In my daily Internet travels I occasionally come across articles written by American Muslims which are clearly written to put a positive spin on Islam. Clearly written by an Islamic propagandist. Since the information aspect is a big part of this war, I will start exposing these authors as I come across them. My first in the series was "My Exchange With Hollywood Filmmaker Kamran Pasha" .
Today I will write about Eboo Patel who is a member of President Barack Obama's Administration's New Faith Advisory Council. Recently Mr.Patel wrote an article entitled "When Muslims Saved Jews".
His article promotes the new book "Besa: Muslims who Saved Jews in World War II". The story is about Albanian Muslim families that protected Jews during the Holocaust. I applaud them for doing this, but individual acts of kindness by some Muslims does not change the fact that Islam itself promotes hatred of Jews. Judging from Patel's past articles, providing a smokescreen for Islam is why this article was written.
Of course Patel failed to mention several important facts.
Patel makes no mention what so ever that the Mufti of Jerusalem played a big role in the Holocaust.
At the Nuremberg Trials , Eichmann's deputy Dieter Wisliceny (subsequently executed as a war criminal) testified:
The Mufti was one of the initiators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry and had been a collaborator and adviser of Eichmann and Himmler in the execution of this plan. ... He was one of Eichmann's best friends and had constantly incited him to accelerate the extermination measures. I heard him say, accompanied by Eichmann, he had visited incognito the gas chamber of Auschwitz.
Patel also does not mention that the Albanian government and other Albanian Muslims helped kill Jews during the Holocaust. They even had their own SS Division.
In regards to Islam, Patel conveniently does not bring up the fact that the Islamic scriptures call for Muslims to kill Jews to reach judgement day.
Nor does Patel mention this verse from the Hadiths, which shows us that the Islamic threat to Jews has been going on for over 1000 years.
Hadith Malik 511:1588 The last statement that Muhammad made was: “O Lord, perish the Jews and Christians. They made churches of the graves of their prophets. There shall be no two faiths in Arabia.” (During the caliphates of the first four Caliphs this edict was fully carried out and all non-believers were removed from Arabia.)
Unfortunately the threat to Jews stemming from Islam today is still alive and well. Leading the charge is Ayatollah Ali Khamenei the Supreme Leader of nuclear ambitious Iran who recently stated that Israel is "cancerous tumor in the heart" of the Islamic world.
Mr.Patel you should be ashamed of yourself, but obviously you are not.
