"The Arab and Islamic Liberation Forces Were Able to Eliminate Most of the Apes and Pigs"

The Secretary-General of the Palestinian Peace and Justice Party, Dr. Muhammad Hamad, writing for Gaza-based Donia al-Watan, dreams of a day when Arab and Islamic forces are able to defeat the Jews in Palestine, killing most of them, and set up a Palestinian state over all of Palestine.  This is more evidence that no matter how much Fatah and Hamas talk about peace deals and two-state solutions, the real end goal for the Palestinians and their supporters throughout the Arab world is no less than the whole of Palestine.

The author repeatedly refers to Jews as the "sons of apes and pigs."  This is an insult given in the Qur'an to rebellious Israelities, and since then applied by generation after generation of Muslims to the Jews (and sometimes Christians as well) (see Qur'an 5.60 and 7.166).  The author predictably shows utter contempt for the lives of Jews, hoping for Iranians to use their "giant missiles" loaded with chemical and nuclear weapons in order to kill as many Jews as possible, it would seem.  Link to original Arabic.


Declaration of the Establishment of the Republic of the Palestinian Democratic Union

Dr. Muhammad Hamad, 22-Mar-2010, Donia al-Watan

Allah bless the late Arab leader, the martyr Gamal Abdel Nasser, standard-bearer of Arab nationalism, who said before his death:  “What is taken by force, is not returned except by force.”  In accordance with the words of the late leader and in response to the appeal to nationalist and Islamic duty, and with a united Arab and Islamic effort, I rush to you the good news.  I declare to you the establishment of the Republic of the Palestinian Democratic Union over all the land of historical Palestine… and I will tell you the true details of the battle which took place in order to carry out the victory and fulfill the establishment of the stable Palestinian entity.

Yes, we have accomplished the miracle.  With the creative minds and strong arms of the sons of the Arab and Islamic nation working hand in hand, and with resolute will, our proud Arab peoples were able to overthrow their obsolete agent regimes, and men assumed the leadership of our Arab peoples—men who were not discouraged by any obstacles.  Their mission was to fulfill the Arab dream, and achieve what some people thought was an illusion.  Yes, as soon as your brethren, the new leaders of the Arab peoples, assumed the reins of government, they committed themselves to the victory of your Palestinian people and the liberation of Palestine.  For it was everyone’s battle, the battle which was won by the Arab armies.  The true events of the battle, which the wicked [Zionists] launched against all fronts at once, were as follows:

First:  The Western Front:  The armed forces at sea—Egypt and Iran—shelled the coastal cities of the Zionist entity from submarines, destroyers, and other naval vessels…

Second:  The Southern Front: The Egyptian Air Force launched successive bombing raids on the Zionist positions in southern Palestine…  After [Egyptian forces] fired a salvo of rocket-propelled grenades, heavy artillery and tank shells, they were then able to progress easily and without any resistance from the cowardly Zionist enemy, who vacated all of its military and civilian posts before being destroyed.  [Comment:  This is definitely a dream…]

[…]

Sixth:  The Great Front:  The Iranian Armed Forces stationed behind Syrian and Lebanese troops and in the waters of the Mediterranean bombed the cities in the Zionists’ center with giant missiles carrying chemical and limited nuclear warheads (limited for fear of hitting the Palestinians), leading to the destruction of most Zionist facilities and shelters, and killing many of the sons of apes and pigs.

Although there are pockets of resistance here and there, the Arab and Islamic liberation forces were able to eliminate most of the apes and pigs.  Large numbers of them were arrested and are now languishing in captivity, while a small number of them were able to escape by sea, and others were able to escape with the assistance of a small number of Zionist enemy aircraft and gain asylum in European countries.

* * *

We congratulate you on your victory and the establishment of your great republic.  We congratulate you on the freedom of your people and your al-Aqsa Mosque.  We hope that everyone will communicate with us and provide us with your suggestions about the manner in which the imprisoned sons of apes and pigs should be dealt with.  I am prepared to receive your calls and answer your questions in this regard, just as soon as I wake up, Allah-willing.

Saudi: "If Someone Killed [Geert Wilders], Would His Killer Be Considered a Terrorist?"

This is a short article from Saudi paper al-Riyadh, published on 11 March.  It's just a typical article about "the racist" Geert Wilders, as he is universally called in Arabic newspapers, discussing his upcoming film Fitna 2.  This one provoked dozens of reader comments, so I thought it would be interesting to read them and translate the interesting ones.  Most of the comments that I read fell into three broad categories:  those calling for jihad, those calling on Muslims to cut off relations with Western countries that support Wilders, and those calling for Muslims to make similar films either defending Islam or attacking the Bible.  Link to original Arabic.

The Racist Wilders Continues His Campaign against Islam with the Production of “Fitna 2”

11 March 2010 -- al-Riyadh

Amsterdam:  Dutch rightwing lawmaker Geert Wilders, known for his racist comments against Islam, announced his intent to show a new film which contradicts the Islamic religion, after the next parliamentary elections scheduled for the 9th of June.

Wilders, who leads the rightist Freedom Party, said yesterday: “The film will be provocative, but we will not do it until after the elections.”

