Listen to Me: Islam Does Not Command War Against Jews

Let me clarify these misconceptions about Islam so that there is no excuse for warmongers and those who wish to shed oceans of blood.
Turkish political and religious commentator Sinem Tezyapar.

Turkish political and religious commentator Sinem Tezyapar.

In an op. ed. piece for the Jewish Press, I cited from the Qur’an to show that war is an exceptional matter for Muslims, an unwanted obligation to be fulfilled in limited circumstances, and for defensive purposes only.

In response, I’ve been denounced and accused of being a Trojan horse, the wolf trying to devour Little Red Riding Hood, of not being a Muslim or being the worst kind of liar, misguided, deceiver, of practicing taqiyya, of disseminating propaganda with the intention of deceiving Israelis & Westerners, of using jihadist tactics in disguise, etc.

The most moderate reaction has been that I am young, naive… and don’t know my religion and the real world.

Despite the criticism, I stand behind my words, and I say further that Hamas or any other Islamic group that uses violence against civilians is doing wrong according to the Qur’an and that Jews, Christians, and Muslims must and can live co-exist together in harmony and peace. The reactions to my statements have been along the following lines: “What about the jihad verses in Qur’an? What about taqiyyah? What about abrogation of the verses which counsel peace?”

Let me clarify these misconceptions about Islam so that there is no excuse for warmongers and those who wish to shed oceans of blood.

War and violence in the Holy Books - Admittedly, there are commandments about war in the Qur’an, and those verses pertain to self-defense. The Tanakh and the Gospel also contain provisions about war and violence, and there are verses full of killing, especially in the Torah. The passages about war in those are, just as with the Qur’an, in regard to self-defense. The Torah and the Gospel command peace and love, and contain commandments about love and affection too. A person of love will interpret that in one way, and a cruel person in another. One can interpret it truly if one looks at it sincerely. For instance the Gospel speaks of blood up to the manes of the horses; it speaks of nobody being saved apart from 144,000 Jews. These are actually metaphorical and must be elucidated within the general tone of the Gospel, which is one of love and affection prevailing. But if someone insists on interpreting it in terms of violence, if he adds additional things to it out of his own mind, then a climate of violence will of course ensue. But a real Jew or a real Christian would never murder innocent people simply because there exists verses regarding killings in their Holy Books. In the same way, people who will look at Islam and the Qur’an through the eyes of love will not come up with violent interpretations.

Dictators against Prophets’ divine message - Let us not forget that the Prophet Mohammed was a prophet who sought to spread the pure faith of the Prophet Abraham, which is faith in God, the One and Only and ascribing no equals to Him, in a pagan society which had been dominated by idol worship. Like many prophets whose names appear in the Tanakh, the Prophet Mohammad has been commissioned for transmitting the message of God. It was impossible for the prophets to make any concessions on this, and they carried the true message, even at the cost of their own lives, to the most extreme leaders of their times and the most perverse communities. Conveying this message sometimes meant to oppose the tyrant Nimrod, as in the case of the Prophet Abraham, and sometimes to oppose dictators such as Pharaoh, as with the Prophet Moses. At all such times, believers found opposition from people who sought to take their lives. Despite circumstances where no one enjoyed freedom of expression, all the prophets communicated God’s message without regard to the cost. And this is no different in Islam as well.

War (qital) and jihad are not the same - The basic claim of the accusations and reactions trying to portray Islam as violent -God forbid- is that there are verses about jihad in the Qur’an and that these speak of killing. First and foremost, jihad and war are entirely different concepts: Jihad is not synonymous with holy war, as some misguided people think. Jihad means rather exertion, which is to strive, to make effort toward some object identified to the will of God as revealed in the Qur’an. Some worthy objects of jihad include strife against one’s egoistic passions, or to make an intellectual challenge against irreligion, radicalism or fanaticism. One convinces people with scientific and intellectual evidence. To expose the signs of God’s existence, to convey His revelation, to explain the malice of atheistic ideologies etc… These are the legitimate objects of the “jihad” for a Muslim, not beating someone about the head, killing someone or forcing a person to embrace Islam as an act of coercion.

  1. Sorry but I have read the Quran and it not only requires war – but demands GENOCIDE. Yes WAR and HOLY WAR are to very different words and Jihad is much worse than mere Qital.

    There is no more racist – vile – and hateful book ever written on the planet. It makes Mein Kampf look like a kindergarden reader in comparison.

    I just don't think a majority of Muslims, even after reading this, will be convinced and they are the ones who most need convincing. My impression is that among the majority of the world's Muslims, certainly among most Egyptians, Pakistanis, Indonesians, Turks, Muslim Bosnians, Muslim Nigerians and Syrians, that Israel is nothing more than a murderous state that needs to be eliminated and that the they need to be at constant war with Jews. That is what most Muslims from these nations seem to believe and changing their minds seems to be impossible.

  6. Daniel Greenfield says:

    While your call for building bridges is laudable, building it on a basis of denial of what most Muslims actually practice and believe does not accomplish anything.

    Mohammed's wars against Jews were not defensive, and they culminated in the expulsion of Jews from the region.

    The defining approach is still, "O yes who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. And whoso among you takes them for friends is indeed one of them. Verily, Allah guides not the unjust people." Quran 5:51.

    And the Hadiths make all that even clearer.

  7. Throughout the 13 years they lived in Mecca our Prophet (saas) and the Companions were subjected to terrible duress, attacks and slanders; they were forced to leave their homes and threatened with death. But they never resorted to violence despite all this aggression and oppression. When the oppression in Mecca increased, they migrated to Medina, and during the Medina period they only engaged in wars that were unavoidable and for defensive purposes. For example, the Battle of Badr began when the Meccan pagans gathered their armies and attacked the Muslims, intending to martyr them. At Hendek the Muslim erected obstacles around the city in order to protect themselves, and the fighting was purely defensive. In short, the wars in the past were all unavoidable and defensive, the result of direct and ferocious attacks by pagans. None was an offensive war.

