Islam is Political

Islam is Political
Ask Rebecca Bynum

Rebecca Bynum has written a book entitled “Allah is Dead: Why Islam is Not a Religion”. Bynum is also the editor of the New English Review (NER). The NER has a review of Bynum’s book, but guess what? The NER is a victim of a cyber-attack. I have no doubts the cyber-attack was perpetrated by Muslims that are disenchanted with Free Speech that exposes the political nature of Islam. I believe that is the essential theme of “Allah is Dead”. Which is to say Islam has the trappings of a religion but is practiced with political ideological fervor to achieve political results in laws and culture.
I am unsure if there is any legal protection for the NER because I am unsure how enforceable Obama has made U.N. Resolution 16/18 in America in which the First Amendment should trump U.N. international law. If Obama enforces UN Res. 16/18 unconstitutionally then Rebecca Bynum could potentially be charged with hate-speech crimes for – cough – defaming Islam with a title like “Allah is Dead”.
So Bynum could potentially criminal charges under international law even though the hate-crime was perpetrated against Bynum and NER with a cyber-attack.
Here is an excerpt from the Gates of Vienna on the cyber-attack against NER:
New English Review Taken Down by DDOS
As most readers already know, the New English Review was brought down by a Directed Denial of Service attack (DDOS) during the night. The attack may or may not have been connected with the AFDI rally against sharia, which featured New English Review writers among its speakers.
Rebecca Bynum, the editor of NER, just sent us this brief note:
For those of you who don’t know yet, after I gave my short speech in Manchester TN last night, New English Review was cyber-attacked and remains down. The attack took out the entire network of sites hosted by ICG Link. They are now moving us to our own private server and will try to get us back up and running as soon as possible. Here is Jerry Gordon’s write-up of the event and my remarks at the AFDI protest on WatchDog Wire, which was very heartening.
Some excerpts from the story at WatchDog Wire:
Our NER colleague Rebecca Bynum drove down yesterday evening from Nashville to speak at an AFDI protest rally with Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller outside the Manchester — Coffee County Conference Center. The protest rally was scheduled for 5:30 p.m. When she arrived at 5:00 p.m. 150 people were already present, some with posters that read, “Just say no! to Islam” and even a booth selling “Sharia for Non —Muslims”. By the time the program started at 6:30 p.m., the hall was filled to overflowing with an estimated 800 inside according to the local Police Chief. So the Fire Marshall ordered the hall closed.
While the audience was disruptive, Bynum told me they were prepared and knowledgeable about Islamic doctrine. One source told of military that came down from Fort Campbell, Kentucky especially to attend this event. Members of the contingent commented to one audience member, “We fought this in the sandbox against Sharia, and we came home to find that it is happening here and now.” Many in the audience were veterans and of a similar cast of mind.
US Attorney Killian and FBI Special Agent Moore told the audience that if you defame Islam and engage in hate speech towards Muslims that you will be prosecuted to the fullest. Killian gave a power point presentation on what constituted hate speech under US law. He read off a list of White Supremacist and extremist groups probably provided by the Southern Poverty Law Center as exemplars of who the government was on the lookout for. FBI Special Agent Moore told the audience they were endeavoring to protect Muslim children from hate. At one point he noted that after 9/11 the FBI even hired Muslims as translators to which someone in the audience cried out, “yeah, but you didn’t hire Jews!” Ms. Sabina Mohyuddin, the AMACTN organizer of this event actually told the booing crowd to “shut up and listen to me!” One audience member commented in an email “that was like throwing oil on the fire”.
Daring to enforce OIC blasphemy codes under the guise of prosecuting hate speech. Make no bones about it. The heartland of America was outraged last night in Manchester, Tennessee.
Watch this Nashville Channel 4 WSMV TV video of the protest at the AMACTN event in Manchester, TN.
As you can see from the above report, the FBI and the Department of Justice are already attempting to implement the sharia blasphemy laws laid out by OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, as discussed in an earlier post.
The federal fox is not only guarding the American henhouse: he is heating up Read the Rest – very good info!
The New English Review is an awesome expose Islam website. I pray the powers that be get it up running again soon. In the meantime here is a 2011 review of “Allah is Dead”. Here is more about a rally in Manchester TN exposing Stealth Jihad in which you can read the text of Rebecca Bynum’s speech. Below is a cross post from a Tea Party Nation social site posted by Jack E. Kemp in which selected excerpts from Rebecca Bynum are posted.

Rebecca Bynum says Islam is not a religion but a hybrid

I just began reading Rebecca Bynum's book "Allah is Dead: Why Islam is not a religion." I urge you all to read the book, along with myself. The Introduction alone is a brilliant argument worthy of a great article, where it states:


...In this book, I take a highly focused look at Islam and whether or not it should rightly be classified or described as a religion, let alone an "Abrahamic religion" or one of the "world's great religions" as it has been presented.

There is no question, of course, that Muslims themselves believe Islam is a religion. And there is equally no question that Islam harnesses the religious impulse. But it can be argued that communism and Nazism likewise harnessed the religious impulse and that millions of people believed in those ideologies with full religious fervor and devotion. The fact of faith alone does not confer the status of religion on an ideology.

Furthermore, when Islam is analyzed philosophically it reveals itself to be closer to ideologies such as material determinism, nihilism, and even social Darwinism than it is to either Christianity or Judaism...

...The Constitution protects freedom of religion within certain bounds, but to date there had been no Constitutional definition of what actually constitutes a religion in a Judeo-Christian context and America has limited religious practices in the past.

An important precedent was set when Utah was threatened with invasion and federal occupation unless the Mormons living there changed their religious practice of polygamy. Because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints had a living prophet who could alter the religious tenets of the Church, essentially assigning polygamy to the afterlife, this change was made possible and Utah entered the Union after polygamy was officially banned in the territory. The Mormon Church now has protection under the religious liberty clause, but it did not while the church sanctioned and its members practiced polygamy...

...Polygamy is not marriage and should never be allowed protection under the idea of freedom of religion. There is little chance, however, that Islam will be changed to allow it to fit in with normal Western customs the way Mormonism was changed. A brochure distributed by the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, extols the supremacy of polygamy throughout, offering it as a superior lifestyle choice, but nowhere does it even mention that polygamy is illegal in America. It openly advocates breaking the law...

Thee (sic) is, however, a current of modern thought seeking to elevate a laudable personal virtue, that of tolerance, over the greater principle of justice. Is it just to tolerate polygamy in the name of religious freedom? The Supreme Court unanimously ruled in 1878, Reynolds v. United States, it is not. Is it just to tolerate the unequal right to inheritance for women? Is it just to tolerate forced marriage? Is it just to tolerate antisemitism? Is it just to tolerate the preaching of hatred toward non-Muslims? Is it just to tolerate the teaching that Muslims are superior to non-Muslims and that men are superior to women? Is it just to tolerate a parallel legal system based on inequality? There are things that our society cannot tolerate and expect to survive. Justice must take its rightful place above tolerance.
