Random Rant #2

Everyone says that their God is the god of love and peace; but so many acts of atrocities are commited in His name. Can you imagine the look on Jesus Christ's face when Pat Roberston prays ' . . . In Jesus's name we pray, Amen?'

Worshippers of Satan

(533) Worshippers of Satan

Now, who said all the bible thumpers had to be christian? The above link is a reference found on the http://www.alminbar.com/ web site; it looks to be a 'sermon bank' for Muslims. I KNOW there's a xian version of this, and pretty sure there is a Jewish one as well. I will be making it my mission to find these and make them public.
Here's a quote from the above reference (in case it ends up going away). Read this, and then think about some who has had this drilled into them since childhood. Think about some guy looking for something to fill the empty void of his existence. Iraqi insurgents hate us Americans so much, and why someone might be willing to strap a bomb to their body and kill a bunch of people who had nothing to do with anything. It sounds like the fires of hell are stoking up for Bush; although they could also be speaking about despot dictators in Bush's favor. This sermon could certianly be applied to Sharon.


Another form of their worship of Satan, is averting people from the way of Allaah, and fighting the allies of Allaah and trying to destroy their image, and torturing them, and meanwhile, supporting and making allies with the enemies of Allaah and respecting them and bringing them closer to themselves.

Listen to Allaah describing the characteristics of those who are from the party of Satan: "Have you not considered those who make allies of people with whom Allah has become angry. They are neither of you nor of them, and they swear to untruth while they know they are lying. Allah has prepared for them a severe punishment, indeed it is evil what they used to do. They took their false oaths as a cover so they averted people from the way of Allah, and for them is a humiliating punishment. Never will their wealth or their children avail them against Allah at all. Those are the companions of the fire, they will abide therein eternally.

“On the day (meaning the Judgment Day) Allah will resurrect them all, and they will swear to Him as they swear to you, And think that they have some standing. Unquestionable it is they who are the liars.

“Satan has overcome them and made them forget the remembrance of Allah. Those are the party of Satan unquestionably the party of Satan, they will be the losers, Indeed the ones who oppose Allah and his messengers, and his messenger those will be the most humble or humiliated.“
(Al-Mujaadalah: 14-20)

Xians love Muslims

Republican Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) (On the Abu Gahrib scandal):
"I have to say I'm probably not the only one up at this table that is more outraged by the outrage than we are by the treatment. The idea that these prisoners, you know they're not there for traffic violations. If they're in cellblock 1A or 1B these prisoners, they're murderers, they're terrorists, they're insurgents, many of them probably have American blood on their hands, and here we're so concerned about the treatment of those individuals."

Makes you feel good inside. Certianly makes him feel good inside . . .

When president Bush speaks of his faith, he alienates everyone else non-xian. This is not the position the leader of the free world should be in.

23 reasons to condenm Zionism

There are no 'good guys' in the Arab-Isreali conflict anymore. Too much blood has spilled on the holiest land of billions of christians, Jews, and Muslims. As Americans, we would do very well to remember our own history before picking sides. I didn't write any of this, and doing a bit of research, I've seen some opposition to facts surrounding some of the quotes. If people were never known to talk like this, I might have believed them. But hate is hate, and no one gets a free skate in the name of PC.

1. "There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy."
Israeli president Moshe Katsav. The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001

2. "The Palestinians are like crocodiles, the more you give them meat, they want more"....
Ehud Barak, Prime Minister of Israel at the time - August 28, 2000. Reported in the Jerusalem Post August 30, 2000

3. " [The Palestinians are] beasts walking on two legs."
Menahim Begin, speech to the Knesset, quoted in Amnon Kapeliouk, "Begin and the Beasts". New Statesman, 25 June 1982.

4. "The Palestinians" would be crushed like grasshoppers ... heads smashed against the boulders and walls."
Isreali Prime Minister (at the time) in a speech to Jewish settlers New York Times April 1, 1988

5. "When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle."
Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, New York Times, 14 April 1983.

6. "How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to."
Golda Meir, March 8, 1969.

7. "There was no such thing as Palestinians, they never existed."
Golda Maier Israeli Prime Minister June 15, 1969

8. "The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June 1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence is only bluff, which was born and developed after the war." Israeli General Matityahu Peled, Ha'aretz, 19 March 1972.

