Muslims hate Jews??????????

 

In a display of crass insensitivity as well as an enduring sign that the government continues to pander to the politics of the Muslim-Jew divide, minister of state for external affairs E Ahamed did not mention the Nariman House attack in his statement to the UN Security Council last week. And this from an India which officially maintains that terror has no religion and all victims are equal. But was Ahamed’s omission of the Jewish house in his speech a function of the utterly improbable relationship that India enjoys with Israel or was it a function of the fact that the government didn’t want to “anger” Muslims by sympathising with the Jews. Sources said it could be both.[more..]

 

What a load of bullshit..Aren’t Jews human beings..And who the hell told the government that all muslims hate Jews uh?It is a fact that s some muslims who hate Jews ,some for a reason,some for no reason at all..The same hold true viceversa..But it is portrayed as if Jews and Muslims are enemies for eternity.And sadly some muslims/jews add  oil to this fire by stereotyping the other group.

 

 

Wonder if they really knew what Judaism and Zionism really meant.. In the words of Rabbi Weiss, Associate Rabbi at Neturei Karta International and Lecturer on Zionism, Judaism is a Godliness, Zionism is materialism. Zionists try to clothe their materialism in the cloth of religion, but it is false and criminal.  I am not to comment on Zionism as it is too complicated an issue.Not all Jews are Zionists.Original orthodox Jews are against Zionism.Even in case of hating a Zionist,I think it is never ending vicious cycle.The whole episode of God’s promised land,people who lived there fighting back etc etc etc..Its been six decades..I hope and pray that people learn to live in peace and co-operation,rather than killing 5 Jews and getting 50 Palastenians killed..

 

 

Moreover,I have seen some muslims hating Jews (remember,the viceversa too happens) for no reason.I hope the realize their mistake as it is not right for a Muslim  tp dislike others for their religion or race or other factors.To a Muslim, religious belief must come out of a person’s free choice, as God has also commanded not to use any kind of coercion in the matter of religion:

 

 

  • Let there be no compulsion in religion, truth stands out clear from error.(Al-Baqarah 2:256)

 

It is the conviction of a religion’s adherents, not the compulsion they can impose on others, that establishes its moral force on earth. This was a principle evident in the life and practice of the Prophet Muhammed peace be on him) as well as the Constitution of Madinah which he drew up with the multi-religious community of Madinah.This document guaranteed the freedom of worship to all religious communities. This was the spirit of the Qur’an that shines into the hearts of all its perceptive readers: the spirit of tolerance and understanding. Allah says in the Qur’an that He has made people into nations and tribes so that they can know and deal with each other in an equal temper of kindness and generosity:

 

  • O humankind! We created you from a single pair of a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know and deal with each other in kindness (not that you may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of God (is he who is) the most righteous of you, and God is Knower, Aware. (Al-Hujurat 49:13)

The above verse emphasizes the point that in Islam there is no place for intolerance, prejudice, or bigotry based on color, race, nationality or any such considerations. This all-encompassing tolerance of Islam applies to all elements of life and all affairs of Muslims.

 

The Muslim’s acceptance of the Jews and Christians (referred to in the Qur’an as People of the Book) as authentic religious communities is made clear:

  • And dispute not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong and injury. (Al-`Ankabut 29:46).

This verse tells Muslims that they should take all measures to avoid dispute, anger or other negative feelings between themselves and others.

 

What we see today is something political and religion has nothing to do with it. It is a shame that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has brought what was a centuries-long peaceful coexistence and appreciation of one another’s faiths between Jews and Muslims to an end. Needless to say, not all Muslims make this unfortunate tie-in, though many do.When a Muslim points fingers at a Jewish person just because they are Jewish, that Muslim is being hypocritical. We have issues when others point fingers at us saying “You guys flew planes into WTC and crashed it”.. Stereotyping will do no good in the long run. It wasn’t the entire race of Jews who made Israel, it was a group people who happened to have the Jewish faith.

