The BBC has morphed from what was once a brilliant and accurate news service into a post-modern, British-hating, Christian-loathing, and Islam-promoting propaganda service at UK taxpayers expense. Surely in a democracy you decent folks of the UK can find a way to force your government to end the BBC as a publicly funded institution. Or is the UK now truly a government with a people instead of the other way around?
I do not have enough time left in this life to write up all that is wrong with these two tests. But lets see if we can cover at least a few points and argue about which are the most important.
1. The questions for Islam are clearly designed to show that Islam in fact better represents secular values and ironically even Christian ones better than Christianity does according to the test on Christianity. It does so with outright misrepresentation and, dare I say, lie, lies of omission, mostly, such as in question #1, where it makes a claim to racial and human equality and fails to mention the dozens of places where Mohamed is reputed to have said that Jews are sons of monkeys and pigs, where women are created deficient and sharia law requires two and sometimes four female witnesses to equal one man, which never happens in reality, or how blacks are invariably referred to as slaves wherever they appear in Islamic scripture, as Arabic does not have a word for blacks which does not mean slaves, not 1400 years ago and not now.
Here are a few choice omissions from question 1 of the Muslim test:
Muslims are told that Africans have hearts grosser than a donkey (Surah 9:61) . Ishaq: 243 I heard the Apostle say: Whoever wants to see Satan should look at Nabtal! He was a black man with long flowing hair, inflamed eyes, and dark ruddy cheeks . Allah sent down concerning him: To those who annoy the Prophet there is a painful punishment. [Surah 9:61] Gabriel came to Muhammad and said, If a black man comes to you his heart is more gross than a donkeys.Yet and still Louis Farrakan and his followers will tell us the lie that Christianity is the white mans religion.
Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allahs Apostle said, You should listen to and obey, your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin. (Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 89, Number 256)Hadith; vol.9:162,163: Muhammad warned that dreams of black women meant disease was forthcoming. Black Muslims today are so uninformed that they dont even understand that Muhammad had many black slaves and called them raisin heads (Hadith vol.1:662, vol.9:256)
Here is an image of a slave market in Yemen:
2. Question #2 is nicely answered by my response to #1. Astonishing deception practiced by the BBC to try and force British people to loathe their own history and accept Islam as some warped, rewritten thing of itself. As if somehow Islam were more politically correct and multicultural and open to science and reason than they themselves are. Utterly horrifying. For a little more clarity on Islam and racism enjoy the following links:
Question #2 on the Islamic test concerning equality of men and women in Islam? A joke beyond measure.
Here is a little Koran for ya:
10. The Quran in Sura (Chapter) 2:223 says:
Your women are your fields, so go into your fields whichever way you like . . . . (MAS Abdel Haleem, The Quran, Oxford UP, 2004)*
9. Husbands are a degree above their wives.
The Quran in Sura 2:228 says:
. . . Wives have the same rights as the husbands have on them in accordance with the generally known principles. Of course, men are a degree above them in status . . . (Sayyid Abul ALa Maududi, The Meaning of the Quran, vol. 1, p. 165)
8. A male gets a double share of the inheritance over that of a female.
The Quran in Sura 4:11 says:
The share of the male shall be twice that of a female . . . . (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 311)
7. A womans testimony counts half of a mans testimony.
The Quran in Sura 2:282 says:
And let two men from among you bear witness to all such documents [contracts of loans without interest]. But if two men be not available, there should be one man and two women to bear witness so that if one of the women forgets (anything), the other may remind her. (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 205).
6. A wife may remarry her exhusband if and only if she marries another man and then this second man divorces her.
The Quran in Sura 2:230 says:
And if the husband divorces his wife (for the third time), she shall not remain his lawful wife after this (absolute) divorce, unless she marries another husband and the second husband divorces her. [In that case] there is no harm if they [the first couple] remarry . . . . (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 165)
5. Slavegirls are sexual property for their male owners.
The Quran in Sura 4:24 says:
And forbidden to you are wedded wives of other people except those who have fallen in your hands [as prisoners of war] . . . (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 319).
4. A man may be polygamous with up to four wives.
The Quran in Sura 4:3 says:
And if you be apprehensive that you will not be able to do justice to the orphans, you may marry two or three or four women whom you choose. But if you apprehend that you might not be able to do justice to them, then marry only one wife, or marry those who have fallen in your possession. (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 305)
3. A husband may simply get rid of one of his undesirable wives.
The Quran in Sura 4:129 says:
It is not within your power to be perfectly equitable in your treatment with all your wives, even if you wish to be so; therefore, [in order to satisfy the dictates of Divine Law] do not lean towards one wife so as to leave the other in a state of suspense. (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 381)
2. Husbands may hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives (quite apart from whether they actually are highhanded).
The Quran in Sura 4:34 says:
4:34 . . . If you fear highhandedness from your wives, remind them [of the teaching of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. God is most high and great. (Haleem, emphasis added)
1. Mature men are allowed to marry prepubescent girls.
The Quran in Sura 65:1, 4 says:
65:1 O Prophet, when you [and the believers] divorce women, divorce them for their prescribed waitingperiod and count the waitingperiod accurately . . . 4 And if you are in doubt about those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, (you should know that) their waiting period is three months, and the same applies to those who have not menstruated as yet. As for pregnant women, their period ends when they have delivered their burden. (Maududi, vol. 5, pp. 599 and 617, emphasis added) 6:41 PM
Islam also teaches that women are deficient mentally and spiritually (Bukhari, Vol 1, Hadith 301); therefore her witness is worth half a mans (Sura 2:282).
O womenfolk, if you knew the rights that your husbands have over you, every one of you would wipe the dust from her husbands feet with her face. [Al-Hashimi, M., The Ideal Muslimah, (1996), chapter 4].
*10 says women (nisa), not wives (zawaj), so it unarguably includes daughters, sisters, and mothers.
I could go on for pages about these tests. Please contact the BBC if you are British and your government and demand that the BBC no longer be taxpayer funded. Hell, create a taxpayer strike or revolt till the BBC is cut loose.
Please see this excellent article on Gates of Vienna on this despicable and perhaps even totalitarian effort by the BBC. The distortion of truths and the emotional and historical engineering here is of a magnitude that I believe is worthy of a new level of outrage.
Thank you very much jdamn for finding these Koranic references for me. One wonders why so many of us Infidels have had to become experts in seventh-century books of loathsome hatred in order to combat it but there you have it. Thank you again.
Eeyore for Vlad.(...more)
