Fitzgerald: Arab racism and black Muslims

You can find online complaints about Arab racism from black Muslims (or Black Muslims, that is members of the Nation of Islam, who are not considered real Muslims by the Arabs) in this country. Despite the universalist claims made for Islam, it is, and has always been, a vehicle for Arab supremacism. The reasons are not hard to find. As Anwar Shaikh (an ex-Muslim who was born in Pakistan and died in Wales in 2006) noted in his book Islam, The Arab National Religion, the Arabs consider themselves to be superior to other Muslims because they “received” the message from Allah. It was given to them and was in their language. Non-Arab Muslims are supposed to read the Qur’an, or listen to its recital, only in Arabic. Any other version, in any other language, is not the same thing.

Compare this to the missionaries for Christianity, who in some cases became extraordinary linguists in order to study native languages and dialects and translate the Bible into them. And they did this for languages that in many cases had never had a written form — thereby helping to preserve the language for use, and for study.

And when a Muslim prays, wherever in the world he may be, he is directed to pray — it is a matter of fantastic importance — toward Mecca, toward the Hejaz, toward Arabia, the center of his being.

And the Sunnah, one should not forget, is at least as important as the Qur’an. Some Arabs even say that it is possible to imagine a guide to life with the Sunnah alone, but not with the Qur’an alone. Both matter. And what is the Sunnah? It consists of “practice” — the customs and manners of the early Arabs, that is, of Muhammad and His Companions, that serve to gloss the Qur’an. And the Sunnah is derived from two texts — the Hadith, the written record of the sayings and acts of Muhammad, and the Sira, the biography of Muhammad, the first version of which appeared a century-and-a-half after the historical (if he was historical) Muhammad’s death. What matters is not what parts of the Sira were imagined or which Hadith were made up, and by what means, but which parts Muslims take to be the genuine details of the life of Muhammad, and what Hadith they believe to be the most “authentic” in the compilations of the most “authoritative” — by their lights — muhaddithin.

As Anwar Shaikh notes, the Arabs of Arabia needed their own “religion” to compete with, but not to be completely unlike, the earlier-in-time monotheisms of the lands they first conquered. These lands were inhabited by Christians and Jews. The Jews were not confined to the Land of Israel, but were to be found living, and for a long time, in many parts of the Middle East. They were living in Iran and present-day Iraq, and of course in Arabia itself — for how else could they keep being encountered by Muhammad, in Mecca, Medina (Yathrib), the Khaybar Oasis? The Arab “religion” that they created is clearly the result of taking bits and pieces of pagan Arab pre-Islamic lore (the djinn, for example), mixed with misunderstood and misremembered bits of Judaism and Christianity.

This amalgam was presented to the conquered peoples, the Christians and Jews, as not the New and Improved Version of their faiths (as modern Western marketers might have done with a detergent), but rather as something else — the True Version of Their Faith, which they had misunderstood and distorted or perverted. This made it less strange a faith, and those elements of pre-existing beliefs to be found within it, however jumbled, made it easier for Islam to insinuate itself into the minds of non-Muslims who often converted purely as a practical matter. They did so in order to join the side of the conquerors, to be free of the many disabilities that as non-Muslims they would have to endure (the three choices were: to be killed, to convert, or to endure forever the status of dhimmi, with all that that meant). How many Christians in America today, if they had, in perpetuity, to pay $50,000 per head to remain Christians, would do so? For how many would there be a falling off, and how many each year?

Islam has been a destroyer of other cultures and other languages. In a world that worships “diversity,” the thrust of Islam has been to efface diversity. Languages other than Arabic have received no sympathetic study or attention by Arabs or Muslim missionaries — the effort has been to efface the many languages and cultures that could once be found in the lands conquered. There are, here and there, pockets of Aramaic-speakers in some Syrian villages, a handful of Mandaeans and Yazidis (450 of whom were killed by Muslim bombs in the worst act of Muslim terror in Iraq). There are the Copts in Egypt, or what is left of them, they who once were virtually the entire population of Egypt. There are Assyrians and Chaldeans in Iraq, or what is left of them, they who were once…ditto. And so on.

The history of Arab oppression of blacks, whether those blacks became nominal Muslims or not, is too long. The history of Arab enslavement of blacks started far earlier, was much more devastating in its effects, and continued much later, than the Atlantic slave trade. A scholar has estimated that because Arabs specialized in seizing young black males for use in harems (contrary to the Western imagination, harems were not just for the rulers), and would castrate their hunted prey in situ in the jungle, the mortality rate among those then taken by slave coffle to the waiting boats that would take them to the slave markets of Islam reached 90%. See “The Hideous Trade” or google that title and “Jihad Watch” for more.

