Why Muslims Greet Infidels With The Left Hand

Today’s lesson is a demonstration of the status of non-Muslims within the minds of the practitioners of Islam.  If, as an Infidel, you are surprised (or perhaps offended) by the gesture of a Muslim who greets you by extending his left hand (which is explained in the video), please bear in mind that the true Muslim is equally offended by your existence, because you and I as Infidels are considered to be uncleanKafir is the proper term.  And that is why he greets your extended right hand hand with his left.  His left is the dirty hand, in the most abject sense of the word.

Islam divides the world into two parts:  The Dar al Islam (the house of Islam) and the Dar al Harb (the house of war).  There’s really nothing between the two.  Either one is or is not a Muslim.  It follows, then, that one is either clean or dirty.

People who inhabit the House of War are not considered by Muslims to be clean.  Infidels are believed to be dirty, literally.  Andrew Bostom has written about the historical doctrine of najis, wherein Jews who lived in Muslim-conquered territories were not allowed to go outside their homes during rain storms.  The fear among the ruling Muslim class was that some of the filth which clung to the bodies or clothing of the Jews would be washed away by the falling rain – further, that some passing Muslim might come into contact with the flowing rain water and thereby be contaminated by the water-borne najis.

This concludes today’s lesson.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

    There is no such teaching as the fact that infidels should be greeted by the right hand. It is a wrong fact. Infact the quran says that you must treat your neighbour first, be him a muslim or not. (I’m sorry that I cannot cite the exact phrase.)
