Kalandia – A checkpoint: Just Because”

Many Israelis think this is horrible and horrific. Many think it’s OK. For those who say it’s OK, then maybe it was OK for the Nazis to do the same to Jews?

The victims of the Holocaust are now creating a Holocaust that does not seem to stop!

The so-called “Jewish” state, which is really a state of pagans and NaZionists does not think.  They simply think God created them and in His name proceed to kill everyone who stands in their way! But they are really commanded by the devil himself…

Holocaust against Palestininas

The Nazis were more merciful towards the Jews they massacred. Israelis are, in comparison, subhuman. Here are excerpts from “Jewish” leaders..

We need to flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima – the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too.

There should be no electricity in Gaza, no gasoline or moving vehicles, nothing. Then they’d really call for a ceasefire.

Were this to happen, the images from Gaza might be unpleasant – but victory would be swift, and the lives of our soldiers and civilians spared.

– Gilad Sharon, the son of former prime minister and notorious war criminal Ariel Sharon, has called for the Israeli army to “flatten” Gaza as the US flattened the Japanese city of Hiroshima in 1945 with an atomic bomb. November 2012

Meanwhile in a message to soldiers, Knesset member Michael Ben-Ari of the National Union party exhorted soldiers to kill without thought or mercy.

“Brothers! Beloved soldiers and commanders – preserve your lives! Don’t give a hoot about Goldstone! There are no innocents in Gaza, don’t let any diplomats who want to look good in the world endanger your lives[;] at any tiniest concern for your lives – Mow them!,” Ben-Ari was quoted as saying by the website HaKol HaYehudi.

Ben-Ari was referring to the UN-commissioned Goldstone report that documented war crimes and crimes against humanity during Israel’s 2008-2009 invasion of Gaza which left more than 1,400 Palestinians, mostly civilians, dead.

Ben-Ari is also notorious for his incitement against Africans and for his hatred of Christians. In July he tore up a New Testament, calling it “abominable” and threw it in the trash.

 

A video posted on YouTube shows an Israeli mob rampaging in Jerusalem on 24 February with multiple voices heard shouting the racist slogan, “A Jew is a soul [i.e human], an Arab is a son of a whore.”

And such is Israeli love for peace and democracy! And the sheep of the world believe these heathens.

 

And in the U.S.A..

Israeli professor working in US calls Palestinian student a “cockroach”

 

The first incident occurred on Monday, 4 March, when the Claremont group of Students for Justice in Palestine launched its series of events marking Israeli Apartheid Week with street theater actions simulating mock Israeli military checkpoints at three of the colleges throughout the day. Israeli Apartheid Week is marked at campuses nationwide and internationally to educate the wider public about Israel’s occupation and supremacist rule in Palestine.

At one point that evening, a man who was later identified as a faculty member at Claremont McKenna College aggressively approached the Students for Justice in Palestine members staffing a mock checkpoint which was set up outside an entrance of the Collins Dining Hall on the campus.

The professor, Yaron Raviv, who is an Israeli citizen and teaches economics at Claremont McKenna College, demanded that the dining hall staff, the dean of students and campus security remove the Students for Justice in Palestine members from the

area.

But since Students for Justice in Palestine had acquired official permission for its event and had its paperwork in order, neither the school officials nor the dining staff agreed to remove the students. They did request, however, that the students not block the doorway.

The student activists complied with this request, according to a Claremont McKenna College Campus Safety and Security officer’s incident report.

A Palestinian member of Students for Justice in Palestine, Najib Hamideh, then walked up to the professor and politely asked his reason for being there, requesting that the man identify himself. In an exchange verified and quoted in the officer’s report, the professor then responded, “Fuck off, you cockroach.”

According to Hamideh, Raviv next referred to all the Students for Justice in Palestine members as cockroaches, and then asked him which of the Claremont colleges Hamideh belonged to. When Hamideh replied that he attends Pitzer College, Raviv then responded that “all Pitzer kids are cockroaches,” Hamideh says.

 

I ask again.. how does Israel (or Israelis) think? They don’t.. they’re savages. They’re subhuman.. and Hell awaits them!

It is almost superfluous to add that there has never been a Palestinian state or a sovereign Palestinian entity of any kind.

The words of Jewish extremists and terrorists who cry for “peace” while making abhorrent, discriminatory and false remarks to justify their NaZionist agenda. The article was posted on “Jew” World News and by a writer identified only as “ a former Israeli ambassador to the United State.”

What does one expect from a NaZionist?

Let me first define NaZionist for the average reader. You surely have noticed that it is a combination of Nazi and Zionist and thus NaZionist.

Nazis advocated the extermination of Jews in Europe as generally accepted by the masses and those who wrote history. Zionists advocated the same: the extermination of Palestinians from their lands of thousands of years, claiming that God, the Creator had promised it to Abraham and therefore it must belong only to Jews!

Mind you, Abraham never even heard of Judaism. And according to the Islamic faith, it is Abraham who named those who followed God’s words as Muslims! He and his son Isma’eel, built the Ka’aba in Mecca, the place millions of Muslims seek for the annual pilgrimage and honor the famous incident in which Abraham almost sacrificed his son, Isma’eel (then 16 years old) as commanded by God Himself – as a test of Abraham’s resolve and faith.

Judaism then, never existed until after the death of Moses.

The descendants of Abraham (Jacob’s – Israe’eel – sons) and the 12-tribes, were the 12 tribes of “Bani-Isra’eel” (the children of Isra’eel – or Jacob) who like Abraham, never new what the word Jew meant since it never existed… Bani-Israe’eel are also referred to Israelites and the country was named Israel to create the argument that Israel and the Israelites were one and the same!  Clever! I mean, amazing Jewish deception!!!

Now then, with this simple introduction, a person of average intelligence will deduce that Zionism came to the world, brainwashing the masses into believing that the Israelites were the early Jews of today’s Israel…

 

Yet and amazingly,  a Jewish Israeli Professor, Dr. Shlomo Sand, was the one who published a book about the Invention of the Jewish People! Dr Sand argues that the idea of a Jewish nation – whose need for a safe haven was originally used to justify the founding of the state of Israel – is a myth invented little more than a century ago. Read more here.

But NaZionists strategies continued with their brainwashing techniques and reversed the words to state that it was the Palestinians who were invented.

Desperate acts.. using religion – as violent as it was and continues to be – to justify massacring and exterminating Palestinians.

