Calling things by it’s right name

So if we listen to various educated Muslim scholars we learn that it’s strictly forbidden for anyone to do “takfir”. What does it mean? You can not judge someone as not being a Muslim. (Equivalent to the christian church’s “excommunication“.) To exclude someone. In Islam the word for a Muslim who abandon faith is “Kufar”. A word terrorists uses to justify widespread killing over the world. Yes, children, Christians, Yezidis and most of all – Muslims.

To call someone “kufar” is to do “takfir”. And to do takfir is not okay. As condemning and killing people never can be okay no matter what.

Wise people calls it “Takfirism”. And it’s genius. The word Islam has nothing to do with what is going on in terms of terror. Islam can not explain it. Not prevent it and not stop it. But we can all work together for a beautiful world.

Not even the American president can tell the difference between Islamism and Islamic. And that’s the guy who “knew more than any general” about terrorism. Why not make things easier for the ones that like to talk but not learn?

If you were a Muslim…

What if people were looking at you with suspicion. You know what they’re thinking. You’re a terrorist. Or one to be. They can tell by your looks, even if you sometimes are a Sikh from India. They know. In fact, they often know you better than you do.

You are probably a criminal. The last thing you printed was probably a bomb making manual. Oh yes, the people around you can tell. Have you been to a hard ware store lately?How many AK’s do you have in the closet?

They sometimes asks you to go home to your country. Even if you were born here. Even if there never were another country. Even if this is your country that you proudly serve – you don’t belong.

Your religion teach hatred. Every now and then a Christian approaches with the truth. And you learn that they see you as a threat. Christianity is so much better. That you’ll understand when they praise the second amendment.

As you approach the security at an airport, did you budget for several hours of vetting? By now you must know that they use “inexperienced” personnel, that regrettably makes mistakes for hours. Well, if it comes out, that is.


Who ever you are reading this, no matter whom you’ve voted for or what ever religion you represent – don’t make people suffer. Don’t think your life, beliefs or politicians matters more. Stay human. Be an equal.

What ISIS did to Islam, and without vigilance it will happens again

 

Now don’t scroll down if you fear symbols.

If you ask yourself, how can we create fear to the extent that armies run? Very few could come up with a easy answer. But someone did. The Iraqi army had 30,000 soldiers and another 30,000 federal police stationed in the city of Mosul, facing a 1,500-member attacking force.The army fled and left every little peace of equipment they had.

The flag. The black and white one promoted in propaganda films, shown on every broadcast and visible all over social media. It became the symbol of Daesh, isis, jihad and everything bad that ever existed. One might think the text on the flag is something terrible.  But it’s part of hijacking Islam. The flag was used by Abu Muslim in a shia uprise and have existed since 747 ad. The flag has been used in contemporary islamism and jihadism since the late 1990s

So what does it say? The white banner at the top of the flag reads: “There is no god but Allah [God]. Mohammad is the messenger of Allah.” This phrase is a declaration of faith used across Islam, and is known as the shahada.

Daesh-Flag-300x170

Underneath is a white circle emblazoned with black writing reading “Mohammed is the messenger of God”, which is meant to resemble the Prophet’s seal, similar to that used to close an envelope.

So if you’re not a Muslim this flag probably gives you the chill. It stands for death (as in genocide), tyranny, hatred, and so many ungodly actions that it’s incomprehensible. And if you’re a Muslim (and not were killed by them) you probably think the same.

It is way to easy to steal a flag these days.

 The word Islam means submission, purity and peace. I’ve been asked by Islamophobic people: Isn’t it terrible? Submission? Who does that?Well, I dare to say that if you have a belief, you submit to it, right? So does all religious followers in various ways. Christians call themselves followers. How do you follow a belief without submitting to it?

If there were commandments in Islam the first one would probably be the same as in Christianity – There is only one God. Or La ilaha illallah, (Link: Song in arabic) in arabic. The oneness of God is called Tawheed. The word Allah means God. In a Arabic bible the word for God is Allah.

