How dare Daisy Khan evoke the holocaust and the mass genocide of the Jews to smear those brave Americans who dare to stand up against Islamic supremacism and the tower of triumph under proposal for Ground Zero?
What has Daisy Khan done to expunge the Koran, hadiths and sira of the virulent antisemitism and calls for Jewish genocide enshrined in Islamic teachings? What has Daisy Khan done to denounce and rebuke thehundreds of thousands of Jewish women and children? Her husband, Imam Rauf of the Cordoba Imitative, pals around with the notorious Jew hater and America hater, Sheik Qaradawi. Is that the kind of mutual respect and mutual understanding we can expect to see fostered at the Ground Zero mosque and "islamic Cultural Center?" Will Qaradawi be asked to speak?
Who among my readers will gift Daisy the Con all of the complete works of the world's leading scholar on Islamic antisemitism, Bat Ye'or.
This is Goebbels style propaganda at its most base. It is revolting, and decent men recoil at her unmitigated gall and insensitivity. Shame on ABC for not giving 911 families and lovers of freedom an equal stage.

Of course, Islam knows not a thing about the hatred of
Jews. Except for passages like the ones found below (linked from
pro-Islamic sources), including:
Qur'an 4:46, which says Allah has cursed the Jews for their disbelief.
Qur'an 5:41, which says the Jews love a lie.
which commands: "O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians
for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to
each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is
of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust."
Qur'an 5:82, which says "Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans."
Qur'an 9:30, which castigates the Jews for extolling Ezra as the son of Allah (what?).
Then there's the good old ahadith. Sahih (i.e., sound, or reliable in the Sunni tradition) Bukhari 4.52.177:
"Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you
fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding
will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."
Bottom line: Is Daisy Khan accusing us of hating Muslims as much as Allah hates Jews?
Of course, Khan & Co. know this is not about hate. Accusations of
hatred are a cheap shot, and a desperate shot aimed at stopping
substantive discussions. But we won't stop asking questions and
Anyway, you will want to read this one sitting down. "Islamic center leader says site is not moving," from Politico, August 22 (thanks to E H):
Daisy Khan, one of the leading organizers behind the mosque
and Islamic community center near ground zero in New York City, said
Sunday that moving the project to another location is not currently on
"Right now it's not, until we consult with all our stakeholders," Khan told ABC
News' "This Week with Christiane Amanpour." She appeared on the program
with Rabbi Joy Levitt, executive director of the Jewish Community
Center in Manhattan and an adviser on the project.
Khan said she believed the project would be built.
"Of course, it has to go ahead," she said. "There's so much at stake."
Asked if America was "Islamophobic," Khan responded that it's like "metastasized anti-Semitism."
"It's not even Islamophobia, it's beyond Islamophobia — it's hate of Muslims," she said. "And we are deeply concerned."
No, it isn't, Daisy:

“Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews…” (5:82).
“Curses were pronounced on those among the
Children of Israel who rejected Faith, by the tongue of David and of
Jesus the son of Mary: because they disobeyed and persisted in
“Is it ever so that when they make a covenant a
party of them set it aside? The truth is, most of them believe not. And
when there came to them a messenger from Allah [Muhammad], confirming
what was with them [the Torah], a party of the people of the Book threw
away the Book of Allah behind their backs, as if (it had been something)
they did not know!” (2:100-101).
“The People of the Book know well that that is the truth from their Lord. Nor is Allah unmindful of what they do” (2:143-144).
“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, (even if they
are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing
submission, and feel themselves subdued” (9:29).
“And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah,
and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their
saying with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who
disbelieved of old. Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse
are they!” (9:30)
The Jews killed their prophets (2:61; 2:87;
2:91; 3:21; 3:112; 3:181; 3:183; 4:155; 5:70), and boast “we killed the
Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary” (4:157).
“Allah hath heard the taunt of those who say:
‘Truly, Allah is indigent and we are rich!’ We shall certainly record
their word and (their act) of slaying the prophets in defiance of right,
and We shall say: ‘Taste ye the penalty of the Scorching Fire!’”
