QUR’AN & HADITH TO BE CENSORED
NONIE DARWISH an Egyptian –and an apostate from Islam to Christianity– who has written two books, Now They Call Me Infidel and Cruel And Usual Punishment: The terrifying global implications of Islamic Law, suggested in her book Cruel And Usual Punishment, that a petition be presented to the American Congress “to require a disclaimer on all Muslim books sold in America; that includes every Qur’an, Hadith, or Sharia book and any text book that has verses or hadiths commanding the killing of apostates or non-Muslims. The disclaimer should read something like this:
“The calls for murder and violent jihad in this book are only metaphorical and should not be acted up against modern day Jews, Christians, atheists, or former Muslims. Any act of violence on the basis of such scriptures will be prosecuted under the law under the hate-crime laws of the United States of America.” (p. 228)
Response: (Nonie Darwish’s ignorance of Islam has fueled her paranoia to advocate censorship of the Qur’an and Hadith. See also her ranting, ISRAEL-MOHAMMAD’S SHAME).
The Qur’an/Allāh/Islam does not call for the “murder” of anyone. Prove that it does! There is no “violent jihad;” Jihad and violence are incompatible. (For the various forms of jihad see JIHAD).
Muslims do not need an arrogant, ignorant, self-aggrandizing Twentieth-century woman to dictate and impose on us which part(s) of the Qur’an is “metaphorical” and which is literal. Allāh, the All-Knowing Revealer informs us about this in the Seventh century in His Qur’an 3:7: “He it is Who has revealed the Book to thee; some of its verses are decisive — they are the basis of the Book — and others are allegorical. Then those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part of it which is allegorical, seeking to mislead, and seeking to give it (their own) interpretation. And none knows its interpretation save Allāh, and those firmly rooted in knowledge. They say: We believe in it, it is all from our Lord. And none mind except men of understanding.”
-There is nothing “metaphorical” about Jews scheming and kicking Palestinians out of their homes and lands and occupying Palestine, and slaughtering them to hold onto it.
-There is nothing “metaphorical” about America stealing Palestine (through diplomatic thuggery at the U.N.) for Jews, and for more than six torturous decades have been aiding in this monumental and grotesque obscenity against the fearless and forbearing Palestinians.
-There is nothing “metaphorical” about Russia, Britain, and France treacherously divvying up the Middle-East after the fall of the Ottoman Turks.
-There is nothing “metaphorical” about Russia obliterating Grozny and 500,000 Chechnyans; and jack-booting Dagestan and Ingushetia.
-There is nothing “metaphorical” about China occupying Uighuristan (and trying to repopulate it with foreigners).
-There is nothing “metaphorical” about America running around like a “wild ass of a man” to control Muslim’s lands and oil (there is nothing “metaphorical” about America overthrowing some fourteen foreign governments –Hawaii; Cuba; Philippines; Puerto Rico; Nicaragua; Honduras; Iran; Guatemala; South Vietnam; Chile; Grenada; Panama; Afghanistan; Iraq– as noted on the Internet, to protect her “interest”).
And unless and until every grain of sand of Palestine is returned to Muslims and unless and until America ends her running around like a “wild ass of a man” to control Muslim lands and oil, Muslims have every right and all rights and the Highest Authority –the Divine Authority– to undertake the armed noble Jihad against America (not civilians) and the Jewish occupiers of Palestine. All the way to the Resurrection if need be. And whether Muslims live or die in this endeavor Jannah/Paradise is ours. And Jannah/Paradise is no “metaphor”!
And any Muslim who acquiesces to this foreign domination of PALESTINE is a traitor to himself, to Muslims, and to Allāh and His Messenger, Mohammad; and will have to account for his or her betrayal of his/her trust. PALESTINE is the moral, social, historical, and spiritual heritage of Palestinians and all Muslims.
What you (NONIE DARWISH, and Christians) need to do is put your face into your Bible and wail and gnash your teeth over its literal commands to enslave “heathen;” to sell children and deal in human trafficking; to wipe out everything that breathes just to occupy their lands; to slaughter all males, even little boys, and matron women and corral all the “virgin” girls as sex slaves; and over its brutal and rabid misogyny.
Regarding forcing Islam onto people: Allāh already has this “disclaimer”:
-“There is no compulsion in religion”–(Qur’an 2:256)
-“Clear proofs have indeed come to you from your Lord; so whoever sees, it is for his own good; and whoever is blind, it is to his own harm. And I am not a keeper over you”–(Qur’an 6:105)
-“And if thy Lord had pleased, all those who are in the earth would have believed, all of them. Wilt thou then force men till they are believers?”–(Qur’an 10:99)
-“Call to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and argue with them in the best manner. Surely thy Lord knows best him who strays from His path, and He knows best those who go aright”–(Qur’an 16:125)
-“And say: The Truth is from your Lord; so let him who please believe, and let him who please disbelieve”–(Qur’an 18:29)
-“and say: I believe in what Allāh has revealed of the Book, and I am commanded to do justice between you. Allāh is our Lord and your Lord. For us are our deeds; and for you your deeds. There is no contention between us and you”–(Qur’an 42:15)
-“We know best what they say, and thou art not one to compel them. So remind by means of the Qur’an him who fears My warning”–(Qur’an 50:45
-“We have truly shown him the way; he may be thankful or unthankful”–(Qur’an 76:3)
-“Say: O disbelievers, I serve not what you serve, Nor do you serve Him Whom I serve, Nor shall I serve that which ye serve, Nor do you serve Him Whom I serve. For you is your recompense and for me my recompense”–(Qur’an 109:1-6).
In contrast, what you, Ms. Darwish (and your fellows-in-cause), critically need to do is have the following pledge inserted at the beginning of the U.S. Constitution:
And have the following disclaimer placed on the cover of every Bible of every denomination and at the entrance of every Church of every denomination in the world:
“Like the devil when he says to
But when he disbelieves,
he (the Devil) says: I am free of thee:
surely I fear Allāh, the Lord of the worlds.”
(Invariably, whenever the above verse comes to mind my thoughts are drawn to the Pope. Wondering if in the privacy of his chambers he bows down to Allāh).
