1001 Muslim Myths And Historical Revisions (Pamela Geller)

1001 Muslim Myths And Historical Revisions – Pamela Geller

.

.
CNN last Wednesday ran a viciously mendacious “article” dragging out the “Muslim inventions” myth – yet again.

This is hardly new; I wrote of it in 2012. CNN is pushing a new book that is based on 1001 Muslim Inventions, a traveling museum exhibit that has appeared all over the West to huge acclaim from the likes of Prince Charles. It has indoctrinated hundreds of thousands of children into a rosy and romanticized view of Islam that makes them less appreciative of their own culture’s achievements and more complacent about Islamization in the West.

And now we see historical revisionism take on a new life, as history is scrubbed and manufactured Muslim myths are presented as fact. “1001 Muslim Inventions” is almost unfailingly dishonest. It touts surgery as one of the top 10 Muslim inventions, but in reality, surgery began in the Neolithic era and was widely practiced in ancient Greece. Likewise, the coffee plant was discovered in Christian Ethiopia.

Next on CNN’s list is flight: “Abbas ibn Firnas was the first person to make a real attempt to construct a flying machine and fly.” Abbas ibn Firnas was a man who threw on a pair of manmade wings and attempted to fly, but only ended up breaking his back. That makes him the father of the flying machine?

Fourth in CNN’s top ten Muslim inventions is the university: “In 859 a young princess named Fatima al-Firhi founded the first degree-granting university in Fez, Morocco.” The first university? Tell it to the Jews, a people 6,000 years old, with education as the cornerstone of their culture. And Nalanda University of India dates back to the fifth century.

Then comes algebra, and this claim, as well as the others, is utter nonsense. A Muslim, Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn Musa, is often described as the originator of algebra. But Abu Ja’far lived between 780 and 850 AD; algebra nitiatedi in ancient Babylon, Egypt, and Athens, 2,500 years before Abu Ja’far was born.

Next is optics, which also began long before Islam, in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, where lenses were developed by artisans working from theories the Greek philosophers.

CNN even has the audacity to claim music as a Muslim invention, despite the fact that Islamic law forbids music. Are they kidding? Where are the Muslim Bachs, Beethovens, and Gershwins? What about Jewish music, which goes back over 5,000 years? Muhammad wasn’t even a twinkle in his father’s eye.

CNN also claims the toothbrush for Islam, saying that Muhammad, whom they refer to, of course, as “the prophet,” “popularized the use of the first toothbrush in around 600. Using a twig from the Meswak tree, he cleaned his teeth and freshened his breath.”

Muhammad was the first man to use an object to clean his teeth? Color me laughing. In reality, the bristle toothbrush wasn’t invented until 1498, in China. And the crank, the next item on CNN’s list (which was compiled by a crank indeed), dates back to Spain in the fifth century BC. The hospital, the last item on CNN’s list, goes back to ancient Rome.

With the advent of now daily jihad terror plots, arrests, and attacks, the Islamic/leftist machine is in fifth gear. Teen Vogue, the BBC, the Huffington Post, the New York Times, Newsweek and all the mainstream media outlets are churning out lies, myths and Islamic supremacist narratives to counter reality. Damn the truth, full speed ahead.

It’s endless, this sharia scrubbing of history. It’s why our children are not taught true Islamic history in the public schools: the jihadi wars, cultural annihilations, and enslavements or why the hundreds of millions of victims of Islamic wars have disappeared from world history courses.

Many of the inventions the Muslims take credit for are the inventions of the peoples, countries and lands they conquered. The booty from their conquests wasn’t only tangible gold, women, and monies, but intellectual theft as well.

The first Arabic-language medical treatise was written by a Christian priest and translated into Arabic by a Jewish doctor in 683. The first hospital was founded in Baghdad during the Abbasid caliphate – not by a Muslim, but a Nestorian Christian. A pioneering medical school was founded at Gundeshapur in Persia – by Assyrian Christians. The bottom line: the inventions and discoveries attributed to the Muslim world were actually stolen from conquered peoples.

CNN, by spreading this nonsense, shows itself yet again to be more interested in politically correct fiction than news. “1001 Muslim Inventions” is not history, but propaganda – and par for the course for the mainstream media these days.

Republican Governors Arm National Guardsmen In Response To Muslim Terrorist Attacks In Chattanooga

Governors Authorize National Guard To Be Armed After Chattanooga Attack – NBC News

.

