An Open Message to Rabbi Jerome Davidson (and Other Critics of Pamela Geller)

My wife and I were looking forward to hearing Pamela Geller speak at Great Neck Synagogue this Sunday. Unfortunately, her speech was canceled due to a relentless campaign of intimidation by an "interfaith" coalition that included not only Muslims, but Jews and Christians as well. We can only wonder why these Jews and Christians, who find Pamela's speech unacceptable, have no objection to the hate-filled claims we read in the Qur'an and Hadith.

If you happen to be in the New York area, Sunday's events have been rescheduled elsewhere.

For those who would like to know what the Muslim sources say about unbelievers, here you go:

Qur’an 3:32—Say: Obey Allah and the Apostle; but if they turn back, then surely Allah does not love the unbelievers.

Qur’an 5:51—O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

Qur’an 9:29—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, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Qur’an 9:30—And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!

Qur’an 9:73—O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.

Qur’an 9:111—Surely Allah has bought of the believers their persons and their property for this, that they shall have the garden; they fight in Allah's way, so they slay and are slain; a promise which is binding on Him in the Taurat and the Injeel and the Quran; and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? Rejoice therefore in the pledge which you have made; and that is the mighty achievement.

Qur’an 9:123—O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).

Qur’an 47:35—Be not weary and fainthearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost: for Allah is with you, and will never put you in loss for your (good) deeds.

Qur’an 48:29—Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves.

Qur’an 98:6—Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikun will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.

Sahih Muslim 33—It has been narrated on the authority of Abdullah b. Umar that the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish prayer, and pay Zakat and if they do it, their blood and property are guaranteed protection on my behalf except when justified by law, and their affairs rest with Allah.

Sahih Muslim 4366—It has been narrated by ‘Umar b. al-Khattab that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say: I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.

Al-Bukhari, Al-Adab al-Mufrad 1103—Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Do not give the People of the Book the greeting first. Force them to the narrowest part of the road.”

Sahih al-Bukhari, Ch. 88—Narrated Ibn Umar that the Prophet said, “My livelihood is under the shade of my spear, and he who disobeys my orders will be humiliated by paying Jizya.”

Excellent !

Pamela Geller is like a human rubber ball. The more these types insult, defame and attempt to silence her, the higher she bounces.
She REALLY knows how to get under their skin, LOL.

I have never heard of this rabbi

Have the organizers of the event given a reason for cancelling Miss Geller?

Brilliant commentary David.

This Rabi is typically like the Jews of Medina who got their tribe slaughtered or The Jews of Malmo, Sweden who got chased out.

Outstanding commentary ...

DAVID! Dude, if I had a mind as capable as yours, I would be teaching people how to think logically and exchange ideas peaceably and cogently.

OH! WAIT! That's EXACTLY what you're doing! LOL! You're teaching even when you're not in class! Wait! Is there a homework assignment? THANK YOU DAVID!

This rabbi is someting , how could he say someting d lady did nt say

Just curious, Dave. When Zionist terror groups like the Irgun and LEHI were setting off bombs in vegetable markets (groups headed by Begin and Shimir, 2 future PMs of Israel), was it appropriate to refer to Zionists as "savages"? Or do you hold Zionists to different standards than Palestinians?

David Wood said...

If any group (Christian, Muslim, or Jew) targets civilians or children as part of a political or ideological battle, I have no objection to calling them "savages." How's that for consistency?

Unknown said...

Worst of creature??

Dear All,

I have Christian Mother and Father. However I consider converting into Islam. The verses of Qoran against unbelivers are in two classes: First ones say ,if unbelievers doesnt threaten the future of Islam (which is seen as the only salvation to all human beings) give them some rights and let them live according their own choices. You are never allowed to make them pressure in order to make them believers. In Qoran is said: The key of the hearts of every human being is in the hand of Allah (hand is here symbolic!), not in the hand of yourself (prophet and also all believers).
The second class of verses are also seen similarly in old and new testament. IF THE UNBELIEVERS ARE THREAT FOR THE SPREAD OF THE RELIGION, KILL THEM! POINT!
Because in this circumstance they are poison for the society!

The thing about Mohammed and Ayse marriage (who is claimed to be 6 or 9 or 16 or 18 or maybe 21 according to sources):

So here the answer:

If someone says USA is in Europa. And if you say, no it is not in Europa, it is in North America, you wasted tour energy and time to speak and answer this thing.

Thats the same here. Firstly Mohammed married his first wife Hatice (who was over 50) at an age of 30 and made no marriage until HAtice died after 25 years. Mohammed was 55 years old in that time. So if Mohammed wanted to amuse himself with wifes, why did he wait until he was 55? He could do that at 20, 30,40!

Secondly, the mariages of him after age 55 have also political aspects, to establish good relationships with influential colony leaders e.g

Thirdly, Buhari Muslim which contain Ayse being 6 or 9 or 18 or 21 (there is no clear information about it) were written 200 hundred years later than the death of Mohammed. In this 200 years period all the necessary information weresaid from ear-to-ear, which means these are never without mistakes. There are mistakes and maybe big mistakes. We dont know.

That's Sahih Muslim 22 (quick reference) :) Thanks for the article and the resources David!