Slavery is legitimate in Islam. Muhammad had slaves. Muhammad is the Perfect Man. Seventh-century Arabia allowed slavery. Seventh-century Arabia provides the Sunnah, the customs and manners that are to be followed. The Arab slave trade went up and down East Africa, with the chief entrepot for the local trade in African blacks being the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba, held by the Arab rulers of Oman. The Arabs also went deep into Central Africa, and into West Africa too, while the European slave-traders never managed to penetrate the interior, preferring to remain on the coast of West Africa and having slaves delivered to them by local tribes.

Slavery was not abolished willingly by the Arabs. It was stamped out, rather, by Western powers. There is no Arab William Wilberforce. There never has been a declaration, by any Arab leader, or government, or theological institute, that slavery is always and everywhere morally wrong. And there cannot be such a declaration, because Muslims are hemmed in by the Example of Muhammad, uswa hasana, al-insan al-kamil, and the practice of the Sunnah. If the French ended Arab enslavement of blacks in much of North Africa, it was the British — the Royal Navy — that helped stamp out the slave trade that continued between Africa and Arabia. This tale is told most fully in J. B. Kelly’s “Britain and the Persian Gulf, 1795-1880.” But the Arabs still managed, as the British presence on the seas diminished, to resurrect that slave trade, which continued into the 1960s.

In 1962, just before slavery was formally abolished — because Saudi Arabia was not yet rich from oil revenues, it had to succumb to Western pressure — 20% at least of the population consisted of black slaves. For more google “Arab slave trade in Africa,” or start here.

It is not surprising that in Dayton, a Muslim girl might have made up a story blaming black men. Nor is it surprising that the Arabs in this congregation want to move from a black neighborhood to a white one. Look at how unwelcome Arabs and Pakistanis have made black Muslims who wish to attend, in any numbers, the same mosques with them. Blacks are seen as fit fodder for conversion to Islam — without really letting potential converts know much about Islam. The proselytizers hold back so much, until their targets are deeply committed and can’t easily get out. They do this so as to swell Muslim ranks and perceived (and real) power, but are not so happy for the new converts to actually associate with Arabs and Pakistanis, who find such an association distasteful. Compare that with the welcoming practice of Christian churches, not least among those evangelicals who have become the butt of so much self-assured mockery.

Not only are most forms of art — sculpture and most painting — forbidden in Islam (look at any major museum at the “Islamic art” — Arabic calligraphy on ceramic plates, and Qur’anic calligraphy on paper), but it is difficult to conduct science within a society suffused with Islam, that discourages every sign of free and skeptical inquiry about the most important thing — Islam — and hence about everything else as well).

And then there is music. There is no Muslim equivalent to the church music of Christianity. Music is forbidden (Black Muslims in America may at times ignore this ban — one more sign of un-orthodoxy). Wherever strict Muslims are in power, they attempt to ban all kinds of music, the folk-music that naturally wells up, as it does in Afghanistan, because it responds to a universal need that the Shari’a laws do not allow to be met. The wedding-singers killed in Afghanistan, the gamelan players in Indonesia disparaged by local Muslims, the RAI singers (often Berbers) threatened or killed in Algeria — all of these are signs and symbols of the Islamic hostility to music. This does not mean that there are not singers. No one denies that there is Arabic music — that oud, those other exotic instruments, or even singers such as Umm Kalthum. But the role of music is much smaller, and it is despite Islam and its discouragement that music appears. The texts and the spirit of Islam, truly adhered to, would deny a role for music altogether. It distracts, you see: distracts from worship.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe begs to differ.

And in the earlier, pre-old-time-religion phase of her career, Rosetta Tharpe’s performance begs to differ with, and demands to ignore, just as much as does her later work, the hostility to music that is inculcated by Islam. And her many admirers — whose numbers may swell with the two examples of her art posted today — will agree.

