Qur’anic Anti-Semitic Verses

YUSUFALI: Quite a number of the People of the Book wish they could Turn you (people) back to infidelity after ye have believed, from selfish envy, after the Truth hath become Manifest unto them: But forgive and overlook, Till Allah accomplish His purpose; for Allah Hath power over all things.

2:61 “they were covered with humiliation and misery; they drew on themselves the wrath of Allah. This because they went on rejecting the Signs of Allah and slaying His Messengers without just cause. This because they rebelled and went on transgressing.”

002.065YUSUFALI: And well ye knew those amongst you who transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath: We said to them: “Be ye apes, despised and rejected.”

002.091YUSUFALI: When it is said to them, “Believe in what Allah Hath sent down, “they say, “We believe in what was sent down to us:” yet they reject all besides, even if it be Truth confirming what is with them. Say: “Why then have ye slain the prophets of Allah in times gone by, if ye did indeed believe?”

002.096YUSUFALI: Thou wilt indeed find them, of all people, most greedy of life,-even more than the idolaters: Each one of them wishes He could be given a life of a thousand years: But the grant of such life will not save him from (due) punishment. For Allah sees well all that they do.

002.104YUSUFALI: O ye of Faith! Say not (to the Messenger) words of ambiguous import, but words of respect; and hearken (to him): To those without Faith is a grievous punishment.

003.012YUSUFALI: Say to those who reject Faith: “Soon will ye be vanquished and gathered together to Hell,-an evil bed indeed (to lie on)!

003.069YUSUFALI: It is the wish of a section of the People of the Book to lead you astray. But they shall lead astray (Not you), but themselves, and they do not perceive!

003.071YUSUFALI: Ye People of the Book! Why do ye clothe Truth with falsehood, and conceal the Truth, while ye have knowledge?

003.075YUSUFALI: Among the People of the Book are some who, if entrusted with a hoard of gold, will (readily) pay it back; others, who, if entrusted with a single silver coin, will not repay it unless thou constantly stoodest demanding, because, they say, “there is no call on us (to keep faith) with these ignorant (Pagans).” but they tell a lie against Allah, and (well) they know it.

003.078YUSUFALI: There is among them a section who distort the Book with their tongues: (As they read) you would think it is a part of the Book, but it is no part of the Book; and they say, “That is from Allah,” but it is not from Allah: It is they who tell a lie against Allah, and (well) they know it!

003.110YUSUFALI: Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors

004.046YUSUFALI: Of the Jews there are those who displace words from their (right) places, and say: “We hear and we disobey”; and “Hear what is not Heard”; and “Ra’ina”; with a twist of their tongues and a slander to Faith. If only they had said: “What hear and we obey”; and “Do hear”; and “Do look at us”; it would have been better for them, and more proper; but Allah hath cursed them for their Unbelief; and but few of them will believe.

004.055YUSUFALI: Some of them believed, and some of them averted their faces from him: And enough is Hell for a burning fire.

005.032YUSUFALI: On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.

005.033YUSUFALI: The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;

005.051YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.

YUSUFALI: Say: “Shall I point out to you something much worse than this, (as judged) by the treatment it received from Allah? those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil;- these are (many times) worse in rank, and far more astray from the even path!”

005.064YUSUFALI: The Jews say: “Allah’s hand is tied up.” Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy) they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched: He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it; but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief.

005.071YUSUFALI: They thought there would be no trial (or punishment); so they became blind and deaf; yet Allah (in mercy) turned to them; yet again many of them became blind and deaf. But Allah sees well all that they do.

005.078YUSUFALI: Curses were pronounced on those among the Children of Israel who rejected Faith, by the tongue of David and of Jesus the son of Mary: because they disobeyed and persisted in excesses.

005.082YUSUFALI: Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say, “We are Christians”: because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant.

007.166YUSUFALI: When in their insolence they transgressed (all) prohibitions, We said to them: “Be ye apes, despised and rejected.”

007.168YUSUFALI: We broke them up into sections on this earth. There are among them some that are the righteous, and some that are the opposite. We have tried them with both prosperity and adversity: In order that they might turn (to us).

009.029YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

009.030YUSUFALI: The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

016.118YUSUFALI: To the Jews We prohibited such things as We have mentioned to thee before: We did them no wrong, but they were used to doing wrong to themselves.

017.004YUSUFALI: And We gave (Clear) Warning to the Children of Israel in the Book, that twice would they do mischief on the earth and be elated with mighty arrogance (and twice would they be punished)!

017.005YUSUFALI: When the first of the warnings came to pass, We sent against you Our servants given to terrible warfare: They entered the very inmost parts of your homes; and it was a warning (completely) fulfilled.

058.014YUSUFALI: Turnest thou not thy attention to those who turn (in friendship) to such as have the Wrath of Allah upon them? They are neither of you nor of them, and they swear to falsehood knowingly.

062.006YUSUFALI: Say: “O ye that stand on Judaism! If ye think that ye are friends to Allah, to the exclusion of (other) men, then express your desire for Death, if ye are truthful!”

098.006YUSUFALI: Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures.

002.109YUSUFALI: Quite a number of the People of the Book wish they could Turn you (people) back to infidelity after ye have believed, from selfish envy, after the Truth hath become Manifest unto them: But forgive and overlook, Till Allah accomplish His purpose; for Allah Hath power over all things.