  8. Unjustified killing is a sin in Islam… if someone kills another person–unless it is in retaliation for someone else or for causing corruption in the earth–it is as if he had murdered all mankind. And if anyone gives life to another person, it is as if he had given life to all mankind. Our Messengers came to them with Clear Signs but even after that many of them committed outrages in the earth. (Surat al-Ma’ida, 32).
    (Believers are) those who do not call on any other god together with Allah and do not kill anyone Allah has made inviolate, except with the right to do so, and do not fornicate; anyone who does that will receive an evil punishment. (Surat al-Furqan, 68).

  9. Daniel Greenfield says:

    Regarding your quote of Qur’an, 4:91, you cut off the first part of the verse. So why don't we look at the full verse in the Sahih International translation.

    "You will find others who wish to obtain security from you and [to] obtain security from their people. Every time they are returned to [the influence of] disbelief, they fall back into it. So if they do not withdraw from you or offer you peace or restrain their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you overtake them. And those – We have made for you against them a clear authorization."

  10. Daniel Greenfield says:

    As for killing as a method of propagation of Islam, see Quran 4.89.

    "They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper."

  11. Thanks for this insightful article Sinem. Some ignorant people who are unaware of the Koran are mislead about Islam requiring a sort of bloody war against any group of people. ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE AND LOVE.

  12. Prophet Mohammad (saas) was very affectionate and protective towards Christians and Jews living in the area. As Islam commands, there is no oppression in religion and everyone is free to practice their faith as long as they are respectful to others..

    “A Christian Najran delegation came to Medina at the time of the afternoon prayer and entered the Masjid-i Nabawai. Arriving when our Prophet (saas) and his people were still peforming the afternoon prayer, the Christians turned to the East and prepared to worship.SOME COMPANIONS WISHED TO PREVENT THEM WORSHIPING, BUT THE PROPHET (SAAS) COMMANDED THAT THEY BE LEFT ALONE AND PERMITTED TO WORSHIP.” (Tabarî, Ibn Kathir, Razî, Qurtubî; Surah Al‘Imran, 3/1-61; Part of these commentaries dealt with the beginning of the Surah, and some with the 61st verse, known as the mubahala verse).(Hamidullah, The Prophet of Islâm, trans.: Salih Tug, Ankara 2003, I, 920; Saricam, The Prophet Muhammad and His Universal Message, 278.)

  13. OUR PROPHET (SAAS) SPREAD OUT HIS CLOAK FOR THE NAJRAN CHRISTIANS TO SIT ON DURING THEIR VISIT.

    In addition, according to some accounts, our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) attended their weddings, visited their sick, and was generous to them. THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SAAS) EVEN SPREAD OUT HIS CLOAK SO THAT THE CHRISTIANS OF NAJRAN WHO CAME TO VISIT HIM COULD SIT ON IT.

  14. OUR PROPHET (SAAS) ROSE TO HIS FEET AS THE FUNERAL PROCESSION OF A JEW CAME PAST.

    Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:A funeral procession passed in front of us and the Prophet stood up and we too stood up. We said, “O Allah's Apostle! This is the funeral procession of a Jew.”He said, "Whenever you see a funeral procession, you should stand up." (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 23, Number 398).

  15. That's really a very good article. True Islam is the Islam revealed by God in the Qur’an and manifested by our Prophet (saas). All forms of barbarism, unnecessary acts of violence and unjust aggression are forbidden by Islam. God does not approve of wars:
    …Each time they kindle the fire of war, God extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. God does not love corrupters. (Qur’an, 5:64)

  16. Read AlQur'an from a non-bias translators, like the one translated by Sir Zafrullah Khan, Maulwi Sher Ali or any translations Officially published by Islam International Publications.

  17. Dan Hischar says:

    Lets" tell the WHOLE truth about jihad, which has TWO meanings.The second of which you failed to mention is the PHYSICAL struggle which calls for the destruction of the enemies of Islam!

  18. Daniel Greenfield says:

    Regarding (Qur’an, 9:6).

    Again much is left out.Let's start with 9'5.

    "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

    "And if one of the idolaters seek protection from you, grant him protection till he hears the word of Allah, then make him attain his place of safety; this is because they are a people who do not know."… till he hears the word of Allah means until he becomes a Muslim.

    Finally 9.29 gets to the point.

    "Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection."

  19. Dan Hischar says:

    That's the problem Daniel,they omit the parts that reveal Islam for what it really is.

  20. Yes it does. It also commands that you cover your hair, and not pluck your eyebrows.
    It's very easy to dismiss/ignore the unsavoury teachings of islam when you are in a position to do so.

  21. War in Islam is only for self-defense not the other way around. The Koran commands that the killing of one person is like killing all people. It is such a major haram.

  22. The term jihad means intellectual struggle; meaning preaching the word of Islam like I am doing at the moment for example.

  23. Thank you for such a provocative and informative article. For those that previously posted, just a few facts. The Holy Qur'an forbids war, with the exception of self defense, and even then it is very limited. The Jews will remain in the Holy Land til the end times, and so it is written. This is Allah's will.This messenger of peace brings the Truth, she has fulfilled Allahs, God's, Hashim's Will. The Radicals are happy to see that their twisting of the Holy Qur'an divides us. We are together, in our Search for peace.

  24. Liad Bar-el says:

    You, Sinem Tezyapar and your associates, need to first convience your brothers and sisters as well as all of your leaders about your message of peace in place of their hate before you come to us here in Israel asking us to give away our land to you on a promise of what you think the Quran states. To date, none of us here in Israel has seen anything from the Muslim world to the likes of what you have stated.

  25. Nothing is impossible Ev Max. At the time it was thought that it was impossible for Mehmed the Conquerer to take Constantinople but he was successful. This bigoted mindset can only be changed through education; and this education can come from such articles and TV shows and publishing blogs that can reach millions of internet users and discussing and talking with each other, explaining that we don't need to fear one another and we can really live in peace. It is very possible indeed.

