The Leftist Enablers of Hezbollah and Hamas

Joseph Klein is a Harvard-trained lawyer and the author of Global Deception: The UN’s Stealth Assault on America’s Freedom and Lethal Engagement: Barack Hussein Obama, the United Nations & Radical Islam.


Judith“Understanding Hamas/Hezbollah as social movements that are progressive, that are on the left, that are part of a global left, is extremely important,“ proclaimed leftist Columbia University visiting professor Judith Butler, who is also an executive member of the Faculty for Israeli-Palestinian Peace in the United States and The Jenin Theatre in Palestine. Then, in a disclaimer so typical of the leftist apologists for terrorist organizations cloaked as “resistance fighters,” Professor Butler assured us that she does not favor violence.

Hezbollah and Hamas, like all terrorist organizations, are defined by the violence they regularly commit against innocent civilians.  Both have called for the destruction of Israel by any means necessary. Not only do they aim rockets and arm suicide bombers to deliberately target women and children. They use their own women and children as human shields and human bombs. Indeed, they glorify the “martyrdom” of young girls.

For example, here is an excerpt from an Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas) phone interview broadcast on January 22, 2010 on Hamas TV kids’ program, Tomorrow’s Pioneers:

Host to girl on phone: “How was it for you during the [Gaza] war [2009]? Were you afraid that you would die, that you would leave this world?”

Girl: “No. I wasn’t afraid. I wished for Shahada (Martyrdom) — Shahada for Allah.”

Host: “How wonderful. Even this little girl – how old are you?”

Girl: “Ten.”

Host: “[She] is not more than ten years old, and wants to die as a Shahida (Martyr) for Allah. We all wish for this [Shahada].”

Is this really what self-declared feminists such as Judith Butler wish for little Palestinian girls? To die violently as a “martyr” reciting a memorized script?  No, she would likely say, but she would nevertheless insist that Hamas and Hezbollah are still worth supporting for their non-violent “political” and “charitable” activities.

In reality, their “political” and “charitable” arms feed their militant operations, much as tumor blood vessels bring the nutrients to cancer cells that those cells need to grow. They are all part of one indivisible whole. But leftists like Butler pretend that such “anti-imperialist” groups, as they call them, can compartmentalize their “progressive” deeds from their armed activities.

Hezbollah Secretary General Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah demonstrated what his organization is really all about when he proclaimed on the last day of the twentieth century that “we will write our history with blood.” He was aiming his remarks against Israelis, whom he promised “will see more suicide attacks.” But his hatred is not reserved just for Israel.

During a February, 2006 speech he led a crowd in chants, “America, America you are the Great Satan … America, America, the enemy of the Muslims.” At the time, he was hosting radical professor Noam Chomsky, a great admirer of Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations and reviler of his home country, the United States. And, going further than Butler, Chomsky said that he had no problem supporting Hezbollah’s use of arms.  After all, he rationalized, they were fighting “imperialistic forces.”  Lebanese observers who heard Chomsky’s unequivocal support for Hezbollah were not impressed. One such observer, quoted in the Lebanese weblog Ya Libnan, said: “Chomsky needs to live here for a while to understand what happened during the past 30 years and why most Lebanese are against the Hezbollah arms.”

Chomsky and his comrades on the Left couldn’t care less what happens to real people as a result of the actions of terrorist groups like Hezbollah. Any group that hates the “Great Satan” has got to be alright for the Chomskyites, who meanwhile seek comfort and security in the land they so glibly condemn.

Such willful moral inversion is not confined to academia, of course. For example, former U.S. ambassador to Iraq and Gaza flotilla spokesman Edward Peck said after meeting with a group of Hamas leaders, including Hamas’s leader, Khaled Mashaal: “These guys were entirely rational.” Peck added that he found Mashaal to be “moderate in many senses.”

Mashaal projects a moderate image to Westerners when it serves Hamas’s interests, much as its parent the Muslim Brotherhood does. But it is all taqiyya – a bunch of lies – meant to deceive the gullible like Peck.

