is not Insult
Muslim Terrorists Cow the UK
Publisher to Apologize
By: Ali Sina
November 10th the Muslim
Public Affair Committee, MPAC, The CAIR’s counterpart in UK published
an angry letter, condemning the publisher Amber Books of UK of
blasphemy. The furor is over a book called The
of Punishment that Amber Books has published recently.
The book is not about Islam at all. Their
site explains: '"The History of Punishment" offers a complete view
of this fascinating subject, beginning with the laws and punishments
of the ancient Mesopotamians and the Code of Hammurabi, and coming
right up to date with present-day practices, including imprisonment,
corporal punishment and the death penalty. Covering both legal codes
and their accompanying punishments, this book includes chapters on
ancient methods of punishments, such as Biblical punishments, Roman
punishments and Sharia Law.”
So, why the Muslims are fuming? It is
because that book contains this picture of Muhammad surrounded with
MPAC asks the Muslims to complain to the
publishers, making the following points:
Muslims it is very important never to make any pictorial
representations of the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The
publication of the illustration on page 36 of 'The History of
Punishment' by Lewis Lyons is therefore very upsetting to Muslims.
illustration is particularly offensive because it shows the
prophet Muhammad (pbuh) surrounded by naked women, thereby
characterising him as a lecherous womanizer. This nudity is also
especially hurtful because Islam teaches that women should dress
modestly in public.
image should therefore be removed from the publication
immediately. Please could you inform me of your actions on this
I think we should write to the publishers
and thank them for the picture. Muslims are too sensitive about their
religion and ready to riot and kill anyone who in their view
makes mockery of their faith, while they constantly mock other
The remedy to that is not silence but to desensitize them with a
barrage of articles that unveils Islam. As for mocking Islam it is
enough to quote a hadith or a verse from the Quran. These books
do a fairly good job in making Islam look ridiculous and asinine.
The more people publish articles unveiling
Islam and print scandalous pictures of Muhammad the sooner Muslims
will realize that they cannot keep the world silent through whining,
playing victims, threatening and hooliganism.
If people are allowed to make
fun of Jesus why no one should be allowed to make fun of Muhammad?
Making fun of Jesus and his agony and
crucifixion may be distasteful; however painting Muhammad having orgy
with his numerous young wives is depicting the truth. Why should truth
offend the Muslims?
My question to Muslims is why the fact
that Muhammad had sex with a multitude of women, some his wives, some
his maids, some his right hand possessions (captives of war) and some his concubines does not
offend you but mentioning it is offensive to you?
Why the fact that Muhammad assassinated
his opponents, massacred his prisoners of war, had sex with a
9-year-old child, raided and looted merchant caravans, invaded unarmed
civilians and poor villagers does not hurt the Muslims' sensibility but talking about them does?
Instead of being offended, may be the
Muslims would do a favor to themselves to ponder upon the following
hadith and ask themselves; doesn’t this make Muhammad a lecherous
Vol.7 Book.62 Number.6
Narrated Anas: The Prophet used to go round (have sexual relations
with) all his wives in one night, and he had nine wives.
The truth is however that Muhammad was not
a supper sexual. At his old age, he probably was impotent. But this
does not mean that he did not have sexual thoughts and sexual
He loved to fondle his young wives and play with them when they were
Vol.1 Book.6, Number.299
'Aisha said: "Whenever Allah's
Apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he
used to order her to put on an Izar (dress worn below the waist) and start fondling her." 'Aisha
added, "None of you could control his sexual desires as the
May be he was not very much in control.
May be he just couldn't do it. In fact it is very likely that he could
not have sex with his wives. He was too old. How come, despite all
that fondling and "going round" all the night none of his young
wives and concubines bore him any child? At that time there were no birth control
devices and Muhammad longed to have a son. Muhamamd had four grown up
daughters from his first Marriage with Khadijah. But none from his
younger wives and concubines that he had in his household during the
last 10 years of his life. Actually he thought it was
humiliating to have just daughters when everyone else had sons.
He mocked the Quraish for believing Allah
had three daughters.
Have ye seen Lat. and 'Uzza,
And another, the third (goddess), Manat?
What! for you the male sex, and for Him, the female?
Behold, such would be
indeed a division most unfair!
He wrote that when he was still in Mecca,
and perhaps when his son who died at infancy was still alive. Why should it be unfair if God had only
daughters? What is so humiliating and wrong in having just daughters
and no sons? Doesn’t this show that Muhammad thought fathering sons
is more prestigious than fathering daughters?
Obviously Muhammad wanted to have a son
and he did try to have sex with all his young wives. Nevertheless he
was impotent and could not do more than fondling. So instead of having sex he used to
have illusions of having sex.
7, Book 71, Number 660:
Magic was worked on Allah's Apostle so that he used to think that he
had sexual relations with his wives while he actually had not (Sufyan
said: That is the hardest kind of magic as it has such an effect).
The illustration of Muhammad with his
naked wives should not offend the Muslims. What is denigrating is
their belief in such a man as a messenger of God. If Muslims do not
wish their belief ridiculed, they have to stop believing in a man of
such a low moral character as Muhammad instead of trying constantly to
hide their dirty laundries.
MPAC says: “This humiliation will not
stop while most Muslims remain too pacified to lift a finger to stop
Is that another threat of violence? Is
rioting and demanding the execution of Salman Rushdie, Taslima Nasrin
or murdering 200 Christians in Nigeria when a journalist said Muhammad
probably would have wanted to marry one of the contestants in the
Beauty Pageant, the sign of the pacified Muslims?
The author also
says nudity is not allowed in Islam and Islam teaches that women should dress
modestly in public. We all have seen the Islamic dress code for
women. It is not modesty but subjugation. However, this illustration
does not show the wives of the prophet in public but how they dressed
(or rather undressed) in private just to please and excite the last
messenger of God.
In fact Allah seemed to be too keen to
meet the sexual needs of his beloved messenger while he continued
murdering, looting and pillaging innocent civilians. In the Sura
Tahrim Allah tells his prophet
O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou
hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out
of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee; and
daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of thy
maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated (from Makka) with thee; and
any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the
Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the
Believers (at large); We know what We have appointed for them as to
their wives and the captives whom their right hands possess;- in
order that there should be no difficulty for thee. And
Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Indeed Allah was too merciful to the
prophet, but not so much to his victims.
The Islamists have started their campaign
of terrorization and intimidation to cow the publisher to remove their
book. I suggest we write to the publisher and offer our solidarity and
support. Muslim hooligans should not be allowed to attack our freedom of speech
with threats of violence.
There are books written against
Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and every other religion
under the sun or in the cave. Yet the Muslims are the only ones who
protest and try to silence anyone writing against their religion. It is time
that we all stand against this Islamic bullying and defend our freedom
of thought, speech and pen.
Thousands of Muslims must have filled the
mailbox and jammed the phones of the publisher with threats and hate messages.
Please call them (the publishers) or send them an email and tell that you defend their
right to freedom of expression. By doing so you are defending your own
rights and freedoms.