“Why do not the rabbis and the doctors of Law
forbid them from their (habit of) uttering sinful words and eating
things forbidden? Evil indeed are their works.” (5:63)
“The Jews say: ‘Allah’s hand is tied up.’ Be
their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy) they utter.
Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched: He giveth and spendeth (of
His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from
Allah increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and
blasphemy. Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of
Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish
it; but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth
not those who do mischief” (5:64).
The Jews “strive to do mischief on earth” –
that is, fasaad, for which the punishment is specified in 5:33: “they
will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate
sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land.”
“Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for
mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and
believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book had faith, it were
best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are
perverted transgressors. They will do you no harm, barring a trifling
annoyance; if they come out to fight you, they will show you their
backs, and no help shall they get. Shame is pitched over them (like a
tent) wherever they are found, except when under a covenant (of
protection) from Allah and from men; they draw on themselves wrath from
Allah, and pitched over them is (the tent of) destitution. This because
they rejected the Signs of Allah, and slew the prophets in defiance of
right; this because they rebelled and transgressed beyond bounds.”
“And because of their breaking their covenant,
We have cursed them and made hard their hearts. They change words from
their context and forget a part of that whereof they were admonished.
Thou wilt not cease to discover treachery from all save a few of them.
But bear with them and pardon them. Lo! Allah loveth the kindly (5:13).
“Among the People of the Book are some who, if
entrusted with a hoard of gold, will (readily) pay it back; others, who,
if entrusted with a single silver coin, will not repay it unless thou
constantly stoodest demanding, because, they say, ‘there is no call on
us (to keep faith) with these ignorant (Pagans).’ but they tell a lie
against Allah, and (well) they know it.” (3:75)
“O Messenger! let not those grieve thee, who
race each other into unbelief: (whether it be) among those who say ‘We
believe’ with their lips but whose hearts have no faith; or it be among
the Jews — men who will listen to any lie — will listen even to others
who have never so much as come to thee. They change the words from
their (right) times and places: they say, ‘If ye are given this, take
it, but if not, beware!’ If any one’s trial is intended by Allah, thou
hast no authority in the least for him against Allah. For such – it is
not Allah’s will to purify their hearts. For them there is disgrace in
this world, and in the Hereafter a heavy punishment.” (5:41)
“There is a party of them who distort the
Scripture with their tongues, that ye may think that what they say is
from the Scripture, when it is not from the Scripture. And they say: It
is from Allah, when it is not from Allah; and they speak a lie
concerning Allah knowingly” (3:78).
“Then woe to those who write the Book with their
own hands, and then say: ‘This is from Allah,’ to traffic with it for
miserable price! Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the
gain they make thereby.” (2:79)
“But because of their breach of their covenant,
We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard; they change the words
from their (right) places and forget a good part of the message that was
sent them, nor wilt thou cease to find them- barring a few – ever bent
on (new) deceits: but forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds): for
Allah loveth those who are kind.” (5:13)
“Many of the People of the Scripture long to
make you disbelievers after your belief, through envy on their own
account, after the truth hath become manifest unto them’” (2:109).
“And when there comes to them a Book from Allah,
confirming what is with them, although from of old they had prayed for
victory against those without Faith, when there comes to them that which
they (should) have recognised, they refuse to believe in it but the
curse of Allah is on those without Faith. “ (2:89)
“For the iniquity of the Jews We made unlawful
for them certain (foods) good and wholesome which had been lawful for
them; in that they hindered many from Allah’s Way; that they took usury,
though they were forbidden; and that they devoured men’s substance
wrongfully; we have prepared for those among them who reject faith a
grievous punishment.” (4:160-161)
“Thou wilt indeed find them, of all people, most
greedy of life,-even more than the idolaters: Each one of them wishes
He could be given a life of a thousand years: But the grant of such life
will not save him from (due) punishment. For Allah sees well all that
they do.” (2:96)
of the Jews: they are scheming, treacherous liars and the most dangerous
enemies of the Muslims. This theological tenet provides a basis for
Islam’s deeply-rooted anti-Semitism. Regardless of the actions of Jewish
individuals today, and regardless of what policies the State of Israel
follows, the Koran justifies an unrelenting form of anti-Semitism that
will be extremely difficult to root out from the Muslim world.
