    • Paul Marcel-Rene The money wasted on this could have fed how many poor? Built how many houses in Gaza?

    • Beautiful Islam The money used in building white house and other lavish buildings could also be used to fed many poor.
      in these houses everyone is Equal and it is for all muslims. not poor or rich, not black or white.
      the money spent on your president and his family every minute can fill million stomach, ever thought? Muslims give zakah to help poo and it is Fard on them while your people take zakah. even from poor.

    • Beautiful Islam PAUL do you want me to mention the money spent in wars and how it can be utilised for poor

      First, the White House was built more than a 100 years ago. And, in the USA, everyone IS equal. This is the only country this is true. If you mean we all pay taxes, then yes, and this is fair and just. But, you are making a false compar…See More

    • Beautiful Islam first paul stop your deception by using muslim terminology
      second you are a christian Patriot so everything you will say will be justified to you

      THIRD if you have made such a dreadful comparison then read
      all your churches will fall in thesame category as per your words

      FOURTH
      EVERY MUSLIM HAS BEEN ORDERED TO PAY ZAKAH WHICH IS CHARITY

      IF EVERY PERSON WILL START PAYING ZAKAH LIKE MUSLIMS THEN THERE WOULD BE NO POOR LEFT IN THE WORLD

      FIFTH USA was a country of apartheid so its history is really blotted which has been tried to be white washed recently

      SIXTH
      money spent in wars is the worst example you have been trying to debase

    • Paul Marcel-Rene Sorry, you made not one point in this last comment. And yes, everything I say IS VALID, not because I am Christian or a Patriot, but because its the truth.

      No. “ALL” churches will NOT fall in this catagory. Plus, I am talking about one building, one shirl idol building built rather than stating all of islam is guilty of this. And with it being on display, it meets the idol criteria.

      Zakah is NOT enough. Ask the starving children in Somalia, the homeless in Gaza (though, there is no real support for the palestinians because then there would be no suffering and no demonizing Israel so it is in the best interest of the umma for the palestinians to suffer for allah) that this particular building is more important then they are.

      If every person paid zakah, there would still be poor unless you’re proposing spreading all wealth evenly amongst all people. That is called the religion on communism not islam. And, the governments of islamic dominated countries aren’t going to give up their wealth for the poor.

      The USA was never a country of apartheid even if there was an ugly chapter in our history. Examples of aparteid that exist today are consentrated in the Middle East in islamic dominated countries that are persecuting Christians and Jews and others.

      Again, it is the government who spent money on wars, not the umma, and almost every war involving the USA has been just and right. (No we shouldn’t have been in Iraq or Afghanistan.)

Comment to Islamophobia Site

I had planned to not comment because I have yet to decide if your site is part of the Islamic Apologists that seeks to deceive uneducated Muslims and non-Muslims or are sincere yet incorrect in your understanding of the true nature of Islam, an incorrect understanding that is true for the majority of Muslims.

But your comment above forced my response: “please do not spread falsehood about a religion without completely researching on it. Please read the Qura’an completely and then make an opinion about it.”

It is not just the Qu’ran that is the essence of Islam. The actions of Mohammad and sayings are equal, perhaps greater, that forms the ideology/theology of Islam. In addition, the interpretation of his teachings, Hadith, are the “official” guides to proper behavior. The best record for free can be found here: http://hadithsahihbukhari.com and is downloadable.

Sahih al-Bukhari (Arabic: صحيح البخاري‎), as it is commonly referred to, is one of the SIX canonical hadith collections of Islam. These prophetic traditions, or hadith, were collected by the Persian Muslim scholar Muhammad ibn Ismail al-Bukhari, after being transmitted orally for generations. Muslims view this as their most trusted collection of hadith and it is considered the most authentic book after the Qur’an.

Taken together, and with much study, a far different interpretation of Islam emerges than you present. There is no radical Islam. There is Islam and there is non-practicing or weak Islam that the majority practice.

I look forward to reviewing the rest of your entries, but hope you will allow correction of errors and perhaps a reform Islam will emerge that really does have as its essence much of what you write.

