Muslims & The Satanic Verses Controversy
Muslims & The Satanic Verses Controversy
Why are Muslims extremely sensitive when their scripture is subjected to legitimate questioning but are utterly impervious to their own hate mongering and relentless attacks against the beliefs of all non Muslims such as Christians, Jews, Zoroasterians, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans and all Others?
Any criticism of Islamic characters or scripture brings about immense hateful demonstrations by Muslims all over the globe as happened with the Muhammad cartoons.
Salman Rushdie’s “Satanic Verses” book of 1988 raised extremely relevant questions regarding the alleged ‘prophet’ of Islam, Muhammad bin Abd Allah and the so called ‘revelations’ that Muhammad received from Jibreel (Gabriel).
To put it as succinctly as possible, all that humanity has ever had for the last 1400 years, are the assertions of one person, Muhammad bin abd Allah, that Allah was revealing to him the verses of the Quran through the angel Jibreel.
There is not a single other witness to corroborate Muhammad’s claims, either visual or hearing, by any of Muhammad’s wives (about 11 of them) or by any of his intimate companions, that assert they either ever saw or heard Jibreel communicating with Muhammad.
In any sane court of law, such claims would not be admissible.
The reason why Muslims invariably resort to violence to silence anyone revealing the truth about Islam, is not because such people are insulting or perverting the Islamic message, but on the contrary, it is because Muslims “cannot handle the truth about their own scripture”. They cannot defend the indefensible.
The tragedy in both Europe and the USA is the fact, that over the past 60 years, Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and others, have donated hundreds of millions of dollars to Western universities to establish courses about Islam that not only are deceptive but also prohibit any questioning or criticism of Islam in any way shape or form.
They invariably use the utterly inane and oxymoronic accusation of Islamophobia, to silence any and all revelations about the Islamic scripture that exposes the following inherent facts: hate mongering, warmongering, racist, misogynist, duplicitous, hypocritical, treasonous, intolerant, utterly evil and ungodly characters.
Because of these enormous investments, thousands of Western so-called professors, politicians, many clergy and academics, either fall in line or keep their mouths shut (including pope Francis of the Catholics and all the Protestant leaders also). Almost all the Main Line Media and Social Platforms are complicit in the same.
It is absolutely sickening that while the Muslims teach their children and followers in their mosques and Madrassas (religious Islamic schools) in the West to follow only Sharia and abhor not only all Western man made laws and constitutions, but also all other belief systems, no one in the West addresses this fact which is actually, an Islamic treasonous act.
As you are reading this article, there are not more than a few dozen Americans from among 330,000,000 who actually know that the “Satanic Verses” controversy plagued Muhammad 1400 years ago and are mentioned in Muhammad’s Quran.
For 1400 years and continuing, the world has been deceived into believing that Allah – the god of Muhammad and Muslims – is the same as the God of the Bible, which should have been abundantly clear from reading about the Biblical characters and stories mentioned therein that totally contradict both the Bible and New Testament.
Centuries before Muhammad, the Arabs of the peninsula were pagans who had 360 gods and goddesses whose supreme god was called Allah. According to their mythology, Allah had three daughters: al Lat (Crescent moon); al Uzza (Venus star/planet) and al Manat (Hope). They were intercessors between the pagan Arabs and Allah.
From 610 till 622/3 Muhammad was trying his utmost to bring his Quraysh tribe to believe only in ONE god. To convince his people to believe in his mission, he allowed that Allah would remain the supreme god of his followers while Muhammad very cleverly metamorphosed him into the God of Israel to give his new theology, divine legitimacy.
After all, there were both Jewish and Christian Arab tribes in the Arabian Peninsula centuries before Muhammad. These were Arabs who willingly – without coercion – accepted to follow either Moses or Jesus. Therefore, many of his tribe were already cognizant of the God of the Bible and the aspirations of both Jews and Christians for the coming of their Messiah. Muhammad therefore, took up the mantle of the Messiah of the Arabs.
Although the Quran, in its present form, obviously rejects these deities, ‘Muslim’ history asserts otherwise. As always, America Out Loud shares with its readers the full account as recorded in Islamic history.
The Islamic records assert that Muhammad actually spoke Satan’s words as if they were the words of Allah. This event is documented by several early Muslim scholars and is referenced in the Hadith and the Quran. No one should think that it is a story made up by people who are critical of ‘Islam’.
Later Muslim scholars, ashamed and embarrassed that their self- declared prophet spoke Satan’s words, denied the event occurred. A myriad of excuses and contorted stories have been put forth by these later scholars to cover up Muhammad’s sinful error.