Wilders produced the first part of his film “Fitna” on the internet in March of 2008.

In his new film, Wilders intended to tackle the issue of “the massive emigration from Islamic countries” to Europe, as well as what he described as the “Islamization of Europe.”

Wilders remarked that “Fitna 2” will also deal with the issue of freedom of opinion and Islamic shari’ah.  Wilders said that he obtained professional assistance from the United States to produce the new film.

It should be noted that the first part of the film “Fitna” provoked strong protests in Islamic countries.

Comments:

1 – Nasir ibn Muhammad:

What this racist says is refuted, not by Muslims, but by the rational world as whole.  Only the filthy think otherwise…

2 – Prince of London (guest):

“his intent to show a new film which contradicts the Islamic religion”
Contradicts Islam rather than against Islam?!!  Whoever translated the news from the Dutch paper doesn’t know how to translate well…

3 – ‘Abdallah al-Kabiri:

Okay, so if someone killed him, would his killer be considered a terrorist???  Since every legal means has been attempted to put a stop to his libel and insults to us and our religion, can someone tell us if there is another solution???  There is a way:  to cut off his head.  Is that permissible [i.e. in Islam]?  I mean, there is something that has been known over 60 years; its name is Taliban, al-Qa’ida. [Comment: The '60 years' probably refers to the jihad against Israel.]  I don’t know anything about these groups, except that after we saw the occupation of Palestine, and the Muslims and children were killed, and the people were raped, then the youth blew themselves up in their faces because of their foolish policies.  I hope the West will reconsider their follies.  If not, by Allah, September 11th will seem like a piece of cake.  What is the solution for these policies, which only unite against anything and everything Muslim?

13 – Fahd (guest):

Allah will make Islam victorious over you, you dogs and descendants of pigs [Comment: Qur'anic insults usually reserved for Christians and Jews]

18 – Abu-Layl:

He has been given more publicity than he deserves.  As the cartoonist who drew the offensive images was killed, so too will this one be slain. […]

19 – ‘Arabi (guest):

What we should do is respond with opposing films, showing those who are ignorant of Islam its tolerance, and that it is the true religion.  But responding with indiscriminate attacks to its release will only increase its success, as happened with Salman Rushdie’s book.

22 – Sarah

Allah-willing, the response to him and his film will come from one of the Muslim youth through YouTube, clarifying what the Christians and Jews hide in their own scriptures, which are full of blood:  “Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women:  but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary.  Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house” (Ezekiel 9:6). [Comment: This is actually a vision Ezekiel had, in which the Lord instructed his angels to purify Jerusalem.  Not really comparable to Allah telling the Muslims, "Slay all the unbelievers wherever ye find them..."]

24 – Abu-Lawra

Racist…may Allah return their deceptiveness upon their throats and shake the earth from beneath them, and cause the heavens to rain hellfire on them, and make this be a warning to whoever follows them…  Amen, amen, amen

30 – Abajdhoz

O, that you were made to die before speaking your film

32 – Abu-Hasan Al ‘Adnan Yam (Guest)

“But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you.” [Comment: This is from Qur'an 2.216. The line which precedes it reads, "Fighting is prescribed upon you, and ye dislike it.  The commenter is making an implicit call for jihad by quoting this verse.] Allah sees us; he has miraculous power, is all-hearing, all-knowing.  Allah, cause your religion to be victorious, the religion of Islam, and strengthen he who establishes it.

36 – Abu-‘Abd al-Rahman al-Ghalayini al-Ordan [Jordan]

We call on our Islamic governments and peoples to cut off relations with the nations which offend Islam in order to remove us from the religion.  Our Lord said: “O ye who believe!  Take not for friends and protectors those who take your religion for a mockery or sport—whether among those who received the scripture before you, or among those who reject faith; but fear ye Allah, if ye have faith (indeed)” [Qur’an 5.57].

Dr. al-Kaylani: "The Ulema Have a Duty to Lead the Ummah to Jihad in the Path of Allah"

Reading Arab newspapers, one would think the evil Zionists had systematically stormed Muslim holy sites all over Palestine without provocation, kicked out all of the peaceful Muslim worshipers, and turned the sites into Jewish synagogues.  Yet even though articles like these generally begin by describing some evil Zionist plot such as this which demands a response from the innocent Muslims, when you read further down into the article the true motive for conflict with Israel is always the same:  Islam.  As Dr. Ibrahim Zayd al-Kaylani, president of the Council of Islamic Law Scholars for Jordan's largest political party, points out in this article from Jordanian online newspaper as-Sabeel, in which he implicitly calls for full-scale war against Israel, Islam obligates all Muslims to go to war with Israel.  Link to the original Arabic.
Dr. al-Kaylani: The Ulema Have a Duty to Lead the Ummah to Jihad in the Path of Allah to Defend the Holy Sites

Wa’il al-Butayri, as-Sabeel, 17 Mar 2010

Events taking place currently in al-Quds [Jerusalem], namely the aggression against the holy sites and the ensuing clashes between Palestinians and Zionists, raise questions about what Islamic law requires of Muslims and their governments regarding al-Quds [Jerusalem] and the captive al-Aqsa Mosque. People’s opinions and attitudes on the subject vary.