“extremist” fringe. The Koranic impulse toward anti-Semitism is evident
in the attacks on Jews emanating from Islamic preachers and scholars
worldwide. Take, for example, “Jews as Depicted in the Qur’an,” an
article posted in 2004 on the website Islam Online. The website’s
founders include the prominent Islamic theologian Sheikh Yusuf
al-Qaradawi, who is hailed as a moderate reformist by Western Islamic
apologists. The article, written by Sheikh ‘Atiyyah Saqr, formerly of
Al-Azhar University, copiously cites the Koran in depicting the Jews as a
gang of corrupt, deceitful cut-throats.
falsely ascribe them to Allah.” Supporting this, he quotes the verse
condemning Jews for claiming Allah’s hand was fettered
(5:64) and another asserting that some People of the Book say “we have
no duty to the Gentiles” and in doing so, “speak a lie concerning Allah
knowingly” (3:75). He adds a third verse in which some Jews, asked for
money, scoff that “Allah, forsooth, is poor, and we are rich!” (3:181)
lies.” This is essentially a straight rendering of the Koran’s claim
that the Jews are “men who will listen to any lie” (5:41). They also
spread them: “There is a party of them who distort the Scripture with
their tongues, that ye may think that what they say is from the
Scripture, when it is not from the Scripture. And they say: It is from
Allah, when it is not from Allah; and they speak a lie concerning Allah
knowingly” (3:78). They dare to distort “Divine Revelation and Allah’s
Sacred Books. Allah says in this regard: ‘Therefore woe be unto those
who write the Scripture with their hands and then say, ‘This is from
Allah,’ that they may purchase a small gain therewith. Woe unto them for
that their hands have written, and woe unto them for that they earn
Saqr also notes that in the Koran Allah says
the Jews have broken “their covenant,” and consequently he has “cursed
them and made hard their hearts” (5:13). Indeed, says Saqr, “they never
keep their promises or fulfill their words” – to demonstrate this, he
quotes this Koranic passage: “Is it ever so that when ye make a covenant
a party of you set it aside? The truth is, most of them believe not.”
The Jews also refuse to believe in the prophets Allah has sent them,
even Moses, telling him: “O Moses! We will not believe in thee till we
see Allah plainly” (2:55). They are hypocrites (2:14; 2:44) who “grow
arrogant” before the messengers of Allah, refusing to believe in some
and killing others (2:87). They are so arrogant and haughty that they
“claimed to be the sons and of Allah and His beloved ones” – a fault
they share with the Christians: “The Jews and Christians say: We are
sons of Allah and His loved ones” (5:18).
All that represents damage the Jews do to their own souls, but Saqr
— and the Koran itself – doesn’t stop there. The Jews also wish “evil
for people” and try to “mislead” them. “This is clear,” says Saqr, “in
the verse that reads: ‘Many of the People of the Scripture long to make
you disbelievers after your belief, through envy on their own account,
after the truth hath become manifest unto them’” (2:109). They “feel
pain to see others in happiness and are gleeful when others are
afflicted with a calamity,” as is demonstrated, according to Saqr, by
this verse: “If a lucky chance befall you, it is evil unto them, and if
disaster strike you they rejoice thereat” (3:120). The Koran, Saqr
points out, accuses them of “taking usury when they were forbidden it,
and of their devouring people's wealth by false pretences” (4:161).
and kill innocents,” for “nothing in the world is dear to their hearts
than shedding blood and murdering human beings.” Saqr grounds this on
the Koran’s assertion that the Jews “slew the prophets wrongfully”
(2:61). The Jews are characterized, says Saqr, by “cowardice. . . . To
this, the Qur’an refers when saying: ‘Ye are more awful as a fear in
their bosoms than Allah. That is because they are a folk who understand
not. They will not fight against you in a body save in fortified
villages or from behind walls” (59:14). Saqr also excoriates the Jews
for their “love for this worldly life” – as does the Koran: “And thou
wilt find them greediest of mankind for life and (greedier) than the
hopes that some day Muslims will be able to mete out punishment to their
enemies; “Almighty Allah told us that He’d send to them people who’d
pour on them rain of severe punishment that would last till the Day of
Resurrection. All this gives us glad tidings of the coming victory of
Muslims over them once Muslims stick to strong faith and belief in Allah
and adopt the modern means of technology.”