9. David Ben Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister): "If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?"
Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp121.

9a. Ben Gurion also warned in 1948 : "We must do everything to insure they ( the Palestinians) never do return." Assuring his fellow Zionists that Palestinians will never come back to their homes, "The old will die and the young will forget."

10. "We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves." Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.

11. "Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it."
Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.

12. "We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimeter of Eretz Israel... Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours."
Rafael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces - Gad Becker, Yediot Ahronot 13 April 1983, New York Times 14 April 1983.

13. "We must do everything to ensure they [the Palestinian refugees] never do return"
David Ben-Gurion, in his diary, 18 July 1948, quoted in Michael Bar Zohar's Ben-Gurion: the Armed Prophet, Prentice-Hall, 1967, p. 157.

15. "We should prepare to go over to the offensive. Our aim is to smash Lebanon, Trans-Jordan, and Syria. The weak point is Lebanon, for the Moslem regime is artificial and easy for us to undermine. We shall establish a Christian state there, and then we will smash the Arab Legion, eliminate Trans-Jordan; Syria will fall to us. We then bomb and move on and take Port Said, Alexandria and Sinai."
David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff. From Ben- Gurion, A Biography, by Michael Ben-Zohar, Delacorte, New York 1978.

16. "We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population."
Israel Koenig, "The Koenig Memorandum"

17. "Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist. Not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahlal arose in the place of Mahlul; Kibbutz Gvat in the place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in the place of Huneifis; and Kefar Yehushua in the place of Tal al-Shuman. There is not a single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population."
Moshe Dayan, address to the Technion, Haifa, reported in Haaretz, April 4, 1969.

18. "We walked outside, Ben-Gurion accompanying us. Allon repeated his question, What is to be done with the Palestinian population?' Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture which said 'Drive them out!'"
Yitzhak Rabin, leaked censored version of Rabin memoirs, published in the New York Times, 23 October 1979.

19. Rabin's description of the conquest of Lydda, after the completion of Plan Dalet. "We shall reduce the Arab population to a community of woodcutters and waiters"
Uri Lubrani, PM Ben-Gurion's special adviser on Arab Affairs, 1960. From "The Arabs in Israel" by Sabri Jiryas.

20. "There are some who believe that the non-Jewish population, even in a high percentage, within our borders will be more effectively under our surveillance; and there are some who believe the contrary, i.e., that it is easier to carry out surveillance over the activities of a neighbor than over those of a tenant. [I] tend to support the latter view and have an additional argument:...the need to sustain the character of the state which will henceforth be Jewish...with a non-Jewish minority limited to 15 percent. I had already reached this fundamental position as early as 1940 [and] it is entered in my diary."
Joseph Weitz, head of the Jewish Agency's Colonization Department. From Israel: an Apartheid State by Uri Davis, p.5.

21. "Everybody has to move, run and grab as many hilltops as they can to enlarge the settlements because everything we take now will stay ours... Everything we don't grab will go to them."

22. "It is the duty of Israeli leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism,colonialization or Jewish State without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands."
Yoram Bar Porath, Yediot Aahronot, of 14 July 1972.

23. "Spirit the penniless population across the frontier by denying it employment... Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly."
Theodore Herzl, founder of the World Zionist Organization, speaking of the Arabs of Palestine,Complete Diaries, June 12, 1895 entry.
Time to start in. I don't go much for any kind of bashing. I believe that the terrorist war is really a war of religious zealots vs politicians. I guess it doesn't take much to find a passage in your favorite religious text that says killing is okay. Works for the Muslims. Works especially well for Evangelical Xians.

Could you really imagine a god that speaks to George Bush, Osama Bin Ladin, or Pat Robertson?

I don't think god really needs your money. Why not send it to your local food bank? Odds are you may need its services sooner or later . . .

Initial Post

WHo will read this? I don't really know. I want this blog to be a little more personal than Jim Jones Koolaid Patrol. So here, I will entertain myself with collections of blasphemies against the dominant faiths of the world. I will seek out and pubicize religious hypocricies as I find them. I promise that I will respect all those who embrace their faith in a loving god, and smite those who would believe that their god hates anyone or anything. Since I am a former xian (off the bible for 20 yrs now!), there is where my focus will lie.
