Kerry Praises “Multi-Faith Model” of Muslim Country that Banned Bibles

Protesters hold banners during a march towards the foreign ministry in Cairo

It’s good to know that Secretary of State John Kerry’s ideal multi-faith model is a country that seized 20,000 Christian bibles, banned Ahmadis from praying and destroys a Hindu temple every 3 weeks.

Let’s hope his boss doesn’t intend to introduce this multi-faith model in the United States.

Kerry said, “We meet in Kuala Lumpur because this is a multi-cultural city at the heart of a multi-ethnic, multi-faith country, and history has proven time and again that diversity is one of the most important catalysts for discovery.

“Here in Malaysia, people of different heritages have been in conversation for a long, long time. You see it in the open houses that you host during holidays, welcoming people of different faiths into your living rooms.”

How has that conversation been going? Let’s look at some highlights.

Authorities in Malaysia have seized more than 20,000 Bibles in recent months because they refer to God as “Allah,” Christian leaders said Thursday.

The seizures have fed fears among minority groups, which see signs of encroaching Islamic fundamentalism in the predominantly Muslim but multi-racial country.

And some more highlights of multi-cultural and multi-faith and multi-ethnic Malaysia.

“Our calculation shows one temple being demolished in every three weeks,” P. Uthayakumar, a lawyer for the Hindu Rights Action Task Force, a Malaysian rights group, told Reuters.

“The UMNO government is not following the Constitution, which guarantees the freedom of religion.”

Ethnic Indians say a decades-old affirmative action plan put in place after deadly race riots in 1969 continues to discriminate against them.

The policy favours politically dominant Malays in state contracts, businesses, jobs, education and housing.

But wait, there’s more multi-faith goodness.

Over 90 per cent deaths in police custody are of Hindus. Every week, 1.3 persons on average are shot by the police; 95 per cent are Hindus. A staggering 70 per cent of Indian Malaysians have been reduced to hardcore poor, poor or working class, with 90 per cent being in the daily or monthly wage-earning category.

One of the worst problems is forced conversions to Islam, which has become particularly acute since 2001, despite the provision for freedom of religion entrenched in Article 11 in the Malaysian Constitution. A recent case that has shaken the country involves a 27-year-old Tamil Hindu, Bangaramma, who was converted as a minor in a Government orphanage and registered as a Muslim without her knowledge. She continued to regard herself as a Hindu, worshipping and marrying a Hindu in a temple, according to Vedic rites.

Bangaramma is now fighting for her religious freedom in order to live as a Hindu with her Hindu husband and two children, as the Government is refusing to register her marriage and to acknowledge her husband as father of her children. Worse, she is being threatened with the charge of apostasy, which in Islamic Malaysia means she can be forcibly separated from her husband and children (aged two and seven).

But wait, there’s more national living room conversations in Malaysia about religion. Even if you’re a Muslim from a non-recognized sect.

The Selangor Council of Islamic Religion in Malaysia has issued a notice ordering the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Malaysia (AMC Malaysia) to immediately stop offering Friday Prayer services at the national AMC headquarters, the Bait-us-Salam Mosque.

In its order, the MAIS has stated that failure by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community to comply with the terms of the order will result in imprisonment of up to one year and/or a fine up to RM3000 (~$850 USD).

Is this what Kerry really considers a model of multiculturalism? But wait… there’s an explanation.

Kerry’s speech was originally to have been delivered by Obama, who launched the annual business gathering in Washington.

    Malaysia without its Chinese and Hindu population would be another failed state not unlike Pakistan and Bangladesh. The Malay population would be in dire economic trouble without these groups. And it would be a case of where is Allah when you need him? Hint: There ain’t no Allah other wise he would have been helping all those Arab wannabes in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

    Chinese are also discriminated against in Malaysia.

    This is an excellent example of why Kerry is your classic “libTARD!”

      It’s hard to imagine a SoS not knowing the nature of islam0fascism in the 21st century. I’d imagine the SoS has access to reams of intelligence that FPM will never see. He’s obviously disingenuous, or probably worse.

    If you don’t do as the insanely pious Muslims tell you to…..you ain’t Muslim enough,…in fact…you’re Un-Islamic….

      What is most amazing about al-Ahmadiyya sect is that there are number one that are out there to spread Islam when Sunni and Shia Muslims regard them as kuffar and that they deserve to be killed
      But again religion is a big industry in India what can I say

    Bumiptura is an affirmative action program for indigenous Malaysian muslimes that comes at the expense of anyone not a Malaysian muslime. It infests all aspects of business in Malaysia.

    I wonder whatever happened to Raja Petra? He was a member of the Malaysian royal family that had the temerity to criticise aspects of islam (such as Jews not being apes and swine) and was ruthlessly persecuted for doing so.

