Thanks and a tip of the hat to Logans Warning for bringing this to my attention. The video is a well drawn animated cartoon with poor audio quality. Its theme is an encounter between a passing Muslima and Pastor Jones attempting to burn Qur'ans. It runs about three and a half minutes. As the dialog between Jones and the Muslima continues, his flock picks up Qur'ans and departs one by one, as if the Muslima's lame excuses for Islam are converting them.
Muslim Response created an animated cartoon to portray Pastor Terry Jones as an ignorant bigot and Islam as a religion of peace. With a cartoon, it is easy to set up Jones as a straw man, conceal the evil aspects of Islamic doctrine & paractice and paint Islam in a beutific light.
Lets take it point by point.
- Islam is of the devil.
Yes, we say he interviews in which the title of his book was mentioned, and we saw the interviewers keeping Jones busy, never letting him get down to details. Allah was one of 360 idols ensconced in the Kabaa in the seventh century, until Muhammad conquered Mekkah and destroyed the other idols. Allah is a moon deity, note the crescent moon on the domes of mosques. At various times and places, Allah went by other names, including Sin.Who demands sacrifice, human blood? Is it the God you worship or his adversary? When Muslims slaughter sheep, goats and camels for Eid, what do they say while slitting throats? What were the last words heard on the cockpit voice recorder of Flight 93? What did they say when they slit Nick Berg's throat? Why is Allahu Akhbar! pronounced on all those occasions? Does God really desire human blood in genocidal quantitiy? Allah does. The Qur'an has a clue for you. I will emphasize key phrases for clarity.
What does Allah desire? What does Allah require as a prerequisite? Does God declare perpetual war against Jews & Christians? Who does?
- The Qur'an refers reverentially to the Bible.
Ain't that wonderful, the Qur'an confirms the Bible. Yeah, right. We will revisit this subject soon.
- The Qur'an respects Jesus Christ. Yeah, right, as Allah's slave, a genocidal warlord who will exterminate the remaining Jews & Christians just before the end of the world.
Is Jesus the son of God? Does he divine? Was he crucified? Was he resurrected? If you remember anything from Sunday school, you will recognize the fact that the Qur'an, while claiming to confirm the Gospels, contradicts them.[Emphasis added.]
Instead of confirming the Gospels concerning the papternity, deity, death & resurrection of Jesus, the Qur'an contradicts them, declaring that Allah has no offspring and Jesus is his slave. Can there be anything worse than this? Of course there is!
Narrated AbuHurayrah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.
What will Jesus do?
- fight the people for the cause of Islam
- break the cross
- That phrase is a code for exterminating Christians.
- kill swine
- That phrase is a code for exterminating Jews.
- abolish jiaya
- Jizya is paid by conquered or intimidated Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians. When they are extirminated, there will be nobody left to pay it.
- perish all religions except Islam
- Jesus will wage war on them and exterminate them.
Put those points to a Muslim and he will swear that I am a liar, twisting and distorting the Qur'an and haidth. Unfortunately for that Muslim, there is more clear evidence to prove him wrong. 7:167 says that Allah will continually send someone to torment the Jews. Ibn Kathir's Tafsir of that ahyeh holds a secret clue for you.[Emphasis added.]
...In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews. This will occur just before the end of this world. ...
- The Qur'an has a chapter dedicated to women. Indeed it does, Surah An-Nisa'
What is the relationship between the Muslim woman and her husband?
Of course the relationship is more complex than that. [Emphasis added.]
Tilth litteraly means "field to be plowed". And the prohibition on sodomy is not to be found in the Arabic text. Visit this site and scroll down to the beginning of 2:223, then scroll through it.
There is another little detail the Muslima withheld from your virgin ears. I am not so shy: women are deficient in intelligence & religion![Emphasis added.]
Men are superior to women, who must obey their husbands. Husbands are allowed to beat their wives. Lightly was added by the translators, it is not in the Arabic. You won't find beat there, either. Try this page, even though it is fine print. The literal translation says scourge.
- A claim is made that the Qur'an is compatible with the Constitution. Unfortunately it is so mumbled that I can not decipher it word for word. it begins at 2 2 minutes 18 seconds into the video.
Our Constitution specifies that laws are made by a bicameral legislature, by majority vote in most cases. The Qur'an specifies that Allah's word is law and his decisxion is final.
Our Constitution forbids "cruel and unusual" punishments. The Qur'an specifies amputation & lashing.
Our Constitution guarantees freedom of religion. The Qur'an says that Muslims must wage war to give Allah a global monopoly.
- 5:32 is quoted, asserting that killing one innocent person is the moral equivalent of global genocide. This quote is used to disclaim 'radicalism'.
Did you notice the exceptions: murder & fitna? The devil is in the details, and Muslims always conceal the vital details. They will not quote the next verse. Why do they conceal it? Surah Al-Ma'idah 33 specifies hudud for fitna & "waging war against Allah and his Messener".
Just what is this great sin that subjects one to being killed, crucified, mutilated or exiled?? Once again Ibn Kathir comes to the rescue with a clear definition. [Emphasis added.]
I gave you a link to 2:190, because the translator's footnote defines jihad with great clarity. You can selelect any Surah and ayeh from drop down boxes. You should, at minimum, read Surahs 2,3,4,8,9,33,48 & 61. To fully comprehend those Surahs, you should supplement them with the authentic hadith of Bukhari. I recommend Books 52, 53 & 59.
Is that clear enough for you? Disbelief is waging war against Allah. If you don't believe, you can be crucified or mutilated. The video ends with an exhortation to read the Qur'an. That is the one part I agree with. Read it, and learn what is really in it. The Qur'an is widely available on the web, you can read it without buying a copy. The King Fahd Complex presents the Hilali & khan translation, which is 95% accurate. The inaccuracies are intentional. They relate to 'fight' in which case the real word is fight/kill, essentially wage war, and 'marry' in which case the true word is a four letter obscenity.