.
Full-time military personnel at National Guard facilities in six states could soon be armed after deadly shootings at two Tennessee military facilities raised questions about the vulnerability of the country’s troops on home soil.

The governors of Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Florida and Indiana have authorized the arming of full-time National Guard members to deter attacks and allow them the ability to protect themselves and civilians in case they are targeted.

The orders made Friday and Saturday were in response to the deadly rampage in Chattanooga, in which Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez allegedly launched an attack against a storefront recruiting center and reserve station and killed four Marines. A Navy sailor injured in the attack died Saturday.

“It is painful enough when we lose members of our armed forces when they are sent in harm’s way, but it is unfathomable that they should be vulnerable for attack in our own communities,” said Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence issued an executive order Saturday authorizing the arming of personnel at military facilities and storefront recruiting stations. Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Saturday recommended security checks and bullet-proof glass at recruiting stations, and ordered recruiters relocated to armories until improvements are made.

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond T. Odierno said Friday that security at recruitment and training centers will be reviewed, but added that recruiters aren’t armed because of the Posse Comitatus Act, which prevents the military from engaging in domestic law enforcement. “We have to be careful about over-arming ourselves,” Odierno said.

Sen. Ron Johnson a Republican who represents Wisconsin and is chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said Friday he will introduce legislation “calling for the termination of regulations that prohibit members of the Armed Forces from carrying certain firearms on military installations.”

“By disarming the Armed Forces, gun-free policies at military facilities have made our men and women in uniform easy targets for terrorist attacks,” Johnson said.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter ordered that the military deliver recommendations to improve the safety of service members at home by the end of the week.

Utah’s governor said the National Guard was authorized to carry weapons on military facilities last year. Gov. Gary R. Herbert said in a statement Saturday that he directed the Guard to examine ways to further protect military personnel in the state.

Obama Regime Celebrates Islamic Holiday On Same Day Muslim Murders Four Marines In Tennessee

White House Celebrates Muslim Holiday On Day Muhammad Murders Four Marines – Breitbart

President Barack Obama sent a celebratory message to Muslims around the world on the White House Twitter account nearly two hours before his first tweet on the subject of four dead Marines killed by an Islamic gunman.

“From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!” – @POTUS to Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr,” the White House tweeted. This message was tweeted at 4:48 p.m. according to the White House Twitter feed.
.

.
A few minutes before the posting of this article, the White House tweeted a video message, shown below, calling the shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a “heartbreaking circumstance.” Others might call the incident “a terrorist attack.” This message was tweeted at 6:08 p.m. according to the White House Twitter feed.

.

.
On Thursday afternoon, Breitbart News reported a claim by the Chattanooga Times Free Press identifying the shooter who killed four Marines in an attack on an armed forces recruiting center in Chattanooga as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez. It was not clear if this was the man, or if it was his father.

“A U.S. official says the gunman in the shootings in Tennessee has been identified as 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez,” according to the Associated Press.

CNN has also reported the shooter being identified by the FBI as Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24. He was killed at the scene.

The incident is being investigated by the FBI terrorism task force.

The president has been criticized this week for a number of insensitive moves regarding the deaths and captivity of Americans. Earlier this week, President Obama remained silent on the death of Kate Steinle, the woman murdered by a previously deported illegal alien, as reported by Breitbart News’ Alex Swoyer.

That same day, Breitbart News’ Jeff Poor reported about the president’s chastisement of CBS White House correspondent Major Garrett over his questioning the president’s negotiations with Iran that left four Americans in captivity in the wake of his nuclear arms agreement.

20,000 Muslim Extremists Flood Into Syria And Iraq To Support ISIS

20,000 Foreign Fighters Flood into Syria-Iraq – Gateway Pundit

.

The ISIS five-year plan includes extending the Caliphate into Libya and Europe.

.
At least 20,000 foreign fighters have streamed into Syria to join ISIS US intelligence officials say in an updated report.

CBS News reported:

Foreign fighters are streaming into Syria and Iraq in unprecedented numbers to join the Islamic State or Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or other extremist groups, including at least 3,400 from Western nations among 20,000 from around the world, U.S. intelligence officials say in an updated estimate of a top terrorism concern.

