Response to Keith: An Apologist For Islam http://barenakedislam.wordpress.com/2011/12/30/bare-naked-islam-is-back-sort-of/Bare Naked Islam is one of the great ani-Islamic blogs. I frequently find interesting information there. Unfortunately, WordPress is forcing it to close down as of January 6. Someone going by the screen name: "Keith" commented Sunday, using argumentum ad homimem. I did not respond directly to his comment, instead responding to another commenter. Keith's comment and mine are reproduced below.
Examine the arguments Keith used:
Keith labels the blog owner and commentators insane, without any basis in fact.
dose of reality
The numerous embedded videos at Bare Naked Islam reflect a grim reality: the true nature of Islam and practices of its adherents. Keith dismisses them with baseless derision.
Phobia implies irrational fear or loathing. There is nothing irrational about fear and loathing of Islam. We need look no further than Islamic scripture to find the proof of this fact.
- so as to strike terror
- strike terror in those
8:60. And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allâh and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allâh does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allâh shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.
- to strike terror
- you terrorize/terrify with it God's enemy
- Cause terror with this
- you terrorize/terrify with it
- to terrify
- by which you may terrify
- to put fear in
- that you may instil fear
- to cause fear
- to put fear
- that you may instil fear
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).
Allah sanctified terror, declared that he would cast terror and cast terror resulting in death, captivity & dispossession. Allah told Moe that the Jews were more afraid of him than of Allah. Moe bragged that terror made him victorious. The best estimate of Islam's victims is 270,000,000. The accusation of irrationality is malignant malarkey at its worst.
pile of dog crap
With more than 3000 pages, 3000 unique visitors per day and 110,000 page views per month, there must be a very large number of people interested in 'dog crap'. What drew Keith to read and comment on 'dog crap'?
Morons can't stop being morons. Those born with substandard intellectual capacity can't increase it.
In sum, Keith has two valid factual arguments about the First Amendment and blog terms of service. The rest is baseless insult. Unfortunately for Keith, the facts are arrayed on our side, not his.Keith subsequently returned to spew more venom. Take a close look:
BNI posts news stories, mostly containing video evidence of the reality of Islam. BNI and readers comment on those news stories. Nobody compels anyone to read those posts or comments. Anyone who does not like them can close the tab or window and seek more satisfying web sites.
always against Islam
There are no facts in favor of Islam. Islam's own canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis & jurisprudence defines Islam as a barbarian war cult, a continuing criminal enterprise disguised as a religion. BNI exposes the grim reality of Islam, it makes no pretense of balance, it takes a side.
Judaism & Christianity do not have scriptural imperatives to genocidal global conquest. The Judaic conquest imperative was limited to Canaan, once that conquest was finished, Israel's battles were defensive, not offensive. No matter how long or intensely you search the Gospels and Book of Acts, you will not find, in the New Testament, Jesus issuing functional equivalents of NQ 2:256, 3:151, 8:12, 8:57, 8:60, 8:67, 9:5, 9:29, 9:111, 9:120 & 9:123. You will not find Jesus making a declaration equivalent to Sahih Bukhari 1.8.367. Note to high functioning Morons: parables & metaphors do not cut the mustard:Luke 19:9-27 does not cut the mustard because it is a parable, not an imperative. Matt 10:34 does not cut the mustard, it is a metaphor for personal relationships, not a war imperative. [http://infidelsunited.com/documents/2944/163/standing-challenge-to-muslims]
Exactly what has BNI posted that is not factually true? Point out the lies and show your evidence to prove that they are lies.
Where is the Christian genocidal conquest imperative? Where are Christians, emulating Jesus by abductions, murders & mass casualty attacks against non-combatant civilians? Anyone thus engaged would be acting in contravention of the teachings of Jesus, not in emulation & obedience.
Christian Constitutional threat
This nation was founded by Christians, as a non-sectarian government. The establishment clause of the First Amendment is there for good reason, there was sufficient experience with sectarianism in Europe and the colonies. .
BNI frequently quotes a leader of CAIR declaring a desire to see Shari'ah supplant the Constitution. Our organic documents enshrine and protect human dignity, equality, liberty and rights. The Constitution is man made law, which Islam arbitrarily rejects. Islam demands imposition of Allah's law: Shari'ah, what Moe preached and exemplified. In the last thirty years, 50 trial and appellate decisions have involved conflicts between Shari;ah and the Constitution & l;aws of the United States.