Citizen Ra’fat Hamid, 37, thinks that victory on the al-Aqsa Mosque must be achieved by actions rather than words. Regarding the necessary reaction from governments towards this unjust aggression against Muslim holy sites, he said: “Relations with the Zionist enemy should be severed, and its ambassadors thrown out. [Arab and Muslim] governments should work to free the al-Aqsa Mosque, and give their peoples complete freedom to liberate the people in Palestine.”

He added that the Muslim public should understand the truth about the al-Aqsa Mosque issue, and know its place in the Qur’an and sunnah, and teach those who don’t know this, rather than “[merely] support every activity and action connected to this.”

From Hamid’s point of view, the Synagogue of the Ruins which the Jews built next to the al-Aqsa Mosque, is an indicator of “Muslim neglect” of their holy sites. He asked rhetorically, “How can four years pass with the Jews building this synagogue, and no one knows about it until after it opens?! Where are the Muslims? Where are the Islamic movements? Why don’t the ulema call for jihad in the path of Allah?!

But citizen Kamal ‘Abdallah, 40, does not put faith in the peoples’ movements, for “No marches or demonstrations are going to change anything.” The only solution, in his view, is to “change the Arab and Islamic governments, and replace them with governments that will adopt the choice of the people to support the resistance and the jihad.”

He asked, “Gaza has been blockaded for more than 1,000 days by an Arab government… Can we expect such countries to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque?”

Regarding the Islamic movements and their role in liberating the al-Aqsa Mosque, ‘Abadallah said, “The treatment prescribed by the Islamic movements is superficial, and does not rise to the level of the challenge.” From his point of view, it is necessary to “devise more efficient and powerful means.”

The president of the Council of Islamic Law Scholars in the Islamic Labor Front Party, Dr. Ibrahim Zayd al-Kaylani, believes that the duty of [Islamic and Arab] governments in the face of what is occurring in al-Quds [Jerusalem] is to “declare jihad to liberate al-Aqsa and Palestine, and in that vein they should revive the Arab mutual defense pacts.” [Comment: Mutual defense pacts between Arab governments preceded both the ’67 and ’73 wars against Israel. This is an implicit call for full-scale war against Israel.]

He added in his statement to as-Sabeel: “Israeli embassies should be closed, the ambassadors of the Zionist enemy should be thrown out, and the normalization of relations [with Israel] should be prohibited. Normalizing relations with the enemy who is violating the sanctity of the blessed al-Aqsa Mosque is among the grossest of sins.”

He pointed to what he termed the “great humiliation,” which he explained as, “Keeping the arms of the Arab and Islamic armies idle, at a time when the children of al-Quds [Jerusalem] face the weapons of the Jews bare-chested, in order to defend the blessed al-Aqsa.”

Al-Kaylani condemned Arab governments, saying: “They work to guard the security of Israel, and tame their peoples, and prohibit their resistance, and try in court those who voluntarily gather for Gaza.” He described this as one of the “grossest sins,” [especially] when the requirement in Islam is to “defend the religion and the holy sites, not to defend Israel.” […]

Clerics and Islamic Movements

* * *

Concerning the duty of the ulema [Islamic clerics] and Islamic movements towards al-Quds [Jerusalem] and the al-Aqsa Mosque, Dr. al-Kaylani said: “Their duty is to lead the ummah to jihad in the path of Allah, and to proclaim the rulings of Islam, in order to pressure the public into fulfilling their duty to protect and preserve the holy sites.”

* * *

The Ordinary Muslim

Concerning the ordinary Muslim, al-Kaylani resolved that, “Jihad has become obligatory for all Muslims.” Therefore, “every Muslim should feel it his duty to offer money, weapons, and strength to support the resistance fighters in Palestine, and combat the American-Israeli project.” He confirmed that “the children of al-Quds [Jerusalem], who are concerned about the defense of the al-Aqsa Mosque, rise up and protest, both old and young, men and women.” He pointed to the word of the Most High, which says, “O ye who believe! What is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the path of Allah [fi sabil Allah, i.e. jihad], ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the hereafter” [Qur’an 9.38]. […]

The Muslim Woman

In relation to the duty of the Muslim woman towards the al-Aqsa Mosque, al-Kaylani said, “The Muslim woman is the sister of the Muslim man in defending the religion of the ummah. Allah the Most High said, ‘The believers, men and women, are protectors, one of another: they enjoin what is just, and forbid what is evil…’” [Qur’an 9.71]. […]

Moheet: "The Purpose of Jihad Is to Establish the Word of Allah"

This is an article from online Arabic magazine Moheet, which has offices in Egypt and the UAE. Here the author extols the virtues of jihad, describing it as the sixth pillar of Islam, and showing through the Qur'an and hadith why it is necessary for Muslims to wage jihad, as in violent war, against the infidels in order to establish the word of Allah. Link to original Arabic.

