Skip to comments.Free Muslims Against Terrorism, Or More Deception? - (Kamal Nawash to visit Tom Tancredo)
Posted on 07/26/2005 3:10:20 PM PDT by CHARLITE
Mr. Kamal Nawash who calls himself the president of Free Muslims Against Terrorism, with 15 chapters across America is planning to meet the Congressman Tom Tancredo this Wednesday.
In a communiqué Mr. Nawash expressed his understanding of the frustration of the Congressman when the latter hypothetically said; America should bomb the Islamic Holy Sites in Mecca as a deterrent to Islamic terrorism. He plans to tell the Congressman Tancredo who expressed the sentiment of millions of Americans who on daily bases watch in horror as dozens of innocent people are murdered in the name of Islam, that many Muslims share his frustration about the senseless killing of innocent people in the name of our beloved religion.
I wish I could believe Mr. Nawash but unfortunately I dont. Muslims in general do not have much sympathy for the victims of Islamic terrorism. Those who have sympathies are merely nominal Muslims and have no understanding of Islam and its agenda and they are not many. Many Muslim feel the murder of innocent people is perfectly justifiable. The hatred of non-believers and the instruction to kill them is expressed unequivocally in the Quran in hundreds of verses. True Muslims, those who read the Quran and are familiar with the sayings of Muhammad, cannot condemn terrorism because terrorism is Holy Jihad and Jihad is a pillar of Islam. It is thanks to terrorism that this "beloved religion" of Mr. Nawash expanded from the very start.
Mr. Nawash has more supporters and well-wishers among non-Muslims who are desperate to hear a voice of moderation coming from Islam than among Muslim themselves. Muslims do not give much importance to people like Mr. Nawash. He speaks with no authority from the scriptures. His mouth filling 15 chapters of his organization across America are mere 15 individuals who also share his views and nothing more.
On May 14, Mr. Nawash organized a rally in downtown Washington, D.C. to denounce terrorism. According to his own statement many of the leading Arab American organizations including the Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee did not endorse the event. In fact few attended the rally and most of them were the speakers. By all intent and purposes that rally was a fiasco.
Why Muslims do not support him? It is because Jihad cannot be separated from Islam. Muslims know that. Mr. Nawash also knows that. By denouncing terrorism Mr. Nawash is not making Muslims more peaceful. To do that one has to denounce the Quran and Mr. Nawash is not willing to do that. In fact he still calls Islam his beloved religion and in his website he has stated: The Free Muslims Coalition does not seek to change the tenets of the religion. However, the Coalition believes that the Koran only provides general principals of governance which leaves the faithful with substantial flexibility to modernize popular Muslim practices and beliefs.
This statement is false and misleading. The Quran says unbelievers are filthy; Allah dislikes them, they will be fuels of hell and it orders Muslims to slay them. There is no equivocation in that and no amount of reinterpretation can change the obvious message of hate of that book.
So why is Mr. Nawash speaking against terrorism and claming to be a Muslim at the same time?
There are two possibilities.
a) Mr. Nawash is trying to pull wool over the eyes of the Westerners, by telling them what THEY want to hear and by giving them more false hopes that Islam has a peaceful side as well. In this way he will buy more time for Islam to wreak havoc.
b) Mr. Nawash, taking advantage of the gullibility of the Westerners and their lack of understanding of Islam has found a way to promote himself and this is nothing but a personal ego trip.
In fact Mr. Nawash, although dismissed and ignored by Muslims has managed to gain notability in high circles in America. He has been interviewed by Bill O'Reilly of Fox News and represented the U.S. before the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in the session on combating intolerance against Muslims. His audience is not the Muslims who ignore him but the non-Muslims.
Islamic terrorism cannot be defeated by sugarcoating the violent teachings of the Quran. In fact that is precisely what we must not do. We have to tell the truth and expose the Quran, not dissimulate the truth and play more the game of taqiyyah. Islam cannot be reformed just as Nazism cannot be reformed. The only way to combat terrorism is to denounce the Quran that teaches violence, hate and terrorism. The efforts of people like Mr. Nawash, if not motivated by self promotion, are misguided at best. They will only delay the fight against terrorism and its nefarious ideology. Mr. Nawashs anti-terrorist rhetoric has no effect on Muslims. Muslims have only one source for their guidance and that is the Quran. They have no need for likes of Mr. Nawash or anyone else to redefine for them Islam. Their Holy Book is clear and loud. It demands the slaying of non believers and no one can change that.