Killing Jews In Israel
This is racism, pure and simple. And despite
efforts by supporters of Palestinian terrorism to justify the murder of innocent
civilians as national liberationor by any other euphemism, this case proves that
the Palestinian terrorists targeting of Jews and only Jews – as many as possible
– is little different in intent than otherr forms of lethal or exterminatory
anti-Jewish murders (I dont use the term anti-Semitic only because some Arabs
claim that because they too are Semites, they cant be anti-Semitic). Obviously
the numbers are different, because Israel is capable of defending its Jewish
citizens, but if it were not, the goal of Palestinian terrorist groups would not
be very different from that of previous groups intent on murdering as many Jews
as possible.
The websites of various Palestinian terrorist groups proclaim –
usually only in English and almost never in Arabic – that they have no quarrel
with the Jews,only with the Zionists. Yet they target every Jew, regardless of
his or her individual political views, and they apologize when they accidentally
kill a non-Jew, regardless of his political views. The racist acts of these
terrorist groups speak louder than their sanitized English-only anti-Zionist
websites.

Another myth is to describe Arab intentions as “moderate,” even in the face
of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
A third assumption is the
“fellowship fallacy”-that the Palestinians share Jewish values, goals and
positions. Some Israelis have met informally or in public forums with high-level
individuals from the territories who are connected to the PLO. The Israelis hear
more nuanced statements about the conflict in these discussions than are usually
heard from the PLO leadership. These words are then interpreted as reflecting
what the PLO would agree to in negotiations with Israel. Such was the case after
informal discussions with Faisal Husseini. In October1989, Husseini proclaimed,
“The Palestinian Peace Camp has won, and now leads the PLO and the Palestinian
people.”
In the speeches quoted above there was no doubt that the Arab’s
ultimate goal was the destruction of Israel. The attitude toward Husseini
demonstrated the willingness of many Israelis to overestimate words of
encouragement and to underestimate the contradictory and inflammatory rhetoric
he said to others. This scenario continued under Yasser Arafat whose guarantees
about his yearning for peace would, incredibly, be accepted with greater
credibility than his speeches and statements to the Arab media and public, and
the racist curricula taught in Palestinian schools about Jews and the need to
destroy Israel.

Europeand Ignore Arab Racism
[2006]
A European Union-sponsored
conference on “Racism, Xenophobia and the Media” being held today in Vienna does
not include anti-Semitism on its agenda, despite flagrant anti-Semitism in the
media of some attending Arab and islamic countries. The decision to ignore
anti-Semitism appears to have been made in an effort by the European Union, to
appease Muslims. Since Muslims attending the conference are sure to
dragout their bigoted Zionism = racism line, israel has decided to not attennd
the lynching. The anti-Semetic racism of the supposedly anti-racist
conference is further reinforced by the failure of congerence organisers to
invite Jewish and Israeli journalists to give presentations at the
conference. A report on Islamophobia will be discussed by Muslim media
represenatives.

The Dance of Deception… the real dynamic is that Israel is the target of
highly organized and funded racism. The targeting of Israel is a continuation of
the racism Jews have experienced in the Arab world for over a thousand years, a
racism that currently manifests in the form of organized terrorist attacks,
misinformation campaigns, manipulation of the UN in demonizing Israel, and the
global promotion of the goal of destroying the Jewish-majority state. Part and
parcel to the organized targeting of Israel is the mistreatment of Palestinians
by most of the Arab world, used as pawns by openly imperialistic Arab regimes in
their racist campaign against Israel.
Israel’s economic success, largely
self-generated, is depicted in the misinformation campaign as the consequence of
Palestinian suffering. But the real dynamic is that oppressive, terrorist
regimes, such as the one that rules Palestinian society, undermine the potential
for eventual prosperity. Prosperity does not always depend on colonial
exploitation, and suffering and poverty do not result only from foreign-based
oppression.
Had the public been accurately and historically informed, it
might have demanded that pressure be put on Arab regimes to give equal rights to
Palestinians, as well as women and minority ethnic groups, in their countries,
and to stop supporting or funding or organizing terrorism against Israel. The
public might have demanded safety for Jews who live in Arab-majority lands,
including the Palestinian territories. Activists might not have limited their
concern to those Palestinians who lost their lands upon fleeing invading Arab
armies in 1948; they might equally have demanded fair compensation for Middle
Eastern Jews and their descendants whose land and property were confiscated by
Arab countries fifty years ago. Concerned activists might have organized against
Palestinian terrorist groups, and their networks of support (granted, a more
difficult and dangerous activity than organizing against Israel). If such
international pressure worked, Israel’s existence would no longer be threatened,
Jews would perhaps be able to live in safety in Arab majority lands, and Israel
would have no reason to maintain the occupation.

BBC charity accused of funding terrorist

By JONNY PAUL,
JERUSALEM POST CORRESPONDENT IN

LONDON

The BBC has denied charges that money raised by a BBC charity was used to recruit and train the terrorists involved in the 7/7 terror attacks on London that killed 52 people in 2005.

