Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital, heard a Muslim

orchestra, seen a Muslim band march in a parade, witnessed

a Muslim charity, shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout,

seen a Muslim Candy Striper, or seen a Muslim do

anything that contributes positively to the American

way of life ????


The answer is no, you did not. Just ask yourself WHY ???


Barack Obama,
during his Cairo speech, said:
"I know, too, that Islam has always been a part
of America's history."


AN AMERICAN
CITIZEN'S RESPONSE:

Dear Mr. Obama:


Were those
Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims
first landed? Funny, I thought they were
Native American Indians.


Were those
Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving
day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and
Native American Indians.


Can you
show me one Muslim signature on the United
States Constitution?


Declaration
of Independence ?


Bill of
Rights?


Didn't
think so.


Did
Muslims fight for this country's freedom from
England ? No.


Did
Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the
slaves in America ? No, they did
not. In fact, Muslims to this day are
still the largest traffickers in human
slavery.. Your own half-brother, a devout
Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even
though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black
Muslims as "pug nosed slaves." Says a lot
of what the Muslim world really thinks of your
family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr.
Obama?


Where were
Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this
country? Not present.


There are
no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking
side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or
helping to advance the cause of Civil
Rights.


Where were
Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage
era? Again, not present. In fact,
devout Muslims demand that women are subservient
to men in the Islamic culture. So much so,
that often they are beaten for not wearing the
'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a
direct family member or their husband.
Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights,
aren't they?


Where were
Muslims during World War II? They were
aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim
grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler,
reviewed the troops and accepted support from
the Nazi's in killing Jews.

Finally,
Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th,
2001? If they weren't flying planes into
the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field
in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on
our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle
East . No one can dispute the pictures
shown from all parts of the Muslim world
celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other
cable news networks that day. Strangely,
the very "moderate" Muslims who's asses you bent
over backwards to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June
4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To
many Americans, their silence has meant approval
for the acts of that day.


And THAT, Mr.
Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here
in America ..

Oh, I'm sorry, I
forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates.
They were Muslim.

And now we can
add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American
soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a
doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be
counseling soldiers returning from battle in
Iraq and Afghanistan ..

That, Mr. Obama
is the "Muslim heritage" in America
.
Muslim Heritage, my ass.

You know, that's a damn good point.
There are a multitude of church charities, Catholic charities, religious funded hospitals & services for the needy.
Church doctor groups who go overseas to help out 3rd world people with free medical care, or dental care.
American Red Cross, Salvation Army, etc.
But you never see Muslims helping anybody out. You see them blowing people up, chopping heads off, mutilating & murdering their own children, their own wives. They're worse than useless, they're just crazy & dangerous. Should be declared pest animals, no better than a cur dog with rabies.

They own all the 7-11s. Pretty good at mixing in with the general population. Quite the business savvy, for sure.

I was riding on the Mayflower
When I thought I spied some land
I yelled for Captain Arab
I have yuh understand
Who came running to the deck
Said, “Boys, forget the whale
Look on over yonder
Cut the engines
Change the sail
Haul on the bowline”
We sang that melody
Like all tough sailors do
When they are far away at sea

“I think I’ll call it America”
I said as we hit land
I took a deep breath
I fell down, I could not stand
Captain Arab he started
Writing up some deeds
He said, “Let’s set up a fort
And start buying the place with beads”
Just then this cop comes down the street
Crazy as a loon
He throw us all in jail
For carryin’ harpoons

Ah me I busted out
Don’t even ask me how
I went to get some help
I walked by a Guernsey cow
Who directed me down
To the Bowery slums
Where people carried signs around
Saying, “Ban the bums”
I jumped right into line
Sayin’, “I hope that I’m not late”
When I realized I hadn’t eaten
For five days straight

I went into a restaurant
Lookin’ for the cook
I told them I was the editor
Of a famous etiquette book
The waitress he was handsome
He wore a powder blue cape
I ordered some suzette, I said
“Could you please make that crepe”
Just then the whole kitchen exploded
From boilin’ fat
Food was flying everywhere
And I left without my hat