  26. Moe Winters says:

    It's all very well and good to interpret things in a more peaceful way, and without such fair and decent minded people, like you Sinem, the situation in the Middle East and the world over, would be far worse.. but where is the strength from the believers of the "Peaceful" Islam to combat the hoards and hoards of the un-peaceful "Jihadists" (as is people that believe 'holy war' in Islam means to eradicate all others)? When it comes to crunch time, I fail to see real peace lovers and moderates in the Islamic world unifying and mobilizing themselves to be able to repel the people who are armed to the teeth with deadly modernized weaponry screaming "Allahu Akhbar" while burning the flags of Western countries (not limited to the flags of the USA and Israel, even though they are most common)(also, the situation of Iran comes to mind where the Persian people are literally unarmed and hostage to the tyrannical Ayatollah regime). Seems to me the moderates, like you Sinem, need to put your words into much stronger actions or how can you expect people to believe in your peaceful vision. Where is the necessary change from the inside? The West can't be expected to face the very real and menacing actions of the large number of Islamists that are organized militarily and politically in the world without their being terribly messy consequences. Where are these masses of Muslim moderates who espouse your peaceful vision and will firmly stand and really fight against these armies of people that quite openly don't agree with your nice interpretation?? Where are they? We need them sorely…

  27. Actually the examples you just gave are not stated in the Koran. In Islam men and women are equal and equally treated so. Islam is a very modern religion which also encourages art and science.

  28. But the most important thing is we Muslims we love the People of the Book, because we believe in the same God, we pray to the same God and we are all children of Adam and Eve. I have many beloved Christian and Jewish friends and I believe that we can and will live in peace with one another.

  29. Thank you, Brother Liad, for the thoughtful comment. You will see Peace in our Time. The Turkish-Muslim Union is being formed. Hamas, Hezbollah, and their sponsor will be held accountable for it's actions. In the Ottoman times, the Jews were protected. It will happen again. We are fighting the same battle, against ignorance,bigotry, and hatred. In the end, Israel will stand, we will unite, and peace will prevail. insha'Allah, God Willing.

  30. You are absolutely right that we need to educate Muslims as well that People of the Book are our brothers and sisters whom we should be protective of and affective towards. There is a majority of people who feel the same here in Turkey as we do.

  31. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Sinem, Al Rassooli, an expert on the Quran, has dedicated his life to warning people of the evil of Islam. Also, for Islam to present to the public a sexually attractive woman to talk peace by exciting testosterone production which goes against every principle of Judaism distorts the mind into thinking that you are from the department of open minds when actually it is very closed. What you have said and in how it was presented in reality is putting the last nail in the coffin of religious corruption.

  32. Dan Hischar says:

    Treated equal? When was the last time a Muslim man was stoned? or had acid splashed in his face?How about a little girl that was shot in the head by a GREAT MUSLIM WARRIOR!!

  33. Oh, Ok, like that is it? Deny everything which isn't a koranic teaching. Ok, well verse 65:4 makes PAEDOPHILIA lawful, how about that one, eh?
    I've read what your hateful koran says about the people of the book, please don't bull**** me. And what it says about taking them as friends and helpers.

  34. Samia Khan says:

    Excellently written,, Yes Muslims and Jews should be realistic in their belief of being sincere. That they should try and think where we stand at loss. WE are all at loss how to make peace, but even one person who redeem the thought is most precious human , stand up for peace n love, study history and make truth stand out.

  35. Sinem, perhaps the clerics are not emphasizing this enough to their followers. How do you deliver this message in a clear way to the Moslems?

  36. Görkem Erdoğan Maskha'Allah. Very good Sister!!!!

  37. Can you publish and distribute this message to those who are being bombarded with the opposite propaganda by Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Hisbollah, and other organization, who are preaching violence to their followers?

  38. I will write how… in another article God willing. I will explain the vision that we believe will bring solution. But they will not listen to this message at the moment. Not this way…

  39. Dan Hischar Brother Dan Hischar I of course agree with you that such actions applied by bigots/radicals are extremely violent and should be abandoned and the people responsible for such actions should be legally persecuted. However the examples you give do not belong to Islam; they are not stated in the Koran. Islam has one book and one book only. Such actions I believe are traditionally borrowed from other cultures and they don't represent a true devout Muslim.

  40. So what about verse 65:4? Please answer, if you avoid the issue I'll take your silence as consent.
    What about your instruction to not take people of the book as friends and helpers unless it be to guard yourselves against them?

  41. Aziz Hoca says:

    In Quran, killing one man unfairly, unjustly is such a big sin as killing all the people in the world.

    THE VERSE:
    "For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than man slaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if be had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had: saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah's sovereignty) , but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth." (5:32).

  42. Daniel Greenfield says:

    This isn't even omitting. It's carefully cutting out the verse being quoted.

  43. Azzam Zeki says:

    masaAllah…I hope that spreads peace between Jews and Muslims.

  44. John English says:

    Obviously Sinem & Gorkem have their very own. very sanitized, version of the Qur'an. The spin (taqiyya) will all stop when Islam rules the World & have no further use for it!

  45. Liad Bar-el says:

    John English, your talk back is one of the best, concise and truthful ones on this blog. You should be working for the Department of Communications instead of Domino's.

  46. My dear Sinem, you should go and live in Gaza under Hamas rule, I am sure you will be singing a different tune about Jihad, and Muslim religion.

  47. My dear Sinem, you should go and live in Gaza under Hamas rule, I am sure you will be singing a different tune about Jihad, and Muslim religion.

