Pakistan Diplomat to U.S.: "Lay Off Our Prophet" [The Truth? Pedophile and Serial Bigamist?]
CBS News ^ | September 22, 2012 | Pamela Falk

September 21 Pakistan Diplomat to U.S.: "Lay Off Our Prophet"

Pamela Falk. Pakistan Ambassador to the United Nations Abdullah Hussain Haroon tells CBS News' Pamela Falk that if the U.S. wants to stop the attacks against American embassies, to "lay off our prophet, just lay off our prophet [Mohammed]. Is that asking too much?"

On a deadly day of violent protests in Pakistan, when thousands rampaged in Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi and Peshawar, burned American flags. and condemned the anti-Muslim film, Pakistani U.N. Ambassador Abdullah Hussain Haroon told CBS News' Pamela Falk that if the U.S. wants to stop the attacks against American embassies, "just lay off our Prophet, just lay off our Prophet. Is that too much to ask?"

Friday was declared an official holiday, a "Day of Love for the Prophet" and although officials urged non-violence in protests, some analysts in Pakistan and around the world, criticized the government for a day of killing and mob action that may have been, by design or by accident, seen as government support for the anger.

In one of the largest protests of those that have taken place recently around the world, at least 19 people died and dozens of business were torched, particularly Western restaurants and businesses.

In an attempt to prevent cellphone-detonated bombs, the government of Pakistan -- the nation with one of the largest Muslim populations in the world -- blocked cellphone service in over a dozen cities, a act that has widespread effect in a nation with 120 million cellphone subscribers over anti-Muslim film

Despite tear gas and live ammunition fired by Pakistani police to quell the violence, and TV ads purchased by the U.S. Embassy in an attempt to distance the U.S. government from the film, anger was in the streets throughout Pakistan.

If the Muslim world is not ready for free speech or Youtube, then perhaps they should not have the Internet in their countries.

The truth about Mad Mo is, in Hillary’s words about the documentary of his life, “disgusting and reprehensible.” You’d think with all the blabbing about the Koran, the imams would share a short bio of their “prophet.”

The truth hurts.

Pedophile - Fair enough.

Serial Bigamist - Only if you apply the same standard to Abraham, Jacob, David, Solomon, etc.

What more can one expect from Allah, the Moon god, which in Sumerian means “SIN”.

They still worship the Kaaba, the black stone at Mecca....this was worshiped before Mohammad, it’s a pagan god.....pagan is as pagan does....Islam simply doesn’t want to hear about it.

We SHOULD be saying:

Lay off of our embassies or we'll vaporize one of your cities. Is that asking too much?

U.S. TO MUSLIMS: “Lay Off Our CHRISTIANS!”

...if MUSLIM COUNTRIES want to stop the coming attacks against Muslims “lay off our Christians, just lay off our Christians. Is that asking too much?”

In the first place, we cherish our right of Free Speech, specified in our founding documents and bled for by generations of Americans.

For those of us who call ourselves Christian, we are called to bear witness to the Truth of God. The Truth about Islam is that it is a misbegotten cult, born of a Seventh Century tribal ethos that has not advanced one iota into the modern age.

The Truth about Mohammed is that he was a bloodthirsty warlord, a megalomaniac, and a pedophile.

This American reserves the right to make fair comment on Islam, its founder, and its demented adherents! Western Civilization has been at war with them since the 7th Century and will continue to be until they are vanquished.



WE THE PEOPLE
OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA




"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. "





Our Founding Fathers secured this essential freedom against overwhelming odds through great adversity, securing it first with the blood of our Patriots shed in the War of the Revolution, then through the course of intense and extended debate, leading finally to the adoption of the Bill of Rights.

It is under attack now, not only by the media, not only by academia, but by the Executive Branch of the United States Government itself. The President and Department of Justice have abdicated their sworn duty to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. They have instead, with full knowledge of the enormity of their acts, systematically betrayed the American People in repeated transgressions and usurpations, thereby assuming the role of principal domestic enemy in what will be the defining Constitutional struggle of our times.

We are called at this crucial moment to bear Witness to the Truth of God, to uphold and to defend this vital, First Freedom and the Freedoms that derive from it. Without Freedom of Conscience, what substantive Freedom could we continue to enjoy?





Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

If you were a mayor in any city in the world, which would you rather host, a World Youth Day gathering of Catholic young people, or a "Day of Love for the Prophet?"

America will pay for a long time for his b/s. This is only the beginning.

The man has no idea of what America was, is and will be.

I can assure you, it will NOT be islamic, even if he brings on a civil war. A civil war? Will promote a whack of housekeeping.

Agreed.

Polygamy is not a sin against God, it is simply against the laws of the US, and am bound by God to respect the laws of the land I reside in.

The Apostle Paul limited Bishops to one wife, that they wouldn’t be distracted from their office in the church.

The Apostles considered themselves co-elders with the church and Paul was celibate. He would that all the disciples were celibate, but he suffered them to marry.

The one wife wasn’t a requirement, but rather a limit, but I repeat myself.

Well, I was thinking we could then make a video of the glass crater with some subtext and no sound...maybe a city limit sign at the edge for effect.

Then we could distribute it to the raghead slammers...maybe ask them to evaluate the video.

What is wrong with you muzzlems? Is Mo the best you could find? What a reject he was. You need to start all over again. Just pretend Mo never existed and you wanted to dream up a real prophet, not a criminal. Pretend you had a prophet who was a good holy man. Maybe you could come up with a real religion instead of an insane cult.

Kind of like basing a religion on Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, or any number of democrats. I won’t even mention obama. No one is THAT stupid.

So, Did you hear the one about the Cowboy, The Indian & the Muslim Extremist?

Three strangers awaiting their flights strike up a conversation in the airport passenger lounge in Bozeman, Montana. One is an American Indian passing through from Lame Deer. Another is a Cowboy on his way to Billings for a livestock show. And the third is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly arrived at Montana State University from the Middle East who is headed to a training conference in Detroit.

Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim who supports Osama Bin Laden’s Jihad, so the conversation falls into an uneasy lull. The cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table and tips his big sweat-stained hat forward over his face. The wind outside is blowing tumbleweeds around, and the old windsock is flapping; but still . . . no plane comes.

Finally, ! the American Indian clears his throat and softly, he speaks, “At one time here, my people were many, but sadly, now we are few.”

The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward, “Once my people were few,” he sneers, “and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?”

The Montana cowboy shifts his toothpick to one side of his mouth and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a drawl, “That’s ‘cause we ain’t played Cowboys and Muslims yet, . . . but I do believe it’s a-comin’.”

Genesis 2:24.... “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

That these Patriarchs and Kings went outside the Bible’s “singular” marital standard is certainly not the fault of the Bible.

There are many gods, and Allah is one of them, and Mohammad is his Pervert. Every since the two of them got together, they have oppressed mankind, and made the world miserable. As long as they are around, nothing is going to change.

Why? Is their prophet too weak to stand against scrutiny? Is their religion too fragile that it will fail if people criticize it? It is a diverse world, and if their religion is can’t handle anyone saying anything negative about it, they need to just quit.

They kill anyone who questions the “prophet” and anyone who converts from Islam to Christianity is a proper target for murder. Sharia Law in action. This is the most barbaric religion based on the deception of an itinerant and illiterate mass murderer, sexual predator, and child molester by having sex with a 6-year old and calling it “marriage.”

Their religion has taken on the characteristics of the one who created it. Terror, violence, brutality and mistreatment of women, girls, and anyone who does not practice their religion but has the misfortune of living in their midst. It is a religion based on fear and the enforcement of fear.

Honor Killings, where parents kill their daughters for adopting “western values” is justifiable homicide under Sharia Law. As residents of the US, these barbarians are using the US constitution to perpetrate their beliefs on all of west. Just ask the European countries. Western values are being mocked and we appear to take it on the chin. These bastards are aided and abetted by American politicians and interests groups.

Don’t see where in the Bible it states there is a higher standard for prophets than for patriarchs or kings.

Both David and Solomon are traditionally counted as being authors of significant parts of the Bible.

My point is that Mohammed’s polygamy was traditional to the middle east, particularly for kings, which he was. It was not at the time considered a moral failing.
