Blair and Bush lie about
Islam - desperate spin attempts to conceal the truth!
a soul is like one who has killed the whole of mankind."
That's what the Koran has to say about murder, according to Blair,
Bush, tame Establishment Muslims and a horde of media commentators
in the days since the World Trade Centre massacre.
Mr. Blair, in
particular, claims to have gained a greater insight into the
"Islamic mind" by studying the Koran, hence his ability
to quote Surah 5, Ayat 32 with such assurance.
Which just shows
what a lying piece of trash he is. True, the verse in question
does contain those words, but it also contains a qualifying phrase
which totally changes its meaning.
kills a soul, not in retaliation for a soul or corruption in the
land, is like one who has killed the whole of mankind; and whoever
saves a live is like one who saves the lives of all mankind. Our
messengers came to them with the clear proof; but afterwards many
of them continued to commit excesses in the land."
So far from killing
never being allowed, it is permitted under the law of "an eye
for an eye" in the case of murder, or in the case of
"corruption in the land."
Lest it be thought
that this may only be a matter of concern for New Labour Paymaster
Generals, the very next Ayat continues:
punishment of those who fight Allah and His Messenger and go
around corrupting the land is to be killed, crucified, have their
hands and feet cut off on opposite sides, or to be banished from
the land. That is a disgrace for them in this life, and in the
life to come theirs will be a terrible punishment."
Which makes it all
too clear that while the Koran teaches its followers to respect
the sanctity of life of other good Muslims, those who "fight
Allah and his Messenger (i.e. Muhammad)" should be killed and
mutilated or banished. 5,000 individuals in the World Trade Centre
got Option Number One, many of them almost to the letter.
The most cursory
reading of the Koran makes it clear that, to a good Muslim, the
commissions and omissions of key Western governments -
particularly the USA and the UK - and of the assorted usurers and
exploiters of the poor in the World Trade centre, do indeed
qualify as anti-Allah and corrupting the land. The unfortunate
cleaners and caterers seem to be written off as collateral damage.
So what's the
truth, Tony? Either you haven't studied the Koran after all, in
which case you're lying in an attempt to curry favour with
Britain's three million angry Muslims. Or you have studied it and
know what Surah 5, Ayat 32 and 33 really preach, in which case
you're lying in an attempt to conceal from fifty million patient
Britons the deadly danger posed by Islamic fundamentalism to our
motivation is the former, he should consider the possibility that,
far from pleasing devout Muslims by misquoting their Holy Book
(which, to be fair, does also contain a number of very sensible
and fair guidelines for creating a decent society), his act in
deliberately "passing over a part of what is revealed to
you" (Surah 11, Ayat 12) may actually give serious offence.
For, as it is written in Surah 11, Ayat 18, "who is more
perverse than he who invents lies about Allah?"
Indeed! But, there
again, why should we expect a pathological liar to tell the truth
about anything, even the wording of someone else's Holy Book?