Why It Is Considered Our Sixth Pillar of Islam – Jihad Is Ordained to Establish the Word of Allah 
Moheet – Iman al-Khashab, 13 Mar 2010 
Jihad in the path of Allah is a mainstay of the religion and a great religious duty, as the Prophet (PBUH) said:  “The most important thing is Islam, and it is supported by prayer, and its apex is jihad in the path of Allah.”  Allah has commanded us in many verses (of the Qur’an), and urged us, as has also our Prophet (PBUH), regarding the issue of jihad.  The Prophet desired it himself, and urged (others) to it.  He declared its virtues so often that some scholars consider it the sixth pillar of Islam, due to its importance, which is attested by how often it appears in the Qur’an and hadith. 
Jihad is an ancient religious duty, for Moses (PBUH), who struggled (jahada) to lead the children of Israel (out of Egypt), said to his people:  “O my people! Enter the holy land which Allah hath assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously, for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin” (Qur’an 5.21). That is what happened to them, and Allah punished them.  But in the end, after the death of Moses (PBUH), they waged jihad and conquered the holy house (Jerusalem), entering it through jihad in the path of Allah. 
* * * 
[Dr. Jamal al-Marakobi] added:  “After that, Allah mandated jihad, rather than widespread destruction, as a punishment for the infidels who refused to worship Allah Almighty and disdained he who had created them.  For jihad was the tradition (sunnah) of the prophets, from the first centuries until the coming of our prophet Muhammad (PBUH).  For Muhammad went out with this law, which is jihad in the path of Allah, to establish the word of Allah and do away with shirk (polytheism) and infidelity.  Allah said:  “Fight them on until there is no sedition (fitna), and the religion is wholly Allah’s, but if they cease, let there be no hostility, except to those who practice oppression” (Qur’an 2.193).  This is the wisdom behind waging jihad, in order that Allah alone be worshipped, as (the Prophet) (PBUH) said:  “I have been sent with the sword to ensure Allah is worshipped.” 
Dr. al-Marakobi said:  “Allah obligated the ummah (Islamic nation) to jihad in the path of Allah, but it was ordained in stages.  For in the days in which the Prophet (PBUH) and the Muslims were in Mecca, they were forbidden from waging jihad, and were obliged instead to (peacefully) propagate Islam.  The Prophet (PBUH) was in Mecca for thirteen years after receiving the mission to call the people to Allah Almighty, and was not commanded to fight, but was forbidden from it, despite what he and his companions suffered at the hands of the infidels. 
They were forbidden from jihad during this period because they did not have sufficient strength, and their enemy was stronger than they were.  If they had fought at that time, their enemy would have overpowered them.   When the Prophet (PBUH) emigrated to Medina, and found the Ansar (i.e. supporters; name given to Muslims from Medina), Allah authorized jihad for them, but it was not a commandment, as Allah Almighty said:  “To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight), because they are wronged—and verily, Allah is Most Powerful for their aid” (Qur’an 22.39).  After that, they were commanded to fight those who fought against them, but still refrain from fighting those who did not fight against them, as the Almighty said:  “Fight in the path of Allah those who fight you, but do not be the aggressors, for Allah loveth not aggressors” (Qur’an 2.190). 
The Muslims were initially commanded to fight only those who fought against them.  However, later they were commanded to fight not only those who fought against them but also those who did not, in order to establish the word of Allah.  This was a requirement so long as the Muslims had sufficient power, were prepared, and had a state ruled by the Prophet of Allah (PBUH).  The purpose of jihad is not simply to gain authority, or expand the kingdom, or get money, or kill people.  The purpose of jihad is to establish the word of Allah.  For if the infidels accept the call of Islam and return to their Creator, they will not be attacked.  But if they rebel they must be fought so that their wickedness and infidelity may cease, and they may receive their punishment, although their punishment with Allah will be so much more severe and horrible in the fire of hell, for they are infidels and polytheists, who despise the worship of Almighty Allah. 
Dr. al-Marakobi clarified:  “When the jihad was stopped, the wickedness of the infidels increased, and they fought against Islam and the Muslims, and prevented them from entering Islam.  This is also what the infidels are doing today, as you can hear, read, and see the killing, displacement, and destruction of Muslims throughout all the earth.  They also persist in describing Islam as terrorist, savage, and so on.  This is what the infidels do when Muslims refuse to fight against them, for they are those who heap persecutions upon the Muslims. 
It is wise to wage jihad to establish the word of Almighty Allah, but he who fights for another purpose is not in the path of Allah.  He who fights in the path of Allah becomes a martyr if killed, and if he is not killed he is paid and rewarded, as the Almighty said:  “Think not of those who are killed in the path of Allah as dead, for they are alive with the Lord.  They are provided for, and rejoice in what Allah has given them of his bounty, and that they are no longer pursued by those who had pursued them.  They have no fear or sadness, but rejoice in the grace and virtue of Allah, for Allah doth not fail to reward the believers.”

IslamOnline.net: "It Is Permissible for Us to Fight and Kill All Israeli Jews"

IslamOnline.net is one of the top two most popular Islamic websites on the internet.  It is owned by the "esteemed" Shaykh Yousuf al-Qaradawi, who appears on the al-Jazeera show Shari'ah and Life.  The interesting thing about this website is it has English and Arabic sites, but they don't mirror each other.  The Arabic content is completely independent of the English content and, as you might imagine, the Arabic content appears to be more openly Islamic, i.e. intolerant and violent.  The following is from the Q&A section of the website, where Muslims ask whether certain things are permissible in Islam, and eminent Islamic shaykhs answer them with their legal opinions (fatwas).

