Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad called upon Muslims worldwide to boycott Dutch products in protest of a film released Monday on the Internet which criticised Islam’s holy book, the Quran.
Dr Mahathir was referring to Fitna, a 15-minute film posted on a website on Thursday that highly criticised Islam, setting verses of the Quran against a background of violent images from terrorist attacks.
“They will continue to do this until we show to them Islam is a good religion, that we are not violent people, that we don’t tell lies to people...but this must be shown in practice by the Muslim community,” he said.
Legalization of Gay, women and children trafficking for sex, weeds. I know that The Hague is in this country but that doesn’t change anything, does it? Before criticizing Islam, they might want to ask what ‘color’ their history of colonization is. Is it white or is it blood-stained? On the other hand, Tarikh el-Islam or The History of Islam is undeniably just-driven.
This is certainly not a vague claim. Check your history books and commentaries but NOT those ‘edited’ or written by figures like wafa sultan (!).
The administrator watched this disturbing video of Fitna on YouTube and could not understand why this case-sensitive video was not banned. Do they really NEED Muslims to launch another ‘boycott attack’? So be it.
The administrator stands strong with Dr M’s call for Muslims around the globe to rally against Dutch products until they take away this video, until YouTube does something about it and until Geert Wilders apologizes to all Muslims around the world, OPENLY. Here are reasons why:
1> --1--The Quranic translations within this video are unspecific without considering the target group of the Surahs and the reasons for revelations (Asbaab e-Nuzul) rendering the entire video invalid.
2> --2--The video shows images of Muslims and connects these images with terrorism but does not inform the viewers of the source of the images and how the two entities connect. This is less than informative and is illogical.
3> --3--The creator of the video is motivated by fallacious hatred and not by intention to seek truth and reveal it as the compilation made has too broad a perspective that viewers could not determine the similarity which the clips share. Again, the target group of the speeches in the clips (in Arabic and English) and the intentions of the speeches were not revealed showing how the creator is eager of implementing fallacies.
4> --4--The Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) cartoons, we knew, created turmoil and unrests. Yet, the creator included one of them and repeatedly too suggesting that THEY ASKED FOR IT.
5> --5--One of the clips involves a small child’s expression. This is totally unacceptable. Labeling an innocent child to be a zealot is universally WRONG. Blame the parents if you wish but LEAVE THE CHILD ALONE-tabula rasa-. (not another one of your ‘child trafficking’ now, is it?).
6> --6--The intention of the video is crystal clear; to label all Muslims to have AT LEAST the smallest urge to commit crime in the name of their religion. This is definitely wrong as in the Quran, ALLAH S.W.T. commands all Muslims to treat humans fairly regardless of their religion. AN example to this is;”O ye who believe! stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to piety: and fear Allah. For Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.”[Sura El-Ma’idah, Aayah 8]-wonder why they INTENTIONALLY missed this one in the video-.
7> --7--It is not true that Huduud (a branch of Islamic Law to punishment of adultery, thievery, et cetera, crimes) is cruel. A proof to this is the case which occurred long time ago in the age of Muhammad (PBUH) and amongst the Sahaabah in which Muaz (Allah is well pleased with him) committed adultery but the noble prophet REFUSED to IMMEDIATELY take action on him. This is a good example of how it is VERY HARD to actually deliver the punishment of Huduud.
8> --8--Would it be fair for us to rule the commentaries made by the Palestinians in this video to be inhumane as we do not go through their sorrows and hardships of living in a ravaging battlefield, of having children be killed mercilessly among them, of having bloody history like the ‘ethnic cleansing’ of Shatilla and Sabra and of being ignored? Would it be fair for the non-Muslims to label ALL Muslims as terrorist (what Islamophobia suggests) while not bothering about the truth (9-11 report was INCOMPLETE and closed despite private investigating committees’ dissatisfactions suggesting high probability of conspiracy).
Geert Wilders is the LAST kind of man a peaceful world needs. Let us boycott their products (peaceful mean).
And I wonder why The Sun newspaper is not so concern of this issue like their 'buddy'; NST. All they ever publish are claims of individuals 'attacking' Islam with weak ideas.