 

Whatever,I wish Mr Ahmed hadn’t behaved immature and instead,He should have visited and consoled the relatives of those Jews who passed away in Mumbai terror attacks.That would have made a lot of difference and would have sparked some debates in the positive direction and helped to erase the stereotyping and prejudice among communities..but alaas,nobody is interested in uniting people..Its all the ‘Divide and Rule’ drama..All they want to to keep up the ‘hate’ spirit.Jews or Jains or Buddhists are Muslims,they are just human beings,with the same colour of blood running inside you and me.I apologize to those Jews on my community’s behalf and I pray that your relatives’ souls rest in peace and may you be able to come out of the sorrow as soon as possible..

 

Good day to all..
 

P.S:

A quote

 

Let me ask you this: If a lot of foreigners moved into your country and then, instead of living peacefully among you, took over the government, forced you out of your homes, cut most of the water going to you, gave you no voice in the government, searched you whenever you entered a house of worship, humiliated you in numerous ways, threatened you with guns and tanks, and so on, wouldn’t you—the original residents—be angry and fight back in any way you could? And if those foreigners who took over happened to be of a different religion than the original residents, would the fighting be because of the religious differences? Possibly, but not necessarily. Remember that in the case of Palestinians, not all of them are Muslims.

  1. lovely post Nimmy…and as always u speak for the right and just…

    If only those who fight over the issues of Islam and Juadism would remember that they all follow the same tenets and therefore are one…I think all this enemity could come to an end.

    The eid we just celebrated is mentioned in the Holy books of the Jews as well as the christians….what makes us hate each other so much then??

    Pinku,if deeply understood,IN THE RIGHT SENSE,we all are heading to the same destiny,in different ways..But nobody is ready to accept the fact that many roads can lead to an end..everybody is preoccupied and adamant taht his own path alone is the right one..Ah well,it is not going to ahppen until the end of universe..Atleast,we need to spread the message of oneness so that this earth doesn’t become hell :-/

    And see Pinku,it is not becuase of love for Islam that these people ahte Jews..They do so just for the sake of it..Bloody hypocrites-Nimmy

  2. What I liked about your posts is that they are well thought out. About people hating, well, hate is a vessel that people carry along with them and they keep doling out bits of it and if they had nothing to hate they would turn on their own family. In fact many of these hater people have poor relationship with their own family members and turn their hate outwards. I feel hating a whole race is a serious psychological problem with some people.
    When the Jew rabbi here was killed, it was a Muslim Imam who expressed his horror at it. I think he even knew the Jew rabbi because one lady here, an islamic scholar, she had arranged a cricket match for all the priests of different religions, imams, rabbis, priests, gurus etc and this cricket match she told me was a huge success. Everyone enjoyed themselves.

    Thanks for shraing the incident Nita..You said it right,people will find some or the other reason to hate and fight..

    I feel hating a whole race is a serious psychological problem with some people.

    Unfortunately,this sick disease is spreading to more and more hearts..Stereotyping and prejudice is the rule of the hour..Let us all hold hands and make sure that we don’t fall into it..Good day -Nimmy

  3. Well articulated. This is a point that looks so simple a nd easy to conceive, but not many subscribe to it. This world will be a better place only if people of different faiths understand and respect the other faith. Sometimes I think it’s a tall order since people of the same faith only don’t respect each other!


    The superoirty complex deep down in some hearts is the root cause of many issues..When I feel that you are inferior to me,and if I look down at you,there emerges the problem…This happens in every race,every antionality,every religion and well in every sector..We can’t remove it,but atleast we can keep it undercover by not letting them take over the majority hearts..and yes,we can do it..Thanks for visiting -Nimmy

  4. Such a wonderful, sensible post.. Wish our government was as mature as our citizens.. In trying to be ‘politically correct’ they have just ended up being inhumane and callous.. As for hating any community, I know for a fact that it is a very marginal number of people of any community that actually ‘hate’ people from any other community.. I do think that, most people do respect other communities and religions! And yes terror has no religion – so lets all apologise for our government’s insensitivity!

