MUSLIM NATIONS DENY BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS

The basis of Islam, the Muslim religion, is the Koran or Qur'an, both of which are names for the Islamic Bible. There are so many seeming contradictions in it that it can be used to support about anything, from a peaceful religion, to a very violent religion that promotes the murder of "unbelievers." It can be used to support the murder and terrorism which is engaged in so much by Muslims, and supported by many of their spiritual leaders.
We therefore need to look at the actual practices of Muslim nations to determine their respect or disrespect for individual freedom. When we do this, we find that Muslim countries do not allow freedom of religion, freedom of speech, or freedom of the press. These are our three most basic freedoms in America. They are the first ones listed in our Bill of Rights.
A person who converts from Islam to Christianity can be put to death. From Times Online, March 20,2006 (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/article743292.ece):
An Afghan who has renounced his Islamic faith for Christianity faces the death penalty under Afghan law in a throwback to the brutal Taliban regime.
"Rampaging Muslims have killed 10 Christians, injured 61 others, destroyed nine churches and displaced more than 500 people in northern Nigeria, according to eyewitnesses – all because Muslim high school students claimed a Christian student had drawn a cartoon of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad, on the wall of the school’s mosque." (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=58015)
A very distinguished English novelist, Sir Salman Rushdie, wrote the book, The
Satanic Verses, which many Muslims considered "insulting" to
Islam. He received many death threats from Muslims in different countries.
"Faced with death threats and a fatwā
(religious edict) issued by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, then Supreme Leader of
Iran, which called for him to be killed, he spent nearly a decade largely
underground, appearing in public only sporadically." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salman_Rushdie)
London Muslims "Celebrate" 9/11. "An obscene spectacle took place in North London on September 11, 2002. A thousand Muslims gathered at the Finsbury Park mosque to "celebrate" the bombing of the World Trade Center. The Metropolitan Police deployed a force 500-strong to protect the meeting, called 'A Towering Day in History,' from disruption. A dozen or so menacing-looking men with kaffiyehs over their faces stood on the mosque’s steps to prevent unfriendly journalists from entering." (http://www.city-journal.org/html/12_4_sndgs03.html) In the United States, such demonstrations would have been severely dealt with by a very angry people, and many Muslims here spoke out against it, although some praised it, even here. Generally though, it brought on quite a backlash against Muslims, and a number of Muslims here were trying to ease that backlash. There is no question that a large number of Muslims around the World support this kind of murder and terrorism.
In this country, there have been many instances, particularly since the liberal and homosexual movements that started in the 1960s, of all kinds of blasphemy against the Bible and Jesus. One example was Andres Serrano's photo of a Crucifix in a jar of urine, entitled "Piss Christ," and shown in an art exhibit supported by the National Endowment for the Arts. Many cartoons have been published depicting Jesus with horns as the Devil, and in other degrading ways. But in this country it is all allowed as "free speech."
In contrast, in 2006, a Danish
newspaper published a satirical drawing of the prophet Mohammad, and it caused a
great stir all over the world. "The dispute spread to London for the first
time. More than 500 people, led by the extremist group al-Ghuraba, formerly al-Mujahiroun,
marched to the Danish embassy in Knightsbridge carrying banners calling on
Muslims to 'massacre' those who insult Islam and chanting: 'Britain, you will
pay, 7/7 on its way.'" (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2006/feb/04/muhammadcartoons.pressandpublishing)
Dmitry Radyshevsky received his BA in journalism from Moscow State University, his Master of Theological Studies degree from Harvard University and his PhD from the Hebrew University (Jerusalem). He made a speech in London in 2007, and it is all worthwhile reading. The following are excerpts from the speech. (http://www.jerusalemsummit.org/eng/js_london_radyshevsky.php)
Why is it so hard to understand that Islamism is moving against us as mercilessly as Stalinism and Nazism did? Why does the mainstream keep denying it? For one thing, Islamism is much smarter. Imams are fond of quoting the Koran which says: "Allah is the great deceiver" – and they encourage their flock to deceive the enemy – that is, us. Long ago, it was simple: the Reds and the Nazis were on one side, and we were on the other. And both times we were attacked on one front only. Now we are being attacked on seven fronts at the same time.
1 st - Military Jihad. Wherever Satan feels he can stop the advancement of Biblical civilization by violence, be it conventional or guerrilla warfare, from Afghanistan to Kosovo, from Bali to Baku – he is on the attack. Islamists are determined to stoke the fire of Jihad until we give up extinguishing it.
