Islam's Teachings Prohibit Terrorism, Says Imam (Media Campaign Begins in Rome)
Zenit News Agency ^ | September 22, 2005

Posted on 09/22/2005 5:03:12 PM PDT by NYer

ROME, SEPT. 22, 2005 (Zenit.org).- The imam of Rome's Grand Mosque condemned terrorism in the name of Islam, stating that "Islam is the religion of mutual knowledge and peace," not of "mutual hostility and clash."

Sheik Mahmud Hammad Sheweita made this statement at a press conference in Rome's Foreign Press Room, to present the Media Campaign Against World Suicide Terrorism, led by Jack Shepard, founder of the People for Peace Group.

The imam reminded his audience that suicide and murder are illicit.

"It is very clear that the killing of innocent people and of peaceful people have been declared illicit by Allah," he said Wednesday.

Also present at the press conference was Abdella Redouane, secretary-general of the Islamic Cultural Center of Italy who, when asked about Benedict XVI, said: "It is a privilege for us to be in Rome so close to the Vatican. Our relations are very good. We were at the Pope's funeral and we have already met in private with Benedict XVI, who, although he is different from John Paul II, follows a line of continuity in relation to Muslims."

Moreover, Redouane was pleased that Benedict XVI wanted to meet with Muslims in Cologne, Germany, and said that he hoped that, after her audience with the Pope, journalist Oriana Fallaci will be "less venomous against Muslims, and also against the Vatican."

For his part, Jack Shepard, promoter of the campaign against suicide terrorism, recalled that Rome is a place of meeting and dialogue between religions. "If all the world were like Rome," he said, "we would not be talking about such topics."

Islam means submission. Every dhimmi knows that.

I'm not all that concerned with what Mohammedism does or does not permit, I just care about what the adherents of this death cult actually do.

'"It is very clear that the killing of innocent people and of peaceful people have been declared illicit by Allah," he said Wednesday.'

And what he forgot to say is that only muslims are considered innocents according to islam, the rest of us are all guilty.

I agree. If they'd knock off trying to kill us all, they could stay in the 7th century, as far as I'm concerned. We can work on the rest with a bit of evangelization, which unfortunately we stopped doing 40 years ago. Time to revive it.

The two statements are not inconsistant to a Muslim, since those who oppose Islam are not innocent or peaceful. I can prove anything I want, if I'm allowed to make up my own definitions for all my terms.

Something like how the Communists were for "peace". In Marxism, peace is defined as that state which occurs after complete Communist victory

Ask Imam:

It is only permissible for a person to lie for good causes, for example, to avoid oppression or to reconcile between two people or to lie to an enemy of Islam in order to trick him. It is also permissible to lie in a joking manner wherein the opposite person is not being deceived and misled, or in order to encourage a person, like one’s wife and children. (Raddul Muhtaar pg.303)

The imam reminded his audience that suicide and murder are illicit.

And also a Muslim who dies when he detonates the bomb strapped to his body is neither a suicide nor a murderer if he dies in the process of killing those who oppose Islam.

This cleric needs to go and tell the Muslims all over the world for they do not know this.

Illicit? Illicit? Suicide is Illicit? I can think of no greater display of disdain for Gods creation than suicide. With the exception of suicide in order to kill as many others as possible.

You know, in this country it is acceptable to plead the 5th (omission of facts) in order to avoid incriminating yourself.
In Islam it is acceptable to LIE in order to avoid incriminating the Prophet.

Yeah, like "When we're pulling the wool over the eyes of the dumb infidel unbelievers who aren't smart enough to figure out that we will not stop until we rule the world", but unless it's for this cause, then it's not OK to lie.

I quote: "Strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of allah... Kill them wherever you find them until idolatry is no more and allah's religion reigns supreme."

What part of that do the soft-peddlers not understand (or want US to understand)?

I sometimes wonder why, on one hand, America is accused of infusing her culture everywhere against all wishes and on the other hand we can't weem to win the PR war against a bunch of stinking toothless tenth century weirdos who promise nothing but burquas and bombs. I mean for all the contempt the Hollywood left (deservedly) gets the one thing it CAN do is sell an image....

Hard to believe any "religion" which advocates LYING to unbelievers in order to achieve world conquest.

Islam has only three rules. Believe like us or Submit to our supreme rule or you die. PERIOD.

Islam is more a desert tribe government system than any serious religion.

You can't compete with the utter anti-american global dominance of CNN. As long as CNN has a presence there is NOTHING the USA can do positive.

A wonderful sentiment, and good to hear.

Unfortunately, in most of the world "moderate" Muslims have about as much say as "moderate" Germans did in 1944.

The best thing we can do for Muslims (and ourselves) is to kill off the terrorists- all two million of them.

Someone needs to contact Zogby and CAIR and have them demand an apology from this errant imam on threat of his immediate dismissal. Hey, it works in the U.S.

I suspect it's really all about jealousy. When you stop and think that the crummiest toilet at a roadside rest area anywhere in the U.S. is better that 99.9% of the rag heads have in their homes..... well, you get my drift.

Muslim women defeated morally confused Western women after 40 years of radical feminist. Most Western women embrace male homosexually as normal and abortion as birth control after receiving pleasure from many lovers.

Your only as strong as your weakest link and Western women morally have been the weakest link supporting the feminization of men.

With less western children being born western government are importing 3rd world people to expand its population and economic growth.

What a diversified politically correct mess.
