Assalaamo Aleikum,

This discussion has been going on at Sunniforum, but, i think you guys can help;

Private Eye just attacked all Muslims.. all of us.. no qualifiers, no caveats, all of us, with the following;

Quote Eye Guide: How to spot a Muslim Moderate: 10 Tell-Tale Signs:

1. Prepared to Condemn London Bombings
2. Only Quite Short Beard.
3. Believes in the right of women to wear Burka (sic) at all time.
4. Strongly opposes nuclear destruction of Israel and preers it done by more
civilised means.
5. Strong believer in Iranian model of democracy.
6. Supports right of all homosexuals to be humanely stoned to death.
7. Careful not to carry a rucksack on the tube.
(That's enough Moderates. Ed)


Editorial (Ian Hislop): [email protected]

I used to really like this magazine, but this is too far.. wanna help?

Wow the language here "How to spot a Muslim moderate" sounds like something of a Muslim who commits treason. Are we all limited to one category?

Brother, what do you find so offensive with a spot of pleasant British sense of humour?

Salam,

Is that Sarcasm?

Why the fuss?

There are millions and millions of Muslims who call themselves "Moderate" muslims.

So what's the big deal when non-muslims make a list.

 

 

 

“Verily your Lord is quick in punishment; yet He is indeed Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful (Surah Al-An’am 6:165)
"Indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him is our return" (Surah Baqarah 2: 155)

I do understand, English is not your first language. It's a satire on the situation in Britain rather than on Muslims. Please share with me what you find offensive.

I find it strange that when Musharraf sells the Palestinian stand down the Katrina just to please Bush and Sharon - no Muslim speaks, but you are sobbing here about a light hearted Private Eye fun!

English is my first (of several) languages.

What Musharraf does is as irrelevant as what President Maaouya Ould Sid Ahmed Taya did.. both "Muslim" willing to sell their souls to suckle at the Yank teat.  This is not new to Muslim history.. Think of how much conflict Saladin had with fellow Muslims before he could take on the Franks?

This article does not refer to "british" in anyway.. nor is there any qualifier, or caveat.. Its an attack on the idea that Muslims can be moderate...

It doesnt say "self-declared", or anything like that.. it's an attack on us all, and you support it.  Says a lot about you.

It's a bit of humour. Please don't take it to heart. There are far more important things at hand than just that. B'fazle ta'la, brother i have never been terribly sensitive about what anything ever says about me.

You must be nominated for a Nobel Prize for being the only human being on our earth with more than one first language.
