Who is Really Distorting Islam?

"All of us recognize that this great religion (Islam), in the hands of a few extremists, has been distorted."

Barack Hussein Obama

"Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all!"

Ayatollah Khomeini

While we now know that a young Obama rebelled against his mother and attended Koran classes, he clearly  didn't attend nearly enough of them. Or the Harvard genius is back to playing dumb.

According to Obama, and so much of the political establishment, the Koran is being distorted by a "few extremists" somewhere who are trying to convince the billion peaceful Muslims, that it actually promotes violence. But first a few obvious questions.

How many exactly is a "few"? Are we talking about a few dozen, a few thousand, a few million? Naturally Obama and the Islam apologists never really address that question. Because it is a rather inconvenient question. Since Muslims are defined by religious streams and mosque attendance, it should be easy enough to come up with a realistic figure.

We could start with the population of Saudi Arabia, which ranks at some 25 million. That is quite a "few" extremists right there. Then there's Pakistan with a population of 166 million. That's a few more, right there. Of course officially both countries are allies of the United States and have nothing to do with terrorism. Even when it's funded by their own governments.

So let's move on to a slightly more definitive figure. In 2006, the Palestinian Arabs held an election. 440,000 of them voted for Hamas. A terrorist organization. In the 2009 Lebanon election, a coalition that included Hezbollah and the Baath Party won over 800,000 votes. So certainly we know that there are more than 1 million "misunderstanders" of Islam out there. And that's out of a tiny portion of the Muslim world.

But as to the next question, is the vast majority of Muslims and their mosques and clergy are peaceful, then how can those who "distort its vision" ever be a real threat? If there is nothing of violence in Islam, then what exactly can they do? Re-edit the Koran? Insert verses that don't exist there. But when asked about Jihad, even Barack Hussein Obama is forced to backpedal and say, that it has a lot of meanings in Islam. But if Islam is peaceful, then how could there be a non-peaceful meaning at all?

"Well, the phrase jehad has a lot of meanings within Islam. It is subject to lot of different interpretations."

Barack Hussein Obama

"Jihad means the conquest of all non-Muslim territories. Such a war may well be declared after the formation of an Islamic government worthy of that name, at the direction of the Imam or under his orders. It will then be the duty of every able-bodied adult male to volunteer for this war of conquest, the final aim of which is to put Qur'anic law in power from one end of the earth to the other."

Ayatollah Khomeini

Islamic apologists love to hide behind phrases like "Jihad has many meanings". We could also say that "Mein Kampf" has many possible meanings and interpretations in German. It could refer to a struggle getting out of bed in the morning, or the struggle to promote world conquest and genocide. While in Islam, Jihad can mean the struggle to get out of bed in time for morning prayers, it also can and does frequently mean the struggle to promote world conquest and genocide.

The Koran is fairly straightforward about these things. It uses Jihad to clearly and unambiguously mean fighting non-Muslims. To pretend otherwise, is like pretending that Mein Kampf was probably written about Hitler's struggle to get through art school.

Nazism wasn't built on Hitler's art school efforts, and Islam wasn't built on Mohammed rising early to pray to the dunes. They were both built on war and conquest. Without war and conquest, Islam would have been nothing more than another obscure cult of interest only to National Geographic photographers. With Jihad, it became a horrifying wave of terror and death that destroyed cultures, subjugated peoples and turned daily life into a horror for countless millions. 

"We affirm that Hindu or Muslim or Christian or Jew or any other religion; we all need to treat each other with respect and dignity"

Barack Hussein Obama

"Believers, take not Jews and Christians for your friends. They are but friends and protectors to each other."

Koran 5:51

Here Obama is arguing with the Koran. And it is impossible to win an argument about the nature of Islam with the Koran.

Obama might like to pretend that the Koran is about how snowflakes, puppies and unicorns... but it's a xenophobic creed which actively promotes hate toward non-Muslims. Islam does not pretend that non-Muslims are the equal of Muslims, not legally or socially. It imprisons them in ghettos, treats their lives as worthless and enslaves them at will.

The best evidence of this is the status of non-Muslims in the Muslim world. While the number of Muslims in the West continues to grow, the number of Christians and Jews in the Muslim world continues to shrink. Most Jews have fled the Muslim world. They are even fleeing Western countries with large numbers of Muslim residents. The Vatican recently held a synod to discuss the vanishing Christian communities of the Middle East.

If Islam were tolerant, then it would play host to thriving Christian, Jewish, Bahai and Zoroastrian communities. Instead it has put the boot down on them. Not because a few extremists in a cave hijacked a tolerant religion, but because this is the real face of Islam. This is what Islam has always been like.

"The overwhelming majority (of Muslims) want peace, justice, fairness and tolerance."

Barack Hussein Obama

"Convert to Islam, and then you will be safe, for if you don't, you should know that I have come to you with an army of men that love death, as you love life."

