Was Christopher Columbus Hero? Islamophobic American Christians Must Read

Much of the hatred and propaganda against Muslims is coming from American fundamentalist Christians who happen to be 'patriots'.
One wonders whether they actually know the truth about Christopher Columbus or whether they just celebrate Columbus Day without a thought as to his impact on the indigenous people and the crimes attributed against men. One wonders if American Christians proclaim Columbus as a Christian hero.
One can only imagine the propaganda campaign if some nut job from Boko Haram, Al Shabab, ISIS (IS) or Al Qaida did something on par with Christopher Columbus and his men. Oddly, Columbus is seen as a hero within American Christian circles!
Christopher Columbus was not a hero
Columbus wasn't a hero. When he set foot on that sandy beach in the Bahamas on October 12, 1492, Columbus discovered that the islands were inhabited by friendly, peaceful people called the Lucayans, TaĆ­nos and Arawaks. Writing in his diary, Columbus said they were a handsome, smart and kind people. He noted that the gentle Arawaks were remarkable for their hospitality. "They offered to share with anyone and when you ask for something, they never say no," he said. The Arawaks had no weapons; their society had neither criminals, prisons nor prisoners. They were so kind-hearted that Columbus noted in his diary that on the day the Santa Maria was shipwrecked, the Arawaks labored for hours to save his crew and cargo. The native people were so honest that not one thing was missing.
Columbus enslaved the native people to work in gold mines
Columbus was so impressed with the hard work of these gentle islanders, that he immediately seized their land for Spain and enslaved them to work in his brutal gold mines. Within only two years, 125,000 (half of the population) of the original natives on the island were dead.
If I were a Native American, I would mark October 12, 1492, as a black day on my calendar.
Christopher Columbus' men and the  sexual slavery of 9 and 10 year old girls
Shockingly, Columbus supervised the selling of native girls into sexual slavery. Young girls of the ages 9 to 10 were the most desired by his men. In 1500, Columbus casually wrote about it in his log. He said: "A hundred castellanoes are as easily obtained for a woman as for a farm, and it is very general and there are plenty of dealers who go aboutlooking for girls; those from nine to ten are now in demand."
Torture, amputations and brutality
He forced these peaceful natives work in his gold mines until they died of exhaustion. If an "Indian" worker did not deliver his full quota of gold dust by Columbus' deadline, soldiers would cut off the man's hands and tie them around his neck to send a message. Slavery was so intolerable for these sweet, gentle island people that at one point, 100 of them committed mass suicide. Catholic law forbade the enslavement of Christians, but Columbus solved this problem. He simply refused to baptize the native people of Hispaniola.
Burning slaves alive and feeding babies to hungry dogs
On his second trip to the New World, Columbus brought cannons and attack dogs. If a native resisted slavery, he would cut off a nose or an ear. If slaves tried to escape, Columbus had them burned alive. Other times, he sent attack dogs to hunt them down, and the dogs would tear off the arms and legs of the screaming natives while they were still alive. If the Spaniards ran short of meat to feed the dogs, Arawak babies werekilled for dog food.
Columbus' cruelty was 'pardoned'
Columbus' acts of cruelty were so unspeakable and so legendary - even in his own day - that Governor Francisco De Bobadilla arrested Columbus and his two brothers, slapped them into chains, and shipped them off to Spain to answer for their crimes against the Arawaks. But the King and Queen of Spain, their treasury filling up with gold, pardoned Columbus and let him go free.
Columbus' men tests their blades on children, beheadings, rapes and dismembered bodies
One of Columbus' men, Bartolome De Las Casas, was so mortified by Columbus' brutal atrocities against the native peoples, that he quit working for Columbus and became a Catholic priest. He described how the Spaniards under Columbus' command cut off the legs of children who ran from them, to test the sharpness of their blades. According to De Las Casas, the men made bets as to who, with one sweep of his sword, could cut a person in half. He says that Columbus' men poured people full of boiling soap. In a single day, De Las Casas was an eye witness as the Spanish soldiers dismembered, beheaded, or raped 3000 native people. "Such inhumanities and barbarisms were committed in my sight as no age can parallel," De Las Casas wrote. "My eyes have seen these acts so foreign to human nature that now I tremble as I write."
Millions of natives killed off
De Las Casas spent the rest of his life trying to protect the helpless native people. But after a while, there were no more natives to protect. Experts generally agree that before 1492, the population on the island of Hispaniola probably numbered above 3 million. Within 20 years of Spanish arrival, it was reduced to only 60,000. Within 50 years, not a single original native inhabitant could be found.
In 1516, Spanish historian Peter Martyr wrote: "... a ship without compass, chart, or guide, but only following the trail of dead Indians who had been thrown from the ships could find its way from the Bahamas to Hispaniola."
History of slave trading and Columbus
Christopher Columbus derived most of his income from slavery, De Las Casas noted. In fact, Columbus was the first slave trader in the Americas. As the native slaves died off, they were replaced with black slaves. Columbus' son became the first African slave trader in 1505.
Quotes taken from the Huffington Post
Islamophobic American fundamentalist Christians would do well to learn their own history rather than  attempting to demonise and dehumanise Muslims in order to justify and encourage the invasions and bombings of Muslims in the Middle East and beyond!

