Brigitte Gabriel gave a speech at Duke University detailing the atrocities, crimes against humanity, and depravity of contemporary Islam (see: : http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/gabriel.asp). Islam today has no kindness nor love for the welfare of mortals on this planet, but like the tyrants of ancient Arabia is determined to force all people to bow before their tribal agricultural god Allah who was created from myths of pre-Bedouin nomads. As Ms. Gabriel detailed: “Under the banner of Islam ‘la, ilaha illa Allah muhammad rasoulu Allah” (none is god except Allah, Muhammad is the messenger of Allah) “devout Muslims” murdered Jewish children in Israel, massacred Christians in Lebanon, killed Copts in Egypt, Assyrians in Syria, Hindus in India, and expelled almost 900,000 Jews living for generations on “Muslim lands.” The absurd madness of Islam continues, with Muslims demanding that the United Nations rule against any “defamation” of their prophet or their god, while saying little about the pantheon of deities worshipped by other faiths, and blasting anyone who dares question the existence of any or all gods.
The rigid censorship of Islam, far worse than anything in Stalinist Russia or Hitler’s Third Reich has had the crassness to demand that Facebook remove Islam-critical pages (such as “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day”) . Fundamentalist Muslims are demanding that Facebook adds a term that “legalizes disrespecting Islamic religious symbols and disable any Facebook “Page, Group, or Event that shows direct or indirect disrespect towards Islamic religious symbols.” See: http://tinyurl.com/2bywnvu
Muslims today, especially in the USA, Canada, and most of all the UK, are demanding that all governments allow the tribal laws of Sharia to be equal to existing western laws and constitutions, and registering protests when the governments of Belgium, France, Switzerland and other democratic nations ban the degrading garb of the burqa (برقع) from being worn in public–a full-body covering that can conceal bombs and armaments of jihadists (some of those committing suicide being men dressed in the burqa, contrary to the Qur’an [Koran] which originally and primarily reserved for the women of Afghanistan where it is known as the chadri, but it was seldom used in Afghanistan–with little appearance before the Taliban (Pashto: طالبان [it comes from the Arabic طالب] an extremist Sunni political movement based on religion; the word translates as “students” but has been restricted to seminarians or theological students) took control and destroyed Afghani society; it infected Pakistan in 1998 and has been growing there with the financial aid of the Saudi royal family and Muslims in the USA). While Muslims claim that the burqa is Islamic in origin, the truth is opposite that lie, for it had been worn by Persian (and some Arab) women centuries before, as we find in the writings of the Roman African Christian Tertullian (Chapter 17 of The Veiling of Virgins) in 200 CE, when he lavished praise on the modesty of those “pagan women of Arabia … who not only cover their head, but their whole face … preferring to enjoy half the light with one eye rather than prostituting their entire face (the Latin reads: Iudicabunt nos Arabiae ethnicae feminae ethnicae quae non caput, sed faciem quoque ita totam tegunt, ut oculo liberato contentae sint dimidiam frui lucem quam totam faciem prostituere)”. But Tertulliam was not unique in recognizing the garment as hiding the appearance of women, for Strabo, writing in the first century CE, in his Georgraphia (11.13.9-10) acknowledges that it was a common historic practice of Persian women. If contemporary 21st century Muslims had any honesty and knowledge of their own history and books, they would note that the hadith (collected traditions of the life of Muhammad) required that both men and women are required to dress and behave modestly in public and wear the hijab.
Dr. Wafa Sultan, a Syrian-born American psychiatrist, courageously attacked the Islamic mind-destruction on al-Jazeera television in 2006. Having left the Islamic faith (an “apostate”), she like all others who have broken the chain of Islam, are threatened with execution by “devout followers of the prophet Muhammad”. Rightfully, Wafa Sultan noted that sharia law accepts wife beatings, “honor killings” (where any member of the family or the entire family has the “right” to kill any other family member who does not marry according to the wishes of the family or who marries an apostate or “nonbeliever”), child marriages (as young as five since Muhammad married a mere child under the “legal” age of seven), public beheadings (common in Saudi Arabia), stonings and hangings, limb amputations, and forced “covering up” of women and numerous torture tactics that would impress even University of California law professor John Yoo who glorified and sanctified the atrocities at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. The author of the book A God Who Hates: The Courageous Woman Who Inflamed the Muslim World Speaks Out Against the Evils of Islam. (Available at http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0312538359/truthbeknownfounA/).
Not only does Sultan disprove the spirituality of Islam and the mythology of Allah, but has gone on record noting that “secular Islam” is but a word that no one recognizes in such states as Syria and Turkey. No true Islamic government recognizes a woman to be free, nor does it allow any woman to determine her own life. Instead, Islamic psychiatry declares women who wish to make personal choices to be mentally unfit. A woman is to be constantly under the control of her husband. Islam, in short, is insanity.
