I love how I bring out the most cowardly and craven among liberal Jewish and Christian "leadership." How eager these knaves are to do the bidding of annihilationists and Jew-haters.
Colorado Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders stood together in Denver's main mosque Monday and launched a "Love Thy Neighbor" campaign — starting with ads on RTD buses. They said the ad they unveiled — at a time on the calendar devoted to love and understanding....(Denver Post)
How silly. All decent and rational human beings love love. These self-righteous nudniks are standing with those who are oppressing and subjugating their brothers and sisters. They will answer to a higher authority. Why aren't these voices of love speaking out against the vile Islamic Jew-hatred that inspires the war against the tiny Jewish state? Why aren't these voices of love speaking out against the systematic extermination of Christians in Muslim lands? Why aren't these voices of love condemning the slaughter of Buddhists in Thailand? Hindus in Pakistan?No, instead they provide cover for the most brutal and extreme ideology on the face of the earth, and further obfuscate the most lethal threat the free world faces.
"Love thy neighbor." Gotta love it. There is no golden rule in Islam, clowns. This moral equivocation completely ignores the facts on the ground. Jews and Christians are simply not murdering people and justifying the murders by quoting their Scriptures. And the Qur'an verse quoted in their ad is not a general recommendation of forgiveness. According to the revered and renowned Qur'an commentator Ibn Kathir, this verse "was revealed concerning As-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, when he swore that he would not help Mistah bin Uthathah after he said what he said about Aishah."
Mistah had accused Aishah of adultery, and Muhammad was anxious to protect his favorite nine-year-old wife. Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, Aisha's father, had said: "By Allah, I will never give anything (in charity) to Mistah, after what he has said about Aisha." But then Muhammad gave the "revelation" of Qur'an 24:22. Hearing it, Abu Bakr said, ''Yes, by Allah, I like that Allah should forgive me.'' He then resumed giving Mistah the aid he used to give him (Bukhari 8.670)
So does Qur'an 24:22 mean that Muslims should be forgiving and kind toward non-Muslims? No: "Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves" (Qur'an 48:29).
The violence in the Bible is descriptive, while the Qur'an's violence is prescriptive. The fantasy these quislings are advancing is at odds with reality and the rivers of blood shed in the cause of Islam. Never do we see Jews slaughtering in the name of HaShem or Christians in the name of Jesus Christ.
"Our country is in the midst of a lot of divisions," Temple Emanuel Senior Rabbi Joe Black said. "Hatred is only going to further violence and the breakdown of society."
"Here's How Rabbis And Priests Are Fighting Extreme Anti-Muslim Ads" Business Insider, December 27, 2012
Christian, Jewish, and Muslim leaders gathered in Colorado on Monday to launch an official counter movement against the recent trend of plastering extreme Islamaphobic ads — calling Muslims "savages" and showing pictures of the burning World Trade towers — on buses and subway stations.
The religious coalition created the "Love Thy Neighbor" campaign. Ten ads focusing on messages of love and brotherhood are set to replace anti-Muslim ads on buses.
Here's a picture of the ad:
These ads, however, are slated to appear only in Denver. The American Freedom Defense Initiative just spent $10,000-plus on a new campaign that will place these ads across NYC subway stations, making twice as many more copies than it did in previous campaigns, due to graffiti.
See the new ads below:
Pamela Geller, executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, defended her posters against protesters with the statement, "I refuse to abridge my free speech so as to appease savages."Read more: the rest here.
