Skip to comments.Dr. Wafa Sultan: Exposing the Lies of Islam
Posted on 03/17/2006 5:32:09 AM PST by Dark Skies
An amazing and courageous Arab woman has gotten little attention here in the United States, even though she is now an American. But Dr. Wafa Sultan got plenty of attention in the Middle East when she appeared on Al Jazeera a few weeks ago.
Dr. Sultan did the unthinkable: She appeared on Arab television and condemned Islam. She was there to debate not one, but two Islamic scholars. One was an Egyptian professor of religious studies identified as Dr. Ibrahim al-Khouli and the other was an unidentified Algerian cleric. They were so furious that both men quickly labeled her a heretic. Viewers who see the segments now posted on the Internet will observe one man waving his arms around in frustration and the other nervously shuffling papers as though he is searching for an answers that he cant seem to find.
The very fact that a woman dared to speak out against Islam was insult enough for them, but when she left them speechless with her undeniable logic, their anger and hatred came through like a tidal wave. The refusal to respond to her charges spoke volumes.
Dr. Sultan was born to devout Muslim parents and raised in Syria. She herself was a practicing Muslim until she experienced a life-changing event as she was working towards her medical degree at the University of Aleppo in Syria. Masked gunmen entered her classroom and as they shouted, God is Great! they riddled her professors body with bullets. It was that day that she began to question Islam and its claim that it is a religion of peace.
Dr. Sultan did what Muslims are forbidden to do: She began to question the teachings of Islam, Mohammed, and the Quran. Once a Muslim begins to question Islam it can be like a dam bursting, and threats from Islam cannot hold it back. This onslaught of questions is what Islamic leaders fear. Once unleashed, this desire for answers about Islams teachings cannot be put aside--and they cannot be answered. The threat of death and eternal hell is Islams only of control over the masses.
Within Islam, there is no greater sin than to question the teachings of Islam or Mohammed, and to do so is considered heresy and blasphemy and is punishable by death. Dr. Sultan is now a marked woman and no one is more aware of this than she. She now receives daily death threats but takes them all in stride. She is a woman at peace with her decision to speak out.
As she put forth one accusation after another, the two Islamic scholars had no answers. Their only response was that they didnt have to respond to her because she was blaspheming Islam.
There is no logical response that the two Islamic religious leaders could have given when a strong and defiant Dr. Sultan tore into them with statements such as this: The Jews have come from the tragedy and forced the world to respect them, with their knowledge, not with their terror, with their work, not with their crying and yelling. We have not seen a single Jew blow himself up in a German restaurant. We have not seen a single Jew destroy a church. We have not seen a single Jew protest by killing people.
Dr. Sultan finished her opening salvo with: Only the Muslims defend their beliefs by burning down churches, killing people, and destroying embassies. This path will not yield any results. The Muslims must ask themselves what they can do for humankind, before they demand that humankind respect them.
The two Islamic scholars were not only bowled over by a strong womans words against Islam, but by the double insult of comparing Muslims to Jews.
What must concern the leaders of Islam is that the taped interview was seen by millions of Muslims in the Arab world. That interview is now available on the Internet and according to a report in the New York Times has already been viewed over a million times. Muslims are seeing a strong and successful woman orally challenge two male Islamic leaders and their only response was that they didnt have to respond. These arrogant men looked like children being scolded by their mother.
Dr. Sultan went on to demand that the clerics explain a religion that encourages its young people to commit suicide and murder in the name of God. In a clear voice she declared to the two angry men: It [the war] is a clash between two opposites, between two eras. It is a clash between a mentality that belongs to the Middle Ages and another mentality that belongs to the 21st century. It is a clash between civilization and backwardness, between the civilized and the primitive, between barbarity and rationality.
Who is better to put the War against Islam in its simplest terms than a woman who has witnessed its brutality and oppression first hand? This words of this amazing woman are not just important to Muslims but to Americans who still believe in the fantasy that Islam is a religion of peace.
Dr. Sultan was raised to be a good and obedient Muslim. Without realizing it, Muslims all over the world are mentally imprisoned by the teachings of Islam. By means of lies, threats, extreme physical punishment, and brainwashing, the hierarchy of Islam orders the followers of Islam to commit the most heinous acts of violence and terrorism in the name of God.
When forced to explain this violent religion called Islam, the scholars have no answers. The experts wave their hands and bellow blasphemy and heretic and send their obedient followers out to the streets to burn and riot to deflect attention from their own inability to answer questions about their own beliefs. Death threats to the perceived heretic soon follow.
There is no forgiveness within Islam for believers who have chosen the path of enlightenment and freedom from the chains of Islam. Verily, those who disbelieved after their Belief and then went on increasing in their disbelief--never will their repentance be accepted. (3:90-91) Islamic law states that according to Allahs apostle Mohammed, there are only three accepted reasons to shed the blood a Muslim: One who has shed the blood of another Muslim without cause, one who has committed adultery, and a Muslim who becomes an apostate. (Abandons Islam) Anyone who decides no longer to abide by the tyrannical laws of Islam is put in the same category as a murderer and an adulterer.
Dr. Sultan should be invited to speak on as many American television talk shows as possible to explain to her fellow Americans the danger of the enemy this country faces. She has put her life on the line to try and save other Muslims from the mass suicide they are engaging in, on the orders of men who know the truth but refuse to speak it. The power and prestige given to these scholars by Islam is far more important to them than the lives of ordinary Muslims.
