in response to reader comment: Weak arguments, lost battle, wrong strategy

I don't care who wears a burka or not.

David Horowitz somewhat notably challenged a female Palestinian sympathizer with this question: "I'm a Jew. The head of Hezbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn't have to hunt us down globally. For it or against it?" To which she replied, "For it."

I would screen everyone coming into the country by signing this pledge under penalty of perjury and deportation if they ever contradict it:

I repudiate the following as either false or not operative after the life of Muhammad (also printed in Arabic so it isn't repudiated just because it's a translation as a form of taqiyyah):

Quran [9.29] Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
Quran [9.30] And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!
And:
[9.123] O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).
About which Ibn Kathir says, "Allah commands the believers to fight the disbelievers, the closest in area to the Islamic state, then the farthest."

Sahih Muslkim 2921a Ibn 'Umar reported Allah's Messenger as saying: "You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them until even a stone would say: Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew (hiding himself behind me) ; kill him."
