From the He-Said-It Department, via MEMRITV, with thanks to Sr. Soph: “Lebanese Terrorist-Turned-Researcher Anis Al-Naqqash in Support of Terror Attacks in London, the US, and Arab Countries: ‘Islam Is One of the Greatest Advocates of Violence, When Violence Is Warranted'”:
The following are excerpts from an interview with Lebanese researcher Anis Al-Naqqash, which aired on Al-Manar TV on August 3, 2005…
Al-Naqqash: The claims about Islam’s renunciation of violence are meaningless, unfounded, and illogical. Why? Because Islam is one of the greatest advocates of violence, when violence is warranted, and one of the greatest advocates of peace and compassion, when compassion is warranted.
Islam is the religion of life in general, and not a blind religion. Islam does not surrender to foreign aggression. So stating categorically that Islam is a religion of love that rejects violence — This is a big lie. “Take them and kill them wherever you find them.” This is taken from the words of Allah (the Koran). About whom? About Allah’s enemies. This is violence.
Oh Naqqash, you Islamophobe. Read it all.
