s what some Muslim groups are doing in occupied Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya and Philippines.

    The modern history the greatest non-violent movement was 1979 Isranian Revolution lead by Imam Khomeini, which toppled the pro-USrael dynasty of Reza Shah Pahlavi (d.1980 in Cairo and is buried next to King Farouk in the Al-Rifai mosque) without a shot or the acts of hooliganism are being carried out by the US-funded protest marches against Ahmadinejad’s re-election in June 2009. In June 2008 – it was revealed that a 2007 Bush administration directive provided for an additional US$400 million to expand US operations in Islamic Iran – one priority of which was described as “supporting the opposition groups in a bid to undermine the current regime”.

    Randall Amster PhD, in his article “What the Muslim World Can Teach Us about Nonviolence“, wrote:

    “It might be a bad dream, but it feels real enough. The mantle of warfare slips seamlessly from one president to another, from one party to another, from one decade to another, from one generation to another. The impetus of national aggression transcends race, creed, socio-economic status, age and geography. Our collective sin is the bald lie that we all live and perpetuate from moment to moment, year upon year, from our past to the days ahead: the misbegotten belief that we are a peaceful people.

    Yes, we are good and peaceful, and they (whatever “they” we’re focused on today) are ruthless and evil. Institutionally, these values are operationalized every day. Drone attacks, propped-up murderers and dictators, weapons manufacturing and distribution, clandestine death squads, full-on warfare, neglect of starvation and disease, collateral damage, structural adjustments, black holes of torture, targeting civilians – this is the essence of our foreign policy…… Please don’t get stuck on the standard lines that “all these people understand is violence” and “their religion is based on violence.” If we are to judge Muslims as a whole based on the actions of a small sample of fanatics, then we have to apply the same gaze to ourselves, and it isn’t a pretty reflection looking back….”

    Former model finds self-dignity in Islamic faith

    AN industry where “sex sells” might not seem an obvious career choice for a young Muslim woman.

    As a singer, dancer, actress and former model, Mary Habiba Davidson — also known as Mary HD — had felt pressure to conform to the stereotype that comes with making it in the entertainment world.

    When she started out Mary posed in a bikini in the pages of Vogue, Marie Claire, Elle, Cosmopolitan and Company magazines in a bid to make a name for herself.

    But after finding her faith, the 27-year-old has turned her back on her former raunchier self — and is now more successful than ever.

    Mary who first converted to Islam at 19, has started to carve out a successful career as a singer while setting up her own business to help others follow in her footsteps.

    Mary, of Brookhouse, Blackburn, hopes to inspire other women to follow their dreams but to stay true to themselves.

    And the entrepreneur, who started dancing at the age of three, says that converting to Islam was the best career move she could have made.

    “I started modelling when I was 15. At that time I knew I wanted to make something of myself and there is pressure in the industry to bare a lot of flesh,” said Mary, who was born to a Christian mother and Muslim father.

    “At that time I was going out and drinking and needed some guidance and direction. Then I found Islam. Being a Muslim made me realise that I didn’t want to do that any more. I realised what was important was to help other people, and spread the word of love, hope, peace and charity,” said the former Beardwood Humanities College student.

    Since giving up modelling, Mary has appeared in the TV dramas Clocking Off and The Parole Officer and the soap Hollyoaks.

    In 2008 she travelled to New York to work on songs with producer Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins, who has worked with Mariah Carey and Mary J Blige “My religion hasn’t stopped what I can do. It has helped pave my career. It has inspired me with my singing and the messages I want to spread about peace and love,” she said.

    Although she has not faced any prejudice because of her religion, she says that her faith has made her think about how she approaches her job.

    “There are certain things that I would not do because of my religion now. I wouldn’t want to wear a bikini in one of my videos or sing about something meaningless.”

    Last summer she was asked to strip off for a music video, but she choose not to and decided to set up her own business called Mary HD Entertainment Ltd aimed at helping young people further a career in the music industry in order for her to control her image.

    Her company, based in Bala Close, Blackburn, has been so successful that she was nominated for the Business Personality Of The Year 2009 award.

    In February, Mary was invited by The Prince’s Trust to work on a project called Dreams, where she wrote and recorded a song with 10 girls between the ages of 16 to 25.