    Kerry’s presence in the US State Department hasn’t changed it a bit. About 32 years ago, I was on a flight to Saudi Arabia, and one of the magazines on the plane was Newsweek. I read the issue several times during the eight hours long flight. The flight arrived about 2 AM, local time, and after checking into a hotel, I looked for something to read. The only English language magazine in the lobby was Newsweek. It was the same issue that I had read on the plane, but I took it, just to have something to read. One of the articles in the magazine that I had read on the plane was about Saudi Arabia, and it quoted a US Assistant Secretary of State as saying words to the effect that: “Saudi Arabia is a true friend of the USA. It provides freedom of the press, and freedom of speech.”

    Interestingly, the entire article about Saudi Arabia had been excised from the copy of the magazine in the hotel, literally, cut out. So had many other articles, and, in addition, there were a number of places that had been covered over with black ink. In other words, the magazine had been censored.

    The following week I flew to Damaam, and visited the Aramco compound there. I was impressed by a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and Christmas carols that played over the compound speaker system. I returned to the compound several days later, and the Christmas tree was gone, and no Christmas carols were being played over the compound speaker system. The Saudi religious police had raided the compound, and removed the tree and had the playing of the Christmas carols stopped, because, they,said, they might have contaminated the Muslims who would see or hear them.

    That kind of thing has been going on for many years. And, of course, the Sunni Muslims and the Shia Muslims have been killing each other for centuries, because they consider each other to be infidels, and Islamic doctrine calls for “death to infidels”. That doctrine is the root cause of Islamic terrorism in the world today, and the killing in Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, Mali, Sudan, Nigeria, Egypt and Syria, to name just a few of the affected countries. And, of course, the killing of Christians and Jews, and other “non-believers”.

    I’m 83, and to my knowledge, no Western leader has, in my lifetime, had the courage or the principles to condemn the Islamic doctrine and demand that it be renounced. All I have heard is, “Islam is the religion of love”, and disgusting prattle like Kerry’s pronouncements.

    Has anyone ever heard the term “liberon”, as in “liberal moron”? I think it rolls off the tongue quite well when describing the John Kerrys of the world.

  • Sharps Rifle

    This is just more proof that the O’Hitler regime is pure evil.

    The elite liberal edifice is built on a lie and prospers by lying. The entire Democrat party is in its thrall, and too many Republicans. If we are going to survive, there must be a truth revolution from below.

  • garyfouse

    Did Kerry say anything about Jengiz Khan he was in Malaysia?

  • beterdeadthanred

    I would like to have Kerrys head on a stick too.

    America was founded on a homogenous Christian culture which defined good and evil according to the Bible. This created a strong, prosperous, and moral nation. But ever since the poison of diversity has set in, dividing Americans in various camps, the result has been weakness, division, insurrection, and convulsion within the American Federation. Historically, diversity is simply a short lived political artifice to gain access into forbidden political territory, and once in control, the new arrivals will raise a banner of intolerance. For example, it was claimed that teaching only creationism in public schools to the exclusion of evolution was intolerant. However, today, evolution is taught in public schools and the bible and creationism is locked out – a successful operation of the tool “diversity.” Unless American’s restore the original principles of unity and oneness based on God and justice, a new intolerant unity of godless socialism will continue to emerge touting “diversity.”

    If Jews such as Kerry believe in the marvelous benefits of multiculturalism then why doesn’t Israel promote it in their own land. Good for you, not so good for me.

    • abrasmom

      How does one identify Kerry, as a Jew? What has this story to do with Israel? Please enlighten me.

      • Ronm1945

        According to jewish law, Kerry qualifies as a jew because his paternal grandfather (Kohn) was a jew.

        http://davidduke.com/the-secret-jew-warmonger-john-kerrys-hidden-jewishness/

        Also, jews are heavily involved in immigration in OTHER countries which led to my comment : Good for you, not so good for me (Israel).

        Hope this helps.

          sorry, but you get your “Jewishness” from your mother, NOT your father, grandfather or paternal grandfather!

          • Ronm1945

            Thank you Victoria. My comment should read ‘paternal grandparents’. This from Wiki : It was discovered in 2003 by Felix Gundacker, a genealogist[5] working with The Boston Globe, that Kerry’s paternal grandparents, who had been born Jewish, as “Fritz Kohn” and “Ida Löwe”, in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, changed their names to “Frederick and Ida Kerry” in 1900 and converted from Judaism to Roman Catholicism in 1901[6][7] or 1902.[8] Fritz’ elder brother Otto had earlier, in 1887[7] or 1896,[5] also embraced Catholicism. The “Kerry” name, widely misinterpreted as indicative of Irish heritage, was reputedly selected arbitrarily: “According to family legend, Fritz and another family member opened an atlas at random and dropped a pencil on a map. It fell on County Kerry in Ireland, and thus a name was chosen.”[6][8] Leaving their hometown Mödling, a suburb of Vienna where they had lived since 1896, Fred and Ida, together with their son Eric, emigrated to the United States in 1905, living at first in Chicago and eventually moving to Brookline, Massachusetts, by 1915.[6]