    True Smitha,only a marginal number of people hate each other..But see,we have a medium called ‘MEDIA; which picks on these morons and portray it as from a whole commmunity..Does Thogadia represent majority hindus?I would say no..Of all hindus I knew all my life,they never had and will never ever care for my religion,..Same goes for muslims or christians..Not many people are interested in this religious business..But since there are some evil people out there to take our silence for granted and talk on our behalf..That cannot happen..so we are compelled speak out..Even I belived that terror has no religion..But now I have chnaged my thought..Terror does have religion and people fight in the name of religion..Unless we try to adress the matter in the religious aspects,nothing is gonna change.. Good day -Nimmy

  5. Nimmy, i want to first know who are the “unbelievers”, “disbelievers” and “nonbelievers” according to your sacred scriptures?
    All those who don’t follow the last messenger on earth, i.e. Prophet Muhammad? There aplenty of verses spewing hatred on un/dis/nonbelievers, but please read the verse 48.29 which reads as follows:Muhammad is the messenger of Allah; and those who are with him are strong against Unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other.
    Aren’t Jews included in those unbelievers apart from other non-Muslims?

    And you forgot to mention some references of Jews. Check the verse no. 5:51 in Quran. It says:O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

    And also this “war time” verse no. 9.29:quran 9.29 – Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

    Now, jehadis think of themselves as being at war, and certainly get divine inspiration from this. They are at war for sure. And as you do not believe in hadiths, i wont paste them here.
    Anyways, Muslims do not hate jews, but if they read these sacred verses, certainly many will start hating Jews.

    Ameya 🙂

    It is simple..I am a disbeliever as far as Hinduism or Christianity is concerned and you are a disbeliever as far as Islam is concerned..Disbeliever/Kaffir/Kuffar etc etc etc is a simple word..That you don’t believe in Allah..Do you? If you don’t,why would one feel offended? Forget it,I don’t mid being called a disbeliver by my friend Latha,because I don’t brlivr in Lord Krishna..She is fine with it and i am fine with it..

    Regarding the verses that ‘spew haterd’. well,we will talk about it one by one,provided you have the time and patience .

    Firstly,tell me how did you do your education?Did you study in the order of Std :1, Std :2 .Std 3…..Std :12 Or did you study in the order of Std:6 ,Std2 ,Std9,….Std 3 ..I hope and I am sure that you studied the same way as I did,from 1 to 12..The numbering 1,2,3…12 has some significane right?Don’t you agree?Ok,now lets look at chapters in Quran..They are numbered;starting from 1 to…n. So,how are we expected to read and understand it? Starting from 1,we move forward to next consecutive verses right?

    Ok fine,now what happens if you get promoted from Std:3 to Std:9?Well,you will surely be unable to understand the classes as you missed the follow up,and since you don’t understand it properly,you start making assumptions on your won..am I wrong?So I guess,the right way is to follow classes in the right order..The same goes for Quran verses..Don’t jump form 2 to 9,9 to 45 ,78 to 34 etc etc…Since you and me don’t understand Arabic,we need to depend on Englih translation by different scholars,right? So how do we know if the english provided is the right one? then we look into different translation to see if three of them are speaking the smae thing.If you see difference,look out more for it from other sources ,may be in person or over internet..

    Sorry for the long rant,but I thought it was highly necessary to tell you not to hop through verses,but to read in order 🙂

    I/we have dealt with verse 9:29 in tons of details and references and inputs from many of my dear readers here
    https://nimis540.wordpress.com/2008/09/28/slay-all-infidelswowis-quran-so-violent/

    Will discuss the rest two verses later..I suggest you to read the link I provide below,regaring “Befriending Jews and Chirstians..I can’t say it much better that said in the link..Good day

    Does Islam Forbid Befriending Non-Muslims?

    -Nimmy

  6. ameya…

    1. In the verses, the term unbelievers was used to distinguish between the people of Mecca in those times who didn’t follow Muhammad.
    You must understand the verses contextually before quoting them. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Whether it’s in your hands or those of the terrorists.
    Contextually: “Kill the unbelievers” was said during a war. And it applies only in that case. At all other times, the first verse that Nimmy has quoted stand true.

    2. You may not know but Muhammad’s first wife Khadija was Jewish.

    Nimmy…

    Beautiful as usual!!!

    Thanks 1conoclast..Thanks for visiting 🙂 -Nimmy

    • @1conoclast:
      Where did you get this from “Khadija (RA) was Jewish” ??

      Ironically, the Qur’an does not forbid marrying Jews and Christians, if they by faith agree with Islam.

