Paki Muslim Dress Code

Since the conversion to Islam, there has been an incessant effort to eradicate everything to do with Maldivian past and culture. There is a reluctance, and even downright opposition to the study of early history. Islam seems to demand that - what they see as - the contemptible past before Islamic faith is forgotten. All artefacts preceding Islamic time have been systematically destroyed up to the present.
Now a large number of Maldivians have discarded Maldivian and western attire and moved on to the Pakistani Muslim dress code. And their numbers are growing everyday. Everywhere you can see people who dress like Kashmiri jihadis and Afghan Taliban.
No men except the mullahs on Friday are wearing the Arab dress but the move to Pakistani Muslim dress is maybe a way of getting closer to Arabia. Many women are already bundled up like Saudis. Soon we will have Maldivian men in full Arab regalia?
The quote below from one of the best books written about Maldives is worth reading and contemplating.

"Is the fate of gradually becoming an Arab nation the Maldive Islanders' only option? This is the Maldivian dilemma since they made the decision to accept the Arabs as their undisputed cultural masters and began to sever their links with their own past. Nowadays Maldivians are culturally restless people who can never be at ease. The intense indoctrination of the 1980s and 90s, when Islamization was imposed on the islands at a much higher gear than at any time in the nation's history, has made Maldivians feel uncozy in their own country. The changes brought about have been of such magnitude and in such a short time, that there is now a whole young generation of Divehi people who, having not known how things were previously, take for granted that their home nation has always been so orthodox and impersonal."

The sword and the tongue

Early this year a cartoon unleashed a wave of denunciations, outrage and frustration and violence across the Muslim world. Mobs of angry Muslims rampaged through Europe, the Middle East and Asia in protest.
Now many Muslims around the world are offended and angry again. Muslim religious leaders are lashing out because Pope Benedict XVI in an academic lecture about the compatibility of faith and reason quoted the 14th-century Byzantine emperor, Manuel II Paleologos.

What did this 14th-century Emperor say?
In a dialogue with a Persian scholar, Manuel II questioned the teachings of Islam's prophet, Muhammad. He declared "Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."

The earliest surviving Maldivian government record, etched onto copper in 1194 records that Buddhist monks from the island of Isdhoo in Laamu atoll were taken in triumph to Malé and beheaded by 'the great king Gadanaadeethiya the Prosperous, the uplifter of the noble Lunar Dynasty... defender of the entire hundred thousand islands.' Pursuing a policy of Islamisation, the king 'refrained from killing those infidels who entered the faith of the noble Prophet Muhammad, got them to utter shahaadhath and freed them having performed circumcision on them.'

LAKUMDEENAKUMWALYADEEN - The myth of "Muslim Tolerance"

Ali bin Abu Taleb beheading Nasr bin al-Hareth in the presence of Mohammed and his companions.
Critically analyzing Islam is not a difficult task, as the writings and history of the 1400 year Islamic movement are quite extensive. The difficulty arises when anyone identifies any possible fault or point of critics whatsoever.
Muslims are hyper-sensitive to any criticism or observation that does not glorify and honor their ‘best’ religion and in particular their prophet, ‘Muhammad’.
Whereas all other religions seem to be able to survive all sorts of arguments and disparaging comments, Islam tolerates no such dissent or discussion of any kind. In Islamic lands the punishment for insulting the prophet is the same as it has always been …death.
This sort of intimidation has proven to be very effective in lands which are fully Islamic. Muslims yesterday and today are terrified of
the response by Islamic fanatics should they accidentally disrespect the Qur’an or say something negative about the prophet or accepted teachings. You can criticize leaders and lay alike only by saying they are not Islamic enough, but suggest that the theology is flawed or needs reforming, be prepared to be dispatched to hell very quickly. Non-Muslims have also suffered at the hands of ‘believers’ by making ‘insensitive’ comments about the religion or their prophet. The first documented violent acts of the religion were when Muhammad attacked and killed several of his critics, which seems to provide Muslims today all the justification they need to continue that practice.
In Islam it is still the year 1427.
The more Islamic a state is, the more its women are shrouded and confined, the more its minorities are despised - and the more freedom of thought and speech are crushed.

A good muslim and friend of Maldives

The Times Online reports on September 15, 2006
Dubai Sheikh accused over camel boys
A legal case has been filed in a US district court alleging that the governor of Dubai and his brother enslaved about 30,000 children over the past 30 years for use as camel jockeys.
The claim, which is based on international laws banning slavery and child labour, names Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Governor of Dubai and Vice-President of the United Arab Emirates, and Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, as well as others. The brothers, who are among the world’s most famous racehorse owners, are accused of trafficking boys as young as 2 from Bangladesh, Sudan and southern Asia. The case has been filed in Florida, where the defendants have property, on behalf of six parents. Lawyers are seeking class-action status on behalf of about 30,000 children.

