Ahmadi Muslim leader Qasim Rashid

Ahmadi Muslim leader Qasim Rashid slanders Ben Carson, lies about Islam

Ahmadi Muslim leader Qasim Rashid is, as Pamela Geller calls him, “a one-man cottage industry of deception and hypocrisy.” He has whitewashed Muhammad’s support for torture and the reality of jihad violence and Sharia oppression; dissembled about the Qur’an’s sanction of deception of unbelievers; lied about the presence of violent passages in the Qur’an; lied about the Qur’an’s sanction of beating disobedient women; lied about the nature of Sharia; called for limitations on the freedom of speech and expression to outlaw behavior and speech some Muslims may find offensive; and lied about Muhammad’s stance toward the persecution of Christians. When challenged about the “facts” he has presented, he (like virtually all other Islamic supremacists) responds with furious ad hominem contempt, but never answers the refutations of his articles on substantive grounds.

    And the muzz don’t recognize him as muzz.

    The supremacists of islam (and that means every muslim) answer to allah, not to infidels. There is no debate to be had with muslims.

    • I don’t agree that every Muslim is a supremacist. A lot or even most Muslims just aren’t very Muslim.

      It’s like saying all Catholics are firmly anti-abortion. All honest, serious Catholics are; but a great many people who identify strongly as Catholic still manage to ignore the teachings they don’t find convenient.

        Yes, there are some Muslims who identify as Muslim, but hardly have any Islamic tendencies. But if you question Muslims of this sort, you usually find they are like this guy, or Ahmadya in general. “Mohammed was the first person to grant equality to women.” “Mohammed gave equality to Christians and Jews.”
        “Mohammed didn’t kill anyone. He was horrified by violence.”
        “Aisha was 23 years old” (this last one was claimed by Tarek Fatah on Michael Coren’s old show).

        Whatever good thing you want to hear, Mohammed was it.

        • True. Mind you, I don’t think Qasim Rashid is an innocent. I honestly don’t know what to make of him. “Taqiyya” is a real thing but I doubt that deliberate, cold-blooded Taqiyya is very prevalent. Most Muslims are just human beings, after all. No: I think this is some sort of Soviet-style Doublethink. Or I guess possibly he’s a total psychopath. Some people are, of course.

          I think that Muslims don’t tend to acknowledge the possibility of truth without an agenda. I’m aware of how arrogant that sounds, and I’m aware that Westerners usually do a bad job of holding to un-self-serving truth, just like everyone else does. Fallen human nature and all that. But an ideal, however poorly served, is a good thing to have.

          Islam is, to put it mildly, highly dependent on a)interpretations of the Koran (and somehow if we infidels point out the horribleness of some verse in the Koran we never have the proper “context”, or else we need to learn 7th c. Arabic to criticize it [although oddly this is never a problem when it comes to some idiot reading a Koran and converting]) and b)the hadiths. But the hadiths are fun because there are tonnes of them, and some are of higher status and more trustworthy than others, depending on whom you talk to, and frankly the whole thing is a giant mass of contradictions. You can textually take “Islam” to prove anything.

          And Muslims try to bog you down in that. They have no tradition of rhetoric, a major part of the Western intellectual tradition dating to ancient Greece. Non-Westernized Muslims are impossible to debate. There is no notion of Truth. “Truth” is the Koran, the Eternal Message, Housed in Heaven and Written in Ancient Arabic Perfection, but because the earthly Koran makes no real sense (and it doesn’t) the mundane truth becomes infinitely malleable.

          Anyway, sorry to barble on. I spend time thinking about this when I should be thinking about about more useful things, although I don’t quite remember what those are.

            Good luck with your conversion!

          • I’m sorry that I was rude earlier, but I do find it so annoying, the way it sometimes seems that nobody can say anything not totally pre-approved without being accused of being… I dunno? A closet Muslim? A Quisling? A secret Trudeau fan?

      • moraywatson

        Existentially all muslims are totalitarians and supremacists. And why are you conflating followers of a true religion with the 1400 year old ambitions of a narcissistic pedophile?

        • I’m not sure what you mean. This subject interests me very much. “Existentially” is a word we should all be familiar with, at least to look at, but I don’t know how in any practical sense it applies to all Muslims.

          “And why are you conflating followers of a true religion with the 1400 year old ambitions of a narcissistic pedophile?”

          Mohammed, (assuming he existed*, which I hink he did,) was certainly a pedophile and probably a narcissist. But I still don’t understand what you mean by this sentence. Please to explain your point.

            Who kidnapped Black_Mamba and replaced it with the islamobot?

          • Because everyone has to be a screeching fanatic, or else s/he’s a sellout. Seriously, what have I said that’s, like, pro-Muslim? Like something an “islamobot”, which I guess is a lobotomized Muslim robot, would say?

            By the way, I seriously have no idea what point you’re trying to make. “And why are you conflating followers of a true religion with the 1400 year old ambitions of a narcissistic pedophile?” This is literally meaningless. Nobody on Earth could mine meaning out of that “sentence”.

            “Good luck with your conversion!”

            Oh right. I guess I’ve converted to Islam, have I? Because thinking about stuff is for muzzies? Because, in the comment you’re responding to, I actually try to compare the way Muslims think with the way everyone else thinks? Like, I want to analyze stuff? And this is somehow evidence that I’ve converted to Islam? “good luck with your conversion!”

            I swear to God, if this were my blog I’d ban you on the spot. Because fuck you. Like there’s not enough stupid in the world.

          • moraywatson

            Well I’m so glad it’s not your blog.

          • El Martyachi

            Or how it applies to anything, really.

            Maybe it was a typo intending to be ‘essentially’?

            But..since you asked.. one time a prof uttered this phrase (in a heavily perogified accent), solely based on my facial expression: “I am heviing existential crisiis.”

            It happens sometimes.

      That’s because they don’t recognize the rules of debate.

    The Ahmadis are considered infidels by the co-religionists, which must be very frustrating for them, as they actually seem to be stalking horses for Islam.

  • bargogx1

    It figures that that drivel was posted on Salon, one of the worst cesspools on the Internet. Both the writers and regular commenters on that site seem to be severly allergic to the truth.
