Sunni Islam leader calls for peace, urges Muslims to have 'patience and wisdom'

From Ian Lee and Mohamed Fadel Fahmy, CNN

A leading figure in the Sunni Islam world called for fellow believers to respond to recent controversial portrayals of Mohammed - which he said "spread hatred" - just like the prophet himself would, "through patience and wisdom."

The Grand Mufti of Egypt Ali Gomaa spoke to CNN as Muslims staged yet more passionate protests Saturday in yet more locales, from Germany to Lebanon to Bangladesh, as they have since September 11. Demonstrators railed against an obscure, 14-minute trailer for a film that mocks Mohammed as a womanizer, child molester and killer - as well as the country in which it was privately produced, the United States - and more recently a French satirical magazine's cartoons of a figure representing Mohammed.

    If I disturbed an anthill and the Grand Mufti of the ants called on the ants to respond with patience and wisdom what would happen?

    If I made a movie that showed the Prophet Mohammed as he truly was and the Grand Mufti of Egypt called on the faithful to respond with patience and wisdom what would happen?

    Mufti himself is an error, because being suni, established on path of truth absolute is part of Islam and one of the commandment of truth absolute, Allah the merciful, all of commandments of Quran, are reference to way of Muslim's followers of truth absolute. So is word Shea or Shiit, meaning nothing but to be pro, of a person, in reference to following of certain person or a path. an adjective non a noun. Commanded is following of what is commanded in, Quran, path of truth absolute, quantified and living by example of Hidth, limits, truth as Syadana Mohammad pbh as he lived and explained.
    Time to understand truth of Islam, Theen Allah, consti tution of truth absolute, teaching's of Allah the merciful and get out of hinduism, corruption of truth absolute religion's, relegated not by commandments of Allah, the merciful but hindu criminal Kings' and their hindu Jew criminal self centered advisory's, such as SUNI and SHea, based not on truth absolute but hinduism, corruption of truth absolute to justify existence of hindu King's, deniers of truth absolute in following of hindu Mithra ism, criminal savior ism of hindu pagan origin. Get rid of divide of Muslims by hindu criminal ISM"S as religion's and work to unite not just Muslim's but whole humanity under umbrella of truth absolute for peace, Islam among humanity.

      I use dialogue to kill your religion. I use truth to show your lies. I use logic to show how your god does not exist.
      I have proof that will stand up in any American court as to the lies of your religion. You will never win against me, for this war is about truth versus lies. No matter how many lies you tell, they will always be lies no matter how many believe the lies.
      No matter how many religious lies are spread, there will be people like me who KNOW that they are lies.
      I am not scared of death. Death is the stopping of life. There is no life after death and no gods to give you anything.
      Your death is certain, as is mine. Your lies do not change the fact that everyone dies. Your god does nothing to help anyone because your god does not exist. You are a fool and you will die a fool unless you fight against the lies.

    The Muslims are NOT HAPPY in Gaza, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, and Indonesia.
    The Muslims ARE HAPPY in Australia, England, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, the USA, Norway, Holland, and Denmark.
    Muslims are HAPPY in every country that is NOT Muslim and UNHAPPY in every country that IS!
    WHO do the Muslims blame? not Islam; not their leadership; not themselves.
    And then; They want to CHANGE those countries to be like....THE COUNTRY THEY CAME FROM WHERE THEY WERE UNHAPPY!

    I think those above who make statements about Islam in isolation from other religions are a part of the current problem - you are breeding hatred. So, if you must share that you believe Islam is a false religion, why not just share that all religions are false. If you must share that the Quran is full of lies, say all religious texts are full of lies, all prophets are false, etc. By singling out Islam, one turns a philosophical position into hate speech. Many of the commentors here seem full of hate - you are a big part of the problem.

      Putting the kibosh/”google” on all religions:

      • As far as one knows or can tell, there was no Abraham i.e. the foundations of Judaism, Christianity and Islam are non-existent.

      • As far as one knows or can tell, there was no Moses i.e the pillars of Judaism, Christianity and Islam have no strength of purpose.

      • There was no Gabriel i.e. Islam fails as a religion. Christianity partially fails.

      • There was no Easter i.e. Christianity completely fails as a religion.