Now, I didn’t mean to be nosy
But I went into a bank
To get some bail for Arab
And all the boys back in the tank
They asked me for some collateral
And I pulled down my pants
They threw me in the alley
When up comes this girl from France
Who invited me to her house
I went, but she had a friend
Who knocked me out
And robbed my boots
And I was on the street again

Well, I rapped upon a house
With the U.S. flag upon display
I said, “Could you help me out
I got some friends down the way”
The man says, “Get out of here
I’ll tear you limb from limb”
I said, “You know they refused Jesus, too”
He said, “You’re not Him
Get out of here before I break your bones
I ain’t your pop”
I decided to have him arrested
And I went looking for a cop

I ran right outside
And I hopped inside a cab
I went out the other door
This Englishman said, “Fab”
As he saw me leap a hot dog stand
And a chariot that stood
Parked across from a building
Advertising brotherhood
I ran right through the front door
Like a hobo sailor does
But it was just a funeral parlor
And the man asked me who I was

I repeated that my friends
Were all in jail, with a sigh
He gave me his card
He said, “Call me if they die”
I shook his hand and said goodbye
Ran out to the street
When a bowling ball came down the road
And knocked me off my feet
A pay phone was ringing
It just about blew my mind
When I picked it up and said hello
This foot came through the line

Well, by this time I was fed up
At tryin’ to make a stab
At bringin’ back any help
For my friends and Captain Arab
I decided to flip a coin
Like either heads or tails
Would let me know if I should go
Back to ship or back to jail
So I hocked my sailor suit
And I got a coin to flip
It came up tails
It rhymed with sails
So I made it back to the ship

Well, I got back and took
The parkin’ ticket off the mast
I was ripping it to shreds
When this coastguard boat went past
They asked me my name
And I said, “Captain Kidd”
They believed me but
They wanted to know
What exactly that I did
I said for the Pope of Eruke
I was employed
They let me go right away
They were very paranoid

Well, the last I heard of Arab
He was stuck on a whale
That was married to the deputy
Sheriff of the jail
But the funniest thing was
When I was leavin’ the bay
I saw three ships a-sailin’
They were all heading my way
I asked the captain what his name was
And how come he didn’t drive a truck
He said his name was Columbus
I just said, “Good luck”

Wintu Woman, 19th Century

"When we Indians kill meat, we eat it all up. When we dig roots, we make little holes. When we build houses, we make little holes. When we burn grass for grasshoppers, we don't ruin things. We shake down acorns and pine nuts. We don't chop down the trees. We only use dead wood. But the white people plow up the ground, pull down the trees, kill everything. ... the White people pay no attention. ...How can the spirit of the earth like the White man? ... everywhere the White man has touched it, it is sore."

From Chief Joseph, Nez Perces'

"If the white man wants to live in PEACE with the Indian, he can live in peace.....Treat all men alike. Give them all the same law. Give them all an even chance to live and grow. All men were made by the same Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers. The Earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it.......Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade....where I choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to think and talk and act for myself, and I will obey every law, or submit to the penalty."

Yes, some serve.
Besides the 13 Americans killed at Ft Hood, there have been other atrocities commited by muslims in the military also. According to the Pentagon, there are a little over 3,400 muslims serving. Now, How many American GIs have been killed by their so-called Muslim allies in Iraq and Afghanistan? Too many.

In one of the military's most notorious cases of fratricide since Vietnam, Army Sgt. Hasan Akbar, a convert to Islam, rolled a grenade into a tent filled with other soldiers in April 2003. The attack killed two officers and wounded 14 others. During his court-martial, prosecution witnesses testified Sgt. Akbar had committed the attack because he believed the U.S. military would kill Muslim civilians during the coming invasion. Sgt. Akbar was later sentenced to death.

It's too bad that our soldiers have to be careful about who they serve with.

Wow you are one ignorant narrow minded f**ktard.


One wonders what they would say, then, to Cpl. Kareem Rashad Sultan Khan, U.S. Army, Muslim, American, killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq.

