ICNA Resolves to Continue MLK Struggle for Justice

01 16 16



NEW YORK, NY (January 16, 2016) – ​Today as we remember the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on MLK Day we note that with increasing hateful rhetoric among certain political aspirants, racism continues to be entrenched in American society despite the work of Dr. King and others like him.

In such an environment ICNA calls on all Americans to strive to erase the false lines of division and fight against the evils of religious bigotry, sexism, racism, and economic exploitation.

ICNA President Naeem Baig said “Let us not allow politicians to build their popularity by creating fears through racist and bigoted statements”.

More than half a century later Dr. King continues to be an inspiration in the fight for dignity and equal rights in America.

Under rising Islamophobic oratory and hate crimes, the American Muslim community can emulate Dr. King’s methods of peaceful engagement to overcome hate and intolerance.

As he said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Dr. King recognized that the Civil Rights movement was part of a universal struggle for human rights.

The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said, “For every day on which the sun rises, there is a reward for the one who establishes justice among people.” Combating injustice is a moral duty for Muslims, and they can take inspiration from inspiring leaders like Dr. King.

The Islamic Circle of North America is a leading American Muslim organization dedicated to the betterment of society through the application of Islamic values. Since 1968, ICNA has worked to build relations between communities by devoting itself to education, outreach, social services and relief efforts.

    ISLAM – Essential Facts to Know—Truth cannot be an “insult” nor a “phobia”….just irrefutable.
    by copyright c Samuel A. Nigro, M.D. January, 2011+January 2015

    (Not wanting to offend, Mein Kampf and The Communist Manifesto were not vigorously explained and condemned enough to the people because “most Germans and the Soviets were not that way, would take offense, and would quit being nice.” Right?)