It must be very clearly pointed out that the “Satanic Verses” event is not something made up by non-Muslims.
This subject is one of the most controversial in Islam because, Satan was able to deceive Muhammad and thus insinuate himself in the Quran by causing Muhammad to recite his words as if they were Allah’s words.
Muslims always use the mantra “bring forth the proof”. Well, the proof is as follows:
This event is actually documented by the four earliest biographical writers of Muhammad’s life:
Ibn Ishaq’s “Sirat Rasulallah”, Wakidi’s “al Maghazi”, Ibn Sa’d’s “Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir”, and Tabari’s “History”
The Hadith and Quran also contain direct references. Additionally, several other Islamic scholars on Hadith (traditions) support the event’s occurrence such as:
Ibn Abi Hatim, Ibn al-Mundhir, Ibn Mardauyah, Musa ibn ‘Uqba, and Abu Ma’shar.
It is very revealing that Ibn Hajar, a recognized authority on traditions, insists on the truth of this report and says,
“As we have mentioned above, three of its chains of narrators satisfy the conditions requisite for an authentic report.”
Because of printing constraints, we shall explore al Tabari’s version of the events and those who need more detail should go to our Definitions Section in our Website of www.InTheNameofAllah.org.
Tabari VI.107 : SATAN CASTS A FALSE REVELATION ON THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH’S TONGUE
The messenger of Allah was eager for the welfare of his people and wished to effect a reconciliation with them in whatever ways he could. He longed in his soul that something would come to him from Allah which would reconcile him with his tribe.
With his love for his tribe and his eagerness for their welfare it would have delighted him if some of the difficulties which they made for him could have been smoothed out, and he debated with himself and fervently desired such an outcome. Then Allah revealed:
Al Najm 53:19 “Have ye thought upon al-Lat and al-Uzza 20 And Manat, the third, the other?
At this very moment, Satan allegedly cast on his tongue, because of his inner debates and what he desired to bring to his people, the words:
53:21 These are the exalted cranes [Gharaniq] (intermediaries) 22 Whose intercession is to be hoped for”
When the Quraysh heard this, they rejoiced and were happy and delighted at the way in which he spoke of their gods, and they listened to him, while the Muslims, having complete trust in their prophet in respect of the messages which he brought from Allah, did not suspect him of error, illusion, or mistake.
When he came to the prostration, having completed the surah, he prostrated himself and the Muslims did likewise, following their prophet, trusting in the message which he had brought and following his example.
Those polytheists of the Quraysh and others who were in the mosque likewise prostrated themselves because of the reference to their gods which they had heard, so that there was no one in the mosque, believer or unbeliever, who did not prostrate himself.
The Quraysh left delighted by the mention of their gods which they had heard, saying, “Muhammad has mentioned our gods in the most favourable way possible, stating in his recitation that they are the high flying cranes [Gharaniq] and that their intercession is received with approval.”
It is extremely important to point out here and now, that Muhammad and his Muslim followers were prostrating themselves and praying in a purely pagan mosque, a House of idolatry, since they were surrounded by the rock gods of the Quraysh.
Muhammad should not have done so at all as an alleged monotheist.
Then Jibreel came to the Messenger of Allah and said,
“Muhammad, what have you done? You have recited to the people that which I did not bring to you from Allah, and you have said that which was not said to you.”
Then the messenger of Allah was much grieved and feared Allah greatly, but Allah sent down a revelation to him, for He was merciful to him, consoling him and making the matter light for him, informing him that there had never been a prophet or a messenger before him who desired as he desired and wished as he wished but that Satan had cast words into his recitation, as he had cast words on Muhammad’s tongue.
Then Allah cancelled what Satan had thus cast, and established his verses by telling him that he was like other prophets and messengers, and replaced the offending Satanic Verses with:
Al Najm 50: 21 “What! for you the male sex and for Him the female? 22 Behold such would be indeed a division most unfair”
The question that any inquisitive mind will ask is:
How many other verses in the Quran were actually revealed to Muhammad by SATAN and Not Jibreel?
Therefore, what Salman Rushdie was addressing in his book was NOT an attack on Muhammad or Islam but a rendition of real events turned into a fiction. Not a single Muslim can deny any of what we are revealing in this article and their anger is purely to distract from the facts that they cannot deny anything herein revealed.
The worst criminal in this event is Joseph Biden with his deafening silence and total and unconscionable grovelling to the very terrorist Ayatollahs who demanded Rushdie’s death and glorified his attacker.
Japan’s Constitution & ME Security
Japan’s Constitution & ME Security
On 15th October 2013 in my talk with radio host Laurie Roth, I suggested that the best way to counter North Korea’s nuclear threats was to declare publicly, that unless N Korea stops its march to a nuclear power, Japan will rescind the Constitution imposed upon it by the victors after WWII, NOT allowing them to arm themselves once again.