      • There was no Moroni i.e. Mormonism is nothing more than a business cult.

      • Sacred/revered cows, monkey gods, castes, reincarnations and therefore Hinduism fails as a religion.

      • Fat Buddhas here, skinny Buddhas there, reincarnated Buddhas everywhere makes for a no on Buddhism.

      Added details available upon written request.

      A quick search will put the kibosh on any other groups calling themselves a religion.

      e.g. Taoism

      "The origins of Taoism are unclear. Traditionally, Lao-tzu who lived in the sixth century is regarded as its founder. Its early philosophic foundations and its later beliefs and rituals are two completely different ways of life. Today (1982) Taoism claims 31,286,000 followers.

      Legend says that Lao-tzu was immaculately conceived by a shooting star; carried in his mother's womb for eighty-two years; and born a full grown wise old man. "

    A far superior, safe and peaceful solution:

    Only for new members of this blog:

    From the studies of Armstrong, Rushdie, Hirsi Ali, Richardson and Bayhaqi----–

    The Five Steps To Deprogram 1400 Years of Islamic Myths:

    ( –The Steps take less than two minutes to finish- simply amazing, two minutes to bring peace and rationality to over one billion lost souls- Priceless!!!)

    Are you ready?

    Using "The 77 Branches of Islamic "faith" a collection compiled by Imam Bayhaqi as a starting point. In it, he explains the essential virtues that reflect true "faith" (iman) through related Qur’anic verses and Prophetic sayings." i.e. a nice summary of the Koran and Islamic beliefs.

    The First Five of the 77 Branches:

    "1. Belief in Allah"

    aka as God, Yahweh, Zeus, Jehovah, Mother Nature, etc. should be added to your self-cleansing neurons.

    "2. To believe that everything other than Allah was non-existent. Thereafter, Allah Most High created these things and subsequently they came into existence."

    Evolution and the Big Bang or the "Gi-b G-nab" (when the universe starts to recycle) are more plausible and the "akas" for Allah should be included if you continue to be a "crea-tionist".

    "3. To believe in the existence of angels."

    A major item for neuron cleansing. Angels/de-vils are the mythical creations of ancient civilizations, e.g. Hitt-ites, to explain/define natural events, contacts with their gods, big birds, sudden winds, protectors during the dark nights, etc. No "pretty/ug-ly wingy thingies" ever visited or talked to Mohammed, Jesus, Mary or Joseph or Joe Smith. Today we would classify angels as f–airies and "tin–ker be-lls". Modern de-vils are classified as the de-mons of the de-mented.

    "4. To believe that all the heavenly books that were sent to the different prophets are true. However, apart from the Quran, all other books are not valid anymore."

    Another major item to delete. There are no books written in the spirit state of Heaven (if there is one) just as there are no angels to write/publish/distribute them. The Koran, OT, NT etc. are simply books written by humans for humans.

    Prophets were invented by ancient scribes typically to keep the un-educated masses in line. Today we call them for-tune tellers.

    Prophecies are also invali-dated by the natural/God/Allah gifts of Free Will and Future.

    "5. To believe that all the prophets are true. However, we are commanded to follow the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings
    be upon him) alone."

    Mohammed spent thirty days "fasting" (the Ramadan legend) in a hot cave before his first contact with Allah aka God etc. via a "pretty wingy thingy". Common sense demands a neuron deletion of #5. #5 is also the major source of Islamic vi-olence i.e. turning Mohammed's "fast, hunger-driven" hallu-cinations into horrible reality for unbelievers.

    Walk these Five Steps and we guarantee a complete recovery from your Islamic ways!!!!

    Unfortunately, there are not many Muslim commentators/readers on this blog so the "two-minute" cure is not getting to those who need it. If you have a Muslim friend, send him a copy and help save the world.

    Analogous steps are available at your request for deprogramming the myths of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Paganism..

    From Google Translate:

    من دراسات ارمسترونغ، رشدي، علي هيرسي، والبيهقي ريتشاردسون ----–

    الخطوات الخمس لأبطل تأثير الخرافات من 1400 سنة الإسلامي:

    (-اتخاذ خطوات أقل من دقيقتين إلى دقيقة، والانتهاء ببساطة مذهلة-سنتين إلى إحلال السلام والعقلانية لأكثر من مليار نسمة، فقد لا تقدر بثمن!)

