In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.
It's not easy being Muslim, what with fatwas to obey (1), pre-pubescent wives to deflower (2), adulterers to stone (3), unveiled women to rape (4), virgin girls to de-virginize and execute (5), intransigent daughters to Honor-kill (6), and divorce-seeking wives to behead (7).
And while the civilized world is exposed to the truth of the brutality of Islam, many Muslim converts in America are finding it more and more difficult to find excuses for the actions of their fellow Muslims; and so I have decided to publish this handy reference for my American Muslim readers to help them deflect the charges leveled against Muslims and to help convince others that Islam is the religion of peace.
It is in that spirit that I offer the following excuses:
- If a kaffir (unbeliever) has not read the Qur'an and has an ill view of Islam, suggest that he read the Qur'an where he can find peace, love, respect and tolerance.
- In the event that the kaffir actually takes your dare, reads the Qur'an and finds a passage that
- condones the killing of infidels (8),
- forbids friendship with non-Muslims (9),
- sanctifies the beating of wives (10),
then insist that the translation is distorted or misrepresented or out of context.
- If a kaffir asks why this or that Muslim committed some barbaric act in the name of Islam, tell him that that is not true Islam; that those who claim to be holy warriors are an affront to the faith. Deny, deny, deny.
- If a kaffir asks why Muslims allow their daughters to be vaginally mutilated, insist that it is a cultural thing, nothing to do with Islam [despite the fact that Islam, which supposedly liberated women from ancient injustices, condones the practice].
Now some of you Muslims will ask, "It's my religion, why do I have to defend it? So what if the Qur'an is barbaric, savage, intolerant, bigoted, racist, violent, misogynistic, and primitive, I like it."
Hey, I agree with you, you are in America now and everyone is allowed to be a hateful asshole, and if you want to be one, you have that right. This manual is not for that kind of Muslim who will admit the truth; no, this is for Muslims who want to convince stupid American idiots, primarily Liberals, that Islam is a beautiful and peace-loving, kind and gentle religion.
Remember: deflect, dissemble, distort and deny.
Planck's Constant, OTA A Fatwa to Die For
Take a recent case in Egypt: many unmarried men and women have to work together but the women have to be veiled which makes working very difficult. Egypt’s grand mufti, Sheik Ali Gomaa recently issued a fatwa that has caused quite a stir: "the restriction on unmarried men and women being together could be lifted at work if the woman breast-fed her male colleagues five times. This is based on early hadiths that allow unmarried men to view the faces of a woman who has breast-fed them. Well, I have to tell you, before a woman breast feeds me I would like to see her face first. So I guess I would be in a classic catch-22.
Planck's Constant, Sometimes Muslim Men Are Good to their Wives
Yesterday, a nine year old girl who had been forced into a marriage appeared in a family court in Dera Ghazi Khan, in Punjab Province, Pakistan. She filed a petition demanding that her husband and his father be tried under Islamic Law.
Al Jazeera English, Somali woman stoned to death
A Somali woman has been stoned to death for committing what a judge has said was adultery.
The 20-year-old divorcee was executed on Tuesday after confessing to having had sex with a 29-year-old unmarried man.
Sheikh Ibrahim Abdirahman, the judge for a court created by the rebel group al-Shabab, says the woman was killed in front of a crowd of some 200 people near the town of Wajid.
The woman, who gave birth to a stillborn child, was buried up to her waist before the stoning took place. Her boyfriend was given 100 lashes for having the affair.
Planck's Constant, Muslim Cleric: Unveiled Women are like Juicy Steak
A Muslim cleric's claim that women who do not wear the veil are like 'uncovered meat' who attract sexual predators sparked outrage around Australia yesterday.
Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, the nation's most senior Muslim cleric, compared immodestly-dressed women who do not wear the Islamic headdress with meat that is left uncovered in the street and is then eaten by cats.
Planck's Constant, Virgin Girls Raped Before Execution in Iran
In the Islamic Republic of Iran it is illegal to execute a woman if she is a virgin.
So to solve that problem, members of Iran's feared Basij militia forcibly marry female virgin prisoners the night before scheduled executions, raping their new "wives" and making it religiously acceptable to execute them, a self-professed member of the paramilitary group said.
The anonymous militiaman told the Jerusalem Post that at age 18 he was "given the 'honor' to temporarily marry young girls before they were sentenced to death."
Planck's Constant, Honor Killings in Islam - When you have nothing else in your life
in January 2002, Fadime Sahindal, a Swedish-Kurdish girl, was murdered by her father in a so-called honor killing. Fadime has become a symbol throughout Scandinavia of two things at once - the oppression of girls and women with non-Western roots and the courage with which many of those girls respond to that oppression.
Planck's Constant, Beheadings, Honor Killings Over Muslim Divorce
it is a given that divorce for Muslim women is a difficult, dangerous process. For the great majority of Muslim women there is no choice in the matter, they were born Muslim and so they must marry another Muslim or suffer the pain of death, since marrying a non-Muslim dishonors the family. Even dating an infidel can result in an honor killing, which there are thousands upon thousands each year and which I decline to give links to since I want to keep this article down to less than 5,000 pages.
Answering Islam, THE VERSE OF THE SWORD: SURA 9:5 AND JIHAD
One of the most frequently quoted Qur'anic verses is chapter 9 verse 5. This verse is known as "The Verse of the Sword." Muslim terrorists cite it to justify their violent jihad. Correspondingly, critics of Islam claim that it commands Muslims to act with offensive aggression towards the non-Muslims of that period, and contributes to Islam’s final theological doctrine of aggression towards all non-Muslims of all times. Apologists for Islam claim that 9:5 is purely defensive. Which side is right?
As the Islamic source materials are examined it will become evident that verse 9:5 is part of the theology of jihad and is meant to be both offensive and defensive. It is directed against Pagans living both near to and far away from Muhammad.
The Religion of Peace, Are Muslims allowed to make friends with Christians, Jews or other non-Muslims?
Qur'an (5:51) - "O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people."
Islam - The Modern Religion, A Commentary on The Qur'an 4:34
As for those (women) on whose part you fear ill-will and nasty conduct, admonish them (first), (next) separate them in beds (and last) beat them. But if they obey you, then seek nothing against them.