  7. thanks 1conoclast
    I’ve read so many verses spewing hatred on un/dis/nonbelievers that I couldn’t believe it. That’s why I was curious to know about them, and hence I asked.

    // You must understand the verses contextually before quoting them.//
    I was interested in knowing the verses contextually, and thats why I quoted them. I think without quoting them, it would have been very difficult for anyone to explain.
    //A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Whether it’s in your hands or those of the terrorists.//
    Absolutely agreed! And that is the reason why I am coming and asking here. I’ve heard different clarifications from 100 different people and there replies also inform me much about them. And BTW, That is also applicable to you, isn’t it? 😀

    I don’t understand that how come so much of hatred is showered on those un/non/disbelievers. Just because they did not follow Muhammad? I am surprised to see that those who “did not follow” Muhammad were showered this much of hatred. And yeah, the first verse I’ve pasted says the followers are strong against unbelievers, they do not kill and I didn’t know “Kill the unbelievers” is also a different verse somewhere!

    FYI, I knew earlier that Khadija was Jewish. What’s surprising for me are the two verses, 5:51 and 9:29.


    I am glad that you are asking question without the typical prejudice..HAng in there and I am sure we can sort out the difference in opinion… Cheers -Nimmy

  8. Thanks Nimmy for the kind reply. I need to check the way I put things across, as I think I am not sounding good. Please note I am not a saffronite at all, and I really don’t have any problem with your (or anyone else’s views) regarding Hinduism. You have your own complete freedom of thought. I only believe:

    “Humanity is above any religion and human values are above anything else. ”

    I don’t hate Muslims at all. They, like everyone else are born humans. But it is some ideology which shapes humans and makes them good or bad. I’ll honestly tell you that there are things in Hinduism which I dislike and are just too ancient, but there are things in Islam that I find are also encouraging violence and intolerance.

    Now, regarding un/dis/non-believer issue, even your and 1conoclast’s answers differ. I am least offended being called as disbeliever of Islam, but I am offended by the fact that there is a perennial and divine threat to disbelievers of Islam (i.e. Non-Muslims and Ex-Muslims)

    The explanation for 5:51 verse was a good one, though there is a certain degree of distinction for Jews and Christians. I’ll take care to put forth my arguments in a much better manner. Please go through this, it will appeal you. http://ameyawaghmare.wordpress.com/2008/09/06/what-is-god/

    Cheers! 😀

    🙂 Cheers..Keep coming.I am not a religious fundie,nor am i a scholar..But i am trying to find answers to questions..Do ask and in the process,i too will learn..Good day -Nimmy

    I don’t believe that Muslims hate Jews as such. The Qur’an calls them Ahle kitab and Sunni Muslims are OK with eating meat from an animal slaughtered by a Jew.

    Jews in Muslim lands were safe ferom the kind of persecution they faced in Europe. Zionists are a different kettle of fish altogether. Good Jews do not like them.

    hate is something that dwells within our minds and not our hearts… we have created the same for our convenience… and i totally abhore it… sometimes i wish the world was a better place to live in…

    *sigh!

  9. This makes clear that each and every step our government is taking are keeping the votes in their mind. He didn’t even mention the nariman house shows the culture of our ministers. I don’t know why our politicians are seeing the people as Hindu, muslim and christian and not as humans 😦

    And the last quote you have given is absolutely true. Its too difficult for Palestine to state their case as Israel was being backed by America which has different stand for different issues 😦

  10. Beautiful thoughts .

    “The Muslim’s acceptance of the Jews and Christians (referred to in the Qur’an as People of the Book) as authentic religious communities is made clear”

    What about those aren’t of the Book ?

    🙂 I wanted to reply to your comment much earlier..caught up with some job here..You seem to have missed the whole point..Never mind,but there is lot on what Quran says on how to be towards a non muslim..Do you think ‘real’ muslim pick and choose the ‘violent’ verses alone and picking makes then ‘true’ muslim? I was bit disturbed on reading your comment on a different blog..Never thought you as a matured person will think that way..Forget it..To each its own..

    31:18-19] “You shall not treat the people with arrogance, nor shall you roam the earth proudly. GOD does not like the arrogant showoffs. “Walk humbly and lower your voice – the ugliest voice is the donkey’s voice.”

