“I want to be perfectly clear about this: training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a tendency towards violence are wrong, they are offensive, and they are contrary to everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice stands for,” Holton said. “They will not be tolerated.”
The foregoing abjectly vacuous words were offered by former U.S. Attorney Dwight Holton, in support of Attorney General Eric Holder’s intention to eliminate any and all law enforcement training which may cast Islam in a negative light. Diana West responded to, and refuted, the comments today on her website.
In evidentiary support of Diana’s position, may I offer the following:
O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.
“Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”
“I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”
“They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”
“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
“Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”
“[Mohammed] declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind…The precept of the Quran is, perpetual war against all who deny that [Mohammed] is the Prophet of God.
The vanquished [dhimmi] may purchase their lives by the payment of tribute.”
John Quincy Adams
I could go on with much, much more. But, you’d run out of time, I assure you. As Diana said so clearly, it is more than obvious that Mr. Holton and Mr. Holder are devoid of any doctrinal Islamic knowledge.
