Brigitte Gabriel: Liberals and Muslims Doing “Exactly What Hitler Did”

Brigitte Gabriel

Right-wing Christianity’s favorite self-hating racist, Hanan Tudor, a.k.a Brigitte Gabriel has been making a killing through her anti-Islam organization “ACT! For America,” also better known as Hate! for America.

Not too long ago she was at the Cornerstone Church in Nashville, Tennessee, (yes, the same church that hosted European fascist Geert Wilders) participating in the “anti-Shariah Conference.” You can watch the video yourself here.

As you can see Gabriel is up to her usual gimmick, fear-mongering about the deadly and dire “Islamization of the USA,” which is supposedly happening right under the patriotic noses of: good, wholesome, real Americans! According to her the Muslims are being aided in this anti-American endeavor by the liberals who wish nothing more than to see America destroyed!

She says at the 6:00 minute mark about the “Liberal-Islamic axis of evil”:

They’re doing exactly what Hitler did. What did Hitler say, what did Hitler do? “Give me the children and I’ll change society in ten years.”

Really? The Hitler card? Isn’t that played out by now?

Cornerstone Church has a history of giving a platform to this sort of anti-Islam and anti-Muslim propaganda. I won’t be surprised if one of its congregants believes he/she has to take out the Muslims before they take over, or perhaps a la cultural-Christian-Templar-Knight-Terrorist Anders Breivik, take out the liberals who are facilitating the so-called “demise of the USA.”

*********************

While Brigitte Gabriel’s reputation has been severely discredited and she is unable to get the kind of access that she was accustomed to in the past she is still able to weasel her way at times into the mainstream.

Such was the case recently in an article written by Frida Ghatis for McClatchy Newspapers and which was picked up by the Miami Herald, Sacramento Bee and several other papers. Ghatis’ article was titled, Truly Revolutionary: Arabs Speaking Well of Israel.

The piece is pro-Israel propaganda through-and-through and while maintaining a veneer of objectivity it degrades the successes of the Arab Spring and revolves around the not-so-hidden thesis that a real revolution in the Arab world would be one in which Arabs “speak well of Israel.” No explanation is given of why many Arabs are anti-Israel (i.e. occupation, apartheid, discrimination, war crimes, the bombing of Arab countries, etc.).

Instead the focus is: will Arabs finally love Israel and say nice things about it. All pretense to objectivity is dropped when we come to this sentence:

Pro-Israel Arabs, Muslims, and former Muslims who use their real names are usually people living safely in the West, such as Lebanon’s Brigitte Gabriel, Somalia’s Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Egypt’s Tawfik Hamid, or Canada’s Irshad Manji.

We have covered all of the loons mentioned above by Ghatis. If Ghatis was willing to do a basic search on Gabriel she would realize that Gabriel doesn’t even consider herself an Arab! In fact, Gabriel believes Arabs have no soul!:

The difference, my friends, between Israel and the Arab world is the difference between civilization and barbarism. It’s the difference between good and evil [applause]…. this is what we’re witnessing in the Arabic world, They have no SOUL!, they are dead set on killing and destruction. And in the name of something they call “Allah� which is very different from the God we believe….[applause] because our God is the God of love.

One can see why Ghatis would be so enthusiastic about Gabriel, she really speaks so “well” of Israel.

    So here’s an example of how stupid and unoriginal this woman really is:

    Jon Stewart does a video about American Christians that are saying they’re persecuted , and in it he says

    “You’ve confused a war on your religion with not always getting everything you want”

    9 hours later, this is “Brigitte’s” Facebook update:

    “Brigitte Gabriel
    People have confused a war on religion with not getting what they want. CAIR is a first class example. LIKE if you agree.”

  • Géji writes: Declaring the Shahada, Salah, Sawm, Zakat, Hajj to Mecca, are the foundations set forth by Allah Himself

    No, Dear, those are what establishes that an individual is a muslim, the last (Hajj) being waived (and thus presumptive) for those without the means to perform Hajj (these days, between $5,000 and $8,000 from America).

    The foundation of Islam is “Laa ilaha ill-ALLAH.”

    Shahadah obligates us to accept someone’s testimony that he is a muslim. ALLAH already knows the truth of that testimony.

    His explicit command is “Aqimoo’s-salat” ~ establish the prayer. All other commands said to refer to salat either describe it or say “Remember ALLAH” at this or that time of day or night. The common ritual form is described by numerous hadith, most of which differ, while the Qur’an specifies “Stand up for ALLAH, singly or in pairs, in the night.” Finally, we have the hadith “The Imam’s prayer is your prayer,” which can be understood in a number of ways, the most common being that the Imam is performing your prayer for you.

    Zakat is incumbent on those from whom it is due, which at only one time in history included all of the muslims.

    Fasting is incumbent on those who witness the hilal of Ramadan and are not otherwise exempted. “Witness” means direct, personal knowledge, not anything else. Although it is permissible for someone who has not witnessed the hilal to begin fasting on the basis of someone else’s testimony that he or she hears first-hand, it is not mandatory.

