This video features a Congressman and a comedian discussing Islam. I won't accept either of them as an authoritative source. For the purpose of this post I ignore the comedian's comments and questions, concentrating on the Congressman's misrepresentations. Thanks and a tip of the hat to Logan's Warning.
The Qur'an was not written, it was spoken; it is a partial record of Moe's rabble rousing rants, arranged according to the length of the chapters, not thematically or chronologically. Allah's commands are contained in clear verses, Tafsir Ibn Kathir has some guidance for us.
Ellison asserts that terrorists don't get their doctrine from the Qur'an. In fact, that is their primary source, which I detailed in a recent blog post:
Terrorism is an Intrinsic Sacrament of Islam. Allah said that he would cast terror, did cast terror resulting in the enslavement of one Jewish village and the destruction of another. Moe said that the was made victorious by terror. Allah commanded Muslims to terrify their victims.
No compulsion in religion? Yeah, right.
Waging war against Allah includes disbelief, subjecting the disbeliever to being killed or mutilated. Now do you have a clue why Muslims select 5:32, avoiding 33?
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Verse:--"You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind." means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.
Bukhari Ch 61 # 2756: ...It is mentioned from Ibn 'Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, "My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.
Take a good look at 3:110 and Bukhari 6.60.80. Bringing us with chains on our necks until we embrace Islam is not consistent with "no compulsion". 3:111 indicates Moe's intention to attack the neighboring Christians.Note the how the highlighted phrases in 3:112; how they are congruent with those in the quote from Aisha Bewley's translation of Bukhari. Khan bowdlerized that hadith; Bewley did not. Muslims are not permitted to reject terrorism. Islam is a package deal, all or nothing.
-7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it;
Rejection of terrorism: 8:39, 8:57, 8:60, 33:26, 59:2 & 59:13 warrants the death penalty! Ellison claims to embrace morality & doing good deeds. There is a related verse he won't cite for you but I will. Acts of terrorism are good deeds according to Allah.
Any act to enrage or injure disbelievers is imputed to Muslims as a deed of righteousness!!! Islam is a lie. Muslims are liars. Muslims are terrorists. Do not take my word for it; click the links and read the citations in context. Then contact your Congressman & Senators; disrespectfully demand that Islam be stripped of its 'religion' status & outlawed and Muslims be expelled & excluded.