The “former ambassador” also tries to use ignorant and absurd logic to convince us that Arabs never identified themselves as Palestinians yet Jews did define themselves as Jews – in the Holy Land. Hold on to your horses here, Mr. ignorant former Israeli ambassador…

  1. A Jew is one who follows Judaism; a religion.
  2. A Palestinian is one who identifies himself  by the land he inhabits. Palestinians did refer to themselves by their faiths: Christian and Muslim.
  3. Likewise, Lebanese, Jordanians, Saudis, etc… must also be “invented” since they never referred to themselves by the land in which they resided.
  4. Then the demise of the Ottoman empire and the “christian invaders, if you will” divided and conquered the Middle East and North Africa into the countries we know today: then “educated” each division that their “citizenship” is now “Jordanian, Lebanese, Syrian and so on..”
  5. Then we have Americans… the invented people of the West. Americans should be recognized then as Colonists and only native Americans should be honored and called Americans. But that’s another story… and this is exactly what NaZionism is trying to achieve… an America-like scenario where Palestinians will only exist in “reservations” while European and American Jews who will emigrate to the Holy Land will eventually be referred to as Israelis.

Dream on… 

The Jewish faith predicts the demise of this heathen violent country of blasphemous inhabitants (Israeli NaZionists) and every year we hear a new interpretation of the demise of Israel by a Rabbi – and the year in which it is supposed to happen – per Talmudic teachings and the Rabbis who interpret the “scriptures…”

We know one fact for sure: Palestine will be freed. The second coming of Jesus peace be upon him will establish justice in the land after he, Jesus, kills the anti-Christ (I suspect he would be a Jew) and his followers, then it’s a matter of time – no prophecy had exactly pinpointed this – before the final day and The Day of Judgement!
 

 

 

 

Rapid City, South Dakota (CNN) — Walid Shoebat Shoe-butt had a blunt message for the roughly 300 South Dakota police officers and sheriff’s deputies who gathered to hear him warn about the dangers of Islamic radicalism.

Terrorism and Islam are inseparable, he tells them. All U.S. mosques should be under scrutiny.

“All Islamic organizations in America should be the No. 1 enemy. All of them,” he says.

It’s a message Shoebat is selling based on his own background as a Palestinian-American convert to conservative Christianity. Born in the West Bank, the son of an American mother, he says he was a Palestinian Liberation Organization terrorist in his youth who helped firebomb an Israeli bank in Bethlehem and spent time in an Israeli jail.

That billing helps him land speaking engagements like a May event in Rapid City — a forum put on by the state Office of Homeland Security, which paid Shoebat $5,000 for the appearance. He’s a darling on the church and university lecture circuit, with his speeches, books and video sales bringing in $500,000-plus in 2009, according to tax records.

“Being an ex-terrorist myself is to understand the mindset of a terrorist,” Shoebat told CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”

But CNN reporters in the United States, Israel and the Palestinian territories found no evidence that would support that biography. Neither Shoebat nor his business partner provided any proof of Shoebat’s involvement in terrorism, despite repeated requests.

Back in his hometown of Beit Sahour, outside Bethlehem, relatives say they can’t understand how Shoebat could turn so roundly on his family and his faith.

“I have never heard anything about Walid being a mujahedeen or a terrorist,” said Daood Shoebat, who says he is Walid Shoebat’s fourth cousin. “He claims this for his own personal reasons.”

CNN’s Jerusalem bureau went to great lengths trying to verify Shoebat’s story. The Tel Aviv headquarters of Bank Leumi had no record of a firebombing at its now-demolished Bethlehem branch. Israeli police had no record of the bombing, and the prison where Shoebat says he was held “for a few weeks” for inciting anti-Israel demonstrations says it has no record of him being incarcerated there either.

Shoebat says he was never charged because he was a U.S. citizen.

“I was born by an American mother,” he said. “The other conspirators in the act ended up in jail. I ended up released.”

He said his own family has vouched for his prison time. But relatives CNN spoke to described him as a “regular kid” who left home at 18, eventually becoming a computer programmer in the United States.

Shoebat, now in his 50s, says he converted to Christianity in 1993 and began spreading the word about the dangers of Islam. He has been interviewed as a terrorism expert on several television programs, including a handful of appearances on CNN and its sister network, HLN, in 2006 and 2007.

Since al Qaeda’s 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, expertise on terrorism has been in high demand. The federal Department of Homeland Security has spent nearly $40 million on counterterrorism training since 2006. The department doesn’t keep track of how much goes to speakers, nor does it advise officials on the speakers hired by states and municipalities.

Shoebat spoke at a 2010 conference in South Dakota and was so well-received that he was invited back for the May event in Rapid City, according to state officials. He warned the police and first responders gathered in the hotel conference rooms that the Lebanese Shiite Muslim militia Hezbollah had operatives working in Mexico and that drug cartels were raising money with Islamic groups. He also asserted that federal agents could have prevented the 9/11 attacks by looking for a chafed spot, called “zabibah,” that sometimes forms on the foreheads of devout Muslims.

“You need ex-terrorists who can tell you what life is like and what thinking is like of potential terrorists,” Shoebat said. “But had we looked at the zabibah only, we would have deflected a suicide action of killing 3,000 Americans.”

But Shoebat also told the group there were 17 hijackers when there were 19. And perhaps more surprising from a man who bills himself as a terror expert, Shoebat said the Transportation Security Administration could have stopped them. The TSA wasn’t created until after the 9-11 attacks.

Jim Carpenter, South Dakota’s homeland security director, said Shoebat brought “a point of view that certainly is not mainstream.”

“He brings in commentary about living and being raised as a Muslim and converting over to Christianity — gives them a different aspect of breaking the mold, so to speak,” Carpenter said. But he said Shoebat’s appearance was “a small portion” of the two-and-a-half-day conference.

“It’s not like we’re talking about setting up training and a discipline we would follow, that this is the only way and that’s the particular point of view of a Muslim or somebody of the Islamic faith. That’s not the case,” Carpenter said. “That’s his point of view.”

Carpenter said there is “no fear of threat” from Islamic terrorism in South Dakota, where the last census reports showed the state’s Muslim community made up less than one-half of 1 percent of the population. According to Rapid City’s local newspaper, about two dozen Muslims live in the city.

During Shoebat’s presentation, he criticized Muslim organizations and told audience members to be leery of Muslim doctors, engineers, students and mosques.

“Now, we aren’t saying every single mosque is potential terrorist headquarters. But if you look at certain reports by the Hudson report, 80 percent of mosques they found pamphlets and education on jihad. So they’re in the mosque, the mosque in accordance to the Muslim brotherhood is the command post and center.”

The conservative Hudson Institute said it never issued such a report and has no idea why its name was invoked.

Shoebat warned that making special accommodations for Muslim beliefs was a step toward establishing Islamic religious law. And he recounted how he wore a T-shirt that read “Profile me” on a trip to the airport and approached the screeners at the security checkpoint.

“I got tapped down, I got checked, I got all these different things,” he said. “I say it’s wonderful.”

Shoebat and business partner Keith Davies run several foundations and three websites that are all linked. Shoebat said the major group, the Forum for Middle East Understanding, includes his own Walid Shoebat Foundation.

In tax records filed by Davies, the Forum for Middle East Understanding reported 2009 earnings from speaking engagements, videos and book sales of more than $560,000. The documents are thin on specifics, and so is Shoebat.

