Dawud Walid, the Quran and Jews


Pages: 1 2

In January 2011, he joined imams from 20 local mosques in a meeting with FBI officials to discuss their concerns over FBI surveillance and training tactics. In 2009, he was among four dozen local faith leaders to meet with Department of Homeland Security Assistant Secretary of Intergovernmental Programs Juliette Kayyem.

The May 25 sermons isn’t the first time this year that Walid’s sermons targeted Jews.

When the Quran describes a slaughter of Jews at the hands of Muhammad’s army, it isn’t an indication of anti-Semitism, he said in a Detroit speech in January.

The Jews had it coming.

“Did Muhammad order the killing of Jews?” Walid asked in a Twitter post promoting the video. In response, an Islamist follower wrote, “Yes he did and I agree with it…Well isn’t treason a sentence to death.”

Rather than oppose a hateful perspective, Walid merely corrected the follower and reinforced the anti-Jewish sentiment. Muhammad “didn’t order it. Sa’ad ibn Mu’aadh [one of his followers] ordered that punishment. It was a correct one.”

The reference is to the Battle of the Trench in 627 AD involving Muhammad’s army. “Zionists” use the event to attack the prophet, Walid stated in his speech, by arguing that the Quran and the prophet preached a hatred of Jews.

Jews there entered into an agreement to join with the prophet. But the men “committed treason, [by sitting] with the polytheists against the believers.” For this, all the men of the tribe were beheaded and the women and children were sold into slavery.

“Is this just something that is in Islam for treason? Even for the nations that came before, even in Torat [the Torah] according to what the Jews had at that time, committing treason during a time of war is punishable by death. Because their own book says an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life, and a breach for a breach,” he added.

His endorsement of a mass murder of Jews, with the women and children sold into slavery, and his suggestions that Muslims “shouldn’t be shy” about defending it, reinforce significant concerns about his attitude toward the Jewish community.

Walid’s comments are shocking, said Daniel Pipes, president of the Middle East Forum.

“Here is a ranking official in an American organization that compares itself to the NAACP, an organization respected by the mainstream media, political leaders and law enforcement, and its staffer is justifying the Islamic tradition of a cold-blooded massacre of Jews,” Pipes said. “All ancient religions have legacies that are at times problematic, that make people today feel ill at ease; the usual response is, ‘that was then, this is now.’ But Walid’s not doing this. He’s explaining away the report of an ancient atrocity.”

There is no parallel example of other faiths justifying a massacre in their own histories. “This,” Pipes said, “is far outside the mainstream American political life.”

In his speech about the Battle of the Trench, Walid also stated that Muhammad was not anti-Jewish. Instead he “gave Jewish people their rights.” He claimed that the evidence of Jews invoking God’s wrath is mentioned both in the Torah and in the Christian Bible, providing “proof against them and what they have done. So we shouldn’t be shy about that at all, and we shouldn’t be shy about defending our Prophet Muhammad.”

Nor should Muslims feel uncomfortable with these stories, but should be proud of them because they have Quranic and ‘true’ historical origins. He quoted that Quranic verses in Arabic, saying “Other than those upon whom is wrath. They are the Jews. And those who go astray are the Christians.”

Walid’s record shows that his sense of justice has often been erratic and extreme. He championed the cause of a Detroit imam who died in a hail of bullets in 2009 after opening fire first on FBI agents who came to arrest him on a criminal complaint. He ignored the imam’s history of advising followers never to surrender peacefully and the series of investigations found the agents acted appropriately. He also compared the use of informants in counter-terrorism sting operations to Jim Crow segregation laws and claimed the FBI has recruited more extremists than al-Qaida.

Walid’s account fits into a mentality that everything Islamic is good and “there’s never any reason to apologize for anything,” Pipes said. And that ignores Islamic imperialism, in which the faith is expanded primarily through the sword. That is exemplified by Muslim attacks on churches in Nigeria, Iran’s obsession with obtaining a nuclear weapon and the 9/11 attacks.

“To Islamists these attacks are not imperialism,” Pipes said, “They bring a higher civilization to the infidels and we should be thankful for this. Such attitudes are not acceptable by today’s standards; making changes to this supremacist mentality is part of the work that Muslims need to do to modernize their religion.”

    They scream "Islamaphobia" and the world bows down to them and their wishes, rushing to apologize. But if you examine the numbers, there are far more hate crimes against Jews than against Muslims, despite the huge disparity in size of population. Yet if we talk about anti-Semitism, we're accused of trying to "silence our critics".

    Do I detect just a hint of double standards?

  • StephenD

    "And [it is] because the strongest Israeli lobby in the world is in America, because America is the sole patron of Israel,” Walid said.

    Yeah, so don’t forget it! Tell the other sand monkeys we will stand with Israel because they are the only Civilized People in the entire Mid-East.

    You want the world to think you offer a better way of life and yet you would place women in cloth coffins, hang your homosexual sons and behead your brother who has chosen to leave the “Religion of Peace.” You expect people to ignore this because you get government assistance to spew this rhetoric and are a smooth talker. But most of the balance of the world aren’t like those living in isolation where this cult first appeared. Most can think for themselves and see the evidence of this totalitarian system that would enslave them…and we ain’t buying it.

  • RiverFred

    Other than the suicide belt for the sake of Allah what have Muslims contributed to society, NADA.
    Obvioulsy Muslims are jealous of the success by Jews.

  • RiverFredIsAnIdiot

    RiverFred, you are by far the dumbest person I have run across. Did you go to school? Muslims made significant strides in mathematics, astronomy, physics, and other countless subjects you likely did not study.