light of Iran’s feverish attempts to acquire a nuclear bomb, alongside
the repeated vows by Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to wipe
Israel off the map. For Ahmadinejad and his ilk, eliminating the Jewish
state is not just a foreign policy goal; it is a religious imperative.
Oddly, Saqr is silent about the famous Koranic
passages in which Allah transforms disobedient Jews into apes and pigs
(2:63-66; 5:59-60; 7:166). The practice of calling the Jews of today
“apes and pigs” has become a staple of jihadist discourse. Although
Saudi authorities promised after 9/11 to revise textbooks that taught
hatred against Jews and Christians, as late as 2006 Saudi texts still
referred to Jews as “apes” and Christians as “swine.”
awarded 70,000 pounds to a teacher who had been fired from a
Saudi-funded Islamic school for exposing the fact that the school used
textbooks that spoke of “the repugnant characteristics of the Jews” and
asserted: “Those whom God has cursed and with whom he is angry, he has
turned into monkeys and pigs. They worship Satan.”
on official Palestinian Authority television, railed against “the Jews
today taking revenge for their grandfathers and ancestors, the sons of
apes and pigs.”
And during the swine flu scare in May 2009,
Sheikh Ahmad 'Ali 'Othman, the superintendent of da'wa [Islamic
proselytizing] affairs at the Egyptian Ministry of Religious Endowments,
declared, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, that
“all pigs are descended from the Jews whom Allah transformed into apes,
swine and worshippers of Satan, and must therefore be slaughtered.”
Othman based his argument on Koran 5:60, one of the notorious “apes and
pigs” passages of the Koran.
January 2009 delivered a televised sermon in which he insisted that
Muslim hatred of Jews had nothing to do with Israel, and everything to
do with the Koran: “If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start
loving them? Of course not. We will never love them. Absolutely not. The
Jews are infidels – not because I say so, and not because they are
killing Muslims, but because Allah said: ‘The Jews say that Uzair is the
son of Allah, and the Christians say that Christ is the son of Allah.
These are the words from their mouths. They imitate the sayings of the
disbelievers before. May Allah fight them. How deluded they are.’ [9:30]
also quoted Koran 5:82, the verse that says that the Jews are the
Muslims’ worst enemies. His peroration: “As for you Jews – the curse of
Allah upon you. The curse of Allah upon you, whose ancestors were apes
and pigs…. Allah, we pray that you transform them again, and make the
Muslims rejoice again in seeing them as apes and pigs. You pigs of the
earth! You pigs of the earth! You kill the Muslims with that cold pig
[blood] of yours.”
“revolted against the Divine ordinances … they found no warm reception
in all countries where they tried to reside. Rather, they would either
be driven out or live in isolation.” Moreover, “Almighty Allah told us
that He’d send to them people who’d pour on them rain of severe
punishment that would last till the Day of Resurrection.”
Those people would be, by Saqr’s own account and that of other Islamic clerics, the Muslims.
‘Atiyyah Saqr, “Jews as Depicted in the Qur’an,” Islam Online, March 23, 2004.
