The Three Stooges Coming to a Campus Near You!

shoebat

If you live near to, or are a student at a university you might be interested in knowing that the Three Stooges are touring college campuses nationwide, but before you get your hopes up just know that it’s not the three stooges that you might be familiar with.

We’re talking about the three stooges of the Christian Right: Walid Shoebat, Kamal Saleem and Zachariah Anani.

These three aren’t comedic geniuses in the usual sense but rather are funny in the same way that televangelists who steal money from gullible viewers searching for a cure to their ills give you fits of laughter while at the same time making you feel sick to your stomach. You know its a charade, a concocted myth but you watch to see the theatrics of the show and the usual ‘planted’ caller who declares how the televangelist’s powers cured them of their incurable disease.

So now we have another group of individuals using and abusing Christianity in the name of profit. Former New York Times Middle East Bureau Chief and expert on Christian Fundamentalism Chris Hedges describes them to a tee:

These self-described former Muslim terrorists are regularly trotted out at Christian colleges—a few days ago they were at the Air Force Academy—to spew racist filth about Islam on behalf of groups such as Focus on the Family. It is a clever tactic. Curly, Larry and Mo, who all say they are born-again Christians, engage in hate speech and assure us it comes from personal experience. They tell their audiences that the only way to deal with one-fifth of the world’s population is by converting or eradicating all Muslims.Their cant is broadcast regularly on Fox News, including the Bill O’Reilly and Neil Cavuto shows, as well as on numerous Christian radio and television programs. Shoebat, who has written a book called “Why We Want to Kill You,” promises in his lectures to explain the numerous similarities between radical Muslims and the Nazis, how “Muslim terrorists” invaded America 30 years ago and how “perseverance, recruitment and hate” have fueled attacks by Muslims. (emphasis added)

In fact their tour isn’t simply limited to Christian colleges but extends to colleges and universities that have no affiliation with religion. As noted above they have spoken at the Air Force Academy and most recently (minus Anani) at Western Michigan University.

The fundamentally obvious question that seems to escape people is, “If these guys really are ‘ex-terrorists’ why are they allowed to roam free, campus to campus, lecture hall to lecture hall without being monitored or questioned by the FBI?” The logic of a lot of their supporters in answering this concludes that: if a terrorist repents and accepts Christianity they should be spared prosecution for any crimes committed beforehand.

The looniness in the case of these stooges doesn’t require a great deal of research but can be gleaned from their own words as the best material for their hilarity comes from their own mouths.

For instance, Zachariah Anani claim’s in his biography posted on Shoebat’s hate-site that:

“Every time I killed someone and two or three fighters witnessed it, they would give me a point on my chart. I carried 223 points.”Even his comrades feared him. “Although we had a sense of loyalty to each other,” he says, “we were ready to take out enemies or friends.” When a fanatical Muslim joined his regiment and began knocking on doors to wake the others for prayer at 3 A.M., Anani warned him: “I don’t want to pray. Don’t come and wake me.” When he heard the knock early the next morning, Anani picked up his gun, shot him, and went back to sleep.

LoonWatchers, we can’t make this stuff up!

According to his own admission he has killed at least 223 people and that’s only in those cases in which there were two or three witnesses. You’d think the FBI, CIA and Homeland Security would be all over this murderer but no one knows who he is or what he’s talking about. Also, what kind of insane and pathological individual non-chalantly shoots someone and then simply goes back to sleep; Anani it seems!

The other two stooges are just as bad if not worse in attempting to sell their outlandish and fantastical stories.

Kamal Saleem and Walid Shoebat

Kamal Saleem and Walid Shoebat

Kamal Saleem claim’s to be the descendant of someone called the “The Grand Wazir of Islam,” which  Hedges points out is “a title and a position that do not exist in the Arab world.” It can be further noted that the religion of Islam has no clerical hierarchy similar to the Catholic Church with defined positions such as the Pope, Bishops, Priests, etc. Kamal’s blooper in his bio is either a result of an ignorance of Islam and its structure or an attempt to manipulate the ignorance of his audience.

Shoebat may be the most outlandish of them all, he is also the most well known. He has in the past equated Islam with “Satanism” and “Nazism.” He also stated in front of an audience at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee that “Palestinians keep Jewish testicles and breasts in jars.”

He claim’s to have planted a bomb at Bank Leumi in Bethlehem but his story has been debunked by several sources including the Jerusalem Post and Shoebat’s own family members. Bank Leumi itself states that they have no record of a bomb attack for the time period asserted by Shoebat.

Simon Altaf, a former Muslim and a convert to Christianity was a close friend of Shoebat and along with him co-authored a book titled This is our Eden, This is our End. Altaf states that,

Walid wanted to be an ex-Terrorist to make money, pure and simple.

In the end the goal is to make money off of these speaking engagements, television appearances, and Church gatherings. This is an easy sell, after 9/11 many Americans were rightly afraid of another terrorist attack;  in this climate Anti-Muslim and Islamophobic sentiment grew making it a ripe time for someone to capitalize on the growing fear and paranoia in the country.