    هل أنت مستعد؟

    استخدام "الفروع الإسلامية 77 من" الإيمان "مجموعة الإمام البيهقي جمعتها كنقطة انطلاق. في ذلك، وهو ما يفسر الفضائل الأساسية التي تعكس صحيح" الإيمان "(إيمان) من خلال الآيات القرآنية وأحاديث نبوية ذات الصلة." أي ملخصا لطيفة من المعتقدات الإسلامية والقرآن الكريم.

    والخمسة الأولى من الفروع 77:

    "1، والإيمان بالله"

    وينبغي أن يضاف الملقب كما الله، الرب، زيوس، الرب، الطبيعة الأم، وما إلى ذلك لالخلايا العصبية الذاتية التطهير الخاص.

    "2. وإذا ما تصورنا أن كل شيء غير الله كان غير موجود. بعد ذلك، خلق الله العلي هذه الأمور لاحقا وجاء إلى حيز الوجود."

    التطور والانفجار الكبير أو "غي ب G-NAB" (عندما يبدأ الكون لإعادة تدوير) هي أكثر قبولا وينبغي إدراج "المندرجة" في سبيل الله إذا كنت لا تزال تشكل "CREA-tionist".

    "3. إلى الاعتقاد في وجود الملائكة".

    A بندا رئيسيا لتطهير الخلايا العصبية. الملائكة / دي vils-الإبداعات الأسطورية هي من الحضارات القديمة، على سبيل المثال Hitt خائبي، لشرح / تحديد الأحداث الطبيعية، والاتصالات مع آلهتهم، والطيور الكبيرة، والرياح المفاجئة، وحماة في ليالي الظلام، وما إلى ذلك لا "جميلة / UG-لاي ثينجيس افسح المجال ل" أو بزيارة أي وقت مضى تحدث إلى محمد، يسوع، مريم أو جوزيف سميث أو جو. اليوم سوف نصنف الملائكة كما airies-F و "كير القصدير يكون LLS-". وتصنف الحديثة دي vils كما دي مونس هيئة اجتثاث mented.

    "4. إذا ما تصورنا أن جميع الكتب السماوية التي تم إرسالها إلى الأنبياء مختلفة صحيحا، ولكن بصرف النظر عن القرآن الكريم، كل الكتب الأخرى غير صالحة بعد الآن."

    آخر بندا رئيسيا في حذفها. لا توجد كتب في ولاية روح السماء (إن وجد) كما لا توجد الملائكة لكتابة / نشر / توزيعها. القرآن، OT، NT وما هي ببساطة كتب من قبل البشر للبشر.

    اخترعت من قبل الأنبياء الكتبة القديمة عادة للحفاظ على الجماهير من الامم المتحدة والمتعلمين في الصف. اليوم ونحن ندعو لهم مقابل لحن فرز الأصوات.

    كما نبوءات invali مؤرخة من قبل الهدايا الطبيعية / الله / الله من الإرادة الحرة والمستقبل.

    "5. لنعتقد أن جميع الأنبياء صحيحة، ولكن ونحن أمرنا اتباع النبي محمد (عليه الصلاة والسلام
    صلى الله عليه وسلم) وحده. "

    قضى محمد ثلاثين يوما "الصيام" (أسطورة رمضان) في كهف الساخن قبل لقاءه الأول مع الله ويعرف أيضا باسم الله وما إلى ذلك من خلال "افسح المجال ل ثينغي جميلة". الحس السليم يتطلب حذف الخلايا العصبية من رقم 5. # 5 هو أيضا المصدر الرئيسي للالاسلامي VI-olence أي تحول محمد "سريع والجوع يحركها" hallu-cinations إلى واقع فظيع لغير المؤمنين.

    المشي هذه الخطوات الخمس ونحن نضمن انتعاش الكامل من طرقك الإسلامية!!