    The group performed the song to Prince Charles when he came to Turf Moor in Burnley.

    “It was a brilliant experience working with the 10 girls,” she said. “I watched them build in confidence and improve their social skills during the workshops.

    “I have been asked to run another workshop in April. Hopefully the girls will enjoy it and be inspired to follow their dreams.”

    The “Gender Jihad”

    ”I think the kind of Islam that wants to force women to wear a veil or headscarf won’t be around in 20 years,” Asra Nomani

    Mumbai-born professor Asra Q. Nomani (b. 1965) is an American academic, author and self-styled women-rights activist for the Muslim women. She was a staff reporter for 15 years at the pro-Israel Jewish-owned The Wall Street Journal and has been a familiar face on almost every major Zionist media outlet such as CNN, The New York Times, Salon magazine, Newsweek, Harper’s magazine, Reuters, etc. The Wall Street Journal’s Jewish reporter Daniel Pearle stayed at her home in Karachi in 2002 from where he was kidnapped. Her friends include Dr. Amina Abdul Wadud. The New York Times (March 1, 2005) called her religious activism “Rosa-Parks style“.

    In a recent interview with Alfred Hackenberger, published in Qantara.de under the heading Gender Jihad in the Service of Women\’s Rights, in which she asserted “there is no contradiction between Islam and feminism”. However, her standard of “feminism” is no different than Jewish feminist Gloria Steinem or the pro-Israel Jewish groupds’ darling, lesbian Muslim Refotmer Irshad Manji, or Zalmay Khalilzad’s Vienna-born Jewish wife, Cheryl Benard, a senior adviser at the California-based Zionist think tank, the RAND. They all want to reform Islam in the image of western culture. As the West’s “moderate Islamic scholars” – these sell-outs, without understanding Holy Qur’an in its original text – want the Muslims to believe that there is no Qur’anic commandment when it comes to “an Islamic State, Hijab, women rights in demestic, social and political life, Shari’ah’s punishments for adultry, alcoholism, murder and of course the military Jihad.

    Asra Nomani do admit in her interview: “I think Islam was originally a feminist religion. The Prophet Muhammad was a feminist, like his first wife Khadija, his daughter Fatima and his wife Aisha. None of them allowed them to be pushed aside, and they all spoke their minds. I don’t think Islamic feminism is an apparent contrdiction. My experience is that women have to fight the male power in Islam with the same dynamics as in all other religions”. However, admitting that truth about Islam – Asra Nomani whine like the famous Zionist Jew Islamophobe, Daniel Pipes – attacking veil: “If you cover the face of a woman, it de-personifies her. The removal of the veil is a crucial element of gender Jihad, because doing that we dispel ignorance”.

    In other words, according to Asra Nomani’s definition – the veil-wearing Iranian professor Zahra Rahnavard PhD (wife of Iran’s defeated presidential candidate, Mir-Hossein Mousavi) - is an ignorant person! She happens to be selected No.3 among the Zionist think tank, Foreign Policy’s “Top 100 Global Thinkers” in December 2009.

    Asra Nomani quotes anti-Islam and anti-Muslim stereotype to hide her own Islamophobic nature. She says that the Saudis have inserted veil being compulsary in the translation of Holy Qur’an. I wonder, why she trust a translation and not learn Arabic language to understand the true message of Holy Qur’an. She blame Iran for the abuse of women rights while igoring the fact that her adopted country (the US) is one of world’s top women abuser, according to Amnesty International.

    Asra Nomani also believes that these translations “justifies violence against women and suicide attacks with an allegedly literal interpretation of the Koran and suggests that a Muslim should not make friends with Jews and Christians if at all possibe”. I guess she doesn’t know that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had married two Jewish widows and one Egyptian Christian slave woman. Furthermore, while both the Bible and Talmud curse the Jews and Christians and even insult and ridicule the Biblical prophets – Holy Qur’an accepts all Biblical prophets as righteous people and calls both Yahud and Nasara as the “People of Book”. However, Holy Qur’an allows Muslims to have non-Muslims as friends and even allow Muslims to have non-Muslim wives – but warns the Believers not to trust non-Muslims blindly.