For example, in interviews with Western journalists, Mashaal said that Hamas would be open to a long-term hudna (truce) with Israel so long as Israel ended its occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, and agreed to the right of return of millions of Palestinians living in refugee camps or exile.

“We are ready to resort to a peaceful way, purely peaceful way without blood and weapons, as long as we obtain our Palestinian demands,” Mashaal told CNN in an interview last November. In other words, if Israel concedes away its Jewish identity and capitulates to all of the Palestinian jihadists’ demands, there need not be any bloodshed. But only a month later, emerging from a door built into a large-scale model of a rocket fired at Israel, Mashaal whipped up the masses in Gaza celebrating Hamas’s 25th anniversary:  “We are not giving up any inch of Palestine. It will remain Islamic and Arab for us and nobody else. Jihad and armed resistance is the only way. We cannot recognize Israel’s legitimacy.”

“Resistance” is the code word used by groups like Hezbollah and Hamas and their supporters, meant to justify their violence and distinguish it from terrorism. Richard Falk, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Palestinian human rights and avid apologist for jihadist violence, illustrated this perverse logic when he wrote in Al Jazeera last December:

“It gives perspective to imagine the situation being reversed as it was during the Nazi occupation of France or the Netherlands during World War II. Resistance fighters were uniformly perceived in the liberal West as unconditional heroes, and no critical attention was given as to whether the tactics used unduly imperiled innocent civilian lives. Those who lost their lives in such a resistance were honoured as martyrs. Meshaal and other Hamas leaders have made similar arguments on several occasions, in effect asking what are Palestinians supposed to do in the exercise of resistance given their circumstances, which have persisted for so long, given the failures of traditional diplomacy and the UN to secure their rights under international law.”

Here is an idea for what Palestinians could be doing. How about negotiating in good faith for a two-state solution that recognizes Israel’s legitimacy as a Jewish state living in peace and security alongside an independent Palestinian state? For more than six decades Palestinians leaders have refused multiple opportunities for just such an outcome. Instead, as Hamas’s leader continues to demonstrate, they hide behind the nice-sounding but false narrative of victimhood and “resistance” to “neo-colonialists” in order to justify their all-or-nothing campaign of jihadism to the death. Perhaps the current Israeli-Palestinian negotiations now underway will lead to a more positive outcome, but don’t bet on it.

The United Nations, for which Falk is a Special Rapporteur, enables such behavior by failing to come to agreement on a definition of “terrorism,” let alone apply the term to Hamas and Hezbollah where it belongs. These jihadist groups and their supporters use the United Nations as the stage where they act out their fictions of Zionist and Western crimes against them.  Zionist Israel and its “Great Satan” protector, the United States, are cast as arch villains conspiring to control the world. Any human rights violations alleged to have been committed by Hamas or Hezbollah are either denied altogether or shrugged off in comparison to the supposed inhumanity of Israel and Western democratic societies. Suicide bombers are morphed into heroic resistance fighters.

These groups count on Western guilt and ambivalence to advance their cause. The European Union provides a perfect example of a Western organization that took far too long to arrive at what ended up being only a half-way measure in dealing with Hezbollah’s record of global terrorism.

On July 22, 2013, the Foreign Affairs Council of the European Union finally, after years of malignant neglect, agreed to add Hezbollah’s military wing to its list of terrorist organizations. This should have been a no-brainer, but it was made possible only after confirmation by Bulgarian government officials that Hezbollah had been responsible for conducting a terrorist attack there in July 2012 and after a Hezbollah operative was caught in Cyprus while preparing for a similar attack in February 2013. Hezbollah’s military support for the Assad regime in Syria also helped push the reluctant EU to do what it should have done years ago. And even so, it still tries to thread the needle between Hezbollah’s military wing and its political wing, instead of flatly declaring the entire organization a terrorist entity as the United States did in 1995. In fact, as discussed above, Hezbollah’s military and political operations are intertwined, making any distinction between them completely artificial.  Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah mocked the EU decision, “Soak your terrorist list in water and drink it…I will propose the appointment of members of the party’s military wing in the prospective government.”