Muslim Reaction to Bristol Sex Ring

This is a sick story, as a Muslim it's especially shocking and disappointing to see that people of a Somali background are the abusers here. Somali people are generally Muslims and are good conservative people.

The news article does not mention the religion of these criminals but it's important to remind folk that Islam does not allow such corrupt actions as there are some Islamophobes out there who will use the misery of raped women to hate-monger against Muslims.

Opposing Sexual Grooming of Children - Alyas Karmani

In the last couple of years Muslims in the UK have been blamed by the media for "sexual grooming of children" Although the majority of people convicted of this crime were non-Muslims. Muslims are the only ones being mentioned in the news as ("MUSLIM" Men Sexual Grooming Girls).

Thirteen men have been convicted of running a sex ring that saw teenage British girls abused, raped and prostituted.

Victims were sexually abused and passed around the men's friends for money in Bristol.
The court heard several of the girls were groomed to the extent they believed abuse was part of loving relationships they were having with the defendants.

The gang, all of whom are of Somali origin, faced more than 40 charges involving 10 victims aged between 13 and 17, mostly over offences that happened from autumn 2012.

Seven men were convicted at Bristol Crown Court on Wednesday and six following a separate trial in May, but details of the cases can only be revealed now after reporting restrictions were lifted by a judge.

Some of the girls were persuaded to have sex with their 'boyfriend's' friends after being told it was Somali "culture and tradition" and "men always have sex with each other's girlfriends".

Described as "vulnerable" due to their age and circumstances, the victims were paid as little as £30 or given drugs, alcohol and gifts to perform sex acts on older men.

The court was told of one night that saw a 13-year-old girl raped four times by three different men, after being trafficked across the city to a budget chain hotel by one of her abusers. [MSN]

Heroic Saudi Restaurant Owner Bans Women

This guy is a hero. This man cares so much for women and piety that upon noticing flirting in his restaurant he seems to have banned single women saving them from harassment and other problems from males.

Of course, the propaganda play against actions such as these is that these men are anti-women etc. but the reality on the ground is that actions such as these are not motivated by misogyny but simply a desire to maintain a society which against premarital sex.
Perhaps a solution to this problem would be to have segregation in the restaurant, so have a female only area, male only area and a mixed area for couples and families.
We in the West could do with more people like Saudi restaurant owners as we do have a problem with pre-marital sex here. Western Christians are finding it difficult to oppose premarital sex so one would expect them to be looking for help, this is where Muslims could certainly help out.
Restaurants in Saudi Arabia have been asked to remove signs which forbid entry to single women, it appears.

The request comes from the kingdom's National Society For Human Rights, which says the signs on the doors of eateries are "illegal", the Arabic-language Al-Hayat newspaper reports. A restaurant owner says he put up the signs because of "numerous incidents" of flirting. "We'll only remove these signs when we make sure such incidents never happen again on our premises," he told the paper.

