Muslims seek tolerance

Speakers at an annual Islamic brunch on Sunday called for greater understanding and tolerance, saying Muslims face constant threats to the kind of everyday existence that other Americans take for granted.

Opening the event, Waheed Khalid, chairman of the Bergen County Chapter of the American Muslim Union, said that 3? years after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, Muslims are still feeling the aftershocks.

"The American Muslim community has never felt so insecure and apprehensive due to discrimination and intolerance," Khalid said. "Our government's actions following 9/11 have impacted and continue to impact tens of thousands of individuals in ways which seriously violate our Constitution. {The Koran clearly Violates the U.S. constitution. The Bible does not] They include ethnically and religiously based interrogations, detentions, raids and closures of Muslim charities."

Though the event came just one month after the slaying of four members of a Coptic Orthodox family in Jersey City, that incident was hardly mentioned. After the killings, a police source said that one of several leads being pursued was the possibility that the deaths were carried out by religious extremists.

Muslim leaders decried the suggestion and condemned the killings, while calling for solidarity across all religions. Authorities have yet to arrest anyone or publicly offer a motive for the killings.

Jamal Badawi, an economics professor and Muslim scholar, said the community has suffered from the media's portrayal of the Muslim holy book, the Quran, and in particular the suggestion that it condones a religious war, or jihad. He dismissed the idea, and jokingly offered $1 million to anyone who could find it in the Quran.

"It is a sad state of affairs that needs to be corrected, when we read that some surveys indicated that over 40 percent of the American public is in favor of curtailing the civil rights of Muslims," Badawi said. "This is unfair, this is undemocratic, this is un-American."

It is UN-AMERICAN to give aid and comfort to the enemy!

005.051 O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors {authorities]

008.039 And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere.[Throughout the earth} 004.101]

America was founded by Christians. [even 'the stones cry out' as a testament among many U.S. government buildings]

1Th 5:15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good. [Is it good to behead someone? What do the Muslim leaders say? - without calling their own allah a liar?]

 

Rom 13:9  Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

 

Rom 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.  

The solution, said Mohamed Younes, president of the American Muslim Union, is for all communities to work together in the way they did to help victims of the recent tsunami, many of whom were Muslims.

The solution is:

Zec 8:16 These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates

Eph 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

Only the Truth sets us free

"We have to ask ourselves this question," he said. "Why does it take a tragedy of such magnitude to bring out this compassion in us? Why can't we always work together?"

Second greatest commandment:

Mat 22:39 Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

008.067 It is not fitting for a prophet [of Islam] that he should have prisoners of war [slay them] until he hath thoroughly subdued the land. [Treason - in all non-Muslim nations]

009.029 Fight those who believe not in Allah

009.030 The Jews call 'Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

009.123 O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you.

047.004 Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers in fight [jihad], smite at their necks. [Cut their throats!]

Repeat:

After the killings, a police source said that one of several leads being pursued was the possibility that the deaths were carried out by religious extremists.

Muslim leaders decried the suggestion {This is why the Koran must be put on trial before ALL! No Muslim has more authority than their own god - and he calls ALL 'moderate' Muslims liars!

SEE} Men Armed 'Only With Words' Can Commit Genocide

A U.N. tribunal in 2003 found 3 men guilty and sentenced them to life in prison:

"You were fully aware of the power of words, and you used the radio ? the medium of communication with the widest public reach ? to disseminate hatred and violence,"

"Without a firearm, machete or any physical weapon, you caused the death of thousands of innocent civilians".

 Human rights advocates praised the verdict.

004.101 When ye travel through the earth, there is no blame on you if ye shorten your prayers, for fear the Unbelievers May attack you: For the Unbelievers are unto you open enemies.

004.092 Never should a believer kill a believer [But the 'unbelievers' - they are commanded to slay. That includes ALL who believe in the Son of God} 009.030 ]

009.004 (But the treaties are) not dissolved with those Pagans with whom ye have entered into alliance and who have not subsequently failed you in aught, nor aided any one against you. So fulfil your engagements with them to the end of their term.

009.005 But when the forbidden months are past [when the 'treaties' expire}  then fight and slay the Pagans ''''wherever'''' ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war.

008.039 And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere.

009.044 Those who believe in Allah and the Last Day ask thee for no exemption from fighting with their goods and persons. And Allah knoweth well those who do their duty.

004.095 Not equal are those believers who sit at home and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit at home. But those who strive and fight hath He distinguished above those who sit at home by a special reward.

002.216 Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing [war] which is good for you and that ye love a thing [peace] which is bad for you?

009.039 Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.

009.123 O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you.

047.004 Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers in fight [jihad], smite at their necks. [Cut their throats!]

1Cr 1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe?

where is the disputer of this world?

hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