    You can compare the hadith that mentions these five with another:

    “Bada al-jama’a ‘ala khums ~ amira, sama’a, tawaa’iya, jihad, wa hijrah” ~ the jama’ah is established on five: an amir, hearing him, obeying him, struggle at his direction, and retreat at his call.”

    You can have as many muslims gathered for Friday prayers as you can find, but until they are united behind an amir and joined in struggle, they are not a jama’a, they are a group of muslims. Similarly you can be certain that you are a muslim when ALLAH allows you to visit His House. Until then, it’s a matter of faith, not certainty, and the muslims are required to keep faith with what they hear and see.

  • @ Hajj Dawud – Thanks for your comment. I’ve been wondering about the “Sir” Stephen; I thought perhaps you were getting me confused with the commenter “Sir David”. 😀

  • @ “Geji” – I do appreciate your reply; but I won’t be using the comments section of Loonwatch to try to defend my personal beliefs on those matters (and everyone breathed a sigh of relief 😆 ). My views are sometimes just simply MY views, and will sound “strange” and “weird” to others.

    You may be sure, though, that I have no desire to try to convince “practicing” Muslims to cease their practice; and I most certainly am not seeking to say that such practice is ‘wrong’. God’s peace and blessing be with you as you seek to obey the will of God. 🙂

  • “Inspired by Muhammad” writes (to Sir Stephen): If you really were a Muslim you wouldn’t be using new testament which is rejected by Islam for your own beliefs.

    In the Qur’an, ALLAH instructs the Christians to return to their Book, proving that it was intact and extant at the time, and will be intact and extant forever. The Qur’an instructs us that the people of the Book (1) moved words from their places, (2) twisted their tongues with the Book, (3) hid the Book behind their backs, and (4) wrote with their own hands what they said was the Book but was not the Book. Nowhere does the Qur’an say that they were able to remove ALLAH’s Words from the earth that He had established in the earth.

    With the Qur’an we can identify most, if not all, of what they said was the Book but is not; with the history of The Promised Land from Abraham through to today, we can identify most, if not all, of what words were changed from their places; with knowledge of Semitic grammar, syntax, and vocabulary construction, we can identify most, if not all, of how they twisted their tongues with the Book; and with the recorded history of the beginnings of the Ummah raised by the Final Revelation, we can identify most, if not all, of what they hid behind their backs ~ the history of those beginnings recorded, in advance, in the Hebrew/Aramaic Scriptures and in the words of His Word that He cast into Mary, Jesus.

    If you really were a Muslim you wouldn’t be abusing the “new testament” which contains what is guarded, preserved, and protected by the Qur’an.

  • Sir Stephen writes: I find the Qur’an to be a true and infallible message from God, without internal inconsistency.

    Which makes you a muslim, which is why I refer to you as “Sir Stephen.”

  • Many people would agree that the Jews of today aren’t Semites while Abraham and Isaac were Semitic!

    And those “many people” would be mistaken. Those who are suffering the curses of Deuteronomy 28:15-68, according to the Covenant made at Horeb (Deut 29:1), are suffering because they are Jews, not because they are not. And the Ashkenazi are the successors of the pharisees, scribes, and sanhedrin of Jesus’ time, they didn’t spontaneously appear out of thin air.

  • JD

    and I personally dont have a issue with Israel I would love to go there walk around I am sure they won’t let me since Israel is a religious apartheid state wont let me in but I agree with the 1940 Israel heck or peace I give them 1960 border since they won the war but They need to lay down a permanent border and follow it and allow Pali do the same.

  • JD

    Just FYI kids If you look at a history book Israel has been created and destroyed 3 times Last time was by Rome who then kicked out all of the jews from the land and they scattered all over the world from Africa to EU so anything about it in Bible quran torah has all ready been for filled.

    @Stephen G. Parker

    Declaring the Shahada, Salah , Sawm , Zakat, Hajj to Mecca, are the foundations set forth by Allah Himself, and obligations that falls upon every able Muslim, they’re not just as “necessary” as they’re straight commandments of Allah. A Muslim cannot be a “Muslim” without performing them , which are precisely what makes someone a “Muslim”.

    1) — O ye who believe! bow down prostrate yourselves and adore your Lord; and do good; that ye may prosper.
    And strive in His cause as ye ought to strive (with sincerity and under discipline): He has chosen you and has imposed no difficulties on you in religion; it is the religion of your father Abraham. It is He Who has named you Muslims both before and in this (Revelation); that the Apostle may be a witness for you and ye be witnesses for mankind! So establish regular Prayer give regular Charity and hold fast to Allah! He is your Protector the Best to protect and the Best to help! — Qur’an 22:77-78, Surah Al-Hajj

    2) — When my servants ask thee concerning Me I am indeed close (to them); I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me; let them also with a will listen to My call and believe in Me; that they may walk in the right way. — Qur’an 2:186, Surah Al-Baqarah

    3) — O ye who believe! fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you that ye may (learn) self-restraint.
    (Fasting) for a fixed number of days; but if any of you is ill or on a journey the prescribed number (should be made up) from days later. For those who can do it (with hardship) is a ransom the feeding of one that is indigent. But he that will give more of his own free will it is better for him and it is better for you that ye fast if ye only knew.
    Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur’an as a guide to mankind also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (between right and wrong). So everyone of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting but if anyone is ill or on a journey the prescribed period (should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you He does not want to put you to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful. — Qur’an 2:183-185, Surah Al-Baqarah.

