“Our lord linked Judgment Day with our conflict with the Jews. The story is not about land, occupation, and rights. The source of our crisis is that we do not view these people as humans…We have wasted vast efforts on this hatred.” — Hamed Abdel-Samad
There is an aggressive effort afoot to silence secular intelligentsia of the Arab – Islamic world. With increasing frequency, videos that feature their critical analysis of Islamic ideology, governance, and history are being taken down as seen here. This is censorship. It is the silencing of dissent. It is repression, through suppression. Given the position of the governing elite in the Western world, perhaps best exemplified by statements made by President Obama and Hillary Clinton, towards exposing the grim reality of life under Islam, it is essential that these thoughtful, eloquent voices of reason are heard — for their sakes and ours.
Adara Press welcomes new sources for these videos from readers.
Thank you for your support and courage.
In a lecture posted on the Internet on March 21, Egyptian-German scholar Hamed Abdel-Samad said that the Prophet Muhammad had lowered the Jews to a “subhuman level, viewing them as animals,” and he compared the treatment of the Jews in the years following Muhammad’s death to that of the Nazis. “This hatred is poisoning us” and “preventing us from dealing with our problems in a serious way,” said Abdel-Samad, adding that “instead of poisoning one generation after another with this hatred, we should let them learn something from humanity,” in order to enable them to “overcome the barrier of hatred and of fear of the other.” The lecture is titled “Islamic Fascism and the Jews.” For additional lectures by Abdel-Samad, see MEMRI TV clips 5443 and 5356.
