Muslim Response to Israeli Professor's Rape Comments

One can imagine the anti-Muslim propaganda right-wing Islamophobes would churn out if a misguided Muslims was openly discussing the idea of using rape to deter Israeli/American attacks.

Well, it's an Israeli professor who is talking about the use of rape to deter attacks. Guess the right-wing media will not be reporting the comments by professor Mordechai Kedar all that much.

A few points on the sick rape comments by the Israeli professor, Mordechai Kedar:

1. Rape is a crime and a sin. It's a form of oppression. The Israeli professor, Mordechai Kedar,  would do well to look into the teachings of Muslim scholars on rape:

Sheikh Hamza Yusuf and Imam Suhain Webb on rape and rapists

2. Why does this professor even entertain the idea of committing crimes (rapes) against INNOCENT women - being related to a terrorist or a Hamas memer does not make somebody guilty and punishable by rape.

3. Who does Professor Mordechai Kedar suggest carries out these rapes? The IDF? Him?

4. Just because this one Israeli (Mordechai Kedar) has spoken in such a distasteful manner, it does not mean all Israelis agree with this man. Let's not be like the crazy Islamophobes who latch onto the ramblings of an isolated and misguided Muslim for purposes of propaganda against ALL Muslims.

5. Rather than talking about how to punish terrorists or deter them why not talk about what is actually aggravating them so much. What is Israel doing to piss these people off to such an extent? How about Israel stops taking their land, lifts the siege on them and stops killing their kids and other family members. I'd think that would reduce terrorism much more than rape would!!!

Israeli Professor: Rape Hamas Militants' Mothers and Sisters to Deter Terrorist Attacks

An Israeli academic has claimed that raping wives and mothers of Palestinian Hamas militants is the only thing that could deter further terrorist attacks.

The remarks by renowned Middle East scholar Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University were made three weeks ago after the grim discovery of the bodies of the three kidnapped Israeli teenagers, but the recording was published online (in Hebrew) on Monday.

"The only thing that could deter a suicide bomber is knowing that if caught, his sister or his mother would be raped," said Kedar on Israel Radio Bet

"It sounds very bad, but that's the Middle East," he continued. "You have to understand the culture in which we live. The only thing that deters [Hamas leaders] is a threat to the connection between their heads and their shoulders."

To the shocked radio presenter who said that "we cannot take such steps, of course", Kedar replied:
"I'm not talking about what we should or shouldn't do. I'm talking about the facts. The only thing that deters a suicide bomber is the knowledge that if he pulls the trigger or blows himself up, his sister will be raped. That's all. That's the only thing that will bring him back home, in order to preserve his sister's honor."

Kedar served for 25 years in the military intelligence, where he specialised in Islamic groups. He is currently a researcher at the right-wing Begin-Sadat Centre for Strategic Studies of Bar Ilan but previously worked for a shadowy organisation, the Israel Academia Monitor, which fights left-leaning academic professors.

Kedar's words triggered an angered reaction among feminist activists in Israel, who sent a letter to the University president Rabbi Prof. Daniel Hershkowitz in which they condemn Kedar's "words of incitement that grant legitimacy to Israel Defense Forces soldiers and Israeli civilians to commit rape, and endanger both Israeli and Palestinian women.

"Kedar's words echo expressions that treat rape as a remedial practice, although it is a war crime." [From: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/israeli-professor-rape-hamas-militiants-mothers-sisters-deter-terrorist-attacks-1457836]

Invitation to Islam

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.

Christians, why it's good to be a 'Slave of Allah'

Nowadays, shallow Christian apologists present arguments against the Muslim title of  'slave of Allah'. They think the title is not grand. They think there's something better than this. They are mistaken due to their misunderstanding of the title.

For Muslims the title of 'slave of Allah' is an honour. We love it. We want to be good slaves of Allah. Mufti Islam Menk explains this title. An important short clip for Muslims and Christians.