    1. Islam is not a religion of the one true God. Without TRANSCENDENTAL LOVE, Islam is a POLITICAL SYSTEM masquerading as a religion…There is no possible “separation of church and state” because the Koran and the Sharia makes them identical for Islam. In this way, Islam is unconstitutional in America. Islam is pure primitive savagery and hardens the heart. Civilized cultures must offer Christianity at some minimum level or the culture is a disaster.
    2. Muslims operationally adore the pagan moon god of POWER—“Al lah”—unidentifiable with the LOVING GOD of Jews and Christians. The Koran is a Declaration of War with nothing to do with human love–It intoxicates people and brain-washes children into sub-human violence. Muslims are raised without play and games of decency, fair play, equality, dignity or sophistication; there will never be a Muslim “Jimmy Valvano”; they have been raised as Koran maniacs obsessed with power for their leaders and hate for those different. Thus, they can easily turn from seemingly passive, nice, friendly colleagues into robot-like murderers. If they mumble “Koran says so”, “Mohammed says so”, or “Allah says so”, they can do anything without worry or guilt. Islam is not a religion, and Muslims are really idolators because they operationally ADORE a book (the Koran) and their founder, Mohammed—they are Koranaholics and Mohammedaholics. And, when the time is “right,” they will kill you unless they reject all anti-love Islam.
    3. Mohammed was converted from paganism by Jews and Christians and he was essentially a Christian convert while in Mecca the first time (Mecca I) because there he was monogamous, a pacificist and certainly a Catholic Mass attending monotheist. But after he left Mecca I, he contorted what he learned from Christianity (Mohammed could not read, so what he learned about Christianity was from his Mass attending at least) into his own style of political paganism camouflaged as a monotheism of sorts–or those power-mad “emperors” taking his place kidnapped and deformed the real Catholic Mohammed of Mecca I.
    4. Muslims do not believe in LOVE–The over 6000 verses Koran mentions the word “love” about 80 times, and then, it is always in reference to what Allah loves or loves not. “Love” pertaining to human relationships and to relationships with a Loving God does not exist in Islam. Fearing LOVE is the worst of Muslim Westernophobia. The Koran is a public health hazard which should not be translated from Arabic–it creates murderers. There is no love in Islam. As now used, the Koran is a hate-speech filled, hate creating document to be prohibited. To believe in the Koran is to be a crypto-terrorist at least.
    5. Islam is empty with almost absolute poverty and distortion of love, empathy, sympathy, life, sacrifice, virtue, humanity, peace, freedom, death, Truth, Oneness, Good and Beauty as commonly understood. The Transcendentals and all spiritual words are DEFINED DIFFERENTLY by the Koran so these words are demons instead of angels as in Western Civilization. This fools many into thinking that Muslims agree when they use these words, but they are speaking a different language. When Mohammed spoke of the Gospels, he did not have the words to be accurate; he could not read himself, so he never really had the ability to present genuine Spirituality.
    6. Muslims who adore the Koran believe in POWER, any way and every way: words secretly defined differently, lying, cheating, stealing, enslaving, murdering, child sex, women clothed in sacks being suppressed and on all fours most of the time except when being told to suckle Mohammed or other demanding Islamic men. Muslims are Koraniacs or, for their own safety, must pretend to be.
    7. POWER is the real commerce, the only respectability, the only status, the only eros in Islam. The most important knowledge any Muslim must have is “to know your master (‘tyrant’ really)!” followed by absolute deference.
    8. POWER is the only spectator sport in Islam—a theatre of chanting screaming war-whoops from zombies stomping on people or on their knees digging their foreheads in the dirt. There is no love in Islamic rituals or in Islamic metaphors for life, which are always found in Judeo-Christian scripture.
    9. Muslim scholars use bewildering mountainous word salads (hadiths and their other so-called “scripture”) presented as history and intelligence, but these words really are seductive selfish tendentious manipulations, fabrications, distortions, displacements, rationalizations and obsessions which hide and obfuscate the dehumanizing vicious beliefs, murderous intolerance and oppressing requirements of Islam.
    10. Islam fails if the Koran or Mohammed fail criticism…which is why Muslims cannot allow any criticism and prohibit any open clarifications of the Koran or Mohammed. The criticisms cannot be rebutted so Muslims just respond by shouting about past victimizations–which pale compared to the viciousness of Islam on infidels typical of the Islamic State of today.
    11. The Koran teaches to strategize by feigned friendship and virtuous conduct until in power. Followers of the Koran are instructed to “fake it” until in control and then to be intolerant, tax unfairly, enslave or kill all who do not believe as required.
    12. Muslims often arrange marriages for children, and first cousin marriages are a tradition. This inbreeding and consanguinity result in a higher incidence of genetic abnormalities affecting intelligence, sanity, and health (Google psychologist “Nicolai Sennels”), which is probably why Muslims are Koraniacs and are easily led, robot-like, to unfreedom and violence. (70% of Pakistanis and 40% of Turks are inbred.)
    13. Children are generally raised without fun, games, sports and poisoned by all emphasis on obtaining zombie like power through the Koran by any means possible.
    14. Muslims are victimhood experts (Westernophobics!) eagerly spouting all the misdeeds that have been done against Islam but conveniently denying and censoring all of the monstrous atrocities done by Islam from abduction of children (the “boy tax”—look up “devshirme” and “Janissary”) to the murder of Christians and others who disagree, any time, all the time, whenever possible and thought necessary.
    15. Muslims fabricate and falsely claim to have created all sorts of advances in civilization – which is blatant historical fraud because almost all alleged contributions from Islam can be traced to their Christian slaves who understood languages such as Greek and Latin while the Muslim enslavers didn’t know or believe anything but the Koran. Almost all claimed contributions by Muslims are grandiose public relation fabrications which, by such envious claims, are absolutely self-discrediting.
    16. Muslims hate all unlike Islam, cogently proving that most hate is from denied envy.
    17. Muslims cannot rebut thoughtful criticism which is why any criticism is called blasphemy, so those who criticize or want to leave Islam can be exterminated. Thus Muslims are fear-filled closeted secret Islamophobes unless they are Koraniacs.
    18. Muslims preach and promote themselves as Mohammed did: The perfect epitome of Mohammed is his claim to have “cut the moon in half” in order to grotesquely manipulate ignorant people. To know all Mohammed is to know evil…his sanctification by Muslims is genetic madness professing murderous bigotry. Of the 450,000 slaves imported to the Americas, there are 35 million African-American descendents. Of the more than 500,000 slaves imported to Islam Middle East, at the same time, there are no significant groups of African descendents–all having been worked to death and prevented from reproducing (And American slavery went on for one century while Islamic slavery went on for ten centuries+. There was no civil war to stop slavery in Islam which still continues sub rosa today. How any African anywhere can be Muslim is to be a traitor to humanity and one’s race.
    19. Muslims cannot be trusted – They will profoundly deny everything objectionable about Islam and themselves until in power – and then you are going to be in for it unless you grovel like they do with your forehead in the dirt. And they would if they could kill those Muslims who refuse to be or quit being Koraniacs. Wearing a hajib or looking “Islamic” is to be hiding a machine gun, a pistol or a suicide bomb.
    20. Islam prohibits alcohol AS IT MUST, because alcohol will disinhibit resulting in a furious release -of bitter hatred by Muslims for their deformed unfree lives and their masters, or -an outrageous acting out of all violence in Islam. POWER is the only intoxicant (and “joy”) allowed by Islam. Alcohol use will prove Islamic self-hatred.
    21. Muslims cannot be regularly believed– if they are nice – take it – but watch your back, because the Koran requires that Muslims live and kill today like they did in the 7th century, which is absolute insanity—probably genetically inbred, i.e., natural selection gone wacko by an incapacity to enter into a new period of history of a Loving God.
    22. Muslims only care about themselves and their metaphors for living are really TACTICS to achieve power and power alone. They know it…you know it now too.
    23. Muslims always bring CONFLICT because they DEMAND to impose their pseudo-religious political system known as Islam…”Live and let live”?—forgetaboutit.
    24. Islam is not a religion but a primitive anachronistic political system unworthy of the 21st century—unless it re-professes a LOVING GOD and not the power-mad ideology of those who kidnapped Mohammed of Mecca the first time.
    25. Muslims should en masse convert to the Catholicism of Mohammed when he was in Mecca I–monotheist, monogamous, pacifist, tolerant of all differences, allowing children to have childhood, not selling of women or children, marriage between one man and one woman, supporting womanhood without suppression or raping, prohibiting oppressive slavery, allowing criticism and open debate, allowing conversion to other religions, not murdering those who disagree, and heaven was not a whorehouse. No Muslim can be trusted who does not, at least, take an oath to follow permanently Mohammed of Mecca I rather than the subhuman Islam of Mecca II. But even then one must be cautious. Conversion to Catholicism as Mohammed did would be more reassuring–All Christians would welcome them to life, sacrifice, virtue, love, humanity, peace, freedom, and natural death without fear.
    27. For a more complete understanding of Islam, check out “The True History of Islam, Mohammed and the Koran” and “The Cult of Islam.” The trouble is, if you tell Muslims their real history, they want to kill you, not because you offend “God” but because you offend their gods–Mohammed and the Koran. They do not care about a Loving God. They just worship the power-mad gods: Mohammed and the Koran–and their evil imam “tyrant” leader threatening them.
    28. Muslims move to Western countries but bring their country with them establishing “no-go-zones” for Westerners. One wonders why they left their “wonderful” country and why they just do not return to it. They cannot be assimilated because that means abandonment of Islam and death if they did. They should not be allowed to bring what they were fleeing from.