    للأسف، لا توجد العديد من المعلقين مسلم / القراء على هذا بلوق لذلك "لمدة دقيقتين" هو عدم الحصول على علاج لأولئك الذين في حاجة إليها. إذا كان لديك صديق مسلم، وإرسال نسخة منه وتساعد في إنقاذ العالم.

    خطوات مماثلة متوفرة في طلبك للحصول على deprogramming الأساطير المسيحية واليهودية والبوذية والهندوسية والوثنية ..

We may not agree on religious philosophies, but everyone should have the right to live in peace. This is a lesson that many fundamentalist christians and atheists would be wise to learn too.

      The koran, Mohammed's book of death for all infidels and Muslim domination of the world by any means.

      Muslims must clean up this book removing said passages admitting that they are based on the Gabriel myth and therefore obviously the hallucinations and/or lies of Mohammed.

      Then we can talk about the safety and location of mosques and what is taught therein.

      Mohammed was an illiterate, womanizing, lust and greed-driven, warmongering, hallucinating Arab, who also had embellishing/hallucinating/plagiarizing scribal biographers who not only added "angels" and flying chariots to the koran but also a militaristic agenda to support the plundering and looting of the lands of non-believers.

      This agenda continues as shown by the ma-ssacre in Mumbai, the as-sas-sinations of Bhutto and Theo Van Gogh, the conduct of the seven Muslim doctors in the UK, the 9/11 terrorists, the 24/7 Sunni suicide/roadside/market/mosque bombers, the 24/7 Shiite suicide/roadside/market/mosque bombers, the Islamic bombers of the trains in the UK and Spain, the Bali crazies, the Kenya crazies, the Pakistani “koranics”, the Palestine suicide bombers/rocketeers, the Lebanese nutcases, the Taliban nut jobs, the Ft. Hood follower of the koran, and the Filipino “koranics”.

      And who funds this muck and stench of terror? The warmongering, Islamic, Shiite terror and torture theocracy of Iran aka the Third Axis of Evil and also the Sunni "Wannabees" of Saudi Arabia.

      Current crises:

      Prayer does not; you are such a LIAR. You have NO proof it changes anything! A great example of prayer proven not to work is the Christians in jail because prayer didn't work and their children died. For example: Susan Grady, who relied on prayer to heal her son. Nine-year-old Aaron Grady died and Susan Grady was arrested.

      An article in the Journal of Pediatrics examined the deaths of 172 children from families who relied upon faith healing from 1975 to 1995. They concluded that four out of five ill children, who died under the care of faith healers or being left to prayer only, would most likely have survived if they had received medical care.

      The statistical studies from the nineteenth century and the three CCU studies on prayer are quite consistent with the fact that humanity is wasting a huge amount of time on a procedure that simply doesn’t work. Nonetheless, faith in prayer is so pervasive and deeply rooted, you can be sure believers will continue to devise future studies in a desperate effort to confirm their beliefs!^

      If you cannot change your mind and break free of the lies, then you might need to be put away where you cannot hurt other people. If you attack people, they have the right to defend themselves.
      If you want peace, give peace. If you want war, give war. We can deal with you either way.

    I urge all Muslims to cast off the madness of their religion and join the rest of the human race in the 21st Century.

      Baloo, madness is something when a person say something without having knowledge of it like you(Baloo).
      We have proved our religion by dialogues with other scholars
      Must watch dialogue between
      Dr. Zakir Naik slapped on the face of DR. WILLIAM CAMPBELL using his strong explanations about ISLAM.

      Your Q'uran is a worthless piece of garbage, Hamid. There is no lie you can say that will change this truth.
      I will burn any Quran I can. I demand that you stop pretending you know what any "god" wants and let your "god" do something all by itself. Your actions are supporting a lie. You have no honor worth mentioning if you continue to support a lie as big as Islam.
      Do everyone a favor and destroy your Q'uran immediately. It is filled with lies. You base your hate on those lies.
      If you want peace with me, you will stop being a Muslim and start being a peaceful human being who wants to live in peace with all other people. I am only one man, but I have already declared war on all religion. Religion will die because it is filled with lies. Islam is worthless and if you think it is honorable you lie.

      correction: If you think it is honorable you are wrong. You may believe you are correct and truthful, but you have been fooled by the lies of the religion. Lies cannot stand up to the truth.