    [4:148] GOD does not like the utterance of bad language, unless one is treated with gross injustice. GOD is Hearer, Knower.

    [49:11] O you who believe, no people shall ridicule other people, for they may be better than they. Nor shall any women ridicule other women, for they may be better than they. Nor shall you mock one another, or make fun of your names. Evil indeed is the reversion to wickedness after attaining faith. Anyone who does not repent after this, these are the transgressors.

    [41:34] Not equal is the good response and the bad response. You shall resort to the nicest possible response. Thus, the one who used to be your enemy, may become your best friend

    [O humankind! We created you from a single pair of a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know and deal with each other in kindness (not that you may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of God (is he who is) the most righteous of you, and God is Knower, Aware.] (Al-Hujurat 49:13)

    God does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from dealing kindly and justly with them. Indeed, God loves those who act justly. God only forbids you from those who fight you because of religion and expel you from your homes and aid in your expulsion – (forbids) that you make allies of them. And whoever makes allies of them, then it is those who are the wrongdoers.” (Quran 60:8-9)

    Will provide more verses and hadiths later..I gotta go now -Nimmy

    As u can see these verses do not just talk specifically about people of the book. Rather, they talk about humankind as a whole regardless of their religion.

    By Tom Knowlton
    dedicated to ‘ranting’ student of Radical Islam.

    The “Letter to the American People” allegedly authored by Osama bin Laden is a virtual ideological manifesto for Islamic extremists. It serves to outline the perceived grievances of radical Muslims against Israel and the West.

    The letter claims, “It is the Muslims who are the inheritors of Moses,” dating the conflict between Jews and Arabs back to the Biblical conflict between Abraham’s two children: his eldest son, Ishmael (from who Arabs are believed descended), and his younger son, Isaac (from who Jews are believed descended). Some Muslims believe that Isaac usurped Ishmael’s birthright.

    Likewise, prominent imams such as Abu Qatada, Omar Muhammad Bakri, and Abu Hamza regularly echo this claim that Arabs and Jews have been bitter enemies from the dawn of time.

    However, if one examines the history of the Middle East, there is very little evidence of constant warring and animosity between Jews and Arabs.

    In fact, when the city of Jerusalem fell to Christian Crusaders in 1099, the defenders of the holy city had been a combined force of Jews and Muslims. After the Crusaders captured the city, they massacred Muslim and Jewish citizens alike and left the survivors to flee Jerusalem. Not until the Muslim hero Saladin defeated the Crusaders in 1187, did the Jewish population even begin to return to Jerusalem.

    Jerusalem’s Jewish community continued to prosper under the Muslim Nahmanides in 1267. But the community’s true renaissance occurred during the 15th and 16th centuries, when a large influx of Jews were welcomed into Jerusalem by the Ottoman Empire after being expelled from Spain.

    For four centuries under Ottoman rule, Arab and Jewish neighborhoods peacefully coexisted. After the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in World War I, the region came under British mandate. The early days under the British also saw relatively peaceful coexistence continuing and manifesting itself in the form of Arab and Jewish neighborhoods springing up in the “garden neighborhoods” of Talpiot, Rehavia and Beit Hakerem.

    However, after over 700 years of peaceful coexistence, the true start of the Arab-Israeli conflict can be dated to 1920 and the rise of one man, Haj Amin Muhammad Al Husseini, the grand mufti of Jerusalem. As grand mufti, al Husseini presided as the Imam of the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, the highest Muslim authority in the British mandate.

    History shows Al Husseini to be a brutal man with aspirations to rule a pan-Arabic empire in the Middle East. He rose to prominence by actively eliminating those Jews and Arabs he considered a threat to his control of Jerusalem’s Arab population, and he heavily utilized anti-Jewish propaganda to polarize the two communities.

    In 1920 and again in 1929, Al Husseini incited anti-Jewish riots by claiming the Jews were plotting to destroy the Al Asqa mosque. The riots resulted in the massacre of hundreds of Jewish civilians and a virtual end to the Jewish presence in Hebron.

    The 1936 Arab revolt against the British is believed to have been at least partially funded by Nazi Adolf Eichmann, and Al Husseini again ordered armed Arab militias to massacre Jewish citizens.

