Happy Christmas Tony Blair

Blair - The Qur’an "is practical and way ahead of its time"

From the Muslim Weekly. March 24th 2006


The Prime Minister during his speech "Not a clash between civilisations, but a clash about civilisation" spoke forcefully about the problems of terrorism.
The talk given to the Foreign Policy Centre and Reuters also included his praise of the Holy Qur’an.

"The most remarkable thing about reading the Koran – in so far as it can be truly translated from the original Arabic - is to understand how progressive it is.



"I speak with great diffidence and humility as a member of another faith. I am not qualified to make any judgements. But as an outsider, the Koran strikes me as a reforming book, trying to return Judaism and Christianity to their origins, rather as reformers attempted with the Christian Church centuries later. It is inclusive. It extols science and knowledge and abhors superstition. It is practical and way ahead of its time in attitudes to marriage, women and governance," he said.

He added that under the guidance of the Qur’an, the spread of Islam and its dominance over previously Christian or pagan lands was "breathtaking".



"Over centuries it founded an Empire, leading the world in discovery, art and culture. We look back to the early Middle Ages, the standard bearers of tolerance at that time were far more likely to be found in Muslim lands than in Christian," he declared.

BLAIR IN ISLAM LAND

Never has a British Prime Minister made such a fool of himself.

We set out below a direct point for point contrast between Blair's version of Islam and the true version as laid down in the Koran. The Muslim Weekly (doubtless suitably primed by Nr 10 spin doctors) quoted from a Blair speech to the Foreign Policy Centre. As Blair said himself (and never did he speak a truer word) "I am not qualified to make any judgements….!" But since when did that stop him making them anyway?

There are of course would be reformers of Islam but these extracts from official Muslim teaching, where the violence and hatred is directed against unbelievers and other religions, makes one realise how difficult an accommodation with Islamic fundamentalists is – and how difficult it is for reforming Muslims to argue with the fundamentalists. The Koran, unlike the Bible, is officially the word of God – Allah. We are grateful to Dr Srdja Trifkovic and Rev Dr Alan Clifford for extracts from the Koran.

Blair’s words come first, relevant extracts from the Koran are quoted in italics. The Koran, like the Bible, has chapters "Sura" and verses. Blair was obviously reading the wrong Koran!

"The most remarkable thing about reading the Koran ….. is to understand how progressive it is."

'Believers, retaliation is decreed for you in bloodshed' (Sura 2: 178).

"I am not qualified to make any judgements. But as an outsider, the Koran strikes me as a reforming book……"

"When we decide to destroy a population…then we destroy them utterly" (17.16-17)

"The Koran is inclusive…….."

Infidels are "the worst animals" (8.55) and the vilest of creatures" (98.6) For the captured infidel "we have prepared chains, yokes and a blazing fire" (76.4)

"It is practical and way ahead of its time in attitudes to marriage, women and governance,"

Islam’s heaven is full of virgins "untouched by man" (52.17-20, 55.56-77) and "fresh" boys! (52.24, 56.17 76.19)

"It extols science and knowledge and abhors superstition."

'Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home: an evil fate' (Sura 9: 73).

"……. trying to return Judaism and Christianity to their origins, rather as reformers
attempted with the Christian Church centuries later.

"Kill any Jew you can lay your hands on" – Mohammed told his followers.

Blair added that "under the guidance of the Qur’an, the spread of Islam and its dominance over previously Christian or pagan lands was "breathtaking".

'Those that deny Our revelations We will burn in Hellfire...

"Over centuries it founded an Empire, leading the world in discovery, art and culture. We look back to the early Middle Ages, the standard bearers of tolerance at that time were far more likely to be found in Muslim lands than in Christian," Blair declared.

"Attacking caravans in the holy month, taking up arms against one’s kinsmen, slaughtering prisoners, reserving a lion’s share of the booty for himself, violating treaties and indulging one’s own sensual passions was all at odds with the moral standards of Mohammed’s Arab contemporaries. Only the ultimate authority could sanction it and Allah duly obliged" Dr Srdja Trifkovic.

Blair: 'Muslim may be PM'

By Anila Baig
December 09, 2006

A MUSLIM could one day be Prime Minister, Tony Blair said last night.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, the PM said: “They said there would never be a woman Prime Minister, but there was. It would depend on how good they were.

“The people would judge who was best for the job.”

The Premier also said he would not mind if any of his children wanted to marry a Muslim, saying: "I would respect it, if that was their decision and they were in love and happy."

Earlier, he delivered a lecture on race and religion in front of an invited audience of community leaders, race chiefs and the media.

He celebrated the contribution made by Britain’s ethnic minorities and praised the wider community’s acceptance of people’s backgrounds.

He said Britain was a haven for all people and praised The Sun’s interview with Arsenal’s French footballer Thierry Henry, in which he claimed Britain was one of the world’s most tolerant countries. Mr Blair said: “I read it. I thought it was excellent. And I think Thierry Henry is a really great bloke, by the way.”

The PM said Britain had changed for the better in the last 30 years, with offensive remarks and stupid stereotypes driven out of everyday conversation. According to figures, only 12 per cent of people would mind if a close relative married a black or Asian person.

Mr Blair again acknowledged that he would not have a problem if his son or daughter brought home a Muslim.


But he again defended Commons Leader Jack Straw’s comments over the veil — while pointing out that most extremists were young men, not women in niqabs.

He said it was a matter of common sense that, when speaking to someone, you could see their face.

Mr Blair called Channel 4’s Alternative Christmas Message, which will feature a woman wearing a veil for the first time, “a joke”.

He said: “I won’t be watching. I’ll be watching the Queen’s speech.”

Mr Blair pointed out that there was a great deal of discussion on the issue of veils going on within the Muslim community.

The PM added: “When Jack Straw made his comments, no less a person than the Mufti of the Arab Republic of Egypt made an approving statement.”

Mr Blair pleased Muslims members of his audience by referring to extremists as a “fringe element”.

Many Muslims feel aggrieved over the way the war on terror has been handled and feel they have been tainted and are all under suspicion.

But Mr Blair defined a moderate Muslim, saying this was “someone who believes if you have a disagreement with someone, then you change it by peaceful means”.

He said it was not about how religion was practised, but stressed that it was everyone’s duty to integrate.

He added: “If you are permitted to stay here permanently, you become an equal member of our community and become one of us.”

Mr Blair argued the great thing about Britain is that people can worship as they wish.

He said his family would be going to church on Christmas Eve.

The PM said: “We can worship God in our own way.

“It’s what being British means. And neither racists nor extremists should be allowed to destroy it.”

--------------------------------

So, Happy Christmas Tony Blair. Perhaps you would like to go and live in a Muslim country for your long-anticipated retirement. Perhaps you will then see at first hand how Christians and other non-Muslims are treated there.

If you have read the Quran, did you understand the concept of abrogation?

You, Mr Blair are either a dangerous fool, or a dangerous liar.

Humanity needs peace not Islam.

Blair is the most devious, grasping, traitor to Britain we have had since Lord Haw Haw, who was justly hanged for his crimes at the end of WW11. If he has read the Qu'ran as he claims he knows it to be a war manual and a handbook for taking over other peoples countries by force or stealth. This means he thinks he will be safely out of office and out of range by the time the West Walls fall.
I've got news for him, he has presided over the killing of thousands of Iraqui's he is a legitimate target for a Muslim soldier to kill even to the end of his life in whatever country he seeks refuge after he leaves the burning ship he has made of Britain.
He deserves everything he will get.
