Clarion Project's Muslim "Deformer" Shireen Qudosi Lies About Islam To StandWithUs Jewish Donors
Falsely Claims There Are "Competing Versions Of Islam" - Is Refuted By Islam Expert Stephen M. Kirby
MIM: Excerpt from "Stand With Us Extols Muslim Reformer, Christian Director".
"Qudosi was the featured speaker at a meeting of major contributors to StandWithUs, the organization that counters anti-Israel propaganda and engages in pro-Israel advocacy at schools and campuses from middle school to university. She spoke in behalf of the Clarion Project, a non-profit organization that seeks to counter Islamic extremists by emphasizing Islam's traditions of peace rather than of war.
There have always been competing versions of Islam, she said. While this dichotomy is not clear cut, those who favor the warlike teachings that can be found in the Hadith—a commentary on the Koran written many years later – engage in Jew hatred. Other Muslims, who dismiss the Hadith as the writings of ordinary and fallible men, argue that based on the Koran, the true teaching of Islam is to seek peace among the peoples of the world."
(Shireen Qudosi is Clarion Project's National Correspondent.)
MIM: Islam expert Stephen M. Kirby responds to Shireen Qudosi's false claims of "competing versions of the Koran" with the truth about the violence unequivocally mandated and sanctioned in and by the Koran.
Either Ms. Qudosi or Mr. Harrison is confused in their terminology. Ms. Qudosi is reported as having mentioned "the warlike teachings that can be found in the Hadith – a commentary on the Koran…" The Koran commentaries are actually called "tafsirs"; the hadiths are reports about the teachings and example of Muhammad from those who heard those teachings or saw that example. There are six authoritative hadith collections, consisting altogether of thousands of hadiths. Here are two hadiths from the most authoritative of these six collections:
"Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah's Messenger said, ‘I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people till they say La ilaha illallah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and whoever said La ilaha illallah, he saved his life and property from me except for Islamic law, and his accounts will be with Allah (either to punish him or to forgive him).'"
Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol. 4, Book 56, No. 2946, p. 126
"Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah's Messenger said, ‘The Hour will not be established until you fight against the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say, ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.'"
Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol. 4, Book 56, No. 2926, p. 113
Ms. Qudosi also mentioned "competing versions of Islam." Islam is based on two pillars: the commands of Allah found in the Koran, and the teachings and example of Muhammad. If there is a "competing" version, that version is simply ignoring one of both of those pillars.
MIM: Qudosi practices taqiyya constantly. In a screed published by the far left (ex Jewish) Forward she declared that the Hamas front group the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) "is of value to the Muslim community".
MIM: It should be noted that Temple Emanu-El of New York is a reform/deform Jewish institution with a liberal bent which does not adhere to orthodox Jewish law. Their "rabbis" are not considered as such according to Jewish law.
MIM: Qudosi has posted videos by the virulently anti semitic conspiracy theorist David Icke.
MIM Update 1/15/19: Qudosi has since deleted her two David Icke tweets due to bad publicity and realized it was not a good idea to post videos of anti semitic conspiracy theorists considering she "works" for at least one Jewish lead organisation, the Clarion Project.
It would be interesting to know whether she feigns ingnorance, blames inbreeding, or inhaling for her stupidity which is manifestly on display with her "Toke for Tolerance" pseudo intellectual New Age initiative aptly co sponsored by Lunacy Now!
"Lunacy Now stands for truth, justice and the American way. That's why we're teaming up with top interfaith activist Shireen Qudosi to launch the world's premier cannabis based interfaith festival."
What is Toke for Tolerance?
"Toke for Tolerance brings people together to address the complex political, philosophical and religious issues which divide communities. We will use cannabis as a tool to facilitate peer-to-peer peace building by stripping down our inhibitions."
What are We Going to Do?
"Toke is primarily about bridging the divide between the Muslim and Jewish community, which has been under strain in recent years. This will involve, among other things, discussing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
But it's also about racism, white supremacy, capitalism and other issues that divide communities. It's open to everyone regardless of background. Toke believes the issues which face us are holistic rather than specific. We therefore can't adequately address any given issue unless we facilitate conversations about related issues. This includes getting down to the core human traits that produce conflict – in-group/out-group dynamics, linguistic differences causing misunderstandings, hierarchies of value and the aggression impulse.
We will read and discuss extracts from a wide cross-section of thinkers to uncover the root issues underlying our divisions. Such thinkers include: the chassidic masters the Alter Rebbe and Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, Enlightenment thinkers John Locke, and Thomas Paine, Muslim golden age philosophers Al-Ghazzali, Averros and Ibn Khaldun, along with more contemporary figures like Abdullahi Ahmed an-Naim, Amina Wadud, Hannah Arendt, Edward Said, James Baldwin, Emma Goldman, Hamza Yusuf and Jordan Peterson.
We are going to host open listening sessions where we hear each others truth without judgement and share our own.
And obviously we're going to hit back a lot of bong rips."