    When British authorities finally quelled the rebellion in 1939, Al Husseini fled to neighboring Iraq and helped to orchestrate a 1941 anti-British jihad. As in Jerusalem, the British successfully put down the rebellion and Al Husseini fled to Nazi Germany.

    Al Husseini found the Nazis to be a strong ideological match with his anti-Jewish brand of Islam, and schemed with Hitler and the Nazi hierarchy to create a pro-Nazi pan-Arabic form of government in the Middle East.

    Dr. Serge Trifkovic documents the similarities between Al Husseini’s brand of radical Islam and Nazism in his book The Sword of the Prophet. He noted parallels in both ideologies: anti-Semitism, quest for world dominance, demand for the total subordination of the free will of the individual, belief in the abolishment of the nation-state in favor of a “higher” community (in Islam the umma or community of all believers; in Nazism, the herrenvolk or master race), and belief in undemocratic governance by a “divine” leader (an Islamic caliph, or Nazi führer).

    The Nazis provided Al Husseini with luxurious accommodations in Berlin and a monthly stipend in excess of $10,000. In return, he regularly appeared on German radio touting the Jews as the “most fierce enemies of Muslims,” and implored an adoption of the Nazi “final solution” by Arabs. After the Nazi defeat at El Alamein in 1942, Al Husseini broadcast radio messages on Radio Berlin calling for continued Arabic resistance to Allied forces. In time, he came to be known as the “Fuhrer’s Mufti” and the “Arab Fuhrer.”

    In March 1944, Al Husseini broadcast a call for a jihad to “kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history, and religion.”

    On numerous occasions, Al Husseini intervened in the fate of European Jews, most notably blocking Adolph Eichmann’s deal with the Red Cross to exchange Jewish children for German POWs.

    Moreover, Al Husseini personally recruited Bosnia Muslims for the German Waffen SS, including the Skanderberg Division from Albania and Hanjer Division from Bosnia. The Hanjer (Saber) Division of the Waffen SS was responsible for the murder of over 90 percent of the Yugoslavian Jewish population.

    SS leader Heinrich Himmler was so pleased with Al Husseini’s Muslim Nazis that he established the Dresden-based Mullah Military School for their continued recruitment and training. In 1944, Hanjer commandos parachuted into Tel Aviv and poisoned drinking wells in Jewish communities in an effort to stir up ethnic tensions.

    After the fall of Nazi Germany, Al Husseini fled to Cairo, Egypt in 1946 rather than face war crime charges for his actions in Yugoslavia. But he continued his operations.

    In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Al Husseini worked closely with a pro-fascist group in Egypt called Young Egypt. In 1952 Gamal Abdul Nasser, a prominent member of Young Egypt, was among military officers who seized control of the Egyptian government from King Fu’ad. Al Husseini is reported to have been responsible for bringing Otto Skorzeny, the Nazi commando once labeled by the OSS as “the most dangerous man in Europe,” into the employ of the Nasser government.

    Similarly, Al Husseini had a strong influence over the founding members of both the Iraqi and Syrian Ba’ath party. Strong evidence exists that al Husseini was instrumental in the arranging of Nazi war criminal Alois Brunner’s employment as an advisor to the Syrian general staff.

    However, al Husseini’s central role in the creation of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1964 is perhaps his most indelible mark on the Middle East today.

    The radical Imam was the spiritual mentor of the first chairman of the PLO, Ahmed Shukairi, and saw that much of his ideology was instilled in the organization. More importantly, Al Husseini used his extensive connections to recruit financial supporters for the PLO throughout the Arab world.

    Almost 30 years after al Husseini’s death in 1974, the Palestinian people still revere him as a hero and embrace his radical theology. The “Arab Fuhrer’s” close Nazi association and virulent anti-Semitism is perhaps the reason that Hitler’s Meinf Kampf is ranked as the sixth all-time bestseller among Palestinian Arabs.

    Several of his descendants remain active in Palestinian affairs today.

    Al Husseini’s grandson, Faisal Husseini, was part of the PLO since 1964 and served as minister without portfolio in the Palestinian National Authority, with responsibility for Jerusalem until his death in May 2001.

