Obama, ‘The Prophet of Islam’ and Slander

Pages: 1 2

During his speech to the UN General Assembly yesterday (Tuesday, 9/25/12) Mr. Obama proclaimed,

The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.

He rapidly cloaked this bold statement regarding Islam, alone, with a pretense of ecumenism, by adding

But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.

This latter statement rings hollow. Mr. Obama and his State Department have never condemned, let alone actively sought to preclude—in real time and with specificity—the ongoing Muslim jihadist ravages against Christians and other non-Muslims across the length and breadth of Islamdom, often perpetrated by so-called US “Muslim allies,” and/or purveyors of “moderate Islam.”  Even on the domestic front, one still awaits any Obama administration commentary on the “Piss Christ” revival, an exhibit originally funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts—particularly in light of their endless condemnation of the previously marginal, amateurish video, “Innocence of Muslims.”

Moreover, Mr. Obama, as is his (and his administration’s) wont, ignored altogether the virulent Muslim Jew-hatred borne of canonical Islam, that is both endemic and epidemic within Islamdom, and has nothing to do with “Holocaust denial.”  For example, when Mr. Obama delivered his June 4, 2009 Cairo speech, he opened by lavishly praising Al-Azhar University’s “thousand years” as “a beacon of Islamic learning.” Yet just 6-months earlier, a front page New York Times story (published 1/10/ 2009), included extracts from the Friday (1/9/2009) Al Azhar mosque sermon at this same pinnacle of Sunni Islamic religious education, pronounced by Egyptian-government appointed cleric Sheik Eid Abdel Hamid Youssef. Referencing well-established Antisemitic motifs from the Koran (citations provided, below), Sheikh Youssef intoned,

Muslim brothers, God has inflicted the Muslim nation with a people whom God has become angry at [Koran 1:7] and whom he cursed [Koran 5:78] so he made monkeys and pigs [Koran 5:60] out of them. They killed prophets and messengers [Koran 2:61 / 3:112] and sowed corruption on Earth. [Koran 5:33 /5:64] They are the most evil on Earth. [5:62  /63]

Sheikh Youssef’s sermon was redolent with the canonical Islamic Jew-hatred that punctuated the 14-year tenure (1996 to March, 2010) of late Al-Azhar Grand Imam—Sunni Islam’s Papal equivalent—the late Muhammd Sayyid Tantawi. Tantawi’s 700 page academic magnum opus, Jews in the Koran and the Traditions, includes these words rationalizing Muslim Jew-hatred:

[The] Koran describes the Jews with their own particular degenerate characteristics, i.e. killing the prophets of Allah [Koran 2:61/ 3:112], [see Al-Azhar  Sheikh Saqr’s Koranic citations] corrupting His words by putting them in the wrong places, consuming the people’s wealth frivolously, refusal to distance themselves from the evil they do, and other ugly characteristics caused by their deep-rooted lasciviousness…only a minority of the Jews keep their word…[A]ll Jews are not the same. The good ones become Muslims [Koran 3:113], the bad ones do not….[T]he Jews always remain maleficent deniers….they should desist from their negative denial…some Jews went way overboard in their denying hostility, so gentle persuasion can do no good with them, so use force with them and treat them in the way you see as effective in ridding them of their evil. One may go so far as to ban their religion, their persons, their wealth, and their villages.

Tantawi (in April 2002) also reiterated the Koranic depiction of  Jews as “enemies of Allah, descendants of apes and pigs,” and sanctioned the legitimacy of homicide bombing of Jews.

Consistent with this ugly, if widespread phenomenon, writing at the Muslim Brotherhood’s website in 2009 (identified extracts translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism), current Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi expressed the same Koranic Jew-hatred, decrying “the herd of Zionists, descendants of apes and pigs,” who were ostensibly usurping so-called Islamic land, i.e., Jerusalem—which Morsi viewed as  a grave offense to Islam. With apparent relish, Morsi further predicted Israel’s destruction.

In the end the peoples will remain and the regimes disappear sooner or later, and the usurping intruding Zionist entity will disappear with them.

This hateful Muslim rhetoric and the murderous behaviors it inspires (and inspired earlier, across space and time), originated with Muhammad, “the prophet of Islam,” whose putative “slander” Mr. Obama warned does not augur a viable future for the “slanderer.”  Thus, just before subduing the Medinan Jewish tribe Banu Qurayza and orchestrating the mass execution of their adult males, Muhammad invoked perhaps the most striking Koranic motif for the Jews debasement — he addressed these Jews, with hateful disparagement, as “You brothers of apes.”

    Like it did in North Africa, India and the Far East, finally Islam has come to stay in US and the West. Never in the history of the West have we been so defenseless, timid, corrupt and naive, ideal conditions for a cult of death masquerading as religion, to make a home in especially when Islam has found itself an ally in Western progressive lefty fascists. We are in the final death throes, people. Praise Obama, the Mahdi.

    Close the thread. June's comment cannot be improved upon.

      I share the sense of despair but we must not give into it completely.

    Spoken like the true muslim he is! Building up mohammed – yes, we know, that camel caravan killer.

    I wanted to comment on this, but unfortunately Allah has turned me into a Tiger Quoll and I no longer sport opposable thumbs. Some of my best friends have been turned into dogs: labradors, vizslas, pit bull mixes – I see them on the street every day. Also I think Allah may have messed with my mind?

      It may be that, Bill Ayers—or Valerie Jarrett or any of a dozen others—told Obama to use that technique—what is it? "Just shine 'em on."?

    Ah, the Cairo "apology" speech comes up again! The speech where he told the same Arabic/Muslim audience:

    "America's strong bonds with Israel are well known. This bond is unbreakable. It is based upon cultural and historical ties, and the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied."

