David Wood’s Hypocrisy
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,
David Wood has gone off into desperation again. Recently he’s been promoting the view that all Muslims should protest and speak out against violent acts done by fellow Muslims, regardless of whether the act was done because the person was motivated by Islam or not. Which is a bit odd, since David Wood himself, remained silent when Muslims were being attacked:
- US Joplin Mosque Burned Down.
- Muslim Graves Defaced, Masjids Shot At, Acid Thrown on Islamic School.
- Firebomb Attacks on Muslims.
- CNN Reports atleast 7 Masjids were Attacked in Ramadan.
Therefore I must question David’s lowly integrity. On what basis does he demand all Muslims be blamed for the acts of others, when he himself, is silent when Muslims are violently attacked in his own nation? David must remove his blinders and lay low on the alcohol or the communion wine, because as it is, the double standards he uses are growing quite pathetic, which says alot about his personal integrity. What’s worse, is that I personally believe that David has a literacy problem, in a recent post on his blog, he says:
Can’t CAIR, ISNA, and their Muslim and non-Muslim supporters spare a few minutes of their endless complaint-time to inform Muslims in Pakistan (and Egypt, and Iraq, and Sudan, etc.) that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance?
Well David, the problem is that either you can’t read, or willing choose to insult the intelligence of your viewership. A simple search brings up a CAIR news release on the same issue:
- CAIR Calls for Release of Pakistani Girl.
- American Muslims [CAIR] Slam Arrest of Pakistani Girl.
- CAIR Calls for Release of Girl on Blasphemy Charge.
Even ISNA, has released a press statement on this issue:
ISNA Calls for Release of Christian Girl in Pakistan
(Washington, DC – August 24, 2012) The Islamic Society of North America condemns the arrest of Ramsha Masih, a young Christian girl who was accused of burning pages from a book that included verses from the Qur’an. It is believed that the girl suffers from Down syndrome.
According to Islamic law, a person who is both a minor and has an intellectual disability cannot be held accountable for his/her actions. “I ask the Pakistani Muslim community to act with compassion and restraint,” said ISNA President Imam Mohamed Magid. “We call on the government of Pakistan to immediately release Ramsha to her family and ensure their safety.”
ISNA remains deeply concerned about the treatment of religious minorities in Muslim-majority communities and has been engaged in work to address this issue for the past several years. In 2011, following the assassination of Minister of Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti and Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer, ISNA called on the Pakistani government to take every measure necessary to secure the rights of religious minorities in Pakistan, as well as their safety and those of their places of worship. Within the past year, we have continued to work on these issues by consulting with Muslim scholars from around the world to create a mechanism for Islamic standards and protocols on the rights of religious minorities in the Muslim-majority communities.From: ISNA e-Newsletter <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Therefore, I renew my calls for David Wood to apply the same standards he applies to Muslims and if he dares, we hope he attempts to atleast research something before publishing ignorant comments.
wa Allaahu Alam,
and God knows best.