Or to Spec. Rasheed Sahib, U.S. Army, Muslim, American, accidentally shot to death by a fellow soldier in Iraq.

Or to Maj. James Ahearn, U.S. Army, Muslim, American, killed by a bomb in Iraq.

Or to Cpt. Humayun Khan, U.S. Army, Muslim, American, killed when he approached a suicide bomber in Iraq.

How many German and Italian American served during WWII ?

Obama says we owe a debt of gratitude to Islam for all the COOL STUFF its given us.


I wish he'd speak for himself coz he sure as hell doesn't believe what I believe about Islam.

We don't owe Islam ANYTHING except a fast trip out of the U.S.


It's hard to tell who the heck he could be talking about here if you're thinking straight. Only a fool would believe all the tripe contained in this one short little clip.

I just love how Obama is SO IMPARTIAL. About Trayvon, About religion - he always seems to be speaking up for the total opposite of what I believe. he's got no business praising Islam, and NO THE U.S. is NOT a Muslim Country. Another lie.

Amusing (kindof) how your little story skirts around the hundreds of Christians who did similar things in Vietnam.

Saint Louis Muslim Community Sets Example for Community Action

by Sheila Musaji

In 2007 Muslims in Saint Louis have worked on more community projects than they have in past years. The success of these projects has been due in large part to the fact that they were intra-community projects involving more than one mosque or organization.

The first of these projects was a Memorial Day week-end BBQ for veterans and staff at the VA Hospital at Jeffersons Barracks which served about 210 people. The event was organized by the St. Louis Muslim Coalition and was very well received.

In September, a fund raising dinner was held to raise donations for Backstoppers to aid the families of police officers and fire fighters from greater St. Louis who have fallen in the line of duty. This event raised $10,000 for Backstoppers.

In October, the Muslim Student Associations (MSA) at Saint Louis University and at Washington University held “fastathons” during Ramadan to raise money for the needy. Since this program began in 2004, it has attracted more participants each year, for example at SLU there were 100 participants in 2004, and 400 this year.

In October, 53 community volunteers (30 kids and 23 adults) served around 130 homeless people in a shelter (New Life Evangelical Center) in down town Saint Louis. There was a wide variety of Indo-Pakistani, Arabic and Persian food. The homeless people appreciated the food and the service very much, and twice gave a big applause for the volunteers. One of the homeless people named Paul told Dr. Bastani that “it is so good that you guys have brought your kids with you to serve, and it is amazing that they are so happy, smiling and eager to serve us”. Another one introduced himself as Hakim, an African American convert to Islam, and requested a Qur’an with English translation.

In November, 16 members (half were kids) of the “Muslim Community of Saint Louis” served food and shared their lunch with some 70 homeless people, including some 20 kids and 20 women, in a shelter run by Water Towers Christian Ministry. The event went very well. Rev. Melvin Roberson, the members of his church, and the homeless were very thankful of the Muslim community who had held the event.

In December, after reading in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the St. Louis Area Food Bank was empty, the community raised $4,700 and 1,000 pounds of meat in one week and delivered it to the food bank. The community also “challenged” other local religious communities to do the same. This was noted by Tim Townsend of the Saint Louis Post Dispatch:

“Responding to a front page article two weeks ago in this newspaper about the near-empty shelves of the St. Louis Area Foodbank, some area Muslims appealed to the greater Muslim community and raised $4,400, plus 1,000 pounds of frozen meat, which they delivered to the food bank earlier this week.

Matt Dace, associate director of the food bank, said that while members of religious groups volunteer their time during food drives, an effort by an entire religious group to gather money and food is unprecedented.”

The press release sent out by the organizers stated:

Last week we read in the Post-Dispatch about the Food Bank being empty. A few of us got together and discussed what we could do, because as Muslims we felt we needed to act quickly to attempt to do something to help.