Downplaying the danger of groups like Hezbollah and Hamas is a recipe for disaster. Stop the deception and call them out for what they truly are – jihadists who use terrorism as their tactic of choice to realize their malignant intentions. Israel is merely the canary in the coal mine. The ultimate target is all infidels, especially those with Western secular democratic values.

    It should be clear that the focus of Chomsky is a denunciation of terrorism, in whatever form it occurs. His focus on the US is a function of performing his responsibilities to his own country, who he consistently portrays as having many freedoms most other countries have not. And the truly amazing thing about his efforts are they are performed as a private citizen, not as the great philosopher and scientist he is. He appeals simply to common sense and not to technical aspects of science, which he could easily do, given his work in language and what that implies about the cognitive abilities needed for democracy to function.
    And proofs of his critiques are coming to fruition. We can no longer support dictatorships instead of the forces of democracy in other countries. Cut through the psycho-babble of social scientists, and see that common sense shows we can not continue to support anti-democratic forces in other countries.

      It should be clear that the focus of Chomsky is a denunciation of terrorism, in whatever form it occurs.

      No its not. Chomsky’s main focus has always been totally self-hating and always 100 percent delusional as he blames American capitalism and harsh Israeli policies for self-generating terrorist attacks upon them selves. Thus, let me rain on his unhinged and extremely paranoid delusional parade, because Muslims are not terrorists perpetrating terrorism in response to American capitalist imperialism or with respect to Israel, because of harsh Israeli policies, as Muslims are instead mujahideen (holy fighters) waging jihad (holy war) in the cause of Allah for the establishment and expansion of Islam.

      Indeed, the sole fundamental purpose of Islam is the subjugation into Islamic totalitarianism of all religions and all infidels through both violent and non-violent jihad (holy war) and the eventual imposition of Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law. As a matter of fact, jihad (holy war) is not only the highest pillar of which Islam stands; waging it is also a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims in one form or another. Thus, all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another. Otherwise, they are blasphemous apostates that per the texts and tenets of Islam must be executed. Hence, Chomsky is a useful idiot lunatic of gigantic proportions.

      He appeals simply to common sense and not to technical aspects of science, which he could easily do, given his work in language and what that implies about the cognitive abilities needed for democracy to function.

      Common sense dictates and does not deny that Marxism in all of its many varied forms just like clockwork in time always inevitably fails every time it is tried, and there have been no exceptions to this hard and fast rule.

      And proofs of his critiques are coming to fruition.

      Very apparently this moonbat is more than just a little delusional. Indeed, it was capitalism that made America the greatest nation the world has ever seen and today it is unmitigated Marxism that is tearing it down and destroying it!

      We can no longer support dictatorships instead of the forces of democracy in other countries.

      Buddy…if you believe that democracy is possible in the Islamic world, then it’s obvious you don’t have the first clue what Islam is. Indeed, you are 100 percent oblivious!

      Cut through the psycho-babble of social scientists, and see that common sense shows we can not continue to support anti-democratic forces in other countries.

      Common sense? Yeah right, seek mental help for your very severe problems with delusions, because you obviously can’t discern the difference between what is delusion and what is reality.

      Timothy, You are bending backwards to defend a man who, whatever his virtues, is a defender of the killing of civilians, who grossly misunderstands most of the organizations he loves, by not reading their political and their religious motives and long-term aims correctly, an anti-Semite, and much else. Too many left-wing intellectuals have a sad inability to catch the drift of what is happening. In the same way, large numbers supported Stalin while Stalin was busy killing Russian civilians in millions. They defended the Vietnamese communists who went on a large-scale killing spree. They now defend groups like al-Qa’ida, Hamas and Hizbollah, whose aim is the slaughter of non-Muslims in large numbers in order to create totalitarian Islamic rule wherever possible. None of these groups pay respect to other left-wing ideals such as respect for human life. People like Chomsky focus on equally discredited philosophies like post-colonialism and anti-imperialism and thus support any movements that claims to be behind such thinking. But it’s all illusory. Working for peace, justice, dialogue, a better economic system are all important ideals, but they can never be achieved from the barrel of a gun.