NSHR spokesman Khalid Al-Fakhri tells the Saudi Gazette that restaurants have no legal right to exclude single women from their premises, or insist that they are in the company of a guardian. "These signs are against the law and reflect the personal opinions of the restaurant owners," he says, urging establishments to devise alternative arrangements if they think that customers are behaving inappropriately. The paper quotes one woman as saying, "If they're going to ban us from entering restaurants, where are we supposed to go?" - pointing out that restaurants are some of the few establishments where Saudi women can go unaccompanied. [BBC News]

Christian Islamophobes may well be making a song and dance over these Saudi restaurants but the reality is people like Paul of Tarsus were staunchly against premarital sex:

Christian Head Coverings Stops Sexual Sin - According to Paul

The Christian Islamophobes who may have a go at the Saudi restaurant owner would do well to reflect on the following piece...

UK is corrupting immigrants from Eastern Europe while UK Christian Islamophobes obsess over hate-mongering against Muslims

Christian Islamophobes in Britain work an agenda of hate and fear mongering against Muslims and Islam using the mainstream media and the internet. Examples of such would be, the presentation of Pakistani Muslim men as predators of white English girls and portraying Muslims as terrorists.

Christian Islamophobes in Britain are frustrated people. They have chosen to go after Muslims as Muslims are seen as an easy target. You see, these Christian Islamophobes lost their battle (or did not even enter into a battle) against pre-marital sex, homosexuals in the UK and defamation of Christianity on British TV.

One wonders why the British Christian Islamophobes are so intent on hate mongering against Muslims all the while pretty much ignoring the anti-Christian norms of the UK.

Here's one such irreligious norm of promiscuity. Here in the UK we have Catholic immigrants who are conservative relative to British standards migrating to Britain and winding up becoming much more promiscuous than they ever would in Poland.

Not to get into which Christians are more practicing  (Catholics or Protestants) the point here is, why are the British Christian Islamophobes not dropping their propaganda campaigns against Muslims and Islam in order to actually bring about much needed change to the UK - namely helping to promote sex within the confines of marriage.

Haters are less useful to society - clearly these haters (British  Christian Islamophobes) are not of much use to British society.

Here's a snip from an Daily Mail article on the impact of British society on Polish women:

Polish women become more promiscuous and more likely to engage in sexually risky behaviour after settling in the UK, according to a new study.

The research suggests that young Polish women enjoyed four times as much sex after moving to the UK than they did in their strict Catholic homeland.
And not only were they having sex more often, young Polish immigrants were often engaging in riskier activities such as group sex and swinging - and were more likely to cheat on their partner.

Grazyna Czubinska, who carried out the study at the Polish University Abroad in London, said: 'What was surprising was that Polish women have sex four times more often than they would back in Poland.

'In addition, women are branching out and using various means for fulfilling their sexual needs, including swinging, group sex and online.' She said that while such behaviour may usually the result of excessive alcohol consumption in Poland, in the UK, drugs were more likely to be a factor.

British Muslims facing job discrimination

Muslims give more to charity than other religious groups, new research suggests.
At almost £371 each, Muslims topped the poll of religious groups that give to charity.
When they donated last year, atheists averaged £116, The Times reported (£).
The ICM poll found that Jewish donors gave an average of £270 per person.
Roman Catholics averaged just over £178, Christians just under £178 and Protestants £202.


Also see, Muslims have least sex outside of marriage (least adultery and least fornication):

Naomi Wolf: Hijab and Veil Does not Suppress Women

I've been through Naomi Wolf's The Beauty Myth and it was quite insightful into learning more about how the West operates in destroying women's self esteem so much so that they become consumers of not only copious cosmetics but also cosmetic surgery.

Naomi Wolf is an American feminist who does not espouse negative views on the Hijab as she, rather than swallowing Western post 9-11 propaganda, has actually visited Muslim countries and spoken to Muslim women about such topics.