Mr. Nawash states: The Free Muslims recognize that the Muslim leadership in America and abroad has failed in challenging and discrediting the ideology that leads to extremism and terrorism but we are now trying to reverse our past mistakes by aggressively challenging the terrorists and their evil ideology.
Mr. Nawash condemns the evil ideology of the terrorists. I wonder what ideology could that be? The terrorists have only one ideology and that is Islam. It is Islam that leads to extremism and terrorism. Are the terrorist practicing a non-Islamic ideology that we are not aware of? And yet he calls that ideology of hate his beloved religion. Are we supposed to believe that Mr. Nawash is totally ignorant of the violent teachings of the Quran or is he playing the Islamic game of deception to buy more time for this evil ideology?
Today like always, nothing but truth can help us. Only truth can combat terrorism. Only truth can save mankind from its doom. Mr. Nawash equates terrorism to cancer. To prescribe the right medicine, the physician must have the right prognosis. He must know the truth. Likewise to cure the cancer of terrorism we must know the truth too and know what causes it. If Mr. Nawash truly cares about peace and is genuinely against terrorism, he must stop calling Islam his beloved religion and must combat this evil ideology. The war against Islamic terrorism cannot be won with more deceptions and more lies. We must destroy the evil ideology that feeds and inspires Islamic terrorism. Only truth can set us free.
I'll bet the muslims that lurk here at FR won't show their pencil-thin necks on this thread. Real muslims run from Ali Sina like roaches run from the light.
Good post, Char. Keep up the good work!
I don't bother to read articles about "Moderate Muslims" anymore. Waste of time. Too many turn out to be apologists for Terror.
Hugh Hewitt has his buddy from CAIR back again today.
This is the same joke of an organization that had the anti terrorism rally in DC this past May. Less than 50 people showed up.
Free Muslims Against = Terrorism
Encouraging because "The Truth shall set you Free." Sobering because the truth is that there are appr. 1.3 billion of them. It ain't gonna be a fun fight.
Things can get back to normal and the Trojan horse version of Islam can mask the real deal
The march to Dhimmitude will continue right on schedule
Until the next terror attack and then so called moderates can host another of their elaborate charades for the rubes who would much rather believe them then be forced to find a pair and actually take care of the real problem once and for all..
Cognitive dissonance says it's much easier to believe the enemy's shills and paid for politicos and let them have their way with our country than to have act like the real men our forefathers were. imo
I hate terrorists as much as the next guy. BUT...we've been saying for the last four years that no muslims will come out and condemn terrorism and take our side.
Well, here's one, Kamal Nawash. So he doesn't get much support from the rest of the muslim community. But he's trying to spread the word. I'm going to believe him unless I see evidence that he's got ties to terrorism.
We can't complain for years that no American muslims are taking our side - and then slap them in the face when they finally show up.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm, said the very quotable Ralph Waldo Emerson, who also said, Everywhere the history of religion betrays a tendency to enthusiasm.
I could be wrong but there is a deeper meaning in that that I am unable to completely fathom right now.Or maybe it has just gone right over my head.
Again thanx Charlite
BTW, I really LOVE your tagline. It's super special! "After his defeat by the Son of God, Satan changed his name to Allah and started over."
MY brand of enthusiasm will overcome any sword-and-knife wielding Islamic-Muslim cut throat's "enthusiasm" any day, for the simple reason that what they believe in doesn't exist. What I believe in has existed since my forefathers came here from England, Scotland (in the late 1600's) and Germany (in 1840)! It's called FREEDOM, American style!
There just need to be about 300 million of me!
Kamal will be doing his monthly radioshow tomorrow on RIGHTALK http://www.rightalk.com at 2pm ET. Call in and ask.
A raghead named "Kamal." Comedy writers can't get easier material.
What Pete said. Everyone here on FR has been screaming since 911 that Muslims weren't doing enough to condemn militant Islam in their religion, and here one pops up and the first reaction from the "enlightened" is to kick him the butt and toss him to the curb. Make up your damn minds.
It's almost like you're itching for a religous world war between Christianity and Islam.
I'm disappointed in you John.
Kamal will be in his meeting with Tancredo, Ray will be holding down host duties.