“Basically, we are in information, and we do speaking and we do also helping Christians that are being persecuted in countries like Pakistan, and we help Christians that are suffering all throughout the Middle East,” he said. Asked how they do that, he said, “None of your business” — adding that disclosing details could endanger people he was trying to help in Islamic countries that have laws against blasphemy.

Shoebat’s name doesn’t appear on any of the paperwork. As for his own salary, he said he makes “probably what a gas station makes or a garage makes.”

“Everybody thinks I’m just raking in the dough, which is absolutely incorrect,” he said. He referred details to Davies, who offered to provide a copy of the group’s tax returns — but didn’t. When asked who served on the foundation’s board of advisers, Davies gave “Anderson Cooper 360” the name of a former pilot, who didn’t return phone calls. But he could not name the high-ranking military officers he said were on the board.

Federal officials say they don’t know exactly how much money has gone to speakers like Shoebat. But in April, the bipartisan leaders of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee raised concerns about “vitriolic diatribes” being delivered by “self-appointed counterterrorism experts” at similar seminars.

Sen. Susan Collins, the committee’s Republican chairwoman, and Connecticut Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman asked the department to account for how much federal grant money went to state and local counterterrorism programs and what standards guided those grants. The request followed reports by the liberal Political Research Associates and the Washington Monthly that raised similar questions.

The Homeland Security Department told CNN that it has standards — and if training programs don’t meet them, “corrective action will be taken.”

“We have not and will not tolerate training programs — or any DHS-supported program — that rely on racial or ethnic profiling,” the agency said in a written statement.

 

 

You may have read Netanyahu and the Lies about Jerusalem back a year ago.

The Nazi-Zionist is back… addressing a sleepy Congress (Israel’s puppets) and continuing with the charade.

Is Congress as ignorant as they appear? Are these the same people condemning Gaddafi and Assad and Saleh for oppressing their people yet applaud Netanyahu’s continued massacres of Palestinians?

“Israel will not return to the indefensible boundaries of 1967,” Netanyahu said, prompting a big standing ovation.

There you have it! The U.S. Congress blesses and approves terrorism and oppression!

Netanyahu said on Tuesday that Israelis were prepared to make “painful compromises” in a peace deal that would leave some or outlying Jewish settlements beyond the state’s agreed borders! The only painful compromises Israelis are willing to make are those directed at increased pain and sufferings they exert on Palestinians. 63 years of lies and continued annexations and aggressions and our ignorant congress continues kissing Israel’s ass…

It’s simple… these ignorant degenerate hypocrites are seeking AIPAC’s blessings and money. It’s re-election time. This is the usual “Kiss Israel’s Ass and Win.”

“The status of the settlements will be decided only in negotiations..”

Talk about hypocrisy and deception. First steal Palestinian lands, then build illegal Israeli settlements and finally negotiate… brilliant! So if I may, I will hijack your car, for example, steal and enjoy it and then offer you something back if you are willing to negotiate with me an agreement, whereby I keep the car and maybe hand you back the key-chain. Perfect.

Netanyahu’s at times belligerent tone is not likely to persuade countries considering how to vote at the UN on Palestinian statehood, particularly European governments. He said support for any such move would undermine not further the cause of peace. The Guardian

What does one expect from a NaZionist? Yet I’m still baffled by these subhuman elected morons in congress. Holding a Bible behind their backs, they bless the Devil himself!

Benjamin Netanyahu speech to Congress unlikely to do much for peace process. The Telegraph got it right.

The sleepy dwarfs in congress and their “hero” Netanyahu should learn something or two from the events and revolutions sweeping the Middle East and North Africa. Israel will face the same uprising. Arabs in general and Palestinians in particular are unafraid of tanks, guns and F-16’s. Half of the population is willing to die in peaceful protests to guarantee their children freedom and democracy.

And it’s coming soon.

The recent incidents in the Arab Palestinian city of Nablus, where a a group of supposedly Ultra Orthodox Jews went to pray inside the Tomb of Prophet Joseph (when Jews don’t even consider Joseph a Prophet), is simply a joke. Maybe its the Jewish version of April’s fool!

Ultra-Orthodox Jews frequently defy a military ban on entering the shrine that is in Palestinian-controlled territory.

The incident came in the wake of Israeli forces’ Friday attack on a group of Palestinian and international activists protesting Tel Aviv’s separation barriers built on Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank.

At least 13 demonstrators were injured on Friday when Israeli soldiers attacked protesters in the town of Bil’in, near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Elsewhere, three Palestinians were wounded in separate incidents after Israeli troops attacked the blockaded Gaza Strip on the same day, according to medical sources.

Israel has been regularly bombarding Gaza ever since its 22-day massacre on the impoverished enclave in December 2008 and January 2009, which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians — most of whom were women and children.

Jews and especially these terrorist-settlers will create any lie to justify the stealing of more Arab Palestinian lands.

The facts (and comparisons) are as follows:

  • Joseph is represented as a “perfectly righteous man” the rabbinical literature! One opinion holds that the Holy Spirit dwelt in Joseph from his childhood until his death (Pirke R. El. 38).
  • Judaism began after the revelations to Moses.
  • 300 to 500 years separate Joseph and Moses

Therefore Joseph, his father Jacob and his father Isaac and his father Abraham could not have been Jews. Period.  See I will bless those who bless thee

For the Ultra-Orthodox to claim his shrine in Nablus as “their own,” or for that matter, Abraham’s tomb in Hebron as Jewish shrines, are despicable historic manipulations to serve a Zionist Nazi-like Jewish-supremacist agenda.

It is Palestinians who are the real descendants of Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses and Jesus!  The real descendants of the inhabitants of the Kingdom of Judah are the Palestinians as Dr. Shlomo Sand explains in his best seller (When and How Was the Jewish People Invented):

“It is not taught in Israeli schools but most of the early Zionist leaders, including David Ben Gurion [Israel’s first prime minister], believed that the Palestinians were the descendants of the area’s original Jews. They believed the Jews had later converted to Islam.”

Meanwhile, the Nazi forces of Israel will use any excuse to massacre and kidnap more Palestinians. And Palestinians will retaliate and the cycle will continue until the Holy land is cleansed from the filth of Zionists!

The Quran and Joseph (Yusuf)

12:4 LO! Thus spoke Joseph unto his father: “O my father! Behold, I saw [in a dream] eleven stars, as well as the sun and the moon: I saw them prostrate themselves before me!”

12:5 [Jacob] replied: “O my dear son! Do not relate thy dream to thy brothers lest [out of envy] they devise an evil scheme against thee; verily, Satan is man’s open foe!