Comparing Muslim women's dress to the skimpy MTV style dress

Naomi Wolf (in red, quotes taken from The Sydney Morning Herald) contrasts the Muslim woman dressed according to Islam with skimpily clad non-Muslim women in Europe and North America. She does suggest this represents the discomfort the Christian/Secular West has with Muslims.

A woman swathed in black to her ankles, wearing a headscarf or a full chador, walks down a European or North American street, surrounded by other women in halter tops, miniskirts and short shorts. She passes under immense billboards on which other women swoon in sexual ecstasy, cavort in lingerie or simply stretch out languorously, almost fully naked. Could this image be any more iconic of the discomfort the West has with the social mores of Islam, and vice versa?

Think about it, the blunt truth in comparisons such as these is that nobody wants to be told the women of their tradition don't value themselves relative to another to those of another tradition. Perhaps Western societies do feel this is what Muslim women dressed according to Islam are effectively intimating? Perhaps this is behind France's ban on the hijab? Perhaps the cosmetics and fashion industry don't want the Hijab to become popular in the West as it means women will be more inwardly happy and thus less inclined to buy cosmetics, cosmetics procedures and the latest outfit worn by Victoria Beckham or Kim Kardashian? Perhaps corporations which are so influential in the capitalistic West feel threatened by Muslim women dressed according to Islam as they fear it will encourage the consumers of  cosmetics and fashion to eschew such in favour of  Islamic dress.

Part of Islamophobia is to attack Muslim women and their dress sense

Naomi Wolf  points out that the West's attacks on women in Islam is part of Western Islamophobia

Ideological battles are often waged with women's bodies as their emblems, and Western Islamophobia is no exception. When France banned headscarves in schools, it used the hijab as a proxy for Western values in general, including the appropriate status of women. When Americans were being prepared for the invasion of Afghanistan, the Taliban were demonised for denying cosmetics and hair colour to women..

Are Western non-Muslims blind to the oppression and pressure to conform to a certain look Western women are under?

Naomi Wolf offers some though provocation for Western readers who don't understand Islam:

But are we in the West radically misinterpreting Muslim sexual mores, particularly the meaning to many Muslim women of being veiled or wearing the chador? And are we blind to our own markers of the oppression and control of women?

As I have lived in the West all my life I can testify to the blindness of  my fellow Brits when it comes to the tools of oppression used against Western women. How many of my fellow countrymen and women would even deign to think magazine covers with airbrushed models s actually a form of oppressing and destroying the self esteem of women here in the West? You really ought to read Naomi Wolf's The Beauty Myth if you cannot see how this is the case.

Feminist author: Hijab and Niqab (veil) do not suppress or repress women's sexuality!

Naomi Wolf destroys Islamophobic claim against Hijab and veil

Naomi spells it out quite clear here, the Western Ismaophobic propaganda of oppressed women in Muslim lands due to veiling is far, far from the truth. How does she know? Well she actually visited Muslim countries and spoke to Muslim women

The West interprets veiling as repression of women and suppression of their sexuality. But when I travelled in Muslim countries and was invited to join a discussion in women-only settings within Muslim homes, I learned that Muslim attitudes toward women's appearance and sexuality are not rooted in repression, but in a strong sense of public versus private, of what is due to God and what is due to one's husband. It is not that Islam suppresses sexuality, but that it embodies a strongly developed sense of its appropriate channelling - toward marriage, the bonds that sustain family life, and the attachment that secures a home.

So here we have Naomi, perhaps the most famous feminist author on the planet stating categorically that Islam does not suppress or repress Muslim women's sexuality!

Naomi Wolf just knocked Western propaganda about Muslim veiled and hijabi women out of the park. Way to go Naomi!!!

Veils and Hijabs are a sign that women value themselves

Outside the walls of the typical Muslim households that I visited in Morocco, Jordan, and Egypt, all was demureness and propriety. But inside, women were as interested in allure, seduction and pleasure as women anywhere in the world.