And from the world's leading scholar of Islamic antisemitism, Bat Ye'or:
Society was sharply divided along ethnic and religious
lines, with the Arab tribes at the top of the hierarchy, followed by the
Berbers who were never recognized as equals, despite their Islamization. Lower
on the ladder came the mullawadun and, at the very bottom, the dhimmi Christians and Jews. — Bat Ye’or, Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis. Teaneck, Fairleigh Dickinson
University Press, 2005, page 166
As the dhimmis
were forbidden to possess arms, they became totally dependent on the
occupying power. In certain rural areas, the servile character of the dhimmi's
condition worsened with the passage of time. In 1884 Charles de
Foucauld described areas in southern Morocco where the Jews and their
families belonged body and soul to their Muslim master and were unable
to leave him. Here the condition of serfdom was determined by religion
and was passed on from generation to generation: these people were part
of the master's inheritance in exactly the same way as his lands and
livestock. As late as 1913, the Jews of Dadès in the Greater Atlas of
Morocco were serfs, the property of their Muslim master. — Bat Ye'or, The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians Under Islam. Teaneck, Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 1985, pages 52-53
is reported that, in 1033, between five and six thousand Jews were
massacred in Fez, and in 1066 about three thousand in Granada. In Yemen
the Jews were forced to choose between death and conversion in 1165 and
1678. The Almohad persecutions (1130-1212) in the Maghreb and in Muslim
Spain put an end to what remained of the Christian population of North
Africa. The Jews, who had been forced to accept Islam, formed a mass of
"new converts" who practiced their former religion in secret. The
Almohad inquisitors, doubting their sincerity, took away their children
and raised them as Muslims. A similar law also existed in Yemen, where
every Jewish orphan child had to be converted to Islam. Abrogated by the
Turks during their brief occupation of the country after 1872, it was
reintroduced by the Imam Yahya in 1922 and confirmed again in
1925….Records concerning Morocco, Algeria and Yemen reveal that during
changes of reign and times of instability, the Jewish quarters were
regularly pillaged, some of the menfolk massacred, and many women
abducted and held for ransom by the soldiery or by tribes from the
surrounding regions. Eyewitnesses have described the destruction of the
Jewish quarter at Fez in 1912 at the beginning of the French
protectorate, and at Sana'a in Yemen as late as 1948, after the
assassination of the Imam Yahya. Such ordeals, over the centuries,
resulted in many conversions to Islam. Thus a number of Judeo-Berber
tribes of the Atlas, and Muslim families in Fez, are known to be
descended from Jews who accepted Islam to save their lives in 1165,
1275, 1465, and 1790-92. There are Muslims in Tripolitania and elsewhere
who are the descendants of Jews forcibly converted at different
periods. The Jews of Tabriz were obliged to convert in 1291 and 1318,
and those of Baghdad in 1333 and 1344. — Bat Ye'or, The
Dhimmi: Jews and Christians Under Islam. Teaneck, Fairleigh
Dickinson University Press, 1985, page 61
brief survey will illustrate the traditional condition of dhimmitude in
Persia at this period. In 1866, the head of the Hamadan Jewish
community was imprisoned, put in chains, and threatened with death. The
same year in Balforuch (a province of Hamadan), the disappearance of a
young Muslim provoked the forced Islamization of Jews: eighteen were
killed and two burned alive. In Hamadan in 1875, a fanatic mullah
preached the slaughter of the Jews; one of them, accused of blasphemy,
was burned alive by the mob. In Teheran on 16 May 1877, the Jewish
quarter was invaded and its inhabitants attacked, while a mullah
published a fatwa forcing Jews to wear a distinctive badge.
Isfahan in 1889 a ritual murder accusation unleashed several days of
anti-Jewish violence and threats of extermination. On 10 August 1889 in
the same town, Muslims accused Jewish pilgrims of throwing stones, of
attacking a kadi, and of profaning a mosque with brandy. The mob
immediately broke the hands and legs of some hundred pilgrims and
injured all the others. Isfahan Jews were attacked in the streets the
next day and had to hide in their homes; two who ventured out were
killed. Their corpses were dragged through the streets and dumped in the
Jewish quarter when night fell. On the morrow, some women were raped
and the kadi signed a petition for the Jews to be exterminated. The
shah's son, Prince Zil-Sultan, hastened to protect the victims but the
brutality continued. Two months later, on 5 October, a Muslim who had
struck a Jew then accused him of the same offense; Jews were immediately
beaten up and their quarter plundered. Only the arrival of Prince
Zil-Sultan prevented a general massacre. This report also mentions
efforts by "Christian priests," Mirza Norollah in particular, to help
the Jews, thereby saving a large number and constantly assisting them.