Islamic Countries Dominate Open Doors 2011 World Watch List

Islamic Countries Dominate Open Doors 2011 World Watch List

SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 5, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — Despite Communist North Korea topping the annual Open Doors World Watch List (WWL) for the ninth consecutive year, the most dangerous countries in which to practice Christianity are overwhelmingly Islamic ones.

That paragraph should be printed on a little business card, convenient for us to hand out to Christian appeasers who fantasize that our friends in the henna beards are either

1. Victims of racism, poverty, and social exclusion (liberal Christian dhimmis)
2. Enraged by American policies and Zionist oppression (ultra-leftist and ultra-rightists) or
3. Our future allies in the war against the hedonist Culture of Death (frustrated theocrats sunk in impotent rage).

Perhaps on the other side of the card we can print the following sura from the Qur’an:

9:29. Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger 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 Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

The texts would fit very nicely, and the bottom of each side could read: “To learn more, visit Jihadwatch.org. Or visit Saudi Arabia and try to find a church or synagogue.”

In case people have further questions, it might be handy to have, in leaflet form–or loaded on your Blackberry or iPhone–the text of the Pact of Umar, the model for the “toleration” sharia–an intrinsic part of Islam that every major Muslim group, including CAIR and ISNA endorses–grants Christians once it’s in force. Again, it’s a short, informative text.

The Pact of Umar

(promises conquered Christians make in return for Muslim protection):
* We shall not build, in our cities or in their neighborhood, new monasteries, churches, convents, or monks’ cells, nor shall we repair, by day or by night, such of them as fall in ruins or are situated in the quarters of the Muslims.

* We shall keep our gates wide open for passersby and travelers. We shall give board and lodging to all Muslims who pass our way for three days.

* We shall not give shelter in our churches or in our dwellings to any spy, nor bide him from the Muslims.

* We shall not teach the Qur’an to our children.

* We shall not manifest our religion publicly nor convert anyone to it. We shall not prevent any of our kin from entering Islam if they wish it.

* We shall show respect toward the Muslims, and we shall rise from our seats when they wish to sit.

* We shall not seek to resemble the Muslims by imitating any of their garments, the qalansuwa, the turban, footwear, or the parting of the hair. We shall not speak as they do, nor shall we adopt their kunyas.

* We shall not mount on saddles, nor shall we gird swords nor bear any kind of arms nor carry them on our persons.

* We shall not engrave Arabic inscriptions on our seals.

* We shall not sell fermented drinks.

* We shall clip the fronts of our heads.

* We shall always dress in the same way wherever we may be, and we shall bind the zunar round our waists

* We shall not display our crosses or our books in the roads or markets of the Muslims. We shall use only clappers in our churches very softly. We shall not raise our voices when following our dead. We shall not show lights on any of the roads of the Muslims or in their markets. We shall not bury our dead near the Muslims.

* We shall not take slaves who have been allotted to Muslims.

* We shall not build houses overtopping the houses of the Muslims.

* (When I brought the letter to Umar, may God be pleased with him, he added, “We shall not strike a Muslim.”)

* We accept these conditions for ourselves and for the people of our community, and in return we receive safe-conduct.

* If we in any way violate these undertakings for which we ourselves stand surety, we forfeit our covenant [dhimma], and we become liable to the penalties for contumacy and sedition. [That penalty is death–ed.]

Given the primary sources they’re working from, the text of the divine “Revelation” they follow, and the normative historical exemplars they imitate, modern Muslims across the world are doing a much better job of living up to their religion than most Christians are–as the Open Doors report demonstrates:

Of the top 10 countries on the 2011 WWL, eight have Islamic majorities. Persecution has increased in seven of them. They are Iran, which clamps down on a growing house church movement; Afghanistan, where thousands of believers cluster deep underground; and Saudi Arabia, which still refuses to allow any Saudi person to convert to Christianity.

