How to expose CAIR and other Islamic organizations in the West
I am an Arab Muslim and a Reformer of Islam (See: www.thamid.com).I believe that it is extremely important to ask CAIR and other Islamic organizations in the West to say their view loudly and in an UNAMBIGIOUS manner about the following points that are considered an Integral part of the current Islamic teaching:
1- Killing Muslims who convert from Islam to other religions (Redda Law which is part of Shariia System in Saudi Arabia)
2- declaring war on Non-Muslims to give them a choice between Islam, Jezya (Humiliating tax)- and Killing (this was the way to spread Islam and is approved till now in the current Islamic books)
3- Stoneing women for having "illigal" sex (i.e. outside marriage or the Islamic slavery system as practiced in Saudi Arabia till now)
4- Killing homosexuals (as described in the current Islamic books and practiced in Iran and other Islamic countries)
5- Beating women or wives to discipline them
6- Slavery (As practiced by Prophet Mohammed his followers in the history of Islam)
7- Enslaving female war prisoners and raping them (Ma Malakat Aimanikum) as justified in the traditional Islamic teaching
8- Accepting Dhimmi status o for Non-Muslims-the correct word in Arabic is "Zhimmi"- (this is a form of second class citizen who do not have the same rights as Muslims do) in an Islamic system
9- Is marrying and having sex with a 7-9 years old female child to follow the footsteps of Prophet Mohammed (as described in Hadith Sahih in Sahih Al-Bukhari) "Halal" (acceptable) or WRONG?
CAIR and all other Islamic Organizations in the west have to clearly publish their view about these points. Their view has to be unambiguous.If these Islamic organizations accept the above crimes or in other words rejects the basic tenants of humanity, then it is impossible to consider them a true partner in a process of mutual understanding and interfaith dialogue.How come the civilized world accept to deal with people who accept the above mentioned eight points.Failure to clearly denounce the above mentioned points by any organization would immediately expose it to the western people.Can we consider people and organizations who accept the above 9 points in their teaching as moderate organizations or shall we consider them a threat to any free society?Many of these "moderate" organizations like CAIR will never denounce the above 9 points in an unambiguous manner as the moment they do this they will loose the support of most Muslims communities in the West and the financial support from rich Muslims!I now invite CAIR to say their true opinion publically about the previously mentioned 9 points!