    Salaam.

    Wow! I was gone for 2 days and this thread is already busting with infights, and way off topics. But I want to know why is my post at February 9th, 2012 at 9:19 pm to IlanReiber, been “[snipped]”, as if I’ve said something outrageous… Was’t because for going off topic? Then in that case I’m sorry but, I must say that I was just responding to others who’ve brought up the subject of Palestinians into the thread, and there are those after my post who’d continued to do so as well, and I don’t see anyone’s post been [snipped]… Or is’t because I’ve said to Mr IlanReiber who was shamelessly using the Qur’an to spread and legitimize his Zionist ideology, that I wont have it when he said- “nothing was stolen, Mr Géji you mean reclaimed”- and said to him he can take that back to his European ancestors where probably Judaism reached them at later time? If that was the reason for the “[snipped]”, then I want to know where is the harm in that, because last I’ve checked Judaism is a religious ideology, not a racial Ideology, as much as religious ideology as it’s other two sisters-(Christianity and Islam) where all Three of them have reached their respective followers at different stages, and still are doing so. The fathers of Zionism themselves knew this and never claimed what Mr IlanReiber and other modern day Zionists are claiming, there are also plenty of other Jews today, whether Zionist leanings or not, like Yehuda Bauer, Shlomo Sand and many others who are saying the same thing-(i.e., that the Jews of today have different descendants, some European, some African, and some Middle-Eastern ect, and all embraced Judaism at different stages). So is there a need for “[snipping]” everytime one state such? Cause I think is being a little overtly sensitive to certain group’s sentiment, and in this case may I add a bit double-stander, when visitors here have stated “worse” about Muslims and Islam, and just like the Muslim LoonWatchers have corrected those visitors statements regarding them and their religion, so can Jew LoonWatchers do the same as well, and I don’t think none of us really need administration to come in for difference of opinions, I think Just Stopping By and others are smart enough fellow to do just that, and they’ve done it many times, even on this very thread.

  • @ “Believing Athiest” – I don’t believe I said anything about not having time to update it. It just never occurred to me to do so. My blog posts were so obvious in making clear my changing viewpoints, as well as comments on my blog posts, that it simply never entered my mind to update the “About” page until you tried to use it to “expose” me.

    My reasons for not becoming “official” are several and would probably take up too much space; but let me see if I can be brief.

    I believe in reincarnation and karma, which does not fit in with any major interpretation of Islam with which I am familiar. I believe it is compatible with the Qur’an, by understanding the use of symbolism and imagery in the Qur’an. But most Muslims would probably consider my view as ‘heresy’ or some such thing.

    Also, I do not know Arabic, and so cannot say prayers in Arabic; and obviously I can’t follow along with the prayers at a Friday prayer service. I don’t believe in the necessity in praying in an “unknown tongue” – English seems just fine to me – and so I don’t feel the need to try to mimic the sounds in order to join in public prayer, nor do I feel the need to pay to take Arabic lessons in order to learn the language.

    One more thing is that, as I said that I am muslim “in spirit”, I’m not at all sure that following the “letter” of the outward rituals is at all necessary. I believe that the rituals are like instructional material; if the lessons of the instruction manual have been learned and internalized, one doesn’t need to continue reading the manual as it were. The primary aim of the rituals, it seems to me, is to teach people to be constantly aware of God and honor Him in all of our thoughts, words, and deeds. As God has impressed that lesson on me gradually over the years without any reference to the rituals of Islam, I see no need to take up those rituals now.

    Obviously, my Muslim friends will disagree with my evaluation; but I’m sure they will be willing to let God be my Judge.

    By the way, as an aside, although I am no longer an ‘orthodox’ or ‘fundamentalist’ Christian, nor am I a ‘Deist’, and I have thoroughly repudiated many beliefs related to those systems, I am deeply grateful that God gave me the opportunity to experience those systems. They were an important part of my ‘training’, as far as I am concerned. And I’m still “in training” in some ways, so there is no predicting where I’ll be in another 2 or 3 years if God permits me to live on earth that long.

  • Believing Atheist

    @Stephen Parker,

    You claim: “I find the Qur’an to be a true and infallible message from God, without internal inconsistency.”

    If you love the Quran and Allah so much and believe in the Quran’s infallible message , what’s stopping you from taking the Shahada and becoming a full-blown capital “M” Muslim? That’s the natural and rational step to take, to express this love.

    Second, you have updated your blog with new info and posts constantly since 2009, are you telling me that you did not have the time to update your “About Page to include the fact that you’re a “muslim in spirit”? How did you have the time to update your blog with new info and new posts?
