Hizb'Allah's New Body Armor
The Party of Allah has issued new, high-tech body armor to its agents in southern Lebanon. This new armor is expected to stop any and all weapons the IDF may plan to use against Hizb'Allah.

Mohammed was a pedophile, that is a historical fact.

I'm sure you and I agree that slavery and child marriage are wrong. And I'll oppose either practice, anywhere in the world, today. But to cudgel Mo for this, without cudgeling the historical sins on your own side, is just silly. It's the same deal as when far left critics of America pretend that they can ignore everything Jefferson wrote and everything Washington did, simply because both men owned slaves.

We need to stay focussed on its use of terrorism.

Incidentally, the interpretation of the hadiths varies as to her age. It is not clear that she was nine. That is one interpretation. But even if she were...get over it. Applying modern moral values to prior historical conduct is usually an intellectual sin of the left.

So were not talking about willing marriages were taLkingmarriages where the woman or girl is forced or coerced into this. Many times under theat of an Honor killing.
Child brides are commen I did a post on those too. It's not so much that Christians never married young and some still do. But such marriages under Islam outnumbers all the rest of these put together. Seems to me it says something when one cult outnumbers all the rest in this.

And we certainly need not dig in the past for reasons to revile the shameful state that Islam has fallen into. One babyhunter equals a thousand pedophiles in my mind.
Regardless of what many think, there are good Muslims out there. A vanishingly small minority, to be sure, but a minority worth encouraging. Belittling their faith is counter-productive.
This is my own opinion, not a Jawa editorial stand.

But Bluto is right. And, I also think that focusing on the past, to the extent that specific Islamic practices are proposed for return, as Joe points out, makes sense. So let's all agree that forced marriages, honor killings, the status of women, underage marriages, are all topics that reform elements within Islam must be encouraged to change. And prevent their return. Iran was a very liberal society from 1950-1979, a modernizing secularizing culture. They went backwards, because the shah killed so many liberals, leaving only radicals. There was only one alternative to his evil rule--islamofascism. Many took it, never believing it would be worse. It was/is.
Oh, and if Jesus came to save us from child marriages, he took his sweet time about it, last gasp. Ditto for slavery. Here you have this savior, who NEVER mentioned that slavery was wrong, and it was all around him? (Mo didn't either).
Hmmm...I'm telling people to avoid calling Mo a pedophile to avoid alienating all of Islam, but I'm raising Jesus' treatment of slavery and child marriage at the risk of alienating Christians...double standard, I guess.

Mohammed is viewed as the perfect man. Muslims have a term for it aside from "sunnah." Sunnah means Prophet's Traditions (i.e. live like Mohammed).
I'm so sick of moral equivalence argument which are used so westerners can stick their heads back in the sand in lieu of thinking.
To live somewhat like Jesus Christians invented monastic orders.
To live like Mohammed Muslims go on jihad, capture innocent people and chop off their heads.
Thinking: not just for rocket scientists.

Leftwing moral equivalence is dumbing down your thinking. Christians don't claim moral superiority. The Bible makes it very clear that both "David" and I are scumbags in need of God's grace. That's why Jesus died on the cross for us-- because we are not morally superior. We christians are saved by God's grace, not by our "moral superiority." (And by the way, that also shows how ignorant and stupid you Lefwingers are who claim that christians are "hypocrites" for not being morally perfect. Of course we aren't pefect. That's WHY we are christians. duh!!!!!!).
However I do claim that islam is a cult born of a sword-wielding, gold digging pedophile named Mohammed, which has real consequences. And that christianity is born of the teachings of Jesus, which also has real consequences.
Jesus does not equal Mohammed, and islam does not equal christianity. End of story.

That's sick, as you youngsters like to say these days...
btw, haywood and the better half had a great time up at Oshkosh last week, thanks for asking. Love the fashions, love that you parents out there don't care or know how much lil' Kelli and her friends are showing off.
Hey, I hope they're all of the age of legal consent! Being American, I have naturally high levels of testosterone. And naturally advanced intellect, so I know better.

for sure, our Biblical heros had wives and concubines but if the number is noted, it's not the pivotal point of the story.
oh- and as a mother of 6, JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE DOES IT, DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT!

From everything I know of Mohammed and the 7th-century Muslims, I can totally see them wearing the body armor if they thought it'd give them even a slight edge in battle.
Of course, this "armor" wouldn't have given one much of a fighting edge back in those days--unless your enemies were laughing too hard to fight. This armor is only useful in a time of civilization, Western guilt, live news feeds and a 24-hour news cycle.

Rather than debating Mohammed's paedophilia, what we should be keeping our eyes focused on is the ninth, or "Sword" Sura of the Qur'an, which is the one that provides the jihadis with their divine mission to wipe us all out. Well, one eye on that, and the other on all the people both in Europe and in the US who feel that even a tiny, minor, fleeting jab at the US and those who support her, is worth a thousand lifetimes of the dhimmi-tude they'll bring upon themselves (and whatever few of the rest of us who survive the purges).
As to the comparison between the Bible and the Qur'an~ there isn't one. While many atrocities have been carried out in the name of the Bible, they are done *in contravention* of G-d's word. In the Qur'an, followers of Islam are called on *to COMMIT* atrocities, which are laid out in detail. Christianity, while asserting the desire of bringing all souls to Christ, still recognizes the human dignity inherent in every person God created. (If it weren't for this, we would probably still have slavery to this day). In the Qur'an, everyone who isn't a Muslim has no worth whatsoever, and is subject to (and owed) whatever treatment a Muslim cares to mete out to him. Originally there was some leeway given to Christians and Jews as "Children of the Book", but that was overturned by several subsequent revelations, and we now all rank lower than beasts of burden. The Qur'an exhorts Muslims to take what groups of us they don't kill and sell us into slavery. One reads fairly frequently of cases where Arab Muslims (generally Saudi's) get busted here in the US for practising (still!) slavery. Not a whole lot of that thing going on with Christians. Nor do Christians do to practisers of other religions what Muslims in non-Western countries do: in Saudi for example, you can't wear any article of clothing, jewelry or accessory denoting any faith whatsoever, you can't legally own a Bible, you can't meet in groups of more than two (or maybe it's one now), and you can't even legally speak to your children about Christ.
And these are the fine, noble folks that the Left is bending itself into pretzels to promote. Over all of our "Evil", "Nazi", "Fascist", "Christian fundamentalist", Militarized and Brainwashed, Red State, First Ammendment-clinging Americans who really want nothing so much as to be done with all this B*S*, all the moral relativists and all these repugnant, filthy, and disgusting people.
