MORE BULLSH*T: Time Magazine’s newest claim is that Islamic terrorists don’t understand the Koran

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 here we go again, with one of this professional liar’s most dishonest presentations yet. Much more below.

“Jihadists Don’t Understand the Qur’an,” by Qasim Rashid, Time, March 24, 2016

This week’s Brussels attacks—like those in Ankara over the weekend, Paris in November and Kenya last April—are a scourge on humanity. They also represent the greatest possible misrepresentation of true Islam.

ISIS extremists and anti-Islam activists fundamentally ignore and misrepresent the Qur’an. It should come as no surprise that after suffering beatings for nearly a year as a ISIS hostage, freed French journalist Didier Francois reported:

There was never really discussion about texts or — it was not a religious discussion. It was a political discussion. It was more hammering what they were believing than teaching us about the Qur’an. Because it has nothing to do with the Qur’an. We didn’t even have the Qur’an; they didn’t want even to give us a Qur’an.

So the Islamic State jihadis didn’t want to give a Qur’an to a non-Muslim hostage, and Qasim Rasgid presents this as evidence that “ISIS extremists and anti-Islam activists fundamentally ignore and misrepresent the Qur’an.” If they ignore it, how can they misrepresent it? But anyway, Rashid is lying again. The Islamic State doesn’t ignore the Qur’an, it quotes it frequently: in threats to blow up the White House and conquer Rome and Spain; in explaining its priorities in the nations it is targeting in jihad; in preaching to Christians after collecting the jizya (a Qur’an-based tax, cf. Qur’an 9:29); in justifying the execution of accused spies; and in its various videos.

It has also awarded $10,000 prizes and sex slaves in Qur’an memorization contests. One of its underground lair was found littered with weapons and copies of the Qur’an. Children in the Islamic State study the Qur’an and get weapons training.
