Top Egyptian Cleric Calls for Global Ban on Islam Attacks

Egypt's top Muslim cleric on Saturday called for an international ban on all forms of attacks against Islam, after a controversial film allegedly triggered the recent wave of violent protests that have erupted in the Middle East and North Africa.

Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyeb, grand imam of Cairo's Al-Azhar, the highest seat of Sunni Muslim learning, stressed "the need for an international resolution (banning) any attack on Muslim religious symbols," in a statement addressed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and published by official MENA news agency.

The resolution should "criminalize attacks on Islamic symbols and on those of other religions, after the violence against those who provoked challenges to world peace and international security," Tayyeb said.

Let me get this straight: US ambassadors provoked the attacks against them because a film was made in America? Grrr. But wait. There's more!

"The imam added that it was the UN's responsibility to "protect world peace from any threat or aggression," so that "these dangerous events cannot recur."

He called on "Egyptians in these trying times (to show) wisdom and restraint.""

I just thought of a new thing Sheikh el-Tayyeb can do with a minaret.

If you ban attacks on Christianity, you have to ban the Koran and Islam.

[”criminalize attacks on Islamic symbols and on those of other religions”]

Trying to define attacks on religion would be like trying to decide how much disagreement with the president constitutes racism.

Just so I have this straight, he is saying that we should ban [movies about mohammed] because of violence against those who provoked challenges to world peace and international security. Let me think about that... No.

Do you suppose he really said “nuts”? I can think of a less printable synonym that seems more likely

Eleutheria, Thank you for posting this interesting article.

January 4, 2011 - Sheik of Al-Azhar Ahmad Al-Tayyeb: “The Pope Is Not Bothered When Millions of Muslims Are Killed”

Following are excerpts from an interview with the Sheik of Al-Azhar Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, which aired on Dream 2 TV on January 4, 2011:

Sheik Ahmad Al-Tayyeb: The division of the Arab world is a goal set [by foreigners]. This wretched scheme has begun to be implemented. Look at what is happening in Iraq, for example, and how they want to divide it into three or four countries. For the sake of this plan...

Interviewer: Sudan as well...

Sheik Ahmad Al-Tayyeb: That was my next point. [...]

The partitioning of Iraq has begun, and so has the partitioning of Sudan, and in two or three days, we will see what will become of it. There are similar efforts in Yemen. Look what things have come to in Egypt. They want Egypt to disintegrate as well. I have recently read that the global world order – or Israel – does not want [Israel] to be a tiny entity, or a minority, in the midst of large entitles in the Arab world. They want there to be only minorities, so that Israel can live peacefully. These things, which I have read, were written by non-Muslims. These things were written by Copts and other Christians. It is well known that if Egypt disintegrates, it will become easy to disintegrate the rest of the Arab world. [...]

The subsequent step will be the disintegration of the Muslims.

Interviewer: How?

Sheik Ahmad Al-Tayyeb: By dividing the Muslims, into Shiites and Sunnis, for example. They have already begun to prepare the Shiite infrastructure. After a while, they will start attacking a mosque here and a mosque there, just like you have seen in...

Interviewer: In Iraq.

Sheik Ahmad Al-Tayyeb: Not in Iraq, in Alexandria.

Interviewer: Ah, I mean the Iraqi scenario...

Sheik Ahmad Al-Tayyeb: The Iraqi scenario will continue. This is the beginning of the implementation of the Iraqi scenario in Egypt. [...]

I do not believe in conspiracy theories. I really don’t. But believe me, there are dark, high-ranking, and powerful hands behind this, because it is inconceivable that the Islamic nation would have reached such a degree of naïveté and stupidity. Impossible! [...]

I said that the Pope’s statement was intervention in Egypt’s domestic affairs. We have read similar statements by the Pope many times in the past... I am trying to choose my words carefully. The Pope is not bothered when millions of Muslims are killed. In Iraq, for example, he was not bothered, and did not call upon the US or the world to intervene immediately, in order to save Muslim blood, even though this should be his mission.

If he is, indeed, a man of religion, a pope, he must prevent the shedding of anybody’s blood. When it had to do with Christian blood – albeit a small number of casualties – the Pope said that Christians are being persecuted in the East, and that they must be protected, and so on. In addition, when the Pope visited Israel, he did not visit Palestine, and did not talk about the blood being shed every day in Palestine. [...]

One has to watch these guys saying the things they do. They’re so firm, knowledgeable, and convincing one could almost believe them. He also wears a Salifist Santa Cap like the blind sheik.

The Pope, of course, is always going on about peace over there etc:

They keep the majority poor and ignorant in order for exploitation and control purposes.

What’s the matter Islam, can’t take the heat? Don’t care for the truth? Got a glass jaw? Insecure in your beliefs? Anytime someone wants artificial protections like this, it is a definite sign of weakness.

