New ‘Ask A Muslim’ Video Series Attempts To Present The Dark Nature Of Islam In A Positive Light

The Prophet Isaiah declares that Christ is the Prince of Peace (Isa. 9:6). The Prophet Micah declares Christ to be the source of peace (Mic. 5:5). The Apostle Paul even declares that Christ is Himself “our peace” (Eph. 2:14). And now today the “prophet” Mohammed and his followers declare Islam to be the “religion of peace”, when in truth it is nothing more than a blasphemous “Christian cult” teaching that Jesus was indeed born of the virgin Mary and was the Messiah on one hand, while denying the very power upon which all of mankind can be saved on the other…

2 Corinthians 11:13-15, “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.”

Matthew 24:5, “For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.”

By Mark Tapson, – “‘Ask A Muslim‘ is a new internet video series that ‘showcases the current face of Black Islam in America today.’ With its light, upbeat tone, its soundtrack of soulful grooves, and perpetually smiling faces gleaming with professionally whitened teeth, it’s designed to present an easygoing, non-threatening setting in which Americans can get the reassuring truth about the Religion of Peace.™ Unfortunately, you won’t find straight answers here. Nor will you find, at least thus far in the series, enough of the most pointed questions that Americans who are legitimately alarmed about Islam truly want addressed. What you will find is a lot of obfuscation and condescension.

Produced by the Black Public Media Network, two episodes of the series have been released so far (the first is just under seven minutes, the second just under nine). It uses man-on-the-street-style questions directed to a recurring handful of black Muslim artists, writers, imams, and ‘cultural observers.’ Random (presumably) individuals are filmed asking their questions with the world-famous LOVE sculpture in Philadelphia prominently displayed over the questioner’s shoulder.

Episode one eases viewers into the series with superficial questions about Muslim ‘otherness’ like, ‘Why do Muslim people have gigantic, bushy beards?’ and ‘Why do Muslim women cover themselves to varying degrees, even their faces?’ To the latter question, Dr. Su’ad Abdul Khabeer, an assistant professor of Anthropology and African American Studies at Purdue, replies that Muslim dress for women is ‘about modesty, but it doesn’t prevent you from sort of expressing yourself personally or feeling beautiful.’ Except in regions oppressed by sharia, where women express themselves and their physical beauty at risk of their lives. ‘Muslim women just wear the clothes that they wanna wear!’ exclaims comedian Omar Regan. Try telling that to the morality police in Iran, who drag women off to jail for sporting western haircuts or jeans, or to the enforcers of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice in Saudi Arabia. For that matter, try telling it to the victims of honor killings in America who simply wanted to be like their non-Muslim friends.

‘What do real Muslims think about fake Muslims?’ one young man asks in episode two. Huh? You get a shot at asking a ‘real Muslim’ for the truth about Islam and that’s your question? In any case, the respondents Read more…

By Shafique Khokhar – “Faisalabad (AsiaNews) – A brutal murder, of a shadowy nature, has shaken the Christian community in Pakistan already marked by the experience of a disabled girl imprisoned for blasphemy in Islamabad, 11-year-old Rimsha Masih… On 21 August the police in Faisalabad found the horribly mutilated body of Suneel Masih in an isolated area of ​​the city. They boy a Christian orphan from the city had disappeared two days earlier. Still shocked by the ferocity of the killers a police officer confided on the condition of anonymity to AsiaNews: ‘It’s the first time – said the inspector – that I have ever seen such a murder ‘. The body was found with the ears, nose, tongue and limbs torn from the body, the belly ripped open and internal organs (including the liver and kidneys) taken, perhaps to be sold on the black market. The killers then poured acid on his face, perhaps to make him unrecognizable.

But investigators have yet to open an investigation into the terrible murder of the 14 year old orphan Christian, whose funeral took place yesterday in the presence of minority leader and local politicians. A protest march was held on the streets of Faisalabad, during which people repeatedly demanded ‘justice’ for the 14 year old Suneel Masih (pictured). Tomorrow an autopsy will be held on the remains of the boy, to clarify whether there was also sexual violence before death.

According to the story of some witnesses informed of the facts, on August 19 last Suneel – a 5th class student – went to a shop in Liberty Market to buy a shirt. That night, the boy did not return home and the family raised the alarm. A desperate search began, which proved to be useless and his disappearance was reported to police. Two days later, on 21, police found the horribly mutilated corpse of the boy in an isolated industrial area.

The Christian community is in shock and demanding justice, perhaps in vain because so far the police have not even opened a formal investigation.” Read more.
