Lubbock Muslim community braces for backlash

Members of Lubbock’s Muslim community reacted with surprise and dismay at the news of the arrest Wednesday of Saudi-born Lubbock resident Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari on charges of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.
Imam Samer Altabaa of the Islamic Center of the South Plains had just begun to contact people in the Saudi community when contacted for comment Thursday. He said he did not know Aldawsari and had not heard of him before the arrest. He also said that no one in the Saudi community seemed to know Aldawsari, who identified himself as Muslim on his Facebook page.
“They are shocked,” he said of the people he contacted.
The Muslim community is bracing itself for possible retaliation. The Islamic Student Center has been vandalized multiple times, and Altabaa said Lubbock police have agreed to provide security in the coming days for the Islamic Center and the Islamic Student Center.
Altabaa said that retaliatory acts are often committed by people who do not know about Islam.
“We faced this before. We are afraid because there are some people that are ignorant or that don’t have enough information about Islam.”
Altabaa added, “They don’t know that (Aldawsari) is an alien to Islam … He is the enemy of humanity, not only the religion.”
LOL! Laying the “taqiyya” on a bit thick, are we Mr. Altabaa?
Altabaa expressed appreciation for the role intelligence sources had in capturing the suspect.
“They are keeping our country safe from these terrorists,” he said.
When asked about the Quran’s stance on violent and terrorist acts, Altabaa responded, “The Quran always calls all Muslims to commit to peace, to live with peace, especially with non-Muslims.”
*Cough, cough, cough* Sorry, I just spit my coffee out all over the keyboard. “Always,” you say? Gee, that’s one of the biggest loads of crap I’ve read in a long time! As it only takes one verse to counter his lie, I think I’ll pull out just one of the 109+ verses that calls on all Muslims to fight against non-Muslims:
“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).” Unholy Qur’an 9:123
He added, “God sent (Mohammed) to have mercy in the world, and to spread mercy on all creation of the world.”
Muhammad the Merciful? Yeah, right. That’s why Muhammad had so many Jews and non-believers killed in Medina and elsewhere, right? How wonderfully merciful of Muhammad…
Quoting a translation of the Quran, Altabaa said, “Whoever kills one person, (it is as) if he killed all human beings; he is equal to a person who killed all human beings. And whoever saves one person’s life, (it is as) if he saved all human beings. The Quran makes it clear to every Muslim.”
Uh… Not really:
Here we have yet another example of Muzzies quoting out of context in order to pull the wool over the eyes of the infidels. That verse he cited is directed towards the Jews, NOT the Muslims, and is actually a condemnation of the actions of the Israelies (Jews). Notice how he carefully avoided quoting the beginning of that verse which starts out, “That is why We laid it down for the Israelites that…” You see, had he quoted the entire verse, it would have been obvious that it was the Jews who were commanded to uphold this decree and NOT the Muslims, as he fatuously claims when he says that the Qur’an ‘makes it clear to every Muslim.”
Furthermore, he deftly truncated his recital because the rest of that verse and the next says: “[5:32 ( cont. )] … Our messengers went to them [the Jews] with clear proofs and revelations, but most of them, after all this, are still transgressing. [5:33] – The just retribution for those who fight Allah and His messenger, and commit horrendous crimes, is to be killed, or crucified, or to have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or to be banished from the land. This is to humiliate them in this life, then they suffer a far worse retribution in the Hereafter.”
So, no; the Qur’an doesn’t make it clear to the Muzzies that killing one person is like killing the whole of humanity—it makes that clear only to the Jews. What it does make clear to the Muzzies, however, is that those who fight in any way, shape, or form against Islam are to be killed, or crucified, or to have their hands and feet cut off…
“Muslims are people of peace,” said the imam, “because this is what Islam means.”
Sheesh! For the umpteenth time, Islam does NOT mean peace! It means submission, as in submitting to Allah and his messenger [CLICK HERE]. This imam guy is either a liar or a complete moron. Take your pick. I’ll go with “liar” because he obviously knows that the Qur’an allows for Muzzies to lie about Islam to non-believers [CLICK HERE].