As in the Biblical account of Joseph’s story, the Qur’an shows that Jacob did not fail to understand the meaning of his son’s dream-vision of future greatness, with the eleven stars symbolizing his brothers, and the sun and the moon his parents. But whereas the Bible quotes the father as “rebuking” his son (Genesis xxxvii, 10) in the obvious assumption that the dream was an outcome of wishful thinking, the Qur’an makes it clear that Jacob – who was himself a prophet – at once realized its prophetic quality and its deeper implications.(Quran Ref: 12:5 )

12:6 For, [as thou hast been shown in thy dream,] even thus will thy Sustainer elect thee, and will impart unto thee some understanding of the inner meaning of happenings,  and will bestow the full measure of His blessings upon thee and upon the House of Jacob -even as, aforetime, He bestowed it in full measure upon thy forefathers Abraham and Isaac. Verily, thy Sustainer is all-knowing, wise!”

12:7 Indeed, in [the story of] Joseph and his brothers there are messages for all who search [after truth]

12:8 NOW [Joseph’s brothers] spoke [thus to one another:] “Truly, Joseph and his brother [Benjamin] are dearer to our father than we, even though we are so many. Behold, our father is surely suffering from an aberration!”

12:9 [Said one of them:] “Slay Joseph, or else drive him away to some [faraway] land, so that your father’s regard may be for you alone: and after this is done, you will be [free to repent and to live once again as] righteous people!”

12:10 Another of them said: “Do not slay Joseph, but -rather – if you must do something – cast him into the dark depths of this well, [whence] some caravan may pick him up.”

12:11 [On this they agreed; and thereupon] they spoke [thus to their father]: “O our father! Wherefore wilt thou not trust us with Joseph, seeing that we are indeed his well-wishers?

12:12 Let him go out with us tomorrow, that he may enjoy himself and play: and, verily, we shall guard him well!”

12:13 [Jacob] answered: “Behold, it grieves me indeed [to think] that you might take him with you, for I dread lest the wolf devour him at a moment when you are heedless of him!”

12:14 Said they: “Surely, if the wolf were to devour him notwithstanding that we are so many-then, behold, we ought ourselves to perish!”

12:15 And so, when they went away with him, they decided to cast him into the dark depths of the well. And We revealed [this] unto him: “Thou wilt yet remind them of this their deed at a time when they shall not perceive [who thou art] !”

12:16 And at nightfall they came to their father, weeping,

12:17 [and] said: “O our father! Behold, we went off racing with one another, and left Joseph behind with our things; and thereupon the wolf devoured him! But [we know that] thou wouldst not believe us even though we speak the truth”

12:18 and they produced his tunic with false blood upon it. [But Jacob] exclaimed: “Nay, but it is your [own] minds that have made [so terrible] a happening seem a matter of little account to you! But [as for myself,] patience in adversity is most goodly [in the sight of God]; and it is to God [alone] that I pray to give me strength to bear the misfortune which you have described to me.”

12:19 AND THERE CAME a caravan;  and they sent forth their drawer of water, and he let down his bucket into the well – [and when he saw Joseph] he exclaimed: “Oh, what a lucky find, this boy!” And they hid him with a view to selling him: but God had full knowledge of all that they were doing.

12:20 And they sold him for a paltry price – a mere few silver coins: thus low did they value him

12:21 And the man from Egypt who bought him said to his wife: “Make his stay [with us] honourable; he may well be of use to us, or we may adopt him as a son. And thus We gave unto Joseph a firm place on earth; and [We did this] so that We might impart unto him some understanding of the inner meaning of happenings. For, God always prevails in whatever be His purpose: but most people know it not.

12:22 And when he reached full manhood, We bestowed upon him the ability to judge [between right and wrong], as well as [innate] knowledge: for thus do We reward the doers of good.

12:23 And [it so happened that] she in whose house he was living [conceived a passion for him and] sought to make him yield himself unto her; and she bolted the doors and said, “Come thou unto me!” [But Joseph] answered: “May God preserve me! Behold, goodly has my master made my stay [in this house]! Verily, to no good end come they that do [such] wrong!”

12:24 And, indeed, she desired him, and he desired her; [and he would have succumbed] had he not seen [in this temptation] an evidence of his Sustainer’s truth: thus [We willed it to be] in order that We might avert from him all evil and all deeds of abomination -for, behold, he was truly one of Our servants.

The interpolated phrase “and he would have succumbed”, is implied in the above sentence. The moral significance of “virtue” consists in one’s inner victory over a wrongful desire, and not in the absence of such a desire.  The well-known saying of the Prophet, recorded, on the authority of Abu Hurayrah, by Bukhari and Muslim: “God, exalted be He, says: ‘If a servant of Mine [merely] desires to do a good deed, I shall count this [desire] as a good deed; and if he does it, I shall count it tenfold. And if he desires to commit a bad deed, but does not commit it, I shall count this as a good deed, seeing that he refrained from it only for My sake…”‘ -i.e., in consequence of a moral consideration (which, in the present instance, is described as “an evidence of God’s truth”).(Quran Ref: 12:24 )

12:25 And they both rushed to the door; and she [grasped and] rent his tunic from behind-and [lo!] they met her lord at the door! Said she: “What ought to be the punishment of one who had evil designs on [the virtue of] thy wife – [what] but imprisonment or a [yet more] grievous chastisement?”

12:26 [Joseph] exclaimed: “It was she who sought to make me yield myself unto her!” Now one of those present, a member of her own household, suggested this:If his tunic has been torn from the front, then she is telling the truth, and he is a liar;

Here, again, the Qur’anic narrative differs from the story as told in the Bible, since according to the latter (Genesis xxxix, 19-20), the husband immediately believed the false accusation and cast Joseph into prison; the episodes related in verses 26-34 of this surah do not appear in the Biblical account.(Quran Ref: 12:26 )

12:27 but if his tunic has been torn from behind, then she is lying, and he is speaking the truth.”

12:28 And when (her husband] saw that his tunic was torn from behind, he said: “Behold, this is [an instance] of your guile, O womankind! Verily, awesome is your guile!

12:29 [But,] Joseph, let this pass! And thou, [O wife,] ask forgiveness for thy sin-for, verily, thou hast been greatly at fault!”

According to almost all the commentators, the meaning is, “do not mention this to anyone”, the implication being that the husband was prepared to forgive and forget.

12:30 NOW the women of the city spoke [thus to one another]: “The wife of this nobleman is trying to induce her slave-boy to yield himself unto her! Her love for him has pierced her heart; verily, we see that she is undoubtedly suffering from an aberration!

12:31 Thereupon, when she heard of their malicious talk, she sent for them, and prepared for them a sumptuous repast, and handed each of them a knife and said [to Joseph]: “Come out and show thyself to them!” And when the women saw him, they were greatly amazed at his beauty, and [so flustered were they that] they cut their hands [with their knives], exclaiming, “God save us! This is no mortal man! This is nought but a noble angel!”

