WHY IT (STILL) MAKES LITTLE SENSE TO CALL ISIS ISLAMIC

ISIS-690x460

Last week, The New York Times’ Rukmini Callimachi published “A Theology of Rape,” a report as important as it is horrifying. Unfortunately, like several recent exposés on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), including Graeme Wood’s website-busting What ISIS Really Wants, Callimachi’s reporting is unusually receptive to the movement’s claims. Namely, that plausible Islamic arguments can be made for slavery, rape, and other crimes.

In support of his own argument that ISIS isn’t just “Islamic,” but “very Islamic,” Wood cited Princeton academic Bernard Haykel who insists that anyone who denies ISIS’ Islamic authenticity is being disingenuous (who says this is never elaborated on). Wood then proceeded to analyze ISIS’ “Islamicity” based almost entirely on Haykel, several fringe Muslim scholars, ISIS sympathizers, and no mainstream voices.

An organization sponsoring a controversial visit to Israel by a number of American Muslim “leaders” is funded by one of a handful of major financiers of extreme Islamophobic groups in the United States.

Internal Revenue Service filings show that the Jerusalem-based Shalom Hartman Institute has received generous funding from the Russell Berrie Foundation in recent years.

This foundation was named in the 2011 Center for American Progress report “Fear, Inc.: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America” as one of the top seven donors to anti-Muslim hate groups in the United States.

CAIRO – The Hollywood biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings” has been banned in Egypt and Morocco over historical inaccuracies and “depicting Allah”, sparking controversy in the North African Muslim countries.

“This totally contradicts proven historical facts,” the Egyptian culture minister, Gaber Asfour, was quoted by Agence France Presse (AFP).

“It is a Zionist film.

“It gives a Zionist view of history and contains historical inaccuracies and that’s why we have decided to ban it.”

According to Asfour, the film that claims that “Moses and the Jews built the pyramids” is rife with mistakes.

The decision to ban the movie followed a meeting of a committee that comprises the head of the supreme council for culture, Mohammed Afifi, the head of the censorship committee and two history professors.

Thomas Jefferson’s Quran: How Islam Shaped the Founders

What role did Islam have in shaping the Founders’ views on religion? A new book argues that to understand the debate over church and state, we need to look to their views on Muslims.
One of the nastiest aspects of modern culture wars is the controversy raging over the place of Islam and Muslims in Western society. Too many Americans say things about Islam and Muslims that would horrify and offend them if they heard such things said about Christianity or Judaism, Christians or Jews. Unfortunately, those people won’t open Denise A. Spellberg’s Thomas Jefferson’s Qur’an: Islam and the Founders. This enlightening book might cause them to rethink what they’re saying.

People protesting against Israel does not make them anti-Semites

People protesting against Israel does not make them anti-Semites. Judaism and Zionists do not follow the same agenda. The prophet Mohamad respected his Jewish friends, visited them when they got sick and allowed the jews to practice their religion freely. The Jews are people of the book, and we carry no hard feelings towards them. It is the Zionists that are reflecting a horrible image about the Jewish community. Most Orthodox Jews are totally against Zionism and against an Israeli state in Palestine since day one. Labelling everyone as an “Anti-Semite” is foolish and sounds desperate for attention. Every time a person writes/shares a status against the brutal actions of the Zionist terrorists, that person will be labelled as an anti-semite? That’s just silly. If you have called someone an anti-semite because they were protesting against Israel, you need some education. Because clearly you’re the one who lacks some basic understanding.

If you heard these rude terms from your friends while protesting against Israel, do not let them bring you down and keep moving forward. You don’t need friends who think murdering children is okay anyway.
