Dr. Wafa Sultan: Exposing the Lies of Islam
By Barbara J.
An amazing and courageous Arab woman has gotten
little attention here in the
, even though this woman is now an American.
But Dr. Wafa Sultan got plenty of attention in the
when she appeared on Al Jazeera a few weeks ago.
Dr. Sultan did the unthinkable:
She appeared on Arab television and condemned Islam.
She was there to “debate” not one, but two Islamic scholars.
One was an Egyptian professor of religious studies identified as
Dr. Ibrahim al-Khouli and the other was an unidentified Algerian cleric.
They were obviously so furious at this woman that both men quickly
labeled her a “heretic.” Viewers
who see the segments now posted on the Internet will observe one man
waving his arms around in frustration and the other nervously shuffling
papers as though he is searching for an answer to her charges but can’t
seem to find it.
The very fact that a woman dared to speak out against
Islam was insult enough for them, but when she left them speechless with
her undeniable logic, their anger and hatred came through like a tidal
wave. The refusal to respond
to her charges spoke volumes.
Dr. Sultan was born to devout Muslim parents and
. She herself was a practicing
Muslim until she experienced a life-changing event as she was working
towards her medical degree at the
. Masked gunmen entered her
classroom and as they shouted, “God is Great!” they riddled her
professor’s body with bullets. It
was that day that she began to question Islam and its claim that it is a
religion of peace.
Dr. Sultan did what Muslims are forbidden to do:
She began to question the teachings of Islam, Mohammed, and the
Quran. Once a Muslim begins to
question Islam it can be like a dam bursting and threats from Islam cannot
hold it back. This onslaught
of questions is what Islamic leaders fear.
Once unleashed, this desire for answers about Islam’s teachings
cannot be put aside and they cannot be answered. The
threat of death and eternal hell is Islam’s only of control over the
Within Islam, there is no greater sin than to
question the teachings of Islam or Mohammed, and to do so is considered
heresy and blasphemy and is punishable by death.
Dr. Sultan is now a marked woman and no one is more aware of this
than she. She now receives
daily death threats but takes them all in stride.
She is a woman at peace with her decision to speak out.
As she put forth one accusation after another, the
two Islamic scholars had no answers. Their
only response was that they didn’t have to respond to her because she
was blaspheming Islam.
There is no logical response the two Islamic
religious leaders could have given when a strong and defiant Dr. Sultan
tore into them with statements such as this:
“The Jews have come from the tragedy and forced the world to
respect them, with their knowledge, not with their terror; with their
work, not with their crying and yelling.
We have not seen a single Jew blow himself up in a German
restaurant. We have not seen a single Jew destroy a church. We have not
seen a single Jew protest by killing people."
Dr. Sultan finished her opening salvo with: "Only
the Muslims defend their beliefs by burning down churches, killing people
and destroying embassies. This path will not yield any results. The
Muslims must ask themselves what they can do for humankind, before they
demand that humankind respect them."