    • Northanhymbre Heathen

      I was under the impression that pre-Islamic Arabs were avid stargazers etc anyway – my suspicion is that Islam simply stifled free philosophical debate and destroyed all the knowledge that had been gathered by its religious predecessors in the Arabic world (or stole their knowledge and touted it as their own after they'd enslaved or beheaded them!) I'm neither Jewish nor Christian but I do recall a passage in the Bible somewhere that says "you will know them by what they do", and the Islamic world just doesn't really strike me as a hotbed of intellectual enquiry and scientific development when one observes "what they do". The Jews Dawid Walid hates so much have far, far surpassed Muslims in the sciences and many other subjects.

      • wctaqiyya

        Good points. Arab knowledge of astronomy was used primarily for time keeping. They borrowed most of that knowledge from the Greeks and others or claimed the credit of work done by non-Muslims under their control. Oh, they were also big on astrology. You know, magic, flying carpets, genies and fortune telling. Most of the popular claims about Arab scientific advances are exaggerated.

    • Mina

      Like Muhammad/allah telling us the Earth is flat and the Sun sets in a muddy pool? Muslims brought nothing to anyone but misery. They invaded the most advanced civilisations on Earth, and then stole their work and called it Islamic.

    • Galveston

      and don't forget their prize invention – the suicide vest!

    • ziontruth

      "Muslims made significant strides in mathematics, astronomy, physics,…"

      Converts to Islam made those significant strides. Just a few generations afterward, as we can see to this day, that pool of genius dried up in a hot wind blast of Islamic anti-innovationism and cousin marriage.

      What it does tell you that Hindu contributors to science can be found just as much in modern times as in ancient ones, while the "Muslim" contributors to science are a past-tense affair only?

    • Myron

      That was around 1000 yrs ago dude. I think RiverFred was asking more “what have you done lately” – with lately of course meaning sometime in the last millenium.

    • Flanstein

      Riverdred,

      Islam has contributed to humanity nothing but hatred, evil and oppression for the last thousand years.

  • Marty

    walid is a liar and fraud busy implementing tawiyya and doing even that badly. The koran is the founding document of a genocidal death cult that insists on destroying any civilization that is unfortunate to come into contact with it. When mohamad first appeared in mecca, the place was a relatively tolerant and industrious region. He and his delusional followers wrecked the place and turned most of arabia into a cemetary for non-muslims. muslims have been set on conquering the world ever since in order to eliminate any culture that preceded or is competitive with theirs. That means everything unislamic must be subdued and leveled. muslims will plunge the world into a new and prolonged dark age if they are allowed to continue to immigrate to the West and live off the state dole while they breed dysfunctional families with their cousins and wallow in self-pity. Work is beneath them; that is why dhimmis are around.

  • Hoekom Jy My Haat

    Is it "Islamophobia" when they REALLY ARE trying to kill you?

    • stern

      Spoken like a ware Suid Afrikaner.

      • ziontruth

        Marxist political AIDS in its bare form: "RAAACIST!" = "Lay down all your defenses and let the barbarian hordes take you and yours without firing a shot."

        In a sane world, being a Marxist would be grounds for a charge of high treason.

      • ziontruth

        On second thought… Is this the same "stern" that posts on the good side, and the expression "a ware Suid Afrikaner" is not intended to smear Hoekom as being equal to the Afrikaners of pre-1994 South Africa? If so, then I apologize.

        • stern

          Hey relax. I was making an "in" joke about the moniker! Did not intend anything more than that, and was certainly not disagreeing with the post.

          • Stern

            On second thought. I apologize too. My original reply was not well thought out. Sorry

          • ziontruth

            No problem! I often suffer from KJS* when posting here.

    ~ Israel first became a nation in 1312 B.C, two thousand years before the rise of Islam!

    "The land of Israel belongs to God, and He has decided to give it to the Jewish nation,
    in accordance with the covenant sealed on Mount Sinai, a covenant that no other nation
    was willing to undertake. After a long exile, we've returned home. We bear no malice toward anyone
    and seek no harm to anyone. But we will not surrender any portion of our land to foreign powers,
    and if foreigners rise up against us to destroy us, we will fight against them and,
    with God's help, we will destroy them."
    ~ Martin Wasserman

    Oh, and Issslam's profaart (whose name is cause for deleted & cen$ored posts) – Is STILL DEAD!

  • Indioviejo

    Muslim bigotry and racism is deflected by their cry of Islamophobia. They have played the victimhood card for the longest time until they take over, then they will kick our collective butts into the dirt. This is the point Walid is trying to cover up. But Muslim hatred for Jews and Christians cannot be covered up for long, it just bursts out of them.

  • Ralph Vaughan

    If CAIR really wants to change civilized society's perception of Muslims, perhaps they should tell Muslims to stop killing people.

    From the slavery of Egypt the Children of Israel were made free and Independent, and thus each man became as it were a King, if only he had obeyed Allah and followed the lead of Moses. This is the teaching of the Qur-an S.5A. 19-23.
    Remember Moses said To his people (Israelites) : "Oh my People! Call in remembrance the favour of Allah (GOD) unto you, when He Produced prophets among you, Made you Kings, and gave You what He had not given To any other among the peoples.
    Oh my people! enter The Holy Land which Allah (GOD) hath assigned unto you, and turn not back Ignominiously, for then Will ye be overthrown, To your Ruin."

    This is the Demise of all Middle eastern non Christian faiths this is where they all get off on why cant we have the blessings???? and hence Mohammad recognizes Christ as a prophet but not the Anointed one this was Mohammed down fall he died thinking he was a greater man the Christ! so all the Islamic and Palestine faiths fell and were crushed buy the rising of the Jewish, Roman Catholic and Christian faiths….