Here a Palestinian Muslim asks whether it is permissible to conduct suicide bombings against Jews.  Several shaykhs respond, all in the affirmative, demonstrating why it is not only permissible but an Islamic duty to fight against and kill all Jews living in Israel.  What I found most chilling was Shaykh Mulawi's explanation of why Muslims shouldn't kill Jews outside of Israel--he reasoned that this could be bad for Muslims, as it might bring adverse reactions from the Jews' host countries.  There is no humanity here, no general concern for the sanctity of non-Muslim human life--the only concern is the effect that killing those Jews would have on Islam and Muslims.  Link to original Arabic.

Name:  Sayf – Palestine
Title:  Killing Jewish civilians in martyrdom operations in Palestine
Question:  Is it permissible to kill civilians in Israel through martyrdom operations which are carried out by Palestinians in defense of their land?
Date:  23 Jan 2002
Mufti:  Shaykh Faysal Mulawi

Answer:

Praise Allah, and peace be upon the Prophet of Allah.

The esteemed Shaykh, counselor Faysal Mulawi, Vice President of the European Council of Research and Issuing Fatwas:

There is no established war between us as Muslims and all Jews, just for their sake of being Jews.  The established war is confined to only between us as Muslims and the Jews living inside the occupied territory (i.e. Israel), to which they came from every corner of the earth to take control of it unjustly and with hostility.  They evicted its previous inhabitants and started the war against us in order to fulfill their unjust imperialistic design.

Wherefore, it is our undisputed right to combat those who attack us.   But if there is a Jewish man living in any other country of the world who has not answered the Zionist call to emigrate to occupied Palestine and does not enjoy Israeli citizenship, we are not required to kill him or combat him.  This is especially so since this could lead to breaking the agreements between us and the country in which the man lives and enjoys citizenship.  These agreements are sponsored by the United Nations and permit Muslims to travel to every nation of the world to fulfill the duty to proclaim da’wa (Muslim missionary call), or to engage in trade, or to study, or for any other reason.  Breaking such agreements in order to kill a non-Israeli Jewish man would lead to substantial damage to Islam and Muslims.

But the Jews living inside the occupied territory and those who carry Israeli citizenship are all participants in the aggression against us, and it is our right to combat all of them.  However, current global norms confine the fighting to military personnel and not civilians.

When Israel commits to this (i.e. to refrain from combating civilians), it will be our duty to commit to it as well in order to save old people, children, and women from the killing.  But currently Israel has not committed to this, and continues, time and time again, to attack children, women, old people, and civilians.  We have witnessed this in recent incidents where the Jews opened fire on unarmed youth and children in cold blood, directly killing them by shooting them in the head or upper parts of the body.  We had seen it before in what occurred in the city of Qana in Lebanon, where hundreds took refuge in the United Nations building so as not to be killed, only to find that Israel did not hesitate to bomb that building and kill more than a hundred children, old people, and women.

Before this reality we say that reciprocity is legitimate, for Allah says:  “And if ye do catch them out, catch them out no worse than they catch you out” (Qur’an 16.126).  Thus it follows that it is permissible for us to fight against and kill all Israeli Jews.  Until the Zionists refrain from killing our civilian children, women, and old people, we may respond in kind.

Dr. Nazar ‘Abd-al-Qadir Ryan, associate professor of modern science at the University of Gaza, said:
We know the Jews well; their men are soldiers, their women are soldiers, and their children are trained from infancy toward militancy and hatred of Arabs, Muslims, and Muhammad (PBUH), and they consider every Muslim a Muhammad (PBUH).

It is known that the Prophet (PBUH) forbade the killing of women, and said when he saw a woman slain:  “This was not to be killed.” […]

* * *

the Prophet (PBUH) was killed by a Jewish woman from the Bani Qurayzah (a Jewish tribe from Medina).  Since she was killed by a Muslim man, it became a rule that it was permissible to kill all the killers among the Jewish women in our country of Palestine, without hesitation.

Dr. Jalal Yousuf al-Sharqi, a scholar from Al-Azhar, said:

Every Jew in Palestine, whether man or woman, young or old, military or civilian...  All of them are considered combatants and rapists of the land of Islam… [...]

Jordanian newspaper: "The Holocaust is a Jewish Myth, Legend, and Lie"