Muslim Response to Israel

#ArtMonday4palestine Sr. Eman shares a powerful piece
 

Muslim Condemns Sick Imam Who Raped a Girl in Mosque

Muslim condemns sex crime and hate


Sexually perverted people belong to all religions. Islam is no different. Sadly for Muslims, when a sick Muslim commits a sexual crime it's used as a propaganda tool to attack all Muslims and even Islam by right-wing Islamophobes.


That's exactly what's happening with the story of a sick imam in Afghanistan who brutally raped a 10 year old girl in a mosque. Notice the parallels between this account and the accounts of Christian priests and pastors who commit similar sexual crimes on young girls and boys. The difference is, the sick sexual crimes by the Christian leaders are, on the whole, not used as propaganda pieces to attack all Christians and Christianity. This is not the case when a Muslim commits similar sick acts:
Kunduz, Afghanistan:  It was bad enough that the alleged rape took place in the sanctity of a mosque and that the accused man was a mullah who invoked the familiar defense that it had been consensual sex.

But the victim was only 10 years old. And there was more: The authorities said her family members openly planned to carry out an honor killing in the case - against the young girl. The mullah offered to marry his victim instead.


As a Muslim I condemn the sick sexual crime committed by this imam regardless of where it took place. However the corruption is even more apparent as he committed his crime in a mosque according to the report.

As a Muslim I pray that this girl makes a full recovery and is protected from further harm. Ameen.

We have already seen Islam does not allow rape as per the comments of famous Muslim scholars.

The worry for this Afghan rape victim is that of honor killing now:

Honor killings in rape cases are common in Afghanistan, and are often more important to the victim's family than vengeance against the attacker. Human rights groups say about 150 honor killings a year come to light, and many more probably go unreported.

Honor killing is another backward practice which learned Muslims have condemned. It's something that is not allowed in Islam as seen in this video featuring Sheikh Hamza Yusuf and Dr Bilal Philips.

All in all, reports of crimes such as these should never be misused for purposes of an anti-Muslim campaign. The ignorant crimes of a Muslim in Afghanistan or wherever is not synonymous with Islam and is not representative of the Muslim global community. Just like the sexual crimes of Christian priests and pastors are not reflective of Christianity and/or other Christians.

Invitation to Islam 

Do you know Muslims believe in Jesus (p)?

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.

Malcolm X, Gandhi, Mandela and Einstein on Israel...

 
Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein and Mahatma Gandhi on Israel
 

The Role of Social Media in Exposing the Israeli Army


Technology is a blessing in disguise for the catastrophe in Palestine (and elsewhere). While the images of the children and innocents murdered by the terrorists (aka the Israeli army) move us to tears and remind us of our helplessness, they also serve to alert the broader public who do not understand the inhumanity of the Israelis who the real perpetrators are.

Muslims are spreading these images amongst themselves, but they do not understand that the average American still ...believes all of Hamas is (and by extension all Palestinians are) a terrorist organization, and Israel is only 'defending itself'. This imaginary narrative perpetuated by mainstream American media stations will only be countered by hard facts - facts that images and videos brilliantly convey. It is difficult looking at the body of a baby with his brains blown out, or dead kids who were playing soccer on the beach, as 'terrorists' that Israel has to defend itself against.

For the first time, we are seeing the beginnings of an anti-Israeli wave, from comedians to singers to Hollywood celebrities. Politicians will be the last, because AIPAC and other pro-Israeli lobbies finance their campaigns. But even politicians will have to come around in the end (as they did for civil rights and other issues that they were themselves not keen on promoting).

Therefore once again, I urge ALL Muslims not to trivialize the role of social media. Post noteworthy news items, images, and videos on your Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Together, and with the help of Allah, we represent a more powerful force than Fox News, CNN, ABC, BBC and all the other groups combined.

Jewish man converts to Islam live on air!

This Jewish condemns the actions of Israel and becomes a Muslim. He took Shahada (declaration of faith) at the hands of Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick.

