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.



BlackLivesMatter Protesters Set To Hold Rally For Dead Islamo-Nazi Who Plotted To Behead Pamela Geller

Protesters Plan Rally For Terror Suspect Who Plotted To Behead Pamela Geller – The Examiner


On Wednesday, CNN reported that Usaamah Rahim, the terror suspect fatally shot by police after waving a knife at officers in Boston, originally plotted to behead Pamela Geller, the organizer of the Garland free-speech event targeted by two Islamic gunmen. Meanwhile, Ferguson #BlackLivesMatter protesters are set to hold a rally for Rahim this Friday at the Ferguson Police Department.

The Facebook event page appears to have been hacked, but the description remains intact as of this writing. “#BlackLivesMatter Protest police Murder and Profiling of our Black brothers. We must stand strong and resist tyrant pigs and feds who killed Usaama Rahim. Invite your Family and Friends and lets take our streets back,” the page says.

“It’s our duty to tell the evil government we won’t put up with it any longer,” the event says. “Heads will roll,” the statement ironically adds.

Court documents indicate that Rahim changed his mind and decided to attack police officers instead. “I can’t wait that long,” he reportedly said of the original plan. Officials said they believe Rahim was radicalized by ISIS and other extremists, CNN added.

Geller, the target of death threats, responded sharply on her blog. “They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by then voluntarily,” she wrote. “This is a showdown for American freedom. Will we stand against this savagery, or bow down to them and silence ourselves? ”

Geller told CNN she’s had an “army of security” since the Garland attack. “This is what is required just to show a cartoon in America, 2015,” she added. “It’s striking. It’s devastating, and people need to understand what’s at stake. I mean, if we surrender on this point, what will we surrender next?”

Rahim’s brother, Ibrahim, claimed on social media that Usaamah was shot three times in the back. Police, however, say the incident was recorded on surveillance video. They also decided to show it to community leaders, including Muslim leaders, NBC News said, in the interest of transparency.

“Darnell Williams, head of the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts, said the video ‘150 percent’ corroborates the police account,” NBC added. Abdullah Faaruuq, imam of Boston’s Mosque for the Praising of Allah, called the video’s images,”vague,” but admitted that Rahim did not appear to obey officers’ commands. But, he added, “we’re not satisfied until [the case is] fully vetted.”

It’s uncertain how many people will actually appear at the protest. As of Wednesday evening, only two supporters said they would attend, but that could be a result of the event being hacked.



Selective Outrage Syndrome hits Gay Mafia

Ever notice how groups affiliated with the far Left go nuts with outrage over some things, like Phil Robertson asking how a man prefers men over women, but seems content with followers of Rabid Sharia when they hang Gay men? Well, folks, the Left just cannot help themselves, they suffer from a dreaded malady I have diagnosed called Selective Outrage Syndrome, or S.O.S. Such a malady might just be caused by the fact that the Left hates Christianity, a faith of forgiveness and redemption, more than they hate radical strains of Islam which call for death to anyone who dares stray from whatever the hell it is radical Islamists want.

Another story the media will never tell. Why Miami-Dade schools could have saved Trayvon Martin

The Other McCain looks into an angle of the Trayvon Martin case that I would bet you have not heard

I hadn’t followed every detail of the Trayvon Martin story, which meant I missed one of the biggest untold aspects of the story: How a see-no-evil policy by Miami-Dade Schools resulted in Trayvon getting off lightly — suspended from school for criminal acts that should have gotten him arrested.

The Last Refuge has been trying to call attention to this story for months, but of course, the mainstream media wouldn’t touch it because it looked like a story about demonizing the dead kid. (Mark Steyn had some harsh comments about the beatification of St. Trayvon, if you’re interested.) But I never noticed this angle until Pamela Geller blogged it Sunday and, the more I read about it, the more I realized that this isn’t so much about Trayvon being a hoodlum. No, this is a story about bureaucrats trying to game the system, and pretend that there was less crime in the Miami-Dade schools than there actually was. The villain in this story isn’t a racist, just a disgraced cop:

The February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martion might never have happened if school officials in Miami-Dade County had not instituted an unofficial policy of treating crimes as school disciplinary infractions. Revelations that emerged from an internal affairs investigation explain why Martin was not arrested when caught at school with stolen jewerly in October 2011 or with marijuana in February 2012. Instead, the teenager was suspended from school, the last time just days before he was shot dead by George Zimmerman.
Trayvon Martin was not from Sanford, the town north of Orlando where he was shot in 2012 and where a jury acquitted Zimmerman of murder charges Saturday. Martin was from Miami Gardens, more than 200 miles away, and had come to Sanford to stay with his father’s girlfriend Brandy Green at her home in the townhouse community where Zimmerman was in charge of the neighborhood watch. Trayvon was staying with Green after he had been suspended for the second time in six months from Krop High School in Miami-Dade County, where both his father, Tracy Martin, and mother, Sybrina Fulton, lived.
Both of Trayvon’s suspensions during his junior year at Krop High involved crimes that could have led to his prosecution as a juvenile offender. However, Chief Charles Hurley of the Miami-Dade School Police Department (MDSPD) in 2010 had implemented a policy that reduced the number of criminal reports, manipulating statistics to create the appearance of a reduction in crime within the school system. Less than two weeks before Martin’s death, the school system commended Chief Hurley for “decreasing school-related juvenile delinquency by an impressive 60 percent for the last six months of 2011.” What was actually happening was that crimes were not being reported as crimes, but instead treated as disciplinary infractions. . . .

Read the whole thing at The American Spectator. Leniency is not always mercy, and going to jail is better than getting shot.

Of course, anyone who reports this will be attacked for “blaming the victim”, or will be accused of racism. But this is important. Martin’s death is a tragedy, and a corrupt, pass the buck system in the Miami-Dade schools might have contributed, indirectly to that tragedy. But no one seems to care, certainly not the NAACP. They are too busy trying to get George Zimmerman for “civil rights violations” to care about anything else. 


Breaking Blogging News: Arrogant ass hat AKA Charles Johnson is wrong, AGAIN

I do not know Johnson personally, but he exemplifies everything I hate about the Left. Intellectual cowardice, arrogance steeped in closed-mindedness, and the inability to see just how much of a bigot he is. So, I take joy, at least a little in watching Stacy McCain mock CJ, who, I remind y’all, USED to be somebody

Really, I should feel guilty for so thoroughly enjoying these predictable outbreaks of Johnsonian idiocy. In case you didn’t notice, the terrorist attack in London this week was not committed by radical Belgians or militant creationists or any of the other overblown right-wing bogeymen that occupy the demented mind of Jazzy McPonytail.

No, it was Michael Olumide Adebolajo.

Damn that Pamela Geller!


It’s so unfair for her to be right and popular and successful, while CJ is a wrong, unpopular failure. But nevertheless, his downward spiral into humilation and obscurity continues.

It was reported that Adebolajo, who is not Belgian, was associated with radical leader Anjem Choudary, but before this connection could be fully confirmed, Charles Johnson got into a hilarious dispute with his henchperson Killgore Trout over the definition of “affiliated.”


Except when he is, which is pretty much every day now, and I almost feel guilty for enjoying it so much.

Almost, I said . . .


From the some religions are more equal than others department

Comes a story from Michigan, where an ad that questions the existence of God is OK, but an ad questioning the existence of Muhammed, not so much. Zion’s Trumpet has it

This ad ran on Detroit SMART buses here


Crains Business wrote this:

While the ads may offend some, SMART’s Beth Dryden tells Shea they met the system guidelines and were vetted by their legal department.

March 3, Crain’s: Additionally, because the ads are what SMART considers “viewpoint-neutral content” the agency can’t reject them, she said. That’s because a government agency cannot censor such content, which is protected by the First Amendment.

Got that? Good.We submitted the ad below to this same transit agency in Detroit/Dearborn, SMART, and we were DENIED. This ad was rejected:


Here’s what SMART said:

The proposed advertisement submitted by Pamela Geller has been reviewed under SMART’s content policy. SMART, consistent with its review process, also reviewed the referred-to website:thetruthaboutmuhammed.com.  Consistent with its policy, with the Sixth Circuit opinion in AFDI v SMART, and consistent with other law, SMART declines to post the advertisement.

Our message parallels the atheist ads. Since they were accepted, I modeled this ad after theirs, to see if the freedom of speech applied to criticism of Islam in our cowardly and politically correct age. This is the same government agency that refused to run our “Leaving Islam?” ads that were designed to help Muslim girls who wanted to lead more Western lives escape dangerous devout households. SMART refused. My legal team, David Yerushalmi and Robert Muise of the American Freedom Law Centerand I sued. We won. They appealed to the 6th circuit court (a sharia-sensitive court). The Sixth Circuit said that the ad was a political ad — SMART doesn’t run political ads. So in my quest to fight on, I wanted to point out their hypocrisy as we go back to court. This rejection does just that.  We fight on.