    One of the many times he mentions Israel, specifically, as a Jewish state.

    Another typical passage from Obama:

    "My administration's commitment to Israel's security has been unprecedented. Our military and intelligence cooperation has never been closer. Our joint exercises and training have never been more robust…. When the Goldstone report unfairly singled out Israel for criticism, we challenged it. When Israel was isolated in the aftermath of the flotilla incident, we supported them. When the Durban conference was commemorated, we boycotted it, and we will always reject the notion that Zionism is racism. When one-sided resolutions are brought up at the Human Rights Council, we oppose them. When Israeli diplomats feared for their lives in Cairo, we intervened to save them. When there are efforts to boycott or divest from Israel, we will stand against them. And whenever an effort is made to delegitimize the state of Israel, my administration has opposed them. So there should not be a shred of doubt by now — when the chips are down, I have Israel's back."

    Now, Mr. Romney holds much the same view. In fact, there is no significant difference between Mr., Romney and Mr. Obama on Israel. None.

      How dare you expose the obvious weaknesses of the right-wing talking point, sir!
      I am indignant about your efforts to bring a sense of proportionality and truth to this forum. The purpose here is to create prolefeed!

      • Western Canadian

        Your purpose here is to preen and strut. Sadly, all you do is make an ass of yourself.

    • Western Canadian

      Rmney dared to point out the fact that the 'pelestinians' do not want peace. Rather radical move. Obama mouths words all the time, while meaning the opposite of what he says. In case you didn't notice.

    • tagalog

      It's conceivable that there's no "significant difference" between Obama and Romney on WHAT THEY SAY about Israel. Where things become more problematic is in what they do, or are going to do if elected.

    • Kufar Dawg

      Really? Obama wants Israel to unilaterally return to the pre-1967 borders. Relatively indefensible borders that feature land gained over the course of repulsing a genocidally motivated invasion of Israel by islamofascists.

  • Chanameel

    The "goal" is and always has been to take "Jerusalem."
    Obama, once he pushes Israel back to 1967 borders, will then
    move our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
    From there Pharoah Obama can rule the world
    and unify the world under his flag of Islam.
    He has to deliver Jerusalem by the Mayan Calendar time frame of December 21, 2012 – 2016.

    • deprogrammer

      Mayan Calendar you say? Really? That's what you're basing all your political analysis on? You do realise that the end of Mayan Calendar wasn't meant to indicate the end of the world? Or that you are using a calendar made by people who didn't even know about the eastern hemisphere to make your predictions?

  • Andy

    Obama is totally focused on winning the election. He would sell his children to win. He would have become aware that the murder of the ambassador in Libya brought focus on his anti-American foreign policy and began to turn away folks who were devoted to him so he needed to make a speech (the very first where he mildly chided his real people, the Muslims) while forced by his heart to concurrently appease them. That's what the speech was all about. Every move he makes these days is designed to win him votes. The man must be got rid of and indicted.

    • Kufar Dawg

      I'm sure his election committee or even the DNC, isn't above a little voter fraud to move the process along either.

  • AntiSharia

    It's not slander if it's true.

    • JoJoJams

      In western logical thought. In the muslim mindset, "slander" is something that gets the accused "upset" – whether or not it's true. Hence all the rioting over when people "mock" mohammed, by speaking THE TRUTH about what he did, in light of modern western morals.

  • Thomas Wells

    Respect freedom. Reject Islam.

  • Ghostwriter

    Gee,and Muslims continue to wonder why many Americans have so little respect for their religion. Could it be because of attempts to destroy freedom of speech? I wonder.

    • Jon_Babtist

      Have some respect Ghostwriter. Islam is the religion of peace and if you say otherwise they will kill you.

    No Muslim with young children would allow a person with Muhammad’s reputation to sleep one night at their home. The “Blood Libel” was once used as an excuse to murder Jews now it has been turned into The “Muhammad Libel”, but the hatred stays the same.

    • Radegunda

      “No Muslim with young children would allow a person with Muhammad’s reputation to sleep one night at their home.” —
      Actually, I believe that many would, if it served the cause of Islam. A great many Muslim parents value Islam over the lives of their children, and many do not hesitate to kill their own children in the name of Islam. Sharia gives indulgence to parents who kill their own offspring.

  • popseal

    Our DHIMMI president is doing the bidding of CAIR at the dangerous expense of America itself. If he were only wrong, there might be some excuse for him. His motives are clear and all Islam loves him for them.

  • Horace

    The Nakoula video was basically vignettes of sura and verse from the koran and the haditha with a little extra confusion thrown in at the beginning. Wasn't slander. Was only offensive to Muslims so they have an excuse to riot and kill and demand suppression of free speech so they can jihad their way to world domination a little faster.
    Obama is obviously a Muslim, using a little socialism to suck in students, labor union types & the liberal and atheist NPR crowd of dumbells so he can get reelected and advance Jihad some more.

  • Jon_Babtist

    Obama supported his Islamist cousin Odinga who ran for office in Kenya on a platform of installing Sharia Law. When he lost there was rioting, church burnings and killings. Jerome Coursi revealed Obama's emails that showed he not only supported the killings and rioting but suggested and encouraged it. To believe for a moment that Obama is not sympathetic to the most virulent for of Islam is to overlook much of what he has said and done.

  • Kufar Dawg

    It sounds as if the islamic definition of slander even extends to unpleasant truths and if it's not slander then it's calumny. This is the ideology by which justice is to be dispensed? No wonder islamic countries are hell holes
    of intolerance, tyranny and injustice, they couldn't really be anything but what they are!