    If Islamic teachings really suppresses women aspirations – why the former dancer, singer, actress and model, Mary Habiba Davidson 27, after converting to Islam, left her successful “modern life-style”. She says: “There are certain thing that I would not do because of my religion now. I would not want to wear a bikini in one of my videos or sing something meaningless. My religion has not stopped me what I can do. It has helped pave my career. It has inspired me in my singing and the messages I want to spread about peace and love”. Her private company has been so successful that she was nominated for the “Business Personality of the Year 2009 Award”.

    Islamic Calligraphy

    “I try to keep people’s eyes on the Middle East, because the area is so essential to Japan,” Professor Yuriko Koike, former Japanese Environment Minister (2004-2006) and Defense Minister (2007). She was born on July 15, 1952 and graduated in 1976 from Cairo University (Egypt). She speaks Arabic and writes in Islamic calligraphy as hobby. Watch a video of her speech on the occasion of the establishment of the Sasakawa Middle East Islamic Fund below.

    Arabic calligraphy has always been the supreme art form of the Islamic world. From the very begining of the Islamic faith – Arabic calligraphy has expressed and enhanced the aesthetic and spiritual dimensions of Islam in the shape of Qur’anic calligraphy. Not only that – it also played a major role in the other Islamic arts, such as, architecture, metalwork, ceramics, glass and textiles – draw on calligraphy as their principal source of embellishment. With the spread of Islam – Arabic calligraphy first spread to Iraq, Syria, Palestine and Egypt and later to North Africa, Spain, Sicily and in the east to Iran, Central Asia, China, India, Afghanistan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and Burma.

    The British Muslim convert, Professor Martin Lings (1909-2005), in his book “The Qur’anic Art of Calligraphy and Illumination” wrote:

    “It must not be forgotten that one of the greatest purposes of Qur’anic calligraphy is to provide a visual sacrament. It is a widespread practice in Islam to gaze intently at Qura’nic inscriptions so as to extract a blessing from them, or in other words so that through the windows of sight the soul may be penetrated by the Divine radiance of ‘The Sign of God’, as the verses are called”.

    Sheldon Chad, an award-winning screenwriter and journalist from Montreal (Canada) has written an excellent article, titled Shodo Arabic, on the Japanese interest shown in Islamic calligraphy:

    “Inside the Arabic Islamic Institute in Tokyo, 15 students of calligraphy raptly practice writing verses from the Qur’an. Yet when the call to prayer is heard, few stir. The instructors and students are Japanese, and only two are Muslims. Here, their calligrapher’s pens (qalam in Arabic) are not made of reeds, as is traditional in much of the Islamic world. Nor do they use the brushes (fude) favored by Japanese calligraphers. Their pens are made of bamboo, which is plentiful in Japan.

    Yukari Takahashi, who owns an elegant Tokyo nightclub, holds up a sheet of Japanese rice paper with embossed floral patterns framing immaculate calligraphy. I ask her why she studies Arabic calligraphy, and, in her limited English, she answers, “Very beautiful.” Other practitioners—a retired consul-general, a choreographer and dancer, the head of the Tokyo City Retirement Fund—also mention beauty first when describing their attraction to Arabic calligraphy. When asked about the cultural value behind a Japanese appreciation of Arabic calligraphy, Professor Yasushi Kosugi’s simple reply echoes the calligraphy student’s: “Beauty.” “Because that is the target,” he says. “We have to attain the beauty.”

    Koichi Yamaoka says, “People don’t know about Islam. They only know Muslim people can marry four wives; they don’t eat pork…. Only superficial knowledge. So when I teach Arabic calligraphy, I explain the background of the culture.”

    Why are Russians Converting to Islam?

    by Paul Goble

    The conversion of historically Orthodox Christian ethnic Russians to Islam is one of the most politically sensitive issues in the Russian Federation, with journalists and commentators frequently offering wildly different numbers and explanations for a trend many find a matter of deep concern.

    Now, Andrey Ignatyev, a specialist on the sociology of religion at the Russian State Humanitarian University, seeks to answer the question "why do ethnic Russians convert to Islam?" without the exaggerations and apocalyptic language in which such religious shifts are usually cast.

    In a heavily footnoted article posted on the Portal-Credo.ru site, Ignatyev argues that most earlier discussions of this issue have failed because they have offered a single explanation of what is an enormously complicated social phenomenon. In fact, people have extraordinarily varied reasons for converting. For his part, Ignatyev offers four.