12:32 Said she: “This, then, is he about whom you have been blaming me! And, indeed, I did try to make him yield himself unto me, but he remained chaste. Now, however, if he does not do what I bid him, he shall most certainly be imprisoned, and shall most certainly find himself among the despised!

12:33 Said he: “O my Sustainer! Prison is more desirable to me than [compliance with] what these women invite me to: for, unless Thou turn away their guile from me, I might yet yield to their allure and become one of those who are unaware [of right and wrong].”

12:34 And his Sustainer responded to his prayer, and freed him from the threat of their guile: verily, He alone is all-hearing, all-knowing. –

12:35 For, presently it occurred to the nobleman and his household [even] after they had seen all the signs [of Joseph’s innocence] – that they might as well imprison him for a time.

12:36 NOW two young men happened to go to prison at the same time as Joseph.One of them said: “Behold, I saw myself [in a dream] pressing wine.” And the other said: “Behold, I saw myself [in a dream] carrying bread on my head, and birds were eating thereof.” [And both entreated Joseph:] “Let us know the real meaning of this! Verily, we see that thou art one of those who know well [how to interpret dreams]

According to the Biblical account (not contradicted by the Qur’an), they were the King’s cup-bearer and baker, both of them imprisoned for unspecified offences.(Quran Ref: 12:36 )

12:37 [Joseph] answered: “Ere there comes unto you the meal which you are [daily] fed, I shall have informed you of the real meaning of your dreams, [so that you might know what is to come] before it comes unto you: for this is [part] of the knowledge which my Sustainer has imparted to me. “Behold, I have left behind me the ways of people who do not believe in God, and who persistently refuse to acknowledge the truth of the life to come;

Joseph wants to avail himself of this opportunity to guide his two fellow-prisoners towards the true faith; and so, while promising that he would explain their dreams presently, he asks them to listen first to a short discourse on the oneness of God.(Quran Ref: 12:37 )

12:38 and I follow the creed of my forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It is not conceivable that we should [be allowed to] ascribe divinity to aught beside God: this is [an outcome] of God’s bounty unto us and unto all mankind -but most people are ungrateful.

12:39 “O my companions in imprisonment! Which is more reasonable: [belief in the existence of numerous divine] lords, each of them different from the other” – or [in] the One God, who holds absolute sway over all that exists?

12:40 “All that you worship instead of God is nothing but [empty] names which you have invented – you and your forefathers- [and] for which God has bestowed no warrant from on high. Judgment [as to what is right and what is wrong] rests with God alone-[and] He has ordained that you should worship nought but Him: this is the [one] ever-true faith; but most people know it not

12:41 “[And now,] O my companions in imprisonment, [I shall tell you the meaning of your dreams:] as for one of you two, he will [again] give his lord [the King] wine to drink; but as for the other, he will be crucified, and birds will eat off his head. [But whatever be your future,] the matter on which you have asked me to enlighten you has been decided [by God].”

12:42 And [thereupon Joseph] said unto the one of the two whom he considered saved: “Mention me unto thy lord [when thou art free]!” But Satan caused him to forget to mention [Joseph] to his lord, and so he remained in prison a few [more] years.

12:43 AND [one day] the King said: Behold, I saw [in a dream] seven fat cows being devoured by seven emaciated ones, and seven green ears [of wheat] next to [seven] others that were withered. O you nobles! Enlighten me about [the meaning of] my dream, if you are able to interpret dreams!”

12:44 They answered: ” [This is one of] the most involved and confusing of dreams, and we have no deep knowledge of the real meaning of dreams.”

12:45 At that, the one of the two [erstwhile prisoners] who had been saved, and [who suddenly] remembered [Joseph] after all that time, spoke [thus]: “It is I who can inform you of the real meaning of this [dream]; so let me go [in search of it].” 

12:46 [And he went to see Joseph in the prison and said to him:] “Joseph, O thou truthful one! Enlighten us about [the meaning of a dream in which] seven fat cows were being devoured by seven emaciated ones, and seven green ears [of wheat appeared] next to [seven] others that were withered – so that I may return [with thy explanation] unto the people [of the court, and] that they may come to know [what manner of man thou art]!”

12:47 [Joseph] replied: “You shall sow for seven years as usual; but let all [the grain] that you harvest remain [untouched] in its ear, excepting only a little, whereof you may eat:

12:48 for, after that [period of seven good years] there will come seven hard [years] which will devour all that you shall have laid up for them, excepting only a little of that which you shall have kept in store.

12:49 And after that there will come a year in which the people will be delivered from all distress,and in which they will press [oil and wine as before].”

12:50 And [as soon as Joseph’s interpretation. was conveyed to him,] the King said: “Bring him before me!” But when the [King’s] messenger came unto him, [Joseph] said: “Go back to thy lord and ask him [first to find out the truth] about those women who cut their hands-for, behold, [until now it is] my Sustainer [alone who] has full knowledge of their guile!”

12:51 [Thereupon the King sent for those women; and when they came,] he asked: “What was it that you hoped to achieve when you sought to make Joseph yield himself unto you?”  The women answered: “God save us! We did not perceive the least evil [intention] on his part!” [And] the wife of Joseph’s former masterexclaimed: “Now has the truth come to light! It was I who sought to make him yield himself unto me – whereas he, behold, was indeed speaking the truth!”

12:52 [When Joseph learned what had happened, he said:  “I asked for] this, so that [my former master] might know that I did not betray him behind his back, and that God does not bless with His guidance the artful schemes of those who betray their trust.

12:53 And yet, I am not trying to absolve myself: for, verily, man’s inner self does incite [him] to evil, and saved are only they upon whom my Sustainer bestows His grace. Behold, my Sustainer is much forgiving, a dispenser of grace!”

12:54 And the King said: “Bring him unto me, so that I may attach him to my own person.” And when he had spoken with him, [the King] said: “Behold, [from] this day thou shalt be of high standing with us, invested with all trust!”

12:55 [Joseph] replied: “Place in my charge the store-houses of the land; behold, I shall be a good and knowing keeper.

By making this request, Joseph wanted to assure an efficient build-up of grain reserves during the coming years of plenty, knowing well that they would be followed by seven years of scarcity. It is obvious from the sequence that his request was granted, and that he was able to fulfil the task which he had set himself.(Quran Ref: 12:55 )

12:56 And thus We established Joseph securely in the land [of Egypt]: he had full mastery over it, [doing] whatever he willed. [Thus do] We cause Our grace to alight upon whomever We will; and We do not fail to requite the doers of good.

12:57 But in the eyes of those who have attained to faith and have always been conscious of Us, a reward in the life to come is a far greater good [than any reward in this world].

12:58 AND [after some years,] Joseph’s brothers came [to Egypt] and presented themselves before him: and he knew them [at once], whereas they did not recognize him.

