Arab News: ‘Behind Sweden’s tirade is a hidden Western agenda to tarnish Islam’

Culture clash: Sweden supplies the moral preening; the Arab world supplies the conspiracies

Sweden and other Western countries have adopted double standards while dealing with human rights as they ignore the killing of thousands in Iraq, Syria and Palestine, and highlight the flogging of an individual in Saudi Arabia as a big issue, said Dr. Mohammed Badahdah, assistant secretary general of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY).

Speaking to Arab News, he emphasized that Saudi Arabia’s rules and regulations as well as its judicial system are based on the Qur’an and Sunnah or Shariah. “Shariah laws are not made by Parliament or people’s representatives. They are divine laws given by the Almighty for the welfare and security of the whole humanity,” he explained.

“It’s the duty of all countries and societies to respect religious faiths, beliefs and cultures of different communities in order to promote peace and stability in the world,” Badahdah said while denouncing Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom’s anti-Saudi tirade…

…Western countries and organizations often raise human rights issues in Saudi Arabia not because of their love for the protection of human rights but because of their hidden agenda of tarnishing the image of Islam and Muslims, he said…

    Stay in your own country and U wont have these problems do what U do best raise Camels and child brides

  • Mohammad Pig

    It’s a big deal to Muslims because of all of the blonde women Muslims want to rape and enslave

  • The whole thing is typical lying/crazy. At one point he’s going on about children who died in the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. And Australian Aboriginals, he really feels for them. So, you know, who are we evil Westerners to criticize blah blah blah…

    “They (the Media I think he means) can only attack countries like Saudi Arabia. They will not say a word against the US and Israel…”

    You get this a lot. Saudis seem to believe that no one in America is ever allowed to criticize Israel. Dr. Mohammed Badahdah is almost certainly sophisticated enough to know how far from the truth that is, but he understands what line of bullshit he’s supposed to peddle.

    I am sick to death of these people.

      What Muslims mean by “criticizing Israel” is calling for her destruction and the annihilation of ALL the Jews.So, he’s right, we don’t “criticize Israel” in the same way or with the same intent.

      Allahu Fubar!

      • Sort of, but a lot of Saudis educated enough that they can comment on English language media really do think that you just aren’t allowed to criticize Israel in the West. Because their life is a tyranny they cannot imagine that anything else exists.

        After the Charlie Hebdo massacre I read a lot of this stuff, certainly at Arab News. It would always be roughly: You say Islam and Prophet (SAW) must be allowed criticize for freedom speech but try in America even to criticize Israel you have no free speech where is it your speech!!!!!

        I mean this is not an exaggeration. It’s what the more sophisticated and educated Muslims believe.

        Also ISIS is really an Israeli operation.

          Also, the MOSSAD killed Mohammed.

    It’s so weird to see stuff like “Shariah laws are … divine laws given by the Almighty for the welfare and security of the whole humanity,” stated matter-of-factly, as if it goes without saying that this divine being no one sees or hears or has proof of has provided us with laws.

    But even if one accepts that Allah did give humans sharia law, who wants to give any respect to a spiteful deity that insists that, for instance, anyone who leaves his religion must be put to death. And not being content with burning infidels in hell for all eternity, the (expletive) fellow insists on telling his followers to murder and torment those infidels in the little space of time they have on earth. Who would WANT to worship such a mean-spirited, vengeful deity?

      That’s why their call, “Allahu Akbar!” means “Allah is greater!” Greater than who? Why, greater than the Jewish God, that’s who!

      • lolwut?

        Actually it’s the same god,

        Allah isn’t a proper name, it’s Arabic meaning god
        Arab Christians also say Allah.

        Jesus is also a prophet in the Quran, they just don’t believe he was the son of god. just a messenger. No super powers.

        • Minicapt

          No, but you would have to study the subject a little to comprehend the differences.


        • occupant 9

          Actually it isn’t.

          Allah is the “victor” in the pantheon of pre-Islamic pagan gods. Allah was the god followed by Mo’s clan. Allah is the moon god. Allah is represented by the crescent moon which adorns all mosques.

          God, the God of the Hebrew nation, bestowed his holy name upon Israel and promised to keep the Jewish nation alive to prove His existence; that His promise lasted as long as there as there are stars in the sky, or the number of the grains of sand on a beach. God loves humanity but has chosen the Jews through which to forge a holy nation to guide the world to peace.

          Allah, the Islamic god, commands the world’s “perfection” won’t come until every last Jew on earth is murdered by his faithful Muslim servants. Allah says the rocks and the trees will call out, “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me! Come and kill him!” Allah hates non-believers but especially hates Jews. Allah wants to guide the world through murder and deception, as Allah considers himself the “best of deceivers.”

          As Churchill would say, “If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong.”

          • lolwut?

            uhhhh… nope

          • occupant 9

            Your response of, “uhhhh… nope” is very convincing.

            With it, you’ve convinced me you’re content to have no idea how much you have no idea.

          • lolwut?

            No dude, that moon god stuff tells me you’re likely a kook off their meds.

          • occupant 9

            Oh, Allah is an ancient pre-Islamic moon god because I am off my meds? Excellent reasoning! Too bad about all that chronological history and fact of event that the rest of us can’t ignore. Sheesh!

            It does seem though that I’ve underestimated just how deeply you have no idea that you have no idea and that’s you’re happy place.

    Wouldn’t a “moral superpower” prioritize the safety of its own people? Sweden’s disregard of the immigration-based rape wave puts the nation rather low on my morality scoreboard.

    • occupant 9

      It’s almost as if they WANT this to happen … kinda like how the Left defines “payback,” perhaps?

    • Blacksmith

      Except when leftist are in charge, then the indigenous people are at fault for the invaders crimes. Most of the once great Nordic peoples have given away their morals over the last few decades in the worship of multicultural leftism.

    In the April
    9, 2002 issue, The Wall Street Journal published the concept of
    blood money in Saudi Arabia.
    If a person has been killed or caused to die by another, the latter has to pay
    blood money or compensation, as follows.

    100,000 riyals if the victim is a Muslim man

    50,000 riyals if a Muslim woman

    50,000 riyals if a Christian man

    25,000 riyals if a Christian woman

    6,666 riyals if a Hindu man

    3,333 riyals if a Hindu woman

    According to this hierarchy, a Muslim man’s life is worth
    33 times that of a Hindu woman. This hierarchy is based on the Islamic
    definition of human rights and is rooted in the Quran and Sharia (Islamic law).
    How can we talk of human rights when the concept of equality in Islam is nonexistent?

  • These two countries deserve one another.
