It appears that UCLA may be teaching rhetoric & polemics while ignoring logic. Last spring, the Student Council passed a resolution against "islamophobia", intended to ban criticism of Islam. The David Horowitz Freedom Center responded with an advertisement placed in the Daily Bruin.The advertisement uses a list of recent terrorist incidents to illustrate the falsity of the islamophobia meme. The proof is reinforced by citations to Islam's canon of scripture & tradition:
joint response. Of course the response did not contest the above listed Qur'an & hadith citations. Instead, it revealed the arrogance & illogic of the enemies of liberty.
So Horowitz brought the MSA together with J Street as friends. There is one little problem: Allah forbids Muslims to be friends with Jews.
By forming an alliance with J Street, the MSA have put their souls in jeopardy; they are in a state of sin, swinging their balances to the left.
wrongly identifying terrorists
When Muslims engage in terrorism, in whose name do they perform it? Terrorists have made us familiar with takbir: "Allahu Akbar!" . They shout takbir while detonating themselves and slitting throats. There is something Allah said, that he would "cast terror":
8:57. Allah told those "with eyes to see" to "take admonition" after the destruction of one Jewish settlement. He told Muhammad that the Jews were more afraid of him than they were of Allah in 59: 13. Allah commanded Muslims to build a mighty army to "strike terror" into the "enemies of Allah" and "your enemies". 8:60. And Moe said that he was made victorious with terror. Muslims are commanded to emulate Moe, so we must expect them to be terrorists since their role model was one.
Isolate, label, exclusion & suspicionThe key words inform us of an important fact: the authors are students of Saul Alinsky.
feel unsafeThe ad states verifiable facts about Islam. Exactly how does that you feel unsafe? Did the ad contain an exhortation to assemble with torches & pitchforks to roust the enemy? Did it call for the establishment of extermination camps? If the ad contained either explicit or implicit threats, why don't you point them out? This is America; we are Americans. What need is there to express another identity? Don't UCLA students identify with this nation?
embedded messageThe ad's title leaves nothing to the imagination; it says that fear & loathing of Islam is rational and well founded on Islamic texts and actions. There is no hidden, subliminal message; the ad is open, not cryptic.
implicatedAre you Muslims? Do you believe in Allah; his promise & threat? Believers are Allah's slaves, purchased with the promise of Paradise, so that they fight in his cause, slaying and being slain. The Qur'an makes this crystal clear in 9:111. Fighting in Allah's cause guarantees you a place in the celestial bordello::61:10
Shirking jihad condemns you to eternity in the fire: 9:38. If you take "any step" to injure or enrage disbelievers, you get extra credit toward a better seat in the celestial bordello: 9:120. If you are obedient believers, you are implicated.
actions of extremistsWas Usama an extremist or was he a believer, obeying Allah and emulating his messenger? Moe waged war, pillaged & plundered. He lopped off the heads of 900 men and boys who surrendered after a two week siege. Return to 33:26-27 and examine Sunan Abu Dawud 38.4390. What Moe said and did is normative Islam, not extremism.
tiny percentageAccording to Moe, 999/1000 are going to Hell. Those going to Paradise are the tiny percentage. Remember that jihad is fard al-kifaya, not fard ayn. Only those called to fight are directly obligated the rest are excused once a sufficient number have responded. "Seventy-thousand or seven-hundred thousand of my followers (the narrator is in doubt as to the correct number) will enter Paradise holding each other till the first and the last of them enter Paradise at the same time, and their faces will have a glitter like that of the moon at night when it is full."
criminalization of a religionIslam is a crime syndicate; a predatory way of life, not a religion. David Horowitz can not make Islam criminal, Moe did. Islam's mission is mercenary.
"The spoils are for Allâh and the Messenger." "And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad )], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer,"...
..."You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter."... Another declaration, bowdlerized by Khan but included in Bewley's translation, leaves little to the imagination. Bukhari Ch 61 # 2756: ...It is mentioned from Ibn 'Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, "My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command. There is more, and I will gild the lily with it. Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
"The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us. " Moe also said that the keys to the treasures of the world had been given to him. He said that his companions would spend the treasures of Rome & Persia in jihad. Another of his sayings brings the matter into focus: ..."By Allah, I am not afraid that you will be poor, but I fear that worldly wealth will be bestowed upon you as it was bestowed upon those who lived before you. So you will compete amongst yourselves for it, as they competed for it and it will destroy you as it did them." ... Moe feared that they would get too much of spoil & jizya. His companions shared that fear, thinking that it would be deducted from their reward in the celestial bordello. ..."Then worldly wealth was bestowed upon us and we were given thereof too much. We are afraid that the reward of our deeds have been given to us in this life." 'Abdur-Rahman then started weeping so much that he left the food. "... One hadith in the collection of Abu Dawud makes the issue crystal clear beyond any shadow of doubt. read and re-read it until reality sinks into your consciousness. Sunan Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:
Jihad, commerce & agriculture are alternative economies; Jihad is preferred. What would they give up and what should they return to? Jihad is their "original religion". What is jihad? The legal definition is given in Reliance of the Traveller, O9.0: "Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, "... .
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.