A search of the website of the President of Maldives confirms that this sheik accused of camel boys is indeed a good friend of the Maldives. Maybe if I search further I will dicover that this sheik has educated a few Maldivians in Islam and maybe contributed to a mosque or two. Or even contributed towards the in-vitro fertilization of babies for Maldivians.
Here is a small list of the affectionate messages between the Maldivian President and our Arab brother - no mention of camel boys in these exchanges.

Three types of Maldivian muslims

There are two main types of Maldivians when it comes to faith. Muslims and Infidels. The Muslims are the majority. The infidels - the athiests, Christians, Buddhists, Hindhus and assorted pagans are the minority. They are not recognized by the state and the people and have no rights to practice their faith or worship.
Maldivian Muslims can be broadly divided into three categories. One is the "hardcore" Muslim. They believe that Muslims should wipe Israel off the map, that the bombings and murders committed around the world in the name of Islam by Muslim terror groups is justified. They are not fazed by the atrocities but instead embrace the maiming, torture and killing as part of Allah's grand design for mankind and the world. They know that Osama bin Laden and their ilk is carrying out the will of Allah and they are with him all the way. They justify their actions by reference to Islamic texts.
The second type is the so-called "moderate". They are naive and ill-informed of Islam. When you tell them that the Taliban outlawed the flying of kites or that "thighing" prepubescent girls is allowed in Iran and Saudi Arabia, they will respond "but that is not in Islam". They will tell you that flying the planes into the twin towers or the bombings in Bali are not allowed in Islam. They will say - "Islam is not what Osama Bin Laden and other terrorists practice. The terrorists are not following the footsteps of Muhammad. They are not doing anything that Muhammad did do. If we accept Islam, we must not accept terrorism. Jihad is a duty of every Muslim under certain conditions. It is inseparable from Islam under certain conditions."
They will tell you that Mohammed was so good he married the women left widows by war as otherwise these poor women would be exploited. If you told them that Mohammed instigated the attacks and destroyed entire villages and killed off the men and took the women and children into slavery, they will say - "that is not true".
They present Islam as a lovey-dovey cult that abhors the use of force, is uncomfortable with slavery and capital punishment, would never fight except in self-defense and actively welcomes other faiths. These Islamic apologists and self-important politicized academics constantly insist that Islam is peaceful and that anyone who says otherwise is ignorant. These people cannot grasp the fact that when Mohammed beheaded a man and took his wife to bed it is rape and murder.
The third type is the professional Muslim. These Maldivians have learned the Koran, the Hadith and the Siyarath in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Egypt, Malaysia etc. They know nothing else. They have no scientific knowledge. They abhor the use of reason and logic. All they have been taught is Islam and to make their livelihood by teaching what they learned in the Muslim madrasa. This is their vocation and their means of earning some money. And of course, they are all male because women are lacking in intelligence according to their Prophet Mohammed.
I leave the Maldivian Christians, Buddhists, Hindhus and assorted pagans for another posting.

New Book -The Truth about Mohammed

"Spencer uses only Muslim sources for the facts about Muhammad’s life—the Koran itself, plus the hadiths and other Islamic documents that Muslims themselves accept as reliable. The resulting picture is at once instructive and horrifying."

A new book about Mohammed Prophet of Islam is coming out soon. Here is the advance review by Elizabeth Kantor. Read on.

Robert Spencer outdoes himself in this book—in courage (who else would dare to write a warts-and-all biography of Muhammad?) but also in marshalling solid evidence that the real “root causes” of jihad violence are in Muhammad’s own character and the teachings of the religion he founded. Spencer uses only Muslim sources for the facts about Muhammad’s life—the Koran itself, plus the hadiths and other Islamic documents that Muslims themselves accept as reliable. The resulting picture is at once instructive and horrifying. It’s often said that Islamists are bent on imposing the standards of the 7th Century on the modern world. The Truth about Muhammad actually shows the reader the savage time and place in which Islam emerged. Spencer opens a window on 7th-Century Arabia: the brutality, the superstition, the abuse of women. He shows precisely how both the conditions of Muhammad’s time and the prophet’s own actions continue to shape modern Islam. Did you know that Muslims used to face Jerusalem, not Mecca, to pray?—that is, until the breakdown of an accord between Muhammad and a Jewish group. (The repercussions of that failed agreement are still being felt in Muslim-Jewish relations today.) And were you aware that the requirement of four male witnesses to prove a sex crime comes from a “revelation” Muhammad received, clearing the name of his favorite wife? (Today, up to 75% of the women jailed in Pakistan are there because they’re victims of rape—who are judged to be fornicators and adulteresses because they can’t prove rape by Muhammad’s nearly impossible-to-meet standard.) A similar “revelation of convenience” allowed Muhammad to marry his own daughter-in-law. This book is full of fascinating and informative facts and connections between what happened in the 7th Century and what’s going on in Islam today. The tragic fact is that, for Muslims, religious awe—respect for the majesty and justice of God—is inextricably bound to the savage culture Muhammad came out of, to his own flawed character and to his violent and lust-driven teachings. To defeat the jihadists who want to kill us, we need to understand them. The Truth about Muhammad is an important contribution to that project.