At home, in the context of marital intimacy, Victoria's Secret, elegant fashion and skin care lotions abounded. The bridal videos that I was shown, with the sensuous dancing that the bride learns as part of what makes her a wonderful wife, and which she proudly displays for her bridegroom, suggested that sensuality was not alien to Muslim women. Rather, pleasure and sexuality, both male and female, should not be displayed promiscuously - and possibly destructively - for all to see.

So Naomi Wolf learned that Muslim women (and men) don't want to display their sexuality and sexual pleasure publicly and promiscuously. This actually goes back to Anne F Downs comments and advice surrounding the chatter around a female celebrity appearing nude on the front cover of a magazine. According to her acts such as displaying nudity for all to see is devaluing oneself:

"We are worth more than this. While the human body is beautiful, this particular display does not add to or celebrate the value and strength of her as a woman. These photographs are not a great reflection of the worth of a woman."

So if we were to expand on that thought, with Muslim women covering themselves and not displaying their flesh publicly and promiscuously this would mean Muslim women are actually valuing themselves by dressing Islamically and those who are in skimpy clubbing dresses or exposing themselves through pictures, webcams etc. are indeed devaluing themselves.

It's interesting to note a world renowned feminist author is actually supporting Muslim women and the Hijab. Great. I just hope and pray this type of thoughtful approach becomes widespread. Women al over the world need to be veered away from this false notion of conservative dressing is oppression. The true oppression is the media machine of the corporations which destroy the self esteem of women based on their looks and body shape so they can sexualise them through expensive fashion, cosmetics, dieting and cosmetic surgeries.

Christian Islamophobes should think

The other interesting thing here is, a lot of Christian Islamophobes abound who rattle off the same Western propaganda which Naomi Wolf has destroyed. These Christians clearly have not looked into the teachings of Christianity and the head covering (according to Christianity women should value themselves more and dress more modestly):

Naked Pics of Female Celebrities - A Message to Muslim Teen Girls + Kim Kardashian

Really this is for all women. Apparently, a popular female celebrity is the talk of the internet because of some naked magazine photos.

An article by Annie F Downs offers some good advice that should also be passed on to Muslim girls and parents too as the celebrity culture is increasingly impacting on Muslim households.

As for naked pics on the internet of yourself and celebrities

Don’t be naked on the internet. Ever.

We are worth more than this. While the human body is beautiful, this particular display does not add to or celebrate the value and strength of her as a woman. These photographs are not a great reflection of the worth of a woman.

What the internet says about your body does NOT determine your worth. Positive or negative. What [some celebrities] are displaying for every teen girl is, “look! show it all and everyone will LOVE you!” No. No they won’t. They will not respect you, they will not honor you, they will not love you. They will look at you, and they will use you, but it will be short lived and way less awesome than you are imagining.

Also, while we’re here. Likes on your instagram post don’t decide if you’re awesome or not. RTs of your tweets aren’t the what make you valuable. The comments on your posts don’t judge your worth. To quote my friend Cassie, “your online presence is not who you are. It is not your heart. It isn’t your soul. And it is certainly not your value.”

Kim Kardashian, Angelina Jolie or Beyonce ; should women and girls strive to look like them?

There is not one body that is THE female standard. She is not what we are all supposed to look like. This woman is not our standard. The world will try to convince you, with just a few simple photographs, that we should all look like that. We shouldn’t. I should look like the best version of me, you should look like the best version of you, and we should not feel pressure to conform our bodies into any one shape.

Kim Kardashian is reported by the Daily Mail to have claimed to be a Christian. I'd like to invite her to become a Muslim. Islam is a religion which honours women unlike the Hollywood celebrity industry which pressurises women to move away from the natural and become sex objects for viewers of music videos, magazines, internet websites as well as other media outlets.

Allah does not judge a person based on their hair texture, height, figure or skin tone. Allah is our Creator. He created us all and to Him we shall all return. Allah sent to mankind messengers (amongst whom were Jesus, Moses, Muhammad, Abraham, Noah and others pbut). We must worship Allah alone.

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, Allah does not look at your appearance or wealth, but rather He looks at your hearts and actions.” [Source: Sahih Muslim 2564]

Invitation to Kim Kardashian and others to convert 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 of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.