Why not try respecting minorities, so that they don’t want to separate. Had the Ottomans not tried to destroy the Jewish Yishuv, we wouldn’t have helped the British disassemble their murderous, oppressive empire. But instead you try annihilating the minorities so there’s nobody to separate, just like the Ottomans did to the Armenians and Greeks. But you found me out, Sheiky-weeky (I can call you Sheiky-weeky, can’t I?) I do want recognition for Christian and other minorities in the Middle East. They are our natural allies, because “the enemy of my enemy” is what, class? That, btw, also includes oppressed Muslim minorities such as Kurds and Baluchis.

Fortunately here in the US, we have this little thing called the 1st Amendment. The US government cannot pass laws that support any religion. And the US government cannot pass any laws restricting free speech. Of course, that wont stop Obama and the MSM retards, from trying to do just that. As others have noted, through executive orders.

I remember when I was 14, walking down the hall of Norton Union at the University of Buffalo campus, somebody shouted behind me “Hey, Jooo!” and shook a yarmulke suggestively in front of his genitalia at me. I simply turned my back to him, kept my head up and kept on walking. But now, if we folly (sic) Sheiky-weeky’s advice, I can call the UN on hooligans like him for desecrating a religious symbol. I wonder how state, local and federal police all over the world will like this new role for the UN. I wonder how they can even fill it?

An Islamic state...Copts worried...
http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/al-azhar-salafi-leaders-reach-agreement-sharia

Not only are copts worried but shiite and regular sunni - we’re talking the Muslim Brotherhood - Salafi/Wahabbi who have salafi terrorists in the field....not suspecting them any of them are linked or anything like that.../s

I also like the Kurds today but they were out front during the Armenian Genocide as they were promised their own land etc., that promise was never to happen. The Turks today deny it but the Kurds have admitted and apologized...big difference in the basic character.

Stop the attacks on Copts and Christians in Sudan and maybe there is a basis for talks.

Otherwise, think what an air burst, 5 megaton nuke will do for your suntan.

Islam always has been and always will be an empire, it is pre-fudal. There is no partitioning, it is just the normal shifting of power witin Islamic feudal lords.

From Wiki - certainly “NUTS” was in the official reply to the Germans. But contemporaneous accounts seem to say that yes he did say that and no he did not tend to use a lot of profanity. But I think what is indisputable is that that’s what went into the official reply.


On December 22, 1944, through a party consisting of a major, a lieutenant, and two enlisted men under a flag of truce that entered the American lines southeast of Bastogne (occupied by Company F, 2nd Battalion, 327th Glider Infantry), General von Lüttwitz sent the following ultimatum to Gen. McAuliffe:

To the U.S.A. Commander of the encircled town of Bastogne.

The fortune of war is changing. This time the U.S.A. forces in and near Bastogne have been encircled by strong German armored units. More German armored units have crossed the river Our near Ortheuville, have taken Marche and reached St. Hubert by passing through Hompre-Sibret-Tillet. Libramont is in German hands.

There is only one possibility to save the encircled U.S.A. troops from total annihilation: that is the honorable surrender of the encircled town. In order to think it over a term of two hours will be granted beginning with the presentation of this note.
If this proposal should be rejected one German Artillery Corps and six heavy A. A. Battalions are ready to annihilate the U.S.A. troops in and near Bastogne. The order for firing will be given immediately after this two hours term.

All the serious civilian losses caused by this artillery fire would not correspond with the well-known American humanity.

The German Commander.

According to various accounts from those present, when McAuliffe was told of the German demand for surrender he said “nuts”. At a loss for an official reply, Lt. Col. Harry Kinnard suggested that his first remark summed up the situation well, which was agreed to by the others. The official reply was typed and delivered by Colonel Joseph Harper, commanding the 327th Glider Infantry, to the German delegation. It was as follows:
To the German Commander.

NUTS!

The American Commander
Suffice it to say, the Germans were perplexed at the short reply. Harper offered an explanation of the meaning of the word to the Germans, telling them that in “plain English” it meant “Go to hell.”[3] The word choice came directly from McAuliffe and was typical for him. Vincent Vicari, his personal aide at the time, recalled that “General Mac was the only general I ever knew who did not use profane language. ‘Nuts’ was part of his normal vocabulary.”[4]

The threat of artillery fire did not materialize, although several infantry and tank assaults were directed at the positions of the 327th Glider Infantry. In addition, the German Luftwaffe entered the attacks on the town, bombing it nightly. The 101st was able to hold off the Germans until the 4th Armored Division arrived on December 26 to provide reinforcement.

Neither Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyeb nor Ban Ki-moon have any influence or authority beyond the cesspools in which they live.

They can just kiss my ascot.

How this lunatic culture can attract worldwide attention no matter how asinine and irrelevant the individual insignificant members are... I will never understand.
