Texas – Imam Samer Altabaa reaction to the Saudi Muslim charged in terror plot in Lubock-“God sent (Mohammed) to have mercy in the world, and to spread mercy on all creation of the world.”

 

 

We keep hearing how wonderful and peaceful Islam is.

Too bad that it’s reality and history really don’t tell the same story.  At least not to me.  But, maybe THIS is how PEACE is achieved in the Muslim world.  Maybe the reason they call it PEACEFUL is because it WANTS peace – but it’s peace through violence and submission.

See, everything that the Muslims say,  have different meanings.  They twist language and imagery is deceiving.

A charge that should be considered is TREASON for this little man, who chose to take on just a smidge more than he could chew.

Is this the same IMAM ? hmm – same name.

Boy these guys get around

Lubbock imam reacts to suspected terrorist’s arrest

Imam Samer Altabaa of the Islamic Center of the South Plains reacted to news of the Feb. 23 arrest of Saudi-born Lubbock resident Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari on charges of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.
Altabaa had just heard of the charges when contacted for comment before noon Feb. 24, and had just begun to contact people in the Saudi community.
“They are shocked,” he said.
He said that he did not know Aldawsari and had not heard of him before the arrest. He also said that no one in the Saudi community seemed to know Aldawsari. If the allegations against Aldawsari are true, Altabaa said, the suspect’s absence from the local Muslim community is no surprise.
The suspect would “want to stay way from everyone if he is really planning for something bad,” Altabaa said.
“We like to give (a) plain message to everyone that Islam is a religion of peace. Islam is a religion against terrorism or terrorists or any person who wants to terrify any human being. These terrorist people, they never come to a mosque because they don’t belong there.”
The Muslim community is bracing itself for retaliation, Altabaa said. The Islamic Student Center has been vandalized multiple times, and Altabaa said that he and other leaders are deciding whether to ask for additional police security before another crime takes place against either the Islamic Center or the Islamic Student Center.
Altabaa said that retaliatory acts are often committed by people who do not know about Islam.
“We faced this before. We are afraid because there are some people that are ignorant or that don’t have enough information about Islam.”
Altabaa added, “They don’t know that (Aldawsari) is an alien to Islam…He is the enemy of humanity, not only the religion.”
Altabaa went on to express appreciation for the role intelligence sources had in capturing the suspect.
“They are keeping our country safe from these terrorists,” he said.
“We are happy here in our mosque that the FBI really captured one of these terrorists. We hope that this person and that everything we have heard about him is not right…but if it is, we are happy that he is captured; he should be charged for what he was planning to do.”
When asked about the Quran’s stance on violent and terrorist acts, Altabaa responded, “The Quran always calls all Muslims to commit to peace, to live with peace, especially with non-Muslims.”
He added, “God sent (Mohammed) to have mercy in the world, and to spread mercy on all creation of the world.”
Quoting a translation of the Quran, Altabaa said, “Whoever kills one person, (it is as) if he killed all human beings; he is equal to a person who killed all human beings. And whoever saves one person’s life, (it is as) if he saved all human beings. The Quran makes it clear to every Muslim.”
“Muslims are people of peace,” said the imam, “because this is what Islam means.”

    Could the good imam please explain exactly where his co-religionist has islam wrong? I’ve never heard one muslim explain with koranic authority where the so-called extremists misunderstand islam. It seems more likely that they are just trying to counter inconvenient truths.

      The only thing I ever here any Islamist say is that the condemn infidels and they condemn their own with not being Islamic enough. Never do I hear any of them say that it’s OK for everyone to have their own beliefs and we must respect each others right to have them. This is why ISLAM is not a RELIGION. It requires that it is EXCLUSIVE, which means that it is not FREEDOM, it is constrained ONLY to itself.
      It’s the fool who declare a wolf should have the same rights as sheep in the plain. What would happen if the sheep rancher WELCOMED wolves to ROAM about with the SHEEP?
      In order to UNDERSTAND that this is a not a morally correct logic,one has to be truthful and honest about what a WOLF is. A predator.