Islam teaches us that:

They feed, for the love of God, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive,
(saying), “We feed you for the sake of God alone: No reward to we desire
from you, nor thanks.” Qur’an 76:8-9

The Prophet (pbuh) said three times “He is not a believer.” He was
asked “Who is not a believer?” The Prophet responded “The one who
sleeps with a full stomach while his neighbor is hungry.” Hadith

We put out an appeal to the community and were able to collect $4,700 in cash donations, and about 1,000 pounds of meat this week.

We hope to be able to do more in the future. We would also like to challenge other faith communities in Saint Louis to make the same appeal to their communities. If all of the faith communities in the Greater Saint Louis help with this, we should be able to fill the food bank.

This would be a wonderful way to truly celebrate Eid, Christmas, and Hannukah!

Jewish and Muslim volunteers help make Christmas bright

In Giving Back

By Ryan Schuessler / 5:39 pm on Sun, 12.18.11

Apart from the good food, time with family and watching children tear through wrapping paper, the holidays are also a season of volunteerism and charity. From the ringing of Salvation Army bells to delivering food for Meals on Wheels, many people take extra time during the season to do good in their communities.

One local effort has more than altruism as a goal. On Christmas Day, a Jewish and Muslim Day of Service will use volunteerism to bring people of different faiths and backgrounds together. These volunteers will work at various agencies so that their Christian staffers can stay home and celebrate Christmas with their families.

"There's always a beauty in seeing people from different backgrounds, cultures and faiths working together," said Gail Wechsler, director of domestic issues and social justice for the Jewish Community Relations Council of St. Louis. "This is a great example of people coming together."

The council, the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis and the St. Louis section of the National Council of Jewish Women planned the event, but 22 other organizations are involved. Participating organizations include local Jewish and Muslim congregations, the American Civil Liberties Union of Eastern Missouri, Next Door St. Louis and the Young Muslim Community.

"We agree to differ, we promise to love, and we join to serve," volunteer Khalid Shah said.

According to Wechsler, about 300 volunteers from both faiths, of all ages, and from around the area -- West County to downtown -- have registered. People of any and all faiths are welcome to participate.

"We want to show St. Louis is not polarized," she said.

Volunteers will work at the Five Star Senior Center, St. Louis Crisis Nursery, Gateway 180: Homelessness Reversed, and several Delmar Gardens locations, among other sites. They hope to send volunteers to 21 different agencies.

"We feel strongly about doing something with Muslims because we want (people) to get the message that it isn't Muslims that are the enemy," said Linda D'Grosa, a volunteer for the Day of Service. "People are people, and we need to [send] that message."

Charity and tithe are common values shared by most faiths, which Day of Service volunteers hope to demonstrate. In Islam, charity, or "zakat," is one of the Five Pillars, or basic tenets, of Islam. Jews use the word "tzedakah" to describe living a spiritual life in part through altruism. And in the Christian tradition, the classical Greek word "agape" describes acting through God's love for all people.

"I think when we talk from a faith perspective, there is much more strength in unity. We have to be able to show that unity," said Shah, who participates in local Jewish-Muslim dialogue groups.

"We're serving our community," he added. "This is all our community." Shah will be volunteering with several close Jewish friends.

The JCRC and the Islamic Foundation hosted a similar event last year on Christmas Eve. After its success, the idea was expanded to what it is today, with the NCJW coming on board as a third co-sponsor.

"We definitely love volunteering, and we especially love volunteering as a family," said D'Grosa, who will be volunteering with her husband and four children. "It's a great message to give our kids. It's really important to do what we can to heal the world. So, we are doing this, and we have done other projects as a family, and we just thought this was a great opportunity."

Jewish & Muslim Day of Service
Sunday, December 25, 2011 | 09:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Drawing on the shared value of community service, the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis, the Jewish Community Relations Council of St. Louis (JCRC) and the National Council of Jewish Women-St. Louis Section (NCJW) are sponsoring the first ever St. Louis area-wide “Jewish and Muslim Day of Service.”

21 community service sites that will need volunteers on December 25th. Jewish and Muslim volunteers will be working side by side at the various agencies. There will be projects suitable for young children, projects that involve going out into the community, and projects that are site-based. A sampling:

Gateway 180: Homelessness Reversed homeless shelter
Delmar Gardens (several locations)
Five Star Senior Center
Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry
St. Louis Crisis Nursery (St. Louis City and St. Charles locations)
And many more!

