Getting it might kill you, refusing it means no shopping and getting fired: Links 3, August 19, 2021

1. One Conservative MPP (MLA) so far has refused the vaxx and stated that neither he, nor any other Canadian must ever be forced OR coerced to take something they dont want.

Doug Ford is not in as much trouble as he should be. But the day is young.

2. Report: Taliban Killing People Found with Bibles on Their Phones

The Taliban is killing people in Afghanistan they find with copies of the Bible on their mobile phones, a Christian non-profit announced on Tuesday.

The Taliban, a radical Islamist terrorist organization, seized leadership of the country on Sunday after surrounding the nation’s capital, Kabul, prompting former President Ashraf Ghani to flee. The Taliban ruled Afghanistan until 2001, when the United States invaded the country, and established a brutal regime that regularly persecuted political dissidents, religious minorities, women, and anyone considered to be violating Islamic law, or sharia.

3. Greece: Human traffickers caught giving migrants fake Covid papers for flights

This news of fake Covid papers is no surprise.  Many human traffickers (including organized NGOs) view themselves as “humanitarians” as they pursue their profitable ventures and assist in crime. Yet the vast majority of them are not being jailed or even being held responsible for their complicity. The Greek arrests represent a positive turn that should be replicated elsewhere.

Last year, a Greek minister accused multiple charities of “working with human traffickers to form a refugee-smuggling network that stretches from Somalia to the UK.”

The problem of illegal Muslim migrants being aided and abetted by human traffickers and smuggles is increasing across the EU in the face of the laxity of European officials, which serves as an open invitation.

4. And it began. Taliban murdering and raping their way around Afghanistan

5. Kids in Oz being forcibly removed from parents after a + Covid test. If this is a 40 cycle+ PCR this is doubly outrageous.

6. Can’t make out what is said here, but it claims to be shoppers without a vaxx pass denied entrance to a food store in France

More to come. Thank you Kalloi, Oz-Rita, M., EB., Johnny U., Darcy, PC., Richard, Sassy, Daniel Koren, Debbie, Chase S. and MANY more. Thank you all. Crazy times and so glad you all are enriching each other at this site.

    ““For you is your religion and for me is mine”
    Muhammad preached “No compulsion in religion.”
    (Qur’an, Verse 2:256) an abrogated Meccan Verse…

    The Muslim Game:

    Muslims quote verse 2:256 from the Qur’an to prove what a tolerant religion Islam is. The verse reads in part, “Let there be no compulsion in religion; truth stands out clearly from error…”

    The Truth:
    One trick of apologists is to quote from earlier verses in the Quran to portray Islam as peaceful without mentioning that they are superseded by later, more violent verses.

    The Muslim who offers verse 2:256 may or may not know that it is from one of the earliest Surahs (or chapters) from the Medinan period. It was “revealed” at a time when the Muslims had just arrived in Medina after being chased out of Mecca. They needed to stay in the good graces of the stronger tribes around them, many of which were Jewish. It was around this time, for example, that Muhammad decided to have his followers change the direction of their prayer from Mecca to Jerusalem.

    But Muslims today pray toward Mecca. The reason for this is that Muhammad issued a later command that abrogated (or nullified) the first. In fact, abrogation is a very important principle to keep in mind when interpreting the Qur’an – and verse 2:256 in particular – because later verses (in chronological terms) are said to abrogate any earlier ones that may be in contradiction (Qur’an 2:106, 16:101).

    Muhammad’s message was far closer to peace and tolerance during his early years at Mecca when he didn’t have an army and was trying to pattern his new religion after Christianity. This changed dramatically after he attained the power to conquer, which he eventually used with impunity to bring other tribes into the Muslim fold. Contrast verse 2:256 with Surahs 9 and 5, which were the last “revealed”, and it is easy to see why Islam has been anything but a religion of peace from the time of Muhammad to the present day.

    There is some evidence that verse 2:256 may not have been intended for Muslims at all but is instead meant to be a warning to other religions concerning their treatment of Muslims. Verse 193 of the same Surahinstructs Muslims to “fight with them (non-Muslims) until there is no more persecution and religion is only for Allah”. This reinforces the narcissistic nature of Islam, which places Muslims above non-Muslims, and applies a hugely different value and standard of treatment to both groups.

    Though most Muslims today reject the practice of outright forcing others into changing their religion, forced conversion has been a part of Islamic history since Muhammad first picked up a sword. As he is recorded in many places as saying, “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…” (See Bukhari 2:25)

    Muhammad put his words into practice. When he marched into Mecca with an army, one of his very first tasks was to destroy idols at the Kabah, which had been devoutly worshiped by the Arabs, (including Mohamad too) for centuries. By eliminating these objects of worship, he destroyed the religion of the people and supplanted it with his own. Later, he ordered that Jews and Christians who would not convert to Islam be expelled from Arabia. Does forcing others to choose between their homes or their faith sound like “no compulsion in religion?”

    According to Muslim historians, Muhammad eventually ordered people to attend prayers at the mosque to the point of burning alive those who didn’t comply. He also ordered that children who reached a certain age be beaten if they refused to pray.

    Interestingly, even the same contemporary Muslims who quote 2:256 usually believe in Islamic teachings that sound very much like a religious compulsion. These would be the laws punishing apostasy by death (or imprisonment, for females), and the institutionalized discrimination against religious minorities under Islamic rule that is sometimes referred to as “dhimmitude”.

    Islamic law explicitly prohibits non-Muslims from sharing their faith and even includes the extortion of money from them in the form of a tax called the Jizyah. Those who refuse to pay this arbitrary amount are put to death. If this isn’t compulsion, then what is?”