  48. Sister Ofra, True Islam is a loving Faith, The Holy Qur'an speaks against the violence, as does the Torah. Hard to accept, having endured 1000 rocket attacks upon your communities before a military response, I understand. The Qur'an calls for a restrained defense. The Jewish state seems to have met that requirement. The Radicals will have no place to turn, in time. We are working to combat the ignorance, bigotry, hatred, and the hijacking of Islam to wage war. The Turkish-Islamic Union, which will likely include Israel, will cause terror groups such as the 3 in question, to become extinct. This is God's will. The Holy Qur'an states that the Jews will live in the Holy Land til the end times. The threat of force cannot compare to Gods will. Education is key. We and our Jewish brothers and sisters will prevail. This is the only viable approach insha'Allah, God Willing.

  50. Liad Bar-el says:

    I say to every Jew to not believe in Islam because our sage, the Rambam, Rabbi Mosheh Ben Maimon (Maimonides), wrote a formal didactic (teaching) letter to the Yemenite Jews in 1172 informing them that Muhammad (Islam) as well as his predecessor, Jezeus (Xtianity), are false prophets and insane.

  51. Liad Bar-el says:

    Sinem Tezyapar, you and your associates/managers, Ceylan Ozbudak, Adnan Oktar, et al, really should be making youtubes of interviews with people like Hasan Nasrallah, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and the main financier of Islam, Saudi King Abdullah Alsoud. Concentrating your efforts on the Jewish Press instead gives the impression that you’re out fishing for those who are ignorantly lost from the general consensus of religious beliefs and practices. For your organization to state that they will set up Turkey as the spiritual center for the world just throws up red flags all over the place.

  52. Brother Liad, you are a Man of great faith, it is plain to see. No one is trying for conversion, only to draw upon the similarities of the 3 books of Faith. Not to dismiss any teachings, the Status Que cannot stand. Our Jewish brothers and sisters will be out numbered 10 to 1 by Muslims before this decade is out. Regardless, The Holy Qu'ran states that the Jewish people will be in the Holy Land ( Jewish State) until the end times. No one can alter God's will. The Turkish-Islamic Union will cause peer pressure in many Positive ways. The Ottomans protected the Jews, so it shall be again. We are together Brother Laid, in what Allah, God, Hashem wants for us, Peace and unity.

  53. Thank you , Brother. I am an American Muslim that has come full circle since 9/11. I was here to witness the Attacks,the murder of 3000 innocents, spent the best years of my life in pursuit of killers, and then found Allah, our creator. I would like to invite you to visit www, buildingbridges.com. This is A9 in Istanbul. We have guest scholars and Rabbis from around the world. Many from Israel itself. You are seeing a intellectual war being waged against bigotry, ignorance, and hatred that is far more effective than any military unit I ever served with. Brother please, A9 has a long history of Scholars and Leaders, even having won a Nobel Prize for Peace. Join us, it is in our own interest that our Jewish brothers survive and Flourish. God Willing. insha'Allah.

  54. Yori Yanover says:

    I received this comment from a friend by Email:

    Reading the comments on Sinem's article, one gets the impression that most Muslims here seek peace, while many comments by non-Muslims are negative, skeptical and pessimistic.

    As a proud Zionist and an Orthodox Jew from Jerusalem, I am rather confused and sad to see this.

    Yes, I know that most vocal Islamists preach violence and hatred, but I fail to understand why some Westerners are so eager to push ALL Muslims into the radical camp.

    Do we not want to encourage peace and tolerance? Have we fallen in love with being hated and terrorized?

    Sinem is saying that the Muslim radicals that preach hatred and violence are WRONG! Do we want her to shut up and join them?
    What on earth for?

    And how do we have the CHUTZPAH to tell this Turkish intellectual that we know HER religion better than herself and her friends?

    Let's be honest – Jewish and Christian sources also have tones of war and tones of peace. But we are free to choose the right path in every historical period. So why do we reject peaceful Muslims when they insist on adopting tolernace and acceptance? What do you hope to gain from this arrogant approach?

    We should be doing the exact opposite: Encourage people of good will and embrace them. This is the only hope for a better future for all humanity!

  56. Bob Carroll says:

    Absolutely. People would rather consign themselves to a future of endless conflict that admit to themselves that their preconceptions are less than 100% true.

  57. Liad Bar-el says:

    Yori and Bob you both have a lot to learn about the two main religions in this world which are based from its inception on destroying the Jews. You both will probably not understand this but I will say it anyway. Before these religions wanted to kill us with swords and some still do; however, now they want to kill us with love. In other words they both have the same objective…..to kill us via their religion. What you read here is pure taqiyya (concealing) of their world take over by this very destruction however "sweet" and seductive it may appear. No matter what kind of spin Islam puts on it, it's all a lie and if you both think not, then it has become an illusion in your heads. You both can see for yourselves that Islam has NEVER EVER "walked the talk" when the word peace was mentioned. Peace has been ALWAYS used as deception and instructed to do so by Muhammed, so as to buy time in order to build up forces ONLY for eventual war and dominate takeover of the world.

  58. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Someone I 'know' on Twitter told me that there was an earlier Koran, but it got destroyed and it was peaceful and loving. Now I understand about abrogation – that earlier – loving – verses were abrogated in favor of violent and hateful verses. My question is: Will the real Quran please stand up?

  59. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Why are infidels throughout the world being murdered by Muslims? It doesn't really matter to us if they are 'true Muslims' or not. They are acting in the name of Islam.

  60. Alan Kardon says:

    Sinem I hope you can get your point across to the Jihadists and Hamas. You will do a great service to your people. If millions who follow Islam believe what you say than we have hope. Wishing you much success in explaining it to THEM.

  61. Angela Sessions says:

    Thank you for the enlightened article. I have always suspected your interpretation of Islam is correct, and truly wish there are more like you in the world. It would surely be a better place. Thanks again Sinem.

    yea ok, sinem and her friends seem nice and benevolent, but in the end they would certainly agree to making all nations bow to islam, which is not to be. they will be defeated and forced to leave israel in peace. the muslims are violent and are permitted to lie and steal from a non muslim, even to take "non believers" as slaves. the israelis should start to play hard ball and clear out hevron and ramallah, its israeli land. we should push the gazans into egypt and jordan and take back our boarders according to what G-d has alloted us in the torah. we might not be able to do it all right now, but soon when the Redeemer comes forth from the north.

    its a bunch of b.s. all what the mulslims what to do is fight and take over and impose their soveriegnty over others. its fine if the rest of the world wants it which is what seems to be the case as america has elected one for president a mear 10 after the twin towers episode. the israelis however dont want anymore of your crap, get off our land please and leave us in peace.

