A Columbia, MO Muslim says a state lawmaker’s e-mail response to a constituent’s criticism is further proof his faith is under attack on Capitol Hill. (As well it should be) State Rep. Rick Womick, R-Rockvale, called Islam in the e-mail a “political-militaristic-religion” responsible for 10 out of the last 11 terrorist attacks on Americans. (Ewwwwww, don’t confront Muslims with the facts, it might incite them to violence)
C-DH – Womick wrote he has studied Islam and its code known as Shariah for nine years, and he advised others to do the same before turning a blind eye and accusing others of intolerance.
Lawmakers are considering a bill that would authorize the governor and attorney general to designate an entity “a domestic terrorist” or “a foreign terrorist organization.” Initially, the measure mentioned Islam and Shariah by name, but it was later amended to strip any reference to a religion.
Daoud Abudiab, a Columbia Muslim whose mosque was torched by white supremacists in 2008, said Womick’s written remarks show lawmakers are really wanting to target the state’s Muslims, despite their assurances that is not the case. “He’s a state representative and he holds this view, and he wants me to trust another state representative to designate us as a terrorist organization or not. … It’s terrifying to think people of his stature believe that,” Abudiab said. (Actually, it is wonderful that a person of his stature are willing to tell the truth about Islam)
Aaron Nuell, (self-hating Jew) a second-grade teacher from Murfreesboro, wrote the critical letter to Womick, asking him to “stop attacking your Muslim constituents.” (A liberal Jewish teacher = lethal combination)
Abudiab was one of four Muslims who testified Tuesday against the measure, which is sponsored by Maury County’s Republican state Sen. Bill Ketron. Tennessee Muslims argue the legislation is unnecessary because of existing laws dealing with terrorism. They also argue it will be used to declare Muslims guilty by association of supporting terrorism. (Excellent!)
As many as 300 Muslims and representatives of interfaith groups showed up at the committee meeting at the legislative office complex at the Tennessee Capitol to oppose the bill. Abudiab said a private meeting after the hearing involving himself, Republican Speaker Pro Tempore Judd Matheny and other representatives of the Muslim community turned contentious.
“He (Matheny) abruptly asked the Muslim representatives to vacate his office and asked for law enforcement to assist in that without giving us a chance to walk out,” Abudiab said. (Well, how did he know they didn’t have knives in their pockets?)
Abudiab said one of the Muslim representatives was aggressively asserting his position, but he didn’t think law enforcement needed to be called because the man was not threatening anybody. “In my opinion, it was uncalled for and very disrespectful,” he said of Matheny’s decision to summon state troopers. “You would expect someone of his stature in public service to show more restraint.” (No, you would expect someone of his stature to protect his constituents from an evil death cult that threatens their way of life)
If you look at the Chronological Order of the Qur’an, you can see the last chapter is called Nasr. Every chapter has a name. In the traditional order, Nasr is the 110th chapter. But it was really the 114th; the last one “revealed” to Mohammad. He died 80 days later. The last chapter doesn’t say much. It’s just three verses basically saying “When Allah has achieved victory and conquered lots of people and when they are becoming Muslims in great numbers, praise Allah and ask for forgiveness.” That’s about it.
But if you look up the second to last chapter, called Taubah (which means “Ultimatum”), you will find it says a great deal about non-Muslims. In the traditional chapter order, this is chapter 9. Here are a few choice verses:
9:6 Those who submit and convert to Islam will be treated well. (Those who don’t submit will be killed. See previous verse.)
9:7-9 Don’t make treaties with non-Muslims. They are all evildoers and should not be trusted.
9:11 Treat converts to Islam well, but kill those who refuse to convert (see 9:5).
9:12-14 Fight the disbelievers! Allah is on your side; he will give you victory.
9:23 Don’t make friends with your disbelieving family members. Those who do so are wrong-doers.
9:29 Fight against Christians and Jews “until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.”
9:33 The “Religion of Truth” (Islam) must prevail, by force if necessary, over all other religions.
9:41 Fight for Allah with your wealth and whatever weapons are available to you.
9:42 Those who refuse to fight for Allah (claiming they are unable) are liars who have destroyed their souls.
9:73 Fight the disbelievers and hypocrites. Be harsh with them. They are all going to hell anyway.
9:81-83 Those who refuse to give their wealth and lives to Allah will face the fire of hell.
9:85 Those who refuse to fight for Allah will be treated (along with their children) as unbelievers.
9:111 Believers must fight for Allah. They must kill and be killed. Allah will reward them for it.
9:123 Fight disbelievers who are near you, and let them see the harshness in you.
This is Allah’s “last word” on tolerance and peace toward non-Muslims. If nothing else up to this point had abrogated the tolerant verses, the above verses completely wipe out every last positive verse in the Quran for non-Muslims.
The translations above are based on the Skeptics Annotated Quran. You can check the verses above (by using the verse number) to double-check their meaning in any Quran. You will find these are accurate summaries of the verses. Lots of web sites have the entire Quran available to read online. Here are a few. Just look up Sura 9 and scroll down to the verse number you’re looking for.