I welcome your thoughts on my writings. 🙂

 

Short news about: Daesh

Tabqa-Dam-in-Syria.
Tabqa Dam in Syria

Daesh tries to survive through forming new groups. “Salman al-Farisi” is one of them aiming for Iran. 200 children have been kidnapped in west of Mosul to pose shield to the Daesh fighters.

Mosul (IraqiNews.com) The Islamic State has killed its judge of the so-called Tigris State for refusing to partake in an attack on security forces, a local source from Nineveh has said.

The traditional black clothing have changed. Either they’ve retrieved civilian fighters or they try to “blend in” but they wear western clothes and sometimes uniforms looking like Iraqi forces.

Muhedi Jayila, Commander of the Syrian Elite Forces, said in an exclusive interview with ARA News that they have joined the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces SDF campaign to liberate Raqqa Governorate from Daesh (ISIS) militants.

Tabqa Dam, south west of Raqqah overtake have been delayed due to propaganda from Daesh that it could collapse. The information wasn’t truth. The Tabqa Dam will be taken over and SDF will continue it’s way to Raqqah.

No, this is not religion

 

Iraqi news
Clich the picture to watch the film

A Iraqi soldier helps a child who was kidnapped by Daesh and strapped with a suicide belt. If you think this have anything to do with religion, think again.

 

 

Islam and terrorism, it’s time to go deeper – come on!

bönenish

I start with a excellent quote distinguishing Muslims from terrorism, written by Ehab Shawky:

“The way to distinguish between them is easier than you think, those who try to occupy your mind with their opinions, and create from you a duplicated copy of themselves are false scholars; while those who try to liberate your mind and urge you to learn, think, and criticize according to logical disciplines are the ones from whom you should seek council and knowledge.”

I love that quote. It works with extremism in a broader perspective. But let’s stick to Daesh (calling them anything else would acknowledge a caliphate and a state).

When the wrong person get a too big audience, things get out of hand. It’s not news, and it’s not the first time. Every now and then it happens. David Koresh an American counterpart, Adolf Hitler, European in Europe. They’re known for their actions and ideologies.

The Daesh fighters are brainwashed with what they think is Islam. All it’s fighters gets education on fighting and “Shariah”.  Suggested by a person that claim to have all the answers in the world. The quality of the education seem to have it’s flaws. Both on fighting and Islam. But once on the ground, provided a gun and a “wife” and promised a brotherhood and benefits in the afterlife there ‘s no choice. Numerous fighters with doubts have been killed by Daesh them selves.

Daesh objectives are 1, to convert or eradicate Shia since they’re not considered Muslims. And that it also why they claim not to kill Muslims. 2, Establish the caliphate expanding from Syria and Iraq, with the power to call on every Muslim to come and fight. 3, In times of defeat, call upon followers all over the world to hurt the societies the best they can. (As seen in London)

So what are your friends up to? Withdrawing, hanging in front of the computer, studying something built to appeal first and foremost young men? Daesh targets people that are drawn to the dream of being respected. Being a hero. They provide instructions and guiding, promises of being recognized as a feared warrior all over the world. Just like those computer war games. Don’t underestimate it’s powers.

Now, if that was Islam there would be civil war in every country on earth. If every Muslim were to take this one man for their leader and righteous one – there would be chaos. But read the quote again. We all have a responsibility to be critical. To question things. That is how we learn and can differ right from wrong. It goes for all mankind. All religions. All cultures and ideologies. Leaders must be chosen wisely.

“Look what happend in Swe…” sorry, London

Terrorism hijacks the media headlines again. A maniac with a car and a knife. And yes, it has the hallmarks of Daesh. The terror message has gone out over the world, use what you can, do what you can where ever you are. Kill anyone. No big plans, no logistics, no funding. Now it’s about lone distant followers.

The messages from Daesh and it’s followers are everywhere. I’ve come by a couple of blogs here at Word-press.

These acts are meaningless. They will not change any political structures. It makes democracy stronger and people come together.

But it causes major trauma to affected families. My heart goes out to children who lost a parent, to the ones who lost a child or a spouse.
