Obama håller fast vid att islam är fredens religion

Obama höll  i går ett tal vid ett möte som behandlade våldsam extremism. Han vägrade se kopplingen mellan islam och terrorismen i dagens värld.
"Clash of civilizations" mindset is real in Muslim world, Obama says (Jerusalem Post)

Några plock ur talet:

Around the world, and here in the United States, inexcusable acts of violence have been committed against people of different faiths, by people of different faiths -- which is, of course, a betrayal of all our faiths.  It's not unique to one group, or to one geography, or one period of time. 

-Av de terrorattacker som idag utförs över hela världen hämtar de allra flesta sin inspiration och motivation från islam och koranen.

Al Qaeda and ISIL and groups like it are desperate for legitimacy.  They try to portray themselves as religious leaders -- holy warriors in defense of Islam.  That’s why ISIL presumes to declare itself the “Islamic State.”  And they propagate the notion that America -- and the West, generally -- is at war with Islam.  That’s how they recruit.  That’s how they try to radicalize young people.  We must never accept the premise that they put forward, because it is a lie.  Nor should we grant these terrorists the religious legitimacy that they seek.  They are not religious leaders -- they’re terrorists.  (Applause.)  And we are not at war with Islam.  We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.  (Applause.)  

Now, just as those of us outside Muslim communities need to reject the terrorist narrative that the West and Islam are in conflict, or modern life and Islam are in conflict, I also believe that Muslim communities have a responsibility as well.  Al Qaeda and ISIL do draw, selectively, from the Islamic texts.  They do depend upon the misperception around the world that they speak in some fashion for people of the Muslim faith, that Islam is somehow inherently violent, that there is some sort of clash of civilizations. 

Of course, the terrorists do not speak for over a billion Muslims who reject their hateful ideology.  They no more represent Islam than any madman who kills innocents in the name of God represents Christianity or Judaism or Buddhism or Hinduism.  No religion is responsible for terrorism.  People are responsible for violence and terrorism.  (Applause.)   

-De islamska terroristerna är inga galna ensamvargar. De backas upp av lärda muslimer som motiverar dem utgående från koranen och Muhammed som förebild.'

And to their credit, there are respected Muslim clerics and scholars not just here in the United States but around the world who push back on this twisted interpretation of their faith.  They want to make very clear what Islam stands for.  And we’re joined by some of these leaders today.  These religious leaders and scholars preach that Islam calls for peace and for justice, and tolerance toward others; that terrorism is prohibited; that the Koran says whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind.  Those are the voices that represent over a billion people around the world.

-Det är bra att det finns muslimska ledare som tar avstånd från våld. Men... Det finns flera tiotals muslimska stater där mänskliga rättigheter inte respekteras, där människor av annan tro inte respekteras utan förföljs och i värsta fall dödas.
Ifall islam är den fredens och rättvisans religion som Obama försöker inbilla oss att den är så borde det väl på något sätt synas i länder som styrs i enlighet med islams principer, t. ex. i Pakistan, Iran, Sudan,  eller Saudi Arabien. Men faktum är att det finns många likheter mellan situationen i dessa länder och situationen på områden där IS verkar.Vissa gör bara mindre väsen av sina grymheter.

Här ett exempel på vad islam i Köpenhamn står för:

Hajj Saeed, Imam of the Al-Faruq Mosque in Copenhagen, Denmark, rejected interfaith dialogue in a Friday sermon delivered on February 13, one day before the Copenhagen terror attacks. Imam Saeed explained that the Prophet Muhammad waged war against his Jewish neighbors in Al-Madina rather than engage in dialogue with them. The sermon was posted on the Internet by the Scandinavian chapter of Hizb ut-Tahrir.

Following are excerpts:

Hajj Saeed: Today, I will discuss the old-new topic of interfaith dialogue. The people responsible for interfaith dialogue want to make all religion equal. They want to equate Truth and Falsehood, between heresy and deception [sic], between the religion of the Prophet Muhammad and man-made laws, legislated by these criminals in order to rule the world.
Do we Muslims want the United Nations to create charity projects for us? The United Nations and its predecessor, the League of Nations, were established in order to fight Islam, to destroy the State of Islam, and to draw the Muslims away from their religion.

The notion of interfaith dialogue is nothing new. This is a malignant idea of which we must be aware, in order to avoid falling into the traps of Satan and his followers, who advocate such dialogue.
Our Prophet Muhammad had Jewish neighbors in Al-Madina. Did he call for closer relations, harmony, and dialogue with them, in the manner of the UN and of those who call to reconciliation Truth and Falsehood? Or did he call upon them to worship Allah? When they violated their pledge and did not accept this call – well, you know what he did to them. It appears in his Sira. He waged war against the Jews.
Do you know what interfaith dialogue means? Simply put, it is the creation of a new religion and of new concepts that will be shared by religions considered to be monotheistic. The purpose is to draw the Muslims away from their true religion.
All people are called to convert to Islam, and anyone who refrains from doing so, after having been presented with evidence, is an infidel, without a doubt.
Allah has made laws that regulate our relations with them, if we live in their countries. The so-called interfaith dialogue is not part of these laws. Things are entirely different. There should be an ideological conflict to refute their argument of Falsehood, and to present Islam as alternative to their bogus culture, which has hurled them into the abyss of depravity and corruption, and which has reduced them from humanity to the level of beasts.