Dr. Salah al-Khalidi of Jordanian online newspaper as-Sabeel denies the Holocaust, and blames the Jews and UNESCO for working to "brainwash" everybody, including Arabs, into believing it.  Of course to accept Dr. al-Khalidi's claims, you have to disbelieve in the overwhelming abundance of evidence for the Holocaust.  But I guess this isn't so hard to do when the Arab media you're subjected to day-in, day-out puts out quality pieces like this, and when you adhere to a religion that makes antisemitism a point of doctrine.  Link to original Arabic.
The Holocaust in Our Curriculum 
Dr. Salah al-Khalidi 
as-Sabeel, 26 Feb 2010
The Jews are experts at exercising power over others by invading their thought, culture, and education, and controlling their views and thoughts.  Thus the Jews convert others into their supporters by subjecting them to their lies.  They succeed greatly in this Satanic mission because of the ignorance of the Gentiles and the ability of the Jews to plant their agents of thought, culture, media, politics, government, finance, and art, and convert them into soldiers.  These soldiers then undertake to "normalize" every Gentile and make them slaves, followers of the Jews.  Everyone who takes an honest look at the conditions of the modern world and the Jews' dealings in it realizes this truth.  Among the clearest examples of this is the Holocaust.
The Jews succeeded in converting the Holocaust, a malignant term, into dogma.  Every man throughout all the world must have faith in and profess this creed, for woe unto he who denies or doubts it.
The meaning of this Jewish creed is thus:  the Jews were slaughtered in Nazi prisons in the days of the second world war, in which they claimed that Hitler and his regime executed and burned more than 5 million Jews in gas ovens in Germany and elsewhere!!  The Jews blackmailed Germany, calling for her to pay financially for the crimes of the Nazis and recompense the Jews for the sacrifices of the Holocaust.  They took billions upon billions from Germany and the rest of Europe, and still continue to blackmail and milk the Europeans!!
If any Western thinkers attempt to doubt the numbers of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they are branded anti-semites who must be tried, convicted, and punished, as happened with Jarudi.
The Jewish devils direct UNESCO, the international cultural organization under the umbrella of the United Nations, exploiting the stupid Gentiles and using them to issue international resolutions which require every nation in the world, including those in our Arab and Islamic world, to consider the Holocaust a worldwide tragedy.  UNESCO has obligated every nation in the world to teach its people "the history of the suffering of the Jews in the Nazi Holocaust"!  Through different means they have defined, directed, and taught this doctrine in various educational programs, media foundations, and cultural organizations.  Every center and foundation in every nation of the world is required to imprint this definition of the suffering of the Jews in the prefaces of their consitutions and convince their people to believe in the same.
* * *
The executive council relied on a number of world and Arab capitals, with our capital Amman at the forefront, to be a wide arena for executing the UNESCO resolution.  Seminars, lectures, and cultural events will be held in the name of UNESCO in five languages, including Arabic, calling for our Jordanian people to believe in the Holocaust, and to brainwash the Arabs and lead them to believe in this Jewish creed!!
Even more remarkable is that the Jewish devils placed an Arabic name on this campaign of cultural normalization, naming it "the 'Ala'-al-Din (Aladdin) Project."  They took this name from a popular myth in Arab folklore, which tells of a "magical lamp of Aladdin" which, when opened by a boy in a certain way, released a huge giant who said:  "Your wish is my command; your servant is in your hands."
This Satanic Jewish plan is alarming, as it strives to exploit United Nations foundations, principally UNESCO, and employ them to subjugate Arabs and Muslims and force them into cultural and thought normalization.  The authorities in Arab and Muslim countries don't possess any power except to execute the Aladdin Project on the pretext of executing the resolutions of the United Nations and its foundations, and transform the Jewish Holocaust into a vanguard for introducing Jewish concerns, actions, and plans.
The Holocaust will enter into the training and education curriculum in our schools, colleges, and universities; in our centers of guidance, thought, and planning; in our scientific, literary, and cultural activities; and in our seminars, lectures, newspapers, magazines, novels, films, and stories.  Jewish cultural normalization will enter into every foundation, center, school and university, even into every house and home!! ... All of this and the Holocaust is a Jewish myth, legend, and lie.  Even if it were true, it would not expunge the true crimes of the Jews and their slaughter of our people in Dayr Yasin in Palestine, in Bahr-al-Baqar in Egypt, in Sabra and Shatila (Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon), in Qana in Lebanon, and so on.  But the Holocaust of the people of Gaza, the thousands of martyrs and wounded in the Jewish war on Gaza, and all the crimes of the Jews against our people in Gaza are remembered by no one!  Then when the Jewish conscience was awakened by the Goldstein report, the Jews ordered Arab leaders to withdraw that report!!

Jordanian newspaper: "How Can (the Jews), Being Unclean, Claim Possession of His Mosque, to Defile It with Their Stench and Their Filthy Deeds?!"

Dr. 'Ali al-'Atoum, writing for the online Jordanian newspaper as-Sabeel on 2 March, excoriates the Jews for naming the Bilal ibn Rabah and al-Ibrahimi Mosques as part of their Jewish cultural heritage, and devotes several paragraphs of his essay to explaining how wicked and filthy the Jews have been and continue to be.  Quite often we will hear Muslims claim to be anti-Zionist but not anti-Jewish.  However, in this essay the author shows that Islam is intrinsically anti-semitic, regardless of what 'the Zionists' do.

