Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood Presidential Candidate: There is No Freedom in Islam


Islamists will often say one thing in English (all too often embraced by Western leftists), while public statements in Arabic tell a completely different story (which leftists conveniently ignore). Take, for instance, the latest statement by Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate, Hazem Saleh Abu Ismail, yet another poster child for the Earl of Irony. Want freedom? Want justice? Think twice. No word on whether or not the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood will change its name from the “Freedom and Justice Party” to “Slavery and Inequity”, but I can only surmise that the farcical misnomer will remain …

Qur’an Sura 3:85, “And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers [because he is in hell].”

By AMRUTHA GAYATHRI – “Hazem Saleh Abu Ismail, Egypt’s presidential candidate and a vocal supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, has said that there is no room for personal freedom in Islam.

In a recent television interview translated and reported by Jihad Watch, Ismail said that being a Muslim is like being a member of the military, where one has to go by a dictatorial code of conduct.

‘If you claim that Allah considers it your personal freedom, show me your reference? Nobody has ever said that – except for people have no understanding of Sharia,’ Ismail said.

‘If you join (military), then you are obliged to wear their uniform, to attend their classes, to attend the training with them and to obey their leader,’ Ismail said, comparing military rules to Islamic Sharia.” Read more.