Do Muslims see Evangelical Christians as Attention Whores?

Here's a comment I received related to the video below

Many of these evangelical christians are attention whores. Their desperate attempt to malign Islam through extreme bigotry is downright silly and laughable. Their obsession of extreme misinterpretation and silly arguments just shows how much far far off they are from the message of Jesus himself. Such is their stupidity, instead of promoting christianity which they believe in, they promote islamophobia and extreme anti-muslim bigotry hoping to allure audiences towards christianity.

I do think there is a wave of attention-seeking within the online apologetic and evangelical Christians who speak about Islam. Much of their material is in line with the right wing hate-mongering and attempts to demonise Muslims on a larger scale. A lot of smacks of pure bigotry - you can imagine some of them would have been wearing white conical hats of the Ku Klux Klan if they lived in a different era.

Muslim Response: Extremists Hijack Bus And Kill 28 Non-Muslims

As Muslims we need to get the word out there that the reported actions of Al Shabab extremists are indeed unislamic. If we fail to do so there will be more ignorant crimes such as the killing of 28 non-Muslims in a bus hijack as well as more hatred of Muslims (Islamophobia) around the world.
The stakes are high!
While the right wing revel in the murders of 28 non-Muslims in Kenya by reportedly Al Shabab militants the informed Muslim is condemning the murderers and telling folk that these actions are totally unislamic.
While the right wing misuse this horrific terrorist act to hate-monger against Muslims informed Muslims are denouncing the attack, considering the families of those lost ones as well as getting the word out that Islam does not allow such terrorism in order to stop this type of ignorant crime taking place in the future.

Report from Sky News:
Al Shabab militants have hijacked a bus in Kenya, with gunmen singling out 28 non-Muslims and shooting them dead, according to police.
One officer said the passengers, who were travelling to Nairobi, were "brutally executed" by the Islamic extremists. His colleague claimed that the 60 people on board were told to disembark, and then sorted into two groups based on the faith they professed.
The attack took place in Mandera, a town on the border between Kenya and Somalia. An estimated 100 militants were involved.

According to a regional police chief, the extremists were planning to drive the non-Muslims into Somalia, but the bus became stuck.Al Shabab, a well-known terror organisation, was also responsible for the attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, which left 67 people dead. The group, which has been fighting to topple Somalia's government, said last September's massacre was in retaliation to the continued presence of Kenyan troops in the warring country
Terrorist act of hijacking a bus in Kenya and killing 28 non-Muslims is a CRIME according to Sharia (Islamic Law)

The Islamophobes are spreading the lie that Islam allows acts such as the bus hijack and killings in Kenya. Here we see this lie refuted in 10 seconds by a Muslim scholar!

Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad's 10 second comment destroy the Islamophobes' false narrative of 'Islam preaches terrorism'. He states, according to Sharia, terrorism is classified as Hiraba (Hirabah) which is punishable by death. Thus we learn, Sharia is against terrorism.

What is Hirabah?

The term hirabah refers to public terrorism in a war against society and civilization.  In legal terminology it is defined as “spreading mischief in the land,” but its precise meaning, as defined by Professor Khalid Abou el Fadl, is “killing by stealth and targeting a defenseless victim in a way intended to cause terror in society.”  This is the Islamic definition of terrorism.  It is the very opposite of jihad.
The term hirabah comes from the root hariba, a verb that means to become angry and enraged.  By derivation the nown harb (pl. hurub) means variously “war” and “enemy.” 
[Dr. Robert D. Crane, Hirabah versus Jihad,]

Here's Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad informing us that terrorist acts such as those carried out on the World Trade Center are actually seen as a crime punishable by death according to Sharia. He distinguishes between Jihad and terrorism - the two are not the same thing. The Sheikh highlights another important point to take away; terrorism does not have its origins in Islam, it's something that was borne from the French revolution and 19th century anarchist movements as well as pointing out that terrorism is an expression of westernization!

Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad also mentions the lack of reporting in the West of what the official Muslim position on matters actually is.