  66. Sinem Tezyapar is a very pretty woman but in her case beauty and brains don't go together.

  67. Tim Upham says:

    You know that, I know that, but tell the Jewish extremists that. The Qu'ran refers to both Jews and Christians as the People of the Book, who supplied the Scriptures. The Qu'ran will say those who violate the Sabbath is a despicable ape, not that jews are despicable apes, but only those who violate the Sabbath. An Orthodox rabbi can call you that, but how many of the Jewish extremists even go to a synagogue and follow the mitzvot of what is commanded on Shabbat?

  68. The Muslim attitude toward Jews is reflected in various verses throughout the Koran, the holy book of the Islamic faith. "They [the Children of Israel] were consigned to humiliation and wretchedness. They brought the wrath of God upon themselves, and this because they used to deny God's signs and kill His Prophets unjustly and because they disobeyed and were transgressors" (Sura 2:61). According to the Koran, the Jews try to introduce corruption (5:64), have always been disobedient (5:78), and are enemies of Allah, the Prophet and the angels (2:97­98).

    I'm sure this will all be news to the Taliban, and they will be ever so grateful and relieved to hear that they can lay down arms and take up stamp collecting.

    FYI, Jews do not refer to Abraham or Moses or David as a prophets. So referring to them in that way, especially in a Jewish publication indicates that you have appropriated Judaism without actually absorbing Judaism accurately. That's rude. Furthermore, to expect Jews to accept Islam's repurposing of Jewish figures is disturbing, regardless of your so called peaceful intentions.

    I'm not an expert on Islam but what I have learned from reading and listening to lectures is that Muslims consider Islam to be the final revelation of G-d and the goal is that Islam should rule the world, not be equal to other religions. According to the Qur'an Jews corrupted the Torah and Christians are misled by believing in the trinity and Christ's divinity, and both groups are banned to eternal hell fire unless they accept Allah and Mohammed as his prophet. Furthermore, according to Islam, since the Qur'an was a direct transmission to Mohammed by the angel Gabriel it can not be changed or modernized or interpreted according to personal whims. The Qur'an is not considered divinely inspired but the word of G-d. Islam is Islam. Sinem, it's not my place to tell you how to practice your faith, but please don't try to mislead people that what you are saying is authentic or mainstream Islam.

    I do hope that Islam can be reformed by well intentioned Muslims who prefer to live in peace and recognize the spiritual paths of other people as equally valid.

  73. In a few weeks Norway will be "Judenrein". The last 819 Jews still living in Norway are now leaving the country due to the rise of anti-Semitism.

    Thus Norway becomes the first European country in which Jews will no longer.
    live. A similar development can be observed in all the European countries.

    When one hears nowadays reports regarding the terrorist attack against Jews.
    in Bulgaria one does not know that Jews in Europe are subject to.
    anti-Semitic manifestations daily.

    The Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten reported In February 2012 about the.
    departure of Jews from the country. Anne Sender, the head of the Jewish.
    community in Norway , once said: "Many immigrants brought anti-Semitism from.
    their countries. The shame is in that nobody speaks out against them." The.
    waves of Muslim immigrants bring anti-Semitism back to Europe. A similar
    development is taking place in the neighboring country, Sweden , and in all.
    the European countries. The Muslims are the ones who drive away the Jews.

  75. Perfect piece, congratulations. But I think it also needs to emphasize that people need to open their eyes and see that thier hunger for hatred will take them nowhere. It baffles me to see that people hatefully respond to a piece calling for peace. How can they ever justify that? So I think, Sinem you need to focus on that hateful state of mind too, and maybe you can show them how to overcome their prejudices. People wake up! You were not born to hate, God created you to love.

  76. Liad Bar-el says:

    Yori, I am sure that the Sephardic Jews of Yemen thought as you back in the years of 1172 when they were loosing Jews and having great troubles. They asked the Rambam for help and he did and saved them from their troubles. The Rambam wrote a formal didactic (teaching) letter to the Yemenite Jews in 1172 informing them that Muhammad and his predecessor, Jezeus, are false prophets and insane. If someone says otherwise and makes you believe otherwise then you are right back in the same situation of 1172 but it has become worse because you are influencing many more people on an international basis with the internet.

  77. Amir Ahmad says:

    The very first muslim migration took place because the non-believers did not want muslims to preach Islam in Makkah. If the non-believers had let the muslims continue following their newly found reliigion Islam, they were afraid masses would convert to be muslims seeing the way muslims behaved so well. And the very first war Badar took place because non-believers did not want muslims to flourish in Madinah and attract more people towards Islam.

    Islam does NOT order killings of any non-muslims, unless they attack muslims. And even then there is no killing of women, oldies and children. Only fighters have to be fought against.

    I believe that if muslims demonstrate in Europe and Americas how to live peacefully and in true Islam spirit, people there will quickly convert to Islam. My persona belief is that Islam starts where humanity reaches its height. Provided the muslims live as per Allah's way as shown by the holy prophet. Mere naming themselves as Muslims, but acting against Islam is not going to bring good name to Islam and muslims.

  82. And there is no point in claiming otherwise because they have the right to live as unbelievers as God says there is no compulsion in religion. So if you don't believe in the Koran you are a nonbeliever, that is so stupid. Besides there is no God and if there was where has he been for the last 3000 years while millions have died in the name of religion. Irags killing Irags, same in Afghanistan, sorry it seems Muslims are the root of evil. Again there is no God, you just belong to a cult.

