A reader wrote to me and pointed out that he had noticed that often what New Zealand Muslims say to the media does not match Islamic texts.
His first example was what he called a “puff piece” article from the Otago Daily Timesthat was written not long after one of the many Islamic terror attacks in the Western world. Quote.
Muslim imam Mustenser Qamar said the Quran strongly condemned terrorism, but not everybody realised that.
“There’s no form of terrorism allowed in Islamic teachings,” he said
“These people, I like to call them ‘so-called muslims’, because they’re not acting on Islamic teachings. End quote.
Typically after every such attack, Muslims are interviewed by the media and tell us that “Islam doesn’t support terrorism”.
These two verses from two of Islamic texts, however, contradict the above claim. quote.
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror, 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.
– (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220)
“Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority: their abode will be the Fire: And evil is the home of the wrong-doers!”
– Quran (3:151)end quote.
The Islamic Women’s Council of New Zealand responded to comments made by disgraced Imam Dr Mohammad Anwar Sahib by saying…
While we may disagree with aspects of Jewish theology, and may have political disagreements, we see the Jewish people as closely connected to us through the Abrahamic tradition. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had good relationships with his Jewish neighbours and encouraged Muslims to do the same. We are permitted to eat their kosher food, and we offer them our respect.
These quotes from Islamic texts contradict the Islamic Women’s Council of New Zealand.
O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.”
– Quran 5:51
“And well ye knew those amongst you [Children of Israel] who transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath: We said to them: “Be ye apes, despised and rejected.”
– Quran 2:65
“The Jews were made to come down, and Allah’s Messenger imprisoned them. Then the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina (it is still its marketplace today), and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and had them beheaded in those trenches. They were brought out to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men. As they were being taken in small groups to the Prophet, they said to one another, ‘What do you think will be done to us?’ Someone said, ‘Do you not understand. On each occasion do you not see that the summoner never stops? He does not discharge anyone. And that those who are taken away do not come back. By God, it is death!’ The affair continued until the Messenger of Allah had finished with them all.”
– Al-Tabari, Vol. 8, p. 35, See Also Ishaq:464
In fact, Muhammad’s dying words included a curse on Jews for building their place of worship at their prophets’ graves.
When the last moment of the life of Allah’s Apostle came he started putting his ‘Khamisa’ on his face and when he felt hot and short of breath he took it off his face and said, “May Allah curse the Jews and Christians for they built the places of worship at the graves of their Prophets.” The Prophet was warning (Muslims) of what those had done.”
– Sahih Bukhari 1:8:427
“Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do not greet the Jews and the Christians before they greet you and when you meet any one of them on the roads force him to go to the narrowest part of it.”
– Sahih Muslim 26:5389
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”
– Sahih Muslim 41:6985,
Finally, a completely different reader contacted me this week to point out how the words reported by the MSM from FIANZ do not match their actions. He wrote…
Taqwa Mosque is still listed on FIANZ. The imam at the mosque is the same who believes he is due an apology for being exposed saying that women should not leave the house without permission and that Jews are the enemies of Muslims. FIANZ spoke against him and stood him down from their board but still endorse his mosque.WTF?
It is hard to escape the feeling that just like in other Western countries Islam is the religion of sweet little lies to prevent non-Muslims from being spooked by the truth. They actually have a special word for it.
deception; the islamic word for concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies.