Response to "Muslima Teen Deemed ‘too Western’ teenager beaten by family"

The right wing are using the story of a teenage girl in Italy who was beaten up by her family for being 'too Western' as a stick to attack Muslims on a whole.

Firstly, they say the teenager was a 'Muslima' (female Muslim) despite the article not mentioning her religion. The right wing simply presume the family are Muslims as it mentions her Moroccan father. Would the right wing like it if American teens who crazily shoot up their classmates were reported as 'Christian' around the world simply assumed fromtheir American nationality? Of course not, so why do it to Moroccans or folk from other Muslim countries?

Secondly, the right wing juxtapose this news story with honor killings. We have already seen honor killings are not part of Islam (see below)

Thirdly, I can see that generally actions of violence seem to be a substitute for lazy parenting. Surely, if you want your child to grow up with the values of Islam then it's better to invest time, money and energy into seeing your child has an Islamic upbringing where he/she is nurtured and educated rather than being lazy and just threatening or using violence whilst the child has never received that nurturing. Mosques around /Europe really need to employ imams who can advise Muslim parents on raising children with Islamic values as well as connecting Muslim males and females to the mosque from an early age.

(ANSA) – Forli, November 21 – A 15-year-old girl who was viciously beaten up by her family and locked in a bathroom because she was “too Western” has been entrusted to the social services after hospital treatment.
Right wing Islamophobe gets the truth on Honor killings from Muslim scholars
Pamela Geller entitles a video, 'Islamic Honor Killings in the West'. This is a contradiction of terms as Islamic Law opposes honor killings.

Pamela Geller wrongly claims that honor killings is a practice under Islamic Law (Sharia). This is a blatant falsehood. In the video we see Dr Bilal Phillips teach that Honor Killings is not allowed according to Islamic Law - in fact he teaches that the Sharia (Islamic Law) sees honor killing as MURDER which is punishable by execution.

It's interesting to notice how Muslim scholars such as Dr Shabir Ally, Hamza Yusuf and Dr Bilal Phillips all disagree with the wild assertions of Pamela Geller concerning the Islamic view on honor killings. Sadly, people like Pamela Geller continue to spread their ignorance and prejudice and the scholarly voices are being drowned out.

Watch Pamela Geller's falsehoods on Honor Killings and Islamic Law are corrected by clips of Hamza Yusuf, Dr Shabir Ally and Dr Bilal Phillips

If video does not play, see

Aside from the misinformation Pam Geller presents about Islam's view on honor killings the other worrying aspect of her work is her misappropriating of pictures of the victims of honor killings. Islamophobes such as Geller will trample on the misery and the hurt of others just to pursue their agenda of attacking Islam and demonizing Muslims. Truthful and sincere people don't do this.

Another point that came out of the video is that honour killings, as mentioned by Hamza Yusuf, have a long history and indeed are not simply peculiar to Muslims. Hamza Yusuf menions that it has taken place in Arab Christian communities as well as Mexico. Of course, honor killings are not limited to these communities - all communities have experienced honor killings be they Sikh, Hindu, Jewish, Atheist, Buddhist etc.. Hamza Yusuf mentioned the figure of 20 million abortions having been conducted in America, isn't this at least in some instances a form of honor killing?

And finally, Dr Shabir Ally mentions those who perpetrate honor killings are not following the Quran, he then mentions that he can find something that can be described as honor killing in the Bible. I Wonder if Pamela Geller would call Dr Shabir Ally and ask him for the Bible references and then make a video about Christianity and Honor killing entitled 'Christian Biblical Honor Killngs'? Guess she won't. Guess the donations and other support she receives would diminish quite considerably if she did. That's the nature of the business of ISLAMOPHOBIA!

Sheikh Ahmad Kutty teaches honor killings are NOT Islamic:

“There is no such concept in Islam that is called “honor killing”. Islam holds every soul in high esteem and does not allow any transgression upon it. It does not allow people to take the law in their own hands and administer justice, because doing so will be leading to chaos and lawlessness. Therefore, based on this, Islam does not permit such killings.”