    The radical imam’s nephew, Rahman Abdul Rauf el-Qudwa el Husseini, has been a major player in Palestinian terrorism for almost 40 years. He was the guiding force behind the merging of the Fatah faction into the PLO. In 1990, Rahman Abdul Rauf el-Qudwa el Husseini was responsible for the Palestinian community’s support of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait.

    Most Mideast observers today recognize the younger Al Husseini by the secular name he adopted as his own in 1952, Yasser Arafat.

    By the late 1980’s many of the PLO’s radical Muslim financiers had become disillusioned with the increasingly secular nature of the Palestinian movement. Yasser Arafat’s support of Saddam Hussein in the early 1990s strongly angered and prompted many of these extremists in the Persian Gulf states to reduce or all together withdraw their financial backing of the PLO.

    An astute emerging Sunni terrorist, Osama bin Laden, capitalized upon Arafat’s political misstep and transformed his al Qaeda organization into the prime recipient of financial support from Sunni Muslim radicals. That funding has enabled bin Laden to wage terrorist attacks on western and Israeli interests for over a decade. His most recent “Letter to the American People” echoed al Husseini’s propaganda claim that “the Israelis are planning to destroy the Al Aqsa mosque.”

    The is little doubt that throughout history the Arabs and Jews have encountered the kind of friction that comes from any two distinct religious or ethnic groups sharing the same geography. However, that history has largely been one of relatively peaceful coexistence.

    The divergence from that pattern occurs in 1920 with the rise of a virulent anti-Semitic mufti of Jerusalem whose ideology embodied more similarities to that of Nazi Germany than to the historical Islam of Saladin or the Ottoman Turks.

    The wave of extremist Islam that has plagued the world in the latter days of the 20th century and into the opening days of the 21st, has little to do with ancient history or Islam. The cause lays largely at the feet of Haj Amin Muhammad Al Husseini, who utilized murder and anti-Semitism to consolidate his power over his fellow Arabs and further his personal quest to be caliph of the pan-Arab world.”

  11. Glad to know that . Well if the comments you are referring to , I guess , were written in a very agitated and incensed state . I apologize if I hurt your feelings . But the word “kaafir” still makes me mad .

    Hi all,sorry for late reply..Network connection is too bad these days…

    @Milind,Even I haven’t personally met a muslim who hate jews simply for no reason..But these is a tendency to stereotype the other group..And this news of Ahmed made me just look into it.I am glad you are back..Peace..

    @alice,I am glad that you came again 🙂 Thanks ..and yes,I agree with you.Life would have been great if there hadn’t been so much hate around..

    @Kanagu,so true..And yes,Palastein-Isreal conflict is not going to end anyday,as is our kashmir issue..Sorry for being a pessimist,but I ahve no hope..

    @Peter, Hi 🙂 I don’t have much idea what did you talk about..Was that some copy paste??

    Jews for Jesus! God Bless them!!!
    Love you brothers & sisters!

    Thank you for the assist on this
    information. You are a Blessing from Heaven.

    I have no idea what this is..Anyways,Good day to you..Do visit again 🙂

    @Kislay,I won’t blame you..Things around are so..But let me tell you,kafir is just a arabic word and i don’t know why you find it offensive..Do you belive in my God?No right..I don’t believe in yours too..So,we are kafirs to each others religion..This alien word has been misused to spread hatred..Have anybody called you so in your lifetime?I never called anybody “Hi kafir”,”Hello kafir”, “How are you kafir”..duh… 🙂 So,its just your inner feeling that you are being looked down by being a kafir..Kafir means disbeliever,and focourse you disbelive in Allah,as I disbelive in Krishna..So what the whole hype and hate all about ?? I hope you get out of this wrong notion soon,bcoz our country can’t afford to lose sane minds of people like you..

    Good day to all

  12. Allah is God in Arabic
    Krishna is an avatar of that very God.
    How the hell is it different . There is only one God . Why do people forget that .

  13. You did not respond to my comment . Am I to assume that you do believe that I am a kaafir, a non-believer after all ? Which is not the case actually , cause I do believe in God , but perceive Him in a manner different from you do . Please give me an honest answer .