The BBC’s own Newsnight current affairs programme reported on Tuesday night’s broadcast that the BBC’s Children in Need charity had donated around £20,000 to the Leeds Community School, Yorkshire, between 1999 and 2002 which went towards funding the activities of the terrorists behind the July 2005 attacks.

On Thursday the BBC said that there is no evidence that the money was used for terrorist activity.

The school funded and shared premises with the Iqra Islamic book shop where the suicide bombers Muhammad Siddique Khan and Shezhad Tanweer regularly met. Khan and Tanweer attempted to radicalize youths by showing propaganda films at the bookshop, which became a regular meeting place for young Muslims at the time – including Jermaine Lindsay, who went on to become the King’s Cross bomber.

The two handed out DVDs and books about Bosnia and Chechnya and held Arabic classes in a back room of the store. They also produced a leaflet in the wake of September 11 blaming the attacks on a “Jewish conspiracy”.

The school also received large sums from other public bodies and paid for adventure weekends, used to recruit potential Muslim radicals, such as a rafting trip to Wales a month before the London attacks. Tanweer and Khan went on the trip, along with Khalid Khaliq, who this year was jailed for terrorism offences.

Khaliq’s house was raided by police last year. They found books with titles such as Zaad-e-Mujahid [essential provision for holy fighters] and The Absent Obligation, a book about jihad, as well as 250 copies of a booklet entitled The War on Terrorism: the Final Crusade.

Both Khan, the leader of the bombers, and Tanweer, the Aldgate bomber, were trustees of the bookshop. Khan also worked at the school and ran the adventure courses in Wales.

The bookshop and the school were registered charities. The bookshop claimed, according to the UK Charity Commission, that its aim was “the advancement of the Islamic faith,” while the school’s aim was said to be to “advance the education of Pakistani and Bangladeshi pupils.”

Martin Gilbertson, an IT technician who worked at the school and bookshop, said that he had been concerned about the activities of Tanweer and Khan.

“They blamed everything on the ‘Jewish conspiracy‚’ they hated

Western culture; it was like living with jihad on a daily basis,” he said.

On Wednesday, David Ramsden, chief executive of Children in Need, said: “I’m incredibly concerned that we did make an award to Leeds Community School over nine years ago, and any allegation that any funding we’ve given to any project has been misused and not used to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people makes me concerned and very sad.

“I can reassure the British public that we are very careful in who we fund and this allegation is a very rare one for us, but one that causes a great deal of concern.”

However on Thursday, the BBC said the money had been given in “good faith,” and that there was no evidence to show the money was used for terrorist activity.

“The grants made by BBC Children in Need to Leeds Community School, itself a charity registered with the Charity Commission, were given in good faith in 1998 and 1999,” said Hellen Martin, media relations manager at the BBC.

“No evidence has been produced that the money they received was used for terrorist activity. Clearly if there is an allegation of fraud, then it is a matter for the police. BBC Children In Need distributes more than £30 million in grants every year, greatly benefiting disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

“BBC Children in Need does everything it possibly can to make sure that the public money is entirely used to benefit these children.”

Children in Need says its mission is to “positively change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.”

On the charity’s Web site, its mission statement says that support is given in the form of grants to organizations “working with children who may have experienced mental, physical or sensory disabilities; behavioral or psychological disorders; are living in poverty or situations of deprivation; or suffering through distress, abuse or neglect.

“The size and scale of the BBC Children in Need Appeal means that we’re able to give grants to hundreds of different organizations, some of which are very small and don’t have the resources to fund-raise for themselves.”

In 2006, the BBC Children in Need Appeal raised over £33m. Last month, the BBC was fined a record £400,000 by media watchdog Ofcom for misleading its audiences by “faking” phone-in competitions. A Children in Need appeal in 2005 was part of the scandal.

“The BBC deceived its audience by faking winners of competitions and deliberately conducting competitions unfairly,” Ofcom said. http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1219218613539&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull

The BBC tonight is admitting what many of it critics have expected for years. It is biased. Leaks to British newspapers say top BBC executives have acknowledged that Britain’s largest broadcast has promoted left-wing views and anti-Christian sentiments. And those executives also admitted the BBC is guilty of being anti-American. Oh, my goodness. One senior BBC official said bias is now so deeply embedded in the BBC culture, it will be almost impossible to remove it. They can give me a call, I have a few suggestions for them, what they can do with that anti-American bias. I think we can clean it up in quick order.