Caliph Abu Bakr, Mohammed's Successor

Who is really distorting Islam? Is Barack Hussein Obama correct that Islam's vision is being distorted by a few men in caves somewhere, or is Obama the "distorter" of Islam?

Even a brief reading of Islamic history makes the answer all too obvious. It is not Al Qaeda that is distorting Islam, but Obama. And not Obama alone. Liberal elites in the West have firmly dedicated themselves to misrepresenting and distorting Islam, in order to continue Islamic immigration into the West. To filling America, Europe, Canada, Australia and all the rest up, until every little boy is named Mohammed, and every little girl has to cover her face, or have acid thrown in it.

Is the former self-proclaimed "Jakarta street kid" in the White House really ignorant about what Islam represents, or is he playing a double game. It does not take a genius to simply look at the Muslim world, and compare the average level of human rights in it, with the average level of human rights in Christian and Jewish countries, and come to some rather obvious conclusions.

But while liberals assail Judaism and Christianity, condemn America and Israel, their choirs of academics and politicians sing the praises of Islam. If you believe them, then there is nothing wrong with Islam. Just a few black sheep like Al-Awlaki and some bigoted Islamophobes in America. But if that's the case, then why is the Muslim world so ugly? Why does it mistreat women and minorities? Why does it have the state sponsored murder of gay men? Why does it send Christians to reeducation camps? Why does it adopt the Mein Kampf as a second Koran and preach the murder of Jews?

There is only one answer. There is something rotten in Islam. And for all the poison that Obama may pour into our ears, it is he who is distorting Islam.

Wonderful post. This really exposes obamas 'distortion' of islam. There r some hindus also who distort is by comparing it with upanishidic oneness by comparing it wit koran..

An upfront muslim and an apologist for islam (whether muslim or non-muslim) are essentially two sides of the same camel.

One side bites and spits at you, while the other side blows out hot air whilst going all out to piss / crap on everything normal people hold dear.

Even though you are provable right (one can point out all the hate preaching suria's), you can not put all the blame on Obama for his double talk as he is after all the president of the USA and perhaps tries by his soothing words about Islam and Muslims to strengthen the "moderate" elements. Moreover politicians are habitually not speaking the truth that is part of their profession.

Anonymous said...

He knows all too well what Islam is, as do the apologists throughout politics and the media. That they will deceive their own people with impunity shows the utter contempt they hold them in.

Proud Brit.

Kudos for another great piece. And Proud Brit has it exactly right.

David Barry O'Connor said...

"All of us recognize that this great..." country is in the hands of the most evil elements in it's history.
When, next you hear the term "Executive Order" think 'Federal Fatwa'.
Now, if you want to go father afield about "this great religion" look at its history of predatory aggression, enslavement and dissimulation (Such as equating it with a religion.)

Paul said...

Well said. There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. There are only Muslims who do not understand or care about the beliefs they profess to hold.

We in the US are obliged to respect the right to embrace any religion that a US citizen wants to embrace. But we are not obliged to ignore aggression from any religious community whose authority rests outside of our country and especially our sworn enemies in the Muslim world. And Islam is not just a sworn enemy of the US, it is a sworn enemy of anyone who is not Muslim.

Speaking of misrepresenting Islam to their audience, SK here is an article on an American South Asia website for South Asian issues by a NON-Muslim Indian Male, Amitava, attacking the ex-Muslim Somali woman Ayaan Hirshi Ali, "Letter to a Young Islamophobe"

This should not have been posted at all on this site since Ayaan Hirshi Ali has nothing to do with South Asia. The only reason the author Amitava wrote this slam against AHA that has nothing to do with South Asia is he has a pro-Islam crusade and attempts to make it really uncomfortable for any South Asian on the site to say anything about Islam in all posts. This is how far Islam apologists will go. They would never even write something like that to defend Hinduism or any other Indian religion, only Islam. Islam can do nothing wrong, Hinduism and other can do nothing right. It is a popular American South Asia site. So big (President Bush and Obama) and small (Letters to a Young Islamophobe), there are those who make everyone who criticizes Islam into an Islamophobe and intimidates everyone else to not going against their pro-Islam views without facing the same demonization. If you do respond going against the grain, you comments may even get deleted, so you have to be super careful on how to phrase your dissent. Everyone not googoogaga about Islam is forced to walk on egg shells if they want to speak up at all. This is not free speech and open discussion but PC fascism.

As ever, too rash to have something to say; I forgot my compliments to you in this article (though you have replied to my emmail.)
I noticed your side-listings, especially on Jewish History.
Consider, as you may; Touro Synagogue, Washington't Letter and wiki's stuph on Chaim Solomon and David Franks; the latter two dynamic personalities in the brith of America.
Though of the goyim, I'm proud of our Jewish heritage in this country.

Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog said...

Yes, and Washington's letter is quite crucial, as I have written, because it sets out the American idea, as opposed to the liberal notion of tolerance

Anonymous said...

Again Daniel hitting the nail on the head with another fatwah-worthy post.

All the ruling classes of the western world knows very well the life of Mohamet, and therefore the books about his life i.e Qur'an/sunna - they want the oil and gas &. and would sell us for a whore in the process.

It is well known about abrogation of 'nice' texts with later, hateful texts, the 'nice' texts are just used for taqqiyah.

Our ruling classes seek to erase our culture of critical thinking by vilifying us and taking us to court as if it will make us stop discussing- Geert Wilders, Elisabeth Sabbadich - Wolffe, in the meantime bending over backwards to accommodate the Islamic culture i.e Oklahoma must allow something unconstitutional to supersede the ancient, Constitutional, legal one. The turning a blind eye to the do-it-yourself slaughter of goats under unhygienic conditions, not the regulatory Halal abbatoir for yet another Eid (Al Adha)*, the ignoring of the daily death-toll of Muslims and non-Muslims alike, not a hint of an appeal to the OIC for a UN Resolution and the deafening silence of Imams globally.

*Eid Al Adha is another stolen celebration from Judaism, it replaces Isaac with Ishmael as being bound - check this out FOR YOURSELVES Surah 37:99-113 NO MENTION OF ISMAIL!!! It is added (so much for do not add to nor diminish from the Torah, but this isn't Torah). In verse 112 it gives the birth of Isaac, but we all know that Hagar and Ishmael were sent away to live in Egypt years ago and Ishmael was most likely married while Abraham was binding Isaac; Ishmael wouldn't have had a clue what was going on with his father and half sibling.

The spirit of Mohamet knows that this event is pivotal in the Torah and its understanding was purposely stolen. Lying and thieving is the essence of Islam (not muslims - Islam).

Last of all, after the birth of Isaac (verse 112) and the blessings it gives with a teaspoon, go onto verse 113 where blessings are removed by the shovelful. kate b

In what way, or reference, does Islam adopt Mein Kampf as a "second Koran"?

When you read the comments by readers of "Letters to a Young Islamophobe" in the American South Asian site Sepia Mutny slamming Ayaan Hirshi Ali you will see the typical Muslim (this time by Indian Muslims) rant against Israel. One person thinks AHA sounds more like a blood thirsty mass murder because she justifies the "occupation" of Palestinians. Again, Ayaan Hirshi Ali has nothing to do with South Asia especially her position on Israel/Palestine, but you see here non-Muslim Islam apologists with Muslims of Indian origin dominating a South Asian blog where there are South Asians of many religions - and all the dharmic religions were historically brutally persecuted by Muslim invaders down to the present day as you see non-Muslim populations suffer under the two states savagely carved out of India to be Islamic states, Pakistan and Bangladesh, as well non-Muslim populations in India suffering never ending Islamic terrorism up to this day. There is less and less tolerance for people with views that are not pro-Islam lately. You can be anti-Hindu all you want and that is seen as being pro-liberal, but any criticism of Islam even to speak up for Hinduism and you are called names you are dismissed and persona non grata. This increasing take over of community sites such as this by Islam apologists both Muslim and non-Muslim is troubling. Every South Asian has to either tout the pro-Islam anti-India/Hindu anti-Israel/Jew party line or be quiet or immediately be labeled an Islamophobe and face hostility. Who are they to shape the South Asian view? Why should Muslim needs be greater than Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, Sikh needs and rights? Why should Muslim problems with people like Ayaan Hirshi Ali and Israel that have NOTHING to do with India be pushed on to South Asians and the only view accepted is the one Muslims like?

It isn't just the MSM but ethnic community sites that Muslims are a part of that aggressively push the same Islam apologist view to the community even when it is a diverse community. I think in someways this is more effective propaganda since it is at the community level done supposedly by people you consider part of the community (in this case South Asian), more than someone distant and outside the community like the President. The tone in those community sites like Sepia are worth noting overtime.

Great job. I am sickened by this man and want nothing more than to see him exposed and thrown out of office.

For the person who wants to know about Mein Kampf and muslims, do the research. It is vital to understanding the threat we face.

And the man in the White House is a mole. Whether placed or not, it doesn't matter. He is actings as a mole, burrowing deep within and spreading his lies everywhere.

Trying to play on the motives of moderate muslims? He is lying; his purpose is irrelevant. And he is lyng about the greatest threat of our time.

He is despicable.

Now that the true look a-like of Allah and the head of a penis has been exposed, will the Muslim population start the process of “beheading” the head of their serpent? They are in love with beheading infidels so here is an opportunity to whack another head it would seem. This would be called population control and would be in-line with Barack Obama’s czar, John Holdren’s ideology and we can say that it is an excellent place to start!