To those threatening Dr. Sultan with death, she says only this: I have no fear. I believe in my message. It is like a million-mile journey, and I believe I have walked the first and hardest 10 miles.
Indeed, the hardest thing in the life of any Muslim may be realizing that Islam is a lie. Only then is freedom realized. Like a drowning man who reaches the surface and takes that first breath of air, realizing the truth about Islam is the first and most difficult step for a Muslim, but the journey of life now free is worth the struggle.
Islam fears people like Dr. Sultan. If ten Muslims listen to her and question, the number will grow exponentially and Islam will be forced to evolve and join the modern world or Islam as we know it will perish. Free people will not mourn Islams passing and the world be a better place for it.
Certainly a brave courages woman! Good for her! More of this needs to happen!
She won the verbal duel with the Koran scientist who has memorized the Koran but has a 3rd grade education in everything else. All this Koran scholar can do is kiss his fingers with his mouth then throw out his hands at her in some gesture I don't understand. It might mean FU.
There are many others like her, but are largely ignored by our own MSM. All of them have to live in secracy because of death threats.
The blood cult of Islam is pure evil, it needs to feed on death to survive.
Somebody send Wafa one of those false noses and a wig.
I could watch this over and over. It's like porn for moderate Muslims. Meet Wafa Sultan, my new best friend.
Also check out the Muslim Offense Level:
He was trying to cast one of Mohammad's spells on her to make her shut up. Muslims have practiced sorcery since Muhammads time, and of cource before that.
When the Crusades reached Jerusalem, muslim sorcerers stood on it's walls and shouted all sorts of magic spells at them.
Of course, they don't like to admit this dirty little Islamic secret. Mohammad mentions quite a few little sorcery tricks he used himself.
I believe if islam indeed can be reformed, it will start with the women...they bear the brunt of islam viscousness, violence, brutality and opression.
They are the ones who must endure lonliness, ignorance, mutialtion and living in a burka.
LMAO! Muslim ofence level. When it goes red, that's when riots break out? or does that happen a little earlier and we
haven't seen what happens for red yet?
Naturally, we would all like to see her live out her life to the fullest without experiencing any harm, but please note; she is not afraid. She has the faith of her own conviction to give her courage.
Bump for later reading....
When Dr. Wafa Sultan demanded respect from a Muslim cleric after being called a heretic, I cheered her on. When she criticized the Muslims who react violently in typical knee-jerk fashion, I was smiling with glee. And she nailed it when she said Muslims should learn from the example of the Jewish community who command world respect with their accomplishments despite decades of anti-Semitism and the decimation of the Holocaust. How could anyone disagree with that?
But when Dr. Sultan is quoted in a recent interview as saying Islam is beyond repair, riddled with teachings that exhort Muslims to kill non-Muslims, subjugate women, and disregard human rights; when she says "I don't believe you can reform Islam," and that the only reason the vast majority of the world's Muslim population is peaceful is because they can't read Arabic and don't know what the Quran teaches, that's when I stop cheering.
Good. First Al Jazeera unexpectedly displays this bit of furiously free exchange, and now we get a peek at progressive angst.
Some interesting stuff on the MU website. From a 3 March article by Imam Abu Laith Luqman Ahmad:
Anyone who hasnt capitalized on the recent malicious caricature portrayal of the Prophet (SAWS) to express their outrage, promote their organization, get their name in the paper, pontificate the loftiness of Islamic ideals, start a membership drive, do a little political posturing, or to open dialogue, or defend the Prophet (SAWS) has missed their opportunity. The issue has now officially become a non-issue. There was no fatwa or official sounding consensus of scholars declaring cessation of protest. On the contrary, the media puppeteers, knowing what motivates Muslims to action, simply turned off the cameras and directed them to another venue. Muslims are well trained to tailor their activity on the basis of subliminal media directives, and it looks like we were duped again. In other words ladies and gentlemen, weve been had. Or as al-Hajj Malik Shabaaz (Malcolm X) used to say, bamboozled, hoodwinked, flimflammed.
Of course there are those in denial and thats to be expected. After all, Islam is our universal adapter. All we need to do is preface an action with; this is for the sake of Allah or, this is for Islam, or, this is in defense of Islam and it assumes immediate legitimacy irregardless of whether its fair, Islamic, prudent, or in agreement with the shariah. Since as Muslims, everything we do is ostensibly in the name of Islam, for Islam, for the Muslims, for Allah, in defense of Islam etc., we are never wrong about anything, ever. Perhaps this is how we justify suicide bombings where the innocent (including women and children) are casualties. If the world was unaware how sensitive Muslims are about our Prophet (SAWS), then our recent response not only erased any ambiguity, it showed how malleable the global Muslim community has become.
By even the most conservative accounts, weve shown that we are unpredictable, volatile, rage driven, and that a little name calling and scribbling on a piece of paper can stir us into frenzy. . . .
Interesting post and links! Thx!
I just searched aljazeera.net for Wafa Sultan and got zero hits. You think they're hiding something?
She is a brave woman. She tells the Imam "Brother, you can believe in stones if you like, but just don't throw them at me."
I'm sure he would love to if he could get his hands on her.
