We hear it all the time as if it were a Universal Truth: Islam is the Religion of Tolerance. In his speech given last month at the Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship held in Washington, President Obama announced a new series of initiatives to help bring business and social entrepreneurs from Muslim-majority countries to the United States (1). He just couldn't help throwing in the absurd lie of the "tolerance of Islam."
When asked to explain the "Spirit of Tolerance in Islam," Muzammil Siddiqi at IslamOnline answered: "Tolerance is a basic principle of Islam. It is a religious moral duty. Islam teaches tolerance on all levels: individual, groups and states."
Interestingly, out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, there is only one group of refugees in the world who have never been admitted or integrated into their new countries. Do you know what group that is? Do you know what countries have refused to take them in for the past 62 years?
Hint number one: the refugees are composed mainly of Muslim Arabs.
Hint number two: The inhabitants of the countries that refuse to admit them in, are mainly Muslim Arabs.
Arab refugees from 1948, great grandparents, grandparents, parents, and children, are still in refugee camps to the present day.
When 750,000 Jews were kicked out of Muslim lands, tiny Israel absorbed every single one of them. Even when non-Jews are persecuted by Muslims, they find sanctuary in Israel.
When 750,000 Arabs ran out of Israel, Muslim countries in the Middle East, with 167 times the land mass of Israel, with 60 times the population of Israel, with all the resources of the entire Arab world, could not find a single square foot of Arab land to share with their poor Muslim brothers.
Islamic tolerance? Oh, please - that is perhaps one of the greatest of Muslim lies. It's bad enough they hate Christians and Jews, that they loathe and despise their own is just plain intolerable.
"We’ve joined interfaith dialogues and held town halls, roundtables and listening sessions with thousands of people around the world, including with many of you. And like so many people, you’ve extended your hand in return, each in your own way, as entrepreneurs and educators, as leaders of faith and science.“
“His comic books have captured the imagination of so many young people with superheroes who embody the teachings and tolerance of Islam. After my speech in Cairo, he had a similar idea. In his comic books, Superman and Batman reached out to their Muslim counterparts. And I hear they’re making progress, too.”
