Someone thrashed interfaith bullshit peddled by Huffington Post
Response to: “4 Goals for Muslim College Students in 2016”, Zainab Abdali Pakistani, college student, occasional writer in The Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/zainab-abdali/4-goals-for-muslim-college-students_b_9227770.html?1455563811
Our response is written in red.
“The year 2016 is one of both regression and progress, a time when anti-Muslim bigotry has reached new levels but also a time when the people speaking out against such bigotry have gotten louder and less apologetic. This is a year when we have presidential candidates openly spewing hateful rhetoric against Muslims but it is also the year we see more and more Muslims challenging stereotypes and succeeding in many fields, whether it be politics or journalism or activism.”
Bigotry for one – is constructive questioning of political ideology for another. You say bigotry – I say legitimate concern. Have you ever thought about why there is no Buddhism-o-phobia? There are more Buddhists living in the West than Muslims (before Merkel’s ethnic suicide). Why Buddhists do not occupy our news and cause fear? If you peddle the lie that Islam is just another religion and there are lots of anti-islam bigots out there, why those bigots are not against Buddhists? I will clarify that for you – because Islam is not just another religion. Islam is a Political ideology with the goal of conquering the world and make everyone Muslim or kill.
“As a college student, I see Muslim students being exceptional in their academic fields and being outstanding campus leaders, despite being constantly asked to apologize for the actions of extremist groups.”
Yes, sweetie, if you were a member of a Nazi party living in USA, you would also have to be apologizing constantly: ‘I am am Nazi, but I am peaceful, it is just a small proportion of Nazis are bad’. It is all about membership – memberships can be entered and ceased.
“Young Muslims are in a position to challenge the narrative surrounding Muslim-Americans in this country and to change the environment the next generation grows up in, starting from practical and meaningful steps they can take on campus.”
If you are Muslim and follow Koran, the only way you should be changing the environment is making everyone a Muslim. Or do you disagree with Koran? Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).
“This ties back to having a stronger and more open Muslim group on campus. Racism and gender equality are two of the real issues that we need to address, and more comprehensively than by just saying “There is no racism in Islam” or “Women were given rights in Islam fourteen hundred years ago”. It’s easier to brush these issues off or to talk about them in abstract but this will only lead to these problems getting worse and marginalized students feeling more and more unwelcome.”
Women in Islam were given rights…… To be stoned for being raped, receive less inheritance than men and forced to wear a garb. Which part of Islamic teachings you disagree? Bukhari (48:826) – Women have a deficiency of intelligence, meaning that their decisions will not be comparable to a man’s. Or this one? Quran (2:228) – “and the men are a degree above them”. Western feminists agree with this, so you are not alone, sweetheart.
A college campus is a great place to tackle these issues because conversations about race and gender are happening all around us. Muslim students need to be a part of these conversations both within the Muslim community and with other groups. These conversations are not easy or comfortable, and there is a LOT of work to be done, but we need to start and keep going. As long as these problems exist, we need to keep working on them.
What race is Islam? If it is a race, that those who leave Islam change their race?