  14. @kislay…u can call Allah by different names….if u consider Lord Krishna as god, what about Shiva, Bramha n all….and besides if u believe that theres only one God, theres no need to have idols and statues made…God lies in ur heart..

    @Nimmy
    Muslims are bound to hate Jews…if u read Hadees…u will read about the injustices they committed on Prophet Mohammad SAW…go thru hadees again and i swear u will hate them like anything…they are the most cunning ppl..u can see what those bastards are doing in gaza..learn from it…

    You seem to have no clue about Hinduism and its ways . It appears polytheistic , but is essentially monotheistic . Krishna is an avataar of Vishnu , who is the God of Preservation . Shiva is the God of Destruction and Brahma the God of Crreation . And these 3 along with millions others that we have are the different forms of the One God . And we have idols and statues because that is a symbol . That is how ordinary Hindus are supposed to understand the concept of God . And there are people who do pray without the need for idols as well . And most importantly , there is nothing wrong with it ,and as you said , God lies in your heart . Quite a few people perceive God in a manner different than yours , that doesn’t make their way wrong . Diversity exists in every aspect of Humanity and Life on Earth , in general . This is just a part of it . Water is known by different words in different languages , and exists in different forms as well , does that change its constitution ? How hard is it to understand that ?

    Thanks for sharing this Kislay..I knew it,but you put it in simple words.. See Kislay,neither you,nor Saadat is ‘wrong’ or ‘right’..Its all about perceiving or maybe how we portray God according to our faith.I have seen many many many people worshipping God bcoz of fear factor..They say prayers bcoz they think He will punish them otherwise..But I pray bcoz I think God is merciful and will answer my prayers and grant me wishes if i ask Him.I understand when you say that ‘God exists in different forms’,bcoz at times God is a guide to me,sometimes He is a friend to whom i can talk in solitude..That said,we can’t say that everybody should think the way it seems right to us..Afterall,its all faith and not any science.Everythign is fine as long as people tolerate and give space to each others feelings..I don’t like stereotyping and moreover i don’t think that everybody else in this world other than muslims are dumb or evil. Just take Saadat’s comment as part of “Diversity exists in every aspect of Humanity and Life on Earth ” 🙂 -Nimmy

  16. Wow . You responded to my comment . I am surprised . I thought I had offended you or something . Of course , there are no hard and fast rules , it is all about faith , and it is not an exact science . But having a preconceived notion about something without constituting an inquiry or researching , is rather vacuous, if not wrong . That is what I hate . No matter who does it . And no matter what happens , I shall never let go of my belief that there is One GOD , and all the religions are just different ways to perceive/contemplate/assimilate/attain Him .

    Kislay,I am really sorry that I hadn’t responded to your last comment.If you can trust me,believe that I had typed in long comment as a reply,and till this moment,i was under the impression that it had appreared online.Maybe I didn’t sumbit it..Wordpress has new dashboard theme and hence I hardly come on the real web page to read comments..It all apperas and it editable/reply to comments directly from dashboard..and hence though Saadat made a new comment on the post,i didn’t know that ihaven’t yet replied to you.Maybe you don’t find it convincing,but why would i be offended when you ahven’t said anything of that sort..Also,even if i am offended,I say it and talk my view about whatever it is..I had never deleted (except once during my intiail days when i deleted Aam admi’s comment,,ah,that was an immature act)or non-replied to any comments,even to those hot hot topics earlier.I ranted all this bcoz you are a friend to me and i am sorry you felt that i was ignoring you.I apologize..

    I am a 200 MHz speedy toddler’s mom 🙂 So please excuse me if i am late to reply to comments. To end the rant,I am not offended and i agree with you when you say that there is onw God and evreybody sees it in their own way,as simple as that..Its human nature to dominate each other,so i don’t expect anybody to think like me,but they should neither mind my business..Thatz my policy..

    Good article Nimmy.I always thought muslims are the most hated be it by hindues,jews or christians.Never hated jews or anyone from any other community.As you said,media is the one which is causing all the divide.To the poster Paul above,check these two websites by real torah jews instead of what you have quoted from zionist anti muslim websites.

    The prophet [Muhammad] said: ‘The time (of Resurrection) will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: 0 Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him!'”