    First, the Moscow sociologist says, the largest number of converts are those who convert because of marriage, a group which includes both those who accept Islam before they marry and those who become Muslims once they enter into a marriage with one of the faithful. "As a rule," these are women, and the groom's parents make conversion a precondition of marriage.

    Although such women elicit "particular hatred from Islamophobes like the members of the Movement Against Illegal Immigration," Ignatyev says, most of them know "very little" about their new faith and seldom show up in any mosque after their formal conversation, although a few of them do over time become active Muslims.

    Second, he continues, there are Russians are attracted by the mysticism of Sufism, a pattern found around the world where such "god-seeking" often leads people to "convert" to various forms of Hinduism or Buddhism. But generally, Ignatyev says, such people "show no interest in communion with ethnic Muslims or strive to be part of a Muslim milieu.

    Indeed, there is some question as to just how much these people deserve to be called Muslims. He gives as an example a Russian who having joined a Sufi order "gave a promise to accept Islam," even though that was "not required," and who said that "in the Moscow section of the order, 'there are Muslims but no Eastern peoples.'"

    Third, Ignatyev says, there are those who "consciousness accept Islam as a religion in its concretely historical, ethnographic and cultural manifestation." They are "more serious than the neophytes of the first and second groups," and some of them study languages of Muslim nationalities and even travel abroad for instruction in Islam.

    Most of these people associate themselves with one of the historical divisions of Islam such as the Hanafi rite of Sunni Islam, the Salafites, or the Twelver Shiia and are devoutly religious, publicly thanking Allah that he has brought them to the true faith. And many of them choose to live according to the shariat or adat.

    And fourth, Ignatyev says, is "the most surprising group" of converts of all, a group that he calls "white Muslims" on the basis of an analogy with Louis Farrakhan's "Black Muslims" in the United States. "Representatives of this group," he continues, "combine Islam either with Russian nationalism, neo-paganism and racism or with left-radical doctrines."

    Many of the relatively small number of people in this group were part of NORM, the National Organization of Russian Muslims, which viewed Islam as "a path to the rebirth of the Russian nation" or as "a means to the world-wide liberation of the oppressed" but which had little interest in historically Muslim groups.

    In fact, oftentimes such "White Muslims," Ignatyev continues, have been openly hostile to Muslims from abroad, with some of them taking the side of ethnic Russians over Muslim immigrants in the case of conflicts like the one that broke out two years ago in the Karelian city of Kondopoga, despite sharp criticism from traditional Muslim leaders of their position.

    Ignatyev does not offer any numbers for these groups - they probably amount in total to fewer than 50,000 - but he does sharply criticize those like the writer Elena Chudinova and the Orthodox activist Roman Silantyev who have written alarmist tracts about "Russian Muslims" and the threat they supposedly represent to Russia's future.

    According to the sociologist of religion, there is no reason for that: "If there are Orthodox Arabs or Japanese, then why cannot Russian Muslims exist as well?" More than that, he says, this trend is likely to grow in a world of "global transformations in which what was "impossible in the past" is now "an everyday phenomenon."

    "The processes which are taking place in the contemporary world and which are connected with the rapid development of many countries in Asia and the increase of migration flows are leading to a notable heightening of the eastern factor in the life of Russia," Ignatyev says, something one need not fear if one understands its nature.

    Re: Why are Russians Converting to Islam?

    Orthodox "Christianity" is one step away from Roman Catholicism. It's a cult! Idol worship is an accepted practice and their religious rituals are practiced with a great deal of pomp and glitter. So ... changing from Orthodox Christianity to Islam is like a Buddhist switching to Hinduism. Six of one and half a dozen of the other.

    Western literature and music inspired by the Qur'an

    <div>by Professor Dr. Mohamed Elmasry, University of Waterloo, Canada

    The Qur'an is the 1,400-year-old divine book of Islam, revealed to its Prophet Muhammad by Almighty God. This unique scriptural revelation, entirely in Arabic, took 23 years to complete.

    To Muslims, and many non-Muslims the world over, the Qur'an is a classic book of Arabic literature whose poetic language and style lend the text itself to a special, and very moving, genre of music that is distinctly its own.

