A Little More On Islam Awareness Week
The effective way to counter Muslim propaganda.
April 11, 2016
Hugh Fitzgerald

Several days ago Robert Spencer posted the photograph of a sign advertising a Muslim propaganda meeting, as part of a college-campus “Islam Awareness Week,” to which someone had helpfully added the annotation “Sura 9:5.” This cryptic addition directed would-be visitors to Qur’an 9:5, the “Verse of the Sword” that commands Muslims thus:

And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

That’s not a verse Muslim propagandists are likely to want to have the attention of non-Muslims drawn to; nor are they likely to want non-Muslims to become aware of other, quite similar verses preaching hate and homicide, such as Sura 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, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.


The more general and vague the charges made against Islam, the less effective and more easily challenged they will be; the more specific and textually-based those charges, the harder it will be for Muslims to ignore them. “Islam hates us” can be waved away; a Qur’anic passage, or several dozen, commanding Muslims to “Kill the Unbelievers,” can not. But don’t wait for last week’s scribbler of “Sura 9:5” to reappear; rather, pitch in yourself, follow his lead and expand upon his work with your own supply of pre-printed Post-It-Note lists of passages or personages from Qur’an, Hadith, and Sira, ready for affixing to a larger pro-Islam propaganda poster, whenever one crosses your path. For which would you rather encounter at this point in our collective confusion and doubt, on a college campus or a local mosque, accompanied by a Middle Eastern dinner and bake sale — an evening of “Islam Awareness” or what is a very different thing, an evening of Islam Awareness?

A Little More On Islam Awareness Week
I'm not against islam but what tired old crap is an "awareness week"?

All this crap is just exhausted. Why are there young people growing up and getting into something from the sixties? Don't they want to rebel and have a sexist-male-chauvanist week.... wait, they are!
