To: "Future Plumbers of America-Hamri Al-Assad"
You say: "I am a muslim. I live in America. I am not an evil, woman-hating, insensitive idiot."
Excellent! Sounds really wonderful ! But now lets see if your words are TRUE.
I ask you: are you a BELIEVING Muslim? Do you, as a Muslim, believe or do you repudiate these Koranic assertions:
"Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their Home: an evil fate." (Quran 9:73) or
"I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips of them." (Quran 8:12 )
"slay the idolators wherever ye find them" (Quran9:5 )
"When you meet the unbelievers in the Jihad strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly. Then grant them their freedom or take ransom from them, until War shall lay down her burdens." (Quran
If they turn apostates, seize them and kill them wherever you find them. (Quran47:4) .4:89)
Now from the Hadiths which speak about the peace-loving Prophet Muhammad. Do you accept or repudiate this injunction:
----Men are the managers of the affairs if women... those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them. (Quran 4:34)
--the Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.' " (Sahih Bukhari 4.260)
Oh Hamri Al-Assad, Muslim who lives in America, I ask you:
If you repudiate the above (and many other similar) assertions how are you a Muslim? (And in that case do please note that last injunction!) .
And if you accept them (note the frequency of the injunction to KILL, slay, etc) - are you an "evil, woman-hating, insensitive idiot" (your words) or not?