    The depth of the evil of Hamas and Hezbollah is too much. The lies….it’s all right from the pit of hell. Prof. Judith Butler? Is she a professor? Does she have a disinterested but passionate search for truth? Is she striving for the advancement of civilization? Or does she, as Dr. Glazov writes with such prescience, have a deep-seated death wish, a longing for self-annihilation so intense that she will even embrace the deeply misogynistic Islamic terrorists and the people-hating far left?
    Thanks for this article. Another homerun on frontpagemag.com

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Then, in a disclaimer so typical of the leftist apologists for terrorist organizations cloaked as “resistance fighters,” Professor Butler assured us that she does not favor violence.

    I hate to rain on Mr. Klein’s parade, but Hamas and Hezbollah aren’t terrorist organizations perpetrating terrorism in response to harsh Israeli policies. Indeed, why accept the unhinged premise of the delusional left, while also at the same time trying to expose their hypocrisy and incompetence. That’s ludicrous!

    Nevertheless, Muslims are jihadists, i.e., Mujahideen (holy warriors), as jihad, which is holy war in the cause of Allah for the establishment and expansion of Islam, is not terrorism perpetrated by political extremists, it’s jihad (holy war) instead. Indeed, the sole fundamental purpose of Islam is the subjugation into Islamic totalitarianism of all religions and all infidels through both violent and non-violent jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law. Thus, peace between the so-called Palestinians, which are Muslims and the infidel state of Israel, is absolutely impossible unless one side obliterates the other.

    It’s time to understand the difference between war and terrorism, as war and terrorism are two very separate and distinct manifestations altogether and Muslims are not terrorists! Instead, they are Mujahideen (holy warriors) or if you like, jihadists, fighting jihad (holy war) for the establishment and expansion of Islam in the cause of Allah.

    Indeed, the jihad (holy war) being waged by the so-called Palestinians at the behest of the greater Islamic world is nothing but one tiny theater in the much larger global jihad being waged against all religions and all infidels throughout the world. Hence, please stop misrepresenting the true nature of the jihad being waged against the infidel state of Israel, as you are just re-enforcing the false narrative of Islam that is already all too prevalent throughout the public discourse today.

    Not only do they aim rockets and arm suicide bombers to deliberately target women and children. They use their own women and children as human shields and human bombs. Indeed, they glorify the “martyrdom” of young girls.

    Why act surprised? That has always been the norm throughout Islamic culture and society, as jihad (holy war) is not only the highest pillar of which Islam stands, but also waging it is a holy fundamental duty incumbent upon all Muslims, including women and children, in one form or another. Thus, all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another. Otherwise, they are blasphemous apostates that according to the texts and tenets of Islam must be executed.

    Thus, in regards to the Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas) phone interview broadcast on January 22, 2010 on Hamas TV kids’ program, Tomorrow’s Pioneers, I would have been very surprised had the young girl not wished for Shahada (Martyrdom). Indeed, there’s nothing unusual here to see! Indeed, Muslim women and children always volunteer to be human shields to seek Shahada.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Is this really what self-declared feminists such as Judith Butler wish for little Palestinian girls? To die violently as a “martyr” reciting a memorized script? No, she would likely say, but she would nevertheless insist that Hamas and Hezbollah are still worth supporting for their non-violent “political” and “charitable” activities.

    Uhm if the prevailing narrative correctly identified Muslims as being jihadists waging jihad (holy war) in the cause of Allah as opposed to being terrorists, it would be automatically understood that all non-violent “political” and “charitable” activities are just jihad by other means.