Had any of these governments made such a threat, just the threat alone, China would not have allowed the despots of N Korea to go nuclear because they would fear Japan’s industrial and technological might – after all, Japan has operational nuclear reactors- more than those of N Korea.
Unfortunately, none of their leaders had the foresight, wisdom and or the backbone to do so.
Mr Shinzo Abe was on this path – not publicly declaring going nuclear, just for Japan to be able to go on the offensive if and when required – before he was assassinated.
His party will hopefully continue on this path – after recently winning a majority in parliament – but must publicly increase the heat by declaring to go nuclear.
The Liberal Democrats and their coalition partners gained enough seats in Sunday’s election to form a crucial two-thirds supermajority. They can now amend a clause in the Constitution, imposed by post war American occupiers, that renounces war.
This crucial change will allow Japan to become a military power, capable of global leadership.
South Korea should do exactly the same because it is unconscionable and impractical to believe, that the USA – or any other state, when conflict gets imminent – would go to nuclear war in their defence, exposing American civilians to nuclear holocaust.
To have been effective, these declarations should have been made twenty years ago. This threat would be meaningless today because realistically speaking, both nations should go nuclear since N Korea is already a nuclear power. This will introduce the MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) to the Pacific region.
Biden’s dysfunctional legacy is leading to a great number of states arming themselves to the hilt and many more attempting to go nuclear.
No sovereign nation should ever depend for its survival at the mercy of another state.
As I suggested in my previous article of a Pacific-Atlantic Alliance,
In modern times, only a NATO type of mutual defence alliance would make sense because the burden of war would be shared by several capable nations, not just one, no matter how powerful.
Such a project is being formulated in the Middle East by all the states threatened by the terrorist Ayatollahs’ regime in Tehran. The most outstanding facet of this alliance would be the mutual military support between Muslim Arabs and Israel; impossible to even imagine, only two years ago.
As Biden heads to the Middle East, he and his State Department will not be meeting the leaders of supplicant states but on the contrary, with leaders who are forging – without Biden’s help, what once were unthinkable coalitions – by Real Politik caused by an undependable and unpredictable Biden’s USA.
While Biden, with total lack of wisdom and common sense, keeps talking to the terrorist Iranians regarding a nuclear deal – that not a single Sunni nation as well as Israel- approves of and adding insult to injury, treating the Palestinian terrorists as equal democrats.
In the meantime, the Arabs are forsaking the so-called ‘palestinians’ because they have come to the conclusion after 70 years, that the totally corrupt ‘palestinians’ have actually become a greater danger to their regimes than Israel ever was.
Even the most Islamic state of Saudi Arabia is also realizing that Israel is actually a more dependable ally than Biden’s USA. Who would have imagined even a year ago that Biden would be able to fly directly from Ben Gurion in Israel to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia?
This Biden trip would most probably be the most important of his presidency so far, if only he treats his hosts as equals and not lecture them.
He must NOT raise the subject of human rights in Arabia while totally ignoring the same in Iran and the ‘palestinian’ territories.
The Saudis – especially Mohammed bin Salman – is in no mood to be lectured to while he is doing his utmost to bring his people into the 21st century against the most vocal and dangerous Muslim clerics imaginable.
Who Killed Shirin
Who Killed Shirin?
Most of the Western news reporters have the morals of a pimp and the conscience of a mass murderer. As outrageous as this may sound to some politically correct, undereducated and ill-informed readers, the facts and reality bear me out completely.
While the world is rightly mesmerised by the Ukraine war events, other very important ones are occurring that are very relevant and need our attention.
From May 15th till 5th June 1967, most of the Western news media were writing obituaries regarding the demise of Israel and shedding tons of crocodile tears about the imminent death of Israelis.
They truly believed the Arab propaganda that they (Arabs) were going to finally erase Israel off the face of the Earth and any surviving Jews would be returned to their European countries of origin (while ignoring 950,000 Jewish refugees, from Arab and Muslim countries).
As always with the absolute majority of Western reporters, they rarely dedicate time to investigate, study and analyse worldwide events because they are mentally too lazy and depend on what they call ‘sources’ and ‘informants’ most of whom are very well trained Arab and Muslim propagandists and or apologists for Islam.
After the stunning victory achieved by Israel in the Six Days War of 1967, the Western media’s short lived honeymoon with Israel came to an abrupt end because Israel turned out to be a much more powerful military machine than they (the media) had ever anticipated.
