Wow! Who would have guessed that George Clooney is a closet Islamophobe? That’s a bombshell. Here he is calling for a mini- BDS of Brunei for implementing Sharia law: the morals and values and ethics that underpin Islam.
“Brunei, a Muslim-majority former British protectorate with a population of around 400,000, implemented the Sharia laws beginning April 3, punishing sodomy, adultery and rape with the death penalty, including by stoning, and theft with amputation.”
How dare Clooney criticize Islam? Not to worry. He is not alone!
Ellen DeGeneres and Elton John are aghast.
“Stoning people to death for homosexuality or adultery is appalling and immoral,” former U.S. vice president Joe Biden said in a Twitter post “There is no excuse – not culture, not tradition – for this kind of hate and inhumanity.”
Am I reading this correctly? Joe Biden is criticizing Islam? For hate and inhumanity?
In order to force Brunei to change their Islamic laws, Oscar-winning actor George Clooney has called for a boycott of luxury hotels owned by The Brunei Investment Company, such as the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Dorchester in London and the Plaza Athenee in Paris. Another…Wow. Now that should get the Sultan’s attention. Boycotting hotels that only the rich and famous can afford and most of us never heard of them.
I don’t understand this. I was under the impression that these Progressives believe in the practice of Islam in the West. This is Islam. And the Sultan’s statement clearly points out that Sharia law “aims to educate, respect and protect the legitimate rights of all individuals, society or nationality of any faiths and race.”
The good news: one does not have to be a Muslim to be subjected to the laws! Isn’t that promoted in the West? All of the people are subjected to the same laws.
Canada, where the Prime Minister reminds us over and over that Islam is compatible with the West, has tweeted its concerns: Canada is deeply concerned with #Brunei’s decision to punish members of the #LGBTQ2 community under its new penal code. Canada supports #humanrights for all and will always oppose the #deathpenalty.
At the same time, though, Canada has not said anything about Islam as it is taught in Canada regarding the LGBTQ community. At an April 1996 conference, Canadian imam Zafar Bangash was criticizing the West for being “proud of being homosexuals,” and saying: “It is time for us to pick up the stones to stone these people to death for [this] abomination… Allah imposes [this responsibility] upon us.”
February 20, 2019, Mazin AbdulAdhim, a prominent Canadian Muslim scholar and Imam of Iraqi descent who is affiliated with the pro-Caliphate Islamic global movement of Hizb ut-Tahrir posted on his Facebook page the following: (archive)
I’ve been asked many times about whether or not I believe that homosexuality is genetic. And my answer is: I believe that homosexuality is absolutely not genetic in any way, shape, or form. It is entirely conceptual, period. It is no different from being sexually attracted to one’s own siblings, or one’s parents, or infants, or animals. None of those things are genetic, and neither is homosexuality…It is a sexual perversion, an illness of the desires, and it must be accepted as such, then suppressed and trained out of one’s feelings through a positive process of correction of one’s concepts, control of one’s inner thoughts, positive reminders of the Islamic viewpoint on procreation and sexuality,
He also noted:
In terms of morality, the West is absolutely a cesspool of corruption and depravity...The zina [fornication, adultery], the pornography, the prostitution, the drinking, [t]he drugs, the Kufr [heresy] and insulting of Prophets, you name it, they are widespread in the West far, far more than in any of the Muslim lands, and they are completely accepted here as normal and aren’t even considered wrong.
And cutting of limbs? This is taught in Canada and America:
Islam prescribes chopping off the hands of the convicted robber. “As to the thief, male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of example, from Allah, for their crime: and Allah is Exalted in power, full of wisdom.” (Quran 5:38)
The non-muslim may say, “Chopping off the hands in this 20th century. Islam is a barbaric and ruthless religion!”
America is supposed to be one of the most advanced countries in the world. Unfortunately it also has one of the highest rates of crime, theft, and robbery.
Suppose the Islamic Law is implemented in America i.e. every rich person gives Zakat ( 2.5% of his savings in charity above 85 grams of gold every lunar year), and every convicted robber has his or her hands chopped off as a punishment.
Will the rate of theft and robbery in America increase, remain same or decrease? Naturally it will decrease. Moreover the existence of such a stringent law would discourage many a potential robber.
Daniel Haqiqatjou, a proud Muslim, was born in Houston Texas. He is a scholar of Islam. He attended Harvard University where he majored in Physics and minored in Philosophy. He was over the moon when Brunei announced that it would implement Sharia Law for all in that country.
“If you have had a rough week or are feeling down in the dumps, I have just the news to cheer you up. The Muslim country of Brunei is implementing hudud [fixed punishments] to crack down on sodomites and fornicators!
…This is exactly right. The Sharia [Islamic Law] protects all of our rights, individually and communally. When rectum-sex enthusiasts are allowed to promote their gender-bending degeneracy openly, that deeply harms all of us. That brings down the moral character of society. That destroys the sanctity of marriage. That teaches the world that sexual desire — no matter how base, how deviant, how contrary to God’s will — is acceptable to pursue and, in fact, must be pursued.
The LGBT indoctrination program, however, doesn’t want you to recognize these harms. They want you to think gay sex acts are “victimless” and that marriage between men and women is not a sanctified institution. Rather, marriage, according to them, can be remolded into anything that society chooses: two men, two women, two men and one woman, three women and a horse, etc. There is nothing special or unique about the relationship between men and women that forecloses the possibility of LGBT marital options.
As Haqiqatjou said regarding the statements by the “celebrities.”
By the way, how silly that these Western politicians and celebrities can’t stand it that a Muslim country implements the Sharia. They are frothing with anger. Isn’t it great?
I leave you with two videos.