Honor killing in the Bible, NOT Qur'an, Dr Shabir Ally:

Here's a comment I received concerning Sam Shamoun of the Answering Islam website on the video below

I like how this videos exposes the lies constantly told by Sam. Hope his followers study his teachings and see the falsehood in it because technically it's a criminal act to hijack a religion based on lies, mockery, and hatred

Christian Militancy: Ted Shoebat and Walid Shoebat

Theodore Shoebat will certainly have got a few pulses racing amongst the Christian evangelical community with his views on Christian militancy in the Bible.

Of course, the majority of Christians will denounce Theodore's exegesis of the Bible. The interesting thing here is, some of these Christians would also be amongst the Islamophobic mass which is trying to convince everybody that the extremist views of terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center are representational of Islam.

The hypocrisy is clear for all to see!

Here, Theodore Shoebat offers extreme interpretations of his Bible yet the Christian masses will denounce him as non-representational of Christianity, all the while a group of Islamophobes within the Christian community are claiming the extremist views of terrorists are representative of Islam and all Muslims.

No, it doesn't work like that. You have to be consistent.

Terrorist groups are not representative of Islam just like Theodore Shoebat and Walid Shoebat are not representative of Christianity. When people choose to use their faith as a vehicle to manifest their inner demons, hatred and lust for bloodshed then they are not operating within the confines of their faith. Simple.
Theodore Shoebat called a Jihadist: Christian militancy

Theodore. the son of Walid Shoebat, uses the Bible as evidence for his idea of Christian militancy being an inherent part of Christianity.
Ted Shoebat believes 1 Timothy 2:1-2 is a cornerstone of crusading as Shoebat thinks Paul teaches Christian militancy in the form of protecting the church from violence via violence.
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. [1 Timoth 2:1-2 NIV]
The church should punish people according to Ted Shoebat

Theodore Shoebat believes 1 Peter is teaching the Church to punish anybody who is teaching a belief which contradicts Trinitarian Christianity. According to Ted Shoebat this verse means Muslims, Mormons, , Jehovah Witnesses and homosexuals should be 'punished'. Shoebat believes Russia is the only country which is acting on 1 Peter in punishing non-Christian groups. Shoebat also lambasts the USA because America does the 'opposite of what Peter' teaches.

or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. [1 Peter 2:14New International Version (NIV)]

Ted Shoebat: Romans 13:3 teaches Christians to terrorize others

Theodore Shoebat believes Romans 13 is teaching Christian governments to terrorize Muslims, homosexuals and Jews.

For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended.   [Romans 13:3New International Version (NIV)]

The Church Fathers taught Christian militancy including St Augustine according to Ted Shoebat. Watch the video for the relevant quotes.

Ted's father is a radical, Walid Shoebat has views which support the killing of innocent people.

Walid Shoebat shows his hand

On a Christian missionary satellite TV show (ABN) Walid Shoebat revealed his desire to nuke (nuclear bomb) Muslims. I was lost for words. Here we have a Christian fundamentalist who bangs on about “Islam is violent” yet he wants to eradicate Muslims from the face of the earth. Self projection on the part of Walid?

Walid Shoebat on ABN Sat reveals his extreme hatred (2 minute video)

I was surprised the host, Samar Gorial, never rebuked him for such a comment. In fact they carried on merrily with the rest of their show – "Jihad Exposed" – yes, that’s what they named the show. I guess the only “Jihad” they exposed was Walid Shoebat’s nuclear “Jihad”.

Muslims should be balanced

We as Muslims should be mindful of Islamophobia but always maintain fairness and distinguish between the moderate Christians and the extremists. NOT all Christians want to butcher us – in fact MOST would OPPOSE Walid Shoebat’s views. Walid’s views are certainly not compatible with the teachings of Muhammad or Jesus (pbut).

Quite where this radical Christian acquired such views is beyond us. I sensed Walid is cut off from a path constructive path and has fallen onto a destructive path. I invite Walid Shoebat to Islam so he can adopt a constructive path in which he is at peace with his Creator.

May Allah protect and guide us all. Ameen.