  83. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Yori Yanover, it is good that your Orthodox friend sent you this email for otherwise he would be embarrassed to publish his name after showing such ignorance of Torah and Judaism. It’s been proven that not all Orthodox raised children remain Orthodox as can be seen from your friends’ email. Granted not all of us have the time to study Torah and do what we study so that we do not lose what we have studied. Neither do we have the time and interest to study other religions and learn how they might impact our lives and those of our loved ones; so, we rely on our sages knowledge to help guide us through the many unknowns in our lives. When a sage, such as the Rambam for instance, stated that a certain man, Muhammed, is a false prophet and insane, it would behoove us to stay far away from him and his followers. Maybe we don’t have what it takes to intellectually fight against this false prophet and his followers but the Rambam does have “the CHUTZPAH to tell this Turkish intellectual that we know HER religion better than herself and her friends”. The Rambam was closer to HaShem than any one of us; so, to follow the Rambam’s advice is not “an arrogant approach” as your friend termed it but rather a very wise and humble approach.

    Your friend asked: “Have we fallen in love with being hated and terrorized?” It seems that your friend is tired of being hated and terrorized much like Olmert was tired of fighting and winning wars; so, he made sure that Israel didn’t win any more wars much like your friend would believe the Islamists than fight them so long as there is some delicious lavishly looking sex pot to give him his daily dose of ego pills and testosterone evocations during his present day male menopause stage of life.

  84. Yehuda Cohen says:

    It is forbidden in Judaism to proselytize; so why are Islamists proselytizing here on the Jewish Press?

    I wonder at the verses I always hear quoted, that the believer should not feel remorse at killing the unbeliever by thinking of them as farm animals; for instance a swine.

  92. Bernie Krumis says:

    I also wonder at the fact that most muslim countries have muslim populations in the high 90, s 99, 98 97%. So does it really matter how the rest of the population was eliminated. The end result is the elimination of non muslims. Turkey is held up as the most tolerant muslim society and has 99% muslim population.

    I've read too much about it, I've experienced second hand with a Turkish girl we knew who had to go back to Turkey and was not allowed any outside contact.
    There is no mention about the trilogy, Qur'an, Hadith and Sinar, there is no mention about the Qur'an not being set up chronologically but based on chapter length. Thus confusing the reader not knowing that there is the Qur'an of Mecca and later the Qur'an of Medina. It's irrelevant for me to say any more. I could write a whole page of 14 years of reading, dissecting and who knows what. Go to Bill Warner's page http://www.polticalislam.com! He says it all.

  97. Tzipora Markovich says:

    The Muslim leaders made the religion a tool to help them against Israel, achieving political power, control women and everything that they need for their power, did you know that by the time of Muhammad, Muslim women were allowed to wear sleeveless dresses?

  102. Thanks so much Grace for pointing that out. Yes I am living in a different planet as in planet being a metaphor for the true face of Islam, and as a woman I am saying that Islam does not oppress women but so does the wrong biased implementations of some cultures and traditions.

  103. The verse does not have the meaning you just mentioned. From your comments I can see that you have a preconceived idea about my religion without concise knowledge of it. But you see, I don't have the same feelings towards or ideas about you or your religion whatever it may be.

  104. The hope of the world is that the sacred consensus that is a part of Middle Eastern.
    tradition for thousands of years before the Torah was revealed, will eventually.
    have consensus similar to Tezyapar's.

    In the many centuries of the existence of the Torah, the New Testament, and the Koran there have always been more humanistic and more blood-thirsty interpretations.

    In part it is also about an understanding of the Creator.

    Although the Creator is above and separate from his creation, everything he has created, and everyone he has created is holy and must be loved and protected.

    Jimmy Coleman As you say, "Jews were protected." Protected implies inferiority. They were not free, equal citizens. They were forced to pay special taxes and were 2nd class citizens. If a Muslim killed a Jew the punishment was not the same as the death sentence given to the Jew who killed a Muslim. Some protection when one's very life is considered of lesser value than the life of a Muslim.

  115. James Cohn says:

    There will people who quote certain suras to prove that Islam is a genocidal cult, and those who will quote others to prove that Islam is a religion of tolerance and compassion. What disturbs me the most is that many of the professionals and intellectuals who should be advocating ecumenical dialogue (doctors, engineers, scientists, and academics), are frequently the ones to be found in the ranks of organizations such as Al-Qaeda.

  116. Golem Kokhba says:

    the author of this piece belongs to a Muslim cult whose leader wishes to rekindle the Ottoman Empire and bring all of it's former vassals back into it's control, plus he blames the "jews" for this not happening: ".
    the stage was set for a new character, a modern Turkish-Muslim man. On to this stage walked Oktar, clutching the first of his books, Judaism and Freemasons, a derivative retread of anti-Semitic clichés in the manner of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which identified Jews and the masons as the devious obstacles to the emergence of a new, powerful Turkish-Muslim nation. “The principal mission of Jews and Freemasons in Turkey,” Oktar wrote, “was to erode the spiritual, religious, and moral values of the Turkish people and make them like animals.”.

  128. Muhammeds war (peace be upon him)??

    He saved the Jews, and saved all the believers from the pagans. Some unbelieving Jews, or those with doubts, embraced the pagans for better positions in Mecca and around, and broke the agreements they had made with the Muhammed (peace be upon him).

    The verse you refer to, by the translation as it is, refers, not to take Jews or Christians as "Our Leaders" and of course we won't. If Im a Muslim, Ill listen to my leaders and my Prophet, and of course follow the Quran. We embrace all Christians and Jews, who are sincere in their belief.

    "Say : O ye that reject Faith!
    I worship not that which ye worship,
    Nor will ye worship that which I worship.
    And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship,
    Nor will ye worship that which I worship.
    To you be your Way, and to me mine".
    Quran 109:1-6

    True democracy it is! And absolutely no harming others with other beliefs.

    There is also no compulsion in faith, only this verse eradicates all the lies and misinterpretations of killing others.