Who Are We Fighting

Who Are We Fighting

By Jerrold L. Sobel

In a hard hitting essay, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich came out blazing this week proclaiming: ‘Radical Islamists’ Are the Enemy. To those that gasp at the mere sound of his name, try to put away the knee jerk reaction and listen to what the man has to say. “We are confronted by a mainstream movement that seeks gradually to infuse sharia, Islam’s legal and political framework, into our legal, political, financial, economic, and educational systems — and throughout our culture.”
That’s irrefutable. Through both soft and hard jihad this insidious movement has accomplished more in subjugating Europe than it had been able to do militarily for hundreds of years. He goes on to say:
“One of our biggest mistakes in the aftermath of 9/11 was naming our response to the attacks ‘the war on terror’ instead of accurately identifying radical Islamists (and the underlying ideology of radical Islamism) as the target of our campaign.

Oh my, I can see the progressives dropping by the wayside on this one but for realists living in the here and now and are aware of what is going on in the world, who can disagree with this analysis? To categorize the dire conflict between two fundamentally opposed civilizations as compatible is nothing short of disingenuous. Unless of course you believe transparent jurisprudence, a free press, women’s rights, freedom of religion or no religion at all, and open elections is accordant with, forced marriages, misogyny, crimes punishable by stoning, amputations, homophobia, and other 7th century dandies called for under Sharia; Islamic law. Yet in spite of everything, two Administrations, first Bush and now Obama have tried to force feed the nation this absurd drivel following 9/11 .

Our nation lost more people on that dreadful day than we did at Pearl Harbor. Reasonable people can not deny that the attacks on the WTC, the Pentagon, and flight 93 which went down in Stoney Creek Pennsylvania were random acts. They were well financed, meticulously planned, and carried out by believers of a religion which preaches such hatred. Likewise, 9/11 didn’t occur in a vacuum.

An argument can be made that the first Islamic attack on the United States came on November 4, 1979 when Iranian militants under the leadership of Ayatollah Khomeini stormed the American Embassy in Teheran and took 63 Americans hostage. Emboldened by the tepid response of then President Carter, other Islamists began viewing the United States as a paper tiger which led to further aggression under the Clinton Administration: Feb. 26, 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center; June 25, 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia where 19 American servicemen were killed; August 7, 1998 destruction of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania; the October 12, 2000 attack on the U.S.S. Cole with the death of 17 sailors. Unfortunately, by treating each of these events as a criminal matter as opposed to a military one, the path to 9/11/2001 was cleared. Even in the days just subsequent that that dastardly day President Bush began showering the nation with mendacious statements such as, “Islam is a peaceful religion,” when both history and current events dismally failed to support that premise.

The former Speaker correctly rues the day this conflict was misnamed, “The War on Terror.” If that misnomer sticks to his craw, I wonder how he likes the latest politically correct banner this President is asking our nation to rally around, “Countering Violent Extremism,” rather than what it really is, ”The War Against Radical Islam?” Whether you admire Gingrich or hate him, on this topic more and more Americans are coming around to his way of thinking. How do you rally a nation to go to war without alerting them to who the enemy is? At the outbreak of the Second World World War can you imagine Roosevelt or Churchill referring to that conflict as: “The War Against Evil People” for fear of offending Americans of German, Italian, or Japanese descent? It’s ludicrous. This particular enemy is the most daunting and insidious foe our country and the Western World has ever faced. They represent a liberty usurping movement enveloped within a religious cult, yet are being fought both here and abroad with little passion except for our poor, brave men and women in the sweltering heat against an enemy our leadership refuses to properly identify. A foe whose doctrine embraces death over life to satisfy a God of punishments and hatred for all those which refuse adherence to its deity. As a political movement, as much a religion Gingrich bemoans the tactics radical Islam employs ranging from terrorism to legal means all for the ultimate purpose of imposing Sharia law and abrogating hundreds of years of Western enlightenment.

In response to the proposed building of a Mosque just two blocks from ground zero, Gingrich aptly points out, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the man in charge of this proposal, (which just cleared another hurdle this week by the refusal of the landmark committee to grant the building landmark status) “Is an apologist for sharia supremacy and in a recent Op-Ed compared Sharia to the Declaration of Independence.” Whether this is true or not is not the point. If a container of milk obviously smells tainted, there’s no need in tasting it. With no transparency as to where the money for this project is coming from; most likely President Obama’s bowing partner King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, and with the refusal of the organizers to divulge their sources, shouldn’t one stop and wonder? Forgetting the legalities but knowing the sensitivities this area evokes, would people of goodwill insist upon building their Mosque on what most Americans consider to be hallowed ground? Or are they, to use the vernacular, with the consent of loony, politically correct politicians such as Michael Bloomberg just sticking it to us because they can? To quote that obnoxious Ford commercial, “why here, why now?” The answer is, why not.

Qur’an (5:51)- “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other” but an even more succinct message to adherents of this religion/cult is: “Qur’an (3:85) – “And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.”
Mind you, these are just two out of many direct quotes from the pillar of Islamic deity, the Qur’an. The Hadith and Sunnah the two other foundational legs of Islam are replete with additional suras equally intolerant of other religions. With this as a backdrop, is it a stretch to say this Imam, his followers, and his financial backers could give two hoots about the feelings of people from different religions or for that matter, those that do not believe in religion at all?

Please read the following attached article: “On Bashing Muslims.” It’s a follow up to the Gingrich essay by Frank Gaffney, the American founder and President of the lobbyist group: Center for Security Policy.