Le., to buy wheat from the stores which Joseph had accumulated during the seven years of plenty: for all the countries in the vicinity of Egypt were by now affected by the famine which he had predicted, and Egypt alone had a surplus, the distribution of which he supervised personally (cf. Genesis x1i, 54-57).(Quran Ref: 12:58 )

12:59 And when he had provided them with their provisions, he said: “[When you come here next,] bring unto me that brother of yours from your father’s side. Do you not see that I have given [you] full measure and have been the best of hosts?

Lit., “a brother of yours from your father”-i.e., their half-brother Benjamin, who was Joseph’s full brother (their mother having been Rachel, Jacob’s favourite wife), whereas the other ten had different mothers. Benjamin, the youngest of Jacob’s children, had not accompanied his brothers on their first journey to Egypt, but they had presumably mentioned him in the course of their conversation with Joseph.(Quran Ref: 12:59 )

12:60 But if you do not bring him unto me, you shall never again receive a single measure [of grain] from me, nor shall you [be allowed to] come near me!”

12:61 They answered: “We shall try to persuade his father to part with him, and, verily, we shall do [our utmost]!”

12:62 And [Joseph] said to his servants: “Place their merchandise in their camel-packs, so that they may find it there when they come home, and hence be the more eager to return.

“Their Merchandise” I.e., the goods which they had bartered for wheat (Ibn Kathir): a very plausible explanation in view of the fact that barter was the most common form of trade in those ancient times.(Quran Ref: 12:62 )

12:63 And so, when they returned to their father, [Joseph’s brothers] said: “O our father! All grain is [to be] withheld from us [in the future unless we bring Benjamin with us]: send, therefore, our brother with us, so that we may obtain our measure (of grain]; and, verily, we shall guard him well!”

12:64 [Jacob] replied: “Shall I trust you with him in the same wayas I trusted you with his brother (Joseph] aforetime? [Nay,] but God’s guardianship is better [than yours], for He is the most merciful of the merciful!”

12:65 Thereupon, when they opened their packs, they discovered that their merchandise had been returned to them; [and] they said: “O our father! What more could we desire? Here is our merchandise: it has been returned to us! [If thou send Benjamin with us,] we shall (again] be able to bring food for our family, and shall guard our brother [well], and receive in addition another camel-load of grain That [which we have brought the first time] was but a scanty measure.”

12:66 Said [Jacob]: “I will not send him with you until you give me a solemn pledge, before God, that you will indeed bring him back unto me, unless you yourselves be encompassed [by death]!” And when they had given him their solemn pledge, [Jacob] said: “God is witness to all that we say!”

12:67 And he added: “O my sons! Do not enter [the city all] by one gate, but enter by different gates. Yet [even so,] I can be of no avail whatever to you against [anything that may be willed by] God: judgment [as to what is to happen] rests with none but God. In Him have I placed my trust: for, all who have trust [in His existence] must place their trust in Him alone.”

12:68 But althoughthey entered [Joseph’s city] in the way their father had bidden them, this proved of no avail whatever to them against [the plan of] God [His request] had served only to satisfy Jacob’s heartfelt desire [to protect them]: for, behold, thanks to what We had imparted unto him, he was indeed endowed with the knowledge [that God’s will must always prevail ]; but most people know it not.

When Jacob gave his sons this advice, he followed only an instinctive, humanly-understandable urge, and did not really expect that any outward precaution would by itself help them: for, as he himself pointed out on parting, “judgment as to what is to happen rests with none but God”. This stress on man’s utter dependence on God – a fundamental tenet of Islam – explains why Jacob’s advice (which in itself is not relevant to the story) has been mentioned in the above Qur’anic narrative.(Quran Ref: 12:68 )

12:69 AND WHEN [the sons of Jacob] presented themselves before Joseph, he drew his brother [Benjamin] unto himself, saying [to him in secret]: “Behold, I am thy brother! So grieve thou not over their past doings!”

Thus, contrary to the Biblical account, Joseph is stated here to have disclosed his identity to Benjamin long before he revealed himself to his ten half-brothers. The words “their past doings” obviously refer to their treacherous behaviour towards himself which Joseph had now presumably disclosed to Benjamin.(Quran Ref: 12:69 )

12:70 And [later,] when he had provided them with their provisions, he placed the [King’s] drinking-cup in his brother’s camel-pack. And [as they were leaving the city,] a herald called out: “O you people of the caravan! Verily, you are thieves!

This extremely plausible explanation contrasts sharply with the Biblical account of this incident (Genesis xliv), according to which the false accusation was part of an inexplicable “stratagem” devised by Joseph. If we discard-as we must-this part of the Biblical version, it is far more logical to assume that Joseph, who had been granted by the King full authority over all that belonged to the latter (see verse 56 above), had placed the royal cup as a present in the bag of his favourite brother; and that he did this secretly, without informing his servants, because he did not want anyone, least of all his ten half-brothers, to know his predilection for Benjamin.

12:71 Turning towards the herald and his companions, the brothers asked: “What is it that you miss?”

12:72 They answered: “We miss the King’s goblet; and he who produces it shall receive a camel-load [of grain as reward]!” And [the herald added:] “I pledge myself to this _ [promise]!”

12:73 Said [the brothers]: “By God! Well do you know that we have not come to commit deeds of corruption in this land, and that we have not been thieving!”

12:74 [The Egyptians] said: “But what shall be the requital of this [deed] if you are [proved to be] liars?”

12:75 [The brothers] replied: “Its requital? He in whose camel-pack [the cup] is found-he shall be [enslaved as] a requital thereof! Thus do we [ourselves] requite the doers of [such] wrong.

12:76 Thereupon [they were brought before Joseph to be searched; and] he began with the bags of his half-brothersbefore the bag of his brother [Benjamin]: and in the end he brought forth the drinking Cupsout of his brother’s bag. In this way did We contrive for Joseph [the attainment of his heart’s desire]: under the King’s law, he would [otherwise] not have been able to detain his brother, had not God so willed. We do raise to [high] degrees [of knowledge] whomever We will – but above everyone who is endowed with knowledge there is One who knows all.

The meaning of this story is now clear: it is a further illustration of the basic doctrine that “judgment [as to what is to happen] rests with none but God” (verse 67 above). Joseph had wanted to keep Benjamin with himself, but under the law of Egypt he could not do this without the consent of his half-brothers, who were the legal guardians of their minor brother; and they -bound as they were by the solemn promise given to their father-would certainly not have agreed to Benjamin’s remaining behind. The only other alternative open to Joseph was to disclose his identity to them; but since he was not yet prepared td go so far, he was obliged to allow Benjamin to depart with his brothers. The accidental discovery of his gift, entirely unexpected by Joseph, changed everything: for now Benjamin appeared to be guilty of theft, and under the law of the land Joseph was entitled to claim him as his slave, and thus to keep him in his house. The words, “In this way did We contrive for Joseph [the attainment of his heart’s desire]”, referring to the incident of the cup, indicate that its final outcome was neither planned nor even foreseen by Joseph.(Quran Ref: 12:76 )

12:77 [As soon as the cup came to light out of Benjamin’s bag, the brothers] exclaimed: “If he has stolen-well, a brother of his used to steal afore-time !”Thereupon Joseph said to himself, without revealing his thought to them: “You are far worse in this respect, and God is fully aware of what you are saying.

