Open Letter to

Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie, President Union for Reform Judaism and other ignoramuses who spew complete fiction about Islam.

  • There exists in this country among all Americans – whether Jews, Christians, or non-believers – a huge and profound ignorance about Islam.

That much is beyond dispute. But a few of us are trying to do something about it. We have listened to Islam’s spokesmen, and we have read Allah’s word and Muhammad’s traditions. We have even delved into Islamic law to see what Islam is all about. Everyone should do the same instead of pontificating from the ivory tower of ignorance.

  • …there is no shortage of voices prepared to tell us that fanaticism and intolerance are fundamental to Islamic religion, and that violence and even suicide bombing have deep Koranic roots…

Rabbi Yoffie implies that:

  1. fanaticism is not fundamental to Islam
  2. intolerance is not fundamental to Islam
  3. Islam is a religion
  4. violence does not have deep Koranic roots.
  1. Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was a fanatic.

    Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 54:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    The Prophet said, “By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for some men amongst the believers who dislike to be left behind me and whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind any Sariya’ (army-unit) setting out in Allah’s Cause. By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Al1ah’s Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.

    Whom do Muslims emulate?

    By the declaration of the second part of the Muslim shahada (witness), which is “ash-hadu anna Muhammad rasool Allah” (Muhammad is the messenger of Allah), a Muslim vows to accept Muhammad (pbuh) as his role model in life. If the Qur’an is the Word of God, the model life led by Muhammad is its practical expression. That means a Muslim has to actualize the commands and prohibitions of God given in the Qur’an by following in all the areas of life, Allah’s Messenger, Muhammad (pbuh).

  2. 3:85 And whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. 98:6. Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islâm, the Qur’ân and Prophet Muhammad ) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.

    9:30 And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allâh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allâh’s Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!

  3. Jews & Christians are the worst of creatures, to be burned; Allah curses them. <sarcasm> No sign of intolerance at all! </sarcasm>

  4. Islam is not a religion. Islam is a war machine camouflaged with a thin veil of false faith fabricated for the purpose of motivating murderers and camouflaging their intent. This fact is fully documented in Has Islam Been Hijacked?
  5. 2:216 makes Jihad mandatory, not optional. “Jihad is ordained for you.” 2:190…193 give us a few hints. …”fight in the Way of Allâh those who fight you”…”kill them wherever you find them”…”fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allâh) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allâh (Alone).”… Read the translator’s note on 2:190 at the bottom of the page. 8:39 and 9:29 are fight until loops, declaring unremitting war upon pagans, Jews & Christians respectively. Unfortunately, they are also the basis of Islamic law, which I quote from The Reliance of The Traveler, a widely accepted handbook of Fiqh.

    The caliph (o-25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o-11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
    “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29)…

  • How did it happen that Christian fundamentalists, such as Pat Robertson and Franklin Graham, make vicious and public attacks against your religious tradition?

It happened this way: Robertson & Graham accurately described Islam’s tradition! I refer you to Sahih Bukhari’s books of Jihad & Khumus. Those books describe Islam’s traditions: what Muhammad did and said on and about the battlefield.

  • How did it happen that a member of Congress, Tom Tancredo, now running for President, calls for the bombing of Mecca and Medina?

It happened this way: Congressman Tancredo was briefed on the terrorist threats and decided that we need a deterrent. He called for targeting Mecca if we are nuked because no other deterrent is possible against those who seek martyrdom.

  • As a Jew I know that our sacred texts, including the Hebrew Bible, are filled with contradictory propositions, and these include passages that appear to promote violence and thus offend our ethical sensibilities. Such texts are to be found in all religions, including Christianity and Islam.

Only Islamic scripture sanctifies & mandates Jihad, genocide & terrorism with clear, direct, open ended outcome based commands.

3:151, 8:12, 8:39, 8:67 & 9:29 have no equivalents in the Gospels & Acts. Go to Hell and hunt for them!! Those are Islamic law, binding on every Muslim in all times and all places.

I previously cited Reliance of The Traveler. Now I will cite Al-Shafii, a prominent Islamic Jurist.

Al-Shafi’i (God have mercy on him) said: “The least that the imam must do is that he allow no year to pass without having organised a military expedition by himself, or by his raiding parties, according to the Muslims’ interest, so that the jihad will only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse.” He said: “If he did not undertake the sending of enough troops to fight, those who are absent (must) go out, and consider as an obligation that which God (who is praised) said.”

Do not take my word for this! Do not believe anyone who claims to be an expert! Go to the sources; hear it from the ass’s mouth! Click the hyper links in this article and read the source documents.  Above all, never believe any damn fool Dhimmi who assures you that “Islam is a religion of peace.”!

  1. Many people talk about the need to reform Islam. Now you can stop talking and start helping.

    With the help of our readers we went through the Koran and removed every verse that we believe did not come from Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate. However, it is possible that we missed something, and we could use your help. If you find verses in the reformed version of the Koran that promote violence, divisiveness, religious or gender superiority, bigotry, or discrimination, please let us know the number of the verse and the reason why it should be removed. Please email your suggestions to koran-AT-reformislam.org.

    When we finish editing process, we would like to publish Reform Koran in as many languages as possible. If you could help with translation or distribution of the Reform Koran, please email us at koran-AT-reformislam.org. If you could provide financial support, please visit our support page.