The author also makes clear that these holy sites are "purely an Islamic inheritance, set apart by the Prophet...as an exclusive gift."  This same claim has been made regarding Jerusalem, which was named an Islamic waqf, or endowment, by the caliph 'Umar ibn al-Khattab.  Really, Muslims consider all of Palestine to be exclusively Muslim property, which is why regardless of what the Jews do or don't do, the Muslims will continue to fight them until they gain control of the whole of it.  Link to the original Arabic
The Jews and Moral Impudence
Dr. ‘Ali al-‘Atoum
As-Sabeel, 2 Mar 2010
Impudence means rudeness, lack of civility and shame, disregard for that which is dignified, and arrogance towards holy sites.  These are the morals for which the Jews have been known in the two worlds, which have taken root in them throughout their long history.  … They accused the prophets and those sent from the prophets of lowliness and lack of manhood, and they were accustomed to killing them and doing away with them, with indifference for that which was holy…
To them, they are the chosen people of God—he chose them for himself, and would not punish them no matter what crimes they committed.  But if necessary, (they would be punished for only) a few days, for they considered themselves the favored people, even that God had not created other people except to serve them.  They considered themselves the masters and all others their servants.  For this reason they deemed it permissible to oppress others with bloodshed, or rob their property, or violate their holy sites, without feeling a stinging in their conscience.  For, in their belief, they alone own that which is holy.  Yea, these are their morals, from which they will never be separated unless obligated by force--for their wickedness is sufficient that I should say this--and every day we hear of their insults towards our holy sites in Palestine.  They are those who for more than 90 years have occupied our land unjustly and with hostility.  But they weren't satisfied with that, and even have the audacity to trample on our rights and steal our possessions.  Thus for days they have claimed possession of the Ibrahim Mosque in Khalil (Hebron), and the Bilal ibn Rabah Mosque in Bethlehem, and appropriated them into their Jewish heritage, arguing that they are the sole owners.  This is of course not true, but is just one in a series of plans for Judaizing (making Jewish) everything in Palestine, including Arab and Islamic landmarks.
* * *
it is the Jewish arrogance and Zionist impudence, and treacherous audacity towards their opponents that drives them to persist in falsehood.  But the Jews are not from the true religion, nor linked to Abraham and his children in anything.  Allah in his noble book called them kuffar (infidels), saying: "Cursed are those who disbelieved from the children of Israel on the tongue of David and 'Isa (Jesus) son of Mary."  He said regarding their relationship to Abraham: "Abraham was not a Jew nor a Christian, but he was an upright Muslim, and joined not gods with Allah" [Qur’an 3.67].  The text of the book of Allah has decreed that the closest to Abraham and his heritage are the Muslims and their prophet, for thus it says:  "The closest in kin to Abraham are those who follow him, as are also this Prophet, and those who believe, and Allah is the protector of those who have faith” [Qur’an 3.68].
For these holy places in the city of Khalil al-Rahman and the surrounding area are purely an Islamic inheritance, set apart by the Prophet more than 1,400 years ago for the owner of Galilee Abu Raqiya Tamim ibn Ausa al-Dari and his companions, and for those that come after them until the day of resurrection, as an exclusive gift.
Now concerning the Bilal ibn Rabah Mosque in Bethlehem, may Allah be pleased with it, which they [the Jews] call the Tomb of Rachel (the wife of Jacob)--what an evil claim (they make).  Bilal, who was from the Levant, was the muezzin (i.e. the one who makes the call to prayer) of the Prophet.  His name, body, voice, and faith increased, as did his purity and cleanliness.  How can they, being unclean, claim possession of his mosque, to defile it with their stench and their filthy deeds?!  While they are attacking our holy sites and insulting our places of worship, where are the Muslims, who follow the commandments of their prophet and his successors and followers, and who respect the religions and minarets of others, even during war?!
Yea, they (i.e. the Jews) are as the idolaters of Quraysh, who claimed that they were the only ones eligible to enter the al-Haram Mosque, even though they did not worship anything in truth.  Allah attested: "Their prayer at the House (of Allah) is nothing but whistling and clapping of hands: (Its only answer can be), "Taste ye the penalty because ye blasphemed."  They worship the whistle and the applause…  But either the Arabs and Muslims rise up to defend their rights before the backbone of the kufr and deceipt of the Jews who have taken these reprehensible actions and made those false claims, which are but a preface to taking control of the al-Aqsa Mosque itself, or--Allah forbid--there will be nothing but eternal shame and humiliation…

Gaza newspaper: "Hoardes of Freemasons and Atheists Have Come to... Remove the Muslim Woman from the Yoke of Religion"

In this article from Gaza-based al-Watan Voice, Dr. al-Shammari chides Muslim women for imitating Western women in desiring personal freedom, and also blasts their immodesty for, among other things, wearing pants and make-up in public.  How dare they.  Link to original Arabic.
Unto You, O Muslim Woman

Dr. Muhammad al-Shammari

al-Watan Voice, 2 Mar 2010

Many of the shortcomings and transgressions which the companions of the call and of righteousness (i.e. Muslims) should fight against have spread through our society. This needs to be addressed before it festers and becomes commonplace, which will make it harder to treat afterwards.

To get straight to the point, I direct this message to all Muslim women. I call on each Muslim woman to read these words and ponder them well, if she fears for herself, her family, her relatives, and her religion, that she may avoid falling into the pitfalls of immorality, obscenity, and sin. And that she may build up a blessed family, far from the temptations of Satan and his collaborators, being an excellent example of Islam and its morals. That thus we may be a society which is ruled by modesty, self-respect, and virtue.