    "There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing". Quran 2:256

    Please read the entire Quran without prejudices and with an open mind. The verse you refer to, 5:14 and 5:64 are talking about, the first one, about the Christians who at the time of Isa, Jesus (peace be upon him) or after his time, who, changed the Holy Bible, such as The King James Verison etc.

    The second part, talks about the Jews and Christians at the time of the Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) who claimed Allah (God) was poor, for not providing enough or whatever they saw as enough richness to the Prophet (peace be upon him) The verse, teaches us to stay away from materialism fall in love with it, due to the fact that it is only shortly, for a while, and that we shall all die within a short time on this planet.

    What about;

    4:86
    And when you are greeted with a greeting, greet [in return] with one better than it or [at least] return it [in a like manner]. Indeed, Allah is ever, over all things, an Accountant.

    4:87
    Allah – there is no deity except Him. He will surely assemble you for [account on] the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt. And who is more truthful than Allah in statement.

    and finally;

    4:88
    What is [the matter] with you [that you are] two groups concerning the hypocrites, while Allah has made them fall back [into error and disbelief] for what they earned. Do you wish to guide those whom Allah has sent astray? And he whom Allah sends astray – never will you find for him a way [of guidance].

    The second part, talks about the Jews and Christians at the time of the Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) who claimed Allah (God) was poor, for not providing enough or whatever they saw as enough richness to the Prophet (peace be upon him) The verse, teaches us to stay away from materialism fall in love with it, due to the fact that it is only shortly, for a while, and that we shall all die within a short time on this planet.

  132. Reply to your misconceptions once again : )

    9:5 Its a Mercy from Allah to disbelievers as well. Refers to the time of Prophet (peace be upon him) disbelievers, mostly Arab pagans at that time broke their agreements, but Allah clearly says, if they repent, let them go….

    9:29 same refers to the disbelievers at the time of Prophet (peace be upon him) who broke their agreement.

    Why don't you take 9:27 as an example for those who chose/choose to repent;

    "Then Allah will accept repentance after that for whom He wills; and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful." Quran 9:27

    You are way to ignorant my friend, and surely, there seems to be only a wish for war and hate in your statements. May Allah guide you straight

  133. Extremist Jews are actually known for stoning their women. Its an ancient aethist-jewish tradition, please have your facts straight.

    And Robin,

    Nowhere in the Quran is it stated for women to have headscarfs nor pluck their eyebwrow… big lie and ignorant statement. Sorry

  134. Liad Bar-el

    Dear sir,

    I think you are indoctrinated with hate and full of ignorant teachings. What ever it might be, I am in great doubt that you know the love of God. But, even if so, then, I wish you the best and pray for your wellbeing. Reading your pessimistic statements and false accusations is merely a stomach-killer.

    My grandmothers and fathers, died, destroying railways in Kosovo and Albania, Albania, the only recognized country (even if small) by the State of Israel and civic movements to have deported 0% Jews. I take your statements as an insult to me, and them, may they rest in peace.

    I fought and experienced the genocide in Kosovo, and we never, ever, killed any civilians nor did we massacre, urinate on corps, or deceived people into massgraves. Serbs who surrendered, we helped with clothing and passports to get them to Italy in order not to get killed by their one governmental institutions and paramilitary groups.

    Turkey today, as a pure Muslim country, is the only one, who has installed a defense missile system, solely, to protect Israel and its population, due to the fact, that they are our brothers and sisters in faith. Turkey has everything to lose on this project, but has chosen to follow the teachings of the Quran and the recommandations of our Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him).

    I will still protect, Jews, Christians and Muslims, and all others, from ignorant, hateful, people, and strive i nthe best way possible to achieve the Pleasure of Allah till my lest breath.

    I suggest you do the same…

  136. Israel's jihad is mine | Qanta Ahmed | Ops & Blogs | The Times of Larry Israel.

    By: Dr Qanta Ahmed is Associate Professor of Medicine at the State University of New York (Stony Brook)….

    As Israel considers building a new fence to contain the Syrian conflict to the north, which fences can keep out Hamas’s even more lethal ideologies? While Gaza and the Muslim Arab world continue to claim victory in the recent Israel-Hamas conflict, for the sane observers among us, there is only ever defeat – the defeat of morality in the desecration of a great religion. While most Muslims laud Hamas and scorn Israel, for me, an observing Muslim, Israel’s war against Hamas remains my struggle – my jihad.

    Hi Edin Luan Limani,
    Your interpretation of suras 5:14 and 5:64 would be Ok were it not for the phrase "until the Day of Resurrection".Sura 5:15 says:

    "People of the Book, now there has come to you Our Messenger(Muhammad), making clear to you many things you have been concealing of the Book, and effacing many things. There has come to you from God a light, and a Book Manifest(the Quran)"

    Then in 5:17 it says:

    "They are unbelievers who say, 'God is the Messiah, Mary's son.'"(that means CHRISTIANS)

    It is obvious 5:17 is talking about Christians in general in Muhammad's time so there is no reason to think 5:14 is not a general curse on Christians for centuries to come,that is CHRISTIANOPHOBIA.Here is WHY:

    BECAUSE 5:18 says:

    "Say the Jews and CHRISTIANS, 'We are the sons of God, and His beloved ones.' Say: 'Why then does He CHASTISES YOU FOR YOUR SINS? "

    WHAT PUNISHMENT does 5:18 refer to,regarding the CHRISTIANS?It refers to the CURSE on CHRISTIANS in 5:14 UNTIL the DAY of JUDGEMENT.Is that ok?No.

