An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
An Iranian official called this week for an ‘Islamic Awakening’ movement to help Palestinian Authority Arabs “demolish the Zionist regime”, the IRNA news agency reported.
The comments were made at a conference in Tehran in honor of Nakba Day – the day of catastrophe – which is what the Arabs call the English date of May 15, when the State of Israel was re-established with a declaration of independence in 1948.
In a brief address at the end of the conference, the official, Hossein Shiekholeslam said, “In success of a revolution three major factors need to play effective roles, and they are the people, the leadership, and the school of thought, or ideology.”
Well, I don’t know about you, but I think this world has seen enough ‘islamic awakening’ to last centuries! What we REALLY need is a REAL awakening in the churches and synagogues! A turning back to God. The REAL God!
The Islamic Republic of Iran has as its ideal human felicity throughout human society, and considers the attainment of independence, freedom, and rule of justice and truth to be the right of all people of the world. Accordingly, while scrupulously refraining from all forms of interference in the internal affairs of other nations, it supports the just struggles of the mustad’afun against the mustakbirun in every corner of the globe.
You’ll notice a couple of words not usually found in an English dictionary, so it was time to investigate further.
Mustad’afun – The oppressed (Muslim) masses (Khomeini and Qaradawi). Khomenini took up the populist rhetoric of the left and was therefore appealing to the entire spectrum from the left to the Islamists. He accused the imperialists of dividing the society into the oppressors and the oppressed and declared that it was a duty for the ulama to save these people. However, after the end of the Revolution, he purged the leftists from the government.
I pondered this for a bit. Then, came to the conclusion, the only people who oppress muslims are………..muslims. So, I’m not real sure who exactly that lunatic, Khomeini, was actually referring to. Ok, what about the other word? It took a while, but I was thinking it was the opposite, and I was correct.
Mustakbirun – Oppressors. (Sometimes, I amaze m’self…especially when I’m only on my first cup of coffee!)
If you look at the history of islam, with open eyes, you’d see a great deal of oppressing going on, with non muslims being the most oppressed. Of course, the society as a whole is oppressive, so anyone living under islamic rule would, by default, be oppressed. Wearing a burlap sack, from head to toe, is quite oppressive, IMHO.
I also came across the words being defined as ‘arrogant – aggressor’ (mustakbirun) and ‘weak – oppressed’ (mustad’afun). Jeez! Sure hope I got those straight. It becomes quite confusing, especially when you consider “Surely Allah does not love aggressors.” I reckon he’s none too fond of the Iranian and PA regimes then, eh?
Take a good hard look at the slave trade. While there is no end to the shame of the Americas (North & South) in this area, at least they didn’t murder babies born to the slaves in the sex trade.
A comparison of the Islamic slave trade to the American slave trade reveals some interesting contrasts. While two out of every three slaves shipped across the Atlantic were men, the proportions were reversed in the Islamic slave trade. Two women for every man were enslaved by the Muslims.
While the mortality rate for slaves being transported across the Atlantic was as high as 10%, the percentage of slaves dying in transit in the Trans Sahara and East African slave trade was between 80 and 90%!
While almost all the slaves shipped across the Atlantic were for agricultural work, most of the slaves destined for the Muslim Middle East were for sexual exploitation as concubines, in harems, and for military service.
While many children were born to slaves in the Americas, and millions of their descendants are citizens in Brazil and the USA to this day, very few descendants of the slaves that ended up in the Middle East survive.
So, who is the oppressed, and who is the oppressor? If you ever watch any of the children’s programs aired on ‘palestinian’ television, the oppressors/aggressors are NOT the Israelis. You don’t see them teaching their kids to murder in the name of God, ‘praying’ to be a martyr, blowing themselves up, do you? In Israel, Muslims have the right to vote. Do Jews have that right in any muslim country….if there are any left in muslim countries, that is. Jews and Christians tend to be ‘disappeared’ in countries ruled by islam. In other words, they either get kicked out, or they are murdered outright. How many Armenians are left in Turkey?
So, when these yahoos celebrate….honor….whatever, ‘the day of catastrophe‘, calling for the destruction of a nation, and peoples, I have to wonder, just who is this allah, and his minions, that would continually slaughter the innocent? Always, the name Molech comes to mind, notorious for demanding the sacrifice of children. In reality, Molech was nothing more than a piece of stone, and it was the so called priests that demanded the death of children. Bunch of freakin’ evil pervs, in my mind….kind of like the mothers who gladly sacrifice their children for a made up ‘prophet’.
Oh, the guy was real alright, but he was no prophet, except of evil and doom. If you do any reading, you’ll know that the first half of that ‘holy book’ was all peace and love. The second half, was written by a madman. He didn’t get his way, people fought back, and they were slaughtered, all because they wouldn’t bow to his will.
When Hossein Shiekholeslam spoke of ideology, he, of course, was speaking of the ideology of islam. As Daniel Pipes said in 2003: There is no such thing as a moderate Islamist, for all Islamists share the same long-term goals; they differ only over means. The means in Israel, and many other areas of the Middle East is blowing people up, creating terror. On this side of the world, however, the means of the ‘takeover’ is quiet, creeping, and just as devastating, using our own courts and laws to implement their ideology, aided and abetted by the ‘go along to get along’ mindset.
My question is: If Iran, through the PA, attacks Israel, whose side will the current administration be on? They’ve already assisted in the takeover of several countries of the extreme islamists. Granted, the head honchos of those countries were not nice people, but those who are taking their place aren’t so nice either, and might be even worse in the grand scheme of things. There are members of the muslim brotherhood working in our government right now. We’re importing more and more muslims from war torn countries who refuse to assimilate, and want laws changed to accommodate their wants and needs, according to THEIR ‘religion’. Let a Christian try that!
The first speaker at the conference, according to IRNA, was the PA Ambassador in Tehran, Salah Zawawi, who said that the one and only way to soothe the Arabs’ pains and agony is the annihilation of the Zionist regime.
Annihilating anyone, or anything, is NOT going to sooth ‘the Arabs’ pain’. That pain has been caused by themselves. Have you ever seen the Arab areas of Israel? Think inner city slum…trash, filth, and blaming others for the living conditions they, themselves created.
So, when you think seriously about it, this administration will likely come out against Israel. The American people, on the other hand, are largely in support of Israel, and will stand with her through thick and thin. The Iranian regime might want to remember that! Also, they might want to remember Who gave the land to the Hebrews, and just who are the invaders.