Jewish man reverts to Islam live on air



During the launch of Penny Appeal's World Record attempt, to break the record for the longest TV charity appeal, we were raising funds for our Gaza Emergency Appeal. A Jewish Man, named Soloman, phoned in and made his Shahada (verbal testimony to become Muslim) live on air! He also donated his first salary of around £900 towards food and urgent medical aid, for Gaza.

Later that evening Soloman went on to sell his car, for £2,000, which he has committed towards providing a much-needed medical room at the Hayfa Medical Centre in Gaza, Masha'Allah!

George Galloway and Gayatri: First Child

By the Grace of God and the limitless kindness of the NHS staff at St Thomas's Hospital Westminster London, Gayatri and George Galloway MP are grateful to announce the birth of their son Toren Mustaqim, a brother to Lucy Zein and Faris.

Toren was born at 3.22am on July 15th after a mammoth period of labour weighing a heavyweight 10 pounds (4.57 kg). Mother and baby are both doing well.

Toren in Gaelic (Irish and Scottish) means both "Chief" and "craggy hill". In Dutch it mean...s "tower". In Arabic it is related to the word for "mountain".

"Mustaqim is from the Arabic"Sirata Mustaqim" meaning "true path" repeated five times daily by Muslims in the "Al Fateha" prayer.

Toren was born to a troubled world but he began his life gazing over at the Houses of Parliament surrounded by a family which loves him.

May the Lord of all the worlds protect him and keep him, let him stand tall and strong, and always on the true path.

Gayatri and George Galloway MP

Malaysian Airlines shot down in Ukraine

A Malaysia Airlines plane with 295 people on board is feared to have crashed in the Ukraine amid claims it was shot down.

TV pictures from the scene showed a pall of smoke billowing into the sky apparently from the stricken aircraft.

The plane is thought to be flight MH17 - a Boeing 777-200 travelling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

In a tweet Malaysia Airlines said: "Malaysia Airlines has lost contact of MH17 from Amsterdam. The last known position was over Ukrainian airspace. More details to follow."

Ukraine's Interior Minister was quoted as saying the plane had been shot down.
The jet would have been flying at high altitude on an intercontinental flight that took it over the crisis hit region of Ukraine, where the authorities have accused Russia-backed separatists of previous attacks on aircraft.

Earlier today the Ukrainian authorities said one of their fighter jets was shot down by an air-to-air missile from a Russian plane and Ukrainian troops were fired upon by missiles from a village inside Russia.

Neturei Karta on Zionism - Dr Yasir Qadhi

From Dr Yasir Qadhi's FaceBook:

The Neturei Karta are a small, unpopular group amongst the Orthodox Jews. They believe that Zionism is a blasphemy of the highest order against Judaism and the laws of the Torah. They stick to the laws of the Torah and believe that it is unholy to steal people's lands and persecute them in the name of religion.

Since they are not blinded by Zionism, they can point out the realities of the Israeli genocide and holocaust being inflicted on the Palestinians.
We Muslims should ...be aware of these groups (and also recognize that they are a small minority that is, unfortunately for us, not representative of mainstream Judaism). I've had the privilege to meet Rabbi Weiss multiple times and consider him to be an ally against the racist apartheid policies of Zionism. 
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuAy2xkeniY&t=4m10s

Along with the Neturei Karta, there are also many secular and liberal Jews who are opposed to the policies of Israel (and at times of Zionism as well) purely on humanitarian grounds. They stand with us in truth and justice - may Allah increase their ranks!

Muslim Scholars Comments on Rape

Muslim scholar, Imam Suhaib Webb, has stated  'Rape is a horrible crime; a horrible sin before God'.

Here we see a comment by Sheikh Hamza Yusuf on rapists. Sheikh Hamza Yusuf believes rape is oppression and injustice:

The rapist oppresses by taking advantage of the physical weakness of his victim. Oppression is a form of injustice, and injustice always occurs from an abuse of power, hidden or manifest. [The Prayer of the Oppressed, Hamza Yusuf,Sandala Productions, 2010, Kindle Loc. 175]