    As a matter of fact, this is one of the unnecessary major hoops we must all jump through today because what is really jihad (holy war) is always somehow mischaracterized, misconstrued, and conflated as being terrorism by clueless useful idiots. And because terrorism, in stark contrast to jihad (holy war), is always and only violent, while jihad (holy war), on the other hand, manifests both violently and non-violently, but overall astronomically far more non-violently relative to violently, the many varieties of stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad, such as mass Muslim immigration to the infidel world, which is really stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad for the very strategic purpose of demographic conquest, manifests today throughout the infidel world totally without opposition, even though it is exponentially far more detrimental to our national security relative to violent varieties of jihad.

    Indeed, the harsh reality is non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad is also astronomically far more harmful to Israel’s national security and indeed the respective national security of the entire infidel world at large relative to violent jihad. However, it is nonetheless allowed to manifests today without opposition because jihad (holy war) is conflated and morally equated as being terrorism, which is always and only violent, opening the door at the same time to the manifestation of the far more ubiquitous forms of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad to not only manifest, but also to manifest totally uncontested.

    As a matter of fact, the many machinations that take place in the UN in denunciation of Israel is also a form of stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad that operates practically without opposition and with impunity because what is jihad (holy war) is misconstrued, conflated, and morally equated as somehow being terrorism instead.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Mashaal projects a moderate image to Westerners when it serves Hamas’s interests, much as its parent the Muslim Brotherhood does.

    Because of the very totalitarian nature of Islam, a Muslim is either a Muslim or otherwise a blasphemous apostate, and if the latter, then the texts and tenets of Islam are quite clear, blasphemous apostate ex-Muslim infidels must be executed. Hence, it is impossible for a Muslim to be a Muslim and a so-called moderate Muslim at the same time. Since a moderate Muslim would also be a blasphemous apostate ex-Muslim infidel that must be executed. Gee…what’s so hard to understand about that.

    “Resistance” is the code word used by groups like Hezbollah and Hamas and their supporters, meant to justify their violence and distinguish it from terrorism.

    “Resistance” is the code word for “jihad” (holy war). Indeed, if it were automatically understood that Muslims were waging jihad in the cause of Allah as opposed to being terrorists perpetrating terrorism in response to harsh Israeli policies, there would be no such “distinguishing” taking place.

    Meshaal and other Hamas leaders have made similar arguments on several occasions, in effect asking what are Palestinians supposed to do in the exercise of resistance given their circumstances,

    Richard Falk is an unhinged self-hating loon. Again, Muslims aren’t resisting anything. They are waging preemptive jihad (holy war), which is a very aggressive war being waged against all religions and all infidels. Indeed, one more time, the sole fundamental purpose of Islam is the subjugation into Islamic totalitarianism of all religions and all infidels through both violent and non-violent jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia. Why? Because Islam alone makes the very dubious claim that its holy book, the Koran, contains the direct verbatim testimony of Allah (God) as dictated to Muhammad by the archangel Gabriel. Thus, Islam must be made supreme throughout the world.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Here is an idea for what Palestinians could be doing. How about negotiating in good faith for a two-state solution that recognizes Israel’s legitimacy as a Jewish state living in peace and security alongside an independent Palestinian state?

    Wishing is one thing and reality is another thing. So-called Palestinian Muslims will never end their jihad against the infidel state of Israel for as long Israel continues to survive. Indeed, in this case there is only one-way to secure peace: total destruction of your enemy.

    The United Nations, for which Falk is a Special Rapporteur, enables such behavior by failing to come to agreement on a definition of “terrorism,

    I hope it never does, because Muslims are jihadists waging jihad in the cause of Allah as opposed to being terrorists! Someone here needs to go buy a clue and it isn’t me.

    Their supporters use the United Nations as the stage where they act out their fictions of Zionist and Western crimes against them. Zionist Israel and its “Great Satan” protector, the United States, are cast as arch villains conspiring to control the world.

    Again, if jihad wasn’t conflated and morally equated as somehow being terrorism, then the above would be understood and upheld for what it really is, which is stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad (holy war). Nevertheless, because it isn’t violent, then it isn’t construed as being terrorism and is therefore allowed to manifest totally with full impunity and without opposition.