You know, I could call James Wolcott a Festering Blob of Stupidity, but that would just be redundant

I suppose I could also call Wolcott the most incessantly boring writer of the 21st century, but, again, that would be redundantly redundant. So, I will just call him Mr. Irrelevant instead.Of course, right now, you are likely scratching your head and wondering who in the Hell James Wolcott is. I will allow Stacy McCain to explain

Pamela Geller’s commentary about Sandra Fluke has caused a conniption on the part of — you guessed, didn’t you?Charles Johnson. Mr. Jazzy McBikeshorts then got into a Twitter colloquy with the infamously boring James Wolcott, who decided to bring my name into it. A commenter informed me about this, prompting my Twitter reply:

News Flash: James Wolcott, who for years has had a Vanity Fair column nobody reads, now has a Twitter account nobody follows.

Because you have probably never heard of James Wolcott, it is necessary to explain that he is a cadaverous-looking college dropout who spent years as an unpopular media critic at the Village Voice before becoming an unpopular columnist at Vanity Fair. His knowledge of politics is extremely limited, as I noted in April 2008:

If James Wolcott is being paid by the word, his 3,700-word screed in the June issue of Vanity Fair is the Crime of the Century. The article is presented as describing the “vicious Clinton-versus-Obama rupture at Daily Kos” and thus an analysis of “a party-wide split” among Democrats, but it’s really nothing of the kind. In fact, it’s nothing at all. There is no reporting and very little that could be called research. Just massive paragraph after paragraph of florid prose.

So far as anyone can tell, Wolcott never ventures outside Manhattan and can’t be bothered to do any actual reporting. He has attempted to remain “relevant” by adding a blog that nobody reads to his duties at Vanity Fair, whose publisher apparently hired him as a favor to Wolcott’s wife, an editor for the magazine.

Wolcott’s most memorable contribution to the online world was a 2004 post in which he cheered for killer hurricanes — “Mother Nature’s fist of fury, Gaia’s stern rebuke” – to hit America, and thereby inadvertently helped re-elect President Bush

Last year, Wolcott somehow inveigled Doubleday into publishing his memoir. Nobody read that either, mainly because the author is so notoriously dull, but perhaps also because readers had been warned via a New York Times review that Wolcott “devotes 50 genuflecting pages” of his 258-page memoir to film critic Pauline Kael.

No, I’m not kidding. Really.

Yes, I think that about covers it, and I got to repost Stacy’s shot at Charles “Mr. Jazzy McBikeshorts” Johnson. Of course, you likely have never heard of Charles Johnson either have you? Well, he is a lot like Wolcott, only not as boring. Not that Johnson is not boring, he is, but Wolcott is to boring what Janet Reno was to homely. As Bill Quick notes today

Sitting around shoving red-hot railroad spikes up my nose would be more fun than blogging about James Wolcott. Or Charles Johnson. In fact, the only thing I can think of that would be less fun than blogging about this pair of tools would be being forced to read their dreck.


Another day, another example of how wacky the Left is

The term formerly known as “blind spot” is now to be known as “blank spot” according to the Babbleloons, as in;

“Such ‘blank spots’ [Editor’s note: a substitute phrase for the ableist term ‘blind spots’] are gaps in knowledge resulting from our social location. Therefore, this assignment challenges us to think critically about our blank spots, or the things we have been conditioned not to understand.”

Ableists? Good grief, is there any group of people the Left will not try to make into a victim group? Is there no limit to their victim pimping? Now people who have no “handicaps” are bad, oppressive bigots, or Ableists! I think we have our first Marxist Moron of 2012.

Attack of the Right Wing Bikinis?

As you might expect, RS McCain is behind this, because, you know,Conservative women are not supposed to be THAT HOT!

Evidently taking their cue from the Washington Post, now the British Guardian has decided that the most newsworthy thing about conservative blogger Pamela Geller is that she has been seen in public in a swimsuit:

Pamela Geller is on a mission to save the free world and she’s doing it, on this occasion, in a bikini as she writhes around in the sea.
“Here I am in my chador, my burka,”
Geller jokes to the camera in one of a string of video blogs campaigning against Islamic “world domination” shortly before kicking back in the waves.

The video is from August 2006 and out of all that Geller has done in the ensuing four years — including authoring The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America with her frequent collaborator, Robert Spencer — evidently nothing lends itself so easily to a feature lede as her bikini moment.

Don’t you just love how the media treats women?