Intelligence agencies now believe that as many as 150 Americans have tried and some have succeeded in reaching in the Syrian war zone, officials told the House Homeland Security Committee in testimony prepared for delivery on Wednesday. Some of those Americans were arrested en route, some died in the area and a small number are still fighting with extremists.

The testimony and other data were obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press. A U.S. intelligence official confirmed the information to CBS News.

Nick Rasmussen, chief of the National Counterterrorism Center, said the rate of foreign fighter travel to Syria is without precedent, far exceeding the rate of foreigners who went to wage jihad in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen or Somalia at any other point in the past 20 years.

U.S. officials fear that some of the foreign fighters, who come from 90 countries, will return undetected to their homes in Europe or the U.S. to mount terrorist attacks. At least one of the men responsible for the attack on a satirical magazine in Paris had spent time with Islamic extremists in Yemen.

Britain’s Many, MANY Muslim Child-Rape Gangs

Hundreds More Muslim Rape Gang Cases Discovered In UK – Front Page

.

.
The Muslim rape gang scandal in Britain just keeps getting worse. Last August, the BBC reported that “at least 1,400 children were subjected to appalling sexual exploitation in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013, a report has found. Children as young as 11 were raped by multiple perpetrators, abducted, trafficked to other cities in England, beaten and intimidated, it said.” Five months later, not only has little been done to combat this scourge, but it has grown exponentially worse: hundreds of new cases have been discovered, and one of the victims says that those who abused her are “untouchable.”

Sky News reported that in addition to the 1,400 cases revealed last year, “hundreds more cases were known to authorities prior to its publication and that hundreds more are being reported.” The victim who spoke to Sky News said that now all these months after the news first broke of the extent of this savage exploitation, “It’s still going on if not worse, because now they’re having to hide it more. I’m still seeing my abusers driving young girls in their car. They’re untouchable.” She said of the police that “all they care about is getting a statement. Six months on we’ve had no arrests, we’ve had no charges, evidence is still being lost.”

These words were reported a month after a team of government commissioners took over the Rotherham Council, after finding it in “complete denial” about the scandal.

Why is this happening? What illness has overtaken British authorities, such that they are covering up these cases and doing little or nothing to apprehend offenders? The answer lies in the fact that these are not simply criminal cases involving outlaw gangs. The rape gangs are made up of Muslims who believe that the Qur’an (4:3; 4:24; 23:1-6; 33:50) and Islamic law allow them to capture non-Muslim girls and press them into sexual slavery, as we have also seen the jihadists of Boko Haram and the Islamic State also do in the past year. And British authorities have feared to confront the problem in its full magnitude because they’re afraid of the stigma of stigmas in the twenty-first century West: being called “racist.”

In Rotherham, British officials “described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought as racist; others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so.” The very idea that “racism” was a factor here reflects the myopia of the British government and media elites, who consistently frame issues regarding jihad terror and Islamic supremacism as racial. In fact, however, the rape gangs operated not because they were made up of men of Pakistani origin, but because they were made up of Muslims who believed that infidel girls were nothing more than, in the immortal words of the Grand Mufti of Australia a few years ago, “uncovered meat.”

In any case, the fear of being stigmatized with the “racist” charge is unmistakably what hindered the proper prosecution of the rape gangs, and hinders it still. The perpetrators are untouchable because the British authorities have yet to tackle, and may never tackle, what really makes them untouchable: the prevailing culture – not just in Britain, but in the U.S. also, and all over the West – that consigns all concerns about the activity of Muslims, whether it be jihad terror or Sharia- and Qur’an-inspired sex trafficking, as here, to “racism” and “Islamophobia.” The officials who swept these cases under the rug were terrified of being called “bigots” by the likes of Nick Lowles of the Leftist organization Hope Not Hate, which acts determinedly to smear and marginalize anyone who dares raise a voice against large-scale Muslim criminality and the Islamization of Britain; and Fiyaz Mughal of TellMamaUK, an organization dedicated to combating “Islamophobia” in Britain – by which it means even the smallest, weakest opposition to jihad terror and Islamic supremacism.

People like Lowles and Mughal have real power in David Cameron’s shattered, staggering, terrified, dhimmi Britain. The members of the Rotherham Council may quite reasonably have thought that if they revealed the full magnitude of Muslim rape gang activity, and prosecuted the offenders energetically, they would be accused of exaggerating the problem, or even of fabricating it altogether, out of a deep-seated “racism” and “Islamophobia.” They could consequently have lost their jobs and never gotten another one. So they kept quiet. And the victim tally grew ever higher.

