Bayezid's Comments

Reader comment on item: Still Asleep After Mumbai
in response to reader comment: moral in a gist

Bayezid has written many comments, many of them quite detailed and florid, on Islam and its beneficience and tolerance and munificence.

However, he continually fails to elaborate on the fact that Allah is only loving and munificent towards Muslims; he hates the infidels (Kuffars) and instructs his followers to hate them also, reserving his special contempt for Jews (the descendants of apes and pigs, according to Mohammed). Note that the Sura 9:5, the "Verse of the Sword", abrogates 2:256, which states There is no compulsion in religion___". Sura 9.5 states: Then when the Sacred Months (the 1st, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun {unbelievers} wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat as-Salat {the Islamic ritual prayers}), and give Zakat ({alms}, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. This is just of one of many passages which enjoin Dar al Islam (House of Islam) to wage war against Dar al Harb (House of War), both violent war and the war of deceit (taqiyya) and subversion against unbelievers, until Islam reigns supreme over all the earth, and all must fall under the law of Sharia, either converting to Islam, paying the Jizya poll tax and submitting as subservient dhimmis, or fighting and being killed.

Bayezid's comments on "Paradise" are indeed peculiar; the Islamic paradise includes 72 virgins and 24 youths for the valiant strivers in Jihad who are martyred (doesn't this sound like a "bordello in the hereafter", with pedophile benefits to boot?). Also the valiant will drink wine in abundance (non-alcoholic??)(hah!). So what do the faithful subservient Muslimas receive in the afterlife?? As I understand, women will far outnumber men in Hell, being the inferior and less worthy of the sexes.

Bayezid, why is it that under Sharia law (which must eventually replace all other systems of governance when Islam rules) a Muslim woman's testimony is only worth 1/2 that of a Muslim man (and worth only that of a male Dhimmi?) Do you believe in the stoning of adulterers, the cutting off of hands and feet of thieves, the beheading of those who choose to leave Islam, the hanging of homosexuals, the forbidding of the construction of churches or other non-Islamic houses of worship, honor killings, the humiliation and persecution of women who fail to cover themselves sufficiently, and the punishing of women who refuse to marry whom the father orders? A "Religion of Peace", Islam definitely isn't!