I say to the Muslim woman: If you desire to please Allah and look forward to a prosperous and stable future for yourself and your family, you must pay attention first to what has been sewn against our Islamic religion because of you. For hoardes of freemasons and atheists have come to promote all that which corrupts their minds to remove the Muslim woman from the yoke of religion and renounce its judgments with her deeds, words, and behavior.

Quite unfortunately the atheists and their purpose reverberate in the ears of some of our girls, and they have begun to subject the judgments of our Islamic religion to what they hear from others. Thus we see many of them have screamed, trying to imitate women of the West in their dress, actions, speech, and all their doings. They reason that individual liberty is guaranteed to them, and none can prohibit it, as long as there is someone who tosses roses in the path of her liberation and advancement.

Know, O Muslim woman, that being carried away after that which is promoting the call of liberation is considered imitating them (i.e. the infidels). We Muslims were commanded not to imitate a people that doesn’t judge after the revelation of Allah, for the prophet of Allah forbade us from imitating such people, saying: “He who imitates a people is of them” (Sunan Abu Dawud, hadith no. 4031).

We don’t want to lay all of the blame on the woman in our society, for all of the reproach and blame placed on her also belongs to all those who assist her in her path of liberation and escape from our original Arab traditions and Islamic doctrine…

* * *

Behold our lord, the prophet of Allah, said that the fitna (sedition) of women was the greatest affliction the society would encounter: “I have left behind me no greater fitna for men than (the fitna of) women” (Sahih al-Bukhari, 5/1959, hadith no. 4808).

* * *

…we have begun to see many girls…in the past few decades wear what is considered distasteful for men to wear, which is pants. Some clerics have said that it is not permissible men to wear pants, for it is considered the dress of Jews and Christians from whom we are commanded to differ. This is referring to men, so then what if women wear them?

My Muslim sister, it is your duty to wear loose clothes that don’t describe and don’t reveal. Also to refrain from wearing pants, unless there is something covering them so that no part of them is showing, and that what is over them is loose and not tight nor revealing. This so that you are not one of whom the prophet of Allah spoke: “I will not be a witness for two types of people who are destined for the Fire: people with whips like the tails of cows, who beat the people, and women who, although clothed, are yet naked, seducing and being seduced, their hair styled like the tilted humps of camels. These will not enter the Garden nor will its fragrance even reach them, although its fragrance reaches a very great distance.” ...

Egyptian Sheikh: "Muslims Have Fewer Rights than Christians"

This is from Egyptian online magazine al-Youm al-Sabi'u (The Seventh Day), written on 9 February.  In the article, high-ranking Egyptian Islamic Sheikh Khalid al-Jundi blasts Shi'ites and Baha'is, and rejects all relations with Israel--the usual stuff you'd expect from a Muslim Sheikh speaking freely in Arabic to his own.  What really made me laugh though was his comment about Christians, saying that they have more rights than Muslims, because Muslims don't even have room to worship in their mosques and are spilling out into the streets.  The brilliant al-Jundi observes, "Look, you never see Christians praying outside their churches!"  Of course you don't, that's because your Muslim buddies beat them up and burn down their churches, causing them to live in fear!  Unbelievable... (link to Arabic)
Khalid al-Jundi:  "Whoever Does Not Consider the Baha'is Infidels Must Himself Be an Infidel"
Loay 'Ali, 9 February 2010, al-Youm
Sheikh Khalid al-Jundi, member of the High Council of Islamic Affairs and general director of the television station al-Azhari, launched a sharp attack against Shi'ites, confirming that he will not permit the presence of Shi'ites in Egypt.  This is because of their arrogance towards the family and companions of the Prophet of Allah, indicating that Shi'ism is a form of hypocrisy.
Regarding his opinion of Baha'is, the Sheikh clarified that the Baha'is are a form of corruption, for they are a people which has denied the prayers and the fasting of the Qur'an.  He also added that whoever does not consider the Baha'is infidels must himself be an infidel.
Regarding the normalization of relations with Israel, he confirmed during a religious forum at a press syndicate last night that he rejects every form of normalization with the Zionist entity and especially Israel, adding that it is unacceptable and forbidden under shari'ah law to export natural gas to Israel.
He reiterated that he is opposed to the export of natural gas to Israel in form and in type, for Israel is a hostile and Zionist state.  Cooperation with Jews and not Zionists is permissible but for the marriage between them.  For they (Jews) are closer to Muslims in some things than they are to Christians.  The Jews have a civilization and a culture which at one time played a major role in the development of the Egyptian economy.

Al-Jundi also called for equality between Muslims and Christians, arguing that Muslims have fewer rights than Christians, and even do not have the right to worship like Christians.  He called for the building of more mosques, for those which have been built are not enough.  Due to the narrowness of the mosques, many Muslims have had to sprawl out in the streets in order to pray.  He pointed out that "we don't see any Copts praying outside of their churches."
Al-Jundi expressed his displeasure at the reaction of the Church towards the defrocked, speaking of Zakariya Butrus, and his anger at the Church for not explicitly declaring its position.  He was also saddened by the reaction of the Pope in his discussion with reporter 'Amru Adib and his failure to respond to Adib's question regarding his position on Zakariya Butrus. He emphasized that Zakariya Butrus is an expression of abuse, indicating that he had asked the defrocked for a debate, but he is afraid.
