Reader comment on item: Strange Logic in the Lebanon War

Submitted by Barbara (United States), Aug 16, 2006 at 02:57

Do Muslims shown tolerance for the non-Muslims? Sure, they do, this tolerance goes back to the very early years of Muhammad himself. That meek , humble prophet , I remember , he said , "For you, your religion, and for me my religion."

Yea, Yea, that was in the beginning . That sweet humble stuff lasted but a few years until his movement gathered strength then doing it "His way", "Islam" , "submission", became the only alternative to death or heavy taxation. The Jazyyeh was a clever ploy for filling the Islamic coffer to support its armies and to finance its further conquests.

Be meek while week "My Friend" but then intolerant power as you grow and gain strength. Recent migration of Muslims to non-Islamic lands began as seemingly harmless, but before long, greater and greater number of Muslims deluged the new territories and as they gained in numbers—by high birth rate as well as new arrivals—Muslims are reverting to their intolerant ways by, for instance, demanding legal status for shariah (Islamic laws). The type of draconian laws that for most parts resemble those of humanity’s barbaric past. Riot over cartoons, ... you all know , on and on we go, pick any Islamic country and "tolerance" ? Gone.

This is truly a propaganda war that the muslims here in the west are falling for; hook, line and sinker.Never before have I seen so many pictures of dead children in the news. This is a very planned out war on the west. Go on any muslim chat or go to myspace.com and search "Muslim" and see what the muslim kids here in the west are shouting. It is the same thing the thousands of refugees returning to south Lebanon are shouting "Victory".

" As staff at some of the world's most prestigious press organizations effectively take Hezbollah's side in its war with Israel,"

Why Not? They are the " Propaganda machines "

below, a little bit of history repeating its self .

http://www.angelfire.com/az/rescon/mgcismai.html

After the death of the sixth Shi'a Imam, Ja'far al-Sadiq in 765, his followers split into two groups disputing which of his two sons - Isma'il or Musa - was the appointed successor. The followers of Isma'il became known as Seveners or Isma'ilis, whilst Musa's followers became the majority main line Twelver Shi'as.

Isma'il had actually died before his father. Some of his followers denied his death and claimed that he was in occultation (ghaybah) and would return, whilst others recognised his son Muhammad as the valid Imam. During the late 8th and early 9th centuries Muhammad and his son organised the intricate hierarchical structure and propaganda machine of the sect.

By the early 10th century the 'Abassid Empire was in turmoil with growing discontent amongst the oppressed peasants, slaves and town proletariat. Isma'ili revolutionary propaganda appealed to all resentful elements of society.

The sect was at first active mainly in rural and tribal areas, but it soon acquired a considerable following in the towns too. Many craftsmen and merchants joined the movement, and they created new trade and crafts guilds at the same time also infiltrating the established Islamic guilds. For centuries they ruled the guilds which constituted an important element in Muslim society, and bent them to their purposes. Their mysterious and elaborate rituals were later imitated by medieval European guilds and secret societies.

The Ismailis were organised into a hierarchical secret society with members ranked in several grades. The leader in a province was called the Da'i. On the basis of the Shi'a doctrine of Taqiyah, the organisation was kept secret. The initiate was forbidden under oath to reveal anything about the teaching or membership of the community. Da'is were sent to all corners of the Muslim world with the commission of starting Isma'ili cells everywhere and their network soon spread worldwide.