Mohamed had sex between the thighs of very young girls

The Maldivian mullahs will soon demand the holy sunnah of "thighing" to be introduced to Maldives. It is recorded in Hadith and well-known fatwas that Mohamed inserted his penis between the thighs of young girls for sexual gratification. The following is such a fatwa:

"Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the one after whom there is no [further] prophet.After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwahs (religious decrees) reviewed the question presented to the grand Mufti Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Shemary, the question forwarded to the committee by the grand scholar of the committee with reference number 1809 issued on 3/8/1421(Islamic calendar). The inquirer asked the following:

"'It has become wide spread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufa'khathat of the children (mufa'khathat literally translated means "placing between the thighs" which means placing the male member between the thighs of a child). What is the opinion of scholars knowing full well that the prophet, the peace and prayer of Allah be upon him, also practiced the "thighing" of Aisha - the mother of believers - may Allah be please with her.?'

"After the committee studied the issue, they gave the following reply: 'It has not been the practice of the Muslims throughout the centuries to resort to this unlawful practice that has come to our countries from pornographic movies that the kufar (infidels) and enemies of Islam send. As for the Prophet, peace and prayer of Allah be upon him, thighing his fiancée Aisha. She was six years of age and he could not have intercourse with her due to her small age. That is why [the prophet] peace and prayer of Allah be upon him placed HIS [MALE] MEMBER BETWEEN HER THIGHS AND MASSAGED IT SOFTLY, as the apostle of Allah had control of his [male] member not like other believers.'"

Note how the fatwa tries to shift the blame for Mohamed's dirty deed on the Western film industry?

Kill and be killed

Wherever there’s religious bloodshed anywhere in the world, it’s invariably Muslims versus someone else. Could this be a coincidence?
It is the teachings of Islam that demand constant fighting and killing. All the killing and all the war is explained to the people as the “will of Allah.”
The Believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed.--- Allah's commandment in Koran 9:112
Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.--- Allah's commandment in Koran 9:5
Fight disbelievers until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.--- Allah's commandment in Koran 8:39

Jew-hatred is a staple of Muslim rhetoric. The Koran says “The last hour will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, so Jews will hide behind stones and trees and the Stone and the tree will say ‘O Muslim, ‘O servant of God! There is a Jew behind me; come and kill him.’” Muhammed called Jews “the descendants of apes and pigs.”

For over 50 years, tiny Israel has been fighting for survival in a sea of Muslims. Israel has been attacked nonstop since the the United Nations gave the Jews a small plot of desert to call their own. But even that tiny piece of land is too much for Islam to tolerate. The “Middle East” is a land mass of approximately 2,061,000 square miles. Israel is a tiny country of about 8,000 square miles. Yet, in all of that space, Islam cannot bear the thought of Jews living on “their land.”

Islamic leaders put forth the belief that Israeli land is Muslim land. Islamic teachers believe that Muslims were there first. This is incorrect, since Judaism has been in the Middle East for at least 4,000 years and Islam only about 1,300 years. Even if one looks only at the Arab/Jew combination, leaving religion out of the equation, the Jewish people were in power in the Middle East several times throughout history. It is apparent that Jews have been in the Middle East just as Arabs were throughout history. Later, many of these Arab Jews became Arab Christians after the death of Jesus and the birth of Christianity, which was also in the Middle East prior to Islam. In fact, there were and still are Arab Jews and Christians.
Christianity, for the most part, has been purged from the Middle East by Muslims. While some countries have a small minority of Christians, they are persecuted and tormented and in many cases, they are not even allowed to be full citizens of the country of their birth because they are not Muslim. In most Islamic countries, non-Muslims cannot own land and their children are not allowed to attend the better schools.
Islamic leaders don’t care about the plight of the Palestinian people and have never cared about them. Aid money has poured in for the Palestinians to build schools and hospitals and the life of the average Palestinian never improves. The Islamic leaders and the Palestinian Liberation Organization have taken that aid money and lined their own pockets with it and used it to wage war against Israel while telling Palestinian women to have more babies to sacrifice for Islam. All the while, Islamic leaders tell the Palestinians their hellish lives are solely because of the evil Jew.
Palestinian refugees, who have been forced to live in camps in neighboring Arab/Islamic countries for decades, are treated very badly. They have no rights and cannot find jobs, and the camps are a breeding ground for the hatred that Islamic leaders need to keep the war alive.
There is not a day that passes that someone, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, does not die at the hands of a follower of Islam.
Whether it is the attack on 9/11, London, Madrid, Russia, Bali, India, Sudan, Nigeria, Thailand and so many countries aound the world, the common denominator in all these attacks is Islam. Attacks have been thwarted in Australia, Canada, England, France, and the United States.
Islam, the self proclaimed “religion” of peace and love cannot stop killing even its own people in the name of Islam and Allah. The split within Islam began the day Mohammed died and it has grown more violent ever since. Muslims blow up mosques and kill fellow Muslims who are praying to Allah. As Muslims commit mass murder within Islam, the Islamic leaders around the world turn a blind eye.