    Any human rights violations alleged to have been committed by Hamas or Hezbollah are either denied altogether or shrugged off in comparison to the supposed inhumanity of Israel and Western democratic societies. Suicide bombers are morphed into heroic resistance fighters.

    Again, this is a function of the current false narrative that portrays Muslims as being terrorists reacting to infidels. However, the current narrative is very false, as Muslims are not reactionary terrorists, but instead very aggressive jihadists, waging jihad in the cause of Allah for the establishment and expansion of Islam. It’s a preemptive aggressive war.

    On July 22, 2013, the Foreign Affairs Council of the European Union finally, after years of malignant neglect, agreed to add Hezbollah’s military wing to its list of terrorist organizations.

    Which is ludicrous since Hezbollah isn’t a terrorist organization, but instead a jihadists organization dedicated to the total, complete, and utter destruction of the infidel state of Israel. After that, the total, complete, and utter destruction of the entire infidel world.

    This should have been a no-brainer,

    between it still tries to thread the needle between Hezbollah’s military wing and its political wing, military wing and its political wing

    Again, jihad is holy war by any and all means violent and non-violent. The above wouldn’t be able to happen if jihad (holy war) wasn’t conflated and morally equated as somehow being terrorism.

    Downplaying the danger of groups like Hezbollah and Hamas is a recipe for disaster.

    What about Fatah, they don’t count? Oh okay, obviously they are considered by Mr. Klein to be imaginary moderates. Wink, wink! Yeah right! Some people can’t help it, they like being gullible useful idiots.

    Ms. butler is a lying scum bag like the majority of her government worshipping coreligionists of the left.
    Denying favoring violence while carrying water for those who delight and celebrate mass murder….sure she’s “against” violence. And my name is Alice.
    She only lies when her lips are moving.

      This Bolshevik witch Butler is “against violence” as soon as her communist “progressive” shock troops and their Islamoterrorist comrades have finished massacring of any and all opposition.

        Who were the real Bolseviks? 7 out of the 10 who murdered the czar’s family were Jews, right?

      Read your lips too. You are the real racist.

    This aversion to ‘calling them out for what they really are’ is not unique to the Hamas/Hezbollah scenario – I just had an anguished protest from somebody who says he’s a Muslim in Europe who ‘works with racism and religious discrimination’ (one assumes he means against, not with!) because I referred to the ‘IslamoNazi cancer’ here that persecutes religious minorities http://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2013/10/11/islamonazi-cancer-spreads-across-java-ahmadis-intimidated-again/

    and he thinks I’m thus being “insensitive to 1.7 billion Muslims!”
    By some peculiar leap of logic, he also suggests my use of the term ‘insults’ the six million Jews who died in the Holocaust.

    Go figure!

    “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools”. I love the foreknowledge and wisdom of our wonderful Judeo-Christian Faith. The arrogance of totalitarians is always bad for regular citizens.

    You mistake the Butlers of the world for embracing genocide in spite of its antisemitism. They embrace genocide BECAUSE of its antisemitism.

    I just got a telephone call from my good friend Abdul in Syria. He told me that he had both good news and bad news to share with me.

    I asked Abdul: “What’s the good news?”

    Abdul said: “My son Kamal became a jihadi today. He was the one who blew himself up in the car bomb attack in Darkoush.”

    I responded: “Wow. So, what’s the bad news?”

    Abdul replied: “He used my car!”

    ROTFLMAO!!! I AM A F UCKING RIOT!!!! (And I’m here all week!)

