"Beyond Belief"

BBC Radio 4’s Beyond Belief today asked “Is there anything inherent in Islam that predisposes it towards violence or is it being unfairly demonised?

And who was on to defend Islam against accusations of inherent violence? None other than old two-face himself, Azzam Tamimi.
Presenter Ernie Rea: Azzam, why do you think Islam is so often portrayed as a violent religion?

Tamimi: People look at phenomena without seeking to see why they exist in the first place. Usually people need a justification for why they resort to violence and that justification is conveniently found in religion and found in ideology. In my opinion ideology or religion don’t instigate or provoke violence but they are convenient explanatory paradigms.
Here’s Tamimi using a "convenient explanatory paradigm" to justify the destruction of Israel earlier this year:

One of the other guests was dhimmi scholar John Esposito. There’s more on him at Dhimmi Watch.

To hear this week’s edition of Beyond Belief (and trust me, the stuff they come out with is just that) follow this link and use the drop-down menu to select “Islam and the Sword” (RealPlayer required).

Do you think anyone at the BBC has seen this video of Tamimi, howling like a dog?

Who is howling like a dog? Tamimi or "anyone at the BBC"?

They don't howl like dogs because they don't appreciate the sterling, brave and loving qualities of dogs. Dogs are are haram.

Could we please have a survey of how dogs feel about mohammedans?

My wild guess, the dogs may harbour similar hatred - with good reason. I won't say anything is more feral than a muzzie, but dogs have longer, sharper teeth.

What is it with the BBC?! Just read a news article there...
and they had this Map of Israel.

Why are they marking the Golan Hights as under Syrian control?! the general public is misinformed as it is...

The mohammedans are predisposed to violence because they are brainwashed from birth to take orders from a vicious, barbaric, conquest-seeking "god".

Dunno. I rather like this chap. Quite eloquent. I am sure that I would have enjoyed it more if I knew Arabic.

Er...What? Oh, anyway, I have also liked these two rabbis on the background. Is there a rent-a-Jew agency in London for any occassion like this?