Israelis are not anymore the perceived underdog. All of a sudden, the so called Palestinians – the very aggressors who wanted to exterminate the Israelis – have become the subject of their attention and sympathy.
These so called ‘reporters’ became the mouthpiece and propaganda arms of the Arab and Muslim terror organizations such as Hamas of Gaza, Hezbollah of Lebanon, al Shabab of Somalia, Boko Haram of Nigeria, Al Jazeera of Qatar and dozens of others all over the Arab and Muslim worlds.
Although there are many very prominent Western news people embedded in Arab and Muslim countries, extremely few of them ever read – let alone studied Muhammad’s Quran, his Sunna or the bloody history of Arab and Islamic imperialism – to comprehend the mentality of the creatures of the sea they are living in.
Because of their extreme lack of knowledge and laziness, they invariably fall for the lies, deception and deliberate contortions of all truths to suit the Arab and Muslim agenda of demonising and de humanizing both Israelis and Jews.
The Western media has become the foremost accomplice of Arab and Muslim propaganda, by regurgitating without ever checking their sources of ‘information’. They are complicit in knowingly spreading Jew and Israel hatred.
Let me share with you – as always – the facts that are available profusely for anyone who is fair minded:
1. Every single Islamic terror organization uses its own civilians as a shield to protect the terrorists amongst them. Hamas of Gaza and Hezbollah of Lebanon have been doing so for the last 15 to 30 years respectively.
2. They put missiles, artillery, ammunition and terror tunnels near or in hospitals, mosques, schools, high rise buildings and civilian areas so that when Israelis retaliate, there would be ‘civilian’ Muslims dead to blame Israel of war crimes. The news media knows this but ignores it.
3. There are hundreds of videos on You Tube, taken by Arabs or Muslims proving my points. Even allegedly young men ‘murdered’ by Israelis, all of a sudden get up and run, very much alive.
4. Not a single media in the West ever points out that billions of world travellers have to endure search humiliations and delays at airports because of ‘palestinian’ and Muslim terrorists; plus, the hundreds of billions of dollars of increased costs of travelling to finance the security apparatus and regime.
5. Although every single Muslim terrorist group or individual quotes verbatim, verses from Muhammad’s Quran – justifying their deeds of mass murder- the Western media deliberately tries to de-couple Islamic terrorism from Islamic scripture as if the two are not linked at all.
6. Anyone who reads even Eight suras (chapters) from Muhammad’s Quran of 114 chapters – chapters 2 to 9 – one must come to the only possible conclusion, that these acts of terror against none Muslims/Kuffar/Infidels or against different sects of Islam, are justified by Allah’s Sharia, that no true Muslim can ever deviate from.
7. Shirin Abu Akleh was the Christian al Jazeera reporter in the Holy Land for the last 25 years reporting on the Arab Israeli conflict. She was killed during an Israeli raid on suspected terrorists in Jenin, 11th May 2022.
8. As always, the Muslims have their version of events and the Israelis have theirs. During the Gaza Israel war of 2021 when over 4000 rockets were fired by Hamas against Israeli civilian targets (a war crimes act), they (Hamas) denied they were hiding their rockets and missiles in and among civilian areas in Gaza although, hundreds of videos taken in Gaza during the conflict and one of al Jazeera’s own reporters was telling the world that rockets were being fired from under her building.
9. After Shirin’s death, why did the Palestinians refuse to have an autopsy to determine type of bullet, angle of penetration etc to be investigated? If they have nothing to hide, after any Crime Scene Investigation, such autopsies are a must to determine cause and effect.
10. As always, the Muslims are accusing Israel of deliberately killing the reporter. Why would Israel murder such an important reporter in public and cause enormous PR and political damage to her image? Why ignore the very possibility that the terrorists might have killed her by mistake?
11.There are videos of Muslims shooting indiscriminately in the narrow corridors of Jenin at whom? Why were some of the Muslims shouting in Arabic that an Israeli soldier is down when there was none?
12.As always also, not a single Western reporter is double checking or investigating these events for two reasons: a) such a reporter would be murdered if he/she discovered the truth b) these ‘reporters’ are the mouth piece of the ones who pay their salaries. Not one of them can use his/her mind independently.
13.After all, not a single Muslim reporter under either Hamas or the Palestinian Authority have any freedom to report truthfully and those who did suffered either severe physical punishment or death. The records are available for those who want to know.
The levels of hypocrisy, duplicity, mendacity and immorality exhibited by most of the Western media and the UN – always condemning Israel but never the perpetrators of terror and subjugation or the oppressors – are breath taking especially when the facts are crystal clear but are deliberately – with malice aforethought – completely ignored.