    The Greek philosopher Plato is one of the contributors to Western Civilization. He may shed some light into the subject of those people who are shackled in the chains and darkness of Islamic thought. In Plato’s REPUBLIC he gave an allegory of a cave where “the condition of men living in a sort of cavernous chamber…Here they have been from childhood, chained by leg and also by the neck, so that they cannot move and see only what is in front of them.” This can fit into what the Imams do in the mosques and how they brainwash the young people in the madrassa’s by always programming Islamic doctrine into their victims and not exposing them to other worldviews. Furthermore, even in Islamic tradition when Muslims have their newborn child the father whispers words of the Quran into the infants ear so that that Quran verses are the first thing the newborn person hears. This programming process takes place all their lives. These are some of the chains that keep them bound in a mosque [cave]. The chains do not let them reach out for dialectic reasoning and let them examine the evidence both for as well as against, or even question whether Muhammad was a true prophet of God or not, and if the Quran is a hoax or not. As the chains and darkness of the cave blinds and holds the prisoners back from reality, so Islamic propaganda holds back the cognition to reason with the question if Islam is true or not. They are forbidden from even thinking to question Islam. Furthermore, if a Muslim by some miracle wakes up to the truth about Islam, it would be like the man in Plato’s cave allegory who was released from his chains and taken outside to the real world. At first direct light would be painful and disorienting, it would take some time for him to understand what the truth is all about, he even might cling to the shadows and still for a time believe some of the illusions to be real. But he would finally come to know “what he had formerly seen was meaningless illusion.” And that was “what passed for wisdom in his former dewelling-place.”And that the other cave prisoners also needed to see the light [the truth] for he “was sorry for them.” and he would re-enter the cave just to rescue them. Nevertheless, the cave prisoners wouldn’t understand and “if they could lay hand on the man who was trying to set them free.” And if they could “they would kill him.” Likewise, when someone escapes from the shackles of Islam, those still in the darkness of this religion would not understand and if possible kill him for leaving Islam, and even more so if he were to try to enlighten them about the truth about Islam. For these people in Islam are chained to an empty imitation of truth and godliness

    An important question: is the Quran the Word of God or is it a fabrication of a man. Thus, is the Quran the truth or a fiction and a hoax? The members of Hamas and Hezbollah use many verses from the Quran as the Main source of justification for their violence, mayhem and murders. There, the question is clearly given on pages 145 through 157 in THE ISLAMIC INVASION by Robert Morey in which he wrote a section on the Quran with its self-contradictions. Just two of the many he cited are the following “The Quran differs on whether a day is a thousand years or fifty thousand years in God’s sight’ and “Who was first to believe? Abraham or Moses [Sura 6:14 versus 7:143]? The above is inconsistent and illogical. Further, Morey wrote about “The fact that Judaism and Christianity broke up into different sects was used in the Quran to prove that they are not of God [Suras 30:20-32. 42:13, 14]. Yet Islam has broken up into many warring sects and therefore cannot be true if the Quran is right.” Moreover, Morey in his book shows many more contradictions and absurdities in the Quran, there are and how Muhammad incorporated extra Biblical and Jewish folklore along with pre-Islamic Arabian myth and parts of Zoroastrian and Hindu stories into the Quran. Furthermore, the Muslims claim that “the Quran is the direct, literal word of God unmodified in any way by the Prophet who uttered them at the bidding of God.” Nevertheless, in the book UNVEILING ISLAM by Ergun Mehmet and Eethi Caner has shown that the Quran was modified in the following account on pages 45. “Muhammad felt the need to improve on the words of Allah, since he changed Allah’s wisdom for his own on several occasions. A hadith tells of the nonchalant emendations of Muhammad:’ On a number of occasions he [a scribe] had, with the Prophet’s consent changed the closing words of verses. For example, when the prophet had said ‘God is mighty and wise ‘ Adbollah b. Abi Sarh suggested writing down ‘Knowing and wise’ and the Prophet answered that there was no objection. Having observed a succession of changes of this type, Adbollah renounced Islam on the grounds that revelations, if from God could not be changed at the prompting of a scribe such as himself. After his apostasy he went to Mecca and joined the Qorayshites.’ Other writers reveal that later Muhammad and his people did go war with the Qorayshites and he personally killed Abdollah. Obviously Abdollah knew too much and Muhammad wanted Abdollah’s knowledge to die with him.” In conclusion, the Quran is not only a fiction, it’s also a hoax.
