Australian Mosque Posts Facebook ‘Fatwa’ on Christmas…Then Takes It Down
The Blaze ^ | 12/25/12 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 12/25/2012 7:02:35 PM PST by Nachum

The largest mosque in Australia posted a Facebook “fatwa” against Christmas — warning followers that it’s a “sin” even to wish people a Merry Christmas — before taking it down, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The ruling, posted Saturday by the Lakemba Mosque in Sydney, said the “disbelievers are trying to draw Muslims away from the straight path” and that “a Muslim is neither allowed to celebrate the Christmas Day nor is he allowed to congratulate [Christians].” It went up following a sermon from the mosque’s head imam against participating in any Christmas-related activities.

On wishing people a Merry Christmas, the fatwa stated that a “Muslim who says this does not become a disbeliever himself, he at least commits a sin as this is the same as congratulating him for his belief in the trinity, which is a greater sin and much more disliked by Almighty Allaah than congratulating him for drinking alcohol or killing a soul or committing fornication or adultery.”

Filthy religion, based on Satan’s lies.

Good news, although muslims are not allowed to celebrate Christmas or wish anyone a merry Christmas, muslims are encouraged to eat $hit and die.

Enough of this stuff. We have enough evidence of what they are teaching. Time for this religion to be banned outside of wherever it originated. I don't care for Christmas, but am not going to tolerate this kind of teaching. I am completely opposed to Islam, but have posted before that I would give them the opportunity to sell their assets and leave the country.

However through their teachings, they believe in just dispossessing whomever disagrees with them and then killing them and they teach that. The can't come here anymore and any government allowing them to do so and not taking steps to deport those who are here is a mortal enemy of the people living here. Any claim to the contrary is a complete lie.

Sam Donaldson at least was honest when he said "This is not your country anymore, it's our country." He meant what he said and he and people of like mind intend to make it so. This can not end peacefully.

Muslims: Year`round, world-class Grinches While on a road trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. After finishing their meal, they left the restaurant, and resumed their trip. When leaving, the elderly woman unknowingly left her glasses on the table, and she didn't miss them until they had been driving for about forty minutes. By then, to add to the aggravation, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around, in order to return to the restaurant to retrieve her glasses. All the way back, the elderly husband became the classic grouchy old man. He fussed and complained, and scolded his wife relentlessly during the entire return drive. The more he chided her, the more agitated he became. He just wouldn't let up for a single minute. To her relief, they finally arrived at the restaurant. As the woman got out of the car, and hurried inside to retrieve her glasses, the old geezer yelled to her, "While you're in there, get my hat and the credit card."

They’re being true to islam, they don’t recognize the Deity of Jesus Christ, nor the Holy Trinity and reject the Gospel thereby.

The most basic definition of the spirit of antichrist from the Epistles of John.

Good thing the percentage of muslims in Austrailia is below the critical threshold for real trouble.

Islam is a war plan.

Too bad the Aussies cut off their “2nd Amendment” balls.

Can they even act or think in a positive manner?

They have come as colonizers, not to become our countrymen.

The whole “Dar al harb” concept is all the proof one needs to dispel any notion of coexisting with them. Hell, they don’t even consider us to be human. We’re “harbis”, or kafirs, enemy aliens whose life & property are completely unprotected by their law, sharia.

Nail, meet hammer.

Every once in a while, “they” let the mask slip and let the civilized world glimpse a bit of the darkness within. But once they realize their error, they attempt to clean things up and go back into hiding.

I do not believe that they are capable of thinking or acting in a positive manner.

Then why do governments treat them as sensible beings?
