Synod of Sin: Mideast Catholics Sell Out At the end of the Middle East Synod, a statement was issued. I found it at Asia News. As I expected, it reflects dhimmitude & lunacy. I have excerpted what I perceive as the worst of it, added emphasis to it and will respond critically. Use the link above to read the entire statement in context. Superscripts in the text are linked to my comments below. After reading a comment, use your back button to return to the text.
We address you regarding the importance of equality19 among all citizens. Christians are original and authentic citizens who are loyal to their fatherland and assume their duties towards their country. It is natural that they should enjoy all the rights of citizenship, freedom of conscience, freedom of worship and freedom in education, teaching and the use of the mass media.
We appeal to you to redouble your efforts to establish a just and lasting peace20 throughout the region and to stop the arms race, which will lead to security and economic prosperity and stop the hemorrhage of emigration which empties our countries of its vital forces. Peace is a precious gift entrusted by God to human family, whose members are to be “peacemakers who will be called children of God” (Mt 5:9).
- "The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism." ...[Zahir Muhsein, P.L.O. Executive Cmte. Quoted in World Net Daily]
- The conflict between Islam and disbelievers is global, not local. Wheresoever Islamic terror & genocide are dispersed over the face of the earth, the conflict is one, dictated by Surah Al-Anfal & Surah At-Taubah. Allah's immutable & timeless book commands Muslims to wage war upon pagans, Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians until only Allah is worshiped, all resistance ceases and the "people of the book" are subjugated and submit to continuing extortion.
- Israel is occupied, not occupying. The land belongs to Jews, not to Muslims. Read the history at Palestine Facts.
- If Muslims were not waging war against Jews, there would be no security measures to complain about. The Jewish state is obligated to protect her citizens. She could obliterate her attackers or erect barriers to keep them out. Which is more humane?
- What political prisoners? Is Israel holding anyone who was not directly involved in, aware of or planning & facilitating terror attacks? Would you be happier if Israel simply killed them instead of arresting and imprisoning them?
- Everything you complain about would come to an end if the genocidal attacks would end. Falestinians do not want prosperity, they want genocidal conquest.
- There would be no refugees if the Muslims had not attacked Israel in 1948. Nasser told them to leave and clear the way for pushing the Jews into the sea. Israel does not deserve blame for that.
- All of your emphasis is on the self-imposed suffering of Israel's enemy. The whole affair is a function of Islam's determination to destroy Israel and exterminate the Jews. Why can't you acknowledge that fact and face reality?
- Who built the city and made it their nation's capital? For what good reason should Jews be denied the right to construct housing and live in their capital city? In 1948, Jordan illegally seized half the city and excluded Jews from it. They desecrated cemeteries & synagogues. Was that unilateral? Why do you ignore it?
- Jerusalem is a Jewish city; it is the capital of Israel. Why should it be half full of Muslims? Why should Jews be excluded from any part of their capital city?
- The conflict is existential. Peace is only possible if one side or the other is exterminated. If the aggressors exterminate the defenders, is that justice? The conflict flows from the Jews of the Hijaz recognizing Moe's fraud and scorning him. He designed Islam to appeal to Jews. They knew what he had done and rejected Islam. His first conquests were against those Jews. He said something which should hold your attention.
He said to them, "If you embrace Islam, you will be safe.You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to expel you from this land. So, if anyone amongst you owns some property, he is permitted to sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle." [Sahih Bukhari 4.53.392]
He said something else, which indicates to the intelligent, open minded reader, that his intent is genocidal. They will not stop until they kill the last Jew, because admission to Paradise is dependent on that act.
"The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him." [Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177]
The identity of the aggressor becomes clear after reading another hadith in which Moe expresses his intent.
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: It will turn out that you will be armed troops, one is Syria, one in the Yemen and one in Iraq. Ibn Hawalah said: Choose for me, Apostle of Allah, if I reach that time. He replied: Go to Syria, for it is Allah's chosen land, to which his best servants will be gathered but if you are unwilling, go to your Yemen, and draw water from your tanks, for Allah has on my account taken special charge of Syria and its people. [Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2477]
- Is there a way to rightly justify injustices? Where is the justice in driving Jews out of their homeland? Where is the justice in demanding that Judea & Samaria be Judenrein; exclusively for Muslim Arabs?? Where is the justice in rewarding the aggressors with land? What precedent does that set for other "conflicts"?
- There is one God, and Allah ain't him. If you think that Allah & Jehovah are one and the same, you have a new thought coming. Compare:
John 3:16 (King James Version)
The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, 'Allah, the Blessed, the Exalted, created Adam. Then He stroked his back with His right hand, and progeny issued from it. He said, "I created these for the Garden and they will act with the behaviour of the people of the Garden." Then He stroked his back again and brought forth progeny from him. He said, "I created these for the Fire and they will act with the behaviour of the people of the Fire." [Malik's Muwatta 46.1.2]Self-sacrifical love and arbitrary predestination do not describe the same entity unless that entity is severely schizophrenic.
- You should be "united by one faith" with the Muslims? So convert to Islam if you really believe that. Conversion is a one way street in Arabia, so conversion to Islam is your only path to unity.
- To Islam, justice means "just us".
- To Islam, peace means what they enjoy when their global conquest is completed successfully.
- Muslims do not value life, they value conquest. Achieving Shahid status is their only guaranteed Get Out of Hell Free Card.
9:38. O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter.
13:26. Allâh increases the provision for whom He wills, and straitens (it for whom He wills), and they rejoice in the life of the world, whereas the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter is but a brief passing enjoyment.
61:10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment. 61:11. That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!
- There is no coexistence with Islam. Islam conquers.
The Messenger of Allah stated that no two religions should remain in the Arabian Peninsula, and the Jews and Christians should be expelled from it, all praise is due to Allah. [The Good News that Islam shall prevail]
- Under Islamic law, you ain't equal, you are inferior.
- Peace is the absence of Islam. While there is Islam, peace is impossible. This is be cause Islam is permanent war. 8:39 & 9:29 command it. Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 confirms it. Reliance of the Traveller o9.8 & 9.9 codify it. "jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal "[Sunun Abu Dawud 14.2526]
- A solution can not be real or peaceful unless it removes Islam from a radius = rocket range around Jerusalem. It can not be just unless it leaves Israel in full sovereignty over Eretz Yisrael.
- Those resolutions are unjust, biased and without foundation in morality. They are not a foundation for peace.
- Eretz Yisrael is not Arab territory. President Obama is ending our occupation of Iraq. We'll let the Sunni & Shi'ia kill each other.
- They have no homeland; their homelands are Egypt, Jordan, and other places from which they migrated to Israel. They can have no dignity while enslaved to Allah. To obtain dignity, they must abandon Islam and join the human race. As Muslims, they are the threat to security.
- Islam's stake in Jerusalem is strictly proscriptive: a game of keep away. Their only claim to the city resides in Moe's nightmare.
- Two states: Israel & Jordan. There is no need for a third: Fallestine, since it is a fallacy; pure malicious malarkey.
- The fountainhead of terrorism: "Its Islam, stupid!".
- If you condemn antisemitism & Christianophobia, then you must condemn Islam, because the Qur'an is full of them. By condemning criticism of Islam and revelation of its true nature, you demonstrate your own moral corruption. So, you want to dialogue with Islam? Then open a conversation about Christ's paternity, deity, crucifixion, resurrection & what he will do when he returns. According to Moe, when Jesus comes back, he is going to lead the Muslims in the final battle to exterminate you and the Jews. That is a great starting point for your cherished dialogue.