These three stooges hit on the jack pot and saw that there was a cottage industry developing to bash Muslims and Islam and so jumped on the bandwagon, taking their loony lies and hate-caravan all the way to the bank.

    No need to be apolegetic bro, its not a sin to ask? In fact questions are welcomed by most world faiths. The difference between the concept of God in Christianity and the concept of God in Islam is that Islam stricly maintains that God (or Allah) is One and Absouloute and is seperate from his creation. Where as most Christian denominations belive in the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) , meaing that God is three seperate coequal enteties in one. Basicaly asserting that Jesus (pbuh) is God incarnate.

    Most World religions derive doctrine out of their religious scriptures. The Bible in the case of Christianity and the Quran in the Case of Islam. The firm belife of an idividual is a process of establishing or beliving that the Holy Book they derive their doctrine from is the Word of God and has been not been changed. Hence one who belives that the Bible is completley the word of God will belive that all of the teachings derived from it are correct and indesputible.

    I hope this answers your question i would give you a longer reply but I’m in a hurry. Feel free to post some more question and i will do my best to clarify.

    Peace be with you

    My dad was in the PLO. They never did things the way Shoebat describes them. He’s a fake and a dishonor to the REAL Palestinian freedom fighters.

    It is disturbing that even after the facts are mentioned, hateful-mongers leave irrational, fictional comments here. God help us all.

    I have a question. What is the difference between the muslum god and the christion god? Are they the same god or not? And why are peole so sure of what they believe? Is it possible that no body is 100% correct. So why does every religion pretend that it is 100% correct? Is it a sin for me to ask this? If so, I appologize.

    I really don’t get it. Islam is NOT a race.

    Walid Shoebat keeps saying and denouncing that the Palestinians fighters resisting the Zionist occupation just like to kill unarmed and docile azkeNAZIs.He also tells to all his audience that those Palestinians are using some Qoranic verses where it s praised to kill Jews and this will allow them to knock at the heaven door with a jewish skull. I have read the whole Qoran and couldnt find this verse. Please Walid Shoebat or someone else have the decensy to clarify this allegations.

    Simon Altaf: I am a covert to messianic or netzarim Judaism and not Christianity

    No difference there. Messianic Judaism is simply some evangelicals pretending to be Jews in order to win converts from among the real Jews. The same is true of Messianic Muslims and other silly Christian groups.

  • Shalom,

    Please just correct your article in that you state: “Simon Altaf, a former Muslim and a convert to Christianity”.

    I am a covert to messianic or netzarim Judaism and not Christianity. Thank you.

    Blessings in the Holy One

    Yes Omar, it’s all bullshit. But most people by now know they’re liars. Those that still believe them are a special breed of people that can not be reasoned with. So don’t even bother.

  • Omar El-Rayyes

    People…. there should be an uproar against those who perpetuate lies about the Palestinians, people like Walid Shoebat are dangerous, these lies have to be stopped! Ablution in Jewish blood? Palestinians responsible for the Holocaust? Jars of Israeli testicles and breasts? WHAT THE HELL IS THIS? THIS IS LIKE LYING TO THE 10th DEGREE!!

  • Omar El-Rayyes

    @Vin:
    Are you high?

  • Omar El-Rayyes

    @Richard Carpenter (AKA the fourth stooge):
    So your supposed (argument) is that you have “irrefutable facts” that Islam has always been spread by “the edge of the sword” and that since its inception it’s always been about (murder), and you also refer to Islam as a living breathing entity that wants to take over the world by breeding and multiplying and spreading into the air like a virus…
    And you’re perfectly right, we all know that since the inception of Islam Muhammad just drew his might sword and single-handedly fought all of Quraish and beheaded all who opposed him, and then rode off onto his meta-Buraq and flew high in the air, bombing everything underneath him, yeah Islam is a religion of swords, guns, and especially bombs… And I can’t possibly find any verse in the Quran that completely blows your argument out of the water… oh wait…

  • Richard Carpenter

    It really is of NO Consequence if these three men are 100% valid or not. The irrefutable facts are that ISLAM HAS ALWAYS been spread by the edge of the sword. All of you ignorant little LIBERAL twits that grew up on Liberal Revisionist History need to research the actual history of ISLAM. From it’s conception it has been about murder, it has always been about murder and it continues to this day (if you happen to actually discover what is going on in the world today). Islam plans (and will succeed) to take over Europe, Africa and will be in a position to manipulate the United nations when it does (it does a pretty good job of that already)
    If you want to see the fate of Europe study the history of Lebanon from 1947 to 1990. What happened in Lebanon WILL happen in Europe.Islam has already figured out that they can take Europe WITHOUT firing a shot. Unfortunately for Europe Islam loves the spilling of blood so much that they don’t want to wait until they BREED their way into dominance. So the terror will continue. by the way.. some of the first people they will behead are you idiot liberals….