Others are lawless Somalia, ruled by bloodthirsty terrorists threatening to kill Christian aid workers who feed Somalia’s starving, impoverished people; tiny Maldives, which mistakenly boasts it is 100 percent Islamic; Yemen with its determination to expel all Christian workers; and Iraq, which saw extremists massacre 58 Christians in a Baghdad cathedral on Oct. 31. Of the top 30 countries, only seven have a source other than Islamic extremists as the main persecutors of Christians.

The top 10 in order are North Korea, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Maldives, Yemen, Iraq, Uzbekistan and Laos, which has a Communist government. Iraq is new to the top 10 list while Mauritania dropped out, going from No. 8 to No. 13.

The country that saw the greatest deterioration of Christian religious freedom in the reporting period from Nov. 1, 2009, through Oct. 31, 2010, was Iraq, jumping from No. 17 to No. 8. The country has seen a Christian exodus in recent years, with an estimated 334,000 Christians remaining in this ancient cradle of Christianity, a drop of more than 50 percent since the 2003 toppling of Saddam Hussein’s regime. The main reason why Christians are fleeing is organized violence by an extremist militia, especially in the northern city of Mosul and in the capital Baghdad, in an attempt to cleanse these areas of its Christian presence. At least 90 Christians were martyred last year in Iraq while hundreds more were injured in bomb and gun attacks. More killings have taken place in the past two weeks. [Mission accomplished, GWB!]

The country with the largest Christian community on the WWL’s top 15 is Pakistan with more than 5 million believers. Pakistani Christians also faced a sharp erosion of their religious liberty with the country leaping from No. 14 to No. 11 on the current list. Twenty-nine Christians were martyred in the reporting period with at least one killing occurring every month. Four Christians were sentenced to long terms in jail for blasphemy against Islam, at least 58 Christians were kidnapped, more than 100 Christians were assaulted and 14 churches and properties were damaged.

Other countries that rose markedly on the new WWL were Afghanistan, up from No. 6 to No. 3, especially in the wake of ugly demonstrations when footage of Muslims being baptized was shown on network television. Dozens of Christians from the tiny Afghan church have had to move due to subsequent death threats, and in August a 10-person medical aid team from a Christian organization was slaughtered. [Nice work, President Obama. The “surge” is working!]

The year’s grisliest headlines were found in No. 26 Nigeria, however, where a staggering 2,000 Christians lost their lives in riots caused by Muslim extremists in some of the northern states in the country. Tension has been growing for more than a generation in northern Nigeria, and escalated after 1999 when 12 northern states adopted Sharia (strict Islamic law). On Christmas Eve Compass Direct News reported the killing of a Baptist pastor and five other Christians in northern Nigeria. More killings of Christians were also reported in the last two weeks. [Christianity is the white man’s religion; Islam brings equality and justice. But which religion is it that’s killing the most black people every year?]

Egypt is ranked No. 19 on the WWL and could be a focus of persecution this year as 21 Christians were killed in a bomb blast on New Year’s Day outside the Church of Two Saints in Alexandria. [Pope Benedict, stop interfering. We’ve got the situation under control.]

At this point in the discussion, it’s worth stepping back and remembering what “dhimmitude” denotes. It means “protection,” and now we know in what sense that word is meant: in the sense of protection racket. When the Westies used to barge into bars in my mother’s old neighborhood, Hell’s Kitchen, and offer “protection” to the owners, it was clear to everyone involved from whom the hapless businessmen were being protected: from the Westies. Given the many ways in which Muhammad, once he arrived in Medina and came to power, acted like a gangster, it’s no surprise that his followers continue to carry on like a gang of thugs. When Islamic apologists insist that any discussion of Islam’s crimes against “unbelievers” of every creed or none is hateful Islamophobia, it’s best to remember how Mafia lawyers used to rant about ethnic stereotypes–typically as they addressed a jury, defending some “mook” who’d shot his cousin in the back of the head. Then they’d go home, open a jug of Gallo red, and watch The Sopranos. I wonder if Reza Aslan and Ibrahim Hooper, after a long, hard day of lying, stoke up the shisha and kick back to enjoy the video footage from Alexandria and Baghdad….