    Uhhh no one answered my question, Okay, can someone please explain to me this verse, maybe I missed the 'peaceful' message⇨ “the last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him.”.. doesn't sound to peaceful does it? Also didn't Mohammed molest a 9 year old baby? Didn't he murder? Steal? Rape? Sorry people, but Islam us untrue. Yeah it may be a monotheistic religion but itis untrue

  141. Asher Ugaz says:

    Well, Jews didn't accept him as a prophet because what was true in Mohammed's message at the beginning of his religion was NOT NEW. It had been said before, and what was new was not true. Mohammed's response to the rejection of him is obviously in the Koran. So yeah Mohamed was a fake prophet and Islam although monotheistic it is Untrue, auuntrue 'religion '

  142. Peace;

    You are now getting into another discussion, but I'll try to answer you by my best knowledge, God Willing.

    We are talking about pure Monotheism, and surely, nothing and nobody can and should associate anything or anyone to God, The King of all Kings, the Creator of all heavens.

    Allah states clearly; that there are among the people of the book who believe and act righteously and they will have their reward with their Lord. Conclusively, being a sincere Christian or Jew means being a sincere Muslim, which by the phonology of the word means "submitting 100% to God's Will"

    (And there are, certainly, among the People of the Scripture, those who believe in Allah and in that which has been revealed to you, and in that which has been revealed to them, humbling themselves before Allah) (3:199).

    (Verily, those who were given knowledge before it, when it is recited to them, fall down on their faces in humble prostration. And they say: "Glory be to our Lord! Truly, the promise of our Lord must be fulfilled.'') (17:107-108)

    This is why we believe in all Scriptures sent before, only the original parts, not the parts changed by hands of men, may they be from Torah or the Bible. People who changed these, are not believers, they changed it for worldly interests.

    (And you will find the nearest in love to the believers those who say: "We are Christians. '') Meaning pure, sincere believers. There are Christians in Kosovo where Im from and Bosnia, who pray five time a day, they are called Bogomils, meaning, God-Worshiping people.

    (And when they hear evil vain talk, they withdraw from it) meaning, they do not mix with the people who indulge in such talk, rather they do as Allah says:

    (and if they pass by some evil vain talk, they pass by it with dignity) (25:72).

    And most importantly;

    "Not all of them are alike: of the People of the book are a portion that stand (for the right); they rehearse the signs of Allah all night long and then prostrate themselves in adoration.
    They believe in Allah and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong; and they (hasten in emulation) in (all) good works; they are in the ranks of the righteous.
    Of the good that they do nothing will be rejected of them; for Allah knoweth well those that do right.
    Those who reject faith neither their possessions nor their (numerous) progeny will avail them aught against Allah; they will be companions of the fire dwelling therein (for ever).
    What they spend in the life of this (material) world may be likened to a wind which brings a nipping frost: it strikes and destroys the harvest of men who have wronged their own souls; it is not Allah that hath wronged them but they wrong themselves.
    Quran 3:113-117

    Peace be with you and all others,

    We are striving for Peace as our Prophet (peace be upon him) not war and destruction.

  143. May God have mercy on you,

    It is not a verse you are referring to!
    It is a FALSE hadith, fabricated, by enemies of Islam and God, to make Islam look bad, obviously.

    Muhammed (Peace be upon him) did not molest anyone, may God have mercy on your soul, Aisha, was 14 and did not get in the household until later age, and for the info, she is one of the greats scholars of the authentic time, because of her young age, she memorized everything, or at least the maximum she could, on Prophets (peace be upon him) sayings and teachings.

    You have a lot to read and learn, don't just psit out a lot of nonsense before you read, please.

    Peace to you,

    By the way, don't tell me what to do :)

  159. hateful koran 24:31 And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils (wal yathribna bikhumurihinna) over their bosoms (ala juyoubihinna) and not display their beauty except to their husbands their fathers their husbands' fathers their sons their husbands' sons their brothers or their brothers' sons or their sisters' sons or their women or the slaves whom their right hands possess or male servants free of physical needs or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! turn ye all together towards Allah that ye may attain Bliss.

    hateful koran 33: 53 O ye who Believe! enter not the Prophet's houses until leave is given you for a meal (and then) not (so early as) to wait for its preparation: but when ye are invited enter; and when ye have taken your meal disperse without seeking familiar talk. Such (behavior) annoys the Prophet: He is ashamed to dismiss you but Allah is not ashamed (to tell you) the truth. And when ye ask (his ladies) for anything ye want ask them from before a screen/ (Hijabi) that makes for greater purity for your hearts and for theirs. Nor is it right for you that ye should annoy Allah's Apostle or that ye should marry his widows after him at any time. Truly such a thing is in Allah's sight an enormity.

    When you read these verses, it becomes obvious that the paedophile mohammed merely used his allah to attain his own desires.

  160. Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.815 Narrated byAbdullah
    Allah has cursed those women who practise tattooing and those who get themselves tattooed, and those who remove their face hairs, and those who create a space between their teeth artificially to look beautiful, and such women as change the features created by Allah. Why then should I not curse those whom the Prophet has cursed? And that is in Allah's Book, i.e. His Saying: "And what the Apostle gives you take it and what he forbids you abstain (from it)." (59.7)

    This cult and its good-will bimbo ambassadors operate on several levels:

    1) Promote Turkey as the dominant power broker in the Middle East and Muslim world, with a subordinate role for Israel in a Neo-Ottoman Turkish Union

    2) Wage a campaign of propaganda and lies against the Theory of Evolution and Atheism, since reason, science, and secularism are the greatest threats to Islam and religion in general

    3) Defame secular Zionism and distort the established definition of Zionism to pander and appeal to Islamists, Leftists, anti-Zionists, anti-Semites, and conspiracy theorists

    These are just the dangers and threats that are readily visible. More digging and scrutiny will eventually reveal the true goal and mission of this cult with respect to Jews and Israel. For the time being, I am buying nothing that's written by this cult and as long as its representatives just talk the good talk and reject open criticism of their anti-Israel prime minister, they have zero credibility in any intellectually honest discussion of the Middle East conflict.

As I said earlier, if Sinem or one of the other journalist girls from Turkey wants to help, they should help us fight the bad Germans, I mean the bad Moslems. If they are sincere they'll stop making excuses for their fellow Moslems and disavow them.