12:78 They said: “O thou great one! Behold, he has a father, a very old man: detain, therefore, one of us in his stead. Verily, we see that thou art a doer of good!”

12:79 He answered: “May God preserve us from [the sin of] detaining any other than him with whom we have found our property-for then, behold, we would indeed be evildoers!”

12:80 And so, when they lost all hope of [moving] him, they withdrew to take counsel [among themselves]. The eldest of them said: “Do you not rememberthat your father has bound you by a solemn pledge before God – and how, before that, you had failed with regard to Joseph? Hence, I shall not depart from this land till my father gives me leave or God passes judgment in my favour:for He is the best of all judges.

12:81 [And as for you others,] return to your father and say: `O our father! Behold, thy son has stolen-but we [can] bear witness to no more than what has become known to us;and [although we gave you our pledge,] we could not guard against something that [lay hidden in the future and, hence,] was beyond the reach of our perception.

12:82 And ask thou in the town in which we were [at the time], and of the people of the caravan with whom we travelled hither, and [thou wilt find that] we, are indeed telling the truth!”‘

12:83 [AND WHEN they returned to their father and told him what had happened,] he exclaimed: “Nay, but it is your [own] minds that have made [so terrible] a happening seem a matter of little account to you! But [as for myself,] patience in adversity is most goodly; God may well bring them all [back] unto me:verily, He alone is all-knowing, truly wise!”

12:84 But he turned away from them and said: “O woe is me for Joseph!”-and his eyes became dimfrom the grief with which he was filled.

Lit., “white”: i.e., dim with the tears that filled them. Although Jacob was now deprived of three of his sons, his grief for Joseph was the most acute because he was the only one of the three of whom Jacob did not know whether he was dead or alive.(Quran Ref: 12:84 )

12:85 Said [his sons]: “By God! Thou wilt never cease to remember, Joseph till thou art broken in body and spirit or art dead!”

12:86 He answered: “It is only to God that I complain of my deep grief and my sorrow: for I know, from God, something that you do not know.

Namely, that “judgment as to what is to happen rests with none but God”, and that “all who have ‘trust [in His existence] must place their trust in Him alone” (verse 67): the twin ideas which underlie the whole of this surah, and which Jacob now seeks to impress upon his sons. In addition to this, his remembrance of Joseph’s prophetic dream (verse 4) and his own conviction at the time that his beloved son would be elected by God for His special grace (verse 6), fills Jacob with renewed hope that Joseph is still alive and this explains the directives which he gives his sons in the next sentence.(Quran Ref: 12:86 )

12:87 [Hence,] O my sons, go forth and try to obtain some tidings of Joseph and his brother; and do not lose hope of God’s life-giving mercy:verily, none but people who deny the truth can ever lose hope of God’s life-giving mercy.

12:88 [AND THE SONS of Jacob went back to Egypt and to Joseph;] and when they presented themselves before him, they said: “O thou great one! Hardship has visited us and our folk, and so we have brought but scanty merchandise;but give us a full measure [of grain], and be charitable to us: behold, God rewards those who give in charity!”

12:89 Replied he: “Do you remember what you did to Joseph and his brother when you were still unaware [of right and wrong]?”

By coupling his own name with that of Benjamin he possibly hinted at his brothers’ early envy and hatred of the two sons of Rachel (cf. verse 8 of this surah); alternatively, the mention of Benjamin may have been due to the readiness with which they accepted the “evidence” of the latter’s guilt (verse 77).(Quran Ref: 12:89 )

12:90 They exclaimed: “Why – is it indeed thou who art Joseph?” He answered: “I am Joseph, and this is my brother. God has indeed been gracious unto us. Verily, if one is conscious of Him and patient in adversity behold, God does not fail to requite the doers of good!”

12:91 [The brothers] said: “By God! Most certainly has God raised thee high above us, and we were indeed but sinners!”

12:92 Said he: “No reproach shall be uttered today against you. May God forgive you your sins: for He is the most merciful of the merciful!

12:93 [And now] go and take this tunic of mine and lay it over my father’s face, and he will recover his sight.And thereupon come [back] to me with all your family.”

12:94 AND AS SOON as the caravan [with which Jacob’s sons were travelling] was on its way,their father said [to the people around him]: “Behold, were it not that you might consider me a dotard, [I would say that] I truly feel the breath of Joseph [in the air]!”

12:95 They answered: “By God! Thou art indeed still lost in thy old aberration!”

12:96 But when the bearer of good tidings came [with Joseph’s tunic], he laid it over his face; and he regained his sight, [and] exclaimed: “Did I not tell you, `Verily, I know, from God, something that you do not know’?”

12:97 [His sons] answered: “O our father! Ask God to forgive us our sins, for, verily, we were sinners.”

12:98 He said: “I shall ask my Sustainer to forgive you: He alone is truly forgiving, a true dispenser of grace!”

12:99 AND WHEN they [all arrived in Egypt and] presented themselves before Joseph, he drew his parents unto himself,saying, “Enter Egypt! If God so wills, you shall be secure [from all evil]!”

According to the Biblical account – not contradicted by the Qur’an – Joseph’s mother Rachel had died while giving birth to Benjamin. We may, therefore, assume that the “mother” implied in the term “parents” was another of Jacob’s wives, who had brought up Joseph and Benjamin; this would be in consonance with the ancient Arabian custom of applying the designation “mother” to a foster-mother.(Quran Ref: 12:99 )

12:100 And he raised his parents to the highest place of honour [throne]; and they [all] fell down before Him, prostrating themselves in adoration. Thereupon [Joseph] said: “O my father! This is the real meaning of my dream of long ago, which my Sustainer has made come true.And He was indeed good to me when He freed me from the prison, and [when] He brought you [all unto me] from the desert after Satan had sown discord between me and my brothers. Verily, my Sustainer is unfathomable in [the way He brings about] whatever He wills:verily, He alone is all-knowing, truly wise!

The fulfilment of Joseph’s childhood dream consisted in the high dignity with which he was now invested and in the fact that his parents and his brothers had come from Canaan to Egypt for his sake: for “no reasonable person can expect that the fulfilment of a dream should be an exact replica of the dream itself”.(Quran Ref: 12:100 )

12:101 “O my Sustainer! Thou hast indeed bestowed upon me something of power,and hast imparted unto me some knowledge of the inner meaning of happenings.Originator of the heavens and the earth! Thou art near unto me in this world and in the life to come: let me die as one who has surrendered himself unto Thee, and make me one with the righteous!”