    Anyone who has been fortunate enough to hear the spiritual art of Qur'anic chanting will never forget it.

    Ever since the early 7th century AD, the Qur'an has inspired countless literary writers, novelists, poets, composers and visual artists to study its pages, emulating its forms and themes to create many generations of beautiful classics.

    The romantic masterpiece, "Layla and Majnun," was written by the Persian poet Nizami during the 12th century and became one of the most popular love stories, inspiring later dramas such as William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

    Some of the best-loved Islamic literary works throughout the West include The Thousand and One Nights (8th century AD), the Sufi verses of Rumi (1207

    Anti-Immigration Party Makes Big Gains in Holland

    Anything that will stem the tide of Muslim immigration into white countries is good news.

    Far-right election breakthrough shocks Netherlands
    From Breitbart.com

    The spectacular election breakthrough of the far-right anti-Muslim Party for Freedom shocked the Netherlands on Thursday as two mainstream parties braced for weeks of coalition haggling.

    The pro-business Liberal VVD party had 31 seats and the Labour party (PvdA) 30, with 99.6 percent of the vote counted after Wednesday's election.

    But far-right PVV leader Geert Wilders demanded a share of government after his party came third with 24 seats, more than doubling its current nine seats in the 150-member parliament.

    "Nobody in The Hague can bypass the PVV anymore," said Wilders, whose party wants an end to immigration from Muslim countries and a ban on new mosques and the Koran.

    "We want to be part of the new government," declared Wilders, a distinctive figure with a shock of dyed blonde hair who is under 24-hour protection and has to live at secret addresses because of his controversial political stand.

    France's far-right National Front hailed the PVV's "great success", while the CMO Dutch Muslim organisation expressed disappointment.

    "It is shameful," CMO chairman Rasit Bal told Dutch news agency ANP.

    "One thing is clear: a group of people are against us. It is terrible," a 29-year-old Muslim who identified herself only as Aicha told AFP at Oosterwei, an immigrant-majority suburb of the Dutch city of Gouda.

    The PVV pushed the Christian Democratic Action party of Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende into fourth place, prompting him to resign as party leader and MP after eight years as Dutch premier.

    Having been a part of nearly every Dutch government since World War II, the Christian Democrats lost 20 seats to end at 21. Balkenende's last centre-left coalition collapsed in February over the country's Afghanistan military mission.

    "A divided Netherlands," said the front page headline on the NRC Next newspaper, summing up the election results.

    With economic concerns dominating the campaign, the Liberal party led by Mark Rutte campaigned with a promise to cut public spending by about 45 billion euros (54 billion dollars) over the next four years.

    It also promised to eradicate the public deficit, which was 5.3 percent of GDP last year, to shrink the government and parliament, lower income taxes and cap civil servant pay rises while raising the retirement age by two years to 67.

    Labour, led by Amsterdam ex-mayor Job Cohen, had promised more "careful" savings, the retention of social benefits and higher taxes for the rich. It lost two seats.

    The election was the first in a eurozone country since the Greek financial crisis erupted and was closely watched to see how the public reacted to Europe's wave of austerity. Voter turnout was 74 percent, the lowest since 1998.

    Rutte has set a target date of July 1 to create a new government. "We do not exclude any party," he said ahead of the polls, asked about a possible coalition with the far right.

    Cohen has ruled out cooperation with the PVV.

    The maverick Wilders has earned notoriety around the world with his campaign to "stop the Islamisation of the Netherlands."

    Wilders, who calls Islam a fascist religion and likens the Koran to Hitler's "Mein Kampf", is known abroad for his 17-minute commentary, "Fitna", which was termed "offensively anti-Islamic" by UN chief Ban Ki-moon.

    He goes on trial in the Netherlands in October on charges of inciting racial hatred against Muslims. He was barred from entering Britain last year to stop him spreading "hatred and violent messages."

    The deadlocked result means that the PVV cannot be ruled out of coalition talks which observers say will be long and complicated.

    Among the other parties, the Socialist Party got 15 seats, down from 25, the Green GroenLinks and centrist D66 both made gains to get 10 and the Christian Union five, losing one.

    Official results will be released next Tuesday.