The day begins with a free Welcome Breakfast at the Jewish Community Center, Staenberg Complex, A & E Building, at 9 AM. Then volunteers will head out to their community service sites. Please consider participating in this wonderful opportunity to give back in unity with members of the Muslim community on Christmas Day.

JEWISH AND MUSLIM CHRISTMAS DAY OF SERVICE
AIMS TO SERVE THOSE IN NEED

November 8, 2011 -- On Christmas Day, the Jewish Community Relations Council of St. Louis (JCRC), the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis and the National Council of Jewish Women- St. Louis Section (NCJW) are sponsoring the first ever St. Louis area-wide “Jewish and Muslim Day of Service.”

The two religious communities are working together to organize and participate in a large scale Christmas Day of Service project. Twenty-one agencies have been identified in the St. Louis area as sites that will host needed volunteers on Christmas.

"This project represents a unique partnership of the broad Jewish and Muslim communities coming together to reach out and offer service to the Christian community on its Christmas holiday,” says Phyllis Markus, chair of JCRC’s Bohm Social Justice Initiative and a co-chair of this event. “Through this joint effort we will build stronger ties with each other, develop greater understanding and forge long lasting relationships."

Having volunteers on site means that members of the Christian community will be able to take the day off to spend with their families. It also means that a little more joy and cheer will come to children, the elderly and others who must spend their Christmas Day residing in a facility away from home and family. Although the event is being organized by the Jewish and Muslim Communities, volunteers of all backgrounds and faiths are encouraged to participate.

Jewish and Muslim volunteers will be working side by side throughout the day at the various agencies. The event will kick off at 9:00 AM at the Jewish Community Center in Creve Coeur (Staenberg Complex) with a volunteer welcome breakfast including a social action blessing and celebration of the purpose and meaning of the event. Participants will leave from there to blanket the community at the various sites.
“We are very happy to partner with the Jewish community on this project,” said Zubaida Ibrahim, co-chair of the Day of Service on behalf of co-sponsor the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis. “Both of our faiths’ traditions emphasize the importance of charity and this is a great way for us to engage in charitable acts together.”

Some examples of volunteer sites and activities are:

Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry- packing up goods to be donated to those in need.
5 Star Senior Center- delivering hot meals to homebound seniors throughout the region.
St. Louis Crisis Nursery (both St. Louis City and St. Charles, Mo. locations) - doing activities with the children and sharing a meal with them.
Gateway 180: Homelessness Reversed (a homeless shelter for families and women)-doing a makeover project at the shelter.

In addition to the three sponsoring organizations, the complete list of supporting organizations, to date can be found at www.jcrcstl.org.

The program includes a toiletry donation drive with six drop off points. The drop off locations are: Congregation B’nai Amoona, Central Reform Congregation, Congregation Shaare Emeth, Daar Ul Islam Mosque, JCC Early Childhood Center-Creve Coeur and Temple Emanuel. Donations gathered at these sites will be dispersed among three area non-profits that are sites for the Jewish and Muslim Day of Service: Mercy Hospital, Bi-Lingual International Assistance Services and the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry.

Quote from bones01:
Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital, heard a Muslim

orchestra, seen a Muslim band march in a parade, witnessed

a Muslim charity, shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout,

seen a Muslim Candy Striper, or seen a Muslim do

anything that contributes positively to the American

way of life ????


The answer is no, you did not. Just ask yourself WHY ???


Barack Obama,
during his Cairo speech, said:
"I know, too, that Islam has always been a part
of America's history."


Yes to everything but the hospital (I try to avoid them in general) and the Girl Scouts (a Christian org). I suspect you have as well without realizing it, most American Muslims are Anglo-Saxon converts.

While I do offer kudos to the muslims in St Louis, for what they are doing, I do question their motives.
Islam in America is basically whatever the cleric wants it to be.

I am sure there are many mosques. who do not teach about Muhammed, remember he is not in the Qur'an, so his works can be hiddin from most.