Islam is not a religion
Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:
I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.
(O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad.
``We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad.''
The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus (def: b7) is such Koranic verses as:
-1- ``Fighting is prescribed for you'' (Koran 2:216);
-2- ``Slay them wherever you find them'' (Koran 4:89);
-3- ``Fight the idolators utterly'' (Koran 9:36);
and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:
``I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah'';
and the hadith reported by Muslim,
``To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.''Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts of the military expeditions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), including his own martial forays and those on which he dispatched others. The former consist of the ones he personally attended, some twenty-seven (others say twenty-nine) of them. He fought in eight of them, and killed only one person with his noble hand, Ubayy ibn Khalaf, at the battle of Uhud. On the latter expeditions he sent others to fight, himself remaining at Medina, and these were forty-seven in number.)
freedom of religion
Freedom of religion is for religions, not continuing criminal enterprises. Islam entails genocidal conquest. It can not be properly practiced without engaging in genocidal conquest. If there is a right to practice Islam, than all our human rights are abrogated. Rather than repeat the obvious, I direct doubters & dissenters to full documentation of the fatal facts.
WordPress, acting of its own free will, can enforce their TOS against BNI. If CAIR interfered in the relationship between BNI and WordPress, then there might be a cause for litigation.If an agency of the federal government, acting under color of the Istanbul Process for implementing HRC Res 16/18, prevailed on WordPress to sanction BNI, then there would be a clear First Amendment issue. In either case, proving tortuous interference would probably be an insurmountable barrier.
There is no such entity! As a wise man wrote: "Its Islam, stupid!". Islam has a standard, set by Moe's preaching & practice, which are recorded in the Qur'an & hadith.
I don't give a damn how many Muslims believe in it or abjure it. Terrorism is an inseverable intrinsic sacrament of Islam. "I will cast terror, "Allah cast terror" "I have been made victorious with terror" Islam is all or nothing, a package deal: "Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest?" . "Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad) you have a good example to follow". "...nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness." The arrogance of these liars who defend the indefensible is infuriating! Any step taken to injure or enrage a disbeliever is a deed of righteousess!!! That says it all, putting the lie to the Moronic protestations of innocent, moderate Islam.Three thousand people are dead and thousands more injured because the magnificent nineteen believed Allah's threat & promise, implementing his accursed imperative. Ain't that sufficient?
I have a tested verbal IQ of 140. I have 140 hours of college credit with a GPA of 3.25.
You called BNI a pile of dog excrement. In fact, it is a blog, with plenty of well documented facts and opinions based on those facts. I did not fabricate anything or tell any lies in my reply to Mama Grizley's comment. In this response to your comments, I have quoted the Qur'an, hadith and Islamic law, in each case I have supplied links so that readers can verify the authenticity of the quotes and explore the context. You have personal attacks, diversions and false, ignorant assertions. I have relevant, verifiable, well documented facts.
I took that lie apart and disproved it with factual evidence in a previous paragraph. Click the linked heading to review the details.
part of the problem
The problem is Islam, a set of doctrines which sanctifies men's worst impulses, sanctioning barbarity in the 'service of god'. I am not part of that problem, I am exposing the problem. BNI exposes Islam with video evidence. I expose it with textual evidence from Islam's canon.
Islam is a lie, told by a liar. Moe did not receive divine inspiration or revelation, he took advantage of hallucinations and issued situational scripture to permit himself to sin. Refer to the following documents for the gritty details.
number of victims
The number is not mine, the statistic was compiled by someone else. Only Islam has an open ended, unlimited genocide imperative. 8:39 & 9:29 are fight until loops of global scale, terminated only by total global conquest and subjugation. 8:67 makes "great slaughter" Moe's price of admission to Allah's celestial bordello. 47:4 tells Moe not to take prisoners until he has "killed and wounded many of them.
Show me the New Testament book, chapter & verse wherein Jesus Christ sanctions, sanctifies and exemplifies terrorism. Christians acting like Muslims would be contravening Christ's teaching and example, obeying Allah and emulating Moe instead of Christ.