12:102 THIS ACCOUNT of something that was beyond the reach of thy perception We [now] reveal unto thee, [O Prophet Muhammad:] for thou wert not with Joseph’s brothers when they resolved upon what they were going to do and wove their schemes [against him].

I find it interesting that some bloggers here assume that people are as ignorant as they are. Or maybe by making certain statements (look it up yourself…) they assume that people will just take their word for it.

An uneducated (as in ignorant) blogger wrote this about the situation in the Middle East – and particularly, Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood:

If you are not familiar with these gangsters of islam then you should spend some time doing a bit of research about them.  It isn’t hard to find all sorts of information about them on the internet, they’re a highly visible group.  They are a well organized, determined and frightening bunch intent on overthrowing western-minded civilizations and instituting rigid compliance with sharia law.

Interesting and false claim. Here’s what my own research about the Muslim Brotherhood revealed:

Wikipedia:

It was founded in 1928 in Egypt by the Islamic scholar and schoolteacher Hassan al-Banna. The Brotherhood’s stated goal is to instill the Qur’an and Sunnah as the “sole reference point for … ordering the life of the Muslim family, individual, community … and state”.[4] Since its inception in 1928 the movement has officially opposed violent means to achieve its goals.

Wikipedia also states that the Council on Foreign Relations says: “At various times in its history, the group has used or supported violence and has been repeatedly banned in Egypt for attempting to overthrow Cairo’s secular government. Since the 1970s, however, the Egyptian Brotherhood has disavowed violence and sought to participate in Egyptian politics.”

Interestingly, Wikipedia does not provide a link to the Council on Foreign Relations ( an impressive name and one that projects authority), regardless of their biased and incorrect anti-Islamic statements. If a couple of “personalities” are among its members, then we consider it a credible source? Further research reveals who they are. For now, let’s stay on the topic of the Brotherhood.

You can read more details about the Brotherhood on Wikipedia and the link is provided; unlike the moron who wrote the hate-statement in which he’s really trying to undermine a religion, based on his own anti-Semitic views and without any reference.

What is really intriguing on Wikipedia, is the fact that Osama Bin Laden had criticized the group!

The Mubarak oppressive and tyrant regime was behind the Brotherhood being accused of terrorism. It was a classic “Divide and Conquer” principle in which Mubarak’s regime ensured its grip remained supported and financed by the West.

Jewish Virtual Library

From the name, one can be certain that this militant Jewish view will have nothing positive to say about another religion, especially Islam. They write (about the Brotherhood):

The organization’s motto is as follows: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

An important aspect of the Muslim Brotherhood ideology is the sanctioning of jihad such as the 2004 fatwa issued by Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi making it a religious obligation of Muslims to abduct and kill U.S. citizens in Iraq.

I must say that these are impressive and strong accusations. I searched English and Arabic sites in which any of the above would appear as a direct quote to Qaradawi, or, at least something similar, and I failed to find one such statement. If you, the reader can, I welcome any reference and we’ll jointly evaluate and debate. When a group or a government wants to discredit someone or another country or group, it will make such statements as if they were facts without any reference, credible or otherwise!

The above image was found on an Arabic Blog. It reads:  Allah is our [ultimate] objective. The Prophet is our Example. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest aspiration.”

Jihad of course is the word Zionists and Neocons cleverly use to “prove” that Islam is all about war an/or killing; an utterly hateful and false claim. The Arabic word (Jihad) means struggle; not war. However, when it was used as struggle against the pagans of Mecca during the days of the Prophet, then of course it meant war!  That was when Muslims had to defended themselves against the pagans of Arabia.

The “Dying in the way of Allah is our highest aspiration/ hope” does not – promote war. During the time of the Prophet and in Muslims defending themselves against the pagans, the Quran comforted those new Muslims that their reward is highest than anyone elses if they were killed defending themselves against the pagans. This reward is an immediate entry to Paradise, according to Islamic belief, and living eternity directly below the Throne of God Almighty. In other words, the ceiling of one’s abode, is the Throne of Almighty!  Today it still means the same thing: that if one were to die defending his family, his honor or his country, the reward would be the same. The Quran clearly states that:

2:190 Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors.
60:8 Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.

On Wikipedia, it is stated that the Brotherhood preaches that Islam enjoins man to strive for social justice, the eradication of poverty and corruption, and political freedom to the extent allowed by the laws of Islam. The Brotherhood strongly opposes Western colonialism, and helped overthrow the pro-western monarchies in Egypt and other Muslim countries during the early 20th century.

Sounds like what we stand for in the U.S., does it not? We value freedom and don’t like colonialism, unless it is us doing it!

Sharia Law

Again, this blogger antisemitic and hate to Muslims and Islam is quite apparent in and from posting the famous photo-shopped picture of  a woman who was supposedly stoned to death. If you examine the picture casually, you will notice that the woman’s image is inserted in what seems to be a “hole” with rocks all around her and red marks on her face. Yet, there’s no spilled blood, no torn dress, dust or dirt on her “very black” garments. Little details the “creator” of the photo neglected to add.

I am yet to post something about the so-called Sahria “Law”  and prove that what most politicians and the media’s views are influenced by pro-Zionist terrorism to discredit Islam and Muslims in America. Period.

There is not even a single verse in the Quran that calls for stoning anyone!  Nor does the so-called Sharia “Law” support the stoning and/or killing as claimed. But if Iranians and/or Shiites do this, Islam and Muslims have nothing to do with this.

Does anyone accuse Christianity of being a racist and violent religion based on the KKK and its white-supremacist beliefs? Does one accuse Judaism in general to be an evil religion even when the Talmud contains violent and despicable teachings – from sex with infants to the permissibility of killing any non Jew?

Examples:

MISHNAH.WHEN A GROWN-UP MAN (7) HAS HAD SEXUAL INTERCOURSE WITH (8) A LITTLE GIRL, (9) OR WHEN A SMALL BOY (10) HAS INTERCOURSE WITH A GROWN-UP WOMAN, OR [WHEN A GIRL WAS ACCIDENTALLY] INJURED BY A PIECE OF WOOD (11) — [IN ALL THESE CASES] THEIR KETHUBAH IS TWO HUNDRED [ZUZ] … — Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Kethuboth 11a

Stoning in the Bible

1 Samuel 30.6: David was in great danger; for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in spirit for their sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.

Acts of the Apostles 7.59: While they were stoning Stephen, he prayed, ‘Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.’

2 Corinthians:  Five times I have received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. 25Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I received a stoning.

More from the Bible:

Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB)

If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives. (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)

A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death. (Exodus 21:15 NAB)

If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness. (Proverbs 20:20 NAB)

But if this charge is true (that she wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father’s house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB)

 

The flavor of the day is anti Islam and Muslims. The morons of the day do not realize and understand that this is parallel to, and downright antisemitism.  Yet most have been “trained” to associate antisemitism with Jews only.

One only needs to read, research and explore… the truth is right at one’s fingertips.