    What The Koran Really Says: Tolerance & Peace?
    If the press does not repeatedly tell the world of ISIS and Islam sex slavery and visciousness, their recruiting will never stop…

    “Kill non-Muslims wherever you find them. Lie in wait and ambush them, seize and capture them using every stratagem of war (for example, political, economic, propaganda, population explosion). If they convert to Islam and pray and contribute to the cause of Islam (Jihad), let them go.” (Koran 9:5). “Non-Muslims MUST convert to Islam or they will be killed.” (Koran 48:16). “Fight the people of the Book (Jews and Christians) and extort money from them.” (Koran 9:29). “Mohammed, the messenger of Allah, and those who follow him (Muslims) are merciful to one another but harsh to the infidels (non-Muslims).” (Koran 48:29). “Do not make friends with inferior people (Jews, Christians and all non-Muslims).” (Koran 3:118). “Truly the Pagans are unclean; so let them not…approach the Sacred Mosque” (Koran-9:28). “People of the Book (Jews and Christians) and all non-Muslims who do not believe [in Islam] will be in hell forever. They are the worst of human beings” (Koran 98:6-8). “The time [of judgment and resurrection] will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews and kill them; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!” (Sahih Muslim book 41, no. 6985). “The Believers (Muslims) should not take non-Muslims as allies.” (Koran 3:28).
    “I (Allah) will terrorize non-Muslims. Behead them and dismember their bodies because they opposed Allah and his messenger (Muhammad). Allah’s punishment is severe.” (Koran 8:12-13). “I (Allah) will terrorize non-Muslims because they worship other gods. They are condemned to hell, the worst fate.” (Koran 3:151). “When you win a war over non-Muslims, torture them severely so that they may learn a lesson.” (Koran 8:57). “Fight non-Muslims. Allah will torture them with your hands and disgrace them. Allah will give you victory over them and opportunity for revenge so that your hearts may be healed.” (Koran 9:14). “Prepare all means of power to terrorize the enemy of Allah (non-Muslims).” (Koran 8:60). .”When you (Muslims) pursue non-Muslims, tie them up firmly then behead them. Allah can kill them but he wants to test your love for Allah [by killing non-Muslims]. Those (Muslims) who are killed for the sake of Allah will not lose credits for their good works.” (Koran 47:4) . “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter. (Koran 5:33).
    “Oh ye who believe! Murder those of the disbelievers and let them find harshness in you.” (Koran 9:123).

    “Non-Muslims MUST convert to Islam or they will be killed.” (Koran 48:16) “Fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevails justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere (in this earth of Allah’s). (Koran-8:39) “Fight whoever converts from Islam. No other religion is accepted but Allah’s.” (Koran 2:193) “Kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from wherever they drove you out.” (Koran 2:191) “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, never will it be accepted of him; and in the hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual benefits). (Koran-3:85) “If non-Muslims do not want to convert [to Islam] capture and kill them wherever you find them.” (Koran 4:89) “He who opposes the messenger (Muhammad) and follows the religion of non-Muslims will be condemned to hell, the worst fate.” (Koran 4:115) “Kill non-Muslims wherever you find them. Ambush, seize, and capture them. If they convert to Islam and pray and contribute to the cause of Islam, let them go.” (Koran 9:5) “Fight the people of the Book (Jews and Christians) who do not believe in Allah or in the Judgment Day or do not forbid what has been forbidden by Allah and his messenger (Muhammad) or do not convert to the religion of truth (Islam) until they are subdued and pay extortion.” (Koran 9:29) “Do not make peace while you (Muslims) have the upper hand (are winning the war).” (Koran 47:35)