As Britain races to ruin, these officials can console themselves that even as thousands of girls’ lives were ruined on their watch, and the world was treated to the spectacle of a free nation submitting meekly to barbaric activity on a shocking scale, at least they were never, ever “racist.”

Secret White House Muslim Meeting Guest List Won’t Be Released – What Could Be The Reason For That? (Rick Wells)

Secret White House Muslim Meeting Guest List Won’t Be Released – What Could Be The Reason For That? – Rick Wells

.

.
On Wednesday afternoon, Hussein Obama held a closed door, secret meeting with what are described as American Muslim leaders in the White House. Despite attempts by the press to obtain information as to the identities of the visitors, that information was not being provided.

Perhaps some Muslim leaders don’t want people to know that they are associating with Hussein Obama, and that would be a truly understandable position for any self-respecting American to adopt. In that case perhaps their individual name might have somehow been kept of the record or secret, though it might be difficult. In this case, with the entire list of attendees being withheld, the only reasonable source of that decision must be the White House itself. They have control of the information, individual attendees do not.

Since the decision must have come from the White House, the only plausible explanation is that there were attendees at his meeting who they did not want the American people to know Obama was hosting. The only logical reason for wanting to keep their identities private is because they have extreme views or attachments to radicals, radical groups or terrorist organizations.

Brietbart reported that the regime released a readout of the meeting which consisted of the general topics of “a range of domestic and foreign policy issues” which included “Obamacare, police fairness, anti-Muslim discrimination, and the upcoming Summit on Countering Violence Extremism.”

In the face of increased public concern over the threat of a terrorist attack, the regime’s failure to respond in a timely manner and participate in the French march and yesterday’s ISIS video of the murder of the Jordanian pilot, what Hussein Obama is concerned with is whether or not Muslims are being treated properly.

The readout also noted, “The President discussed the need to continue countering ISIL and other groups that commit horrific acts of violence, purportedly in the name of Islam.” It’s no surprise that an obligatory entry in the agenda summary, an afterthought it appears, was made to deflect the criticism that might have arisen if the topic of Islamic terrorism were left out of the discussion entirely.

Josh Earnest, running the typical, daily cover for the subversives in the White House, said, that it wasn’t unusual for Hussein Obama to meet with “a wide variety of communities from across the country.” He then included this particular meeting into the “not unusual” category by saying, “Sometimes that includes religious leaders; sometimes that includes leaders that are involved in academia or other specific issue areas.”

Just what other specific issue areas that might be was also part of the secret being kept by this least transparent regime in American history.

President Asshat Equates Muslim Terrorists To Christians During National Prayer Breakfast (Video)

Obama’s (Im)moral Equivalence Between ISIS And Christianity – Big Government

.

.
President Barack Obama offered the nation a lesson in moral relativism at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, when he admonished Americans not to “get on our high horse” about radical Islam because “people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” including here in the United States. Obama’s statement was both immoral and insensitive, and appeared to excuse the grotesque atrocities carried out by radical Islam, as well as his own passivity in responding.

Obama’s moral equivalence – immoral equivalence, really – between medieval Christianity and contemporary radical Islam points to the fundamental reason that he has often refused to identify terrorism as more than “workplace violence”, and “extremism” as something other than radical Islam. Obama’s focus is to transform America, and to do that he first needs to humble America, to convince Americans that there is nothing innately better or exceptional about our chosen values.

While it is true that history is replete with examples of people carrying out atrocities in the name of nearly every faith and ideology, in the context of our present circumstances, where the jihadists of the so-called Islamic State are taunting the world with their brutality, to declare that “it’s not unique to one group or one religion” is to abdicate any pretense at moral leadership in rallying the nation and the world to stop what is happening–and to prevent it from spreading elsewhere.

Instead, Obama called on Americans to “start with some… humility.” He told Americans to “not be so full of yourself and so confident that you are right” and that “somehow we alone are in possession of the truth.” Not only does he often fail to take that advice, but his self-righteousness about his own moral relativism is self-contradictory. He has shown more passion in admonishing Americans than condemning terror. Worse than insulting, his remarks are a disgrace to the office he holds.
