Prince Charles defends religious freedom and calls for greater tolerance between Muslims and Christians
Prince Charles today passionately defended religious freedom [from Islamic oppression] during an address at the House of Lords.
“It is an indescribable tragedy that Christianity is now under such threat in the Middle East; an area where Christians have lived for 2,000 years, and across which Islam spread in 700AD, with people of different faiths living together peaceably for centuries.”
Good to see Prince Charles grow a set and at least state the obvious, about Middle East being cleansed of Christians.
It is also noteworthy his call for the universal human right to choose and change your religion to be respected by Islam, and especially in the West. We in Australia should make it crystal clear that any Muslims must have a right to convert away from Islam.
Problem is, Islam does not allow this and considers apostasy punishable by death. It is even law in many Muslim countries. The Muslim Imams should be asked to communicate this to their flock, and if they don’t, as they cannot, then what? We all continue conveniently ignoring this gross breach of human rights in the West and Australia in particular?
Dr Denis MacEoin is a former lecturer in Arabic and Islamic Studies and a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute. He, too, calls for a reform of Islam, although I am increasingly pessimistic about that being even possible:The problem is simpler than any politician or moderate Muslim or Christian outreach foundation journalist has ever been willing to admit: Many Muslims who want to turn young believers away from jihad or hatred of Christians, Jews and other non-believers are trapped. They are trapped because the Qur’an—the six compilations of sacred traditions the ahadith, which make up holy writ, as well as the biography of Muhammad the sira—all condone or command jihad and hatred for non-believers, and they do so abundantly.
Patrick “Pat” Condell is a writer, comedian and atheist internet personality. He performed alternative comedy shows during the 1980s and 1990s in the United Kingdom, and won a Time Out Comedy Award in 1991.
He explains why he dislikes Islam – because there is not much to like, and if you invented it today, what with killing apostates, blasphemers and adulterers and homosexuals, you would be rightly locked up for your own good. This commentary is blindingly clear and hilarious, if it were not tragic.
Look here for his many references.
Another video on Pat’s website is ‘A cure for Islamophobia’. Indeed, there is no such thing – because a phobia is an irrational fear of something. A fear of a hostile murderous totalitarian ideology, killing your kind for being your kind and infiltrating your country is hardly irrational, no matter how peaceful they claim to be. The Allies did not have Nazi-phobia, US didn’t have Commie-phobia and Australians threatened by ISIS and Iraqis being killed by ISIS today are not Islamophobic.
Peace or Jihad? Abrogation in Islam
In case you haven’t noticed, there is a global resurgence of Islamic territorial expansion. This is through immigration, through cultural and political insinuation and finally through war and terror. Why, when Islam is a religion of Peace?
Well, it seems the bad news is that Islam is a religion of submission, not peace and tolerance. There will be jihad and no peace until all lands are governed by Muslims. Islam clearly directs Muslims towards Jihad – the struggle for personal and societal submission to Islam. The root word of Islam is “al-silm” which means “submission” or “surrender.” It is understood to mean “submission to Allah.”
But there are many passages in the Qur’an preaching peace and tolerance towards other religions. No verse is more frequently cited by contemporary Muslims preachers and analysts to depict Islam as peaceful and compassionate as 2:256, “Let there be no compulsion in religion.”The problem is that these early passages, written revealed by Mohammed when he was weak in Mecca, are abrogated or superseded by later militant passages when he became stronger in Medina.
In an age of terrorism and violent jihad, nowhere, they argue, does the Qur’an allow Muslims to fight non-Muslims solely because they refuse to become Muslim. Proponents of Islamic tolerance point to a number of Qur’anic verses which admonish violence and advocate peace, tolerance, and compromise.. But not all verses in the Qur’an have the same weight in assessment. The Qur’an is unique among sacred scriptures in accepting a doctrine of abrogation in which later pronouncements of the Prophet declare null and void his earlier pronouncements.
During the lifetime of Muhammad, the Islamic community passed through three stages. In the beginning from 610 until 622, God commanded restraint. As the Muslims relocated to Medina (623-26), God permitted Muslims only to fight in a defensive war. However, in the last six years of Muhammad’s life (626-32), God permitted Muslims to fight an aggressive war first against polytheists, and later against monotheists like the Jews of Khaybar. Once Muhammad was given permission to kill in the name of God, he instigated battle.
Chapter 9 of the Qur’an, in English called “Ultimatum,” is the most important concerning the issues of abrogation and jihad against unbelievers. It is the only chapter that does not begin “in the name of God, most benevolent, ever-merciful.”. David Powers, a well-known researcher of classical Islam, agreed that 9:5 abrogates no less than 124 verses that command or imply anything less than a total offensive against the non-believers.
Defensive warfare in Islam is nothing but a phase of the Islamic mission that the Prophet practiced. After that, it was followed by another phase, that is, calling all people to embrace Islam. Even for People of the Book, there can be no role except conversion to Islam or subjugation to Muslim rule. Hence, Muhammad’s statement, “They would not invade you, but you invade them.”
In conclusion, Islam is about submission …of the whole world to Allah through Jihad. Majority of Muslims probably don’t care and would prefer to just get on with life, but under Islam they are hypocrites punishable by death. Many Muslims perform Jihad peacefully, on a personal level, through immigration and advocacy. Many also do it violently with terror and war. But they are all obligated by Islam to eventually subjugate you and me to Allah.
