Dr. Pipes

After researching this topic I do not have any doubt that Raymond Ibrahim was correct about this bizarre fatwa of al-liwat fi sabeel Allah which I would translate as gay sex in the cause of Allah after all when the other very strange tradition about the breast feeding of the adult came to the attention of the whole world (and the credit here goes to Father Zakaria Botros who indeed brought it to the attention of his audience) and early on we kept hearing that this is only a hoax but it turned out to be another idiotic Islamic tradition and it is for real.

There is so much in the Arabic web about this strange sex fatwa and as far as i have been able to go back is that this fatwa must have been issued around 2009 or before the attempted assassination of the Suadi minister Mohamed ben Nayef and I still believe that the author of this fatwa must have been al-Awlaki the Yemeni cleric that was killed late last year

The rule of the Shi3a in spreading this fatwa? If you watch FDK TV http://www.fadak.tv/ you will realize that nothing makes a shi3i happy than to find and bring to the whole world's attention stupidities by sunni Muslims but having said this I do not believe that it was a shi3i (as has been suggested in one sunni web site) that wrote this fatwa in-order discredit sunni Islam

As for his article about the call for the destruction of the pyramids and covering ancient Egyptian monuments in wax he is very correct and I spent some time going over his reconstruction of what really happened and watching a few videos on youtube I do believe that he is correct and it is the same old and tired arguments as in the case of the breast feeding of the adult including: It is a hox, it is taken out of context, it is an opinion of one salafi who was expressing his opinion on a not very popular Egyptian TV channel, or that the calls on twitter by a Saudi shiekh and Bahraini shiekh to destory the pyramids and finish the job that was started by Amr ibn al-As is not true as the twitter accounts where they appeared are really not the accounts of these two shiekhs (which I do not believe)

I do believe that Joel Brinkley got it right when he called on Morsi (who has been silent so far) to distance himself and to condemn these fools and to tell the world that the pyramids are safe

We all have to remember that we are told in the Islamic Historical Tradition that Muhammad smashed the 360 idols that were present in the ka3ba and therefore good Muslims sould follow his example by destroying symbols of idolatry the pyramids included and we kuffar should take this threat very seriously

Kudos to Raymond