2 nd - Political Jihad. Islamists have outnumbered countries of Biblical civilization at the UN and other world forums. They take teeth out of our resolutions and corrupt our politicians. For all that they use the 3rd Jihad, economic.
[3 rd] Economic Jihad is not only the chains of oil dependency. Islamists are buying up all what they can not conquer yet by military Jihad. They are buying up the Third world: by investing billions of Saudi petro-dollars into the vital businesses and infrustructure in Asia and Africa . You think it’s globalism, you think the profit motive is uniting everybody, but they think it’s economic Islamism and the Prophet Mohammad – not the profit - is uniting everybody.
4 th - Educational Jihad. There are 30,000 madrassas in Pakistan alone where thousands of boys learn ideology of Wahhabism. This is a non-stop assembly line of perfect jihad warriors. Moreover, Islamic schools and universities on your soil, in Britain , funded by your taxpayers are spreading contempt and hatred of you; they are buying up and intimidating your academics to endorse it and laugh in your faces.
5 th - Proselytizing Jihad. The largest Jihad goes on in the Third world. Africa is becoming an Islamic continent. Every bowl of rice to the starving Africans donated by Saudis comes with a demand to convert to Islam. This is by contrast to the Red Cross that does not load its food with faith. By the way, it may not sound politically correct, but it has to change.
6 th - Demographic Jihad – with 4 wives each, Moslems outnumber Christians everywhere – in Africa and even in India. Last month your Daily Telegraph newspaper reported that "Mohammad is now the most popular baby name in England and Wales." And these Mohammeds do not want to integrate into British society, they want to integrate you into Ummah, the global Islamic community.
And the last one, the most important – Ideоlogical Jihad. This one is based on proving to you that your whole narrative is wrong. That your moral claim to lead humanity is illegitimate. That the Bible is not the Light onto the world.
We are afraid to appear politically incorrect and give up multiculturalism. Yet multiculturalism is an inverted racism. As we call on tolerance towards sharia - wearing the burka, honor killing, stoning, limb cutting, and pogroms in response to cartoons – we in fact say: we are people of high culture, we value freedom of expression and personal freedom, women’s equal rights, and so on – but these people do not, and such is their culture. Yet God gave human rights to all people equally. And if we say that these rights are alien to Moslems, then in fact we mean that Moslems are inferior, and thus we are guilty of racism, cynically called multiculturalism.
The primary purpose of Islamic Terrorism is the imposition of the beliefs of Islam on the world. It has a long and violent history. For further reading on this, including attacks on this country and its citizens prior to 9/11, see the material at the end of this article.
Liberals in this country loudly cry about the "brutality" and "torture" of terrorist prisoners at our base at Guantanamo Bay, in Cuba. The closest thing to physical torture that I heard of was "waterboarding," which we use to train our own troops. It injured no one. The Muslims can teach these liberals something about real torture and brutality.
The brutality of the Muslim terrorists is hard for an American to imagine. They capture innocent people, torture them, and then behead them. They even make videos of their gruesome procedures. This beheading of "unbelievers" has been common throughout all of Muslim history. It did not start with our invasion of Iraq as many liberals would like us to believe. For a comprehensive article on the history of Muslim beheading, see: Beheading in the Name of Islam, By Timothy R. Furnish, 2005, The Middle East Quarterly. http://www.meforum.org/article/713.
In every Western country where there are large numbers of Muslims, they do not integrate well in the country. They wish to stick to their own customs and ideas – even in the way they dress. Even worse, they work to have the country they are in conform to and allow their ways. Then when there are enough of them, they openly revolt in an effort to impose an Islamic government over their area – or over the whole country into which they have migrated.
The only country that seems to have taken an intelligent stand against the Muslim encroachment is Australia. Officials of Australia have told the Muslim community in no uncertain terms that if they were not satisfied with Australian customs and living under Australian law, they should leave the country. (See http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/australia.asp; and http://www.nytimes.com/2005/08/24/international/europe/24australia-wire.html.)
There is no Muslim country that allows its people the basic human freedoms that we have in America. But we should not let Muslims in this country undermine these freedoms under the false leftist ideas of "tolerance." We would do well to take the same attitude that Australia has, and not let them impose their ways upon us. If they do not wish to adopt our American traditions and way of living, they should be invited to go elsewhere.
