Australia: ‘Savior Of Humanity’ Misinfomercials Using Fake Quotes From Fictitious Book

Claiming something real that is actually fake? Where have I heard that before? Here’s an update on this story out of Australia. It appears that Islam’s other “Savior of Humanity” needs to bolster the claim by quoting imaginary quotes from yet another fabrication

By Rachel Baxendale, The Australian – “ANTI ‘Islamophobia’ advertisements due to screen on major free-to-air channels from today rely on a fabricated quote from Irish playwright and avowed atheist George Bernard Shaw, from a book that does not exist, according to the International Shaw Society.The 30-second ads have been funded by the Sydney-based Mypeace organisation, which says it hopes to ‘build bridges’ between Muslims and other Australians.

Animated with voiceovers and with quotations displayed on the screen, they feature major historical figures including Mahatma Gandhi and Shaw praising the prophet Mohammed.

The advertisements quote Shaw proclaiming the prophet Mohammed was ‘the saviour of humanity’ in a book he is supposed to have written entitled The Genuine Islam.

But International Shaw Society treasurer Richard F Dietrich said he had compiled a complete list of Shaw’s works, which did not include the book.

‘I think The Genuine Islam is bogus,’ he said. In his writings, Shaw described the religion in a 1933 letter to Rev Ensor Walters as ‘ferociously intolerant’.

‘Mahomet rose up at the risk of his life and insulted the stones (that the Arabs worshipped) shockingly, declaring that there is only one God, Allah, the glorious and the great . . . And there was to be no nonsense about toleration,’ Shaw wrote.

‘You accepted Allah or you had your throat cut by someone who did accept him, and who went to Paradise for having sent you to Hell.’

The suggestion that Shaw may have written a book entitled The Genuine Islam has its origins in an interview between Shaw and Muslim propagandist Maulana Mohammed Abdul Aleem Siddiqui published in a Muslim periodical in January 1936.

The interview took place in Mombasa, Kenya, some time between April 10 and 20, 1935, and copies of the periodical remain.

It contains a quotation which describes Mohammed as Read more…

UK: Teacher Refused To Give Boy, 10, Water During Hottest Day Of The Year To Avoid Offending Muslim Pupils Observing Ramadan

A public school teacher bowing down to “Allah” in an effort to not offend the perpetually offended should be suspended. If it was the other way around, would a Muslim teacher in a predominantly Muslim country have cared if a Christian student may have thought they were being treated “unfairly”? …

Daily Mail – “An angry mother has accused a primary school of denying her child water on one of the hottest days of the year for fear of upsetting pupils observing Ramadan.

Kora Blagden, 32, claimed a teacher at her son Luke’s school refused to let the 10-year old drink from his water bottle because it was unfair to fasting classmates.

Many pupils at Charles Dickens Primary School, Portsmouth, Hampshire, are fasting during Ramadan, which means they refrain from taking food or water between sunrise and sunset for around 30 days, depending on the moon.

Mother-of-four Kora said: ‘Just before bedtime me and my sons Luke, ten, and Alfie, eight, were talking about Ramadan as we had seen it on the news.

‘Luke said to me he was told he wasn’t allowed to drink in class by his teacher.

‘The reason being, a child who is fasting had a headache and the teacher said it would be unfair if the other children drank in front of the pupil.

‘They normally have their bottles on their table but they were kept in a tray by the teacher.

‘He went along with it but he was thirsty and didn’t want to offend the other children.

‘Alfie said he was allowed to drink in the morning but not in the afternoon.

‘Luke was dehydrated when he got home and drunk three glasses of water straight away.’

The teacher made the ruling on Thursday when temperatures soared to 28C.” Read more.