I commend these people, and wonder why they do not change their name, as not to be confused withh Islam.

But what to you do with the flock, just lie to them.
What do you say when the 12 year old questions why you are feeding christians when it says very plainly we are supposed to kill them.
I am all for re-writing Islam, but any venture into it will get you killed, except in America.

If we use the Quranic verse quoted from Qur'an 76, we need to put it into context.
This was halfway through his 20 year reign of terror
This was right after Muhammed returned to Mecca, with an army of mercenaries, and took the city, killing all who opposed,
He murdered all of the leaders who threw him out a few years earlier.
He estlablished Islam as the religion of mecca.
All of his preaching there is to muslims only and the group he is a member of, and is in charge of.

There are many Quranic Quotes that are purposly taken out of context for the purpose of calming the public, because the puplic does not know the conditions of the Quote.

Ps, this same Sura also introduces the young boys who will service you in the afterlife.

Not at all, in fact I aplaud any group that does it.
It is just that charity work from muslims to non-muslims is unIslamic.

It is basically helping the enemy.

But as I said, many muslim groups in America are not expressing islam as it is writtin, something that would get them killed in Saudia arabia.

Jom, your bigotry is so obvious and so skewed that it's hard to believe that you can't see it yourself.

For one, you don't know shit about Islam other than the hateful shit that you chose to read over all of the other texts and teaching that you chose to ignore.

People like you are a greater threat to our country than almost any Muslim.

And you will notice not one single muslim can stand up to me in a direct Question and answer.

They are following Islam and can show you in writing that what they are doing is for allah, and as long as we allow this cult in the civilized countries it is something we have to deal with.

I am involved with a civic group that deals with muslims and exposes Islam to the American people.
Mostly we deal with abused women and help them escape/

And over the year I have dealt with hundred

I also have in my home a full collection or all the Islamic text.
When I say all i am reffering to
The 5 main sourses.
I have about 8 accepted english translations of Quran, and many of the Qur;an ans sunnah in other languages.
Any refference I give I post the book and sura number.

Wanna try me.

And right there is where you're totally wrong.

Any time you meet someone who claims to know more about your religion than you do, you know you're talking to a bigot.

You stir up dissent based on generalizations that have no real world application, other than in your attempts to paint people as evil.

You are a greater danger to this country's welfare than most Muslims.

I did, and I doubt you know how to read it correctly to understand it.
But don't feel bad, most muslims don't either.

and BTW the Qur'an is only about 10% of the islamic writings and says virtually nothing of Islam itself.

There are many exceptions in all groups and religions.
There are many muslims who do not follow the Qur'an and sunnah, who are wonderful people.

I attack them ruthlessly for lying.

and I do not tell them what they believe in,
I tell them what is writtin and what they are ordered by their religion to believe.

I have been in this too long not to be able to see right off the bat when a muslim is lying to me.
He can pull the woll on you, but
after all he is supposed to lie to me,
It is part of the religion.

Most infidels cannot put up an arguement, but I take them by supprise,
they test me and then, they all run away.

If what you are saying is true about them getting killed for doing charity work for others, maybe that's why they don't want to live there.

The article that I posted about the Muslims' charitable work in my city said:

"Islam teaches us that:

They feed, for the love of God, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive,
(saying), “We feed you for the sake of God alone: No reward to we desire
from you, nor thanks.” Qur’an 76:8-9

The Prophet (pbuh) said three times “He is not a believer.” He was
asked “Who is not a believer?” The Prophet responded “The one who
sleeps with a full stomach while his neighbor is hungry.” Hadith"

That kind of philosophy is not compatable with the laws and customs of the United states.

I could post similar sura's for hours,


Tabari IX:113
"Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur'an."

Tabari I:280
"Allah said, 'It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.' Because Allah afflicted Eve, all of the women of this world menstruate and are stupid."


Bukhari:V3B48N826

"The Prophet said, 'Isn't the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?' The women said, 'Yes.' He said, 'This is because of the deficiency of a woman's mind.'"
